The Medallion of the Apostolate of the New Evangelization
The Great Crusade of Love
A school for teaching on the relationship of Jesus with Man.
Cochabamba — Bolivia
Spanish Editions: 1996 and 1998
English 1st Edition - November 1999
I have given My Life and My Blood to men. The Blood to wash them, and My Life to resuscitate them.
The Passion in My Soul could not be expressed without lessening its magnitude, but I speak of it to encourage you to consider it, to make you penetrate into My secrets so that you may remain My prisoners and derive My benefits.
I wish I could save My children all suffering, if in this way it would help them, and it would be enough for Me to have endured suffering for their love. But I cannot hide My Passion; on the contrary, I must ignite it in those who wish to please Me in the accepted way of love.
My daughter, love of My pains, trust Me. I take care of My souls and I always direct them to what I have promised, to the things for which each one must give the payment of love. You are united to Me in a state of adhesion to My Will and this pleases Me. But that is not all that I want, because I wish you to be like putty in which I will imprint all that My ardent Heart wishes.
Listen to My love-hungry cry that reverberates. This cry comes from My exhausted chest, and it renews itself more or less according to the correspondence that it finds in many souls chosen with preference by Me.
What do you seek in your intelligence; what do you seek groping in the darkness that surrounds you? In the meantime would you like for Me to give form to My Words? Do you not realize that you are My companion in the Garden? And as such, no one will see you, not even yourself.
Great Wisdom, infinite Love moves Me and you, flower of My Passion and love of My pains, and feeds what I inspire in you, without fear and without consideration to any consequences, because My example should serve you as a perfect model in your life. I was alone with the Father, and so alone that I experienced the maximum confusion. You will please Me if you remain in solitude with Me without any support. This suffering of yours is a part of the trial of which I spoke to you. Offer it to the Father to console Me. Each day we shall make an offering. Start with Me.
