Mercy Minutes (from Saint Faustina’s Diary)

June 14 ~ A Martyrdom Beyond Description

Theme:  Suffering

“I will enclose myself in the chalice of Jesus so that I may comfort Him continually. I will do everything within my power to save souls, and I will do it through prayer and suffering.” (Mercy Minutes/Diary, 735)

“O my Jesus, I understand well that, just as illness is measured with a thermometer, and a high fever tells us of the seriousness of the illness, so also, in the spiritual life, suffering is the thermometer which measures the love of God in a soul.” (Mercy Minutes/Diary, 774)

“I desire only God himself, and yet I must live. This is a martyrdom beyond description. God imparts Himself to the soul in a loving way and draws it into the infinite depths of His divinity, but at the same time He leaves it here on earth for the sole purpose that it might suffer and die of longing for Him.” (Mercy Minutes/Diary, 856)
