In order to find in this Year a good catechesis announcing Mercy we will find a great help in the magnificent work done by Mother Trinidad: her book “Fruits of prayer”. A book that was envisaged in all its details, especially lived and loved by the author.

Under the broad heading LIVING IN THE TRUTH, she proposes some sections that will take us by the hand along our itinerary so as not to miss this great discovery. A discovery that is not so much centred on intellectual knowledge but is rather a lively experience.

 

The absolute and sincere trust in God our Father as a permanent lifestyle.

Yes, because it is the little ones capable alone of trusting in God’s Heart, since it is particularly they who have treasured in their hearts during the course of time the vital knowledge that He alone is faithful and always “rises to the occasion” for our sake in every circumstance whatever this might be. Without trust there is no hope.

 

God is Love, and in order to enter into Him you need a great and trusting love in our Father, who, burning in the Holy Spirit, is waiting for all His children to come. (27-3-59)

Why do men fail to attain the fulfilment of their hopes? Because they do not hope in God, the only fulfilment of man. (17-4-70)

Those who have not discovered the heart of God, either abuse of Him by rebelling against Him with disdain and indifference, or get scared by the imperfections of their own miseries when approaching the Infinite One. How important it is to know God so as to respond to Him as He deserves and to be in the centre of His will! (18-8-73)

Oh if men were to know the immense heart of God, who loves, gives Himself totally and, in response, He only asks for our self-donation, according to our own personal and perhaps imperfect way of our self-giving! (18-8-73)

How can God ask a crippled son not to limp? How can He ask a paralytic to walk, or a blind person to see? How can God ask for the impossible? That is why, He, who knows our weaknesses, only asks us for a total surrender counting on the shortcomings of our own nature. (18-8-73)

When discouragement may take hold of you, think that it is all the wisdom of the most wise infinite Being, who, in knowing you, loved you and chose you with eternal predilection. In the face of so much love of God, who will distrust? (1-3-61)

I think there is no other fault that most hurts the heart of our Father than distrust, since this goes directly against the merciful love of Incarnate Mercy. (21-3-61)

Why do I feel troubled when creatures fail me? Because I put my trust in them without reflecting on what Scripture says: “Cursed is the man who trusts in human beings who cannot save.” (12-12-61)

Evangelical childhood lies in entrusting everything to the Father, knowing that His love will do in us all that which is impossible to attain for our lowliness. (12-11-63)

Be small and see in whatever happens to you the loving hand of God, who, with a Father’s heart, wants to usher you into His heart. (6-1-64)

How good it is for us to receive some slaps from God our Father at times! Instead of punishments, they are affectionate kisses we do not want to see. (19-9-66)

Why are you so very worried about you as if you had no Father? That is lack of faith in the love God has for you! (19-9-66)

What you feel, and that other thing, no matter how bad it is, if you do not want it, it doesn’t displease God. Trust… trust; He is love. (21-4-67)

Many times God permits diverse difficulties so we may try to solve them with prudence and, by laying them into His hands with trust and love, we ask Him for all with humility. (3-11-76)
