Message from the Lord
to Sister Felicitas
Lord, do you have anything else on Your mind? We don’t always have to talk about me. I’m not important.
“Well, My daughter, at Christmas time there are always many topics that concern Me. One of the smallest is actually Myself. One must expect Me to think a lot during this time, about what it was like to come on Earth and to show Myself to you so clearly for the first time – but no. The quarrels of families, the food, the tolerable churchgoers, the slippery ice and accidents; it’s almost as if all of the stuff you get exaggerated in your TV programs, is what bothers Me the most.
“Why? Why does an almighty God concern Himself with such small things?
“Now because you are My beloved children, and that is how I see your stress. And you know, I wish you all would slow down and just stop for a moment. Is it really not possible without gifts? Does it have to be the biggest goose, the brightest light and the most beautiful church? Can’t it just be an evening of contemplation, a walk, or a round of prayer with the family? Do they all have to waste their precious energy, which I gave them, on such perishable things? Now that concerns me a lot.
“Every year, I knock at the window of the souls and look in to see if anyone is paying attention to Me. And every year I realize with horror, that most people forget Me at Christmas. Especially those who are believers, try so hard to prepare a good festival according to the standards of the world, that they no longer recognize Jesus in their midst; because of all the ‘Martha’ in them. So I go from house to house, year after year, only to end up alone again, abandoned in a stable somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Because the poor, who don’t have anything – they think about what they have, and they have Me because I don’t cost anything. I don’t ask for anything; no gifts, no suits or candles. I just want hearts, and each of you has one of those. Only one. So that you can only give it to one. Who will you give it to this year? Can it be Me?”
Wow, Lord, that’s so touching (Sister Felicitas said to Him.) Can I share this with the others?
“For sure.” Jesus answered,“Maybe they will understand.”
Then Sister concludes:
Thank you, Darling, and… my heart is Yours, and I will try to the best of my ability to make this heart all Yours. For Christmas and forever! I love You! Come into the dwelling place of my heart.
