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

May 17 ~ A Painful Echo in His Sacred Heart

Theme:  Meditate Upon My Passion

“April 10, 1938. Palm Sunday. I attended Holy Mass, but did not have the strength to go and get the palm. I felt so weak that I barely made it till the end of Mass. During Mass, Jesus gave me to know the pain of His soul, and I could clearly feel how the hymns of Hosanna reverberated as a painful echo in His Sacred Heart.

“My soul, too, was inundated by a sea of bitterness, and each Hosanna pierced my own heart to its depths. My whole soul was drawn close to Jesus. I heard Jesus’ voice: ‘My daughter, your compassion for Me refreshes Me. By meditating on My Passion, your soul acquires a distinct beauty.’(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 1657)

My prayer response:

Lord Jesus, may my meditating upon Your Passion refresh You and call down Your great Mercy upon a world that “so needs to understand and accept Divine Mercy” (part of Pope St. John Paul II’s posthumous Divine Mercy Sunday message, April 3, 2005). (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
