Isaiah 9:1 The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who lived in a land of deep darkness–on them a light has shone.
“My beloved, how my heart quickens when I think of the illumination that is coming to the world. Never before in human history has such a grace been granted to humankind. At the Incarnation, the Light of the World was veiled, but at the Illumination, each heart will see Truth come in the flesh. The scales will fall from their eyes and each heart will be invited to drink from the well of mercy. How I long for all my children to enter into this well with complete humility and abandonment. Pray, dear souls! The evil one will be ready to pounce on unsuspecting hearts. The battle is not over at the Illumination. Continue on your mission of fasting and prayer.”
Jesus, Light of the World, we wait in joyful hope for the grace of the Illumination, and offer anew in the Divine Will every prayer and sacrifice ever made on behalf of souls, especially those made by the Holy Family. May their love for souls bear unlimited fruit at the Illumination and may all souls find refuge in the Immaculate Heart. Come Lord Jesus! Amen.
