PUT ON THE ARMOR OF GOD
(Italicised entries are Catalina's words)
PURITY AND THE RIGHT INTENTION ARE NECESSARY TO MAKE THE GIFT ACCEPTABLE
Every time My Body is offered at the altar,
an increase of grace and a confirmation
in the golden book of the future blessed ones,
is granted to the one who offers it;
be it minister or layman.
But the offering of Myself to the Father
is not as simple as it may seem.
In effect, to make the offering acceptable,
purity of conscience and the right intention are essential conditions.
If you wish, you can offer Me for yourself and for others;
try to be clean of all blemish.
How much I am honored by the soul that,
recognizing that it is deprived of all good,
offers Me to the Father to lessen his sins and that of others.
This is an act of faith, hope, and charity at the same time,
an act in which I am truly glorified by the creature and by My Father.
By the creature, because he recognizes Me as his Redeemer;
by the Father, because appreciating infinitely the offering,
He gives Me the fruit
in proportion to the hope that He puts in My work
as Mediator between man and God.
Soul of Mine, you have sinned much, it is true,
but now all has been forgiven.
And do you know why?
Because of the offerings you have made of Me when you attend Mass
and participate with love for it.
I have given you the full fruit of My suffering
because you have come to understand, with My Light,
that it is better to think in My honor, in My Glory,
before your justification.
You have forgotten in a certain sense, your doubts
in order to concentrate on My crown of glory.
That is why you think of Me, and I have thought of you…
