Robert - I think my concern was more that the Divine Mercy novena - much of which ends up being during the Octave - focuses heavily on the Passion rather than on the Resurrection. It isn't so much the focus on mercy and therefore, in a sense, on us, that was my concern. If the prayer said in the chaplet changed, on Easter Sunday, to something like "For the sake of his glorious Resurrection ...," then I'd perhaps have thought differently.
