These are the words of the Blessed Mother on this day:
If the Church appears to be intent in destroying itself, where is the cause of it? How many amongst you are those who are prepared to accept the appropriate share of responsibility?
Yet you know that your personal action for the restoration is missing. Hypocrites! You accept that there is wrong and rot and yet you proceed to confuse further by allocating responsibility where it does not rest, lest you have to show your own part in the failings.
The Lord Jesus, my son and the Saviour exhorts all the shepherds, all the priests to take up the mission and confirm themselves to the service of God the Father, the Almighty and to bring all souls to His Kingdom.
Priests, do not qualify your obedience with such ideas as pluralism, nationalism and freedom! Embrace the reality that you have confused the children who are lost in ever increasing numbers because of your neglect of them. Too many are deluded, hopeless and despair that you will ever care for their salvation. You have allowed the propagation of too many and varied ideas which you know are in contrast with the revealed truth. Too many are the heresies which you have allowed to be considered and adopted. The morality of your behaviour has been dramatically altered to include the ways of the world.
Yet too many amongst you persist in promoting that the crisis in the Church is a positive outcome of growth and that out of turmoil a new Church will emerge. Yet you know that the Church is the One, the Eternal.
I do ask you to reject all confusion which results from worldly considerations and reinstate that which is the essence of the belief. Do not allow untruth to be at the base for untruth cannot become the essence of the faith which my son has taught with the example of His life.
Priests, if you are the priests who propagate the revealed truth, do reject unconditionally all that is the result of untruth, even when it is the result of human optimism. You know that the major cause of a behavioural malfunction is the negligence of the parent to teach the child correctly. I do ask you to reject all which is primarily worldly from your consideration and retain that which is the essence of the belief. I entreat you not to indulge in human optimism but rather accept that the major cause of the behavioural malfunction in any child is the negligence of the parents to teach the child correctly.
Remember children of the one Father, God the Almighty, that you have recourse to call on Jesus, my son and that when you do so with a sincere heart, Jesus will not ignore your plea.
Priests, do not ignore your responsibility as it relates to the crisis in the Church. Do console yourselves with the knowledge that in earthly life and during it, healing follows illness. Jesus calls you to follow Him at all times and to not allow yourselves to be taken by the ways of the world because in that is the terrible danger that your lives will end with the death of all who will not choose salvation.
Priests, do not avoid the responsibility which the Lord lays at your feet and on your shoulders! Do not say that things are different now to that which was in other periods of mankind's history!
While the problems and sins may be the same, more are those who are lost to salvation now because the helping hand of the priest is not there to lift them up.
Call on Jesus, priests, to assist you in recognising your responsibilities as they relate to the crisis in the Church. The Lord, the Father the Almighty, is great and He is one!
