Tribute to the Sacred Heart: “The Legend of the Locket”

 +AMDG

Today is the last day of June – Month of the Sacred Heart.

The following story is worth meditating on – Jesus’ consuming Love for us, the power of Sacramentals and prayer, Special Graces such as being able to receive the Last Sacraments, special role of priests who bring Jesus and his Love to each of us. We should acknowledge this Love He has for us, give Thanksgiving, share it with others, offer and practice devotions and reparation to Jesus’ Sacred heart for all the sins and blasphemies It endures.

 

It was a bitter cold night in January, and the moon without threw its pale light over the wan spectral snow-covered landscape. The sharp gust that swept into the hall as I opened the door made me pity the delicate-looking child who stood at the threshold.

Her hair gleamed with a strange and rare effect in the moonlight, long golden hair that fell in graceful ripples about her shoulders. She was lightly dressed, this little child, as she stood gazing straight and frankly into my eyes with an expression at once so beautiful and calm and earnest that I shall never forget it.

Her face was very pale, her complexion of the fairest. The radiancy about her hair seemed to glow in some weird yet indescribable fashion upon her every feature. These details I had not fairly taken in when she addressed me.
“Father, can you come with me at once? My mother is dying, and she is in trouble.”

“Come inside, my little girl,” I said, “and warm yourself. You must be half frozen.”
“Indeed, Father, I am not in the least cold.” I had thrown on my coat and hat as she made answer.

“Your mother’s name, my child?”
“Catherine Morgan, Father; she’s a widow, and has lived like a saint. And now that she’s dying, she is in awful trouble. She was taken sick about a few hours ago.”
“Where does she live?”
“Two miles from here, Father, on the border of the Great Swamp; she is a stranger in these parts, and alone. I know the way perfectly; you need not be afraid of getting lost.”

A few minutes later we were tramping through the snow, or rather I was tramping, for the child beside me moved with so light and tender a step, that had there been flowers instead of snowflakes beneath our feet I do not think a single petal would have been crushed under the airy fall of her fairy feet.
Her hand was in mine with the confiding clasp of childhood. Her face, for all the trouble that was at home, wore a gravely serene air, such as is seldom seen in years of sprightly, youthful innocence.

How beautiful she looked!
More like a creature fresh from the perfect handiwork of God than one who walked in the valley of sin, sorrow, trouble and death.

Upon her bosom I observed a golden locket fashioned in a heart shape.
She noticed my glance, and with a quick movement of her fingers released the locket and handed it to me.
“It’s a heart,” I said.
“Read what’s on it, Father.”
“I can’t, my little friend; my eyes are very good, but are not equal to making out reading on gold lockets by moonlight.”
“Just let me hold it for you, Father. Now look.”
How this child contrived, I cannot say; but certain it is, that at once, as she held the locket at a certain angle, there stood out clearly, embossed upon its surface, the legend:

“Cease! the Heart of Jesus is with me.”
“Mamma placed that upon my bosom one year ago, when I was very sick, Father.” And kissing the locket, the child restored it to its place.

We went on for a time in silence. I carried the Blessed Sacrament with me; and, young as she was, the girl seemed to appreciate the fact. Whenever I glanced at her, I observed her lips moving as in prayer, and her eyes seemed, in very truth, fixed upon the place where rested in His sacramental veil the Master of Life and of Death.

Suddenly the girl’s hand touched my sleeve-oh, so gently!
“This is the place, Father,” she said in soft tones that thrilled me as they broke upon the stillness; and she pointed to a little hut standing back in the dim shadows of three pine trees.

I pushed open the door, which hung loosely upon its hinges, and turned to wait her entrance. She was gone. Somewhat startled, I was peering out into the pallid night, when a groan called me to the bedside of the dying woman.

A glance told me there was no time to lose. The woman lying in that room had hardly reached middle life, but the hand of Death had touched her brow, upon which stood the drops of sweat, and in her face I read a great trouble.

I was at her side in an instant; and, God be thanked for it, soon calmed and quieted the poor creature. She made her confession, and in sentiments of faith and love such as I have rarely seen, received the Last Sacraments of the Church.

Standing beside her, I suggested those little prayers and devices so sweet and consoling at the dread hour. I noticed, as the time passed on, that her eyes frequently turned toward a little box at the farther end of the room.
“Shall I bring you that box?” I asked.

She nodded assent.
On placing it beside her, she opened it with trembling hands and took out the dress of a child.
“Your little daughter’s dress?” I said.
She whispered, and there was love in her tones: “My darling Edith’s.”
“I know her,” I continued. She brought me here, you know.”

I stopped short and caught my breath. The woman half rose in her bed; she looked at me in wonder that cannot be expressed. I, no less amazed, was staring at a golden, oval locket fastened to the bosom of the child’s dress which the woman was holding in her hands.

The Book of Truth and the Apparition at Knock, Ireland: Looking back at an amazing seminar

AM+DG

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….”

Prophecy and the Burning of Notre Dame

The tremendous fire which suddenly and unexpectedly engulfed and ravished The Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris is certainly a momentous historical event which can be read in many ways. It was witnessed, with grief, the world over and from the outset, the stark simple words, which came to me in a text message in the early hours of Tuesday morning, “Notre Dame, Paris is on fire!”, drew a sense of ominous foreboding. I do not pretend to know what this fire means exactly; it can and does mean so many things which many people have already eloquently expressed.

The great symbol of Christendom in the Western World fallen.

The sorrow and the grief is appropriate and it seems to me a sign, an ominous sign, of what is to come. In fact, before I wrote this, I prayed and sought the words of God to direct my actions and words and this is what I opened it on in my Bible:

 

The Prelude to the Prophecy

He said then,

“Do you know why I have come to you? It is to tell you what is written in the Book of Truth.” (Daniel 11: 20).

 

The first thing I noticed, simultaneous to the sense of foreboding (the burning church seemed like a death knell) was that it was the roof that was on fire; the roof and the spires.

Roof of Notre Dame burning

They lit up the skyline; it couldn’t be missed. Despite investigations, they have not been able to find the cause, accidental or otherwise, or any act of arson, which caused this mysterious fire- which started in the roof. Now that the embers have died down, we know too, that it was mostly contained to the roof as most of the rest of the structure was stone; bell towers and Rose stained glass windows remain intact. Immediately, I was reminded yet again of the fairly recent events, occurring also on significant liturgical days, where other churches’ roofs spectacularly collapsed and the prophecy about this made in the Book of Truth:

My child, many signs will be made known from the Heavens, upon the roofs of my Son’s Churches, when the final changes are made in the Liturgy of the Holy Mass. All those who keep their eyes open and their ears alert will witness the Anger of my Son in a way in which they cannot fail to notice.

My Son promised that He would make known His Anger when they, within His Church on Earth, crucify Him again by defiling His Body and Blood during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.”

(Extract from message given Sept 23rd, 2013)

Is His Body and Blood being defiled during Masses? Well, it is when unrepentant sinners -in serious, mortal sin- are allowed, enabled, even boldly encouraged to approach the Table of The Lord unworthily and commit sacrilege. I don’t just mean those in invalid second marriages, homosexuals or sexually abusive priests but also abortion-supporting Catholics (including politicians) in serious schism with Church teachings and all who regularly and with full knowledge do not keep His Commands. How many priests are so accepting now that they participate in and/or condone these sins, facilitating sacrilege, betraying Our Lord and rendering His Sacrifice meaningless? For what need is there to be saved, what need for Jesus to suffer so cruelly and to die for our Salvation, when there is no longer the notion of sin? If we deny sin, we deny the need for Salvation and Christ’s Sacrifice becomes a pointless doctrine. We cannot repent when we do not recognize that which we have become and in actual fact, we cannot be saved. It makes a mockery of His Sacrifice present in the Holy Sacrament. And this defiling of the Table of the Lord, leads me to another point.

In at least two of the examples, the church roof completely destroyed the modern altar beyond recognition, while leaving in place the traditional high altar. The scene of destruction at Notre Dame bears an uncanny resemblance to the scene at the Church in Malta; with empty pews looking on the scene of destruction where formerly a modern Novus Ordo altar stood, now revealing the old high altar instead, in all its glory. Look at them side by side here;

maltese-churchInterior Notre Dame post fire

The altar is, of course, where the consecration takes place; it exists solely to confect the Holy Eucharist; the Body and Blood of Our Lord. So when Jesus makes His anger known in this way, it is clearly linked to the desecration of His Body and Blood and defiling of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, when the altar is destroyed.

I would not yet say that many signs have been made known on the roofs of Catholic Churches, only that some have definitely been made. This is also appropriate to the prophecy, as many signs will be made known …when the final changes are made in the Liturgy of the Holy Mass. These changes have not yet occurred.

These signs then, which could be the prelude to the fulfilment of the entire prophecy, (similar to the sub-heading in my Bible),  are the initial warnings, leading up to the time when the final changes are made in the Holy Liturgy, when these signs will be multiplied.

And in their own right, at the very least, these signs seem to be making known the anger of God’ Son– on the roofs of His Churches. The tremendous combustion of the roof and spires of Notre Dame is one such Church and- it cannot be denied– is a significant sign, given at the start of Holy Week, 2019.

Read about some of the other signs on the roofs of  Catholic Churches which seem to be  fulfilling this prophecy here:

A JtM Miracle of Healing in My Family: Part 2

AM+DG

Recently, a family event took me for a visit far North from me (an 8 hour drive) to visit my husband’s uncle again.
I relished the opportunity to see them all and spend time with them over the weekend plus a few extra days. Amongst the celebrations there were some opportunities for quieter moments.

Uncle has clearly not stopped telling people about his miracle cure, whether they believe in God or not. It’s a take or it leave it story, coming as it does from him. He has no agenda and no need to convince anyone. He clearly only wants to share one thing; the unique and extraordinary peace that he experienced when he was enveloped in the Love of God; without actually seeing Him, he knew who He Was.

He tells us that he does not fear death anymore. And he still has that sense of wonder regarding encountering God unexpectedly and undeservedly, although his understanding and knowledge of God is very abstract and naive still, at the moment.

I enjoyed him re-telling the story as only by hearing it in person and watching his face, can someone truly see how genuine and honest he is about what he discovered. It’s easy to brush off a story until you hear it firsthand. And so once again, a most unlikely fella has become a little draw-card; spreading his tale amongst the unchurched and unbelievers.

Only this time, he knew he was speaking to a believer- that knowing nod and smile of recognition which greets each detail, serves only to loosen further truths that are normally held very private and close to the heart.

And so, it was then that Uncle shared with me just a little more to what had happened; an innocent but absolutely precious piece of the jigsaw, especially to a Catholic sensibility.

While he was laying in the hospital bed, dying, he was visited by a beautiful woman. She sat with him, beside him and held his hand. He was not afraid as the Peace of God enveloped him and indeed the whole room. He felt extraordinary love present with him.

Then the lady said, slowly and with solemn gravity, You are a very sick man…”
“But”, she continued, “you are going to be okay; you have a lot of people praying for you. And Uncle, never doubting her words, was uniquely comforted.

This meant so much to me; more than any other detail and the reason is this. I knew that message was meant for me as soon as I received it, not hearing it until more than a year after his recovery. You see, unlike most families we know, Uncle was not surrounded by people praying for him, or a church community. None of his immediate family or friends believe in God, or pray or go to Church at all. Don’t get me wrong, in their hearts I know they desperately “hoped”and “wished” for Uncle to recover; they are good people, as most people are, for the most part. But they truly do not know God. They aren’t really sure He exists.

There were the children and I who offered up constant prayers and daily Masses but we can hardly count as “a lot”. I know that there was a kind, little old Italian lady, an acquaintance of theirs, whom, Aunty told me, had Masses offered for Uncle’s recovery. That was certainly a relief to me at the time, to hear of one other who was truly crying out to heaven for him. But it was more than that.

That message was meant for me, and not just for me, because our Jesus to Mankind prayer group had been consistently offering up prayer for him by name, daily and as a group, several times a week, over the weeks and months of his increasingly more serious illness.

And each Jesus to Mankind prayer group around the world offers its prayers in union with one another each time we pray, especially remembering the intentions of each other during The Rosary. We were committed to praying for Uncle. Together we make up the large number of people that were praying for him!

JtM remnant disciples wohs 2I had just received a message that the miraculous and instantaneous healing of my husband’s Uncle, which saved his life and offered him a glimpse of salvation, was because of the Crusade Prayers, Masses and Rosaries offered by a group of Crusaders and all those who joined us around the world! And God in His Mercy heard and answered in the most miraculous way, bringing many blessings to Uncle along  the way.

This could be any one of your families – our families. Do not delay. By joining in the Mission of Salvation, you unite your prayers to Jesus to Mankind Prayer Groups all over the world. Jesus’ remnant army has already been formed. Jesus wants us to help Him to save every single soul on earth, before He comes again to judge the Living and the Dead.

We shouldn’t be surprised.  We must pray with conviction because Jesus Himself promised us miracles.”

“…These Crusade Prayer groups, when formed all over the world, will become the armour necessary to defeat the enemy in more ways than you can believe possible.
I will continue to give you the Gifts of new prayers,which bring with them special miracles. Without such intervention I could not save the souls I so desire….”  ( See Book of Truth message on March 7, 2013 @ 11:05)

I now bequeath special powers and graces to all of you who adhere to My wishes to recite the Crusade Prayers. The signs will be given to all of you and miracles will take place. (See Book of Truth message March 5, 2013 @ 3:30pm)

Jesus’ Presence and the Power of His Words

AM+DG

Incense from Revelations

There was something special about last Thursday’s gathering. I knew and felt it as soon as I entered the room where our JtM prayer group (which is under the patronage of St.Benedict) had already started to pray.

I had my granddaughter with me and she was keeping me busy with getting her settled in to the playroom. When I was finally able to join in the prayers of the Rosary, I knelt as soon as I entered the room. I was worried about being distracted, about coming in late, about being able to settle in to prayer. But the first thing I noticed, as soon as I entered and knelt, was a very reverent atmosphere and, for a change, that I was actually instantly able to concentrate and enter into prayer. This surprised me; it was unexpected and I felt it to be a special (and undeserved) grace. I felt as if Jesus or Mary was present there, in a special way, but I cannot explain that- except for this feeling of reverence within the atmosphere of the room.

I was too soon pulled away again by ‘Miss 3 year old’ to tend to another problem but I continued to pray and hurried back to re-join the group. It was upon re-entering that I realized that the room in which our group was praying was filled with the smell of incense...

As I came back in to the prayer room, I had opened the sliding door and the clear, unmistakable smell of incense had filled the room – but it was not visible

prayer and incense and I also observed that it did not choke me or cause a cough. As someone else opened the door and knelt, I noticed that the scent wafted out towards the other rooms and gradually diffused while the last two decades of the Chaplet of Mercy were prayed.

After prayer, we read from the Book of Truth Volume 3 a message about Truth and how once it is tampered with, it becomes only an empty shell. At this point, I noticed something else that happened. Something so ‘out of the ordinary’, that I thought it almost miraculous. My wonderful, elderly Aunty (who has developed a form of dementia) suddenly sat up and took notice as we read the words of Jesus about Truth. Her face reflected the myriad of emotions; as if she felt every word as they were being read aloud. She sighed and at the end said that it was all ‘so true’. She was responding to Jesus’ Words! This is the first time that this has ever happened and the longest time that I have ever seen her so lucid and at the same time, deeply thoughtful.

Jesus’ Words are full of the power of the Holy Spirit. That day my Aunty was visibly moved by the Holy Spirit. In any person, this is amazing, but today it brought home one more thing. God’s Word is like a sword. It cuts like a knife. It can cut through the fog of dementia. It can reach the most hardened heart or the most feeble mind. We should not fail to share It; especially with the weak, the sick and the dying. Even the comatose. For only Our Lord knows the good it does and It’s Power. We are to be ever thankful for His Holy Word.

That is why that moment, and all of Thursday, was special.  That is why every prayer meeting around the world is too.

 

From the Book of Truth (5th Feb. 2013)

“… For each Prayer Group set up, to recite the Crusade Prayers, a special Grace will be given to you by my precious Son.

He is present in every group and He will make you aware of this. You will feel His Love and then you will witness the fruits, as they will pour forth and spread His Most Holy Word….”

Message from Mother of God – Mother of Salvation

-For JtM Crusaders worldwide-

Easter Sunday Conversion from Good Friday Graces

AM+DG

Recently mum re-posted a series of messages that Jesus gave about Good Friday. In one of them, He said that great graces will be given on this day for non-believers to convert; if they just open their heart for one day.

 The time has come for all of you to open your hearts to Me, for just one day, to enable Me to fill you with special graces. These graces will now be bestowed on those of you who have forgotten that I Exist, as the time draws nearer to Good Friday. (14 April 2011 @ 11:00am)

That reminded of a story, yet to be shared here by me; where the most amazing and wonderful thing happened in my family.

On Good Friday of 2014, that very prophecy came true

I had been praying Crusade Prayers for a few years and my prayers for my mother-in-law, in particular, increased around Christmas time in 2013. She was terminally ill and I desperately longed for her conversion to Our Lord. For Christmas, I made 10 Mass offerings because I could not think of anything a dying person would need more than that. Those Masses were for her conversion.

By Holy Week, she was hospitalized for a downhill turn and then stabilized, having had a drip put in. Her condition was being managed and she was always grateful to have visitors.

I prayed very earnestly that Good Friday that I would be able to share the faith with her and that she would start to believe and trust in God. I started the “Novena of the Chaplet of Mercy” on Good Friday because it is a very powerful prayer and I believe in all it’s promises.

I participated in the “Stations of the Cross” on Good Friday morning. Knowing I had to speak to her that day, I thought ‘I wish I had a holy card of Jesus Divine Mercy image to take with me’.

But all the shops were closed on Good Friday and there was no piety store at the Chapel. ‘Where would I get one now? If only I’d been better prepared!

After we had finished our devotions, while leaving the Chapel, a little old Italian lady followed, waving something at me. “Here! Here! Would you like one of these?” In her hand was a small pile of Jesus Divine Mercy images and she was offering me one (and anyone who would take them!) I knew it was Providence. I was so grateful! I now had something to take so that my mother-in-law had something to meditate upon, something that could be used to start a conversation and something that might console her.Divine Mercy.jpg

I then drove to the hospital to visit and to sit and talk with her a while. I felt brave, impelled by a sense of urgency as, at each turn, we worried whether she would make it out of hospital this time.

So when I sat by her side, I talked with her about what God the Father and Heaven is like. For the first time ever, in the 20 years I had tried to talk to her about matters of faith, I saw her face light up and saw her really listen. It was clear she had opened her heart that day to receive what I had to share. I sensed the difference in her reception. I knew she responded differently; she marvelled at what I said! And told me that I made a very good teacher and that I should be a scripture teacher! I chuckled because I knew it wasn’t my work, but the Lord’s! The right words just seemed to come out as I spoke.

As I spoke, I heard a rustle, sensed someone present and then noticed the silhouette of a person hovering just outside her curtain, which was drawn for some privacy, in the busy 4 person hospital ward. I sensed the person “waiting”. So I paused after a couple of sentences and asked if they needed to come in. Nurses often came and go checking blood pressure etc. so I deduced that it was probably a nurse waiting to do observations.

“Oh don’t mind me, I’m just loitering,” he said (through the curtain).

“You can listen if you like!” I warmly offered, as it was obvious that’s what he’d been doing. I’m not sure if he was a nurse or a janitor; he wore a uniform. He then went away. I said a silent prayer for him.

At the end of our conversation I gave her the image for her consolation; to meditate upon and to relieve her fears. She accepted the small holy card gratefully but even more, my words.

I sensed a change in her that day; a turning and an opening of heart. This was a fulfillment of Jesus’ prophecy about receiving special graces on Good Friday and particularly in relation to the Novena of Divine Mercy.

Then the next day (Holy Saturday) she had a bad turn again and lost the power to speak. She was very frightened by this.

Early Easter Sunday morning, she regained her speech and the first thing she did was tell her youngest son to call the priest. She wanted to become Catholic and receive all the blessings of Faith! He rang me. “Can you get Father R?” Imagine me trying to get a priest to the hospital on Easter Sunday!! It sounded impossible. I messaged our priest and jumped in the shower, not expecting a reply. He would be at Mass for sure. It was about 9am. When I got out, I read that he was on his way! Before I could even get to the hospital, he had completed all the rites of initiation. She had been baptized Presbyterian so that day she made her First Confession, Confirmation, Anointing of the Sick and First Holy Communion. He then left just as quickly as he arrived. An Easter Sunday conversion! What a miracle!

Afterwards, the whole family arrived, being called to her bedside, as she appeared to be very unwell; barely able to talk or breathe. So we gathered around her bedside.  She then called up all her children one by one, from eldest to youngest. Another surprise was in store from the Holy Spirit.

She called the eldest, her daughter first. “I want you to become Catholic.”

“No mum, I’m not going to do that.”

Undeterred, she continued, AND I want you to baptize your children.”

Next, she called her eldest son, gave the same imperatives and received the same replies, and the next son followed, right down to the fourth child, the youngest, who finally said “Yes, mum” because he never said no to his mum. She kept repeating her wish regardless of their answers because she knew what had to be done.

For myself, I had tried to do what Jesus’ message said:

“My children, use Holy Week to remind all of the Sacrifices I made for sinners.”

My mother-in-law was one of the people that Jesus talks about who had ‘forgotten that He exists’. She hadn’t meant to. She had had a hard life; without ‘rich soil’.

These graces will now be bestowed on those of you who have forgotten that I Exist, as the time draws nearer to Good Friday”.

I told her to talk to God in her own words (like the message says) and to pray for others.

“As the time for the powerful Novena of the Divine Mercy draws close, this time will be used to flood your souls with a special Gift from Me. Do now as I say, and pray in your own words, to Me today. The graces I will give you will not only bring you closer to My Sacred Heart, but will fill you with the Holy Spirit”.

She told me about a dream she had; she felt she needed to save 3 children who were in danger. She didn’t know who they were and was really worried about them. It was a recent dream because it was playing on her mind and she asked me about it. I told her that she may have had the dream because God wants her to pray for them; in order to save them. I explained that the danger may be spiritual, although it felt physical. This was a new idea to her; that she could offer prayers for the salvation of others. I am not sure if I also talked to her about offering her sufferings at that time, but at some stage I did. Gradually in little bits, she learnt what was needed about seeking and giving forgiveness and offering prayer.

These prophetic commands to her children, and her own conversion, were the result of the great graces received on just one Good Friday, making it the most joyful Easter ever!

She also recovered unexpectedly and remarkably well because of the Anointing of the Sick (as Catholics often do) and lived for 7 more blessed months. One of her last acts as a Catholic was to make a good Confession shortly before she died. She died just before Christmas and I believe is now counted among the holy souls, or even the saints in heaven.

And just so you know about the youngest son, he has not ‘turned Catholic’ yet, but after many hardships and by yet another miraculous grace, he and his wife received their first child in to the world, recently. And later this month, I am to be her God-Mother.  🙂

“Special Graces promised for Calling on Jesus for just One Day”

My beloved daughter, thank you for devoting more time to this most Sacred Work. The time has come for all of you to open your hearts to Me, for just one day, to enable Me to fill you with special graces. These graces will now be bestowed on those of you who have forgotten that I Exist, as the time draws nearer to Good Friday.

As the time for the powerful Novena of the Divine Mercy draws close, this time will be used to flood your souls with a special Gift from Me. Do now as I say, and pray in your own words, to Me today. The graces I will give you will not only bring you closer to My Sacred Heart, but will fill you with the Holy Spirit.

Pray My Novena from Good Friday and include as many souls as you can and I will save every single one.

For those of you who fall back, even after devotion to Me, I will lift you up again and again. Never be afraid to turn back to Me if you stray. I will never forsake those who keep coming back to Me. As sinners, this will tend to happen. Never fear, I Am standing next to each of you ready to embrace you every time. Sin can be forgiven. Never feel guilty for sin if you need to turn to Me to ask for forgiveness. I Am always there.

My children, use Holy Week to remind all of the Sacrifices I made for sinners. My Compassion is still strong. It has never diminished for souls, even those whose sins cause Me deep offence. If a soul seeks forgiveness, then that sin will be banished.

My Novena of Divine Mercy will instill the most powerful graces when recited from Good Friday in the lead up to the Feast of Mercy nine days later. By reciting this you will not only save your own souls but millions of others. Do this for Me.

Your ever-loving and loyal Divine Saviour,
Jesus Christ.

Testimony – “A new heart”

AM+DG

A Book of Truth/JtM Crusade Prayer Group miracle

David explains:

“I was working as a volunteer at OLOC Nursing Home, taking the people to Mass and bringing them back after Mass. After working there for over 30 years, a friend of mine – Keith E. – became a resident. He had earlier loaned me the Book of Truth by Maria of the Divine Mercy. After an operation in 2015, Keith passed away. My wife and I attended his funeral.

Keith was the one who first introduced me to The Book of Truth in about 2013, by giving me a copy that had been given to him by a close friend from church. I recognized it straight away as being the Truth. My wife and I were so convinced that she copied out the prayers by hand so that we could say them. We had no computer. We eventually found a Crusade Prayer Group through someone who approached us at a local parish, which our daughter attended.”

David’s wife continues:

“Keith was a devout Catholic who sincerely loved Our Lord. He led a good life and went to Confession daily after he had a vision of his life. One day, about 2 years after he died, I had a dream of him.”

The Dream:

“Keith was praying over me very intensely – over my head. I didn’t hear what he prayed, but at the conclusion he said:David you have a new heart’. (It’s funny he addressed my husband through me, his wife. In the Bible it tells us that the two shall become one.) At the exact moment that he said that, before I could even process it, my husband, David burst through the door. Immediately, I told David that I’d just had a dream about Keith and that Keith said ‘David, you have a new heart’.”

David’s medical history. 

David’s doctor said that David had a diseased heart. He had had a stent inserted previously, but he started having problems. His wife explains: “The doctors had wanted, for quite some months, to install a pacemaker because David’s heart was part slow and part fast, and he had been getting very weak and very slow.” He ended up in hospital twice to try and find out the cause of his irregular heartbeat. On one of these occasions, the doctor sent him to hospital in an ambulance.

Finally, as a form of intervention, the doctor took his car keys away. His doctor was convinced that he needed a pacemaker for his heart. He was sent to the hospital a third time – for tests. The conclusion was that perhaps the existing stent was the problem.

The medical check up after the dream:

After this, his personal doctor, once again examined him. She asked him if he was taking his tablets. He answered “no” because he said that he felt fine now!  She accused him of being disobedient! What the doctor didn’t know, of course, was that in the meantime heaven had intervened for him. She examined him and had another doctor, who was there, examine him as well. This time, both doctors said that there was nothing wrong with his heart. His doctor said: “It’s a miracle”.

David’s wife concludes: “In walking now, he’s back to normal and I find it hard to catch up to him.”

Postscript:

The Book of Truth Connection – Co-incidence or God-incidence?

Donna and I are the mother/daughter team that runs this site. The amazing thing is that Donna had known Keith, and I had known David and his wife, from our respective Church communities many years previously.

Donna was the young woman and friend of Keith who originally gave David the Book of Truth. Donna and Keith used to have coffee after Mass and talk about everything going on in the Church. Even now, one of her children often plays with one of Keith’s grandchildren.

After Keith became ill and entered the Nursing home, he gave the book to David, who was a volunteer helper there. It was that same Book, given to Keith by Donna, which introduced David and his wife to the Mission of Salvation. Donna was completely unaware of what had happened to the Book.

I met David and his wife at one of our regional JtM meetings last year in October, 2017.  I was surprised and happy to see him again after many years, so I went up to say hello and invited him to our prayer group.

He was already attending one, but this was on a different day and time. He does amazing work evangelizing and distributing the literature that we print, (See Menu item for “Tools of Evangelization” on this website). David says that it was about this time (i.e. October, 2017)  that the miracle had occurred.

Another amazing fact is that the Book of Truth given to Keith by Donna, and then handed on to David – was purchased by me for our prayer group members. (Postage was cheaper that way – after all, we live far away – “Down Under”).

Keith – a common friend to Donna and to David;

and David and his wife – a common friend to Keith and Donna’s mum, –

had interceded with prayer to save David’s life.

Thank you, Jesus for Your Love and care for us. You promised that you are present at every JtM Prayer group. We thank You for all the signs and wonders that you give to us, and all the members of our prayer group that you send to us. Please help us to always do your Holy Will. Amen.
