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

January 20 ~ Our Duty

Theme:  Beg for Mercy

“December 16, [1936]. I have offered this day for Russia. I have offered all my sufferings and prayers for that poor country. After Holy Communion, Jesus said to me, ‘I cannot suffer that country any longer. Do not tie My hands, My daughter.’ I understood that if it had not been for the prayers of souls that are pleasing to God, that whole nation would have already been reduced to nothingness. Oh, how I suffer for that nation which has banished God from its borders!” (Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 818)

“When once I asked the Lord Jesus how He could tolerate so many sins and crimes and not punish them, the Lord answered me, ‘I have eternity for punishing [these], and so I am prolonging the time of mercy for the sake of [sinners]. But woe to them if they do not recognize this time of My visitation. My daughter, secretary of My mercy, your duty is not only to write about and proclaim My mercy, but also to beg for this grace for them, so that they too may glorify My mercy.’(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 1160)

My prayer response:

Lord Jesus, thank You for instructing Saint Faustina not only to write about Your Mercy toward sinners, but also to beg for mercy for them. May we, too, turn to Your Fatherly Love and beg for Your Divine Mercy upon all who have chosen to wander through life in spiritual darkness. (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
