I Inspire Perfect Work,
You Are Free to Fulfill It or Not
God the Father
The beginning and lifetime of human actions is the motion that I imprint on all creatures. The man whom I have made free and autonomous does not think that his working, seeing, thinking, and even his suffering are actions dependent of a first cause that has control over all those things. But it is a most gentle control that produces unimpaired, the great gift I have given them: freedom. Because of that man moves freely, in spirit and in body. But while he makes full use of his freedom, he is moved by Me, he has the inclination but is not obligated because he acts freely.
There are involuntary movements before which the creature is not able to react, but they are either all Mine or all human. I will explain. In My infinite Love for the creature, I desire that sometimes actions be fulfilled without the usual defects, the customary renouncements, so that the creature may have in his assets, actions and thoughts that are perfectly similar to My Desire. Then I diffuse Myself in such a way that his work and desire is truly My work and My desire.
Certain manifestations that I bring about in My saints are an example of these things. But one should not object that their will is lacking in this, on the contrary. The will in these cases is fully adhered to Me and if it acts with obligation, for this reason it does not stop acting freely. This is the way it is in Heaven; when it is also done on earth, it is Heaven anticipated… These are what I have called involuntary things of Mine; therefore, that is the way they are.
But there are other things and they are the human things: the discourse that changes. If in the involuntary good things, the greatest part of the work is Mine; in the evil or human things, the greatest part is yours. And so the soul, having become totally inclined towards evil, can only act according to the bad habits that it has voluntarily and gradually acquired.
This is how the soul finds itself when it is completely with Me and when it is by itself.
But you know that upon creating, moving, and providing for My beloved ones, I have as an aim, mainly the Glory of My beloved Son. Furthermore, foreseeing that each one of you would not do much to fulfill My Desire, I created a creature so beautiful and holy that by herself she surpasses all creatures and alone gives more glory to My Son than all the others together. This creature is the shining mirror on which the Word reflects and, like all mirrors, reflects such rays of light and fire that it does not really seem to be a mirror but light and fire. He, My Son, could have many images of Himself, but one would be such that it would be confused with the original. Oh, how it pleases Me to reproduce the Word!
Do you see then what My Will points to and how petty is man’s reasoning? But, what is human reasoning in comparison to Divine Desire? Is love for oneself and one's reasoning not like the night in comparison to the radiant day that is My reasoning and My Desire...? How man argues over this point! But as long as he does not leave himself, he will have no peace. Renounce himself, lose himself in Me, dissolve himself in Me and the creature will live off Me…
