Tuesday of the Nineteenth week in Ordinary Time
"Whoever humbles himself like this child....."
Saint Faustina Kowalska (1905-1938), Religious Sister
Diary, § 244 (trans. ©Congregation of Marians, 1987)
"Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven"
Now a gray, ordinary day has begun. The solemn hours of the perpetual vows have passed, but God's great grace has remained in my soul. I feel I am all God's; I feel I am His child, I feel I am wholly God's property. I experience this in a way that can be physically sensed. I am completely at peace about everything, because I know it is the Spouse's business to look after me. I have forgotten about myself completely.
My trust placed in His Most Merciful Heart has no limit. I am continuously united with Him. It seems to me as though Jesus could not be happy without me, nor could I without Him. Although I understand that, being God, He is happy in himself and has absolutely no need of any creature, still, His goodness compels Him to give himself to the creature – and with a generosity which is beyond understanding.
