Mercy Minutes with Jesus (from Saint Faustina’s Diary)

August 6 ~ You Are Sovereign

Theme:  Graces of Retreats

“At the beginning of the retreat, Jesus told me, ‘During this retreat, I myself will direct your soul. I want to confirm you in peace and love.’ And so the first few days passed by. On the fourth day, doubts began to trouble me: Is not this tranquility of mine false? Then I heard these words, ‘My daughter, imagine that you are the sovereign of all the world and have the power to dispose of all things according to your good pleasure. You have the power to do all the good you want, and suddenly a little child knocks on your door, all trembling and in tears and, trusting in your kindness, asks for a piece of bread lest he die of starvation.

‘What would you do for this child? Answer Me, my daughter.’ And I said, ‘Jesus, I would give the child all it asked and a thousand times more.’ And the Lord said to me, ‘That is how I am treating your soul.’(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 229a)

(To be continued)

My prayer response:

Lord Jesus, thank You for directing our souls in times of retreat and prayer. Since You are Sovereign over the whole world, direct our prayers and our lives according to Your will. Thank You for Your astounding goodness towards us in our times of need. (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
