APPARITION IN GARABANDAL (SPAIN)







Our Lady Of Carmel Appeared To Four Girls 
In Garabandal, Spain from 1961-65. Loli, Conchita, Jacinta and Mari-Cruz.





Her First Message to the world
was on October 18, 1961:

Many SACRIFICES must be made... Much PENANCE must be done... We must pay many visits to the Blessed Sacrament... But first of all we must be VERY GOOD... Already the Cup is Filling, and if we do not change we shall be punished.

Conchita, Loli, Jacinta and Mari-Cruz




Second Message June 19, 1962

Tuesday, (June 19, 1962) "Loli and I were in the calleja (place near the first apparition) and She (The Virgin) told us a MESSAGE FOR THE WHOLE WORLD AND IT IS THIS: The Virgin has said to us that we are not awaiting the CHASTISEMENT (because we are disregarding Her First Message by the way we live)...BUT without awaiting it, IT WILL COME BECAUSE THE WORLD HAS NOT CHANGED... and now with this (Message) She has said it twice and we do not heed Her BECAUSE THE WORLD IS WORSE AND MUST CHANGE MUCH but has not changed at all. PREPARE YOURSELVES CONFESS for the CHASTISEMENT will come soon. The world continues the same and I think that the world has not changed at all.
What a pity that it does not change. SOON THE GREAT CHASTISEMENT WILL COME IF IT (the world) DOES NOT CHANGE. This MESSAGE was given to Loli and me."

Jacinta Gonzales




Third Message June 23, 1962

"The Virgin has told us:
The world continues the same...That it has not changed at all. FEW WILL SEE GOD. They are so few that it causes The Virgin much Sorrow. What a pity that it does not change. The Virgin told us that the Chastisement is coming seeing that the world is not changing. The cup is filling up. How sad the Virgin was although She didn't let us see it because She loves us so much and She suffers alone. She is so good! BE GOOD EVERYONE SO THAT THE VIRGIN WILL BE HAPPY. She told us that We who are good should pray for those who are bad. Let us pray to God for the world for those who do not know Him. Be good...be very good everyone"

Maria Dolores Mazon, Jacinta Gonzalez 13 years old



Our Lady's Message of June 18, 1965

Since my Message of October 18, 1961 has not been complied with and has not been made much known to the world, I will tell you that this is the last one. Before the chalice was filling now it is overflowing. MANY CARDINALS, MANY BISHOPS, AND MANY PRIESTS ARE ON THE PATH OF PERDITION AND THEY TAKE MANY SOULS WITH THEM. TO THE EUCHARIST, THERE IS GIVEN LESS AND LESS IMPORTANCE. We should avoid the Wrath of God on us by our good efforts. If you ask pardon with your sincere soul God will pardon you. It is I, Your Mother, who through the intercession of St. Michael, wish to say that you amend, that you are already in the last warnings and that I love you much and do not want your condemnation. Ask us sincerely and we will give to you. You should sacrifice more. Think of the Passion of Jesus.

Conchita Gonzales



The Beginning
Garabandal is a small village in northern Spain, in the Santander province, near the Picos de Europa mountains, a rugged and beautiful setting. Its full name is San Sebastian of Garabandal. It is located 600 meters above sea level, some 57 miles from the capital of the province. To get there one must climb steep, poor roads. No more than 300 people live in Garabandal. The town is impressively quiet. There is no doctor in the town and no resident pastor at the parish church. The pastor from Cosio, the next town down the road, used to celebrate Mass there on Sunday.
In the evening of June 18, 1961, four girls were playing on the outskirts of the town - Conchita Gonzalez, Maria Dolores (Mari-loli) Mazon, Jacinta Gonzalez and Maria Cruz Gonzalez (not related despite having the same name.) Maria Cruz was eleven, the others twelve, and all were from poor families.

Suddenly they heard a loud noise, like thunder, and saw before them the bright figure of the Archangel Michael. On the following days the Archangel appeared to them again in the same place. He announced that on July 2 they would see Our Lady. This was the beginning of the Garabandal events.

Our Lady of Carmel
The news spread quickly through the region. July 2 was a Sunday and the town was crowded. There were people from all social levels and very many from out of town, among them several physicians and priests. At six in the evening the girls went to the place where the Angel had appeared, and to the surprise of the crowd they entered into ecstasy. Our Lady appeared to them accompanied by two angels, one being St. Michael. The girls described the vision as follows:

"She is dressed in a white robe with a blue mantle and a crown of golden stars. Her hands are slender. There is a brown scapular on her right arm, except when she carried the Child Jesus in her arms. Her hair, deep nut-brown, is parted in the center. Her face is long, with a fine nose. Her mouth is very pretty with lips a bit thin. She looks like a girl of eighteen. She is rather tall. There is no voice like hers. No woman is just like her, either in the voice or the face or anything else. " Our Lady Manifested herself as Our Lady of Carmel."
At times the wind rustled her long hair which reached down to her waist. The girls spoke with the Virgin with the utmost naturalness. "We were telling her," they said, "about our tasks, how we were going to the meadows..." and "She smiled at the little things we told her." Our Lady showed them how to treat her: "Like children who speak with their mother and tell her everything...Children who rejoice to see her when they have not seen her for a while."

More Apparitions
After this first apparition there were many more. During 1961 and 1962 Our Lady appeared several times each week. The four girls did not always receive the apparition together. Sometimes only one, other times two or three of them saw the vision. Nor was it always at the same hour of the day. Our Lady appeared many times at night and even early in the morning, in an attitude of sacrifice and penance, at the same hours when Our Lord is most offended by the sins of men. Even so, the girls would arise the following morning, as early as usual, to work in the fields, carrying bundles of grass or wood, or tending the cattle and sheep, without showing signs of fatigue.

The Ecstasies
When the vision appeared, the girls fell instantaneously on their knees, striking the sharp rocks with a loud noise that was frightening, yet they showed no signs of injury. The expression on their faces was suddenly transformed. Their look became extraordinarily beautiful, sweet, one of profound mysticism. There are no words that can properly describe the change. They were completely absorbed in their rapture, unaware of anyone or any material thing around them except for each other. They did no react to pricks, burns or blows. All attempts to distract them failed. Powerful beams of strong light were focused on them, yet their eyes did not even flicker, blink or show any signs of discomfort. Quite the contrary, their eyes remained wide open , expressing a look of intense joy. However, when the girls returned to the normal state, they immediately shielded their eyes from those bright lights which under normal circumstances should have caused permanent eye damage.

During these ecstasies, which lasted from a few minutes to several hours, time did not seem to count. On many occasions they remained immobile in off-balance, beautiful "sculptured-like" positions, heads tilted back, eyes looking up, kneeling on the rocks or bare-legged in the snow. At the end of the ecstasy, they showed no signs of excitation or nervousness, just deep, profound peace and joy.

Participation of the Observers
Many visitors and villagers gave the girls various objects, such as bibles, rosaries, scapulars, medals, crucifixes, wedding rings, etc. for Our Lady to kiss. In ecstasy, the girls raised them up to Her and She kissed them. Then guided by Our Lady, the girls returned the items to their correct owners, even in cases where the person had first confided the object to someone else so the child did not know who the real owner was. Things "kissed" by Our Lady of Carmel have been the instruments of very special favors. Occasionally, these have emitted a mysterious fragrance like that of roses. "Our Lady says", Conchita wrote, "that Jesus will work miracles through the objects kissed by her. Those who carry or wear them with faith and confidence will suffer their purgatory here on earth."

While in ecstasy, the girls often carried a crucifix in their hand which Our Lady had kissed, and as She directed, they extended it for observers to kiss, blessing them with it at the same time. On seeing the girls approach, many witnesses experienced such a tremendous spiritual awakening, that it produced a very deep interior emotion in them. They cried unashamed tears, admitting the supernatural nature of what they were seeing, hearing and feeling within them, the very presence of the Mother of God. The conversion of unbelievers and those of different faiths, of souls suffering from religious indifference, the conversions of many sinners, all of which have experienced an increase in faith, hope, and charity.

New Phenomena
Soon after Our Lady of Carmel appeared, the ecstatic walks began. The girls went throughout the entire village - up and down stairways, in and out of homes, at all hours of the day and night, avoiding obstacles without faltering, guided solely by the vision. Frequently, they ran at great speed down the steep mountainside, even backwards, so that it was impossible for the astonished spectators to follow them. Their bodies did not seem to be subject to the law of gravity, but endowed with some sort of spiritual agility. During their high-speed running, the objects entrusted to the girls were sometimes lost. However, upon seeing Our Blessed Mother again, they asked as to their whereabouts and She told them where to find them.

The Miracle of the Host
Above the village is a steep hill on which stands a cluster of 9 pine trees. "One day," said the girls, "an angel with a golden chalice appeared to us at "The Pines". He told us to recite the Confiteor and then he gave us Holy Communion." This wonderful favor happened many times during those days when the parish priest of the neighboring town of Cosio could not go to Garabandal. It was possible to film some of these Communions, using very bright light. The movements of the lips and tongues of the girls gave the exact idea of a real Communion. On May 2, 1962, the angel told Conchita that God would perform a miracle so that all people would believe: they would see the Sacred Host on her tongue at the moment of Communion and that she should make this known fifteen days in advance. On July 18, 1962, the town was crowded with visitors. At midnight Conchita, who had remained in her home continually surrounded by visitors, entered into ecstasy and went out into the street. At a short distance from her house she fell down on her knees in the midst of the crowd. Lanterns were focused on her. She put out her tongue upon which nothing was resting, as everyone could see. In a few moments, a white host appeared on her tongue and remained there for a few minutes. A businessman from Barcelona, Don Alejandro Damians, standing less than three feet from the girl, secured some very good moving pictures. In the film there appeared 79 pictures of the extraordinary scene. This same witness wrote a report which he submitted to the Bishop of Santander, together with a copy of the film. The number of witnesses on this occasion was very large: there were people from different cultures and social classes. Don Benjamin Gomez, a farmer from Potes, wrote:

"I was standing at less than an arm's length from the girl. I saw very well that her tongue was completely clean of everything. The girl did not move. Suddenly there appeared on it the Sacred Host. It was white, shining and resplendent. It reminded one of the snow when the sun strikes it with its brilliant rays. The girl's face was beautifully transformed into heavenly ecstasy. Her face was angelic I can certify that she was there motionless, moving neither hands nor tongue. In this motionless position she received the Sacred Host. We had enough time to contemplate this marvelous phenomenon without any undue haste, and we were many who saw it. I was an unbeliever until that day. I am not such a Catholic as to be subject to any hallucination or imagination. I had not concerned myself about God until then except to offend Him. I went to confession in April but previous to that time I had not gone to confession for twenty-three years."

The miracle of the host is a true confirmation of the apparitions of Our Blessed Mother in Garabandal and of the reality of her message. But a still greater miracle has been promised.
A Greater Miracle to Come
Conchita has clearly said that Our Lady has promised a greater miracle in Garabandal so that all may believe the apparitions and be obedient to the message. "As the punishment which we deserve for the sins of the world is great, the miracle must also be a great one, for the world needs it." It will occur on a Thursday on the feast day of a saint devoted to the Eucharist, at 8:30 in the evening, and will last for about one quarter of an hour. It will also coincide with a great event in the Church. The sick who come to Garabandal on that day will be cured, unbelievers will be converted. There will remain a permanent sign at "The Pines" as a proof of Our Lady's tremendous love for all her children.

"The sign that will remain," says Conchita, "will be able to be seen, photographed and televised but it will not be able to be touched. It will appear clearly that it is something not of this world, but of God."

Conchita has been granted permission by Our Lady to announce the date of the miracle eight days in advance. With the present means of communication and travel, eight days are sufficient for people around the world to gather. The day of The miracle may be the last opportunity given us by God and may be also Our Lady's last effort to save the world from the punishment already threatened.

Some time ago Conchita wrote, "The Blessed Virgin will not allow me to reveal the nature of The miracle although I already know it. Neither can I reveal the date of it, which I know, until eight days before it is to happen." Before The miracle takes place Our Lady has said that all mankind will receive a warning from heaven.

The Warning
Conchita wrote: "The warning comes directly from God and will be visible to the whole world and from any place where anyone many happen to be. It will be like the revelation of our sins and it will be seen and felt by everyone, believer and unbeliever alike irrespective of whatever religion he may belong to. It will be seen and felt in all parts of the world and by every person."

It will happen in the sky, no one can prevent it form happening. We will even prefer to be dead rather than to pass through this Warning It will not kill us. It will be a "correction" of our conscience. It will cause great fear and will make us reflect within ourselves on the consequences of our own personal sins. It will be like a warning of the punishment to come. In this way the world will be offered a means of purification to prepare itself for the extraordinary grace of the Great Miracle.

Jacinta was told by Our Blessed Mother "that the warning would come when conditions were at their worst." The date was not revealed to the visionaries, however Mari-Loli does know the year; and she said that The Miracle will happen within one year after The Warning.

The Punishment
If we do not pay attention to the message, the punishment announced by Our Lady will be visited on the whole world after The miracle. During one of their ecstasies the girls were heard praying for the innocent children but, nevertheless, they shed tears at the same time. Since the day they learned about the punishment they have developed a great spirit of sacrifice. They pray very much for sinners and for priests. They often say that if priests are not what they should be many souls will be lost.

Conchita has written: "I cannot reveal what kind of punishment it is except that it will be a result of the direct intervention of God, which makes it more terrible and fearful than anything we can imagine. It will be less painful for innocent babies to die a natural death than for those babies to die because of the punishment. All Catholics should go to confession before the punishment and the others should repent of their sins. When I saw IT (the punishment), I felt a great fear even though at the same time I was seeing Our Blessed Mother. The punishment, if it comes, will come after the miracle"

When Our Lady spoke to the girls of the punishment, her face assumed a look of great sadness. The girls revealed: "We have never seen her look so serious. When she said the words 'The cup is already filling', she spoke in a very low voice."

A New Message
On January 1, 1965, Conchita had an apparition of Our Lady who told her that on June 18, the fourth anniversary of the apparitions, she would be given another message. Thus, six months before the actual date Conchita revealed this promise of Our Lady.

On June 18 more than two thousand people gathered in Garabandal - French, Germans, English, Italians, Americans and Polish were among the people who joined the groups from different parts of Spain. The Spanish were in the minority, perhaps due to the fact the apparitions had received practically no publicity. The French constituted the largest group. There were journalists, TV cameras from the Italian TV network, and cameramen from NO-DO (the Spanish official documentary news program). Leaving her house at 11:30 p.m. Conchita walked to the road leading to the Pines to the place called the Cuadro. There she was rapt in ecstasy which lasted sixteen minutes. St. Michael appeared to her and delivered the message from Our Lady, which was made public the next morning. It reads:

Message which Our Lady has given to the world through the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel. The angel said, "Since my message of October 18 has not been made known to the world and has not been fulfilled, I tell you that this is my last message. Previously, the cup was being filled. Now it is overflowing. Many Cardinals, many Bishops and many Priests are on the road to perdition and with them they are bringing many souls. The Holy Eucharist is being given less importance (honor). We must avoid God's anger with us by our efforts at amendment. If we beg pardon with sincerity of soul, He will forgive us. I, your Mother, through the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel, want to tell you to amend your lives. You are already receiving one of the last warnings. I love you very much and do not want your condemnation. Ask sincerely and we will give to you. You should make more sacrifices. Think of the Passion of Jesus."
From this message one can clearly sense Our Lady's disappointment at the scant attention paid to her message of October 18, 1961. The Blessed Mother shows her motherly concern for priests and the need to place the Holy Eucharist where it belongs - at the center of the mysteries of our Faith. To urge us to sacrifice, she recommends meditation on the Passion of Our Lord.

Our Blessed mother has told us this is her last message. Because of this she wants all her children to listen to her plea before The warning and The miracle. For the reason that she wishes it, we should propagate this urgent message as widely as possible.

Father Luis Marie Andreu
The only other person to see Our Blessed Mother at Garabandal was a 38-year old Spanish Jesuit Priest, Father Luis Marie Andreu. On August 8, 1961, Father Luis was Among the spectators at The Pines when suddenly he became an integral part of the Garabandal drama. He was heard to say, Miracle! Miracle!" Not only did he see The Virgin Mary, but he was shown the forthcoming Great Miracle. The children in ecstasy understood Our Lady to say to him: "You will soon be with me." Although, he had never had any history of serious illness, he died that same night of complete joy. His final words were:

"Oh! What a sweet and lovely mother we have in heaven...how happy I am... what a favor The Blessed Virgin has bestowed on me. How fortunate we are to have a mother like her in heaven!. There is no reason to fear the supernatural life. The girls have given us an example of how we must act with the Blessed Virgin. There is no doubt, in my mind that the things involving the girls are true. Why should the Blessed Virgin have chosen us? This is the happiest day of my life."
With those words, Father bowed his head and died. Our Lady has said, "that on the day AFTER the Miracle his body will be found to be incorrupt."
Our Blessed Mother showed special attention and concern for all priests, repeatedly asking that they come to Garabandal. She gave the girls the ability to recognize them even when they came dressed as laymen, revealing the state of their souls. She taught the children that priests were more important even than angels because by means of their ordination they have the power to change bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

The Last Apparition
On Saturday, November 13, 1965 Conchita had her last apparition of Our Lady in Garabandal. She gives the details in a letter of which the following is a literal translation:

"One day in church Our Lady told me in a locution that I would see her on Saturday, November 13, at the pines; it would be a special apparition to kiss the religious objects so that I could give them away afterwards. I was anxious for this day to arrive so that I could see again the Blessed Virgin and the Child Jesus who have implanted in my life the seed of God's happiness.
It was raining but it did not matter to me. I went up to the Pines carrying with me the many rosaries which people have given to me to distribute them... As I was going up I was talking to myself, being sorry for my defects, desiring not to fall into them again, for it gave me much worry to appear before the Mother of God without wiping them out.

When I arrived at the pines, I began to take the rosaries out and heard a sweet voice, that of the Virgin, which you always distinguish among others, calling me by my name. I answered her 'what?' At that very moment I saw Her with the Child in her arms. She was dressed as usual and smiling. I told Her, 'I have come to bring you the rosaries so that you can kiss them.' She said to me, 'I can see it.' I had been chewing gum, but as I was seeing Her I did not chew it; I placed the gum on a tooth. She must have noticed for She said, 'Conchita why don't you get rid of the chewing gum and offer it up as a sacrifice for the glory of my Son?' I, a bit ashamed of myself, took it out and threw it on the ground. She said afterwards, 'Do you remember what I told you on your saint's day - that you would suffer much on earth?... Now I repeat it to you. Have confidence in Us. Then I added, 'How unworthy I am, O Mother of us, of so many graces received through you, and now you have come to me to help me carry the little cross I have." She said, 'Conchita, I am not coming only for you but I am coming for all my children, with a desire to get them closer to Our Hearts.' She asked for the things I was carrying. 'Give them to me so that I can kiss all you are carrying with you.' And I gave her everything. I was bringing with me also a small crucifix which I gave her to kiss. She kissed it and said , 'Put it in the hands of the Child Jesus.' And I did that and He said nothing. I said 'This cross I intend to take with me when I go to the convent.' But he did not reply. After kissing everything She commented, 'My son, through this kiss, will work wonders. Distribute them to the others..." Of course I will do it.

After all this she requested that I tell her all the petitions for others which I had received. She said, 'Conchita, tell me, tell me things about my children. I have all of them under my cloak.' And I commented, 'It is too small and there is no room for all of us.' She smiled at this.

'Do You know, Conchita, why I did not come personally on June 18 to give you the message for the world? Because it pained me to say it myself, but I have to say it to you for your own good and, if you fulfill it, for God's glory. I love you very much and I desire your salvation; to gather you all around God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Conchita, won't you respond to this?' I said, 'If I could be always seeing you, yes; but otherwise I can't because I am very bad...' 'You do all you can,' Our Lady added, 'and We will help you, as well as my daughters Loli, Jacinta and Maricruz...'

She did not stay long with me. She also said, 'This will be the last time you see me here, but I will always be with all my children.' Afterwards she added, 'Conchita, why don't you go often to visit my Son in the Most Blessed Sacrament? Why do you let yourself be carried away by laziness and not go to visit Him Who is waiting for you day an night?'

As I have written above, it was raining hard. Our Lady and the Child did not get wet. I was not aware it was raining while seeing them, but when I stopped seeing them I was soaked. I also told her, 'O how happy I am when I see you. Why don't you take me with you right now?' She answered, 'Remember what I told you on your saint's day. When you go before God you must show Him your hands filled with good works done by you for your brothers and for the glory of God; now your hands are empty.'

That's all, I spent a happy moment with my mother from heaven, my best friend, and with the Child Jesus. I have stopped seeing them but not feeling them close. Again they have sown in my soul great peace, joy and a desire to conquer my defects so that I will be able to love, with all my strength, the hearts of Jesus and Mary who love us so much..."

Conchita ends with this: "The Blessed Virgin Mary told me before that Jesus does not want to send the punishment in order to distress us but in order to help us and reproach us because we pay no attention to Him. And the warning will be sent in order to purify us for the miracle in which he will show us His great love, and in order that we may fulfill the message."

With this apparition of Our Lady, the cycle of apparitions in Garabandal closed. It will be definitely confirmed on a Thursday at 8:30 p.m. when The miracle takes place. This will mark the beginning of a new era in the history of the salvation of mankind.

APPARITION IN CARAVAGGIO (ITALY)


Apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary at CARAVAGGIO
ITALY, 1432



In May 26,1432, at five in the evening, a young mother named Giannetta, native of the town of Caravaggio, known by everyone for her most virtuous manners, her Christian piety, and her sincerely honest life, was outside the village along the road towards Misano, and was deep in thought about how she could carry home the bundles of grass that she had cut for her animals. Suddenly she saw coming down from the sky and resting right, near her a beautiful and astonishing Lady, of mgjestic stature, graceful face, venerable appearance and indescribable beauty, clothed in a light blue dress and her head covered with a white veil. Struck by the very
dignified appearance of the noble Lady, Giannetta exclaimed astonished: "Virgin Mary!". And the Lady immediately said to her: "Do not fear, daughter, because it is really me. Stop and kneel in prayer". Giannetta answered: "My Lady, now I do not have time. My livestock waits for this grass". Then the Most Blessed Virgin spoke to her again: "Now do what I desire from you...". And saying this she placed her hand on Giannetta's shoulder and had her kneel. She continued: "Listen well and remember, because I desire that, wherever it will be possible, you report with your own words or have others say this...".And with tears in her eyes, that according to the testimony of Giannetta were, or seemed to her like glittering gold, she added "My Son the Most High Omnipotent intended to destroy this land as a result of the iniquity of the people, because they do what is evil more every day, and they foil from sin to sin. But for seven years I have implored from my Son mercy for their faults. Therefore I want that you tell one and all to fast on bread and water every Friday in honor of my Son, and after vespers to celebrate every Saturday in devotion to me. They must dedicate that half day to me in gratitude for the many and great favors obtained from my Son through my intercession". The Virgin Mary said all those words with open arms and as in distress. Giannetta said: "The people will not believe me". The most clement Virgin responded: "Get up, do not fear. You report all that I requested you. I will confirm your words with such great signs that no one will doubt that you have said the truth". Having said this, and after making the Sign of the Cross on Giannetta, Our Lady disappeared before her eyes. Returning immediately to Caravaggio, Giannetta reported all that she had seen and heard. Therefore many people - believing her - began to visit that place, and found there a spring never seen before by anyone. Then several sick people went to the spring, and afterwards in ever greater numbers, trusting in the power of God. And the news spread that the sick came back freed from the infirmities from which they suffered, through the intercession and the merits of the most glorious Virgin Mother of God and crur Lord Jesus Christ The weeping of Our Lady at Caravaggio, like also the message which indeed must be long meditated on, has almost never been pointed out. However Giannetta was touched and had understood those tears and the distress of the Mother of Christ; the Virgin Maiy speaks with team in her eyes. It is true that they seem to her like glittering gold, but it is because they cannot escape affecting her. With open arms and in distress the Virgin shares with Giannetta her pain and at the same time her own intercessory compassion. The sorrow of the Virgin is the sorrow of her Son, provoked up to threatening punishment for the sins of people as in the Gospel:"... If you do not repent, you will all perish as they did" (Lk 13:3,5). And there was a reason, ifwe think of those years cf troubled history for the Church and the violence of that time, perpetrated in the land of Caravaggio itself Regarding the political situation in the territory of Gera d’Adda it must be remembered that since the beginning of 1431, the hostilities between the Venetian Republic and the Duchy of Milan were rekindled. Caravaggio will be an important crossroad for many years during the entire XV Century. Between 1432 and 1441, between 1448 and 1453 Caravaggio comes and goes under the rule of Milan and Venice, and is made a scene of battles, ceasefires, and negotiations of "chapters'1. Gera d’Adda will remain with Milan in relative tranquility until 1499. Then for about another ten years it will return under Venice.

MESSAGE FROM GOD THE FATHER TO THE MOTHER ELISABETTA RAVASIO (NAO PUBLICAR AINDA)

THE FATHER´S MESSAGE
Part 1

July 1,1932: Feast of the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ

Here, finally, is the day, blessed for ever, the day the celestial Father promised!
Today the long days of preparation are over, and I feel close, so close, to the coming of my Father and the Father of all men.
A few minutes of prayer, and then what spiritual joys! I was overwhelmed by the desire to see Him and hear Him!
My heart, burning with love, opened up with such great confidence that I realized that, until then, I had never been so trusting with anyone.
The thought of my Father made me, as it were, madly happy.
Finally I began to hear singing. Angels came to announce this glad arrival! Their songs were so beautiful that I decided to note them down as soon as possible.
This harmony ceased and then came a procession of the elect, the cherubim and seraphim, with God, our Creator and our Father.
Prostrate, with my face to the ground, sunk in my own nothingness, I said the Magnificat. Immediately afterwards, the Father told me to sit close to Him and write what He had decided to say to men.
The entire heavenly court who had accompanied Him vanished. Only the Father remained with me and, before sitting, He said:

«I have already told you and now I say it again: I cannot give My beloved Son another time to prove My love for men! I am now coming among them in order to love them and to make them know this love, assuming their image, their poverty.

Look, now I am putting aside My crown and all My glory to take on the appearance of an ordinary man!»

Having assumed the appearance of an ordinary man by placing His crown and His glory at His Feet, He took the globe of the world and held it to His Heart, supporting it with His left Hand. He then sat next to me.

I can say but a few words about His arrival and about the appearance He deigned to assume, and about His love! In my ignorance I do not have words to express what He
revealed to me. He said:

«Peace and salvation to this house and to the whole world! May My power, My love and My Holy Spirit touch men’s hearts, so that all mankind may turn to salvation and come to its Father, Who seeks it, to love and to save it!

Let My Vicar Pius XI understand that these are days of salvation and blessing.
Let him not fail to take this opportunity to call the attention of the children to their Father, Who is coming to help them in this life and to prepare their everlasting happiness.
I have chosen this day to begin My work among men because today is the feast of the Precious Blood of My Son Jesus. I intend to bathe in this Blood the work I am beginning, so that it may bear great fruit among all mankind. 

This is the real purpose of My coming:


1) I am coming to banish the excessive fear that My creatures have of Me, and to show them that My joy lies in being known and loved by My children, that is, by all mankind, present and future.


2) I am coming to bring hope to men and nations. How many have long since lost it!

This hope will make them live in peace and security, working for their salvation.

3) I am coming to make Myself known just as I am, so that men’s trust may increase together with their love for Me, their Father. I have but one concern: to watch over all men and love them as My children.



The painter delights in contemplating the picture he has painted. In the same way, it is My pleasure and delight to come among men, the masterpiece of My creation!
Time presses. I wish men to know as soon as possible that I love them and that I feel the greatest happiness in being with them and talking with them, like a father with his children.
I am the Eternal One, and when I was alone, I had already thought of using all My power to create beings in My image. But material creation had to come first, so that these beings could find their means of sustenance; it was then that I created the world. I filled it with all the things I knew would be necessary to men: air, sun and
rain, and many other things that I knew to be necessary for their life.
In the end, man was created! I was pleased with My handiwork. Man sins, but it is precisely then that My infinite generosity shows itself.
In the Old Testament, I created and chose prophets to live among men. To them I told My desires, My sorrows and My joys, so that they could communicate them to
everyone.
The more evil grew, the more My goodness urged Me to communicate with just souls so that they could transmit My commands to those who were creating disorder.
Thus, I was sometimes obliged to be strict in order to reprove them; not to punish them - that would only have done harm - but to take them away from vice and lead
them to their Father and their Creator, Whom they had forgotten and ignored in their ingratitude. Later, evil overwhelmed men’s hearts to such an extent that I was
compelled to send calamities upon the world to purify men through suffering, the destruction of their possessions, or even their death. These were the Flood, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, man’s wars against man, etc.
I have always wished to remain in this world among men. So, during the Flood, I was close to Noah, the only just man then. In the other calamities, also, I always
found a just man with whom I could stay and, through him, I lived among the men of that time, and it has always been thus.
The world has often been purified of its corruption because of My infinite goodness towards humanity. I continued to choose certain souls in whom I was
pleased, because through them I could be happy with My creatures, men.
I promised the world a Messiah. I did all I could to prepare His coming, showing Myself in the figures that represented Him, even thousands of years before His
coming!

For who is this Messiah? Whence does He come? What will He do on earth?

Whom does He represent?
The Messiah is God. 

Who is God?

God is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Whence does He come? Or rather, who ordered Him to come among men?
It was I, His Father, God.
Whom is He to represent on earth?
His Father, God.
What is He to do on earth?
He will make the Father, God, known and loved.

Did He not say:

“Do you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?”
(“Nesciebatis quia in his quae Patris mei sunt oportet me esse?”
St. Luke, ch. 2, v. 49).
“I have come only to do the will of My Father.”
“Whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give you.”
“You will pray to Him like this: ‘Our Father, Who art in heaven...’,
and elsewehere, since He came to glorify the Father and to make Him known to men, He says:
 “Whoever sees Me, sees the Father.”
“I am in the Father and the Father is in Me.”
“No one comes to the Father except through Me” (“Nemo venit ad Patrem nisi per me” St. John, ch. 14, v. 6)
“Whoever is with Me is also with My Father”, etc.?

Realize then, o men, that for all eternity I have had but one desire, to make Myself known to men and be loved by them. I wish to stay for ever with them.

Do you want an authentic proof of this desire that I have just expressed?
Why did I command Moses to build a tabernacle and the ark of the covenant, if not to come and dwell, as a Father, a brother, a close friend, with My creatures, men? This was My ardent desire. In spite of this, they have forgotten Me and offended Me with countless sins. I gave Moses My commandments to remind them, in spite of everything, of God, their Father, and of His sole wish, to save them. They were supposed to observe the commandments and thereby remember their infinitely good Father, always intent upon their present and eternal salvation.
All this was forgotten and men sank into error and fear, considering that the observance of the commandments as I had transmitted them to Moses was too taxing. They made up other laws in accordance with their whims, in order to observe them more easily. Little by little, in the exaggerated fear they had of Me, they forgot Me more and more and heaped outrages upon Me.
Yet My love for these men, My children, never quite ceased. When I realized that neither the patriarchs nor the prophets had been able to make Me known and loved by men, I decided to come Myself.
But how could I come among them? There was no other way than to come Myself, in the second Person of My divinity.
Would men know Me? Would they listen to Me?
Nothing in the future was hidden from Me; I Myself answered these two questions:
“They will ignore My presence, even though they will be near Me. In My Son they will treat Me cruelly, notwithstanding all the good He will do for them. In My Son they will speak ill of Me, they will crucify Me to bring about My death.”
Shall I stop because of this? No, My love for My children, men, is too great. 

I did not stop there. Understand well that I loved you, as it were, more than My beloved Son, or rather, more than Myself.

What I am telling you is so true that, if one of My creatures had been enough to atone for the sins of other men through a life and death similar to those of My Son, I would have hesitated. Why? Because I would have betrayed My love by making a beloved creature suffer, rather than suffering Myself, in My Son. I would never have wished My children to suffer.
This, then, in brief, is the story of My love until My coming among men through My Son.
Most men know of all these events, but they fail to grasp the essential thing: that love was the guiding principle in it all!
Yes, it is love. This is what I want to impress upon you. Now this love has been forgotten. I want to remind you of it, so that you can learn to know Me as I am, so
that you will not be, like slaves, afraid of a Father Who loves you so much.
You see, in this story we are only at the first day of the first century, and I would like to bring it up to the present time, the twentieth century.
Oh, how My paternal love has been forgotten by Men! Yet I love you so tenderly!
In My Son, that is to say, in the Person of My Son made man, what have I not done!
Divinity is veiled in this humanity, it is shrunk, impoverished, humiliated. With My Son Jesus I led a life of sacrifice and work. I received His prayers, that man might have a clearly indicated path along which to walk always in justice, so as to reach Me safely!
Of course, I can understand My children’s weaknesses! Because of this, I asked My Son to give them the means to get up again after they have fallen. These means
will help them to purify themselves from their sins, so that they may still be the children of My love. They are, chiefly, the seven Sacraments. And the greatest
means of securing your salvation, despite your falls, is the Cross, My Son’s Blood poured out upon you every moment, if you so wish, both in the Sacrament of
Penance and in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
My dear children, I have lavished these gifts upon you with special graces for twenty centuries, but with what miserable results!
How many of My creatures, who become children of My love through My Son, have quickly thrown themselves into the eternal abyss! Truly, they have not known
My infinite goodness; I love you so very much| (A favourite expression of Mother Eugenia, often repeated in the text)
You, at least, who know that I Myself am coming to talk to you, to make you aware of My love, for your own sake, do not throw yourselves over the precipice. I am your Father!
Is it possible that, having called Me your Father and having shown your love for Me, you could find in Me such a hard and insensitive heart as to let you perish? No, no, do not believe it! I am the best of Fathers! I know My creatures’ weaknesses!
Come to Me, come with confidence and love! I will forgive you after you have repented. Even if your sins were as repulsive as mud, your confidence and your love
will make Me forget them, so you will not be judged! I am just, it is true, but love pays for everything!
Listen, My children, let us make a comparison, and you will be assured of My love. For Me, your sins are like iron, and your acts of love like gold. If you gave Me a
thousand pounds of iron, it would not be like giving Me just ten pounds of gold! In other words, with just a little love, great iniquities can be expiated.
This, then, is one very light-hearted way of looking at My judgment of My children, men, all of them, without exception. You must come to Me. I am so close to
you! You must love Me and honour Me so that you will not be judged, or rather, that you will be judged with infinitely merciful love. 

Have no doubt! If My Heart were not like this, I would have already destroyed the world every time it committed sin! But as you have seen, at every moment My protection manifests itself through graces and benefits. You can conclude from this

that there is a Father Who is above all fathers, Who loves you and will never cease to love you, if you so desire.
I come among you in two ways: the Cross and the Eucharist!
The Cross is My way of coming down among My child-ren, since it is through it that I caused My Son to redeem you. And for you, the Cross is the way to ascend to
My Son, and from My Son to Me. Without it you could never come to Me, because man, by sinning, brought on himself the punishment of separation from God.
In the Eucharist I live among you as a Father with His family. I wished My Son to institute the Eucharist so as to make every tabernacle the vessel of My favours, My
riches and My love, to give them to men, My children.
It is always by these two means that I cause both My power and My infinite mercy to come down ceaselessly.
...Now that I have shown you that My Son Jesus represents Me among men, and that, through Him, I live const-antly among them, I also want to show you that I
come among you through My Holy Spirit.
The work of this third Person of My divinity is carried out silently and often man is not aware of it. But for Me it is a very fitting way of living, not just in the tabernacle,
but also in the souls of all those in a state of grace, to establish My throne in them and to live there always, like the true Father Who loves, protects and helps His
children. No one has yet understood the infinite desire of My divine, paternal Heart to be known, loved and honoured by all men, the just and the sinful. These are the three gifts that I wish to re-ceive in homage from man, so that I may always be
merciful and good even towards the most hardened sinners.
What have I not done for My people, from Adam to Joseph, the adoptive father of Jesus, and from the time of Joseph up to the present day, so that man should give
Me the special honour due to Me as his Father, Creator and Saviour! However, I have not yet received this special veneration which I have so much hoped for and
which I desire so much!
In the book of Exodus you read that God must be held in special veneration. The psalms of David, especially, contain this teaching.In the commandments which I
Myself gave to Moses, I emphasized: “You will worship and love perfectly only one God.”
Well then, loving and honouring are two things that go together. As I have lavished so many benefits on you, I must be honoured by you in a very special way!
Giving you life, I wished to create you in My image! Your heart is therefore as sensitive as Mine, and Mine as yours!
What would you not do if one of your neighbours did you a small favour to please you? The most insensitive man would be grateful to such a person for ever. Anyone
would try to find something that would give the greatest pleasure, in recompense for the service performed. Well, I will be much more grateful to you, assuring you of
eternal life, if you will do Me the small favour of honouring Me as I request.
I recognize that you honour Me in My Son and that there are those who are able to offer everything to Me through My Son, but they are few indeed! Do not believe,
though, that in honouring My Son you are not honouring Me! You do, certainly, honour Me, as I live in My Son! Thus, everything that is to His glory is also to My
glory!
But I would like to see man honouring his Father and Creator with a special devotion. The more you honour Me, the more you will honour My Son, since, according to My will, He became the Word Incarnate and came among you to make known to you the One Who sent Him.
If you come to know Me, you will love Me and My beloved Son more than you do now. See how many of My creatures, who became My children through the mystery of the Redemption, are not in the pastures which I have prepared for all men through
My Son. And how many others, and you know it, are still unaware of the existence of these pastures. And how many creatures of My Hands, whose existence I know of
but of which you are ignorant, do not even know the Hand Which shaped them!
Oh, how I would like to let you know what an almighty Father I am for you and
would also be for those creatures, through My benefits! I would like their lives to be made sweeter through My law. I would like you to go to them in My name and speak
to them of Me. Yes, tell them that they have a Father who, having created them, wants to give them the treasures He possesses. Above all, tell them that I think of
them, I love them and want to give them eternal happiness. Oh, I promise you, men’s conversion will come sooner.
Believe Me, if you had begun to honour Me with a special devotion from the times of the early Church, after twenty centuries few men would remain living in
idolatry, in paganism and in so many false and evil sects, in which man is running blindly towards the abyss of eternal fire! And see how much work remains to be
done!
My hour has come! I must be known, loved and honoured by men, so that, having created them, I can be their Father, then their Saviour and finally the object of
their eternal delight.
Until now I have talked about things that you already knew. I wished to remind you of them so that you would be more and more convinced that I am a very good
Father, not a fearsome one, as you believe; and also that I am the Father of all those living now and of those whom I shall create until the end of the world.
Know, also, that I wish to be known, loved and, above all, honoured. May everyone recognize My infinite goodness towards all men, and especially towards sinners, the sick, the dying, and all those who suffer. Let them know that I want only one thing: to love them all, to give them My grace, to forgive them when they repent
and, most of all, to judge them not with My justice but with My mercy, so that all may be saved and numbered among My elect.
To conclude this brief account, I make you a promise which will have an eternal effect. It is this: call Me by the name of Father, with confidence and love, and you will
receive everything from this Father, with love and mercy.
I wish My son, your spiritual father, to be able to work for My glory and to set down, sentence by sentence, what I have dictated to you, so that men may find it pleasing and easy to read an account of what I wish them to know, without any additions.
Day by day I will talk to you about My wishes for men, about My joys, My sorrows, and most of all, I will show men My infinite goodness and My tender and
compassionate love.
I would also like your superiors to allow you to spend your free time with Me, so that you can console Me and love Me for half an hour each day. You will thereby
ensure that men’s hearts, My children’s hearts, are well disposed to work for the spread of this devotion which I have just revealed to you, so that you may achieve
great confidence in this Father who wants to be loved by His children.
So as to permit this work to be extended among all nations as quickly as possible, without allowing those entrusted with its propagation to commit the slightest imprudent act, I ask you to spend your days in a spirit of recollection. You will be happy not to talk much to others. In your heart, even when you are among them, you will talk to Me and listen to Me.
This is what I want you to do also: when sometimes I talk to you, you will write My confidences in a special little diary. But through it I intend to talk to everyone: I
live with them more intimately than a mother with her children.
Since man’s creation, I have never for one moment stopped living beside him.
As his Creator and Father, I feel the need to love him. It is not that I need him, but My love, as Father and Creator, makes Me feel this need to love man. Thus I live
close to man, I follow him everywhere, I help him in all things, I supply everything.
I can see his needs, his toils, all his desires, and My greatest happiness lies in helping him and saving him.
Men believe Me to be a terrifying God Who is going to cast all mankind into hell.
What a great surprise it will be when, at the end of time, they see so many souls they believed lost, enjoying eternal bliss among the elect!
I wish all My creatures to be convinced that there is a Father Who watches over them and Who would like them to enjoy, on earth, a foretaste of eternal happiness.
A mother never forgets the little creature she has brought into the world. Is it not even more wonderful that I remember all My creatures?
So if a mother loves the little being I gave her, I love him more than she does, because I created him. Even if it happens that a mother loves her child less because
of some defect, I, on the contrary, will love him still more. She may later on forget him or think of him rarely, especially when because of his age he is no longer in her care, but I will never forget him. I will always love him, and even if he no longer remembers Me, His Father and Creator, I will still remember him and love him.
I have already told you that I want you to enjoy eternal happiness even here, on earth, but you still have not understood the real meaning of what I said. It is this:
If you love Me and call Me by the sweet name of Father, you will begin to live, here and now, in the love and the trust which will make you happy in eternity and
which you will sing in heaven in the company of the elect. Is this not a foretaste of the happiness of heaven, which will last for ever?
I therefore desire man to remember often that I am right there, where he is, that he could not live if I were not with him, living just as he is. In spite of his unbelief, I
always remain close to him.
Oh, how I wish to see this plan of mine realized! Until now man has never thought of giving God, his Father, the pleasure I am about to speak of: I would like to
see great trust established between man and his heavenly Father, a true spirit of familiarity and delicacy at the same time, so as not to take advantage of My great
goodness.
I know your needs, your desires, and everything in your hearts. But how happy and grateful I would be if I saw you coming to Me and confiding in Me your needs,
like a son who has total trust in his father. How could I refuse you the smallest or biggest thing if you asked Me? Even if you do not see Me, do you not feel Me very
close to you in the things that happen to you and around you? How you will be rewarded, one day, for having believed in Me, even without having seen Me!
Even now that I am here, in person, among you all, talking to you, repeating ceaselessly, in every way, that I love you and want to be known, loved and honoured
with a special devotion, you cannot see Me, apart from a single person, the one to whom I am dictating this message! Only one among all of humanity! Yet I am talking to you, and in her whom I see and to whom I am talking I see you all and am speaking to each and every one of you, and I love you as if you could see Me!
I want men to be able to know Me and to feel that I am close to each one of them. Remember, o men, that I wish to be the hope of humanity. Am I not already? 

Man would be lost if I were not his hope. But it is necessary for Me to be recognized as such, so that peace, confidence and love may enter men’s hearts and put them in contact with their Father in heaven and on earth!

Do not think of Me as that frightening old man whom men depict in their pictures and books! No, no, I am neither younger nor older than My Son and My Holy Spirit.
Because of this I would like everybody, from the youngest to the oldest, to call Me by the familiar name of Father and Friend. For I am always with you, I am making
Myself similar to you so as to make you similar to Me. How great would be My joy to see parents teaching their children to address Me often by the name of Father, as
indeed I am! How I would like to see infused into these young souls a trust and a filial love for Me! I have done everything for you; will you not do this for Me?
I would like to make My home in every family, as in My domain, so that all can say with absolute assurance: “We have a Father Who is infinitely good, infinitely rich
and greatly merciful. He thinks about us and is close to us. He looks after us, supports us. He will give us everything we need if we ask Him. All his riches are ours,
we will have everything we need.” I am there precisely in order that you should ask Me for what you need. “Ask and you will receive.” In My fatherly goodness I will give
you everything, provided that all regard Me as a true Father, living among His family, as I indeed do.
I also desire that every family prominently display the picture I will later show to My “little daughter”. I wish every family to be able to place itself under My special
protection in this way, so that they can honour Me more easily. There, every day, the family will share with Me its needs, its work, its sorrows, its sufferings, its desires,
and also its joys, because a Father must know everything that concerns His children.
I do know it, of course, because I am there, but I love simplicity. I know how to adapt Myself to your condition. I make Myself little with the little ones, I make Myself an
adult with adults, and the same with the elderly, so that all may comprehend what I wish to tell them for their sanctification and My glory.
Do you not have the proof of what I am saying in My Son, Who made Himself small and weak like you? Do you not still have it now, seeing Me talking to you here?
And have I not chosen a poor creature, like you yourselves, so that I can talk to you and make you understand what I wish to tell you? And now, am I not making Myself like you?
See, I have laid My crown at My Feet and held the world to My Heart. I have left My glory in heaven and come here, becoming all things to all men, becoming poor
with the poor and rich with the rich. I want to protect the young people as a tender Father. There is so much evil in the world! These poor, inexperienced souls are
letting themselves be seduced by the attraction of vice which, little by little, leads to total ruin. You who especially need someone to take care of you in life, so that you can avoid evil, come to Me! I am the Father Who loves you more than any other creature will ever be able to do! Take refuge close, very close to Me, confide in Me
your thoughts and your desires. I will love you tenderly. I will give you graces for the present and bless your future. You can be sure I will not forget you after fifteen or twenty-five or thirty years, having created you. Come! I see that you greatly need a sweet and infinitely good Father like Me.
Without going into many other relevant matters which I can speak about later on, I wish to talk now particularly to those souls whom I have chosen, priests and
religious, to you, dear children of My love. I have great plans for you!»

TO THE POPE

Image result for deus pai jacarei

«I turn to you, My beloved son, My Vicar, before all others, to place this work in your hands. It should rank first among all your tasks and, because of the fear
inspired in men by the devil, it will be accomplished only at this time.
Oh, how I would like you to know the range of this enterprise, its greatness, its breadth, its depth, its height. I would like you to understand the immense wishes that I have for mankind, now and in the future!
If only you knew how much I desire to be known, loved and honoured by men with a special devotion! I have had this desire for all eternity and since the creation of the first man. I have expressed this desire to men at various times, especially in the Old Testament. But man has never understood it. Now this desire makes Me forget all the past, if only it can become a reality now, in My creatures all over the world.
I am stooping down to the poorest of My creatures to talk to her, and through her, to all men, even though she cannot realize the grandeur of the work I wish to
accomplish among them.
I cannot talk of theology with her, I would be sure to fail, for she would not understand Me. I am doing this in order to realize My plan through simplicity and
innocence. But now it is your turn to examine this work and bring it to a speedy fulfilment.
To be known, loved and honoured with a special devotion, I do not ask for anything extraordinary. I desire only this:

1) I desire that one day, or at least a Sunday, be dedicated to honouring Me in a special way under the title of Father of all Mankind. For this feast, I would like a

special Mass and Office. It is not difficult to find the texts in the Holy Scriptures. If you prefer to offer Me this special devotion on a Sunday, I choose the first
Sunday of August. If you prefer a weekday, I would like it to be always the seventh day of that same month.

2) I desire that all the clergy should undertake to promote this devotion and, most of all, to make Me known to men as I am and as I will always be for them, that is to say, the most tender and the most lovable of all fathers.


3) I desire them to bring Me into all families, hospitals, laboratories, workshops, barracks, conference halls of the ministers of nations - in short, wherever My creatures are, even if there were only one of them! I desire that the tangible sign of My invisible presence be a picture to show that I am really present. Thus, all

men will carry out all their actions under their Father’s gaze and I Myself will have before Me the creature that I have not only created but adopted. In this way, My children will be, as it were, under their tender Father’s gaze. Even now I am everywhere, certainly, but I would like to be represented in a tangible way!

4) I desire that during the year the clergy and the faithful should perform some acts of piety in My honour, without detriment to their usual occupations. Let My priests go fearlessly everywhere, among all nations, to bring the flame of My fatherly love to men. Then souls will be enlightened and conquered, not only among unbelievers, but in all those sects which are not of the true Church. Yes, I want these men also, who are My children, to see this flame shining before them, to know the truth, to em-brace it and to put all the Christian virtues into practice.


5) I would like to be honoured in a very special way in seminaries, in novitiates, in schools and homes for the elderly. May everyone, from the youngest to the oldest, be able to know and love Me as their Father, Creator and Saviour. 


6) Let priests set about seeking in the Holy Scriptures what I said in former times and what has remained un-known up to now concerning the worship I wish to receive from men. May they work to make My desires and My will known to all men, specifying what I wish to say to people in general and to priests, monks and nuns in particular. Those souls are the ones I choose, more than others in the world, to pay Me great homage.

Of course, it will take time to realize completely these desires that I have for mankind and which I have revealed to you! But one day, through the prayers and
sacrifices of generous souls who will give themselves for this work of My love, yes, one day I will be satisfied. I will bless you, My beloved son, and I will reward you a
hundredfold for all that you will do for My glory.»

TO THE BISHOP

«I also want to say a word to you, My son Alexander, so that My desires may be realized in the world.
You must join with the father confessor of this “little plant” (Mother Eugenia) of My Son Jesus, in promoting this work, that is, the special devotion I expect from men. To you, My sons, I entrust this work and its future, which is so important.
Talk, persist, make My words known, so that I may be known, loved and honoured by all My creatures. If you do this, you will have done what I expect of you,
that is, My will, and you will have fulfilled the wishes that I have so long cherished in silence.

For everything that you do for My glory, I will do twice as much for your salvation and sanctification. In the end, in heaven, and only in heaven, you will see the great

reward that I will give you in a very special way, together with all those who have worked to this end.
I created man for Myself and it is right that I should be ALL for him. Man will not enjoy true happiness except with his Father and Creator, because his heart is made
for Me alone.
For My part, My love for My creatures is so great that I have no greater joy than that of being among them.
My glory in heaven is infinitely great, but My glory is still greater when I am among My children, men all over the world. Your heaven, My creatures, is in paradise, together with My chosen ones, because it is there that you will contemplate Me in an everlasting vision and will enjoy eternal glory. My heaven is on earth with you all, o men! Yes, it is on earth and in your souls that I look for My happiness and My joy. You can provide Me with this joy and it is also your duty towards your Creator
and Father, Who desires and expects this of you.
The joy I feel in being with you is no less great than that which I felt when I was with My Son Jesus during His mortal life. My Son - it was I Who sent Him. He was
conceived by My Holy Spirit, Who I Myself am; in a word, I was always I. 
Loving you as I loved My Son, Who am I Myself, I say to you, My creatures, as I said to Him: you are My beloved children and in you I am well pleased. Because of
this I rejoice in your company and I desire to stay with you. My presence among you is like the sun on the earth. If you are well disposed to receive Me, I will come very
close to you, enter into you, light you up and warm you with My infinite love.
As for you, souls in a state of sin, or who are ignorant of religious truth, I will not be able to enter you; however, I will be close to you, because I never stop calling
you, inviting you to desire to receive the benefits I bring you, so that you may see the light and be healed of sin.
Sometimes I look at you and feel compassion for your unhappy state. I sometimes look at you with love, to dispose you to yield to the charms of grace. I
spend days, sometimes years, close to some souls to be able to ensure their eternal happiness. They do not know that I am there waiting for them, calling them every
moment of the day. However, I never become weary and I still feel joy in remaining close to you, always hoping that you will return to your Father some day and that you
will at least offer Me some act of love be-fore you die.
I will give you an example of a soul who is facing sudden death; this soul has always been for me like the Prodigal Son. (Note by Mother Eugenia: “I saw this example
as fact, exactly as our Father dictates it and I write it.”)
I lavished benefits on this soul, but he wasted all these benefits, all these gifts that his most loving Father provided for him. More than this, he offended Me gravely. 

I waited for him, I followed him everywhere, I gave him more favours: health and wealth, that I caused to result from his work, to the point of superfluity. At times My

providence granted him further gifts. He therefore had plenty of everything, but he saw it all in the sad light of his vices, and his whole life was a fabric of errors because of habitual mortal sin. But My love never tired. I followed him all the same. I loved him and, most of all, in spite of his rebuffs, I was happy to live patiently close to him, in the hope that maybe one day he would respond to My love and return to Me, His Father and Saviour.
At last his final day is approaching: I have sent him an illness in order to make him come to his senses and return to Me, his Father. Time passes and My poor son -
he is 74 - is at his last hour. I am still there, as always: I talk to him with even more kindness than usual. I persevere, I call My chosen ones and ask them to pray for him, so that he may ask for the forgiveness I am offering him... And now, before breathing his last, he opens his eyes, admits his errors and understands how far he has strayed from the true path that leads to Me. He recovers his senses and in a weak voice, which none of those around him can hear, he says: “My God, I can now
see how great Your love for me has been and I have offended You continually with such a bad life. I never thought about You, my Father and Saviour. Now You see
everything and I beg forgiveness for all this evil which You see in me and which I now discern in my confusion. I love You, my Father and my Saviour!”
He died at that very moment and now here he is, before Me. I judge him with a paternal love: he called Me Father and he is saved. He will spend a period of time in
the place of expiation, and after this he will be happy for all eternity. Having taken pleasure during his life in the hope of saving him when he repented, I now rejoice
even more, together with My celestial court, at having realized My desire to be his Father for ever.
As for the souls who live in justice and sanctifying grace, I show My happiness by living in them. I give them Myself. I transmit to them the use of My power and
through My love they find a foretaste of heaven in Me, their Father and their Saviour!» 

Thus ends the first part of the Message.

THE FATHER´S MESSAGE
Part 2


The second part begins on 12 August 1932. One day the devil took it and slashed its cover with a pair of scissors.


«I have just opened up a fountain of living water which will never dry up from now until the end of time. I am coming to you, My creatures, to open My paternal

Breast, filled with love for you, My children. I want you to be witnesses of My infinite and merciful love. It is not enough for Me to have shown you My love; I also want to
open up My Heart to you, whence a refreshing spring will issue and where all men will quench their thirst. They will then experience joys they have never known until
now through being so weighed down by the exaggerated fear they had of Me, their tender Father.
Since the time when I promised men a Saviour, I have let this spring gush forth.
(Mother Eugenia’s note: “I have been able to see this spring every day since He first talked about it.”) I made it pass through My Son’s Heart to reach you. But My immense love for you makes Me do even more, opening My Breast from Which this water of salvation will gush for My children, and I permit them to draw freely whatever they need for time and for eternity.
If you wish to test the power of this spring about which I am talking, first learn to know Me better and to love Me to the extent that I desire, that is, not only as a
Father, but as your Friend and Confidant.
Why are you so surprised by what I am saying? Did I not create you in My image? I did this so that you should find nothing strange when you talk on familiar
terms with your Father, your Creator and your God. For you have become the children of My fatherly and divine love through My merciful goodness.
My Son Jesus is in Me and I am in Him, in our interchanging love which is the Holy Spirit, Who keeps us united in this bond of love so as to make us ONE.
My Son is the vessel of this fountain, that men may go and draw from His Heart, Which is always full to overflowing with the water of salvation! But you have to assure yourselves of the existence of this fountain which My Son opens up for you, so that you can convince yourselves that it is fresh and pleasing! So come to Me through My Son and, once you are close to Me, confide your desires to Me. I will show you this fountain, making Myself known to you as I really am. When you know Me, your thirst will be quenched, you will be revived, your ills will be cured, your fears will vanish.
Your joy will be great and your love will feel securer than it has ever been before.
But, you will say to Me, how can we come to You? Oh, come by the path of confidence, call Me your Father, love Me in spirit and truth, and this will be enough to
make this refreshing and powerful water quench your thirst.
But if you really want this water to give you all you need to know and love Me, and if you feel cold and indifferent, call Me by the sweet name of Father and I will come to you. My spring will give you love, confidence and everything you need to be loved for ever by your Father and Creator.
As I desire most to be known by all of you, so that you can all enjoy, even here on earth, My goodness and My tenderness, make yourselves apostles to those who
still do not know Me and I will bless your toil and efforts, preparing great glory for you with Me in eternity!
I am the ocean of charity, My children, and this is another proof of the paternal love I feel for all of you, without exception, regardless of your age, your status or your
country. Nor do I exclude different societies, sects, believers, unbelievers, the indifferent. I enfold in this love all the rational creatures who make up humanity. 

Here is the proof of this: I am the ocean of charity. I showed you the spring

which pours from My Breast to quench your thirst, and now, in order to let you see My goodness towards everyone, I am going to show you the ocean of My universal charity, that you may dive into it blindly. Why? So that, diving into this ocean, souls rendered bitter by faults and sins may lose that bitterness in this bath of love. They will emerge from this ocean better, happy at having learned how to be good and charitable. If, because of ignorance or weakness, you yourselves happen to fall again into this state of bitterness, I shall still be an ocean of charity, ready to receive this
bitter drop, transform it into charity and goodness and make you holy as I, your Father, am.
My children, do you want to live your life on earth peacefully and joyfully? Come and cast yourselves into this immense ocean and remain in it for ever. As you work and live your normal life, this life will be sanctified through charity.
As for My children who do not follow the truth, I wish all the more to enfold them in My fatherly predilection, so that they may open their eyes to the light which now
shines more clearly than ever.
This is the time of graces, foreseen and awaited since the beginning of time! I am here personally to talk to you. I come as the most tender and loving of fathers. I stoop down, forgetful of Myself, to raise you up to Me and ensure your salvation. All of you who are now living and you, too, who are in the void, but who will live century after century until the end of the world, remember that you are not alone: a Father thinks of you and offers you a share in the unfathomable privileges of His love.
Approach the spring which will gush for ever from My fatherly Breast. Taste the sweetness of this health-giving water, and when you have felt all its delicious power
in your souls satisfying all your needs, come and cast yourselves into the ocean of My charity, so as to live only in Me, to die to yourselves and to live eternally in Me.»

Mother Eugenia’s note:

Our Father told me in an intimate dialogue: «The spring is the symbol of My knowledge; the ocean is that of My charity and of your trust. When you wish to drink
from this spring, study Me in order to know Me and, when you know Me, dive into the ocean of My charity, trusting in Me with a confidence so deep as to transform
yourselves: this I shall be unable to resist. I shall then forgive your errors and lavish the greatest favours upon you.»

Continuation of the message:

«I am among you. Happy are those who believe this truth and who take advantage of this time about which the Scriptures have spoken thus: “There will
come a time when God must be honoured and loved by men as He desires.”
The Scriptures then go on to ask: “Why?” and answer: “Because He alone is worthy of honour, love and praise for ever!”
Moses received from Me as the first of the ten commandments, this command to be communicated to men: “Love and worship God!”
Those who are already Christians may say: “We have loved you since we were born or since our conversion, as we often say in the Lord’s Prayer: ‘Our Father, Who
art in heaven!’ ” Yes, My children, it is true, you do love Me and honour Me when you say the first part of the ‘Our Father’, but continue with the other requests and you will
see:
“Hallowed be Thy name!” Is My name being blessed?
Continue: 

“Thy kingdom come!” Has My kingdom come?

You honour very fervently the Kingship of My Son Jesus, it is true, and in Him you are honouring Me! But will you deny your Father this great glory of proclaiming
Him ‘King’, or at least, of letting Me reign until all men can know and love Me?
I desire you to celebrate this feast of the Kingship of My Son in reparation for the insults He received before Pilate and from the soldiers who scourged His holy and
innocent humanity. I ask you not to suspend this feast, but, on the contrary, to celebrate it enthusiastically and fervently; but in order that everyone may really know
this King, they must know His kingdom as well. Now, to achieve this dual knowledge perfectly, it is also necessary to know the Father of this King, the Maker of this kingdom.
Truly, My children, the Church - this society I entrusted My Son to found - will complete its work by honouring Him Who is its Author: your Father and Creator.
Some of you, My children, may reply: “The Church has grown continuously.
Christians are more and more numerous: this is sufficient proof that our Church is complete!” Know, My children, that your Father has always kept watch over the Church since its birth and that, along with My Son and the Holy Spirit, I wanted it to be infallible through My Vicar, the Holy Father. However, is it not true that if
Christians knew Me as I am, the tender and merciful, good and liberal Father, they would practise this holy religion more fervently and sincerely?
My children, is it not perhaps true that, if you knew you had a Father Who thinks of you and loves you infinitely, you would in your turn make an effort to be more
faithful to your Christian duties, as well as to your duties as citizens, to be just and to render justice to God and to men?
Is it not true that, if you knew this Father Who loves you all without distinction and Who, without distinction, calls you all by the sweet name of children, you would
love Me as affectionate children, and that this love, under My impulse, would become an active love, extending itself to the rest of humanity who still do not know this Christian society and who know even less Him Who created them and is their Father?
If somebody went and talked to these souls, abandoned to their superstitions, or to so many others who call Me God because they know I exist but not that I am close
to them; if somebody said to them that their Maker is their Father as well, and that He thinks of them and is concerned with them, that He surrounds them with intimate affection in their sorrows and dejection, this would obtain the conversion of the most stubborn ones, and these conversions would be more numerous and firm, that is, more persevering.
Some of you, examining this work of love I am carrying out among men, will find cause for criticism and will say: “But don’t the missionaries, after arriving in those
distant countries, talk to the non-believers about God, His goodness and His mercy?
What more could they say about God, since they speak of Him all the time?”
The missionaries have spoken and still speak of God as far as they know Him, but I assure you, you do not know Me as I am, because I am coming to proclaim
Myself the Father of all and the most tender of fathers, in order to transform your love, which has become distorted by fear.
I come to make Myself similar to My creatures, to correct the idea you have of a terrifyingly just God, as I see men spending their whole lives without confiding in their
only Father, Whose only wish is to make their earthly life easier and then give them a divine life, in heaven.
This is a proof that souls do not know Me any more than you do, not having overcome the idea you have about Me. But now I am giving you this light. Remain in
the light and bring it to everybody, and it will be a powerful means both to obtain conversions and to shut, if possible, the gates of hell, for I now repeat My promise, which will last for ever:
ALL THOSE WHO CALL ME BY THE NAME OF FATHER, EVEN IF ONLY ONCE, WILL NOT PERISH, BUT WILL BE SURE OF THEIR ETERNAL LIFE AMONG THE CHOSEN ONES.
And to you who will work for My glory and commit yourselves to making Me known, honoured and loved, I give the assurance that your reward will be great, because I will count everything, even the smallest effort you make, and I will reward you a hundredfold in eternity.
As I have told you, it is necessary to bring to fulfilment in the holy Church the devotion which honours in a very special way this society’s Author, the One Who
came to found it, and the One Who is its soul, God in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Until the three Persons are honoured by a special devotion in the Church and the whole of mankind, there will be something lacking in this society. I have already
made some souls aware of this lack, but most of them, too timid, have not responded to My call. Others have had the courage to speak about it to the appropriate people, but, in the face of their failure, they have not persisted.
Now My hour has come. I Myself am coming to make men, My children, know what, until today, they have not understood completely. I Myself am coming to bring
the flame of the law of love so that, by this means, the enormous layer of ice that surrounds mankind can be melted and destroyed.
Oh, beloved humanity, oh, men who are My children, set yourselves free from the bonds in which the devil has chained you until now, inspiring in you fear of a
Father Who is pure love! Come, come closer to Me, you have every right to approach your Father; open up your hearts, pray to My Son that He may help you to
know even better My goodness towards you.
You who are prisoners of superstition and the laws of the devil, leave this tyrannical slavery and come to the truth of truths. Recognize the One Who made you
and is your Father. Do not try to claim your rights, paying worship and homage to those who have led you to spend your life useless-ly until now, but come to Me, I am waiting for you all be-cause you are all My children.
And you who are in the true light, tell them how sweet it is to live in the truth! Say also to those Christians, to those dear creatures, My children, how sweet it is to think that there is a Father Who sees everything, knows everything, provides for everything, Who is infinitely good, Who forgives easily and Who punishes only
reluctantly and slowly. Tell them to come to Me: I will help them, I will lighten their burden and sweeten their hard life. I will inebriate them with My fatherly love, to
make them happy in time and eternity.
And you, My children, who have lost the faith and live in the darkness, raise your eyes, you will see shining rays coming to illuminate you. I am the sun that shines,
warms and re-warms. Look, and recognize that I am your Creator, your Father, your one and only God. It is because I love you that I come to make you love Me, so that you may all be saved.
I am speaking to all men, the world over, making this appeal of My fatherly love ring out, this infinite love that I want you to know is a permanent reality.
Love, love, love always, but also show others how to love the Father, so that from today on I will be able to show you all the Father Who loves you so
passionately.
And you, My beloved sons, priests and monks, I exhort you to make known this fatherly love that I have for men, and for you in particular. You must work so that My
will may be accomplished in all men and in you. It is that I should be known, honoured and loved. Do not leave My love inactive for a long time, because I am thirsty in My desire to be loved!
This century is privileged above all others. Do not let this privilege pass, for fear that it might be withdrawn! Souls need a certain divine touch, and time presses; do
not be afraid of anything, I am your Father; I will help you in your efforts and your work. I will sustain you always and make you enjoy, already here below, peace and
joy of soul, making your ministry and your zealous works bear fruit. This is an inestimable gift, since the soul which is peaceful and joyful already has a foretaste of heaven while awaiting its eternal reward.
I communicated to My Vicar, the Supreme Pontiff, My Representative on earth, a very special predilection for the missionary apostolate in distant countries and, most
of all, a great zeal to spread throughout the world the devotion to the Sacred Heart of My Son Jesus. Now I am entrusting him with the work that this same Jesus came on earth to accomplish: to glorify Me by making Me known as I am, just as I am telling all men, My creatures and children.
If men could penetrate the Heart of Jesus in all Its de-sires and Its glory, they would realize that Its most ardent desire is to glorify the Father, the One Who sent
Him, and, most of all, not to let His glory be diminished as it has been until now. He desires the complete glory that men can and must give Me, as their Father and Maker, and still more as the Author of their Redemption!
I am asking of man what he is able to give Me: his confidence, his love and his gratitude. It is not because I need My creature and his adoration that I desire to be known, honoured and loved; the only reason why I am stooping down to him is to save him and give him a share in My glory. Further, in My goodness and My love I realize that the beings I have drawn from nothing and adopted as My true children are falling in great numbers into eternal unhappiness with the devils. They are thus failing to fulfil the purpose of their creation and are losing their time and their eternity!
If there is something that I desire, above all now, it is simply to see more fervour on the part of the just, a smooth path for the conversion of sinners, sincere and
persevering conversion, and the return of the prodigal sons to their Father’s house. I am referring in particular to the Jews and to all others who are My creatures and
children, such as the schismatics, the heretics, the freemasons, the poor infidels, the sacrilegious, and the various secret sects. I want this whole world to know that there is a God and a Creator. This God, Who will address their ignorance twice over, is unknown
to them; they do not know that I am their Father.
Believe Me, you who are listening to Me as you read these words: if all men who are far from our Catholic Church heard people talking about this Father Who loves them, Who is their Creator and their God, about this Father Who desires to give them eternal life, then many of these men, even the most obstinate ones, would come to this Father of Whom you had spoken to them.
If you cannot go to them and talk to them directly, look for other means: 
thousands of direct and indirect ways. Put them into effect with the true spirit of disciples and with great fervour. I promise you that your efforts will soon be crowned with success by a special grace. Make yourselves apostles of My fatherly goodness and, because of the zeal I will give you all, you will be strong and powerful in your work among souls.
I will always be close to you and in you: if there are two of you talking, I will be with you; if there are more, I will be among you; thus you will say what I inspire you
to say and I will put your listeners in the right frame of mind to hear you. In this way, men will be conquered by love and saved for all eternity.
With regard to the means of honouring Me as I desire, all I ask of you is great confidence. Do not think I want austerities or mortifications; I do not want you to walk  barefoot or to lay your faces in the dust, or to cover yourselves with ashes. No, no!
My dearest wish is that you behave as My children, simply and trusting in Me!
With you I will become everything for everyone, the most tender and loving Father. I will be on intimate terms with you, giving Myself to you all, making Myself
small so as to make you great for eternity.
Most of the unbelievers, the impious and various communities remain in their iniquity and unbelief because they think that I am asking the impossible of them, that they have to submit to My commands like slaves of a tyrannical lord, whose power and pride keep him distant from his subjects, to oblige them to show Him respect and devotion. No, no, My children! I know how to make Myself small, far smaller than you can imagine.
However, what I do require is the faithful observance of the commandments I gave the Church, so that you will be rational creatures and will not be like animals
because of your lack of discipline and your evil inclinations, so that you will preserve the treasure which is the soul I gave you, clothed in the fullness of its divine beauty!
Then, according to My desire, do what I have already instructed you to do:
honour Me with a special devotion. May this make you know My will to give you many benefits and to let you share in large measure in My power and My glory,
simply in order to make you happy and save you, and to show My sole desire: to love you and be loved in return by you.
If you love Me as faithful children, you will also have loving and obedient respect for My Church and My representatives. Not a respect such as you show now, which keeps you distant from Me because you are afraid of Me. This false respect that you have now is an injustice to justice, it is a wound you cause to the most sensitive part of My Heart; you are forgetting, scorning, My fatherly love for you.
What most grieved Me about My people, Israel, and what most afflicts Me still about present-day humanity, is this ill-conceived respect you have of Me. Man’s enemy has, in fact, used it to lead him to fall into idolatry and schisms. He is still using it and will continue to use it against you to keep you distant from the truth, from
My Church and from Me. Oh, do not allow yourselves to be led any longer by the enemy; believe in the truth that is being revealed to you and walk in the light of this
truth.

You, My children, who are outside the Catholic Church, should realize that you are not excluded from My fatherly love. I am making this tender appeal to you because you too are My children. If you have lived up to now in the devil’s snares, acknowledge that he has cheated you. Come to Me, your Father, and I will receive you with joy and love!

And you, who only know the religion in which you have grown up, and that religion is not the true one, open your eyes. Here is your Father, He Who created you and Who wants to save you. I come to you to bring you the truth and salvation. I can see that you do not know Me and do not realize that all I want is for you to know Me as your Father, Creator and Saviour. It is because of this ignorance that you cannot love Me. Understand, therefore, that I am not as far from you as you think.
How could I leave you alone after having created you and adopted you through My love? I follow you everywhere, I protect you always, so that everything may
become a confirmation of My great liberality towards you, in spite of your forgetfulness about My infinite goodness. This forgetfulness makes you say: “Nature
provides us with everything, it makes us live and die.” This is the time of grace and light. Recognize, then, that I am the only true God!
In order to give you real happiness in this life and in the next, I want you to do what I am suggesting to you in this light. The time is propitious, do not lose this love which is being offered to your hearts so tangibly. I ask everyone to take part in the Holy Mass according to the liturgy; this pleases Me greatly! Later on I will suggest
some short prayers to you, but I do not want to overburden you! The most important thing will be to honour Me as I told you, by establishing a feast in My honour and serving Me with the simplicity of true children of your God, Father, Creator and Saviour of the human race.
Here is another proof of My fatherly love for men. My children, I will not speak to you about the whole greatness of My infinite love, because you have only to open the holy books, to look at the crucifix, the tabernacle and the Blessed Sacrament, to realize the extent to which I have loved you!
Nevertheless, in order to show you that you need to satisfy My will for you and to make Me better known and loved, I wish, before ending these words, which only set
out the basis of My work of love among men, to point out to you some of the innumerable proofs of My love for you!
As long as man does not live in the truth, he cannot taste real freedom. You, My children, think you have joy and peace, you who are outside the true law, for obedience to which I created you. But deep in your hearts you feel that you have neither true peace nor true joy and that you do not enjoy the true freedom of the One Who created you and is your God and Father!
But you, who abide in the true law, or rather, who have promised to follow the law that I gave you to ensure your salvation, have let vice lead you into evil. You
have strayed from the law by behaving badly. Do you think you are happy? No. You feel that your hearts are not at ease. Do you suppose that, looking for pleasure and other human joys, your hearts will finally be satisfied? No. Let Me tell you, you will never feel truly free nor truly happy until you recognize Me as your Father and submit to My yoke, to be true children of God, your Father.
Why? Because I created you for a single purpose, to know Me, love Me and serve Me, as a simple and trusting child serves its father!
Once, in the Old Testament, men behaved like animals, they did not preserve any sign of their dignity as children of God, their Father. So to make them realize that I wanted to raise them to the great dignity of God’s children, I some-times had to show Myself as dreadfully severe. Later, when I saw some of them were endowed
with sufficient reason to understand, eventually, that it was necessary to distance themselves from the animals, I then began to lavish benefits on them, to give them
victory over those who were still un-able to recognize and preserve their own dignity.
And as they were increasing in number, I sent My Son to them. He was adorned with all the divine perfections be-cause He was the Son of a perfect God. It was He
Who showed them the ways to perfection. Through Him I adopted you in My infinite love, as real children. Since then I have never called you simply “creatures”, but
“children”.
I clothed you in the true spirit of the new law which not only distinguishes you from animals, like the men of the old law, but raises you above those men of the Old
Testament. I raised you all to the dignity of children of God. Yes, you are My children and you must tell Me that I am your Father. But trust in Me as children do, because
without this trust you will never be truly free.
Everything I am saying to you is intended to make you realize that I come to carry out this work of love, to give you powerful help to cast off the tyrannical slavery which imprisons your souls, and to let you enjoy real freedom, whence real happiness comes. Compared with this freedom, all earthly joys are as nothing. Raise yourselves to the dignity of children of God and learn how to respect your own greatness. I will then be your Father more than ever, the most lovable and merciful of fathers. 

I have come to bring peace with this work of love. I will let a ray of peace fall upon anyone who honours Me and trusts in Me, so that he will be relieved in all his troubles, all his worries, sufferings and afflictions, especially if he calls Me and loves Me as his Father. If families honour Me and love Me as their Father, I will give them My peace together with My providence. If workers,businessmen and artisans invoke and honour Me, I will give them My peace and My strength, I will show Myself to be the good and merciful Father. If each Christian community invokes and honours Me, I will give it My peace, I will show Myself to be a most loving Father, and through My power I will ensure the eternal salvation of souls.

If all mankind invokes and honours Me, I will bring down upon it the spirit of peace like a benevolent dew.
If all nations, as such, invoke and honour Me, there will be no more discord, nor wars, because I am the God of peace and where I am, there no war can be.
Do you wish to gain victory over your enemy? Call upon Me and you will triumph over him.
Finally, you know that I can do everything because of My power. Well, I am offering this power to all of you, to use now and for eternity. I will always show Myself to be your Father, provided that you show yourselves to be My children.
What do I desire to achieve with this work of love, if not to find hearts able to understand Me?
I am the holiness of which I possess the perfect and full expression; I offer you this holiness, of which I am the Author, through My Holy Spirit, and I instill it in your souls through My Son’s merits.
It is through My Son and the Holy Spirit that I am coming to you and into you, and it is in you that I seek My repose.
To some souls, the words “I am coming into you” will seem a mystery, but it is not a mystery! Because, having instructed My Son to institute the Holy Eucharist, I intended to come to you every time you receive the Sacred Host!
Of course, nothing prevented Me from coming to you even before the Eucharist, as nothing is impossible to Me! But receiving this Sacrament is an action that is easy to understand and it shows how I come to you!
When I am in you, I can more easily give you what I possess, provided that you ask Me for it. Through this Sacrament you are intimately united with Me. It is in this intimacy that the outpouring of My love makes My holiness spread into your souls.
I fill you with My love, then you have only to ask Me for the virtues and perfection you need and you can be sure that in those moments when God is reposing in His creatures, nothing will be refused you.
Since you know My favourite place of rest, are you not going to offer Me it? I am your Father and your God; will you dare refuse Me this? Oh, do not let Me suffer because of your cruelty towards a Father Who is asking you for this one favour for Himself.
Before ending this message, I want to express a wish to numerous souls who are consecrated to My service. You, priests and religious, are those souls. You are dedicated to My service, whether in the contemplative life or in charitable and apostolic works. For My part, this is a privilege granted through My goodness; for your part, it is faithfulness to your vocation, together with your good will.
This is My desire: you who find it easier to understand what I expect of mankind, pray to Me, so that I will be able to accomplish My work of love in all souls. You know all the difficulties that have to be overcome to win a soul! Well, this is the effective means of helping you to bring a great number of them to Me: this means is that of making Me known, loved and honoured by men. 

I want you to be the first ones to start doing this. What joy for Me to enter first the houses of priests and religious! What joy to find Myself, as Father, amid the children of My love! With you I will converse as with intimate friends! I will be for you the most discreet of confidants! I will be everything to you, I will satisfy all your needs! Most of all, I will be the Father Who receives your requests, Who lavishes His love, His benefits and His universal tenderness upon you.

Do not refuse Me this joy which I desire to enjoy with you! I will give it back to you a hundredfold and, since you will honour Me, I will honour you too, by preparing great glory for you in My kingdom!
I am the light of lights: where it penetrates there will be life, bread and happiness. This light will illumine the pilgrim, the sceptic, the ignorant. It will illumine
you all, o men who live in this world of darkness and vice. If you did not have My light, you would fall into the abyss of eternal death!
Finally, this light will lighten the ways which lead to the true Catholic Church for its poor children who are still victims of superstition. I will show Myself as a Father to those who suffer most on earth, the poor lepers.
I will show Myself to be the Father of all those who are abandoned, the outcasts of every human society. I will show Myself as a Father to the afflicted, the sick, and above all, to those who are in agony. I will show Myself as a Father to all families, to orphans, widows, prisoners, workers and the young. I will show Myself as the Father of kings, the Father of their nations. You will all feel My goodness and My protection, you will all see My power!
My fatherly and divine blessing on everyone. Amen!
Especially to My Son and Representative. Amen!
Especially to My son, the bishop. Amen!
Especially to My son, your spiritual father. Amen!
Especially to My daughters, your mothers. Amen!
To all the congregation of My love. Amen!
To all the Church and to all the clergy. Amen!
A very special blessing to the Church in purgatory. Amen!
AMEN!

Prayer of Mother Eugenia
God is my Father

My Father in Heaven, how sweet it is to know that You are my Father and that I am Your child!
Especially when the skies of my soul are cloudy and my cross weighs more heavily, I feel the need to repeat to You: Father, I believe in Your love for me!
Yes, I believe that You are a Father to me at every moment of my life, and that I am Your child!
I believe that You love me with an infinite love!
I believe that You are watching over me night and day and that not a hair falls from my head without Your permission!
I believe that, in Your infinite Wisdom, You know better than I what is good for me.
I believe that, in Your infinite power, You can bring good even out of evil.
I believe that, in Your infinite goodness, You make everything to the advantage of those who love You; even under the hands of those who strike me I kiss Your hand which heals!
I believe, but increase in me faith, hope and love!
Teach me always to see Your love as my guide in every event of my life.
Teach me to surrender myself to You like a baby in its mother’s arms.
Father, You know everything, You see everything, you know me better than I know myself; You can do everything, and You love me!
My Father, since it is Your wish that we should always turn to You, I come with confidence to ask You, together with Jesus and Mary... (here request the favour that you desire).
For this intention, and uniting myself to their Most Sacred
Hearts, I offer You all my prayers, my sacrifices and mortifications, all my actions, and greater faithfulness to my duties. (If this prayer it to be recited as a novena, add: “I promise to be more generous, especially during these nine days, in a given circumstance, to such and such a person....”).
Give me the light, the grace and the power of the Holy Spirit!
Strengthen me in this Spirit, that I may never lose Him, never sadden Him and never allow Him to become weaker in me.
My Father, I ask this in the name of Jesus, Your Son! And You, Jesus, open Your Heart and place in it my own, and, together with Mary’s, offer it to our divine Father! Obtain for me the grace that I need!
Divine Father, call all men to Yourself. Let all the world proclaim Your fatherly goodness and Your divine mercy!
Be a tender Father to me and protect me wherever I am, like the apple of Your eye. Make me always a worthy son/daughter; have mercy on me!
Divine Father, sweet hope of our souls, may You be known, honoured and loved by all men!
Divine Father, infinite goodness poured out on all peoples, may You be known, honoured and loved by all men!
Divine Father, beneficent dew of humanity, may You be known, honoured and loved by all men!
