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

February 11 ~ The Seal of Obedience

Theme:  Spiritual Directors and Confessors

“I become absorbed in prayer and said my penance. Then I suddenly saw the Lord, who said to me, ‘My daughter, know that you give Me greater glory by a single act of obedience than by long prayers and mortifications.’ Oh, how good it is to live under obedience, to live conscious of the fact that everything I do is pleasing to God!”(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 894)

“I heard the following words in my soul: ‘You will receive a greater reward for your obedience and subjection to your confessor than you will for the practices which you will be carrying out. Know this, my daughter, and act accordingly: anything, no matter how small it may be, that has the seal of obedience to My representative is pleasing to Me and great in My eyes.’(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 933)

My prayer response:

Lord Jesus, thank You for teaching me about obedience to Your representative in the confessional. Help me with Your grace to submit to Your will expressed by Your representative. Please teach me the importance of an obedient spirit to those You place in spiritual authority over me. (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
