✞ The virtue of the Cross. Stripping oneself of one’s own will.
Volume 2 — Entry 23
My daughter, thank you for having bent your knees. I ask my favored sons [priests], my apostles to pray for the Church because the Devil is weaving a very strong web, where, because of priests, bishops and cardinals who no longer fear God, what does not come from Heaven is exalted, while those who are obedient to the Word are driven away from My house. Pray for Italy, poor Italy, where sin and transhumanism have taken hold. Beloved children, see the times foretold: they are upon you, but for those who are faithful, the Holy Spirit will descend so that they would be protected and sheltered. Be united in peace. Now you have my blessing in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
