COMMENT (by a soul):
I wanted to write this short article, because oftentimes, people will not realize that there are connections between different visionaries/locutionists that Our Lord and Our Lady have chosen. These connections are not made known because the chosen messengers are humble and so, talking about these connections are not within their character. However, I, a soul, believe that it is important to share these connections, because they support the credibility and authenticity of these chosen messengers regardless of whether they are approved or not by their local Catholic Bishops. So, in this short article, I want to speak about two visionaries that I publicly promote on this blog, MaryRefugeOfHolyLove, and their connections with other chosen messengers. They are Anna Marie of the Apostolate of the Green Scapular (http://www.greenscapular.org) and Prophet John Leary (http://www.johnleary.com).
Anna Marie of the Apostolate of the Green Scapular
I, a soul, have never met Anna Marie, but as I have believed in the heavenly messages of the Apostolate of the Green Scapular since 2003, I have communicated by email and by letter to Anna Marie and the apostolate volunteers throughout the years. I believe that Anna Marie is a genuine visionary and I have no doubts in promoting her heavenly messages.
Anna Marie first began receiving visions and heavenly messages when she was on pilgrimage to a farm in Conyers, Georgia, USA, where now-deceased visionary, Nancy Fowler, was receiving messages from Our Lord and Our Lady (http://ourlovingmother.org). I am not certain but I think the apparitions at Conyers are disapproved by the local bishop. However, although I am not familiar with the messages given to Nancy, I do believe that they are worthy of belief. What is interesting, is that the visionary, Catalina Rivas of Bolivia (http://www.loveandmercy.org), who does have approval from her local Catholic Bishop, first began receiving her visions and heavenly messages at Conyers, too. All of the books of Catalina’s messages have the Imprimatur of her bishop. So, really, this situation just demonstrates how discernment can be faulty among our bishops in regards to Marian apparitions. It is really up to the faithful to further investigate for themselves whether a chosen messenger or not is worthy of belief.
Anna Marie of the Apostolate of the Green Scapular is neither approved nor disapproved by her local bishop. She has a spiritual director, whom I believe is actually, an exorcist priest. Anna Marie and the apostolate volunteers do a lot of work in spiritual warfare and deliverance. Their website has a lot of spiritual resources and I recommend them for those who need such help.
Finally, I wanted to make known, that although Anna Marie is not permitted by her spiritual director to read heavenly messages from other chosen messengers, in 2011, Anna Marie received a private message from Our Lord validating the messages given to 7th messenger, Maria Divine Mercy (Book of Truth). It was because of this fact, that I, a soul, first heard of Maria Divine Mercy and began to follow the Book of Truth. And truly, it is because of Maria Divine Mercy, that this blog, MaryRefugeOfHolyLove, even exists. (Also see, Why promote the “Book of Truth” when it is not approved by the Church?, https://veritas-vincit-international.org/2017/10/24/why-promote-the-book-of-truth-when-it-is-not-approved-by-the-church).
Prophet John Leary
I, a soul, have been blessed to have met Prophet John Leary and his wife, Carol, twice in recent years. Both times, I was struck by their profound humility, and it is because of their humility, that I know that they would never directly promote any connections they may have to other visionaries and chosen messengers. So, I am going to do it for them, at least, with the few connections that I am aware of, as I believe it is important as these connections give further credibility to John’s messages.
Firstly, John did not start receiving visions and heavenly messages until after a 1993 pilgrimage to Medjugorje (former Yugosalvia). I believe that is important to know because although we do not know yet the Ten Secrets of Medjugorje, the heavenly messages given to John certainly hint about what the Secrets may consist of. People who read John’s messages online may not realize this, but John receives at least once a day, a message from Our Lord. His daily message takes place during Holy Communion at his daily Mass. Before John receives his message from the Lord, he actually receives a vision first, which are documented in his books through Queenship Publishing (http://www.queenship.org/category/leary-john.html), but are not described online on his website. And then, besides his daily vision and message from Our Lord, John receives numerous heavenly messages during his weekly prayer group meetings and during his time spent at Holy Eucharist Adoration, which he also tries to do daily.
Meanwhile, although John’s local bishop does not publicly approve or support his heavenly messages, John does have a spiritual director who is a Catholic priest who is approved by his bishop. It is part of the stipulations that John has agreed to in order to stay in good standing in his local Catholic diocese while continuing to promote his messages. Part of the stipulations also include being prohibited from publicly speaking in Catholic churches and on church grounds, but he can speak elsewhere such as private homes, hotels, convention centers, bookstores, etc.
Now, earlier this week, a blog follower asked me if it was just a rumor that Maria Esperanza believed in the messages given to John from Our Lord. Maria is the now- deceased famous mystic connected with the approved Marian apparitions at Betania, Venezuela (http://www.mariaesperanza.org/home-page). And I told this blog follower, that no, it was not a rumor, but it is a well-documented fact that John and Maria and their families are good friends. John and his wife, Carol, had actually visited Betania a few times, always in the good graces with Maria’s family.
Also, John and his wife are good friends with the family of the now-deceased Ukrainian mystic, Josyp Terelya (http://www.spiritdaily.net/terelyadies.htm). Josyp was actually a very gifted artist and the cover of John’s books at Queenship Publishing, as well as the illustrations within the books are all the work of Josyp. In addition, John and his wife knew now-deceased chosen messenger, Carol Ameche of Scottsdale, Arizona, who is connected with Our Lady of Emmitsburg.
In conclusion, here are some heavenly messages given to John Leary concerning Maria Esperanza, Josyp Terelya, and Carol Ameche. God bless!

Jesus said: “My son, the picture of Maria Esperanza and Geo Bianchini was a gift from Juliet that you have placed on your altar. Geo died recently, and your conference was your tribute to a great man. You used to get messages from Maria for a while at Holy Communion time. You have made many trips to see Maria and Geo. You had the Bianchini family talk to your group using Skype, and they sang three songs for you. Several daughters gave some words to your Gospa Prayer house group. Give thanks for this experience.”

Our Lady said: “My dear children of this conference, you are also celebrating the First Anniversary of this place as the Betania IV Shrine that was crowned yesterday. You have a deep loving remembrance of your experiences in Betania, Venezuela when you saw many blue butterflies that represent my very presence among you. You are united with Geo and the Bianchini Family and their hospitality when you visit them. Even at this shrine you have pictures and a sense of Maria Esperanza’s presence among you. Many beautiful talks are encouraging you to constantly renew your loving relationship with my Son, Jesus, and me in your daily prayers. I especially want to encourage my families to pray together my rosary to protect your families from the attacks of the evil one through the distractions of the world. By making your consecration to me and my Son, Jesus, you can focus more on your earthly mission to save souls for heaven. It is by your good works and prayers that you will be good examples to others to have devotion to me and to worship Jesus. When you call on us in prayers, we are here to answer your petitions for what is best for your souls. Rejoice at this shrine that you can share love with your fellow pilgrims in life, as you walk with us on your path to heaven.”

Jesus said: “My people, when you come to heaven, you will only see young people in their thirties in their soul bodies. Everyone here in heaven is singing and chanting My praises and among them is Maria Esperanza. She was always full of life and had a constant love for Me and My Blessed Mother. Even now in heaven she is full of life and love for Me and her family. This parading of young children with their flowers represents how all of heaven desires that these young innocent souls need to be taught how to love Me and obey Me for the rest of their lives. All the saints, including Maria, have a mission to help pray for these souls and to encourage their parents and teachers to bring them up in the faith. I love the little children, and I am sad when people mislead My little ones into sin or kill them in abortion. So I call on My faithful to be like little children in order to come to heaven. Also, you all have a mission as well to bring the little children to Me so they can know and love Me. Rejoice in the gift of the souls of the children, but you are responsible for saving these souls by your teaching.”

(4th Anniversary of Maria Esperanza’s death)
Jesus said: “My people, Maria Esperanza is with Me in a high level of heaven as a reward for her being faithful to the mission that I gave her. Many have this sense that she is in heaven, but even one day My Church will also recognize her very sainthood in heaven. Many have heard about Maria, but her holiness and love will reach even more people as the thousands of people that you saw in the vision. Maria will be instrumental in many physical and spiritual miracles to come, even as there were miracles while she was alive. This is an honor for all of you in being able to celebrate the Fourth Anniversary of her death, which is really the feast day of her entrance into sainthood.”
Maria said: “I thank all of you for honoring my feast day of life where I am now interceding for my family and friends with Jesus to bring you an abundance of his graces and answers to your petitions. I am thankful to Jesus for the honor of being in heaven so I can help you more now. I love my dear Geo and all of my children and grandchildren very much, and I am with my family every moment of every day. You are receiving my love, direction, and encouragement through my messages. I am helping my family’s foundation in their formation and guiding them on their mission. Rejoice with me as I share my love with all of you, and I encourage you to always love one another as Jesus desires all of us to love Him and our neighbors.”

Jesus said: “My people, you are very familiar with the account of My healing of the paralytic man because you, My son, have a large picture of this scene on your mantle that was painted by Josyp Terelya. The four men and the paralytic man had great faith in My healing that they would open the roof to let him down amidst a large crowd. On seeing the man’s faith, I healed his sins and then his human condition. In many of My healings, I healed the whole person, both body and soul. The Jewish leaders questioned if I could heal his sins, and they even accused Me of blasphemy, because only God could forgive sins. I proved to them that I could forgive sins, when I had the man pick up his mat and go home in full health. This healing astounded them since they had never seen such a healing. Later on, I gave this healing of sins power to My apostles in the sacrament of Reconciliation. I died on the cross to allow My Blood sacrifice to redeem all of My believers from their sins. You can be healed of sin in your Baptism or in Confession. I have recommended frequent Confession, at least monthly, so you can keep your souls pure, and you would be ready to meet Me at your judgment. Believe that I can heal you in your sins and sickness, and you could also be healed as the paralytic man was healed.”

(Exultation of the Holy Cross)
Jesus said: “My son, all of the crucifixes in the visions have a special meaning for you. Today, you celebrate My Exultation of My Holy Cross even on Sunday, because My death on the cross has been your salvation of your sins. I love My people so much that I came to the earth to share My Word and to sacrifice My life as a spotless offering to atone for all the sins of mankind in the past, present, and future. I have shown you My love by dying for you, and I pray that My people will love Me, obey My Commandments, and repent of their sins in Confession. The first cross of the martyrs is why you did the walk to share in the glory of their offering of their lives to God as martyrs for the faith. The second cross is a remembrance of the many times that you have visited Mount Calvary in the Holy Sepulcher Church in Jerusalem, Israel. The odor of sanctity in this spot, is a testimony of the holiness of My place of Crucifixion. The third cross is a drawing of My crucifix by Josyp Terelya that you had placed on every cover of your books. Josyp suffered much for Me for so many years in Russian prisons. Having My crucifix on the cover of your books is also a testimony of how I am the center of your life in your mission to save souls, and bring My Word to the people of the end times. I love all of you who are faithful to Me, and are even ready to suffer martyrdom for My Name’s sake.”

Jesus said: “My people, there are some people in non-Christian countries that were imprisoned and tortured for their faith, but they were not martyred. These faithful suffered a long enduring ‘dry’ martyrdom for not giving up their faith. Many who lived behind the Iron Curtain had to suffer this persecution. Even your deceased friend Josyp Terelya suffered imprisonment as an example of a ‘dry’ martyr for the faith. Pray that all of My faithful will be strong in the coming tribulation so you would rather die than give up your faith.”

(Mass intention for Josyp Terelya)
Jesus said: “My people, Josyp was a kind and generous man, but he was very steadfast in his faith to Me, even when he suffered many years in prison for Me. He is an example and an inspiration to all of My faithful. I treasure all of you, but souls like Josyp are a joy to My Heart and that of My Blessed Mother. This vision of coming to heaven to give your petition to Josyp is also an example to others that you can present your petitions to Josyp as an intercessor to Me. At times when you pray for people, you act as intercessors for them. Your prayers receive even more attention when they are received through the saints of heaven who act as spiritual intercessors for your petitions. Give thanks and praise to Me that you have been graced with such a man of faith as Josyp.”

Josyp said: “John, I am happy to see all of my friends and family here as well as the clergy. I thank all of them for coming to share their respects with my family. I send my blessings over all of you and I will be praying for all of your souls and protection. I suffered much in the prisons of my homeland for my Church and this was very acceptable to me. This was my purgatory on earth, but I would do it again if it were possible. I am sad in my heart to see how many suffered persecution in my homeland, but they remained strong in their faith. The sad part is how in places of freedom as in Canada and the United States that the people are falling away from their faith. Instead of coming closer to Jesus and Mary, the people are paying more attention to the distractions of the world. I plead with all peoples to get down on their knees and pray for the conversion of sinners because the time to repent is short. I bless all of you.”
Jesus said: “My people, Josyp is fortunate to have his funeral right before Holy Week because he has shared in My suffering on the cross, and now he is celebrating My Resurrection with Me in heaven. Josyp and many people have suffered persecution for My Name’s sake and some have given their lives as martyrs for not denying their faith. Some, who were not physical martyrs, as Josyp, were ‘dry’ martyrs for the faith. A time is coming soon in the tribulation when a worse persecution will befall you and you will see an evil worse than you have ever seen. Again you will see more martyrs give their lives instead of denying their faith. Others will be led to the safety of My refuges. All of My faithful will unite all of your sufferings with Me on My cross and your crosses will become much heavier. Just as Simon helped Me to carry My cross, so I will bring My graces to each of you to make you strong in your faith, and I will assist you in carrying your cross in the end days. Call on Josyp and Me to help you through this trial of your life.”
Friday, April 3, 2009
Our Blessed Mother said: “My dear children, I am very proud of my dear Josyp in all of our experiences together and in all of the pictures of me that he painted. I especially want to share two dear moments in Josyp’s life that touched me deeply. I appeared to many people in Hrushiv and Josyp was very faithful in sharing my visions and my words to him. At another time Josyp was being frozen to death by his captors in his cell, and he prayed for my help. I miraculously kept him warm that night and astounded his captors, and actually brought one closer to God. Josyp’s work is not ended, but will continue on from heaven. When you pray to Josyp and me as intercessors, you will see many miracles of grace in both physical and spiritual healings. He sends his love to Sam, his children, and all of his friends. Give praise and thanks to my son, Jesus, for the gift of Josyp’s life to all of humanity.”
Thursday, April 2, 2009
Jesus said: “My people, thank you also for displaying Josyp Terelya’s picture of Me as you depart for his funeral. I have given you a message how I wanted to be a hidden Messiah without any fame for Myself. Others did not want to admit that I was the Messiah even when I performed miracles and rose from the dead in My glorious Resurrection. Once My apostles were given the gifts of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost, they were emboldened to go out into the streets to shout that the Kingdom of God was upon everyone. They witnessed My words in the Gospels and I put St. Peter in charge of My Church where the popes have carried on My words of salvation to all peoples, even until today.”

(St. Mary Magdalen)
I could see a flashback to when my wife and I did a recording with Carol Ameche as she gave us a word of knowledge. She died just recently. Carol Ameche said: “I am happy that you allowed me to say a few words to you. I am joyful to be free of all of my pains and limitations of the body. I was so happy to be greeted by Jesus, Mary, and my deceased relatives at my death. I know my death was sudden and a shock to some, but now I can keep praying for all of you. I felt a little sad that I could not accomplish more for my Jesus. I love Don and my family on earth so much. Please tell them how much I love them, and I will be watching over them. Jesus is confirming the messages of the end times that He has shared with His prophets. I thank you, Carol and John, for all the good times that we had together. When you can share your faith and messages with each other, it was as if we are all one big family with Jesus and His Blessed Mother. I did have a brief visit in purgatory, but Our Blessed Mother was generous to me in helping me come to heaven. She begged her Son because she knows how much I loved both Jesus and her on earth. I will be waiting to join all of you in heaven one day, and continue your dedication to Jesus in helping souls come to heaven.”
