February 13, 1986 "Dear children! This Lent is a special incentive for you to change. Start from this moment. Turn off the television and renounce various things that are of no value. Dear children, I am calling you individually to conversion. This season is for you. Thank you for having responded to my call."
March 13, 1986 "Dear children! Today I call you to live Lent by means of your little sacrifices. Thank you for every sacrifice you have brought me.
