WHAT HOLY LOVE IS

 “Holy Love is:”

  • “The Two Great Commandments of Love – to love God above all else and to love neighbor as self.”
  • “The fulfillment and the embodiment of the Ten Commandments.”
  • “The measure by which all souls will be judged.”
  • “The barometer of personal holiness.”
  • “The Gateway to the New Jerusalem.”
  • “The Immaculate Heart of Mary.”
  • “The First Chamber of the United Hearts.”
  • “The Purifying Flame of Love of Mary’s Heart that all souls must pass through.”
  • “The Refuge of Sinners and the Ark of these last days.”
  • “The source of unity and peace amongst all people and all nations.”
  • “Holy Love is God’s Divine Will.”

“Realize that only evil would be opposed to Holy Love.”
(Jesus – November 8, 2010)

THE TWO GREAT COMMANDMENTS

When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they assembled in a body; and one of them, a lawyer, in an attempt to trip Him up, asked Him, “Teacher, which commandment of the law is the greatest?”

Jesus said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with your whole heart, with your whole soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments the whole law is based, and the prophets as well.”

(Matthew 22:34-40)

THE VIRTUE OF LOVE

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.””

I have come to speak to you about the virtue of love. Holy Love is, as you know, the Two Great Commandments: love God above all else and your neighbor as yourself. It is the embrace of all Ten Commandments. Holy Love is the Immaculate Heart of My Mother. It is the Divine Will of God.”

“Holy Love can be likened to the sun, which spills its rays over the earth enlightening the shadows of darkness. It is like the keys to the Kingdom I entrusted to My apostle Peter. It is the door to My Sacred Heart and union with Divine Love.”

“Holy Love is the harmony between man, nature, and the Creator. It is the interpretation of the law and the means of all sanctification.”

“The will of man must choose Holy Love. It is not open to debate, and stands undaunted in the face of discernment. Holy Love cannot be judged, for it is the judge.”

“Holy Love is offered in every present moment and follows the soul into eternity.”

(June 28, 1999)

THE EFFECTS OF HOLY LOVE IN THE HEART
From St. Francis de Sales

“I have come to you to speak about the effects of Holy Love in the heart.”

“Holy Love can transform the most mundane task into a powerful redemptive tool in the Hands of God.”

“Holy Love, when it is accepted in the heart, can transform darkness into the Light of Truth.”

“Holy Love can inspire victory over sin; therefore, Holy Love is the foundation of every conversion of heart.”

“Holy Love is the vehicle of surrender of free will to accept God’s Divine Will.”

“It is Holy Love which helps the soul to recognize God’s grace in every cross.”

“These are sound reasons for souls to accept these Messages and to support this Mission of Holy Love by living the Messages. To do so is to allow your heart to be transformed by Holy Love. To do so is to follow the pursuit of Holy Perfection.”

(January 14, 2012)

“Without Holy Love in the heart, good deeds, penance and reparation are hollow; for Holy Love is the foundation of holiness, righteousness and truth. It is impossible for the soul to comply with the Divine Will of the Father apart from Holy Love, for God’s Will is Holy Love.”

“Holy Love leads the soul away from focus on self to focus on God and neighbor. This leads the heart into balance with the Divine Will. The soul gradually loses sight of how everything affects him – to focus on how everything affects God and neighbor. Such a soul is a jewel in God’s Eyes and mounts swiftly up the Stairway to Holiness. This is the path to perfection.”

SELF-LOVE vs. HOLY LOVE

SELF-LOVE

HOLY LOVE

Is motivated towards self-advantage in thought, word, and deed. Is motivated in every thought, word, and action by love of God, and neighbor as self.
Sees only others’ faults, not his own. Considers himself on the right path—perhaps even humble and virtuous. Sees himself full of imperfections. Is always seeking to be perfected through love. Considers everyone more humble and holy than himself.
Holds a checklist in his heart of every wrong perpetrated against him. Imitates Divine Mercy as best he can. Is compassionate and forgiving.
Is quick to anger and stands vigil over his own rights making certain they are not transgressed. Is patient. Takes note of others’ needs and concerns.
Hangs on to his own opinions refusing to surrender to another viewpoint. Offers his own opinions but listens to others and lends them equal merit with his own.
Takes pride in his own achievements. May even take pride in his spiritual progress. Realizes all things proceed from God; that without God he is capable of no good thing. All good comes from grace.
Sees himself and the world as the be-all/end-all. His only pleasure is thus achieved through the world. Takes joy in storing up heavenly treasure, in growing closer to God and deeper in holiness. Knows the difference between earthly pleasures and spiritual joy.
Uses the goods of the world to satisfy self. Uses the goods of the world to satisfy quest for holiness.
Objects to every cross. Sees trials as a curse. Resents others’ good fortune. Surrenders to the cross through love as Jesus did. Sees crosses as a grace to be used to convert others.
Prays only for himself and his own needs. Prays for all in need.
Cannot accept God’s Will. Becomes bitter over trials. Accepts God’s Will with a loving heart even when difficult.
