Playing Hard-to-Get with Our Lord

This is awesome:
What her [St. Mary Magdalene de Pazzi] experiences and prayer had given her was a familiar, personal relationship with Jesus. Her conversations with Jesus often take on a teasing, bantering tone that shocks those who have a formal, fearful image of God. [Oddly enough, I'd say in my own experience, the two don't always contradict one another...] For example, at the end of her forty days of graces, Jesus offered her a crown of flowers or a crown of thorns. No matter how often she chose the crown of thorns, Jesus kept teasingly pushing the crown of flowers to her. When he accused her, "I called and you didn't care," she answered back, "You didn't call loudly enough" and told him to shout his love. (Source.)
