“My beloved ones, I am Saint Bernadette. Many times I have requested, through this child, to speak to each child here individually, and so My Messages of Love touch each heart; it is done through the Rays of the Power of God, through the Rays of His Heart. Today I come to speak to individual children, and I know that each one of you will understand what I mean when I say what I am about to say.
First of all, whenever the world upon which you live is in great need, The Father sends a Message, usually of Hope, usually of Direction, and usually to give Strength. And now, in the time in which you live, children are fast turning away from the responsibility of accepting the Messages already given through children, of which Many are now Saints.
A long time ago, a Message was given to a young Woman. You know Her as The Heavenly Mother. She listened in Faith, She trusted in Love and She submitted Her Will to The One Above. A young Man at that time also listened, for He knew that when the Announcement was made, it was far beyond what man knew; it was Phenomenon. So, He accepted Divine Way as She did. And They were able to walk a path for all good, but a path of Greatness. They looked natural in every way, They spoke natural in every way, and They did not stand upon the wall in the town and shout out, ‘We are Special in God’s Way and Realm.’ The people around Them did not know the Magnitude in which They walked, for you see, it was natural. They were Part of a community, Part of a way of life, and yet, the difference was submission of will totally.
And I could go on through time and give many Names of those who walked in such a manner for The Divine. But now, I will go back to the time I walked the earth, and of course, The One Who appeared to me was The Heavenly Mother, and what Beauty and Grandeur would be difficult to tell to each of thee. But it was Truth I stood in, it was love I felt; but more than love, I felt the need to be obedient to the Visions that had come to the world to give man strength to walk to be a Saint.
I say to you now as I stand Here in the Heavens, ‘The Goal of every child born to the world should be Sainthood.’ When you find yourself being selfish, know within your being that you are depriving yourself of Grace; know, too, that as you deprive yourself of Grace, your Soul will diminish in Light or not grow in Light, whatever God chooses. Keep in mind, too, that as you walk in the privilege of the human state, there are Rules you must obey, Commandments you must seek out, to see what They are all about. When was the last time you did this? And with each Commandment, do you see the fullness of it, the true meaning it is?
Oh My children, not always do you really look at the Commandment that you sin against. There is more to a Commandment than just the words it says. Sometimes gossip, sometimes intolerance, sometimes lack of self-discipline is against many of The Commandments, and yet you take each Commandment as you feel it is, and then you say, ‘I have not sinned against it according to my thinking.’
Men make excuses easily. Don’t make excuses, for I, Saint Bernadette say, as I truly speak through this child today, ‘Excuses become habits, habits can increase your weaknesses, and weaknesses are satan’s prey.’ So each time that you feel insecure regarding The Commandments God gave, look into Them, examine your conscience, and you will find a beautiful way. And then, do not forget to say, ‘I am sorry, God, I disobeyed.’ Be humble, He is. Be loving, He is. Be hopeful, He is. Be trusting, He is. Be just, He is.
I love you more than I can say, for My Love for you now is a Heavenly Way. And do not forget, human love is but an imitation of Divine Love that is waiting for you one day. So be it.”
