In the End My Immaculate Heart will Triumph
For private use
When we speak of a triumph we are also referring to a battle.
Triumph signifies the winning of a battle.
Blessed Virgin in Fatima speaks about the battle we are facing in
these times, which includes the general loss of faith, the loss of
many souls, wars, and destruction. But the worst war
is the loss of faith, as Our Lord says:
“Do not fear those who can kill the body, but rather those who can
kill the soul” (cf. Matt 10:28). The worst death is that of a soul
who loses faith – a soul far from God, far from
His love and commandments, drowning in a life of sin, running
the risk of eternal condemnation, or rather, eternal death.
This great battle we are waging today, which the Holy Father John
Paul II calls the “culture of death,” not only includes the
destruction of human life, but also the destruction of the soul. The
Virgin Mary offers us Her Heart as a sure refuge, while showing us
how in these particular times God has desired for the triumph to
come through Her: “Tell all the world that great graces come through
the Immaculate Heart of Mary” and “that God has entrusted to the
Immaculate Heart the peace and conversion of the world!”
(Words of the Virgin Mary in Fatima to Jacinta).
When Lucia asked Jesus why the conversion of Russia would be the
fruit of its Consecration to the Immaculate Heart,
Our Lord responded, “Because I want it to be seen clearly
that the triumph is of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and in this way
I will spread knowledge and devotion to the Immaculate Heart along
with devotion to My Sacred Heart.”
Why the Blessed Virgin’s battle against evil?
From the beginning of the Sacred Scriptures (Genesis 3) until the
end (Revelation 12) the Blessed Virgin is revealed as being in
enmity and in battle against Satan, his seductions, and his works.
Genesis 3:15: “I will put enmity between
you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will
strike at your head, while you strike at his heel.” Revelation 12:
“A great sign appeared in the sky, a
woman clothed in the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her
head a crown of twelve stars…Then another sign appeared in the sky:
a huge red dragon…ready to devour her child when she gave birth….and
the woman fled into the desert…the dragon pursued the woman, but the
woman was given two wings of the great eagle, so that she could fly
to her place in the desert…Then the dragon became angry with the
woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring,
those who keep God’s commandments and bear witness to Jesus” (v.
Since the rebellion of Lucifer, the Blessed Virgin plays a most
important role in this spiritual battle. When God created
Lucifer (the morning star - bearer of
light) he created a magnificent creature who participated in his
freedom and power. When Lucifer and his angels rebelled, claiming
“we will not serve,” it was precisely in response to the
announcement of the future event of the Incarnation: God would be
made man, born of a woman, by the power of the Holy Spirit. God
revealed His plan for the salvation of man from sin. The angels
would have to serve God-made-man, His mother and all the redeemed.
This he considered a humiliation, and along with his followers, he
rebelled, and they were subsequently banished from heaven. Satan,
from that moment on, made himself the bearer of darkness, rebellion,
lies, pride and arrogance. He became (forever) the enemy of God,
the enemy of the woman who brought to the world God-made-man, and
the enemy of all Christ’s followers of whom She
is spiritual Mother: Her offspring.
the salvific design of the Most Holy Trinity, the mystery of the
Incarnation constitutes the superabundant fulfillment of the promise
made by God to man after original sin, after that first sin whose
effects oppress the whole earthly history of man (cf. Gen. 3:15).
And so, there comes into the world a Son, ‘the seed of the woman’
who will crush the evil of sin in its very origins…the victory of
the woman's Son will not take place without a hard struggle, a
struggle that is to extend through the whole of human history. The
‘enmity,’ foretold at the beginning, is confirmed in the Apocalypse
(the book of the final events of the Church and the world)…
Mary, Mother of
the Incarnate Word, is placed at the very center of that enmity,
that struggle which accompanies the history of humanity on earth and
the history of salvation itself… In this history Mary remains a sign
of sure hope” (John Paul II,
Redemptoris Mater, 11).
Blessed Virgin is the response of God to Lucifer. She is the new
morning star who brings us the true light; the bearer of salvation;
the bearer of the incarnate Word; the new Ark of the Covenant. She
is the great sign that appeared in the sky clothed with the sun –
shining with the light of Christ, with the moon
under Her feet (the moon symbolizing time).
a mother and queen She has authority over time. Although She lived
in time, She is above the vicissitudes of time and is not limited by
its condition, but rather has the
God-given power to be victorious in the battles we are waging in
these particular times and in each particular time. She is crowned
as a participant in the true power of Her Son.
She is queen of heaven and earth with twelve stars, which
symbolize the triumph of the Church in
Mary’s response, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord” (Lk 1:38)
is the perfect response to Lucifer’s cry of, “I will not serve.”
Mary’s response to Elizabeth (Lk 1:46-55) – praise, humility,
service and mercy – directly opposes that of Satan,
who is proud, egotistical, filled with hatred and
accusations, and seeks his own glory and autonomy.
Mary’s perfect cooperation with the salvific
plan of God, from the Annunciation unto the Cross, She with Her
“fiat,” participates in the “crushing of
Satan’s head.” Christ and the heel – which are Mary’s spiritual
children, Her descendents – crush the head of the serpent, that is,
the root of sin: pride.
root of the battle is sin. Mary, by being created Immaculate and in
virtue of Her Son’s future redemption, has power over the devil and
triumphs over his destructive works. She, as Immaculate, was free
from original sin and personal sin. Satan never had power over Her
– neither over Her mind, Her heart, or of Her actions. Therefore,
Our Lady calls us with urgency to an authentic conversion – to
renounce sin, indifference, lack of faith, and the rebellion found
in men of today. She, like a good mother in this decisive hour,
always battles for humanity – this hour in which the eternal
salvation of so many, many souls, including our own, is at stake.
not all the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin direct interventions
of Our Mother, at any given moment, to prevent and protect the
Church and humanity from the dangers and tragic consequences caused
by lack of conversion? Are not the apparitions of the Virgin a
shield against the works and deceptions of the devil, and are they
not renewing our faith and prayer? Like a good Mother, She always
places Herself in defense of Her
children, between the devil and man, to counteract the dark and
sinful effects of Satan’s diabolical actions.
Throughout the history of the Church, we have seen these obvious
interventions and interferences of the Blessed Virgin Mary, battling
and triumphing against the devil in defense of Her children; but
never has Her coming to intervene been as in these last centuries.
This is understood in light of what St. Louis de
Montfort said: as time goes
on the battle will intensify. Therefore,
Her presence will also be more clearly manifested.
According to St. Louis Marie de Montfort,
“God has made an irreconcilable enmity that will last and grow until
the end of the world and it is between Mary, his Blessed Mother and
the devil. It is between the children and servants of the Virgin
and the children and subjects of Lucifer. In fact, the greatest
enemy of Satan that God has raised up is Mary, his Blessed Mother,
to whom he gave since the beginning of earthly paradise, even though
at this point She existed only as a thought in his mind; to whom He
gave so much abhorrence to this enemy of God, so much capacity to
unmask the evil of this ancient serpent, so much strength to
overcome, battle and crush this arrogant monster, who fears her more
then all angels and all men, and in a way, even more than God
himself” (St. Louis de Montfort, True Devotion to Mary,
The greatest enemy God has raised against Satan is Mary. Why?
First, because Satan, who is so proud, suffers infinitely more at
seeing himself defeated and punished by a
simple and humble servant of God, and the humility of Mary humbles
him more than divine power (ibid.).
Second, because God has granted to Mary great power against demons (seen
in exorcisms and in Marian works). This power is a fruit of Her
Immaculate Conception – the enemy was never able to make Her
participate in the kingdom of darkness and
Third, what Lucifer lost because of pride, Mary gains with Her
humility. What Eve lost through Her
disobedience, Mary gains with Her obedience.
Eve’s obedience to the serpent led to Her perdition and that of all
Her children; Mary, by remaining always faithful to God and His
will, became the greatest channel of salvation – for Herself and for
all Her children (ibid, no.53).
“Mary, until the end of time, will always uncover the evil of the
infernal serpent and of his infernal plots;
she will make his diabolical counsels vanish and will free his loyal
servants from his cruel clutches. The power of Mary over all the
demons will shine particularly in the end times, when Satan will
strike at her heel, that is to say, on
the humble slaves and poor children of Mary, who are called to
battle against the gates of hell” (cf. ibid,
Is the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart necessary?
Satan, who is a powerful angel and the prince of this world, has
power over societies, nations and events. That power was broken by
the death and resurrection of Our Lord and that salvation is made
available to us the Church. We have the victory in Christ, but we
ourselves must wage this battle and live out this victory
continuously in each generation until the end of time. It is
precisely in this battle against Satan and his followers by God’s
children and the Church that the Virgin Mary comes to our aid
today. She is the captain of God’s great army, in order to help us
reach the victory that is truly
fulfilled in Her heart.
the apparition of Fatima on July 13, 1917, Mary said, “You saw hell
where the souls of poor sinners go; to save them, God wishes to
establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If you do
what I say, many souls will be saved and you will have peace…There
will be wars, hunger, persecutions of the Church and of the Holy
Father. To impede this I come to ask for
the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and Eucharistic
reparation on First Saturdays. If my desires are heeded, Russia
will be converted and there will be peace; if not, she will spread
her errors through all the world,
promoting persecutions against the Church. The good will be
martyred and the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various
nations will be annihilated …Suddenly the horizon will darken...
Later, a brilliant ray of light and hope will arise…In the end My
Immaculate Heart will triumph.”
this message from Fatima, Our Lady wants to awaken our awareness to
the fact that we are engaged in a battle that involves nations,
societies and kingdoms, and every individual residing in them. “We
cannot deny the existence in society of forces capable of great
influence which act with a certain hostile spirit towards the
Church. All of these things manifest the work of the ‘prince of this
world’ and of the ‘mystery of iniquity’ even in our day” (Synod of
Bishops, 1985, Final Report, 4).
key to Satan’s strategy, in our times, has been atheism, corruption
of the faith, and the total secularization of humanity. As the
Virgin in Fatima announced, Russia has gradually spread her errors,
not only at the political level, but more importantly, she has
spread her errors on a spiritual level through atheism, materialism
and human secularism. These belief systems reduce man to believe
only in the realities of the visible world and desire to put man in
control of everything with no need for God. Also, the Church, the
faith and the Scriptures have been under direct attack from a
“religion conformed to the world” (referring
not to its technology, but rather its doctrines); from false
religious accusations; from false concepts of religion; and from
false concepts of Church. Too frequently, “men, deceived by the Evil
One, have become vain in their reasonings and have exchanged the
truth of God for a lie, serving the creature rather than the
Creator” (Lumen Gentium,16).
can deduce with clarity that the major battle of these times, which
encompasses all that we experience today, is A CRISIS OF FAITH. We
have a crisis of faith because we do not believe in God
or in His Word. We lack obedience to God
who has revealed Himself and has also revealed the Truth. Lack of
faith leads to a life whose end is
earthly, not celestial and a life that denies supernatural values
and realities. In the Apostolic Letter of John Paul II,
Millennio Advenient, we read,
“It can not be denied that the spiritual life in many Christians
passes through a time of uncertainty which affects not only their
moral life but also their life of prayer and the
theological correctness of their faith. Faith, already put to the
test by the challenges of our times, is sometimes distorted by
erroneous theological views, the spread of which is abetted by the
crisis of obedience to the Church’s Magisterium”
Holy Father is telling us that our faith is being tested in these
times because error has entered all the areas of our lives:
spiritual, moral and doctrinal. Due to the crisis of faith, our
minds have become darkened and our consciences are confused and
disoriented. Sin is no longer called by its name, and it is because
of this that we see so much chaos, intellectual pride, rebellion,
the seeking of truth outside of God, and the defining of truth in
accordance to each one’s personal interpretation and circumstance,
i.e. relativism. There also exists a fascination for the occult and
New Age movement. All this confusion can even be, at times,
observed within religious circles.
Because of this, the triumph of the Immaculate Heart is necessary,
for when the Church wages a battle like the one of our times, we are
in need of a Mother to come to our aid, to take us to the desert
(Rev. 12), hiding us in Her heart, feeding us with Her firm faith,
Her disposition to the Word, Her obedience to the revelation of God;
forming us with Her maternal mediation,
with Her teachings, Her direction and counsels; and protecting us
from evil, defending us in the battle for our souls, keeping us
closely guarded in Her heart, where the devil can not enter or rob
us. “Be not afraid, my Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and
your safe path to God” (the Virgin Mary to Lucia).
is urgently necessary in these times for the Blessed Virgin to have
a powerful victory over evil: the triumph
of the Immaculate Heart, the triumph of grace over sin, of light
over darkness, of truth over error, of holiness over corruption, of
peace over war and violence. “The triumph of the Immaculate Heart
of Mary is necessary for the salvation of humanity, to show us
Jesus, the blessed fruit of her womb” (John
Paul II: Angelus, July 8, 1984).
John Paul II writes about a statement of Cardinal August
Hlond when he [the cardinal] was
dying: “‘The victory if it comes will come through Mary.’ After my
election as Pope, as I became more involved in the problems of the
universal Church, I came to a similar conviction: on this universal
level, if victory comes it will be
brought by Mary. Christ will conquer through her, because He wants
the Church’s victories now and in the
future to be linked to her” (Crossing the Threshold of Hope,
Triumph of the Immaculate Heart is also
the triumph of the Church. The Holy Father has understood and
taught that She will bring the new springtime to the Church; then
the faith will reappear, the Church will shine, and
the heart of Christ will triumph.
In what does this triumph consist of?
consists of the spiritual re-conquest of
the entire world – that is to say, it is
the return of our hearts to Her Son so we once again belong to
Him. And the sure and perfect way to
reach the Heart of Christ is the Immaculate Heart. As our mother,
She wants to do all that is possible to
return us to the way of Her Son, to take us to Him, to reveal to us
the only Lord and Savior. She wants to show us the way we have
lost: love, faith, conversion, the sacramental life, moral values,
family values, obedience and fidelity to God and His commandments.
She is coming to find us because we have lost the way. She is
finding the hearts She loves and taking them to the Heart She loves…
to the Heart of Her Son and to the Heart of the Church.
“The Immaculate must conquer the whole world and each individual, in
order to return them to God. It is for them that we should
recognize her for who she is and submit ourselves to her and to her
reign, which is all love and tenderness” (St. Maximilian
should always think of the triumph of the Blessed Virgin Mary in
terms of the destruction of sin, its structures and its
consequences. This belongs precisely to the triumph of the
Immaculate Heart because the battle is fought in the hearts of men –
men who have become hardened, who have distanced themselves from God
and hold on to darkness and sin, the world, the flesh and the devil.
She – in whose heart one lives in fullness the Redeemed triumph of
Christ – wants to make us participants in this victory, manifesting
to each one of us and to all nations, the triumph of Her Heart, the
triumph of grace over sin, of love over
egoism, of peace over violence, of renewed faith over atheism, of
loving devotion over indifference and frailty, of revealed truth
over lies, heresies and false religions.
How will this triumph come about? What will be the means?
“The words [of Fatima]…at the end of the century, seem to be close
to their fulfillment” (John Paul II, Crossing the Threshold of
This triumph will open its way through [various significant] events,
and it will be realized in history by our response to the work of
Our Mother in these times, to our faithful obedience to Her
petitions and directions. It will also come through the sacrifices
of the modern day apostles (the sons of Mary, the lovers and adorers
of the Eucharist, those faithful to the Pope), who will follow the
footsteps of the twelve Apostles after Pentecost; they will have the
same spirit of surrender that led to martyrdom for the faith; they
will shed their blood if that be God’s merciful design; at the very
least they will remain firm in their witness to prayer, sacrifice,
love, peace, and truth in this present, difficult hour.
When and how?
do not know exactly the how and when, but we know the means the
Blessed Virgin is giving us to promote and accelerate this triumph.
In the same July 13th message, She
told us, “To impede the spiritual battle and crisis of faith I come
to ask for the Consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and for
Eucharistic reparation on first Saturdays. If my desires are
heeded, Russia will convert and there will be an era of peace.”
1 - Consecration and Reparation
surrendering and entrusting ourselves to the Heart of Our Mother.
Allowing us to be formed, molded, guided and taught by
Her. It is filling ourselves with Her
interior dispositions and participating in Her graces. It is
placing ourselves within Her in order to
be protected in this arduous battle we wage against the forces of
is belonging to Our Blessed Mother; it is being claimed as an object
and possession of Her, which weakens the
power of Satan over us who wants to see us lost, removed from God,
know that the souls who surrender themselves to Her completely and
without reserve are able to better comprehend who Our Lord is and
the mysteries of God. The Mother of God cannot take us anywhere
except to Our Lord, His Church and His
Magisterium. The apostles of these times are formed in the
Immaculate and Maternal Heart, just like
the apostles who were with Blessed Mary in the Cenacle and received
the power of the Holy Spirit.
are to place ourselves at Her service:
“We desire to be perfect instruments of the Immaculate and be guided
totally by her, in perfect obedience” (St Maximilian Kolbe).
more than ever it is important to make Her
known and loved and be consecrated to Her. “Jesus wanted to use you
as a means to make me known and loved” (the
Blessed Virgin to Lucia).
consecration is not simply a prayer or an act of devotion; it is a
commitment and a way of life of obedience, humility, unconditional
service, openness to others, meekness, purity and abnegation.
Every act of consecration attracts and actualizes the triumph of the
Immaculate Heart. John Paul II’s act
of Consecration of the world set the
course for the final triumph of the Immaculate Heart that was
prophesized in Fatima. When we consecrate ourselves we accept Her as
Mother, Teacher and Queen, and we invite Her to exercise the powers
granted to Her to fulfill Her maternal mission in us.
We can deduce that the triumph of the Immaculate Heart in this
century has been woven, little by little, in a series of crucial
events in the life of the Church: apparitions, Marian
movements, consecrations, John Paul II’s
papacy, new congregations, new marian
charisms, the fall of Marxist political
structures that impeded freedom of faith and religion, the Marian
Year, the children of Fatima’s beatification, the renewal of the
consecration of the world and the Church in October 2000… and the
potent witness and opening of channels of Mercy through
John Paul II’s death and the new
pontificate of Benedict XVI.
are witnessing, not only in extraordinary ways, but more often in
subtle forms, clear and direct interventions of Our Mother who is
renewing the faith that has grown cold and confused, who is calling
us to a life of prayer, penance, love and adoration of the
Eucharist, and Reparation; calling us to the
sacraments; calling us to pray the Holy Rosary; and calling us to
fidelity to the faith of the Church.
Together with the consecration comes reparation:
December 10, 1925 Our Lady appeared with the Child Jesus to Sr.
Lucia. The Child said, “Have compassion on the heart of your
Blessed Mother which is covered with thorns and pierced continuously
by the ingratitude of men and has no one to make acts of reparation
to remove them.”
Blessed Virgin immediately responded, “Look, my child, at my heart
surrounded by thorns that ungrateful men have pierced without
ceasing by their blasphemies and ingratitude. You [at least] try to

plan of life that fosters conversion, repentance and growth in
Communion in reparation for our sins, those of the world, and
for offenses against the Immaculate Heart.
Do Adoration of
the Blessed Sacrament; be before the presence of Christ in
adoration, love, and faith for those who do not adore, love or
believe. Reparation attracts mercy.
2 - The Holy Rosary
every one of the Fatima apparitions Our Lady
asked us to “pray the rosary.” Why? It is a powerful weapon against
the crisis of faith. It is our faith contained in one hand. All
the principal mysteries of our salvation and redemption are
contained in the mysteries of the rosary; therefore, we deepen our
faith in a spirit of prayer.
With the Rosary great battles have been won: St. Dominic,
Lepanto (October 7, 1571); Brazil
Pope Pius IX is quoted to have said,
“Give me an army of people who pray the rosary and I will conquer
the world.” After every decade we have been asked to pray, “Oh my
Jesus, forgive us our sins, free us from the fires of hell.
Lead all souls to heaven, especially
those in most need of thy mercy.”
God’s people have won many great battles through the Virgin Mary’s
coming to their aid and directing them in the midst of tribulation:
John of the Cross, St. James and Our Lady of the Pillar in Spain,
Lepanto, Poland, Russia… In Genesis, we
read that during the time the Israelites were in the desert, the
pillar or column of cloud remained over them during the day, and the
fire remained over them in the night, in order to show them the way;
the cloud and fire never ceased to occupy its place before God’s
people(13:21-22). In the same way, the Virgin Mary is the new
pillar or column who, at the beginning of Christianity, revealed
herself to St. James, leaving Her image on a pillar; in more recent
times, She revealed Herself to St. John Bosco
in a dream, in which She went before the Church – and each one of us
– during our times of confusion and struggles, taking us securely to
the heart of Jesus.
will always intervene in the history of man. God has given Her
power for that purpose.
may also look at the story of Esther. In Fatima the Virgin wore a
particular detail on Her dress: a star. This helps us understand
the essential mission of the Blessed Virgin Mary in this apparition.
“Esther” means star. To better
understand we go to the book of Esther: Queen Esther intervened to
save the people from the plots and exterminations of the enemy.
Instead it was the enemy who was exterminated,
and she found favor with the King, who reversed all the actions of
the enemy against himself.
The Triumph of the Immaculate Heart is gradual and comes about step
have seen the fruits of the consecration of the world and Russia,
the fall of the political structures that impeded the faith. But
this does not signify that the world of today is a world of
believers. The Holy Father said in his visit to Fatima in1991, “I am
aware that the spirit behind communism is
not dead, that we run the risk of Marxism returning in another form
of atheism, and that exaggerated freedoms can tend to destroy the
roots of human and Christian morality. The new
condition of the people and of the Church is still dangerous
and unstable. Therefore, Mother, we need you and ask that you reveal
your love to each one of your children and to the nations” (cf. May
What did the Holy Father want to teach us? That the Blessed Virgin
has already achieved the first stage of the battle: the crumbling of
a structured system with political power; but there is still much
more that needs to crumble: all the errors spread by materialism,
insubordination, rebellion, violence, oppression, atheism,
secularism, dissension from the truth, and a world without God,
without openness to His mysteries. In other words, we have failed
to reach an end to the crisis of faith and its consequences within
the Church, within the world, within hearts, within families and
within entire nations. In this same message of Fatima we hear,
“Portugal will not lose the faith.” Then came the third part of the
secret (which was openly revealed in the year 2000). What does this
mean, that there will be nations that will lose it? The crisis of
faith has yet to be overcome. With this victory the total
fulfillment of the promise will come. “In the end my Immaculate
Heart will triumph,” and a time of peace will come.
“The current world crisis and the crisis within the Church, deep
down, will reveal a great hidden truth not visible to the
eyes: humanity’s impotence to resolve it on their own, despite all
its progress and technology. It is in the
depths of her poverty that she will feel the necessity to unite
herself to God in an urgent way. This will be the decisive moment
for the triumph of the Immaculate Heart” (John Paul II).
fruit of this triumph will be an era of peace. Why an era of peace?
Because in the triumph of Her heart, She, the
Queen of Peace will make us participants in the peace that resides
in Her heart – the peace which is the fruit of Her total
communion of love with Christ; the peace She receives from Him by
the perfect union of their hearts; the peace She possesses that
comes from Her perfect harmony to the will of God and His designs.
for the triumph:
“Those who surrender completely to the Immaculate will burn with a
powerful love that will set fire to all those around them and will
cause many souls to burn with this same love. This is how they will
conquer the entire world and each particular soul for the
Immaculate. This they will do as quickly as possible” (St.
personal consecration and an authentic life will knock down the
structures of sin that exist in our hearts. First, we must make
sure of Her triumph in our hearts; this triumph will lead the way to
Her triumph in society.
“Until the end of time, we must win the universe and each individual
soul, now and in the future, for the Blessed Virgin, and through
Her, for the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Those souls will reach a much
better and more profound love for the Sacred Heart than ever before.
Through their love the world will be set on fire and consumed” (St.
think we should recognize the seriousness of the moment and how much
depends on our response to the hour in which we live. Her
Immaculate Heart will triumph – how beautiful it would be to know
that we were instruments, however small, of that triumph. During
our last trip to Fatima with our pilgrims, when saying our farewell
to the Blessed Mother in the little chapel of apparitions, we were
exhorted to “go and be apostles of her Immaculate Heart.”
other words, we should respond to the call of Our Mother through the
means She gives us to reach the triumph of Her Immaculate Heart, and
we should, more than ever, make Her known and loved and use the
means She gives us for our conversion and the era of peace.
Anne Catherine Emmerich
(19th century mystic) tells
us, “I saw flying through the surface of the heavens a resplendent
heart in a red light, from which came a trail of white rays leading
to Jesus’ wounded side. Those rays attracted a great number of souls
that were passing through the Heart and the luminous trail of light
and entering into the side of Jesus. It
was explained to me that the Heart was that of Mary’s.”
