Love Is Not in the Books,
but in the Heart
Just as spring water, always clear and fresh, flows out of an open rock in the mountains, in like manner from My ever open Heart flows My Love for all mankind. Nevertheless, I have need of My children’s love… Just as a starving person has need of bread, and a thirsty one has need of water, I have need of Love.
The modern world is My Passion renewed. Even if all My priests were to abandon Me like My disciples abandoned Me and I remained alone with only one of them as I remained with only John at Golgotha, I shall renew the world.
I am letting Peter’s boat sink and then I will pull it out unscathed. My theologians and Teachers of the Law are the ones who speculate in the books in order to find the secular truths. But Love is not found in the pages of the books, and not even Faith. You have lost Love and, with Love, also the Faith, and now, you, like the ancient Teachers of Jerusalem, attempt to convince the people. One must accept the mysteries and, as such, live them. Faith is a gift from God that needs to be developed and increased with Love. The theologian searches for Love between the pages of the book; but the mystical soul, My spouse, finds it planted in her heart, as well as the nails were driven into My Flesh.
The renovation will be like a new creation and, then, many will believe in Me. Out of so much evil, I will manifest so much good.
Now you moan like a mother in the pain of birth. The whole Church, the Pope, the people of God cry and are sadden before so much sorrow, so much disorder that weighs upon all mankind. But when the new man will be born, when the world will have been renewed in its sorrow and in its grief, then his cry will turn into great joy. This will be the new day, the new age that finally will substitute hate for love and men will truly become brothers among themselves and in My Name.
Do not oppress God’s Word nor keep it from being known, because His Word is eternal, like eternal is His Being. Nothing has changed in Me. I am Mercy, Forgiveness, and Love. The Good Shepherd watches over His flock and His sheep will hear His Voice, and it will become one sheepfold under one Shepherd. Time does not count; what counts is eternity. When everything seems lost, that is when everything is won. Do not be afraid, My little flock; My name is Redeemer and Savior.
Like My Apostles, after having suffered so much for Me, were messengers of the good news, likewise this generation, that suffers and is anguished, will be the fertile seed of a new life that is being prepared for the world.
Bear the heavy burden of each other. Upon the sorrows that at this moment afflict the Church, sorrows caused by the defection of consecrated souls, spread, My child, the compassionate veil of your tears, and pour over My feet, like Magdalene did, the perfume of your prayers so that many sins can be forgiven.
The temptations against the virtue of purity are always very strong, and without any special grace, it is difficult for the soul to resist. This is why the confessors must be merciful with these souls, and help them in every way to rise up with much confidence in Me, Who is able to and wants to readmit them to the celestial banquet.
My Pope is the Apostle of the people. If only his word were to be heard… I shall send the Holy Spirit to renew the face of the earth, and it will be like a second Pentecost. Have you seen the Heart whose beams touched the earth? Well, that is how it will be. From My Heart will depart the great light to illuminate all people who lie in the shadow of sin and death.
The Church in triumph: The new seed is here. This means to set in motion all the powers of the Church.
