Amazing Grace How Can It Be?

Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures

Second Sunday of Easter-Divine Mercy Sunday

Amazing Grace How Can It Be?

This is an immense grace. How can I receive it? The grave doubt concerning this grace granted to me and my companion weighs upon my soul. Is this coming from my pride? At other times, it seems that the Blessed Virgin said nothing at all. In one word, I really do not understand. Maybe I doubt because my pride does not allow me to believe. “There is no need to believe everything.” (Elizabeth) (September 7-8, 1962)

Today’s Readings: Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me?
Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.” (John 20)

Prayer Meditation- O Lord, today is Divine Mercy Sunday. We thank You, we bless You, we adore You and we glorify You! Because today if we have gone to confession and have repented of our sins, receive You in a state of Grace today, venerate Your Divine Mercy image and completely trust in You all our sins will not only be forgiven but even the temporal punishment due to our sins is removed. Are we hearing You Lord- our sins will be totally gone! Gone as if we had a new baptism! And You will never remember them again! (Isaiah 43:25). And yet despite this extraordinary Gift and Grace, how many really receive it in love for the Love that never gives up and never lets go! How many bring our doubts, our fears, our anxieties and hang ups that stop us from really believing that this is true. Or worse, those that remain indifferent and say “we do not have to believe everything”. How many sadly still do not know what Divine Mercy is all about? O Lord, as You told Saint Faustina, Oh, how much I am hurt by a soul’s distrust! Such a soul professes that I am Holy and Just, but does not believe that I am Mercy and does not trust in My Goodness.  O Lord, we pray that all who take part in Divine Mercy Sunday tomorrow receive what You have to pour into our souls, Your Divine Mercy, with thanksgiving and love not only for ourselves but as if all received You pleading mercy, salvation, and sanctification of all souls! Jesus we trust in You and we cannot thank You enough!
