You Are My Friends
The Lord

Dear Missionary, here I am holding your hand once more… Do you love Me?…

(I adore You, Lord!)

I am so glad that you confessed your guilt and that you are now at peace. Forgive Me, but I had to test you like this to show you that I do not like disobedience and even less that you come to receive Me with even a small misdeed in your heart. Your soul belongs to Me, how can I not want it to achieve even greater perfection?

Now that your heart is clean and they need a lot of strength to defend the event that is about to be lost, I want to leave you these irrefutable demonstrations of My satisfaction with your cause.

Now, take photographs in your bedroom, in our oratory, of the images in the corridor. I beg you to do so with both cameras… Then take up your notebook again when you come back from the Rosary. Make copies of this Message only, owing to the importance of the moment.

Later on

Daughter, let us do some work, enough work to discuss a very pleasant topic in the growth of My creature.

During My life on earth, the gentiles thought it was impossible for man to be God’s friend, since friendship makes the friends equal. I told them that they were My friends if they did what I said.

Now I ask you: Is not man foolish to want to live far from God when he can enjoy His friendship? I love all creation and the only thing that I abhor is the sin that contradicts My Will and opposes it. If the sinner were punished with a corporal punishment and also five years in prison for each sin committed, he would think twice about sinning. But he is so foolish that he does not believe in the fire in Hell, the place where he will go to burn for all eternity.

Being a man or a woman denotes a rational being who acts according to reason, not the appetite of his senses. And whosoever does not believe in Hell, tell them to read Deuteronomy 32,29 and to envisage the future with that rational mind. And that is the state of My Church today. Do you know who are the true wise men? Those who live for Me, to fulfill My Will, those who seek My Glory.

So many priests and bishops who thought they were wiser are now in Hell! How low there arrogance has brought them! Poor children who do not know the importance of an act of reparation and adoration of My Divine Body and Blood!… Nihil video, nisi putredinem, ossa et vermes.

Pray, My child. Make amends for the offenses, the insults I receive from many of My consecrated ones…
