This afternoon Mother appeared all dressed in white. The edges of her dress were golden. Mother was wrapped in a large, very delicate blue mantle that also covered her head. On her head was a crown of twelve stars. Mother had her hands folded in prayer and in her hands was a long white holy rosary, as if made out of light, that went down almost to her feet. Her feet were bare and were placed on the world. On the world, scenes of wars and violence could be seen. The world seemed to be spinning fast, and the scenes followed one after the other. May Jesus Christ be praised…
Dear children, thank you that today you are again here in my blessed woods to welcome me and to respond to this call of mine. My children, today I am here again to ask you for prayer: prayer for the Vicar of Christ and for my beloved Church. Pray, little children, pray so that the true faith would not be lost. Children, the world is increasingly in the grip of the forces of evil, and more and more people are distancing themselves from the Church, because they are confused by what is being spread incorrectly. My children, the Church needs prayer; my chosen and favored sons [priests] need to be supported with prayer. Pray, children, and do not judge: judgment does not belong to you but to God, who is the only judge of everything and everyone. Dearly beloved children, once again I ask you to pray the Holy Rosary every day, to go to church every day and bend your knees before my son, Jesus. My son is alive and true in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. Pause in front of Him, pause in silence; God knows each one of you and knows what you need: do not waste words but let Him speak and listen [to Him].
Then Mother asked me to pray with her. After praying I entrusted to her all those who had commended themselves to my prayers. Then Mother resumed:
Little children, I ask you to continue to form prayer Cenacles. Perfume your houses with prayer; learn to bless and not to curse.
Finally she blessed everyone.
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Commentary from Mark Mallett
Before posting the message above, which I had not read until today, I was inspired to post some comments on Facebook last night, which I incorporate below:
Few moral statements by Jesus are as clear as this: “Stop judging” (Matt 7:1). We can and must judge objective words, statements, actions, etc. in and of themselves. But to judge the heart and motives is another matter. Many Catholics are eager to make declarations regarding the motives of their priests, bishops and pope. Jesus will not judge us for their actions but how we judged theirs.
Yes, many are frustrated with their shepherds, especially regarding the confusion that is spreading throughout the Church. But this does not justify ourselves entering into, not only sin, but becoming a terrible witness to others on social media, in the workplace, etc. The Catechism of the Catholic Church has some beautiful wisdom that we are morally bound to follow:
Respect for the reputation of persons forbids every attitude and word likely to cause them unjust injury. He becomes guilty:
– of rash judgment who, even tacitly, assumes as true, without sufficient foundation, the moral fault of a neighbor;
– of detraction who, without objectively valid reason, discloses another’s faults and failings to persons who did not know them;
– of calumny who, by remarks contrary to the truth, harms the reputation of others and gives occasion for false judgments concerning them.
To avoid rash judgment, everyone should be careful to interpret insofar as possible his neighbor’s thoughts, words, and deeds in a favorable way:
Every good Christian ought to be more ready to give a favorable interpretation to another’s statement than to condemn it. But if he cannot do so, let him ask how the other understands it. And if the latter understands it badly, let the former correct him with love. If that does not suffice, let the Christian try all suitable ways to bring the other to a correct interpretation so that he may be saved. (CCC, nos. 2477-2478)
