I am the Being
I am the Being in whom you have your being. I am deep within you — so deep that unless you advert to Me you are not aware of My existence. The things you are aware of are only My effects. They are superficial, and yet you measure almost everything by them.
     You think of your life and of your existence as one thing, and of Me, Jesus, your God, as something apart from you.  Thus you do not realize that it is I Who sustain you in your existence, apart from whom you are absolutely nothing, that it is I, the God who sustains you in being Who am your Jesus Who am waiting, waiting at each moment to give Myself to you, to give you not only the fulfillment of your natural life, but the supernatural perfection of that life, My life.
     But I cannot give you My Life unless you become quiet within Me.


Your natural life is given to you without this recollection, but My Life is waiting to pour itself into you as, by your recollection, you become more and more open to Me. Form the habit, therefore, of slipping away from everything else, letting yourself fall, so to speak, into Me. Everything that happens to you is ordered to this end. I am the Truth, and all truth is in Me.  When you let yourself fall into Me, deep within you, you leave all the lies with which you are so incessantly preoccupied, lies by which you seek continuously, in one way or another, to justify your existence.

 The Love of a Father
The love of a father is the spiritual womb of the child. There it is formed spiritually, nourished by his loving wisdom as it is helpless in itself, just as the little embryo is nourished by its mother's blood in the intimacy of her warm body. This spiritual love of the father, forming his child to his spiritual likeness, is at once the most perfect manifestation of the Bosom of the heavenly Father, eternally bringing forth His beloved Son, and the essential bridge to that Father in heaven. It is the child who knows this selfless love of a human father who cries out with spontaneous affection: "Our Father who are in heaven!" O, if fathers only understood their responsibility, and their power in Me!

Interior Silence
Interior silence is the most eloquent testimony of faith, of a faith that knows it is loved, loved all the more in the very realization of its corruption, in the realization that is has nothing for which it deserves to be loved, a faith that knows that it is loved in the very manifestation of His Love which God chooses to give it at this moment, a faith that wants this and only this, that would choose nothing else, simply because it is God's will to give it this now, a faith that has no eyes for the future because it cannot bear to take its eyes from Jesus now, in a word, a faith that receives everything from the Father, with Jesus, in Mary, because it expects everything from the Father. Do you know why interior silence is the testimony of this faith? It is because that silence is the necessary effect of this faith.

My Just Man Falls Seven Times
"When I permit you to fall in one way or another, whether it be serious or light, I have only one objective — to draw you to Myself, that you may love Me with greater intensity, knowing what you are in yourself without Me. But in order for your fall to have this effect, two things are necessary: One, that you see your own misery, the other that you understand My Goodness, My Merciful Love. And those who do not meditate on My Love, therefore, do not have the strength and the rectitude to face what they are in themselves. Or if they do, it only serves to drive them to despair, as it did Judas, because they conclude that their evil is too much even for God Himself. But for My beloved ones, their falls only serve to strengthen the bond between Us.  I allow them to fall because I delight in their confidence to see them trusting in Me all the more as they see their own misery: I delight in giving them the grace to trust Me — only because I am Good. Ah, if you could know the joy they give Me then."
