Saint Margaret Mary AlacoqueOctober 16

“And He [Christ] showed me that it was His great Desire of being Loved by men and of withdrawing them from the path of ruin that made Him Form the Design of Manifesting His Heart to men, with all the Treasures of Love, of Mercy, of Grace, of Sanctification and Salvation which it contains, in order that those who desire to render Him and procure Him all the Honour and Love possible, might themselves be abundantly enriched with those Divine Treasures of which His Heart is the source.” — from Revelations of Our Lord to St. Mary Margaret Alacoque


V16 – 2.16.24 – (Jesus says to Luisa):Oh, if you could see My Heart, you would see all possible imaginable sorrows Centralized in Me, from which creatures Rise again to New Life, and all Contentments and Divine Riches, Flowing in My Heart like many Seas, as I Diffuse them for the Good of the whole human family.

But who shares more in these Immense Treasures of My Heart? For those who suffer more, for each pain, for each sorrow, there is a Special Joy in My Heart, which follows that pain or sorrow suffered by the creature. Pain renders her more Dignified, more Lovable, more Dear, more Worthy of Sympathy. And since My Heart drew upon Itself all Divine Sympathies by Virtue of the Pains Suffered, in seeing pain in the creature, which is a Special Characteristic of My Heart, watching over this pain, with all My Love I Pour upon her the Joys and Contentments which My Heart contains. But to My highest Sorrow, while My Heart would want to let My Joys Follow the pain I send to the creatures, not finding in them the Love of Suffering and the True Resignation which My Heart Possessed, My Joys still follow pain, but in seeing that the pain has not been received with Love and Honor and with highest Submission, My Joys do not find the way to enter that sorrowful heart and, grieving, they return to My Heart.

Therefore, when I find a soul who is Resigned, who Loves Suffering, I feel her as though Regenerated within My Heart, and – oh, how sorrows and joys, bitterness and sweetness, alternate. I hold nothing back of all the Goods which I can Pour upon her.”
