Divine Mercy in My Soul

From the Diary of St. Faustina Kowalska

       After Holy Communion, when I had welcomed Jesus into my heart, I said to Him, “My love, reign in the most secret recesses of my heart, there where my most secret thoughts are conceived, where You alone have free access, in this deepest sanctuary where human thought cannot penetrate. May You alone dwell there, and may everything   I do exteriorly take its origin in You. I ardently desire, and I am striving with all the strength of my soul, to make You, Lord, feel at home in this sanctuary.”

(Diary 1721)

     My Response: I, too, Jesus, welcome You into the very depths of my heart when I receive You in the most Holy Eucharist. Remain there with me as I perform each task of my everyday routines.
