The Great Tribulation Is
My daughter, a great campaign should be drawn up, a Crusade of atonement and penance. This Crusade will be intense and constant, strong and real, and truthful and convincing. The world must prepare itself to resist the attacks of the Beast. The great tribulation is prepared and the world will cry tears of blood.
If the world prays, My reign will be closer and My Sacred Heart will pour over the hearts of men the Light and the Life of the true Love that, being infinite, springs from Me. It will show you the true way to follow with regard to your duty towards your neighbor.
All of humanity offends Me; they do not want to listen to My voice, nor do they want to understand it. But My sadness is greater because even those that call themselves Mine do not want to hear it. I have asked that reparation be made, no one pays attention, they fear the "what will others say". While they vacillate, men continue accumulating iniquities and, as a result, greater chastisement for all humanity.
These people to whom I have given evident signs of My sorrow… so great is their pride that they fear to teach a campaign of prayer and reparation. They are content and believe themselves free of all responsibility by praying on the first Friday of each month… I am tired; their complacency hurts Me!
I want to free man of countless corruption. But between the noise of his eagerness for material things, his worldly preoccupations, his ephemeral joys, his wickedness, hatreds, and grudges… he does not hear the voice that designates the way to avoid the evil which will inevitably fall – if he continues in his deafness – over him and over all the world.
I speak to many souls; I show them the signs; I send them to speak and, like you, they speak repeatedly… on deaf ears.
Speak with the authorities of the Church and tell them that it is My desire: a national preparation of the souls for a National Crusade of prayer and penance based on voluntary sacrifice so that My Heart in its Love will show its Mercy towards the people.
I want preparation for the Crusade, that should take place during Lent, to be preferably for the youth, showing them the way by which they are called by the Divine Will, in order to form the new society of the Kingdom that must come and in which they will be unmovable columns.
This country has a place in these designs and must show itself worthy of My Love. Be it, then, that this country and its children, who setting their sight on My Heart, know how to offer themselves for the atonement that I request.
Organize evrything. The Crusade must start without delay, for humanity needs it. One must pray and atone for all the people who, forgetting Me, have sown hatred and violence.
Only in making man understand where salvation and peace are, will he be able to live in a righteous brotherhood and in the Light that gives truth, truth that he will find only in My Divine Heart. From My Heart he must seek Mercy; copy its gentleness; in it and with it he must suffer and accept whatever is necessary for the required redemption.
He must give that verbal expression which I request. He must call himself to atonement and penance if he wants My peace that is the union of all hearts with My Heart, that peace which is the illumination of the uncreated Love.
The path that humanity follows goes directly to its extermination… If you were to contemplate for one instant, you would be surprised at the foul smell of certain sins that are committed with the deliberate purpose of offending Me.
The horror of the crimes committed by men, creating children in order to kill them, utilizing their lives as one would utilize a piece of leather to fix another piece… the magnitude of the offenses that are committed against the Divinity, the blasphemies and sacrileges that are said and done against Him…
Even among My people there exists this horrible confusion. They arose in their pride against Me and would not listen to My voice; they follow only the voice of their appetites, accommodating their lives and consciences to their passions. How can I be amongst those who, putting aside My word because it is hard to follow, follow only their pride?
The Crusade is necessary in the entire world. Start it in this town, radiate towards other points, so that it will expand, as I wish to expand My Mercy. The word must go forth so that it moves hearts and makes a great part of humanity understand the whirlwind that has enveloped man. The road embarked upon can only take man to total destruction if he does not do penance.
The constant decide ( the spiritual murder of souls that God redeems - see CL-34) that man commits in his pride and cruelty prepares his eternal damnation. Humanity is passing through the decisive crisis of its history.
Far from Me, the majority of the nations, will give themselves to the Beast because this monster of Satan flatters men, propositioning them since the beginning; making them believe that, free from the ties of the commandments, they can work very freely with the view that they are gods of themselves.
Blinded by the glare of that unlimited power that they bring about themselves, they act tyrannically, subduing the defenseless and the innocent, committing all kinds of cruelties and injustices; without thinking that God would have not to exist and that they would have to be all-powerful and immortal to accomplish all this without punishment.
But the Divinity does exist and, they being mortals, God in His justice has to punish this horrendous sin that resembles in its pride the one committed by the rebel angels who were all light and are now darkness.
But not all people will suffer this condemnation. They will suffer according to their sins and, because of that punishment, they will come to understand whereabouts of the path to pursue.
Why have you also ignored My orders? I have spoken to you about a Society of the New Alliance. I have been instructing you on a series of important steps for this great work that I want to do. What am I to expect of others, if you, to whom I have given so much, do not fight for Me?
Why have you all not continued distributing the books in the Convents as I asked? You may not touch one cent for the books because it has been given to you freely in order to diffuse My Word. You also are falling into very great mistakes by not listening carefully to My Words.
I am Love, I am infinite Charity and the infinite Mercy but, I am also absolute Justice…
Thank you, little one, for putting up with your pains for Me. Offer them to My Sacred Heart to console its pains.
