Children, it is I your Heavenly Mother, my dear little ones. Children you must begin each day with your hearts open and ready to receive my Son. Be eager to accept your graces as well as your crosses. I tell you this because I understand how difficult a cross is to carry. My children when you struggle do not become discouraged. Trust that you are loved. My children, I bore many sufferings while on Earth. Many trials were placed on my path. You must learn to trust so that even in the midst of suffering there is still great joy. Joy in knowing that in every trial mercy comes. With every cross grace abounds. This is only true when you accept your crosses with a heart that is trusting of God. Those who lack trust only find crosses to be a scourge. They only feel pain and bear their pain with anger and sorrow. My children look at the weight of my Son’s cross. He bore the weight of mankind’s sins. Yet he did not bear his cross with anger or resentment. He accepted everything with great love and humility. My children the first step in carrying a cross is to trust in God. He alone can bring you grace and comfort. God is love. Those who place themselves in his heart will find joy even in great sufferings. My children seek the will of God by giving him your yes. Then you will truly be happy. I love you and I give you my motherly blessings. Know this.
