“As Jesus drew near, he saw the city and wept over it saying, ‘If this day you only knew what makes for peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes. For the days are coming upon you when your enemies will raise a palisade against you; they will encircle you and hem you in on all sides. They will smash you to the ground and your children within you, and they will not leave one stone upon another within you because you did not recognize the time of your visitation.’ ” (Luke 19:41-44).
“Do not say, ‘His mercy is great; my many sins he will forgive.’ For mercy and anger alike are with him; his wrath comes to rest on the wicked. Do not delay turning back to the LORD, do not put it off day after day. For suddenly his wrath will come forth; at the time of vengeance, you will perish.” (Sirach 5:4-7).
On May 22, 2016, Bishop Hector Sabatino Cardelli approved the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary in San Nicolas, Argentina, and acknowledged them as supernatural. This is the highest form of Church approval. Another bishop previously approved the messages.
The apparitions and messages are some of the sternest ever approved by the Church. They warn of chastisements, the loss of two thirds of the world to evil, the great danger to earth, and that humanity is hanging by a thread.
Mary gave the messages to Gladys Herminia Quiroga, a middle-aged housewife and mother, from 1983. By 1990, she had received approximately 1900 messages.
Mary said, “You must be warned, children, the plague is big. At these moments all humanity is hanging by a thread. My children, the senseless person is dead, even if alive, because he does not fear the justice of God, nor fears not fulfilling of His commandments. He wants to ignore the fact that the Lord’s day and his judgment will arrive. Blessed are those who fear God’s judgment.”
“God’s warning is over the world. Those who stay in the Lord have nothing to fear, but those who deny what comes from him do. Two-thirds of the world is lost and the other part must pray and make reparation for the Lord to take pity. The devil wants to have full domination over the earth. He wants to destroy. The earth is in great danger.”
So let us pledge to make reparation for the Lord to take pity, as Mary requested.
Mary also said, “The majority of mankind has allowed itself to become contaminated and as a result the world is under a warning. . . . The young find themselves facing a corrupt, horrifying world. Do not allow yourselves to be taken in by the calamities which you have before your eyes. At these moments all humanity is hanging by a thread. If the thread breaks, many will be those who do not reach salvation. That is why I call you to reflection. Hurry because time is running out; there will be no room for those who delay in coming!”
Mary tells us, “The weapon that has the greatest influence on evil is to say the Rosary.” She described pride as a “giant evil” in the world of today. To fight this, she said that there should be special devotion to the Holy Rosary and perpetual novenas, “never interrupted.”
So let us pledge to pray the Rosary. Please join us in 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting.
And let us pray perpetual novenas to our Lady of Guadalupe. Click here to pray the prayers.
Mary gave us hope and said, “A new time has begun. A new hope has born; attach yourselves to this hope. The very intense light of Christ is going to be reborn, for just as on Calvary, after Crucifixion and death, the Resurrection took place, the Church too will be born again through the strength of love.”
