‘Divine Mercy In My Soul’
extracts from the
Diary of Saint Faustina
Tell sinners that no-one shall escape My hand;
if they run away from My Merciful Heart, they will fall into My Just Hands.
Tell sinners that I am always waiting for them,
that I listen intently to the beating of their heart..
..when will it beat for Me?
(Diary, entry no.1728)
Pope Francis says we must not be blind to the action of Satan behind the crisis affecting the Church. If he is right, how should we respond? Here are some simple suggestions.
Revealing His Sacred Heart to Saint Margaret Mary in 1673, the Lord complained that He was forgotten by so many; today, things might not be so very different to then.
Our Shepherd, our Holy Father, has asked that we pray to the Holy Spirit, and to the Blessed Virgin, She who is the Mother of the Church. As Catholics, let us respond generously to his call.
In His great providence, the Lord gives us exactly what we need, at precisely the time we need it most. The devotion to Jesus as Divine Mercy is the perfect example of this truth.
God the Eternal Father is not simply ‘merciful’ and He is not just ‘loving’. Rather, He is these attributes in their fullness and their entirety – Our God is mercy, our God is love.
Let us recognise our human frailty and our sinfulness; and then let us immediately approach the Lord with great confidence, knowing that He is waiting to dispense His mercy to us to it’s very fullness.
What an honour to be ordained a Priest. And yet, consider what this really means; Christ came to suffer and die on the Cross for the redemption of all. As it was for the Master, so must it be for the servant.
As we contemplate this holy Feast in our prayers today, let us as the Merciful Lord for the grace to be faithful to what is given to us in Baptism, and what it asks of us in every moment of our life.
So many of the Saints were in awe at every Mass, the culmination of their spiritual life; and yet how often do we sit there and give little thought to what is taking place before us?
For you who read these words of Saint Faustina, apply them to your own situation and needs; what the Lord says to Faustina about Father Sopocko, He says of you, too. TRUST in Him.
When next we are called to bear some kind of suffering, let us unite ourselves to Christ in His Passion and then bear that suffering patiently and silently, knowing that it amasses for souls treasure in Heaven.
How do we respond to trial and tribulation? As something to be borne amidst much complaining and disdain? Or as an opportunity for sanctification and for God’s glory?

I shall be granting many graces to souls;
