To become more and more convinced of this great truth, that through sanctifying grace Jesus, is really present in my soul, which serves him incessantly as a living Tabernacle. Devotion to Jesus always present in my soul should be complementary to devotion to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. 2.

In my spiritual reading, my meditation, my aspiration, and in the practice of daily life, to aim at the realization of this fundamental truth, Jesus really present within me through sanctifying grace, it demands my entire being.

To do everything with Jesus is the surest way of doing everything for him and in his name. 7. I shall look upon this life of identification with Jesus as the most complete and loving donation that I can make of my whole being. There is no greater love than that of giving ones life for ones friend. 8. In order to feed the flame of my love I shall accustom myself to the practice of loving aspirations, a simple look of the heart, a simple loving and constant orientation of the soul towards God. Also telling Jesus how sorry I am for having left him alone, for having forgotten him in order to live my own life. 9.

I shall give Jesus the delight of being able to love his Mother as he did when he was on earth.
