EVERY DEATH CARRIES WITH IT THE SEED FOR ANOTHER LIFE
Life and death like day and night tell those who understand,
that every death carries with it the seed of another life,
in the same way as the rays of the setting sun promise another dawn.
Therefore, in the sunset of life,
all carry with them the seed of a joyful or condemned immortality,
according to whether the soul is alive or dead to Grace.
I can truly change the course of events
and make them pass from a dark to a radiant sunset;
and what is more, that gives Me great joy and I often do so.
How many souls have been gathered on their death bed!
It is impossible for you to imagine.
Let it suffice for you to think that it pleases Me so much to save souls
at the very moment of death,
that I Myself wished to die beside My good Dimas
after having saved him at his final moment of life.
But this should not be a cause for presumption,
since on Calvary itself, at My side another creature died in despair.
Therefore, may all your trust be in Me,
but all your fear be toward yourselves.
Thus in this way you will find Me Merciful;
thus you will be able to reach Me, and in no other way.
I have said remember it but I do not ask you not to fear it.
It is a step that will resemble the rest of mortal life,
since then you will gather what you have reaped.
Let the thought of death be joyful to you, not sad,
for what is death but the conquest of the good you have believed in?...
For those who believe in Me,
to die is to free themselves from the boredom of the world,
from the danger of offending Me, and from the attacks of Satan.
For those who love Me, to die is to present themselves before a Judge
full of compassion
to the extent that I have made Myself a Victim
of all those whom I will judge.
You could have no greater guarantee
concerning the future judgment that awaits you,
because I Myself have well prepared you,
since I want you to present yourselves before Me
covered with My Blood and with My merits...
I hope you understand that I will be just not only to you,
but also to Myself
and that I will know how to see well that My merits cover
and can cover all your misery.
And now if you wish to make Me very content,
and if you wish to win over your Judge in advance,
then give your consent to My embellishing you with the fire of Love
which burns up all the flaws you have together with your anxieties.
And then you will be able to think of death as a real liberation,
and as the starting point of the happiest of voyages...
Now, be calm.
You are going to listen to Bernardo and later on, to some others...
Do I not know how to regale you and spoil you with things
that are so pleasing and unpredictable?
