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 July 3, 1993, from Our Lady

Ruth Ann:  Our Lady, I feel led to speak to You this morning.  I know You speak to me daily, or whenever I need, but I don't always write it down.  Most of it seems to be of a personal nature.

Our Lady:  Yes child, as I have said, "I am here to guide you.  Jesus is to be your teacher."

Ruth Ann:  So many things that have been said to me, by You and by others, seem to be fitting together.  Maybe I am making too much of some things, but that is how it appears.

Our Lady:  Let Me address many of those things that have been of concern to you.  You will see all things will fall into place as time goes by.  You must be patient, pray, listen, and be obedient, for all things to happen that God wishes to come to fruition.

Ruth Ann:  And that is?

Our Lady:  There are some things of a personal nature that I have directed you not to do at this time.  There is a reason, child.  When the fence was removed and placed in a new area, I have told you it will be only temporary.  I want My children to have access to the entire hillside.  You did not understand, but you listened.  I also told you when you decided to find homes for all your animals in the spring, you said, "Apparently God wanted you to be rid of everything that you cared about."  I said to you at that time, "Postpone your decision until fall."

Ruth Ann:  Why have You told me these things?

Our Lady:  Child the answers will come.  Had you given all your animals away, you would not have had company this fall.  Is this not true?  At the time, you had not made a decision to take a leave from your teaching job.  Now, does that make sense to you?

Ruth Ann:  Yes, that particular message does.  But what about the others? 

Our Lady:  I have told you, there will indeed be a retreat house here.  It will be manned by retired priests.  This is so, little child, know this in your heart.  Have not all the other messages that I have given to you proven in time to be prophetic?  This too, will be so.  I have also told you the horses would be moved to another place.  Later, I have told you, you would be moving.  This will be so.  Your peace will need to be restored, and at that time you will need to move from this home.  You have had many saying they have felt that there will be a retreat house here.  Even your priest has said to you, "You have been told you will move from this place.  Why don't you turn it into a retreat house?  I am sure there are plenty of volunteers, so it could be done easily.  All it would take is a little carpentry work, and there are many volunteers good at that skill."

These things are confirmations child, but do not get ahead of yourself.  You still have growing to do, so be patient and listen.  This year is to be a year of growth and peace for you; time for you and your family, and time to pray.  The pressure has been lifted from you.  You have spoken of being too busy to pray, now God has taken care of that, child. 

Ruth Ann:  It was true, Mother.  I was feeling as though I couldn't get caught up.  My weekends were busy with prayer and talks, and Monday through Friday I was trying to teach, run errands, attend Mass, plus trying to do laundry, clean house, etc.  I had no time for my children or grandchild.  The weekends were already full.  I thank You for this respite.  I doubt I will ever get to go back to school, to teach that is.  Is that true, Mother?

Our Lady:  Child, be patient and be obedient.  You wish to know more than it is time for you to know.  Have I not told you all things would be revealed to you as you have a need?

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Mother.

Our Lady:  Then all you need to do is be patient, be attentive, and be obedient.  All that has been told you will come about.  It will be in God's time, child.  Only He can make things happen as there is a need.  All things will be placed on other's hearts.  It will all be done for you.  Do these words not sound familiar to you?  Has God not sent children to your prayer group to verify your messages?  This was at a time when you felt much had been taken away from you.  You felt you were being tested and were to go totally on faith with no confirmations.  This was true child, you listened, were obedient, and continued on in faith.  Now the confirmations will be there for you because you have trusted God when others have not.  Other blessings will be forthcoming.  Obedience is the key, child.  You must be obedient to the will of God, not to your will.  That is where many have gone wrong.  They have listened to the will of their own pride and stubborness.  They have allowed their will to interfere with the will of God.  You cannot serve oneself and God.  You must die of self and put God as number one in your life and keep Him there.  This you have done and you will be rewarded for listening and being obedient. 

Ruth Ann:  You make it all sound like it was easy and so cut and dried, Mother.  It is all difficult.  None of what I am doing is easy.

Our Lady:  God did not promise you easy.  What My Son did for men was not easy for Him or for Me.  We both realize that it was the will of the Father that He suffer and die on the cross for man's sins.  It was not easy to watch Him, My beloved Son, be persecuted, hunted down like a criminal, stripped of all of His dignity; through trial, torture, and then nailed to a cross like a common thief.  Look at the rewards for what My Son has done.  Yes, He suffered beyond belief.  But it was worth it, because without it, man could not have entered into the Kingdom.

Remember, no matter what God takes away, He gives back to you a hundredfold.  If not here, then in the life hereafter.  God expects much from you, and you give much, but the rewards will be just as great.  Remember that child, God will continue to bring little miracles into your path. 

Child, be attentive to what He has to say to you, but most of all, be obedient.  The sharing of His word, the sharing of the many miracles, are the important part of your mission at this time.  You do it well.  You do not wish to do it, but you do it well.  It is the will of the Father that you do so.  My children are hungry for these signs and miracles.  They want to know that 'yes,' God does love me.  That is the important part of what you are doing at the present time.  That has brought about all the other, child.  The Haven of Peace and Prayer, the book, the flyer, and all those who have come forth to help with this mission.  God has done it all.  He has made all things possible.  All things come to him who waits.  You have been patient and you must continue to be so.  You have much to do for God, little child, so do not grow weary.  This is only the beginning.  Your respite will bring you much peace and growth.  Thank you for listening, and thank you for being obedient.  God loves you as I love you.  I bless you.  Go forth in My Son's peace.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Mother.

 

Message of January 8, 1994, from Our Lady

Ruth Ann:  Mother Mary, again I feel I am slighting You.

Our Lady:  Child, how can you say this, when you are doing exactly what I would have you do?  You have answered My call.  I am calling all My children back to My Son.  That is My reason for coming to the earth.  You are doing the will of the Father, by listening and sharing My words and the words of My Son.

Ruth Ann:  I guess it's because I don't speak with You for long periods of time, like I used to.

Our Lady:  You are speaking with Me through the beautiful prayers of My rosary.  You are speaking to Me in your attendance at prayer groups, Mass, sharing in your talks, sharing your farm, and entire being.  All you do and say speaks to Me, child, of one who has been obedient and listened to what I have said.  You need never feel guilty because you have put My Son first.  That is what I wish, and that is the will of the Father. 

I am here for you, as I am here for all of God's children.  I wish to intercede in prayer, and I wish to call all of My children out of darkness back to My Son, who is light.  This is not an easy task, but as long as there are children such as you who listen and share what is being said, there is still hope. 

I bless you child, for listening.  Continue to be obedient.  Love My Son.  That is all I ask.  Love the One Who has lived and died and earned for you the gift of eternal life.  Love Him who has suffered much.  Love the One Who is love.  These words are for all of My children.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Mother.  Thank You for Your reassurance and consolation, and thank You for calling us all back to Your Son.

Our Lady:  Thank God for allowing Me to come.  It is His gift to you in this time of need.

 

Message of April 12, 1994,  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  I thank You Lord, for continually reassuring me in my times of weakness.

Jesus:  Little one, you have been asked to witness to the greatness and goodness that God has worked in your life.  You have been called to evangelize, and you have been doing so.  Obedience is the key, little one.  You have listened and shared the word of God to those around you.  You will continue to do so through the words spoken to you from Me and My Mother.  Because of your obedience, you will continue to experience these miracles.  You will also experience the attacks of the evil one.  Where there is good, there will be the evil one, constantly showing his ugly head through all forms of persecution.  Be not afraid.  Good always triumphs over evil, and I never send more than any of My children are able to bear.  You become discouraged and hurt, but know I am always here for you.  You are doing the will of the Father.  Know that, child. 

Now I know you must go.  I am with you, as is the love and grace you need for this day.  I commend you for your obedience and love.  I bless you for your concerns for My children.  Go in My peace.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You Lord, for Your kind words, and Your love and peace.

 

Message of April 27, 1994,  from Our Lady

Ruth Ann:  Mother, will You speak with me?

Our Lady:  Child, I am your Mother.  I am here.

Ruth Ann:  I just need to hear Your quiet, calm voice.

Our Lady:  Keep your peace.  That is most important.  Do not let the evil one cause you to lose this peace.  When My Son was preaching God's word, He would have times when He would need to come to Me, because of the lack of acceptance and uncharitable remarks made to Him.  The apostles sought the help of the Mother of Jesus many times when they would lose their peace.  Child, I am here.  God has granted Me this grace.  He has allowed Me to walk among you and minister to His children.  Come to Me.  Ask Me to assist you in regaining and retaining the peace of My Son, Jesus. 

You have an important job to do, child.  It requires much strength, energy, and trust in your God.  He would not expect so much of you if He did not think it possible for you to do these things.  Do not let those around you distract you through their lack of peace.  Listen when it is necessary, but give it all to God.  You are not to be concerned about the mechanics of this ministry, child.  You are to listen, be obedient, and share the word being told to you. 

When someone comes to you seeking prayer, pray with them.  You are not to be distracted by those who come to detain you with their concerns or the sins of others.  They are not to detain you or keep you from ministering to others.  If there are problems or concerns they wish to bring to your attention, they are to approach your husband.  He will discern their needs.  You have a specific mission at this time.  It has been told to you over and over.  Listen, be obedient and share.  Pray for those requesting prayer.  God will tend to the rest, as long as you do His will.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You Mother.  You already make me feel better.

Our Lady:  Child, tell those who come to you, you have nothing to do with the mechanics, and they have to take it up with your husband.  He can put them in touch with someone that may be able to help them.  You are not a counselor, so it is not even necessary for you to listen to the special problems of those for whom you pray.  They, those who come for prayer, need only petition God from their hearts.  They need not have their petitions said nor written to receive the graces, blessings, and healings they come seeking.  They need only hold their needs and desires in their hearts.  God knows each child's needs and will tend to it in His way and in His time.  You need only touch each person as God has asked you to do.  This is an act of obedience on your part.  In your doing so, you act as a conduit from God to each of His children.  You are an instrument being used to tend to the needs of His children.  It is their faith and trust in Him that allows Him to work great blessings and wonders in their lives. 

You are at peace, child.  Keep this peace throughout the day.  I give you My Motherly blessing and ask that you continue to minister to God's people as the need arises.  Thank you for responding to this call from Heaven.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Mother, for restoring my peace and explaining away some concerns.

Our Lady:  It has been My pleasure to help you.

 

Message of May 11, 1994,  from Our Lady

Ruth Ann:  Mother, I am full of sadness.

Our Lady:  Yes, child, I know.

Ruth Ann:  Even though we knew it had to be this way, and that it is the right thing to do, we will miss our horses.

Our Lady:  Little child, you are not to be attached to anything of this earth.

Ruth Ann:  I have been told this many times before.  I've also been told that all my animals will eventually be removed from me.  'Thy will be done'.  My heart aches, but is this the will of God?

Our Lady:  Yes, child, it is.  Your life has changed.  It is no longer your will, but God's will be done.  You will experience pain, but you will also experience peace; peace at knowing you are always obedient to the will of God, no matter how painful.  It is all part of following in the footsteps of My Son.  It is all part of the cross.  The pain purifies the soul and brings it to new heights never before experienced.  You have spoken of peaks and valleys, child.  These you will continue to experience.

Ruth Ann:  I feel there are more valleys than peaks at this time of my life, Mother.

Our Lady:  Are you sorry you have given your 'fiat'?

Ruth Ann:  Not really sorry, but I'm not sure I am capable of doing all that God has expected of me.

Our Lady:  Child, all of God's chosen instruments are capable.  The graces are always there for those who choose to do the will of God.  Man has a free will though, child, and he can choose to walk away from the work that God has in store for His children.  Many choose to do so.  You are not one of these.  God knows your heart, and He knows you will persevere to the very end of your mission.

Ruth Ann:  Then He knows something more than I do, Mother, because at times this all becomes almost too much to bear.

Our Lady:  These are the times you must call upon your Mother.  I am here whenever you have need of Me, remember.  I have told you that before.  My Jesus and your Jesus are here for you.  Do not hesitate to share those things that are burdening you.  Your Jesus loves you, just as I do.  We do not wish to have you suffer needlessly.  Certain things must be done in your life in order to prepare you for what lies ahead.  There is much more for you to do, and you must become detached from worldly things.

Ruth Ann:  As I said to You this morning, Mother, or maybe it was to Your Son, I hope that does not mean husband, children, and grand-children.

Our Lady:  Child, and you were told, they are family.  Family was and is very important in the eyes of God, so no, you will not be asked to become detached from your family.  Your family is a gift from God.  They will help you in your ministry.  You do not understand what I am saying, but it is to be so.  You will spend less and less time with them, because of God's work being the number one priority in your life, but they will always remain close to you.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Mother, for these words.  I needed to hear those words.  I was afraid God wanted them removed from me.

Our Lady:  No, child, this is not part of God's plan.  Be at peace with all that is and will be changing in your life.  God's plan is perfect.  Know you are loved and being cared for during this time.  Be obedient to His will and be patient.  All will unfold before you as God allows.  It must be done in His time and in His way, child.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Mother, I realize it, but it is still difficult for me to wait, not knowing what is to come next.  Much is happening that disturbs my peace.

Our Lady:  Yes, child, I know to what you are referring.  You were forewarned, were you not?

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Mother, I was, but it doesn't make it less difficult to handle.

Our Lady:  Continue to pray, and know all things happen for the greater honor and glory of God.  God's plan is perfect.  His children need only be obedient and follow His will and not their own.  That makes all things fall into place.  It also brings with it, peace.

Ruth Ann:  I love You, Mother.

Our Lady:  I love you, My little daughter.  Now I bless you in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Go in the peace of My Son, Jesus Christ.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Mother.

 

Message of November 8, 1994,  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, here we go again.  I have been sitting on a message I received many weeks ago.  Now it is to begin.  All things are being done that have been asked of me.  These things are not easy, Lord.  You continue to ask more and more.

Jesus:  Little one, if you did not do these things, you would not be obedient.  Without obedience, there would be no growth.  You must continue to trust and be obedient; for all things there is a reason.  Many will be able to hear you witness and be brought to the farm.  This is the desire of My Mother.  This place is a special place of peace and prayer.  Know that the graces being dispensed here will be instrumental in the saving of souls.  Many conversions will take place here, little one.  I know you do not truly understand, but this is not important that you understand.  The fact you listened and are obedient, is of great importance.  Without your willingness to follow the will of God, these things would not take place.  You must continue to be pliable.  The Lord will continue to mold you to His liking.  You are not to worry.  It will all be done for you.  You need only continue to say 'yes' to all God asks of you.

Ruth Ann:  You know, and I know Lord, each thing I do is difficult for me.

Jesus:  Your sacrifices are earning many graces, not only for you, but for others as well.  If you think of these things you do as graces for others, that should be of help to you.  You wish for My children to receive healings, and what better healing than that of the soul?  Other healings too, are made available to My children here.  But the best of all, is the spiritual healing that takes place for having come here to pray. 

My Mother is here to dispense graces to Her children at all times.  The holy angels and saints are here to also minister to My children.  You do not understand why you were called to be a part of such blessings.  But it is because of your faith, trust, and willingness to be obedient to the will of God, no matter what the cost. 

Ruth Ann:  Lord, You know I did not wish to have my picture in the paper, nor did my husband.  We do not wish to be the focus.  Your Mother has said to stay focused on You and prayer.  We have tried to do that here, Lord.  The message I was given in September, to begin witnessing at the farm weekly, really bothers me.  I don't mean in my spirit, but I didn't want to be tied to a specific time and place.  Too, I felt people would think that was pretty arrogant, to begin witnessing where I live.

Jesus:  Little one, God has a purpose for each task He puts before you.  As each task is done, more will be expected.  How do you expect to grow, if you are not asked to do these things that are difficult for you?  If you continue along, and are not to do anything beyond what you are already doing, there is no growth.  I have asked you to minister to My people.  How can you minister if you are not made visible, so they can see, hear, and pray with you?  God knows your heart, and knows you do not choose to be visible.  If your wish was to be visible, and receive recognition for all you do, then you would not be used in this way.  God wishes His servants to be humble.  He wishes for His children to realize that all gifts given, are given from Him.  You, child, know you could do nothing without the graces provided you by your Lord God.

Ruth Ann:  Not only that, Lord, I would not have chosen to do these things asked of me.

Jesus:  You have not chosen Me, I have chosen you.  It is because of your faith, humility, and desire to please Me, that you are an effective tool for Me to use, little one.  Your husband is of great support to you, this is also through the grace of God.  You were concerned about your children pulling away from you because of this last article in the paper, since it was local.  But they too, continue to have the strength and faith to support you.  Where do you suppose this strength comes from?

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I know where it all comes from.  Remember, I have given you my children and grandchildren, if You desire to take them away from me.  Everything I have is Yours, Lord.  I have nothing more to give.

Jesus:  That is where you are wrong.  You have everything to give, and it continues to be a blessing to Me, little one.  The gift of self, and all you possess, are everything to Me.  Not many are able to do this child.  Your gift is everything.   Body, mind, soul, and all you hold dear on the earth, are the greatest gifts you can give to Me.  You have come a long way, and you do not realize this.  You are awaiting My arrival, and are being prepared.  Be patient, and know that all must be in My time and in My way.  Nothing you say or do can go unnoticed by your Creator and Redeemer.  You are of great importance to Me, little one.  God loves you and is watching over you.  Be at peace with all you do.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I am at peace.  I'm just not looking forward to the witnessing, but then I didn't want the article or the picture in the paper either.  So Thy will be done, Lord.  I love You, and wish to be of help to You in any way I can.  Even if it is doing those things I find difficult.

Jesus:  I know your heart, child.  Be at peace with all that is happening in your life.  It is all part of God's plan.  Remember, His plan is perfect.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.

 

Message of Dec. 15, 1994,  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I'm having so many thoughts running through my mind.  Please quiet me now, so I can listen.

Jesus:  It is done, child.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord, and thank You for an especially beautiful prayer meeting last night.

Jesus:  Little one, it was time for these words, that were spoken last night in support of the farm, to be spoken.  God is providing many fruits through you, and your gift of time, prayer, and the farm.  Had you not said 'yes', and humbled yourself before the Throne of God, these things could not have happened.  Many hearts have been touched, and will continue to be touched, as a result of your perseverance.  You have stood firm, and have been obedient to all that has been asked of you.  Had you not, these things could not have happened that were so important to the drawing of My children closer to Me, and My Mother.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I really don't understand how things are to unravel.  Your Mother has said She will cease giving me words to share, and eventually the messages will cease.

Jesus:  That does not mean that the graces and blessings will cease to be given here, at the farm, little one.  Only the messages will cease.

Ruth Ann:  But, Lord, many come only because Your Mother is giving me words from Heaven to share.

Jesus:  Little one, you do not, and cannot, see the full picture.  There is more to come.  All you need do is be obedient and listen.  Do all that is asked of you.  God will tend to the rest.  Live each day in My love, and the love of My Mother.  You will not cease being ministered to, as you minister to others.  Be not afraid.  It will all be done for you. 

You have not sought the limelight.  You would have chosen to be in the background, quietly praying for someone else who had been chosen.  That is why you were chosen, little one.  You have so much love in your heart to give, and you wish to see all souls saved.  You have prayed, and continue to pray, for all those who have doubted your gift, and have done and said things to harm you.  Forgive your enemies.  This you have done, and will continue to do.  Love God above all else.  This too, you do, and will continue to do.  And last, but not least, you have been asked to die for your fellowman, your brothers and sisters.  This you are doing, and will continue to do. 

You are ministering to My children, just as I have asked you to do.  This is not something you could have done on your own.  You could not have foreseen this when you said your 'yes' to the will of God.  When I say 'this', I mean all that has happened to you, your family, and the lives of those whom you have touched through the sacrifices you have made. 

You have, and are, suffering through the loss of your priest.  But remember, child, My Mother has need of him.  I will deny Her nothing.  He has grown in His love for Her, and this will continue to be so.  Others will be brought closer to Her, as a result of this love that he was nurtured through you and the farm.  This was all part of the plan.  He will do great things for My Church.  Things he could not have done, had he remained here.  He will continue to grow.  You too, will experience a growth that would not have been possible, had this change not been brought about. 

 I wish for you to be totally dependent on Me, little one.  Even My Mother must decrease in the importance of My divine plan for you.  That does not mean She will not be there for you when you have need of Her.  This will always be so.  It only means that I must become your total focus.  You do not understand what I am saying to you, and you need not understand.  You need only be obedient, and continue to listen and share the words God would have you share.  As God's plan unfolds, you will understand the importance of all that is being said and done through you.  You are being emptied of everything that could possibly hold you back from growing closer and closer to Me. 

My Mother was here, and continues to be here, for you.  She has been your guide.  I am, and will continue to be, your teacher.  Much of what you have been taught, you have shared with others.  This was the purpose of the gifts given to you.  They were given to you to share with others, so they too, could grow in My love.  Many have developed a love for My Mother, that otherwise, would never have been possible.  Lives and hearts are being touched, and will continue to be touched, as you continue on in your journey of faith.  Many will not accept the authenticity of what has happened to you.  Many will wish you harm out of envy, or lack of love, for Me and My Mother.  But know in your heart, little one, those who suffer persecution for My sake, shall see the face of God, and live. 

Life eternal awaits all those who take up their cross and follow in My footsteps.  This is a promise.  This is truth.  So no matter how difficult life becomes for you and your loved ones, God has His hand upon you, and those you touch.  Be at peace, little one, and continue to love and share with all those whom My Mother sends to you.  Graces and blessings are to be had here, beyond belief.  These graces and blessings are available to all those whose lives you have touched in any way.  You have asked for this, and it shall not be denied you.  You have grown in leaps and bounds, little one, and the growing will continue.

For those who love God, and are called to His plan, all things work out for His good.  Remember that, little one.  You are only an instrument to be used for God's greater honor and glory.  As you are emptied, you will be filled with God's love.  Be at peace, and know that I am your God.  I love you beyond measure.  Bask in this love.
