The Child Jesus
The first Sermon by Jesus at the age of 3 in his exile in Egypt.
Jesus told Luisa:
'My exile in Egypt was not without conquests'.  

When I was about 3 years old from our little hovel, I could hear the children playing and shouting in the street; and as little as I was I went out in their midst. As soon as they saw me they ran around me competing with themselves for who could get close to Me. Because of my beauty the enchantment of my gaze and the sweetness of my voice were such that they felt enraptured for love of me. So they would throng around me loving me so much that they could not detach themselves from me. I too loved these children so I gave my first sermon to these little ones, adapting myself to their tiny capacity- since when love is true, it not only tries to make itself known but also to give all that may render one happy in time and Eternity. More so since possessing innocence they could understand me. And would you like to know what my sermon was about?

I said to them - My children listen to me. I love you very much and I want to make known about your origin. Look up at Heaven, up there you have a celestial Father who loves you very much and who was not satisfied to be your Father only from Heaven – to guide you, to create for you a Sun, a Sea, a flowery Earth to make you happy; But loving you with exuberant love He wanted to descend inside your hearts, to form His Royal Residence in the depth of your souls making himself sweet prisoner of each one of you. But to do what? To give life to your heartbeat, breath, and motion. So as you walk, He walks in your steps; He moves in your little hands, he speaks in your voice… and because he loves you very much, as you walk, or move – now he kisses you, now he squeezes you, now he hugs you and carries you triumphantly as his own dear children. How many hidden kisses and hugs our Celestial Father does not give you!

But since being inattentive you didn’t let your kiss meet his kiss and your hugs meet his paternal embrace, He remained with pain that his children neither hugged him nor kissed him. My dear children do you know what this Celestial Father wants from you? He wants to be recognised within you as having his own place in the centre of your souls; and since he gives you everything – there is nothing he does not give to you, - He wants your love in everything you do. Love him! Let love be always in your little hearts, your lips, your works, in everything - and this is the delicious food which you will give to his Paternity.

He loves you very much and wants to be loved. Nobody can ever love you as he loves you. It is true that you have a Father on earth but how different from the love of the Celestial Father! Your father on Earth does not always follow you, watch over your steps, or sleep together with you; neither does he palpitate within your heart and if you fall: if you sleep, he watches over you; and even if you play and do something impertinent, he is always with you and knows everything you do. Therefore love him very, very much! and getting more excited I told them, "Give Me your word that you will always, always Love Him!" Say together with me; "We love you Our Father who art in the Heavens, We Love You Our Father Who dwells in Our Hearts!"

Luisa Piccarreta

Jesus told Luisa; My Daughter, at my words some of the children remained moved, some enraptured, some squeezed themselves to me so much that they wouldn’t let me go. I made them feel the palpating Life of My Celestial Father inside their little hearts and they rejoiced and made feast because they no longer have a Father who was far away from them, but inside their own hearts. And to make them firm and give them the strength to depart from Me.

I blessed those children renewing upon them Our creative power – Invoking the power of the Father, the Wisdom of myself the Son and the virtue of the Holy Spirit – and I told them go – You will return, so they left – but they would come back the following days almost in a crowd – a throng – of children, they set themselves to spy when I was about to go out and to see what I was doing in our hovel. And when I went out they would clap their hands, making feast and shouting so much that my Mother, would come out the door to see what was happening.

Oh how enraptured she would remain, in seeing Her Son speaking to those children with so much Grace, She felt her heart bursting with love and could see the first fruits of my Life down here, since none of these children who listened to me – not a single one of them was lost. Knowing they had a Father inside their hearts was like a deposit, to be able to own the Celestial Fatherland – to Love that Father who was in Heaven as well.
