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

December 10 ~ Part Four: With a Despairing Soul

Theme:  Conversations with the Merciful Savior

(Continued)

“Soul: ‘O Lord, I am inundated with Your grace. I sense that a new life has entered into me and, above all, I feel Your love in my heart. That is enough for me. O Lord, I will glorify the omnipotence of Your mercy for all eternity. Encouraged by Your goodness, I will confide to You all the sorrows of my heart.’

“Jesus: ‘Tell Me all, My child, hide nothing from Me, because My loving Heart, the Heart of your Best Friend, is listening to you.’

“Soul: ‘O Lord, now I see all my ingratitude and Your goodness. You were pursuing me with Your grace, while I was frustrating Your benevolence. I see that I deserve the depths of hell for spurning Your graces.’

“Jesus (interrupting): ‘Do not be absorbed in your misery – you are still too weak to speak of it – but, rather, gaze on My Heart filled with goodness, and be imbued with My sentiments. Strive for meekness and humility; be merciful to others, as I am to you; and, when you feel your strength failing, if you come to the fountain of mercy to fortify your soul, you will not grow weary on your journey.’

“Soul: ‘Now I understand Your mercy, which protects me and like a brilliant star, leads me into the home of my Father, protecting me from the horrors of hell that I have deserved, not once, but a thousand times. O Lord, eternity will hardly suffice for me to give due praise to Your unfathomable mercy and Your compassion for me.’” (Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 1486d)

My prayer response:

Lord Jesus, please draw souls overwhelmed by their miseries to gaze at Your Heart filled with goodness. Draw them to the fountain of Your Divine Mercy to strengthen them on their journey through life. Teach them to be meek and humble. And teach them to be merciful to others as You are to them.
