The surrender of life, children, is not something transitory. True surrender includes the entire consciousness, from the body, the mind and the heart to the soul, the spirit and the essence.
Those who surrender to the Creator are placing in the hands of the Father the direction of their lives and renouncing every personal goal, all of their plans, projects and aspirations, even fulfilling the mission God has entrusted to them. Surrender must be guided by the constant exercise of the self-emptying, by the permanent quest of being nothing and not wanting anything.
Many aspire to fulfill missions that, for themselves, demand total surrender of their lives, as the unconditional and selfless service is. However, before you launch yourselves into this surrender, children, you must meditate from the heart on what it means and, thus, dispose your consciousnesses to something more profound, so that this service may be true and its possible consequences be reasons to consolidate the surrender and not to generate a debt towards God – as it can happen if one of you loses their lives serving.
I tell you that because if you truly meditate and launch yourselves into the selfless service and into consecration with this consciousness that surrender must deepen each day, then you might become instruments of God and this condition will bring you the grace of fulfilling your mission with the correct discernment and protection.
However, if you launch yourselves into an unconscious, impulsive and shallow surrender, you run the risk of not receiving from God the grace and the protection that you need and you will live in constant imprudence, by the lack of discernment.
That is why I tell you it does not matter the task you do or the degree of risk you take, but rather the spiritual and conscious depth of your surrender. That is what will differ the service which will have or not the direct presence of God.
I hope you have understood what I told you.
I leave My Blessing to those who will surrender themselves from the heart.
The Most Chaste Saint Joseph
