          Union with God is an upward journey of the heart, as each step of faith draws you closer to My most Sacred Heart.  The results seem invisible, but daily the flesh is dying and the spirit is being renewed.

          Love begets union.  Passionate love begets passionate union.  The more you desire Me, the closer our hearts are knit together in love.

          Speak to Me incessantly.  Your loving praises rise as a sweet incense before My holy throne.  I desire a love without limit, a pure affection, a sincere purpose of amendment, true contrition, a seeking heart.

          The awareness of My Presence brings the reward of transformation.  Simply to set your mind on Heaven changes and renews your spirit.  Such a small price to pay for such great rewards.

          The banishment and exile of life prevent man from seeing clearly.  His eyes were blinded on that fateful day of Adam’s fall from grace.  Henceforth, all men need to appear before Me, begging the grace of eyes to see and ears to hear before they can recognize Heaven.  I anoint My children with eye salve to open their blinded eyes to the reality of eternity with God.

          Each moment aware of My Presence is another step to clarity of sight.  Are you wasting time on things of naught when you can daily be growing in holiness by centering your thoughts and activities on Me?  Ponder this.  What do you spend time on?  Do you really have anything worthwhile to show for these precious hours wasted?

          Ask Me how to spend your time.  I can teach you the ways of Heaven, so diametrically opposed to man’s natural inclinations.  Since I am the fountain of all wisdom, I implore you to come to Me with every question and concern you have, especially in matters of spirituality.  “I will lead you and guide you in the way you should walk.”

          I am always here for you.  Do not look for answers from man.  Those answers are biased and unstable.  “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”  Come to Me for salvation.”

          “I want souls of happiness to serve me.  Their eager anticipation to abandon all to embrace My will pleases Me greatly.  No job, however small, will be unrewarded.  Man strays from the path when he fails to fulfill the duties wherein I have placed him.  He is to sanctify every duty, no matter how trivial or mundane.  He can spill lavish amounts of perfume on the most monotonous of tasks and this will please Me more than those done for praise of men.

          Yes, even changing a diaper is a beautiful work done in My Name.  Haven’t I told you countless times that My ways are not your ways?  How many souls skip over the works of My will in their daily lives striving for the great activities, not realizing that they have not really accomplished anything commendable in My eyes?  I do not see as man sees.  The more secret, arduous and lowly a work is, the more highly do I esteem it.

          Man pursues deeds to be noticed, to be admired, great deeds of heroic perseverance.  I value simple tasks done in humility flavored with great love and kindness.

          O men of the world, when will you stop to learn of Me?  My ways are so different than your ways.  My values are almost the opposite of yours.

          You are running on a treadmill, pursuing the same paths over and over again.  You cannot advance because you do not listen to My admonitions.

          Come to Me in the silence.  Let Me speak to you.  Let Me chart your course for you.  I will bring you safely to port.  You vessel now runs in a zigzag motion.  Let Me bring your ship quickly to shore.”
