God the Father – “I desire that each soul knows and trusts in Me – in My plans for them and the power of My intervention”

Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel

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 the Lord of time and space. Your trust in My Divine Will rises up through time and space, fills My Nostrils with the odor of holiness and penetrates My Heart. It is then – when you are most dependent upon Me – that My intervention is most swift and powerful.”

“Satan likes to fill each heart with hopelessness and discouragement. He is efficient in helping the soul to discount My Power. I am always open to the needs of a soul who is trying to trust. It is often amidst the most profound trials and circumstances that My Power is shown and is felt.”

“I desire that each soul knows and trusts in Me – in My plans for them and the power of My intervention. Have faith and the courage to believe.”

Read Psalm 4:1-8+

Answer me when I call, O God of my right!
You have given me room when I was in distress.
Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer.

O sons of men, how long will you be dull of heart?
How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies?

But know that the Lord has set apart the godly for himself;
the Lord hears when I call to him.

Be angry, but sin not;
commune with your own hearts on your beds, and be silent.

Offer right sacrifices,
and put your trust in the Lord.

There are many who say, “O that we might see some good!
Lift up the light of your countenance upon us, O LORD!”

You have put more joy in my heart
than they have when their grain and wine abound.

In peace I will both lie down and sleep;
for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.

Some Thoughts on Pope Francis and How satan Is So Truly Evil

Tuesday, June 12, 2018
Month of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

Oh, beloved blog followers of MaryRefugeOfHolyLove, how I tenderly love you all!

Today, at Holy Love Ministries (http://www.holylove.org), God the Father said the following words:

I invite all mankind to repose in My Heart where true peace abides. You cannot be at peace without Me. Worry is the bad fruit of lack of trust. You cannot trust anyone you do not know. Therefore, it is important that mankind knows Me as a loving Father.”

I will tell you very honestly, dear blog followers, that these past two days, my heart has been rent in sadness. I was telling Jesus in prayer last night, how can He have so much patience with all of us—all of us mankind? Because God knows the future and all the abuses we make due to his gift of free will and yet, Jesus and His Beloved Father continue to love us all despite our hateful acts?

I told Jesus in prayer, that I do not seriously understand His Great Love for us, because if I were God, I would have smite the world so long ago. Such were my feelings last night in prayer. So, my soul has been affected by Our Loving Father’s words today at Holy Love, where God the Father calls us to trust in Him and not worry, so we can have true peace in our hearts.

Oh, my beloved blog followers, a few months ago, in March 2018, Heaven told me certain prophecies about the future—in particular, about Pope Francis and other related matters about the Catholic Church. And well, unfortunately, I cannot reveal these prophecies publicly, because it would alter free will choices of mankind too much and would have negative consequences in the world. So, I have had to keep these prophecies private to myself and a few trusted friends who could pray about them.

Meanwhile, I have been laboring to do certain “behind-the-scene” projects for Jesus and the Blessed Mother with the genuine hope in my heart that the Great Apostasy that is taking form within the Catholic Church could be ultimately avoided. I have even written in a few recent commentaries how the Great Miracle of Garabandal has the potential to save the Catholic Church—that is how great my hope has been for the future of mankind.

Oh, my beloved blog followers, these past two days, my heart has been rent in sadness, knowing how truly evil that satan is. Because you see, I read a certain series of prophetic visions on a different prophecy website, and I have realized that even though that I have been working hard to prevent the the Great Apostasy of the Catholic Church from happening, my efforts will not halt it—that the Great Apostasy will still happen—delayed in time but not stopped and that the coming of the anti-christ will still happen and the Abomination of Desolation will still occur.

Now, let me back up and explain a few things. That way, you, my beloved blog followers, will understand clearer a few certain matters at hand that have been happening this past year and a half.

As many of you know, back in January 2017, I was told certain prophecies by St. Gabriel the Archangel about the unveiling of the Secrets of Medjugorje and Garabandal, and in particular, the nature of the Great Miracle of Garabandal, that God and Our Blessed Mother will use to further the Heavenly Plan for Peace in the world. I wrote about these prophecies in my Easter 2017 commentary at the time, also asking for prayer, because satan was heavily attacking me due to this knowledge:

After The Great Warning – Understanding Fatima, Garabandal, And Medjugorje https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/after-the-great-warning-understanding-fatima-garabandal-and-medjugorje-by-a-soul/

To be honest, I should have expected these heightened attacks by satan, as even Jesus and the Blessed Mother had prophesied back on December 30 and 31, 2016, that satan was intending to attack those who had helped elect Donald Trump to the U.S. Presidency (which my blog work had helped support the prayer efforts) and that the year 2017 would not be easy for God’s servants:

Blessed Virgin Mary – “These days Satan is vengeful against all those who prayed Mr. Trump into office” https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/2016/12/30/blessed-virgin-mary-these-days-satan-is-vengeful-against-all-those-who-prayed-mr-trump-into-office/

Message from Our Savior, Jesus Christ – “2017 will not be an easy year for My servants” https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/2017/01/02/message-from-our-savior-jesus-christ-2017-will-not-be-an-easy-year-for-my-servants/

However, I will be very truthful to you, my beloved blog followers, that when it comes to spiritual warfare, that I am very naive. Yes, I have had my share of overt battles with satan, but I do not consider myself to be very experienced in such matters. That is why, I am so looking forward to the upcoming July 13-15, 2018 Healing Conference hosted by the Apostolate of the Green Scapular in Austin, Texas. I am looking forward to learning and growing more in my faith and I want to encourage all those still interested in attending to contact the Apostolate for the few spots still available (https://greenscapular.org).

Meanwhile, last year, during the weekend of August 6, 2017, there was a great prayer event held at Holy Love Ministries. God the Father gave a special message to everyone at a public apparition and it was the first time that His Patriarchal Blessing was given to the crowd. Although I did not attend this event (I live in California so it is hard for me to attend these Holy Love prayer events in Ohio), I benefited greatly due to the prayer efforts that weekend at Holy Love. I say this, because the next day, Monday, August 7, 2017, I felt inspired by the Holy Spirit to write my Appeal to Pope Francis in an effort to save his soul and prevent the further splintering of the Catholic Church.

An Appeal To His Holiness, Pope Francis the First https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/an-appeal-to-his-holiness-pope-francis-the-first/

I wrote this special Appeal to Pope Francis very quickly in one day without any resistance by the evil one and I placed the Appeal publicly on my blog so it could be acted upon after the Great Warning (Illumination of Conscience) takes place. I was actually really surprised that I was able to write it so fast without any evil interference involved and it made me so happy when the next day, Tuesday, August 8, 2017, God the Father said these words at Holy Love:

I am Father God – Patriarch of all nations. The good accomplished this last weekend in the concerted prayer effort could fill volumes if it were recorded. That is why the enemy of your salvation causes so much disturbances before, during and after these events. During these events, his grip on the heart of the world is loosened.”

Thus, I knew that writing my Appeal to Pope Francis had pleased God and I knew that the special prayer efforts that previous weekend at Holy Love had protected me from satan so I could do this work on behalf of Heaven. Praise Be to God!

Meanwhile, as I indicated, this past March 2018, Heaven told me certain prophecies about Pope Francis and the Catholic Church, that I have had to keep private to myself because they are so explosive. But, in the meantime, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, through the visionary, Anne, at Direction For Our Times, Jesus Christ, The Returning King, (http://www.directionforourtimes.com), has started giving public messages again after many years of silence, during Lent 2018, which I shared on this blog, MaryRefugeOfHolyLove. These new locutions from Jesus have asked followers to pray and work for unity in the Catholic Church, especially, under Pope Francis. And because I knew that they would be controversial for followers of this blog, I wrote a special commentary to accompany one of the messages:

Jesus Christ – “Who is driving God’s children from our Church? Ask yourself that question and do not point to the man I have chosen to lead My Church” (along with special commentary by a soul) https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/2018/03/30/jesus-christ-who-is-driving-gods-children-from-our-church-ask-yourself-that-question-and-do-not-point-to-the-man-i-have-chosen-to-lead-my-church/

Compelling Message from Our Lord, Jesus Christ – “I am asking you directly. Will you help Me?” https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/2018/04/06/compelling-message-from-our-lord-jesus-christ-i-am-asking-you-directly-will-you-help-me/

The fact is, my dearly beloved blog followers, if you knew the private prophecies that Heaven shared with me in March 2018, you would all cry. That is why I wrote my special commentary along with the message that Jesus gave at Direction For Our Times, because I know that many of you follow the Book of Truth given to 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, just like I do and believe, and if you could only know how the Crusade Prayers that you all are reciting are working, it would literally make you cry.

The fact is, my beloved blog followers, Jesus and the Blessed Mother have a beautiful Plan set in motion to save the soul of Pope Francis, who is destined to become the false prophet without the Crusade Prayers being recited each day by believers. Oh, my beloved blog followers, the Book of Truth is making a difference and is making an impact in God’s overall Plan for Salvation. Please continue to pray the Crusade Prayers, because Pope Francis and the fate of the Catholic Church really do depend on them.

Oh, my beloved blog followers, satan is so evil. satan really is so truly evil! That is why, my heart has been rent in sadness these past two days in prayer to God.

Why is this? Because even if Pope Francis can be saved from eternal damnation—as I have praying and striving for in my personal efforts—satan has merely changed his plans and I know that the Great Apostasy of the Catholic Church will still happen—although it has been greatly mitigated by prayer efforts by so many people. It is disheartening, because knowing so much of Our Lady’s efforts, due to the free will choices of so many people under the influence of satan over so many years, some events about the future are inevitable. Events that can be mitigated and forestalled, but not totally halted or stopped.

The other day, I read on the website of After the Warning (http://afterthewarning.com), some visions by a faithful Catholic in England who is a victim-soul for Our Lord. I believe that the visions are trustworthy and I am including a part of the visions below while I encourage blog followers to visit the After the Warning website to read the complete series of visions. I am only including the portion of the visions that prompted this commentary by me today.

The fact is, my dearly beloved blog followers, is that satan knows that he can no longer use Pope Francis as his primary instrument to bring about the collapse of the Catholic Church. This is due to the concerted prayer efforts of those who follow the Book of Truth (Maria Divine Mercy), the messages of Holy Love Ministries, and others, etc., such as those who follow this blog, MaryRefugeOfHolyLove. So, now, satan has decided to focus on using another person under his evil influence to bring about the collapse of the Catholic Church and the reign of the anti-christ. So, although Pope Francis may be saved in the end, satan is still finding a way to bring about his totally evil plans to subjugate all of mankind.

So, you see, my beloved blog followers, this is why my heart has been rent for the past two days. satan is truly evil!!

I do not know who this unknown person is—satan’s instrument. However, I do know from a recent message given at Holy Family Refuge (https://www.childrenoftherenewal.com/holyfamilyrefuge), that Our Lord, Jesus Christ, said that 10% of people currently living are the worse evil people on earth and are totally possessed by satan. As I wrote in my special commentary about the antichrist last summer (2017), there exists some people on earth who are so totally evil that they have long passed the point of redemption from Our Lord. The hearts of these people are so totally aligned with evil that no matter how much intervention by Heaven takes place, the hearts of these evil people will never change. My special commentary about the antichrist explains much about this fact by how the “grip of satan” works on the souls of mankind—comparing the grip of satan to how black holes behave in outer space. (I suggest people read the commentary if you would like to learn more).

Jesus Christ – “10% of the people are the worst evil people in the world and totally possessed by satan” https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/2018/03/01/jesus-christ-10-of-the-people-are-the-worst-evil-people-in-the-world-and-totally-possessed-by-satan/

God the Father – “Just as I am calling together My Remnant Faithful, Satan is also forming his remnant” https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/2018/03/05/god-the-father-just-as-i-am-calling-together-my-remnant-faithful-satan-is-also-forming-his-remnant/

Special Commentary – Exposing Satan’s Evil Agenda – Part One – The Antichrist https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/exposing-satans-evil-agenda-part-one-the-antichrist-by-a-soul/

And so, now knowing about this “unknown element”—the change of satan’s plans has been disheartening to me for the past two days, but I remain determined to do all I can for Jesus and the Blessed Mother as I am able to by grace. All Glory to God! Meanwhile, I do not want to end this commentary on this sad note, but I want to be encouraging to you, dear blog followers.

Firstly, for those who might be still interested, I want to encourage you to attend the July 2018 Healing Conference hosted by the Apostolate of Green Scapular, as I believe that there are a few spots still available. Jesus and the Blessed Mother have promised an amazing outpouring of the Holy Spirit on attendees and I am quite excited about it. Although I have received words of prophecy in a limited way, I am hopeful that I will receive a more fuller gift of prophecy through this event, so that I can help people further. Many mystical gifts might be received by attendees on those who have open hearts—it is all dependent on Our Lord’s Divine Will—but I already know that hell is “quaking in fear” at what might happen during the conference and I “expect the unexpected.” Truly, I already know that the healing conference will not be any ordinary Catholic conference that I have attended in the past. So, pray about it, as I think it will be life-changing for many people who attend.

Secondly, if you are able to, please consider attending the Special Apparition of God the Father on Sunday, August 5, 2018, at Holy Love Ministries. God the Father will be imparting His rare Patriarchal Blessing, which He gave last year for the first time to devotees that attended the prayer event. As I indicated, the prayer efforts from last year enabled me to write the Appeal to Pope Francis, which I believe will be instrumental in saving his soul and helping the Blessed Mother in furthering Her Peace Plans among Her children. I do not know what to expect this year, but I do anticipate that there will be a great outpouring of grace from God the Father for all His children. So, please pray about this as well if you are open to attending.

And finally, please pray for me, the success of this blog, MaryRefugeOfHolyLove, and especially, for the intentions of Our Dearly Beloved Blessed Mother. I am so grateful for all those who pray for me—truly, your prayers are true blessings for me—and you and your loved ones are so treasured in my heart. I pray to God that everyone who follows this blog are blessed in many and countless ways, especially, with the gift of true love, hope, and joy, as well as peace within their families and communities.

I love you all. Thank you for simply being a true joy to Jesus’ Heart.
God bless you all!
a soul

Visions to a faithful Catholic in England – May 25, 2018 http://afterthewarning.com/messages-from-heaven/miscellaneous-messages/2018/05/visions-to-a-faithful-catholic-in-england.aspx

Part of the Series of Visions (more on the ‘After the Warning’ website):

Satan’s Strategic Offensive against the Catholic Church.
February 28, 2018 Latin Mass

During mass, I saw Satan’s plan for a ferocious new offensive against the Catholic Church. Pope Francis’ time as Holy Father is coming to an end. Satan’s new offensive against the church will commence under the next Holy Father. Currently serving cardinals and some Jesuits are preparing to elevate a spiritually ‘dark cardinal’ to the Chair of Peter. I do not know the identity of this ‘dark cardinal’ nor do I know if this ‘dark cardinal’ is the anti-christ.

The ‘dark cardinal’ will divide the church by promulgating false doctrines, changing church practices, enforcing acceptance of false doctrines, and persecuting priests and faithful who adhere to the traditions of the faith. In a previous vision, I saw that many clergy and lay people will accept these new doctrines and they will persecute those Catholics who adhere to the traditions of the faith and remain loyal to the true Magisterium of the Catholic Church.

Defenders of the Eucharist.
April 13, 2018 Latin Mass

I looked the altar and saw priests surrounding the altar with their backs to the altar, not in disrespect, but to defend the Eucharist. Adversaries were approaching to destroy the altar and stop priests from offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass I saw a priest disappear and his soul got taken underneath the altar, meaning the priest was martyred defending the mass and the Eucharist.

Next, I saw circles of lay people in layered rings surrounding altar. The lay people were defending the altar and the priests from spiritual and physical attackers. I saw an old man and a teenage girl disappear and their souls go under the altar, meaning they were martyred defending priests, the Holy Sacrifice of the mass, and the Eucharist. The lay people had rallied to become defenders of the Eucharist because they understood that the adversaries wanted to kill or intimidate Catholic priests because only a priest can offer mass and consecrate the Eucharist. Some lay people defended the Eucharist by taking the place of a priest in death and thus they became martyrs and died for the faith.

Jesus Sad.
May 16, 2018 Eucharistic Adoration

I am looking at the monstrance and there are two metal clips holding the Eucharist in place. I see Jesus’ face in the Eucharist and the two clips look like tears running down his cheeks. Jesus is very sad. Jesus wants to explain the cause of his sadness.

Cardinals Expel Christ from Tabernacle.

I then saw a shoe at the end of a red colored trouser leg. The foot kicked Jesus out of a tabernacle! The symbolism means that Cardinals in the Catholic Church are kicking Jesus out of the tabernacle by altering the mass so the consecration does not occur. This causes Jesus much pain and suffering.

Anti-Christ Welcomed.

Next I see that in the dark vacuum created in the wake of Jesus’ expulsion from the tabernacle, the anti-Christ rises and is welcomed. I do not see the anti-christ or know his identity.

God the Father – “The secrets of My Heart will pour out upon all people and all nations – What has been prophesied will come to pass”

Holy Love Ministry

June 5, 2018

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 the Alpha and the Omega. My Seal of Truth is upon this generation. The secrets of My Heart will pour out upon all people and all nations. What has been prophesied will come to pass. Do not seek your pleasures in the world. Turn with love towards Me.”

“I am the Guardian of your moment-to-moment choices. I stand watch over you through My Commandments. These are your strength in an age of darkness. Fiercely guard the Truth. The Truth is encapsulated in My Commandments. Train your hearts in this Truth.”

“I cannot change your erroneous free-will choices. I can change the outcome of your mistakes, however. Therefore, do not lose hope, but have recourse to Me through prayer. Find the way to My Heart through obedience to My Commandments.”

Read Baruch 2:27-32+

“‘Yet thou hast dealt with us, O Lord our God, in all your kindness and in all your great compassion, as you spoke by your servant Moses on the day when you commanded him to write your law in the presence of the people of Israel, saying, “If you will not obey my voice, this very great multitude will surely turn into a small number among the nations, where I will scatter them. For I know that they will not obey me, for they are a stiff-necked people. But in the land of their exile they will come to themselves, and they will know that I am the Lord their God. I will give them a heart that obeys and ears that hear; and they will praise me in the land of their exile, and will remember my name.”

MESSAGE FROM OUR SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST
“IF MY BELOVED CHILDREN WOULD BEGIN PRAYING VERY HARD FOR THE LEADERS OF OTHER NATIONS TO COME AND SPEAK WITH YOUR PRESIDENT, THEY WOULD FIND HOPE AND BLESSINGS IN THEIR OWN COUNTRIES”
THURSDAY, MAY 24, 2018 AT 1:36 PM

NOTE: If you are interested in attending the July 13-15th healing conference in Austin, TX, you can still register. Please see the homepage for the Apostolate of the Green Scapular for more details. I, “a soul“, will be attending: http://www.greenscapular.org

Anna Marie: My Lord, I hear you calling me. My Lord, are you Father, Son or Holy Spirit?

JESUS: My beloved, it is I, your Lord God and Savior, Jesus of Nazareth.

Anna Marie: Yes my beloved Jesus. My Lord may I ask please, will you bow down and adore God your Eternal Father who is the Alpha and Omega, the Creator of all life, of all that is visible and invisible?

JESUS: Yes my little one, I your Divine Savior Jesus will now and will always bow down and adore my Holy Eternal Merciful Father, Who is the Alpha and Omega, the Creator of all life, of all that is visible and invisible.

Anna Marie: Please speak my Holy Lord Jesus, for your sinful servant is now listening.

JESUS: My dear one, I see you are working hard on your presentation for the Healing Conference. This is what is needed. I am guiding you to prepare all that is necessary for the education and healing of my beloved children. I want them to understand fully the many areas of demonic assaults they are now experiencing in their lives. If so many of my children had not departed from me and followed the path of destruction and damnation, my willing and loving servants would not be required to suffer as they do now. Those who do suffer so greatly are my precious victim souls.

Anna Marie: Yes Jesus.

JESUS: My dear one, please keep up with your daily prayers and add more prayers. The events in the very near future between your government and others will not be good. Prayer can still help, but it becomes more doubtful that peace talks and actions will take place with the North Korean leader because his sins are so great and he refuses to hear my Voice of reason.

Anna Marie: Yes Jesus.

JESUS: If my beloved children would begin praying very hard for the leaders of other nations to come and speak with your President, they would find hope and blessings in their own countries.

Anna Marie: Yes Jesus.

JESUS: My dear one, please ask my little ones, my chosen Apostles, to pray diligently day and night that these leaders will find common ground for the healing of their nations. It is not to late to make a significant difference. I am tasking you with this announcement dear one.

Anna Marie: Yes my Lord, I will do all you ask my Lord God and Savior.

JESUS: That is all little one.

Anna Marie: Thank you Jesus for coming and speaking. Jesus, all Apostles around the world love you.

JESUS: Please let my beloveds know I love them too and I am always with them.

Anna Marie: Yes Jesus, I will.

Feast of Mary, Refuge of Holy Love – 21st Anniversary

Our Lady comes as Refuge of Holy Love. She says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“The Son has named My Heart as a Holy Refuge. A refuge is a shelter away from danger. So, it is, souls are meant to come to My Immaculate Heart and draw from it all the grace they need to live in and to be Holy Love. Success in this depends upon your trustful surrender.”

Feast of Mary, Refuge of Holy Love – 21st Anniversary

Our Lady comes as Refuge of Holy Love. She says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“I desire with every fiber of My being that all of My children learn of this title – ‘Refuge of Holy Love’. It is strength in the face of battle. Satan flees before this title. It gives the soul clarity of purpose and a strong sense of good versus evil. I will refuse no one their chance to petition My Heart under this title. None will be left unaided. My special attention rests upon those devoted to Me as Refuge of Holy Love.”

“My Heart is the hope of the future. Herein lies the key to peace in hearts and in the world. If only all hearts would seek out Holy Love, every problem would dissolve in your midst. Today, My prayer is that more listen and accept the Truth I am giving you. Let it be a Call heard around the world. Live in Holy Love.”

“Dear children, all that my Son, who is the light of love, has done and does, He has done out of love. Also you, my children, when you live in love and love your neighbors, you are doing the will of my Son. Apostles of my love, make yourselves little; open your pure hearts to my Son so that He can work through you. With the help of faith, be filled with love. But, my children, do not forget that the Eucharist is the heart of faith. This is my Son who feeds you with His Body and strengthens you with His Blood. This is a miracle of love: my Son who always comes anew, alive, to bring life back to souls. My children, by living in love you are doing the will of my Son and He lives in you. My children, my motherly desire is for you to always love Him more, because He is calling you with His love. He is giving you love so that you may spread it to all those around you. As a mother, through His love, I am with you to speak the words of love and hope to you-to speak to you the eternal words that are victorious over time and death-so as to call you to be my apostles of love. Thank you.”

“I come to you this evening to ask My children to be compatible with the Church’s teaching on the Holy Father’s infallibility; My Son’s Real Presence in the Holy Eucharist; and My Own role in the Church. These are the areas the enemy favors to attack. Do not be deceived into thinking you can pick and choose which doctrine you believe.”

“Jesus asks that you offer all your communions during the month of the Precious Blood, the month of July, for lukewarm priests. That they will return to belief in the Real Presence of My Son in the Sacrament of the Altar.”

Our Lady now says:

“Ask people to extend towards Heaven the objects they wish Me to kiss.”

She says:

“Thank you, My dear little children, for coming in faith, hope and love. Today, I extend to you once again, My Motherly Blessing. And I desire that you use these objects, which I have personally kissed through the angels, to bring souls to Holy Love.”

“Dear children, this Ministry will undergo further persecution in the future, but you will endure through the grace of My Heart. Jesus in His Majesty and Mercy will extend yet another grace to bring souls into Holy Love. For when the great illumination of consciences comes in the future, souls will also see that Holy Love is the path, salvation and refuge. It is at that time, many will come to My apparition site. Dear children, continue to pray from the heart, that My messages of Holy Love are propagated throughout the world, and I am blessing you.”

Compelling Message from Our Lord, Jesus Christ – “I am asking you directly. Will you help Me?”

JESUS

“I am looking at mankind with eyes of hope. Who will help me? That is the question that I ask in every time. I search tirelessly for people who recognise My call to holiness. There are those who serve the Church, but they forget that the call to holiness comes before the call to preach the Gospel message. Who will help me? I ask that question and look for those who are working to become holier each day. Without a commitment to personal holiness, a person’s ability to impact others decreases. The Gospel message is compelling. It is timeless. It is full of love and hope. But, my beloved friends, when people relax their efforts to become holier, they lose the force needed to convict others. You may believe that My call is unfair, given its requirement of personal sacrifice. You may believe that the cost is too high for you to pay. To remain faithful to Me, you must sometimes put yourself and your personal plans in the second place and My plan in the first place. You are no different than any other follower in any other time. On earth, I put My father’s plan before My own desires. Would I have asked for a different experience for My mother? Can you imagine that I wanted her to suffer? I did not want her to suffer, anything, ever. She was the greatest joy of My life. But I subordinated my human wishes for her to the eternal plan of the Father and she wanted this for Me. She wanted the Father’s will for her life and for mine, too. Do you understand? We were both willing to sacrifice what was temporary for what was eternal. You must be willing to do so, too. I did not suffer alone in the sense that she accompanied Me to My death. You do not suffer alone, either, in the sense that we are with you. Our mother, Mary, wishes to assert her feminine strength in this time. She looks at mankind with eyes of hope, too. Who will help her? Who will help Me? This is the question we ask of you. Do not count personal cost, My friends, because you will be rewarded far beyond your ability to give. We reward you in sublime ways. I have great hope for mankind and part of that hope must be realised through My Church. Will you help me to establish and maintain unity in the Church? Will you be a person who follows in My footsteps? With humility? Will you trust Me to protect the Church and her earthly mission? I am asking you directly. Will you help Me?”

LOCUTIONS TO THE WORLD

November 13, 2014
Overcoming the Darkness

MARY

These events will come forth because human history moves on, bringing forth what has been imbedded in its past. I have tried to describe those forces that have been placed in the stream, waiting beneath the surface and ready to come forth. Now, I must move on to my Church and to describe its life. I will speak of what is hidden and often overlooked.

Many lay people take their Baptism very seriously. They offer their help at the parishes, attend its services and keep their hearts loyal. They are faithful Catholics and even though there have been many scandals, they do not allow them to shake their faith.

They have received a Catholic heritage and they want to pass this on to their children and grandchildren. They have never given up the dreams placed in their hearts from the beginning. They have always believed in the Church. Even when the scandals came, they held on in the darkness and continued to serve and to believe.

Their numbers are much larger than the public perception. These Catholic will be my foundation. In so many ways, they have come through the darkness. They have believed when the darkness of events covered over their churches. Now, I am ready to use them. To these I will speak now.

November 14, 2014
New Gifts for Faithful People

MARY

How flourishing my Church was, so many vocations and so many faithful laity. All were gathered around me and my name was on their lips. Now, the flourishing harvest of vocations has become just a handful and many laity have walked away from their faith. This is what catches the eyes of most.

But, look! How many are still in the fields, laboring to bring forth good fruit. How many still cherish the sacraments and the Catholic devotions. Even among the young, the gift of faith flourishes in many hearts. This is where I will begin. They need only a light, a signal of hope, a direction, a new voice, clear and true, to inspire their hearts. This is why I speak.

To you who labor in the fields, who have always sought to preserve the faith in your homes and in your parishes, I know your travail. I know your sadness that many do not respond, even the members of your family. I know the darkness that you have been through, not just the personal darkness but your dismay at all that has happened to a once glorious Church. Do not say that the Church is in ruins and decay. Within the Church is much hidden life, many people doing all that they can to preserve and pass on the ancient faith that is always new.

To you, I will speak. Read these words carefully. They will be your guide. I know the labor of your hearts and all the efforts you have made. None of them is lost, even when your words and your deeds seemingly had no effect.

Now, I call you in a different direction. Before you continue on, come into my heart. Find the new gifts that await you. Should not you, who have been faithful to my Church, be the first ones to discover the new gifts of my heart.

November 15, 2014
The Beginning Gifts

MARY

With the many new blessings flowing from my heart should not these faithful Catholics be the first ones to know and to receive. They already attend mass and call upon my name. They have not abandoned their religious practices, even though others have walked away. They are confused by all that is happening in the world but the light of faith and practice still burns within their hearts. They will be the first group to receive, the first ones to experience the outpouring of my heart. To them, I speak now.

When I come to you, when I offer you my new gifts, open wide your hearts. I am preparing you.

You need these new gifts. They will begin with an invitation, an opportunity to attend a gathering, to read a book or to join a group. Do not set this invitation aside. It is an invitation to a new way of life, to join with others on the road.

Others will not yet have this opportunity. These, too, I will prepare by special private graces. Everything that bears my name – the churches, the books, the traditional devotions will gain a hold upon you. You will find new attractions. Whatever carries my name will draw you, without any personal effort, into its power.

These are the beginning gift. For those who accept these invitations, greater, more powerful and more lasting gifts await. All is needed to prepare for the darkness.

November 16, 2014
Light for Devout Catholics

MARY

When all of the events begin, devout Catholics are the ones who will be bathed in my light. I must speak about this light. When darkness comes and the usual lights go out, emergency lights come on to provide safety. They do not give the fullness of light but they are sufficient to protect and sustain life.

Such are my special lights which flow from my heart and which I want to give to all. However, devout Catholics who have held fast to their faith in the midst of all that has happened will be the first to receive. Then, the graces will go forth to others. None of my lights are limited, but devout Catholics are better prepared to receive than others.

I speak now so that as these lights go forth, devout Catholics do not miss their opportunity.

You must not think, “I have enough light. I am not walking in darkness”. Certainly, you are not in darkness, but the darkness will come, and then you desperately need the light that I am now offering to you. How does this new light come? I will teach you.

Be attentive. Be sensitive to devotions, new and old, that would lead you to me. I will place new attractions in your hearts. Those who were always devoted to me will find a hunger and thirst for my devotions. Those who never experienced any particular attraction will realize that a new flame has been put in their heart.

Realize what I am doing. I am taking your faith, which still burns within you, and I am giving you fresh oil for your lamps. In this way, you will have the new light that will not go out in the darkness.

November 17, 2014
Entering Mary’s Heart

MARY

The life that I will offer to these Catholics is so new that many will find it difficult to believe. They will ask, “How can this be”? Then they will see for themselves that I am pouring forth a special fire which offers helps that have never been given before.

All of these new graces are so needed because of the new problems that will suddenly arise on the earth, for which there will be no apparent solutions. My response will be taking place within the hearts of those who receive.

A new power will be released from my heart to their hearts. All will know that I have embraced them and drawn them into my heart where they are safe, even though the external turmoil increases.

I have spoken before of this invitation. My heart is like Noah’s ark, but this time, the numbers are not limited. All can enter. There is plenty of space for the whole world. I must begin to teach everyone how they can enter. No one must delay. The door will remain open until the last minute but the earlier you enter, the deeper will be the protection.

My heart has many doors, accommodated to everyone’s situation and way of life. All will be able to enter.

November 18, 2014
Preparing for Mary’s Fire

MARY

I must make these new gifts which are easily available and tell the whole world how they are received. They are inner gifts, received into a heart that has been purified and is seeking my help.

The first gift begins as a new stirring, like a lonely but attractive voice that says, “Come with me. Come in this new direction. Leave behind what is familiar and be drawn into a life that feeds your spirit.”

This voice will invite you to leave behind everything that soils your heart and to be generous in the things of God. The voice will point out much that must be changed. Be generous. Do not resist. All of this is the needed purifying action of the Holy Spirit.

The voice will lead you into a new style of life, with new priorities. The old will be set aside, even those attractions that were not sinful but still claimed your heart. The goal is to set you free so your spirit can respond and receive.

The voice will lead you into new waters, gentle and peaceful. You will find rest and a new kind of happiness, a contentment with what you have and a spirit of thanksgiving to God for all that he saved you from.

At this point, you are ready for the fire that comes from my heart and which I want to pour forth over the whole world. It is so easy. As your spirit seeks heavenly graces, ask specifically for my fire to be given and you will receive it. Ask time and again, “O Mary, please give me your fire”. My heart will break open and the fire will pour forth.

November 19, 2014
Preparing for the Consecration of Russia

MARY

The fullness of my gifts will only flow as mankind falls deeper and deeper into darkness.

This will happen as the events, coordinated by Satan, unfold. At that time, a hopelessness and feeling of inevitability will come upon the human race. As Satan cleverly unfolds one part at a time, people will realize what has happened. The important events of the past led to these troubles. Mankind will see itself as cornered, with its back to the wall.

Only after these events begin, will the Church realize the great power that has been given at Fatima. At last, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia, together with all of the bishops.

New lights and new hope will be released, the deepest gifts of my Immaculate Heart.

The world will not return to the way it was. Some parts will have already collapsed and many places will have been destroyed, but new life will be offered to all. This is why I must speak and explain my gifts so all can receive. Right now, I am pouring out preparatory gifts, new attractions to greater devotion. They must be received so each soul is more ready for the great gifts that will pour out after Russia is consecrated.

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 the Eternal Now. I come, once again, to establish a covenant of Truth between the heart of the world and My Own Paternal Heart. Respond to Me as children to a loving Father. You are as close to Me as you are close to My Son’s Real Presence. Pray for deep faith and you will receive hope and love.”

“Dear children! I am calling you to be with me in prayer in this time of grace when darkness is fighting against the light. Pray, little children, confess and begin a new life in grace. Decide for God and He will lead you towards holiness; and the cross will be a sign of victory and hope for you. Be proud that you are baptized and grateful in your heart that you are a part of God’s plan. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

JESUS

“When we gaze into a still lake, we can see our own reflection. I am that way, too. When you gaze at My figure on the cross, you see Me, and My love for you, but you also come to see yourself reflected back. Spending time with Me acts as a mirror and you begin to understand yourself better. Why is this important? Because when you understand my physical brokenness on the cross and feel compassion for Me, you come to understand your own brokenness and feel compassion for yourself. I want this for you. I want you to be loving toward yourself and understanding and compassionate. When you accept that I submitted to a plan that was bigger than one day, you can learn that your difficult days, also contribute to a greater plan than you can see in one moment. You can learn to trust in God’s outcomes, even when your life seems full of pain and suffering and uncertainty. God’s outcomes are so full of love and truth that any suffering is quickly obscured. When you can see the value in suffering, it becomes easy to bear, such as physical labour for a physical goal. ‘It is worth it’ one thinks to one’s self. When you can see no value to suffering, such as in the case when innocence is offended and injured, there is a great need to trust in the certainty that the Father will bring both healing and justice. This need is the difference between peace and often grave disturbance and even torment. The Father wills recovery for all. Recovery is available and it is a certainty in the heavenly kingdom. But often, through prayer, recovery comes on earth and any suffering you endure contributes to enormous development. I want this for you. I want you to benefit from any cross you have carried. I want you to know that I am with you in any cross you carry today. I will lead you to the answers just as the Father led me through My life. I have the answers for you.

In a human relationship, imperfection is expected and negotiated. Can you accept that in our relationship, which is unrepeatable, there will also be times when you feel good about us and times when you are unsure of us? My beloved friend, put your trust in Me and you will not be disappointed. Our relationship moves through these periods as you develop. I do not change. In all relationships there must be humility and constancy. In our relationship, this is necessary, too. Come to me in prayer, in trust and in hope, regardless of how you feel. In those prayer times when you feel less, you are gaining more, believe Me, please. Relationships must advance and grow and that is what happens in your relationship with Me, which is very real, as you will know when you finish your time on earth. For now, look for signs that I am with you. Look for Me in your day and assume I am there. When you look with the eyes of faith, you will see Me in many moments, through people and circumstances. In your greatest suffering, you will see glimpses of My presence. When you see these glimpses of Me, great and small, remember that you are loved and that you are full of potential for greatness. I did a big thing when I gave my human life for you. I did this so that you could do small things each day, with great hope, confident that the small things you do contribute to My Kingdom remaining present on earth and growing. Know that you are important to Me, today and every day, first because you are loved and secondly because you are needed.”

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

“Nothing I say to you today or any other day can change the course the world is following now. I speak to you of peace, but peace must be in hearts before it can be in the world. You will not have peace so long as self-interest rules hearts. Your hope is in love of Me and your neighbor. I remind you that your neighbor is new life in the womb, as well as, any other person I place in your life. Respect this.”

“When you work to please others in thought, word and deed, you are strengthening peace in the world. All individual efforts strengthen the whole.”

“Allow My Words to you today to inspire peace in your hearts.”

Read Ephesians 4:1-6+

I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, beg you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all lowliness and meekness, with patience, forbearing one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of us all, who is above all and through all and in all.

Message To Mirjana on the Day for Non-Believers

“Dear children, great are the works that the Heavenly Father has done in me, as He does in all those who love Him tenderly and who faithfully and devoutly serve Him. My children, the Heavenly Father loves you, and it is through His love that I am here with you. He is speaking to you. Why do you not desire to see the signs? Everything is easier alongside Him. Also pain lived with Him is easier because faith exists. Faith helps in the pain, and pain without faith leads to despair. Pain lived and offered to God raises up. Did my Son not redeem the world through His painful sacrifice? As His mother I was with Him in the pain and suffering, as I am with all of you. My children, I am with you in life, in suffering, in pain, in joy and in love. Therefore, have hope. It is hope that makes you comprehend that life is there. My children, I am speaking to you, my voice is speaking to your soul, my heart is speaking to your heart. Oh, apostles of my love, how much my motherly heart loves you. How many things I desire to teach you. How my motherly heart desires that you be complete, and you can be complete only when your soul, body and love are united within you. I implore you as my children, pray much for the Church and her servants – your shepherds; that the Church may be such as my Son desires – clear as spring water and full of love. Thank you.”

Our Lady of Light

My son,

I come to you today with a message of optimism and hope for the people of the United States of America. Many of you view your world as in dire straits, particularly those of you who have recognized the darkness in the affairs of your government, your institutions, and your places of learning, and you have seen how the darkness of the evil one has been infiltrating your institutions for many decades now.

But now you can see that the Light of the Father in Heaven, through the intercession of His Son, is beginning to influence the affairs of your country, because the Father in Heaven has chosen to intercede in these End Times of darkness to influence the affairs of mankind for the better in preparation for the coming events that will see you through a great transition from the evil that has dominated your governments, not just in the United States of America, but in all countries throughout the world.

For it has been the plan of the evil one to use his minions here on Earth to control the affairs of all mankind to create a draconian and evil one world order that would eventually mean the complete enslavement of humanity to the evil one and his minions.

The Father in Heaven through the Redeemer has chosen many among you to reverse the tide of this evil, for the Father in Heaven has great mercy for his children, and he recognizes that many of you have been deceived by the evil one and his minions to believe that good is evil, and evil is good, so twisted have the affairs of mankind become under the influence of the evil one.

But now you can see that there are glimmers of light that are cause for you to look forward in these times with optimism and hope that the evil one and his minions will be defeated.

The greatest success of the evil one to date has been his ability to divide the people among themselves with conflicting beliefs, ideas, and philosophies with the goal of creating chaos and confusion among the people which would, if left unchecked, lead to world chaos and confusion, resulting in great violence to humanity and destruction to the world in which you live.

Do not be confused by the choice of your leaders who are inspired to lead you out of the bondages of the evil one, for no man or woman chosen to lead in these times is without faults and weaknesses, as you know individually deep within you that you are also a sinner and easily tempted to fall into sin.

So do not lose respect for or denigrate your leaders who are showing the right way to follow the Redeemer’s direction, but who are also too human or frail in other ways that show they are simply human.

You must pray for your leaders who you discern to be on the right path that the Lord has chosen for your country, as well as to pray for the leaders of all countries throughout the world.

These are the times when great changes will take place in all countries, both geopolitical and geophysical, for it is so written in the scriptures that you are now fully in the End Times.

The Father in Heaven shall prevail in His plan for humanity through the implementation of His plan through the Redeemer, My Son here on Earth, Jesus Christ, and the Father’s Son in the Heavenly Realms, who is making all things new on the face of the Earth.

Thanks be to God!

God the Father – “Satan’s way of unsettling you is to destroy your hope in the future – Hope is trust in My Will”

January 31, 2018

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 the Creator – Father of all Ages. I tell you, the key to mankind’s peace is trust in Me and My Dominion over him. The more perfect the trust – the more perfect the peace in man’s heart.”

“Satan’s way of unsettling you is to destroy your hope in the future. Hope is trust in My Will. Man cannot understand or accept My Will outside of hope. Therefore, understand that discouragement is the handiwork of Satan. Never surrender to it!”

“Trust in My Dominion over you in every present moment.”

Read 1 John 3:3

And every one who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.

(Feast of Our Lady of Prompt Succor, January 15, 2018)

In 2003, I returned to Holy Mother Church through a powerful conversion experience made possible by Our Blessed Mother. And during that time, I was asking for help from two great Saints whom I admired to overcome several sinful habits and tendencies that I had. Well, when a relative of mine heard about this, she told me, “oh, no, you can only pray to one Saint at a time.” And when she said this to me, it made me very concerned, as I thought that I had offended the Saints that I was invoking. However, I did not understand why if we could pray to all Saints through prayers like the Litany of the Saints, we were limited to only praying to the Blessed Mother or one Saint at a time for a particular need. I became very confused about this for awhile. Years later, I know better.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I am going to say something that might sound “radical” to your ears, but this truth will give you much freedom in knowing. Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, unless you are praying to a particularly holy person for a miracle in order to have them canonized, all people should be praying to multiple Saints for intercessory help. You are free to ask as many Saints in prayer for help and you are not limited to solely the Blessed Mother or one Patron Saint. No, you are not offending any Saint by asking for multiple intercessors and no, you are not limiting somehow God’s Divine Power in granting your petition by asking more than one Saint for help.

Currently, there are four Church-recognized Patron Saints for Lost (Impossible) Causes. They are St. Jude Thaddeus, St. Rita, St. Philomena, and St. Gregory the Wonderworker. So, if you have an impossible situation and thought you could only invoke St. Jude for help, I am here with good news for you. Yes, you can pray to all four Patron Saints at the same time and no, you are not limiting God’s Mercy and His Grace towards you and your cause. And yes, you can add additional Saints, too, for help. It will only benefit you to do so!

Do not think that you can ask the intercessory help of everyone you know on earth and yet, you are limited to one Saint in Heaven! Storm Heaven, friends, storm Heaven for your cause!

There is only one person who does not want you to ask any Saints for help and well, he is mean, ugly, and his opinion does not count! Storm Heaven, friends!

Heaven is all about teamwork when it comes to prayer. “Anne,” the visionary of Direction For Our Times, Jesus Christ, The Returning King (http://www.directionforourtimes.com), was privileged to be granted several visits to Heaven by Our Lord. And she recorded these visits in a few of her books, which I have read and learned much from. During one experience, Anne saw St. Clare of Assisi giving a lecture to a group of fellow Franciscans. And when Anne saw this large group, she suddenly felt unworthy as a child of God being there. Well, St. Clare then stopped her lecture and asked that everyone gather around and pray for Anne and her mission. And Anne was lifted up in prayer and felt much better by the experience.

I am not sure if it was St. Clare of Assisi or another heavenly soul who revealed this fact, but in Heaven, whenever a petition is coming from earth, the Saints will ask other Saints and heavenly souls for help in praying for the petition. For example, if a Saint is being asked to help to overcome a sin by someone on earth, that Saint will ask other heavenly souls who had faced that similar challenge on earth, because they know intimately about the struggle over that sin. So, the Saints never pray solely by themselves for any petition. They take their tasks seriously and always ask for intercessory prayer from other heavenly souls, like St. Clare did for Anne’s discomfort. They are always seeking the best outcome for every person’s petition, which involves asking others for help, too.

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, if a Patron Saint, like St. Clare of Assisi is not afraid of asking for help from other heavenly souls, neither should we be afraid of asking as many Saints as possible to help us with our individual needs. The Communion of Saints is all about teamwork, both on earth and in Heaven. These are higher truths.

I will tell you all a story. One time, I was looking for a prayer group to belong to. However, I was having difficulty, because all of my parish prayer groups met during the daytime and I worked full-time, so I could never attend. Then, I tried to form my own prayer group, but it never worked out. Saddened about this situation for a longtime, suddenly, I had an inspirational thought. I thought to myself, well, if I cannot find a prayer group to belong to on earth, I will form my own prayer group in Heaven. So, that is what I did. So, I asked in prayer, five Saints that I felt particularly close to, to be my Patron prayer group. And this made me quite happy finally having a prayer group that I could belong to, which I often asked for their help.

Now, something happens when you ask Saints in Heaven to be your Patron prayer group. Other Saints find out about it and want to join, too! The thing is, as I would read and learn more about various Saints, I kept “falling in love” with their stories. Then, I would develop a fondness for him or her and would ask the Saint to be a member of my Patron prayer group.

Well, this fondness of mine kept happening, until finally, I started to lose track of all their names! (Yes, I never thought of writing them down). Then, one day, the Holy Spirit made me realize that everyone wanted to join my Patron prayer group. So, I got down on my knees and asked every Saint—both known and unknown—in Heaven to be my Patron Saint, to which this petition was answered as a resounding “yes” by everyone.

From this experience, I realized that there is no limit to love. God just kept expanding my heart with more and more love until I was “carrying” all the love for all the Saints. I was so shocked—I went from having no prayer group on earth to having all of Heaven as my Patron Saints. God Is Truly Amazing.

Everybody needs to have their own Patron prayer group—their own cheer-leading group in Heaven. Several Saints that they can regularly go to and ask for daily help. I cannot promise you that you will end up with all of Heaven belonging to your prayer group, but I do recommend that you write down their names so you do not lost track of them! (Or, you will become embarrassed like me forgetting people).

Another higher truth that people should know is that it is alright to pray to other people’s guardian angels. Many people, if they remember, pray to their guardian angel for help. But, very few people know that you can pray to the guardian angel of others if you feel it is needed. For example, many people pray to God and the Blessed Mother for the conversion of their children and family members. People should include the guardian angels of their children and family members, too, in their petitions. Whenever I am praying generally for the world—for example, the conversion of the heart of the world, I always include the Blessed Mother and all the guardian angels of the world in my prayers. The guardian angels get invoked so rarely by people, yet, they are the most powerful of intercessors for their charges, who they are totally devoted to. So, I suggest that whenever you pray for someone, you should include their guardian angel on the petition. It only helps.

I do not recall if I learned this fact from my study of the heavenly messages at Holy Love Ministries (http://www.holylove.org), or by study of other visionaries’ messages, etc., but I will reveal another higher truth that most people do not realize. The Blessed Mother is involved with every prayer petition that comes to Heaven. Whether the prayer petition comes via intercession of a Saint or the person is praying directly to Jesus, the Blessed Mother is always involved in every prayer and sacrifice.

So, for many protestant Christians, they will be very surprised to learn that the Blessed Mother is always praying with them when they thought they were only conversing with Our Lord. And many Catholic Christians will be surprised to know that when they thought they were only praying to St. Jude or St. Philomena, etc., they were also praying to the Blessed Mother every time.

The fact is Our Blessed Mother is Our Advocate before Our Heavenly Father. Every prayer petition is passed through the Immaculate Heart of Our Blessed Mother for blessing before it is placed on the Altar of the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord. Then, Jesus presents the petition before Our Heavenly Father and Papa then converts the prayer into heavenly grace. This grace then returns through the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord passing through the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Mother, Who then as Our Mediatrix of All Grace, dispenses the grace to the designated recipient of the prayer petition and sacrifice. And if a Saint was an original intercessor of the petition, the grace will also pass through the heart of the named Saint for blessing before reaching earth.

Yes, the Blessed Mother has Her Hand in every prayer petition. It is through the Immaculate Heart that every prayer petition is refined and enhanced in power before it goes before God’s Heart. Now, oftentimes, people will pray for things that are not good for them or not in keeping with the Divine Will or Divine Plan. That is alright, as the prayer petition gets “purified” and “perfected” in the Immaculate Heart of Our Blessed Mother. Our Lady will add her “motherly touch” to every prayer petition, making it acceptable to God. So, no prayer is ever wasted by Heaven. God will always send grace back into the world, although the prayer petition may not be answered in the way that the person originally asked for.

Now, what do I mean by every prayer gets “enhanced in power” in the Immaculate Heart? The fact is not every prayer and sacrifice merits the same amount of grace. Every prayer and sacrifice is carried by angels to Heaven on the wings of hope, faith and holy love wrapped in the blanket of trust—all dependent on the holiness of the person who prays the petition along with earthly intercessors. Then, in the Immaculate Heart, Our Lady matches the petition’s depth of hope, faith, holy love, and trust, with Her “motherly touch” before it presented to Our Heavenly Father for His Gift of Grace.

However, some prayer petitions and sacrifices are deeply steeped in hope, faith, holy love, and trust—being very meritorious in the Eyes of God. Our Lady is able to not only simply match the holiness of the petition, but is also able to magnify its power. The depth of hope, faith, holy love, and trust then becomes a multiplying factor, resulting in grace being multiplied many times over. That is why Our Lord has said a few times at Holy Love Ministries that one “Hail Mary” prayer “recited with a loving heart… brings with it the power to convert a soul, to stop a war, to deliver a soul from purgatory, even to change the future of the world.” That is why Our Lord has said that the best prayer petition are not simply ones that receive grace, but actually “win” graces for others.

During the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election season, God and Our Lady revealed many important heavenly realities and higher truths through messages given at Holy Family Refuge (https://www.childrenoftherenewal.com/holyfamilyrefuge). Jesus revealed that Donald Trump was able to win the U.S. Presidency, because Our Lord was able to multiply the graces from prayers many times over on the day of the election. Jesus also revealed that He has been “storing up” graces for our particular generation who will live through the Great Tribulation and reign of the antichrist.

That is why Saints such as Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres (Our Lady of Good Success), Blessed Anna Maria Taigi, St. Anne Catherine Emmerich, St. Padre Pio, and others, were given prophetic visions of our particular time and were asked by Our Lord if they would offer up their prayers and sufferings for our generation. God so loved His beloved children of this “lost generation” that He has been storing up graces throughout the centuries for this particular time when graces would be in such a huge deficit.

Our Lady also revealed some interesting facts at Holy Family Refuge and Locutions To The World. Unlike God Who saves up graces wisely using them when needed, satan runs on nearly bankrupt powers. As soon as satan receives demonic powers from sin, he spends it. And because of his pride, he often makes foolish mistakes.

Recently, at Holy Love Ministries, God the Father said, “I can fill the atmosphere with My Grace, but man must choose to respond wisely to it.” And in another message, God the Father said, “satan attacks hearts as he knows hearts are his last battleground.” Both these statements are true. Let me explain.

Grace is very similar in behavior to light, which acts both as a particle and a wave. The atmosphere (and indeed the entire universe) is filled with God and His Presence found in His Grace. This is similar to how light fills the atmosphere and the universe. Also, similar to how one cannot observe a light beam directly, but a person can see the effect of the light through visible colors of objects surrounding them; likewise, with grace, one cannot observe it directly, but we can see its effects all-around us with all of Creation responding positively to God’s Grace.

As Mediatrix of All Grace, the Hands of the Blessed Mother act as a prism refracting the grace from Our Heavenly Father and surrounding us into the particular spiritual helps needed by the recipient. Then, like a funnel, the “beams of grace” are further amplified by intercessor Saints before they are finally received by the recipient on earth. Grace is first received on hearts that are open and willing to be blessed. Grace is also received upon the person’s body if they need healing and the surrounding environment. It is all dependent on the requests in the prayer petition on how grace will manifest in the person’s life according to the Divine Will.

Now, as I indicated, grace is always received first in a person’s (spiritual) heart. That is why satan’s last and first battleground is a person’s heart. If he can inspire evil at its inception—a person’s heart—then he knows that he can win the battle for the person’s soul. satan is constantly working to “choke” out the grace that God and Our Lady are constantly flooding hearts with from Heaven. That is why it is so important for people to pray constantly and consistently for the salvation of those whom they care about and love, as well as generally, for all living souls. It enables God and Our Lady to send more grace to compensate, as well as special graces to counter-attack satan, in every present moment. It is a constant battle over each heart that Heaven and hell are waging every moment over the salvation of souls.

And so, having revealed all these higher truths, how pleasing it must be to Jesus and Our Heavenly Father if we acknowledge Our Blessed Mother’s Great Role in every one of our prayers. Just as Jesus in His Great Humility becomes Our Prisoner of Love in the Tabernacle 24-hours a day as simple bread and wine; Our Blessed Mother is so humble doing so much out of love for Her children who often fail to simply acknowledge Her help in their prayers. Twin Loves of Profound Humility.

Lord, have Mercy on me, a sinner!

Many blessings to everyone who reads this commentary! May you be blessed with a deeper love of God, Our Blessed Mother, the Angels and Saints!

I love you.

I have come – Jesus, the Word born Incarnate.”

I wish to reveal to you the depth of the United Hearts Revelation. As My Mother’s Heart is the Refuge of Holy Love, so My Own Sacred Heart is the Kingdom of Divine Love. Thus, the United Hearts represent both Refuge and Kingdom – security in tribulation and victory over evil. We are united. We share everything. She is always in Me. I am always in Her – spiritually and emotionally.”

Therefore, see that when you petition the Heart of My Blessed Mother, the petition goes into My Heart as well. Further, when you pray directly to Me, She is praying for you also. When My Mother’s Heart is sorrowing, I too sorrow. When the Immaculate Heart holds joy, I too am joyful. We share the same emotions. While I am Godhead present in the tabernacles of the world, My Mother stands beside the tabernacle consoling Me. While She draws souls into the confessional, I am in the confessional waiting to forgive. Thus, We have always shared.”

I have come to you today as your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

I wish today to teach you about prayer. Prayer is a refuge or weapon and a means of unification – creature to Creator. The more the soul surrenders his own will to the Will of God, the deeper his union through prayer.”

Surrender then your plans, your choices, your desires. No good comes to you except through God. In this surrender you are engaging all the virtues – faith, hope, love, humility, simplicity, meekness, trust.”

Prayer is communication with God, either in the heart, on the lips, or through any action that is surrendered to the Divine Will.”

My Mother prays with you when you pray the Rosary. Her Heart is a channel through which your prayers ascend to Heaven and grace passes back down to you. Her Heart is a connection then to God and God’s grace, just as you would connect an electric light to currents.”

God receives the sacrifice of prayer and uses it as a sword against evil. He changes the prayer into grace that overcomes evil in hearts. Then see, it is Satan that tries to keep you from praying. It is Satan who embattles your heart and tries to keep you from surrendering your will so that you can pray.”

No matter your course of action in any event, everything depends on God. Trust this. The soul that trusts only in himself is lost.”

Think of prayer as a sunbeam. Its ray stretches down from Heaven. It nourishes the lilies and flowers. It royally clothes them in light. Thus arrayed, they bloom and their beauty gives glory to God. The soul that surrenders to prayer much, also becomes beautiful in God’s eyes and gives glory to God.”

I have told you, My confidante, that prayer is a surrender and a sacrifice. But the soul must also accept the way prayers are answered. The little flower receives what it needs to be nourished and grow. The soul, through prayer, receives what it needs for salvation. In humility, he must accept God’s Will. If the Father knows what the little flower needs, does he not know your needs as well? Accept what He sends you in humility and gratefulness, like the little flower dancing in the sunlight.”

I am pleased with any prayer. Most of all I am pleased with sincere prayer from the heart. This kind of prayer changes people and events. I, your Jesus, love the prayer of the Mass the most. Then I love the Rosary.”

Follow Me in prayer. I will lead you.”

July 19, 1999

Dearest child, I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

I have come to help you understand the value of the present moment. I do not ask of you heroic deeds and pious acts in each and every present moment as a means of salvation. I do ask your surrender to the law of love. This is the way of reconciliation with your Creator. Mankind has lost sight of this truth. I have come today to renew every heart in a commitment to Holy Love.”

Take for instance one Hail Mary. If it is recited with a loving heart it brings with it the power to convert a soul, to stop a war, to deliver a soul from purgatory, even to change the future of the world. See then that the love in your heart when you pray determines the power of the prayer.”

Suppose you were to make a great sacrifice but with much tepidity. I would honor a small, hidden sacrifice done with much Holy Love so much more!”

If you were to surrender to Me everything you own, but did so begrudgingly or with much flamboyance and show, I would not honor such a sacrifice as much as one Hail Mary offered in the quiet of your heart with much love.”

Do not lose sight of this truth. Do not be confounded by how much you give Me, but always give with love. This is the key to accomplishing much good and to staying within the Divine Will of My Father. Make it known.”

October 11, 2007

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“Today I tell you, it is sacrificial love that wins the conversion of souls. When you sacrifice with a loving heart for the good of another, I am able to reach out with strength and power which you have earned for that soul through sacrificial love.”

“Love must be at the heart of all prayer, all good works, all sacrifice; the deeper the love, the more meritorious the action. I desire all people realize this so as to strengthen My army against evil.”
