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

January 27 ~ Deeds Done for Me

Theme:  Deeds of Mercy

“The doctor did not allow me to go to the chapel to attend the Passion Service, although I had a great desire for it; however, I prayed in my own room. Suddenly I heard the bell in the next room, and I went in and rendered a service to a seriously sick person. When I returned to my room, I suddenly saw the Lord Jesus, who said, ‘My daughter, you gave me greater pleasure by rendering Me that service than if you had prayed for a long time.’ I answered, ‘But it was not to You, Jesus, but to that patient that I rendered this service.’ And the Lord answered me, ‘Yes, My daughter, but whatever you do for your neighbor, you do for Me.’(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 1029)

My prayer response:

Thank You, Jesus, for teaching us through Saint Faustina, “…whatever you do for your neighbor, you do for Me” (See Mt 25:40b). Help us, Lord Jesus, to respond with deeds of mercy whenever You appear in the disguise of the needy, as did Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta for the poor, the sick and the dying. (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
