951 + O incomprehensible and limitless Mercy Divine, To extol and adore You worthily, who can? Supreme attribute of Almighty God, You are the sweet hope for sinful man. Into one hymn yourselves unite, stars, earth and sea, and in one accord, thankfully and fervently sing of the incomprehensible Divine Mercy. 952 (298) My Jesus, You see that Your holy will is everything to me. It makes no difference to me what You do with me. You command me to set to work – and I begin calmly, although I know that I am incapable of it; through Your representatives, You order me to wait – so I wait patiently; You fill my soul with enthusiasm – but You do not make it possible for me to act; You attract me to Yourself in heaven – and You leave me in this world; You pour into my soul a great yearning for Yourself – and You hide Yourself from me. I am dying of the desire to be united with You forever, and You do not let death come near me. O will of God, you are the nourishment and delight of my soul. When I submit to the holy will of my God, a deep peace floods my soul. O my Jesus, You do not give a reward for the successful performance of a work, but for the good will and the labor undertaken. Therefore, I am completely at peace, even if all my undertakings and efforts should be thwarted or should come to naught. If I do (299) all that is in my power, the rest is not my business. And therefore the greatest storms do not disturb the depths of my peace; the will of God dwells in my conscience. 953 + February 15, 1937. Today my suffering increased somewhat: I not only feel greater pain all through my lungs, but also some strange pains in my intestines, I am suffering as much as my weak nature can bear, all for immortal souls, to plead the mercy of God for poor sinners and to beg for strength for priests. Oh, how much reverence I have for priests; and I am asking Jesus, the High Priest, to grant them many graces. 954 Today after Holy Communion, the Lord told me, My daughter, My delight is to unite myself with you. It is when you submit yourself to My will that you give Me the greatest glory and draw upon yourself a sea of blessings. I would not take such special delight in you if you were not living by my will. O my sweet Guest, I am prepared for all sacrifices for Your sake, but You know (300) that I am weakness itself. Nevertheless, with You I can do all things. O my Jesus, I beseech You, be with me at each instant. 955 February 15, 1937. Today, I heard these words in my soul: Most pleasing to My Father, know, My daughter, that the entire Holy Trinity finds Its special delight in you, because you live exclusively by the will of God. No sacrifice can compare with this. 956 + After these words, the knowledge of God‟s will came to me; that is to say, I now see everything from a higher point of view and accept all events and things, pleasant and unpleasant, with love, as tokens of the heavenly Father‟s special affection. 957 The pure offering of my will will burn on the altar of love. That my sacrifice may be perfect, I untied myself closely with the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. When great sufferings will cause my nature to tremble, and my physical and spiritual strength will diminish, then will I hide myself deep in the open wound of the Heart (301 ) of Jesus, silent 235 as a dove, without complaint. Let all my desires, even the holiest, noblest and most beautiful, take always the last place and Your holy will, the very first. The least of Your desires, O Lord, is more precious to me than heaven, with all its treasures. I know very well that people will not understand me; that is why my sacrifice will be purer in Your eyes. 958 Some days ago, a certain person came to me and asked me to pray for her intention, as she had some urgent and important business. All of a sudden, I felt in my soul that this matter was not pleasing to God, and I replied that I would not pray for this intention, “but I will pray for you, in general” [I added]. A few days later, this lady came back to me and thanked me for not having prayed for her intention, but rather for her, because she had been motivated by a spirit of revenge toward a certain person to whom she owed respect and veneration in virtue (302) of the fourth commandment. The Lord Jesus had changed her interior [dispositions], and she herself acknowledged her guilt; but was, however, surprised that I had penetrated her secret. 959 + Today I received a letter from Father Sopocko, who sent me greetings for my feast day [February 15]. His greetings gave me joy, but his poor health made me sad. I had known about this by interior intuition, but had not quite believed it. But it seems to me that if he himself wrote that this was so, then the other things about which he did not write are also true, and my interior knowledge has not deceived me. He requested me to underline all that I know does not come from me; that is to say, all that Jesus tells me which I hear in my soul.172 He has already asked me to do this several times, but I did not have the time and, to tell the truth, I was in no hurry to do so. But how does he know that I have not done this? I was very surprised; but now I am setting about this work with all my heart. O my Jesus, Your representative‟s will is clearly Your holy will, without a shadow of a doubt.
960 (303) February 16, 1937. Today I entered a neighboring room by mistake and so, for a
while, I talked with the person who was there. When I returned to my own room I thought
about that person for a few moments. Then suddenly, Jesus stood by my side and said.
My daughter, what are you thinking about right now? Without thinking, I snuggled
close to His heart, because I realized that I had been thinking too much about creatures.
961 + This morning after completing my spiritual exercises, I began at once to crochet. I
sensed a stillness in my heart; I sensed that Jesus was resting in it. That deep and sweet
consciousness of God‟s presence prompted me to say to the Lord, “O Most Holy Trinity
dwelling in my heart, I beg You: grant the grace of conversion to as many souls as the
[number of] stitches that I will make today with this crochet hook.” Then I heard these
words in my soul: My daughter, too great are your demands, “Jesus, You know that
for You it is easier to grant much rather than a little.” That is so, it is less difficult for Me to grant a soul much rather than a little, but every conversion of a sinful soul demands sacrifice. “Well, Jesus, I offer You (304) this whole-hearted work of mine; this
offering does not seem to me to be too small for such a large number of souls; You know,
Jesus, that for thirty years You were saving souls by just this kind of work. And since holy
obedience forbids me to perform great penances and mortifications, therefore I ask You,
Lord; accept these mere nothings stamped with the seal of obedience as great things.”
Then I heard a voice in my soul: My dear daughter, I comply with your request.
962 + I often see a certain person dear to God. The Lord has great love for him, not only
because he is striving to spread the veneration of God‟s mercy, but also because of the
love he has for the Lord God, although he does not always feel this love in his own heart
and is almost always in Gethsemane. However, this person is always pleasing to God,
and his great patience will overcome all difficulties.
963 + Oh, if only the suffering soul knew how it is loved by God, it would die of joy and excess
of happiness! Some day, we will know the value of suffering, but then we will no longer
be able to suffer. The present moment is ours.
964 (305) February 17, 1937. This morning during Holy Mass, I saw the Suffering Jesus. His
Passion was imprinted on my body in an invisible manner, but no less painfully.
965 Jesus looked at me and said, Souls perish in spite of My bitter Passion. I am giving them the last hope of salvation; that is, the Feast of My Mercy 255. If they will not adore My mercy, they will perish for all eternity. Secretary of My mercy, write, tell souls about this great mercy of Mine, because the awful day, the day of My justice, is near.
966 + Today, I heard in my soul these words: My daughter, it is time for you take action; I am with you. Great persecutions and sufferings are in store for you, but be comforted by the thought that many souls will be saved and sanctified by this work.
967 + When I set to work at underlining the Lord‟s words and thus was going through
everything in sequence, I reached the page where I had marked down Father Andrasz‟s
advice and directions. I did not know what to do, to underline or not to underline, and
then I heard these words in my soul: Underline, because these words are Mine; I have borrowed the lips (306) of the friend of My Heart in order to speak to you and
reassure you. You are to observe these directions until your death. It would not
please Me at all if you were to disobey these directions. Know that it is I who have
placed him between Myself and your soul. I am doing this to set you at peace and
so that you may not err.
968 Since I have placed you in this priest‟s special care, you are thus exempted from giving a detailed account to your superiors concerning My relationship with you. In all other matters, be as a child with your superiors, but whatever I do in the depths of your soul is to be told, with all frankness, only to the priests.
And I have noticed that, from the time God gave me a spiritual director, He has not
required me to report everything to the superiors, as was the case before, but only that
which concerns external matters: apart from this, only the director knows my soul. To
have a spiritual director is a special grace of God. Oh, how few have received it! The
soul remains in constant peace amidst the greatest difficulties. Every day after Holy
Communion, I thank the Lord Jesus for this grace, and every (307) day I ask the Holy
Spirit to enlighten him. I have truly experienced in my soul what power the director‟s
words have. Blessed by God‟s mercy for this grace!
969 + Today, I went to meditate before the Blessed Sacrament [in the sanatorium chapel].
When I approached the altar, God‟s presence pervaded my soul, I was plunged into the
ocean of His divinity, and Jesus said to me, My daughter, all that exists is yours. I
answered the Lord, „My heart wants nothing but You alone. O Treasure of my heart. For
all the gifts You give me, thank you, O Lord, but I desire only Your Heart. Though the
heavens are immense, they are nothing to me without You. You know very well, O Jesus,
that I am constantly swooning because of my longing for You.” Know this, My daughter, that you are already tasting now what other souls will obtain only in eternity.
970 And all of a sudden, my soul was flooded with the light of the knowledge of God. Oh,
would that I could express even a little of what my soul experiences when resting near the
Heart of the incomprehensible (308) Majesty! I cannot put it into words. Only a soul who
has experienced such a grace at least once in his life, will recognize it. When I returned
to my room, it seemed to me that I was coming from real life to death. When the doctor
came to take my pulse, he was surprised: “Sister, what happened? You have never had
a pulse like this! I would like to know what has speeded it up so much.” What could I tell
him, when I myself did not know that my pulse was so rapid. In only know that I am dying
of yearning for God, but this I did not tell him, for how can medicine help in this instance?
971 February 19, 1937. Contact with the dying. They ask me for prayer, and I can pray, as
the Lord grants me an extraordinary spirit of prayer. I am constantly united with Him, and
I am fully aware that I live for souls in order to bring them to Your mercy, O Lord. In this
matter, no sacrifice is too insignificant.
972 (309) Today, the doctor decided that I am to stay here until April. It is God‟s will, even
though I did want to be back in the company of my sisters.
973 I learned today about the death of one of our sisters 173 who died in Plock, but she visited
me even before they told me about her death.
974 February 22, 1937. Today, there began in our chapel a retreat for the hospital attendants,
although anyone who wishes may take part in it. There is one conference a day. Father
Bonaventure 174 speaks for a whole hour, and he speaks directly to souls. I took part in
this retreat, as I very much desire to know God more deeply and to love Him more
ardently, for I have understood that the greater the knowledge, the stronger the love.
975 Today I heard these words: Pray for souls that they be not afraid to approach the tribunal of My mercy. Do not grow weary of praying for sinners. You know what a burden their souls are to My Heart. Relieve My deathly sorrow; dispense My mercy.
976 (310) February 24, 1937. Today during Holy Mass, I saw the dying Jesus. The
sufferings of the Lord pierced my soul and body in an invisible manner. The pain is
enormous, though it lasts a very short time.
977 During the singing of the Lenten Lamentations, I am so taken up with His Passion that I
cannot withhold my tears. I would like to hide somewhere in order to give myself freely to
the sorrow which flows from the consideration of His Passion.
978 When I was praying for the intention of Father Andrasz, I learned how very pleasing he is
to God. Since then, I have had even greater respect for him, as for a saint. This has
given me great joy, and I thank God fervently for it.
979 Today at Benediction, I saw Jesus, and He spoke these words to me: Be obedient to your director in everything; his word is My will. Be certain in the depths of your
238 soul that it is I who am speaking through his lips, and I desire that you reveal the state of your soul to him with the same simplicity (311) and candor as you have with Me. I say it again, my daughter: know that his word is My will for you.
980 Today, I saw the Lord in great beauty, and he said to me, My loving host, pray for
