Reflection 110: The Rays of Mercy


The Mercy of the Heart of Jesus shines forth with great radiance.  This was the image of Divine Mercy seen by Saint Faustina.  The open Heart of our Lord burst forth with an outpouring of light and grace on the world.  Jesus wants to continue to shine forth on the world, and He wants to rest in your heart so that He may shine on others through you (See Diary #514).

What is in your heart?  Is it bitterness and pain?  Is it sin and darkness?  Or is it the Heart of our Lord?  Does Jesus live in your heart?  These questions are so very important to answer honestly.  If you cannot honestly say that the Heart of Jesus rests in your heart, then this is an important revelation to ponder.  Seek to let His Heart melt away any sin and dispel any darkness.  In their place, let His light shine forth.  When the Heart of Jesus rests in yours, your heart will radiate Mercy and bathe others in its rays.

Lord, as I look at my heart, I see sin and darkness at times.  Come live in my heart, dispel all darkness and wipe away all sin.  As You take possession of my heart, shine forth Your Divine rays of Mercy upon me, and upon a world in need.  I give my heart to You, dear Lord.  Jesus, I trust in You.
