Norman and I left home a little late today. This made me a little anxious. On arrival we found that Father and Toni were already there. Again we expressed sorrow for our faults, all of us, together and asked that we may enjoy the presence of the Blessed Mother.
She arrived as for the last few months, bathed in the loving light of the great eye. ____ asked me again to present the need of _____to our Blessed and Immaculate Mother. ____'s faith is so simple, so constant and so trusting that she can ask with equal fervour that which is great in faith as well as that which may appear trivial to some of us: "Is _____eating correctly?”
The Blessed Mother speaks:
It is beneficial to express sorrow for sin committed. It is also essential to have the moral strength to recognise sin in personal actions. Too many excuse too readily deeds and thoughts which do not please God, the Father, when committed by themselves. This happens because of self-indulgence, a practice prevalent in all human societies today. Self-indulgence reduces the soul to moral weakness. In this state of moral weakness, too many practice repentance without feeling the rehabilitating power of sorrow. When you recognise sin in yourself and suffer sorrow for it, your penance becomes a participation in the act of penance suffered by the Christ, Jesus, my Son for the redemption of mankind. Penance is beneficial to mankind just as the suffering of the innocent Christ has benefited all of the sinful mankind. I remind you to practice a regime of restraint from self-indulgence because thus is your moral power increased. I remind you that the acts of the body express the acts of the soul.
You have been told that the Lord is coming and that His judgment shall prevail in eternity! You know that the time of His coming is known only to God, the Father, the Almighty! Too many speculate on the coming of the Lord by a deliberate dissemination of fear of his judgment. Do not listen to such talk. Rather look to increasing the moral power of your own soul! You know that the coming of the Lord will not bring about the destruction of creation, but rather the coming of the Lord will mark the end of the works of evil. The Providence of the Creator is governing this creation and man in it. All is decreed by the Providence of the Father. It is Providence which governs all that happens – and all that happens is according to the Will of God, the Father, the Almighty. Look! (She shows me earthquakes, floods, great explosions of mountains and the terrible suffering caused by such and she leads me to understand that all of it is just and the work of Providence because suffering which is endured equally by the good persons as well as the sinners is a suffering designed to be contained in time as we know it! Such suffering is non-existent in eternity: the just man enjoys perfect happiness in the eternal.) Therefore I beg you to learn the importance to eliminate all that is self-indulgence from your actions.
Do not be so concerned about what would suit you best and bring you personal benefits above those enjoyed by your brothers! Complete the work before you and do not ask for other, more congenial work. Be grateful that you have work and food and clothing and that you are able to cooperate with the Father towards the moral end of life by helping those of your brothers who have less!
If you cooperate with your Father in all things you will never experience the ultimate pain which the coming of the Lord will visit on too many of you. But all will experience the final act of divine Providence when the Lord comes again. Be prepared and never forget that hope is the special gift of Providence.
If you believe that God the Father, the Almighty, loves you, you will know without doubt that Providence will bring you to the place where perfect happiness is ever-living. Now, as at this moment, when your personal trust in your Father cannot be improved because you trust and believe to the limit of human capability, you can experience the power of Providence without pain.
(Suddenly I feel an explosion in my body to the point that my bones are dissolving. I am a nothing. But I am aware that my self is held in a power which is Love. I feel no pain). While this experience was taking place, I know that I had prosrated myself because she was leaving. After she had left, I felt devoid of any power. A process of recollection of my physical body took place, slowly and I was finally able to stand.
