My dear children, my blessing be upon you and your families.
Today, the beginning of Lent, I want to help you distinguish between simple prayers and offerings.
You can address prayers of request, of forgiveness, and of intercession to me all the time, and I hear them. During this period, in preparation for my resurrection, you can offer me prayers of intercession, in particular for eternal salvation.
Even I, in that sorrowful moment, asked my Father to take away from Me that terrible trial. Therefore, I understand you when you find yourselves before the cross. You know that you must confront it, but courage is often lacking.
My children, this Lenten period will show you the cross while assuring you of my help. Be strong; after the moment of confusion and of rejection, accept the trial with the certainty that I am with you precisely in order to support the weight together with you.
May this period, therefore, be favorable for you. Offer me your sufferings, your uncertainties, your torments, and I, from Gethsemane, will help you to welcome what my Father offers you for the remission of your sins and others’.
Your earth is suffering your very own sufferings. Pray that your Father take away, in his goodness, the venom that is destroying it. Pray and offer sacrifices in this fortunate time; you will be freed from all the sufferings on the physical and spiritual level.
I will console you. Bear your cross with love. The Easter that you are preparing will bring you eternal salvation. Be good imitators of your Christ if you want to have the eternal prize.
I, your Jesus, will be near you in the temptations that will not be lacking. I love you.
Jesus, the Crucified Christ
