Words of The Holy Spirit
(CEV) “The Notebooks 1944”, p. 45
The Holy Spirit says: “Do not fail to call yourself the word of Him who is Wisdom and Love of God, Him who from eternity to eternity pours Himself upon all that is to sanctify it for God, Him who with his power presided over all the works of our Trinity and who is not foreign to all that is holy in time and in eternity, for I am the Sanctifier, the One who with his septiform gift sanctifies you and bears you to God, making Him known to you in his will on Earth and in his glory in Heaven.
I am the Wisdom of God. I am the One whom the Second Person of our Most Holy Triad calls the ‘Teacher of all truth, He who will not speak to you on his own, but will say everything that He has heard and will announce to you the times to come.’
O you that seek to know even more than what is necessary, this is the One who can give you that knowledge which you seek. I am He. I. Light of Light am I; Spirit of Spirit am I; Intelligence of Intelligence. I am the guardian, the repository of all truths -past, present, and future- the knower of all God’s decrees, the administrator of his lights to men. I am the One who, not absent with my counsel from the Creator’s works, not absent from the decree of Redemption, am not absent from you, either, to counsel you and, with the sweetness of love, make the wishes which the Father proposes to you a fait accompli. I am even more. I am the Love inspiring you with what is suitable for giving you God’s embrace and bearing you to his breast along the path of holiness. Like a merciful wet nurse, I clutch your. incapacity as those just born to Life and educate and raise you. Holding you in my arms, I give you warmth to bring you to assimilate the most sweet milk of the Word of God so that it will become life in you.
I make Myself a shield for you against the dangers of the world and of Satan because Love is a saving power. I guide and support you and, as a master of loving patience, instruct you. I make you burdensome and sluggish, faint-hearted and weak into heroes and athletes of God. I make you spiritually poor into kings of the spirit, for I cover your spirits with my divine splendors and set them on a throne which is the greatest of all, since mine is the throne of eternal holiness. But to know Me it is necessary not to have idolatry in one’s heart. It is necessary to believe in what I have sanctified. To believe in the truths which I have illuminated. It is necessary to abandon error. It is necessary to seek God where He is. Not where the Enemy of God and man is.
Do you want to know the Truth? Oh, come to Me! I alone can tell it to you. And I tell it to you in the way my goodness knows to be appropriate for you, so as not to disturb your weakness as men and your relativity. Why do you love what is contorted, complicated, and dark? Love Me, who am simple, straightforward, and luminous, Me, who am the joy of God and of the spirit.
Do you want to know the future of the spirit? I teach it to you by speaking to you of an eternity awaiting you in a blessedness which is inconceivable for you, in which, after this hour of sojourn, the only sojourn upon the Earth, you shall rest in God from all labors, from all sorrows, and shall forget pain because Joy shall be your possession; and even if Love, which is never so alive as in Heaven, makes you throb with pain over the living, it shall not be pity which gives you pain, but only active love is, which shall also be joy. Do you want to know the Creator’s perfections in things, the mysteries of creation? I can tell them to you, I who, as Wisdom, `emerged first of all from the mouth of God, the firstborn before all creatures,’ I who am in all that is, for everything bears the seal of love, and I am Love.
My Being extends over the whole Universe; my Light bathes the stars, planets, seas, valleys, herbs, and animals in Itself; my Intelligence races over the whole Earth, instructs those far off, gives everyone a reflection of the Exalted, and educates in the search for God; my Charity penetrates like breath and conquers hearts. I attract the just of the Earth to Myself, and to the upright ones without knowledge of the true God I grant reflections of this holy God of yours whereby a streamlet of Truth is in all revealed religions, placed there by Me, who am the One who irrigates and makes fruitful.
In addition, like the powerful surge of an eternal spring, I overflow on all sides of the Catholic Church of Christ, and with Grace, the seven gifts, and the seven sacraments make faithful Catholics into servants of the Lord, those chosen for the Kingdom, sons and daughters of God, brothers and sisters of Christ, and gods whose destiny is so infinitely sublime that any sacrifice is warranted to possess it.
Turn to Me. You will know and understand and be saved, for you will encounter the Truth. Separate, separate yourselves from error, which gives you no joy or peace. Bend your knee before the true God. Before the God who spoke on Sinai and evangelized in Palestine. Before the God who speaks to you through the Church, made into a Teacher by Me, the Spirit of God. There is no other God apart from Us: Triune. There is no other Religion but our centuries -old one. There is no other future, on the Earth and beyond, except the one conveyed to you by the holy Books. Everything else is a Lie destined to be put to shame by Him who is Justice and Truth.
Ask Us -Power, Word, and Wisdom- for light so that you will not walk beyond, along false paths of death, but be able yourselves as well, who are wandering, to come onto the way along which salvation was found by those who, through their humble, wise, holy faith, pleased God, who made them his saints.”
Maria Valtorta: The Notebooks
“These Notebooks belong to a category of mystical literature which the Catholic Church has long been familiar with: that of so-called “private revelations.” A private revelation is not binding for the faith of Christians, but its value is to be measured by its capacity to instruct and inflame souls, spurring them to love God more and apply divine teachings to their everyday lives. In the confidence—and the conviction—that this work superabounds in these inspired qualities, we offer it for the spiritual nourishment of readers. —David Murray
