Confidence « Why are you afraid, you men of little faith ? » (St. Mat 8-26)
« We have acknowledged the Love that God has for us and we have believed it ».(1 Jn 3-16) I desire men to rekindle their faith and love and to live in trust and intimacy with Him whom they love and who loves them.
“Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer” (Psalm 4,2) I want them to look for me within themselves for they know that the soul in the state of grace is the abode of the Holy Spirit.
And there they will find me, just as I am, that is, a God but a God of Love.
May they have more love than fear, may they believe in my Love and never doubt it…
When they are weighed down by their frailty, perhaps also by their faults, they are seized with sadness at the thought that I do not love them as before.
They have not understood my Love because it is precisely their frailty and their faults which make me stoop in Goodness towards them. And when, recognizing their helplessness and weakness, they humble themselves and come to me in full trust, it is then that they glorify me, even more than before their fall.
Would that men do not fear me… that sinners do not run away from me.
My Love never refuses to pardon those who humiliate themselves, especially those who ask for it in true confidence…
Likewise, these men do not honour me if they hesitate or doubt me when they pray for themselves or others. On the other hand, they glorify me when they expect with certainty that they will obtain from me what they ask for knowing full well that I cannot refuse them anything except what is not good for their soul..
When the centurion came to me begging me to heal his servant, he told me in great humility : « I am not worthy of receiving you in my house ». But, full of faith and trust, he added : « However, Lord, say but one word and my servant will be healed ». That man knew my Heart! He knew that I cannot resist the prayers of those who expect everything from Me. He has glorified Me greatly because he has joined a firm and entire confidence to his humility.
Yes, that man knew My Heart! It is through confidence that men obtain innumerable graces not only for themselves but also for others. And this is what I desire them to fully understand because I want everyone to reveal my Love to those who do not know it.
