Fatima? Medjugorje? Connected?

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

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

FATIMA’S CONNECTION TO MEDJUGORJE?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Realistically however, we live in an imperfect world.

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

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

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

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

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

Do not Reject Me…

With motherly perseverence and love I call you...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Destroy the Darkness of death in you…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ave Maria.

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

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.

Stay Awake, Be Ready…

Behold I stand at the door and knock...

“Dear children! Wake up from the sleep of unbelief and sin, because this is a time of grace which God gives you. Use this time and seek the grace of healing of your heart from God, so that you may see God and man with the heart. Pray in a special way for those who have not come to know God’s love, and witness with your life so that they also can come to know God and His immeasurable love. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (2/25/2000)

“Therefore, stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come. Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour of night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into. So too, you also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.” (Matthew 24:42-44)

Our Lady gave this message to the world over 10 years ago. Sadly many still yet have heard the call to wake up. She recently said our faith is weak, and she wants to awaken the faith in us.

She also said that we often fall into sin without conscience. This is very dangerous for the soul. So many souls are steeped in darkness, walking blindly and falling into even greater darkness and sin. All we have to do is look around us, and see the state of the world today to know that the heart of humanity is far from God.

Blessed Mother said to use this time, take advantage of her presence now, and seek grace for healing of your heart from God.

Does a mother know when a child is in pain? Of course she does. Imagine this mother looking down upon the earth piercing through our hearts in the flesh and seeing all the pain that has been caused in our lives from conception until today. This pain has led us to sin. Our Mother’s call is to turn to the mercy of God to heal the pain in our hearts.

Jesus said to St. Faustina, no matter if the sins be as scarlet, if we turn to the fount of His mercy, He will make our souls as white as snow. Many are mislead today and believe that to just believe in Jesus without works will have eternal life, and justify themselves in their sin, because they are too lazy or obstinate to change their lifestyle. Yet here Our Lady strongly said, WAKE UP. The world is in a spiritual coma. It needs to be awakened with one big alarm clock. God needs to shake us up to wake us up.

The Lord is stripping the world of all its false gods, all the idols we have made in the material world. Are we feeling it yet? Are we waking up, and stripping ourselves from gluttony and greed-from our obsessions and idolatry? What is the god in your life? Is it sports, exercise, money, power, sex? Where your heart is, there also will your treasure be.

The Lord is clear in His Word, in the end of revelation to humanity, that we do not know the day or the hour that the Lord will call us to Himself and He will ask us in that moment to give an account of our life before Him. He will judge us according to our deeds and in full truth. (Rev. 22:12) St. Faustina asked the Lord on one occasion why He did not punish souls now for the sin in the world? The Lord responded in a way that is very sobering…He said, “I have eternity to punish.” Do we want to seek God’s mercy now, or wait for His justice? This should be a no brainer question, but how many will ignore it?

If we have sin now on our soul un-reconciled, it will carry with us into eternal life. What we do in our body matters and imprinted on the soul. Our dear Mother wants us to heal from this pain of sin. She wants us to turn to Jesus to be set free from the chains that bind us to sin. She wants us happy and to dwell in peace. She wants to teach us how to be children of God. We have lost our way.

Our Lady said, “life on this earth is short compared to the one in eternity.” A great priest most of us know says often, “in the end you and I will be in heaven or in hell.” Here is the difference between the wheat and the chaff. We deceive ourselves into thinking that when we die we are canonized and go directly to heaven, especially when we have lived a life of sin. God is the final judge. And the mind and heart of God is far beyond the human intellect to be so prideful in thinking this way.

As we reflect further on her message I hear Our Lady ask for us to pray for those who do not know God’s love. This can be every one of us faith or nor faith. It is not someone out there. No! In reality it is all of us because we are all weak in faith. Mother just told us this on 9/25/10-your faith is weak. If God appeared before the world today in His fullness and glory, we could not stand before Him in truth…we’d die of fright.

If we knew the love of God and experienced as such, then we would fear God in our souls, and renounce sin. The love of God is to know who we are in truth, as mere creatures that are ashes and dust without the life of God within us. The Love of God is made present in His Son, Jesus Christ. There is no greater love than this.

The scripture from Luke’s gospel comes to mind for me. (Luke 2:41-52) We all know the story, the boy Jesus is lost in the temple. Joseph and Mary left Jerusalem thinking Jesus was with them in the caravan heading back to Nazareth. But they did not see Him among the relatives. It is easy to take for granted that God is always with us. But here He allowed His own parents to experience His loss and what it is really like without Him.

With anxiety the Word says, they searched for Him, not knowing where He was. They searched and searched for three days. Imagine the pain of not having the one they love with them, and not knowing if He was alive or dead. Imagine the thoughts playing on the mind.

Isn’t this the state of our human minds today? If we don’t have God, we fearful of our future? Do we fear evil? Our Lady said, “the one who prays is not afraid of the future, the one who fasts is not afraid of evil.” Are we worried about our jobs, our families or our loved ones? What about those who have died? Do we question if they are safely in heaven or not or do we just assume they are? Are we offering prayers, sacrifices, or masses for them?

Our Lady says, there are many souls in Purgatory who are forgotten and no one prays for them. What a great suffering for them to be forgotten and unloved. It is the same.

To be rooted in the love of God, there is no fear or loss. Because we have a foundation built upon the Crucified. The Crucified Jesus is incarnate and living in us. Are we bringing Him to life into the world by our deeds?

If we reflect on this scripture from Luke’s gospel further, when the parents find the child Jesus, He is in the temple among the high priests and elders. They are listening to Him and the wisdom He speaks. Jesus simply asked Joseph and Mary in a way of a matter of fact – like it was nothing. He said, “Why were you looking for me? Did you not know I must be in my Father’s House?” (Luke. 2:49)

Jesus clearly explains to us exactly where He is. He is in His Father’s house. Can we make this any more clearer? He is in the Church, fully present in the in the tabernacle whole human person, body, blood, soul and divinity in the Most Blessed Sacrament.

Who in their right mind would not want this great grace is beyond me? And still how many doubt the Word of God Himself, Who said this IS MY BODY, THIS IS MY BLOOD GIVEN UP FOR YOU. You have been purchased for a price! Your life is not your own. It belongs to God.(1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

God is with us! He is fully present, and fully alive in our midst! How we pay little or no attention to Him and treat Him as if He is a dead object. If we see with the eyes of faith, we see Him in truth and experience Him in the flesh.

He said clearly, we must EAT HIS FLESH AND DRINK HIS BLOOD to have life IN HIM. (John 6:54) We must discern our bodies before partaking in the Eucharistic sacrifice. (1 Corinthians 11:27-32) St. Paul is clear, that if we eat and drink unworthily, then we bring judgment upon ourselves. We are weak in the flesh, ill and dead in sin because we are ignorant of the sins we are committing against the Lord, His Church, and to each other. You may be living and breathing in the flesh in the world esteem, but no life in your soul my dear friends if we do not live this word with our whole hearts, our minds and in our bodies. “If you but knew the gift of God and Who is saying this to you…” (John 4:10)

Blessed Mother said, there is NOBODY ON THIS EARTH who does not need monthly confession….and MONTHLY CONFESSION WILL BE THE REMEDEY FOR THE CHURCH IN THE WEST. This excludes no body! These are sobering words my friends. Nobody is above the law. Every human being will die someday. Heaven or Hell, that is the choice we can freely make.

Let us turn to the mercy of God, while there is still time for granting mercy.

“Behold, I am coming soon. I bring with me the recompense I will give to each according to his deeds. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” Blessed are they who wash their robes so as to have the right to the tree of life and enter the city through its gates. Outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the unchaste, the murderers, the idol-worshipers, and all who love and practice deceit.” I, Jesus, sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the root and offspring of David, the bright morning star.” The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let the hearer say, “Come.” Let the one who thirsts come forward, and the one who wants it receive the gift of life-giving water.” (Revelation 22:12-17)

Humble Devotion? Part II

Jesus I trust in You

As we reflect again on this message today, I was given further light and still called to go deeper into my heart.

I was given an image of myself in my own motherhood talking to my own children, and how I would emphasize something to them from the heart something that I needed them to do, because I was suffering and hurting for them, knowing they were not behaving properly. Yet I have to humble myself before them in love, to hopefully touch their heart with my motherly heart, trusting they love me enough to listen.

This is how I hear the words of this message today, with great emphasis, as if Blessed Mother is speaking to me as her little child saying, ‘my dear little one, oh my little one please be humble, please, please be more humble and stop doing what you are doing.

And then in the presence of the Lord before the most Blessed Sacrament, as I continued to reflect all the more, the Litany of Humility was given, as I was called to examine myself in this way. Below is the message again for the sake of the reader…

“Dear children! Today I call you to a humble, my children, humble devotion. Your hearts need to be just. May your crosses be your means in the battle against the sins of the present time.

May your weapon be patience and boundless love – a love that knows to wait and which will make you capable of recognizing God’s signs – that your life, by humble love, may show the truth to all those who seek it in the darkness of lies.

My children, my apostles, help me to open the paths to my Son. Once again I call you to pray for your shepherds. Along side them, I will triumph. Thank you.” (10/2/10-Queen of Peace to Mirjana)

What is a humble devotion I have to ask myself? Through the Litany of Humility, (which I have posted below) I have to reflect on this great prayer, I really begin to see myself in truth.

How many of us seek that attention, and want to be noticed by our accomplishments, so that we can be given that pat on the back to boost our ego? How many times have I cried out for love, and then got angry because someone did not love me the way I needed love from them?

Are we boastful of our accomplishments, or do we give glory to where glory is due, that is to the Almighty God the Creator who gave us the gifts and talents and opened the doors for us to be that witness, so that we can show His glory living in us.

How many times did Jesus admonish the Pharisees and Scribes in the gospels, encouraging his apostles NOT to do as they did seeking honor and glory for themselves. (Matthew 23, Luke 11, Luke 6) Are we seeking the same praise within?

The Lord said, “Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.” (Mt. 23:12)

How many times have I sought the approval of another to be affirmed in what I am doing? Have I sought the counsel of the Lord to make sure it is within His will?

Do I rejoice in the failure of another? If we believe that Jesus is alive in every person are we not the same people who condemned Him and crucified him on the cross? Yes we are!

Humble devotion…what about our brothers and sisters who have fallen from grace, or our priests/bishops or religious leaders. Do we scoff at them or judge them and say they deserve their just punishment, or do we offer mercy and prayer for them? For there go I except for the grace of God. I know myself, I can easy fall back into my former way, for I am weak. It is only God’s grace I am sustained.

However, God himself in His great mercy has been very patient with us and the world, His children, those who call themselves Christian.

Really in truth, the justice of God would be justified today for the sins of the world, and our own sins of tolerance. Should we not be the same for our neighbor? No! We do not condone the sin, but we should correct and be our brother keeper for the dignity of the human person, and for the sake of the salvation of the soul.

Our Lady counseled the visionaries on several occasions when they were little children on how they should act. Following are some of her teachings to them…

Regarding temptations from the devil; “With respect to sin, it suffices to give it serious consideration and soon move ahead to correct the sin…”

“Your humility must be proud and your pride should be humble. If you have received a gift from God, you must be proud but do not say that it is yours. Say rather, that it is God’s.” (1981)

“…these days are the days which you need to decide for God, for peace and for the good. May every hatred and jealousy disappear from your life and your thoughts, and may there only dwell love for God and for your neighbor. Thus only thus shall you be able to discern the sign of this time. I am with you to guide you into a new time, a time which God gives you as grace, so that you may get to know Him more…” (1/25/93)

“…I call all of you to open your hearts to the love of God that is so great and open to each one of you…if you do not first love God, then you will neither be able to love neighbor nor the one you hate…pray that you will discover love…” (4/25/95)

“…decide for God and daily conversion. You cannot be converted little children if you do not abandon sins and do not decide for love toward God and neighbor…” (1/25/02)

Our Lady makes it clear that satan moves in our pride and is behind it and will boost our pride to lead us into sin. Open wounds in the heart are open doors for the enemy to come in and minister to our hearts. This is why jealousy and hatred need to be mended and reconciled. It is for our own sake.

Where there are wounds there is no discernment because we are acting through our emotional hurts and pains, and then we cannot seek out God clearly nor recognize His work in us. Our Lady, our Mother wants to teach us how to be good children, faithful to God, but in humility realizing anything good that we do, comes from Him.

Our Lady calls us to a love that is pleasing to God. In truth, this love is Agape. It is the love that drove Jesus to the Cross that is pleasing to God. How many hated Him, how many beat Him, how many looked on and mocked Him?

And His response was “Father forgive them…” Forgive them! Could He have fought back? YES. Did He, NO. Could He have gotten off the Cross? YES. Did He? NO! He knew the Triumph of the Cross. He knew the Victory. He had the full vision of the plan of God before Him. There is power in the cross!

Fear keeps us from getting on the cross. Fear makes us run as the apostles ran at the crucifixion. Who stayed at the cross? Blessed Mother, the beloved disciple and some women stayed. What fear is making you run from your cross? Fear of death. Fear of pain. Fear of rejection. Fear of abandonment. Fear of failure. And the litany goes on below. Perfect love of God casts out all fear. The victory is on the cross! What is the root of your fear?

The enemy said to Jesus, “get off the cross, come down from there.” The enemy knew it was defeated at the cross. The weapon is the cross and humbly submitting and surrendering to our crosses patiently and with love and saying thy will be done Lord.

One of the most serious messages the Mother gave the world was given in the United States to Mirjana in February 1990. As if she was admonishing the children of the U.S. This message I am posting in a shorter version, yet it can be found in open records….

“…I wish to be your connection to the profound faith. Listen to me! Take your rosary and get your children, your families with you. This is the way to come to salvation.

Give your good example to your children; give a good example to those who do not believe. You will not have happiness on this earth, neither will you come to heaven if you are not with pure and humble hearts, and do not fulfill the law of God.

I am asking for your help to join me to pray for those who do not believe. You are helping me very little. You have little charity or love for your neighbor and God gave you the love and showed you how you should forgive and love others. For that reason, reconcile and purify your soul. Take your rosary and pray it. All your suffering take patiently. You should remember that Jesus was patiently suffering for you…Do not impose your faith on unbelievers. Show it to them by your example and pray for them. My children, pray!

I speak to you my fellow brothers and sisters in all humility as one who has experienced crucifixion through and through, and witness to the saving power of God through the cross. What I speak of here in these words I speak through experience as one who has been there, but also as one who must press on all the more to finish the race to the end. It is love for souls that drives me to share in this way, and through the subtle promptings of the Mother who has called me to this simple ministry hoping her messages will reach those who do not know her yet.

Our Mother in heaven is pleading to her children to help her and to cooperate in her plan. She desires to see all of us in heaven with her. She is giving good counsel on the way, and this way is through the cross. If we desire heaven, we must pass through the way that Jesus taught us, the way of the cross.

As more light comes in the meaning of this powerful message will I continue to share. Please I beg you in this time, if you have not yet, take with seriousness the message, and put it to life so that you can say, ‘there I have lived the message…” and maybe God in His infinite mercy will take pity on our souls. We do not want His justice.

Remember the words of Our Mother who said, that we cannot enter heaven if we are not pure of heart and humble. By her message today my dear brothers and sisters we have still a long way to go. As our Mother said, it is because of God’s great mercy she is still with us. I beg the Father that she remains with us, we need her to guide us through this dark world.

Remember the word of Jesus in Divine Mercy to St. Faustina, “…before the day of justice, I am sending the day of mercy (1588). I am prolonging the time of mercy for the sake of sinners. But woe to them if they do not recognize this time of my visitation. (1160) While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My mercy (848) He who refuses to pass through the door of My mercy must pass through the door of My justice.” (1146)

“Woe to the faint of heart who trust not, who therefore will have no shelter! Woe to you who have lost hope! what will you do at the visitation of the LORD? Those who fear the LORD disobey not his words; those who love him keep his ways. Those who fear the LORD seek to please him, those who love him are filled with his law. Those who fear the LORD prepare their hearts and humble themselves before him. Let us fall into the hands of the LORD and not into the hands of men, For equal to his majesty is the mercy that he shows.” (Sirach 2:13-18)
