A book of prayers to the Holy Face of Jesus
True love for God is fearless love
True love for God is complete and total surrender
Detached from all evil and all things of the world
True love for God is fear of God, so as not to do anything to break or dampen the intimate relationship with him and his Divine Love and his Divine Will
True Love for God is to understand he is Good all the time, even when it involves personal pain and hardship,,
When it involves loss or separation from things and from people in patient expectation of a glorious outcome at a time and in a manner we cannot currently comprehend.
True love for God gives all to God in a perfect fusion of adoration and honor that gives glory to him in all things!
Divine harmony and union,
Intimate and deep,
Reverent and obedient,
Trusting and cooperating with him and with all his created creatures and to share the good news of the glory of God with the world!
God is good all the time!
God who is all, has given all, and his grace flows to us through the cross!
We are complete in Christ and his Cross!
Share the good news so all can know the glory of God through Jesus Christ, who is the way, the truth, and the life!
St John 4:10-26
Christ talks with the Samaritan woman.
“Jesus answered and said to her: If thou didst know the gift of God and who he is that saith to thee: Give me to drink; thou perhaps wouldst have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. The woman saith to him: Sir, thou hast nothing wherein to draw, and the well is deep. From whence then hast thou living water? Art thou greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank thereof, himself and his children and his cattle? Jesus answered and said to her: Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: but he that shall drink of the water that I will give him shall not thirst for ever. But the water that I will give him shall become in him a fountain of water, springing up into life everlasting. The woman said to him: Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come hither to draw. Jesus saith to her: Go, call thy husband, and come hither. The woman answered and said: I have no husband. Jesus said to her: Thou hast said well: I have no husband. For thou hast had five husbands: and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband. This, thou hast said truly. The woman saith to him: Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. Our fathers adored on this mountain: and you say that at Jerusalem is the place where men must adore. Jesus saith to her: Woman, believe me that the hour cometh, when you shall neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, adore the Father. You adore that which you know not: we adore that which we know. For salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh and now is, when the true adorers shall adore the Father in spirit and in truth. For the Father also seeketh such to adore him. God is a spirit: and they that adore him must adore him in spirit and in truth. The woman saith to him: I know that the Messias cometh (who is called Christ): therefore, when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith to her: I am he, who am speaking with thee.”
