Messages of Mary to Luz de Maria for Holy Thursday/Good Friday

GOOD FRIDAY APRIL 7, 2023 (Official Translation)


Dearly beloved children of My Heart:

MY SON CARRIES A WOODEN CROSS; IT IS HEAVIER BECAUSE IT

CONTAINS THE SINS OF ALL HUMANITY...

OH, GOOD FRIDAY WHEN MY DIVINE SON SUFFERED THE

INDESCRIBABLE!

His Divine Body suffered torture and in every act of torture He forgave – not only those who were scourging or beating Him or spitting upon His divine Face, but He prayed for those who were humiliating Him.

He prayed for those who on Palm Sunday cheered Him and insulted Him on the way to Calvary, who called Him “Beelzebub” and shouted aloud: “Crucify Him!” In their works and actions, human beings share this behavior on the part of those who make someone feel good through words of flattery, but who, when later that brother annoys them for some reason, are worse than those who on Palm Sunday went from cheering Him to asking for My Divine Son’s death on the Cross.

This, beloved children, is a great and grave sin, because when envy or jealousy take hold of a human being, it is difficult for them to stop until they feel that they have poured out their whole malaise – changed into poison – upon their brother.

AS MY SON WAS CRUCIFIED, SO THAT CRUCIFIXION IS CONSTANTLY REPEATED IN HUMAN BEINGS WHO SUFFER ALL KINDS OF PAIN.

Everything is based on the love that My divine Son pours out upon you. The Law is Divine Love and My children must strive for that love to be the basis on which to build their works and actions.

ON A TREE MY SON SUFFERED UNTO DEATH, ALTHOUGH DEATH DID NOT DEFEAT HIM, BUT HE DEFEATED DEATH.

Beloved children, it is necessary that you remember the words of My Divine Son on the Cross:

"Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do" (Lk. 23:34). This is today’s humanity: it is for each one of you that My divine Son exclaimed "Father, forgive them." Not valuing the gift of life, not taking responsibility for your actions – this is how you live, worshiping evil and despising the good – this is how you live with your betrayals, how you live without learning from your falls; you live this way and more. For you, children, My Divine Son exclaimed: "... because they know not what they do.”

"Woman, behold thy son" ... (Jn. 19:26-27) How many mothers are not mothers by their own decision?

How many children reject their mothers in their old age? How many mothers are mistreated by their children, and how many sons show pity for their mothers? How many spiritual mothers do I see loving a spiritual child of theirs until death? Such pure love – that love that gives its life for a child, in this way and to infinity – is the love of My Son for each one of you.

"Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise." (Lk. 23:43) The great sign of Divine Mercy: Whoever repents at the last instant, whoever recognizes Him as King of Heaven and Earth, gains Heaven. A great lesson, children! However, you do not know if you will all have the great opportunity at the final moment to be like the one you know as the penitent thief. Do not wait, My children: at this moment the Father's arm has fallen and the cup is almost empty. Repent, convert and cry out for mercy!

"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (Mt. 27:46) Humanity is far from My divine Son, from this Mother and from Heaven’s assistance for you. In trials, they turn to My divine Son, whom they did not know before, and yet after knowing Him, they return to their old life. This is the time for you to say: not my will, but thine be done. (Lk. 22:42).

“I thirst"(Jn. 19:28) My divine Son thirsts for souls, souls that My divine Son wishes to recover, especially in this generation: souls with Marian strength, prayerful strength, the strength of faith with which My children will return the Earth to its Creator. Give My divine Son pure souls to drink, souls that want to serve fraternally: believing souls, holy souls.

“It is consummated” (Jn. 19:30) My Son fulfilled His Father's Will in everything until His death on the Cross. He rose again on the third day and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

"Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit." (Lk. 23:46) My divine Son surrenders Himself to the Father and breathes out His Spirit.... This is the obedience that is so indispensable for the children of My divine Son. This is the obedience that you do not know how to maintain because you do not know how to love correctly. This is the obedience that you keep locked away because it is not convenient for you to submit to the Divine Will, and this because the human ego continues to take precedence over the Will of God in the human creature.


I call you to fast, if your health allows it. I invite you to participate in the liturgy of adoration of the Holy Cross. Pray the Creed and participate in the Way of the Cross.


ACCOMPANY MY DIVINE SON; ACCOMPANY HIM, ADORE HIM FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT ADORE HIM.

Beloved children of My Heart, I bless you.

COMMENTARY OF LUZ DE MARIA

Brothers, I invite you to pray:

May your Five Wounds be engraved on my heart so that I may not offend you, may Your Crown of Thorns seal my thoughts, may the nails of Thy hands stop the evil that mine may want to cause, may the nails of Thy feet hold back mine, in order for my whole being to be subject to You, so that I may find no contentment, should I wish to flee from Your side.

Soul of Christ, sanctify me*

Body of Christ, save me

Blood of Christ, inebriate me

Water from Christ’s side, wash me

Passion of Christ, strengthen me

O good Jesus, hear me

Within Your wounds hide me

Suffer me not to be separated from You

From the malicious enemy defend me

In the hour of my death call me

And bid me come to You

That I may praise You with Your saints and with Your angels

Forever and ever


Amen.



* This is a prayer by St. Ignatius of Loyola known as the “Anima Christi” (“Soul of Christ”).

HOLY THURSDAY APRIL 6, 2023


(Official Translation)

Beloved children of My Immaculate Heart:

DIVINE LOVE SHOWS ITS OBEDIENCE...

This is the day of the great lesson about love for one's neighbor: an experiential love, a love born in actions toward others, a love that does not hold back in giving itself to those in need, a love that My children embody within themselves in order to work and act in the likeness of My Son. Who will refuse love for the needy, the love that helps, that goes out to meet, that alleviates pain, that gives itself for one’s brother and helps him to carry his daily cross, the love that says “yes” when it is within its reach and shares words of help, of closeness, of fraternity?

WITH HIS “YES” TO THE FATHER, MY DIVINE SON GAVE HIMSELF FOR

THE SINS OF HUMANITY AND BORE THEM.

It is a great mystery of love that is commemorated this Holy Thursday; without regard for whom, how or when, love is the greatest reality in the midst of the crosses of each one of My children. In the washing of feet, My divine Son shows you what it is to become small in order that your loved ones would then be living testimonies of Divine Love. Beloved children:

MY DIVINE SON GIVES YOU THE TESTIMONY OF HIS LOVE, A LOVE OF RENUNCIATION.

Human beings must renounce what they want, their preferences. Whoever renounces their tastes and human desires enters into the fullness of love: the more you give yourself to your brothers and sisters, the greater you are.

The love that My Divine Son teaches is the love of sharing and of helping one’s brother to carry his cross when it is too heavy, is loving one's neighbor at all times and even more so when they are suffering. Love means freedom for one’s neighbor to choose and to say when to stop, when they wish for help or the love that is offered to them. THEREFORE, PRAY, MY CHILDREN! THE MOMENT WILL COME WHEN THE HEART OF STONE WILL BREAK AND LOVE. Beloved children of My Heart:

My divine Son gives Himself to His beloved apostles, thereby giving birth to the institution of the Holy Priesthood, as a remembrance of His atonement, not only for the apostles, but so that in this present time each one of His children may participate in this memorable Holy Supper.


“Jesus took bread, and blessed, and broke: and gave to his disciples, and said: Take ye, and eat. This is my body. And taking the chalice, he gave thanks, and gave to them, saying: Drink ye all of this. For this is my blood of the new testament, which shall be shed for many unto remission of sins.” (Mt. 26:26-28)

Beloved children:

THIS HOLY SUPPER IS CELEBRATED WITH VERY GREAT SOLEMNITY FOR THE SACRAMENT OF THE EUCHARIST, BUT AT THE SAME TIME WITH FEELINGS OF SADNESS FOR THE IMPRISONMENT OF MY DIVINE SON. What does a mother say to her son before leaving?

We look into each other's eyes and speak to each other without words. Fused together in the Father’s Will, our hearts embrace and, more than at any other time, become one. We embrace and live events in the space of a moment that will last until the end of time. With that embrace, souls will be encouraged in their moments of suffering, of joy, of hope, of charity, and of faith.

Nothing remains without fruit: My blessing to My Divine Son should be repeated by mothers to their children, and My blessing carries at the same time the blessing of Joseph, His putative Father. My divine Son departs, but I am not alone: I go with Him mystically, I share His Self-giving so that later He may give Me to humanity, thereby becoming the Mother of Humanity. Beloved children, fulfill the Fourth Commandment; parents, love your children. Keep in mind the Law of Love: love one another as I have loved you (see Jn.13:34-38). I carry you in My Maternal Heart.

COMMENTARY OF LUZ DE MARIA

Brothers and sisters:

United in infinite love, let us pray with our hearts:

Courageous Mother, humble as a little flower of the field, you hide within You the Father's favorite rose, upon whom He has looked to accomplish His Will out of love.

Today I accompany you at every moment; You appear to be far from Your Son, but you are closer than any creature can imagine, since you live fused to Him in a single heart.

Coredemptrix, Sorrowful Mother, Your suffering makes me faint. You looked upon me, surrendering the one to whom You gave birth. How can I not love You! How can I not thank You! How can I not praise You if You have given Your most holy Son so that I might be free! I know well that there is no son without a mother; Blessed Heart, Virgin Most Pure, the Father’s Chosen, I want to be at Your side, not so that You may clasp me to Your bosom, but to clasp You to mine, which, though unworthy of You, acknowledges You as Queen. Today I wish to be the one for whom You wait to keep You company, the one who approaches your Son in repentance and acknowledges Him as Lord and Master of his life.

As You love Him, help me to love Him, that I may not be the torturer who scourges Your beloved Son.

Give me Your love in order to love Him, give me Your hands to wipe His divine Face, give me, Mother, Your eyes to see as He sees, give me Your faith to deny Him no more.

Mystical Rose, Help of Christians, You are the essence of love, who today in front of me says: "Look, this is My Son: I give Him up for you –

this is how I love you, this is how I love you, with My Son’s own love; this is how we love you.” Let us pray:

I am not moved, my God, to love You by the heaven You have promised me, nor is it the hell that I so dread that moves me to stop offending You because of it.

You move me, Lord! It moves me to see You nailed to a cross and mocked, I am moved by the sight of your wounded body, I am moved by the affronts against You and by your death.

Ultimately, it is your love that moves me, and in such a way, that even if there were no heaven, I would love You, and even if there were no hell, I would fear You.

You do not have to give me anything for me to love you, For even if I did not hope for what I hope for, I would love you just as I love you.

(Sonnet to Christ Crucified, Anonymous Spanish, formerly attributed to St. Teresa of Avila)
