MESSAGES THROUGH JULIA
1) Thursday, 25/9/97, at 21.04, at her home, in the customary manner
"(Julia) If you are my Jesus glorify the Father (3). (Jesus) Glory be to the Father Most High as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be world without end. Amen. * Peace to you, children of my Heart! It is I, your Jesus, the Sacrificed Lamb is here among you: rejoice and celebrate, beloved spouses of my Heart!* My cross, drink also today my green cups and accept again with love your pains* of childbirth and mine: little stubborn one, when you aren't able, cry out my pains!* (Julia) Jesus, give me strength and constancy.* (Jesus) My daughter, daughter of my Heart,* prepare yourself because the times that shall come* will be even more heavy; prepare the Boat within you, my soul, because you too have to pull ……… (Julia) Yes, Mother! (= Jesus–Mother ...editor's note) (Jesus) … for your children: bring them always to my Cross,* offer them my cups and make them drink, my soul,* because I come among you holding high my Holy Gospel!* and I ask each of you to bring it to the brethren & make it known & loved: I ask you to be living tabernacles of my Word, of my Light - of my Body & Blood. My children, children of my Heart, prepare the poor-dwellings because the Father is coming imminently among you; for this reason my Mother brings you the flour to make dough with. Let you, my cross, start off – start to knead-dough - and make the Priests knead-dough firstly, and then all the others, but I beg you: knead-the-dough like Mary and with Mary! I am here among you, take a look, my daughter: Mary stands kneading-dough for humanity!* Let you drink my green cups!* (Julia) Jesus, give me strength!* (Jesus) My daughter, they are bitter, but drink them for my Little John, namely for the Pope.* (Julia) Jesus, he is stained with blood!* (Jesus) Do not be frightened, my soul! see: he too is working Mary’s flour into dough!* (Julia) Jesus, why is he stained with blood?* (Jesus) My daughter, he prays for humanity and his sweat becomes blood: do not be afraid:* now drink and be strong! Take a look, my soul: do not be frightened!* (Julia) Stop them! stop them!* Jesus, it pierces one’s heart!* (Jesus) Behold the second part,... my soul: look at what they are doing!* (Julia) Jesus, support me!* (Jesus) My daughter, this is one small part that you see, but they do even worse to my Body: pray for these children of mine! (Julia) Jesus, give them your Light! (Jesus) My daughter, it is they who have chosen this way, I have given them my way, but they do not accept it: pray - pray - pray so that the scourges which surround you may be distanced from you! My souls, souls of my Heart, I come among you as a Baby, but I am not accepted: I am driven away! You kill me moment by moment! you do not even see that I am a Baby among you: And Mary, my Mother, with her Maternal Heart, sews for you thorns for making reparation for all the offences that you cause to my Heart and to the Father's Heart! My children, raise the WALLS that are collapsing, lift up the STONES one by one, my children, and be ready and prepared for the times that will come! I am bringing you my Light, my Love and my Holy Gospel: I bring you the Father's Shalom, my children, and I ask you to implore mercy - mercy – mercy from the Father. My children, you do not understand what I am saying to you, you are annoyed even when I speak here among you - and in the whole world! How little you listen to my Heart: when you go outside, you do not remember anything anymore and you take up living again according to the world! Ah, how pierced is my Fatherly Heart! How pierced is the Heart of my Beloved Mother! However she continues to knead-dough and does not stop: her "Yes" is an enduring "Yes". Are you able to give your Yes? For how much time do you give it? Do you look around you, my children? Do you look to see if you can take at least a step? & whether your Yes lasts for one step? Ah, my children, how little you make your Yes last? How little you love your bodies - made in my image and likeness! You belong to me, you are my property because I have brought you to birth from my Heart: but you do not seek me as your Father! You do not embrace me when I come among you! You do not offer me a caress when I approach each of you: whereas I embrace you and hold you close to my Heart! I too desire your caresses, I want your caprices, your snuggles because I am a Baby and you are my mothers: but you do not love me, my children! I come to touch your hearts and want them to burn with love: learn the Art of Love! learn to say: I love you! I love you! I do love you! And repeat it to every creature who approaches each of you: learn this word, but learn it firstly with the heart and then little by little you may lightly touch your lips saying: I love you! Make it blossom in your hearts, my children! Behold I am bringing you the School of Love, but do not be scandalized and do not think about earthly things: Think with your heart and let it act, refill it with love and with the Holy Spirit and let yourselves be taken by the hand - docile and small - like children and let your loving & giving be a giving of children because this is the way I want you ((to be)), little and docile, my children! Now, my cross, bring your children through the Door of the Childbirth and do not be frightened by the sea of blood that you see,* but drink also like my Little John:* drink this blood, my soul! (Julia) Father! Father! Father, support me!* (Jesus) Walk, my soul: bring your children! (Julia) There is the Pope again drinking blood and the Heavenly Mother is kneading-dough too: it is sweet to stay united! (Jesus) Come, my daughter: let you too knead-dough along with Mary!* Now, offer your dough-kneading* to the world! My daughter, prepare your heart: prepare it! (Julia) Father! My Father!* (Jesus) My spouse and daughter, unite yourself to my Cross!* (Julia) Yes, my Lord and my God! (Jesus) Now, son Paschal, offer me a cup of bread and a glass of wine as sign of friendship and poverty because it is thus that I come among you, small & poor: but I bring you my Caprices, my Love & my Infinite Mercy. I bring you my caprices because I want to play with my spouses: let you play with me also, children, and do not be scandalized by my words! Now, MY FATHER, BLESS THIS BREAD AND THIS WINE: RENDER IT FRUITFUL IN LOVE AND GIVE IT TO HUMANITY.* (Julia) Father, my Father! (Jesus) My daughter, drink* drink again the green cup and suffer for your children who at this moment are trampling on my Body*. (Julia) Father! my Father! (Jesus) Daughter, stay united to my Cross!* Now offer the holy son to drink, offer my Little John to drink, the John whom I have sent among you: listen to his voice, my children! Little John, pull my Boat laden with my Gospel, make more knots(¶ ) my son, and don't stop, I am always at your side, I am not leaving you, always be mother and father for your children, make them grow up, make them walk on my thorns: And do not take them away, my children, accept the thorns that Little John (meaning Don Mario) gives you. My son, walk always with the Gospel, offer it to the marginalized, to the drug-addict children, to the children in prison: bring them my Love and my Light. Now, drink, my son: drink!* Spouse of my Heart (= Julia), drink my cup and suffer again for humanity. (Julia) Father! my Father! (Jesus) Drink, my daughter:* offer it to my spouses to drink. My son, divide and unite the Love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit: eat it and give it to your spouses and let them always be fruitful with the Father's Merciful Love because I am here among you to make you Mothers of the Cross: Mothers of the Blessed Eucharist. My children, I love you and give myself with love in the Sign of the Bread and Wine: and MY PEACE IS COMPLETE - MY LOVE IS COMPLETE BECAUSE I AM FATHER and I love you, I do love you, my children! Peace to you who are gathered here. Peace to you, children ((elsewhere)), who unite yourselves to this holy prayer. Peace to you who unite yourselves to my Heart. Peace to the sick whom you offer me. Peace: but let it be complete peace in your hearts! Now, my children, little ones of my Heart, be united - come near to me: draw near to my Heart because I want you near! Be conscious of this moment, do not forget that I am alive and real among you: unite your hearts and be one single thing only! Little cross of my Heart, draw near to the Nuptial Banquet. (Julia) Father! my Father! (Jesus) My spouse and daughter! (Julia) Father! Father! Father! (Jesus) Yes, my daughter! (Julia) Yes, Jesus!* (Jesus) TAKE THIS ALL OF YOU AND EAT IT: THIS IS MY BODY GIVEN TO YOU ALL IN THE FATHER'S GREAT MYSTERY. EAT IT IN ABUNDANCE. TAKE THIS ALL OF YOU AND DRINK FROM IT: THIS IS THE CUP OF MY BLOOD GIVEN TO YOU ALL IN THE GREAT MYSTERY OF THE FATHER. DRINK IT IN ABUNDANCE BECAUSE IT IS BLOOD OF NEW LIFE. Behold, I am given to everyone of you and my Easter is complete because I love you: THE FATHER’S MYSTERY IS FULFILLED IN A PIECE OF BREAD AND IN A GLASS OF WINE. My children, be conscious! - be aware! - be conscious that here among you it is I, the Master, your Jesus! Kneel down: contemplate my Love, contemplate my Heart, contemplate the Poor-Dwelling of Jesus, Joseph and Mary! My children, contemplate the Holy Family and let your poor-dwelling too be holy! let your living be holy! let your acting be holy! let your "Yes" be holy! Children of my Heart, now I leave you but I shall come again among you. Now I seal you through the holy Priest of Love and Peace and I ask you for these little sacrifices, my children: do not complain but offer them with love to the Father! Now I bless you with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Increase and multiply in the Father’s Love. Holy son, little Mario, seal my little Julia and little Paschal with the Kiss of Love, with the Little John Kiss. My children, exchange yourselves too the seal of my Love, and I implore you: let it be for you a holy kiss; let it be for you a kiss to unite you to my Cross and do not think evil thoughts in your hearts & minds but let my Holy Kiss be a Sign of the Cross. Now, my children, join the Holy Chain = join hands and pray slowly with my Holy Fatherly Prayer = Our Father. Contemplate every word, but contemplate it with the heart: let this holy prayer be for you a Total Union with the Father, let this holy praying and holy coming together in this little cottage of mine be for you a Living of Bread! Now let us pray, my children, but remember always: Lead us not into temptation! Remember it: let this holy prayer be a trumpet sound for you! Now let us pray! - (The group pray the Our Father aloud) - Praise and bless the Father for the graces that he makes descend upon you. Praised be the Father Most High always. (Julia) I love you, Jesus! (4). (Jesus) I also love you, spouses of my Heart and I wait for your caprices (we all say : I love you, Jesus). (Jesus) Thanks for having listened to my Word. My cross =Julia, now unite yourself in prayer and after finishing the holy prayer consume my Bread. Amen". (¶ ) [= make tow-rope knots]
2) Friday 26/9/97, at 10.40a.m., at home, in crucifixion, orally
"Jesus speaks to the world: My children, do not be a scandal and do nothing that can harm the little ones. Let your life be a union of joy, poverty & simplicity and do not seek noise: the chaos of the world! Let everything be silence between you and God: let what you do for the little and the poor be done in silence. Rejoice after giving my Bread to the brethren, but do not boast: let everything be for the glory of God. Be careful not to take° - symbol the Father’s place. Children, my enemy is astute and always stands to observe where you go wrong, therefore, my children, exercise charity, love and prayer and fight him thus because where there is love and openness of heart my enemy cannot dwell. Let you, Priest sons, administer your call with love and remember that I will come like I promised: be ready! Let you Four of my Cross, pull my Boat loaded with my Gospel and don't stop: I am always with you and do not leave you. With you I bless the world with the Tremendous Sign of the Holy Cross. Amen Amen Amen Amen."
3) Sunday 28/9/97, at Thurio, at the Mass of the new parish-priest - . - A Vision:
Julia writes: "At Thurio’s church, a vision on Sunday 28 (September 1997, at 11.35 approx.) I saw a GREAT HOST which came down from heaven and as it descended the church was filled with BLOOD and out from the Blood came SMALL HOSTS. In each of the hosts there was A LITTLE BABY and from their small mouths more Hosts came out. Then an inscription appeared which said: I AM THE GOD OF ANCIENT TIMES. THERE ARE NO OTHER GODS OUTSIDE OF ME. On the inscription there was also a BIG CROSS and a BOAT".
4) Sunday 28/9/97, at 15.25, at the Oak, in the usual manner
"(Julia) If it is you glorify the Father (3). (Our Lady) Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be world without end. Amen.* My daughter, drink today too my Jesus' green cups* and sacrifice yourself this day with the pains of childbirth* for humanity.* My daughter, drink this cup and accept these thorns as a present for your feast (= her 40th birthday).* My daughter, burden yourself with my Jesus' Cross and walk - walk on because the way is still long: work for souls who do not want to hear the Living Word of my Jesus. I invite ye to hold high today's Gospel (26/B). My children, open-wide your arms and receive the Living Cross of my Jesus who is here among you, my children, and he is the greatest gift that God the Father gives to each of you and to humanity: be conscious of these words of mine, my children, little ones of my Heart! The times that are coming down on humanity are heavy: my children, make them light with prayer, with accepting the Light of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Do not let yourselves be dragged along by my enemy: do not run to obscure places but seek the Light of the Gospel and take refuge in it. My children, drink the green cups too, help my Jesus, burden yourselves with the Holy Cross and do not take these words of mine as repetition: let them be fresh flowers for each of you and stay ever alive in your hearts, do not let them die, my children! Today I want to speak to the YOUTH, to the flowers of my Paradise: My sons and daughters, make your hearts available, let my Jesus' Light & Love come in, be instruments of peace, love and happiness, knead the Father's flour into dough along with me, leave the world and approach the Cross: My children, mothers of my Jesus, mothers of the Father, let yourselves be molded by the Fire of Pentecost and do not be scandalized by these words of mine! I am the Mother of the Cross and I ask you to bring the Holy Wood to humanity. My children, be always ready for the three days of darkness that will come, put on the garment of the Cross and do not fear anything or anybody - fight the Battle of Love and know that my Immaculate Heart will triumph and this triumph is near, my children, even if you do not know either the day or the hour, but let your heart be the poor-dwelling of the Most Holy Trinity: offer all of yourselves to the Father, my children! Little cross of my Jesus, ask the Priest sons to make holy processions, remind them always to take away paganism: say it with poor words and do not be frightened, my daughter, approach them and with the Holy Spirit's Love ask them to walk with the Holy Cross. (Julia) Mother, how can I do this? (Our Lady) Little stubborn one of my Heart, do it and do not be afraid of anything or anybody: the Holy Spirit will speak. Now, my creature accept again with love the pains of childbirth.* (Julia) Yes, Mother, but give me the strength and constancy! (Our Lady) Go ahead and bring your children through the Door of Childbirth: but always remember to hold up my Jesus' Living Gospel and make it be held high also for your children. My children, I ask you to pray according to my intentions as Immaculate and Sorrowful Mother, pray - pray - pray: but pray with the heart! Form the Holy Family and always stay united in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, little ones of my Heart! make Love triumph! raise up holy praises to God the Father! My children, I read each of your hearts and with motherly love I bless your hearts* and bring your heart-beats before the Father's Throne: be conscious of these words of mine, be conscious of my living and real presence among you. Form the Holy Chain, form it, children, and pray in your hearts, pray in the silence of your hearts: UNITE YOURSELVES to the Holy Prayer of the Most Holy Eucharist.* Bless and praise God for the Graces that he gives you. Bless and praise God for the Bread that he offers you. Bless and praise God for his Body and his Blood. My children, now I leave you but I will come again into your midst to bring you the Father's Living Word. Always be conscious of my presence among you and let your hearts be always alight with the Holy Spirit's Love. I bless you with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Increase and multiply in the Holy Sign of the Most Holy Eucharist. Living cross of my Jesus, suffer again in the Silence of the Cross for your children. (Julia) Yes, Mother! (Our Lady) Praise (4). Praised be the Most Holy Names of Jesus, Joseph and Mary. Amen. My cross, pray!"
5) Thursday 2/10//97, at 21.04, at home, in the customary manner
"(Julia) If you are my Jesus glorify the Father (4).* (Jesus) Glory be to the Father Most High as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be world without end. Amen.* Peace to you, children of my Heart!* It is I, your Jesus, the Sacrificed Lamb* is here among you: rejoice and celebrate, spouses of my Heart!* REJOICE AT THE PRESENCE OF MY LIVING WORD,* but be careful: REJOICE IN THE SUFFERING OF MY CROSS and do not prostrate yourselves to other gods! Cross of my Heart*, drink these cups:* they are even more green*, my soul! drink them and accept again your childbirth pains* and mine: Be aware, little stubborn one, that they are even stronger!* (Julia) Jesus, clasp my hands!* (Jesus) Little stubborn one, Easter is approaching and the pains are always stronger.* I offer you my Cross, place yourself on it: - but when you aren't able, cry out!* (Julia) Jesus, what have they done to you? you are pouring blood! (Jesus) You are stubborn and capricious, my soul: I tell you to cry out and you ask me what have they done! (Julia) Forgive me, Jesus! (Jesus) I did not want to reproach you, my soul! I accept with love what you offer me but your body is weighed down and you are not able: so cry out, my soul! (Julia) Jesus, I ask your forgiveness, but if it is possible do not make me cry out: do what you want, my Lord and my God!* (Jesus) Good, let us walk together, my soul: make others hold up my Living Gospel always, open-wide your arms on the Holy Wood of the Cross and clasp all your children close to yourself, pray a great deal for my Little John, namely for the Pope, pray for the Priest Sons, my daughter, because the scourges stoop down even more on humanity & on the Church! (Julia) Jesus, mercy! mercy! mercy! (Jesus) My soul, you see there are few of you to drink the green cups: many little Johns fall into my enemy’s net! Pray* pray, my soul: I beg you, be careful not to become proud! (Julia) Jesus, do not let me become so! (Jesus) Do not be afraid, my soul: always stay united to my Cross and be careful not to reveal the secret messages. Be aware that my enemy watches out for your mistakes - stop him with the Holy Shield, fight him with love, prayer and charity: but let it be sincere charity, my children! Love one another and forgive one another mutually. Imitate the Holy Servant of the Cross, become little and poor like he lived, imitate him, my children: contemplate, like he contemplated, the Holy Cross and Mary’s Sorrowful Heart! Now look again into your hearts and take away all that is not pleasing to my Heart: take away hatred! Look again, my children, clean your hearts fully: let the rays of my Love come in!* Accept with love the persecutions that will come: my children, be aware that because of my Name you will still be persecuted, know that on account of loving me you will be persecuted again but do not be frightened, I am always with you and together we are one single family, the Family of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and of Mary’s Immaculate Heart, my Mother and your Mother. BEHOLD, FROM HER "YES" I CAME TO DWELL IN EACH OF YOU: IT IS THE "YES" THAT I WAIT FOR, THE "YES" THAT COMES FROM THE HEART, THE "YES" YOU MUST RAISE UP TO THE FATHER! My children, ANNIHILATE EVIL WITH THE "YES" OF MARY'S IMMACULATE AND SORROWFUL HEART! Now, stop again and look into your hearts - see if the Little Plant of Love has sprouted: water it and make it grow, my children! Now knead the flour-into-dough, but do not be scandalized by what I am saying, dear children! My soul, offer my bread to the Priest sons: knead Mary’s flour-into-dough for them. (Julia) Yes, Jesus! (Jesus) See: Mary too is kneading-dough along with your angel (= it's her 6th miscarried pregnancy, she tells later ... editor). Julia: Yes, Jesus! (Jesus) Now, go ahead, walk on, my soul: bring your children through the Door of Childbirth.* (Julia) Jesus,* there is too much blood:* there is a sea of blood!* Jesus*, it is falling on all sides!* (Jesus) Do not be frightened, my soul!* drink - drink the blood and go forward!* (Julia) Jesus, give me strength and constancy!* (Jesus) My daughter, these are the last times that you will pass through the Door of Blood; after these more chastisements will happen! (Julia) Mercy!* Mercy!* (Jesus) Do not be afraid, my soul, all this must be fulfilled: afterwards the Sun of Mary’s Immaculate Heart will shine forth! Pray because you do not know either the hour or the day: pray - pray and prepare your hearts (she kneels down ... prays with her hands joined ... and drinks mystically ...editor's note). Prepare your hearts, my children, with constant prayer: with the prayer addressed to the Father! Now, we are one single thing because we have prayed, my daughter: lavish your love on humanity, suffer* in the Silence of the Cross, as you know how to do, but make people hold up my Gospel, my Truth & my Love. My children, do not be scandalized by my Love: always be conscious of my living and real presence in your midst! Now, son Paschal, offer me a cup of bread and a glass of wine as a sign of friendship and poverty because it is like this that I come among you: I AM A BABY who comes to dwell in each of you and I COME THROUGH A PIECE OF BREAD AND A GLASS OF WINE. My children, with this I invite you to be poor and disposed to give yourselves to your brothers. Now, MY FATHER, BLESS THE FRUIT OF YOUR LOVE AND GIVE IT TO HUMANITY. Behold, my children, this is my LOVE, this is my PEACE, this is my COMPLETE EASTER that I offer you: receive it and make it grow in each of you! Now, my daughter, offer it to drink to the holy son:* Eternal shepherd of my flock, always pull the Boat loaded with my Gospel and make more knots, my son, don't stop, be strong because we still must combat together, my son. Now drink, let you too drink the Cup of Childbirth and suffer with your spouses: drink!*, my son. My soul, drink also the cup of your childbirth and mine and suffer too with your spouses:* now offer a drink! My son, divide and unite the Love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, eat it and give it to your spouses, make them grow in the Fruitful Love of the Holy Spirit: my son, divide and unite it! Behold, the Bread and Wine that I have given you is the Mystery of the Father’s Fullness: in the eating and drinking be conscious of eating with your Jesus. Stop a moment and contemplate the Bread and Wine that I have given you, my children:* I have eaten and drunk with you, my children! Now prepare your hearts: prepare them! (Julia) Father: my Father! Father: my Father! (Jesus) My daughter and spouse, unite yourself! (Julia) Father, it is sweet to be with you: your Heart is immense! (Jesus) Daughter, unite yourself to the Embrace of the Cross! (Julia) Father! Father! (Jesus) TAKE THIS ALL OF YOU AND EAT IT: THIS IS MY BODY GIVEN TO YOU ALL IN THE FATHER'S GREAT MYSTERY. EAT IT IN ABUNDANCE. TAKE THIS ALL OF YOU AND DRINK FROM IT: THIS IS THE CUP OF MY BLOOD GIVEN TO YOU ALL IN THE GREAT MYSTERY OF THE FATHER.* DRINK IT IN ABUNDANCE BECAUSE IT IS BLOOD OF ETERNAL LIFE. Behold, I am given to each one of you and my Easter is complete because I love you, my children: I love you and want you to be holy in my Name, in my Truth, & in my Fullness of Father, Son and Holy Spirit! Now, my children, I leave you but I will come again among you, do not be afraid. I leave you and sign you with my Holy Kiss, with the Little John Kiss, receive it with love and be conscious of what you receive: be conscious of what my holy son offers you! My son, seal with my Kiss - Little Julia, little Paschal and your children. My children, do not be scandalized by my Love: but be conscious that I am alive and real among you! I bless you with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Praised be the Father Most High always. My children, always praise God for what he gives you moment by moment. Be ready and prepared, my children, because the times are eminent! Now join the Holy Chain and pray slowly with my Holy Fatherly Prayer. Remember always: Lead us not into temptation! Let this word be a trumpet blast for each of you, my children! Now let us pray! Thanks, my children, try again to improve your steps: this is not a reproach, its an invitation of love to make you improve more! Always be children of Light and Peace! Little cross, at the end of the prayer consume my Bread . (Julia) Yes, Jesus! I love you, Jesus! (3). (Jesus) I also love you, beloved spouses of my Heart and I wait for your caprices (we say: I love you, Jesus). (Jesus) Thanks, little ones of my Heart! My daughter, recollect yourself in prayer!* Julia Thanks, Jesus!"
