"When you go to Confession, to this Fountain of my Mercy, the Blood and Water which came forth from My Heart always flows down upon your soul.... Every time you go to Confession, immerse yourself entirely in My Mercy with great trust, so that I may pour the bounty of My grace upon your soul. When you approach the Confessional, know this, that I Myself am waiting there for you. I am only hidden by the priest, but I Myself act in your soul. Here the misery of the soul meets the God of Mercy."
-Our Lord to Saint Faustina (Diary 1602)
"Make your Confession before Me. The person of the priest is...only a screen. Never analyze what sort of a priest that I am making use of; open your soul in Confession to Me, and I will fill it with My light."
- Our Lord to Saint Faustina (Diary 1725)
