Jesus: “I give you a word to speak-that word is LOVE.”
BVM: “Child, are you willing to suffer? I do not take joy in suffering for its own sake, but you can purchase a great deal if you offer it with love. Remember, suffering is the currency of love; joy is its reward.”
FIAT! Let it me done to me as our Lord desires. But never leave me!
1 Corinthians 13:1-2 If I speak in human and angelic tongues but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing.
“My beloved, yes there is much to come, much suffering, much toil, much to tempt my children to despair. But there is one thing that never changes, one obligation that never ceases-love. If charity fails in the human heart, then all is truly lost. Be on your guard! If love is not your guide and master you will be in grave peril. But if love guides your every action, your every decision, all your thoughts, words, and deeds, then you will reap benefits far in excess of what you sow. Keep this thought always before you. Act with love and you will never be wrong. Love led me to the cross. But the benefits won for the human race are incalculable. Do not be afraid to love and do not count the cost. Link your life and death to mine and you will know unending joy.”
Lord Jesus, your love is infinite and beyond our comprehension. Yet you give it to us freely and generously, without limit. Jesus I link all that I am and all that I have to your life, death and resurrection, and I offer it to the Father for the sake of pure love. Jesus I love you! Save souls!
