✞ Threat of chastisements for Rome.
Volume 2 — Entry 90
Dear children, thank you that this evening you are again here in my blessed woods to welcome me and to respond to this call of mine. Beloved children, if I am still here among you it is by the immense Mercy of God. I am here to save you and to bring you a message of hope. Beloved children, this evening I come to you as the Queen of heaven and earth, I come to you as the Mother of Mercy, I come to you as the Mother of Divine Love, but above all I come to you as the Mother of infinite love. Dearly beloved children, this evening I again come to ask for prayer: prayer for my beloved Church. I come to ask for prayer for my chosen and favored sons [priests] who so often make me suffer. Children, pray much for your diocese, pray for the Holy Spirit to shower you with grace. Children, the Church is besieged and under the smoke of the enemy: she is shrouded by the smoke of Satan. Alas, I weep, I weep for all those chosen and favored sons of mine who, with their bad example, are separating so many of my children from the Church.
Beloved children, I love you immensely; I love you, little children, stretch out your hands to me and let us walk together. Children, the way that leads to holiness is not easy, it is uphill, and you will fall many times, but do not fear: grasp my hands and get up again, I am here! Give me your hands and open your hearts to me. Children, once more I want you all to consecrate yourselves to my Immaculate Heart. Children, today I pass among you, I touch you, I heal your hearts and your souls.
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
