During my meditation last evening, after having prayed the Rosary in front of the Blessed Sacrament with my wife, I picked up a book of compiled Marian revelations (from an extremely reputable and approved source), and, praying to be guided by the Holy Spirit, randomly chose a page to read from.  What follows is the message I was given:

The Great Sign in Heaven

“Look to me, beloved sons and you who are consecrated to me, in the great battle which you are fighting, under the orders of your heavenly Leader.  I am the Woman Clothed with the Sun.

“I am the great sign which appears in heaven.

“Today you are calling to mind my last apparition, which took place in Fatima in the Cova da Iria, and which was confirmed by the miracle of the sun.  This miracle shows you, in an extraordinary way, that I am the Woman Clothed with the Sun.  This miracle invites you to look to me as to the great sign which appears in heaven.

“I am a great sign of battle between me and my Adversary, between the Woman and the Dragon, between my army and the army guided by the enemy of God.  You are entering into the decisive times of the battle.

“You are preparing to live through the most difficult hours and the greatest of sufferings.  It is necessary that all of you come as quickly as possible to form part of my army.  For this, I again invite my children to consecrate themselves to my Immaculate Heart and to entrust themselves to me as little children.

“Today, I am extending this invitation of mine, above all, to the little ones, to the poor, to those who are least, to the sick and to the sinners.  Come, all of you, to fight beneath the sign of your Immaculate Mother, because it is with the weakness of the little ones, with the trust of the poor and with the sufferings of the sick that I am today fighting my great battle.

“I am a great sign of victory.

“I am the victorious Woman,  In the end, the power of Satan will be destroyed; and I myself will bind him with my chain [the chain of the Holy Rosary];  and I will shut him up within his kingdom of death and of eternal torment, from which he will not be able to get out.

“In the world, there will reign the one and only Conqueror of sin and death, the King of the entire created universe, Jesus Christ.

“Let yourselves be now signed with my seal.

“In these times, the Angles of Light are going about the world to mark, with the sign of the cross, all those who form part of my victorious Army.  Against these, the Star of the Abyss will have no power, even if they will be called to great sufferings, and some to shed their own blood.

“But it will be with the great sufferings of these children of mine that I will obtain my greatest victory.

“Today, I am inviting you to look to me, as to the great sign which is appearing in heaven, in order to live in trust and in serenity, as you are enlightened by my own light and signed by my motherly seal” (Gobbi, S. (2009). To the Priests, Our Lady’s Beloved Sons. Ed. 18; Message 458, pgs. 697-98.).
