Being United to Me Is
Valued So Little!
More than sad, you should see Me afflicted because of the great abundance of sins that everyone weighs on the only Man who could bear them.
Your miseries were eased by My pitiful anguish and, what caused you solace was an indescribable burden for Me. Then, why do you moan if you experience the burdens that I carried and still continue carrying? Do you not want to be like Me exactly like you have believed necessary for My honor? And here I am, for this reason, I offer you the means to accomplish your wish, but they are despicable means that you must transform into pearls of much merit to adorn you in My honor. Consider that this is reality, not the one that shows itself off in men and perhaps in you. If it were not like this, why would I be insisting on this point? Take, take your Cross, you should also be a "Nazarene" and it does not matter that I want to make you small or big, what matters is for you to please Me.
Act with this persuasion and renew your ties to Me, because outside of this there is no tranquility, just as outside of My Desire there is no peace, which consists precisely in the agreement between your will and Mine.
Yes, blessed be the peaceful ones who have good will; they are in full possession of themselves and will truly be custodians of their souls, inasmuch as they have in their hands the key that opens and closes their desire.
Being united to Me in full acceptance of the adversities is valued so little! One considers it more convenient to remedy adverse things using your human experiences or other reasons, all dictated by self-esteem instead of having recourse to My commands that I have dictated, justly for those things that concern you and not for imaginary or hypothetical adversities that are not present.
I have spoken for the future, but in a present sense and My invitation is present for you in all occasions. As for the test, I do not ask for the impossible nor your ruin, but only for you to embrace as tightly as possible the cross I give you.
As for Me, I repeat, the example I left you was so great, not for you to think that you have to do as much, but to bring the evidence to your attention and induce you to follow My steps. Yes, you must be crucified but without making it evident as long as possible. Later I will see about showing evidence of your cross.
