Be Happy to Suffer for Me
Little missionary of pain, My Peace and My Love are with you... Thank you, My child, for giving Me refuge and consolation so that I may rest from the pain that humanity, especially My family, gives Me.
My Mother is here, but she can no longer speak to you. She is leaving the places in which she has worked so intensely for Me. This is not only her decision, but also that of My Father; as always, she makes the Divine Wish the love of her Immaculate Heart.
The negative is the negation of truth; it is the refusal to see the positive. Man, human beings, with their pride, their susceptibility, their faith in trials... who do they think they are to doubt what I am doing with My children? Do they have to be like Thomas to prove that what I am doing is the truth?... Terrible rashness to compete with God! That is how they, who close their hearts to Love when it knocks on the door, lose their way... Do not be afraid; I know what I am saying.
I know that this week the pain was greater... Daughter of Mine, there are so many souls to save and so few who wish to help Me. The photographs were necessary. When the pain is greatest, rest your head on My shoulder; warm yourself in the flame of My Divine Love.
Do you not know that I am aware of what you give Me? However, I give you everything back multiplied a thousandfold, because there is nothing that I would not do for you. I have done everything for the love of you and through you I spread My Grace over the whole nation; you are the channel through which My Love wishes to spread.
Be assured of the correctness of your feelings for the Word of your Lord. You are not wrong, I repeat, rest assured. Be assured that if you were wrong, I Myself would be wrong. Could that be possible?
To live My Messages is to authenticate them... Be happy to suffer for Me. Enjoy, take pleasure in My Love in those precious moments in which the soul feels like it is dying, when it feels the chains of its God. Whatever you teach in My name is covered with My power and sealed with My Love. If this Love, in its purity, does not place you above the wretchedness of this world and cannot, through its action in you, resolve the problems that weigh them down, you are to blame for judging with too much ease the errors of others... This is not for you; I have selected you, and you must respond generously to what I expect of you.
I only ask that you improve your first instincts; there is no reason for you to fight. Just explain what I want; whether others do as I wish or not, it not your responsibility. Dust the dirt from your sandals and go to another town.
Tell them that true knowledge is not fighting, but in opening oneself to the illumination of a love that is lived.
The enemy to be beaten is not outside, but inside. It is not necessary to search for the enemy in others; rather, learn first to know yourselves and then you will win a victory over the enemy. Happy are they who epitomize the spirit of the Redeemer by being charitable.
Thank you for coming; you have brightened the Immaculate Heart of My Mother and Me. I am pouring out our thanks, which will translate into numerous fruits of love and saintliness. Put your problems into My hands. Make sure that it is only sin that upsets you. I open My Heart to those who are just. I open My Arms to the unbelievers, just like I did yesterday, just like I will do tomorrow. I hand over the rebels to My Justice.
Prepare yourself; reread the Messages. I need you to speak in My name, because it is Love that is now imploring the world. Why do you not recognize Me through the words of My children? Make sure that your trust in Me is not weakened by contradictions, by a lack of understanding... Give to the world what it most needs. You are My sweet holocaust of love.
Every work is subject to the criticism of those who are unable to commit themselves to understanding it in depth. I say to you: Be careful; whoever seeks shall find!
Beloved daughter, kiss the ground asking forgiveness for the sins you have committed against the Spirit, because whoever is unable to change their life in accordance with the gifts received through My goodness, without any merit on their part, is guilty of a sin against the Spirit.
My little daughter, give so that I can give to you. Do you not see that I give to you, so that you can give to Me? Make an effort, love of My pain. Something of outstanding quality can only be formed with a little of everything: physical, spiritual, internal, moral... Your defects are just a consequence of a difficult to prove total focus on self. I love your humbly confessed weakness... It does not matter that you do not understand; ask My son, R. [name of person]. You have no idea how many wonderful things I am preparing for you. We will finally be together, working for the glory of My name in the heart of My children.
DH-29.1 I Love You, but Do You Love Me?
I love you, but do you love Me? Then I gave to My children so that they would not be afraid to commit themselves to My work. I will work great things in you and through you... Remain in My Peace and My Love. Flower of My Passion, give Me the sighing of your tender young heart...
