Jesus to St. Mechtilde

“I, who am the Creator of the Universe, need no reward, but you yourself are My reward since My Heavenly Father has given you to Me to be My spouse and My child.”
St. Mechtilde: “Why, most loving Lord, do you act thus towards me, who have nothing of good in me?”
Jesus: “Because of My Goodness, because I have placed the delights of My heart in you.”
