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

January 29 ~ Spiritual Mercy

Theme:  Deeds of Mercy

“I understand Your words, Lord, and the magnitude of the mercy that ought to shine in my soul. Jesus: ‘I know, My daughter, that you understand it and that you do everything within your power. But write this for the many souls who are often worried because they do not have the material means with which to carry out an act of mercy. Yet spiritual mercy, which requires neither permissions nor storehouses, is much more meritorious and is within the grasp of every soul.

‘If a soul does not exercise mercy somehow or other, it will not obtain My mercy on the day of judgment. Oh, if only souls knew how to gather eternal treasure for themselves, they would not be judged, for they would forestall My judgment with their mercy.’(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 1317)

My prayer response:

My Jesus, thank You for teaching us through Saint Faustina about “spiritual mercies” when we do not have material goods to give. We can always encourage others by our word, by our prayer and by our kindness – and especially by sacrifice lovingly accomplished, which You, Jesus, called “exercising mercy in spirit.” (Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary 1316)
