Discovering Her Vocation

"When, in the excess of my delirious joy, I cried out.-
"Jesus my Love... my vocation, at last I have found it,
my vocation is Love !... Yes, I have found my place
in the Church and it is You, 0 my God,
who have given me this place. . . In the heart of the Church,
my Mother I shall be Love... thus I shall be everything...
and thus my dream will be realized!"

"Considering the mystical body of the Church, I did not recognize myself in any of the members described by St. Paul, or rather I desired to see myself in them all. Charity gave me the key to my vocation. I understood that if the Church had a body composed of different members, the most necessary and most noble of all could not be lacking to it, and so I understood that the Church had a heart and that this Heart was burning with Love. I understood it was Love alone that made the Church's members act, that if Love ever became extinct, apostles would not preach the Gospel and martyrs would not shed their blood... I understood that Love comprised all times and places... in a word, that it was eternal!

Then, in the excess of my delirious joy, I cried out, O Jesus my Love... my vocation, at last I have found it, my vocation is Love! Yes, I have found my place in the Church and it is You, O my God, who have given me this place... In the heart of the Church, my Mother, I shall be Love... thus I shall be everything... and thus my dream will be realized!!!"

"I don't hasten to the first place but to the last; rather than advance myself like the Pharisee, I repeat, filled with confidence, the publican's humble prayer. Most of all, I imitate the conduct of Magdalene; her astonishing or rather her loving audacity, which charms the heart of Jesus, also attracts my own. Yes, I feel it; even though I had on my conscience all the sins that can be committed, I would go, my heart broken with sorrow, and throw myself into Jesus' arms, for I know how much He loves the prodigal child who returns to Him. It is not because God in His anticipating Mercy, has preserved my soul from mortal sin that I go to Him with confidence and love".
