"The solitude of His Heart is a crushing reality"

Now to share the part of Reverend Mother de Lescure's Letter to the Society that most impacted my prayer:

After speaking of the right our name gives us to enter and dwell in the Heart of Jesus, she says"
"this name would also be a title to entrance, not to the threshold but to the very depths of this divine Heart... The solitude of His Heart is a crushing reality. How many souls remain at the threshold, without ever trying to reach, were it only the edge of the torrents of Love which rise towards his Father and souls....The immense solitude of His Heart does not often find anyone with whom it can communicate. When he asks us not to leave him alone, let us understand of what desert he is speaking, what is the desire that consumes him of finding someone who is willing to enter and descend to its very depths."

To be continued tomorrow.  I was, of course, one who wanted to enter into the depths of the Heart of Jesus.
