It has always facinated me to see people praying, and this happens usually at Catholic Adoration Chapels anywhere. To pray is to recognize one's limitations right away, and so it is an act of humility.
One prays because the person is aware that he or she cannot do it alone, or knows that things have gone beyond one's capacity.
Or one prays because he or she is happy and wants to thank God and glorify Him.
Yet another may pray because someone has asked him or her for prayers. Now when a person prays for someone, it is that the person hopes something good will happen to that someone ---be it landing a job that he or she needs, or getting well from an illness, or undoing oneself from a bind ---in any case, it is a prayer for that someone's well being.
Now whenever the person does so, the Lord Who lies in wait to hear His children, is delighted at this act of unselfishness. And He takes delight in the person the more.
In truth, whenever we pray for others, we actually 'pray' for ourselves.
May the Lord be praised forever!

I assisted at Mass today at St Bartholomew. Father Ricardo and Father Victor concelebrated the Mass together. Deacon Bill was assisting.
Father Ricardo confirmed that the standards of the Gospel are high. They have to be so because we humans aspire to be Christ-like.
He said that we cannot possibly attain this goal on our own. If we try to, we'll disappoint ourselves. The resolution is that we are a sacramental people. We must constantly approach the throne of grace, the source of living water.
He concluded the homily by quoting Pope Benedict XVI, saying that we are not made for comfort. We are created for greatness.
Thank you, Lord!
(LET'S PRAY) Hail Mary...

(As I was finishing making a final copy of the book)
My Children, all that I had to say to humanity
at the threshold of the end of the millennium is said.
And this is My farewell, after having bellowed to the world
the latest cry of My Mercy.
If you were able to arrive at this page,
going through the previous volumes of the Great Crusade,
it is because you are truly interested in My Word,
and if My Word interests you,
it is because you are one of Mine.
Otherwise, as have many other children,
you would have left the book on the first pages
upon coming up against your conscience.
Do you accept this GREAT CRUSADE OF LOVE,
OF MERCY AND OF SALVATION?
Do you want to be part of it?
Do you truly want to help Me save humanity?
If you do, light up your small torch from the immeasurable light,
which My hand is passing to you,
and run to set the world ablaze
because that which is lukewarm causes Me nausea…
Dear man of the twentieth century,
little child of pain and of ignorance,
your God lowers Himself to your misery,
in order to lift you up from the dark dust of apostasy,
and to elevate you toward the greatness of the true Faith.
I come with open arms in order to embrace you.
My hands are open and warm in order to caress you.
I want to place My heart next to yours,
so that your heart can catch the love that I feel for you,
with the desire that you also pass it on to your brothers.
Do you want to come into My arms?

THE HOLY FAMILY SPEAKS TO YOU
Part 4 of 4 CS-144 29-Mar-98
My children, one can already observe from afar
that a new light and new possibilities
related to the expansion of My Kingdom of love
will come to you.
With a lightning triumph and with the light of the early Church,
precious gems will arrive,
whose light will smooth out the way
for the men and women of good will.
I call everyone to humble prayer,
in order that My graces may not become useless
by virtue of the many to whom My graces are being directed.
All of you feared the future
when years ago I began to warn you that I would return,
that I would manifest Myself,
that there would be darkness
and that I would do great things in order that man see My power.
Why did you fear?
Could you not continue to trust in Me?
Do you not know then, that what Heaven wants,
is either kept hidden or presented cloaked in darkness?
I will come.
I will truly come for sure and I will keep My Word.
But I will come with an effusion of light, of new Grace.
Faith is My gift,
sublime and much greater than the eyes of the body,
which I also have given you.
I will give to My Spouse on earth a new decorum
and new human robes and a marvelous increase in interior vitality.
Blessed are My true children.
From this moment I bless you
because you will welcome the light that I will send,
and through it, you will be renewed and made beautiful.
Thus then, I will come, and now you know how!
My parents have spoken to all of you, and I want you to ponder.
Think about the reason that impelled Me and still does
to almost annihilate Myself in order to be with you,
in order to make Myself an equal with you,
in one word, for love.
Now, what is missing is the other parity: yours.
Yes, now all of you must become Me,
as I have made Myself and am one with you...
Who wants this?
Who wants not only My honors, but also to get so absorbed in Me
as to become another Me?
Who wants to make the exchange?
Behold what I offer you at the conclusion of this romance:
for Me the crib, and for you Heaven;
for Me the cold, and for you fire;
for Me compassion for having formed a gentle nature;
for you joy if you lose yourselves
by completely melting into my Divine nature.
This piece of Heaven that I have given to My secretary
has the purpose of giving you a little taste of the Divine nectar
which flows from My wounded Heart.

THE HOLY FAMILY SPEAKS TO YOU
Part 3 of 4 CS-144 29-Mar-98
THE MOST BLESSED MOTHER
The dignity that You have bestowed on Me of begetting You
is such that I was stunned.
The strength that You gave Me was simply miraculous,
as was seen during My childbirth.
The love I received from You that night
would be enough to set afire the whole of Paradise,
Purgatory and earth.
To set afire, I say, in such a way
that all of the inhabitants of each place would become,
had they not already, eternal torches
of most pure and splendid Divine love.
Jesus, You have given Me so much;
You have given Me everything,
You, who has all and can do all.
Oh, Love of Your Mama,
Oh eternal joy and radiant, unique Light,
a Son of Mine You are,
and I am forever Your Mother!
If back then in Bethlehem, I wanted to remain hidden with You,
full of You and happy because of You.
Now I want to say to all, that Jesus is not only Mine, He is yours.
He is ours!
So many years ago in misery,
Wealth appeared and was placed in My hands.
Today in the middle of your misery, appear a Mother and a Son,
who bring all of Love’s riches,
and They dispense them to whoever desires them,
to whoever seeks them,
to whoever longs for them.
You who hear Me, stop refusing the gifts that I am offering you,
because I do not like to see you reluctant or worse.
I am your Mother. You must listen to Me
because I desire only your good.
I always take care of you;
moreover, I cannot be indifferent towards anything that concerns you.
What kind of Mother would I be?
You know it.
I am Jesus’ Mother;
I am the Mother who can do all and loves all.
But now enough thinking of Me so much...
Lose yourselves in Him...

THE HOLY FAMILY SPEAKS TO YOU
Part 2 of 4 CS-144 29-Mar-98
THE MOST BLESSED MOTHER
Have all of you heard with what gracious words
Joseph, My husband, speaks about Me and about My Jesus?
The ardent love that inflames him,
who was held as His father although he was but His Guardian,
burns from His spirit in its full manifestation.
Now he wants Me to speak to you
about the wondrous joy I experienced in having received,
and then having given to mankind the sweet flower of Heaven,
Jesus Most Blessed.
Oh little children!
To be a mother is an ever-singular joy
because the woman who knows about procreating,
feels something rather superhuman inside of her.
This warms her heart and makes her dream with open eyes.
I, a young mom, experienced very different feelings
when, nearing the time of My childbirth,
I was about to give to all in Heaven and on earth My blessed Son.
The Eternal One had placed Joseph at My side,
and He availed Himself of him to assist Me
in ways sometimes prodigious.
My husband not only devoted himself in a touching manner
to obtaining relief for Me on that night
but also, in the darkness in which we found ourselves,
he was forewarned interiorly and prevented Me
from falling into a rather big hole a few steps away from Bethlehem.
Thus, as I was saying, I was in need of help,
of guidance and the Most High provided for Me
and for His most beloved Son by giving Me Joseph.
Indeed during the days that preceded the birth of Jesus,
I lived not on earth but in Heaven,
where the Father surrounded Me with delights and joys,
as He prepared Me for the sublime hour of the birth of His Son.
I was surrounded by all of the Blessed,
by the various angelic orders,
and I received praises and encouragement
in a way difficult to imagine.
Son! My Son! Jesus, how beautiful You are, the Love of Your mama!...
Of all the joys You have given Me
that of Your birth surpasses any word,
because at that moment
You stamped My soul with a seal of fire and honey
that I will not ever forget.

THE HOLY FAMILY SPEAKS TO YOU
Part 1 of 4 CS-144 29-Mar-98
On the final pages that I am sending to humanity
through this Great Crusade of Salvation,
I have instructed My earthly parents to address you today.
Listen to them!
The most beautiful of mothers, the kindest of creatures,
She who amid the glory that surrounds Her,
surpasses the very knowledge of the Angels,
the Cherubim, the Seraphim and of all of the Saints in Heaven,
She offers to all mankind Her great joy of having received
and given the Savior to all.
So listen, oh chosen one, listen to what She has to say,
and let everyone remember that my Spouse possesses such wisdom
that She is invoked precisely as the “Seat of Wisdom”.
Let not my silence and that of Mary’s lead you to believe
that we might be more loving than we are wise.
The gifts bestowed upon us by the Son of Mary
are immeasurable in this area as well,
and if we are silent,
it is almost always due to our great love for concealment,
and to the enormous joy that we experience
upon hearing Him alone speak,
the Word made Man, the Son of our home,
Jesus the Savior, the sublime Virgin’s obedient and loving Offspring,
whom She guarded as the Tabernacle of the Most High.
Oh Mary! Speak to Your children!
I will listen to Your most sweet voice
remembering the Little Child Jesus on the Divine night of Bethlehem.

THE STREAM THAT CONTAINS THE WATER OF MY GRACE
Always first among the brothers, always rich among the poor,
now your Jesus explains to you [Catalina]
why darkness still forms obstacles
to the clarity that you have enjoyed.
Look over there, a stream of clear water runs down a hillside,
and on its banks you see woodlands,
which get their moisture from that stream.
On the way down, there is a cascade
and further down still, a beautiful meadow
where the stream runs peaceful and unobstructed.
All of this is the image of My things and your things.
The stream is the water of My Grace,
which works in you by interior motions with clarity and efficacy.
Grace moistens, so to say, your nature and makes it blossom.
Hence, you, oh woman, reflect yourself in Me
and draw your vigor from Me.
But the stream at a given point forms a small waterfall.
Therein lays the key to what interests you...
In order to reach the meadow and continue on its way smoothly,
a small drop in elevation is needed.
What does it mean?
It means that My work supported on you
must necessarily adapt itself to yourself, rugged terrain,
truly a blind little girl without Me.
So then, you have to reflect on the fact
that the stream is not frightened by the waterfall
because it knows that it can go on.
The one who is frightened is the streambed
because it feels that it has reached its end
at the point of the blessed drop.
And it does not see; it absolutely does not see
that beyond the waterfall there is a safe and fertile way.
This is why it is necessary that you doubt,
in order that faith in Me may grow stronger.
Take heart, little one.
I know that you would like to touch it all with your hand.
I know it! But tell Me: do you want Me to present you
with the gift of My Word precisely without impediments?
And what benefit would you draw for eternal life?
Do you not remember that the light shines in the darkness
and that I also must reward this transcription work of yours?
The reward would be too small;
not for having written many pages,
which is why I allow Satan to mildly bother you,
but in order that I may give you a better crown.
Keep going and follow Me,
not worrying about the foolish remarks that they might make.
Leave the reins in My hands and do not ask Me
if it is I who is in control.
Furthermore, you know that soon you will have a full victory,
and not only over the world, but also over Satan
and over yourself.
One is your way and you are not following it uselessly.
The light indeed is becoming greater
and the hour is coming closer.
The Father, Myself and the Holy Spirit bless you fully
and enjoy the crushing of the bile-filled head of the monstrous angel
by the virginal foot of Mary, My Mother most high.

I KNOW MY SHEEP
Keep going forward, My son, keep going forward;
let nothing deter you from your confident march,
because I am with you.
And if you are leaning on Me,
how can you think that I would not help you
reach the place you desire.
Learn to desire.
Be bold, for you have heard My Word:
“Be perfect as your Father in Heaven is Perfect”!
Alone you can do nothing, but with Me you can do everything.
Hence, I tell you not to remain within yourself,
but pass onto Me and humbly ask Me to move you,
and I will move you.
It is essential that you enter the phase of a lengthy trust.
It is necessary that you understand
that the words of the prayers of all of you
were not formed to strike the air but to touch like arrows,
the heart of the Father who receives them with love.
Every prayer is an arrow.
Let everybody have the great certainty of being heard
by an infinitely paternal God,
and that if He hears you not in your way,
He hears you in another, better way.
But all of you are heard by Someone
who is in the center of your own being.
Beloved son, have faith.
Trust blindly in Me.
I am the Good Shepherd and I know My sheep.
I will never permit that they be lost.

THE LONELINESS OF THE GARDEN
Slowly, with almost no strength,
I had arrived to the foot of the altar
where My sacrifice was about to begin and be consummated.
Dear Peter had believed in My Divinity,
as children believe in their mama,
which is to say without discernment,
due to intense feeling and little comprehension.
Thus, Peter soon began to see Me again as a man,
and to love Me in the simple fashion
that ensues from intense friendship.
But later he became a wholehearted defender of My Divinity.
Upon reaching the foot of the altar
on which I was about to sacrifice Myself,
I was abandoned to Myself not only by Peter
but also by James and John.
Therefore in the solitude, I was overcome by a greater sadness
because in Gethsemane all was heavy and painful for Me
and I was deprived of everything, even the friendship of man.
I could not even see My beloved Father’s countenance.
What a night that was!
What anguish in My Heart over the thought,
over the terrible vision of the sins of mankind!
My children, the Paradise to which I lead you,
consists always in enjoying Me,
not with an egocentric affection but because of pure love for Me.
And therefore, on earth it is essential to learn how to love.
It is necessary to increase, to purify one’s love,
so that the creature can reach Heaven appropriately.
All is to be considered under this view;
otherwise, the soul sails in thick darkness.
You are so fragile, My dear tiny vessels,
that I want to prevent you from crashing against the rocks.
This is why I teach you.
Listen to Me!
