from “TO THE PRIESTS
– OUR LADY’S
The Marian Movement of Priests
(France); September 18, 1988
with the Priests and Faithful of the M.M.P.
Period of Ten Years
you are coming from every part of France to the foot of this rock upon
which I appeared as the Immaculate Conception, to hold your great cenacle
of prayer and fraternal sharing and to renew together the act of
consecration to my Immaculate Heart.
here I bless my Movement; from here I bless each one of you; from here I
bless the Church and all humanity. You
have entered into my times. On
this day, I am asking you to consecrate to me all the time that still
separates you from the end of this century of yours.
is a period of ten years.
These are ten very important years.
These are ten decisive years. I
am asking you to spend them with me because you
are entering into the final period of the second Advent, which will lead
you to the triumph of my Immaculate Heart in the glorious coming of my Son
Jesus. . . .”
(Italy); December 31, 1997
Night of the Year
Has Been Revealed to You
. . This century of yours, which is about to end, has been placed under
the sign of a strong power conceded to my Adversary.
Thus, humanity has been led astray by the error of theoretical and
practical atheism; in the place of God, idols have been built which
everyone adores: pleasure, money, amusement, power, pride and impurity. .
Satan, with the cup of lust, has succeeded in seducing all the nations of
the earth. He has replaced
love with hatred; communion with division; justice with many injustices;
peace with continuous war. In
fact this entire century has been spent under the sign of cruel and bloody
wars, which have claimed millions of innocent victims.
then the Most Holy Trinity has arranged that your century be placed under
the sign of my powerful, maternal and extraordinary presence.
Thus, at Fatima I pointed out the way along which humanity must
journey for its return to the Lord: that of conversion, prayer and
penance. And as a safe refuge,
I offered you my Immaculate Heart. . .
the love of a Mother who, during these years, has been listened to,
followed and glorified by you, I bless you all in the name of the Father,
and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”
