Novena Of Divine Mercy, 7th Day, with additional commentary

Novena: Seventh Day
Today bring to Me THE SOULS WHO ESPECIALLY VENERATE AND GLORIFY MY MERCY, and immerse them in My mercy. These souls sorrowed most over My Passion and entered most deeply into My spirit. They are living images of My Compassionate Heart. These souls will shine with a special brightness in the next life. Not one of them will go into the fire of hell. I shall particularly defend each one of them at the hour of death (Diary, 1224).

My Prayer Response with St. Faustina:
Most Merciful Jesus, whose Heart is Love Itself, receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who particularly extol and venerate the greatness of Your mercy. These souls are mighty with the very power of God Himself. In the midst of all afflictions and adversities they go forward, confident of Your mercy. These souls are united to Jesus and carry all mankind on their shoulders. These souls will not be judged severely, but Your mercy will embrace them as they depart from this life (Diary, 1225).
My Commentary:
Does doing this novena, and spreading the message of Divine Mercy, help with me being rigid? I hope so.
 I do not think it is merciful to lie to people, is my problem. But reminding people that while their sin is a sin, it is in most cases not the unforgivable sin, can help people avoid the real unforgivable sin- failing to trust in Jesus Christ and his mercy.
