Beyond our Understanding (be Patient)

The concept of mercy is often simplified and associated with <<obtaining something that, as we think, would make us happy here and now -- namely in this life.>>

The Divine Mercy, however, seems to operate differently: I think that this Phenomenon can't be appreciated until a human being  is totally opened to  (and grateful for) whatever God the Father may intend for them....
Amid all the sufferings we should be aware that Our Lord wants to see us,  His beloved and happy children, in Heaven someday. Only this counts.

St. Bernadette, the patron Saint of this day, had known this from the time of her childhood, and that's why later -- when the Grace came -- she could listen, without any fear or resentment, to the words of wisdom
that the Mother of Mercy, Mary  privileged her with:

"I don't promise to make you happy in this world but in the other."

Tomasz, Racibórz
