|From the “Diary” of St. Faustina|
|27 August||Contemplation in everyday life|
In the beginning, God lets himself be known as Holiness, Justice, Goodness — that is to say, Mercy. The soul does not come to know this all at once, but piecemeal, in flashes; that is to say, when God draws near. And this does not last for long, because the soul could not bear such light. (…) This light which has touched the soul is alive within it, and nothing can either quench or diminish it. This flash of the knowledge of God draws the soul and enkindles its love for Him (Diary 95).
