The Nuptial Garment of Grace
Maria says: (Maria Mother and Teacher, Vol. 1) ”
My children, when grace dwells in a soul it is God who, present in it, works, loves, thinks, and the soul gains infinite merits for a world timeless and rich with endless joy.
My children, I am the Mother of Divine Grace: through me comes to you that river of treasures that the Blood of Christ bought back for you. I watch over all men and I assist them, so that grace may increase in everyone and so that all may reach that degree of grace to which a degree of glory corresponds.
It will again be me who will place the crown on the head of those souls who correspond to my work and love me above every created thing, as Mother of Jesus, Son of God. To them I shall say: “Come my daughter, my soul, my beloved, come to receive that crown that was prepared for you from all eternity (Mt 25:41).”
My beloved children, in Paradise an innumerable host of saints await you, who have preferred to renounce life rather than lose the nuptial garment of grace, that would have allowed them to enter there.
Paradise will be yours if you will learn to be generous and strong, if prayer will accompany your work and your life, if you will not be lost in the fog of doubt and in the darkness of error, but you shall have sought the light that comes to you from above, if at the end of your day, taking a look at the journey done, you are able to say: “I have made every effort to keep the baptismal stole white”; that stole which at every Confession you can render truly white like the day of Baptism.
And at the end of your life you can thank God with joy for having been able to traffic the precious talent of grace, received by you with the faith as a gift on the day of your Baptism.
I pray with you and I bless you.”
The thoughts, the reflections and the meditations in this booklet, were inspired by Our Mother Maria, Mother of Jesus, to Carmela Negri Carabelli. They are, however, addressed to all those souls, who, desirous to love the Lord, seek to put into practice his teachings and to live the Christian life more perfectly. May Jesus bless these pages and those who read them with the desire to improve themselves, granting the help of his grace.
