DIVINE MERCY DAILY REFLECTIONS (Jesus speaking to St. Faustina in bold print; from the Diary of St. Faustina)
My daughter, write that it pains Me very much when religious souls receive the Sacrament of Love merely out of habit, as if they did not distinguish this food. I find neither faith nor love in their hearts. I go to such souls with great reluctance. It would be better if they did not receive Me (Diary, 1288).
The office will be closed for Memorial Day on Monday, May 30th.
