Depart with Me from the
Garden of Gethsemane
My daughter, through love and suffering you are a victim for the priests, for the sinners, and for the souls in purgatory. Be ready for any type of suffering for them. Little one, on the Cross I saved the world. I have given My Blood for you. Do not forget that suffering is the price on earth, in which I am preparing a happier future for your country and the whole world.
(Jesus takes me to Calvary and I see the soldiers breaking the legs of the two thieves crucified with Him.)
If the Merciful Love of the Father had not decreed that I die beforehand, they would have broken My Body, just like they did with them. The secret of that will be revealed to all at the last judgment. Unite yourself to Me in a prayer of thanksgiving… Yes, I carried on My shoulders the most horrible sins of the entire world; while I agonized on the Cross, I did win My Father’s favor.
In today’s world there is a greater need of lambs for the sacrifice. But they must think that participation in the work of redemption does not only consist of sacrifice. One must depart from the Garden of Gethsemane and follow the path that I traveled. Without this there are no merits nor offering of the fruitful life, since the sooner the surrender of a soul, the more it glorifies the Father and, therefore, it will help save more souls and be the benefactor of all humanity. Daughter, so many graces it can attain for the Church and priests! A soul like that cooperates efficaciously to the conversion of sinners, the relief of the sick, the salvation of the dying, so that souls get to eternal happiness.
Because of that, think about souls needing the suffering accepted by you like the sick need medicine. I cannot take away the cross from the shoulders of the chosen souls, although at times they would seem to fall under its weight, because then the process of curing the souls would be interrupted and it would leave to perish those that still can be saved. When the debt of one or several souls is cancelled, thanks to their offered suffering, I take away the cross for some time so that My victim souls regain vigor…
My children, turn your thoughts and unselfish love towards how to be able to save sinners, because you know very well that there is nothing in this world as precious as souls. Become holy so that you can really be My apostles, dressed as Christ, before My Father.
When My Father chooses a soul to give it the grace of being one of His chosen ones, on earth it is already destined to be like Me. And how should it be like Me? In love and acceptance of suffering. If in this you follow Me, My Father will recognize Me in you. The chosen souls can try hard to save souls by praying fervently, practicing active and helpful charity, with meekness, humility, mortification, but above all, with the patient acceptance of suffering.
Go in your greatest trials to My Eucharistic Heart that is your nourishment in the earthly pilgrimage. Thus nourished daily, you continue the road to the eternal abode, where in glorious ecstasy the ones, which have made of their lives an offering of love to God’s glory and the good of souls, will recognize themselves in each other.
