Mercy Minutes (from Saint Faustina’s Diary)

October 6 ~ To Live and Die Like a Holy Soul

Theme:  Sanctity, Holiness

“Profound silence engulfs my soul. Not a single cloud hides the sun from me. I lay myself entirely open to its rays, that His love may effect a complete transformation in me. I want to come out of this retreat a saint, and this, in spite of everything; that is to say, in spite of my wretchedness, I want to become a saint, and I trust that God’s mercy can make a saint even out of such misery as I am, because I am utterly in good will.” (Mercy Minutes, Diary, 1333a)

“In spite of all my defeats, I want to go on fighting like a holy soul and to comport myself like a holy soul. I will not be discouraged by anything, just as nothing can discourage a soul who is holy. I want to live and die like a holy soul, with my eyes fixed on You, Jesus, stretched out on the Cross, as the model for my actions.” (Mercy Minutes, Diary, 1333b)
