“Do you fully realize that you need trials in the spiritual life, our life together. Life on earth is not yet the life of heaven. It’s only love’s beginning. Love grows in trial—even in the very little ones, but it doesn’t notice this; its hunger is never satisfied. What joy it gives Me to help you! . . .
“Come along with Me then, keeping close, and we’ll talk together. You will hear Me, and humbly you will translate My words into daily living. I know how to take a soul captive. I don’t speak in vain. So just work together with Me since I’m leading you to the Father.
“My little girl will grow, not by herself but by Me. I go on creating you. In our intimacy this evening before you go to sleep, when your heart is close to Mine, won’t you give Me its most tender thanks?”
