Samples From St. Faustina’s Diary

St Faustina’s Private Revelations lasted for more than twenty five years.  She heard and saw Our Lord many times during her life. She first heard Our Lord when she was seven.
Here are a few examples of when Jesus spoke to her as Sr. Faustina to enrich ones understanding of her deep interaction with Jesus.


“Mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to My mercy”

“(Let) the greatest sinners place their trust in My mercy. They have the right before others to trust in the abyss of My mercy. My daughter, write about My mercy towards tormented souls. Souls that make an appeal to My mercy, delight Me. To such souls I grant even more graces than they ask. I cannot punish even the greatest sinner if he makes an appeal to my compassion, but on the contrary, I justify him in My unfathomable and inscrutable mercy.” (Diary 1146)

In one of my morning talks with Him I said, “Jesus are You not an illusion?” Jesus answered me, “My love deceives no one”.

Jesus Talks to St Faustina

On one occasion I was reflecting on the Holy Trinity, on the essence of God. I absolutely wanted to know and fathom who God is… In an instant my spirit was caught up into what seemed to be the next world. I saw an inaccessible light, and in this light what appeared like three sources of light which I could not understand. And out of that light came words in the form of lightening which encircled heaven and earth. Not understanding anything, I was very sad. Suddenly, from this sea of inaccessible light came our dearly beloved Savior, unutterably beautiful with His shining Wounds. And from this light came a voice which said,” Who God is in His Essence, no one will fathom, neither the mind of Angels nor man.” Jesus said to me,Get to know God by contemplating His attributes.” A moment later, He traced the sign of the Cross with His hand and vanished.

“My Heart rejoices in this title of Mercy. “Proclaim that mercy is the greatest attribute of God. All the works of My hands are crowned with mercy.”

I said to the Lord, “Who will paint You as beautiful as You really are?” Then I heard these words: “Not in the beauty of the color, nor of the brush lies the greatness of this image, but in My grace”.

Jesus Talks To Sr Faustina

“Know that it will cost you much, so write these words on a clean sheet of paper; ‘From today on, my own will does not exist‘, and then cross out the page. And on the other side write these words: ‘From today on, I do the will of God everywhere, always, and in everything.‘ Be afraid of nothing; love will give you strength and make the realization of this easy.”

 

Confession With Jesus

“I am giving you three ways of exercising mercy toward your neighbor: the first- by deed, the second- by word, the third- by prayer. In these three degrees is contained the fullness of mercy, and it is an unquestionable proof of love for Me. By this means a soul glorifies and pays reverence to My mercy.”(Diary 298)

“Fear nothing. I am with you always” (Diary, 586).

 When you approach the confessional, know this, that I Myself am waiting there for you. I am only hidden by the priest, but I Myself act in your soul. Here the misery of the soul meets the God of mercy. Tell souls that from this fount of mercy souls draw graces solely with the vessel of trust. If their trust is great, there is no limit to My generosity.”(1602)

“Come with faith to the feet of My representative…and make your confession before Me. The person of the priest is, for Me, only a screen. Never analyze what sort of a priest that I am making use of; open your soul in confession as you would to Me, and I will fill it with My light.” (1725) “Here the misery of the soul meets the God of mercy.” (1602)
