St. Catherine of Siena

St. Catherine of Siena says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come to lay bare a great obstacle on the journey through the Chambers of the United Hearts. It is, perhaps, the primary obstacle to Holy Love in the heart. It is self-centeredness. The self-centered person views all things in relation to how they affect himself. His own self-interests are his priority which displaces God in his heart. This disordered self-love is the enemy of Holy Love.”

“Such depth of self-love is based upon lack of humility. It is the inordinate self-love which leads to every sin – to name a few: jealousy, unforgiveness, impatience and distorted thinking. Often such a soul gives in to a pouting spirit – a disordered woundedness that will not practice forgiveness.”

“Jesus has sent me today to point these things out. Every soul needs to search his heart, for all hearts are open to self-centeredness at some point in life.”

“Further, Jesus wants people to know that self-centeredness distorts the truth, urging the soul to form a distorted truth to fit his own needs. This compromised truth is a lying spirit. It leads to disunity and false discernment.”

“So, you must see how a self-centered heart is the work of evil.”
