To The Refuges On Wings of Eagles



"See, I am sending an angel before you, to guard you on the way and bring you to the place I have prepared. Be attentive to him and heed his voice. Do not rebel against him, for he will not forgive your sin. My authority resides in him. If you heed his voice and carry out all I tell you, I will be an enemy to your enemies and a foe to your foes." (Ex 23:20-22)


What About These Refuges?


Well, I can tell you that indeed they exist. I am a member of a group that has been chosen by Our Lord since 1993 to build and maintain one of His refuges. This refuge is located in the countryside, as predicted; and is under the spiritual direction of a Roman Catholic priest. Additionally Our Lord has told our group that when the time comes, He will carry us on wings of eagles over the chaos and devastation; and that the Blessed Virgin Mary will oversee the refuge during the time that we reside there fully-protected. There is a spring on the land, which Our Lord has told us will have both physical and emotional healing properties. He told us there will be animals there to tend to as well.

How do I know unequivocally that it is such a refuge? I don't, and neither do I know unequivocally that most things exist, or have occurred. With respect to the particular refuge that I am associated with, there are two primary non-public visionaries that Our Lord speaks through to guide us. Everyone within the group has experienced some sort of mystical experience, as we were told we would. Additionally, three other non-public visionaries and one public visionary have confirmed that it is to be such a refuge. I have been given many good reasons to believe each of the above mentioned visionaries.

Additionally with respect to both our group and to visitors to the refuge, several healings and many mystical occurrences have occurred; including my healing as discussed in my testimony, "Ben's Calling".

Years ago with our agreement to serve, Our Lord told us that our group had been taken out of the world, and were being put through rigorous training for the times to come. We continue to exist in the strictest sense by His Divine Providence and our confident trust therein. Without exception, since such time each of us has lived from hand to mouth financially. We experience various difficulties in waves which occur in intervals of every eight weeks or so. He has instructed us to answer these difficulties, with prayer, fasting, praying the Holy Rosary, attending the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and receiving Holy Communion, and by praying while kneeling before the Blessed Sacrament in Adoration.

Without exception, when we have done so, appropriate remedies have been provided timely from above.

Clearly, the purpose of the training is to provide the necessary experience to console, to direct and to train others in the future (1).




The Days of Elijah

Are Here ! (2)


At the Call To Holiness web site you will find a writing entitled: Refuges For Our Time. This writing is written anonymously. It is the only such alleged prophecy that Ron and I have posted without knowing the source. We posted it after much prayer, and after receiving a resultant feeling of peace. Notwithstanding these facts, much of the information contained in this writing, was conveyed previously to our refuge group, by Our Lord several years before the writing was provided to me by a friend. Such information contained in the writing coincides specifically and directly with what Our Lord had told our group years before.

Through certain public prophets, we have been told, that the homes of certain people will be refuges, as well. These will serve as refuges for those who can not travel longer distances and also as temporary stations for those traveling to other refuges.

So, should you rely upon Ron and I with respect to these prophecies? No, you should rely upon the Holy Spirit and His gift of Divine Discernment, and Holy Mother Church.

I mention the above for one reason. It is information that I have, and the sharing of the knowledge that such a refuge does exist may provide you increased peace and trust to know that substance already exists to the promises of Jesus. (NB: please do not make any further inquiries regarding this refuge, I will not respond. I asked for, and did receive, Our Lord's permission to divulge this much in advance of publishing this writing, and I am not at liberty to divulge any additional information at this time. Our guardian angels will lead us to the nearest refuge when the time arrives. Our Lord has His refuges located strategically throughout the world.).

With that in mind let us turn our attention to what Holy Scripture, the Fathers and Doctors and contemporary prophets have said in this respect. .




"When you see the desolating abomination spoken of through Daniel the prophet standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then those in Judea must flee to the mountains, a person on the housetop must not go down to get things out of his house, a person in the field must not return to get his cloak. Woe to pregnant women and nursing mothers in those days. Pray that your flight not be in winter or on the sabbath, for at that time there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will be. And if those days had not been shortened, no one would be saved; but for the sake of the elect they will be shortened."  (Mt 24:15-22) (Also, see Mk 13:14-19)

St. Luke recorded the above mentioned discussion of Our Lord differently: "Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and let those who are inside the city depart, and let not those who are out in the country enter it." . (Lk 21:21) .




A voice cries: "In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God…

Get you up to a high mountain, O Zion, herald of good tidings; lift up your voice with strength, O Jerusalem, herald of good tidings, lift it up, fear not; say to the cities of Judah, "Behold your God!"…

He will feed his flock like a shepherd, he will gather the lambs in his arms, he will carry them in his bosom, and gently lead those that are with young…

Why do you say, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel, 'My way is hid from the LORD, and my right is disregarded by my God'? Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary, his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." (Is 40:3-31)




"Then God's temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen within his temple; and there were flashes of lightning, voices, peals of thunder, an earthquake, and heavy hail.

And a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars; she was with child and she cried out in her pangs of birth, in anguish for delivery. And another portent appeared in heaven; behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems upon his heads. His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to bear a child, that he might devour her child when she brought it forth; she brought forth a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne, and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which to be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days." (Rv. 11:19-12:6)

"And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman who brought forth the man child. And there were given to the woman two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the desert, unto her place, where she is nourished for a time and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth, after the woman, water, as it were a river: that he might cause her to be carried away by the river. And the earth helped the woman: and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon cast out of his mouth."  (Rv. 12:13-16)

(NB: the Greek word eremos (which means 'wilderness' or 'desert') was used in both instances above, but the translator chose to use 'wilderness' in one place and 'desert' in another.


It is a fact that the authors of the books of the Bible did not break their writings into chapters. This is a convention added by the Church centuries ago to aid in reference. Hence, we can gain greater insight as to the meaning of the word 'woman' by taking this into consideration in reading the last verse of Revelation 11 together with Revelation 12.

The Blessed Virgin Mary is the 'New Ark of the Covenant' as we shall discuss in greater detail below. While the Old Testament ark of the covenant carried the written word of God; for nine months, the Blessed Virgin carried the Incarnate Word (Jn 1:1-14).

The Old Testament ark of the covenant remains on earth hidden (2 Mc 2:5). It can not possibly be in Heaven. Whereas, the New Ark of the Covenant was assumed body and soul into Heaven. Therefore, the Ark of the Covenant that St. John saw in Heaven had to be the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God.

Furthermore, the Mother of God has appeared with a crown of stars, and clothed with the sun and with the moon at her feet (e.g. Our Lady of Guadalupe - image below).

We have additional assurance that the above passage refers to the Blessed Virgin in that it states "she brought forth a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne". Psalm 2:9 confirms that the phrase, "rules with a rod of iron", refers to Jesus. Additional confirmation is provided in the verbiage, "but her child was caught up to God and to his throne". This can be no other than Jesus, the Son of God.

Lastly, note that the woman wears a crown. Which type of women wear crowns? Queens and Queen Mothers. In the Davidic kingdoms of the Old Testament, the Queen Mother was the mother of the King. The principal role of the Queen Mother was to serve as advocate or intercessor on behalf of the people of Israel to her son the King. (Refer to 1 Kgs 2:19-20)

The Tribulation is to last 'a week of years' (Dn 9:26-27). The last half, or roughly 3 1/2 years, represents the duration of the Great Tribulation. 'Time, times and a half', and '1260 days' relate to such 3 1/2 years.


The late Fr. William G. Most was one of the world's premier theologians of our time. Fr. Most had this to say about the woman of Revelation 12:

In "Free From All Error: Authorship, Inerrancy, Historicity of Scripture, Church Teaching, and Modern Scripture Scholars Chapter 13: The Apocalyptic Books" he stated:

"Some features fit the Virgin Mary, Mother of God. The male child who rules with the iron scepter refers to Psalm 2:9, which speaks of Christ. The child is taken up to the throne of God. Other features fit the Church, and not Mary: the pain in childbirth.

St. Pius X (Ad diem illum, February 2, 1904: Acta Sanctae Sedis 36:458-459) wrote: "No one is ignorant of the fact that that woman signifies the Virgin Mary who, remaining a virgin, brought forth our Head... So John saw the most Holy Mother of God already enjoying eternal happiness, and yet laboring from some hidden birth. With what birth? Surely ours, we who, being yet detained in exile, are still to be brought forth to the perfect love of God and eternal happiness."

Paul VI, in Signum Magnum (May 13, 1967), wrote: "The great sign that the Apostle John saw in heaven, 'a woman clothed with the sun,' is interpreted by the sacred liturgy, not without foundation, as referring to the most blessed Mary, the mother of all men by the grace of Christ, the Redeemer."

Bernard J. Le Frois, S.V.D., in a remarkable study, The Woman Clothed with the Sun (Orbis Catholicus, Roma, 1954), suggests that we really have an established Semitic pattern in this passage, in which an individual stands for, and even embodies, a collectivity. Thus the woman would be Mary individually. She would stand for the Church. Le Frois further suggests that this could be a prophecy, that near the end the Church would take on a specially Marian character, resulting in a sort of age of Mary."

In "Mary in Our Life; Appendix IV: Mary in the Protoevangelium and Apocalypse" Fr. Most stated:

Arguments for the interpretation of both Mary and the Church.:

"Those who wish to see the woman as only the Church have been greatly moved by the problem of her pain in birth. We have solved this difficulty in the words of Saint Pius X. Yet we must admit that in the context of chapter 12 St. John does seem to have the Church in mind. Now the woman cannot be the Church alone, for the Church is in no sense the Mother of Christ. Nor could this last difficulty be solved by saying that the Church continues, the Jewish Church, and that the latter would be the Mother of Christ, for the Jewish Church persecuted both Christ and His Mystical Body.

The best solution is that proposed in an exhaustive exegetical study of Apoc. 12 by Bernard J. Le Frois, S.V.D. From an investigation of Semitic thought patterns, he finds that several times in Scripture, an individual stands for a collectivity, and the collectivity is embodied in the individual. Hence, in Apoc. 12, Mary would stand for the perfect realization of the Church.

Now if this double sense is true, then, since the vision seems to refer to the last days of the world, it might indicate that the Church toward the end is to take on a specially Marian character, in an age of Mary, as if Mary were again to bring her Son into the world (though not, of course, by human birth). St. Louis de Montfort prophesied that an age of Mary would precede the end-though he did not pretend to know if its length would be only a few years or some centuries. Our present Holy Father [ Pius XII ], in a private conversation, is reported to have said to the Director of the General Secretariate of all Sodalities in Rome, that we are now in the age of Mary."


The messages of Our Lady to Fr. Gobbi, as well as much other private prophecy confirm that Revelation 12 refers both to Mary, the Mother of God, and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary together with the remnant Church. Certain excerpts of relevant messages to Fr. Gobbi relating to this are presented below.

Consider the above citations and recall that I stated at the outset, that the refuge that I am associated with is (1) located in the countryside [or wilderness], (2) that we were told that we would be taken up on wings of eagles above the chaos and devastation, and (3) that the Blessed Virgin Mary would be given charge of the refuge while we resided there. .




"As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of man. They ate, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was in the days of Lot--they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built, but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom fire and sulphur rained from heaven and destroyed them all -- so will it be on the day when the Son of man is revealed. On that day, let him who is on the housetop, with his goods in the house, not come down to take them away; and likewise let him who is in the field not turn back. Remember Lot's wife. Whoever seeks to gain his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will preserve it. I tell you, in that night there will be two in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. There will be two women grinding together; one will be taken and the other left."

And they said to him, "Where, Lord?"

He said to them, "Where the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together." (Lk 17:26-34)



Based upon what we have covered thus far, where will the eagles gather at this time? In the wilderness. And who is going to be in charge in the wilderness? The Mother of God. How will we get there? Our guardian angels will lead us there, and we will be taken up on wings of eagles to get there. .



Father of the Church - Circa 300 A.D.


"Thus the earth shall be laid waste, as though by one common robbery. When these things shall so happen, then the righteous and the followers of truth shall separate themselves from the wicked, and flee into solitudes" .


St. Hippolytus

Father of the Church - Circa 200 A.D.


"Now, concerning the tribulation of the persecution which is to fall upon the Church from the adversary, John also speaks thus:

"And I saw a great and wondrous sign in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. And she, being with child, cries, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man-child, who is to rule all the nations: and the child was caught up unto God and to His throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath the place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. And then when the dragon saw it, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man-child"

"And the dragon," he says, "saw and persecuted the woman which brought forth the man-child. And to the woman were given two wings of the great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent."

That refers to the one thousand two hundred and threescore days (the half of the week) during which the tyrant is to reign and persecute the Church, which flees from city to city, and seeks concealment in the wilderness among the mountains, possessed of no other defense than the two wings of the great eagle, that is to say, the faith of Jesus Christ, who, in stretching forth His holy hands on the holy tree, unfolded two wings, the right and the left, and called to Him all who believed upon Him, and covered them as a hen her chickens. For by the mouth of Malachi also He speaks thus: "And unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings."  .


Other Passages From Holy Scripture


"I will pour out My spirit. And I will work wonders in the heavens, and on earth, blood, fire and columns of smoke; the sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, at the coming of the day of the LORD, the great and terrible day. Then everyone shall be rescued who calls on the name of the LORD; For on Mount Zion there shall be a remnant, as the LORD has said, and in Jerusalem survivors whom the LORD shall call."....(Jl 3:2-5)

"On that day, the remnant of Israel, the survivors of the house of Jacob, will no more lean upon him who struck them; but they will lean upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth a remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God. For though your people, O Israel, were like the sand of the sea, Only a remnant of them will return, their destruction is decreed as overwhelming justice demands. Yes, the destruction he has decreed, the Lord, the GOD of hosts, will carry out within the whole land. "...(Is 10:20-23).

"…Can a mother forget her infant, be without tenderness for the child of her womb? Even should she forget, I will never forget you.". ..(Is 49:15) .


On Eagles Wings

The Hymn


You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord,


who abide in His shadow for life,


say to the Lord: "My refuge, my rock in whom I trust."


and He will raise you up on Eagle's wings,


bear you on the breath of dawn,


make you to shine like the sun,


and hold you in the palm of His hand.


The snare of the fowler will never capture you,


and famine will bring you no fear: under His wings


your refuge, His faithfulness your shield.


You need not fear the terror of the night,


nor the arrow that flies by day;


though thousands fall about you,


near you it shall not come.


For to His angels He's given command


to guard you in all your ways;


upon their hands they will bear you up,


lest you dash your foot against a stone,


and hold you, hold you in the palm of His hand.




(Gather Comprehensive, Gia Publications, Chicago, Illinois USA)


While a hymn is hardly an authoritative reference, this one does appear to represent an interesting synthesis of Revelation 12, Psalm 91, Isaiah 40 and 2 Samuel 22 (each presented herein). .


Psalm 91


Psalm 91 describes God’s complete protection of His Faithful Remnant at that time. Jesus told our refuge group to read it.

"You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shadow of the Almighty, Say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.".

For he will rescue you from the snare of the fowler, from the destroying pestilence. With His pinions He will cover you, and under His wings you shall take refuge, His faithfulness is a buckler and a shield.

You shall not fear the terror of the night nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that roams in darkness, nor the devastating plague at noon.

Though a thousand fall at your side, ten thousand at your right side, near you it shall not come.

Rather with your eyes shall you behold and see the requital of the wicked. Because you have the LORD for your refuge you have made the Most High your stronghold.

No evil shall befall you, nor shall affliction come near your tent. For to His angels He has given command about you, that they guard you in all your ways. Upon their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.

You shall tread upon the asp and the viper; you shall trample down the lion and the dragon.".

"Because he clings to Me, I will deliver him. I will set him on high because he acknowledges My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in distress; I will deliver him and glorify him; with length of days I will gratify him and will show him My salvation.". .


Fr. Stefano Gobbi - Imprimaturs


The preeminent theme of Our Lady's messages to Fr. Gobbi (3) is our consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the resultant safe refuge of her Immaculate Heart now and during the Great Tribulation, and the Triumph of her Immaculate Heart. .At best the few excerpts below provide only a flavor of such theme.

Our Blessed Mother said:

#29 The Triumph of My Immaculate Heart

"In fact at the very moment when Satan will be enthroned as lord of the world and will think himself now the sure victor, I myself will snatch the prey from his hands. In a trice he will find himself empty-handed, and in the end the victory will be exclusively my Son's and mine. This will be the triumph of my Immaculate Heart in the world."….


#99 Consecrate Yourselves to My Immaculate Heart

"Consecrate yourselves to my Immaculate Heart.

To everyone who consecrates himself to me I again promise salvation: safety from error in this world and eternal salvation.

You will obtain this through my special motherly intervention. Thus, I will prevent you from falling into the enticements of Satan. You will be protected and defended by me personally; you will be consoled and strengthened by me."


#154 The Whole Church in My refuge - Nagasaki, Japan June 3, 1978

"What happened in this place could soon happen in every part of the world if my children do not accept my invitation to return to God…

Enter into my Immaculate Heart: it is the refuge which the Mother gives you. In it you will find all that I have prepared for you in order to pass through the terrible hours of purification through which you are now living.

The whole Church must now enter into my refuge: with the Pope, the bishops, the priests, and all the faithful.

It is for this reason that I am leading you to all parts of the world. The time has come when the small remnant, who will remain faithful and with whom Jesus will bring about the realization of His reign, must enter, in its entirety, into my Immaculate Heart.

Whoever does not enter into this refuge will be carried away by the great tempest which has already begun to rage."….


#175 The Woman Clothed with the Sun

"I have also prepared a refuge for you that you may be brought together, protected and strengthened during the present tempest which will become even more violent. The refuge is my Immaculate Heart.

I am now announcing to you that this is the time of the decisive battle. During these years, I myself am intervening, as the Woman Clothed with the Sun, in order to bring to fulfillment the triumph of my Immaculate Heart which I have already begun through you, my beloved sons."


#328 Ark of the New Covenant

"Enter into the refuge which your heavenly Mother has prepared for you, for your salvation and that you may be able to pass in safety, in my Immaculate Heart, the terrible days of the great tempest which is already at hand.

This is the moment for all to take refuge in me, because I am the Ark of the New Covenant.

At the time of Noah, immediately before the flood, those whom the Lord had destined to survive his terrible chastisement entered into the ark. In these your times, I am inviting all my beloved children to enter into the Ark of the New Covenant which I have built in my Immaculate Heart for you, that they may be assisted by me to carry the bloody burden of the great trial, which precedes the coming of the day of the Lord.

Do not look anywhere else. There is happening today what happened in the days of the flood, and no one is giving a thought to what is awaiting them. Everyone is much occupied in thinking only of themselves, of their own earthly interests, of pleasures and of satisfying in every sort of way, their own disordinate passions."


#410 The Mark on the Forehead and on the Hand

"If my Adversary is signing, with his mark, all his followers, the time has come when I also, your heavenly Leader, am signing, with my motherly seal, all those who have consecrated themselves to my Immaculate Heart and have formed part of my army.

I am imprinting my seal on your foreheads with the most holy sign of the Cross of my Son Jesus(4) . Thus I am opening the human intellect to receive his divine word, to love it, and to live it. I am leading you to entrust yourselves completely to Jesus who has revealed it to you. And I am making of you today courageous witnesses of faith. Against those signed on the forehead with the blasphemous mark, I am opposing my children signed with the Cross of Jesus Christ."


#458 The Great Sign in Heaven

"Look to me, beloved sons and you who are consecrated to me, in the great battle which you are fighting, under the orders of your heavenly Leader. I am the Woman Clothed with the Sun.

I am the great sign which appears in heaven."


#561 In My Safe Refuge

"Into my safe refuge, above all, all of you, my children, must enter that you may be protected and defended by me, now that you are entering into the conclusive period of the purification and the great tribulation".


#520 An Apocalyptic Message - May 13, 1994 (Anniversary of the First Apparition of Fatima)

My Immaculate Heart opens and causes rays of my motherly and merciful love to descend upon you. It is within your time that the fulfillment of the message is taking place, the message which I have given you at Fatima and against which my Adversary has thrown himself in fury, but which will now appear in all its extraordinary importance for the church and for all humanity.

It is an apocalyptic message.

It has regard to the end of the times.

It announces and prepares for the return of my Son Jesus in glory.

--- Upon this humanity which has again become pagan, enveloped in the coldness of the denial of God and of rebellion against his Law of love, corrupted by sin and evil, and over whom Satan reigns as a sure victor, I am causing the rays of love and of light from my Immaculate Heart to come down…

Thus my Immaculate Heart becomes today the sure means of salvation for all this humanity, because only in my Immaculate Heart will you find refuge in the moment of the chastisement, comfort in the hour of suffering, relief in the midst of unspeakable afflictions, light in the days of densest darkness, refreshment amidst the flames of the fire which consumes, confidence and hope in a now general despair.

--- Upon this Church, darkened and wounded, stricken and betrayed, I am causing the rays of love and of light from my Immaculate Heart to come down. When there will have entered into her the man of iniquity, who will bring to fulfillment the abomination of desolation which will reach its climax in the horrible sacrilege, as the great apostasy will have spread everywhere, then my Immaculate Heart will gather together the little faithful remnant which, in suffering, in prayer and in hope, will await the return of my Son Jesus in glory…

Mine is an apocalyptic message, because you are in the heart of that which has been announced to you in the last and so very important book of Sacred Scripture.

I entrust to the angels of light of my Immaculate Heart the task of bringing you to an understanding of these events, now that I have opened the sealed Book for you.".


#521 Come, Holy Spirit

"Come, Holy Spirit.

A new and universal effusion of the Holy Spirit is necessary to arrive at the new times, so longed for. It is necessary that the second Pentecost come quickly. It can come to pass only in the spiritual cenacle of my Immaculate Heart. For this reason, I renew today the invitation to all the Church to enter into the cenacle which the heavenly Mother has prepared for you for the final times. You are able to enter through the act of consecration to my Immaculate Heart.

I request that this consecration, asked by me with such anxious insistence, be made by the bishops, the priests, the religious and the faithful. And let it be made by all in order to shorten the time of the great trial which has now arrived."

…The triumph of my Immaculate Heart will coincide with the great prodigy of the second Pentecost.

A new fire will come down from heaven and will purify all humanity, which has again become pagan. It will be like a judgement in miniature, and each one will see himself in the light of the very truth of God."


#403 The Two Wings of the Great Eagle

"My beloved sons, today you are venerating me in a special way, on the first Saturday of this month of May, which is specially dedicated to me by you. You are gathered in cenacles of brotherly sharing and of prayer with your heavenly Mother.

How much comfort you give to my deep sorrow; how much joy you bring to my Immaculate Heart! Because, by means of you who have responded to me, devotion to me is now flourishing again in all the Church.

Thus I am able to exercise, in these times of yours, the great power which has been given to me by the Most Holy Trinity, to render harmless the attack which my Adversary, the Red Dragon, has unleashed against me, vomiting from his mouth a river of water to submerge me. The river of water is made up of the collection of all the new theological doctrines, which have sought to obscure the image of your heavenly Mother, to deny her privileges, to restructure devotion to her, and to cast ridicule upon all those who are devoted to her. Because of these attacks of the Dragon, in these years, piety toward me has steadily diminished among many of the Faithful and, in some places, has even disappeared.

But to the help of your heavenly Mother, there have come the two wings of the great eagle. The great eagle is the word of God, above all the word contained in the Gospel of my Son Jesus.

Of the four Gospels, the eagle indicates that of Saint John because he flies higher than all, enters into the very Heart of the Most Holy Trinity affirming with forcefulness the divinity, the eternity and the consubstantiality of the Word and the divinity of Jesus Christ.

The two wings of the eagle are the word of God, received, loved and kept with faith and the word of God lived with grace and charity. The two wings of faith and of charity -- that is to say, of the word of God received and lived by me -- permitted me to fly above the river of water of all the attacks made upon me, because they have manifested to the world my true greatness.

And then I sought a refuge for myself in the desert. The desert, in which I have made my habitual dwelling place, is made up of the hearts and the souls of all those children who receive me, who listen to me, who entrust themselves completely to me, who consecrate themselves to my Immaculate Heart. In the desert in which I find myself, I am working today my greatest prodigies. I am working them in the heart and in the soul, that is to say, in the life of all my littlest children. Thus I am leading them to follow me along the road of faith and of charity, bringing them to receive, to love and to keep the word of God and helping them to live each day with consistency and courage.

In silence and in hiddenness, that is to say, in the desert in which I find myself, I am working forcefully that my children consecrated to me believe today in the Gospel, let themselves be guided only by the wisdom of the Gospel, be ever the Gospel lived out.

This is the task which I have prepared for the army which I have formed for myself in every part of the world, with my Marian Movement of Priests: to let themselves be carried with me on the two wings of the great eagle, namely of faith and of charity, receiving with love and living solely, in these times of yours, the word of God.

The great prodigies which I am accomplishing today, in the desert in which I find myself, are those of transforming completely the life of my little children, that they may become courageous witness of faith and luminous examples of holiness.

In this way, in silence and in hiddenness, each day I am preparing my great victory over the Dragon, in the triumph of my Immaculate Heart in the world." .


The Enigma Solved


As I worked on this writing, everything seemed to fall into place nicely. That which Our Lord had told our refuge group, Holy Scripture, the teachings of the Fathers, it all fit so well. Then I read Fr. Gobbi's message #403, and it threw me. (At that time I had not reread and posted the other messages excerpted in the section above on Fr. Gobbi.)

I had every reason to believe both points of view about the wings of eagles. I have witnessed and experienced mystical occurrences regarding the refuge that we have been asked to build for Our Lord, and Our Lord had personally given me several of Fr. Gobbi's messages to write about before. Every attempt at understanding the two points of view, and reconciling them, left me disquieted.

At one of our weekly prayer meetings, I prayed to Our Lord and asked Him to please help me solve the enigma. Through the visionary (5) friend of mine who conducts our prayer meeting, He responded as follows. (NB: as I discussed in my testimony, Our Lord provides things to me to write about in many different ways. In it, I compared the preparation of these writings, to the solving of a jig-saw puzzle. After feeling a sense of completion, I then pray for His authorization to publish. Further, I had not revealed the nature of the writing that Our Lord had me preparing at the time, to either of my friends discussed below.):

Our Lord told me to read Genesis 7:23, which reads:

The Lord wiped out every living thing on earth: man and cattle, the creeping things and the birds of the air; all were wiped out from the earth. Only Noah and those with him in the ark were left. ……………….(Gn 7:23)

Then my friend was given a vision. In the background flashing were scenes of the war in Israel. While the various scenes changed in the background, in the foreground was a black silhouette of a phoenix rising, with its head turned to our left. (Among other things the phoenix is a Masonic symbol. Other private prophecy has stated that the strife in the Middle East is being orchestrated by the Freemasons to create chaos, and thus facilitate the rise of the Antichrist.).

Next, she saw a vision of Our Lady of Guadalupe clothed with the sun in the sky.

Then my friend was directed to Revelation 12, and the last few verses of Revelation 11. (You will recall that in Chapter 11, St. John writes of seeing the ark in the heavens, which I had not considered.).

Next, Our Lord told me when working on these writings, to light a candle, and to pray to St. Joan of Arc for help.

Lastly, He told us to contact another mutual visionary friend, and inquire whether "she had received any messages".

That was it, nothing more.

I contacted our other visionary (6) friend and without revealing the nature of this writing to her, her diary had the following entry in it regarding a vision that she had received a few months ago:

"Right now as I am writing this I got a flash of people running, running away from a city or town or something -- also the words: 'He will mount you up on eagles wings'".


Armed with this added information, and after much prayer I present the following for your consideration in reconciling the two points of view regarding the meaning of 'on wings of eagles', and the progression of the Old Testament types, and New Testament antitypes (7) :


In the days of Noah, the people had rejected God, and became depraved (Gn 6:5). God sent a chastisement to purify the world of evil (Gn 6:13).

Noah's ark completely protected God's faithful people and the animals from His Divine Justice against the evil people of the world. In God's plan, the animals necessary to repopulate the Earth after the devastation were on board the ark, as well (Gen. 7:23).


The Ark of the Covenant contained: the written word of God on the tablets of the covenant; the rod of Aaron, High Priest of Israel ……..(Ex 30:30); and the golden urn containing manna, the bread that descended from Heaven (Heb 9:4).

As they traversed the countryside, God removed all obstacles in the path of the priests who carried the ark and the accompanying faithful Israelites devoted to it (Jos. 3:13-17).

Jeremiah buried the Ark of the Covenant in a cave where it is hidden and fully-protected (2 Mc 2:5).


The New Ark of the Covenant, which is the Blessed Virgin Mary, carried within her womb, the Incarnate Word of God (Jn 1:1-14) and the New and Everlasting Covenant (Heb 13:20).

Jesus is the High Priest of God (Hebrews; esp. Heb 5:5). Jesus rules the world with a rod of iron (Ps 2:9; Rv 12:5).

Jesus, in the Holy Eucharist, is the bread of life that descended from Heaven (Jn 6:48-51).

Through His immolation and death on the cross, Jesus saved mankind from the Father's Divine justice of eternal damnation for our sins (Rom 5:8-21).


The Immaculate Heart of Mary is our safe refuge during the Great Tribulation. We enter into this refuge, by making the consecration to her Immaculate Heart. At such time we are given a seal on our foreheads, the Cross of Jesus Christ. Those who do not make the consecration, do not receive a seal, and will suffer (Fr. Gobbi and Ez 9:5; Rv 7:3 and Rv 9:3-5).


With a river or torrent of new theoretical doctrines, evil men have tried to malign Our Lady and her role as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate; and also her perpetual virginity and her Immaculate Conception. Those devoted to her, are ridiculed as fanatics and heretics (Rv 12:15 & Fr. Gobbi 403).

Thus, these evil men stifle devotion to, and consecration to, her Immaculate Heart. If Satan can destroy the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the minds of some, then he destroys the Immaculate Heart of Mary in their minds, as well. If he does that, he destroys their safe refuge during the Tribulation, as those who make the consecration to her Immaculate Heart are promised safe refuge during the Tribulation (Fr. Gobbi 99).


Also, those who make the consecration, will be protected, defended, consoled and strengthened by the Immaculate Heart of Mary (Fr. Gobbi 99). She will lead them to follow her along the road of faith and of charity, bringing them to receive, to love and to keep the word of God and helping them to live each day with consistency and courage …. (Fr. Gobbi 403).


At the appropriate time, those consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be summoned by their respective Guardian Angels to flee to the refuges located in the countryside. (Mt 24:15-22; Lk 17:26-34 & Ex 23:20-22). This is how the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be realized (Fr. Gobbi 29).

Our Lord will take us up on Wings of Eagles over the chaos, and devastation to the physical refuges in the wilderness. God will remove all obstacles in our paths along the way. As we flee to the refuges, God will give us the ability to flee swiftly like deer without tiring. (Rv 12:14; Ps 91; 2 Sm 22; Is 40:3-31).

At the refuges, all of our needs will be cared for by Our Lord. We will reside in caves for shelter, hidden and fully-protected together with the New Ark of the Covenant, Our Lady (Ps 91; Is 40:3-31). She will be in charge of the refuges.

While we reside there, fully-protected by the grace of God during the Great Tribulation, Our Heavenly Father's justice is carried out upon the wicked of the world. These evil people and the world will be destroyed, and purified (Rv 13 through18).

Only the faithful remnant that reside within the New Ark of the Covenant and their animals will be saved (Fr. Gobbi).

And she will have crushed his head (8) ..(Gn. 3:15).


Note: According to certain private prophecy, we will be called by our guardian angels to the refuges in advance of the Great Chastisement. After the appropriate period of time to allow for safety due to nuclear radiation, we will leave the refuges. Shortly thereafter, the Great Tribulation will increase, and then we will be called by our guardian angels back to the refuges. For simplicity sake the above chart does not contemplate this.


2 Samuel


Shortly, after the above mentioned prayer meeting, the first visionary friend of mine was reflecting upon her picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe. She was moved by how the moon in the picture resembled horns. She felt in her heart that I should run an electronic search on the word "horn" in the Bible, and further she recommended that I run such search on the books of Deuteronomy or Samuel. (Remember the hymn?)

2 Samuel 22 reads as follows:

"The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge, my savior; thou savest me from violence.

I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.

"For the waves of death encompassed me, the torrents of perdition assailed me; the cords of Sheol entangled me, the snares of death confronted me. "In my distress I called upon the LORD; to my God I called. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry came to his ears.

"Then the earth reeled and rocked; the foundations of the heavens trembled and quaked, because he was angry. Smoke went up from his nostrils, and devouring fire from his mouth; glowing coals flamed forth from him. He bowed the heavens, and came down; thick darkness was under his feet. He rode on a cherub, and flew; he was seen upon the wings of the wind. He made darkness around him his canopy, thick clouds, a gathering of water. Out of the brightness before him coals of fire flamed forth. The LORD thundered from heaven, and the Most High uttered his voice. And he sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and routed them. Then the channels of the sea were seen, the foundations of the world were laid bare, at the rebuke of the LORD, at the blast of the breath of his nostrils.

"He reached from on high, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.

He delivered me from my strong enemy, from those who hated me; for they were too mighty for me. They came upon me in the day of my calamity; but the LORD was my stay. He brought me forth into a broad place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.

"The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands he recompensed me. For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God. For all his ordinances were before me, and from his statutes I did not turn aside.

I was blameless before him, and I kept myself from guilt. Therefore the LORD has recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to my cleanness in his sight.

"With the loyal thou dost show thyself loyal; with the blameless man thou dost show thyself blameless; with the pure thou dost show thyself pure, and with the crooked thou dost show thyself perverse. Thou dost deliver a humble people, but thy eyes are upon the haughty to bring them down.

Yea, thou art my lamp, O LORD, and my God lightens my darkness. Yea, by thee I can crush a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall. This God--his way is perfect; the promise of the LORD proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.

"For who is God, but the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God?

This God is my strong refuge, and has made my way safe. He made my feet like hinds' feet [i.e. the feet of a doe or female deer], and set me secure on the heights. He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. Thou hast given me the shield of thy salvation, and thy help made me great. Thou didst give a wide place for my steps under me, and my feet did not slip; I pursued my enemies and destroyed them, and did not turn back until they were consumed. I consumed them; I thrust them through, so that they did not rise; they fell under my feet.

For thou didst gird me with strength for the battle; thou didst make my assailants sink under me. Thou didst make my enemies turn their backs to me, those who hated me, and I destroyed them. They looked, but there was none to save; they cried to the LORD, but he did not answer them. I beat them fine as the dust of the earth, I crushed them and stamped them down like the mire of the streets.

"Thou didst deliver me from strife with the peoples; thou didst keep me as the head of the nations; people whom I had not known served me. Foreigners came cringing to me; as soon as they heard of me, they obeyed me. Foreigners lost heart, and came trembling out of their fastnesses.

"The LORD lives; and blessed be my rock, and exalted be my God, the rock of my salvation, the God who gave me vengeance and brought down peoples under me, who brought me out from my enemies; thou didst exalt me above my adversaries, thou didst deliver me from men of violence.

"For this I will extol thee, O LORD, among the nations, and sing praises to thy name. (2 Samuel 22:2-50)



One might ask: "Has anything like this ever happened in Biblical history that will assure us that Our Lord will rescue us from danger, and provide for our needs subsequently?"

As an answer to this question, please consider the following citation from Exodus:




"On the third new moon after the people of Israel had gone forth out of the land of Egypt, on that day they came into the wilderness of Sinai. And when they set out from Reph'idim and came into the wilderness of Sinai, they encamped in the wilderness; and there Israel encamped before the mountain.

And Moses went up to God, and the LORD called to him out of the mountain, saying, 'Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the people of Israel: You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles' wings and brought you to myself.'" (Ex 191-4)




As we mentioned above, much has been provided about the times to come, and how we should prepare. The following excerpts from the private prophets below only provide a flavor of what has been said. We encourage you to read their archived messages at their respective web sites, the URL's of which are provided in the Footnotes below. .


Carol Ameche


During July, 1998 the world was warned of impending nuclear war by yearend through Carol Ameche (9) . We were told to gather food, clothing and supplies to flee to the refuges at a moments notice by our respective guardian angels in advance of nuclear attacks. Through Carol, He has stated, that food, supplies and clothing will be miraculously multiplied when those consecrated to the Immaculate Heart are called by their guardian angels to evacuate in advance of the Great Chastisement (nuclear). A "nuclear winter" resulting from the combined nuclear fallout blocking out the sun is to follow, and all are encouraged to bring warm clothing to sustain extremely cold weather. Jesus said that we are to prepare now, and set your clothes and supplies to the side ready to leave at a moment's notice. Your sacramentals will provide heat and light. Note: Those that share their food, supplies and clothing will have it multiplied; those who hoard it will have it consumed. It will be as in the days of Elijah (2) .

Food, supplies and clothing will be miraculously provided when those consecrated to the Immaculate Heart are called later by their guardian angels into hiding at the time of the persecution of Christians within the Great Tribulation.

On October 19, 1998 (NB: prior to the end of the year), and again on January 3 and 4, 1999, and again on April 7, 2000 Our Lord told us through Carol, that as a result of our prayers and fasting, and the prayers of Our Blessed Mother, Our Heavenly Father had delayed the impending nuclear bombing. Our Lord hastened to add that the threat has been delayed, and not eliminated. It continues to be a real threat, as of this writing.

The power of prayer is incomprehensible, as the extent of the Father's Mercy is incomprehensible.

Jesus warned us to keep some food, supplies and clothing gathered ready to leave at any time. My family's backpacks continue to be packed. 

In an effort to preserve the meaning and impetus of the following excerpts of Carol's messages, we present them in chronological order beginning with July 1998.


July 13, 1998

Mary said: "…Dear ones, be firm in your conviction of the need to prepare to leave your houses at any moment. When I say there will be nuclear war before the year is over, I mean the powers of the world will attempt to destroy smaller and less well-defended nations BEFORE THIS YEAR ENDS!!!

Once a strike occurs, the retaliation will be automatic, and occur according to plans already agreed upon by leaders of major powers.

You are being given explicit information by Heaven, at this time through the words of your Mother Of All People. I am that Mother, who calls to all to repent and come back to your God; to prepare for the eventuality of nuclear destruction in almost EVERY country in the world.

Terrorists are people without the means of caring for others, who are driven by a depth of hatred unknown to most other people in the world.

The events will happen so rapidly that if you do not move immediately and quickly, you may be caught by the death-dealing weapons that are involved in these attacks…

Realize that We come to you everywhere with special graces and whisperings of love and caution, begging you to HEED THE WARNINGS that will precede the time when each person in the world will see their sins, their weaknesses, their selfishness and pride!

…LISTEN to Our messengers as they share Our words, and PLAN TO BE READY TO LEAVE IN AN INSTANT.    

You have NO idea of the degree of devastation and injury which occurs as a result of these weapons of such terrible destruction…

Be sure of this: when the devastation begins and the Warning occurs, many will come seeking your forgiveness for their doubt and their own hard hearts.


August 2, 1998



August 22, 1998

Jesus said: "Please tell Our people tomorrow that they must act in great haste now, as evil people around the world set into motion the plans to begin a nuclear holocaust! This is information being given by the great Mercy of My Father. As each one hears Our words, pray first that they will be filled with Our Spirit of trust and acceptance of the Truth.

I repeat, those who do not take steps to follow Our call and leave when they are instructed, will perish!

Each one is free to make a choice. Unfortunately, many will choose to stubbornly refuse to comply with Our requests and will not survive this tremendous nuclear attack planned to annihilate so much of the world…

Do NOT argue, My people, or defend your own beliefs in these words. Hurry to gather belongings and foodstuffs and water necessary to sustain you for many weeks. Pray that as many as possible will accept this advice and hurry to prepare to depart…

I repeat, hasten to gather what you can, and prepare to leave at any moment!

It is unbelievable how many will hear and believe, yet NOT act upon these messages of increased intensity. Pray, My people, that you will be strong enough to act upon your own convictions and come away when you are summoned to leave for safety from the effects of nuclear fallout. THIS IS A REAL THREAT, A GREATER POSSIBILITY THAN EVER.

Do not delay, dearest ones, but begin this moment upon returning to your homes to gather in earnest all you would need to survive away from your homes for this brief period of time. . I remind you to gather whatever you can, and I will take care of the rest, but do not be lazy or unmoved by the serious need to act now to gather whatever you have, or can acquire, in response to My pleading.

I am your Jesus of Mercy, Who sends words of Love to you in an attempt to save lives from the terrible effects of radiation…


August 31, 1998

Jesus said: "…My people, WAKE up! Please, GET up!! Go to a closet. Look INTENTLY at the contents. What is there that you might use in a situation away from the house and hiding from nuclear fallout?

Go to your KITCHEN and LOOK AROUND. What do you SEE? What might you wish to take with you for a period of time away from your store of food and cooking utensils?

Walk into your BEDROOMS and see what is there that you use every day. SEE what you are looking at, My people, My dear ‘wooden-heads'!! Allow yourselves to be touched, awakened, alerted to danger by My words.

HEAR what I am telling you, people. ACT upon the directions I give you now. Be filled with a spirit of ADVENTURE and EXCITEMENT. TRAVEL with My Mother and Myself in the company of Our beloved Joseph, who led Us away from the danger of Herod's men.

Today, the SPIRIT OF DESTRUCTION IS AGAIN ON THE MARCH! Even more powerful and destructive weapons are in the hands of maniacal minds that do not think of all of you as something to be valued, but as objects of their great, great hatred.

Please BELIEVE My words, beloved ones. MOVE QUICKLY to get ready for My call to you to depart. I and My Mother, the Angels and Saints continually pray before the Father's Throne that you will be convinced of the need to respond to these requests before it is too late to escape the effects of terrible suffering.

Do not imagine that you can imagine what this will be like, My dear ones! You must be obedient to My call, and prepare in order to be saved and fight by My side against the terrible forces of the Anti-Christ, who is renewed daily by Satan himself!

If you believe and are preparing, My dear, dear ones, pray for those who choose not to accept the truth of these warnings. Do not believe the evil whisperings of Satan's demons that attempt to distract you and dilute your focus, your strength…




September 21, 1998

Mary said: "…YOU WHO ARE BEING OBEDIENT HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR. I ask you to pray for your brothers and sisters in Christ who will not choose to be obedient and leave their homes in order to avoid nuclear fallout or actual devastation…"


October 19, 1998

Jesus said: "…THE ANTI-CHRIST WAITS IN THE WINGS OF HISTORY! His evil plans are ready to be deployed by his followers. Evil will have its day, and the innocent along with the guilty will suffer the results of his hatred and dreadful plans.

War has been narrowly averted for the moment, daughter. The plans of My Father to interfere with the plans of Satan have stayed the moment of destruction for a small while, once again. Be grateful for this last second reprieve before Hell is loosed upon the Earth, first through war and death at the hands of the sons of evil, then at the hands of Satan himself and all his demons..

Be filled with peace and patience for the moment when the Father's hand falls and allows Satan to proceed with all of his well-laid plans to conquer the world with his greatest ally, the Anti-Christ.

As the days go by, it is more urgent than EVER for each one to finish the task of gathering food and clothing and supplies! …"


December 29, 1998

Mary said: "… All of Our children will know the results of their choices as they see the state of their souls, and the condition of mind and body, after nuclear attacks are aimed at this country…

I am so pleased and grateful to all my children who have remained faithful, and continue to pray for Mercy on the world, and prepare to follow their Angels to a place of safety from nuclear destruction and fallout.



January 4, 1999

Jesus then said: "Daughter, it is I, your Lord Jesus Christ, King and Spouse to you. All those who listen to Our words wait for the next words of explanation Heaven has to give. THERE IS NO EXPLANATION, SAVE THE MERCY OF THE FATHER OF US ALL! When you pray for mitigation of war and nuclear destruction, My people, and for Mercy on the world, you should realize that this is the reaction and response the Father waits for! He must have your prayers, your sacrifices, your sincere love and fasting. When you comply with HIS requests, He is then able to choose to comply with YOUR requests!!

My Father Loves His people and is deeply moved when you, His faithful ones, pray in love and concern for the salvation of the world, for true peace and Mercy to be given.

I have told you before, dear ones of My Heart, these events cannot be removed completely, but are, and can continue to be, lessened in severity and incidence. He is showing you the MIGHTY RESULTS OF YOUR PRAYERS in order to convince and encourage you to persist in your prayerful pleadings to Him.  .


John Leary


October 10, 2002 (10)

Jesus said: "My people, today’s Gospel says ‘Ask and you shall receive.’ This is My promise to you, so when you need help, do not forget to call on My Name. When the evil of your age gets worse, you will be needing My help because you will not make it on your own. I have told you in the past when you see a world famine with people killing over food; a schism in My Church; and mandatory chips in the hand being forced on people, then call on Me and I will send your guardian angel to guide you to a safe haven. There will be interim refuges at first for immediate help. Then you will be drawn to final refuges of My Blessed Mother’s apparition sites, places of holy ground, or caves. It is those, who stay behind in their homes or other places, that could be caught and possibly martyred. So do not be stubborn about waiting too long to leave or you may face capture by the evil ones."


May 11, 2002

Jesus said: "At these refuges there will be a white luminous cross overhead that will heal all diseases for those who look on this cross. There will also be an angel of protection at each refuge who will also feed you My heavenly manna. Water will also be at these refuges and My angels and the crosses will remain throughout the tribulation. I will provide for all of My faithful’s needs in miraculous ways as I protected and provided for My people in the Exodus."


May 1, 2002

Jesus said: "My people, you are seeing the first stage of people volunteering to take the chip in their hand. I have told you in the past that smart cards were the forerunner of taking chips in the hand. I also said that people would initially volunteer to take the chip in the hand. The second stage would be a secret forcing of people to take chips in the hand or they would be taken to detention camps. At these camps some would be martyred, tortured, or enslaved. All of those without the chip would be outlaws. The terrorists' actions will precipitate national ID cards and eventually mandatory chips in the hand or face imprisonment. This stage of forced chips, a schism in My Church, and world famine would be the time to have your guardian angels guide you to the nearest refuge. This time of tribulation was thought by some to be far off, but as events are unfolding, these chips have become a reality and their being forced on people is a near possibility. You have been warned not to be at your home when the one world agents come to force the chip on you. I am warning you now more than ever to have your backpacks ready to take off in a relative short time because the one world people are close to a push for world takeover.    Some have not wanted to believe that they are in the end times or that chips in the hand would even happen, but the reality of today's events are right before you. Pray for My help in these days for I am the only one to protect your soul from the evil ones."


October 3, 2001

Jesus said: "My people, this vision is a god of the dark side with its source rooted in Egypt. Just as I came out of Egypt to go back to Israel, so the Antichrist will come out of Egypt on his road to his public ministry that was intended for three or more years. I will shorten this time of trial for the sake of My elect, but be aware of this evil one who soon will be announcing his coming into power. Evil will have its reign for a short time, but you can call on Me for protection. It is to avoid the influence of the Antichrist's demonic powers that I am having My angels guide you to places of refuge for protection. These evil ones will want to kill My faithful to eliminate My Church on earth, but the gates of hell will not prevail over My remnant Church. Trust in Me during this age of apostasy because your salvation and protection depend on Me only. Rejoice that when you see the Antichrist announce his reign, then know that My victory over all evil is near. It is like Scripture says, you will not travel through the towns of Israel before I will come in glory."

( . NB: We know that the Antichrist will falsely claim to be the Christ. As such, he will have to appear to satisfy Old Testament Prophecy. Hoseah prophesied: "When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son." (Hos. 11:1) (Also, see Mt. 2:13-20) -- On October 5, 2001, Jesus enhanced the above prophecy by telling John Leary that "the Antichrist is an Arab and a religious leader". Additionally, through Our Lady of La Salette we have been told that the Antichrist will make Rome his seat.)


September 27, 2001

Jesus said: "My people, I have told you to prepare food, water, and fuel for the coming tribulation. Once events move to forcing chips in the hand, you will be called to seek your refuges by following your guardian angels. Have no fear of these difficult times because I will provide for your protection and your needs. You will have to place your full trust in Me just as the Israelites did in the Exodus. Call on My help and I will answer your prayer with miracles beyond your comprehension. I am allowing this test of your faith, but I will soon come in triumph to vanquish all of these evil ones."


September 1, 2001

Jesus said: "My people, man has prided himself on all of his structures and cities, but as I condemned Jerusalem, so I will condemn those cities that worship money and other gods. You have had many people get rich on the stock market, but now the market is down and these same people are still expecting a recovery. You will see a coming world depression that will humble all of the rich and people will be fighting to eat and survive. The evil people will see everything taken from them and jobs will be hard to find. My faithful will also be stripped of their wealth, but I will feed and protect you at My refuges. Those, who have set food aside for the tribulation, will have it multiplied for those who are with them. I will also multiply your fuel so you will remain warm in the cold months(2). Have faith in Me and My prophecies and your souls will be saved. My faithful will suffer much persecution from the Antichrist, but in the end I will triumph and your beautiful cities will be nothing but rubble."


August 31, 2001

Jesus said: "My people, as you hear this Gospel reading of the five wise virgins and the five foolish virgins, think of preparing for the end days both spiritually and physically. This vision of several jars of food is not speaking of large volumes of food to have on hand, but only something extra that could be multiplied for a time. The most important preparation for your judgment is to have your soul free from sin and to have your blessed sacramentals for protection from the evil ones. As the world finances and food supplies begin to deteriorate, life will get very chaotic and you will need faith and trust in Me in many life threatening situations. In all of your preparations it is better to leave your home than to use weapons to protect your food and possessions. The worldly fight over these things, but you must be an example of love even amidst those struggling to survive. Do not be in any panic for your life, but be willing to give up your life for your faith in Me. I will look after you at My refuges, but saving your souls is more important than saving your earthly lives. Encourage people to love Me and keep their souls pure by frequent Confession. Focus on preserving your spiritual life, for this will keep you on track to your eternal destination in heaven."


August 21, 2001

Jesus said: "My people, many people are wondering how I will protect them from the evil ones at the time of tribulation. When you have to go into hiding from the Antichrist, I will have your guardian angels lead you to the nearest safe haven of protection. My angels will make clear paths for you even in this swampland where others could get lost. As in today's Gospel, I told My disciples that a rich man would find it hard to be saved even as hard as placing a camel through the eye of a needle of a four foot square. When they were confused about who could be saved, I told them for man it seems impossible, but for God all things are possible. In the same way it may seem impossible to hide from the Antichrist and his agents, but My miracles will blind them and eventually destroy them. Trust in Me to defeat your enemies as I fought for Israel. Just when all will seem hopeless, you will see My angels protect you and provide food, water, and shelter for My faithful. You will have to trust in Me for everything because everything will be stripped from you. It is when you accept Me in faith that I will know your belief in Me is true and sincere. Be patient in this trial for a short time and I will raise you up into a lasting rest with Me."


August 11, 2001

Jesus said: "My people, My angels will lead you on your way to a place of refuge as the tribulation begins. I have talked to you about interim refuges on the way to your final destination. Your guardian angels will discern for you which houses are friendly to you when you are being pursued by the Antichrist's agents. The people in these interim refuges will take you in to hide you from the authorities and they will be risking their lives to do so. My faithful will share their faith and their healing power with those that you meet along your path into hiding. You will see souls converted in your fleeing, for you will be able to emphasize the dangers of taking the chip in the body. At each place that you stop, pray for the people's souls there and pray to Me and I will multiply their food to help more travelers. Some people may not have to leave their homes immediately because they will be acting as interim refuges to help others in their flight to safety. Have faith and trust in Me to find you places to stay on your way to your final place of refuge."


August 4, 2001

Jesus said: "My people, when you go into hiding during the tribulation, I will have My angels lead you to the closest refuge of protection. I will make it so those searching for you will not be able to see you even with their infra red night scopes. Their dogs will not be able to track you. Even when they know the places of refuge, these smart troops will not be able to sense your presence in any way. These proud soldiers will be humbled by My miracles as the soldiers were humbled at My Resurrection. Have trust in Me that I will do the impossible for you in protecting you and feeding you. The evil ones will be frustrated that they cannot harm you. Then once the Antichrist comes to full power, I will send My comet of destruction and My triumph will be complete over Satan, the Antichrist and all of his agents…"


 July 30, 2001

Jesus said: ."My people, I have advised you before to have some bicycles ready that you may have to use when you go into hiding. You will need some safety helmets, so you are not stopped. You will see gasoline shortages again as wars in the Mideast will threaten your oil supplies. Even more so as you approach the time of the Antichrist, you will not have his chip which will be needed to buy the gasoline. Without fuel your bicycles may be your best means of transportation on back roads and dirt roads. It will be difficult to bring much with you, so you will only have room for what you can carry. Preparing yourself spiritually is most important for this trial which you will have to endure. By prayer, fasting and Confession, you can both prepare your soul and your body to go into hiding away from the Antichrist’s influence. Be patient for a little while and you will have your reward when My triumph will vanquish all of these evil ones."


May 9, 2001

Jesus said: "My people, for those, who are led to caves for a refuge during the tribulation, you will be hidden in the ground as I had to wait three days in the tomb. Death had no hold on Me, but Scripture had to be fulfilled that I would rise three days later. Again the days of the Antichrist are foretold as less than the three and one-half years for the sake of My elect. Even though you will be tested, death will have no hold on My faithful who will not be martyred. All men are appointed to die once, but My protection will be there in My angels to guard you from the evil."


April 3, 2001

Jesus said: "My people, I am showing you an example of a refuge at a shrine of My Blessed Mother during the tribulation. Some may wonder how it is possible to feed and shelter My faithful when the Antichrist will have weapons and means to search for you. Remember that with Me, all things are possible. I will permit some of My faithful to be martyred for their faith, but I will also have My angels protect those at My refuges. The angels will provide you My heavenly Manna as I provided manna in the desert. They will also keep the evil ones from seeing you or harming you. This will be a miracle of My protection as in the Exodus. During the tribulation, you will see a modern day Exodus from the cities to My Blessed Mothers’ places of apparition and the places of holy ground. Your diseases and epidemics will be healed at My white luminous crosses and water, food, and shelter will be miraculously provided. Have trust and hope in My help because I will not leave you orphans in your distress. Fear not the evil ones, for you will see the glory of My victory as they will quickly be vanquished."  .

Louise now receives a vision: "I even see fires around the country. I see floods. I see a lot of major cities, they're not anymore. They're being either burnt or flooded out, or bombed out. I see The Lord's refuges standing loud and clear and bright, but people can't see them, they don't know where they are. They're right in front of their noses, but they can't see them.

Jesus said: Not everyone will have to go into caves, for not everyone can travel that far. For many are crippled, some in body, that is their limbs are crippled, but others are crippled because of diseases and they can't go. Then I will make those refuges if you want your place to be a refuge, then obey Me, and have that house consecrated to Me by a priest. A good priest! Have that home blessed. Have your property blessed. And bless your cars. Bless everything in My Name, and you will be safe. Do not obey Me, and you will pay for it…"



Read the account in Acts of the Apostles where St. Peter was freed by the angel without being detected by guards that were present at the time. So it shall be when you are called into hiding. A few years ago, a US pilot was shot down over Bosnia, and he survived without being detected Later he told the American press that enemy troops walked within a few feet of him while he was poorly hidden in some bushes, and surprisingly he remained undetected.

He said that he was praying the rosary at the time.

Note: Sadly, some people who have made the consecrations will not respond when their guardian angels appear to them when it is time to leave.

Additionally, the agents of the Antichrist will not be able to detect the locations of the refuges no matter how hard they try. On a number of occasions Soviet pilots were given orders to bomb St. James church in Medjugorje Yugoslavia during the 1980’s, but could not locate it from the air using sophisticated equipment.

When to Flee to the Refuges

Jesus told us through John Leary and Louise Tomkiel that we should call upon His Name when we see (1) a world famine; (2) schism (division) in the Catholic Church; (3) mandatory subdermal micro computer chips in the body; (4) mandatory vaccines for a pandemic virus; and (5) martial law.  Also, we should call upon Jesus’ Name: (6) upon the failure of the economy of the USA & its bankruptcy; (7) when the North American Union (merging of Canada, USA & Mexico) takes place; (8) when the Antichrist declares himself; (9) when people start dying in large numbers from pandemic disease; (10) when riots for food begin; (11) when we see  men in black trying to take captives in the USA; (12) upon religious persecution; (13) when they threaten to kill Christians; and (14) at the beginning of the Tribulation.  At such time, our guardian angels will lead us to the nearest refuge.  We will be invisible to evil men once we are underway traveling to the refuges and while residing there. (cf. Acts 12)

Through John Leary, Jesus asked us to prepare His priests for the forthcoming Tribulation by preparing them to flee to the refuges.  He told us to be prepared to help guide the priests with His help via prayer when He warns us that it is time to flee.

Once again, it is IMPERATIVE that we leave IMMEDIATELY upon being called by our guardian angel.  Those who fail to leave immediately, will be captured by evil men, taken to the death camps and martyred.



"The Lord knows how to rescue the Godly from trial, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment"

(2 Pt 2:9)


Remember, we have been told that as the forces of evil are allowed to increase, so too will the forces of good be allowed to increase!


We will witness the miraculous!


Let everyone know that the days of

Elijah are here !



In a message to Louise Tomkiel on August 26, 1999,

Jesus said: "The ship will sail at midnight." It will not dock in familiar waters but in a port where all is new, clean and peaceful. Make ready now for the hour of departure is at hand.

Only My own faithful Remnant will be able to understand and discern this statement."

Join us in making the consecrations, now……….We set sail soon.




Prepared with the grace of God
By Ben J. Verdina, May 2002 (edited September, 2016)


An Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary 

I, (your name), a faithless sinner-- renew and ratify today in thy hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism; I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before.

In the presence of all the heavenly court I choose thee this day, for my Mother and Mistress. I deliver and consecrate to thee, as thy slave, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past, present and future; leaving to thee the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to thy good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and in eternity. Amen.


An Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Abyss of Mercy and Source of every grace and blessing, I consecrate and unite myself to You without exception or reserve - all that I am and all that I have, both temporal and spiritual, past present and future, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, your Mother.

I leave myself entirely at Your disposal with complete confidence in Your Mercy and Love and I beg You to look upon this offering of my nothingness before You and to use me for Your own glory, for the honor of Your Mother and for the salvation of souls. Help me to seek You alone in all things. Hide me in the shelter of Your Most Sacred Heart and be my only Consolation and Refuge.

Grant me the graces I need to joyfully accept Your Cross daily, to lead a holy life and to die a holy death in Your service. Help me to trust completely in Your Mercy and Love and never to fear to humbly throw myself before the infinite Ocean of mercy which is Your Most Sacred Heart, especially at those times when I may fail in my faithfulness in Your service. Through this weak and miserable instrument, may Your Mercy, Love, glory and power shine forth. Above all, set my poor heart on fire with the Flame of Love which burns in Your Most Sacred Heart, and teach me how to return love for Love. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on me - for I place all my trust in You.


How To Save Your Children

During one of the cenacles which Fr. Gobbi held in the United States, he was urged by many concerned people to ask Our Lady specifically what could be done to save the youth from the seductions of the world which were leading many of them astray and causing them to leave the Church. Our Lady gave Fr. Gobbi this definite and final solution to console the parents who are so concerned about the salvation of their children:

Pray the Rosary !


Every time you pray the Rosary say: "With this Rosary I bind all my children to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.".

In doing so, Our Lady promised "to see to their souls.".


St. Joseph, the Protector

Through several private prophecies, yet-to-be-approved, we have been told that St. Joseph has been given extended power during these End Times. Remember that Our Heavenly Father thought enough of him to have him protect His Incarnate Son, and Our Blessed Mother.


The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come; before you I stand sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate! Despise not my petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer me. Amen.





This is similar to the message of Jesus to St. Faustina: "I want you to become like a knight experienced in battle, who can give orders to others amid the exploding shells. In the same way, my child, you should know how to master yourself amid the greatest difficulties, and let nothing drive you away from Me, not even your falls." (#1823)


"The Days of Elijah are here" (1 Kgs 17:10-24). Through my above mentioned second visionary friend, Our Lord has told me "to shout this from the roof tops."


Fr. Stefano Gobbi received messages from Our Lady from 1973 - 1997 (25 years). His messages carry IMPRIMATURS from many Cardinals, Archbishops, and Bishops of the Catholic Church. Three of the Cardinals are: the late Cardinal Echeverria of Ecuador, Cardinal Vidal of the Philippines and Cardinal Mikai of Thailand.

While the Imprimatur is not a declaration of authenticity of the messages being received from Our Lady, it does assure the reader that the messages are FREE FROM DOCTRINAL ERROR - i.e. they do not contain anything, which is contrary to the Catholic faith or morals.


The seal. Also see: Ez 9:5; Rv 7:3 and Rv 9:3-5)


My visionary friend who conducts our weekly prayer meetings has a Spiritual Director who is a Roman Catholic Priest. He is also the Spiritual Director of the refuge that I am associated with.


My other visionary friend does not have a Spiritual Director at this time.


This concept is discussed by Fr. William G. Most as follows in referring to the Typical sense:

In this the writer uses an event, a person, or an action to foreshadow something that is to come later. The original person or thing or event is called the 'type', and the later person or thing to which it refers is called the 'antitype'. The existence of this typical sense in a given passage can be determined only through revelation, which is interpreted for us by the Church. Thus, for example, Isaac being offered in sacrifice is a type of Christ."

Also refer to:
Types, Antitypes and Shadows

The messages of Carol Ameche have yet-to-be-approved by the Church.


The messages of John Leary. have yet-to-be-approved by the Church.


Detailed messages of Louise Tomkiel. have yet-to-be-approved by the Church.
