Right prayer and service.

Right prayer and service.

The feast of Corpus Christi 9. June 1955. B.D. NR. 6280.

The believing prayer of a child rises up to heaven and reaches my ear - and its prayer will be granted. And still so few men turn this privilege to practical use, because through habituation to the outer form they no longer experience the power of a prayer in the spirit and in the truth. Only great trouble can still move them to do it, to speak words out of their heart, which reach my ear, for great trouble lets them find to me seeking help. And I bless them, when they now drop every outer form and speak with me, like a child speaks to the father. But I pay no attention to thoughtless prayers, and they are still spoken along extremely often - as I do not pay attention to all that, what pious beliefs are to express, but does without all deeper thought. For that reason I have demanded from you, that you are to call me in the spirit and in the truth - because everything is a horror to me, what is pretence and outer form, what you men can certainly feign among yourselves to yourselves, but is never able to deceive me. And you believe to pay tribute to me with empty pomp, with ceremonial acts, with a service outwardly. But I do not look at all this, while a simple, believing prayer to me sounds lovingly to me and pleases me well. And such a prayer can be sent up to me everywhere and at all times; it will always reach me and be granted. How simple it is, to honour me, when you just erect an altar for me in your heart, on which you show me love - when you hold a quiet, but intimate dialogue with me, recommending yourselves to me, request my favour, when you give your heart to me and always long for my presence. Then you pray "in spirit and in truth." Then I am also with you, because I will always be with my child, which sends its loving thoughts to the father. But I detest every outer form, since it is extremely easy only a pretence for a loveless, indifferent attitude, which brings about ruin to men. Moreover you misjudge me, your God and father, when you believe that I - like you men - want to be honoured through outer splendour and glamour. The whole splendour and magnificence are at my disposal, and I want to give you everything, when you just offer your love as counter gift to me. For I just long for this your love, but which you do not prove to me through outer forms, but which I want to discover in the heart of man - which is unselfishly turned towards the neighbour and consequently also proves your love for me. A loving heart is for me the most beautiful mark of honour; only a loving heart speaks words in the spirit and in the truth, and a loving heart only is seen by me as my child, to which also belongs my whole love - but which can now also request from me everything and will never be disappointed, for it believes in me, and its faith I will not let be wrecked.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6280.
