THE GOODS OF THIS WORLD ARE THE WEEDS OF THE FIELD
Part 3 of 3 CS-81 12-Nov-97
Then he will wish for one more month,
one more week so as to be able to better settle his affairs
and to appease his own conscience.
He will seek peace but will not find it.
He who finds that he has responded
to the light and inspirations received, will be rewarded,
but he who does not, will be condemned.
You do not recall My divine Graces, but I remember them,
and when a sinner disdains them, I, to a certain extent,
permit that he die in his sin.
And then the hardship that he suffered to obtain employment,
wealth and acclaim in the world is entirely lost,
given that only the works and tribulations suffered for Me
are good for eternal life.
He who loathes, or mortifies his soul in this world
keeps her for eternal life.
The really happy one is he who loves God
and knows how he can be saved.
Some parents say: “I am not as concerned about myself
as I am for my children, about leaving them well situated.”
But I respond to them: “If you wasted the goods you possess
and left your children submerged in poverty,
you would act wrongly and you would sin.
Yet, you would act even worse if you lose your souls
trying to leave your family economically well situated.”
Otherwise tell Me:
“If you go to hell, would your children go and take you out of there?”
King David already said that he has never seen the just man forsaken
or his children begging for bread.
Tend to My affairs; seek My Kingdom and its righteousness,
I will not stop providing for your children with all that they need,
and you will be saved
and will obtain that treasure of eternal happiness
that no one will be able to take away from you…
Use the temporal goods only to conserve your lives
during the brief length of time that you will live.
Meditate unceasingly on the fact that you are here as pilgrims
but charged with a very important commission:
your salvation and that of your brothers and sisters.
If you do not succeed in carrying out this project,
in vain were you born and worked,
in vain have you struggled.
What is worse, in vain have you been redeemed with My blood,
since for your carelessness you will be condemned…
