The Surest Road To God:
God encompasses all, penetrates all, and fills all. I am your sorrowful Mother. I know your desire to better comprehend your God in order to love Him more. I want to tell you what God is, to the extent that you can conceive Him.
God is eternal and from His eternity, being Father, He has in Himself His Son, who is also eternal. From the unity of the Father and the Son, lives the Holy Spirit that is the Love of both, the three forming one Divinity.
One is, then, His Will, His power, and one His Mercy. This unity in Love is always directed to the only end, which is God. Immense in His simplicity, filling all that exists, penetrating it all, living in everything and in everything encompassing the distance, dominating all the spaces…
God is Light and with it He illuminates everything created. God is Life, for from Him beings have received it. God is Love and because of that Love, the Son became man; and with His Blood rescued humanity that offends Him, repaying Him for this incomparable sacrifice with hatred and incredible offenses.
Even though God is a person, He is not a creature. His essence is life itself, all life takes life out of His very essence. Some of this has been given to you to contemplate; but the human eye cannot see more than God permits.
God, center and cause of all things, who encloses unto Himself the most perfect unity and from whose unity all that, which coming from that center that is God Himself, is unified in this same beginning: the contemplation of this ineffable mystery that God gives to those who love Him till the end.
Now, daughter, many roads lead to God, but none as sure as humility. God, He Himself humanized, became humble to die crucified. I myself was exalted to Mother of God for loving humility.
No creature can boast of the good that may be in her nor of the potential of her mind because, being a creature of God, to Him she owes what she is, how much she has; therefore, only He should be addressed as the supreme and only end.
Make an effort to always be humble and simple, and you shall have God with you and in you. Let Him do with you as He wishes, so that you will always be able to be sure that it is for your well-being. You will then understand the immense treasure it is to possess God.
I assure you, my daughter, living in God and for God, may it be in pain or infirmity, sadness or happiness, and searching for Him in everything, you will have the certainty of finding Him at the end and find Him with open arms…
