Lessons from Our
Lord for the World
Volume II Lesson #i40
January 24, 1990
My dear child, today I wish to
speak further on the Eucharist, My Presence in the host you receive.
My dear one, how I long for My
people to come and receive Me openly and sincerely. I wish for them to tell Me
their most intimate feelings, thoughts and worries. I wish for them to share
their joyful events, their sorrows and their struggles. I long to advise them,
counsel them and comfort them. O' if only they would realize that it is I
they receive and not a piece of man-made host. It is I, in My True
Presence, Who dwells in you each time you receive Me.
So many of My people and My
priests simply and routinely go through the motions. So many of My people, who
are My beloved ones, are so entangled and afflicted with "self"
issues! They do not come to share with Me, or allow Me to comfort or counsel
them with My Love. They complain about their own afflictions.
It is time My people
know the Truth and listen to Me!
I am here for them.
It is I Who
humbles Myself to be consecrated to them!
Could they give Me the moment to
receive My consecration, and allow My Presence to absorb their being? If My
people truly recognized Me in the host, they would not be so quick to leave,
and to wander in their thoughts after receiving My Precious Body and Blood. It
is only confirmation on how many of My people go through habitual motions and
routine actions, instead of true devotion and dedication!
Where is their commitment? I am
committed to them. I respect them. Cannot they be loyal to a true
friendship? I wish to assist them and help them in their times of need. They
must allow Me, and listen to Me. How, child, do you listen?
Other questions many of My people
ask: "How can I listen? What are the signs? How do I know I am being
obedient and listening?"
My response is: "How can I
tell them, if when they come to receive Me and they do not take the time to
allow Me to instruct, counsel, guide or fill them with My Love?
To listen is to first absorb Me,
and to allow Me to fill you with My Love. That is the first step. Speak to me
openly, sincerely, truthfully and intimately. Stop being obsessed with
self-image, problems and daily occurrences. Come openly to Me, and talk to Me!
Then My Peace will slowly be absorbed into you, and you will know that your
hearts are primed for counsel!
It begins with the Eucharist for
all those who desire reception of Me, and it continues with respectful
mannerisms and devoted faithfulness!
