The Way of Love for the Lord
Chapter 21. "There is a big Cross on your forehead." (August 9, 1981)
In the middle of summer when the sweltering heat was relentless, I was
doing a customer’s hair and offering up the prayer of life when a middle-aged
woman came into my salon and said,
As I was watching them go, I thought, “I should not leave this situation as it is.” So, I went to see the fortune-teller. There were many people gathering around her. I just sat with them and watched. I started saying a prayer to chase away the devils, sprinkling the holy water silently.
For some time, she was quite excited to interpret people’s divination signs. Then, she gazed at me and said, “You are the one whom God has chosen. There is a big Cross on your forehead… I’ll be right back after using the bathroom. Just a moment.” However, she ran away.
Then, the landlady grumbled, “I know that you believe in God. Why do you have to come here and interfere?” Several people who were present there reproached me, saying they wished the fortune-teller had continued interpreting divination signs.
All went well according to my wish. I felt sorry for them who did not know God when I viewed them through human eyes. I was at a loss on what to do. I apologized to them. Someone from amongst them exclaimed, “Today I witness the Greatness of God.”
“Oh, my Lord, my Love! You who are full of deep lamentation and grief
even today, are waiting for sinners to repent and run back to You. How painful
You must feel in Your Heart for those children who are loved by the Lord but are
not freed from attachments to themselves!
“My lovely daughter! The cunning devils with all their activities and
efforts will try to lead many children of the Church chosen by Me as well as
many children of the world to the road of vanity and superficiality by
instigating their curiosity.
This is why theyare even using fortune-tellers. As the devils know well that I am raising you
as a pure soul so that you may become a witness to My infinite Love, the
fortune-teller ran away out of fear upon seeing you.
Whenever you lower andempty yourself before My dignified Love, I will manifest My power in theinnermost recesses of your soul.
Therefore, follow Me obediently. As you havewon victory over the devils at every moment by responding to My call with ‘Amen’ and relying on Me totally, the seal of the Cross engraved on your forehead will shine forever.”
