Mercy Monday: Take Courage and Receive from the Lord!

Happy Monday!
I have to get studying up on Browning (I'm in my Victorian Period literature class), so I'll just leave the Divine Mercy post here. God bless!

“When a soul loves God sincerely, it ought not to fear anything in the spiritual life. Let it subject itself to the action of grace, and let it not impose any restraints on itself in communing with the Lord.” (Notebook 1, Section 292)

“Once the Lord said to me, Act like a beggar who does not back away when he gets more alms [than he asked for], but offers thanks the more fervently. You too, should not back away and say that you are not worthy of receiving greater graces when I give them to you. I know you are unworthy, but rejoice all the more and take as many treasures from My Heart as you can carry, for then you will please Me more. And I will tell you one more thing—take these graces not only for yourself, but also for others; that is, encourage the souls with whom you come in contact to trust in My infinite mercy. Oh, how I love those souls who have complete confidence in Me—I will do everything for them. (Notebook 1, Section 294).
