I Have Taken You and Bound
You to My Will
Raise that spirit, love of My Passion. Here is your Teacher, always be a good student. Every delight is found next to My Heart, and whoever comes near it, will remain captive in My Love.
Not every creature of Mine is chosen to speak of this delight, of this love. Actually, I point out with fire the ones that I have selected beforehand and I love them, love them so much, because among them are the ones that alleviate My ardent thirst.
True love must be expanded and not repressed within; its Divine nature compels whoever possesses this love to diffuse it and this in perfect similarity to the Father who, loving infinitely, desires infinitely that His Love be known.
I have taken you and bound you to My Will, and I have conferred in you the dignity that belongs to you, My child, to you, brother, to you, My true lover. I have seen that My work bears fruit, that is why I want to embellish it this day in which you exalt and exult for Me. Yes, exalt Who created you, and exult for Him Who redeemed and loved you. My child, how much tenderness in your Father’s Heart on this night of love, always so much tenderness, but I confess that especially this day I have waited anxiously to give you My Love. It is so lovely to be here in this place reserved for our encounters! It consoles Me so much when you repeat that you love Me. Tell Me many times! Console this thirst of love that flows out of My Heart like an abundant river in search of watersheds to nourish its existence!
You always want Me to tell you about Myself and I do it reminding you of what can help you. My Love is manifested like this on earth and only like this will you be able to know Me. I am the essence, the truth, the perfect paternity that has adopted you in a Divine way, and that has nothing to do with the human. Your Father is greater than what you can imagine.
My Father begot Me, I have made everyone My brother and I repose in you in order to love My Father, renewing Myself in those who want. You are placed between Him and Me, but you do not appear because it is I who must appear.
My affiliation is the one that must be exalted and known. When I dwell, I communicate My Light; that is why I am the One who appears before My Father and why He exalts Me. When I impute to you My merits and I justify you before Him; it is also I the One who appears and, in this, He is pleased. The grace gives you the appearance that is acceptable to the Father because in it He sees Me.
Thus I can tell you about Me and you comprehend that this is the best thing that has happened in the world because nothing is greater than what is made liken to Me.
My loved one, if you speak of Me it is because I move you and I live in you. So, remain in peace and My Will will be fulfilled. I have delivered you from Satan’s dominion; I have the right and pleasure to renew Myself in you.
Loving soul, it is I who lights and grants the fire of love that in the Word of the Holy Trinity is diffused in you. I have had to put in effect a slow persuasion to bring you into My arms, but now that you are in them, you will not leave Me because more and more I vigorously impart to you My Will of unity.
I am Love, you the small love; I am fire, you My kindling that I must burn. I am honey, you the cup that must hold it; I am meekness, you the channel in which I have put Myself. The origin of My life is Jesus: Me.
The movement of Jesus in you is given by the Father. You make a circle around the three of Us and you happily revolve embraced in continuous attraction to Us. Always revolve like that; even more rapidly, until We and you shall be one.
