Diary of St. Faustina....on Gods unfathomable Mercy that we will never understand

Jesus to St. Faustina...

"My daughter, speak to priests about this inconceivable mercy of Mine. The flames of mercy are burning Me-clamoring to be spent; I want to keep pouring them out upon souls; souls just don't want to believe in My goodness." (Diary, 177)

"My love and mercy knows no bounds." (Diary, 718)

"Tell aching mankind to snuggle close to My merciful Heart, and I will fill it -with peace.

Reflection:  Sometimes we just cannot believe Gods mercy for us, can He truly forgive us for what we have done, the answer is Yes.  We will never understand Gods mercy.  Look around you - the world is still moving and exisiting even with all its sins....that in itself is Gods Mercy when we wake up to another day.  So as God is merciful to us, we ask the Lord to help us to be merciful to others.  The world will never understand Gods mercy, we can see this every day in the newspapers and how people are so easily exposed and condemned.  But this is not Gods way.  We are called as Christians to take on the mind of Christ and let His Words guide our thoughts, His actions guide our actions.  We must leave all judgement to God who never turns away from a contrite soul.
