In October, 2017 on the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, there was a Jesus to Mankind seminar and prayer meeting at Milford, Auckland New Zealand. A few days later this same seminar was given in Australia – the “land across the ditch” (as we affectionately describe each other). Crusader Chris, generously allowed me to post this on our site. (Note that the headings, the highlighting of the text and images have been added by me.)
“As I mentioned in an email to (P… Prayer group leader) I am writing this five days later (12 October) and I am still buzzing from this meeting, and still synthesizing all that I learnt! I consider it was the most important weekend of my life (so far!)!
Extent of the Remnant Army
What was the most wonderful, was to gain a broader picture of what God is doing through His “Remnant Army” globally. Joseph is widely travelled as Maria Divine Mercy’s spokesman, so to hear that there are Crusade prayer groups scattered throughout Communist China, for instance, was quite a revelation! Recently when he visited Slovenia, a small nation of 2.5 million, he spoke to an audience of seven hundred people. In Portugal, the nation which Our Lady said would never lose the Faith, there are Crusade prayer groups “everywhere” and roughly 50 priests who believe in this Mission of Salvation which has been revealed through Maria Divine Mercy. This worldwide glimpse makes us realize we are not some freakish little bunch out on a limb!
Joseph also conveyed a message from Maria that Jesus has told her He is “very happy with His Remnant Army! They are saving thousands of souls!” This just reminds us of the power invested in these tailor-made prayers from Heaven – it is promised that their effect, when prayed, will bring “thirty fold” results. These prayers rank alongside the Holy Rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet in their effectiveness against the enemy and conversion of souls. In accompaniment with the Crusade Prayers, the Seal of the Living God is “the greatest gift from the Father since He gave humanity the gift of life”!!!
Maria’s Story and Knock, Ireland
To hear from Joseph some of the more personal aspects and background information on his involvement and Maria’s beginnings has, for me, fleshed out the bones of this Mission. Joseph is directed by Maria where he must go and talk, and she, in turn, is directed by the Lord.
Maria’s story really began at the apparition site of Knock in County Mayo, Ireland, in 2010. It was there that Our Blessed Mother appeared to her, weeping copiously, for fifteen minutes, which brought Maria to her knees, also in tears. Joseph impressed upon us the strategic significance of Knock’s famous vision of 1879.
Going back to 1846, the Blessed Mother appeared at La Salette in France where she was then seen weeping as well. It was there she revealed the apocalyptic times ahead, culminating in the antichrist taking his seat in Rome.
The Significance of Ireland being chosen
In the following decade the Irish people went through terrible suffering during the potato famine, millions martyred for their faith (an historical fact I was unaware of). After the Protestant Reformation which swept Europe from 31 October 1517, when Luther posted his “95 Theses”, Ireland never waived from the Catholic Faith and sent out its priests and religious to carry the Faith to many nations including New Zealand. Joseph believes that Ireland’s faithfulness is the reason it was chosen for this final Mission.
La Salette and Knock
33 years after La Salette we were given the symbolic tableau at Knock. It was a silent announcement that the final book of Holy Scripture was about to be opened. The four elements of the vision were the areas which were about to be under a concerted attack in the last great battle for souls:
St Joseph, representing the Church, marriage and the family;
Our Lady symbolizing motherhood and femininity, also Marian devotion;
St John with the Holy Book open (possibly the Book of Truth, but certainly Revelations) standing for the Word of God to be undermined and diluted, even changed;
and the Lamb on the Altar as the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Blessed sacrament, to be desecrated and abolished.
So Knock is a precursor of the final mission, which is the very place where Maria Divine Mercy’s revelations commenced.
Knock Apparition leads to apparition of Pope LeoXIII and to Fatima
It is interesting (my little side note here!) that five years after Knock, in 1884, Pope Leo XIII had his famous supernatural experience where he overheard Satan boasting to the Lord that he would destroy His Church. The Lord gave him one hundred years and Pope Leo gave the Church the prayer of St Michael. Another period of 33 years passed and the extraordinary events at Fatima unfolded with the greatest public miracle ever in Church history.
Maria – the 7th Messenger, Revelation and Book of Truth
Jesus told Maria that she was the 7th messenger, the seventh angel, and Joseph pointed out this is mentioned in Revelations chapter 10, which also speaks of a “small book” which no doubt is the Book of Truth which Daniel was told would remain sealed until the end times. Also in Revelations chapter 7 verse 2 there is reference to the Seal of the Living God.
A Seminar that had us spellbound
For four or five hours Joseph held us spellbound with an extensive and intensive coverage of a variety of topics … the feminization of the western world and Church, which has led to the emasculation of society, with its ultimate aim of destroying our understanding of fatherhood and God the Father Himself…. the 500 year legacy of Lutherism and its deadly toll…. the desecration of churches, holy ground and the sacraments in readiness for the antichrist… the state of the priesthood and the neo-paganism inside the Catholic Church which is already in schism.
Another inspiring and encouraging aspect of the seminar was to hear (… many ) voices in unison praying the Crusade Prayers together and to meet like-minded fellow Crusaders, which helps us in the formation of a nationwide Remnant network.
Jesus is happy with His Remnant Army
There are four things I have carried away with me from last Saturday:
(1) confirmation of all that I have believed for the past 5 years through the Book of Truth messages;
(2) the understanding that while the messages are important in deepening our awareness of what is unfolding around us, and while talking and sharing are also essential, the most important thing of all is THE PRAYERS;
(3) the words of Jesus Himself that He is “very happy with His remnant army, they are saving thousands of souls!”;
(4) and throughout his talk, Joseph’s constant reiteration,
“Don’t you know WHO you are?!
You are powerful!
You are going to defeat the Beast!
Don’t you KNOW who you are!!”
Finally, ingrained on my mind now forever is the heart-breaking image of God the Father, as Maria once saw Him, His Face bathed with tears as He told her He was so distressed at losing so many souls….”
