Peace after the tempest

An hour of darkness is coming upon My Church. . . . Keep watch before My Eucharistic Face, lest the spark of love and of knowledge be altogether snuffed out.

Consecrate yourself to My Mother, and lift your eyes to her all–pure countenance. She is the star whom I have set in the darkness of the firmament lest those who belong to Me lose hope and perish in the tempest that threatens the very survival of all that I have done and of the works of My saints.

Those who flee to my immaculate Mother and cling to her mantle of protection will emerge from the sorrows of this time and, after the raging tempest, will rejoice in a peace that the world cannot give.

Amen, amen I say to you, that you shall lament and weep, but the world shall rejoice; and you shall be made sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy. (John 16:20)

A facile compromise with the world has introduced corruption into the very places in My Church where I looked for loyalty to Me, for faithfulness, and for truth. Instead of loyalty, I find shameful alliances with the world and the powers that would rule over it. Instead of faithfulness, I find a falling away in little things that quickly will lead to a falling away in great things. Instead of truth, I find deceptive language and the distortions of what I have given to My Church in all clarity.

Your part is to pray close to My wounded Heart, and to abide in the radiance of My Eucharistic Face . . . . Be sons of the Host for the Host and the seed of a new generation of adorers in spirit and in truth. Only remain with Me. Keep watch before My Face and listen to all that My Heart will say to you. I am here for you. Be here for Me, and so console My Heart, which so many of My own have forsaken.
