Divine Mercy Catholic Bracelet

Three O'clock in the Afternoon "The hour of the Great Mercy"
As one reads the Diary of St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, one comes upon this little prayer.
You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls and the ocean of mercy
opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop
the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us (Diary, 1319).
Immediately after these words, and without any further explanation, Saint Faustina records this unexpected request of Our Lord.
At three o'clock implore My mercy especially for sinners; and if only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in My Passion, particularly in My abandonment at the moment of agony. This is the hour of great mercy for the whole world... In this hour, I will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of Me in virtue of My passion. (Diary, 1320)
About four months later, attain, without any introduction, Saint Faustina penned these words of Our Lord:
I remind you, My daughter, that as often as you hear the clock strike the third hour, immerse yourself completely in My mercy. Adoring and glorifying it; Invoke its omnipotence for the whole world, and particularly for poor sinners, for at that moment (mercy) was opened wide for every soul. In this hour you can obtain everything for yourself and for others for the asking; it was the hour of grace for the whole world--- Mercy triumphed over justice.
My daughter, try your best to make the Stations of the Cross in this hour, provided that your duties permit it; and if you are not able to make the Stations of the Cross, then at least step into the chapel for a moment and adore in the Blessed Sacrament, My Heart, which is full of mercy; and should be unable to step into the chapel, immerse yourself in prayer there, where you happen to be, if only for a very brief instant, I claim veneration for My mercy from every creature (Diary, 1572).

A remembrance, then, of the hour in which the saving death of Jesus was accomplished; of the hour when all was "finished" and, with His last breath, Jesus bequeathed His Holy Spirit "for the life of the world"; of the hour, too, when our thoughts run to the moment of the piercing of Christ's side; from which there flowed immediately "a fount of mercy for us"; and of the hour in which the kingdom of God was opened for all as for the repentant thief- such a remembrance is an appropriate act of veneration of the Divine Mercy that Jesus appears to desire very much, and, in view of the sweeping promise attached to it, appears, likewise, to prize very highly.
We would do well in this same hour to say another little prayer, taught to Saint Faustina by Our Lord, which she repeated every morning and often during the day to renew her act of consecration to the Divine Mercy:
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You (Diary, 84)

I created this bracelet symbolizing the blood and water gushed from the Heart of Jesus using red Czech. glass and a white Czech. crystal. I added a very unique figural statue of Our Lord Divine Mercy encased in glass.

I added a beautiful vintage medal of St. Christopher, other Catholic medals include Our Lady of Miraculous Medal, Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Archangel St. Raphael, St. Rita and others. I also added very unque two tone glass pearls.
