There have been many miracles of the Eucharist in the last 2000 years. The one that might be the most well known is that of the miracle of Lanciano.

In the 8th century AD, a Basilian monk doubted the True Presence. During Mass, at the Consecration, the Host started to bleed. The wine also changed and eventually formed into 5 lumps of coagulated Blood, all different sizes. These can still be seen preserved in the church at Lanciano, Italy today.

In the 1970’s a scientific investigation was carried out, without the scientist knowing where the fragment had come from. The results (and pictures of various stages of the investigation)  can be seen in the church today.

It was conducted by Prof. Odoardo Linoli, eminent Professor in Anatomy and Pathological Histology and in Chemistry and Clinical Microscopy. He was assisted by Prof. Ruggero Bertelli of the University of Siena.

These analyses sustained the following conclusions:

      • The Flesh is real Flesh. The Blood is real Blood.
      • The Flesh and the Blood belong to the human species.
      • The Flesh consists of the muscular tissue of the heart.
      • In the Flesh we see present in section: the myocardium, the endocardium, the vagus nerve and also the left ventricle of the heart for the large thickness of the myocardium.
      • The Flesh is a “HEART” complete in its essential structure.
      • The Flesh and the Blood have the same blood-type: AB (Blood-type identical to that which Prof. Baima Bollone uncovered in the Holy Shroud of Turin).
      • In the Blood there were found proteins in the same normal proportions (percentage-wise) as are found in the sero-proteic make-up of fresh normal blood (although the anaylsis was performed centuries later).
      • In the Blood there were also found these minerals: chlorides, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium.
      • The preservation of the Flesh and of the Blood, which were left in their natural state for twelve centuries, and exposed to the action of atmospheric and biological agents, remains an extraordinary phenomenon. They remain to this day.

At Lanciano, there is a side room where Newspaper articles and the various results and pictures of slides from the scientific investigation can be seen.

I have also read elsewhere, that the lumps of Blood, each of a different size, all weighed exactly the same , and when weighed all together, still weighed the same!

This affirms for us that the Holy Eucharist is the Sacred Heart of Jesus

In actual fact, many other authentic Eucharistic miracles also exist.

When we receive Jesus in Holy Communion, we are filled with His Love and Peace. Our Divine King, humbles Himself to become one with us. Receive Jesus frequently, with a pure heart, in order to obtain great graces and eternal life. He loves us so much!

But he is not loved in return!!!

The Sacred Heart and St Margaret Mary Alacoque (1600’s)

The first revelation occurred on December 27th, 1673, when Sister Margaret Mary, was praying before the Blessed Sacrament. Our Lord revealed to her great secrets of His love, represented by His Sacred Heart.

The 3rd revelation occurred in June, 1674. Sr Margaret Mary was adoring the Blessed Sacrament. He told her how greatly He loved mankind (suffering and dying for them). But then He said that in return for this Great Love, He has only received ingratitude and contempt. The only return He receives for His eagerness to love mankind is rejection and coldness.

The 4th revelation  took place in June, 1675. Again, Margaret Mary was praying before the Blessed Sacrament, when our Lord showed her His Sacred Heart. He said:

Behold the Heart which has so loved men that it has spared nothing, even to exhausting and consuming Itself, in order to testify Its love; and in return, I receive from the greater part only ingratitude, by their irreverence and sacrilege, and by the coldness and contempt they have for Me in the Eucharist. But what I feel most keenly is that it is hearts which are consecrated to Me that treat Me thus.”

Jesus requested that we honor His Sacred Heart and make reparation to it; and to make reparation for disrespect towards the Blessed Sacrament.

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

When we receive Holy Communion –
we receive the True Presence of Jesus
with His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.

We receive the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

 

Jesus meek and humble of Heart, make our hearts like unto Thine!

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

Let us stay close to Jesus’ Sacred Heart – His Eucharistic Heart in the Blessed Sacrament!

We live in difficult times. Time spent with Jesus before the Blessed Sacrament is vital. On Holy Thursday, Jesus asked 3 of His Apostles to watch and wait with Him, but they fell asleep. Jesus needs us again at this time. We do not want to let Him down. In the following message from the Book of Truth, Jesus tells us of the benefits of Adoration.

Abundant love at adoration makes you stronger and calmer

12 June 2011 @ 7:00pm

“My beloved daughter, the graces received by My children at the Eucharistic Adoration are powerful. They not only give you the graces to cope with life’s suffering, they make you stronger in your love for Me, your devoted and loyal Saviour.

The love that is poured out over souls during the Adoration is given in abundance. The soul feels this flood of My graces in so many different ways. The first Gift is one of peace in your soul. You will feel this instantly after you have completed your time in close union with Me.

So many, many of My children are denying themselves the many Gifts I have to offer at Adoration, where you spend one hour of your time before My Presence on the altar. While Catholics are aware of the Power of the Eucharist many do not acknowledge the importance of this most important time with Me in contemplation. They simply ignore this Gift. It bores them to have to spend this extra time with Me.

Oh, if only you knew how strong this would make them. Their fears and worries would be dissipated were they to just keep Me company in quiet intimate reflection. If My children could see the Light that envelops their souls during this special Holy Hour, they would be astonished.

Children, it is during this hour that you become very, very close to Me. This is where your voice, your pleas, your pledges of love for Me, will be heard. Many wonderful graces are given to you, children, at this time, so please do not ignore My pleas to spend this time in My company.

The rewards will make you free of worry
The rewards will make you free of worry, light of heart, mind and soul, and calmer in yourself. When you receive Me during the Eucharist I will fill your soul. But when you come to Me in Adoration I will envelop you to such an extent, that the floodgates of My Merciful Love will saturate your mind, body and soul. You will feel a strength, which will yield a quiet confidence that you will find difficult to ignore.

Come to Me, children, now. I need your company. I need you to speak with Me when My Divine Presence is at its strongest. I love you and want to pour all My graces on you, so you can infuse your souls to My Sacred Heart.

Your loving Saviour
Jesus Christ”

The Importance of the Eucharist: Part 1 – Our Lady’s Apparitions

AM+DG

CCC on the Eucharist:

No. 1324:The Eucharist is ‘the source and summit of the Christian life.’(Lumen Gentium 11) The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministeries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch.”

Part 1:

Many of Our Lady’s apparitions have a Eucharistic component (as messages, healings, or events).

Garabandal  1961-1965

Messages:

  • Our Lady told them the children that they must visit the Blessed Sacrament frequently  and often led them there.
  • Our Lady told Conchita that it was a greater grace to receive Jesus (in Holy Communion) than to see her.
  • In the last apparition on 13th November (note the date is 13th) 1965 Our Lady said:

 “Conchita, why do you not visit my Son more often in the tabernacle? He waits for you there day and night.”

Signs and Miracles: 

  • Our Lady had promised Conchita a miracle to convince the people about the authenticity of the apparitions. It was in the end, it was a Eucharistic miracle.
  • The people often would see the children with their mouths open. They explained that they were receiving communion from St. Michael. The people of course did not see the Communion Host, except for the above occasion.
  • On one occasion, many people were gathered waiting for the promised miracle. Conchita had her mouth open (as usual) to receive Communion, when suddenly a white host materialised on her tongue. This event was filmed and photographed by the people which had gathered there to witness the promised miracle. Footage of it can be seen on videos explaining the story of Garabandal, and just recently in “Garabandal – Only God knows” and “Garabandal – Unstoppable Cascade”.
  • Our Lady promised that at a later date, there would be a great miracle. This would take place at the pines (the pine trees on top of the hill near the village, where many apparitions took place). It would be on the feast of a Eucharistic martyr and Conchita would announce it 8 days beforehand. People in Garabandal at the time, will be healed. It would take place within 12 months of the Warning .

Other Eucharistic influences:

  • The Garabandal visionaries are most active in promoting obedience to traditional Catholic teaching on marriage and on Eucharistic and Marian devotionsthan on future events.
  • The visionaries and the villagers have grown closer to God and lead their lives in strict orthodoxy.

Fatima 1917

Eucharistic influences:

  • The miracle of the sun is usually interpreted as a sign of the Eucharist.
  • During the third apparition, the Angel of Portugal appeared holding a chalice. The children were asked to say an Act of Faith in God. Into the chalice fell drops of blood, suspended above it.
  • The angel then left the chalice and Host suspended, and prostrated himself with the children repeating the prayer to the Trinity, requesting the salvation of souls and reparation through the merits of the Body and Blood of Jesus.
  • The angel took the chalice, gave the Host to Lucy, and the contents of the chalice to Jacinta and Francisco saying  “Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, who is horribly insulted by ungrateful men. Make reparation for their crimes and console your God.”

Knock, Ireland   1879

This apparition on the 21st August was seen by 15 people over a period of a few hours. The age of the people ranged from 6 to 75, and included men and women. The public vision included Our Lady, St. Joseph, St. John the Evangelist (as a Bishop), and a Lamb on the altar, with a Cross behind it; angels hovering around it. No words were spoken

Eucharistic signs and events:

  • The Lamb on the altar and the Cross behind it was the central focus of the apparition. This symbolised the Sacrifice of Calvary taking place at each Mass. This was the brightest part of the apparition.
  • The angels hovering around the altar is a reminder that they are present at every Mass.
  • Our Lady, St Joseph and St. John were in an attitude of prayer, positioned on the side.
  • Archdeacon Kavanagh, the Parish priest, had been saying 100 Masses for the souls in purgatory. The apparition took place on the day of the last Mass.
  • The apparition took place on the gable wall of the parish church which points to the Eucharist.

Miracles

  • Many miraculous cures have taken place at Knock. Marian Carroll was instantly cured of Multiple Sclerosis in 1989 after receiving Holy Communion during Mass, in the Basilica at Knock. She had been placed under Our Lady s statue. She could not walk, had partial use of only one hand, had partial sight in only one eye, her swallowing and speech was affected and she was doubly incontinent. After Communion, she could walk and speak and had full use of her arms. 

Father Gobbi: 1973 – 1997.

Messages to Father Gobbi (an Italian priest) occurred whilst on pilgrimage to Fatima;- while he was praying for priests who had given up their vocations and who were forming themselves into groups of rebellion against the Church’s authority.

Message:

  • Above all the cause of my weeping is the priests: those beloved sons, the apple of my eye, these consecrated sons of mine. Do you see how they no longer love me? How they no longer want me? Do you see how they no longer listen to the words of my Son? How they frequently betray him? How Jesus present in the Eucharist is ignored by many, left alone in the tabernacle; often sacrilegiously offended by them, with wanton negligence?

 

John Bosco (1815 – 1888)

His famous prophetic dream depicts a ship in a storm at sea. Enemy boats were trying to attack and sink the ship. The Captain dressed in white was first wounded then killed, while trying to steer the ship towards two pillars. On one of these stood Our Lady, and on the other a Eucharistic Host.

On top of one pillar is the Immaculate Virgin, with a placard at her feet which says  Mary, Help of Christians ; on the other pillar which is much higher and bigger, stands a Host of great proportions with the words: Salvation of believers.

Akita: 1973-1979

Eucharist influences:

  • In May 1973, she was transferred to a community where the Blessed Sacrament is adored in a spirit of atonement.
  • In June 1973, when Sr. Agnes approached the tabernacle, she saw brilliant rays of light emanating from it. Over the next two days it happened again.
  • On June 28, she said “Beside the light, all around the altar, countless angels were adoring the Holy Eucharist.”
  • Bishop Ho told her to be humble, at peace and to meditate well on the Blessed Sacrament.
  • On June 28, a cross-shaped wound (the stigmata) developed on her left hand, bleeding profusely on Friday, but by Sunday, it had disappeared.

Miracle Healing:

Sr. Agnes lost her hearing in March 1973, and was diagnosed with incurable deafness. On 30th May, 1982, Sr Agnes deafness was cured, after praying 3 Rosaries, as directed by her guardian angel. This occurred instantly and completely, during Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

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

Our Lady and the Eucharist are inseparable. She herself was the Ark of the Covenant. She is always there with her Son. She is our Mother also, and guides us. In her apparitions, there is always Eucharistic influence, or events, or miracles.

Our Lady said to Conchita at Garabandal:

“Conchita, why do you not visit my Son more often in the tabernacle? He waits for you there day and night.”

The Events of Garabandal: NEW movie series

I have long been touched by the stories of what occurred in San Sebastian De Garabandal between 1961 and 1965. I originally watched an older, documentary style movie with black and white film footage when I was a younger woman. It had a big impact on me at a time that I was seeking to come closer to God; the film gave me much needed hope in a God who has not forgotten His people and continues to bless the world with signs and miracles– to those with hearts open enough to believe.

My mum, sister and young niece visited Garabandal in the 1990’s and no-one who goes, can help but be touched by the authenticity and simplicity of life and the Faith of this small, not well-to-do village. It was the perfect place to receive healing and answers to prayer. The many photos mum took on her old analogue camera chronicle the experience and she can recall many facts from the places she visited, for anyone who sits down long enough to hear about their trip there.

In more recent years,  new connections popped up with Spain, on a personal level. My son entered high school and quickly learnt to love his Spanish language lessons, culminating in a student exchange program to Spain, among other things. I made friends with a couple of families in Spain and I read an amazing book by Fr. Jose Luis Saveedra: Garabandal: Message of Hope”. Part of this was refuelled by a renewed interest in Garabandal and The Warning’ in particular, because it is mentioned in the Book of Truth. Very few modern apparitions are mentioned in The Book of Truth (many more warnings are given about false prophets, which in these End-Times, will surge in their thousands) but on 24th January, 2014, Our Blessed Mother of Salvation gave this message: (reproduced below the link in full)

https://missionofsalvation.com/message-1025/

My dear child, let it be known that I will make one more appearance at all the Marian grottos, which were approved by my Son’s Church, over the centuries.

I will make myself known in Sacred sites, which will include Lourdes, Fatima, La Salette and Guadalupe. I will also appear at Garabandal. These apparitions will begin this Spring, just as my Son has instructed.

I will be seen, by chosen souls, with the sun behind my head. There will be twelve stars encircled and woven around the crown of thorns, which was worn by my Son during His Crucifixion, placed upon my head, as a sign for all to follow my example. My role is to lead all of God’s children along the Path of Truth and take them to my Son.

When these apparitions take place, there will be no doubt, especially amongst those who pay homage to me, that I speak the Truth when I say that soon the final Path, which will bring you to my Son, in these the end times, will be through the Book of Truth.

When you follow me, your Mother, I will take you and guide you towards my Son. My Son has promised many miracles, so that He can open your eyes to the prophecies He gave the world, through my own Mission. Many do not accept that I appeared at these special apparition sites and dismiss their importance in the salvation of souls.

When I appear one last time at these sites and present myself as the Mother of Salvation, you will know then that this Mission is my last and that all apparitions lead to this final one to bring the world the Salvation, which is the birthright of every single person.

Rejoice, for these days are close and when you hear of these things, then know that this prophecy, when fulfilled, could only have come from me, your beloved Mother, the Mother of Salvation, Mother of God.

Your beloved Mother

By this message, heaven confirms that the events at Garabandal truly did include heavenly visions and messages. All the other places mentioned (Lourdes, Fatima, La Salette and Guadalupe) already enjoy formal church approval but special, separate mention is made of Garabandal. The chosen souls to whom Blessed Mother has blessed (or will bless) with another last appearance, beginning with at least one in Spring 2014, know the truth of these events.

Blessed Mother also decries in the message above, that “Many do not accept that I appeared at these special apparition sites and dismiss their importance in the salvation of souls.” We are not one of those who do this. In an effort to spread the messages given by Our Blessed Mother, to warn us, her ungrateful children, out of her great love for us, a wonderful group of people in Spain, gave up their time, talents and money, as volunteers, to produce a really credible, recreated portrayal of the events at Garabandal in narrative style. It had a small budget but Our Lord’s Blessing and its aim was to show the all the events and controversy so you can make up your own mind and be drawn to read the messages:- so that Our Lady’s messages can be better known in Spain and throughout the whole world!

The new movie: Garabandal: Only God Knows which has very recently been released for free on YouTube, after airing over Easter as a limited release in many countries. My friends, relatives, children and myself watched it at that time and felt it very much worth our time. It is also able to be purchased on DVD in many countries.

More information is available here at the official movie site: https://www.garabandalthemovie.com/en/garabandal/websites

Recommendations:

I highly recommend this first movie in the series. It does not shy away from representing the controversy surrounding the events and I think this lends it greater authenticity.

Make sure you have time and space to absorb, reflect and take in this movie, while you watch it.  Even if you think you know the events and what happened, you will have not see it like this. Many of those who watched it were brought to tears at one or more points in the movie…a beautiful prayer group member (a fellow Crusader) said that afterwards he cried like a baby…

On July 2nd, 7pm (EST) the sequel will also air for free in Australia and some other countries for a limited time. This is the information and trailer from the promoters:

In the film “Garabandal, Only God Knows” we saw how the first commission failed to carry out a real investigation of the events taken place in San Sebastian. Through interviewing eyewitnesses, “Garabandal, Uncontainable Cascade” provides never-before-published information about the second commission and why the apparitions of Our Lady in Garabandal are still awaiting an authentic investigation.
On July 2, 2020 at 19:00 EST, Garabandal, Uncontainable Cascade will premiere online free of charge on our YouTube channel: https://bit.ly/UncontainableCascadeTrailer

Here is the first movie: Garabandal: Only God Knows with English audio. It is also available in Spanish with English subtitles or several other languages if you search.

God bless your watching!

 

Thoughts for the 8th Day of Christmas: St Francis’ apparition of Baby Jesus at the First Nativity Scene

AM+DG

 

FRANCIS’ VISION OF THE CHILD JESUS

The first nativity scene is also associated with an apparition of the Baby Jesus to those gathered with St. Francis on that day. This must have been Jesus’ way of giving his praise and blessing to the nativity scene, which was a novelty in its time and had never been done before.

Again, St. Bonaventure continues the story,

“A certain valiant and veracious soldier, Master John of Grecio, who, for the love of Christ, had left the warfare of this world, and become a dear friend of this holy man, affirmed that he beheld an Infant marvellously beautiful, sleeping in the manger, Whom the blessed Father Francis embraced with both his arms, as if he would awake Him from sleep.

This vision of the devout soldier is credible, not only by reason of the sanctity of him that saw it, but by reason of the miracles which afterwards confirmed its truth.

For example of Francis, if it be considered by the world, is doubtless sufficient to excite all hearts which are negligent in the faith of Christ; and the hay of that manger, being preserved by the people, miraculously cured all diseases of cattle, and many other pestilences; God thus in all things glorifying his servant, and witnessing to the great efficacy of his holy prayers by manifest prodigies and miracles.”

THE SPREAD OF THE DEVOTION

St. Francis’ recreation of that first Christmas night was so popular that soon every church in Italy had its own nativity scene. The devotion also spread to private homes, and in modern times even to secular institutions, so much so that it’s now impossible to imagine Christmas without a nativity scene to behold.

Hopefully this story of the first nativity scene will inspire you to see your nativity set as much more than just as a pretty Christmas decoration. It is a historic Catholic tradition and a tool for meditation on the humility, simplicity, and poverty of Christ that he took on, from the moment of his Incarnation, out of his boundless love for his lost sheep.

JtM Crusade Prayer Meeting on Thus. 19th Sept. 2019

AM+DG

Prayer Theme: Special Graces

Prayers are Groups A & D: (See https://remnantdisciplesjtm.com/crusade-prayer-group-format/ for details).

(N.B. The prayer theme is chronological, and all the readings are chosen by volunteers and the books opened randomly after a prayer by the whole prayer group to the Holy Spirit (i.e. Crusade Prayer 51)

Comment: The readings today speak of  special blessings: being cleansed, angels to guide us, warnings against New Age angels (fallen angels), an outpouring of the Holy spirit on the earth, and His Warning of punishment to those who do evil against His children and those who denounce His teachings, twist the Truth or reject Him.

Readings

Bible: Matthew 8 :1- 4

Book of Truth: 30 Nov. 2014

Book of Truth: 15 May. 2013

Bible Reading

Matthew 8:1-4

The Cleansing of a Leper. When Jesus came down from the mountain, great crowds followed him.  And then a leper approached, did him homage, and said, “Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean.He stretched out his hand, touched him, and said, “I will do it. Be made clean.” His leprosy was cleansed immediately. Then Jesus said to him, “See that you tell no one, but go show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses prescribed; that will be proof for them.

Reflection (1) on the  Bible reading:

This reading had a special meaning for us – perhaps because of recent laws implemented here against the Seal of Confession. The Cleansing of the Leper was not just a miracle about physical healing. It explained healing of the soul –  i.e. forgiveness of sin. The leper represents the leprous soul of the sinner . The leper had to ask Jesus to be cleansed , and he did this with a humble attitude. Jesus then stretched out his Hand – signifying the hands of the priest, (who represents Christ) who stretches out his hand in absolution of the sinner.

The Spiritual healing (cleansing) involves more than the physical healing. In order to prove that he was sincere, the leper had to show himself to the priest and offer the gift that Moses prescribed. This represents the “penance” the sinner is instructed to do after confession and absolution. It was something he had to do – it was a requirement of the cleansing – it involves humility, but also joy, and thanksgiving.

Reflection (2) on the  Bible reading:

Crowds were following Jesus and there would have been many in need of healing in one way or another but one man stands out. This story seems to me to be like a prototype for Confession.

In this miracle Jesus shows that spiritual healing is far more important than physical, and harder to do. In this event, I reflected that Jesus could have healed this man from a distance (as with the Centurion’s servant) but instead he allows the man to “draw near”, hears him, responds mercifully, and heals him- of his leprosy. Afterwards, he asks that the man tell no-one else but go straight to the “priest”, show his healing, give the prescribed thanks and make the appropriate sacrifice. I thought of how we have spiritual leprosy; it is prevalent today and so I can see the Sacrament of Reconciliation being demonstrated in this story.

Jesus requires we come close to Him and request healing. We are asked to go to the priest to confess- but it is Jesus who grants the forgiveness and healing (through the priest). We are then to offer appropriate penance and thanksgiving and show, by our life, that we have been made clean. This is like what Jesus instructs the leper to do.

 In this way, we then are witnesses to the priest (and others) of the miraculous help God gives us through the Sacrament of Confession. How many complete conversions and turn-arounds these priests witness through this Great Sacrament! Jesus says to us too, when we ask, “Of course I want to heal you!” And it said with such Love.

Readings from the Book of Truth

Mother of Salvation: God’s angels can be asked to pray for you but never to grant you powers

30 November 2014 @ 5:20pm

My dear children, you must never pray to God’s angels, for they are His servants and strive only to give glory to God and to do His Most Holy Will.  Prayer is an act of worship and when you call on God’s angels, within His Heavenly Hierarchy, it must always be with the intention of asking them to pray for you.  If you try to communicate with the Heavenly Hierarchy of Angels, then it must only be to ask for their assistance and guidance so that you can do God’s Most Holy Will.

To those of you who believe that you will receive powers from God’s angels then you are mistaken. The power given to angels can come only from God and you must never use them as a substitute for praying to Him. So many souls try to communicate with angels today for selfish reasons and to obtain powers that have nothing to do with God. An obsession with angels can lead to a terrible discontent because this can attract the spirit of evil if you are not careful.

When calling on God’s angels to help you, you must always bless yourself first with Holy Water and then ask them for assistance, in the name of Jesus Christ. If you do not do this and use any object, which is not associated with Christianity, when calling on angels for their help, then this could invite the spirit of evil into your life. Once this happens you will find it almost impossible to eradicate it.

A pre-occupation with communicating with angels can lead to dabbling in the occult. Once this happens, you will attract those angels who were cast out of Heaven by my Heavenly Father. They now roam the earth in the hundreds of thousands, seeking a home. Souls who leave themselves open to their influence can quickly become entangled in a spiritual world that is not of God. Once you embrace the underworld, you will have no peace. These fallen angels will entice you into a web of deceit. First of all you will feel a sense of hope and then a belief that you can control all aspects of your life, with the help of such angels. Eventually you will, mistakenly believe that you are in full control of your own destiny. Every false notion of peace will fill your minds but, soon afterwards, you will feel a terrible wretchedness.

Dabbling with such spirits that you believe to be angels of God, but who do not belong in His Kingdom, will lead you into engaging with the occult, which will blind you to the Truth and destroy your soul.

God does not grant His angels permission to give you gifts because these can only come from Him. God’s angels can be asked to pray for you but never to grant you worldly goods or spiritual powers. When you idolize angels and seek out these things you are guilty of breaking the First Commandment of God.

God the Father: My Great Intervention to save humanity has commenced and the speed of My actions will be evident to all

15 May 2013 @ 4:40pm

My dearest daughter, the Spirit of God is being poured over the Earth in a way in which it has not been done before.

In order to prepare My dear children for the New Paradise, which lies waiting for them, I envelop them with the Spirit of Truth. Some will accept it, with open arms, and be grateful for such blessings. Others will refuse because they will not open their hearts.

My Great Intervention to save humanity has commenced and the speed of My actions will be evident to all. The miracles, permitted by Me, your Almighty Father, will be widespread and talked about. These will bring about more conversion. Then, just as the Spirit of My Love spreads, the actions by the evil one and his cohorts will increase.

My Hand will stop the evil actions of those who try to inflict war, disease, murder and abortion upon My children. My Hand will fall also on those who torment the loyal followers of My beloved Son and those who try to abolish His Presence in the Holy Eucharist.

Hear now My Call. All of My children will be drawn towards My Mercy. Those who reject My Son, reject Me. Those who insult My Son cannot come to Me. Those who denounce His Teachings and twist the Truth, reject My Existence. You cannot create your own laws and obey Me. Nor may you condone sin and expect to see My Face.

If sin does not decrease, I will punish those nations who are responsible for sins, which offend Me. Just as My Holy Spirit continues unabated, so also will My Intervention be to prevent sin from spreading.

All these changes will be seen at the same time. Soon afterwards, when every attempt by My Son, through His Church and His disciples, has been made to spread the Truth, the day will come when My Son’s Great Mercy will fall upon mankind. Then, not long after that, will come the Day of Judgement.

Prepare, My children, now for the day can come at any time. Only those who obey My Commandments, and show remorse for their sins, can and will be saved.

Your beloved Father

God the Most High

The Greatest Miracles will be Conversions: Monica’s Story

Monica’s Conversion Story

(Translated and disseminated by Jesus to Mankind Crusade Prayer Warrior- Paul M. The subheadings have been inserted by managers of this site as well as the highlighting).

My name is Monica Stancu and I live in Romania. This is a true story about how Jesus changed my life. I now believe that every conversion is, in fact, a miracle ! The best decision I have ever made was to follow Jesus. To begin, I would like to share with you about the ‘old’ Monica.

The ‘Old  Monica’

I was baptized into the Orthodox Church and as a young girl I would sometimes accompany my mother to Mass because she is a Catholic. As a family we did not practice our faith and we attended church very rarely ! Looking back on my thirty-four years of life to date, it’s been a disaster. I’ve broken all of the Ten Commandments; living a care-free life as though God didn’t exist. Unbeknown to me during this time, I was being blinded by Satan. I was not aware that in my sinfulness, I was offending God. One thing I did know is that life for me had become miserable !

During 2012, I was experiencing a crisis with professional and financial problems. I felt trapped. Things were going from bad to worse. My friend in Germany was experiencing similar problems to me and we had discussions about how we could solve our problems. In June 2013, I made a decision to begin attending Mass on most Sundays. It was a comfort for me, although I understood very little about the Catholic faith. During this time, I continued with my worldly and sinful ways because I didn’t know any better. Most of my friends were Protestant and one was Catholic; although later even he became Protestant. When we were together, God became our main topic of conversation and we had many long discussions. At that time I had begun searching for the truth. I probed my friends with many questions and as you know Protestants have many optimistic views about Christianity and this captured my attention. They invited me to their church and I obliged. They offered me many books and literature for me to read, including one written by Joel Osteen, and I knew that they were trying to convert me to Protestantism.

The search

Deep in my heart I knew something wasn’t right, so I began reading the Bible but I understood very little and I had a strange feeling in my stomach, which made me feel bad. I continued opening the Bible at random although the feelings continued and I would often close it again after a matter of minutes. I was searching for a story about someone like me and I couldn’t find it. Everything seemed ‘too deep’ for me to understand. Things took a turn for the better when, one day, I began reading the Book of Revelation. It was very confusing for me and I may as well have been trying to read Chinese.

Then my imagination was sparked to look on the internet for interpretations about what I had been reading. Scrolling down the various web pages, I came across some beautiful prayers and I downloaded them for later. Accompanying these prayers was information about a certain ‘Book of Truth. I began reading; one message after another… I couldn’t stop. I was absorbing everything like a sponge and I couldn’t get enough of everything. The prayers too, were so beautiful.

A book changed everything!

For the first time I knew that my heart had be touched by something BIG. I couldn’t resist staying away from the messages, even for one day. With this new-found prophecy, I began sharing everything about the Book of Truth with my good friend in Germany, and I asked him if it was possible for us to change our lives and to live as God wanted. His answer was that I should beware of becoming ‘extreme’ in my faith. I continued reading every message in the Book of Truth, as I believed every word was coming from Heaven. I began praying the prayers which I love. I was learning my Catholic faith from the Book of Truth and not from the usual formation that one would expect. I began to learn about the Rosary, Confession, the Mass, Holy Communion, Divine Mercy, God’s unconditional love for every one of His children regardless of faith or creed. I felt like I’d struck it rich and inherited a goldmine! I wanted to shout to the world the Book of Truth!!  

The new Monica

Daily Mass became the norm for me. I began making lists of all the sins of my life and bringing them to Confession. I was now praying the Rosary and Crusade Prayers daily. I was learning about Sister Faustina and the wonderful gift of Divine Mercy and the prayer of the Divine Mercy Chaplet. I also began reading about the lives of the saints and I learned a lot from this. Although my heart had begun to flower, I also felt a tremendous sorrow for how I had lived my life prior to my conversion. I was ashamed beyond words. I knew that Jesus’ love and forgiveness had conquered all of my sins at His great Sacrifice on Calvary. I would tell anyone and everyone about what the Book of Truth had done for me and especially my own mother.

Fighting for conversions in the Remnant Army

I’ve shared this Mission of Salvation with all the priests that I know. Actually I think that many people listen to me out of common courtesy, but often it has been like talking to a wall. I continued to read the messages over the phone to my good friend, in the hope that one day he would experience what I’ve encountered. I’m happy to say that since this time he too has received a conversion and he made a long list of the sins of his entire life and brought them to his first confession in twenty-two years! Upon hearing this good news, I became very emotional and tearfully happy for him. He told me that after his Confession, he felt so free!

Our Lord is working in a way that we cannot understand. I have found the internet to be a marvelous way of becoming an active part of the Mission of Salvation by sharing my conversion story and encouraging others in this mission. God has formed His Remnant Army to rise-up and be prayer warriors for the conversion of mankind, hence the name of the Crusade of Prayer groups- Jesus to Mankind.

Although this is the Lord’s work, He needs us to be praying, participating in The Mass, Rosary, Divine Mercy Chaplet, The Seal of the Living God, The Crusade and Litany prayers, time before the Blessed Sacrament, confessing our sins to a priest. We are in a war for souls. The war is fought in the heavens between God and Satan – Angels vs devils. There are no aircraft, tanks, warships and guns…only Prayer.

The Way Forward

This June, 2017, will be the third anniversary of my conversion. Year by year, my Faith in God has continued to evolve and deepen. I now love praying the Rosary and I’ve even started to make Rosary beads as a way of giving something back to Our Lady.

I truly believe that we are on a Mission for God that cannot fail. I believe that the Book of Truth is God preparing us for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ in Glory. And I now wish to make a very big pointI have tried my best to tell people about the Book of Truth. There have been many instances where the same people come back to me and say that others convinced them that Maria Divine Mercy is false. People believe all of the lies written about her on the internet. People think that if a priest or theologian who they like, does not believe in revelations, and tell you not to follow something, that they are right. But I believe that people should pray first and then be guided by the Holy Spirit and then follow their own hearts concerning this prophecy. Pray for the Gift of Discernment; pray as you never have before! How can it be that two solid priests beg to differ on the same authentic prophecy ?

I can tell you that God is speaking to His people through Maria Divine Mercy and I feel that no priest, no bishop and no cardinal could change my mind regarding the Book of Truth. I hear Jesus’s Voice in these messages and they are giving me huge consolation. Finally, I testify truthfully that my Conversion has come about solely through my discovery of the Book of Truth. I have attained knowledge and wisdom through reading the messages and I’ve received huge graces through the prayers, which I continue to pray daily. I have changed from living a depressing life of sin, to feeling every moment the hope and joy of living for Jesus and Mary. I look forward to the Second Coming of Jesus and to meeting you all in the New Paradise.

There, by the grace of God, go I.

Sincerely in Christ,

Monica.

Prayer Theme: Salvation of Souls

Overview of Readings

  1. Zaccariah 8: 9-17

(God speaks of His remnant, those who hear God’s words from His prophet – his blessings/promises to them.)

  1. B of T: 5 Sept., 2011

(Jesus asks us to pray and have Masses offered for those souls who will not survive the Warning.)

  1. B of T: 24 Nov., 2013

(Jesus speaks of His great Act of Mercy – the Warning – and of those who will reject Him, and the pain they will endure for eternity. He speaks of those who have been misled and who do not believe in the existence of Heaven, Hell and Purgatory)

  1. B of T: 19 June, 2014

(The Mother of Salvation tells us of miracles which will defy human reasoning – spectacles of the earth, sun and moon – and signs at apparition sites around the world – in order to ‘bring His children into a state where they can recognize Him’.)

Bible (Douay Rheims)

1.Zachariah 8: 9-17

Thus saith the Lord of hosts: Let your hands be strengthened, you that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, in the day that the house of the Lord of hosts was founded, that the temple might be built. [10] For before those days there was no hire for men, neither was there hire for beasts, neither was there peace to him that came in, nor to him that went out, because of the tribulation: and I let all men go every one against his neighbour.

[11] But now I will not deal with the remnant of this people according to the former days, saith the Lord of hosts. [12] But there shall be the seed of peace: the vine shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew: and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things. [13] And it shall come to pass, that as you were a curse among the Gentiles, O house of Juda, and house of Israel: so will I save you, and you shall be a blessing: fear not, let your hands be strengthened. [14] For thus saith the Lord of hosts: As I purposed to afflict you, when your fathers had provoked me to wrath, saith the Lord, [15] And I had no mercy: so turning again I have thought in these days to do good to the house of Juda, and Jerusalem: fear not.

[16] These then are the things, which you shall do: Speak ye truth every one to his neighbour: judge ye truth and judgment of peace in your gates. [17] And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his friend: and love not a false oath: for all these are the things that I hate, saith the Lord.

Readings from the Book of Truth

  1. Hold Divine Mercy Vigils now – The Warning is Close

5 Sept. 2011 (Note: two messages were received this evening from Jesus Christ.
In the first message, a private revelation, details of the period when the warning will take place were given to the visionary.The publication of these is at the discretion of the visionary who has decided not to publish them at this point.They have, instead, been given to a priest for safekeeping.This message will be published after the warning takes place.
The second message is a message for the world right now.)

My beloved daughter, the time is close now.
Prayer has helped my beloved vicar, Pope Benedict, withstand the internal battle he faces from evil forces. His time in the Vatican has been extended.
I urge all my followers to hold prayer meetings and Divine Mercy vigils for all my poor children who have wandered away from me and my eternal father. They urgently need your prayers. Prayer, and much of it, is needed now to save them.
Have Masses offered up for those, who because of the state of their souls during the warning, may not survive physically. They need your prayers. Unite.
Hold hands in unison with me.
Your beloved Jesus Christ

 

  1. Billions of people will enjoy a life of eternal glory in the Presence of God

November 24, 2013

My dearly beloved daughter, when I come to bring relief to humanity from the pain they have endured, because of their separation from God, they must all be thankful for this Great Mercy. Because of this, billions of people will enjoy a life of eternal glory in the Presence of God.

By this great Act of Mercy, I bring great news of the glorious Promise, when My Second Coming – to follow soon after The Warning – will complete God’s Plan for His children. All souls will be given the Gift of My Mercy, but not all will accept it. Those who do not accept it will be given only a short time in which to decide what kind of life they want. They can choose one where they will live a full and perfect life in body and soul in My New Paradise or one without God. Those who understand what it is I Am offering must never reject such a Gift. Yet, those who will refuse Me, will be content to wallow in darkness, in the belief that it does not matter. What they do not know is that they will feel a terrible pain when they are finally separated from Me. They will find themselves in a pitch-black abyss, where they will see nothing. They will have nothing. All they will feel will be a raging fire that will tear through them like a sword, which they will have to endure for eternity.

Separation from God occurred when Lucifer tempted Adam and Eve through the sin of pride. The sin of pride is the root cause of all sin and one, which binds man to Satan. When I come to reclaim My Throne, this separation will be no more. Those who are for Me, with Me and in Me will join as one. But on the day when I finally come and when I will judge the world, those who have separated themselves from Me and who will continue to reject Me will experience the final ending where I will no longer be Present. Where I will not be able to offer them comfort, to draw them back. Then they will experience eternal pain and suffering with the beast and all his demons in the fires of Hell.

I do not want to frighten you, shock or cause you suffering, but so that you understand the consequences, I must tell you the Truth. So many of you do not believe in Hell. You do not believe in it, because you have been misled for so long. Heaven, Hell and Purgatory exist. On the final day, there will only exist two entities – the New Paradise when Heaven and Earth become one and the abyss that is Hell.

The Truth is hard to accept, but without knowing the Truth you cannot choose your destiny.

Your Jesus

4.Mother of Salvation: These Miracles will happen over a period of three years

June 19, 2014

My child, the Miracles commanded by my Eternal Father will be made known soon in all parts of the Earth. These Miracles will defy all human reasoning, scientific knowledge and experience. The Earth, the sun and the moon will react to produce very unusual spectacles and many will know that they could only have been made possible by the Hand of God. These Miracles will happen over a period of three years and they will take place for a reason. They are to help to ignite the faith of humanity so that they will realize that everything is controlled by the Hand of God. 

When wicked acts and deeds are perpetrated by man, they can be intercepted by God. The battle between the evil one and God is difficult for people to understand. When injustices take place, they are permitted for different reasons, but the main one stems from the need for purification. This may seem unfair, but this is not for man to understand, until they are given the Gift of Knowledge, which comes from the Holy Spirit. It is when souls are purified that they will begin to realize the way in which God works in order to bring His children into a state where they can recognize Him.

The Miracles I speak of will include great Acts of God, which will involve tragedies which will be averted and seem to have been impossible from a scientific point of view. They will also involve great signs in the sky; the movement of the Earth and the colours associated with nature. 

My own involvement with these Miracles will be seen through the signs I will place at my apparition sites around the world. Do not fear these Miracles, as they are a Gift from God. Be thankful for His Mercy; for there is no task too great that He will not take on to ensure that the human race can be awakened so as to accept Him. This is the Will of God, for He loves every one of you.

Your beloved Mother

Mother of Salvation

 

and finally, the reading chosen by Crusader Will who joins us each week in prayer from across the sea at the same time we pray. The reading is rather long, but also mentions the Warning and what is to come:

5. Democracy to Disappear – Priests will be Martyred

3 March, 2011 (excerpts)

…  you must understand the sheer urgency of this message.
my word is being given to you in the most historical era since the beginning.
for it is in this time that the world will now experience changes never witnessed by mankind to date.
G
et ready now, my children, wherever you are in the world.
for very soon one of the most precious gifts, out of my mercy, will now be given to each of you.
My warning, which is being given to you, will spread conversion everywhere.
W
hen this takes place, after that moment in time when the earth will stay still, love through the acceptance of the truth will be widespread.
Satan’s followers will find it difficult to defend their wicked behaviour, before the love and light that will shine through you.

But although the great event, which will startle you, brings much conversion, you must still prepare for it. Accept that this prophecy will take place. Very few will deny it both during and afterwards.

The great persecution will follow.Priests will suffer.
My army of beloved followers will rise bravely and defend my existence.
Yet even those who you least expect, including my christian church leaders, will side with the evil one and his parasites.
T
hey will be seduced due to their weakness of faith.
You will find that those holy vicars of mine, my loyal sacred servants, will have to defend their faith. The cruelty, which will be shown to them, will be similar to that I faced by my executioners. Heed this all of you who follow me.
Do not be tempted to follow the path of the traitors, even if you are frightened. Never fall for their false promises. Be brave. Pray for strength.
Persecution won’t last long. Brace yourselves, believers, for even those closest to you will turn away from the Faith.
You may find yourself isolated, laughed at and publicly ridiculed.
Ignore their taunts. I
will guide you all and protect you, because this time won’t last long. The most painful suffering you will experience will be their disloyalty to me, to the Truth.
Non-christian nations will control
Prayer can help diminish some of the catastrophic events, which will unfold.
The persecution, which will be inflicted on those of you who believe in me and My Eternal Father, will be by the nations who are empty of love,-  love for God.
The only love they hold in their hearts is for the power over less fortunate countries.

Control is their primary aim. Glory, and the pursuit of wealth and ownership over you, your country and those of you, who refuse to denounce me. Give in, my children, and you will find it very difficult to back track or retrace your steps towards me. This will require tremendous courage in the face of powerful adversity, but win you will.
S
hould you suffer because of the passion you feel in your hearts for the love of God, My Eternal Father, then you will accept this with joy in your souls.
Rise of New Dictators
Sudden changes in global situations, which up to now seemed like trifle unrest, will now emerge as all out wars. Wars will lead to shortage of food.
Democracy will diminish quickly
and wicked dictatorships will rise.
these dictatorships will, however, be very careful how they are perceived.
They will come as peaceful negotiators and as “saviours”
I
n return for feeding your mouths they will control your possessions, which will then become theirs. You will have to get permission to feed your families.
In order to travel you will need a special form of identification and will be asked to accept the mark – the mark of the beast.
Run, my children. Hide. For that’s not all.
They will dictate how you pray because it is not to God they turn.
these, my children, are satan’s armies, and they want to steal your souls
.

Those of you who believe in Me, get ready.
Go back to your churches immediately.
Pray to God the Eternal Father.
Gather in groups and pray, pray, pray.
A
sk for reconciliation now, so that when you witness the warning you will Accept, with humility, the state of your souls.
You will have nothing to fear.
Pray too, for your family and friends, your children, your neighbours.
all of them need to prepare.
So many will then be converted when they witness the truth of my existence.
S
o many will not be able to withstand the shock when they see how they have offended me.
Others simply won’t care.
The hours are ticking now.
Ask me to help you
Signs, all of which have been foretold, are around you, children.
See them and accept them for what they are.
Uprisings. Earthquakes. Floods.Climate change.
They will now escalate.
Money is now becoming scarce so too will your food.
Do not believe that all is lost, for when you ask Me for help, your prayers will be answered.
I
will hold you all by the hand and help you through this turmoil.
but you must open your hearts.
Block any attempt to seduce you into joining in the evil one’s plotting.

Retain purity of heart and mind.
Be humble in your outlook, but never be afraid to defend your right to believe in Me.Time to prepare your souls
The time is ready.
Go now, My children, and prepare your souls.
S
eek, through the Sacraments, the graces needed to sanctify your souls.
Then ask Me to take you in my arms and ask for salvation.
My love and compassion for each and every one of you is beyond your comprehension.
The warning, one of the most gracious gifts I can give you all before the final judgment even takes place, must be welcomed by you.
B
e thankful that you are being given this wonderful gift, because when conversion takes place in every corner of the world, you will then be truly ready for the new heaven and earth, which will then merge as one – my paradise and the glorious inheritance each one of you is entitled to share – should you so choose.
Await My warning now, my children, for the time is drawing very close now.
Y
our loving Saviour, Just Judge and merciful Jesus Christ

 

JTM Prayer Meeting Tuesday 20th October, 2015

Readings are chosen at Random. They seem very relevant in this last week of the synod.

Second Book Of Machabees Ch 1
[1] To the brethren the Jews that are throughout Egypt, the brethren, the Jews that are in Jerusalem, and in the land of Judea, send health, and good peace. [2] May God be gracious to you, and remember his covenant that he made with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, his faithful servants: [3] And give you all a heart to worship him, and to do his will with a great heart, and a willing mind. [4] May he open your heart in his law, and in his commandments, and send you peace. [5] May he hear your prayers, and be reconciled unto you, and never forsake you in the evil time.

Ask for the Gift of Suffering
14 September 2011

My dearly beloved daughter, your suffering has eased and I wish to thank you for this gift.
It will return, but you will be able to accept it with much more joy in your heart.
I need your suffering because it saves the souls of sinners, who would otherwise end up in Hell.
One day you will look into their souls and will be overwhelmed with love and joy when you see them sit next to me beside the throne of My Father.
Sinners will always be embraced first, when they repent.
They will always be in the front line, much to the surprise of my followers.
These souls have been brought to me through the prayers and suffering of my followers, and my chosen souls.
My followers will understand this, because they will, through their union with me, rejoice at the salvation of such souls.
I now need many more souls to be saved, My daughter.
Please pray that you and other chosen souls will learn how suffering can increase the numbers who will enter My Father’s Kingdom.
I ask them to request the graces required to be given the gift of suffering.

Remember, when I bestow suffering, it is a special grace and one which will bring many more souls into the bosom of My Heart.
Your beloved Jesus
Saviour of mankind

 

Mother of God: The division in the world, to be brought about by Gog and Magog, will split families in two
 18 March 2013

My child, you must never doubt the importance of this mission or allow attacks on you to divert your attention from My Beloved Son.
It is because of My Son’s love and mercy that he reveals to the world the plans by the evil one to snatch souls before the time of the end.
This devious plan has been devised for a very long time and will be inflicted on God’s children by masonic forces whose allegiance is to the evil one.
Let no one be in any doubt as to the prophecies revealed by me, your mother, to visionaries and seers throughout the centuries.
Children, you must not be frightened.
Instead you should be hopeful and rejoice for the time for the new Heaven and new Earth is soon and God’s children will finally be rid of the evil, which each one of you has borne witness to throughout your lives.
This time has been foretold in My Father’s book, and because of this, you must accept the truth of the contents of the Book of Revelation.
If you do not accept the Book of Revelation, given to John, then you cannot say you accept the rest of the book – the most holy Bible.
Much of what is to come will be difficult and hurtful, for the division in the world to be brought about by gog and magog will split families in two.
The evil scheming and the deceitful plans, devised by the False Prophet and the Antichrist, will be the greatest deception since the Pharisees denied My Son.
When they, the Pharisees, denied My Son, they prevented the truth from being given to God’s children.
This reduced the numbers and the followers of My Son, during his time on Earth, and prevented them from becoming Christians.
The same will be true of these two who will bear the image of goodness, but who will lead many of God’s children astray.
They will blind many to the truth as the sweeping changes, which they will bring about, throughout their reign, will detach people from the Laws of God.
God’s children will be told that evil is acceptable and that certain sins are not offensive to God.
People will believe them and, as a result, will turn their backs on God.
Pray, pray, pray that their reign will be short and that the truth will prevail so that My Son’s Church on Earth can remain intact.
Your Beloved Mother
Mother of Salvation

Ask and you will receive is not an idle promise that I make
 3 May 2014

My dearly beloved daughter, when I ask people to trust in me, this is a very difficult thing, for many people to do.
So many find it hard to trust in My Love for humanity, when they rely on their own faith, in order for them to surrender completely to me.
It is only when you fully surrender yourselves, into my care, can you feel safe, protected and at peace.
My Love, when sought out by you, will cover you, when you hold out your arms and call out to me as a little child.
Children place all their trust in their parents, when they are little.
They know only the difference between what feels right and what feels wrong and so they rely completely on the adult to protect them.
Children do not think twice about running to their parents for comfort and to seek refuge.
The faith of a child is strong.
He does not question, for he believes, truly that he will find safety in the arms of a loving parent.
I am to be trusted, for all that is asked of me will be done, if it is for the good of the soul.
Ask and you will receive is not an idle promise that I make.
I relish the act of lavishing my gifts upon each one of you.
When you ask me to help you, I hear, feel and respond to all that you desire.
Allow me the chance to prove My Love for each of you.
Let me show you the proof of my intervention.
It is at this time of existence, that I, Jesus Christ, will make my presence known in all that you ask of me.
It is at this time, that I will enable you to feel my presence, witness my great acts of intervention in your daily lives and to understand the power of your prayers.
For these are the days of great miracles, which I bequeath to humanity, more than at any other time, since I walked the Earth.
When you truly place all your trust in me, I can work great miracles to bring you, not only relief from suffering, but to draw you even closer to my Sacred Heart.
When a child knows that a parent loves him, he feels secure in the knowledge that he is protected.
Know that by trusting in me, I protect you all and I will flood each of your souls with a deep sense of peace, which you will find nowhere else on this Earth.
Come to me today and call on me to help you – no matter what worries you may have.
Recite this special prayer, every time you are in distress, and I will respond every single time.
Crusade Prayer (148) come to my aid:
O my Jesus, help me, in my time of great distress.
Hold me in your arms and take me into the refuge of your heart.
Wipe away my tears.
Calm my resolve.
Lift My Spirits and fill me with your peace.
Please grant me this special request (mention it here…).
Come to my aid, so that my request is answered and that My Life can become peaceful and in union with you, dear lord.
If my request cannot be granted, then fill me with the grace to accept that your holy will is for the good of my soul and that I will remain faithful to your word, forever, with a kind and gracious heart.
Amen.

Always call to me, whenever you are sorrowful or in need of help and I promise that you will be given a sign that I have responded to your cry to me,Your Beloved Saviour.

Your Jesus

Fr Slavko and Miracle Stories

Fr SlavkoOn 10th July, our first day in Medjugorje, we met up with our WYD friend (Moses) and we went for a walk to see the layout of the Church,  the Franciscan Piety Stall, the outdoor altar and the huge area of seating that is capable of holding thousands of people, ( see post on Adoration), Fr Slavko’s grave, the outdoor statue of Our Lady at the front of the Church, the shrines made with a tile mosaic of the  Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary and more.

Fr Slavko Barbaric

This priest is famous for his work here.
He died at the age of 53. He worked tirelessly for the Lord. He built an orphanage (called ‘The Mother’s village’) to accommodate the orphans after the Bosnian war.(below is one of the chapels at the orphanage.)

Chapel at orphanage
Chapel at orphanage

Fr Slavko would get only 3 hours sleep per night. He died after he climbed the hill with the Cross. The climb has the Stations of the Cross. It is stony and rocky just like the Apparition Hill, only longer. When he got to the top he sat down and said he didn’t feel well. This was between the 13th and 14th Station. Then he died.

A stone memorial marks this spot. (See picture below left. ) His grave (on the right) is found in the area behind St James Church.)

20150712_192102 20150710_115342

There is a case where an American pilgrim had climbed this hill who had been away from the church for a long, long time. She met a priest on the way and he explained to her about Confession and the commandments.

She was so enthused she went straight to the church for Confession. Later, she noticed a picture of this priest hanging on the wall of the piety shop and pointed him out and said that she had just been speaking to this priest out on the hill. The only thing was that he had already been dead and buried.

The Outdoor Crucifix.

This crucifix is rather modern in its form and not to everyone’s liking.  It is made of bronze (or brass). It shows the cloth wrapped around Jesus’ hips and which has one corner hanging down at the back and which is tied in a “b20150710_113937ow” at the side.  It all looks rather odd.

This sculpture has some cracks and seems to weep water, even if it is dry and hasn’t rained. People are seen mopping up the moisture with cloths.
It is asserted that a person who was blind received one of these cloths and put it on his eyes and was cured.

Divine Mercy Sacred HeartWatch this Space…

Some of our prayer group members have gone overseas on a pilgrimage. We are hoping to receive beautiful photos and stories from them, which I will share as soon as they are received. And we are fully expecting miracles too! I thought I would share one of the things for which we are praying, with faith.

Jesus said: “Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?” (John 11:40)

There are other stories behind this, such as why we are praying to the Sacred Heart of Jesus for the healing of my young sister, E, of severe, crippling rheumatoid arthritis. Of course, we are always praying for many things daily: foremost is the salvation of souls for Our Lord! This is just one specific request made out of Love to our Beloved Saviour. Here is the email request my mum sent out:

Dear E,

I want you to start saying this prayer Thursday 25th June for 3 novenas 21 days.

I will say it too. We will finish just a few days after I return.

The last novena will be a thanksgiving novena.

I will ask Our Lady, (while at the pilgrimage site) and St. Padre Pio for your healing.

Jesus always hears our prayers. You know that.

His timing is always right.

Say it with Faith, Hope and Love. EVERY DAY.

I will be saying the prayer below in the third person.

Say all the prayers below each day.

And remember it is the month of the SACRED HEART which loves you very much!!!

Prayer for healing:

Heavenly Father, I call on You right now in a special way.

It is through your power that I was created.

Every breath I take, every morning I wake up

and every moment of every hour, I live under your power.

Father, I ask you now to touch me with that same power.

For if You created me from nothing, You can certainly recreate me.

Fill me with the healing power of your Spirit.

Cast out anything that should not be in me.

Mend what is broken. Root out any unproductive cells.

Open any blocked arteries or veins

and re build any damaged areas.

Remove all inflammation and cleanse any infection.

Let the warmth of your healing love pass through my body

to make new any unhealthy areas

so that my body will function the way You created it to function.

And Father, restore me to full health in mind and body

so that I may serve You the rest of my life.

I ask this through the intercession of Mother Mary, Health of the sick

and your Son Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus:

O Most Holy Heart of Jesus,

Fountain of every blessing, I adore Thee

and with a  lively sorrow for my sins;

I offer Thee this poor heart of mine.

Make me humble, patient, pure

and wholly obedient to Thy Will.

Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in Thee and for Thee.

Protect me in the midst of danger;

comfort me in my afflictions;

give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs,

Thy blessing on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death.

Within Thy Heart I place my every care.

In every need let me come to Thee with humble trust

Saying ,’Heart of Jesus help me’.
