(I read St. Michael’s prayer.)

read the next one;

(I read The Memorare of St. Bernard (St Mary) being worried about something: when My friends read the messages and start thinking again of God, some returning to God and some being happy with hope unfortunately sometimes what happens in their delight is that they would talk about it to a priest friend, and he would warn them not to believe it’s God. In fact, I realised myself that out of the four priests here knowing the writings, two discouraged me and two encouraged me. I would have liked though that those that discouraged me and discourage others, I would have liked them to decide after having read from A – Z. Then if they still thought it nothing they should tell me why and explain it. How could one give an opinion without following it and discussing with me not more than once!)

fill up your heart with God’s Flame; I love you;

Beloved Mother, I fear that God’s message might be trampled by people who are not even following it up or reading it!

fear not, child,

I’m distressed!

I know, will you acknowledge, Vassula, the Works of Jesus?

I do …

Vassula, I have prayed for you, agapi mou, 1 be patient; lean on Jesus;

(I prayed to Jesus.)

lean on Me,

I’m fearing for Your message to be crushed, by those who have not read it even.

do not fear, love Me; to purify your soul glorifies Me, come, let us go; remember, us, we … grieve not;

(Jesus led me yesterday to Sunday Mass. I can’t follow the Mass properly, as all the rest, since I’ve never been taught the songs and procedure. I’m always one step behind the others, but I know Jesus is there and is talking to me. The bread felt consoling.)

2 Editor’s note: ‘Agapi mou’ means ‘My beloved’ in Greek.
