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

December 25 ~ True Greatness

Theme:  Humble Simplicity

“In the evening, I just about got into bed, and I fell asleep immediately. Though I fell asleep quickly, I was awakened even more quickly. A little child came and woke me up. The child seemed about a year old, and I was surprised it could speak so well, as children of that age either do not speak or speak very indistinctly. The child was beautiful beyond words and resembled the Child Jesus, and he said to me, ‘Look at the sky.’ And when I looked at the sky I saw the stars and the moon shining. Then the child asked me, ‘Do you see this moon and these stars?’

“When I said yes, he spoke these words to me, ‘These stars are the souls of faithful Christians, and the moon is the souls of religious. Do you see how great the difference is between the light of the moon and the light of the stars? Such is the difference in heaven between the soul of a religious and the soul of a faithful Christian,’ And he went on to say, ‘True greatness is in loving God and in humility.’(Mercy Minutes with Jesus/Diary, 424)

My prayer response:

Lord Jesus, may I learn that true greatness is in loving You and in the virtue of humility. May I please learn to always come to You as a child. (Mercy Minutes with Jesus)
