Monastery of the Visitation



 

St Margaret Mary relates how one day she beheld the Child Jesus in the arms of Our Blessed Lady -
"During my retreat l felt penetrated with immense joy and an ardent desire to caress Him which
 He allowed me to do as much as I pleased. When l wa
s so tired that l could no longer continue,
He said to me:   'Are you satisfied now? This must suffice you for ever, for l will that you be
abandoned to My power even as you have seen Me abandon Myself to you. Whether I caress
or cause you pain, you must have no other movements than those which I shall give you'.
St Margaret Mary adds: 'When He desired something from me, He urged me so strongly that it was impossible to resist'.
