From Chiara’s Diary
An experience that I have been living for some time now is this: when, in asking Jesus for some grace, I do not find the necessary faith, if I add “through Mary’s intercession,” I then have it. Mary, just her name is “substance of love” for my soul.".
This has not always been the case, absolutely not, but it has been so for some time now. In her, I see everything as possible, with her there are no problems that cannot be resolved…. But they are not just words: Mary is a sublime reality for my soul, a secure refuge: she is really my mother..
