“True Devotion of Mary”

Mary

I move about the world, always trying to make my presence felt, inspiring those who turn their hearts to me and filling them with divine wisdom so they make all their decisions in the light. What I am doing by these messages is to offer this light to all. A person does not need spiritual sensitivity. By these words, they know my thoughts. They do not even need to be seeking me. By these words, I seek them. This is the extraordinary purpose of these words. The help that I give regularly to devout people I give now to everyone who reads these messages.

Yes, O reader, I want to influence you. I want to enter your life. I want to guide you. I am your Mother, even if you do not yet know me. Even if you have not yet awakened to the woman who would bring you forth to birth and nourish you at her breast. I say “would bring you forth” because for some this has not yet happened. Let me explain.

Everyone has a physical mother. All spent months in her womb and came forth from her womb. Concerning this, you had no choice. Everyone also has a heavenly mother who would bring you forth to heavenly life, but this you must choose.

So, I invite you right now to choose me as your heavenly mother. Once this choice is made, all my powers of being a mother begin. Also, as you constantly choose me to be your mother, as you ask me each day to be your mother, my care and protection over you increases. This is the secret which I am now revealing to you.

You are a child and you need to be nursed. As you grow, I will help you to walk. And as you come to adulthood, I will guide your every step. This is called “The Secret of Mary” and has been revealed, especially to St. Louis de Montfort. I call all to learn this “True Devotion”, so that the spring of living water is yours. Learn it now. Do not delay. So many helps and favors are not distributed because people do not know about the True Devotion of St. Louis de Montfort. Read his books and they will open your eyes to hidden treasures.

“Mary’s Special Invitation to You”

Mary

I wait and I wait for the world to turn to me. I speak and I speak, hoping the world will listen. I search and I search, trying to find hearts that would receive all my blessings. I will not cease to wait and to speak and to search, because I have a mother’s heart which can never forget the child of her womb.

Now I search in extraordinary ways. I do not limit my words to those who gather for worship. I go everywhere. I go to every nation in the world by these modern means of communication, but my messages are quite different.

When someone uses the Internet to send their message, the word goes forth for anyone in the world to read, but the person does not go forth, only their word. When my word goes forth, I accompany it. Yes, reader, as your eyes are now upon my word, I stand at your side. I touch your heart. I am already pouring out my gifts.

I am searching for you and I have found you. If only you would open your heart to me, I would enter your heart. Your heart is a very special place. There is a gate, a door into your heart which is closely guarded by your free will. No one can enter unless you are willing and no one can leave unless you eject them. This is the greatest mystery – the human heart with all of its choices.

All of your life, you have chosen whom to accept and whom to reject. This is a very special moment. You have a visitor at the gate. I stand at the door, and by these words, I knock, not just once but many times, not just softly but with great clamor. If you do not hear, I will knock louder. If you do not open, I will not go away. For years I have been searching for you. In the years of your sinfulness, I waited. In your years of questioning, I spoke. Now, at this moment, when so many of God’s graces have made you ready, I come and knock.

Look at your life. Has there not been a series of graces, a gradual turning away from the darkest moments of your life, as gradual, almost imperceptible dawning of light? Now, I am closer than ever before. I am the noonday sun and I want to bring you into a fullness of light that will always remain within you. Take the step. Seek out confession. Rid yourself of your sins and you will have stepped into a new day that will remain with you, all the days of your life.

“Calming Fears of the Darkness”

Mary

The world is entering a time of great darkness and it is a long road back into the light. Many will get lost and never find the light, but I promise to guide everyone who trusts in me and listens to my messages through whatever darkness they encounter. I will tell you what I do.

When a person comes to me, I first quiet and still them. They are filled with fears and believe that they cannot continue. Sometimes, it takes a long while to quiet these fears because anxieties multiply themselves. They beget images that oppress. Everything is blown out of proportion. The fears enter the deep regions of the heart and paralyze the person. This power of darkness, these lies of Satan, need to be put to rest. I speak simple words with a mother’s voice because the person in this state has become like a helpless child. (But a helpless child at least has a mother while so many in the world do not know that they, too, have a mother.)

This comforting must happen again and again, because, in the darkness, fears multiply. So, I bring some rays of divine light. I recall the eternal truths to the person. The heavenly Father has not abandoned the world. He is drawing the person close to himself and he has sent me so that no one loses the way.

In this darkness, the person feels my presence. They do not see me but they know I am there. Sometimes, I give them great faith and peace in the middle of the trials. At other times, I bring about a sudden and surprising rescue from the difficulties. In both cases, the person knows that I am with them.

And so, we wait together, getting through one day at a time, surviving even amid the most difficult of times. Soon, the person grows strong in faith. They have survived the initial darkness. The fears are calmed and they return to their usual way of life. They are surprised. They can function. They can continue. The first waves of darkness have not destroyed them. There will be other waves but they know they have a mother who will help them. Blessed are those who know that I am the Woman, the powerful Mother of all mankind. How unfortunate those who think they are orphans.

“Becoming a Child of the Light”

Mary

I watch over all my children but if they do not turn to me for light, then my protecting power is limited because I lead them mainly by light. Man has a free will but this is so often limited by the darkness of his intellect. In that darkness, the will sees only a few choices, none of them good. The will cannot choose what the intellect does not see. This is human nature, rational in seeing the possibilities and free in choosing among those possibilities.

However, if the possibilities are limited to earth, then the will can choose only earthly goals. By this constant choosing of earth, the darkness comes. The clouds cover over the heavenly realities. The person no longer sees a God who helps and enlightens. Man is left on his own, limited to an earth that cannot fulfill his dreams.

Piercing the Clouds

So, I come and I speak of heaven. With those words, a new light pierces the clouds. I am piercing the earthly clouds and revealing a new world. Let me describe this heavenly world that offers man the light that he needs to live in hope.

Man, you are not alone. You have a heavenly Father who created you. He wanted to come close to you so he sent his Son, Jesus. I am the mother of Jesus. He is real. I gave birth to him. He entered a very dark world but he brought a kingdom of total light. He brings out of darkness and into light whoever believes in him.

Removing Great Darkness

The greatness darkness is your sins. You carry that darkness within you. My Son will forgive your sins. His name is Jesus which means “One who saves from sins”. Once your sins are forgiven, you possess a great inner light. You see that you are a child of God, with a very important dignity. Your eyes are opened. You see the works of darkness (some which you yourself committed) and you no longer want to share in those works.

You are new, a child of the light. Once Jesus transforms you, your intellect is in light and your will has many new choices and you desire only the things of light. Do not worry about the darkness that is outside of you. Let Jesus remove the darkness that is inside of you and all will be light. I will be there for you.

“Baptizing With the Holy Spirit and Fire”

Mary

As I speak, the waters of mercy flow from my Immaculate Heart, going forth to all whose hearts are open to receive. I speak so more hearts are open and can receive. Let us begin.

As my words first touch the heart, it seems hopeless. The water seems so frail and the obstacles seem so great. How will such a tiny stream even cleanse this heart that has been filled with so many sins or with so many disappointments, failures and heartaches?

Just the Beginning

But the stream is just beginning. The person has heard only the first words. Even here, some little problems are removed and new freedom comes.

The person begins to see the power of this stream. They see what they can do, what sins they can remove. Suddenly, my words and their personal efforts accomplish much. The person sees changes and new hope.

Then comes the next step, the sorrow for their sins and a seeking out of the priest. This does not happen at first. There is too much darkness. But when the light enters and hope springs up, then the person is ready.

Continue to Read

There is so much more. They will continue to read these messages. The words will mean so much more because I have drawn them close to my heart. Progress becomes quite rapid. It is no longer the water of my words, but the fire of my heart which is purging them.

When they have reached this divine fire, they are at home. They have arrived. No need to go any further. They will just remain in that divine fire and be made holy. John baptized with water but my Son baptizes with the Holy Spirit and fire.

“The Father Searches For You”

Mary

All the doors are open. No limit exists to the mercy and goodness of the Father. This is what I come to preach. This mercy will reach into the greatest darkness. Those who feel they have no opportunity for forgiveness will experience the warmth of divine love.

This is the new era which I am announcing to those hidden in the greatest darkness of sin, to those who for so long have given themselves over to the worst of vices, to these and many, many others, I proclaim that a new day of God’s forgiveness is dawning.

The Father’s Voice

No one will hold back this divine stream. It will flow everywhere. You will hear the heavenly Father’s voice saying, “Do not be afraid. I have come for you”. The merciful Father of the Prodigal Son waited and looked for his return. When he saw him afar off, he ran and embraced him. But even this is not enough. In this great time of darkness when so many of his children have left his house, the heavenly Father cannot just wait and look. He must go forth. He says, “I will search for my lost sons and daughters. I will find them wherever they are. Some are sick, burdened and despairing. Others are strong but their hearts are empty. Others know that they have lost the faith that they had as children.”

Search for You

The Father will search for you, O lost soul. He will not wait for you to come to your senses and say, “I must return to my Father’s house”. He will not stay at home. He will go forth. He will come into your world. He will show up at your door and he will say, “Come back. I will restore you to your place in my kingdom. I will once more give you the divine life which you have squandered”.

Already he is knocking at the door of your heart. Listen. Open the door and return. I will be there to help you.

January 12, 2012

“The Gift of Light”

Mary

My words are true and those who listen will walk a true path. They will not be fooled nor search for what is illusion. They will be on a solid road. That is why I speak.

The Effects of Lies

Lies are infections that weaken the body of a nation. When there are so many lies, then the nation is sick, very sick. The lies are poisons, and as long as they lie hidden, they affect the body. America is built on so many lies. It claims that a fetus is not a person. This is the big lie which opens the door to so many evils.

Truth is a painful medicine and no one wants to swallow it. The remedy is put off and the lie spreads unchecked. So, I must speak.

Wanting the Light

I call everyone into a light where truth can be seen clearly. This light varies according to the recipient. For the good person, the light is gentle and urges them to greater good. For the sinner, the light is harsh. Not that I make it harsh but the light must expose what is evil. For the nation, the light must be very strong so all see and all can repent. I always offer my light but some condemn themselves to darkness because they do not want the light.

Now, I come to the heart of my teaching. You must ask for the light. That is the secret. Certainly, the light can come at any time but a sincere heart which asks will always receive the light. They will always accept the light, because they desired it before it was given.

When a person or a group or a nation asks me for light, I always give it in abundance. I give the light immediately, even though it takes time for the person to realize that they have the light. So, do not put off this easy task. Just ask for light and believe that I give it to you. This is not hard. Do it now. Do it often. I will always, always give you light.

January 14, 2012

“The Path to Light”

Mary

When I come to anyone, a peace settles into their heart and the darkness does not inflict pain, even though it still remains. I say to the person, “Follow me” and then I lead them to light. Yes, this is the way that I save those who say the prayer, “Mary bring me into light”. Let me explain.

When the person asks me for light, the darkness is pierced immediately. The person has called upon heaven and heaven always responds. A ray of light descends from my heart into their heart. Not only that, I myself come and am present.

Even if the person is surrounded by dark circumstances of various kinds, like the death or sickness of a loved one and this enduring situation seems to have no answer, they must pray and look inside their hearts. I will come and begin to stir within their hearts. They must hope and believe. They must listen for my guidance.

The Ways of Light

Sometimes, I will send someone, an angel of my light, with the answer. At other times, the person will see what will be of help. We will work together until I lead the person out of the darkness into light.

Notice that I do not necessarily scatter the darkness (although this, too, happens). Most of the time, I bring the person out of the darkness. The situation remains the same, but the oppressive darkness (which is always the work of the evil one) is left behind. The person can now face the difficult situation with a heart bathed in the light of faith. That is my gift, a faith that brings light even if the situation does not change.

January 15, 2012

“The Light of Conversion”

Mary

Why does the person not allow me to lead them into light? Is this not the greatest gift – to live in light? Yet, there are so many obstacles. First, the person does not realize that they are living in darkness. They think that darkness is light. This is the “wisdom of the world” which is foolishness to God.

So many, after coming into the light, see their past foolishness and say, “How did I ever think that way?” They have become wise, children of light.

It is only slowly that the scales of darkness fall away. When people pray, “Mary, bring me into your light”, I immediately begin to remove these scales, gently and slowly, so the person can adjust to the light.

A Conversion

Then comes a great moment, called by many “the moment of conversion”. By allowing me to remove some scales of darkness and by coming out of the deep darkness of serious sins and addictions and by taking some little steps into the light, the person is ready for the great gift of light. I do not delay. As soon as a person is ready, I bestow the great light. Let me describe that moment.

The person has chosen the light and has made some progress. Their heart is trying to turn away from earthly darkness to the heavenly light. This turning is so important because the will needs to be open and searching. As soon as the person is ready, I flood them with great light. This is a life-changing moment which they will never forget.

Suddenly they see the great value of heaven. They see how they have wandered. They see the divine mercy which did not let them fall into total darkness (when that was a distinct possibility). They see how God’s hand has led them to this moment. They are overwhelmed with thanksgiving. A gigantic light has been placed at the center, yes the very center, of their soul. It goes forth to their emotions and to all their inner faculties. What a gift and what a moment. I will explain more later.

January 16, 2012

“The Stages of Light”

Mary

When the person arrives at the place of light, a peace fills them. They know that they have received the gift. What must they do to safeguard the light? First, they must hide it deep within their heart, like the world hides a precious jewel. They must not expose it to those who would steal it from them or to those temptations that could cast them back into the darkness. This is a very precarious time because the light has not yet taken root.

They must find others who are in light and will support them. They must find someone who can guide them on their spiritual journey and they must mark off clearly the doors of darkness which they must keep closed.

Next Stage

In all of these actions and decisions, I will be with them because I want them to be children of light, who enjoy the light and who do not lose it. As time goes on they will become very familiar with the light and all that it demands. The powers of darkness will recede and will lose their attractiveness. The darkness will seem evil and offensive. When this happens, it becomes even easier to avoid.

Final Stage

Eventually, the light takes total control. All the faculties act in light. Habits of light are developed and the power of light is everywhere. At this stage, the person has become truly a child of light. The beginning process is complete. They know they have been led out of darkness into light. Now, they are ready to walk the path of perfection.

“How to Pray From the Heart”

Mary

I put before you choices of life and death. I am not speaking of earthly life and death, but of eternal life or eternal death. These are the choices made each day. Does a person wish to live with God forever or are they willing to lose eternal life because of some earthly satisfactions that are illicit? These are the daily decisions, life with God or life without God.

How horrible is life without God. (That darkness begins on earth.) How blessed is life with God. (That happiness begins on earth.) This is why I speak. I want to lead many into eternal life.

God is not far away. You need not travel a thousand miles to find him. He is already in your heart. Wherever you go, even when you flee from him, he is there, waiting for you to turn to him. That is the secret. That is all you need to do to find God. Really God finds you. Just turn your thoughts to him. I will show you how. Picture for a moment, a story from the gospel. You know some stories. If not, then read the gospels of Jesus.

Praying with the Imagination

Picture Jesus as a baby in my arms, or as a young boy in the temple, or being baptized in the Jordan, or preaching to the crowds, or praying in the Garden or dying on the cross. Any of these scenes will do, whatever you are attracted to. Use your imagination for a few moments and speak to Jesus from your heart. It might only be a short prayer but it will be from the heart. Congratulations. You have begun to walk the road of divine light. Be led to do this often. Just a short prayer where you picture Jesus and speak to him from your heart. That is truly a turning to God. Do not forget, I will always be there with you.

January 18, 2012

“Eternal Light”

Mary

Man must put away senseless and useless things and come into full wisdom. There is so much striving for what passes away, and so little thought given to eternal life. Eternal life is the fullness of divine light, so I will describe it fully.

Life on earth always ends in mortal death. The body’s task is over. The soul which God created when the body was conceived now lives a separate existence. It is no longer united with the body, although on the resurrection at the last day, the soul will be reunited with its body.

The Created Human Person

The soul was created by God and is made for God. (This soul is the human person). So, at the moment of death, when the body is no longer a fit receptacle, the soul returns to the God who created it.

Sealed By Its Choices

However, much has happened in those intervening years, from the moment of conception to death. The person has lived on earth, has been intertwined with many forces of good and evil, has made choices, has committed sins and, sometimes, has sought forgiveness. Obviously, the soul is much different, formed by years of choices and experiences.

That is why I speak. The soul is made for divine light and during these many years, had the opportunities to choose light and to live in light. However, if it has chosen darkness, then the moment of death seals those decisions forever and ever. That is why I say that man searches after the passing things and does not seek the eternal gifts of light for which his soul was created. I will continue my teaching on this path of light. I am the mother of light and I have no children of darkness. Many are in darkness right now and they must become children of light before it is too late. Always, the choices are urgent. Do not forget your prayer, “Mary, make me a child of light”.

January 19, 2012

“What Should Be Left Behind”

Mary

I put before you choices of life and death. These are important choices which are made every day. I speak to guide these daily choices.

When a person is in darkness, they make foolish choices, taking what is unworthy and setting aside what is truly valuable. When a person does this every day of their life they discover like Peter that they have fished all night (sometimes with unbelievable energy) but they have caught nothing. Oh, their nets are full. They took in many things. They might have even gained a fortune, but they fished on the wrong side of the boat.

Filled With Earthly Wealth

They fished on the earthly side and not the heavenly side. Their nets were filled to overflowing but only with earthly valuables. O reader, you might look around your home and see so many valuable things, all of which you earned and paid for. They are truly yours. You won them. But have you purchased also the valuables of heaven? What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul? So, speak about your soul.

What is in Your Soul?

A moment will come when you will die and must leave your earthly wealth. You will take with you only what is in your soul. What is there right now? First, there are sins. Yes, you have committed sins. You do not want to take these sins with you. So, you must seek forgiveness. Take a moment. What sins come to mind? Do not be afraid to allow them to surface because, then, you can ask forgiveness.

If need be, write them down. Make a list. Now bring each sin before my Son, Jesus. For each sin, ask for his forgiveness. Will he forgive you? He is just waiting for you to ask. Just ask and they will be forgiven. For Catholics, there is a greater gift. They can receive Jesus’ pardon in the sacrament of confession. What must you after this? I will talk again, later.

January 21, 2012

“A Child of Light Lost in Darkness”

Mary

Many, who walk the path of darkness, need only a little light because their hearts are good. It is their intellects which are darkened. I speak these words so this darkness is scattered and they can see the right path. Others need greater light because their hearts are given over to darkness. Yet, even these, if they immerse themselves in my words, will receive light for both their intellect and their heart. Here, I do not just scatter the darkness but I pull them out of the darkness which they cling to. Let us begin. All can be helped.

Going Back and Forth

A person who first enters darkness knows that they have lost some light. Some turn back immediately because they hate any darkness. Others find the darkness agreeable. So, they go back and forth, from light to darkness and then into light and back into darkness. They can do this for years. Their hearts seek the light but they also find some darkness quite to their liking. To these I want to speak first, because they need to stop compromising. Yes, that is what you do. You compromise yourself and you hurt me very much. You know who you are. You have received much light. You come from a family that was filled with light. You were trained in the light, especially in your youth. You always saw yourself as a child of light.

The Door Closes Behind You

Now, the world has attracted you into a darkness and you go back and forth. It is time for a decision. You cannot keep going from light to darkness and back to the light. At some point, and this is very serious, you will take your usual trip into the darkness, thinking that you can easily return to the light, and you will discover that the road is blocked, the door has shut behind you and you are where you never wanted to be. You are a child of light who finds yourself in a darkness that can never, never be your home. If this is you, call out to me now. “Mary, make me a child of light”. I will come. Yes, I will come.

January 23, 2012

“A Light That Goes On and Off”

Mary

The lights go on and off. Sometimes, there is a moment of understanding and the person sees clearly what they should do. Then, suddenly, the light goes off and the person returns to the reality of the darkness in which they live every day.

Moments of Light

O reader, you must see the importance of those moments of light. Even though they seem to last but a short time, they show you a way out of your darkness. They are my gift to you and I will teach you what they are and how to gain their full effect.

The light that you receive comes from heaven and it shows you your life as the heavenly Father has planned it for you. Unfortunately, this light gets quickly swallowed up in the darkness of the world that surrounds you. When I give you that light (even for a moment), you are seeing another world, a different world. That world is where you belong, where I want to take you. Now, I will tell you what to do.

Increasing the Light

When you experience that light, do not set it aside. Ponder the light. Draw it into your heart. Remember what you felt and what you experienced. Ask me to increase the light and to bring it more often. The Father is trying to place heaven in your heart so that, even in the darkness of your world, you experience inner light.

One more thing. This light is important for your family. As this light becomes established in your heart, there will be light in your home. You will be a child of the light. This comes from heaven above but is received here on earth in the stillness of your heart. I will be there. I am the Woman of divine light.

March 15, 2012

“Entangled in a Darkness”

Mary

Do not turn your back on what you believe. Many times, a person is filled with truth and actually walks in the truth. Then, an attraction comes which delights them and even fascinates them. They know that this attraction is forbidden and seeking it violates all that they believe. However, they do not immediately dismiss it from their minds as dishonorable and unworthy of their beliefs.

Straddling the Fence

Instead, they straddle the fence. Their life is supposedly in the light, but their heart has been captured by the darkness. This is the state of so many because the modern world has so many such attractions and to resist these demands constant vigilance. So, I will address this issue.

You are my child. Your heart is good and you want to do what is right. You want to be counted among the blessed, but you are caught in a struggle. You never believed that you would be so entangled. This is not you. This is not what you ever wanted to be. Yet, you must face the truth. You have become entangled, even engrossed in what is sinful. You keep it hidden because it is not what you want. Yet, you do not send it away. You do not cut the ties. You allow this evil to have some place in your life. It is always there, lurking in the back of your mind as something you might enjoy when your obligations are fulfilled and when no one is looking.

No Compromise

Do not delay. Do not compromise. This must be cast out of your life. It has already robbed you of much spiritual riches and if you continue to tolerate its presence, it will eat away more and more. You will continually pay a higher price and the day will come when there is no turning back. It will control you. All the while, you will think that this is of little importance.

O child of the light, cast out the darkness. Never, never say, “It is just a little darkness. It can be tolerated. No need for action”. I am the woman clothed in the sun and I want to clothe you completely in the sun but you block my gift by clinging to this darkness.

March 19, 2012

“Seeking a Home”

Mary

I open up to you the human heart. How complex it is! Even the person is not aware of what goes on in his own heart. It is known only to Jesus who understood well what was in the hearts of men. Even when he was acclaimed he did not give himself to their hearts, knowing that human hearts are so easily able to change.

O reader, there is great darkness in your heart and only on the surface is there some light. If you would allow me, I would place light deeper into your heart. I would reclaim many parts of your heart for the light. That is how you become a child of light, about which I always speak. So, let me begin.

The Inner Civil War

Light is truth. In truth, the person sees things as they really are. So, for a moment, let me cast the light of truth upon your heart. What do you honestly see there? Only you are privy to your inner desires. Only you know the attractions of your heart. Within your heart are two sets of desires and these cause a civil war within you. Some desires rise up to heaven wanting to love God. Other desires seek earth and want to cling to all that is selfish. When the heavenly desires lift up your heart, you experience a human freedom and a divine peace. When earthly desires burden your heart, you feel overwhelmed and discouraged, lost and far distant from your Creator.

This is the plight of man and reason for all of his problems. Because he is made for God, his heart searches and searches. He knows that earth is not his home. He is in exile. He has in his heart memories that he cannot reconcile to his present existence. Memories of another existence, memories of life with God.

A Picture of Heaven

How can this be? How can man remember a previous existence? I am only using this as an image. Every person was created by God at the moment of their conception but God existed forever. The Loving Father placed into everyone’s heart a picture. When a child is born, the parents have a home and a room all prepared. Only as the child grows does he see and appreciate this home provided for him. So, God prepared a heavenly home and he places into everyone’s heart a picture of that heavenly home and a powerful desire to return to that heavenly home and to the heavenly Father from whose hands every person came forth. This is the greatest mystery of the human heart. It desires a home which it has never experienced and will never be content until it regains that home.

“Words to Sinners”

Mary

Many are taken up with this pastime or that goal, and they forget why God created them.  As they wander from my path, they suffer hardships that need never have happened.  They even inflict hardships on others because their life is out of control.  All of this could have been avoided.  Their life should be filled with earthly and heavenly happiness.  Instead, it becomes like a wineskin that holds no wine.

Leaving the Road

Yet, I watch and watch as so many of my children leave the road of virtue to follow the attractions of vice.  All are entangled in bonds that they cannot break.  In sorrow like a mother who sees what happens every day.  Let me speak to this issue.

Because of its great attractiveness, sin ensnares very quickly.  Even a person trained in virtue, who has followed virtue for a long time, can become entwined in forces that claim them, pulling them away from all that was taught to them.  Those who feasted on the bread of angels now are quite content with the worldly bread that can never satisfy them.

Powerful Forces

What is the problem?  They are pulled in so many different directions.  Even if they resist, they do not have the strength to resist all that the world and the devil throw at them.  They are assaulted on every side by the most powerful of forces.  The lure of great attractions increases every day.  There are more and more doors into the sinful.

O reader, if this is you then listen to my words.  I will come for you, no matter what sins you have committed and no matter what sinfulness fills your life.  List them all – lust, greed, murder, selfishness, abortion, divorce, infidelity, prostitution, homosexuality, theft, lies.  Need I go on?

Make your own list of what you have done.  Never, never say that your life is hopeless, that you can never save your soul.  I know the road of sin that you have taken and I know the road back to goodness where you want to be.

“Rejecting Jesus’ Gift”

Mary

These words flow from the sorrows of my heart.  Sorrows have a power to go deeper than other thoughts.  They pierce through until they reach the center of the heart.  Today, I share with you all of my sorrows, from the least to the greatest.

First, I see so many of my children starving and dying.  So few come to their aid, busy about so many other things.  Those who have much, do not even think about those other countries, who have so little.  Look into this.  I will stir your heart and you will discover true ways of helping those in need.

Second, so many of my children do not know the basic teachings of the Church.  They are ignorant of the scriptures and have no desire to read them.  They walk in darkness and do not realize it.

Finally, and most important, there are so many who have no life within them.  They are the living dead.  They live but not God’s life which Jesus offers them.  This is my greatest sorrow.  If only man were filled with God’s life, then everything on earth would quickly be restored.  There would be a new earth.

I do not come just to give messages.  I come to give life.

Man is the only creature on earth who can receive God’s life.  This is his highest calling and the purpose of his existence.  He is unique.  He is called to be God’s child and to enjoy God’s life.  Yet, this life is beyond his powers.  Man has a calling that he can never fulfill by his own powers – to become a child of God and live a divine life.  Man becomes God’s child by a gift coming from Jesus.

This gift was purchased at the great cost of Jesus’ death but man does not accept the gift.  Man has no interest in God’s life.  So, man is destined, by his own free choice, to die eternally, refusing the gift which he could so easily receive.

O reader, do not cause me sorrow.  Believe in my Son, Jesus, and receive life in his name.  I will help you.

“Mary, Help Me”

Mary

So many of my children are destroyed because they do not know all the places where they can be attacked nor do they understand all the helps that come from heaven.  This is my teaching.

Each person is very vulnerable in many ways.  They need an environment which provides for their physical needs.  They need emotional help from others.  They need to be taught values and morals.  They need a culture which supports those values.  All of these can be attacked and even destroyed.  Then, the person becomes vulnerable to the Evil One.

So Vulnerable!

They also are vulnerable to their own thoughts and feelings which lead astray.  They are vulnerable to false friendships that lead into darkness.  They are vulnerable to past memories and guilt that lies buried in their memories.  They are vulnerable to passing attractions, to addictions, to suggestions and to allurements that abound everywhere.

O reader, how vulnerable you are!  You think that you stand strong, but neither the legs you stand on nor the ground you stand upon is strong.

An Accident Victim

So, I must speak of heavenly helps.  Yes, heaven wants to help you.  That is my constant message.  The help begins as soon as you realize that you need help and call out to me.  An accident victim says to the rescuer, “Help me”.  Then, they point out their need.  The rescuer acts and also tells the victim what they must do to cooperate.

It is as easy as that.  Say, “Mary help me”.  Then, describe in a few words what is your dilemma.  After that, be still.  First, you will feel my love and the power of my presence.  Then, you will hear my words, telling you what little steps you can take, to be lifted out of the problem.

Use this method every day.  I love to hear you say, “Mary, help me”.

“Heaven’s Help”

Mary

Not everyone understands the world of heaven, so I must explain. Heaven is filled with created beings called angels and saints. Like yourselves, they enjoyed free will and freely chose to be in heaven. Now they see all the people on earth and they want you to make the same decision. They are always praying for you, especially those who knew you or even brought you into existence. Their relationship and friendship continue in heaven.

God’s Helpers

They help you in so many ways. They know your weaknesses and they ask God for his protection. They always pray that you find God’s will and do it. They never want you to sin. They always want you to repent. They have their greatest impact upon you when you pray to them, especially if you were close to them on earth.

I say all this to open up a treasury, the great riches of heaven. Anyone is free to take these riches. I would like to cite a very special example.

Devotion to A Holy Person

Think of someone who was both close to you in life and also close to God. These could even be more than one (like a set of parents). Think about this person every day. Ask them, to help you on your way to heaven. You will be surprised what happens within you. Sins will drop away. Devotion will emerge from within your heart. Even external blessings will fall in your lap. Continue to ask their help all the days of your life and, when you die, you will join them in heaven. That is all that the saints hope and pray for.

“Read the Catechism of the Catholic Church”

Mary

As I begin to put my people in places of authority, a new era of justice will begin. This will replace the present confusion. Too many things are allowed to take place in the name of freedom of expression and freedom of thought. Truth exists. The purpose of freedom of thought is to arrive at truth. On truth, a solid foundation can be built, and only there.

Otherwise, man makes up his own truths, creating them from his own heart, according to his own desires. These, so-called truths, are bent and shaped according to the whims of the human heart. These are personal desires, not objective truths. The human heart becomes its own guide and, foolishly, leads itself astray.

So many forces of confusion fill the air. People do not know the direction of truth. They wander like sheep without a shepherd. So, I must guide them by my words.

Clarity

First, listen to the Church. She speaks of right and wrong in very clear words. For many people, the words are too clear and they do not want to hear. Do not join their numbers because they are rejecting the light established by my Son.

Read the Catechism of the Catholic Church. There you will find the clear and simple teaching. No one can claim that these words are not available. Go to the internet. Download them, if you wish. They will enlighten your eyes to the truths and these will be written in your heart.

“Mary’s Road”

Mary

Do not turn back from the road of trust and full confidence in me. No other path to life exists and great are the forces that would lead you off this road.

First, there is the forbidden fruit of the world. To pick this, you must leave my road because nothing forbidden can be found on it. Second, there are your personal sins. When you walk this road your sins become evident to you. This clarity is given to you so you can seek forgiveness. Then, you will rejoice in the goodness of this road.

Third, there are the fears concerning the future. What will this road demand of you? Really, it is the easiest road, devoid of problems caused by your selfishness. And, I am there to help you.

No Compromise

I cannot compromise this road. It is the narrow road that Jesus spoke about and invited his disciples to walk. I cannot change his road to accommodate your sins but I can remove your sins so you can walk this road.

This is where people turn back because they want their sins. They cling to their sins even though they cause so many problems.

To Sinners

I do not speak now to the saints and to the devout. I speak to those who are mired in sin, to those who do not see themselves as devout or practicing their religion. I speak to all who have abandoned the faith of your childhood. I even speak to those deeply mired in the most serious of sins. Yes, I speak to all of you.

You can walk my road. I want you on my road. Mine will be the joy of a mother who sees her child return home.

You might not yet feel at home in a Church but you can feel at home in my heart. I want you there. That is where we will begin!

“Pitfalls and Darkness”

Mary

How many and how great are the pitfalls that can entrap anyone, holding them captive even for a lifetime. Yet, man wants to walk around blindfolded, not desiring the divine light which could easily fill his soul and help him to avoid these pitfalls. O reader, do you want God’s light? Just ask me. I am the Woman Clothed With the Sun and I share God’s light with everyone who seeks it.

The Commandments

However, man deliberately closes his eyes. He has no interest in God’s light. He sets aside the bible and the clear teachings of the Church. He allows his heart to be filled with the world’s darkness. He falls into some pit. This is inevitable. In modern life, pitfalls dot the landscape and the person must navigate them, watching closely not to be entrapped. This protecting light comes from God’s commandments.

Even if a person does not see what lies ahead, if they always obey God’s commands, they will not even approach these pitfalls. Their obedience safeguards them from numerous trials. Compare this with the person who compromises, who knows God’s law but is not firmly committed to keeping the law. Yes, this is what is needed, a firm commitment. So, I say, “Never compromise. Do not even take the first step down the road of darkness. You endanger everything – your eternal place in heaven and your years here on earth. So many have fallen in an unsuspecting moment.”

Sources of Light

Here is my plan. First, search out the sources of light. Read God’s word. Find people who love God and be with them. In this way, you will live in a culture of light and will quickly spot the darkness. Second, you must be aware of the sources of darkness in your life and get them out of your life. Get rid of them as completely as possible. Do not count the cost. No sacrifice is too high a price.

O child of God, in the world you will only find pitfalls and darkness. To find light, you must turn to me. That is why I speak.

“Finding the Road of Life”

Mary

You do not know the road that leads to life. It is hidden from your sight. This is not as it was meant to be. Mankind was supposed to see this road so all could walk it easily.

But human history has been darkened by sin and the human heart has been blinded. Man cannot find the only important road leading to eternal life. It is covered over and hidden, kept out of sight by Satan who places other roads before your eyes saying, “Walk this road or that road”, so you forget about the road of life.

He says, “This road will give you power. This road will gain you pleasure. This road will gain you all that you desire”. The road you choose does not matter to him, as long as you show no interest in the road to eternal life.

Mary’s Road

So, I come and say to you, “All these other roads do not fulfill your purpose on earth. You cannot stumble upon the road to eternal life. You do not suddenly find yourself walking on it. It does not appear out of the blue”. Yet, it can easily be found and walked. This begins with your inner desires. Oh, your inner desires! They are so scattered. They often make no sense. Even worse, they are sometimes sinful. This only increases the darkness.

Right now, I ask your permission to sweep away these desires. Yes, I need your permission to act. “Mary, sweep away my desires that lead me into darkness”. Say that often and I will sweep them away. You will find yourself in the pasture of peace. Stay there. I will come quickly for you and show you your road to eternal life.

“Paths Freed From Turmoil”

Mary

I lead you along a very simple path which I want all the world to learn. My path demands a leaving behind, a detachment from unneeded possessions. Even more, a leaving behind of selfish desires. Even more, a leaving behind of your own thoughts and plans.

When I say to you, “Follow me”, you can come only if you give up your path and your decisions. You must see me as the Woman Clothed With the Sun, who sees all that is ahead and who knows the safe paths.

Mary’s Path

It is not enough to have devotion to me. You must follow me. Walk with me. Choose my paths. Some are very obedient. They have no interest in any other path. These I protect all the time, with a marvelous and miraculous protection. Let me teach you this truth. My paths are as free from suffering as is possible in this life. There are two types of suffering. The normal hardships that accompany living in this place of exile and satanic hardships which are useless. He multiplies fears, anxieties, envy and hatred. He makes fires burn within you, that need never be lit. He leads you into his situations. These are traps which he sets through people whom he dominates.

My paths are free of all of this. Satan does not know my paths. Even if he did, he would not enter because they are all in my heart. So, I say, “Come follow me. I will show you my paths which you can easily walk.

“The Name “Mary””

Mary

I look and I search. If any just call upon my name, “Mary”, I can act. Yes, all they need to do is to use my name, “Mary”. Many have forgotten my name. Many have never been taught the power that lies in my name. “Mary”, that is all they need to say. Say it quietly, and I will hear. Say it often, and your heart will be turning to me, like a lost person sending out distress signals. Just say my name, “Mary”. That is enough, I will rescue you.

“The First Step Into Light”

Mary

The Way of Light is filled with blessings.  However, the person must leave go of darkness so their hands are free to receive.  This is the first, and the most difficult step, because the person sees only what they are giving up and does not yet experience the gift.  Let my words teach you.

I will not delay.  As soon as you let go of sin, I will come with light.  As soon as you turn your back on the darkness, the light will envelop you.  The purging will not be all at once, but in gradual steps that you can easily walk.  The first step is to overcome your fears, “What will life be like without my sinful attachments?”

Let us begin with those sinful attachments.  What in your life is obviously from darkness?  What do you do that, in the goodness of your heart, you do not want to do?  What steps do you take that you always regret?  What leads you into sin and darkness?  As you hear these questions, what comes immediately to your mind?  That is where your path to light begins.

Now, do not say, “I will wait until tomorrow” or “Some other time” or “I am not ready just yet”.  The same grace might not be yours tomorrow.  If you are not ready now, then how will you be ready if you delay?

This path to light has many steps that lead to the greatest freedom.  You cannot take the others, until you take the first.  Just resolve within yourself. I need only your permission to act.  Just pray, “I will throw away the darkness and walk as a child of the light”.  It is done.  Your will is resolved and your feet have chosen a different path.  Now, I can explain all the blessings.

February 15, 2015

“The First Three Steps

Mary

I must teach this way of light quickly because the darkness can already be seen.  This path has only little steps, but it has great gifts.  These I pour out on all who walk.  This is the first truth.  You do the little things and I do the great things.  At every step, huge blessings await.  This is why I must teach.

People think that they must do great things, especially as the darkness comes.  Really, they must do only little things, but these acts are so important.  They dispose and prepare the person for my acts.

The first little act is always faith, and faith comes from hearing.  I speak.  You listen.  What happens to the word?  You either accept it or reject it.  If you accept it, then it enters your heart and you set out on the path of light.  If you reject it, my word sits by the wayside, and you choose other roads, roads of darkness.

The second step is hope.  “I am on a journey.  Mary is with me.  I will not go astray.  She will protect me.  If I fall, she will pick me up.  If I fear, she will calm me.  Even if I sin, she will lead me to forgiveness.  It is different now.  I am not alone.  The Virgin is with me and she is my mother”.  Such are the thoughts of hope, always casting out the darkness of doubts.

The third step is a choice, a choice of love, when your will embraces me.  How many times and with such great tenderness, I have embraced you.  But that is not enough.  You must embrace me.  Do this now.  This great act of love seals everything.  Once you embrace me, I will never let you go.  I will always show up.  I will intervene.  When you embrace me, you give me permission to act as your mother.

You can see that this path is very easy but you would never have found it unless I revealed it to you.

February 16, 2015

“The Flame and the Candle”

Mary

The path of light is my gift to those who accept me.  Many set me aside, as if I were not important in the Father’s plan.  Others see no need to call upon my help.  If you are one of these, it is specifically for you that I speak today.  Without me, you can certainly walk a road to the Father through Jesus, but that road is hard to find and difficult to walk.

The heavenly Father foresaw this present time of darkness brought about by the cleverness of Satan’s plan.  For this moment of history, God reserved a new and special light, a candle burning brightly which each person can hold.  Is that not what you yourselves do?  When the lights go out, you use candles, because there is no central light.  So each person carries their own lit candle and all feel safe.

Picture me as the Heavenly Father’s candle and Jesus as the flame.  Can you have the flame without the candle?  I am not the flame.  Jesus is the flame, but I am the candle, easily available to all who accept me.  The candle comes first, then the flame.  Who would try to take the flame into their own hands?  That is foolishness. Only harm would result.

How long will the candle burn?  How bright will be its flame?  I am the Father’s candle and I will burn as long and as brightly as each one needs.  I am Immaculate.  The light will be pure, piercing and totally able to lead you.   When the night grows darker, I will burn more brightly.  When the wind comes, I, myself, will protect the flame.  Even if the flame goes out, I will ask the heavenly Father and He will light your candle again.

The time is now because you must get your candle before the darkness comes.

February 17, 2015

“Let There Be Light

Mary

Those who seek the light need only allow themselves to be drawn and led by it.  The Father has created you for light.  He, Himself, is eternal light, shining from all ages.  His first words were, “Let there be light”.  He has formed in His only Son, Jesus, the new kingdom of light, the only hope for a world plunged into darkness.

I preach this kingdom and open its doors right now.  Where are these doors?  Just follow my voice.  My words will lead you.  Right now, you cannot see, so let your ears be open to my words.  They will bring you to the doors of sight.  Let me begin.

You are absorbed by a darkness that you do not even perceive.  The daily cares, the anxieties, and the attempts to gain security absorb the heart.  Every hour is filled, so little time, sometimes none, given to the light.

Now, you hear my voice saying, “Come over here.  Stay a moment.  Do not rush headlong”.  What do I ask of you?  Just a moment, a time to invoke me, to call on me with faith.  I ask some quiet moments, some stillness, an absorption into the light of prayer which has greater power to absorb you than the darkness.  Only I can bring you this light, Jesus, my Son.   The Father has placed Jesus in my heart, where all are called to receive.  You only escape darkness by coming into light and you cast out darkness only by grasping the light.   All other efforts will completely fail.

Now, I speak the most precious words of all.  In the beginning, all was darkness until God said “Let there be light”.   As the new darkness comes, the Father has given me the privilege, the task, the call, even the command, to use His words, “Let there be light”.   Through these locutions, I am saying those words day after day, in numerous images and teachings.  Now, I say it to you, “Let there be light”.  I will always say those words.  They are my daily, constant blessing.  “Let there be light”.

February 18, 2015

“A Path Revealed to the Little Ones”

Mary

The path of light is a road filled with blessings which are hidden from the proud but revealed quickly to the little ones who want to walk my ways.

First, they see that I am with them in every danger, always protecting them from the harm which is caused by others or by their own foolish decisions.

Second, they experience my constant encouragement.  They know that when the great problems come upon them, that I will be there to help carry them.  Third, they often experience my presence, as warmth or a peace comes over them.  This quiets their fears and allows them to choose the right road.

Thirdly, they know that I will be with them until the end.  I will never abandon them until that moment when I embrace them forever and ever.  This is the path of light which is open to all the little ones.  How do your become “a little one”?  This is the great secret.  A person must decide to be a “little one” (and everyone in the world can make that decision).

First, they must see that their own strength and their own intellect are unable to overcome all their difficulties.

Second, they must be filled with hope, that I hear their every cry.

Third, they must walk in my ways, according to my truths.  This is the great illumination that takes place in the heart, when the person allows me to place my new light within them.

Now, they are my little one, able to walk my path of light.

February 19, 2015

“Light For the Hour of Darkness

Mary

The path of light is open to all, but it is found most easily by those who walk with others, their hearts joined as one in the most important journey of all.  How many gather for other purposes, joined by the hopes of profits or delights.  They constantly move along those roads which the world points out to them.  How few join their hearts to walk the path of light.  This is the great secret that I am trying to reveal to the whole world.

In ordinary times, people do not need my special path of light.  The times are normal.  The problems can be overcome and the faith sustained.  However, these are not the usual times.  This is the hour, as Jesus called it.

In the hour of His passion, He told the apostles to stay awake, to pray that they might overcome the trial.  They failed and scattered, not grasping the darkness that they would face.

People might ask, “Why do I need this path of light?”  Because the darkness and the trial of the “hour” is at hand.  You must seek out others whose hearts are also seeking the path of light.  Join together and I will join with you.  The more you are joined, the greater will be the light.  When the darkness comes, just remain as one and you will have your light, your little candles burning brightly able to enkindle each other if your flame goes out.

February 20, 2015

“External Signs That Invite All”

Mary

I come to my final teaching. I invite all, from every faith and every nation to walk my path of light. I do not limit this path to Catholics or even to the baptized Christians. The time is so urgent and the darkness is so great, that I must open my path of light to everyone. I say this by way of preparation.

At Fatima, thousands gathered. Some believed and some were skeptical. Yet, all saw the dance of the sun. All experienced its power to dry their clothes and to dry up the ground. All could photograph the phenomena and give excellent reports to the press. I did not limit the grace of Fatima to just the fervent believers. I reached out that day to all of Portugal and to all the world. So, it will be in the future. I have spoken in these locutions about the path of light that is available right now and should be walked immediately. This path involves inner steps and personal decisions. It asks people to join with others in faith. In that way, their candles will not go out. To whomever takes these inner steps, I promise that they will find their path to light.

But, now, I am speaking of external signs, invitations to all people of all faiths to walk my path of light. If they just know about me and about the path of light which I offer, they will be able to respond adequately to the signs.

Believers must help unbelievers. Prepare now to be missionaries of light. I am speaking to you. Who else? Have you not faithfully read these locutions? Do you not love my words? You must learn to be missionaries of the light.

The external signs, which are my invitation to the whole world, will open many hearts but you must be there with your nets, mended and readied, to receive the great catch of fish.
