Those Who Do Not Bear Their Cross With Love Cannot Follow me
The Lord

So, did you not like the talk? Of course you did. Learn, you already have the theory and the practice, everything before your eyes, before your being to savor it...

You see how your God is teaching you, repeating to you, telling you things, methods, words again... Now there will be no excuses, you have everything.

Go ahead, My children!

Later on

The world is nothing without Me, but is everything with Me, therefore you must learn to find a quiet, intimate time with My enveloping Love. Spend time alone and let the reality of My Being dominate your solitude, the place of your pride... Be liberated from worries, but keep your conscience free. Little ones, do not be distracted by the world’s emotions, not even for a few minutes or hours.

Very soon you will see that you are very special for your Lord, created individually in My Love. Do not resist internal change, since I am creating a new identity for each one of you: the small identity of your true selves…

Support each other, help each other, without selfishness, without question, without arguing, in the same way that I support you, help you …

Work, you cannot live without working. If I, the Son of God, worked in this world to earn My living, then you should copy Me... Man cannot live in idleness, man must eat with the sweat of his brow if he wants to be worthy of the Father's promises...

My children, live in peace, fill yourselves with patience for each other and your kin. The Trinity cannot be where impatience exists... Am I not patient with you?

I look at the good and bad inside you. The good, however small, can be the yeast that brings a lot of good and, with it, the conversion of those who are living in evil right now.

Do not try to guess what My plans are, just trust in Me. I will guide and look after you.

You are Mine and I want you to give Me even the smallest piece of love that you have in your hearts to make it grow.

Come to Me with your doubts, worries and your small love.

Each of you should bear the small Cross that I give you. Those who do not bear their Cross with love cannot follow Me.
