Continuing with the Divine Mercy

Dear Friends ~

Being that today is Good Friday, I thought I would continue on with my search into the Divine Mercy.

I started a novena to the Divine Mercy today –

Here is the link if you are interested

I hope you will join me and saying this amazing novena.

I also receive daily inspiration from the Divine Mercy Daily –

I will be reading these little meditations every day, and with that I am hoping to help you and me understand all about Saint Faustina.  It is a daily reflection from the diary of St Faustina.

 

Here is one quote from St Faustina  ~  It is one I sometimes struggle with ~

I hope I can make these readings enjoyable for you.

Have a wonderful Easter.

Looking into the Divine Mercy

Good Morning my dear friends ~

It has been long time coming that I talk with you about the Divine Mercy.  I am learning along with you.  I have been introduced to Saint Faustina many times over the years and have decided to take a longer look into her diary –

DIVINE MERCY 1 DIVINE MERCY

The Diary chronicles the message that Jesus, the Divine Mercy, gave to the world through this humble nun. It reminds us to trust in His forgiveness — and as Christ is merciful, so, too, are we instructed to be merciful to others. This message exemplifies God’s love toward mankind and to this day remains a source of hope and renewal. Keep the Diary next to your Bible for constant insight and inspiration for your spiritual growth!

I would love to share with you a few lines from her diary every week.  This is the perfect time to reflect on our lives.  During the rest of the lenten season I would love  you to follow along with me as we see why Jesus pick this wonderful nun to send His message to the world.

Here is the first of the Diary ~

Saint Maria Faustina was born Helena Kowalska in a small village west of Lodz, Poland. When she was almost twenty, she entered the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy, whose members devote themselves to the care and education of troubled young women. In the 1930’s, Sister Faustina received from the Lord a message of mercy that she was told to spread throughout the world. She was asked to become the apostle and secretary of God’s mercy, a model of how to be merciful to others, and an instrument for reemphasizing God’s plan of mercy for the world. She wrote and suffered in secret, with only her spiritual director and some of her superiors aware that anything special was taking place in her life. After her death from tuberculosis in 1938, even her closest associates were amazed as they began to discover what great sufferings and deep mystical experiences had been given to this Sister of theirs. The message of mercy that Sister Faustina received is now being spread throughout the world; her diary, Divine Mercy in My Soul, has become the handbook for devotion to the Divine Mercy.

Thank you for following along with me as I continue to learn more about the wonderful Saint.

Have a wonderful day.

Much love,

Rose
