The 1-Year Anniversary of the Death of Pope John Paul II

Little children, praised be Jesus!

Little ones, you are always safe when you focus on God. My most beloved Son suffered and was crucified so that you could be free and have Life. It was all for the glory of God, so that not one child should be lost. This was also the great hope and proclamation of my beloved son, known to you as your beloved Pope John Paul II "the Great"; and he desired all humanity to live life fully, in peace, focusing on your walk with Jesus. My beloved Pope invited all of the youth to grow and to love and to live life fully, so that not one child should be lost.

This was the way that God the Father created the world. However, the angels, especially one now known as "satan", who was a great angel of light, through pride recruited other angels to try to overcome God's Kingdom. So they were thrown out as the fallen angels. So too today, God once again through purgation will weed out and throw out the wicked people who desire to turn my children away from God. They will also become the fallen, like the fallen angels from Heaven.

So take courage, and know that this must happen because you are loved so much; and the wickedness and evil of the world must meet the Truth so that all the precious souls can be saved. Not one precious soul that desires God should ever be deceived or turned away from the Truth.

Focus, children, focus on your Savior! Join me as we walk now with Him through His Passion and Death, only to be renewed and to have Life fully.

Peace to you. I love you, and I join my Son and your Pope in this most omnipotent blessing on all the children in the world.

(Our Lady appeared during the Rosary being said simultaneously with the memorial Rosary and Apostolic blessing by Pope Benedict XVI at St. Peter's Basilica in Rome today.)

Reflection by Fr. John B. Wang

In this extremely important message, our Heavenly Mother calls our attention to the time when God purified the angelic world, for He will very soon purify our own human world. It seems the process our Lord chooses to use will include the Illumination of Conscience (also known as the Mini-Judgment, the Warning, etc.), by which each one of us will be shown the status of our souls in Godís Light of Truth. Consequently, there will be a general cry of contrition and repentance, followed by Divine Forgiveness. Humanity will be renewed and sanctified! Those who refuse to seek Godís abundant Mercy and choose instead to persist in their evil and wickedness will be eliminated, just as the rebellious angels refused the Truth and then became the fallen angels. This will be a painful event given to us from Godís Supreme Love. The words of our Blessed Mother in this message must surely impel us to renew our effort to pray and do penance for the sake of souls that they may respond to God when this critical moment comes.
