Ceaseless the prayer You desire of me.
Your Eyes behold me.
You wait for me to lift my eyes
From the world
To gaze heavenward,
To behold You smiling upon me.
You long for our eyes to meet
In an exchange of love
Ceaseless prayer is no less
Than a return of Love’s attention,
Glances passed one to the Other,
Constancy of care,
Hearts speak in wordless knowing
All the while willing to know and be known.
The Greater gifting the lesser
With nothing less than His own Life.
The world becomes a room
Filled with the Light You shed
As I become a candle
Held in the Hand of God,
Melting in a pool,
Readied for a new mold,
True to the goodness
God gives me,
As He beholds
His creation from eternity
And says throughout Time
“It is good. ”

REMINDING YOU ALL that this Sunday is DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY.
JESUS to St. Faustina Kowalska on DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY . . . . . . .
” Tell the whole world about My inconceivable mercy. I desire that the FEAST OF MERCY be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy. THE SOUL THAT WILL GO TO CONFESSION AND RECEIVE HOLY COMMUNION WILL OBTAIN COMPLETE FORGIVENESS OF SINS AND PUNISHMENT.”
— St. Faustina Diary, 699
Humbly asking those, whose Parish Churches are open or have re-opened TO PLEASE INCLUDE IN YOUR PRAYERS ON THIS DAY OF MERCY, your brothers and sisters-in-Christ, whose Parish Churches are still close. Thank you very much.
JESUS, KING OF MERCY, WE TRUST IN YOU !
