61 Many of his disciples, hearing it, said: This saying is hard, and who can hear it?
Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of JesusMany of my disciples rejected my teachings because they did not stop to think where they were coming from, many still doubt because they donít understand that I speak not just as a human being, but as the Word of God. All my teachings present a challenge to those who listen to me and everyone who listens must change so that he can be my disciple.
My words are spirit and life; spirit because they come from God and life because they have the promise of salvation to those who receive them with a humble heart.
The human body and all the human activities have a temporal mission which are part of the plan that God has for the soul; the soul which is spiritual, contains the breath of God, needs to be guided by my Word which is Spirit, and needs to receive life that can only be obtained from me, who am Life.
The man of the world is satisfied with the things of the world, by contrast, he who listens to my word becomes spiritual and wishes to know me more and more, therefore he is filled with hunger and thirst for the spirit and can only be satiated when he finds me.
My words quench the thirst of the soul, however the soul must feed of me with the spiritual food on the Eucharistic table of the Church. This language remains hard to accept for all those who are too intellectual, this is why only those who have a humble heart are called by my Father and thus, filled with faith they come to me to receive eternal life.
Peter recognized the value of my Word, the same as my faithful followers. My words are words of eternal life; they are not only words, but the Voice of God that speaks in spirit to the soul. Many still argue about the value of my Word, and misinterpret it coming to erroneous conclusions.
He who desires to know me, must come to the fountain of life that I have left in the Church, where my word is fulfilled and there is a daily offering of the perpetual sacrifice that takes away the sins of the world; where bread and wine is consecrated as my flesh and blood for the life of the soul.
