Divine Mercy in My Soul

From the Diary of St. Faustina…

January 27, 1937. I feel considerable improvement in my health. Jesus is bringing me from the gates of death to life, because there was so little left but for me to die, and lo, the Lord grants me the fullness of life. Although I am to remain in the sanatorium, I am almost completely well. I see that the will of God has not yet been fulfilled in me, and that is why I must live, for I know that if I fulfill everything the Lord has planned for me in this world, He will not leave me in exile any longer for heaven is my home. But before we go to our homeland, we must fulfill the will of God on earth; that is, trials and struggles must run their full course in us. (Diary 897)

MY RESPONSE: Lord, help me to live my earthly life to the fullest according to Your holy will. May I accomplish all that You have planned for me so that, when it is my turn to come home, all tasks will be completed. You will be done, O Lord!
