Little children, praised be Jesus!
Little ones, I thank God for you. As a humble Mother, I give praise to the Holy Trinity for the gift of your lives, for your freedom, for what you can achieve in God’s Peace, and for how you can reach out in unity to be the Body of Christ, uniting in harmony all peoples of all faiths.
This is a great country that God has blessed. But a true country, worthy of the blessing of God, is not rooted in power or materialism. A country worthy of God’s Peace is a country rooted in prayer, in faith, in love, in honesty, in humility, in perseverance, in compassion and in littleness.
I would invite you, each one of you, my children, to answer this most important question: “Who are you?” You are born alone, and when you come to meet your Creator at some point in your life, you will die alone. So to answer the question, “Who are you?”, you must look into the depths of the core of your soul. You must root out all the vices that are there; and you must grow in true Love, in true humility, and in the freedom which is there, yours to be had.
Freedom is not based in power, but it is based in Truth. With God you have the power and the grace to rise above the challenges, to meet your brother and kinsmen face to face in a handshake, and to become as one, consoling, inviting, unifying and accepting.
I love you; but never forget, God loves you more. He is the Divine; I am the humble messenger; and you are His humble children, invited to be His pillars of Light, Truth and Peace.
Receive the blessings of Almighty God. I take all of your petitions to the Foot of the Cross; and I join you in your suffering, which I know so well. Thank you for your response and your prayers for a free tomorrow.
