Our Lord Speaks:
“When you go to Confession, to this fountain of mercy, the blood and water which came forth from My heart always flows down upon your soul (Diary 1602)... In the tribunal of mercy [The Sacrament of Reconciliation]... the greatest miracles take place and are incessantly repeated (Diary 1448)... Here the misery of the soul meets the God of mercy (Diary 1602)... Come with faith to the feet of My representative (Diary 1448)... I, Myself, am waiting there for you. I am only hidden by the priest... I, Myself, act in your soul (Diary 1602)... Make your confession before Me. The person of the priest is, for Me, only a screen. Never analyze what sort of a priest it is that I am making use of; open your soul in confession as you would to Me, and I will fill it with My light” (Diary 1725).
Our Lord Speaks:
“Were a soul like a decaying corpse, so that from a human standpoint, there would be no hope of restoration and everything would already be lost. It is not so with God. The miracle of Divine Mercy restores that soul in full... From this fountain of mercy, souls draw graces solely with the vessel of trust. If their trust is great, there is no limit to My generosity” (Diary 1448).
The Miracle of Mercy, the Sacrament of Reconciliation
When we sin, we start pulling away from grace. First with venial sins, we slowly move away from our Baptismal promise, and then mortal sins put a total separation, a wall between us and our Redeemer. We start to tell the Lord, “It’s my will now, not yours.” But, through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, we renew our Baptismal vows. We once again proclaim Christ, Lord of our Life and not Satan. We open up the door we closed on Him and tell Him we would like a personal relationship with Him.
The Confessor is a Physician of the Soul
How can a doctor prescribe a suitable remedy if he does not know the nature of the sickness? Never will he be able to do so. If you do not reveal to the confessor the misery of your soul (your sins), how can he help you? Jesus gives us free will and if we want to keep our sins, He respects our wishes.
Open yourself fully in the Confessional
This comes through patience and kindness of the priest. A doctor cannot heal you if you won’t tell him where it hurts. Hold nothing back in the Confessional. How can a doctor prescribe a suitable remedy if he does not know the nature of the sickness?
