Follow the Trail of My Precious Blood

My children, I am the humble Nazarene who comes like an orphan looking for love, a beggar looking for charity, a sick person looking for consolation and a stranger looking for shelter and a place to rest. Do not deny Me; do not close your doors to Me. Extend your hands to receive Me; lend Me your hearts to rest; I beg you, My children. Look how I am: alone, hurt, tired, hungry, and thirsty for love from your souls.

Come back soon, My humble people, your King needs you, your brothers are in great danger. Satan has sent an army of infuriated beasts. If you could only see how many souls they have destroyed with their snares! They extend their tentacles to all corners of the world; they have transformed themselves in all kinds of idols, confusing My beloved children.

Help Me, children, be a small army to guide your brothers who are blinded by power, money, pride, arrogance, everything that the evil enemy of souls gives in abundance.

Help Me, little ones, gather hurriedly all of My beloved sheep, fight and defend them even at the expense of your lives, remember that you will answer to Me when I call you. If you come before Me in a lavish and carefree manner, I shall dismiss you from My Kingdom, because you must have worried more about your well-being and not of your labor. And if I see you coming tired, wounded, and tattered, I shall tell you: come into My arms, blessed ones of My Father, and take possession of My Kingdom, you have been good shepherds.

My children, fight, spread out our love; you have in your hands and in your hearts the means and weapons for the great battle: prayer, praying the Holy Rosary, Penance, Eucharist, fasting, and Works of Mercy.

Do it, My children. I hold you responsible for saving your brothers; you will be the plank of salvation for many in this great shipwreck. Live all these tribulations with faith and perseverance, because the true purification will come later to this world soiled with wickedness and blindness.

Little children, come into My loving Heart, the refuge of forgiveness, peace, and love.

Accompany Me with love and surrender in this coming Lent. You celebrate it like just another anniversary, but no, My children, I suffer again and go over each moment of pain that I suffered to save your souls, and I still have not recovered all the souls that I paid for with the price of My Blood. Each anniversary that you celebrate I feel lonelier, tired, and in constant agony; each time I find more impoverished hearts. They have refused the richness of My Love, they have ill-spent the treasure of My Heart and, in return, they give Me crumbs, rebukes, pride, arrogance, and insolence.

My poor children, the blindness that you have with your ambition prevents you from seeing that I extend My arms to embrace you. You do not see My opened chest where My Most Holy Heart is in continuous offering of Love; you do not see My Divine face that emanates Light and Peace nor even My hands that are full of Grace that I want to give you in exchange for only the surrender of your hearts and humble souls to Me.

My children, how much sorrow you cause Me upon seeing you converted into foolish fanatics that run after idols, which you have created with your desires; you are so blind not to see the infernal hand in all this.

And you, young ones, who begin to walk through the route outlined by the hand of My Father, follow the trail of My precious Blood, spilled for your freedom. Always walk beneath the Light of the Holy Spirit; return to being children so that My Mother can be your Mother. I want you in full sanctification; make your simple hearts grow more and more; do not reduce them with doubts and selfishness. If you love with purity and sincerity, learn to multiply more each time, so that you can divide your love in My Name. Do it like your Teacher who has multiplied bread and fish for all humanity until eternity. Remember, My children, love is infinite; it has neither weight nor measure.

Help Me save souls; My boat is still empty. In it there is the best wine, that is My Blood, and the most exquisite food, that is My Body, in order to satisfy the thirst and the hunger of all My children… Do not leave Me alone; help Me to drink all of these chalices of bitterness that I have before Me. Wake up, My children, from this heavy lethargy of indecision; remain vigilant and ready for the Great Battle.
