To the World

My dear little children, praised be Jesus!
Little ones, the clouds of darkness are thickening and closing in around the world.
If you are not solid in your commitment to follow the order of God at all costs, even if it be at the risk of losing a beloved one, you will not be able to discern the confusion and chaos which lies around the corner.
Your eyes must be lowered and head bowed in reverence to the Almighty.
Your first love must be God, and it is necessary for you to follow His way of Truth.
You may be sinners, but you are all called to sainthood; and it is your duty to strive to be loving and humble.
If you do not temper your human inclinations and thoughts with love for neighbor, you only fight evil with evil and fall into the trap of the evil one’s malice and slander.
You will be held accountable for any deliberate actions against your neighbor which defy the law of love.
There are many people who are suffering in this world, and it is necessary that you be a catalyst for peace, not a catalyst for more suffering.
You have been blessed by God to receive words from Heaven, and in His light you should be making every effort to change your deep-seated ways to be like Jesus.
You cannot compromise God’s Plan at any time, at your pleasing, or you will falter.
What is God’s Plan? His Plan is a way of Love.
You must genuinely love unconditionally your neighbors and those with whom you interact.
You cannot be enlightened by the Holy Spirit unless you respond to the Holy Spirit’s inspirations by making every effort to be like Jesus.
Inclinations of the flesh and human nature will attempt to fight the inspirations of the Spirit.
You can control and temper all the sentiments of your flesh through silence, love, prayer and fasting.
Use prudence in your counsel to others, because if it does not reflect genuine unconditional love for your neighbor, your directives can become the source of their sin.
For peace to exist, harmony and unity is essential.
If the small-scaled situations you are meet with today can distract you and disrupt your peace, then what will happen when you are met with direct attacks from my adversary in times to come?
Little children, you must silence scandals and gossiping infecting your communities now, or you will not be able to be a genuine disciple of Love.
I pray you will rise above these present conditions in your world and allow Jesus to draw you to Himself, to imitate Him and conform to His way of Truth.
I love you, little ones, in my Motherly Heart, and I pray you will all follow the saving power of the Gospel of Jesus. I bless you in His Holy Name.
Peace to you.
Thank you for responding to my call.
