The Eternal Mercy of God

"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."

-From the Diary of St. Faustina

Hi Lisa,

Thanks for the good comment you left on my post about religious life. It's true that the numbers of vocations in the 50's were higher than normal. I remember that a friend I had before I entered, who was a little older than me and graduated from high school in either the late 50's or early 60's, said that about one-third of her high school classmates entered either the seminary or religious life after graduating! That was quite remarkable. It would be an interesting sociological study to see what the reasons for that were. Before Vatican II, the Catholic "ghetto," so to speak, was more tightly knit than now, so that was probably a factor.
