Our Lord Jesus to Gisella Cardia on January 1st, 2022:
- “you” plural from here to the end of the message.
- May be a reference to feast days, such as Christmas or Easter, when many of the faithful spend these hours in dissipation rather than recollection in the true meaning of the solemnity.
- “Ark of the Covenant” has been a title of Our Lady since the early centuries of the Church. See this homily of Benedict XVI on August 15, 2011: vatican.va Also, from the Catechism of the Catholic Church: ‘Mary is full of grace because the Lord is with her. The grace with which she is filled is the presence of Him who is the source of all grace. “Rejoice . . . O Daughter of Jerusalem . . . the Lord your God is in your midst.” Mary, in whom the Lord himself has just made His dwelling, is the daughter of Zion in person, the ark of the covenant, the place where the glory of the Lord dwells. She is “the dwelling of God . . . with men.” Full of grace, Mary is wholly given over to Him who has come to dwell in her and whom she is about to give to the world.’ (n. 2676). Translator’s notes
