A Californian Soul – What Are You Afraid Of?

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 December 4th, 2020, this Californian soul “saw” the number 113 from the Blue Book in the three o’clock hour as they finished praying the Stations of the Cross. This message was originally given to Fr. Stefano Gobbi on December 4th, 1976 by Our Lady on a First Saturday:

 

What are you afraid of?

My beloved sons, be ever more docile and allow yourselves to be led by Me with complete confidence. In the darkness of this hour of trial for the Church, you are called by me to walk in the light. The light shines forth from my Immaculate Heart and comes to you to envelop you and illumine your path. Stand firm; never again must you doubt! Your road is safe because it has been marked out for you by your heavenly Mother. How much my Mother’s Heart is saddened by the doubt and mistrust which is taking more and more hold of the souls of so many of my Priest-sons! Why do you doubt? What are you afraid of?

Jesus redeemed you from the Evil One at the very hour of His triumph: ‘This is the hour of Satan and of the power of darkness.’

My Son Jesus gave you life forever at the very hour when He was slain on the Cross. At the moment of his death, He set you all free from death. My Church, of which I am the Mother, lives again the life of Christ and is now called to tread the same path He trod. 

Of what, then, are you afraid? Of a world that has hurled itself with violent hatred against you? Of Satan who has succeeded in making his way into the heart of the Church and of reaping his victims from among its very Pastors? Or of the error which menaces it, or the sin which darkens it more and more, or the infidelity which floods it? This, my beloved sons, is for my Church still the hour of Satan and of the power of darkness. It will be also immolated like Christ on the Cross, and be called to die for the salvation and the renewal of the world. And since this is the hour of your purification, it is above all the hour of your suffering. Could it perhaps be this that you fear? But what if the Father has called you, one by one, from all eternity for this hour? And what if your heavenly Mother has long since chosen you and prepared you for this hour?

Live then in serenity of spirit and without fear, even in the midst of the anxieties and threats of your time. And so I say again: do not be always peering into the future to see what is going to happen. [1]Proverbs 3:5: “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, on your own intelligence do not rely” Live only the present moment with trust and complete abandonment, in this Heart of mine.
