He called one of the servants and asked what this might mean. The servant said to him, 'Your brother has returned and your father has slaughtered the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.' He became angry, and when he refused to enter the house, his father came out and pleaded with him. (Luke 15:26-28)
These are the times of my strong admonition - Come back, O humanity so far away and depraved; come back along the road of conversion and of a return to the Lord of your salvation...
These are the times of the great chastisement - The cup of divine justice is full, is more than full, is flowing over...
These are the times of the great return - Yes, after the time of the great suffering, there will be the time of the great rebirth, and all will blossom again...
These are the times of the great mercy - The Father thrills with ardor and wills to pour out upon this poor humanity the torrents of his infinite love... (MMP #357, July 1987)
In your hearts carry the sufferings of Jesus, and my sufferings as well, for the agonizing condition in which the Church now finds herself in every part of the world. Error is being taught and propagated beneath the ambiguous formulas of a new cultural interpretation of truth; the spirit of the world finds welcome; it spreads its malignant influence and leads so many souls to accept sin, to justify it and to live in it; loss of faith is becoming a deluge, and in many places of worship the images of the saints have been removed, even those of your heavenly Mother..
The apostasy has now been spread into every part of a Church betrayed even by some of her bishops, abandoned by many of her priests, deserted by so very many of her children, and violated by my Adversary.
These are the terrible and painful times of your purification. Never so much as now must you look to me, in order to be consoled, to be defended, and to be saved.
I am the Mother for these, your times. I am Mother for you in the present hour of purification.

When the turn-around of the world back to God begins and Peace reigns, and it will happen soon, it will be a time of wonder and great joy. We who have been "in the trenches" for years and striving for this moment, must take care to love those who are finding their way back to God, so that we do not become an impediment to their salvation. Even to those who had been enemies of the faith and may have persecuted us we must not show resentment, anger, nor bitterness. As Jesus once said, we must love our enemies and pray for our persecutors.
Life on earth is a long and sorrowful antechamber through which one must pass before entering the kingdom prepared for you by the Heavenly Father. In this kingdom my Son Jesus is already arranging a place for each of you. The angels joyfully await your arrival, and all the saints pray and burn with love in expectation that all these places will one day be forever occupied, and occupied by you. (Blessed Virgin Mary to MMP #269, August 15, 1983)
'The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good tidings to the afflicted...They shall build up the ancient ruins , they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations. (Isaiah 61:1, 4)
