Jesus cleans the interior temple part 2

My heart is ready Father....

“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, yo 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)

I sigh as I continue to write this. As though the Lord continued to confirm the Word and His teaching, after I had posted last nights article in part 1, together our family prayed the novena, with the liturgy of hours (the prayer of the Church).

The evening prayer in the psalms were confirming again the teaching of the ‘rich young man’ and attachment to sin. The evening prayer began with as said above, ‘you cannot serve God and mammon…” Psalm 49 was the theme titled “Emptiness of Riches.”

My heart was grieving as I could see visibly what attachment of sin has done to the human person, and the though of souls being lost for this, whew…it is hard to think, because it is just not necessary!

Our Lady just two months ago, gave the above message to the world, echoing further what we are talking about. She said she is persevering in her motherly love desiring what is best for her little children, knowing her children continue to find themselves in great trouble, in jepardy of losing their souls.

She said to stop! Look within yourself! See how sinful you are! Be aware of your sins and pray for forgiveness!

Let’s just take a moment on just these words. I am a mother. There have been many times I have had to stop and sit down with my children, to take strong corrective measures to stop the behavior they were doing causing much disruption in the home, or harm to themselves.

Maybe my child hurt someone else. I would march them over to that person, and make them apologize for what they had done. Now, a child being a child as they are, don’t always like to admit that they are wrong. They may refuse to apologize and may throw a fit of a temper.

How does a parent respond to this? Any good parent will take corrective action to stop the fit, and stay the course of making sure the child does the right thing.

It is no different for Our Lady who is the perfect mother. She is the same mother who is sitting us down, telling us that we are being hard hearted and stubborn, and we need to take corrective measures and stop committing the habitual sins we are committing. She calls us out in our pride, saying we cannot admit we are weak. Just like the little child who does not want to admit they are wrong.

However in her case, if we are able to humble ourselves confess our sins, receive absolution from the priest then we receive the light of Jesus in our hearts to strengthen us, and come back into communion with God.

So why is it so hard to do? Because the bigger the pride the bigger the stronghold over us.

The Lord continues the teaching. It becomes harder for me to write with understanding He has given, however in the end my dear friends there is hope. So please bear with me as the Lord continues to pierce hearts in truth. Come Holy Spirit!

From the liturgy of hours, here is a quote from Ps. 49 begins with “Hear this all you peoples, give heed all you who dwell in the world, men both low and high, rich and poor alike!”

There is no body excluded in these words; God speaks to all. Yes, even the poor have attachments to sin and the material. The psalmist continues and said, “why should I fear in evil days this malice of the foes who surround me, men who trust in their wealth, and boast of the vastness of their riches? For no man can buy his own ransom, or pray a price to God for his life. The ransom of his soul is beyond him. He cannot buy life without end, nor avoid coming to the grave….”

The rich young man in the previous parable sought to buy his way into eternal life, and Jesus countered the offer, telling him to strip himself of everything he had and give it to the poor, then to follow Jesus. The wealthy cannot buy their way into God’s Kingdom, and the psalmist says further, “…in his riches, man lacks wisdom; he is like the beasts that are destroyed. This is the lot of those who trust in themselves…like sheep driven to the grave, where death shall be their shepherd…”

My friends, this is the Word of God; the unchanging Word of God that is firm in heaven. Conversion is the only answer, and detachment from selfish passions, desires, material, money, wealth and sin must begin now.

Make no mistake, the Lord is determined to get our hearts in property order, and cleaned out. Thy Kingdom Come!

After the Lord gave the examination of conscience in the first part, the Lord then led me to Psalm 73, and spoke future about those who practice such deeds. No! It does not end yet but heavier I am afraid.

I cry out, “Lord have mercy on us sinners! Do not look upon what we truly deserve dear Father, but see us through the Sacred Heart of your Son who offered Himself up as ransom for our souls! I heard Him say in my heart, “How much more can I bear of this generation?”

The Lord went on to say through the psalm, when we see the prosperity of those who have much, we become envy of the arrogant, and then we lose our balance; or in other words, we fall off the path God has chosen for us.

Here the psalmist wonders if he is suffering in vain, while the rich get richer, and the poor just continue to suffer more.

He speaks of the rich as being adorned in their pride as a necklace; that is they are yoked and chained to their sin. He said, violence clothes them as a robe; or in other word, they are covered in a stronghold of evil which controls them and over powers them. Out of their stupidity comes sin…stupid? Evil thoughts, flood their hearts; that is their hearts are cluttered in their own selfish passions and desires.

They scoff and spout their malice; that is they brag out into the world boasting in their own self proclaimed goodness which is contrary to God. Remember, God opposes the proud! They may say, ‘see look at all I have done; now god helped me.’ From on high they utter threats and set their mouths against heaven; that is in their pride and arrogance, they boast they do not need God, because of their self proclaimed greatness and riches, and blaspheme the holy name and His holy ones and drag others with them, making prisoners of those who are near them and leading them into the pit.

They ask proudly, does God really know? Does the most High have any knowledge? Such then are the wicked always carefree, increasing more in their wealth. Their hearts become hardened towards God and to those around them.

They have no room left inside of them for God because of their attachment to their sin, and because of this, they stay and swim in their own misery always blaming others for what ever may be wrong in their lives, because they cannot see themselves, they are too blinded by their folly.

The spiritual house of such a soul is so cluttered with things and self love, filled with entertainment, and making merry of themselves hiding behind the mask, while the whole world is passing away in front of their very eyes.

They do not know the love of God, which why they ask, “Does God really know or see anything?” They are the ones called spiritually blind and steeped so deep into darkness almost without hope of seeing no light to guide them out of darkness. And thus for this they find themselves prey for the enemy, and bring death to those around them.

Every door and window of the soul of this spiritual house is left wide open for hell to enter and have its way with them.

If any light comes their way, in their shame they hide and quickly blow it out for they prefer the darkness over light.

The Lord then said again, “How long must I put up with such creatures? For thus it is written zeal for my house shall consume me, says the Lord.”

Here is where the Lord stopped. I felt the bitterness and pain He was suffering in His heart, longing for men to turn from the path of wickedness and turn to God.

Our Lady has been coming to the world for over 29 years, and has been calling the world to pray for unbelievers, that is those who do not know the love of God yet.

How is a soul such as this as just described from the scriptures going to come to know God’s love? One would think that it is hopeless to the point of despair. Ah my friends, do not under estimate the power of God’s mercy. It is for such souls that Jesus came to the world. It is for this very reason the mercy of God sent His mother to come and touch hearts.

Remember Jesus said he did not come for the righteous, but for sinners! Understand however, what was just described above, is in every man’s heart in some way or another. We all carry a form of pride, envy, and selfish passions in our hearts. Do not think you have escaped and say thank God I am not like that! You would be wrong! If you don’t believe me. Ask the Lord yourself, to show you who you are in TRUTH by His truth.

A side note. I did this. I wanted to know my sins. I was determined to conquer the sin in me. I ask the Lord to allow me to experience His love, or as some know what will come in the event of the illumination of souls. I wanted to know so I could amend my sin. My friends, the Lord honored my request. And that very day when it occurred, I was before the Most Blessed Sacrament, and I saw all in truth right before my eyes, every ugly feature in my soul. Shame consumed me, and I stayed hidden in the chapel for 4 hours not able to face one soul.

The Lord in His mercy took pity on me however, and in an instant it would seem He clothed me with His love, and encourged me to work all the more harder, and persevere to the end, and He and I will accomplished the task to my last dying breath.

Therefore, you dear family of God who call yourselves children of God, and children of the dear Mother. Does this sound like your former way as just described? I know and have affirmed it describes my former way.

You have been called out of darkness and are now in the light. You know what suffering is and know the pain of the loss of God. Should not your heart take pity and compassion on such a soul, who needs more of the divine love than what you seek for your self.

To love such a sinner takes heroic virtue. From this we learn from the saints who have witnessed before us, and learn from their example of faith and their love for hardened sinners. It is the love that Jesus has even for those who commit the worst sin against Him, and for those who still crucify him today. It is not a love of this world, but a love that is eternal. Draw from this source of love…we need it in the world today! We need a mother. We need a Father. Embrace them!

Be a witness to those who do not know the love of God, and proclaim the word, not only by word but in deed.

Our Lady said if someone is proud, show them what it looks like to be humble. If someone asks you for something, give it to them freely. If you have a special attachment to something, give it up and give it to the poor. Sure, you may have harassment or may be laughed at for your good deed; but triumph in this moment, because in your heart you know you did what was right.

These are just little ways of light. Begin to store up treasure in heaven today. You must realize there is already enough treasure stored here in your possession on earth. Remember you cannot take it with you, it stays in this world. The only thing that goes with you into eternal life is your soul and your sins that remain with you; unless you have worked to make yourself clean and spotless without blemish, and persevere to the end. It all stays with you.

Yes my friends it does matter how you live your life on this earth. Do not be the foolish rich man who sought to buy his inheritance, who left in His shame faced with truth and chose the world over God.

Become the poor beggar who has need of everything from God, especially His mercy and humble yourselves before His almighty throne, and beg for mercy for poor sinners. Maybe He will take pity upon you.

“The justice of God has been manifested apart from the law, even though both law and prophets bear witness to it – that justice of God which works through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. All men have sinned and are deprived of the glory of God. All men are no undeservedly justified by the gift of God through the redemption wrought in Christ Jesus. Through His blood, God made him the means of expiation for all who believe, He did so to manifest his own justice, for the sake of remitting sins committed in the past – to manifest his justice in the present…” (Romans 3:21-26)

The Cleansing of the Interior Temple part I

Dear children, listen to me...

“Dear children! Also today I call you to conversion. You are concerned too much about material things and little about spiritual ones. Open your hearts and start again to work more on your personal conversion. Decide everyday to dedicate time to God and to prayer until prayer becomes a joyful meeting with God for you. Only in this way will your life have meaning and with joy you will contemplate eternal life. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (4/25/2000)

Dear friends, it appears the Lord isn’t finished with us, and I get the feeling He’s only just begun. I felt very strong in my heart that the Lord wants to begin to move in hearts as He has not done before. And this message from Our Lady confirms it all the more. Our hearts are in the wrong place, and we are distracted by many things.

The Lord has shown however that because of this there are still many of His people who still resist the mercy He is permitting in this time of grace, and are consumed with fear of detaching themselves from their sin and misdeeds and cling to things that do not matter; that is material things.

I am perplexed by this, as I know many good Catholic Christians who try to work hard at practicing their faith and desire to do God’s will. But I see it is not as easy as it seems.

As I entered the church yesterday, before I even sat down I heard the Lord speak in the depth of my heart. He said, “Time to remove false gods!” I thought, hmm I thought we’d been doing this all along, is there more dear Jesus that is displeasing to you in my heart? I just received the sacrament of reconciliation, so I was a little unclear about His Word.

So I humbled myself in the presence of God and I said in prayer, “have mercy on me oh God for I am a weak and pitiful creature. Illumine my soul, and bring to light that which displeases you.” And the Lord was silent.

As the holy mass began, the readings were fitting the word I heard in my heart, from Ephesians 6 as putting on the armor of God, and then Matthew’s gospel 19:16-30, the parable of the Rich Young Man. My heart was stirring, and I knew the Lord was going to speak through His priest. So I listened with attentiveness and pulled out my journal and took notes.

And as I suspected, the homily was right on to exactly what the Lord said as I entered the church. The priest spoke about the inheritance of the kingdom of God, and the rich young man who wanted to know more about how to receive eternal life.

As I listened more, I again felt, this was not only for me to hear but the Lord wanted the Word again brought to light, and sent out into the world. Praise God! For His mercy and His desire to set captives free!

He began to say, we are too focused on ourselves, and too focused on our treasures, our material things, and seeking wealth, which of course is contrary to God’s plan for man’s salvation. Jesus taught us that we cannot serve two masters, that is God and money. We will love one and hate the other. If we have a love for money we have no room for God in our hearts, because we are consumed with how to make more money.

The priest reminded us that the devil said in the beginning, “I will not serve!” And convinced the man and the woman that they can be just like god having everything.

Aren’t we just like this? When God moves into our comfort zone, what happens, we say, “Oh no, not there, I don’t want to go there.” Then we close up our hearts, say that is too hard, and go back to our former comfortable way.

Let’s look at the scripture now about the “Rich Young Man”. Come Holy Spirit, spirit of truth enlighten our minds and our hearts to help us understand the word spoken by the Lord. Jesus you said you would send us the Paraclete who will come to convict the world in truth and remind us of all that you said. May your spoken word be enfleshed in me.

The Lord took me to the verse where the rich young man said, that he has observed the law as was spoken by the Lord. It appears that this man had everything, and everything was perfect in his life, thinking God was blessing him. If he was listening to the elders of the temple, he was following the law of God as prescribed for that time. So he asks more, what is he lacking still?

Many Catholics today think this. They think they are Catholic, they have the fullness of truth, and that is enough for them. The Lord is saying however to the contrary, it is not enough to just “be Catholic.”

After this Jesus gave an astonishing teaching and threw a curve ball to this young man who thought he had everything in check. Jesus said, “IF YOU WANT TO BE PERFECT, go and sell everything you have and give it to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. THEN come follow me.” (Mt. 19:21)

The anointed word is “if you want to be perfect…” because later on in the gospels and in the new testament, Jesus and the apostles speak about perfection as being holy. “Be perfect for just as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (Mt. 5:48, Jas. 1:4)

Jesus is telling the rich young man he is not giving enough of himself, perhaps knowing that he is attached to his wealth, and knew he was not able to give up the comforts of his lifestyle. But Jesus was also clear that he could not follow Him until he gave away everything to the poor. He was too attached to his things.

The Lord had me reflect on this young man. He taught that this man thought of himself as one who was already perfect having everything and practicing his faith as well. And in the eyes of his peers he was of good stature and held in high esteem.

But here he is before His God in truth. The young man realizes he is lacking something when he hears the Lord speak and he wants what Jesus has. Possibly thinking he could by his way to the kingdom of God, he asked the Lord what must he do to inherit these riches of the heavenly treasure, or “how much will it cost?”

Isn’t this how many think today? Isn’t it how the Pharisees taught the people of that time?

However, we already know the price that it cost Jesus to establish the kingdom of God. It cost his life. He came into the world poor and left poor.

Jesus asked the rich young man to give more of himself. The Lord knew he had many attachments to his wealth and his property. He was clinging on to it and most likely was very selfish with his goods and his riches, so we can see greed rearing its ugly face here, because in verse 19:22, the scripture said, “he went away sad because he had many possessions.” He had to choose between God and money. It is obvious what His choice was.

Remember Jesus said He came into the world to fulfill the law of God, and He lived the law to explain the meaning of the heart of the law which the people did not comprehend. Give with all your heart, when you give, do not let anyone see or boast in your offering, but give with the heart where only the Lord knows where it come from. Give with love of neighbor, not obligation, but out of love!

The example of Jesus in this story says that there is NOTHING “NO THING” ON THIS EARTH MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

As we continue on with the story of the rich young man, the apostles are astonished by Jesus’ response to the young man. They too most likely had many possessions asked the Lord, then who can enter the Kingdom because they gave up everything of their life to follow Jesus. In fact when the Lord called them, they dropped everything in the instant the Lord spoke and followed Him.

I found it very interesting the Word of God who said in reply to the apostles, when they asked about themselves and giving up everything for the Lord.

Jesus said in reply, “Amen I say to you that you who have followed me, in the ‘NEW AGE, when the Son of Man is seated on His throne in glory, you will yourselves sit on twelve thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. Everyone who has given up houses, brothers or sisters, or father or mother or children or lands for the sake of my name will receive a hundred times more, and WILL INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE…”

There it is! The blessing for what happens when we listen to the Word of God and act on it.

We live today in a so called modern society that calls itself a “New Age” or a progressive society, as if it were a new era. Honestly however we are the same human race, the same people so really nothing new as we would like to think of ourselves. Yet in this so called new age of time, people who think of themselves as progressive and the church being ancient who have no need of God, turn to many other forms of god and godlessness.

Their first god in this case is wealth and riches and many things of the material. From there they will believe anything thinking they are open minded. They will use false forms of worship, occult practices, today it is a multitude of spiritualisms such as all focus on the body and flesh in idol worshipping of the body, overt exercise, yoga, and such. Not needing God they think themselves as their own gods, taking their destiny into their hands as if they have control over their own future. Some will turn to occult, witchcraft, mediums, psychics, horoscopes, free masonry, or other forms of satanic worship, what we call “new age” era.

These people often feel they have to be on the cutting edge of new technology, or new inventions, new this or that, trying to be the first to receive the best in the literal term of the world, that is “the rat race.” Yes! A rodent race, that is one who hoards and gluttons himself on drunkenness food, pleasures or material wealth. They boast in their pride with their wealth of money, power and stature, those who live in this manner. But woe to you, because you have made yourself a puppet of satan as formerly described.

The Lord concluded his teaching on this gospel of the rich young man with Matthew 19:30 saying, “but many who are first will be the last, and the last will be first…”

Who are the ones looked down upon most in the world? It is the poor, the elderly, infants in the womb, youth, the sick and the lame. These are the least in the worlds esteem and the most destitute to the one who has riches.

My dear friends here is what you are missing, it is these that are least in the world as I have said above the ones who will inherit the eternal life, for they do not have attachments to material things.

I repeat, Jesus said, “if you want to be perfect sell everything, give it to the poor.”

If you have been blessed with wealth it is not meant for you alone! You are chosen by God to help build up His kingdom, and provide for those who are in need. Those who have more, more will be expected of them.

Look around you where you are in the present moment my friends. How many families are around you that are hard working families, who in the world esteem would be called and classified as “middle class or low income” families not as fortunate to have high paying jobs, but work by the sweat of their brow to feed their families.

Is the dignity of these people any less than yours; you who seek to be rich? No! they are human beings, God’s creatures as you are; God’s family as you are. They are brothers and sisters belonging to the same family of God.

Why then is it difficult for you then to let go of your possessions or your wealth to help those in need?

What are you afraid of? Who should you fear the most?

Do you not fear the loss of God and your soul and sell it for a moments pleasure on earth?

Your life is passing before your eyes, and you do not know the day nor the hour when the Lord will have you give an account of your life.

Here is a good prayer question.

Ask yourself as this rich young man did; ‘what am I lacking Lord? How am I like the rich young man? What is keeping me from inheriting your kingdom? What am I clinging to that I am unable to let go?

Why am I feeling so empty inside that I need to fill my heart with things?
What satisfaction do I have in things?
Why do things, money wealth and power control my life?
Or do I lack unity and love with those whom God has blessed in my life? What is my focus; God or money?

Am I clinging to my career and sacrificing my family life to have more things, or wealth or stature in my career or in the world?

What sin am I clinging to?
-Am I angry with God or His Church, or a priest?
-Am I angry all the time with my spouse?
-Am I angry with a family member?
-Am I angry with a co-worker?
Am I willing to forgive and reconcile for love of neighbor?

What bad habits, sinful behavior, or sins against the flesh, or vices to I have that I am clinging to, and not willing to give up. Keep in mind my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit of which belongs to the Lord.

Am I an excessive eater, drinker, addicted to drugs or use any other form of intoxication to abuse my body?
Do I smoke or chew tobacco?
Am I addicted to pornography, masturbation or engaged in sexual pleasures outside of the conjugal union with my spouse?

(If not married, am I engaging in pre-marital sexual activity, homosexuality or any other form of sinful behavior in my flesh?)

Do I place more importance on wealth, money, and power, stature over God and my vocation? (this is a sin against the 1st commandment of God and of grave matter).

Have I willfully aborted my own child?
Have I counseled another to have an abortion, or use a form of birth control?
Have I encouraged another to pre-marital sexual behavior or condoned the sin of adultery?

Am I guarding the dignity and purity of my children in modest dress and behavior?

Please my friends if your conscience is stirring within you, and you find yourself saying yes to any of these questions of examination of conscience, and in haste I encourage you to seek the sacrament of mercy and get to confession promptly, and resolve to amend your life in radical conversion of heart. Do not delay any longer or put off what must be done to save your soul.

I will conclude this section as part one again for the sake of time, space and reflection. But know the Lord is not finished.

“No one can serve two masters. He will either hate one or love the other or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon….” (Mt. 6:24)

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)

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)

Purgatory-Your Task on Earth

Out of the depths I call to you, LORD; Lord hear my cry...for mercy

Purgatory Poor Souls – Your Task on Earth

The poor souls are in perfect union with God, and have full knowledge of God. The voice of the poor souls is the same message, nor can it be contrary to the perfect will of God. They know and understand the reason for their suffering and why they are being purified of sin. Everything is in the full knowledge of truth

Therefore message also is in union with the Mother of God and with the scriptures. The revelations given to Ms. Maria Simma also give insight to the significance of Medjugorje in the world today. This will be given at a later time.

On 7/24/89 Our Lady said, “Dear children, tonight your Mother is happy to see you in such large numbers. Your Mother wants to give you love tonight so you can give and share this love with others when you will come back to your homes. Live love. I want to give you peace, so you can carry it to others. You can not give peace to others if you don’t have this peace within yourselves. I need you, dear children, to cooperate with me, because there are today many plans that I cannot fulfill without your. I need your cooperation. Pray, pray, pray.”

Yes, you are part of her plans in the world today…read below the words of the poor souls enforcing these words, that there is not one soul on this earth that God does not have a plan for to help build his Kingdom. Where are you in this plan? Are you seeking to find its meaning?

“Think about it! God gave you for your entire lifetime a particular task! He expects this task from you and only from you! Only you can achieve this. No one else can replace you! If this task is not truly completed, then it stays undone into eternity. You are responsible for all advice you give to all who come to you for help.

Therefore, pray a lot to the Holy Spirit that you advise them all well and bring them nearer to God! Let love and goodness prevail with all. Ask God blessings for everyone who enters and leaves through your doors. This is your task. Let nothing discourage you. With God’s help you will overcome all difficulties, for saving souls needs sacrifice.

Every soul has a task given to him by God. Namely that he works on his soul and on his abilities as much as he can! That these always multiply and improve in order to honor God more. That he improves his soul and those of others, and that he always helps his neighbor toward eternal bliss.

In every gift that God gives him, there lies a task, a demand and responsibility. Thank God for this your task and see to it that you always support it. You do not know how much longer you have to accomplish it.

May everyone fulfill his task with strength. God’s love touches you with every good thought and wish that travels through your soul, in every joyful decision in your will to do good, in every pure joy which refreshes you, in every quiet push to love which touches your heart, in every suffering that comes over you, in every good word you hear spoken, in every good example that draws you to imitate, in every humiliation which returns to you in every test of patience which reaches you, in every lack of love which you must carry.

Therefore you should never get excited because in everything God’s love touches you! All this you should see as gentle, loving graces that God in His great Love sends you, which you must notice and use, or for which you, at least should be grateful. Everything serves you for the best, if you truly love God!

You should write down and spread these instructions and teachings. Many will glean much good from them and be grateful to God forever. And were you only to multiply for one soul the graces for holiness, then your work will have been worthwhile. Therefore, work as long as you can still work…”

And so it is that we handed this humble word to you from the poor souls of purgatory that all may understand the great mercy of God. It does matter how we live our life on this earth, and we will be judged by these measures.

Psalm 130

I Out of the depths I call to you, LORD;
2 Lord, hear my cry!
May your ears be attentive
to my cry for mercy.
3 If you, LORD, mark our sins,
Lord, who can stand?
4 *But with you is forgiveness
and so you are revered.
5 II I wait with longing for the LORD,
my soul waits for his word.
6 My soul looks for the Lord
more than sentinels for daybreak.
More than sentinels for daybreak,
7 let Israel look for the LORD,
For with the LORD is kindness,
with him is full redemption,
8 And God will redeem Israel
from all their sins.

“All who die in God’s grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation; but after death they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven.” CCC 1030

Prayer which will deliver many souls from Purgatory

Eternal Father I offer you the most precious blood of your Divine Son, Jesus in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my home and within my own family.

Prayer for our deceased Parents

Lord God, you commanded us to honor our parents. Kindly have mercy toward the souls of my father and mother; forgive them their sins and allow me to see them again in the joy of Eternal Light! Through Christ our Lord. AMEN.

The Holy Mass-The Greatest Sacrifice

Adore him, My Son...

The Holy Mass-The Greatest Sacrifice

“Dear children! Today I invite you to fall in love with the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. Adore Him little children, in your parishes, and in this way you will be united with the entire world. Jesus will become your friend and you will not talk of Him like someone whom you barely know. Unity with Him will be a joy for you and you will become witnesses to the love of Jesus that He has for every creature. Little children, when you adore Jesus you are also close to me. Thank you for responding to my call.” (Queen of Peace 9/25/95)

How we discount the value of even one single mass. The Mother of God said, “If we knew who we were receiving in the Holy Mass, we would prepare at least one hour before it…”

Blessed Mother said, “fall in love…Adore Him” Fall in love with our spouse, Jesus Christ. Is this too much to ask of someone who is married? What a romantic invitation from the Mother of God. Our Lady is saying that we will have an intimate union with Him…we will know Him, experience Him in the most intimate way in the depths of our being.

A husband and wife in the sacrament of marriage could not achieve this type of love that is being offered from Our God with out Him, it is a divine love that can only come from the divine author himself. But this love can be shared between the spouses with the author of love Himself at the center. Who can comprehend this treasure from heaven, except the one who has experienced it for themselves?

How many marriages grow cold and spouses become indifferent with each other? Not so with a marriage grounded in the love of God. There is always something new to experience in the relationship.

We forget and often are lukewarm in our hearts foregoing the fact of what price it took to save our souls from damnation. Jesus Christ offered Himself on the Cross to the most extreme and brutal torture in a bloody sacrifice. The Holy Mass is a renewal of Christ’s offering on the Cross. It is the greatest sacrifice, and sadly has lost its sacrificial character.

Through Jesus Christ, the Cross has become a sign of strength of character, of love and loyalty. It is a sign of Christ’s commitment to His bride, the universal Church. The nails in His hands and feet are a sign that He is there to remain on the Cross for His bride. Nothing can take Him off that Cross, even to death.

The Cross is a sign of inner strength and the carrying of the cross are steps on the path to inner strength.

How many make sacrifices and commitments to earthly things, such as their daily routine to get to their exercise class, coffee with friends, sports practices etc. Where are the same eternal values, which are of greater importance for the soul? The time on this earth is temporal and passing.

Poor Souls speak about the Mass
(excerpt from “Get us out of Here”)


The poor souls have spoken that their greatest suffering
is the time wasted on earth not serving and building up the Kingdom of God while on earth. Once the life has ended, there is no turning back the clock of time. What you do on this earth now matters for eternity.

A huge treasure is offered in the Holy Mass. His name is Jesus Christ who is fully present in the Eucharistic species, in the flesh, full body, blood, soul and divinity. Who but God can accomplish this great work for man’s salvation. By His Word it is done! “This is my body.” (Mt. 26:26, Mk 14:22, Lk. 22:19, 1 Cor. 11:24)

Doesn’t a bride and bridegroom say the same to each other in the sacrament of Marriage? This is my body given up for you my husband, my wife. What a great gift and grace God has given to His bride that we can experience the profoundness of His love in mystical way. There is no greater love than this to lay ones life down for a friend and more so for the one He loves.

The poor souls emphasize that “you must take this treasure of the Precious Blood of Jesus and continually bring it to the Father through Holy Mass as a reparation for your sins, as the cost of the conversion and salvation of souls and as a request for rich graces for the needs of the Church and of all men. Yes, if you knew the worth of one single Mass you would offer everything to receive this grace.

At every consecration your past life is lifted to a higher level of grace and then you live these higher graces. Take your suffering and your prayers and all your worries and your work; take everything into the sacrifice of the Holy Mass.

At your death all the Holy Masses that you attended in sincerity during your lives will be your greatest intercessors.”

Wow, imagine what a great grace this is for your soul when the book of life is presented before you in your final judgment. And we say we do not have time to go to holy Mass every day? There is nothing more important on this earth! On this EARTH, nothing more important!

“Even with the strictness of God’s justice and even if your sins are ever so numerous and heavy as a mountain, next to God’s justice stands His infinite mercy in the Sacrifice of the Mass. The many who think they have no time to go to holy Mass during the week should try it and see if they cannot get along with their work as though they had never been to holy Mass-as long as no duty is neglected-as duty comes first for ones state in life!

The Gospel without the Cross belongs to heaven. Suffering without the Gospel belongs to hell and the Gospel with suffering belongs here on earth. With the Cross of suffering, we help the Lord save souls. Were you to know the value of a single mass, you would give everything to save just one soul!

Before all else, honor the Blessed Mother again in your lives. Today she is pushed away by so many priests and even her virginity is often questioned. A priest who turns away the Virgin Mary is no longer Catholic! And for this reason so many have left the priesthood. Through Mary to Jesus, that is the surest way to God! It is a great bequest of Jesus that He gave us at His crucifixion. This applies to every person! And it should bring joy and consolation to everyone in all of life’s situations.

The word ‘Mother’ refreshes every broken courage. It is a word of security. Yes, she is the Mother most worthy of Love! Now think about the kindness she showed in her relationship with God and with men. She was also loving and worthy of love during her daily works. She is always polite. Politeness is a virtue and shows love for neighbor in its loveliest and finest form.

She is also God’s most humble servant. Yes, all leaders of the Church must again become humble to win back the trust of the faithful. Humble recognition of guilt receives forgiveness, grace and mercy.

Love and practice humility. The humble man is before God the more God can make of him. God placed his grace in this loving Mother’s hands. Blessed Mother is the Mother and mediatrix of all graces. What a loving and consoling thought. All graces that flow in us after Christ’s death for salvation went through the hands of Mary!”

Let us go to Our Lady before we receive Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the altar, and ask her to prepare our hearts to receive Jesus in a humble posture, and to live our lives worthily of the call we have received as children of God.

Adore my Son, says Our Lady. Adore Him with your whole heart, with all your mind, with all your soul, with all your strength. If you live this, then the second call is easy, to love and adore our neighbor as ourself.

Majority of people go to Purgatory

Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death

The Majority of People go to Purgatory

The Church is preparing for her great feast of All Saints day. It is a celebration of what we believe; that is life after death, and in the communion of saints with God in Heaven.

Now is the time to begin the novenas for the Poor Souls in Purgatory to remember our loved ones who have died.

Blessed Mother spoke often about the souls in Purgatory describing how we must pray for them and that there are many forgotten souls who have no one to pray for them. Marija one of the visionaries of Medjugorje has the mission to pray for the poor souls of Purgatory.

In the following message, Our Lady gave some insight about the final purification of the soul in Purgatory;

“In Purgatory there are different levels; the lowest is close to hell and the highest gradually draws near to Heaven. It is not on All Souls Day, but at Christmas that the greatest number of souls leave Purgatory. There are in Purgatory souls who pray ardently to God but for whom no relative or friend prays on earth. God makes them benefit from the prayers of other people. It happens that God permits them to manifest themselves in different ways, close to their relatives on earth, in order to remind men of the existence of Purgatory and to solicit their prayers to come close to God who is just, but good. The majority of people go to Purgatory. Many go to hell. A small number go directly to Heaven.” (Queen of Peace 1/10/83)

A mystic known as Maria Simma had visitations with the poor souls throughout most of her life. Below is a quote from the poor souls in one of her countless revelations, about making good use of the time we have here on earth. (excerpt from “Get us Out of Here” by Nicky Eltz)

“Only once in eternity will you recognize what you did with your time during your life with all the years, days and hours, and what you could have done with them. There too you will recognize what chances you missed during life to make everything good; and once there in eternity, it will be too late. What would people not do to start a new life if they knew what eternity was! And here are some more lines to remember:

Long is not eternal, but eternal is long…this is a true yet serious thought. Pick roses while they bloom for tomorrow is not today. Let no hour slip by for this time is fleeting. We build many firm houses and are in them only as guests. But for where we will be eternally, we build very little.

God gives you time so that you can progress with your souls. Man wanders through life but once and not a second time as it is taught by many today. This is wrong! God gives us only one time to live here on earth! It is satan’s trickery to think that you’ve been on earth before or that one comes to earth again in another body. These are falsehoods!

What great things could one make out of time? What treasures could one win or lose? Costly and short is time, it does not come again. Fulfillment of God’s will must be the password your entire lives!

Why does man dive into time bound things? Because he thinks so little about eternity. Seek in everything to fulfill God’s will. Do not get disturbed if you make mistakes over and over. What is important is always to get up again and to start anew. To error is human, getting up again is blessed and to stay in sin is satan! Recognize in humility that you are sinful, but no one need despair if he falls over and over because Christ died on the Cross for us so that we can get up repeatedly.

Most of our falls are do to weaknesses, superficialities, carelessness, but seldom malice. So do not get disturbed about your own faults and much less about those of others. Do not judge others! Those who do so again and again are those who should work on themselves most. A good word can heal, a nasty word can kill so never judge others.

Let no day go by without a good word or good deed. One should carry the other’s burden. Only in this way is the law of Christ fulfilled. If only everyone was eager never to judge another; to sow peace where conflict exists – and only to pass on the good about another, but never a mistake. Take care only to help the other in this manner, but never to injury him; then there would never again be a war. Was this the case not half as many people would be in Purgatory and Hell would be empty. Do good for others as long as you have time for it. A time will come when you can do no more and will only reap what you have sown.

Do not judge others but only yourself. That is the beginning of peace on earth. A good Christian has a firm decision in him only to fulfill God in humility and simplicity. He gets used to tolerating the mistakes of others and his own. You must work yourself forward from mediocrity to holiness.

Many wish to be good Christians, but to strain for holiness that seems too much for them! And still God’s Church needs truly holy and not merely somewhat holy men! The title of ruin is stranger that the mediocre, so how should it be conquered by mediocrity?

It is so important to be loyal in small matters because it strengthens humility and leads to great things…He who is loyal in small matters is also loyal in great matters. He who is disloyal in small matters is also disloyal in the great.”

What great words of wisdom that we can learn from the souls who suffer in eternity, with understanding of what they suffer for. It is a good way to examine our own conscience. Please in your daily prayer, pray for the poor souls, especially those who have been forgotten.

“And lying at his door was a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who would gladly have eaten his fill of the scraps that fell from the rich man’s table. Dogs even used to come and lick his sores. When the poor man died, he was carried away by angels to the bosom of Abraham. The rich man also died and was buried, and from the netherworld, where he was in torment, he raised his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. And he cried out, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me. Send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am suffering torment in these flames.’ Abraham replied, ‘My child, remember that you received what was good during your lifetime while Lazarus likewise received what was bad; but now he is comforted here, whereas you are tormented. Moreover, between us and you a great chasm is established to prevent anyone from crossing who might wish to go from our side to yours or from your side to ours.’ He said, ‘Then I beg you, father, send him to my father’s house, for I have five brothers, so that he may warn them, lest they too come to this place of torment.’ But Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the prophets. Let them listen to them.’ He said, ‘Oh no, father Abraham, but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’ Then Abraham said, ‘If they will not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone should rise from the dead.'” (Luke 16:20-31)
