PUT ON THE ARMOR OF GOD
(Italicised entries are Catalina's words)
OUR MINISTRY IS NOT VERY WELL UNDERSTOOD ON EARTH
Raphael the Archangel
He lives always honored and exalted in the Most Holy Trinity.
Christ, Son of God, Son of Man, and His exaltation is this:
the Word, having taken a human nature, was subject to it,
not installed in the honor that would have been proper for Him
as the second Person of the Trinity,
but as the ultimate man, as a representative of all men.
But He represented them in the despicable act of sin
and for that reason He was made victim,
because He assumed all the human faults in a single nature
and, taking onto Himself the full range of man’s malice,
answered for it as His own.
Yes, the Christ you adore must have fallen
to the most profound abyss
so that His mission would be truly Divine.
Hence, He now lives in the Most Holy Trinity.
He, who wanted to, knew how to expiate all evil.
And having done all this, He fully enjoys all goodness
and lives highly constituted in all power and glory.
He has climbed from an intimate despicable act
to the most sublime height;
in Him, the transformation has surged to the heights
that only God could reach.
Yet in this, the mystery of His Humanity is barely illuminated,
a mystery that makes all human minds lose their way.
And if it is not possible
to speak about the mystery of Humanity that relieved evil,
what could be said about the mystery of Humanity
with respect to Divinity?
What must you say about the mystery
that centers between Jesus and Divinity,
as recipient of infinite Goodness?
He not only took upon Himself man’s evil inheritance,
that is sin,
but He also carried the inheritance of endless Goodness,
inasmuch as two natures, the Divine and the Human,
existing in one person.
He contained all attributes from the first,
while from the second He embraced all failings.
How noble will Christ’s Humanity be seen in Heaven!
Oh, how all your knowledge will be surpassed
in which you, nevertheless, will find delight.
Now it is hardly a distant reflection,
later it will become a meridian light;
now you find yourselves in a closed place
where the Light of Christ comes just as sunlight gets to the cellars.
Here where we are, Jesus is the sun
that in itself illuminates us by penetrating us.
We as well are light, but we are His Light;
we too illuminate, but with His splendor.
We lead men to Christ, because He lives in us and we in Him.
Our mystery is unknown on earth where man does not see
and if he sees, it is limited.
But we pray equally.
Yet knowing that we find no comprehension on earth,
we pray for you because Love wants it so
and all His Desire is a delightful pleasure for us.
But the mystery perfected, time concluded,
the Light and the eternal will be seen.
Then you will know what we do for you
and you will be grateful beyond all high praise.
Raphael, God’s Archangel tells you these things,
very few things,
and whoever enjoys the favor of hearing these words,
reflect over the work of the Angels
that God has placed beside each person in a union of charity.
