We hope that you will use this resource to grow in your understanding of both how to receive and show God’s gift of mercy. In addition to these quotes, we encourage you to act by taking part in the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy. Also, don’t forget to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet daily!
Finally, one last quote from the diary of St. Faustina to inspire us to act in mercy during this year.
“You are to show mercy to your neighbors always and everywhere. You must not shrink from this or try to excuse or absolve from it. I am giving you three ways of exercising mercy toward your neighbor: the first – by deed, the second – by word, the third – by prayer. In these three degrees is contained the fullness of mercy, and it is an unquestionable proof of love for Me. By this means a soul glorifies and pays reverence to My mercy.”
