Discovering Mercy…
“God communicates himself
to the little ones”

The “little ones” are not irresponsible or unconscious. Conversely, they are the most authentic and loyal to truth in this world, because they know where they can go, where they cannot get and how to reach their goal. It is to them that the mystery of the Kingdom of Heaven is revealed.

And that mystery – Mercy – to which everyone is called, remains an unknown reality.

 

 

          The least among men is perhaps the greatest in God’s sight since He knows the depths of the heart and is well-pleased in the simple ones, communicating His secrets to them. (14-12-76)

  

          The secret of Love is revealed to the little ones so they may communicate it. (26-3-59)

  

          “No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal Him.” And the Son wishes to communicate it to the little ones, fulfilling the desire of the Father who sent Him: “I give praise to You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although You have hidden these things from the wise and the learned, You have revealed them to the childlike.” (6-11-63)

  

          The Fathers seats us on His knees, tells us about His Word and kisses us with the Love of the Holy Spirit. (6-11-63)

  

          How will you enter the secrets of the Kingdom of God if you are not small? Don’t you know that God resists the proud? To the extent that you are small, you will know the secret of the Father, which is found in the bosom of the Church. (12-11-63)

  

          In the humble person the Lord rests and communicates His mysteries to him, even the most hidden mysteries. (9-1-67)

  

          More than anything else I want to be small and simple, because in it I found the way to please You, the way to say yes to You and the way to comfort You. (10-12-64)

  

          I want to be simple and small in the Father’s sight in order to sing Him the song, inflamed in loving fire, which only the little ones and the pure of heart do sing. (9-8-59)

  

          My great richness is to have no human richness; my great richness is not to be, not to be capable, not to know, to be of no use; my great richness is to be little, poor, helpless, having no science, or human wisdom that may hinder God’s infinite gift depositing His richness into my poverty, His greatness into my lowliness, His all into my nothingness, His life into my death, His wisdom and science into my ignorance. (19-4-64)

  

          How much do I feel attracted by sincere and simple persons who are not two-faced, who behave as they are and are as they behave! To me, this is one of the greatest values of man. (13-1-73)

  

          How good it is to be simple, and how simple it is to be good, when one is simple! (24-1-69)

  

          How hard it is for me to make those whom I love suffer! How hard it is for me to say no to what others say yes! How hard it is to be truthful! But out of love for the ones You gave me, I will not be silent, Lord! (28-1-77)

  

          Hypocrisy terribly repels me; I seek simple hearts to turn them into a dwelling where God may happily rest. (13-1-73)

  

          Jesus, the greatest torture of my soul was always to see that Your own did not enter inside You, that they also remained outside because of their lack of perseverance in prayer, of self-giving in their lives, of self-forgetfulness and true humility. (12-5-64)

  

          My soul has no consolation and cries out to the point of dying over the great tragedy in which the Church of mine finds Herself, since, notwithstanding the abundance of liturgical services, the spirit of many of those who follow God is dried out; because the Lord seeks simple hearts in whom He can rest, to speak His Word to them. (29-4-66)

  

          A pure heart I need, a simple and committed soul, an abnegated soul who forgets about itself, that I may rest in it and give it My eternal wisdom. (12-9-63)

Discovering Mercy…
“Evangelical simplicity”

In order to find in this Year a good catechesis announcing Mercy we will find a great help in the magnificent work done by Mother Trinidad: her book “Fruits of prayer”. A book that was envisaged in all its details, especially lived and loved by the author.

Under the broad heading LIVING IN THE TRUTH, she proposes some sections that will take us by the hand along our itinerary so as not to miss this great discovery. A discovery that is not so much centred on intellectual knowledge but is rather a lively experience.

The absolute and sincere trust in God our Father as a permanent lifestyle.

Yes, because it is the little ones capable alone of trusting in God’s Heart, since it is particularly they who have treasured in their hearts during the course of time the vital knowledge that He alone is faithful and always “rises to the occasion” for our sake in every circumstance whatever this might be. Without trust there is no hope.

 

 

          God is Love, and in order to enter into Him you need a great and trusting love in our Father, who, burning in the Holy Spirit, is waiting for all His children to come. (27-3-59)

  

          Why do men fail to attain the fulfilment of their hopes? Because they do not hope in God, the only fulfilment of man. (17-4-70)

  

          Those who have not discovered the heart of God, either abuse of Him by rebelling against Him with disdain and indifference, or get scared by the imperfections of their own miseries when approaching the Infinite One. How important it is to know God so as to respond to Him as He deserves and to be in the centre of His will! (18-8-73)

  

          Oh if men were to know the immense heart of God, who loves, gives Himself totally and, in response, He only asks for our self-donation, according to our own personal and perhaps imperfect way of our self-giving! (18-8-73)

  

          How can God ask a crippled son not to limp? How can He ask a paralytic to walk, or a blind person to see? How can God ask for the impossible? That is why, He, who knows our weaknesses, only asks us for a total surrender counting on the shortcomings of our own nature. (18-8-73)

  

          When discouragement may take hold of you, think that it is all the wisdom of the most wise infinite Being, who, in knowing you, loved you and chose you with eternal predilection. In the face of so much love of God, who will distrust? (1-3-61)

  

          I think there is no other fault that most hurts the heart of our Father than distrust, since this goes directly against the merciful love of Incarnate Mercy. (21-3-61)

  

          Why do I feel troubled when creatures fail me? Because I put my trust in them without reflecting on what Scripture says: “Cursed is the man who trusts in human beings who cannot save.” (12-12-61)

  

          Evangelical childhood lies in entrusting everything to the Father, knowing that His love will do in us all that which is impossible to attain for our lowliness. (12-11-63)

  

          Be small and see in whatever happens to you the loving hand of God, who, with a Father’s heart, wants to usher you into His heart. (6-1-64)

  

          How good it is for us to receive some slaps from God our Father at times! Instead of punishments, they are affectionate kisses we do not want to see. (19-9-66)

  

          Why are you so very worried about you as if you had no Father? That is lack of faith in the love God has for you! (19-9-66)

  

          What you feel, and that other thing, no matter how bad it is, if you do not want it, it doesn’t displease God. Trust… trust; He is love. (21-4-67)

  

          Many times God permits diverse difficulties so we may try to solve them with prudence and, by laying them into His hands with trust and love, we ask Him for all with humility. (3-11-76)
