The Message from Our Lady given to all humanity through the seer Raffaele Ferrara 3rd February 2018

"Dear My children, even today My Son’s giving Me the grace to accompany you, as a mother, to the Eternal Bridegroom. Only by wishing God, you can you fall in love with Him, as I fell in love with Him, saying My "Yes". "Yes" means: "here I am". You can fall in love and follow in His footsteps. I also was troubled by everything I was listening to, but I heard that it was a Voice from Above. My children, if you want and wish to hear God's voice, it’s necessary to listen, so that each of you can discover His plans. My children, you can't understand God's love reasonably, but there's only to love; and you, My children, who are in suffering in this earth, transform it into grace. My Son tells you: "Bless everything, don't curse!": Holiness is obtained only with the Holy Spirit's help and, when the cross becomes heavy, fix the gaze to Him. He took all your pains from the Cross. Learn from Him and you'll see that all your pains will turn into blessing. Know, My children, that when a suffering arrives, which you haven't asked and you'll be able to give it to God, at that moment the grace of faith arrives. For this reason I ask you to become Apostles, because a suffering isn't comparable to eternity. Pray, My children, to have this grace, in order to be the witnesses of love and consolation. Every day it's necessary to say your "Yes". But if you don't live God's Word, you can't recognize true peace. Pray, pray, pray, My children, so that you may live in truth, because Satan wants to seduce you, making you believe that there’s no sin. My children, I'm exhorting you to witness the truth and don't make yourselves stolen hope. I'll always be next to you. It's necessary, My children, to be close to Confession and to all the other Sacraments with the Pastors' help. Pray, pray, pray! "
(A note from the seer: When Our Lady arrived, as usual I recommended Her all the sick and all of you. Before leaving, She blessed us with Her love.)

The Message from Our Lady given to all humanity through the seer Raffaele Ferrara 3rd February 2018

GENERAL OBSERVATIONS


A - These words are only an exhortation Message (1 Co 14/3). Neither prediction of future, nor revelation, nor devotional prescription: ... only the Gospel !
B - The "Fiat" of Mary pronounced in the Holy House of Loreto is underlying the first part of the text while its acquiescence (Jn 19, 25s) at the foot of the "dawning" of the Cross is evoked in the last part
C - Since about 1960, we have found here and there great hesitations to talk about the Cross and its needs. This is due to the painful latent that crossed the Christian expressions among  the years comprised among the fifteenth century and the nineteenth century. They had too often presented a spirituality of an insistent suffering on voluntarism, asceticism, merit without love. These exposures were too disconnected about the salvation mysticism and about Jesus’s and Mary’s contemplation. Faced with the desertion of the masses, the great-hearted Apostles wished to put an end to a gloomy religion.
D - We are asked to become joyful apostles by muted truths in the modern hedonistic and permissive mentality.

COMMENT


- I fell in love with Him, saying My "Yes". "Yes" means: "here I am". You can fall in love and follow in His footsteps.

The French mystic Mother Mary of the Cross (stigmatized during the years comprised among 1933 and 1998) is at the origin of a spirituality of the Offer that She summarized among these three words: ECCE - FIAT - MAGNIFICAT. At the beginning of this Lent we are invited to a virile spirituality of generosity. This "Via Crucis" of our life will not be sad (as the seer Raffaele Ferrara is not sad) because, in the darkest circumstances, we will feel the warm tenderness of Mary present on our sides.

- My children, you can't understand God's love reasonably, but there's only to love; and you, My children, who are in suffering in this earth, transform it into grace.

The book of Job demonstrates us that suffering will always be a scandal for reason. But the heart, informed by the Spirit, transformed by love, obscurely understands the pain. This was the case of St. Josephine Bakhita who, sold as a slave five times, subjected Herself - even before Her baptism - to all ill-treatments. The whole Paschal mystery that we are preparing to live in Lent is here present. Death turns into life, pain into glory, fear into trust, sterility into joy. The association between Cross and Joyis an obscure Christian paradox for reason, but bright for the simple heart visited by the Spirit. Let's think of St. Francis learning true joy to Brother Leone. Think of the joy of Carmel, of the smile of little Theresa and of Mother Teresa. Let us think of Theresa Neumann's Franciscan exultation, to Marta Robin's joy. Among modern mystics we do not find masochism and unhealthy sadness. Let us think of the Medjugorje climate, of Vicka's smile. The seer Raffaele Ferrara is part of this tradition. He is visited by the Cross but never talks about it while spreading overflowing joy everywhere. It is a disarming, disconcerting thing that disturbs at the beginning.

- My Son tells you: "Bless everything, don't curse!": Holiness is obtained only with the Holy Spirit's help and, when the cross becomes heavy, fix the gaze to Him.

It is not a matter of becoming invincible, invulnerable Stoics, insensitive to suffering, but, instead, in the smallness, of becoming lambs sacrificed for love under Jesus's and Mary's benevolent gaze.

- He took all your pains from the Cross. Learn from Him and you'll see that all your pains will turn into blessing.

The Cross replaces the apple tree of Genesis and It becomes not a cause of loss but of salvation (John of the Cross, Spiritual Canticle, verse 28

- Know, My children, that when suffering arrives, which you haven't asked and you'll be able to give it to God, at that moment the grace of faith arrives.
- For this reason I ask you to become Apostles, because suffering isn't comparable to eternity. Pray, My children, to have this grace, in order to be the witnesses of love and consolation.
- Pray, pray, pray, My children, so that you may live in truth, because Satan wants to seduce you, making you believe that there’s no sin.
We must become every day, and especially in Lent, Apostles of Joy. The challenge is important because the conversion of the world depends on it. He Who is Baptized understands that there is sin, even if in a few hours the conscience of guilt disappears because we are contaminated by the world opinions. This justifies the existence of "Mary's Pilgrims" to warm up our Christian convictions, to strengthen our weak wills, to eradicate our sly atheism. St. Paul and all the Great Tradition teach us. Sin does not give freedom but slavery. Meat is a prison if it is not transfigured by the spirit. Passions lead to endless sadness. Therefore, we are invited to a truthful Lent. By putting God first, by multiplying the sacrifices we will make the experience of Joy and Plenitude from here below.  A few days remain before Lent. We do not hesitate to take so much time to establish and write the purposes of this "spiritual spring"! (by Father M.F.)
