My dear little children, praised be Jesus!
Do not be discouraged, little ones, when you experience trials and tribulations.
Have hope in Jesus and trust with a filial confidence in God’s Will.
You will merit many virtues for your perseverance in faithfulness.
God sanctifies and purges those who desire to live in union with Him.
He gives you opportunities to practice patience and to grow in holiness.
There are many people who desire God’s help, but few who actually allow Him to assist them.
God’s Way may not always unfold as you would like or have it planned.
It takes unconditional trust in Jesus and the flexibility to conform to His designs presented before you.
Thank God for permitting you to participate in His wondrous Plan for salvation.
Many times, when you experience interior desolation, God is preparing you to receive great virtues; so delight in His Way and surrender in a spirit of love and acceptance to what He has planned for you.
I love you, little children, and as your Mother I desire all good things for your well being.
I take your petitions to My Son, Who has allowed me to be here with you.
Peace to you.
Thank you for responding to my call.
