The Liberating Power Of God's Love
The redemption is the work of love. I loved in the face of hatred. I loved in the face of death. I loved even in the netherworld, where the just of the ages awaited My coming among them. It is by love that I vanquished hell, by love that I triumphed over death, by love that I undid what Satan, in his envy, had plotted against the creatures whom I so love and whom My Father destined for the praise of His glory.
Love is not a feeling; it is an act of the will, a movement of the heart, a glance of hope directed to My Father-for where there is love, there is confidence, and where there is confidence, the victory of love is assured.
