Courage In This Great Final Battle II
No ecclesial movement will be exempt from the purification in this period of the “great tribulation” (Mt 24:21), not even the Marian Movement of Priests! In June 2016 I published the following article:
“The Church Will Be Purified in the Great Tribulation!”
I was happy that Padre Gabrielli Quartilio, who spent much time with Don Stefano Gobbi, had the COURAGE to offer the following meditation. This is the SECOND of two meditations offered by Padre Gabrielli Quartilio at the International Spiritual Exercises of 2016.
One can find the first meditation by Padre Gabrielli Quartilio, “Courage In This Great Final Battle”, at:

The following is a meditation offered by Padre Gabrielli Quartilio to more than 200 priests and more than 10 bishops in the International Spiritual Exercises of the Marian Movement of Priests, in Collevalenza - Shrine of Merciful Love (Madre Speranza), June 26 to 02 July, 2016.
The Holy Spirit and the M.M.P.
AVE MARIA! By now we have arrived to the big trial, as I said to you this morning. We have seen how easy it is to fall into deception, even though for many years one is part of M.M.P. (Marian Movement of Priests).
Now it's time to welcome the message of Fatima, "often disputed and rejected by many" (May 8, 1997): there is needed a little remnant even of the Movement, cloistered in the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the Holy Spirit's light, so that it can endure to the end without hesitation, without any 'buts' ... without many 'we will see', without `there is a danger that ... '.
That's why this meditation is on the Holy Spirit, because only the strength and light of the Holy Spirit can help us.
This year we celebrate the 44th year since the start of M.S.M. - May 8, 1972 - and we approach 45 years. There have been many events, so many changes, so many things have happened in the world and in the Church, that no one could have ever imagine. At the end of 1989 there was the fall of the Berlin Wall, the collapse of the Soviet Union; I remember that the Pope John Paul II said:
"THE IMMACULATE (it was December 8) brought down a wall that caused many tears and so much blood to be shed. There is yet another wall that will cause to be shed more tears, and even more copious, and will cause even more blood to be shed everywhere, but there will fall the wall of walls of the world power which, in politics, in the economy and in the sole religious power, wants to enslave all the peoples of the earth."
These prophetic words are coming true and in these our times. Our Lady has given rise to this work of the Marian Movement of Priests and of the Marian Movement, because we must invoke with Mary the second Pentecost, so that She, the Immaculate, might obtain for us the Holy Spirit, as She obtained on the Apostles:
- To spread the Kingdom of God in the world,
- To renew the world, the Church, the hearts,
- To break down this wall of world powers.
We too must wait in the Cenacle of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and unite ourselves in one heart and one soul in a continuous cenacle, invoking the Holy Spirit as the Mama asks us:
“COME, HOLY SPIRIT, COME BY MEANS OF THE POWERFUL INTERCESSION OF THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY”.
There are many passages in the Blue book which invite to enter the `CENACLE' of her Immaculate Heart, to obtain the second Pentecost, the only thing that can change the world, the Church and the hearts, made hard by the separation from God. Now I quote a few:
“The whole Church must now enter into the cenacle of my Immaculate Heart: all the bishops, the priests, the religious and the faithful must enter. In the Cenacle of Jerusalem, upon the Apostles gathered in prayer with me, there descended the Holy Spirit, and there took place the miracle of the first Pentecost. Thus, only in the cenacle of my Immaculate Heart, when the whole Church will have entered in, will the great prodigy of the second Pentecost take place. It will be a divine fire of purification and of sanctification which will renew all the face of the earth. My times have come…
For this I am asking you to multiply everywhere your cenacles of prayer and of brotherly sharing and to lead the greatest number possible of my children to the consecration to my Immaculate Heart.
In this year there will already begin to take place some of the events of which I have foretold you, as signs of my proximate triumph. Prepare yourselves in a spirit of humility, of confidence and of great hope… The Spirit of the Lord will transform the hearts and the souls of men and make of them courageous witnesses of his divine love. The Spirit of the Lord will prepare humanity to receive the glorious reign of Christ, that the Father may be loved and glorified by everyone.” (June 7, 1987)
(Note: The “Blue Book” refers to: “To The Priests Our Lady’s Beloved Sons”; http://our-lady-priests.blogspot.it/).
Our Lady says: "This year will already start some of the events which I foretold you, as signs of My near triumph". In fact, the thaw began in 1986 with Gorbachev, in 1989 there was the fall of the Berlin Wall, in Christmas of that year, the collapse of the Soviet republics, the elections in 1991 where Eilsin came into power and so fell the last dictator of the Soviet Union.
Now, it seems that Our Lady has kept the promise: the Soviet Union, in our day is the only one that bars the way to the strong powers which want to subvert every law, every sovereign state, every religion, especially the Catholic religion. The dictatorship of relativism, political, economic, moral and religious is the fertile ground to destroy above all the Church with the terrible apostasy that, beginning with Marxism, has even permeated the Church, causing irreparable evils.
All this, dear Priests, is before our eyes: let's keep them open! Excuse me, but it seems to me that many, act like ostriches: that – as they say - when they see the danger, instead of running away, they put their heads in the sand in order to not see.
Let us listen, then, to what Our Lady tells us in this beautiful message of 1988, where she describes these our days, which did not reveal to us, but in any case we are living. These are words of a terrifying actuality:
"I am coming down from heaven, so that the final secrets may be revealed to you and that I may be able thus to prepare you for what, as of now, you must live through, for the purification of the earth. My third secret, which I revealed here to three little children to whom I appeared and which up to the present has not yet been revealed to you, will be made manifest to all by the very occurrence of the events.
The Church will know the hour of its greatest apostasy. The man of iniquity will penetrate into its interior and will sit in the very temple of God, while the little remnant which will remain faithful will be subjected to the greatest trials and persecutions. Humanity will live through the moment of its great chastisement and thus will be made ready to receive the Lord Jesus who will return to you in glory.
For this reason, especially today, I am coming down again from heaven: through my numerous apparitions; through the messages which I give; and through this extraordinary work of my Marian Movement of Priests, to prepare you to live through the events which are even now in the process of being fulfilled, in order to lead you by the hand to walk along the most difficult and painful segment of this, your second Advent, and to prepare the minds and the hearts of all to receive Jesus at the closely approaching moment of his glorious return." (May 13, 1990)
These words of Our Lady describe clearly and in detail the times in which we live.
Even in all the years we spent with Don Stefano we have been told and retold in many ways (in his meditations, in his circular letters, where he repeated, ad nauseam one could say), what Our Lady wants from Her beloved children in these times, in order to be well attentive:
To prepare ourselves to live the events that are about to take place ... and lead us to walk this painful and dangerous stretch of time that separates us from his glorious return, that part of the secret that we will know as we will live it. These are the times!
We will undergo a great trial and persecution and this is already coming true:
"- The great trial has come for the Church … The hour of its great trial has above all come for the Church, because it will be shaken by the lack of faith, obscured by apostasy, wounded by betrayal, abandoned by its children, divided by schisms, possessed and dominated by Freemasonry, turned into fertile soil from which will spring up the wicked tree of the man of iniquity, the Antichrist, who will bring his kingdom into its interior.
- The great trial has come for all humanity, already lacerated by spreading violence, by destructive hatred, by wars which are expanding menacingly, by great ills which no one is able to heal. At the dawn of this new year, the threat of a terrible third world war is becoming stronger and more worrisome. How many people will have to suffer the scourge of hunger, of famine, of discord, and of fratricidal struggles which will spill much blood on your roads.
- If the time of the great trial has come, the time has come also for all to hasten into the safe refuge of my Immaculate Heart. Do not lose courage. Be strong in trust and confidence. I have told you beforehand of the times which await you, painful and difficult times, precisely in order to help you live in trust and in a great confidence in your heavenly Mother.” (January 1, 1993)
“- Do not allow yourselves to be seized with discouragement, … The times have come when Jesus Crucified must be loved and glorified by you. Bring Him always with you, and show Him to all as the only Savior and Redeemer. For this perverse generation of yours as well, there is no other possibility of salvation except in Christ Jesus Crucified.
- Do not allow yourselves to be seized with fear. The time of your immolation has now come.
You will be persecuted. It will even be that those who oppose you, who calumniate you, who despise you, who push you aside and who persecute you will believe that they are doing something pleasing to the Heavenly Father and even to me, your Immaculate Mother. This forms part of the tenebrous time in which you are living. Because you are now entering into the most painful and dark phase of the purification, and soon the Church will be shaken by a terrible persecution, a new persecution, such as has hitherto been unknown.” (November 12, 1988)
This is true, these holy words of Our Lady are coming true today even within the heart of the M.M.P., it seems to me. After the death of Don Stefano, I have the impression that many have forgotten his teaching and his character that he did not have any problem in saying what he had to say. I would like to recall a few fixed points:
- The smallness and spiritual childhood that he asked of us always, almost ad nauseam;
- The frankness and courage in defending the Truth, the Gospel.
Take a look at the message of October 27, 1986 where Our Lady condemns with no ifs and or buts the ecumenical meeting of Assisi.
I'm afraid that sometimes we are too afraid to defend the Gospel and the truth, and we seek refuge too easily to talk about us and maybe choosing some message, we use excessive caution out of fear or adapt to the situation of the moment.
I remember that Don Stefano told about the cenacle in Poland, in Krakow, where he happened to comment on the passage of the book of Revelation which speaks about the "Red Dragon"; Poland was still under communist rule and said everything. Another time in Mexico he was with a cassock and was forbidden to go dressed as a priest; he thought that they would arrest him, instead they asked him for a blessing.
If we want to belong to the Movement it is necessary to defend the Truth, to understand that we are "property of Maria ", to be like SMALL SMALL CHILDREN, otherwise there one is deceived. We must be careful not to do like the frog, that to cook it, they do not put it in hot water, but in cold water, and then, slowly, you turn up the fire and the frog is cooked without realizing it. This is what Our Lady tells us in these two messages of 1989 and 1988.
“In these dark times of the great tribulation, if you do not allow yourselves to be carried in my arms, with filial abandonment and with great docility, it is difficult for you to succeed in escaping the subtle snares which my Adversary sets for you. His seductions have become so dangerous and subtle that hardly anyone any longer succeeds in escaping them. You are running the great danger of falling into the seduction, which my Adversary is setting for you in order to draw you away from Jesus and from me. All can fall into his trap. Priests and even bishops can fall into it. The faithful and even those consecrated can fall into it. The simple and even the learned can fall into it. The disciples and even the masters can fall into it.
Those will never fall into it who - as little children - consecrate themselves to my Immaculate Heart and allow themselves to be carried in my motherly arms. As of now, it will become ever clearer and clearer to the Church and to the world that the little flock which, in these years of the great apostasy, will remain faithful to Jesus and to his Gospel, will be entirely protected in the motherly enclosure of my Immaculate Heart.” (February 2, 1989)
Belonging to the M.M.P. is not a life insurance policy: you have to live the true spirit of the consecration, that is the total dependence on Mary, in humility, in littleness, in total trust in Her, even risking one’s own life. Mama tells us:
“The hour of the great apostasy has come. What has been foretold in Holy Scripture, in the Second Letter of Saint Paul to the Thessalonians, is now on the point of coming to pass. Satan, my Adversary, with snares and by means of his subtle seduction, has succeeded in spreading errors everywhere, under the form of new and more updated interpretations of the truth, and he has led many to choose with full knowledge - and to live in - sin, in the deceiving conviction that this is no longer an evil, and even that it is a value and a good.
The times of the general confusion and of the greatest agitation of spirits has come. Confusion has entered into the souls and the lives of many of my children. This great apostasy is spreading more and more, even through the interior of the Catholic Church. Errors are being taught and spread about, while the fundamental truths of the faith, which the authentic Magisterium of the Church has always taught and energetically defended against any heretical deviation whatsoever, are being denied with impunity. The episcopates are maintaining a strange silence and are no longer reacting. When my Pope speaks with courage and reaffirms with force the truths of the Catholic faith, he is no longer listened to and is even publicly criticized and derided.
There is a subtle and diabolical tactic, woven in secrecy by Masonry, which is used today against the Holy Father in order to bring ridicule upon his person and his work and to neutralize his Magisterium. Victims of the great apostasy are those children of mine who, often unknowingly, allow themselves to be carried along by this wave of errors and of evil.
Victims of the great apostasy are many bishops, priests, religious and faithful. In these times, in the Catholic Church, there will remain a little remnant who will be faithful to Christ, to the Gospel, and to its entire truth. The little remnant will form a little flock, all guarded in the depths of my Immaculate Heart.
This little flock will be made up of those bishops, priests, religious and faithful who will remain strongly united to the Pope, all gathered together in the cenacle of my Immaculate Heart, in an act of unceasing prayer, of continual immolation, of total offering to prepare the painful way for the second and glorious coming of my Son Jesus.
On this feast of mine in this Marian Year, I address to all those who wish to become part of the little flock the motherly invitation to consecrate themselves to my Heart, to live in intimacy of life with me, to become my courageous apostles in these last times, because the moment when my Immaculate Heart must be glorified before all the Church and before all humanity has come.” (June 11, 1988)
I wanted to cite these two long passages, because in them Our Lady explains to us in great detail from what gives birth to the apostasy: "new and updated forms of the word of God" that produce serious errors and with the errors there is born the confusion, the confusion is propagated with the teachings especially in seminaries and from the seminaries come out Priests, Bishops and Religious: so the Church is hit in the heart.
This Masonic plan has been running already before the Second Vatican Council, with the Modernist error that great and holy Popes, bluntly, have long condemned: St. Pius X, Blessed Paul VI, St. John Paul II. I would note that the Pope, of which Our Lady speaks in this message, it is St. John Paul II, not others.
And after all these obvious signs of errors on basic truths of faith, from which we have been warned, today sin is presented as progress, stating that "God always forgives. Hell does not exist. God is merciful ..." so ... communion for all! How did we arrive to this point? Today people are talk a lot about accompaniment, discernment, but Jesus does not speak about discerning according to each case: here many virtually defend errors.
I would not like, that also we of the M.M.P. might marry the logic of the world, which is used every time you use `situation ethics’, the so-called ‘case by case', or `logic of but, or of also ', while claiming to hold together the opposites: a logic that the world particularly likes and we see how the world applauds this every day. This is certainly not a good sign!
The Christian, when he is consistent, is persecuted by the world, not applauded: "Woe to you, when all men speak well of you" (Lk 6:26).
This, dear friends, is what:
- we profess as a Movement in the consecration we make,
- Jesus asks of his ministers,
- the Church announced also with the Blood of the Martyrs.
This is why Our Lady wanted this her WORK, NOT to say: "Let's see ... let us not create scandal ... when you disagree ... it's not time yet..." and in the meantime many souls are lost. In these days I read an example, perhaps trivial, but very significant, "Today to promote certain changes in doctrine, in pastoral and in morals, we use the method of slicing salami: cut a slice at a time, the salami is finished and no one notices it."
In 1917 at Fatima, Our Lady showed hell to the three shepherds. She is very worried about this, asking us to help her, because the time is short and we ... act like we are deaf!
“The second Pentecost will come like a river of grace and of mercy which will purify the Church and make her poor and chaste, humble and strong, without spot or wrinkle, all beautiful, in imitation of your heavenly Mother. You are here to be molded by me in order to become the new heart of this Church, completely renewed by the Spirit.
For this reason, you must allow yourselves to be formed by me in order to arrive at a complete change of heart. Let your heart become meek and humble, gentle and merciful, sensitive and pure. Let your heart be a chalice filled with smooth balm which runs over and flows down to close open and bleeding wounds; to comfort innumerable sufferings and sorrows; to give hope to the desperate, grace to sinners, comfort to the ailing, help to the needy, peace to the distressed, courage to the disheartened.
The second Pentecost will come like a dew upon the world and will transform the desert into a garden, in which all humanity will run, like a spouse, to meet her Lord, in a renewed covenant of love with Him.
Thus the Most Holy Trinity will receive its great glory, and Jesus will restore his glorious reign of love among you. For this reason, you must become the silent and courageous artisans of this general renewal.
Take into your priestly arms this poor ailing humanity and bring it to the maternal clinic of my Immaculate Heart, that it may be healed by your heavenly Mother. You do this when you bring everyone - priests, faithful, children, youth and families to the consecration to my Immaculate Heart.” (June 28, 1990)
Take courage, dear brother priests, the Church needs:
- to be renewed, to be made Poor, Chaste, Humble, Strong.
- to return to being the true church.
The M.M.P. needs to be renewed:
- to give Hope to the many disheartened,
- to give peace and salvation to sinners.
Simply put, it is necessary that this desert is transformed into a garden where the Most Holy Trinity may be praised by all creatures, but especially by the man.
My dear brothers, let us not disappoint the Mama! Let us welcome what she asks us in the messages and also in what she has transmitted to us over the years through "her little child", Don Stefano.
What must we do today? There are three commitments we have to do. I get this from the circular letter of Don Stefano No. 13 - 8 September 1977. Especially now, after the death of Don Stefano, the M.M.P. needs to remain united. It is a question of committing all of us to being led and formed by Our Lady, who has taken seriously the offer of our priesthood to her Immaculate Heart.
We have to live fraternity, "one heart and one soul" as in the Upper Room. This is `the time'! It seems to me, however, that we are losing this `time', wanting only to organize ... to control ... to traveling ... do things ..., while this is what Our Lady wishes of us:
“This is, for the Church and for all humanity, the time of the Cenacle.
It is the time of the cenacle for the Church, invited by me to enter into the cenacle of my Immaculate Heart. In this new and spiritual cenacle, all the bishops must now enter, so that they may obtain, through prayer made incessantly with me and by means of me, a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit, who opens minds and hearts to receive the gift of divine wisdom; thus, they attain an understanding of the truth, whole and entire, and come to give their full witness to my Son Jesus.
The priests must enter into this new spiritual cenacle so that, by the Holy Spirit, they might be confirmed in their vocation and, by prayer made with me and by means of me, they might obtain power, assurance and courage to announce the Gospel of Jesus in all its integrity and to live it to the letter with the simplicity of the little ones who are nourished with joy by every word that comes from the mouth of God.
All the faithful must enter into this new spiritual cenacle, that they may be assisted in living their baptism and receive from the Holy Spirit light and comfort in their daily journey towards sanctity. Only in this way can they become today courageous witnesses of Jesus, risen and living in your midst.
It is the time of the cenacle for this poor humanity, so possessed by the spirits of evil, impelled along the road of pleasure and pride, of sin and impurity, of egoism and unhappiness. Humanity must now enter into the cenacle of my Immaculate Heart: here, as Mother, I will teach it to pray and to repent; I will lead it to penance and conversion, to a change of heart and of life.” (May 22, 1996)
The prayer that Mary asks today.
"Your prayer, made with me, has been a powerful force which you have given me to offer to the justice of the Father and in order to obtain for you, very soon, the rain of fire and of grace of the Holy Spirit, who will renew and transform the whole world, thus bringing to completion the greatest miracle of the merciful love of my Son Jesus.” (July 4, 1986)
“Today the whole world must be brought to the fullness of the truth, to the Gospel of Jesus, to the one Church willed and founded by Christ, and this is achieved by the Holy Spirit. The Church must be opened to his divine fire in such a way that, completely purified, it will be ready to receive the splendor of his new Pentecost, in preparation for the second, glorious coming of my Son Jesus. Today I invite you all to enter into the cenacle of my Immaculate Heart in the expectation of receiving in fullness the Spirit of Love which is given to you as a gift by the Father and the Son. My Immaculate Heart is the golden doorway through which this divine Spirit passes to reach you. And so I invite you to repeat often: `Come, Holy Spirit, come by means of the powerful intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, your well-beloved Spouse’.” (June 7, 1981)
Our Lady tells us that the world and the Church have need of the TRUTH! The only way to be able to find the truth that renews THE FACE OF THE EARTH, as at the first Pentecost, is THE GOLDEN DOOR of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
“For this reason alone I recommend to you to gather together often in your cenacles, in order to give me a great force of prayer, with which I may be able to intervene before my Son Jesus, that He may quickly obtain for you from the Father the gift of a new and second Pentecost for the Church and for all humanity.” (May 26, 1985)
“Come, O Spirit of Love and renew the face of the earth; grant that it may entirely become once again a new garden of grace and of sanctity, of justice and of love, of communion and of peace, so at the Most Holy Trinity may once again be reflected, pleased and glorified.
Come, O Spirit of Love and renew the whole Church; bring it to the perfection of love, of unity and of holiness, that it may become today the greatest of all lights which shines upon all in the great darkness which has spread everywhere.
Come, O Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding, and open the way for hearts to the understanding of the truth, whole and entire. With the burning force of your divine fire, root out every error; sweep away every heresy, so that the light of the truth which Jesus has revealed may shine forth for all in its integrity.
Come, O Spirit of Counsel and Fortitude, and make us courageous witnesses of the Gospel we have received. Sustain the persecuted; encourage the spurned; give strength to the imprisoned; grant perseverance to the downtrodden and tortured; obtain the palm of victory for those who, again today, are being led to martyrdom.
Come, O Spirit of Knowledge, of Piety, and of Fear of God, and renew, with the lymph of your divine love, the life of all those who have been consecrated in Baptism and signed with your seal in Confirmation, of those who have offered themselves in service to God, of the bishops, the priests and the deacons, that they may all be enabled to correspond to your plan which you are bringing about in these times of the second Pentecost, sc long implored and awaited.
Only then will the task which I myself have entrusted to my Marian Movement of Priests be completed. Only then wit there have taken place the triumph of my Immaculate Heart, at the beginning of a time in which the new heavens and the nevi earth will at last be able to be seen by all." (May 26, 1985)
Here Our Lady encourages us the cenacles of prayer. What are they? The cenacles are those moments of prayer where two or more come together, like the Apostles and some pious women were united in one heart and one soul in prayer with Mary in the Upper Room and they obtained the gift of Pentecost. Let me tell you my thoughts, because after the death of Don Stefano there entered a bit of confusion even in the M.M.P.: we must spread the cenacles of prayer, Our Lady will take care of the rest.
In this regard, I'll tell you about an incident that happened to me in block B on the fifth floor. I had returned from the mission and it was a very difficult time for me. I met Mother Speranza, who told me just a few words: "You pray, God does the rest."
Beloved brothers, the Movement is not a question of organization or other things, but it is:
- living with Mary, that is united to Her,
- living like Her, that is in the smallness of spiritual childhood.
It is Her, the Movement is Hers! We have to do what She ask us, not what we want!
This message is very clear: are we fulfilling this her design of the second Pentecost? Why do we deny it, do we not want to recognize that the Church is going through a deep apostasy because of errors, demolition of Truth and infidelity to the Word of God, which is hidden or one interprets it as one likes?
“ - In the light of His Truth, all humanity will understand the abyss into which it has allowed itself to be led by Satan who, in it [humanity] and by means of it, has wanted to repeat the proud gesture of his rejection of God and of his Law. Thus humanity has arrived at building a civilization without God, has given itself a morality contrary to his Law, has justified every form of evil and of sin, and has allowed itself to be seduced by materialism, hatred, violence and impurity. By the divine fire of the Holy Spirit, humanity will be completely purified, that it may again become that new garden where the Most Holy Trinity will receive its greatest glory. It is the testimony of the Holy Spirit which will profoundly renew the Church.
In the light of His Truth, the Church will see herself in all her human weakness and will be healed of her crisis of faith; she will be set free from the snares of errors, which have spread the deep wound of apostasy and infidelity within her. Renewed by the divine fire of the Holy Spirit, the entire Church will reflect the glory of her Lord and will again become a faithful and chaste Spouse, all beautiful, without spot or wrinkle, in imitation of her heavenly Mother. It is the testimony of the Holy Spirit which will bring you to n understanding of the whole and entire truth.
In the light of His Truth, there will become apparent to all the saving power of the Gospel of Jesus, which will spread his divine splendor everywhere. And thus, Jesus will be listened to in his word, followed on the way traced out by Him, imitated in his life, and glorified in his Person. The hour has come when my Son Jesus must be glorified by all. With the prodigy of the second Pentecost, humanity will acknowledge Jesus Christ as its Redeemer and as its only Savior. Then the Holy Spirit will open hearts and souls to welcome Christ, who will return to you in the splendor of his divine glory. Thus my Immaculate Heart will finally attain its great triumph." (May 18, 1997)
“From now on, I will manifest myself through the word, the person and the actions of this, my little son, whom I have chosen to be your guide and whom I am now leading to the painful summit of his mission. All has been revealed to you: my plan has been foretold to you especially in its wonderful and victorious fulfillment. I have announced to you the triumph of my Immaculate Heart in the world. In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph…
The moment has come for you to come out from your hiddenness in order to go and shed light upon the earth. Show yourselves to all as my children, for I am with you always. Let the faith be the light which enlightens you in these days of darkness, and let zeal alone consume you, zeal for the honor and glory of my Son Jesus.
Fight, children of the light, because the hour of my battle has now arrived. In the harshest of winters, you are the buds which are opening up from my Immaculate Heart and which I am placing on the branches of the Church to tell you that her most beautiful springtime is about to arrive. This will be for her the second Pentecost.
For this reason, I invite you to repeat often in the cenacles, the prayer that I have asked of you: `Come, Holy Spirit, come by means of the powerful intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, your well beloved Spouse.'
With the love of a Mother who, during these years, has been listened to, followed and glorified by you, I bless you all in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit." (December 31, 1997)
We absolutely need
of the strength, of the light and of the power of the Holy Spirit:
"Without His strength there is nothing in man, there is no one without fault."
He washes, cleans, cures, heals, bends, straightens. He is relief, shelter, comfort.
Come, Holy Spirit, come by means of the powerful intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, your well-beloved Spouse.
Padre Quartilio Gabrielli

In order to warn people of the hidden but very powerful traps and lies of “the father of lies”, Satan (Jn 8:44), I gave to several people at the monthly cenacle of the Marian Movement of Priests, printed copies of “The History of Communion in the Hand” and “Signs of God vs. Signs of Satan” on December 13, 2016. When the responsible of the M.M.P. for the zone of Umbria, Italy, Don Roberto, discovered this, after the Mass on this same day during the Cenacle, in the sacristy, he was very upset with me and told me to not give out my written works to people at the Cenacle. Later that evening, after returning home from the Cenacle, I sent the following email to Don Roberto.
Dear Don Roberto,
I would like to ask you a question. What is more important, the salvation of the souls or human respect?
If Jesus was worried about his group of apostles and disciples, why did he go to the crucifixion? The same question for the prophets of the Old Testament, and the martyrs throughout the centuries?
As you know, there is less prayer than ever before, more sin than ever before, even worse, indifference as if sin does not even exist, and thus we have given great power to “the father of lies”, Satan (Jn 8:44). In particular Satan has more power to “disguises himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14), to offer his beautiful deadly lies as if there were “the truth that sets us free” (Jn 8:32)! And so, where are the pastors to warn the sheep of these hidden but very powerful poisons of the wolf that leads away the sheep?
You indicated that you were worried about the schism! But now people are becoming more and more spiritually asleep and there are very few pastors who have the courage to warn the sheep of the great dangers today. Where are the true pastors to warn the sheep of these very powerful hidden poisons? What is more important here? Where are the pastors like Jesus? “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep” (Jn 10:11).
When there will be this open schism next year, on which side will you be, on the side of the few priests and bishops who remain faithful to the teaching of the Church of 2000 years, which does not change, with the risk of persecution, or on the side of the great majority of priests and bishops cho do not want to loose their little groups or the approval of the parishioners or of their superiors here on earth? Do we follow God o do we follow men? Who can offer us eternal life, men or God? What are we afraid of? Who do we trust, God or men or ourselves?
“So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven; but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven” (Mt 10:32-33)
“You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts; for what is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God” (Lk 16:14-15).
“Woe to you, when all men speak well of you, for so their fathers did to the false prophets” (Lk 6:26). “For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God” (Jn 12:43). “How can you believe, who receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?” (Jn 5:44; 12,43; Rom 2:29; 1Cor 4:5; Gal 1:10).
“On several occasions, I have learned how some religious defend their own glory under the pretext of being concerned for the glory of God, whereas it is not a question of the glory of God, but of glory of self. O Jesus, how painful this has been for me! What secrets the day of Your judgment will bring to light! How can one steal god's gifts? (Diary of St. Faustina, 1149)
Did you meditate well on the two meditation given by Padre Gabrielli Quartillo at the International Spiritual Exercises of 2016, “The Movement as Work of Mary” and “The Holy Spirit and the M.M.P.”???
Considering this “ERA OF COMPROMISE”, in the final message of the Blessed Virgin, October 13, 1973, on the anniversary of the last apparition and of the miracle of FATIMA, at Akita, Japan, She said to Sister Agnes Sasagawa: “As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the DELUGE, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms that will remain for you will be the Rosary and Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. WITH THE ROSARY, PRAY FOR THE POPE, THE BISHOPS, AND THE PRIESTS. The work of the devil will infiltrate even the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their conferees…churches and altars sacked, THE CHURCH WILL BE FULL OF THOSE WHO ACCEPT COMPROMISE and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord. The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of My sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.” (http://www.miraclerosarymission.org/akita.htm).
The first priority of a great number of priests and bishops today is to have the least problems possible, without asking themselves the question, “What would Jesus want in this situation?” What are the priorities of Jesus, and what are our priorities as priests or bishops? The salvation of souls by way of the lived truth, or human respect?
Certainly, I am convinced that next year there will be the schism. Slowly there are more and more priests and bishops who have the courage to be with the four cardinals who wrote the “Dubia”. I am convinced that when this schism will be out in the open, more people will wake up, and they will ask themselves the question, why are these cardinals, bishops and priests who are asking this question of the pope, “Dubia”? Precisely for this reason Bergoglio did not respond to the cardinals in order not to wake up the souls of the very negative fruits caused by the great confusion caused by Amoris Laetitia. Before, the majority of Catholics understood that to have sex outside of marriage was a grave, mortal sin. Now the majority believe that you can live together and receive the (false) “mercy” without any commitment to repent or change one’s life and live what we say in the Act of Contrition: “I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasions of sin” (sin according to God explained by His Church, the Magisterium of the Church, not according to the relativism of each person nor according to the world!)!

HERE ARE SOME WORDS OF OUR LADY TO DON STEFANO GOBBI:
“You have now arrived at the moment of your immolation; you are being called to suffer more and more.
Give me all your suffering. Today it is the misunderstandings, the attacks, the calumnies of your brothers. Tomorrow it will be persecutions, imprisonment, condemnations on the part of atheists and enemies of God who will see in you the obstacles that must be eliminated.
Walk with me, and follow me along the path of my Son Jesus, along the way of Calvary, along the way of the Cross. m Never as in these moments will you have to live so profoundly that which is the vocation of every Christian: 'He who wishes to come after Me must deny himself, take up his cross and follow Me!' (Mt 16:24)
Follow me, beloved sons: today it is necessary to follow your Mother if you want to travel without fear the path of my Son Jesus."
(May 28, 1976)
"Beloved sons, let your hearts never be disturbed by the attacks against my Movement, which are becoming increasingly frequent.
This is my work alone, and it corresponds to a special plan of my Immaculate Heart.
Difficulties, misunderstandings and sufferings are permitted by me that this work of mine may be purified yet more. I want it to be purified of every human element that it may thus reflect only my most pure light.
I want to cover all my beloved sons, the priests consecrated to my Immaculate Heart, with this most pure light.
This is why I ask you for complete detachment from all persons, that I may give you true purity of heart. Every human attachment to yourselves, to creatures and to the world beclouds your interior purity…
How many of my poor priest-sons have ended up by being totally of the world and have become its prisoners.
My Son Jesus saved this world above all when, to be faithful to the Will of the Father, He detached Himself from everyone to be raised up from the earth and hung upon the Cross.
You will begin to bring back many souls to my Son when, like Him, you also will be raised up from the earth. You must become accustomed to being raised up even now, spiritually speaking, by interior detachment from everyone.
Thus you will possess true purity of heart. And you will be truly capable of loving, even to the supreme test.
You will always be carried by your Mother, who knows where and how to lead you, that in each one of you the design of the Father's Will may be realized."
(May 3, 1976)
“And the more you witness to this complete obedience to the Church, the more you will be criticized, ridiculed and persecuted. But it is necessary that yours be an increasingly painful and crucifying witness in order to help many of my poor children to remain, even today in truth and in fidelity.”
(April 13, 1976)
“I need you, my beloved sons, to form you into victims worthy of being offered to the divine justice.
And so you will be called more and more to suffer. The hours of agony and passion are drawing closer to you.”
(April 3, 1976)
(Feast of the Presentation of the Child Jesus; February 2, 1976)
Sign of contradiction.
"Do not be troubled, my sons, if you are not understood by some and if on the contrary you are openly criticized and persecuted. My Heart permits this to accustom you not to rely on any creature, but on me alone. Beloved sons, lean on my Immaculate Heart alone…
By your word, which will repeat ever more loudly and clearly the truth which my Son Jesus has come to reveal to you. Do you see how many of your brother-priests betray this truth, in the attempt to adapt it to the mentality of the world, impelled by a false illusion of being better understood, listened to by more people and more easily followed? No illusion is more dangerous than this…
By your witness, which must be a light and example for all the Church. It has been ordained by the Father that yours be a witness which will become more and more painful. I repeat, my sons; the road upon which I am leading you is that of the Cross.
Do not fear if you become increasingly the target of misunderstandings, criticisms and persecutions. It is necessary that this happen to you because, as was my Son Jesus, so also are you being called today to be a sign of contradiction.
The more you are followed, the more you will be rejected and persecuted.
YOU WILL SOON BE CALLED UPON TO STRUGGLE OPENLY when my Son Jesus, myself, the Church and the Gospel are attacked.”
“This real division within my Church, this real apostasy on the part of so many of my priest-sons, will become accentuated and thus develop into a violent and open rebellion…
What now awaits you, my most beloved sons, is nothing less than your COMPLETE SACRIFICE for the salvation of the world and the purification of the earth.”
(December 31, 1975)
“I have need of all your sufferings: this is the most precious weapon that can be used in this battle of mine. So I ask you to be prepared to suffer, to get ready to climb Calvary with Jesus and me, to offer yourselves to the Father as victims chosen by me and long prepared with motherly care.
You too will be scoffed at, betrayed and persecuted with the Vicar of my Son, the Pope. Many will have to give their lives and shed their blood. The others will remain to be consumed as a holocaust, by living through these moments of great suffering which are in preparation for the purification of the earth. Thus you will be my light in the great darkness.
But this most severe trial, my beloved sons, will be of short duration. Through my special intervention, these hours will be shortened. And soon there will shine forth upon a renewed world the triumph of my Immaculate Heart."
(November 25, 1975)
“Priests of my Movement, beloved sons of my sorrowful Heart, do you wish to accept my gentle invitation to suffer with me? …
If the chastisement comes, it will be only as an ultimate and solemn demand for suffering to bring about the renewal of the world and the salvation of so many poor children of mine.
But nothing contributes so much to the triumph of my Immaculate Heart as a priestly heart which suffers. In you, my sons, it is Jesus who continues his mission of purification. Only his blood can wash away all the evil, all the hatred and all the sin of the world.
And so, now that the moment of the purification is here, you will be called upon to suffer more and more. For you, my sons, this is the hour of the cross. But you will suffer with me, with your Mother who begot you under the Cross.
Be ever with me, in the present moment which the Father gives you: to offer and to suffer in the Heart of your sorrowful Mother."
(September 15, 1975)
“This is the cross which Jesus now asks you to carry: to live side by side with brother-priests who no longer believe, who spiritually are no longer alive, who betray the Gospel, who are unfaithful servants and yet remain in the Church to be ministers of this infidelity.
This is for you the heaviest of crosses, but it enters into a greater plan of mine. The decisive events have already begun, and the one you are living through is the beginning of these.”
(July 9, 1975)
“The time has come when some of my priest-sons are preparing to openly oppose my Son, myself, the Pope and the Church.
I will then be no longer able to recognize them as my children; I myself will come down from heaven to place myself at the head of the cohort of my beloved sons, and I will crush their plots.
After a great upheaval and the purification of the earth, my Immaculate Heart will sing of its victory in the greatest triumph of God.
It is for this moment, my beloved priests, that I have called you one by one from all parts of the world and have made you ready.
This is no longer a time for doubt and uncertainty: this is the time of battle!”
(April 25, 1975)
“Now that I have detached you from everything to make you ready to do the Will of the Father, and formed you once again into little children to make you priests according to the Heart of Jesus, the time has come when you are being called to climb CALVARY with Him. …
This then is your hour, and this is why I am calling you to nothing but prayer, suffering and a total immolation of yourselves. Forget every other preoccupation, and entrust yourselves to me; and by your great love, second this plan of my Immaculate Heart."
(March 28, 1975)
“Each of the priests of my Movement … Oh, and even they in great part will be called to the ULTIMATE TESTIMONY. But their blood will wash and purify this world, so that from it a new world may be born, renewed in love and consecrated anew to the triumph of God!"
(December 26, 1974)
“All the sick and the suffering whom you see everywhere, these too are my privileged children. They remind you of the value of suffering, of the necessity to suffer.”
(Lourdes, April 30, 1974)
“I will lead you to a complete emptiness of all human support and to a more total abandonment, so that you may at last learn to do that which pleases me most and that which I am always asking of you: entrust yourself to me alone; let yourself be always led by me; expect everything, and ask everything of me.”
(April 18, 1974)
“Many priests, uncertain and, as it were, overwhelmed by the tempest, will follow you example and return along the road of salvation. For the present, prepare yourself with me during this time of waiting.”
(January 17, 1974)
“Comforters, because they will alleviate his abandonment and his suffering and will not be afraid to share, as he does, the same fate that today awaits those whom I have prepared for the ultimate sacrifice for the salvation of the world.”
(October 30, 1973)
Dear Don Roberto,
This is why I have spent more than an hour before the tabernacle in the last 16 years, to be ready to die for the truth, who is Jesus (Jn 14:6).
“Above all, I bring you gently before the divine Person of my Son Jesus present, as in heaven, in the sacrament of the Eucharist. You acquire from me a taste for prayer. Prayer of adoration, prayer of thanksgiving, prayer of reparation.”
(July 16, 1976)

Don Roberto responded to my email the following day on December 14, 2016.
What is more important, the salvation of the souls or human respect?
Dear Joseph, I do not fear human respect, only that one must be prudent. Being part of the Marian Movement of Priests we have a great responsibility. We are observed and we can harm the Movement. As soon as Brother Raphael had a copy of your article in his hands, he showed it immediately to the superior who criticized it.
We cannot permit this. Already last year at Gubbio with Father Fausto. We must be prudent. Outside of the Movement do what you like, but inside YOU CANNOT DO IT.
I hope this might be the last time that you distribute those articles. I say this to you even if I agree with what you write.
- - - - - - -
The follow is my email to Don Roberto.
January 10, 2017
Dear Don Roberto,
You did not comment on what I wrote in my email. You do not invite me to dialogue with you to resolve the more important issues together. So speak with the priests with whom you trust, with whom you are willing to dialogue, with the priests who are in agreement with you, with the priests who are at your level of prudence, of wisdom and of intelligence.
I realize that at least years ago few priests received a human formation in the seminary which facilitated resolving the more important problems together, and thus one leans on the structure of obedience without dialogue. In short, your email to me was: shut up and obey (“eat and shut up” as the fascists would say), even though Our Lady said in the Blue Book:
“Let there be no leader among you. I myself will be your Leader. You must all be brothers: loving, understanding and helping each other” (Our Lady to Don Stefano Gobbi, July 16, 1973).
“Therefore there should be no leader among you: you are all brothers, united in love that must grow ever more and more” (Our Lady to Don Stefano Gobbi, August 22, 1976).
But without a certain amount of human maturity, it is very difficult to live these words of Our Lady.
Pope John Paul II spoke and wrote often about the importance of dialogue among Christians and especially among priests, to seek the truth and solutions together. One finds very often in the Blue Book Our Lady’s insistence to become “small” or “little” which also means to seek the truth and solutions outside of our own heads. I wrote about this difficult challenge to dialogue in my article, “The Great Responsibility of Religious Leaders” (http://josephdwight.wordpress.com/2014/08/07/great-responsibility/).
I am not interested in having a title (I am interested in only heaven!), but it is interesting to me that even though I have been attending the Cenacles of Umbria for more than 6 years, Don Mario tried to find any other priest but Don Jo to take his place. Maria Tiberini, who has been part of the movement for many years, said to me that she did not know who Don Roberto was. Even though Our Lady indicated many time in the Blue Book that the majority of the few priests who remain faithful to the Truth in this period of the great apostasy (2Thess 2:3-4; CCC 675) will have to sacrifice themselves as Jesus Priest did 2000 years ago on the cross (cf. CCC 677), Don Mario found a seer who says that the good priests will be spared in this period of the “great tribulation” (Mt 24:21). Don Mario said to a few people that Don Jo says the truth but he says the truth in too strong of a way! I do not believe that Jesus and Saint Peter and Saint Paul and Saint Steven and many prophets of the Old Testament (and perhaps in the future, Cardinal Raymond Burke and others) would have been killed if they had your prudence and wisdom! How many priests, bishops and politicians try to be “politically correct” and end up serving the agenda of the Freemasons?!?
In your homilies and your meditations during the Cenacles, I do not recall when you cited from the Blue Book nor from the words of Don Stefano Gobbi. What movement are you a part of?
As I wrote in my email, a fundamental job of a pastor is to protect the sheep from the very destructive and hidden lies and strategies of the wolf today. Certainly, there is lacking today good homilies and meditations as were given years ago, but due to less prayer than ever before and more sin and indifference than ever before, we have given more power than ever to the wolf, Satan, to deceive and offer new and poisonous lies to the sheep today.
CONFUSION DOES GREAT HARM TO THE CHURCH AND TO SOULS.
“We need to give witness to what the Church has always taught and practiced, and that way we remain serene, we don’t give way to confusion, and even division as it can often happen in the Church otherwise.”
December 19, 2016
La confusione fa tanto male alla Chiesa e alle anime.
“Card. Burke: I dubia devono avere risposta. Non sono divisivi, ma cercano di sanare una divisione”
“Saint Thomas writes (ad Gal.2.14): “Being in approximate danger to the faith, the prelates must be reproved, even publically, by those who are their subjects. And so Saint Paul, who was subject to Saint Peter, reproved him publically, by reason of an imminent danger of scandal in matters of faith.”
And Saint Augustine comments: “The same Saint Peter gave an example to those who govern, so that they, drifting away sometimes from the right path, do not refuse and undue a correction coming also from their subjects.”
Referring again to the public criticism of Saint Paul to Saint Peter, Saint Thomas writes: “The admonition was just and useful, and his motive was not of small account: there was involved facts of a danger per the preservation of the evangelical faith… the method of the admonition was suitable, because it was public and manifest. Thus Saint Paul writes: “I spoke to Cefa, that is to Peter before all” because the simulation given by Saint Peter gave rise to a danger for all.”
This is the spirit, therefore, in which the critic of the doctrines and of the gestures which follow will be taken up, with the due piety of a son towards his own spiritual father, visible head of the holy Church of God. The declarations (or gestures) treated will regard only three determining points: 1) Ecumenism, 2) Eroticism, and 3) Adultery. (after the article is: “One cannot remain silent”).”
Pope: ‘Malicious resistance’ to my reforms that ‘takes refuge in traditions’ is from the devil
Gli auguri del Papa alla curia: "Ecco la mia riforma, le resistenze malevole sono ispirate dal demonio"
BEHOLD HOW “POPE FRANCIS” INVITES DIALOGUE SO AS TO SEEK THE TRUTH FROM GOD (NOT FROM MAN) TOGETHER!!! VS. “THE SAME SAINT PETER GAVE AN EXAMPLE TO THOSE WHO GOVERN”! The four cardinals only asked for clarity in the teaching of the Church for the true good of souls!!!
Climate of fear in Vatican is very real
Dec 16, 2016
In Vaticano regna un vero e proprio clima di paura
18 dicembre 2016
You wrote to me: “inside YOU CANNOT DO IT”. And I say to you, “inside YOU CANNOT DO IT”, that is, you cannot, as pastor, not warn the souls entrusted to you about the beautiful lies more hidden and more dangerous and powerful, in the history of the Church, from the “father of lies (Jn 8:44)!!! I say to you, “inside YOU CANNOT DO IT”, that is, as a responsible of the Marian Movement of Priests, before God (not before men!), you cannot not follow the messages of Our Lady in the Blue Book, and you cannot not follow the words of the founder, Don Stefano Gobbi, explained well for today in the two meditations offered by Padre Gabrielli Quartilio in the International Spiritual Exercises of the Marian Movement of Priests, June 26 to 02 July, 2016, “The Movement as Work of Mary” and “The Holy Spirit and the M.M.P.!!!
IN THE NAME OF (with the motive of) SAVING THE GROUP, YOU DO NOT SPEAK ABOUT THOSE THINGS THAT THE AUTHORITY TODAY (civil and ecclesiastical) DOES NOT WANT, AND THUS YOU DO NOT PROTECT THE SOULS FROM THE GRAVE AND HIDDEN DANGERS TO THE SOULS!!! There is a contradiction here, there is a lack of pastors ready to loose everything and to give their lives for the sheep (Jn 10:11)!
This is similar to what is happening in the parishes today, with the Catholics further away from living the Gospel explained by the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (CCC) than ever before. So the great majority of the pastors, under pressure from the parishioners and not supported by their bishops, NO LONGER OFFER THE WHOLE TRUTH NOR OFFER WARNINGS about the new and more dangerous snares of the devil today, so as to prune the vine (Jn 15:2; Mt 7:19), with the real risk of loosing many parishioners who do not want to seek and live the will of God, so as to offer the possibility of new growth. Instead most pastors maintain a culpable silence, without seeking to offer by example and word what is best for the souls entrusted to them, and so the churches are slowly emptying since a solid authentic religion is not offered according to the true Gospel explained by the CCC. In such parishes, people come not to live the Our Father, “THY will be done”, but for other personal motives. When they no longer have these motives, they no longer come to church.
Behold why so many pastors and bishops offer false love, false mercy and misguided compassion! Behold why one of the first priorities of secular feminism is to communicate to women to not respect nor inspire the God-given vocation of their husbands, and to remove the father as head of the family. Behold why Our Lady of Akita (Japan, 1973) told us that in this period “the Church will be full of those who accept compromise”!
As it was explained in the meditations in the International Spiritual Exercises of the Marian Movement of Priests, June 26 to 02 July, 2016, we are in the period when the Body of Christ, the Church, will be crucified (CCC 677). During the crucifixion of Jesus 2000 years ago, almost everyone abandoned Jesus, the Truth (Jn 14:6), covered with blood and humiliated!
ARE WE READY TO PUT GOD FIRST IN OUR LIVES, and even suffer and die for Jesus when Cesar wants to force us to deny our faith and to deny Jesus? “Everyone who acknowledges me before men, the Son of man also will acknowledge before the angels of God; but he who denies me before men will be denied before the angels of God” (Lk 12:8-9). "Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesars, and to God the things that are Gods" (Mt 22:21). BUT WHEN THERE ARE IN CONFLICT, in contrast, in opposition, I chose God. With all the words and empty promises, Cesar cannot give us happiness for eternity!
Dear Don Roberto,
I am willing to come to the Cenacles in Umbria to help out with the confessions. But considering how you have treated me recently, if you give me any indication that you do not want me at the Cenacles in Umbria or if you threaten me, I will be more happy to not come to the Cenacles in Umbria where the responsible does not dialogue with me to decide the more important matters together.
Do not telephone me. Precisely because there is no invitation to seek solutions together with dialogue but rather to put in line the other person according to one’s own head, if you say something to me at the Cenacle, I will only respond, good day, have a nice day or best wishes, and nothing else.
Don Jo (Joseph) Dwight
Regarding this timidity, Our Lady often speaks to the priests of the M.M.P.; as an example:
“How much my motherly Heart is saddened by the doubt and mistrust which is taking more and more hold of the souls of so many of my priest-sons! Why do you doubt? Of what are you afraid? Jesus redeemed you from the Evil One at the very hour of his triumph: `This is the hour of Satan and of the power of darkness.' (cf. Lk 22:53) My Son Jesus gave you life for ever at the very hour when He was slain on the Cross. At the moment of his death, He set all of you free from death. My Church, of which I am the Mother, lives again the life of Christ and is now called to tread the same path He trod. Of what, then, are you afraid? Of a world that has hurled itself with violent hatred against you? Of Satan who has succeeded in making his way into the heart of the Church and of reaping his victims from among its very pastors? Or of the error which menaces it, or the sin which darkens it more and more, or the infidelity which floods it? This, my beloved sons, is for my Church still the hour of Satan and of the power of darkness. It will be also immolated like Christ on the Cross and be called to die for the salvation and the renewal of the world. And since this is the hour of your purification, it is above all the hour of your suffering. Could it perhaps be this that you fear? But what if the Father has called you now, one by one, from all eternity for this hour? And what if your heavenly Mother has long since chosen you and prepared you for this hour? Live then in serenity of spirit and without fear, even in the midst of the anxieties and threats of your time. And so I say again: do not be always peering into the future to see what is going to happen. Live only the present moment with trust and complete abandonment, in this Heart of mine." (December 4, 1976)
“Do you see how many of your brother-priests betray this truth, in the attempt to adapt it to the mentality of the world, impelled by a false illusion of being better understood, listened to by more people and more easily followed? No illusion is more dangerous than this… You will soon be called upon to struggle OPENLY when my Son Jesus, myself, the Church and the Gospel are attacked. Then only, led by me by the hand, should you come out in the open to at last give your public witness.” (February 2, 1976)
“Never as in these moments will you have to live so profoundly that which is the vocation of every Christian: 'He who wishes to come after Me must deny himself, take up his cross and follow Me!' (Mt 16:24)” (May 28, 1976)
