SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI
“My beloved children, I announce My way to you thusly so as to gather your attention, hopefully. There are so many children present here who know My Name, who know My way. I am Saint Francis of Assisi.
There is one here that prays much to Me. ‘The child,’ I will say to now, ‘must understand that all the prayers I have heard, and I want you to continue them, for as you continue to pray you will grow stronger in the purified way; for, without Purity, no child can enter the Kingdom of Heaven Where I am.’
Men in the world must reach for the purified state. They must understand that to walk in the purified way is to walk truly in the beauty of being man. Do not forget that purity comes with attention first to the Ten Commandments, and through These Rules, through These Commands laid down for all mankind, you will better learn to understand your weakness and the weaknesses of others.
And I, Saint Francis of Assisi, come today and say, ‘Bear in mind this one terrible sin that some of you might have today, and that is the sin of stealing another child’s dignity, another child’s way.’ So, when you gossip, when you talk, and when you cause harm to another man’s name, bear in mind, you have stolen a great thing.
Stealing does not just mean a material way. There are many meanings to a simple word, so do not forget, ‘Thou Shalt Not Steal.’ That means, also, the beauty of another’s name, the beauty of another’s day, the beauty of another’s dignity, and yes, you must not steal the health of a human being, and you can do this. You can steal the mental and the physical very easily by being cruel, being unkind, being unconcerned.
So do not forget, ‘Thou Shalt Not Steal’, a very important Commandment that He gave a long time ago through a son and to a son who gave it to the world, and Who now stands Here, not just as Moses, but as Saint Moses, for you see, He was gathered into the Arms of The Father and Blessed Divinely. So be it.”
