✞ The greatest favor that can be done for a soul, is to make her know herself.
I, your Father, am here to remind you that I love you all. Do not be afraid; my Son was the first person to be caught and called a heretic by the [fore]fathers of the Church.  So what is it that you fear? Do not be afraid. He has conquered death and I will be with you always. Why do you not understand? Because mankind does not understand that I love you all, and as Father, I feel the duty to be by your side, protecting you. As your Father, I will protect you before all those who will call you heretics. Do not worry. See now how everything will collapse. Your refuge will be ready for that time. I am arranging everything so that when Mary Most Holy tells you that it is time to go, you should go to the Blue Cross (the blessed hill of Trevignano Romano), and there you will never be touched, because I have personally sanctified that place. Do not worry; let go of human things and have faith — everything will be fulfilled according to My plan. The angels, in the place blessed by Me, will protect you and make you safe; they will make you invisible and I will not leave you lacking for anything. I am a good Father, but I am a just Father. I love you, My children, I love you so much: do not be afraid, do not fear, all that you will have will be by My grace alone. I leave you now. Your Father. Amen.
Why does the Father promise refuges for His People in this present and coming tribulation? What makes this period of distress different from the past?
The answer is the global nature of what is taking place. With a far-reaching surveillance state, that through satellites, can monitor every square inch of the earth… to the globalist agenda, which is nothing but a new form of Communism that is corralling every single person on the planet, the entire earth is under the oppression of this “beast.” And of it, St. John wrote:
Who can compare with the beast or who can fight against it? (Rev 13:4)
In the visions of the night I saw a fourth beast, terrifying, horrible, and of extraordinary strength; it had great iron teeth with which it devoured and crushed, and it trampled with its feet what was left. It differed from the beasts that preceded it. It had ten horns. (Daniel 7:7)
In other words, without God’s providence, the Church would disappear altogether. The idea of “refuges” or solitudes also appears in Tradition, beginning with the Scriptures themselves:
The king sent messengers… to prohibit holocausts, sacrifices, and libations in the sanctuary… Many of the people, those who abandoned the law, joined them and committed evil in the land. Israel was driven into hiding, wherever places of refuge could be found. (1 Macc 1:44-53)
Indeed, Early Church Father Lactantius foresaw refuges at a future time of lawlessness:
That will be the time in which righteousness shall be cast out, and innocence be hated; in which the wicked shall prey upon the good as enemies; neither law, nor order, nor military discipline shall be preserved… all things shall be confounded and mixed together against right, and against the laws of nature. Thus the earth shall be laid waste, as though by one common robbery. When these things shall so happen, then the righteous and the followers of truth shall separate themselves from the wicked, and flee into solitudes. —Lactantius, The Divine Institutes, Book VII, Ch. 17
Of course, some might argue that hiding is different than God’s provision of an actual refuge. However, St. Francis de Sales affirms that there will be providential places of protection during the persecutions of Antichrist:
The revolt [revolution] and separation must come…the Sacrifice shall cease and…the Son of Man shall hardly find faith on earth… All these passages are understood of the affliction which Antichrist shall cause in the Church… But the Church… shall not fail, and shall be fed and preserved amidst the deserts and solitudes to which She shall retire, as the Scripture says, (Apoc. Ch. 12). —St. Francis de Sales, The Mission of the Church, ch. X, n.5
The woman was given the two wings of the great eagle, so that she could fly to her place in the desert, where, far from the serpent, she was taken care of for a year, two years, and a half-year. (Revelation 12:14)
The pre-eminent place of refuge, given to us by God, is in the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God. —Our Lady of Fatima, June 13, 1917, The Revelation of the Two Hearts in Modern Times, www.ewtn.com
My Mother is Noah’s Ark… —Jesus to Elizabeth Kindelmann, The Flame of Love, p. 109; Imprimatur from Archbishop Charles Chaput
And Our Lady is the icon and model of living in the Divine Will through her own fiat, and the one entrusted to lead us into this Kingdom of the Divine Will. 
The divine justice imposes chastisements, but neither these nor [God’s] enemies get close to those souls who live in the Divine Will… Know that I will have regard for the souls who live in My Will, and for the places where these souls reside… I place the souls who live completely in My Will on earth, in the same condition as the blessed [in Heaven]. Therefore, live in My Will and fear nothing. —Jesus to Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, Volume 11, May 18, 1915
