Meditations from True Life in God

I am God, creature, be at My Stations. Desire Me only, at every Station; I stand at every Station; I will be at the Stations of My Cross, and I want you there; I want you to kneel at My Stations.(May 29th, 1987)

1. Jesus is condemned to death by Pilate
(Mt 27.26; Mk 15.15; Jn 19.16)

Soon, and that is your soon, when you will be covered by your own blood, I as Judge then, will remind you of the blood you were carrying on your hands for having prohibited so many to receive My graces through this Reminder of My Word – you are as the Romans, crowning Me with thorns daily. Are you going to say then as Pilate: « I am innocent of this blood » and wash you hands in perfumed water? You refuse to accept the antidote of death, you refuse to acknowledge My Word given by My Holy Spirit in your days… (January 19th, 1995)

2. Jesus takes up His Cross
(Mt 27.31; Mk 15.20; Lk 23.26; Jn 19.17)

They tied up My feet with ropes, and told Me to walk to where My Cross was. Daughter, I could not go since they had My feet tied, so they hauled Me to the ground and dragged Me by My hair towards My Cross. My pain was intolerable; parts of my flesh which hung from the scourging was ripped off. They loosened the ropes off My feet and kicked Me to get up and lift My burden on My shoulders. I could not see where My Cross was, for My Eyes were filled up with My Blood, which was streaking down My Face from the thorns which had penetrated My Head. So they lifted My cross and laid it on My shoulders, pushing Me towards the gates. Daughter, O how heavy My Cross was which I had to bear! I felt My way to the gate, led by the scourge behind Me; I tried to see My way through My Blood, which burned My Eyes. (November 9, 1986)

The cross you will bear is My Cross of Peace and Love, but to bear My precious Cross, daughter, you will have to do much self-sacrifice; be strong and bear My Cross with love; with Me you will share it and you will share My sufferings.

3. Jesus falls under the weight of the Cross

I dragged Myself up; the crowds turned wild; I could see no friend around Me; no one was there to console Me; My agony seemed to grow, and I fell on the ground. (November 9th, 1986)

4. Jesus meets His Holy Mother

I came in this Holy Heart, image and likeness to My Sacred Heart, to become God-Man so that I follow Her steps and that later on She follows Mine. I have said that She and I shared everything all the way to the Cross; Our union was so intimately perfect that We did not need speech, for the sole utterance was in Our Heart. My words and My thoughts did not need to be carried to Her in My absence; in the supreme power of My Holy Spirit, everything was known to Her; in Her virginal Heart everything was known to Her, since She possessed God and God possessed Her. (March 25th, 1996)

5. Simon the Cyrene helps Jesus to carry the Cross
(Mt 27.32; Mk 15.21)

Fearing that I would expire before the Crucifixion, the soldiers ordered a man called Simon to bear My Cross. Daughter, it was not a gesture of kindness or compassion; it was to save Me for the Cross. […] Bear My Cross, Vassula, bear it for Me. (November 9th, 1986)

Let Me leave My Cross on you again; unburden Me, let Me rest; I want you to bear it for Me because I trust you; […] here now I entrust you with My Cross; soon you will realize how heavy My Cross is; later on I will come back to relieve you.

6. St. Veronica wipes the Face of Jesus

I allowed them to crown Me with a crown of thorns; I allowed them to mock Me and to spit on My Holy Face (March 3rd, 1989) I then felt someone wiping My Face. (November 9th, 1986) Vassula, yes, look into My Face. To have seen Me, consoles Me. Tell them that it takes so little to console Me. Come and praise Me, loving Me. (June 7th, 1987)

If you only knew how I am ready to forgive your era’s crimes by just one kind look at Me, a moment’s regret, a sigh of hesitation, a slight reconsideration, a smile at My Holy Face and I shall forgive and forget. I shall not even look at My Wounds. I will efface from My sight all your iniquities and sins, had you one mere moment of regret, and all Heaven would celebrate at your gesture, for your smile and your kind look will be received like incense by Me, and that slight moment of regret will be heard like a new song by Me. (August 29th, 1989)

7. Jesus falls again under the weight of the Cross

I love all those who fall and come to Me asking for forgiveness; I love them still more. I will never reject them even if they fall millions of times […] I will not see you fall; I will be near you to sustain your falls. (January 30th, 1987)

I love you, and I will sustain your falls, I will not see you lost. (May 15th, 1987)

8. Jesus comforts the women of Jerusalem
(Lk 23.27-32)

Women in agony came forth, washing My swollen Face; I heard them weeping and mourning; I felt them, « Be blessed, » I uttered. « My Blood will wash away all sins of mankind; behold, daughter, the time has come for your salvation. » (November 9th, 1986)

Alas! for those who would still be carrying their sin, coiled inside them as with child when My Day comes! (June 2nd, 1991)

Then all the earthly rulers, the governors and the commanders, the rich people and the men of influence, the whole population, slaves and citizens, will take to the mountains to hide in caves and among the rocks. They will say to the mountains and the rocks, `fall on us and hide us away from the One who sits on the Throne and from the anger of the Lamb (March 3rd, 1992)

9. Jesus falls once again under the weight of the Cross

My Heart fills with compassion for your misery and your falls. (May 31st, 1987)

Today I am asking those who refuse this revelation this question: « is it against My Law in your era to save My creation from falling by My Providential Works of today? » (January 2nd, 1988)

10. Jesus is stripped of His garments
(Mt 27.35; Mk 15.24; Lk 23.34; Jn 19.23-24)

Arriving on the Mount, they thrust Me on the ground, tearing off Me My clothes, leaving Me naked for every eye to see Me; My wounds, opening again, and My Blood flowing out on the earth. The soldiers offered Me wine mixed with gall. I refused it, for deep inside Me, I had already the bitterness given to Me by My foes. (November 9th, 1986)

Your clothes, My child, will roll in your blood, and this too will be the evidence that you come from Me. You were born for this and your acceptance delights Me because through your sufferings I will save many: (October 25th, 1995)

11. Jesus is nailed to the Cross
(Mt 27.35+55; Mk 15.24; Lk 23.33+49; Jn 19.18)

They quickly nailed My Wrists first; and after allowing the nails to set in My Cross, they stretched My broken Body, and with violence, pierced My Feet through. Daughter, O daughter, what pain, what agony, what torment of My Soul. Forsaken by My beloved ones, denied by Peter, upon whom I would found My Church, denied by the rest of My friends, left all alone, abandoned to My foes, I wept, for My soul was filled with sorrows. (November 9th, 1986)

I have allowed them to crucify Me – all out of Love for you. O children of The Crucified! How could you forget all that I have done for you? Wisdom had descended, to be taken by force and by law. I was despised and rejected by men to bear your sufferings. I was nailed to the Wood to free you. I allowed them to pierce Me and deliver you. I accepted a most painful death, so that your soul may live and be able to share My Kingdom. I let My Blood run out into Rivers so that you may obtain Eternal Life. For your sake, I allowed Myself to be taken for a sinner. (March 3rd, 1989)

How could you not love one another? How could you honour Me when you select and reject?

12. Jesus dies on the Cross
(Mt 27.50; Mk 15.37; Lk 23.46+49; Jn 19.30)

The soldiers erected My Cross, setting it in the furrow. I gazed upon the crowds from where I was, hardly seeing from My swollen Eyes. I watched the world; I saw no friend among those who mocked Me; no one was there to console Me. « My God! My God! why have you forsaken Me? » Forsaken by all those who loved Me. My gaze fell on My Mother; I looked upon Her, and Our Hearts spoke: « I am giving You My beloved children to be your children too. You are to be their Mother. » (November 9th, 1986)

Remember when I was on the Cross? what were the words I said? I said that She is your Mother too?; She loves you and cares for you?; Abba gives to whom He pleases?; accept what God is giving you.

I cried out from My Cross. It was My last, loud cry I gave when I was in flesh, a cry full of sufferings, pains, and bitterness resounding from the depths of My Soul, piercing the heights in Heaven. It shook the earth’s foundations and tore in half the hearts of those who loved Me, as it ripped the veil in the Temple. It aroused devoted followers of Mine, as It aroused the dead from the graves, overthrowing the earth that covered them, as It overthrew Evil. Great thunder shook the very Heavens above, and every angel, trembling, fell prostrate and worshipped Me in total silence. My Mother, standing nearby, on hearing My Cry, fell to the ground on her knees and covered her face, weeping, carrying that last cry with Her to the day of Her dormition, She suffered… (April 29th, 1987)

All was ending; salvation was near; I saw the heavens open, and every angel stood erect; all stood in silence: « My Father, into Your Hands I commend My Spirit; I am with You now. » ((November 9th, 1986)

I am embittered, suffering still from many iniquities of the world, wickedness, lawlessness, and egoism. My Cry is growing louder every day. I was left alone on My Cross, alone to bear the sins of the world on My Shoulders, alone to suffer, alone to die, shedding My Blood, which covered the entire world, redeeming you, My beloved ones. That same Cry is now on earth like an echo of the past. Am I living in the shadows of the past? Was My Sacrifice in vain? How can you not hear then My Cry from The Cross? Why do you shut your ears and dispel It? (April 29th, 1987)

13. Jesus is taken down from the Cross

Never lose courage; I am beside you. Enter into Jesus’ Wounds; enter into My Sorrowful Heart and feel My sorrow; feel how I weep. I come to many; I show them My Heart; I give signs by letting My Images shed tears; I appear at various places, but My children’s hearts are covered by a thick crust – a layer of disbelief. They ridicule those who believe. The Word of God means nothing to them – the calls of God are ignored; they pay little heed on Our warnings. No one wants to listen on revelations given by God and spoken from His Mouth. Your era’s faith has vanished – swept away by intolerance, perversion, cruelty and ignominy. How sorrowful My Immaculate Heart is. My Hand can no longer keep God’s Arm from falling upon you. (August 6th, 1988)

14. Jesus is laid in the Sepulchre
(Mt 27.60; Mk 15.46; Lk 23.53; Jn 19.41-42)

I mean to raise you from your graves and lead you back to your domain, My Sacred Heart. (April 10th, 1990) And you, My child, who read Me or hear Me, you whom I visited your grave and made My Breath enter you, I tell you: follow the marks of My Blood I leave behind for you as a sign and if you are stopped and interrogated on your way by a passer-by, tell him that you are my pupil and I your Master and that you are on your way to witness a crucified Christ, a resurrected Christ. And if you will be stopped by a trader beware of his dishonesty, beware that he does not exchange the Cross I have given you for a corrupt so-called wisdom. Without a sound, without a word, embrace more fervently than ever the bar across your shoulders and follow the marks of My Blood and they will lead you to Me; and if anyone of these start proceeding against you, do not cover your face against insult or strike, offer your backs too so that they know you from your wounds. Let them be a perfect imitation of My Wounds for they will be given to you by the very same ones who stroke Me, your Master, and then the Sign of the Son of Man will appear in the skies. A great light shall be seen in your darkness, for I, the Holy One, mean to save you for the sake of My Name. (October 22nd, 1990)

Come, My child, you who hear Me or read Me, I have shown My Love for you again in this testimony. Do not say that I am too far away to love, for at this very instant My Eyes are upon you with a special tenderness and an affection you can never understand fully. Had I to return just for your sake alone to redeem you, without the slightest hesitation I would come and repeat My Passion, for your sake alone! Now do you believe Me when I tell you that a man can have no greater love than to lay down his life for his friends?

I am telling you all this so that you may find your peace in My Sacred Heart, so that you may find True Life in Me, so that you may find true love and rest in Me your God. I know that you are weak My child, but your weakness attracts My Omnipotence.

Can you take in what I say? I say: peace be with you! I am the Victim of Love who speaks to you, I am He who gave you this testimony of Love as a reminder of My Love. Absorb Me and allow Me to invade you. Feel how My Heart yearns for a return of love! Do not resist Me…… Come to Me as you are, come and drink the flow of My Heart and you shall thirst for more. Oh, so many of you wandered away from the Truth and went this way and that – the Truth is LOVE. I am the Truth. Be witnesses for the Truth – receive the Holy Spirit of Truth, receive the Holy Spirit of Grace. I bless you all, leaving My Sigh of Love on your foreheads. Be one under My Holy Name. (October 22nd, 1990)
