Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God
“Beloved children, begin this new year by celebrating the liturgical solemnity of my divine motherhood. I am true Mother of God because Jesus, who is born of me and is being placed in the manger, is true Son of God.
He is the Eternal Word, consubstantial with the Father, and He assumes his human nature in my virginal womb. He is the gift of love of the Father: ‘God has so loved the world that He has given it his only-begotten Son.’ (cf. Jn 3:16) He is the manifestation of his divine mercy.
Jesus is born of me to be your Redeemer and to set humanity free from slavery to Satan and to lead it back to a full communion of life and of love with God.
- I am Mother of Mercy. My motherly task has been that of giving you Jesus, who is the revelation of the merciful love of the Father. Thus, in order to come to you, divine mercy has passed through the way of my divine and immaculate motherhood.
But I am also your Mother. Beneath the Cross, through the Will of my Son, Jesus, I have become true Mother of all humanity, redeemed and saved by Him. Thus the divine mercy of Jesus, in order to reach you, must pass through the motherly way of my Immaculate Heart. For this reason, the triumph of my Immaculate Heart coincides with the triumph of divine mercy upon the world.
- I am Mother of Mercy. To me was entrusted the task of preparing humanity to receive the heavenly dew of divine mercy.
You have now entered into the final years, which are preparing you for this new and second Advent. They are the most important and difficult years, the most painful and bloody, because during them there must take place the final events that have been foretold to you by me.
My motherly work of mercy is being made manifest during these years in this way:
... in leading you along the way of conversion and of return to the Lord. I desire to give you the grace of a change of heart and of life. I help you to free yourselves from sin, to fight against the passions, to conquer evil; and I lead you to full reconciliation with the Lord your God. It is necessary that this general reconciliation come about quickly, to prepare you thus for the great trial which awaits you, for the complete purification of all humanity.
... in bringing you to a strong experience of prayer. For this, I ask you to multiply and to spread everywhere the cenacles that I have asked of you: among priests, children, youth, and in families. My Immaculate Heart must now become the new and spiritual cenacle, in which you must all gather together, to obtain the gift of the second Pentecost. The purification of the world will come about through the work of the Spirit of Love, who will pour out from heaven his blazing fire to renew the face of the earth.
... in helping you to live through the hour of the great trial. Sufferings never before experienced are awaiting you, because the moment of a universal renewal is drawing close. Satan will be defeated; the power of evil will be destroyed; Jesus will restore his glorious reign among you, and in this way the new heavens and the new earth will be formed. Without an extraordinary intervention of my motherly love, you would not be able to support the pain of the great trial that has now come for all.
- I am Mother of Mercy. The motherly task of assisting the Church in the hour of her greatest suffering has been entrusted to me, because she must climb the Calvary of her immolation and her martyrdom. This merciful action of mine will be exercised in helping her to carry the cross of betrayal and abandonment, when the apostasy becomes general and the man of iniquity foretold by Sacred Scripture enters her – he who will bring the abomination of desolation into her interior.
My merciful action will become still stronger when my children will be persecuted and imprisoned, tormented and led to martyrdom.
It is then that I will manifest myself to them in an extraordinary way, according to a mysterious design that my Immaculate Heart has, for a long time now, already outlined in all its particulars.
- I am Mother of Mercy. All my children, from this year on, will see fulfilled the prodigy of the Woman Clothed with the Sun, and I will pour out upon the world the light and the merciful power of my Immaculate Heart.
For this reason, at the beginning of the new year, I invite all to live in confidence and in prayer. Have no fear. I am with you, and I will manifest myself in an extraordinary way. The more you enter into the time of the purifying trial, the more you will feel, in a powerful way, my merciful and motherly presence.
I bless you all in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”
