Of sorrow and consolation…

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, a gentle Father and the God of all consolation, who comforts us in all our sorrows, so that we can offer, in their sorrows, the consolation that we have received from God ourselves. (2 Paul, 1 : 3-4)

Dear children! I am calling you to that love which is loyal and pleasing to God. Little children, love bears everything bitter and difficult for the sake of Jesus who is love. Therefore, dear children, pray that God come to your aid, not however according to your desire, but according to His love. Surrender yourself to God so that he may hear you, console you and forgive everything inside you which is a hindrance on the way of love. In this way God can move your life, and you will grow in love. Dear children, glorify God with a hymn of love so that God’s love may be able to grow in you day by day to its fullness. Thank you for having responded to my call. June 25, 1988

Blessed are the poor in spirit;
the kingdom of heaven is theirs.
Blessed the patient;
they shall inherit the land.
Blessed are those who mourn;
they shall be comforted.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for holiness;
they shall have their fill.
Blessed are the merciful;
they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the clean of heart;
they shall see God.
Blessed are the peace-makers;
they shall be counted the children of God.
Blessed are those who suffer persecution in the cause of right;
the kingdom of heaven is theirs.
Blessed are you, when men revile you, and persecute you, and speak all manner of evil against you falsely, because of me. Be glad and light-hearted, for a rich reward awaits you in heaven; so it was they persecuted the prophets who went before you.
Matthew 5 : 3-12
