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

October 25 ~ Bless Souls Who Suffer

Theme:  Suffering for Souls

“Suddenly, when I had consented to the sacrifice with all my heart and all my will, God’s presence pervaded me. My soul became immersed in God and was inundated with such happiness that I cannot put in writing even the smallest part of it. I felt that His Majesty was enveloping me. I was extraordinarily fused with God. I saw that God was well pleased with me and, reciprocally, my spirit drowned itself in Him. Aware of this union with God, I felt I was especially loved and, in turn, I loved with all my soul.

“A great mystery took place during that adoration, a mystery between the Lord and myself. It seemed to me that I would die of love [at the sight of] His glance. I spoke much with the Lord without uttering a single word. And the Lord said to me, ‘You are the delight of My Heart; from today on, everyone of your acts, even the very smallest, will be a delight to My eyes, whatever you do.’(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 137)

“In the evening, when I entered the small chapel, I heard these words in my soul: ‘My daughter, consider these words: “And being in agony, he prayed more earnestly.”’ When I started to think about them more deeply, much light streamed into my soul. I learned how much we need perseverance in prayer and that our salvation often depends on such difficult prayer.” (Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 157)

My prayer response:

Lord Jesus, when Saint Faustina consented with all her heart to the sacrifice You asked of her, You blessed her (see entry above, Diary, 137). At that moment, she felt “extraordinarily fused with God.” Jesus, please help all who are suffering to accept Your will and bless them with Your Loving Presence! (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
