“When I awake, I am still with you.” Psalms 139:18

How many love stories are the real, immortal ones and still, how many are fulfilled in this life?

Today, we celebrate the feast of Divine Mercy; the one and only time in the world when Love was witnessed in the purest physical form, where the heart was actually pierced open with an outpouring of love. The one time when Mercy was manifested in abundance for the salvation of souls for generations to come.

It is not necessary that when we love someone, they should also love us in return. But it is imperative that we love Him, our divine and merciful Lord in return for His unfathomable love and mercy.
The signature of every Christian is mercy, love, hope, forgiveness, joy and peace. This is the heritage that we have received.

His mercy is with us always. Having miraculously escaped two days ago by just a fraction of a second from what could have been a tragic car crash due to an errant and speeding driver, I can only thank God unceasingly for His mercy and protection. What was significant was the fact that I was carrying the armor of God with me, His Living Word since the Bible was with me. The double edged sword for protection.

St. Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 that he was given a thorn in his flesh lest he should be exalted above measure. He asked the Lord thrice to take it way. But, the Lord answered that His grace was sufficient for him, for his strength was made perfect in weakness. Paul was then ready to take glory in his infirmities so that the power of Christ would be upon him. Similarly, we all have some thorns in our life, sickness , strife, a hidden pain that we must bear for the glory of God.

St. Faustina to whom the revelation of the Divine Mercy was given tells us of the Promises of the Lord on this day. Complete forgiveness of sins and punishment to those who go to Confession within eight days and receive Holy Communion, spending some time in Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament.

To those who honor His mercy and venerate the image of the Divine Mercy picture denoting the two rays of blood and water which flowed from His heart; He promises to be the merciful Savior at the hour of death.

Today, let us kiss the wound in His heart to ease His grief and remember the Mercy of the Heavenly father in allowing His Son to be the Sacrificial Lamb and go through the pain of the Cross for the redemption of sins.

Let us avail of this overwhelming mercy and turn to the fountain of His love seeking pardon and protection with a vow to recite this Chaplet daily. We also pray for the whole world , specially the conversion of sinners, whom the Lord is willing to forgive, however scarlet their sins.

This day, Mercy is overflowing from the wells of heaven to touch, heal and cleanse us. His love and mercy is dated forever.

The Risen Lord is still very much with us after having woken up from death which can never put us to sleep forever. For we awake with Him to a new Glorious Life.
