My dear little children, praised be Jesus!
Little children, examine what comes between you and Jesus.
There are many distractions you concentrate on instead of focusing your attention on Jesus.
Many times you go before my Son, or begin to think about Him, and you find yourself thinking of other things.
Distractions are thoughts, desires and feelings which captivate your attention.
If you allow your imagination to wander, you will be bound by the grip of distractions.
These distractions can be diminished by eliminating many aspects in your life without neglecting your duties and responsibilities.
As you attend to various people and duties throughout your day, restrain the amount of attention that is given to only what is necessary.
This will allow you to be closer to my Son by allowing you to concentrate your attention on Him.
This does not mean that you are to love less.
This means to give all your love and attention to each person and circumstance as is necessary and to make a determined effort on concentrating on my Son.
Do not give your attention to what seems unnecessary.
Examine now how many things in your life that can be eliminated without neglecting your responsibilities and daily duties.
I love you, little ones, and take your petitions to my Son who loves you.
Peace to you, little ones.
Thank you for responding to my call.
