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

November 9 ~ Part Four: A Whole-Burnt Offering

Theme:  Suffering for Souls

(Continued, Part Four of Four)

“February 7, [1937]. Today, the Lord said to me:

‘…But there is time, so that I the Lord will fulfill all your wishes. I delight in you as in a living host; let nothing terrify you; I am with you.’(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 923d)

“I heard these words in my soul: ‘My daughter, too great are your demands.’ ‘Jesus, You know that for You it is easier to grant much rather than a little.’ ‘That is so; it is less difficult for Me to grant a soul much rather than a little, but every conversion of a sinful soul demands sacrifice…My dear daughter, I comply with your request.’”(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 961)

My prayer response:

Lord Jesus, may I learn to pray like Saint Faustina who made demands of You that are “too great” (Diary, 961). Saint Faustina asked that You grant the grace of conversion to as many souls as the number of stitches that she made on a particular day with the crochet hook. She said that it is all she could do under holy obedience in her sickness – simple stitching. And You, Lord, a Most Merciful Savior, complied with her request! (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
