Divine Mercy

One of the books that I brought to the beach is Divine Mercy in My Soul by St. Faustina. On page 333 it says "Speak to the world about my mercy; let all mankind recognize My unfathomable mercy." When I was in the presence of the Divine Mercy I had never even heard of St Faustina ( ) , but it was communicated (not through words) to me that I was in the presence of the mercy of Jesus. When I first saw the Divine Mercy picture it struck me like a bolt of lightning because it reminded me so much of my experience with Him, but I can also understand St. Faustina's dissatisfaction with this image. The colors of the rays which pierced my soul were colors I had never seen on earth and the reality of His Divine Presence is inexplicable in earthly terms. He is pure truth, pure mercy, pure love and pure justice. He knows us better than we know ourselves. The Lord is very gentle and kind and not one person on this earth should be afraid to approach Him. No matter how sinful a person has been in their past He will forgive them if they are truly sorry for their sins.

People sometimes ask me "Why you? What did you ever do to deserve this?" The answer is....I did nothing. This was pure grace. For some reason that only the Lord knows, He chose to make me an example of His mercy and for this I will always be grateful. The Lord has also shown me that this infinite mercy is for all who ask for it and I truly mean EVERYONE.

For years I have searched the internet trying to find someone who has been in the presence of the Divine Mercy in this way and if there is, please write to me as I would love to hear about it.

Thank you Lord!
