Revival of Faith in Russia
Last night I watched a DVD about Russia and the revival of the Christian faith in that country. It was a beautiful documentary showing the rebuilding of churches that were once in ruins and how people are renewing their faith. The Russian people were rediscovering religious devotions.
As I was watching this documentary, I was so joyous that I said to our Blessed Mother, “O Blessed Mother, your Immaculate Heart triumphed in Russia! It was all your doing. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am so happy for the people of Russia.”
This morning I attended Holy Mass and offered Russia to our Lord Jesus. I said, “Lord, I thank You for the renewal of faith in Russia.”
Suddenly, our Lord came, and He smiled and said, “Valentina, it is good. Russia suffered for many, many years; its people were not free in their religion, they were persecuted for their faith. Small numbers still kept their faith, but in secret.”
“Valentina, with the revival of their strong faith, the devil was kicked right out of Russia! Guess where the devil went? He went into western countries. In western countries today, people lack faith. It is so sad how they do not believe in God anymore nor practice their faith anymore. They have a golden opportunity to practice their faith; they have peace, there is no war, and being blessed with having everything, but they neglect that which is most important, that is their faith.”
“What is the use to have everything in your life but to have no faith, then you are alive, but you are dead spiritually. How sad that makes Me. Pray that western countries of the world will wake up again to practice their faith.”
Lord Jesus have mercy on us. I pray that the western world will wake up soon.
