P43: Mary: “ . . . Pay attention to what I say . . . You know my heart is immensely in pain. Satan is sweeping souls away in a terrifying way. Why do you not all try your best to stop him and do it as soon as possible? I need your help. My heart is burning with sorrow because I see how many souls are being damned. Many are dragged away in spite of their good will. With a sarcastic smile, the Evil one extends his arms, and with terrible malice, he drags away those for whom my Divine Son suffered unspeakable torments and death. Please, help!”

P24: Tuesday – Offer this Day for the Family
P24: Jesus: “My daughter, I’m now going to specify how each day of the week should be allocated. . . .
P42: Then the sweet Redeemer asked me to pray with Him the prayer that expresses His deepest desires:
p.7: Jesus: “Look at My disfigured Face and My tortured sacred Body. Didn’t I suffer to save souls? Believe in Me and adore Me.”
P83: This is a day of fast I am offering for the souls in purgatory, especially the souls of priests. The Lord Jesus said that He could not resist the pleas of the Blessed Virgin. He flooded my mind with the following words:
p41: Jesus: “I want you to increase your fasts if you accept. Do not give yourself to any pleasure. Let your breakfast and your afternoon meal be bread and water. You can have other foods only at your principal meal, but make them tasteless. Do not eat to please your taste but only to nourish your body. Anyway, the body will demand what it needs.”
p110: Mary: “If you attend Holy Mass while under no obligation to do so and you are in a state of grace before God, during that time I will pour out the Flame of Love of my heart and blind Satan.
p23: Jesus: “Do you know that I was awaiting you with a sad heart? You see how lonely I am! You are the only one here. If you did not come, I would be an orphan. You were an orphan, My little one, and you know how bitter it is.”
p10 – at a celebration of Our Lady of Lourdes with many in attendance:
p12: My beloved Jesus, I want to repent of my sins and to love You more than any repentant sinner. My beloved Jesus, in the future, I ask that not one day goes by without my love causing me tears of repentance. Humble me, Lord Jesus, every moment of my life, so I always see myself as poor and sinful.
p7: Jesus: “Look at my disfigured Face and My tortured Sacred Body. Didn’t I suffer to save souls? Believe in Me and adore Me.”
p15: Jesus: “. . . Accept faithfully the sacrifices that I ask of you for My Cause. Many ask repeatedly to share in My works, but when they must accept a sacrifice from My own hands, they are afraid of Me.
p9: Following a brief moment of adoration, I said to the Lord: “O Jesus, You have me here. I have separated myself completely from the world, just as You wanted, so that absolutely nothing can come between us. Do I please You? O my God, how miserable I am! How much these sacrifices have cost me! Do You know how humiliating it is to live this way?” Then I heard the Lord’s voice in me.
p22: Jesus: “When you make the cross, think of the three Divine Persons. . . . Make the sign of the cross five times, while thinking of my Five Wounds. Always look at my eyes bathed in blood from so many blows that I received even from you.”
p39: Mary: “On the feast of Candlemas, my beloved sons will introduce the Flame of Love of my heart in procession, so that, in such fashion, it becomes a living fire in the hearts, in the souls. Everything must be prepared in such a way that it spreads like wildfire.”
p16: Jesus: “My daughter, renounce yourself. I keep insisting on this because you can only share in My work of Redemption if you live united with Me at every moment. There must be no interruption...
p8: Jesus: “Renounce yourself.”
p123: Jesus: “Say and constantly repeat, ‘My adored Jesus.’ I have told you before how pleasant it is to Me, and even if you say nothing else for a whole hour, repeat it with repentance for your sins. This obtains many graces, forgiveness for sins, and provides peace for souls.”
