Divine Mercy Monthly Message

Spreading the honor of The Divine Mercy.  In discussing the essential elements of the Divine Mercy devotion, Rev. Rozycki also mentions the spreading of the honor of The Divine Mercy          as one of them since certain promises of Christ are related to this as well:  “Souls who spread the honor of My mercy I shield through their entire life as a tender mother her infant, and at the hour of death I will not be a Judge for them, but the Merciful Savior” (Diary, 1075).

The essence of The Divine Mercy devotion is found in the Christian attitude of trust in God and of an active love toward neighbor.  The Lord Jesus said:  “I desire trust from My creatures”” (Diary, 1059), and He expects them to exercise mercy through deeds, words, and prayers.  And further; “You are to show mercy to your neighbors always and everywhere.  You must not shrink from this or try to excuse or absolve yourself from it” (Diary, 742).  Christ wants those who worship Him to perform at least one act of love of neighbor in the course of each day.

The spreading of the honor of The Divine Mercy does not require many words, but always the Christian attitude of faith, of trust in God and of becoming ever more merciful.  In her life time St. Faustina gave the example of just such apostolic work.
