The simplest, most delicate way

Daughters, it is the Spirit alone that will bring order out of the chaos of your hearts and the Spirit alone within you that can speak of the love you have for God.  Let go of your feeble attempts to control the realities around you and yield to the direction of the Spirit; for in yielding you will also know His strength.

“My beloved Jesus, I come to receive Your word and above all Your love—Thursday, this day dearest to my heart of all the days of the week.”

“Enter into my courts. Ask the help of My mother. Go farther, still farther. Leave material things behind. Go right into the most secret shrine. There, where there is silence, the freedom of inner knowing, the flame that burns to burn more brightly.

Then ask the Spirit to brood over you as He brooded over the waters before the end of Creation.

By yourself you are chaos. Do you fully realize this? Do you try to keep it in mind? Have you humbled yourself today in thought or deed? Not to cause you distress nor diminish your strength, but to tighten your hold on the power of your God, who is only waiting for your call.

And now, possessed by the Spirit, what else could inspire your words but love? Tell Him, the Spirit of love, to speak for you. Don’t you think that it will be in the simplest, most delicate way?  For the Spirit also adopts the language of the little ones. Wasn’t My very humble mother overshadowed by Him when she answered the angel, ‘Behold the handmaid of the Lord’?”
