“It is mercy I desire, and not sacrifice.” – Responsorial psalm today, adapted from Hosea 6:6
The Lord doesn’t want our holocaust sacrifices. He wants us to sacrifice us!
How do we do that?
“I demand from you deeds of mercy, which are to arise out of love for Me. You are to show mercy to your neighbors always and everywhere. You must not shrink from this or try to excuse or absolve yourself from it.
“I am giving you three ways of exercising mercy toward your neighbor: the first – by deed, the second – by word, the third – by prayer. In these three degrees is contained the fullness of mercy, and it is an unquestionable proof of love for Me. By this means a soul glorifies and pays reverence to My mercy.” – Jesus to Saint Faustina, (Diary of Saint Faustina, entry 742 – partial)
Simple. Straightforward. Truth.
Thanks for taking some of your precious time today to read and listen to my thoughts.
