Father Glenn Sudano, CFR, talks about another "secretary" of mercy whose name begins with an "F."

Father Glenn was among the many speakers at the 10th annual Divine Mercy Conference at Cardinal Spellman High School, in Bronx, New York, on March 21.

He spoke of the evidence everywhere of God's mercy. Without recognizing it, "we become less human," he said.

He spoke about the ways in which Jesus makes us see double and the ways in which He is lavish and wasteful.

(Oh, and he also spoke about the whereabouts of Chef Boyardee.)

I totally agree with the CFR friar's comment that "God cannot NOT love", because He loves us infinitely, totally, faithfully, even when we sin, he loves us but hates the sin. I was thinking this the other day when I came across a passage in the Diary of St. Faustina (actually I saw it quoted in the prayerbook with it, and now I found it online in the Mercy Minutes with Jesus from your website)... I felt like the way Sr. Faustina worded it didn't sound quite theologically correct... I don't think she meant it the way it sounds, because she absolutely was trying to promote God as being Love & Mercy itself. I'm surprised it wasn't edited out before it was published, after all, even the holiest saints can write things that aren't 100% accurate. What do others think?

"Beg for Mercy
Thrice Holy God

Write: I am Thrice Holy, and I detest the smallest sin. I cannot love a soul which is stained with sin; but when it repents, there is no limit to My generosity toward it. My mercy embraces and justifies it. With My mercy, I pursue sinners along all their paths, and My Heart rejoices when they return to Me. I forget the bitterness with which they fed My Heart and rejoice at their return" (Diary, 1728).

"My Prayer Response:
O Thrice Holy God, You detest even the smallest sin in souls. Hear my plea for Your mercy on us sinners on earth and those in purgatory. Cleanse us as we repent and return to You. May our return give You joy."

I mean the rest of her quote is right on, about God embracing the sinner who repents. But I believe that it's BECAUSE God loves us so much that we WANT to repent, otherwise why would we even try to return to Him?? If He hadn't loved us through it all, we wouldn't be spurred on to trust Him. But as it is, He loves us no matter what, and this is what makes us want to change, to please Him more, and abide by the Standard of Christ even more fervently than ever.

ah, maybe she's telling us that it's not until we repent that the forgiveness process can begin? If forgiveness/mercy is being equated with love, as another word for it? After all, God is always ready to forgive, His Heart is full of mercy, it's a fountain of grace and mercy! We just have to open up to this and let it work in our hearts so that we make the repentance a reality. But as good parents will tell their kids, they love them unconditionally, and God loves His children unconditionally... but to live peacefully under a parents' roof the kids have to be respectful of good rules, and to be happy in the House of God we have to be reverent towards the Commandments/Beatitudes/Divine Law. When we're lovingly guided and shown a better way, then this is all part of Love, which is neverending when we're talking about God's Love!
