There Remains Only the Refuge of My Mother’s Immaculate Heart and Mine

(Praying I ask God to help me have the qualities needed to evangelize and to be able to help save souls).

Do not believe that you would serve Me better. Do not think that the great works accompanied by noise and extraordinary mortification would have greater merit in My eyes if you neglected the small things that I ask of you. I am more pleased with that discipline of the will through which you have come to Me.

Sanctity can be reached in all states. Of some I ask great things, of others, small ones. All of them exercising their will to please Me have the same merit before My eyes because the true value is not in what they do, but rather, in the intention with which they do it, uniting their will and identifying it with Mine.

The world must confide in the heart of My Mother, for only that Immaculate Heart and Mine will be the refuge in the hours of pain and trial that are drawing near. She must be invoked this way: "Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, be our salvation," or "Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, save us as we turn to thee." Because from the very beginning she offered her heart to pain and it very sadly contemplates the limitless evil that her children seek. In that heart all human pain has its echo and its balsam.
That heart that offered itself for the salvation of humanity is also present now to rescue it from ruin. Those, who calling upon her in their distress, come closer to Him and will not perish eternally.

Just like the angels cast the Name of God in His Unity, Trinity and Sanctity to the four winds on earth and sea to prepare the way for the great trial, thus men, all souls, must praise Him incessantly and recognize His might saying: "Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord of all armies, full of Your Glory are the heavens and the earth." I want this to be said frequently, followed by a Glory be…

The recognition of God, one, triune, and omnipotent, the compliance to His Supreme Power, can mitigate the rigor of His justice. Say it like this so that in all the religious houses He will be recognized as Lord of Armies. All those souls consecrated to My service form part of My army, and their prayers are part of the weapons with which the enemy will be defeated and crushed.

The prayers, voluntary sacrifices, atonement and penance are so acceptable to the Divinity to placate His just anger. Why not call humanity to this Crusade that I ask for? Are their eyes so full of dust and mud that it impedes them to see how men hate each other to death? Do they not hear the noise of the storm that is drawing closer?
