Over the abyss of spiritual darkness, our faith in Christ allows us to cling to a thread of hope
I was clinging by faith alone, clinging to a thin thread of hope, suspended over a vast abyss.
The one who, after death, rejects God, 'falls' like a stone into the infinite abyss.
After the 'doorway' of our death, Christ invites the one who loves Him to step out, and cross the abyss, confident of being carried.
In offering Christ's Sacrifice, we are as close to God as it is possible to be, our prayer leaping across the abyss, to the Father
It was as though Christ and our Lady were together at the world's edge, as He died to save sinners from the abyss.
Our Lady endured grief and horror, watching her son at the very edge of the Abyss, before she was eventually glorified as the Mother of God.
We can offer, to the Father, Christ's perfect prayer. Christ is the Word which is powerful enough to cross the abyss.
I was given a glimpse, across the Abyss, of the infinite glory and majesty of God the Holy Trinity.
Those who refuse to follow the safe way into Heaven will eventually languish, far from Heaven's light, in the depths of the dark Abyss - by their own free, tragic choice.
A prayer for someone far from God can help them be drawn out of the abyss of sin, by God's grace, if they are willing to respond
As people move towards death, and the Abyss, some cannot see the bridge to the other side. Others know where to find Christ, the bridge, and walk steadily towards Him. Some people have heard about the bridge but have allowed themselves to be swept away, in serious sin, towards disaster.
Some people do not believe in the 'bridge to Heaven', which is Christ; or they allow themselves to be carried away by the crowd to follow another, Godless way of life. At death, suddenly arriving at the Abyss, and nowhere near the 'bridge', they plunge to their doom. Nothing can stop them from falling. They have nothing to hold onto.
Christ showed me plainly that there is only one Way from earth to Heaven: the narrow way made by Him, so that all Who will trust in Him can follow the Way and arrive safely in Glory. Those who refuse to follow the safe Way inevitably fall, at death, into the dark Abyss.
There is only one Way across the dark abyss which separates earth from Heaven. Christ has made that Way, through His Incarnation, and from all that followed in His earthly life.
People who say they love God but who refuse to do His will are as if 'hiding' away from His sight, in a dark pit. As long as they stay 'hidden', they are not yet walking on the bridge to Heaven, the 'bridge' made by Christ across the Abyss.
Each of us must one day stand before God, to give an account of our life on Earth, for our 'particular judgement'. Each person who is a true child of God will enter Heaven, or be helped to prepare for Heaven. Those who have no love for God or their neighbour cannot enter Heaven or Purgatory. Their journey ends in the Abyss.
The Lord showed me the Cross at the bottom of a steep slope. All who held onto the Cross were saved from falling into the Abyss beyond, which is the place where sinners go who have not repented. By a living faith in Christ, we can be freed from the fear of death and Hell.
I saw a person clinging to the wall of the Abyss, hurling insults up towards Christ, yet in danger - at the least violent movement - of falling into the depths. He needs our prayers.
A person who is trapped in serious sin is like someone trapped on a small ledge, deep down in the Abyss. Only by a short step will she arrive in Hell, one day, unless she repents first. The prayers others offer for her are like a life-line sent down for her to grasp.
