“…Our Lord made known to me that many pious souls meditate upon the humiliations of His Passion, but few think of the abasements of His Infancy. He wished me to dwell on these in order to oppose the spirit of pride, ambition and independence, the poverty of the Crib and the captivity of the swaddling clothes.
“I understand that the little Face of the Infant Jesus, unknown and covered with tears in the Crib, is an oblation as valuable and precious as the Face of Our Lord despised and covered with Blood on the Cross….I offer this Divine Child to the Eternal Father to appease His wrath: ‘Eternal Father, I offer Thee the adorable Face of the Infant Jesus to pay off our debts.’”
