Saturday: Simplicity of Heart
Sister Josefa Menendez was a sister in the Society of the Sacred Heart and a mystic. Let her photo (“The mystic who wore an apron”) and her conversation with God be your ground and meditation today…
Jesus said to her:
Leave yourself in My hands, Josefa. I will use you as seems best to Me. What of your littleness and weakness … no matter. … All I ask of you is to love and console Me. I want you to know how dearly My Heart loves you, how great are the riches it contains, and you must be like soft wax that I may mold you to My liking.
Josefa’s response was simple and single-hearted:
Would that the whole world knew the secret of happiness. There is but one thing to do: love and abandon oneself. Jesus Himself will take charge of all the rest.
