(Congress in Ottawa)

(Before speaking to the youngsters: message that was read out to them.)

O Lord,
my Life, my Joy, my Smile,
my Plenitude, my Rock, my Salvation,
my Sweet Torment,
let Your arrows fly on Your Target;
in the path You prescribed for me,
I find Your Presence,
the Reward of Your arrows,
and, on walking,
You fill my soul with living waters,
so, what more could I ask?

display then My marvels and My kindness to this wretched generation; I am glorified every time you pronounce My Name with love; I love you, My pupil; tell them1 to allow Me to become their personal Teacher, their welfare, their guide, their counsellor and mostly their Holy Companion; My Law is a Law of Love, My Law is a Law of Hope; but the evil one contradicts the Truth;

if you wish, My child, you can be taught through My Own Lips! do not be ashamed to confess your sins, My good pleasure is to forgive you; I shall show My sweetness towards your weakness because My Love for you is Infinite;

I tell you: soon, very soon, God will indeed be coming to live among you; I bless each one of you leaving the Sigh of My Love on your forehead;
