I desire that the first Sunday after Easter be the Feast of Mercy. 
(Diary # 299)
 
“Tell the whole world of My great Mercy; that whoever approaches the Fount of Life on this day will be granted complete remission of sins and punishment.+Mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to My Mercy. +Oh, how much I am hurt by a soul’s distrust! Such a soul professes that I am Holy and Just, but does not believe that I am Mercy and does not trust in My Goodness.Even the devils glorify My Justice but do not believe in My Goodness.My Heart rejoices in this title of Mercy.” 
(Diary # 300)
 
Gods Mercy
 

It’s the 3 o’clock hour the day before Divine Mercy Sunday, and I was just informed of yet another young person who chose to take his own life. I offer this post for him and his family, and for all those who have walked this path and found no way to endure the heavy cross.

I offer this post too for all those who battle on with thoughts of taking their own life. I pray for you daily, and ask my readers to pray for you too. The message of Jesus’ Divine Mercy is for you. Blessed John Paul II made a point of telling us, “Do not be afraid!…Fear not!” Often, depression is a fearful thing, and anyone ever been caught in an undertow might have a sense that, depression can leave one feeling there is no escape. What seems like the way to the surface and to relief, leaves one still struggling to find it. As overwhelming as it may seem, the wave will pass. Wait. Pray. Talk to someone until it does.

I’ll say it again. It is a cross. Jesus endured six hours on the Cross. In moments, we too must stay close to Him in his suffering, until the light of Easter and Resurrection come. It. Will. Come.

The following song is one of my favorite #RoadRosary songs, that I often turn to when I travel alone. During its soothing melody, I pour out my prayers for those who request intercession. Today, it is for all those heavily burdened. Let us give our burdens to Jesus.

Blessed Divine Mercy Sunday everyone!

Never Despair in God’s Mercy

Thomas L. McDonald at God and the Machine wrote, “There are some taking to social networks to say Matthew Warren’s final act dooms him to Hell. I prefer the question of Hans Urs von Balthasar: Dare we hope that Hell is empty? Dare we hope that all are saved? Yes. We dare. We’re Christians…in which we recognize the pure power of God’s infinite mercy. We trust the soul of a troubled young man to a merciful God..”
