St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
Have you ever stopped to consider that likely vast quantities of people today call themselves Christians, servants and children of God, but miss the point of what God desires of them in their relationship with Him? I mean, what if He wishes to be told by us that we love Him, to utter the words "I love you, Lord" each day in a moment of quiet meditation, and that, no matter if things are going our way or not.
Does God want our love, even wait for our love? "Our" love! We humans so weak and small in comparison to him. ...
Actually it is so sad. More sad than we can perhaps comprehend. That days go by that seemingly a world of people on our planet He has made, do not stop and with our lips mouth the words, "God, you are great. You are wonderful. I do not understand the psychology of how this can possibly be important to You, from soneone as small as I. But yes, my Lord, my Creator and my God, I love You. I will speak the greatest words I can say in a lifetime. Yes God, I love you."
Maybe one way of learning how to show love to our husbands, our wives, our children and neighbors, is to begin by saying it to God. Surely the rest will follow.
"It is our part to seek, His to grant what we ask; ours to make a beginning, His to bring it to completion; ours to offer what we can, His to finish what we cannot."
Be not afraid to tell Jesus that you love Him; even though it be without feeling, this is the way to oblige Him to help you, and carry you like a little child too feeble to walk.
