A Sacerdotal Pentecost

PentecosteThe Fire of My Heart is the Living Flame of Love, the Holy Spirit. Yield to that Fire, and ask Me to enkindle it in you and in the souls of all My priests. The Flame of purifying and sanctifying Love blazes from My Body in the Most Holy Eucharist.  Those who adore Me in My Sacrament of Love will be the first to experience the Sacerdotal Pentecost by which I intend to renew the priesthood of My Church. The sons of My Mother’s Immaculate Heart will be prepared by her for this Work of Mine. If you desire to receive the Fire of My purifying and sanctifying Love, live in the presence of My Immaculate Mother as did My beloved disciple and friend, Saint John.

She who was present in the cenacle at the Pentecost by which I sent My Church into the world is also at the heart of this Pentecost of Holiness by which I will renew My priests and cause the priesthood once again to shine in My Church.

I bless those whom you present to Me, lifting them into the light of My Face.  I will give to each one according to his need, but also according to his readiness to receive My gifts. Those who are poor in spirit are those most ready to receive what I would give them. Those who are close to My Most Pure Mother and invoke her as Mediatrix of All Graces will not be disappointed in their hopes.

How it pleases Me to bestow graces and blessings in abundance through the pure hands of My Holy Mother.  She is the Treasurer and Dispensatrix of all the riches that are laid up for souls within My Sacred Heart.  Souls that appeal to her will not go away empty.  Souls that refuse to acknowledge her unique place in My Father’s great plan of mercy for the world will not receive in the same measure as those souls who look to My Mother and call upon her name with confidence.  Insist on this when you are called to preach or teach.

The riches of My Kingdom are for all whom I have redeemed with My own Blood, but it pleases Me to bestow them through My Mother, the Queen and Mediatrix who stood, offering Me and offering herself with Me, at the foot of My Cross.  Today she reigns with Me in paradise.

All that I won for souls from My Father on the altar of the Cross, with My Mother at My side, I will now pour out on souls through her Heart and through her hands. This too is the secret of a fruitful priesthood.  In every priestly act and in all of life, place your hands in the hands of My Mother and your heart in her Heart.
