{F56} Divine Mercy in My Soul

Divine Mercy in My Soul

I am currently reading Divine Mercy in My Soul, more commonly called The Diary, as part of my Lenten practices. I have read excerpts of The Diary before but this time, I intend to read the whole book. It is a rather large book with over 700 pages! This is primarily a book for spiritual reading and so I suspect that this book will take me quite some time to finish. Hopefully, by Easter (or at least Divine Mercy Sunday), I will be finished with my first reading of The Diary.

From Divine Mercy in My Soul: Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska by Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska (paragraph 56):

From the beginning I have been aware of my weakness. I know very well what I am of myself, because for this purpose Jesus has opened the eyes of my soul;
I am an abyss of misery, and hence I understand that whatever good
there is in my soul consists solely of His holy grace.

    • The sheer size has been putting me off from it but I decided I really need to read it before I go to Poland this summer. So far, it is a great book.
      Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a great weekend!

    • Thanks. I will do my best to get through this book this time. Every other time I have considered it, I have pushed it away.
      Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
