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

August 9 ~ Like Jesus in Suffering and Humility

Theme:  Graces of Retreats

[October 11, 1933, after a three-hour struggle in adoration and prayer, Jesus, in His Passion, appeared to Saint Faustina]

“I saw Him just had He had appeared to me in that instant after my perpetual vows, when I was likewise making a Holy Hour. Jesus was suddenly standing before me, stripped of His clothes, His body completely covered with wounds, His eyes flooded with tears and blood, His face disfigured and covered with spittle. The Lord then said to me, ‘The bride must resemble her Betrothed.’ I understood these words to their very depth. There is no room for doubt here. My likeness to Jesus must be through suffering and humility.

‘See what love of human souls has done to Me. My daughter, in your heart I find everything that so great a number of souls refuses Me. Your heart is My repose. I often wait with great graces until towards the end of prayer.’(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 268)

My prayer response:

Lord Jesus, bless those who struggle with the gift of perseverance in their prayers. May our hearts be a repose for Your agony over those who refuse You. May we be like You through personal suffering and humility. (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
