SUFFERING PREPARES YOU FOR TOMORROW’S ETERNAL JOY
Cheerful laughter, perpetual happiness and joyful enchantment
I have in store for those souls who were once sinners
and then converted.
Innocence will receive its special joy
and the converted sinner a different joy, also special.
When the time of sadness ends on earth,
the time of eternal joy will open in Heaven.
Smile then, oh disillusioned friends of Mine;
smile now, for if from now on you are given suffering,
it is because I will obtain from that very suffering
the cause for you to rejoice.
Disillusioned human beings,
do not regard sorrow as something hateful,
because for My love, sorrow is the fuel for a bigger fire.
Souls are burned by sorrow but if they suffer for My sake,
a great fire of Love will be made in them.
There are no creatures in Heaven
that do not bless the sufferings they endured,
because they see them as My Will
and they acknowledge their value
which is conferred on them by My own Will...
But I am talking to you about suffering
as sustenance necessary for you,
and from them you will obtain support and satisfaction
in the happy world that awaits you.
It is annoying for you to hear the words: suffer, suffer.
For that reason, I am changing the word
and I am making it more acceptable.
And that is why I am talking to you about offerings
or instead, about trials and tribulations,
and also about acceptance, but all that is still a kind of suffering.
For you to follow Me without hesitation,
I have brought about many examples of suffering in My church,
from the harshest to the most joyful.
Take what is most pleasing to you,
and give Me the steadfast consent of your will
since I am not strictly seeking your suffering in itself and by itself,
but your will, that is, your love.
Understand this and suffering will be less irritating to you.
I tell you next:
that the greater or lesser degree of your understanding in this respect,
will be followed by the greater or lesser acceptance of the trials
that I send you.
Do you avoid considering the fact that I seek your will?
Well then, it is true that you will be weak in suffering.
On the other hand, do you know that your God
cannot seek from His creatures anything but what is truly His?
That is, will and judgment.
Well then, be sure of the fact
that I am the One who predisposes you
to the acceptance of your sufferings,
the only means of making the gift of your will to Me...
No, there is no other means, and if there were,
I would not hesitate for a minute to use it,
knowing how much trials and tribulations,
acceptance and pain cost you.
Therefore, oh My beloved, leave yourselves in My hands
and you will see that I will accommodate your suffering of today
and I will prepare for you the joy of tomorrow, eternal joy.
Let yourselves be modeled in My hands
and you will become like the One who speaks to you
and who one day submitted to all His sufferings
for your benefit and example.
There is nothing more secure than knowing how to suffer.
Oh! How many fewer sighs you will heave
when you learn how to suffer!
Onward, without hesitating!
All of you, close to Me!

FEW ARE THE HEARTS THAT ARE SINCERE WITH ME
Write, My child; write for mankind, My chosen creature...
My soul is filled with desire and My heart is overflowing with Love.
My flames devour Me
and I find only few hearts that are sincere with Me.
Weary of roaming the world, I have paused at the door
of a group of My very staunchest enemies.
I have knocked even there and yet mankind has rebuffed Me.
Where shall I go?
Who will be willing to welcome this thirsty lover in search of love?
Who will be willing to give Me refuge?
Oh, you ungrateful creature!
How you resist when you should be grateful to Me!
How long do you make Me wait outside your soul
without your seeing,
without your feeling these flames that perpetually envelope Me?
But what have I done to you that you should leave Me now,
so sad and forsaken?
What slight on My part has made you insensitive, oh creature of Mine,
whom I loved and do love as intensely as I love Myself?
Oh you cruel creature of Mine,
I beg you to tell Me where I have failed you
and where I have offended you...
But do not be silent before Me who implores your love.
How many times you have rejected Me!
How quick you have been to distance yourself from Me,
while I came to you to offer you the fruit of My pains!
Have you not seen that I held in My hand the crown of thorns
that is My diadem because I wanted to give it to you?
Have you not realized, oh creature of Mine,
that I came to clothe you in My garments
that I left behind there on Calvary?
Reflect! I have returned to call your heart
and I have returned frustrated by so many other negative responses.
Reflect! I ask you again for love.
If you distance yourself from Me this time too,
you will find yourself emptier than before.
No! Do not cast Me aside.
Let Me come into your heart, to your repulsing heart
that I want to transform with Mine.
Reflect! I have returned to ask you for understanding
and I will forget everything if you welcome Me now.
Will you accept Me now?
Will you accept this beggar of love,
this very rich but tremendously misunderstood lover?
Come, oh soul, come with Me and I will comfort you;
I will give you rest; I will embellish you;
I will give you strength; I will raise you;
I will seat you here near Me,
and I will command My Angels to sing your praises.
Come, oh soul of My Soul!
Come here to My triumphal carriage
that is running swiftly towards Love!

MY WORDS ARE TIRING TO THOSE WHO ARE SELFISH
My children, I behave like a friend
who truly seeks to help the person whom he treasures.
Among all friends there are none who can say
that their friendship is a passionate and constant seeking
of the well-being of their friend.
Yet I, only I, would be able to affirm
My unselfishness repeatedly with words.
I could, but I do not do so.
The most I do is to limit Myself to making you reflect,
and based on this, I count on your comprehension.
But I know very well that My words are tiring to those who are selfish
and that they annoy those who are vain.
For that reason, I do not insist, since it is My intention to help you,
not inconvenience you or cause you trouble.
So here I am, then, to proclaim to you that if I often repeat Myself,
I do so because of you,
because you want gardens with flowers in them,
and not paths that are straight, simple and safe.
What do you want Me to do?
Should I give up loving you, because you do not understand Me,
because you are not ready to follow Me?
That is what I should do given the attitude of many of you,
but I cannot do so because I am your only true friend.
I am the One who made a commitment for you before the Father.
Do not be upset but rather, try to put My teachings into practice.

TO LOVE IS NOT TO ENCLOSE ONESELF IN THE CIRCLE OF ONE’S OWN FEELINGS
My beloved, feelings of charity put to the test
while one is enthusiastic
and feelings possessed during a time of indifference
appear very different.
Great value can be attributed to the former
while the latter are ignored, as if charity were only a bastion of zeal.
Nevertheless, the act of love or charity conquers not
insofar as it is joy put to the test by the person who performs it
but because it is a stirring of kindness towards Me
and towards your brothers and sisters.
Moreover, it is good to state clearly that the less joy experienced,
the less satisfaction derived from the carrying out
of an act of supernatural or even natural love,
the more precious is that very act.
These matters are confusing to minds that are accustomed
to the pleasure I bestow on you for your acts of love.
It is very necessary to understand that it is My desire to accustom you
to loving Me and loving everyone,
without you doing so for the pleasure of loving.
In that custom you will find stability of spirit
while in the long run,
enthusiasm will change into weakness in you yourselves.
And that is the profound reason that prevents Me
from keeping and, moreover, sustaining you in your enthusiasm.
Who observes those reasons of Mine?
Perhaps the miserable human being who avidly seeks his satisfaction,
or maybe the faithful person who does not notice
that to love means to go out of oneself
and not stay enclosed within the circle of one’s own feelings?
I keep watch over you and I pursue your well being.
I do not deny you the satisfaction that you would like now,
and I will give you even greater and more intense satisfaction
once you love without thinking of yourselves.
I know very well that in listening to these words,
many of you seek your satisfaction even there.
But those who do so, should reflect on the fact
that if they had listened to them out of love for Me,
they would now have their joy
and it would be the joy of having given Me
the pleasure of their listening unselfishly to Me.
How difficult that is!
But unselfish love is attainable,
provided that the soul accepts the things that I work in it,
without getting confused,
without forgetting that I do not forget it,
and always receiving from My loving hands warmth and cold,
enthusiasm and indifference.
Just a word to teachers of the spirit:
the way can be taught only if you know it.
And when you know it, you live it
because on the contrary, how will you teach what you do not know?
So you will see if you have collaborated with Me
and to what extent you have done so,
since you are still just teachers and have a great deal to learn.
Repeat My Word.
It saves you and saves those that I have entrusted to your care.
But remember that it is My Word that I have spoken,
and certainly not your words or ideas
that do not conform with My intentions.

HAPPY IS THE SOUL WHO TRIES TO COMPLETE MY PASSION
[Translation Note: for consistency with the original Spanish text, the above title, which is the same as for CM-145, has been repeated.]
(We had just been advised about the death of a very dear friend)
My little daughter, tell My son NN that B did not suffer at all
and that he hardly had time to look at Me
because I gathered him up in My arms.
And now, go and comfort your friend...

MANY OF YOUR CROSSES ARE OF YOUR OWN MAKING
Part 2 of 2 CM-144 2-June-97
Onward, little children! Embrace your crosses.
I will reveal them to you little by little so as not to frighten you.
Then follow Me because it will be pleasing for you to go where I go,
and where I am, you will be relieved of the inner burdens
without lifting the veil of mystery that covers them [the crosses]
because I know human nature very well.
Let each one think about himself and listen to Me
since interiorly I am inclined toward considerations
that carry with them the embrace of inner crosses.
Do not be deceived.
I will not leave you with the mistaken notion of believing
that by following Me, it is enough to go into ecstasies over Me.
Oh, no! It is not enough!
That is also how Peter spoke on Mt. Tabor
but he had to realize the truth,
just as you also have to realize it
by reexamining your interior movements,
the reactions of the spirit to My Will that cause contradiction.
Only then, when you realize the truth,
will you be able to offer Me your misery, and not before.
Do you understand?
Well, yes; this is important for the life of the spirit,
the life that I nourish continually
and which now, as you also see, I have wished to reaffirm in you
by asking you to listen to Me and to believe
that this Message is a real proof
and illustration of all that is necessary for your spiritual progress.

MANY OF YOUR CROSSES ARE OF YOUR OWN MAKING
Part 1 of 2 CM-144 2-June-97
Beloved daughter, My peace be with you.
Be calm and may nothing disturb you.
You are doing what you must, and as for the rest, take it for what it is:
the devil fluttering about, determined to bother you
by availing himself of whatever he can...
Let us continue with yesterday’s subject that I want to elaborate upon.
If difficulties come about externally
and make their way to the core of human sensibility,
you soon realize how the disturbing and painful action that befalls you
can be isolated and conquered.
On the other hand, with the crosses produced internally,
it is different because those crosses are an integral part of oneself
and it is very difficult to see the causes
that are born and dwell within oneself.
How many crosses are of your own making!
How many thorns are born on your branches
which you water with the passionate love that you have of yourselves!
Without My Light, it is impossible to move away
from those irritating causes
in order to make them the object of meditation.
Without My Light, you can see nothing,
but even blind as you are, it is quite logical to believe
that I wish you to be supportive of each other.
So, the perfection that is so attractive to you,
cannot be reached without embracing those internal crosses.
It is understood that by being supportive of each other
and with My help, you will advance much more towards perfection.
In fact, there is no love more smug than self love,
and to be at variance with the beloved
already costs you a great deal.
Thus, your principal cross is you yourselves,
even though Satan and the world attack you from outside.
All My work of Redemption is inclined
toward those objectives on which your happiness depends.
I tend to make you accept the knowledge of yourselves
better and better where, by following My Grace,
it is possible to glimpse the imperfection of the ego
and the price of accepting its consequences.
It is not very pleasant to witness one’s own misery,
but it is very pleasant to humbly offer it to Me
so that I can mold it and build on it,
that is to say, upon knowledge on your part,
to build a magnificent interior work performed solely by divine Love.

NO CROSS CARRIED WITH LOVE WILL BE DESERVING OF SCORN
If I have said that those who do not embrace their crosses
are unworthy to follow Me,
by that I meant the endless or nearly endless series of all the things
that your souls pass through,
be they due to external events or internal matters.
Moreover, what is internal is greater
because if suffering comes externally,
those sufferings can be combated
and in every case they can be born by helping yourselves
with human tools and means of support
or by separating yourselves from such attacks
and from all the sufferings that persons, situations and matters
might cause you.
On the other hand, when it comes to internal matters,
things are drastically different.
Let us analyze this...
The soul is suited to receiving comfort more than affliction
and glory more than sacrifice.
It nourishes itself by everything that it believes is appropriate for it
and is food for it.
Suddenly, it is beset by stumbling and carelessness,
and the mortal enemy advances
and mercilessly attacks with absolute shrewdness and trickery.
It begins to be tortured with the remembrance of faults
committed in the past
and it continues with fearfulness and insecurity about the future.
It is made to glimpse another kind of comfort
and it is seduced by what is easy, by what might seem safe,
and finally it is placed on the back alley of depression and fear.
Penned in there, it is like a little tiny bird
which is the prey of the falcon.
It moves, it kicks, it shakes its wings, it huddles in a corner,
unable to make any decision to fly away
or to confront its persecutor.
In this state, if it is not strong, if it has not nourished itself with Me,
with My Word, My love, the Bread of the Strong,
then it will very likely end up surrendering itself to the persecutor
and may end up fatally trapped in its claws.
But if on the other hand it is clothed in Me,
it will not fear to fall into the hands of the oppressor
because it knows that I will rescue it
since it trusts in that boundless Mercy and in its God.
I tell you truly that every martyr was a prey before to internal anguish
and suffered pain, moaning and affliction.
All the Saints carried their crosses bravely and lovingly.
None of them evaded their crosses, just as I did not evade Mine,
capable as I was at that moment of putting an end
to the evil of the enemy of souls.
If I carried My Cross joyfully to please My Father,
why do human beings want to be more than their Master?
No power is given to any human being
to try to surpass the One who leads them...
I have said that those who wish to be My disciples
should take up their crosses every day and follow Me.
Oh, children! No cross that is carried with love
will be deserving of scorn
and none will go unrewarded,
since by imitating your Lord, you identify with the God-Man.
That is how My Father healed illness and guilt:
by crucifying Me at the hands of My brothers and sisters
and I said: “Father, forgive them.
Forgive them for they know not what they do.”
And did they truly not know?
Or was it that at that hour Heaven emptied itself of Mercy for you
and Hell emptied itself of those condemned against Me...
Meditate on that, children.
Reflect on why it is that time and time again
I am crucified in each one of you.

MY PRESENCE IN THE CONSECRATED HOST IS THE GREATEST ACT OF MERCY
My child, I want you to tell Fr. RA.
that you will soon finish the second volume of photocopies...
It will be called “The Great Crusade of Mercy”
and then there will be a third one
[i.e., The Great Crusade of Salvation],
if human beings with their prayers and conversion
provide the occasion of a third and final volume.
Speak now, and say that My being in the Consecrated Host
is the greatest act of Mercy of My Sacred Heart.
Is it not Mercy, sending My Mother to you
to awaken you from your lethargy and to turn you back to Me?
Is it not Mercy, revealing My Mysteries to you
and minutely examining the Sacred Scriptures with you
in these volumes of the Great Crusade?
Is it not Mercy, that even today given the evil of mankind,
I reveal My love to you?
Every act of Mine is a cry of Mercy.
Make good use of it, oh deaf and blind mankind who hurt Me so much!
This new volume will be called “The Great Crusade of Mercy.”

I AM FOOD FOR YOUR SOULS; I AM TRUTH FOR YOUR MINDS
Part 3 of 3 CM-141 29-May-97
If I allowed Myself to be openly seen,
I tell you there would not be enough ciboriums or Hosts
for the number of people who would come to Me.
Come then with Faith to feed yourselves from Me
because there is no greater honor than to receive Communion,
that is, to unite yourselves with My Humanity and Divinity.
You do not see yourselves when you are with Me,
but the One who sees you from Heaven
admires the miracle that I work in you.
He unites Himself to Me in continual praises which I give to you,
to you who are vested in Me.
Oh, yes! It is your honor and it should be your continual desire
to feed yourselves from Me,
because I am food for your souls,
Truth for your minds,
and the fire that softens all hearts and sets all souls on fire.
Come, beloved, without fear; come to Me.
A special message for the favorite children:
Children, My children, how long have I had to wait
to see the fulfillment of this yearning in My Heart.
How many Saints have been given this moment of contemplation.
You have not, only gone to evangelize a group of young people...
you have opened the door of many dreams
that were asleep on the threshold,
awaiting the moment when My Mercy and My Love
would pass through you, My latest call of love... to humanity.
When human beings are dying, that is, when they think of Me,
those human beings are at the point of death and on that day,
when they begin to reach the first death rattles at the fatal hour,
I cast into the world the hand of Mercy to which they must cling.
There are two creatures that My Mother has been forming:
one peaceful, the other militant;
one forgiving, the other recollecting;
one tranquil, the other stormy...
Both are the voice of Truth and love that is overflowing:
one in love with My Mother,
the other passionately and madly in love with Me;
one weak as unborn creatures, the other strong as wild animals...
My beloved! My dearly beloved!
There is mankind for you.
Let Us see how much you can do for it.
What can you count on?
On your decisiveness because of having Me;
on everything you need and you have much more;
on My Mother because having Her is a sure guarantee of victory...
I am with you!
