FROM BACK COVER
"The unfolding of My love in you is My personal happiness; I'm waiting for it. Everything that affects you touches Me personally. My friend, you are part of Me and I, your Christ, am part of you. Then why should I alone desire this close union? Don't you also desire it?" (April17, 1947)
Enter into the intimate interior conversations between Jesus and Gabrielle Bossis, which she recorded in her diary from 1936 to 1950. Gabrielle heard a voice that was strong, yet tender. Through these pages, we learn that a deep relationship with God touches all aspects of daily life and quenches even the deepest longings of the soul.
"Jesus risks telling us he is in love with us and desires both our attention and our response. Jesus has a deep friendliness for us that he wishes we felt toward him. The simple talks in He and I between Jesus and Bossis hold the key to the development of this friendship with Jesus. No spiritual jargon, methods, or process. Just time spent with Jesus listening to his desire for us, his love for us, his suggestions for deepening a friendship:'
