Year B- 31th Sunday in ordinary time
33 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole earth until the ninth hour.
Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of JesusI surrendered my life on the cross voluntarily. As God, I had all the power to avoid my death, but as Savior I knew the price of my mission, this is why I consented to all the tortures and to death.
As man, I felt the temptation to reject the chalice of suffering. I prayed to my Father three times, but in doing his holy will I allowed everything to happen the way He had disposed. At the time of my death I felt the rejection of all humanity that despised my sacrifice. I felt the abandonment of all human beings when they sin and turn their backs to me. I had great frustration for all those who didnít put value to my saving work and I felt the abandonment of my Father.
All human beings are subject to temptation and to the rejection of Godís will, however I have come to give my testimony of self-denial, humility and perfect love, which consists in loving God up to the point of self-sacrifice.
It is precisely by not doing the will of God that every person who rejects the cross feels as if it gets heavier and bigger through suffering. Those who using their wisdom accept the will of God feel a special joy when they have any adversity because they have surrendered their lives to the divine will and understand that God has absolute control of everything that occurs, especially concerning the spiritual world which is not temporal as suffering but extends to eternal life. Every cross has as a crown as a reward; every suffering has a spiritual reward. Many adversities allow the soul to obtain pardon, humility, perseverance, strength and wisdom, very important things in the spiritual way.
The veil of the sanctuary was torn at the moment of my death as a sign of disapproval of the sacrifice of animal for the expiation of sins, implementing in this way the new covenant between God and men in which I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.
With my divine power I surrendered my life to become the salvation of humanity and I continue giving my life to all those who receive me in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. For those who die with me I have the gift of the resurrection and eternal life.
