People work hard. They toil all day long, thinking that they will accomplish great things. Then, as the years go on, they realize that they have toiled all night and caught nothing. This is the way Satan confuses people. He places goals in their minds of great accomplishments. He tells them that they have great talents and can bring about great things. He gets them off the track. He points them to goals that they can accomplish with their own talents. Let me describe the problem.
The world today is so complicated and contains so much power over people’s inner lives that man no longer perceives correctly. There is a total disorientation of man’s thoughts and feelings. The rational word, the logical conclusion and all the appeals to the mind, are of little value. All is disordered. Logical truths had power when man was seeking truth. Now, life is disordered. The immediate gratification takes precedence. The latest sensual images, these are the lord of daily life. I say this again. Man’s life on earth is in such a disarray that approaching him with logical truths has little appeal. Those truths cannot touch his heart. They are too far away. They are like the shoreline to a man who is drowning in the middle of an ocean.
I have chosen another way. I come as a mother. I approach. I come close. I speak. I warm the heart. I attract. I give hope. Man’s heart experiences a new power, a new attraction. Later I will give the logical truths. They are like the beach for a man who has been rescued. For now, the beach is too far away and man is being carried out to sea. I say this is for you, O reader. If you find yourself at sea, call upon me. I am the star of the sea. I will come to you and we will make our way to the shore.
Comment: The logical truths of the Catholic Church provide the firmest foundation, but right now modern man needs a lifeguard.
