Señor, ten piedad.

Ten piedad de nosotros y el mundo entero.

Ten piedad de A Latina’s Fiat.

Ten piedad de Jessica.

Ten piedad de mi.

Señor, ten piedad.

——————————————

I have been told that they wish to see the world as I see it; through rose-colored glasses.

The reality is that the world (even through my eyes) isn’t seen with rose-colored glasses.

The reality is that the world hurts. 

The reality is that I hurt.

So no, I do not see the world through rose-colored glasses.

I have been hurt.

I have been lied to.

I have been betrayed.

I have been bullied.

I have been used.

I have been humiliated.

I have been lonely.

I have been mistreated.

I have been cheated on.

I have been misinterpreted.

I have been judged.

I have been teased.

I have been taken advantage of.

I have been disappointed.

So no, I do not see the world through rose-colored glasses.

My world isn’t perfect.

My life isn’t perfect.

I am not perfect.

…NOT EVEN CLOSE

But…

MY GOD IS PERFECT.

I didn’t always believe He was with me.

As a matter a fact, I still have to constantly remind myself and choose to believe that He is always with me. Sometimes I feel like I probably shove him into my closet or make Him stand in the corner away from me because I am upset and I choose to stay upset rather than allow Him to come comfort me. I have chosen time and time again to not allow Him to help me carry my pain, my loneliness, my mess…why? Because of my pride.

I can do it by myself.

Just leave me.

I’ve got it, don’t worry.

But you know what?

I don’t have it.

I can’t do it.

I don’t want to be left alone.

So no, I do not see the world through rose-colored glasses.

Jesus, have mercy on me a sinner.

Jesus, come to my rescue.

Jesus, please help me.

MISERICORDIA //

Derived from the two words miserere (“pity” or “misery”) and cor (“heart”)

When we ask for God’s mercy, we are essentially asking him to relieve us of a heart that is in misery. And our hearts can be in a state of misery not just from sin, but from the deep hurt caused by a broken relationship with a family member, from the suffering of infertility, from the pain of a physical or mental illness, from losing a job, from being betrayed or abandoned, from spiritual or physical poverty, and so on.

So idk about you but as for me..I NEED MERCY. (& lots of it)

That is why I must rely heavily on the source of MERCY..

& where is that source of mercy?

“Oh Sangre y Agua que brotaste del Corazón de Jesús, como una Fuente de Misericordia para nosotros, en Ti confío” (Diario, 84).

The heart of Jesus is the source of mercy. It is literally the fount where the Blood and Water gushed forth and became the epicenter of mercy for us.

I love this opening prayer from the Chaplet:

“You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us. “

Like yes, Jesus, yes! I need that ocean of mercy poured out on my broken self.

Why am I telling you all of this you may ask, well it’s because I want to make sure you know that there is literally a place we can go to with all our mess, all our pain, all our anger, all our let downs….The Heart of Jesus…The Fount of Life…The Divine Mercy.

I will repeat it again, the word MISERICORDIA is derived from the two words miserere (“pity” or “misery”) and cor (“heart”). Therefore, when we are asking for mercy we are asking Jesus to come heal, come console, come love this heart of ours that is in misery! Like yes Lord! Please Lord! Come into my broken heart! Have Mercy on me! 

This Sunday we are celebrating the feast of Divine Mercy! 

I want to challenge you to invite Jesus to have mercy on your heart that is in misery.

Let us ask our divine physician to come to our rescue, and to envelop us in His endless ocean of mercy.

"Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion — inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself."

Jesus, I trust in you!

Jesus, I trust in you!

Jesus, I trust in you!

But help me to trust you MORE.

God loves you and so do I,

-Jessica
