Our Lord tells us through St. Faustina, "I demand from you deeds of mercy which are to arise out of love for Me" (Diary of St. Faustina, 742).
Do you have a Deed of Mercy to share — acts of love, big or small, things you've seen others do, things you've done? Send it to us!
An Accident Draws Us Closer
How is this for being merciful to our neighbors: The elderly woman next door to us had fallen recently and fractured her hip. We all heard the ambulance come, and we gathered outside to see what was going on. "I'm alright. I'm alright," she told us, as the medical people brought her into the ambulance. One of our neighbors organized an effort to give her a great homecoming a few days later. We all cooked food. We brought her some books she could read during her recovery. We all have grown closer to each other as a consequence. Christ told us through St. Faustina to spread mercy to our neighbors. This is what happened — literally. What makes me so happy is that, despite all the troubles in the world, I think for most of us our natural inclination is to love and serve one another. Praised be the merciful Lord!
