WAS NOT GETHSEMANE GREATER THAN CALVARY?
Part 3 of 4 CS-52 29-Aug-97
In fact, I saw that My Father
while saying to Me: “Son, You are My Victim,”
was showing Me how illogical the sin of man was.
How contemptible pride is,
as is any other sin before the infinite majesty of My Father.
So, My soul would feel ardent impulses towards the Father,
who would accept them and repeat:
“Son, You are My Victim;
Son, You are accountable for the sins that you have not committed.
You must bear the punishment as if you had really offended Me.”
And I would be filled with sorrow
and be made to experience the horror that exists
between an impulse of love and sin,
a terrible battle between love and disaffection,
an immense struggle within a Man
who at that moment did not want to be God,
total destruction, sweating of Blood.
By then the sensitivity to pain had overcome the loving impulses.
I was all pain;
I felt I was sin personified.
Do you [Catalina] understand?
That is how I was feeling.
Was it not natural that I would ask for the removal of so much misery?
It was My human nature,
which was no longer receiving anything now from My Father,
anything that was good,
because I had received all of mankind’s evil.
Nevertheless, I maintained My sweetness even in that state;
My human nature itself, although totally submitted,
was looking for relief, exhausted as it was.
Then I pronounced the great words,
the words that were life in Me
and that witnessed to all
that My Will was always united to the Father’s:
“Not My Will be done (that of My human nature’s) but Yours.”
And the Father smiled,
but I remained extremely sad due to My wounded sensibility
and My terribly aggravated love.
I am alone, very alone, I thought.
All the sins are held against Me;
moreover, I feel them as Mine.
My Father draws away from Me
and puts Me under the sword of His Justice.
Maybe the apostles?... no; they are not with Me either...
I went to wake them up and to give them other instructions,
and then returned to the same solitude as before.
As a boat without a rudder,
broken down by the fury of the waves,
I returned to pray and to pray again,
to cry and to sweat blood
while Satan continued to laugh and mock Me.
Where were the Glory of Tabor and the disconcerting power over hell?
Had I not defeated nature, working thousands of wonders?
And had I not forgiven thousands of sins?
Why had I now become sin Myself?
And had I not given men and women the Eternal Word?
Why now am I laden with all the lies?
Had I not hidden Myself
when they wanted to apprehend Me and put Me to death?
Why is it that now everyone is before Me,
to accuse Me, without My being able to lift My head?
It does not matter; it does not matter.
I love My Father; He understands Me...
And so from one thought to another,
the darkness in Me became more dense.
I would descend into the abyss, into death,
without being able to die.

WAS NOT GETHSEMANE GREATER THAN CALVARY?
Part 2 of 4 CS-52 29-Aug-97
Peter is a case, an example, who was materially present
on the night of the betrayal, but all of you know
that it was not Peter alone who was present there,
but rather all of you, with all of your miseries.
That is why I walked into the Garden
oppressed by immense sorrows
and I abandoned Myself to sadness.
But someone was waiting for Me there, among the olive trees,
someone who wanted to put Me to the test with taunts.
It was the tempter who, refusing to accept My divinity,
thought he could make Me fall into despondency.
He insulted Me using the worst names;
he would called Me, deluded, fanatic and he kept stating
that it was him who indeed would be able to raise humanity up.
“Why do you torment yourself?” he would say.
“You cannot do anything for anyone;
you are only a miserable deluded man who feels insane.
Do you see how honored I am?
Everyone asks favors of me.
Do as I do; use your power to gain faithful and submissive followers.”
Thus, continued the iniquitous Satan, jabbing at Me,
telling Me that God would not accept
any of what I was expecting that He would,
because the power over man, said Satan, was in his own hands.
“If you want to be held as a saint”, insisted the miserable creature,
“declare unto the world that lust and pride
are the only satisfactions of man.
Speaking of humility and chastity, you have made yourself so odious
that even the holy priests of the Temple want to arrest you.
Go,” he would say to Me, “leave this damned Garden,
seek out Judas
and tell him that you want to start a new religion with him.
I will help you because I see that you are miserable and dejected,
because you are trembling.
Observe how bold I am,
because I know that I am the king of the world!”
But if Satan was waiting for Me in order to tempt Me,
so was My Father also waiting for Me,
and for a different reason.
He, by allowing Satan to vent all his hatred,
was preparing for Me the altar on which I, His Victim,
was to be immolated.
It was true, I had to assume the sins of all the others,
and Satan did not know why it was precisely I
who would have had to do it.
He knew the prophecies well,
but he could not believe that I was the One sent by the Father.
On the other hand,
He who had sent Me was waiting for that night
to give mankind the measure of His love
through the total sacrifice of Myself, His Son and His first Born.
In this way the Father showed Me everything,
and threw it over Me,
and so I had to put some distance between Myself
and the three disciples
and remain alone with this tremendous burden.
It was so tremendous that My whole being faltered,
even as I attempted to support Myself with My hands
so as not to fall to the ground.
It was the suffering that was growing more intense,
and condensing in My soul.
It was the suffering of seeing so much Kindness being offended,
and so much misery.

WAS NOT GETHSEMANE GREATER THAN CALVARY?
Part 1 of 4 CS-52 29-Aug-97
Little flower of My Passion, the night has frightened you, has it not?
And you have awakened to sorrow,
to being offended, to humiliations...
I asked you if you wanted to help Me.
You must know that you help Me,
not only by carrying My wounds in your body...
but also ---and how much!--- you help Me and comfort Me,
when your self love gnaws at you from within,
and yet, you vest yourself in humiliation in order to please Me.
They cause you sadness, those who once were friends
and today besiege you like wild beasts
studying, observing how to hurt you...
Offer it up to My Heart, a living blaze of love
where you will always find consolation.
I want to console you because that small heart that I love so much
is not alone.
Look; I will take it between My hands, to warm it up,
while I talk to you of another terrible night...
Dry those tears; let them not fall onto those who hurt you.
There is not a single dammed one
who has hurt My prophets in his lifetime
who finds relief today.
I am Mercy, yes, but I am also Justice...
Do not be scared; the word “dammed” is for the condemned,
those who are not in Heaven.
Listen... that night of tragedy was a dark night for My soul
that entered hesitantly amid the olive trees of Gethsemane.
I had said to the apostles that on that night
everyone would stumble on Me because the prophecy,
“I will strike the shepherd and the sheep will scatter”
had to be fulfilled.
I knew they would abandon Me,
but I was also certain that they would return to Me.
What I said was intended to make them see
that I was going to My death
with the knowledge of their abandonment.
It was not a lament; it was an advanced warning.
Everything was to serve as a means to increase My sadness.
Peter, sure of himself and without the least knowledge of his fragility,
caused Me the sadness of declaring himself faithful
even when the others had abandoned Me:
“Even when everyone stumbles, I will certainly not.”
My child, I know all My creatures,
and it was nothing new to hear Peter say that phrase,
a spontaneous phrase yes, but full of presumption.
His open declaration was a cause of great sorrow for My Humanity.
Peter, you, and you alone will be faithful to Me?
The cock will have not crowed twice,
by the time when you will have already denied Me thrice.
Peter, what are you saying?
Do you want Me to believe in your faithfulness?
Do you, perhaps, want to tell Me that you love Me
more than all the others?
I had not asked you for this declaration;
I will ask you afterwards, once I am risen;
then you will understand what now you cannot comprehend.
Yes, oh My Peter, it is true that you love Me,
but you do not yet know what it is to love without fail.
You do not know what you are worth without My help.
Peter, you will know it later, when I look at you in the Praetorium.
That is how I entered into Gethsemane,
with only three of My Apostles.

IN THE INTERIOR SILENCE YOU WILL HEAR MY HARMONIES
Little girl of My love, mankind is that way;
man will know how to draw benefit from anything I send him,
only if he, without concern, takes everything from My hands,
be it pleasant or not.
Every time that man grieves when I make My design useful for him,
it is evident that he does not perceive My Will with regard to himself.
He is saved only by the willingness to do everything
and to neglect nothing of all that I intend to work through him.
He must not suppose that he is being used as an instrument of Mine
and if he experiences reluctance due to the desire to remain hidden,
then let him rejoice because he is united to Me...
In order to avoid being separated from Me,
he must see to it
that either one situation or the other be good and acceptable.
Only after having acted in this way, will he see what I had dreamed up,
and he will not be puzzled upon verifying
that his acceptance has born the fruits that I desired.
He will see that it was good that what he had feared
or received with a frown, had come to pass,
and then he will quiet down.
When you [Catalina] experience certain interior rebelliousness,
you should not heed those feelings but overcome them
and do what I want of you.
Since you must not fear disdains, neither must you fear the honors.
The creatures move and unknowingly bring what I want to you.
Set your eye on My intention;
be attentive to what I do within and outside of you,
and if you cannot immediately capture the reason for My works,
it does not matter.
I hide it almost always
because I want to give your intelligence a greater light,
a light that is superior to that which lets you know, on the spot,
the reasons why I want certain things done.
You already know what that light is
and how particularly pleasing for Me is the humbling of your judgment.
Let Me have that contentment.
I ask for your interior silence,
and in the silence you will hear My divine harmonies.
Listen to the word of your Master
and let others know what I communicate to you for your good
and their good.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE UNITED TO ME?
Part 2 of 2 CS-50 26-Aug-97
Why is it that some people have reached the objective
without the means, while others, a great many of them
with so many means that they use, remain always aground?
For one reason alone
and it is that they do not want to give of themselves
but for a very smallest part, and thus, they frustrate My entire design
with respect to them.
One is not born a saint, but becomes one,
with steady efforts, efforts of the will, efforts of submission.
The things that are worthy of Me are not done
without giving Me the best of yourselves,
that is to say, the control of yourselves.
And so starting from an act worthy of My kindness,
I have arrived at the act of your will,
which by inserting itself into My act that moves you,
brings about the greatest of goods, My pleasure.
Do you see how much the creature united to Me can do?
It can give a joy, a pleasure to its God.
And does this seem something small to you?
Even knowing that you do not add anything
except in an accidental way,
you should nonetheless understand
that this is what it means to do acts worthy of My kindness.
This is to give God a Divine pleasure,
for that very reason, perfectly worthy of Me.
Therefore, let your work be a stimulus for you, not a habit;
let it be love, not gain.
Let your work be for you to give happiness about yourselves,
as if you had a real need to do it.
Sadly I do not explain these things for everybody
but it is good to also put your sight on the duties
relative to your schooling,
so that the elementary school student
and to a greater extent, the one in middle school,
may better understand the need to study more effectively each time
all that concerns him.
My children, be attentive as are so many students,
to the signals of their Teacher.
Learn from Him the divine science that He teaches you
with unparalleled love.
Learn today, because tomorrow you must understand it better.
And then you will remember this other lesson of Mine
that I have given for one whom you do not know,
but who is also a student in My divine school.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE UNITED TO ME? Part 1 of 2
Before saying anything, little one, meditate...
Take heart; I will teach you.
Remember that man is capable of understanding when God wills it.
That is why all of you have your limits which are fixed by Me,
and all should acknowledge
that the limits that I fix for you are for your good.
Thus, an act that is worthy of My kindness,
is a synthesis of light and love,
which is set by the Eternal Good and of which it participates...
Know which are the acts worthy of My kindness
and which, on the other hand, cannot reach My heights.
I said previously, “a synthesis of light and of love...”
In analyzing a good human act, we find light and love.
But in order that the act itself may be worthy of My kindness,
it must necessarily be fixed by the Eternal Good;
[that is] the Eternal Good must participate in that act,
since it is precisely My participation that makes a good human act
worthy of being in My presence.
Therefore, I do not take delight in subtle reasoning
in order to give a demonstration of truth.
Too many follow this method, which has no usefulness
but for those who already understand in the manner of the learned.
So I am telling you in order that you may draw benefit from it,
that if all of you want to do good things that please Me,
that may be acceptable to Me,
you must remain constantly united to Me
under pain of negating anything that you do.
United to Me you will do things that are worthy of Me,
because it is I who will inform you of your actions.
United to Me you will have light and sufficient love to set Me,
eternal and infinite Good, on you.
It is also evident that united to Me,
you will participate of all the provisions of which I desire that you do,
so that your acts may be worthy of My kindness.
What does it mean to be united to Me?...
The sacraments, prayers and virtuous acts are the necessary means,
but you must add yet another.
What else? Perhaps My dispensing of Grace to you
through the sacraments and prayers?
Yes, it is perfect... but to My work you must add your will.
It is a small thing compared to My work, yet necessary
because I desire it.
I want to tell you, that the means that I give you through the Church
are meant precisely to solicit, invite, and help you grow more tightly
close to Me, in a spirit of willingness.
That is why they are given, so you can unite yourselves to Me.
As I said previously, the acts worthy of My kindness depend on all this.

HOW MUCH CONSOLATION DO I FIND IN EACH ACT OF HUMILITY
My sweet little daughter, thank you for offering Me your act of humility.
I know how difficult it has been for you to do
without all the comfort to which you were accustomed.
How much consolation there is in each humble act of a soul so small.
You want My consolation, do you not?
Well then, I am going to give you a reward;
wait for Me later, alone...
(While I was alone praying in front of the Crucifix, our Lord told me to open my mouth and I received Communion. Being in prayer, I saw the room and the desks that were allocated today. I am so happy, thank You Lord!)

THE EVIL ONE SEIZES THE LUKEWARM SOULS
Be at peace; be not afraid, My child,
because your life is and should always be a sweet romance
between your God and your soul.
Expect everything from Me and trust solely in Me.
I am in those who truly love you on earth...
How much more you will have to suffer because of man’s disloyalty!
Those who remain by your side, supporting My work will be so few
that you would count them on one hand
but upright as were My Mother and John.
If they gave more consideration to those who represent Me,
the renewal of the world could not be abated.
But all are attacked.
It is the evil one who sneaks through a crack into lukewarm souls.
Do not forget how much I love you.
What else could matter to you?
Do what you must do; love Me,
and I will do in you what I must do, absolutely everything.
(Jesus let me see and hear a meeting that had taken place four hours before; how sad!)

CONSECRATED SOULS, ALLOW ME TO WORK FREELY IN YOU
I ask the consecrated souls through you [Catalina],
that they surrender to Me,
that they allow themselves to be filled with Me,
to work freely in them so that I may radiate through them
according to the desires of My Heart.
I call them all, but few are those souls who refuse Me nothing.
My Father should see only Me upon contemplating them.
How far it is from being so!
If the consecrated souls would allow Me to work freely in them
without refusing Me anything,
all the other souls would be saved,
because My Father, seeing Me in them
and hearing no one else but Me, could deny them nothing...
Through them I would ask and plead with the Father
to save and sanctify all other souls according to His Divine Will,
and He would not be able to refuse Me.
If I do not deny anything to My Holy Mother’s supplications,
with more reason My Father cannot refuse anything to Mine.
I see many souls fall into Hell,
certainly because that is what they want,
but also because of the abuse of My graces by consecrated souls.
Pray and plead with My Father through the Sacred Hearts
that He may save all the consecrated souls...
My Heart and My Mother’s do love every soul infinitely.
To plead, little daughter, means to pray without tiring,
with insistence and to pray with the certainty of being heard...
Make of each Friday a day of supplication...

I MYSELF WILL DISPENSE RIVERS OF ETERNAL WATER THAT WILL ALLEVIATE THE THIRST IN YOUR SOULS Part 3 of 3
And now that I told you what is the effect
produced by My thirst
and about the way by which I desire to allay Myself
from this inevitable reality,
I open My heart to those of you
who fearfully [devoutly] want to hear from My word,
always new, the truth, barely perceived many times
and never fully understood.
I have taken you to pondering about the visible things,
but solely to transport you to the invisible ones,
with which you desire to be satiated.
I have cried out to the world that I thirst;
you have understood Me and have captured My desire.
Well then, now My thirst is within you
but tied to a thousand things
from which you do not yet know how to detach yourselves.
It behooves Me to make you understand what you must do
in order that this thirst, that is yours because it is Mine,
may be truly efficacious throughout the human life that is left to you.
Be attentive, I manifest Myself in a thousand ways:
through readings; through increasingly greater effusions;
through soft impulses but also through material things.
And in anything and through everything,
I will leave in you an increasingly greater participation in My thirst.
Be ready! Ask Me to make you inclined to doing My work!
I will pass by and you must recognize Me.
If you welcome Me, we will do together the works
that will channel the water that alleviates Me and you.
Be prepared, I am saying it again!
And remember that if I say that I thirst,
I Myself will dispense rivers of eternal water
that will alleviate the thirst in your souls.
I thirst for souls; give Me souls, and first of all your own soul.
But give it to Me not with fruitless desires and vain purposes;
no, not that way.
Give your own selves to Me and the best thing that you have,
your free will; in one word,
give Me the control over yourselves.
I have now said to you that I desire the dominion of your inner selves.
Therefore, down goes your judgment, and Mine goes on high.
If you love Me, do things this way.
If you want to give Me relief, do as I have asked of you.
