God the Father – “The best penance is to fast from your own will – This requires the effort in your heart to please Me above all else – to love Me above all else”

Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says:

“My children, you are now in a penitential season* in preparation for the celebration of Easter.** Therefore, let us discuss penance. The best penance is to fast from your own will. This requires the effort in your heart to please Me above all else – to love Me above all else. This is, after all, the first of My Commandments. To accomplish this, you must make the effort not to see how everything affects you yourself. Place the world and all its allurements last in the priorities of your heart. Surrender the ill effects of any illness that may befall you.”

“This is also a recipe for peace of heart. Such a resolve in your heart brings you deeper into trust in My Divine Will. So much time and energy is wasted when souls rely only on themselves and human effort. I remind you, I am more powerful than anyone or anything. It is I who manage the circumstances of your earthly existence. Your best decision, then, is to abandon yourselves to Me. Do not look to the future with dread, but with loving trust. I await your surrender of your will every morning.”

* Lent – a penitential season of forty days, not counting Sundays. This year Lent began on March 6th – Ash Wednesday, and will end on April 20th – Holy Saturday.
** April 21st.

Read Colossians 3:5-10+

Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. In these you once walked, when you lived in them. But now put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and foul talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his practices and have put on the new man, who is being renewed in knowledge after the image of his creator.

Feast of Our Lady of Fatima
Mother’s Day
A.M.

Our Lady comes as Our Lady of Fatima. She has the three shepherd children* with her. She says:

“Praise be to Jesus”.

“My dear children, I come to you today in the same manner and with the same purpose as I did over 100 years ago in Fatima** – to encourage prayer, sacrifice and fasting in order to avoid a future disaster – in that case World War II.”

“People did not listen to me at Fatima. There were no approvals or encouragement from Church officials to do so. As a result, you had World War II.”

“Today, I visit you in much the same atmosphere. I warn you of still greater catastrophes than any war. I speak of a catastrophe which will affect every man, woman and child. I speak of a nuclear conflict which will change even the laws of nature itself.”

“My dear children, you must take this Motherly warning to heart. Pray as though the future of the planet and your own existence depends upon it. The threat of this calamity will never be erased until Heaven and earth are one. It is only by man’s efforts you can hasten the victory of Heaven on earth.”

“The Father sends Me today just as He did at Fatima. My Motherly concern and prayer is for your victory over evil. I am always with you though few recognize My presence.”

* Lucia Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto.

Feast of Our Lady of Fatima
Mother’s Day
P.M.

Our Lady returns as Our Lady of Fatima. She says:

“Praise be to Jesus”.

“I have returned to speak to you, yet further, concerning certain future events. You, in the world, spend much time judging and criticizing one another. Yet, little time is given over to prayer. If you would reform this attitude and pray for one another, many lives would change and certain threats to peace would be alleviated.”

“My Son’s Arm of Justice grows so heavy, I have enlisted the help of the angels in Heaven to support It. The angels hide their eyes at the vision of what is to come by way of God’s Wrath.”

“Do not continue to antagonize My Son’s Justice.”

Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says:

“I AM WHO AM. I come to you as the Heavenly Father. You have a clear sky today, as all the clouds have parted. I compare that to the conscience of the world. I speak here* to clear away the cloudy conditions in hearts and to make clear these times you are in. Many await with anxiety the coming of the apocalypse. I tell you, solemnly, you are already living in the hour of the apocalypse. Nuclear arms are in the hands of evil. That, in itself, is enough to bring time, as you know it, to an end. You have a record-breaking fire escalating in California. Natural disasters are increasing in numbers and intensity. This is not the hour to decide if what I tell you is true. It is the hour to act on your decision that what I say is true.”

“Your actions should include more prayer and sacrifices – fasting if you are able; propagation of these Messages** and learning of your dependency upon your angels. Live in the Truth. That way we will be victorious together.”

Michael Defeats the Dragon

Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they were defeated and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world – he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death. Rejoice then, O heaven and you that dwell therein! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!”

“Dear children! Today I am calling you: pray for peace. Leave selfishness and live the messages which I am giving you. Without them, you cannot change your life. By living prayer, you will have peace. By living in peace, you will feel the need to witness, because you will discover God whom you now feel to be far away. Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray and permit God to enter into your hearts. Return to fasting and confession so as to overcome the evil in you and around you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

“Understanding Worldwide Evil”

Mary

The Trojan Horse

Good and evil are not separated. They are intertwined in every event and in every moment. Evil inserts itself into all that is good and good is present even when evil seems to be triumphant. This is the mystery I will explain. Except in those actions which are totally divine, all of human history is a mixture of good and evil.

Not understanding that human events are a mixing of good and evil, man often proclaims as good what is only partially good. He, then, opens his heart to it, not knowing that evil enters with the good. If the evil is not impeded, it takes over the good and destroys it. There remains only the selfishness of man, not the goodness of God which initially inspired the action.

Look at human history. So many events and movements have begun with the good but have ended with evil. See the French Revolution that began with high ideals but soon became the tool of evil, causing social disruption, overturning the divine and making reason the new god of mankind. So much evil goes back to that revolution because man was not aware that evil attached itself to good, like the Trojan horse, to enter unnoticed into the city.

Comment: Mary points out what man often overlooks, the evil mixed with the good that enters history unnoticed until the effects are seen.

Explaining Why Man is Confused

Now, let me explain good and evil. Each has its own fruits and its own source. Good comes from God alone and is given freely to all creation. God saw that everything was good as it came from his hands. Man and woman were created in God’s own image. They were rooted in divine goodness, more than any other material creation. Man was meant to be the bearer of divine life and the purpose of material creation. Yet, man became the door to evil, the only door that Satan could have used, the only creature with free will. What was good (the free will of man) was used for evil and became the door to chaos.

The world is now filled with a goodness that comes from God and an evil that enters by man’s free will. Man does not understand this. It is like light and darkness. As if man forgot that all light comes from the sun. So, he walks away from the sun and is plunged in darkness and he does not know why. Man forgets God. He turns away from God and wonders why the world is plunged into evil. Then, he blames God for the evil that does not come from God.

Progress That is Not Progress

O Man, you must turn back to the source of all goodness. Purify your works of evil. Otherwise, you are blind. Your solutions will be no solutions until you understand that everything which man brings forth is a mixture of good and evil. Without God, the good will always carry evil with it. Without God, the good that was originally intended will soon surrender to the evil that accompanied it. It is a purified mankind that I seek, when creation will once again be creation, “as it was in the beginning”.

Without God, progress is not progress. To each new invention, evil is attached. I do not say, “Halt all progress”. I say, “Let your progress be done in God and it will be true progress. Progress without God carries only greater potential for destruction.”

O Man without God, look at the world you have brought about. Is it progress that your bombs are atomic bombs? Is it progress that your technology destroys the very earth that you live on? Look at all your technology. Look at the powerful Internet that causes so many problems.

Look at everything. Everything you produce for good is taken over by evil. This is the mystery that I put before you. You are building a world without God. You are building a destructive creation. God must purify creation before creation destroys itself.

Comment: Mary answers a confusing question, “Why is the world less safe when we have had so much progress?”

Approaching a Disastrous Moment

The world is approaching that moment when the power of Satan will have two aspects. First, he will have linked his evil into what is truly a worldwide system. Second, this system will contain the power to destroy most of the world.

I say this. The heavenly Father will not allow this but he has only two alternatives. Either he purifies creation by divine chastisements that totally disrupt what Satan is putting in place so that all of creation is not destroyed. Or, the world comes into my Immaculate Heart and I reveal a much easier salvation, by which hearts are touched and the evil attached to progress and inventions is purified. In this way, the power is used for good and not evil.

The choice is a solemn one, filled with a thousand ramification which touch the hearts of people and the fibers of society. I say this again and again – the secrets of God lie in my Immaculate Heart. That is where the Father has placed them.

Comment: What Mary says is almost self-evident. Man is approaching a moment when he not only can destroy himself but the forces of evil are present that are willingly and even hope to destroy large segments of humanity. What she reveals is even more important. The only way to avoid world-wide disaster is to listen to her wisdom.

Importance of Fasting and Self Denial

Importance of Fasting and Self Denial
Monday, May 16th, 2011 @ 11:30

My beloved daughter, you are finally realizing that without Me you are nothing. It is through My graces that you receive life in My Father’s Kingdom. Without My Presence in your life it will be barren and devoid of any real meaning. Oh how I wish all My
children would understand the life that I can bring them, especially through the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. For it is only when you receive Me into your frail souls through the Divine Bread and Wine that you will truly feel My Love. This Love will strengthen you, not only in your soul, but in your mind. My Presence will lift you to become true followers of Mine.

A follower of Mine who does not receive Me regularly through this Most Holy Sacrament will be like a vessel that is only half full. You need My Body and Blood, which was shed for you all, to fill you with My True Presence. For without this you will be unable to find the real strength to proclaim My Glory fully.

Children, you must understand that belief in My Existence is just part of your spiritual journey. There is so much more you need to understand. It will only be through your denial of the pleasures of the flesh that you will truly be fulfilled. By virtue of the fact that Satan controls man through the temptations of the flesh so too should you deny him the access to those pleasures you may seek.

Fasting is one of the most powerful ways to rid your soul of Satan and his demons. So few people in the world can commit to this sacrifice, yet it is so simple and does not damage your health. One day of fasting a week will bring you special graces. By making small sacrifices in honour of Me, your Divine Saviour, you will not only save souls, but you will become closer to Me. Other sacrifices where you denounce worldly goods will also bring you closer to My Sacred Heart.

Life, My children, should not be all about the pursuit of material things, if they are surplus to your real needs. By accepting simple needs and by devoting your time to Me, you will experience true contentment. Not only that, but for the first time in your life you will know the meaning of true freedom. Remember, Satan controls man through the desires of the flesh including food, clothes, sex, homes, cars, holidays, luxury living, music, alcohol and idolatry of famous people. By accepting that these are simply illusions, you will then understand that your time on Earth should not be wasted with such useless pursuits. Your time on Earth, children, is just part of your journey into eternity. Life of a different kind will continue for you after death.

Irrespective as to whether people believe in God the Eternal Father or not, their soul will still exist after death. Seek now the Light so that your soul will experience true happiness for eternity and an exalted place in Paradise. To achieve this level of spiritual sanctity please make sacrifices of the flesh while are you are still alive on Earth. Offer, too, all your sufferings in your life for lost souls and you will reap the rewards waiting for you in the next life.

Your loving Saviour

Jesus Christ

How Easy is it to Sin

How Easy is it to Sin
Monday, January 24th, 2011 @ 22:00

Today, My beloved daughter, you have finally understood the dangers posed by the deceiver, when you let down your guard. Prayer to My Eternal Father, through the Divine Mercy Chaplet, is important in sanctifying your soul.

Sin, My beloved daughter, is hard to avoid. It is harder to achieve My special graces than it is to avoid sin in any form. When you have been called to do this sacred Work, you will always be a target of the evil one, who sets out at every opportunity, to create negativity in your life. He will use those around you as a means of attack, which is why you must always be on your guard against him. Never let him win, because when he does he succeeds in infesting souls and causes terrible pain, anguish and suffering. He causes friendships to disintegrate, confusion, despair, and instils false thoughts in the minds of his targets. Then, when My children feel guilt at their own weakness, for succumbing to temptation, they experience a form of wretchedness that brings desperation, misery and distraction into their lives.

My children, you will always be tempted into sin. Perfection of your souls is extremely difficult to attain and requires a tremendous discipline and determination on your part. If and when you fall prey to the evil one’s seduction and commit sin, you must immediately pray from your heart and seek forgiveness.

Regular Confession is a Sacrament much misunderstood. It is only by weekly attendance in the confessional that your soul can remain in a state of grace. When your soul is sanctified in this manner and through daily prayer, only then can you can keep the deceiver at bay.

The guilt of sin

If you suffer guilt as a result of sinful action, irrespective as to how grievous the offence is in My Father’s Eyes, don’t fret. Turn back, open your heart, and ask for forgiveness. Guilt is a negative feeling. And while it serves as a form of guiding your conscience, it is not healthy to remain in this state. Ask for the graces, through prayer, to attain the purity of soul required to serve Me. Patience is important. Never let sin drive you away from Me. Guilt must never stand in the way of seeking redemption.

Remember, children, that because of original sin, you will always fall victim to the temptation of the evil one. It is through prayer, fasting and dedication to the Holy Eucharist that you will become closer to Me. This does require time, which must be set aside.

Go now, My children, and remember one thing – never be afraid to turn back to Me when you have sinned. Never be embarrassed to ask for forgiveness when you are truly remorseful. But remember also that when you don’t, you will attract the deceiver again and again and your soul will plunge into darkness. Darkness attracts dark. Light attracts light. I Am the Light.

Turn to Me now and let My Love shine through your poor, lost souls. I love you so much, My children, that when you turn your hearts towards Me, no matter how much isolation you feel, you will never be turned away.

Go in peace and love,

Your Divine Saviour

Jesus Christ

Carrying My Cross

Carrying My Cross
Sunday, January 16th, 2011 @ 15:00

Yes, My beloved daughter, it is I. It has been a long learning curve for you and you will continue to be fed with the knowledge of the Truth through the Gift of the Holy Spirit, which fills your soul.

My daughter, please ensure that these Messages, which are a mixture of forewarnings, prophecies and a summary of My Teachings, are spread to every corner of the world. It is vital that My children understand the ways in which they can prepare their souls in order to redeem themselves in the Eyes of My Father.

Spiritual Renewal taking place in the world now

There is an emerging devotion and honour of Me, My Eternal Father, the Holy Spirit and My beloved Mother, taking place in the world right now. Although it is not clearly visible yet, this powerful spiritual renewal will help protect My children, even those who turn their backs on Me, everywhere. The Gospel will now be revisited, as people will begin to experience the hunger pangs for the Truth. As the Purification steadily increases and becomes more widespread around the world, so too will these souls, empty of love for Me, open their hearts again.

As the love unfolds through the light of My followers, the effects of the evil one and the behaviour of those he infests will weaken. The evil one will retaliate.

Satan’s days are numbered

As his days on this Earth lessen by the hour, he will attempt to inflict as much damage as he can. His followers will quicken their activities and rise immediately to spread wickedness everywhere. Their actions, which will be terrible to bear witness to, as they manifest themselves before your astonished eyes, will be short-lived.

Faith, My children, strengthened through regular daily prayer, will stamp out these atrocities. Go back, My children, and rediscover My Teachings. Bring Me back into your lives. Take Me into your hearts once more, so that I can hold you in My Arms. Let Me guide you towards spiritual perfection, so that you are prepared for eternal life, when Earth and Heaven emerge as one.

Imitate Me, My children, in your daily lives. Take up My Cross, even when the burden of doing so may seem too much. Never fear to accept My Cross, as I will only allow you to carry what you are capable of.

Meaning of suffering in this life

When you suffer in this life, you are carrying My Cross. You have two choices. If you reject My Cross, moan and are bitter because of it, then the suffering increases unabated. On the other hand if you accept the Cross and offer up your suffering to save souls, then this is a wonderful gift to Me. If you accept this suffering, the trials and tribulations, with joy, then your load will become lighter. I will help you carry it. The pain will then ease and peace, love, joy and pure happiness will reign in you.

Lead simple lives

Live simple lives, children, and do everything in moderation. When you eat, drink, sleep, rest and relax, ensure that it is done in moderation. Once your physical needs are met, you should not continue to seek more, as it saps your spirit. Penance, My children, is vital to your becoming closer to Me. By this, I mean personal sacrifice. Fasting is just one example of penance. I preached the importance of penance during My time on Earth. So too did My precious prophet, Saint John the Baptist.

I, by fasting for 40 days, did so to show you an example. It is only by fasting, children, that you will help drive out the evil one.

My dear children, you have so much ahead of you. You do not understand yet what will be required of you in the years ahead. It is important, in the meantime, to draw closer to Me, so that you are prepared for the trials ahead that face Christians throughout the world.

Go in Peace.

Your loving Saviour

Jesus Christ
