Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says: "My children, you are now in a penitential season* in preparation for the celebration of Easter.** Therefore, let us discuss penance. The best penance is to fast from your own will. This requires the effort in your heart to please Me above all else - to love Me above all else. This is, after all, the first of My Commandments. To accomplish this, you must make the effort not to see how everything affects you yourself. Place the world and all its allurements last in the priorities of your heart. Surrender the ill effects of any illness that may befall you."
"This is also a recipe for peace of heart. Such a resolve in your heart brings you deeper into trust in My Divine Will. So much time and energy is wasted when souls rely only on themselves and human effort. I remind you, I am more powerful than anyone or anything. It is I who manage the circumstances of your earthly existence. Your best decision, then, is to abandon yourselves to Me. Do not look to the future with dread, but with loving trust. I await your surrender of your will every morning."
* Lent - a penitential season of forty days, not counting Sundays. This year Lent began on March 6th - Ash Wednesday, and will end on April 20th - Holy Saturday.
** April 21st.
Read Colossians 3:5-10+
Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. In these you once walked, when you lived in them. But now put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and foul talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his practices and have put on the new man, who is being renewed in knowledge after the image of his creator.
