December 9, 1997 (Mary)
My dear children,
I caution you to become aware of each day's distractions which draw you further from Jesus and the purpose for which you were created. Seek to form an intimate bond with Him whereby you will realize the necessity of deep and continual prayer ---- a prayer of praise and trust in the Holy One.
Many paths in life lead to materialistic fulfillment, but only one leads to eternal life. Choose wisely, my little ones, for soon all must account for their choices ---- both good and bad. Prepare your hearts ---- do not fear the total commitment of which we desire, but trust that We know what is best for you and freely surrender your will to that of the Divine Will.
Pray much and fast for such cleansing aids in the purification of your souls as journeys end approaches. Be ready and be prepared as the time of accountability now approaches.
Peace and love!
