Consider, my Little Ones, that in Bethlehem, because the hour had not yet come for my Divine Son, God warned Joseph and we, the Holy Family, fled into exile leaving Bethlehem to suffer Herod'í slaughter of the Holy Innocents.
Now on this night we prayed, knowing that on the morrow we would leave, according to the Divine Will, not fleeing from the enemy, but embracing the cruelty of the enemy and his instruments - men.† It would be now the Slaughter of The InnocentóGod made Man, the Word Incarnate, Jesus Christ.
Here in Lazarusí home many would find comfort and spiritual strength. This was all according to the divine plan, for even though satanís power grew every hour and soon all of Jerusalem would be in his frenzied grasp, here at Lazarusí home a refuge was formed, and kept alight by the pure light of strong faith.
And, my Little Ones, I ask you each now to recognize your own vital need of a secure refuge.† Before y Divine Sonís heart was pierced by a lance on Calvary and oceans of Divine mercy were poured forth, my Divine Son established a refuge in this place where he was so honored, loved and served.
Thus, as you progress in your meditations I ask each of you to place yourselves willingly into the refuge of The Sacred Heart of Jesus through my Immaculate Heart.† Then, my Little Ones, you are each to become a place of refuge as Lazarus was.† It is not dependent upon a richly furnished home.† It is not a geographical location.† You are to be beacons of light guiding the lost flock back.† You are to open wide the doors of your loving hearts and by sharing your faith, strengthen both your own and that of your brother and sister.† When you do this, my Little Ones, you are at great peace.† And as the refuge of Lazarusí home remained untouched by all evil elements, so shall your souls remain pure and spotless in the time of great darkness.
Then shall God, in His power and glory, reveal His care for His Little Ones, just as My Divine Son prepared and cared for His flock as the darkness approached.
My Dear Children, my Divine Sonís passion, death and resurrection fulfilled the redemptive act.† But all mankind throughout all the ages must correspond, and unite with the redemptive act if salvation is to be won.
Ponder well your readiness to stand firm against the modernism, heresy, blasphemy and chaos which surround you everywhere.† Ponder well your littleness, and cast yourself at the foot of my Sonís Cross.† There is the refuge, the mercy, the strength that will not fail you, but lead you into the eternal embrace of God.
Pray! Meditate.† Walk with my Son in His holy passion.† The hour has come for all the world!† Heed my words which I give to you with immaculate love. Prepare!
