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.
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.
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!
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—post especially the sacraments. Jesus we trust in you. Save souls!
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!
Isaiah 15:8-9 For a cry has gone around the land of Moab, the wailing reaches to Eglaim, the wailing reaches to Beer-elim, for the waters of Dobon are full of blood.”
“My beloved children, have you let up on your prayers and sacrifices? If you knew the destruction that is coming, you would not cease to fast and pray. My children, draw near to me. I am your Deliverer. I am the Just Warrior, the Faithful Commander, the Mighty Conqueror. I am with all those who call on me. Will you suffer? Did I suffer? Do not think about what you may be asked to endure. It is fruitless to dwell on the unknown. Remain in me, here and now. The present is where peace dwells; anxiety belongs to the future. Remain in me and you will know peace no matter the circumstances. Children I assure you, a glorious victory is in store for all those who trust in me. Children I am near.”
Jesus, Beloved, I trust in you. Help me to remain rooted in your presence in the present moment. I offer you each present moment with its joys and sorrows, in the Divine Will, for the conversion of a great many sinners, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Lord have mercy on us all. Jesus I trust in you. Save souls! Amen.
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.
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.
