Free will, suffering and Marriage.
Listening to a theological discussion on the proverbs and book of job …I was struck about the moral relationship between God and humans.
Now, I am no Bible expert. I have awareness that you can know the wisdom of God from a point of humility and nothingness. A child can have the full awareness of God and the knowledge of his relationship without prideful theological swelling in the mind. The pride of mind is something we have to tangle with in our lives or disentangle from in Purgatory. Prideful thought without the moral balance of the humble heart becomes matter as much as flamboyant wealth.
God’s relationship with us acts symbolically in our lives. He teaches us by events in our lives. We don’t read this and learn this. Now Catholics wrestle with suffering I believe more than other denominations. Many sects reject the necessity and wisdom of suffering. Catholics have full knowledge through the sacraments. This knowledge comes via symbolism not by gaining knowledge of the written word. Also to note nearly all cases of stigmata are experienced by Catholics.
The relationship between God and humans is parent to child. The love though is much stronger that God feels than we do for our own children. This we will understand after we pass from earth.
Free will is the big component in our relationship with God. Free will is the ultimate gift of love as it is the opposite of abusive authority. On earth, because of free will ,time and space we mostly struggle to live in the divine will ultimately wished for our souls by God.
In the messages my wife received in 2019 God the Father shared his hope of souls turning to him but only to find a sense of dejection and sadness when a soul rejects him or isn’t ready. We got to experience the very human feelings and reactions that Jesus and God the Father experience. This was a revelation but then one realises that we are made in his image so our humanity comes from God it’s not seperate. God the Father feels sadness and variations in feeling. The passion of Jesus in his suffering was very human. Jesus felt psychological pain in accusation rejection and humiliation along with the physical pain.
Between confessions the mind can go through different almost bi polar reactions. This occurs due to sin. Once we sin then this effects our ability to carry our crosses. Then we can go through an internal struggle which finds us fighting with the unfairness of our cross. Having awareness of our crosses and suffering helps the process in our spiritual journeys. I’ve heard it said that God will correct those he loves alot. I believe calmly accepting crosses without complaint like the son of God will lessen the need for God’s adjustments in your life.
My wife isn’t a cerebral person she accepts her pains. She didn’t learn this intellectually it came naturally since she was conceived. All prophets have natural humility this is why I was never chosen to be a prophet. I was given other gifts to help us both as a partnership. Jesus loves her simplicity and nothingness. My journey is to develop humility by suffering and also suffer for the sake of other souls.
So this symbolic drama in all its viscerally real mixture of grace and suffering plays out in all our lives. We make it easier for God by accepting our crosses which God has planted to correct our defects.
Great tips for marriage partners is to pray the rosary at the same time; even down to synchronisation of each word. Marriage is the becoming of one flesh. The synchronization will represent that symbolically. The devil hates this and will in all subtlety seek for couples to pray separately. Both wearing the brown scapular will also symbolise unity which is powerful for protecting a union. Our Blessed Mother can ringfence your marriage by approaching her as a married couple.

Dream from two weeks ago.
About 2 weeks ago I had a dream. I wasn’t terrified by it, although what I saw was terrifying.
First scene was viewing earth from space below me. It was a corner or section of the planet not the whole planet. Below me was just fire everywhere. The area was western Europe ,the mainland.
Next scene was civic disorder and panic. Young men were going around shooting people. I was in the back of a car with my wife but was shot in the leg. We made our way to hospital for treatment but the hospital itself was under fire. I got the impression that the disorder spread like a ‘ domino effect’.
I’ve had a dream before about most of the UK being under water.Parts of the south east relatively unscathed but with houses under water in sections around London and south east.. This particular dream was in September 2020 where I was given a couple of prophetic dreams.
Jesus to The Little Prophet : ‘Make reparation for the sins of others’
September 9th 2019
I was just thinking about ‘what is the meaning of the life of a Saint’. When we think of and see pictures of Saints we in this world can view them as Angelic and Holy. That’s true I guess but one thing connects all Saints: Suffering.
To be a Saint one must suffer. Jesus told us Saints of old relished the chance to suffer as it would help Jesus save souls.
The lives of St Veronica Guiliani and Padre Pio were painful. They were hounded sometimes directly by the enemy or he would work through others around them or events to make their lives difficult.
With Saints God has chosen these blessed souls to lead others to him. Jesus will require suffering from them and things will be allowed to happen to them to cause suffering.
There is the struggle with the cross and then coming to terms with your cross. We discover that accepting our cross with trusting docility lightens our load. Fighting against your cross causes more hardship. Guardian Angels were always there to help prop them up when weary.
A Saint I think would need to be made a genetically sensitive person as the pain they suffer has to be felt deeply and viscerally in service to Jesus.
Padre Pio knew the 3rd secret and that the apostasy would be at the top of the church. Amongst other torments one of his crosses was the hierarchy of the church who because of their suspicion banned him from saying masses for a period. Padre Pio willingly suffered and said that he took on this suffering because of what he saw that was to come of the church during the end times. The church itself in irony became an instrument of suffering for him.
St Veronica had a deep love of Jesus and identified so deeply with his suffering and realised that Jesus was still suffering. She wanted to help Our Lord and willingly suffered for him.
There would of been a psychological crisis in the life of a saint in accepting their cross but a metanoia once this understanding was accepted and understood.
