Our Pride Stands In The Way of Divine Mercy

[How tragic that we allow our pride and reluctance to seek Sacramental confession separate us from Divine Mercy and eternal life.]

"Come now, let us set things right, says the Lord: Though your sins be
like scarlet, they may become white as snow; though they be crimson red, they may become white as wool. – Isaiah 1:18

Oh, how painful it is to Me that souls so seldom unite themselves with me in Holy Communion. I wait for souls, and they are indifferent toward Me. I love them tenderly and sincerely, and they distrust Me. I want to lavish My graces on them and they do not want to accept them.  They treat Me as a dead object, whereas My Heart is full of love and mercy."

(Jesus to St. Maria Faustina Kowalska – Diary of Saint Faustina 1447)
