During the course of many ecstasies, Marie Julie Jahenny , the holy stigmatic of La Fraudais, was inflamed by the love of the Cross, and Our Lord revealed to her that He has promised a flood of graces to those who would venerate His Holy Cross, and, in particular, special protection at the time of the chastisements. These privileged ones were designated by Our Lord as:
"The family of the Cross whose destiny is to be protected."
Words of Our Lord to Marie-Julie on (July 20, 1882):
"I wish that My male and female servants, and even small children can clothe themselves with a Cross. This Cross will be small and will bear in its middle the appearance of a small white flame. This flame will indicate that they are sons and daughters of the light."
Words of Our Lord:
“My little beloved friends, you will bear on yourselves My Adorable Cross that will preserve you from all sorts of evil, big or small and later I shall bless them.” (Ecstasy July 20, 1882)
“My little beloved friends, it is to give you an idea of what I endure at the thought of so many souls deprived of eternal joy. My little beloved friends, these past days have left so much evil, but those that a coming will be even more terrible because evil will take a terrible intensity, a scope that soon has no measure.
My little beloved friends, you will carry on yourselves My Adorable Cross which will preserve you of every sort and kind of evils, big or small and later I shall bless them.
- Firstly, they will carry the name of "Cross of Pardon."
- Secondly, they will carry the name of "Cross of Salvation."
- Thirdly, they will carry the name of "Cross of Holy Protection."
- Fourthly, they will carry the name of "Cross that Calms Plagues."
- Fifthly, they will carry the prayer:
"O God, Crucified Saviour inflame me with love, faith and courage for the salvation of my brothers."
"My little children, all suffering souls and souls riddled by calamities, all those who will kiss it will have My forgiveness, all those who will touch it will have My forgiveness. The expiation will be long but one day there will be Heaven, Heaven will be opened. I have warned you in advance, My little beloved friends, so that you will not be surprised, so that you have all the time to warn your loved ones and families." (i.e, of the coming chastisements) --
