“Come to Papa…”

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.

I am nearest to those who are near to my Mother…

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.

When the Holy Trinity indwells you, you have everything…

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.

Let my Spirit dwell in you as an only child, a favored son…

Dear friends, these are the messages I received at the retreat I recently attended. The retreat master encouraged us to ask the Lord what we needed to work on. The Lord in his mercy gave me much to ponder.

Joel 2:12 Yet even now says the Lord, return to me with our whole heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.

“Beloved child, you honor me with your lips but your heart is far from me. Root out the idol! Turn to me with fasting and weeping. Crush everything in you that does not lead to me. Let my holiness flow through you unimpeded. Let my holy joy satisfy all your cravings. Let my Spirit dwell in you as an only child, a favored son. Let my peace fill you and do not be afraid to let go of all you cling to. Be assured that what you fear to lose is nothing and what you stand to gain is everything. Empty yourself! I am waiting for a place to lay my head.”

O my Jesus, forgive me for all the times I have placed an idol in my heart. I humbly repent of my attachments and ask you O Lord to fill me with your holy joy so that I may never look back. Jesus, you know my weakness. Let my heart not be divided but grant me every grace I need to act with temperance in all things. Jesus I trust in you. Amen.

Luke 12:3 Therefore, whatever you have said in the darkness will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered behind closed doors will be proclaimed on the housetops.”

“Beloved, do you see that what comes out of your mouth must issue from a pure spring? Let no idle talk issue from you. Let only light come through you and banish any dark thought. Hold every thought captive to Christ and let him say yea or nay to its utterance. Light, my child. Speak only light.”

Jesus, you know my weakness, my folly. Help me to keep you always in my sight, so that only light will issue from me. Let only your light come through me. Jesus help me! I surrender my tongue to your use. Jesus help me! Amen.

Acts 14:22 They strengthened the spirits of the disciples and exhorted them to persevere in the faith saying, “It is necessary for us to undergo many hardships to enter the kingdom of God.”

“My beloved, up to now your hardships have tested you and strengthened you. Those that are coming will be insurmountable outside of grace. I send you trials to build up your strength and so you will learn to persevere in faith. A day is coming when faith will be all you have left. But when you have faith you have everything. Therefore do not fear the time to come. Embrace the cross as I did, knowing that what it gives in grace far surpasses what it costs. Little one be at peace.”

Dear sweet Jesus, I have so little to offer you. I am weak and unrighteous but in you I am made righteous. Jesus I place all my trust in you. Amen.

It is when the night is darkest that I am most near to those who love me and call out to me…

Colossians 2:5 For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, and I rejoice to see your morale and the firmness of your faith in Christ.

“My children, believe in my presence at all times. It is when the night is darkest that I am most near to those who love me and call out to me. If you could see as I see, you would be appalled at what sin has done to the world. Indeed you are already appalled. Yet what you see is a minute fraction of what I see. Remember, my children, how near I am to you. What is to come will be unlike anything that has ever before befallen the world. Children I am as near to you as your own breath. Cling to me, hope in me, trust in me. I am near!”

O my Jesus, I believe, hope, and trust in you and ask pardon for all those who do not believe, do not hope, do not trust in you. Have mercy on us all! O Lord I believe in your nearness. In the Divine Will I place my “I love you” and “I thank you” in the gift of your nearness. Jesus I trust in you. Amen.

They cannot escape me any more than they can escape their own heart…

Baruch 2:29-32 If you do not heed my voice, surely this great and numerous throng will dwindle away among the nations to which I will scatter them. For I know they will not heed me, because they are a stiff-necked people. But in the land of their captivity they shall have a change of heart; they shall know that I, the LORD, am their God. I will give them hearts, and heedful ears; and they shall praise me in the land of their captivity, and shall invoke my name.

“Beloved children, do not despair! I have allowed the disobedient* to be scattered so that in the end I myself may gather them together. They try to run, but they cannot escape me any more than they can escape their own heart. In fact that would be an easier thing! I relentlessly pursue each soul, leaving signs of my presence—of which they take no notice. When this happens, I withdraw and allow them to feel my absence. Then when they have sunk to the lowest pit and give a glance my way, I myself lift them out, wash them clean, and put oil on their heads. Some of my children choose the thorniest path, but they do not know that at the end of every path and at each step on the way I AM. Pray my children. I long for souls! Pray!”

Jesus, beloved, lover of souls, I praise you for your relentless pursuit of even the most hardened sinners. In the Divine Will I pray for all those in my territory. Do not let them be lost forever, but in your mercy draw them into your gracious, loving embrace. Jesus I trust in you. Save souls! Amen.

(*I take this to refer to those who have turned their backs on the Church. The new disapora.)

Let waves of living water refresh your weary hearts…

Baruch 3:1-2 O Lord Almighty, God of Israel, the soul in anguish and the wearied spirit cry out to you. Hear O Lord, and have mercy for we have sinned before you.

“Beloved, children, throw yourselves into the font of my mercy. Let waves of living water refresh your weary hearts. Children, there is only one Word I speak—love! Love is the Word that set creation in motion. Love is the Word that sustains it. And what does that love look like? It is the cross. It is total self-giving. It is emptying your ‘self’ so that love can fill you and form you. The world is in great need of this agape love. Where can it be found? Where can my heart rest on earth? Empty yourselves, my children. My heart is looking for a place to rest.”

Heavenly Father, your love is everything! Grant us every grace we need to empty ourselves to that your love may find a home in us. Lead us, Lord, into your peace. Amen.

Little children, you do not grasp the power I give to faithful souls…

Psalm 2:10-11 And now, kings, give heed; take warning, rulers on earth. Serve the LORD with fear; with trembling bow down in homage, lest God be angry and you perish from the way in a sudden blaze of anger. Happy are all who take refuge in God!

“Little child, hear me well. You cannot imagine what is to come upon the earth. I have been exhorting you for years now, to pray and fast. The time of fulfillment is almost upon you. Indeed the labor pains have begun and will intensify before you see the glory of God revealed. Sin has purchased so much death! So much! All of heaven weeps for the earth. Yet the fidelity of my faithful ones is a balm and a bandage on the wounds inflicted on me and on the world by sin. Little children, you do not grasp the power I give to faithful souls. If you did, nothing would ever frighten you and you would fight temptation with your last ounce of blood. Be near to me now, my children. Let your presence give me comfort as mine gives you comfort. Together our embrace will light the flame of love in a world gone dark and cold. Love me, my children. It is the path to peace—in your heart and in the whole world.”

Jesus I love you! Be near to me always and may your love be always reflected in me so that the flame of your love might burn again in the world. Amen.

It was her sweet yearning, unknowing and innocent, that drew me down, attracting me like the strongest magnet…

Song of Songs 6:1 Where has your lover gone, O most beautiful among women? Where has your lover gone that we may seek him with you?

“My child, my beloved, seek me, desire me, draw me down to earth as my Mother did, the most beautiful of all women. There was never an instant of her life in which she did not yearn for me—even before she knew whom she yearned for. And how, as a child, could she have imagined the way in which the object of her yearning would come to her? Yet it was her sweet yearning, unknowing and innocent, that drew me down, attracting me like the strongest magnet. I longed to make myself fully known to her who desired me above all else, she who wed herself to me even in her mother’s womb. Oh, to describe such a love to mere creatures—it is beyond words! My children, how singular was this love that drew me down! Singular, unrepeatable, and yet I make available to you its merits and graces. Unite yourself to her in consecration and in the Divine Will. Give me again her desire. What joy it will give me to once again have a little child offering me that singular gift! And if many do so, I tell you all of heaven will come down as it did on the night of the Nativity, to see the love that drew God from heaven to earth. Ponder this, my children. What can you not do when such love is within your grasp? You will have the Infant King in your womb and in your heart.”

O Jesus! Beloved! What grace! What glory! In the Divine Will I offer you the pure desire of the Blessed Virgin, her yearning, her perfect love. In me, O Lord, I want you to find your Mother at every stage of her life calling you down as Savior and Lover. Marantatha! Come, my Beloved! I yearn for you! Come!

Do not settle for clay when the golden fruit of the Holy Spirit is offered to you…

Friends, today I was blessed to be able to watch the MaryTV broadcast of Ivan’s apparition. I participated in the whole event online. The apparition was followed by Mass presided by Cardinal Schönborn at the end of which there was an hour of adoration. The Lord and his Mother were very present and had some beautiful words of encouragement for us.

During the MaryTV broadcast of Ivan’s apparition

BVM: “Little one, I am sending you as a lamb among wolves, but you are not a lamb without a shepherd. You are a lamb whose Shepherd cannot be defeated. Be at peace.”

Here I am Lord. Fiat!

At adoration:

Jesus: “Be at peace my child. I have sent my Mother to you to call you back to me. Her efforts have borne golden fruit in but a few, silver in many more, but some of you are content with fruit of bronze or clay. Strive for the higher gifts, my children. You will have great need of them as the days darken. Do not settle for clay when the golden fruit of the Holy Spirit is offered to you. Men of clay, why do you hesitate? My love can raise you higher than you can imagine! My love is the wind that bears you up. My glory longs to enfold you, but you resist. Enter into my joy, dear children. The peace and joy of heaven, the golden fruit is within your grasp. Pray, be converted, offer your sacrifices and do it all through the perfection of the Immaculate Heart. In this way the fountain of glory will be opened to you and you will bear much fruit, the golden fruit of the kingdom. Does this surprise you, dear children? Do you find it unbelievable? That is because your gaze is fixed on your self. Fix your gaze on me, for in me all things are possible, and glory flows unimpeded. Do not be an impediment in the flow of glory, but by your total surrender to the will of God, become a living conduit of grace and glory in the world. Imagine a spigot. It may be turned low, or higher or fully on. Let your spigot never be anything less than fully on. Examine what prevents you from opening the flow to its greatest capacity. Root out sin and unhealthy attachments. My children, let my grace and glory flow! I long for it. I bless you my children. Ephphatha—be opened!”

Jesus, glorious Lord of love, beloved of the Father, we adore you and praise your glory. May all you desire be accomplished in us for your glory. Help us to root out all that is in us that impedes the flow of grace and glory into the world. Jesus, Beloved, Father, Beloved, Holy Spirit, Breath of Love, we adore you. Mother of God intercede for us always. Amen.

As I was preparing to post the message, I asked for a Scripture passage and was given:

Mark 7:32-35 And people brought to him a deaf man who had a speech impediment and begged him to lay his hand on him. He took him off by himself away from the crowd. He put his finger into the man’s ears and, spitting, touched his tongue; then he looked up to heaven and groaned, and said to him, “Ephphatha!” (that is, “Be opened!”) And (immediately) the man’s ears were opened, his speech impediment was removed, and he spoke plainly.
