I saw Mother; she was all dressed in white. On her head she had a delicate veil studded with gold dots and the crown of a queen, on her shoulders she had a large white mantle going down to her bare feet that were resting on the world. Mother was holding a scroll in her right hand, which she then opened, holding it with both hands. May Jesus Christ be praised…
Here I am for you, my children; I am the Queen and Mother of all peoples, I come to show you the way that leads to my and your beloved Jesus; I come to take you by the hand and to guide you along the way. My children, I am the door — the means, not the end: I lead you to the Lord, I love you and want you all to be saved. Only the Lord saves, edifies, heals; only in Him is there true life! My children, I love you: Teach children to pray — they are the future. Create more and more cenacles of prayer; may every home be perfumed with prayer.
My children, do not be discouraged in moments of pain and trial: turn to the Lord and He will not delay in coming to your aid. I love you immensely, my children. Now I give you my holy blessing. Thank you for having hastened to me.
All that you succeed in doing to support the family
is destined to have an effectiveness that goes beyond its own sphere
and reaches other people, too, and has an effect on society.
The future of the world and of the Church passes through the family.
—ST. JOHN PAUL II, Familiaris Consortio, n. 75
