"...if only you would open your hearts..."

“…if only you would open your hearts…”

“Dear children; If only you would open your hearts to me with complete trust, you would comprehend everything. You would comprehend with how much love I am calling you; with how much love I desire to change you, to make you happy; with how much love I desire to make you followers of my Son and give you peace in the fullness of my Son. You would comprehend the immeasurable greatness of my motherly love. That is why, my children, pray because through prayer your faith grows and love is born, the love along which even the cross is not unendurable because you do not carry it alone. In union with my Son you glorify the name of the Heavenly Father. Pray, pray for the gift of love, because love is the only truth: it forgives everything, it serves everyone and it sees a brother in everyone. My children, my apostles, great is the trust that the Heavenly Father has given you through me, His handmaid, to help those who do not know Him, that they may reconcile with Him and follow Him. That is why I am teaching you love, because only if you have love will you be able to respond to Him. Again I am calling you to love your shepherds and to pray that, at this difficult time, the name of my Son may be glorified under their guidance. Thank you.”

“…be far from sin and temptation”

“Dear children! With joy in my heart I call all of you to live your faith and to witness it with your heart and by your example in every way. Decide, little children, to be far from sin and temptation and may there be joy and love for holiness in your hearts. I love you, little children, and accompany you with my intercession before the Most High. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Jesus, you are my only peace in this restless time

Jesus, you are my only peace in this restless time

JUNE 2, 2013 MEDJUGORJE MESSAGE VIA MIRJANA

“Dear children, in this restless time, anew I am calling you to set out after my Son – to follow Him. I know of the pain, suffering and difficulties, but in my Son you will find rest; in Him you will find peace and salvation. My children, do not forget that my Son redeemed you by His Cross and enabled you, anew, to be children of God; to be able to, anew, call the Heavenly Father, “Father”. To be worthy of the Father, love and forgive, because your Father is love and forgiveness. Pray and fast, because that is the way to your purification, it is the way of coming to know and becoming cognizant of the Heavenly Father. When you become cognizant of the Father, you will comprehend that He is all you need. I, as a mother, desire my children to be in a community of one single people where the Word of God is listened to and carried out.* Therefore, my children, set out after my Son. Be one with Him. Be God’s children. Love your shepherds as my Son loved them when He called them to serve you. Thank you.”

*Our Lady said this resolutely and with emphasis.

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!

Healing prayer of Forgivness

Father forgive me a sinner

Father forgive me a sinner

NOTE: IF YOU SEE ADS ATTACHED TO THIS SIGHT, THEY ARE NOT OF OUR DOING. THIS SITE DOES NOT ADVERTISE FOR ANYONE. WE ARE WORKING ON FIXING THE PROBLEM!

This is a great spiritual exercise for individuals, families, healing ministries and retreat groups

The Lord says that the fasting He desires is to set the oppressed free. There is much oppression when we are not able to forgive someone and hold a grudge against them.

Spend time in this prayer as a healing for yourself and to those whom may have hurt or sinned against you, and for those you may have caused hurt or pain to yourself. Remember, it is natural to still feel hurt and/or pain for any wrong that has been done to us. But taking steps to consciously forgive, and bringing Jesus into the pain will help begin the healing process, and take the power away from satan who wants to keep us in the pain because it is an open door for him to enter and provoke us to sin.

After each exercise, list as much as you can and bring it all to Jesus at the foot of the cross and visibly nail the pain to the cross to console the heart of Jesus, and watch what He does with the pain you have given to him in return.

Set the captives free!

Prayer of forgiveness

Loving Father, through Jesus your beloved Son, crucified on the cross I choose to forgive everyone in my life, including myself because you have forgiven me. Thank you Lord, for this grace. I forgive myself for all my sins, faults and failings, especially (list all the things you cannot forgive yourself for). I forgive myself for not being perfect, I accept myself and make a decision to stop picking on myself and being my own worst enemy. I release the things that I hold against myself and free myself from bondage and make peace with myself by the power of the Holy Spirit.

I forgive my Mother in her human weakness for any negativity and unlove she may have caused t me throughout my life, knowing or unknowingly, especially for _____________ Or for any abuse of any sort, I forgive her today. For any way that she did not provide a deep, full satisfying mother’s blessing. I do forgive her today. I release her from bondage and make peace with her today before Jesus crucified, and I ask Jesus in His mercy to cover her with His divine grace.

I forgive my Father in his human weaknesss for any negativity and unlove he may have caused t me throughout my life, knowing or unknowingly, especially for _____________ Or for any and all abuse of any sort, unkind acts, hurts and deprivations I do forgive him today. For any way that he did not provide a deep, full satisfying father’s blessing. I do forgive him today. I release him from bondage and make peace with him today before Jesus crucified, and I ask Jesus in His mercy to cover him with His divine grace.

Father forgive them, they know not what they do

Father forgive them, they know not what they do

(for adults can repeat the same for SPOUSE/Children)

I forgive my SISTERS AND BROTHERS for any negativity and unlove especially (name sibling/specific event or behavior). I forgive my BLOOD RELATIVES for any abuses, especially ______________. I forgive my ANCESTORS for any negative actions that affect my life today and make it harder for me today to live in the freedom of a child of God. I release them all from bondage and make peace with them today in Jesus’ name.

I forgive my FRIENDS for any actions of negativity and unlove, especially for ______________. For any time they abused our relationship or led me astray far from Jesus and your Kingdom. I do forgive them. I release them all from bondage this day and make peace with them, in the power of the Holy Spirit.

(You can include same wording for EMPLOYERS; SCHOOL TEACHERS/DOCTORS, LAWYERS, NURSES, CLERGY, all representatives of the Church ETAL)

I forgive any member of SOCIETY who has hurt me in any way; those who have hurt me by criminal action or who have harmed my family, I forgive all in public life who have passed laws opposing Christian values. I forgive all the unfair, anonymous sources of pain and annoyance in my life.

Heavenly Father, I now ask for the grace to forgive the ONE PERSON IN MY LIFE WHO HAS HURT ME THE MOST for the sake of my love for Jesus your Son who loves and forgives them and died for them. This one is the hardest for me to forgive, but I now choose to forgive them before Jesus, even through I am still angry and hurt. I also make peace with the one family member, the one friend and the one authority figure who has hurt me the most.

Lord, is there anyone else that I need to forgive? (Be still and listen for what may come to your heart)

Thank you Father for the immeasurable love you have for me and for your Son Jesus who is setting me free in this moment. I now pray that your blessing will come on all those who have hurt me. Lord do something special for each of them this day. Thank you Lord. I praise you in your mercy and goodness. I ask for the grace to always strive for peace, and to choose love over all things. Jesus I trust in you. Holy Mary, Mother of God pray for us.

Calling You Apostles of the Latter Times, part I

Today I thought I would share my personal prayer experience with this most recent message of Our Lady via Mirjana. I only write and post on this blog when I feel called to write.

Come Holy Spirit and bring a new baptism of your grace over us

Come Holy Spirit and bring a new baptism of your grace over us

Heaven was speaking loud this holy season of Christmas, with messages from four of the visionaries; all of whom were in different places. I have been praying my little heart out asking which message applies to my heart and family life, and how do we live it. Here we are now, several days at the close of the Christmas season and many things are coming to light in these message.

I encourage all to take these message to heart through deep contemplation. You cannot comprehend Our Lady’s words without prayer in the Holy Spirit, simply because Her words are authored by the Divine Author Himself. Let your hearts soak in the words, so that you are able to experience the Words from Heaven, and allow the little child Jesus Who was planted in your hearts to continue to grow anew in you.

For review below is the message of Our Lady given on 1/2/13 at the beginning of this new year. Keep in mind the extraordinary Word the Lord spoke as the infant child on Christmas day. “I am your peace, live my commandments.”

January 02, 2013 Message to Mirjana

“Dear children, with much love and patience I strive to make your hearts like unto mine. I strive, by my example, to teach you humility, wisdom and love because I need you; I cannot do without you my children.

According to God’s will I am choosing you, by His strength I am strengthening you. Therefore, my children, do not be afraid to open your hearts to me. I will give them to my Son and in return, He will give you the gift of Divine peace. You will carry it to all those whom you meet, you will witness God’s love with your life and you will give the gift of my Son through yourselves.

Through reconciliation, fasting and prayer, I will lead you. Immeasurable is my love. Do not be afraid. My children, pray for the shepherds. May your lips be shut to every judgment, because do not forget that my Son has chosen them and only He has the right to judge. Thank you.”

Our Lady began to remind us of her role as Mother. She is perfect Mother. A Mother with great love and patience for her child. A Mother who is teaching us how to be good. Wow! I thought, she wants my heart to be like hers. She wants me to have her humility, her wisdom, her Motherly love for those that God places in my life and those whom I meet.

Think about this for just a moment. We are talking about an Immaculate spotless heart, that flames and is burning out of love. A heart that is pierced, time and time again, by those who reject her, pay no regard to her, those who blaspheme against her Son and God, those who reject Truth, those who murder, commit sin and I can go on and on.

Her Immaculate heart feels pain for every bit of sin that opposes God and His Commandments, and all abuses to Her Son Jesus Christ and His Church.

Many of us don’t even realize it but we share in this pain with her already. But how are we expressing our pain is another story. Remember, this Woman the New Eve bared all in the silence of her heart, with the words ‘Amen, so be it‘ with great love and patience. This is exactly how she is speaking to us today, with great love and patience, putting up with us miserable sinful creatures whose hearts are cold, indifferent, slothful, critical, judgmental, boastful, puffed up, and well I think you can get the message here.

My heart burns and flames for love of you

My heart burns and flames for love of you

Is our likeness unto hers? I know I absolutely fall short of her goodness, her holiness, and her obedience. But this is what SHE DESIRES, and wants to teach us how to do live this way. Friends, we have to give her our ear, so we know how. We do not know how. Don’t think that you do, because you are human, you are a broken creature, and filled with wounds of the heart and sin.

The Mother said it is God who wills this to be so. God has chosen you. God has given you as a gift to her to cooperate with her in this plan, to walk with her, and learn from her so that we can be a visible witness to her and her presence in the world. Friends, if you are chosen by God, then should be not ought to strive to live the call worthy of what we receive. We have to work all the more harder, for to be chosen by God is a great, great (and I use this word in universal terms, not in human terms) GREAT gift, but comes with GREAT responsibility.

Our Lady gives a remedy however. If we do walk with her, if we do in the little ways she is asking us then she said very clearly…

“…by His strength I am strengthening you. Therefore, my children, do not be afraid to open your hearts to me. I will give them to my Son and in return, He will give you the gift of Divine peace. You will carry it to all those whom you meet, you will witness God’s love with your life and you will give the gift of my Son through yourselves…”

(continued in part II)

Ave Maria!

“Jesus summoned the crowd with his disciples and said to them, ‘Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and that of the gospel will save it…” (Mark 8:34-37)

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)
