"Do not be afraid. Do not be anxious. Do not become lukewarm. Remember, I am with you always until the end of time. Behold, My little ones, I beg you to prepare, for I Come!"

      Those words above were the final words imparted by Our Lord in the final Message #632 on the Feast of the Solemnity of Corpus Christi on June 18, 1995 to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart. With this message the messages for the world from Jesus concluded as He once again entreats all His children to persevere and defend the faith, both inside the Church and outside. He calls for obedience to His earthly vicar Pope John Paul II and to reread Sacred Scripture, the Messages, and Church teaching and to ask the Holy Spirit for discernment. He emphasizes the mystery and power of the Holy Eucharist and warns us to preserve His Sacred Presence at all cost and calls us to take refuge in the Two Hearts. Prior to His final message, His Blessed Mother conveys her concluding words to the hidden flower four days earlier on June 14th. In this final message, Our Lady reminds us of the necessity to cling to the Cross, pray, do penance, partake in the Sacraments as often as possible, be humble and obedient, and rely on God's providence and Mercy to help us persevere as He has promised. She asks us in her motherly way to trust her Divine Son for "He alone is the Refuge, the Way, the Truth and the Life."
