They Are Only Enthusiastic about Tangible Things
14-Oct-96 (Atlanta-Conyers)
The Lord

Beloved one, soul that belongs to Me, leave your distractions and nourish yourself with My presence. I want you to arrange things so that you go back home soon. An activity is waiting for you that will please you greatly, because once more you will discover how much I expect of you.

I am preparing your soul for so many things! I fertilized the land for so many fruits, at times watering it with My tears and at others with yours! …

Later on.

I will not keep you for much longer. You are on holiday now and I am going to let you fully enjoy it. However, you have a few spare minutes and let us use them to carry on with our work.

Why has the veneration for My Divine Heart cooled of over the decades? This cooling off has been due to many complex factors: many people's love has grown cold, a lack of capacity to be enthusiastic about anything that is not tangible, a fondness for goods and pleasures, an impressive and cruel bombardment of the mind and heart with images and sounds. Finally, insufficient understanding of its theological foundation.

How many Saints were pleased to stop and contemplate My open side, at the gateway to salvation from where My Church, the Sacraments and all the wealth of graces spring.

Observe the New Testament and John, the evangelist of My Love who laid his head on My heart. Truly I tell you that whosoever wants to evangelize must first, like John, lay his head on My heart.

Read the Old Testament, that speaks of My ardent Love and of the image of God the Father of Israel, of the divine spouse who remained faithful to his first love despite the sins of the people, My image of the Good Shepherd.

When you should speak, let the unfathomable love that is shown in the great bitterness of My Passion enter your heart for a few minutes. As the sun reveals itself in its splendor, the beauty of the rose in its perfume and color, so fire is evident in your ardor. Reflect on your own, remember the wounds and how much I suffer for you…

I want you to enclose yourself in My open wound right now, close to My Heart that is intoxicated with love. Try to linger there, to stay there... Absorb My humanity. Ask Me to protect your heart from all false appearances of love.

Once you have steeped yourself in this slandered and reviled heart, in this Heart that has been treated so cruelly, so abjectly, then come out and speak and spread your devotion just as another Catalina did in Sienna… Margarita María, Juan Eudes…

Go to sleep, we have finished for today, My sweet little one…
