My dear children, thank you for having responded to my call in your hearts. My beloved children, today my Son is with you, in agony, but full of love for everyone. My children, many ask for signs, but what signs do you want when from the mouth of some comes smoke and not the word of God? Furthermore, you ask and ask without ever giving thanks for all that you have. Pray for the Church that is tasting its martyrdom: pray, my children, because the world is enveloped by darkness and you must be recognizable as shining lights, going forward in the truth of God’s word. My children, you are not in a time where you are allowed to lose yourselves in frivolous things, for the Son of Man is going to be with you.* I ask you to carry your cross with love through your purification on earth: if you carry it with joy you will have great rewards, but if you carry it with despair you will not able to experience the promised joy. Pray concerning volcanoes…
Now I leave you with my maternal blessing in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
*Concerning times and seasons, brothers, you have no need for anything to be written to you. For you yourselves know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief at night. When people are saying, “Peace and security,” then sudden disaster comes upon them, like labor pains upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you, brothers, are not in darkness, for that day to overtake you like a thief. For all of you are children of the light and children of the day. We are not of the night or of darkness. Therefore, let us not sleep as the rest do, but let us stay alert and sober. Those who sleep go to sleep at night, and those who are drunk get drunk at night. But since we are of the day, let us be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love and the helmet that is hope for salvation. For God did not destine us for wrath, but to gain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep we may live together with him. Therefore, encourage one another and build one another up, as indeed you do. (1 Thess 5:1-11)
For as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. In [those] days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day that Noah entered the ark. They did not know until the flood came and carried them all away. So will it be [also] at the coming of the Son of Man. (Matt 24:37-39)
|↑1||Our Lord Jesus took upon Himself all the sins of the world from the beginning of time to the end of the world. As such, Our Lady speaks of the suffering of Jesus embraced upon the Cross that transected time. Many mystics throughout the centuries have seen and experienced this suffering of Christ, most notably, Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, in order that they could make reparation for the sins of mankind. As St. Paul said, “Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ on behalf of his body, which is the Church…” (Col 1:24)|
