I See with Hope the Return of My Children… I Shall Not Ask Them to Account for Anything

I choose the smallest and most useless things of the world to confuse the great ones of this century… The more inadequate the instrument seems for the job, the more skill I use to manage it, and thus, everything will serve for the accomplishment of My designs of Love.

Abandon everything that was created; fix in your heart a hidden cell and withdraw there and think only of Me. God speaks to men one way or another, but men do not know how to take in the Divine Voice. All these messages are not a love story, but a call to all those who will read them and resolve themselves to face Christ. Do not see anything of yours, but rather contemplate My greatness.

I desire for someone to start studying, in light of theological truths, every one of My words in the messages. I will give you unmistakable signs that no one will be able to deny. May the most learned men put all their determination to study them.

I have said it before: I want to be presented to the modern world like Joseph, who opens to all men the Pharaoh's granaries and distributes the grain in abundance so that there will be no hungry people on earth. I would like to be presented like the prodigal son’s father who, aged by the pain of his son’s absence, keeps watch from the window with a small light of hope for the return of his beloved son. I live among all of you, in the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the bread you eat, with the grandiose work of creation that never ceases. In this manner I am among you all, alive, real, with the perpetual sacrifice of the Cross and the Glory of the Resurrection in each Eucharist.

I want the world to know that God is unchanging, that He never lessens His Love for men; I need for man to know that I never set limits to My forgiveness and that I do not ask the prodigal son how he has squandered My estate, nor do I ask for account of his wickedness. It is a new Mercy that I want to give freely to this new generation.

The men who were seduced by material goods have gone away from Me, the alive and fresh water of all good. However, I ask them to return to their father’s house after so much experience, because the hour is late. I do not want to wait any longer for these My children; the banquet, the nuptial vestment, and the ring are all waiting for them.
