A Pentecost Novena – the first cenacle

AM+DG

The Novena to the Holy Spirit begins today. After Jesus ascended into heaven, the apostles and Our Lady gathered in  the Upper Room to prepare for the fulfilment of Jesus’ promiseto wait for “the promise of the Father about which you have heard me speak;  for John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the holy Spirit.”(Acts 1: 4-5). This was the first novena.

The Book of Truth describes this time of waiting and Our Lady’s role. We too now, more than ever, need the strength, and courage, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit to help us in these times.

You can choose any specially prepared novena to the Holy Spirit, or just say a prayer to the Holy Spirit with which you are already familiar, or you can choose to say this prayer:

Crusade of Prayer No.51:

For the Gift of the Holy Spirit    

 “Oh come Holy Spirit, pour Your Gift of Love, Wisdom and Knowledge, over my humble soul.  Fill me with the Light of Truth, so that I can discern the Truth of God, from the lies spread by Satan and his angels. Help me to grasp the torch and spread the Flame of understanding to all those I meet, through Christ, Our Lord.  Amen.”

The Novena begins today. See the message below to read about the apostles gathered with our Blessed Mother, during these  days of waiting.

Virgin Mary: When I waited with the apostles in the Cenacle for the descent of the Holy Spirit it took ten days of preparation.

22 August 2012 @ 09:18am; Message 0525
 

My child, the wilderness in which My children find themselves in the world today is because they do not know how to be given the Gift of the Holy Spirit.

Just as I taught you, it takes a long time to be given the Gift. It consists of a very tough journey before any of God’s children can be made worthy to receive this special Gift.

When I waited with the apostles in the Cenacle for the descent of the Holy Spirit it took ten days of preparation. Although these holy, devout and loyal servants of my beloved Son were promised the Gift they were not fully prepared spiritually to be given the Gift.

I, their beloved Mother, had to help them prepare their souls. It meant teaching them the importance of full surrender of their free will. To become worthy they had to understand the depth of humility, to which they had to succumb, before they were ready. Some of them thought that they had learned everything from my Son. However, this was a sign of pride and when pride exists in you, you cannot receive the Holy Gift of the Holy Spirit.

To receive the Gift of the Holy Spirit you must become little before my Son, like a small child. There can be no room for pride or arrogance. Yet, people today who claim to speak with authority about the way in which my Son speaks fall into a trap.

They, when claiming to be knowledgeable about  spiritual matters, speak with an arrogance which does not reflect the graces which are given to those who genuinely possess this great Gift from Heaven.

Those who have been bestowed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit are submissive to the wishes of my Son. They are not boastful. They are not aggressive. They do not criticise another using the Name of my Son to do so. They do not mock others, when proclaiming their interpretation of His Holy Word. They do not preach hatred.

When my Son’s disciples were prepared by me, many arguments took place.

It took some time before they finally accepted what was expected of them. Only then, when they understood how only humility of soul can allow the Holy Spirit to enter, were they finally prepared.

I urge all of God’s children, especially those who believe in my Son, to ask me, their Mother, to allow me to prepare them for this great Gift.

My child, it took me a full year to prepare you and this was no easy feat. Do you remember how hard you found it to say my Holy Rosary? How hard you found it to surrender your will and to prove your humility?

Now that you have received the Gift it does not mean that you can take it for granted. You must continue to pray, remain humble of heart and seek redemption every single day. For just as it is given, so too, can it be taken away.

I ask all those following these Messages to pray for the Gift of the Holy Spirit. It is not enough to pray just the once and say that you have received the discernment you asked for and to then cast aspersions on these Divine Messages. If you do this then you have not been given the Gift.

Please call on me, your Blessed Mother, to help prepare you through this Crusade Prayer.

Crusade Prayer (74) for Gift of Discernment

O Mother of God help me to prepare my soul for the Gift of the Holy Spirit. Take me as a child, by the hand, and lead me on the road towards the Gift of discernment through the Power of the Holy Spirit. Open my heart and teach me to surrender in body, mind and soul. Rid me of the sin of pride and pray that I will be forgiven for all past sins so that my soul is purified and that I am made whole so that I can receive the Gift of the Holy Spirit. I thank you Mother of Salvation for your intercession and I await with love in my heart for this Gift for which I yearn with  joy. Amen.

Remember children come to me, your Mother, to help you to open your soul to receive this wonderful Gift. When you receive this Gift I will take you before my Son. For only then will you be truly ready for the next step on the stairway to spiritual perfection.

Mother of Salvation.

Jesus to Mankind Prayer meeting on Thurs, 8th April, 2021

Prayer Group Theme: Discipleship (A& E)

Bible: Leviticus 23: 15-22

Book of Truth: 19 March, 2013 (Vol. 3)

Reading from the Bible

Leviticus 23: 15-22

Pentecost. 15 Beginning with the day after the sabbath, the day on which you bring the sheaf for elevation, you shall count seven full weeks; 16 you shall count to the day after the seventh week, fifty days. Then you shall present a new grain offering to the LORD. 17 For the elevated offering of your first-ripened fruits to the LORD, you shall bring with you from wherever you live two loaves of bread made of two tenths of an ephah of bran flour and baked with leaven. 18 Besides the bread, you shall offer to the LORD a burnt offering of seven unblemished yearling lambs, one bull of the herd, and two rams, along with their grain offering and libations, as a sweet-smelling oblation to the LORD. 19 One male goat shall be sacrificed as a purification offering, and two yearling lambs as a communion sacrifice. 20 The priest shall elevate them—that is, the two lambs—with the bread of the first-ripened fruits as an elevated offering before the LORD; these shall be sacred to the LORD and belong to the priest. 21 On this same day you shall make a proclamation: there shall be a declared holy day for you; no heavy work may be done. This shall be a perpetual statute through all your generations wherever you dwell.

22 When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not be so thorough that you reap the field to its very edge, nor shall you gather the gleanings of your harvest. These things you shall leave for the poor and the alien. I, the LORD, am your God.

 

Comment:

When we celebrate the Last Supper, the Death of Our Lord and Resurrection, we are celebrating in the New Covenant, which replaces the old. However all we do is richly and intricately connected to the Old Testament; woven into the story of the People of God. Recently, my daughter was questioning as to why we don’t celebrate the Passover as Christians. I explained that we do! Our Holy Week celebrations begin with Palm Sunday, take us through the Institution of the Eucharist at the Last Supper, delve deeply in to the mystery of Good Friday and end with celebrating The Resurrection on Easter Sunday. We continue to celebrate Easter until The Ascension and look forward to Pentecost. These were all life-changing, pivotal events in the lives of the disciples.

This reading from the Old Testament shows just how perfect and connected, how richly symbolic is God’s Plan. All the symbolism written here in the Jewish celebration of Pentecost prefigures what we will celebrate in the New Testament. The 7 weeks, outlined in the Old Testament reading above, equals  the forty days of time from the Resurrection to the Ascension of Jesus to heaven; plus the 10 additional days until the feast of Pentecost is celebrated. The ways in which each of these lines up, is remarkable! So, what are we being reminded about in regards to Pentecost, an important Feast Day in the life of the Church and all disciples?

We are reminded that we must be purified and offer sacrifice to the Lord. We must be merciful to those who need it, not scrupulous in gathering all for only ourselves to offer, but sharing with those who have less. As then, the finest bread and wine is offered, but it is now the Lamb of God, Who atones for our sins.

We must therefore celebrate the Eucharist, elevated and offered through the hands of the priest, according to The Lord’s decreebecause these things shall be sacred to The Lord. And the statute of the holy day, will remain till the end of time.

The theme of Pentecost, when we are reminded of the power of the Holy Spirit, was then continued in the next reading, randomly and perfectly chosen, from the Book of Truth.

19 March 2013 @ 10:45pm

Layer by layer, their evil intents will become clear as they trip themselves up

My dearly beloved daughter, My Holy Word spreads like a powerful wind across the whole world, at this time, through these Messages.

Many will hear My Voice, whether they wish to do so, or not, for It will sound like thunder before the storm. Some will recognise the Holy Spirit as It engulfs their souls. Others, unfortunately, will not, but I say this to them. You have heard My Voice. It has stirred your soul and, yet, you block Me. Yet, you turn your back.  You may fear My Voice, as It can be overwhelming, but the one thing you cannot do is to ignore Me.

So powerful is My Holy Spirit that It will touch your soul, whether you wish this to be or not. To those of you who run, hide and pretend that I Am not Present, you should know that you will be unable to deny My Presence, no matter how hard you try.

Some of you will resist the Truth as you lack faith in My Promise to offer you eternal life. Many of you find this frightening and would prefer to think that the Great Day of the Lord will not take place in your lifetime. And so you close your eyes, block your ears and seek solace in other things.

The security you feel in trying to find peace, where it can be found, will be short lived.

Soon you will be denied the Word of God. Words you have been used to hearing will disappear from the homilies, and the letters from your bishops and cardinals, delivered to you and all those unsuspecting followers of Mine.

Masonic sects infiltrate the Church in Rome. Make no mistake – there can only be one pope in one lifetime.

Many of My followers will now reject My Holy Word, the Truth, just as they did during My trial on earth. You, My daughter, will be rejected as a heretic, sneered at and mocked. You will become a thorn in the side of the false prophet. But soon, all will see the subtle acts and the sly gestures of those false imposters who preside over My Throne in Rome, for they amount to sacrilege.pope_sickle

Layer by layer, their evil intents will become clear as they trip themselves up and those, blessed with the insight bestowed upon them by Me, will realise the abomination, which is unravelling.

The beast is now ready and forms a secular circle, comprised of some of the world’s leaders, as one in union with all that is against the Kingdom of God.  Demonic spirits, who invade these poor souls, will, because of their pride and arrogance, show themselves for all to see through their gestures, which will be scrutinised and questioned until the final answers will dawn on those blessed with the Gift of Discernment.

Trust in Me. Trust in this Gift of Trust. Let Me hold you and guide you through this jungle of evil creatures, who wish to devour your souls.

Your Jesus.

 

Pentecost Sunday: Traditional Prayer (Sequence)

AMDG+

Come, O Holy Spirit, come!
From Your bright and blissful Home
Rays of healing light impart.

Come, Father of the poor,
Source of gifts that will endure
Light of ev’ry human heart.
You of all consolers best,
Of the soul most kindly Guest,
Quick’ning courage do bestow.
In hard labor You are rest,
In the heat You refresh best,
And solace give in our woe.
O most blessed Light divine,
Let Your radiance in us shine,
And our inmost being fill.
Nothing good by man is thought,
Nothing right by him is wrought,
When he spurns Your gracious Will.
Cleanse our souls from sinful stain,
Lave our dryness with Your rain,
Heal our wounds and mend our way.
Bend the stubborn heart and will,
Melt the frozen, warm the chill,
Guide the steps that go astray.
On the faithful who humbly.
Trust in Your Divinity,
Deign Your sevenfold gift to send.
Give them virtue’s rich increase,
Saving grace to die in peace,
Give them joys that never end.
Amen. Alleluia.

(In honour of the Most Holy Trinity, Spirit of God Himself, most Gracious and Most Holy. If any one has been touched by Him, or felt His Presence, words cannot describe Him-only tears; of great love, thanksgiving and repentance. May He touch all those in most need of His Guidance and Mercy right now, especially those for whom God’s will us to pray, and fill us all with His Love.)

The traditional Latin  Mass today ,had in the Propers Scripture quotes which are part of  a prayer many of us say every day. It is so meaningful especially  for the times today:

The prayer:

“Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful. Enkindle in them the fire of Thy Love. Send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created , and Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.”

What we definitely need is a new Pentecost.The faithful have dwindled, but we know that you will renew the face of the earth. We are just waiting for the day. The Mass Propers today give us a lot to think about.

The Mass Propers today:

The Introit: (Wisdom 1:7)

The Spirit of the Lord hath filled the whole world, alleluia;
and that which containeth all things hath knowledge of the voice.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
Psalm:. Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered: and let them that hate Him flee from before His face. …

The Collect:

O God, who on this day hadst taught the hearts of Thy faithful by the light of the Holy Ghost, grant us by the same Spirit to have a right judgment in all things and ever to rejoice in His consolation.  …

The Epistle: (Acts of the Apostles 2. 1-11 )

When the days of the Pentecost were accomplished, they were all together in one place; and suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a mighty wind coming,and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them parted tongues as it were of fire, and it sat upon every one of them; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they began to speak with diverse tongues, according as the Holy Ghost gave them to speak. Now there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews,devout men, out of every nation under heaven. And when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded in mind, because that every man heard them speak in his own tongue. And they were all amazed, and wondered,saying: Behold, are not all these that speak Galileans? And how have we heard every man our own tongue wherein we were born? Parthians and Medes, and Elamites, and inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphylia, Egypt, and the parts of Lybia about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews also, and Proselytes, Cretes and Arabians; we have heard them speak in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.

Alleluia verse: (Ps 103:3)  “Alleluia, alleluia. V. Send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created, and Thou shalt renew the face of earth.”

GOSPEL Jn 14:23-31

At that time Jesus said to His disciples If any one love Me, he will keep My word, and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and will make Our abode in him: he that loveth Me not keepeth not My words. And the word which you have heard is not Mine; but the Father’s who sent Me. These things have I spoken to you, abiding with you. But the Paraclete,the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, whatsoever I shall have said to you. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, do I give unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. You have heard that I said to you: I go away, and I come unto you. If you loved Me, you would indeed be glad,because I go to the Father: for the Father is greater than I. And now I have told you before it come to pass: that when it shall come to pass you may believe. I will not now speak many things with you. For the prince of this world cometh, and in Me he hath not any thing. But that the Father hath given Me commandment so do I.

POSTCOMMUNION: “May the outpouring of the Holy Ghost purify our hearts, O Lord, and by the inward sprinkling of His heavenly dew may they be made fruitful.  …”

Just a reminder – June is Crusade of Conversion Month

AM+DG

I guess it’s a little late, but there are still 21 days of June left. If you have forgotten, start saying Crusade Prayer 58 today. At our JtM seminar yesterday, Joseph talked about suffering (Jesus and ours) – this is reflected in the message below. Not much is asked of us. Our Lady tells us that we can save millions.

What is required is listed in the messages below. Many of you will already be doing some of this (rosary, Chaplet and CP 58). Just add fasting once a week this month and daily Mass and Communion as often as you can as well as quiet contemplation. – (perhaps at Adoration/ Holy Hour before the Blessed Sacrament).

And don’t forget the monthly Novena of Salvation with CP 130 (said 3 times per day each day for 7 days, beginning on a Monday morning, and 1 day of fasting).

Let’s try and save millions. Today is the Feast of Pentecost – a most appropriate day to begin.

Virgin Mary: June Crusade of Conversion Month

Thursday, May 31st, 2012 @ 09:00 pm
 
My child, every effort is being made by Satan and those souls he has infected to undermine my Son’s Most Holy Word.  Always remember that Satan plants the first seeds of doubts within the hearts of chosen souls.  The worst condemnation will be poured upon these Holy Messages by those who are intimately united to my Precious Son.  When Satan does this he wins souls.  Do not let him do this, My child. Walk away and do not engage with him.  My Son never defended His Holy Word nor should you succumb to this temptation.  The scale of satanic influence is growing and spreading throughout the world.  My poor children suffer so and I weep tears of sorrow when I see their dismay and sorrow.  Pray, my children, for peace at this time so that God’s children everywhere will turn to my Son for strength.  Only divine intervention, given through the graces provided through your prayers, can ease your pain and suffering.  My Son yearns for souls to turn to Him for only He can give them the comfort they need. Nothing else will provide relief from the torment you now endure.  I urge you children to dedicate the month of June to the conversion of mankind and to ensure that they will seek salvation.  Call this month the Crusade of Conversion month and pray as one through prayer groups throughout the world. 
 
Here is the Crusade Prayer for the Crusade of Conversion:
 
Crusade Prayer (58) Crusade of Conversion Prayer
O dear Jesus, I call on You to embrace all God’s children and cover them with Your Precious Blood.  Let each drop of Your Blood cover every soul to shield them from the evil one.  Open the hearts of all especially hardened souls and those who know You, but who are stained with The sin of pride to fall down and beg for the light of Your Love to flood their souls.  Open their eyes to see the Truth so that the dawn of Your Divine Mercy will shower down upon them so they are covered with the Rays of Your Mercy.  Convert all souls through the graces I ask you for now, Dear Jesus (personal intention here). I beg You for Mercy and offer You this gift of fasting for one day every week for this month of June in atonement for all sins.  Amen.
 
Children, you must fast for one day each week in the month of June. You must recite My Rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet daily.  Doing this, children, you will save the souls of millions through the Mercy of My Son Jesus Christ.
 
Your beloved Mother
Mother of Salvation

Spend the month of June in quiet contemplation as instructed by My Beloved Mother.

Sunday, June 3rd, 2012 @ 03:30 pm
 
My dearly beloved daughter, My followers must spend the month of June in quiet contemplation as instructed by My Beloved Mother.  This month is the time when, through the Crusade of Conversion,  many people can receive the graces of instant conversion through the sacrifices made by those of you who respond to My Mother, the Mother of Salvation.  You need to be quiet this month.  Please, I urge you to visit your churches as much as you can to recite My Divine Mercy Chaplet at 3 o’clock.  Catholics please receive My Holy Eucharist every day if possible during this month.  For this month will be the time when the plans, silently underway to increase unrest in the Middle East, are being finalizedBe strong. Be patient. Be humble of heart.  Submit your will to Me and offer your trials and sacrifices for the conversion of all sinnersGo in peace My beloved followers.  My Holy Spirit is covering you all at this time as I beckon you to this special devotion.
 
Your Beloved Jesus
 

Mother of Salvation: I ask that you now begin the Novena of Salvation
December 1, 2013 @ 4:12 pm

My child, I am the woman clothed with the sun and it is the sun, which represents the Light of God in the world. Without the sun, there is no Light. Without Light, there is no Life. Without God, there is only death.

My role as the Mother of Salvation, where I will assist my Son in this His final Mission, His final Plan to complete His Father’s Covenant to bring salvation to every soul, means that I will do all that I can to bring Him the souls He so desires. I wish it to be known that I have been appointed, not only the Queen of Heaven, but Queen over the twelve tribes of Israel. Twelve nations will reign in the New Jerusalem. The twelve stars, on my crown, which were placed upon my head by my beloved Son, Jesus Christ, during my Coronation, signify this prophecy. Each of these stars represents the twelve nations, which will evolve on the Day of Judgment.

All souls, including those who will rise from the dead, as well as those who are alive in the world today and who remain in the Light of God, will make the transition into the New Heaven and the New Earth. They will join as one, in union with my Son, and they will be resurrected into perfect body and soul, just as it was when my Son rose from the dead. This state of perfection is the Greatest Gift from God and proves how merciful He is. This is the salvation, which my Son promised, when he endured His Agony on the Cross. And because of His great Love for humanity, He wishes to save every single soul and, especially, those who are lost to Him.

I now give all of you a special Gift, blessed by my Son, so that all souls will be granted immunity from the fires of Hell and be granted salvation. My Son desires that every soul be saved, no matter how grievous their sin. I ask that you now begin the Novena of Salvation. You must begin this immediately and continue it, as I instruct you to, to the end of time. You must recite this Prayer for a full seven consecutive days during one calendar month commencing on Mondays, in the morning time. You must recite it three times during each of the seven days and on one of these days you must fast. By fasting you are requested to eat only one main meal during the day and then bread and water only at the other two meal times.

This is the prayer you must say for each of the seven days.

Crusade Prayer (130) Novena of Salvation Crusade Prayer:
My beloved Mother of Salvation, please gain for all souls, the Gift of eternal salvation through the Mercy of your Son, Jesus Christ.  Through your intercession I plead that you will pray to release all souls from bondage to Satan.Please ask your Son to show Mercy and forgiveness for those souls, who reject Him, hurt Him with their indifference and who adore false doctrine and false gods.We beseech you dear Mother, to beg for the graces to open the hearts of those souls who are most in need of your help. Amen.

My promise to assist my Son, Jesus Christ, in His Plan for humanity is to draw all of you, who recognise my role as Mediatrix of All Graces and Co-Redemptrix, together, so that the whole world can unite as one in union with Jesus Christ, your Saviour and Redeemer.

Go in peace. I will always pray for you dear children and I will always respond to your call to redeem mankind in the Eyes of God.

Your Mother
Mother of Salvation
