My Way Is the Cross
April 27, 1994
R. Dear Jesus, I know You are present. I do not want to get up, but I love You so much. I am sorry I kept trying to sleep.
Jesus: My messages are not just for you. Yesterday you did not have time alone with Me. I want to be alone with you. My messages are messages for each of My precious children. Feel My presence even though you do not see Me.
You are realizing how truly far you are from Me. I call you to holiness and sainthood. My way is not the way of this world. My way is the way of the cross. I ask you to sacrifice when you do not want to. I ask you to love your brother who is not so nice. I ask you to be Christ-like. Study Me and My Passion. To know Me, you must study Me and My suffering. I ask you to live for Me, to take up your crosses and live for Me. I call you to mortify yourself, to be cheerful about it and to show My love and gentleness to all. I call you, My child, to sainthood.
You say, "Oh, but I get no pleasure?" I say My love is your pleasure! You live to love Me. Be united to Me. No worldly thing can give you any gratification as My love. You must give it up willingly and with such love. I will pour My love into your soul.
You will feel My presence in a new way. I am truly by your side. You do not need your senses to see Me. I plant Myself in your heart. Reach, in all things, to know Me in your heart. I am truly present. Open wide your heart and let Me rest there with you. I am truly your best friend. Do you want to know Me? Relinquish all your cares here and make Me first. Live for My love.
Love Me, sweet one. I long for you and your love. Come to Me with such eagerness. Think of Me at every second. Be united to Me in a way you have never known. Feel My presence by your side. Think of My love for you to lay down My life for you and suffer such a brutal death. I am truly your love. The cross is your comfort. Carry your cross and hold it close to your heart. It is My sign of My immense love. You should find such comfort holding the cro
When you hold the cross, you know how immensely you are loved. The cross is your comfort, not your enemy. I came that I might give you life. It is through the cross that you are saved. Hold the cross all night in bed. Carry it so closely to your heart. You are instantly comforted thus. You do not fear, you do not fret, you behold the cross of Christ and you live in His love given for you. It is in My blood that you are saved. I gave Myself, body and blood, that you would live.
I want your all. I do not want you to hold back. I want you to be so closely united to Me. Surrender yourself entirely. Give up the little things that hold you bound and you will be freed into My immense love. The price you pay is nothing for the gift you receive. I am that Person you felt truly by your side yesterday. Focus on My presence. I am with you every minute. I am loving you. You are never alone. Not for an instant do I leave your side.
You leave Me for your little whims. You take your eyes off Me. You go to your world. You hope that you will find some pleasure. You find momentary pleasure, only to be left more hungry. I and I alone feed your hungry soul. You thirst a barren desert and I am by your side.
Little one, little one, you are holding yourself bound to this world. Let go and fall into My waiting arms. I never ever leave you. I am truly by your side. Feel My presence. Reach with the soul. Picture Me clothed in white and red and being with you as you walk.
Oh, sweet one, I am there. It is you who do not see because you do not want to let go. Let go, surrender all to Me. Let Me go with you where

I love you. I am Jesus. Come and be with Me in the Eucharist and in the tabernacle. I am waiting for you there in such a special way. I am your God. I love you. I never abandon you. I long for your love and your closeness. Let Me embrace you. I embrace you in your surrender. Our union depends on your selflessness and surrender to Me. Let Go. Be constantly with Me. Know Me, love Me, make Me your all.
I am Jesus, the Son of God. Let go. I love you. Jesus.
