Love of My sorrows, I want us to talk about Heaven. The place of which you must talk to encourage My children to work toward its conquest... I transfigured before My apostles so they would see the beauty of My divine face and what irradiates from it.

Heaven, My children, is a good so great, that I wanted to die on the Cross to open it up to you. Goods, joys and sweetness can be conquered, but you would not understand it even if I explained it. Read 1 Corinthians 2,9.

Think, if in this world there are things that come to you and please your senses, how many others are there that afflict them. If you like the light of day, the dark of night saddens you; if spring and fall please you, the cold of winter and the heat of summer afflicts you. Add to this the pains and preoccupations caused by illnesses, persecutions, the discomforts of poverty... the anguishes of the spirit, the fears, the demon’s temptations, the anxiety of awareness, the uncertainty of eternal salvation.

In Heaven there is no death, no fear of dying; no pain nor illness, no poverty, no heat. There is just an eternal day that is always calm, a continuously blooming and delicious spring because everybody loves each other tenderly, and each enjoys the good of the other as his own. In Heaven there is no fear of getting lost, because the soul, confirmed in divine grace, cannot sin or lose itself anymore.

Everything you can desire is there, My beloved ones... Everything is new: the beauty, the joy, everything will satiate your desires. Seeing that magnificent city that is so beautiful will satiate the sight. You will see that the beauty of the inhabitants gives a new splendor to the beauty of the city because they all dress like kings, they are kings.

What joy you will feel in seeing My Mother, who allows you to contemplate her, more beautiful than all! Hear her sing, praising her God!

All this is minor happiness in Heaven. The main delight is that we will see each other face to face.

The reward promised to you is not only beauty, harmony and other good things, but I, Myself, being seen by the blessed ones. So, joys of the soul have advantage over joys of the senses.

To love Me even in this life, is it not a sweet thing? Can you imagine how much sweetness rejoicing in Me will produce? How much sweetness a soul experiences in which My Father manifests through prayer His goodness, His Mercy and especially the Love I demonstrated in My Passion? What will happen then when this veil is lifted and you can see Us face to face? You will contemplate all Our beauty, Our power, Our perfection, all the Love We have for you.

The greatest affliction of souls who love Me, is fear of not loving Me and not being loved by Me. But in Heaven, souls are sure they love and are loved by Me. They see that I embrace them with immense Love and that My Love will never end. That love grows then with the conviction of how much I loved them when I offered Myself in sacrifice for them on the wood of the Cross and I turned Myself into sustenance, into food, in the Eucharist.

It is there when the soul will see clearly all the graces I have granted to preserve it from sin and attract it to My Love. It will see that those afflictions, that poverty, those illnesses, the persecutions it considered misfortunes, were just love and the means by which I lead it to Paradise.

The soul will see all the amorous inspirations and Mercy I shed over it, after it despised Me with its sins. It will see so many souls, condemned in the abyss of Hell, maybe less guilty than itself and it will rejoice at seeing itself saved and secure.

My beloved ones, the pleasures of the world cannot satiate your desires. In the beginning they intoxicate your senses, but little by little your senses become dulled and the pleasures cease to thrill you. On the other hand, goods from Heaven always satiate and leave the heart content. And although they satiate completely, they always seem new, always delight, are always desired, always obtained. In this way, desire does not generate distaste because it is always satisfied and satisfaction does not generate distaste, because it always comes together with desire. That is why the soul is always satiated and always wishing for those joys: Just as the condemned are cups full of anger, the blessed are cups full of Mercy and joy because they have nothing else to desire.

Believe Me, My beloved ones, saints and martyrs say they have done little to get to Heaven. What are all your sufferings compared to that sea of eternal joy, in which you will remain forever?

Resolve, My beloved ones, to suffer patiently whatever you must suffer in the time that is left, because all your suffering is little and nothing compares to glory of Heaven.

When the sorrows of life afflict you, look up to Heaven and console yourselves with the hope of Paradise. My Mother awaits you there, I await you there, with the crown in My hand, to crown you as kings of that eternal Kingdom...

Ask, My beloved ones, for the grace of perseverance in your conversion. Those who entrust themselves to My Mother, will obtain that grace. Meditate on My Passion and ask My Angel to comfort you and give you strength...
