Trust in the Divine Mercy

PhariseeTaxCollector125Our Merciful Saviour, Jesus Christ, came into the world to establish His Kingdom filled with Mercy, Compassion, Joy, Justice, Peace and Love, the Kingdom of Paradise. To deepen our faith and foster holiness of life among us, He used parables to make known to us the mysteries of God’s Kingdom.

To be in control of our lives is something that we all desire. Indeed, we all spend time planning for the future and trying to ensure that we will have an enjoyable, secure and prosperous life. When we are not in control of a given situation, we tend to become anxious and worried.

When we pray for mercy what exactly are we praying for? This may seem like a strange question but it is possibly one of the most important questions being asked and argued about in the Church at this time. Does mercy change us or allow us to stay as we are?

Image of the Wedding Feast at Cana In her Diary, St. Faustina recorded the details of a vision she had of Our Blessed Lady and the Child Jesus at the Shrine of Ostra Brama in Vilnius, Lithuania on November 15, 1935.

The following are a selection of passages from the Dairy that refer to suffering. The word 'suffering' appears over 450 times in the Diary of St. Faustina and undoubtedly St. Faustina had her fair share of suffering during her earthly life.

Confession God Never TiresConfession - God Never Tires  by Fr. John Harris

Same Old Sins...Again?

Do you get tired of asking for mercy? How often have you struggled with some sin in your life and you feel like a hypocrite going back to confession, time and time again with the same sin, asking for mercy?

God is with us when we are suffering As a priest, I’ve had to go into many different family situations. I’ve visited hospitals, morgues, and the homes of broken families. I’ve spoken with people who were dying and afraid, comforted parents holding their dead child in their arms, and sat with wives who discovered their husbands were cheating.

Let Jesus Lead YouThere is a story in the memory of the Church which I believe can help us in our understanding of the crisis facing the Church today and the challenges facing us all at this moment. 

Advent - The Time for our Spiritual AwakeningAdvent is the time of a call from God to wake up because man sometimes falls asleep during his life. A sleep, unlike natural sleep, he may never wake up from but continues to sleep for evermore. 

The Role of the Divine Mercy Devotion in the Future of the Catholic ChurchAn elderly lady came to me recently and said she was “tired of being a Catholic”. She was tired of fighting with her children and grandchildren for not attending Sunday Mass or not practicing their religion. 

God's Mercy Transforms UsSt. John’s Gospel describes the moment as Jesus was walking by the River Jordan and John the Baptist identified Him as the “Lamb of God”. 

Insight into God's Love by Fr. Igor One of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him. Jesus accepted and went to his home that evening. A woman from the town, who had lived a very sinful life, learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she went there with a jar of perfume.

Conversion of Your SpiritIn life, each of us is engaged in a personal journey to save our soul, but it cannot be just about ourselves, it has also to be with our fellow man. 

Confession is about the FutureIt is often said that we Catholics are guilt-ridden. It is said that the Church is obsessed with sex and most of this criticism is particularly focused on the Sacrament of Confession. 

Christ in our lifeAn extract from a letter by Fr. Sopocko to the Sisters of Merciful Jesus during World War II. "I have spent a second week in isolation, where I have been contemplating and adoring Divine Mercy in action."

Living Mercy DailyThe Pope reminded us that the very essence of the Good News is its message of hope and real optimism. He wrote “Optimism is the fruit of Christian hope and the result of its action on the Christian soul”.

Bread and Wine Today in Ireland many people whom I knew as solid Catholics most of my life, that is, in their own quite reserved way, they went to Mass every Sunday, said their prayers at night and supported the Church.
