The following is the last in a series of reflections from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, written as a dialogue between the Lord and the soul. These reflections are inspired by the Diary of St. Faustina and Scripture.

"Little one! You have been My faithful companion throughout these 40 days and the agony of My Passion. When others abandoned Me, your love and your trust comforted Me in My trials."
Lord! It is You! Like Mary Magdalene, I recognized You when You called me. Lord, let me be Your companion and Your friend, always. In my littleness, I pledge to You my love and my life.
"Ah, joy of My Heart! May your heart rejoice in all the gifts I long to give you, especially your share in My Divine Life. My delight, may your heart ever rejoice in My Resurrection."
