Message of Our Lady to Fr. Gobbi
September 6, 1986
"I am your most sorrowful Mother. Again today, I am causing copious tears to fall from my merciful eyes. They want to make you understand how great the sorrow of the Immaculate Heart of your heavenly Mother is.
My Heart is bleeding.
My Heart is transfixed with deep wounds.
My Heart is immersed in a sea of sorrow.
You live unconscious of the fate which is awaiting you. You are spending your days in a state of unawareness, of indifference and of complete incredulity. How is this possible when I, in so many ways and with extraordinary signs, have warned you of the danger into which you are running and have foretold you of the bloody ordeal which is just about to take place?
Because this humanity has not accepted my repeated c to conversion, to repentance, and to a return to God, there - about to fall upon it the greatest chastisement which the history of mankind has ever known. It is a chastisement much great than that of the flood. Fire will fall from heaven, and a great part of humanity will be destroyed.
The Church of Jesus is wounded with the pernicious plague of infidelity and apostasy. In appearance, everything remains calm, and it seems that all is going well. In reality, it is being pervade with an ever widening lack of faith which is spreading the great apostasy everywhere. Many bishops, priests, religious and faithful no longer believe and have already lost the true faith in Jest and in his Gospel. For this reason, the Church must be purified, with persecution and with blood.
There has also entered into the Church disunity, division, strife and antagonism. The forces of atheism and Masonry, having infiltrated within it, are on the point of breaking up its interior unity and of darkening the splendor of its sanctity. These are the times, foretold by me*, when cardinals will be set against cardinals, bishops against bishops and priests against priests, and the flock of Christ will be torn to pieces by rapacious wolves, who have found their way in under the clothing of defenseless and meek lambs. Among them there are even some who occupy posts of great responsibility, and by means of them, Satan has succeeded in entering and in operating at the very summit of the Church. Bishops and priests of the holy Church of God, how great today is your responsibility! The Lord is about to demand of you an account of how you have administered his vineyard. Repent; seek pardon; make amends; and, above all, be once again faithful to the task which has been entrusted to you.
Sin is being committed more and more; it is no longer acknowledged as an evil; it is sought out; it is consciously willed; and it is no longer confessed. Impurity and lewdness cover the homes built by your rebellion.
This is the reason why my Heart is bleeding: because of the obstinate disbelief and the hardness of your hearts.
My Heart is bleeding to see you so closed and insensitive to my sorrowful, motherly admonition.
My Heart is bleeding, because I see your roads even now smeared with blood, while you live in an obstinate unconsciousness of that which awaits you."
