John 9:39 Then Jesus said, “I came into this world for judgment, so that those who do not see might see, and those who do see might become blind.”
“Beloved child of my heart, do not take your faith for granted. Do not presume to be beyond temptation. Do not stop your vigilance. Faith is a flame that must be protected. As the days darken there will be much to test your faith. Do not rely on your own strength, but in all humility earnestly ask for grace upon grace so that your faith may not fail in the time of trial. Remember how only a few faithful souls were found at the foot of the cross? Pray that you will be counted among their number. Children, take the hand of my Mother. If you do this she will not let you be put to shame.”
O Jesus we know very well how weak we are now. What will become of us when we are put to the test? Without grace we are lost! In your mercy, in the Divine Will, and through the prayers of our Mother and all those who stayed with you at the foot of the cross, grant us grace upon grace, that we will not be put to shame when our faith is tested. Jesus and Mary we trust in you. Save souls! Amen.
