Monthly Message To The World

August 25, 2016

“Dear children! Today I desire to share Heavenly joy with you. You, little children, open the door of your heart so that hope, peace and love, which only God gives, may grow in your heart. Little children, you are too bound to the earth and earthly things, that is why, satan is rolling you like the wind rolls the waves of the sea. Therefore, may the chain of your life be prayer with the heart and Adoration of my Son Jesus. Give over your future to Him so that, in Him, you may be joy and an example with your lives to others. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

For deeper reflection:

Book of Revelation
Chapter 12, Verse 17

“Then the dragon was angry with the Woman, and went off to make war on the rest of Her offspring, on those who keep the Commandments of God and bear testimony to Jesus. And he stood on the sand of the sea.”

Our Lady is here as Refuge of Holy Love. She says:

“Praise be Jesus.”

“My angel, you are seeing events unfold now in the present that I confided to you in the past. Still, mankind chooses not to see the connection between Creator and nature. It is as though the flood waters are rising around the ark but people view it as a ‘natural’ occurrence. You have not seen the worst of it.”

“Please understand, I sorrow for those affected. I have prayed for them and continue to do so. The world around you is changing. It is foolish to hang on to it.”

February 11, 1999

Jesus comes, His Heart exposed.

“I am Jesus, born of the Virgin Mary.”

“I invite you to contemplate for the moment a ship on the sea. The ship is your soul. The safe harbor it seeks is that of the United Hearts. The current that moves the ship along is Holy Trust. If the ship tries to move against the current (trust), it takes a greater effort with which to reach the harbor (United Hearts).”

“The more the soul trusts in itself and its own efforts, the more holiness eludes it. Being one with the United Hearts is holiness. Cast yourself upon the provision and protection of the United Hearts. It takes far less effort to achieve this than to live in fear and foreboding.”

June 25, 2000

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“My sister, I tell you faith and trust go together. One is not present in the soul apart from the other. And neither can exist outside of love. If faith were a ship sailing on the sea, trust would be the ballast keeping it afloat. The little rudder which would direct the ship of faith and trust would be love.”

“Make it known.”

October 24, 2000

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“I invite you to understand that trust is like a ship on a stormy sea. If the skill of the seaman works in cooperation with the wind and waves, he can guide the ship safely to port. The sailor represents the soul struggling to trust in Me. The wind and waves are doubts and self love which lead to fear and trust in self. When they are surrendered to Me through love and trust, I can take charge of each problem and bring good of it.”

“Make it known.”

December 5, 2000

Jesus and Blessed Mother are here with Their Hearts exposed. Blessed Mother says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

Jesus:

“I am your Jesus of Mercy, born Incarnate.”

“I have come to help your nation understand what is taking place in its midst and all around it. Your nation has been like a ship on a stormy sea. All around her the storm of controversy raged, pitching the vulnerable ship first one way, then another. As this began, I lay asleep in the bow [of the ship]. But when the storm became apparent and gathered strength, I was awakened through the power of prayer and the outcry of the righteous.”

“Now I stand erect – My Hand raised to calm the storm and quell the fears of those aboard this ship [this nation]. For every element of nature falls under My domain, and prayer is the force that awakens My power to change hearts and so too the world.”

“In this election the face of Satan was revealed. He did not want peace, but controversy. He did not want unity, but division. He did not want life, but death. Only the unwise could miss seeing this. But in his efforts to conquer, he united the righteous and he himself will suffer defeat.”

“Trust in the power of prayer, for in it lies the victory of Our United Hearts.”

“My brothers and sisters, every ship needs an anchor, so too every nation and each heart needs a firm foundation of Holy Love. My prayer is that all hearts open to this message of Holy Love and that it reaches the farthest corners of the earth.”

“Just after midnight on December 12th I am sending My Mother where she will appear at Her Lake of Tears and speak once again to all people and all nations.”

“And so today We are blessing you with Our Blessing of the United Hearts.”

March 12, 2001

“Thank you for coming. I have awaited your arrival.”

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“I have spoken much to you in this penitential season of Lent about surrender – surrender of your own will – surrender to the Divine Will of God. Understand that your will and your wants are the same. Because you see the future with human eyes, that is, imperfectly – what you want may not be what God sees you need. You were created to know and love God, and to share eternity with Me. Your wants very well may not lead you to this end. But the Will of My Father is perfect, eternal and all-encompassing. How foolish not to trust in His Will for you, then. If you do not trust it is because you do not love as you should. Love is the virtue that shines through every virtue, especially trust.”

“The soul that trusts only in himself – his wants and his efforts – is like a ship without a rudder cast about on the sea of self-love. It is tossed upon the waves of empty goals and aimless efforts, never finding the port of peace.”

“But the soul who accepts all things as from the Hand of God is already at peace. His wants are My Wants. His will is My Will, which is always the Will of My Father in Heaven. Love, trust, surrender and peace follow in this order. The more Holy Love comes to perfection in your heart, the more you trust – the more you surrender, the more you are at peace.”

“You will please make this known.”

April 23, 2001

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“You are asking in your heart about the statement in the Magnificat, …’He will scatter the proud in the conceit of their heart.’ Here is the meaning: The proud soul is like a ship without sails upon a stormy sea. It is tossed to and fro by every whim of free will. This ship has no compass; that is, its direction is not chosen wisely – just as the proud soul chooses his own way instead of the Way of the Divine Will.”

“Such a soul thinks too much of his own opinion, too much of his reputation, too much of his wants and comforts. The soul who truly loves Me loves the Will of My Father. He chooses littleness, regards everyone as better than himself – more holy, more worthy. His soul is like a ship on a calm sea with a strong sail and a worthy compass. He will not become lost or confused, for he allows himself to be led by the Divine Will. He knows how to sail the ship of his soul according to the Laws of God.”

September 22, 2002

St. Thomas Aquinas comes. He bows to the tabernacle saying:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come to help you understand the difference between presumption and hope. They are opposites.”

“Presumption takes for granted–grace. The presumptuous person thinks he has what he does not have. He does not allow in his heart space for the action of God’s Divine Will. He would be like a ship caught in a turbulent sea that thinks he is safely docked.”

“Hope, on the other hand, is a virtue that practices expectant faith. The hopeful person believes God can accomplish anything if it is His Will to do so. He entrusts his needs and petitions to the Lord, and allows Him to answer as He wills. In hope, he may even thank God ahead of time for whatever the Divine decision may be. The difference is–he does not presume the answer to his petition. His would be the ship lost at sea–praying with expectant faith to find a safe harbor.”

“It is quite important to realize that Satan can mimic any gift of the Holy Spirit. The presumptuous person believes every inspiration to be from God, and does not test the Spirit. Remember, the only virtue Satan cannot imitate is humility, for he does not even understand it. So, in humility, be certain that you do not presume you have a certain gift or virtue.”

March 9, 2007

I see the large Flame which I know as the Heart of God the Father. He says:

“My daughter, give praise to Jesus.”

“Do not allow the authoritative way in which I speak to you conceal My Paternal concern for the welfare of all creation. Most especially I desire the eternal salvation of all of humanity.”

“This is why I have willed that these Messages of Holy and Divine Love come into the world at this time. They are an anchor for the Remnant Faithful and a sword of truth thrust into the heart of the world. Too many souls are now cast adrift on the sea of lies Satan has spewed upon the world. Many laws, many religious practices are based on the enemy’s lies.”

“The United Hearts reveal My Truth. Listen to them.”

March 12, 2010

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“I tell you solemnly, from the beginning to the end of time Holy Love has been in the Heart of My Father – the Eternal Now. Holy Love is like an Ark of Truth upon the stormy sea of compromise and confusion.”

“Holy Love is not raised up or formed from the heart of man, but from the Divine Hand of My Father’s Will. The time is right now for Holy Love to come to the forefront, dispelling lies and deceit, raising up a new generation in Holy Love.”

April 17, 2011
Palm Sunday

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“I have come to reinstate in your hearts confidence in the Refuge of My Mother’s Immaculate Heart. Her Heart is the certain stronghold of safety offered to the world during these most troubled times. My Mother’s Heart is impregnable to the dangers of the soul. It is spiritual well-being that must be sought after and maintained. For what would physical security gain you if your soul slipped to perdition?”

“Satan is in anxious fear over future events which you may never experience. Even if difficulties arise, you do not see now how the grace of My Provision will provide. While you are busy preparing for any possibility, the grace of the present moment is slipping away.”

“In Noah’s day, he prepared at God’s command. He constructed an ark amidst jeers and disbelief. Today the ‘ark’ is given to you – My Mother’s Heart. You can only enter herein through trustful surrender to Holy Love.”

“I have not abandoned you. I have prepared the way. I have spoken to you the Truth.”

May 23, 2011

Jesus is here with His Heart exposed. He says:

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“My brothers and sisters, just as this building was your shelter during this most recent storm (hail – high winds and rain), Holy Love must be your port of safety and your anchor amidst the storms of life. Know for certain that, if you are in My Mother’s Heart, I am providing for your every need.”

“Tonight I am blessing you with My Blessing of Divine Love.”

June 9, 2011

Ship is the soul

Our Lady showed me the picture above; then She said:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“Today many are focused on the future – what they will eat, how will they survive – and so on. They place all their trust on what they themselves can do now to provide for future necessities. While some cargo in the ship is good, if too much is loaded into the ship it will sink. So it is with the soul that becomes distracted with what may come. He sinks beneath the waters of trust.”

“The soul that carries a light cargo remains buoyant upon the sea of trust. He provides prudently what he may need in the future. He does not hoard cargo. He always trusts God in every need.”

“The best preparation is preparation of the heart. Prepare spiritually; then you will know what commodities you may need, and what you will not need. My Spouse, the Spirit of Truth – will lead you.”

December 21, 2011

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“I have come to tell you that the Truth, which is one with Holy Love, can be likened to a lighthouse perched upon a rocky precipice. Like the house built upon rock, it cannot be washed away when assailed by waves of compromise and erroneous opinions or decisions. Furthermore, the Light of Truth reveals the dangers of the evils all around it, guiding the ship of the soul into the safe harbor of the Immaculate Heart of My Mother.”

“While storms may rage against the lighthouse of Truth, it stands steadfast – undaunted – never wavering. Wayfarers find their way through the darkness of evil – always depending upon and guided by the Light of Truth, which never dims to suit peoples’ erroneous opinions or decisions. The Truth is your secure beam of light amidst every storm of controversy.”

“Souls become ‘shipwrecked’ when they accept in their hearts any compromise to the Truth. It is then they are dashed against the rocks of Satan’s errors. More and more, they are enveloped in darkness until they cannot find their way into the Light of Truth. The stormy sea of controversy washes over them, blocking all Light of Truth. It is then they drown in error.”

“Keep always your eyes on the Light of Truth. It is only within this Light you will find salvation.”

April 5, 2012
Holy Thursday Adoration

Blessed Mother says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“Dear children, I am presenting to you My Jesus here tonight, for you to love and to confide in. Remain close to Him, sharing with Him the Cross and the Resurrection. He will share with you His Glory – His Victory. You will be triumphant in every present moment over seen and unseen enemies.”

“Remain close to Jesus through your efforts in Holy Love. This is your ark in the midst of controversy and confusion. Time will prove this true.”

“When many find no place to turn, you will find a safe harbor in Holy Love – the Refuge of My Heart.”

September 25, 2012

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“Your country is like a sailboat adrift on a turbulent sea. The boat does not know it is dependent on a good wind to carry it into port. It does not look for this wind or await the direction of such a wind.”

“In a similar way, your country is adrift upon a sea of liberalism and compromise. The wind it should be searching out is the breath of the Holy Spirit, which would guide your nation into the port of righteousness. But, as a nation, your country governs without the breath of the Holy Spirit and, consequently, is misdirected – crashing upon the rocks of error.”

“It is difficult to make a little sailboat seaworthy after such a collision. However, in the case of your government, efforts must be made to piece it back together.”

February 13, 2013
Ash Wednesday

Blessed Mother says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“Dear children, today as this Lenten season begins, I ask you to take into your hearts the needs of your Spiritual Mother. I recommend to you the conversion of all sinners. Further, I ask your prayers and sacrifices for the strengthening of the Remnant Faithful.”

“I invite you to understand that Holy Love is a Remnant Ministry. It is not unlike Noah’s Ark constructed amidst much controversy, but of unprecedented need when the hour of fulfillment came.”

“We are building a spiritual ark – one prayer at a time.”

October 30, 2013

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“I have come to help you to understand that prayer is never wrong, no matter where it is offered. The prayers offered here, at this site, have withheld My Hand of Justice and continue to do so. The controversies swirling around this Mission are all due to the compromise of Truth.”

“This is a spiritual refuge just as My Mother’s Heart is a spiritual refuge. Many jeered Noah as he built the ark My Father commanded him to build. Many mock this Mission which is the embrace of the Ark of My Mother’s Heart.”

“Recognize the grace that I tender forth here. Be a partaker of this grace – not an onlooker – not one who opposes Me.”

“I come to resurrect the Truth and to lead all to victory.”

May 28, 2015

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“I have told you that My Mother’s Immaculate Heart is Holy Love. Today, I invite you to realize that Holy Love – My Mother’s Heart – is the Ark in which all must seek shelter from the flood of the compromise of Truth that is consuming the world in these times.”

“This is the season when all are called to enter this Ark of Truth – the Ark of Holy Love – where your hearts will be protected and your faith preserved. Do not be distracted by who is believing or not believing – by who is following after you or remaining behind. The door to My Mother’s Heart is open to all, but each one must make the free will choice to enter or to remain behind and be consumed with the confusion of the day.”

“This flood is not like the flood in Noah’s day. It is a spiritual flood of deceit – invisible to those who do not seek the Truth. To those who choose to live in Holy Love, the flood of deceit is all too visible.”

“Noah, in his day, prayed for those who did not make it into the ark – those who mocked him and did not believe in what God was asking him to do. So, I am asking those of you who have chosen to enter this Ark of Holy Love – My Mother’s Heart – to pray for unbelievers. They may be jeering and mocking this Mission* today, but in the future, they will find themselves drowning in the compromise of Truth.”

* The ecumenical Ministry and Mission of Holy Love at Maranatha Spring and Shrine.

Read 1 Timothy 2:1-4+

Synopsis: Pray for all leaders in high positions of authority that they lead a godly, respectful life conformed to integrity and Truth.

“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, godly and respectful in every way. This is good, and it is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the Truth.”

Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel

Our Lady comes as Mary, Refuge of Holy Love. She says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“Today, I come to you with yet another analogy highlighting the importance of Holy Love and Holy Humility on the spiritual journey. These two can be likened to a small lifeboat on a raging sea.* The waves of the compromise of Truth and the abuse of authority rage all around it, tossing it to and fro. Those on board must be certain to wear the life jackets of God’s Mercy. Any rupture of the little vessel is life-threatening and opens the way for the boat to sink. In life, any acceptance of compromise in love and humility jeopardizes salvation.”

“This is a simplistic parable, but one that portrays vividly the dangers all around every soul these days. If the soul perseveres in humility and love, he will eventually reach the calm waters of Truth and sail safely home. Many souls do not recognize the grave dangers around them and, consequently, sink in the sea of compromise and abuse of authority without waging a fight.** This is why I am with you today to shed light ahead of each of your steps. This Mission of Holy Love is your life jacket.” ***

“I come to help you recognize the dangers of your environment.**** In this effort is my prayer that you will comprehend the difference between good and evil. Not to recognize this difference is to sail into all that endangers love and humility. The Messages given here are your compass around danger.” *****

*Reference to Holy Love and Holy Humility as virtues.

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“The ones who willingly come here* despite opposition have placed their trust in the Truth brought forth through these Messages.** God will not be outdone in His generosity. Each soul who believes will be given the grace to help others believe. His faith will be under My Protection as I draw him deeper into My Immaculate Heart.”

“Unbelievers will continue to be tossed about on the waves of controversy – unable to drop anchor in the safe harbor that is Holy Love; for how can you live in Holy Love if you oppose it?”

“Upheavals in every segment of society will prove over and over My Son’s Wisdom in sending Me as Protectress of the Faith and Refuge of Holy Love. Those who live in and for the world will be drawn farther away from the Truth which is the victim of every sort of distorted compromise.”

“Do not be frightened when you realize those whom you trusted have betrayed you. It is all part of these times and must take place before My Son’s return. As the evil in the world becomes more visible, God’s Provision will unite the Remnant Faithful. Therefore, do not fear situations or circumstances of the day. Pray for Wisdom and you will know what to do and who to trust.”

Our Lady comes as Mary, Refuge of Holy Love. She says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“Last night you experienced a storm here* of biblical nature.** It was similar to what Noah experienced on the ark for all those days. Imagine the fear such a storm promoted in hearts – even those safe on the ark. Today, all is quiet and mankind has yet another chance to prove his loyalty to God by living in Holy Love. Those who perished in the flood of Noah’s day did not receive any more chances.”

“Today, I invite you, My children, into the ark of My Immaculate Heart which is Holy Love. Herein lies your refuge and your strength during the storms of life. If you remain in My Heart, you will not be tossed about by every storm of controversy and frightened by the noise of confusion. Take advantage of these days of another opportunity towards your salvation and holiness. Do not wait for others’ acknowledgment of dangers or the Refuge of Safety that is My Heart. Last night’s storm could not have been predicted in the way it visited earth. Greater still are the trials which lie ahead.”

**We had a storm with continuous lightening and continuous thunder. We never remember a storm like it.

St. John Vianney, Cure d’Ars and Patron of Priests says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“I spent my whole vocation on revealing evil and encouraging good. I have come to tell you that good cannot be victorious in hearts and in the world unless good unites in an all-out effort against evil. So long as Satan can divide those who live in the Truth, he will be strong and the good will be weakened.”

“Souls need to look for common ground in the battle against evil. Do not attack or criticize each other. Attack the evil that threatens world peace. The ones who thumb their nose at the law and do not hold themselves accountable to the law deserve criticism. It is warranted. They are the enemy.”

“You cannot win any war unless you confine your efforts to defeating your enemy. Take heed.”

August 25, 2016

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“The person who lives in the Truth lives according to unadulterated facts. He does not base his opinions upon the compromise of Truth to accommodate the redefinition of sin, moral values or honesty. He does not allow his opinions to be swayed to suit hidden agendas founded on ambition or self-interests.”

“The Truth is unchanging. Hearts who choose Truth must be unchanging as well.”
