Today (Monday) on my Rosary walk, right before the Hail Holy Queen, in my mind, I saw a man standing in front of me, face-to-face, crying. I understood it to be Jesus Christ. It was no ephiphany, but only a faint image and inaudible hearing. He was worn and crying because, in his humanity, he knows rejection and he knows remorse for those who are lost, burning in Hell. This makes him very low – those who reject him and seek lustfully after sin and those who, in their choosing to follow their own ways, are lost to the burning flames. He is even remorseful for the many who, in the hardness of their hearts, were lost in the desert so many thousands of years ago. He did not want that to happen, but they chose to doubt.
He sought from me a pure oblation of love to comfort him. Of course, I offered him my loving obedience, my true desire to follow and serve him and to care for him in his suffering. You do so also, in truth. Offer the Lord your true desire to obey and comfort him. Offer him a pure oblation of your good intentions toward him and his desires for you.
