The Blessed Mother shed tears of blood through her statue
from about 10:15 a.m. and also poured out much blood from her nose. While
I was suffering severe pains, I entered an ecstasy and the Blessed Mother
appeared. She looked as the Blessed Mother of Naju and poured out blood
from her nose and shed tears of blood from her eyes. She came near to me
while I was in pain and began speaking She spoke and lamented filled with
THE BLESSED MOTHER:
In this age when the whole world is in need of unity, this
nation (Korea) is being divided and unable to love one another. It is
painful enough to be divided between the South and the North. Why are you
at odds with each other distrusting, hating, being jealous, confronting,
and trying to dominate over the other? You are all brethren, one nation,
and children of one God.
Julia: What should we do?
THE BLESSED MOTHER:
Always remember the voice of the Lord crucified on the
Cross, do not get angry, and pray that you may be unified as one. Offer up
sacrifices, reparations, and prayers. I am asking you to do penance for
their sins which they committed without knowing. They will repent at the
right time. Also, ask all the priests to pray the rosary fervently for
God the Father was going to send down a severe punishment
(on this country) for the extremely painful and intense strife, but the
small sacrifices and reparations that the little souls have offered with
me have helped. However, more atonements are necessary.
Today I will gather all of you under my mantle. Since you
know my pains, I want you to spread the messages to all so that my beloved
children may receive the light from my Immaculate Heart and that my tears
and blood may not flow in vain. As I told you before, the rosary prayers
make devils surrender. Tell all the faithful to offer five more decades of
the rosary prayers. If they pray more for the unity of this country,
it will be saved from calamity.
After the Blessed Mother finished speaking, I could see
her no longer.
