My dear little children, praise be Jesus!
Little ones, it is a great sorrow for My Son and a pain in His Heart when people believe they can have union with God without prayer, and they do not believe in His True Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament or in eternal life after death.
Those lost souls are missing the great opportunity to know the treasure that is available within their souls.
They separate themselves from God and will not be able to see Him unveiled in Heaven in all His beauty.
Those who contemplate Jesus will love Him and desire to live every aspect of His Life and Death.
They will accept their cross, as did My Son, with arms extended.
They want to share His eternal Life.
I tell you, little children, that hell does exist.
Do not be deceived to think you can have God dwell within you without prayer. Satan’s influence is strong. You must pray.
To know God and to have an intimate relationship with Him, you must carry Him within your souls through His grace.
Hell is a burning furnace where souls choose to go because they ignore or despise God’s merciful grace.
If you think you must be wicked in deeds alone to enter hell, you are quite wrong.
If your life is pleasant and filled with all the cares of living but it is exempt from prayer, you are cultivating an environment in which at the hour of your death you will be forced to understand how you refused God’s grace.
You will receive the knowledge of Truth, and your own judgement becomes final when you reject God’s Mercy and you choose to live in hell.
To see God, little children, you must remain in a state of grace.
You must pray continuously within your souls.
I am your Mother who desires you to awake from the darkness of the world.
The greatest sorrow any soul can suffer is the torture that results to those souls who go to hell with the knowledge that they will never see God.
Join me in prayer, little children. Do not be submerged in ignorance, but absorb the knowledge of God’s Truth and Light.
Share with me the joy of my Motherhood.
Peace to you. I take your petitions to my Son, your Messiah.
Thank you for responding to my call.
