You Still Have Much to Suffer
Beloved one, what are you amazed at? None of My children should be astonished to know that I love them? This love is so immense that I love them so much that I even chase them with My Love... You recognize it, you enjoy it, because you are permanently talking to Me, because you feel My nearness when you have to speak well or badly of people, but, how many do what you do?
I want you to keep away right now, to observe from afar, analyze, remember things, the moments of intimacy with Me; the moments in which My Grace has allowed you to discover the devil’s tricks. However, I do not want you to make judgements, to reach your own conclusions and even less for them to cause a rift between you and other people... I tell you; I repeat to you: You are the chosen one of My loving Heart to take My compassionate Love to the people in this part of the world and, through you, I will be pouring Mercy on the souls of those who want to open the doors to their little hearts to Me.
Move away from envy, run from the discord that has gained a place in the hearts of some of My chosen children. Be grateful for so many benefits and so much love poured on you in this torrent of Love... Whenever you participate in My Life and in My Passion, you should remember how unworthy you are of this choice which has, so splendidly, shown its source: My Mercy. Be grateful for your conversion and the intimate friendship I share with you. A joy becomes a genuine marvel when the soul admits that it has sinned and it knows that just as it is, I seek its love to glory in it, to make from that clay, a magnificent sculpture, the finest porcelain.
You still have much to suffer. These sufferings will reach you by means of people with whom we shared so much good... Do not worry: the Pharisees were always amazed at the love and kindness I would show the publicans and sinners. They were shocked because they thought that they did not deserve it. He who thinks that he can receive more of God’s Love than others through his own merit is committing a grave sin... I accepted the love of the woman who had sinned, because it sprang from a humble, grateful heart. I grant so much more to that soul than what it asks for, trusting that since it is aware of and grateful for this totally unmerited love, it will know how to correspond with me more and more. Read Luke 7,47 and you will better understand what I am saying. This means that a person who considers that, after all, there is not much for Me to forgive, will certainly feel uncomfortable in the Kingdom of My redeemed Love.
A perfect soul will say: I am astonished and amazed because God loves me like this, me, a sinner, creating links of saving solidarity with all sinners. And if the Lord loves me like this, then I must be grateful because He loves us sinners in this way and He unites me to the choirs of praise of His Mercy.
