Separate theses from the Treasuries of Divine Truth
as taught by the Queen of Heaven

through Myriam van Nazareth
"Dear souls, do pause to think for a while, look and listen deep inside of your hearts, and try to find there the connection with the heartbeat of God Himself. I whisper God’s Love inside of you. Listen to My voice, which was anointed by Eternal Wisdom and ignited by Eternal Love. Follow My calls and teachings of Love, and the fog will clear up in your hearts, so that you will again be able to see the beauty of a flower, an animal, and your fellow man". (Mistress of all souls, from the Revelation of February 19, 2009)

"Drink from Me the words I am offering you, for they are poured forth from the Wells of Eternal Wisdom. The soul who drinks from Me in a disposition of sincere Love will not, in these times of darkness and deception, fall prey to the drought of hopelessness, discouragement, confusion and pointlessness". (Mistress of all souls, from the Revelation of September 12, 2011)

The Mistress of all souls often teaches Myriam privately through metaphors and special images. Some of the images and the material for contemplation conveyed within the context of these private teachings are now released for the purpose of public teaching, in the form of separate theses intended to help souls develop their spiritual life.

In the present menu item separate theses, which have never been published before but are judged by the Mother of God as being useful for public teaching, will gradually be presented in strict accordance with Her instructions. Thus the Mistress of all souls aims at building an anthology to which She refers as 'Celestial sunbeams from the throne of Wisdom'.

Therefore material will frequently be added to the present menu item. In order that it may be more easy to navigate through the constantly growing content the separate theses will be numbered. This numbering does not in any way indicate any special preference for one thesis over another, nor does it refer to the chronological sequence in which the teachings were given by the Mistress of all souls to Myriam; it merely refers to the order in which the theses are released by Her to be published.

Heaven whispers

1. The redemptive power of Jesus’ trials

"Continuously opposing all kinds of events, situations and developments in life renders all trials of life unfruitful. I remind you of the fact the tremendous redemptive power of Jesus’ trials lay in His perfect surrender to the needs of God’s Plans. Without this surrender the entire Work of Redemption would have remained completely unfruitful. In a similar way I Myself bore the tremendous trials of My life on earth in perfect acceptance and driven by the desire that the seed which God had hidden in these trials would not lose its celestial fertility due to any emotional interference from My Heart which might in any way decrease the vital strength of this seed proceeding from God’s heart. Love, acceptance, willingness to serve and humility: These are the prerequisites for a fruitful life. Everything which deviates from these prerequisites renders service to the works of the darkness".


"The major lesson taught by Jesus’ Sufferings and His Death on the Cross is this: that Redemption from the condemning power of sin lies in:

  • the unconditional total acceptance of the crosses and trials of life as acts from Divine Providence with respect to one’s own journey through life;
  • unconditional self-denying Love for all fellow creatures and for God’s Works and Plans;
  • regarding oneself as quite unimportant, and on the basis of this awareness the unconditional willingness to give one’s life for the purpose of rendering service to God alone with a view to obtaining the highest possible well-being of all fellow creatures in time and for all eternity.

Keep in mind that 'giving one’s life' does not necessarily mean physical death but rather complete denial of one’s own needs, desires and expectations so as to live for the accomplishment of the needs, desires and expectations of all fellow creatures to the extent to which these needs, desires and expectations have got the potential to serve God’s Plan and do not jeopardize the Eternal Salvation of fellow souls".

2. The soul as a fruit tree

"The human soul is directed by Laws which are similar to those governing nature in its growth and bloom.

A fruit tree was made for the purpose of yielding fruits. To that end it mainly needs these four elements: a suitable soil, sunshine, rain and oxygen. If the tree has not got the opportunity to take root in a soil which contains the ingredients the tree is in need of, the latter will neither present a healthy growth nor yield healthy fruits.

Behold the human soul. If we compare the soul with a tree we can say it, too, needs a suitable soil, sunshine, rain and oxygen.

The soil in which the soul has to be rooted must be composed of sound pure Love, faith and hope. To the extent the soul’s soil actually contains a wealth of these ingredients the soul is truly rooted in God Himself.

The sun that must shine upon the soul is the Light of Divine Life. This Light is transferred to every soul in abundance, yet many souls block themselves off to this Light, often in waves, sometimes completely.

The rain is the grace which has got to irrigate the entire surroundings of the tree of the soul. This grace is granted largely in the shape of trials, crosses, the inconveniences of life, but also through other interventions from Divine Providence. Many souls make their roots impermeable to this water by opposing trials and crosses as well as many or all other signs of Providence. Consequently they gradually wither, their leaves fall off prematurely, and they yield but few fruits, if any at all. Besides, the few fruits they may yield are inferior and do not fully mature.

The oxygen is the breeze through which the Holy spirit breathes life into the soul. Many souls fail to duly absorb this oxygen.

The four elements soil, sunshine, rain and oxygen are mutually complementary. Insofar as they fail to duly complement each other the process of their growth is disrupted and the harvest of fruits will be poorer. (...)"

3. Abstaining from evil

The ability to abstain from evil was bought by Jesus’ Sacrifice on the Cross. Every soul who fails to allow her heart to merge undividedly with this Sacrifice (= total self-denying Love + unlimited unconditional service to God’s Works + perfect acceptance of all trials), deprives herself of all power to resist evil.

This means that the greatest enemies of the tendency to spontaneously resist acts of darkness are:

  • indifference to God and one’s fellow creatures (as opposed to Love);
  • selfishness, jealousy, living for the benefit of one’s own views and expectations, egocentrism (as opposed to rendering service);
  • opposing the decrees of Divine Providence regarding one’s own life, and feelings of dissatisfaction about 'feeling short-changed or neglected by God' (as opposed to acceptance).

Together these 'enemies' constitute the dispositions characteristic of the antichrist, and generate a constant darkness in the heart.

4. The journey through life

"You can picture every human soul’s journey through life as a journey of a thousand miles leading through many curves, up hill and down dale... Each and every step should contribute towards reaching the final destination. Besides the soul has but a specific amount of time to complete the journey. The more often she will sit down idle by the wayside and the more often she will make a step in the wrong direction the more time will be lost to reach the goal. Be aware that 'sitting down idle by the wayside' refers to every moment when the heart is not focused on God.

A soul’s heart is focused on God whenever the Law of true Love is actually alive inside, constantly prompting the soul to fill all of her thoughts, feelings, desires and aspirations with Light and warmth and spreading the latter all around, even in those moments when she appears inactive, i.e. in those quiet moments of live during which not one word is spoken and not one action is performed.

The soul also proceeds in the right direction on her path through life while she is not visibly active but within the silent confines of her heart she is nonetheless full of Light and warmth. Every thought, feeling, desire or aspiration which is filled with Light and warmth sends Love through the entire network of creation. On the other hand, thoughts, feelings, desires and aspirations which are filled with dissatisfaction, jealousy, indifference, resentment or the inclination to harm fellow creatures will send darkness through the entire network of creation.

In God’s eyes a crime is definitely not always a perceptible action through which a human being causes harm, to Him 'crime' is everything which proceeds from a human soul and which is a carrier of darkness and can harm the network of creation or certain elements thereof, no matter how big or how small these elements may be. This means that, in God’s eyes, a soul can commit serious crimes without performing even the slightest action, merely through thoughts, feelings, desires or aspirations which are laden with serious darkness.

Examples of actions and dispositions perceived by God as serious crimes, yet imperceptible to man, are malediction, casting evil spells, vengefulness, plans to retaliate, hatred, constant inclination to enviousness or jealousy, as well as any thought, feeling or desire which produces effects filled with darkness. In God’s eyes another form of serious crime is every persistent inner disposition through which a human soul turns herself into a bridge serving the darkness, i.e. through which a soul allows herself to be used frequently or constantly as a tool for the accomplishment of works and plans conceived by the darkness. Such dispositions can cause tremendous damage and/or chaos within the network of creation or in individual nodes (creatures) and channels (relationships and contacts among creatures) within this network.

This is why a great many crimes remain hidden to human eyes and why the judgment passed by God on the lives of a great many souls looks quite different from that which these souls themselves and/or their fellow souls have ever presumed or have ever been able to presume".


"There are souls who sit down by the side of their path through life so frequently and/or who make so many steps in the wrong direction that in the hour in which judgment is passed on their life God will establish the fact they have barely covered a few of their thousand miles. He considers this to be an overt profession of their lack of desire to reach Him. A soul who sincerely desires to spend her Eternal Life with God will go to any lengths to make good progress on her path through life, by:

  • filling all her actions, words, thoughts, feelings, desires and aspirations with as much Light and warmth as possible, i.e. with self-denying Love and acts of sincere service to God and to her fellow creatures;
  • sitting down idle by the wayside as seldom as possible, i.e. by avoiding all and any dispositions of indifference to God’s desires;
  • not ever making steps in the wrong direction by committing sins or hanging on to bad habits and vices.

Yes, the great lesson contained in the present teaching is once again this:

Human soul, spend every moment of your life, under all circumstances and in every detail, practicing self-denying Love, rendering unselfish service to God’s Works and Plans and to all your fellow creatures, and in a disposition of radical aversion to all darkness in your actions, words, thoughts, feelings, desires and aspirations. See to it that the Spirit of God may at all times, day and night, and at any point on your journey through life, find you harbouring an inner disposition filled with Light and warmth".

5. About the human soul’s vital capital

"In the hour of her conception every human soul is granted by God a vital capital. This capital consists of all abilities, gifts, graces, talents, and the germ of sanctity. To the extent to which the soul makes use of this capital for the achievement of the only purpose for which she was created – rendering service to the accomplishment of God’s Plan of Salvation for the benefit of all creation – it will yield interests, which I can even multiply so as to make a considerable amount that can be paid into the Divine Treasuries, from which the Master of all life prepares His graces. The soul’s conscience is conceived such as to enable the soul to keep focused on fulfilling this purpose. However, as soon as the human mind starts using the free will in such a way that the soul fails to render service to God’s Plan of Salvation but rather serves the accomplishment of her own views and expectations she is already committing a first murder: the killing of her own conscience, the holy alarm and navigation system which is meant to keep the soul closely connected to God.

If the soul puts her conscience out of operation she is actually cutting herself off from God, from His intentions and all of His Works, including the entire network of creation. Soon the soul will then deteriorate into an exanimated human being sinking into a distressing shallowness, for all guidance by the Holy Spirit is disregarded, and all of the soul’s behaviour, all her thoughts, feelings and desires are dictated by the basic law built on the image the soul wants to get across of herself.

The human being who acts this way starts to indulge in self-elevating conceitedness and self-glorification and thereby allows the dispositions of Lucifer to take root in her soil, which was once clothed by God in holiness. In so doing this human being pledges his vital capital to Satan. Consequently this capital no longer yields interests, on the contrary, in God’s accounts it is now mortgaged. Consider the difference:

In the hour in which judgment is passed on the soul’s life a soul who has led a life of exclusive service to God, both directly and through service to Me by virtue of the sacred covenant of consecration to Me, will give her vital capital back to God, increased by interests which may have run fairly high, especially if she has surrendered her vital capital to My power and put it at my undivided disposal by practicing the disposition of slavery towards My Love for the purpose of accomplishing My Works, which are geared to the establishment of God’s Kingdom on earth in the hour in which My foot will have crushed all works of darkness. The total surrender of the soul’s will to Me opens up her vital capital to receiving the gold treasure of My absolutely perfect Love.

A soul on the other hand, who has given her vital capital to Satan by elevating herself and thus turning into a bridge for the works of the darkness starts generating negative interests: Her vital capital is no longer a source of interests which are used for the preparation of Divine graces, but a source of debts, which are to be settled in purgatory or which, if they run too high, can lead to the soul’s eternal damnation. Eternal damnation is the price a soul will have to pay if she persists in greatly disregarding the gifts of self-denying Love bestowed upon her".

6. Salvation as the fruit of active dedication

As soon as a soul realizes how little she is within the framework of the entire network of creation there is a possibility she gets to think of herself as being too futile for God to even deign to look at her. However, this thought is unjustified, as nothing pleases Him more than washing and clothing the soul time and time again so she may become cleaner and cleaner and prettier and prettier. The soul who believes this, will learn the art of living with herself. This is indeed an art, for many souls never learn how to do it. Does this mean the soul need not regret her imperfections? By no means, for it is vital that you should perfect yourself in practicing true Love so as not to allow God’s wanting to wash and clothe you daily to let you succumb to any inclination not to make personal efforts to remain as pure as possible. Not that which God wants to do for you will bring you Eternal Salvation, it is the extent to which you actively collaborate with Him on this that will yield you Salvation.

God is waiting for your active collaboration. How is it that many souls do not take sides with the doctrine taught by the Mistress of all souls? This is definitely not due to the doctrine as such. The doctrine taught by the Mistress of all souls requires the soul to make a personal, persistent, active dedication towards her own sanctification. Not every soul who calls herself a Christian is willing to make active contributions. A great many Christians expect a Redemption which is simply being dropped into their laps by Jesus. If souls get the promise they will be delivered from their trials and crosses by Jesus, then who is going to be willing to keep carrying these trials and crosses whole-heartedly? The answer is simple: Those who truly love God and His Works. Who are these souls? The answer is equally simple: the true Christians, those who are not nominally Christians but are Christians in their concrete daily actions, their ways and lines of thinking, feeling and aspiring. Following Christ is not waiting for Christ to carry the Cross Himself again, it is saying to Christ: "Whatever it may cost me, I definitely want to join You in carrying the crosses of the world, for I find no joy in knowing my best Friend is suffering all alone so that I may be delivered from all sufferings even while I am still living on earth".

Waiting passively for Jesus to come and take one’s own crosses away, has got nothing to do with being a Christian, and a soul who promotes such thinking and such a way of approaching life also in fellow people is not doing God’s Works. Sitting on the fence where accomplishing God’s Works is concerned goes against God’s Law according to which the souls are to collaborate with Him actively, spontaneously and voluntarily. God does not impose His blessings and benefactions, the soul must merge her free will with God’s Will, only then will she be able to truly help make His gifts fruitful. In other words: God gives seeds, it is up to the soul to enable these seeds to bloom into flowers through an appropriate use of her free will. A soul who expects God’s interventions to come in the shape of blooming flowers will gather no merits. God prefers to give His graces in the shape of seeds, and this He does out of perfect Love: The merits of life on earth are determined by the way the soul deals with the seeds of grace with a view to having them bloom into flowers which bear witness towards God of the soul’s sincere active desire to do God’s Works.

7. About conscience

God provided for every soul to possess a powerful alarm system: conscience, which warns about every intruder and every inspiration which is not in accordance with that which God expects of every soul. The power supply to this alarm system is pure Love, the seed of which God provided for every soul. It is the soul’s own free will which determines whether she is keeping her alarm system connected with this power source or not.

The Queen of Heaven once referred to conscience as 'the soul’s immune system': In a physical body the immune system is activated as soon as a threatening substance (e.g. a poison) or a threatening organism (e.g. a bacteria, a virus, a mould, a parasite etc.) displays a hazardous activity or any deviation from normal physical processes makes itself felt (e.g. a cancerous or an inflammatory process). This is how the immune system works because Divine Intelligence has provided for it to be that way as a protection against everything which may pose a threat to a normal functioning of the body.

The ultimate purpose of the immune system is to assist in correcting or terminating the 'abnormal' situation or threat so as to restore the harmony between the body and the Divine Laws which try to govern the physical functions in such a way as to keep the body healthy. In a similar way the soul’s conscience will react as soon as the soul’s health is threatened by all sorts of aberrations in spiritual life. In concrete terms this is the case in every situation in which the soul is in danger of reacting in a way which is not in accordance with the law of true Love. This 'reacting' can take the form of an action, a spoken word, a thought, a feeling, a desire of an aspiration which may jeopardize the soul’s sanctity.

The soul’s conscience is therefore her inner signpost to Eternal Salvation. The soul’s conscience is where God has deposited His Code of Law, which is why our conscience is able to function as an alarm system which warns about every violation against God’s Law. A healthy conscience is constantly busy 'scanning' the soul’s inner dispositions, and will broadcast warning signals as soon as these dispositions show traces of impurity (darkness).

How does a conscience lose its health? In March 2015 the Mistress of all souls referred to selfishness as the major enemy of our conscience, saying: "Selfishness clouds the soul’s conscience. The soul who approaches everything from a constant attempt to satisfy her own needs and complete her own ways will only be able to do so to the extent to which she has first made her conscience invisible to herself". Basically one might say a soul is not likely to sin if she has not – even if only briefly – deactivated her conscience. Many souls make this a rather chronical situation in that they stop listening to their conscience and thus create a sort of artificial world in which they no longer see or hear any warnings. This situation could be compared with a situation in which an employee in a nuclear power plant would disconnect the alarm system in the event of an imminent catastrophe, subsequently strolls about all across the plant freely and without a care in the world without taking any measure nor precaution, harbouring a false sense of security because he sees no red warning lights nor hears any sirens, yet in the meantime exposes himself to major radiation.

The soul does pay a price for disconnecting her conscience: She will fall prey to an inner struggle, for her conscience will keep sending warnings, as it is basically a system which is connected directly with the Heart of God. God will not even for a single moment refrain from speaking in the soul in the language of Love, which is conceived to be the ignition mechanism activating the soul’s conscience whenever the latter is, for whatever reason, failing to function the way God intended it to do. He does so because He wants to keep motivating every soul to use her conscience in such a way that her entire behaviour and all her inner dispositions may preserve a perfect harmony with the Law of true Love. The extent to which the soul lives in accordance with this Law determines her eternal destination. As long as the soul will not flawlessly act upon the prompts she receives from her conscience there is no way for her to keep her journey through life oriented towards the gates of Heaven.

8. The seed of true Peace

For many souls life on earth is tantamount to an uninterrupted challenge to find happiness. Happiness can lie in a short-lived joy about an event with an unexpected positive outcome, or in a windfall in whatever field of life. True happiness, however, can be found on earth only in the disposition of heart which enables the soul to put the worries and shortcomings inherent to the material aspects of life on earth in perspective to such an extent as to no longer get overwhelmed by them. This disposition of heart is referred to as true Peace and is exactly what Jesus meant when He said "My Peace I give to you". The Peace of Christ is the disposition in which the soul no longer allows herself to be defeated by the adverse winds of life and manages to maintain the Light of true hope and brightfulness in spite of any darkness.

The soul will find Peace within herself to the extent to which she learns how to design her heart to be a flourishing garden of unconditional Love. The perfect example of a truly paradisical garden was Mary’s Heart. This is exactly why God set Mary as the great example for living an optimally fruitful life at the service of His Plan of Salvation based on the disposition of a heart experiencing true Peace. A heart in true Peace is a flourishing paradise, or a water which cannot get tempestuous even by the strongest gales, on account of the fact the water masses have found a solid and imperturbable inner balance.

True happiness and true Peace are not dependent on specific events, actions, experiences or places one visits, but on an atmosphere of contentment in the heart. Peace attracts peace, meaning that the more deeply a feeling of quiet peace takes root in your heart the more you are going to find this new peace in this, in that, in everything, similar to a single flower spreading its seed all around and thus providing for the makings of an entire field full of flowers. True Peace actually takes root in the heart when the soul is able to come to the conclusion that "all is good, as God has provided it to be this way for me because in some way or another it is necessary for my eternal Salvation...". In this disposition the heart no longer allows the worries and darkness surrounding her to become the master of her feelings, yet amply drinks the water of Divine Life which fills the soul ever more thoroughly with the awareness the Light is to gain an absolutely certain victory and the darkness is nothing more than a transitory phase which may yield many graces to the extent the soul will counteract it with the Light and the warmth of a sincere Love, a sincere faith and a sincere hope blossoming inside spontaneously and which she never again allows to wither because of any dark expectation.

Being aware of the presence of the Mother of God inside one’s heart is the most powerful seed of true Peace I know of. Whoever cherishes and waters this seed will gradually get a blooming garden that makes God’s marvels visible. God’s greatest Work of Wonder (Mary) is endowed with an unparalleled ability to spread Her seeds all around and to make them blossom in power and glory.

9. The deep meaning of the relationship between Jesus and Mary

There is some difference of opinions, even to the point of discord, among Christians as to every profound veneration of Mary. Is this an aberration, having regard to the fact that Christianity is centered around Christ? The Queen of Heaven Herself wants to advance an unambiguous thesis in this respect:

Jesus is God, Mary is a created soul. Nevertheless the whole system of God’s Plan of Salvation requires some clarification as to the relationship between Jesus and Mary. On account of a Divine Mystery there exists between Jesus and Mary a perfect mystical union of Hearts. The relationship between Jesus and Mary is similar to mixing milk and water: If you mix both of these in one container there is no way for you to separate them, unless through some artificial means, i.e. through human intervention. In the spiritual sense Jesus and Mary, too, can be separated only through an artificial procedure (human thinking). Both are merged in their will, and are therefore merged in their Works and in the effects of these Works, and they are dedicated to the proclamation and advancement of exactly the same theses, details included, because They derive Their Wisdom from the very same Source: God’s Heart, which is the Source of the only Truth and of perfect Wisdom. It is downright impossible to fall short of obedience and of bringing tribute to Jesus by obeying and bringing tribute to Mary, for Jesus’ words and Mary’s words both proceed from the one and only Will of God.

Therefore there could never be any contradiction between Mary and Jesus, unless in the event of some human falsification or deception, or of a perfectly erroneous interpretation on the part of a human mind. This is why it is to be considered an inspiration by Satan if one should believe the Science of Divine Life would not find its origin with God and, in so believing, would go on the assumption that God would put all emphasis on Jesus Christ (Son of God) and never on Mary (a created soul). This is a fallacy:

The Mistress of all souls is neither introducing any novel religion nor any religion deviating from Christian doctrine, She is purely and simply instilling in-depth insights into Christian theses and applications thereof in situations souls are able to recognize in their own environment and experiences, all of this merely serving the purpose of helping to accomplish God’s Plan of Salvation and enabling souls to actively participate in this accomplishment, thereby bringing the Christ’s Works of Redemption to full fruition in their own spiritual life. Redemption is not a gift one receives passively, it is a grace which is to be made fruitful through an active dedication of one’s own free will.

This is exactly where we can find the very depth of the relationship God brought about between Jesus and Mary: Mary’s mission lies in moulding and assisting souls in such a way as to better enable them to partake actively and spontaneously in opening up their own Redemption. Mary was fully equipped by God Himself to accomplish this mission in that He created Her as His absolutely perfect Work of Wonder. This is why She is referred to as being full of grace. She Herself fully accomplished this unique privilege throughout Her life on earth by actually practising Her fullness of grace in every single detail of Her life and of Her inner dispositions so thoroughly through Her immaculate sanctity, which was sustained by Her never committing even the slightest sin. It is exactly because She is not Divine by nature (like Jesus) yet human by nature and elevated up to the very highest summit of sanctity, that She is pre-eminently suited as a Model and Mirror of Divine Life.

Quite a few years ago already the Mistress of all souls expressed Her relationship with Jesus in two images: Firstly She is the Carrier of the beams from the Sun that is Jesus Christ, meaning that She is not Divine Light but the greatest Channel guiding this Light into the souls. Secondly She is like a stained glass window in a church building: Through Her the radiant Divine Light is refracted into many colors, symbolizing the fact that She divides the fullness of the sanctity of God’s Works into all virtues, which She will attempt to bring to bloom in the willing soul, and She will make it easier for the soul to absorb this Light. The radiant Light from God may, in a manner of speaking, dazzle and/or singe the soul. If the Light is guided through God’s potent filter (Mary) its abundance is moderated and is guided into the soul in more tailored doses (a bit dimmed) and in a more tailored form (in many different colors), in order for the soul to be able to bloom carefully and gradually.

This way there can be no such thing as competition between Jesus and Mary, on the contrary: Divine Life is the state of absolutely perfect bloom in the soul’s life and represents the fullness of the Christ. Mary is the Filter provided for by God to help every willing soul take in the fullness of God’s Works in such a way as to enable the soul to 'digest' them better, to help with the processing of these Works inside the soul, and to help bring them to bloom, all of this according to the personal dispositions and experiences and the specific developments inside the soul. Jesus therefore embodies absolute Divine perfection, Mary has gotten to partake in this very perfection to the highest extent possible for a created soul, and the essence of Her mission consists therein that, on the basis of Her fullness of grace and Her mystical unity of Hearts with Christ, combined with Her human nature, She was called upon to provide an unparalleled assistance to human souls as to making God’s Works flourish in them.

This is why the highest possible tribute to Mary is an absolute necessity. Every act of worship towards God is incomplete as long as His most sublime Work of Wonder (Mary) is not receiving the highest tribute. This tribute only exists in the true sense of the word to the extent to which a soul truly follows Mary, not only by words but in all aspects of her behaviour and in all her deepest inner dispositions.

10. The desert in the soul

Every soul is like a garden containing the seeds of true Love. God entrusts the soil of every such garden with these seeds because true Love is the essence of all Life. In order to be able to accomplish her mission in life as a junction in the network of creation the human soul must constantly make true Love, which God keeps sending through the entire network, bloom in her own spiritual garden and in the meantime keep forwarding it towards all living beings she encounters. The seeds of true Love are to flourish into flowers inside the soul, these flowers symbolizing the degree of her sanctity. All seeds left unripe (i.e.: situations and encounters during which the soul has failed to allow true Love to function as the main driving force of her behaviour and her inner dispositions) are to be brought to bloom in purgatory, for the soul will only be able to enter into Heaven to the extent to which she has turned into a paradise of flowers.

A soul that allows the seeds of true Love to decay by any lack of whole-hearted willingness to practice self-denying, unconditional Love in all details of her life on earth will not even in purgatory be able to bloom: She has allowed herself to turn into a desert while still living on earth. This soul is condemning herself for all eternity, for her life on earth ends without her having preserved any potential to bloom.

How does a soul turn into a desert? The Mistress of all souls once availed Herself of the following image: If the soil of a soul fails to absorb the water of grace and at the same time opens up unrestrainedly to the burning rays of the blazing sun of temptation, it gets increasingly dry. Everything God entrusted to this soil in the field of talents, gifts and capacities, including the germ of sanctity, loses its potential to germinate, and the soil will become completely unfruitful. All life will leave the soil, and it will attract nothing but the serpents of sin and the scorpions of vice, all laden with deadly poison. The Heavenly Queen concluded this image by the significant words: "Do understand this correctly, this image expresses the soul’s suicide". In this reflexion, too, She stresses the central role played by true Love in all life, including the inner bloom of spiritual life.

The destination of every human soul’s journey through life lies in the Heart of God, which is both the Source and the Destination of all life and of true Love. Every journey through life which is not in all of its elements, components and goals oriented towards this Destination will remain unaccomplished, i.e. unfulfilled within the limits of the lifetime allotted by God to the soul. A human soul is only compatible with Eternal Life in the Paradise of God’s Kingdom of the Heavens to the extent to which she is herself a bearer of a paradise of ripened seeds of true Love. Every instance of disregarding, denying or disrupting true Love turns the soul into a desert, a place from which true Life, Divine Life, is dispelled.

11. The tree and its fruits

Jesus said in the Gospel that a good tree will not yield bad fruits and a bad tree will not yield good fruits, and that the tree is known by its fruits. The Heavenly Mistress once elaborated on this as follows.

In God’s creation all elements as well as all interaction among these elements are by nature governed by Divine Intelligence. Hence as long as an element of creation is living in perfect harmony with Divine Law it is likely to act and yield exactly in accordance with God’s expectations and with the goals He pursued with it. This is why, as long as God’s Law gets the opportunity to produce its effects unrestrainedly, a healthy tree will produce only good fruits. Matters are different, however, if we are dealing with the 'trees' and 'fruits' that are human souls:

God gave the human soul a free will. It is her own free choice whether she lives, acts, thinks, feels and wishes in accordance with His expectations or not. We might consider God as being a tree, and all human souls as being fruits which must remain connected with the nourishment they can derive from this tree’s stem so as to be able to ripen. The sap running through the Divine tree cannot but yield perfect nourishment. Nevertheless some fruits (i.e. human souls) can, on account of their faculty of making free choices, tear themselves loose from the Divine tree and thus fall off the tree, or wither, or get sick in any number of ways. However, this does not at all mean the Divine tree would not be a good tree. Man should under no circumstances condemn God on account of the fact countless human souls have turned rotten by their own doing.

Similarly the Queen of Heaven warns about 'sentencing' souls or their works on account of the fact bad fruits, too, can be associated with them: It is possible for a human soul to nourish many others with a sap filled with sanctity, Light and Love and nevertheless to find in her closest surroundings, even in her alleged 'following', fruits that are rotten. In that case the tree is good, yet some fruits have made themselves sick through any wrong use of their free will.

Is the Gospel word about the tree and its fruits incorrect then? By no means. However, the Mother of God points to the fact this word should be considered more in-depth. A soul can perform Heavenly works and yet yield bad fruits due to the fact some souls in her surroundings do not make good use of their free will. Actually this soul is not producing bad fruits herself, it is the fruits that make themselves turn bad. These 'bad fruits' are there alright, but what man does not see is the tremendous struggle between the Light and the darkness, which is bound to break loose wherever a human soul is performing Heavenly Works: In her surroundings the evil one will inevitably rise in an attempt to break, harm and poison these Heavenly Works and to discredit the source from which they are proceeding. Moreover a human soul that is performing Heavenly Works will produce much Light which nobody sees and which will spread through the network of God’s creation inconspicuously. Her good fruits will therefore largely remain invisible, and this will be all the more so as the soul is doing these good works and living from dispositions of a heart filled with Light and Love, and does not display her true nature and works nor prides herself of them for everybody to see and hear.

As to the tree that is called 'human soul' nobody but God Himself is able to judge the true nature of the tree and its fruits. The Mistress of all souls points out that the bad fruits which may be associated with the tree of a soul that yields only Light and Love, have actually never really been connected with this tree: They have merely given the impression they belonged to this tree, and often did so with an intention of causing this tree harm. This is why in the world of human souls the presence of a lot of bad fruits often rather indicates the presence of a tree that is playing an important role for the fulfilment of God’s Works and Plans.

12. How come all good things meet with such fierce opposition?

The Mistress of all souls once said: "Satan spares no effort to destroy a blooming flower or at least to thwart its bloom. Every soul that dedicates herself to fighting persistently in favour of the Light and against the darkness will harvest storm after storm. The darkness will leave no stone unturned to discourage such a soul, to undermine her faith and confidence, and to make her doubt whether she has really taken sides with the right master or mistress. Harvesting opposition does by no means always prove the soul is doing the wrong thing. On the contrary, opposition quite often reveals that Satan feels his plans are being jeopardized. As soon as he experiences this to be happening or he even so much as merely expects or fears that the accomplishment of his plans is endangered, he will start looking with determination for souls who prove willing to do his works for him. It is such souls who do not shirk from branding Heavenly teachings and Works as heretical without dwelling upon their own motives for ding so or without even caring about motives at all. The darkness is allergic to the Light, for the Light is Light because it is laden with Divine Love, and Divine Love is the essence of all Life and therefore the archenemy of the darkness, which embodies eternal death. This is why a soul who tries to spread Love will often harvest a lot more hostility than Love in return".

In the soul who makes herself poor in worldly impressions and interests Mary will triumph to the fullest, and She will guide this soul towards the victory over herself. The Queen of Heaven Herself is predestined to gain the final victory over all darkness. She wants to see every soul who is willing to really live as Her servant to be poor in worldly interests, in order that She may be able to let this soul partake in Her victory. Mary was the major example of the human soul who defeats herself, i.e. who gains the victory over any worldly influence inside herself so as to live in perfect accordance with God’s expectations in her entire behaviour, in all of her thoughts, feelings and aspirations. Through this disposition, in which She persevered for the entire duration of Her life, She kept the darkness totally in Her power: In no respect and at not one single point of time did Satan ever manage to deploy Her for the accomplishment of his plans and works, for She did not want to turn away from God’s paths. This is also why She never allowed worldly influences and interests to give direction to Her life and Her inner dispositions. She controlled these influences totally by not wanting to allow influences besides those which proceeded from God Himself.

This is what God expects of every soul. Therefore the perfect following of Mary is by no means a heresy, quite on the contrary: It is a perfect path towards the full bloom of the soul in the image of God. Not one single created soul was ever more deeply united with the Heart of the Christ than Maria.

There are forces which brand the theses distributed by the Maria Domina Animarum Work as heretic, especially the ones about the unique sublimity of Mary, on account of the fact these theses call upon the souls to practice a perfect following of Mary. Such forces are not inspired by God, they are inspired by Satan himself, who considers the perfect following of Mary to be a major menace. The soul who dedicates her entire life to trying to achieve a perfect following of Mary is actually aspiring for a complete victory over all darkness she may carry inside herself and/or which threatens her inner bloom. The soul who manages to defeat her own darkness makes an essential contribution to the final victory of God’s Light over the darkness. Let us reflect upon the most expressive image depicting the Holy Virgin with the serpent underneath Her foot: She has got the darkness totally in Her power for all times, and if She is enabled to rule the inner dispositions of a soul the latter will also be able to defeat the darkness herself.

The Queen of Heaven once pointed out that Satan fears every glorification and following of Her sublimity possibly even more than He fears every tribute to God’s glory, due to the fact he regards Mary as the living proof for the fact a created human soul is indeed able to be free, and remain free, of darkness, and that he therefore goes to the utmost to prevent human souls from really assimilating this truth and living accordingly. Here lies the indirect power of the Mistress of all souls: the power She is able to wield over Satan through the following She harvests in loyal souls who are consecrated to Her totally.

Let us behold the unparalleled significance of the Science of Divine Life, the whole of the teachings given by Mary in Her capacity as Mistress of all souls: It consists of a seamless and consistent system of which all elements are interconnected among each other and in which no contradictions and no false conclusions can be discovered. The souls who are sufficiently pure at heart will understand this sooner or later, the other ones are prevented by the evil one from seeing or understanding it and some will keep finding pseudo arguments which, as they see it, seemingly justify their branding these unique theses as heretic. The evil one regards the Science of Divine Life as very dangerous, for he has understood all too well that a widely spread belief in the theses inspired by the Mistress of all souls would mean the end of his reign. This is exactly what the Mistress of all souls once predicted: "As soon as truly large numbers of souls were to whole-heartedly accept and unconditionally live by the theses contained in the Science of Divine Life Satan’s reign on earth would collapse once and for all". The souls who allow themselves to be used by him to make Heavenly Works seem untrustworthy and to make fellow people’s faith and trust sway are actually helping to preserve the power of the darkness and to postpone the final victory of the Light and Love, and preventing the happiness of a great many fellow people – as well as their own happiness! – from blooming.

13. About guidance from Heaven

The soul who surrenders totally to Mary can receive the latter’s thorough guidance in her heart. One should not picture guidance by the Holy Virgin as an act through which Mary would dictate the way the soul has to go or the decisions the soul has to make, thus making the soul follow Her submissively and without a will of her own. Guidance from Heaven is the process through which God fathoms a human heart in search of the soul’s willingness to collaborate voluntarily and whole-heartedly towards the accomplishment of His Works and Plans, and reacts to every sign of openness by granting targeted inspirations which bear the potential to enable the soul, to the extent of her acting, thinking, feeling and aspiring in accordance with these inspirations, to bring her life completely in line with God’s expectations and wishes, so that she truly lives her life with God. For a soul who has consecrated herself totally to the Holy Virgin and who actually practices this consecration in all details of her life the guidance from Heaven will mainly consist of inspirations through which Mary will try to enhance the fruitfulness of the consecrated soul’s life.

The soul who tries to practice her consecration and service to the Queen of Heaven in every detail of her daily life opens up her heart to such a degree that Mary is enabled to show her the ways that are the most fruitful for her spiritual bloom, provided the soul collaborates actively in the process. The ways shown by the Holy Virgin do not display noticeably blooming flowers but celestial seeds that are still hidden in the soil. The soul has to make the guidance from Heaven fruitful herself, by proceeding as follows:

  1. It is up to her whether she will travel on the ways shown to her, or not. This choice expresses the free will, which is never influenced by the Mother of God (if She should do so, She would rob the soul of any possible merits). As the 'right' ways do not display any visible floral splendour the soul is not influenced in her choice in favour of these ways instead of any others. She makes this choice – thereby testifying of her docility – not based on a seeming attractiveness (the power of seduction!) of the way in her eyes, but because of the feeling deep down that this choice holds the greatest promise for her spiritual salvation.
  2. She has to fertilize and water the seeds in the soil of any way she has chosen, by bearing all trials she encounters in a way which is fruitful for God’s Works, i.e. in full acceptance, surrender and self-denying Love and with her heart set undividedly on making her contributions to the completion of her life-long mission at the service of God’s Works and Plans.

Guidance from Heaven will never relieve the soul of her mission to decide, at every junction on her path through life, on the direction in which she is going to continue her journey. At every point of time, in all situations and under any circumstances God wants to be able to determine in an unambiguous way to what extent the soul is voluntarily, spontaneously, whole-heartedly, unconditionally and unselfishly tuning in to His heart and is making the nearly uninterrupted choices on her path through life in compliance with her Creator’s expectations and wishes. It is God’s desire that every human soul might accumulate the merits which, by virtue of the Law of Divine Justice, would justify her entering the Kingdom of Eternal Bliss. Whenever God (or Mary by Divine proxy) would not merely inspire the soul innerly to opt for certain ways but would actually push the soul towards her choosing specific ways the soul would lose an opportunity to prove to her Creator that she wants to merge her will with His Will spontaneously, without being compelled to do so. She would then be deprived of an opportunity to gain merit. Celestial guidance in the form of gentle inspirations which respect the soul’s free choices is therefore the highest form of God’s Love towards His creature: In so doing He grants the creature chances to be able to live forever in the infinite delights of Eternal Love.

14. About true and false consecration to the Mother of God

Through the years the Queen of Heaven has been teaching many things concerning total consecration to Her and the extent to which the soul herself determines the concrete value her consecration to the Mother of God is going to develop within the framework of God’s Works. A wonderful image to illustrate this was once given by the Queen of Heaven Herself:

"To a soul who surrenders to Me totally, undividedly and unconditionally I truly am the Queen and Mistress of her entire being and her entire life. Through her attitude of leading a life of true following of Me in all elements of her behaviour and of her inner dispositions her being and her life turn into a palace she builds for her Queen and Mistress.

To this soul I am in the actual sense of the word the Queen and Mistress: In her life I am the factual Ruler, and in the eyes of God the Daughter of His predilection has been presented by this soul a palace befitting the dignity He Himself provided for Her even before the Incarnation of His Divine Son, the dignity as a Golden Tabernacle, a living palace for Divinity Itself.

n the other hand, a soul who seemingly, i.e. only in words, consecrates herself to Me yet does not really practice this consecration in all details of her life is building Me a ramshackle house which she covers with a front made of the would-be gold of her own fantasies and imagination.

To this soul I am not really the Mistress in her life, yet a Queen in name only, a sign of hope of whom she expects a token of power to be set in the hour when judgment will be passed on her life, so as to convince God that she has built Me a palace.

However, do see the vast difference: The soul who truly accepts Me and treats Me as her Queen and Mistress builds Me a palace with the bricks of her own efforts to sanctify herself and the cement of her free will, which she puts at My service undividedly under all circumstances of her life. At the centre of this palace I will be sitting on a golden throne, from which I will proclaim the Law of God Himself using the ink of the true unselfish Love practiced by the soul. This Law will be, and remain, the only guiding thread for the soul’s life.

On the other hand, the soul who fails to copy My dispositions lacks the bricks of sanctification and the cement of a free will which has sincerely opted in favour of God’s Works. In this soul I am not allowed to live and reign every moment of the day, for she fails to create within herself the shrine God considers to be compatible with the immaculate nature of His chosen Daughter. Do understand this correctly, I am certainly able to reign every soul even from a ruin, yet for this gracious power to be deployed God requests the soul to provide an unambiguous sign of a deliberate and persistent choice in favour of Divine Life and for a life-long impeccable surrender to Me, who was given to the souls as the Golden gate to the Heart of Christ.

The soul who is willing to be a palace for Me is actually going to turn into a palace which will stand for all eternity. In the hour when judgment will be passed on this soul’s life God will find in her His Royal Daughter, sitting on the throne at the centre of a palace made of merits".

15. Man’s free will as oil

God is omnipotent. In spite of this He prefers to complete His Works and Plans through human souls. The reason lies in the fact God wants to be convinced that the things He wishes to accomplish in His creation are desired by man as well.

The Mistress of all souls keeps emphasizing the fact the way a soul makes use of her free will is decisive for the extent to which this soul will blossom and will be fruitful as a tool for the accomplishment of God’s Works and Plans. Through the way in which a human soul uses her free will she shows to God to what extent her wishes are actually consistent with His own wishes. Ultimately the perfect merger of a soul’s free will with God’s Will is the factor determining how close the soul comes to the ideal of man being the image of God.

All Works and Plans of God are completely geared to making His perfect Love bloom in creation. This is why a human soul can only be fruitful as a tool for the accomplishment of God’s Works and Plans to the extent she is a channel that is able to help guarantee a flawless flow of true Love through creation. This is the actual mission of every human soul in life, a mission which she is able to fulfil only to the extent she really wants to do so. In this context the Mistress of all souls once said:

"In the human soul the fire of true Love must burn. The oil made to keep this fire burning is the orientation of the free will towards the accomplishment of God’s Plans and Works. As soon as the supply of this oil towards the flame is cut off, the fire will become smaller and may at some point of time extinguish due to lack of fuel. Many souls do not spread the light and heat of the fire of true Love because their free will is not focused on God’s goals but on their own. In these souls the fire of true Love is not nourished from their own free will.

The soul can rekindle the fire any time, by diverting her free will persistently and with determination away from herself and focusing it on God. Every moment during which the fire of self-denying Love does not burn or burns only minimally it bears testimony to God for the fact the soul is not moved by a sufficiently great desire to keep her heart merged with the Heart of her God.

Indeed the fire in a human soul is based totally on a disposition of self-denial. This is why the latter disposition is a bearer of the light and heat which enable her to make the Presence of her Maker felt by the fellow creatures which she encounters. As a matter of fact self-denial is nothing other than the disposition from which the soul keeps putting her own will at the service of the well-being of all her fellow creatures as well as of the completion of the Works and Plans of God Himself".

16. About persecution in our days

Quite a few inaccurate ideas are circulating among the Christians as to certain notions. One example is the notion of 'persecution', about which the Mistress of all souls once spoke the following words, which She now allows to be published by way of a brief teaching:

"Christian thinking embodies God’s only full Truth. This makes every true Christian a predilected target for Satan for the accomplishment of his works. Being a target for the works of Satan is what we refer to as persecution.

Many modern Christians think of 'persecution' very generally as being actions like those which were once executed in an organized and politically regulated form by organizations such as – to name but a few of the most generally known ones – the Gestapo in Nazi Germany, the KGB in the former Soviet Union and the Stasi in the former German Democratic Republic. In truth I tell you that in this day and age Satan accomplishes his works of darkness for the persecution of heartfelt Christians in very subtle ways, not in the first place through politically regulated organizations but on a large scale through individuals, often from unexpected angles and most secretly, i.e. through manipulations and dark thoughts, feelings and desires the evil one manages to arouse in individuals who, preferably, are themselves so-called Christians, consider themselves to be Christians or create the impression they are Christians, and who have made themselves receptive to his inspirations by harbouring feelings of dissatisfaction, jealousy and resentment on account of the fact that certain expectations they harboured, or keep treasuring, regarding their personal life were never satisfied.

In these Last Times the true ardent Christian’s greatest enemies are not certain identifiable political organizations, but the dark dispositions in the hearts of individuals who are not themselves ready and willing to adopt the dispositions of genuine Christianity as motives ruling their own lives, in the first place those of self-denial, true Love towards all of creation and towards God Himself and His Works and Plans, and of whole-heartedly accepting all trials of life and making them fruitful for God, and who do not understand the actual purpose and only meaning, vocation and mission of their own lives on earth. To such souls every soul who sincerely practices the dispositions inherent to being a true Christian in all situations of life is a person to take offence at, a living sign of warning that wakes up their conscience with respect to their own lack of sincere self-denying dedication for the benefit of God’s Works, and therefore an enemy. This is why they will easily envelop every true Christian in the darkness from their own hearts, harbouring ill feelings towards him or her. This is persecution in the true spiritual sense of the word.

This is how far Satan’s irony goes: In souls who regard themselves as Christians without actually living and feeling in accordance with true Christian views he looks for a fertile soil that appears to be receptive to his injections of darkness, in order that these souls might preferably turn this darkness against the real Christians so as to weaken their Light and fire, and thus tries to accomplish his highly favoured goal: that Christianity should destroy itself from the inside out".

17. The house front as smokescreen

The Queen of Heaven points out there are souls who keep harbouring inside their hearts dispositions of darkness (resentment, dissatisfaction, envy, jealousy, irreconcilability etc.) yet keep deceiving their fellow persons, and thereby also themselves, as to their real nature. Such souls can be compared with a house of which the front is constantly adorned in attempts to make it look attractive on the outside.

However, as soon as a fellow person goes through such a soul’s front door – i.e. as soon as this fellow person gets to actually know this soul the way she really is – he finds out right away that beyond this house front there is not even an 'inside': Beyond the house front the visitor finds endless sands, with a burning sun which parches the visitor in no time, with snakes and scorpions which start attacking the visitor and biting him, injecting him with their venom, and with blowing sand burning in the visitor’s eyes. The soul who is genuinely focused on God’s Light and Love cannot help feeling her eyes must be seriously ill, for that all of this simply cannot be true, as she has not been seeing anything but an attractive house front.

The Mistress of all souls continues: "Such a soul lives in a world of make-believe which is not in accordance with God’s Eternal Law. However, a desert which is dead set on remaining a desert will never hold on to even one single drop of water of Divine Life so as to enable even one single small blade of grass to rise from the sand. A soul who is intent on making her fellow person believe she is a beautifully furnished house will focus all of her efforts on adorning her house front, because the latter is what everyone can see, a house front of which it will one day become clear it is not even built with bricks but with cardboard. This is the only way she may manage to hide the real emptiness of her interior for a fairly long time".

18. Suffering as a work of construction

Suffering, whether it produces its effects physically or morally, easily exposes man to an inner struggle. One day the Mistress of all souls conferred an image intended to support people during such a struggle, because for God’s Plans and Works to get accomplished it is vital that as many sufferings as possible are experienced and consecrated in the only truly fruitful way so as to be useful as tools in the battle against the darkness. Sufferings which are made useful for the accomplishment of God’s Plans and Work can indeed be fully integrated into the Mystery of Redemption: They are, in the full sense of the word, 'complements to the Works of Christ', i.e. ratifications of some element or other of these Works by a human soul’s free will. The following celestial words were spoken in this respect:

"I will give you an image that may motivate people to get through physical and/or moral sufferings more smoothly: Regard suffering as the situation in which, under My guidance and command, angels are building a road right through your body or through your heart, a road leading towards Eternal Paradise. You feel as though you were a pile of rubble inside, yet covertly celestial hands are working within you the wonder of all wonders: They are connecting you with Eternal Love".

In the past the Queen of Heaven already gave a similar image, saying that, in order to transform a house, it will in many places be necessary to do some cutting, drilling, hammering, grinding and tearing down. During the works the result will usually look very messy, and yet all of this leads towards the intended enhancement. This way every bit of physical or moral suffering can help transform the soul into a more beautiful and more valuable house.

19. The Promise of the Light

Throughout the years of Her teaching the souls the Mistress of all souls has time and again been stressing the fact Her Maria Domina Animarum Work was intended to be the Apostolate of true Love, true hope, encouragement and the fullness of Truth. In this very light, many years ago, She warned about the disposition which leads many souls, when observing the night sky, to not watch the stars and the moon but rather the dark patches of sky in-between these spots of light. All Heavenly things are Light and intend to teach souls to think differently, so as to make them look for, and find, the Light, and to look at the darkness only for the purpose of becoming aware of its existence and its strategies, in order that the latter may be fought effectively, in other words: that their effects may be rendered ineffective. This is what Jesus demonstrated to us during His Passion, by letting Himself be driven by the awareness of what was to come after it: Redemption as the sweet fruit from the bitter seed of Suffering, which, in a manner of speaking, was bound to proceed from 'the dung hill of sin'.

This was exactly the reason why the Queen of Heaven forbade Myriam from day one to pay attention to texts or accounts concerning end time prophecies and so-called messages from similar sources or to allow herself even in the least to be influenced by such accounts: They proceed from sources of darkness which circulate them with the intention of discouraging souls, unhinging them, unsettling them, and above all leading them away from God’s Love and from their own mission in life, which for every single soul is based on practising true Love in every possible respect. The Heavenly Mistress once used the following striking words to express it: "In the shadow of death all life is strangled". A heart which allows itself to be defiled by dark thoughts, predictions, expectations, and by a dark atmosphere of life in general, is inevitably allowing itself to get poisoned and is bound to gradually lose the ability to spontaneously experience the Light. A tree which has been absorbing pesticides will no longer yield fruits which convey life.

In this respect the Queen of Heaven points out that, indeed, even certain holy writings do mention dark crises to be experienced by this world, but that, first and foremost, these make reference to the dark atmosphere in the souls' inner lives as well as to the dark atmosphere and the natural catastrophes the souls are giving the world prey to because of their unbridled inclination to sin. This is exactly why the Mistress of all souls was given by God the mission to help remodel human souls into beings that are filled with Light, by teaching them how to recognize the darkness as it really is, and how to think, feel, expect and act in ways which are completely in tune with the Light. This is what the Mistress means when She says She wants to take the souls back to the state of mankind prior to the original sin: the state of the Light, the unscathed faith in God’s perfect Love and in His loving goals.

The Queen of Heaven is the perfect reflection of God’s Heart, because for the entire duration of Her life She was completely filled with the Light without any shadow and the Love without any stain. Not one single dark thought ever overshadowed Her thinking, not one single dark feeling ever opened up to Satan the door to Her Heart, not one single dark expectation ever managed to turn Her into a channel for works of darkness, not one single dark word was ever able to turn Her into a bridge of discouragement for Her fellow man. She was like pure sunlight to Her environment, and every creature which was blessed with an encounter with her somewhere on its journey through life experienced an inner rising of new Light and a rebirth of hope for – and of faith in – the certainty of the victory of God’s Love over everything. God’s omnipotence consists herein, that His absolutely perfect Love does not allow even the slightest shadow of darkness to remain active.

The Mistress of all souls wants to bring this disposition alive in every soul who is willing to follow Her, for among all created souls She is the perfect example of a Being that fully embodies God’s visions, and therefore, in a manner of speaking, the objective for every human soul to aim for: as a creature and therefore susceptible to the darkness, to defeat all darkness within oneself and to no longer be willing to give the darkness any room in one’s inner life. This is true purity, true virginity: the disposition of the heart which completely prevents any defilement and any impediment to the spontaneous effects of God’s Laws in inner life because the soul does not in the least want to deviate from God’s visions and wishes. The soul who makes all of this the basic law ruling her inner life is in any possible respect practising the conviction that only the Light holds the true power and that the darkness is a mere ghost that can unsettle the soul, to be sure, and can even howl very loudly, yet is basically devoid of matter and should therefore not get the opportunity to influence the soul’s inner life, provided the ghost’s 'victims' manage to see it exactly as it really is: as completely powerless insofar as the soul has genuinely and trustingly committed herself to experiencing and practising God’s Laws.

Maria Domina Animarum was called upon to awaken this disposition in as many souls as possible, because only genuinely experienced and practised thinking, feeling, believing and aspiring in an atmosphere of stainless light will create the conditions God needs in order to be enabled to really avail Himself of mankind for the accomplishment of His Plans on earth. The outcome God is so ardently longing for and which He also promised – provided He can find the right disposition and an ardent collaboration among the souls – will be the final rising of the Light in the form of the establishment of God’s Kingdom of perfect Love and perfect Peace among all creatures, a state of life which will be the final and perfect crown on the Christ’s Works of Redemption and which will once and for all render all works of darkness and the seed they have been casting into the souls ineffective.

Maria Domina Animarum is Mary’s Work of encouragement, because encouragement embodies true faith in God and in the perfect nature of His Love for the souls' true salvation. For the souls to be really able to contribute to the establishment of God’s Kingdom on earth they need to be able to fight with the strength derived from celestial encouragement, in the conviction that, against all odds, the darkness never has the final say. A soldier who goes on the assumption the enemy is going to win the war will in no way be able to morally survive the hardships and dangers of constant fire at the front. At some point or other he is going to fall prey to dark thoughts and begin to regard the battle as pointless, as a consequence of which he will either surrender to the enemy or in some way or another retreat from the battle and therefore no longer be regarded as a useful and battle ready tool.

The lesson is quite obvious: The soul who will surrender to the Mistress of all souls, not haphazardly as she sees fit but in the form of a regular unshakeable attitude towards life, will not allow herself to be distracted by any dark accounts and expectations, for she cultivates and experiences a rock solid faith in the God-given power her Heavenly Mistress is invested with, as she is convinced that God’s Promise by virtue of which the Woman is going to crush all works of the darkness and will thereby allow the Works of the Christ to shine in their fullness, will definitely be fulfilled. The soul who has really understood the real purpose of the Maria Domina Animarum Work recognizes in this Work the prefiguration of the fulfilment of this Promise and knows that all dark thoughts and expectations expressed in these times are mere attempts made by Satan to tear the souls loose from true faith and thereby eliminate them as soldiers for true Light.

This is how Satan is eroding Christian faith as a whole and undermining a Work God created through the Queen of Heaven – the Woman of the Last Times – for the purpose of making His Promise a reality. Our Work’s vocation lies precisely herein that we are invited to help prepare the fulfilment of the Great Promise, and we can only do so in accordance with God’s expectations and goals to the extent to which we become living embodiments of His dispositions – viz. the fullness of Love and therefore the fullness of the Light. Whoever wishes to harvest the Light must keep their seed free from darkness. After the Redemptive Works wrought by the Christ the establishment of God’s Kingdom on earth is God’s greatest gift to the souls of good will. This establishment is truly the continuation and crowning of those former Works, and this unequivocally confirms that God (the Light, i.e. Love and true Life) and not Satan (the darkness, i.e. fear, destruction and death) is the true Holder of the power in all creation.

20. About Divine Mercy

By committing the original sin, the first violation against God’s Law, the first pair of human souls blocked the access to Eternal Life in celestial Bliss to all mankind, in that this violation robbed the human soul of the sanctity which was to guarantee the access to Eternal Bliss after life on earth. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was sent into the world for the purpose of restoring the access to Eternal Bliss through an all-embracing physical and emotional Suffering, based on a Divine Decree which had provided for suffering in man’s physical nature to be invested with the power of Redemption insofar as this suffering is borne in perfect self-denying Love and with the explicit desire that it might be transformed into Light that is able to render works of darkness ineffective. The Christ met these conditions to an absolutely perfect extent.

With Jesus Christ’s Sufferings and death on the Cross a new covenant between God and the souls was sealed. This new covenant was to be ruled through Divine Mercy, the capacity through which God is able to forgive violations against His Law instead of repaying them right away with the fullness of His Justice. This is a tremendous concession on God’s part. However, the Mistress of all souls pointed out emphatically that this golden gift does have a price, which many souls tend to overlook. One day She pointed out that four basic conditions must be met for a soul to be able to benefit from Divine Mercy:

1. The soul must merge her will with God’s Will. This means, among other things, that the soul should unconditionally accept all trials of her life and should not be driven by any inclination to cast off all daily crosses. A soul who does cast off her crosses is not merged with Christ and is therefore not useful as a tool for the accomplishment of God’s Works.

2. The soul must, in all aspects of her life, practise true Love towards God and all her fellow creatures. A soul that causes harm to fellow creatures in any way whatsoever, even merely due to negative feelings she harbours towards them, prevents Divine Mercy from producing its effects in her own life.

3. The soul must aim at achieving a spotless purity. Every negative or dark disposition in a soul’s inner life serves the plans and works of the darkness and, in a manner of speaking, casts dark clouds between the Light from the crucified Christ and creation.

4. The soul must be sincerely willing to forgive. Every lack of willingness to forgive and to reconcile, every bit of resentment the soul clings to and any feeling of vengefulness rules out any effects of Divine Mercy in the soul’s own life, for God cannot extend forgiveness to a soul who is not willing to forgive her fellow person.

In a letter of reply which was never published the Mistress of all souls offered the following extension to the above thesis:

Divine Mercy produces its effects in souls who genuinely try to do only the right thing and who, aiming at that goal, keep their hearts focused on nothing but sincere, self-denying Love. Whoever sows nothing but true Love will harvest Christ’s true Peace. Ever since the establishment of the new covenant with the redemptive death of the Christ on the Cross God has more than ever been God of Mercy. This should in no way be regarded as an invitation to the souls not to work on themselves meticulously, trusting that God is going to forgive everything automatically anyway. This attitude is tantamount to pure selfishness. A soul who truly lives on the basis of self-denying Love will aim at achieving an ever growing likeness to God’s Heart.

A perfect likeness to God’s Heart would mean the soul no longer commits even the slightest violation against absolutely perfect Love. No human soul is able to do this, except the Holy Virgin, who for the entire duration of Her life as a human soul did not even for one single moment neglect to abide by God’s Law in absolute perfection and in perfect self-denial, both towards God Himself and towards all Her fellow creatures.

A soul who, in all sincerity, in profound remorse and in an all-pervasive desire to practise nothing but true Love, even if she does not seem to gain anything out of it for herself, reaches for the ideal of a perfect unity with God’s Heart, will experience God’s Mercy if she stumbles nevertheless. Divine Mercy produces its effects all the more in a soul who, in all her actions, in all her thoughts, feelings and desires, is committed to practise the greatest possible self-denying Love sincerely, spontaneously and whole-heartedly. The soul who fails to practise such Love and nevertheless expects to benefit from God’s Mercy is selfish and therefore cuts herself loose from grace. God cannot extend credits to a soul who lives the darkness if the latter does not proceed from any weakness, inability or situation beyond her will but from a heart which is not really motivated to do, to think, to feel or to desire what is right.

Basically Divine Mercy is the capacity which leads God to meet souls to such an extent as to enable them, in spite of their weaknesses, to gain the greatest possible merits provided they are willing to dedicate themselves actively and lovingly to rising above their weaknesses with God’s help, in other words provided they actually give evidence of their willingness to go to any length to do His Will. This means that Divine Mercy is indeed not an automatic process – as certain 'modern' Christians like to believe –, yet is unlocked only by the dispositions of a human soul who voluntarily focuses on God’s Plans and is propelled by the desire to contribute to their getting accomplished.

It is absolutely necessary, thus the Queen of Heaven, that the soul should be aware of all this, for this awareness is the only guarantee Satan will be denied the opportunity to lure a soul into the false sense of security that God’s infinite Mercy is bound to save her automatically. The Mistress of all souls therefore stresses: "If Divine Mercy should automatically forgive everything God would actually be handing His creation over to Satan just like that, for the latter would then be given the opportunity to tempt souls into filling their lives unscrupulously with works of darkness, believing that God will nevertheless reward them with Eternal Bliss".

The soul who lives on the assumption that Divine Mercy is tantamount to an automatic forgiveness of all violations, regardless how dark her inner dispositions may be, gives evidence of her not having understood the mission every soul is sent into the world with, viz. the mission to lead a life which, in every possible aspect and at any point of time, is focused on serving the accomplishment of God’s Works by practising self-denying Love towards all her fellow creatures to the utmost. By trusting in automatically obtaining forgiveness for all her own violations the soul shows to God that she is not living to serve Him but to serve herself, and that she lets herself be ruled by the assumption she is going to be offered Heavenly Bliss without giving anything in return to God, to His creation and to all His Works and Plans. A soul who trusts in God’s Mercy without considering the fact that Divine Justice will inevitably and simultaneously keep producing effects of its own has not understood God’s eventual objectives and goals regarding His creation, with the Law of true Love and with the establishment of His Kingdom on earth.

21. Light and darkness

The Queen of Heaven once showed the image of a man entering a house he is not familiar with. The inside of the house is pitch-dark. Due to the fact he does not know how the house is furnished he must move very carefully and slowly so as to avoid bumping into anything, and it takes quite a while for him to get any idea on how the interior of the house is organized.

The Mother of God said:

"Through this comparison I am showing you the difference between, on the one hand, a soul who lives in lies, cheating and deceiving both her fellow person and herself, and on the other hand the interaction with a sincere, honest and open soul. The first soul is living in darkness. Her real nature is often veiled and enigmatic to her fellow person, and in many cases she even knowingly keeps trying to hide her true nature from her fellow person. She hardly even knows herself, and that which does reach her awareness is very easily blocked out because she will be inclined to maintain a self-image that seems to tell her she is perfectly all right. To the extent the darkness gets the opportunity to affect her, this soul will even be contaminated by feelings of being better than her fellow people, so that she gets convinced her self-image is the only real thing and that which any fellow person thinks about her is totally wrong and does her an injustice.

Nevertheless her fellow person will (sometimes only temporarily, often for a rather long time) tend to see her as a lot more beautiful or better than she actually is, due to the fact her attitude is geared to deceiving and to the fact she is even very convincing in living as though she really were very pure and highly developed spiritually.

However, the only thing her fellow person sees for sure in this soul is a big front. The inside – this soul’s real inner dispositions – is never displayed in its true nature, so that her fellow person gets the feeling of not being able to move freely when dealing with this soul. Therefore she is like a house which is pitch-dark inside.

The second soul – the one that bears a resemblance to a brightly illuminated house – presents herself the way she really is, because she does not want to hide anything and is therefore open, sincere and honest. She also acknowledges her own faults and shortcomings in all honesty, and is inclined to make genuine efforts to keep improving and particularly not harm any fellow creature by her faults. Her fellow person knows what she is really like, hence all communication and interaction with her can run smoothly.

Blessed is the soul who presents herself to her fellow person the way she really is, and who also sees herself that way in all honesty and sincerity. This is what it takes for a soul to fully bloom and to remain completely open to everything Divine Providence will be trying to teach her about herself in order to enable her to find a sincere inner Peace. The soul, however, who remains darkened inside, does not allow any sunbeams of Divine Life to enter into her inner being either. Hence she will surely wither away and fall prey to self-destructive dispositions such as lasting dissatisfaction, jealousy, envy and even a constant longing for her fellow creatures to become victims of setbacks and bad luck. Her dark inner life makes her utterly suitable for being ruled by the forces of darkness in her entire behaviour and all her feelings, thoughts and desires, so that she will be inclined to spare no efforts to compensate her own inner darkness by – and to hide it from others behind – dogged attempts to come across as perfect or at the very least as very highly developed in Love".

22. A basic spiritual Law

One day the Mistress of all souls spoke the following words:

"See, I will give you a basic spiritual Law, which may help souls gain a more profound understanding of all aspects of life:

Everything which proceeds from God is a carrier of Light and warmth, in other words of perfect Truth and perfect Love.

Everything which proceeds from Satan is a carrier of darkness and cold, in other words of lie, deception, hatred, indifference and insensitivity with its many faces.

As the darkness has sworn an oath to the effect it was going to poison, render ineffective, slow down or – if at all possible – destroy all Works and Plans of God and all signs of God’s Presence and actions, and because it tries to do so through human souls, every individual soul’s life is flooded with temptations aiming at directing the soul’s free will towards serving the darkness (Satan) instead of the Light (God) in spite of the fact that rendering service to God is a natural inclination God provides every soul with, as her true overarching mission in life and the sole purpose of life on earth.

All works of the darkness are geared to disrupting, rendering ineffective and – if possible – disabling all Light and warmth in a soul’s heart and to replacing the latter by darkness and cold.

This is why a human soul’s most powerful weapon against the influences of darkness is a disposition of the heart which consists in making constant efforts to preserve the Light and warmth inside in all and any situations of life and even increasingly deepening and reinforcing them, until the soul is actually spontaneously and whole-heartedly practicing unconditional self-denying Love towards God and all her fellow creatures every moment of the day and the night, and she is serving only the immaculate fullness of the Truth in all situations of life, without any impurities in her feelings, thoughts and desires and without even the slightest inclination to give in to any insincerity, lies, deceptions, deceit, self-deception, self-delusion, self-glorification nor any lack of willingness to recognize her own faults and shortcomings, but on the contrary driven by a sincere urge to become – before God and her environment – a brilliant mirror of the Love and purity of God Himself.

The Light has yet another way of expressing itself besides the Truth: brightfulness. Many years ago already I referred to brightfulness as 'the Light of the soul'. The connection between the Truth and brightfulness may become clear from My definition of 'Truth': Truth is the entirety of rules of life which are invested with the ability to guide the soul to a complete accordance with God’s Will and His Law of Love, in order that she may be able to live up to the expectation harboured by God towards her: the expectation that she may live a life yielding the highest possible fruitfulness in contributing to the accomplishment of God’s Plan of Salvation. In proportion as a soul succeeds in making her will merge with the Will of God and therefore in more thoroughly fulfilling her true mission in life at the service of God’s Works she will witness an increase of inner Peace, Peace of heart. An increase of inner Peace is what makes true brightfulness in the heart bloom.

True brightfulness has got nothing whatsoever to do with exuberant cheerfulness, but with a deep sensation of inner tranquillity or serenity and Peace, a feeling which fills the soul with the heart-felt certainty that God is very near and that her journey through life really lies in His hands. The soul who lives for no other purpose but to serve God’s Truth is filled with His Peace because God’s Heart is rejoicing over the fruitfulness of her ways. The soul senses this as a deep and serene brightfulness which keeps surging up within her like the perfume from the Heart of her Creator. Boisterous cheerfulness is the false brightfulness which is inspired by attempts from the heart to hide inner darkness from itself. That is why this state is not an indication of anything flowing from God’s Heart into one’s own heart, but why it rather blocks out any influx of Divine Light into the heart.

This is how every heart can determine within itself to what extent it is actually fulfilling its true mission in life at God’s service or not. It is vital, however that the soul should learn how to judge herself in all honesty and that she should remain perfectly well aware of the fact that any self-deception and self-delusion is tantamount to self-elevation and that, consequently, in the hour in which God will pass judgment on her life it will be 'charged to her account' as being a service rendered to the darkness instead of to the Light. Blessed is the soul who sincerely and honestly recognizes her faults and shortcomings while still alive, for she will experience Divine Mercy, as God will judge this inclination as self-abasement and acknowledgement of her imperfection in the face of the perfect Law of God. In practicing sincere self-abasement the soul delivers evidence to God for her genuine desire to keep improving her compliance with His Basic Law, i.e. true Love".

23. The soul as a channel of Light

Every human soul is given life on earth for one purpose only: that she may play a role within the entire network of creation as a tool intended to help complete the Works which God wants to accomplish in collaboration with, and by virtue of the unambiguous consent of, the human souls. The human soul can only fulfil this mission in life to the extent to which she contributes to spreading God’s Light through the network. This is possible only if she turns her heart into a stainlessly clean mirror which reflects God’s Presence and His actions impeccably to all fellow creatures she encounters on her journey through life.

The value of a human life is determined by the quantity of Light the soul helps spread. All Light proceeds from God, but every soul is called to be a little channel through which the Light will be enabled to spread through creation. This little channel will spread more Light to the extent it maintains a purer and more intensive connection to God. The factor which keeps this Light shining is true (i.e. self-denying) Love. A soul who allows negative dispositions to enter her inner life will herself extinguish the Light she receives from God, she will grow dark herself and start spreading darkness rather than Light. Owing to the fact creatures are able to 'sense' Light as God’s Presence some souls are able to make fellow creatures feel that God is near, whereas other souls tend to generate quite opposite feelings.

Because the human soul is constantly the object of the battle between the Light and the darkness the latter spares no efforts to divert the soul from her mission in life at the service of God’s Works and to poison all of the soul’s actions and inner dispositions, in order that the latter should no longer be useful to God’s Works. The human soul has got a very efficient weapon at her disposal: surrender (i.e. total commitment), especially within the framework of total consecration to the Queen of Heaven.

To the extent the soul considers everything in her life to be opportunities through which she is best able to serve God’s Plans and Works the darkness will lose all power over her mind and her heart and the Heavenly Mistress of her journey through life – the Queen of Heaven, to whom she has surrendered herself with the fullness of her being by virtue of the sacred covenant of total consecration – will indeed be able to take the wind out of the darkness’ sails. To that end the soul has got to collaborate fully with her Heavenly Mistress, in order that the Latter might exert the fullness of Her invincible power over the darkness and the soul will, through her entire behaviour, her entire inner life and her entire journey through life, be able to become a living token of the activity of Divine Light, which, among others through an absolutely unlimited rule of the Mistress of all souls in the soul, will then be able to become her impenetrable shield.

The Heavenly Mistress most emphatically cautions against the inclination the darkness tries to infect every soul with: the inclination to allow herself to get upset or troubled by any worldly development. In these days we need only think of the threatening information concerning the spreading of the dangerous (because allegedly life-threatening) corona virus. Giving in to this inspiration basically means the soul is actually paralyzing herself in the field of a very important mission she has in her capacity as a human soul: God expects every soul to make His Presence noticeable by being a shining mirror reflecting His Light all over her surroundings. A soul who easily worries is thereby darkening the sky over her own heart, so that she becomes increasingly less useful as a mirror for God’s Light. True success, true fruitfulness of a human life can be determined according to the extent to which the fellow creatures with which she has been in contact can in some way or another get the feeling that God Himself has been passing on their path through life, for that new flowers have started growing on this path and the air over their hearts has suddenly started smelling like spring time.

Blessed is the soul about whom, in the hour when judgment is passed on her life, God will be able to say that many fellow creatures have testified about her having brought Light, Love, happiness and Peace into their lives by being who and what she is, owing to the fact her heart has reflected God’s Light and has thereby filled these fellow creatures with the heart-felt certainty that true Love is truly alive and that darkness, threats, fear and suffering disappear wherever God appears and gets the opportunity to open up His Heart freely. Indeed, the Mistress of all souls pointed out in several writings already that in the soul of every human being and in the vital principle of every animal a logbook is stored in which this creature’s entire life, all of its life experiences, feelings and contacts are registered, as well as the names of every fellow creature that has given this human being or animal Love, care, Light, Peace, or conversely hate, indifference, insensitivity, pain, harm, suffering or fear. Therefore, in the hour when judgment will be passed on your life the logbooks of every creature you ever encountered – both fellow people and animals – will testify either in your favour or against you, and help determine the mark or grade God will apply to your life as a channel of Light or of darkness.

24. Springtime in the soul

The Mistress of all souls often draws parallels between life in the soul on the one hand and nature on the other, and in so doing She demonstrates that God governs life in its various forms basically through similar laws. This need not surprise us, as life is ultimately governed and maintained by one central force: Love. True Love is the basic force of God Himself, the essence of His Being, and since all things created find their origin in His Heart all creatures are also bearers of traces of this same essential force. As to the blooming in spiritual life the Queen of Heaven refers to nature in spring:

In order to bloom, i.e. to live her 'true springtime', the human soul basically needs three things:

  1. sunshine: God’s power of Love, which is the bearer of true Life;
  2. rain: God’s graces, which come mainly in the form of all trials Divine Providence allows to touch the soul’s journey through life;
  3. wind: the Holy Spirit with all of His inspirations, which in a way similar to a breeze transfer the pollen of true fruitfulness from God’s Heart to the soul in order to fertilize her. Therefore the Holy Spirit’s actions in the soul may be regarded as constant attempts from God to conclude a wedding between His Will and Wisdom on the one hand and the soul and her free will on the other, in order that, through all reactions on the soul’s part in her entire behaviour, all her words, thoughts, feelings and all her inner dispositions in the broadest sense of the word, 'children might be conceived and given birth to'. These 'children' are understood to mean all fruits God conceives through a human soul’s full, conscious and sincere collaboration and gives birth to through this soul for the benefit of creation. This is exactly what is meant when the Mistress of all souls says that God wants to accomplish His Works and Plans through – i.e. with the collaborations of – human souls.

The three elements (sunshine, rain and wind) are not able to maintain springtime in the soul separately. Neither can two of them combined without the third one. It is really vital that all three of them should be able to produce their effects in the soul simultaneously.

Many human souls easily forget the fact they are part of creation and thereby function according to the laws governing creation. Plants and animals live according to God’s Law. Deviations can definitely be established, yet these are due to disruptions caused by the human souls' sinfulness as well as due to direct human interference: disruptions in the kingdoms of plants and animals, aggression in the animal kingdom, etcetera. Therefore the human soul is responsible for the restoration of Eternal Spring in creation. This process should begin within the human soul herself: She must return to orienting herself exclusively towards God’s Law, which is stored deep inside of her (in the germ of sanctity, which God deposits inside every human soul).

For true springtime to bloom inside the soul and the latter to be a useful tool for the establishment of Eternal Spring in creation (which, let us not forget this, is ultimately nothing other than the establishment of God’s Kingdom on earth and the beginning of the messianic era), the soul must therefore:

  • allow the sunshine of God’s Love to work fully inside of her, and pass its beams of Love on to all of her fellow creatures through her entire behaviour and all of her inner dispositions (all thoughts and feelings should be filled with unconditional, self-denying Love);
  • make the very best use of the rain of all graces, i.e.: accepting all of her trials and crosses without rebelling against them, and consecrating them whole-heartedly to God – preferably through Mary, who can add a tremendous extra value to them by clothing them in the fullness of the immaculate Love of the one and only created soul who, for the entire duration of Her life on earth, never even for one single moment gave in to any inspiration from the darkness. By carrying all trials and crosses of life in intimate unity with the Woman who has kept Satan underneath Her feet as of the hour of Her Immaculate Conception and who, in the fullness of time, is to crush his works underneath these very same feet, the soul makes the greatest possible contribution to unlocking the Christ’s Works of Redemption in the souls;
  • allow the wind from the Holy Spirit, the true animation from God’s Heart, to blow freely over the field of her spiritual abilities in order that the soul may be able to ingest the 'pollen' of this Divine animation and may also take in the oxygen her deepest spiritual abilities need to renew themselves constantly and to be able to 'breathe' freely. A soul who no longer 'breathes' freely (i.e.: who does not stay fully connected with the Holy Spirit) falls prey to the fermentation of temptations by all kinds of dark inspirations.

The Mistress of all souls refers to springtime as the season of hope, on account of the promise of all new signs of life which become noticeable in nature. This season invites the soul to shape her inner life in such a way as to allow the growth of an inner certainty that she is the bearer of Eternal Summer, which, in proportion as the soul actively practices true Love, can be transformed into the fruit of fully matured sanctity. A soul who lives true springtime is a soul who is well and truly sanctifying herself. Her journey through life ends in Eternal Summer: the bliss of a soul who has allowed the fullness of true Love to ripen inside of herself by making the Divine Laws the only purpose, driving force and goal of her life. Whoever sincerely lives true Love turns into true Love herself. The soul who deeply inhales true springtime senses it inside so deeply that Eternal Summer begins to ripen inside of her automatically: The springtime blossoms turn into summer fruits in proportion as, owing to the strictest commitment, they are protected against any unexpected attacks from winter (= the cold antipole of God’s Love).

25. About the Sacrament of Penance

In September 2016 the Mistress of all souls said: "By the Sacrament of Baptism a soul is put under the custody of the Holy Spirit. By the Sacrament of Confirmation she ratifies this consecration through a covenant she enters into with full awareness. Through every sacramental Confession this covenant is renewed. This is why this Sacrament must not be received lightly, for every repetition of the confessed transgression constitutes a formal violation of the obedience towards God’s Law, like a contract that is being broken time and again. Confession, or penance, is a Sacrament of Mercy. Be aware, however, that God reserves His Mercy for the soul who may keep stumbling every once in a while, to be sure, yet in her heart of hearts truly longs to be one with God’s Heart and His desires, and spares no effort to achieve this unity.

A Confession spoken with the primary intention of being delivered from personal debt towards God is basically a selfish act. A truly sincere and salvific Confession is spoken first and foremost for the purpose of bringing reparation and atonement for transgressions committed against God’s Law of love, and is therefore in the first place geared to making amends towards God and only secondarily to being delivered from personal debts. God’s forgiveness, and therefore the soul’s being delivered from her debts, is a gift the soul receives from God to the extent to which, in the very depth of her heart, she will actually show to God that she is suffering by the pain she has inflicted upon Him, upon His Love and upon His creatures".

In July 2017 the Queen of Heaven once again unfolded a striking image concerning Confession:

In the Sacrament of Confession the soul is invited to present Her spiritual garden to God. To the extent to which she is actually experiencing the right disposition of the heart, two things will happen:

  1. The Holy Spirit will whisper into her heart, revealing to her what ill weeds are threatening her garden, and encourage her to pull up these weeds;
  2. God will sow the seed of new celestial flowers into her garden in order for the latter to develop a new power to bloom.

The first stage will only produce its effects to the extent to which the heart is truly opened and focused on Divine Love to mature inside of it.

The second stage will only produce its effects to the extent to which the heart is truly driven by the desire to turn around altogether, so that the soil of the garden of the soul may truly be cleansed of all that has been poisoning it and has been fruitful and nourishing to the ill weeds. This second stage comprises both the soul’s will to change her inner dispositions totally and the desire to make concrete amends as well as the actual accomplishment of such amends.

Many souls mainly confess for the purpose of getting delivered from elements which might speak to their disadvantage in the hour in which judgment will be pronounced on their past life, and they fail to make the second stage fruitful through their lack of sincere desire to change, i.e. to bring their lives and all of their inner dispositions in full accordance with God’s Law of true Love. They may indeed be delivered from certain elements of ill weeds, yet nevertheless they will remain barren, for the seed that is meant to yield new flowers will not be absorbed and will not find fruitful soil to sprout.

Thus in many cases the Sacrament of penance fails to produce the fruits it is meant to produce, both for the soul herself and for the accomplishment of God’s Plan of Salvation. The soul must not forget that she not only confesses for the benefit of her own salvation, for this would be sheer selfishness; she also confesses – and this aspect is very largely overlooked, disregarded or not recognized at all – for the purpose of bringing God’s Plan of Salvation closer to its completion, both directly by replacing darkness by Light and indirectly because the soul who makes the second stage of Confession truly fruitful will, in so doing, henceforth become more fruitful as a channel allowing God’s Light and Love to flow through creation.

Confession is a great gift. Therefore it should fill the soul with joy and true hope. This hope, however, must be allowed to be substantiated by the soul’s fervently desiring to make concrete personal efforts to cleanse herself whole-heartedly, for to the extent to which the soul is purer, she will be more fruitful for the accomplishment of God’s Works and she will accomplish her true mission in life as a tool in God’s hand with greater efficiency. True purification only occurs through one single thing: through the fire of true Love for God and for all creation.

Even the Sacrament of penance will not completely purify a soul if her heart is not driven by an active, purposeful and persistent desire to rid itself of any dark inclination and disposition. Indeed, Divine Mercy only produces its full effects in a soul who totally and actively aspires to be a tool for the accomplishment of the Works of Love God is seeking to complete through every single human soul. To that end it is necessary that the heart should be filled only with dispositions of sincere self-denying Love to God and to all fellow creatures.

In order that the souls might gain an even more profound understanding the Heavenly Mistress makes reference to a thesis She brought forward in this context several years ago, in which She demonstrated that the way out of sin and into Eternal Salvation runs through an arcade built on five successive columns, the initial letters of which, together would read like an acronym 'ARCADE':

Awareness – Remorse – Confession – Amends - DEliverance

When wandering through this arcade the soul experiences an outpouring of graces of Divine Mercy, whereas a constant interaction occurs between God (intermediary and gifts from the Holy Spirit) and the soul (aspiring for a merger with Christ). As the soul reaches the consecutive columns of the arcade the force of grace gains currency inside of her and a gradually increasing share of the punishment associated with the committed sin by virtue of the irreversible Law of Divine Justice, is remitted. As soon as the punishment is completely redeemed the confessed sin becomes devoid of its effects and is no longer an obstacle for the gate to Eternal Salvation to be opened.

The remission of the punishment, however, is complete no sooner than upon reaching the fifth column, the one called 'deliverance'. This would make clear why forgiveness in Confession (the third column) is never the end, and why the soul, after having confessed, has still got an act of cleansing ahead of her if she is to satisfy Divine Justice completely.

The Heavenly Queen observes that the fourth column (amends) is not merely about an act of penance imposed by the priest on account of the sin the soul has just confessed, but that 'amends' is also understood to refer to the persistent efforts to be made by the soul to henceforth live in perfect harmony with God’s Law of true Love. This clearly demonstrates that the fifth column – deliverance – can be reached only on the proviso that the soul, after confession, spares no effort to 'change into a different person'. All aspects of spiritual growth find their deepest significance, content and completion only to the extent to which the soul fulfils the Basic Law of God – the Law of self-denying Love to God, to all of His Works and Plans and to all fellow creatures – in every possible respect and in all and any details of her behaviour and all of her inner dispositions.

26. The soul as a small factory

One day the Queen of Heaven unfolded an image which expresses the position and function of each human soul within the system of creation in a particular way:

"Every soul is like a small factory which processes raw materials for the purpose of manufacturing specific products, depending on the specific expectations harbored by God towards each individual soul. The raw materials are derived from God alone. Without these raw materials out of God’s hand the factory is entirely useless. Processing these raw materials is completely geared to yielding products which in a specific way serve the purpose of contributing to the accomplishment of God’s Works. The fuel used by the factory is Love. This also means that even the finest raw materials (after all, all of them come from God) are not even able to yield products if the factory fails to store the fuel required. This fuel, too, comes from God, yet not every soul is equally efficient in storing and/or processing this fuel.

Behold the manufacturing process, which determines the extent to which the factory of a soul takes care of its production in accordance with God’s expectations or not: God provides raw materials (graces and inspirations) and fuel (Love, carrier of all Life). The factory is under the obligation to store, process and transform all of this, in order to be able to turn out products with the potential to satisfy the needs felt by the Divine Supplier. The Supplier is simultaneously Source and Destination of all manufacturing processes. Even the finest raw materials do not get processed at all as long as the factory fails to make use of its fuel in accordance with the rules. What matters is therefore a smooth combined effect of graces + true Love, for the purpose of manufacturing products for the Kingdom of God.

Nothing of all of this originates with the soul herself, everything comes from God. To refer to the image presented before: The factory is in itself useless if no raw materials and no fuel are supplied and if, moreover, it fails to function exactly according to the rule of manufacturing required to turn out products which meet the needs. The only merits gained by the soul herself are derived from the extent to which she concretely experiences and applies true Love. In the absence of practicing pure Love the soul as a factory is even of no use at all. Without any raw materials and fuel a factory cannot be operated and will therefore not turn out any products. Its own merits lie in the way it deals with the materials it gets supplied and in the degree to which it will process these materials in the purest possible way and with a view to turning out useful finished products".

27. About the tree and its fruits

One day the Mistress of all souls privately dictated the following reply to a soul who had been wondering about the saying that a tree is known by its fruits. Now She allows Her reply to be published for the purpose of deep reflection:

"A good tree yields good fruits because it is in its nature to do so. However, this is only the case on the proviso the fruits actually derive their nourishment only from the sap produced by the tree instead of from the pesticides which try to penetrate into them through worldly dispositions, views and influences.

Yes, Jesus already said a tree is known by its fruits, yet this thesis does presuppose that God’s Laws are enabled to produce their full effects without any interference from the darkness being allowed to enter into the fruits by their own free will or, which is sometimes the case, without such interference being actually knowingly invited to enter them.

This is why a wonderful and perfectly healthy tree may very well also yield inferior fruits, for in the end the quality of the fruits depends primarily on the extent to which the fruits enable the Divine Laws of growth, bloom and ripening, and therefore Divine Intelligence, to produce their full effects without any worldly, human, i.e. dark interference distorting their full Divine power and purity.

Do understand this correctly: In the purely spiritual sense this means concretely that even the holiest soul invested with the light and the fire of the purest Love she has received from God and which she has purposely and with absolute priority been longing to make flow towards all her fellow creatures, is certainly not going to produce only sanctity, for many who seemingly follow this soul are not going to resist the fierce attempts from the darkness to use them as tools to discredit this soul, in order that the world might come to the conclusion that the tree, which has been most strictly abiding by God’s Laws, is actually a work of darkness and that, therefore, it would be better if nobody were to eat from its fruits.

Therefore, whoever wants to know the truth about the real disposition of the tree do well not to allow themselves to be led first and foremost by observations as to the disposition of the fruits, but rather to look into the tree’s sap and the quality of the soil in which it has taken root. Insofar as the tree has taken root in holy ground and only breathes the clean, oxygen-rich air from the Holy Spirit it will produce the sap that is in perfect accordance with the Plan God harbours with respect to it. Between the sap and the fruits, however, the hands, hearts and minds of humans can cause a great many things which do not proceed from God".

28. Prayer compared with a telephone call

The Mistress of all souls keeps emphasizing that many souls who are allegedly consecrated to Her fail to make their covenant of consecration fruitful due to the fact they add little or no substance to it. She refers to such a soul’s attitude as 'shallowness'. One of the clearest examples She has ever given was expressed in the following image:

"I want to draw you a clear picture which may show you why merely saying a prayer, an invocation, even an emergency outcry to God or to Me is not sufficient in itself:

The soul who just prays is like a person who calls a fellow person on the phone, requesting the latter to come and help him out urgently, yet right after ending the call sits down and just waits.

A really fruitful prayer to God or to Me is a situation you can compare with a person who calls a fellow person on the phone to request for urgent help and who, after the call, makes haste to unlock the door to make sure the person he has just called will be able to enter the house freely, and who then starts tidying up the room with a view to making the coming visitor feel comfortable, and who also makes sure he has got some food and drink to offer the visitor. Now look at the meaning of, for instance, an outcry to Me for help:

The soul calls Me on the phone, i.e. she implores My intervention.

Then she makes haste to unlock the door, i.e. she opens up her heart to Me totally, so as to enable Me to enter into her inner life without any obstacles.

Se tidies up her house, i.e. she purifies her heart and mind and her faith so as to be able to welcome Me in dignity.

Subsequently she prepares some food and drink, i.e. she sincerely asks herself how she can best satisfy my hunger and quench my thirst, and she goes to any lengths to satisfy Me completely. In very plain terms this means the soul puts her entire being at My service totally and flawlessly.

Do understand this image well. The soul who prays to Me, who cries out to Me for help or consecrates herself to Me through a prayer can only expect a fruitful visit from Me if the prayer is immediately, unhesitatingly and unconditionally followed by her total commitment to allow Me to enter into Her inner life in any possible respect, to merge with My Heart and to feed and refresh Me ardently with herself, her entire being and her entire life. A soul who confines her living together with Me to saying prayers without complementing these prayers with an active commitment to becoming truly one with Me cannot really be visited by Me, nor can she reap the fruits from the celestial treasures I long to carry to the house of every soul with such desire.

It is all a matter of adding substance, and this substance must be alive within the heart and is fathomed there by God without the slightest restriction. I repeat that God does not listen with ears, He only listens with the Heart".

29. The soul as an egg

One day the Mistress of all souls said:

"Try to image the soul as an egg. The egg yolk would be the germ of sanctity, which, in a manner of speaking, would then be the soul’s tabernacle, the sanctuary in which the Creator deposits the soul’s ability to sanctify herself, as well as the Code of Divine Law. This is why the germ of sanctity is very closely related to the soul’s conscience. The egg white surrounding the yolk represents all other spiritual faculties, from which, among others, the way in which emotions are experienced is controlled.

Behold what happens when you cook an egg: The egg white solidifies as the temperature rises under the influence of the boiling water. The solidified egg white builds a kind of protective wall all around the yolk, which in its turn gets hotter and hotter.

Do understand the picture: The germ of sanctity in the soul needs to be protected by building a solid protective wall around it, consisting of a well-balanced way of dealing with emotive experiences, an unshakable will which remains focused on the Will of God, etcetera, and this protective wall gets increasingly solid as the soul generates more heat. This heat is true self-denying Love.

The germ of sanctity must be sheltered and preserved in an undamaged condition, which can be achieved only if the soul clothes herself in an atmosphere of true Love. A soul that generates little or no self-denying Love stays cold, thus leaving the spiritual faculties vulnerable and allowing the germ of sanctity to expose itself, and even to run out, whenever the slightest setback occurs. This soul also leaves her tabernacle unprotected against any effects directed against it by the darkness. Conscience 'runs out' in its turn, too, i.e. the soul starts acting in ways as if she did not even possess a conscience. Inversely, a soul that clothes all details of her being in the atmosphere of true Love (the boiling water), protects herself against any damage caused to her germ of sanctity and to her conscience.

Reflect upon this image, and draw the right conclusions from it".

30. The soul as Jerusalem

On May 24, 2020, on the Octave of the Ascension, Jesus spoke to Myriam the following words:

JESUS: "I will now sow into your heart the following words, which I am addressing first and foremost to all Christians to serve as an urgent incentive for them to proceed to a thorough self-analysis with a view to determining to what extent they are actually making use of their Christian heritage in a worthy way.

What joy befalls Me if I get the disposal of a soul who opens herself up to Me so as to allow Me to stroll through her freely in the way I used to do in the Israel of My days as the Man-God. In that soul’s land I can cast God’s seed, I can work My boons, heal whatever is sick, even resuscitate what appears to be dead.

How terrible, however, is the shock if, upon reaching the capital in a soul’s land, i.e. the heart, I find it to be a Jerusalem full of resistance, incomprehension, disbelief, insincerity and threats, a place where, basically, I have already been sentenced and where it is only a matter of waiting for an occasion to justify My being taken prisoner and sentenced to death by indicating the seed of Truth as being the seed of ill weeds and by explaining the words from God’s Heart as lies, heresies and blasphemy.

How beautiful and attractive the capital, the heart, of many souls looks while I am approaching it from the hills outside its walls, yet how often do I soon find within its walls a brood of vipers filled with treason and darkness, a temple which, in reality, only serves the interests of the world, and hidden deeply dispositions which are clothed in garments of deception and self-deceit.

Blessed is the soul who offers herself to Me as a Bethany of refreshment, full of rose gardens of sincere Love and dispositions of sincere and deep faith, and who opens up her Jerusalem to Me in all honesty so as to enable Me to crucify all her oppressions with Me once and for all, for in this soul I will rise in the fullness of My Glory. In this soul all crosses are already bearers of the Glory of the resurrection and the Ascension like Heavenly seeds which in God’s Heart have already turned into a flowering paradise.

Do understand correctly that the Christian whose heart receives Me in a state resembling Jerusalem is not harbouring the Spirit of Christ but the spirit of Judas".

31. The soul’s coat and its buttons

In May 2020 the Queen of Heaven inspired Myriam the following words as material for profound reflection:

"In truth I disclose the spiritual reason why the apostle John was the only one of the apostles to be present on Mount Golgotha:

Holy Mass, in a way, is like a re-enactment of the Sacrifice of Redemption on Mount Golgotha’. John was the only one of the apostles who was present on Mount Golgotha. Of the twelve he was the one boosting the highest development as to all aspects of true Love. This is how God made John’s presence at the foot of the Cross into a symbol expressing the fact the fruitfulness of Holy Mass for a soul is greatly determined by the extent to which John’s dispositions get the opportunity to come alive and active within this soul.

Besides a strongly developed Love John also kept burning a tremendous fire of a sincere desire for perfection as an image of God’s Heart. This fire of desire ought to be alive in every single human soul.

Let me express it in yet other words: A soul who lives from the sincere fire of desiring to actually be a true image of God’s Heart, will attend Holy Mass in a way similar to John’s dispositions on Mount Golgotha. A soul in whom this fire is lacking will attend Holy Mass in a disposition similar to the one prevailing in those who were present on Mount Golgotha without any genuine spiritual feelings.

You must know that also Mary Magdalene was present at the foot of the Cross, even with a great fruitfulness for her soul, because also in her the fire of desiring to be a true image of God’s Heart was burning most intensely. Her sincere desire for spiritual perfection as well as her intense genuine Love for Jesus and for Me made her truly worthy to have her heart merge with the Sacrifice of Golgotha.

My Heart and the hearts of John and Mary Magdalene on Golgotha were three intense flames. In a manner of speaking they were the opposites of the three nails Jesus was attached to the Cross with. This is how God already presented an image demonstrating that all darkness will one day be fully counterbalanced: The nails of sin were, so to speak, canceled out by the three flames of Love from three human souls who, during the hours on Mount Golgotha, were fully merged with the Heart of Eternal Love, who voluntarily delivered His physical nature to the fire of Redemption.

Now reflect on all of this within the framework of Holy Mass, for you see, this is the great difference between a soul who attends Holy Mass for the purpose of glorifying God and of giving tribute to God’s Works on the one hand, and on the other a soul who attends Holy Mass on account of her fear that neglecting Holy Mass might mean for her to forfeit Eternal Salvation: The former is similar to John the apostle, filled with true Love and focused entirely on God, the latter is like a callous spectator on Golgotha, obsessed merely with securing one’s own Eternal Salvation yet lacking the true unity with the Heart of Christ.

Verily I say unto you that the soul does not deserve Eternal Salvation by merely formally attending Holy Mass for the purpose of 'fulfilling her religious duty' but only by longing for a regular merger with God’s Heart. Attending Holy Mass while being fully focused on God without even thinking for one single moment of the 'duty' one is fulfilling by attending Holy Mass, will bring the soul a very great deal more salvation than her piling up weekly Holy Masses attended on the basis of a disposition of selfishness. God judges every soul according to the extent to which she has practiced true Love. Fulfilling daily, weekly or annual religious 'duties' does not yield the soul great merits, for very often fulfilling a duty is devoid of Love but merely aims at avoiding possible punishments or at being granted rewards, and is therefore selfish.

You see, the soul must clothe herself in the coat of true Love, i.e. in self-denying Love which is only concerned with the well-being and happiness of every fellow creature and with serving God, while forgetting about herself altogether. The coat can be fastened by means of buttons. In this image the soul’s attending Holy Masses, receiving Sacraments and saying prayers would be the buttons on the coat. Now do think about it: What good will thousands of buttons do to a person who has not got a coat? Yes, countless Christians keep piling up any potential sources of grace (Holy Masses, Sacraments, prayers, pilgrimages...) yet they do not really practice true Love. These souls have not understood that these potential sources of grace must be opened up by their own doing, by practicing self-denying Love in all and any situations, events and encounters on their journey through life.

In the hour in which judgment will be passed on their life these souls appear before God, and being under the impression that they have acquired great merits, they show God the hundreds, even thousands of buttons they have been collecting. God, however, is primarily interested in the quality of the coat of Love these souls are wearing. Do realize that many pseudo Christians appear before God with a giant box filled with buttons, yet they are naked, are not wearing a coat. Do understand this image correctly: A soul who is not wearing a solid coat made of highly developed self-denying Love goes totally unprotected against the cold and rain from the countless temptations of life. Without this coat all buttons the soul has collected, no matter in what amounts, are totally worthless and useless.

The fulfilment of religious 'duties' by a soul who is weak in practicing self-denying Love towards all her fellow creatures and towards God and His Works and Plans is absolutely no guarantee for this soul ever getting access to Eternal Bliss".

32. The sun above the path through life

The Mistress of all souls gave Myriam the following image to reflect upon:

"When the sun is high in the sky you can basically feel three things:

1. warmth
2. light
3. joy in your heart

You see, God is the Sun of the soul’s deeper life. He makes the soul feel the same three things on her journey through life:

1. the warmth of His true Love.
2. the Light of true faith in the deep-rooted conviction that He is present and working, that He is the Source of the Love the soul experiences, that He is the true future, and that His Presence, His actions and His Law are one day going to make up for everything, because the darkness will die, and not even one shadow will remain wherever this Sun gets the opportunity to keep shining in full splendor high above the soul’s path through life as the force which dissipates all and any clouds.
3. the joy which pervades the heart on account of true hope, for the very core of the soul is able to sense God’s Presence and actions on her path through life and derives from these the hope for her eternal future and for the fulfilment of Divine Law in all of creation. This is how true hope becomes a source of comfort, encouragement, vitality, lust for living, a sense of security, as if the soul were a party to a celestial life insurance which is to secure her future and will one day make up for all sufferings of life.

You must know and realize that the soul is going to partake in these experiences to the extent to which she fully allows the Sun of true Life, the God of Love, faith and hope into her life, that she fully accepts His infallible Law and that she unconditionally and totally focuses her entire life on Him as her only Destination.

To the extent to which she fails to experience all of this and to focus on all of this whole-heartedly and persistently in perfect denial of herself and of the needs and expectations she thinks she has concerning her life, her Love, faith and hope will get defiled and the Divine Sun will not get the opportunity to give meaning to the inevitable clouds over her path, nor to make them dissipate. She will therefore never experience the joy of seeing her coldest hours being warmed up, of seeing her clouds being pierced by rays of sunlight, of seeing the rainbow after the rain has been falling on her path, for she will rather experience the darkness, the cold and the drought than the Light, the warmth and the joy".

33. The feminine spiritual nature of the soul

One day Myriam asked the Heavenly Mistress why, when talking about the human soul, She always does so in the feminine form. The Mistress replied:

"I consider the soul to be feminine. This has not got anything to do with grammar, there is a spiritual reason:

The human soul receives God’s seed for the purpose of carrying His Works and giving birth to them for the world. This image may enable you to picture how God wants to accomplish His Works in creation through the human souls: His Will is the Divine seed, which He casts into human souls for them to carry it and to give birth to it as fruits of God’s Will through their entire behaviour, all their inner dispositions, their feelings, thoughts and aspirations.

The Creator wants to deploy every human soul as a carrier of His seed, from which the effects of the Works of His design are to be made visible to the world.

This is exactly why it is every human soul’s vocation to live as a bride of the Christ, as a receiver of His Works of Redemption and charged with the life-long mission of giving birth to these Works for all the world, i.e. of helping to open them up visibly".

34. The soul as a motor vehicle

One day the Mistress of all souls provided the following image:

Picture the soul as a motor vehicle, in which faith is the engine, free will is the steering wheel and Love is the fuel.

A soul lacking true faith in God is like a dead soul. Her engine won’t even start. Therefore she does not get anywhere on the road through life God intended her to follow.

Free will is the mechanism which determines in what direction the vehicle will move, and therefore whether the soul will reach her true destination or not, or how far she will get off track as to reaching her destination, i.e. to what extent she will be doing God’s Works or not.

True Love is the fuel nourishing all of the soul’s spiritual processes. A soul who fails to practice true Love does not move, by lack of nourishment for all spiritual abilities.

Thus a soul’s free will can be very active, but if Love is lacking the soul will nevertheless never reach her destination. It is as if she were driving around aimlessly. Even a soul who does believe yet has no Love will never reach her destination, for the soul does move, to be sure, but the vehicle lacks fuel. Thus it is possible, and this does happen quite frequently, that a soul manages to keep some faith alive and does seem to be using her free will to achieve a goal that is intrinsically good, but nevertheless makes her journey through life unfruitful because she is lacking in true Love. When faith is but shallow (like it is usually the case in folk religion) this is a rather common thing: In theory the soul aims for good things and she does believe she is willing to do God’s Works, but she lacks fuel and thus she gets nowhere and remains unfruitful in the eyes of God.

This image enables you to understand why it is not right to believe it is possible to be delivered from one’s sinful life by saying 'I no longer want my free will'. The soul MUST preserve her free will, yet she must put it to use actively and purposely to achieve the right goals and see to it her fuel line is kept clean, i.e. that she keeps feeding ample amounts of loving fire to her faith (the engine) and then, on the basis of a well nourished engine, turns her steering wheel in the right direction so as to travel straight towards God".

35. The soul as a river

The Heavenly Mistress grants the following image:

The soul is like a river which, in the hour in which it is entrusted by God’s Heart to the world in order to lead her one and only life, is filled with crystal clear water flowing without the slightest impediment. The water is crystal clear because in a soul experiencing and practicing true Love as an absolute priority no trace of mud gets the chance of getting deposited and the flow is unhampered because the soul does not set any conditions and does not allow anything to slow down the flow of Love in her inner dispositions. She does not allow any selfishness nor any feeling of dissatisfaction or opposition to her living conditions to come alive, whether through any jealousy or through bitterness or any other negative dispositions.

As soon as the soul gives in to a temptation of jealousy, resentment, dissatisfaction, inner strife or any other form of dark inner disposition she allows the forces of darkness to throw a rock into her river, thus creating an obstacle to the flow of her water. The more rocks (i.e. temptations to which the soul gives in) will fall into the river the slower the flow will get to be, the more the water will start whirling in some spots (i.e. turbulence, whirls, local 'storms') and the more sludge will get the opportunity to get deposited.

The flow (i.e. active Love) becomes irregular and polluted, and eventually the river turns into a sewer in which the water comes to a standstill in many places and starts fermenting, starts whirling in other places, and in yet other places even reverts its flow, and gets heavily polluted. In such a river life is no longer characterized by the presence of hundreds of plants and aquatic animals (symbolizing life as Works of God) but by bacteria, moulds, fungi and parasites causing disease and poisoning everything that comes into contact with the water.

Maledictions and curses, expressions of resentment, vengefulness and hate come surging up from the fermenting water like foul-smelling vapours that are nauseating and provoke all kinds of disease. Fish which get into this water are bound to die. Each ray of the sun on the surface of the water no longer causes a wholesome steam but vapours indicating decay breeding disease spreading far beyond the river banks.

It is every soul’s mission and holy duty to preserve the crystal clear river inside of her in the state in which God created it. In the hour in which the soul’s past life will be judged all pollution of the water will be shown to the soul as a testimony to her failing to abide by God’s Law, and as a violation of the holy Law of true Love.

You could also picture it as follows: In the hour in which judgment is passed on the soul’s life God carries out an analysis of the water taken from the soul’s river. The quality of the water bears testimony to the extent to which the soul has made good use of His Love and has allowed the latter to flow in its pure condition, and to the extent to which she has protected the river against pollution so as to be able to help accomplish His Works in a way which is somewhat worthy of the state of His Divine perfection.

36. About the fear of one’s fellow man’s judgment

The Heavenly Mistress once drew the attention upon man’s fear of his fellow person’s judgment as one of the greatest drives of many souls’ entire behaviour, and She pointed to the fact this attitude was actually pilloried in the threefold denial of Jesus committed by the apostle Peter in the late hours of Holy Thursday.

One day the Mistress defined man’s fear of his fellow person’s judgment as a soul’s inclination to anticipate any possible reactions and statements by her fellow person as to her behaviour or her way of life, and to adjust her behaviour, her words and opinions, insofar as she allows all of this to be known, to these possible reactions and statements (immaterial whether the latter are real or merely expected). Therefore it is the inclination to behave in accordance to one’s expectations as to what others might approve or disapprove of.

Therefore man’s fear of his fellow person’s judgment is an attitude he assumes as a standard for his own behaviour. Consequently he is no longer focused on God’s expectations but allows his entire behaviour to be determined by other people’s opinions.

For a person the fear of his fellow person’s judgment is all the more important as he finds it more important to be praised or be found interesting by others, or at least not to be disapproved of. What counts for this person is not God’s view, but his fellow person’s view.

Peter was anxious about his own fate if he were to admit to his knowing Jesus and following Him. This is why he denied being one of Jesus’ followers. Thus he broke his ties with God in the eyes of his fellow man. The same thing is done by anybody who lives driven by fear of his fellow person’s judgment and by a heart-felt need to gain admiration, praise or approval from people.

In a way the fear of one’s fellow person’s judgment is a form of opportunism. Opportunism is the attitude of a person who is always adjusting his opinions, his acts, his words etcetera, to the person he happens to be dealing with. For instance, an opportunist can seemingly adhere to completely different political convictions within one single hour, according to the political convictions he knows or expects different dialogue partners to have.

Opportunism therefore makes a person completely unreliable and unpredictable and makes him a seeming advocate of any way of thinking or any ideology. Consequently an opportunist can be very easily manipulated to the utmost by the darkness so as to make him accomplish the latter’s works.

The Heavenly Mistress points out that a soul who acts on the basis of fear for his fellow person’s judgment can very easily deny Jesus: This soul does not allow herself to be guided by the Holy Spirit, by Divine Providence and by Divine Law, but by the reactions she expects people to have as well as by the the influence she expects such reactions to have on people’s views of her, and therefore by the prestige they might either gain or lose in those people’s eyes. In so doing she is constantly denying God by giving preference to people’s potentially regarding them as 'important' or 'okay'. In the eyes of God this soul appears to be ashamed of Him and to consider it very important what people think about her and much less, if at all, what God thinks about her. Yet the fruitfulness and value of a person’s life is determined exclusively by the extent to which this person has lived her life for the purpose of helping accomplish God’s Works.

A soul who lives driven by the fear of other people’s judgment shows to God she considers worldly life to be much more important than Eternal Life, for she is denying the ways of Salvation for the purpose of worldly pseudo benefits.

A person who allows himself to be guided by the fear of his fellow person’s judgment is thus constantly contributing to one of the most painful experiences of Jesus on Holy Thursday.

Once the Mother of God pointed out that the degree to which the fear of one’s fellow persons’ judgment is alive as the driving force behind a soul’s behaviour shows the degree to which this soul’s heart is rooted in the world (indicating a high degree of this attitude) or, inversely, to which she is oriented towards God (indicating the fear of one’s fellow person’s judgment does not greatly influence one’s behaviour).

It can hardly be avoided to experience at least some fear or concern about one’s fellow person’s judgment, because in some situations one may be acting tactlessly towards one’s fellow person if one does not seem to care even one bit about the latter’s views on oneself, one’s behaviour or one’s views and opinions. Things get really unhealthy for spiritual life and fruitfulness if a person tends to adjust to such an extent to his fellow person’s judgment or to the judgment he believes it is likely to expect, that firstly he no longer behaves spontaneously but calculating in all and any elements of life, and secondly forgets or denies his role as a tool for the accomplishment of God’s Works, for in this case the soul is truly walking on the path of denial of God’s Law and therefore of Jesus as the great example of practicing Divine Law, as the Model of spiritual perfection, which is ultimately the only valid goal to be aimed for in each human soul’s life.

37. Parable of the water basin and the filter system

A soul who harbours dark dispositions in her heart will not only victimize the ones against whom these dispositions are specifically directed.

The Mistress of all souls gave the following parable to Myriam:

"Picture a water basin filled with heavily polluted, foul smelling water contaminated with chemicals and bacteria. Water flows from this basin towards other places through any number of ditches and pipes.

The water basin is the heart of a sinister soul who has allowed dispositions such as selfishness, jealousy, resentment, vengefulness, hate, general inner strife and the inclination to harm fellow creatures, curse them, torture or torment or even destroy them, to take root inside of herself. The ditches and pipes are the paths along which the soul is connected with all her fellow creatures through her entire behaviour, all her word, thoughts, feelings, desires, aspirations, everything that is alive inside of her and everything that is proceeding from her towards her fellow creatures.

So the ditches and pipes are the channels of communication from the heart towards all fellow creatures. Communication is understood to mean not only words, but also, and to an even greater extent, all feelings, desires and dispositions which find their way from the heart to all fellow creatures.

The water from the basin reaches the ditches and pipes through a filter system. The filters are the soul’s conscience. The soul is to preserve her filter system in a clean state by practicing self-denying Love in the purest possible way, as this is the only force that is able to maintain a soul’s conscience healthy and in due working order. In a soul who harbours dark dispositions in her heart these filters get to process the heavily polluted water from the basin of the heart, her entire emotional life. Consequently these filters are themselves transformed into hotbeds of bacteria and systems gathering sludge, chemicals and all kinds of toxic matter.

This means that everything that passes through the filter system, no matter to what fellow creature it is sent, even if God Himself is the destination, is inevitably laden with the foul smell and the toxic matter from the basin itself, also in those cases when the soul is trying to present herself in the best possible way to a specific fellow creature and therefore believes she is sendingonly 'clean water' to the latter. The water will never reach this fellow creature (nor God, for that matter) as a clean liquid, it will automatically be a bearer of foul smell, toxic matter, chemicals and bacteria, all the more so as the soul fails to clean up her conscience and to begin living consistently in accordance with God’s Law of self-denying Love for God’s Works and all her fellow creatures.

How is it that God Himself becomes a party to the flow proceeding from a soul, even if the flow is believed to be sent towards specific fellow creatures? The reason lies in the fact God is living inside of each and every creature, that He senses each and every detail of every creature’s inner life, all of the latter’s pains, all of the latter's perceptions. This is why God Himself directly feels everything that is inflicted on any creature. Therefore every negative thought, every negative feeling, every malediction or curse, every torment, every pain, every element of suffering directed by a soul against any fellow creature is felt by Him in every single detail.

Hence My golden rule as a guideline for all behaviour and all inner dispositions: Do not ever forget that every soul is connected with each and every fellow creature as well as with God Himself through an invisible network, and that everything that is alive within a soul and everything which proceeds from her, whether positive or negative, whether filled with Light or with darkness, has a definite impact on the entire network in all of its junctions and all of its mutual lines of communication".

38. About purity

The Heavenly Mistress already taught about purity many years ago. As many souls seem not to be able to picture this basic virtue very well She once presented it in an image:

The Queen of Heaven uses the image of God as the sun and the soul as a mirror. Basically the rays of the sun can be seen as consisting of two major components: light and heat. The heat, or warmth, from the Divine sun is Love, which is the very essence of God.

One can regard the soul as a mirror which captures the rays of the Divine sun in order to stay alive and to be able to do the Works of God. The soul is supposed to ingest the captured light and heat to the highest possible extent and to reflect it further into the entire network of creation. The extent to which the soul is able to reflect the light indicates the degree of her purity. The soul is to preserve her mirror in the purest possible state, in order that, through her intermediary, all she receives from God may be enabled to circulate freely and undistortedly through the network of creation, so as to contribute to bringing, reinforcing and maintaining life everywhere.

Every sin, every vice, every inclination towards dark thoughts, feelings or desires will stain the mirror. The latter will thereby gradually lose its ability to reflect God’s Light and warmth. This state is referred to by the Mistress as defilement or relative impurity.

The more a soul is impure, in other words the more darkness she has allowed to take root within her or to produce its effects, the more her mirror will get stained and the less she will be able to reflect God’s Light in an undistorted way. This is why her degree of purity will also determine the degree to which the soul will let the heat (Love) flow. True self-denying Love is not possible without a high degree of purity, for true self-denying Love is the very nature of God Himself, and purity expresses the extent to which a soul resembles God. The less the soul is the 'image of God' the less she will also practice true self-denying Love for God, for His Works (e.g. creation) and all of her fellow creatures.

Purity as the degree to which the soul is able to let God’s Light flow freely, determines the degree to which the soul resembles God. Indeed, a perfectly pure soul lets God’s Light flow so totally that she is able to accomplish God’s Works to the highest possible degree and to make God’s Presence felt to the highest possible degree.

This absolute pinnacle of purity was only found once among the human souls in all the history of salvation: in the Holy Virgin Mary, the Immaculate Conception and perfectly and permanently sinless 'Woman', elevated by God above all things and all creatures, She who, owing to Her stainless purity, possessed an infinite power over all darkness while She was still living on earth and is therefore rightly the Chosen One among all created human souls, the One who by virtue of Divine proxy and in collaboration with the souls who have consecrated themselves totally to Her for the entire duration of their lives, will crush the serpent’s head, i.e. all works of darkness and their effects in creation, and will in so doing usher in the Kingdom of God on earth. This Kingdom will be the fruit of the seed of Redemption sowed by Jesus Christ into the souls for the perfection of their purity in their God’s image.

The purer the Love a soul manages to practice, i.e. the more her Love is a reflection of the Love of God Himself, the more the soul will be able to make God’s warmth felt so clearly that her fellow creatures experience her presence as a source of security and peace, so much so that it seems to them that God Himself is warming them directly.

In this respect the Mistress observes that it often occurs that a soul is very pure and most loving and nevertheless fails to raise, in certain fellow people, feelings of security, peace and God’s Presence, because these fellow people themselves are very little receptive to God’s Light and warmth on account of the fact they are themselves too defiled to be able to perceive God’s Presence. The soul in front of them may very well be a faithful mirror of God’s Heart, but they themselves do not recognize this because they have allowed themselves to drift away too far from God. Indeed, purity is not only about the ability to reflect the Light and warmth of God to all fellow creatures, it is also about the ability to recognize this Light and this warmth as an essential gift out of God’s hand. The more a soul is impure the less she will be able to both give Light and warmth and to recognize, accept and ingest it. Both abilities determine the degree to which a soul is a reflection of her Creator, who actually IS Love and Light Himself.

39. The parable of the soul’s mission in life

One day the Mistress of all souls expressed a human soul’s mission in life as follows:

The Kingdom of God on earth is like a vast orchard, which all human souls are to cultivate together.

Every soul is assigned a plot of the orchard for the purpose of working on it for the entire duration of her life and to bring it to the greatest possible fruitfulness through her entire behaviour, all dispositions of her heart, all her desires, visions, expectations and aspirations.

The more a soul merges herself with the Will of God and practices God’s Law of true self-denying Love for the entire duration of her life and in all that goes on inside of her, the richer her plot of the orchard is going to be.

At the end of the soul’s life God assesses the harvest of her fruits. The more a soul has been merging herself with the Heart of God by practicing true Love in all her behaviour and in everything constituting her inner life the richer the harvest of her plot of the orchard will be, meaning that God will be able to derive all the more nourishment from it for the benefit of His Kingdom on earth.

Thus every soul’s mission in life consists of preparing as rich an orchard as possible by practicing total self-denying Love every moment of her life. The sanctity of creation is therefore determined by the extent to which all plots constituting the orchard are rich in fruits, and therefore by the number of human souls that greatly fulfil the Law of God.

Every moment in which the soul is focused more on herself, on her purported needs and interests, on the accomplishment of her own expectations and views, the trees in her plot of God’s orchard begin to wither and the fruits fall off prematurely. Her harvest gets smaller and less nourishing, and her plot of paradise is gradually transformed into a leafless and desolate wood.

Souls who live in selfishness, elevation of themselves and negative dispositions such as jealousy, lack of forgiveness, evil thoughts, feelings and desires, allow their plot of the orchard to decay into an arid, unfruitful and desolate wasteland bearing less and less life, with a polluted soil.

The more the soul focuses on God’s Heart sincerely, spontaneously and unconditionally – in other words: the more she regards God’s Heart, the Source of all perfect Love, as the model for the dispositions of her own heart – the cleaner her own soil will remain, for then this soil is constantly nourished with the graces of God’s sunshine and His fertilizing raindrops and dew. The more the soul focuses on herself instead of on God the poorer her soil will get and the more it will get polluted, for the Holy Spirit no longer gets any opportunities to cleanse it.

Thus there exist souls whose plot of orchard resembles a wasteland, even a soil after a nuclear disaster. These souls no longer yield any fruits for God’s Kingdom on earth, but poison ever larger areas of the soil and the orchard God had intended to be a paradise, a reflection of the perfect beauty and fruitfulness of His own Heart.

The absolute opposite was the plot of orchard allotted to the Holy Virgin: a unique piece of paradise of absolutely perfect sanctity which yielded nourishment for many in all the ages, for Her fruits were so rich that their harvest could keep multiplying itself eternally and the seeds from her fruits could be sowed by God into every soul who would be prepared to imitate and follow Mary for the entire duration of her life in the sacred covenant of consecration to God through the Queen of Heaven and earth, the everlasting embodiment of the ultimately developed image of God.

40. The seed of ill weeds

One day the Heavenly Mistress presented the following image:

"What determines if a temptation generates a sin or not? Temptation is a seed cast by the evil one into the soil of a soul. If this soil is receptive to this seed, in other words: if this soil is suitable to nourish this seed, then the seed will sprout as an ill weed. This ill weed is sin, the fruit from the seed which is temptation.

This is why sin can be born only to the extent to which the soul makes herself fertile for the actions of temptation in her. This is also why a soul unjustly blames Satan for her sins: Indeed, Satan prompts her to commit sins, yet it is the soul herself who transforms this prompt into a reality.

Every human soul has the power either to collaborate with Satan or not. If she does, she turns into a channel of darkness. If she does not, she turns into a channel of Light".

Of paramount importance in these words is that the soul should be aware of the fact that she makes her soil more receptive to the seed of sin in proportion as she deviates further from practicing the Divine Law of true Love. A soul who practices self-denying Love towards all her fellow creatures unconditionally and under all and any circumstances will no longer incline towards giving in to temptation so easily. The reason lies in the fact a soul who denies herself will not set great store by her own needs and will consider her fellow creatures’ needs to be more important than her own. Consequently the darkness will have a much harder time trying to tempt her into violating God’s Law, as the latter expects every human soul to serve, support and love all of her fellow creatures under all and any circumstances.

True Love must be understood as the disposition based on which the soul feels no other purpose in life but to help promote all her fellow creatures’ well-being (for the extensive definition of true Love refer to here). A soul who lives like this would be similar to a garden of which the soil only nourishes the most magnificent flowers, yet is like poison for everything for which there is no room in an ornamental garden.

41. The garden of life

One day the Queen of Heaven showed Her Myriam images, which She explained as follows:

"You can view it this way, that God offers a garden on loan to every soul He sends into the world. This garden is to be cultivated and cared for during the soul’s entire life until the hour in which she has to return the garden to God.

The soil of this garden is provided with all kinds of Divine seeds, through which God intends to equip His creature for a life which yields fruits that are fit to nourish the foundations of the Kingdom of Love, Peace and Justice He intends to establish on earth for the benefit of all creatures, and towards the establishment of which every single human soul is to collaborate.

The soul can only bring these seeds to maturity and allow them to develop into flowers and trees to the extent to which she makes full use of the sunbeams of God’s Love, the rain of His graces and the breeze of the Holy Spirit. The sunbeams, raindrops and the breeze proceeding from God constitute the signs of God’s constant dedication to the well-being and Eternal Happiness of every human soul, the signs to which the human soul must react in appropriate ways so as to enable life on earth to fulfil its actual purpose through a steady collaboration between God and herself and so as to see to it that her life may make a positive contribution to the accomplishment of the Great Plan of Salvation God has conceived for the benefit of all creation.

The sunbeams of Divine Love must get the opportunity to warm up the soil of the garden entrusted to the soul. This 'warming up' can only take place to the degree to which the soul herself is innerly fully receptive to the flowing of a perfectly self-denying and serving Love, i.e. to the degree to which her heart is geared totally to the flow of true Love for all her fellow creatures. God offers His perfect Love as fuel to make it possible for the soul to function properly. The soul herself must focus on this Love to such a degree as to enable this fuel to yield its intended effects.

At specific intervals God lets the most various graces shower into the garden as raindrops. These drops must be allowed to penetrate into the soil and reach the Divine seeds, for the latter need the water of grace, the water of Divine Life, to be able to unlock their fruitfulness. This penetration of the rain into the soil will take place to the extent to which the soul keeps her soil soft (by a disposition of meekness, and by not allowing any mental rigidity, any resentments and a lack of forgiveness to prevail inside of her). Moreover she must keep her soil free from the stones of vices and bad habits, and must never spoil it with the chemical and nuclear waste of the most various sins which contaminate the soil and gradually make the Divine seeds sterile and cause them to die.

Without any interruptions the Holy Spirit lets a soft breeze blow over the garden, which intends to fertilize the garden with the pollen of celestial inspirations and teachings and of useful words and examples spoken and set by fellow creatures Divine Providence tries to lead towards the soul’s path through life so as to help her lead a truly spiritual life. This very breeze in its turn transfers the pollen from the garden itself to other gardens insofar as the garden has been bringing flowers to bloom, which are able to help fertilize other gardens. This is how the Holy Spirit, through purposeful inspirations, through Works of Divine Providence, through fellow creatures as well as through the internal actions and teachings provided by His celestial Bride, the Queen of Heaven, keeps trying to make and maintain the soul active and fruitful as a link within the network of all creation. Without the uninhibited action of this element the sunbeams and raindrops will never be able to produce the strength and effects God intends them to produce within the garden of the soul.

In the hour in which judgment is passed on her life the soul is to give her garden back to God. In that hour the Creator judges the state of the garden, its beauty, the perfume produced by its flowers, the quantity and quality of the fruits which have reached maturity in the garden, the degree to which the soil proves to be fruitful, clean and sound, and the extent to which it has made contributions to fertilizing other gardens or, inversely, to the contamination of other gardens.

Keep these images in mind your whole life long, for they express all the soul is offered both by God directly and through her fellow creatures as of the moment she is created until the last moment of her life so as to make her life produce the harvest her Creator intended her to produce, and thereby achieve the true purpose of her life on earth, for this purpose is nothing other than making the greatest possible contribution to the accomplishment of God’s Plan of Salvation for the benefit of all creation".

42. The spiritual life insurance

One day the Queen of Heaven gave Myriam a striking image for the purpose of motivating souls in their daily struggle against the obstacles on their path through life. This image has got the potential to enable every soul to look upon her life in a more positive way, in other words: to allow herself less easily to be negatively influenced by the darker side of events, situations and developments in her life. Moreover it can help motivate souls to lead a life which is in closer accordance with their Maker’s expectations, as He intended the human souls to live in His image and likeness, as pure mirrors of His stainless Love.

The Mistress of all souls spoke as follows:

"Regard the soul’s life on earth as a life insurance she concludes with the One who sends her into the world.

Each and every soul is called upon to help unlock the fruits of the Works of Redemption wrought by the Christ, both in the world and in herself. These Works are absolutely perfect, yet their effects, their concrete fruits, must be unlocked through active contributions on the part of each individual soul.

These individual contributions are made by each human soul through the way she deals with her daily trials and burdens. Every trial, every burden, every inconvenience, every illness, every moment of hardship, every moment of fatigue or feeling tired, every physical or moral suffering, all of these together constitute the insurance premiums the soul pays to Divine Justice.

Owing to all these premiums the Divine Law of true Love is enabled to produce its effects in the world. This Law provides that Divine Love is only able to produce tangible results in the world to the degree to which the flow of Divine Love, through which God keeps everything alive and through which He also tries to maintain a state of balance in His creation is enabled to enter into a covenant with the concrete, self-denying – i.e. perfectly unselfish – Love human souls practice towards their fellow creatures – fellow people as well as animals and even nature as a whole. This covenant means that the flow of Divine Love through creation must be accepted unrestrainedly and be practiced to the fullest by human souls through their actions, words, feelings, thoughts and aspirations filled with sincere unselfish Love and rendering service to all their fellow creatures in the most various situations, events and encounters of life.

The 'premiums' of life on earth as a life insurance are paid concretely in each trial accepted and endured in a disposition of such self-denying, serving Love, in a conscious desire that the trial might contribute to the establishment of a better world, i.e. a world in which Divine Love might truly be able to produce the effects the Creator intended it to produce, a world from which all suffering, misery, chaos and lack of well-being are banned.

After her life on earth, and in accordance with the extent to which the soul has been paying her premiums without any protest and in a disposition of true Love, she receives the payment of a 'life insurance capital' which in Divine Law is referred to as Eternal Bliss. In proportion as larger numbers of souls pay larger amounts of premiums the Divine Law is fulfilled to a greater extent, as the effects of the Mystery of Redemption are unlocked accordingly.

This unlocking manifests itself by an atmosphere of enhanced Love, Light, warmth, inner Peace, happiness and Justice within and between larger numbers of creatures. The current state of the world and the atmosphere of life prevailing in today’s world demonstrate that too few trials are actually endured without any protest and in a disposition of sincere Love. You might say that the amounts of premiums the Great Insurer (God, the Creator) receives from mankind as a whole are not sufficient for Him to fully achieve the goals He harbours for the benefit of creation, i.e. remoulding this world, which is filled with darkness, into a world filled with sincere Love, Light, warmth, inner Peace, happiness and Justice within and between all creatures.

A great many souls do not receive any payment when their life on earth has come to an end, because they have hardly paid any premiums and, on top of this, have incurred additional debts towards Eternal Love by causing suffering and harm to fellow creatures. These souls have made little or no contributions to the Works of Love God wants to accomplish through man on earth. All of this results from the holy duty of each and every soul, which is to help unlock in her own life the Works of Redemption wrought by the Christ, by carrying her cross in His following and constantly being a living sign of true Love".

43. The soul as a flame from the Fire of God

The Triune God can be regarded as a fire, the Source of the Light of the fullness of the Truth and the warmth of the absolutely perfect Love, which together constitute Divine Life.

God created the human soul with the intention that the latter might lead a life in His image, and that she would therefore in her turn be a fire representing towards all of creation the Divine fire of Truth and Love.

The fire of the soul should never go out, as it is meant to keep reminding all creatures of the Presence and actions of the Triune God. The purer the soul manages to preserve her likeness to the image of her God and Creator the more fruitful her life can get, for God judges every human life by the degree to which it has fulfilled His Law of Love and has testified to the fullness of the Truth, i.e. to God being the perfectly loving Source of Divine Life.

Let us remember the way the Mistress of all souls once defined Divine Life:

"Divine Life is the true Life of the soul like God provided it to be, based on the constant inspirations by the Holy Spirit, with a sensitivity which enables the soul to keep penetrating more and more deeply into that which is right and into the only full Truth of Divine Mysteries, so that, in a manner of speaking, the soul is moved totally and exclusively by the Will of God and that she makes all her decisions based on this experience".

In order to be able to be a sincere and convincing sign and testimony of God as the Source of absolutely perfect Love the soul must be a blooming garden of true Faith, based on the sincere conviction that God leaves no stone unturned to see to it that His creation is ruled by nothing but Love, Peace and harmony, and that therefore all and any misery and suffering in our world is not due to God but to a lack of commitment on the human souls’ part to keep their inner fire for the interests of God burning.

The soul’s fire can only burn to the extent to which the soul keeps nourishing it with firewood. This firewood consists of the genuine will to imitate God Himself by practicing an unconditional, unselfish and most pure Love, both towards all her fellow creatures and towards God and all His Works, His Plans and His Law. As soon as the soul allows this inner will to weaken by tearing her inner dispositions away from God and from the desire to live only for the purpose of fulfilling all of His Works and Plans within creation the flame of the soul will get smaller.

The further the soul drifts away from God in her heart the weaker her fire will get, until it only smolders and eventually extinguishes altogether. She then falls into a state which is very dangerous to her eternal future, for a soul in whom the fire has gone out becomes a junction of darkness and cold within the network of creation and becomes useless as a tool for the accomplishment of God’s Works. Blessed is the soul in whom, in the hour in which the fruitfulness of her life on earth is to be finally judged, God finds a blazing flame which has proceeded from His own Fire and which testifies before Him of the darkness it has been consuming all along her journey through life because it has been nourishing itself with a never extinguishing desire to be like the One from Whom she has proceeded, in order to be worthy of merging with Him again when His time will come.

44. Tormented Love

God designed His creation as a system, a network, consisting of countless junctions (the various creatures) which are interconnected through invisible 'threads' or 'little channels'. Through these channels is supposed to flow a 'fuel', which is to maintain the entire system intact, healthy and functional. This fuel is called Love. Love is the Divine force which breathes Life into the entire system and which is designed to turn the system into a true image of the 'dispositions of the Heart' of its Divine Maker.

The Creator entrusted His creation to the custody of the human souls. The vital strength animating the whole of creation, i.e. Love, flows from God towards all of His creatures. Divine Love is one and indivisible, meaning that every creature receives the fullness of God’s Love. However, as the human soul has received custody over each and every fellow creature the human soul is the one who is responsible for guaranteeing an unhampered flow of Love through the main channels, which run from every human soul towards all of her fellow creatures and towards the non human creatures (animals and elements of the living nature). This is owing to the fact the human soul is the only creature on earth to have received from God the mission to sanctify herself, i.e.: to lead a life in the image of her Divine Creator in order to enable all of creation to see or feel that God and the actions of His perfect Love truly exist and to be able to thrust this Divine Love through all channels of the network in an undefiled state so that all creatures are enabled, both inside their own hearts and among each other, to live in a disposition which actually proves God’s Presence, i.e. in a disposition of perfect Peace, happiness, feelings of security and without any feelings of being threatened.

Day after day countless channels within the network are damaged or destroyed by human souls, remain unused, are abused, many of them get clogged and die off, all of this due to actions, words, thoughts, feelings, desires or aspirations lacking Love or through which Love is directly damaged, defiled, poisoned or destroyed.

At some point in the past the Queen of Heaven pointed out most emphatically that the network of creation is severely weakened and ruined by the millions of situations, occurring daily all over the world, in which human souls subject a fellow creature (human or animal) to the most various forms of maltreatment because of the fact this fellow creature looks 'different' or in a way 'not fitting in with my views, expectations or desires'. Humans or animals presenting some physical 'abnormality', characterized by a colour (of skin) one regards as 'undesirable' or by any feature catching the eye or deemed to be 'unusual' are being mocked, tormented, maltreated, abused, persecuted, terrorised, hated, insulted, being thrown at with stones or sticks, their dwelling or abode and their possessions are damaged, and they are systematically made the objects of the most various forms of sadism and of intentionally inflicted sufferings and misery.

Within the framework of such dispositions towards fellow creatures we can witness the birth of inclinations with reference to which the Mistress of all souls already frequently said they highly displease God and call serious darkness down upon the world: racism, maltreatment and abuse of fellow people and animals, persecution, genocide (killing of people from a specific nation or ethnic group), torture and the most various forms of intentional damaging and intentionally inflicting suffering and misery. The tremendous degree of sinfulness lies herein, that in so doing the human soul elevates herself above fellow creatures instead of accepting the position God has provided for her to have within creation, that she fails to respect and to appreciate her fellow creature (whereas each and every creature is a work of God, made from His Love and intended to fulfil a specific role within creation based on the characteristics and features it has received from Him), and that by harbouring such disposition she overtly disdains, mocks and rejects the Love of God.

Every time a human soul treats a fellow creature (whether human or animal) badly, mocks, torments, persecutes it etcetera, she is actually saying to this fellow creature "I do not want you", and to God Himself "I do not want Your Love". Such a soul is like that because she has allowed the forces of the darkness to deceive her into banning God’s true vital strength from her own life as well as from the entire world. The darkness will do this in order to extinguish the Light in creation altogether and to replace the fire of Love by the lifeless cold of Satan himself, who is the source of death, misery and suffering and who prefers to bring all of this about through the human souls.

The human soul who fails to spontaneously and wholeheartedly regard every contact with any fellow creature as a gift from Eternal Love, as an opportunity to make Love, this Divine fuel of Life and Divine medicine for sick hearts, flow vigorously, cuts herself loose from true Life, thereby opting for a life in a disposition of darkness, lack of Love, solitude, death and hopelessness, and gets mired in the arrogance of elevating herself to be a judge of her fellow creatures: God Himself, who is Eternal Wisdom and perfect Love, has made every creature to be an instrument for the fulfilment of His Plan for the perfect sanctification of all creation, in order that the world may truly become a paradise of perfect Peace and happiness, yet the human soul, who makes herself a channel of misery and darkness for her fellow creatures, usurps the right to bring fellow creatures down and plunge them into darkness and unhappiness, so much so that they become unable to fulfil their mission in life at the service of the establishment of true happiness on earth due to the fact the intervention of a human soul – who was intended by God to be the crown of His creation! – has robbed it of true Light and of the warmth of sincere Love and true hope.

A creature which is plunged into darkness by a human soul is also robbed of genuine faith, because a tormented human soul feels rejected by God Himself, who is the Source of all Love, and a tormented animal falls prey to a disposition in which it is no longer able to spontaneously be itself due to the feeling it is not loved and that it apparently only lives for one purpose only: to experience constant threats, disdain and scorn. One day the Queen of Heaven pointed out that animals are infinitely more sensitive to such an atmosphere of life and to the flow of Love or the lack of it, respectively, than all science will ever be able to presume or to demonstrate, owing to the fact that animals possess an extraordinarily highly developed unconscious feeling of being connected to God, His Love, His Plan pertaining to Life and His Laws of Life.

This is why human souls who are guilty of such dispositions towards fellow humans and/or animals are tormenting the Heart of God Himself, who is the Source and the Embodiment of the absolutely perfect and most pure Eternal Love. God, in His absolutely perfect Wisdom, has designed all of creation according to a Plan which, to the extent to which it is strictly implemented by human souls (the directives and guidelines to that end are imprinted upon each and every human heart!), guarantee a perfectly healthy, holy system of Divine happiness on earth. This is why He has designed each and every individual creature exactly the way it is, and not in any way differently, each with its specific individual traits and characteristics, because this is how it fits within His infallible Plan.

Every creature is expected to learn how to make use of its personal traits and characteristics in such a way as to be able to truly help bring salvation upon the world. Animals usually do this in amazing ways, humans on the other hand are often less successful in this field. One major reason for this is that many humans tend to react and to behave much less from the heart (i.e. from a silent, rather unconscious and non rationalized sense of being connected to God!) but rather to take guidance in rational thinking (thus making themselves very vulnerable to inspirations by obscure systems of thinking which are likely to result in illusion, delusion, deception and world views which vastly depart from the intentions God harbours regarding creation). No human soul possesses the infallible ability to judge that a specific human or animal would be 'ill designed', 'not fitting in' or 'of no value'. God wishes every human soul to spontaneously and unconditionally be respectful to any fellow creature and to not reject or disapprove of it on account of certain characteristics. The latter inclination results from the human soul not accepting God’s designs as infallible and perfectly meaningful.

The Mother of God therefore emphatically states it is extraordinarily valuable for the salvation of all creation if a human soul spontaneously and wholeheartedly approaches all fellow creatures (humans as well as animals), especially those possessing characteristics which differ from her own characteristics (e.g. a fellow person with a different colour of skin, an animal with an appearance judged as 'unusual', etcetera) from a disposition of unconditional, self-denying Love on the basis of a sincere desire to provide all fellow creatures service, help, support, comfort and encouragement and to envelop them in a genuine feeling of being unconditionally appreciated, respected and loved. According to the Holy Virgin Mary exactly this disposition is pre-eminently able to engender a Light that is so powerful that it is able to help render much darkness in this world ineffective and to help prevent that certain sinful or nefarious intentions on the part of instruments of the darkness can be implemented anywhere in the world.

45. The seed and the harvest

Each individual soul is an element in the all-encompassing system of creation, a junction in a network. As a result of this each soul will also harvest from the fruits which have proceeded from the seeds she herself has cast into the soil:

A soul who harbours negative dispositions brings darkness into creation and will thereby harvest even more darkness herself. A soul who generates darkness (through her actions, words, thoughts, feelings, desires and aspirations) will herself harvest the fruits of this darkness which, in the meantime, has been poisoning creation of which she herself is an element. This means that a soul who causes harm to fellow creatures, wishes them harm or even merely goes through her days harbouring dark feelings will not only harm others or rob them of Light and inner peace but is also harming her own self. Not only others become victims of the way she is and the way she acts, she also makes herself a victim, and does so twice:

A soul that generates darkness creates around herself a dark atmosphere through which she makes it hard for herself to keep ingesting Light and warmth from her surroundings. She makes herself a victim of her own dark dispositions, actions, desires etcetera for the second time, making her spiritual dispositions darker and darker (whoever spreads darkness around is harbouring sins and vices), thus jeopardizing her own eternal future (her destiny after life on earth). Therefore a soul who causes harm to any fellow creature or takes the Light out of any fellow creature’s life or makes such life hell is in the true sense of the word deplorable: she is actually damning herself and thus building her own hell for all eternity after her life on earth, and as her dark dispositions attract ever more darkness towards herself she is never going to find true happiness.

This phenomenon could also be expressed in the following image: Let us picture the whole of creation as a giant pond. Every soul drinks from this pond and is also constantly adding drops to it through each and every output of her life (i.e. all her actions and omissions, her words, thoughts, feelings and aspirations). A soul that generates darkness by her actions, thoughts, feelings and aspirations is, in a manner of speaking, adding drops of poison to the pond. This means she is actually poisoning all of creation, of which every element (human soul) is drinking at the pond, and moreover she is poisoning herself in the process.

Inversely a soul who, through her actions, words, thoughts, feelings and aspirations, harbours Light inside her heart will contribute to making the pond of creation healthier and cleaner, thereby enabling herself to drink cleaner and healthier water. Years ago already the Queen of Heaven said that a brightful disposition is the very Light of the soul. A soul with a positive and brightful attitude, driven by pure dispositions of the heart (i.e.: dispositions which are in accordance with the Heart of God Himself and thus are bearers of pure Love) is a bearer of Light and thus contributes to preventing the darkness from accomplishing its plans and works of destruction in the world.

As soon as a soul will harm fellow creatures or harbours the intention or the desire to harm, torment or discourage fellow creatures or to rob fellow creatures of their inner Light in any way whatsoever she is bound to harvest even more darkness herself, for in so doing she is opening the door to her own inner life to allow the darkness to access it and become the sole ruler of her entire behaviour and all of her thoughts, feelings and desires, thus impeding the effects produced by the God of Love and Light inside herself in the process. God will not impose His Love and Light on anyone, He always respects every soul’s own free choice.

A human soul who brings darkness, misery and suffering upon creation thereby causes harm to creation as a Work of God and will eventually inevitably be judged by the Divine Creator as an enemy of His Works. This soul contributes to poisoning the whole world and will also harvest the fruits of her darkness herself, already during her life on earth (even though she will not always be aware of it) and with absolute certainty in her non-material life afterwards. Once the Queen of Heaven referred to a soul who generates darkness, misery and suffering as a murderer of true Life: Through her entire way of being and her entire inner life this soul contributes to weakening the intensity and power of the flow of God’s Love through the world, thus reducing the vital strength of creation as a whole. The Mistress of all souls calls this the very reason why today’s world produces such a depressing, discouraging and paralyzing effect upon the inner life of countless souls: Life which God is incessantly injecting into the entire network of creation is only able to produce a limited portion of the power it actually possesses. The Mistress compares this situation with the phenomenon of thick layers of dark clouds preventing even the most powerful rays of sunlight to reach the soil of the earth, thus making for a very gloomy atmosphere right in the middle of the day.

A soul who generates darkness will, by so doing, never find inner peace nor real happiness, but will eventually wither in inner strife, feelings of resentment, disappointment, frustration and feelings of a big void and meaninglessness, as deep down her conscience knows very well she is not fulfilling the only mission God sent her into the world with. A soul who, throughout her only life in this world, fails to prepare a harvest yielding healthy food for all of creation (which is a Work of God) is in the eyes of God leading a totally useless life, as instead of fulfilling her true mission in life as a tool for the accomplishment of God’s Works and Plans in creation she is enhancing the power wielded by the darkness for the purpose of defiling God’s Plans and Works and, if at all possible, destroying them. As long as God’s Law of true Love is not completely fulfilled God’s Kingdom of perfect Love, Peace, Happiness and Justice in the world cannot be established. Every single human soul is accountable for this establishment as well as for any delay or obstruction in materializing it.

46. The Passion of each human life

Every human soul is in this world for one purpose, for one reason only, and with one general mission: God creates every single soul and sends her into the world in order for her to put her entire being, each and every element of her behaviour and her entire inner life (thoughts, feelings, aspirations, desires...) at God’s disposal as a useful tool through which He can develop the accomplishment of His Plan of Salvation, which is to culminate in the establishment of His Kingdom of perfect Love, Peace, Happiness and Justice on earth. The souls can accomplish this life-long mission only by practicing the Divine Law of true, selfless Love through their entire behaviour, all of their encounters with all and any fellow creatures, in their heartfelt attitude towards God Himself and through everything that is living deep inside of them.

After the first created human souls had committed the original sin (which was the first violation of the Law of true Love), God faced the necessity of creating the possibility of an in-depth purification for the human souls, i.e. of restoring a perfect harmony between human nature and His perfect intentions. There was no other way to ever achieve the major ultimate goal and purpose of creation, which is the establishment of God’s Kingdom on earth. Through this establishment all of creation was to become a perfect reflection of the Kingdom of the Heavens, which is nothing else but the Kingdom of the absolutely perfect practice of the Divine Law of true Love. The Kingdom of the Heavens is the non-material expression of the Kingdom of perfect Love, creation was to become the material expression of this Kingdom. The sins of human souls prevented this from being achieved.

This is why Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was to come into the world in a human body in order to preach true Love and offer an absolutely perfect and all-embracing physical and moral suffering, so as to generate the perfect expiation of the effects produced by the serious violations of God’s Law the human souls of all times had been piling up all along and would keep piling up.

Every human soul is under the sacred obligation of following the Christ by imitating His dispositions (of suffering in a state of perfect, self-denying and unconditional Love), offering all trials of her life to God, for the purpose of disclosing the endless and eternally ripe fruits generated through the Sufferings of the Christ. The whole of the trials experienced by a human soul in the course of her life on earth constitutes, in a manner of speaking, her passion. Just like the Great Passion was the actual purpose of the Christ’s life on earth the actual purpose of each human life lies in the trials she experiences. These trials can make her life a concatenation of bombings on the positions held by the darkness, provided these trials are truly experienced, accepted and offered up (consecrated) in accordance with the spirit of Christ, who is the embodiment of true Love. It is of paramount importance that every soul should keep in mind that the Christ not only suffered in the last days of His life on earth, the days of the actual Passion. His entire life was a concatenation of trials and sufferings, most of which are not in the domain of general knowledge.

A perfectly true following of Christ is possible only to the extent to which the human soul practices true selfless Love in all contacts and encounters with all her fellow creatures and even in her deepest, most secret feelings, thoughts and desires, as well as to the extent to which she is willing to bear all physical and moral trials of her life (as these constitute her cross, her scourging, her crowning with thorns, her sufferings in the Garden of Olives) in unity of hearts with the suffering Christ.

A soul who leads her life in such a disposition will deeply purify her heart. Only on the foundation of a sufficiently pure heart will the soul be able to allow truly pure Love to flow through all elements of her behaviour. Only then can the soul be a radiant Light that is able to make darkness in the world ineffective and thus to truly help bring forward the establishment of God’s Kingdom on earth.

The Mistress of all souls grants the following metaphor to the souls:

Due to sin and to all human souls constantly giving in to the most various temptations and inspirations from the darkness creation can be pictured as a water which is heavily poisoned and therefore constitutes a risk to all and any Life. Every action, word, thought, feeling, desire and aspiration bearing true Love is like a drop of antidote injected into this poisoned water, making it less poisonous and less turbid and therefore more viable.

Such a drop is therefore like an extension of the Blood of Christ, which is able to rob the darkness of its power, but of which the invincible power needs to be unlocked (brought to its full effect) by expressions of true Love on the part of human souls. Every expression of true Love on the part of a human soul is basically a merger of a soul with the redemptive Blood of Christ. In a manner of speaking this merger is a mother giving birth to fruits of new Life for creation.

The Queen of Heaven presents this as a sacred Passiontide mission for every human soul: The Divine Law of true Love must be so spontaneously and unconditionally practiced in all and any situations of each individual human life and in all and any contacts with all fellow creatures, and all trials of life must be accepted and experienced in such a state of self-denial and conscious unity with the suffering Christ and offered up to God as such, that the entire journey of the human soul through her life can be used as a powerful tool in the hands of God, against the works and plans through which the darkness keeps poisoning God’s creation day after day and keeps trying to transform creation into a kingdom of misery and suffering. A soul who manages to comply with this desire harboured by her Creator becomes an active gardener in the gardens from which God intends to build His Kingdom on earth. Her works will root up lots of ill weeds and help transform all the seeds God is trying to bring to bloom into flowers, shrubs and trees as a witness to true Life.
