“Awake, sleeper, I have not made you to be held a prisoner in the underworld. Arise from the dead; I am the life of the dead. Arise, O man, work of my hands, arise, you who were fashioned in my image. Rise, let us go hence; for you in me and I in you, together we are one undivided person.”

Say it over and over again until you get it!
Divine Mercy has re-established order. Absorbs sin for us when we are in authentic conversation with God.
We can only be cleansed with the help of God, our creator, the one who has made us, our father, our maker. When Jesus came he sealed with his flesh, the new covenant that God had made with humanity by circumcising, piercing his heart. “Circumcise your hearts, therefore, and be no longer stiff-necked” (Deuteronomy 10: 16) When we join with the eternal spiritual wonder, we become one with pure potentiality.
When we receive the Eucharist–the Body and Blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ–we receive the Sacred Heart pierced (circumcised) for us. This new heart is joined to our hearts, transforming them and making it possible for us to live the new covenant of love that Jesus sealed in his flesh. With circumcised hearts and one with the Heart of Jesus, we can now love God and neighbor as Jesus did.
Water (Baptism) takes away sin. Blood (Eucharist) gives a new heart.
