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 April 4th, 2020, he received the number 200 from the Blue Book:
The Time of Battle
This is my great battle! What you are seeing and what you are living through forms part of my plan, hidden in the secret of my Immaculate Heart. The Most Holy Trinity has entrusted to Me the task of leading its army in the terrible struggle against Satan who, as ever, is the most astute and ruthless enemy of God. God has entrusted the carrying out of his victorious plan to Me, the littlest slave of the Lord, because the spirit of pride and rebellion may still be conquered by the humility and obedience of your heavenly Mother.
My Adversary has dared to attack the Most Holy Trinity, obscuring its great Work of love and of glory. He has obscured the Work of the Father, by seducing other creatures to rebellion against God, by means of the spread of atheism to a degree that mankind has never before known. To render fruitless the redemptive Work of the Son, he has attempted to bedim his Church with error, which has entered into her interior, and with infidelity which has spread like a terrible cancer. This has reached the point of confrontation with the Pope, whom Jesus set in the Church as the centre of Unity and as the guardian of Truth.
He has obscured the Work of the Holy Spirit, succeeding in extinguishing the light of divine life in many souls, through sin. It is readily committed and even justified by many; and by some, it is no longer even confessed.
But the ‘Woman clothed in the sun’ who has begun her great battle, continues to wage it each day through you, my faithful little cohort. By means of you, I want to restore to its splendour the Work of creation, of redemption and of sanctification, in such a way that the Most Holy Trinity will receive the greatest degree of glory.
Do not become disturbed by the darkness which has spread about, because this is part of the plan of my Adversary; it is on the other hand part of my own victorious plan, namely, that of dispelling the darkness so that the Light may everywhere return. And the Light will shine resplendently throughout creation when it will once again sing the love and glory of God, following on the defeat of every form of atheism and of proud rebellion. The Light of truth, of fidelity and of unity will once again shine fully in the Church. My Son Jesus will manifest himself fully in such a way that the Church will become Light for all the nations of the earth. I will make the Light of Grace shine in souls. The Holy Spirit will communicate himself to them in superabundance, in order to lead them to the perfection of love. —Our Lady to Fr. Stefano Gobbi
