I LOVE this quote from St. Faustina Kowalska.
“O Jesus, I am locking myself in Your most merciful heart
as in a fortress, impregnable against the missiles of my enemies.”
(St. Faustina Kowalska, Diary, #1535)
My response to theses few words surprised me because -I me smiled inside and out, Actually I am grinning, almost laughing with joy and at first I was not sure why. Then I realized that
I am locked in the Heart of God and I did not realize it!!
“Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts…”(Galatians 4:6).
“…Do you not know that Jesus Christ is in you…?” (2 Corinthians 13:5).
“I will never leave you, nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5b).
I know beyond any doubt that I live, hidden in Christ’s Merciful heart, just as He lives in me even when my mind seems preoccupied or far from God because that is all illusion. The truth is I AM His. We are all His; sometimes our minds just have not caught up to reality.
