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

July 30 ~ You are That Saint

Theme:  Strive for Sanctity

“First Friday. When I took the Messenger of the Sacred Heart into my hand and read the account of the canonization of Saint Andrew Bobola, my soul was instantly filled with a great longing that our Congregation, too, might have a saint, and I wept like a child that there was no saint in our midst. And I said to the Lord, ‘I know your generosity, and yet it seems to me that You are less generous toward us.’ And I began again to weep like a little child.

“And the Lord Jesus said to me, ‘Don’t cry. You are that saint.’ Then the light of God inundated my soul, and I was given to know how much I was to suffer, and I said to the Lord, ‘How will that come about? You have been speaking to me about another congregation.’ and the Lord answered, ‘It is not for you to know how this will come about. Your duty is to be faithful to My grace and to do always what is within your power and what obedience allows you to do…’(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 1650)

My prayer response:

Thank you, Saint Faustina, for evoking the word of the Lord, “You are that saint.” Thank you, Saint Faustina, for your holy life and your Diary. (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
