I AM THE SHEPHERD

Posted by Doming on December 22, 2014 at 10:15 AM

I AM THE SHEPHERD

SM-114 24-Aug-94 10:12 a.m.

The Lord

1

I am the Shepherd

who unhesitatingly gave Himself for the salvation of His flock.

I am the Shepherd who comes to you

to keep you from going astray and being devoured by the wolves

that set traps for you every moment.

2

I am your shepherd, My son.

Today, I want to receive you as one of My sheep,

to heal your wounds and give you food to eat

which is infinitely delightful: My peace and My love.

3

If your soul is dying of hunger and weakness,

I will restore your strength.

I wish to purify your heart and your feelings

so that you may enjoy the divine pasture that I want to give you

and receive the effects that this produces in hearts

that have surrendered to My Mercy.

4

If you have ungratefully disobeyed My voice of warning on many occasions,

if you have scorned My caresses and threats on other occasions,

if you have wounded and torn to pieces other sheep of My flock,

if you have led many astray with you,

if you have infected others by your example,

if you have poisoned others by your malicious talk…

I will no longer remember.

5

From the moment when I reach you

in order to hinder you from perishing,

as if My whole happiness consisted in possessing you,

I will show you the extent of this love.

It has been a long road [to travel in] running after a sheep

that maliciously fled from meeting Me...

only ask you today to open your heart to Me

so that I may rest in it

after the fatigue I have experienced seeking you

and possessing you,

feeding you,

comforting you

and making you happy.

6

Look steadily at Me.

Other shepherds grab the skin of their sheep

to make them love and follow them.

I grabbed your human nature.

The former feed themselves with the milk of their sheep.

I feed Mine with My own body and blood.

They cover themselves with their very beautiful robes.

I clothe those who are Mine with Myself.

They kill their sheep and sell them for their own needs.

I have allowed Myself to be sold in order to save those who are Mine

and I have handed Myself over to death in order to save their lives.

7

Let Me watch over you to protect you.

I will give you grazing in juicy pastures;

I will lead you to fountains of life.

I will seek favorable shelters for you

where you can rest from your work

and take cover from the heat of summer and the rigors of winter.

I will hold you in My arms, in My bosom.

8

If you are blind, I will give you sight.

I will heal you when you are sick;

I will take you where you cannot go.

I will feed you if you are hungry;

I will wait for you when you cannot follow Me.

If you fall through weakness, I will strengthen you;

if you are stubborn and disobedient, I will correct you.

If you are on the verge of getting lost, I will guide you

and I will defend you when wolves attack you.

If you want to escape from Me,

I will put you in chains with the sweet bonds of My love.

9

Your salvation has taken Me a long time.

I have shed blood to save you

and I have wept over your perdition a great deal of the time.

Today I want to comfort Myself over your return...

Come, My Son,

I have come down from the holy mountain

because I want to pasture you

with the divine food that I have prepared,

so that it will be your strength, your joy and your delight.

I am at one and the same time your shepherd,

your pasture and your life.
