Katya Rivas: Jesus Is Nailed to the Cross

The Medallion of the Apostolate of the New Evangelization

The Great Crusade Of Love

The Passion Extract #21....

Reflections of Jesus....

Jesus Is Nailed to the Cross

Look with what cruelty these hardened men surround Me. Some pull the Cross and lay it on the ground; others tear off My clothes that adhere to the wounds that open again and blood oozes out.

Look, beloved children, at how much shame and confusion I suffer seeing Myself this way before that immense mob.... What pain for My soul!

The executioners tear off My tunic and toss lots for it; this tunic with which My Mother covered Me with so much care during My childhood, and had grown in size as I had. What would be My Mother's sorrow as she contemplates this scene?

How she would have desired to keep that tunic, now stained and soaked with My Blood.

But the hour has arrived and the executioners stretching Me on the Cross, take and pull My arms to make them reach the holes prepared in it. All My Body is breaking, it swings from side to side and the thorns of the crown penetrate even deeper into My head. Listen to the first blow of the hammer that nails My right hand... it resounds to the depths of the earth. Listen some more... they are nailing My left hand and, at the presence of such a spectacle, the heavens tremble, and the Angels prostrate themselves. I keep the most profound silence. Neither a complaint, nor a moan escapes My lips, but My tears mingle with the Blood that covers My face.

After they have nailed My hands, they cruelly pull My feet... My wounds open, the nerves in My hands and arms tear, the bones are dislocated... The pain is intense!

My feet are nailed and My Blood soaks the earth!...

Contemplate for a moment these bloodstained hands and feet... This naked body, covered with wounds, with urine, and blood. Dirty... This head punctured by sharp thorns, soaked in sweat, full of dust, and covered in Blood...

Admire the silence, the patience, and the conformity with which I accept this suffering. Who suffers like this, a victim of such humiliation? He is the Son of God! He who made the heavens, the earth, the seas, and all that exists... The One who created man, the One who sustains all with His infinite power... He is there immobile, despised, stripped, and followed by a multitude of souls that will abandon: worldly possessions, family, country, honors, well-being, glory, and whatever may be necessary to give Him Glory and show Him the love owed Him...

Be attentive, Heavenly Angels, and you too, souls who love Me... The soldiers are going to turn the cross around, to rivet the nails so that they do not come out from the weight of My Body and may allow Me to fall. My Body is going to give the earth the kiss of peace. And while the hammering rings out through space, at the top of Calvary the most admirable spectacle is fulfilled... At the request of My Mother who, contemplating all that was happening and being unable to give Me relief, implores the Mercy of My Heavenly Father... Legions of Angels come down to adore My Body, and to sustain it so as not to touch the earth and, to avoid its being crushed by the weight of the Cross.

Contemplate your Jesus, hanging on the Cross, without being able to make the slightest movement... naked, without fame, without honor, without liberty... They have snatched everything from Him! There is no one who takes pity and feels sorry for His pain! He only receives tortures, ridicule, and mockery!

If you truly love Me, will you be ready to be like Me? What will you refuse in order to obey Me, to please Me, to console Me?...

Prostrate yourself to the ground and let Me tell you a few words:

May My Will triumph in you!

May My Love destroy you!

May your misery glorify Me!
