Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."
"I have come, as Jesus directs, to speak to you - all of you - about the insidious poison of spiritual pride. This poison eats away at genuine virtue, as the soul tries to take credit for God's inner action within him. Whenever you hear 'the Holy Spirit inspired me', or 'Jesus told me this', you are meeting spiritual pride head-on."
"These inspirations need to be hidden between the soul and God - not flaunted in public to impress others. If God wishes His inner actions be made known, He will make it so."
"Spiritual pride tries to take credit for God's Work. In reality, no one is deserving of Heavenly inspiration. Sometimes people think they are being inspired by the Holy Spirit, when they are being deceived by evil who disguises himself as good. When the soul is so eager to believe in himself and his own inspirations, he is easily misled."
"Accept My cautions today as Motherly Love and beware of trying to impress others with your holiness."
