In his account, Msgr. Cardarelli writes:
“The Lord insisted so much on having a little church built in the place so cherished by Him, where He first appeared in Gallinaro, which would serve as a “Cradle for Him”, because from it he desired to grant heavenly treasures to all souls“.
With reference to Maria G. Norcia, he states that:
“Trust in Giuseppina’s mission is due to the spiritual fruits this mission itself has produced, in addition to the persistent and increasing influx of all who direct their steps to the “Mystic Cradle” of Gallinaro, where Baby Jesus infuses trust, soothes pains, irradiates light, gives back faith, peace, love and leads souls to profound and stable conversion”.
Finally, he concludes by writing what now appears as a prophecy:
“Of course, there will always be someone who, having little faith, will have doubts concerning that Cradle; or someone who will commiserate her who has received the heavenly charge of making the Cradle shine before the eyes of human creatures, groping in the darkness of iniquity, needing exceptional signs of divine mercy in order to escape it. But these deriders are not aware that their rationalistic certainty is opposed to the attestation of the Holy Spirit, that “as long as man thinks that human reason can be the measure of all things, he will never understand spiritual realities.” (1Cor 2:12-16). They are fallacious judges and should not be followed. Spiritual gifts or charisms, especially if they manifest themselves in God-fearing persons, must not be prejudicially refused in a hasty and injurious way, because this would lead to an aprioristic and heretical negation of the action of the Holy Spirit in the Church“.
