Today we adore the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus burning with love for us and try to return to Him our love and console Him in his bitter agony.
Excerpt from the Diary of St. Faustina on how our love consoles the Heart of Jesus:
“Then Jesus said to me, ’LOOK AND SEE THE HUMAN RACE IN ITS PRESENT CONDITION.’
In an instant, I saw horrible things: the executioners left Jesus, and other people started scourging Him; they seized the scourges and struck the Lord Mercilessly. These were priests, religious men and women, and high dignitaries of the Church, which surprised me greatly. There were lay people of all ages and walks of life. All vented their malice on the innocent Jesus. Seeing this, my heart fell as if into a mortal agony. And while the executioners had been scourging Him, Jesus had been silent and looking into the distance; but when those other souls I mentioned scourged Him, Jesus closed His eyes, and a soft but most painful moan escaped from His Heart. And Jesus gave me to know in detail the gravity of the malice of the ungrateful souls: ‘YOU SEE, THIS IS A TORTURE GREATER THAN MY DEATH.’ Then my lips too fell silent, and I began to experience the agony of death, and I felt that no one would comfort me or snatch me from that state but the One who had put me into it. Then the Lord said to me, ‘I SEE THE SINCERE PAIN OF YOUR HEART WHICH BROUGHT GREAT SOLACE TO MY HEART. SEE AND TAKE COMFORT.’”
