(Our Lady, in private revelation given to a Benedictine monk)
Turn to me in every need, great and small. Trust me to arrange all things to your advantage and to the glory of my Divine Son (cf. John 2:1-11). Share your life with me. Entrust to me your concerns, your worries, and your fears. When you are in need of anything, be it spiritual or temporal, turn to me. I am your Mother of Perpetual Help. I am the Mediatrix of all graces. All good things are mine to bestow on whomsoever I will. This is my Son’s gift to me, and the Will of the Father.
Having stood with my Son as He hung upon the Cross, I stand with Him now in glory. Mine it is to dispense to all souls the fruits of His redemption. To me, His Heart is ever open, and I draw out from the wound in His side an infinity of graces and mercies for souls. The Heart of my Son is an inexhaustible treasury and I am its keeper. Those who desire anything from the Heart of my Son can come to me, and I will obtain it for them and give it to them with my own hands.

(Our Lady, in private revelation given to Luisa Piccarreta)
If you knew my anxiety, my ardent sighs, and also the tears I shed for my children! If you knew how I burn with desire that you listen to my lessons, [to] all of Heaven, and learn to live from the Divine Will!
In this book, you will see wonders; you will find a Mama who loves you so much as to sacrifice her own Beloved Son for you, in order to allow you to live of that very life from which she lived on earth.
Do not give me this sorrow—do not reject me. Accept this gift of Heaven I am bringing you; welcome my visit and my lessons. Know that I will go all over the world; I will go to each individual, to all families, to religious communities, to every nation, to all peoples, and if needed, I will go about for entire centuries until, as Queen, I have formed my people, and as Mother, my children, who may know the Divine Will and let it reign everywhere. Here is the purpose of this book. Those who will welcome it with love will be the first fortunate children to belong to the Kingdom of the Divine Fiat, and with gold characters, I will write their names in my Maternal Heart.
Do you see, my daughter? That same Infinite Love of God, Who wanted to use me in the Redemption to make the Eternal Word descend upon earth, calls me into the field once again, entrusting to me the difficult task, the Sublime Mandate to form the children of the Kingdom of His Divine Will on earth. Therefore, with maternal care, I put myself to work, preparing for you the way which will lead you to this Happy Kingdom.
