Our Greatest Potential:
The path of Jesus, if we take it up ourselves, can lead us to deep trust in our union with God. Ultimately, this union, if we come to rely on it, can unearth our greatest potential and bring us to our destiny.
Quote By S. Padre Pio:
May God be the center of yor heart and set it all on fire with His Holy Love!
Divine Mercy Reflection
Reflections on Notebook One: 11-111
This first notebook of Saint Faustina begins her private revelations given from the Heart of Jesus to her. She writes in a beautiful and simple way. Though, as mentioned in the introduction to this book, her actual words are not quoted in these reflections that follow, the messages that she received and articulated are presented.
In truth, her messages are those contained in Sacred Scripture and in the Tradition of our Church. And if you were to read through the lives and teachings of the saints, you would find the same revelations. God has always spoken to us throughout the ages. He speaks the one Message of Truth, and He reveals that Message in love. The revelations to Saint Faustina are one new way that God continues to speak and reveal Himself to us, His sons and daughters.
The reflections in this first chapter, based on the first notebook, are intentionally short and focused. They are a way for you, the reader, to slowly and carefully listen to the Heart of God spoken to this great saint. Read these reflections slowly and prayerfully. Ponder them throughout the day and allow the Lord to speak to You the message He wants to give.
Reflection 90: Unity With All
We are made for unity with one another. When there is a lack of unity, the effects are felt in families, communities and among nations. What is it that unites us more than anything? First and foremost, we are united with other souls through our Baptism (See Diary #391).
Think about the most basic fact that you share an unbreakable bond with each and every person who is baptized into Christ Jesus. Regardless of whether or not another is embracing their baptismal calling, the unity still remains. Think about that unity and cling to it. Allow yourself to see each and every baptized person as a true brother or sister in Christ. This will change the way you think about them and act toward them.
Lord, I thank You for the wonderful family You have created through the Sacrament of Baptism. I thank You that I am blessed to share in this family. Help me to love all Your children as a result of the simple fact that they are my brothers and sisters in You. Jesus, I trust in You.
