"My daughter, only Christ could and can work the continuous miracle of the Sanctifying Presence of His Church on the earth.  The Church was consecrated by a bishop and was blessed for the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

                "Notice, little one, that in the Middle Ages, men and women were separated.  Women were placed on the north side and men on the south side [of the churches].  This practice lasted through the Middle Ages and is still recommended in Canon Law, but in the New Era, it was suspended.  Remember, little one, that Jesus first built His Church with Peter at the head and that he was later succeeded by the apostles in order, after Peter.

                "The Church is Christ, Who established it.  All collections given to the Church went to charities everywhere, after paying fees to the workers and stipends to the clergy.

                "The Church is protected, My child.  Only the Catholic and apostolic Church, which is universal, is for all kinds of peoples, races and creeds.  It is for everyone, and that is why it is called universal.

    "The Church of Christ is Divine and Immaculate; Perfect.  But it is also human and It can be imperfect at any moment through some fault of man, because a priest, a bishop or a pope can make mistakes.  But that does not stop It from being Holy, because the Church is Christ, It is the Holy Spirit and the Spouse Who waits for Jesus to return to rescue Its Holiness.

    "My daughter, Jesus knew very well that you need security and certainty because there have been and will always be ravenous wolves disguised as sheep; demons disguised as angels of light.

    "The Church is Divine; the Church of Christ is Holy for several reasons: because of Its soul, which is the Holy Spirit Himself; because It's head is Christ, the Holy of Holies; because Its center is the sanctification of souls through the doctrine of its sacraments; because of the Eucharistic sacrifice when He offers Himself continuously to God the Father as the Holy and Immaculate Host; and because many of Its members are holy, poor in spirit, pure of heart and persecuted because of His Justice.

    "There are many saints who are canonized martyrs, and there are others from the past and from today who are anonymous.  Jesus Himself expressed His desire that we would form one flock, one shepherd and one Church, one Lord, one Spirit, one Faith, one Baptism, with one God for all.

    "Pray, My little ones, for the priests who are persecuted and for the Church, which is Holy, Catholic, Apostolic and Roman.  Amen.

    "Write from St. John , Chapter 10, Verse 16:  'And other sheep I have, that are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice, and there shall be one fold and one shepherd.'

    "Write from St. Matthew, Chapter 16, Verse 18:  'And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.'

    "I love you and I bless you.  I am your Celestial Father, your Divine Mercy.  Amen."
