St. Catherine of Siena

St. Catherine of Siena says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come to help you better understand the concept of trust. When you trust someone, you hold in your heart confidence in that person or group of people. For instance, if you put money into a bank, you have confidence that the bank will take care of it, and give it back to you when you need it.”

“Jesus’ Heart is also like a bank – a repository – in which you can place all your concerns. Unlike a bank, Jesus accepts what you surrender to Him, but He does not want you to ask for it back. He desires that what you leave with Him remain with Him. Just as you trust the human efforts in the banking system, Jesus desires you trust Him to know what to do, and to return to you even more than you expect in His way.”

“At the basis of this trust is love of God’s Provision and His Will for you. It is through trust you can withdraw inner strength and peace.”

“When the ‘balance’ of trust grows too low in your heart, you need to redeposit more love of God’s Will and His Provision. That is your security.”
