MAKE YOURSELVES SMALL Part 1 of 2

MAKE YOURSELVES SMALL

Part 1 of 2 CS-68 18-Oct -97

Jesus

1

Man must make himself like the smallest one,

if he wants to imitate Me.

Who is the smallest One?

The smallest One is He, who being the greatest of all,

has become Man.

And who is the greatest One?

All of you know it.

For this reason whoever wants to imitate Me

must liken himself to Me.

2

I hope that none of you answers Me as did Nicodemus,

who at the beginning did not know what it was to be reborn,

because you have been reborn

and you are growing under My diligent gaze

3

 As you grow, you must see yourselves ever smaller,

until you hold yourselves as nothing.

Also My Humanity in itself is nothing,

because all that it has subsists not but by My Divinity,

which is One and Alone, and it has it all in Itself.

Therefore, by way of the thought of your nothingness

you can esteem yourselves ever lesser, ever smaller.

That is what I meant

when I proposed that you make yourselves small.

4

I promised you to talk about Thérèse of Lisieux.

She spoke of spiritual infancy,

summing up her thinking in a filial abandonment

in the arms of the Father.

Listen to her, since this abandonment produces holy fruits

which value you cannot understand beforehand.

But I assure you that the smaller you feel,

the more will you abandon yourselves to Him who is great.

Imitate little Thérèse,

whose trust has merited My praises.

Be great in virtue, small in your own self-esteem.

5

Let My Humanity which is lying on the straw, or nailed to the cross,

tell you that it is natural for him who loves,

to efface himself for the beloved.

6

All of you know that from time to time,

I reproach you sweetly because you do not always listen to Me,

and I tell you clearly why you do not listen to Me,

even when at times, for your own good,

I put My finger on the wound.

So, you must be aware that today,

in talking to you about smallness and nothingness,

I have in mind a wound that is common to all of you, to everyone,

and it is about one’s personal esteem.

But this esteem is a barrier which brings to a halt

all those who love halfheartedly.

The sooner you overcome this barrier,

the faster will you touch the goal.

Which of you will reach it first?

I am watching; I am helping you.
