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)

and also

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)

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.  🙂

Message 0062 on the 14 April 2011 @ 11:00am

“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.

Crusade Prayer Miracle Healing in My Family

The miracles I promised the world, through My Crusade Prayers, will increase

*Message given by Jesus on May 11th, 2013.

(Excerpt reproduced below:)

“Suffering can be reduced through the prayers of My remnant army, because I bequeath to them special graces. The miracles I promised the world, through My Crusade Prayers, will increase and many will witness healings and conversions. It will be through these miracles that I will make Myself known, even to the most hardened of sceptics.”

The Story

On August 17th, 2017, we had driven on a long trip (8 hours) to attend a family wedding in the far North of NSW. We checked into a little motel and went across the road to see the relatives of the groom in order to let them know that we had arrived safely and to greet them. Unfortunately, the flu had hit all of the groom’s immediate family members quite hard and my husband’s beloved uncle came out of his bedroom only briefly to greet us, while coughing painfully, and then he went back to bed to rest. Many were ill and the wedding was only a day and a half, away.

The next day we discovered that uncle had taken himself to the doctor because he got even sicker overnight. The doctor admitted him straight to hospital because it appeared he had pneumonia. Hopes of him attending at least the wedding ceremony of his youngest (and last) son to be married, were quickly dashed as he became even more ill and unable to go anywhere on the Saturday. I became gravely concerned that he may not even live through the week after the wedding and naturally was anxious about the tragic impact this would have on the whole family. He was very much loved by all and everyone missed his presence, almost immediately, in every situation. It put a sombre cloud over the festivities.

As the only practising Christian (that I know of) on my husband’s side, I felt a responsibility to pray continuously and I recruited the help of our Crusade Prayer group, (of course) and even my teenage son, who offered his intentions at Mass each weekday for the next 4 weeks. Also, I asked for Masses to be offered by our local priest for this intention. I was praying for the salvation of uncle’s soul first and foremost, for his family and, of course, for his healing, according to God’s Will.

The news of double pneumonia on the lungs had come through by now and things only got worse. He was transferred to 3 different hospitals altogether to try to help him, he suffered a heart attack on the way in the ambulance, they talked of placing him in an induced coma and then his kidneys shut down too. I wondered whether he was Catholic and how I could talk to his family about Extreme Unction. His family were told to gather round as he probably wouldn’t survive.

His lungs were basically stuffed and he was intubated and on oxygen. The doctors couldn’t help him, although they had been trying of course, and he had lost all the little weight that he had in fighting this, to be just skin and bones. And although originally a fit man, he was 70 years old so there wasn’t much in his favour….except for the large number of people praying for him!                      And then something miraculous happened. Uncle realized that he was bound to die and that God alone could help him now. From deep in his heart, he spoke to God and asked Him to make him better. And God, in His Graciousness and Goodness, did! Overnight, he started to feel better and he started breathing normally again! In uncle’s mind and heart, the reason for this was, unmistakably, by the hand of God. 

At this sudden and marked apparent improvement, the doctors took more X-rays the next day. Soon their surprise turned to disbelief. It showed that his lungs had become completely clear- overnight! Two different, separate doctors said to him that it was completely unexplainable and they had never seen anything like it. They were astounded and clearly implied that it was miraculous.God heals

Furthermore, uncle did not even have to go in to rehab! The medical team had anticipated that he would need at least a month of rehab after ICU; to learn to rehabilitate his lungs and recover his kidneys. But, instead, he was able to go straight home! Isn’t that amazing?!

He is now just having physio at home to help him regain his muscle strength (to walk better) and he has to put back on a lot of weight. He only weighs 50kgs after the ordeal. When my husband rang to see how he was, his uncle told him the personal story of his miraculous healing. Until that point, we thought he just recovered in a natural manner; nothing else had been mentioned by anyone else. It’s funny how some people don’t like to spread the story of, or lay claim to, a miracle. It’s not that uncle won’t tell you, (he will!) but that not everyone seems to want to hear it. And this is coming from a man who does not attend church or usually speak of anything much to do with God. This seems to be the sign for ‘hardened sceptics’ as mentioned in the prophetic message given to all those who dedicate themselves to Jesus’ Mission of Salvation.

We are all just so grateful to have him back. And after all my worrying and fretting, I also found out that he is actually a baptised Catholic, after all!

Of course, all the prayers and Masses were invaluable. Even an old, Italian neighbour had a Mass said for him. But in the end, all it took was for uncle to ask God himself. Because the sign was for him, not for us who already believe. It was the only way he could know it was actually a miracle, that it was done ‘by God’ whom he called to, and that it was done in response to his plea for help, in response to his prayer. God cares that much- for him

How good is God! We all must offer thanksgiving too (not like the ungrateful lepers)- for yet another miracle and a healing, as Jesus promised. I think that since beginning this Mission, I have received within my family, 4 full conversions and 3 miraculous healings, of various types in a relatively short space of time. Jesus has certainly been true to His promise! May this almighty sign of God with us, lead souls to seek Him with sincere hearts, for He is very near.

Thank you, Lord Jesus!

FATIMA AND OUR LADY OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT

A.M.D.G

A Day With Our Lady of Fatima, 13th May 2017

PART 2 of a series of Fatima Centenary talks in 2017

For part 1 of this series see post dated 13th May, 2017. (On Home page, click “Archives” button and scroll down to May, 2017)    or press this link:  https://remnantdisciples.wordpress.com/2017/05/13/fatimas-message-more-relevant-than-ever-heavens-request-for-reparation/

FATIMA AND OUR LADY OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT:

Sign of hope and alert to danger

Today, the 13th of May, is a date that resonates with heavenly significance; it’s a date of singular importance in the recent history and future of the world.

One hundred years ago today, only seventeen years into the twentieth century, a terrible war was raging in Europe and a world-changing revolution was brewing in Russia…

And, in a remote little Portuguese hamlet, events of a spiritual kind were beginning to unfold. These events would culminate in a pre-announced Miracle to be witnessed by seventy thousand people: a public miracle unprecedented since Biblical times.

1.The sun plunged towards the earth and performed astonishing, almost-unbelievable gymnastics in the sky for fifteen long minutes, flooding the area of Fatima and 30 kilometres radius with a spectacular light show.

Photos still exist to this day of this phenomenal occasion.

So… a century ago, this very day, it all began.

But why the 13th of May? Why did Heaven reach down to three little shepherd children on this particular date?

Well, May, of course, has always been traditionally the special month for honouring the Mother of Christ. And while Jesus had selected twelve close followers to become the apostles of His newly-formed Church, there was always a 13th disciple quietly present in the background: His Blessed Mother Mary. She was that 13th disciple who had loved Him long before she’d even bore Him in Her womb.

There is a foreshadowing of Fatima, too, in the Old Testament and the 13th day of the month was central to that story as well. It features another Jewish maiden 2,400 years ago called Esther. When the ruling Persians of that time decreed that the Jewish race would be exterminated on the 13th of the month, Esther as Queen bravely interceded with the King to save God’s people.  The success of her intercession is still celebrated today among Jews everywhere with the holiday of Purim. And it is believed that the mysterious star which features on the gown of Our Lady of Fatima alludes to the biblical tale of Esther as the name “Esther” means literally “star”. There are so many parallels that the Fathers of the Church have conceded that Esther prefigures the role of Mary, Queen of Heaven, in our own times. We will come back to this a little later on.

Apart from all these speculative aspects about May 13ththis day used to be celebrated as the Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Eucharist… or, as it was known back in 1917, the Feast of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament. See, the Blessed Sacrament is an intrinsic part of the message of Fatima:

It would appear that the Divine but hidden presence of Christ our God in the Tabernacles of our churches and in Holy Communion was already being disregarded, neglected and abused by careless or deliberate sacrilege a century ago.

In the year before Our Lady’s appearance at Fatima, the three shepherd children Lucy, Jacinta and Francisco, age six, eight and ten, were being prepared for her visit by a special angelic emissary. The angel of peace, the Guardian of Portugal, later identified as St Michael, was schooling them in perfect postures of prayer, kneeling with the forehead touching the ground as they prayed: “Jesus I adore you in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.”

On his second visit the Angel gave Holy Communion to Lucy and the Precious Blood from a Chalice to Jacinta and Francisco“Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ,” he said, “horribly outraged by ungrateful men!”  He instructed them about the importance of making sacrifices and reparation for sins so as to console God.

And he taught them two prayers addressed to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

The first was to be repeated three times: “Oh my God, I believe in You, I adore You, I trust in You and I love You. I beg pardon for all those who do not believe, who do not adore, who do not trust and do not love You.

The second prayer is more telling in its implications. Kneeling prostrate before the consecrated Host and the Chalice which remained suspended in mid-air, the Angel showed them to pray:

“Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the Tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference with which He is offended. By the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I ask of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.”

Outrages, sacrileges, indifference: these three offenses directly target God Himself, and they are not peculiar to one hundred years ago.

Let’s look at these three specific offenses.

The first, Indifference:

Numerous visions, messages and locutions from Jesus and Mary reported in our own times often make reference to “indifference”. A prayer dictated to a modern seer includes the plea, “Forgive us for the sin of indifference.” Another similarly prescribed prayer from heaven says, “Show mercy and forgiveness for those souls who hurt Jesus with their indifference.”

In recently-published Fatima booklet called Jacinta’s Tears the author wrote, “Consider if you went to a lot of trouble to get a magnificent present for someone, putting your whole heart into it and going to great length to show your love for that person. If he or she took the gift as if it were nothing and didn’t even bother to thank you, I think you would feel very saddened and offended (….)  By sending His Angel at Fatima God is telling us a little bit of how He feels, offended by our indifferences” – being taken for granted, ignored in many instances.

In the famous Church-approved visions of the Sacred Heart to St Margaret Mary over three hundred years ago, Jesus told her that He is more offended by the lukewarm-ness of His friends than by the outrages of His enemies.  Aren’t we the same – more susceptible to being hurt by those we love than by those who hate us? And that’s simply because, with those we love, we have opened our hearts to them. So… far worse, then, than the general indifference of the world is what Jesus experiences from Catholics who are indifferent to His Presence in the “Divine Sacrament of Love”.

At Fatima, the Mother of Jesus taught the children a short prayer of adoration: “Most Holy Trinity, I adore Thee! My God, my God, I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the altar!”

The second offense requiring reparation is Outrages:

Historically, since Fatima, the outrages against Christ and His Body the Church have multiplied and intensified. There have been more martyrs in the last 100 years than in the first three centuries of persecution under the Roman Empire. From 1917 onwards, wherever Marxist revolution has takencontrol, the atrocities are incalculable – Russia, Spain, Eastern Europe, China, South America, Africa – endless places worldwide. And without fail, the Church has always become the avowed “enemy of the state”.  There was an incident in the Spanish Civil War of 1936 where a rebel solider coldly and deliberately fired a bullet through an exposed consecrated Host in a Church.

Today, the outrages are less dramatic perhaps, but they surface on all sides as the world distances itself more and more from religion and belief in God, to take up the banner of anti-Christian Marxist principles. Several weeks ago, on International Women’s Day, radical feminists attempted to set fire to the Cathedral of Buenos Aires. In our own liberal culture we hear of dubious works of “art” publicly displayed which boldly blaspheme God and the Virgin Mary. The name of Jesus Christ, used as a curse, has become part of our social vocabulary, in everyday life and in the cinema and theatre.

A movie just released in Atlanta, Georgia, portrays our Blessed Lady as a lesbian and ridicules her Virgin Birth. Gone are any boundaries, any sensitivity for what Christians hold holy; nothing any longer is sacred, all in the name of freedom of expression.

In France, 1843, a Carmellite sister, Sister Marie of Saint-Pierre (or St Peter) was given messages from Our Lord which enjoy the full approval of the Church. Marianologists say that these revelations, along with those of La Salette in 1846, form the foundation to the Fatima visitations of 1917.

Jesus told Sister Marie de St Peter, “My Name is blasphemed everywhere!” He made her understand that this frightful sin, more than any other, grievously wounds His Heart. With blasphemy the sinner curses Him to His Face, He said, attacking Him openly. “The earth is covered in crimes,” He went on, “The Holy name of God is blasphemed and the Holy Day of the Lord is profaned. At no time have these crimes reached such a pitch!”

Sister Marie de St Pierre begged Jesus to provide some confirmation of her revelations, and three years later her prayer was answered. Our Lady appeared at La Salette in France where she was seen weeping and distraught. Her tears, she said, were for “the utter contempt for God’s commandments, particularly the terrible crime of blasphemy and the profaning of the Lord’s Day. These two sins,” she explained, “break the second and third commandments.”

Jesus told Sister Marie de Saint-Peter, “The Jews crucified me on Friday, but Christians crucify me on Sunday.”

These words were spoken to a more God-fearing age 170 years ago, but aren’t they still applicable today – probably even more-so?  In the last thirty years in (… country named) Sunday trading, which we’ve all been guilty of enjoying, has contributed to the desecration of Sunday. And now, the authorities are looking at removing the shopping ban on Easter Sunday, the holiest of Sundays.

We know from various visionary sources that the taking of unborn life, the violation of the sanctuary of the womb, is an outrage in God’s eyes which invokes His justice – especially when the legalization of abortion has come from governments of nations that once were Christian. From the moment abortion was made lawful in the 1970s images of Our Lady worldwide began to weep tears of blood. Now, forty years and millions of abortions later, this so-called service has become accepted, institutionalized, even considered a human right. Our Lady spoke of the “errors of Russia”. Abortion is one of these errors, legalized in Russia in 1920.

At Fatima our Blessed Mother asked for the five First Saturdays to be kept as days of reparation for FIVE particular offenses and outrages. These are

(1) the mocking of her Perpetual Virginity;

(2) insults to her Divine Maternity;

(3) scorning her Immaculate Conception;

(4) the disrespect shown to her images and statues,

(5) the teaching of children by Christians that she, the pure vessel created by God to bring His Son into the world, was a sinner like everyone else.

Moving on to the third area of offense highlighted at Fatima, Sacrileges:  

Seven years ago today our previous Holy Father Pope Benedict gave a papal address to 500,000 pilgrims at Fatima which pointed out an uncomfortable fact: “Today,” he said, “we see in the most horrifying way, that the greatest persecution against the Church does not come from its enemies outside, but from the sins within; and that the Church has therefore a great need to re-learn penance. . .”

In the United States, from surveys conducted within the Church, Catholic journalist Michael Voris has brought to light some disturbing facts, and I quote: “One of the most central beliefs of the Catholic Church, the Real Presence that is, Jesus Christ present, really, truly, and substantially Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity under the appearance of bread and wine is believed by only half of all Catholics. Sixty per cent of American Catholics have succumbed to the culture of death and believe the Church is wrong on abortion. Over half of them believe individuals have the final say as to whether sex outside marriage is okay, not the Church. This is the Church established by the Son of God who will judge us on our deeds.”

This survey could well reflect a similar picture in most western countries, including our own, where a more relaxed, liberal spirit has come to exist.

Those who have seen the changes in the Church over the last few decades would agree that lack of respect and reverence is prevalent among us; this is aligned to the gradual erosion of devotion to the Real Presence; and a growing belief that sin is no longer a reality, just a human weakness that doesn’t really call for repentance or confession.  I was recently talking to an elderly woman, a Catholic convert of thirty years, who told me she has never once been to Confession – she didn’t see any need! This is someone who, sadly, has never been instructed sufficiently in the faith.  According to the American survey, a large percentage of the faithful are living in sinful situations and receiving Holy Communion; even seeing it as their “right”.

In a recent message to a holy soul in Argentina, the Blessed Virgin Mary is reported saying, “Woe to those who receive My Son improperly without repentance! They choose their eternal condemnation! Woe to those who commit sacrileges! Woe to those who mock the divine! They will know the pains of hell.” Strong words – but Our Lady is, after all, a loving mother who cares about our welfare and is firm in teaching the Christian essentials.

There’s another kind of sacrilege we need to be aware of, too. In our increasingly de-Christianized world, Black Masses are on the upsurge. Despite the deterrent of locked Tabernacles in our churches nowadays, the stealing of consecrated Hosts poses no problem to Satanists. With the trend of Communion in the hand more common in the last fifty years, we have actually made it easier for them to acquire Hosts to desecrate. An ex-Satanist high priest, now a fervent Catholic convert, revealed to us last year during his address here that (…city named) boasts the greatest number of satanic covens of all our (...country named) cities.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

In the closing vision of Fatima, 13th October 1917, after the Miracle of the Sun, the Virgin Mary came dressed in the religious habit of the Carmelites. This is an interesting final note. Apart from the fact that the visionary Lucy would eventually join the order of Mt Carmel, this could have established a link to a new series of apparitions that may well be a continuation of Fatima.

Is it just coincidence that in 1961, twelve months after the sealed envelope of Fatima’s Third Secret was opened and its contents kept secret, the Blessed Mother began appearing in earnest as Our Lady of Mt Carmel at another remote Catholic village, further north of Fatima in Spain? The amazing events at Garabandal lasted four long years and are still under investigation by the Church.

However, two urgent and major messages emerged from Garabandal.

The first spoke of the prime necessities of Catholic life, already mentioned at Fatima: “We must make many sacrifices… perform much penance… and …visit the Blessed Sacrament frequently…” The second message, given in 1965, said, Less and less importance is being given to the Eucharist. You should turn the wrath of God away from yourselves by your efforts…”

The Blessed Sacrament!Once again the focus! And this was emphasized by what became known as “the Little Miracle of Garabandal”. As at Fatima, the miracle was pre-announced, in this case fifteen days beforehand, and it occurred on the night of the patronal feast of the village.

While young visionary Conchita was being given invisible Holy Communion by an Angel, the Sacred Host became visible on her tongue. This event was witnessed by many onlookers and was captured on film.

Father Anthony Mary Prendergast of the Community of St John here in (…city named) published a wonderful little booklet two years ago on the Holy Eucharist. I’m lifting from there some inspirational quotes from four of the greatest saints in the Church’s history:

St John Chrysostom says, “When the Mass is celebrated, the sanctuary is filled with countless angels, including the Guardian Angel of each person present, all reverently worshipping their Lord and God.”

In the revelations of St Bridget, we read: “One day when I was assisting at the Holy Sacrifice, I saw an immense number of Holy Angels descend and gather around the altar, contemplating the priest. They sang heavenly canticles that ravished my heart. Heaven itself seemed to be contemplating the great sacrifice. And yet we poor, blind and miserable creatures assist at Mass with so little love, relish and respect! Oh, if God would open our eyes, what wonders should we not see?”

And St John Vianney, Cure of Ars: “All the good works in the world are not equal to the Holy sacrifice of the Mass because they are works of men, while the Mass is the work of God. Martyrdom is nothing in comparison, for it is but the sacrifice of men to God; but the Mass is the sacrifice of God for men.”

The favourite saint of many Catholics, the priest who bore the wounds of Christ for fifty years, Padre Pio, once wrote: “Every Mass heard with devotion produces in our souls marvelous effects, abundant spiritual and material graces which we, ourselves, do not know. It is easier for the earth to exist without the sun than without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.”

And the great Eucharistic saint, St Julian Eymard was famous for these words: “The Eucharist is not only the life of individual Christians; it is also the life of nations. A century advances or regresses to the extent to which the Most Holy Sacrament is adored.”

***********************

We live in times of huge unrest, of extremes, of momentous change, chaotic confusion and uncertainty: a faithless and perverse generation. Saint John Paul the Second at a Bishops gathering in France, in 1980, said that mankind faces a “mega-temptation”; that is, the temptation to think that man can save himself through science and technology; therefore Christ is to become obsolete. 

It was on the doorstep of this modern age that Mary, like a prophet of old, made her entrance at Fatima. Supposedly a new and more enlightened age, scientifically advanced, yet in the last hundred years since Fatima there have been more wars and casualties than in the entire known history of humanity. These are dangerous times to live; dangerous and deceptive times if you are a believer.

Fatima was a pre-warning for us, echoing the Old Testament times when the Jews turned their back on God and He sent prophets to awaken them to the consequences. And this returns us to the biblical narrative of Esther which I mentioned earlier. Queen Esther lived in Persia (modern day Iran) and when the entire population of the Jewish people were threatened with extermination on the 13th day of the month, she interceded with the King to save them.

Well, barely weeks after the Fatima apparitions ended in 1917, Holy Mother Russia (as she was called then) was seized by Marxist Communists. Millions upon millions of God’s people were wantonly slaughtered, clergy and consecrated religious humiliated and killed, churches closed.

During the Spanish Civil War which followed suit in 1936, the Red Terror made martyrs of over four thousand diocesan priests and seminarians, 2,500 monks, friars and nuns. And so the pattern has been repeated throughout the twentieth century and now into the 21st Century. Wherever Communist and anti-Christian ideology has arisen, genocide has followed.

The Third Secret of Fatima released at the turn of this century concerns a vision of a murdered bishop in white, along with the bodies of cardinals, bishops and laymen in a city of ruins with armed soldiers. It does suggest there’s still more to come yet, a global form of Marxist Communism which, unrecognized, could be stealthily gaining foothold around us. Militant atheism in all its varied guises, institutionalized and politicized, remains humanity’s gravest enemy, diametrically opposed to true faith and religion.

At Fatima we were forewarned by the Mother of Salvation, If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace. If not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, stirring up revolutions, and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer; several nations will be annihilated.”

At present, persecution of Christians is on the rise. According to the Turin-based Centre for Studies, CENSUR, Christians are the most targeted religious group in the world. In the fiscal year of 2016 just gone, over ninety thousand Christians were murdered for their faith and 500 to 600 million were otherwise persecuted in such ways as imprisonment, abductions, economic restrictions, destruction of property and loss of personal rights.

These statistics surprise those of us who live relatively peaceful and comfortable lives in (…country named) because the media seldom reports on this issue. An Iraqi priest now living in (…city), Father (…  name) , has told us of hundreds of thousands of Chaldean Catholics murdered by Islamic Fundamentalists in Iraq and Syria. The Christian population of his homeland has been decimated from two million to less than 200,000 today.

I mention these facts and figures not to frighten anyone but just to make us aware of how serious the situation is one hundred years after Fatima.

There can be no hiding from the prophecy delivered from heaven that some nations (according to the repeated words of Our Lady to Sister Lucy) could disappear from the face of the earthsomething quite conceivable in the present international climate. Like Queen Esther, however, our Blessed Mother is interceding for us and with our co-operation, will succeed in bringing peace to our troubled world. We must hold fast to that hope, increasing our prayers and efforts, our sacrifices and penance, which can help mitigate the severity of events.

To combat all the evils of today Mother Mary has given us three weapons: number one, the daily Rosaryand at Fatima Lucy was told that  God has invested this ancient prayer with extra power for spiritual warfare when the devil appears to be gaining the upper hand; number two, the Five First Saturday Communions of Reparation; and three, the consecration of Russia named specificallywhich we are still awaiting and praying for – and personal consecration and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Ultimately, we are assured that Mary’s Immaculate Heart WILL triumph. That triumph, we must remember, begins in individual hearts, and when people give up their Saturday, like all of you today, to come and honour the Blessed Mother, the first fruits of that triumph are already evident. It isn’t a numbers game. It never has been. The few, the devoted, can make a vast difference!

On this special day, which a hundred years ago was the feast of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament, please pray in the words of Pope St Pius X, “O Virgin Mary, Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament, inspire in all Christians a deep devotion for the Most Blessed Sacrament so that they may become worthy to receive Him daily”.

Comment by (R.S.): Watch out for the 3rd instalment of this series of talks on Fatima and the Russian connection

 

The Easter Sunday Miracle

At the bottom of this article is the full video of  Rita’s story about the amazing miracle which The Lord gave in Darwin, Australia, on Easter Sunday, 2014.  It includes extracts from the Book of Truth messages which are very touching. Most of us are all amateurs in using technology, and the documentation of the account and witnesses was spontaneous, but any person who has been touched by the messages in The Book of Truth can relate to these emotions and knows the witnesses are very genuine in their reactions.

The post says that the miracle was seen by and approved by the Bishop. This is true. The oil which appeared all over Rita as she began to read the Sunday scripture, was scientifically tested and found to be parrafin oil, which is odourless and smokeless. It is traditionally used to light the Sanctuary lamp in Churches, which is lit to indicate the Lord’s Holy Presence. Only this miraculous oil (most people who have been in contact with it, say) exudes a beautiful inexplicable perfume, like exquisite Roses. It was what I, myself, immediately noticed upon opening a packet with Rosary beads that had been touched to the oil. Although the miracle itself was proven to be genuine, please realize that the bishop has no authority to make a decision approving the Book of Truth or The Seal of the Living God and, of course, has not done so. No bishop can, as they do not have the power to do so and there has been no proper or formal investigation by any bishop. What has been offered by some bishops so far are only opinions and they vary. Some even simply go off the opinions of others,  without having read the messages for themselves. However, as a private revelation, we can, and should, discern. If this is actually God’s prophet, speaking at His Command, sent to to prepare us for the reign of the Anti-Christ and His Second Coming, we must take this discernment very seriously. These are no small prophecies. They are of great and serious matter; most significant and most urgent; the most significant prophecies of this century.

Paul, who filmed Rita & the eye witnesses, adds his own witness about the video below:

“This amazing miracle occurred in a church on Easter Sunday and was witnessed by the congregation, four priests and the bishop, who approved the miracle.

To find the Messages from Jesus and His mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Salvation, google search “the Book of Truth PDF” and for the special prayers dictated by Jesus especially for us in these difficult times, google search “Crusade Prayers PDF”.

When I heard about this miracle I knew that it was significant and needed to be documented and recorded so I spent two weekends with my smart phone video recorder and took the testimonials of Rita, followed by the some of the witnesses from this small rural church in the outback of Northern Australia.

All of the people I recorded for this production were not asked questions. I was just lead to a number of different people, pointed my camera and recorded what they had to say. This meant that I didn’t fully understand myself before I started filming the extent of what happened that day. All the testimonials you will see were made in one take.

In addition, I started to read the Book of Truth when I heard about this miracle was directly related to this Book. It was very moving for me to realise that these words were profound in a way that is difficult to explain. Its as if you are hearing the Voice of someone who knows you and understands you perfectly, the Voice of Jesus – and thats just what it is because Jesus is now reaching out to the world through the end times prophet, Maria Divine Mercy, of this I have no doubt.

Try it yourself, read the messages with an open heart, if you dare, and see how the words there come with a power that comes from the Holy Spirit.

We are reminded in the Bible about the risk of not listening to prophets- Always, God’s prophets were rejected and defamed. Why is this? How knows, but we do know that in the Bible we are told that there would be an end times prophet, a 7th Messenger.

Some of you may doubt that we are living in end times, that is the time before the Great Second Coming of Jesus to restore His magnificent Kingdom where we will be happy beyond our dreams forever. If you are in this camp, I encourage you to start with the Book of Revelations in the Bible, then look on the internet for videos about the end times, and signs that they are now upon us, and you will see that all the signs are there…

You may think that it is only ignorant people who have such a view but don’t be so sure. If you are correct in so thinking then it does not hurt to explore the possibility that there is more going on than you are aware of.

I was in that same mind frame until recently when I started studying events in the world not just as they are presented in the main stream media.

And read the Book of Truth with an open mind, remember that a number of things predicted in the Book of Truth have already happened in the last few years, but more changes are ahead of us in the very, very near future…

These changes are critical and we must be ready both spiritually and materially, not just for the Great Second Coming but for the difficult times ahead which are designed to purify us and prepare us so that we repent and are made worthy to enter those Glorious Gates, the Gates of pearl, as described in the Bible.
God bless.”
