True Love Is Fruitful of Good
Beloved daughter, read Isaiah 12:2-6. Good, now let us talk about the gospel of My Heart, full of love. If man really believes in this divine and human love, if man believes in My invitation to the banquet of love, to the eternal kingdom, close to Me, then everyday difficulties and problems cannot dampen man's joy. Because the sorrows of this world, the most atrocious pains, cannot compare in any way to the love I have shown and the happiness that I have promised and have prepared for them.
Think, loving hearts rejoice when they think of the one they love and delight in reciprocated love. How great then should their happiness be when they know that I love them and that their love is of much interest to Me? That is why, My daughter, their love is of more importance to Me than their works, even though, true love is naturally fruitful of good works and untiring in giving proof of its existence.
Everything that is done with love and that you know will be pleasing to your loved one, you do with courage and enthusiasm without thinking of any difficulties. Even friends, when they are together, speak trustingly. Those whom I begin to conquer with My Love look with pleasure towards Me and rejoice in being able to thank and praise Me. So many saints have understood that the Eucharist signifies giving thanks and praise which should fill the hearts and the lives of My children, and that the most direct reason which impels the joyful praise of the Trinity, is the Love that My Father and the Holy Spirit have shown in Me.
My daughter, if the Israelites sang joyously during their pilgrimages along the path that led them to the temple in Jerusalem, you should come to meet Me with so much more happiness knowing that I am burning with Love for you all. This Eucharistic Love will make your life a tranquil pilgrimage towards your eternal homeland. During this time, you will be gratified to know that I am near you as the Way, the Truth and the Life, because in Me you have true life.
Speak to the priests, My daughter, tell them not to let the people see them looking unhappy, but only when they have found happiness once more. Make them understand how ridiculous and unjust it is to embitter themselves over nothing. Help them to find happiness. Tell them that all creation and the history of salvation speaks to them of My Love for you all, for mankind. In a special way the face of one who loves Me is eloquent. How can someone teach about My Love with a sad or bitter look on their face? Let them be enlightened by joyfully drawing water from Me, as I am the fountain of joy… Let them ask My Spirit to make them messengers and placid witnesses of My Love!
