A Saint’s deep Union and Realization

“One day, having a little more leisure, for the occupations confided to me left me scarcely any, I was praying before the Blessed Sacrament when I felt myself wholly penetrated with that Divine Presence, but to such a degree that I lost all thought of myself and of the place where I was and abandoned myself to this Divine Spirit, yielding up my heart to the power of His love. He made me repose for a long time upon His sacred breast, where He disclosed to me the marvels of His love and the inexplicable secrets of His Sacred Heart, which so far He had concealed from me. Then it was, that, for the first time, He revealed to me His Divine Heart in a manner so real and sensible as to be beyond all doubt, by reason of the effects which this favor produced in me. . . It seems to me that this is what took place: `My Divine Heart,’ He said, `is so inflamed with love for men, and for you in particular that, being unable any longer to contain within Itself the flames of Its burning Charity, It must spread them abroad by thy means and manifest Itself to them [mankind] in order to enrich them with the precious treasures which I reveal to you and which contain graces of sanctification and salvation necessary to withdraw them from the abyss of perdition. I have chosen you for the accomplishment of this great design.’

“After this He asked me for my heart, which I begged Him to take. He did so and placed it in His own adorable Heart where He showed it to me as a little atom which was being consumed in this great furnace and withdrawing it from His Heart it was like a burning flame in the form of a heart, He restored it to the place where He had taken it saying: `See, My well-beloved, I give you a precious token of My love, having enclosed within your side a little spark of its glowing flames, that it may serve you for a heart and consume you to the last moment of your life; its ardor will never be exhausted. . . As a proof that the great favor I have done for you is not of your imagination, and that it is the foundation of all those which I intend further to confer upon you, although I have closed the wound in your side, the pain will always remain. If before you have taken only the name of My slave, I now give you that of the beloved disciple of My Sacred Heart.'”
