Mercy Minutes (from Saint Faustina’s Diary)

May 31 ~ Cry Out to the Whole World

Theme:  Love

“I would like to cry out to the whole world, ‘Love God, because He is good and great is His mercy!’” (Mercy Minutes/Diary, 1372b)

[Please note: Below, Saint Faustina writes about breaking a wafer – it is a Christmas wafer (oplatek), normally rectangular in shape, which is one of the most beautiful and most revered Polish customs. The “breaking of the oplatek” with family and friends is practiced not only by native Poles in Poland, but by people all over the world whose ancestors came from Poland. Also note that this wafer is NOT the Eucharist.]

Christmas Eve [1937]…

“Before supper, I went into the chapel for a moment to break the wafer spiritually with those beloved persons, so dear to my heart, though far away. First, I steeped myself in profound prayer and asked the Lord for graces for them all as a group and then for each one individually. Jesus gave me to know how much this pleased Him, and my soul was filled with even greater joy to see that God loves in a special way those whom we love.” (Mercy Minutes/Diary, 1438)
