PODCAST | “The Incarnation of Mercy”
“You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Matthew 5:48
For an example of what perfection could look like, let us read what St. Faustina wrote in her diary, “Neither graces, nor revelations, nor raptures, nor gifts granted to a soul make it perfect, but rather the intimate union of the soul with God. These gifts are merely ornaments of the soul, but constitute neither its essence nor its perfection.” St. Faustina died of tuberculosis in Krakow, Poland, on October 5, 1938. St. Faustina makes it clear that the intimate union of a soul with God relies on the prayer life a soul has nurtured with God.
In this meditation we reflect on the mercy of God through a deeper understanding of the Eucharist which reveals the true presence of Jesus resurrected and how Jesus is the incarnation of mercy itself.
