A Dream of ‘The Warning’

The Bible tells us not to disregard dreams or visions, but rather to expect them, in the latter days:

Acts Of Apostles 2:17
And it shall come to pass, in the last days, (saith the Lord,) I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams

Joel 2:28

[28] And it shall come to pass after this, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy: your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions[29]Moreover upon my servants and handmaids in those days I will pour forth my spirit. [30] And I will shew wonders in heaven; and in earth, blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke. [31] The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood: before the great and dreadful day of the Lord doth come. [32] And it shall come to pass, that every one that shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved: for in Mount Sion, and in Jerusalem shall be salvation, as the Lord hath said, and in the residue whom the Lord shall call.

It is unusual for my daughter, K, (aged 22) to have a spiritual dream. During the early hours of Thursday morning 21st April, she had a significant dream which she relayed to me in the early hours of the day as this:

“Me, dad, J.(my fiancé), and mum were sitting on J’s bed talking about stuff. Suddenly, this strange vibrating noisy feeling starts – soft and increasing. Everyone starts groaning and being confused. Mum says ‘this is The Illumination’. I turn to J. and say: “Quick; pray! Pray!

Vibrating surrounds and engulfs and puts us all into our own experience. I look at J. because he screams in pain and I grab his hand tight.

When it ends, he says ‘I didn’t think it was going to be that bad/like that’ (as in his sins/experience). I saw nothing, hence why I was able to look at J. and grab his hand. I didn’t experience anything. Just the same sound/isolation that everyone else did.”

Later that same day I related the dream exactly as she described it in her text message, to the prayer group.

Interpretation by another Prayer group member (and others agreed):

  1. K was not in the dream (as part of it) but was watching the effects. She could only warn and feel compassion. It is still to be expected that on the real day, she will experience and see, as all of us will, the state of our souls before God.

I felt this dream was confirmation of my thought to start systematically and quietly warning people in earnest now about the “Illumination of Conscience”. As you can see, I already posted an article on The Warning, earlier this same week- before this dream occurred. We must follow the inspirations of the Holy Spirit. If we have a year at most, how many letterbox drops can we do in that time? 5 streets nearby? 2 neighbourhoods? Or more? Obviously the more we reach the better, but we need to work little by little, regularly, not all at once and then run out of steam!  Let us not be the lazy servant! Nor the bridesmaid who ran out of oil!

To have strength and guidance we have to be right with God first. Do not neglect this or you will fall and it will cost you souls. My own conscience has been pricked more keenly and more often and I’ve been going to Confession more frequently now, as was result. This gives me great relief as I feel God’s Mercy descend upon me.

Examine yourselves, every thought, word and deed in earnest. Confess your sins now while you can and amend your lives. I received confirmation of this also tonight as I opened on this passage Revelations: 16: 15-16.

[15] Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

We identify with this garment as a description of “Sanctifying Grace”. We will not be able to hide our shame during the Warning if we are in Mortal sin. All our deeds will be laid bare before our own eyes and God. The pure white garment of our Baptism is lost when we choose to gravely sin against God’s Commandments.

Crusade Prayer (131) The Mercy Prayer

O my dear Mother of Salvation, please ask your Son, Jesus Christ, to grant Mercy to (name all here…) during The Warning and again on the final Day, before they come before your Son. Please pray that each of them will be saved and enjoy the fruits of Eternal Life. Protect them, every day, and take them to your Son, so that His Presence will be shown to them and that they will be granted peace of the spirit and attain great Graces. Amen.

Preparation and prayer for this event is important. Many of the Crusade Prayers we have been given by Jesus are directly  to assist with, or additionally mention, souls in relation to The Warning. But this is not all, of course…

St John Bosco

A Tribute to St John Bosco.

(It is his Feast Day today, 31st January, on the Tridentine Latin Mass Calendar).

What a joy to see that it was St John Bosco’s Feast Day today! This inspirational, dedicated man brought so many young, unformed souls to fullness of faith and safely into Jesus’ arms. Even today, an ‘old soul’, fighting the good fight, can learn so much from reading his amazing God-given insights. That God chose and blessed this man for a singular vision and special purpose is clear from his early life.St john bosco

I had the good fortune of a fellow believer, (who is a wife and mother of seven children who are mostly now grown and all fervently practising their faith) recommend to me a book called “The Forty Dreams of St John Bosco: The Apostle of Youth” which is taken from his Biographical Memoirs. My own children have not yet been able to read much of it because their mummy can’t put it down!

St John Bosco had prophetic dreams, visions and ecstasies. When a dream is a supernatural event, the receiver of the dream knows it. But the believers who had the privilege of hearing a dream of his, also knew it. In dreams he often saw secrets of people’s consciences and future events in detail, such as deaths, which did actually then occur. One of the funniest, most convincing early dreams was when, during his childhood, he was given to know the contents of his school exams beforehand in a dream, which allowed him to pass exams-and exceptionally well at that! The teacher thought somehow that he’d been cheating as he didn’t believe his ridiculous but honest explanation that he had ‘dreamt’ what was in it. Then one day the teacher wrote a very long, hard Latin test which John finished in record time. The teacher had only enough time in class to dictate half the exam that he’d prepared the night before, and was speechless to see that John had completed the full test, down to the very last word!

Here I’ll retell just one story: the dream of the Deadly Nooses, because it is easy to remember and made quite an impact on me. It is symbolic teaching dream, not a literal one.

John Bosco was a priest who particularly cared for the education and formation of boys in the Faith.  Part of his duty, therefore, was both hearing confessions and providing spiritual guidance and direction, including giving advice in regards to conquering sin. Once he dreamed that he stood amongst a large group of boys who were preparing to make a confession when he noticed many had nooses around their necks that they could not remove! Upon inspection, there were horrible beast-cats crouching behind those boys, holding the nooses tightly in place, around the boys’ necks. Some held several nooses in their paws. cat d

St John Bosco ordered through the Holy Name of Jesus Christ that the beasts reveal the purpose of the nooses. Tortured in appearance, the monster which he questioned was forced to speak:

“Don’t you understand? I rope these boys into making bad confessions. With these nooses I drag 9/10ths of mankind into Hell.” He then revealed the specific purpose of each noose.

The first noose makes the boys conceal their sins in Confession. The second to confess without true sorrow. The third noose keeps them from making a firm resolution and from carrying out their confessor’s advice.

Later St John Bosco related the dream to the boys to teach them about sincerity, sorrow and resolution. He explained that the first noose is not only about concealing sins but also about downplaying them or not being sincere- for example by accusing yourself of having done something 3 or 4 times when you know it to be exactly four, but don’t want to sound so bad. He says that if we are to rid ourselves of these nooses and wrench them from the devil’s clutches, we must confess all our sins and be truly sorry for them. I know that sometimes I must accuse myself of not having true sorrow when I know I should! I get annoyed at myself for not being as sorry as I know I should. But I also know that we must continuously pray for the grace to be truly sorry and to grow in contrition for our sins.

The devil also revealed that he hides behind the boys so that he cannot be seen. That way it is far easier to cajole people into sin and insincerity. He lastly revealed that if we want to know whether or not we (or one of our children) are held in his leash, we will know by whether or not we (they) are becoming better.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation in which Catholics confess their sins is a very great grace. It gives us the means to conquer ourselves for the sake of Christ, in order to be truly free. Without frequent confession we do not cut ourselves off from sin and the devil, although we may kid ourselves that we have done so. Faith is true when seen in a person’s works- a holy and pure life, as an outliving of his Faith, transformed completely bsorrowy the Spirit. (James 2: 14-26) When our thoughts, words or actions become wordly, selfish or not as Christ called us, we must return to Him, in word and deed, with sincerity of heart.  As St Paul says, we have to continue to work out our salvation in fear and trembling.

Wherefore, my dearly beloved, (as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but much more now in my absence,) with fear and trembling work out your salvation.  Phillipians 2:12 (Douay Rheims Bible)
