"In order to give the suffering and crucified Church of your time my motherly help and a safe refuge, I have brought the Marian Movement of Priests into being and have spread it through every part of the world by means of my book, which traces out for you the road along which you must journey in order to spread my light. With this book, I teach you to live the consecration to my Immaculate Heart with the simplicity of children, in a spirit of humility, of poverty, of trust and of filial abandonment."

(Message 604, December 31, 1997)

It is the Work that Our Lady is carrying out . . .

(1) …to bring the message of Fatima to its fulfillment for a spiritual renewal of the Church and all humanity
  "I have caused to spring up here, for twenty-five years now, my Marian Movement of Priests, so that the message of Fatima, often contested and rejected by many, might in your days come to its complete fulfillment." (594l)

The Fatima message's fulfillment is necessary for you, my children, threatened and stricken, so that you may attain salvation. Its fulfillment is necessary for the Church, so wounded and crucified, so that from its painful and bloody trial it might emerge all beautiful, without spot or wrinkle, in imitation of its heavenly Mother. Its fulfillment is necessary for all humanity, so that it may return to the arms of its Father and come to know the new times of its full communion of love and of life with its Lord and God.
(594m)
 
(2) …to form her faithful remnant
  It is my work, which I myself am now carrying out, in order to gather from all sides the little remnant which will remain faithful to Jesus and to his Gospel, to the Pope and to the Church united with him. (497e)

"If indeed his return is close at hand, then my motherly action becomes more concerned and vigorous, in order to assist all my children to remain ever in the truth of the faith. This is why I have asked you to consecrate yourselves to my Immaculate Heart. This is why, in these times of yours, I have spread everywhere my Marian Movement of Priests: to form the little flock, reunited in the prayer of the cenacles and watchful in expectation - the flock gathered together and formed by me to ever preserve the true faith.

Thus, when the Son of Man returns, He will still find the faith on earth in all those who will have consecrated themselves to me, allowing themselves to be gathered together in the heavenly garden of my Immaculate Heart."
(420ij, March 13, 1990)
 

(3) …to conquer Satan
  It is my work, which I am carrying out in every part of the world in order to conquer Satan, in the great battle against all the wicked spirits, because in the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph.

 

(4) …to spread the truth and to bring us to a greater unity with the Pope and the Church united to him
  It is my work, which I am accomplishing to spread the truth in these times of great apostasy, to bring you to greater unity with the Pope in these days of division and of widespread rebellion, to lead you along the way of grace and holiness amidst the general spread of sin and impurity.
(Message 497ehi, "My Work", June 19, 1993)

Her Book

The above are excerpts from the book, "To the Priests, Our Lady's Beloved Sons", which contains "interior locutions", messages which Fr. Gobbi began receiving from the Blessed Mother in 1973.

The book is the instrument chosen by Our Lady to carry her voice to the hearts and souls of her beloved children, a guide for helping them to live the consecration to her Immaculate Heart. In these messages, she manifests her maternal plan to lead all souls back to Jesus.

It [the book] has been the instrument for carrying to the hearts and souls of so many beloved children the voice of the heavenly Mother, the manifestation of my maternal plan, my invitation to receive you all within the refuge of my Immaculate Heart. (…)

What do I say in this book of mine? (…)

I tell you the things which I have most on my Heart, because they are the very things which Jesus has told you in the Gospel, which today should be lived with the simplicity of little ones, with the ardor of martyrs, and with the fidelity of courageous witnesses: it should be lived to the letter!
Accordingly I am calling you to prayer, to penitence, to mortification, to the practice of virtue, to trust, to hope, to the exercise of an ever more perfect charity.


…My only concern is that you live everything I have told you. Then your hearts will be inflamed with love, your souls will be illumined by my light, and I will transform you interiorly to lead you to do each day what pleases the Heart of Jesus.

If you are consecrated to me, I take you just as you are, with your limitations, your defects and sins, your frailty, but then each day I transform you to bring you to be in accordance with the plan which God has entrusted to my Immaculate Heart.

(Message 282, "My Book", January 21, 1984)

What does she ask of us?

(1) Consecration to her Immaculate Heart
(2) Cenacles of Prayer

In this book, she tells us that "her times have arrived." She is announcing to her priests and faithful the coming of a new era of grace and holiness for the Church and the world, and as a preparation, she is asking that the whole Church consecrate themselves to her Immaculate Heart and gather in cenacles of prayer with her.

(1) Consecration to her Immaculate Heart
  It [the Marian Movement of Priests] is the message of Fatima which is reaching its fulfillment and is being realized everywhere, through the merciful action of your heavenly Mother. Through it I have asked for the consecration to my Immaculate Heart, as a sure means of obtaining conversion of heart and of life, and of leading humanity back along the road of its full return to the Lord.

 

(2) The Cenacles
"It [the Marian Movement of Priests] is the message of Fatima which is being fulfilled in the spread, now on a world-wide level, of the cenacles which I have asked of you, in order to gather you together in prayer, made with me and through me. With great joy I accept today from your hands, my little son, the homage which you are offering to me in these cenacles, which are being multiplied everywhere, among priests and faithful, among children, youth and above all in families.

With these cenacles, you are able to obtain the grace of conversion for many poor sinners, especially for those most in need of divine mercy.

With these cenacles, you offer a great force of intercession and of reparation to your heavenly Mother, who has intervened many times, in an extraordinary way, to shorten the painful time of the great purifying trial.

With these cenacles, you invoke the gift of the second Pentecost, which is now close at hand, because my Immaculate Heart has become the new spiritual cenacle, where this divine prodigy for the Church and all humanity will be accomplished." (*594f-i)

(*Message 594 was received on May 8, 1997, in Fatima, Portugal on the Twenty-fifth Anniversary of the Birth of the Marian Movement of Priests)
