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

December 18 ~ Part Two: With a Soul Striving after Perfection

Theme:  Conversations with the Merciful Savior

(Continued)

“Soul: ‘Yes, I know all that but the great temptations assail me, and various doubts awaken within me and, moreover, everything irritates and discourages me.’

“Jesus: ‘My child, know that the greatest obstacles to holiness are discouragement and an exaggerated anxiety. These will deprive you of the ability to practice virtue. All temptations united together ought not disturb your interior peace, not even momentarily.

‘Sensitiveness and discouragement are the fruits of self-love. You should not become discouraged, but strive to make My love reign in place of your self-love. Have confidence, My child. Do not lose heart in coming for pardon, for I am always ready to forgive you. As often as you beg for it, you glorify My mercy.’

“Soul: ‘I understand what is the better thing to do, what pleases You more, but I encounter great obstacles in acting on this understanding.’” (Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 1488b)

(To be continued)

My prayer response:

Lord Jesus, You certainly put Your finger on my problem – exaggerated anxiety. Help me to make Your Love reign in place of my self-love. Please help me always with Your Divine Mercy. (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
