“In our time more than ever before, the greatest asset of those disposed toward evil is the cowardice and weakness of good men, and all the vigor of Satan’s reign is due to the easygoing weakness of Catholics. Oh! if I might ask the Divine Redeemer, as the Prophet Zachary did in spirit (Zach. 13:6a): 'What are those wounds in the midst of Thy hands?' The answer would not be doubtful: '...With these I was wounded in the house of them that loved me.' (Zach. 13:6b) 'I was wounded by my friends, who did nothing to defend me, and who, on every occasion, made themselves the accomplices of my adversaries.' And this reproach can be leveled at the weak and timid Catholics of all countries.”
"You have but to annihilate yourself. You are only a wretched shell under which I hide Myself; I have always loved what was in appearance abject and to be scorned.
"I am not known, I am not loved, I am a treasure which is not prized. I wish to prepare for Myself souls who can understand Me. I am a torrent whose waters cannot be restrained. I wish to find for myself souls who will receive these waters? I intend to make for Myself chalices to be filled with the waters of My love.
"I shall work marvels. Nothing shall stop Me, neither Satan's efforts nor souls' unworthiness. I shall prepare victims to pay for these marvels. I thirst for hearts to appreciate Me and to make Me fulfill the end for which I am there on the altar.
"I am outraged, I am insulted. Before the end of time I wish to be compensated for all the outrages I have endured. I wish to diffuse all the graces that have been refused.
"Do you know what it is to adore? I am the only one who really adores. I am Sovereign Beauty."
This was the year 1867.
If then, what of 1967?
What of today?
Who will receive these waters? "Haurietis Aquas ..." (Is. 12, 3)
