✞ The virtue of the Cross. Stripping oneself of one’s own will.
Volume 2 — Entry 23
Dear children, thank you for having responded to my call in your hearts. Children, how beautiful you are when you kneel in prayer. Listen to what I have to tell you: do not be distracted regarding my messages, remember that they are for the salvation of humanity. You have eyes to see, but you do not see, ears to hear and you do not hear. My children, pray for France: it will suffer much. Convert! Now I leave you with my maternal blessing, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
