On union with Jesus and Mary…
“My good Jesus, I have only you.” “We were grafted into the Cross.” “Let us sing the glory of our risen Jesus.” “Jesus is waiting for you in the chapel. Go and find him when your strength and patience are giving out, when you feel lonely and helpless. Say to him: ‘You know well what is happening, my dear Jesus. I have only you. Come to my aid ...’ And then go your way. And don’t worry about knowing how you are going to manage. It is enough to have told our good Lord. He has an excellent memory.” “The Hail Mary will take us to heaven.” “See how Jesus, Mary and Joseph loved one another, all three, how happy they looked, with what kindness and gentleness they spoke to each other. In our little family, it must be the same.” “My children, you love Our Lady? She will be your Mother!” “When you will be old, you will no longer see anything ... as for me, I no longer see anything but the good God.” “Eternal Father, open your gates today to the most miserable of your children, but one who greatly longs to see you. O Mary, my dear Mother, come to me. You know that I love you and I long to see You” (her last words).
