A voice in the wilderness – 1

There is not even the slightest spark of reverence in His Presence any longer. All is dead, despite the appearance of being alive, for love in the hearts of this people has grown cold and bitter. Love Himself is neglected and abandoned. Nothing is offered to Him, that He desires; only that which He does not desire – if anything. The flame of true love and true life has gone out in the hearts of this people, because Love in Persona is unwanted. You who really know Him, therefore, love Him “with all your heart and with all your mind and with all your soul and with all your strength” (Dt 6:5; Mt 22:37; Mk 12:30; Lk 10:27), for the most beautiful, tender, patient and loving God is neither loved nor wanted anymore.

Note: Written in the Upper Room, on the vigil of Pentecost.
