My daughter, you must set aside this rational plan of human logic, and cling fast to the plan of faith. Was it humanly logical that I should be born under the circumstances to be found at Bethlehem, which you know so well? Was it logical that I should remain thirty three years in the obscurity of a hidden life, when there were so many crowds to teach, so many sinners to pardon, so many sick to cure? Was it logical that I should die in the ignominy of the Cross and that I should end in the resounding defeat of Good Friday? Yet all that was conformable to the Father's plan of love.
I understand, be assured, that nature may be tempted to rebel, and it may begin to wish that the chalice be removed. But remember Gethsemane: all should finally be changed into resignation without further ado. "Not as I will, Father, but as thou willest."
It is this obedience - reaching even unto death and the death of the Cross - which, united to My obedience makes reparation for all human revolts.
Let me, then, lead you as I see fit. No one has ever regretted having been led by My Spirit. I know where I am going and I know where I am leading you. Be more and more humble and docile. Accept with joy the sacrifice I propose. I need your service and I need to have freedom to make use of you as I desire. Then you will see the glorious work we shall do together.
