For now, let me share some juicy bits from her autobiography, Story of a Soul, which I find myself again reading lately. I'm thinking I might share some of it here, bit by bit, in Weedon fashion.
At the beginning of her writing, she admits her perplexity that God would give so much grace to someone as unworthy as her. In considering this, she writes:
"Then opening the Holy Gospels my eyes fell on these words: 'And going up a mountain, he called to him men of his own choosing, and they came to him.' This is the mystery of my vocation, my whole life, and especially the mystery of the privileges Jesus showered on my soul. He does not call those who are worthy but those whom He pleases or as St. Paul says: God will have mercy on whom he will have mercy, and he will show pity to whom he will show pity. So then there is question not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God showing mercy."
