Extending the Kingdom Of God
Maria says: (Maria Mother and Teacher, Vol. 1) ” My children, may peace, joy, grace and the fraternal love of God be with you now and always. Here I am with you to enjoy your confidences, to receive your prayers and to speak to your minds and your hearts.
I am the Queen of Heaven and Earth, but in this moment I wish to present myself to you as the courier of the King. You know that when an important person has to go and take possession of a place or has to make a visit there, he sends ahead of himself some representatives who prepare the way and the meeting, so that things can turn out according to his desires and in the most ordered way.
Well then, I have come to prepare the visit of Jesus, so that you may be able to prepare yourselves to welcome him triumphantly, reserving to him those honors and that glory which is suited to him in his capacity as King of kings and Lord of lords.
There are many Christians who fear of making my cult an idolatry and, by honoring me, take away something from my Jesus. They do not know that whoever arrives at my heart does not stop, but goes immediately to the Heart of my Son, of which I desire only honour and glory, not having as aim but the spreading of his Kingdom of love on earth.
The Kingdom of Jesus is extended over the whole universe, but He desires to reign above all over men. He desires to possess and to govern their hearts and, animating them with love, He wants that all united they form one sole royal family, the family of God. It is for this that He repeats to you today, and He will go on repeating it every day, that you must all work so that his Kingdom may be extended to the very ends of the earth.
I help you. However, no one will be able to work for the extension of the Kingdom, if he does not make his heart the throne of the Son of the King, and if he does not seek to make his own family his royal palace. My children, extending the Kingdom of God means extending charity, love. You are used to singing in your churches: “Where there is charity and loge; there is God.” It is justly so. Do so that they are not only words that lack correspondence with the facts. Otherwise, you would be like the crowd that, before my Son crowned with thorns as if He were a mock king, yelled: “We do not want him to reign over us”, adding: “That his blood descend on us and on our children (Mt 27:20.)”
You know that I open my heart to you and I tell you of my pains and my joys. If I make present to you what happens in the world, it is because you may avoid so many things and help me to combat evil and spread good. I help you in everything and I turn this place into a little portion of the Kingdom of my Jesus, where He may rejoice and I can spread my graces. You help me. The small seed is growing bigger, in its time it will bring numerous fruits. Listen to me and go along with me.
Your charitable intentions are pleasing to me: all the great works in the world were blessed because the intention that animated them was the good of the brethren, charity and help to the poor, so dear to the heart of God.
I bless you. From whatever place you come from, you are my children. Carry my desires everywhere. May the Kingdom of my Jesus come quickly in the world by my means and yours.”
