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

October 24 ~ Not Living for Ourselves

Theme:  Suffering for Souls

“When I fell sick [probably the beginning of consumption] after my first vows and when, despite the kind and solicitous care of my Superiors and the efforts of the doctor, I felt neither better nor worse, remarks began to reach my ears which inferred that I was making believe. With that, my suffering was doubled, and this lasted for quite a long time.

“One day I complained to Jesus that I was being a burden to the sisters. Jesus answered me, ‘You are not living for yourself but for souls, and other souls will profit from your sufferings. Your prolonged suffering will give them the light and strength to accept My will.’(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 67)

My prayer response:

Lord Jesus, help me and souls that are suffering with Your Light and strength to accept Your will. Teach us, Lord, the value and profit of suffering for souls. Please remind us that we are not living for ourselves. (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
