No saint of mine has come into your life except by my design and by my will to speak to you, comfort you, and instruct you through each one. Attend, then, to the saints whom I have charged with a mission in your life. They are more attentive to you than you can ever be to them, and this because they are perfected in charity and united to my Heart in the glory of paradise. There are saints whom I have sent into your life as my emissaries, like the trusted brethren sent by the merciful abbot to comfort the wavering brother lest he fall into too great a sorrow.
(From In Sinu Iesu, The Journal of a Priest)
