I have come to comfort you. My dearly beloved children, never as now have you all been in the greatest discouragement. Be serene, because whoever is near to us is preserved from every calamity [see comment below]. I love you and even in pain I want to calm your hearts. Jesus and I are closer to you than ever and we want you to follow us and the Word of the Father who heals every wound. These are the final throes of Satan and he is tormenting you as he is able. I repeat—follow and respect the laws of God if you want to live in peace of heart. My children, your earth has been invaded by evil spirits: if you do not pray and entrust yourselves totally to us, you will not succeed in emerging from this terrible trial. At this moment, if you demonstrated to yourselves, first of all, that God is Love, you would live this darkness with more light in your hearts. God is love—never forget him, and he will not leave his children in the hands of Satan. I repeat to you, do not fear, since heaven and earth will pass but the Word and love of God will never pass away. Pray, open your hearts, ask of your Father with the certainty of being heard. I am with you, I love you and will not abandon even the most disobedient child. Offer up your sufferings for your brothers and sisters who do not believe, and who for this very reason will die of fear and heartbreak. Easter is approaching and teaches you that Jesus has conquered death. You will be conquerors if you entrust yourselves to Him completely. Courage, my children.
