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

November 4 ~ Just a Few More Drops

Theme:  Suffering for Souls

“(The first Thursday after Christmas.) I completely forgot it was Thursday and so did not make my adoration. At nine o’clock I went directly to the dormitory with the other sisters. But strangely enough, I could not fall asleep. It seemed to me that I had not yet done something that I was supposed to do. Mentally, I reviewed all my duties, and could not recollect anything. This lasted until ten o’clock. At ten, I saw the Sorrowful Face of Jesus.

“Then Jesus spoke these words to me, ‘I have been waiting to share My suffering with you, for who can understand My suffering better than My spouse?’ I asked pardon of Jesus for my coldness. Ashamed and not daring to look at the Lord Jesus, but with a contrite heart, I asked Him to give me one thorn from His crown. He answered that He would grant me this favor, but not until tomorrow, and immediately the vision disappeared.” (Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 348)

“September 19, 1936. When we left the doctor’s and stepped into the sanatorium chapel for a moment, I heard these words in my soul: ‘My child, just a few more drops in your chalice; it won’t be long now.’ Joy filled my soul; this was the first call from my beloved Spouse and Master. My heart melted, and there was a moment when my soul was immersed in the whole sea of God’s mercy. I felt that my mission was beginning in all its fullness. Death destroys nothing that is good. I pray most of all for the souls that are experiencing inner sufferings.” (Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 694)

My prayer response:

Lord Jesus, help me to understand Your sufferings with my mind and my heart. Help me not to waste the sufferings I have personally – but to offer them to You – because they are precious to You for the salvation of souls. (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
