My dear little children, praised be Jesus!
Little ones, God desires you to progress spiritually.
In order to do this, it is necessary for you to perform a self-examination in the Presence of God, invoking enlightenment from the Holy Spirit.
God is loving, and it is His Mercy that will give you the knowledge to see yourself as you are.
Examine yourself & your relationships with Him.
Do you love to reflect on God’s goodness?
What are your spiritual exercises?
What are you doing to avoid sin?
In a spirit of humility examine yourself. Examine your language, your affections, pleasures & desires.
Are you more concerned with your body than your soul?
How do you see yourself in God’s eyes?
In what spirit do you refer to yourself?
What are your relationships with your neighbors, relatives & friends?
Do you love them with the Love of God?
Do you disagree with someone in a spirit of disgust or anger?
Do you find reason to defend your argument?
Do you show affection to the people you dislike the most & to those who disagree with you?
Be at peace, little ones, when you do your examination, so that you are able to examine your heart carefully.
Do not reflect on your weaknesses for a long period of time so that you will not fall into a state of self-pity.
Simply take note of your faults & make the resolution to consciously work on those areas the Holy Spirit has enlightened you in a spirit of love.
Be grateful to God for enlightening you.
Give thanks to Him for all the graces He has bestowed on you.
Give Him your heart unconditionally so He can rule over it.
Ask forgiveness for those areas in which you have been unfaithful & disloyal, and implore His assistance so that you may be able to respond to His light & inspirations.
I love you, little children, with the love of a Mother.
I give you my Heart which adores Jesus.
Please give Him your heart.
I bless you in His Name & take your petitions to Him.
Thank you for responding to my call.
