Conversation of the Merciful God with a Despairing Soul

From the Diary of Saint Faustina entry number 1486.

Conversation of the Merciful God with a Despairing Soul

Jesus: “O soul steeped in darkness, do not despair. All is not yet lost. Come and confide in your God, who is love and mercy.”

– But the soul, deaf even to this appeal, wraps itself in darkness

Jesus calls out again: My child, listen to the voice of your merciful Father.

– In the soul arises this reply: “For me there is no mercy,” and it falls into greater darkness, a despair which is a foretaste of hell and makes it unable to draw near to God.

Jesus calls to the soul a third time, but the soul remains deaf and blind, hardened and despairing. Then the mercy of God begins to exert itself, and, without any cooperation from the soul, God grants it final grace. If this too is spurned, God will leave the soul in this self-chosen disposition for eternity. This grace emerges from the merciful Heart of Jesus and gives the soul a special light by means of which the soul begins to understand God’s effort; but conversion depends on its own will. The soul knows that this, for her, is final grace and, should it show even a flicker of good will, the mercy of God will accomplish the rest.

My omnipotent mercy is active here. Happy the soul that takes advantage of this grace.

Jesus: What joy fills My heart when you return to Me. Because you are weak, I take you in My arms and carry you to the home of My Father.

Soul: (as if awakening, asks fearfully): Is it possible that there yet is mercy for me?

Jesus: There is, My child. You have a special claim on My mercy. Let it act in your poor soul; let the rays of grace enter your soul; then bring with them light, warmth, and life.

Soul: But fear fills me at the thought of my sins, and this terrible fear moves me to doubt your goodness.

Jesus: My child, all your sins have not wounded My heart as painfully as your present lack of trust does – that after so many efforts of My love and mercy, you should still doubt My goodness.

Soul: O Lord, save me Yourself, for I perish. Be my Savior. O Lord, I am unable to say anything more; my pitiful heart is torn asunder; but You, O Lord…

Jesus does not let the soul finish but, raising it from the ground, from the depths of its misery, He leads it into the recesses of His heart where all its sins disappear instantly, consumed by the flames of love.

Jesus: Here, soul, are the treasures of My heart. Take everything you need from it.

Soul: O Lord, I am inundated with Your grace. I sense that a new life has entered into me and, above all, I feel Your love in my heart. That is enough for me. O Lord, I will glorify the omnipotence of Your goodness, I will confide to You all the sorrows of my heart.

Jesus: Tell Me all, My child, hide nothing from Me, because My loving Heart, the Heart of your Best Friend, is listening to you.

Soul: O Lord, now I see all my ingratitude and Your goodness. You were pursuing me with Your grace, while I was frustrating Your benevolence. I see that I deserve the depths of hell for spurning Your graces.

Jesus (interrupting): Do not be absorbed in your misery – you are still too weak to speak of it – but, rather, gaze on My Heart filled with goodness, and be imbued with My sentiments. Strive for meekness and humility; be merciful to others, as I am to you; and, when you feel your strength failing, if you come to the fountain of mercy to fortify your soul, you will not grow weary on your journey.

Soul: Now I understand Your mercy, which protects me, and like a brilliant star, leads me into the home of my Father, protecting me from the horrors of hell that I have deserved, not once, but a thousand times. O Lord, eternity will hardly suffice for me to give due praise to Your unfathomable mercy and Your compassion for me.

In defense of John Leary

There is a controversial locution of John Leary that has made him unpopular. He got a message saying that Pope Benedict XVI would be an antipope. There have been plenty of antipopes in the Church’s history so it is not out of the question. Also, Maria Valtorta received a message that the antichrist would be aided by the false prophet who would be “a former star in my army”. That is why his bishop is throwing him under the bus but his messages are not condemned and he is cooperative with the Church who allows him to do his ministry and print his messages.

The first search result for John Leary on Google is an article by a layperson named Ronald Conte who has no idea what he’s talking about. He tries to condemn John by making nine points against him.

First he says that the faithful will have to suffer the tribulation and that no one will be taken away to refuges. That is wrong. Jesus said in Matthew 24 “There will be two people grinding at the mill, one taken another one left. There will be two people in a bed, one will be taken the other one left.” Mother Angelica planned from the beginning for her convent in Alabama which is hundreds of acres to be an end time refuge. Also, the Blue Army Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Washington, New Jersey is planned to be an end time refuge. There are many refuges that exist right now.

John wrote in his FAQ section that people would be in caves like the one the Holy Family stayed in on their flight to Egypt from the slaughter of the innocents. Ronald Conte says that Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich never said Jesus did that. Even if she didn’t that doesn’t mean she knows everything but Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich did explicitly say that Jesus stayed in a cave on His way to Egypt in “The Dolorous Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ”. Saint Dismas, the penitent thief, was cured of leprosy by bathing and the water that had been used to wash the infant Jesus because it was providentially his family who lived there.

Second he says that the faithful will not be marked with the sign of the cross on their foreheads. It says in Revelation 7 that they will. Then he says that that people will be sealed in the 2030s and provides no citation for that belief. Later in the same article at point 8 he says the antichrist will come in the 24th century again with no citation for that belief. Why would people be sealed 400 years before the antichrist’s coming?

Third he says that Jesus doesn’t talk about the things of the world as if he is a distant God. Our God is intimate and that’s wrong.

Fourth he says there is no such thing as an implantable microchip that can control your mind. Do a google search. There is. He says it would violate free will but Jesus will warn everyone not to take one in the warning so those who take it will take it in full knowledge with free will.

Fifth, sixth and seventh he says that Jesus doesn’t show certainty about future events by saying things could happen and not that they will. That is because people can pray against these disasters from the time of the message to the time of it’s occurrence. Pope John Paul II was prophesied in Fatima to be killed but he wasn’t because of the prayers and fasting of the people. Some of the ten secrets of Medjugorje have been mitigated by penance. Also, Jesus told John Leary with certainty that Russia certainly would expand it’s borders past Ukraine.

Eighth he says there is no one world order conspiracy and there is.

Ninth is his problem with the idea of Pope Benedict XVI being an antipope which I already mentioned. He also says here “The UN has very little power.”

The other thing is that John’s bishop has a problem with the thousand year peace prophesied in the book of revelation being taken literally to mean 1,000 earth years. The Lord Himself answered that in a message on March 27, 1997, “The leaders of My Church have made binding interpretations of ‘millenarianism’ which I wish you to acknowledge under obedience to My Magisterium. They have not interpreted one thousand years to be taken literally. I will not reign then in My Body. Only spiritually will I be present.”

Maria Esperanza who is a servant of God and whose revelations of God are church approved said John Leary is a true prophet and in his 20 years of messages he has not contradicted the catechism and shown secret knowledge of many things beyond him with incredible consistency. The messages themselves are proof of their authenticity and those who choose not to believe just don’t want to accept the challenge to repent and prepare.
