Divine Mercy Novena finally in our church

The Divine Mercy Novena finally started in our church Good Friday. The gentleman doing it just says the intention, opening prayer, chaplet and closing prayer. It takes about 12 minutes. He asked if there was anything else we’d like to add. I suggested a gospel reading.

Any thoughts from those that do the novena in a gathering at church?

For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
