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.
On March 17th, 2021, this Californian soul “saw” the number 475 from the Blue Book. This message was originally given to Fr. Stefano Gobbi in Vicenza, Italy on August 15th, 1992 on the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven
The Rays of My Splendor
Look at the heavenly splendor of my body, assumed into the glory of paradise, beloved children, and walk with me towards the safe haven of your liberation, which is now close at hand. You are my joy and my crown. You are the shining stars which cause my royal mantle to shine still more brilliantly. And so I invite you to live with me, this day, together with the souls of the saints in paradise, and with the blessed souls who are being purified in purgatory.
Today, as they contemplate, in the light of paradise, the glorious and glorified body of your heavenly Mother, the angels and all the angelic cohorts exult; the saints of heaven rejoice; the souls who are being purified jump for joy; and the pilgrim and suffering Church, which is journeying through the desert of the world and of history, is strengthened in its hope and consoled in the midst of its many tribulations.
Bring everywhere the balm of my motherly comfort. Spread my light in the deep darkness which surrounds you. You are the rays of my splendor. By means of you, I want these rays to be spread everywhere and to descend, as a heavenly dew, upon poor humanity — now in the possession of the Evil One — and upon my Church which is living the hour of its painful Passion. Spread the rays of faith, in these times of great apostasy; of hope, in a world pervaded by materialism and by the ever worsening search for pleasure; of love, in the midst of the egoism and hatred and of a great indifference toward the weak, the poor and the suffering; of purity, amidst such widespread foulness; of silence, in the deafening uproar of voices; of prayer, amidst general dissipation; of humility, in the midst of such great pride; and of obedience, amidst such a vast rebellion. Cause the rays of my glory to descend everywhere, O you who are the shining stars of my bright and motherly mantle!
In this way, you are forming the new Church; you are bringing together from all sides my children, called to form part of the little faithful remnant; you shorten the times of your most cruel slavery; you prepare hearts and souls to receive the Lord who is coming. On this day, when paradise is united to earth, I reaffirm you in my plan; I welcome you into the depths of my Immaculate Heart; I lead you with steadiness along the road of your liberation, in order to attain at last the new heavens and the new earth.
