Works of Mercy

" whatever is within your power to spread devotion to My mercy. I will make up for what you lack. Tell aching mankind to embrace My merciful Heart, and I will fill it with peace (...) 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. Souls who spread the honour of My mercy I shield throughout their entire lives as a tender mother shields her infant..." (Diary, 1074-75).

"To priests who proclaim and extol My mercy, I will give wondrous power; I will anoint their words and touch the hearts of those to whom they speak" (Diary, 1521).

"You are to show mercy to your neighbours always and everywhere. You must not shrink from this or try to excuse or absolve from it. I am giving you three ways of exercising mercy toward your neighbour:

the first - by deed
the second - by word
the third - by prayer.

In these three degrees is contained the fullness of mercy, and it is an unquestionable proof of love for Me. By this means a soul glorifies and pays reverence to My mercy" (Diary, 742).
