PUT ON THE ARMOR OF GOD
(Italicised entries are Catalina's words)
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE FAITH, YOU CANNOT SEE ME
(In a Prayer Workshop Retreat)
Nobody can see My face unless they are on the path of faith.
It seems contradictory:
if you do not have faith, you cannot see Me
and if you do not see Me, your faith will not grow.
Why do I speak to you?
Why do you find Me when you want to?
Because you had faith,
because - no matter what happens - your faith will persevere;
you know I am here, waiting for you,
to reach out My right hand, grasp your tiny hand,
and by squeezing it, transmit all My Love to you.
The certainty is that I am here, alive and palpitating,
waiting for My children;
for those for whom My Heart overflows with compassion and Mercy...
Look for Me in your silence, find Me.
It is I who have brought you here to teach you
how to look for Me and find Me.
Assimilate everything you can,
do not be distracted as this moment is very important
in the road to your preparation.
I am the One who is in control once more,
now that the grand performance of the world
is almost coming to an end.
My little one, I will wait for you there, beside your room,
in the small space that is flooded with My presence.
How many children could see Me!
All those who always truly want to and ask with faith...
(9:45 The lecturer said that Jesus reproached his parents when He told them that he was carrying out His Father's business.)
This is not true, it was not a reproach.
I wanted to tell them with much respect, humility and love,
not to worry or suffer when they cannot find Me
because, being the Son of God, I should have My moments
to meet with Him who was more than anybody and anything...
(He spoke of when Jesus said that it was His Mother and brothers who fulfilled his wishes.)
I said that all those who fulfilled My Father's Wishes
were My Mother and My brother,
because My Mother nurtured My being.
Everyone can be My Mother and My brothers,
all of you are the fertile womb of My Mother.
Account by Catalina
Just as I was starting my breakfast, through the dining room window, I see something that is moving or obscures. I was dumbfounded. It is St. Michael the Archangel; he does not tell me who he is, but I know. I look at everyone but no one seems to have noticed so I continued looking. He appears and disappears as if he were going from window to window. He is very tall and looks like Father Marcos, but blonder and with long, curly hair that fell to his shoulders. He looks at me and smiles. In his left hand he has a lance or a saber, something that shines brightly. He is dressed all in white with a short skirt, sandals or boots laced up to the knees. All his chest is brilliant like rays, his clothes are white but phosphorescent, like the Virgin's veil. He has a green belt or cord with something golden on it (I could not tell if it was a buckle or something else). He is beautiful, majestic. I want to speak but I am unable to say anything. He raises his right hand (which up to now has been over his heart) he makes a sign to keep silent shhh!… It seemed to me like a very humorous gesture. His wings are immense and I do not know how the wings do not make a noise when they move. I wrote to Hugo and Neiza after he had left.
[Catalina was in a meeting and wrote a little note to Hugo and Neiza after the Angel left, and had passed it to them.]
They looked at me with something between incredulity and mockery. I told myself: It is best to keep quiet and say nothing more. I went to the Oratory after breakfast and asked Our Lord why I was the only one to see that. Silence, He does not say anything...
