Trust in the mercy of God…this gets us to the heart of the message of Divine Mercy!
God wants us to know that the graces of His mercy are dependent upon our trust. The more we trust in Jesus, the more we will receive.
“When a soul approaches Me with trust, I fill it with such an abundance of graces, that it cannot contain them…but radiates them to other souls!” (Diary 1074)
How to live out the message of Divine Mercy? Remember your “A-B-C’s”
A-Ask for Mercy “Souls that make an appeal to My mercy delight me.”
B- Be Merciful Mercy has two movements….heart and arms.
C- Completely Trust
Pope Saint John Paul II said, “Look at the image and hear what Faustina heard, ‘Fear nothing, I am with you always’ and if you respond with “Jesus I trust in you” you will find comfort in all your anxieties and fears.
”There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.” 1 John 4:18b
Lord Jesus Christ,
You have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father,
and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him.
Show us your face and we will be saved.
Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being enslaved by money;
the adulteress and Magdalene from seeking happiness only in created things;
made Peter weep after his betrayal,
and assured Paradise to the repentant thief.
Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us, the words that you spoke to the Samaritan woman:
“If you knew the gift of God!”
You are the visible face of the invisible Father,
of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy:
let the Church be your visible face in the world, its Lord risen and glorified.
You willed that your ministers would also be clothed in weakness
in order that they may feel compassion for those in ignorance and error:
let everyone who approaches them feel sought after, loved, and forgiven by God.
Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with its anointing,
so that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord,
and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor,
proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed, and restore sight to the blind.
We ask this through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Mercy,
you who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.
