"No traveling soul can worthily love its God, but when this soul
does everything it possibly can, and trusts in divine mercy, why
should Jesus reject it? Didn't He command us to love God
in accordance with our strength? When you have given and
consecrated everything to God, why do you fear?" - St Pio (1916)
DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY
‘I stand as a beggar before the mercy of God,
praying that He will heal all the infirmities of my soul’. St Bruno
St Faustina: "When I steeped myself in prayer, I was transported in spirit
to the Chapel, where I saw the Lord Jesus, exposed in the Monstrance. In place of the Monstrance I saw the glorious face of the Lord, and He said to me:
"What you see in reality, these souls see through faith. Oh, how pleasing to Me is their great faith! You see, although there appears to be no trace of life in Me, in reality it is present in its fullness in each and every Host. But for Me to be able to act upon the soul, the soul must have faith. O how pleasing to Me is living faith!"

POPE JOHN PAUL II
"Do not let that hope die! Stake your lives on it!
We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures;
we are the sum of the Father's love for us and our
real capacity to become the image of His Son."
Pope John Paul II
