Allow Him To Lead and Instruct You

Adore Me always and in all places by a simple movement of your heart. Consider that wherever you are, I see you and know your heart’s desire.

Desire to adore Me always, and know that I accept that desire of yours with great delight. Come to Me as frequently as you can. Use every opportunity to come before Me in the Sacrament of My Love. There is no need to calculate the length of time you give Me in the course of a day. If your heart is always in a state of adoration, you will find your way to My tabernacle frequently and you will abide in My presence willingly and gratefully.

Allow Me to lead you and instruct you in the life of adoration to which I have called you. The Holy Spirit will be your infallible guide and the teacher of your adoration.

You have experienced how I answer you whenever you come to Me with your questions and difficulties. I am, at every moment, available to you and attentive to your prayers. Speak to Me freely of all the things that preoccupy you and weigh down upon your heart. Ask Me whatever questions you feel are necessary and seek My gentle guidance in all things.

If I delay in answering you it is so that you will trust Me to reveal the answer you seek in the persons who surround you or communicate with you, in events, in circumstances, and in those barely perceptible signs of My providence by which I communicate My love to little souls.

Never refrain from conversation with Me. Every conversation includes both questions and answers. Speak to Me confidently and without fear of being misunderstood or judged. I know your inmost thoughts and the questions you bring to Me in the Sacrament of My Love are clearly known to Me. Nonetheless, I desire to hold conversation with you because I have chosen you to be My friend and to abide in love, close to My Heart.”

Prefer My company to every other companionship, the love of My Heart to the love of every other heart, and the sound of My voice in the silence of your soul to every other voice. Abide close to Me, seek Me before all else, put nothing whatsoever before My love for you and the love I have placed in your heart to love Me in return.

Love Me in this way not only for yourself, but (also) for priests whose hearts have grown indifferent and cold. Love Me for them. Take their place before My Eucharistic Face. Persevere in loving Me and in adoring Me for those poor priests of Mine who no longer love Me and who never adore Me. They are many and the sorrow of My Heart over such priests is a sorrow that no human language can describe, for it is a divine sorrow; it is the grieving of a Divine Heart. It is the pain of an infinite Love rejected again and again by finite creatures who have become blind in a terrible darkness of the spirit.

Love Me, then, and console My Heart by adoring Me for them. When I see you before Me, I will see them, and in seeing them, I will be moved to show them pity, and many of those who are far from Me will return to My tabernacles; and many of those who have spurned My Divine Friendship will, in the end, surrender to the embrace of My mercy.

My vocation as a Lay Dominican created an insatiable desire to learn, study, live and share my Faith. For more than ten years I led a Prison Ministry program and have spent more than a decade promoting Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration. Now retired, I aspire to promote zeal for the salvation of souls, awe and amazement for the Holy Eucharist and Eucharistic Adoration, and fidelity to the Truths of our Catholic Faith.
