Those Who Suffer Today, Join My Passion
The Lord

Love of My wounds, be calm, think of My suffering on the terrible night of Gethsemane. Then I was alone, apparently, nobody was there beside Me. But in a corner, you were hidden among the bushes, and now at night you accompany My Passion.

And you came a bit closer. Your eyes looked at Me with pain, with immense compassion, but also with sorrow, with repentance and deep love.

All My Catalinas were there that night... Do you know what Catalina means? It means "pure woman", pure of intention, pure of heart... Do you feel better?

(I cry with immense gratitude and love. You are unique, Lord!)

Well, you need a lot of peace to transmit it to My beloved daughter. Tell her that I love her very much, that the humble souls were the ones who received My Tears in the most cruel Flagellation in human history. I cried over the lips of humble people. I bent My head over the chest of humility. How could I not if I had breast-fed from the humility of My Mother!

But, those who took My Cross, helping Me, those who kissed My shoulder and refreshed it - as a soft balsam - were the same people who today offer their sufferings, the terrible wounds of their bodies, united to My Passion, for the conversion of men. In fact, they have earned Heaven for themselves and for their people.

Go, Catalina, go and take care of your responsibilities...
