Submission to the Will of God

Angels
The following is from Notebook II page page 292 #724 of St. Faustina's Diary
"Faithful submission to the will of God, always and everywhere, in all events and circumstances of life, gives great glory to God. Such submission to the will of God carries more weight with Him than long fasts, mortifications and the most severe penances. Oh, how great is the reward for one act of loving submission to the will of God! As i write, my soul is enraptured at the though of how much God loves it and of the peace that my soul already enjoys, here on earth..."

YES! It is obedience God desires from us, more than anything. Jesus was obedient unto death and it is what glorified the Father the most. For that the Father glorified his Son by having him sit at his right hand.
Thank you for this post, Esther!
