Love Gives You Wings
Maria says: (Maria Mother and Teacher, Vol. 1) " My children, this meeting today is dear to me in which the Church celebrates my Annunciation. I also greet you with the angel's greeting and I say to you: hail, my children, be full of the grace that Jesus has brought to men. And may the Lord be with you to help you in all your needs.
And may you too be blessed and blissful, not of the bliss that the world understands, but of the true bliss that comes to your hearts when you do your duty, keep your faith clean and do with generosity the will of God.
And be again blessed when with a lively desire you invite my Jesus to take possession of you and you receive Him in Holy Communion.
Children, I know you are weak and sinners. I know that you desire to be sanctified and many times you feel incapable of taking even alone small steps forward and continue on in virtue. But I say to you that I help you and that I will lead you by the hand until you reach me in Heaven.
Therefore, you see that the Hail Mary which you address to me, straight away finds a resonance in my heart and I return the greeting with much joy. Let this be a spur to you and an invitation to pray better and better, in order to improve more and more with prayer your life also.
You are gathered here and I of each one of you know everything and I know that you all have something to offer me. There is he who offers me his sufferings, he, works of charity and he, those of the apostolate. I rejoice over it, since I make use of all your offerings for all the Church.
The Church of my Jesus is like a body bloodied from head to toe. How necessary it is to know how to suffer and to offer up forgetting personal interests!
Yes, children, let this be my announcement that I give you with my heart full of desire: work for the Church! It won't cost you anything, it won't be hard for you. When one loves, love gives you wings. You will see how much progress you will make in perfection and how important your work will be.
I bless all and especially those who exercise charity in a way so great as to fill all their free moments of the day. The poor that you help shall be your best friends who will intercede for you in Heaven."
