My dear children, if I am here to remind you of my commandments, it is because I love you and I do not want to lose any of my children. I say to you mothers: Do you speak to your children about respect? You are living through one of the most difficult moments also because the word “respect” has been placed in oblivion. If one speaks of friendship, of love, every definition is inexact. You no longer call persons, animals, or things by their proper names. You call animals by the names of people and vice-versa. You love animals more than my most beloved children. You treat things, very often, as if they were more important than your very own life. Therefore, let us give the word “respect” its proper meaning. “To respect” means to give value to that which we must respect. My commandments, then, are to be respected in their essential value.
Let us speak, now, of the sixth among my counsels. If I say to you, “Do not commit impure acts,” it means that I desire from you the respect of that body, holy temple of God, that I have given you. Start speaking, therefore, to your children about how to treat that which I have given you. In your clothing, take greater care, remembering not to make others sin through impure desire. In the feeling that you define as love, place all your attention.
Love, first of all, comes from the heart, and if it comes from the heart, give your brethren pure love. In matrimony, for more reason, leave behind unrestrained sex in order to recuperate that most pure feeling that leads to true joy and completeness.
Dear children, leave behind material things and pay more attention to satisfying your spirit. I bless you in purity and chastity.
