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

December 20 ~ Part One: With a Perfect Soul

Theme:  Conversations with the Merciful Savior

“Soul: ‘My Lord and Master, I desire to converse with You.’

“Jesus: ‘Speak, My beloved child, for I am always listening. I wait for you. What do you desire to say?’

“Soul: ‘Lord, first let me pour out my heart at Your feet in a fragrant anointing of gratitude for the many blessings which You lavish upon me; even if I wanted to, I could not count them. I only recall that there has never been a moment in my life in which I have not experienced Your protection and goodness.’

“Jesus: ‘Your words please Me, and your thanksgiving opens up new treasures of graces. But, My child, we should talk in more detail about the things that lie in your heart. Let us talk confidentially and frankly, as two hearts that love one another do.’

“Soul: ‘O my merciful Lord, there are secrets in my heart which no one knows or will ever know except You because, even if I wanted to reveal them, no one would understand me. Your minister knows some because I confess to him, but he knows only the bit of these mysteries that I am capable of revealing; the rest remains between us for eternity, O my Lord! You have covered me with the cloak of Your mercy, pardoning my sins.

[Soul con’t] ‘Not once did You refuse Your pardon; You always had pity on me, giving me a new life of grace. To prevent doubts, You have entrusted me to the loving care of Your Church, that tender mother, who in Your name assures me of the truths of faith and watches lest I wander. Especially in the tribunal of Your mercy [Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession)] does my soul meet an ocean of favors…’” (Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 1489a)

My prayer response:

My Lord Jesus, I want to love You more perfectly. I want to be faithful to Your will. I want to desire and long for You. I want to live the exhortation of Saint Paul, “Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
