I Who Am speak of Saint Katherine of Alexandria

Saint Katherine of Alexandria, Eternal Virgin Spouse of Eric the Larimar King.

Behold, I Who Am Am here to speak of Saint Katherine of Alexandria. It has been said in the previous post that Eric was given the choice: He could have chosen to go to heaven on Friday, January 31, 2020, whereupon he would enter into the eternal spiritual embrace of his appointed espoused, Katherine of Alexandria, and rule forever over the British Isles as his eternal dominion that he is to rule with her as King and Queen forever.

But the other choice was to give Me, His Lord and Master, another 49 years of service to Me in My vineyard of labor on the earth. And then, as a reward for his service, I agreed to double his lands and richly reward him. But he would be required to keep his espousal vows to Katherine forever. He could not go after any other woman for all eternity.

And which choice did Eric take, you wonder? He chose to give Me the additional 49 years. But We were merely testing the Larimar King. We are God. And We cannot retract Our promises. For We are not a man that We change Our mind.

Hence, the Truth remains and is unchangeable. Eric leaves this world and is brought to My Kingdom on Friday, January 31, 2020. And all his belongings, along with his body, he is to leave behind. For Eric is to pass beyond the veil and never return until the Resurrection of all Saints.

Hence, he is going to his Beloved. And this path cannot be thwarted. And already he is in the spiritual embrace of that ancient saint, whom he can never touch, for she is a consecrated virgin of the Lord Jesus Christ. Now, let us answer some questions. O’ Larimar King, what is on your mind?

Lord, it was promised that my lands would be doubled if I took the pathway to remain in this world for 49 years. Do I keep that reward, even though it was just a test and not a real granted choice? For I did in fact choose the path whereby my lands would be doubled.

Eric, do you not possess the Capital City of Ireland? Yes, My Master. And what is it always doing? It is always Dublin.

OK, seriously, Eric, we do have a new reward for you for your choice to remain in this world to serve us here even though you shall not, for God has decreed that you are to be with your espoused wife, Katherine of Alexandria. And that is why your path to the Kingdom cannot be changed. For you have defeated the devil. But the red dragon will continue to strike at your heel until your removal from this world.

And so, what reward do you believe you can receive from Us, O’ Larimar King? What in that replica of the Earth would you want added to your eternal lands? What lands would you take, if you could. And don’t say Israel, for that already belongs to Lazurite, who is a Jewish convert to Catholicism. For only a Jew or someone descended from the Jews is entitled to possess and rule over Israel (Deuteronomy 17:15). And you are no such man, O’ Larimar King. But Lazurite is. And he is elected by Me to rule as eternal King over the entire Kingdom of Israel, which includes all of the Levant, and all the lands from Nile to the Euphrates, and from the island of Cyprus to the ends of the Arabian Peninsula, and beyond, to the islands of Socotra. Amen.

And you have been given the entire Archipelago of the British Isles. Your Kingdom is strategic, modest, and powerful. But you wish for additional lands? Name the lands, and then We, the Lord and all His Hosts, will render you an answer to your request.

Lord, I know that there is this thing called global warming. And it is making the Northern Sea Routes through the Arctic Ocean a possibility. Whoever possesses Greenland will have a lucrative position in servicing the ships passing through the Northwest Passage, that is to go from Baffin Bay through the Canadian Arctic, to Alaska and the Bering Strait. Thus, Greenland would be the land I would choose to add to My Kingdom. It is right now a sparsely populated island mostly covered by glaciers, but in the near future, it will become a popular and valuable place of real estate. So what saith Thou to my request, O’ Lord? Do I get it, or does it remain a possession of whoever owns Denmark?

You are shrewd and you are wise, O’ Larimar King. Yes, it is yours. You have that icebox of an island as your possession now. It was said earlier that your lands could not be added to. But this is an exception, since you agreed to do us a service, which involved great sacrifice on your part, even though it was all just a test. Hence, now we shall return to list all the lands of your Kingdom. And this list is now final, O’ Larimar King:

  1. Great Britain
  2. Ireland
  3. The Isle of Man
  4. The Scilly Isles
  5. The Channel Islands
  6. The Outer Hebrides
  7. The Orkney Islands
  8. The Shetland Islands
  9. Greenland.

And note that the Viking who discovered Greenland was a ruler of your name: Erik the Red. By contrast, you, Eric, are Eric the Emerald. Hence, it is fitting that the Eternal Ruler of Greenland is another man by the name of Eric, which does in fact mean “Eternal Ruler” in Old Norse. And it is also fitting that the land given to you is called “Greenland” for the Emerald is a green gemstone. Hence, there are many connections between you and Greenland that make your acquisition of this large strategic island most fitting.

Lord, I have a most curious question. Ask, My servant. For most of the game, I was given the land of America as my eternal dominion. And I am an American. And I live in America, particularly, in California. And yet, I now, at this stage, have full possession of the British Isles, and also Greenland, but nothing of the United States of America or Canada anymore, over which I was once set as eternal ruler. In fact, it was once said that those land were my Kingdom proper. And they were called the Larimar Kingdom. What changed, O’ Lord?

Two things changed, O’ Larimar King. First, you entered into an eternal espousal with an ancient consecrated virgin martyr of the Lord Jesus Christ, namely, Saint Katherine of Alexandria. And second, the lands of America where you dwell and that were once called your dominion are to now be utterly destroyed. You are getting out just in time.

Lord, that’s great! It is high time for the Great Chastisement to fall upon the ungodly. Now, what about all your people in America besides me? How do they get out? For you are taking me out by taking me to the Kingdom. How do the rest of your people in America get out before the destruction of those lands, O’ Lord and God? And don’t say they will be raptured up to heaven, because that is impossible for us to know of any such day or hour for that to occur.

OK, Eric, I will tell you plainly. I have sent My angels to completely tour your nations in the Americas. And none but you and a scant few others have shown that level of hospitality required by My Justice to keep the land from being destroyed. Hence, you and those scant few I will remove before I destroy this nation. Where I will take them is a secret. Oracle of the Lord!

Lord, I know this revelation is of divine origin. And I know that I am talking with the Lord God. Tell me, O’ Living King, is the Second Coming soon or possibly many generations away? Or can you reveal these things to me? Man will see signs, like the destruction of the United States of America, and then expect My sudden return. But time will plod on. And new generations will come. And your tale in it shall become legend, just as your beloved espoused is also now the stuff of legend. Do you know that already, many who read these posts wonder if you are even a real person yourself?

And when you are taken away, many, I tell you, will look for you. And bounties will be placed upon your head. And there will be rewards offered to capture you, dead or alive. But no one will ever find you are figure out where you have gone. For you will no longer be in this world. Oracle of the Lord! And churches will be ransacked in the quest to find you. And monasteries will be razed to the ground in order to smoke you out. But no sign of you anywhere in all the land will ever be found. Amen.

And bloodhounds will be given the scent of your clothing. But always, they will lead back to the last place where you were when you were taken by angels away from this world. And yes, this process of your removal will involve your death. And your body will be buried in a place of snow. And when a future pope opens up the formal process for your canonization, I will have the snow that hides your incorrupt body melt, and then your body will be found.

Now, let us analyze the developments taking place. President Donald John Trump has now started World War III. And all those people who supported him, what will they say when they see all their young men coming back in body bags, or as amputees? Back in the distant past, when George W. Bush was leading the nation to war, Eric heard a woman say an interesting thing. She said, “We need to show them who’s boss.” I wonder if she reconsidered her words after the war sapped the strength and wealth of the United States and killed or wounded the many men in the volunteer army. Perhaps it was found acceptable because there was no draft. Trump will reinstitute the draft. For there is no greater cause, Trump will tell the young men, than to die in the service of this great country, and especially in the service of the great one who is their President. And Trump will praise Adolf Hitler on is ability to get young men to die for him and for his causes. Yes, greater than Adolf Hitler will President Donald John Trump aspire to be. Amen.

And so, where shall Eric be, you ask? In the Kingdom of Heaven, O’ Larimar King. And there you will be reigning with all My elect, particularly your appointed espoused.

Lord, the appointed espoused is not a part of Catholic teaching. And nowhere is it found anywhere in the scriptures nor in holy tradition. How do we know that this teaching, therefore, is from God?

Consider the first recorded miracle of Jesus. It was the changing of water into wine at the wedding of Cana. If the Lord should stoop to see to the needs of a mere earthly wedding, what shall He do for an eternal union between His virgin son and a consecrated virgin maid of His possession? Will He not do even greater miracles and greater works than what He did in Cana?

Very well, O’ Lord, you speak with a wisdom that cannot be refuted. But one last question I will put to you that is likely to come from the Bishop who is to consider the case for Eric’s canonization. How did Eric discern with clarity the communication coming from this ancient saint in the Catholic Church from demons who are always going about the world impersonating people from the past? How can Eric prove that he has discerned this correctly? How does Eric know that this Katarina of Alexandria is not a demon impersonating the saint?

Eric knows this because his soul testifies to its clean conscience, and the Holy Spirit does not convict Eric of any sin. In that event that Eric were to be fooled by a demon impersonating that saint, he would be in error. And I would have warned Eric to cease and desist. And if he ignored that warning, he would then be in mortal sin. Since none of this has happened, you can safely know that Eric has genuinely contracted this eternal relationship with this consecrated virgin saint of the past.

Note also that the fruit of this relationship is not sin. Eric now lives as a perfectly purified continent celibate virgin. And he has no sexual fantasies. He looks at nothing sexual. And he never seeks to touch this consecrated virgin of the past. Hence, the fruit of this is a clean life, a clean spirit, and clean flesh. Were this to have been the work of the devil, it would bear the signs of Satan, which are sexual immorality, adultery, impurity, homosexuality, and abomination. None of those things are found in this relationship. Hence, the fruits of the relationship testify to the cleanliness of the two who are united.

Lord, let us ask and get an answer from you on a question I have not thought of, but one you know will be asked by the leaders of the Catholic Church when they study this case. Ask, My Lord, and then, let’s hear Your answer in the wisdom of Your Way.

One question that has not been asked but that shall be asked is this: How can we trust the honesty of Eric? How can we trust that this is not all some fictional fantasy made up to fool the many? How do we know that Eric, himself, is not lying to us? How do we know that Eric, himself, is not the red devil himself disguised as this saint and leading the people away from God?

And now I shall give an answer to this question. What do you see on this website where you are reading these words? Do you see advertisements? Do you see requests for money? Do you see scantily clad women? Do you see forms requesting your information. Do you see a requirement that you log in to access this site? If you are reading this on emeralogy.com, and Eric is still in this world, then the answer to all of those questions is No. Furthermore, Eric has put all of these and all his holy writings into the public domain. This was decreed by Eric a few posts ago.

Furthermore, you know that Eric is not of Satan by the very fact that he confesses his sins in his posts and subjects himself to humiliation before you. Men belonging to Satan are consumed with pride. They never confess their sins to anyone. For to confess one’s sins is to acknowledge wrongdoing, and no devil ever does that.

And finally, you can compare the doctrine preached here with that from the Holy Catholic Church, and you will find no serious inconsistency that goes uncorrected. And whoever preaches submission to the Church and to the pope and to Jesus Christ and to Mary cannot be of the red devil whose goal is the destruction of this Church. For it is written, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” (Matthew 12:22-28).

    February 4th to 13th, 2018 – Novena of the Holy Face

    Hear my voice, LORD, when I call; have mercy on me and answer me. “Come,” says my heart, “seek God’s Face”, your Face, LORD, do I seek! Do not hide your Face from me… (Psalm 26: 7-9)

    “Does my soul thirst for the living God when I see His Face? I would like my daughters – and the devotees – to stand out in practical, loving, generous ardor in honoring the HOLY FACE of our JESUS, grieving for the sins of men … of all sins… of our sins… but especially of those who should be His most intimate friends. What will we do? If we look deeply into that divine Face, it will speak to us in the heart, we will participate in the most bitter pains, and it will tell us what to do: ‘At least you console Me, say that you love Me, that you will be all Mine.’ Let us enter with Jesus into the Garden of Olives and contemplate with love and compunction the pains of His Heart, in His Holy Face. Let us join the Divine Victim, offering ourselves on all the altars of the world to be with HIM true souls who make reparation, in union with the Immaculate Virgin Mary, the first Repairer.” –Bl. Mother Maria Pierina De Micheli writing about a Novena to the Holy Face.

    Bl. Mother Maria Pierina De Micheli

    Bl. Mother Pierina was born in Milan, Italy, in 1890. She had mystical experiences since her childhood. She became a Daughter of the Immaculate Conception Nun and was sent to Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1915, then returned to Italy in 1921. In 1936, during night adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on the first Friday of Lent, she received a messages from Our Lord and the Blessed Mother, telling her to spread devotion to His Holy Face. At that time she was told to have medals made with the image of the Face of the Shroud of Turin on one side and a radiant Host on the other. The words on the medal read, “Illumina Domine Vultum Tuum Super Nos” (“May, Lord, the light of Your Countenance shine upon us”) on the front and “Mane Nobiscum Domine”(Stay with us Lord”) on the reverse. It was this medal of the Holy Face that inspired Pope St. John Paul II to dedicate the millennium to the Holy Face of Jesus.

    Servant of God Idlebrando Gregori, OSB Spiritual advisor of Bl. Mother De Micheli and Founder of the Sisters of Reparation of the Holy Face

    Our Lord told Mother Pierina:

    “By my Holy Face, you will obtain the conversion of numberless sinners. Nothing that you ask in making this offering will be refused you. According to the care you take in making reparation to My Face, disfigured by blasphemers, I will take care of yours, which has been disfigured by sin. I will reprint upon it My Image, and render it as beautiful as it was on leaving the Baptismal Fount. I promise personal and spiritual protection to all who venerate this (Holy Face) medal.”

    The Blessed Mother also requested the sanctification of Tuesdays by making a visit to the Blessed Sacrament, and that a special feast be instituted in honor of the Holy Face on “Shrove Tuesday” which is the Tuesday preceding Ash Wednesday. On that day “we should make expiation for our own sins and the sins of others who dishonor the Sacred Face of Jesus by their ingratitude and sinful lives.”

    “Do you see how I suffer? Yet, very few understand me. Those who say they love me are very ungrateful! I have given my HEART as the sensible object of my great LOVE to men and I give my FACE as the sensible object of my sorrow for the sins of men. I wish that it be venerated by a special Feast on Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday. I wish that the feast be preceded by a novena in which the faithful make reparation with Me, joining together and sharing in my sorrow.” –Words of Our Lord to Bl. Mother Maria Pierina de Micheli

    Our Lord referred to the work of reparation to the Holy Face as “The most beautiful work under the sun!” which He revealed as being destined to be the means of defeating atheistic Communism and restoring peace to the world.

    Thank you for providing the day-by-day prayers for the novena. They will be a useful reminder.ReplyLike

    Bl. Mother Maria Pierina De Micheli known for her extraordinary devotion to The Holy Face of Jesus and The Holy Face MedalThe great “Missionary of the Holy Face,” Blessed Mother Maria Pierina De Michele, was asked by Our Lord to have a Feast of the Holy Face, which was to be preceded by a novena. (The Feast was approved in 1958 by Pope Pius XII, who formally declared the Feast of the Holy Face on “Shrove Tuesday” (The Tuesday which precedes Ash Wednesday.)Bl. Mother Maria Pierina inspired her Daughters of the Immaculate Conception to make a novena with all the fervor of their hearts, uniting themselves to Jesus in grief and suffering, in the Garden of Gethsemane. She exhorted her nuns to honor the Face of Jesus by giving Him “a kiss of love.”“Honor the Holy Face of our dear Jesus, sorrowful for the sins of men–ours–everyones–but specially for those who should be His intimate friends…Let us gaze profoundly at that Divine Face–speak heart to heart–and we will share His most bitter griefs–and He will say, ‘Console Me, you at least who say you love Me–in order to be all Mine.’” –Bl.

  4. Open Letter of Archbishop Vigano to President Donald Trump
    1d ago
    FeaturedSacramento DioceseSJBSJB CaliforniaSJB sacramento

    June 7, 2020
    Holy Trinity Sunday

    Mr. President,

    In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two
    opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children
    of darkness. The children of light constitute the most conspicuous part of
    humanity, while the children of darkness represent an absolute minority. And
    yet the former are the object of a sort of discrimination which places them in a
    situation of moral inferiority with respect to their adversaries, who often hold
    strategic positions in government, in politics, in the economy and in the media.
    In an apparently inexplicable way, the good are held hostage by the wicked and
    by those who help them either out of self-interest or fearfulness.

    These two sides, which have a Biblical nature, follow the clear
    separation between the offspring of the Woman and the offspring of the Serpent.
    On the one hand there are those who, although they have a thousand defects and
    weaknesses, are motivated by the desire to do good, to be honest, to raise a
    family, to engage in work, to give prosperity to their homeland, to help the
    needy, and, in obedience to the Law of God, to merit the Kingdom of Heaven.
    On the other hand, there are those who serve themselves, who do not hold any
    moral principles, who want to demolish the family and the nation, exploit
    workers to make themselves unduly wealthy, foment internal divisions and
    wars, and accumulate power and money: for them the fallacious illusion of
    temporal well-being will one day – if they do not repent – yield to the terrible
    fate that awaits them, far from God, in eternal damnation.

    In society, Mr. President, these two opposing realities co-exist as eternal
    enemies, just as God and Satan are eternal enemies. And it appears that the
    children of darkness – whom we may easily identify with the deep state which
    you wisely oppose and which is fiercely waging war against you in these days
    – have decided to show their cards, so to speak, by now revealing their plans.
    They seem to be so certain of already having everything under control that they
    have laid aside that circumspection that until now had at least partially
    concealed their true intentions. The investigations already under way will reveal
    the true responsibility of those who managed the Covid emergency not only in
    the area of health care but also in politics, the economy, and the media. We will
    probably find that in this colossal operation of social engineering there are
    people who have decided the fate of humanity, arrogating to themselves the
    right to act against the will of citizens and their representatives in the
    governments of nations.

    We will also discover that the riots in these days were provoked by those
    who, seeing that the virus is inevitably fading and that the social alarm of the
    pandemic is waning, necessarily have had to provoke civil disturbances,
    because they would be followed by repression which, although legitimate, could
    be condemned as an unjustified aggression against the population. The same
    thing is also happening in Europe, in perfect synchrony. It is quite clear that the
    use of street protests is instrumental to the purposes of those who would like to
    see someone elected in the upcoming presidential elections who embodies the
    goals of the deep state and who expresses those goals faithfully and with
    conviction. It will not be surprising if, in a few months, we learn once again that
    hidden behind these acts of vandalism and violence there are those who hope to
    profit from the dissolution of the social order so as to build a world without
    freedom: Solve et Coagula, as the Masonic adage teaches.

    Although it may seem disconcerting, the opposing alignments I have
    described are also found in religious circles. There are faithful Shepherds who
    care for the flock of Christ, but there are also mercenary infidels who seek to
    scatter the flock and hand the sheep over to be devoured by ravenous wolves. It
    is not surprising that these mercenaries are allies of the children of darkness and
    hate the children of light: just as there is a deep state, there is also a deep church
    that betrays its duties and forswears its proper commitments before God. Thus
    the Invisible Enemy, whom good rulers fight against in public affairs, is also
    fought against by good shepherds in the ecclesiastical sphere. It is a spiritual
    battle, which I spoke about in my recent Appeal which was published on May
    8.

    For the first time, the United States has in you a President who
    courageously defends the right to life, who is not ashamed to denounce the
    persecution of Christians throughout the world, who speaks of Jesus Christ and
    the right of citizens to freedom of worship. Your participation in the March for
    Life, and more recently your proclamation of the month of April as National
    Child Abuse Prevention Month, are actions that confirm which side you wish to
    fight on. And I dare to believe that both of us are on the same side in this battle,
    albeit with different weapons.

    For this reason, I believe that the attack to which you were subjected
    after your visit to the National Shrine of Saint John Paul II is part of the
    orchestrated media narrative which seeks not to fight racism and bring social
    order, but to aggravate dispositions; not to bring justice, but to legitimize
    violence and crime; not to serve the truth, but to favor one political faction. And
    it is disconcerting that there are Bishops – such as those whom I recently
    denounced – who, by their words, prove that they are aligned on the opposing
    side. They are subservient to the deep state, to globalism, to aligned thought, to
    the New World Order which they invoke ever more frequently in the name of a
    universal brotherhood which has nothing Christian about it, but which evokes
    the Masonic ideals of those want to dominate the world by driving God out of
    the courts, out of schools, out of families, and perhaps even out of churches.

    The American people are mature and have now understood how much
    the mainstream media does not want to spread the truth but seeks to silence and
    distort it, spreading the lie that is useful for the purposes of their masters.
    However, it is important that the good – who are the majority – wake up from
    their sluggishness and do not accept being deceived by a minority of dishonest
    people with unavowable purposes. It is necessary that the good, the children of
    light, come together and make their voices heard. What more effective way is
    there to do this, Mr. President, than by prayer, asking the Lord to protect you,
    the United States, and all of humanity from this enormous attack of the Enemy?
    Before the power of prayer, the deceptions of the children of darkness will
    collapse, their plots will be revealed, their betrayal will be shown, their
    frightening power will end in nothing, brought to light and exposed for what it
    is: an infernal deception.

    Mr. President, my prayer is constantly turned to the beloved American
    nation, where I had the privilege and honor of being sent by Pope Benedict XVI
    as Apostolic Nuncio. In this dramatic and decisive hour for all of humanity, I
    am praying for you and also for all those who are at your side in the government
    of the United States. I trust that the American people are united with me and
    you in prayer to Almighty God.

    United against the Invisible Enemy of all humanity, I bless you and the
    First Lady, the beloved American nation, and all men and women of good will.

    Martin Luther in Hell

    Martin Luther in Hell

    In 1883, Sister Maria Serafina Micheli (1849-1911) was beatified in Faicchio in the province of Benevento in the diocese of Cerreto Sannita 28 May 2011, the foundress of the Sisters of the Angels, was going to Eisleben, Saxony, the birthplace of Luther. The fourth centenary of the birth of the great heretic (10 November 1483) was celebrated on that day.

    The streets were crowded, balconies included. Among the many personalities were expected at any time, with the arrival of Emperor Wilhelm I, who presided over the solemn celebrations.

    The future Blessed, noting the great hoopla was not interested in knowing the reason for this unusual animation, wanted to find a church and pray to be able to make a visit to the Blessed Sacrament. After walking for a while, she finally found one, but the doors were closed. She knelt on the steps for serenity prayer. As it was in the evening, she had not noticed that it was not a Catholic church, but Protestant. While praying, the angel appeared, who said to her. “Arise, because it is a Protestant church” Then he added: “But I want you to see where Martin Luther was condemned and the pain he suffered as a punishment for his pride.”

    After these words, she saw a terrible abyss of fire, where they were cruelly tortured countless souls. In the bottom of this hole there was a man, Martin Luther, which differed from the other: it was surrounded by demons that forced him to kneel, and all armed with hammers, they tried in vain , to shove a big nail in the head. Religious thought, if some of the people had seen this dramatic scene, they would not have made honors and other commemorations and celebrations for such a character.

    Later, when the opportunity arose to remind his sisters live in humility and in secret. She was convinced that Martin Luther was punished in hell especially for the first deadly sin of pride. Pride is a deadly sin, brought him open rebellion against the Roman Catholic Church. His behavior, his attitude towards the Church, and his preaching were crucial to encourage and bring many souls to eternal ruin.

    I used to believe Luther was a hero; now I realize he was a heretic. Salvation by faith alone is NOT Biblical; salvation by faith working through love IS Biblical. Thousands – no millions – of people believe their works don’t matter. This is a travesty. Believing in Luther led me down a destructive path of sin, which would have led me to hell. I’m leaving Luther. I’m returning to the Truth, which is with the Catholic Church. I will trust in the Church’s interpretation of Scripture – and not Luther’s.

    Novena to the Most Pure Heart of Mary:
    32m ago

    In 1805, Pope Pius VII instituted the feast of the Most Pure Heart of Mary; it was not until 1944 that Pope Pius XII would add to the Roman Rite Calendar, the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (August 22nd). This glorious feast of the Most Pure Heart has been practiced since 1647 by Saint John Eudes and quickly gained popularity all over France. Eudes, soon after composed the prayers for the Divine Office and gained approval of it in 1648; it was eventually adopted by many religious congregations in his native France. Now, this ancient feast is celebrated on the Saturday after Corpus Christi following the feast of the Sacred Heart. It is no mere coincidence these two principle feasts are placed side by side (just as the First Friday is next to the First Saturday). This should evermore remind us of Our Lord’s ardent request at Fatima, that He desires to see devotion to His Mother’s Heart placed beside devotion to His Sacred Heart. For Their Heart(s) truly beat as One.

    Nine Day Novena to the Most Pure Heart ( Begun on Corpus Christi):
    Novena can be used for the Immaculate Heart, starts nine days before August 22nd.
    Daily prayer during Novena:
    O’ Queen of Heaven, at Fatima You promised salvation to those who embrace true devotion to Your Immaculate Heart; today we come to Your Majesty ready to make reparation for all the sins committed against Thy Most Pure Heart. You see, Good Mother, we only desire to make You known and loved; cherished and chosen. We desire with Your Chaste Son, to see Your Sorrowful Heart triumph. ~Amen~

    Jesus, it is for love of You, the conversion of sinners and as an act of reparation for all the sins made against the Immaculate Heart of Mary (Three times).

    Day 1- Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary:
    Mary, Your Heart is our daily food, our nourishment. In It, we find God, and God alone. In our lifetime, we beg the Good God to place devotion to Your Heart beside devotion to the Sacred and Divine Heart of His Son. Place in our hearts the yearning and love of the feast(s) of Your Most Pure Heart and Your Most Immaculate Heart. As a Queen sits next to Her King, may we see Your pierced Heart placed beside His Eucharistic Heart. Our love for You and Your Perfect Heart is weak and imperfect, from this day forth we come to Your Queenship ready to love You evermore. We also place in Your care the following requests if it be in line with the Divine Will (mention your intention).

    -Recite daily prayer-

    il_794xN.1921091369_1m08
    Day 2- The Holy Father:
    young pope
    Dearest Queen, at Fatima you said the Holy Father would have much to suffer. In the vision, You showed a future pope and a bishop dressed in white, Lucia said: “we had the impression it was the Holy Father.” This pope would be seen martyred in a half ruined city among other religious. The Vatican has kept secret Your Majesty’s words explaining the vision. As we walk forward in the fog, we pray that The Holy Father will reveal the secret in it’s entirety so we can better understand the meaning of this mystery. A vision still unfulfilled. We know disasters can be averted if we entrust ourselves to Your Immaculate Heart, and with little Jacinta, offer up every sacrifice for the Holy Father to receive the grace he so urgently needs to heed Your requests from 1917.

    Day 3- All the Bishops of the World:
    PopeBenedictAustralianBishops_2011_CNS-850 (2)
    Good Mother, at Akita You warned that there would come a time where Holy Church would see cardinal apposing cardinal; bishop against bishop. It would appear we are in those times; we come to You this day to place in the tender care of Your Immaculate Heart all the bishops of the world. You also warned priests devoted to Your Queenship would be scorned and oppressed by their confreres.We beg of You to obtain the grace for these shepherds, to be faithful and pleasing to Your Divine Son- even amid persecution. At Fatima, Your Grace warned that there would be an apostasy in the Church starting at the top of the Catholic hierarchy. We are indeed, at present, suffering a diabolical disorientation and many souls are being led astray by our bishops. May You open their eyes and hearts to Your Pure Heart, Church teachings and loyalty to Your ignored Fatima message.

    Day 4- First Saturday Devotion:
    e139a1deb913f69a5b3ed297d405b569 (2)
    Devout Virgin, we come before Your throne of grace ready to console Your Most Pure Heart. Our Lord told Sister Lucia that His Heart was moved to establish a devotion that would remove the five principle thorns that pierce Our Mother’s Broken Heart:

    The blasphemies against the Immaculate Conception.
    Against Her Perpetual Virginity.
    Against Her Divine Maternity, refusing at the same time to accept Her as Mother of all mankind.
    Those who try publicly to implant in the children’s hearts, indifference, contempt and even hate against this Immaculate Mother.
    Those who insult Her directly in Her sacred images.
    The thought of causing You anymore pain is unbearable, therefore, we wish to be faithful in observing the practice of the First Saturday Devotion, not just for the first five consecutive Saturdays, but ALL to come. With Lucia of Fatima, may we echo her cry:

    I never feel so happy as when First Saturday arrives…

    We also place in Your care the following requests if it be in line with the Divine Will (mention your intention).

    Day 5- Consecration of Russia:
    unnamed (2)
    Sister Lucia lamented,

    The Consecration of Russia has not been done as Our Lady demanded it. I was not able to say it because I did not have permission of the Holy See.

    Gentle Mother, we know that the triumph of Your Heart followed by the sweet era of peace can only come with the proper consecration of Russia. This day, we come to Your Ladyship and pray specifically for the Holy Father to come in union with all the bishops of the world on one solemn occasion and consecrate Russia to Your Immaculate Heart. With Lucia we cry from the depths of our hearts,

    No! Not the world! Russia! Russia!

    The evil one knows that when this consecration is done, Your Heart will triumph at that moment. We know this, because when Your servant Lucia asked Our Lord why He would not convert Russia without the pope, He answered that through that particular Consecration, Jesus wants the whole Church to recognize that act as a triumph of the Immaculate Heart. Our good God does not need to work through His priests, but He is showing the authority bestowed upon His clergy, in particular the Holy Father and the bishops. The power they can possess when they are in union. What better way to show this great unity, O’ Blessed Queen, than to come together for this Consecration!

    We also place in Your care the following requests if it be in line with the Divine Will (mention your intention).

    -Recite daily prayer-

    Day 6- Our Lady of the Holy Rosary:
    Our-Lady-of-the-Rosary (2)
    O’ Great Lady of the Rosary, we know this triumphant weapon of prayer resembles the sword. How can we go to battle against principalities and powers unarmed? You introduced Yourself at Fatima with this glorious title and we come to Your Feet crying on bended knee: Hail Mary! We desire to be in the army of Your Most Pure, Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart; may we never put down the sword but ever carry it at our side all the days of our lives.

    We also place in Your care the following requests if it be in line with the Divine Will (mention your intention).

    -Recite daily prayer-

    Day 7- Our Lady of Seven Sorrows:
    IMG6502 (2)
    Mother crucified in Thy Heart, we cry with Thee; we understand that devotion to Your Heart means devotion to Your Sorrows. The Church has proclaimed that this very name earned You the title of “Co-redemptrix”. It is a great wonder, O’ Virgin of virgins, that Our Lady of Seven Sorrows is the Patron of exorcists; is it not Your tears that make things clean? If “to consecrate” means “to be made clean”, certainly a Consecration of Russia can be seen as that poor nation being made holy with Your precious tears, by transforming this Republic into a mighty instrument of Your Heart. Mary, joining our tears to Yours we beg of Your Grace to wash the world of it’s sins, crimes and offenses made against God the Father. With Your Divine Son we wish to avert God’s justice and bring upon the world His great and unfathomable mercy, which can only come through Your Humble Heart. We meditate this day on the great mystery of Your having appeared on October 13th 1917 as Our Lady of Seven Sorrows, while at Fatima.

    We also place in Your care the following requests if it be in line with the Divine Will (mention your intention).

    -Recite daily prayer-

    Day 8- Our Lady of Mount Carmel:
    Simonscapular (2)
    “Star of the Sea”, Our Carmelite Father Simon Stock called You; we thank Your Highness for the glorious gift of Your Scapular of Mount Carmel. As it was revealed to a holy soul, the three things Satan fears the most: The Holy Name of Jesus, the Holy Name of Mary and the Scapular of Carmel. In no other sacred object do You promise more certainty of salvation as You do for wearing the Scapular. O’ Mary; You showed Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta the vision of Hell, but immediately reminded the world how to avoid going there, simply by wearing Your Carmelite garment, which as we know is the sign of our being consecrated to Your Immaculate Heart. Like the Rosary, we promise to never be without our “armor”, we need the sword as much as we need our shield. As Lucia said, the Holy Rosary and the Scapular of Carmel are inseparable. And as You said to Saint Simon Stock:

    One day through the Scapular and the Rosary I will save the world.

    We also place in Your care the following requests if it be in line with the Divine Will (mention your intention).

    -Recite daily prayer-

    Day 9- Third Secret of Fatima:
    On this final day, O’ Valiant Queen, we recognize You as Virgo Potens (Virgin Most Powerful). It has been confirmed by Church officials that the third secret of Fatima contained two envelopes: one of the vision of a Holy Father martyred, and the other containing Your words explaining this prophecy of the pope. As the latter has yet to be revealed, we understand that it’s publication is long overdue, as You requested it’s contents be released in 1960. We come to Your Queenship, today, in 2020 knowing that it is late, but asking that You will have mercy on the clergy who keep it hidden. Give them the grace and light to understand that Fatima is the message and remedy for our times and without it, Your Immaculate Heart cannot triumph if Your warnings for mankind are not heeded. The Pope and bishops have only one task: the Consecration of Russia; We lay faithful: Your First Saturday Devotion. As we all have a role to play, Good Mother, we ask pardon of the sins made against Thee, and thank Your Most Pure Heart for all the graces you have bestowed on us.

    We also place in Your care the following requests if it be in line with the Divine Will (mention your intention).

    -Recite daily prayer above-

    707C261F-A745-457C-B83C-E0B0704C5E2D
    Feast day of the Most Pure Heart of Mary- final prayer of thanksgiving:
    Mary, on this most joyous occasion and feast day we offer ourselves to You completely, like Therese, as little victims of holocaust- to bring about the triumph of Your Most Pure and Immaculate Heart. Like the sixteen Carmelite Martyrs of Compiegne, who offered themselves as victims as a community to end the French Revolution’s “Reign of Terror”. Lovely Maiden of Heaven, Our Lord heard those requests, please accept ours as well, as we truly desire only one thing: to love Thee as You deserve to be loved! As Jacinta said,

    Tell everybody that God grants us graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary; that people are to ask Her for them; and that the Heart of Jesus wants the Immaculate Heart of Mary to be venerated at His side. Tell them also to pray to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for peace, since God has entrusted it to Her. If I could only put into the hearts of all, the fire that is burning within my own heart, and that makes me love the Hearts of Jesus and Mary so very much . . .

    Dvadeseta nedjelja kroz godinu
    Homiliju 20. nedjelje kroz godinu napisao je vlč. Dalibor Pilekić. Tijelo je moje jelo istinsko, krv je moja piće istinsko. (Iv 6, 51-58)„ U ono vrijeme: Reče Isus mnoštvu: »Ja sam kruh živi koji je s neba sišao. Tko bude jeo od ovoga kruha, živjet će uvijeke. Kruh koji ću ja dati tijelo je moje – za život svijeta.«Židovi se nato među sobom prepirahu: »Kako nam ovaj može dati tijelo svoje za jelo?« Reče im stoga Isus: »Zaista, zaista, kažem vam: ako ne jedete tijela Sina Čovječjega i ne pijete krvi njegove, nemate života u sebi! Tko blaguje tijelo moje i pije krv moju, ima život vječni; i ja ću ga uskrisiti u posljednji dan. Tijelo je moje jelo istinsko, krv je moja piće istinsko. Tko jede moje tijelo i pije moju krv, u meni ostaje i ja u njemu. Kao što je mene poslao živi Otac i ja živim po Ocu, tako i onaj koji mene blaguje živjet će po meni. Ovo je kruh koji je s neba sišao, ne kao onaj koji jedoše očevi i pomriješe. Tko jede ovaj kruh, živjet će uvijeke.«“Riječ Božja nam već nekoliko nedjelja govori o hrani neophodnoj za dobar ljudski život. Danas slušamo kulminaciju tog govora.Knjiga Izreka u prvom čitanju šalje univerzalni poziv na puni pristup vječnoj Mudrosti – Mudrosti koja se uosobila u osobi Isusa iz Nazareta. Ta Mudrost blaguje se slušajući i živeći Riječ Božju i nagrađuje one koji je blaguju životom vječnim.Ovu misao Starog Zavjeta Isus dovodi do savršene jasnoće. Malo gdje je Isus toliko precizno jasan kao u današnjem svjedočanstvu o sebi samome. Upravo je zbog toga važno poslušati što nam to svjedočanstvo govori. Isus predstavlja sebe kao ultimativnu hranu – hranu koja sve određuje – hranu koja čini razliku između vječnog života i vječne smrti.Isus kao hrana nudi se svima. Uvjet je samo jedan: spremno čisto srce koje vjeruje u Isusa. Sve ostale stvarnosti postaju nevažne: je li netko bogat ili siromašan, Židov ili pogan, rob ili slobodnjak, ove ili one boje kože,… Isus svoj poziv upućuje svima i objašnjava strahovitu važnost tog poziva.Onaj tko blaguje Isusa ima u sebi život vječni! Onaj tko ga odbija blagovati nema života u sebi! Prianjanje uz Isusa ili odbacivanje Isusa predstavlja našu konačnu odluku koja se onda potvrđuje u trenutku naše smrti.Ovih dana slavimo mnoge velike svece. Danas slavimo svetog Roka – zaštitnika od bolesti kuge. Svi sveci su snagu crpili iz samog Isusa: hranili su se njime u svetoj Pričesti, te u poslušnosti Njegovoj riječi. Time nam jasno svjedoče o jedinom putu što vodi u nebo – a taj je sam Isus.Zanimljivo je u tom svjetlu gledati naše suvremenike. Kad im doktori propišu lijekove kako bi ponovo došli do zdravlja ljudi su vrlo poslušni. Premda ti lijekovi nisu ugodni, a ponekad su terapije kroz koje moraju proći i vrlo bolne i neugodne – ljudi ipak pristaju na sve ne bi li kako došli do zdravlja. S druge strane Isus nam nudi daleko veću vrijednost – i to potpuno besplatno. Hranjenje Isusom ne izaziva nikakve bolne posljedice, ali kad treba uzeti hranu života vječnoga – onda se mnogi nećkaju.Čovjek danas mašta o fontani života – kako bi mogao živjeti vječno mlad. No, kad nam Isus ponudi istinsku fontanu života: svoje Tijelo i Krv – onda se radije okrećemo nedohvatljivom maštanju nego da prihvatimo stvarnu ponudu.Zahvalni Bogu što nam daje sebe kao hranu nastojmo ga istinski nasljedovati i donositi plodove života vječnoga kako bi i drugi to isto poželjeli i pridružili se Životu.„Sveti Rok – moli za nas!“

    6 Many are saying, “Oh, that we might see better times!” * Lift up the light of your countenance upon us, O Lord. 7 You have put gladness in my heart, * more than when grain and wine and oil increase. 8 I lie down in peace; at once I fall asleep; * for only you, Lord, make me dwell in safety.

    Psalm 31 In te, Domine, speravi

    1 In you, O Lord, have I taken refuge; let me never be put to shame: * deliver me in your righteousness. 2 Incline your ear to me; * make haste to deliver me. 3 Be my strong rock, a castle to keep me safe, for you are my crag and my stronghold; * for the sake of your Name, lead me and guide me. 4 Take me out of the net that they have secretly set for me, * for you are my tower of strength. 5 Into your hands I commend my spirit, * for you have redeemed me, O Lord, O God of truth.

    3 He shall deliver you from the snare of the hunter * and from the deadly pestilence. 4 He shall cover you with his pinions, and you shall find refuge under his wings; * his faithfulness shall be a shield and buckler. 5 You shall not be afraid of any terror by night, * nor of the arrow that flies by day; 6 Of the plague that stalks in the darkness, * nor of the sickness that lays waste at mid-day. 7 A thousand shall fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, * but it shall not come near you. 8 Your eyes have only to behold * to see the reward of the wicked. 9 Because you have made the Lord your refuge, * and the Most High your habitation, 10 There shall no evil happen to you, * neither shall any plague come near your dwelling. 11 For he shall give his angels charge over you, * to keep you in all your ways. 12 They shall bear you in their hands, * lest you dash your foot against a stone. 13 You shall tread upon the lion and adder; * you shall trample the young lion and the serpent under your feet. 14 Because he is bound to me in love, therefore will I deliver him; * I will protect him, because he knows my Name.

    Week 1

    Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who sleep. Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous; and all for your love’s sake. Amen.

    Week 2

    O God, your unfailing providence sustains the world we live in and the life we live: Watch over those, both night and day, who work while others sleep, and grant that we may never forget that our common life depends upon each other’s toil; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us. And after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, o loving, o sweet Virgin Mary.

    Salve Regina, mater misericordiae, vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra salve. Ad te clamamus, exules filii Evae. Ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes, in hac lacrimarum valle. Eia ergo, advocate nostra, illos tuos misericordes oculos, ad nos converte. Et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui, nobis post hoc exsilium ostende. O Clemens, o pia, o dulcis virgo Maria.

    Some of us will remember celebrating the Feast of Corpus Christi, perhaps as children. The Host, carried in a beautiful monstrance, was processed through the neighborhood, bringing blessing to all who gathered.processWhere did they get all those men!!!!While a rare occurrence today, and considered by some a saccharine expression of devotionalism, the practice was intended to convey a central belief of our faith. It is a belief whose theology continues to evolve and deepen with the passing years:In the gift of Eucharist,
    Jesus Christ has made us
    one Body with Him.
    We are One Body in Christ.A significant step in the evolution of this theology occured with the issuing of the encyclical MYSTICI CORPORIS CHRISTI ( Pope Pius XII, 1943). In this letter, we see a theology beginning to unfold to include not only Christ’s presence on the altar and in the Host, but in the very lives of the faithful.The Sacrament of the Eucharist is itself a striking and wonderful figure of the unity of the Church, if we consider how in the bread to be consecrated many grains go to form one whole,and that in it the very Author of supernatural grace is given to us, so that through Him we may receive the spirit of charity in which we are bidden to live now no longer our own life but the life of Christ, and to love the Redeemer Himself in all the members of His social Body.In his encyclical, ECCLESIA DE EUCHARISTIA (2003), Pope John Paul II, expands this teaching:By the gift of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost the Church was born and set out upon the pathways of the world, yet a decisive moment in her taking shape was certainly the institution of the Eucharist in the Upper Room. Her foundation and wellspring is the whole Triduum paschale, but this is as it were gathered up, foreshadowed and “concentrated’ for ever in the gift of the Eucharist. In this gift Jesus Christ entrusted to his Church the perennial making present of the paschal mystery. With it he brought about a mysterious “oneness in time” between that Triduum and the passage of the centuries.The infinite mystery of God’s relationship with us in Jesus Christ continues to call us to deeper understanding of our relationship with one another. Let us pray today for greater love and fuller surrender of our hearts to this awesome, self-emptying mystery.At the heart of the Christian faith shines an open table without exclusion, where Christ is the chef, the host, and the food of life. The broken bread and the pouring wine manifests the Divine attitude to welcome especially the ones who are brokenhearted, neglected, rejected and crushed. And we are transformed into the body and blood of boundless and creative love, incorporated into the same divine DNA as everyone else – regardless of species, ethnicity, religion, gender, nationality, appearance, or social class.

    SO BEUTIFUL SISTER GOD BLESS YOU :
    Today is the Catholic Feast of Corpus Christi. It’s not a date that draws a lot of attention in the United States, but four years ago I encountered it in full measure in Spain, where it seems no festival or saint or holy remembrance goes unacknowledged, and I’ve been curious about it ever since.
    We were in León, where we’d taken a rest day from our pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago to explore the city and wait for friends to arrive. Our base for the night was the church-run albergue, the Albergue del Monasterio de las Benedictinas.
    We toured the cathedral, watched the crowds, and ate as many tapas as we could. We ended up in the cobblestone courtyard in front of the albergue, splitting our attention between a fútbol game on an outdoor TV, and the two older Benedictine nuns who moved from window to window in the convent above the albergue, hanging red and green buntings from the windows.
    preparing for Corpus ChristiThe next day, someone in the square told us, was the Feast of Corpus Christi. There would be a parade and a festival in the church.
    According to The Catholic Company:
    St. Juliana of Mont Cornillon in Belgium (1193-1258)…was a nun and mystic who had a series of visions in which she was instructed by Our Lord to work to establish a liturgical feast for the Holy Eucharist, to which she had a great devotion.
    After many years of trying, she finally convinced the bishop, the future Pope Urban IV, to create this special feast in honor of the Blessed Sacrament, where none had existed before. Soon after her death, Pope Urban instituted Corpus Christi for the Universal Church and celebrated it for the first time in Orvieto in 1264, a year after the Eucharistic Miracle in Bolsena.
    We didn’t stay in León. One rest day here was enough. Instead, we woke in the golden dawn and wound out of the city and across twenty kilometers of open land to Mazarife.
    We were crossing a field, the town already in view, when the explosions started. At first, I thought they were gunshots. Was someone hunting in June? Someone else suggested that a farmer was shooting blanks in order to frighten birds off the crops. That made more sense, and I just hoped we didn’t look like birds.
    When we checked into our small albergue, our hospitalera mentioned Corpus Christi. “The parade will start after the noon mass.”
    We were always game for a parade. So soon as we’d washed the road dust from ourselves and our laundry, we set off to explore.
    IMG_2411
    We found the church set above the small-town square, a modest building with three giant stork nests in the belfry. A few other people gathered in the limited shade. They didn’t say anything, but there was anticipation in the hot summer air.
    Shortly after we arrived, a solemn-faced band of men and women with bagpipes and wind instruments assembled and waited. They wore traditional dress, the women in long skirts and head scarves, the men in vests and jaunty red cummerbunds.
    They pointedly ignored us.
    Bagpipes
    Finally, the bells in the tower began to rock, just a little at first, and then with such vigor that they spun all the way around in noisy celebration of…well, whatever Corpus Christi celebrated. The storks flew away. The church doors swung open, and the parade started.
    From CatholicCulture.org:
    “Very early (in the fourteenth century) the custom developed of carrying the Blessed Sacrament in a splendid procession through the town after the Mass on Corpus Christi Day. This was encouraged by the popes, some of whom granted special indulgences to all participants. The Council of Trent (1545-1563) solemnly approved and recommended the procession on Corpus Christi as a public profession of the Catholic faith in the real presence of Christ in the Holy Sacrament.
    First there were about a dozen children carrying a litter with a statue of baby Jesus. Then four women, in perfect Sunday dresses and heels, carried a litter with a statue of the Virgin Mary. Then the priest, swinging his censer of incense, led four men carrying a litter with a crucified Jesus. The rest of the congregation followed, all wearing their Sunday best. The band moved in to bring up the rear.
    Corpus Christi
    A man walked in front of the children, and I saw that he was holding a long tube. He fiddled with it, and then boom, we had found the source of those explosions.
    Fireworks. In the middle of the day. In the middle of a crowd. In the middle of the summer. In a town made of wood.
    Safety codes here were obviously different.
    The band played, and the parade moved off. We stayed where we were. Somehow, it felt rude to follow them. A religious celebration like this was no place for tourists.
    From Catholic Digest:
    Corpus Christi is then an opportunity for us to carry the Living Christ out into the world for all to see. This being such a momentous event reflective not only of our faith but the Catholic family as a whole, it has become customary to dress well for Eucharist procession; Sunday best no matter the day… Carrying Christ through the streets in celebration of his life, resurrection, and infinite grace, we publicly testify to our faith in life everlasting and victory over death.
    Instead, we retreated to the shade of the local bar, ordered a pitcher of sangria to share with other pilgrims, and waited for the party to come to us. It didn’t take long. (Mazarife is a town of just 350 people, clustered on a few streets.) The families from the parade came back and filled the space, still in their fancy clothes.
    The procession was done, and the celebration was just beginning.CAMINO TIMES TWO

  7. SRCU MARIJINU ZA OBRAĆENJE GREŠNIKA
    ______________________________________
    O preblaga Marijo, utočište grešnika zbog boli tvoga Srca puna milosrđa i zbog smrti tvoga ljubljenoga Sina Isusa molim te izmoli svim grešnicima svijeta milost iskrenog obraćenja, pogotovu onima koji lošim primjerom i krivim naukama druge navode na grijeh. Srce Marijino puno sućiti pomozi grešnicima.
    _____
    (Iz molitvenika Srce Marijino od p. Hattlera)
    Gospina poruka preko Mirjane, 02.03.2018. :
    “Draga djeco, velika je djela u meni učinio Nebeski Otac kao što ih čini u svima onima koji Ga nježno ljube i vjerno i odano služe.
    Djeco moja, Nebeski Otac vas ljubi pa po njegovoj ljubavi ja sam tu s vama.
    Govorim vam, zašto ne želite vidjeti znakove?
    Uz njega je sve lakše i bol življena s njim je lakša jer postoji vjera.
    Vjera pomaže u boli, a bol bez vjere vodi u očaj.
    Bol življena i Bogu prinesena, uzdiže.
    Pa zar nije moj Sin po svojoj bolnoj žrtvi otkupio svijet?
    Ja sam kao njegova majka bila s Njim u boli i patnji kao što sam sa svima vama.
    Djeco moja, s vama sam u životu, u boli, u patnji, u radosti i ljubavi.
    Zato imajte nadu.
    Nada čini da se shvati da je tu život.
    Djeco moja, ja vam govorim, moj glas govori vašoj duši, moje srce govori vašem srcu.
    Apostoli moje ljubavi, o koliko vas moje majčinsko srce ljubi.
    Kolikim vas mnogim stvarima želim naučiti.
    Koliko moje majčinsko srce želi da ste potpuni, a to možete biti samo kada u vama budu ujedinjeni duša, tijelo i ljubav.
    Molim vas, kao svoju djecu, mnogo molite za crkvu i za njene službenike, vaše pastire, da Crkva bude onakva kakvu je moj Sin želi, bistra kao izvorska voda i puna ljubavi!
    Hvala vam!”
    LODE A MARIA
    3 marzo – Mistero di Maria
    O Madre mia Maria!
    O benedetta fra tutte le donne, io ho una calda confidenza in Te, percio’ come il prodigo della parabola, io mi getto nelle tue braccia, io mi rifugio nel tuo cuore a piangere la mia miseria e i miei peccati, a cercar il tuo materno soccorso.
    Non mi rigettare dal tuo cospetto, o Vergine tenerissima, ma soccorrimi perche’ spero di ottenere tutto dal tuo materno Cuore Immacolato. Dammi la grazia e la forza, la virtu’ e la vita, la luce e la pace, la misericordia e il perdono, la purezza e la gloria del paradiso, o dolcissima Santa Maria.
