on January 10, 1988
I went to bed early because I was feeling too
uncomfortable in my body, but my mind was filled with the thoughts about
the Blessed Mother and suddenly jumped out of the bed and rushed to the
Chapel at 11:15 p.m. to pray the rosary. I only prayed one decade by 00:40
a.m., because I was praying and crying with the Blessed Mother.
At 00:40 a.m., I entered an ecstasy and the Blessed Mother
wearing a crown handed to me the Baby Jesus who was not wearing any
clothes and told me to become a baby like the Baby Jesus. After the Baby
Jesus touched me softly several times, the Blessed Mother received Him
back and said, ŇUnless you become a baby, it will be difficult to enter
At that moment, the Blessed Mother looked as the weeping
Blessed Mother of Naju. She looked extremely beautiful and her lips were
full of smiles and her face was overflowing with love and intimate
friendliness. On her head was a laurel crown with twelve stars radiating
THE BLESSED MOTHER:
Daughter! Forget your weakness and remember my love. As my
love will sustain you in your weakness, keep your heart empty. Only then,
would I be able to work in you. Give me even what afflicts you now. There
are always some temptations to overcome in this world.
Daughter! You know that the children who love me will be
tested a lot, don't you? Yes, you are going through pains of labor now. I
wish there will be more children who can suffer such pains, but most of
them hurt me while suffering. There can be birth because of the pains of
labor that you suffer now. The pains of labor cannot be avoided, but offer
up your pains well thinking about the rewards that I have prepared for
you. You need to know that, as gold becomes purer in the melting furnace,
everything can become clean in love. My little soul! However many the
merits you have accumulated may be, if you speak ill of and criticize
others while neglecting little matters, your merits will crumble one after
another. Be slow in opening your mouth and control your tongue wisely.
When you want to judge someone but refrain from doing so with love, you
earn a merit. Be much holier in your speaking and conduct.
Daughter! You feel very anxious now. I am anxious, too. I
feel much pain in my Heart, because my intensely beloved children, who
should climb up into my love, are not seeking the treasures of Heaven but
are trying to become higher, are jealous and envious, and thus have doubts
about my mercy which is harming their own souls. My daughter, practice
humility. This will give me an especially precious joy. Make efforts never
to become higher. Your mortification, kindness, sacrifices, and
reparations become a fragrant oil for my wounds.
My daughter! Give more love to my children who work with
you. The devils of pride, envy and resentment have their eyes on them,
because they are trying to become higher. Therefore, you must give love to
them through sacrifices. Didn't I tell you that all the devils will
surrender before love? Unite. Love one another and thus be united. There
is something I want to show you. You know well my intention to make known
to everyone through you.
The Blessed Mother showed me a scene. There was a high
mountain. There were fourteen stairs on the mountain and, on the both
sides of the stairs, there were trees. Those trees bore fruits whenever we
accumulated more merits. However, when we judged others with our mouths or
conducts, the fruits of merits fell from the trees. There were some people
who slipped down from the middle of the mountain. There were others who
were not climbing the mountain straight up but were going round the
mountain. It was truly difficult to climb to the top of the stairs.
Above the fourteen stairs is Heaven. There is God the
Father, and Jesus, the Blessed Mother, St. Joseph, the Saints and Angels
welcome us with loud, joyful cheers. They are looking at every conduct of
each of us not omitting even one. The largest fruits are born when we
repent. When we graciously offer up pains and offer up sacrifices for
other people, the light shines on them and the fruits of good works are
born for us. Those who die after climbing even one step goes to purgatory.
If one reaches the fourteenth step, it is almost Heaven. The fifteenth
step is Heaven. I was trembling seeing so many people falling headlong
from the stairs. The Blessed Mother said:
THE BLESSED MOTHER:
Did you see, daughter! It is easy for anyone to start
climbing the stairs, but it is so difficult to climb all the fourteen
stairs. Therefore, tell everyone to be careful not to fall off the stairs
and make all the accumulated good works collapse. Good-bye! An-nyoung!
