This evening, the Lord asked me, Do you not have any desires in your heart? I answered, “I have one great desire, and it is to be united with You forever.” And the Lord answered me, That will happen soon. My dearest child, your every stirring is reflected in My Heart. My gaze rests kindly upon you before any other creature (Diary, 1700).

My Prayer Response:

Lord Jesus, the desire of my heart is to have the one great desire of St. Faustina: “to be united with You forever.” May I grow in that desire by Your loving mercy and grace.
