How to Rest in the Heart of Jesus
"My daughter, faithfully live up to
the words which I speak to you. Do not value any external thing
too highly, even if it were to seem very precious to you. Let go
of yourself, and abide with Me continually. Entrust everything
to Me and do nothing on your own, and you will always have great
freedom of spirit. No circumstances or events will ever be able
to upset you. Set little store on what people say. Let everyone
judge you as they like. Do not make excuses for yourself, it
will do you no harm. Give away everything at the first sign of a
demand, even if they were the most necessary things. Do not ask
for anything without consulting Me. Allow them to take away even
what is due you – respect, your good name – let your spirit rise
above all that. And so, set free from everything, rest close to
My Heart, not allowing your peace to be disturbed by anything.
My pupil, consider (62) the words which I have spoken to you"
"Daughter, I need
sacrifice lovingly accomplished, because that alone has meaning
for Me. Enormous indeed are the debts of the world which are due
to Me; pure souls can pay them by their sacrifice, exercising
mercy in spirit" (Dia1316).
soul does not exercise mercy somehow or other, it will not
obtain My mercy on the day of judgment. Oh, if only souls knew
how to gather eternal treasure for themselves, they would not be
judged, for they would forestall My judgment with their mercy" (Diary,
"O soul steeped in darkness,
do not despair. All is not yet lost. Come and confide in your
God, who is love and mercy...My child, listen to the voice of
your merciful Father" (Diary, 1486).
daughter, know that My Heart is mercy itself. From this sea of
mercy, graces flow out upon the whole world. No soul that has
approached Me has ever gone away unconsoled. All misery gets
buried in the depths of My mercy, and every saving and
sanctifying grace flows from this fountain..." (Diary,
"My Heart rejoices in this
title of Mercy. Proclaim that mercy is the greatest attribute of
God. All the works of My hands are crowned with mercy" (Diary,
is the hour of great mercy for the whole world. I will allow you
to enter into My mortal sorrow. In this hour, I will refuse
nothing to the soul that makes a request of me in virtue of My
Passion" (Diary, 1320).
three o’clock, implore My mercy, especially for sinners; and, if
only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in My Passion,
particularly in My abandonment at the moment of agony" (Diary,
"Were a soul like a decaying
corpse so that from a human standpoint, there would be no [hope
of] restoration and everything would already be lost, it is not
so with God. The miracle of Divine Mercy restores that soul in
full. Oh, how miserable are those who do not take advantage of
the miracle of God’s mercy! You will call out in vain, but it
will be too late" (Diary, 1448).
two rays denote Blood and Water. The pale ray stands for the
Water which makes souls righteous. The red ray stands for the
Blood which is the life of souls...These two rays issued forth
from the very depths of My tender mercy when My agonized Heart
was opened by a lance on the Cross. These rays shield souls from
the wrath of My Father. Happy is the one who will dwell in their
shelter, for the just hand of God shall not lay hold of him"
"Mankind will not have peace
until it turns with trust to My mercy. Oh, how much I am hurt by
a soul’s distrust! Such a soul professes that I am Holy and Just,
but does not believe that I am Mercy and does not trust in My
Goodness. Even the devils glorify My Justice but do not believe
in My Goodness" (Diary, 300).
very much I desire the salvation of souls! My dearest secretary,
write that I want to pour out My divine life into human souls
and sanctify them, if only they were willing to accept My grace.
The greatest sinners would achieve great sanctity, if only they
would trust in My mercy. The very inner depths of My being are
filled to overflowing with mercy, and it is being poured out
upon all I have created. My delight is to act in a human soul
and to fill it with My mercy (133) and to justify it. My kingdom
on earth is My life in the human soul"
unceasingly the chaplet that I have taught you. Whoever will
recite it will receive great mercy at the hour of death. Priests
will recommend it to sinners as their last hope of salvation.
Even if there were a sinner most hardened, if he were to recite
this chaplet only once, he would receive grace from My infinite
mercy. I desire that the whole world know My infinite mercy. I
desire to grant unimaginable graces to those souls who trust in
"The souls that say this
chaplet will be embraced by My mercy during their lifetime and
especially at the hour of their death" (Diary, 754).
"Through the chaplet you will
obtain everything, if what you ask for is compatible with My
will" (Diary, 1731).
what great graces I will grant to souls who say this chaplet;
the very depths of My tender mercy are stirred for the sake of
those who say the chaplet. Write down these words, My daughter.
Speak to the world about My mercy; let all mankind recognize My
unfathomable mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it
will come (230) the day of justice. While there is still time,
let them have recourse to the fount of My mercy; let them profit
from the Blood and Water which gushed forth for them"
"My mercy is greater than
your sins and those of the entire world. Who can measure the
extent of my goodness? For you I descended from heaven to earth;
for you I allowed myself to be nailed to the cross; for you I
let my Sacred Heart be pierced with a lance, thus opening wide
the source of mercy for you. Come, then, with trust to draw
graces from this fountain. I never reject a contrite heart. Your
misery has disappeared in the depths of My mercy" (Diary, 1485).
will proclaim My great mercy. I shall protect them Myself at the
hour of death, as My own glory. And even if the sins of souls
were as dark as night, when the sinner turns to My mercy, he
gives Me the greatest praise and is the glory of My Passion.
When a soul extols My goodness, Satan trembles before it and
flees to the very bottom of hell" (Diary, 378).
"My Heart overflows with great mercy for souls,
and especially for poor sinners. If only they could understand
that I am the best of Fathers to them and that it is for them
that the Blood and Water flowed from My Heart as from a fount
overflowing with mercy. For them I dwell in the tabernacle as
King of Mercy. I desire to bestow My graces upon souls, but they
do not want to accept them. You, at least, come to Me as often
as possible and take these graces they do not want to accept. In
this way you will console My Heart..." (Diary, 367).
"From all My wounds, like
from streams, mercy flows for souls, but the wound in My Heart
is the fountain of unfathomable mercy. From this fountain spring
all graces for souls. The flames of compassion burn Me. I desire
greatly to pour them out upon souls" (Diary, 1190).
"I desire to unite Myself
with human souls; My great delight is to unite Myself with souls
Know, My daughter, that when I come to a human heart in Holy
Communion, My hands are full of all kinds of graces which I want
to give to the soul. But souls do not even pay any attention to
Me; they leave Me to Myself and busy themselves with other
things. Oh, how sad I am that souls do not recognize Love! They
treat Me as a dead object" (Diary, 1385).
sinners knew My mercy, they would not perish in such great
numbers. Tell sinful souls not to be afraid to approach Me;
speak to them of My great mercy" (Diary, 1396).
