Love Is To Submit

O soul of Mine, you have hidden yourself in My Passion. How sweet it is to your Savior to sing your victory! You are blood of My Blood, life of My Life, even more so, you are precisely the cause of My Victory. I remained hung on the Cross, not for My glory, but for the glory of My Father. I gave all of Myself for His happiness, and His happiness is the conquest of those whom He had lost. Thus I sing your victory, that is to say, for the glory of the Father, since I live and glorify each instant the Life and the Glory of He who sent Me to you.

Everyone know: I love nothing more than to please My Father. That is why I shall glorify all who will make Him happy, because in that joy is the Divine Life that goes from the Father to the Son, and return from the Son to the Father through the Spirit of Love.

Love Me; love Me greatly, My daughter. Think of loving as renouncing your own will, renouncing and giving yourself to your loved one, suffering for him however much is necessary, for that love that he gives.

To love is to submit, to make oneself so small until allowing oneself to be stepped on, and to be spurned even by the most despicable creature, if that should be the case. To love is to put oneself in the last place, renouncing even one’s own merits and to bear without reproach, that unjustifiably others appropriate, and doing it for the loved one, to merit his love.

I did this. I did good; I helped the needy; I raised the dead, and I had nothing more than disloyalty and ungratefulness for recompense.

Love Me, give of yourself completely and voluntarily. Suffer with Me, and also resist that pain. Will you not want to do it? The world deliberately throws itself into the abyss, without accepting the help that My Heart offers. Afterwards it will cry and despair; humanity will groan under the deserved lashing.

One must atone and pray because the punishment will come; but if you might do penance, the souls would entrust themselves to My Heart.

I promise in the tenderness and greatness of My Love, to save men from the rigor of Divine Justice, taking them to a secure port, where neither terror nor death can hurt them... Suffer, atone with Me.
