First Thursday of Lent

Standard

Excerpt from the Diary of St. Faustina:

O my Jesus, I will console You for all the ingratitude, the blasphemies, the coldness, the hatred of the wicked, the sacrileges (Diary – 80).

Meditation:

My Lord, I really do love You! Though I know I am not always very good at demonstrating this through my actions. I want to remain close to you in reparation for those who oppose You and who break Your Heart in this way. As You said from the Cross, they do not know what they are doing. I will love You for them, to make up for the lack of love in their hearts. In this way, I hope to also win graces for their conversion. For if they truly knew You, how could they not love You?

– Fr. Joseph Roesch, MIC

 God Bless.
