THE LONELINESS OF THE GARDEN

CS-141 25-Mar-98

Jesus

1

Slowly, with almost no strength,

I had arrived to the foot of the altar

where My sacrifice was about to begin and be consummated.

Dear Peter had believed in My Divinity,

as children believe in their mama,

which is to say without discernment,

due to intense feeling and little comprehension.

2

Thus, Peter soon began to see Me again as a man,

and to love Me in the simple fashion

that ensues from intense friendship.

But later he became a wholehearted defender of My Divinity.

3

Upon reaching the foot of the altar

on which I was about to sacrifice Myself,

I was abandoned to Myself not only by Peter

but also by James and John.

4

Therefore in the solitude, I was overcome by a greater sadness

because in Gethsemane all was heavy and painful for Me

and I was deprived of everything, even the friendship of man.

I could not even see My beloved Father’s countenance.

5

What a night that was!

What anguish in My Heart over the thought,

over the terrible vision of the sins of mankind!

6

My children, the Paradise to which I lead you,

consists always in enjoying Me,

not with an egocentric affection but because of pure love for Me.

And therefore, on earth it is essential to learn how to love.

It is necessary to increase, to purify one’s love,

so that the creature can reach Heaven appropriately.

All is to be considered under this view;

otherwise, the soul sails in thick darkness.

7

You are so fragile, My dear tiny vessels,

that I want to prevent you from crashing against the rocks.

This is why I teach you.

Listen to Me!
