Little children, praised be Jesus!

Little ones, always stand firm and be steadfast! Avoid sin. Vanity, pride, worldly carnal desires and the renunciation of God are all sin, sin that surely takes you on the path to hell. Always strive to be loving. Watch the words that come from your mouth. Live what you say. At all costs, your speech must be kind and your actions must speak for your words.

There is so much power and pride in the world today; and yet, God seeks holiness for you. He desires you to be all of Him. Remember, children, even with the depth of your sin and even until your last breath, you can ask for forgiveness because God is merciful. But if you do not repent and reform your lives and return to God, your sin is like worms devouring you, like excrement so undesirable and horrific.

God created you pure and holy and desires you to be all-loving and kind and to receive all the beautiful gifts and graces that He would love to give you. All are welcome, children! All are welcome. Honesty is what is necessary, and both silence and Love.

Put away all harsh words and judgments, belittling commentaries, calumny and slander. Remember, the walk you walk is one that you walk alone. No matter who is around you now, the time will come when you will see your Creator face to face. There are so many gifts awaiting you, but sin must be removed.

I love you, and I thank you for your dedication, your commitment and your faithfulness to my most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. I take all of your petitions, and I lay them at the Foot of my Son's Cross.

Peace to you!

Reflection by Fr. John B. Wang

A very serious, forthright, alarming and distressed warning of a mother: Stop; danger!!!
Stop doing what? Stop sinning, especially with regards to sins of the flesh, vanity, pride and alienation from God.
Sins are like cancer, a poison to the soul. They are as ugly and foul as excrement. They can lead us to perdition.

Our heavenly Mother asks us to repent, ask for Godís forgiveness and open our hearts to receive
Godís beautiful gifts. She exhorts us to be kind, all-loving, honest, and pure and to avoid harsh words and judgments. She tells us to never slander nor belittle people for every one of us will have to individually
face our Creator and render an account of our behavior.
