Divine Encouragement and Inspiration (1)

Issue published on August 18, 2010

Generally updated every other day

Just imagine if Our Lord Jesus Christ is reassuring and encouraging you thus....

I am your Friend. The Companion of the dreary ways of life.

I rob those ways of their grayness and horror. I transform them. Even in earthly friendships the common way, the weary way, the steep way, may seem a way to Heaven if the presence of some loved human friend transforms them.

Let the Sabbath calm enwrap your mind and heart. Let it be a rest from the worry and fret of life, a halt by the busy highway when you seek some rest and shade.

Have you ever realized the wonder of the friendship you can have with Me?

Have you ever thought what it means to be able to summon at will the God of the World?

Even with a privileged visitor to an earthly king there is the palace ante-chamber, and the time must be at the pleasure of the king.

But to My subjects I have given the right to enter My Presence when they will, nay more they can summon Me to bedside, to workshop - and I am there.

Could Divine Love do more? Your nearest earthly friend cannot be with you on the instant. Your Lord, your Master, your Divine Friend - Yes.

When men seek to worship Me they think of the worlds I rule over, of creation, of mighty law and order - and then they feel the awe that precedes worship.

To you I say feel awe, feel the desire to worship Me in wondering amazement. But think too of the mighty, tender, humble condescension of My Friendship. Think of Me in the little things of everyday life.

miguel de Portugal commented then:

However, some conditions do apply:

25 And there went great multitudes with him. And turning, he said to them: 26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. 27 And whosoever doth not carry his cross and come after me, cannot be my disciple. [Lk: 14:25-27]


33 So likewise every one of you that doth not renounce all that he possesseth, cannot be my disciple. 34 Salt is good. But if the salt shall lose its savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned? 35 It is neither profitable for the land nor for the dunghill, but shall be cast out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
[Lk: 14:33-35]

Of course what is meant by "hate this one and that one" is that God must come first - before one's father, mother, wife, children, brethren, sisters and, yes, one's self too.

The closer we get to the fulfillment of the requirements of discipleship as we see in the readings above, the more today's Divine Revelations will be made manifest in our lives.

A Reminder: Men of Galilee, why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven. [Acts 1:11]

(1) Although miguel de Portugal was not the original transmission instrument for the above, he assures the faithful, from first hand personal knowledge, that what is read above is true and from Our Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit of God will confirm it to those who have ears to hear and eyes to see.
