In Your inexhaustible mercy,
murderers become martyrs,
and the lukewarm learn to pray;
Even souls as dark as night can be made as bright as day!
Through Your immeasurable compassion,
criminals become Christians,
and the empty find themselves full;
Even souls as red as blood can be made as white as wool!
By Your incomprehensible goodness,
war-mongers become peace-makers,
and the downcast begin to glow;
Even souls as dirty as mud can be made as pure as snow!
From Your ineffable tenderness,
foes become friends,
and the lost are returned Home;
Even souls as bitter as herbs can be made as sweet as honeycomb!
Because of Your infinite love,
sinners become saints,
and the blind regain their sight;
Even souls falling into hell’s deepest abyss can be raised to Heaven’s highest height!
Indeed, nothing is impossible for He Who made sun, sky, and sea…
And Who earnestly desires the perfection souls like you and me!
All it takes on our part…
Is an open, loving, humble heart!
For the more in His merciful love we trust…
The greater is His generosity toward us!
And the more in His loving mercy we believe…
The more amazing grace our souls will thus receive!
Alleluia! What a wondrous joy! What a great relief!
Lord Jesus Christ, I believe! Please, help my unbelief!
In Your All-Powerful Divine Mercy,
Your Sinner, Servant, Soldier, Son…
Your Beloved One
“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
“Most dear to Me is the souls that strongly believes in My goodness and has complete trust in Me. I head My confidence upon it and give it all it asks.”
“The greatest sinners would achieve great sanctity, if only they
would trust in My mercy.”
-Saint Faustina in her Diary, Divine Mercy in My Soul (205, 1784)
PS- Today’s Image is of our Merciful Lord was how Jesus revealed Himself to Saint Faustina as portrayed in the Divine Mercy Image.
Speaking of which, don’t forget!
This Sunday, April 8th is Divine Mercy Sunday!
Try to go to mass and confession! For in Jesus’ words (Diary, 699):
“I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment.”
