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

November 28 ~ Part One: Convents and Churches

Theme:  End Times and Eternal Life

“Towards the end of the Way of the Cross which I was making, the Lord Jesus began to complain about the souls of religious and priests, about the lack of love in chosen souls. ‘I will allow convents and churches to be destroyed.’ I answered, ‘Jesus, but there are so many souls praising You in convents.’

“The Lord answered, ‘That praise wounds My Heart, because love has been banished from convents. Souls without love and without devotion, souls full of egoism and self-love, souls full of pride and arrogance, souls full of deceit and hypocrisy, lukewarm souls who have just enough warmth to keep them alive:

‘My Heart cannot bear this. All the graces that I pour out upon them flow off them as off the face of a rock. I cannot stand them, because they are neither good or bad. I called convents into being to sanctify the world through them. It is from them that a powerful flame of love and sacrifice should burst forth. And if they do not repent and become enkindled by their first love, I will deliver them over to the fate of this world…’(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 1702a)

(To be continued)

My prayer response:

Lord Jesus, in our day, we see convents, rectories and churches closed and destroyed. Help us to be enkindled by our first love – our love for You! (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)

Please note:  “The one who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks in the midst of the seven gold lampstands says this: ‘I know your works, your labor, and your endurance, and that you cannot tolerate the wicked; you have tested those who call themselves apostles but are not, and discovered that they are impostorsYet I hold this against you: you have lost the love you had at first.(Revelation 2:1b-2, 4)
