Conversations with the Merciful Savior
Part Two: With a Soul Striving after Perfection
Jesus: My child, know that the greatest obstacles to holiness are discouragement and an exaggerated anxiety. These will deprive you of the ability to practice virtue. All temptations united together ought not disturb your interior peace, not even momentarily. Sensitiveness and discouragement are the fruits of self-love. You should not become discouraged, but strive to make My love reign in place of your self-love. Have confidence, My child. Do not lose heart in coming for pardon, for I am always ready to forgive you. As often as you beg for it, you glorify My mercy (Diary, 1488).
Soul: Your response.

My Prayer Response:
Lord Jesus, You certainly put Your finger on my problem — exaggerated anxiety. Help me to make Your love reign in place of my self-love. Help me with Your mercy.
