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

November 5 ~ Victim Souls for Priests

Theme:  Suffering for Souls

“I could not recollect myself during prayer, and various things would take hold of my mind. When, tired out, I entered the chapel, a strange pain seized my soul, and I began to weep softly. Then I heard in my soul a voice saying, ‘My daughter, why are you weeping? After all, you yourself offered to undertake these sufferings. Know that what you have taken upon yourself for that soul is only a small portion. He [Father Sopocko] is suffering much more.’

“And I asked the Lord, ‘Why are you treating him like that?’ The Lord answered me that it was for the triple crown meant for him: that of virginity, the priesthood and martyrdom…Thus, all sufferings are nothing in comparison with what awaits us in heaven.” (Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 596)

“This morning, when someone hurt my feelings, I tried, in that suffering, to unite my will to the will of God, and I praised God by my silence. In the afternoon, I went for a five-minute adoration, when suddenly I saw the crucifix I have on my breast come alive. Jesus said to me, ‘My daughter, suffering will be a sign to you that I am with you.’ My soul was greatly moved by these words.” (Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 669)

My prayer response:

Lord Jesus, as Saint Faustina took on the sufferings of Father Michael Sopocko, her spiritual director and confessor, please accept the sufferings of victim souls offered for priests. And remind me, Lord, to offer my own sufferings for priests, Your consecrated sons. (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
