The Message from Our Lady given to all humanity through the visionary Raffaele Ferrara Saturday 7th October 2017
"Dear My children, also today, as a hope mother, I'm coming among you so that you may understand My coming. When I say: " they're the grace times that you're living", you've to thank My Son Jesus, who sends Me among you, but not everyone understands My coming, and for this reason I come knocking on your hearts, so that you can understand and fall in love with the prayers made heartily; only so, you'll start to go along a holiness path. My Children, you need a constant prayer, where the Truth may reign in you. You can't call yourselves My Apostles, if you live a life where God's grace doesn't abound; therefore, My children, I'm inviting you to decide to leave sin; just leaving sin, you can sense My Son Jesus's hug and you'll be filled with His Grace. You can't call yourselves My Apostles, if you live a life where God's grace doesn't abound; therefore, My children, I'm inviting you to decide to leave sin; just by leaving sin, you can sense My Son Jesus's hug and you'll be filled with His Grace. Don't be afraid to follow the footsteps that God traced for each of you, you aren't alone, but I'm beside you to guide you. I need your "Yes", so that you be the true Apostles and the Truth witnesses. Don't be afraid to testify the Truth to your brothers: Truth's the true salvation of humanity! Don't let yourselves deceive by this world full of pitfalls, where they want to make you believe that everything's normal and sorgive. My children, sins are called by name. You know the Commandments and I'm inviting you to live them! Only so, it’ll be the salvation of your souls; I'll protect your families. Pray, pray, so that you can be guided by My Love. Pray for Pastors, pray for your Parishes! Thanks for your presence."

A COMMENT ON THE TEXT
It is difficult to characterize this recent Message. In it, I would see a fair reproach concerning our ease. We get used too easily to the avalanche of maternal cares that fall on our groups for more than thirty years. What is extraordinary seems normal and it is not enough to overwhelm our lives. You will notice the title that Mary gives to Herself: Mother of Hope. In a world that seems to orientate itself on atheism and darkness more and more, we might feel abandoned or believe that Catholic religion be no longer the way of the future. On the contrary, let us realize that we are personally accompanied, with tenderness and continuity. But to have the conscience of our fortune we need to pass between the demands of a true prayer life. It is not a parade of devotional formulas, but of "prayer made with the heart," as it is recommended in Medjugorje. And this makes us think of the Eastern tradition of Hesychast prayer, as we find it in Philocalie. [See Gouillard: "Petite Philocalie de la prière du cœur. Ed. Seuil] The second part of the Message is a vigorous invitation to leave the sin that the modern world tends to banalise, to conceal. Things have to be put in place. Salvation lies only in moral and doctrinal Truth, not in the alignment of intellectual or behavioral fashions.
