This evening Mother appeared as the Mother of Zaro. She had a white dress and a blue mantle that enveloped her and also covered her head. Mother had her arms open in a sign of welcome. In her right hand was a long white holy rosary of light, and from her hands rays of light went out that illuminated the entire wood.
Mother had a heart of roses on her chest and a rose on each foot. Her feet were bare and were placed on a gushing stream. Mother had a very beautiful smile.
May Jesus Christ be praised
"My dear children, thank you that this evening you are again here in my blessed woods on this day so dear to me and you.[*]
My beloved children, I love you, I love you immensely, and if I am still here among you, it is because of the immense love that my Son has for each of you. Yes children, my Son loves you, he loves you and wants you all to convert.
My children, this evening I touch each one of you and bestow many graces. I am here to fill you with graces.
My children, hard times await you, but do not fear. Be children of light; arm yourselves with the armor of prayer and the sacraments. Go to church every day and pray that it would remain united. Pray much for the Church and especially for the Vicar of Christ: great tasks await him.
Children, I ask you once again to form prayer Cenacles. The cenacles are important; do formation, draw from the source of Mother Church, in this way each one of you will become a living cell. Be alive; do not live in hiding only in order not to take on responsibilities, but be living cells. Each of you must be a true apostle and warrior of my Son!
Children, my Son needs soldiers, soldiers who love the cross and who put him in the first place in their lives. Pray, little children, hold the holy rosary tightly in your hands and do not fear.
I love you children, I love you immensely."
Then a light breeze opened Mother's mantle, she spread her arms and turned them towards the pilgrims. It was as if trails of light came out from her hands that illuminated everyone.
Then I prayed with her.
Finally she blessed first the priests present at the site and then all the pilgrims. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
