Know Who You Are — Intimacy with Christ

Know who you are, as John the Baptist knew who he was, and the gift given to him from heaven to accomplish his mission. He was the Bridegroom’s best man (prophet) preparing the heart of the bride (the Church) to recognize, know and love the Bridegroom. When the Bridegroom appears, John understands he must decrease. His joy is made full.

You, on the other hand, are My bride, the Church, as one with My Mother, the perfect, pure, holy Bride. Your mission, as one with Mary’s, is to bring souls to the foot of the Cross to contemplate the love of their Bridegroom, to look and gaze at the One who has been lifted up and to be healed, restored and made new.  —4/28/11 Simple Path #92 p.257
