Maria says: (Maria Mother and Teacher, Vol. 1) ” My dear children, be the welcomed ones: I am the Mother of Divine Grace. I bring to souls that desire it that powerful force, that brilliant light which in another word is called sanctity. I communicate it to you, this beneficent wave, but the fount of grace and sanctity is the mist sweet Heart of my divine Son.
That’s why I invite you to approach him on this day so radiant. He’ll instil love in you and the rush towards holiness, that holiness which being grace excludes sin, that holiness which being light leads to truth, that holiness which being life of love with God leads as a consequence to happiness, peace and joy.
My children, many times you have been called to be holy. My Jesus did it when He said to you: “Be holy as my Father who is in the heavens is holy (Mt 5:48).” I’ve asked it from you as a special gift of correspondence to my love made of so much tenderness. But in this moment it is the whole of Paradise that invites you to achieve that high stature which the saints have reached, by fighting your battle and living your life.
I only ask you for good will and a little love. All the rest comes as a consequence.
But do you wish that I not be beside you to make the interior life in you grow which is the best part of yourselves? Would I perhaps be a good mother if I were to neglect this duty of mine, when you mothers, even though so limited in your possibilities, you do so much for your children so that they may be healthy in body and so that they may progress and grow in intelligence and physical strength?
In this way, my children, I assist you and make your virtues grow. What concerns me most is that you must go along with me. Don’t waste time on gossip and useless things; utilize the free time from your necessary relationships with your neighbor to stay on in a cordial conversation with me who is your Mother and who desires to embellish your souls, so as to render then a worthy lodging of the most sweet guest of souls, the Holy Spirit..
May the blessing of my Son give you, with the strength to react against the evil that surrounds you, so much love and sweetness, through which, by exercising the Christian virtues, you may be able to spread holiness in the world.
