The Season of Advent

adventThe sacred season of Advent is nearing, in which Holy Mother Church celebrates the memory of the Divine Espousal, which the Eternal Word made with our human nature in his Holy Incarnation. Contemplate, my daughter, this deepest mystery of infinite love and allow your soul complete liberty to be immersed in that infinite sea of every good. Ask and pray that soon the great Espousal of Love between your soul and Jesus may be accomplished – as well as for me, poor and unworthy as I am.

St. Paul of the Cross to Agnes Grazi, 29th November 1736.

During Holy Advent humble yourself the more in considering in infinite goodness of God, who wished to reduce himself to our humanity, concealing himself in the unblemished womb of the Immaculate Virgin. Love this Infinite Good with the sweetest heart of the great Lady, Mary Most Holy. God will teach you.

St. Paul of the Cross to Agnes Grazi, 20th October 1734.
