Divine Mercy Part 72

My beloved child, delight of my heart, your words are dearer and more pleasing to me than the angelic chorus. All the treasures of my heart are open to you. Take from this heart all that you need for yourself and for the whole world. For the sake of your love, I withhold the just chastisements, which mankind has deserved. A single act of pure love pleases me more than a thousand imperfect prayers. One of your sighs of love atones for many offenses with which the godless overwhelm me. The smallest act of virtue has unlimitedvalue in my eyes because of your great love for me. In a soul that lives on my love alone , I reign as in heaven. I watch over it day and night. In it I find my happiness; my ear is attentive to each request of its heart; often i anticipate its requests. O child, especially beloved by me, apple of my eye, rest a moment near my heart and taste of the love in which you will delight for all eternity.

But child, you are not yet in your homeland; so go, fortified by my grace, and fight for my kingdom in human souls; fight as a king's child would; and remember that the days of your exile will pass quickly, and with them the possibility of earning merit for heaven. I expect from you, my child, a great number of souls who will glorify my mercy for all eternity. My child, that you may answer my call worthily, receive me daily in holy Communion. It will give you strength...
