DIVINE SWEETNESS

Guardian angelFROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

V7 – DECEMBER 3, 1906 – “…Everything in you must be sweetness and peace, in such a way that it may be said of you that which is said about Me: that nothing but milk and honey flows within Me, symbolizing sweetness with honey, and peace with milk. I am so filled and soaked with them, that they pour out from my eyes, from my mouth, and from all of my works. And if you are not likewise, I feel dishonored by you, because, while the One who is all peace and sweetness dwells within you, you do not honor Me by showing even the slightest shadow of a resentful and restless heart. I love this sweetness and peace so much, that even if it were about something great concerning my honor and glory, I do not want, I never approve, resentful, violent, fiery manners, but rather, sweet and peaceful manners. In fact, sweetness alone is that which binds hearts like a chain, in such a way that they cannot unbind themselves. It is like pitch that sticks to them and they cannot free themselves, and are forced to say: ‘In this soul there is the finger of God, for we cannot act otherwise.’ And then, if I do not like a resentful manner, not even creatures will like it. If one speaks about or deals with things, even of God, with manners that are not sweet and peaceful, it is a sign that he does not have his passions in order; and one who does not keep himself in order, cannot order others. Therefore, be careful with anything which is not sweetness and peace, if you do not want to dishonor Me”

V10 – October 26, 1911 – “My daughter, I can pour out bitternesses with everyone, but the Outpourings of Love, the Sweetnesses, I can pour only into one who Loves Me and who is all Love for Me. Don’t you know that Love too is a Necessity for Me, and that I Need it more than anything?”

V20 – November 1, 1926“Oh! how the sun—or rather, My Will in the sun—through plants, fruits and flowers, offers true terrestrial happiness to the human generations. And if they do not enjoy it fully, it is because they have moved away from that Will that reigns in the sun; and the human will, placing itself against the Divine, breaks its happiness. And My Will, veiled in the light of the sun, while loving and singing the praises of Our Divine Qualities, from the height of its sphere says to man: ‘In everything you do, be always light, just as I am, so that the light may convert you completely into heat, and you may become as one single flame of love for your Creator. Look at me: by being always light and heat, I possess sweetness; so much so, that I communicate it to the plants, and from the plants to you. You too, if you are always light and heat, will possess the Divine Sweetness; you will have no more bile and angers in your heart; you will possess the flavors and the different tints of the Beauties of the Supreme Being. You will be sun like me; more so, since God made me for you, and you were made for Him, therefore it is right that you be more sun than I.’

“See, My daughter, how many things you have to do united with My Will in that sphere of the sun. You have to sing the praises, love and glorify Our Light, Our Love, Our infinite Sweetnesses, Our Innumerable Flavors and Our Incomprehensible Beauty. And you have to impetrate for creatures all the Divine Qualities that the sun contains, so that, in finding the Divine Qualities in their midst, My Will may come to reign unveiled, with Its full triumph, into the midst of the human generations.

V28 – September 20, 1930 – “…courage, abandon yourself into My Arms, and I will make more Light, more Refulgent, Arise from My Divine Will; and as It takes the form of cradle, I will Rock you in It to Communicate to you My Divine Rest. And with Its light and with Its heat, It will destroy the slow poison of your bitternesses, changing them into Sweetnesses and into Fount of Contentments. And resting in the cradle of My Divine Will, you will take sweet rest; and upon waking up, you will find that bitternesses and oppressions have been cast away from you, and I will keep you in My Arms with your usual Sweetness and Serenity, to make the Life of My Divine Will Grow more in you.”

V33 – July 8, 1934 – “The sun would be an image. If its light did not possess heat, sweetness, tastes, fragrances, colors, it would not be able to form the beautiful rainbow of colors, the variety of sweetnesses, the suavity of its tastes and fragrances. If it gives them to the earth, it is because it possesses them, and if it did not possess them, it would not be true life of light, but light sterile and without fecundity.

            “The same for the creature, if she does not cede the place of her whole interior to My Will, she will not be able to posses Its Love that is never extinguished, the Divine Sweetnesses and Tastes, and everything that composes the Life of My Will. Therefore do not keep back anything of yours for yourself, and you will give Us the great glory of having a Life of Our Will on earth, veiled by your mortal covering, and you the Great Good of possessing It. You will feel flow in your covering, as rapid sea, the Happiness, the Joys, the Firmness in Good, the Love that always Loves, the Sweetnesses, the Taste. The Conquests of your Jesus will also be yours. Your coverings will continue the Office of sufferings down here, but they will have a Life of Divine Will that will sustain them, and it will serve to develop the Life of Its Divine Conquests and Victories in the human coverings. Therefore, always forward in My Will.”

Paragraph 163 – III. The Characteristics of Faith

163      Faith makes us taste in advance the light of the beatific vision, the goal of our journey here below. Then we shall see God “face to face,” “as he is.”

PSALMS  30:20 – O how great is the multitude of thy sweetness, O Lord, which thou hast hidden for them that fear thee! Which thou hast wrought for them that hope in thee, in the sight of the sons of men.

JOEL 3:17,18 – [17]And you shall know that I am the Lord your God, dwelling in Sion my holy mountain: and Jerusalem shall be holy and strangers shall pass through it no more. [18] And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down sweetness, and the hills shall flow with milk: and waters shall flow through all the rivers of Juda:

WISODM 16:20,21

[20]Instead of which things thou didst feed thy people with the food of angels, and gavest them bread from heaven prepared without labour; having in it all that is delicious, and the sweetness of every taste.

[21] For thy sustenance shewed thy sweetness to thy children, and serving every man’ s will, it was turned to what every man liked.
