For the endless hours that Jesus waits in
the tabernacle we want to tell Him our love. God wants
union with Him, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Intimacy —
a Personal love affair for us with Jesus the bridegroom
of our soul.
We may want our love union with others to be
euphoric and then we say God I will be happy and love
you when I have intimacy with another.
For His religious God wants an even more special
bridal union with Him. Think of how it is that so
many priests and religious cannot spend that hour with
Jesus, alone before the tabernacle. They may rationalize
the Church, others are all more important than having
one hour a day before the Blessed Sacrament to be with
We do what we do not because of what others do if
they love us, give us affection, money, admiration,
passionate euphoric love — we love Jesus in
sunny weather and rainy weather — we love Jesus
first, not see if we get love from another individual
and then love Jesus.
Jesus loved us when they beat Him — crowned Him
with thorns. He loved those who beat Him so much
He died for them on the cross.
We are to have this special love union with
God for God's sake, not because we are happy
with an individual — that's when we love God and
when we are sad in a relationship our deep love
for God dwindles.
A person loving God is a person of strength
She stood beneath the cross and she loved the
precious souls He died for. Mary is our model. Mary
did not put John and the apostles before Jesus. Her
love was to honor God — her love flowed to others
from this - not the other way around.
God has called religious to a special spousal
union with Him to teach others about the
mystical marriage WITH GOD.
If the religious in the Church drew their strength
from the relationship with God they would not
be so easily swayed by looking for satisfaction
in things and people in the world.
God is the primary focus — To love God above all
things — to love our neighbor as ourselves.
Holding onto any one inordinately — another —
our family — trying to rescue — looking for
understanding to the point it is that which
determines our moods and actions — can be
blocking our focus on God first — love flowing
from this to others, loving ourselves as God's
Why do it? Why can one person be so attached
to family or others they have inappropriate -
slavishly dependent relationships — Filling
ourselves with candy leaves little room for the
good foods we need.
The mission God gave to me was to feed the hungry.
16 years ago — I have lived to help to feed the hungry
souls — for at least 2 years I spent in front of
the tabernacle feasting on the grace outpoured
into my wounded soul — until God began to
lavishly fill me with this love from the Mass
and adoration — I knew Him, I love Him,
I wanted to be with Him.
God may open our eyes to inordinate
attachments in our lives and we say — no God —
I want what I want.
We can see how we are asked to let go of
mom or dad, sometimes our children, people
we love to death and then in that void we may
discover deeper and deeper love of God — thirsting
after the Eucharist.
We have to put on the Father's vision — His
Plan for the world — surrender and let go to what
He wants with our lives — loving deeply God
first — others as God desires.
I cry for the souls — I want to know
the love of God so much. Jesus is the
bridegroom of my soul.
I look at the priests suffering and I
know that God longs for them to spend time
with Him — loving Him — being so one with
Christ in celebrating the Mass —
From this the grace flows —
Putting God first like the 1st Commandment
1. I, the Lord, am your God. You shall not have other gods besides me.
Fighting what God wants for us
Making ourselves looking to fill voids
in our hearts by loving possessively
or before God —
blocks the very deep mystical marriage
we can have with God when we
make Him have His rightful place
as the King and Center of my heart
We were created with the desire that can
only be filled by God —
vocations to the religious life could prosper
if this love affair and its great gift
were talked about.

Married people who end in divorce may be looking

will — even if we are suffering
and people cause us pain —
our actions are like a moving
pole — satan can control by
pressing on others around us —

by how others are acting to us.

If one is unloving it does not give
the other person the right to have
romantic affections outside

children do not learn about the
love of God — but they were co-created
through the parent's actions.
