Here are some of my favourite words of Jesus, recorded in this book by a priest who encountered Jesus at adoration:
“Act with courage, with audacity, with confidence. Act as a man, a man of God, a man configured to Christ, a man anointed by the Holy Spirit.”
“One who desires to seek My Eucharistic Face, one who desires to draw near to My open Heart, is never far from the tabernacle… I welcome his desire to abide in My presence. I give him the grace of My presence in the most secret part of his soul. There he will find Me, and there he will be able to adore Me.”
“…the action of the Eucharist renews My sacrifice upon the Cross, and that I am present upon the altar as upon the Cross, as both Priest and Victim. It is the whole of My sacrifice of love that unfolds before their eyes.”
“…find in them [the saints] a true friendship, a friendship that is all pure, a friendship that does not disappoint… Do not cease invoking My saints and teach others to seek from them the help they need in the trials of this life on earth.”
“…be adorers in spirit and in truth… abide, at every moment, before My Eucharistic Face. Do not forsake My Heart that beats with love, that wants only to pour out torrents of mercy upon those who draw near to My real presence.”
“For too long you have been far from Me, without being able to keep Me company, without being able to hear all that I wished to say to you. But now, the moment has come. Now and henceforth, I am speaking to you, and I shall speak to you, so that many may be brought back to Me, and in Me, find healing and peace.”
“You will find My suffering Face in the Eucharist. My head bowed to say “yes” to the Father: you will also find it in the Eucharist. And My pierced and open Heart from which flows the gift of the Holy Spirit for the salvation of the whole world and the joy of the Church — it is in the Eucharist that you will find it.”
“As for yourself, do not fear. I am opening before you a path that leads to life in abundance, and no one will be able to contest this life.”
“At the right time the path will open before you, and you will have great joy in following it. Everything will be clear, because all will have been prepared in advance by the foresight of My merciful love and by the interventions of My most holy Mother. On that day you will have nothing to fear.”
“Live these days in a pressing, constant prayer. Draw closer to My Sacred Heart. Drink from the refreshing streams of My love. Allow yourselves to be prepared by My secret but so effacacious action in you.”
“Great graces are in store for you, but to receive them you must be very little, like children who have a limitless confidence in the love of their papa. When you seek to reason out everything, to know everything ahead of time, to control everything by human means, you keep Me from acting as the God of love that I am. I ask neither for ability nor great preparations on your part; I ask only for confidence, your confidence in Me, in the love of My open Heart for each one of you.”
“When nothing is clear, when nothing is foreseeable, it is the moment to make many acts of confidence.”
“…will take the path that I have always wanted for him. It was for this work that everything served as a preparation, including his own sins.”
“My design is one, but each person will have a part in its realisation. For this, you must all be humble, little, and suspended on My word. I will not fail you, I will not leave you without light.”
O Jesus, King of Love, I put my trust in Thy merciful goodness.
O Holy Spirit, Soul of my soul, I adore Thee. Enlighten me, guide me, strengthen me, console me. Establish my soul in Truth. O Thou, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, I consecrate this day to Thee, O Divine Paraclete. Today, I desire to live in Thy presence, attentive to Thy inspirations, and obedient to Thy voice. O Holy Spirit, come into my life through Mary. Renew and invigorate me. Sanctify me.
Here I am, Lord Jesus! I heard your call and I have come to find you in the Sacrament of Your love.
“You could have come sooner. I was waiting for you. I am always waiting for you… If only they [priests] knew what awaits them in My presence: the plentitude of mercy, rivers of living water to cleanse them, to invigorate their priesthood, to sanctify them.”
“This is the call that I addressed to you, and, with the call, I always give the grace to correspond to it.”
“Accustom yourself to giving Me the best of your time.”
“It is My Heart that waits for you in the tabernacle; it is My gaze that, full of tenderness, fixes itself, from the tabernacle, on those who draw near to it.”
“I am ablaze to be for each one [of my priests] the Friend whom they seek, the Friend with whom they can share everything, the Friend to whom they can tell everything, the Friend who will weep over their sins without, for a moment, ceasing to love them.”
“It is in the Eucharist that I wait…as physician and as remedy. If they are sick in their body or in their soul, let them seek Me out, and I will heal them of the evil that afflicts them.”
“To those who come to Me, I will give love and holiness. And in this shall My Father be glorified. And this shall come to pass through the intimate action of My Spirit. Where I am present in the Sacrament of My love, there also is the Spirit of the Father and of the Son. It is by the Holy Spirit that My Eucharistic presence is My glorious presence to the Father in heaven, and it is by the Holy Spirit that My Eucharistic presence touches the souls who adore Me to unite them to Me, and bear them up even before My Father’s face.”
“This is how I would have you pray for the time being. Take the time to come before Me. Seek My Face. When you pray in this way I will draw you close to My Heart. Pray using My Mother’s Rosary, even when you feel that your prayer is empty or mechanical, or when you are beset by distractions. The decision to pray pleases My Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of My Mother.
The time you offer to us, when you pray as you did tonight, becomes precious in our eyes and is of immense benefit to your soul and to the souls for whom you pray. I see all of those for whom you prayed tonight – those whom you named and those whom you did not name – and I bless each one as I bless you now…”
“I have chosen you and My designs on your life will be fulfilled. The time is coming when you will praise and thank Me for doing for you according to the promises I have made you. Trust Me and let nothing keep you from seeking My Face and My Heart in prayer. I bless you.”
“Your prayer pleases Me. It is inspired by the Holy Spirit in you. The Holy Spirit facilitates the conversation with Me that is the expression of our friendship. Those who draw near to Me with confidence and simplicity, seeking My Face and longing for the warmth of the fire that blazes in My Heart – they are led and moved by the Holy Spirit.”
“This has already begun, even though you may not always feel that you are living in My friendship, and in the intimacy of My most holy Mother. Our eyes never leave you, not even for a moment, and our Hearts are united in loving affection for you, even as they were for My beloved disciple and friend, Saint John. Live in this grace. Do not refuse what we would give you in abundance. Remain confident. We bless you, My Mother’s hand in Mine. We bless you, and those for whom you have asked our blessing.”
