Only the present moment is precious to me. As the future may never enter my soul at all.
It is no longer in my power,
To change, correct, or add to the past;
For neither sages nor prophets could do that.
And so what the past has embraced I must entrust to God.
O present moment you belong to me, whole and entire. I desire to use You as best I can
Although I am weak and small,
You grant me the grace of your omnipotence.
And so trusting in Your Mercy,
I walk through life like a little child. Offering you each day this heart Burning with love for your greater glory.
Excerpt from the Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska “Divine Mercy in My Soul”
