Judith 3:13 The Lord heard their prayers and had regard for their distress; for the people fasted for many days throughout Judea and in Jerusalem before the sanctuary of the Lord almighty.
“Beloved children, weep and wail! Offer me all things, great and small, so that the calamities may yet be mitigated. I have been exhorting you to prayer and sacrifice for many years now. My words fall on deaf ears far too often. You who hear me and heed my warnings must bear the greater share of the burden. You are Simon of Cyrene and I am asking you to carry my cross. Do not take it up reluctantly, but with great joy give thanks to God for the great honor he bestows on you and the great trust he places in you in allowing you to carry so precious a treasure as the cross of Christ. Simon could not have known, but you know. Therefore, when I ask you to carry a burden, embrace it with holy joy. Offer it to the Father in the Divine Will in the name of everyone to make up for what is lacking in those who refuse their mission. Make your fiat one with mine and our Mother’s. Children, beloved ones, I am depending on you. You have no idea what your fiat can purchase. Trust in me, my children. The world is in need of your fiat!”
O my Jesus, forgive me for all the times I have refused to help you carry your cross. How weak I am! But your mercy far surpasses my weakness and so I ask you in the Divine Will to take all my errors and sins and redo them in the Divine Will as if I had done them well the first time. I ask this so your holy will may be accomplished in the world and that your kingdom may come. I give you my fiat linked to yours and to our Mother’s. Jesus I trust in you.
(Note: On Saturday at Mass I was looking at the crucifix and praying for the coming of the Kingdom of the Divine Will. I felt the Lord tell me that the road to the kingdom is the way of the cross. So we need to view the hardships we are asked to endure through the lens of the cross, from the vantage point of the Kingdom. Jesus we trust in you, even if your designs are too mysterious for us. We trust in you. Amen.
Luke 19:26 I tell you, to all those who have, more will be given; but from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away.
“O my child, the willful blindness of this generation is an anathema to God! I have filled the earth with evidence of my goodness, mercy, perfection and love. They look past me in the evidence and willfully turn a blind eye. How long must I put up with this generation? If not for the prayers of my faithful little ones, if not for their trust in my mercy, if not for my Mother’s intercession, this generation would have already been destroyed. My delay is for the sake of mercy. Therefore, do not let up on your prayers. Events are now in motion that will be the cause of great suffering in the world. My children, my beloved ones, weary as you are, now is the time to polish your armor with the oil of the sacraments, pick up your weapons with the new strength I offer, and enter the battle daily. There is much more to come, but you, my little warriors, I will uphold with my own strength. Be not afraid! I am near!”
O my Jesus, we trust in you completely. Grant us new strength for the battle. Remove from us all that does not glorify you. Use us as your broken instruments to fulfill your great plan of mercy. Blessed Mother, intercede for us! Amen.
Jeremiah 33:7 I will restore the fortunes of Judah and the fortunes of Israel, and rebuild them as they were at first.
“Beloved child, there is much to come but you must never lose hope. For all that I am doing must happen so that all may be made new in the Spirit. Your Lord has seen enough of sin on the earth; the tipping point has been reached. Do not be afraid, but pray for those who will die suddenly. Your prayers will make all the difference for the souls you intercede for. Keep your heart firmly rooted in the hope to which you are called. Like St. Paul you will have the strength to endure much. Place all your hope in me, my children, and none in yourselves. I am with you and I will never leave you. I am near!”
O my Jesus, help me to hope in you at all times. Do not let me lose faith, but give me the strength as I await with joyful hope the coming of the Kingdom of the Divine Will. Amen.
Psalm 111:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practise it have a good understanding. His praise endures for ever.
“Beloved, you do not know what is about to befall the earth. Cling to nothing but me and my Mother. There is nothing that can harm you if you do this, if you cling to us with unwavering faith. It is true, you may be asked to suffer. The harm you will avoid is spiritual harm. Yet, whatever happens, know that I hold you in the palm of my hand. Whatever befalls you, know that all is within the sphere of Divine Providence. Trust in me always. These trials are sent to test your trust. For it is easy to trust in times of comfort and prosperity. Easy to trust—but in whom? In God or in your wealth? No, it is in the crucible of suffering that one’s faith is tested. How will you fare? Practise now by accepting all things as from my loving hand. Practise in small things so as to build spiritual muscle. Never grumble or complain, but pour yourself out in love and service. Begin with those closest to you. Accept their faults and failings as I accept yours. Be swift to forgive as I am. There is much to come. I have been telling you this for a long time. Do not be afraid, but let faith be your guidepost in all things. I am near.”
O my Jesus, help me to trust in you in all the circumstances of my life. In childlike trust I cling to you and our Mother. Grant me the grace, O Lord, to triumph in trust always. Jesus I trust in you! Save souls!
Matthew 6:8 Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
Last night I dreamed that someone I know had a near-death experience and when he came back he said he had seen God the Father who said to him, “Come to Papa.” He said he was not afraid of death anymore. I also noticed a new energy and a new life in him.
I feel this was a call to be more like little children in prayer, trusting in our loving Papa, and longing to spend more time in his loving presence.
Matthew 12:39-40 But he answered them, “An evil and adulterous generation asks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For just as Jonah was in the belly of the sea monster, so for three days and three nights the Son of Man will be in the heart of the earth.”
“My child, this too is a wicked and adulterous generation that seeks a sign. They will not believe in me unless they first see a sign. Yet do they believe even when I send signs? No, they are quick to discount even the most amazing signs. They shut their eyes and stop their ears, not wanting to believe. What folly! The sign of Jonah will be given to them and what a terrible day that will be! For I will withdraw my presence and the world will be plunged into darkness—a darkness no earthly light will penetrate or dispel. It will be a darkness, not just of the eyes, but of the heart. Only those who have turned to me in trust will be comforted. My children without me, it will be impossible to withstand such a time. Cling to me, my children. Cling to my Mother. She is the agent I have chosen to lead my children as Moses led the Israelites through the sea on dry ground. No matter what happens, do not lose faith, for it is truly your only possession. Children, I tell you this, not so that you will be afraid, but so that you will believe and trust in me and so that you will NOT be afraid. Children, draw near. My Mother calls you to her. Draw near.”
O Jesus and Mary, what mercy your grant us! What love! Beloved Mother of our hearts we rest in the crossing of your arms and bring with us all those in our territory of souls, so that all will be converted and in the Divine Will none will be lost. Jesus and Mary we trust in you! Save souls!
Psalm 118:9 O my strength, I will watch for you; for you, O God are my fortress.
“Beloved children, why do you worry? Why are you anxious? Do you not know that my Mother holds you ‘in the crossing of her arms?’* Beloved children, rest there in the bosom of the Virgin. She longs to comfort those who are afflicted. Draw near to her as I did, she whose enduring faith gave me such overwhelming joy in all my trials. You do not know what her love and faithfulness purchased for sinful humanity. She is the Mother of Mercy and the Queen of Peace. Ponder her titles**, my children, and you will slowly come to know her perfections and her grace. When you have come to know my Mother, you will be amazed at how far you have come in getting to know me. Rest in her, little children, and you will know peace, mercy, and grace. I am nearest to those who are near to my Mother.”
O Jesus we thank you for the unimaginable gift of your holy Mother to the world! Blessed Mother, I place my head on your Immaculate Heart, in the crossing of your arms. I rest in you as Jesus did. Queen of Mercy, Queen of Peace, Full of Grace, protect me and intercede for me. Draw me ever closer to Jesus. Alleluia! Amen.

Acts 3:6 But Peter said, “I have no silver or gold, but what I have I give you; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, stand up and walk…”
“My children, you have been given much spiritual treasure. Give more. Share more of the bounty you have been given. Take every opportunity to speak of the joy that abides in you. Give more. Share more. It is in giving that you will receive. Let this mean for you an unending abundance of spiritual fruit. My children the days are dark, but you carry the eternal flame of the Spirit within you. Let not sin obscure what grace has given you. For the light you carry is for the good of all. Grace and peace are yours in Christ Jesus. What more can you want? When the Holy Trinity indwells you, you have everything. Let the peace this gives you permeate your being. Do not let anxiety put out the flame, but cling to hope with joy. You have everything! Let gratitude overflow into your every thought, word, and deed. Then all will see me when they look at you. Children, you are mine and I love you.”
O my Jesus! Thank you for your grace and peace! Blessed Trinity of love I offer you the gratitude of the Gloriana for condescending to dwell in such a lowly soul as mine. Mary and Joseph, please remove everything in me that does not give glory to the Trinity. May the holy light of God shine in me and through me to all those God places in my path. Come Holy Spirit! I love you Lord! Come! Amen.
2 Maccabees 2:5-7 Jeremiah came and found a cave-dwelling and he brought there the tent and the ark and the altar of incense; then he sealed up the entrance. Some of those who followed him came up intending to mark the way, but could not find it. When Jeremiah learned of it, he rebuked them and declared: ‘The place shall remain unknown until God gathers his people together again and shows his mercy…’
“My beloved, do not be alarmed when the altar and the ark are taken from your midst. Know that when this happens, the Lord’s day of mercy is near. All these things have been revealed to you in Scripture. Then do not be afraid but offer all you can in the Divine Will. The great day of mercy is near—but so many will perish if you do not pray. Give me everything—give me souls! I am near to all who give me souls!”
Jesus help us to give you many souls. In your mercy multiply our efforts to the infinite in the Divine Will. Help us to always trust in your nearness even when all seems lost. Jesus we trust in you. Save souls! Amen.
Jeremiah 30:15 Why do you cry out over your hurt? Your pain is incurable. Because your guilt is great, because your sins are so numerous, I have done these things to you.
“Beloved children, what must I do so that you will turn back to me with all your hearts? My gifts are shunned; my precepts are ridiculed. How long must I put up with this faithless generation? Yet my just wrath is appeased by the little efforts of those who offer reparation. Give no heed to how small your offering is, but give it to me wrapped in the wounds of Jesus and the love of my Mother. Children, sin has purchased annihilation for the world many times over. It is only for the sake of those who try to comfort me, those little souls who love me and cling to me—for their sake alone have I relented from allowing sin to destroy the earth completely. You have seen how unity in prayer and fasting, especially when led by my servant, your Holy Father, how it can change the course of world events and even the laws of nature. Then do not hesitate, but run down the path of unity and fidelity. Be at peace, my dear children. Let my nearness be your sole comfort.”
Jesus, beloved, you are our sole comfort and we give infinite thanks for your presence in the Eucharist. We trust in your mercy and offer all our acts, large and small, imperfect as they may be, in the Divine Will, wrapped in the wounds of Jesus and the love of Mary. We make them perfect in the Divine Will in order to offer reparation for the great and many sins of humanity. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, have mercy on us and on the whole world. Maranatha! Come Lord Jesus! Amen.
