|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!
