Jesus speaks: My dear chosen one,
It is not what you experience and feel that determines the grace that is released from a heartfelt prayer. It is the disposition of the heart. It is your desire to love your God with your whole heart, your whole soul and your whole being. You will have to fight all attempts of Satan to block your heartfelt prayer. I have allowed you to experience ecstasies to help to record insights into the mysteries of My divine love.
My people, you must focus on your intention to love God with your whole heart, whole soul and whole being. Love is most dynamic, but many times it is so gentle and quiet as the peaceful breeze washing your tender face with love and care. Love can be experienced in the deepest sufferings as when one through anguishing pain watches a loved one slowly deteriorate with life threatening cancer. Love is in the heart, it is not selfish, seeking selfish gain. This love truly is the love the Father wishes you to have. It is the love that is patient with the teenage son, and the love that gives in a marriage which is one-sided. One loves because it is God's will. It is the love that embraces the wailing widow as she cries for relief and you stoop to hear her cries. Love is giving in this Shepherds of Christ Movement tirelessly, morning and night. Some spend hours when no one even knows, praying and talking to others to see that My wishes are done. Love is giving God your feet to wash in obedience when you think it should not be. Love is loving, it is not selfish and demanding, it is giving in service willingly according to the will of God. For what will it matter if you do all these deeds and have a bitter heart? You will miss your greatest reward in that bitterness. God wants conformity to His will in love. Love is being patient when you are tired and hungry and feel like screaming, but instead you pray and try to be as God wishes. To My death on the cross, I was in perfect peace. I am your beloved Savior, the Prince of Peace. My Mother is Queen of Peace. You will experience suffering. Being loving even during suffering helps to release great grace. You must ask to be spread with the Blood of Jesus and cast the devil far from you. You must realize I allow you to suffer. In the Mass you may experience great suffering, wishing to experience great gifts. I give as I see fit. Even when you do not experience special gifts, your suffering helps release great graces if you stay focused on Me and intercede through Mary's Immaculate Heart. When praying, you cannot judge the graces given by your experiences alone. Great graces are released when you must struggle to concentrate on the Mass and on what you are begging the Father to grant you. You must try to maintain a level, peaceful, attitude and ask for grace, tremendous grace, even when you do not feel that you are receiving it. Do not focus on yourselves and all that you want and all you do not have. Focus on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass when attending Mass even when it is most difficult. Intercede with the priest and all the faithful to the Father. Fight the temptation to be divided with any man. You cannot be divided with men, dead or alive. This will harm your union with Me. Intercede as never before.
