Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska: Diary: Divine Mercy in My Soul
I perhaps leafed through it a bit, but though I had good intentions, I have never actually read it. Oh, I have read many bits and pieces of her diary online and know many of the important parts, and once I did try to read the whole diary online but found it too daunting, so I thought a paper copy would be easier.
A couple months ago I ran across the book again, buried with some other books from the conferences and put it on the headboard. And there it sat. So now, for some reason, it had my attention.
Just for fun, I decided to open it and read whatever page it opened to, you know, like how we do with the Bible sometimes to try to get some insight. Well, I opened the book and this is what I read: - "Today the Lord's gaze shot through me suddenly, like lightning.
At once, I came to know the tiniest specks in my soul, and knowing the depths of my misery, I fell to my knees and begged the Lord's pardon, and with great trust I immersed myself in His infinite mercy.
Such knowledge does not depress me nor keep me away from the Lord, but rather it arouses in my soul greater love and boundless trust.
The repentance of my heart is linked to love. These extraordinary flashes from the Lord educate my soul. O sweet rays of God, enlighten me to the most secret depth, for I want to arrive at the greatest possible purity of heart and soul.
Her biography submitted to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints quoted some of these conversations with Jesus regarding the Divine Mercy devotion. The Roman Catholic Church canonized Faustina as a saint on 30 April ,considering her a virgin and mystic.
A diary of about printed pages! The book reflects her thoughts, prayers and her reported visions and conversations with Jesus on Divine Mercy.
It records the last four years of her life. The Lord endowed Sister Faustina with tremendous graces: the gift of contemplation, a deep knowledge of the mystery of the mercy of God, visions, revelations, the hidden stigmata, the gifts of prophecy and of reading human souls, and also the rare gift of mystical espousal. I desire that this image be venerated, first in your chapel, and then throughout the world.
I promise that the soul that will venerate this image will not perish. Three years later, after her assignment to Vilnius, the first artistic rendering of the image was performed under her direction. Meeting Fr. She remained in Vilnius for about three years until March The convent in Vilnius had only 18 sisters at the time and consisted of a few scattered small houses rather than a large building.
Faustina passed the required tests and was declared of sound mind.There are grand potagers like Villandry and La Prieure D'Orsan and allotments and back gardens spotted on the way. We beg this of You by that most wondrous love for the heavenly Father with which Your Heart burns so fiercely.
I think I should study this paragraph and put it in my heart, so I can remember it when it happens to me and quote it to others when they need to understand what they are feeling. Diary is truly a book that inspires people to turn with trust to Jesus and guides the reader through an intimate journey of prayer and devotion that ultimately leads to God's mercy.
Thus may they never fail in love or lose the treasure of the holy faith, but rather, with all the hosts of Angels and Saints, may they glorify your boundless mercy for endless ages. These souls will shine with a special brightness in the next life.
