I. Be in the
- We must get and remain in the state of
now for we never know the day nor the hour when God may call us. We
let none of these signs turn us from our Holy Mother Church, but we
cling to our Holy Faith and Trust in God's mercy, He has promised to
the just. Do not offend Him by lack of trust.
- The sacrament of baptism confers Sanctifying Grace on a person
is then said to be in the state of grace. He or she continues in that
after baptism as long as he or she remains without mortal sin. The
(age 7 or above) loses the Sanctifying Grace when he or she commits
sins. The person can regain the Sanctifying Grace by repenting and
absolution in the sacrament of confession when Priests are available.
- "Those who believe my words and spread this message will have
nothing to fear. Those who fight for my cause will receive Grace from
to Face Reality
- There are always some who say they would rather not hear these
because they are frightening these people are like a person who does
want to be told when their house is burning down! Surely it is better
make the endeavor to sanctify ourselves and be saved, than to scoff and
risk our eternal happiness. God sent His Son to suffer and die for our
salvation. God sent His Son to suffer and die for our
He wants us all to behold His Holy Face for eternity.
III. Be A
- We must be true Christians, fervent and zealous for souls.
and obey Priests. Support our Holy Catholic Church, and not only with
and occasional attendance, but with daily Mass and reception of Holy
also with more faithful attendance at the various church devotions:
Novenas, Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament, Holy Hour and
devotions. We should particularly keep Our Lord company during days or
nights of exposition, as prayersbefore the Blessed Sacrament are
the most valuable of all and most beneficial to us.
- We should pray wholeheartedly and steadily for our Holy Father,
Pope, for priests, brothers, nuns, seminarians, postulants, and all
good people who work for our Holy Religion - to give them courage and
to go on in these evil times.
- We should not forget the Poor Souls in Purgatory. We ask them for
and pray for their release.
- Love poverty, abhor possessions, relieve the poor. Jesus gave us
two commandments: Love God and Love each other. We must live
commandments in our daily lives. No one can carry hatred, bitterness,
ill feeling, gossip, backbiting or any such malice into Heaven. The
we truly love God and love our Neighbor, the more we shall be protected
and given special graces.
- Our Lord pleads for generous souls to offer themselves as victims
the salvation of many. This victimhood can be accomplished in countless
ordinary ways: little mortifications, sacrifices and penances - to curb
the tongue of a curt remark, to suffer a headache or pain without
of it, never to complain about anything, to be silent when accused
or unjustly, to deny our senses and appetites, etc. We are asked to
more reparation, as "Many Souls are lost because there is no one
to pray and make sacrifices for them. The prayers and reparation of
faithful souls will work miracles!"
in Prayer and Will to Go to Heaven
- Discouragement is the finest tool of the devil, his opening
Do not give in to it. Persevere in prayer, to keep your adversary from
taking dominion over you. Remember that No one goes to Hell unless
himself wills it. Think of that! You cannot be dragged down to Hell
without your own consent - you yourself have to will to go to Hell.
take courage and Will to go to Heaven where God wants you.
to the Mother of God
- We must have very great devotion and recourse to Mary -
to her Immaculate Conception and to Her Immaculate Heart. Both Our Lord
and Our Lady beg for many more Rosaries.
"Pray the Rosary, but pray it well, with meditation on the mysteries
and with true devotion." Our Lord said, "Tell the people not
nearly enough of them are praying the daily Rosary. They must pray the
Rosary for the conversion of Russia." Remember what the Blessed
Virgin said at Fatima: "ln the end, Russia will be converted, and
there will be an era of peace." Do not belittle the power of the
Rosary. Gather together and pray in unison, in Christian charity.
Family Rosary, the Block Rosary, especially the Rosary in Church before
the Blessed Sacrament. The Saintly Pope Pius XII said that "Next
to Mass, the Fatima Devotions are the most important."
- In Our Lord's revelations to Berthe Petit, He particularly asked
to Our Blessed Mother under the title of Sorrowful and Immaculate
- If you can, attend more than one Mass, have said or offer your
in honor of the Holy Spirit, The Holy Angels, and The Immaculate
- We are urged to give much attention to the Holy Eucharist, to
daily or frequent Holy Communion with great devotion and thanksgiving.
We should keep our tongues pure and clean to receive Our Lord in a way
most pleasing to Him (not stained by gossip or any malice.) Saint
of Avila said, "that we should be most careful of our tongue since
it is the most privileged member of our body, the table on which we
the True Body and Blood of Our Crucified Lord. Every effort should
made to receive Daily Communion because every Communion received in
the state of grace not only strengthens you, but also strengthens the
Body of Christ. Therefore, be generous in this effort, as we can easily
understand that the neglect of Communion has the opposite effect.
to Become a Tertiary
- It is best to become atertiary and thus gain the greatest
benefits. The benefits of a tertiary are far above those of any
of confraternity, because the tertiary or oblate actually belongs to
established religious order of the Church. A number of orders offer
privilege; Franciscan, Dominican, Benedictine, Carmelite, Trinitarian,
and others. Anyone can become a tertiary, male or female, married or
A tertiary lives in the world, but endeavors to live a more holy life.
IX. Will to
- Let no one foolishly say that they are too bad or too ordinary to
a Saint, for this would be denying God's merciful plan. Holy Scripture
tells us: "This is the will of God: Your sanctification."
It is up to each of us, His creatures whom He created out of the love
His Heart, to seek to obey Him. Remember those beautiful words in Holy
Scripture: "What does God ask of you, but to walk in His way and
do His Holy Will."
X. Have Your
Blessed and Consecrated to the Two Hearts
- Have Your Home Blessed and Consecrated to the Holy Hearts of
and Mary. And always keep on hand: Holy Water, Blessed Wax Candles,
Palm, Blessed Crucifix, Images of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Recommended
Prayers and Devotions
Gain Indulgences from Sacramentals
- Holy Mother Church gives us a choice of many devotions and a
treasury of indulgences. She tells us that we should value indulgences
highly and we should gain as many as possible for ourselves and
- After Holy Mass, Holy Communion, the Sacraments, and the
there is the Rosary, of which we have already spoken. It is good to
the Archconfraternity of the Holy Rosary, remembering Our Blessed
promise: "I have obtained from My Divine Son that all members of the
Rosary Confraternity shall have for their intercessors the entire
Court during their life and at the hour of their death." Our Lady
told St. Dominic that "One day through the Rosary and Scapular
I will save the world."
- Be enrolled in and constantly wear the Brown Scapular of Our
Mount Carmel, which is Our Lady's Livery. Every day recite the
prayers of seven times Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be, to gain the
Sabbatine Privilege (rescue from purgatory the Saturday following your
death). Our Lady made a promise to St. Simon Stock on July 16, 1261
that "Whosoever dies clothed in this (scapular) shall not suffer
- Be enrolled in and wear the Miraculous Medal of Our Lady, which
such great graces. Remember Her words when She sadly said: "Many
people do not receive graces, because they do not ask for them."
- O Mary, Conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to
- The Green Scapular continues to bestow many blessings and
conversions and returns to the Church, with the Prayer: "Immaculate
Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death."
- It is well also to wear the Saint Benedict Medal, which is the
indulgenced Medal of the Church. Learn and recite the prayers against
which are engraved on the Medal.
Devotion to St. Joseph and the Holy angels
- We should cultivate much devotion to Saint
Joseph. It is revealed that wherever the Blessed Virgin is, Saint
is always with Her, because it was given to him to take care of Her.
- We must always draw nearer to and rely upon the Holy Angels,
that they are not only our guardians but also our messengers, ready to
do our bidding. There is a chaplet in honor of the Angel, which
remarkable promises for those who recite it.
- We should give special attention to Saint Michael, the
continue to recite the
(by Pope Leo XIII) after each Mass. This holy Pope composed this
after his terrifying vision of Satan's power of destruction in these
Visit the Blessed Sacrament
- We are urged to make Many more visits to the Blessed
and make Holy Hours. If we cannot go to a Church for these things, then
we should send our Angel to attend Holy Mass for us, to visit Jesus in
the Blessed Sacrament, to attend to our prayers. We should make very
spiritual communions. Our Lord asked Sister Benigna to let not even a
of an hour pass without making a Spiritual Communion. So desirable this
Devotion to the Holy Face
- The Storm Novena is valuable, in that it brings us to
Sacrament nine times in one day. Another devotion most pleasing to Our
Lord is to His Holy Face. He not only wishes us to make reparation for
the insults to His Holy Face, but He wants us to behold Him face to
for all eternity. Saint Athanasius relates that the devils on being
what verse in the Scriptures they feared the most, replied: "That
with which the 67th Psalm commences: Let God arise and let His
be scattered, and let them that hate Him flee from before His face!"
They added that this verse always compelled them to take flight.
Devotion to the Holy Spirit
- Much more devotion should be given to the Holy Spirit. We
impressed with the importance of the Holy Ghost when we recall that Our
Lord said that He must go, in order that the Holy Spirit could come and
"The Holy Spirit will teach you all things that you need to know."
- A prayer too much forgotten is the one which Our Lady of Fatima
to be said when we offer sacrifices: "O Jesus, it is for love of
Thee, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins
against the Immaculate Heart of Mary." This is a Miraculous prayer
. . . please use it often.
- When Sister Josefa Menendez (called the "second Margaret-Mary")
asked Our Lady for a prayer to be said constantly while working, She
this: "O My Beloved, Who art also My God, make my heart a flame
of pure love for Thee!"
- Very great promises to save countless souls accompany this
which Our Lord taught to Sister M. Consolato Betrone (Capuchin Nun):
"JESUS, MARY, I LOVE YOU! SAVE SOULS!"
- The fifteen prayers of Saint Bridget of Sweden, on the Passion
our Lord, are most timely, since Our Lady has recently impressed upon
that we "must think more of the Passion of Jesus."
- Booklets, leaflets, chaplets and medals are available for any
of your choice. However, out of all these private devotions, we must
that Our Blessed Mother's Rosary is the most important, according to
requests of both Jesus and Mary.
- Also the Stations of the Cross, and the Stations of our
. . . since all of these cause us to meditate upon the Passion of Our
and the compassion of Our Lady.
- In one of Our Blessed Mother's revelations to a stigmatic nun
she said: "My daughter, the time is not far off. When men least
expect it, the course of Divine Justice will be accomplished. My Heart
is so big for poor sinners and I make use of every possible means that
they may be saved. Look at My mantle, how big it is! If I were not
over the world, to cover all with My maternal love, the tempest of fire
would already have broken upon the nations. This is the mantle of My
for all those who have repented, come back to My Immaculate Heart. See,
My right hand holds the mantle to cover and save poor sinners, while My
left hand holds back Divine Justice so that the time of mercy may still
be prolonged. To help me in this, I ask that the prayer of Maternal
be spread as a most useful means to obtain graces and salvation for
Say often, with your arms crossed:

OUR HOPES! HAVE MERCY ON US!"
