Today, in the course of a long conversation, the Lord said to me, How 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 (Diary, 1784).
My Prayer Response:
O Lord Jesus, what power is in the two words: “if only.” You want to sanctity me and all souls if only we were willing to accept Your grace if only we wouldtrust in Your mercy!
