MY EVENING REFLECTION
'Live Your Consecration,' is the title of this Message #86.
Our Lady tells Fr. Gobbi that he was chosen by Her to make everyone, especially Her priest-sons, to understand the wonders of Her Immaculate Heart. And what wonders that Heart contains! At Fatima, where the Immaculate Heart of Mary was revealed so fully to the world as a means of salvation for all the world and their return to God ("My Immaculate Heart will be your safe refuge", Our Lady said at Fatima), has been ignored, not listened to.
Because of this, the darkness will deepen and sufferings will increase throughout the world! Even the crisis within the Church will also deepen to the point of an open rebellion by many priests. These are certainly sorrowful times for the Sorrowful Mother! Another sword could be added to the Seven Sorrows of Our Lady, schism!
Meanwhile, Marxist atheism has contaminated everything and everywhere! Many of Our Lady's children have lost the faith, many deny the divinity of Jesus the Lord, the Church is threatened with a break-up of its hierarchical structure and the Pope is attacked as just another person and not the Rock which the Church is built on!
But Mother Mary wants to pour out the mercy of Her Heart upon all Her children. She will do this through Her priest-sons who will allow Her to act through them. But first they must renew their consecration to Her Immaculate Heart. That's all She asks of them. If they live their consecration, their lives will be transformed, they will see, think, pray and love the way Our Lady does. They will become ever littler, more simple, and more humble.
The more the world denies and doubts, the more Her priest-sons will believe and trust! The more the Church is abandoned and hated by its children, the more Our Lady's priests will love it more and more, especially a deep filial love of the Pope! They will unite their cross with his and share his sufferings. Yes, Our Lady says, let it be you, O priests consecrated to My Immaculate Heart who are the closest to the heart of the Pope.
Yes, we must pray for the Pope; suffer with him; be always with him; listen to him; put his instructions into practice; spread his unheeded teachings! My friends this is especially true today as the Holy Father's Motu Proprio takes effect. Already there are Cardinals, bishops and priests violently opposed to this wonderful gift for the Church. This may be the beginning of our darkest hour. The only light will be the Pope and those united with him! Our fidelity and safe refuge in the Immaculate Heart will win the battle!
