»I also want to say a word to you, My son Alexander, so that My desires may be
realized in the world.
You must join with the father confessor of this “little plant” (Mother Eugenia) of My
Son Jesus, in promoting this work, that is, the special devotion I expect from men. To
you, My sons, I entrust this work and its future, which is so important.
Talk, persist, make My words known, so that I may be known, loved and
honoured by all My creatures. If you do this, you will have done what I expect of you,
that is, My will, and you will have fulfilled the wishes that I have so long cherished in
For everything that you do for My glory, I will do twice as much for your salvation
and sanctification. In the end, in heaven, and only in heaven, you will see the great
reward that I will give you in a very special way, together with all those who have
worked to this end.
I created man for Myself and it is right that I should be ALL for him. Man will not
enjoy true happiness except with his Father and Creator, because his heart is made
for Me alone.
For My part, My love for My creatures is so great that I have no greater joy than
that of being among them.
My glory in heaven is infinitely great, but My glory is still greater when I am
among My children, men all over the world. Your heaven, My creatures, is in
paradise, together with My chosen ones, because it is there that you will contemplate
Me in an everlasting vision and will enjoy eternal glory. My heaven is on earth with
you all, o men! Yes, it is on earth and in your souls that I look for My happiness and
My joy. You can provide Me with this joy and it is also your duty towards your Creator
and Father, Who desires and expects this of you.
The joy I feel in being with you is no less great than that which I felt when I was
with My Son Jesus during His mortal life. My Son - it was I Who sent Him. He was
conceived by My Holy Spirit, Who I Myself am; in a word, I was always I.
Loving you as I loved My Son, Who am I Myself, I say to you, My creatures, as I
said to Him: you are My beloved children and in you I am well pleased. Because of
this I rejoice in your company and I desire to stay with you. My presence among you
is like the sun on the earth. If you are well disposed to receive Me, I will come very
close to you, enter into you, light you up and warm you with My infinite love.
As for you, souls in a state of sin, or who are ignorant of religious truth, I will not
be able to enter you; however, I will be close to you, because I never stop calling
you, inviting you to desire to receive the benefits I bring you, so that you may see the
light and be healed of sin.
Sometimes I look at you and feel compassion for your unhappy state. I
sometimes look at you with love, to dispose you to yield to the charms of grace. I
spend days, sometimes years, close to some souls to be able to ensure their eternal
happiness. They do not know that I am there waiting for them, calling them every
moment of the day. However, I never become weary and I still feel joy in remaining
close to you, always hoping that you will return to your Father some day and that you
will at least offer Me some act of love be-fore you die.
I will give you an example of a soul who is facing sudden death; this soul has
always been for me like the Prodigal Son. (Note by Mother Eugenia: “I saw this example
as fact, exactly as our Father dictates it and I write it.”)
I lavished benefits on this soul, but he wasted all these benefits, all these gifts
that his most loving Father provided for him. More than this, he offended Me gravely.
I waited for him, I followed him everywhere, I gave him more favours: health and
wealth, that I caused to result from his work, to the point of superfluity. At times My
providence granted him further gifts. He therefore had plenty of everything, but he
saw it all in the sad light of his vices, and his whole life was a fabric of errors because
of habitual mortal sin. But My love never tired. I followed him all the same. I loved
him and, most of all, in spite of his rebuffs, I was happy to live patiently close to him,
in the hope that maybe one day he would respond to My love and return to Me, His
Father and Saviour.
At last his final day is approaching: I have sent him an illness in order to make
him come to his senses and return to Me, his Father. Time passes and My poor son -
he is 74 - is at his last hour. I am still there, as always: I talk to him with even more
kindness than usual. I persevere, I call My chosen ones and ask them to pray for
him, so that he may ask for the forgiveness I am offering him... And now, before
breathing his last, he opens his eyes, admits his errors and understands how far he
has strayed from the true path that leads to Me. He recovers his senses and in a
weak voice, which none of those around him can hear, he says: “My God, I can now
see how great Your love for me has been and I have offended You continually with
such a bad life. I never thought about You, my Father and Saviour. Now You see
everything and I beg forgiveness for all this evil which You see in me and which I
now discern in my confusion. I love You, my Father and my Saviour!”
He died at that very moment and now here he is, before Me. I judge him with a
paternal love: he called Me Father and he is saved. He will spend a period of time in
the place of expiation, and after this he will be happy for all eternity. Having taken
pleasure during his life in the hope of saving him when he repented, I now rejoice
even more, together with My celestial court, at having realized My de-sire to be his
Father for ever.
As for the souls who live in justice and sanctifying grace, I show My happiness
by living in them. I give them Myself. I transmit to them the use of My power and
through My love they find a foretaste of heaven in Me, their Father and their
Thus ends the first part of the Message.
