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

May 9 ~ More Merit to One Hour

Theme:  Meditate Upon My Passion

“I received permission for one hour of meditation on the Passion of the Lord Jesus and for a certain humiliation. But I was a little dissatisfied at not receiving permission for everything I had asked. When we returned home, I dropped into the chapel for a moment, and then I heard this voice in my soul: ‘There is more merit to one hour of meditation on My sorrowful Passion than there is to a whole year of flagellation that draws blood; the contemplation of My painful wounds is of great profit to you, and it brings Me great joy.’(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 369a)

[Then Jesus went on to admonish Saint Faustina very kindly] –

“I am surprised that you still have not completely renounced your self-will, but I rejoice exceedingly that this change will be accomplished during the retreat.” (Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 369b)

My prayer response:

Lord Jesus, may I grow in humility and surrender to Your Divine will by meditating on Your Passion. Please, may Your will be done and not mine! (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
