Dear Beloved Followers,
As followers of this blog, MaryRefugeOfHolyLove, each of you are part of a very tiny minority and I, a soul, love each of you every much.
Recently, on February 4, 2018, Our Heavenly Father said these words at Holy Love Ministry (http://www.holylove.org):
“You must be united in love to be victorious. Division in hearts is the first step towards war. Do not focus on your differences, but on your likenesses… Holy Love is the solution to everything which threatens peace in hearts. If you love Me above all else and your neighbor as yourself, there can be no conflict amongst you. Surrender to My Call to be Holy Love. In your acceptance, is your surrender.”
The fact is, the Remnant Faithful, is very small, and you, dearly beloved followers, are an even smaller part of the Remnant. I believe that each of you know this, but I want you to truly know how special and loved you are by God and Heaven. So, I am writing this short commentary to encourage you in this love.
The fact is, you, dear followers, believe, while others do not. And yet, we are all part of the Remnant Faithful, and Our Heavenly Father wants us to focus not on our differences, but on the things that matter—our likenesses and love of the Lord. Let me tell you what prompted this writing.
I do not follow much of the media, but when I do, I gravitate towards certain websites for understanding. One of them is Church Militant which is run by Michael Voris. And on today’s website, they have a video that I want to share on the blog. It is titled: “The Pope and Sodomy” and it is really informative. Here it is:
Video: The Pope and Sodomy (7:51 minutes)
Now, I want you blog followers to know that I have a lot of respect for Michael Voris. He and his journalism team are very much devoted to Our Lord. But, I want you to know something you may not know. Recently, I found out that Michael lived the homosexual lifestyle for many years of his adult life. But, he turned his life around upon the deathbed of his mother and the Lord has used him in a mighty way, as you can see his dedication in his Church Militant news-reporting video.
Now, his gay past was not something that Michael Voris wanted to be publicly known. But, Michael revealed this fact on Church Militant a few years back when he was potentially going to be blackmailed due to his past. And I respect him for making the right decision, because that is a courageous move to make and I know it must have been difficult for him. But, he trusted in the Lord and the Lord blessed him and Church Militant continues to thrive despite that rocky moment.
The fact is, no one is perfect and I, a soul, have not lead a perfect life. I have my own mortal sins that grieve me before God, and to have to publicly admit them is hard for anyone to do. So, I found it sad when I was researching this fact on the internet and saw a few Catholic traditionalist websites shaming him for his former homosexual lifestyle that he had clearly repented of. The websites showed a video which was clearly in his early years of his return to the faith when he seemed to be struggling with his identity in God as a former gay man.
But, knowing myself, the person that I, a soul, was fifteen years ago when I returned to the Catholic faith, is not the same person I am today. I know my faith better and I am stronger in my beliefs. And although I have never sinned in that way (sodomy), I recognize myself in looking at Michael. Clearly, he has a better understanding of who he is in God and a deeper faith than his early videos of many years ago. I respect and admire him for repenting, because I know how hard that is—we all have our struggles and I cannot shame him for having a different sin than mine.
Now, I think that Church Militant is a news website that is worthy of supporting, because they are not afraid of revealing the various scandals inside the Catholic Church. Clearly, Church Militant is a part of the Remnant Faithful and the Lord is using them to build up the Church in a mighty way. But, I also want to say that I do not support everything that they believe. The fact is, I disagree with their public stances on many Marian apparitions and prophecy, etc. For example, Church Militant would never be supportive of this blog or any of the things that I write about, but on the points that matter—the Truth of the Catholic Faith and the Holy Eucharist, they are very much Catholic, Christian, and Traditional.
Yes, there are point of view differences, but Our Lord wants us to focus on our likenesses—that is where our Christian strengths lie as the Remnant Faithful. I am fine with leaving up to the Lord to change hearts at The Great Warning (Illumination of Conscience). The thing that I have learned by having this blog is that God has a Master Plan for everything and so, it is important for us to trust in Him and let go.
There are other Catholic news websites that I occasionally read too, such as Spirit Daily and Spirit Digest, as well as the old standard, Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), among others. I am also supportive of Catholic prophecy websites such as After The Warning and Sign & Wonders for Our Times, etc.
I enjoy perusing all of them for an occasional reading or two, but I also know that none of them are supportive of my blog either. I know because I have contacted each of them before to report news worthy messages from Our Lord and Our Lady and have been rejected by them all. Sadly, they only follow the “approved” apparitions of the Catholic Church and each of them has their own agenda and target audience, but that does not stop me from reading them and promoting them as well. I have also faced rejection by websites and groups associated with Medjugorje and the Book of Truth (Maria Divine Mercy), but that does not matter in the end either.
The reality is, all of these groups, these websites, these individuals, they are all part of the Remnant Faithful, and are deeply loved by God and Our Lady for clinging to the Tradition of the Faith. Even the groups deeply devoted to all things Latin Mass are, yes, part of this collective Remnant Faithful, too, though they pride themselves as being separate as the one and only true Catholic Church.
You, beloved blog followers of MaryRefugeOfHolyLove, are very special. Not only are you part of the small collective of the Remnant Faithful, you, by your belief in Holy Love and other Marian apparitions on this blog, are in the very center of the Beloved Hearts of Our Lord and Our Lady. To know of and believe in Holy Love is very unique and special. Although I wish that all of the Remnant Faithful believed in Holy Love, I trust in the Master Plan of Our Lady and I know that despite whatever differences there are today—and I say this, meaning differences not just among the Catholic Remnant but including also the greater Christian Remnant, everything is going to be reconciled at The Great Warning (Illumination of Conscience). So, whatever differences that seem apparent today among the Christian Faithful will be set aside by one mighty breath of the Holy Spirit in a single moment when we all realize our sinfulness before the Lord.
In conclusion, I want to share this Holy Love message that I always find inspiring that I believe speaks of what will happen to the Remnant Faithful on the day of The Great Warning. I hope that you all will find these words encouraging by Our Lord. God bless!

“Beloved, I am your Jesus, born Incarnate. I have come to you to bring light to the world. My Heart is a burning ember of Divine Love. It is unchanging and eternal. It bears an unquenchable thirst for souls, which can only be satisfied by the conversion of the world. The way into My Divine Love is Holy Love. Holy Love sanctifies even the most mundane moment. Holy Love opens the way and the door to My Heart. It is the imitation of every virtue. Therefore, understand Holy Love is the imitation of Divine Love. How sacred a mystery and revelation this is! Oh, that souls would understand and surrender to this way!”
“The age to come is one of hope, not despair – an age of challenge and victory. It will bring the forces of nature in line with the Divine Plan of peace and harmony. You will see the United Hearts reign in victory. Like a great magnetic force, My flock will unite and be drawn into the mystery of the United Hearts. Faith will be renewed and restored.”
“Until this age to come, persevere in belief, for I believe in you. I am calling upon you to be strong and energetic apostles of the way of Divine and Holy Love. These two are so closely united they cannot be parted. No one can believe only a little or sometimes, but always and with your whole heart. I am showing you the way into the Kingdom as it is to come.”
