Accept my merciful love

| | Comments (0)


"My Heart is moved to pity
for those whom you recommend to my merciful love.
There is no limit to my merciful kindness.
Souls that doubt my mercy
or fear me as a severe judge is feared
grieve my most loving Heart.
What I want from souls is their confidence in me
and their trust in my merciful goodness.

Accept my merciful love,
accept it for those who refuse to accept it,
for those who turn away from me
to go in search of false comforts
and of deceptive teachers.

Too many priests have lost confidence in my mercy,
and for this reason they are unable to inspire confidence in my mercy
in the souls entrusted to them.
One cannot speak convincingly of my Divine Mercy
without having first experienced it.

I wait for my priests in the Sacrament of my Love.
Let them all approach me to experience my mercy.
Then will I make them channels and heralds of my mercy
in a world that needs the Divine Mercy more than anything else."

From In Sinu Iesu, The Journal of a Priest
