Blessed Virgin Mary

Our Lady comes in a purplish gray. She has 2 swords in Her Heart, which I am told in my heart, represent Church and State. She says:

“Child, begin to write as I come in praise of Jesus.”

“Today, sadly, those souls consecrated to Me are in their agony, as was Jesus in the garden at Gethsemani. They are misunderstood, persecuted, and ridiculed. Though God is in their hearts, the world is unwilling to listen and accept it. They have set their hearts to pray for the conversion of unbelievers; and for this, the world does not know them. Those not of the Spirit do not accept the place the world is in according to God.”

“While there are those dedicated to good, there are many in important places both in the church and in governments who are opposed to God.”

“Everything, everything must be tested by Holy Love. For what opposes the laws of love, opposes God. You have not experienced the worst trials, nor have you experienced My greatest grace. In your sorrow, God will send angels to comfort you just as My Beloved Son was comforted at Gethsemani. I am always your protection — giving you words to defend yourselves against any attack. God is your provision. I am blessing you.”
