The Brief Day of Life
Maria says: (Maria Mother and Teacher, Vol. 1) ” My children, the dawn comes, then the sun, then the afternoon and the evening. So is your life, a brief day that has just come out and already for many of you it draws to a close.
My Jesus teaches you to live well your day in the fulfillment of the will of God. In this way you will merit to hear said to you as the good thief: “Today you shall be with Me in Paradise (Lk 2343)”
Paradise, children, is so beautiful that, if to reach it you were to suffer all the sorrows of the world, it always will be worth the while.
My children, one thing alone you must do: avoid sin.
Today you are all beautiful, grace shines in your souls because, even if someone has some fault in the soul, already he detests it and has repented over it.
Well then, preserve the grace. My Jesus wants you pure as little children out of the baptismal font. Preserve this precious treasure. When the demon flatters you or exasperates you, invoke me. No hostile power can overcome my power. My strength comes from being full of grace, that is it depends from I being the dwelling of the living God. Have faith in me and do not fear.
If the demon tempts you, if he puts hatred and resentments in your hearts, if he invites you to commit evil actions, if he displays the good that you do with the help of God as if it were your own, invoke me.
I am the most attentive mother. Keep the peace. All that divides, that agitates, that disturbs, does not come from God. All that discourages, that demoralizes and which sees all things black does not come from God. Learn to watch.
Be serene, be disposed to forgiveness. The good resemble God. They bring Him into the world and make Him loved.
My children, whom I nourish, nurture and guard, receive my affectionate embrace.
Make yourselves consolers of all those who suffer, by prayer, by word and by your charity. Every time that you go to visit a sick one, I shall send my angels with you so that they may suggest to you the most sweet words to the comfort of whoever suffers.
Everything even the littlest that you do to the poor, my Jesus holds it as being done to himself, because everyone of them is a living and suffering member of his body.
Children, I bless you all.”
