I mean for you to participate actively in the awakening that is to come to the world…

Zechariah 8:20-21 Thus says the Lord of hosts: Peoples shall yet come, the inhabitants of many cities; the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, ‘Come, let us go to entreat the favour of the Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts; I myself am going.’

“My children, through your prayers and sacrifices I will work a great work. I mean for you to participate actively in the awakening that is to come to the world. Do not be remiss, but take up your cross daily and follow me. Quench my thirst. My thoughts on Calvary were fixed on the souls I died to save. Then bring me more souls—expand your territory of souls. Call down my blessing on all those I have given you to pray for. Be a blessing to the world. Offer prayers and sacrifices. Give me everything—there is nothing I cannot use. Even your weakness linked to the cross can save souls. Everything rests on my holy Divine Will. Then do not discount anything. The time has come to empty the storeroom. Give me everything. Do so in the Divine Will and you will be amazed at what I am able to work through you. Do not be discouraged; do not be afraid. I am very near.”

Jesus, beloved, I praise your gracious mercy and ask you to expand my territory of souls. Merciful beloved one, in the Divine Will I call down your blessing on all these souls. Help me to give you everything, to offer everything in the Divine Will for the sake of souls. Jesus I can do nothing, but by your cross all things become possible. Jesus I trust in you! Save souls! Amen.

Every aspect of the Church is in need of repair. What will you give me?

Nehemiah 3 (The re-building of the temple after exile.)

“My child, do you see what a long and arduous task it was to rebuild the temple? Do you see how many labourers were needed? Do you see the hardship, and how they had to work together? My child, multiply that effort ten thousand times and you will begin to see what I am asking of my faithful followers. Every aspect of the Church is in need of repair. What will you give me? Your heart? Your hands? Your time? Your sufferings? Your prayers? Do you see how much your Lord needs you? Do you understand what I am asking? Do not turn away. Do not make excuses, but give yourself completely to my holy will. I can assure you that what you give me in this life will be multiplied to the infinite in the next. I am asking, my children. Will you respond?”

O Jesus, you left the glory of heaven to suffer and die for us. Fill us with your generosity, that we might say with our Mother, “Fiat!” Here I am Lord. I come to do your will. Amen.

It is when you feel my presence the least that I am most near…

2 Corinthians 3:12 Since, then, we have such a hope, we act with great boldness.

“Beloved, what is there to fear? I hold you in the palm of my hand. Do you not believe that I am near? It is when you feel my presence the least that I am most near. Believe this! Have confidence! Do not let what is earthly distract you from believing in my nearness. Practise this today so that when you are really tested, your trust in me will not waver. Remain firm and steadfast. The day of glory is coming. Trust in me.”

O my Jesus, forgive me for all the times I have failed to trust in you. Your love and your goodness are unfailing. Grant me strength, patience, and the hope that can only be found in you. Jesus I trust in you. Save souls! Amen.

Happy are those who weep now for their sins, for they shall be comforted in the ocean of my mercy…

Joel 2:12-13 Yet even now says the Lord, return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; rend your hearts and not your clothing. Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and relents from punishing.

“My children, happy are those who weep now for their sins, for they shall be comforted in the ocean of my mercy. My heart was rent—then imitate me and do not hold back. If you rend your heart you will become an instrument of Divine Mercy. Blessed are you who mourn now for your sins. You shall rejoice in the kingdom of heaven. But woe to you when you refuse to weep and mourn now over your sins! The gates of mercy will close on you and then you shall weep bitterly! Children let all that is about to befall you always lead you to glorify God. Trust that whatever comes, it will be followed by something so glorious you will forget the pain of former days. Enter into my rest, dear faithful souls. I am near!”

Heavenly Father, in the Divine Will we offer you our deepest sorrow over our sins and failings. Have mercy on us and on all those you have given us to pray for. We trust that they will all receive the grace they need to come back to you with all their hearts. We include in our prayers this Lent all those who have no one to pray for them. Jesus we trust in you. Save souls!

Do not be alarmed when these situations come, but put on the armour of grace and let go a volley of arrows tipped with love and self-sacrifice…

Matthew 5:22 “But I say to you that if you are angry with a brother or sister, you will be liable to judgment; and if you insult a brother or sister you will be liable to the council; and if you say, ‘You fool!’ you will be liable to the hell of fire.”

“My children, never has it been more important that you set a guard over your thoughts and words. What you utter has ramifications in the spiritual realm. Remain pure. Do not give the devil a toehold. Words spoken in anger invoke the enemy; words spoken in love, peace, forgiveness, and fellowship drive him away. Always remember who your true enemy is—not the one who has injured you, but the enemy of souls. It is only when you bless your detractors and do good to those who injure you that you truly defeat evil. Then do not be alarmed when these situations come, but put on the armour of grace and let go a volley of arrows tipped with love and self-sacrifice. Yes, these are the weapons most feared by the enemy. Remain steadfast, and pure. Forgive always. Do not focus on what is earthly but focus on defeating the enemy. See all these situations as strategic battles and be glad of the opportunity to defeat the enemy one arrow at a time. Children—love! This is no mere platitude, no sugary sentiment, but a strong weapon in the spiritual battle raging all around. Children—love!”

Jesus, beloved, show us how to love with your own Heart and that of our Mother. We are weak in love, but you are infinitely strong. Therefore we place all our trust in you. Love in us. Tip our arrows with your love. Lord Jesus we surrender to the invincible power of love. Work in us and through us! Save souls! Amen.

The more you decrease, the more his light will increase in you…

John 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease.

“Beloved child of my heart, the Baptist understood his own role in the plan of salvation. Do you? Have you prayerfully discerned your role? Whatever is asked of you, whatever role you fulfill, the same principle applies: Christ must increase and you must decrease. Grow littler every day. For growth in faith is growth in humility. Learn to take every thought, word, and deed captive to Christ. Take your “self” out of the equation. Let Christ act in you. Empty yourself so that you may be used in a more glorious way by your Lord. The Baptist understood this and emptied himself to the point of embracing death. Child as the days darken you must surrender more completely to Christ than ever before. Put to death all that impedes you. Christ is the light that shines in the darkness. Will you be the lampstand? The more you decrease, the more his light will increase in you. Empty yourself of all attachments. Whether you have, or have not, let the praise of God be in you. Children, I am coming to restore my Bride, but what sorrow before that happens. I need all my faithful ones to be ready, that I may use each one as has been ordained from the beginning. Stand ready. Be little. I am near.”

O Jesus, my Lord and my General, help me to let go of all that keeps me from total surrender to your holy will. By your grace grant that you may increase in me and that I may decrease. Jesus, my Jesus, I love you, I trust you. I surrender myself joyfully to your most holy will. Jesus I trust in you alone. Amen.

Dream: Suddenly and ferociously the enemy attacked…

Micah 4: 9-10 Now why do you cry aloud? Is there no king in you? Has your counsellor perished, that pangs have seized you like a woman in labour? Writhe and groan, O daughter Zion, like a woman in labour, for now you shall go forth from the city and camp in the open country; you shall go to Babylon. There you shall be rescued, there the Lord will redeem you from the hands of your enemies.

Dream: The dream started in a hospital. I saw two men that I know making beds in the hospital. I asked why they were doing that. They said there was no one else to do it. Then I realized we were in a war. The two sides were the Germans and the Russians as in WWII when Nazi Germany invaded Russia. The Nazis were the enemy. I felt in the dream that I knew my side would win the war. But suddenly and ferociously the enemy attacked. I was astonished at the weapons they had. They drove their tanks over soldiers before they could so much as get out of the way. They fired their tank-guns and killed those farther afield. They were merciless. It was carnage, far, far worse than I had ever expected. What amazed me was how well-prepared and well-equipped the enemy was. Most astonishing was the speed with which the attack came and how easily they seemed to overtake those on our side. A most disturbingly vivid dream.

One thing I feel we are being warned about is complacency. We need to re-double our efforts, increase our prayers and sacrifices. We have the victory but let us not be caught off-guard. Watch and pray! The enemy wants to separate as many souls as possible from the Church so that they are not receiving the sacraments. Cling to the sacraments with all your might! They are the most powerful weapons we have. If you want to find out how powerful, read Marino Restrepo’s “Catholics Awake!”

Heavenly Father in Jesus we have the victory. Help us to remain steadfast in the faith. Help us to avail ourselves of the spiritual weapons you give us—most especially the sacraments. Jesus we trust in you. Save souls!

Even in catastrophe, my love is active so that sin will not reign forever…

Isaiah 13:2-3 On a bare hill raise a signal, cry aloud to them; wave the hand for them to enter the gates of the nobles. I myself have commanded my consecrated ones, have summoned my warriors, my proudly exulting ones, to execute my anger.

“Little children, you do not know, you cannot imagine what is coming to the world. In all of human history there has never been anything like it. A conglomeration of catastrophes—oh my children, draw near to me! The only safety is in the wound at my side, the fount of love and mercy. My children, you do not believe in my love, or you would do nothing outside of my holy will. My will is love alone. Yes, even in catastrophe, my love is active so that sin will not reign forever. My children, I am coming. Prepare your hearts. I am near.

O my Jesus, fount of love and mercy, draw me near. Remove from me everything that is contrary to your holy will. Jesus, merciful and loving Savior, I offer you also the souls you have given me to pray for, trusting in your goodness and infinite generosity. Jesus, Mary, Joseph, I love you! Save souls!

Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy…

A few nights ago I had a dream in which I was in a room with someone I know who is away from the church. I looked outside and saw a form coming towards us. I KNEW it was the Lord, even though the form was not human-shaped. I fell to my knees and began to pray repeatedly, “Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy…” The form covered us and then left. In the dream I felt this was a global event. I immediately turned to the person I was with and asked, “Did the Lord touch you?” and he said, “Yes!” I could see the conversion in him and was overjoyed. I feel this dream was a confirmation that our prayers—especially the Divine Mercy chaplet—are bearing fruit in souls. Let us not be lax in our prayers, but continue to flood the earth with Divine Mercy.

I asked for a Scripture passage for this dream and was given Obadiah 1:17 But there will be survivors on Mount Zion—a holy remnant. The house of Jacob will take possession of its own inheritance.

Lord Jesus, we believe that in you we have the victory, and that none of those you have given us to pray for will be lost. Help us to be persistent in prayer and take away all our useless distractions. Jesus help us to be your willing workers, winning for you with our prayers and sacrifices the souls for which you thirst. In your most holy name and in the Divine Will, we claim all these souls for the kingdom. Jesus we trust in you! Save souls!

Strive always to clothe my bride with the purest of garments…

Revelation 19:7-8 ‘…Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready; to her it has been granted to be clothed with fine linen, bright and pure’—for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.

“My children, ponder these things. The bride will be clothed with the deeds of the righteous at her marriage feast. How will you participate in the dressing of the bride? Ask yourself now if your deeds do her honor. Strive for this. Strive always to clothe my bride with the purest of garments. You will be amazed in eternity when I show you how your pure acts have adorned my bride. But why wait for eternity? Make her beautiful now! She is glorious. Let her glory be seen in your righteous acts. My children, in this way you will honor me, for when you honor the bride, you honor the Bridegroom.”

Jesus, help me to keep this thought in front of me. Help me to honor you and your bride with acts of righteousness and purity. Lord, outside of grace I cannot do this. Have mercy on me and help me to glorify you always. Jesus I need you. Jesus I trust in you. Amen.
