35 And James and John the sons of Zebedee, came to him, saying: Master, we desire that whatsoever we shall ask, you will do for us:
Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of JesusThis world is full of spiritual dangers. It is good to work to obtain what is needed physically, but it is better still to work spiritually to obtain salvation. My apostles had moments of pride as every human being does, in which they wanted to feel themselves above others. Power, money, fame and pleasures are the temptations that every human being has to overcome in order to receive my approval.
God is supremely just, for this reason his Kingdom is available to the will of each individual who only has to choose: either the celestial way or the easy way.
The way of the world is open to all human beings, it is easy to walk, it offers everything that exalts the senses, pride and temporal happiness; in fact it is like a current of dirty water that drags towards the abyss and death.
I have come to point my way in order to offer you eternal life. My way is difficult to find, difficult to walk and takes you to the summit of humility, it has the cross as support and its reward is the freedom of the soul, it is a river of living water that offers peace and hope.
Human passions offend God because they create false gods in the flesh and the mind; materialism causes attachment to temporal things at the cost of despising what is spiritual; injustice offends God who is Charity; impurity stains the pure soul that God has given to each one.
All human beings offend God in one way or another; however I have not come to judge but to save, I have not come to condemn but to warn.
Unless you repent you are taking the risk of perishing eternally. But my Mercy is infinitely great; my goodness extends beyond my death on the cross. I want to save the souls that have cost me so much; I only need your cooperation, this is why I ask you to put into practice my teachings.
He who wishes to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven must work humbly without waiting for the reward; he must feel himself always small before God and must be willing to serve his neighbour; all this he does in imitation of me. I guarantee that his labour will not be in vain.
