    Bits and Pieces from 1943 Notebook

    Jesus says:

    "I shall repeat what I have already said regarding a soul that you must help Me to bring into the Light. Father, too, will thus be oriented. In addition, this repetition is also a response to the questions by Father, who--can be sure--is in his field of apostolate, and he will have a lot of work to do there still, for the pagans are here, and he is my missonary here. Let him thus arm himself with fortitude, patience, and constancy, and work on hearts for Me which are deafer than stones, so that **my Voice will enter into them.

    **Notice here Jesus says, His Voice will enter into them.

    "Let it enter. If, afterwards, once it has entered, hearts do not want to turn it into Life, all the worse for them. I, the little bearer of Me, and my missionary shall be justified before the Father. As for hearts, they will have to answer, for they have closed themselves to the Mercy of God, who uses all the means--from his beloved Son to the Son's faithful servants--to give supernatural aid to the creatures."


    Peace be with you always

    Jesus says:

    "You are not Maria and must not be known as Maria. You are a sigh emerging from my Heart, a wind blowing and refreshing brows without their knowing where it comes from or what its name is. Your personality is annulled. You, as a creature, must be nothing. You must not be. In not being, no one must know you as a writer of my Thought, no one except two or three privileged creatures, who are such by my Will. You are the breath of Jesus, and that's all. Later, when I will and no one can harm you, the name of my little voice will be known. But you will then be elsewhere, where human pettiness does not reach and human wickedness does not act.

    "In regard to that soul--and many like it--a superperfect charity must be exercised. As I exercised it many times in my earthly life. They are newly shaped-souls. Everything in them by instinct longs to be perfected, tends towards an increase in size, like the newborn child who feeds, moves about, whimpers, aspiring to know how to nourish himself, move around, and express himself, with real food, real steps, and real words. And they should be treated like the newborn. Without acts of impatience or aversion.

    "But do you know soul of mine, how often I felt my flesh crawl from such an intense disgust that it surfaced from my heart to my flesh when I had to approach sinful beings? And yet, if I had not approached them, could I ever have attracted them to Myself? I could have with a divine violence. But why use it when there is Love, which is the dearest of magnets?

    "I began my public life with a wedding feast, at which I had to hear the usual talk and the usual references during such feasts. I did not decline Matthew's invitation, to the point that I was reproached for it by fault-finders, stained by what they rebuked Me for--having entered that house. I did not reject the sinful woman who consumed, on my Flesh, the last remains of her artifices for seduction and canceled her debt to Grace with an act of contrite and courageous love. I did not scorn speaking with Samaritan woman, who was everyone' and no one's. I was not silent because pagans or sinners were mixed in among the crowds listening to Me. But, rather, precisely for their sake I found the sweetest glances, smiles, and words of love.

    I came and come to gather all my sheep into my sheepfold, and for the sheep that are distant and have taken twisting roads, as a good and tireless Shepherd I go amidst brambles and thorns, shedding tears and dripping blood until I have found and gathered them. If I call others to help Me in the work, these others must act as I do.

    "I know there is a holy modesty and an instinctive jealousy which bring suffering when they are under compulsion. But one must overcome holy modesty and unholy selfishness and let the 'little ones come to Me,' so they can hear my Voice through your work. One must act before them with great love and thoroughgoing freedom as if they were persons convinced of my Law.

    Peace be with you always
