Spread the Crusade of
Atonement among Priests
My children, spread the Crusade of Atonement among priests. I want to reign through My Heart, since this devotion, reserved by My Love for the salvation of the world, has its moment of extension and increase in all the people.
Just like the spirit of evil prepares to overturn the universe, thus I want the devotion to My Heart and to the heart of My Immaculate Mother to be the restraint that through love comes and succeeds in promptly defeating the Beast. This love that is transformed into atonement and penance for man’s horrible sins, may come to those who are identified by that love.
By intensifying this devotion, all love will be born out of the crusade I request, because a creature not united by love to his God cannot do much.
If I ask for this special devotion to My Heart, it is because all the heartbeats that give life, not only eternally to My body but rather as the principal organ of the mystical life of My Church, depart from this organ of My Body. The sap that vitalizes all its members is in it. And this sap, that is the Divine Love, is not only Mine, but of all the creatures that were given to Me by the Father for their sanctification.
The devotion to My Heart does not mean that My Heart is going to be isolated from Me. It is going to be honored in Me without any separation, for the Love in My Heart is going to work in My deeds. It is going to work in My steps, action, and life: the goodness of mercy, justice, forgiveness, and kindness towards all creatures that have been given to Me, be they near or far. This Heart cannot be separated from Me because I am Love, as man and as God. The devotion to My Heart and to My Mother’s heart must be that: love.
The souls joined and attracted by love feel identified, feel tied to one another. They feel ready to share pains and joys, to sacrifice themselves, and to be immolated for the beloved being. That is what My Heart asks of His creatures, because if they felt a love like that towards Me, I would establish My Kingdom in the world.
That is why I desire that there be more self-sacrificing souls in the world who know, with their surrender, how to console My Heart from the ingratitude of so many souls consecrated to My service, souls who nevertheless reserve their affections for worldly things.
To love and to make amends are two things completely joined. I loved man and made amends for him!
So in loving My Heart, man makes amends for the offenses made to him. He sacrifices himself and, with his sacrifices and immolation, obtains mercy and forgiveness for the souls who offended My Heart. That saving soul saves other souls with his love.
Souls inflamed in My Love will also in turn soon know how to inflame, immolate themselves, and continue amending until obtaining My Heart’s Kingdom in men’s hearts. That is the crusade I ask for through atonement and penance: a crusade of divine love that may be able to contain the Divine Justice with its sacrifices and immolation.
I hope this devotion will light up all souls. I want it to be diffused by all priests and missionaries because it is called to be the salvation of the world. The Missionary Devotion, because of its extension, should reach all men and towns…
