My dear little children, praised be Jesus!
Little ones, I love you. Know that it is not so much the gift that God gives you that is the measure of your spirituality and greatness, but rather it is what you do with the gift God gives you that is the measure of your spiritual greatness.
You see, God loves you! He does not need seers, prophets and teachers. God is God, and all belongs to Him! God desires you, as His creatures of Light, to give to Him all of your good works from the gifts He gives you, all for His greater glory and honor and also for yours.
Please, children! You cannot be a true apostle if you despise anyone. I know that there are many people who might despise you, but you cannot return feelings of hatred to them. All of you must be the Light of Jesus!
Whether parent or child, whether teacher, priest or deacon, whether member of any religious order or of any religion, whether rich or poor, you cannot despise anyone or take joyful action in their sorrow.
Cry when they cry, and be joyful when they are joyful! If they despise you, you must not despise them. Their fate awaits them when they meet their Creator face to face.
To be a true follower of my Son, only Love must exist! Regardless of your weaknesses, repent, return to God, and love. For the measure you love will be given back to you.
I am here with you because God has allowed me to be here with you. Live for Him, and then you will understand the true joy and bliss of living a life, whole and pure, with true happiness, freedom and peace.
Thank you, little children, for responding to my call. Thank you.
Reflection by Fr. John B. Wang
More precious gems from Heaven! The advice our Mother gives clearly resonates with her Sonís words from the Bible: Love your enemies and turn the other cheek. Never return evil for evil but requite evil with good. Be compassionate as your Heavenly Father is compassionate. Suffer with those who suffer and rejoice with those who rejoice. NEVER delight in anotherís misfortune, for you will be measured with whatever measure you measure.
Love! Repent and return to God. Make good use of the gifts God has given you. Live a whole and pure life. You will then experience true freedom, joy, peace and happiness.
