Embracing the Ocean of Divine Mercy and Divine Will
The Feast of Divine Mercy is a celebration of God's unfathomable love and mercy, which He pours out upon humanity. This feast, as revealed by Jesus to St. Faustina, is intended to be a refuge and shelter for all souls, especially poor sinners.
In her Diary, St. Faustina records Jesus' words, saying, "On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy" (Diary of St. Faustina, Entry No. 699).
Jesus also told St. Faustina that those who go to Confession and receive Holy Communion on this day would obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment: "The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment" (Diary of St. Faustina, Entry No. 699). He emphasized the importance of turning to the Fount of His Mercy, as mankind would not have peace until it does so.
In the Book of Heaven, Jesus reveals to Luisa Piccarreta His desire to lead humanity to the Era of the Third Fiat, where His love will show off in a marvelous and unheard-of way . Luisa's role in impetrating mercy from the Heavenly Father is evident in the Book of Heaven, where she dialogues with both Jesus and the Father, asking for mercy on behalf of humanity. Through her prayers and sacrifices as a victim soul, Luisa participates in God's plan to bring about this new era of love and divine mercy.
As we celebrate the Feast of Divine Mercy, let us remember the profound love and mercy that God offers us, and strive to participate in this divine plan by seeking His forgiveness, receiving the sacraments, and following the example of St. Faustina and Luisa Piccarreta in our own lives.
In this journey through the great mercy and love of Jesus for humanity, we delve into the profound wisdom shared by Him with St. Faustina and Luisa Piccarreta. Uncover the transformative power of the Feast of Divine Mercy as revealed to St. Faustina, and learn how Jesus intends to lead us into the Era of the Third Fiat through Luisa's experiences in the Book of Heaven. Witness the unwavering devotion and intercession of these two humble souls as they implore the Father's mercy, and uncover the profound impact their lives and revelations have on our journey toward deeper understanding and unity with God's infinite love.
In both the Book of Heaven (Vol. 6 - April 16, 1904 and Vol. 12 - September 26, 1919) and Diary of St. Faustina (Entry No. 699), the theme of Divine Mercy emerges as a central element. Both Luisa Piccarreta and St. Faustina communicate with Jesus and God the Father about His mercy and its impact on humanity.
In the Book of Heaven (Vol. 6 - April 16, 1904), Luisa pleads with Jesus for mercy on the suffering people, but Jesus emphasizes the importance of balancing mercy with justice. Similarly, St. Faustina's Diary (Entry No. 699) highlights Jesus' desire for the Feast of Divine Mercy to be a refuge for souls, offering complete forgiveness to those who seek it.
The concept of victim souls is addressed in the Book of Heaven (Vol. 12 - September 26, 1919), where Jesus explains that being a victim requires bearing the pains of others and experiencing the rigors of Divine Justice. This aligns with St. Faustina's focus on seeking mercy for sinners.
Finally, the Book of Heaven (Vol. 12 - February 8, 1921) introduces the Era of Love and the Third Fiat, a time when Jesus' love will be experienced in a completely new way. This era resonates with the mercy and forgiveness emphasized in St. Faustina's Diary (Entry No. 699), as both envision a future where humanity is transformed by God's love and mercy.
As we reflect upon the great mercy of God, we cannot overlook the vital roles played by St. Faustina and Luisa Piccarreta in communicating His unfathomable love and compassion to humanity. Their unwavering faith, devotion, and willingness to serve as channels of divine grace have moved the heart of God, allowing us to witness His boundless mercy in action.
St. Faustina, through her dedication to spreading the message of Divine Mercy, has opened the doors for countless souls to experience forgiveness, hope, and spiritual renewal. Her revelations have inspired the Feast of Divine Mercy, a refuge and shelter for all souls, especially poor sinners, reminding us that God's mercy is greater than any sin or transgression.
Luisa Piccarreta, through her profound experiences in the Book of Heaven, has unveiled the path to the Era of the Third Fiat, where God's Will reigns supreme, and His love confounds us in marvelous ways. Her life serves as a testament to the transformative power of surrendering to the Divine Will, and her intercession has moved the Father to mitigate His justice and shower the world with His mercy.
As we embrace the legacies of these two remarkable women, let us remember that the great mercy of God is ever-present, accessible, and inexhaustible. May their lives inspire us to draw closer to Jesus, trust in His infinite love, and become instruments of His mercy in a world that so desperately needs it.
Heavenly Father, we come before You, inspired by the teachings from the Book of Heaven, as shared by Your servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta, and the Diary of St. Faustina. United with the intercession of Luisa and St. Faustina, we seek to grow in understanding of Your Divine Mercy and Justice.
We pray for the grace to embrace the roles of victim souls, following the examples of Luisa and St. Faustina, who willingly suffered for the sake of others and offered themselves as instruments of Your divine plan. May we be ever-mindful of the Era of Love and the Third Fiat, when Jesus will confound humanity with love and establish His reign in a completely new and astounding way.
As we celebrate the Feast of Divine Mercy, we ask for the courage to approach the fount of Your mercy with sincere hearts, fully trusting in Your promise of forgiveness and grace. Help us to draw nearer to You, seeking refuge in Your boundless mercy, and finding peace in Your presence.
Through the intercession of Your faithful servants, Luisa Piccarreta and St. Faustina, we pray that You guide and strengthen us in our journey towards holiness and the fulfillment of Your divine Will in our lives.
In the name of Jesus, our Redeemer, and through the intercession of Luisa Piccarreta and St. Faustina, we pray. Amen.
