Our Lord told Blessed Faustina, " Proclaim that mercy is the greatest attribute of God. All the works of My hands are crowned with mercy." (Divine Mercy in my soul) (301) " ….when a soul sees and realizes the gravity of its sins, when the whole abyss of the misery into which it is immersed itself is displayed before its eyes, let it not despair, but with a trust let it throw itself into the arms of My mercy, as a child into the arms of its beloved mother. These souls have a right of priority to My compassionate Heart, they have first access to My mercy. Tell them that no soul that has called upon My mercy has been disappointed or brought to shame. I delight particularly in a soul which has placed its trust in My goodness. (Divine Mercy in my soul) (1541)
