On awaking keep your heart under control, by the remembrance of God, your Love, your only God. When God inspires you with a sentiment of love, stop and taste it, as the bee sips the honey… Ah! when I reflect that my soul is the temple of God, that God dwells in me, how my heart rejoices! All affliction appears to me sweet and light…What a fruitful source of meditation!
Giving Tuesday - Title Only
Do not consider the magnitude of your trials; contemplate rather Jesus, your crucified Love, the King of sorrows and of anguish. If you do this, all your sufferings will be flavored with sweetness. Lift up your heart. Fix your heart on God.
Happy he who suffers without being attached to his suffering, desiring only to die to himself, in order to love yet more Him Who inflicts the wound of love! I give you this lesson from the foot of the cross, but it is in prayer that you will understand it.
Happy the heart that keeps itself on the cross, in the arms of the Well-Beloved, and that burns only with divine love! Happier the one that suffers without joy, and is thus transformed into Christ!
Oh, how deliciously these things taste to the spiritual palate, if they be taken in pure faith and holy love, in silence and with confidence! By the cross God perfects the loving soul that offers Him a fervent and generous heart.
In times of aridity arouse your spirit gently, by acts of love; then rest in the will of God…Adieu, my daughter; may Jesus bless you, and inflame you with divine love.
Hold yourself interiorly on the bosom of God in the passive way this is the surest means of losing yourself in God passing however continually through the Gate divine which is Jesus Christ crucified making His sufferings yours Love teaches all for the Passion with its bitter sorrows is the work of infinite love.
