To My beloved Africa
Today we will dedicate this work of prayer for the innocent and poorest souls of Africa so that, after each one of them has gone through the learning of misery, of suffering and of pain, it may receive the grace of being before the celestial glory.
Now, with My first and initial monastery of consecrated nuns in Angola, the entire Work is called by the Mother of God to collaborate in some way toward this mission of charity and of service that has just begun.
Just as My beloved Son asked Mother Teresa of Calcutta to serve and be among the poorest of the poor, today I, as the Lady of the Poor and of the Holy Innocent, ask each child of Mine who listens to Me, to be in Africa with the poorest among the poorest, especially with the most innocent, with My little children, with the orphan children and those abandoned by their own families.
I wish that the entire Work, just as all those who are awakening through it, may have in their prayers My beloved Africa so that the celestial goods that will convert into help and humanitarian service can descend from Heaven to be offered in Africa.
With all of this request, My children, the ardent wish of your Heavenly Mother is to bring love to those who do not have it and relief to those who suffer.
This is the time when injustice and inequality afflict the most innocent and poor, those who have nothing. But also, My children, this is the time of miracles, miracles that your own lives can accomplish through your donation, your support and your service to My little children of Africa.
This Work, blessed by the Celestial Father, has the mission of bringing love in order to heal the pain of the world, not only with an expression of tenderness for the one who has never received it, but also through a gesture of service and love to those poorest among the poor.
Be in the desert like Mother Teresa of Calcutta who, in spite of being in the void and in solitude, knew how to find the Lord in her neighbors.
And everything she sought in inner compensation faded away. Her faith became stronger and was consolidated in simply fulfilling the Will of God and comforting the poor, in body and spirit.
It was in this way that Mother Teresa found God and merged into Him, even though she did not entirely perceive Him.
Be in the desert like Mother Teresa of Calcutta, strengthening yourself inwardly, neither in the sensory world nor in a mystical union with God, but rather in a palpable faith and a constant overcoming, proving and experiencing the Presence of God in those most in need, being nothing to the world and to the self, and everything to God, everything to the Heart of the Redeemer, Who tiredly beat in the poor and the oppressed, in the lonely and the lost.
Seek, child, to live your desert, consolidating your faith. Know that each desert brings a leap into infinity and this happens in many ways.
If you thirst for sensations and inner experiences, thirst for self-realization and seeing God, and yet He keeps you in the void, discover that maybe the Will of God will be revealed to you where you least expect, in that space where it is hard for your love to reach, where your resistances block your steps and do not allow you to enter, where your weaknesses prevent you from discovering the need for love. There is God, waiting for you.
In the desert, leave your desires and aspiration, your needs, your deepest anxieties. And when you have nothing, the Creator will show you where He is hidden, calling for you, seeking your gaze, your faith, your heart.
Who knows, child, maybe your desert will be the desert of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, where God is revealed from the outside inward and from within your fellow being to your inner being.
