Then I heard the following words spoken thus: I want you to be My spouse.Fear pierced my soul, but I calmly continued to reflect on what sort of anespousal this could be. However, each time fear would invade my soul, a power from on high would give it peace (Diary, 912).

The Lord said to me, I want to give Myself to souls and to fill them with My love, but few there are who want to accept all the graces My love has intended for them. My grace is not lost; if the soul for whom it was intended does not accept it, another soul takes it (Diary, 1017).

My Prayer Response:

Lord Jesus, You want to give Yourself to souls and fill them with Your love and mercy. But so many souls refuse Your love. Change my heart, Lord, to desireYou alone. And fill me with Your love and mercy.
