The Salvation of the World Rests with My Immaculate Mother

I want you all to work on this medal (*) that has come to your hands through an angel and not as a heirloom, and that Monsignor (**) has so kindly proposed that it be the Medal of the Congress… I will provide the funds; one by one many will be made. Now you will understand. I did everything.

I want you to wear that medal and become worthy of all the graces that will be granted through it.

The heart of My Mother must be honored with Mine, since she is always interceding for all humanity. As long as love will not nourish men’s actions with its strength, his path will continue to hurl downward into ruin and extermination. The crown of thorns that surrounds the two hearts is to teach you to value the terrible suffering of My Passion, of that crown that I carried with love on My head full of blows and cuts, so that you will know at what price your souls were bought.

On the other side ( with the monstrance with the Eucharist), the only thing that will save humanity and, towards that end, the Crusade of Atonement must be directed toward: The Marian Eucharistic Congress.

You see, My daughter, nothing is a coincidence in the things of Heaven, all has a glorious end that was divinely planned.

If there might be many souls that may atone, it would be possible to avoid another deicide that is being prepared. Deicide is to spiritually murder the souls that I redeemed, throwing them into the blackness of blasphemy and heresy, drowning them in the iniquity of the apostasy… They want to dispense with God; pride is blind and makes them deaf; they search in material things what they can find only in Me.

Which one of the men who pretends to improve the world would allow himself to be where I am, on the Cross? Who would suffer and die as I, even knowing that with that all would be saved? No one, My daughter!

Evil can only be extinguished in the fire of My Love and My Truth; in My ever Merciful Heart, which overflowing with generosity, wants to help humanity avoid its total ruin because, to save it, sacrificed Itself on the Tree of the Cross.

If this immolation is to be partly ineffective for the world, may it not be for those whom I call Mine, the ones who place obstacles to My commands or do not silence the sound of man so that he may know of My coming and with it salvation. For this reason, little daughter, write and obey, because this Word of Mine will be for the good of many. Drink at the wound of My side and satisfy the thirst of love that has always filled your heart. You will satisfy those insatiable anxieties upon drinking the living water that will make you find the pain, the suffering, as the greater joy that anyone could imagine. Love of pain is the only sure road to becoming the chosen cup and to find in My Heart a place of infinite happiness.

The salvation of the world rests with My Immaculate Mother because her heart is always offering itself before the Divinity.

(*) It is a medal that represents a monstrance with the Eucharist, and on the reverse side are the hearts of Jesus and Mary surrounded by a crown of thorns. Accompanying them, the following inscription: "Let us eternally adore the Holy Sacrament… to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary honor and glory".

(**) It is referring to the Archbishop of Cochabamba, Monsgr. René Fernández Apaza.
