Dear children, thank you for being here in prayer and for having responded to my call in your hearts. Children, look at the world: it has reached [the point of] destruction. I have asked and continue to ask you to pray the Holy Rosary and to entrust yourselves to God, your only salvation. You are traveling along a road full of dangers and yet you do not believe; open your hearts, be united and be one sole family so that you can help one another. Soon you will see so many things; you will also be witnesses of the end of this battle and victors together with Jesus. Do not fear. How many believe that all this will pass quickly: you have let yourselves be shaped by what the powerful, the world elite are saying, without understanding what has been happening. Be careful: what they tell you will not always be for your good. Pray for Italy and for the world, which is in great danger. The Vatican will be greatly shaken; many prelates will feel the darkness in their hearts. I am relying on your prayers, [my] favored sons*, so that what will come might be mitigated. Now I leave you with my motherly blessing in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
[*Italian figli prediletti – when used in locutions, this wording normally indicates priests, but here it could also mean “my favored children”, denoting the faithful in a broader sense. Translator’s note.]
