THE MOTHER SPEAKS TO BISHOPS, PRIESTS, RELIGIOUS

The Blessed Mother
Dear consecrated souls, it is with great hope I come to you. I want you to consider the mercy of God, giving me this opportunity to bring you all of this guidance and love. I am teaching you about love, you see, as love is the mainstay and point of all that is relevant. All work must be centered in love. We have talked in the past about the modern version of love, which is not love at all, but exploitation. True love, heavenly love, is genuine. You know it is genuine because it creates security. Consider those with whom you are comfortable. Do you not see that those souls carry true love within them? It is safe to be with them because they carry a seed of God in them and that is what generates that love. It is that seed you respond to when you feel comfortable and safe with a person.
Well, dear ones, I have to tell you that fewer and fewer carry that seed of love and that is why so many of your fellow brothers and sisters have fallen prey to diseases of the mind. Man was not meant to live without love in this life. He should walk through each day and experience a little love in this person, that person, and ideally, through every soul who has contact with him. But the Light has been extinguished in many souls and they have nothing to give in the way of love. Gradually, love in this man goes out too. Now a man can survive quite nicely if he is nurtured by divine love. That is not a problem. But few souls are accepting divine love. Think on most of the souls you know. How many can you say have a lively connection to Jesus Christ? You will know them because they stand out. Why do they stand out? Because, they are joyful. They smile. They love others with simplicity and easiness. They worry for each other and tolerate and understand the faults of others. They seek to help others whenever they can. They are not ruled by addictions and jealousies. They do not acquire goods for the sake of acquiring goods. They speak the truth. They accept responsibility for their actions. And they like and respect children. How many souls of this description did you identify, dear one? I leave you with that thought and ask you to understand that this description should fit every one.
