Jesus showed me a robe which he called, “the robe of innocence.” It was whiter than snow. He put it on me saying, “With this, I am taking from you forever all ill will.”. . .Then, opening to me his adorable Heart and putting me within it, he said, “This will be the place of your present and continual dwelling.” Since then I have always seen and found myself in this lovable Heart in a way I do not know how to explain, unless by saying that sometimes it was as though I were in a beautiful garden with flowers growing all around; at other times like a minnow in a vast ocean, or like gold being purified in a crucible. But usually it is like a furnace of pure love.
