My Heart, Shaken by Sin, Sweats Blood
The Lord

Love of My pains, let us do some work... What some scientists have guessed about the progressive loss of energy on the part of the world and of the consequent death through numbness, is a pale image of the threat that is much worse and that hangs over humanity: man's numbness from the lack of love.

Be more careful, you are easily distracted. Let us pray...

(He makes me pray the Lord's Prayer, a Hail Mary and the Gloria, and tells me to write all this down.)

Let us continue. The Son of Man, I, the Son of God, whose Heart beats and bleeds for you, whose cordial Love brings you insuperable revelation of paternal Love. I, with My ardent Love, do not present Myself as a model and end of all love, but I come to immerse you in My Love.

My Father and I want to see in you a great desire to worship Love, to praise it, to love it together will all the true lovers of My Heart, to a greater extent than those who allow their hearts to grow cold.

I want to see your capacity to love purified and reinforced. I want My Love to conquer your hearts too. I want My Heart to love men also in their hearts and through their hearts.

If the face of someone in love lights up when they see their loved one, their hearts should die of pleasure when they know that the happiness of those in love is only a symbol of My looking at them with affectionate eyes… On seeing the smile of a beloved child - a smile that is already a response to a mutual love - parents' hearts beat faster. Only those who are stupid, proud, do not know that this comes from the Creator of everything.

But all this is just a prelude to the infinitely greater revelation of the Love of the Father in My incarnation. Creation is already a manifestation of the eternal Word, to which My Father communicates His whole Being, all His Love, and for whom everything has been done.

God enters without reserve into the misery of the incarnate Son. He is on the side of the poor and of the small, so that they can recognize the true riches for which He Himself is preparing them.

And I, share their weariness, their disappointments, their fragility. I bear the burden of their sins. I am so interested in their misery that My compassionate Heart that has been shaken by sin sweats blood in Gethsemane…
