“Mary, Consoler” to Valeria Copponi on May 19th, 2021:
My dearly beloved little children, I thank you very much for your prayers and I invite you to continue like this. I am listening to you; do what you can to follow my advice. I remind you that the prayer which is most pleasing to God is your participation in the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass. You have understood full well that I said “sacrifice”, not “remembrance.” My Son is still lifted up to His Father in the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass. Little children, nourish yourselves with His Body, for only thus can you face the difficulties of life. You know that these times in which you are living are very difficult, which is why I repeat to you: nourish yourselves with Jesus every day. Only He can still give some joy to your existence. Jesus is the true Life: without Him you will die to eternal life. What is the use of living the human life if then you lose that eternity?  If you begin a path, you do so to reach a destination; but what would be the use of stopping halfway? I say this to you because, at the moment, so many of my children are stopping halfway through their journey. I cannot bear this: I want you all to be with me, so you who have understood my suffering should offer your Masses especially for those of your brothers and sisters who are stopping halfway. With His perennial offering to the Father, my Son is simply making the path that leads to heaven easier for you, meaning the path to true life — eternal and full of joy. You who are my joy, continue helping me and I assure you of my intercession before the Father. I bless you and thank you.
Valeria’s Copponi’s story of receiving locutions from heaven started when she was in Lourdes accompanying her military husband on pilgrimage. There she heard a voice that she identified as her guardian angel, telling her to get up. He then presented her to Our Lady, who said, “You will be my cenacle”—a term she only understood years later when a priest used it in the context of the prayer group she started in home city of Rome, Italy. These meetings, at which Valeria delivered her messages, were first held twice monthly on Wednesdays, then weekly at the request of Jesus, whom she says that she saw at the church of Sant’Ignazio in connection with a meeting with the American Jesuit, Fr. Robert Faricy. Valeria’s calling has been confirmed by various supernatural healings, including one from multiple sclerosis, which also involved the miraculous water at Collevalenza, the ‘Italian Lourdes’ and home to the Spanish nun, Mother Speranza di Gesù (1893-1983), currently up for beatification.
It was Fr. Gabriele Amorth who encouraged Valeria to diffuse her messages outside the prayer cenacle. The attitude of the clergy is predictably mixed: some priests are skeptical, while others participate fully in the cenacle.
The following is from Valeria Copponi’s own words, as they are stated on her website and translated from the Italian: http://gesu-maria.net/. Another English translation can be found at her English site here: http://keepwatchwithme.org/?p=22
“I am an instrument Jesus uses to make us taste his Word for our times. While I am not worthy of this, I accept with great fear and responsibility this great gift, handing myself over totally to His Divine Will. This extraordinary charism is called “locutions.” This involves interior words that come, not from the mind in the form of thoughts, but from the heart, as if a voice “spoke” them from within.
When I begin to write (let us say, under dictation), I am not aware of the sense of the whole. Only at the end, when rereading, do I understand the meaning of the entirety of the words “dictated” to me more or less quickly in a theological language that I do not understand. Initially, the thing at which I marveled the most was this “clean” writing without deletions or corrections, more perfect and more exact than an ordinary dictation, without any fatigue on my part; all comes out smoothly. But we know that the Spirit blows where and when He wills, and so with great humility and acknowledging that without Him we can do nothing, we dispose ourselves to listen to the Word, Who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”
