IT IS NOT EASY TO GIVE ME EVERYTHING
Listen, My little child,
the burdens placed on listeners in general
and on neophytes in particular are unbearable.
The Pharisees were masters at building deceit
in the minds of their proselytes,
deceit by which they were believed to be ascetics
by reason of the austerity and rigidity of their doctrine.
And to them I spoke reproaching the hypocrisy that typified them.
To you, precious fruit of My Passion,
I want to give you a very different understanding,
applying the same words.
You have talked with enthusiasm of the gentleness of My law.
You have been a fervent admirer of it
and you have moved to reflection those who heard you.
You have presented the burdens fashioned for others
in a way which is fittingly suitable for a Christian,
whose main task it is to follow Me on the Cross,
and I cannot reproach you for this.
But many times while speaking about it,
you have gone into detail where it was better to avoid it,
and this is because of the past trials
that you yourself have experienced.
These burdens that were given to you,
have formed what is called the scandal of the hypocrites.
Why do you think that I made you pass from one state to another?
Well, it was for this,
so that you could talk to your brothers and sisters about it.
The soul is steady only if she follows Me wisely.
Then, do not think that all can understand what burdens I can give,
because it is necessary instead that you understand
what I want to do with a soul, so as to help her,
by talking to her about trials as I show My intentions for each one.
Oh, yes! It is not easy to give everything to Me.
All for Me is nothing for you,
and nothing for him who wants it all for himself.
It is bitter indeed!
If experiencing one’s own helplessness only once were enough,
I would not go on about it, yet instead,
how many trials are needed in order to convince you.
Sometimes it is through one thing, other times through another;
be it for one reason or for another,
I keep increasing My work of removing your feel-good faith
in order to give you the radiant faith that is justifying and reassuring.
Therefore, walk in peace towards the new goal
at which you must promptly arrive.
Every apparent deceit will be useful.
You will be happy that in spite of and above all things together,
a divine design has overcome and prevailed:
you, the missionary of My love.
