23 May 1990, Vassula prays:
My love is poor,
how will I ever replace Your Crown of thorns
by a garland of roses?
My spirit ponders this continually and sinks within me;
explain then to me without tiring of me,
and I shall learn,
teach me to love You as You desire us to love You
teach me to observe Your Law scrupulously for ever and ever,
so that I walk in the Path of Righteousness,
direct my steps in the Path of Love as You promised.
