Around 1997, a man and a woman in California, who were living together in a life of sin, had a profound conversion through Divine Mercy. The wife had been prompted interiorly to start a rosary group after experiencing her first Divine Mercy novena. Seven months later, a statue of Our Lady of the Immaculate Heart in their home began to weep oil profusely (later, other sacred statues and images began oozing fragrant oil while a crucifix and statue of St. Pio bled. One of those images is now hanging in the Marian Center located at the Divine Mercy Shrine in Massachusetts. Because these images began to attract many people to their home in the beginning, their spiritual director agreed that they remain anonymous). This miracle led them to repent of their living situation and enter a sacramental marriage.
About six years later, the man began audibly hearing the voice of Jesus (what are called “locutions”). He had next to no catechesis or understanding of the Catholic Faith, so the voice of Jesus both alarmed and entranced him. Even though some of the Lord’s words were of warning, he described Jesus’ voice as always beautiful and gentle. He also received a visitation from St. Pio and locutions from St. Thérèse de Lisieux, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Michael the Archangel and dozens of locutions from Our Lady while in front of the Blessed Sacrament. After conveying two years of messages and secrets (known only to this man and to be announced at a future time known only to the Lord) the locutions stopped. Jesus told the man, “I will cease speaking to you now, but My Mother will continue to lead you.” The couple felt called to start a cenacle of the Marian Movement of Priests where they would meditate on the messages of Our Lady to Fr. Stefano Gobbi . It was two years into these cenacles that the words of Jesus came true: Our Lady began to lead him, but in the most remarkable way. During the cenacles, and on other occasions, this man would see “in the air” in front of him the numbers of messages from the so-called “Blue Book,” the collection of the revelations Our Lady gave to Fr. Stefano Gobbi , “To the Priests Our Lady’s Beloved Sons.” Both the husband and wife suffer greatly for their ministry, but continually offer it to the Lord for the salvation of souls. It is noteworthy that this man does not read the Blue Book to this day (as his education is very limited and he has a reading disability). Over the years, these numbers that materialized would confirm on countless occasions the spontaneous conversations in their cenacles, and now today, the events taking place around the world. Fr. Gobbi’s messages did not fail but are now finding their fulfillment in real-time.
Faithful, Prompt and Obedient
I am your Queen. I am calling you, my beloved sons, to become, each and all, faithful, prompt and obedient subjects. You are being faithful when you always do what I ask of you, when you listen to my voice, and when you let yourselves be led by me with docility. Your faithfulness should increase each day, by your perfect fidelity to the duties of your particular state. In this you should be a good example. to all.
Whoever is faithful to Me, makes of his life a mirror in which I can reflect my image, and he spreads about him the perfume of all my virtues. Whoever is faithful, moves ahead with confidence and abandonment along the road which I have pointed out, without looking to any creature, without waiting for human approval, without seeking support or encouragement, but entering more and more into the depths of my Immaculate Heart, he allows himself to be led by me along the way of the Cross until he reaches the summit of Calvary. The degree of your fidelity, which I desire to bring to the point of heroism, will be able to be measured by how you know how to suffer, to be silent and to offer things up. You are being prompt when you carry out my orders readily and without hesitation.
During these years, I have pointed out to you the road you must take; why do you not follow it with confidence and trust? Why do some of you come to a halt, still uncertain and insecure? My Adversary succeeds in bringing you to a halt with doubts, and paralyses you with mistrust. I have already shown you my battle-plan, as I have formed you and led you by the hand to prepare you for the great battle which awaits you.
You are being prompt when you make use of the weapons which I have given you: prayer, your priestly prayer, the frequent recitation of the Holy Rosary, suffering and your priestly immolation. You must now be prompt to answer to the orders of your Queen, because you are about to enter into a most painful and decisive period.
Very soon all could come to pass. You will be called to live through serious moments, following him whom God has placed at the head of my cohort, the Vicar of my Son Jesus who, with strength and courage, is advancing toward his perfect immolation for which I have long been preparing him., ready to give his very life for Me and for you.
You are being obedient when you give to all a witness of perfect docility to the norms which the Church prescribes for Priests. This is your livery, and I want you all to be clothed in it to make you invulnerable in combat: your silent, humble and perfect obedience. Obedient to the Pope, to the Bishops united with him and to the norms which regulate your priestly life.
I want you to be disciplined in everything, even in the smallest things. Say always and with promptness your ‘yes’ to the Father who calls you to follow his Son Jesus who, for your sake, made himself a perfect example of obedience even to death on a cross.
If all are faithful, prompt and obedient, I will be able to truly reign in each one of you. And through you I will be able to reign also in the whole world, preparing the way on which Christ the King is about to come to restore in your midst his glorious Reign of love.
