In short, mercy expresses God's own goodness and love.”  Cardinal Walter Kasper

On one occasion, I heard these words: My daughter, 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. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy.

 “All at once I saw a large book which stands before the throne [of God], and it was given to me to read. The book was written in blood. Still, I could not read anything but the name, Jesus. Then I heard a voice, which said to me, Your hour has not yet come. Then the book was taken away from me, and I heard these words: You will bear witness to My infinite mercy. In this book are written the names of the souls that have glorified My mercy. I was overwhelmed with joy at the sight of such great goodness of God.” (Diary 689)
