The most important act you will perform each day is to pray, if possible attend and pray the Mass.
For in the Mass you receive the Giver of all gifts Himself, the times are urgent and your enemy prowls waiting for an opportune moment of weakness to defeat your resolve, I am your recourse.
Chaos is everywhere and the Truth is being violated daily in the political realm and in society as the bigotry and hatred run rampant against the most vulnerable of My people.
In prayer I will instruct and strengthen your convictions, you are to obey as I speak to your heart, your priorities for your life must be defined through the Words of the Gospels.
Throughout the world, My Mother has appeared and has given many messages to pray, pray, pray.
She is telling Her children to convert by prayer and fasting, it is time to get serious in your resolve, no longer must you put off discovering what is clouding our relationship.
Have you become complacent and tired of hearing this mandate to pray, I am not pleased with lukewarm prayers that do not lead to either a desire to love in a greater capacity Me or your neighbour.
Yes, I will call you to penance, you need not fear for the results will be freeing and peace will ensue.
When you pray sincerely, your heart will soften and I will unite My Heart with yours, I am compassionate and forgiving, all things are possible through Me, believe and be healed.
Again I say there is an urgency in these times, and it is the action of My faithful that I depend on to change the world, the grace offered by the Spirit is crucial for today.
You are not to remain idle, pray always and not only in times of trouble, but even in such times you will be made ready with every conviction needed.
One at a time let go of those things that occupy your time, those unproductive activities that do not lead to God, they do not advance you for eternity and waste your valuable time.
Follow in My Footsteps, I often went to pray to My Father, alone on the mountain, where I could be strengthened and empowered for My Mission on earth, if I needed to pray, how much more do you.
Do not procrastinate, for this would be irresponsible and foolish, you are the example for your children and those for whom you are responsible, even the stranger who passes by, for these I will hold you accountable.
If you would trust and not cease in prayer, you will taste and see My Goodness, yet I will share with you that My Heart breaks that so few seek a deep relationship with Me, most ignore and forget My presence.

Your hearts were made for Me, I created you with a love that was as big as the universe, who could have imagined that you could be loved from before creation, by it’s Creator, destined to enjoy the Paradise I had prepared for My faithful ones.
Every heart is longing for love, that is to love and to be loved, yet only the one who discovers that the answer to all of loves longing is to love God and to be loved by Him.
Deep in your heart is a hunger, and many try to fill it with anything else that they can feel and touch, and in frustration and in their dissatisfaction, they surrender to the love that has pursued them, the love of God.
You are My child, you were created for greatness, I will not rest until this is achieved in you, and in your sleepless nights you will hear Me call, respond in the silence of the night.
I see a restlessness within you that seeks meaning and purpose for your life, indeed I do have a mission for each one, and you must fulfill it, then you will find your satisfaction but not apart from Me.
I entreat you to begin with what you do know and trust, this is all for now that I am asking of you, I will thus be able to draw you further into the unknown, your new identity, a life exciting and joyful awaits you.
You have not yet ventured to imagine all that I want to do in your life, in My Wisdom I formed each of you uniquely in your talents and desires, thank Me when things do not go your way, I can therefore redirect you in the way you should go.
In your weakness you are aware of your unfaithfulness and disobedience, you are not able to be relied upon to cling to Me, so be assured that without fail, I am hanging on to you and will never let you go.
I wanted to identify with humanity, that you would not be afraid to have a relationship with your God, and that you would be able to see authentic love in action, therefore in obedience I came to earth.
The darkness of sin has blinded the world, and so to those who have not seen and yet have believed, I give much grace, avail yourselves of all that I supply for your spiritual growth while there is still time.
Soon what you have depended upon will be no more, what you deemed familiar and safe may no longer be at your disposal, I am your only solid ground, your rock upon which you are to find your security.

You are all pilgrims finding your way home, a journey treacherous at times and among those who do not always share your values.
I am here with you though you do not see Me, you need not fear, for there is no place where I am not, especially am I in you, seeing and hearing all that concerns you.
As any mother knows the sound of her own child, so much more do I know you and you know the sound of My Voice, which you hear in your heart, but not exclusively.
Sometimes you will hear Me through others, or it may be My written Word that inspires you to act, possibly a silent meditation or as you view nature, which is My Creation, these will bring praise from your lips.
You may have needs that only God can solve, and I will answer, I use your brothers and sisters in prayer or the intercession of a special Saint perhaps, but I delight always in obedient and persistent Faith that will not give up in asking.
Trials and sufferings bring you to Me, these are My best instruments for purification and in making you more resilient, for as life will sometimes bring disappointments regarding trusted individuals and hoped for situations that just did not pan out as you had planned, I am here to strengthen you.
But as each day advances, you come closer to your reward, the home I prepared for you, as with anticipation you look forward to a new life with Me and all who have gone on before you.
Think of Me today and spend a little time being thankful and in gratitude for the Salvation I’ve gained for you, then as your spirit is lifted, you will not so easily get caught up in self-indulgent ambitions.
I am wanting to redirect your path to the Divine Will from which you may have gotten lost, even if ever so slightly, for unfortunately it is so satisfying to do your own will, through the Eucharist you will be empowered to stay on the right track.
Your journey home, a journey of Faith, need not be one of sadness and gloom, for My Joy longs to be spread everywhere.
The fruits of My Spirit are given to you, especially love, the fruits of the Spirit are to be scattered like seed to all that you meet, then all will know that you are Mine.

On the third day, I arose from the dead, and came to My frightened and disillusioned Apostles, who for fear of the Jews had hidden and locked themselves behind closed doors.
My first Words to them were, Peace be with you, I wanted them to enter the resurrected life with Me and that they not live a life cowering in fear, I wanted them to know I had forgiven them.
I gave them the gift of My Peace, in the power of the Holy Spirit, they would receive on Pentecost, a Peace that would surpass all understanding.
And you My poor frightened creature, you may be timid and shy, lacking in self-confidence and wanting to be left alone, unnoticed.
To be left alone according to what is comfortable to you, the great effort that you would need to make to overcome excessive fears, is not something that you would want to do.
Can you not see that this is not living in My Spirit, you are not living the resurrected life that I have given you, the life that I suffered and died to give you, so that you might live a life triumphant.
When you were young and before your conversion, you did not yet understand what I wanted to teach you, to overcome shyness, timidity and nervousness, it would be a work we would accomplish together.
Living in the Spirit is doing what God asks of you, My Spirit being very gentle, will coax and entice you into situations, that will cause your growth without conflict to your spirit, for He comforts you.
I ask you to give Me your will, this is giving Me the OK to proceed in the resurrected life I already have prepared for you, you are My child and I want nothing less than My best for you.
You will not always desire to speak or act as directed by the Spirit, wanting to regress back to what you know, that is what is your familiar comfort zone.
The life I have planned for you will be sweet and peaceful, for you will have received forgiveness from Me and thus will be able to forgive yourself, a profound inner peace pervades.
Be patient with yourself, for slowly you begin to see with the eyes of faith, that I am not far off as you had previously believed, I am in you to live the joy and ability to surrender all as required.
I know full well that you are desiring to please Me, take your focus off yourself and enjoy the wealth of love that is being lavished upon you, it is My pleasure to dote on you even now and forever.
