Dear brothers and sisters of this group, we inform you that. In the School of Divine Mercy, before the 20th day of preparation, we usually do the meditation of the 24 hours of the Passion of Christ.
Each person has to meditate at least one hour of the Passion of Christ. The meditation begins on Thursday at 5:00 pm and ends on Friday at 5:00 pm.

The important thing, to accept with humility and obedience this task, knowing, when we plan to accompany the Lord in his passion, we are the ones who will leave with consolation that we will not receive anywhere, only in Him.

Why is it necessary to meditate on the Passion of Christ?

The King of Mercy tells us:

“There is more merit to one hour of meditation on My sorrowful Passion than there is to a whole year of flagellation that draws blood; the contemplation of My painful wounds is of great profit to you, and it brings Me great joy. I am surprised that you still have not completely renounced your self-will, but I rejoice exceedingly that this change will be accomplished during the retreat” (Diary, 369).
