The “Littlest Way” of Love: Who Was Sister Mary Consolata Betrone?

“To the little ones I tell everything.”

I am Goodness Itself; Don’t be afraid to speak. For from the depths of this Infinite Goodness,

I am humble, I am meek. And in it, your heart will gain strength when weak… Indeed, I am your Good Father, And to and through your voice I desire to speak!

“I choose the weak and helpless in the world to accomplish My greatest missions.” Jesus tells us in the Messages of Holy and Divine Love. “It is through these most unlikely little ones that My Glory is able to shine and My Father’s Will find fulfillment.” Indeed, Pierina Lorenzina Giovanna Betrone was one of these “unlikely little ones” that Our Lord used to change the world forever. Born in Saluzzo, Italy on April 6th, 1903, Pierina seemed to live an ordinary childhood by all accounts. Yet at just 13 years old, something extraordinary happened to her. While she was hurrying to do her errands in the village, she was overcome by an unexpected spiritual fervor and an intense prayer suddenly surged forth from her heart: “My God, I love you!” This was beginning of her remarkable spiritual experiences with the Lord, and indeed a foreshadowing of her future life and vocation. For on February 28, 1930, the very day of the Ceremony of taking the Veil as a cloistered Franciscan Capuchin, Pierina heard Jesus speak to her again: “I do not call you for more than this: an act of continual love.” She had chosen the name Sister Maria Consolata, which means “Consoler,” as she was to be like Our Lady, the Consoler of the agonizing Heart of Christ, not through heroic deeds or great penances, but with an inner, silent, steady, surging stream of acceptance, of trust, of love.

In her early years of convent life, Sister Consolata often carried with her the great spiritual classic “The Story of a Soul” by Saint Therese, as she was a devoted disciple of the Little Flower. Interestingly, Jesus Himself told her on November 27th, 1935: “Little Saint Thérèse once wrote: “Why is it not given to me, O Jesus, to relate Your ineffable condescension to all little souls? I have a feeling that if the impossible were to happen and You were able to find a soul still weaker than my own, it would please You to heap upon her still greater favors, if only that soul would abandon herself with complete faith to Your infinite mercy.” Well, I have found that still weaker soul who had abandoned herself with complete faith to My infinite mercy: it is you, Consolata, and through you I will perform marvels which will far exceed your fondest desires!”

Sister Consolata’s spiritual director, Father Lorenzo Sales, (a member of the Congregation of Consolata Missionaries) played a key role in the unfolding of Jesus’ plan to gift the unceasing act of love to the world. Compiling and commenting on various experts of her spiritual diary, Fr. Lorenzo wrote Jesus Appeals to the World, a book detailing Sister Consolata’s life and spirituality. “Sister Consolata’s particular vocation was one of love,” he explains, “to round out, so to speak, the Little Flower’s doctrine of the Little Way of Love by giving it a concrete form which could be practiced and achieved by all souls who feel themselves called to it.” This new “Littlest Way of Love” which compliments and completes St. Therese’s “Little Way” consists essentially in the following:

The Three Main Points of The Littlest Way of Love
1. To offer an unceasing act of love from the heart, with the greatest possible constancy, purity, and intensity, in times of consolation and desolation alike
2. To have a smiling “yes” for everyone, seeing and serving Christ in each person He sends our way, the loving and unloving alike
3. To have a grateful “yes” for everything, accepting with love and trust all God permits in our lives, the good and bad alike, as well as complying with His requests for any and all sacrifices

These three points can be summarized into the following formula: “Never omit one act of love, one act of charity, or one sacrifice from one Communion to the next.” If this sounds intimidating or even impossible to you, fear not! For Our Lord assures us that it is precisely in loving Him through the unceasing act of love that our souls are fortified with the strength, grace, and disposition necessary to make the other two points easy. After all, in His own words, “Consolata, establish within yourself a continuous ‘Jesus, Mary, I love You. Save souls!’ Consider that it’s the only resolution that will allow you to say ‘YES’ to all of my requests for sacrifices.” Sister Consolata herself testifies to this truth when she writes, “The ceaseless act of love is more powerful than any suffering: so, to place myself above suffering, I must not cease to love.”

Yet what does living out the unceasing act of love actually look like? An act of love of God can express itself with different words for different souls at different times. “My God, I love Thee!” for example, were St. Therese’s last words. Sometimes, no words are necessary. St. Fasutina describes certain moments in her Diary, for examples, where she was utterly entranced in the silent, loving gaze of Jesus: “…I have long talks with him without saying a word.” (411). Yet, in Sister Consolata’s case, Jesus actually simplified her exact means for loving Him, by explicitly giving her a short and simple formula to do so. This formula began as “Jesus, I love You!” then later on Jesus added, “Jesus, Mary, I love You!” before finally completing it with “Jesus, Mary, I love You! Save souls!” These seven simple words contain within them the full fulfilment of the Commandments of Holy Love by encompassing love of God, love of the Blessed Virgin, and love of all souls, all in the same breath and heartbeat. “Tell Me,” Jesus once asked Sr. Consolata, “what prayer can anyone say that is more beautiful? ‘Jesus, Mary, I love You! Save souls!’” “This ‘Act of Love’ includes all souls;” He explained to her on another occasion, “the souls in purgatory, the innocent, the suffering, the sinful, the dying, and even your own poor soul.”

Like any good religious, Sister Consolata prayed a variety of prayers every day, from the Way of the Cross, novenas to Our Lady, and of course, intimate and free-form conversation with Our Lord. Yet she was instructed to pray this most fruitful act of love prayer as fervently and frequently as possible from morning until evening, except when she couldn’t be actively focused on praying the act of love as laid out by the formula. During all those times, such as when she was engaged in writing or speaking or praying in other ways, Jesus promised to continue the unceasing act of love for her Himself: “…when you are conversing with Me or when you are writing or meditating, the act of love continues. I credit you with it just the same even though the heart is obliged to keep silent at those times!”

Truly, for Sister Consolata the bar was set very high. Jesus wanted everything from His little Consolata, every action, every word, and even every thought, so that His Spouse might become perfect and attain the glorious triple-fold virginity of the greatest of saints, that of the heart, the body, and the spirit. Yes, Jesus wanted her love for Him to be of the highest degree of purity, so as to purge her of any other affection, of continuity, so as to protect her from any waste of time, and of intensity, so as to prevent her from holding anything back from Him. And it was precisely by the practice of the unceasing act of love that her love would be gradually perfected. As Servant of God, Father Adolph Petit, SJ, once explained, “Just as one learns to read by reading, and to write by writing, so does one learn to love Our Lord by multiplying one’s acts of love for Him. Each one of these acts is as it were an armful of kindling, to be thrown on the fire; it renders the flame of love more ardent.”  

Of course, Sister Consolata experienced many falls and failures within the first few years of her practice of the unceasing act of love. Over time, however, through the constant struggle against her natural inclinations and consistent practice of her childlike reliance upon Jesus and His ever-abundant grace, her love eventually reached a truly heroic level of purity, continuity, and intensity! According to her spiritual director, Sister Consolata managed, with more or less success, to persevere in her unceasing act for about 17 hours a day, every day, for over 10 years! He also tells us that during the entirely of her life as a religious, Sister Consolata never deliberately answered “no” any of the Lord’s requests…not even once!

 “To offer an unceasing act of virginal love in fact requires of the soul an extreme vigilance over herself,” Father Lorenzo writes, “…and the act is really impossible without controlling and renewing one’s fervor as often as possible.” These words seem to perfectly align with those Our Blessed Mother has spoken in the Messages of Holy and Divine Love: “You must constantly assess the reservoir of Holy Love in your hearts and always strive to strengthen it. By your efforts in measuring this virtue, you can increase in holiness and increase your happiness in Heaven.” In order to do this, Jesus actually taught Sister Consolata to renew her resolution of the unceasing virginal act of love every hour, in addition to making a quick particular examen of how well she had loved during that hour, marking any infidelities in her notebook. At the end of each day, she would humbly ask pardon for any of these voluntary lapses, before taking up again her song of love, without voluntarily wasting any more thoughts, moments, or efforts on her past mistakes. In order to continue onward in her fidelity to the unceasing act of love, even when she no longer heard the voice of the Lord later in her life, Sister Consolata most likely would of had to remind herself of Jesus’ encouraging words to her and divine requirements of her:

Jesus’ Words to Sister Consolata Betrone Regarding the Unceasing Act of Love
“Forget everything and everybody, and think only of loving Me more! Concentrate your every thought, every heartbeat, every silence upon this one thing: to love! Do not think of anything, anything, anything else but to love Me and to suffer with all possible love; that is sufficient.”
“Say goodbye forever to all that is created and to this world, and escape into a ceaseless act of love. You see, each has his own tastes. Here are Mine: smallness, nothingness, annihilation, but love.”
“Live, annihilated and enclosed in a single perpetual ‘Jesus, Mary, I love You. Save souls!’ Nothing, no one, must exist for you except the act of love.”
“Remain fixed in this one resolve, not to interrupt the act of love! This suffices for Me. Remain faithful to it, renew it hour by hour, and I will grant you everything, Consolata, truly everything.”
“Follow Me in a ceaseless act of love, day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute; I Myself will take care of all the rest. I Myself will provide.”
“As a little fish will die outside of water, so also will you, outside the act of love!”
“Saint John the Baptist called himself ‘a voice crying in the wilderness.’ You are to be ‘an unceasing act of love.’”
“The ceaseless act of love is your standard; defend it before the enemy (even at the cost of your life).”
“One must love one’s flag; one must defend it at all costs, love under it, and die clutching it to one’s heart, so that it may never fall into enemy hands. Do the same with your act of love! Even if it costs you an effort, give it to Me without ceasing!”
“Raise your effort to the highest pitch and, firmly determined not to lose one single act of love, take up the struggle again without wasting a backward glance at the interruption.”
“If you have fallen, raise yourself up again; if you have forgotten, then start anew; an act of love is useful for everything, at any time, and under every condition!”
“All that tempts you to turn away from the ceaseless act of love would not come from Me, but from the enemy.”
“Consolata, it matters little that the devil and your passions unleash in your soul every possible attack; do not mind thunder, storm, and lightning. Say to yourself: ‘I want to continue undismayed my act of love from one Communion to the next, that is my duty, my sole duty!’ And so, forward! Nothing else!”
“Do you think I could not grant you this continuity of love? It pleases Me to see you struggle, fall, and rise again, in short, making an effort. I like to see what you can do. And do you know what delights Me most? It is when you rise above everything unperturbed and continue your act of love!”
“Remember, Consolata, that I have not given you Nicholas [her brother], nor will I give you your uncle Felix, in reward for you penances and sacrifices, but solely because of your unceasing act of love. Remember that, for it is love that I desire from My creatures.”
“Consolata, place at one side all the acts of virtue which you could perform today, and on the other side a single day passed in a continuous act of love- I will prefer the day passed in continual love to anything else you might do or offer Me!”
“Not only is your cell for you a sanctuary where you can always find Jesus, the Sacred Heart or the Crucified, but you yourself should be a tabernacle wherever you may be. And just as you do not wish anything but the continual act of love to enter into your cell, so you too must not permit anything but the continual act of love to occupy you, no matter where you may be or in what work you may be engaged.”
“Be extremely vigilant not to permit one though to enter, not to utter a single sentence except in reply; but do not lose yourself in this effort. No! Lose yourself rather in the unceasing act of love!”
“Consolata, I have consecrated all the time which remain to you in this life into one single act of love. Now, if you were to stop loving in order to follow some other thought or utter some sentence which is not strictly necessary, you would be committing a theft of love!”
“Love Me always, through the battle and the inevitable falls; train yourself to be unimpressed by failure, but to continue, impervious, your act of love.”
“Remember that an act of love on your part can decide the salvation of a soul, its eternal salvation. So see that you don’t waste a single ‘Jesus, Mary, I love You. Save souls!’”
“Don’t lose time: every act of love is a soul! Of all the gifts, the best gift you can offer me is a day full of love.”
“You must do your utmost to offer Me the unceasing act of love, but when you fail, I will make it good. No, have no fear, I am always kind!”

WOW! Pretty amazing right? Now, it is true that Sister Consolata despised compromise, complacency, and carelessness, and was vigilant, vigorous, and valiant in her everyday interior life and ongoing response to grace. Indeed, she desired more than anything not only to love God more than He had ever been loved before, but to save souls in equal measure, no matter how much suffering it may have required (her nickname was actually “Thunder and Lightning”!). Yet it is important to keep in mind that Sister Consolata was a cloistered religious nun, specifically chosen for and raised up to the special role of victim soul, that is, a victim of divine love. Jesus expressed this when He told her, “I know that the continual act of love costs you something, particularly at certain times. But it is more meritorious so, Consolata! And then you must never forget that I have chosen you to be a victim of love!” Furthermore, Sister Consolata was called to serve as the model for all the Littlest Ones who would follow her throughout the centuries, as Jesus thus explained to her: “I want a wave of love to surge from the earth to heaven. You yourself must blaze the trail of the Littlest Way. One day you will serve a model: as the world has its eyes fixed on St. Theresa today, so will the millions of Littlest Souls turn to you.”

While all souls must truly love the Lord God above all else, with all the heart, mind, soul, and strength, not every soul is called to the carry out this Commandment with the same spirituality, vocation, or even degree of perfection. Think for a moment of St. Therese’s beautiful metaphor of each soul being a unique flower, with a specific color and special fragrance unlike any other in the garden of the Lord. “Aren’t you struck by the diversity in human creation?” Christ once questioned Bl. Gabrielle Bossis. “In heaven too, each saint differs from the other and if you are enchanted by the colors of your garden, you may be sure that paradise flashes with a myriad, many-splendored things, all for My glory.”

Therefore, let us not fall prey to the what Our Lord told St. Faustina were the “greatest obstacles of holiness,” namely “discouragement and exaggerated anxiety” when comparing ourselves to Sister Consolata. Rather, even if we too desire to become great “Littlest Ones,” following her spiritual way of loving Jesus unceasingly, perhaps we should start by to becoming humble “Little Angelets” who simply strive to make the act of love a more and more frequent practice in their everyday lives. Let us ask ourselves where we can love the Lord a little more in the duties of our day, in the faces of our neighbor, in the mysteries of the Eucharist, and of course, in the depths of our own hearts. And let us simply refuse to let the enemy’s tool of fear or worry disturb our inner peace, by believing wholeheartedly Our Lord’s powerful divine promise: “I will think of everything, even the smallest details. You think only of loving Me.”*This is precisely what Sister Consolata did. Like a child in the arms of her father, she wholeheartedly trusted that the all-seeing, all-knowing, all-loving God of all would provide everything she would possibly need in every present moment, physically, emotionally, and spiritually to bring her to the very heights of sanctity and depths of suffering, so as to win as much merit and as many souls for Heaven as possible. Her continual love for Jesus lead to an ever-deepening trust in Him, which in turn strengthened her love for Him and thus her charity for others all the more, since love is the both the root and fruit, the foundation and fullness, the principle and perfection of all the other virtues. After all, the great doctor of the Church and gentle pastor of souls St. Francis de Sales once replied to someone who told him he desired to be very humble, so as to be able to love the Lord deeply: “I however, wish to love the Lord a great deal in order to be very humble.”

Over time, Sister Consolata came to depend entirely on the act of love, not only to satisfy the Lord’s wishes of her, but to assuage the burning longing in her heart for Him. On one occasion before the tabernacle, she relates being consumed by the uncontainable desires and outbursts of love: “I felt myself pervaded by an infinite urge to love Jesus, who loves me ardently, with a love of equal ardor: and as I repeated to Jesus the infinite desire to love Him, I felt within my heart another heart: the Sacred Heart! that was able to launch Itself into the Infinite without destroying nature.”

Even towards the end of her life, Sister Consolata was well aware of her great mission to be “an apostle of apostles” and the very first of “not just thousands, but millions and millions” of Littlest Ones of both men and women alike. After all, Our Lord had expressly told her, “When your last ‘Jesus, Mary, I love You!’ will have been pronounced, I will gather it up, and through the writings about your life, I will transmit it to thousands of sinful souls who will receive and follow it in the simplicity of this way of confidence and love, and they will thus love Me.” Sister Consolata died on July 18th, 1946, but she continues her unceasing act of love with the choirs of all angels and saints, for all eternity! From her glorious throne beside the Lord Himself, she remains a powerful intercessor for us, her spiritual little brothers and sisters until the day she can welcome each one with her into Heaven, where the littlest and least shall be first and foremost. The following is the ending of a letter that she personally addressed to those future souls who would try to love Jesus during their time on earth as purely, continuously, and intensely as possible through the “Littlest Way” of Love:

“Among the obstacles which prevent you from offering Jesus the unceasing virginal act of love, Our Lord teaches us to combat three: useless thoughts, useless talk, and outside interests. As for thoughts and preoccupations, everything becomes useless from the moment that Jesus promises His Littlest One that He Himself will think of everything, even to smallest details. As for useless talk, if you speak when you not obliged to do so out of necessity, charity, or propriety, then it is a waste of time; you steal time from Love. As for extraneous interests, curiosity, etc., all these detach your spirit from one thing to which you have vowed yourself: to love Jesus unceasingly with a virginal love.

It is necessary, however, for you to realize that, to carry out the divine wishes, never to lose one act of love or one act of charity from one Communion to another, will require arduous work from your soul (sustained by grace), no small amount of time, and a generous, constant effort; above all, never let yourself become discouraged.

At every more or less voluntary infidelity, renew your determination of virginal love, and start afresh. If your fault causes you suffering, you should offer it to Jesus… as an act of love! You will see and will be able to experience with what tenderness Jesus raises you up again after each fall or infidelity, how He hastens to put you on your feet again, so that you may continue your canticle of love…

Have no fear! Jesus will aid you. He has said: I ask only one thing of you: an unceasing act of love…. Love Me, for I thirst for your love…. Love Me, and you will be happy; the more you will love Me, the happier you will be!…. Jesus keeps His word!

So, have courage! Jesus and Mary will aid you! Never have any fear, but trust and believe in the love which He has for you!

Affectionately, Sister Consolata, R.C.”

“Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:4).

A Word of Caution about the New COVID-19 Vaccines

Note: For a PDF version of the following letter, click here:

Summary:

Since its release in December of 2020, nearly half of healthcare workers have been resisting/waiting on taking the new COVID-19 vaccine. More than one third of health care workers in the US (36%) said they were doubtful about the safety and efficacy of the fast-tracked, experimental COVID-19 vaccines.

To be clear, Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines are not FDA approved but have been released under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). In the rush to release these vaccines to the general public in a matter of months, the industry-standard animal trials for the vaccine manufacturers were suspended and human clinical trials that were supposed to continue for 2 years ended prematurely (See: The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons article: “COVID-19 Vaccine Trials Ended Prematurely”).

As of May 7th, 2021, there have already tragically been a total of 4,075 deaths, 25,566 visits to the Emergency Doctor/Room, 2,475 permanent disabilities, an 75,825 adverse reactions following vaccination, as reported to VAERS system managed by the CDC and FDA. This is alarmingly more than four times the number of deaths reported in the US for all vaccines during the previous six years (941). The Defender reported that California was forced to recall a batch of 330,000 Moderna vaccines after a cascade of reported injuries, before resuming their administration.

Yet because the pharmaceutical companies cannot be sued, even in the case of death, Moderna, Pfizer, Astrazenica, etc. does not have any liability! (No other company has complete immunity from liability.)

Indeed, there is a multi-million dollar campaign pushing the narrative on us that until as many are vaccinated as possible, herd immunity won’t be achieved and life won’t return to “normal,” which simply isn’t true…as Dr. Marty Makary, a Johns Hopkins School of Medicine professor explained.

As you will see in the full article below, there are many doctors around the world who are speaking out, even risking their careers to warn people about the potential long (and sometimes not so long) term ill-effects that this new mRNA vaccine will have, many of which are projected to show up in the general population after 6 months to 2 years.

A recent 2021 study in the Journal or Microbiology and Infectious Disease even shows that the spike protein, created by the translation of the vaccine RNA could eventually lead to neurological degenerative diseases like ALS, front temporal lobar degeneration, and Alzheimer’s disease, among others. Even though neither mRNA nor the lipid nanoparticles have been tested in humans, the 2015 mRNA vaccine animal studies which showed that mRNA molecules injected in muscle tissue were found in the brain, heart, bone marrow, and other organs of mice soon after vaccination.

Finally, dozens of babies over 3 months gestation were aborted so that their organs could be harvested in the research for the vaccines, as Dr. Stanley PIotkin (considered the “Godfather of Vaccines”) admitted in a 9-hour deposition. I totally understand why someone would want to take this vaccine to protect themselves or others, but even if there was a high probability of safely doing so (not considering all the variants the vaccine doesn’t account for, those who have still contracted COVID-19 even after taking the vaccine, and the need for additional and potentially even annual booster shots), how could the ends ever justify the means, even if it was just one innocent life? What if that one innocent human being was your child? What if that “one” was you?

Thus, it’s no surprise that many Church leaders around the world have spoken out against abortion-tainted vaccines, including American Cardinal Burke, who stated that “it must be clear that it is never morally justified to develop a vaccine through the use of the cell lines of aborted fetuses,” and Bishop Athanasius Schneider, who writes, “The problem lies in the moral weakening of our resistance to the crime of abortion, and to the crime of the trafficking, exploitation and commercialization of the body parts of murdered unborn children. The use of such vaccines and medicines morally – albeit indirectly—supports this horrible situation.”

Additionally, there are many prophetic voices, chosen messengers, and visionaries that are warning us from Heaven’s perspective about the dangers of this vaccine, including the Church-approved locutions of Anne, ‘apostle of the Returning King,’ Anne has received many locutions from Jesus, Mary, God the Father, and multiple saints on various topics including addiction, suicide, depression, divorce, atheism, everyday lay spirituality and more. The following is an excerpt of a beautiful and vert relevant message she received from Our Lord on May 17th, 2020:

“A created being does not create what is good without God, regardless of one’s beliefs about God. A created being does not create and use that which is bad for people with God, regardless of one’s beliefs about God. Therefore, let it be said that when a person creates something which is used to hurt humanity, they do so without God and they are acting separately from God.

Why do I speak with you this way today? Because you must quietly discern all that moves around you. Ask yourself this question. Is the remedy being offered to people helping humanity or hurting humanity? If it is helping, then you know I am active. If it is hurting humanity, then you know that it is not what I desire for people. Because you cannot possibly judge any person, you leave all judgement to me. The truth is that sometimes people believe they serve to help others when really they spread harm. I do not want this. I want all of God’s children on Earth to be loved and assisted. At the very least, I ask that God’s children not be deliberately harmed. If I am speaking to you, then you should heed my words, which you have now been given. If I am speaking to others, then you should simply discern prayerfully which part of these words are for you. Ponder my words. Ask for light from the Holy Spirit. Ask for protection from the Creator who desires what is good for you.”

Indeed, if you are still unsure as to whether or not they should take this vaccine, I would simply say pray, discern, research, and at the very least, wait until we know more. (And be sure to take a blood test to see whether or not you have the antibodies for natural immunity, since you may have contracted the virus without knowing it, and been asymptomatic). I am fully confident that God will speak in the silence to all those willing to slow down and listen. After all, when it is a question of the health, wellbeing, and even life of just one of His precious, beloved children, He will not hide the Truth…and neither should we. May He, May He Who holds every galaxy and star of our universe, and indeed every breath and heartbeat of our bodies, protect and guide us in every moment of our short stay here in this life, before our entrance into the eternal Kingdom of endless laughter, light, and love!

Note: For those who may be experiencing regret over taking the new COVID-19 vaccine or are worried about adverse side effects, there is complete healing available in mind, body, and spirit! See the following blog post: https://maryrefugeofsouls.com/2021/03/17/march-17-2021-important-information-for-those-people-who-received-the-covid-19-vaccines-maryrefugeofsouls/

Additionally, for those who have already taken the first shot and are unsure about taking the second, it turns out that the second, or optional booster dose, is not necessary and even, additionally more harmful to take. In the words of the Frontline Doctors of America:

We primarily don’t advocate any receive the shot because all things considered, this is an investigational vaccine in use under the EUA (emergency use authorization). This technology (mRNA) has never been used, has limited safety data, and we just don’t know what we don’t know.

We believe there are effective medicines to treat COVID-19, and when treated early, patients don’t advance to the hospital with severe disease. When pressed for more information by those who have taken the first dose, and now, having learned more about the investigational vaccines, our physicians advise: Most of the benefit comes from the first shot. Most of the side effects come from the second.

Full Letter:

To my dear friends and family,

Greetings!

There is certainly no doubt that these past several months have been very trying times for many of us who have lost or been separated or isolated from friends or family members, due to the spread and contraction of the coronavirus. I myself just recently had to quarantine since all three of my family members tested positive for COVID… Fortunately, all are currently better and more or less symptom-free, thank God! It was such a blessing to have so many of those around us reach out to offer our family food, flowers, favors, and, above all, their heartfelt thoughts and prayers.

In light of the recent release of COVID-19 vaccines, I wanted to write a brief commentary of the research I’ve compiled. Of course, I am not a doctor, medical researcher, or bio-ethicist (although I do have a BS degree in Neuroscience and Behavior from the University of Notre Dame), but simply a young and discerning Catholic Christian who is concerned for both the physical and spiritual wellbeing of those I love. Thus, please feel free to share this information with anyone you know who may be contemplating taking the vaccine (or who may have already received the first dose), especially health care workers, medical school students, long-term care facility residents, those over the age of 65, or anyone who has underlying medical conditions, to whom the first waves of vaccines are already being administered to around the nation and world daily.

I want to start by saying that I am usually not someone to be “anti-vaccine” by any means, especially for standard vaccines, which take around 5-10 years to develop. For example, I have received the necessary vaccinations for my international travel in Peru, such as the vaccines for Typhoid and Rabies, for example). However, after looking into the matter from both a moral and medical lens, I would humbly advice you or any of your loved ones who are considering taking this COVID-19 vaccine, or who have already taken the first dose and are planning on receiving the second, not to do so.

Yet before you dismiss this letter as another out-of-touch, unscientific, or even hyper-politized* opinion, I invite you to look at the following evidence (with the respective links) for yourself.

As of May 7th, 2021, there have already tragically been a total of 4,075 deaths, 25,566 visits to the Emergency Doctor/Room, 2,475 permanent disabilities, an 75,825 adverse reactions following vaccination, as reported to VAERS system managed by the CDC and FDA. This is alarmingly more than four times the number of deaths reported in the US for all vaccines during the previous six years (941).

In addition to those hospitalized, thousands of people reported being unable to work or perform daily activities, or required care from a healthcare professional, after getting the new COVID-19 vaccine, (via V-safe, an app that allows users to quickly tell the CDC if they’re experiencing side effects) according to new data from the CDC.

The FDA website states the most commonly reported side effects include tiredness, headache, muscle pain, and chills, which tend to go away after a few days. However, there have also been more acute adverse side effects associate with the new vaccine, including, heart attack, stroke, blood disorders, and even death.

Sadly, the Norwegian Medicines Agency (NMA) reported that as of January 14, 2021 twenty-three people have died within days of receiving the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. The New York post explained that 13 of the 23 who passed away were nursing home patients over 80 years old, and that, in response, medical officials, without apparently indicating significant concern, have already stated that, “they are adjusting their guidance on who should receive the vaccine.” The NMA stated that the “large studies” on the Pfizer/BioNTec vaccine “did not include patients with unstable or acute illness – and included few participants over 85 years of age.”

Additionally, there have been other tragic deaths associated with the new COVID-19 vaccines, including Dr. Gregory Michael, a 56-year-old obstetrician from Miami, Florida (in his case, a Johns Hopkins University expert in blood disorders later asserted that it was “a medical certainly that the vaccine was related” with his death), a 41-year-old mother and health care worker in Porto, Portugal, as well as 24 nursing home residents in Auburn, New York, all within a period of less than two weeks after being vaccinated.

In her article which investigates the bioethics of vaccines, Dr. Kristine Severyn, explains that, “If an adult or child is killed or injured by a vaccine, federal law—the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986—prohibits the person from suing the drug company that made the vaccine. Despite the government’s narrowing criteria for injured parties to collect on vaccine death or injury, the taxpayer fund has paid out more than $4 billion to vaccine victims and their families.”

Of course, it should be noted that the thousands of reported unfavorable outcomes are only a small percentage of the total number of millions who were vaccinated.  Yet on December 16th, 2020, research scientist Dr. Lyons-Weiler, PhD, warned that “21% of people are having serious adverse events from this vaccine.” Lyons-Weiler, who is the President and current CEO of The Institute for Pure and Applied Knowledge (IPAK), points out that because of the rush to release a vaccine to the general public, normal protocols (such as industry-standard animal trials) for COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers were suspended: “The FDA, absolutely ignoring [the] safety margin, in a stunning decision, decided to allow Moderna and other vaccine manufacturers to skip the most important step in vaccine safety for coronavirus which is the animal trials…. they [the FDA] even said well we don’t have to do phase one human trials and phase two human trials separately; we’re going to combine them together because this is such a horrible epidemic, we need to get the science done fast.”

The Moderna vaccine safety report also showed that “68.5% of vaccine recipients” reported fatigue; 63% reported headaches; 59.6% reported myalgia (muscle pain); 44.8% reported arthralgia (joint pain); and 43.4% reported having chills. Additionally, as many as 13 people in Israel have suffered from facial paralysis after being administered the COVID-19 vaccine. The following is the list of potential side effects that the FDA has listed:

The new COVID-19 vaccines have caused widespread enthusiasm and have even been advocated as necessary to “return to normal,” as prominent figures like Bill Gates and Dr. Anthony Fauci have suggested. However, it is clear that they are not full-proof measures in protecting against the contraction and spread of the virus. 240 people in Israel, for example, were found with COVID after vaccination, and in fact Dr. Fauci recently stated, “…if you get vaccinated, you can’t throw away the masks, because you could be infected and conceivably infect others” and that we have to prepare for the possibility that COVID is here to stay.

Under recently released federal guidelines, a COVID-19 vaccine can be authorized for use if it is safe and proves effective in as few as 50% of those who receive it. Yet “effective” doesn’t necessarily mean stopping people from contracting COVID-19, but rather that the its most serious symptoms are minimized, experts say. Dr. Paul Offit, for example, a vaccine expert at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, expressed his concerns about a vaccine with limited efficacy delivered prematurely might give people “a false sense of being protected” and “lead to serious outbreaks of the disease.”

Additionally, because of the new and evolving strains of the virus which are emerging from various parts of the world, scientists and medical experts are uncertain about whether the current vaccines will protect against them. Stephane Bancel himself, the CEO of Moderna, stated on January 13th, 2021 that, “health officials will have to continuously watch for new variants of the virus, so scientists can produce vaccines to fight them,” and that, “we are going to live with this virus, we think, forever,” according to CNBC.

After being repeatedly asked about the new COVID-19 vaccines, Dr. Shallenberger, MD, who has been practicing medicine since 1973 and has been a Pioneer in Integrative Medicine since 1978, gave the following reasons why he warns against taking them. Below are only the first 5 of 14 reasons he gave, the rest of which can be read here:

“People need to have fully informed consent when it comes to injecting foreign genetic material into their bodies.

1. The COVID vaccines are mRNA vaccines. mRNA vaccines are a completely new type of vaccine. No mRNA vaccine has ever been licensed for human use before. In essence, we have absolutely no idea what to expect from this vaccine. We have no idea if it will be effective or safe.**

2. Traditional vaccines simply introduce pieces of a virus to stimulate an immune reaction. The new mRNA vaccine is completely different. It actually injects (transfects) molecules of synthetic genetic material from non-humans sources into our cells. Once in the cells, the genetic material interacts with our transfer RNA (tRNA) to make a foreign protein that supposedly teaches the body to destroy the virus being coded for. Note that these newly created proteins are not regulated by our own DNA, and are thus completely foreign to our cells. What they are fully capable of doing is unknown.

3. The mRNA molecule is vulnerable to destruction. So, in order to protect the fragile mRNA strands while they are being inserted into our DNA they are coated with PEGylated lipid nanoparticles. This coating hides the mRNA from our immune system which ordinarily would kill any foreign material injected into the body. PEGylated lipid nanoparticles have been used in several different drugs for years. Because of their effect on immune system balance, several studies have shown them to induce allergies and autoimmune diseases. Additionally, PEGylated lipid nanoparticles have been shown to trigger their own immune reactions, and to cause damage to the liver.

4. These new vaccines are additionally contaminated with aluminum, mercury, and possibly formaldehyde. The manufacturers have not yet disclosed what other toxins they contain.

5. Since viruses mutate frequently, the chance of any vaccine working for more than a year is unlikely. That is why the flu vaccine changes every year. Last year’s vaccine is no more valuable than last year’s newspaper.”

Indeed, this entirely new type of vaccine, has “no long term safety studies will have been done to ensure that any of these vaccines don’t cause cancer, seizures, heart disease, allergies, and autoimmune diseases seen with other vaccines.” This is why “many experts question whether the mRNA technology is ready for prime time” and why many doctors and medical professionals in the United States and around the world, are advising us not to take the current vaccine. For example, “Dr. Peter Jay Hotez, Professor of Pediatrics and Molecular Virology & Microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine, where he is also Director of the Texas Children’s Hospital Center for Vaccine Development, said of the new mRNA vaccines, ‘I worry about innovation at the expense of practicality because they [the mRNA vaccines] are weighted toward technology platforms that have never made it to licensure before.’” And Michal Linial, Ph.D., who is a Professor of Biochemistry, aligns herself with approximately 50 percent of Americans (around 25 percent are unsure), when she states, “I won’t be taking it [the mRNA vaccine] immediately – probably not for at least the coming year. We have to wait and see whether it really works. We will have a safety profile for only a certain number of months, so if there is a long-term effect after two years, we cannot know.” Furthermore, “in November 2020, The Washington Post reported on hesitancy among healthcare professionals in the United States to the mRNA vaccines, citing surveys which reported that: ‘some did not want to be in the first round, so they could wait and see if there are potential side effects’, and that ‘doctors and nurses want more data before championing vaccines to end the pandemic.’”

More examples of medical professional weighing in about the vaccine include the acclaimed French anesthetist and resuscitation specialist in one of the four major hospitals in Marseille, Dr. Louis Fouche, who is urging people to “refuse the vaccine,” the doctors who petitioned the EU to stop all COVID vaccine studies due to grave risks, and Prof. Dr. Paul Cullen of Germany, who explains the risk of a half-finished and ineffective product causing massive damage to health, an extremely rushed COVID-19 vaccine, “could prove to be the biggest mistake” of the whole COVID episode.

In addition to the very real medical uncertainties and potential health risks that this entirely new form of vaccine presents, there are serious moral concerns being raised. According to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, “both the Pfizer Inc and Moderna Inc vaccines have some connection to cell lines that originated with tissue from abortions…that took place in the 1960’s and 1970’s and that have often been replicated since.”

Indeed, both Pfizer Inc and Moderna used the HEK-293 cell line in developing their respective COVID-19 vaccines. “HEK” stands for Human Embryonic Kidney and the “293” refers to the number of experiments that a researcher did to develop that cell line. And as biologist Pamala Acker, who spent time in a vaccine research lab for nine months before encountering the ethic and moral issue of the HEK-293 cell line, explains, “It doesn’t mean there were two hundred and ninety-three abortions [for the HEK-293 cell line], but for two hundred and ninety-three experiments, you would certainly need far more than one abortion. We’re talking probably hundreds of abortions.”

Acker goes on to explain that because the cells have to be gathered within 5 minutes of an abortion, “They will actually deliver these babies via cesarean section. The babies are still alive when the researchers start extracting the tissue; to the point where their heart is still beating, and they’re generally not given any anesthetic, because that would disrupt the cells that the researchers are trying to extract. So, they’re removing this tissue, all the while the baby is alive and in extreme amounts of pain…” (You can watch the full interview between Pamala Acker, author of “Vaccination: A Catholic Perspective” and John-Henry Westen here.)

In a paper released on December 12, 2020, Bishop Athanasius Schneider, along with co-signers Cardinal Janis Pujats, Bishop Joseph Strickland, Archbishops Tomash Peta and Jan Pawel Lenga, and other bishops and priests around the world expressed their strong conviction that any use of a vaccine tainted by the use of aborted fetal cells, “cannot be acceptable for Catholics.” Additionally, many individual Church leaders have strongly spoken out against any vaccine derived from aborted fetal cell tissue, including American Cardinal Burke, who stated that such vaccines violate “integrity of citizens” and “it must be clear that it is never morally justified to develop a vaccine through the use of the cell lines of aborted fetuses,” Bishop Strickland of Texas, who stated that we must “reject any vaccine that is developed using aborted children,” and Bishop Joseph Brennan of Fresno, California, who stated, “If it’s using objectionable material, we can’t use it, we can’t avail ourselves of it.”

Now, I am fully aware that there are many people of faith, Christians, and even prominent Church leaders who assert that the vaccines are not only permissible, but morally commendable, and should even be obligatory, due to the potential lives they could protect and save. However, the Personhood Alliance, a US organization which includes many competent and trustworthy social, legal, and religious leaders, including President Ronald Regan, Bishop Kagan, and Dr. Alveda King (MLK’s niece), declares that these arguments are in error, since the means, however good and ideal, simply cannot justify the ends: “The production and testing of vaccines using the remains of aborted human beings, regardless of manner of conception and without their consent, is morally unacceptable and must be opposed. The Personhood Alliance strongly urges the rejection of such vaccines.” This official stance was guided by the principles of “the rights of born persons not to be forced to violate their own bodily integrity and/or moral conscience and the rights of pre-born persons not to be trafficked, commodified, and/or experimented upon without their consent.”

There are moral theologians who, despite their belief that abortion is a morality of abortion, assert that the currently available vaccines are morally licit since their connections to the abortions were many years removed and thus, “remote.” Yet to this objection, Catholic nun and podcast speaker, Mother Mirium responds, “If stem cells were used from babies who died, stillbirths, or babies who died shortly after birth, I don’t see any problem with that, as I don’t see a difficulty with an adult donating organs and stem cells. But to use the stem cells from a child that was murdered, I do believe we are participating in the abortion, even though we weren’t even alive at the time.”

These voices aren’t just the consensus the conscience of faithful and trusted Catholic Christians… There are many prophetic voices, chosen messengers, and visionaries that are warning us from Heaven’s perspective about the dangers of this vaccine, including priest, exorcist, founder and superior General of the Apostolic Fraternity of Saint Benedict Joseph Labre.***

Another example is Anne, ‘apostle of the Returning King’ whose Apostolate of the Returning King (ARK) has received from the Irish Bishop O’Reilly a decree granting it the canonical status of a Private Association of the Faithful with Juridical Personality. Anne has received many locutions from Jesus, Mary, God the Father, and multiple saints on various topics including addiction, suicide, depression, divorce, atheism, everyday lay spirituality and more since the early 2000’s, many of which have undergone the careful review and approval by the Church, with the Imprimatur, which states that the messages are free of all moral or doctrinal error. The following is an excerpt of a beautiful and vert relevant message she received from Our Lord on May 17th, 2020, and it with this I would like to end:

“A created being does not create what is good without God, regardless of one’s beliefs about God. A created being does not create and use that which is bad for people with God, regardless of one’s beliefs about God. Therefore, let it be said that when a person creates something which is used to hurt humanity, they do so without God and they are acting separately from God.

Why do I speak with you this way today? Because you must quietly discern all that moves around you. Ask yourself this question. Is the remedy being offered to people helping humanity or hurting humanity? If it is helping, then you know I am active. If it is hurting humanity, then you know that it is not what I desire for people. Because you cannot possibly judge any person, you leave all judgement to me. The truth is that sometimes people believe they serve to help others when really they spread harm. I do not want this. I want all of God’s children on Earth to be loved and assisted. At the very least, I ask that God’s children not be deliberately harmed. If I am speaking to you, then you should heed my words, which you have now been given. If I am speaking to others, then you should simply discern prayerfully which part of these words are for you. Ponder my words. Ask for light from the Holy Spirit. Ask for protection from the Creator who desires what is good for you.”

Thank you so much for taking the time to heed this letter. I hope you understand that my aim is not to incite fear, division, or discouragement, despite the dangers, both physical and spiritual, of these difficult times. Rather, I exhort you to continue to stay positive, peaceful, and prayerful through everything, so as to be a beacon of the power of love and trust in God’s attentive love, complete care, and ever-present grace.

May He and His beautiful, blessed Mother Mary, bless you and your families and friends and keep you safe and healthy in mind, body, and soul, now and always! Yours in Christ’s infinite Mercy, Kindness, and Forgiveness,

*Though I have made my support for Donald Trump public when I posted the YouTube video, “Why, As A Young Catholic Millennial, I’m Voting for Life,” I believe there are serious ethical concerns with the “Operation Warp Speed” fast track vaccine development effort combining the US government, military, and pharmaceutical industry, to release the COVID-vaccines by January of 2021, even before meeting the standard regulatory approvals.

**Final Article/Video: Dr. Dolores Cahill, PhD, is a Molecular Biologist/Immunologist and Professor at the University College of Dublin in Ireland. She is an inventor, founder and shareholder of companies, and has been granted & licensed patents in Europe, the USA & worldwide with applications in improving the early accurate diagnosis of disease (autoimmune diseases & cancer). She has more than 20 years of expertise in high-throughput protein & antibody array, proteomics technology development, automation & biomedical applications in biomarker discovery, diagnostics & personalized medicine. Dr. Cahill recently did an interview explaining how previous peer-reviewed studies on SARS Coronavirus mRNA vaccines conducted on animals have had very negative results, which is why one has never been approved for humans. She states: “When you inject it, this mRNA, why it’s so deadly, is that it now goes into your genes, and starts expressing. And it starts stimulating the immune response from inside your body, and you can’t get rid it because of the source of the viral protein. You now have become like a genetically modified organism.”

*** At this time, the vaccines that don’t involve tests using aborted fetal cells have not yet been made available to the general public, which is why some Catholics may be advocating waiting longer until there are more ethical alternatives to the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. However, the following blog post gives a spiritual and moral warning against taking the vaccine, even suggesting that doing so in full knowledge and consent could be a grave matter, due to the harm it could cause:

“Behold Your Mother”

Toppling evil temptations, experiencing heavenly sensations, and storing up eternal elations …One “Hail Mary” at time!

“From my first Rosary prayer, I felt a peace, a happiness, an excitement within. I couldn’t stop laughing, and I couldn’t stop crying. No drugs or alcohol could have given me what I was feeling at that moment. The more I prayed, the stronger this feeling became, until suddenly, I had finished fifteen decades. I wanted to continue…” -Alan Ames in “The Warning: Testimonies and Prophesies of the Illumination of Conscience”

A CRAZY CHALLENGE:

The next time you feel stressed, depressed, or anything less than blessed, simply stop what you’re doing and start to say few, slow and sincere Hail Marys. Don’t worry don’t even know the words… Just say, “Mary, help me” quietly and from your heart. That is enough for your Mother to immediately swoop in and begin to fill you with her sweetness and strength! Try this experiment and I guarantee you, the Blessed Virgin Mary will make her consoling presence known to you; she will hold you by the hand and lead you deep into Her Immaculate Heart.

“Your Rosaries, dear children, are a lifetime to Heaven” she tells us in the Messages of Holy and Divine Love (via holylove.org). “Through the Rosary, I your Mother, can feed you with the nutrients of My Grace. I can nourish your souls with strong virtues and help you to determine God’s Will in the present moment. The Rosary deters evil inclinations and encourages deeper personal holiness.Cling to the Rosaries. It is a sign to satan that you belong to Me.”

Mary, as the St. Padre Pio confirms, is truly the “shortcut to God,” the quickest, easiest, shortest, and sweetest way to holiness, to happiness, to Heaven. She is the Woman “clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars” (Revelation 12:1), Who crushes the head of the serpent (Genesis 3:15), is “full of grace” (Luke 1:28) and thus free from sin, and is utterly overshadowed by the power of the Most High (Luke 1:35) to conceive of Her Divine Son Jesus, as the very Mother of God (Luke 1:43). Yet She is also the Mother of all “those who keep God’s commandments and bear witness to Jesus” (Revelation 12:17), as Jesus Himself gave Her to all of us, his beloved disciples, in His final words on the Cross (John 19:26). Throughout His entire Passion and Death, it was Mary Who gave Jesus the necessary consolation and strength to lay His life down for our salvation, every step of the way. Thus, She has rightly received the titles of Co-Redemptrix, Advocate, and Mediatrix of All Graces.

And yet, I believe that Our Lady’s favorite title is simply that of Mother. As the most merciful, kind, and gentle of all mothers, all she really wants for all of us, her children, is to know, love, and serve Her Son. Her last words in Scripture really say it all: “Do whatever He tells you” (John 2:5). When contemplate the mysteries of Holy Rosary, we embark upon a timeless journey into the life, death, and resurrection of Christ, through the pure eyes and pondering heart of She Who knew and loved him most intimately! In fact, Our Blessed Mother has revealed that after the Holy Mass, the Holy Rosary is the most powerful, pleasing, and precious prayer for her, and indeed, for all of Heaven to hear! She even told St. Michtilde, “‘Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee!’ No creature has ever said anything that was more pleasing to me, nor will anyone ever be able to find or say to me anything that pleases me more.” No wonder Fr. Paul Moll once stated that, “If it were permitted to one of the elect [a soul currently enjoying Heaven] to live again in this world, he would submit with joy to all the sufferings that men have ever endured here below, in order to add to his merits that which he would acquire by the recital of one Ave Maria.”

Jesus Himself once revealed to the Stigmatist and visionary Catalina Rivas that “Each decade of the Holy Rosary you repeat, the angels gather and place as an offering at the feet of My Mother.” WOW! Imagine all the eternal treasures you will storing up for yourself in Heaven and the all graces and blessing you will giving to others with on earth if you began by just a few more prayers here and there! Try squeezing Hail Marys between bites, before classes/work, while washing your hands, and most of all in the most golden and glorious moments after receiving Our Lord Himself Holy Communion at Mass, just like Our Blessed Mother received Him at the moment of the Incarnation, when God became Man and the Word became Flesh in her Womb! And in addition to passing many mystical graces to others through these fervent, frequent Hail Marys, eventually you may just find yourself giving out brighter smiles, warmer words, and cheerier acts of kindness toward all of those around you, who you formerly may have been failing to notice, to reach out to, to forgive, and to truly love! Even if you’re distracted while praying (by the whirlwind of activities occurring around and within you), YOU WILL STILL BE SAVING SOULS through your smallest prayers! For the Blessed Mother has promised that She sends Her angels to collect the fragments of such prayers, in order to make them wholesome and even beautiful in the Eyes of God! Are you starting to see how, with Momma Mary, you really can’t lose!

“…do not let the Rosary out of your hands.” Our Blessed Mother told Catalina Rivas. “Pray even when you think you can no longer do so.” “…say [the Rosary] very slowly, so that it will reach My ears like a soft whisper of love. Make Me feel your child-like love with each word you recite…”

And if you’re really feeling daring, perhaps you will even take up the incredible practice of the DAILY ROSARY! It only takes 15-20 minutes (About 1% of your day), but it will go on doing good for you and for others for all of ETERNITY! St. Padre Pio called the Rosary “The Weapon” and promised to pray at least 5 (but often upwards of 18 Rosaries a day!) and Alan Ames attempts around 60 Rosary decades every day! Truly, a Rosary a day keeps the devil away!

A PERSONAL STORY:

Though I was the kid in elementary school who would wear a wooden Medjugorje rosary around my uniform belt loop and even lead rosary prayer groups at Recess (the Blessed Mother and the Holy Spirit were apparently my special “favorites” of my Catholic faith!), my devotion to this prayer, and prayer in general, dwindled and nearly altogether diminished by the time I was in high school. Still, my mom never gave up on praying for me, especially during my years of being bullied, feeling excluded, and seeming “lost,” and would often bind me and my little brother to the Immaculate Heart of Mary when she prayed her Rosary on the way to work. This proved to be very fruitful in the end, for during my first year in college at Our Lady’s University, the University of Notre Dame, I was invited to attend a lifechanging weeklong pilgrimage to Rome through the Office of Vocations of the Congregation of Holy Cross. From seeing the jaw-droppingly massive sculptures of the St. Peter’s Basilica and mind-bogglingly gorgeous paintings of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican, to tasting the sweet and savory flavors of fresh Italian pizza and gelato, the trip had so many amazing moments. Yet perhaps the most meaningful and enduring of all was a certain Confession that I had with a Bishop during a public penance service, just after the announcement of the coming Year of Mercy. After listing off all of my sins to him, he seemed to ask me, in a strong foreign accent, “You pray rosary every day?”

“Well…umm…I try…but I don’t always have time…” was something of my timid response.

“No…No…” he declared, “You pray rosary every day.

“Ohhh!” I thought to myself just then, “That must be my penance!” Though a rosary every day for the rest of my life certainly sounded daunting at the time, I accepted the challenge. And after the daily rosary, eventually came daily mass, and even a daily hour of “Tabernacle Time” with Jesus. On several occasions, I started to actually sensibly feel Christ’s overwhelming and overflowing tenderness and peace in the Eucharist, and found it was becoming nearly impossible for me to leave the Church or chapel after receiving Him at Mass, without lingering in His Presence and losing myself in His Love. Other changes began to take place in me as well. I started caring more and more for the spiritual wellbeing of the souls around me, from family to friends to even the “background people” of my life, such as the dorm janitors and dining hall workers, all the while caring less and less of what others thought and said of me. My joy became more exuberant. My peace became more constant. My prayers became more ardent. And my thoughts became more transcendent. Though I still struggled (and still struggle) with certain attachments, such as those to food and comfort, my desire for and capacity for sacrifice was steadily increasing, with little victories after falls and signs of growth over time.

“Never will anyone who says his rosary be led astray. This is a statement I would gladly sign with my blood.” These were the words a later discovered from St. Louis De Montfort, and I can attest to them through and through. Truly, from the day I decided to pray the daily rosary, it was though Our Lady had taken me under Her Mantle and guided me by the hand, slowly infusing me with Her virtues and silently teaching me how to live as a child of the Divine Will, in both the big life decisions and little everyday moments. Day by day, She eventually lead me to my vocation with the Salesians, where I have never been happier. This is why would recommend this most pleasing and priceless, treasured and timeless devotion to anyone and everyone!

After all, in the words of Our Lord to Catalina Rivas, “Spread devotion to [the Rosary]. My Mother promised that if just one member of the family prays it every day, She will save that family. And this promise is signed and sealed by the Divine Trinity.”

Thus, if you feel so called, why not start sharing these Marian prayer cards (in English and Spanish!) on the Power of the Rosary anywhere and everywhere?! After all, in the Unpublished Manuscipt on Purgatory (with the Church Imprimatur) we read, “Those who promote the recitation of the Rosary everywhere deserve praise. It is this prayer that is the most efficacious in the present time of need.”

Thank you so, so much for (hopefully) taking the time to read these words and give them a chance! May you soon know of the indescribable, unfathomable love that Our Blessed Mother has for YOU personally! And may each Hail Mary for you be another joy on earth and treasure in Heaven that awaits you now and for all eternity! Amen!

PS- The following are some more amazingly powerful prayers beseeching Mother Mary’s matchless intercession that have proven to be very profitable in my own prayer life! Feel free to copy/paste and text/email to family/friends! May God bless you, Mary keep you, the angels guide you, and the saints surround you today and always! Ave Maria! Amen!

NOTE: The greatest way to love Jesus with everything you have, body, mind, and soul, is to let Mary do it through you!

“Confession” (A Poem)

For many of Catholics, the going to confession regularly might seem like a chore to be checked off at best and an awkward or even intimating event to be avoided at worst. For me, however, this sacrament has become one of the most beautiful, encouraging and liberated experiences of my life…so much so that I desire to receive this special “soul-cleansing” after a careful examination of conscience at least every month or so! Our Blessed Mother, in her many messages to the visionaries of Medjugorje has encouraged the faithful to partake in the immense graces which monthly confession brings us! And as Mother Angelica used to say (paraphrasing), “If you don’t polish yourself often, you get dim and dull!” Thus, the following poem delves a little deeper into the mystery of this gift…with a glimpse of my thoughts beforehand and afterward! After all, there is nothing that can quite compare to the feeling of shedding all that holds us back from holiness and happiness and being made into a new creation in Christ, through the person of His priestly representative. May He, Who loved you into existence, show you personally how very far the depths of Infinite Mercy will go to swallow up every last one of your faults and failures and hold you ever closer to His yearning and burning Eucharistic Heart! Amen! Enjoy!

“Confession”

I step in
Sullied and steeped in sin

I step out
Fully and freely forgiven

I step in
Lips quivering
Limbs shivering
Head shaking
Hands quaking
Heart pumping, pulsating, palpitating

I step out
An old smile showing
Once glazed over eyes now glowing
A cold and restless heart slowing and warming
And a golden horizon of infinite possibilities flowing;
Hope is regrowing and reforming

I step in
Downcast and distant, heavy and hardened by guilt and grief

I step out
Uplifted and undaunted, dazzled and dizzied by resilience and relief

I step in
Convicted, but lacking conviction
Am I really about to finally pour out my deepest and darkest secrets and addictions?
My biggest and baddest regrets and mistakes?

I step out
It is finished! It is complete!
Yet how could receiving something so sublime and surreal be so simple and sweet?
I guess a little good will and a lot of grace is truly all it takes!

I step in
Scared and scarcely able to speak
For my many seemingly “insignificant” and “inconsequential” sins have snuffed out all the life in me until I’ve become bitter, burdened, broken, and bleak…
Yet the festering wounds that they’ve caused can no longer remain stealthily concealed; in order for them to be thoroughly healed, it is past time for the whole Truth to be bravely revealed, and so here, in this quiet Confessional, I have nervously kneeled
Indeed, the spirit is willing, but flesh is weak
Though I cannot change the past, with the greatest of God’s gifts, my free will in this present moment, it is redemption and reconciliation with Him I now seek

I step out
Humbled and humming a hallelujah song
For Jesus has entirely incinerated my every wrong
In the passionate flames of His Sacred Heart, which burn so bright and so strong
Though my future will be forever transfigured and transformed, it wasn’t my own dreams and designs, but His all along
Indeed, I have placed all my faith, all my hope, and all my love in nothing and no one but God, for I am once again His beautiful and beloved prodigal son, and to Him alone do I belong

I step in
Worrying over how many people I have hurt by my unkindness, unforgiveness, and unwillingness to let go of my pleasures, my plans, my pride
I have cheated, I have stolen, I have gossiped, I have lied
And it has cost me too much precious time and peace of mind to continue to try to justify, deny, criticize, and hide

I step out
Wondering how many people I can help by my everyday efforts in prayer, positivity, service, and sacrifice too
Yes, there has been so much good left undone and yet, how much good there is still left to do!
For every waking moment is a unique opportunity to let Christ’s love, laughter, and light shine through!

I step in
Still frantically trying to prepare
Tempted and tormented by the demons I’ve let in to enslave and ensnare
Yet surrounded and sustained by the Lord’s vigilant protection and tender care
For in my lowest and loneliest of moments, when I wasn’t even awake or aware
He was holding my hand, drying my tears, caressing my hair
Yes, He was always there

I step out
As though from a gentle “soul shower”
Rinsed and released of from the grip of the evil enemy, who has been chained back to hell and detained from all power
While this new, pure, childlike heart beating from within has become a haven for all of Heaven and a throne for the King of the Universe once again! And from now on, He will silently direct me and slowly perfect me therein, day after day and hour by hour

I step in
Feeling dirty, dark, and desperate
Longing and languishing for a clear conscience, a fresh start, a blank slate
For if I were to die unrepentant in this state
Everlasting death, despair, and darkness may very well be my fate…
But thank God Almighty, it’s not too late!

I step out
Feeling filled, freed, and floored
For my soul’s original baptismal innocence has been altogether restored!
And all of the angels and saints are rejoicing all the more
Since if this were my last breath, I would instantly and effortlessly soar
Toward the boundless bliss and beauty of celestial palaces and planets, villages and vineyards, ships and shores
Awaiting me in an eternity of exhilarating adventures and intoxicating intimacy with my vast, heavenly family, with my Blessed Mother Mary, and above all, with my Bridegroom, my Beloved, my Lord

I step in
And with one last prayer and deep breath of courage from within
I make my confession
Leaving no stone left unturned, no sin left hidden
Even the ones I have selfishly and stubbornly committed over and over again…
Finally, when I have reached the very end
I fall to my knees and recite a heartfelt “Act of Contrition”
Professing my deep desire to do all I can to make amends
And my sincere sorrow for the pain I have inflicted upon myself, upon others, and upon My Crucified Savior, Who has been brutally beaten, bloodied, and bruised, outside and in
And then
Comes the Voice, not of a mean judge but of a merciful Friend:
“I absolve you from your sins
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.”

I step out
And I am alive! I am made new! I am washed clean! I am set free!
Because now, it is no longer I who live, but Christ Who lives in me

Poem written by “Little Gregory” on 12/8/2020, Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Verse: “If we acknowledge our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from every wrongdoing” (1 John 1:9).

Quote: “I tell you, dear child, that the truth cannot be denied. I am the Truth. And I love you beyond anything you can imagine. My only wish is to you back to Me, where I might protect you. Do not be afraid. You will not be punished for your misdeeds. Come back to Me now and I will pardon your sins. We will proceed together as though these sins had never been committed. Sins leave a certain residue on a soul. Come to Me now, My beloved child, and with a heavenly breath, I will blow away the residue of sin so your soul proceeds in joy and newness. I am your God. I love you. That will never change.” -Jesus on August 21st, 2003 via ‘Anne, apostle of the Returning King’ in Volume 2: Conversations with the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

Heaven Speaks to YOU: Words of Comfort and Hope for Anyone Who May Be Struggling Emotionally or Spiritually

Since reading and rereading the heavenly messages given by Our Lord, Our Lady, and multiple saints as given to ‘Anne, apostle of the Returning King’ in DirectionForOurTimes.com, my life has been forever changed. These words truly provide Heaven’s answers and remedies to the questions and challenges we are all faced with in these times of so much uncertainty and unrest.

In August of 2020, I received formal permission from Father Darragh Connolly, the Chaplain of the Apostolate of the Returning King (which now enjoys Canonical approval of and status in the Church), to transcribe these words from Heaven into YouTube videos! With the help of some amazing friends and a lot of grace, I have been able to make several already on a variety of relevant subject matters!

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I ask you: Do you know of any family, friends, and loved ones who may be struggling mentally, emotionally, or spiritually during this time? If so, please consider sharing the following words/videos of grace and consolation, so that they may know that, no matter what they’re going through, they are not alone, but are entirely surrounded and aided and endlessly accepted and cherished, by their vast and beautiful heavenly family who eagerly awaits them in an eternity of joy, love, peace and adventure, beyond their wildest imagination.

After all, Jesus Himself has promised in Volume 8: Resting in the Heart of the Savior: “You must heed My words and you must spread them. The merit gained in the spread of these words will astound you because I am asking this of you and souls who do this work are saying “yes” to Me. I am grateful more than you realize, faithful ones. Now be brave and assist your brothers and sisters by giving them these words. You will be well rewarded in heaven.”

“If you pray for others in a time of such great pain, Heaven will flood others with graces, because Heaven views this prayer, made in sorrow, as the most beautiful act of trust.

God the Father, in turn, unleashes a torrent of conversion, healing, and calming graces for all involved in the tragedy.

If you feel the smallest desire to be with Jesus, to rest in His merciful gaze, you will do so. You belong to heaven, little child. Be very humble about your entrance into eternity. A good child, a faithful servant, comes to the door in humility. This is what you must do. God is great, very great. God is all goodness, all power. Comparatively, what are you? I will tell you. You are God’s beloved and immeasurably cherished child. You are like a small infant in my arms, in need of comfort and nourishment. Allow yourself to be a small and helpless infant and I, your heavenly mother, will give you all that you need to appear before God.” -Our Blessed Mother Mary. Read on

“My children, you are all so precious to Me. There is a temptation for people to believe that if they have made a grave mistake, they are not welcome in heaven or that they are not suitable companionship for Me. This is not true.

5 Powerful Ways to Pray “As Never Before” for Our President, Our Nation, and Our World

“Let all your reactions to any result of this election be prayer, prayer and more prayer.” -God the Father on November 4th, 2020 via https://www.holylove.org/messages/#latest-message

“The election results are illicit and do not reflect the heart of this nation. Nefarious efforts worked in the background to undermine the Truth.  Exert your prayer efforts that your President is successful in exposing Satan’s plans.  The soul of your nation needs to unite in this prayer.  Much is at stake nationally and internationally.” -Blessed Virgin Mary on November 7th, 2020 via https://www.holylove.org/messages/#latest-message

In the heat of the current uncertainty we are facing after this divisive and deceptive political election, we are faced with a choice… We can either fall into the enemy’s emotional traps of discouragement or exaggerated anxiety (the “greatest obstacles to holiness,” as Jesus once told St. Faustina) OR we can “put on the armor of God” (Ephesians 6:11) by becoming steadfast and courageous prayer warriors for Our Lord, Our Lady, and indeed all of Heaven and earth!

Think about it: every sin and unkindness negatively impacts the whole world, but every last little heartfelt prayer and act of kindness affects the whole world for good, spreading love, joy, and grace from one soul to the next. “When you pray with love in your hearts,” Our Blessed Mother assures us, “your prayers affect souls, world conditions, and the propensity of God’s Mercy.”1 Now more than ever, our nation and our world are in dire, desperate need of those who constantly and humbly surrender and immerse their hearts in faith-filled prayer: “Dear little children,” Our Lady again exhorts us, “Jesus has sent Me to ask of you extra prayers, as many prayers as you can offer, for such is the need of our Hearts. Every prayer you offer is already used up by My Son, whose Heart is greatly offended. Therefore, My little children, pray, pray, pray.”2

In particular, Our Lord is calling us to pray for a favorable and fair outcome for the 2020 Elections, for on November 2nd, 2020, He gave the following message: “You are also praying for a pro-life candidate as Trump to win re-election for President. You may have some judgments from the Supreme Court to keep the election fair. Lawyers may be examining the absentee ballots to see if they are legal. With enough prayer, your President could win re-election. Trust in Me to protect your President’s life.”3

Truly, we are so close! For if there are enough prayers offered and sacrifices made and President Trump is re-elected, then by God’s grace, Roe vs. Wade will finally be overturned after 47 years and so, so many unborn lives will be saved! Whereas if Biden gets into office, he promised to make Roe the “law of the land” no matter what the Supreme Court decides… (See post: “Why, As A Young Catholic Millennial, I’m Voting for Life!“). Therefore, from November 8th-December 8th, 2020 (when all the contested election results need to be finalized), there will be a month of intense prayer and fasting for the Truth to prevail! The following are 5 simple yet powerful ways to pray for a positive and peaceful outcome to the 2020 elections in our nation, as well as the salvation of our the whole world:

#1 “Continuous Rosaries”

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_2091-7.jpg

In his recent letter to President Trump, Cardinal Vigano has recently exhorted as many as possible, children, the elderly, families, and everyone in between to take up the “Weapon” (as St. Padre Pio called it) of the Most Holy Rosary:

“I ask that all of you pray the Holy Rosary, if possible in your families or with your dear ones, your friends, your brothers and sisters, your colleagues, your fellow soldiers. Pray with the abandonment of children who know how to have recourse to their Most Holy Mother to ask her to intercede before the throne of the Divine Majesty. Pray with a sincere soul, with a pure heart, in the certainty of being heard and answered. Ask her – she who is the Help of Christians, Auxilium Christianorum – to defeat the forces of the Enemy; ask her – she who is terrible as an army set in battle array (Song 6:10) – to grant the victory to the forces of Good and to inflict a humiliating defeat on the forces of Evil.”

Truly, all of hell trembles when even one soul decides to devoutly pray this ancient yet timeless prayer, second in power only to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass! For in Jesus’ own words: “My brothers and sisters, if you knew the power of the Rosary that you hold in your hands and that you pray with your hearts, you would never put it down. It would always be with you and the prayers would always be on your lips.”4

“Satan knows that the Rosary is the weapon which will bring about his defeat. This is why he is desperate to discourage its use. Every time you recite a Hail Mary from the heart, the devil is weakened forever in some area and in some soul. You must never be discouraged, then, in praying the Rosary. When your heart is most filled with distraction, understand the adversary is frightened of your prayers.”5

“Think of the joy in all of Heaven when a breath is drawn and the tongue given over to prayer–the prayer of the Holy Rosary. All of Heaven sighs with joy when free will surrenders to the Divine in this way. When the ‘Hail Mary’ is being prayed from the heart, time stands suspended between Heaven and earth. Angels carry the light of grace back and forth between Heaven and earth, creating a bridge of light between the soul and his Creator. Such a soul is never alone, but has in his company all the Heavenly court.”6

Therefore, let us persevere in our heartfelt prayer efforts, for many souls, many lives, and indeed, the fate of our nation and world depend on them! Rosary after Rosary, the Truth will be exposed, God’s Will will be done, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will Triumph! “My dear children,” Our Blessed Mother warned on October 8th, 2020, “I and all of the angels and saints are encouraging all of My prayer warriors to storm heaven with all of your rosaries to help elect your President and pray for the confirmation of Judge Barrett…. Your country’s freedom is at stake with this election. So pray as many rosaries as you can to save you country from the communist left.”7

#2 Sacrifices/Fasting

“When sacrifice is added to prayers,” Our Blessed Mother tells us, “it is twice as strong.”8 These sacrifices need not be heroic; they must only given over with the utmost love. For in God’s Eyes a mere trifle, such as a simple smile when one feels annoyed or joyless or an extra few Hail Marys when one feels bored or restless, may be worth more than many much larger offerings given over reluctantly or proudly.

Fasting in particular, when done prayerfully and prudently, has sublime spiritual benefits. In the words of Sister Emmanuel Maillard in “Freed and Healed Through Fasting”: “Our heart is already big enough to hold God Himself, but fasting allows God to extend the boundaries of our heart and encompass all of the heavenly dimensions… This is why those who fast have a special spiritual sensitivity and sharpness.” “Only in heaven shall you know that, thanks to your fasting, thanks to your ‘yes’ to Our Lady, hundreds of thousands of young people have been protected from suicide, many young couples have been protected from divorce, many little babies in the womb have been protected from abortion.” (To learn more about the power of Fasting on Bread and Water 1-2 Days a Week as is the practice in Medjugorje, read Jesus’ Love Letter entitled “Fast for Me” from God’s Blue Book 3.)

The following are some more ideas for little physical, social, and mental sacrifices to give to Jesus throughout the day to help deepen our intimacy with Him and brings more and more souls to Him: https://liveandliveon.files.wordpress.com/2020/11/little-physical-social-and-mental-sacrifice-ideas.pdf

“The future is not carved in stone,” Jesus reminds us, “but is dependent upon the effort of prayer and sacrifice emanating from the heart of the world. No one knows the hour of the Apocalypse except My Father in Heaven. The present moment is the opportunity God gives you to win souls for the Remnant and to change the hearts of influential leaders. In this effort, you must never be discouraged.”9

This urgent call to accept our everyday sufferings and offer little, loving sacrifices echoes the message Our Lady of Fatima gave on August 19th, 1917: “Pray, pray much, and sacrifice for sinners, for many souls go to hell because there is no one to sacrifice and pray for them.”

# 3 Litanies of the Angels/Saints

In this age of darkness and disobedience, the angels, saints, and souls in purgatory of the mystical Body of Christ stand by ready to fight the good fight alongside us! Therefore, we should have recourse to as many of our heavenly protectors and guides as possible, who can defend us from any and all evil influences like an invisible yet invincible force fields surrounding us!

In particular, let us invoke the names of the following angels in the battle to save America from the clutches of evil:

Zechariah, the Angel of the United States, of the Choir of Powers (5th Choir);

Constant, the ruling and guiding Angel of the United States Congress; and

Micah, the ruling and guiding Angel of the United States Supreme Court.

(See: https://maryrefugeofsouls.com/2019/01/10/names-of-the-holy-angels-assigned-to-protect-and-guide-the-united-states-of-america/ )

Also, let us not forget the saints, whose intercessory powers have also been greatly enhanced during these final days in the Advent of the Warning and the Second Coming of Christ:

#4 Holy Hours (In Person or Online)

“When we get in front of the sun, we get sun tans…” Blessed Carlo Acutis once said, “But when we get in front of Jesus in the Eucharist, we become Saints.” For many of us, this Sun of infinite beauty, wisdom, and power, this Source inexhaustible love, joy, and peace, Who holds the remedy for all our hurts, the reprieve from all our anxieties, the refuge against all our temptations, the response to our questions, the redirection in all our present moments, and, of course, the remission of all our sins… this most handsome and heartfelt Lover of our very souls awaits us with a few miles radius, in the nearest Catholic Church! What, therefore, is holding us back spend as much “one-on-one” time as possible with He Who has been burning and begging, longing and languishing, calling and crying out for our very presence in all the tabernacles of the world from the beginning of time? In His own words in God’s Blue Book 3:

“When you come to Me in the Eucharist and in front of the tabernacle, I give you special graces to help you love. I shower you with My love. I fill you with such gifts you cannot receive anywhere on the face of this earth… Do you, My beloved ones, want to love your brothers? Do you want to know My ways and live in harmony with Me? Come to Me in My Blessed Sacrament and let Me minister to you. The time you spend after Communion is your dearest treasure. Do not run from My altar to get to your world. Stay and let Me bathe you in My beautiful love! I bathe you. You leave with such beautiful love to share with your beloved ones.”

Read/share more Eucharistic excerpts from God’s Blue Books here:

Note: Jesus has revealed through various mystics that He remains sacramentally present for 20 minutes after we receive Him (until His Body and Blood has completely dissolved in all the particles the Host). He has referred to this time as the moments when He is closest to us, and when He is want to grant every request we make of Him in faith! So then, let us remain with Him after Communion and beseech His Sacred Heart burning and beating inside us for an immense outpouring of grace for ourselves, for our friends and families, and indeed, for the salvation of the whole world! 🙂 Read more quotes from Our Lord Himself about the golden and glorious moments after Communion here.

Truly, nothing could possibly be more important than starting our day by receiving the King and kings and Lord of lords into our hearts to become entirely consumed, saturated, and enflamed with the warmth, light, and energy of His burning Love to infuse into all we do and radiate toward all we meet during the day. Nothing will keep us more at peace and yet attentive and attuned to the promptings of the Lord within in. And nothing will allow us to topple satan’s empire of darkness and build Christ’s Kingdom of Light more than uniting our hearts with His Sacred, Eucharistic Heart in Holy Communion! For, in the words of St. Martin de Porres, “Please know and understand the great consolation Jesus feels in His Divine Heart whenever you pray before His Real Presence. As He is consoled, the stranglehold that satan has upon the throat of the world is loosened, and souls are given knowledge as to their sinful ways…. Believe that one holy hour can save a soul and change the course of human history forever. Live as though you believe this profound truth.”10

This time of pandemic has sadly stopped many Catholics from attending daily mass and visiting Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament. However, where human sin and helplessness abounds, God’s grace and aid abound all the more! As St. Thomas Aquinas assures us in Volume 7: Greetings from Heaven:

“My brothers and sisters, you understand that we come to advise you, but also to prepare you, and indeed to advise you on how to prepare. There will come a time when you may be deprived of the Sacrament of the Eucharist altogether. This will occur in some areas of the world. This will be a grave and heavy cross but I assure you that heaven will compensate. You will make constant spiritual communions and remain united to Christ. You will have angels and saints all around you, willing to console and direct you. You will be very brave and very fixated on your Jesus and on your mission to serve Him. So even in removing the Eucharist, the enemy can do you no real harm. Do you understand?”

If you are unable to attend daily Mass or adore Our Lord in the Eucharist, remember to make frequent spiritual communions and utilize the online daily mass videos and Eucharistic adoration Livestream via YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I23aEVCtzHs

#5 Acts of Love

“Nothing opens hearts like love.” Our Lord tells us in Meditations: Living the Divine Will. “It cracks hearts like a hammer to a stone.” Truly, our love for God and neighbor is the most powerful weapon we possess in the battle of good over evil, for “[satan] fears the power emanating from a loving heart.”11 Let us endeavor then, to ever-increase the number and fervor of our acts of love for God and kindness towards others, and always pray to be guided and prompted by the Holy Spirit to see and seize the many opportunities to do so during a single day! After all, if “every act of love counteracts an act of evil,”12 imagine the infinite value and endless ripple effects of an act of love of ours taken and multiplied by the Lord Himself, a thousand fold!

Finally, as we begin to employ these 5 means of prayer, it is important to understand that each is only as efficacious as the love and trust in our hearts. “The degree of faith in the heart when a prayer is offered is like the heat in an oven.” Jesus explains, “The warmer the oven the more quickly and completely the bread is baked. The higher the degree of faith, the more quickly and completely a prayer is answered.”13 Truly, I am certain that if enough brave and bold men and women of all ages and even faiths come together spiritually in prayerful love and trust, the victory for our President will be assured! Yet regardless of the outcome, we cannot forget that every prayer, even the smallest and slightest, is saved and sealed by the Holy Angels, purified and perfected by the Holy Mother, and taken and treasured by the Holy Trinity, to be used for the glory of God, the salvation of souls, and our own holiness on earth and happiness in Heaven, forever. In the words of Our Lord in Volume 4: Jesus the King: “Every breath of praise, every sentence of praise, every song of praise you utter will surround you with an oxygen-like substance in heaven. You will breathe in all of your prayers and you will exult in every earthly acceptance of suffering or hardship. Your prayers and obedience give God glory, this is true. But your earthly prayers and obedience also give you glory in eternity. These acts of submission to your God add to the light that will surround you in heaven.”

Yes, at the end of the day, no matter who wins this current US election, God is still in charge. In His own Words in Mediations: Living the Divine Will: “…I love you so much that I AM not going to let anything happen to you that will not be the best for you, and I mean anything: nothing in the physical sense, spiritual sense, or by any other creature’s desire, will happen unless it is My Will…” 

Now that’s a promise the people can believe in! Have a beautiful, blessed day, and never stop praying…and smiling! Because no matter who you are and what you’ve done, Jesus loves you!

Yours in His Infinite Mercy and Forgiveness, and in the Three Sacred Hearts of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph,

Greg! Aka “Little Gregory”

PS- The following are some more short but POWERFUL prayers to copy/paste and text/email to share with family and friends! Feel free to spread them like wildfire, because the more prayers prayed=the more souls saved! 🙂

Why, As A Young Catholic Millennial, I’m Voting for Life!

To my dear friends and family, brothers and sisters in Christ,

With the landmark 2020 election right around the corner, I like to focus on a few helpful resources and information I have compiled to help anyone that may not have voted yet or may still be undecided. Now I know what you might be thinking: oh, boy, more politics… Yet I would like to start by reassuring you that I am not interested in long-winded discourses or divisive debates (we have enough of those already, don’t you think?). After all, even Our Lord has even advised us thus: “Do not spend a great deal of time discussing events in the world. Long discussions do not benefit the situation. Spend instead a great deal of time praying for the situation in the world. This will benefit the situation, along with those around you, and your own little priceless soul, which becomes more and more beautiful through prayer and silence” (see Monthly Messages: August 1st, 2006).

Rather, I would simply like to share my own perspective, given the research and discernment I’ve done over the last few months. And so, without further adieu, please enjoy my YouTube video entitled, “Why, As I Young Catholic Millennial, I’m Voting for Life!” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qddJ47AFocc

In it, I draw reference to first and foremost the infinite love and mercy, untold healing and hope, and endless freedom and forgiveness available to any woman that has ever chosen abortion. Truly, God loves us all passionately and completely, no matter who we are or what we’ve done. There is no sin that He cannot forgive, no mistake that He won’t immediately incinerate in the fires of His Sacred Heart if we simply have the courage and humility to say, “Lord…I’m sorry.”

“Dear woman, if you think you have committed a graver sin than I, you are wrong. Jesus loves me tenderly and I am a close friend to the Savior. And yet, I would repel you if you knew how I had lived a part of my life. We are all the same in that we are all sinners. Nobody in heaven looks at anyone else with anything but love and understanding. This is because we all understand that given the right set of earthly circumstances, we could make grave mistakes such as you did. Your circumstances contributed to your decision. I know this. Jesus knows this. All of heaven knows this. You must accept this, too. If you were in different circumstances, it is likely you would have made a different decision. But it is over and Jesus makes all things new. Let Him make your soul new and you will give Him far greater joy than you gave Him sorrow. I would not tell you something if it were not true. If you return to Jesus with your heart and ask Him for forgiveness, you will have forgiveness and He will forget your sins. He has certainly forgotten mine.” -St. Mary Magdalene in Heaven Speaks About Abortion. Video: “Hope and Heaving For Women Who Have Had Abortions” available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TPMsLgZxu8

I go on explain the startling and staggering statistics of the abortion industry in America, such as the fact that since 1973 there have been over 60,000,000 abortions, that every day there are about 3,000 abortions, that every year, around 11,500 babies are killed in third trimester abortions, and that sadly, of the babies born with Down syndrome, 67% are aborted. Truly, our world has been deprived of so many beautiful blessings from those who are missing because they had no vote, no voice, no chance, and no choice.

Of course, while the lives of the least and littlest among us, the unborn, are the most vulnerable and unprotected, abortion is not the only social justice issue. Authentic Christians and good citizens have and must continue to go out of their way to serve the elderly and the infirm, the poor and the marginalized, and the imprisoned and immigrant, just to name a few. Yet as is clear to see from the graph below, among all tragic human injustices, abortion is by far the greatest killer of innocent life in our nation. In the words of St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta, it is also “the greatest destroyer of peace today.” The United States Catholic Conference of Bishops affirms this in their statement from their official U.S. Bishops Voter’s guide for 2020: “The threat of abortion remains our preeminent priority because it directly attacks life itself.”

Every heartfelt prayer or act of kindness affects the whole world for good, spreading love, joy, and grace from one soul to the next. When you pray with love in your hearts,” Our Blessed Mother Mary reassures us, “your prayers are eternal in value and affect souls, world conditions and the propensity of God’s Mercy.” Conversely, however, every sin- even those hidden from others- affects the whole world in a negative chain-reaction. And while all sin damages our relationship with God and one another, there are certain “non-negotiables” that the Catechism of the Catholic Church defines as morally grave matters, and thus should be avoided at all costs. Cardinal Raymond Burke, Archbishop Emeritus of St. Louis alludes to this in his words of warning to voters: “There is no element of the common good that could justify voting for a candidate who also endorses, without restriction or limitation, the deliberate killing of the innocent, abortion, embryonic stem, cell research, euthanasia or human cloning…These elements are so fundamental to the common good that they cannot be subordinated to any other cause, no matter how good….” In fact, many reputable Catholic leaders who faithfully uphold the teachings of the 2,000 year-old Magisterium of the Church have publicly made statements concerning this pivotal upcoming 2020 election, which you can read here: https://anticatholicticket.com/clergy-statements

The following are just a few of the many major pro-life accomplishments of Trump-Pence administration, such as the reallocation of millions of our taxpayer dollars from the massive abortion industry to mostly locally funded community health centers, which provide other options for pregnant women in unplanned or crisis pregnancies, including living arrangements, parenting classes, baby food, day care, and adoption agency referrals. Over the last 4 years, our President has also placed over 200 judges who are most likely make pro-life, pro-family, pro-religious freedom decisions, and he has appointed 3 conservative Justices to the Supreme Court (including the amazing Amy Barret of Notre Dame…Go Irish!).
With all of these and more, it’s no wonder Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life, has stated, “[Trump] has done more for the pro-life moment than any president when it comes to enacting policy.”

Amazingly, 28 state legislatures have introduced a variety of abortion bans in the first quarter of 2019 alone, in preparation for the overturning of Roe vs. Wade, which legalized abortion for all 9 months in all 50 states. However, Democratic-Presidential candidate Joe Biden has publicly stated that if elected, he would instruct the justice department to block all restrictions on abortion, that one of his first acts as president would be to restore taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood, and that, if the Supreme Court overturns Roe vs. Wade, he would pass legislation to reestablish it as the “law of the land.”Watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nn7hGkMJObs&feature=emb_title

On the other hand, if President Trump is reelected, he will continue to faithfully uphold his campaign promise: “I will veto any legislation that weakens current pro-life federal policies and laws, or that encourages the destruction of innocent human life at any stage.”
Additionally, the list of our President’s overall accomplishments on other fronts since 2016 are quite commendable, including the creation of 7 million jobs, record low poverty and unemployment rates (before the pandemic), the all-time high in US oil production (and thus decreased dependency on foreign oil), and the passing of the largest conversation bill in a decade, to protect over 375,000 acres of wilderness land, among many others:

Now, I fully understand that Donald Trump is not the agreeable, placating, politically correct politician we are used to (he is, after all, not a politician at all but a businessman). I will personally admit that I sometimes have to cringe a little when I hear him make some of his humorously “off the cuff” comments.* Yet I also recognize that he has an incredible, intelligent staff surrounding him and many supporters from all different faiths and walks of life praying for him every day, despite all the disrespectful and downright demeaning treatment he’s received. Indeed, there is actually so much misinformation from often liberal-leaning mainstream media outlets about our President, which is why I recommend having a look at the following article by Father Frank Pavone, founder of Priests for Life, entitled, “Blowing Apart A Dozen Myths About President Trump” https://www.priestsforlife.org/elections/trump-myths.aspx

In it, Fr. Frank debunks 12 widespread but false claims about President Trump, such as the Charlottesville Lie (see video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=587Nw4sOA44&t=126s), the alleged “Muslim ban,” and the outright lie that President said the corona virus was a hoax, which has been debunked by the media at least eight times, including by outlets that are no friends of the president, such as The Washington Post and CNN  (see article: https://www.lifesitenews.com/blogs/kamala-harriss-debate-performance-was-shot-through-with-falsehoods). This is why I feel it is so important for people to do their personal research before forming their opinions and to ultimately vote for policies over personalities. For a voter’s guide to help anyone in understanding where the candidates actually stand on all the issues, click here: https://mfv.sfo2.digitaloceanspaces.com/PDF/2020-Presidential-VoterGuide.pdf

Finally, there are multiple Catholic prophesies regarding President Trump, predicting/confirming that God would use/is using this very far-from-perfect man to lead his people, stand up for the most innocent among us, and protect our religious liberty against progressive ideologies and globalist agendas that deny His Existence and Dominion and stand in direct opposition to His Commandments of Love. I describe a few of them in the following YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-rvTQLtmb6c

Thank you for taking the time to read through these words and (hopefully) check out these resources! Please keep up all your loving prayers and hidden sacrifices, which are so precious and pleasing to God, and make such a difference in so many hearts and lives! (Truly their fruits and His gratitude, will only be seen and felt in eternity!) Also, feel 100% free to share this email or blog post with family and friends/pastors and priests before the Election, or to reach out to me with any comments, questions, or prayer requests/ways I can pray for you here from Los Angeles!

Above all, even amidst the craziness of these times and divineness of this election season, I exhort you to never lose your inner peace and beautiful smile, by resting in the childlike confidence that no matter who is in office, God is in charge. For in Our Lord’s own words in Meditations: Learning the Divine Will: “…I love you so much that I AM not going to let anything happen to you that will not be the best for you, and I mean anything: nothing in the physical sense, spiritual sense, or by any other creature’s desire, will happen unless it is My Will…” Wow…Now that’s a promise the people can believe in! 🙂

Yours in the Infinite, Intimate, Intense Love, Joy, and Peace of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in Jesus, Mary, and Joseph,

Greg aka “Little Gregory”

A Brief Reflection on Religious Life and A Poem of Thanks and Praise

Dear Jesus,

I am so moved with gratitude, even to tears. For You have done it. You have answered my prayer, and fulfilled the desire of my heart, which has been within me for the last year of my life…it is the desire to enter the religious life, indeed, the life of Paradise. And wow…what a life of true peace it is! Yes, all of the free time for silent reflection, spiritual reading, and heartfelt prayer makes it entirely possible, even easy, to consecrate every present moment to You! And Your physical Presence in the Eucharist of the chapel in our house means that I get to quite literally, live with You under Your roof! Though I am miles far from my family, I feel as though the life of Nazareth has truly only begun…and I will take up my place, my song of love, in the company of and constant contact with Jesus, Mary, and Joseph! For now that I have closed out all the noise and nonsense of this world, I am safely enclosed in the confines of Your Sacred Heart, and together with You, I can finally and freely focus more fully on my mission for the Church, that is, to pump blood to all its members and indeed to all souls of earth through the graces granted by a life of prayer and sacrifice! Yes, there are still possible distractions, diversions, and dissipations, within and around me, but even the struggle comes with so many graces of confidence in, consolation with, and courage from You, Who are uniting Yourself ever closer and closer to my endlessly enraptured heart! And thus, no matter the temptation or trial, it seems as though that the victory seems always assured! Yes, there are still crosses, but it is as though You are carrying them all with cans even for me, in this blessed intimacy, this oneness we share! And so they are all consumed in the enlivening fires of divine love and so light and sweet they all seem! Yes, even despite the current chaotic state of this world, which will soon pass away, and the wounded state of religious life, which will soon be rectified, my life here has become a perpetual Paradise, an inner love affair, indeed an Unceasing Act of Love! Thank You, Good Lord, for the Grace of my vocation! Thank You, Sweet Lord, for having allowed me to find the pearl of great price, and sell all the passing pleasures and temporal treasures on earth for it! Thank you, Lord Jesus, for the unfathomably beautiful and endlessly blissful gift of the consecrated life, by which even here and now, I begin to live the fullness of eternal life, of Paradise, through, with, and in You!

I love You Jesus! I love You Papa God! I love You Mother Mary! I love You Saint Joseph! Love, Your servant, sinner, soldier, and son…

And even though all eternity will be too short to sing all of your praises, with all those who will glorify You throughout all lands and gases, on this very day, in this humble yet wholehearted way…

Still I say…

“Thank You, Thank You, Thank You Lord!

Quote: from the Diary of St. Faustina, Paragraphs 15-17: “This is how I was accepted. However, for many reasons I still had to remain in the world for more than a year with that pious woman [Aldona Lipszycowa], but I did not go back to my own home. At that time I had to struggle with many difficulties, but God was lavish with His graces. An ever greater longing for God began to take hold of me. The lady, pious as she was, did not understand the happiness of religious life and, in her kindheartedness began to make other plans for my future life. And yet, I sensed that I had a heart so big that nothing would be capable of filling it. And so I turned with all the longing of my soul to God. 16 It was during the octave of Corpus Christi [June 25, 1925]. God filled my soul with the interior light of a deeper knowledge of Him as Supreme Goodness and Supreme Beauty. I came to know how very much God loves me. Eternal is His love for me. It was at vespers — in simple words, which flowed from the heart, I made to God (6) a vow of perpetual chastity. From that moment I felt a greater intimacy with God, my Spouse. From that moment I set up a little cell in my heart where I always kept company with Jesus. 17 At last the time came when the door of the convent was opened for me — it was the first of August [1925], in the evening, the vigil [of the feast] of Our Lady of the Angels. I felt immensely happy; it seemed to me that I had stepped into the life of Paradise. A single prayer was bursting forth from my heart, one of thanksgiving.”

Living in the Divine Will…Messages from Our Lord

The following are many of Jesus’ Messages in “Meditations: Learning the Divine Will ”  from Trentditional, (W 5111 Robin Court, Necedah, WI 54646, USA)… Enjoy and feel free to share and spread the Love! 🙂

“Put all your Trust in Me. Definition of trust: “To commit or place in one’s care or keeping, to hope or expect confidently assured reliance on the character, ability, strength or truth of someone.”

“I, your Jesus, am in control of everything that happens.”

“Realize that I have each day for the rest of your life, and then for all eternity planned for you.”

“Forget yesterday and don’t think about tomorrow.”

“Every day is planned out for you; every hour, every person you will meet or talk to.”

“Depend on Me, and I will always tell you what to do, moment by moment.”

“If you are troubled, then you are out of My Will, for I am controlling everything in your life: your job, family, financial status, health, everything.”

“I will take care of your room and board and all the details of your life and will go with only one thing on your mind- loving Me and loving souls.”

“I want you to stay on the plateau above the world, doing your daily duties but thinking about Me, loving Me and loving others.”

“Love other by listening to them, by helping them, by speaking positively, by smiling, by praying for them. Let your light, which is My Light, shine.

“Think of it this way. If you had a human friend that took care of all your problems, then you would be carefree and happy and not worrying about anything. Well, I want to be that person in your life. I am taking care of all your problems. Now let go, let go, let go.”

“Nothing matters in this world. It is all passing. I AM in control of every breath you take and every step you make.”

“Be stable, peaceful, calm serene; trust ME for everything.”

When you learn and have the true sense of MY Love, My Peace, My Joy, then you can experience a Divine Union and you can become one with ME and reflect these supernatural qualities that are not like what the world thinks these qualities are.

“Have not a care, except for loving Me and souls.”

Don’t think about the future, don’t think about the past, and don’t think about creatures, what they say or have done to you. Please, only think about Me and then you can be joyful and transparent and I can use you to Love.”

I have people today that I AM placing in your path that need My Love and you can’t give it them if you are all wrapped up in your thoughts and problems and work.”

You must stay in a surrendered and abandoned state all the time as I have been teaching you so I have free reign with all your faculties.

When you are not on missions of love, you will be able to pray with words or by offering up your daily work. This will also save souls, and to cover all the other time in between, you will offer up an ‘Unceasing Act of Love’

Continue striking to pray the “Unceasing Act of Love.” Read the book [Jesus Appeals to the Word] and live it. This will truly keep your soul in a stable and joyful state while you are saving souls and loving Me with this prayer.

My Love is your security. My Love is your salvation. This world is passing and soon all of the present problems are you concerned about will dissolve and mean nothing.”

“Having MY Peace is more important than anything that happens to you, for if you lose your peace then you may fall from Grace and then everything is for naught.”

“You see, it is not about what happens to you, it is how you think about what is happening. If your mind is not under wraps, then you will lose your peace, so you must continue striving to control your thoughts by repeating the “Unceasing Act of Love.” This alone is the solution to maintain a peaceful, joyful life because you will not have time to entertain bad that’s that will overwhelm you and cause you to lose your peace, and once you lose your peace then I cannot have full reign and time is wasted and opportunities are missed to save souls.”

“More rosaries, more sacrifices, more self-denial. The tide must turn, Love must overcome evil. The catalyst of the Triumph of Love in this world will be the “cross of the chastisements.” All will be brought to their knees, but some will not have a chance because of all the disasters, so tell all to pray, pray, pray for souls.”

“This is a very serious time in My Father’s Plan of Salvation. You are living in this time and I need you to participate in spreading a message of prayer for souls that will be caught in My Father’s Wrath. Do all you can. I will guide you, I will direct you.”

“All your problems are Mine. All will be solved to the extend I desire and according to My timing. Forget them. Just go through the day loving others, staying at peace, and offering up your work for souls, and repeating the “Unceasing Act of Love” to save souls.

“I want you totally dependent on Me for everything, then you will stay little like a child and then I can Love you as creatures love their little children who are not old enough to have their own desire to do it their way.”

“It is not how holy you are, it is the effort you make to become holy. Only I can make you holy by My Grace.”

“Holiness is a gift; but I need a heart that is open and striving to want to do what will please Me.”

“How beautiful is a child in a Mother’s or Father’s eyes if that child is always trying to please them with every word and action. The child will do it because of a pure and innocent heart and because he or she loves the parents and does not want to hurt them by doing something against their will.”

“Strive to live your life doing My Will. I promise you that everything I let happen to you is for your best interest and if you ask Me for guidance, then each circumstance of your life will give you great joy, for you will know that I am perfecting you.”

“You must strive to live totally detached from the world as I have been teaching you and you must depend on Me for everything so you remain little, and you must live the Gospel in every way.”

“If you strive to be holy, to do My Will and not your own, and if you live in an abandoned state and are obedient to My Words, then I promise I will pour My Grace into you and you will go higher and higher each day in My Kingdom of Grace.”

“You will be given crosses in your life, but if you accept them as My Will, then you will know that the cross is either one to learn from, or to merit from, or in most cases both.”

“Be full of love and cheerfulness. Be a pleasure to be around and you will see how good a day you will have for I want My children to be happy and joyful. Why shouldn’t they be? If they are living in the state of grace, then they are on their way to Heaven, their home. The only thing that can ruin their day is if they focus on themselves instead of on Me and others.”

“You are in a war. This is another reason that you must stay abandoned to Me so you can be protected from the devil for he is after you in a big way; but don’t be troubled. You have Me and My Mother’s protection and your angels. But you must stay at peace and you must call on Us to defend you.”

“All of the people you are in contact with need you prayers, for their lives are so wrapped up in the world. It is important; their souls are so blinded from the truth and so enslaved by their passions and desires and your prayers will give Me the opportunity I need to touch their hearts.”

“Abandon yourself to Me and let Me use all of you faculties. Keep turning over to Me your words and actions and I will talk and act though you.”

“Can you change the past? No, you can’t. Can you control the future? No. Then, to spend time thinking about them is wasted, so please don’t. Live for today, only today, and live each activity or task of the day intensely so that you can be perfected and focus on others totally, their cares and needs.”

“Time slips by quickly. You must pray for souls. I need your prayers and all those of My other family members. Don’t neglect them, make it a priority, I cannot help souls without prayers.”

“Your country is so pacified by the evil one and many souls will be lost if no prayers are said. All the activities of the day can be a prayer if offered to Me, so do your work well. Do it for Me, do it as a sacrifice to save souls.”

“I have everything under control. I need you to be abandoned and open to My Will in your life so I will not miss an opportunity to love through you.”

“Live each moment intensely. Do the task at hand and have peace. Give others My smile, My encouraging Words, My Hope in the future. Think and talk positively, for the storm in the world will end with a dawn of Love and Peace in a renewed world.”

“I have all your problems in My Hands and I am caring for you as My precious little child.”

“…Live in My Will in an abandoned state and live the present moment intensely. You are starting to realize how precious it is to live in the present moment. Live becomes so simple because you can concentrate on the task at hand, or the circumstances you are in, or loving the people you are with.”

“So you must pray, pray, pray and tell others to pray, pray, pray for it is a requirement to save souls.”

“Live the present moment and trust Me and My Mother to get you from point A to point B.”

“I want you to become My child of the Divine Will. I want you to be purified and grow. These words will accomplish this if you study them and change your ways and life to match My teachings.”

“I will guide you, hour by hour, if you let Me, by your abandonment to My Will.”

“Be fill of joy; please don’t worry about the world’s problems. I have everything under control. All things work out for your good. Live this day in complete abandonment and surrender. Wear My smile and love all those I place you with. I am going to take care of all your problems, at home, at work, in religious life, so go, without a care, in order that I can use you to the fullest.”

“I thank you for your abandonment and letting Me control your faculties. I use you in ways you don’t even realize. This is why it is so important to live the Consecrated Life so I can have full reign and get the most out of the opportunities.”

“You must meditate on how much I love you. It is so important to have a deep understanding of this; for My Love for you is your food, your protection, your security, when you truly grasp the depth of My Love.”

“You will maintain a very stable peace for I love you so much that I AM not going to let anything happen to you that will not be the best for you, and I mean anything: nothing in the physical sense, spiritual sense, or by any other creature’s desire, will happen unless it is My Will; and My Will is that I Love you so much that I am always going to make all things turn out for your best interest, for you are My child in the Divine Will and I am a jealous God and My Love is endless for you.”

“Stay in a state of peace and calm and serenity, for you are in My hands and nothing will harm you.”

“The greatest gift that I can give to My creatures is their children, and their greatest possession is their children. It is the same for Me. My greatest possessions are My children and the apples of My Eyes are My sons and daughters that strive to do My Will and please Me with their heart’s intentions; so I am always a happy God when My children act this way and I am not going to let anything happen to them which would hurt them in any way.”

“My love is limitless and when My children have nothing on their mind but loving Me and doing My Will, how can I not go to the endless boundary of Love and bless them with Graces and gifts from My storehouse?”

“As you would die to save and protect your child if you had to, so I have no hesitation in loving you to that extreme, and it is your knowledge of this Love that I have for you that will give you the reason to trust Me in all the activities and details of your life.”

“’May all men recognize God in His immense ‘I love you’ that is manifested to us in every circumstance of our lives.’ Doesn’t this statement say it all? I love you so much and everything that happens to you is your betterment and it is only happening to you because I love you, for I created you out of love and keep your body alive because I love you. And I am teaching you and guiding you in each circumstance in your life, hour by hour, moment by moment, because I love you.”

“I will infuse so much Love and Grace into you that no one will be able to love Me and desire Me like you; and the condition for obtaining this: If you want to become something great in Me, always consider yourself nothing; then I will pour My Whole Being into you.”

“So many people think that living and doing My Will will cramp their life and not be anything but a bore and an endless life of misery. They don’t understand that is its just the opposite, for all of life is a lesson and a test to become another Jesus, another image and follower of Me in all ways for I only did the Father’s Will and I always lived a joyful life, and I want the same for you and every creature on this planet- especially for all your family members.”

“The ‘human will’ gets in the way, so get rid of it and become a ‘nothing’ and I will reign. My Will will reign and together we will become one and you will have all the gifts and fruits of My Spirit and you will reign with Me in Heaven with all My sons and daughters of My Divine Will.”

“Don’t try to cross the currents or swim upstream by doing your will. Instead, abandon yourself to Me, and float downstream, for I will support you and I will not let you be hurt on your journey, if you trust Me and live in My Will.”

“How I wish that all souls recognized Me in the Blessed Sacrament. The Sacred Host is Me; it is truly Me, God in the flesh. The attack on Me does not end. They want Me out of their sight, and they want Me in the closet. They are so wishy washy in their belief. How I long for the reversence of ages past. Be sure to visit Me today and console Me for I am so upset about this and I need My family members to comfort Me and show Me reverence… The reverence deserved by their God, their Creator, their Redeemer and their Comforter; Three in One, all present in the Bread.”

“Continue to do your work; do it as a prayer. Do it united to the work as I did with St. Joseph in Our workshop and work will save souls.”

“I love you and want you to love Me with all your heart. How can this be done? Well, unite your heart to My Mother’s Heart and love Me with Her Heart. For Her Heart is a Flame of Love that is brightness itself. Her Love for Me is endless. It is a Heart that was created by and infused by Me with a Love that is pure and spotless. A Heart that is Immaculate. A Heart of a Perfect Mother, created for you and for all My family. My Mother loves without hesitation all the souls on the earth that love Her, and all the souls that don’t- everyone.”

“Try to imagine a mother watching her children being carried off by devils to Hell, never to return. This is why My Mother is pleading for prayer, for conversion, for peace. The souls, the souls! She needs your prayers and all those of Her children to stop the devils from taking Her children to Hell. How would you feel if you saw souls carried away screaming and not being able to help them? Well, this is what is happening because not enough prayers are being said.”

“Love Me with the Heart of MY Mother and pray with Her to the Father with all of your heart for the freedom of the souls that will be carried away if you don’t say the prayers for them.”

“Nothing opens hearts like love. It cracks hearts like a hammer to a stone.”

“The harvest is at hand. The clock is ticking. Soon, it will be very hard to convert. No more time will exist for many that will be taken in an instant.╬ And for the others, they will be in such a state of shock, that unless prayers are said for them, they will be lost also. So pray, pray, pray. Please live your consecration to the fullest. Become a true slave of Mine.”

“If you ask your Mother, She will tuck you in tonight; She will make sure you don’t get cold. She will station angels all about your house. The battle will continue while you are asleep.”

“Love will conquer the world. Your part is to love those with whom you live and work with and those I place you with.”

“My Mother loves you and desires you to place your life, your will, and your heart in Her safekeeping. She will watch over and protect you. She will present you to Me, your Lord and Savior.”

“The future will be different. Imagine this world without evil, without all the sin. This will be an earth where the father’s Will is done, not man’s, not the selfishness and stubbornness of human desires. You need to understand this. You need to transition into this type of life or you will be in for hard times. The adjustment period is now for the trials are already upon the world and only My Mother’s children who have made this adjustment are ready to be at peace, will be stable, will trust, and fully abandon themselves to God’s Providence in their life.”

“You need to be aware of the fact that all of your needs will be taken care of if you trust; but if you try to prepare and control everything, as most of you are so used to doing, then you will left in a state of utter confusion and be distraught. The only way to live is by Faith in Me and Trust that all things will work out for the good of those that love Me.”

“So the emphasis is to learn to, and strive to love Me, in all that you say, all that you do and all that you plan to do.”

“Please love Me with all of your heart, all of your mind, all of your soul, for I need you love in these troubled times.”

“Your focus must be to live your Consecration to the fullest and detach yourself from this dying world and begin to live in the Kingdom of the Divine Will by total trust and surrender and abandonment to My Will.”

“Please trust that My Mother will guard and protect you from all evil and lead you by the hand to the dawn of the new era, the ‘Reign of Peace,’ of Love.”

“My Love is consoling, it is kind, it is gentle, it is warm, it is sincere, it is joyful, it is Divine. So only think about what is important today, loving others.”

“Please realize the gift of peace. It will completely change your life. If you can live in peace, your whole life will be joyful. You will always be happy and your being will shine with My Love and Virtues. I know most of you don’t live in a monastery and I know that your life is full of activities, but this must not change or hinder your resolve to live a peaceful existence. Peace is the number one priority in life. It is the foundation of your interior life and without it your foundation will shake like a building in an earthquake. The earth will quake over and over again but you must not lose your stability. You must be calm; be serene.”

“The gift of peace is very, very precious and it takes practice to maintain it but it is My gift and if you depend entirely on Me, you will not lose it.”

“Any time you feel you are losing your peace, scream for help! I live in your heart and help you to stabilize, for I do not want you to be injured.”

“I want My Body to be strong for the upcoming trials ahead. Everyone needs this teaching. I know you have heard this before but I want it ingrained into your mind, your heart, your soul, for My Pure Love is your security blanket.”

“I send you on a mission each day of your life. If you live abandoned to Me, and strive to be guided by Me at all times, then you will benefit each day by the circumstances that I place you in and the souls I place you with will benefit, because I will love and shine through you. So as you walk throughout the day, realize you are both in training and on a Mission of Love.”

“Time is short so don’t get wrapped up in this dying world. Just do your duties. Do them with Love, with Peace, and for Me, and always do your best; but do them and forget them.”

“How do you become a nothing? Well, just think how awesome God is. I created the universe, I created the earth, all the surface features, all the life, all the animals, everything, and I AM in control of everything. Now, what are you in comparison to this? You are nothing and you must remain a nothing for you want to be humble and not fall like the devil did from Grace because he though he was something; for he forgot that everything he was and the glory he was at, was due completely to God, and the same with you.”

“I have blessed you with My Graces. You deserve none of them. You merit none of them. You have them because I love you and want to shower you with My gifts, and I AM God, and can do whatever I please, but I will not give anyone gifts if they are full of pride for they have to realize they are nothing in comparison to their God.”

“The important thing to concentrate on is being a nothing or realize you are a nothing and living surrendered to Me totally, so I can take control and live again on this earth in you, to love, to console, to care, to be a fireball of joy, of peace, of tenderness and I will choose what to say, what to do, what and how to act if you turn yourself over to Me. All day long you will be so surprised at what comes out of your mouth and how much you love others.”

“Do you realize the potential to save souls and the height in Heaven you can be raised to if you just implement My teachings? How can you lose? You can’t; except you will lose your ‘free will,’ your ‘selfishness,’ your ‘attachments,’ your ‘desires’ for power, control, and all the other worldly vices. So make it simple. Love Me with all your heart, mind, soul, and live in an abandoned state and you will see how happy you will be.”

“Don’t talk about anything negative; don’t watch too much news on TV because it is all negative; don’t presume about the future, just live the day with Me, for Me, in Me, in My Heart.”

“Love all those I place you with in a special way with sincere interest in their wellbeing and their life’s activities. I live in you. Let Me take control in every conversation, every activity of the day.”

“As a forest must burn to establish new growth, as a field must be plowed under and tilled for new seeds to be planted and grow, so it will be for the earth and all those living will desire that My Will, shall be done.”

“What a beautiful future for all those that persevere, all those that love, all those that shed their human will, their own wants, their own desires, their own pleasures.”

“Implement My teaching to you. Keep perfecting them, keep studying them. Make them the norm, not the exception, and as more of My children live in My Will then the quicker will be the total transition to the New Kingdom on Earth.”

“Peace. Make that the priority. Love. Let it flow. Nurture it. Surrender into My arms. Rest in My heart. I love you and will be with you everywhere you go. Let Me shine through in your conversation with others and with all your faculties, your smile, your eyes, and your manner.”

“I want you separated from the world. I want you to realize that the world gives no security. Only in My Kingdom of Love is there security for creatures, and the world is full of selfishness and misery, and to be attached to either creatures or the world, in any way, is to invite this selfishness and misery into your life.”

“You can never please creatures, and the world’s unending demands and needs. So you must live apart, detached from both, only connected as is necessary to function in this life. You must live abandoned to My Will. You must not let the demands of creatures lead your feeling and emotions. You must act and do and fulfill your vocational duties, yet still remain apart from a leading a life that is center in the world rather than centered in My Kingdom of Love and Peace and Joy.”

“This is a life of detachment; for if you are not God-centered you will not have the pureness of these virtues. Offer up the demands that are placed on you to save souls and meet these demands for others and to fulfill your vocation with unselfish love. This is your cross and you must carry it with joy, with peace, with love as I carried My Cross.”

“It is a martyrdom of your ‘human will,’ for doing things for others, and working in the world must be done as you are still part of the world. To this degree you must always keep in front of you that all things work out for the good of those who love God and you must offer up the ‘Unceasing Act of Love,’ and you must live one day at a time and, moment by moment, in an abandoned and surrendered state.”

“In My Heart you will find a refuge, a place of rest; for to know that in My Heart is Love, is Peace, is Joy even in the midst of all the craziness of the world. So enter into this haven. Walk enclosed in this protecting shield as you live and function in the world of My Love. My Heart is security, it is contentment, it is warmth in a cold, cold world of selfishness and endless demands and desires.”

“You are a nothing, a bunch of nothing, and being such, you can love others with My Love and you can be one with Me and you can rest in peace, and work in peace, and function in this world; so take advantage of your inheritance in My Kingdom.”

“Live as if only you and I existed, and love others as I place them in your path, but don’t let their wants and desires affect your peace and tranquility. Meditate on My Love for you and My desire to keep you apart from the world. I am jealous of any thoughts that are not necessary for your daily activities. I want your thoughts centered on Me so don’t think about other creatures or other things, or the future or past, only think of My Love for you.”

“My Heart is a spiritual structure, a place of protection, a room of storage of Love. Come and dwell in this place. Live in it. It has all you need to survive in this world and more. It will keep you in a state that will maintain your peace and will make you bright with virtues and wisdom. Oh, come through the door and sit and make it your home.”

“The devil is trying hard to divide you and your loved ones, those in your community. He is trying in every way imaginable but he can’t get anywhere if you stay at peace and turn it over to Me; so continue to do this and realize that I know the thoughts and hearts of your loved ones and am working on them. I love them just as much as I love you and I am caring for them too. Remember, how much I love you and I am not going to hurt you but I am making all things work out for your best interest. Offer up the pain you feel and know that it will be used for their spiritual growth and their protection.”

“My Heart is a symbol of My Love. My Heart is described as a place because it encloses those that rest there in a shield. This shield is My Love, which will protect you from all evil, for satan cannot stand Love. He flees with haste.”

“My Heart is a place of refuge because It is not of the world, but Divine, and knowing this you realize that enclosed in My Heart you will protected from all the worldly allurements.”

“To rest and dwell in My Heart you must maintain peace, calmness, serenity and you must trust Me and live surrendered to My Will for your life. It is only the ‘act of surrender’ that My Love will enclose you; for if you have any pride or ego I will flee and you will be on your own.”

“You have a choice. You can have a beautiful, peaceful day or you can be full of selfishness and anxiety. Your call! It is your choice because you have to check your thoughts; you have to strive to live as I am teaching you. You have to live abandoned to Me, moment by moment. Work on it. Concentrate on it, and ask for My Help all day.”

“Offer up the ‘Unceasing Act,’ try all day to love Me with all your heart, your mind, your soul and love your neighbor- all those I place in your place. This is your part of the triumph of Love in the world. Love will break the hearts of stone. Love will expel evil. With love there is order, with love there is peace, with love there is joy, with Love I AM present for I AM Love and your whole life must be devoted to Love, to Men people and nations because My Sacred Heart, the symbol of My endless Love.”

“I control all, I see all, and I desire only love from My Creatures. All things work out for the good of those that those that love Me. So concentrate on loving Me and I will take care of everything.”

“Love is called ‘Kingdom’ in the Divine Will Prayer Book because of the order it establishes and it is necessary to have Love to obtain all the virtues. Seek first the Kingdom of God and all other things will be given to you.”

“You were created because of Love, you were redeemed because of Love and you are being sanctified because of Love. I, your God, am Love- Love is the goal; Love is the prize, Love is the priority, Love is your life, Love is your security, Love is your peace, Love is the doorway to all the virtues and good habits, it is also order to this life.”

“Love can stop wars and heal wounds between people and nations because where there is Love there is forgiveness, and where there is Love there is caring for each other, and where there is Love selfishness does not exist, nor the desire for power or control, but only with Love is the desire to help and the desire to serve and your love is what I desire above all else.

“Love is My Plan for the new earth after the trial. Love is My Will, and My Will be done and the earth will be delivered from all evil because Love will vanquish it. Love is the key, Love is the focus. Put all the efforts of your life into Love- love Me and love souls.”

“Tomorrow will be taken care of as will the future. You are in My hands and I love you; so please, please, make Peace the priority and then I can have full reign.”

“With love all things are possible, for I AM Love. That is why Love is the common denominator; for all members of My Body have Love as the basic strength of their being and when members of My Body love together, then great things can be accomplished. Love makes it happen, for Love is harmony among My brothers and sisters. I need your community to unite under the banner of Love, love for Me and love for souls. All together with My Love, great things are possible. Love is the goal.”

“How many souls could be saved, how many souls could be given to God if your community can unite for Love of God and Love of souls? With this unity a mountain of Love can be formed in your religious community, and in your area with all My family. Why now> Because time is short and souls will be lost’ so unite, My children. You are brothers and sisters of My family. God is your Father, I AM your Brother, Mary is your Mother, My Spirit is your Sanctifier. Do great things for God together as members of this one family united by Love.”

“Get rid of all human wants and desires. Put on the Virtues of Heaven so unity among your brothers and sisters can be of a bond that can weather all the storms of this life now, and those of the tribulation period.”

“My Gift to each of you, is your brother and sisters of My family, those that do My Will; and My Will is to love each other unconditionally, unselfishly with My Love, the Love that knows no bounds, the Love that is not of this world, the Love that is pure without blemish. Do not reject one another. See Me in each of your brothers, in each of your sister, and love Me, and care for Me, and console Me, and you will see unity grow, joy will grow and peace will flourish and let all know My family, My Faithful Remnant, by their love for each other.”

“Live in My Peace or I will not reign. Love Me or today will be wasted. Let tomorrow and thoughts of tomorrow be far from your mind.”

“I live inside; you don’t shade out this brightness with the cares and troubles of the world. Live in union with Me; live in the cloud of My Spirit above the world, separated from the world. I want you to live in a different world, the world of My Love, of My Heart. It keeps you in a cloud of love, a force field of protection from the world. I know you live in the world, but don’t let thoughts of the world occupy your time. Think about Me, how much I love you, how I am taking care of you, how you can please Me. Think about My Life on this earth and My Passion but don’t spend time thinking about the happenings of your life or about what could happen in the future.”

“You are on a mission of Love. You are going to mess it up if you are thinking about the world so abandon yourself to Me and love Me and let Me shine through you. Be a nothing, a clear shell, a body with My Heart, My Spirit, My Will.”

“Bless those souls I place with you; with the heavenly aroma of your virtues. I have placed you in the field of souls to brighten their day and soften their hearts. Please, accept your mission of Love with joy and peace, and forget yourself so that you will reflect the Glory of God in all you say and do.”

“Please, contemplate how much Love I have for you and how much time you spend loving Me. Now, the later must increase, for loving me is the only thing that matters. To love Me is to live in Heaven while still on earth, for in Heaven, Love rules. There is no evil, no distraction, no cares, so live in Heaven while still on earth. My soul is like a parched desert. I have so few souls that love Me and put Me first in their lives.”

“Do you realize how lonely I am? I creature creatures to love Me and for the most part no one does. I am on a raft in a vast oceans of souls. I thirst for Love but there is none to be found. Please, be a fountain of Love that I can drink from.”

“I, your Jesus, am crying. I can’t find souls that love Me. They are all watching TV, shopping, or at the restaurant, or reading magazines, or bowling, or playing cards. Where can I find souls to love Me. I died on the Cross for these same souls and they have all left Me for their more important worldly cares and concerns. Please, don’t follow their lead.”

“Keep Me number one in your life and think only about Me, expect when it is necessary to perform your vocational tasks.”

“Please, cheer Me up. I am Jesus, your Savior. Put your arm around Me by walking with Me and talking to Me all day long. Enjoy My Company, My Presence, and My concern for you.”

“My Heart is broken; My Eyes are sobbing with tears of loneliness. Bring Me joy with your attention, with your focus on Me, and love Me, adore Me, praise Me. I AM your God. Turn your hours into Love for Me with the ‘Unceasing Act of Love.’

“Spread the word without hesitation. Be a living prayer. Put all your heart into it. Focus on it, love and pray for soul for soon the Ark will shut and I and My Mother will return to Heaven and the Father’s Wrath will be exhausted. So pray, pray.”

“Happy are those that live in and do My Will for they will live in My Will for all eternity. They will be brought forth through the trial safely and in peace and love. They will be stable. They will be calm, for they will trust totally and completely in My Love for them. They will walk in Light.”

“Pray for the coming of the Kingdom. Pray for more souls to make it. Pray for enlightenment, for perseverance, for peace through the trial. It will be yours if you totally abandon yourself in trusting surrender to My Love and detach yourself from the spirit to the world. Live the Gospel message. Live one day at a time. Live without worry. Seek the Kingdom of God. Love your neighbor. Sin no more.”

“Simplify your life! All that is necessary is Love and that is all that will be important in the new Era of Peace. Love will rule in all hearts; so begin today to live on the new Earth and in the new Heaven. Live in My Heart, live in a Cloud of pure Love.”

“Your Mother is raising you spiritually. She wants you to grow into a strong, caring, loving son or daughter of the Divine Will. All that is necessary is your heart’s intention to be pure, to be sincere. She has a perfect Motherly Heart. She will teach you, She will guide you, She will correct you, She will love you. Her desire is only to love you with the Father’s Love and raise you to be a son or daughter that She is proud of so She can present you to your Brother and your Dad, to the Holy Spirit, and to Their Family. You are only a little infant now. She will nurture you and feed you with the truths of the Will of My Father.”

“Try your hardest to be a perfect son or daughter by doing what I ask of you; and what I ask is that you love Me and love souls- live the teachings- live the Gospel- live Our Messages- live the examples of the Saints- live in accordance to the true teachings of the Church- those of My Mother’s beloved son, the Pope (Saint John Paul II), and those that still follow him in spirit.”

“The Holy Virgin is your Mother and God the Father has granted Her great power over the evil one and his followers, so run to Her, fly to Her, She will wrap you in Her mantle and there Satan will not dare to touch you. She can’t protect you if you don’t remain close to her at all times. You must stay at peace and calm and in prayer.”

“I have the whole day planned. Live and work in My Peace. Have a joyful day. Please, don’t concern yourself about your business or work cares or concerns of your community or any other future type of problems; I have all under control. Practice peaceful existence. Offer up the ‘Unceasing Act of Love’ and live the moment intensely.”

“I love you. Have this in your heart and in your mind at all times. Trust in My Love for you. I will care for you and provide all your needs- everything. I will always be there, for when you are weak, I AM strong. Be My Apostle of Love. A message of good news, the news of the greatest importance, that of My Love, for My ‘Little Nothings’- for My Children that are striving to live the Gospel and do My Will. Their lives are in My Hands and they will be taken care of each day, each hour, each moment, if they just trust Me and love Me and do My Will.”

“The only thing that is important is saving souls. All the worldly matters and cares are way down on the priority list. When you are with others you must think only of their salvation. Love them and pray for them. Do not judge them or think about how they fit into your worldly life; for you have no worldly life. You are only here in the world to complete your mission, and that mission is to love God, love your neighbor, and do My Will.”

“How important it is to be in the Divine Will program of learning the teaching for the new Era of Peace!”

“Sunday is My Day, a day of rest. A day to become closer to your Lord and God, a day to pray, a day to read. Live, moment by moment, so your thoughts are clear; don’t overeat; protect your mind from worldly thoughts and distractions.”

“I AM Love and My Love will conquer all evil. It will rule, it will be the only important factor in all activities of all men and all women in the New Era. In this Kingdom, Love will be taught, Love will be practiced, Love will be the important consideration in all decisions made.”

“The new Earth, the new Heaven will be a place of joy, a place where families will always be the number one social unit as the cells are to the body. For the family is My design for mankind where Love must reign and Peace must be established and all the members must love and worship God together. Pray for your family, and for it to be protected from all evil.”

“Raise your family by being totally dependent on My Love and trusting Me for all your family’s needs. If you family loves God then all things will work out for its good.”

“Unite your suffering to Me. I always loved My persecutors and forgave them. Learn from My example. Creatures that step on you are for your practice in and of the School of Love, of forgiveness.”

“Decrease so I can increase. I have a plan for you as I do for all My children. The plan can be implement to the 100% stage if you don’t interfere and block it with your will. Live a moment at a time; be in awe of God’s care for you.”

“The Catholic Church is the Rock; the gates of hell will not triumph over Her.”

The Dangers of Psychics, Fortune Tellers, and Reiki “Healers”

“Children, when you are concerned about the many misleading powers in your world today, ask this simple question. ‘Does the power for the alleged claim come from God the Father who sent His only Son into the world?’ If the answer is no, then the power is being obtained from the enemy. Does this sound confusing to you? It should not sound confusing, because it is clear. If you are still confused, it is because you do not want to relinquish some habit that has gotten hold of you. Be vigilant here, brothers and sisters. There are impostors everywhere and the impostors do not seek the good of your soul. The enemy, in the form of these powers, seeks the destruction of anything that is holy in you. The enemy seeks your soul. The Holy Spirit within you will object and warn you if you have been nourishing the Holy Spirit. Do not become involved with anything that reminds you of fortune telling or healing. These habits are sinful. You will be held accountable. Speak out against them, warning your brothers and sisters. Christians in the world have become easy targets of the enemy’s followers because they are lukewarm. Not My little apostles, though. You will know the truth and speak it loudly. Warn others, please. We are losing souls in this manner.” -Jesus in Volume 10: Jesus Speaks to His Apostles

There is a growing trend of alternative forms of new age spirituality that have often replaced the traditional practices of Christian prayer and devotion. Though this might seem attractive at best and harmless at worst, in this post, I aim to strongly advice those caught up in such practices, persons, books, or objects (such as crystals or charms) to put them down and cut ties with them, once and for all. It is true that the power of the devil and his fallen angels, or demons, is minuscule compared to the power of the Holy Trinity, and as such, should NOT be feared. Yet if allowed the reign of our free will, the enemy of our salvation can easily influence, deceive, and ultimately corrupt the soul an otherwise intelligent and well-meaning person, and any others they may associate with/have influence over. These practices are simply spiritual doors you don’t want to risk opening.

With the help of Our Loving Lord, you can find true healing and forgiveness, holiness and peace, that comes not from the evil one and his false and fleeting powers, but from Heaven, our eternal homeland and the vast family of God. Consider, for example, the following is an excerpt from “Freed and Healed Through Fasting” by Sister Emmanuel Maillard of Medjugorje, entitled, “Fake Healers”:

“It is especially popular to go to “healers.” yoga masters, reiki masters or healing touch therapists in order to alleviate symptoms of illness. But from where do these “healers” receive their abilities? Many receive them from an unknown source. When, for example, someone visits a healer because of a bad left knee, it may get better, but then his right one begins to ache. The illness has simply been displaced. It has moved to another area and will become more serious. The person then returns to the healer, who may again recite several incantations or formulas and “heal” the second pain’ then a third illness will erupt, or perhaps something worse. In short, people who visit “healers” are never healed. Their problem only moved from the body to the heart, and then from the heart to the soul. Starting from a physical illness, it suddenly develops into temptations of suicide, incredible hatred, or deep depression. Why are we finding so many of our youth today committing suicide when apparently nothing in his or her life could have motivated such an action? Parents with good intentions take their children to “healers” looking for a miracle, and their children suffer the consequences of bad “medicine.” This bad fruit can manifest itself not only as an illness but as a lack of motivation. Suddenly a spouse becomes unbearable to his wife and every idiosyncrasy is an annoyance: his way of talking, of walking, of eating his doughnut. All at once a devout person is unable to pray. People with a zest for life no longer enjoy life.

The Church and the different religious communities within Her have seen many bizarre cases of these “healings.” She shoulders the burden of caring for the “after-sales service” of the unauthentic cures. The Church has found that the “healer” often recites incantations, pronounces strange words (sometimes mixed with Christian prayers), uses secret formulas, does massages and may mention the name of the traitor, Judas. Once I asked a fake healer, who converted and renounced his job, to tell me his secrets. He said that his “healing power” came from someone who received it from someone else, who received it from someone else. 

By tracing the history of these “powers” we see they come from satan and are given to a witch who then spreads them! Do not be mistaken- satan pretends to heal. Actually, he mimics Jesus’ healings. In the Gospel, Jesus tells us that the false prophets of the latter days will perform spectacular signs and wonders, even to the point of seducing the chosen ones. This is reality! satan doesn’t give presents away for free. He only deceives us in displacing the sickness, making it worse.

Several times, through the visionaries, Our Lady said to go and see doctors, but never to see healers. Why? She knows who is behind them! I beg anyone thinking of going to a healer, please don’t go!!! Even if they have a statue of Our Lady of Lourdes in their house, with a rosary in her hand, do not bargain your life for healing at any price. Chances are you will only end up sicker than before, and quite probably penniless!

If you’ve been to see a false “healer” for yourself or for your child, go find a priest and ask Jesus’ forgiveness. Also, ask the priest to pray so that all the bonds from darkness that might bind you (or your child) will be broken by God’s Word and blessing. Very often, a good confession is enough to break the chain of evil because there we renounce evil and all practices of darkness. You can also renew your Baptismal vows. This is an effective means to break all ties with evil, with satan and his works. The healings obtained through prayer and fasting are real, unlike the false cures that satan and his servants offer. The Lord gave us true healing not only for our bodies, but also our hearts, our spirits and our souls. When He doesn’t heal, He has another plan and blessing for the sick.”

If you or anyone you know has willingly participated in any potentially occult practices, in addition to having your confession heard as soon as possible to reconcile your relationship with God and cleanse yourself of any demonic activity or influence, I recommend also calling upon the holy names of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. After all, as St. Don Bosco once said, “More than anything else, these three names terrify and vanquish the devil.”

Frequent visits to the Blessed Sacrament as well as the recitation of the holy rosary, fasting on bread and water, reading scripture, praying with friends and family, and having your house blessed (as well as carrying holy water and blessed objects) are other powerful ways to combat the attacks of evil on you. Finally, the following is a prayer to pray to Our Lord for His gift of discernment and salvation, from the Book of Truth as revealed to Maria Divine Mercy:

“The first seal is the apostasy”
Wednesday, March 7th, 2012 @ 15:40

My dearest beloved daughter tell My children that no man has the knowledge or the authority to reveal the truth contained in the Book of Revelation.

No matter how knowledgeable they may consider themselves to be, it is only I, Jesus Christ, Saviour and Redeemer of mankind who has the authority to reveal, to the world, what is contained in the Book of Truth.

Only, I, the Lamb of God has the right to deliver the truth, given to my disciple John the Evangelist, the instrument of the truth, to the world today.

The first seal is the apostasy seen not only among unbelievers but among those who profess to know Me and those who publicly proclaim their love for Me.

This is the time when the truth faith will be twisted, when you My children are presented with a watered down doctrine which is an insult to My teachings.

I tell you children that when you see new false faiths and religious doctrines spring up you will know that this is now the time for the first seal to be revealed.

Look around and what do you see? Religions that pay homage to new gods which you have never heard of. Science fiction based religions which amount to nonsense and which are empty of substance. Spiritual entities that are not of this world but which many believe represent the Heavenly realm of My Father.

Heed now for you are living in fantasy.

None of these metaphysical beliefs represent the truth.

Any doctrine which teaches you the importance of putting yourself before everything else is a doctrine which springs from Satan.

Do not listen. Turn your backs on this cruel deceit.

Those who seek out false gods and devote their lives by idolising false gods are lost to Me.

Unless you stop and pray to Me for guidance I cannot save you.

You and all those who knowingly withdraw now from the king of darkness will be given the gift of discernment if you ask me in this Crusade Prayer (36) Help me to honour the true God:

Jesus help me for I am lost and confused

I do not know the truth of life after death

Forgive me if I offend you by honouring false gods which are not the true God

Save me and help me to see the truth with clarity and save me from the darkness of my soul

Help me to come into the light of your mercy.

Amen.

There is only one God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in one the Holy Trinity.

Any other god comes from Satan no matter how attractive the guise.

Please do not waste your eternal life by pledging your allegiance to those faiths which honour new age practices including Reiki, Yoga, new age meditation, tarot cards, clairvoyancy, psychic readings and angel worship connected with ascended masters.

Slowly but surely these practices of the occult are being accepted not only by your society but by Catholic and Christian Churches.

These false religious doctrines are spreading so fast they have consumed billions of God’s children who have now found so much false solace within them that they no longer acknowledge the existence of the one true God.

YOUR JESUS
