Gathering of Love With God's Action in Sauvebonne, France,

Through His Instrument, The Girl of My Will in Jesus

 

2008-02-23

 

The Girl of My Will in Jesus in the Holy Spirit: Can you hear me in the back? Okay. And now, is this better? If the Lord wishes to adjust the volume of the voice of the one he has chosen, he also wants to adjust your hearts.

We all need an adjustment. Why do we need an adjustment? Because the Lord is watching us constantly but he can't find us: he's looking for his children, his children of the Light. He's looking for those who have been made beautiful by his Son's presence. God gave his presence and we received his Presence. We have the Flesh of Jesus in us, we have the Blood of Jesus in us, so why is God the Father looking for us since we have just received his holy Child, his only Child, his adorable Child? That’s because there are ashes inside us. From one year to the next, from one century to the next, those ashes have accumulated inside us, and those ashes are part of our lives. They are the suffering of the world, which has accepted sin.

Jesus came to us to tell us about his mercy, Jesus came to tell us about his love, Jesus came to tell us about the Father's tenderness. Today, if we look into our eyes, we won’t see that tenderness because we have difficulty looking at our neighbour with the Father's tenderness. If we don’t look at our neighbour with the Father's tenderness, the Father will search our eyes: “Where is my gaze, the one I place in my children through my Child? Where, then, is that tenderness that turns to the one who is crying, to the one who lacks mercy towards himself?”

Even when a single child commits a sin, he's hurting himself, he's making himself suffer because he's living the consequence of his lack of love towards himself. He is faced with a choice: he must refuse sin but he isn't able to do it; he says yes to temptation, and as a result, he enters his own pain. We see this every day – we see people walking by on the street, we see people who don’t follow the Ten Commandments of God, and our eyes have no mercy in them. We have trouble seeing that person as someone who is loved by the Father, saved by the Son, for the Son saved that child. The Blood of Jesus flowed over that child and we don’t see this because we lack mercy. First of all, we lack mercy towards ourselves because when we see someone who is suffering, who is sinning, we need to look at what we’re doing for him.

Are we ready to see what we have become? We have become children who have lacked love towards themselves, for if we didn’t lack love towards ourselves, we would be filled with mercy for him, we would love him, we would hold out our arms to him and we would say to him, “Don’t be afraid. God loves you, God wants you. He gave himself to you; he gave up his Son for you. Don’t be afraid, we’ll travel part of the way together.” But we’re incapable of doing this because we don’t love ourselves enough. We have difficulty seeing what he has accepted because we ourselves have accepted the same thing, we ourselves have turned our eyes away from God's mercy, and we too have been unable to love ourselves during the most difficult moments of our lives.

During the most difficult moments of our lives, we lacked love towards ourselves. It was difficult for us to say, “I am your child, Father, and I know you love me. Yes, I have just committed a sin; yes, I have just thrown myself to the ground; I can feel this pain, but I'm giving it to you because you love me. And because you love me, you are teaching me to love myself. Through the Blood of Jesus, I see the child that I am, I see your helping hand, I see your hand reaching out to me and bringing me to you so you can say to me, ‘I am your Father. Despite what you have just done, I, I am here.’” We didn’t do this. We turned our eyes away and we had difficulty looking ourselves in the face; we hid our weakness from ourselves. Yes, we are weak in the face of sin, but this teaches us, this teaches us that we need the Father's tenderness, this teaches us that we need the Father's mercy. We need his love in order to see ourselves as tiny children loved by the Father.

When we walk around outside and we see our brothers and our sisters, we must see them as though we were seeing ourselves. We’re the ones walking along the street, we’re the ones who are part of their lives because we all came here on earth together. It’s true, we were born at different times, we were born on different days, but we’re all here on earth together. Whether it was in the time of Adam, or the time of Moses, or the time of Jesus, or during our time, we’re all together here on earth. We’re walking on this earth and we all have one purpose: to journey towards God the Father. This is why we’re on earth. We have no other goal other than to achieve eternal happiness with our Father, with the One who wanted us here on earth.

We’re together and it’s together that we must cross the desert. It’s together that we must take that journey with the Father, with the Father's Messenger, his beloved Son, with the Holy Spirit. It’s together, by maintaining ourselves in our faith, that we love one another. We do love one another – it’s wrong to say that we’re incapable of loving our enemies. It’s right to say, “I cannot tolerate sin. I hate lying; I hate stealing, hypocrisy, domination.” Yes, I hate all those things, but I know how to feel compassion for someone who reveals himself. When his heart begins to cry, we can hear his heart crying. That’s when we discover that the greatest sinner has a heart – he has the heart of a child, he has a heart that knows how to stop worrying and knows how to cry, a heart that knows it needs to take a look at itself – and it also wants us to take a look at ourselves. We are brothers, we are sisters. All around the world, we are brothers and sisters, for we have but one Father and that’s God the Father. He sent us his Child, Jesus, and we love his Child as he is our God.

Even someone who has just committed a murder had a mother, he had a father – and one day, someone tried to take his mother and his father away from him, and it was because of how this hurt him that he, in turn, became a being who wanted to hurt others. Within every child there is hurt, within every child there is pain, and we’re incapable of remaining indifferent in the face of a child’s suffering. Even if he's a year old, we have compassion when he cries. Whether he's 20 years old, 40, 50, or 80, isn't he the same child? He's the same child that God willed as a life companion for us; he's the same, he hasn’t changed on the inside. Yes, he has grown older; yes, his character has developed, but it developed with what this world gave him.

This world has inserted so many images inside us, so many words, so many sounds! Our minds have become confused, our hearts have become hard and our actions have turned against us – but we’re still who we are: tiny little children who strive to remain standing before God as he wants us to be. But God the Father, he wants his children, his tiny children, those who truly want him. And so, he comes to talk to every one of us in our hearts, to tell us: “Love one another, love one another as I love you. Give your sufferings to my Son; he brought them unto death. Give the consequences of your bad choices before temptation, which comes from evil.” And none of us is evil. We come from the Father – we are not evil, we are God's children. Evil comes from evil, and who is evil if not the fallen angel, Satan, and all those who followed Satan, the demons, the impure spirits? That’s what evil is! But we, we’re God's children; we came to be in our mother’s womb as children of love. We are children of The Love, we are children of God. God is The Love. He placed what he is within us – love – and so, he wants us to behave as beings of love. Today, if we take a look at what we are, we are not keeping ourselves in that love. We have difficulty loving those who go ahead of us: we always want to be first.

We must see ourselves as we truly are. We must ask God: “You want me to take a look at myself, God? Then, help me. I don’t just want to examine myself once a week when I come to Church; I want to examine myself every day. At every fraction of every second, I want to examine myself, so give me the graces to do this. You give me graces at the Eucharist, and I receive your Body, I receive your Blood. Awaken what is dormant within me. Bring me back to life for I am numb. Warm me for I am cold. Dry my tears because I can't stop crying. Teach me to love myself, because I can't love my neighbour if I don’t love myself. You gave me that love that I need in order to love myself, so help me discover it.”

When we notice that we lack love towards ourselves, we must turn to the One who chose us among those on earth – God the Father – as we would to a father. We must talk to him as we would to our dad. We must speak to him as a Father to a daughter, as a Father to a son, as though he were sitting next to us, but he is even closer to us than if he were sitting next to us: he's within us. There isn't a single place we can go where he isn't present. He's part of our lives, he is in us and we are in him. Remember the words Jesus said: “My Father is in me and I am in my Father. Because my Father is in me, I never cease to offer myself to him.”

We have received Jesus – the Body of Jesus, the Blood of Jesus – therefore, who gave himself to us? Jesus gave himself to us. Because Jesus gave himself to us, he is in us, he dwells in us, he comes to nourish the being that we are: the child of God. Wherever the Son is, the Father is. Wherever the Father is and the Son is, God is there, the Holy Spirit is there.

It is for that reason that what we’re hearing comes from the Divine Will and not from the human will. We unite our hearts to form but one heart. We are the Church, we are love. We remain together in this moment in order to allow God to nourish our spiritual life. Our spiritual life is much more important than our physical life. Our external life doesn’t have the importance that our inner life has. Without our inner life we would be like a sack that would fall to the ground: it wouldn’t be able to move, it would be empty. We are life and life is within us.

Go see the greatest scientists of this world and ask them if the flesh is life. They will say no because they have studied the flesh, they have analysed everything to do with cells. They have done all they could to sustain life and they are unable to: they have to take the heart of another person so that the pulse of life can be restored to us through the heart of another. If our heart is unable to beat, they will take the heart of another person. Why? Because life isn't in the flesh. Even if all flesh is taken away, there will always be life – the one God gave us – and that life is eternal, it never ends unless we, we want it to end.

Because when we leave the earth and our flesh remains here, at rest by the Will of God, our spiritual life presents itself for its first judgment. It presents itself before God and God gives his love to that spiritual life, and it is with love that we judge ourselves: we see our entire life. And when we benefitted from what we received on earth – graces – then we examine our life, we see the good and the bad side, and with the Father's love, with the Son's graces, we judge ourselves. “Yes, I want you, o God of love.” And life was not interrupted and goes on forever and ever. But if we refuse categorically – “I want nothing to do with your life, I want nothing to do with you” – then life stops, eternally, to enter eternal death, for spiritual life is the soul and the soul is the Father's movement of love; it cannot be extinguished because it comes from God.

And what about our flesh? Is our flesh something that will never be returned to us once we are either in eternal life or in eternal death? That’s wrong. Our flesh will follow, for there will come a time when the flesh will be resurrected, and the soul and the flesh will be reunited to receive the final judgment, and then, the flesh will follow the soul. If the soul is in its eternal life, the flesh will be with the soul as it comes from God. The flesh doesn’t come from us, it doesn’t come from our mother, it doesn’t come from our father.  They are not the creators – God is the Creator, our only God. Therefore, if we are love, we will be so for eternity; but if we refuse love, we will go to a place where the suffering is terrible, and with our soul and our flesh, we will be there for eternity.

We who are so attached to our flesh, we who satisfy it, we who take care of it, how much more should we take care of our soul, and we know this because the Church has always spoken to us about this. But today, we have trouble understanding eternity. Eternity is within our reach: we’re living in eternity, it’s part of our daily lives on earth.

God wants us to be with him, he wants us to love one another unconditionally. He doesn’t want to see his children judging one another, because when only one judges his neighbour, he judges himself first. When we say, “Oh, him! He isn't as nice as I would like him to be,” well, we have just said that we aren’t nice, because before judging our neighbour, it was necessary to be aware of that emotion, of the sense that kindness was lacking. Therefore, we took what was inside us and let it emerge. But when we give this to God – “Whoops! I have just said this, Lord. You who are on the Cross, I give you what I have just said” – do you think that God will refuse these words? This is exactly what he's waiting for: he wants to free us, he wants to free our flesh of our pain.

We’re living a time of graces, we’re living a time of revelations. The flesh wants to allow God to free it but it will be necessary for our human will to consent to it. It’s up to us to decide if we want to give those words to God: “Yes, Jesus, take these words, take all those that are in me; I don’t want them anymore.” Then, God will take them, he will replace them, he will replace them with peace. The more we learn to give the sufferings that are in our flesh, the more our soul will rejoice, and the more our flesh will feel the effects of this. We will feel peace every day.

Yes, we live in a world of apostasy, we live in utter confusion. We are Catholics but we ask ourselves, “Where do I stand regarding who I am? Should I follow this, should I follow that?” We even ask ourselves, “Bah! God's Ten Commandments… are there some that I can agree to less than others?” We’re living in utter confusion.

God is immutable. He doesn’t change. He is eternal. He is the Light. To bring one of God's commandments down to our level, well, God would have to bring himself down to our level: he would have to diminish his light, diminish his purity, diminish his power, diminish his love. And if he accepted to do this, we would fade away because we would constantly want him to come down to our level, constantly.

God has always been the same. He is the Alpha and the Omega, he is the Present, he is He Who IS. Therefore, he will not change, but it’s up to us to allow his Will to transform us. He doesn’t come to speak in our hearts in order to change us. He doesn’t want to change us – he chose us, he gave us the talents required to live on this earth so we can present our works to him; but what we have become is incompatible with what we have received. Therefore, we need him, we need to be transformed, and to be transformed – only God can make this happen. No human will can transform us.

This happens when we go to Confession: we present our sins to Jesus, to the Christ-Priest. We aren’t going to see the man – we’re going to see Jesus, the Christ-Priest. He's the one we’re going to see and he's the one who gives us the sanctifying grace so our soul can be filled with wonder before its God. It comes forward to taste mercy, and it remains constantly before its God, its Beauty, for the soul, when it sees its God, when it accepts everything from its God, it sees its own beauty.

Can a human being do this? Can the man within the priest do this? That’s false. The human being in the priest can do nothing. He, as well, needs to go to Confession just as we do, because he's human. But he received something – he received a yes – because it is God who chooses his priests. Therefore, he received that yes so that he could answer the call of God. And when we, we pray together to help God's chosen one, we help him move forward to the place where he must be, for we are the ones who have everything to gain from this. Because the moment he says yes and he's ordained, we will be nourished by his hands, as his hands will be the hands of Christ and no longer his hands. They will give us nourishment. From his hands will flow a source of nourishment for us, which will nourish us forever and ever. From him we will receive, forever and ever, that Blood of love, that Living Water that we need so much. We are hungry, we are thirsty, and the priests give us to eat, they give us to drink. We are continuously in this movement of love, but we must persevere to the end.

A time of love is coming; a time is coming when we will have to be true, when we will have to let God transform us, because our flesh is tired of suffering: our thoughts are too confused. We have exposed everything that we are to the outside world. Everything that is external to us enters us non-stop – words enter us, impure images enter us – we have the spirit of this world instead of the Spirit of God. And we have been doing all this since Adam and Eve.

The flesh remembers all the way back to Adam and Eve. It is subjected to sin and this didn’t begin with us; it began a long, long time ago because the flesh multiplied. When a man and a woman meet and they have a child, it’s the same flesh that is multiplying, the same one as Adam and Eve; therefore, we all have the same flesh.

As a result, we are all aware of the world’s suffering – it’s in our flesh. Without graces, without the Father's love, we would be completely destroyed by our own thoughts, we would be incapable of remaining in the grace of God. God is the one who does everything for us, God is the one who loves us, God is the one who comes for us. He does this with his tenderness, he does this with his love. We are children of God and this world belongs to God.

We must give the suffering that is inside us in order to help our children, to help our grandchildren, to help those who don’t know God, to help those who have known God and have rejected God. God wants all his children; he wants them for himself. He's going to use us: the little ones who have consented to open their hearts. Because they consented to open their hearts, God brought about a movement of love in those hearts: a light appeared, a light pierced those hearts of stone that were ours, and then, it transformed our hearts. Our hearts began beating, beating: “I want to help my children, I want to help my grandchildren.”

We have been giving ourselves since the beginning of time. We look around us and we can see people who know those who have given of themselves their entire lives for the sake of love. People are beginning to open up, people are beginning to no longer remain indifferent to the Virgin Mary, a Mother who looks at her Child on the Cross, a Mother who prayed so that her Child might have the Father's strength. She didn’t choose her Child, she chose her God. Did you think that Mother Mary didn’t love her Child, the flesh of her flesh? She loved her Child but she loved her God first and foremost.

That’s what we must do. We must love God first, love God more than ourselves. When we reach the point of loving God more than ourselves, then we learn how to love ourselves. That’s when we learn to love ourselves. We learn to accept God's graces so that we can be transformed according to his wishes: and that’s when we look at ourselves and we forgive ourselves; and that’s when we look at ourselves and we give; and that’s when we look at ourselves and we know that we have received. A peace rises up within us and then, we look at ourselves and we wait patiently, because we learn to give, to give, to give and to give, just as Jesus did and just as Jesus is still doing.

Jesus never stops watching us and giving – he gives us graces, he gives us his Life, he gives us the strength to move forward to travel the same path as his: his Passion. We must live the Passion with love, we must live the Passion with dignity, as Jesus lived his Passion. He did so out of love for his Father, with the Father's love; not without the Father's love, but rather, with the Father's love. He was obedient, accepting everything out of love, out of love for God, because God loves us. We are his children, we belong to him. Jesus went as far as this.

He wants us to learn how to love our God unconditionally. He wants us to love ourselves unconditionally. Not one of us is able to say that he loves himself unconditionally – we have always judged ourselves because of something we had done. We judged the person that we were, whereas we should have looked at the sin and asked God for strength, and immersed ourselves in his mercy, saying, “Thank you, Father. You’re always there. You love me, and I love myself because you love me.” But we didn’t do this.

Today, he's showing us: he comes to speak in our hearts to teach us at every fraction of every second that we must love unconditionally – not tomorrow but today. Today, we are keeping ourselves in the grace of the Holy Spirit – there is transformation, there is healing and deliverance – and those graces will be useful to us tomorrow, and whatever we become tomorrow will be useful to us another day in the future, and it will be like this to the very end of our passion. When this comes to an end, we will be aware of it because God will let us know.

It’s today, today that we must truly live the purification of the flesh. The purification of the flesh was proclaimed to us by John; the way was also prepared by Paul. Paul also spoke about bodies that were corruptible and that would become incorruptible. John spoke to us about mortal bodies that would become immortal bodies. Would the Word of God be untrue? Would the Word of God not be filled with light, truth? The Word of God heals, the Word of God delivers, and we are living those times described by Paul and John.

He chooses the little beings that we are – sinners – but he loves us. He doesn’t look at what sin has done to us; he looks at his love as there is love in all our choices, and love comes from God and we belong to God. It’s as though we were going back to school, a school of love, and it’s through the Holy Spirit that everything will happen. Because when we find ourselves alone at home, alone on the sidewalk, alone at work, the Holy Spirit will work within us. He will have thoughts rise to the surface that we had hidden within us because of our pain, and we will slowly learn to say: “I give them to you, Jesus. Take them.” Another one will rise up, one that goes all the way back to our childhood – “I give this to you, Jesus” – and everything will be replaced by a balm of love. Jesus will uproot the evil, cleanse the wounds in our flesh, and we will be freed.

All this is true, all this is real. What we’re hearing comes from our interior – it doesn’t come from the exterior. A human being is not able to make a thought, a word, a movement, a feeling rise to the surface, and have it re-emerge from within him. It’s impossible, but the Holy Spirit can do this. This is the work of the Holy Spirit. It isn't up to us to make the effort, it’s up to God. What God expects from us is a yes, the yes of a child, an unconditional yes. That’s what he expects of us.

We came forward earlier to receive the Body of Jesus, to receive the Blood of Jesus. We came forward as children; we left our pride behind and we came forward, didn’t we? Why did we come forward? It wasn’t because of our human will – we left it on our seat. It was grace that impelled us to move forward, the grace of love: the desire to taste that love, the desire to seize that love. We had it inside us. The soul received that joy, but our flesh was unable to vibrate to the sound of love, was unable to hear the song of the soul for its God, because our flesh is badly wounded. God will take everything that we are and he will transform it. All this happens with such simplicity!

Since 2001, the Lord has been speaking within me in a very simple manner. I just have to take the time to turn to him and he talks to me. Why did he choose the being that I am to use me as though I were a microphone? I hear and I repeat. I know nothing more than you do. I often say, “Why, Lord? There are others who are much better than I am. There are nuns who pray, there are priests, holy priests – why did you choose someone like me?” He never really answered me. All he said was: “Abandon yourself and give of yourself.” And when I hear those words, I say, “Yes, Lord.” And, at other times, when those questions come back to me, he tells me the same thing: “Abandon yourself. This is our Will. You are nothing. If Heaven chose you, it is because Heaven wills it.”

Well, how can you argue with the Will of God? So, you bow down but you’re careful, because inside me, there's something telling me, “Now is not the time. Now is the time.” How many times have I been with people and I hear the Lord, “Look at them. They are my children – give them to me.” I drive by in my car and I say, “Jesus.” “Yes, they are with me.” Because he taught me something through all this: he taught me to love others, to give myself on behalf of others, to want only his Will out of love for our brothers and our sisters of the whole world. He taught me to be surrender in his Will, in his Divine Will, because he says, “You are a child of the Divine Will. I want my children.” Therefore, he wants all of us.

We are children of the Divine Will; we are not children of the human will. Adam and Eve came to know their human will through their disobedience. They should never have come to know their human will, but they did come to know it. God wants to immerse us once again in the Divine Will. He wants us to give up our human will.

There is a time that is coming for us, a time of graces. The Mother of God has prepared us for this. When she came to speak to Bernadette, when she came to speak to the children of Fatima, she came to ask her little children to pray, to make sacrifices: she was preparing hearts and still today, she's preparing hearts.

Most of us know that she has been appearing to children for over 25 years at Medjugorje. People say, “Oh, maybe it’s true, maybe it isn't true.” Let’s look at the fruits of this, let’s look at those who give themselves out of love for the Mother of God: she comforts them, she asks them to place their hearts in her Heart, she teaches us to abandon ourselves to the Heart of her Son. 

The Mother of God is with us, the Mother of God holds us against her shoulder. She wraps us in her shawl to protect us from the demons’ attacks, for we are her children of the Light. She uses us, whatever we may be, to reach out to her other children. This, this is the work of Heaven. Mother Mary obeys God over and over again and she will always obey God. She doesn’t do her will and she never did. She does what God wants her to do in God, in her Son, for she, Mother Mary, is Child of the Divine Will. She never once used her human will, for if she had used her human will, she wouldn’t have said, “I am the Immaculate Conception.” She would have been unable to say this because she would have said, “I am she who, at a certain point in time, left her human will to come to know the Will of God.” That’s not what she said.

She is Child of the Divine Will; she was immersed in love. When she received her God, it was her God who welcomed her, it was her God who was revealing himself to her, who was nourishing her with his love, she who had been chosen throughout the ages, she who was full of grace. The Child of the Divine Will was receiving the Divine Will. The Divine Will was indicating to her that she was the Immaculate Child who had never wanted to use her human will. She, Mother Mary, had received the human will but she had never used it, for Mother Mary is not the Divine Will, but she is Child of the Divine Will – there's a slight difference.

We, as well, are all called to become children of the Divine Will once again, because before Adam succumbed to sin, which turned him into a child unable to remain in the Divine Will, we were in the Divine Will because we were in Adam, and Adam was in the Divine Will. All of that disappeared from within him, from within the man: his love for the Father. His mind had become confused; his hearing became a hearing that was turned only towards himself; his eyes no longer contained the gaze of God: he could no longer perceive God's beauty all around him. All his thoughts, which were once for God and which God returned to him – constant nourishment, constant love – disappeared: he was forgetting. His movements, his movements of love, which were nothing but perfection, were becoming heavy movements, movements that always required more and more reflection before he acted. The heart, that heart, which was beating for God, which was nourished by the Divine Will, had just become a heart incapable of understanding God's love.

All of these things happened in the past and today, God is coming to us, within us, in our hearts, so that our hearts of stone can change into hearts of flesh. When our hearts of stone turn into hearts of flesh, then our ears open, then our eyes, our thoughts, our words, our movements begin to grasp what they hadn’t grasped before. What God wants and what the Divine Will wants from us: he's simply asking us for a childlike yes, a simple, childlike yes that will lead us to the place we need to be during these times.

We will experience something that has never been seen before and will never be seen again: the purification of the flesh. Corruptible flesh will become incorruptible, as it once was, for we weren't created for earthly death. We were created to give God the Father his love, to show him his love, and to go to him the moment he says, “Come. I am waiting for you.” And then, we present his love to him, for the works we will accomplish with our incorruptible flesh will be pure works, will be immaculate works, for all things that come from God, through God, have always been immaculate; but everything became impure because of human will.

It is the fault of man and woman that this place where we are has become impure. It isn't the earth itself that has become impure – it is what we did to it. And so, we will restore purity to the earth, for we will be beings who are pure in our thoughts, in our sight, in our words, in our actions and in our feelings, and we will take care of our earth: we will give it a new robe. We will praise God with sounds that come from the earth. Every sound must be directed towards its God. As a result, the animals, the animals will speak a language of love; their sounds will be sounds of love: everything will become one with what we are.

And now, our Father is saying to me, “Be quiet now.” And so, if you wish, we’re going to stand up for a few minutes, and we maybe we can sing a song...
