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

September 1 ~ This Small Imperfection

Theme:  Confession

“It so happened that I fell again into a certain error, in spite of a sincere resolution not to do so – even though the lapse was a minor imperfection and rather involuntary – and at this I felt such acute pain in my soul that I interrupted my work and went to the chapel for a while. Falling at the feet of Jesus, with love and a great deal of pain, I apologized to the Lord, all the more ashamed because of the fact that in my conversation with Him after Holy Communion this very morning I had promised to be faithful to Him. Then I heard these words: ‘If it had not been for this small imperfection, you would not have come to Me.’(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 1293a)

(To be continued)

My prayer response:

Help me, Lord Jesus, to humble myself in Confession and ask for forgiveness, even for imperfections that they, too, may vanish. May I bring even the smallest imperfection to You. (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
