✞ The virtue of the Cross. Stripping oneself of one’s own will.
Volume 2 — Entry 23
Dear children, peace. I invite you to pray for peace. Pray with confidence. Pray with a repentant heart. Humanity is crying out for help, justice and peace but forgets to pray. Faith needs to be nourished with prayer. Therefore, do not stop praying. I also invite you to pray for my favored sons, the priests. Families have been falling apart to a worrying extent. Pray and be vigilant. They are growing distant because they have turned away from the life of prayer. Plant love in your homes: only love builds. Teach your children to love God. I am the Mystical Rose, Queen of Peace. With love I bless you.
