(Mary speaks)

(Mary) “My dear children,

During these times of My visitations, I have patiently sought to reawaken you to the love of God. The infant as it comes into the world is still strongly bonded to God. But through time you My children, become distracted              losing your

way. There is no interest in pursuing God...... you instead, chose to pursue paths
leading to destruction. (our Lady sounded very sad) It is God who continuously
pursues you to bring you back. You are like His prodigal child. He awaits

you..... to share in His glory........... the inheritance of eternity in the light of God’s
love.

The many graces being poured out during these times......... are a sign of the

warmth of God’s love. Those who choose to absorb these graces.......... live without
fear in the Will of God. You are children of God.....created in His image. He calls
you. Love, for your world cannot heal without love and forgiveness.

Relationships are broken........... there is no attempt to seek God’s healing. How sad

My children......... how sad (said with much expression) that families ..........  the core
of love, struggle to love and forgive. How can peace come about when families

cannot heal? Poor children.......... do you not understand? ......(Tongues)......I ask you to become a simple sponge....... a sponge that absorbs water and whencompletely filled is rung out........... ready to be refilled once again. I ask you to be asponge of God’s love and mercy.......... who at His command, you will standready........ to be emptied out.......... that He may refill you with prayerful graces. Oh,My children, You who hear My words........... remember them... . for the time sooncomes.......... that your strength will lie in My words. If you have not heededthem.....it will be as the sand upon the seashore........... that once the water comes
..... you are taken out with the tide... . lost. But if you listen carefully to My teachings .... your strength is and will be in God. He will always stand beside
you............. forming you into the rock which shall never be broken. It will stand in

strength and in love......... as God wishes each of His children to stand in strength
and love. I bring you peace and a gentle reminder... that time is of the essence. In Their will to love (references the spiritual world)... and the power in willing to love is such...... that in terms of your world..... you would not understand, or to

love as Jesus loves. What a weapon you have, My children..... if only you would forget yourselves..... and love unconditionally.....with no expectations ............................................................................................................... but
complete trust in God. I bless you and encourage you..... My dear, dear children.”

(Visual): “I see a rocky coast... the waters splashing against the rocks.... as
though a storm is covering them... the waters recede, but the rocks remain. (I hear) We are the rocks rooted in Jesus... the waters are the trials, the temptations that strike at us every day of our lives, and yet we shall remain strong... for Jesus is always with us!”
