You All Shall Be Glorified
because You Suffer for Me
Let us continue, little flower of My Passion. Beyond all imagination and inasmuch as man can understand, I experienced in Myself abandonment, pain, and death.
From the first to the last hours of My mortal life, whether in secret or facing everyone, I wanted the sin of My brothers to always be present in Me, and so My soul was pierced by continuous arrows of death, leaving in it indescribable sadness. You cannot attribute to Me any larger grandeur than this: to have made Me the target of all your faults.
I knew extremely well the severity of the offenses that were and would be committed against My Father. My Divinity, having taken My Humanity as its instrument, informed Me of the ugliness that is hidden in rebellion and the resulting disobedience, transforming everything into cries of distress and martyrdom in the soul and body. Yet, only one instant would have sufficed, one single sigh from Me would have been enough to effect the redemption for which I had been sent. Nevertheless, I multiplied these sighs, I prolonged My life here below because Wisdom and Love wanted it so.
Having arrived at the end, I wished to intensify in Myself all kinds of sufferings; I saw everything I had to redeem and that everything was attributed to Me. The height of pain was there in the Garden and, as the Man that I wanted to be, I was terrified, overwhelmed, and physically destroyed. My Angel came and consoled Me, showing Me the sorrows that other faithful creatures of Mine would suffer for this suffering of Mine; glory was not shown to Me but rather love, compassion, and togetherness. That is how I received encouragement, some relief and strength.
Therefore, be faithful to Me because I have placed the fruit of My suffering in you and I have loved you, and I love you with unspeakable sweetness.
You all will complete My own Passion, you will be glorified because you suffer for Me who suffered for you. Moreover, I tell you that if you truly love Me, I shall continue suffering in you. I will transform you in such a way that each one of you will come to be a part of Myself, so that in Me you will live the pain as an active part of My Humanity.
