Ecce dilectus meus (Mt 12:18)

The circumstances can be difficult. The sufferings can put you down. The people can fight against you. But you always can escape and find shelter at the God's side.
Firstly, you need to name your problems and face them bravely. Secondly, you are to stay with your friends and help the needy. Since there are also people who love you and whom you love. Thirdly, listen to the Word of God which can be your strength and light. Thus, you realize that you are created and chosen by God. So you are never alone. Furthermore, you are loved by the Lord. Jesus Christ takes delight in you and places his Spirit upon you. 
Consequently, you are also called to rejoice and to share the Good News among people. They do not have to follow you. But you can be gentle and kind towards all of them. You should neither cry nor force them to do anything. Your good example is enough. 
Be like Jesus who was humble and trustful even when he was abandoned by his own friends. Keep hope and faith. Do not give up. In this way, you are to overcome all the difficulties and find place in the Kingdom of God.

In vinculis caritatis (Hos 11:4)

God the Father loves you from the beginning. You are created from love and for love. Because you are a child of God, you should not escape from the embrace of the Father. You'd rather come closer and closer to him. 
Do not look for anything what can give you happiness on the earth. Since the true happiness you can find only in your God. Everything you have is a gift - your health, friends and family. Each good person is a messenger of the divine love towards you. You are able to feel God's love not only through people but also through all the creatures. Everywhere in the universe you can search for the signs of the eternal love of God. 
Obviously, as human being you are too small and incapable of seeing God face to face. Nevertheless, you are enriched from God's hands and every day of your life you can be astonished more and more. For the Holy One is always present among you. Give him thanks and praise him wholeheartedly from the morning of your life to the evening.

Audi (Ps 50:7)

God the Father speaks to us through the divine Word and makes us hear his message. However, very often our heart is not eager to listen to his words. We'd rather follow the advice of other people who may seduce us. In addition, our own mind produces many solutions which differ from the God's word. Therefore, we commit sins and break commandments. In our opinion, we know what to do and try to choose pleasure. But sometimes the difficult road is much better for the salvation of our soul. 
All our sincere prayers are precious before God. But we also should remember that our own will is less important than God's holy will. We can neither pray nor offer anything for God in order to receive what we want. It does not work like that. Because God is our good and loving Father, he never gives us anything what hurts and makes us suffer. He always chooses the best way and the greatest happiness for all his beloved ones. If he cares for all the animals and plants, how much more he takes care of the human beings? 
Overall, we should read the Holy Scripture and search for the answers carefully. There is no better way to communicate with God. To get the contact with the Lord our hearts must be cleansed and washed in the ocean of the divine mercy. Otherwise, we will not keep his words deep in our hearts. Finally, let us remember that on our own we will find neither peace nor joy in our life.
