BENEFITS THAT COME FROM AFFLICTION. Part 2 of 3

BENEFITS THAT COME FROM AFFLICTION. Part 2 of 3

DH-38.2 22-Sep-96

The Lord

My Children, what a treasure of merits that a Christian obtains

when he patiently suffers scorn, poverty and sickness.

Scorn received by men is the true desire of saints

who wish to be scorned for their love for Me, to resemble Me.

How much they gain by suffering the discomforts of poverty!

If you believe you are unhappy because poverty lives with you,

you are truly unhappy and worthy of compassion,

not because you are poor,

but because in being poor you do not embrace your poverty

and you consider yourself unfortunate.

To suffer pain and sickness patiently

is to reach in advance a great part of the crown

prepared for you in Heaven.

If a sick man complains that because of his illness he can do nothing,

he is wrong; because he can do everything,

by offering God all his suffering with peace and acceptance.

I punish whom I love

and test those whom I receive as My children with misfortunes (Hebrews 12,6).

One day I told Saint Therese:

You must know that the souls My Father loves the most,

are those who suffer the greatest afflictions.

Learn from Job, who said:

“If we have received good things from the hand of the Lord,

why should we not receive also the bad?”

Do you think it is unfair that he who received with joy life, health,

temporary riches,

should also receive sufferings,

which are more useful and beneficial than prosperity?

My beloved daughter, a soul strengthened by suffering,

is like a flame that grows with the wind.

We will continue later...

Thank you, beloved one.


Later that same day:


The more dreadful afflictions for a good soul

are the temptations with which the devil incites us to offend God;

but he who resists them and suffers them,

imploring for divine help,

acquires with them a great treasure of merits.

In 1st Corinthians 10,13 read:

“And God is faithful and will not let you be tried beyond your strength;

but with the trial he will also provide a way out,

so that you may be able to bear it.”

And in happiness, that you like so much,

I tell you that those who cry will be comforted.

If you do not suffer afflictions with patience,

your state will not be improved and danger will be greater.

The only thing you can do, if you want to be saved,

is to undergo many sufferings to enter My Kingdom.

Do not forget that Paradise is for the poor,

the humble and the afflicted.

In short, I want you to understand that afflictions,

with which I test or correct you,

are not for your perdition, but for your benefit or correction.

When a sinner is afflicted,

it is a sign that I want to have Mercy on him in the other life.

On the contrary, unfortunate is he who is not touched by Me

in this world,

because it is a sign that I am discontent with him

and reserve him for eternal punishment.

The Prophet Jeremiah asked:

“Lord, why do the impious prosper in everything in this world?” (Jeremiah 12,1).

When you are surrounded by suffering sent by Me,\

pray like Job; pray like Saint Augustine, who said:

“Lord, burn, tear and do not forgive in this world,

so you will forgive me in the other, which is eternal.”

That is why, whoever in this world is afflicted by God,

has a sure sign of My Love.

Whoever wants to be glorified with the Saints,

must suffer in this life as the saints suffered.

None of them has been well treated nor wanted by the world,

but all were persecuted.
