I am reading a book for my church group, and in the book Jesus is saying to St. Faustina the following:

"During this hour, I will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of me in virtue of my passion."

When this sentence is taken literally, is it equivalent to:

"During this hour, I will grant everything to the soul that makes a request of me in virtue of my passion"?

PS: I am not asking for any theological interpretation, I am just asking for the literal interpretation. Simple "yes" or "no" would be sufficient for an answer.

Thank you,

Yes - although I'd go with 'anything' rather than 'everything'.

  • As @andyb noted, there is a difference between granting whatever is asked for (but only that), versus granting everything when (only) something is asked. – Nonnal Nov 4 '15 at 2:45
