“My daughter, tell all people that I am Love and Mercy Itself. When a soul approaches me with trust, I fill it with such an abundance of graces that it cannot contain them within itself, but radiates them to other souls.” (Diary 1074)
Since my conversion, a painfully quiet, shy person has turned into someone who has plenty to say because my trust is in the Lord and not myself. He took the worst sin of my life, and brought good out of it. He showed me through my horrific sin of abortion, the immense love and mercy He has, for not only me, but for all sinners. What a gift for someone who deserves nothing but condemnation!
It is because of this experience of this limitless mercy shown to me in the face of such a terrible sin, that I was able to repent. To look at it before then would have been impossible. It was just too horrific. I did not repent before His Mercy; I repented BECAUSE of His mercy.
“When faced with the gravity of (Adam and Eve’s) sin, God responds with the fullness of mercy,” “Mercy will always be greater than any sin, and no one can place limits on the love of God who is ever ready to forgive.” Pope Francis (announcement of Year of Mercy, St Peters Basilica March 13, 2015)
