His Holiness, Pope Urban VIII stated:

“In cases which concern private revelations, it is better to believe than not to believe, for, if you believe, and it is proven true, you will be happy that you have believed, because our Holy Mother asked it. If you believe, and it should be proven false, you will receive all blessings as if it had been true, because you believed it to be true.”

(Pope Urban VIII, 1623-44)

PROLOGUE

(Feast of Our Lady of Arras, Netherlands, 2016)

This book is a compilation of several love-letters and other writings that can be found on the blog, MaryRefugeOfHolyLove.com

Since each chapter was originally written “independent” from one another, the book can be read in any order, although it makes more sense to begin on the first page, as the reader will witness in the subsequent chapters a continuity and deepening of thoughts progressing from the original love-letter.

This book provides a solid introduction into the spirituality of the United Hearts of Jesus Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary – the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart – the Two Hearts of Holy Love and Divine Love.

The heavenly messages relied upon by the author in this book come primarily from these two sources:

Our Lady of Medjugorje

Holy Love Ministries (http://www.holylove.org)

The heavenly messages relied upon by the author may or may not be approved currently by the Catholic Church.  However, the author believes in the genuine authenticity of the heavenly messages provided in this book, which has come about through much prayer to the Holy Spirit.

The author offers the words of His Holiness, Pope Urban VIII (1623-44) as a means of discernment for the reader:

“In cases which concern private revelations, it is better to believe than not to believe, for, if you believe, and it is proven true, you will be happy that you have believed, because our Holy Mother asked it. If you believe, and it should be proven false, you will receive all blessings as if it had been true, because you believed it to be true.”

All graces given by the Holy Spirit to the author are unmerited.  The author offers this book as a continuation of these graces so God may bless others as the author has been blessed.

Although this book is written by a Catholic Christian, the intended audience is for all peoples of all faiths and non-believers.

It is the sincere hope of the author that all readers will be inspired by the spirituality contained within the book’s pages, which the author believes comes directly from God’s Own Paternal Heart.

Readers are invited to visit the author’s blog, www.MaryRefugeOfHolyLove.com to learn more.

A LOVE-LETTER TO AN UNNAMED PARTY

JESUS: “This message of Holy Love is itself a refuge in troubled times, for Holy Love is the Immaculate Heart of My Mother.” (Holy Love, March 11, 1999)

In the Month of His Most Precious Blood,

July 18, 2010

Dear [Unnamed Party],

It is with all my love and best wishes in Our Lady that I send you my greetings from my own heart.  May you all be embraced and captured today by the Divine Love of Jesus Christ, Our Lord!  May His Most Sacred Heart beat in time with yours in the fullness of unity with the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  I pray that waves of this unified love spread outward, like a pebble so placed in a constant stream of brotherly charity, to all of humanity!  May God bless you ever-abundantly in all the consecrated good work that you do for the Kingdom of God!  God bless Medjugorje!

I write this letter to you all, all in charity and in deepest hope, that you will take my words into your own hearts, for fruitful consideration and sincere discernment for the truth.  And whatever happens, may God’s Divine Will be done on earth as it is in heaven!

I write to tell you about two of the greatest graces of my life.  The first grace is a blessing that you all are familiar with—that of Our Lady of All Grace, Our Lady of Medjugorje.  I am but one of the countless millions that Our Lady has brought back home to the fullness of the Catholic faith.  I thank Our Lady, all the angels and all the saints, and my brothers and sisters in Christ on earth, who prayed for me in many countless ways for conversion of souls.  Thanks Be to God!  The Almighty has done great things for me and Holy Is His Name!

The second greatest grace of my life is what unfolds in the remainder of this letter.  For, I wish to testify on the Love of Christ and the Blessed Mother through an apparition site that is located in greater Cleveland, Ohio, which you may or may not be familiar with:

It is called “Holy Love Ministry,” (holylove.org) and is a holy ground that heaven has chosen to spread timely messages for our generation and future generations.  I am not associated in anyway with Holy Love Ministry—they do not even know that I am writing this letter—my sole witnesses being heaven—and I am only a mere follower and lover of Our Lord—who is trying her best to fulfill His Divine Will on earth.  Yet, it is for this “motivating factor”—the salvation of all souls—that compels me to write this letter now.  It is only for love of them that I am reaching out to you all as you outreach to others Our Lord’s Great Love for each of us here on earth.

As you know, Our Lady comes to Medjugorje heralding the future coming of Her Son, providing monthly medicinal messages for the healing of all nations and people—for so many have become sickened in their souls to the Truth and Love of God.  And along with Her words from heaven, Our Lady also seeks to prepare the world for 10 Secrets—the first three being warnings to the world as a call for repentance and conversion; and the remainder being a series of chastisements—the last two being particularly grave.

Why am I writing this letter?  It is because I know in my heart that the Three Warnings, provided for by God, will shock the conscience of humanity.  One of the warnings might be the foretold, “Illumination of Conscience,” (Our Lady of Garabandal) and my own heart grieves for so many souls who may wander and become lost afterwards.

For as all souls on earth come face-to-face with the reality of their lives and the purpose of their very existence, many lives will be shattered in the Light of Truth.  In the aftermath, they will need an immediate and ready answer to hope and not despair.  For Catholics, they will have their local priests and the confessional to regain eternal life—

But what of the others? The ones that lack the means to the Sacramental Grace offered through the Catholic Church…  Our Lord died for them, too, for eternal salvation is offered to all.  How are we to take care of the spiritually poor, the least of our brothers and sisters?

Even once leaving the confessional, the real work begins as all people will need concrete tools on how to rebuild their lives.  So many people will hunger for any information—a lifeline—that they can grasp onto that will give them any real reason to live justly for their future.  They will need a positive and sustaining message to continue to hope in God and to live for Christ, not considering themselves a lost soul to the darkness.

How has Our Lord provided for this response from all of humanity?

It is the Message of Holy Love.  It is the path as instructed through The Chambers of The Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord.  It is the revelation of The United Hearts of The Most Holy Trinity and The Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The messages provided through Holy Love are universal and ecumenical.  While appropriate for Catholics, the Message of Holy Love is not only limited to Christians, but embraces the whole world.  By leaving all past moments to Divine Mercy and all future moments to Divine Provision, Jesus calls all souls to focus on love and humility in the present moment by climbing the stairway of holiness virtue-by-virtue.  It is in learning this eternal truth—the true value of each present moment—that humanity will have hope again and not despair, as every soul will refocus and entrust their lives entirely to God and His Commandments of Love.

Accompanying this letter are two identical packages containing the “most sublime teachings” of the Catholic faith that I have ever encountered.  I offer them to you as the most precious gift I can give to you, my dearest brothers and sisters in Christ, for your own salvation and the salvation of the world.  All I ask is for your thoughtful prayer and sincere discernment as you read the enclosed jewels.

As JESUS says:

“Beloved, by My Precious Blood I have redeemed you.  Through this message of Holy Love I will save you.  To live in Holy Love is to live the two great commandments—love God above all else and neighbor as self.  But I offer you even more than that: to be perfected in Holy Love is to be purified in God’s Will.  Thus, you are drawn into Divine Love and union with the Trinity.  This is Heaven on earth, the Kingdom to come, the New Jerusalem.” (Holy Love, March 11, 1999)

***

Truly, as I read the Messages of Holy Love, each one caresses my soul in such a way that it causes my spirit to sing in response and soar to ever greater heavenly heights.  I feel within myself the flame of love become ignited as my heart desires passionately to be united to the Eternal Flame of Divine Love.  My only desire then becomes to plunge forever deeper into the Divine Will of God.

It is said that the highest possible gift in the world is PEACE.  But, not a peace as the world knows it, but a heavenly PEACE that takes place first in the quiet of the soul.  PEACE that is a surrendering to the Divine Will of the Father in each and every present moment.

Our Lady comes to Medjugorje as the Queen of Peace in order to offer the world this PEACE of Her Son, the Prince of Peace.

This is the great gift that JESUS offers all to experience through Holy Love in the coming “Era of Peace,” the New Jerusalem on earth:

“I have [come] to lead you into the Kingdom of My Father.  The Kingdom is Divine Will.  The way is Holy Love.  The rivers, lakes, and streams of this Kingdom are the irreversible gifts of Divine Love and Divine Mercy.  The tallest peak is unfathomable Wisdom.  The valleys are soul-drenching peace.  In My Father’s Kingdom, the United Hearts reign victorious.  There is no compromise, scandalous doubts—only bliss.  Come, then, and let Me lead you – each of you.  Give Me your will and I will transform you.  I will give this Kingdom on earth.” (Holy Love, January 11, 1999)

It is in prayer that the Blessed Mother asks each of us to come to a deeper understanding of Her coming for this day and age.  Our Lady at Medjugorje has expressed to us that she wants us to be Her “extended hands” in this troubled world.  That She “needs” each of us and that every one of us is very important to the fulfillment of God’s Plan.  That She even desires to “collaborate” with us, especially in spreading Her messages to the entire world.

Truly, [unnamed party] is a “chosen” people, commissioned especially by Our Lady, for a very special role and mission—to be an example of the loving future provided for by Our Lord and to be a “lighthouse” for those souls who wander in the darkness of sin.  For many years, [Unnamed Party] has been blessed abundantly by Our Lord; and yet, could there be even more blessings and great graces ahead?

[Unnamed Party] has written that its charism lies in the promotion of Our Lady of Medjugorje.  That, in Medjugorje, lives special and unique graces that are unmatched at previous apparition sites.  Truly, these statements are fact.

Yet, I challenge you to realize, discern, and contemplate, soaking in this very beautiful Grace-filled revelation for yourselves, for truly, if it can be said that Medjugorje is the fulfillment and completion of Fatima and all Marian apparitions throughout the centuries; it then follows that the Messages of Holy Love are the fulfillment and completion of the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart revelations and devotions throughout the centuries.

Coupled together then, both Medjugorje and Holy Love ARE the Desire of the Divine Will of God the Father for His Great Plan to unfold on earth.

As JESUS says:

“I wish to express this truth to you concerning the United Hearts revelation.  Our United Hearts—that is My Mother’s Immaculate Heart within My Sacred Heart—is embraced by the Divine Will of God, which is the Heart of the Eternal Father.  Once the soul begins the spiritual journey through the Chambers of My Heart, he is moving ever closer to the reality of this Divine Will and Eternal Heart.  The goal of all spirituality is to be united with the Eternal Father’s Heart.  It is His Divine Plan for all humanity.  It is the reason each one has been created.  It is the fulfillment of My mission on earth.”  (Holy Love, July 3, 2000)

The Blessed Mother also tells us at Holy Love:

“I come to lead you deeper into the mystery of the United Hearts of Jesus and Mary… In this devotion, I lead souls to see that Our Hearts are never separated but always joined spiritually.  Our Hearts will not reign in the New Era of Peace side by side, but united and as one.  My Son’s Heart always holds supremacy over My Immaculate Heart.  But in depicting Our Hearts as United, He shows the world that Divine Love is only approachable through Holy Love.  Living in the Divine Will is attainable by living in Holy Love.  Therefore, it is mankind’s ‘yes’ to Holy Love that unites him completely to God.  The greater his commitment to holiness in this way, the deeper his union with God…” (Holy Love, September 25, 1996)

On the night He was betrayed, Our Lord spent His final hours absorbed in intense prayer.  Sweating His Most Precious Blood, Our Lord prayed for the salvation of His people and that they always remain unified in His Love and in His Truth.

Yet, despite Our Lord’s earnest pleas to His Heavenly Father for the unity of His Body, we have witnessed throughout the centuries this unity on earth be attacked and slowly whittled away, resulting in factions of disharmony, doubt and confusion among the flock.  Clearly, the Present-Day Church is in Her Passion Hour.  Even among those closest to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart, disunity, misunderstanding and confusion, appears to rear its ugly head.

Christ prayed and suffered for unity of His Body.  For His Father’s Kingdom to come here on earth.

We pray this same prayer, in the Lord’s Prayer, the Our Father, at each Mass:

“Thy Kingdom come

Thy Will Be done

on earth as it is in heaven.”

As JESUS reveals through Holy Love:

“After My death on the Cross, I descended to a place which was neither Hell nor Purgatory—a place where many awaited Me—the patriarchs—Moses, My foster father Joseph, to name a few.  Before I released them to enter the glory of Heaven, I charged each one of them to pray for My Love and Mercy to be made known in these last days.”

“I bid them pray for the Divine Mercy Revelation and for the Confraternity of the United Hearts—the two vehicles of My Divine Love and Divine Mercy.  I made them understand that these vehicles of My Love and Mercy would convert and save a multitude before My return.  Then I sent them to Heaven.” (Holy Love, March 26, 2005)

***

Oh, my dearest brothers and sisters in Christ, how Profound is the Love of Our Lord for each of us!  For rather than forsake this most sinful generation to the forces of darkness and the antichrist spirit, Our Lord chose to Love above all else.  Instead, He prepared His Most Beloved Church for this most difficult and decisive time in human history.  For two thousand years, the Church Militant, the Church Suffering, and the Church in Heaven, have been praying in unity for now, this time, this day and age, for the greatest battle of souls!

How staggering a proposition!  How awesome a Love!

Then who am I?  I am but a mere follower and lover of Our Lady.

Yet, this is the same Lady whose final words in the Bible speak to us throughout the ages by challenging and exhorting us to “Do whatever He tells you…”

So, I beg you, my dearest brothers and sisters in Christ, to look within and ask yourselves this question:

Could the mission of [Unnamed Party] be even grander than one has even imagined?

For in this question lies the answer to what I am asking you to discern now…

I pray for your discernment as you pray to do the Will of God in all things.  Please remember me in your prayers.

I conclude now my love-letter to you with a meditation from Our Lord:

JESUS:

“I have come to you to bring light to the world.  My Heart is a burning ember of Divine Love.  It is unchanging and eternal.  It bears an unquenchable thirst for souls, which can only be satisfied by the conversion of the world.  The way into My Divine Love is Holy Love.  Holy Love sanctifies even the most mundane moment.  Holy Love opens the way and the door to My Heart.  It is the imitation of every virtue.  Therefore, understand Holy Love is the imitation of Divine Love.  How sacred a mystery and revelation this is!  Oh, that souls would understand and surrender to this way!”

“The age to come is one of hope, not despair—an age of challenge and victory.  I will bring the forces of nature in line with the Divine Plan of peace and harmony.  You will see the United Hearts reign in victory.  Like a great magnetic force, My flock will unite and be drawn into the mystery of the United Hearts.  Faith will be renewed and restored.”

“Until this age to come, persevere in belief, for I believe in you.  I am calling upon you to be strong and energetic apostles of the way of Divine and Holy Love.  These two are so closely united they cannot be parted.  No one can believe only a little or sometimes, but always and with your whole heart.  I am showing you the way into the Kingdom as it is to come.” (Holy Love, January 28, 1999)

PEACE be with you, my most cherished friends.

In His Love,

          a soul

“Let me be Your rose”

therese of lisieux, known for her “little way” to heaven, once said that she wanted to shower the earth with roses.  the rose, her calling card, usually accompany a miracle that is granted through her intercession.

but, little did i realize when i began my own path to heaven, that we are the roses that this great saint once spoke of.  because more beautiful than any earthly rose, is the exquisite rose of our spiritual hearts, our own souls that glisten in the misty dew of dawn, embraced by the shimmering rays of the morning star.

Our Lady is called the “Mystical Rose.”  it is because She is the crowning jewel in God the Father’s heavenly garden.  a loveliness in purity and perfection that is beyond our fullness of understanding on this side of heaven–the Eternal Father’s supreme delight.

and yet, each of us are a uniquely special creation and joyful delight to God’s Paternal Heart.  we are His children.  we are loved.

the Immaculate Heart of Mary is typically depicted being embraced by a crown of white roses.  could this be because we are called also to embrace this dear Mother as Her own children, born anew in precious purity and radiant holiness, in imitation of the great Mystical Rose, Our Queen in heaven?

the Blessed Mother brings us to Her Son.  through Her freely given ‘yes’ is our salvation born in Her Son.  but Her ‘yes’ cannot be limited solely to that particular moment in time, no, rather, She said ‘yes’ every continual moment of Her life.

She gave and loved beyond any other created being ever has or ever will.  for, in Her continual ‘yes,’ to God, She loved every human being that ever lived.  devoid of any self-interest, She saw with true wisdom the entire family of God in Her Heart, loving completely those who had brought Her to life in Her time, and then She carried that love for humanity into the future, loving every generation who would walk the face of the earth.

the Mystical Rose, Our Queen in Heaven, Our Dearest Mother.  oh, how i long to embrace this most tender of mothers, both in gratitude and love for the precious gift of salvation She gave me through fulfilling, in the most perfect way, all the desires of God the Father’s Divine Heart for humanity.

and yet, i know that i can embrace Her before my appointed time, by welcoming Her presence always in my own heart.

i can give to Her all that i am today, to be recreated and molded into Her total image of Love.  in doing so, i join my own little heart to Her Immaculate Heart which forever beats in time with the Most Sacred Heart of Her Son.

a spiritual trinity of Hearts then, held together by the Eternal Flame of Love, the Holy Spirit, plunged deeply in the Divine Heart of the Beloved Father.

as one walks the pathway of love, one realizes the so very precious jewel that heaven offers and beckons to each of us in Holy Love.  a love that is called to be ‘set apart’ for God’s own intentions, a Holy Love that is found in and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, which points the way always to Her Son.

as we willingly step into this Holy Love, the Sacred Chambers then open up more freely to us, laying bare and wooing us constantly, desiring at all times, to compel us forward into a deeper, more penetrating, more perfect love, that reveals at its heart, a complete and total surrender to the Most Divine Will of the Father.

the Chambers of the Most Sacred Heart.  standing at the antechamber of Holy Love, oh, how i long to progress further and be perfected through such a beautiful mystery that can only be recognized as the unity and fullness of Truth–a mystery and a revelation so sublime that it resonates and speaks to the very core of my being, my soul.

let me be Your rose, sweet, dearest Mother.  let me be that seed that waits in stillness of winter, dying to itself in springtime, in order to be transformed and reborn as a beautiful budding rose, that awakens in the fullness of the Light.

let me face the heavens, as the Father smiles down on me in pure delight.  let the rays of His Son melt upon me as the breeze of the Spirit lifts me up, glistening in the dew of a Mother’s sweet tears.  let me be perfected in a love that has no bounds.

i desire this.  i want this.  i need this.

let my every breath, my every movement, my every heartbeat, my very being belong to the United Hearts of the Most Holy Trinity and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Jesus, i trust in You!

may i always love You!

“A Masterpiece and a prayer”

as i sit and listen to love songs, i cannot help but reflect upon the most brilliant “gem” of God’s creation: His own Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary…

it is said that one sweet prayer from the Blessed Mother is more lovely to the Divine Heart of God than all the prayers of all the angels and all the saints together.  She is the Masterpiece of all His handiwork:

She is the Immaculata and IS perfect love.

it brings tears to my eyes, to even contemplate the love of Our God between Himself and His most beloved creature, the Blessed Mother.  how passionately Their United Hearts must beat together as One!

it has been said by the mystics that all of creation reflects Her beauty:

when God painted the skies, He painted them with the blue of Her eyes;

when God colored the rays of the sunrise, it was to match the color of Her sweet complexion;

and when God chose the shades of the rose, they were to reflect the beauty of Her cheeks.

like the moon is to the sun, She reflects the perfect love of God to all of us here, Her spiritual children.

and when i think about how unfaithful all of us are here on earth, i am always reminded of the Blessed Mother and Her great love for God.  and i thank God for blessing us all with such a sweet and tender Mother to have and hold in our hands always.

i thank God so much, that out of all of Adam’s unfaithful offspring, at least one of us succeeded in capturing the crown of virtue, the Loving Heart of God in All Its Totality.  that one of us remained ever faithful to His commands: to love above all else, God and neighbor, the two greatest commandments.

where all of us failed and fell short, one person in the human race loved above all costs, God and all of us, more than Herself.  and due to Her great, immaculate, perfect love of God, She saved the human race…

the Blessed Mother gave and gave and gave all of Her Heart to us all.  She loved and loved and continues to love.

Her free will “Yes”–the Fiat–permitted God to Incarnate as Man, to save us all.  and She kept saying “Yes” every moment of Her life–Yes to love, and Yes to all of us here.

despite the sorrow of losing Her only Son in the crucifixion… despite having to bury Him and leave His Body behind in an unmarked tomb…

the Blessed Mother alone kept the Hope of the Promise of the Redeemer alive.  She alone continued to believe and have faith in God in the Resurrection, while the rest of Her Son’s followers, the apostles, left Her Son behind…

and She forgave every one of Her Son’s persecutors, completely in Her Heart.  She, the Sinless One, forgave each of us for our sins.

She loved, as no other person ever has, or ever will, God and all of humanity.  in Her alone, is God’s crowning jewel and perfection reached for all humanity.  for, if all the human race is the perfection of creation, the Blessed Mother is the perfection, the “par excellence,” of all the human race.

to Her alone, God manifested all His Glory.  to Her alone, She is the Queen of All.

oh, how i love Her, the Blessed Mother.  thank You, Blessed Mother, for being the hope for my salvation.  thank You, Blessed Mother, for thinking of me and remembering me at Your “Fiat” and in every Yes, You said throughout Your life here on earth.

thank You, Blessed Mother, for succeeding for where i failed.  thank You, Blessed Mother, for Your love for me, both now and always.

thank You, Blessed Mother, for Your great love for each of us, from heaven.  in countless times and in countless ways, You have blessed us and saved us time and again, from the folly and madness of our own sin and self-destructive ways.

when You come to Medjugorje every day, You bless the world and each of us, with Your presence.

by Your presence alone, walking on the earth, You save us from the wrath of God’s impending judgment on us all.  Christ looks at the tears in Your eyes, as You gaze from the earth to His Throne above in heaven.

and in Your sweet fragrance, the prayer found in the beating of Your Heart in unity with His Own Heart, the Mighty Arm of God is stayed one more day from striking us here.

You appease the Great Divine Heart of God, which is so sorrowful at our sinful state in the world.

since Medjugorje began on June 24, 1981, the world lives on “borrowed time”…  in this time of Divine Mercy and Time of Grace, the Eternal Son sent His Own Mother, to visit us and prepare us, each day, for a New Springtime and a New Pentecost in the Church…

our “borrowed time” is Your time, sweet Mother.  in the beginning of the new age to come, the Great Era of Peace, the Age of Mary, let each of us walk with You, dear Mother, each day, shining one soul at a time, in a wave of holiness that envelopes the entire world and captivates it in total love of God.

let each of us be recreated in Your image, sweet Mother, so we can be the perfect disciple of Your Son, Jesus.

take all of our prayers, petitions, tears, sacrifices, sufferings, failures, triumphs and joys.  purify and perfect them in Your Immaculate Heart.  and present them all at the Feet of Your Son.

oh, Blessed Mother, continue to love us, Your spiritual children.  pray for us, sweet Mother.  oh, how i love You!

God bless the world, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, through His Mother.  God bless us all.  amen.

BEAUTIFUL MUSIC

My beloved family in Christ, sometimes, in my private writings and personal letters, I wonder things—perhaps, silly things for some people—but most important matters of the heart to me…  If I may, I want to share with you one such private thought now:

“…i know that i have wondered this with you before, but i wonder if God sings?

and i wonder if every Word He speaks is a sweet melody that carries on in one never-ending note.  if all of Creation is simply one everlasting love-song…

…that in one very moving moment, Jesus and His Father began to sing a beautiful love-song Together that the Holy Spirit has been carrying ever since.  a note that became a melody that harmonized us all into being.

i hope that Jesus sings.  and that His Sacred Heart beats in time with every note He sings, so that all of Creation is forever in tune with His Mind, His Heart, His Love.

if Jesus does sing, i wonder if all of Creation pauses to hear Its Creator sing?

i like to think so, that Jesus is so mesmerizing and captivating that one beautiful note from His Lips has all of Creation in awe…”

(written 12/10/10)

*                 *                 *

Jesus has been so very good and generous to me.  He inspired me to liken the Divine Will and the Divine Love of God to a great symphony.  So, I have been enraptured in these heavenly thoughts for several days.

I have learned that every prayer, every sacrifice, every virtuous deed, every gift of every precious moment of time given over to Our Lord and Our Love becomes a great symphony that Jesus listens to at the end of our lives.

And as each loving note is played before Our Great Love, the notes beat together like the sweet rhythm of our own hearts.  Heartbeat-to-heartbeat, each loving note comes together until they beat in total and complete unison with the Eternal Heartbeat of Our Lord’s Most Sacred Heart.

One knows, through studying the Holy Love messages, that the goal of all mankind—the reason why every person was created on earth—the fulfillment of the Eternal Father’s Divine Plan and the Desire of the Eternal Father’s Divine Heart for all humanity, is for each soul to be immersed in the Divine Will of God in the Highest Heaven.

I have learned that the Divine Will and the Divine Heart of God are inseparable and indivisible.  They are ONE because God Is ONE.

God Is ONE Love.  ONE-In-Three Holy and Divine Persons: The Eternal Father Loving The Divine Son Loving The Eternal Father In Agape Love, The Holy Spirit.

And so, the goal of all mankind should be to prepare our hearts and our souls to make the spiritual jump from time and space to eternity, where everything and everyone co-exists ONE with The Lord:

One In His Divine Will.  One In His Divine Love.  One In His Most Sacred Heartbeat.  One In His Most Sacred Heart.

At Holy Love, Jesus has laid bare the Sacred Chambers of His Divine Heart for all of humanity to see.  His Most Sacred Heart is an open wound of Love that calls each us to assuage.  It is up to each of us then to recognize this Holy Path—the ultimate spiritual journey—that He is beckoning each one of us individually to undertake.

And so, we must attune our lives—living each present moment fully in love and perfecting ourselves in virtue—so that the melody we create in our souls rises to the heavens—carrying us higher and higher to complete union with the Divine Heart of the Eternal Father:

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“When you receive Me in the Eucharist, I desire that our hearts become like notes in a symphony, flowing together, making beautiful music together. If I could be united like this with each heart, all would abide in the Divine Will. We would make beautiful symphonies together, Me and each heart. There would be no more wars, immorality or compromise of the truth.”

“Today people say they stand for the truth, but the truth they support is only a lie. If souls would unite to My Eucharistic Heart, they would be united with the Truth Itself.”

(Holy Love, June 19, 2008)

I love You Lord.

Spiritual Inspirations:

At Holy Love, St. Thomas Aquinas once said:

“Through the Eucharist, the Will of God is present in the world–completely, perfectly and eternally. Then, understand that the Fifth Chamber–union with the Divine Will–is offered to each one who partakes of the Holy Eucharist. Praise be to Jesus.”

(Holy Love, February 8, 2003)

I (the visionary) saw a beam of Light with angels alongside of it. Jesus stepped out of the Light. He said:

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate. This Light is the Heart of My Father in Heaven – His Divine Will. It reaches down to earth from the highest Heaven and shines through every Chamber of Our United Hearts.”

“It is only through this Light the United Hearts and the Chambers herein exist. At its source – the Heart of the Eternal Father – lies the Sixth Chamber. The power of this Chamber diffuses through all the other Chambers. Then it reaches beyond into the world, drawing sinners into Holy Love – the Immaculate Heart of My Mother.”

“The Light of the Sixth Chamber will bring into harmony man’s free will with the Divine at the coming Triumph of Our United Hearts.”

(Holy Love, April 4, 2003)

St. Margaret Mary Alacoque says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“My sister, when Jesus comes to you in the Most Holy Eucharist, He desires that you know He comes as the Redeeming Savior, as His Most Sacred Heart and as the United Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Yes, every Chamber in His Heart of Hearts is present in the Most Holy Eucharist. The Immaculate Heart of Mary can never be separated from the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Blood of the Mother flows through the Blood of Her Son.”

“In the future scholars will acknowledge this Divine Truth. For now, truth is recognized according to the court of public opinion, and also denied for the same reasons.”

“Understand, dear sister, that all these human motives for suppressing truth will pass away, but the truth will remain as the truth.”

(Holy Love, October 16, 2009)

THE GREAT PAUSE

“Father, into Your Hands, I commend my spirit.”
JESUS

Oftentimes, I wonder what my final moments in life will be like.  And since I recognize myself as being a poor sinner, I ask God that He grant me just one moment of perfect love in time in the end—

That’s all I ask.

One singular moment of perfect love.  A moment of perfect love for God and neighbor.  A moment of perfect selfless love.

One singular moment of perfect love that casts out all fears.  Including the greatest fear of all—death.

A precious moment in time, in which I can reflect upon in praise for all eternity, having loved in imitation of the perfect love that the Blessed Mother has always had for Her First Love, Our Lord.  How blessed is Our Sweet Mother!

One singular moment of realizing the Love of Christ in me.

One singular moment of His Most Sacred Heart having beat in union with my own heart.  Such an exquisite state of ecstatic love that would be, so much so, that my soul would take immediate flight to My Love in heaven.

This is my life prayer.

A sweet moment when I will realize that all I could have ever dreamed and prayed for in my entire life is answered.  As I realize fully my own human potential and the reason for why I was created by Our Father.

A sweet moment when I realize completely that The One Whom I love with all my heart, all my soul, all my mind, and all my strength, Loves me back.

My heart in His Heart.  My love in His Love.  My Soulmate and My First Love.  My God.

Sometimes, I imagine my final moment as one being perched on a high precipice.

In 1986, at the prayer group in Medjugorje, Our Lady once said:

“If you would abandon yourselves to me, you will not even feel the passage from this life to the next life. You will begin to live the life of Heaven on earth.”

And so, at the moment that I deeply inhale and exhale my last breath, forever mingling with the Breath of Life, The Holy Spirit, I step off the ledge, walking forward in the hands of Our Blessed Mother, rising to the miracle of new life in Our Heavenly Father, while I fall forever in love with My Savior, Jesus.

Caught in, surrounded by, and destined for Absolute Love.

So that, in my final moment and in my final state, my soul plunges deeply into The Divine Heart of The Eternal Father—The Highest Heaven and The Sixth Chamber of Holy and Divine Love.

An abandonment.  A total surrendering.  A complete trust in The Object of My Love that He will save me in the end.

My God.  My Love.  Embrace me in Your Arms!  Oh, how much I love Thee!  You Are The Center of My World!

Ah, how sweet… The ultimate walk from time and space into eternity…

Hope.  Faith.  Love.  Only love remains.

For the light of faith informs the mind and hope endures to strengthen the heart…

But love?

Love IS the soul in the end.

Psalm 22.

Jesus on the Cross.

“My God, My God, why have You abandoned me?” becomes “Father, into Your Hands, I commend my spirit” to “It is finished.”

Abandonment.  Surrender.  Trust.

The Eternal Exchange of Divine Love between The Father and The Son in The Holy Spirit.

The Life of The Most Holy Trinity from eternity into time into eternity.

Christ.  His Birth, His Life, His Death, His Risen Life.

Anticipation for The Moment to be fully lived.  The climax of a great love-song.  Decrescendo, crescendo, a crescendo.    In imitation of My Love.

“JESUS, I love You!  May I always trust in You!”

Jesus is here with His Heart exposed. He says:

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“My brothers and sisters, appease My Most Sacred Heart and the Sorrowing Heart of My Mother by propagating the Messages of Holy and Divine Love. Do not worry about what people think of you, nor should you defend the Messages. Just put them into peoples’ hands, and pray that they open their hearts.”

 “Tonight I’m blessing you with My Blessing of Divine Love.”

In the holy month of September 2011

Greetings!

My Dearly Beloved

I love you all…

Our Lady of Medjugorje

“Dear children!”

“Also today, I call all of you to grow in God’s love as a flower which feels the warm rays of spring. In this way, also you, little children, grow in God’s love and carry it to all those who are far from God. Seek God’s will and do good to those whom God has put on your way, and be light and joy.”

“Thank you for having responded to my call.”

***

“the wildflower”

When I first converted to the Catholicism of my childhood, oftentimes, I would be overcome with tears of thankfulness for all Our Lord has done for me.  And in these sweet moments, I would have a strong desire to give to Our Lord a “gift” to somehow show Him my total and complete gratitude for His Love.

I would think to myself how marvelous it would be to search all of Creation every year for the perfect flower—to represent all my love for My Lord—and to present it to Him at His Throne every Easter in heaven.  And I would fancy this thought often, thinking if I just found that perfect flower, how delighted My Lord would be in this thoughtful gift.

Then, as I progressed along in my faith, I learned that the perfect flower that I was envisioning to present to My Lord every year was, in fact, me.

St. Therese of Lisieux, “The Little Flower,” is a special and dearly loved saint of mine.

She taught me through her writings that each of us is a flower in the heavenly garden of God the Father.

She taught me that each soul is an exquisitely perfect creation in its own right.  Forever unique and precious, I learned that each of us holds a special and irreplaceable spot in heaven.

Called to be a beautiful flower—whether a rose, a tulip, or a carnation—together as the family of God we give forth the glory of The Lord and bring fragrant delight to His heavenly garden.

And so, often I would pray to my elder sister in love, St. Therese, that she would obtain the graces that I would need to become the beautiful flower that God desired me to be.

And knowing myself to be unworthy of being the lovely rose, I prayed that I would become at least a dandelion in the heavenly garden…  Which I learned then to be a weed, but I asked pardon from God for my ignorance as all creations of Our Lord are made to be good and beautiful in His Holy Sight.

St. Gemma Galgani, “The Passion Flower,” is also a special and dearly loved saint of mine.

Considered a “super-star” in my eyes, I know and believe that she prays for me all the time in my continual conversion to Our Lord.  Her brief and delicate life has shown me how to live in love of Our Lord amidst the darkest of temptations.  And I thank her with all my heart for loving me always in her prayers.

And so, one day in prayer, I asked my two elder sisters in love, St. Therese and St. Gemma, if they would honor me in my heavenly request of searching with me all of Creation for the perfect flower each year to present to Jesus for Easter.  Because, even though I knew it to be true that Jesus desired me to be that perfect flower, I could not see myself as aspiring to be nothing more than a poor dandelion (a weed).

Well, then I had the heavenly thought that rather than assuming the role of a poor dandelion for all eternity, that I should think of myself as a “wildflower” in Our Father’s garden.

And this, I could accept for myself.

Me, the wildflower… A wildflower of God.

Our Lady of Medjugorje

“Dear children, once again I desire to call you to prayer. When you pray, you are much more beautiful, like flowers which, after the snow, show all their beauty and all their colors become indescribable. So also you, dear children, after prayer show more before God all that is beautiful to please Him. Therefore, dear children, pray and open your inner self to the Lord so that He makes of you a harmonious and beautiful flower for Paradise. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

October 25, 1994

Our Lady of Medjugorje

“Dear children, I am with you and I rejoice today because the Most High has granted me to be with you and to teach you and to guide you on the path of perfection. Little children, I wish you to be a beautiful bouquet of flowers which I wish to present to God for the day of All Saints. I invite you to open yourselves and to live, taking the saints as an example. Mother Church has chosen them, that they may be an impulse for your daily life. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

*                 *                  *

It is easy for me to think of myself as the “prodigal daughter” of Our LordTruly, my faithfulness and fidelity have been tested countless times.

I am an imperfect being.  I have stumbled and fallen on the road of life far too frequently…  But, the one thing that I am certain of, is that despite my inadequacies and weaknesses, I can be perfected in Christ, My Savior.  I am certain because I have His Promise in His Word and the living record and testimony of His Beloved Saints in heaven.

I want to tell you, my beloved family, that since my last writings to you, I have been heavily persecuted by the evil ones around us. I became ill physically and experienced extreme mental torment.  I had to take a medical leave from my full-time job and lost my spiritual compass towards God.

I slipped and ultimately lost my footing on the sure and narrow path of Jesus.

A person of simple prayer, I love to sing to God for many hours a day in my alone time with Him.  But, the music of my heart died and I could no longer sing or listen to sweet love melodies made for My Savior.

I became crippled and extremely discouraged by the relentless attacks—

And tired.  So very, very, very tired.  Of fighting the “good fight” again.

I wandered.  I truly abandoned God in my soul.

But, unbeknownst to me, many people were praying for me—many of whom who did not know that I was struggling spiritually and had abandoned God.

Many people prayed.  Prayed when I did not for myself.

And from these ashes, God resurrected a miracle of life again in me.  He brought me back from the dead.

Because of, truly, two things:

One, I know God exists and His Name Is Jesus.  I know this to be The Truth with absolute certainty—I have had too many supernatural occurrences in my life to deny the existence of God.  It would be like denying the air that I breathe.

And two, I promised God eight years ago when I returned to the faith that I would persevere—if not for my own salvation, but for the salvation of all the people who prayed for and continue to pray for me.

Eight years ago, when I converted to God, I saw with spiritual eyes the direction that the world was headed in and how lost the world was without The Lord.  I saw with spiritual eyes the people that I loved—my family, my friends, everyone I had ever known or would know in this life, and it moved my heart.

I recognized that many people—many of them unknown to me—had prayed for my salvation in God.  From the countless rosaries from little old ladies, to the prayer circles of all good Christian souls, to the simple “God bless you” by a stranger on the street—all of this prayer had converged for the special moment in my life when I would finally return to God—my own fiat.

And I was so grateful.  To everyone.

And so then, I recognized that it was my turn to pray for them and everyone that God placed—graced to put—in my path throughout my entire life.  It was my turn now.

There are people in the world—some of whom I may never personally meet or know in this lifetime—who are not going to make it to heaven without prayer from me.

My prayer to God IS important.  Human souls are at stake.

And so, once again, God reminded me of my promise eight years ago to persevere, as He has time and again when I am falling away from Him.

He resurrected me.

Once again.

Since I was in high school, I have carried on me this little clipping from a Reader’s Digest magazine.  It is an anonymous quote that reads:

“Courage is the strength to let go of the familiar.”

And this simple quote has been a bit of inspiration for me in my adult life.  Especially meant for those moments when I needed to be “lifted up” by A Power Higher than myself.

I have never thought of myself as a courageous person.  By nature, I avoid “extreme things.”  But, I have realized that I do not have to be a police officer or firefighter or something similar in life to be considered courageous.  Rather, I only need to have courage at the moments when it counts.

Courage can be found in perseverance.  Courage is found in persevering in our universal faith.

I am a courageous person by grace.  All Christian souls are—we must not forget that and why our prayer is so important.  Especially in today’s age.

*                 *                 *

On August 13, 2001, this public message was given at Holy Love Ministry:

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“Please comprehend that courage is the ballast which keeps the ship of your soul afloat amidst every storm. Courage is perseverance in the face of adversity. The courageous soul more readily surrenders to My Father’s Will in the present moment.”

“The courageous soul is like a little flower which blooms amidst the rocks and obstacles of life. Not beaten down nor discouraged by what lies around him, the courageous soul turns its face towards Me and reaches the fullness of salvation. Such a one trusts Me – surrenders to Me. It is the test of courage that proves the soul’s love for Me.”

“Such a soul, I embrace and nurture. I caress it with a soft shower of grace, and warm it with My Divine Love. These little blossoms – these courageous souls – I pluck from the earth and lay at My Mother’s Feet. These are the ones that console Her.”

*                  *                 *

I am a wild child—a wildflower of God.  Being perfected by His grace and by His Love each day.

In fact, we all are flowers—little flowers of God’s Glory and His Goodness.  Being nurtured by His grace and His Love each day to blossom in the fullness of His Light in heaven.

And in particular, we all can be considered a wildflower of God.  Because each of us has unique vulnerabilities and difficulties in life that, if we overcome them, become the unique beauty of God’s providing grace and a testimony to God’s Heavenly Glory.

My beloved brothers and sisters, there are two unique stumbling blocks that are presented to me as I continue to write this dear love-letter to you:

One, will I fall again?  Will I be attacked in fury by the evil ones who desire to stop my love-letter writing?  Will my unique spiritual weaknesses be challenged again, in such a crippling way, that I can no longer continue?

And two, I wonder of my “reputation” of what the readers of this love-letter will think of me.  Here, I advocate following the glorious path—the way of salvation, holiness, perfection, and sanctity in The Most Sacred Chambers of The United Hearts of Jesus and Mary, when I, myself, cannot stay steadily and consistently on this path of virtue towards Heaven myself…

Am I a hypocrite?

And yet, by His providing grace, I am challenged to overcome these two unique faults today.  To continue on the sure path of Love and Truth—

Jesus is calling me to trust.  To surrender to Himself and His provision. To not worry about a potential future that has not happened and may not ever happen to me.  To live in the present moment of grace, in the fruit of love and trust in God—as He tells us to do so, through The Most Sacred Chambers of The United Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

And secondly, most especially, to be obedient to His Words of propagating the Holy Love messages, and to live in holy humility, by setting aside my cares of my own reputation before others.  To rather, instead, follow the recent heavenly words of St. Therese of Lisieux at Holy Love:

“In truth, the humble soul does not rash judge. He never sees his opinion as judge and jury. He opens his heart to the facts. He humbly makes allowances. He never presumes to have perfect discernment.”  (Holy Love, September 9, 2011)

I am not perfect and I do not have perfect discernment.  But, by what I lack in myself, God provides for the remainder.  God provides, not me.

I have many hopes, my dearly beloved brothers and sisters…  I hope that, despite my inadequacies and weaknesses, you will continue to listen to my words and will one day soon embrace the messages of heavenly hope at Holy Love Ministry.

I hope, with all my heart, that you all will realize the validity and desires of God for Holy Love Ministry to be a part of your holy mission before Him.

I pray with all my heart for the salvation of the world for this intention.

That your hearts will open and blossom before The Lord.  Like little wildflowers gently dancing in the springtime field to the delight of God the Father.

*                 *                 *

March 25, 1988

Our Lady of Medjugorje

“Dear children, today also I am calling you to a complete surrender to God. You, dear children, are not conscious of how God loves you with such a great love. Because of it He permits me to be with you so I can instruct you and help you to find the way of peace. That way, however, you cannot discover if you do not pray. Therefore, dear children, forsake everything and consecrate your time to God and then God will bestow gifts upon you and bless you. Little children, do not forget that your life is fleeting like the spring flower which today is wondrously beautiful, but tomorrow has vanished. Therefore, pray in such a way that your prayer, your surrender to God may become like a road sign. That way, your witness will not only have value for yourselves, but for all of eternity. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

On December 14, 2010, this public message was given at Holy Love Ministry:

St. Thomas Aquinas says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“You have been asking in your heart how it is the Blessed Mother could be sad in Heaven over the sins in the world. Remember, there is no element of time in Heaven. Therefore, emotions are not confined or dictated by a time frame.”

“Take, for instance, this little flower. [He is now holding a small, little flower.] When you see it, you appreciate its beauty; yet in your heart you realize it is not long until it will wither and die. So, in the same moment, you enjoy the flower but realize its beauty is brief, and so you have a little sadness in your heart, too. That is as closely as I can relate to you how Our Blessed Mother can feel the joys of Heaven and still weep for the sins of mankind all at once.”

“You cannot fully realize what it is like to exist outside of time in this life.”

*                 *                 *

We all only have “so much” time to be graced to walk this earth.  We all are created beautiful—beautiful creations—in the Eyes of God.

But, whether we carry that beauty forward into eternity, is up to us and our free-will choices in this lifetime.  Earthly life is a test for our eternal destination upon our own passing.  It is up to each of us to make the better choice.  To cooperate with the graces that we are given in each and every present moment.

I pray that the light of grace will enlighten your holy path today.  In this very moment and always.

I love you all.

PEACE be with you, my most cherished friends.

In His Love,

          a soul

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“Today I have come to invite everyone to become laborers for the Kingdom of God. Help Me to reinforce faith with these Messages of Holy Love. Do not fear provoking controversy – even persecution. I have walked that path before you.”

“Your position must be to spread the Message. It is free will that determines how it is received. Great changes must be effected in hearts to change what is coming – even to mitigate it. Pray for all unbelievers – most especially those who spread error.”

September 9, 2011

Jesus is here with His Heart exposed. He says:

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“My brothers and sisters, I have come to tell you that this MISSION [Holy Love], as it stands here today, consoles My Mother’s Sorrowing Heart in these troubled times. Further, I tell you that the prayers that have been offered here at this site and continued to be offered here, were My consolation during My Passion. Never be discouraged in coming here to pray. Continue in Holy Boldness.”

“I’m imparting to you My Blessing of Divine Love.”

September 11, 2011

Blessed Mother says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come as your country commemorates the events of 9/11 so many years ago. I would be remiss if I did not point out to you that the greatest threat still remains in your midst, ready to destroy lives, whole nations and life as you know it. This threat is not economic in nature – nor is it terrorism, a natural disaster or some cosmic event. The greatest threat to your peace and security around the world is the evil that is in hearts.”

“It is this evil which brings about all these other catastrophes as God allows. Evil opposes truth; the more truth is compromised in hearts, the more distant the human free will from God’s Divine Will.”

“This is why this Mission is focused on Holy Love in the heart, for Holy Love is truth. All other paths lead away from the truth and destroy right reason in the heart.”

“Each individual and all of mankind still have time to change course. Choose wisely according to Holy Love. The future depends on it.”

HERE I AM LORD

Holy Love
September 19, 2011

One of my favorite pastimes is to sing to Our Lord.

I love to sing love-songs to Jesus.

I will pick a few songs and I will sing them over and over to Him.  Sometimes for hours on end—

Silly, huh?

When I was returning to the faith, I read a book on the early Christian martyrs.  There was one particular martyr who captivated me—it was St. Cecilia.  I really admired her fervent faith and love of God.  So, I told myself, that if I have the opportunity to pick a patron saint, it would be her…

Little did I know then that St. Cecilia is the patroness for music…  She became my Confirmation Saint a year or so later.

I find that Jesus Is very amusing in how He arranges the coincidences in my life.

Oftentimes, Jesus’ coincidences will involve music.  Like having a particular song or melody play on the radio just when I need to hear it and least expect it—

Like my favorite song, “I Can Only Imagine” by Mercy Me…

When I go to church, I am oftentimes very cognizant that I am surrounded by the angels and the saints in heaven.  During Mass, most of the time, I spend my time in prayer with my eyes closed.

For me, keeping my eyes closed helps to keep my attention focused on heaven.  Sometimes, I’ll think about the celestial choir of angels flying above me in a beautiful array, singing to God.

And so, I will actively join my voice in song with the angels.

But, even when I am not at Mass and I am simply singing alone at home, sometimes, I ask the angels and saints to sing with me, too.

At first, I was hesitant to do this—to ask my guardian angels and the saints in heaven to sing along with me…  After all, I could not see them, but as our faith informs us, they are an invisible reality of God’s Truth.  So, I began to ask…

And the amazing part of the story is that I began to realize in my heart that they said ‘yes.’

Sometimes, I will be surprised.  Like the time when Moses came to me in a song.  I was singing on repeat the song, “Here I Am” by Downhere, when I had a very strong impression of Moses in my mind.  So, I asked him to sing the song as a duet with me—

Moses in heaven and me on earth, singing together, to Our Lord.

And it was very beautiful to me, the love I felt for God in my heart at the time—it moved me to tears.  And, subsequently, every time, I would sing the song, “Here I Am” to God, I would get a strong impression to ask Moses to sing with me.

Then, it was only a few months later that I finally realized why Moses loved that particular song so much.  Because those words, “here I am,” were the first words that Moses responded with to God at the burning bush at Mt. Sinai.

Yes, that is Jesus and His coincidences.  Oh, how much I love My God!

I once wrote to you all pondering the thought of whether Jesus sings?  I wondered if all of Creation began as a beautiful song between God the Father and His Son in the love of the Holy Spirit?

I don’t know if that is how Creation began…  But, it is a lovely thought to think about.

Currently, I have three secular love-songs on repeat.  They are three of some of my favorite songs to sing to Our Lord.  Because they speak of marital bliss and, ultimately, happiness in God.

I am not married.  And, because I have given my life over to The Lord, I will never have the opportunity to “walk down the aisle” on a beautiful wedding day as young ladies often dream about.

But, Our Lord reminded me at Mass one time, that every Sunday is an opportunity to “walk down the aisle” to Our Lord, the ultimate and true love of our lives.

And so, I take great care each time that I approach The Lord for Holy Eucharist.  Because I love Jesus so much, I try to imagine every Holy Communion as a brand-new wedding day for me.

I do not know what others do to prepare themselves for Holy Communion, but oftentimes, as I prepare to “walk down the aisle,” I will simply pause and look at the sea of expectant faces in the church awaiting to take Holy Eucharist—

And I will thank God for the presence of every person celebrating at that Mass.

Then, as I “walk down the aisle,” I will pray in unity with the Blessed Mother and all the angels and saints at Mass for the Blessed Mother’s intentions.  I will thank Jesus for saving all our lives and I will also thank Him for the poor souls from purgatory, who are also walking down the aisle beside us, about to enter Heaven.  As it brings me such great joy to know that souls are joining God at that Mass for the first time forever falling in love with Him in Heaven.

Finally, I will say a Glory Be to God and “I love You, Lord,” before I take a Eucharistic kiss from My Lord.

I began this writing with a recent quote from Our Lord through Holy Love Ministry.  In the quote, Jesus exhorts us to ‘Be the Message’ – so that others will accept the invitation to live their lives united in Holy and Divine Love.

Society often advertises, ‘Be yourself’ by challenging oneself to be all one can be—independent and free from others.  Yet, Jesus challenges us to be the opposite.  To forget about oneself and to instead live for others.  To be dependent on God and have ultimate freedom in Him.

Who is right?  Obviously, it is God.  But, what does it exactly mean to ‘Be the Message’?

I have been mulling over this thought tonight, as I have written this love-letter to you all, while also, singing my love-songs to Jesus, of course.

This I know: I cannot be more than the person I am at this moment.  I rely on God’s grace—whether I acknowledge Him or not—to be alive at this very moment.

Also, I know that the keystone to the Holy Love Messages is living in the present moment.  Because the present moment is all that is guaranteed to us by God.

My dearest brothers and sisters, this may come as a surprise to you all, but I want you all to realize that ‘present moments’ are slipping away…

What do I mean by ‘present moments are slipping away’?  Let me explain.

Every Sunday, each of us as good Catholics partake in Holy Communion to be with Our Lord.  But, how many of us realize that we are “walking down the aisle” first?

Sometimes, we get so wrapped up in the future moment of being able to take Holy Eucharist, we forget about all the ‘present moments’ preceding the special moment, and as a consequence, our preparation is not as strong as it should have or could have been.

We lose the present moment of grace for ourselves, because we are so tied to the future which has not been given to us yet.

Yet, God Is not asking us to live solely for the future—even if we see the future as a glorious moment of partaking in the Holy Eucharist—rather, God Is asking us to live in the ‘Eternal Now’ in which He dwells—because the present moment Is His immediate gift of love to us.

My brothers and sisters in Christ, I may not make it to my next Holy Eucharist.  I may never see the great evangelization that is sure to come in the future through Medjugorje.  But, I do know that I have this present moment to change the world now.

“Here I am, Lord,” says Moses.  “Here I am, Lord,” says me.

The opportunity is here.  The opportunity is now.  To change the world for a better future.

On September 5, 2011, Jesus informs us at Holy Love:

“…Great changes must be effected in hearts to change what is coming – even to mitigate it…”

And then, on September 19, 2011, St. Michael gave us this message at Holy Love:

St. Michael says: “Praise be to Jesus.”‘

“These days people, for the most part, do not pay heed to what spirit is inspiring their thoughts, words and deeds. This is the reason Satan holds sway over so many hearts and so many situations. Mankind is never given the present moment to fritter away on worldly and selfish desires, but to fulfill God’s Will and to serve his neighbor.”

“Events are unfolding now which will test hearts and fulfill ancient prophecy. Those that do not embrace Holy Love will lack understanding. Many will be gripped by fear. Pray for your leaders in religious circles and in governments that they will pay heed as to what spirit they follow.”

*                 *                 *

Oh, my dearest brothers and sisters in Christ!  How precious is the present moment to Our Lord!

Oh, how I hope that you all will embrace this present moment in time!

Can you say to Him now, Our Beloved Lord, “here I am”?  I AM Yours, My God!

How sweet must be the words of a soul’s continual fiat in love to Our Lord!

God bless you all, my sweet family of God, as you contemplate the messages of Holy Love…

I love you all.

I wish you all the most sweetest blessings from my heart to yours, my dearly beloved family in Christ!  May God bless you and keep you all safe in His Arms for all things!  May the Blessed Mantle of Our Lady cover you always and draw you closest to the Love of God as your hearts forever entwine with the Divine Heart of The Father!

I love you all!  God bless Medjugorje!

My dearest family in love, I am inspired by My Love tonight to tell you a story that happened to me this past Sunday, September 25th.

As typical with me, I was passing my time singing love-songs to Our Lord…  And then, I looked up at the clock and realized that I was going to be late to Sunday Mass.

So, since I was not properly dressed for the day, I scrambled to throw on clothing in order to be presentable for The Mass.  As for my usual wardrobe, I wore my favorite gray sackcloth-like dress and black pants for church.

Well, my dearly beloved brothers and sisters, as I sat in the pews waiting for The Mass to begin and trying hard to compose myself mentally for the celebration, I glanced down at the collar of my dress and it looked strangely odd…  Then, I had the mental thought, “oh, no, I reversed my clothing!”

And being the silly girl that I am, from that point on, I could not mentally focus on The Mass as I usually do…  I kept thinking about the tags of my clothing being worn on the outside of my clothing.  My pride was rearing an ugly head, and I kept thinking about escaping to the restroom to fix my outfit during The Mass—

All the while, I kept recognizing the vanity in my soul for even being so preoccupied mentally with my clothing, as I also recognized the constant bombardment of vain thinking was being prompted by the evil one.

So, I kept praying to God, “oh, please, help me get through this, Oh Lord!  Please keep me humble.  Please help me as I present myself to You, Our Heavenly King, for Holy Eucharist, while thinking that the entire church has eyes on my clothing!”

I prayed, “My God, help me, please break me of my vanity and prideful thinking!”

And so, that was my Mass experience last Sunday.  An entire hour focused almost exclusively on myself as I could not concentrate on the holiness of the hour at hand.  It was awful to confront the ugliness of my pride during that Mass.

Well, after The Mass, I left the church as soon as feasible for me to do so, and went to the restroom to change.  It was then that I realized my sackcloth dress was NOT reversed at all.  In fact, I had spent the entire hour worrying about nothing—

I could not believe it.  I was so stupid.

Then, I was reminded of my most recent love-letter to [Unnamed Party].  In my most recent love-letter, I wrote about being a wildflower of God and I reflected that each of us, in our own special way, can be considered a wildflower of God, “…Because each of us has unique vulnerabilities and difficulties in life that, if we overcome them, become the unique beauty of God’s providing grace and a testimony to God’s Heavenly Glory…”

I was then reminded about these Bible verses:

“No one can serve two masters.  He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat [or drink], or about your body, what you will wear.  Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?  Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they?   Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span?   Why are you anxious about clothes? Learn from the way the wild flowers grow.  They do not work or spin.  But I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was clothed like one of them.  If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith?   So do not worry and say, ‘What are we to eat?’ or ‘What are we to drink?’ or ‘What are we to wear?’   All these things the pagans seek.  Your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.  But seek first the kingdom (of God) and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides.  Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself.  Sufficient for a day is its own evil.”  (Matthew, Chapter 6: 24-34)

*                 *                 *

And as I reflected upon these Bible verses, it made me realize several things:

Firstly, I realized that the journey of faith in life is oftentimes so much like my experience with my dress at Mass.  Oftentimes, we step forward on our walk towards The Lord, only to get bombarded by temptations and all the negativisms of life, that makes us feel like we going backwards by the choices we make.

Yet, all along, while we are thinking that we are heading in reverse or circles spiritually, in fact, truly, we are ever moving constantly forward towards God, never missing even a step.

For, if we never faced the temptations of sin in life, we would never be able to appreciate the progress we finally do make spiritually in the love of God.  It takes the darkness of the night to recognize and appreciate ever better The Light of The Coming Day.

Thus, God never abandons us.  We may not feel His Arms around us all the time, but He always has His Hand in ours.  Just like the famous poem, Footprints, reveals to us.  He carries us to Himself always—most especially in our darkest moments—because we are His children and He Is Our Beloved Father.

The Father loves each of us unconditionally.  He only asks our love and trust in all matters in response to His Gracious Love.

And secondly, I realized evermore the importance of the present moment.

I struggled much amidst the temptations and my own human weaknesses to keep the love of God in my heart during that Sunday Mass.  It was, truly, very difficult for me—even as I recognized it to be such a petty matter…

Yet, here I was in The Presence of The Almighty God, King of All Things Seen and Unseen, and I was struggling with my own selfishness every moment—in the form of vanity and pride—preoccupied with the clothing tags of my “seemingly” reversed dress…

So, I learned keenly the lesson of persistent humble prayer and, simply, trying my best to live each present moment in the love of God and neighbor.  Which are some of the themes of the heavenly messages given at Holy Love Ministry.

Thirdly, I realized that we must become like the wildflowers of the field who live for solely for God’s Glory.  The wildflowers who are clothe in His splendid beauty of Truth and Love.  The wildflowers who are totally reliant on Him for their daily nourishment and life song.

These days, so many of us are worrying about the future and what may lie ahead.

The answer is not to worry, but trust.

Trust always in Him Who provides for all things from His Loving Paternal Heart.

Our Lady at Medjugorje said on August 1984:

“The only attitude of the Christian toward the future is hope of salvation.  Those who think only of wars, evils, punishment do not do well.  If you think of evil, punishment, wars, you are on the road to meeting them.  Your responsibility is to accept Divine peace, live it, and spread it.”

And again, Our Lady says at Medjugorje on August 1984:

“Christians make a mistake in considering the future because they think of wars and of evil.  For a Christian, there is only one attitude toward the future. It is hope of salvation.  Your responsibility is to accept Divine peace, to live it, and to spread it, not through words, but through your life.”

Oh, my sweet brothers and sisters, most recently on September 26, 2011 at Holy Love Ministry, Our Lord gave this message:

Jesus is here with His Heart exposed.  He says:

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“My brothers and sisters, tonight I invite you once again to trust in My Mercy and Love; for these two can be likened to the yarn that is weaving together the fabric of My Father’s Divine Will for the future of the world.”

“Tonight I am blessing you with My Blessing of Divine Love.”

*                 *                 *

Inspired by the above message, I felt encouraged to read further messages at Holy Love Ministry that featured God’s Divine Will and, oddly enough, the messages that contain the word, “fabric.”

And as I feel all these messages are relevant and important, I have included them at the end of this love-letter for your discernment at this particular time.

Oh, my sweet brothers and sisters, I am also reminded of how when I was a child that I did some volunteer work with the AIDS Memorial Quilt.

For those who are not familiar, in 1987, the AIDS Memorial Quilt was conceived to remember the lives of those lost to the AIDS pandemic.  Each block (section) of the Quilt is 12 square feet in size and comprised of eight individual three foot by six foot panels sewn together. In total then, there are more than 40,000 colorful panels that each memorializes the life of a person lost to AIDS.

Well, I am reminded of my volunteer experience, because as the heavenly messages show at Holy Love Ministry, The Divine Will of The Father and our collective future is liken to a huge patchwork quilt.

Each of us has our own life stories in the master story of HIS-STORY.  The threads that comprise our own stories are the virtues and precious present moments that we have given over to The Lord in love of God and neighbor.  And together, we are woven and intertwined as One Family in God, from the beginning to the end of time.

The Divine Will of The Heavenly Father exists throughout time.  There is never a precious moment in which Our Father is not present to us in His Love.

The key and answer to all the present-day worry about the future lies in each present moment lived in unconditional love.  Lasting peace—the type of peace that exists in our souls and sustains us through all of life’s troubles—is only achievable through sincere and hopeful prayer to God.

On June 25, 2000, Our Lady at Medjugorje said:

“Dear children! Today I call you to prayer. The one who prays is not afraid of the future… “

And again, on January 25, 2001, Our Lady at Medjugorje said:

“Dear children! Today I call you to renew prayer and fasting with even greater enthusiasm until prayer becomes a joy for you. Little children, the one who prays is not afraid of the future and the one who fasts is not afraid of evil. Once again, I repeat to you: only through prayer and fasting also wars can be stopped — wars of your unbelief and fear for the future. I am with you and am teaching you little children: your peace and hope are in God. That is why draw closer to God and put Him in the first place in your life. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Then, recently, on August 2, 2011, Our Lady at Medjugorje said this:

“Dear children; Today I call you to be born anew in prayer and through the Holy Spirit, to become a new people with my Son; a people who knows that if they have lost God, they have lost themselves; a people who knows that, with God, despite all sufferings and trials, they are secure and saved. I call you to gather into God’s family and to be strengthened with the Father’s strength. As individuals, my children, you cannot stop the evil that wants to begin to rule in this world and to destroy it. But, according to God’s will, all together, with my Son, you can change everything and heal the world. I call you to pray with all your heart for your shepherds, because my Son chose them. Thank you.”

*                 *                 *

Oh, my dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ!  The only way to fight the impending onslaught of evil is with Love—love in, from and through God!

With so many who are fearful of the future, so many souls are lacking the spiritual compass that they need to navigate this particular time.  So many souls are lacking true spiritual peace in their souls, so much so, that the gift of peace that should be theirs moment-to-moment from God, is instead replaced with and fraught with constant worry and a sense of foreboding evil in their souls.

Truly, it is time now.  We must recognize that today, right now, our spiritual compass for this particular time is being given to us all at Holy Love Ministry.

The August 2nd message at Medjugorje is so powerful for us:

We, as the family of God, have to rediscover the joy of prayer—prayer from the heart.

We need to rediscover how to pray unceasingly from the heart moment-to-moment, in imitation of Our Blessed Mother.  We need to learn how to turn to God for all of our needs, not just some of our needs.  We need to learn true trust in and total dependence and abandonment and surrender in God.

If our hearts are truly in the love of God and abide constantly in His Love, then each moment-by-moment becomes a true joy and we are at peace because the most important thing—our salvation—is secure in Him.

Those who worry and are constantly living in the future are forgetting the God that loves them in the here and now.  The God Who Is constantly besides them and Is whispering to them in every present moment, I love you; do you love Me?

Show Me.

The crux of the Divine Mercy Message is the words, Jesus, I love You, Jesus, I trust in You!

We should be replacing every moment of worry with the prayer from our lips: I love You, Jesus!  I trust in You!

If we only truly realized that each present moment of our lives is a true gift from God…  If we only truly realized that each moment given back to Our Lord is all that really matters…  If we only truly realized that the gift of our moment of time is how we demonstrate our free will love for God…  How much this world would change for the better as we demonstrate true reciprocity in unconditional love.

We would be strengthened—as one united family—in the love of God and His Holy and Divine Will.  The threads of our little hearts would intertwine with the Greater Heart of Our Lord creating a great tapestry of Love and Hope for the future.

In my heart, I wish that I could change this world and the direction it is headed.  That is why I persist in my love-letter writing because I am compelled by Love to do so.

But, I cannot stop the evil that wants to begin to rule in the world.  I am just one individual—one soul—who loves Our Lord and Our Lady.

And that is the same for each of us.

There are six visionaries at Medjugorje and I know that they pray very much and live very holy lives.  But even them, they are just six individuals—just six chosen souls—who love Our Lord and Our Lady very much.  Even they, individually, cannot stop the evil that wants to begin to rule in this world.

The six visionaries cannot “carry” the Medjugorje message by themselves to the entire world.

And so it goes for each of us, whether we are faithful followers of Our Lady and Our Lord or chosen prophets, etc., none of us individually can stop the evil that wants to begin to rule in this world.

But then, as individuals, we were never asked to carry the entire world in love to God the Father—

It Is Jesus Who Saves; not us, not me.

And so, oftentimes, I forget that it Is Jesus Who Saves, not me.  Because I love Him so much in my heart, I want so much to give Him the world in return for His Love for me and humanity.

Oh, my brothers and sisters in Christ, I love you all so much.  You are my beloved family, so close to God.  Oh, how I wish that I could convince you of The Truth of the Holy Love Messages.

Oh, how I wish that we could be One United Family of God, in Holy and Divine Love, Together in union with Jesus, healing this wounded world!

But, I am just one soul and no matter how certain I may be in my discernment of this, each of us has free will, and so, each of you and collectively so also, need to discern for yourselves The Truth of The Way of Salvation that has been given to us by Jesus at Holy Love.

So, I hope and I pray and I trust.  And I love.  I especially live in love for you all.

I will continue to write to you all as My Love directs me so.  God bless you always, my beloved family in Christ.  I love you very much.

PEACE be with you, my most cherished friends.

In His Love,

          a soul

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate. I have come to help you understand that the virtues are the threads which weave together the fabric of God’s Will in the soul. Moreover, your self will is the needle which pulls the thread of this fabric in place. Therefore, understand that a virtuous heart is enclothed in a rich fabric of God’s Divine Will.”

August 17, 2000

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate. I have come to help you realize that the very fabric of the remnant faithful is composed of Holy and Divine Love. It is through this fiber of love that the remnant will persevere and cling to truth. Because this spirituality speaks to every soul, more and more will follow into the remnant Church. I ask that you make this known.”

May 28, 2001

Jesus and Blessed Mother are here with Their Hearts exposed.

Blessed Mother says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

Jesus: “My brothers and sisters, when I was on earth and now in Heaven, My Heart was intertwined with the Heart of My Mother, and My life was intertwined with Her life as well. Spiritually we were one. So too, I desire that your hearts, My brothers and sisters, be interwoven with the United Hearts. Thus you will create a fine fabric of love to present to God.”

“Tonight We are blessing you with Our Blessing of the United Hearts.”

April 3, 2002

St. Thomas Aquinas comes. He says:

“Praise be to Jesus. I have come to help you understand that there is a common thread that runs through the tapestry of each one’s life. It is trust in God’s Will. Each soul is offered opportunities in his life to practice trust. Trust, remember, is the proving ground of love–the substance of love. The Lord stands back and patiently watches how each one deals with these opportunities to trust. The more the soul trusts in Divine Providence, the deeper he is drawn into the Chambers of the United Hearts.”

“Satan, of course, tries to weaken trust and presents doubts and fears to the heart. These anxieties pull the soul away from the path of holiness, and destroy the peace of each one who gives in to such worries.”

“Learn to recognize the enemy, then, when he attacks in such a way. All that opposes trust is from the adversary. Tighten the fabric of the tapestry God creates in your soul through trust. Do not allow the enemy to unravel this precious handiwork.”

January 12, 2004

St. Thomas Aquinas says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come to give you deeper understanding of Divine Love. The Heart of Jesus is Love and Mercy. These two cannot exist in any heart apart from one another. As every virtue is perfect in the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Divine Love and Divine Mercy are perfect in His Divine Heart. But there are other virtues and attributes which are also perfect in His Heart, and they are woven into Love and Mercy, making up the very fiber of Love and Mercy. Two of these are Justice and Truth. These depend on each other and on Love and Mercy for their very existence.”

“Love lays the foundation for Mercy. Mercy is interwoven with Justice and Truth. These are all threads that comprise the Sacred Heart. The more the soul surrenders to Divine Love, the more closely he imitates these attributes, and the more tightly woven is the fabric of his own heart.”

“Every attribute of the Sacred Heart interacts with all the other Holy and Divine attributes. This is the goal of personal holiness, for when one attribute or virtue is weak, the ‘thread’ is pulled loose and the soul runs the risk of unraveling his entire tapestry of holiness.”

July 3, 2007

St. Thomas Aquinas says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come to further enlighten you on the virtues. The virtue of Prudence goes hand in hand with the gift of Wisdom. These two must be woven into the fabric of every virtue in order for them to be used according to God’s Will. Attendant to Prudence and Wisdom is Temperance.”

“There is so much presumption in regards to inspiration and spiritual gifts–presumption as to the source of ideas and ‘inspiration.’ Many, through spiritual pride, presume their own thoughts, as well as Satan’s influence, is all from the Holy Spirit; then they act accordingly. Wisdom and Prudence must act together in discernment in order to disarm spiritual pride, which the enemy makes full use of.”

“Temperance lets the soul know when to call on certain gifts and virtues, and to what extent the inspiration is from Heaven. Wisdom allows the soul to see the exact nugget of truth in every inspiration. Prudence speaks to the heart, telling it how and when to act on inspiration.”

“When Wisdom, Prudence and Temperance are absent, the other virtues–no matter their depth–are easy prey for Satan’s influence. It is easy for him to present false discernment and to misdirect even the best intentions.”

“FOOTPRINTS”

By anonymous

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed He was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scenes from His life. For each scene He noticed two sets of footprints in the sand. One belonging to Him and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of His life flashed before Him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of His life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times of His life.

This really bothered Him and He questioned the LORD about it. LORD you said that once I decided to follow you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed you most you would leave me.

The LORD replied, my precious, precious child, I Love you and I would never leave you! During your times of trial and suffering when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.

MY NAME IS LOVE

In the little book, “The Secret of the Rosary,” St. Louis de Montfort writes of the Mystical Rose Tree of our souls.  Here is the piece in its entirety:

A Mystical Rose Tree

Good and devout souls, who walk in the light of the Holy Spirit, I do not think you will mind my giving you this little mystical rose tree which comes straight from heaven and which is to be planted in the garden of your soul. It cannot possibly harm the sweet-smelling flowers of your contemplations; for it is a heavenly tree and its scent is very pleasant. It will not in the least interfere with your carefully planned flower-beds; for, being itself all pure and well-ordered, it inclines all to order and purity. If it is carefully watered and properly attended to every day, it will grow to such a marvelous height, and its branches will have such a wide span that, far from hindering your other devotions, it will maintain and perfect them.

Of course, you understand what I mean, since you are spiritually minded; this mystical rose tree is Jesus and Mary in life, death and eternity. Its green leaves are the Joyful Mysteries, the thorns the Sorrowful ones, and the flowers the Glorious Mysteries of Jesus and Mary. The buds are the childhood of Jesus and Mary, and the open blooms show us both of them in their sufferings, and the full-blown roses symbolize Jesus and Mary in their triumph and glory.

A rose delights us because of its beauty: so here we have Jesus and Mary in the Joyful Mysteries. Its thorns are sharp, and they prick, which makes us think of them in the Sorrowful Mysteries, and last of all, its perfume is so sweet that everyone loves it, and this fragrance symbolizes their Glorious Mysteries.

So please do not scorn this beautiful and heavenly tree, but plant it with your own hands in the garden of your soul, by making the resolution to say your Rosary every day. By saying it daily and by doing good works you will be tending your tree, watering it, hoeing the earth around it. Eventually you will see that this little seed which I have given you, and which seems so small now, will grow into a tree so great that the birds of heaven, that is, predestinate and contemplative souls, will dwell in it and make their nests there. Its shade will shelter them from the scorching heat of the sun and its height will keep them safe from the wild beasts on the ground. And best of all, they will feed upon the tree’s fruit, which is none other than our adorable Jesus, to whom be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

God Alone

*                 *                 *

It is beautiful to know that when one prays to Our Blessed Mother, that we are honoring in Her, The Incarnation of Jesus, Her Divine Son, in Her Immaculate Womb.  How Blessed Is The Fruit of Her Womb, Jesus!

Jesus, in Whom All Goodness flows and All Salvation becomes possible through The Cross.

The Cross, which is the new Tree of Life, and Jesus Is Its Fruit.

The Fruit that opens Its Core, The Heart.  Its Most Sacred Heart.

And from This Fruit, from Its Most Sacred Heart, comes forth The Book of Life.

The Book of Life, in which is inscribed the names of the holy children of God.

*                 *                 *

April 4, 1982 – April 10, 1982

Jelena of Medjugorje asked Our Lady about the meaning of her vision. She saw Jesus being held by the hand by Mary. There were many words written on the arm and palm of Jesus’ hand. Jelena could read the inscription, “Glory,” on the palm of Jesus’ hand.

“These are the names of all those who have been inscribed in the heart of Jesus.”

*                 *                 *

As revealed earlier by St. Louis de Montfort, the fertile ground of our souls is seeded by our faith.  And from our faith, in our hearts springs forth the mystical rose trees that blossom and bloom exquisitely beautiful roses in response to our fidelity to prayer.

In a similar manner, the hearts of our souls are like little books—little books which render truthful testimony of our lives lived in love of God and neighbor as self.  Our hearts are our living testimony to The Truth and our living in The Truth, The Great Commandments of Love.

And as we write our living testimony to The Truth in our hearts, our names become forever inscribed in The Book of Life, in The Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord…

Now, in my studies of the Christian faith, I have always been fascinated with the subject of names.

Since the beginning of time, mankind has been given the divinely-derived gift of being able to bestow names on his fellow creatures and things of Creation and one another.

It is a holy and very special gift that God grants to us as our portion of our inheritance to His beloved family and as a share as co-creators with Him on earth.

And throughout salvation history, God has had a tradition of changing names of individuals significant to mankind’s redemption story made possible by Jesus.

Truly, the most beautiful name in all of history is the Holy Name of Jesus Christ which means “God Saves The Anointed One.”

And when we are baptized, each of us is adopted with a new family surname—The Holy Name of The Father and of The Son and of The Holy Spirit.

So, the symbolism behind and meanings of any given name for an individual has always intrigued me in general.

And, in particular, since I first returned to the universal church, I have always wondered what the meaning is of the Holy Name of Mary.  For Mary is Our Lady and Our Heavenly Queen and as the Blessed Mother has been so instrumental in me renewing my Catholic faith.

Yet, one of the most important names of all of human history—Our Blessed Mother Mary—has had the meaning of Her Holy Name lost to the annals of time on earth.

The traditional meaning of Mary is lost to mankind.

And so, upon learning this sad historical fact, I told myself, that on the day, that I would see Our Blessed Mother face-to-face in heaven, I would ask her the meaning of Her Holy Name, so that I would never forget it and would honor it always in my heart.

Then, recently, I discovered this older message given at Medjugorje by Our Lady Queen of Peace to Mirjana on March 2, 2007:

Mirjana said that Our Lady was resolute. She said:

“Today I will speak to you about what you have forgotten:

“Dear children, My name is Love. That I am among you for so much of your time is love, because the Great Love sends me. I am asking the same of you. I am asking for love in your families. I am asking that you recognize love in your brother. Only in this way, through love, will you see the face of the Greatest Love. May fasting and prayer be your guiding star. Open your hearts to love, namely, salvation. Thank you.”

And when I read this message through Medjugorje, it made me overjoyed to finally know the meaning of the Holy Name of Our Beautiful Queen and My Mother.  It was quite a joy.

Also, after reading this heavenly message in which we are told that Mary means “Love,” I immediately connected this fact to the Immaculate Heart of Our Blessed Mother which is synonymous with the name of “Holy Love.”

So, this made me overjoyed, too, to recognize and know for certain now that Our Blessed Mother, Mary, IS Holy Love.  That Her Holy Name had been reserved by God throughout all eternity to be known as “Love” and, in particular, in this present day, as “Holy Love” as revealed through Holy Love Ministry.

Mary is Most Holy.  Mary is Love.  Mary IS Holy Love.

This realization was and continues to be so profound to me.

“Open your hearts to love, namely, salvation.”

Our Lady of Medjugorje, March 2, 2007

Open our hearts to The Immaculate Heart of Mary, The First Sacred Chamber of the spiritual journey of The United Hearts of Jesus & Mary, The Way of Salvation to The Divine Heart of The Heavenly Father as provided for at Holy Love Ministry.

Blessed Mother says:

“All Praise be to Jesus.”

“Today I come once again to address all people and all nations.”

“Dear children, persevere in your efforts to propagate these Messages of Holy and Divine Love. These Messages, which open a new, yet ancient spirituality to you, are salvific. The one who fears and opposes them the most is Satan. He is using anyone to discourage the power of the Messages. He is using misinformation to confuse those committed to this spiritual journey. There is not a word in the Messages which is untrue or misleading. However, the enemies of this Mission cannot claim this.”

Once again, dear children, I am asking you to choose the side of truth. Let the Messages be your refuge against error and falsehood. During these final days before My Son’s return, many who relish prestige are aligned with the enemy of lies. Do not be misled by who is speaking or impressed by nomenclature so much as you are impressed with the truth.

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“Today you were wondering about the weather. When you arose you saw the gloom and the portend of rain. You wondered when the rain would start and what adverse effect it would have on you; but it is not so important to know the exact minute of the first raindrop – where you will be or what you shall do. In your heart you are ready, and you know things will come together for you as you need them.

It is much the same way with these times. All the signs are around you – the signs of these last days and of the reign of the antichrist – the signs of My return. People do not know the exact moment of specific happenings; but just as a weather forecaster predicts rain is in the future, this Mission is here now to predict the last days are unfolding. I prepare you with the umbrella of truth. I warn you to hold tight and do not allow Satan’s lies to wash away your faith.”

Holy Love is the high ground you must seek. There I will protect you. The flood waters of confusion will not reach you. In your hearts, you know all is at hand. In your hearts, know that My Provision in every present moment is your consolation.”

You cannot pretend to know the difficulties which lie ahead just as you cannot pretend to know the second the first raindrop will fall. If your heart is prepared in Holy Love, then you must not be anxious concerning that which you do not know and cannot predict.

Jesus is here with His Heart exposed. He says:

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“My brothers and sisters, tonight you experienced inclement weather and storm warnings which, if you heard them, you paid heed to. Yet I come to you over and over and send My Mother and many saints here to warn you of the dangers of these times – of Satan’s tactics, his lies and the danger of losing your own salvation. Oh, that so many would take it seriously as they do a passing storm.”

I pray for this.

“Tonight I’m extending to you the Blessing of My Divine Love.”

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“I come to remind you that Heaven has not established contact here in order to conceal truth to save egos. On the contrary, here the truth is revealed to save souls. So it is, I reiterate that your beliefs and discernment must be based upon the truth of peoples’ actions, not upon superficial titles and positions of esteem. You must live in the truth for truth to rule your heart and for truth to rule in the world.

“In this light, I warn you to beware of secularization within church circles which, like many things, is being carried to the extreme. Now the Remnant must cling fast to tradition, and avoid trying to pander to every other school of belief.”

“When I return, all will be one in the light of truth.”

THE BOOK OF LIFE

April 4, 1982 – April 10, 1982

Jelena of Medjugorje asked Our Lady about the meaning of her vision. She saw Jesus being held by the hand by Mary. There were many words written on the arm and palm of Jesus’ hand. Jelena could read the inscription, “Glory,” on the palm of Jesus’ hand.

“These are the names of all those who have been inscribed in the heart of Jesus.”

*                 *                 *

It was January 2008.

I was in deep prayer before Our Lady and Our Lord.

Thus, in deep prayer, The Holy Spirit inspired me to pray for every man’s name to be written in gold in The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

The Holy Spirit inspired me to understand that The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus IS The Book of Life.

For, just as The Cross is the new Tree of Life, Jesus IS the fruit of the blessed womb of the Immaculate Virgin Mary.  Jesus IS thus the new fruit of the new Tree of Life, The Cross.

And as books come from trees, The Book of Life IS The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus that comes to fruition on the new Tree of Life, The Cross.

And from the passage of time, in my own faith journey, I also have come to realize that just as every book needs to be opened in order to understand the truth of its writings, so, too, must we open our own hearts, which give testimony of our life and love in God, to Jesus for His Truth to be written in them, as it is written in His Most Sacred Heart.

Book of Revelation, Chapter 3:20:

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, [then] I will enter his house and dine with him, and he with me.  I will give the victor the right to sit with me on my throne, as I myself first won the victory and sit with my Father on his throne.”

On November 28, 1983, the Holy Spirit inspired Jelena of Medjugorje to write down a Consecration Prayer to The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.  In this prayer, were these words:

“Jesus, enter into each heart.

Knock on the door of our hearts.

Be patient and unwearied with us.

We are still closed, since we still have not

yet understood Your love for us.

Knock persistently and grant, O good Jesus,

that we open our hearts to You,

at least when we will have remembered the passion

You suffered for us. Amen.”

In the above consecration prayer, it has been revealed to me that our hearts are the “books” of our own lives—our living testimony of our lives for or against God—that Jesus wants us to open totally and completely to His Love.  So, that our hearts become His Own and our names can be written in His Book of Life, His Most Sacred Heart.  The Book of Life that came to be through His Passion on the new Tree of Life, The Cross.

It has been my sincerest hope that one day, when I am before My Love, that I will have His Most Holy Name written in my own heart and He will have my name in His.  So, that together, our hearts will become One.

One may ask how is it possible for one to open our hearts to Jesus, so that He may dwell in our hearts and we may dwell in His?

The answer is The Way of Salvation as provided for us in the spiritual journey through The Most Sacred Chambers of The United Hearts of Jesus and Mary as given through Holy Love Ministry (holylove.org).

In the spiritual journey, The First Most Sacred Chamber of Our Lord’s Heart IS The Immaculate Heart of Mary.

On June 22, 1985, Our Lady of Medjugorje inspired Jelena to write down a prayer to God.  In this prayer, were these words:

“We open our hearts to you

so that Your holy love will remain in us.

We open our souls to you,

so that they may be touched by Your holy mercy

which will help us to see clearly all our sins,

and will make us realize

that which makes us impure is sin…”

Also, on January 25, 1995, Our Lady at Medjugorje gave this message to the world:

“Dear children, I invite you to open the door of your heart to Jesus as the flower opens itself to the sun. Jesus desires to fill your hearts with peace and joy. You cannot, little children, realize peace if you are not at peace with Jesus. Therefore, I invite you to Confession so Jesus may be your truth and peace. So, little children, pray to have strength to realize what I am telling you. I am with you and I love you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Then, again, on May 25, 2011, Our Lady at Medjugorje gave this message to the world:

“Dear children! My prayer today is for all of you who seek the grace of conversion. You knock on the door of my heart, but without hope and prayer, in sin, and without the Sacrament of Reconciliation with God. Leave sin and decide, little children, for holiness. Only in this way can I help you, hear your prayers and seek intercession before the Most High. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

As revealed at Holy Love Ministry, the first step into the spiritual journey of The United Hearts of Jesus and Mary, is entry into the antechamber, the first chamber of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.  This first chamber is The Immaculate Heart of Mary, otherwise known as “Holy Love,” as revealed also at Medjugorje in Jelena’s prayer to God.

The Holy Flame of The Immaculate Heart of Mary is a purging flame that rids us of our most serious glaring faults and grievous sins.  This Holy Flame thus purifies us to make us fit for the next stage, entry into the second chamber of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.  This second chamber is known as Divine Love.

Taking the first step into The Immaculate Heart of Mary requires much humility and self-surrender, because it requires genuine on-going conversion of the heart.  It is not simply making a good confession in the Sacraments.  No, rather it requires an on-going commitment to convert and change every present moment of our life, as we seek to become a living Holy Tabernacle of Prayer burning in love always with Our God.

*                 *                 *

October 16, 1999

Holy Love Ministry

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.

My sister, there are many chambers in My Heart of Hearts, which is Divine Love. The door to each chamber is unlocked through self-will, self-surrender. Each doorway leads you deeper into Divine Love – deeper into My Heart… until the soul reaches the deepest, most intimate chamber of Divine Union, and compliance with the Divine Will of God. In this most intimate chamber the soul knows Me as never before. He has no wants save to love Me more. His happiness is My happiness. He is willing to sacrifice anything to console Me. Few reach this chamber.”

“The first door the soul must open is perhaps the most difficult. Through the Flame of My Mother’s Heart the soul recognizes its faults and failings. By a movement of free will, he decides to overcome his weaknesses – to let them be burned away through the flame of Holy Love. Yes, the first doorway to Divine Love is Holy Love. It is the purgative stage. The soul may open this door, quite committed to the path he sees before him, but because he gives in to Satan’s temptations, finds himself outside the first door again. Over and over he may have to re-commit to Holy Love.”

“Finally, he will be less tempted to old weaknesses. He will recognize them and avert them. Now he can approach the first door to Divine Love. Once through this doorway, a great peace comes upon the soul. He is able to go deeper into prayer. He is more aware of the grace of the present moment. Indeed, he is able to recline in My Heart and find a respite herein. He does not take joy in so-called worldly pleasures anymore. His joy is in Me. The soul drifts along in this sea of calm, recognizing more frequently the difference between his wants and his needs. In this chamber the soul has few wants.”

“Sister, meditate on the consecration until it becomes a part of you. Study all I have said thus far concerning the consecration to Divine Love.”

“I am blessing you.”

CONSECRATION TO THE

IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY

(As given to Jelena of Medjugorje on November 28, 1983)

O Immaculate Heart of Mary, overflowing

with goodness, Show us Your love for us.

May the flame of Your heart, O Mary,

Descend upon all mankind.

We love You so.

Impress true love in our hearts

that we may have a continuous desire for You.

O Mary, meek and humble of heart,

Remember us when we are in sin.

You know that all men sin.

Grant to us by means of Your Immaculate Heart,

to be healed from every spiritual illness.

In doing so, we then will be able to gaze

upon the goodness of Your Maternal Heart,

And thus be converted through

the flame of Your Heart. Amen.

*                 *                 *

Our Lady has said many times at Medjugorje for each of us to pray, pray, pray.

Few, however, realize that The Blessed Mother is calling us to pray in every present moment of our lives.  Because for many people, prayer is not a joy, but they do so out of duty or obligation.  They never enter into the beauty of praying to Our Lord—Who Is The First Love of our hearts.

Our Lady of Medjugorje

Message to the World
July 25, 1997

“Dear children! Today I invite you to respond to my call to prayer. I desire, dear children, that during this time you find a corner for personal prayer. I desire to lead you towards prayer with the heart. Only in this way will you comprehend that your life is empty without prayer. You will discover the meaning of your life when you discover God in prayer. That is why, little children, open the door of your heart and you will comprehend that prayer is joy without which you cannot live. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

These series of messages were given to Jelena of Medjugorje to her prayer group on the value of unceasing prayer:

January 2, 1984

Jelena’s prayer group thought they could stop saying the prayer to the Holy Spirit, thinking Our Lady only wanted it said until Christmas.

“Why have you stopped saying the prayer to the Holy Spirit? I have asked you to pray always and at all times so that the Holy Spirit may descend over all of you. Begin again to pray for that.”

April 19, 1984

Jelena asked Our Lady this question for Father Vlasic: “How could Jesus pray all night? With what method?” Our Lady said:

“He had a great longing for God and for the salvation of souls.”

May, 1984

Jelena tells Our Lady that if she tells the people to pray four hours a day they will back out.

“Don’t you understand, that it is only one-sixth of the day?”

July, 1985

To Jelena’s group:

“I cannot speak to you. Your hearts are closed.

“You have not done what I told you; I cannot speak to you. I cannot give you graces as long as you remain closed.”

October, 1985

On three successive evenings, Jelena was given these words:

“If you wanted to accept my love, you would never sin.”

On the fourth evening in response to Jelena’s question about Her repeating the same message, Our Lady says:

“But I don’t have anything else to say to you.”

Crying, Our Lady adds:

“There are many who finish their prayers, even without entering into them.”

*                 *                 *

The path to holiness is not a passive journey.  To pursue holiness requires us to actively say ‘yes’ to God in each and every present moment of our lives.

To choose not to sin and instead to seek holiness—virtue, love—in every present moment of our life.

It is much better to say one Hail Mary prayer with much love and devotion in one’s heart, with the full knowledge that we are addressing The Queen of Heaven and Earth, who listens besides us every time we pray to Her, then to pray an entire rosary out of rote memorization and routine.

My brothers and sisters in Christ, I am a poor choice for one on how to teach someone else to pray, because I had to learn on my own how to pray to God.  But, The Holy Spirit taught and guided me, and now, it is because of the love I have in my heart for all, that I am trying to show you how to pray to God.  How to pray without ceasing.

God gave us an imagination so that we could use our minds in our faith journey:

“Blessed are those who have not seen, yet have believed.”

(Gospel of John, Chapter 20:29)

One must imagine prayer first as taking baby steps.  Baby steps that lead to walking.  Then from walking to running.  All the way home.

If one sets aside time for prayer, this is a good thing.  But, those are only the initial baby steps.  Because true prayer from the heart is not dictated by an appointment of time with Our Lord.

If one is truly in love with someone, one thinks of that person constantly—all the time—and tries to seek to please that person in all things.

True heart-to-heart prayer is conversational with Our Lord.  Sometimes, one gets so busy counting the beads on the rosary, that we forget to “look up” and smile at Our Lord and Our Lady Who are standing right there, listening to us “converse” with them.

Sometimes I will pray before a Crucifix, imaging Our Lady standing besides me, and us praying together to Her Son, Jesus Crucified, on The Cross.

Other times, because I know that salvation of souls is the most important thing to Our Lord, I will simply pray over and over for souls to be saved.  Sometimes I will pray like this for hours.  I will use different ardent prayers, to vary my language a bit, but I will pray for this intention over and over again, because I do not want a present moment of my life to slip away with praying for all souls on earth to be saved—

Because my single prayer might make the difference for some soul between life and death in this world.

I pray mentally when sitting, standing, walking, etc.  Most people will not realize that I am praying throughout my day, as I pray silently to myself as much as I can.  Unnoticed by others, except to God in my heart.

And I love to sing.  For hours and hours, I can sing to Our Lord.  I will imagine My Jesus sitting on His Throne, right in front of me, listening to me pour out my heart in song to Him.  Oh, how I love to make My Love smile in songs of praise.

I cannot speak more plainly on how to pray without ceasing…  It is an experience that someone must choose to do—each moment of the day—to live in the Light and Love of God—seeking holiness by living the virtues every moment of our life.

Prayer without ceasing is a day-by-day, moment-by-moment choice, to live each present moment in love of God.  Anything and everything that pulls someone away from living the present moment as a gift given to God should be discarded.  Worries and anxieties associated with the past and future are unproductive because they prevent us from living in The Eternal Now, in which God dwells.

Eternal life begins now—abiding in love and peace now—our souls living to please God alone.

And desiring to pray without ceasing only happens once we commit ourselves to the path of holiness, by seeking forgiveness of sins from God—again and again—as the purging Holy Flame of The Immaculate Heart of Mary burns away all our iniquities from our souls.

The reason why Our Lady cries in telling us that our hearts are still closed is because once we seek the first baby step of forgiveness for our sins in Confession, we fail to take the next baby step, by seeking holiness in each present moment of our life.  We fail to truly convert to God and seek His Divine Will in all matters.

Conversion is a continual, on-going process that must take place each present moment of our life.  One cannot say that they are converted because they think of God during a set time in the morning and a set time at night.

What happened to the majority of the time in between?  Whose “will” was followed?  God or man?

It is the Divine Will of God that we pray without ceasing to Him and be perfect as Our Heavenly Father Is Perfect.

(1 Thessalonians 5:17; Gospel of Matthew 5:48)

It is simply very hard for someone to pass into heaven directly, living totally in The Divine Will of God, if they spent the majority of their time on earth not dwelling in God’s Presence.

I am not a saint.  I am a poor sinner.  And I can safely say that I do not pray without ceasing.  It is hard to do this all the time.  Especially in this hell-bent world.  But, it is what we are called to do.  This is the Call to Holiness.

We are called to sacrifice our own will for the sake of others and God.  To love selflessly and unconditionally.  To love as Christ loves each of us.

Our Lady of Medjugorje

Message to the World
October 25, 2011

“Dear children! I am looking at you and in your hearts I do not see joy. Today I desire to give you the joy of the Risen One, that He may lead you and embrace you with His love and tenderness. I love you and I am praying for your conversion without ceasing before my Son Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

And so, purified by The Holy Flame of The Immaculate Heart of Mary, in the first Sacred Chamber from all serious sin, a soul then moves into the second Sacred Chamber of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, thus answering The Universal Call to Holiness.

This Universal Call to Holiness requires a greater surrender of one’s will to God.  It is in this second Sacred Chamber that a soul begins to understand that his own will is directed by what he holds in his heart—love of God and neighbor, or love of self.  The value of each present moment becomes alive to the soul as one realizes the more present moments given over to God, the more God freely pours His Love and Peace into his heart.

Thus, the present moment gains true lasting value to a soul as it then becomes a great opportunity to show love to God by practicing the virtues on others.  Each present moment becomes a precious gift that a soul wants to give again and again for love of God.

It is then in the third Sacred Chamber of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus that the practice of virtue becomes a defining aspect for the soul.  It is in the third Sacred Chamber that a soul, now rooted in Holy and Divine Love, puts all his effort into being perfected in the virtues.  The soul practices the virtues diligently, praying for an increase in virtues in his soul.  And when God sees a worthy effort, God infuses the soul with these virtues.

Thus, the third Sacred Chamber is known as the journey into perfection—perfection in all virtues, perfection in love.

This then leads to the fourth Sacred Chamber of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, which is the minimum level of happiness for all souls in heaven.  The fourth Sacred Chamber which can also be achieved here on earth, but for which so few souls strive for in this lifetime—it is Sanctification in Our Lord.

*                 *                 *

The Gospel of John, Chapter 14

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me.

“In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be. Where [I] am going you know the way.”

Thomas said to him, “Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?”

Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, then you will also know my Father. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”

Philip said to him, “Master, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us.”

Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on my own. The Father who dwells in me is doing his works. Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else, believe because of the works themselves. Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater ones than these, because I am going to the Father. And whatever you ask in my name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it.

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate to be with you always, the Spirit of Truth, which the world cannot accept, because it neither sees nor knows it. But you know it, because it remains with you, and will be in you.

“I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me, because I live and you will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father and you are in me and I in you.

“Whoever has my commandments and observes them is the one who loves me. And whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and reveal myself to him.”

Judas, not the Iscariot, said to him, “Master, [then] what happened that you will reveal yourself to us and not to the world?”

Jesus answered and said to him, “Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him. Whoever does not love me does not keep my words; yet the word you hear is not mine but that of the Father who sent me.

“I have told you this while I am with you. The Advocate, The Holy Spirit that the Father will send in my name—he will teach you everything and remind you of all that [I] told you.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.

“You heard me tell you, ‘I am going away and I will come back to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father; for the Father is greater than I.

“And now I have told you this before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe. I will no longer speak much with you, for the ruler of the world is coming. He has no power over me, but the world must know that I love the Father and that I do just as the Father has commanded me. Get up, let us go.”

*                 *                 *

I began this love-letter by sharing how The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus IS The Book of Life.

And how, in similar manner, our own hearts are like little books—books of living testimonies of how we each lived our lives for or against God—little books that need to be opened so that The Truth can be written in them, as our names are written in The Book of Life—The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Also, in a similar manner, our hearts can be likened to be a dwelling place, a house, and a chamber.

In the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 6, Verse 6, from the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus tells us:

New American Bible translation:

“But when you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.”

Douay-Rheims Bible translation:

“But thou when thou shalt pray, enter into thy chamber, and having shut the door, pray to thy Father in secret: and thy Father who seeth in secret will repay thee.”

It is interesting to note that “chamber” can be defined in many ways, such as a dwelling room of a house, or a compartment of the human heart.

In the Gospel of John, Chapter 14, one reads that The Way of Salvation that Jesus Is calling us to follow, its foundation is built upon The Two Great Commandments: love of God and love of neighbor, in which there is no place for love of self.

Living The Two Great Commandments in every present moment, is how we come to know The Heavenly Father, and is the only way to To Be Perfect as Our Heavenly Father Is Perfect.

The most surest and most swiftest way to The Divine Heart of The Heavenly Father IS the spiritual journey provided to us by Heaven through The United Hearts of Jesus and Mary as revealed through Holy Love Ministry.

We must continually open the chambers of our own hearts to Our Lord so that we can meet Jesus and His Heavenly Father, who live within the most deepest, most secret inner chamber of our hearts.

The spiritual journey is one of holiness and perfection in love and goodness.

As each of us works out our own salvation with fear and trembling before The Lord, seeking the inner chamber of our hearts in which we will be united with The Divine Heart of Our Heavenly Father, should be our ultimate spiritual goal.

I know that for myself that I have not reached this spiritual goal.  But, it is The Goal that I strive for and long for each day.

I strive for and long for to be obedient to God’s Holy and Divine Will for me.

This is why I continue to write these love-letters to you all.  Because I can only see good fruit resulting from this endeavor, for [Unnamed Party], and for the world.  Because I have seen and witnessed this good fruit in my own life.

May God continue to bless Medjugorje!

I love you all.

PEACE be with you, my most cherished friends.

In His Love,

          a soul

Our Lady is calling each of us to “open our hearts” to The Way of Salvation as provided for by Jesus at Holy Love Ministry.  Will you answer Her Call?

Our Lady of Medjugorje

2nd of the Month Messages to the World

January 2, 2011

(Our Lady calls us to open our hearts to The First Chamber—The Immaculate Heart of Mary, which, if pursued, will lead us to unity in The Divine Will with The Heavenly Father, The Final Chamber of The United Hearts of Jesus and Mary; Our Lady also says not to fear that She will be with us as we pursue the path at Holy Love)

“Dear children; Today I call you to unity in Jesus, my Son. My Motherly Heart prays that you may comprehend that you are God’s family. Through the spiritual freedom of will, which the Heavenly Father has given you, you are called to become cognizant of the truth, the good or the evil. May prayer and fasting open your hearts and help you to discover the Heavenly Father through my Son. In discovering the Father, your life will be directed to carrying out of God’s will and the realization of God’s family, in the way that my Son desires. I will not leave you alone on this path. Thank you.”

Mirjana felt that she could say to Our Lady: “We have all come to you with our sufferings and crosses. Help us, we implore you.” Our Lady extended Her hands towards us and said:

Open your hearts to me. Give your sufferings to me. The Mother will help.”

February 2, 2011

(Our Lady calls us to continual conversion—prayer without ceasing, which begins in The First Chamber—The Immaculate Heart of Mary, after we are purged from serious sins in The Holy Flame of Our Lady’s Beloved Heart)

“Dear children, you are gathering around me, you are seeking your way, you are seeking, you are seeking the truth but are forgetting what is the most important, you are forgetting to pray properly. Your lips pronounce countless words, but your spirit does not feel anything. Wandering in darkness, you even imagine God Himself according to yourselves, and not such as He really is in His love. Dear children, proper prayer comes from the depth of your heart, from your suffering, from your joy, from your seeking the forgiveness of sins. This is the way to come to know the right God, and by that also yourselves, because you are created according to Him. Prayer will bring you to the fulfillment of my desire, of my mission here with you, to the unity of God’s family. Thank you.”

March 2, 2011

(Our Lady again calls us to open our hearts to The First Chamber—The Immaculate Heart of Mary, which, if pursued, will lead us to unity in The Divine Will with The Heavenly Father, The Final Chamber of The United Hearts of Jesus and Mary)

“Dear children! My Motherly Heart suffers tremendously as I look at my children who persistently put what is human before what is of God, at my children who, despite everything that surrounds them and despite all the signs that are sent to them, think that they can walk without my Son. They cannot! They are walking to eternal perdition. That is why I am gathering you, who are ready to open your heart to me, you who are ready to be apostles of my love, to help me; so that by living God’s love you may be an example to those who do not know it. May fasting and prayer give you strength in that, and I bless you with the Motherly blessing in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Thank you.”

April 2, 2011

(Our Lady again calls us to open our hearts to The First Chamber—The Immaculate Heart of Mary, which, if pursued, will lead us to unity in The Divine Will with The Heavenly Father, The Final Chamber of The United Hearts of Jesus and Mary; Our Lady is also again calling us to continual conversion—to prayer without ceasing by following the example She set forth by Her Life).

“Dear children! With Motherly love I desire to open the heart of each of you and to teach you personal unity with the Father. To accept this, you must comprehend that you are important to God and that He is calling you individually. You must comprehend that your prayer is a conversation of a child with the Father; that love is the way by which you must set out – love for God and your neighbor. That is, my children, the love that has no boundaries, that is the love that emanates from truth and goes to the end. Follow me, my children, so that also others, in recognizing the truth and love in you may follow you. Thank you.”

Once again Our Lady called us to pray for our shepherds and said:

“They have a special place in my heart. They represent my Son.”

May 2, 2011

(Our Lady again calls us again to pursue The Spiritual Journey of The United Hearts of Jesus and Mary.  This spiritual journey has also been called by heaven to be known as “the way of salvation, holiness, perfection, and sanctity.”  The first step is the First Chamber—The Immaculate Heart of Mary, in which our serious sins are purged by Her Holy Flame.  Then the second step is continual conversion—prayer without ceasing—a life lived anew and differently, directed towards final unity with The Divine Will of The Heavenly Father).

“Dear children; God the Father is sending me to show you the way of salvation, because He, my children, desires to save you and not to condemn you. That is why I, as a mother, am gathering you around me, because with my motherly love I desire to help you to be free of the dirtiness of the past and to begin to live anew and differently. I am calling you to resurrect in my Son. Along with confession of sins renounce everything that has distanced you from my Son and that has made your life empty and unsuccessful. Say ‘yes’ to the Father with the heart and set out on the way of salvation to which He is calling you through the Holy Spirit. Thank you. I am especially praying for the shepherds, for God to help them to be alongside you with a fullness of heart.”

June 2, 2011

(Our Lady again calls us to open our hearts to The First Chamber—The Immaculate Heart of Mary, which, if pursued, will lead us to unity in The Divine Will with The Heavenly Father, The Final Chamber of The United Hearts of Jesus and Mary.  In particular, Our Lady is praying for unity with Jesus and His works: Medjugorje is Our Lady’s works, Holy Love Ministry is Jesus’ works)

“Dear children! As I call you to prayer for those who have not come to know the love of God, if you were to look into your hearts you would comprehend that I am speaking about many of you. With an open heart, sincerely ask yourselves if you want the living God or do you want to eliminate Him and live as you want. Look around you, my children, and see where the world is going, the world that thinks of doing everything without the Father, and which wanders in the darkness of temptation. I am offering to you the light of the Truth and the Holy Spirit. According to God’s plan I am with you to help you to have my Son, His Cross and Resurrection, triumph in your hearts. As a mother, I desire and pray for your unity with my Son and His works. I am here; you decide. Thank you.”

July 2, 2011

(Our Lady again calls us to purification in The First Chamber—The Immaculate Heart of Mary, through The Holy Flame of Our Lady’s Beloved Heart; and to set out with Her in the spiritual journey of The United Hearts of Jesus and Mary.  In particular, Our Lady is asking for our faith in Her Son’s good works at Holy Love)

“Dear children; today I call you to a difficult and painful step for your unity with my Son. I call you to complete admission and confession of sins, to purification. An impure heart cannot be in my Son and with my Son. An impure heart cannot give the fruit of love and unity. An impure heart cannot do correct and just things; it is not an example of the beauty of God’s love to those who surround it and to those who have not come to know that love. You, my children, are gathering around me full of enthusiasm, desire and expectations, and I implore the Good Father to, through the Holy Spirit, put my Son – faith, into your purified hearts. My children, obey me, set out with me.”

As Our Lady was leaving, to Her left She showed darkness and to Her right a Cross in golden light.

It was stated that Mirjana believes that Our Lady was showing the difference between a clean heart and an unclean heart. Mirjana also stated that Our Lady blessed all our religious objects and prayed for priests.

August 2, 2011

(Our Lady continues the message from July 2nd in which after we have been purified by The Holy Flame of Her Immaculate Heart, we are asked to continue the spiritual journey by being “born anew” in the joy of prayer without ceasing—the pursuit of the path of holiness as provided for by Jesus at Holy Love.  A spiritual journey which will lead to unity in The Divine Will of The Heavenly Father, to union with The Love of His Paternal Heart)

“Dear children; Today I call you to be born anew in prayer and through the Holy Spirit, to become a new people with my Son; a people who knows that if they have lost God, they have lost themselves; a people who knows that, with God, despite all sufferings and trials, they are secure and saved. I call you to gather into God’s family and to be strengthened with the Father’s strength. As individuals, my children, you cannot stop the evil that wants to begin to rule in this world and to destroy it. But, according to God’s will, all together, with my Son, you can change everything and heal the world. I call you to pray with all your heart for your shepherds, because my Son chose them. Thank you.”

September 2, 2011

(Our Lady again calls us to open our hearts to The First Chamber—The Immaculate Heart of Mary, which, if pursued, will lead us to unity in The Divine Will with The Heavenly Father, The Final Chamber of The United Hearts of Jesus and Mary.  Our Lady is also again calling us to continual conversion—to prayer without ceasing, which is Jesus being given to us “anew” as we pursue the path of holiness at Holy Love; Our Lady is also giving Jesus to us “anew” by directing us to His good works at Holy Love).

“Dear children; with all my heart and soul full of faith and love in the Heavenly Father, I gave my Son to you and am giving Him to you anew. My Son has brought you, the people of the entire world, to know the only true God and His love. He has led you on the way of truth and made you brothers and sisters. Therefore, my children, do not wander, do not close your heart before that truth, hope and love. Everything around you is passing and everything is falling apart, only the glory of God remains. Therefore, renounce everything that distances you from the Lord. Adore Him alone, because He is the only true God. I am with you and I will remain with you. I am especially praying for the shepherds that they may be worthy representatives of my Son and may lead you with love on the way of truth. Thank you.”

October 2, 2011

(Our Lady again calls us to the spiritual journey of The United Hearts of Jesus and Mary.  Our Lady is also again calling us to continual conversion—to the joy of prayer without ceasing, which will lead to unity with The Divine Will and Divine Love of The Heavenly Father.  In particular, Our Lady calls us to pursue the spiritual journey at Holy Love Ministry without fear, because She will continue to lead us both at Medjugorje and through Holy Love)

“Dear children; Also today my motherly heart calls you to prayer, to your personal relationship with God the Father, to the joy of prayer in Him. God the Father is not far away from you and He is not unknown to you. He revealed Himself to you through my Son and gave you Life that is my Son. Therefore, my children, do not give in to temptations that want to separate you from God the Father. Pray! Do not attempt to have families and societies without Him. Pray! Pray that your hearts may be flooded by the goodness which comes only from my Son, Who is sincere goodness. Only hearts filled with goodness can comprehend and accept God the Father. I will continue to lead you. In a special way I implore you not to judge your shepherds. My children, are you forgetting that God the Father called them? Pray! Thank you.”

Mirjana said: “I have never said anything before, but are you aware, that the Mother of God was with us? Each of us should ask himself: ‘Are you worthy of this?’ I am saying this because it is difficult for me to see Her (Our Lady) in pain, because each of us is seeking a miracle, but does not want to work a miracle in himself.”

November 2, 2011

(Our Lady again calls us to open our hearts to The First Chamber—The Immaculate Heart of Mary, which, if pursued, will lead us to unity in The Divine Will with The Heavenly Father, The Final Chamber of The United Hearts of Jesus and Mary.  Our Lady loves us and says that She will lead us if we only open our hearts to Her Call to Holy Love)

“Dear children, the Father has not left you to yourselves. Immeasurable is His love, the love that is bringing me to you, to help you to come to know Him, so that, through my Son, all of you can call Him ‘Father’ with the fullness of heart; that you can be one people in God’s family. However, my children, do not forget that you are not in this world only for yourselves, and that I am not calling you here only for your sake. Those who follow my Son think of the brother in Christ as of their very selves and they do not know selfishness. That is why I desire that you be the light of my Son. That to all those who have not come to know the Father – to all those who wander in the darkness of sin, despair, pain and loneliness – you may illuminate the way and that, with your life, you may show them the love of God. I am with you. If you open your hearts, I will lead you. Again I am calling you: pray for your shepherds. Thank you.”

Midnight Service at the United Hearts Field – Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe

Blessed Mother is here as Our Lady of Guadalupe, and has three large angels with Her. She says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“Dear children, your Heavenly Mother has come once again to seek the surrender of your hearts to Holy Love. It is in your moment to moment surrender that My coming to you produces the fruit of Holy Love in your hearts and in the world around you. The reason that Heaven intervenes on earth with a Mission such as this is that humanity is on the wrong course. I remind you that if you are not living in the Truth of Holy Love, you have embraced Satan’s lies.”

“There has never been a time in history when mankind has been more needy of redirection. There is a disordered dependence upon every type of human effort, all of which has displaced God as the Sovereign over the Universe and over every heart.”

“Dear children, I come in an effort to lovingly correct and to beg you to turn with repentant hearts to God’s Mercy. Failure in this effort leads to God’s Justice. My Son’s Patience is long spent. You cannot afford to put Him off longer.”

“In the world you have been given every sign that Jesus is displeased with you – natural disasters, economic woes, spiritual confusion – not to mention poor and compromised leadership. You do not have time now to speculate if these occurrences are warnings from God. They are warnings. Every heart that does not accept and live in Holy Love brings God’s Justice closer and intensifies His Justice.”

“Dear children, My continued efforts at this apparition site are a Mother’s desperate plea to Her wayward children. Do not await endorsements. Be Holy Love in the world.”

“Dear children, do not fail to see God’s faithfulness to you as He sends you these Messages enveloped by this Mission. In humble recompense, be faithful to God by becoming the Message. It is in this way you can best propagate all Heaven asks of you through the Messages.”

“If My desperate pleas to you go unheeded, and these Messages continue to be met with disregard, the world will experience unprecedented consequences. You will not be able – in truth – to claim that God abandoned you or you were not warned. God is with you even in His Justice; but now, dear children, it is a time of grace, and I am now forewarning you with Love. I cannot make you respond – you must choose it by your efforts.”

“Tonight, My dear children, I come most especially seeking your undaunted pursuit of personal holiness through the Chambers of Our United Hearts. Let no one convince you that this is an unworthy goal. Persevere no matter who tries to discourage you. There is nothing confusing in My call to you. Those who try to dissuade you from this path have duplicitous hearts. We cannot appease them. We must not try to do so, but remain faithful to the Truth. Ground your hearts in Holy Love which is Truth itself. All that comes against Holy Love is untruth and carries with it Satan’s confusion.”

“I invite you with a sincere heart to understand that just as the pagans sacrificed their young to false gods, every nation that has legalized abortion is guilty of the same crime. Abortion glorifies the god of self-love, and leaves nations that condone this crime against life vulnerable to every type of natural and manmade disaster.”

“Therefore, dear children, regard the Rosary of the Unborn as a lifeline, not only for the unborn, but also for whole nations.”

“Children, thank you for coming here to meet with Me tonight. I have crossed time and space to tell you that when you choose Holy Love you are choosing your own salvation. Pray, then, to always persevere in faith. These days your faith is under attack by compromise, untruths and liberalism; but if you pray, I will help you to persevere.”

“Tonight, My dear children, I am taking all your petitions to Heaven with Me – great ones and small ones – and placing them on the altar of My Son’s Divine Heart.”

“I’m blessing you with My Blessing of Motherly Love.”

December 12, 2011

Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe

Blessed Mother says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“Today I come to you as Patroness of the Americas to call all people into the realization of the Truth. Look afresh and with eyes of wisdom at the course mankind is following. All the technology God has blessed you with is rapidly leading to your destruction.”

“Science continues to discover new ways to destroy life in the womb – a crime that cries out for God’s Justice.”

“My miracles at Guadalupe and around the world today have not been enough to restore order in the world, for as many that listen and believe, more refuse to listen and to believe.”

“You, My children, are My hope. Continue in your prayer effort. Allow Me to work miracles through you. Trust in this Mission and propagate the Messages.”

BEGGING FOR LOVE

“I, your Jesus, am now a beggar. I am begging you to love.”

JESUS

(“Anne,” Direction for Our Times, September 1, 2010)

“You, My children, are My hope.”

OUR LADY

(Holy Love Ministry, December 12, 2011)

There are two stories in Holy Scripture involving Jesus and a blind beggar.

Here is the first story taken from the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 18, Verses 35-43 (also see Gospel of Mark, Chapter 10, Verses 46-52):

Now as he approached Jericho a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging, and hearing a crowd going by, he inquired what was happening. They told him, “Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.” He shouted, “Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me!” The people walking in front rebuked him, telling him to be silent, but he kept calling out all the more, “Son of David, have pity on me!” Then Jesus stopped and ordered that he be brought to him; and when he came near, Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” He replied, “Lord, please let me see.” Jesus told him, “Have sight; your faith has saved you.” He immediately received his sight and followed him, giving glory to God. When they saw this, all the people gave praise to God.

Here is the second story taken from the Gospel of John, Chapter 9:

As He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind?” Jesus answered, “It was neither that this man sinned, nor his parents; but it was so that the works of God might be displayed in him. We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.” When He had said this, He spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and applied the clay to his eyes, and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went away and washed, and came back seeing. Therefore the neighbors, and those who previously saw him as a beggar, were saying, “Is not this the one who used to sit and beg?” Others were saying, “This is he,” still others were saying, “No, but he is like him.” He kept saying, “I am the one.” So they were saying to him, “How then were your eyes opened?” He answered, “The man who is called Jesus made clay, and anointed my eyes, and said to me, ‘Go to Siloam and wash’; so I went away and washed, and I received sight.” They said to him, “Where is He?” He said, “I do not know.”

They brought to the Pharisees the man who was formerly blind. Now it was a Sabbath on the day when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes. Then the Pharisees also were asking him again how he received his sight. And he said to them, “He applied clay to my eyes, and I washed, and I see.” Therefore some of the Pharisees were saying, “This man is not from God, because He does not keep the Sabbath.” But others were saying, “How can a man who is a sinner perform such signs?” And there was a division among them. So they said to the blind man again, “What do you say about Him, since He opened your eyes?” And he said, “He is a prophet.”

The Jews then did not believe it of him, that he had been blind and had received sight, until they called the parents of the very one who had received his sight, and questioned them, saying, “Is this your son, who you say was born blind? Then how does he now see?” His parents answered them and said, “We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind; but how he now sees, we do not know; or who opened his eyes, we do not know. Ask him; he is of age, he will speak for himself.” His parents said this because they were afraid of the Jews; for the Jews had already agreed that if anyone confessed Him to be Christ, he was to be put out of the synagogue. For this reason his parents said, “He is of age; ask him.”

So a second time they called the man who had been blind, and said to him, “Give glory to God; we know that this man is a sinner.” He then answered, “Whether He is a sinner, I do not know; one thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.” So they said to him, “What did He do to you? How did He open your eyes?” He answered them, “I told you already and you did not listen; why do you want to hear it again? You do not want to become His disciples too, do you?”  They reviled him and said, “You are His disciple, but we are disciples of Moses. We know that God has spoken to Moses, but as for this man, we do not know where He is from.” The man answered and said to them, “Well, here is an amazing thing, that you do not know where He is from, and yet He opened my eyes. We know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He hears him. Since the beginning of time it has never been heard that anyone opened the eyes of a person born blind. If this man were not from God, He could do nothing.” They answered him, “You were born entirely in sins, and are you teaching us?” So they put him out.

Jesus heard that they had put him out, and finding him, He said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” He answered, “Who is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?” Jesus said to him, “You have both seen Him, and He is the one who is talking with you.” And he said, “Lord, I believe.” And he worshiped Him. And Jesus said, “For judgment I came into this world, so that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may become blind.” Those of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these things and said to Him, “We are not blind too, are we?” Jesus said to them, “If you were blind, you would have no sin; but since you say, ‘We see,’ your sin remains.

I will tell you, my dearly beloved family in Christ, that I have very poor eyesight.  I wear thick glasses and if it were not for such modern inventions, I would be cast out with the poor, to be a beggar, if I lived in olden times.

I am very grateful for my vision.  Even as a child, I was very thankful for my sight.  In particular, I remember being given an assignment in school to write down one wish for the world.  I wrote down that I wanted the blind to see.

At the time, I was referring to physical blindness.  But, as I have come to grow in my faith, I have realized that spiritual blindness is a handicap far greater than physical blindness.  For, spiritual blindness is far more serious, because it affects the soul.  It can lead to spiritual death.

I have written that my confirmation saint is St. Cecilia.  She is my patroness because I admired her fervent faith and deep abiding trust in God and her martyrdom.

Little did I know at the time, that St. Cecilia is far more well-known for being the patroness of music.  So, I am quite blessed to have a patroness that I can look up to for inspiration in my life and in my prayer-life, particularly, in song.  She encourages me a lot.

“Cecilia” means “way to the blind,” and I like to think that my sister in love leads me in life so as not to be spiritually blind but to always see the Light of Christ in all people, situations, and things.

Another dear sister in love of mine is St. Philomena.  She was a young martyr of the faith, who is a great role model for me.  I love her so tenderly.

“Philomena” means “daughter of the Light,” being derived from the Latin word for “light” that also has the meaning for “eye, clearness, and understanding.”  And in my mind, her name, St. Philomena, is so closely linked to my patroness, St. Cecilia, as her devout life and young martyrdom witnesses to others, so they may see with their spiritual eyes, with clearness and understanding, the Light of Her Beloved Spouse, Jesus.

Oh, how I love my saintly sisters!

Now, the reason why I bring up two of my favorite sisters to you, is to share my hope and dream for Holy Love to spread throughout the world—to the ends of the earth—so, that all will live and abide in the Peace of The Lord.

I pray for, and in unity with the saints of heaven, for spiritual blindness to end in this world.  For The Light of Christ to shine so brilliantly in our souls—so much so that our love of God will never fade and will always be foremost in our hearts.  That all souls will choose God and live totally His Holy Commandments of Love—love of God and love of neighbor as self.

As I follow the heavenly messages of a simple handful of visionaries and prophets in the world, one message from Jesus struck me so profoundly once.  It was received by “Anne,” who is associated with Direction for Our Times, Jesus Christ, The Returning King (directionforourtimes.com).  Jesus said these words as part of a longer message:

“I, your Jesus, am now a beggar. I am begging you to love.”

(September 1, 2010)

And these simple words from Jesus, Our God, struck me so profoundly, because I thought to myself, if there is anyone who should be a beggar, it should be me, not God.

Yet, here is My God begging me for His affection.  For His love to reside in my heart, and so, in turn to give that love to others in the world.

I had to reread these chosen words over and over again, as they so affected me.  My God, Who has everything and needs nothing, Is a beggar before me.  A beggar for my love.  It brought tears to my eyes.

Has the world become so spiritually blind that Our Great and Awesome God, Our Lord, Our Glorious King and Master, has to beg for our affection now?

And are our hearts so cold and indifferent than we can no longer grasp the magnitude of Our God needing to beg for love from us?

This is a tragedy to me.

My Jesus is now a beggar like the blind man at the side of the road at Jericho.

My sweet Jesus, My sweet Jesus, the beggar, is now pleading with all of humanity to turn back to His Most Sacred Heart.  But, who is listening to His Heartbeat?  Who is tending to His Open Wound?

***

On August 8, 2010, this heavenly message was given at Holy Love Ministry:

I see a great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says:

“I am the Creator of all.”

“I desire mankind know and understand My Eternal Heart. The Heart of My Son was pierced by a lance. The Heart of His Mother is pierced by seven swords. Today I tell you, My Own Heart is an open Wound which cries out for Justice.”

“The more mankind separates himself from My Commandments and divorces himself from loving Me – pleasing Me – the greater My cry for Justice. It is not possible for an open wound to heal when it is continually assaulted from without. A wound must be tenderly nursed back to health. Prayer and sacrifice are the means by which My Heart can be healed, but these must be applied with love. Otherwise the remedy must be Justice. Please tend to My Wounded Heart.”

***

I will tell you, my brothers and sisters in Christ, when I read this message from God the Father, it really affected me, too.

The Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord Is an Open Wound that keeps getting larger and larger as more grievous sin takes place in the world.

How can the Most Sacred Heart of Our Father heal when we keep assaulting it with sin upon sin?  When we match Pure Love with hatred?

The simple answer is that it cannot.  The Open Wound of Our Father’s Loving Heart cannot heal if we do not apply the remedies of prayer and sacrifice to nurse it back to health.

Our Father at Holy Love Ministry once said this in a heavenly message:

“This is not the hour for one apparition to oppose another or false discernment to cloud the truth…  The truth is Holy Love.”

(April 7, 2011)

My brothers and sisters, my beloved family in Christ, oh, how I love you all!  Please do not allow Our Blessed Mother, Our Beloved Jesus, or Our Most Tender Father, to beg any further from this generation the affection and love needed now.  It breaks my heart, to even know how they humble themselves to become beggars for our love.

Please…  Our Blessed Mother Is Our Hope of Salvation, but my sweet family of God, we, Her children in the world, ARE the hope of Our Blessed Mother.  We are the hope of the Mother of God for this world to change for the better.

Please, answer Her Call.  Her Call at Holy Love Ministry.  Have the faith to believe with sight unseen.  Simple trust of a child.  I beg you all so much with love in my heart.

I love you all.

PEACE be with you, my most cherished friends.

In His Love,

        a soul

A HYMN OF LOVE

“Pray without ceasing.”

–St. Paul

(1 Thessalonians, Chapter 5, Verse 17)

As I have become closer to Our Lady in prayer, I have received many kernels of wisdom that Our Lord has provided to me.

It has always been a challenge for me to live a life of “continual prayer.”  As St. Paul exhorts us, we should “pray without ceasing” and I have tried in so many ways, to live this command, with very little success.

It is so easy in our humanity, to “give up.”  To think this is an impossible request and task of The Lord.  But, I have learned, through Our Lady, that She offers a “lighter” and “less burdensome” path if we only open ourselves to Our Lady’s help and support in prayer.

Truly, Our Lady is Our Blessed Mother and She IS the way par excellence to Our Lord.

Our Lady is the Way to the Way of The Lord.

I once read a longtime ago in mystical revelation that all Christians, including those who are not Catholic, pray with Our Lady.  That, despite acknowledging Our Blessed Mother’s intercession, every prayer passes through Her Hands.

And that little revelation of Divine Truth stayed with me, even though, I didn’t understand what it meant until now.

As I have shared in earlier writings, the Blessed Mother is TRULY Our Mediatrix of Grace.  For every grace flows from Our Lord through Our Lady through Her Hands to us on earth.

And I also realized that when we ask for intercession from The Saints, that holy grace flows from Our Lord through Our Lady through The Saints to us on earth.  So that, Our Lady “has a hand” in every grace dispensed to us, whether we acknowledge it or not.

Well, The Lord has enlightened me tonight to understand that Our Lady is not just our conduit of grace, but that She is also TRULY our conduit of prayer.  Let me explain.

I understood the theological concept that Our Lady is Our Advocate.  That, for example, when we pray the “Hail Mary” prayer that Our Lady is listening to us and praying alongside us to The Heavenly Father and Her Divine Son.

I could understand easily enough that role of Our Lady being a prayer advocate.  However, as I have become closer to Our Lady through prayer, particularly, in the Rosary of the Unborn (holylove.org), Our Lord has granted me more insight to more fully understand this special role of Our Lady as Our Advocate.

Revealed by Our Lady, Queen of Heaven, at Holy Love Ministry, the Rosary of the Unborn is a very special rosary has been given to us to overcome and triumph over the evil of abortion.  Consisting of Precious Blood of Our Lord and the Precious Teardrops of Our Lady, with every “Hail Mary” prayer said lovingly on each of its beads, a precious unborn child is saved from abortion.

Said faithfully, and with genuine love, over 50 babies can be saved from abortion each time this particular Rosary is prayed to God and Our Lady.  It is a very special treasure straight from Heaven and should be used by all in their daily devotions.

And, so, after reading a very powerful heavenly message given on October 7, 2014, through Holy Love Ministry, I realized that my efforts of praying 5 Mysteries of the Holy Rosary (50 Hail Marys) each day was not enough.  I realized quite urgently that I needed to redouble my efforts tenfold, if I was going to assist Heaven in saving unborn infants from abortion and mitigate and perhaps temper God’s Divine Wrath.

So, I asked myself honestly, how many Hail Mary’s could I do in a day?  A thousand?  Eight hundred?

I had no idea how many Rosaries of the Unborn I could do each day, but at the beginning, I had lofty ideas.  Alas, as time showed, my initial hopes and goals proved elusive…

Some days, I prayed over 600 Hail Marys (over 3 complete rosaries).  Others, I averaged about 200, or at the very least, 100 Hail Marys a day.  So, I was making daily progress, but not as grand as a 1000 unborn babies…  This made me sad.

But, The Lord was very kind to me.  Whenever I felt discouraged, He would remind me of the “Starfish” story that I read many years ago that always stayed with me.

There once was an American who was on vacation in Mexico.  One early morning, he went to the beach and saw hundreds of starfish washed up on the sand.

The American also saw an elderly man also on the beach, gingerly picking up one starfish at a time and throwing them back into the ocean.  And after watching the older gentleman do this for a while, the American finally approached the man and asked,

“Sir, why are you throwing back starfish into the ocean?  There are so many along the beach, it won’t make a difference?”

And the elderly man looked at him thoughtfully for a bit.  Then, he picked up another starfish, looked at it in his hands for a moment, then he threw the single starfish back into the ocean.

The older man then looked at the American and said, “It made a difference to that one.”

And so, through this constant reminder of the “Starfish,” it uplifted me to keep trying to save as many unborn infants as I could through daily Rosary prayer.

And so, I persisted.  Then, The Lord gave me another revelation about prayer to Our Lady tonight.  It is about “prayer fragments.”  Let me explain…

You see, Our Lady is Our Advocate.  As every prayer passes through Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart, She makes each prayer, each good deed, every sacrifice, even more beautiful in Our Lord’s Eyes.

Each of our efforts, which might seem little to offer and of little value to us, become purified, magnified, and beautified, through Our Lady.  So, that, every prayer is not only acceptable to Our Lord, but exquisite and ever-lovely to Him.

So, even if all we have to offer are “prayer fragments,” whether they be “half-said” prayers, or prayers said with much distraction, etc., if we offer them willingly to Our Lord with much love, Our Lady can move mountains of grace with them.

And so, this is what I have been trying to do.  Offering what little I can, with much love for the unborn infants, so Our Lady can save lives.

I have only come recently to know the beauty of a daily regimen of praying the rosary.  But, praying the Rosary of the Unborn has opened truly my eyes.

I work fulltime in a secular world, so yes, it can be difficult to fit in 50 Hail Marys, let alone, 600 a day, or 200 a day…  But, working on one “Starfish” at a time, I pray silently at my work cubicle in unison with a prolife rosary CD and my headphones.  And simply knowing that even my “prayer fragments” are helping Our Lady to save unborn children, I am persevering in this daily task for love of Our Lord.

I’ve always wanted to be able to “pray without ceasing.”  In the past, I’ve always used music to strive for this elusive goal.  This is because music, as the great saints have revealed, is like “praying twice” and it keeps me focused in the present moment without too much distraction.

So, in the past, singing songs to The Lord has always been my mainstay passion and primary focus of my prayer-life.  Sadly, the rosary was a devotional prayer that I always hoped to love, but was always challenged in doing.  It is only now, through truly persevering through daily use of the Rosary of the Unborn, to save unborn infants, that the rosary has brought my prayer-life more into focus and into sharper clarity.

And knowing that Our Lady is my personal prayer partner and prayer advocate has made a difference in my spiritual life.  If Our Lady is helping us with every prayer we say when we do not acknowledge Her presence and Her help, how much more grace and impact there must be if we actively ask Her to pray with us each moment of everyday?

In Our Lady, I am learning to “pray without ceasing.”

Oh, my brothers and sisters, it is liberating to truly know and acknowledge with our hearts that Our Lady is with us every moment in everyday, assisting us all we can to give glory to God every moment in our lives.  In Her, all my prayers, all my deeds, and sacrifices and sufferings are truly purified and magnified.

No longer do I need to worry or be concerned if my prayers are “good enough” or “if they even matter” or “if they are making a difference at all.”

Truly, everything, if I turn it over to Our Lady, Our Mother, is put to good use.  Nothing, no prayer, is ever wasted.

And so, all my victories in temptations and against bad thoughts become abundant fruit for Our Lady, as She rejoices in me and with me, over my triumphs over sin and evil.  She shares in me, Her joy and delight, as I live my life for the glory of God.

All the moments that I used to spend alone without much thought or reflection, now, get turned immediately over to Our Lady, by offering her my day and my life.

I may not be able to “pray without ceasing” on my own merits, but in The Lord, with Our Lady’s help, I can do all things through Him Who strengthens me.

I may not be able to “pray without ceasing” by myself.  But, I know who can.  Our Lady.

Oh, Blessed Mother, Our Blessed Queen, My Fair Lady!

I want my life to be a continual hymn of praise, love and devotion, to Our Lord.

I want my life to be one continual prayer to Our Lord.  So much so, that even in my silent moments, my heart beats in praise to Him, Who Is My Creator, My Redeemer, My Master, My One and My All.

Blessed Mother, I don’t have much to offer.  But, whatever I have, I give it all to you.

Make my prayers, my words, my thoughts, my deeds, my sacrifices and my sufferings ever-more beautiful and ever-more pleasing to God.

I love You, Lord.

May I always love You!

Amen.

Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary

(This Message was given in multiple parts over several days.)

Blessed Mother is here as Our Lady of Grace.

She is framed by the Rosary of the Unborn.

She says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“I come to you today as your Mother, your Refuge, and Queen of the Most Holy Rosary. Jesus sends Me to tell you that unless mankind can recognize his own frailties before God, wars, terrorism and every type of moral degeneration will continue. As it is, man has taken on the role of God, making decisions which protect evil and destroy good.”

“Dear children, these days, you are seeking human solutions to spiritual problems. Whole nations worship false gods and make violence into a religion. You concern yourselves with the economy, and yet your nation is spiritually bankrupt. The solution and your security is in your hands. It is the Holy Rosary. With the power of your rosary you can change hearts. You can convict the hearts of world leaders who abuse their authority and compromise Truth. You can convert the hearts of those who believe and obey corrupt leadership. You can stop wars.

“Dear children, I come to you on this Feast of the Most Holy Rosary to emphasize the importance of the rosary in the battle against the evil of these times. Evil is in position within the hearts of many world leaders. Satan’s hallmark is confusion and untruth. Leadership is abused when human rights are abused. These days mark the times of far greater abuse of authority than any other. The term ‘freedom’ has become a catch word for acceptance of sin and atrocious abuse of leadership. God’s Truth and His Authority are discounted, while mankind composes his own version of the ‘Truth’.”

“I tell you, solemnly, unless you pick up your rosaries and engage Satan in battle, grave consequences await you.”

“I tell you, God has created the whole world for the benefit of mankind, yet man has taken God’s Creation and misused it. Man does not see the Hand of God in the creation but, rather, his own human ingenuity. He sees himself as the creator and provider. Mankind does not comprehend his dependency upon God’s gratuity, even unto his next breath! It is this attitude which places this generation in a precarious position and unable to distinguish good from evil. It is this attitude which pre-disposes mankind from turning to Me, picking up the rosary and engaging Satan in battle*. Dear children, be careful of this disordered self-dependency. Be God-dependent.”

“All of the miracles I have worked throughout the centuries and so often at this site [Maranatha Spring and Shrine] through the grace of God, I count as miniscule compared to the graces poured out through one rosary prayed from the depths of the heart.”

“My children, you can vanquish the enemy within hearts now – if you listen to Me.”

“The heart of the world teeters on the abyss. It is the fervently-prayed rosary, which by My Son’s Mercy, holds back earth’s descent into disaster. The enemy does not want you to know this, but I am sent to you to reveal the difference between good and evil and to show you the path of victory.”

“Dear children, your role in the future of the world is integral. If you pray many rosaries, a certain and dangerous threat to the world will be mitigated, perhaps averted. You must combine your prayers with love and humility giving all your efforts over to the Will of God. Never allow Satan to convince you that your prayers do not count. That is a lie. You strengthen the outpouring of my grace with every Hail Mary.”

“If you understood the intense need I have for your rosaries, you would never put them down. As it is, I can only warn you of ominous events which are fast approaching unless many rosaries alter the chain of events. Many lives and souls can be saved by your efforts.”

“Dear children, before I leave you today, I will see into each and every heart. I will gather your petitions into My Immaculate Heart. When I return to Heaven, I will place them upon the altar of My Son’s Most Sacred and Mournful Heart. I will give each of you what you need the most, although it may not be what you consider your greatest need.”

“In return, I ask that you make the rosary a bigger part of your day. Pray for world leaders that they do not compromise the Truth or abuse their authority.”

“It is the evil that is in hearts which threatens world peace and the future of the world.”

“Dear children, today I remind you that Heaven weeps for the lack of discernment on the part of your leaders, between good and evil. If legalized abortion continues to be endorsed by world leaders, with certainty, the trials that I see coming will take place. You must use your rosaries to defend life in the womb.”

“My children, I love you. I’m taking all your petitions with Me to Heaven as I said.”

“Today I’m blessing you with My Blessing of Holy Love.”

* Read Ephesians 6:10-17 (Put on the Armor of God)

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your loins with Truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the equipment of the gospel of peace; above all taking the shield of faith, with which you can quench all the flaming darts of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.

The Church Bells Ring

(a gift for the priests)

As I sit listening to sweet love songs for My Lord, I contemplate how beautiful the ‘simple things’ are in life.  And as I think of these ‘simple things,’ I am reminded of how church bells are rung in joyful celebration of a new marriage, when a couple takes each others’ hands before The Lord in the blessed union of wedded love.

And as I thought of how beautiful an image that is, My Lord reminded me of how at the Most Blessed Consecration of The Holy Eucharist, the church bells ring again as Our Lord comes to us in the most humble appearances of the Consecrated Holy Bread and Wine.

So, as the church bells ring and the chosen one, the priest, pronounces the sweet heavenly words that bring forth The Holy Spirit to overshadow his person—this is similar to how The Holy Spirit overshadowed the Blessed Mother to bring forth The Christ Child into the world.  For, at that moment, at the Annunciation, the Blessed Mother became the wedded Spouse of The Holy Spirit, likewise, the priest renews his nuptial vows to The Lord at every mass, in the Most Blessed Consecration of The Holy Eucharist, at the wedding altar of the church.

So that, at the very moment of The Most Blessed Consecration, it is the priest’s sacrificial offering of his whole self and being, in mystical union with The Love of his life—The Heavenly Father, The Divine Son, and The Holy Spirit—comes the ‘fruit’ of Their Blessed and Holy Union, which is Jesus to each of us awaiting in the pews.

On July 16, 1999, at Holy Love, Jesus gave this message for our understanding:

“Daughter, allow Me to give understanding to your thoughts and to the rapture of your heart, for I am Jesus, born Incarnate. When you come before Me, let it always be as though it were the first time, the first moment of your understanding of My Real Presence. When you receive Me, let it be as My Most Holy Mother received Me at the Annunciation. Ask for the grace. It is given. Ask for the grace to allow Me to stay within the tabernacle of your heart after you receive Me – to linger there – to languish in your soul. I delight in those that desire My Presence. Oh, how I do take delight in them! Believe and have faith that I choose it for each soul.”

And on April 23, 2001, Jesus also gave the following message at Holy Love:

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate. When you receive Me under the form of the Eucharist, your heart becomes a tabernacle of Divine Love—Divine Mercy, for I am truly present in your heart during these moments just as I am truly present in the tabernacles of the world. It is during these precious moments in time that I cradle your soul in My Heart of hearts. I caress your petitions and press them into Divine Love. Treasure these moments as I do.”

How Awesome Is the Love of Jesus for each us in The Holy Eucharist!   For, in those precious moments in time when we unite ourselves to Our Lord in Holy Communion, we, too, step into the same mystical union made present to us by the priest and was first given to the Blessed Mother at the Annunciation.

We become ONE with Our Lord.  ONE in marital bless—united with the ultimate love of our lives, too.

For, just as “a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife, and the two of them become one body,” (Genesis 2:24) so it is that Jesus comes to each us from His Heavenly Father, through the hands of the priest, to cling to each of us in Holy Communion as we become one body with Our Lord.

How holy and precious is the vocation of a priest of The Lord!  The first father of his family, his children—the congregation, in imitation of Our True Father in Heaven.  And as a loving and good father, the priest spares us nothing, emptying himself all of self, to bring us all ‘good things,’ especially Jesus, as we grow and are nurtured by him in our faith.

May God bless us all in our priests!  Holy, holy, holy Is The Lord!  Thank You, My God, for the gift of them!

And so it is, through our fathers, that each of us, children of the Light, gains our precious salvation and enduring hope in The Lord.  For, as Revelation reveals, we, as the Body of Christ, as the Church and as the Bride of The Lord, become through our first fathers, a royal kingdom of priests, set aside for Our Heavenly Father, Our God.

So, let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory, on each Sunday, the wedding day of The Lamb.  Let us wear “a bright, clean linen garment” for our righteous deeds, as we present ourselves for Holy and Blessed Communion, in order to become a Holy Tabernacle of Love, spouse of Our Lord for those precious moments in time.

Indeed, the church bells are ringing.  Hallelujah and Amen.
