Diary: Divine Mercy in My Soul Bl. Sister M. Faustina Kowalska The diary of a Catholic nun who had mystical experiences of the Christ and His infinite mercy toward all people.
"Rejoice, all you creatures, for you are closer to God in His infinite mercy than a baby to its mother's heart."
"Great love can change small things into great ones, and it is only love which lends value to our actions."
"All that exists is saturated with God."
"I have never sought God in some far-off place, but within myself. It is in the depths of my own being that I commune with my God."
"Love endures everything, love is stronger than death, love fears nothing."
"O joy that flows from the knowledge of one's self! O unchanging Truth!"
"When I hesitate on how to act in some situations, I always ask love. It advises best."
"I see that everything that surrounds me is filled with God."
"It is love that has meaning and power and merit….love compensates for the chasms."
"Love knows no gates or guards;…it will work its way through wilderness and scorching heat, through storm, thunder and darkness, and will reach the source from which it came, and there it will endure forever."
"Everlasting love, pure flame, burn in my heart ceaselessly and deify my whole being, according to Your infinite pleasure by which You summoned me into existence and called me to take part in Your everlasting happiness."
"There is nothing to fear, there where love is the guide."
"God will do a soul no harm, because He is Love itself, and in this unfathomable love has called it into being."
"I love all people because I see the image of God in them."
"God's justice is so great and penetrating that it reaches deep into the heart of things."
"Pure love is capable of great deeds, and it is not broken by difficulty or adversity….It knows that only one thing is needed to please God: to do even the smallest things out of great love – love, and always love."
"One God, whose bosom is full of love for all, as a good Father You scorn no one."
"God is love, and His Spirit is peace."
"Only love has meaning; it raises up our smallest actions into infinity."
"Help me, O Lord, that my eyes may be merciful, so that I may never suspect or judge by appearances, but look for what is beautiful in my neighbors' souls."
