St. Nick or Jesus? Whose coming to your Home?

A review of Advent preparation –

“Dear Children!  Today I call you to prepare yourselves for the coming of Jesus.  In a special way prepare your hearts.  May holy confession be the first act of conversion for you and then, dear children, decide for holiness.  May your conversion and decision for holiness begin today and not tomorrow.  Little children, I call you all to the way of salvation and I desire to show you the way to Heaven.  That is why dear children, be mine and decide with me for holiness.  Little children, accept prayer with seriousness and pray, pray, pray.  Thank you for having responded to my call.”  (11/25/98)

As I continue to reflect on the recent message of Our Lady today in my prayer, I asked in my heart, what could this message mean, especially for me.Our Lady put it very strong in my heart that she was asking me to pray for the conversion of sinners, and that men would reconcile their hearts with God, and put trust in His mercy.

And then this message was given as I posted above, which Our Lady gave to the world about the same time of year in 1998.  Our Mother desires that we prepare for the coming of Jesus in our hearts. 

Advent is a time of expectation, and a time of penance.  It is a time to put away the old and ring in the new.Blessed Mother used very strong words this year in her message at the beginning of this Advent season.  She sees death in the hearts of her children when she is looking at us.  Death is serious my friends.  We are dying in our sins, and have lost hope.  Our souls are hungering and thirsting for the love of God whether we are aware of it or not. 

If we are wondering why we cannot be happy, it is because we are lacking God in our hearts.  If we wonder why everything is always going wrong in our lives, we are lacking peace and security and do not have Jesus as the foundation of our faith.  We are putting our faith in worldly things, or material needs.  We find security in money, or in our jobs.  We are a very disordered race.

Today our Mother is calling us to go to confession with great trust in the mercy of God.  I just posted in the previous article the voice of Jesus in Divine Mercy, and the great power and gift He has given to the world.  There is no sin that is so great that the Lord cannot forgive or heal you from. 

The only sin that is un-forgiven is the one who has lost hope in the mercy of God, and has fallen to despair or the one who is presumptious of the mercy of God without repenting. These souls are already living hell on earth and steeped in their own grief and self pity, most likely filled with all kinds of fears.

Decide for conversion!  Decide for the path of holiness and begin today!  Blessed Mother said, “Do not wait for tomorrow…”  For some it may be too late, as your life can be taken from you at any time.  Live today as though you were going to die tomorrow. 

If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, who is the one you need to reconcile with before you face God?

If you knew your were going to die tomorrow, what would you do different in your behavior before facing God?

Why my friends do we put off tomorrow what must be done today? Decide now for holiness.

Every human being is called to holiness. There are no exceptions. The Lord said, “be perfect, for I am perfect.” (Jas. 1:4-5, Mt. 5:48, 19:21, Lev. 22:31-33) 

Holiness does not necessarily mean an austere lifestyle.  No!  This is the wrong way of thinking.  Holiness is a way of life by living the commandments of God, obedience to His Church, and building a foundation in prayer in whatever state in life you are in. 

Holiness requires rejecting sin, and sinful lifestyles…”those who do such things will not inherit the Kingdom” as St. Paul teaches. (Eph. 5:1-20) It is because of these evil things the justice of God comes. The mercy of God is for the repentant sinner. The gospels and the prophets make it very clear do not waste your time on earth, but seek the Kingdom of God before all things.

In the scriptures the Lord has said on multiple occasions to “Keep my Commandments…you are my friends if you keep my commandments.”  To stay in God’s friendship we must live the commandments.  Examine your hearts with the 10 commandments if you are unsure if you have offended the Lord.  I assure you in some way most have violated all of the commandments.  No one on this earth is without sin.  This is one way to begin anew. 

Blessed Mother said to the children of Fatima for the world, “Stop offending the Lord your God, for He is already much offended.” 

Let us come back to friendship with God and change our lives. Begin today and make the first step.  Jesus wants to be born in you, and conquer your heart with Divine Mercy, with His Divine Love.

Let’s keep this Holy Season in perspective.  It is the celebration of the birth of our savior.  It is not Santa Claus’ Feast day.  His day; (St. Nicholas is on December 6th). 

Live the words…. O HOLY NIGHT.  Enter into the grotto with the Holy Family in deep contemplation, and unite your heart with the infant child in awe and wonder.  How can it be that the God that the whole universe cannot contain come in such utter poverty and humility, and not one person knew He was coming except for those who were told in Spirit.  Do we every give any thought to this my friends?  It is the same God who is hidden now, and still today so few seek to find Him. 

Even St. Nicholas today is adoring the face of God in eternal joy.  Shouldn’t we be doing the same?

“If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love.  “I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete. This is my commandment: love one another as I love you.  No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.” (John 15:10-14)

Give the gift of the Holy Family this Season, and see the plan of God for His family in the universal Church.  Holy Family Workshop, Tools for Family Holiness….. 

I See in your Heart Death?

I Bring You Hope and Joy

Message, 25. November 2010

Dear children,

I look at you and I see in your heart death without hope, restlessness and hunger. There is no prayer or trust in God, that is why the Most High permits me to bring you hope and joy.

Open yourselves. Open your hearts to God’s mercy and He will give you everything you need and will fill your hearts with peace, because He is peace and your hope.

Thank you for having responded to my call.=

Wow! The Mother of God is seeing death in the hearts of her children. How horrifying for a mother! I have yet to take this message to prayer, but right off the get go, my heart is aching for her.

I am a mother and I recently experienced a similar event with my youngest child who rebelled against a disciplinary action. Maybe the Lord wanted me to experience it to share it with all of you…who knows. But non-the less my child went into despair and was crying out that she wanted to kill herself.

I asked her, what is so bad that you would want to do such a thing? She went on and on about how she hates her life, why this, why that. All I could do was just pray as she was speaking to let her get out what she was carrying in her little heart.

And then I began to say to her that God does not feel this way about you. He loves you. Only the enemy wants you dead. Only the enemy brings death into your heart and your thoughts. He would love to see you dead, and would love to hurt me as well by succeeding in doing so.

I told her that God only desires for her to be happy. But the only way to be happy is to live under His Laws and under His protection. I explained that God established an order in His creation, and in this order He has laws and rules we must follow, and that He chose us as her parents to help her abides by these Laws and rules for her own good, and for the good of her soul.

Of course she grumbled a little more. I then began to tell her the story about how she was conceived, and how excited we were to have her, and what a miracle it was for us to conceive her. We were told that we could not have children, yet I prayed and had an experience with Our Lady in prayer. I made it clear to her that God really wanted her here, and He has a great plan for her.

Upon hearing this story, her eyes lit up, as she knew she was really wanted and loved. I explained that she would have to work harder at keeping her relationship with Jesus and Mary, because of how much the enemy was trying to separate her from them.

For her young age, she has taken this to heart, and cooperates more in our family prayer, and reads her bible and writes letters to Jesus.

Now why am I telling this story? Our Lady seems to be indicating that her children are despairing in the same way. Where there is no hope there is only despair, unrest and a hunger to be loved. And here she is with open arms saying, “I am here to give you the love you need, to comfort you and to encourage you in your trials and suffering.”

But this takes effort on our part. We have to pray. I emphasize the word, “have to pray.” If we do not pray, we cannot trust in God, because we cannot trust in someone we do not have a relationship with.

Go to Jesus, Our Lady is saying. He is Divine Mercy. Open your heart to the mercy of God the Mother implores! Despair grieves the Lord. Despair grieves the Holy Spirit; go to Divine Mercy where Jesus says that He will flood the soul with His mercy that trusts in Him.

The first place I sent my child after her desire for death experience was to confession, without delay! To help strengthen her spirit, and renew her in sanctifying grace in the Love of God and His unfathomable mercy.

My dear friends, did Jesus die in vain? NO! Absolutely not! He died to save mankind from death and sin, and bring it to salvation. (John 3:16) Remember, God loves the world and sent His Son. God loves His people. His creation is good (Genesis 1).

Why would you despair at the goodness of God, except for the fact that you may be carrying such heavy burdens in your hearts you cannot even forgive yourselves. GO TO JESUS IN HIS MERCY. Allow Him to flood you in His grace. Allow Him to flood you in PEACE, BECAUSE HE IS YOUR HOPE AND YOUR PEACE!

My friends, you only have need to look at the Crucifix. Would Jesus have undergone such a torture if there was not something to suffer for? NO my friends, there is hope. There is great hope!

I will continue on with this message after I have been given greater light. But for now, contemplate the message as it is in this time, and hear the words of Divine Mercy below, and thank the Lord for His constant love and generosity for putting up with us in such miserable states that we are….Jesus I trust in YOU!!

“Oh if sinners knew My mercy, they would not perish in such great numbers. Tell sinful souls not to be afraid to approach Me; speak to them of My great mercy. (Diary 1396) The loss of each soul plunges Me into mortal sadness. you always console Me when you pray for sinners. The prayer most pleasing to me is prayer for the conversion of sinners. Know my daughter, that this prayer is always heard and answered (Diary 1397)…

How painful it is to Me that souls so seldom unite themselves to Me in Holy communion. I wait for souls, and they are indifferent toward Me. I love them tenderly and sincerely and they distrust Me. I want to lavish My graces on them, and they do not want to accept them. They treat me as a dead object, whereas My heart is full of love and mercy. In order that you may know at last some of my pain, imagine the most tender of mothers who has great love for her children, while those children spurn her love. Consider her pain. No one is in a position to console her. This is but a feeble image and likeness to My love. (1447)

Write, speak of My mercy. Tell souls when they are to look for solace; that is in the Tribunal of Mercy (the sacrament of Reconciliation) there the greatest miracle takes place and are incessantly repeated. To avail oneself of this miracle it is not necessary to go on a great pilgrimage or to carry out some external ceremony; it suffices to come with faith to the feet of My representative and to reveal to him one’s misery, and the miracle of Divine Mercy will be fully demonstrated. Were a soul like a decaying corpse so that from a human standpoint, there would be no [hope of] restoration and everything would already be lost, it is not so with God. The miracle of Divine Mercy restores that soul in full. Oh, how miserable are those who do not take advantage of the miracle of God’s mercy! You will call out in vain, but it will be too late. (1448)

Go to Jesus this Holy Season of Advent, He is waiting for you and wants to be born anew in your heart….

May this Christmas be Different

>

“Tonight I invite you in a very special manner to renew your family prayer; and during your family prayer, dear children, read especially the special passages in the bible that concern Advent.  Pray my dear children especially during this time, and among your prayers prepare yourselves for the great day that is coming, that this Christmas will be different from the other Christmases, that it will be joyous, dear children.  Remember dear children how we were happy in the stable when my Son was born!  May your family be happy with all those present in the stable.” (December 14, 1992)

Every year for the past 7 years without fail Blessed Mother has given this message to our family just before Advent begins.  Out of the 2000+ messages she has given to the world, every year she has called our family to reflect on this message given to the world in 1992. 

This year is no different, except for one thing.  This year Our Lady has called us to share its meaning for us, which we have never done.When we first started hearing this message it was a time when we lived in Colorado, and were without family.  We were suffering from great financial constraints and there was great tension in our home, about having to come up with funds to buy the Christmas gifts for the children.  We just couldn’t do it, we had almost nothing and were facing losing our home.

As we continued to pray to the Father asking for his help so we can buy gifts for Christmas, this message was given to us.  We prayed to understand its meaning for us.  And when we did, our hearts just sank.  We began to see how worldly we were, and how much retailers capitalized on this holy season to sell merchandise.  The ads on television were sickening.  The birth of Christ had become commercialized as it was said years ago, by the classical movie, Miracle on 34th StSanta Claus had taken over the birth of man’s salvation.  I always thought that St. Nicholas must be grieving in heaven for the world has put him above His God.

The world every year seems to be removing the word Christmas more and more.  Until it came the big debate over which retailers would patronize Christians for one of their most holiest days of the year shy of Easter

As our eyes opened all the more with the help of the Holy Spirit who convicted us, we began to see how we ourselves had played a role, and understood all the more, that the Lord had permitted our financial condition to teach us something more important. 

We as a family have instituted a new tradition in this time, and it has been a most incredible experience for all of us, and the profoundness of grace that has come is more than words can explain.  I will explain this further below.  However this year, when I asked Our Lady what more she wanted from us as a family for this Advent season, the following words came in my prayer.

(Again I remind you dear reader that these words are private revelations.  I ask you to use your discernment and take what is good, and leave the rest to God; yet it is clear Our Lady desires to obtain a special grace for those who choose this path).

</em

Our Lady said to my heart, “My dear little one I wish that you continue the tradition I began with you; that the birth of my Son should be celebrated in your poverty.  And that your family may be one of mind and heart with Joseph and I in holy adoration of my Son.

Prepare yourselves for this great day; in honor of the poverty and lowliness of the humble birth of your God and Savior, my Son Jesus.Be my witness my little one, and proclaim to the world all that I have taught you.  Enter more deeply in spirit and remove from yourselves all outside distractions and the lies of this world without peace.  I wish to obtain for you a most marvelous light, that your interior life shall never be disturbed or at unrest.  Contemplate the beauty of this great gift my little one as I draw you more unto the likeness of my Immaculate Heart.

Though there may be many celebrations surrounding you, do not let them interfere with my gift and desire for you.  Now is the time to enter more deeply into contemplation.  Now is a time of recollection.  Prepare your hearts for the day that comes.  For my Son desires to be born anew in you.

My little one, I ask you to obey my word with the ardent love you have for me.  I hold you all in my embrace.  Do not forget that I am your Mother, and that I love you.”

I then reflected once more on the Holy Family hidden in the cave away from the towns folk alone with the infant child Jesus.  There was no celebration; it was a night of holy adoration in wonder and amazement.  Joseph and Mary were as far away from the world as they could be, hidden among the animals and living creatures in a dark cold cave, with only one light in their midst and that was the eternal light they held before their eyes.

The world at that time knew nothing about what was taking place, and for the next 30 years it would still be the same.  The Holy Family lived a life of solitude, silence and hiddenness.  Today the world wants to celebrate in the way of men with false glitters, pretty ribbons, adornment and jewels (or even more with the latest and greatest electronic device) that all are passing.  and used for temporal means. The world forgets about the price that was paid for its salvation and why God Himself entered time to free men from death and darkness of sin.

O poor humanity, how we are drowning into the darkness of the abyss and sucked in to a vortex of sin. And all the more we lead our children to follow after us.

The Mother of God recently said “remove the darkness of sin from inside of you so that more of the spirit of Jesus could be born in you…” She desires for us to take Jesus into our hearts, so that we can be more Christ like.
Take these thoughts into consideration if you like.  This is the way the holy Mother has taught our family to adore her Son and put other things into its proper place.

The Feast of St. Nicholas (Santa Claus) is celebrated on 12/6.  It is custom in many cultures to commemorate this feast day by small gifts left in shoes outside of a child’s room; However, our family has mini Christmas trees that the children have in their rooms, which they may decorate anyway they like.  Any gifts from Santa are given on this day in the spirit of St. Nicholas, and we pray for his intercession to bring back the spirit of Christmas as God intended it to be.

In preparation for the birth of Christ each of us writes a letter to Jesus in gratitude for all the graces and blessings He has won for us and our salvation.  We put this letter in our Christmas Tree, and we openly read it on Christmas morning out loud

The only gifts we buy are holy gifts to help us grow more in the love of God and for those whom we love.  Our time is reserved for holy Mass, and prayer, and in past have been celebrated with friends or family or have served the church with a local charity. Or we celebrate on our own since we live out of state from most of our family.

I may note, that Christmas of 2009 in this past year, for our area was hit with a tremendous snow storm on Christmas Eve, which left many tucked in their homes.  Those who experienced this in this area said it was one of the best Christmases that they ever had, with their families.  God spoke very loud on this night, and this area found it as no coincidence.

We celebrate the 12 days of Christmas with family and friends (after December 25).  And on the Feast of the Epiphany is the day we open our Christmas gifts, and bless our home.

We have found when we have removed the chaos of rushing to go somewhere that day, it became a day of prayer and a day of rest filled with peace.  Each of us can attest that we have never had such experience of grace as we have had since we have taken up this tradition for our family, and it all began through a great time of suffering for us.  Many today are suffering financial burdens in one way or another. It could be possible that the Lord wants to bring you into a deeper union with Himself through His own poverty of spirit. I leave this for your own discernment.

Yet I challenge anyone to try to remove the material from this Christmas season.  As Our Lady asked, “in a very special manner … prepare yourselves for the great day that is coming that THIS CHRISTMAS will be different from the other Christmases…remember how we were happy in the stable when my Son was born!”  Ave Maria!

“But when you pray go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret.  And your Father who sees in secret will repay you…” (Matthew 6:6)

“When you give alms do no let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your almsgiving may be secret.  And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.” (Matthew 6:4)

Return Prayer in your Families

The seventh day...

“Dear children! Also today, I call you to renew prayer in your families. By prayer and the reading of Sacred Scripture, may the Holy Spirit who will renew you enter into your families. In this way, you will become teachers of the faith in your family. By prayer and your love, the world will set out on a better way and love will begin to rule in the world. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (4/25/05)

What a beautiful message from Our Lady for the family. Our Lady desires that families come together and pray and build a new foundation in prayer and sacred scripture. Not only pray, but read the sacred scriptures. Talk about them, reflect on them and discuss how the scriptures can come to life in your daily life.

The family is called the domestic church. The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches “…The home is the first school of Christian life and a school for human enrichment. Here one learns endurance and the joy of work, fraternal love, generous-even repeated forgiveness and above all divine worship in prayer and the offering of one’s life…” (CCC 1657)

Parents, you are called to give good example to your children as their first teachers. (CCC 1656)

The family environment should be a place where faith is born. In the message today, Our Lady is specific. She said to renew prayer in the family, and read the scriptures, and by this the Holy Spirit will renew the family.

Wow! Let’s look at this a little bit more closer, as we go back to the day of Pentecost, the birth of the universal Church. After the suffering death and resurrection of Jesus, the Holy Spirit came to the world. The Holy Spirit came and began His work when the the Mother of God was with the apostles, disciples, friends of Jesus, awaiting the promise of the Spirit of God to come forth to empower them to go forth and preach the gospels, heal the sick, cast out demons, give recovery of sight to the blind, set captives free, etc. (Acts 1:8) .

The Holy Spirit is the life of the Church. Jesus spoke in great deal about the Holy Spirit, especially in John’s gospel. He said the Holy Spirit would convict the world in truth. The Holy Spirit would come and renew lives. Jesus would do all His work on earth through His Holy Spirit. He instituted His sacraments with the power of this Holy Spirit.

Our Lady is the spouse of the Holy Spirit, she is one with the Holy Spirit in an espousal union. The Holy Spirit overshadowed our Lady and impregnated her with the living God in the flesh, and she birthed Jesus into the world through the power of the Holy Spirit. And the Holy Spirit came to his bride on the day of Pentecost to continue the mission of Jesus.

When the apostles were hidden in the upper room afraid to go out after the death of Jesus, the Lord entered through the door, and breathed on them with the breath of His Holy Spirit. He gave them the spirit of peace, and the power to forgive sins. They received the love power of God! Families need the Love power of God to fight the dark forces of evil and evil influences that come into the homes!

My friends, Blessed Mother is giving the remedy of how to bring back God’s spirit into the family. She said the Holy Spirit wants to be present in the family. The Holy Spirit wants to renew the family, purify the family, convert the family. When you have the Holy Spirit, you have life! And this life will only come through prayer and sacred scriptures.

How is the family like the church? The family that prays together, reading sacred scripture and sharing the meals together is the living mass. It is where communion and union are born.

Children can dialog with their parents, and speak about what is on their hearts, and the battles they face in their day at school or with friends. The home is the perfect opportunity for parents to educate and counsel their children to strengthen their spirits and encourage them to fight the battles of the world and the temptations that follow.

Parents often shrink from the role that has been entrusted to them by God, relying on institutions to educate their children. Well my friends, these institutions we are relying on are removing the holy name of God and striking out the commandments in the secular view. Your children are not learning about God in schools, in their sports or other activities. If you are not living your faith in your home openly, and in truth, your children are headed for destruction, and damnation.

Parents you bear the responsibility for the souls of your children while they are in your care. You are the voice of conscience for your children. You must guard them in their purity, encourage them in modesty and keep them chaste as they enter into their adult lives. Do not be fooled that you do not have control. Parents you are the authority over your children, and the Almighty God has mandated that you exercise your authority.

Your children should NOT be sexual active, nor indulging in drinking binges or drug activity, and all the other abuses that are occurring in the schools at epidemic proportions. It is a grave and deadly offense against God. The Lord is clear. Those who do such things will NOT inherit the Kingdom. These actions must stop and it has to begin in the family through the firm love of Mother and Father.

The commandments of God are firm in heaven. They have not changed. Living the commandments is the most repeated theme in the bible. There is no doubt that the world is spiraling into an abyss of sin and disorder. The world has lost sight of its Creator.

The Lord makes it very clear that parents are to teach the commandments to their children, and drill them into their minds and hearts, that the commandments becomes who they are. Jesus said, he did not come to abolish the Law but to fulfill every letter of it. (Mt. 5:17-18)

Woe to the one who leads the little ones astray, the Lord said. Yes my friends, it is a hard fact. It is time to rope in the youth, and take hold of the reigns.

Our Lady concludes her message by saying, “by prayer and your love the world will set out on a better way and love will begin to rule in the world…”

This seems so easy if we hear these words. Your love dear parents. Your love and prayer will stir the sacramental graces of your marriage, and the blessing will spill over into your homes, and flow through the world if you follow the instructions of the Mother. A better way she says, the way to heaven. Love is her Son. Love of Jesus will rule in the world. Not death and sin! The Love of God must rule the world. This love must be made present in the home and set as a visible sign to the world.

Now is the time to begin to change. Now is the time of decision as it has been said in many of these postings. Now today you must begin anew and pray with those whom you love. If you fail today, start again. Do not delay much longer. I urge you to seek conversion and the mercy of God, while it is still time for granting mercy.

Pray for the full outpouring of the Holy Spirit on your families. You shall not regret it. God will give you the gifts so that you will glorify him until eternity. Let there be a new Pentecost in the family, so that the family may be a light to the nations and throughout the world!

Christians be visible and be no longer silent! Ave Maria!

“For this reason, I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that he may grant you in accord with the riches of his glory to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inner self, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you rooted and grounded in love may have strength to comprehend with all the holy ones what is the breadth and length and height and dept and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” (Eph. 3:14-21)

Technical difficulties

Well it would appear that the enemy is not happy with our work. Too bad.

It has sought to take our our main hard drive, right after the last post I made. God is good.

Holy Mother all for you! Let Jesus be known through your Immaculate Heart.

Please pray for our ministry as we pray for all of you.

Do not Reject Me…

With motherly perseverence and love I call you...

“Dear children, with motherly perseverance and love I am bringing you the light of life to destroy the darkness of death in you. Do not reject me my children.

Stop and look within yourselves and see how sinful you are. Be aware of your sins and pray for forgiveness.

My children, you do not desire to accept that you are weak and little, but you can be strong and great by doing God’s will. Give me your cleansed hearts that I may illuminate them with the light of my Son. Thank you.” (11/2/10)

Yes my friends, I am still in this message. I have been reflecting for myself the area where Our Lady wants me to focus more on rooting out the sin in me. Gosh, where do I begin? I am such a great sinner.

Our Lady has led myself and our family to make a special offering to her, and has inspired us to rededicate ourselves to Her Immaculate Heart. So we as a family are honoring her wishes through our nightly family rosary, and together we are praying the “Total Consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary” by St. Louis deMonfort.

Of course in the first day of our reflection, the great St. Louis deMonfort has incredible exhortations about the latter times and the role of the Blessed Mother for the Church and humanity. As I reflected on her message I was reminded about the words of Louis deMonfort which came forth in a powerful way.

This prophecy is a tremendous prophecy, and emphasizes why we should not reject the dear Mother of God in this time. (given only in part-see “True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary for the quote in its entirety).

“God wishes therefore to reveal Mary, his masterpiece, and make her more known in these latter times.

(a)Because she kept herself hidden in this world and in her great humility considered herself lower than dust, having obtained from God, his apostles and evangelists the favor of not being made known.

(b) Because as Mary is not only God’s masterpiece of glory in heaven, but also his masterpiece of grace on earth, he wishes to be glorified and praised because of her by those living upon earth.

(c ) Because she is the dawn which precedes and discloses the Son of justice, Jesus Christ, she must be known and acknowledge so that Jesus may be known and acknowledged. As she was the way by which Jesus first came to us, she will again be the way by which He will come to us the second time though not in the same manner.

(d) She is the sure means, the direct and immaculate way to Jesus and the perfect guide to him. It is through her that souls who are to shine forth in sanctity must find him. He who finds Mary finds life that is Jesus Christ who is the way, the truth and the life. But no one can find Mary who does not look for her. No one can look for her who does not know her, for no one seeks or desires something unknown. Mary must be better known than ever for the deeper understanding and the greater glory of the Blessed Trinity.

(e) In the latter times, Mary must shine forth more than ever in mercy, power and grace: (1) in mercy to bring back and welcome lovingly the poor sinners and wanderers who are to be converted and return to the Catholic Church; (2) in power to combat the enemies of God who will rise up menacingly to seduce and crush by promises and threats all those who oppose them; (3) finally she must shine forth in grace to inspire and support the valiant soldiers and loyal servants of Jesus Christ who are fighting for His cause.

(f) Lastly, Mary must become as terrible as an army in battle array to the devil and his followers, especially in these latter times. For satan knowing that he has little time; even less than ever to destroy souls, intensifies his efforts and his onslaughts every day. He will not hesitate to stir up savage persecutions and set treacherous snares for Mary’s faithful servants and children whom he finds more difficult to overcome than others.”

Our Lady is here as this great saint described for the latter times which is now. This is her time my friends that is Her time to be made known by God as St. Louis deMonfort spoke of.

This dear Mother is here to strengthen our souls. We are on the brink of a great event when the world will experience the love of God. The whole of humanity in the coming days (unknown to God only-but will be in this lifetime) will all know that God exists. Who can stand before the Almighty when this time comes? Our Lady is preparing us for this day. In order for us to stand before God, our souls/spirits need to be strengthened in the light of God. This means my friends, sin has to go!

The visionaries spoke of this day on earlier occasions. But make it very clear to us that we are not to focus on this right now. Our focus is on our personal conversion, and not to wait for working on our conversion. Our Lady said, “Do not wait, for the unbelievers it will be too late….” Now is the time.

For those who desire to understand her recent message in another light, I am sharing my own prayer journal as Our Lady has moved my heart in my private prayer. I began to understand that this message was not only for me to hear as you will see why.

I must emphasize however, as with all private revelations, the Church and the scripture speak very clearly how to approach private revelations. The church remains open seeking always the good fruit, therefore “take only what is good” and oversee my own inadequacies. That is take what speaks to your heart dear friends, if it helps you move forward in your conversion. And leave the rest for the Lord.

Our Lady began in my prayer with her words, “With Motherly perseverance and love…”

“My child it is for your own good that you are going the through trials that you are. I am determined to have your conversion. I am determined to make your hearts humble and pure. I am determined to make sure you are in heaven with me at the end of your life. I am determined to put you on your knees to pray so that you can see the sin in you.

Through your prayers I bring to you the light of my Son who is life. My Son wants to destroy the darkness of death in you. My Son wants to destroy the sin in you and conquer your hearts. It is my Son who sends me to you. I do not come on my own.

Do not reject me, because if you reject me, you are rejecting my Son, who is life. Where ever I am, my Son is with me. Wake up my children from your unbelief and sin!

Stop what you are doing! Stop and look into your hearts. Do you see what I see in them? Stop and go into the silence. Where are your thoughts my children? What is in your heart that binds you to your sin and compels you to behave the way you do?

Oh my heart weeps for you my children as I watch you day after day committing sin and choosing death over life. You are not aware my children how you offend the love of my Son. Go deeper into your hearts, deeper into your conversion my children.

Take this time of grace and use it wisely. Examine your conscience and see how you cooperate with darkness and death to your soul. No my children…no; you are not humble yet. I hold in my hands many graces to help you; but you do not want them because you do not want to change the way in which you live.

Be aware and wake up my children. Open the eyes of your heart and listen to the voice of your Mother who calls to you tirelessly. You are too proud my children and your Father in heaven opposes the proud.

Why do you reject the love of the Father which gives its self to you so freely my children? It is because of His great mercy I am still with you.

Do you not realize that you are mere creatures and you will return to ashes and dust at the end of your lives? Do you not realize that the flesh belongs to God? Do you not realize your body has been created for God as a dwelling for my Son?

Oh my children my sorrowful heart is pierced with many swords as I look upon your sinful lives. Return to me while it is still time for granting graces.

I desire to lead you to holiness. I desire to present you to my Son; spotless and without blemish. Will you accept me my children? Will you permit me to change you? Do not be afraid my little ones, I will help you every step of the way. You only have need to keep your eyes on your Mother and my Son. We are near to help you.

Please my little children permit me to help you. I desire to clothe you in love and dress you in my grace, that you may be pure and clean of heart; yes…spotless as a bride prepared to meet her groom. And then my Son will come and will be born in your hearts my dear little ones. He will illuminate your soul that you may be a visible light for the world to see.

My children listen to me! In you I will triumph!”

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teaching…” (Hebrews 13:8-9)

What you say of me does not come from yourselves; it is the Spirit of my Father speaking in you…” (Christian prayer in the ordinary for pastors)

Destroy the Darkness of death in you…

Come back to me with all your heart....

”Dear children, with motherly perseverance and love I am bringing you the light of life to destroy the darkness of death in you. Do not reject me, my children. Stop and look within yourselves and see how sinful you are. Be aware of your sins and pray for forgiveness.

My children, you do not desire to accept that you are weak and little, but you can be strong and great by doing God’s will. Give me your cleansed hearts that I may illuminate them with the light of life, my Son. Thank you.” 11/2/10

Wow, what a powerful and strong message to the children of God! Do we hear the seriousness of the Mother’s voice in this message? It is very direct and to the point. There is no sugar coating this one my friends.

Interesting though, I was working with my daughter on her catechism today while she is learning the meaning between mortal sin and venial sin. How many of us even give consideration to when we are committing sin at all?

This is what the Baltimore Catechism says about mortal sin; “mortal sin is a grievous offense against the law of God…the sin is called mortal because it deprives us of spiritual life, which is sanctifying grace, and brings everlasting death and damnation on the soul. To make a sin a mortal sin, three things are necessary; it is of a grave matter, full knowledge and full consent of the will.

A grievous offense against the law of God says the quote above. What is the law of God? Well to start that would be the Ten Commandments. In light of what the catechism teaches, if we are not living the Commandments of God, and deliberately removing them from our secular world and permitting civil leaders to do so without any fight, it may be safe to say that the whole of humanity is in “mortal sin” just by this definition.

For example; if we vote in politicians who represent death, and the sin of abortion which we know is wrong, but we permit it any ways for another political view, a grave offense is committed at free will. Therefore, a mortal sin has been committed and the individual cooperates in this offense putting their soul is in jeopardy.

My friends, this means hell! The one who does this chooses hell willfully. This means everlasting death and damnation of the soul. And this is only one example of what is occurring in our midst today.

Let’s look at the sin against the first Commandment that says, ‘you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all of your mind, and with all your strength, and love your neighbor as yourself…” And to go with this one, there is the 3rd commandment, “Keep holy the Sabbath Day.” Are we faithful to the Sunday obligation? Are we as Catholics faithful to Holy Days of obligation? Do we willfully do unnecessary work on Sundays? It is a grave offense to miss holy Mass on Sundays.

Is our focus on Jesus in the mass? Do we go just out of habit, paying no regard to the sacrifice offered by Jesus? Are we cold and indifferent to receiving the Eucharist? Where are our thoughts during the mass? Do we believe in the full presence of Jesus in the most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar? Do we show reverence before God in the tabernacle in His house of prayer. Are we silent in the Church, God’s palace?

I’ve been to many different parishes, and I can assure you, the lines are long for communion, but the lines for confession are very short. There are many parishes that have the tabernacle; the holy of holies in the back of the churches, while the priest is at the center of attention. Where is our focus people of God?

Therefore, how many of us can truly say that we have put God in the first place in our lives, if we cannot even keep Him on the high altar of His own palace. We sit the king in the back? What are we thinking?

Do we spend every moment of the day seeking the will of God, adoring Him, thanking Him, praising Him for all the blessings we have received in our lives.

What about our neighbor? We have already written on many occasions in these postings that we must forgive those who have hurt us.

In full conscience are we forgiving the offenses of others and loving as we should, or do we gossip, cause lies, slander or detraction by telling the sins of others to other people, because they make us mad or upset? Do we make it a big deal of others offenses and mistakes, to the point of scandal? How quickly do we judge someone else before we even look at ourselves?

Try a small test for a moment. Stop right now. Point your finger out and notice that there is one finger pointing out, and three fingers pointing at you…We’ve got to remove the beam from our own eyes, and begin to look into our hearts and stop the abomination of sin.

We have become very blind, very callous to our sins. Sin is such an epidemic in the world, but it has become accepted widely.

By the definition above regarding mortal sin, we will lose our souls forever, and lose spiritual life with God. And we are doing it without conscience.

Now lets look at the United States as a whole, and what we as the people represent in this nation; not just domestically, but also internationally. The world view of this country has always been of hope, and we have been called a Christian nation, which has come with many, many blessings from God. So much so, to feed the whole world, and keep economies going.

Now look at what has happened in this last century through those who are anti-Christ in spirit, and anti-Church, who have no need for God, seeking to remove prayer in public places, seeking to remove the commandments of God publicly, and in spirit have succeeded in widespread corruption. And now we battle in our country what never would have been heard of even 50 years ago, life issues, losing respect for the dignity of the human person, killing infants in the womb, and redefining marriage union in the natural order. We are spiritually dead as a nation, in a spiritual coma. Wake up humanity!

If jobs are being lost, if the economy is tanking, and we understand the grave matter of sin, is there any reason why we would not be headed for disaster in this time? The greater the sin, the harder we fall.

The blessing of Almighty God is being lost my friends. And we only have to look as far as our self to see why by our own cooperation in sin. Grave and mortal sin is being committed as a nation, as a people.

The mother of God has spoken to the world today. She said, “my children…” This is you dear children of God. You are convicted by your own Mother. She sees everything and is in great pain watching us.

Yes, you who say that you belong the her, guilty! We are not doing our part to help her root out sin. We are too comfortable in it and don’t want to change. Are we aware of this? The judgment of God warrants justice to His people, and justly so. Thank God for His mercy and grace in this time.

Our Lady just said last month, “bear your crosses with patience.” Why? Because we can atone for sin and win grace for ourselves or for another.

This message is given in discipline in a stern way today. The Mother said, “…Do NOT reject me…” I can just hear the pain in her words. If we reject her, who are we really rejecting here? It is the One who sent her to help us. If we reject the Mother of God, we reject Jesus, we reject the Father and the Holy Spirit.

Blessed Mother said it is out of God’s great love for us that He sends her to the world…I emphasize God’s great love. In His love she comes and pleads to the world to change, calling it to conversion. She has done the same in Fatima. Woe to those who do not heed the voice of the Mother and continue on in their sin. This is a time of decision my people. Are you for God or are you against Him. If you are for Him, you have no choice but to change your life, and change it dramatically.

We do not know how long God will continue to permit Our Lady in coming to us. It has been already 29 years. Never before in human history has this occurred, except for the 33 years that Jesus entered time as man.

She has said in 1981, “I have come to call the world to conversion for the last time…these are the last apparitions…”

These words alone speak loudly that we are on the verge of something great. And I am not speaking of great in human terms. I am speaking great in God universal terms that will affect the whole world.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. We are first responsible. If we do not live our Christian vocation as Christ’s people, then the world will not know Christ exists. We have a small window of opportunity to bring the Spirit of Jesus into the world, by our Christian way of living. This is a time for saints to rise in our midst, and witness as in the days of old to the living gospel.

I also may add, that today on 11/2/10, Our Lady gave this message. Today is the day the Church prays for the poor souls in purgatory as well. These are souls who suffer not only separation from God in eternity, but also suffer greatly for the un-reconciled sin that is attached to their soul. They suffer for the time that was wasted on earth, not serving God, not living his commandments, not obeying his precepts and His authority on earth. The souls in purgatory are a silent witness to the justice and mercy of God in fullness of truth.

Yet also this day is a day of election for the U.S. What is Our Mother saying in this message to this nation? Jesus is the light of the soul. Jesus is the light of life. Not a false light, not a shining darkness. Jesus is light, and will expose all darkness, not only in the depth of the soul, but also in truth in the world.

I can continue on in pages about this message my friends, as the Lord will permit me to do. Yet I leave it up to you, in truth. Are you living the call you have received worthily? Are you raising your children as children of God under the Commandments? Are you obedient to the chair of Peter, the voice of conscience to the world? Where are you my brothers and sisters?

My last day in Medjugorje with Our Lady in exactly one year ago this time, Our Lady spoke a message to my heart. I asked her a direct question. She answered, and then she concluded with these words… “now work all the more harder for the kingdom…”

I am one person, one voice who is reaching out to hundreds and hopefully thousands through this form of media, but it does not touch the tip of 1% of the population, and it is so necessary that this world goes out globally for the sake of mankind, and for the salvation of souls.

Priest must preach this message at the altar. Religious must pray ardently and fervently for the mercy of God in this time. And Lay our task is all the more greater to live it fully in our state in life, in the home, in the work place, and to whomever we meet. There will be no second chance my friends once all is said and done. Now is the time of mercy.

Ave Maria.

“They cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation comes from our God, who is seated on the throne, and from the Lamb.” All the angels stood around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They prostrated themselves before the throne, worshiped God, and exclaimed: “Amen. Blessing and glory, wisdom and thanksgiving, honor, power, and might be to our God forever and ever. Amen.” Then one of the elders spoke up and said to me, “Who are these wearing white robes, and where did they come from?” I said to him, “My lord, you are the one who knows.” He said to me, “These are the ones who have survived the time of great distress; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. “For this reason they stand before God’s throne and worship him day and night in his temple. The one who sits on the throne will shelter them. They will not hunger or thirst anymore, nor will the sun or any heat strike them. For the Lamb who is in the center of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to springs of life-giving water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” (Rev. 7:10-17)
