Official Prayer to St. John Paul II by Vatican

dmpjp2

Vatican issues official prayer to St. John Paul II:

Oh, St. John Paul, from the window of heaven, grant us your blessing! Bless the church that you loved and served and guided, courageously leading it along the paths of the world in order to bring Jesus to everyone and everyone to Jesus. Bless the young, who were your great passion. Help them dream again, help them look up high again to find the light that illuminates the paths of life here on earth.

May you bless families, bless each family! You warned of Satan’s assault against this precious and indispensable divine spark that God lit on earth. St. John Paul, with your prayer, may you protect the family and every life that blossoms from the family.

Pray for the whole world, which is still marked by tensions, wars and injustice. You tackled war by invoking dialogue and planting the seeds of love: pray for us so that we may be tireless sowers of peace.

Oh St. John Paul, from heaven’s window, where we see you next to Mary, send God’s blessing down upon us all. Amen.

Forgive us Our Debts; AS WE FORGIVE OTHERS

As I have done for you, so you must do for others

As I have done for you, so you must do for others

Reflection on May 2, 2013 Medjugorje Message

Dear Friends:

Like many who are voicing their thoughts about Our Lady’s recent message given to Mirjana on May 2, 2013, I also have been doing a full examination of conscience. Especially after her message of 4/25/13 when she also said that we are still far away from her.

Then I begin to wonder myself, how am I offending the Lord? Where am I judging? Where am I gossiping? How am I not loving? Am I heading down the path to perdition as she said many of her own children are doing?

Earlier this year, the Mother of God declared that ‘satan was cunning and leading many souls into perdition.” All we have to do is look around us and see all the meyhem and chaos that is going on with government, politics, world leaders, uprisings, hatreds, wars, persecutions, and all the wars in the family, family tree and more. Well now that puts it more into perspective doesn’t it?

But what about me personally? All war begets in the heart before it is manifested into the world, and around us. Something stirs inside of us when we just don’t like something, and then it begins to fester and grow, until we begin to get angry and more bent out of shape, which then causes divisions, distractions, then we accuse and start the battles. I’m sure you all know what I mean.

So now we have to see it from this view. The Mother of God, sent from heaven is coming to the earth to convey a message from God. God is looking upon the earth and what does He see and hear on this earth?

This is what God said through her in this message that comes from Heaven and how the world is offending the Lord in the present time.

“Dear children; Anew, I am calling you to love and not to judge. My Son, according to the will of the Heavenly Father, was among you to show you the way of salvation, to save you and not to judge you. If you desire to follow my Son, you will not judge but love like your Heavenly Father loves you. And when it is the most difficult for you, when you are falling under the weight of the cross do not despair, do not judge, instead remember that you are loved and praise the Heavenly Father because of His love. My children, do not deviate from the way on which I am leading you. Do not recklessly walk into perdition. May prayer and fasting strengthen you so that you can live as the Heavenly Father would desire; that you may be my apostles of faith and love; that your life may bless those whom you meet; that you may be one with the Heavenly Father and my Son. My children, that is the only truth, the truth that leads to your conversion, and then to the conversion of all those whom you meet – those who have not come to know my Son – all those who do not know what it means to love. My children, my Son gave you a gift of the shepherds. Take good care of them. Pray for them. Thank you.” ( May 2, 2013 )

When I prayed about this message in my own examination of conscience I was given a simple remedy. That remedy was the:

Prayer of St. Faustina for the Grace to Be Merciful to Others.

If one prays this prayer, then he/she will be conscious of how they in themselves are committing sin.

Friends, Our Lady is directing this to everyone. There is no one excluded. But she emphasized very clearly who she is speaking to; ‘those who desire to follow Jesus her Son’.

…If you desire to follow my Son, you will not judge but love like your Heavenly Father loves you. And when it is most difficult for you, when you are falling under the weight of the cross do not despair, do not judge, instead remember that you are loved, and praise the Heavenly Father because of His love….

We have much to be angry about. Sin is ugly and it has an ugly face. And we easily direct our hatred to those who commit such ugly offenses against us because we see their face, and not what is behind the face. We forget however, we also offend others, by our own self righteousness, boasting in ourselves thinking that we are all doing what we should be doing living out our faith and so on, while we get angry at those who are not. I encounter and have had many conversations about all the sinners in the Church, he/she does or does not like this person, this priest, this or that.

We forget that we are just these ones we complain about if it were not for the grace of God! What High expectations we put on others without them knowing we have placed them on them!

Let us not forget friends, the burden of responsibility falls on those who are in His grace. Those who have the light, and walk in truth to be good examples, of Christian love. Jesus loved us in our mess and in our sin. He came to us right where we were in our ugliness and raised us up, and taught us about His mercy and gave us a gift of conversion of heart to love him. We have to pray for the same grace for those who do not know Him.

Forgive me Lord!

Forgive me Lord!

We are called to love and forgive just as He has done for us, if you are walking with Jesus. Believe me I am preaching to myself here. But the time is urgent now. Just look around you and see how many unbelievers you encounter every day, beginning in the home. How are they going to know the love of God, if they are not experiencing it through the ones who say they love them.

I say this beginning with me. Dying to self, and conquering and overcoming all the pains and the wounds, and the hurts caused to us, to love another, is a heroic act.

But Our Lady made it clear, prayer and fasting and acts of penance is where the strength comes to do this.

We pray every day the Lord’s prayer to forgive us AS WE FORGIVE OTHERS. Here is a condition on the mercy of God. If we are not forgiving, neither will we be forgiven ourselves. We really need to check our hearts. I have posted not to long ago also Healing Prayer of Forgiveness that can be found in this sight. We really need to be working on our hearts in this time.

Pray for the grace to fast. On a separate post I will post St. Fuastina’s prayer to be merciful so all can refer when they find it difficult to exercise mercy. And let us all hold each other up in prayer in this difficult time.

To God be glory for His mercy and patience with us! Ave Maria!

Appeal to the Lord in Mercy

While praying for our country recently, the Holy Spirit led me in this way.

As I entered into Holy Mass, I saw myself as a peasant woman, dressed in rags, sitting at the feet of Jesus who is the King. Jesus was not dressed however in royal garments, but in a white garment sitting on a large Rock. I felt his kingship and authority and I could sense there was something that He wanted to show me or say.

O Lord Mighty God we have no one but you!

At the foot of Jesus, I have been pleading to Him as my King asking Him to awaken the faith of His people, especially here in the United States. I felt the people of this nation were giving up on prayer to their God for change and conversion of this country, as if it is futile, as if to concede to the works of the enemy like its hopeless.

I do not believe this Lord! I believe in your goodness. You are the God of mercy! Jesus I believe in you!

The world powers are moving in and taking over. They are robbing and stealing, overriding the laws of the land, your governing laws you have established for your people, and have become a lawless people. Our Lady just said, ‘SATAN IS CUNNING AND LEADING MANY HEARTS TO PERDITION” (10/25/12). satan is at work here!

But your law has a foundation in the Eternal Word, the Eternal law, the universal covenant which you have established in the blood of Jesus your Son.

We need a miracle Lord! We need a miracle to awaken the faith of “WE THE PEOPLE”. WE THE PEOPLE ARE HELPLESS and have no other God but you. Only You Lord can deliver this people, only you.

It seems that even your soldiers are giving up the battle. Where are they Lord. Who will unite in prayer and sacrifice with you?

You said that you would reign until you have put all your enemies under your feet and the last enemy is death. Look at death now creeping over the globe, appearing to seduce the nations, and your people. It wants to devour and destroy your people and rousing war and destruction in the hearts of men. It is an abyss of darkness creeping over the entire earth, filling the lands, the homes, the governments, as if it has gained more power, as if it it thinks it has the victory and has defeated You O Lord Mighty God.

O Lord God of Mercy, crush the oppressor! Tighten the belt of truth and bring the light of the new days dawn upon the earth! Hear our prayers and the cries and supplications of your faithful ones, that we may be your people and you will be our God. Jesus I believe in you! Jesus I believe in you! Jesus I believe in you! Come Lord Jesus…Come.

The Lord has taken me back to the image He began while I am still at His feet, humbled before him with my face to his feet. Jesus put his hands on my head as to console me in my tears, and then He stands up looking out over the horizon from the inner cave we were in. I feel He is praying, but I do not know what He is saying in Spirit, but I sense He is praying to the Father. I cannot see the Father, but I sense His presence with Jesus in this hour.

Jesus I appeal to your mercy

I feel strongly again the Prayer of Esther (see below) that keeps coming to my heart again, who has interceded to the King when Haman wanted to destroy a nation of God’s people.

Dear friends, appeal to the Lord int his way through the prayer of Esther, with fasting, supplication and penance. I feel the hour has come when the Lord will manifest himself over the earth as the crucified, who will redeem this fallen humanity.

“She lay prostrate upon the ground, together with her handmaids, from morning until evening, and said: “God of Abraham, God of Isaac, and God of Jacob, blessed are you. Help me, who am alone and have no help but you, for I am taking my life in my hand. As a child I used to hear from the books of my forefathers that you, O LORD, always free those who are pleasing to you. Now help me, who am alone and have no one but you, O LORD, my God.

“And now, come to help me, an orphan. Put in my mouth persuasive words in the presence of the lion
and turn his heart to hatred for our enemy, so that he and those who are in league with him may perish. Save us from the hand of our enemies; turn our mourning into gladness and our sorrows into wholeness.” (Est C:12, 14-16, 23-25)

Is Your Cross to Heavy?

Behold I make all things new

Normally I do not share to much of our personal life, but I felt in my heart there are many who can benefit from this reflection.

Our Lady has been calling us to begin working on our hearts again, because she wants to clothe us in her garments. I began searching what this meant for me personally, knowing again that this usually means that I am about to press into another area of a painful wound in my heart.

How heavy is the burden of your cross in this time?

How I have to ask this question. Seems that we have been bearing a lot these days, one thing after another from a family stand point. And it seems to be getting heavier for us. We are just plum tired and I use the words battle fatigued.

I take to prayer to Lord all these matters and it seems no avail the questions I ask the Lord in prayer seem to be unanswered. Until the other day as I lamented in tears with Jesus, just trying to figure out when these crosses will become lighter because the fatigue is wearing on me from day to day.

I felt the Lord speak in my soul these words,

“I am permitting these crosses my love. Bear them with great love and patience. Do not fear. My hand is always ready to support you in your time of need.”

Did He say that He was going to take the cross away? NO! He did not. But I am reminded of the words of our Lady who once said, “give me all your problems and difficulties. Bear your cross with patience. Remember how Jesus suffered patiently for you…”

He said to bear them with great patience and love and further to keep the eyes of my heart on Him. Oh what a heavy sigh I find myself in.

I have been begging the Lord for a retreat of a sort just to be able to get vertical with Him and go into the silence. My idea of a retreat is to get away somewhere in the hidden beauty of God’s creation. I am in the barren desert with no oasis in sight it seems.

Jesus I trust in you

The Lord has answered this request in a quite different way than I expected. He led me to St. Faustina’s Diary with the reflection of the first day of a nine day retreat she was about to enter into. It seems my retreat will be entering into her retreat and following her way with the Lord into my heart. which begins with this message:

(Diary 1326-28) “My daughter, this retreat will be an uninterrupted contemplation. I will bring you into this retreat as into a spiritual banquet. Close to my merciful heart, you will meditate upon all the graces your heart has received and a deep peace will accompany your soul. I want the eyes of your soul to be always fixed on my holy will since it is in this way that you please me most. No sacrifice can compare to this. Throughout all the exercises you will remain close to my heart. You shall not undertake any reforms, because I will dispose of your whole life as I see fit…”

I began to bear many thoughts, fears, worries and anxieties of my heart to the Lord to bring them all to the light and entrust them to Him. I do not understand the way He is leading me. Perhaps I will understand when this retreat of my heart concludes, more light will come.

Yet this day on day #2, I found some consolation and a bit of confirmation about the way I am dialoging with the Lord through my prayer journal.

St. Faustina today this second day had an encounter with satan who was howling and screaming because she was writing everything down from the depth of her heart. She said that the powers of darkness have no power over the soul, when the soul entrusts everything to God in this way, and that the devils hate this, as they work in darkness in the depths of the soul to keep it in its misery.

And again I heard the Lord say from the depth of my heart:

“Withhold nothing from Me, no matter the great misery of your soul. Confide all of yourself, and leave everything to me. Contemplate my goodness and glorify my mercy.”

We will see where this journey of the heart leads us. I will share insofar as the Lord permits me to.

“Jesus told his disciples; “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me…” (Mt. 16:24)

Daily Act of Reparation and Prayer to the Holy Cross

Jesus have mercy on me a sinner

Forgive me Lord for my lack of gratitude toward you and your goodness, and the immeasurable love you have for me a sinner. I thank you for the constant outpouring of your graces upon my soul. I have become anxious and ungrateful when I do not understand your way and your perfect will for me.

Forgive me Lord when I despise the gifts you have given to me, and I grumble and complain against you, especially in carrying my daily cross. How this grieves you and wounds your most Sacred Heart.

Teach me and help me to know you more intimately and to adore you on the holy cross which won the victory for my salvation. Through my own suffering lead me on the right path; the path you have chosen for me that leads to my salvation.

I unite myself with you and I thank you for the cross that you have blessed upon me, there where I am most intimate with you. I choose to embrace this daily cross, in my daily duties at work, and at home and live out the vocation you have called me to; to the full as you desire for me. I desire the grace to love you with great affection, remembering how patiently you carried the cross and suffered for me.

I freely choose you this day and say yes to you, bearing my own suffering in silence in the spirit of repentance for the forgiveness of sins and for the grave offenses committed against you, your holy cross and your Most Sacred Heart. I beg of you complete pardon for my offenses and the sins of others committed against you, and ask for an ardent and fervent love for Jesus Christ and his holy Mother, the Immaculate Virgin Mary.

My Lady and my Mother who was given to me by your Son at the foot of the cross, obtain for me the grace to surrender all things accepting every trial that may come. In the perfect will of God, pray that I may not refuse His grace for me through your hands. Help me in my weakness that I may always seek refuge in your Immaculate Heart especially when I find it most difficult to carry my cross, and that my daily offering may pass through your holy hands to your Son Jesus crucified. Help me dear Mother to not offend Him or commit offense against His work of redemption in me. I ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, and through the working power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

“Perhaps you are filled with shame for causing My bitter passion. Do not be afraid. This cross inflicts a mortal injury, not on Me, but on death. These nails no longer pain Me, but only deepen your love for Me. I do not cry out because of these wounds, but through them I draw you into My heart. My body was stretched on the cross as a symbol, not of how much I suffered but of My all-embracing love. I count it no loss to shed My blood: it is the price I have paid for your ransom. Come, then, return to Me and learn to know Me as your father, who repays good for evil, love for injury and boundless charity for piercing wounds” (St. Peter Chrysologus).

(Make a humble act of reparation or act of penance to visibly show your commitment to follow Jesus and the way of the cross and adore Him on the cross. This prayer may be prayed at the foot of the crucifix, before the Most Blessed Sacrament or in private).

Jesus I Trust in you

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

Message to Mirjana – June 2, 2011

Look into your hearts dear children....

Dear children,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Come Holy Spirit, come!

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

Medjugorje Monthly Message – Seek the Grace of Conversion

My children, seek the grace of conversion

“Dear children! My prayer today is for all of you who seek the grace of conversion. You knock on the door of my heart, but without hope and prayer, in sin, and without the Sacrament of Reconciliation with God. Leave sin and decide, little children, for holiness. Only in this way can I help you, hear your prayers and seek intercession before the Most High. Thank you for having responded to my call.” May 25, 2011

Listen my friends to the heart cry of the Mother of God and how she is praying for us, especially those who seek conversion of heart.

She says we keep coming to her asking for her help in prayer, but we are marked with sin, and desperate and without hope. We cannot ask anything without faith. Remember, Jesus never performed a miracle without faith. It takes great faith to accomplish miracles.

Our Lady has been with us for so long, isn’t it about time we got it? We need to experience conversion of the heart. We need to change our lives, and our godless ways, and frequent the sacrament of reconciliation. Whose listening to her?

She is praying for us; YES THE MOTHER OF GOD IS PRAYING FOR US … that we leave the way of sin, and seek toward holiness in our vocations and in our present state in life. Return to God with all our hearts is her hearts desire for us. There is nothing and I mean NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT!

I don’t think men realize how offensive sin is to God, and how little we try to omit it from our lives, but go on as if we never once sin. Do we not know that the greatest sin of this century is the LOSS OF THE SENSE OF SIN? It is playing Russian Rulet my friends, a very dangerous way of life.

Holiness is a conscious decision that someone makes to do something, and then we have to act on it, and stay the course, no matter how difficult it may be.

God wants our salvation, nothing less. And He will permit crosses to come to us in order to obtain that salvation for us. Embrace your crosses my friends with great love.

When we embrace our cross, we are living the Christian way, just the way Jesus did. Not only until then is Our Lady able to help us. Remember the FIAT she gave to the world. She was not afraid to suffer for the sake of sinners. She embraced her suffering with great care, with a profound love for God. Even in her darkest hour she remained at the cross with her Son, never leaving her side.

This is what she does for us. This is where the power of grace comes. It is through our yes in our trials and tribulations. And through these daily crosses, grace is being won for us so that we have the strength the amend our lives, and change our hearts.

Everything in this time passes through her hands. Our Lady once said, “Give me all your problems and difficulties and pray for my intentions…” When we do this, she in turn will take what we offer to her, and give it to her Son, where she is unceasingly praying for the world.

Imagine her in this time standing at the foot of the cross, begging her Son to forgive the sins of the world. This is intercession. This is the most powerful ministry and gift given to mankind, and she is giving us an opportunity to share in it.

Let us all take these words to heart of the dear Mother, and ask her boldly what must change in your life for her to win your conversion of heart. We are coming into a time of Pentecost and Our Lady wants us to experience a new Pentecost. She wants us emptied of our self love and selfish desires, so we have room for the Holy Spirit to come. Remove sin and prepare the way of the Lord in your heart. Ave Maria.

“It is necessary for us to undergo many hardships to enter the Kingdom of God…” (Acts 19)
