April 2, 2011 Message to Mirjana

Medjugorje Message to Mirjana – April 2, 2011

Dear children,with motherly love I desire to open the heart of each of you and to teach you personal unity with The Father. To accept this, you must comprehend that you are important to God and that He is calling you individually. You must comprehend that your prayer is a conversation of a child with The Father; that love is the way by which you must set out – love for God and for your neighbor.

That is, my children, the love that has no boundaries, that is the love that emanates from truth and goes to the end. Follow me, my children, so that also others, in recognizing the truth and love in you, may follow you. Thank you.

[Once again Our Lady called us to pray for our shepherds, our priests, and said: “They have a special place in my heart. They represent my Son.”]

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!

My Motherly Heart Prays, part I

I and my Son want to give you love....

January 2, 2011 message to Mirjana Soldo

Dear children,

Today I call you to unity (communion) in Jesus, my Son. My motherly heart prays that you may comprehend that you are God’s family. Through the spiritual freedom of will, which the Heavenly Father has given you, you are called to become cognizant (to come to the knowledge) of the truth, the good or the evil.

May prayer and fasting open your hearts and help you to discover the Heavenly Father through my Son. In discovering the Father, your life will be directed to carrying out of God’s will and the realization of God’s family, in the way that my Son desires (wishes). I will not leave you alone on this path. Thank you.

Mirjana felt that she could say to Our Lady: ‘ We have all come to you with our sufferings and crosses. Help us, we implore you.’ Our Lady extended her hands towards us and said: Open your hearts to me. Give your sufferings to me. The Mother will help.

How many of us take these words to heart? How many of us hear the word and act on it? The Mother is praying that we comprehend these words.

Thank you dear Mother for praying for me, and opening the Word that I may understand its meaning. With the Holy Spirit, help me to convey the word, and to put it to life in me.

Jesus was clear in the gospels; you are a friend of Jesus and will remain in His love if you live his commandments and blessed is the one who hears the word of God and acts on it. (John 15:10-14)

The holy Mother always lives the words, “do whatever He tells you.” (John 2:5)

So, to be God’s family…this is a great call in the words themselves comes with a great responsibility. It is about family honor now. How do we live as a family member of God?

Very simply put, we have been given a model to follow. God’s family began with the Holy Family, through Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Today I have received a tremendous teaching of this recent message from Our Lady.

There has been so much to the teaching, the task for me is to articulate it where one could easily reflect, take into their heart, and then put it to life. I pray to the Holy Spirit to convey His words all the further to make up for what I lack in my human fallibility.

I will begin with how the Lord began with me at the break of day this morning.
I woke up to a homily on the local Catholic radio station and the priest began to preach about “receiving love.” Of course this homily spoke to me right where I was at. He gave the analogy of an empty bank account. You can write all the checks you want he said, but if you do not have the money in the checking account your checks are no good, and they are going to bounce. You cannot give what you do not have.

Well, I thought, this is us clearly, meaning my family life-and like most. We are always perplexed at how we are always broke, and cannot seem to find a way to get ahead. (I must clarify my friends, my life is an open book, and is always used as to help others on the path to their conversion – nothing more. I share by example and how the Lord has taught us).

But hearing these words from this priest triggered my attention. God knew how to reach me, as I am praying to understand why it’s so, as the Lord also keeps repeating, “you lost the love you once had…” Yes, this is true, I am not the same, nor do I have the same zeal and fervor of faith as I did at the beginning of my conversion when I was on fire for God.

I am war torn and battle fatigued, and seeking to be renewed. But God is calling me out. I am not loving as I should. And then my soul was flooded with questions as if examining my conscience, as I felt the Lord convicting me in so many ways. I was in my car driving from one parish to another to reach an adoration chapel, just to sit and chew on these words, and I spent over 4.5 hours in dialog with the Holy Spirit before the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar.

Therefore, what I am about to share, is from the heart, for me and to share with you dear readers, as I also must put this message to life myself.

The questions that came were very stern as I kept hearing the song, “What’s love got to do with it?”

The Lord said, “Where do you draw your love from?

What source does love come from? Well, I thought, I am with Jesus almost every day in holy adoration. Now I have to give my attention to how am I spending this time with Him, the eternal spouse of my soul….

Do we live for human or divine love? (in what order)

Are we looking for love in all the wrong places?

He reminded me of His words months ago, saying Love has no value unless it is poured out…and the image of the crucified came to my heart.

Then the homily I heard this morning came back, as the priest spoke about appreciating the gift from God. With love comes appreciation and gratitude. Whew, I wanted to shrink in my seat before God.

Again I heard the voice of the Lord say to my heart, you cannot say you love God if you cannot appreciate the gift of those whom He puts into your life, or are thankful for the blessing you already have.

Then He took me back to the bank account. Our account is always empty…there is nothing there. We struggle to make ends meet to just cover from check to check our monthly expenses and to feed the family. Sometimes scraping change to buy milk or eggs. Yes, this is the level of poverty we have come to.

The Lord is telling me what I am giving of myself is not giving with the heart, it is the writing of bad checks or has become routine for me-as though going through the motions. There is no love in my efforts. Of course my heart began to sink as again I see myself in truth once more.

Jesus repeated to my heart, “You must draw your love from my strength, divine love.” In His love, He allowed Himself to be crucified. Well, I shutter at this, because I’ve walked this path many times, in fact I am still nailed to the cross. But I am disgruntled, complaining, and expecting something in return. Now I am convicted in truth…I am not loving with divine love but of my own weakened human love that carries no weight.

The Lord freely gives His love. He is always there to give His love. The problem the Lord said with the human heart is that “we do not freely receive” this love. The word I repeat is “freely receive.”

We have lost love for God, the passion that comes from divine love for the salvation of souls, which is true authentic heartfelt love for God. The Love of Jesus drove Him to the cross. We expect God to give and give when we need Him, but do we give our self in return, without complaint I may add?

We have forgotten, God is the Father. He is the Creator of life. We would not exist on this earth if He did not will it so. Our pride blinds us to this truth.

Every human being has a conscience, said Our Lady. Every human being is made in the image and likeness of God. (Genesis chpt.1) Why? Because we are made up of body, soul and spirit. We have a God given will to discern good or evil. But most often we do not exercise our conscience or our will to choose good. Our natural inclination is to sin. We are not naturally good in nature my friends-we have a weakened and fallen nature in the flesh. If there is any good in us, that credit is to due to God whose spirit is within the human person, and willed it so.

If we do not receive love from the originator of love itself our source for existence, and if we do not have God our Father in His proper order in our lives, then I assure you, everything in your personal life will be disordered.

As a human race we are choosing in full conscience to ignore that God exists, and that He sent His own Son into the world as a gift to the world. He did not send Jesus into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world from itself. (John 3:16)

Why does the world need a savior? I ask this question as well; can a human being save himself from damnation without God? Absolutely NOT!

What do we need to be saved from? Sin and death! Eternal death that is. Jesus made it clear when He returns at the end of our life on this earth or at the end of the world, which ever comes first, we will need to give an account for our deeds. And He made it more clear of that those who do not live His way, and practice evil deeds, will not enter into heaven. (Revelation 22:14-21) Heaven is for the one who repents of sin, and perseveres to the end.

If we choose not to accept this gift of God in His only begotten Son who is our salvation, and we choose to ignore what He tells us by His Word and His established authority on earth-the Church, we choose death and hell over life.

So dear friends, how can you say in good conscience I have life with God? Or Jesus Christ is my personal Lord and savior (as some would say). Is He?

How can you say I am a good Christian and I love God above everything, if you only pick and choose what you want to live and follow from the example of Jesus, and not the whole message?

How can you say you love God if you cannot live with the very gift God has given you in your life for your sanctification, such as your spouse, your children, your family members, or your neighbors/co-workers etc?

Dear friends, if you rely only on your own strength, that is “weakened human love” you will fail and those around you will convince you of your failure by words and actions. They will express the lack of love they received from you, by their anger, rebellion, hatred, or mockery and more. Division will creep in and the door will be wide open for a whole mess of darkness. Because the love of God is not in us, and we are not living as God’s family members.

Jesus Christ is the summit and source of divine love, who in unconditional and in an incomprehensible way gives Himself in fullness, every day in the holy offering of the mass.

From the beginning of the existence of Jesus Christ in the flesh the love of God willed it so that He should come into the world in utter poverty; naked, cold, and in darkness.

He still comes to the world every day, exposed in His flesh as He is in the mystical way, into the cold and darkness of our hearts and souls.

So what has changed from that holy night? Nothing! It is the same God who was born in the cave with Joseph and Mary, who is the one who is present in the most holy Eucharist that comes into the dark cave of our souls, to bring His light desiring to be born anew in me and in you.

I pray that divine love, not human love, but divine love will grow in His fullness in my heart and in the heart of poor aching mankind.

For this section I will stop here, and will continue on as I have said in further parts for greater contemplation and reflection. The Lord is gracious in His Word and counsel.
Ave Maria!

“If you knew the gift of God and who is saying to you, “Give me a drink.” you would have asked him and he would have given you living water…” (John 5:10)

2010 in review

I See in your Heart Death?

I Bring You Hope and Joy

Message, 25. November 2010

Dear children,

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

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

Thank you for having responded to my call.=

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Do not Reject Me…

With motherly perseverence and love I call you...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Destroy the Darkness of death in you…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ave Maria.

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