Novena of Divine Mercy, with my commentary
Novena: Third Day
Today bring to Me ALL DEVOUT AND FAITHFUL SOULS, and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. These souls brought Me consolation on the Way of the Cross. They were that drop of consolation in the midst of an ocean of bitterness (Diary, 1214).
My Prayer Response with St. Faustina:
Most Merciful Jesus, from the treasury of Your mercy, You impart Your graces in great abundance to each and all. Receive us into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart and never let us escape from It. We beg this grace of You by that most wondrous love for the heavenly Father with which Your Heart burns so fiercely (Diary, 1215).
My personal reflection: this is the group that today's moral relativists jeer at, hate, and are intensely intolerant of. These are the people who, though not perfect themselves, still believe in absolute objective morality, while using it to point to the need for forgiveness and mercy. In the recently concluded Year of Mercy, this group got only insults from Pope Francis himself, calling them rigid, Pharisee, followers of rigorism. And yet it was this group, above all others, who consoled our Blessed Lord on the cross.
