Quotation of St. Anthony of Padua


Everyone longs to give himself completely to someone, to have a deep soul relationship with another, to be loved thoroughly and exclusively. But God, to the Christian says, "No, not until you are satisfied with living for Me and being loved by Me alone and having an intensely personal and unique relationship with Me alone. I love you my child, and until you discover that only in Me is your satisfaction, you will not be capable of the perfect human relationship that I have planned for you.

I want you to stop planning and stop wanting, and allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan ever existing-one that you cannot even imagine. I want you to have the best. Please allow Me to bring it to you-just keep watching Me, expecting the greatest things-keep experiencing that satisfaction in Me knowing that I AM-keep learning and listening to the things that I tell you.

You must wait. Do not be anxious. Do not worry. Do not look around at the things others have gained for themselves or that I have given them. Do not look at the things you want. Just keep looking at Me or you will miss what I want to show you. And then, when you are ready, I will surprise you with a love far more wonderful than any you would ever dream of.

You see, until you are ready (and even at this minute I desire to have you both ready at the same time), until you are both satisfied with Me and the life that I have prepared for you, you will not be able to experience the love that exemplifies our relationship with Me-and this is perfect love.

And, dear one, I want you to have this most wonderful love. I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with Me and to enjoy the everlasting union of beauty and love. I AM GOD. Believe and be satisfied."

-- St. Anthony of Padua
