“My dear children, also today I wish to invite you to live more for “the Heaven things”, because many of you live in sadness and anguish and don’t feel loved and I come and bring My maternal love. My children, when you’re sad I too suffer with you because you don’t succeed yet to immerse yourselves in an abandonment to My Son Jesus and you’re bewildered, losing the path, but when you rejoice, I too rejoice with you! If you pray, My children, and you’re constant in prayer, you’ll be able to find Peace, through the action of the Holy Spirit.My children, I want to help you find again that love which you don’t succeed to feel any more; it’s necessary to take a holiness path, leaving away everything that doesn’t allow you to see and to feel His love.My children, if you decide to go along a life of humility, of love of one’s neighbour and live in truth, you’ll be able to call yourselves “the children of Light”.My children, I wish that each one of you to become My Apostle, so that I may act in you to show you that path which you don’t succeed to walk down.Yes, I wish you to become My Apostles, those who decide to testify and to be the witnesses of My Son’s love.Don’t be afraid to testify, because I’ll be with you! My Son Jesus gives you the grace of letting Me come among you not to obtain happiness on this earth, but He wants to give you eternal happiness because happiness isn’t of this earth.Pray, pray, pray, so that you may receive the Peace gift and I come and give you the Peace that every day My Son Jesus gives to humanity.Pray for My Pastor sons, for the consecrated ones, so that they be always supported by your prayers.Many are My consecrated sons who suffer and who need help. I’m inviting you to pray on them, without judging, so that they always remain faithful to God’s call.Pray, pray, pray for the projects that God has for each one of you. Thank you for responding to My call. I’m blessing you all! “
- This Message is a lesson of consolation, of “comfort” addressed to us who are men of “little faith” in divine love: “…many of you live in sadness and anguish and don’t feel loved and I come to bring My maternal love. “..
- Between a way in the manner of St. John of the Cross, we must in reality prefer the things of Heaven to those of the earth.
- Personal sanctification is necessary; it is also a preliminary to apostolic life.
- Once again, Mary demands the apostolic courage, the clear and firm testimony (§6 e7). In the general context of the Messages, we can say: “The Holy Virgin is preparing Her army for the great events of tomorrow”.
Introduction:”… today I wish to invite you to live more for “the Heaven things””.
In modern religion the celestial dimension is often forgotten. We can meditate Col 3, 2: “Seek the things that are above……Mind the things that are above, not the things that are on earth.”
1 “My children, when you’re sad, I too suffer with you …”
2 “…but when you rejoice, I too rejoice with you!”.
The theme of mutual comfort is very important in the early years of the Church’s history. The letters of the bishops like Ignatius of Antioch are often the vector of the mutual sympathy. Saint Paul sets an example of it. See the beginning of the second letter to the Corinthians (2 Co 1, 3-7).
4 “….it’s necessary to take a holiness path, leaving away everything that doesn’t allow to see and to feel His love.”
We are completely immersed in asceticism and in the most classical mysticism, that of the imitation of Jesus Christ, of St. Ignatius, of the teachers of the Carmelite school!
5 “My children, if you decide to go along a life of humility, of love of one’s neighbour and live in truth, you’ll be able to call yourselves “ the children of Light”.”
“Mary’s pilgrims” are modern and joyful but, for one part, they are not of the world (Jn 17, 14). Our astuteness of “Children of Light” is to live in the world, not according to the world (Lk 16: 8).
6“My children, I wish that each one of you to become My Apostle…”
7“Yes, I wish you to become My Apostles, those who decide to testify and to be the witnesses of My Son’s love. Don’t be afraid to testify, because I’ll be with you”.
A great difficulty in missionary perseverance is the terrible feeling of being alone, abandoned by God, who seems to be silent and do nothing. We must overcome this horrible temptation with the assurance of the word of Jesus, the last of the Gospel of Matthew: “I am with you all days, even unto the consummation of the world”. (Mt 28:20). To progress in this way that is above nature, we must evangelize, evangelize with stubbornness! The Gospel is more an experience than a doctrine!(by Father M.F.)
