ST. FAUSTINA ON PRAYING AND OFFERING SACRIFICES FOR OTHERS


ST. FAUSTINA ON PRAYING AND OFFERING SACRIFICES FOR OTHERS

Dear friends, here you have an edifying quote taken from St. Faustina’s Diary which describes how she generously prayed and offered sacrifices in reparation for the sins of mankind. May we imitate her generosity on this regard.

“I came to know of the condition of a certain soul and of what in that soul is displeasing to God. I learn it in the following way: I immediately feel pain in my hands, my feet and my side, in those places where the hands, feet and side of the Savior were pierced. At that same time, I receive knowledge of the soul’s condition and of the nature of the sin committed.
1248 I experience a desire to make reparation to the Lord Jesus in a way which corresponds [to the offense]. Today I wore a chain belt for seven hours in order to obtain the grace of repentance for that soul. In the seventh hour I felt relief as the soul experienced interiorly the remission of its sin, although it had not yet gone to confession. For sins of the flesh, I mortify the body and fast to the degree that I am permitted. For sins of pride, (14) I pray with my forehead touching the floor. For sins of hatred, I pray and do some good deed for a person whom I find difficult. And thus I make amends according to the nature of the sin of which I am aware. (St. Faustina, Diary, 1247-1248).”

Fr. Rolly A.
