Wednesday, September 17, 2014: (St. Robert Bellarmine)
Jesus said: “My people, the first reading about the various beauties of love, reminds you of a couple that are married. When you are married in a commitment for life, you make sacrifices and compromises out of love for the other spouse. You may have different ways that you live your life, but you accommodate your spouse’s differences. Married people show their love for each other in little ways, as well as big ways. As time goes along, the spouses do not realize how dependent they are on each other for their various needs. It is when your spouse is sick, or away from you, that you see how much you rely on each other. You each can live independently if necessary, but your lives are easier working together. This is why when a spouse dies, or there is a divorce, this separation is so traumatic at first. Each day that your spouse is with you, you need to treasure your love relationship, and appreciate the gift of your lives together. Even as you love your spouse, your love for Me should be greater. You are My creations, and I love every soul so dearly. I pray that every soul would love Me, and show Me in each person’s prayer life, and how that person loves Me and his or her neighbors. Love is everything in this life, and it supercedes all of your wants and possessions. Love is self-giving, and it requires work every day to be loving and feel loved.”

Jesus said: “My people, in the reading to the Corinthians, St. Paul likened your imperfect state to a mirror, where you can see all of your imperfections. In this life you are easily distracted from Me by your events of the day, and your own personal desires. You should be loving everyone, but sometimes you neglect to show your love for people, when you are busy with your own agenda. You need to be open to help people out of love, and not just to gain something by your actions. You struggle in this life to avoid anger and swearing. You also can get annoyed with the way people drive their cars. But once you are allowed into heaven, there will be no evil or sin, and you will see Me face to face in My beatific vision. In heaven there is no anger, but only love with no anxieties and no worries. There are only saints and angels with Us in heaven. When you are in heaven, you can intercede for souls in helping them to come to heaven. This is why you can call on your deceased relatives in heaven to be your intercessors, by letting them bring your intentions to Me.”
