Ruth Ann stopped receiving Messages to share from the Blessed Virgin Mary on January 25, 1995. On February 23, 1995, Jesus also stopped giving Messages to share. Since that time both Jesus and Mary have requested that we begin to reread the Messages already given and to reflect on them. But most of all, that we begin to live the Messages that have been given.

Message of August 13, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann: Lord, I am here to listen if You wish to speak to me.

Jesus: You have a busy day ahead of you.

Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, I do. But I also know that You are to come first, and the rest of my day will be tended to by You.

Jesus: You are right, little one, with all you have going on, are you sure you are ready to focus on Me totally?

Ruth Ann: You know me so well. My mind is going in so many directions; I need to stop and pray and get focused on You. (Ruth Ann did this, stopped and prayed)

Jesus: (after a while) Now, you are ready.

Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, I am.

Jesus: So many of My children never take the time to relax and just think of Me. Just saying My name over and over, can be like a gentle soothing rain to a parched soul. Too many of My children still seek distractions from the quiet. Quiet time with Me has become non-existent in the lives of most of My children. All of My children need some quiet time, even if it is before the dawn of a new day. Each of My children must seek the love and peace of their Jesus. Life on this earth can become so burdensome with too much activity, and too many distractions. Each of My children must realize that in seeking noise and distractions at all times of the day and night, they are shutting Me out.

My Mother tells Her children over and over, "Pray, dear children, pray." Your lives have become so cluttered with the things of the world, you have no time for prayer, but I am telling you to make time for prayer. Begin with just a few moments a day. As you find the peace that is so necessary to exist in your troubled world, you will discover more and more time to spend with Me. In this world of darkness, orchestrated by the greatest distractor of all, the evil one, My children have a difficult time pulling themselves out into the light. Even you, at times, little one, find many distractions that keep you from sitting quietly with Me.

Ruth Ann: Lord, You are right. My world has become very full and very busy with Your work.

Jesus: Yes, this is true, child, and that is even more reason for you to find the time to be with Me. You need this time for renewal of your peace. If you choose to ignore quiet time with Me, then you will lose your peace, which is extremely important in the work you do. Seek peace always, and the rest I will tend to. Seek Me, and all other things you will need will follow. The strength and energy you need to get through each day, no matter how full, will be here for you. I will provide.

You are thinking, 'How can this be? Some days I am so busy I can't find any quiet time'. Walk away from the busyness of your day and find a quiet room, even if it is only for a few moments. You will see a difference. This is not only for you, it is for all My children.

Ruth Ann: My priest was telling me again how important it is to find time away.

Jesus: Yes, he understands that continually being at the beck and call of God's children can take much energy and sacrifice of one's peace. He has informed you, you should find time on a regular basis to renew yourself. That is why My priests go on retreats from time to time. The word 'retreat' gives you some idea as to what is necessary in a world where you are constantly available to others. Retreats are a healthy way of renewing one's body, mind, and soul. All must work together perfectly in order to do God's work well. So, yes, it is important to seek out the time away, so you can return rested of body, mind, and spirit, and be better able to do My work. The busier you become, the more you will need to find time to renew yourself.

Ruth Ann: I'll take it one day at a time, Lord, as You have told me so many times.

Jesus: It is so, little one, it is so. One day at a time. Now, you have much to do today. Be at peace with all you do and say.


Message of August 17, 1994, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

My Dear Children,

My Motherly blessing I give to you. Be at peace with one another. God awaits your total commitment to doing His will. Live the messages that I bring to you. Then, and only then, can peace reign in your hearts. Let this peace begin with you, so that you can be an example for My children who do not seek peace. Love one another as God loves you. Be forgiving, and know in this forgiveness there brings hope for a new tomorrow. Sing praises to My Son Who is the prime example of love, peace, and forgiveness.


Message of August 24, 1994, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

My Dear Children,

You hear the words that are being spoken to you, but you are not listening with your heart. You must not only hear My words, but you must apply them to your daily life. God loves you, and I love you. He wishes you to keep this peace in a world filled with darkness and unrest. This peace is difficult to attain. That is why I am here for you dear children, to see that you stay focused on My Son Who is light, love, and peace. My Mother's heart aches for each one of you as you struggle to keep this peace. The evil one wishes to destroy everything I wish for each one of you. Place all your cares, fears, and concerns before the throne of God. Pray, dear children, and know I am praying with you.


Message of September 7, 1994 from Our Lady
(After Prayer Group Message)

Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother, for the message.

Our Lady: Child, the message is given in love and warmth of a Mother concerned for Her little children. These words I repeat over and over, and yet so few are listening. Many ignore the messages because the words must be taken to heart. When this is done, a change must come about in one's life. Not many want to make this change. So many still seek the comforts of the body, and ignore those things that bring comfort to the soul. No amount of money or material wealth can bring about true happiness. True happiness cannot be bought. Peace of mind and heart come from God, and are available for the asking, but man does not choose to accept this peace, because it means a change in his life. It would mean that God must be put first, and that all other things would follow. The material comforts of the body would no longer be of importance.

Man does not realize, child, that God is giving him many chances to have a change of heart, and choose to live a life of peace. Peace can only come from God, and staying focused on all things that are of God. In a world totally given over to materialism, it is difficult to find peace or happiness. Man continues to want bigger and more, thinking this will bring happiness. When he gets those things, he finds his life is still lacking, so he seeks to find other ways to fill his emptiness.

The happiness he seeks cannot be found in the things of this world. Things of this world can be snatched from you in an instant. If all your material things were removed from you, at this moment, what would you have? If you are of God, you would have peace. If you are still of this world, you would be totally deva-stated and think your life was over. You must have a change of heart, little children, and realize that materialism is not the answer to happiness. The happiness it brings is superficial, and only lasts for a little while. God's love and peace is for eternity.

You must make a decision, My children. You must choose to live for My Son and have eternal happiness. I am here to help you choose to live for God. To live for God brings eternal happiness. This is what I want for you, but I cannot make this decision for you. You must listen and live My messages. Then, you will be able to decide for yourself that which is most important. The gift of eternal happi-ness with God in Heaven, is waiting for you. Change your heart. Be at peace.

Ruth Ann: Thank You for sharing this with me, Mother.

Our Lady: Child, your Mother wishes to save all souls, even the hardest of hearts. All are in need of help. I am calling out to all God's children. Some are listening, some are not. I will continue to call out for as long as I am allowed.

Message of Sept. 18, 1994, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

My Dear Children,

I am your Mother sent to you to guide you away from the world and back to My Son. You must listen to the words being spoken to you. Pray dear children, and ask God to help you understand the importance of what is being told to you by so many of My children asked to share My words. The time is now for you to listen and take to heart all I am telling you. What must God do to get the attention of His children? I have been allowed to come to you and guide you on the right path. I have come to you to help you save your souls, and those of your loved ones. Apparitions, visions, and locutions are becoming common among you, and still you do not recognize the sign of the end times.

Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to help you understand the Book of Revelations. You are living this part of the bible at the present time, and still you have not understood. You are blinded by greed and concern for your physical comfort. What of your immortal soul? Your body is only a temporary dwelling for your soul. Your body will die. Your soul lasts forever.

Live the words being spoken to you. Know they are of great importance. Pray, fast, and do pennance. Return to My Son. He is your hope and salvation. In a world on the brink of destruction, you must find peace. That peace can only come from God. Pray dear children, that you can attain this peace in your heart so important in these difficult times.

I will not be among you much longer. The words being spoken to you by many of My children, too, will cease. You must listen and live My messages now. God loves you, and I love you. Know I am here with you and praying for all those things for which you too are praying. My Motherly mantle surrounds you. You must pray.


Message of Sept. 18, 1994, from Our Lady
(After Prayer Group Message)

Ruth Ann: Mother, do You have anything to add?

Our Lady: Man continues on the path to self-destruction. Much pain and suffering is in store for My children. They have been blind and deaf to all that is being done. This is by choice, that man is destroying himself and the world around him. God has allowed Your Mother among you for many years, to help and guide you away from the path you have chosen.

Man continuously chooses evil instead of those things that are good for him. He seeks pleasures of the flesh, and yet he knows that flesh must die. Your soul lives on forever, little children. You must seek to nourish this soul through those things that are of God. My concern for you and your world is great. There is much pain in My heart because of the hardness of your hearts.

Soon I will no longer be allowed to be among you. My words, being shared with you, will also cease. What then will happen to My children who do not have the faith to sustain them? You must listen and live the messages that have been spoken to you. Know that God is trying to save your immortal souls. This precious gift He is giving you of My appearances and messages, is to bring you back to Him. Discard all in your life that is not of God, so that you can be at peace. God's peace is of the utmost importance in a world filled with no peace.

Darkness has covered your world. The only light in this darkness is that of My Son. Seek One Who is Light, Truth, and Love. Seek the Prince of Peace and know that this is the most important peace of all. As times become more and more difficult, know that His love endures forever. Listen to all that is being said to you, little children. My protective mantle surrounds you. You must pray.

Ruth Ann: Mother, the message You gave me for the farm today was quite strong.

Our Lady: Child, it too, will fall on deaf ears. My children do not wish to know the truth. If they know the truth, then they must change their heart, their lives must change, and all they hold dear must change. Things of the earth must be set aside for them to have room for those things that are of the utmost importance.


Message of October 4, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann: Lord, I had such peace yesterday after speaking with Your Mother. I think I truly felt blessed with this gift, instead of the mixed emotions that I usually feel. I usually feel my gift has been a mixed blessing because of all the sacrifices and struggles that have come with it.

Jesus: My Mother has a way of giving peace to all those whose lives she touches in any way. I sought this peace during My public life. When I was rejected, tired, and discouraged, I always sought the refuge and comfort that My Mother could bring to Me. You have discovered Her warmth and encouragement in hours when you have felt abandoned and alone with your cross. All of My children can find the same source of strength and encouragement in this special Mother. She is special in the eyes of God, for She was chosen to be the Mother of His earthly Son. She is special because She has cared and nurtured His Son unto His death on the cross.

Now She is tending to all His children on the earth. She is concerned for all. She wishes all of God's children to have the peace and feelings of hope that you exper-ienced yesterday. She wishes you, to keep that feeling of warmth and protection from all that would bring you unrest and the feeling of abandonment. Stay close to Her in prayer. She wishes to be your Mother, your strength, and your refuge, not just for you, little one, but for all God's children.

Ruth Ann: I feel so sorry for Her. She is so kind, loving, and caring. I can hear and feel it as She speaks with me. She is so concerned for all of us, and works so hard contin-uously, to bring us out of darkness, and closer to You. Yet so many of us ignore Her. Many think She is only for Catholics, and refuse to give Her the love and respect She deserves.

Jesus: You are correct, little one. She is here for all God's children, as is Her special prayer, the Rosary. Many need to use this source of strength in this time of darkness. You are feeling many of the feelings of My children so that you can understand their needs. You have felt despair, abandonment, hurt, anger, frustration, fear, doubt, and the list could go on and on. The reason for these feelings being allowed to come upon you, is for the sake of others. They must know that there is hope for them. There is a place of refuge for them. There is a source of strength and peace that many have not tapped, or bothered to seek. In a time when God's children struggle so, My Mother is a great source of strength and comfort. She was, and is, there for Me, and continues to be there for all of God's children. Those who have no earthly Mother, have not realized the source of love beyond earthly limits, if they have not turned to My Mother in their time of sorrow, grief, fear, or a feeling of abandonment.

My Mother is there to help and guide you to the source of all that is holy. She was, and is, the epitome of holiness and goodness. She wishes to share this love She has to give to all God's children, and wishes to draw them out of the darkness and back to the source of light. You were touched by the love and kindness given to you yesterday when you were in need. This awaits all of God's children. She truly loves and cares for all, and wishes to see all attain Eternal Salvation. She knows what awaits those who listen and live God's Word in the Holy Scriptures. She also knows what awaits those who choose evil over good, and darkness over light.

As a good and holy Mother, She wishes only good things for Her children, so those who seek the love and solace of My Mother can never go wrong. She wishes to bring all to Me. This too, is the will of God, that all His little children come unto Him Who loves them. Those who love My Mother are best loved by Me. I have said this before, and I will say it over and over. She has experienced deep pain and sorrow through the 'fiat' She gave to the will of God. She has suffered My agony and death, and She continues to suffer for all the children lost to Her Son. She has suffered My pain of rejection, humiliation, and eventually My death. She is your Mother, and has earned that right through the greatness of the One Who chose Her for this role. She has played a great part in the salvation of mankind, and continues to do so. Listen to the words being spoken to you by Her, and live these words. They are from Heaven, and are being brought here by One Who loves you.

Ruth Ann: Thank You for this message, Lord.

Jesus: It is to be shared.

Ruth Ann: It is written, Lord. It will be shared.


Message of October 22, 1994, from Our Lady

Ruth Ann: Mother, do You wish to speak to me?

Our Lady: Child, your Jesus has said all that needs to be said. You must stay focused on Him. He is your hope and salvation. He is Love, Hope, and Peace. My children continue to walk in a world where there is no light. The darkness is all around them, and if they do not focus on My Son, Who is the Light and Hope of salvation, they will be lost in this darkness.

I have come to lead My children out of this darkness, and into the Light that is My Son. Many refuse to listen, and this is causing them to continue on a path that leads to destruction. I have come to lead them and guide them, but I cannot make the choice needed in order for them to achieve the peace they desire. If they choose God, and all He stands for, there will be peace in man's heart, even though there may not be peace in the world around him. My children must realize that it is God's peace they seek. They try to find solace in the things of the world, and it cannot be found in material things. Greed and lust are common among you.

There is much sorrow in My Heart for those of My children not listening to the word of God, brought to this earth by His Mother. I can only do so much. I am allowed by God to do all that I am doing, but the time will come when what I am doing will no longer be allowed. I have come to assist you, and bring you back to My Jesus. You must listen, and follow the will of God for you. Be at peace with one another, and love God above all things. I am your Mother. Listen, and be obedient to your Father in Heaven. He loves you, and wishes your souls to be saved. My mantle surrounds you. Go in God's peace.

Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother, for speaking with me.

Our Lady: I do so that you may share what I am saying to those of My children who are willing to listen.

Ruth Ann: It is done, Mother.


Message of November 9, 1994, from Our Lady
(after prayer group message)

Ruth Ann: Mother, You are right. The times are very difficult right now, and our peace is being disturbed. Please be with us.

Our Lady: Child, I am here. You need not feel abandoned. God is a God of love, but He is also a God of justice. You must not concern yourself with the 'whys'. But know that even those things that happen in your world, caused by evil, can be used for the good of those who love and trust in Him. I wish for you to have peace, but in your world, it is difficult to find peace. Turmoil continues to disturb and take you away from all that is good and holy. Focus on My Son. Accept this cross, and know that you are not to carry it alone. The evil one is persistent, and will do all he can to bring unrest, hatred, and confusion into your world. This does not have to remain.

Give all to God. Place those things, over which you have no control, at the foot of the Cross. Give your hurts and burdens to One Who loves you. God's Son has carried the ultimate burden. You too, are asked to follow in His footsteps, but you are not to carry these burdens alone. Just as God's Son had Simon to help with the cross He carried, you too, will be provided with help in the carrying of your cross.

I am your Mother, here to help you, as you walk this difficult path. You cannot see the big picture, little children. Good will triumph over evil. Those who harm the least of My chosen ones, will have much for which to answer. It is not for you to wish harm to those who hurt you. Vengeance is Mine, sayeth the Lord'. Be at peace, and bask in the warmth and love of My Son Jesus. He is Light, Love, and Peace. Much prayer is needed, but know in your heart, God will tend to all things in His way and in His time. Do not allow the evil one to destroy the peace in your heart, so necessary for the salvation of your souls.

I give you My Motherly blessing. Know I am praying with you through these troubled times. Seek peace, little children. I am with you. You must pray.


Message of Nov. 20, 1994, from Our Lady
(After Prayer Group Message)

Ruth Ann: Mother, the message was quite lengthy. You have said the messages are to end. I was expecting a short message to begin preparing us for the removal of the messages.

Our Lady: These things needed to be said, child. Many who will be here today, and those who will read these words later, will realize the seriousness which I intend to convey in this message, and the messages that are forthcoming. The time will come when My children will no longer have these words put before them. They will be at a loss, for many have lived for the messages, and not lived the messages. It is time for them to begin living the words that have been spoken to them from Heaven. If My children would only take to heart the words being spoken, they would not be in torment. They would be at peace with their lives, and at peace with one another.

Man chose to ignore the words of My Son two thousand years ago, and man still continues to ignore these same words today. Man has chosen through his free will, the wrong choice. He chooses the way of the world, and finds himself farther and farther away from God. In choosing to follow the wrong path, he finds himself bogged down in the muck and mire of sin. Choose for God, little children. He can draw you out of this muck, mire, and darkness, and into the light. Then you will have peace in your hearts. With peace in your hearts, there can be peace in your world. This peace can only come from God, little children. Choose to do the will of the One Who created you. He wants only good things for you. Be at peace with what I am saying to you. Be at peace with one another.

Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother, for these words.


Message of January 5, 1995, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann: Lord, do You wish to speak to me?

Jesus: Little one, feel blessed, because your Jesus continues to be available to you, and others through you. As I continue to speak through you, for the benefit of all those who will listen, great graces abound.

My Mother has said, there will come a time when She will no longer speak with you, and give you messages for you to share, and this is to be, little one. It is not that She will no longer speak with you, but you will not share what She is sharing with you. She will be there for you, as you have need of Her.

Ruth Ann: Thank You for that, Lord.

Jesus: Little one, God has a plan, and it is difficult for you to understand all that is happening in your life at this time. As time goes on, those things you do not understand, will be made clear to you. Patience is a virtue, little one. It is also a gift. Not many of My children have this gift. Most of My children wish to have answers now. That is why it is so difficult for you to wait. But remember, all things come to him who waits.

Blessings will abound in the new year, little one. Many will be seeking the face of God, and many will continue to search for the true meaning of their existence. Many hearts will be touched, and many souls will be saved. You have been told this many times, but it is worth repeating. Your ministry is not going to end, but it is going to change. You have been prepared for this change. You will continue to be prepared for each and every task that God puts before you. Remember, many are asked but few are chosen.

You have said many times that you would have preferred God to have chosen someone else, for you feel unworthy. It is because you feel unworthy that you are just what is needed to get the work done, that must be done. None of My children could have related to a proud, arrogant, person who would act 'special', because of this gift. Most of My children are shy about their faith, and hesitant about sharing the gifts and blessings given to them. Others of My children can relate to someone who does not wish to be in the limelight, and would choose to be quiet, rather than share what has been given to them. Many of the same problems you have, are shared by My children who are reading the words I give to you. You do not realize the good you are doing, just in sharing your struggles and concerns.
So many of My children are seeking the same answers that you seek. They are hurting through losses similar to what you are exper-iencing, and they need to hear that God is watching over them, and will always be there for them through all their difficulties. Many times the feeling of total abandonment by Me, can be alleviated through the encouraging words of another. There is never a reason for one to feel totally alone. I am always here for all of My children. If you ever feel totally abandoned, it is through your lack of faith and trust in Me. God's word has been given to you, so that you could never feel alone. The Bible is at your fingertips, as it should be. If you, My children, would read My words on a daily basis, My children would feel My presence in these words.

My Mother has come to you to share the importance of these words, and has reminded you that these words must be taken seriously. The times have become extremely difficult for many of My children, but know that God's word will always be here for you. The Ten Commandments that were given to Moses many years ago, are just as important today, and just as relevant today, as they were then. They are God's laws, and laws that must be followed to attain eternal salvation. Many continue to feel that these laws are outdated, but this is not so. Man has changed, and the world has changed, but God's word will never be changed. And neither must it be altered to fit the times. Man must alter His life in order to live the laws of God, and attain the peace that awaits him, through the acceptance of these laws.

Peace is not attained through the arrogance and pride of those who choose to ignore the Word of God. Peace is not found through the seeking of pleasures of the flesh in all forms. Peace is found through the acceptance of God's love. Man must repent of his sins, and accept this gift of love God has to offer. You, and others like you, are there to remind My children that God still cares. He loves all of His children. He is here to work miracles, give blessings, and aid you in your hours of need. Trust children, and know that in your burdens and hurts, God is still there for you. He has sent His only Son to the earth to show you just how much He cares. He has allowed Him to be a human sacrifice for the sins of mankind. How much more must He do to show you just how much He cares?

Be at peace, My little children, My Mother continues to bless you through Her appearances, words, and graces, that pour forth in great abundance. I, too, am speaking to, and will continue to minister, to many. Why do you suppose this is true? Because time is precious to the One Who created you. Time, My children, is running out. Man must begin to take these words being spoken, more seriously than he has ever done before. The hand of justice is about to strike, and My children must be prepared with a repentant heart. This is not said to frighten My children, it is said to bring about the change of the heart that will bring peace, no matter what the circumstances.

Those who love Me, and stay focused on Me, will have no need to fear. I love you, and wish you to repent of your sins, and obtain the peace so necessary in this world of pain and suffering. My love remains with you. Seek My peace.

Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord. I will share these words with Your people.

Jesus: Now, you must tend to your day. Do it with love and the gift of My peace.
