Meditation:The Mystery of the Grace of Suffering
Divine Mercy In My Soul Diary by Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska 

The wisdom of Saint Faustina is evident in these words she said:

“Suffering is the greatest treasure on earth; it purifies the soul. In suffering, we learn who is our true friend.”
(Diary 342)

The Words of Our Lord Jesus Christ

Suffering is a great grace; through suffering the soul becomes like the Savior; in suffering love becomes crystallized; the greater the suffering, the purer the love.  (Diary 57)

I suffer even greater pain than that which you see.  Look and see the human race in its present condition.  You see, this is a torture greater than My death. (Diary 445)

Those who are like Me in the pain and contempt they suffer will be like Me also in glory. And those who resemble Me less in pain and contempt will also bear less resemblance to Me in glory. (Diary 446)

O soul steeped in darkness, do not despair.  All is not yet lost.  Come and confide in your God, who is love and mercy.

What joy fills My heart when you return to Me.  Because you are weak , I take you in My arms and carry you to the home of My Father.

My child you have a special claim on My mercy.  Let it act in your poor soul; let the rays of grace enter your soul; they bring with them light, warmth, and life.

My child, all your sins have not wounded My heart as painfully as your present lack of trust does – that after so many efforts of My love and mercy, you should still doubt My goodness.

Tell me all, My child, hide nothing from Me, because My loving Heart, the Heart of your Best Friend, is listening to you. (Diary 1486)

Poor soul, I see that you suffer much and that you do not have even the strength to converse with me.  So I will speak to you.  Even though your sufferings were very great, do not lose heart or give in to despondency.  But tell Me, my child, who has dared to wound your heart?  Tell me about everything, be sincere in dealing with Me, reveal all the wounds of your heart.  I will heal them, and your suffering will become a source of your sanctification. (Diary 1487)

True, My child , all that is painful. But there is no way to heaven except the way of the cross. I followed it first. You must learn that it is the shortest and surest way.” (Diary 1487)                          

It is because you are not of this world that the world hates you. First it persecuted Me. Persecution is a sign that you are following in My footsteps faithfully. (1487)

Learn from this that no one will understand a soul entirely –that is beyond human ability.  Therefore, I have remained on earth to comfort your aching heart and to fortify your soul, so that you will not falter on the way.  You say that a dense darkness is obscuring your mind.  But why, at such times do you not come to Me, the light who can in an instant pour into your soul more understanding about holiness than can be found in any books?

Know, too, that the darkness about which you complain I first endured in the garden of olives when my soul was crushed in mortal anguish.  I am giving you a share in those sufferings because of My special love for you and in view of the high degree of holiness I am intending for you in heaven. A suffering soul is closest to My Heart. 

My child, make the resolution never to rely on people.  Entrust yourself completely to My will saying “Not as I want, but according to Your will, O God, let it be done unto me.” These words, spoken from the depths of one’s heart, can raise a soul to the summit of sanctity in a short time.  In such a soul I delight.  Such a soul gives Me Glory.  Such a soul fills heaven with the fragrance of her virtue.  But understand that the strength by which you bear sufferings comes from frequent Communions.  So approach this fountain of mercy often, to draw with the vessel of trust whatever you need. 

You see, My child, what you are of yourself.  The cause of your falls is that you rely too much upon yourself and too little on Me.  But let this not sadden you so much.  You’re dealing with the God of mercy, which your misery cannot exhaust .  Remember, I did not allot only a certain number of pardons. (Diary 1488)

My child, know that the greatest obstacles to holiness are discouragement and an exaggerated anxiety.  These will deprive you of the ability to practice virtue.  All temptations united together ought not disturb your interior peace , not even momentarily.  Sensitiveness and discouragement are the fruits of self-love.  You should not become discouraged , but strive to make My love reign in place of your self-love.  Have confidence, My child.  Do not lose heart in coming for pardon, for I am always ready to forgive you.  As often as you beg for it, you glorify My mercy. (Diary 1488)

My child, life on earth is a struggle indeed; a great struggle for My kingdom.  But fear not, because you’re not alone.  I am always supporting you, so lean on Me as you struggle, fear nothing.  Take the vessel of trust and draw from the fountain of life – for yourself, but also for other souls, especially such as are distrustful of My goodness. (Diary 1488)

In a soul that lives on My love alone, I reign as in heaven.  I watch over it day and night.  In it I find My happiness.  My ear is attentive to each request of its heart; often I anticipate its requests. (Diary 1489)

But child , you are not yet in your homeland: So go, fortified by my grace, and fight for My kingdom in human souls; fight as a King’s child would ; and remember that the days of your exile will pass quickly , and with them the possibility of earning merit for heaven (Diary 1489)

If God Is Merciful, Then Why Is There Suffering?

Fr. Chris Alar, The Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception of The Most Blessed Virgin Mary (Marian Seminarians, Holy Priests, Apostles of Divine Mercy) The National Shrine of The Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, MA.

 

These things I command you, that you love one another. If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated me before you.  If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember my word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for my name's sake: because they know not him who sent me. If I had not come, and spoken to them, they would not have sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. He that hateth me, hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works that no other man hath done, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father.  But that the word may be fulfilled which is written in their law: They hated me without cause. (John 15:18-25)
