A Call To Holiness

08-18-88 Message A Call To Holiness 

I want your consolations, your sacrifices and sufferings, your penitence. Do not look for consolations for yourself. You know it is far better to give than to receive. When you give to your Lord, you perfect yourself beyond your imaginings. 

I am so alone. Console Me. I, the Giver of all good gifts, will fill you with joy, with My very Self. 

Do not seek consolations. Haven't I been faithful to you until now? Hasn't your cup been full until now? I am offering you a new gift. It is time for you to climb higher. I am offering you more of Myself. I want an intimate relationship - a spiritual marriage. 

I am calling you to new heights of prayer. Your old methods of prayer will, from now on, not be enough. I am calling you to contemplation, ultimately, union with Myself. The mental images I give will help you in this prayer. 

Do not look for signs or spiritual highs. These are short lived. I want to give you something far more permanent, deeper. The spiritual consolations and highs, the feelings that I give are for my precious babies. They are fragile. The need these. Sadly, many do not grow, do not advance. Consequently, they blow away with the wind. They turn away from me when they do not 'feel' anymore. Because of this, I suffer. Please console me. I have given you My compassion. I have always given you the very best that I have. 

You have proven that you are not one of the shallow ones. You have stood firm through dryness and trials. You cannot imagine how much I love you. Stay with Me. I am so alone. I need you. Do not doubt for a moment that I am with you. I will never leave you. 

When you suffer, when you are tempted, when disappointed, join them all to mine. In this way, we will become one. Your sufferings will turn to joy. 

Do not be anxious about what will happen tomorrow, what to do, what to say to Me. One step at a time I will lead you. I will teach you how to relax - to rest in Me. That is all I ask of you now. I will do the rest. I will bring to completion the good work I have begun in you. You must understand this when your feelings are at a low ebb. Feelings change like the wind. The peace that comes with good feelings is not the true peace that My Mother is inviting you to. The peace that comes with 'good feelings' does not last, will not sustain you for what is to come. The peace I am offering you today will endure any storm. This is the peace that is hard to find. My gift to you today. 

I only ask you to keep me company, to console Me. I am so alone. So many come to Me with their hands out - always wanting to take, take, take. When I give, they go away with happy faces and I seldom see them again until they want again. It must not be this way with you. You belong to Me and I to you. I need you just as you need Me.. 

Go and show others this way. Few find intimacy with Me in the world. Go out into the world and accept the inner peace that is My gift to you through My Mother. Console me often. This is all I ask. 

Tell the world that Medjugorje is a symbol to the world of a perfect heart. Many come to droves and perform pious acts. Without prayer and fast, few will endure the heat of the day. People must not loose what they find here. Many will unless my little souls continue to pray and fast. True conversion takes a long time. Many go home thinking they have found complete conversion. This is far from the truth. In fact, conversion just begins for the pilgrims. 

Your conversion is taking on the next phase. Be cautious now. The Great Tempter, will be stalking around your soul. You must always be prepared and remember that the power within you which is My own Spirit is much stronger. 

This way is not the easy one. But if you remain faithful, a crown of glory awaits you upon your death as you will have expiated the sins of many. 

Go in the peace that the world can never take from you. Thank you for coming to Medjugorje in answer to our invitation.

COMMENTARY 

These first words of Jesus are clearly a call to holiness, holiness being simply to fall in love with Him, with our whole mind, heart and soul; giving Him our lives with all of its' pain. 

We have all been called to Holiness in this period of grace. A choice is before each of us. 

Ivan was once asked if we are close to the end of the world. He responded that he did not know but that a train cannot be boarded once it has left the station. The time for boarding is NOW. 

The words of Mary on July 25, 1987 summarize this first message to me. Listen to them: 

"Dear Children! I beseech you to take up the way of holiness beginning today. I love you, and, therefore, I want you to be holy. I do not want Satan to block you on that way. Dear children, pray and accept all that God is offering you on a way which is bitter. But at the same time, God will reveal every sweetness to whomever begins to go on that way, and He will gladly answer every call of God. Do not attribute importance to petty things. Long for Heaven. Thank you for your response to My call." 

02-14-89 Message MESSAGE ON SPIRIT BLINDNESS 

'LORD, THAT I MIGHT RECEIVE MY SIGHT! 

COMMENTARY: In my humanness, I have become impatient with my inability to adequately describe the action of grace in my life. I've been impatient when I've been misunderstood. I have come to believe that Divine Truth cannot be understood from words or books, but only by personal experience and growth. Things said or written can be astonishingly misunderstood by those who live on lower levels of spiritual experience. I cannot possibly dogmatize about what I see but simply grasp the light with wonder and awe and thanksgiving and long with all my heart to see and understand more. One day, as I was thinking about my inability to project this light to others, the Voice, whom I have come to know as my best friend, spoke: "Consider this scenario, You are sitting on a park bench near the seashore with a blind man. The blind man cannot take in and appreciate all the beauty and activity surrounding you. Would you become angry or impatient with the poor unsighted man? Worse, would you get up and walk away leaving him in the darkness and alone? Suppose you see a sea gull drifting gracefully down unto the water, the sunlight catching a wave and changing the hue of the waters. You behold a cloud with a silver lining. You notice geese in their usual V for victory formation. The sunset resting on the horizon causes the sky to become a sea of pink, white and gold. The trees and foliage are resting against the backdrop of the sea and the sky in a lovely array of colors -- all revealing the dynamics of their Creator. You can see all of the Creators' handiwork. Because you can see you also experience it all. You experience the wonder and awe, the beauty and the might of your God. Consider, for a moment, the plight of the blind man sitting next to you. You attempt to explain the illusion of the variety of colors, the majesty of the trees, the graceful sea gulls, the water and the sky - the wonder of it all. You try to create a perspective but you fail. At best, you will create a collage of confusion with nature. If the man has no sight at all, you will fail miserably with your mere words. You cannot give the unsighted man the dynamics of the experience of God in the beauty of creation. You cannot give the spiritually blind the dynamics of the experience of God in your soul with words. You cannot give a blind man you eyes with which to see. Let Me tell you what you can give him. You can give your tears in compassion for him. You can give your laughter in affirmation of him. You can give a hug in acceptance of him. You can give an outstretched hand in support of him. You can give your presence in his loneliness. You can give Love. If you have given the blind man all of this you have painted, adequately enough, the wonder and awe, the beauty and majesty of your Creator in that beautiful scene. So, My friend, do not become angry or impatient. Most especially, do not give up on those who cannot see what you see. Do not curse their darkness. Rather, bring them the Light. For what is sight? Physically, it is the allowance of light into the eye. Spiritually, it is the allowance of Light into the heart. I am the Light of the World, the Truth and the Way. Bring Me to the blind and they shall see God. You shall dwell in the house of the Lord for all Eternity and enjoy the radiance of His Light." .The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a Light has dawned." Matt. 4:l6                Received 2-14-89
 

02-15-91 Message Received 2:00 P.M. in Medjugorje
 

"I invite you to the fullness of life - a life lived in the Resurrection Power of My Son Jesus. I, your Mother, have called you to Medjugorje, a wellspring of grace. Have your fill; because you are being commissioned to be a dispensary of grace to others. I invite you to enter into the greatest of mysteries, Jesus' real Presence among you. Tell those who come from far and wide that I lead them here to the Resurrected Presence of Jesus, experienced in this Great Sacrament. Submerge yourselves into this mystery. Once you grasp its' Power, find your repose within Him. He loves you so. Be strong of will when faith is weak and strength is gone. Satan's attacks are strong, but remember, your will is always your own. Call on Me, your Mother, at weak moments. I am with you always, most especially when you are in trouble. Pray and I will pray with you. I lead you to Jesus. Listen to Him. Do whatever He tells you. For your own sakes, and the world, live My messages. Thank you for responding to My call. 

Words of Jesus 

Seek no recompense for what good you do in My Name. Rather, perform every task, even the slightest for Love of Me. Seek even the slightest of acts of love and mercy with which to console Me. You console Me when you console your brothers and sisters. Pray for the grace of a sacrificial spirit. Look to do that which you do not want to do. In this way, you crucify the flesh and subject it to the Spirit. These little acts of love, for My sake, will convert many sinners. Be nourished within the Sacrament of My Resurrection. I have placed you in a strong faith community. Nourish one another. Love and support one another. You are all brothers and sisters in Me. I need you to be My Light in a world grown cold with selfishness and indifference to the things of God. I call you to be My shining one in this darkness that permeates everything. I have sent My Mother just as My Father sent Me - into the darkness as the worlds' last chance. Listen to Her. If you have not laid aside 'self', if your hearts have not changed, if there are traces of self- centeredness in the forms of envy, lust, pride, tepidness, avarice, you have not heard Her with your heart. Fool yourselves no longer. You are called to Holiness and to be blameless in God's sight. Be converted, then, and begin today. Do not be discouraged. You cannot go this way alone. My Mother waits for you to surrender your life into Her Hands. Grace will see you through what would otherwise be impossible. If you are living in the Power of My Resurrection, you will not fail. Please console Me with your little acts of mercy and love. Your Father sees all that you do for others and will reward your purity of intentions with delicacies from Heaven. Leave your burdens here with Me. Leave this Holy Mountain with a lighter load. Learn to live only in the present moment. The war will soon come to an end but greater chaos will erupt in the future. For this I say Pray - Pray for trust - in the smallest to the largest trials. The cause of My greatest Pain is the lack of trust of my children. You have been given grace to overflowing, which is My very Spirit activated within you. Persevere in the duties of your state in life. This is the mission I have entrusted to you. Sacrifice for sinners. Trust Me. Listen to My Mother, My Voice in the world today. Find your repose in the Eucharist, the testament of My Love. It is here I will be your Everything, your All in All to the end of time. I am faithful to all I have promised. My love for you is great - beyond your comprehension. It is mystery and will remain so until we meet face to face. Go in Peace. Thank you for trusting Me enough to have responded to the invitation which brought you here. Go forth with the commission I gave to My first Apostles -FEED MY LAMBS - WITH THE GRACES YOU TAKE FROM HERE.
 

03-24-91 Message MESSAGE OF PALM SUNDAY ADORATION
 

What a glorious day, Lord! How did you feel as you rode into the city that you loved so much to such a warm welcome? All the while You knew the tide of popular opinion would swing against you. But you let it happen as it went. You let them welcome you as a king knowing they would all turn against you. Why?? You accepted the hosannas knowing that they would, in a few short days, be shouting, Crucify Him! We do the same thing so many years later with the benefit of hindsight. We gather around your table and sing your praises; yet we reject you in the marketplace when we are challenged. We reject You when we box You into our limited understanding of how You should reign. You forgave them and asked the Father to forgive them..."For they know not what they do". You do the same today. You forgive us and ask the Father to do the same...and we know what we do! What kind of love is this? 

JESUS REPLIES, "This day foreshadows, sets the stage for the revelation of the great contrast, a sign of contradiction. The world of men against the world of God. You live in a world of change. The world and men are fickle. There is no security for you in it. The world will offer you much, then rob you of more. The world will promise you much, then give none of what it promises. Don't be lured; nor fooled. The world will bring you to naught. Trust God when your palms turn into nails, and they surely will - in the world. Like Me, set your face like flint, knowing you will not be put to shame. You are no more of this world than I was. My poor children! They thought I would be their worldly king. They wanted Me to deliver them from their enemies. Indeed, that is why I came. My poor blind children! They couldn't see their real enemy -the only enemy from which they needed deliverance. 

My poor blind children of this age! I am your King, your Deliverer. I have chained your real enemy. Live in freedom. They could not perceive this mystery then and they do not see it now. What kind of love is this, you ask? An all knowing kind -all knowing, everlasting, unchanging - the only security you will ever need. Go, tell my children of this kind of love, MY LOVE, that will not change when the tide of change turns against them - as it surely will - in the world. Breathe in this Love that I have allowed to radiate within this Church today.
 

03-26-91 Message MESSAGE ON WORK
 

"Treasure your work, too, as a gift from My Hands. Thank the Father for His generosity. Enjoy the fruits of your labor and the satisfaction you attain from a job well done. The material gain is another gift to you from Our Father. The sacrifice and the toil of your labors are counted as nothing when compared to its' benefits. Apply this principle to the workings of My Kingdom. The suffering asked from you is as naught when compared to the glory that will be yours in Heaven. Your life on earth is short. Every year, every day, even every minute is swiftly passing. Savor them all - good and bad as the necessary elements needed for you to arrive at the end for which you were created. Your life will come to an end some day. That end should be approached as you would a graduation. The end, the graduation, should be your focus while the means to that end utilized with precision, good planning, resourcefulness and joy. Attend to the details of your days with 'graduation' day as your goal. Your work, also, should be viewed in this manner. Your work will some day be finished. Prepare for that day. Learn all the lessons with which you are confronted. Be organized by careful planning. Unclutter your activities, your files, your mind. When the clutter begins to organize, your mind will be freer. Begin the task of prioritizing and organizing today. Prepare to graduate from your position in this way. Then you can say, with Me, "Father, the job you have given me is finished. Then and only then, can you leave your job and your life on this earth in Peace.
 

04-07-91 Message Message on Mercy Sunday
 

The age of the present is the era of My Divine Mercy. The key that I entrusted to My secretary/servant, Faustina, is the key that will unlock salvation for many. Divine Mercy is open to mankind. The floodgates are open. My Love and Mercy are inexhaustible. There is no sin, even the most hideous crime, that will not be purified in this reservoir. Nothing is beyond My Mercy. I have chosen you to call it forth. Pray to Faustina for intercession. She still works for the cause which was entrusted to her. I need you to seek Mercy for mankind. Mercy will rain from Heaven in torrents because of My faithful ones. Will you cooperate with this grace? My Heart is a chasm, infinite, greater than an ocean where love and mercy combine to create pure liquid gold. There exists between Me and you a channel, a stream, whose current flows both ways. If you are to be My Mercy-bearer, you must cooperate thus: Whenever you are hurt, whenever an injustice is committed against you, deposit it in this channel. Throw in all resentment, bitterness, harbored in your heart. Get rid of it all - past hurts, present and future. Forgive, forgive, forgive. Seize every opportunity for acts of love. Even the slightest. Love, forgive. Spend your days in love and forgiveness. Perform these acts with the intent to seek Divine Mercy. Make a covenant with Me today! Mercy will rain as a mighty torrent. For every act of love and forgiveness that you deposit in this channel, the floodgates will open. According to the Divine Will - a heretic will be blanketed in Truth, a hardened heart of stone will be turned to flesh, an abortion will be intercepted, a soul in purgatory will be freed. I need your cooperation in this work. The world needs your cooperation. I solemnly assure you - today My Mercy is inexhaustible and open to all. But a day is coming when the floodgates will close. Today, Mercy and Justice cannot coexist. When the age of Mercy is over, justice will prevail. Woe to mankind in that day. All that has not been purified in the day of My Mercy will be destroyed in the day of My Justice. It must be so. Heed My call. I need you. The world needs you. How much do you love Me? Enough to feed My sheep with Divine Mercy? I desire that not one be lost!
 

05-19-91 Message PENTECOST SUNDAY
 

My heart is overflowed with joy to the point of tears because of the presence of the children at my feet. Thank you for having taught them the importance of the Rosary and the faith filled practices of the Church. I am blessing the children in a special way. The graces that you call down upon yourselves by being here will also radiate into the whole community. I am recommending all of your petitions to My Son. You must trust in the Divine Will of God. Always strive to reach new levels of trust. On this glorious day of the Church, pray to the Holy Spirit to attain new levels of trust. God is working out the Perfect Plan for your salvation. Thank you for coming tonight. The children are being confirmed in grace. I love you.
 

06-06-91 ROSARY MOUND With every Rosary you say you are placing your jewels at my feet
 

You are the jewels of My Son's Kingdom. With every Rosary you say you are placing your jewels at My feet. I am offering them to My Son in your behalf. He will present them back to you when you meet face to face at the end of time. 

Because of My Motherly Love, I so desire to manifest Myself to all of you. But this is not within the Divine Will. The world is devoid of faith. The faith of My chosen, faithful ones are the antidote to the lack of faith in the world. Your faith must be pure and strong to dispel this disbelief. Faith is that which is unseen but hoped for. Be assured that I love you all the same. You must believe as though you see Me because I am always with you especially when you particularly need Me. If I could have favorites it would be the poor sinner who needs Me the most! 

I am blessing you and your community with a special blessing. It is good that you are here. Thank you for having responded to grace.
 

06-12-91 ROSARY MOUND I have given you many gifts
 

I am with you always especially when you pray in community. With every Rosary you offer to Me - I am giving new graces, always new - new rays of hope. 

According to the Divine Will, I have given you many gifts, many great gifts. I am asking you to pray to discover these gifts, then pray to the Holy Spirit for the courage to use these gifts in your homes, in your community. You must take these gifts seriously. I am coming to you seriously. The world is deep in the darkness of sin. You must be lights of grace. I need you to help Me win the final victory over Satan. 

You must avoid sin - not only in actions. Keep a guard on your hearts. Do not fix your attention on things of the world. Avoid attaching yourself to petty concerns. Remember, God first; people, second - esp. your families. All else must be used as God's gifts keeping your hearts free. 

If you could comprehend the majesty of God and His great Love for you, you would have unearthly joy in your hearts. If you could understand how sin offends our great God, you would avoid even the slightest offense - spending your moments repairing the Heart of My Son with your love. 

I love you. Thank you for your response to My Motherly Love by coming here. 

Do you know what it's like with a song in your heart - a song that can never be sung, have you ever known a love so great it can't be expressed because your beloved can't hear? I knew you all so well when you were buds within the womb. As seasons passed, My flowers grew amid the worlds' strife. Through pain and toil we have come - together, you and I. You didn't know that it was I who ordered rain and sun. You knew Me not, but, oh, I knew just what you would become. I knew just what you needed to be My full blown flower of Destiny. I've come to ask My flowers now to turn and face the sun. Turn, incline your ear and hear - MY LOVE SONG TO THE WORLD. Dear Father, TO THE WORLD which you have given Me I sing this song today Help them know the way Back to these shores of which I sing Where golden hue illuminate the day Where hope, promise, dreams fulfilled Await - O Father, this I pray.

06-19-91 ROSARY MOUND The greatest gift that man can offer back to God
 

Mary went to the car and blessed Steve's wife. 

She said that her life is her prayer - her suffering is her prayer, and it is the greatest gift that man can offer back to God. Then, She came to me and put Her Hands on my hands and my rosary beads, and She said, "Don't be so doubtful. Signs such as this accompany believers where the Holy Spirit dwells, for the honor and glory of God and the up building of His community." To all of us, She said, "I want to thank everyone here that offered today their sufferings and their lives to the hearts of Jesus and Myself. It is the way to sanctity." She said she thanks us for striving to live Her messages, but not to be discouraged because all is gift, all is grace. When we fail but we have the desire, it is more pleasing to Her if it flings us in Her arms asking for Her help than it is if we are just saying words. So, She said do not be discouraged, keep striving. She said She came to teach us how to love Her Son. It is with tears of empathy that She speaks of suffering to us because She has tasted its bitter pains. She said love born from suffering is the surest and deepest way to love. Love born from happiness is sweet to the taste but is shallower. Both weave the tapestry of our lives. She desires that we offer everything to the Lord on the altars of our life, on the altars of our hearts. She desires that we offer our days, all of the obstacles and all of the joys, to Him every day. Suffering offered to God is the greatest means by which we attain sanctity - it is the way to love. 

She thanks us for responding to Her call.
 

06-26-91 ROSARY MOUND The act of forgiveness
 

I call you here to this Holy place. Any place that is consecrated to My Son for His honor and glory, and where the Rosary is said in community is a Holy place. I want to be your teacher. I call you here as your teacher tonight. I wish to lead you on the way of perfection, the way to holiness. I have already talked to you about sanctifying your sufferings. 

Tonight I want to speak to you about the act of forgiveness. I come with an understanding heart as only a mother could. Even though I enjoyed the tremendous privilege of the Immaculate Conception, I fully understand from a human level how hard it is to forgive. Because I was granted such a sublime privilege, I could forgive My Sons' torturers. I am coming to you to help you and to tell you how important it is to forgive. It calls down upon you many graces and you grow in virtue the most when you can forgive. You all have cause to forgive. There are many injustices in your lives, many little pinpricks, many neglects, harsh words, misunderstandings, many things that you will have to forgive all of your lives. Many will even be persecuted - as men and women throughout history have been persecuted for their faith. You must forgive. I am here to help you. 

The reasons why you must forgive are largely due to your egos. The human ego is both very fragile and very strong - very hard to melt away. For most, it takes a whole lifetime for such self-abandonment. I am going to help you. 

With every act of forgiveness, you will chip away at your ego bit by bit. Look at My Son for the most sublime act of forgiveness ever in human history. Hours after He instituted the priesthood, He, the great high Priest, forgave from the altar of the cross. And when He said, "Father, forgive them" at that moment, salvic power was given to His sacrifice, by His Father. At that moment, He had forgiven the entire world for all sins past, present and future for all who seek forgiveness. At that moment, He forgave all. Because of His great love, He forgave. But now, you must forgive in order to get that love. The more you forgive, the more love will be poured into you. Your acts of forgiveness, too, will bring the graces to those whom you forgive, necessary for their conversion. This Divine Forgiveness also applies to yourselves. You must forgive yourselves, just as God forgives you. Leave all guilt in the confessionals. Guilt blocks grace. 

There is one here who is having a hard time with this act of forgiveness. The turmoil is largely due to the necessity to forgive. Pray to Me so I can pray with you. I will give you the grace necessary for this forgiveness. You will find peace and healing again. 

You must always forgive - Today forgive, tomorrow ask for forgiveness - and that is the way it will be for your whole life. Today you must forgive, tomorrow you must ask for forgiveness. I will be with you. I am blessing all of you and I thank you. I especially thank anyone here who was able to forgive in a divine way today. "Thank you."

CHRIST SPEAKS FIRST. "I WISH TO DRAW YOU INTO INTIMACY WITH MYSELF; INDEED, UNITY WITH MYSELF. THE BLESSED TRINITY WILL COME AND DWELL WITHIN YOU. I WISH TO LEAD YOU TO THIS INTIMACY THROUGH MY MOTHER. I HAVE GIVEN YOU THE VERY BEST THAT I HAVE. I GIVE YOU MY MOTHER. YOU MUST COME TO ME THROUGH HER IMMACULATE HEART.

07-14-91 Message I want to build each family into a strong and mighty fortress 

The Holy Family came to visit us - Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Mary had a heart in Her Hand. 

I have been coming to you to teach you through My Love and through My words because I want to build each family into a strong and mighty fortress - a fortress that will withstand the attacks of the enemy. His attacks are subtle and they are aimed towards the family and toward the youth. 

Oh, my children, you just don't understand the viciousness of your enemy nor the ugliness of evil and sin. Nor do you understand completely the ravages of sin and the immense love and depth of love that you are called. You couldn't understand fully. It is another grace to understand this. I am here to teach you. I am here to build up your family as a mighty fortress. 

To the fathers: You must take the leadership. You must be protectors, both of a physical nature and a spiritual nature. 

I speak especially to the mothers now. This is my heart. I offer it, especially to you because you must take the lead as only a mother's heart would know. You must be the example of bearing with one another's shortcomings. Take the lead in this. You all have shortcomings. All members in the family - bear with one another and forgive - endlessly forgive. Sacrifice and turn all of those sacrifices into your sanctification and that of your family. Mothers, take the lead. Build a wall, a shield around your children. A wall of love. I have shown you how this love grows. 

I love you all. I am here to protect you, to help you. 

The children are a serious charge that God has given you. Their hearts are pure and simple. Their faith is fragile. Know they are a serious obligation. Take this very seriously. You will be held accountable. 

Mary went to each child and kissed them. Jesus blessed each child. 

"I love you, children, I love you." 

07-17-91 Rosary Mound I come with great joy because God has deemed it fit to grant you many graces through Me 

The God of Peace wishes to make you perfect in holiness. He wishes to restore and make you whole in body, soul and spirit. That is why I come to you. I visit you tonight in the spirit of the Glory of God to proclaim to you His Mercy and His Love for you. I come with great joy because God has deemed it fit to grant you many graces through Me. He wishes to invite you to experience the healing power of Jesus, for Jesus' honor and glory, and through the merits of His Holy Wounds, so that you might love Him more perfectly. Each of you has within you hearts buried, hidden - for some, unknown, scars and residue, voids created by sin. Created by sins of others that have hurt you, created by the guilt of your own sin that have already been forgiven. Whatever the reason, you all have many scars that need healing. These scars weigh you down and prevent you from loving My Son perfectly. 

I invite you to enter into My Heart where Jesus always reposes. Take His Hand. He wishes to anoint you with a healing balm. I will give you a mental image to help lead you into mental prayer for this healing. I ask you to clothe yourselves with thanksgiving and claim these healings. Be healed of the past and live free. Thank God for life, thank Him for your life renewed. Thank Him for the thorns that will be transformed into the jewels of your crown. Come, children, pray and receive these healings. 

*************************************************************** 

Our Lady led us into the form of prayer She described above. We formed a circle around the altar and followed Her guidance. 

Pray to the Holy Spirit, ask Him to come upon you and help you recall all of the pain and suffering hidden deep within your hearts that the Lord now wishes to uncover and heal. Pain and scars from your youth, from the past somewhere - anything that may have caused great pain and sorrow. You may not even be aware that you are still carrying the burden. The Holy Spirit will help you recall the scenes - anything in your hearts that is encumbering you from loving Jesus as perfectly as you could, as I wish. Take a moment to think about these events that the Holy Spirit brings to the surface of your consciousness. 

Enter into that situation or relationship again. Go back to it. Go all the way back to your childhood if necessary. Try to live the feelings. Picture Jesus mentally. Bring Him into that situation. Ask Him to come, ask Him for that inner or physical healing. Ask Him whatever the Spirit leads you to ask for. 

Go back again - this time go back with Jesus as your companion. You and Jesus, together, before the painful scene. Jesus anoints, with the healing balm, the scars, the pain. Jesus is the Divine Healer. You are being healed of something - spiritual, memories, emotions, physical - whatever the situation. You are being Healed. Thank Him. Claim your healing. 

07-21-91 Family Rosary I, your Mother, want you to be happy in this life 

Given for Family Rosary Group before 9:00 AM Mass 

My dear faithful families, 

All mothers want their children to follow paths of righteousness in order to possess happiness. I, your Mother, want for you to be happy in this life. 

I do not come to you to nag or to burden you with many rules and commandments to follow for their sakes alone. Rather, I wish to bring you deeper understanding into God's commandments, which is His Will for you. I wish to bring you to the grace of strong family bonds, firmly intertwined with love. I want you to be happy. Nurture this love by spending time with one another. 

The Lord's Day, Sunday, is God's gift to you for this purpose. Do not abuse this gift by inordinate work, worry or preoccupation with other cares. I want to give you the far greater reason for the commandment, Keep the Day of the Lord Holy. It was laid down for you! Sunday is God's gift to you. 

In this age, the demands of living press down heavily upon you. Allow time for renewal and rest. God's plan for you allowed for rest and renewal - on Sunday. Men think they know better than God! They push themselves too far and the Spirit weakens too! Try to remember, Satan's attacks are stronger when you are weak and abuse God's laws taking matters into your own hands. 

I am requesting each family to accept God's healing gift of Sunday. Allow this gift to renew and cleanse body and spirit by sharing this day - together. It is God's Will for your happiness and the happiness of your family life. 

Thank you for responding to this invitation. 

******************************************************************** 

Note: I asked Our Lady if She would ever run out of things to say to us. She responded with a question, "Will you ever run out of things to say to your children? Will you ever run out of things to say to Me, your Mother?" 

However, She said, sometimes it is God's will for us to seek Him in obscurity, to proceed in the silence and dryness. She will come as long as it is His Will. She reminded me that we should always seek the God of consolation, rather than the consolation of God. This is the way of Faith.

07-24-91 Rosary Mound My Motherly Heart is heavy with the knowledge of the vicious attempts of Satan to destroy our young people 

(given before 12:00 Mass) 

I am coming here to you, My faithful remnant, because I need your help. My Motherly Heart is heavy with the knowledge of the vicious attempts of Satan to destroy our young people. 

I am commissioning you to them to be their teachers. I, your Teacher, am sending you to them as teachers. I want you to see them as I see them. 

They are susceptible to the perils in the world. Satan's power is unleashed among them in the form of every addiction imaginable. 

My dear ones - 

My motherly heart cries because I see what they cannot, what you cannot - the poverty of their souls. They do not realize that their souls cry out, "Give Me God." They attempt to fill this cry of their soul by eating from the hand of the deceiver. 

I need you, My Chosen, to be their teachers. Help them hear the voice of God in their souls. Help them realize their insatiable desires come from the soul - not the body. Please, my loves, I need you to help them! Tell them that there is a power trigger in your culture that is shaping their desires. It is diverting souls to excessive buying and selling consumptionism. This power trigger is the devil. 

You must bring them the power trigger of the Holy Spirit, whose love is stronger than passing attractions, whose power is more penetrating -- penetrating beyond the sensual to the very essence of man. 

I wish you to attach My young ones to My Immaculate Heart this evening by your Rosaries. I wish to aid you in your meditations tonight. 

During the Joyful Mysteries, meditate on the sweetness and innocence of My Precious Son's Life. Present, during these mysteries, all the innocent youth of the present age. Be specific picturing all the youth that come to mind. Also, be general, bringing the youth of the whole world to My Heart. 

During the Sorrowful Mysteries, meditate on the viciousness of evil as demonstrated on My Son's Body. Present all the hideous attacks of Satan on the youth. Be the merits of His Passion, ask that these attacks on young people be bound -- drugs, sex, violence, disobedience, atheism -- among the youth. (Bring them all to the Savior of them all.) 

During the Glorious -- meditate on the Victory of My Son and the triumph of My Immaculate Heart for our youth! 

GOD BE WITH YOU ON THIS MISSION FOR YOUTH! 

07-24-91 Rosary Mound Thank you for joining your prayers with mine for youth 

"Thank you for joining your prayers with mine for youth." 

"With every addiction among young people, innocence is being crucified over and over. It would seem that the devil is winning them over. Look to the Victory beyond the cross. My Son won salvation for the world through His Sacrifice. Your sacrifices and your prayer joined to Mine can win freedom for our young." 

07-27-91 Family Rosary Families are being torn apart today by the seeds of negativity being sown by the beast 

My Dear Chosen Families - 

How I love you for your faithfulness in praying My Rosary as families united! I would like you to persist in keeping our haven of prayer alive. It is a strong protection against Satan, the adversary, for your families. 

I chose you and called you here. I wish to form a family cenacle of prayer. I am forming them in many parts of the world among my chosen ones. These cenacles are powerful weapons against the onslaught of evil. My children, never forget the power in prayer; especially when joined to those of My Immaculate Heart. 

Families are being torn apart today by the seeds of negativity being sown by the beast. Divorce, division, contraception and abortion (godlessness of every sort) run rampant in today's modern family. To offset these evils - I am asking you to sacrifice for this intention. Each member of the family should give up something, make a sacrifice of any sort, for another member of the family. Lend a helping hand, a listening ear - offer an extra act of love. Do this for love of God and for God-centered family life in your community, in the world. 

My Children, reflect on my messages this week. You will see - I am leading you to Perfect Love - for each other and for God. All that I ask of you must emerge from your heart and not just from a sense of duty. Let your sacrifices come from your heart. 

God has ordained that in this hour many great blessings are being poured out upon your families. If circumstances prevent you from being here, pray together with your family, wherever you may be. Unite your prayers with the group and the same graces will be given you. God is being so generous to you in these days of his Mercy! 

Consecrate your families to Me each week. I will shelter your families within My Mantle. 

Thank you for responding. 

07-31-91 Rosary Mound You know fully well that you are living in perilous times 

I have spoken to you as a mother, as a teacher, as a friend - because I love you. Tonight I wish to fortify you with HOPE. 

My children, you know fully well that you are living in perilous times. I have spoken often, all over the world, regarding the attacks of Satan against the Mystical Body of My Son. You know you are living through the age of the antichrist. 

That is why I have called you, am preparing and forming you to be My co-victors in the battle which the Church is engaged. My children, you must be convinced that your prayers and sacrifices united to My Immaculate Heart are powerful! If you are taking My word seriously, you will triumph with My Son and I. Be joyful and hopeful. Even though My messages are serious and warn of continued danger for the Church, the light of a new day follows. 

Tonight I have gathered your prayers and with them I am forming a shield of protection for Priests, the Beloved of My Heart. Satan is stealing priests away from their father, the Pope. He is seducing them with lies, compromises and worldliness. He is seducing them with apathy, a grave danger especially for priests serving God in the present day. My Heart cries for My Beloved Priests! Pray and sacrifice for them this week. You, My soldiers, go to battle this week with Me for our priests! 

I come as your Mother of Hope. Let us look beyond the Cross to the Resurrection! 

Thank you for responding by coming here. 

********************************************************************* 

After our prayers of petitions: 

"Thank you for your faith. I am recommending all of your petitions to My Son. I am blessing you with an increase in the virtue of Hope and I am sprinkling graces of trust upon you so that you may be assured that your petitions are secure within My Immaculate Heart.
 

08-03-91 Message SACRED HEART CONGRESS 

"I am very pleased.  The angels and saints have followed your procession this morning blending their voices with yours making a sweet melody unto heaven. 

I, your mother, am most grateful for this fitting tribute to the Heart of My Son.  His Most Sacred Heart, the Heart of Hearts has been gaping open since the pierce of the lance, for you - for all mankind. 

You have opened your hearts to His, these days of the Congress.  He is uniting your poor hearts to His on this day, My Day, in thanksgiving to you, the organizers and participants for this Congress, for your response to My Spouse, the Holy Spirit. 

He is giving you, through the intercession of My Immaculate Heart, a portion of His own.  He is replacing your hearts of flesh with Hearts united to Divine Love. 

The angels are, at this moment, sprinkling you with the greatest of Heavenly gifts - pure charity - a portion of the Perfect Love of My Son. 

You, My chosen, are living lives of faith and grace.  I am well pleased.  I am asking you - today - Receive this grace.  Comprehend it. 

Thank you for all the sacrifices made to bring you to the Congress, the hour of His Mercy."
 

08-05-91 Message I am forming you to be the Eternal Circle of Love 

My dear, precious families, It is in the pure light of love that I speak to you, My family cenacle of prayer. I am forming you to be the Eternal Circle of Love, all over the earth, for the Glory of Jesus. 

I come tonight to ask you to join with Me in covering many sins of pride - by your acts of obedience in your daily lives. I present to you as your model, the Cross of My Son - as the most efficacious act of obedience to His Father. His act of obedience to the Father bought for the world Eternal Life. 

I am asking you, My chosen families, to atone for acts of disobedience this week, especially disobedience to the Holy Father. 

My precious little ones, I am asking you to help Me in a special way with our mission of reparation. Will you comply with all the requests of your parents - promptly? Will you say yes to mom and dad all week as a special favor to Me, your Heavenly Mother? If you can do this because you love Me and Jesus, you will be acting just as Jesus did. Will all members of families gathered here live out the duties relevant to their state in life, respecting all authority figures with whom God has placed before you, as an act of obedience to the Will of God for My intention? 

My children, what I am asking of you is so little in comparison to the merits wrought by your acts of obedience. If you only knew - pride is a disguised evil aimed at crucifying humility, the embodiment of the very Truth of God. 

Your families are little churches called to live out this Truth of God. Live humility and triumph with the Church of Christ when He returns in Glory. 

08-07-91 Rosary Mound I come to teach you Perfect Love of your Jesus on the Cross 

"I speak to you as your Mother of Sorrows, My children, because I love you, I come to teach you perfect love of your Jesus on the Cross. 

God has provided you with many teachers throughout your lives. All that you have been taught about Jesus - His Life, His ministry and death have been the foundation, the cornerstone upon which your faith has been built. 

I come as your Teacher, not of you intellects, but of your hearts. All that I ask of you, My children, must emerge from your heart. 

Many followed My Son during His public ministry. Many turned back when His ways and His words eluded them, when their life-styles were challenged, when defeat seemed eminent. Men turned away from Jesus when the tide of popular opinion swung against Him. Many of His friends, my children, turned away. The turning away of His friends was what prompted His prayer, "My God, My God, Why hast thou Forsaken Me." His friends - those whom He had given the Image and Love of His Father! 

History has produced many believers but when faith asks men to go beyond themselves and their perception of truth; often, faith is abandoned or compromised. Throughout the ages, Christianity has been so. Somewhere along the Way of the Cross, many give up. Many dry bones are found along this way. Many of His closest, chosen ones withdrew and denied Him. Today this is still true. 

My Children, it must not be so with you. Follow Me, your guide, your Teacher, your Mother of Sorrow all the way to the foot of His cross where only a few linger. Do not turn back when the road ahead seems steep. Just rest awhile with Me in His presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament. 

Don't turn back when fatigue, pain and failure slow you down and your human understanding does not satisfy. Fly to refreshment, nourishment in the Holy Eucharist. Press on, My loved ones to the end. Learn well these lessons of the heart and at the foot of His cross, hear Him call you His Beloved. Glory awaits just beyond the horizon for those who are united with Me at the foot of His cross. 

Meditate this week on His Passion. Picture yourself in the characters of the holy women of Jerusalem, Simon, the crowd, Me, His Sorrowful Mother, even the executioners. You have been all of these at times through your lives. Picture yourself at the foot of His cross. hear Him call you "Beloved of My Heart." Thus will begin the intimacy He wants with all of you." 

08-11-91 Message God wishes to show His greatness through you 

Praised by Jesus - for allowing Me, your Mother, to visit you My beloved families. 

God wishes to show His greatness through you. He wishes to restore the reign of peace on the earth, the peace that was lost due to sin. You, my children, are an integral part of the fulfillment of that plan, My peace mission. 

If you could only grasp the breadth and depth of His Love for you! 

My children, I come to tell you God exists and wishes for Me to ready your hearts to receive Him in His fullness. He has placed His image within each of you and desires you to recognize His image in each member of your families. 

I have asked you, even begged you to pray. Pray in every circumstance. Pray constantly - from your heart! How can you pray to God from your heart, Whom you cannot see when you cannot communicate with each other - from your hearts, whom you can see? My families, how important it is for you to communicate. Isolation and loneliness are arising - even in families devoted to My Son. Little is spoken - even at the family table - often because of worry, self- absorption and haste. 

I come to ask you tonight, as your Mother who is concerned for the plight of the modern family, to be on guard against the subtlety of the enemy who is the master mind of today's secular humanism. Nurture discipline in your lives by limiting TV. Beware of excessive business and self-centered activities. 

God has put you in a family environment, His image implanted within each member. Communicate from your hearts to find Jesus in each other. Be attentive to each others' needs by keeping the channels of communication always open. 

If you heed My advice, you will be open to pray to God, your loving Father, Jesus, your brother and the Holy Spirit, united with your family - from your heart. 

Your family is a gift from God, the vehicle God has chosen for you to love Him in and through one another. Love Him as family with one mind and one heart. 

My children, speak heart to heart to one another. Likewise, pray from your heart to God with supplications, praise and thanksgiving of every sort. March into battle with Me your Mother with these weapons. With God on our side, We will win. Our enemy will be defeated. 

Thank you for responding to Grace. 

08-14-91 Rosary Mound Feast of The Assumption 

"Rejoice with Me, My Chosen Ones, on the Eve of My Glorious Feast day! All of Heaven rejoices in endless joy. Praise, celebration, rejoicing resound in Heaven because God has granted Me the great privilege of being assumed Body and Soul into paradise. This feast, the greatest afforded Me by God, is My birthday into Eternal Bliss. On this day, I was fully united with the Triune God. 

My poor children, you cannot fully understand the Glory that is Mine. You cannot understand fully the mystery of time. In heaven, time is perpetual - the past, present and future. Thus My Glorious Feast is perpetually celebrated by the angels and the saints. 

I considered Myself as nothing while on the earth - an empty vessel. In heaven, I am the Vessel through which all graces flow. On earth, wisdom was not mine to possess. In Heaven, I am the Seat of Wisdom, containing its' fullness. I owned nothing much of the worlds' goods. In Heaven, I reflect the Glory of God. My Soul, which has always magnified the Lord, blazes like the Sun, yet a mere reflection of the Glory of God. My children, I possess ALL. 

My loved ones, I was merely the Handmaiden of the Lord, on earth. In Heaven, God has raised His humble servant to Queenship placing Heaven and earth at Her feet. My battle cry was, Be it done unto Me according to Thy Word, which is Truth and Justice; until the day My beloved called, "Arise, My Love, My Dove, My beautiful One and Come - enter into the Eternal Bliss awaiting you since before the dawn of time", where beauty truth and love shine with the brilliance of the sun, personified through Our Risen Savior. 

My devoted sons and daughters, on behalf of My Son, I invite you to the Banquet, where your every tear shall be dried, where peace and love shall be your portion - eternally. Anticipate the assumption of your spirit into heaven where it will re-unite with your glorified body on the last day. Long for this day. Allow its' wonder to fill your soul and carry you onward. Persevere! Be His handmaiden. Be His empty vessel - until you hear His call, "Arise, My Love and Come - into the House of your Father, prepared for you when you were yet an image in the Eye of God." 

08-18-91 Message Satan wishes to destroy the Body of My Son on earth 

"My Beloved Families - 

Satan wishes to destroy the Body of my Son on earth. He attacks My chosen families with particular viciousness. His attacks aim at relationships. 

That is why I visit so many of My children - to warn them and to teach them. You have been chosen to be lights of all that I give you. To you, I entrust the peace within families in your community. I continually enlighten you to the way of peace in your families. I desire you to grasp this peace to which I am leading you and witness to it within your community. 

The Body of My Son is broken - most painfully experienced within the breakup of families. My children are maliciously abusing the laws of the Church governing annulments/divorce. Annulments are granted too frequently. Satan weakens the resolve of married partners. Satan hardens the hearts of married partners. He twists and distorts the problems of married life in the minds of spouses so that they would rather give up than reconcile their differences. Married partners are misled about the meaning of married love. They have forgotten that their Lord and Savior came upon this earth to serve rather than to be served. They have forgotten that they, too, must also follow in this way of service. 

My children, to serve and give freely in the married state is the way to happiness. So many couples in this modern age do not realize that marriage commitment should and will sustain their love rather than believing that their love will sustain their marriage. 

My chosen spouses - Your love will not sustain your marriages, because your love is imperfect. I say to you the opposite is true. Be true to your marriage commitment. Obedience in this commitment will sustain, strengthen and make perfect your love for each other. 

Divorce tears apart the Body of Jesus. Christian families are little churches, My children. 

I tell you this so you will know the truth and it will set you free. 

The Body of Jesus is broken through divorce. Pray with Me, your Mother of Good Counsel, this week, for all those who are on the threshold of divorce. 

Be on guard yourselves, My Beloved. Resolve your differences with communication, mutual respect, love and trust. Avoid all that divides. Let the most frequently spoken words in you homes be, I love you and I'm sorry. 

08-21-91 Rosary Mound Thank God for allowing me to come as your Mother most tender in these tumultuous days 

Praise be to Jesus! Let us join our hearts together in praise and thanksgiving to Almighty God for allowing Me so many visitations on the earth in these tumultuous days leading to the Triumph of My Immaculate Heart. The perfect will of God has allowed Me these visitations under various titles; but, always I come as your Mother most tender. 

God has conferred upon Me the title of Mother when He chose Me to be the Vehicle whereby Jesus was born into the world. My role as Mother reverses and unfolds at the foot of the cross, when, again, I am chosen to be the vehicle whereby My children of the world must be born into the Kingdom of God. Just as God came to His children through Me; so now, His children must come back to Him through me. 

It is as your Mother and your Queen of Peace that I appeal to you with the ever-consistent desire of My Heart to lead you to Peace. Peace is being threatened on a world-wide scale. Peace will remain just an illusion until the Prince of Peace reigns in the hearts of men. True, lasting peace and freedom will never be born out of political resolutions, treaties and strategies. Peace must emerge from the hearts of men. Without this heart-peace, there will never be world peace. Without peace, true freedom will never exist. My children, don't be easily fooled! 

I offer you the way to peace. My Son must be recognized and loved - as Savior - as Lord - as King. My chosen ones, I beg you to pray, pray from your hearts that the hearts of men be converted, continually offer the sacrifices relative to your state in life, repairing the damages wrought by sin and neglect of My Son. 

I call you to Live for Love alone all of your days. Love covers a multitude of sins. I wish for your hearts to swell with love for Jesus. See His Face in the oppressed, see His bruised Face in the poor and abused. See Him in the lonely and broken-hearted. Recognize His face in these, His broken ones, and Love will be born. 

I call you tonight to live - PRAYER, SACRIFICE AND LOVE. Peace will reign in your hearts. If My requests are taken seriously, strong and rich shoots will sprout from these seeds growing among My chosen remnants already taken root around the world. These, My Shoots, must withstand persecution and adversity. These, My shoots, will one day become the tree of life in the barren desert of the world. 

Pray, with Me your Mother, for heart-peace - the fulfillment of Gods' Mighty Plan - the triumph of My Immaculate Heart. 

08/25/91 Family Rosary I continue to be your way to Divine Will 

Peace be with you, MY Beloved Families! 

I continue to be your way to Divine Will. You, My chosen Christian families, are little churches. I desire to give you an understanding of the sublimity of what it means to be church. Your families are My son's body on earth - the embodiment of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Accept this great privilege from the Hand of God with humility and a deeper understanding of what you are as families in the eyes of God. 

Pray for humility and understanding to accept the mission to which your families have been called. 

Through the sacrament of marriage, God has called partners to be co-creators with Him. Your 'creation' becomes the temple of God as Jesus comes into your hearts and homes in the Holy Eucharist. Your 'creation' has as its' binding force, the God-Breath of love given you through the Holy Spirit. 

Oh, if you could fathom the tremendous mission to which you have called as family! 

I come to lead you as you become Jesus' perfect little churches. 

I bring to you, tonight, a special gift - My Most Chaste Spouse and Protector of My Holy Family, St. Joseph, as a companion on your way to perfection. He, having been exalted in Heaven for His virtue, is an ever-faithful companion to all who invoke His intercession, especially in matters concerning family life. Accept Him as your companion and friend. Your family will advance in great virtue through His intercession and guidance. 

I tell you this to bring you to a greater realization and appreciation of the great treasury of graces you have in all the saints in Heaven, who are always disposed for your care. 

Thank you for responding to grace. 

***************** 

Note: Tonight, we offered our rosaries in response to a letter we received begging for prayers as a result of the persecution of the Church in Yugoslavia. Atrocities are being committed against the priests and the whole Catholic Church in Croatia. 

Our Lady responded directly to our prayers: "Remember, My Immaculate Heart will triumph through your prayers, especially from pure hearts and when offered to My Heart. All that passes through My Hands becomes a purified offering to God. My persecuted Church in the East will one day rise strong and shine like the sun." 

(The angels as well as St. Joseph prayed with the children at the foot of the statue of Mary. Mary frequently compares rosaries to roses or jewels to teach us the value and beauty of prayer in the eyes of God. The prayers of the angels and St. Joseph multiplied our own prayers this night.) 

08-28-91 Rosary Mound God's Plan is unfolding as predicted 

My Dear Children, 

Rejoice with Me because God's plan is unfolding as predicted! So many of My children are still so blind. They cannot see the Hand of God in the unraveling of the events in your world today. 

You, my Cohort, recognize the Master plan of God unfolding before your eyes. You know that God has appointed Me to be your victorious Queen ushering in the wondrous reign of Peace - such as the world has not known since sin entered the heart of man. 

My faithful Cenacle - special riches from God's bounty have been preserved and specially anointed by the Holy Spirit for these days in which you are living. I am inviting you, My consecrated ones, to enter deeper and more completely into the mystery of total consecration to Me, your Mother. I wish to protect you as a Mother protects the babies at her breast through Total Consecration to My Immaculate Heart. 

I am drawing all of My chosen to total abandonment to Me - your Mother who loves you and wants to lead you in the quickest, safest and smoothest manner possible to Jesus. My wish is to make a perfect offering to Jesus in your behalf. 

To accomplish this, I am asking for concentrated movement toward self-renunciation - renouncing self-will and self-love. Entrust all to me - your mind, body, actions, thoughts - your total self, interiorly and exteriorly. Confide in Me all of the aspirations of your heart, your prayers, the actions of your lives. Allow Me to be your treasury, whereby all that you are is stored within Me. Allow Me to safeguard all that you possess or ever will possess. I will be your mediatrix - offering all to God for you. 

I am the Pure vessel that God chose to come to you. Allow Me to be for you the Pure Vessel whereby you come to God. Giving Me all, My children, you will receive all. 

Heed the invitation I bring to you tonight. Absorb it in your heart. It is the sure way to pass from this world of sin into the Kingdom of Grace. 

If you choose to accept this invitation to Graces untold, I will come to you leading you on this way. I will speak to your hearts, gently leading you into the renunciation of self that uniquely applies to you. Pray, pray for the whisperings of My guidance. 

My Beloved, these are decisive times for your faith. Satan is striking at My Heel - you, My army of chosen souls, who will, with Me, lead many into victory. For some, your part will be hidden by your prayers and sacrifices. For others, your part will be leadership, using your God-given gifts to lead others to safety. All are equal in My sight. 

Be assured, I am asking nothing for Myself. My desire is to gather the fold for My Son. I am not your goal. I am not the prize at the end of the race. I am not the sun, blinding you with its' brilliance. Rather, I am the moon, whose gentle light only reflects the sun, illuminating your soul with a vision of the hope for which you were created. 

True Devotion to Me is the solid column arising out of the turbulent sea in which My Son's Church struggles to remain afloat. Please, My Beloved, help Me raise it up so as to serve as a lifeline for many. 

Thank you for your response to grace. 

09-04-91 Rosary Mound Satan will plague you with frustrations, discouragement and confusion 

"Satan is strong today, especially in tempting the members of My cenacles. He will attack interiorly, even more so than exteriorly. He will plague you with frustrations, discouragement and confusion. These are the tactics he will use, especially with My Beloved Cenacles. 

Endure these onslaughts with child-like trust. This will rebuke his effect, his power over you. This is why I am calling for total and complete consecration to My Heart, especially from members of My Cenacles. Entrust everything to Me because I know what he is trying to do to you. 

My children, beware - even of the good, wholesome acts that you engage in for Me and My Son. If they are causing you undue anxiety or much inner activity - be very cautious. Your focus must always be on Jesus. When you find yourself loosing peace in your hearts, even when your endeavors are seemingly for My Son, stop! Stop, and enter the sanctuary of your soul. Find the peace again. Be at peace! 

That is why I am coming to you as your Mother of Peace, your Queen of Peace, because that is the very thing that Satan is attacking within your hearts, even under the guise of good. 

I am calling forth, tonight, a few to be used to mend the broken Body of My Son. I desire that of few from this group to used by the Holy Spirit to administer the gift of healing - to be a healing team for My Son's broken body. As you pray for this gift, you will be moved in your hearts. Always, always remember that these gifts that are being poured out upon the earth in these latter days are for the up-building of My Son's Body. They are not for your personal holiness. Remember, exterior manifestations from God, as magnificent the gift may be, will never take the place of the pure gift of faith that you must all have. 

Your holiness will be hidden, it will arise out of pure faith that is often obscure. Seek My Son in pure faith. Faith, hope and love is your way to holiness - no other. The day will come when faith will become vision, hope will become the reality of eternal bliss and all your acts of love will be your crown. 

I am leading you because Satan would like to confuse you on this matter. I love you for your perseverance. The Holy Spirit is anointing you. Pray for the gift of healing so that a team be formed to mend My Son's Broken Body. Never think that these gifts come from within yourselves. 

I love you."

9-4-91 ROSARY MOUND 

My Children, 

I wish to bring you a simple understanding of the Infiniteness and Greatness of God. because I desire to lead you to self-abandonment to God.  The self-abandonment I desire for you is complete child-like trust. 

How can I convey to you the Majesty and Holiness of Almighty God?  His omnipotence exceeds the capacity of your limited understanding.  His Greatness exceeds the expanse of the seas and the sky. 

Imagine the sky as a pure white canvas - as far as your eye could see and your imagination could fathom.  Imagine, on that canvas, a tiny pinpoint of a speck of black.  The limitless white represents God, the speck of black represents the whole world.  My dear children,  this contrast can only help you to begin to understand the superiority of God above all creation. 

I ask all of my children gathered here to reflect on who you are in relation to God.  My children, you are so little, yet expanded only because of His great love for you. 

Reflect on His Omnipotence, His Holiness so you can begin to see your littleness.  I come to guide you to the awareness of yourselves, your world.  I wish to lead you to self-abasement, the only natural conclusion to true introspection. 

Rejoice with Me because He loves you So; weep with Me because He is loved so little in return. 

My Beloved chosen remnant, I am the seat of Wisdom who points you to God who is WISDOM.  I am the manifestation of Godís Love who points you to God who is LOVE.  I come to you with many graces, yet I wish to lead you to God who is the GIFT and the GIVER.  I come to teach and bear witness to the Truth, leading you to God, who is TRUTH. 

The Holy Spirit is upon you.  Continue to trust as a child. 

09-08-91 Family Rosary What Joy in Heaven as My children celebrate My Birthday! 

"What joy in Heaven as My children on earth celebrate My Birthday! 

My Children, as you remember My Birthday, I wish to bring you an understanding of My humanness, My ordinariness in the role I played in family living. 

I ask you, tonight, to meditate on the Joyful Mysteries because they most adequately reflect the human elements of My life.  These Mysteries tell the story of Godsí Master Plan for My sojourn on earth.  They tell the story of the Perfect Harmony between Godsí Call and My Response. 

I was born, like you, to bring to perfection all the virtues within Me, planted by the Holy Spirit. I was born to glorify God through My Humanness - in suffering, in joy, in love, in acceptance. I was born to play My part in perfect accordance with Godís Will in trust - as a daughter, as a wife, as a Mother, the Mother of all Mothers. 

I was born to cooperate with Godsí Plan in the context of family life, like you, in the ordinary, often hidden unfolding events of each new day. 

Today, I offer you the gift of My humanness to be your light, to guide you through your own family living.  My earthly life must be, for you, an example of the trust you must have to get you through your own days filled with questions without answers. 

Thank you for your Rosaries, which are received in Heaven, as a beautiful and fragrant bouquet of Roses. 

Receive My Kiss of Peace upon your families as you continue your pilgrimage through life advancing toward life eternal. 

09-11-91 Rosary Mound I come to remind you that God bought you for a price 

My Children, 

I come to remind you that God bought you for a price.  You belong to Him.  You are a slave to Him. 

He allows Me to come and claim you for Himself.  I wish to teach you the proper meaning of the slavery that you owe to God so that you will respond without hesitation. 

Your human heart, by itsí very nature is meant for slavery.  If your heart is enslaved by the world, God will have no hold on it.  If your heart is won over by God, the world cannot attract it.  It will be one way or the other for you. 

God wishes to enslave your heart and enshrine it with His Love.  My children, grasp this truth -  Until you are the slave of My Son, that is to say, until your heart is enslaved by His love, you will never know freedom. 

For those of you who have responded to My call for Perfect Consecration to My Motherly Heart, enslavement to My Son is your portion and cup and reward. 

For the Hearts of My Son and I are interlocked.  We wait for your heart also to connect with ours. 

I ask you tonight to pray for the grace to continue on this Way to True Freedom. 

I am well pleased with your efforts.  Remain alert.  Pray and fast - in this way repelling your enemies who attempt to block you on this Way to Freedom - to Perfect Love. 

I Love You, My Children. 

09-22-91 Family Rosary The Holy Spirit wishes to dwell in your hearts 

MY CHILDREN, MY COMMITTED FAMILIES 

I Love you!  Thank you for your attentiveness to My Voice, to all of My invitations to grace. 

The Holy Spirit wishes to dwell in your hearts and thus, in your homes - continually, in every generation.  My Children, your faith is your greatest inheritance, the greatest inheritance of your children and your children'sí children.  It is a gift of great worth given by God and passed on from generation to generation.  It is meant to be taught and lived and embraced in every age. 

Your family is God's masterpiece.  Your family is your tree of life - strong and fruitful whose branches and shoots have been born of every generation - always growing and producing fruit in itsí season.  Your family tree is sustained by itsí hidden, silent root system - the very Breath of God; without which, would wither and die.  Deceased members of your family tree are also supporting you and loving you, hidden and silent in the realm of the root system.  Hidden from your sight, but active and powerful in your growth. 

My Children, I give you this illustration because I want you to realize that you are only a very small part of the large whole - only a branch on the tree.  I want to give you a conception of the Infiniteness of your God.  Your family is a small part of God's masterpiece.  Your home is your castle. 

Invite Me, the Protectress of Families, to be itsí watch guard. 

Thank you for your attentiveness to My Messages. 

09-25-91 Rosary Mound Do not scatter in fear in the days to come upon you 

MY BELOVED LITTLE ONES, 

Come - Gather around your Mother.  Danger surrounds you.  Satan is lurking everywhere spreading his venom, blackening the earth. 

Run to your Mother.  Cling to My Garment, clasp My Hand.  I am really here on the earth for you during these days of darkness. 

The devil has come, filled with rage because he knows that there is little time left for him to spread error and destruction. 

Do not be running about excitedly saying to yourselves, What should we do?  To whom should we go?  Where should we turn in these times of confusion and danger? 

My children, I have been visiting the earth so long to protect you, to be your Refuge in these days for which I have prepared you. 

So, do not scatter in fear in the days to come upon you. Fly to Me just as a frightened child would run to his mother. 

The beginning of the birth pangs ushering in the Second Advent have begun.  Stay close to Me - I need you just as you need Me. 

My persecuted ones in the East have much to suffer through bloodshed and violence.  My blind children in the West have much to suffer from within, front moral decay reaching itsí height in the silent killing of abortion. 

This parallel path of destruction has been masterminded by My adversary. 

The East will bear the bloody wounds of My Son.  The West will bear the equally torturous wounds of My Heart suffered during the Passion of My Son. 

Please pray that these days of this scourge of fire pass swiftly.  Pray and fast as never before for all of My children of the Earth to seek refuge in My heart and be saved. 

I beg you to pray for all of my beloved children of Medjugorje whom I and My Son have selected to be a beacon for the world.

PRAY!  Hold tightly to these weapons which I have armed you.

10-02-91 Rosary Mound God's justice will descend upon the earth with a swiftness that will engulf many
 

My Beloved Chosen Remnant - 

Realize the great privilege that God has bestowed upon the world, especially to you, My faithful children, for allowing your Mother to speak to you, to be with you in these decisive days - of battle and victory. 

I come to you tonight with the heavy heart of a Mother who cries for her children.  Our God is a Mighty God.  His transcendence spans the universe.  He is all knowing, all loving, all merciful.  My Children, His omnipotence also calls for justice.  His justice will descend upon the earth with a swiftness that will engulf many.  It is for these that I cry.  It is for these that I persistently beg your prayers and sacrifices. 

In His Infinite Mercy, God has always sent prophets to warn His people.  I am the Prophetess of the Lord.  I am with you to invite - to lead - to protect - to dispense His grace from the Treasury of His Bounty.  Draw from Me.  Be attentive to My Invitations to Grace - to salvation - not only for yourselves, but for your brothers and sisters. 

Tonight, I leave you with a serious message - a serious invitation. LIVE IN HIS GRACE - DAY BY DAY - EVEN  HOUR BY HOUR.  You do not know when the swift hand of Godsí Justice will fall. 

Guard your conduct, especially keeping a strict guard on your tongue.  Its sharpness cuts like a razor and severs relationships.  My Children, be attentive to temptations of the tongue.  Cease in this sin which tears down the  Body of My Son.  Rather, encourage one another.  Build up the Kingdom of God among you. 

Again, I invite you, even beg you - STAY RECONCILED WITH God DAY BY DAY - HOUR BY HOUR. 

Stay awake, on guard in these tumultuous days which are upon you. 

I love you.  Thank you for your attentiveness to My Voice.
 

10-06-91 Family Rosary God's most precious gift to mankind is the gift of life 

My Beloved Children, 

Godís most precious gift to mankind is the gift of life.  All life is an expression and .an extension of Godís Omnipotence - His very Being. 

Satan has chosen to defile life at itsí most innocent stage because herein lies the very essence of the God-Life.  Satan has seduced many with his lies regarding the silent massacre of the innocent. 

My blind children believe they are living in freedom as they continue the onslaught within the sanctuary of the womb.  When, in truth, they are shackled in the most deadening of bondages - hardness of heart. 

My faithful, continue to pray and fast for the innocent unborn.  God will not be mocked, blasphemed much longer.  Woe to My children of the earth when the ugly face of Satan is unmasked and the truth regarding this hideous crime, comes to light. 

In those days when truth shines like the sun for all to behold, there will be much wailing and despair among Satan'sí cohorts.  Godís Justice will rain from the heavens in torrents having no mercy on the murderous lot.  My babies are crying for vengeance and their destruction will be avenged. 

Your prayers, sacrifices and efforts are the silent weapons that will bring to light, the truth. 

Persevere.  Pray.  Stand with Me, your Mother against this degradation of life, this silent killer. 

Godís chosen will prevail with Me, their Mother. 

My special blessing goes,  this night, to all who fight against abortion.  My Motherly Arms enfold you, pulling you all close to My Heart.

10-13-91 Family Rosary Three words for you to focus on 

October 13, 1991  CHURCH  (FAMILY ROSARY) 

My Children, tonight you are all embraced in My Peace. 

I come with three words for you to focus on:  PRAY, PERSEVERE,  BELIEVE. 

Pray with Me most fervently, especially for your country.  Satan has master-minded a path of destruction that the whole world is on and often goes undetected and unfelt, but very real and hideous.  Even now, your country is confronting a situation in which the ugly face of Satan is being unmasked through moral decadence, whose stench has reached the highest heavens.  People are confounded.  My Children, this plight is masterminded by Satan himself!  Pray, pray with Me fervently that he continues to be found out and, thus overcome. 

Persevere.  Persevere on the narrow path to holiness.  Persevere in the duties of your state in life with sacrifices and prayer joined to Mine. 

Believe.  Believe in the silent presence of God in your hearts.  Believe in Him when you cannot feel Him (His presence).  Believe in My presence as though you can see Me because I am indeed, among you in a most unique way.  In fact, I am in the world in a unique way today. 

There is a battle raging in the world.  The army is great whose head is Satan.  I ask you to pray for more consecrated souls and more fervent and devout souls to join in My Army.  When My Army increases to the proportions as set by God, then My Immaculate Heart will triumph..  Pray for more consecrated and devout souls.

10-16-91 Rosary Mound I come to remind you to live your lives with the simplicity of little children
 

MY BELOVED CHILDREN, 

I come to you as a Mother most grateful to you, My consecrated ones, for your prayer, perseverance and belief. 

Be filled with joy because you have found favor with God.  Thus He grants Me the privilege of speaking to. you. 

My Beloved, I know you carry many trials - heartaches, concerns in your hearts.  I know it is sometimes difficult to believe that God knows and cares about all of them.  I know it is often difficult to believe that I share them all with you and have since God gave Me to the world as itsí Mother. 

I come to remind you to live your lives with the simplicity of little children, with trust, abandonment to your Heavenly Mother.  If you are not striving to live in this way, how can you help Me to evangelize the world?  How can you focus on the intentions of My Heart when you are so heavily laden with your own? 

O children of My Heart, we have much work to do before the second advent and the transformation of the hearts of mankind, for whom My Son gave His Life!  We have so little time! 

People must believe that Godís Love surpasses sin and weakness.  Forgiveness and Mercy are freely given to all.  People must believe and claim Godís ineffable Forgiveness, Mercy and Love.  Only then can hearts be transformed becoming the perfect Image of Christ. 

Help Me to bring this message of Love to your world.  I love you with the tenderest of Motherly Love. 

Go in the peace of Jesus.
 

10-20-91 Family Rosary Prayer is the key to God 

My Beloved Children, 

Again, I ask of you to emphasize prayer in your lives - as individuals and as family. 

Prayer is the key to God, the key that unlocks the treasures of the kingdom that await you in the realm of the spirit. 

My children, pray always, consecrate yourselves each day in the morning, raise your minds and hearts throughout the day to God, to Me, the safe-keeper of all your prayers, all your treasures.  Remember, I present them all as bouquets representing your family to Almighty God. 

Prayer should be the last words on your lips in the evening as you commit yourselves to Godís safekeeping. 

My Beloved, Holy Mass is the greatest of prayers.  Attend Mass often as a family.  Pray the Mass with your hearts.  when you attend Mass with your hearts, Our Beloved Savior looks down upon you from His Cross, now glorious and shining, smiles at you with a look of the most piercing of loves and calls you all His Beloved. 

Pray, My chosen ones.  Pray ceaselessly until we meet face to face.

10-23-91 Rosary Mound I rely on you to aid Me in the work of Salvation 

My Faithful Ones, 

I rely on you and all of My Cenacles of Prayer to aid Me in the work of Salvation by your prayers as well as by your witness. 

I come to ask you to make My Peace Plan as set forth by God better known in your community - to all with whom you interact. 

It is to your hearts that I have revealed My Motherly Love and the intentions of My own Heart. Attentiveness to My Peace Mission is vital for the triumph of My Immaculate Heart, the final victory over sin. 

My Children, many still do not recognize Me as the Key to My Son's Heart, in these latter days. Many boast a pious devotion to Me, often turning to Me in times of need. Many utter My Name in song and prayer; yet not comprehending the greatness of My Mission on Earth today! Many of My children still do not realize that the Hearts of My Son and I are intertwined. 

How grievous a mistake to think that Love for the Son does not include Love for the Mother who bore Him! How distorted the faith vision of those who believe that Love for the Mother excludes Love for the Son! 

My Children cannot approach My Heart without also being bathed in the Light and the Love of My Son! My Dear Ones, both Hearts are interlocked. 

God has chosen you. He has set you upon a lofty precipice where He has allowed you, through your Queen of peace, a broader view of His Kingdom, a Kingdom that begins in your hearts. He has given you a vision that has taken you beyond the obstructions of the world. He has given you a glimpse of the spiritual warfare in which the world is engaged. He has given you a glimpse of the final hope for the world through the invitation of your Queen of Peace. 

My Beloved, I invite you to accept the responsibility that comes with this Vision. Won't you help me to present THE TWO HEARTS, TOGETHER, TO YOU LOST AND LONELY WORLD. LET US HASTEN VICTORY UPON THE EARTH! 

10-27-91 Family Rosary I come to keep you ever mindful of the treasure you possess within yourselves and your families 

My Beloved Families - 

God permits Me to come among you in a unique way to keep you ever mindful of the treasure you posses within yourselves and your families. 

My dear ones , The Kingdom of God exists among you. You cannot comprehend the greatness of this Mystery! God loves His children so much, that He, not only dwells among you, He also dwells ( ) you! - through sanctifying grace. 

Although you cannot fully grasp the wonder of this truth, you must guard against losing this 'Pearl of Great Worth. Your enemy prowls the earth seeking to snatch away your God-given gifts through your free will. He is especially vengeful toward God's faithful and gifted. 

I come to help you preserve the God-Life within you to the end. 

You must never let your defense down. Never permit your hearts to become cold or even lukewarm. Remember, God's gifts to you are great. Your response must be whole-hearted. 

Stay alert, My children. Let prayer and Holy Mass be the hub of your family life from which all other activities rotate. 

Your Heavenly Mother loves you and thanks you for your attentiveness to My Voice and supplications. Go in the peace of Jesus! 

10-30-91 Rosary Mound I invite you to be with your Jesus in His Passion this week 

I invite you to be with Jesus in His Passion this week. In your prayer, make a special effort to visit Him on His Steps to Calvary. 

My Beloved, although His work of Redemption on Calvary is completed, He suffers anew in His children and in His Church. His Passion continues day by day at the hands of evildoers and those who do not acknowledge Him or His Perfect Sacrifice. Daily, His Sacred Heart is crowned with the thorns of blasphemy, His Sacred Face is spit upon with sacrilegious Communions and the misuse of His Holy Name. The unbloody scourging still continues - by the many faces of sin, by the subversion of Truth, in His Church - the Truth for which He lived and died. 

My Chosen, reflect on your Crucified Jesus, this week. See His swollen Face, His Bloody Body - again - in the Martyrdom of His Church. 

My Children, Pray and Believe. Believe that the Church of Jesus Christ will prevail against the present day reign of terror. I am blessing you with God's choicest riches. 

11-03-91 Family Rosary Remain on steady ground in the midst of chaos 

My Dear Families, 

Remain on steady ground in the midst of the chaos as the many faces of sin are being uprooted and exploited before you. 

I am near. Abide in Me! When you do - you abide also in Jesus. Tonight, I am wrapping you in My blanket of protection. 

My Children, you know your world is under siege - by evil and its' master. My heart aches for My children, for My Sons' persecuted Church! 

I come to you to calm the fears and lead you on the Way to Peace. You, My chosen, are arrayed for battle. Trials will come. Anticipate them. Confront them just as a well prepared soldier confronts the battlefield expecting victory. When trials come - do not be overwhelmed. Rather, clothe yourselves with the armor I have recommended to you - prayer and sacrifice. Just as gold is tested in fire, so too, must be the gold of your faith to be found real and enduring. 

So, My Beloved, endure to the end with resignation to His Divine Will. You cannot comprehend the great hope to which you've been called. There will come a day when every tear will be wiped from your eyes, every pain, delivered - forever. 

When that glorious day comes, you will see that not one tear that you have shed nor pain that you have bore in this lifetime were too much to have given to Him - who have His life for you - just for you. 

Be wrapped in My blanket of hope, tonight. Hope - for the approaching triumph of good over evil, love over hate. Hope - for the Peace to come, that was meant to be when the world was created. 

I, your Queen of Peace, bring you Hope in the midst of adversity. 

11-06-91 Wednesday Cenacle I ask you to respond to God's invitation to be active participants in God's Plan to save mankind
 

My Dear Children, 

I come tonight to ask you to respond to Godís invitation to be active participants in Godís Plan to save mankind.  Actively respond, dear ones, in your individual life circumstances as well as through the prayer you are called to in this Cenacle. 

Your role in Godís Plan is great.  To fulfill your role - you must become little.  I, your Mother, have drawn you to My Heart to teach you the way of littleness so that you will become great in the Kingdom.  You are My little children whom I press close to My Heart where I nurture, love and guide you to mission. 

My children, it is time you recognize your poverty, your nakedness, your littleness in the illuminative Light of God.  All that you have, all that you are represent Godís gifts to you for the purpose of fulfilling all that God has ordained for you.  Apart from Godís grace, you can do nothing, be nothing, possess nothing of true value.  Every prayer you say, all the good that you do is the result of an influx of Godís grace dispensed through Me. 

My Beloved, I tell you all of this so you can know your littleness, living  in holy humility so that God can be God in your lives. 

Children, remain united as My Cenacle of Prayer, loving one another.  Recognize Jesus in one another.  When you see Jesus in your brothers and sisters your hearts will grow in Mercy and Love. 

In this Light of Christ, I ask you to hold in your hearts in a special way, with Me, your Mother, our beloved martyrs in Yugoslavia, who are suffering greatly, dying at the hands of evildoers.  Join your prayers and sacrifices with those of My agonizing  Heart begging God to shorten the onslaught of this deadly venom pouring forth upon the Church from the mouth of Satan.  Pray that your Country be spared the atrocity of war. 

Hold fast to prayer, believing it is I, your tender Mother, who leads you to Jesus through and despite your littleness.
 

11-10-91 Family Rosary The route you must travel is the Way of The Cross
 

My Beloved Families - 

The Light of the Holy Spirit has shown upon you. God has been good. You should know His Heart is aflame with Love for you, the families attached to My Heart. 

My children, you have all been marked with the sign of the Cross. The sum and substance of Godís Will for you is service, worship and evangelization, that is, to bear witness to the Light of Truth - in a darkened world. This is your Way to the Resurrection, to Eternal Life. 

The route you must travel is the Way of the Cross. Be comforted, My children, when trials surround you. I, your Mother, accompany you. When darkness, pain and failure impress their sting upon your hearts, remember I am with you. Learn from them. Be conscious of the Infinite value of the Cross - the sign of Salvation. Hold hope in your hearts - the light of a new day looms upon the horizon. 

This week, I invite you to take a closer look at the life of Jesus. Learn from Him your role of service and evangelization. Serve and bear witness to the Truth, My Beloved, by the way you love one another in the context of your Christian family living.
 

11-13-91 Wednesday Cenacle The world lies sleeping, unaware, as Satan roams the earth trampling underfoot all that is Sacred
 

My Children, 

Wonít you share with Me, your Mother, the burden of My heavy Heart for My Beloved, persecuted Croatian children? 

See them upon the Cross with their Savior.  Hear, with Me, their cries of pain and anguish. See their broken, bloody bodies laid bare upon the fields, their blood flowing in rivers across the land covering a multitude of sins. See all that they hold dear - their homes, belongings, their heritage wiped away with the sweep of Satansí deadly arm. 

See this Mothersí Heart again pierced with sorrow as Her Son continues His crucifixion in His members. 

The world lies sleeping, unaware, as Satan roams the earth trampling underfoot all that is Sacred. 

The events I foretold concerning the Church in travail are unfolding. Darkness has covered the earth and the darkness is deep. 

You, My Chosen, have been awakened and prepared for this day. Stay awake with Me at the foot of their Cross. 

PRAY     FAST   BELIEVE
 

11-17-91 Family Rosary I have been sent to aid you in the process of sanctification
 

My Beloved Families, 

God is the author of your lives, your lives as family. Your families were in the Mind and Heart of God since the beginning of time. 

God desires to receive your lives back again, sanctified in the Blood of His Lamb. 

I have been sent to aid you in this process of sanctification. 

My children, you know your lives are not your own. They have been bought at a high price. Desire to present them back to God, whole, renewed and holy. Desire Holiness. 

My Son will come again to reclaim His Bride, the Church. The Bride must be unblemished, sanctified on that glorious day when Jesus comes again as King. 

My dear children, do not fear the day of purification. Rather, welcome it. It precludes the return of the Bridegroom who will come to reclaim His Bride. 

Remain united to Me. Recognize My interior presence within and among you. 

You, My children of the Light are a part of the great work of sanctification of the Church by the Holy Spirit.
 

11-20-91 Wednesday Cenacle Pray and Fast for those who will be ravaged by the storm of evil already descended upon the earth
 

Peace to you - the children of My predilection! 

Oh, how your Mother wishes to cling to you now in these dreadful days of the predicted apostacy! I desire to gather all of you together close to My anguished Heart, to comfort Me with your prayers. 

Many of My children, your brothers and sisters, are living in great danger, floundering in utter darkness. A cloud of haze has descended upon the Magisterium of the Church making clear vision difficult. The seeds of confusion, complacency, error and division have erupted into weeds that are now rising up to choke the fruitful flowers of zealous love for God and His Church, truth, wisdom and unity. Faithfulness to the Holy Father is rapidly disintegrating. 

What does a loving Mother do when the approaching storm threatens to uproot her home, putting her children in harms way? She quickly gathers them together, shelters them in her embrace, protects them with her very life. 

My children, Come! The storm is upon you. Come, let us console one another. My mantle is spread out around you all - enfolding, protecting you. 

For your part - Pray and Fast - for your brothers and sisters who will be ravaged by the storm of evil already descended upon the earth. 

Stay close to My Immaculate Heart. Go in Peace - remaining always mindful of My Presence. 

11-27-91 Wednesday Cenacle I come to you as a beggar, pleading for your hearts
 

11-27-91 WEDNESDAY CENACLE 

My dear Chosen Cenacle, 

I invite you to open your hearts to God. Let them be filled to overflowing with thankfulness for He has looked with favor upon you. He has released the bounty of His blessings upon you. 

God longs for your consecrated hearts, offered through Me, to the Everlasting Kingship of Jesus. 

The time of Godís visitation is upon you - through Me, Your Mother. I am with you, My children, loving, leading you all to the Triune God. My children, please know that there are no least nor greatest among you. All are equal, the rich and the poor, in the sight of God. 

I come to you as a beggar - pleading for your hearts, on behalf of My Son, whose Own Heart has been opened with a spear, whose arms have stretched out, bidding the whole world - Come! 

I make many appearances in your world - your homes, churches, in your fields, on your mountains throughout cities and villages. Through these many apparitions, I come, I am with you then I am gone again. To you, My angels, I wish to say: The visitation you must eagerly await and ready yourselves for is not the visitation that occurs in time and space, where I am here today and gone tomorrow. Rather, await My visitation within your hearts - the visitation that is perpetual. When I come to your hearts, My loves, I come to stay - forever. 

This is the gift, the visitation that I offer you tonight. I call you again to intimacy with Me, with Jesus. 

I call you to know that My Presence within you is exceedingly more exalted than My appearances around you. 

I call you to rise above the tangibles of this world and to set your sights on the higher gifts; humility and charity being the unblemished, shining gems that fill up every crack and crevice in your hearts, never leaving you wanting. 

I call you to respond to My Presence within you so that you may be filled with Peace and Joy, despite and throughout the turmoil which surrounds you. 

God desires your sanctification. I, your Mother, shall lead you thus. What holiness can be achieved, My Sons and Daughters, if you could but hear the tender whisperings of the Voice of your Mother and your God within you. 

PRAY, MY CHILDREN, THAT THIS WAY OF YOUR SANCTIFICATION BE ACHIEVED. YOU ARE THE DELIGHT AND PRIDE OF THIS MOTHERíS HEART. YOU ARE TO BE THE RAREST AND THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MOST FRAGRANT OF FLOWERS GROWING IN THE HEAVENLY GARDEN. 

GO IN THE PEACE AND THE LOVE OF JESUS! 

12-01-91 Family Rosary Jesus is coming in a special way this Christmas
 

  (MESSAGE TO THE CHILDREN) 

My precious little ones - 

Jesus is coming again in a special way this Christmas. He has come every Christmas in a special way ever since that first Christmas of so long ago. 

My little ones, do not think that the story of Jesusí birth told over and over is just another story of an event that happened long ago. I have come here tonight to tell you that Jesus comes with fresh new rays of hope every Christmas. I have come here to tell you that the Christmas story lives on - bringing new gifts to all of you - to all whose hearts are open to receive them. 

My angels, I am your heavenly Mother. I wish that your young lives be filled with joy and laughter. I am happy when you are happy. 

I want to reveal to you a heavenly secret. Jesus brings you gifts at Christmas, too. They are very special gifts for that part of you called your soul - that part of you that will one day go to heaven to be with Jesus forever. 

My children, gifts are good because they bring fun into your young lives, but gifts are soon gone - lost, broken or outgrown. Jesusí gifts are yours to keep - forever - If you want them. They are never broken, too big or too small. They just keep on growing in your soul. They bring you joy and peace -forever. 

Before I leave you tonight, I ask you for a favor. As the world prepares for Christmas, will you say often: 

Come into my small heart, Jesus.
Bring me your special gifts
To make my small heart a big heart,
Filled with love for You,
My Christmas Baby King!

Thank you for having responded to My call.
 

12-08-91 Family Rosary I am the Star sent by God to illuminate the night in this age
 

My Children, 

Pray ever more fervently for purity of heart and a clear Vision of Jesus. It is only to the pure of heart that Godís designs are recognizable. 

Satan has detracted many away from the Pure Light of Bethlehemsí Star pointing them to the artificial glitter of the world. 

My families - Bethlehemsí Star shown in the heavens for all to see. Only a few recognized it. Only a few followed itsí lead, only a few found the King - the Babe wrapped in humility. 

God has chosen another Star to light the way for His Sonís second coming. Again, many do not recognize itsí Light. Many do not follow Itsí direction. 

I am the Star sent by God to illuminate the night in this age. I have chosen you, My families, to be My lampstands - helping Me to mark the way through the Second Advent. 

My chosen parents, these are dangerous days. Satan continues to detract the world, especially the little ones away from the Pure Light of Bethlehemís Star. Guide your little ones to the crib of My Son. 

The world must arrive at His Crib before it beholds Him upon His Throne. 

Lead the way. Be a Light. Pray fervently. Be filled with joy. He loves you so. 

Go in Peace.

12-11-91 Wednesday Cenacle I come to you so long to prepare the hearts of mankind to receive their King - worthily
 

My Chosen sons & daughters, 

Seek the Lord, your God fervently - with an undivided heart. 

I come to you so long to prepare the heart of mankind to receive their King - worthily. 

My children, the world is far from God. My heart bleeds because of this. Even His chosen pious ones do not give to God all that they are, all that they possess. Rather, they offer to the Almighty God - scraps - not from their substance; but from their excess. They give with trepidation and hesitation. My loved ones, you can only give the honor and glory due to our Supreme God by offering Him your whole hearts, detached from worldly matters. Oh, if you could only fathom the Supremacy of God, you would see that your divided hearts are a grave insult to His Majesty, His Omnipotence. 

My chosen cenacle, only Jesus can break the chains that bind your hearts. He sees your brokenness, your enslavement. He came that all might be Freed from the shackles of slavery. 

Pray, My children, that blind men awaken to their decadence, to their enslavement and turn to God, who Is their only hope to freedom. Before men are willing to change directions and be converted to God, to Truth; they must realize their spiritual poverty and reach out from their tombs of captivity. 

They must desire God as their Savior. 

I come to invite the world to Light, to Love, to Freedom, an existence that belongs only to God alone and all who respond to His invitation. 

With your prayers, sacrifices - You, My Chosen help Me to lead His flock to Freedom, to new Life in Jesus. 

Thank you for responding to My requests. 

12-15-91 Family Rosary God showers an earthly peace upon the earth through the birth of the Christ-Child
 

Be at Peace, My chosen families, 

 Jesus' Peace, His blessings abound in your homes, in the hearts of your families. 

 God showers an unearthly peace upon the earth through the birth of the Christ-Child.  This special blessing from Heaven descends upon all whose hearts are open to receive Him, every Christmas. 

 Many parts of the world are filled with turmoil and   Godlessness and cannot receive the Peace of Christmas. You, My Beloved, must be My messengers announcing this Precious gift by the way in which you prepare for the Coming of Jesus. 

 How often I want to warn you!  Satan plots to snatch the great gift of peace away from My children and he often succeeds.  He knows that to experience this Peace is to enter into the Kingdom of God.  He seeks to distract you especially in this Blessed Season by sowing in you seeds of anxiety, frivolity and materialism. 

 This week I ask you to prepare for Christmas by seeking Jesus through a prayer of silence. 

 Withdraw for a time from the hectic pace which surrounds you.  Enter into the Nativity scene.  Jesus was born in obscurity in the silence of the night apart from the frenzy of activity.   In the hearts of men, He is born again under the same circumstances. 

 My families, ponder His humble, quiet Birth. 

 Receive His Gift of Peace!  Bring it into your world.
 

12-18-91 Wednesday Cenacle The Birth of the Savior is about to be celebrated the world over
 

My Dear Cenacle, 

 The Birth of the Savior is about to be celebrated the world over. 

 0, My Children, the holiness, the supremacy of that Blessed night!  God takes the form of a slave - for the whole of mankind - who turned Him away, inn after inn. 

 0, the horror of the reality of the coldness, the rejection. 

 My people, My Beloved Children, I bear Him for the world continually only to find cold hearts that have no room for their King. 

 Turn to Him, as He again makes His entrance into the world by way of the hearts that receive Him.  Prepare for His entrance with prayer and thanksgiving and selfless love. 

 Turn to Me, the Mother of your God, your Mother who prepares the way for you to receive Him. 

 Prepare to receive the Peace, to which the world can never allude. 

 You search for answers, for happiness, for justice, and hope - in the confusion that comprises the world.  You look for your treasures in the marketplace; but to no avail. 

 I invite you, each one of you, My chosen Cenacle, to retreat from the hustle and bustle of the marketplace and follow the pure light of faith to the manger.  My children, find the Prince of Peace in the unexpected, apart from the beaten path, in the faces of the poor, the humble. 

 Come, I will take you to Him.  Your Hearts will want for nothing more.  Come!  He loves you so and He is so cold. Be the straw that warms Him.
 

12-18-91 Vision A Funnel
 

Mary showed me a vision of what looked like a funnel - one end was very narrow, one large.  She invited me to look through the very narrow end.  Through it I was immense light.  The light was many faceted.  The impression I got from this view was as though I was looking into a very clean, clear and bright chandelier.  The light was refracting creating a glittered array of silver and white - very bright.  Another analogy would be an array of bright twinkling stars. 

Then she seemed to invert the funnel so that through the narrow end the light from Heaven filtered through that narrow space and beamed down shedding its rays on all of us as we were praying. 

Our Lady said that we were children of the Light and that this heavenly light was our Christmas gift from Her.  She said that She loves us very much and asked us to always walk in that Light.
 

12-22-91 Family Rosary The world continues to celebrate Christmas in great darkness
 

Peace to you, My precious families - as you follow the Light of Faith to the manger.  Be thankful to God for this 'Pearl of Great Worth' given to you. 

 My friends, follow the star of your faith as you find Him in all things.  Follow the Star until you are secure in Him at last in Paradise. 

 Rejoice and be glad because God has chosen you to be recipients of His sanctifying gifts.  The gifts of the kings offered Him to long ago, He has multiplied and with them, He feeds His flock with gifts of prayer, faith, love and long suffering. 

 Be joyful!  You have observed Me, your Mother, the bright star that has arisen in the East.  I will lead you to Him. 

 My families,  I beg you to continue to pray for a world yet in great darkness.  Your family rosaries, said as a group rise up like incense before the Face of God - opening the reservoirs of His Mercy, His Mercy which flows over a parched land. 

 The world continues to celebrate Christmas in great darkness, amidst materialism, confusion and devoid of Its' true meaning. 

 You must pray that men, women and children the world over, open their hearts to God.  Jesus must be recognized in all things especially the poor, the lonely, the oppressed.  The bright star of faith must penetrate every human heart  Jesus must be born within.  Only then will Christmas be rich in meaning and only then will God truly be made flesh among men - as Christmas was intended to be! 

 I bring you tonight, the Peace of the Christ-child and Light to guide you on your way. 

12-29-91 Family Rosary I have come to bring you peace and unity to your families - to all families
 

My Beloved Families, 

My pervading presence among you is the very heart of God's wonderful plan of Mercy for this generation. 

My families, I am among you in a profound way! 

I have come to bring peace and unity to your families - to all families. 

I have come with a message of peace - to dispel quarrels, indifference, and bitterness among you. 

I have come to bridge gaps that divide - especially within My families. 

My Beloved, I have told you that there will be no lasting peace within nations until there is peace within families, within hearts.  My children, the way to unity and peace - of the heavenly nature - within your family is through family prayer.  Prayer is your only path to peace.  Prayer is the only answer to the problems and difficulties that arise within your homes. 

I invite you to a renewed resolve to prayer - especially to prayer as a family group. 

My children, never loose heart for the things of God, especially prayer.  I am with you, leading you to a knowledge of the Heart of Jesus.  BELIEVE!  PERSEVERE!  The Kingdom of God is a whisper away.  The Kingdom of God is within you. 

I am blessing your family in a special way this night on the feast day of your Perfect Model - The Holy Family.

The significance of the colors in Church - white and gold 

Our Lady said that this parish has been chosen by God for many special blessings from God because of the faith and love of many generations.  The gold symbolizes our purification process.  Just as gold is tried and tested in the furnace before it becomes a precious gem, so too are we tested in the fiery furnace of life to become God's precious gems.  The white symbolizes purity.  We, too, will become white as the snow after our purification.
