The path that leads to Life is short. It’s short because the days of men who walk across it are already set. It’s short because we are created for Eternity, for the luminous day of the light, for the encounter with God.

This path is a pilgrimage across the exile that irremissibly leads us to the frontiers of life.

 

“Thinking of heaven
in the emptiness of an abyss without light”

The way that leads to Life is short. It is short because the days of the men who walk through it are numbered. It is short because we are created for Eternity, for the luminous day of the Light, for the encounter with the Father, and this way that leads us to the Fatherland is only a path, a journey through the exile that brings us irremissibly to the frontiers of the great beyond.

It has been engraved in my mind, in my heart grieving by the hardness of life, by the incomprehension of men, by the betrayal of many who called themselves mine, by the guffaws of those who despise me and by the multitude of those who do not accept me… yes, there has been engraved, to my astonished eyes, a short way through which all of us walked hastily: they were the days of life in exile. […]

And when arriving at the end of the exile, when the days of our journey were finished, I have seen a precipice next to a border; an unfathomable Abyss, whose end could not be seen in depth, in profundity. The one who falls there, falls forever; he will never be able to get away, because the profundity of its bottom is unfathomable, because the force of its attraction, therefore, is irresistible. […]

Yes, a vertiginous race and people who ran as a crowd hastily… And when they reached the deep mouth of the open volcano of perdition, some fell into the profundity of that Abyss that swallowed them with the force of a hurricane, being lost forever, forever! and as though by surprise before my spiritual gaze.
Others, stopped suddenly; maybe they still had time to think over…

Was this second group capable of passing above the Abyss? I do not know how; because, to pass above it, wings were necessary and large, strong and wings of eagle, accustomed to flying very high and to surmount immense Abysses and great dangers… because God cannot be possessed if one does not come with eagle wings that, raising us towards Him, make us capable of living by participation on His very life, being His children, and heirs to His glory.

How then would this second group pass above without being provided with their wings…? Who would give them eagle wings to fly…? Perhaps the Sacraments… an act of pure love… a ray of light to transform them, like the good thief, making them react to the dramatic reality of their situation so they can cross over the Abyss… […]

Even though the immense majority, even after crossing over the Abyss, will have to purify themselves to be able to come to possess God. […]

So, in order to participate in God according to the model of the One who, looking at Himself in that which makes Him be God, He created us in His image and likeness to introduce us into the familial intercommunication of His own divine life; we must become like Him. […]

And this is such, that the soul, once released from the slavery of the body, penetrated by the divine thought, not being prepared and enabled to possess God, instinctively would seek its own purification, in its cry of: Who like God?! owing to the need for fulfilling the purpose for which it has been created.

Embracing lovingly that new present that the Eternal gives it by means of Purgatory, in order to be able to come to posses Him forever, become one with Christ, and This One crucified, who, through the glorious triumph of His resurrection, introduced us into the thresholds of Eternity.

Purgatory being as though the “place of lovelessness” where lie those who, for not having tried to do God’s will, went astray and, even without losing their way completely, did not respond in loving return to the infinite donations from the One who, “loving His own in the world, He loved them to the end”(Jn 13,1). […]

And the third group, which walks through the exile without soiling themselves in the quagmire of sin, who pass over it rapidly, with their eyes fixed on God, with their heart possessed by the Infinite One, with their mind enlightened by the Eternal Wisdom and with their soul taken over by the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit; in a word: with a supernatural outlook that shrouds and penetrates all the ways of their ascent towards the encounter with the Father and that makes them live a life of faith that expects tireless, driven by love, the promise of the children of God; these are the ones who pass triumphantly, above the insurmountable Abyss of perdition. […]

The Gates of Eternity opened up to the golden eagle that comes from the exile to introduce itself into the bridal chamber of the Bridegroom…! The Gates opened up which introduced it forever, forever! into the infinite joy which the Blessed possess by participation…!

What a contrast…! Among those too, who fall into the Abyss, one perceives a “forever,” without end, unfathomable, horrifying; a “forever” known only by those who, dragged into the depth of its bosom, find themselves, as though by surprise, in that endless ditch of terror… […]

Two different “forever,” to which a single way leads us: the way of Eternity. […]

I want eagle wings for me and for all of mine; a heart of Church with wings of Holy Spirit for all men on earth…! I want wings of golden eagle to bring me to the Mansions of the eternal happiness; and I seek to walk through my exile with my wings stretched out to cross gracefully the frontiers of Eternity and to save myself from the Abyss that sin opened up between God and men…! […]

How impressive, how magnificent and terrible the vision of the multitude of men of all times, running through the life’s journey in vertiginous race…!

And what a contrast at the end of the exile…! What a different end! what a different finish! consequences of a different going through the land of life… […]

What a terrible foolishness that of the confused minds, going through such a short, quick and such an uncertain path, in such an absurd and such a mistaken unconcern…! […]

Dear soul, provide yourself with eagle wings, widen the caverns of your heart, go through the path of love, faith, hope, open your eyes to the truth, so that you may be capable of stretching out your wings and getting into the blissful happiness of the joy of God!

Fragment of the video of Mother Trinidad “I have seen the Abyss being opened”, recorded on February 5th, 1989 (press PLAY):



God has given me my time, through which He asks me that degree of love, and none other, that He needs for His glory; if I lose or misuse it, the plan of God on me would not be fulfilled, and then, what will I do? (12-9-63)
If death would surprise you now, that sharp “forever” of Eternity, would it be for you the joyous eternal life in the infinite light, or would you be a prey of the infernal enemy in the despairing darkness of eternal damnation…? Try to live as you would like to die. (27-11-61)
In my swift flight, almost without treading the soil I dwell, I say to all creatures: get out of my way, I am going forth towards God! and towards my One-Trinity: receive me, Love, I am coming to You! (28-6-61)
