Be Happy if You See That
They Hurt You, Because Then I Look at You with Pleasure
Flower of My Passion, remain close to Mine. I will always give all of Myself to you, since you give yourself to Me. The granaries will be opened for you and you will be satiated. In My Kingdom you will no longer be hungry or thirsty for justice; your cup will be full and fulfilled. It is now full here below; it only needs to be leveled.
I want you to surrender yourself, without knowing that you are doing it! My Father, who watches in silence, will know how to reward you. Surrendering to Me is serene happiness for the heart; I will not abandon you. Do not fear, My daughter; I want you to fortify your heart; you have walked a road unknown to you. How could I not love you? You take care of My interests with love. You must bear everything with faith and valor; fulfilling your own duties is to give Christ’s testimony.
They want to break the covenants of alliance with Jesus, and to get to this they have to be renegades. Oh, if you could only measure the width, height, length, and profundity of My Heart’s Mercy! Nothing can separate the creature from his Creator, except an absolute negation; a determined will to hate Me instead of loving Me.
I am always in your heart, day and night; and there I have My throne because that is the place of My repose, My chosen field, My preferred garden in which I have placed My pleasure. When I take possession of a soul, I make of it a masterpiece of grace.
From time to time, civilizations have need of renewal. History is full of examples. The old ones are overthrown; new ones are built, and this is the case with the present day civilization. Having refused the Light, men deserve the punishment of darkness…
Have peace in your heart, daughter; through the way of love and pain you will get to perfect union with Me. I have chosen you for this. But do not fear, I shall not leave you an orphan. I have a field that I must cultivate; this field is Mine. I must gather its fruit; souls must be shaken. Priests in the confessional should pay attention to this.
Convince yourself, My daughter, God is never in a hurry. My power is revealed in impotence. The more humble and rejected, hidden and forgotten is a soul, the more I look for it with My Love in order to unite Me to it. Be happy if you see that they hurt you, because then I look at you with pleasure. Is God’s Love not enough for you? What else do you seek, if the riches of Heaven and earth are locked up in Me? Have you not told Me that for you, Jesus is everything? Fine, live only for Me in this world; really, you do not need anything else.
