    Other side also would not welcome you. Please prepare and come.

    Too many suicidals in the recent past whether they are prepared for meeting eternity or not.

    Very useful beautiful prayer available on the net To LIVE.

    Crusade Prayer (45) Prayer to conquer negative thoughts.

    O Jesus, I know very little about You, but please help me to open my heart to allow You to come into my soul, so that You can heal me, comfort me, and fill me with Your Peace.
    Help me to feel joy, to conquer all negative thoughts, and to learn the way to make me understand how to please You, so that I can enter Your New Paradise, where I can live a life of love, joy and wonder with You, forever and ever.

    If unsuccessful, consoling prayer for their loved ones to pray for the souls departed.

    If you have to face death or if a loved one has to face death then always turn to Me, your Jesus, to help. When you do I will lift you in spirit, wipe away your tears, banish all fear from your hearts when you recite this prayer.

    Crusade Prayer (142) Preparing for death
    My dearest Jesus, forgive me my sins. Cleanse my soul and prepare me to enter Your Kingdom.
    Grant me the Graces to prepare for my unification with You. Help me to overcome any fear.
    Grant me the courage to prepare my mind and my soul, so that I am fit to stand before You.
    I love You. I trust in You. I give You myself in body, mind and soul for eternity. Let Your Will be mine and release me from pain, doubts or confusion. Amen.

    My Dear, I don't know either! But,

    Jesus on why to teach about life after death to humanity.

    Message to Valentina, Sydney.

    8 May 2019

    OUR LORD: “Valentina My Child, I come to tell you that humanity is reaching a point of self-destruction. No one believes in God anymore. Only a small majority do. The rest of the world lives carelessly from day to day, planning how much money they will make, becoming greedier and greedier, and committing sin and living in sin.”

    He said, “Never before in the history of mankind has it been so bad, as it is now in the present time. I myself am breaking in two from sorrow. You saw Purgatory how full it is and how overcrowded it is.”

    “Many are dying with no knowledge of God. These people are not bad. I cannot throw them into Hell. I feel compassion towards them, because there is nobody to teach them about life after death. I blame Churches and My Shepherds for not telling people the Truth.”

    “But let me remind you! Heaven, Hell and Purgatory exist!”

    “Why don’t they teach people? They don’t tell them the Truth because that would offend them!”

    I feel sorry for this Ashok, who jumped from Chandragiri bridge. Has it become a trend for people to jump from bridges to end their lives. As far as I know, there were already three people who jumped from bridges. I hope this person's body is found.
