‘Divine Mercy In My Soul’
extracts from the Diary of Saint Faustina
“To comfort you, let Me tell you that there are souls living in the world who love Me dearly. I dwell in their hearts with delight. But they are few.. their number is very small. They are a defense for the world before the Justice of the Heavenly Father and a means of obtaining mercy for the world. The love and sacrifice of these souls sustain the world in existence.”
(Diary, entry no.367)
One of the joys of a day such as this, is that we are reminded of the community aspect of the parish – the little Church in our particular corner of the world, and of the people who make it what it is.
Today the Church celebrates the feast of the Most Holy Trinity, this foundation-stone of our Faith, the great Mystery which is concerned with God Himself, in His nature and His three divine Persons.
O most loving Jesus, deign to let me pour forth my gratitude before Thee, for the grace Thou hast bestowed upon me in giving me to Thy holy Mother. (St Louis Marie de Montfort)
The Church dedicates the month of June to devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus – a devotion which He Himself asked for, and one which the Church has wholeheartedly embraced.
“Come to Me, all you who labour and are burdened, and I will give you rest” says the Lord. “Learn from Me, for I am meek and humble of heart, and you will find rest for yourselves.”
These words of the Merciful Jesus to Saint Faustina are nothing less than a masterclass on the power of prayer. The Lord makes it clear in what that power consists – it is the power to save souls.

The Letters of Saint Faustina
The private letters of Saint Faustina, written to her family, her Sisters and Superiors in religion, and to her beloved Confessors. These letters provide an insight into her interior spirituality and those matters closest to her heart.
Perhaps today, in whatever matters we might be wrestling with in order to reach a decision, we may do similarly, and leave the way open for the Lord to enlighten and guide us, and to make His will known to us.
Let us thank the Lord for commissioning His servant, St Faustina, to have this Image painted, and for the endeavours of His servant, Blessed Father Sopocko, who arranged the painting.
To be saintly, our love must be truly heroic – it is this which leads to true sanctity. We must try to achieve this, and be certain that we have loved as much as we are capable of loving.
