“I have spoken so many, many times through this instrument, this child, through this woman in the world. I am Saint Alphonsus Liguori.
Men try to debate on proof. Men are not capable of such determination for a Miracle in the world as Great as This One is.
So many men try to capture the Value of what is going on where you are now, but they feel that it would be too trying, too tiresome to become involved, because they do not want to spend the time in such a way as you do. They feel that the world offers a lot for them and that the world offers it in a more generous way, and by this I mean those who are on the outside preaching and teaching, and many times for selfish motives, but also because they like the idea of being able to capture the minds and the abilities and the monetary values of other people in the world.
When I walked the world, I walked in a specific manner. I spoke many times to many men who perhaps were much more intelligent than I was, but many times lacked wisdom in their efforts, in their practices, and of course, in how they carried out their vocations of life. No one said, ‘Alphonsus, you are great,’ and I did not feel that I was great, but I knew in my heart that wisdom was the key in so many areas of everyday life.
Wisdom is an important part of practicality. Wisdom is an important part of understanding what Faith is all about, Faith that you cannot see, Faith that you cannot feel, but Faith that is within your being. You must rely on that feeling within you, the proof of God, the Beauty of God, and the destiny for which God intended your Soul to return to Him.
You must understand that working in small ways, doing things that others would not want to do, taking the time to be a part of Something such as The Miracle Of Saint Joseph, brings great merit, gives you hope that you may not be able to understand at the moment, but it is there, it is within you, it is in your Soul, it is in your ability to pray in a different way, it is in your desire to become a Saint.
Hope is surrounding you with All the Words, with All the Teachings, with All the Direction that We Here in the Heavens have passed on to you, have forwarded to you, have driven into your being, by the Power of The Heavenly Father.
So many men in the world are destined for great things in the world, but sometimes these men lack wisdom. They lack the capability to proceed because they lack faith in themselves and they lack the Faith in a Higher Being.
Sometimes a man, with his intelligence, tries to conquer another man’s mind. He tries to inject in the other man’s mind what he feels he knows to be right, but he does not have that one thing, that one stimulating factor that could encourage the other person to see better, feel better, understand better, and that is the Faith in a God, The God, The One God, Faith in the fact that ‘a Portion of The God’ is in every human being born to the earth.
You live in a time worse than Sodom and Gomorrah. You do not know Sodom and Gomorrah as it truly was, but you live in a time, not of great prayer and effort, you live in a time when so many people depend upon other people’s Faith. They do not develop their own Faith. They live on the words of other people, they live on the direction of other people, because they do not take the initiative to develop within themselves hope, hope in What God is All About; Faith, Faith in the True Existence of the Supernatural, and yes, devotion to prayer.
Prayer is a comforting thing to mankind. It has always been and it always will be. But so many men dictate prayer that is full of self-love. It would be good to learn to pray for the good of one’s Soul and ignore prayer for other things. It would be good to understand, it would be enlightening to begin to practice kneeling by your bed, saying, ‘God, I love You; thank You for the day.’
It would be strengthening if you were to say, as you awaken in the morning:
‘Good morning, God, thank You for this day. I will do all I can to make You proud of me. I will do all I can to make You feel good about me. God, give me the strength to endure anything that comes my way, but also, give me the hope and the desire to pray.’
There are so many ways you can look to The Father and there are so many times during the day you can say:
‘I love You, God, thanks for making me be born, for this gives me a chance to one day become a Saint and stand with You forever, not just in one day.’ So be it.”
