Divine Mercy in My Soul

From the Diary of St. Faustina…

Although I was very tired today, I nevertheless resolved to make a Holy Hour.  I could not pray, nor could I remain kneeling, but I remained in prayer for a whole hour and united myself in spirit with those souls who are already worshiping God in the perfect way.  But towards the end of the hour, I suddenly saw Jesus, who looked at me penetratingly and said with ineffable sweetness, “Your prayer is extremely pleasing to Me.”  After these words, an unusual power and spiritual joy entered my soul.  Oh, what happens to a soul that meets the Lord face to face, no pen has ever expressed or ever will express!  (Diary 691)

My response:  O Lord, help me to overcome all obstacles to prayer and learn to pray in that perfect way so that one day I may see You face to face.
