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

December 16 ~ Part Six: With a Suffering Soul

Theme:  Conversations with the Merciful Savior


“Soul: ‘One more thing, Lord. What should I do when I am ignored and rejected by people, especially by those on whom I had a right to count in times of greatest need?’

“Jesus: ‘My child, make the resolution never to rely on people. Entrust yourself completely to My will saying, “Not as I want, but according to Your will, O God, let it be done unto me.” These words, spoken from the depths of one’s heart, can raise a soul to the summit of sanctity in a short time. In such a soul I delight. Such a soul gives Me glory. Such a soul fills heaven with the fragrance of her virtue. But understand that the strength by which you bear suffering comes from frequent Communions. So approach this fountain of mercy often, to draw with the vessel of trust whatever you need.’

“Soul: ‘Thank You, Lord, for Your goodness in remaining with us in this exile as the God of mercy, and blessing us with the radiance of Your compassion and goodness. It is through the light of Your mercy that I have come to understand how much You love me.’” (Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 1487f)

My prayer response:

Lord Jesus, I entrust myself completely to You. “Not my will but Yours be done unto me.” May I draw strength to bear the cross You offer me by drawing strength from Holy Communion, both Sacramental and Spiritual Communions. (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
