1274 I experience great torments of soul when I see God offended.

Today I recognized that mortal sins were being committed not far from our door. It was evening. I prayed earnestly in the chapel, (30) and then I went to scourge myself. When I knelt down to pray, however, the Lord allowed me to experience how a soul rejected by God suffers. It seems to me that my heart was torn to pieces, and at the same time I understood how much such a soul wounds the most merciful Heart of Jesus. The poor creature does not want to accept God‟s mercy. The more God has pursued a soul with His mercy, the more just will He be towards it.
1275 My Secretary, write that I am more generous toward sinners than toward the just. It was for their sake that I came down from heaven; it was for their sake that My 288 Blood was spilled. Let them not fear to approach Me; they are most in need of My mercy.
