Mercy Minutes (from Saint Faustina’s Diary)

June 21 ~ Thank You for the Cup of Suffering

Theme:  Suffering

“Thank you in advance, O Lord, for everything Your goodness will send me. Thank You for the cup of suffering from which I shall daily drink. Do not diminish its bitterness, O Lord, but strengthen my lips that, while drinking of this bitterness, they may know how to smile for love of You, my Master.” (Mercy Minutes/Diary, 1449)

“Jesus, do not leave me alone in suffering. You know, Lord, how weak I am. I am an abyss of wretchedness, I am nothingness itself; so what will be so strange if You leave me alone and I fall? I am an infant, Lord, so I cannot get along by myself.” (Mercy Minutes/Diary, 1489a)

“Do not lessen any of my sufferings, only give me strength to bear them. Do with me as You please, Lord, only give me the grace to be able to love You in every event and circumstance. Lord, do not lesson my cup of bitterness, only give me strength that I may be able to drink it all.” (Diary, 1489b)
