The Image of Divine Mercy

"I am the Way; I am Truth and Life. No one can come to the Father except through me."  John 14:6

The Divine Mercy Is A Message From God and Is The Heart of The Gospels

Whether or not you accept (1) "The Sacred Heart of Jesus Devotion" (Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque), (2)"The Divine Mercy Devotion" (Saint Maria Faustina Helena Kowalska), or my own (3) "The Divine Mercy Image Private Revelation" is irrelevant. The message is the same and is not optional. Here's why ...

"Divine Mercy is both a message and a devotion. It is not just a devotion. While devotions are optional, The Divine Mercy is a message from God and is the "Heart of the Gospels" and it is therefore not optional. Therefore if you reject The Divine Mercy, you are rejecting the Gospels."
Fr. Chris Alar, MIC (The Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception of The Most Blessed Virgin Mary -
Marian Seminarians, Holy Priests, Apostles of Divine Mercy - National Shrine of The Divine Mercy, Stockbridge, MA)

3: Most numbers carry a symbolic purpose in the Bible.The number 3 appears in the Bible 467 times, fewer than the number seven, but more than most of the other symbolically important numbers.Sometimes three is used as an emphatic semitic triplet  to describe the intensity of something. It’s not just holy. It’s holy, holy, holy. The best example is the Trinity: God is three in one: the Father (1 Corinthians 8:6), the Son (Colossians 2:9), and the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:17).

Stories About Vilnius, Lithuania, The City of Mercy

 

"On the evening of the last day [November 15] of the novena at Ostra Brama, after the singing of the litany, one of the priests exposed the Blessed Sacrament in the monstrance. When he placed it on the altar, I immediately saw the Infant Jesus, stretching out His little arms, first of all toward His Mother, who at that time had taken on a living appearance. When the Mother of God was speaking to me, Jesus stretched out His tiny hands toward the congregation. The Blessed Mother was telling me to accept all that God asked of me like a little child, without questioning; otherwise it would not be pleasing to God. At that moment, the Infant Jesus vanished, and the Mother of God was again lifeless, and Her picture was the same as it had been before. But my soul was filled with great joy and gladness, and I said to the Lord, ‘Do with me as You please; I am ready for everything, but You, O Lord, must not abandon me even for a moment.’” (Diary, 529)

Divine Mercy In My Soul:  Diary by Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska

"Although My greatness is beyond understanding, I commune only with those who are little. I demand of you a childlike spirit." (Diary, 332)

St. Michael The Archangel Worked Behind The Scenes In Spreading The Divine Mercy

Jesus Ordered St. Michael The Archangel To Take Special Care of St. Faustina

St Michael said to St Faustina “Do not fear, the Lord has ordered me to take special care of you,” and then disappeared. (Diary)

The Devil Hates The Divine Mercy Message - We Are All Hated By The Devil

The devil hates us all, especially those who try to spread The Divine Mercy Message to Save Souls. The Devil does not want heaven for himself but he is envious as he does not want it for us either.
"St. Michael The Archangel worked behind the scenes in spreading the devotion to The Divine Mercy. Jesus ordered St. Michael to take special care of St. Faustina and the reason was because she was hated by the devil. The devil hates the Divine Mercy Message. If you do something for God for the salvation of souls, the devil hates it and wants to discourage us so pray to St. Michael the Archangel and St. Faustina."
Fr. Peter Prusakiewicz CSMA video St. Michael The Archangel and St. Faustina attests to this.

The Angels - Messengers From A Loving God

Fr. Piotr Prusakiewicz, CSMA is chief editor of two magazines, "The Angels messengers from a loving God" a quarterly magazine in English on the subject of Angels, Archangels, Knighthood of St Michael the Archangel and Divine Mercy and “Who is Like God” a bi-monthly magazine on Holy Angels printed in the Polish language dedicated solely to the subject of angels.

"I have great reverence for Saint Michael the Archangel; he had no example to follow in doing the will of God, and yet he fulfilled God's will faithfully." (Diary, 667)

The scriptures tell us to rebuke evil … “Be sober and watch: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, goeth about seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:8)

"My Jesus, despite Your graces, I see and feel all my misery. I begin my day with battle and end it with battle. As soon as I conquer one obstacle, ten more appear to take its place. But I am not worried, because I know that this is the time of struggle, not peace." (Diary, 606)

"The Divine Image is present in Every Man
. It shines forth in the communion of persons, in the likeness of the unity of the divine persons among themselves." (CCC, 1702) By virtue of his soul and his spiritual powers of intellect and will, man is endowed with Freedom, an Outstanding Manifestation of the Divine Image." (CCC 1705)

“Once, after receiving Holy Communion, I heard these words: ‘You are Our dwelling place’. At that moment, I felt in my soul the presence of the Holy Trinity, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. I felt that I was the temple of God." (Diary, 451)

What is Sin?

“In its essence, sin is when you take your eye off of the Creator and you turn it to the creature or the created thing.”
– Fr. Chris Alar, MIC

What is Mercy?

"Mercy is having pains in your heart for the pains of another and taking pains to do something about their pains."
- Fr. George Kosicki

What is the Divine Mercy? Is Divine Mercy Optional?

It is both a message and a devotion. It is not just a devotion. While devotions are optional, the Divine Mercy is a message from God and the "heart of the Gospels" and it is therefore not optional. Therefore, if you reject Divine Mercy, you are rejecting the Gospels. - Fr.

"Mercy is the beating heart of the Gospel." - Pope Francis, Misericordiae Vultus, April 11, 2015

"The love of God for men is a merciful love." - Pope Pius XII, Encyclical Haurietis Aquas, on devotion to the Sacred Heart, May 15,1956

"Indeed, mercy is the central nucleus of the Gospel message; it is the very name of God, the Face with which he revealed himself in the Old Covenant and fully in Jesus Christ, the incarnation of creative and redemptive Love."
- Pope Benedict XVI, Regina Caeli message on Divine Mercy Sunday, March 30, 2008

What does Jesus say about Love and Mercy in the Gospels?
What does Jesus say about what we must do to possess Eternal Life?

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

The Parable of the Good Samaritan-Luke 10:25-37

“… Master, what must I do to possess eternal life?

But he said to him: What is written in the law? how readest thou? He answering, said:
 'Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind: and thy neighbour as thyself.' And he said to him: Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. But he willing to justify himself, said to Jesus: And who is my neighbour? And Jesus answering, said: A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, who also stripped him, and having wounded him went away, leaving him half dead.
And it chanced, that a certain priest went down the same way: and seeing him, passed by. In like manner also a Levite, when he was near the place and saw him, passed by. But a certain Samaritan being on his journey, came near him; and seeing him, was moved with compassion. And going up to him, bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine: and setting him upon his own beast, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And the next day he took out two pence, and gave to the host, and said: Take care of him; and whatsoever thou shalt spend over and above, I, at my return, will repay thee.
'Which of these three, in thy opinion, was neighbour to him that fell among the robbers?' But he said: 'He that shewed mercy to him. And Jesus said to him: Go, and do thou in like manner.' - Luke 10:25-37

The Divine Mercy Message Concerning End Times

"As often as you want to make Me happy, speak to the world about My great and unfathomable mercy." (Diary 164)

"Before I come as the Just Judge, I am coming first as the King of Mercy. Before the day of justice arrives, there will be given to people a sign in the heavens of this sort: All light in the heavens will be extinguished, and there will be great darkness over the whole earth. Then the sign of the cross will be seen in the sky, and from the openings where the hands and the feet of the Saviour were nailed will come forth great lights which will light up the earth for a period of time. This will take place shortly before the last day." (Diary 83)

"Mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to My Mercy." (Diary 300)

"You will prepare the world for My final coming." (Diary 429)

"(My daughter) Speak to the world about My mercy; let all mankind recognize My unfathomable mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it will come the day of justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My mercy; let them profit from the Blood and Water which gushed forth for them." (Diary 848)

"Souls perish in spite of My bitter Passion. I am giving them the last hope of salvation; that is the Feast of My Mercy. If they will not adore My mercy, they will perish for all eternity." (Diary 965)

"Secretary of My mercy, write, tell souls about this great mercy of Mine, because the awful day, the day of My justice, is near." (Diary 965)

"Write: before I come as a just Judge, I first open wide the door of My mercy. He who refuses to pass through the door of My mercy must pass through the door of My justice…” (Diary 1146)

"…I am prolonging the time of mercy for the sake of sinners. But woe to them if they do not recognize this time of My visitation. My daughter, secretary of My mercy, your duty is not only to write about and proclaim My mercy, but also to beg for this grace for them, so that they too may glorify My mercy.” (Diary 1160)

"Come to Me, all of you." (Diary 1485)

"In the Old Covenant I sent prophets wielding thunderbolts to My people. Today I am sending you with My mercy to the people of the whole world. I do not want to punish aching mankind, but I desire to heal it, pressing it to My Merciful Heart. I use punishment when they themselves force Me to do so; My hand is reluctant to take hold of the sword of justice. Before the Day of Justice I am sending the Day of Mercy." (Diary 1588)

"I bear a special love for Poland, and if she will be obedient to My will, I will exalt her in might and holiness. From her will come forth the spark that will prepare the world for My final coming." (Diary 1732)

-The Words of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of Mercy, to Saint Maria Faustina Helena Kowalska

 "…you have to speak to the world about His great mercy and prepare the world for the Second Coming of Him Who will come, not as a merciful Savior, but as a just Judge. Oh, how terrible is that day! Determined is the day of justice, the day of divine wrath. The angels tremble before it. Speak to souls about this great mercy while it is still the time for granting mercy." (Diary 635)

-The Words of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Mercy, to St. Faustina Helena Kowalska

Bible Reflections For These Difficult Times

What Does Forgive Mean? How Do You Live Forgiveness Towards Someone?
What Is Required For One To Have Forgiven?

"People don't understand. Forgive does not necessarily mean reconciliation. It does not necessarily mean that you have to become best friends with somebody. I had somebody steal two thousand dollars from me, an employee. I did not have to go out to dinner with him or become their best friend. I forgave them, but you can believe I fired them. You see, Forgiveness simply means, you let go.  You wish them well. You don't have to reconcile, but if you do reconcile now you've elevated yourself up to mercy. Mercy is actually greater than forgiveness." - Fr. Chris Alar, MIC

St. John tells us to be on guard against the enemies of Christ and against the world

"It is not every spirit, my dear people, that you can trust; test them, to see if they come from God, there are many false prophets, now, in the world.You can tell the spirits that come from God by this: every spirit which acknowledges that Jesus the Christ has come in the flesh is from God; but any spirit which will not say this of Jesus is not from God, but is the spirit of Antichrist, whose coming you were warned about. Well, now he is here, in the world.Children, you have already overcome these false prophets, because you are from God and you have in you one who is greater than anyone in this world; as for them, they are of the world, and so they speak the language of the world and the world listens to them. But we are children of God, and those who know God listen to us; those who are not of God refuse to listen to us. This is how we can tell the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood."(1 John 4:4)

What Does the Bible Say About Toxic People and Relationships?

The Dangers of the Last Days

"You may be quite sure that in the last days there are going to be some difficult times. People will be self-centred and grasping; boastful, arrogant and rude; disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, irreligious; heartless and unappeasable; they will be slanderers, profligates, savages and enemies of everything that is good; they will be treacherous and reckless and demented by pride, preferring their own pleasure to God. They will keep up the outward appearance of religion but will have rejected the inner power of it. Have nothing to do with people like that. (2 Timothy 3:1-5)

Jesus, the cause of dissension

"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth: it is not peace I have come to bring, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. A man’s enemies will be those of his own household." (Matthew 10:34-26)

The Parable of the Good Shepherd

"I tell you most solemnly, anyone who does not enter the sheepfold through the gate, but gets in some other way is a thief and a brigand. The one who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the flock; the gatekeeper lets him in, the sheep hear his voice, one by one he calls his own sheep and leads them out. When he has brought out his flock, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow because they know his voice.They never follow a stranger but run away from him: they do not recognise the voice of strangers.’Jesus told them this parable but they failed to understand what he meant by telling it to them. So Jesus spoke to them again: ‘I tell you most solemnly, I am the gate of the sheepfold. All others who have come are thieves and brigands; but the sheep took no notice of them I am the gate. Anyone who enters through me will be safe: he will go freely in and out and be sure of finding pasture.The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd is one who lays down his life for his sheep.The hired man, since he is not the shepherd and the sheep do not belong to him, abandons the sheep and runs away as soon as he sees a wolf coming, and then the wolf attacks and scatters the sheep; this is because he is only a hired man and has no concern for the sheep. I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for my sheep. And there are other sheep I have that are not of this fold, and these I have to lead as well. They too will listen to my voice, and there will be only one flock, and one shepherd. The Father loves me, because I lay down my life in order to take it up again. No one takes it from me; I lay it down of my own free will, and as it is in my power to lay it down, so it is in my power to take it up again; and this is the command I have been given by my Father." (John 10:1-18)

The Cure of the Man Born Blind

As he went along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth.
His disciples asked him, 'Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he should have been born blind?'
'Neither he nor his parents sinned,' Jesus answered, 'he was born blind so that the works of God might be revealed in him.
'As long as day lasts we must carry out the work of the one who sent me; the night will soon be here when no one can work.
As long as I am in the world I am the light of the world.'
Having said this, he spat on the ground, made a paste with the spittle, put this over the eyes of the blind man, and said to him, 'Go and wash in the Pool of Siloam' (the name means 'one who has been sent'). So he went off and washed and came back able to see.
His neighbours and the people who used to see him before (for he was a beggar) said, 'Isn't this the man who used to sit and beg?'
Some said, 'Yes, it is the same one.' Others said, 'No, but he looks just like him.' The man himself said, 'Yes, I am the one.'
So they said to him, 'Then how is it that your eyes were opened?'

He answered, 'The man called Jesus made a paste, daubed my eyes with it and said to me, "Go off and wash at Siloam"; so I went, and when I washed I gained my sight.'
They asked, 'Where is he?' He answered, 'I don't know.'
They brought to the Pharisees the man who had been blind.
It had been a Sabbath day when Jesus made the paste and opened the man's eyes,
so when the Pharisees asked him how he had gained his sight, he said, 'He put a paste on my eyes, and I washed, and I can see.'
Then some of the Pharisees said, 'That man cannot be from God: he does not keep the Sabbath.' Others said, 'How can a sinner produce signs like this?' And there was division among them.
So they spoke to the blind man again, 'What have you to say about him yourself, now that he has opened your eyes?' The man answered, 'He is a prophet.'
However, the Jews would not believe that the man had been blind without first sending for the parents of the man who had gained his sight and asking them, 'Is this man really the son of yours who you say was born blind? If so, how is it that he is now able to see?'
His parents answered, 'We know he is our son and we know he was born blind,
but how he can see, we don't know, nor who opened his eyes. Ask him. He is old enough: let him speak for himself.'
His parents spoke like this out of fear of the Jews, who had already agreed to ban from the synagogue anyone who should acknowledge Jesus as the Christ. This was why his parents said, 'He is old enough; ask him.'
So the Jews sent for the man again and said to him, 'Give glory to God! We are satisfied that this man is a sinner.'
The man answered, 'Whether he is a sinner I don't know; all I know is that I was blind and now I can see.'
They said to him, 'What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?'
He replied, 'I have told you once and you wouldn't listen. Why do you want to hear it all again? Do you want to become his disciples yourselves?'
At this they hurled abuse at him, 'It is you who are his disciple, we are disciples of Moses:
we know that God spoke to Moses, but as for this man, we don't know where he comes from.'
The man replied,
'That is just what is so amazing! You don't know where he comes from and he has opened my eyes!
We know that God doesn't listen to sinners, but God does listen to people who are devout and do his will.
Ever since the world began it is unheard of for anyone to open the eyes of someone born blind;
if this
man were not from God, he wouldn't have been able to do anything.'
They retorted, 'Are you trying to teach us, and you a sinner through and through ever since you were born!' And they ejected him.
Jesus heard they had ejected him, and when he found him he said to him,
'Do you believe in the Son of man?'
'Sir,' the man replied, 'tell me who he is so that I may believe in him.'
Jesus said,
'You have seen him; he is speaking to you.'
The man said, 'Lord, I believe,' and worshipped him.

Jesus said: 'It is for judgement that I have come into this world, so that those without sight may see and those with sight may become blind.''
Hearing this, some Pharisees who were present said to him, 'So we are blind, are we?'
Jesus replied:
If you were blind, you would not be guilty, but since you say, 'We can see,' your guilt remains.'
(John 9)

As St. Paul said: "For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places." (Ephesians 6:12)

“The only way to win with a toxic person, is not to play." - Mark Twain

"Toxic people attach themselves like cinderblocks tied to your ankles, and then invite you in for a swim in their poisoned waters."  - John Mark Green

When Is Anger A Mortal Sin? The Catechism Of The Catholic Church says:

"By recalling the commandment, "You shall not kill," (Matthew 5:21) our Lord asked for peace of heart and denounced murderous anger and hatred as immoral.

Anger is a desire for revenge. "To desire vengeance in order to do evil to someone who should be punished is illicit," but it is praiseworthy to impose restitution "to correct vices and maintain justice."
(
St. Thomas Aquinas, STh II-II, 158, 1 ad 3)

If anger reaches the point of a deliberate desire to kill or seriously wound a neighbor, it is gravely against charity; it is a mortal sin. The Lord says, "Everyone who is angry with his brother shall be liable to judgment." (Matthew 5:22)
(CCC, 2302)

"Deliberate hatred is contrary to charity. Hatred of the neighbour is a sin when one deliberately wishes him evil. Hatred of the neighbor is a grave sin when one deliberately desires him grave harm. "But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven." (CCC, 2303)

What Does The Bible Say About Anger - Righteous Anger versus Sinful Anger?

"Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not give the devil an opportunity." (Ephesians 4:26-27)

"God judges the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day." (Psalms 7:11)

Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way,For His wrath may soon be kindled.
How blessed are all who take refuge in Him! (Psalms 2:12)

Anger isn't necessarily a sin. Jesus became angry, but angry for the right reasons: the things that dishonored God and people taking advantage of or not caring about the needs of others. Consider Jesus' anger in driving the money changers from the temple (Matthew 21:12-13)  (John 2:13-16). Jesus' was clearly angry at the scribes and Pharisees who were being ignorant of God's righteousness and going about to establish their own righteousness, refused to humbly submit themselves into the righteousness of God (Matthew 23:13-39). Jesus expressed his anger at the Pharisees for their lack of compassion for the man with the withered hand (Mark 3:1-6).This is called righteous anger. Anger is sometimes good - if it moves us to redress a wrong or motivates us to fight for the oppressed.

The Cleansing of the Temple

"Jesus then went into the Temple and drove out all those who were selling and buying there; he upset the tables of the money-changers and the seats of the dove-sellers. He said to them, 'According to scripture, my house will be called a house of prayer; but you are turning it into a bandits' den." (Matthew 21:12-13)

"When the time of the Jewish Passover was near Jesus went up to Jerusalem, and in the Temple he found people selling cattle and sheep and doves, and the money changers sitting there. Making a whip out of cord, he drove them all out of the Temple, sheep and cattle as well, scattered the money changers' coins, knocked their tables over and said to the dove sellers, 'Take all this out of here and stop using my Father's house as a market."(John 2:13-16)

The Scribes and Pharisees: Their Hypocrisy and Vanity

 'Alas for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut up the kingdom of Heaven in people's faces, neither going in yourselves nor allowing others to go who want to. 'Alas for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over sea and land to make a single proselyte, and anyone who becomes one you make twice as fit for hell as you are. 'Alas for you, blind guides! You say, "If anyone swears by the Temple, it has no force; but anyone who swears by the gold of the Temple is bound." Fools and blind! For which is of greater value, the gold or the Temple that makes the gold sacred? Again, "If anyone swears by the altar it has no force; but anyone who swears by the offering on the altar, is bound." You blind men! For which is of greater worth, the offering or the altar that makes the offering sacred?  Therefore, someone who swears by the altar is swearing by that and by everything on it. And someone who swears by the Temple is swearing by that and by the One who dwells in it. And someone who swears by heaven is swearing by the throne of God and by the One who is seated there.  'Alas for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You pay your tithe of mint and dill and cummin and have neglected the weightier matters of the Law-justice, mercy, good faith! These you should have practised, those not neglected.  You blind guides, straining out gnats and swallowing camels! 'Alas for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of cup and dish and leave the inside full of extortion and intemperance. Blind Pharisee! Clean the inside of cup and dish first so that it and the outside are both clean.  'Alas for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs that look handsome on the outside, but inside are full of the bones of the dead and every kind of corruption. In just the same way, from the outside you look upright, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. 'Alas for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You build the sepulchres of the prophets and decorate the tombs of the upright, saying, "We would never have joined in shedding the blood of the prophets, had we lived in our ancestors' day." So! Your own evidence tells against you! You are the children of those who murdered the prophets! Very well then, finish off the work that your ancestors began. 'You serpents, brood of vipers, how can you escape being condemned to hell? This is why -- look -- I am sending you prophets and wise men and scribes; some you will slaughter and crucify, some you will scourge in your synagogues and hunt from town to town; and so you will draw down on yourselves the blood of every upright person that has been shed on earth, from the blood of Abel the holy to the blood of Zechariah son of Barachiah whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar.  In truth I tell you, it will all recoil on this generation. 'Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that kill the prophets and stone those who are sent to you! How often have I longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you refused! Look! Your house will be deserted, for, I promise, you shall not see me any more until you are saying: Blessed is he who is coming in the name of the Lord!'"
(Matthew 23:13-39)

Cure of the Man with a Withered Hand

He went again into a synagogue, and there was a man there who had a withered hand. And they were watching him to see if he would cure him on the sabbath day, hoping for something to use against him. He said to the man with the withered hand, ‘Stand up out in the middle!’Then he said to them, ‘Is it against the law on the sabbath day to do good, or to do evil; to save life, or to kill?’ But they said nothing.Then, grieved to find them so obstinate, he looked angrily round at them, and said to the man, ‘Stretch out your hand’. He stretched it out and his hand was better. The Pharisees went out and at once began to plot with the Herodians against him, discussing how to destroy him. (Mark 3:1-6)

What does The Bible say about Life and Death? Life and Death are under God's Control!

"Since his days are measured out, since his tale of months depends on you, since you assign him bounds he cannot pass, "turn your eyes from him, leave him alone, like a hired labourer, to finish his day in peace." (Job 14:5-6)

"Nor is he in need of anything, that he should be served by human hands; on the contrary, it is he who gives everything -- including life and breath -- to everyone. From one single principle he not only created the whole human race so that they could occupy the entire earth, but he decreed the times and limits of their habitation." (Acts17:25-26)

"Your eyes could see my embryo. In your book all my days were inscribed, every one that was fixed is there."
(Psalms 139:16)

"But my trust is in you, Yahweh; I say, 'You are my God,'  every moment of my life is in your hands, rescue me from the clutches of my foes who pursue me;  let your face shine on your servant, save me in your faithful love."
(Psalms 31:14-16)

"Go and say to Hezekiah, "Yahweh, the God of your ancestor David, says this: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears. I shall cure you: in three days' time you will go up to the Temple of Yahweh. I shall add fifteen years to your life." (Isaiah 38:5)

"You have defied the Lord of heaven, you have had the vessels from his Temple brought to you, and you, your noblemen, your wives and the women singing for you have drunk your wine out of them. You have praised gods of gold and silver, of bronze and iron, of wood and stone, which can neither see, hear nor understand; but you have given no glory to the God in whose hands are your breath itself and all your fortunes."
 
(
Daniel 5:23)

"And the King will answer, "In truth I tell you, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did it to Me."(Matthew 25:40)

"About times and dates, brothers, there is no need to write to you, for you are well aware in any case that the Day of the Lord is going to come like a thief in the night." (1 Thessalonians, 5:1-2)

The Sin of Pride - The Increase of Human Wickedness -The Diversity of Languages in the World

This story illustrates increasing human wickedness, shown here in the sinful pride that human beings take in their own achievements apart from God. Secondarily, the story explains the diversity of languages among the peoples of the earth.

Tower of Babel

The whole world had the same language and the same words.
When they were migrating from the east, they came to a valley in the land of Shinar* and settled there.
They said to one another, “Come, let us mold bricks and harden them with fire.” They used bricks for stone, and bitumen for mortar.
Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the sky,* and so make a name for ourselves; otherwise we shall be scattered all over the earth.”
The LORD came down to see the city and the tower that the people had built.
Then the LORD said: If now, while they are one people and all have the same language, they have started to do this, nothing they presume to do will be out of their reach.
Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that no one will understand the speech of another.
So the LORD scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city.
That is why it was called Babel,* because there the LORD confused the speech of all the world. From there the LORD scattered them over all the earth. (Genesis 11:1-9)

"The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want." - Psalms 23:1

The Lord  Is All Knowing and All Powerful -  He Is All Loving, and His Love Is Unconditional and Eternal.

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you came to birth I consecrated you; I appointed you as prophet to the nations." (Jeremiah 1:5)

"Yes, I know what plans I have in mind for you, Yahweh declares, plans for peace, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. When you call to me and come and pray to me, I shall listen to you. When you search for me, you will find me; when you search wholeheartedly for me,  I shall let you find me (Yahweh declares. I shall restore your fortunes and gather you in from all the nations and wherever I have driven you, Yahweh declares. I shall bring you back to the place from which I exiled you)." (Jeremiah 29:11-14)

The Lord is Merciful

"Oh, how ardently I desire that every soul would praise Your mercy. Happy is the soul that calls upon the mercy of the Lord. It will see that the Lord will defend it as His glory, as He said. And who would dare fight against God? All you souls, praise the Lord's mercy by trusting in His mercy all your life and especially at the hour of your death. And fear nothing, dear soul, whoever you are; the greater the sinner, the greater his right to Your mercy, O Lord. O incomprehensible goodness! God is the first to stoop to the sinner. O Jesus, I wish to glorify Your mercy on behalf of thousands of souls. I know very well, O my Jesus, that I am to keep telling souls about Your goodness, about Your incomprehensible mercy." (Diary 598)

"+ Today the Lord said to me, My daughter, My pleasure and delight, nothing will stop Me from granting you graces. Your misery does not hinder My mercy. My daughter, write that the greater the misery of a soul, the greater its right to My mercy; [urge] all souls to trust in the unfathomable abyss of My mercy, because I want to save them all. On the cross, the fountain of My mercy was opened wide by the lance for all souls-no one have I excluded!" (Diary 1182)

"O my Jesus, I implore You by the goodness of Your most sweet Heart, let Your anger diminish and show us Your mercy. May Your wounds be our shield against Your Father's justice. I have come to know You, O God, as the source of mercy that vivifies and nourishes every soul. Oh, how great is the mercy of the Lord; it surpasses all His other qualities! Mercy is the greatest attribute of God; everything that surrounds me speaks to me of this. Mercy is the life of souls; His compassion is inexhaustible. O Lord, look on us and deal with us according to Your countless mercies, according to Your great mercy." (Diary 611)

"Write this: Everything that exists is enclosed in the bowels of My mercy, more deeply than an infant in its mother's womb. How painfully distrust of My goodness wounds Me! Sins of distrust wound Me most painfully." (Diary, 1076)

Jesus: My child, do you fear the God of mercy? My holiness does not prevent Me from being merciful. Behold, for you I have established a throne of mercy on earth-the tabernacle-and from this throne I desire to enter into your heart. I am not surrounded by a retinue or guards. You can come to me at any moment, at any time; I want to speak to you and desire to grant you grace.
Soul: Lord, I doubt that You will pardon my numerous sins; my misery fills me with fright.
Jesus: My mercy is greater than your sins and those of the entire world. Who can measure the extent of my goodness? For you I descended from heaven to earth; for you I allowed myself to be nailed to the cross; for you I let my Sacred Heart be pierced with a lance, thus opening wide the source of mercy for you. Come, then, with trust to draw graces from this fountain. I never reject a contrite heart. Your misery has disappeared in the depths of My mercy. Do not argue with Me about your wretchedness. You will give me pleasure if you hand over to me all your troubles and griefs. I shall heap upon you the treasures of My grace. (Diary, 1485)

(Diary, 1486)

The Lord Tells Us Not To Be Anxious Or Afraid

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." (St. Paul, Philippians 4:6-7)

"But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me." (St. Paul, 2 Corinthians, 12:9)

"On one occasion, I felt an urge to set to work and fulfill whatever God is demanding of me. I entered the chapel for a moment and heard a voice in my soul saying, Why are you afraid? Do you think that I will not have enough omnipotence to support you? At that moment, my soul felt extraordinary strength, and all the adversities that could befall me in carrying out God's will seemed as nothing to me." (Diary, 527)

"Jesus: My child, know that the greatest obstacles to holiness are discouragement and an exaggerated anxiety. These will deprive you of the ability to practice virtue. All temptations united together ought not disturb your interior peace, not even momentarily. Sensitiveness and discouragement are the fruits of self-love. You should not become discouraged, but strive to make My love reign in place of your self-love. Have confidence, My child. Do not lose heart in coming for pardon, for I am always ready to forgive you. As often as you beg for it, you glorify My mercy." (Diary 1488)

"When I was somewhat overcome by the fear that I was to be outside the community for so long a time alone, Jesus said to me, You will not be alone, because I am with you always and everywhere. Near to My Heart, fear nothing. I myself am the cause of your departure. Know that My eyes follow every move of your heart with great attention. I am bringing you into seclusion so that I myself may form your heart according to My future plans. What are you afraid of? If you are with Me, who will dare touch you? Nevertheless, I am very pleased that you confide your fears to Me, My daughter: Speak to Me about everything in a completely simple and human way; by this you will give Me great joy. I understand you because I am God-Man. This simple language of your heart is more pleasing to Me than the hymns composed in My honor. Know, My daughter, that the simpler your speech is, the more you attract Me to yourself. And now, be at peace close to My Heart. Lay your pen aside and get ready to leave." (Diary, 797)

VIVA CRISTO REY! - LONG LIVE CHRIST THE KING!

Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ King of the Universe

Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ King of the Universe
The Feast of Christ The King - November 22, 2020
Christus Vincit, Christus Regnat, Christus Imperat
Christ Has Conquered, Christ Now Rules, Christ Now Reigns Supreme

Pope Pius XI instituted the Feast of Christ the King in his encyclical Quas Primas of 1925, in response to growing secularism and nationalism, and in the context of the unresolved Roman Question

"It has long been a common custom to give to Christ the metaphorical title of "King," because of the high degree of perfection whereby he excels all creatures. So he is said to reign "in the hearts of men," both by reason of the keenness of his intellect and the extent of his knowledge, and also because he is very truth, and it is from him that truth must be obediently received by all mankind. He reigns, too, in the wills of men, for in him the human will was perfectly and entirely obedient to the Holy Will of God, and further by his grace and inspiration he so subjects our free-will as to incite us to the most noble endeavors. He is King of hearts, too, by reason of his "charity which exceedeth all knowledge." And his mercy and kindness which draw all men to him, for never has it been known, nor will it ever be, that man be loved so much and so universally as Jesus Christ. But if we ponder this matter more deeply, we cannot but see that the title and the power of King belongs to Christ as man in the strict and proper sense too. For it is only as man that he may be said to have received from the Father "power and glory and a kingdom,"since the Word of God, as consubstantial with the Father, has all things in common with him, and therefore has necessarily supreme and absolute dominion over all things created."  (Pope Pius XI, Quas Primas, 7)

"When once men recognize, both in private and in public life, that Christ is King, society will at last receive the great blessings of real liberty, well-ordered discipline, peace and harmony." (Pope Pius XI, Quas Primas, 19)

Mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to My mercy.” (Diary, 300)

"For, I promise, you shall not see me any more until you say: Blessings on him who comes in the name of the Lord!" (Matthew 23:39)

MATER DEI - MOTHER OF GOD

Solemnity of  the Blessed Virgin Mary, The Mother of God

January 1, 2021 - New Year's Day
Solemnity of  the Blessed Virgin Mary, The Mother of God

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we saw his glory, the glory as it were of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”(John 1:14)

"I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that bears no fruit He cuts away, and every branch that does bear fruit He prunes to make it bear even more.You are pruned already, by means of the word that I have spoken to you. Make your home in Me, as I make mine in you. As a branch cannot bear fruit all by itself, but must remain part of the vine, neither can you unless you remain in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in Me, with Me in him, bears fruit in plenty; for cut off from me you can do nothing. Anyone who does not remain in Me is like a branch that has been thrown away – he withers; these branches are collected and thrown on the fire, and they are burnt. If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, you may ask what you will and you shall get it. It is to the glory of my Father that you should bear much fruit, and then you will be my disciples. As the Father has loved Me, so I have loved you. Remain in My love, If you keep my commandments you will remain in my love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and remain in His love. I have told you this so that My own joy may be in you and your joy be complete.This is My commandment: love one another, as I have loved you. A man can have no greater love than to lay down his life for his friends.You are my friends, if you do what I command you.I shall not call you servants any more, because a servant does not know his master’s business; I call you friends, because I have made known to you everything I have learnt from My Father. You did not choose me, no, I chose you; and I commissioned you to go out and to bear fruit, fruit that will last; and then the Father will give you anything you ask him in My name.What I command you is to love one another." (John 15) 

"While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud cast a shadow over them, - then from the cloud came a voice that said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.”
 (Transfiguration of Jesus, Matthew 17:5)
