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

July 26 ~ This Firm Resolution

Theme:  Strive for Sanctity

“I want to become a saint, and I trust that God’s mercy can make a saint even out of such misery as I am, because I am utterly in good will. In spite of all my defeats, I want to go on fighting like a holy soul and to comport myself like a holy soul.”(Diary, 1333)

“O Lord, You who penetrate my whole being and the most secret depths of my soul, You see that I desire You alone and long only for the fulfillment of Your holy will, paying no heed to difficulties or sufferings or humiliations or to what others might think.”(Diary, 1360)

“This firm resolution to become a saint is extremely pleasing to Me. I bless your efforts and will give you opportunities to sanctify yourself. Be watchful that you lose no opportunity that My providence offers you for sanctification.” (Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 1361a)

(To be continued)

My prayer response:

Lord, bless my efforts to become a saint, and may I please You in my every thought, word and deed. May I take advantage of the opportunities You give me to grow in sanctity, and please help me to be watchful for every opportunity. (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
