Dear children,

I thank for your dreams and your prayers that you have collected in this basket that you have given me. Thank you very much! We will present it together to Jesus: He knows them better than all of us; He knows that which is in the depths of our heart. Especially with you children, Jesus has a special bond, He is always close to you. Now, let us recite together a prayer to our Lady in front of this statue: Our Lady with Jesus.

Hail Mary,…

May Almighty God bless you…

Thank you very much!
