“Praise me for the immense flame of that mutual love between my divine Heart and the spotless Virgin”

Our Lady of Ostra Brama (Wikipedia)

The model that the Lord gave to Gertrude is the Virgin Mary:

"Praise me, through my harmonious Heart, for the purity of that perfect virginity by which, as a Virgin she conceived, as a Virgin she bore me and after childbirth, as a spotless Virgin she remained...

Praise me, through my harmonious Heart, for that all-peaceful humility by which the spotless Virgin was each day made more worthy to receive me; she imitated my own humility...

Praise me for the immense flame of that mutual love between my divine Heart and the undefiled Virgin, a love that delicately united and inseparably joined, in the virginal womb, the human nature to the transcendence of the divinity..."
