SENTIMENTS OF THE SOUL
June 5 - First
― The faithful soul does not
fear the cross; she takes it, embraces it, caresses it, accepts it
for love alone! The thorns
which Jesus adorns his crucified ones on earth will become petals of
the most beautiful and luxuriant roses in Heaven. But more, they
will become pearls, precious stones. How charming for Jesus is a
virgin who gives herself wholly to Him and suffers everything for
― My Jesus, I give myself to
You, I suffer for You: wrench my heart with pain; I want to love
You, I want to give souls to You. Cover all my poor body with
thorns, for what am I without You? Misery, my Jesus, only misery.
― You are great, you are
strong, my beloved. You will be great for the world and great in the
eyes of God. You are rich, you are rich, my love, with the greatest
gifts and the greatest riches of Heaven. How beautiful is God, how
beautiful is Jesus and how beautiful he makes His souls! My dear
love-crazed one, my hero, You will give the greatest proof, the
final proof of your love for Jesus and for souls (in the Refuge
of Infantile Paralysis, in Foz do Douro, Porto). Don’t be
afraid, don’t be afraid, Jesus and Mary are with you, the Holy
Spirit will enlighten you always. You are the richest treasure chest
that Jesus has on earth, you have much to distribute among souls.
― O Jesus, I depend on all
the grace, strength and love of Heaven.
― Tell your Dear Father
Confessor that Jesus chose you, tell your doctor that Jesus trusts
you, tell your dear sister who suffers with you in your pains, tell
everyone who helps you climb the painful Calvary that the first
blessings, the first graces and all that belongs to Heaven will be
for them. Tell your Dear Father that already here on earth he has a
divine throne in my heart. Tell him that Jesus and Mary love him
greatly. Tell him that, as he has done in this fight, to follow you
always, always with prayers, always, always with that union of souls
with which I united you both. Tell your doctor to be strong with the
strength of my divine Heart; to go along with you, always, to help
you carry the cross; to depend always on the grace and blessings of
the Lord for himself and for his family; they will all have the
grace of final perseverance. Jesus caresses you, the Heavenly Mother
caresses you: these caresses are the tenderness, gentleness and love
― Take comfort, O my dear
daughter, spouse of my Jesus, salvation of all my children.
How you are loved by the
whole heavenly court!
These last words were spoken
by the Heavenly Mother.
On the eve of my departure,
after having offered the sacrifice of my departure to Our Lord, long
before dawn, in a deep unburdening of heart, I said: O my Jesus, I
just want to do your holy will. At once I heard Him in His infinite
― Courage, my daughter, only
a more few days! This is my cause, it is for the dear lambs of my
July 13 – After
In the midst of a great
discouragement of soul, I asked Jesus for comfort and He said me:
― Cheer up, cheer up, my
daughter, and keep your sister cheerful. You are returning to your
dear house, the light is already lit. Happy those who seek to see by
it and let themselves be lead through these times! Cheer up, because
it is Jesus. I shall not demand more sacrifice of this kind, nor
shall I allow them to. You will go free from danger. Jesus continues
perform do His miracles. Go on until you fly up from earth to
August 7 – First
― Transports of love, joy
upon joy, songs of praise! Jesus comes, Mary comes to the nest of
their lovers. They come fulfilling their promise and to make up for
their absence last Saturday. It wasn’t fitting that Jesus should
speak in that painful prison. See Him now radiant, see Him
overjoyed, and with His blessed Mother. He is now in His tabernacle,
in His established house on earth. Your pain was acute, dear little
daughter, hard too was the suffering of your dear sister in that
prison. Onward! It was for Jesus, it was for His glory, it was for
the salvation of thousands and thousands of sinners. What triumph
for the Heart of your Jesus, your spouse! See Him being exalted, see
Him being glorified in his dear humiliated ones. Jesus is pleased
with such glory, such triumph. It is enough, it is enough now, my
daughter, you needn’t leave your little room any more; the paradise
of Jesus, His refuge on this earth. See Him, see Him happy and
joyful. It is Jesus showing your dear Father how much He loves him.
It is Jesus showing the world how much He loves his dear foolish
spouse, how much He has been glorified through her.
Speak, daughter, speak, my
love; tell your dear Father, tell your doctor that all their
humiliations will be exalted. Jesus is grateful to them for the
success, for the achievement of His cause. Men tried to stamp it
into the earth, Jesus kept watch while they worked together. Nothing
that is of Jesus falls, in the midst of storms it is safe, glows,
triumphs. Jesus reigns with His dear love-crazed one. Jesus triumphs
with the loved ones of his beloved.
― O my Jesus, thank you very
much. Triumph and reign for your glory, to save souls. I want to be
little in the eyes of the world, but great in love, great in the
power of saving souls for You, with this power that is yours, with
this power that belongs only to You.
― Immerse yourself, immerse
yourself, dear little daughter, in the love of Jesus and of your
dear Heavenly Mother; give it as you want to my beloved souls who
are your loved ones. The caresses of Jesus, the caresses of Mary,
the divine madness of love.
September 4 - First
― I am so good, my daughter!
The dwelling which is your heart is so delicious and sweet! Be
joyful, console yourself; you are the palace where Jesus dwells.
What charming and fragrant flowers adorn this heart! Do you know,
daughter, do you know, love, What these are? They are your virtues,
your pain, These are the gifts with which your Husband enriches you.
They are cumulative gifts of God. You are the lily, you are the
Madonna lily which enchants Jesus. You are the little violet,
purple and hidden. Your humility enchants heaven and earth.
Sigh, little one, don’t
delay, yearn for my country, for it is your homeland too: I created
you for it. Your place is high, so high, together with the Divine.
Only there will you really know the value of suffering. Only there
you will see the mission entrusted to you. Thousands and thousands
of sinners saved by you will sing beautiful hymns to you on your
arrival! All heaven waits to pay you tribute. You are the dear
spouse, most beloved of Jesus.
― O my Jesus, I do not know
what to say to You. You clothe me with what is yours, with what
pleases You. You cover the enormity of my miseries with your
brilliance, your magnitude. Take pity on me, Jesus!
― Jesus, your love, by love
enriched. And you, faithful spouse, matched love for love and were
faithful. The work is done, your mission on earth is almost
accomplished. Tell your little Father that, as evidence of my love
for him, and that he is the son of my predilection, I chose him
from the Company (of Jesus) to set before you, that I gave you to
him so that he could guide you to Me. I love him, he has been most
faithful to my Divine Heart. Tell your doctor that the proof of my
divine love for him was to choose him to perform difficult tasks.
They were full of thorns, but of great joy and consolation to me. My
blessings and my love I shower on him in all their abundance. His
dear children are the pearls are of my divine Heart, They are jewels
from the richest caskets of the treasures of Jesus, always on
display. O my daughter, O love, receive the caresses of Jesus,
receive the tenderness of your dear Mother.
― Little daughter, little
daughter, save humanity with me, save me Portugal with me! You are
the dearest spouse of Jesus, you are the beloved daughter of my most
holy Heart. O little Mother, O little Mother, accept my pains, save
humanity with them, Save our beloved Portugal with them.
― It is saved, it is saved,
it is saved with pain and love.
― Thank you, little Mother!
Give thanks to Jesus for me.
