Your Will Be Done Not Mine
The things I tell you now are for your instruction and so that others may make them objects for meditation. They are stated in a very explicit way so that there will be no doubt in their minds and also so that it may assist in the sanctification of other souls.
I shall speak to you about the favorite topic in which you find abundant nourishment.
What feelings did I have when asking the apostles to keep Me company praying in the night of Gethsemane? It was sadness and a premonition of agony that moved Me to ask for that help and I asked openly, overtaken by the great knowledge of the complete sacrifice that was awaiting Me.
But they did not have the necessary comprehension as My witnesses since they could not understand, not even vaguely, what I wanted when asking for their help. I was well acquainted with them, but for their future education, I did not speak because I was hoping to see them included in My suffering, since contemplating they would have been united to Me in their future sorrows of apostles. So that each one of you knows that to fulfill My desires, it is always necessary to pray and to be vigilant.
But this is not all, it is only the
part that corresponds to you. And My part? My humanity
greatly resisted taking the first step into that Garden that
was to be the place of My capture and the beginning of My
sufferings, always anticipated and now present. How many
times had I prayed in that Garden without experiencing even
an instant of indecision! But to give you all hope, My
beloved ones that are put on earth to continue My Passion, I
wanted to manifest My weakness and in this way, reinforce
If I proceeded in this manner, you also should ask for real help with prayer and to watch over the suffering of your brothers, mankind.
But this is the exterior side of the events. I was like an overloaded boat about to cross an ocean full of squalls. I was relying only on My gift and in the illuminated power of My Father through which I asked Him to save Me from that hour… Sadness, grief, solitude, faintness: that was My state…
And you, how are you now? Do you understand, then, that I make you in My image? You, too, put your knees on the ground of your sacrifice and say with Me: "Father, if it is possible, take this cup away from Me, but Your will be done, not Mine." And when you have said with intimate conviction: FIAT, then everything will stop and you will be renewed in My Love.
