YOUR SATISFACTION CONSISTS
IN CONFORMING TO DIVINE WILL
Part 2 of 5 CS-80 12-Nov-97
Now, in order to be ready to carry out the Divine Will,
you must first make the offer to receive in peace and with resignation
all that the Father ordains and demands of you.
Take King David as an example;
he used to say: “Lord, my heart is willing…”
By saying those words he would only be asking that God teach him
how to comply with His Will.
This is how he merited being called,
“the man after My own Heart,” by God:
“I have found a man after My own Heart
who will fulfill My Will in everything.”
I hear a great number of people saying:
I fulfilled Your Will today Lord;
do this; do that; do this favor for us, etc.
I also hear a smaller group telling Me:
“Do what You will. Your Will be done…"
The former group, as well as the latter is steadfast,
fixed in the thoughts that they have, in the love that they have.
The former group believes, but they love little;
those in the latter group believe much and love much.
I have taught you Myself to ask for your daily bread,
and under the name of “bread”
I meant everything that is necessary for your lives.
Therefore, it will not be Me who says, “Do not ask for anything,”
because it is good that you ask,
even for material things for several reasons.
But there is a great difference between asking and being petulant.
Asking is being humble;
acting petulant, aside from being a demonstration of great self-love,
is to believe that I am hard and insensitive.
To keep repeating the same petition is to ultimately think of oneself,
forgetting that I think about you more than you do yourselves.
Ask for bread, not precisely for the kind of bread that you want,
but to acknowledge that I am the “baker”
and that you have need of Me,
be it when things are prosperous or when they are adverse.
It is better to remain calm than to live with anxiety;
it is best to believe in My love than to hope in My love.
He who loves Me knows that I do not fail,
that I do not delay in giving him everything.
He who loves Me little,
always feels as if the ground under his feet had been removed,
and so he suffers.

YOUR SATISFACTION CONSISTS
IN CONFORMING TO DIVINE WILL
Part 1 of 5 CS-80 12-Nov-97
My Father sent Me not only as Savior, but also as your teacher.
I have come into the world to teach you
with My Words and with My example
the way you must love God, the greatest good.
If all of you desire the treasure of divine love,
you must incessantly entreat the Holy Spirit
to make the Divine Will known to you,
and always ask for the light necessary
to recognize the Divine Will and carry it out.
I want to teach you today
that all your satisfaction must consist
in being content with the Divine Will,
and in which things and how you must conform to it.
It is true that your salvation consists in loving God
because the soul who does not love Him remains in death.
Hence, the perfection of love consists
in conforming one’s will to that of the Father’s.
Love’s main effect is to desire what the beloved one does
in a way that both persons may have one sole heart and one sole will.
While preaching in a home I replied that
he who does My Father’s Will is My brother, My sister and My Mother (look up Matthew 12:50).
What I meant was that
I consider only those who comply with the Will of God,
as My relatives and friends.
The Saints in Heaven love God perfectly.
But in what does the perfection of their love consist?
It consists in being totally conformed to the Divine Will.
This is why I taught you to ask for the grace to do My Will in this world,
as the blessed ones do in Heaven.
A perfect act of conformity to the Divine Will
is enough to make a person holy.
What did Paul do when he converted after seeing Me?
He offered God his own will to dispose of it at His pleasure.
Listen, [children], he who mortifies himself
through fasting and penance,
he who gives alms and does other good works,
gives God a part of himself and his possessions.
But he who gives Me his will, gives Me everything,
and for that very reason he can say:
“Lord, having given You my will, there is nothing else I can give you,
since I have given it all to You.”
This is that “all” that I ask of you when I request your heart,
that is to say, your will…
All of your good consists in complying with My Will,
but the difficulty lies in carrying it out.

DO NOT DEPRIVE YOURSELVES OF THE RICHNESS OF MY PARDON
My children, vivid lights and great horizons open up to this civilization
that carries in itself the germ of salvation.
No longer as in the past,
today the march is headed
to the conquest of the indestructible bastion
over which towers, radiant and beautiful,
the sign of My Redemption.
Mankind is afraid; so much I do to shake them up.
They fear; they become irritated by things said, heard or suffered.
And I at this moment, calm and happy,
smile at the masses that undulate under My gaze as Creator.
But I have said that the light will come
and that man shall be conquered with the bastion of the Faith
and through it, by the Cross.
As a result, My sign will come to be the possession of mankind.
Today’s misery, in fact, is the lack of faith.
It is the poverty of the good that I have gathered for you also,
men and women of today,
on the throne from which I dominated and on which I suffered.
Today you are deprived of the wealth that I have offered you
in promising you Mercy.
You are deprived, oh man, of the wealth of [My] forgiveness,
and you are blind as if sunk a very viscous swamp.
To you, man sitting in idleness, I announce a happy era.
To others who fear My warnings, I announce Justice on earth.
But I do not lie, either to you or to them,
and if at times it seems that My Mercy surpasses My Justice,
then you are already in the period of plenty.
But until My Mercy makes itself evident in your lives,
let man meditate upon the rigors of My Justice.
I intend to do great things among you, and I will,
but before that you will feel something more than, as you say,
a slap on the wrist.

YOU HAVE BECOME WHITE HANDKERCHIEFS THAT DRY THE TEARS OF MY MOTHER
Part 2 of 2 CS-78 9-Nov-97
What do I do when man has reached this point?
I encourage him to come out, as I encouraged him to remain still
until the due fulfillment of the cycle of human manifestations
which are bothersome to man’s existence
but provide it with the lightweightiness to fly to Me.
And upon encouraging man to come out into the open,
he breathes and he even makes himself humble,
because he remembers having been somewhat rebellious
back when he was suffering.
On finding himself in the new life reserved for him,
the soul thinks of past times
and finds that he has missed many appropriate occasions
that were favorable for doing things pleasing to Me.
[Now,] I am going to bring up some topics for you,
yet not so extensively that could alter the pre-established program…
I watch over your good,
and I keep rebuilding all that which consciously
or unconsciously begins to crumble within you,
so that you may place yourselves in My Will
and fashion a treasure out of all your past experiences.
These children of Mine are those who must substantiate everything
that I am saying for the good of all of you,
whom I chose from among millions of creatures.
I was saying that they must substantiate it
in order to welcome all those who feel fatigued,
and be compassionate towards them,
treating each one as charitably as I desire.
But they have need of a kind of assistance
that you will be giving them.
It is the help of your prayers,
through which you must not ask for anything else
than for the necessary strength to carry out My Will.
Thus, you will help in My designs for them,
and in this way you will also participate
in the good that I want to do through you.
Be patient, dear children, make use of charity, much charity,
and you will have many more graces from your beloved Jesus.

YOU HAVE BECOME WHITE HANDKERCHIEFS THAT DRY THE TEARS OF MY MOTHER
Part 1 of 2 CS-78 9-Nov-97
Little children of My Heart,
let the joy of this Most Holy Heart
be for you an immense ocean of Mercy.
Thank you, My children, for having made it up to here,
up to this moment, to this step
where you have now become the white handkerchiefs
that dry the tears of My Mother Most Blessed.
At this encounter,
you will undertake topics on the Great Crusade of Mercy.
I ask that each one of you own My Messages.
Listen to, read, meditate upon them;
examine in depth those things about the world that I desire
that you do with complete and absolute openness,
and with your mind, heart and senses put in each phrase.
Little children, upon completion of the cycle of interior manifestations
in which I show you some of the dark sides of one’s soul,
as well as some aspects of My divine help,
mankind can sprint to the conquest over acquired goods,
wherein lies its concupiscence.
At that point the living and visible obstacles,
or else those that are invisible but also living,
such as Hell’s warfare,
Satan’s aversion to the fulfillment of My Will, cease.
Then, man recognizes that some person or thing
were nothing but obstacles for an hour, for a single day,
in other words of a limited duration
and not for an indefinite time as it previously may have seemed to be.

I SUFFER MY PASSION AGAIN IN YOU
Part 2 of 2 CS-77 5-Nov-97
In regard to the Roman soldiers in the service of Pilate,
I will say that they were less bestial yet still wicked.
But among them was the one possessed by Satan,
the one who crowned Me forever, with My Crown of thorns,
a bloody Crown and diadem of inestimable value.
My power overcame everything and was victorious over everyone.
I am still and will be forever the victor over any kind of violence,
and I do not do battle with anyone but to obtain victory.
But I want to win in a divine way, with altogether supernatural arts.
So it was then, and so it is now
when I am fighting against so many enemies
in so many places of the earth.
I will be victorious.
Man will not be capable of inflicting a Passion
greater than that which I suffered.
And this is because I live My Passion of today in you,
My followers and incurable dreamers of quick triumphs.
I have suffered everything in an orderly fashion
in the time desired by the Father,
and I have risen after three days in the tomb...
And you would like to prevail and triumph immediately...
Could it be that My creature is in such a hurry
so as to perhaps abbreviate its sufferings?
I know it; I see everyone and even more so,
I am within you to guide you, to talk to you, to restrain you,
to move you forward.
I am within you and you are in Me.
So, let Me guide you; I want to give you more faith, more love.
Do you understand?
Do you understand that I suffer in you, that I suffer My Passion again?
Oh, happy are you, if you can be docile and trusting!
Happy because then, My living within you,
aside from becoming obvious, will bring to flower all the virtues.
It will give you strength and victory
and will make you in My likeness.
My Passion, therefore, is present in the world now;
it continues now in you.
Be glad because I have chosen you.
Rejoice because you will be Me.
You will take Me to the world and I will triumph with you,
in you and through you.

I SUFFER MY PASSION AGAIN IN YOU
Part 1 of 2 CS-77 5-Nov-97
Look well at what you do Katya [Catalina’s given name];
it is not possible that you should always forget the notebooks.
I ask you to be more careful;
look for a smaller notebook that will fit in your pocketbook
or use a larger purse.
Everyone wonders if there will be a war or not.
Man is always concerned about impending violence...
Do not I know what it is like to be a victim of violence!...
Always mocked; never offended enough.
As if I were a doll that is tossed and maltreated,
I was passed from the hands of Herod’s soldiers to those of Pilate’s.
They were men who had become accustomed
to all kinds of adventures
and they dared to take their cruelty to even saying to Me,
in the soldier’s jargon: “How come You have run out of strength?
Perhaps you have worn yourself out?”
One vented his fury on My flesh more than the others,
because he was possessed by Satan
and he was the one who drove the cruel thorns into My head.
They had an almost condemned Man in their hands,
and Herod’s tacit permission first and Pilate’s later,
to do with Me as they pleased.
Man becomes beast-like or angel-like in undue ways.
The duty of those rascals was to guard Me.
The rest of what they did was instigated by Satan
and by the fierce pleasure that it was for them
to reduce a Man to little less that a miserable rag.
Herod was very pleased at seeing Me
adorned as a mockery of a king.
The clothing that he made Me wear, incited him even to blasphemy,
and My silence frustrated him to spitefulness.
Nothing has the Creator to say to the creature
on seeing him remain stubbornly at fault;
nothing, because he who is obstinate, in certain cases,
is already condemned.
Such was in fact Herod.
He was immersed in unmentionable vices,
aside from being among the most vicious murderers.
His soldiers were worthy of him and imitated his deeds,
certainly not heroic at all.
In the hands of those henchmen,
My Humanity was flogged until it bled
without My being able to utter a word.

MAN, WHAT DO YOU DO WITHOUT MY SUPPORT?
Let us resume, My beloved, our encounter;
after a hard day for you, let us talk to man.
I have satisfied a wounded heart.
Of whom, do I purport to be speaking?
Of that creature who once used to sway
between her seducer’s offenses [to God and creature],
but who now is cautious and strives for another affirmation of Mine.
I have led My chosen one to the summit of her own abjection,
and I have limited her in a way that she will know
what intention of Mine must be realized in her.
What does that creature in whom I am so pleased, understand!
What does it draw from so many caring details of Mine!
Perhaps if I made use of small trials, which would clarify its situation,
it would know how to orientate itself.
And yet, the creature pleads with Me so much to be let out.
And now that it is so captivated by Me.
Now it [knows that it] has My entire Love not when it desired it
but now that it almost fears it.
Great commotion, the chaos in your mind, oh creature,
and what are you doing then without My support?
Look at what you do.
Man, I invite you to reflect upon how much you are worth without Me.
This is properly a reflection that will help you,
a reflection which is worth the same as an entire ordinary life.
A reflection that makes you turn your head to Me.
It produces the humility that you say you desire
and that sometimes you almost forget amid so many miseries.
How many illusions fall apart in this way!
All of you, oh Apostles of the New Evangelization,
be as those who take part in a card game.
While they wait for the good card, they endeavor to not waste
the ones they already have.
From the great multitude of My merits,
the good card will certainly come.
But you must continue with your game without becoming distracted,
and then you will avoid the horrendous falls of the soul,
and I will prepare for you the sublime ascents of the spirit.
You will no longer remain ignorant of the latter or the former;
they will no longer cause you to wonder
because you will know My work and those you call your works,
which when they stand alone should be called more than works,
the destruction of My work…
My beloved [Catalina], do you want to offer Me your sufferings?
The constant renewal of your offering pleases Me...

HURRAH FOR HUMILITY!
Part 2 of 2 CS-75 4-Nov-97
Saint Francis of Assisi
Humility is the conquest of the soul,
and it is a light from God,
and not only a light, but also a conquest.
He, who does not know what it is to truly humble himself,
persists in many errors and blindly holds in great esteem,
that which is actually vile and contemptible.
Consider that to humble oneself before the Cardinals of the Church
and the very Pontiff as I did,
is no big matter for the one who regards himself
as a sheep of the great fold.
But that act of humility remains before God throughout the centuries
and through eternity, so as to witness to the truth possessed,
believed and esteemed.
And the truth in these cases is to hold oneself
as a good-for-nothing who obeys God
and goes to the encounter of the great ones of the Church
with a simple attitude, as mine would say:
with a Franciscan attitude.
Therefore, self-knowledge produces humility,
while self esteem, which is pride, produces confusion
and ruins what little truth may already be found in the soul.
I have learned humility from Christ Himself,
from looking at Him humble and unassuming in the manger,
humble and in pain on the Cross,
humble and wise in His Words,
humble and omnipotent in the working of miracles,
humble and great in remaining here below,
being given out to us, the men of the earth, as the food of eternal life.
I did not have any books except for the Psalter
and some very old missals;
however, the Eternal God instructed me intensely,
and He gently moved me through all the paths of virtue.
He, my Love and yours,
is the spring from where the everlasting water descends.
Jesus, sweet Jesus is the reservoir that gathers it,
and I, the small brook that having come out of Him,
tries to pour out myself to mingle with other waters or otherwise,
to come to rest in other small pools that gather the water
from the main reservoir, Jesus.
I am Francis, the light of Assisi, the torch of Christ,
the star on the firmament of the sublime Mother Church.
Go with confidence, sister Catalina.

HURRAH FOR HUMILITY!
Part 1 of 2 CS-75 4-Nov-97
Saint Francis of Assisi
My sister, listen to what I come to tell you
by mandate of our Love, yours and mine.
If the water that wells up from the spring
is channeled towards an adequate reservoir little by little,
it will become full
and the previously visible land will be left totally covered with water.
If one lets a narrow stream run out from the already full reservoir,
you will see it run forward in search of a resting place,
which the water will find either by mingling itself with other waters
or by pooling in another reservoir.
This, so simple and common a thing,
is the image of the great queen
that I esteemed above all other virtues on earth: humility.
[Brother] Masseo was left very surprised
upon hearing the words of praise that I would say
whenever I wished to give the necessary teaching to the great family
that I had gathered.
But his surprise was later changed into holy joy,
when he saw for himself that the queen, of whom I speak to you,
deserves the most sincere love.
I passed through earth, like a luminous meteor
and I attracted some to my side.
But I attracted them with simplicity, without artifices,
almost without inviting them.
I encountered some resistance from them
and I also put forth resistance to them,
until God removed me from the headship of the My Order
which I founded on true humility
and not on the insubordination of Elias...
[note: Brother Elias became the Vicar General of the order,
and remained in that position after St Francis’ death.]
He, has in fact, left a magnificent Basilica full of human marvels
which, by the way, is falling apart.
I have left a little Church full of divine marvels,
and humility is the most beautiful among them.
The wealthy of that time, were not as amazed at my poverty
as they were at the spirit of humility
that God had given me.
My detachment from things was so great and true,
and that was apparent at first sight.
But much greater was the truth that by divine virtue,
shone forth in my spirit
and with the truth, its natural child, humility.
Did I not know who the son of Pietro Bernardone was?
How did the son of the French lady (my mother)
resemble the holy Son of Mary?
I found myself too different, when Grace inundated me,
and so I humbled myself.
And how could I have seen myself worthy of Christ,
even as I was following His adorable doctrine in His footprints,
if I could hardly withdraw from the offerings of the world,
which was already following me?
So, another motive was given to me,
another light confronting my new life,
yet I still had too little likeness with my beloved Good.
