Greetings Prayer Warriors,
In speaking with friends, many worry about some of their deceased relatives and wonder about the state of their souls at death. One will never know the internal desires of a loved one’s soul at the moment their body passes from life to death, but we are assured of our Lord’s unfathomably mercy. If the Lord pursues us relentlessly in life, how much more He must pursue our souls at the moment of our death!
In St. Faustina’s Diary*, through the revelations God granted her, one can read of the Lord’s endless pursuit of a despairing soul. Grace upon grace was poured upon the soul.
“O soul steeped in darkness, do not despair. All is not yet lost. Come and confide in your God, who is love and mercy.” (1486)
This is consistent with what we read in scripture.
In praise and gratitude for our loving and merciful God, let us pray for the souls of all those who have gone before us, that they may be graced with the gift of eternal rest. Additionally, when our friends, families, and selves are called to leave this world, may we too willingly accept the saving grace that we are given.
Peace, Joy, and Love,
Spread the Divine Mercy message. Share the hope. Pray for souls! Pass it on!
