Do you want God or not? June 2, 2011 Message to Mirjana

Message to Mirjana – June 2, 2011

Look into your hearts dear children....

Dear children,

As I call you to prayer for those who have not come to know the love of God, if you were to look into your hearts you would comprehend that I am speaking about many of you. With an open heart, sincerely ask yourselves if you want the Living God or do you want to eliminate Him and live as you want.

Look around you, my children, and see where the world is going, the world that thinks of doing everything without the Father, and which wanders in the darkness of temptation. I am offering to you the light of the Truth and the Holy Spirit. According to God’s plan I am with you to help you to have my Son, His Cross and Resurrection, triumph in your hearts. As a mother, I desire and pray for your unity with my Son and His works. I am with you; you decide. Thank you.

This is a serious message my friends. I have written on many occasions explaining that everybody is an unbeliever in one way or another. When we lack faith, we are an unbeliever. Today Our Lady is affirming these words. It boils down to do you want God in your life or not. Plain and simple.

We do not comprehend the great grace that has been given to us in this time. Our lady has been with us for 30 years this month. Many of us grew up with her and nothing different that being with her in the world. it is almost a whole lifetime for most.

But Our Lady made it very clear at one time when she said, “when I am gone, you will lament for the message…”

What little importance do we give to her in this time.

How many realize that the sin in this world is so severe that we as a human race are unworthy of the goodness of God in our life. Jesus told St. Faustina that we could not even accept His grace if it weren’t for His love for His creatures, and special help from Him. And here again, the Lord in His goodness has sent His Mother to the earth to warn the people for the LAST TIME.

God keeps bringing to my heart the days of Noah. I do not like to be what many call a dooms dayer, but truth must be spoken here. The day of Justice is near. And by the tone of the Mother of God in this message, and the signs that are being given in the world, there is no doubt there is something looming for the world. What we are experiencing in natural disasters today is nothing and but a small taste of what is to come.

Our Lady said above…“Look around you and see where the world is going…”

Isn’t it obvious? The world is spiraling down into a cesspool of slimy filth. But remember, just like in the days of Noah, the people we still making merry and mocking those who believed until the day Noah entered the Ark, and the doors were closed. And they all perished in the flood.

God is offering a New Ark to His people for this time and for this generation. She is a refuge of Hope with the Ark of the New Covenant; the Mother of God. She once said in my prayer, that “all good things pass through her hands“. It takes wisdom to understand these words.

To keep it simple however, just look at the picture of Our Lady of Grace, and the rays that pour forth from her hands. She is the vessel and worthy spouse of the Holy Spirit. Every grace, every treasure from Heaven, every gift from God passes through her as if she were the bridge to heaven. Jesus once described the abyss that separates God and the Creatures. In this abyss His mercy fills the chasm, but we forget who was there at the cross with him praying.

I once prayed about this, and I saw in the abyss the crucified Christ who was suffering in great agony, and blood was pouring from His wounds upon the earth as the Father was above Him looking only at His Son. But beneath the Lord was Our Lady off to the side. As the Lord agonized all the more in His suffering rays of light burst forth from His wounds and poured out as if filling up the Mother of God, and through Her hands the rays were filled with color that fell upon the earth, and the world lit up like the sun.

He explains the difference here, as through His blood we have been saved, but we forget the cost and the price He paid for our sins, as atonement to the Father in the perfect sacrifice. This justice will have to be addressed in the final day to the Father, if we have not taken the cost of our salvation with seriousness. St. Paul said one must discern the body and his sins before receiving the perfect sacrifice of the altar in the Eucharist. And it is a fact that men receive the Eucharist who never confess their sins, or habitual sinners and taking the Lord for granted.

But with Our Lady in this image with Jesus Crucified, the sacrifice of Jesus united with her suffering softens the just anger of God. For the mother loves her children, her people, and has accepted her vocation in its fullness, and desires to bring the blessing of her Son no matter how bad or disobedient her children are. She wants to clothe them in her grace, redress them, clean them up, to make them presentable to the loving Father.

But my friends, guess what we are doing, when we do not accept this grace from Heaven and do not put to life her messages, or as the Blessed Mother just said “do not choose God’s way in this time”?

We are shoving the holy Mother aside as if to say she is not important enough, and boldly approach His Majesty, the King, the Almighty God alone without an advocate to come to our aide. And the ancient custom for this was death! WOE TO THE ONE WHO IGNORES HIS MOTHER!

This is a gift from heaven dear people of God, and those who claim to be God’s people. How would it be for you if you handed a gift to someone and they looked at you in the eyes, and threw the gift aside and said, “Oh, that’s nice…” and then just put it on the shelf or throw it away, ignoring the giver of the gift, and what was in the box!

Do we realize what we are doing? Stupid, stupid people! Wake up!

Why can’t we see this my friends. Why do we choose to ignore the abomination of sin and do nothing about it and remain silent? What is wrong with us?

Many may say that they go to confession, and are living out their faith in the best way. I see and hear this all the time. And I see at the same time the same people boasting in themselves because they are in their “own eyes” proudly living their faith. And I see the same people judging others because they are not like them.

But to hear these words of the Mother of God, it is not enough to talk about the faith or study the faith, it must be lived. There is a level of conversion she wants to bring us to, and she is very FIRM IN HER WORDS, THIS GENERATION OF PEOPLE ARE NOT THERE YET, as much as we like to think we are. And this generation is not speaking out boldly against sin.

We need to hear our priests preach the gospel. Not just tell stories that have nothing to do with the gospel. Jesus said PREACH THE GOSPEL dear apostles. We the lay need to be fed the living Word of God. Preach it boldly! And call sin what it is, SIN! Sin is an abomination to God. God hates sin…loves the sinner but hates sin. Jesus was kind, but when sin was committed He called it out, and shut it down! Then families can take what is preached into the home, and teach these children to be children of God. There is no more room for error. We all have a part in this plan. It’s time to buck up and walk the talk!

The human race is at emnity with its Creator, and is choosing to be its own God. You heard it above from the Mother herself, who of course does not speak on her own, but is sent from God to convey the Word.

It is sickening to me to see how people react when I bring up Medjugorje. Some say they want to wait until the Church approves it. For you dear friends who think this way…I will say to you boldly – it will be too late! The Blessed Mother has made that very clear. She said, “DO NOT WAIT, FOR THE UNBELIEVERS IT WILL BE TOO LATE.” If you choose to wait, and not to believe, you are counted among this number that she speaks of as “unbeliever.” There is no gray here. It will be too late.

Do we know that the apparitions of Rue de Bac have never been approved by the Church to this day, but we all still wear the miraculous medals? Are you still waiting for the approval of this? But the visionary St. Catherine was made a saint, the medal was struck in her time, and it was worn, and miracles occurred.

A Cardinal just recently said, that the pastoral plan of the Mother of God is not always the same as the Theological plan of the Church; (Lourdes for example). But the Church did adapt the plan, and still today people still come to Lourdes France right?

Today the pastoral service of the Church is to serve the people of God and help support pilgrims coming to Medjugorje. He said that Blessed Mother is giving practical guidelines to living out the Christian vocation. And that the Mother of God is THE PERFECT THEOLOGIAN. He affirmed that the Church cannot exclude Medjugorje but provide the pastoral support that it needs. These apparitions will not be approved until the apparitions cease or a visionary dies. Neither of these have happened yet. Cardinal Schonborn advised that God’s people need to be patient as God has been patient with us for these 30 years.

Parishes and diocese should help give pastoral support to those called to go to Medjugorje. This is declared from the Church.

Well, is God’s patience running thin? I think we only need to hear this message and practically think, YES IS THE APPROPRIATE WORD! I can see my self in this parental role telling my own child, when I have had enough of the antics boldly saying to them. Here it is. This is your choice right now. You either decide to do such and such or not. If you do not, I cannot help you and you are on your own. If you do what I suggest, then I can help you this way. From there, the child needs to decide.

This is where the Mother of God has left it for you. Not for the one next door, not for the one in the other city. It is for you dear reader. You decide.

The apostles taught about what Jesus was going to do to the Lawless one. This is the one who does not live the Law “the Commandments of God.” But is one who puts himself above the law, declaring he is a god, who in truth comes from satan. If we are seeing in truth, I think we can recognize many lawless ones in our midst who are declaring their own laws for the people. But the Lord will kill them with His breath. This same scripture says, that those who in alliance with this lawless one, the Lord has sent upon them a deceiving spirit that they would believe the lie. (2 Thes. 2)

Do we see what is happening here? The Blessed Mother says she is bringing with her the Spirit of Truth, that is the Holy Spirit that Jesus spoke of in John 14 and 15. She wants us to have the truth and to see the truth. Jesus said the world does not know the truth, but when the Holy Spirit comes He will convict the world in truth and remind us of all that He taught us.

Today is the Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord. Today marks the beginning of the novena to the Holy Spirit, for the Day of Pentecost. My dear friends. beg the Father to send the Holy Spirit of Truth. We need it more than ever! And offer a Fast and renunciation that He may come to your spirit house in your body, that you may be a fit sacrifice to God. Ave Maria!

Come Holy Spirit, come!

“Christ’s call to conversion continues to resound in the lives of Christians. The “second conversion” is an uninterrupted task for the whole Church who ‘clasping sinners to her bosom is at once holy and always in need of purification, and follows constantly the path of penance and renewal. This endeavor of conversion is not just a human work. It is the movement of a ‘contrite heart’ drawn and moved by grace to respond to the merciful love of God who loved us first.” (CCC 1428, Ps. 51:17, Jn.6:44, 12:32, 1 Jn. 4:10)

Rosary Novena for Unbelievers-Joyful Mysteries

I give my Son to you

Always begin prayer to the Holy Spirit….

Follow the normal instructions on the rosary beads and use the following meditations for reflection in prayer.

Come Holy Spirit…

Creed
Lord God our Father, Father of love together with Mary our dear Mother, your faithful servant and mother of love. I adore you today father together with Her I have decided to pray to you for all those who have not yet discovered your Fatherly love and for those who do not believe in your mercy. I pray to you for those who have distanced themselves from you. I pray for those who believe in you but who live as unbelievers because they have not experienced your fatherly love. Together with Blessed Mother I ask you to send your Holy Spirit upon me. Holy Spirit lead me in prayer and reveal his love to me so that my heart and my soul may be completely immersed in your love. Grant that I may be purified and healed in your love. Grant that I may be able to offer all of my prayers with love for my brothers and sisters who have not yet experienced your love.

Blessed Mother you have called me to pray today for those who do not know the love of God. Together with you, I offer this novena of prayer for your intentions, and for the conversion of sinners.

(Reflect on the meditation of Our Lady’s message for each day)

Day 1 “Dear children, this is a time of grace. Open yourselves to the Holy Spirit, for the Holy Spirit to make you strong. Your Mother, dear children wants especially to call you in this time to prayer and to sacrifice.” (6/1/90)

Day 2 “Dear children! Today I invite you to live peace in your hearts and families. There is no peace, little children where there is no prayer, and there is no love where there no faith. Therefore little children, I invite you all to decide again today for conversion. I am close to you and I invite you all little children, into my embrace to help you, but you do not want it, and so satan is tempting you, and in the smallest things your faith disappears. This is why little children pray and through prayer you will have blessing and peace. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (3/25/95)

Day 3 “Dear children! Do not forget that you are here on earth on the way to eternity and that your home is in Heaven. That is why little children, be open to God’s love and leave egoism and sin. May your joy be only in discovering God in daily prayer. That is why, make good use of this time and pray, pray, pray and God is near to you in prayer and through prayer. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (7/25/2000)

Day 4 “Dear children! I desire to share my joy with you. In my Immaculate Heart I feel that there are many of those who have drawn closer to me and are in a special way carrying the victory of my Immaculate Heart in their hearts by praying and converting. I desire to thank you and to inspire you to work even more for God and His Kingdom with love and the power of the Holy Spirit. I am with you and I bless you with my Motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (8/25/2000)

Day 5 “Dear children! Today I call you through prayer and sacrifice to prepare yourselves for the coming of the Holy Spirit. Little children this is a time of grace and so again I call you to decide for God the Creator. All Him to transform and change you. May your heart be prepared to listen to and live everything which the Holy Spirit has in His plan for each of you. Little children, allow the Holy Spirit to lead you on the way of truth and salvation towards eternal life. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (5/25/98)

Day 6 “Dear children, I am with you to take you all to my Son. I wish to bring you all to salvation. Follow me, because only in this way will you be able to find rue peace and happiness. My little children, come with me.” (5/2/2005)

Day 7 “There is no way without my Son. Do not think that you will have peace and joy if you do not have Him in the first place.” (6/2/2006)

“Dear children, God created you with free will to comprehend and to choose life or death. I as a Mother with motherly love desire to help you to comprehend and to choose life. My children, do not deceive yourselves with false peace and false joy. Permit me my children, to show you the true way, the way that leads to life-to my Son. Thank you.” (7/2/2006)

Day 8 “Dear children, with this message I call you to pray for peace. Particularly now when peace is in crisis, you be those who pray and bear witness to peace. Little children, be peace in this peaceless world. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (1/25/2003)

Day 9 “Dear children, here is my Son in my arms! I would like to ask you to be a light for all in the year to come. I would like to call you again to live the messages, those are messages of peace, conversion, prayer, penance and faith. Dear children, your Mother does not ask words from you, I ask for deeds. Your Mother will help you and She will give you the strength to continue. And tonight I would like to tell you; rejoice!” (12/25/89)

Joyful Mysteries

First Joyful Mystery Annunciation of the Lord –
Thank you Father for the love you have for your creatures, and especially for the love you have for Blessed Mother. Thank you for choosing her to be the Mother of your Son, and giving her to the world as a gift to your people. We thank you Father for her obedience and witness of faith, and for her trust in you that she said yes to your plan for the salvation of man. Blessed Mother I too want to thank you for your Fiat to God for our sake, and offering your body for the salvation of souls, which brought the redemption of mankind into the world. I remember now the call you have made to us your children saying,

“Dear children! Today I invite you to comprehend your Christian vocation. Little children, I led and am leading you through this time of grace, that you may become conscious of your Christian vocation. Holy martyrs died witnessing, ‘I am a Christian and love God over everything.’ Little children, today also I invite you to rejoice and be joyful Christians, responsible and conscious that God called you in a special way to be joyfully extended hands towards those who do not believe, and through the example of your life, they may receive faith and love for God. Therefore, pray, pray, pray that your heart may open and be sensitive for the Word of God. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (11/25/97)

Today I pray with you and I ask you to help me to comprehend my Christian vocation, realizing that the saints before me have died witnessing for the love of God. I pray that my heart will be open and sensitive to the word of God that I may as you asked, responsible and joyful witness as your extended hands toward those who do not believe, and by my example that they may receive faith and love for God.

Second Joyful Mystery – The visitation

Blessed Mother with joyful expectation you traveled in haste to your relatives expecting to receive confirmation of the Word of God through his holy angel. Overwhelmed with joy the Holy Spirit filled you and St. Elizabeth while exalting and giving glory to God for our redemption has come to the world! Dear mother, we ask you now to bring your visitation into our families and into our home, our parishes, workplaces, and to our prayer groups. Visit all parents and all children so that they may experience God’s love for them. Let this experience over come their hearts and change hearts so that love may dwell among all men and birth the foundation of peace. May the experience of the love of God bring healing in the hearts of parents and children, and husbands and wives, and may they live in peace. I remember your words when you said,

“Dear children, today I invite you all to awaken your hearts to love. Go into nature and look how nature is awakening and it will be a help for you to open your hearts to the love of God the Creator. I desire you to awaken love in your families so that where there is unrest and hatred, love will reign and when there is love in your hearts, then there is also prayer. And dear children, do not forget that I am with you and I am helping you with my prayer that God may give you the strength to love. I bless and love you with my Motherly love. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (4/25/93)

Dear mother with you I pray that my heart is awakened to the love of God and that I will glorify Him in His creation. Teach me how to love, and how to awaken love in my family especially where we are lacking peace in our home, so that love will reign and give birth to prayer. I thank you dear mother for reminding me that you are with me, and that you are praying for me to the Father that I may have strength to live the call you are giving me today.

Third Joyful Mystery – The Nativity of the Lord

Thank you Father for letting the world experience your love through the birth of your Son Jesus Christ into the world. Be blessed and glorified through all the hearts that recognize your love in this great mystery of the infant born of the Blessed Virgin Mary. We bless you Father and praise you for revealing yourself in such poverty and in such a simple way and for the opening of many hearts to your love in His poverty at birth.

Dear Father, we pray now with Blessed Mother for all expectant mothers with their husbands that they will accept their unborn children with love as Our Lady accepted your Son with love. May your love heal the hearts of pregnant women who want to reject their children through abortion. With your love Father, grant that they may expect their child with your love and accept this great gift with joy. May all newborn infants experience your love through the love of their parents. And for all those who have been denied the love of father or mother; grant them healing and that they will open their hearts to your love through the goodness of others.
Blessed Mother I remember when you said,

“Dear children! Today in a special way, I invite you to take the cross in the hands and to meditate on the wounds of Jesus. Ask of Jesus to heal your wounds, which you dear children, during your life sustained because of the sins of your parents. Only in this way, dear children, you will understand that the world is in need of healing of faith in God the Creator. By Jesus’ passion and death on the cross, you will understand that only through prayer you too can become true apostles of faith, when in simplicity and prayer, you live faith which is a gift. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (3/25/97)

Dear mother, today I decide to forgive my parents and family members (name them each here) for all the hurt that has been caused to me, and I ask for the perfect love of Jesus to come into the areas of my heart where pain has been caused. I understand that there are many in this world in need of this great healing of faith, to come to know the love of the Father. I pray that through the passion and death of Jesus on the cross it will help me to understand that I also can be an apostle of faith and a witness to love. Obtain for me the grace I need to become a light of your presence today.

Fourth Joyful Mystery – Presentation in the Temple

Thank you Blessed Mother with St. Joseph for presenting your Son in the temple and being obedient to your faith and the law of Moses, and for the old man Simeon who experienced the love of God and constantly gave praise and glory to God in the temple.

Dear Father in heaven, together with Blessed Mother we present all those who pray to be open to your love, we pray for the Holy Father, and all bishops and priests, religious brothers and sisters. Grant that their lives be filled with your love and may help others to come to experience your love.

We also offer you all those who know they need to pray but do not because they lack love. Touch their hearts so that they may be open, and overcome with your immeasurable love. I remember when you said dear Mother that you want to present each of us to God;

“Dear children, I have been inviting you for years by these messages which I am giving you. Little children, by means of the message I wish to make a very beautiful mosaic in your heart so I may be able to present each one of you to God like the original image. Therefore, little children I desire that your decisions be free before God, because He has given you freedom. Therefore, pray so that, free from any influence of satan, you may decide only for God. I am praying for you before God and I am seeking your surrender to God. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (11/25/89)

Dear mother, I accept your invitation and I renew my yes to you again today. I thank you for your constant love and protection, and for your desire to see me in heaven with you, and for God’s desire to make me a new creation in Him. I choose to love God freely this day and for my life. Dear Father, with Blessed Mother I ask to be free of temptations that my decisions may always be for the good. Please hear the prayers of Blessed Mother on my behalf. I surrender all things to you.

Fifth Joyful Mystery – The Finding of the child Jesus in the Temple

Blessed Mother, with St. Joseph you experienced deep sorrow at the lose of Jesus your Son in the temple, but your sorrow quickly turned to joy when you found him again. You searched with love and joy and He was found. Your apparitions are a sign of love that you are looking for us too, and your prayer is proof of your desire to help all of us to experience God’s love.

With you dear mother I pray for all those who have lost faith, hope and love, and for those who do not have peace or joy in their hearts. Obtain for them dear mother a new love, a new hope, a new faith, a new joy and a new profound peace of heart. I pray especially for the young people who do not experience love in their families and consequently look for love in the wrong way. Your concern is great for the young people for you said,

“Dear children, I again ask you to pray for all the young people of the world because they find themselves in a difficult situation. You can help them with your love and prayers of the heart…decide for God these days. You young people, put God in the first place in your life thus you will have with Him a way that is sure. I invite you to pray for my intention for peace.” (1992)

Dear Mother, I pray with you to the Father for all the young people of the world and I ask for the gift of love to love them with a tender love that they need and that my prayers of the heart will help them obtain the love they need. Strengthen the spirit of the youth today that they will choose to put God in the first place in their life, for a future full of hope, and decide for peace.

Closing Prayer:God my Father hear the prayers we offer you today with Blessed Mother. Manifest your love to all who seek it, especially to those who do not know your love, so that the entire world may be overcome with love. We ask this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ your Son. Come Holy Spirit and renew the face of the earth and the hearts of men.

Pope: Parishes Help Families

God wants to convert the world through my coming...

Wow, the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI addresses the family and the need for parishes to help families grow in their faith.

My friends, see where we are today. There is no mistake. This message from the Holy Father is just days after Our Lady spoke to the world stating that she is praying that we comprehend that we are God’s family. Above all, the universal Church, the parish families, and the domestic church are all united in the same Jesus Christ.
Below are the words of the Holy Father posted on 1/9/2011….

“The collaboration between the Christian community and the family is much needed in the current social context in which the institution of the family is threatened from many sides and finds itself faced with many difficulties in its mission to teach the faith,” he said. “The disappearance of stable cultural references and the rapid transformation that society continually undergoes, make the educational task truly difficult.

“Therefore, it is necessary that parishes increasingly strive to support families, the little domestic Churches, in their work of passing on the faith.” (Zenit News Source-1/9/2011)

Families must be formed anew in their faith. It is like a generation lost in the faith because there has been little or no formation in the homes. And yet I have already said, that Our Lady has spoken several times of the severity and the seriousness of the responsibility of parents to raise their children under the precepts of God.

Parishes should seek new ways to awaken the faith for their families. To find ways to draw couples and their children, deeper into heart to heart union with God.

Families must pray together, especially the rosary, to begin stirring up those sacramental graces that was gifted to husband and wife on their wedding day. The graces are there my friends. But they are dormant, because husbands and wives do not know their own faith, to hand it down to their children.

This is where the parish needs to step in and provide those opportunities. It is not enough to just to have topical speakers come in; more is needed. Parents need solid food, hard core solid Catholic formation. It is an urgency!

And I know most of you agree with me, because I talk with parents all the time about it. The kids are not getting the formation needed in the Catholic Schools and certainly not in public schools, because it is against the law so to say to mention the name of God. Many children in the Catholic Schools do not even believe there is a God.

Jesus is like Santa Claus to children, and of course as they get older, it is not cool to believe in Santa, so why would they believe in Jesus? There is no relationship!

We’ve developed a program called Holy Family Workshop to help awaken the hearts of couples, first to understand their own marriage sacrament, and then the importance of bringing the grace of their marital love in the home to their children. This formation teaches couples to pray together as husband and wife with listening ears, surrendering to the other, to help build the foundation of faith in Jesus Christ.

So many couples are just going through the motions, of attending mass, praying in church, thinking they are meeting their obligation with God, and then leave the holy Mass only to return to their same old routines. They have no concept of why they must go to mass on Sunday, nor do they see the value of holy Mass. It is routine to most, and the life of the spirit is all but lost in most parishes. Couples have no idea that the modern lifestyle in the world is opposed to God’s plan for the human family.

The Mother of God said very clearly to the world, “parents are teaching their children the wrong way…the youth are in a very difficult situation.”

Folks, this is heaven saying “we have it all wrong.”

We need to return back to the basics, the original foundation as I have said. God must be in the first place at the center of the family once more. Career cannot come first, sports cannot come first, vacations cannot come first. God must be priority! Your vocation is of second importance, then your children, then the rest to follow. We are a disordered culture.

The Holy Family is the first model to study as the perfect human family, as was given in the former articles related to the call of Fatima. Their simple, silent and hidden life speaks volumes to the world and the call to the human family.

And now we have the Vicar of Christ Himself, the official voice of God speaking to the world, calling parishes to help the families! Yes dear friends, the time is now, to start forming families with the proper tools needed to live out the vocation that about 90% of the church’s population consists of.

As I have said, Blessed Mother is rolling up her sleeves, and about to do some serious house cleaning and rearranging the Palace of God. First the interior temple must be set right, and stripped of sin. Then it must be lived out in every day life, especially in the homes where you live.

May I also echo the words of the great encyclical of our modern time, Humanae Vitae, and its call to “Christian Husband and Wives. Pp 25” The document says….

“Christian married couples then docile to her voice [that is the voice of the Church] must remember that their Christian vocation, which began at baptism, is further specified and reinforced by the sacrament of matrimony. By it husband and wife are strengthened and as it were consecrated for the faithful accomplishment of their proper duties, for the carrying out of their proper vocation even to perfection and the Christian witness which is proper to them before the whole world. To them the Lord entrusts the task of making visible to men the holiness and sweetness of the law which unites the mutual love of husband and wife with their cooperation with the love of God, the author of human life.

We do not intend to hide at all the sometimes serious difficulties inherent in the life of Christian married persons, for them as for everyone else, ‘the gate is narrow and they way is hard, that leads to life. But the hope of that life must illuminate their way as with courage they strove to live with wisdom, justice and piety in this present time, knowing that the figure of this world passes away.

Let married couples then face up to the efforts needed supported by the faith and hope which ‘do not disappoint … because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Let them implore divine assistance by persevering prayer, above all let them draw from the source of grace and charity in the Eucharist. And if sin should still keep its hold over them, let the not be discouraged, but rather have recourse with humble perseverance to the mercy of God, which is poured the fullness of conjugal life described by the Apostle; ‘husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the Church … husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no man ever hates his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it as Christ does the Church, this is a great mystery, and I mean in reference to Christ and the Church. However let each on of you love his wife as himself and let the wife see that she respects her husband.”

Let us look at this a little closer. The encyclical states here paragraph 25 the power of the sacrament of holy matrimony, husbands and wives receive a special grace that strengthens not only the marriage union, but also strengthens them to live out their proper vocation as witnesses in the world.

God entrusts husbands and wives; a man and a woman who live under the law of obedience to the covenant they joined and professed by a vow in the presence of God to make visible the sign of His divine love in their cooperation with grace. That is couples must bring to life that which had been given to them as gift and use the gift for the greater glory of God. Most couples are not fulfilling their vow to this order. I warn couples though, God does not forget the vow. It is sealed in the blood covenant of Jesus Christ that was offered during your mass at your marriage.

If a marriage; or a man and a woman who are joined in marriage as one, do not have Jesus Christ as the golden thread between them, who is the true foundation of faith, then the once tied knot of love will become unraveled, and the rope of love will become frayed and fall apart; hence the division and the sins of marriage creep in, and the weakening of nature of man’s humanity will succumb to great temptations which will jeopardize the marriage union.

It is not easy for anyone to vow their lives to another for life, and many couples enter into this union blind without knowledge of the great responsibility set before them in the eyes of God. It’s not even a matter of dishonoring the vows to each other, but the adulterous act is committed against God Himself.

Today we are witness of the faltering state of marriage and family live, reaping the sour fruit of the broken covenantal laws of God.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains in great detail what happens to marriage when sin is manifested in the covenantal union between a man and a woman, in paragraphs 1606-08. The union is always threatened by discord, a spirit of domination, infidelity, jealousy, conflicts which ultimately will escalate into hatreds, separation and disorder. These threats are the result of the couples “break with God” and the covenant which was vowed to God.

Dear friends I do not preach what I do not live. I am speaking from experience as one who has lived to tell it all, and the effects of sin against the sacrament of marriage. We have suffered for 19 years as we looked back to see where it all went wrong. And the Lord in His mercy gave us a birds eye view of all that we have done and the sins committed in our marriage covenant, leaving us with no other option but to tear down what we had once built on sand, to laying a new foundation in Jesus Christ.

I can honestly say as all has come to light, our own sacrament of marriage was made a mockery from the day we said I do at the altar by our act of the will and the decisions we made compromising in sin.

We never gave consideration to what was ahead of us, or did we ever really care that we were offending God, and lived for the party alone. Our marriage was built on selfishness wants and goals. To the depth of my soul, if I knew then what I know now, who knows how things would have been through these past 19 years of marriage. None the less, our experience is a witness of what not to do for married couples.

We had committed every sin against the sacrament itself. However, not only have we suffered the consequences of our sins, but our children have bared the same consequences and have suffered greatly.

The Lord in His mercy, which my friends, is the greatest treasure and mystery known to man, and in it I cling to His merciful heart, for if he were not a merciful God, I should surely be dead and steeped into the pit of hell. It was the Lord who willed the life of our souls, and to this day is using us to be a sign and a witness to the world, one not only to say that God exists, but how He can resurrect to new life what was once thought lost!

The document above said of couples, “Let them implore divine assistance by persevering in prayer, and above all, let them draw from the source of grace and charity in the Eucharist…”

Hours upon hours I spent with the Lord in the most Blessed Sacrament, attending daily mass for over 15 + years and clinging to life as my soul was being refined and purified in the fire. I only had the Lord to look to, for I found no consolation in human love. I was left to myself before my God, in the misery of my sins, knowing that what I had endured through my married life could have been avoided had I been obedient to God and His commandments and sought after holiness in virtue.

Yet all the more, I also witnessed the state of my husband’s soul, who as head of the home was leading his family to the path of hell. I was given a choice by God, to offer my life for the salvation of souls in reparation for sins, not only my sins, but the sins of my husband, and sins against our marriage, and the future of my children. A great act of mercy by the Lord for one who was swimming in misery.

I gave my yes, Our Lady took charge of me, and from there all hell was leashed against me, and the battle began. I will not speak of gory details, as most have been brought to the sacrament of reconciliation, but to witness life after death alone. I spent the greater portion of my marriage suffering from spousal physical abuse, and in its final hour I experienced the crucifixion the day I was put in the hospital with a neck injury, only to find my husband at the foot of the bed in prayer. I heard the words in my soul, “it is finished.” Now his conversion was about to begin.

Therefore I speak clearly from experience, living the Word of God which was fully flesh of my flesh. I lived on a promise by God that we would be restored and as new creatures, built now on Rock. (Mt. 7, Luke 6:48-49) I never knew when this day would come, but the Lord continued to encourage me and hold me up and make up for the love I was not receiving in human terms.

I learned through this journey that not only was I suffering for my own marriage, but for the sacrament of marriage itself, as I know that our marriage is not the only one who has suffered in this way. Ours is on the recovery.

Yes my friends, I could have easily chosen to divorce my spouse and have my children live the effects of divorced parents. I had every ground to do so. But I was living the effects of divorce already as my husband was a product of an abusive divorce situation. It is what he knew about marriage and the only example he was given in his childhood.

The Lord gave me compassion for him. I knew he was not able to love me, as he was in his condition, I had to be the example for him, because he did not know how to love me, but Jesus did. I had to allow Jesus in me to love him through me. In His mercy the Lord begged me to stay on the cross with my husband, and persevere for the sake of his soul. I had to trust that Jesus was doing something in him, even though I was not seeing it visibly.

I believed in the power of sacramental grace. I had parents who were witnesses for me, who have been married for 50 years now. I witnessed how they had overcome countless trials and tribulations in their lives and still all is imperfect and always will be, because we are human and to error is human-to forgive is divine. Their witness, my faith, and the power of God kept me on the cross, as one with Jesus.

And from this, I am witnessing the power of the resurrection, and the countless miracles of God’s mercy and love for us, who now is leading us into the promise land, and rebuilding our souls, and souls of our children.

I never thought I could love this man again. But Jesus continues to teach me about divine love, the love that only comes from God. I had to learn this love by experience, not in word, but in deed.

The love that drove him to the cross knowing what would happen to him. It is Christ from whom I draw my strength, and His love moved me to the cross with him. I did not run, I did not flee but allowed the crucifixion to occur in my soul, dying to self for the sake of the other.

It is not easy to lay this out for the world to see. Maybe you are one who may say, this is too intense. Well maybe so for you, because you are not perfect in love yet nor have you had the grace to experience as such. I have confidence in the Lord enough to know however that He will make up for what I am lacking, and the hope to say I hope He is touching hearts by this witness.

I know who I am, and I know I still have a long journey to walk, but the journey I walk is in the embraced of the eternal lover, Jesus Christ.

I make this point to say clearly this is the state of marriage today. It is also the state of the marriage union with Jesus Christ and his bride, who continues to inflict wound upon wound on His mystical body.

Parishes need to help support marriages said the holy Father. Marriages are threatened by so many facets in the world as he stated. I speak from experience having been to countless parishes in this country. There is a great need for martial spiritual direction, a need for healing and deliverance ministry, and renewal of love in the marriage sacrament.

I am living witness to the power of sacramental grace and divine mercy. We have also been given the grace to counsel many couples who suffer in multiple ways in shared experiences. The only answer is ‘press into the cross’ as Jesus did my friends.

I must note, that there are some situations where there is the threat of life of a spouse. Seek help and bring the situation to light. Be silent no more oh brave soul. No one soul needs to hide in shame any longer. There is mercy, and there is new life.

As I further go on to say in short to continue with the voice of the Church through the encyclical of Humane Vitae, pp 26, the document encourages couples to work with couples and to communicate their experiences to others. Holy Father Pope Paul VI said as such:

“Among the fruits which ripen forth from a generous effort of fidelity to the divine law, one of the most precious is that married couples themselves not infrequently feel the desire to communicate their experiences to others. Thurs there comes to be included in the vast pattern of the vocation of the laity a new and most noteworthy form of the apostolic of like to like; it is married couples themselves who become apostles and guides to other married couples. This is assuredly among so many forms of apostolate, one of those which seem most opportune today.”

Parishes must be open to allow the laity especially couples to work together to help build up once more the marriage sacrament in the plan of God. Couples who can share their experiences of the trials, sufferings and truths of married and family life, especially with young couples who encounter the sacrament with stars in their eyes.

Since the laity make up the greater portion of the Church, great emphasis must be placed in helping marriage and the family life and to help once more give birth to the Holy Spirit who wants to be present in the family.

I will conclude on the words of the Mother of God… who said:

“Dear children, tonight also your Mother is warning that satan is at work. I would like you to pay special attention to the fact that satan is at work in a special way with the young. Dear children, during this period I would like you to pray in your families with your children. I would like you to talk with your children. I would like you to exchange your experiences and help them to solve all their problems. I will pray, dear children, for the young, for all of you. Pray, dear children. Prayer is medicine that heals.” (9/9/88)

Begin today my friends. Pray in your families especially with your children. Begin to strengthen their spirits to fight against satan who is seeking to devour their souls. And be honest and open with them, sharing your experiences and how you have learned from your past mistakes. Help form their conscience, and teach them that God is fully alive!

Ave Maria!

Archdiocese of Omaha Official Statement

July2011ConferenceStatement

Review the press release from Archbishop Lucas regarding claims from Ms. Nadine Brown about a pending conference in the summer of 2011.

Catholics must be aware of the serverity of participating in such an event. The Intercessors of the Lamb Corporation IS NOT A CATHOLIC ORGANIZATION. Catholics are strongly discouraged from participating in such an event.

Fatima? Medjugorje? Connected?

I want to realize through the secrets I began in Fatima may be fulfilled.

“Dear children, today also I invite you to prayer, now as never before when my plan has begun to be realized. satan is strong and wants to sweep away my plans of peace and joy and make you think that my Son is not strong in His decisions. Therefore, I call all of you dear children, to pray and fast still more firmly. I invite you to renunciation for nine days so that with your help everything I wanted to realize through the secrets I began in Fatima may be fulfilled. I call you dear children to understand now the importance of my coming and the seriousness of the situation. I desire to save all souls and to present them to God. Therefore, we pray that all I have started may be completely realized in its fullness. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (8/25/1991)

FATIMA’S CONNECTION TO MEDJUGORJE?

God gave the world the model of the perfect man; he is Jesus Christ and the way to salvation. He gave us a model of the perfect woman; the Blessed Virgin Mary. He gave us another model of a righteous man in human dignity one who toiled and labored as sacrifice in atonement for sin; St. Joseph.

We have come to the close of this holy season of Christmas, which is centered on the birth of Christ who has been born a new into the world for human souls, but Christmas is also centered on the human family.

Blessed Mother speaks frequently about the family and the call to the family in her apparitions in Medjugorje. Our Lady began the call of conversion throughout her history of apparitions.

In one message she spoke of the significance for parents to carry and live the Word of God in the heart and in thoughts. She said in 1996 to place sacred scripture in a visible place in your family, read it and live it. The key word is to “live it.”

Then she said, “teach your children, because if you are not an example to them, children will depart into godlessness.” And so we have it, a godless society in our modern culture, simply because the faith was not being taught in the home.

The most recent apparitions of our age and for our generation which has had great significance and importance for this history in time is Fatima, Portugal. I will speak briefly about Fatima and its connection to Medjugorje-most specifically for the family.

Those who have followed Fatima and have experienced Medjugorje, have experienced the connection. There are many similarities connecting Fatima with Medjugorje, especially from the early years of the apparitions such as the miracle of the sun, which is a frequent occurrence to some who have experienced this event in Medjugorje and the call to conversion.

Why signs and wonders? Our Lady’s response is, “it is necessary to increase the faith.” Most people will believe things when they experience it with their own eyes. But not everyone experiences the same thing. The Lord uses signs in the way He knows the soul is going to respond to Him. Some don’t need to see a miracle of a sun because they have a stronger faith than another, and so on.

In Medjugorje, Our Lady said to Marija Luenetti (visionary) in one of her monthly messages as posted above, that she wants her plans that she began in Fatima to be fulfilled….but satan does not want it.” She said this connecting Fatima to Medjugorje. Fatima is the only Marian apparition sight mentioned by Our Lady in Medjugorje. And through this, we have to pray to understand what she is saying, and would understand its universal call to humanity.

Pope John Paul II proclaimed at one time that Medjugorje is the fulfillment of Fatima as though echoing the words of the dear Mother. For the discerning heart, who believes without seeing, it is clear to the human soul.

However, Medjugorje is still different than Fatima, as in Medjugorje our Lady is giving detailed instruction on how to live the Fatima call. We didn’t get it right the first time.

If anyone has studied and prayed the messages of Fatima, then Medjugorje would make sense for one to understand why it was necessary for Our Lady to return to earth, and call her children again one last time to conversion and prayer.

The world did not heed the message of Fatima, and with great sadness as Our Lady said, Russia would spread her errors of communism, and World War II occurred as she prophesized.

Today the world lives as if there is no God what so ever. It is as if the world has globally gone communist or atheistic. We depend more on technology, careers and statue for our survival, and forget that one day we are all going to die from this earth.

If we look back to Fatima apparitions the call of Our Lady was a call of conversion to the whole world, and pleading to the world to stop offending God. She called the three visionaries to prayer, penance and fasting, especially prayer of the rosary in the family. This is the same core message and call to the world in Medjugorje, prayer, penance, conversion, fasting, reading the bible and holy Mass.

Children were called to modest behavior and dress and to obey their parents. Parents were called to guard and protect the innocence of their children and raise them in the commandment and law of God, and above all to fear the Lord and the loss of soul.

Our Lady gave a vision of hell to the children of Fatima, and showed them how easily souls fell into hell as she said, “Like snow falling to the ground.”

During the last apparition of Fatima on 10/13/1917 there was the great sign of the spinning sun falling to the earth in front of thousands of witnesses. However, the visionaries witness three apparitions during this event of the miracle of the sun.

The first apparition was of St. Joseph holding the child Jesus with Our Lady at their side blessing the world.

The second apparition was Jesus as “perfect man” said the visionaries, who also blessed the world.

The third was Our Lady in the Carmelite habit. Lucia’s words were, “it was the most beautiful of all.”

The first of the apparitions is the call to the human family, and one of order of importance. Especially the call to Fatherhood and the role of fathers with their children, so that they reflect the image of God the Father and His mercy. The role of fathers in the home is significant, and fathers will have to answer to God Himself for how they were stewards over the gifts God has given to them, instructing them in the Law.

The child Jesus in the arms of Joseph is the call to children to surrender to the authority of their parents in the Lord.

Lets take note here. In Medjugorje our Lady addressed the state of the family today. She called the visionaries to pray on 10/24/88 in a profound way, as if speaking about the crisis in the home. Here is the message she gave on this day:
“Dear children, your Mother wants to call you to pray for the young of the whole world, for the parents of the whole world so they know how to educate their children and how to lead them in life with good advice. Pray dear children, the situation of the young is difficult. Help them! Help parents who don’t know, who give bad advice!.”

And just prior to this she said;
“…I would like to give you peace so you can give this peace to others, so you can give this peace especially to families where hatred exists. I would like you dear children to renew the family prayer, all of you…”

Our Lady does not exclude anyone in these messages, it is clear she said “all of you.”
On 4/25/88 she gave her intention for coming to the world. She said, “God wants to make you holy…let holy mass be your life….”

Does our Lady say go work on your careers, earn lots of money and feed yourself to you are fat happy and rich? No! She is very clear about what is most important, that is your soul, and to purify it before meeting your God. She calls us to coomplete dependency on God in everything.

The other two calls from Fatima are calls to religious vocations. The priesthood “Jesus as perfect man” or spiritual fatherhood and the call to religious life; Our Lady in the Carmelite habit. (the Carmelite order is where Lucia spent the rest of her life)

Most especially is the emphasis of religious wearing their habits as one who stand out in the world. Lucia the visionary in her memories document is very direct in saying to those consecrated religious about staying in their habits, and admonishes those who have left their habit, and the penalty of God’s justice for abandonment of the vows. The scripture is clear, “God does not forget a vow.”

However in the first place, the family is where vocations are born. Holy families give birth to holy vocations. Is it no wonder that evil attacks life and the family then?

Many have forgotten Fatima as generations have passed. The call was ignored and because it was, the second world war as prophesized came to be, communism idealism spread and the third secret still was left hanging in the balance, leaving many to wonder the fate of the world.

The world was making a loud statement to heaven however, that it did not need a God.

On May 13, 1981 (anniversary of the Fatima apparitions) Pope John Paul II was shot in the chest. This pope knew the third secret of Fatima, and knew he was the pope of the prophecy. On his way to the hospital he prayed to Our Lady which was dictated by his aide in the ambulance. Through his prayer he pleading to the Mother of God, to spare the world from destruction, and to save it.

It was only days later that Our Lady made her first appearance in Medjugorje, holding the baby Jesus in her arms, on 6/24/1981, the Feast of St. John the Baptist….”prepare the way of the Lord! Make straight His path…” as the great prophet herald in biblical times.

Our Lady came again to the world in the spirit of Elijah the prophet, as though in answer to the prayer of the vicar of Christ who in his great suffering interceded for the world.

My friends, this is no secret and is public record for the discerning heart. The dates do not lie. Let those who speculate research themselves.

Our Lady proclaimed boldly saying, “I am going to give messages to the world as never before since the beginning of time…and at another date said she is calling the world to conversion FOR THE LAST TIME.” She said on 5/2/1982 “I will not appear any more on this earth.”

Since the beginning of creation, no event has ever occurred in such a way as it has until now. It was also recorded and confirmed thru Lucia the last survivor of Fatima that she would live to see the fulfillment. Thus it was so, Our Lady coming to the world to triumph in human hearts to see her Son made king once more, and devotion established to her Immaculate Heart on earth.

Thus also, Pope John Paul II, in gratitude to the Mother of God, not only consecrated Russia to her Immaculate Heart, but the whole world.

The world now is hers, and she has impregnated the world about to give birth to her Son in profound ways in human hearts.

Her plan from the beginning started with hand picked little children as her prophets and apostles, and grew from there as was spoken by many mystics and saints, but one known especially by St. Louis deMonfort. These hand picked children who she called are being formed and purified for her work. This great Marian saint speaks so eloquently of true devotion to Our Lady. Those who live this way become stripped of self love and clothe themselves with her virtues, with disinterested love, surrendering it all to the Blessed Virgin. Her intercession is so powerful to appease the just anger of God and draw down his mercy.

Many know that Our Lady is described as wearing the grey gown. There is no mistake here my friends. She has come as the handmaid of the Lord. She has work to do. She came to do some serious house cleaning, cleaning up the filthy mess in the house of God made by her children, cleaning up false prophets, false teaching, re-establishing devotion to the rosary, and the original traditions of the Church which have been almost lost in this past century.

These hand picked apostles are the ones who have been called from the beginning of the apparitions who have prepared the way of the Lord with the help and guidance of the dear Mother. Their yes, their sacrificing their lives, have birthed the universal plan which is set in course.

Almost a generation has passed, and those laborers in the vineyard worked hard to get the message and their experience known in the world. Many books, media, conferences etc. have laid the foundation. Many have had profound conversions and changes of lifestyles, and have raised their children for the age of Our Lady.

Today in the present time we have now the apostles of the apostles. They are those who heard the world of God (through the voice of the Mother) acted on it, and put them to life. Their witness, their heroic suffering, also now feed the heart of the dear Mother, and the clutter in the house of God is starting to be cleaned up. These are the ones who are witnessing and proclaiming the Word and for some at a great cost.

God’s palace that is His Church must be remodeled and restored. And here we are today in the rebuilding phase of the universal plan. We are about to enter into a new era of the plan of God for the reconstruction project of His Church and reconstruction of human souls. This plan now is going to begin with the domestic church, or that which is called the human family.

The individual conversions now need to move to the families. As go God’s people, so goes the world. The family is the original cell of society, the future of society passes through the family.

Thus a radical change will have to come for the modern society’s family. Our Lady is determined to accomplish the task.

Families will be formed, stripped and purified of all attachment to sins of the world. God’s proper order of creation must now be re-established on earth. My friends, the Lord is determined and it is set in course. Do not think if you are of God’s house that you will be spared from the task.

Husbands and wives must come to know their identity and their roles in the order of creation by God’s design. Husband is head over his wife, and wife is under her husband. The two must be one again, as a head and body working in unity for the sake of the Kingdom. Not head with head, but head and body as Christ is with the Church.

Husbands you are the Christ of the home, as Jesus Christ is the head of the Church. Husbands you are to die for your bride as Christ died for his bride. (Ephesians 5) Men must become who they are as “soldiers for Christ.” They must model their King who was meek and humble of heart.

Women will find their true identity in her true feminine nature as one who births life, and lives modestly, chaste, clothed in the virtues of the perfect woman, the Blessed Virgin Mary. She should never dishonor her husband, as the bride of Christ should never dishonor her spouse Jesus Christ.

Man’s identity comes in his true masculinity as one who sacrifices, dies to himself and his own self seeking pleasures to serve His bride and the gifts she births to him from her body, that is his offspring; his children.

Husbands must be Christlike carrying the living word in their hearts, leading his family with honor, dignity, respect and obedience to the will of God. He is in no way to abuse or dominate or lord himself over her, but to show honor, understanding and love towards his wife as the weaker female sex. (1 Peter 3:7). This scripture utter by St. Peter even said husbands if you do not treat your wives as you should in the Lord, then your prayers may be hindered.

All things must reflect charity in the home towards one another. If a husband leads his wife and family after the model of the perfect man in Jesus Christ, his wife will without doubt will naturally follow his lead knowing she is loved with an ardent love of her spouse, and bring honor to him, and the children will witness the love between the spouses.

That which I have described is the perfect family under the Law, and rooted on solid Rock, through Jesus Christ.

Realistically however, we live in an imperfect world.

I assure you my friends, it has taken me as one who was on the opposite end of the scope over 20 years to discover that in my marriage that if I wanted change in the marriage I had to be the one to change the most.

I must conclude this section here, and I am sure you will agree, there is much to consider here. There is no room for error. Our Lady said, “Dear children, this is a time of decision.” I understand these words to the very depth of my being. There is no choice as far as I am concerned. I choose life, and for this comes a price, I must decrease so that He may increase in me.

Honestly, you dear reader may choose between good or evil or God or no God. You may agree or disagree with what I have written. But as one who has lived it to the full, and has paid the price for the reality of sin almost to death, there is no other option for me. In the end when it counts all will come to know truth in the fullest of the sense of the word.

Yet for the Mother of God to be permitted to come to the world for 29 years, and for the world to continue to ignore her coming and ignore the voice of heaven, the only place I want to be is tucked under her mantle of protection when God’s justice comes. Woe to those who do not recognize the time of visitation said Jesus to St. Faustina in the message of Divine Mercy. However, blessed are those who do! Join the winning team!
Ave Maria!

St. Louis deMonfort – True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary #205-206
“What does this good mother do when we have presented and consecrated to her our soul and body and all that pertains to them without expecting anything? Just what Rebecca of old did to the little goats Jacob brought to her. (a ) She kills them, that is makes them die to the life of the old Adam, (b) she strips them of their skin, that is of their natural inclinations, their self love and self will and their every attachment to creatures, (c ) she cleans them from all stain of impurity and sin. (d) She prepares them to God’s taste and to his greater glory. As she alone knows perfectly what the divine taste is and where the greatest glory of God is to be found, she alone without any fear of mistake can prepare and garnish our body and soul to satisfy that infinitely refined taste and promote that infinitely hidden glory. Once this good Mother has received our complete offering with our merits and satisfactions through this devotion, and stripped us of our own garments, she cleans us and makes us worthy to appear without shame before our heavenly Father. She clothes us in the clean, new, precious and fragrant garments of Esau, the first born, namely her Son Jesus Christ. She keeps these garments in her house, that is to say, she has them at her disposal. For she is treasurer and universal dispenser of the merits and virtues of Jesus her Son. She gives and distributes them to whom she pleases, when she pleases, as she pleases and as much as she pleases….”

Family Honor-God’s Family Part 3

Grace and Mercy

Family Honor! This is what comes to my heart. It is all about Family Honor, and loving the members of our family, and guarding and protecting the dignity of brother and sister.

If we are family, we cannot say, “it is none of my business what they do…” Wrong! It is your business, because if one family member is hurting another family member, the whole family is affected.

It is the same with sin. If one person sins against another, then the sin perpetuates itself, and goes on and on and on. Sin is never personal my friends. And what happens in the family when someone is sinning or hurting someone else? Fights occur, anger, retaliation, name calling, divisions, divorces and so on. Some body is always getting hurt, and being torn down in spirit.

Does it stop there? No! It continues on as a ripple effect and goes to the next, because usually we cannot keep it quiet. We need to be justified when we are hurt, and we tell and tell the story over and over again, and from there it goes out into the world. Scandal, gossiping and then others continue to tell the story and so on. If it is new worthy then it reaches the news, then the world will experience it.
Do we see what is going on here?

I hope the point is made. It needs to stop somewhere. Somebody has to be the bigger person.

We are God’s family. Heaven is in our midst. We can live heaven on earth if we choose to live heaven on earth, by being brother’s keepers. By the mercy we show to another in fault and yes even if it hurts. By removing the wooden beams from our eyes and not focusing on another’s sin, but on the heart of the one who is most likely hurting more than you. Divine love my friends can flow. Divine love does not see the sin, but sees the heart, and loves beyond the sin. The Lord says, pray for those who persecute you, pray the divine blessing on them. Let the Lord decide the just punishment. But for your case, do the right thing, always.

As the Holy Spirit continues to teach He shows the model of God’s family and this is of course the Holy Family, as I have already conveyed in the previous articles. Divine love was fully present in the Holy Family because Jesus was at the center of that home. We know the images, we’ve seen the pictures. Jesus is always at the center. There is no mistake in these family photos.

However, in the gospels, the most important and most unspoken word about God’s Family is the Nazareth years with the Holy Family. The scripture is silent, and not much is known, but left to wonder for the contemplative heart.

Luke’s gospel gives the most detail about the childhood of Jesus. However before he begins to tell about the public mission of Jesus as an adult, the childhood years end with (chapter 2:51-52) “He went down with them and came to Nazareth and was obedient to them; and his mother kept all these things in her heart. The child advanced in wisdom and age and favor before God and man.”

Hmm, let’s think about this for a moment. Luke was an apostle of John. John is the beloved disciple who took the Blessed Mother into his home after the death of Jesus. Luke heard the story about the early life of Jesus directly through Blessed Mother. Blessed Mother ends her story that she is telling St. Luke here with the words, “kept all these things in her heart.”

All the fond memories of the most intimate time with Jesus and Joseph, growing together as a family. She didn’t tell anyone. There is almost a 20 year gap. Did we ever think about that? Why wouldn’t Our Lady tell the apostles more about the childhood of Jesus?

There is much to wonder here, but the Holy Spirit left it this way for hundreds of generations to come. Could it be for now, as we are being mothered by her today, as her little children, in the same way she raised Jesus that we are getting to know how she taught Jesus? Who knows? But again, there is much to reflect about and left to wonder about the Holy Family.

We can only draw our coonclusion from facts that we already know about them, by the characteristics of who they are as given in the biblical sense, historical and traditional, with knowledge of the race and culture of the people for the time.

Jesus is known as priest, prophet and king. He is the fulfillment of the Old Testament, as He said, “I have come not to abolish the Law but to fulfill the law.” (Mt. 5:17-18) The commandments never went away, but Jesus lived the commandments and its meaning to the letter.

Jesus is made known throughout the scriptures from the beginning of the bible, through His life on earth, and after His death and resurrection. This is clear for everyone.

Blessed Mother is known by her virtues, especially in faith, hope and love, by her obedience and purity (virginity). What is spoken of her in the Old Testament is through lady wisdom and the perfection of the women who found favor with God. She is all encompassing of every virtue made known to man through biblical history, and was conceived in the mind and heart of God from the very beginning of creation. (Genesis 3)

Joseph is known by the Old Testament as the son of Jacob, as one favored most by his father, and especially loved by his mother. He was subject to persecution and great suffering, but had a great and profound love for his family, his people and profound love for God. He was righteous and obedient to his faith and God. He was entrusted with the greatest treasure of the king. He was a good steward over all that was in his care and in his possessions, not keeping anything for himself, and worked a hard laborious job, for virtually nothing, considering it an honor to be employed with his skills.

The scripture unveils God’s relationship with man. B.I.B.L.E. (Basic Instructions before leaving earth).

The wars, the battles, the evils are all a reality of all that occurs not only in the world, but also with the human soul, that is man’s struggle in the flesh, battles with world powers, and the effects of these battles and provoking sin. Ultimately the battles all represent hells war waged on human life and everything good from God.
Today, the greatest evils are at work and are attacking the human family; that is God’s family. It is the battle for human life from conception through natural death, and the attack on marriage union between a man and a woman.

Sin is at epidemic proportions. Beginning with sins of the world, manifesting into sins of the flesh, while the dark forces of evil spirits play with the human conscience like puppets on strings. The Lord gave an image here as such; a puppet has no control, but hangs themselves while dangling and someone else is controlling the puppet. This puppet even gets tangled in its own string. Yet in this case satan is the one controlling the puppet human being in a dance of death. He in the end cuts the strings of the wooden puppet and they fall in the flames of hell to burn, as it finds great delight in its little game.

This is the state of today’s human soul and those who choose death over life. You are not in control of your actions as much as you like to think so.

Our family was in Medjugorje in 2007 for the 26th anniversary. Our Lady gave a profound message that night to the world. She said that God wanted to convert the whole world through her coming to Medjugorje. And that we as her children are all important in this plan.

This is a massive universal plan of reconstruction of the whole human race. To understand this, I am going to lay a basic foundation for one who still may be skeptical of the events of Medjugorje (which is written under a separate article for time and space).

However, for now hear the words loud and clear. GOD WANTS TO CONVERT THE WHOLE WORLD. God wants your conversion. There is no ifs and or buts about it. If you outwardly and in full conscience choose to ignore this call, in this time of mercy, then you will be subject to God’s Justice. It is that simple.

It is a time of decision. You must decide for God or against him. There is no more in between, lukewarm, slothfulness permitted. If you choose God, you must choose the path to conversion and work at it now while there is still time for granting mercy.The time is now, there will be no other time after this time of grace has come to its end. The whole world will experience the love of God. The whole world will see itself as God sees you. Great and terrible is this day say the saints of past. The angels tremble before it. Read and pray your scriptures and see the sign of the times in which you live.

Our Lady says, “Do not wait to convert. For the unbelievers it will be too late.” GOD WANTS YOUR CONVERSION. THERE IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT ON THIS EARTH. YOUR LIFE IS PASSING.

I write this as not to alarm but to plead with the spirit of Our Lady who calls all her children, and wants all to be in heaven with her. This is the good news for those who are awaiting the promise of the Lord. Not so good however for those who do not care. We do not know what God is going to do or how long He will permit her to be with us. But when she leaves, she said we will lament for her and the messages. We are not conscience of this significance of this grace we are being given. God the Father is most generous with the time he has given to humanity once more, as He did over 2000 years ago sending His Son into the world.

This time God sends his Mother. We rejected Jesus when He came. Will we reject his Mother too? Pray in an ardent way for the conversion of sinners, especially for those who have not come to know the love of God YET. Ave Maria!

“But understand this that there will be terrifying times in the last days. People will be self centered and lovers of money, proud, haughty, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, irreligious, callous, implacable, slanderous, licentious, brutal, hating what is good, traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure, rather than lovers of God, as they make pretence of religion, but deny its power. Reject them! For some of them slip into homes and make captives of women weighted down by sins, led by various desires, always trying to learn, but never reaching the knowledge of truth…” (2 Timothy 3:1-6)

What did they See? God’s Family part 2

And the Word became flesh...

A Quote from St. Louis de Monfort (True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, #217):

“The soul of Mary will be communicated to you to glorify the Lord. Her spirit will take the place of yours to rejoice in God her Savior, but only if you are faithful to the practices of this devotion. As St. Ambrose says, May the soul of Mary be in each one of us to glorify the Lord! May the spirit of Mary be in each one of us to rejoice in God!” When will that happy day come asks a saintly man of our own day whose life was completely wrapped up in Mary, ‘when God’s Mother is enthroned in men’s hearts as Queen, subjecting them to the dominion of her great and princely Son. When will souls breathe Mary as the body breathes air?” When that time comes wonderful things will happen on earth. The Holy Spirit finding his dear Spouse present again in souls, will come down into them with great power. He will fill them with His gift, especially wisdom, by which they will produce wonders of grace. My dear friend, when will that happy time come, that age of Mary, when many souls, chosen by Mary and given her by the most High God, will hide themselves completely in the depths of her soul, becoming living copies of her, loving and glorifying Jesus. That day will dawn only when the devotion I teach is understood and put into practice…”

This reflection continued from the Message of the Mother of God to the world on 1/2/2011

I will begin where I left off from the previous article as the Holy Spirit continued to teach about divine love. It bears repeating that Jesus chose to come into the world in utter poverty. Even the bed he laid in was borrowed from animals. There was no comfortable hospital bed for him to lay his head as we have today in elaborate maternity wards. God chose it this way.

God chose to be born of a woman. He chose to be born into a family with a mother and a father. This man and woman, Joseph and Mary were poor, humble and obedient to God.

He chose to be born to a couple who each sanctified their lives by serving the Lord, not only in deed and action, but in their bodies as well. This holy couple rejected wealth, honor and stature. This is where divine love chose to begin to exist and be born. That is to a man and a woman who emptied themselves from all self love, no attachment to material needs, not puffed up with knowledge and pride. They gave everything they had to stay in poverty; they had no need of outside human love but existed in complete charity with other human beings. Their only focus was to serve God and nothing else.

Therefore the way was made clear for divine love to be born in this home. There was plenty of room for God to enter and fill the space with His love. Joseph and Mary prepared their lives making ready themselves as empty vessels, awaiting this moment with great expectation and joy, for this very moment, to receive not only divine love, but to receive it in His wholeness in the flesh.

All shame that Joseph may have had not finding a suitable place for his bride was removed when His eyes fell upon His God in the flesh, being held in His Mother’s arms. Nothing else existed in that cave except for the light that came to the world through the infant child, and the three of them huddled close together in their own human warmth, in holy adoration and amazement of the gift they have just beheld. Their eyes, nor their hearts could not see anything else, but wonder and amazement.

The shepherds came after hearing the news from the angels of heaven who proclaimed the glory of God and the birth of the Son.

What did they see when they arrived at that cave? Was it only a father and mother with a new born child? No, it couldn’t have been just that, as this would happen every day in normal life.

The presence of God and divine love was in their midst. All of Heaven was opened on this holy night, and the earth was filled with God’s glory and His grace. The announcement came, announcing the birth of the Savior to obscure shepherds who ran in haste without hesitation to see if it was true. Why didn’t the whole town of Bethlehem come? The grotto was near the city wasn’t it? Why didn’t those people know about God’s arrival?

So, what did they hear? What did they see to make them run in haste and to see a man and a woman with a babe in the cave? It was the experience and being in the presence itself. They left praising God for all they heard and saw that night.

How much to wonder is left open for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. Children are born every day. Is there such an event that takes place for a human child as their was for the divine child? No, I think not.

So we have to ask, what kind of child has been given to us this Christmas?

Matthew’s gospel tells about the arrival of the three kings, where we celebrate the Epiphany. These kings came from foreign lands following a star, a sign from heaven. Three kings who represent the gentiles in the Jewish term. Where were the people of God? Why didn’t God’s own people recognize their king in their midst, or even knew that He came? So much left for the human heart to contemplate…

But the magi were overwhelmed with joy at what they saw. What did they see? There was no reception or party taking place. What was it that this holy gift of God gave to them that they in turn opened their treasures and offered it to the Holy Family for the divine child?

So what did they all receive? There was nothing but a family in an empty cave who have just received new life. There was only the poor holy couple embracing and adoring their gift. Could the love of God be so great that it just poured out of all of them? We should know such love.

Another thought the Holy Spirit led me to, was that Mary knew how the child was conceived. She made it clear she had no relations with a man. Who can comprehend what she might have been thinking; not just by her gift of faith was God conceived, but she was impregnated with divine love in her human body. And through her human body, divine love was born into the world, flesh of her flesh.
She allowed herself to be an empty vessel in her feminine body in her lowliness and her poverty; having no attachment to sin what so ever. She was ready to be filled with divine power. Divine power consumed her and filled her so much so to full term to give birth to Him in the world.

So what did she see? What did she hear when her child cried out? Imagine her joy to see the fruit of her prayer before her eyes, in this holy moment, knowing her redemption was at hand. Did anything else matter or exist in this hour for her? No! She was consumed with the love of God.

Joseph knew how the child was conceived. He had no relations with his bride, and vowed chastity. She is the holy of holies, the ark of the new covenant, whose body carried God. Joseph knew that no one could touch the holy of holies and live. By his free will, he chose to offer his body for the sake of his bride in virginity. (Remember, he was going to divorce her quietly and not expose her to shame [Mt. 1:19] possibly thinking she had committed adultery-and great anxiety overcame him at the thought of such an action). Mary didn’t tell Joseph she was pregnant with God’s child, and she began to show in her body her maternal state. She submitted to the Holy Will of God and waited for God to tell Joseph Himself. What trust and faith she had at such a great risk, to face death, humiliation and shame?

Joseph knew however about the profound faith of his bride by her witness to faith, her prayer life, and her virtues. He knew she was consecrated to God from her birth, and offered in the temple. He knew she was a virgin. He experienced her holiness and her purity, as the temple maiden and as a gift to him. He knew God was with her, and by reason and love kept him from exposing her. The holy couple was in complete union with God’s will in spirit before even meeting in person.

What kind of love is this we have to ask our self? This kind of love cannot be comprehended, but speaks to the human soul, and draws the heart to wonder.
Joseph and Mary experienced the love of God. They knew in the depth of their hearts that He was their Creator, and they were mere creatures. They were gifted with a profound faith. The faith of Mary and Joseph received from their ancestors and the Word of God was so infused in them they had no fear to offer themselves for the salvation of souls.

Blessed Mother trusted in the love of God knowing that God would guard her and protect her, even from the law that said she was to be stoned for her condition if it were committed in sin. She trusted the Father for providing for her a husband who would guard her dignity and preserve her virginity, even though she was offered up as a temple maiden for marriage.

Blessed Mother had to trust that her husband would accept her condition with child and not divorce her or even worse, put her to death, and still hold on waiting for God to reveal the truth to her husband. She always was in complete surrender and submission to the divine will and to her holy spouse.

If I am repetitive as I write, it is for a reason, to drive this thought home. There is no doubt for the one who prays.

Joseph’s faith speaks of the same of his character. He was a righteous man, said the scriptures. He suffered with great anxiety, but he also had to trust in the divine will to fortify him in faith. He had to live out in full what the forefathers proclaimed before him, under obedience to the Law of God, and with profound love for his bride, knowing she is gift to him. Joseph was responsible and entrusted with much, the Son of God as his own son, and the woman who gave birth to him. He could not but turn to God for answers in prayer and wait for the Lord to respond to him, who most likely kept in him suspense and anticipation.

The fruit of their faith, with the love of God and their obedience to Him is what gave birth to divine love into the world.

Therefore, from all these experiences they lived combined and all they suffered in heart and in flesh and by the faith they lived, now they see the fruit before their very eyes, the uncreated gift, begotten by God.

This story only begins, because in full knowledge both Joseph and Mary knew that they do not solely possess their child, but that He is a gift from God. They knew He came to bring salvation to cold human hearts, and would be offered up to God for the salvation of souls, by His own will.

The holy couple will hand their child over into the hands of those who will torture their Son, accuse Him, mock Him, beat Him and put Him to death.

Imagine the anxiety of a parent having full knowledge of the future destiny of their child and what was going to happen to their child who would face a cruel and torturous death. Some parents today can relate to this, as children who suffer from disease and lose their life at the hands of others. Yet gut wrenching to say the least, especially to one that you love, and is born of your flesh.

Yes, Joseph and Mary knew full well by their scriptures and the voice of the prophets the future of this child, who would redeem mankind.

Now, here we are today, over 2000+ years later. God again sent His Mother to the world to prepare the world for the new Advent of her Son, to call the world back to salvation by conversion of heart. She said he will not be born into the world as He was 2000 years ago, but would be born in our hearts instead.

Today Our Lady comes to an obscure little village much like that of where she lived 2000 years ago, which was at that time very primitive, about 30 years behind modern society, where she said was the most faith in the world. She came with her infant Son in her arms on June 24, 1981, veiling and unveiling him before the eyes of the children who beheld her presence.

Some may say this is impossible for God? But those of faith can say with certainty “Nothing is impossible for God.” And for a great plan to convert the whole world, it has to take a whole generation to change the hearts of men, to know God once more. I think He knows what He is doing. So who are we to say this cannot be done.

However all the more, has been foretold by countless saints, the apostles, and mystics from centuries past.

Our Lady wants to give her Son again to the world, this same world, the same human creatures who rejected Him from the beginning, who tortured and murdered her Son. Yes, we are the same people, the same creatures by nature. Unfathomable to human mind, but not to divine love, Who offered Himself to death to show the world that God exists, and to bridge the way to the heart of the Father.

Our Lady said in very loving words with little baby Jesus in her arms, “I and my Son want to give you love, joy and peace…”

She again with the Father in Heaven are freely giving their Son Jesus to the world, knowing the state of our weakened sinful human hearts, and what we will do with Him again.

Can we receive this gift, freely?

Can we accept the responsibility that comes with receiving this gift?

Do we possess it as our own or do we give Him freely as He was given to us freely; knowing that we may be laughed at, scoffed at, mocked, humiliated, accused, ridiculed, beaten, tortured or even put to death because of Him and for His name?

Can you receive this love of God, or are our hearts so filled with distractions, puffed up pride, hatred, envy or with evil thoughts and deeds?

Are we consumed with wealth, money and power and greed?

Then sadly if so, you are the inn keeper who said, “There is no room Joseph for your family to enter, and will slam the door in his face, who desires to have his son loved by you.

Can we receive freely divine love offered to us daily in the holy sacrifice of the mass in the mystical body of Christ, with our whole heart in holy adoration, paying him homage to the God who freely gives Himself at all cost to you?

How is the world going to receive the love of God, if it is the very world who rejects His love, from the original source of love itself? There is no room to freely receive love, too much clutter.

Behold the Mother with child who comes once more for the last time, with her Son. These are her words, “for the last time”.

In the world we can see already the fruit of the loss of God in a Godless society. If we do not have God the Father in the first place, then we will believe in anything-and so, here we are today, making all kinds of idols to worship in our gluttonous society. And I repeat again, still the mother comes tirelessly and freely gives her Son again, and again to the same human people who will repeatedly reject Him and Her Motherly love.

What kind of love is this that is freely given to us?

Therefore, I ask again, if we cannot accept the divine gift, what makes us think we can accept one another as gift, as God’s people, as God’s family?

And if we cannot accept Him in fullness of truth in our human nature in this world, what makes us think we will be able to stand before Him in fullness of truth in the next world?

Yes my dear friends Our Lady is praying for the world today. She is praying for you and me, that we become cognizant, fully aware that we are God’s family, and that we will choose good over evil, and life over death. That we will choose the path that leads to her Son, and her Son will lead us to the Father.

From the depth of my soul I feel the words of our holy Mother in this message. My heart is heavy, knowing I still have a long journey to walk, yet consolation is mine, for I do not walk it alone, but hand in hand with my Mother.
Ave Maria!

Again this concludes another section from the counsel of the Holy Spirit about Our Lady’s message to the world given on 1/2/2011. And still yet more is still to come, which will be unveiled as part III, Fatima? Medjugorje? Connected?

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him…” (John 3:16-17)
