An inkling of God, his love, compassion, and mercy
Let the greatest sinners place their trust in My mercy. They have the right before others to trust in the abyss of My mercy. My daughter, write about My mercy towards tormented souls. Souls that make an appeal to My mercy delight Me. To such souls, I grant even more graces than they ask. I cannot punish even the greatest sinner if he makes an appeal to My compassion, but on the contrary, I justify him in My unfathomable and inscrutable mercy. Write: before I come as a just Judge, I first open wide the door of My mercy. He who refuses to pass through the door of My mercy must pass through the door of My justice….. Faustian Diary 1146
In the Incarnation, the “Word became flesh” to give us an inkling of God, his love, compassion, and mercy. Jesus has also revealed how important our everyday choices are and how dreadful the gift of free will is because it can lead us from the love of God. People don’t want to hear that, or if believed, it is something that is put on others sans themselves. Keeping their selves exempt from the human enterprise of choosing to allow grace to create us, rather than we creating ourselves. Self-Creation apart from God’s grace is a path that leads to becoming totally self-absorbed to the exclusion of all others. For me, this is not comforting at all, but if truly understood could lead to terror….such is the price of freedom.
Yet we are told not to fear, because God, the Infinite, the wholly other, the Incomprehensible, has revealed to us that his true nature is ‘Love’ and “Mercy’. I still don’t fully understand it, yet the depth of my trust in God’s love for me and all others deepens as I age. So when I pray the “Our Father”, I am united to everyone, past, present, and future, for when said prayerfully, it is addressed to “Our Father”, not my Father. God is not owned by anyone no matter the depth of their faith or understanding.-Br.MD
