How to get to hell

Blessed Jacinta Marto, who died before her 10th birthday in a Lisbon orphanage understood Christ's message of suffering, and that suffering is redemptive. Which is why she accepted her suffering, and prayed constantly for the salvation of souls.

Blessed Jacinta told Mother Godinho at the orphanage that "The sins [that] cause most souls to go to hell are the sins of the flesh."

Mother Godinho asked Blessed Jacinta if she understood what it meant to be pure. Jacinta replied, "To be pure in body is to keep chastity. To be pure in soul is not to commit sins, not to look at what one should not see...."

I would argue that this saying from a 9-year old is on a par with St. John Chrysostom, Doctor of both Roman Catholic and Orthodox Churches, who indicated that NOT sinning is like performing a miracle when he said If you draw back your eyes from an harlot, and from beauty not your own, you have opened them when they were blind.

Blessed Jacinta also revealed that the Blessed Virgin Mary also said:

Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much.

Many marriages are not good; they do not please Our Lord and are not of God.

Priests must be pure, very pure. They should not busy themselves with anything except what concerns the Church and souls. The disobedience of priests to their superiors and to the Holy Father is very displeasing to Our Lord.

The Blessed Mother can no longer restrain the hand of her Divine Son from striking the world with just punishment for its many crimes.

Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. tell them to ask graces from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
