Mercy Minutes (from Saint Faustina’s Diary)

July 5 ~ My Heart Bursts with Longing for You

Theme:  Desire for the Lord

“My heart, longing for God, feels the whole misery of exile. I keep going forward bravely – though my feet become wounded – to my homeland and, on the way, I nourish myself on the will of God. It is my food.” (Mercy Minutes/Diary, 886)

“My Jesus, in spite of everything, I desire very much to unite myself to You. Jesus, if this be possible, take me to Yourself, for it seems to me that my heart will burst of longing for You!” (Mercy Minutes/Diary, 918a)

“…O will of my Lord, be my delight and the rapture of my soul. Although the earth is so filled with people, I feel all alone, and the earth is a terrible desert to me. O Jesus, Jesus, You know and understand the fervors of my heart; you, O Lord, alone can fill me.” (Diary, 918b)
