Of course Jesus loves them, even when they have messed things up a bit. They could make their relationship with him great by following His commands and living out their life of faith with the Church.
In other words, practice real devotion.
Receive the Sacraments:
- go to Confession
- go to weekly, or even daily, Mass and receive Him in the Eucharist.
- Jesus probably wants to capitalize on the time to take things to the next level, so why not oblige him?
