My dear children,
I come this day out of pure love desiring that each heart be entrusted to the Divine Will of My Son and the promises He has made to each of His children. My heart becomes heavy, little ones, as I sense the uncertainty which seeks to torment your souls ---- for you must not fear but walk confidently in the peaceful assurance of the love and mercy of Jesus.
My children, I tell you of this Divine Love over and over again and yet many hearts remain troubled ---- unsure and filled with anxiety. By what reason, dear children, do you fear love? Pure love is life ---- life in Jesus who continually watches over you with such compassion as He knows the intentions of your hearts and understands the frailty of your humanity. Be at peace, My children, for each day's struggles bring you closer to holiness. Trust in Jesus and persevere but a short while longer for all is as it must be.
Peace and love.
