Today I call you to a humble, my children, a humble devotion…



February 13, 2020

October 2, 2010 “Dear children; Today I call you to a humble, my children, humble devotion. Your hearts need to be just. May your crosses be your means in the battle against the sins of the present time. May your weapon be patience and boundless love, a love that knows to wait and which will make you capable of recognizing God’s signs, that your life, by humble love, may show the truth to all those who seek it in the darkness of lies… My children, my apostles, help me to open the paths to my Son. Once again, I call you to pray for your shepherds. Alongside them, I will triumph. Thank you.”


Our Lady told us so much in this message. It is truly from the depths of her heart. Humility, justice, the bearing of crosses, patience, boundless love, truth…all these things are the deep realities of Jesus and Mary. We are given these beautiful graces as we learn to live the life of faith, as we follow Jesus and Mary into the depths of the spiritual life. But truly it is humility that wins for us all the other graces and virtues.

St. Faustina followed Jesus and Mary in her daily life, and the fruit was the great Devotion to the Divine Mercy. Her Diary contains so much humility, beauty, and truth. Here is a joyful entry, #1306, in which St. Faustina sings the praises of a humble soul. Truly it was through humility that all the other graces were won in her life:

O humility, lovely flower, I see how few souls possess you. Is it because you are so beautiful and at the same time so difficult to attain? O yes, it is both the one and the other. Even God takes great pleasure in her. The floodgates of heaven are open to a humble soul, and a sea of graces flows down upon her. O how beautiful is a humble soul! From her heart, as from a censer, rises a varied and most pleasing fragrance which breaks through the skies and reaches God Himself, filling His Most Sacred Heart with joy. God refuses nothing to such a soul; she is all-powerful and influences the destiny of the whole world. God raises such a soul up to His very throne, and the more she humbles herself; the more God stoops down to her, pursuing her with His graces and accompanying her at every moment with His omnipotence. Such a soul is most deeply united with God. O humility, strike deep roots in my whole being. O Virgin most pure, but also most humble, help me to attain deep humility. Now I understand why there are so few saints; it is because so few souls are deeply humble. (Diary 1306)

May we all grow in our love of humility and a deeper understanding of the joy of living a humble life. In humility, many other souls are blessed.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
