You Are Instruments of Love and
(Personal message for R., a member of the Prayer Group)
May peace and My gratitude be with you...
Do you realize, My son, that you are the instrument through which My Message of Love and Mercy will be recognized? With the work you have just done and that I have lovingly placed in your hands, through this beloved daughter, you will be capable of moving the flawed consciences of many of My children... I Have searched for you and have waited for you for a long time. You are sensitive, loving, and I needed you to fight against indifference. You are generous and I needed you to fight against selfishness. You are trusting and I needed you to fight against pessimism. You are a warm soul and I needed you to fight against remissness and cowardice. You were very dear to Me.
I take pleasure in fulfilling any apparent emptiness My way. If over the last few days your body has been a focus of suffering, your soul has been a radiant focus of My loving presence in you... Beloved son, I bless your bread, I bless your family, I bless the fire that warms your home. I bless your daily journey, the work for your sustenance and that of other children. I bless the longings, desires and hopes of your heart in favor of My Glory... If you love Me in little things, I will love you and fulfill you in the greatest ones. Do not fear to be small at every moment, because sanctification of the just lies in his humility.
Today I have a special gift: a wonderful life plan for your evangelical spirit and complete abandonment to My Will... Soon the foreseen days will arrive and will put in My place a dirty imitation that is worth nothing. The Spirit of Love, of Truth, of Mercy will have the last word and, for My blessed Cross and My painful wounds, It will unite men in a single, glorious body near My Tabernacles. For this I need many beloved children to help Me find again and unite My lambs, but hearts like yours that decide to do it, are few.
I wanted you to witness the pain that oppresses Me day after day, and little by little I have brought about this moment in which My true soldiers will face the struggle against the power of darkness. You have seen My pain; you have seen My face and My wounds. That commits you to higher struggles for My cause, but do not fear; I will hold you. I will lift your spirit when the Evil One mistreats you. I will cover you and send My angels to cover you. You will not lack help, although at times, it will seem so.
Vote for trust, I will never fail you. Do not fear deceit if you put your loving trust in My Heart. It will always be open for you. Ask My Spirit for discernment and, as up until now, you will not lack this precious gift; It will cover you; you will know how to follow in My footsteps in truth. Trust the Divine Will of My Father, praise Him as you start your day and leave your daily fatigues to Me, since I, as His Son, will make your work fruitful.
Talk to the world about Sacramental confession, that fountain of saving water that awaits everybody, and whoever is immersed in this water will be protected from enemies of the soul. I solemnly promise you, that your voice, like a spark of fire, will fulfill its mission in the midst of the cruel battle. Your guide, the morning Star, will go before you lighting up the paths, cutting the darkness, which will dissipate because it cannot withstand the force of the Divine Light.
Talk about My presence in the Eucharist... Man knows he is blind when trying to solve so many problems. He knows by experience his ability to fall and go under, his inability to rise. He knows that if his weak human strength opposes so many enemies surrounding him, he will be conquered in mortal combat. But what man does not want to know is that help can be found in God. He does not want to accept that I am in the Tabernacle and that I long to dwell in the heart of all My children. That is why they shrink from taking Communion. If he acted in a rational way, he would hasten to find Me, to join Me in the way, the truth, the life that are one and the same as Me. Unfortunately, he invents a multitude of elaborate excuses to distance himself from the altar, but deep inside he repeats himself the same injustices of those guests invited to the great supper that I speak of in My Gospel.
Between sinners and Me in the Sacred Sacrament lies a dark sea with airs of pride, that is sent from hell itself by the father of pride. A sea of mire, like the one produced by the pleasures of the senses; a sea of melted gold, formed by the idolatrous greed of the golden calf; a sea of blood, like the one spilled by hatred in the revengeful soul. How can My Heart become part of the hearts of such unwilling men? Despite everything, they must try to receive Me, so they will not become deaf to the voices of their consciences, which tell them they cannot live without Me.
Tell them that I am calling them: Come, eat, because My Body does not live in those who do not eat... If only men would understand who it is that is inviting and leading them. If only they could comprehend the splendid palace to which they have been invited, taste the tenderness of the meal offered to them, they would find out it embraces all the delights and is sweeter than honey, whiter than milk, more generous than wine and more delicate than wheat bread. In spite of this, men continue to cry out that they are starving, when they have bread from Heaven within their grasp.
Talk about the need for penitence that exists today, the world needs it more than ever. What is more, the penitence required today is that of affection, which is the greatest penitence of all: love for humanity is the penitence imposed for this century of evil.
My Heart lives a thousand deaths, for each minute the cruel martyrdom to which the sins of indifference and infidelity carried Me, revives in Me. My Spirit suffers because even today man has not understood why I sacrificed Myself and gave Myself to the martyrdom of the Cross... Announce it to the world, those who are Mine refuse to talk about it.
Beloved one, I am with you, as I am with the simple of heart, with those who adopt My meekness, with those who silence their hearts to criticism and do not become echoes of calumnies that destroy lives... Your journey is hard, may your heart not falter, and may your fervor and enthusiasm in your work not diminish. You cannot even begin to imagine the marvel of your reward. I grant part of it to you in your worldly life to encourage you to carry on the struggle with greater determination... If you have placed everything in My hands, everything will be prepared and completed by Me.
Thank you, My son. Your Lord thanks you and pours an abundant rain of graces over you and yours. Special graces received by those who abandon the worldly races and affairs, considering them as secondary, for My Love, for the work in My Vineyard.
With your eyes closed, concentrate for a moment and see yourself, look into the depth of your heart and you will see the shine of the radiant light that sustains you, the light of God that has transmitted energy and life to you, which is the reason for existence itself. Praise and contemplate the beauty, clarity and internal light of My Love, the deepness of My Spirit in you. Superiority of a soul is secured by its discretion, understanding, peacefulness, incitement to goodness and active loyalty to My teaching. When the world tries to seduce your soul with the attractiveness of pleasure and glory, place My Heart as a seal over your heart...
Help My chosen daughter along the path I have pointed out to her (I did not want to write this part and He repeated the same thing to me twice). I want her to take to the world the sublime testimony of My Love for it. My presence will become more noticeable to both of your humanities, completely overflowing them. It is up to Me to help you, support you in your work. Ties contracted in spiritual friendships are indestructible.
Only the work of the laymen can bring the consecrated together, today when avarice, distrust, susceptibility and convenience walk about the corridors of convents, seminaries, religious orders... They have hardened their heart, turning them into rocks... I have asked the group to organize the Great Crusade of Love. For this I have given them a treaty of Love and Mercy. Once more, a lack of responsibility has gagged My wishes, and My plans have been postponed... Will you please take charge of it?
Do not lose your Grace, because I want to polish your soul to confirm it in the golden book of My blessed souls. I promise those who give Me their fidelity, to communicate to them an increasingly higher aspiration towards spiritual life. I skillfully handle the instruments I choose... Come into My Heart, take out from it all its anguishes with your resolute work and let its flames envelop your spirit uniting it to Mine as a whole.
