Letters to the Marian Helpers

Father Jan, because this is how the director of the Apostolate of Divine Mercy is called each time (because of the founder of the Apostolate, Rev. Jan Przybysz, MIC), who is Rev. Dr Lukasz Mazurek, MIC, writes letters to all members of the Apostolate several times throughout the year.

You can read the content of the latest letter here. If you want to belong to the Apostolate of Divine Mercy through the Association of Marian Helpers, write or call us. We are waiting for YOU with joy!

Letter for July & August 2022

 

 

Dear Marian Helpers! Apostles of Divine Mercy!

 

Each of us, as a free, intelligent person who reflects on a daily basis, reaches a point in his history where he must once again ask himself about the purpose, meaning and value of his life and vocation. Daily efforts often do not make it easier for us to reflect more deeply on our lives, which is why we also need moments of rest, respite from our current activities. All this to return with new strength and enthusiasm to all matters important to us that shape our lives. That is why the upcoming vacation time is so important. It is also a moment of wonder at the beauty of God’s creation, the author of which is God himself!

 

The whole world around us, the Good God created just for us, so it is worth taking care of this image of God in us and around us. St. Sister Faustina writes very beautifully in the Diary about her experiences in 1930, when she visited one of the religious houses of her Congregation:

 

“When I was at Kiekrz to replace one of the sisters for a short time, I went across the garden one afternoon and stopped on the shore of the lake; I stood there for a long time, contemplating my surroundings. Suddenly, I saw the Lord Jesus near me, and He graciously said to me, All this I created for you, My spouse; and know that all this beauty is nothing compared to what I have prepared for you in eternity. My soul was inundated with such consolation that I stayed there until evening, and it seemed to me like a brief moment. That was my free day, set apart for a one-day retreat, so I was quite free to devote myself to prayer. Oh, how the infinitely good God pursues us with His goodness! It often happens that the Lord grants me the greatest graces when I do not at all expect them” (Diary, 158).

 

Indeed, God “is infinitely good”, as the Apostle of Divine Mercy, dear to our hearts, writes. It is also a guideline for us not to forget what is fundamental in these difficult times. God, who is always on the side of man, only wants good for each of us, even as St. Sr. Faustina “pursues us with her goodness”! Let us allow ourselves to be caught, let us give ourselves a chance to find ourselves in His tender fatherly hands. This is the place where we can feel safe, loved, desired and, what’s more, always accepted! This is the Merciful Heart of God that I mentioned to you, Dear Marian Helpers, in the previous Letter of this year. The Merciful Heart of God, which, as Sister Faustina also wrote, “can do anything” (Diary, 228), and which, pierced on the Cross, shows us how high a price God paid so that we could be free today. Therefore, in July, I encourage you to pray the Litany of the Precious Blood of Christ, which we will also pray for your intentions, for which we are waiting and which we invite you to send on the attached form.

 

Therefore, let us not be afraid to approach God’s Heart in this coming time, remembering that on our path of faith we have a special guardian – the Blessed Virgin Mary, whom we ask for intercession, especially before the feast of her Assumption. Therefore, along with this letter, I also send you heartfelt greetings and prayers that you can use during the daily meeting with God. You can send all your prayer intentions, Dear Marian Helpers, both for July and August using the attached forms – just send them back to us in the enclosed envelope. I also encourage you to buy Lottery tickets – Assumption Draw, from which all income is allocated to the work of proclaiming the message of Divine Mercy to the world.

 

Dear Apostles of Divine Mercy, thank you for your commitment to date in the mission of proclaiming the Divine Mercy to the world and wishing you good meetings of God in these summer months, I invite you to the daily prayer that will be in our chapel continuously from Monday to Friday from 2:30 pm (more information on our website and social profiles: www.divinemercyapostolate.co.uk). However, after the holidays, I invite you to undertake our mission with renewed strength and enthusiasm.

 

The world today needs you and your testimony of real Christian love. Let us not be afraid to discover God’s plans and calls, because according to the tasks assigned to us by Providence, we receive the necessary graces to fulfill them. Let us ask the Merciful Savior for a lot, He is really generous, which he reminds us of in Sister Faustina’s Diary: “Souls with boundless trust are a great consolation for me, because in such souls I pour all the treasures of my graces. I am glad that they are asking a lot, because My desire is to give a lot, a lot. On the other hand, I am sad when souls ask for little, they tighten their hearts”(Diary, 1578).

 

With gratitude, pleading for mercy for all of us:

 

Jesus, I trust in YOU!

Yours Fr. Lukasz Mazurek, MIC
