Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of JesusMy Mother Mary, and Joseph, my foster father, experienced my absence during three days, something symbolic about the three days that would happen after my death and also about the separation from God that every human being experiences.
Their joy was great when they found me in the Temple and I asked them why they were looking for me, didnít they know that that I had to be in the House of my Father?
My coming into the world was to build the temple of God, I, in my physical presence as the Temple of His Holy Word and Divinity, the one that would be destroyed but also rebuilt in three days with my resurrection; and every human being who is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who was sent to the world after my death to be the counsellor, the guide, the paraclete, the consoler, the light of the conscience that calls every soul to know God.
Everyone who listens to my voice receives a call to holiness. I am the way to the perfection that God expects, thatís why I invite the soul to recollection, prayer, meditation and prayer, so that by these means he may enter in the interior temple where God listens and speaks, where a dialogue is established with the Creator who is always ready to welcome his children.
It is through these visitations to the altar of the interior temple, that the soul receives my blessings and my light; it is there that the Holy Spirit grants his gifts. It is there that I am always doing the work of my Father, who has sent me to raise this humanity from dust and darkness to light, from sin to grace, from the ailments and fragilities of human life to the glory and joy prepared for eternal life.
