I am sure most of us deserve judgement. But Jesus said to St Faustina, "By means of this image I shall grant many graces to souls. It is to be a reminder of the demands of My mercy, because even the strongest faith is of no avail without works." (Diary 742)
Jesus very much wanted St Faustina to speak out about His Mercy. There was an urgency to His message, as the horrors of the Second World War were approaching, but also He told her "You will prepare the world for My final coming." (Diary 429) He told her that time was running out and that we needed to call on His Mercy BEFORE He came as the just Judge.
She was told, "I bear a special love for Poland, and if she will be obedient to My will, I will exalt her in might and holiness. From her will come forth the spark that will prepare the world for My final coming."
Many people (including little ol'me) believe that spark was Pope John Paul the Great who worked so hard to ensure the collapse of Russia's errors and who died on the eve of Divine Mercy, just after hearing the vigil Mass.
There are many beautiful promises associated with the Chaplet and Feast of Divine Mercy which must be linked with the Feast of The Sacred Heart of Jesus given to us through St Margaret Mary Alacoque. We have been offered so much Love. It seems this is not the time to be ignoring it. A time is coming when no one can claim invincible ignorance. Turn to His Love and Mercy now and find comfort for the times ahead.
The Dairy of St Faustina is something well worth reading.
