THE BLOOD OF MARTYRS WAS A FERTILE SEED Part 1 of 2

Posted by Doming on August 9, 2017 at 11:00 AM

THE BLOOD OF MARTYRS WAS A FERTILE SEED

Part 1 of 2 CM-126 20-May-97

A soft young voice floods over me

1

The peace of Jesus be with you, daughter and sister.

Son of the most beloved Mother, I, Bernard, once Abbot of Clairvaux,

am here to teach you [Catalina] things that were confided to Me

by the Highest Wisdom.

Listen.

2

The first Christians, when they suffered martyrdom

at the hands of several Roman Emperors,

rose to the height of the first Martyr,

a height corresponding to but not equal to His.

Do you not understand? It does not matter.

Keep in mind that what is being dictated is not only for you;

your Spiritual Director, as always, will explain to you

what you do not understand.

I was saying that elevated in that way,

they were able to initiate from Heaven a vast work

that God entrusted to them in particular.

The work was arduous, but their blood,

united to the Divine blood,

had been able to make fertile the field of their actions.

3

It was the first Christian martyrs who gave to Christ Himself

the special perfume reserved for divine Victims,

and Christ, in turn, a Martyr and the cause of Martyrs,

valued the perfume of martyrdom of each one of them.

Many Martyrs are unknown

and there are others about whom little is known.

But when all of them become known, that is in Heaven,

then it will be evident how true it is

that the words and the example of Christ have been fertile seeds

that have produced many fruits.

4

Well then, the story that you do not know is this one:

that exalted to the height of the Divine Martyr,

those beloved and kind Martyrs have gained for unfortunate travelers,

the merit that no less than a tenth of them must be saved at all cost.

This is so that those Martyrs may be exalted

and so that the generative virtue propagated in them by Jesus,

the Head of Martyrs, may be acknowledged in them,

always through the means of divine goodness.

Because of that, this marvelous Grace owes itself to the Blood

that was shed on Golgotha

and to the fact that He has shared

a portion of His own Redeeming power with them.

Is this not a very beautiful story?

5

But hear what your brother Bernard is telling you now,

because, besides making you sharers in the goodness of God,

today I have come to you in order to teach you

in what concerns the first Martyrs.

Thus it is I must instruct you in the game of littleness,

that is to say, in humility.

Heaven hears your supplications and groans

wherein you beg for humility which is holy, true and also heartfelt.

We are with you

because God wishes to grant you that virtue in abundance.
