"Dear children, I came to you with open arms, so that I could take you all into my arms, under my mantle. I cannot do this while your hearts are filled with false light and false idols. Clean them and let my angels sing in them. Then, I will take you under my mantle and give you my Son, true peace, and happiness. Do not wait my children. Thank you!" August 2, 2005
Our Lady speaks from her great love in this message. She says she has come with open arms! She wants to take us into her arms, under her mantle. This is the desire of every mother with her children. She wants to provide warmth and protection, security and affection for her children. But if her children's hearts do not want her love and protection, she cannot give it.
False lights and false idols. These lead us away from Our Lady. False lights are false truths. They are teachings that are not based on Jesus. And false idols are those things that become god for us, ever so unwittingly. They lure us into a relationship of dependence with them, cutting us off from the true God who created us and sustains us. These false gods are addicting and dehumanizing. Our Lady cannot protect us when we are chasing after these false lights and idols.
I found a beautiful entry in St. Faustina's diary that gives a clue about these angels singing in our hearts. St. Faustina was seeking God with all her heart one day, feeling that she would die if she did not find Him. And here is what happened:
