The words God speaks to the soul of Mother Trinidad are – using the words of the prophet Jeremiah – “as if fire is burning in my heart, imprisoned in my bones.” Therefore, if we read them with a simple soul and open spirit these words will also light in our souls the fire of God’s love. A fire urging us to love God and His merciful plans for man.

“The abyss calls to the Abyss, in the roar of waters…” What is the original experience that lies behind this communication from God to Mother Trinidad, which makes her exclaim those very words inspired by God and uttered by the mouth of the Psalmist? Find it out in this beautiful and original piece of writing that we offer you for the enjoyment and nourishment of your soul.

“The abyss calls to the Abyss”

 

Oh, Love…! “The abyss calls to the Abyss”; this is the only explanation for the contemptible abyss of my misery being able to seize and captivate the immeasurable and infinitely loving Abyss of God’s whole being manifesting itself in mercy.

All Your infinitely majestic being, Your awe-inspiring and inexhaustibly unending being, hurls itself upon the lowly creature, manifesting itself as mercy….

What an incomprehensible contrast exists between the infinite Abyss of Your merciful being and the almost infinite abyss of my misery, of this being created by You, my Uncreated One, this being who has rebelled against Your very infinite being, saying to You: “I will not serve You…!”

Oh, incomprehensible incomprehension for our mind accustomed to selfishness, that of seeing the whole being of the Immense One kissing, enfolding, penetrating, bedecking and ennobling that very creature who, as expression and manifestation of all its misery, says to the thrice-holy Being: “I will not serve You…!”!

Madness and love of Infinite Mercy! who, in pouring Himself over His creatures, so profusely wanted to manifest Himself over them, and so lovingly, that “the Word became flesh,” in order to be able to show Himself to us like in cataracts of being through His human nature bursting forth in a blood-stained explosion of mercy and forgiveness.

God is love through His being; He is Himself the Being who, in being Himself, is; and He is Himself the Infinite One through an infinite infinitude of perfections and attributes, in one only, silent, most simple and unalloyed perfection that bursts forth into Trinity of Persons.

And God, being Himself for Himself the subsistent and sufficient Being, who contains in Himself and for Himself all the perfection that He needs in His infinitude, on wanting to lovingly manifest Himself in cataracts of being over His creature, is Himself mercy.

God cannot be mercy toward Himself, because this attribute is the infinite Abyss of the loving being of God that is poured out over misery.

God, being Himself the thrice-holy Being, the Untouchable One, the quintessential Virginity, can bear no stain in Him, and therefore, no misery; and thus, He cannot be mercy toward Himself.

There is no mercy where there is no misery. When the Abyss of God’s goodness unites with the abyss of our misery, God manifests Himself then as infinite mercy…. For God so loved man, so wonderfully, that His whole being, on being outpoured on man, burst forth into one attribute that is called: “Mercy”.

Therefore, the attribute in God that is most proper to us humans is mercy; but since in God there are no parts, it is the entirety of Divine Life which, outpoured in its One Trinity upon His creature, manifests itself as good love of benevolence for man; and, when it is poured directly over the misery of man, it is known as “Mercy”.

And so God is Himself in Himself, in His being, an attribute that, while being Himself so in Himself, He is Himself not toward Himself as He is in the rest of other attributes. He is the Being who, in infinite infinitude of perfections and attributes, is Himself all and totally for Himself, the supreme and complete Perfection in which the three divine Persons rejoice, delight and savour Themselves; to such an extent, that They are Themselves infinite happiness for They are Themselves the subsistent Being that contains in Himself His very inexaustible sufficiency of happiness and of being.

And that Being, who needs nothing and no one, when manifesting Himself in cataracts of love toward misery, is known as “Mercy”. This is the attribute of mercy: All the infinite love of the Good One being poured out upon His creature….

Love…! Why do you love me so much…? Because the abyss of my misery seized, attracted and captivated the Good One in the measureless majesty of His being….

And, if this were not enough, that very same uncreated Being, untouchable, unchangeable, most sufficient, the supreme perfection, becomes man so that He can burst forth into blood, into blood-stained expression of His merciful love for us.

And, after contemplating Infinite Wisdom mercifully bursting forth on the cross, could we ever doubt the love God has for us…? Our doubt, when it is present, points to our lack of knowledge of God.

We need to immerse ourselves intensely and deeply into that knowledge of God’s intimate life, of the Being bursting into being, into Persons, so that we can manage to glimpse something of what it means God’s mercy for man.

Yes, all of God’s being is telling you, bursting into blood with inexpressible groans: “Son, give me your heart….”

Ah, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, there is still time…! Listen to this word that is being spelled out to you in the very centre of your soul, only for you, in the consubstantial embrace of my Trinity-Love, telling you at every moment what you are to do: “Daughter, forget your people and your father’s house, and the King will fall in love with your beauty….” “Have I been with you for so long a time,” in the intimacy of a Spouse, a brother and a friend, in the silence of the Tabernacle and in the innermost part of your soul, asking for your heart, your miserable heart, so as to transform it into my merciful love, “and you still don’t know me” …?!

Don’t ever forget that “the abyss calls to the Abyss” and that “the greater the misery, the greater the mercy.”

Hope for everything from Love; don’t settle for being one among many. Specifically you, who are drowned in and crushed by the abyss of your misery, go deep and immerse yourself in the Abyss of God’s whole being manifesting itself as mercy….

Love…! Love…! The Love you have for me crushes me as I face the terrible abyss of my misery… and I can do nothing but hope that the merciful love of Your infinite being will carry out its work of love in me.
