WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE UNITED TO ME? Part 1 of 2

CS-50 26-Aug-97

Jesus

1

Before saying anything, little one, meditate...

Take heart; I will teach you.

Remember that man is capable of understanding when God wills it.

That is why all of you have your limits which are fixed by Me,

and all should acknowledge

that the limits that I fix for you are for your good.

Thus, an act that is worthy of My kindness,

is a synthesis of light and love,

which is set by the Eternal Good and of which it participates...

Know which are the acts worthy of My kindness

and which, on the other hand, cannot reach My heights.

2

I said previously, “a synthesis of light and of love...”

In analyzing a good human act, we find light and love.

But in order that the act itself may be worthy of My kindness,

it must necessarily be fixed by the Eternal Good;

[that is] the Eternal Good must participate in that act,

since it is precisely My participation that makes a good human act

worthy of being in My presence.

3

Therefore, I do not take delight in subtle reasoning

in order to give a demonstration of truth.

Too many follow this method, which has no usefulness

but for those who already understand in the manner of the learned.

So I am telling you in order that you may draw benefit from it,

that if all of you want to do good things that please Me,

that may be acceptable to Me,

you must remain constantly united to Me

under pain of negating anything that you do.

4

United to Me you will do things that are worthy of Me,

because it is I who will inform you of your actions.

United to Me you will have light and sufficient love to set Me,

eternal and infinite Good, on you.

It is also evident that united to Me,

you will participate of all the provisions of which I desire that you do,

so that your acts may be worthy of My kindness.

5

What does it mean to be united to Me?...

The sacraments, prayers and virtuous acts are the necessary means,

but you must add yet another.

What else? Perhaps My dispensing of Grace to you

through the sacraments and prayers?

Yes, it is perfect... but to My work you must add your will.

It is a small thing compared to My work, yet necessary

because I desire it.

I want to tell you, that the means that I give you through the Church

are meant precisely to solicit, invite, and help you grow more tightly

close to Me, in a spirit of willingness.

That is why they are given, so you can unite yourselves to Me.

As I said previously, the acts worthy of My kindness depend on all this.
