YOUR SATISFACTION CONSISTS
IN CONFORMING TO DIVINE WILL
Part 1 of 5 CS-80 12-Nov-97
My Father sent Me not only as Savior, but also as your teacher.
I have come into the world to teach you
with My Words and with My example
the way you must love God, the greatest good.
If all of you desire the treasure of divine love,
you must incessantly entreat the Holy Spirit
to make the Divine Will known to you,
and always ask for the light necessary
to recognize the Divine Will and carry it out.
I want to teach you today
that all your satisfaction must consist
in being content with the Divine Will,
and in which things and how you must conform to it.
It is true that your salvation consists in loving God
because the soul who does not love Him remains in death.
Hence, the perfection of love consists
in conforming one’s will to that of the Father’s.
Love’s main effect is to desire what the beloved one does
in a way that both persons may have one sole heart and one sole will.
While preaching in a home I replied that
he who does My Father’s Will is My brother, My sister and My Mother (look up Matthew 12:50).
What I meant was that
I consider only those who comply with the Will of God,
as My relatives and friends.
The Saints in Heaven love God perfectly.
But in what does the perfection of their love consist?
It consists in being totally conformed to the Divine Will.
This is why I taught you to ask for the grace to do My Will in this world,
as the blessed ones do in Heaven.
A perfect act of conformity to the Divine Will
is enough to make a person holy.
What did Paul do when he converted after seeing Me?
He offered God his own will to dispose of it at His pleasure.
Listen, [children], he who mortifies himself
through fasting and penance,
he who gives alms and does other good works,
gives God a part of himself and his possessions.
But he who gives Me his will, gives Me everything,
and for that very reason he can say:
“Lord, having given You my will, there is nothing else I can give you,
since I have given it all to You.”
This is that “all” that I ask of you when I request your heart,
that is to say, your will…
All of your good consists in complying with My Will,
but the difficulty lies in carrying it out.
