Divine Mercy After Suicide


She struggled in life.  She committed suicide.  But there’s still hope!

Every one of us has known someone who took his or her own life, or someone whose life was affected by the suicide of a loved one. It’s so difficult to face this reality, and often people despair. Many give up hope for those who have committed suicide and believe their souls are lost.
But now I never give up. Instead, I pray. Let me tell you why:
I’m an engineer by degree. I got my MBA from the University of Michigan and worked as an engineering manager in the tough auto industry of Detroit. I made great money, enjoyed the work, and loved the area. On paper, God had given me everything a young man could desire; yet, it seemed as if something was missing.
I decided to move to the Charlotte area of North Carolina and start my own business. It quickly became very successful. I had a house, a boat, and planned to marry a beautiful young lady from the local area. But something was still missing.
Being a “cradle Catholic,” but not one who was really practicing my faith, I decided to start going to Mass again. I discovered a church in North Carolina that I still call home: St. Mark’s in Huntersville. It used to jokingly be called “Our Lady of the Lanes,” because it began with 12 families in a bowling alley. It grew to over 15,000 people in six short years. I started going to Adoration there and ended up doing something I would recommend to all of you: I made a general Confession.
In a general Confession, you mentally walk through your life, confessing your sins as you go.
My general Confession helped me tremendously as I recalled sins from grade school up through my professional career. I began to feel these burdens lifted off my shoulders.
So, while I was confessing my life’s sins in 2003, I got to the year 1993. I told the priest, “What happened in 1993 still bothers me. It was my grandmother’s death.”

My grandmother’s suicide

My grandmother, Mary Alar, was a special lady. My father told many stories about her, including how her family removed her from school in the sixth grade so she could work as a maid to help support them. Then, two days before her wedding day, her fiancé was killed in an auto accident. Later, she met my grandfather, but her life was still quite difficult. By 1993, she was suffering greatly — emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It became unbearable for her. At the time, I was finishing college and didn’t even know how much pain my grandmother was enduring. In a shock to me, my grandmother committed suicide on Father’s Day.
I didn’t realize how much of a knuckle- head I was at the time. Ten years later, I told my confessor that I was not “there for her” — even at the funeral. I mean, I was there physically, but not emotionally or spiritually. I was so concerned about my degree, my job, my new home, and my girlfriend, that I don’t even remember praying for her.
I told him that this bothered me, because my grandmother had already been judged by God, and I missed my opportunity to pray for her and help her. What I really feared most arose from something I’d heard long ago about the Church teaching that if you commit suicide, you automatically go to hell.
Then the priest did something that changed my life. He said, “Go home tonight and pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for the salvation of your grandmother’s soul. This is an incredibly powerful prayer.” I had never heard of the Chaplet. I said, “Huh? Father, she’s already been judged, so it’s too late. She died 10 years ago! She’s in Heaven (I hope) or hell (I hope not). At best, my prayers might relieve some of her time in Purgatory, if she even made it that far, but her eternal fate has already been determined. There is nothing that can be done about that now.”
He said, “Look, God is outside of time. There is no past or future for God, but only one big eternal present moment. God sees everything at one instant. From the beginning of time to the end of the world, He sees it all instantaneously without compromising our free will. How do you think that the Virgin Mary was immaculately conceived?” I said, “By the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.” He said, “Yes, but how could Mary be immaculately conceived by these merits when Jesus hadn’t even been born yet? Because God is outside of time. Your prayers are eternal, and the graces given by God from those prayers, because He is not constrained by space or time, can go in any direction: past, present, or future. Christ’s sacrifice is eternally present before the Father, and so are our prayers if we unite them to the Cross of Christ.”
I sat there shaking my head, saying, “Wow, Father, this is amazing.” But I still wasn’t totally getting it. It sounded too good to be true. He continued, “Think of it this way, Chris. God knew back in 1993 that you would be here today, in 2003, and tonight you would pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for your grandmother’s soul. And since God is so merciful, so loving, He will put those prayers into the hands of Mary, the Mediatrix of All Graces, and He will allow those prayers from today to be carried back in Mary’s hands and showered over your grandmother’s soul back in 1993, at the moment of her judgment, to help her.”
He continued, “You see, suicide is a grave sin, and she will need all the help she can get. So with God’s grace, through your prayers, she may be better able to say ‘yes’ to God.” (That is why John Paul II called each of us “mini co-redeemers” — because we can share in Christ’s act of redemption). 
The priest added, “In the Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska, she records that Jesus visited the despairing soul three times to save it from hell (Diary, 1486), so we can infer that the souls of our loved ones have the chance to repent, say ‘yes’ to Him, and be saved.”
I said, “Father, we’re good here then, because there’s no way my grandmother will not say ‘yes’ to Jesus when she sees Him. This is awesome! Thank you, Father. Have a great day.”

Blinded by sin

He stopped me: “Hold on — there’s a problem. You said she had fallen away from the Church. Do you know if she received the Sacraments?”
“I don’t know,” I replied.
“The problem,” he said, “is your grandmother, for whatever reason, may have turned her back on God. If this is the case, she may not recognize Jesus when He comes.”
“Oh, man,” I said. “I thought all was good, but now I am worried that she could be lost because she might not recognize Jesus, and therefore be unable to say ‘yes’ to Him!”
“You didn’t let me finish,” he said. “She may not recognize Him without your prayers. But with your prayers, she will be given more grace through intercessory prayer allowed by the mercy of God. That is why Mary said at Fatima that there are many souls lost to hell … because there is nobody to pray for them! Your prayers are like a squadron of dive bombers coming in from 2003, to aid in the war being fought for her soul back in 1993. They are coming in on the hands of Mary, back to your grandmother during her personal judgment (again, because God is outside of time). The graces from these Chaplets you pray for her may be enough grace for her to turn around and say ‘yes’ to God when otherwise she wouldn’t be able to.”
The priest went on, “What happens when we sin and turn our backs on God? We put a veil between God and ourselves, blurring our vision of Him. But your prayers can help to lift that veil so that your grandmother may see God more clearly, and she has a much better chance of recognizing God for who
He is. But remember, she has to say “yes” — you cannot say “yes” for her. But you can certainly help. This is the whole point of intercessory prayer.”
My confessor continued, “Your grandmother is like a wounded soldier who cannot help herself as she lies on the battlefield, in danger of death. Your prayers come in like a fellow soldier, putting her on your shoulders, and taking her to safety. Now, she still has to cooperate and let you assist her, and she needs to have the will to live. That choice is hers. But your prayers, Chris, can offer her the help at the moment of her judgment to determine if she survives or not — meaning salvation.”
I said, “Father, this is absolutely amazing.”

Hope for those who’ve committed suicide

I said, “I heard that the Church says that those who commit suicide are condemned to hell and lost forever.” He said, “The Church doesn’t teach that.” What does the Church say about suicide? The Catechism tells us:
Grave psychological disturbances, anguish, or grave fear of hardship, suffering, or torture can diminish the responsibility of the one committing suicide. We should not despair of the eternal salvation of persons who have taken their own lives. By ways known to him alone, God can provide the opportunity for salutary repentance. The Church prays for persons who have taken their own lives (2282- 2283; emphasis added).
“So there is hope!” the priest said. “The Church says that we entrust these people to the mercy of God. So your prayers even now, 10 years later, can make a difference. And the Chaplet of Divine Mercy is one of the most powerful prayers you can offer for someone in dire need of God’s mercy.”
We then talked about a relative who had died after 20 years in which we all prayed for a conversion — and this person never converted, never came back to the Church. I told the priest that my dad said, “Well, there’s 20 years of prayer wasted.”
Is that true? No! Again, he referenced St. Faustina’s Diary, and this added the final straw to the proverbial camel’s back that was my former life. I was now changed forever.
Saint Faustina wrote:
God’s mercy sometimes touches the sinner at the last moment in a wondrous and mysterious way. Outwardly it seems as if everything were lost. [This is what it looked like for my grandmother.] But it is not so. The soul illuminated by a ray of God’s powerful final grace turns to God in the last moment with such a power of love that, in an instant, it receives from God forgiveness of sin and punishment, while outwardly it shows no sign either of repentance or of contrition, because souls [at that stage] no longer react to external things. Oh, how beyond comprehension is God’s mercy! … Although a person is at the point of death, the merciful God gives the soul that interior vivid moment, so that if the soul is willing, it has the possibility of returning to God (Diary, 1698).

Share God’s Mercy

I broke down in disbelief. I said, “Father, we have a God so merciful, so loving, so generous, that He will allow my grandma this chance for salvation? And He will allow me to still help her even though I missed my chance so many years ago?”
He said, “Yes, this is the power of the Chaplet, even for those who have taken their own life or who have died years ago.”
He made it clear that a soul cannot be removed from hell — this is Church teaching. What he was saying, however, is that as part of the Mystical Body of Christ, we can aid in each other’s salvation through our prayers. As Jesus told St. Faustina, “Help Me, My daughter, to save souls. Join your suf- ferings to My Passion and offer them to the heavenly Father for sinners” (Diary, 1032).
I said, “Father, I need to spend the rest of my life spreading this message of God’s Divine Mercy.”
Now, this message is the foundation of my priesthood.
So, if you have ever known someone who appeared to be a lost soul, especially those who committed suicide, don’t give up! There is hope! You can help, and this is all possible because we are members of the Body of Christ.

Pray for the dead!

Therefore, I ask you all to pray for your loved ones who have died, even if they’ve died 10, 20, or 50 years ago. We should never conclude that a soul is definitely lost. As Jesus said to St. Faustina, “There are moments and there are mysteries of the divine mercy over which the heavens are astounded. Let our judgment of souls cease, for God’s mercy upon them is extraordinary” (Diary, 1684).
Jesus, I trust in You!
Note: Ordinarily we pray for people and events that occur in the present moment. However, God may desire that in particular cases we pray for somebody or something in the past — things that pertain directly to us, like family members or loved ones. The Lord entrusts certain things to us to pray for, but perhaps not all things, such as world events that happened centuries ago.

Seven Souls to Pray For

This is a very good article and Fr. Ed gave our ministry a plug as well!

Seven Souls To Pray For This November


The Church dedicates the month of November to praying for the dead. The month begins by remembering All Saints on November 1st, and All Souls on November 2nd. Many parishes hold a special remembrance Mass each year to pray for those who have died over the past 12 months, inviting their families to come to the Church and pray for their loved one’s soul.


As Catholics, we believe that after death there is a period of purification, which occurs in a place called Purgatory. During this month in which we pray for and remember the dead, I wish to propose seven different souls we could pray for, asking God to be merciful to them and bring them into their eternal reward.


1. Parents

One time at Mass, I preached on having Masses said for those who have gone before us. Afterward, a person asked me why they should do that. I gave several reasons, one being, if their soul was detained in Purgatory, it would assist their speedy entry into the Kingdom. The person responded, telling me he believed his parents were in Heaven. Of course, he might have been right, in which case, the Mass intention would have increased their intercessory power for us and accidental glory in Heaven. We know some parents are truly in heaven, as declared by the Church through the process of canonization (i.e. Louis and Zellie Martin, parents of St. Therese; St. Gianna Beretta Molla). The fact is, we shouldn’t canonize our parents; we should pray for them often.


Praying for our parents is an important task, because it is a way that we can still be connected to them from here below. Our prayers are a sign of our affection and love, and the offering a Mass, is a participation in the Heavenly liturgy, which we hope that they too are sharing in, and so we can be united through the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Don’t forget about mom and dad, and if you have a chance, perhaps pay a visit to their grave this November.


2. Youth

It is always tragic when a young person dies. During their short life they could have had a deep friendship with God (as was the case with many of our youthful saints and blesseds, like Bl. Chiara Luce Badano or St. Jose Sanchez del Rio) or it’s possible the brevity of their life didn’t afford them time to repent and make amends for their sins. Especially in our day and age, there are many ways young people can fall into sin; temptation surrounds them in many ways, as it does all of us. This November, when you pray for those who have gone before you, don’t forget those who died in their youth.


3. Those Who Die Unexpectedly and Without the Sacraments

Do you know someone who died tragically in a car accident or someone who had a heart attack and passed quickly?  It’s possible that if they died suddenly and unexpectedly, the person didn’t die fortified with the sacraments.  It also means they might not have had time to repent and make reparation for their sins in this life.  It’s important for us to remember them in prayer and perhaps even make small sacrifices on their behalf to atone for the sins of their life.  It’s a simple way we can help out those we loved.


4. Clergy

The following quote is attributed to many saints, but most likely St. John Chrysostom.  He said, the road to Hell is paved with the skulls of priests and bishops. It is very common for us to canonize our clergy, because of who they were in this life, and their closeness to the sacred mysteries. We believe that they must have already received their eternal reward since they labored in the Lord’s vineyard.  The words of Jesus come to mind, “to whom much is given, more is expected” (Luke 12:36).  It is a great responsibility to have the care of souls.  Perhaps the souls of clergy and religious have things for which they must atone. Don’t forget your favorite priest or pastor who has passed away. Say a prayer for them.


5. For those who committed suicide

As I include those who have taken their own life in this listing, I do not wish to pass judgement on their souls. Unfortunately, in the past, this has been done. Today we rightfully understand the interplay of psychology within the role of our decisions, and as believers, hold a belief that in those last moments they could have cried out to God for mercy. Unfortunately, many people still believe suicide is a mortal sin in all instances, which as mentioned, psychological factors lessen culpability.  This mentality may cause some people to lose hope and never offer prayers for their loved one who died in this manner.


A faithful Catholic woman, June Klins, felt called by God to pray for those lost to suicide.  She shared her story on the Marians of the Immaculate Conception website,  Read about her special calling here:  To fulfill her calling, she maintains a blog and a Facebook page, in which people share names to pray for, and dedicate themselves to this prayerful apostolate.


6. For our Protestant Brothers and Sisters

I am sure you have had friends who were Protestants pass away. Don’t forget to pray for their souls. For the most part, the belief of Purgatory is something believed only by Catholics. For our Protestant brothers and sisters they don’t have much opportunity, if any, for Masses to be offered for their soul, or for prayers to be prayed for their eternal rest. As Catholics, this responsibility falls to us. What a gift you could give your friend, by praying them out of Purgatory and into the kingdom of Heaven.


7. Your Enemies

A while back on social media, I saw a person who rejoiced at the death of someone from their past because of the person’s cruelty toward them. Jesus said in the gospel to do good to those who hate you; love your enemies. When we hear of the passing of someone whom we did not count as a friend, and instead as a foe, offer a prayer for them. It’s a kind thing we can do, and an act of mercy. Perhaps as we forgive and show mercy, God will do the same for us, and that enemy of our ours might return that favor for us, by interceding for you.


Eternal Rest Grant Unto Them O Lord, and Let Perpetual Light Shine Upon Them. May They Rest In Peace.

Scapular protection

I am attending the "Days of Prayer"  at the Carmelite Monastery here and yesterday the priest, who is a very holy and well-read priest, mentioned that if you wear the scapular you cannot commit suicide.  I asked him today where he got this information and he said he read it in a book about the Brown Scapular and also another priest told him the same thing.

I said that the person would have to be enrolled in the scapular, and he said he did not think so.  He thought that if the scapular was blessed by a priest that would suffice.

This is very good information to share with people who feel suicidal.  Please share this!!!!

Thanks for the prayers

The person who sent me the last prayer request told me she found my original story which prompted this group on the Divine Mercy website
There are many comments after the story, but I thought I would share one with you because it might have been your prayers who saved this lady: " A powerful moment of clarity saved me from this terrible decision at the very last moment. I believe it to be the voice of an angel. I am so grateful for your prayers that others may also receive such saving grace. Perhaps it was such prayer that saved me."

Thursday request

Tuesday request

From the Facebook group:
Please pray urgently for a young lady (I assume a teen) who messaged my daughter tonight, out of the blue, saying that she may kill herself tonight. My daughter doesn't know her personally: not her name, age, state or country she lives in, nothing. She only chatted online with her casually almost a year ago. The girl said she's an agnostic, and her father is dead because of her, and her mother is an addict who doesn't visit. Lord Jesus, have mercy on this soul! 💔🙏 My daughter has provided the suicide hotline phone number for her and is obviously trying to help.

Sunday request

From the Facebook group:

Please pray for Robert. The sexual and physical abuse he suffered as a small child damaged him so badly that therapy (getting too painfully close to the repressed trauma) is making him suicidal. Being around his family and his wife are also triggering him. But being alone does too. He needs a miracle. Jesus, please immerse Robert in your Divine Mercy. You are the only one who can heal him and save his soul from this torment.
