The Son speaks. "I told you earlier that My friends are My arm. This is true, for the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and My Mother, with all the heavenly host, are in them. My divine nature is like the marrow without which no one can live. The bones are my human nature, which was strong in suffering.
The Holy Spirit is like the blood, for He fills and gladdens the universe. My Mother is like the flesh in which were found My divine and human natures and the Holy Ghost. The skin is the whole heavenly host.
"Just as the skin covers the flesh, so did My Mother excel all the saints in virtue. Though the angels are pure, she is purer still. Though the prophets were filled with God's Spirit, though the martyrs suffered greatly, yet My Spirit was fuller and more fervent in My Mother, and she was greater than any martyr. The confessors certainly practiced complete abstinence, but My Mother had still more perfect abstinence, for in her was found My divinity along with My humanity.
"Thus, when My friends have Me, there is found in them My divine nature that vivifies the soul. My human nature is found in them and makes them strong unto death. The blood of My Spirit is found in them and renders their will quick to perform every good action. Their flesh is filled with My Own flesh and blood when they refuse to sin and keep themselves chaste with the help of My grace. My skin is joined to their skin when they imitate the life and conduct of My saints.
"In this way, My saints are aptly called My arm. You should become one of their members through the intention of progressing in virtue and by imitating them as far as you are able. Just as I unite them to Myself through the union of My body, so too you should be united to them and to Me through My same body."
