Daily Reflections on Divine Mercy

John Paul Thomas

Daily Reflections on Divine Mercy: 365 Days with Saint Faustina. Reflections and prayers inspired by the Diary of Divine Mercy.

The Diary of Saint Faustina is a spiritual treasure given to the Church by Jesus Himself through the humble instrumentality of a cloistered nun. It consists of Saint Faustina’s six handwritten notebooks revealing her faith and her daily encounters with our Lord.

These short reflections were written to help you discover the spiritual wisdom revealed by Saint Faustina in her Diary. A total of 365 short spiritual reflections will be posted throughout the year for your daily meditation, inspiration and prayer. The written content of these reflections is available to you online at our website. It is also available for purchase in ebook and paperback format.

May the Mercy of God transform you each and every day as you continue your journey of personal conversion!

Listen to the last episode:

If you were a criminal, incarcerated for some crime, you would most likely see life from a perspective that is very different from others.  You would daily long to have your punishment removed and your status of freedom restored.  However, an act of mercy of this sort is rarely offered by secular society.  Instead, harshness and judgment is the norm.  But God is much different.  God is perfectly aware of everything you have ever done in violation of His law.  He sees even the minutest sin.  And in the end, He will administer His strict justice upon all those who have not been bathed in the justice of His Mercy.  So bathe in Mercy now and help others to do the same.  God offers this Mercy in varied ways.  One specific way God offers the Mercy which appeases His judgment is through your heart.  By daily offering your heart to our Lord and by daily offering it for others, God’s judgment is transformed. He sees your holy heart, enters it, and then allows you to offer it for the sanctification of others.  In this way you are able to win many souls for God on account of His perfect justice of Mercy (See Diary #1193).

When you look at others, what do you see?  Do you see a sinner who deserves punishment for their sins?  If so, be careful because this is how God will in turn see you.  Strive to see the sins of others as opportunities to pray for them and as opportunities to become an instrument of the Mercy of God.  God invites your participation in this act of atonement and withholds nothing when you commit yourself to this act of love.

Lord, please transform the way I see others, especially the sinner.  Help me to withhold my own judgment and, in turn, to offer my heart filled with love as an act of Your Divine Mercy.  Cleanse every soul, dear Lord, and forgive every sin on account of my love for You.  Jesus, I trust in You.
