Transcript

  1. Confidence<br />«  Why are you afraid, you men of little faith ? »<br />(St. Mat 8-26)<br />
  2. « We have acknowledged the Love that God has for us and we have believed it ».(1 Jn 3-16)<br />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. <br />
  3. “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)<br />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.<br /> <br />And there they will find me, just as I am, that is, a God but a God of Love. <br /> <br />
  4. May they have more love than fear,<br /> may they believe in my Love<br /> and never doubt it…<br /> <br /> <br />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.<br />
  5. They have not understood my Love because it is precisely their frailty and their faults which make me stoop in Goodness towards them.<br />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.<br />
  6. Would that men do not fear me…<br />that sinners do not run away from me. <br /> <br />My Love never refuses to pardon those who humiliate themselves, especially those who ask for it in true confidence…<br />
  7. Likewise, these men do not honour me if they hesitate or doubt me when they pray for themselves or others. <br />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..<br />
  8. When the centurion came to me begging me to heal his servant, he told me in great humility : <br />« I am not worthy of receiving you in my house ».  <br />But, full of faith and trust, he added :<br />« However, Lord, say but one word and my servant will be healed ». <br />That man knew my Heart!<br />He knew that I cannot resist the prayers of those who expect everything from Me.<br />He has glorified Me greatly because he has joined a firm and entire confidence to his humility.<br />
  9. Yes, that man knew My Heart!<br />It is through confidence that men obtain innumerable graces not only for themselves but also for others.<br />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.<br />
