As we were reciting the Holy Rosary, prior to the celebration of Mass, the Blessed Mother appeared. She was as every other time, standing in the middle of the water while the Holy Souls were gathering to meet her. This is what she said on this first Saturday in May:
So many of you are concerned that petitions for particular needs are granted to some and not to others. Some of you whose petitions are not answered think that this is because they are unworthy. Others believe that the "miracle" is no more than coincidence. Others again attribute it wrongly to individuals who have "magic" powers. Others, again, are misled into believing that a "miracle" is not a miracle unless it takes place instantly and completely according to the justification of the human mind and knowledge.
None are correct. Each and every one is worthy because each and every one is loved by God, the Father, the Almighty who created you, equally. I have told you before that each communication between God and creature is according to God's will and requires the full cooperation of the creature in true faith.
When you ask a favour of the Father you must ask it from a particular state of trust, that it is granted as you ask it. That particular state of faith is achieved when you have truly repented all your sins, be they sinful actions or thoughts or untoward feelings. Therefore, when you ask you should be free of any ill-feelings towards any other person, including those persons whom you consider the enemies of yourselves or others or even of themselves. If you stand in untoward judgment of any person, your soul is not free to cooperate with your maker, your soul is earth-bound and unable to receive the grace you are asking for. But the Father's Love knows no limit and He will nevertheless grant that which is good for all in His own time in answer to the need, if not directly to the person petitioning for the favour. This is the key: God grants in His own time and the time of God, the Father, the Almighty is eternity.
Such is the case with creation itself. Many amongst you seek to discredit the fact that creation is from God and they say that it is not true that creation came to be in so many days as scriptures declare. They say that creation evolved from gases over millions and millions of years. They forget that God, the Father is not limited in time. What is millions of years to you, exiled in time, is but a blink of the eyelid, and not even that, to God, the Father, the Almighty. I pray therefore that you resolve all your personal doubts in faith, for faith is greater than knowledge.
From where God is, He sees not only yourselves as you are now, in your present time, but also as you were in the beginning and as you will be as you return to eternity. Have faith, therefore for you can achieve all in faith. Aim at your salvation, cooperate with the Father and know that the Lord, Jesus, my Son, is always there to assist you when you falter, for Jesus is the compassion of God, the Father, the Almighty.
She smiles on us all and leaves. I prostrate myself because as on every other occasion, I feel weak as she departs. I need to gather myself and long for solitude. However I am shaken by the flood of questions and statements like: "Was she here? I did not see anything" or, "What did she say?" simple questions, curious questions like those of ______ who asks: "Was _______ here?" I am very grateful for the celebration of the Mass which restores my balance in the present and offers me respite.
However, after Mass, again I am cornered by questions. One person in particular comes to mind when she tells me that she does not believe, but would I please ask the Blessed Mother to forgive her. I said to her: “Why do you ask me to speak to the Blessed Mother on your behalf if you do not believe that I see her?”
