To the World

My dear little children, praised be Jesus!
Little ones, do not be discouraged with defeats in your life, but trust in Jesus and remain steadfast in your faith.
I am here to bring you closer to Jesus, and He will bring you to the Father.
Do not become disheartened when people scorn you.
This is part of the spiritual path to holiness and many times unavoidable.
The more you become like Jesus the more the world will scorn you, humiliate you and persecute you.
Do not fear; for I am your Mother of Mercy, and I will protect you.
All who seek refuge in my Immaculate Heart will be safe and filled with a deep inner joy.
Here at this valley of my beloved St. Joseph is the center to which My Immaculate Heart invites all children to seek refuge.
Look to Jesus, little ones, for strength in your sufferings and rejoice in Him that He has chosen you as one of His blessed.
Trust in Jesus with all your heart, and respond to Him if He calls you to do His works of Mercy.
He will not lead you astray.
He will lead you to holiness.
It is necessary for all to respond to His call if evil is to be combated.
You cannot be afraid.
A lack of response is a lack of trust.
It is necessary to be disciplined and obedient to His call.
You must make an effort if Jesus is to draw you closer to Him.
I love you, little children, and bless you in His Name.
Peace to you.
Thank you for responding to my call.
