Fated to Love You
In the midst of my preparation for the conditional cash transfer (I/2014) next week, my twinnie asked me to make birthday card for her long-lasting-girl-crush.
So, I came up with this idea.
But then, she told me it looked like a memorial picture (-____-“)
So, I redesigned it with a totally new concept. Now, it looks more like a kindergarten drawing. XP
Long time ago someone told me the formula of prosocial behavior:
1/2=0.5, means if we give 1 but we expect 2 in return, we will get no more than a half of what we give.
1/1=1, means if we give 1 and expect the equal return, we may gain as much as we’ve spent.
1/0= ~, means if we give 1 and expect nothing in return, we can obtain infinite return.
It’s proven to be true, at least for me.
On the first Sunday after Easter, we celebrate the Feast of Divine Mercy. Thanks to Saint Faustina who had let us know about the biggest promise of Grace from Jesus Christ. We welcomed the feast by having Novena of Divine Mercy for a week starting from Good Friday. The novena was done every day at 3 pm as a homage for the time of His death.
As told in today’s mass, His Mercy is like a deep unfathomable ocean. It receives all kinds of water that flows into it despite its dirt. After it evaporates and condenses into cloud, it will be poured down on earth as a pure water.
I know that it’s very hard to pass through His Justice door. So, knowing that He is opening up the door of Mercy is such a joyful news for us human.
“I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain the complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. On that day all the divine floodgates through which grace flow are opened. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet.” (Jesus’ words, taken from St. Faustina’s Diary 699)
