Your sacrifices mean so much right now that I will multiply their effect on the souls you are praying for…

Ezekiel 2:9-10 I looked, and a hand was stretched out to me, and a written scroll was in it. He spread it before me; it had writing on the front and on the back, and written on it were words of lamentation and mourning and woe.

“My children, do not fear what is to come and what is already here. I have been warning you, calling all to repentance. Now the time is at hand when all will know the awesome power of God. Their idols will be smashed one by one. There will be a loneliness on earth that has never before been felt on such a grand scale. This will be the loneliness of a soul bereft of its idols. But it is in that loneliness that I will act to show each soul the futility of life apart from me. When they have nothing left, it will be their final opportunity to turn to me. Many will do so, but there are also many who will be lost. Do not let up on your prayers. Your sacrifices mean so much right now that I will multiply their effect on the souls you are praying for. Do not take this gift lightly my children. Offer your prayers and sacrifices with great confidence for I mean to use you in new ways to conquer the immense territory of souls in need of conversion. Children pray!”

Beloved Father of my heart, your unimaginable mercy is such a gift to us. In the Divine Will accept all my prayers and sacrifices, especially my Flame of Love prayers, to advance the cause you have mentioned—the salvation of souls. I offer all to you in the Holy Name of Jesus, the Beloved, through the Flame of Love. Holy Mary, Mother of God, spread the effect of grace of thy Flame of Love over all of humanity now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Where the will of God is adored, there is peace, there is hope, there is abiding joy…

Nehemiah 9:21 For forty years you sustained them in the wilderness so that they lacked nothing; their clothes did not wear out and their feet did not swell.

“My children, trust in me! Can I say it too many times? Have you believed it yet? There is much more to come, it is true. All will suffer. And yet those who place their trust in me will be comforted. They will know a peace that no earthly power can give them. Children, what do you have that was not given to you? Trust in your Father who loves you. Remain in him and do not let yourself be distracted from what is essential, namely union with him. Let your daily duty be a prayer in the Divine Will. Let your every waking moment, every breath, be a prayer of surrender to the will of God. If you do this you will cease to worry. Peace will be your constant companion. For where the will of God is adored, there is peace, there is hope, there is abiding joy. Children ponder this. It is very important. Surrender to me. Believe that I love you. Here I am my little ones. I am near!”

Beloved Father of my heart, I thank you for your gratuitous love and care for your little unworthy children. Help me to trust in your love and mercy in all circumstances. May our Mother help me with her prayers and example. O my Father, I love you, I trust you, I surrender myself joyfully to your loving will for me and mine. Help me to trust you more! Amen.

Do not be blind and deaf to the sufferings of your brothers and sisters who are now in exile…

Nahum 3:7 Then all who see you will shrink from you and say, ‘Nineveh is devastated; who will bemoan her?’ Where shall I seek comforters for you?

“My children, do you see how these words are fulfilled in your day? Do not be blind and deaf to the sufferings of your brothers and sisters who are now in exile. Once again I have no place to lay my head. Do not be deaf to the cries of my children who are suffering and in peril because they bear my name. Come to their aid as you are able. Fast and pray for them. Their suffering is great and their martyrdom is near. Let mercy inspire you. Ask in prayer what the Lord wishes you to do for the Church that is suffering in this way. Heaven weeps. Join your heart to the compassionate heart of my Mother. She will lead you and you will comfort those in dire need. Children, have compassion, for the measure you give out is the measure you will receive. Children, be my hands and my heart in the world. In you my merciful heart has an outlet. Unite yourselves to my merciful heart and you will see miracles. I am working in you, but you too must work. Do your part. The days darken and your Lord needs you.”

O my Jesus, what a mystery it is that our poor efforts are needed by the Almighty, that within the perfect plan of salvation our cooperation is needed. Jesus, show us how to help with our prayers, sacrifices, and with our material goods, including our time, talent and treasure. We unite ourselves to your Merciful Heart. Have mercy on your persecuted children, Lord. In the Divine Will I fly to them to bring them your comfort. Please see to each one’s most pressing need and especially the children, the elderly and the ill. Jesus we trust in you. Save souls! Amen.

(One way to assist those souls is to support or become involved with on of the following organizations: Aid to the Church in Need or the Catholic Near East Welfare Association. Both organizations offer various ways we can assist the Suffering Church.)

The Way of the Cross for Greater Trust

Dear friends, the theme of trust in God has been central in my spiritual walk. Over the years, the Lord has taught me the importance of our absolute trust in Him. The signature at the bottom of the Divine Mercy image is no mere sentiment. It is a prayer given to us that was born of the longing in our Savior’s heart: Jesus I trust in you! Recently I felt called to write a Way of the Cross for Greater Trust, which includes excerpts from my prayer journal. May you be blessed as you journey with Our Lady on the Via Dolorosa, the way of trust.

I am giving (my gifts and graces) out more generously than ever and that is because you will need them…

Haggai 1:12 Then Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, and Joshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the voice of the Lord their God, and the words of the prophet Haggai, as the Lord their God had sent him; and the people feared the Lord.

“My children, what will it take before this perverse generation heeds the voices of my prophets? I have come with water and blood, love and mercy, and few are heeding my words. This is a stiff-necked people! All you who hear me—prepare! Rend your hearts! Fast and pray! The day of the Lord will be terrible indeed. Yet, I have not left you as orphans. Can you not cry out to me in trust and I will hear? Do not be afraid. My love is a love that conquers. My wounds bring healing. My death brings life. Ask for my strength, my gifts and graces. You will need them. Ask especially when you receive me in the Eucharist. I am giving them out more generously than ever and that is because you will need them. So ask! I am with you. We conquer together. Unite yourself to me*. Children I am near!”

O my Jesus, I place all my trust in you! I accept every gift and grace it pleases you to offer me. I ask that hearts will be opened to receiving your gifts, but I also ask that those who will receive them be given an abundance and that those gifts being rejected by others will be claimed by your faithful remnant. Here is our weakness Lord, give us your strength. May your kingdom come and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.

*This plea to unite ourselves to Jesus reminded me of the prayer he gave to Elizabeth Kindelmann:

Jesus (to Elizabeth): “This prayer is an instrument in your hands. By collaborating with Me, Satan will be blinded by it; and because of his blindness, souls will not be led into sin.”

May our feet journey together,
May our hands gather in unity,
May our hearts beat to the same rhythm,
May our souls be in harmony,
May our thoughts be in unison,
May our ears listen to the silence together,
May our glances melt in one another,
And may our lips beg Our Heavenly Father,
together, to obtain Mercy.
Amen.

Mother of God, spread the effect of grace of Thy Flame of Love over all of humanity, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

This week I asked our Mother for a certain favor. Then, at morning Mass I asked what she would like in return. Immediately I felt these words in my heart: “Spread devotion to my Immaculate Heart to the whole world,” and then, “Elizabeth Kindelmann”. Through Elizabeth Kindelmann, the Virgin Mary placed into our hands a new means to blind Satan: the Flame of Love of Her Immaculate Heart and this prayer: “Mother of God, spread the effect of grace of Thy Flame of Love over all of humanity, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”

I was given the message here below and then asked for a scripture passage and was given: Haggai 2:9 The latter splendor of this house shall be greater than the former, says the Lord of hosts; and in this place I will give prosperity, says the Lord of hosts.

BVM: “Beloved children, you do not fully understand what is at stake. If you did, you would eliminate all from your life that does not serve God’s holy will. Never has it been more important, more urgent, that my faithful servants divest themselves of what does not serve the Lord’s will. You allow so many distractions! You will weep one day over all the good left undone because you allowed yourself to be distracted from your divine purpose, and the tears will be bitter indeed. Begin anew, my children! This moment! Pray as never before. Offer penance. Give me your daily duty. I will transform everything in my Flame of Love. Children do not delay. The harvest of souls is very near.”

Blessed Mother, obtain for me new graces, that I may not be distracted from what God’s holy will desires of me. I offer my every moment to you. Help me to resist the pull of meaningless distractions and draw me ever deeper into your Flame of Love. Jesus in Mary, I trust in you. Save souls! “Mother of God, spread the effect of grace of Thy Flame of Love over all of humanity, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”

May Your Kingdom come, and your will be done O Lord!

Addendum: Dear friends as a confirmation, I heard from the holy souls at http://www.theflameoflove.org that my blog post came on the exact day that the official translation of the spiritual diary was released on Amazon! (Click here.) I have ordered the book and it is lovely.

I believe the Flame of Love devotion will lead to the fulfillment of Our Lady’s Fatima promise: In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.” Amen! Alleluia!

Your prayers can make all the difference for the lost…

Acts 3:19-21 Repent, therefore and turn to God so that your sins may be wiped out, so that the times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; and that he may send the Messiah appointed for you, that is, Jesus, who must remain in heaven until the time of universal restoration, that God announced long ago through his holy prophets.

“Beloved, how I long to restore what is mine! To take back what the enemy, the thief and the liar, has taken by subterfuge, unlawfully, with stealth, cunning, and pure malice. So many souls have been seduced, tricked, stolen. Others, many others, have gone willingly, rejecting the Lord of Love, though they knew of his works of mercy and compassion. My children, pray for these souls most of all. Your prayers can make all the difference for the lost. For your sake, I will continue to shower graces upon them, breaking down their stony hearts one grain at a time. Believe in my mercy. Believe that I can use you. I do this through no merit of your own, but through your willingness to be an instrument of mercy, through the Blood of Christ. Souls, my children! Give me souls!”

O my Jesus, I praise your infinite mercy and ask you to use me as you wish to win souls for the kingdom through your most Precious Blood. Jesus, beloved, I trust in you and not in myself. I enter into the holy wound at your side and bring with me all those you have given me to pray for, most especially the most hardened sinners. Amen.

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.

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!
