MY DISCIPLES DID NOT SOLELY LIVE A CONTEMPLATIVE LIFE
Part 2 of 2 CS-101 23-Dec-97
This is what studying is about: because I desire it.
That is to say: the benefit that you must desire
should not be as if predisposed by you.
It would be good instead, that you receive from Me the benefits
that I predispose for you.
And in order to do this, it is necessary to have a general intention,
which is that of taking great care,
while reading My messages or about certain subjects,
of following the particular influences that I give during the reading.
Anything that I say to a soul, I say it for all,
as everyone is My favorite.
If they only knew of My love for each of them!
You [Catalina], continue to believe in this love
and draw benefit from it; exploit it.
Many decline My calls made through a book,
and attribute them to the author, and so, My call is futile
because those souls exchange My work
with that of the one who has written it down.
Thus, they form an opinion of the writing clerk
and lose the gifts that I desire to give them.
Why is it that from the same book or text,
one is attracted to one thing and others to another?
Why do some lines take on a special hue for some,
while for others, they remain colorless?...
Here is My secret and yours
if you want to make progress by studying holy things.
That is to say, that the secret is to go as far as I allow you to go
in understanding and delving deeply into this or that thesis,
into this or that thought.
How much fatigue would you spare yourselves this way!
How much light would penetrate your spirit
by listening to the interior invitation that I extend to you!
My daughter, I Am love.
He who grows in love, grows in the possession of Me…
do you want to take Me, now?
(It is a marvelous experience to receive again the Sacred Communion from the hands of My Jesus. As I felt the Host on my tongue, His Being inundated my small being... “Thank You, My beloved Lord! To have You and not die is to die to have You always in me...”)
