October 2, 2011 Message to Mirjana

God the Father is not far from you...

Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s October 2, 2011 Message
Given to Mirjana on the Day for Non-Believers

“Dear children; Also today my motherly heart calls you to prayer, to your personal relationship with God the Father, to the joy of prayer in Him. God the Father is not far away from you and He is not unknown to you. He revealed Himself to you through my Son and gave you Life that is my Son. Therefore, my children, do not give in to temptations that want to separate you from God the Father. Pray! Do not attempt to have families and societies without Him. Pray! Pray that your hearts may be flooded by the goodness which comes only from my Son, Who is sincere goodness. Only hearts filled with goodness can comprehend and accept God the Father. I will continue to lead you. In a special way I implore you not to judge your shepherds. My children, are you forgetting that God the Father called them? Pray! Thank you.”

Mirjana said: “I have never said anything before, but are you aware, brothers, that the Mother of God was with us? Each of us should ask himself: ‘Are you worthy of this?’ I am saying this because it is difficult for me to see Her (Our Lady) in pain, because each of us is seeking a miracle, but does not want to work a miracle in himself.”

I Stand Before Many Hearts, They Do Not Open…

I stand before Many Hearts they do not open...

Dear friends and children of Our Lady, I want to share with you a moment of time that I was able to have with Blessed Mother in my private prayer today.

I asked Blessed Mother to guide me in prayer this morning before the most Blessed Sacrament to adore her Son, and that she would speak to my heart through her message of Medjugorje, and to teach me how to pray with her. The following message she gave I believe was in answer to my request.

This is a plea for prayer from the Mother of God. This is what she said:

” If you knew how much I love you, your heart would cry. If there is someone there who asks you for something, give it to him.

I also stand in front of many hearts and they do not open up. Pray that the world may welcome my love! Dear children, I would like for the whole world to be my child, but it does not want it. I wish to give everything for the world. For that, pray!” (March 1982)

I have been to Medjugorje on several occasions to just pray with Our Lady. I do not go there to look for signs and wonders, but to just pray with her and offer sacrifice in way of penance. On these occasions she has called me to “pray for the world” as she is in this message again.

If we listen to her message, and just for a moment hear this message with her tender love, and let it rest in our heart, we can hear her plea for our help. She needs our prayers.

She is still waiting for open hearts. She said she is standing in front of many people, and they still are not open to her Motherly love.

Our Lady is showing me that this is not just in the world, but especially in the Church which often is where the greatest persecutions come.

Our Lady is asking that we pray for the world to welcome her and her love. She wants to give everything to the world.

“Everything” is a very broad word coming from heaven. When I hear this word spoken from the Blessed Mother she takes me back to another message about praying for the full outpouring of the Holy Spirit. When we have the Holy Spirit, we have EVERYTHING.

Our Lady wants to bring to the world the Holy Spirit in its fullness. If we understand who she is, then we understand fully that she is the vessel and spouse of the Holy Spirit. Where she is, there He is with her. And whenever the Holy Spirit comes with Our Lady, Jesus is born. They are inseparable.

“THE WORLD” Our Lady said on many occasions is in darkness, and is steeped into great sin. She said that “the World” cannot pull it self out of the abyss of sin without the help of God. We are speaking of a global and universal plea.

This is not about praying for our own intentions, this is a global and universal call for prayer.

The world needs a Mother to love it. She wants the whole world to be her child she said. The whole world! This excludes NO ONE. This is universal desire of the Queen of Heaven – her desire is to be loved by the world, and that she can give her love to the world.

The love of the Mother of God comes from the depth of the Heart of God. Her love is a perfect and profound love, and carries the tender love of Jesus. If you have been blessed to experience this Motherly love then you know what I am speaking of.

Blessed Mother, the Queen of Heaven wants her child (THE WORLD) to welcome her embrace. She began this message by saying…

“If you knew how much I love you, your heart would cry…”

IF YOU KNEW! Can anyone imagine their heart crying?

To know is to experience. If you experienced her love, your heart would cry. Can you imagine this? I can and I have experienced it. To be in her presence, to be in her embrace nothing else exists on this earth. There is only you and your Mother, and the love that she radiates just pours out of her existence and floods the soul.

When I experienced the Love of God through Blessed Mothers embrace, I fell to the floor on my knees and my heart was filled with tears of joy that just kept pouring forth with such awe of her beauty and embrace, that to this day I will never forget it, and it is sealed in my soul.

Our Lady once said, “my heart burns for love of you.” Imagine her flaming Immaculate Heart that is on fire for you. This same heart is flaming and burning for the World to welcome her love, which she is holding on to so much love that her heart is bursting so she can pour it out.

But the world does not want it, and human hearts are closed to it.

If the world only knew Who they were rejecting….

Our Lady was sent by God as our last hope of salvation. Our Lady said, that she has come to call the world for the LAST TIME TO CONVERSION.

I hear the cry of Jesus crucified as I think of this, crying out to the Father from the cross saying:

“Father forgive them, they know not what they are doing…”

If we only knew the love of the Mother of God; where would the world be today if it embraced her Motherly love?

We only need to turn on the news to see what a difference it would be to embrace her Motherly love.

How few are listening to her. She is standing right in front of you and me with hands open, filled with many graces that she wants to give, and we are not even aware of her presences among us. She wants to give them freely to you without expectations, no attachments; she just wants you to experience perfect love and welcome her embrace.

Can our human hearts bear this love?

Why are we running from her?

Why do we hide or ignore her?

Why is the world rejecting the most precious in the eyes of God?

In reality it is the desire of every human being to be loved. We look for love in many places and never find it in things, or in other human beings. Human beings let us down because of sin and brokenness.

So why can we not embrace perfect love; unconditional love? A great mystery and a very sad state we are.

The Mother is waiting for you. Open your heart. Pour out everything that is in it to her. Give her all your problems and difficulties, as a child would do as he enters the home to talk about his day. She is listening.

Please my friends, pray with me as the Mother of God requested, “pray for the world to welcome her love, and that hearts will open to her love, so that she can introduce Jesus her Son to them; and He will be better known and loved…”

“Now therefore put away the strange gods that are among you and turn your hearts to the LORD the God of Israel. The people promised Joshua, ‘we will serve the LORD our God and obey his voice.'” (Joshua 24)

All Youth Called to Evangelize and Prayer

The August 5, 2011 apparition of Our Lady took place during Ivan’s Prayer Group on Apparition Mountain in Medjugorje. It was a clear night, ending the feast day of Our Lady’s birthday. (Note: Our Lady revealed to the visionaries in Medjugorje that August 5th is her real birthday, even thought the Church celebrates her nativity on September 8th. When the events come to its conclusion, this will be made known).

Ivan began the Rosary a little after 10:00 PM, praying the Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries.

Thousand were present on the mountain with Our Lady. It was a clear evening, with thousands of stars visible in the night sky. Our Lady came around 10:52 P.M., and the apparition lasted 12 minutes. During Our Lady’s apparition it was noticed that not a single camera flash was seen, and the thousands were in a deep and peaceful silence as Our Lady came.

Ivan began to describe the apparition tonight, several large shooting stars went across the sky. Following is Ivan’s description of Our Lady’s apparition in Medjugorje of August 5, 2011:

Today, as every day, after every meeting with Our Lady, I desire to describe to you what is the most important from this meeting with Our Lady. Also tonight, Our Lady came to us, really very, very, very joyful and happy. She came with three angels. At the beginning, She greeted us all with Her Motherly greeting, “Praised be Jesus, my dear children.” Then Our Lady said:

“Dear children, also today, in this my great joy, when I see you in such a large number, I desire to call you, and to call all the youth, to participate in the evangelization today of the world; to participate in the evangelization of families. Dear children, pray, pray, pray, and the Mother prays together with you and intercedes before Her Son. Pray, dear children. Thank you, dear children, also today, for having responded to my call.”

Our Lady then for a longer while, with Her arms extended, prayed over all of you here. She then blessed us all with Her Motherly blessing and blessed everything you brought for blessing. Then Our Lady extended Her arms and for a long time especially prayed over all of you here and particularly over all of you youth present here. She prayed for your families. I then recommended all of you, your needs, your intentions, your families and especially all of you who are sick. Our Lady then continued to pray over all of you the youth. She left in that prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross with a greeting, “Go in peace, my dear children.”

We must make it known that the youth are the future of the Church, and they play an important role for the future of the Church. Our Lady is calling them now to become active and evangelizing in the world, and in their families. It is important for the young people to be a visible sign of their Christian faith, and never be ashamed of it, especially among their peers and in their families.

Gather into God’s Family Part II

Be born anew in prayer through the Holy Spirit

As we continue with the reflection of our Lady’s message given through Mirjana on 8/2/11 and where we left off in part I of the reflection it is safe to say, and I am sure many will agree, that there are many divisions and agendas in the House of God and for this case we are going to say in God’s Family.

Many in the family of God today are of a thinking that they are the one who is right, self righteous, boast in this idealism that everyone is a greater sinner than ourself.

Just yesterday as one example I posted the ABC news source recently aired about Medjugorje and the apparitions of Our Lady. One single woman claiming her Catholic identity outright attacked the posting claiming everyone involved or believing in Medjugorje is a fornicator and satan worshipper.

Where is the Christian attitude here? I hear only the accusers voice, which to me personally if the enemy is speaking this loud, there must have been great fruit that came for it to retaliate in such a way. Therefore praise God.

But case in point…one example of division. Can we judge faith? If one believe and another does not, are we to judge what someone believes? In this same ABC report, Vicka was asked “what do you say to those who do not believe?” Her response was, “I love all believers and non-believers…”

We have to love people where they are at in their state in life and accept them in this way.

We forget the keys of the Kingdom were given by Jesus Christ to Peter to Whom the apostolic mission would continue from generation to generation on earth.

Here is where the authority lies – Peter the Rock! Jesus the Son of God gave authority to no one else on earth.

The spirit of the world master minded by satan seeks only to destroy the world, the Church, her members, and especially the shepherds and apostles chosen by God. It hates, and only hates, and wants to kill and use any measure to destroy what is of God.

The Lord however in His will, wants to keep His mystical body; His family with a Mother and a Father united with the same mind and heart to keep the family together, praying together and staying together in unity with one voice of prayer and adoration. And where there is unity, there is power!

The Father as Creator has ordained it so for this unity to come and pass through only Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son. It is through the way of Jesus we must “Passover” to be born anew as Our Lady speaks of often.

The way of passover is through the way of Jesus Christ who has been given as gift to the world. In Jesus Christ, we reject sin, the world, the flesh and the devil by order of our baptism into new life with Him, and pick up our daily crosses, whatever that cross may be for us. We carry it with love, embrace it, love it (that is he or she); and press into it.

Give thought to the family of God for a moment, which is a perfect family.

There is a good Mother (Blessed Virgin Mary) and a good Father.

There is the first born; Jesus Christ and those adopted through Him by order of baptism. Then there are those who come from a different sheepfold, that is those of other faiths and denominations.

But all are created by the same Creator, One Creator and one and the same God who all dwell under the universal soverignty and protection of the Creator, God.

Universal members with one universal Father and Mother. What is the one desire then of a Father and Mother for their children?

That is that the children love each other and remain united in the same family obedient to Father and Mother for their well being.

What happens when families are divided, torn apart, broken down or divorced, saying maybe missing a Father and a Mother?

Very simple…there is discord, divisions, hatred, anger war and so on among the members of the family and its children, each one taking the side of another. And look at the sin that comes with it, and the impact it has on the children and generations to come.

Together in unity the family is strong and can bear whatever may come its way. But if divided all seems lost and many fall into despair.

Does a loving Father and Mother want this to happen in their families? Absolutely not!

The Mother and Father must first pull together themselves for the sake of the family and the children and unite as one body to strengthen the unit.

Isn’t it obvious then why the Father in Heaven has sent the Mother to help us this way, and to teach us how to live as God’s people? She is gathering us back into God’s family, and with great hopes we can do it, if we listen to her and put to life the messages she is giving to the world in our daily life. She does not want to see her children get the divine spanking, as most Mothers do not want for their children, but will heed to the authority of the Father if necessary.

Our Lady begins her message with “I call you to be born anew in prayer and through the Holy Spirit, to become NEW PEOPLE WITH MY SON…”

If we are secure in Jesus knowing we cannot do anything without Him, we are able to press into all sufferings and trials knowing He is our savior and our secure way.

Let us all pray for the gift of unity to come among the people of God, to build a Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. Ave Maria!

“I am the vine, you are the branches, apart from me you can do nothing…”

Gather into God’s Family – Part I

Gather into God's Family my children

“Dear children, Today I call you to be born anew in prayer and through the Holy Spirit, to become a new people with my Son; a people who knows that if they have lost God, they have lost themselves; a people who knows that, with God, despite all sufferings and trials, they are secure and saved.

I call you to gather into God’s family and to be strengthened with the Father’s strength.

As individuals, my children, you cannot stop the evil that wants to begin to rule in this world and to destroy it. But, according to God’s will, all together, with my Son, you can change everything and heal the world.

I call you to pray with all your heart for your shepherds [priests], because my Son chose them. Thank you.” (Queen of Peace message of 8/2/11)

I was able to have the opportunity to reflect on the message of 8/2/11 today at a deeper level. I asked Blessed Mother in my prayer to take me into a deeper understanding of the message not only for myself, but to share with all of you.

In the message her voice spoke very loud through the words of;

“… I call you to gather into God’s family and to be strengthened with the Father’s strength.”

It seems this is the center and focus of the whole message and its content. As I reflected deeper into these words, two images came to my heart as follows:

(1) “The image of a huge ship or a sea vessel came to my heart filled with many people and all were clothed in a great light. This vessel was being tossed about in the waves of a great storm and darkness covered the stormy seas. The ship was being steered by a mighty force of wind and treads through the water with ease through the song and prayer of those who travel in its cargo…”

(2) Then the image shifted to another, which was a large and great army marching together in unity, side by side with rosaries in hand. We are all clothed in a golden armor and the mighty power of God, marching forward with great power and strength. Together nothing can stop or penetrate this battalion of apostles for Jesus that Our Lady is leading. The Holy Trinity is above this great army in the heavens guiding the way, while all are marching forward and in truth. The Battle Hymn of Republic than began to sing in my heart.

There are two common themes in these images, that there is great power and strength in numbers, and the importance of unity; having prayer of one mind and heart for the fulfillment of the plans of God.

The Mother of God makes it clear. This battle we are in will not be won single handedly, but only united as one body, many members as the mystical body of Christ, and with and through Jesus Christ, the head of the whole Church.

Jesus has the victory and the triumph and will conquer with great force through His Church.

Each apostle of this army is positioned, and each member of the body have their unique call which they are armed with to fight this war waged against the Church and her members. But most importantly all her members must be united in faith and in prayer.

The Lord is the one in command. We are in great error if we think otherwise.

The Holy Spirit was leading me into an interesting insight, which I find myself to be a great problem and struggle in the Church today. And this needs to be said.

Many fall into the trap or the deception of possessing for themselves their so-called apostolate as their own, failing to see that the One who has called them to the mission gave the gift in the first place for the Church.

We become very territorial about “my mission.” Isn’t that what most say. “The Lord has called ME!” The big word “I” becomes the focus and the focus is lost on the one who qualified the call in us.

Remember dear apostles what has been freely given and freely received, must also be freely let go so the Holy Spirit is free to move as He pleases. Many are quenching this Holy Spirit, because of their sin of avarice and clinging to what does not belong to them in the first place.

Our Lady once said, “we do not possess and own anything of this world, but only our own sin, which remains with us.

If you are a Christian, and living the way of Jesus, there is nothing that we own as members of His mystical body. We are called to be working members of the body in order that Jesus Christ the Godhead may be made manifest in this world that does not know Him.

This world and its possessions are transitory. God gives and He takes away. It is the same with the gift of an apostolate that He forms in us. It is not ours to profit from. How many are there operating outside of the confines of the Church and making great profit I may add. Doing good works, yes! But who are they working for? And what Kingdom are they building?

This mindset needs to go. It needs to be rooted out of God’s House, that is…in God’s family home.

Think about heaven…does anyone possess anything in heaven? No. Is anyone more special in heaven than another;except for Jesus and Mary? No. Some have been elevated by the Church for extraordinary lives lived on earth, but all are equally loved in the eyes of God.

Thus it should be so, here on earth in God’s house, for God’s family. There is no “this is my mission, or yours…” or I this or that is my charism and so on.

There is no profit in this way of thinking my friends, for what the Lord gives as gift, He expects a great return in its place, and a chance for us to win merit for our own salvation, and I emphasize the words “chance to win merit“.

This mission you have been given may be the help you need to win salvation for your own soul, and to help you grow more in virtue. The gift however, is meant to serve His living body in the universal Church for the salvation of souls.

We cannot market the Holy Spirit for profit and possess that which is not ours in the first place. I witness this myself by many in the church. And these are now failing the test.

Use the gift of God you have received to help build up, strengthen and renew the universal church, which is the mystical vessel to which salvation comes to the world. We each possess a piece of building material in the gift received, to build up the majestic Ark of salvation for mankind, to be made ready for all God’s family to enter.

Who robs from the construction site to build His own ship or his kingdom? I think we know who is behind this deception. Surely this ship will sink in the final day; for it sails apart into uncharted waters and will be un-seaworthy.

If we are gathered together as one, all working for the same glory of God and not for our own glory, we are adorned with the strength of the Father Himself. There is much to reflect on already here.

I will conclude here as part I of this reflection, and will continue to pick it up in part II. As usual this message from heaven has a great mystery hidden within the simple words spoken by the dear Mother of God.

“According to the grace of God given to me, like a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another is building upon it. But each one must be careful how he builds upon it, for no one can lay a foundation other than the one that is there, namely Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation…the work of each will come to light, for the Day will disclose it. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each ones work…” (1 Cor. 3:10-13)

In other words when the test comes, will the work stand? If it is built for the sake of the name of Jesus Christ, it will stand. If it is built for man’s glory, no glory will come to man.

Monthly Message to Mirjana 8/2/11

Become a new people with my Soon

Dear children,

Today I call you to be born anew in prayer and through the Holy Spirit, to become a new people with my Son; a people who knows that if they have lost God, they have lost themselves; a people who knows that, with God, despite all sufferings and trials, they are secure and saved.

I call you to gather into God’s family and to be strengthened with the Father’s strength.

As individuals, my children, you cannot stop the evil that wants to begin to rule in this world and to destroy it. But, according to God’s will, all together, with my Son, you can change everything and heal the world.

I call you to pray with all your heart for your shepherds [priests], because my Son chose them. Thank you

Medjugorje 7/25/11 Monthly Message

Let this be a time of Rest...

“Dear Children! May this time be fore you a time of prayer and silence. Rest your body and spirit, may they be in God’s love. Permit me, little children, to lead you, open your hearts to the Holy Spirit so that all the good that is in you may blossom and bear fruit one hundred fold. Begin and end the day with prayer with the heart. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

You will Lament for the Message

My eyes will always be upon you...

“Dear children, during this time multiply your prayers and go deeper into the messages that I have given. Tonight when you go home, pray the Joyful Mysteries in front of the crucifix.”

Our Lady gave this message on 2/27/89, but has recently led me to it for my private prayer. Through her message I felt in my heart she is calling me to deeper prayer, and to spend more time in prayer during this time.

Of course for our present situation, we are in a family transition and a move, and we are really looking to heaven to help us and to guide us.

In my private prayer my thoughts were not exactly on our personal situation. You see, I have been putting this off in sharing, as she had given this message to me on 7/9/11 which was several days ago from now. What she said after this made my heart sink.

Again, as with all private revelation, you must take this for your own discernment, and retain what is good. What was meant for me, may not be for you dear reader.

However Our Lady is keeping this at the fore front of my heart, which has always meant for me is that she wants this to be brought to light. So I am sharing her words she gave to my heart.

Multiply your prayers she said…this is where I begin…

The Our Lady said to me:

“A great event is about to occur on this earth. My little one I want you and your family to remain in prayer during this time.”

Then she referred me to another message from her Medjugorje messages given on 10/25/05 —

“Believe pray and love, and God will be near you. He will give you the gift of all the graces you seek from Him. I am a gift to you, because from day to day, God permits me to be with you and to love each of you with immeasurable love. Therefore little children, in prayer and in humility open your hearts and be witnesses of my presence. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

I saw myself as a little girl holding the hand of Blessed mother, looking up to her and asking her questions as a child would in innocence. I told her I looked to her to teach me, because I am a little child and I do not know the way to heaven. The simple words of “Believe, pray and love” kept coming and repeating in my heart along with “multiply your prayers…

Then my thoughts started to go toward my first born who is going off to college, and I said, “I know she feels she is losing me! I don’t want her to feel this way, especially with the distance that will be between us. I want her to know I am always near to her and that she does not need to be afraid…” and then I saw in the same way this is me with Blessed Mother.

Blessed Mother often teaches me through my own Motherhood and my imperfect relationship with my children. But in this case we are moving to another state while my child is beginning a new life on to college, much further from home now.

These are the words though that made my heart sink as I began to understand that Blessed Mother will be leaving soon…tears pour from my eyes at the thought of this, because I have literally grown up with her at my side, and I cannot bear to think that she will not be appearing in the world any more, and knowing she said in Medjugorje, “when I am no longer appearing you will lament for the message…”

She clearly is stepping back now, for the Father to step in. I don’t know the day, I don’t know the hour, but I do know it is soon, and sooner than we think. And I look around me and I see, countless will be caught by surprise and thrown into despair.

Her private message to me said this…

“My little one, I will be departing soon, but as I have promised, the eyes of my heart will always be upon you. I have taught you well my little one, you only need now to put to life what I have taught you. The message I give will always be your guide, in union with the Holy Bible. As I have taught you, it is through the message you will find me near to you. My little one, the hearts of men have grown cold. I must now decrease, and allow the Father to come to correct His children. Remain vigilant in prayer and you will be united with me in spirit. Remember I am your Mother and that I love you.”

I felt the Mother’s work on this earth is coming to its completion. 30 years she has been with us. It was in the 30th year that St. John the Baptist was beheaded, and it appears the herald for our time; the St. John the Baptist of our time is also being beheaded; many of you know who I am speaking about. It is the time now before the public mission of Jesus with his apostles began.

The apostles of this time are about to do mighty deeds in the name of Jesus.

“The Harvest is ready, but the laborers are few…”

The apostles of the Lord are being put into position through out the globe for what is about to take place in this great event the Mother speaks of.

Then the Mother gave the scripture from the Wedding of Cana, where she said to her Son, “They have no more wine…” There is no more wine to fill the jars. Our hearts, our souls are empty, and then the Lord said to His Mother, “what do you want me to do about it?” Her response is to her apostles; that is, “Do whatever He tells you…”

Dear apostles of these latter times – you know who you are, it is time now to get yourselves in the posture of silence and listening for His command, to fill those jars to the brim so the new wine can be poured out into the world.

The hours is coming upon us where the Son of Man will be made known, in His greatest act of mercy for the world.

Multiply your prayers my friends that you may be ready in the coming days, within the next couple of years for what the Lord has formed you for. Remember, 33 years is the perfect year-the year of the Lord when He triumphed and crushed the head of satan.

The Lord has allowed satan to try the Church for a reason, knowing what He had in mind and what He was going to do for man. He is about to be manifest in His fullness. Woe to those who do not recognize the time of this visitation, that is the visitation of the Blessed Mother who was sent by her Son to call the world to conversion FOR THE LAST TIME.

After I received this light, a strange peace and calm came over me, for I know in my heart it is all business now.

Jesus please keep the eyes of my heart upon you!

Those who have ears ought to hear…

Prodigal Children, Come Home – Part 4 of 4

Father forgive them, they know not what they are doing...

“Dear children, today I call you to a difficult and painful step for your unity with my Son. I call you to complete admission and confession of sins, to purification. An impure heart cannot be in my Son and with my Son. An impure heart cannot give the fruit of love and unity. An impure heart cannot do correct and just things; it is not an example of the beauty of God’s love to those who surround it and to those who have not come to know that love. You, my children, are gathering around me full of enthusiasm, desire and expectations, and I implore the Good Father to, through the Holy Spirit, put my Son – faith, into your purified hearts. My children, obey me, set out with me.”

Afterwards Mirjana said that as Our Lady left she saw a scene that showed darkness on the left and a cross in golden light on the right. Mirjana said she believed that this was Our Lady’s way of showing the difference between a purified and unpurified heart.

As we conclude the reflection of the most recent message from the Mother of God given on 7/2/2011, my hope is that an understanding is coming to light of where we are at as a people of God, or better yet, the prodigal family of God.

The Father is waiting for His children to come back home to His embrace, that is every one of us who have squandered the inheritance and His blessings, through the frivolous spending of excessive entertainment and material wants. He is waiting with open arms and has the fattened calf ready for the great feast.

However recall in this parable, it is the prodigal son who admits what He has done, when he has nothing left, and has been stripped of everything including his dignity before returning to His Father’s embrace. And only then does he kneel before the Father and confesses his sin of disobedience and licentious life he spent wandering as the wayward child.

(If necessary, God the Father will permit you to be stripped to nothing if you cannot return on your knees by your own will, for He is determined to have your salvation and knows what is best for you.)

The Father however upon hearing the remorse of His son, forgets it all, and embraces His son with great delight and welcomes him back home with overwhelming joy and celebration.

Come on dear children of the Family of God. It’s time to come home. Admit your sin, and confess it to the one who forgives, receive His absolution and be made pure. This is what the Mother wants for you. She wants you back home with her in the one loving family.

I saw this quote recently. Consider these words and live by them…

“JESUS CHRIST IS NOT A RELIGION, HE IS OUR SAVIOR. THERE IS NO SALVATION GIVEN UNDER ANY OTHER NAME, BUT THROUGH JESUS CHRIST MAY EVER KNEE BEND.”

“All Christians in any state or walk of life are called to the fullness of Christian life and to the perfection of charity. All are called to holiness. Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (CCC 2013)

The Path to a Pure Heart in God’s Family part 3 of 4

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you...

We continue the reflection of the recent message of Our Lady given on 7/2/2011, I want to remind the reader this one thing that the Queen of Peace said at the beginning of the year 2011.

“Dear Children, you are God’s Family…”

Reflect on these words as a reminder of who we are. We are God’s people. We are God’s children. Children learn from their parents. Children are to model their parents and parental role as they become adult children.

We are God’s people, and belonged to God first.

In the previous reflection part 2, I said I once asked God Who am I? Over the course of 20 years in my conversion experience and growing in relationship in the family of God, I have come to know who I am and why I was sent to this earth, and what my purpose is. I now have an absolute identity in the eyes of God.

Having an identity and knowing why the Lord formed you in the womb and put His Spirit in you, makes the purpose of life all the more worth living. I have no other desire but to get to heaven to be once more with my heavenly family. That is where I want to be. But I know the road is narrow, and I have to pass through this deserted exiled world and persevere to the end until I get there.

But I have a road map. This road map consists of the Sacred Scriptures, and the messages of the Mother of God. It is the quickest way out of the desert.

I have passed through the fiery furnace of purification countless times. I know I am not done yet. But I do know I am being led on the right path with my dear Mother holding my hand walking with me, teaching me, guiding me and protecting me along the way.

When I need to rest and the journey gets to hard, I rest with her, and just let she and Jesus hold me until I am able to go on.

So now, the path to a pure heart. It is simply put, and it is the most repeated word in the Holy Bible, “live the commandments, do not forsake the Commandments, live the Beatitudes, and grow in virtue.”

Simple right? Not so!

We are a weak and fallen in nature people. Our natural inclination in the flesh is to sin. Sin is the enemy of the flesh. The flesh and the spirit are opposed to each other says St. Paul, Romans chapter 8

God knows the weakness of man. Which is why God has given us a road map in the way to follow Him on our way back to our true home. If you want to know how to get to heaven, it is all mapped out for us. If we are uncertain of the direction to walk, the universal Church is steering the ship and the course for us. The answer is with the authority Jesus left for us on this earth. The Holy Catholic Apostolic Church.

God calls His people to live His commandments. This was the call of Moses who was to lead a nation out of sin and bondage and was handed the Commandments from God; or more simply put, the household rules to live in God’s family, as God’s children. These Commandments and precepts are the absolute authority over the human being. Remember, Jesus said He did not come to abolish the Law of God, but to fulfill it. Therefore we as God’s people, God’s family are not here to abolish the Law of God as our government wants to do, but to live it, and fulfill it as our savior did.

For this purpose, and for the purpose of Our Lady’s message of 7/2/2011, the Mother is calling us to set out with her, that is to walk with her and her way to the heart of her Son. But we need to begin by confessing the offenses that separated us from Him. We have to admit that we have broken the house rules. She wants us to see it first and admit it, confess it, and make it right as a good Mother would want in her home to keep peace.

Really, does this sound reasonable to ask of her children? She knows what’s going to upset the Father. She knows the Father’s justice, and wants to spare her children from the justice of God which my friends WE REALLY DESERVE.

In the Ten Commandments the Lord demands parents to raise their children in the Lord, and DRILL HIS COMMANDMENTS INTO THEIR MIIND from generation to generation. Parents are to live by good example since the family and the parents of the family are the first teachers to their children.

The family is the original cell of society. If there is a breakdown in society, it is because there is a breakdown in the family. The family is the first school of love in the proper order of God’s family handed down from us from the beginning of time.

This my friends however as the Lord says to His people is a ‘wicked and perverse generation.’ And that we are and we will go down in history as just this! We are the wayward children of Israel in the bible. And just as historically taught of this people, we the people of God have been handed over to the enemy to have his way over us.

Remember, the Lord has allowed satan to try the Church for a period of time. Our Lady said this, and it is documented by former popes. That time is now. The Lord has permitted this to test the fidelity of His people. We have become as a people of God, as one human race, an adulterous bride who is aborting the seed of the Word gifted to us from the bridegroom Jesus Christ.

I am convinced that until we are able to give birth to the Word of God in the world, will not abortion stop, because we are spiritually aborting the seed of Jesus planted in our hearts, which has manifested into these physical abortions.

The Queen of Peace concludes this message given on 7/2/2011 with these words…

“…You my children are gathering around me full of enthusiasm, desire and expectations, and I implore the Good Father to, through the Holy Spirit, put my Son, faith into your purified hearts. My children, obey me, and set out with me…”

This is what the Mother is asking the Father to do? She is asking the Father by the power of the Holy Spirit, put Jesus and faith into hearts that are open to receive Him after they have been purified in confession. Where there is the Mother, and the Holy Spirit, Jesus is going to be born.

But look at what Blessed Mother said to her children, “you my children are gathering around me full of enthusiasm, desire and expectation…”

What frame of mind are we going to meet her? Enthusiasm is good, desire is good, but what happens when we expect something and it is not met? We get disappointed, and let down and then grow angry.

What expectations do we have when we go to meet her? What grand imaginations we have in our expectations. Should we go with expectation to meet the Mother of God? Absolutely not prideful man! We should expect nothing! She is a gift!

Why did she say this to her own children?

Go back to her opening words…”I call you to a difficult and painful step for your unity with my Son…”

Are we expecting the cross when we come to her or go to Medjugorje? No! I am sure most are not.

Most are expecting to see the wonders and awes of Medjugorje. But this is not what Medjugorje is about. Medjugorje is about the call to conversion, living the way of the Cross as following Jesus and fulfilling the Fatima apparitions to holiness in the vocation of marriage, holy orders and religious life. She is calling us to an extraordinary way of life unknown to this world today of entertainment and comfort. We are called to perfect love, to sacrifice our lives for the salvation of souls, to lay our lives down for ones friend…

If you are living the call and the message of Medjugorje, you know to the depth of your being how difficult it is to put this to life in this world, how painful it is to see the Mother of God rejected by her own Church, her own children in the Church, her own priest sons, by her own family.

You know how painful it is to see Jesus rejected by the world, to see God rejected and removed from the mouths and the gov’t places. You are being persecuted as He was, you are suffering and carrying heavy and laden burdens…as intercessors for a broken and unfaithful world.

The world needs its Mother to love it, to heal it and to comfort it. The world needs its Father, its Creator to usher us back into a community of peace once more. The world needs its savior to come and claim the Victory once and for all. The world needs the Holy Spirit to come in Truth and convict it in truth and remind us of all that Jesus taught us. The world cannot live without God.

Below is a prayer of reparation to God for the United States. Please keep this prayer at the forefront for the sake of the Family of God

Prayer for the United States

O Merciful GOd, we cry to Thee for pardon and for mercy. We are “an unbelieving and perverse generation”. We are disobedient, disloyal and ungrateful to Thee. We have excluded Thee from our homes, our schools, our business places. We are no longer worthy to be called Thy children. But Merciful God, spare my country!

Forgive us! Save us from the scourge which we have deserved, especially the killing of the innocent unborn babies. Teach us Thy law and move our wills to serve Thee, henceforth. Merciful God, please spare America!

God Almighty, Lord of all nations, bless us all with lasting peace; give us strength in tribulations; may Thy blessings never cease. We shall always sing Thy praise: Holy, Holy, Holy God our Lord. Amen.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, they shall be called children of God…” (Matt. 5)
