“I have given the world the gift of passion. When a soul discovers something he delights in, he runs after it in a fury of passion. He excels; he is moved to heroic deeds; his ardor and zeal are evident to all. The Olympic athletes are a beautiful example of passion – of giving all to attain all.
The world has passionate followers excelling in a variety of endeavors. They award each other for their passionate pursuits and revel in the glory of deeds accomplished. Artists, composers, engineers, actors – they all have a great passion in their work.
Since I created passion, I also must have a passion. My Passion was accomplished on earth when I died for the sins of the world. I lived every moment of My existence on earth pursuing My Passion – the redemption of man. My Passion was completely unselfish and other-oriented. I did not pursue My Passion for My own glory or honor. My motivation was love. I love the men of earth. They are My Passion.
O souls, whom I love so passionately, do you passionately love Me in return? Do you think of Me, pursue My will, live with Me, and run in the way of My commandments? Am I your passion?
In Scripture, I stated that lukewarm souls make Me want to vomit them out of My mouth. Is it any wonder? In My Passion for souls, in the pain and suffering I endured for love of them, how can I endure such limpid lukewarmness? Rejection would be more tolerable than an ungrateful lukewarmness.
Observe the canonized saints. They were passionately in love with Me. They did not follow Me half-heartedly. They were fervent, responsive, dedicated, unselfish, and passionate in their love of Me. And I passionately loved them in return.
My beautiful souls of earth, fall passionately in love with Me and I will bring heaven to earth in your soul.”
