Meditation:

Once, I suddenly saw Jesus in great majesty, and He spoke these words to me: My daughter, if you wish, I will this instant create a new world, more beautiful than this one, and you will live there for the rest of your life. I answered, “I don’t want any worlds. I want You, Jesus. I want to love You, with the same love that You have for me. I beg You for only one thing: to make my heart capable of loving You. I am very much surprised at Your offer, my Jesus; what are those worlds to me? Even if You gave me a thousand of them, what are they to me? You know very well, Jesus, that my heart is dying of longing for You. Everything that is not You is nothing to me.” … Then I heard these words:With no other soul do I unite Myself as closely and in such a way as I do with you, and this because of the deep humility and ardent love whichyou have for Me (Diary, 587).

My Prayer Response:

Dearest Jesus, like St. Faustina, I want to desire only You. I want to live now and in eternity with humble obedience to Your will out of a love that is on firefor You alone.
