Divine Mercy 2016

JESUS I TRUST IN YOU

Today is Divine Mercy Sunday. What a beautiful and wonderful gift this special day is from our God. Saint Faustina in her diary related that God revealed that this gift of mercy came from the most inner depths of the merciful love of God. No matter who you are, no matter what you may have done , no matter what you may feel about yourself, no matter what sins you may have committed know that God loves you and that his mercy awaits for you. God's merciful love is greater than any of your sins. 

 

THE PROMISE OF THE GRACE OF MERCY FOR THE DYING

“It pleases Me to grant everything souls ask of Me by saying the chaplet. When hardened sinners say it, I will fill their souls with peace, and the hour of their death will be a happy one. Write this for the benefit of distressed souls; when a soul sees and realizes the gravity of its sins, when the whole abyss of the misery into which it immersed itself is displayed before its eyes, let it not despair, but with trust let it throw itself into the arms of My mercy, as a child into the arms of its beloved mother (...). Tell them no soul that has called upon My mercy has been disappointed or brought to shame. I delight particularly in a soul that has placed its trust in My goodness. Write that when they say this chaplet in the presence of the dying, I will stand between My Father and the dying person, not as the just Judge but as the merciful Saviour” (Diary, 1541).
