How I Love Those Who
I want you to be in peace, to have full confidence. Am I not here with you? I am the one who guides you, who leads you. Do you think that you yourself would resolve the problems that confront you? I want to always make use of you, even in those dark moments in which you think you are useless in everything.
Love of My sorrows, beloved child of Mine, why do you worry so much about what you cannot solve? Trust in your God… Love Me and pray, atone… The transgression to heaven is so great, that a second of a day does not exist in which the Blessed Trinity is not offended. Why do you all hurt Me? Have I not given you even My last breath? Which one of you would do for your brother a thousandth part of what My Love did for you?
Never go away from the door of My Heart; do not stop in the battle for My greater glory. Your nothingness united to My grandeur should fill you with strength!
Do you know why they attack My works? Because of meanness, easily affected distrust, and convenience. I will answer with the humility of a mocked and misunderstood God, but the bow cannot always be taut.
I like to recognize in you what the world calls craziness. Since when have you worried because of "what will people say?" Why are you going to start now?
Do not lose faith on account of the snares of the devil. I know by name those that ignore My real name: Love. They live their lives, their poor lives, and no one shoulders their responsibilities toward Me. More and more each day they are lost and, with them, those I have entrusted to them. They cannot even save themselves.
Do not alter, not even a centimeter, the course of your feet from the road that I have created for you: the return of love to My Eucharistic Heart. I know you are very weak, and that I have to support you at every instant, but… it pleases Me so much to do it!
Pay attention, little one, it is not your moment; maintain reserve with your insignias [stigmata]. I do not want anyone to touch My seal, not now that it is the beginning of My union with you. Do not give explanations, let them think what they want, if indeed at the end what I dispose will be done… Disappear on the designated days, pray a lot; I desire that they visit you to pray together, and not visit you out of curiosity.
How you comfort My heart! How I love those that comfort Me like that! Do you want to console Me even more? Pray, stop the pain that they are going to cause Me… Poor children of Mine, My little ones, the ones that will have to sacrifice themselves… The corruption of the great ones has already topped the number of the defenseless ones…
