Prophet John Leary

Jesus said: “My people, today your country has an opportunity to vote in the pro-life candidates to protect your rights in a democratic republic. It is your civic duty to get out and vote for the persons of your choice. America stands at a crossroads between socialism and your Constitutional way of life. Your abortions are the worst sins of your country, and that is why you need to vote for pro-life candidates to help stop the abortions that are causing your punishments in your natural disasters. Continue to pray for a fair election with no manipulation of votes, and no votes from people who should not be voting. Pray for My angels to guard your votes against the evil ones who are trying to falsify your election.”

Jesus said: “My people, you are living in an armed camp where many nations could use enough nuclear missiles to destroy most of your land all over the earth, and cause a nuclear winter. Most of your weapons are for a deterrent, and you hope they never have to be used. You even have anti-missiles to try and take down offensive missiles. When a major war breaks out, it is a threat to your human survival if you resort to using these nuclear missiles. This is why you need to pray for peace every day so such a catastrophic war does not come about. Trust in Me to warn you of such a danger, so you have time to get to a refuge for protection from a nuclear or virus attack.”
Jesus said: “My people, I thank you for all of your prayers to elect pro-life candidates. This small house represents how there will be a close election for who will control the House of Representatives. If you pray in faith, you can have the House remain in the hands of the current party. This vision of the unfinished house, represents how it still remains to be decided. It is your people who will decide the direction of your country. Continue to pray your 24 Glory Be Novena to St. Therese for the pro-life candidates to win. Pray also for a fair election without any cheating at the polls. I will send My angels to protect your votes from any cheating.”

Jesus said: “My people, you have been praying your 24 Glory Be Novena to St. Therese for the pro-life people to win the elections. Now My Blessed Mother wants you to pray to her through her Guadalupe image for your people in your elections. You remember when President Bush was re-elected on December 12th with a Supreme Court decision. This image of My Blessed Mother also is connected with stopping abortions, which is what is at stake for your pro-life candidates. It is to your candidates’ credit to stand up and fight to save My babies from abortion. Bring this image to your prayer group to help win the coming elections.”
Jesus said: “My people, I am showing you a power surge that will cause areas of power outages much like you had some years ago when the Northeast grid went down. In the vision you were seeing sparks and transformers exploding as the power grid will go down. Such a massive power outage will take a long time to repair. The vision was not in the winter, but it will be difficult to have lights at night, and power to run your natural gas burners. Generators and solar systems will be working, but there will be gasoline and food shortages if the pumps are not able to pump gasoline. Such a long power outage could cause a famine. This is why I have encouraged My faithful to have 1 yr’s supply of food for each person in your household. You may also need a source of water. Such a power outage will be the means for a takeover of America, so be prepared for such a disaster. Trust in Me to send you to My refuges, if your lives are in danger.”

Jesus said: “My people, I performed My first miracle of converting six large jars of water into the best wine in Cana. I am always generous in My miracles, and I fulfilled My Blessed Mother’s request, for they had no more wine. My Blessed Mother leads you to Me with her rosaries that you pray every day. She also was a strength for My apostles after I rose into heaven. The Holy Spirit emboldened My apostles to have no fear, as My apostles went out to spread My Good News. From the cross I gave My Blessed Mother over to the care of St. John the Evangelist. Give thanks for My Blessed Mother to lead you.”
Jesus said: “My people, your society has reached new lows in your morals. Few people are coming to Confession, and few people are living in a proper married state. Many couples live in fornication and adultery, instead of proper marriage of a man and a woman. Some continue to use birth control devices and abortion to control the live births. Your elections are coming in a few days, and America has a choice between voting for a socialist, communist government, or a Constitutional democratic republic. You have heard the lies and false accusations by the opposition party, but now your people can vote for those people who are speaking the truth. Your election will determine which way your government will be run. Pray for your country to correct its morals, or you will see more punishment in your natural disasters.”

(Funeral Mass for Peggy Spiegelman)
Jesus said: “My people, it is always hard to lose a mother, but she was a good woman and faithful to Me. Peggy needs prayers and Masses, and she will be praying for her family and friends. Pray for peace in the family, as life is too short to not love each other.”
Jesus said: “My people, I am showing you a massive corona discharge from the sun that could harm your communication satellites. Such an effect on the earth will cause a large aurora borealis at both poles. This will be like the strange light that was seen before World War II started. The Blessed Mother told the people then to pray the rosary and change their bad lifestyles. They did not listen to heaven’s warning, and a strange light appeared in the sky, followed by World War II breaking out. A while back the Blessed Mother also called the people of today to pray the rosary and change their lives, or a grave punishment would come upon the earth. This great light that will be seen in the sky, will be a precursor for World War III. Your prayers could minimize the deaths, but this war will happen in the Middle East similar to the descriptions of the Battle of Armageddon. Keep praying for peace and for less people being killed, but this will be a punishment for your abortions and your sexual sins.”

(All Saints’ Day)
Jesus said: “My people, today there is a great celebration in heaven among all the saints, which includes all the people who have made it to heaven. Many of you have favorite saints, and you call on their help with prayers of intercession. Everyone in heaven is looking down on all of you, as My faithful are ‘saints in progress’. Continue to follow Me, and keep on the right path, so you can come to heaven one day. You are tested on earth among all the demons, and most faithful need purification in purgatory. Those faithful, who live through the tribulation, will suffer their purgatory on earth at My refuges. Once I purify the earth of the evil people and the demons, I will renew the earth, and bring My faithful into My Era of Peace. There you will be perfected as saints, and on your death, you will be brought into heaven.”
Jesus said: “My people, I have warned you how the persecution of prophets and good priests will get worse, as the demons gain more power. Some of your persecution will even come from within the Church. If you see unusual and heretical things being said in a church, then leave that church for a more traditional church. Eventually, many churches will not be teaching properly, and you will need to come to the safety of My refuges.”
Jesus said: “My people, I have told you in previous messages how there will be a schism in My Church that will be divided between a schismatic church and My faithful remnant. If you see New Age teachings and Reiki healing being taught, then leave this church that is infested with demons. My faithful remnant will teach what the apostles taught, and if you see the churches teaching another Gospel, then you will need to come to My refuges.”
Jesus said: “My people, you are seeing the darkness of the demons spreading all over the world in some churches, schools, and in the media. Persecution will come to My faithful, so be prepared to come to My refuges when I give you the word. Once I tell you, call on Me and I will have your guardian angel lead you with a flame to the nearest refuge. Your angel will put a shield of invisibility over you for your protection. Angels will protect you at My refuges and they will multiply your food, water, and fuels. Trust in My power which is greater than all the demons. You will have daily Holy Communion given to you at every refuge.”
Jesus said: “My people, you read in today’s reading from Revelation how the faithful people will be marked with a cross on their foreheads. You will see these crosses during the tribulation. Only those people, who believe in Me, will receive their cross from My angels. At the Warning those people, who are converted to the faith, will also receive their cross on the forehead. Work to bring your families back to the faith so they can have a cross on their foreheads. Only people with crosses on their foreheads will be allowed to enter My refuges. Those people without a cross on the forehead, will not be allowed by My angels to enter My refuges.”
Jesus said: “My people, you are aware of those media who are supporting abortion, euthanasia, and homosexual lifestyles. I tell you these media will collapse under the weight of their own evil weight. I will punish those people who are teaching and promoting evil lifestyles. My faithful may be persecuted now by these evil ones, but soon I will bring My justice down against these evil ones, as they will be cast into the eternal flames of hell.”
Jesus said: “My people, you will encounter evil people in all of their evil lifestyles. They will criticize you for not following worldly ways, but disregard their taunts, and continue to follow the faithful ways of My saints. When you face evil attacks, call on My saints and angels to protect you and support you in your battle against evil. My power is greater, and I will come to your aid in any situation. In the end I will win the victory over all of the evil ones, so be patient for you will be with Me in the glory of heaven.”
Jesus said: “My people, there are some people who may doubt how I will provide enough food for all of My faithful at My refuges. You know in the Scriptures how I multiplied the fish and bread for 5,000 and 4,000 people. Nothing is impossible for Me. I only ask that you store some food, water, and fuels, so I can multiply what you have. I will provide you daily Holy Communion at My refuges, and you could survive even with My Eucharist alone. Fear not, because I know what you need to survive, and you will have it in abundance, even as they collected seven and twelve baskets of fragments from the original two fish and five barley loaves.”

Jesus said: “My people, in today’s Gospel I am telling My faithful to enter heaven through the narrow gate. I call everyone to be reconciled for your sins, and work on loving Me in all of your actions. Those people, who repent of their sins, and seek My forgiveness, will be recognized by My Father in heaven. But those sinners, who refuse to repent, and refuse to accept Me as their Savior, I will not witness to them before My Father in heaven. My faithful will be welcomed into heaven, because many are called, but few are chosen. The unfaithful sinners will shout out Lord, Lord, but I will tell them I do not know you, and they will be cast into the flames of hell. Now is the time to get your soul right with Me in frequent Confession. Establish a love relationship with Me by your prayers and good works, and you will become My worthy disciples. Go out to all the nations and share My Good News, so people can believe in Me, and be saved by your evangelization efforts.”
Jesus said: “My people, some people treat Halloween as a time to think of witches and demons, but you saw some cute little children asking for trick or treat candy. I have mentioned before not to use ugly, scary costumes for your children, and indeed the children you saw were dressed well. This is not a day for demons, but it should be a preparation for All Saints’ Day. You could use the lives of My saints as models to follow for your own lives. It is not easy to strive to be a saint with all the evil distractions of today’s possessions and desires for earthly things. It is better to desire heavenly things and perform good works, than to focus on pleasures and comforts of this world. So do not let the demons mislead you with their lies, but focus more on My love and the beauty of My creations.”

Jesus said: “My people, you are blessed to be visiting an old Abbey of St. Benedict that dates back to the 1860’s. The priest gave you some history of this Abbey. Every viable monastery is a blessing and a place of refuge. These monasteries may not all be preparing for the end times, but My angels will bring food and water for the people to survive. The angels will also provide bedding when needed. My people need safe havens for protection during the tribulation, and these monasteries will fulfill this role. Pray that the monks will have sufficient funds to survive this time. I will bless them, and put My angels of protection around them. My people can also pray for them and help support them where possible.”
Jesus said: “My son, you are seeing how I was persecuted by the religious leaders of My day in the Pharisees. They chastised Me for healing a woman with a back problem on the Sabbath. I called them hypocrites because they preached the Mosaic law, but they themselves did not obey My laws of loving Me and loving their neighbor. My son, you also have been rejected and even criticized for proclaiming My words and My laws. You have been rejected by some priests to talk in their parishes because they fear the truth, or being against some bishops. Do not be afraid, My son. I want you to continue giving your talks, but you may have to avoid speaking in the churches, who do not want to hear My words. Pray for your priests that they could be healed of any addictions. Pray for the souls of the priests who are constantly being attacked by the demons. I love My priest sons, who are offering Mass and providing the sacraments for My faithful.”
Sunday, October 28, 2018
Jesus said: “My people, you have heard the Gospel of how Bartimaeus, the blind man, called out to Me to be healed. He called out to Me as the Son of David. When you listen to the Gospel of My genealogy, you see the line of succession passing through King David. I healed Bartimaeus of his blindness, and he rejoiced that he could see Me, and he danced around. He had faith that I could heal him, and so his request was answered. I love all of My people, and I want all of My people to love Me from their hearts. I want you to take away this brick wall image, so you can see My loving Heart, and you can join My Heart in love with your own heart. Once you have established this daily love relationship with Me in prayer, I will protect you from any attacks and addictions of the devil. Once the scales of your spiritual blindness have been removed, you will see Me clearly, and you will want to be with Me always in your prayers, Mass, Adoration, Confession, and in your good works. Once My love envelops your heart, you will want to share My love with all of the people who desire to love Me. So take away this brick wall of your spiritual blindness, and rejoice in your love relationship with Me.”
Jesus said: “My people, you are so used to hearing breaking news on your TV or in your newspapers, but this news is temporary, and the truth could be different. It is My Good News of My Death and Resurrection that is forever, and forever true. If you have My Word of love in the Bible, then why are you not reading the Bible every day? You would rather read the bad news in your papers, than My Good News in the Scriptures. When you read the Bible, you should read it slowly in your prayer room, and meditate on it, as well as acting on it. Do not just leave your Bible on the table to collect dust, but you should read a few pages at least every day. My words are forever, but your words are thrown out and discarded the next day. Remember My words of love that should be imprinted on your hearts forever. I love all of you so much that I died to save your souls. Give praise and thanks for all the gifts and blessings I bestow on you.”
Saturday, October 27, 2018
Jesus said: “My people, soon I will bring the Warning experience that you have been patiently waiting for. Everyone will have their life review at the same time all over the world. Your soul body will come up out of your physical body, and you will be outside of time as you will come to My Light. You will know that I truly exist, and you will have a life review where you will be able to remember all of your unforgiven sins. You will see your individual mini-judgment of heaven, hell, or purgatory. You will have a taste of whatever judgment you will be given. You will be placed back into your body so you could decide to follow Me or not. You will be given six weeks of time to convert your lives, and an opportunity to try and bring your family back to the sacraments. Those people, who are converted, will receive their cross on their forehead, and they will be able to enter the refuges. This Warning is a part of My Divine Mercy for all sinners to change their lives and be saved. Give thanks and praise to Me for all the gifts I give to all of My faithful.”
Friday, October 26, 2018
Jesus said: “My people, there are many people who do not believe in the existence of the devil, but there truly are many demons on the earth tempting people with sin and addictions. All addictions have a demon attached to it, and that is why it takes deliverance prayers, exorcisms, or miracles to break any addictions. During the coming tribulation, if the demons had physical bodies, they would blot out the sun. I am more powerful than all of the demons, so have no fear of them, and call on Me and My angels to protect you from their attacks. It is only when souls give their assent that they are opening portals for the devil to enter and control them. So bring souls to Confession so I can heal them and close any portals to the devil. I love all sinners, and I want to save every soul. It is by the soul’s free will choice to choose to follow Me that will help save that soul. Those souls who reject My love, are risking hell, if they do not change before they die. Pray for your soul, the souls of all sinners, and for the souls in purgatory.”
Thursday, October 25, 2018
Jesus said: “My people, you are surely living in the end days. As in the vision, the curtain is opening on the last act of the evil ones. During the tribulation, it may seem that evil is winning, just as I was being crucified seemed to look like evil was winning as well. But fear not because this evil time will be shortened for the sake of My elect. At the Warning I will give every sinner a chance to repent and change their lives. You will have a life review and a mini-judgment to wake you up to how you have offended Me with your sins. Some people will be converted, but there could be divisions in families where some will believe, and others may not be converted. Work to have your family members believe so they can have a cross on their foreheads. Only those people with such crosses will be allowed to enter My refuges. You will see chaos and evil so bad after six weeks from the Warning, that it will be necessary to come to My refuges. The angel of your refuge will protect you and multiply your food, water, fuels, and even your buildings. After this trial, you will have your reward in My Era of Peace, and later in heaven.”
Jesus said: “My people, I want you to pray for Pope Francis and for all the priests who are being accused of any improper activity with children. You are seeing several cases being brought forward for civil trials in various states. It is sad that some priests, who have committed crimes, are giving a bad name to all the good priests. So pray for all of your priests so they could continue in their proper ministry to provide you Mass and the sacraments.”
Jesus said: “My people, you have seen thousands of people intent on coming into America despite your border laws. This is not the proper way to enter any country without an invitation, and they should be waiting their turn for entry. There are even reports that terrorists from other countries are joining this invasion of your laws. America is within its rights to refuse entry for this caravan. Pray that no violence will occur.”
Jesus said: “My people, these actions appear to be focused on disturbing the upcoming elections by their timing of a few weeks before your elections. There could be some devious people who are trying to steal the current headlines for political purposes. Pray that the perpetrators can be brought to trial for such crimes.”
Jesus said: “My people, many of your markets are manipulated for gains, or even for political reasons. Some traders appear concerned about interest rates and the latest tariffs. Earnings have driven some moves, but there appears to be some unusual reasons for the latest down trend. Pray for your country’s economy which is doing better than some people are not admitting.”
Jesus said: “My people, I have warned you before to beware of illegal use of your voting machines to change votes. There also are some people who are not citizens or dead people’s names being used to vote that is illegal. A closer inspection should be made to verify if any people are voting twice or more. It is such manipulation of your voting process that is being used to put some people into office in close elections. Pray that you will have a fair election without such cheating.”
Jesus said: “My son, call on My angels of protection to guard you from any harm from the weather at your talks. Have your people pray for your safety, as you reach out to share My messages with the people at your venues. It is important to help save souls, and I will help protect you and keep you in good health. The evil ones will try to throw stumbling blocks in front of you, but go forward in faith because My power is stronger than any evil demons. I will go before you to protect your travel.”
Jesus said: “My people, you are seeing how important the upcoming elections are for your country’s survival. The opposition party continues to support abortion, and some are promoting a socialism takeover. Your country will decide whether you will choose a democratic republic or a socialist government. Getting out to vote is important to preserve your country’s freedoms. Remember to pray the 24 Glory Be Novena to St. Therese for your pro-life candidates to win, and keep praying this prayer every day up to election day.”
Wednesday, October 24, 2018
Jesus said: “My people, I am showing you how all of heaven is looking down on all of your actions, so you need to be on your good behavior in all that you do for Me in My Name. I want you to take to heart the words of the Gospel where the more that is given to you, even more will be expected of you. This means that it is the duty of My faithful to always preach how I was crucified, the glory of My Resurrection, and how I will come again in victory over the evil ones. You recite this in the Mass, but you need to live it, as you need to be prepared for My coming every day. You also need to keep your soul ready and pure by frequent Confession. Just as in My parable, you always must be waiting for the bridegroom to come, by having your lamps ready with extra oil, as the five wise virgins. I will bring My Warning first to give all sinners an opportunity to repent and be saved. Then during the tribulation My refuge builders will have My refuges ready to receive My faithful, and they will distribute the food that I will multiply at the proper time. Be grateful that My faithful, who have crosses on their foreheads, will be protected from the evil ones by My angel of the refuge. Do not be concerned about when or how this will happen, but trust that I will be separating the lambs from the goats, and My faithful will then be brought into My Era of Peace, and later into heaven.”
Jesus said: “My people, you have seen one of your worst hurricane seasons with Florence and Michael in the Atlantic Ocean, and many storms and typhoons in the Pacific Ocean. Each year your storms have taken a toll of damage on your buildings and your economy. Even your stock market is having its own problems. There is an increase in global warming that can enhance these storms, but it is happening on account of your decreasing magnetism of your magnetosphere, and from the HAARP machine. These storms are also a punishment on America for your many abortions as portrayed in the Gosnell movie. Your laws and decisions in your courts still allow legal abortions which are against My laws. You know deep down in your soul that abortion is murdering My babies, even if you do not want to admit it. This callous killing of babies I told you needs to stop, or I will stop it with even more serious disasters or wars. Listen to My words that America needs to stop killing a million of My babies every year. Keep praying to stop abortion and pray for pro-life candidates to win and change your evil laws. Keep praying your 24 Glory Bes to St. Therese so the mid-term elections can save your country from further destruction.”
Tuesday, October 30, 2018
Jesus said: “My people, today’s first reading speaks of how everyone should be under My authority. A husband and wife are under a bond of love to love each other in marriage in the Church, but they also answer to My love. The single person also is under authority to Me and My Church. The priest is under authority to the bishop, the Pope, but also to Me in his ministry. My prophets are under authority to their spiritual directors and Me. By living under authority, you are living in obedience to Me and to those who you are under. Always recognize that you live in obedience to a higher authority than yourself. Do not think you can rule over just yourself or others. You need to live every day in humble obedience to Me and My laws. Every person is united in My love, as I love all of you, and by your free will, you could love Me as well. Give praise and thanks to Me for living according to My control of all creation.”
Jesus said: “My people, some people enjoy accumulating money for themselves so they can control people, buy the latest gadgets and cars, and some use money to buy drugs. Too much money can be a source of sin. Money can also be a source of killing people for inheritances. You need some money to buy your food, and money for a car or a house. Do not treat money as a god, and do not desire money for its own sake. Instead, you should be willing to give 10% of your money to charity in helping your neighbor. By sharing your money, you are storing up treasure in heaven. So be satisfied with your lot, without seeking to be rich. I told you how hard it is for the rich man to gain heaven, because he does not want to part with his wealth. You are better to trust in Me to give you what you need, and you will have the necessities because I love you. You are here to know, love, and serve Me, and not to accumulate as much wealth as you can. Money is cold and it can be lost or stolen, so do not put your trust in money. Instead, put your trust in Me and that will be enough for you.”

How To Answer a Protestant about Praying to Mary and the Saints
By a soul
These days, I do not post much in Facebook, however, yesterday, I posted in a prayer group a link to the request for prayers to the Blessed Mother for the success of the U.S. elections. And someone responded negatively to my prayer request. So, I sent him a private message through Facebook with my reply.
Now, often, I see Protestants and Catholics getting into heated debates in Facebook, quoting Sacred Scripture and making emotional appeals to various differences between Protestant Christianity and Catholicism. And typically, I see a lot of lack of civility between parties, etc.
I do not like to debate. I actually was on the debate team in high school, college, and law school. So, I know how to debate, but these days, I do not like to debate, because I am a much different person since I returned to the Catholic faith during my last year of graduate school. I am actually much more quiet and reflective these days. And I am a lot simpler, just simply enjoying myself in prayer and reflecting on heavenly messages. I do not like to engage in intense conversations, etc., and I like to keep to myself.
However, I want to share my response to this person that I privately wrote, because I believe that it will be very instructive to many people who are challenged on the beliefs of praying to the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Saints in Heaven. I feel that it is a good example of how to effectively respond to people challenging our faith in forums such as Facebook. So, here is my response.
MY RESPONSE BY PRIVATE MESSAGE (By a soul):
You posted a response to my link in the [Facebook] group about the Blessed Mother needing prayers for the U.S. elections yesterday.
Do you truly not know who the Blessed Mother is, or are you asking me this question in sarcasm? Sarcasm is not a Christ-like behavior and is beneath the dignity of a Christian.
Are you a Protestant or Catholic?
God is not the god of the dead, but of the living. Those who die in Christ are alive. I invite you to visit the Catacombs in Rome and witness what the early Christians truly believed in during the first 300 years of the Christian Church. All the tombs of the early Christians have markings of prayers for the dead and to the Martyrs in Heaven and the Blessed Mother. This is miles and miles of early Christian graves having prayers to the Saints and the Blessed Virgin Mary. The early Christians believed in Purgatory and that the dead needed prayers to go to Heaven.
Also, you seem to like to quote Bible verses. Do you even know how you received the Bible that you believe in your hands? If it were not for the Catholic Church, you would not even have a Bible to quote.
St. Ignatius was a disciple of St. John the Apostle. He was the Bishop of Antioch and died a holy martyr in 109 AD at the hands of the Romans. He wrote many writings on the Christian faith and in his writings, he called the early Church the “Catholic Church.”
If you doubt that the authentic faith is the Catholic Church, then you are basically saying that the early Christian Church was corrupted in the first generation of Christians. When I say that St. Ignatius was a disciple of St. John, that means that he was directly taught by St. John the Apostle who was taught by Our Lord, Jesus Christ, Himself.
I send this message to you privately to save you from public embarrassment in your ignorance of the history of Christianity. And if you doubt my words, then I challenge you to visit the Catacombs in Rome and tell me what the early Church believed— Christianity was built on the back of Martyrs.
Truly, to know the history of Christianity and to read the writings of the early Saints—the Church Fathers—is to cease being a Protestant.
God bless you in your faith journey.

MESSAGE FROM OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
TO HIS BELOVED DAUGHTER LUZ DE MARIA
JUNE 12, 2018
My Beloved People:
I SEEK YOU AS THE DEER SEEKS FRESH WATER. (Cf. Ps 41 (42), 1-2)
My Heart beats for each one of you, My Body and My Blood are present at every Consecration, out of love for My children.
My beloved People, out of love I send you My Angelic Legions to defend you against evil; you know full well that I do not prevent you from using your free will, therefore those who wish to come near Me have all the necessary assistance to do so. MY MOTHER, WHO LOVES YOU INFINITELY, DOES NOT HOLD BACK, SHE WANTS ALL MY CHILDREN TO BE SAVED. SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL WITH HIS ARCHANGELS AND ALL THE HEAVENLY LEGIONS ARE WAITING FOR A REQUEST FROM YOU IN ORDER TO INTERCEDE, TO ACT IN ASSISTING MY CHILDREN.
My People, the struggle of this instant involves the spiritual, as the goal of the devil is that mankind rebels and acts as it is acting at this instant: against My Will.
The determination of great and powerful entities has been directed, from times past, to diverting the correct action and work of man, causing him to rebel against Me. THEIR MOTTO IS TO REDUCE THE WORLD POPULATION AND ABORT INNOCENCE; IN THIS WAY SATAN IS ENABLED TO ACT RAPIDLY.
THIS CALL IS NOT APOCALYPTIC! WHAT IS HAPPENING IS TO BE FOUND REVEALED IN HOLY SCRIPTURE (cf. Lk 17, 20-36, Mt 24, 23-35, Lk 21, 25-28), but man does not know Me in depth and those who have studied Me do not acknowledge that I continue speaking to My People, even though I had already announced this to My prophets and to My disciples in ancient times (cf. Mt 28,20b; 1 Pet 1,19).
They want Me to be a God of the past so that in the present Humanity, appealing to My Mercy, would work and act as children of satan and not as My children must work and act. My Mercy is present and it is infinite, but the human creature must repent of its evil works, of its wrongdoing in order to come to My Mercy. MY MERCY IS FOR EVERYONE, EVEN IN THE LAST INSTANT I HOLD IT OUT BEFORE MY CHILDREN, WAITING FOR REPENTANCE, WAITING FOR YOU TO CALL ME, WAITING FOR A WORD, A FEELING, A THOUGHT.
YOU HAVE COME TO DENY THE EXISTENCE OF HELL: THIS, CHILDREN, MUST MAKE YOU MEDITATE…
WHO IS TO BE FOUND BEHIND EVERYTHING THAT FACILITATES MAN’S ACTION AGAINST THE DIVINE LAW?
Men suffer thirst and hunger for My Word. My sons, My priests, My servants, My faithful ones must bring their brothers and sisters closer to Me and it is not because of speaking to them of hell that My children will walk away, but all My People must have clarity so that they choose which path to take.
I do not want My children to be lost, My People have risen up and will rise up by My Hand, by the Hand of My Mother and by the hand of My Heavenly Legions.
MY MOTHER WILL CRUSH THE HEAD OF SATAN, BUT MY PEOPLE MUST KNOW THAT GOOD EXISTS AND EVIL EXISTS, THAT HEAVEN IS THE PROMISE FOR MY FAITHFUL CHILDREN AND HELL IS READY TO BURN THE TARES.
Pray, My children, pray for Spain, so that it returns to Me.
Pray My children, pray for Ecuador, it will be forcefully shaken and its volcanoes awaken.
Pray My children, pray for the Middle East, terrorism does not delay.
My People, how you wander without finding true happiness! How many human creatures rebel against everything, without seeing that they rebel against themselves, against their own nature, against being human creatures!
MY PEOPLE, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO YOURSELVES? I SEE YOU INDIFFERENT FACING SO MUCH EVIL…
COME BACK TO ME, BE FAITHFUL, BE MY CHILDREN IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH.
I bless you, do not give up to being faithful. I love you.

COMMENTARY BY THE INSTRUMENT
Brothers and Sisters:
In this Call, our Lord shows us that He is Mercy in His essence, but this Mercy must be solicited and implored because if it not implored it will not come as a gift.
Our Lord again warns us so that we are not easy prey for evil, in order that we do not sleep while the devil watches man fall.
Brothers and sisters, we are experiencing persecution, we do not have to wait; we see how actions against what represents God are being generated with greater freedom and frequency, without being censured for the greater part.
We must think about what we are: children of God, not “mute dogs”. Isaiah 56, 10b. Amen.
GOD SPEAKS WILL YOU LISTEN
January 8, 2012
To the nations of the world:
You are being given 2 visions of the future of the earth. The kingdom of the Divine Will of my Father, or the kingdom of Satan, allowed by my Father, as a chastisement for rejecting my mercy. The holy scripture, describes these kingdoms to you.
Listen to the words of the prophet Isaias, describing the first vision:
For behold I create new heavens, and a new earth; and the former things shall not be in remembrance, and they shall not come upon the heart… And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people, and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying. There shall no more be an infant of days there, nor an old man that shall not fill up his days: for the child shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner being a hundred years old shall be accursed. And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree, so shall be the days of my people, and the works of their hands shall be of a long continuance. My elect shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth in trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord, and their posterity with them. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will hear; as they are yet speaking, I will hear. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together; the lion and the ox shall eat straw; and the dust shall be the serpent’s food: they shall not hurt nor kill in all my holy mountain, saith the Lord. (Isaias 65:17-25)
This is a description of the era of peace or the seventh day of creation promised by my Eternal Father to mankind. This is not the era of peace or new age promised by the false religions of the new age developed in the pits of hell. This era of peace brings a partial fulfillment to the prayer which I taught my disciples:
Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven, give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. (Matthew 6:9-13)
The final fulfillment of this prayer will take place at the end of human history. This is when I will return in the flesh for the last judgment. Death, hell, and all those who reject my mercy will be cast into the pool of fire for eternity. The righteous, or those who repented and accepted my mercy, will live with the Holy Trinity for eternity, in the eternal eighth day of creation. This is my desire for all of mankind. The reason I was born was to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8) and redeem mankind from sin and separation from the Divine Will. In the beginning, the Divine Will created man in the image of God.
And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27).
But the first humans, Adam and Eve believed the lies of Satan and rejected the Divine Will. Henceforth, sin and death came into your world. Human history is the result of mankind rejecting the Divine Will of the Holy Trinity. Wars, famine, natural disasters, and disease are a result of the rejection of the Divine Will.
But the Divine Will loves humanity so much, I, the second person of the Divine Will took on human flesh and became man.
For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in him may not perish, but may have life everlasting. (John 3:16)
I, Jesus Christ, was born of the Virgin Mary in humble conditions for your salvation. I lived, taught, healed, and walked amongst humanity for 33 years. Then, I was crucified, died, buried, and rose from the dead for your salvation. I cried out to my Father on the cross:
Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. (Luke 23:34)
I prayed this prayer for each human person who would ever be born. This includes each of you reading this message. I paid the penalty completely for your sin and rebellion against the Divine Will. All I ask of you is to: Repent of you sins and accept my mercy and forgiveness. Then read what the scripture tells you:
If then any be in Christ a new creation, the old things are passed away, behold all things are made new. (2 Corinthians 5:17). And putting on the new, him who is renewed unto knowledge, according to the image of him that created him. (Colossians 3:10)
The gift of the Divine Will is given through repentance and forgiveness through my Divine Mercy. Then, you are living as the Divine Will created you to live. I instituted my church, The Holy Catholic church as my messenger to the world. For I am Jesus the head of the church. The Holy Catholic church brings the Divine Will to mankind through its teachings, sacraments, and prayers. To those who are not Catholic or do not know me, I say to you, I am, Jesus, The Divine Mercy of the Divine Will. Repent, ask for forgiveness of your sins, and pray to the Holy Spirit who will guide you into all truth. I have given you my Mother Mary as an intercessor for you. Pray to her, for her mission is to lead you to her son Jesus. If you do not know how to pray, simply say, Lord be merciful to me a sinner and receive my mercy and forgiveness. The fulfillment of the Divine Will is to dwell in the souls of mankind. This is our desire. Is this your desire?
There will be no peace on earth until mankind acknowledges and accepts the Divine Will.
Now, listen to the Apocalypse describe the second vision:
And power was given him over every tribe, and people, and tongue, and nation… And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character in their right hand, or on their foreheads. And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Apocalypse 13:7, 16, 17)
The sins of your generation, without repentance, will bring the justice of God on your earth. This will be a punishment for rejecting the Divine Will. An event will happen which will be a warning to mankind to repent and accept the Divine Will. This has been called the warning or illumination of conscience.
Behold, he cometh with the clouds, and every eye shall see him, and they also that pierced him. And all the tribes of the earth shall bewail themselves because of him. Even so. Amen. (Apocalypse 1:7)
This verse describes the warning. All of humanity will see my cross and suffering in the sky. At that moment, every person will see their sins and the current state of their soul. Also, your eternal destination and judgment will be revealed to you, as if it occurred, at that moment. You will then know the truth of the Divine Will. You will be given an opportunity to repent. If you repent and accept my mercy, your sins will be forgiven. This event will take place because of my Divine Mercy and Divine Love for each person who is alive on your earth.
If mankind refuses the Divine Mercy of the warning, a chastisement greater than the flood will occur. My Father will allow Satan to establish the kingdom of an antichrist to punish mankind for rejecting the Divine Will. Your nations will be subjugated, your freedoms lost, with persecution and death to all who oppose this satanic kingdom. The demons of hell will be unchained and then My Father will cause the earth to undergo three days of darkness whereby the world will be cleansed of sin and the powers of hell. All those rejecting the Divine Will, without repentance, will be cast into hell until the final judgment. After the three days of darkness, the era of peace and the kingdom of the Divine will, will reign on earth as it is in heaven.
I warn you again you have a choice. Repent and enter the era of peace or reject the Divine Will and suffer the justice of the Divine Will of the Holy Trinity. The choice is each of yours today. Be like Josue and say,
But if it seem evil to you to serve the Lord, you have your choice: choose this day that which pleaseth you, whom you would rather serve, whether the gods which your fathers served in Mesopotamia, or the gods of the Amorrhites, in whose land you dwell: but as for me and my house we will serve the Lord. (Josue 24:15)
The Divine Will gives you the same choice today. Reject the lies and the false gods of your day or face the justice of the Divine Will of the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Divine Mercy and Divine Love of Jesus Christ brings these words to you today.
LOCUTIONS TO THE WORLD
February 27, 2011
The Holy Spirit’s Words
You must not think that I speak on my own. I conceived the Eternal Word by the power of the Holy Spirit and I conceive these living words only the Spirit’s light.
The Holy Spirit made me the Mother of God and Mother of the Church. He abides in me and through these words he will bring forth new children of the Father.
In the gospels, I said little because my Son’s voice had to be heard. However, the world did not listen because he spoke words of judgment and repentance, which the world did not want to hear. I am the encourager, inviting the world to listen more carefully to his words.
Jesus’ words are light but minds are often darkened. I will explain his words, and give everyone a chance to hear his words a second time. Listened to afresh, his invitation to the kingdom will be heard anew. I will explain his most difficult sayings, which Satan twists to create obstacles. When these obstacles are removed, the sheep will follow the Shepherd’s voice.
“If anyone does not take up his cross and follow me, he cannot be my disciple.”
The cross forces each soul to ask, “What are my motives? Do I really love Jesus?” This saying forces the soul to look within. If it finds love, then it will follow. If it does not find love, then it must search for it. Without love, the soul will begin the journey but will never complete it. The soul will overcome trials only by some inner love for Jesus that forces it to go on.
“Whoever looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
These words challenge the soul to greatness, to conquer their own heart and the passions that flow within. Only a purified heart can receive God’s gifts, so these words protect the soul from shameless ventures that would defile the soul.
“If your eye is a scandal, then pluck it out.”
These words contain a hidden wisdom which is needed because this world is not perfect. These words are needed for this time on earth, until that which is perfect comes. Just a little while. That is all Jesus asks. Discipline your eyes.
“Unless a man deny himself, he cannot be my disciple.”
My Son came to gain divine life for you. Can you receive the new if you cling to the old?
“Seek first the Kingdom of God.”
What else should you seek? Does my Son offer you half a loaf? Or give you bread that perishes? He gives you a noble task, worthy of the human person. He created you for the kingdom.
“The seed falling into the ground must die, or it remains alone.”
Jesus has placed great treasures within you. Will you take these to your grave still unopened? A seed that does not die is an unopened treasure, worthy only to be cast out. Its existence has served no purpose.
“It would be better for that man if he had never been born.”
When Jesus said these words, his heart was sorrowful and broken. He had done all he could to save Judas. However, Judas had made his decision and had departed the Last Supper. More grace was fruitless. No one enters the kingdom just because they have received much grace (as Judas had). The free will must speak its “yes” to God’s grace.

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”
“I come to share with you some unknown facts concerning My appearances after My resurrection. Every time I appeared after My death, it was in obedience to My Father’s Will. Each time it was to convert souls. Often it was to anchor weak faith. Every apparition here* is towards the same end. Often it is the Message** itself which accomplishes this.”
“My Father chose the circumstance, the people involved and the way hearts would be touched in each apparition. It is the same here today. I always answered His call in obedience. Today, I suggest you review at least one Scripture passage which describes one of these apparitions.”

Jesus Appears to His Disciples
As they were saying this, Jesus himself stood among them, and said to them, “Peace to you.” But they were startled and frightened, and supposed that they saw a spirit. And he said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do questionings rise in your hearts? See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself; handle me, and see; for a spirit has not flesh and bones as you see that I have.” And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. And while they still disbelieved for joy, and wondered, he said to them, “Have you anything here to eat?” They gave him a piece of broiled fish, and he took it and ate before them.
Then he said to them, “These are my words which I spoke to you, while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the law of Moses and the prophets and the psalms must be fulfilled.” Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures, and said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be preached in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. And behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you; but stay in the city, until you are clothed with power from on high.”

Our Lady of Medjugorje
Message Given To Mirjana on the Day for Non-Believers
February 2, 2018
“Dear children, you whom my Son loves, you whom I love with an immeasurable motherly love, do not permit for selfishness, for self love, to rule the world. Do not permit for love and goodness to be hidden. You who are loved, who have come to know the love of my Son, remember that to be loved means to love. My children, have faith. When you have faith you are happy and are spreading peace; your soul trembles with joy. My Son is in such a soul. When you are giving yourself for the faith, when you are giving yourself for love, when you are doing good to your neighbor, my Son smiles in your soul. Apostles of my love, I am turning to you as a mother. I am gathering you around myself and I desire to lead you on the way of love and faith, on the way which leads to the light of the world. I am here for the sake of love, for the sake of faith, because with my motherly blessing I desire to give you hope and strength on your way – because the way which leads to my Son is not easy. It is full of renunciation, giving, sacrifice, forgiveness and much, much love. But this way leads to peace and happiness. My children, do not believe lying voices which speak to you about false things, false glitter. You, my children, return to the Scripture. I am looking at you with immeasurable love, and through God’s grace am making myself evident to you. My children, set out with me. May your soul tremble with joy. Thank you.”
Dear Beloved Blog Followers,
As many of you know, I wrote a product review of a Catholic Bible study software that has a free version that I recommended recently on the blog, MaryRefugeOfHolyLove. (See review: Verbum Catholic Bible Study Software Review, https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/2017/10/05/verbum-catholic-bible-study-software-review/) Well, I will be very honest and say, that I do not read Holy Scripture very much beyond listening during Sunday Mass. It is mainly because I get overwhelmed on where to even begin and I have lacked some good Bible study references to explain things. So, I have been very happily exploring my new Catholic software, because it has given me access to some really good references that I never would have been able to buy on my own (electronic versions are much cheaper for these types of books and I do not have to worry about storage space, etc.; also, I have no access to a scholarly library, etc.). So, each day, I have been spending a little time on Holy Scripture trying to make up for years of neglect (Lord, please forgive me!).
Now, in the void of not knowing much Holy Scripture, I have spent most of my time discerning and contemplating heavenly messages for the past several years—which are much easier for me to readily understand. I have also always felt that modern-day heavenly messages are very important to study—after all, if Our Lord and Our Lady are speaking to us now, then it must be important to know. Also, I have always felt that the holy words of Our Lord for today are no different in value from Holy Scripture from 2000 years ago. After all, it is God—need I say more? So, that is why I have been able to write much, in general, about heavenly messages.
Thus, I like to think that my years of neglecting Holy Scripture are “made up” by my many hundreds of hours contemplating heavenly messages of Our Lord and Our Lady (although, St. Jerome is probably laughing at me and likely disagrees if readers are familiar with his famous quote—oh, Lord, please forgive me, for my ignorance!).
Well, earlier this week, I decided to read up on what the scholars had to say about the Book of Revelation, specifically, Chapters 11, 13, and 17. Chapter 11 is about the Two Witnesses of the Apocalypse and Chapters 13 and 17 are about the antichrist, false prophet, mark of the beast, Babylon, etc. The Book of Truth given to 7th messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, by Our Lord, has much to say about these things, as well as other private revelation that I believed in, so I figured it would be good to increase my knowledge about these matters by reading what the Holy Mother Church had to say through the years. After all, as a faithful Catholic, I follow the teachings of the Magisterium.
Oh, my brothers and sisters, I was shocked! I was expecting to find some common ground between what Our Lord and Our Lady have been revealing to us in modern-day messages with the teachings of Holy Mother Church… Stunned, I discovered that Holy Mother Church offers three different ways to interpret the Book of Revelation—having not one consistent and reliable way of interpreting the Apocalypse for modern-day readers –and all three ways having very little in common with what Our Lord and Our Lady are telling us these days, the End Times.
And when I discovered this alarming situation, I felt moved out of compassion to do a special commentary especially, for Catholic priests and theologians, who are going to experience much shock at the Great Warning (Illumination of Conscience). Many of them are going to realize how very little that they truly know about Holy Scripture—especially, relating to this time that we are living in—the End Times and that we are the chosen generation that will experience the Second Coming of Our Lord. So, I spent several hours researching this past week, putting together a “comparative study” of what I know from the Book of Truth and other private revelation about these matters, in comparison with what is being taught in the seminaries and by theologians, etc. Specifically, the study is on the differences between key passages of Chapters 11, 13, and 17 of the Book of Revelation. (I may do other comparative studies in the future about the Book of Revelation but I leave that up to the Holy Spirit to direct me).
Now, I want people to know that I am not a formal scholar. I do have graduate degrees, so I am familiar with advanced research and writing, but like I admitted, I am not at all an expert on Holy Scripture—that is not my field of studies. Also, I learned many years ago the folly of human knowledge, realizing that everything I learned in graduate school was worth nothing to the Truth of God. So, I offered God the use of my intellect a longtime ago, basically, unlearning everything I was taught in school, so I could instead focus on God and His wisdom. And to be honest, the more that I strive to know about God, the little I realize that I even know in the first place. Truly, I have much to learn.
And so, I want people to know that the commentary that I wrote is very basic and simple to read, summarized in three different charts. So, although I wrote it especially for priests, the commentary can be easily read by anyone who wants to learn. Anyone who reads it is going to become very concerned for the Catholic Church, because it is very revealing about the “intellectual snobbery” that Our Lord has commented quite a few times about in the Book of Truth. It will also become very apparent why so many of the clergy reject the Book of Truth given to Maria Divine Mercy, Marian apparitions in general, and modern-day prophecy. Truly, I am shocked by what the seminaries are teaching and how different it is from what Heaven is actually revealing to us.
So, although I did this out of love for our priests, this special commentary is for everyone, too. Here is the link for all to read:
Comparative Study On The Book Of Revelation (Apocalypse) (Chapters 11, 13, And 17)
I pray that many people are blessed, especially, our beloved priests and their discernment.

Our Lady is here dressed in white and gray. She says:
“Praise be to Jesus.”
“I have come to tell you that the First Seal has been opened.* Now is the time when hearts and nations will be conquered. Evil plots in hearts will be manifest and much good will be destroyed.”
“You, My children, must unite in the Truth. Do not delay. My Son will assist you. I offer you the grace of the Refuge of My Heart. Do not allow labels such as Catholic or Protestant to divide you. We are all one in the trials which are here and lie ahead. Pray for wisdom and perseverance. Do not be fooled by title, authority or influenced by ill-gotten power.”
“I have come to persuade you into Holy Love which is a universal call to all.”
Maureen: “Blessed Mother, I don’t know what this means about the Seal. Can you explain it please?”
“There are as many interpretations as there are scripture scholars. I can tell you this – it marks the beginning and the end – the beginning of Christ’s Reign and the End Times is at hand. The end of God’s Merciful restraint of His Justice is upon you. Many have believed that this Seal was already broken. However, I tell you today that there will be more profound struggles between good and evil. There will be consequences to evil acts that can only be interpreted as God’s Justice, if wisdom intercedes at all.”
“This is why I plead with all Christians to unite and act with one heart towards the welfare of all.”
* Read Revelations 6:1-2+
Synopsis: Each of the Seven Seals represent the unleashing of afflictions reserved for sinful men found in a list hidden in the scroll which only the Lamb of God will break open as reserved to Him in carrying out the Divine Plan. Each of the Four Horsemen symbolize a particular woe connected with woe and destruction.
Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures say, as with a voice of thunder, “Come!” And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and its rider had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says:
“Praise be to Jesus.”
“I can only tell you (Maureen) what I told you last night. People must understand that private revelation does not have to be approved by theologians to be genuine. Human error is too often part of discernment. The fact is, judgment often takes the place of discernment. Minds are set on disapproving rather than discovering the Truth.”
“When you see a bird soaring overhead you know that he sees everything below – a bird’s-eye view – you would say. These Messages* come into the world to give the listener a bird’s-eye view of where the heart of the world is headed during the present age. It was never My Son’s intent that people live in fear, unforgiveness and hunger not only for food, but hunger for power, popularity and money.”
“The call of these Messages is to allow Holy Love to possess your hearts, thereby transforming the heart of the world. This is the path of Jesus’ Victory.”
* The Messages of Holy and Divine Love at Maranatha Spring and Shrine.
Read 2 Thessalonians 3:1-5+
Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the Word of the Lord may speed on and triumph, as it did among you, and that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men; for not all have faith. But the Lord is faithful; He will strengthen you and guard you from evil. And we have confidence in the Lord about you, that you are doing and will do the things which we command. May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.

Verbum Catholic Bible Study Software Review (by a soul):
(October 4, 2017) — I am doing this product review as I want my blog followers of MaryRefugeOfHolyLove to be made aware of a Catholic Bible Study Software that I have been trying out for the past few weeks. It is built on the Logos 7 Bible Study Platform which is used by Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish scholars and Bible learners. It is called Verbum.
If you have ever wondered how your parish priest reads the Holy Bible and prepares his weekly homilies, well, he is probably using Verbum software.
I am not new to Bible study software. From 2006-2013, I used older versions of Logos software, which was mainly based on Protestant works with the limited Catholic resources that were available at the time. In 2013, I tried out the new Verbum software which was geared for Catholics, and to be honest, I did not like it. The features were too clunky and not robust enough for me and there were not enough Catholic resources available, so I asked for a refund and gave up on Bible study software. Then, during the summer, I discovered a free Bible study software online, which was mainly Protestant based, but was sophisticated enough to meet my limited needs; and so, that was where I was at until a few weeks ago–when I decided to visit the Verbum website out of a whim, asking myself, “why not?”
Well, it was mid-September, and while searching the website, I discovered that there was a FREE “Basic” version of the Verbum software available for people to use. The FREE Basic version contained 12 resources, including two excellent Catholic Bible commentaries that I had never had before and two very good Catholic dictionaries. And because it was all FREE, I decided it was worth a try. So, I downloaded the FREE version to my computer.
Well, imagine my surprise, when I discovered that all my old eBooks that I had purchased between 2006-2013 downloaded with the FREE version, too. I found out that all the old Logos licenses were still honored and I was so happy to see the three Catholic commentaries that I had purchased before (two of them no longer available on Logos 7–the Oxford and Jerome commentaries), as well as other works that I had purchased (I had several books on Biblical counseling, Charismatic movement, and the complete Max Lucado library). And when I tried out the FREE version of Verbum, it was so much better–the improvements were more intuitive and powerful, I was instantly hooked. So, I purchased the “Starter” version of the software and I have been very happy exploring all the resources, so I am writing this review to recommend it.
Now, I want to say Verbum software is not cheap. Currently, they are having a sale for the “Starter” version, I believe until October 11, 2017, The Starter version is the most inexpensive version and Verbum is having a special sale–this is the first time the software is less then two hundred dollars. Yes, it is regularly almost three hundred dollars, so for most people, it is probably best to get the FREE Basic version and buy books as you need them. If it were not on a special sale and the fact that I got an additional discount for owning Logos before as I already had some of the eBooks, I would not have been able to afford even the Starter version. It is indeed a significant purchase.
However, I am happy to recommend the FREE Basic version to everyone. It comes with three different Bibles, two excellent Catholic commentaries, a very good Concordance, two Catholic dictionaries/encyclopedias, etc. Also, once you have the Verbum software, there are also a few other free resources available as well. There is a “free book of the month” for Verbum, as well as a free nondenominational Bible study collection (Lexham Intro), that I recommend downloading. Also, below is a short list of eBooks that I recommend purchasing if you only use the FREE Basic version (these eBooks come with the Starter version). They include two Catholic Bibles, the Catholic Lectionary, and the Catechism under Pope John Paul II.
Now, what can you do with the Verbum Bible Study software? Well, people who purchase the more advanced packages can study Sacred Scripture in the original languages of Latin, Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic. But, if you are like me, I just find it fascinating to study the different English translations, as well as the different interpretations among Biblical scholars for various Sacred Scripture verses. I also like learning the historical contexts for events and people in the Holy Bible and I like having access to historical maps, images, etc. The best part about having Bible study software is being able to trace verses and words between many different resources and eBooks. It makes Sacred Scripture become alive and interactive. I also like having many devotional eBooks in one place, as I love to do daily spiritual reading to improve myself.
I hope a lot of people take advantage of this offer. God bless!

Our Lady of Medjugorje
Message To Ivan’s Prayer Group
May 29, 2017
IVAN: Today, as every day, I would briefly like to describe tonight’s meeting together with Our Lady. Also today Our Lady came to us joyful and happy and She greeted all of us, at the beginning, with Her motherly greeting, ‘Praised be Jesus my dear children.’ Then, for a while, She prayed over all of us here, with Her arms extended, and She prayed especially over those of you who are sick. Then Our Lady said:
“Dear children, also today I desire to call you to put God in your lives in the first place. To place God in your families in the first place. To accept* His words, the words of the Gospel and to live them in your lives and your families. Dear children, in a special way, through this time I call you to the Holy Mass, to the Eucharist; to read the Sacred Scripture more in your families with your children. Thank you, dear children, also today for having responded to my call.”
Then Our Lady blessed all of us with Her motherly blessing, and She also blessed everything you brought to be blessed. Then I recommended all of you, all of your needs, your intentions, your families and, in a special way, all the sick and those who, in a special way recommended themselves to prayer. After that Our Lady continued to pray over all of us here for awhile, and She left in that prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross, with a greeting, “Go in peace my dear children.”
* accept, The Croatian word translated to accept has several meanings and may need further clarification.
