Do you despise this My Love?
I am rewarded with your hatred instead of love.
You love sin instead of Me.
You work for your passions but not for Me.
But what did you find in Me worthy of disgust?
Why would not you come to Me?

Do you want goodness for yourself? I have all goodness.
Do you want bliss? I have every happiness.
Do you want beauty? What is more beautiful than Me?
Do you want nobility? Who is higher than the King of Heaven?
Do you want fame? Who is more glorious than Me?
Do you want wealth? I have all the wealth.
Do you want wisdom? I am the Wisdom of God.
Do you want friendship? Who is kinder and more loving than Me, Who laid down His life for all?
Do you want help? Who will help you but Me?
Do you look for a doctor? Who will heal you but Me?
Do you look for joy? Who will cheer you but Me?
Do you look for consolation in sorrow? Who will comfort you but Me?
Do you look for rest? I am the rest for your soul.
Do you look for peace? I am the peace for your soul.
Do you look for life? I am the source of Life.
Do you look for light? I am the Light of the world.
Do you look for truth? I am the Truth.
Do you look for a way? I am the Way.
Do you look for a leader leading unto Heaven? I am the Right Leader.

For what reason should you not come to Me?
Do you dare not to approach Me? I, whom it is easy to approach?
Are you afraid of asking? Whom did I refuse who asked with faith?
Your sins do not allow you? I died for sinners.
Are you bothered with the multitude of your sins? I have plenitude of mercy.
"Come to me, all you that labour and are heavy laden, and l will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28)

Почто ты, человече, Мене оставил?
Почто тебе Возлюбившего отвратился?
Почто паки пристал к врагу Моему?

Помяни, яко тебе ради плоть бых.
Помяни, яко тебе ради от Девы родихся.
Помяни, яко тебе ради младенствовах.
Помяни, яко тебе ради смирихся.
Помяни, яко тебе ради обнищах.
Помяни, яко тебе ради на земле пожих.
Помяни, яко тебе ради гонение претерпех.
Помяни, яко тебе ради злословие, поношение, ругание, бесчестие, раны, заплевание, заушение, насмеяния, укоризненныя страсти приях.
Помяни, яко тебе ради со беззаконными вменихся.
Помяни, яко тебе ради поносною смертию умер.
Помяни, яко тебе ради погребен был.

С небесе снидох, чтобы тебе на небо возвести.
Смирихся, чтобы тебе вознести.
Обнищах, чтобы тебе обогатить.
Обесчестихся, чтобы тебе прославить.
Уязвихся, чтобы тебе исцелить.
Умер, чтобы тебе оживить.

Ты согрешил, а Я грех твой на Себе взял.
Ты виноват, а Я казнь приял.
Ты должник, а Я долг заплатил.
Ты на смерть осужден, а Я за тебя умер.

К сему любовь Моя, милосердие Мое привлекло Мене.
Не мог Я терпеть, чтобы ты страдал в таком злополучии.

Сию ли ты Мою любовь пренебрегаешь?
Вместо любви ненависть воздаешь.
Вместо Мене грех любишь.
Вместо Мене страстям работаешь.

Но что ты сыскал во Мне отвращения достойное?
Чего ради не хочешь ко Мне прийти?

Добра ли себе хочешь? Всякое добро у Меня.
Блаженства ли хочешь? Всякое блаженство у Меня.
Красоты ли хочешь? Что краснейте паче Мене?
Благородства ли хочешь? Что выше Царя небесе?
Славы ли хочешь? Что славнее паче Мене?
Богатства ли хочешь? У Меня всякое богатство.
Премудрости ли хочешь? Я Премудрость Божия.
Дружества ли хочешь? Кто любезнее и любительнее паче Мене, Иже душу за всех положил?
Помощи ли хочешь? Кто поможет кроме Мене?
Врача ли ищешь? Кто исцелит кроме Мене?
Веселия ли ищешь? Кто увеселит кроме Мене?
Утешения ли в печали ищешь? Кто утешит кроме Мене?
Покоя ли ищешь? У Мене обрящеши покой души твоей.
Мира ли ищешь? Аз есмь мир душевный.
Живота ли ищешь? У Мене источник жизни.
Света ли ищешь? Аз есмь свет миру.

Что убо, чего ради не хочешь прийти ко Мне?
Приступить ли не смеешь? К кому удобнейший приступ?

Просить ли опасаешься? Кому Я просящему с верою отказал?
Грехи ли не допускают тебя? Я за грешников умер.
Смущает ли тя множество грехов? Более у Меня милосердия.
