A Call to Souls

I am Love! My Heart can no longer contain its devouring flames. I love souls so dearly that I have sacrificed My life for them. It is this love that keeps Me a prisoner in the tabernacle. For nearly twenty centuries I have dwelt there, night and day, veiled under the species of Bread and concealed in the small white Host, bearing through love, neglect, solitude, contempt, blasphemies, outrages, sacrileges

I am God, but a God of love! I am a Father, but a Father full of compassion and never harsh. My Heart is infinitely wise, and knowing human frailty and infirmity, stoops to poor sinners with infinite mercy.

Yes, I am that Jesus who loves souls tenderly... Behold this Heart that never ceases calling them, guarding them, and caring for them... Behold this Heart on fire with longing for their love... My Heart is not only an abyss of love: It is also an abyss of mercy; and knowing as I do that even My closest friends are not exempt from human frailties, I will each of their actions, however insignificant, to be clothed through Me with immense value for the help of those in need and for the salvation of sinners.

I desire that My love should be the sun to enlighten and heat to reanimate souls. I want all the world to recognize in Me a God of mercy and of love. I wish that everywhere My desire to forgive and save souls should be read, and that not even the most wretched be kept back by fear! nor the most guilty fly from Me... Let them all come. I await them with open arms like the most affectionate of fathers in order to impart life and true happiness to them.

Hope obtains innumerable graces for self and for others. I want this to be thoroughly understood, so that My Heart’s goodness may be revealed to those poor souls who as yet do not know Me...

Profanation of Sunday an Injustice

A farmer ridiculed his neighbor because he did not, like himself, work on Sundays, but attended Mass. "Suppose," said the neighbor, "I have seven shillings in my pocket, and meeting a poor man on the way I gave him six, what would you say?" "Well," said the farmer, "you would be very generous and would deserve every thanks." "But if instead of thanking me, he threw me down and robbed me of my last shilling, what then?" "Why, such a man would deserve to be hanged!" "Friend," replied the neighbor, "that's your very case: God has given you six days to labor in, and has reserved only the seventh to Himself, and commands us to sanctify it. And you, instead of being thankful for His gifts and respecting His Will, you rob Him even of the seventh day. Are the two cases not alike?" The farmer agreed; he admitted his fault and corrected it.
