“Which of these is easier to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you’ or to say ‘Get up and walk’? But to prove to you that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins” – he said to the paralysed man – “I order you: get up, and pick up your stretcher and go home.” And immediately before their very eyes he got up, picked up what he had been lying on and went home praising God.
Luke 5 : 23-25
Dear children! Today I call you to prepare your hearts for these days when the Lord particularly desires to purify you from all the sins of your past. You, dear children, are not able by yourselves, therefore I am here to help you. You pray, dear children! Only that way shall you be able to recognize all the evil that is in you and surrender it to the Lord so the Lord may completely purify your hearts. Therefore, dear children, pray without ceasing and prepare your hearts in penance and fasting. Thank you for having responded to my call. December 4, 1986
