« In another appearance to St. Faustina, the Christ Child told her, “… I keep company with you as a child to teach you humility and simplicity” (Diary, 184) — revealing to her the key virtues of the way of spiritual childhood. Jesus’ revelations here are very close to the spirit of St. Therese, “The Little Flower.” Therese wrote in her Autobiography: “Jesus has chosen to show me the only way that leads to the divine furnace of love; it is the way of childlike self-surrender, the way of a child who sleeps, afraid of nothing in its Father’s arms.” The way of spiritual childhood, however, is not childish. It is not excessively sentimental or naive. Rather, it involves a total surrender to our heavenly Father’s providential care — total abandonment of our own plans, opinions, and self-will, and radical trust in God. Saint Faustina knew very well how difficult such a childlike trust in God could be — especially in times of trouble and sorrow. She knew that the key was to rely on Jesus rather than herself every step of the way. One time, while adoring the Blessed Sacrament, she described a vision of the Blessed Virgin Mary holding the Baby Jesus in her arms. Mary told her “to accept all that God asked of [you] like a little child, without questioning.” Saint Faustina prayed to the Lord in response: “Do with me as You please; I am ready for everything, but You, O Lord, must not abandon me even for a moment” (Diary, 529).
“Trust God and do God’s Will. that is all we ever have to do in this Life is be Faithful to Love, Trust God and do God’s Will every day. that is Peace. that is Happiness. that is Real Love. that is the Mystery Of Us. Simple. Faithful. Trusting in Complete Surrender to God’s Will. Devoted in Christ As One Love One Life One Heart Til The End Of All Time.” -Owen Joseph/shannan suzzette »
