✞ The virtue of the Cross. Stripping oneself of one’s own will.
Volume 2 — Entry 23
I saw Mother: she was dressed in white, on her head was the crown of twelve stars. She had a blue mantle that also covered her head and was held at her neck by a brooch. Mother had her arms open in a sign of welcome and on her chest was a beating heart of flesh crowned with thorns. Mother’s bare feet were placed on the globe, around which was the ancient enemy in the form of a snake that was writhing, but Mother was holding him down, crushing his head with her right foot. May Jesus Christ be praised…
My dear children, I love you and thank you that you have responded to this call of mine. My children, I have been coming among you for a long time, but you do not always listen to me: you continue to turn to sorcerers and fortune-tellers, you continue to run after the falsehoods and idols of this world. My children, when will you understand that only God heals the body and the soul, only He gives peace, only He gives love?
My children, say your “yes”: say it now. Children, do not delay any longer, do not waste time — there is no more time for waiting, no more time for having doubts. Pray children, pray; hard times await you; pray in order to be strong when the Storm comes. Entrust yourselves to the Lord, trust in Him, turn to Him, give Him your whole life, give Him the good and the bad, the beautiful and the ugly, the joy and the pain, give Him your whole self, give Him your heart, your love and He will give you a thousand times more. Invoke Him and pray to Him; love Him children, love Him, entrust yourselves to Him.
Now I give you my holy blessing. Thank you for having hastened to me.
|1||Today, sorcery has taken on many forms, as we have witnessed a veritable explosion in the occult, witchcraft, astrology, and other forms of pantheism (cf. The New Paganism – Part II). Reiki, for example, is another new age practice that many seek out — channeling “energy” instead of the Holy Spirit, or conflating the two. In the Book of Revelation, we read how in the last days, people refuse to repent of these idols: “The rest of the human race, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, to give up the worship of demons and idols made from gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk. Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic potions, their unchastity, or their robberies” (Rev 9:20-21). Note that in Rev 18:23, the Greek word for “sorcery” or “magic potions” is φαρμακείᾳ (pharmakeia) — “the use of medicine, drugs or spells.” The word we use today for these magic potions or “medicines” is pharmaceuticals. Clearly, “vaccines” have become an idol for many, a “magic potion” that they are pursuing, even at the cost of their freedom. When we close our churches to the Eucharist but open our halls to become “vaccine clinics”, then you know that “sorcery”, like the “smoke of Satan” has even seeped into the Church.
