Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of JesusRight from the very beginning of creation, the Holy Trinity anticipated the moment of the Incarnation of the Word with great joy.
God the Father looked through the entire human race throughout the ages. In his divine will he destined the Blessed Virgin Mary to be my mother and the mother of the new creation of grace.
Sin had to be overcome once and for all, death had to be eliminated so that the children of God could resurrect and live after death, the ancient enemy of the human race had to be restrained and be put to shame, the kingdom of heaven had to be given to those who would accept the Son of God.
The archangel Gabriel came to visit the humble virgin to announce the plan of the Heavenly Father to bring salvation to the world. At the consent of Mary, my beloved mother, the Holy Spirit overshadowed her and she conceived in her womb. The Word of God was now made flesh.
At my arrival into this world, darkness ceased to have power and was forced to give way to light whose author was here now. Sin shivered and began to surrender to my word to allow hearts and souls to be filled with my grace. The world, then perishing by the sinfulness of his people, began its restoration, with the splendor of the new era brought about by my incarnation.
My gratitude as the Word of God is eternal towards my mother, for having clothed my spirit with her flesh, for having given me human existence and for having accompanied me and taken care of me until my death on the cross.
I want you all to look up to her, and accept her as your own mother, imitate her and receive her as your great means of coming closer to me. Learn from her humility and great virtues that she practiced during her entire life.
