DIVINE MERCY DAILY REFLECTIONS (Jesus speaking to St. Faustina in bold print; from the Diary of St. Faustina)


Friday, January 22

Beg for Mercy
A Burning Desire to Save Souls

The Lord said to me, The loss of each soul plunges Me into mortal sadness. You always console Me when you pray for sinners. The prayer most pleasing to Me is prayer for the conversion of sinners. Know, My daughter, that this prayer is always heard and answered (Diary, 1397).

March 25,'38. Today, I saw the suffering Lord Jesus. He leaned down toward me and whispered softly, My daughter, help Me to save sinners. Suddenly, a burning desire to save souls entered my soul. When I recovered my senses, I knew just how I was to help souls, and I prepared myself for greater sufferings (Diary, 1645).

My Prayer Response:
Lord Jesus, I want to respond to Your "mortal sadness" caused by the loss of each soul. Give me a "burning desire to save souls" like that of St. Faustina. Give me the graces to even suffer for the conversion of sinners. 


O clement, O loving, O sweet Mother Mary,
We, your children of every nation,
Turn to you in this pandemic.
Our troubles are numerous; our fears are great.
Grant that we might deposit them at your feet,
Take refuge in your Immaculate Heart,
And obtain peace, healing, rescue,
And timely help in all our needs.
You are our Mother.
Pray for us to your Son.

Important Message to all Parishioners

If you know that one of your friends or loved ones is nearing death, or was recently diagnosed with a terminal illness, please notify the parish office immediately so that we can make an appointment to administer the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick. Oftentimes I am not notified until the final hours of life and not always able to get to them. In addition to my responsibilities in the parish, I too have aging and ill parents in Lafayette and am having to tend to their needs as well. Thank you for your consideration

. Fr. Buddy

Pro-Life News


The truth of God’s Word exists before Mary’s own choosing. She submits to a word, a truth she did not create. 

At the heart of the “pro-choice” mentality is the idea that we create our own truth. This mentality holds that the value of the unborn child, and that child’s right to exist, depend upon the choice of the mother.
