In this new age of Divine Mercy, wherein God is offering us the "New and Divine Holiness" referred to by Pope John Paul II, I often ask myself the eternal question, "why?" Why would Jesus offer us union with the Godhead? And why would He now be offering us a "New State of Mystical Union" reserved for our times?
Jesus gives us an answer to this question in St. Faustina's Diary. The answer is that it is because of His Divine Mercy. Jesus says: "Know my daughter, that between Me and You there is a bottomless abyss, an abyss which separates the Creator from the creature. But the abyss is filled with My mercy. I raise you up to myself, not that I have need of you, but it is solely out of mercy that I grant you the grace of union with Myself." (p. 559) And it seems to me that it is solely out of His Mercy that He now offers us this "New State of Mystical Union."

I have been very busy writing my second book. As soon as I finish it next year I hope to resume regular postings on this blog.

However, this thought sequence could go on for awhile before I actually become aware that this has happened and that I need to use the sacred word. Then if I fail to use the sacred word or whatever it is that I do to ignore the boat, I am allowing myself to be distracted. The key point for me is that, the fact that I got hooked on some special thought and my mind wandered in that direction, is not a distraction even though it lasts for a few minutes. It is only a distraction if, when I realize what has happened I linger on the thought, (perhaps it so enticing or seems so important), instead of immediately invoking my sacred word.
