The Lord's Joy is Saving Us

Sr. Clare

What makes the Lord happy is when I let Him save me, and my happiness is in the fact that God desires to save me. He does everything, moves everything and permits everything in order to save me.

Part of an email from 2012. Sr. Clare writes to Mother Ana, Superior General of the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother, from the community in Belmonte, Spain. Sr. Clare mentions a grace she received after watching The Passion.

A few weeks ago we saw The Passion. It always helps me a lot as well as to examine my conscience.

After watching it recently, the scene of the Lord on the Cross and his conversation with the Good Thief touched me a lot. Jesus gave me light to understand that the Lord's joy is saving us. What makes the Lord happy is when I let Him save me, and my happiness is in the fact that God desires to save me. He does everything, moves everything and permits everything in order to save me.

This gives me so much peace! It's something I've heard and read a thousand times, but this time it is a very big grace.
