Our Youth

Youth Views: Divine Mercy

In honor of Divine Mercy Sunday, reflect on these words that Jesus spoke to St. Faustina as are recorded in her diary.

“The loss of each soul plunges Me into mortal sadness. You always console Me when you pray for sinners. The prayer most pleasing to Me is prayer for the conversion of sinners. Know, My daughter, that this prayer is always heard and answered.”

St. Faustina is proof of Divine involvement in our daily lives. This shows His care for us and calls us to care for others in the same way. An opportunity to care for others is to lead others away from sin.

Many people, even Catholics, forget to pray. Jesus tells us that He is always there to hear our sins and forgive us. It hurts Him to not hear us and so we must pray to Him so we can be heard and forgiven.

This quote shows how Jesus worked hard so that everyone may enjoy eternal life. Jesus cares about every single person and He is sad when one soul goes down to hell. Jesus wants mercy for sinners that they might have eternal life with God. Jesus loves everyone and I love Jesus.
