    Jesus Explains How to Love and to Possess Love

    Post by Poem



    Do you know how man can possess infinite love? By being so united to God, as to be all one with God. Then, as the creature disappears in the Creator, it is the Creator Who really acts, and He is infinite. And My apostles must be like that, all one with their God through the power of love, which is so close to the Origin as to dissolve in it. It is not the way in which you speak, but the way in which you love, that will convert hearts. Will you find sinners? Love them. Will you suffer because of disciples who go astray? Try to save them through love. Remember the parable of the lost sheep. Oh! for ever and ever it will be the sweet appeal made to sinners. But it will also be the definite order given to My priests. With every artifice, with every sacrifice, at the cost of losing your own lives in the attempt to save a soul, you must patiently go and look for those who are lost and bring them back to the Fold. Love will give you joy. It will say to you: "Be not afraid". It will give you such a power to expand all over the world, as I did not possess Myself. No longer is the love of future just people to be set as a seal on the heart and on the arm, as the Song of Songs says. But it is to be set in the heart. It must be the spur urging souls to all actions. And each action must be superabundance of charity, which is no longer satisfied with loving God or one's neighbour only mentally, but it enters the lists against the enemies of God, to love God and neighbour concretely, also through material deeds, which lead to wider and more perfect actions aiming at the redemption and sanctification of brothers.


    Through contemplation one loves God, through action one loves one's neighbour, but the two loves are not separated, because there is one love only, and loving our neighbour we love God Who orders this love and gave us our neighbour as a brother. Neither you nor Future priests will be able to say that you are My friends, if your charity and theirs is not entirely devoted to the salvation of souls, for whom I became incarnate and for whom I will suffer. I give you the example of how one must love. But you and those who will come after you, must do what I do. The new time has come. The time of love. I have come to cast this fire into hearts and it will grow greater after My Passion and Ascension, and it will inflame You when the Love of the Father and of the Son descends to consecrate you to your ministry.

    Book 3, chapter 379

    Peace be with you always
