"...Strive after silence and humility, so that Jesus, who dwells in your heart continuously, may be able to rest.... He will be your strength."
(Diary of St. Faustina #785)
The Best Way to Fulfill One's Mission
in this Life
"It is My positive will
that souls should so abandon themselves into My Mother's keeping that
they will be like little children held tightly against Her Immaculate Heart.
Who will speak to souls of My Mother?
Who will tell them that they need not fear the darkness of the night,
so long as My Mother is near?
Who will tell them that souls entrusted to My Mother are protected and guided,
and led along that path that I have laid out for each one?
There is no better way of fulfilling one's mission in this life
than by giving oneself over to My Mother
in an act of irrevocable and total consecration.
"Those who have made such an act know of what I speak.
My Mother honors every consecration made to her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart,
and even if one should forget that one has uttered such a prayer,
My Mother does not forget it.
She remains faithful to Her own children,
even when these are distracted by the world and turn away
from Her shining brightness,
shining like a star over the stormy seas of life.
"My Mother waits for souls to remember Her and to return to Her maternal Heart,
and when they return to Her,
She welcomes them with an immense tenderness and joy.
Never does She pronounce a word of reproach to the child who returns to Her,
who keeps watch at Her gate, who seeks to meet Her loving gaze.
My Mother is the Queen of Mercy."

A GROWING NETWORK OF TRUST
JESUS, I TRUST IN YOU -- X 20
As one significant way of marking our 20th Anniversary year, we are inviting all of you to pray "Jesus, I trust in You." We are asking that you pray that simple, remarkable, powerful prayer not once, but 20 times a day.
We invite you to begin to pray it right now,
and to pledge to pray it 20 times a day for the next year.
If you wish, you can go to our website and put your name on a list to be part of the growing Network of Trust spreading out from the Mission.
St Joseph Workshop
will return sometime in the new year.
Thank you for your interest and patronage.
