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 2nd, 2021, this Californian soul “saw” the number 578 from the Blue Book. This message was originally given to Fr. Stefano Gobbi in Bratislava, Slovakia on September 8th, 1996 on the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is unusual for this Californian soul to receive so many messages so frequently, as has been the case recently. Perhaps it is because Our Lady herself has indicated through another seer that her apparitions are soon to end (see Soon, God’s Justice…).
With the Strength of the Little Ones
Gather together, like fragrant flowers of love and purity, about the cradle in which I am placed at the moment of my birth. Because I am little, I am pleasing to the Lord. Because I am little, I have been destined by my God to guide the cohort of his children against the terrible army of Satan, of the rebellious spirits and of their powerful followers. With my little children, I will in the end achieve my greatest victory.
With the strength of the little ones, I will conquer the great power of Satan, who has set up his reign in the world and has seduced, with the cup of pleasure and lust, all the nations of the earth. For this reason, with my Marian Movement of Priests, I am gathering together from everywhere my little children, and with joy I see that they are responding to me with generosity and in ever increasing numbers.
With the strength of the little ones, I will bring back to God this poor humanity, deceived and seduced by false ideologies, and particularly ensnared by the great error of atheism. With it, Lucifer, the ancient serpent, Satan, has wanted to renew before God his proud challenge, bringing humanity to repeat his gesture of rebellion against the Lord: non serviam: I will not serve Him. And so I gather in the garden of my Immaculate Heart the great cohort of my little children and I offer them to the perfect fulfillment of the Will of the Heavenly Father. Thus, in them and by means of them, I repeat my gesture of humble and perfect availability to his Will, repeating again my Fiat: let your holy and divine Will be done.
With the strength of the little ones, I will heal this humanity, ill and wounded by sin, by pride, by violence and by impurity. For this, I lead with gentle firmness all my little children along the road of holiness, of humility, of love and of purity. And then this world will go back to being the garden, in which the Lord can once again be loved, enjoyed, served and perfectly glorified. Thus will be achieved the great victory foretold and sung in the Sacred Scriptures: ‘Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings, You have asserted your power against your adversaries, to silence the enemy and the rebel’ (Ps 8:3).
I bless this little country which, in these days, has given such joy and comfort to my Immaculate Heart. You have seen, my little son, with what enthusiasm the priests and faithful have responded to my invitation to take part in the cenacles: how many graces have come down upon so many children in this country, where the heavenly Mother has received one of the greatest responses to her invitation to belong to the Marian Movement of Priests, in order to form part of the victorious cohort of my little children.
The mini-judgment is a reality. People no longer realize that they offend Me.
Out of My infinite Mercy I will provide a mini-judgment.
It will be painful, very painful, but short.
You will see your sins, you will see how much you offend Me every day.
I know that you think this sounds like a very good thing,
but unfortunately, even this won’t bring the whole world into My love.
Some people will turn even further away from Me,
they will be proud and stubborn….
Those who repent will be given an unquenchable thirst for this light…
All those who love Me will join to help form the heel that crushes Satan.
—Jesus to Matthew Kelly, 1993; from The Miracle of the Illumination of Conscience
by Dr. Thomas W. Petrisko, p.96-97
Then the legion of little souls, victims of merciful Love,
will become as numerous ‘as the stars of heaven and the sands of the seashore’.
It will be terrible to Satan; it will help the Blessed Virgin to crush his proud head completely.
—St. Thérése of Lisieux, The Legion of Mary Handbook, p. 256-257
She alone is the Triumphant One in the space of the universe.
She is the Standard-Bearer, and she gathers together the whole army of Creation
in order to bring them to God, with speaking voice and with full Knowledge,
the Glory, the Honor, and the Tribute of everything and everyone.
-Jesus to Luisa Piccarreta, July 20th, 1934, Vol. 33
