In scripture, it is written: “Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers. Isiah verse 2.6.
These are important words to understand in a world turning from God. There are many people around the world who allow themselves to be influenced negatively and we have closed our eyes to one of the most challenging issues that Catholics face today and that is societal influences. This is a serious issue today, particularly among young people, and Our Lady has spoken of this directly.
She says: “Satan’s plan over this world is to further us from God every day. He puts himself in the place of God and is destroying everything that is beautiful and good in the souls of each of you. Therefore, little children, arm yourselves with prayer and fasting.”
Because of the devil’s seductive and cunning ways he will send people into our lives that seek to destroy the holiness of our souls. In this modern world, too many victims never realize people in their lives are sent by the evil one.
In the following interview Vicka responds to Fr. Livio during a program on Radio Maria about this difficulty. Readers will be able to see in Vicka an authentic witness of this time of grace, but also in this time of trial. Her profound spirituality and her continuous and intimate union with the Lord and Our Lady is a blessing for the world.
Fr. Livio: Vicka, many people seek you out, including people who don’t believe but would like to. What do you tell them ?
Vicka: We believers should be more aware of how immense the gift of faith is, and feel the need to dedicate time every day to prayer and be good examples for others. The excuses offered by non-believers who think that God should intervene directly are not valid. It takes personal commitment by each person to obtain God’s grace, and God who is Father full of mercy will not fail to answer us.
God is infinite love. We have to do all that we can to obtain His intervention. So, besides praying, we should make an effort to know the revealed Truth and keep away from evil. Unfortunately Satan is a tireless seducer: he hides evil beneath a good appearance; he tempts people, these days especially the young people and weak families, making them prefer fleeting joys, which lead inexorably to tragic unhappiness, thereby inducing them to renounce the immense joy which God grants straight away to those who resist temptation and live their Christian lives in an orderly and honest manner.
Fr. Livio: How can we live this time of grace?
Vicka: Our Lady is very patient. At the end of each message of the 25th, she adds: ‘Thank you for responding to my call.’ and she does this to incite us to correspond with ever more commitment to her requests. We are in the time of the great conversion, and we should take advantage of it. Our Lady also says that many people listen to the messages, but then get tired. She is happier when we take the messages seriously and live them day by day, a little at a time, with constancy, rather than live them with great fervor immediately and then forget them.
We should not worry about tomorrow; but care about living God’s will today, for “this moment” is the most important one of our earthly existence. Thank you for watching and God Bless
