Friday's Divine Mercy Minutes

The Ardor of Your Heart

 

Meditation:

Know, My daughter, that the ardor of your heart is pleasing to Me. And just as you desire ardently to become united with Me in Holy Communion, so too do I desire to give Myself wholly to you; and as a reward for your zeal, rest on My Heart (Diary, 826).
 

My Prayer Response:

Lord Jesus, set my heart on fire to receive You with greater desire and fervor. May Your Eucharistic presence be my reward. Let me rest on Your Heart.

My Power

 

Meditation:

In the Host is your power; It will defend you (Diary, 616).
From the ciborium came a voice: These hosts have been received by souls converted through your prayer and suffering (Diary, 709).

My Prayer Response:

Lord Jesus, may the Eucharist be my power in the battle of life and the power of my intercession for souls. As I receive You in Holy Communion, help me to offer my little sufferings to You for the sake of souls.

How's your day going?

Hi folks,
Of course, it's Hump Day, so you are on the downward swing for this work week, unless of course, you don't work Monday through Friday.  How's the weather where you are?  We have some very hot and humid weather approaching us during the next five days or so.  I guess you know that leaves me staying inside during that time.  At least we have central air conditioning.

What have you all been up to lately?  I hope that anyone who is retired, has been keeping busy doing something constructive.  As for me, I've been fighting an infection for the last week or so.  I am now on the downward swing of it, of which I am very thankful.  My husband has also been not feeling well for the last couple of days.  Hopefully he's on the mend as well.

I have been working on my blankets for children who are hospitalized, as well as, my handmade Christmas ornaments for this year.  I now have all the ornaments finished, and have started my gift money holders.  I only have one of those finished so I still have about 21 to go yet.

I am so thankful that I have my creative abilities, especially since I have to live a very sedentary life style.  My sister has been visiting for the last three or four weeks.  She stays with my Brother and Sister-in-Law and comes in to visit me a couple times a week.  I've been teaching her how do so some embroidery work, so she can have some hand made gifts for her family for Christmas.  It's rough when you get old and have very little money coming in to buy gifts.  As far as I'm concerned, the hand made kind are the best kind!  I have enjoyed spending time with her and will be a little sad when she returns home once again.

I hope you have been enjoying the daily "Divine Mercy Minutes" I have been posting.  I've noticed that the number of people reading my blog has increased since I've started posting them.  I read mine every day and would feel lost without them and saying the Chaplet daily.

Stay well and may God bless each of you.
Susan

Wednesday'a Mercy Minutes...

I Am Always with You

 

Meditation:

I am always in your heart; not only when you receive Me in Holy Communion, but always (Diary, 575).
Know, My daughter, that you caused Me more sorrow by not uniting yourself with Me in Holy Communion than you did by that small transgression (Diary, 612).
 

My Prayer Response:

Lord Jesus, thank You for Your constant presence in my heart, even when my heart is veiled with darkness. May I not grieve You by doubting that You are with me always.

The Same Love

 

Meditation:

Approach each of the sisters with the same love with which you approach Me; and whatever you do for them, you do it for Me (Diary, 285).
I am your patron. Read. I looked at once at the inscription and read, “Patron for the Year 1935 — the Most Blessed Eucharist” (Diary, 360).

My Prayer Response:

Lord Jesus, help me with Your grace to approach each of my brothers and sisters with the same love I approach You in the Holy Eucharist. What a marvel of grace that would be.

Monday's Mercy Minutes...

Divine Mercy Daily

Unite Yourself with Me

 

Meditation:

My daughter, do not omit Holy Communion unless you know well that your fall was serious; apart from this, no doubt must stop you from uniting yourself with Me in the mystery of My love. Your minor faults will disappear in My love like a piece of straw thrown into a great furnace. Know that you grieve Me much when you fail to receive Me in Holy Communion (Diary, 156).
 

My Prayer Response:

Lord Jesus, may my minor faults disappear in the fire of Your love when I receive You in Holy Communion. In no way, do I want to grieve You.

Sunday's Mercy Minutes...

Divine Mercy Daily

Jesus with Me

 

Meditation:

[One time when St. Faustina received Holy Communion, a second Host fell into her hand.]
I desired to rest in your hands, not only in your heart. And at that moment I saw the little Jesus. But when the priest approached, I saw once again only the Host (Diary, 160).
One morning after Holy Communion, I heard this voice, I desire that you accompany Me when I go to the sick (Diary, 183).

My Prayer Response:

Thank You, Jesus, for Your desire to come into my heart in Holy Communion. Increase my desire for You that I may receive You with more fervor. I also pray that the sick would be strengthened by receiving You in Holy Communion.
