The Truth Shall Make You Free
Maria says: (Maria Mother and Teacher, Vol. 1) "My children, with what joy and with what tenderness I clasp you to my heart. You are my little children, the beloved of my heart. You are those children that I go on instructing, to whom I go on revealing the arcane beauties of the things of God.
The divine revelation that was communicated at the beginning of the world and which was handed down through the centuries by means of that beloved people from whom was to be born through me my divine Son, was completed with the preaching of Jesus and the apostles, who from him had learned the truth.
I then, having lived beside him and having drawn at the source of truth, was able, after his death, to reveal many things to the nascent Church.
Even if truth remains immutable in its dogmas, I continue my work in the Church. I call my most affectionate children and I make them understand with clarity what seems shrouded in mystery.
Where I enter, light enters, and the divine truths, which remain hidden to the wise and the great of the earth, are revealed to my little children, the humble, the simple, who welcome them with joy and serenity.
Some however, are called and then remain distrustful and the word does not penetrate. They act like those who, having heard the teaching of my Jesus, are astonished, but then said: "We do not understand this language", and went away.
But to whoever gives credence and works in conformity and with the good will of simple souls, and takes the trouble to make the truth known also to others, I give a great joy.
It has been said to you that the truth shall make you free. Yes, it is true, since truth is light, and when you possess it you walk securely. Truth saves you, children, the truth is one. There are no contrary things equally true, since only one or the other can be true.
I go about explaining to you everything in the simple manner with which a mother talks to her children; but the truth is always that, children, and whoever possesses the truth, possesses God in their heart.
My children, in the study of truth there is the encounter between Heaven and earth, between God and the soul, and I am like the intermediary. Love, therefore, to be instructed in the truths of the faith. Make it your daily nourishment and you shall have so much joy in your heart, because possessing God, who is the highest happiness, you ought to be happy with his same joy.
Children, know that no matter how great the evils are, that shroud the world and torment families and all men, faith in God, in his love, trust and abandonment in me, who is his Mother, all can be cured.
My children, I bless you one by one and I give you consolation and grace. Bring me with you in the world. I burn with the desire to make everyone happy, but no one can be if he shall be averse to the truth."
