Do Not Despair

This is the closing prayer of the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy: 
Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion – inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.
 
Jesus, King of Mercy, we trust in You! 
I read an article in the newspaper the other day about St. Padre Pio.  The author’s brother and sister-in-law were trying to have a baby for five years, but with no success.  In 1965 they went to Italy to see the saint.  The short story here is that the saint said to the sister-in-law that one year from now, she would have a son.  True enough, a child was born to them the following year, and they named him Pio.  The boy is now 43 years old and is a father himself to two children.  This in itself was a miracle.  What was equally amazing was that it was a known fact that St. Padre Pio could only communicate in Italian, yet the author’s sister-in-law was able to speak to him in English.  It was the saint’s guardian angel that literally translated the conversation that took place – another miracle in itself! 
 
This story serves to remind us that angels do exist, and they are our friends who are here to help us in this world.  More importantly, this reminds us that there is a God Who does exist and Who created and is in charge of everything! 
 
God is real!  His treasury of compassion is inexhaustible for all His creatures.  We should NOT despair because God is in charge of our lives, looking out for us in His way and in His time, ultimately giving us what is in our best interest. 
 
If we really believed in God, then we should completely trust that He will take care of all our needs in this world.  We have every reason to hope and trust in Him that He will take care of us in this valley of tears.
 
Mother Mary, St. Padre Pio, and St. Faustina, pray for us!  Jesus, King of Mercy, we trust in You!
