“Today bring to Me the Souls who have become Lukewarm, and immerse them in the abyss of My mercy. These souls wound My Heart most painfully. My soul suffered the most dreadful loathing in the Garden of Olives because of lukewarm souls. They were the reason I cried out: ‘Father, take this cup away from Me, if it be Your will.’ For them, the last hope of salvation is to run to My mercy.”
Most compassionate Jesus, You are Compassion Itself. I bring lukewarm souls into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart. In this fire of Your pure love, let these tepid souls who, like corpses, filled You with such deep loathing, be once again set aflame. O Most Compassionate Jesus, exercise the omnipotence of Your mercy and draw them into the very ardor of Your love, and bestow upon them the gift of holy love, for nothing is beyond Your power.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon lukewarm souls who are nonetheless enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Father of Mercy, I beg You by the bitter Passion of Your Son and by His three-hour agony on the Cross: Let them, too, glorify the abyss of Your mercy. Amen.
This is the most difficult one to pray as we look inwards to ourselves. Since generally speaking we are all lukewarm at times, sometimes we burn for the faith but often times we focus more on the world around us. This is a hard things to remind us about a week after we all were being pious and serious about our faith during the season of Lent. With the fasting and the abstaining from meat along with whatever else we might have “given up” for Lent, but how many of us have already had/ done what they gave up for Lent sure the obligation is over but just because it’s not Lent isn’t an excuse for falling back to the person we were before Lent began.
