Little children, praised be Jesus!
Little ones, thank you for your prayers. Thank you for coming and praying. I am sorry for all those who inflict upon you tremendous pain and sorrow. God knows your hearts; and when you take your pain and sorrow and present them to my Son with love, all turns around into a different scenario. Good comes out of everything. Thank you for having the courage to endure all levels of persecution and indifference and all afflictions for the great glory of God.
My Son will bless you abundantly. He in His goodness will give to you every measure for all of your efforts. Freedom comes from the act of kindness, one act at a time, which frees the soul.
You are all so special; and many of your beloved ones and other peoples around the world are special, even though they are not here. I am with them. My Son is with them; and the Most Omnipotent Blessing of the Holy Trinity is upon them.
Freedom comes at a cost. The cost is immeasurable, for you cannot measure Love. You give until death for the sake of Truth. In all simplicity, you have that example of Truth by which you live. Pray with all your hearts and live the Gospel message. Freedom is not an act (long pause); freedom is a Way within your soul that spreads.
How I love you, and I take all your petitions to my most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. The act of redemption, in which my Son sacrificed for you, leads the Way of Truth with the epitome of Love and freedom.
Thank you for responding to my call. Know that all of your loved ones who have given their lives for you are now free in the Kingdom of Heaven. Blessings, blessings for being the lead, finding the Truth. Peace.
Reflection by Fr. John B. Wang
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said: "Happy are you when people abuse you and persecute you and speak all kinds of calumny against you on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven; this is how they persecuted the prophets before you." (Mt. 5, 12) In this message, our Blessed Mother reiterates the same teaching. She says that when people beset you with all levels of persecution, causing you affliction, sorrow and pain, endure with courage and strength. Maintain your undisturbed joy and deep-seated peace. React with kindness and love and pray for your persecutors. God always draws good from evil. Defend the Truth at any cost, with freedom and unconcerned detachment. Know that bliss in the Kingdom of Heaven will be your remuneration
