Faustina was born in Through her and her diary, Jesus communicates to the world the message of His Mercy. Not only have we been blessed with the Divine Mercy Chaplet and Divine Mercy Novena, but here are the 14 most inspiring quotes from St.
Faustina's Diary. My spirit burns in active love. I waste no time in dreaming. I take every moment singly as it comes, for this is within my power. The past does not belong to me; the future is not mine; with all my soul I try to make use of the present moment.
And the purer our love becomes, the less there will be within us for the flames of suffering to feed upon, and the suffering will cease to be a suffering for us; it will become a delight! By the grace of God, I have received such a disposition of heart that I am never so happy as when I suffer for Jesus, whom I love with every beat of my heart. I will spend all my free moments at the feet of the Master hidden in the Blessed Sacrament.
Pride keeps it in darkness. The soul neither knows how, nor is it willing, to probe with precision the depths of its own misery.
It puts on a mask and avoids everything that might bring it recovery. I have come to understand so many things, and even such that now amaze me. As often as I look upon the cross, so often will I forgive with all my heart. But as it has been given to drink a drop at a time, it has emptied the cup to the very bottom.
O Christ, if You Yourself did not support the soul, how much could it do of itself? We are strong, but with Your strength; we are holy, but with Your holiness. And of ourselves, what are we? The Lord, however, strengthens my will, against which all attempts of the enemy are shattered as if against a rock.
I see how many actual graces God grants me; these support me ceaselessly. I am very weak, and I attribute everything to the grace of God. A member of this group ought to perform at least one act of mercy per day; at least one, but there can be many more, for such deeds can easily be carried out by anyone, even the very poorest. For there are three ways of performing an act of mercy: the merciful word, by forgiving, and by comforting; secondly, if you can offer no word, then pray-that too is mercy; and thirdly, deeds of mercy.
And when the Last Day comes, we shall be judged from this, and on this basis we shall receive the eternal verdict. There is no misery that could be a match for My mercy, neither will misery exhaust it, because as it is being granted — it increases.
The soul that trusts in My mercy is most fortunate, because I Myself take care of it. In this hour you can obtain everything for yourself and for others for the asking; it was the hour of grace for the whole world — mercy triumphed over justice. Every time you go to confession, immerse yourself entirely in My mercy, with great trust, so that I may pour the bounty of My grace upon your soul.
When you approach the confessional, know this, that I Myself am waiting there for you. I am only hidden by the priest, but I Myself act in your soul. Here the misery of the soul meets the God of Mercy. Tell souls that from this fount of mercy souls draw graces solely with the vessel of trust. If their trust is great, there is no limit to My generosity. The torrent of grace inundate humble souls.
The proud remain always in poverty and misery, because My grace turns away from them to humble souls. Cart 0. About the author Posts by Sara and Justin Kraft. Related posts.

The Message of Mercy in the Diary of St. Faustina
The Diary of Saint Faustina Kowalska is one of the gems of mystical literature. Her earliest extant notes were written in July Later, her Vilnian spiritual director told her to reconstruct what she had destroyed. So, the Diary we have today, especially its first notebook, does not follow a chronological order. Sister Faustina intersperses current events and experiences with the description of things that happened earlier.
The Lord endowed Sister Faustina with tremendous graces: the gift of contemplation, a deep knowledge of the mystery of the mercy of God, visions, revelations, the hidden stigmata, the gifts of prophecy and of reading human souls, and also the rare gift of mystical espousal Diary Introduction, p. Your task is to write down everything that I make known to you about My mercy, for the benefit of those who by reading these things will be comforted in their souls and will have the courage to approach Me. If only they could understand that I am the best of Fathers to them and that it is for them that the Blood and Water flowed from My Heart as from a fountain overflowing with mercy. For them I dwell in the tabernacle as the King of Mercy.
