The aim of all the messages which God, in His mercy, has permitted me to address to you, is to recall to the deepest consciousness of each of you and myself, the Gospel precept concerning truth, righteousness and love.
The basis of this precept is an inexpressible and boundless dream,
a song of eternal tenderness. It is the song of the Lord.
(from a Letter, June 28, 1984)
O brother, all the visible things will pass,
and the man and his works
and his knowledge
and the earth and the firmament.
But above the movements, the distances,
the largest and the smallest numbers
and any radiation,
there is a life of peace without end
in the infinite love of God.
Mary, the Queen of Heaven and earth,
may lead you
to the kingdom of Christ.
