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 December 9, 1993 from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann: Lord, it's another busy day. This time of year it seems there is so much to do.

Jesus: Man has caused much of this, little one. The celebration of My birth has become an excuse for spending money. Christmas has become a time of commercialism. Whatever happened to the days when My children prepared for the celebration of My birth through prayer? The true meaning of Christ-mas has gone by the wayside. More and more people are so busy purchasing gifts, they do not have time to think, or quietly pray. Peace will be lost because of all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. I will be all but forgotten.

Ruth Ann: Lord, many of us still believe in the true meaning of Christmas.

Jesus: Little one, your world is so small, you think in terms of family, prayer groups, and your church. I am looking at the entire world, little one, and know many of My children will not even observe My Birthday, My First Coming, by attending Mass or church services. Many will not even say a prayer of thanksgiving to God for sending Me to the earth as their Redeeming Savior. Many will not even thank My Mother for saying 'yes', to being My Mother. This is nothing new, though, little one. Why should I expect My children to acknowledge Me on special occa-sions, when I am ignored most days of the year unless they have a need? Then, I am found quickly, and not necessarily asked, but told, what needs to be done and when it needs to be done. Even when I am able to accommodate them, do they thank Me? No. I don't hear from many of them again until they are in need again.

Oh, if only My children would learn to love Me! I love so much, I gave so much, I continue to give so much. Why can't My children slow down and realize all they are, have, and ever will be depends on God, not man? The Lord gives, and He can take away, all of it, in the blink of an eye. Man should give thanks for all things.

Ruth Ann: Lord, You are really sounding 'down' today.

Jesus: Not 'down,' little one, but I am sad. Man has taken a joyous season and turned it into something that is not of Me. Pray, My children, that man will wake up before it is too late, and realize that 'things' do not bring happiness. Love, peace, and truth are the essential ingredients in a world of noise and grief of all kinds. Concentrate on the peace and love of this holy and very special time of the year. Be as the innocent shep-herds tending their sheep. Come to Me, leaving the gifts of your love.

Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord. I love You.

Jesus: Thank you, little one, and thanks to all those who have not forgotten the true meaning of Christmas.

Ruth Ann: Lord, will You speak more with me later?

Jesus: Little one, that was really all I wish to say today. You have much to do. Go about your day knowing My love is with you.

Ruth Ann: Lord, mine is with You, also.

Message of Dec. 17, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann: Jesus, is there anything in particular You wish to speak to me about today?

Jesus: You are being overwhelmed by all you have to do today. Are you sure you wish to listen?

Ruth Ann: I need Your peace, Lord.

Jesus: Then listen. All those things you need to do will be accomplished. Put Me first, and all things will fall into place.

Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.

Jesus: Many forget that, especially during the holidays when man has filled every minute of his waking hours with tasks that have nothing to do with his spiritual life.

This is a beautiful time of year, but man has turned it into a time of stress and frustration. There is so much that can be learned by reflecting on this holy season, this time set aside to prepare for the celebration of the birth of the One Who came to save man from his sins and eternal damnation. The One Who was, is, and is to come, has been shoved aside for commer-cialism.

What has happened to My children? How far man has strayed from the path! But where there is life, there is hope. Those of you who pray and realize the true meaning of the Advent Season, continue to pray and reflect on what all your Lord and Savior has done for you. Meditate on the gift of My Mother and Her 'yes' to the will of God. You too, can say 'yes' to His will, and help change a world hidden in darkness. Through prayer and example, you can bring My children into light.

Witness to the greatness and glory of the One Who has saved you from your sins. Share with those who have no hope for the gift of salvation. Help them realize that I came to the earth to save man from His sins. I came to conquer death, death of a physical nature, and death of a spiritual nature. That means all My children have the hope of eternal life. What a special gift that has been given to all those on the earth! My Father in Heaven has given all of His children the gift of light, life, and peace, both physical and spiritual, and they do not take time to acknowledge that great gift that only He could give.

Some will go to Christmas Mass and say, "Oh, how beautiful," but then, that will be the end. Others will be too busy to even work Mass into their schedules. Man is concerned he cannot find peace. He looks for it in material things: alcohol, sex, the blaring sounds of distractions, and many, many other distractions. Peace comes from Me. I am peace. I am the One Who has brought that gift into the world by My birth.

Reflect on what I have said, children. Realize that peace is at your fingertips. Put Me first, and all other things will fall into place. My Mother, with Her simple 'Fiat', has given a gift to the world never before given. She gave physical life to God, so He could come to the earth to bring peace, love, joy, and hope of a life eternal, to a world in darkness. My children need to be awakened to the gift of this great miracle. They need to realize that it was through the greatness of God's mercy that they are given a chance at rebirth.

It is time for My children to know this, and keep it in their hearts. It is not just enough to say, "Oh, I know all about that." One must take all of these things to their heart. Take all of these things to your heart throughout this season and the days thereafter. Keep them in your heart. Let them change your life so that you, too, will be able to say your 'yes' to the will of My Father. That is what He is asking of you throughout this season. His gift to you of the holy family is His example of faith, love, and trust in Him. Join Mary, My Mother, Joseph, My earthly father, and My-self, your Jesus, in this holy season, this time, an opportunity for renewal, and say 'yes' to your God and Savior, and 'no' to the things of the flesh. Die of self, repent of your sins. The Kingdom of God is close at hand. Make straight the way of the Lord, and bring true conversion into your life.

Ruth Ann: That sounds easy, Lord, but every year the season gets more and more hectic for everyone.

Jesus: That is the choice of those who do not put Me first. Be at peace, little one. Know I am God, and have come to the earth to save mankind from the world of darkness. God's will, will be done.

Ruth Ann: I am at peace, Lord. I'm glad I took the time this morning to listen.

Jesus: I, too, am pleased, little one. Your day will be blessed with My gift of peace.

Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.

Message of Dec. 23, 1993, from Our Lady

Ruth Ann: Mother Mary, will You speak with me?

Our Lady: Child, I am here.

Ruth Ann: I am sorry, I haven't written down many of the things You have spoken to me about, but thank You for talking with me when I need to hear you.

Our Lady: Child, I have said I am always here for you, and if you do not have the time to speak with Me and write what I am saying, I would prefer you speak with My Son and write and share what He tells you.

Ruth Ann: That is what I have done, but then I feel I am slighting You.

Our Lady: Child, My purpose in coming to all My children in locutions, apparitions, visions, the smell of roses, is to draw you all closer to My Son. Those who have great devotion to Me are loved much by My Son. I am being allowed to come among you in order to strengthen and guide you in these difficult times. I am here to provide graces for you for the difficulties that lie ahead.

Man is aware that the earth is in great turmoil. This is not news that is a surprise to you. The world is such that only God can provide the miracles needed to 'clean up the mess' that man has made. That is why I am calling My children to prayer, over and over. That is why I am asking you to make sacrifices, offer up the crosses of your daily lives to God, consecrate yourselves to Me and My Son. God can do all things, but man must ask for the needs he wishes God to provide. Ask, and you shall receive. The desire to do the will of God in all things must be taken to heart.

During this season of love and peace, I am seeing more and more stress and sadness in My children. The turmoil that surrounds you, your families, and your world is overwhelming to many of you. The evil one is strong in the present days as never before. He has taken you away from the peace you need to prepare for His coming, the God of peace. I am calling you back from the distractions provided to you by the evil one. I am here to return you to the peace and love of this special season. Focus on My Son, the God of peace, and all other things will become clearer to you. Listen and be aware of what God is telling you through the messages being provided to those of My children who are listening and being told to share.

There is a reason for My being here and walking freely among My children. Realize that God has felt it necessary to send Me to call you back to His ways. He wishes His children to return to the ways of God, and turn away from the ways of the world. For many of you, ingrained in materialism, this is quite difficult. For you who have become addicted to TV, and noise, and distractions of all kinds, I am telling you, set aside 'quiet time' for My Son. Turn off all the means of noise in your homes, offices, and vehicles for a few minutes each day, and listen to the gifts of the world around you that God has provided for you.

Listen to the quiet. Know that God is with you, wanting to reveal Himself in this peace. Listen with your heart, and know He wishes to speak to you and provide you with the direction in your life that will take you out of darkness. Listen, and be aware of His presence.

Old habits are difficult to give up, but addictions of all kinds can be overcome through prayer and the grace of God. Man, through his addictions, has turned his back on God, whether these addictions be work, sports, food, drink, noise, or those of a sexual nature. It does not matter what the cause. Man, through his own selfish desires, has turned to things of the world in excess, to block out the goodness, light, and love of his Creator. It is time to turn from the ways of darkness and turn to light. Pray for God's love and mercy and the grace to be able to do so. Love My Son, listen to My words. I am here to help you. Pray, dear children, pray.

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

Our Lady: Child, I am always here for you, but if you have a choice to make, My Son must come first. In loving My Son and doing His will, it pleases Me greatly. I love you, child. Go in the peace of My Son, Jesus.

Ruth Ann: Mother, help me share the peace with others today.

Our Lady: Child, the graces are provided by asking.

Message of Dec. 25, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann: Happy Birthday, Jesus!

Jesus: Thank you, little one. Not many will remember to tell Me that. Not many will remember the real reason for this day and the events in history that My birth brought into play, for without My birth, there could have been no passion and death. There could have been no resurrection. Man could and would not have a chance at eternal salvation the he has today. It took the birth of a tiny baby to bring all these events about. Now, little one, it is up to man to realize those truths and accept them so he can have the peace and love of His Creator. That is the only real peace. That is the only important peace.

Ruth Ann: Do You really think that will happen Lord? Do You really think Your children will ever really realize that all the externals are not important, only the spiritual is truly important?

Jesus: Little one, this has been a struggle for My children since man was created. It has only continued to become worse as man has become more and more knowledgeable. He has looked for easier and better ways of doing things. This is good, but he must remember where his knowledge to create and make better has come from. Man seems to think he is so brilliant he can do all things. Man has forgotten some important facts in all of his pride. Where did he come from? Why is he here? Who created him? There is so much My children forget, but soon they will be reminded of all these things. God continues to try to prepare His children for His Son's Second Coming.

In doing so, He has sent His Mother to minister to His children all over the world. She is calling all of you back to the right path, and She will continue to do so until She is no longer allowed. Many of you are listening and taking Her words seriously. Many of you are sharing the many miracles and graces that have changed your lives. Through the generosity of your faith and trust in God, and your love for your brothers and sisters, you are ministering to each other to boost each other's faith. The words, gifts, and messages are to be shared. That is how My children who struggle in the darkness, looking for a reason to believe in something, will be brought into the light.

Each seed planted has an opportunity to grow. If the seed is not planted, it cannot grow. Seeds must be planted, and it is through those such as you who are responsible for planting many seeds. Many of My children no longer go to church to listen to the word of God through My priests. How can they receive the words and Sacraments and graces they need to survive in a world covered with darkness? They are being touched and brought back by those of My children chosen by My Mother and Me to witness to the goodness of God. They are being touched by the love and blessings God has shown you, and by your example, being brought back into the churches to receive the word of truth, light, and life. Places and people are being used all over the world as a means of grace for My children. Lives are being touched, little one.

Continue to be obedient. Continue to listen and share what is being said to you. God loves His children, even those who have turned their back on Him. They need only to repent and come back to Him. He is waiting with open arms to receive them, just as the world waited with open arms for My birth. If they only knew then, what they know now, much suffering would have been spared for all. But even then, man turned his back on an event that was to bring about a change for the entire world. How hard are the hearts of My children? Pray for them, child. Pray for the hearts of all those who are in need of a true conversion. Pray that many be touched through-out this season and be brought back to the true meaning of life, the gift of love which is Jesus Christ, His birth, death, and best of all, His resurrection, your gift of light, love, and peace eternal.

Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord, for these words. Too, thanks to Mary and Joseph for being obedient servants of God so all these events could take place.

Jesus: They listened and were obedient, little one. You, too, must do the same.

Ruth Ann: With Your help, all things are possible, Lord.

Jesus: Go in My peace. Enjoy this special day with your family and friends. Thank you for putting Me first. Love all My children.

Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.

Message of Dec. 12, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann: Lord, I am in desperate need.

Jesus: Little one, you are under attack.

Ruth Ann: I realize that, Lord, but that doesn't make how I am feeling any easier.

Jesus: Little one, repeat My name over and over, and your peace will be restored.

Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord. I am feeling better.

Jesus: Such a simple act of faith, but there is power in My name. The demons flee, and your peace is returned. This time of year is most difficult. There are too many activities, too close together. This should be a time of reflection and preparation for My coming. But instead, it has become a time of stress for so many of My children. Peace, little one, peace is the word you should hold to your heart. Just as the angel announced My birth with the word 'peace.' So I say to you this day, that peace is needed in the hearts to herald in My Second Coming.

Ruth Ann: How did we get off on that, Lord? I'm concerned about just getting through each day, and each week. I don't want to think about Your Second Coming. Why have You brought that up?

Jesus: Because, child, the pain, the attacks, the lack of peace you continue to feel, are all connected to My Second Coming. You do not think I would be putting you, and others of My children, through so much, if I were not wanting to use you in a special way? It is to save souls, child. Your witnessing, your prayers, your persecution, is all part of helping Me save souls. So few of My children are willing to give up their lives for Me, that when I do find someone willing to do so, I must place them in the fire of purification.

No one knows the pain you suffer in your heart for others. No one knows how much you have given of yourself to your Jesus. These are all part of your gift to Me for the salvation of souls. You care not about yourself.

Ruth Ann: You are being generous, Lord. I get so frustrated, I just want to get on with it, Lord.

Jesus: Soon, child, soon. You do not wish to push ahead until God is ready. You may feel ready, but it is not yet ready for His plan to unfold. Continue to pray, and be patient, and know I am with you.

Ruth Ann: Lord, I wish to thank You for all of Mary's Children, and all the prayerful people You have sent into our lives. I have had so much removed from me, that it is touching to have the support of those who truly love You and Your Mother.

Jesus: 'Child, it will all be done for you'. These were not just words. My Mother meant every word. She will continue to send those needed, to get all things done that must be done, in order for God's plan to unfold. The prayers, the support, all that is needed will be provided. You need only listen, and be obedient.

Ruth Ann: This becomes more and more difficult, as more is expected of me. Your Mother has told me She is going to stop giving messages to share. You do know that, Lord.

Jesus: Yes, little one, this is true. There is a reason for this. She has said all that needs to be said. That is not the only reason. Her purpose for working in your life, was to draw the attention of many, to Me. You have been brought along gradually, as have those who have followed My Mother's messages to Her children. Now, it is time for Her to step aside and let Me be the focus. She has pointed the way to the light in this world of darkness. She has taken the hands of many, and walked them back to the light and the right path. Now it is time for Me to finish the task She has begun.

Ruth Ann: Lord, this makes no sense to me.

Jesus: Little one, it need not. You are not asked to understand. Be patient, and watch God's plan unfold. You are experiencing much unrest. You are under constant attack. Know it is because the time is nearing for My coming to you. The evil one would like nothing more than to destroy you, and God's plan for you, at this time. You must continue to be patient, and know that many prayers are being said on your behalf. All things will unfold as God intends. You have said 'yes', and God knows your 'yes' means 'yes'. God is with you, as is the love of those in Heaven awaiting the special gift that is to be given to you.

The gift of My appearance to you, and the special gift I will bring with Me, this gift, is the gift of My divine love, and is being given to you to draw others closer to Me, Who is deserving of mankind's love and respect. You are a willing vessel, and have been emptied of all earthly desires, in order that you be filled with all God has to give in spiritual gifts. You feel that total void at this time, do you not?

Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, I have given You everything. I have very little left to give.

Jesus: Total submission is all God needs, child. Now He can do with you what needs to be done. Be patient and listen. Time is nearing. God loves you beyond measure. Go in My peace.

Message of Dec. 21, 1994, from Our Lady
(After Prayer Group Message)

Ruth Ann: Mother, is there anything You wish to add?

Our Lady: Child, during this Advent season, many draw away from My Son through their 'busyness'. They have forgotten the true meaning of the Christmas season. This should be a time of letting go of the things that take them away from the central focus of their life, and instead, they are accumulating more and more, of the very distractions they need to discard. That is because My children have become 'worldly'. They do not choose to accumulate what is most important. Love and peace have become nearly non-existent in your world.

Many speak of being stressed out, or confused. My Son comes bringing peace. There is no room in your life for those things that are not of Him. All things in moderation. God recognizes the fact you must work. And He knows you have needs that must be tended to. He also realizes you must find time to rest. There must be a balance in your life. In your quiet time set aside each day, even if it is only a brief moment, let Him know you love Him. He gets so little attention in a busy world caught up in all those things that distract, and detract from His love and goodness. The more man accum-ulates, the more man wants. It is like an addiction.

Seek first God's love and peace, and all other things will become less important to you. Prioritize your lives, little children, and in doing so you will find this peace you seek. God loves you, and I love you. Go in His peace.

Message of Dec. 25, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann: Lord, this is Your birthday. Happy Birthday!

Jesus: Little one, yes, this day will be one of joy for many who know the true meaning of Christmas. That will be the special part of this day for Me, seeing those who truly know why this day is special, celebrate it in the love of their Jesus.

Ruth Ann: Many go to church today for this very reason, Lord.

Jesus: Many do not. Those are the ones that are of concern to Me. Those are the ones that were of concern to Me nearly two thousand years ago, and they are still the ones who have made My suffering and death on the cross so painful.

Those of you who love Me, and will take the time to be with Me, are of great comfort, but you must pray for those who do not love Me, and ignore Me. They not only will ignore Me on My birthday, but all year long. They turn their backs on Me. They seek the peace and love that should come from Me, from things. This will continue until all things are removed from them.

Ruth Ann: Lord, that is a strange statement, 'until all things are removed from them'.

Jesus: Little one, it is not a strange statement. It is a statement con-cerning the state of your world. All around you, in other countries, you see devastation brought on by man's greed and lust for power. You see the world being destroyed because of hatred for one another. The innocent suffer, as well as the guilty, and still the hatred continues.

Your world is going to experience devastation too, child, and it is through those who choose to ignore all the signs that have been put before them. My Mother has told you, "You were only a footstep away from the war and depravation of other nations," and yet, man continues on the road to destruction. He is destroying your world, little by little, through the lack of care and proper treatment of all of the gifts God has given to you, little one. Little by little, your world is being destroyed. Greed, lust, and arro-gance, continue to be more important in your world, than the love and care of all that is holy. The love of God and neighbor are no longer important, little one. Through this lack of love, animals, land, water, and air are being polluted and killed. These are all God's gifts to you, and man continually destroys through his selfish desires. 'More and bigger', have been the order of the day, instead of being satisfied with only those things necessary for the good of your soul.

God has sent you the gift of His Son in human form, in order to tell you, and show you, what is and should be, important. His word was ignored, and He was murdered. He has sent His Mother, and His words through Her, and She is being ignored and blasphemed. How much more is God supposed to take, little one? He is disgusted, little one. He is disgusted with mankind and his evil ways. Man is destroy-ing himself little by little, and all that surrounds him. This is sad, but true, child, and even the words given to His children from Heaven are not changing the hearts of those who are in need of this change.

It is up to those of you who have been listening, to continue to gather for prayer in great numbers, in order to show God that you do care about Him and His children. You care about His love and His gifts to you in the form of the land, the water, and the very air you breathe. You need to let Him know you love all He has created, and wish to thank Him for all these special gifts, through the proper treatment of these gifts. Man must respect God, and the gifts given to him from God. He must respect life, and hold all things that come from Him as sacred and holy.

Ruth Ann: Lord, this message is not what I would have expected on Christmas morning.

Jesus: Little one, these words are necessary. This is a solemn time in your world. Many are caught up in greed and materialism. Today means 'presents', and more and more of the things and distractions that have taken them away from the quiet time they could, and should, be spending with Me in prayer. Man is getting farther and farther away from Me. I am here. I am here, just as I was nearly two thousand years ago, but man is not listening to Me. He is not spending quiet time with Me daily, in order to hear what I have to say. He is too busy with other things to listen.

I speak to My children through signs, nature, the gift of My word in the Bible, and through the mouth of others trained in the gift of My word. But man continues to find ways to ignore these words. Because they do not hear My voice in human terms, they choose to believe I cannot, and am not, speaking to them. They are not listening. If they were to listen, they would hear Me. Then, they would have to change their lives. Many would discover all of the things they hold sacred are of little importance.

It is the soul that is of great importance, and it is being ignored and left to die, in many cases. The soul needs food, and it needs nurtured, just as a hungry body needs food to be sustained. Many of you feed your bodies, and ignore the food for your soul. The food for your soul is the word of God. Man must feed his soul through the gift of this word. And through this food, he will realize the need for change in his earthly life. The spiritual life has been ignored, and that is why, little one, the world is being destroyed through the lack of love and care for God, His gifts, and the love of his neighbor. Man is destroying himself and his world. Pray for the conversions of My children, and ask for God's mercy for those who continue to blatantly turn their backs on Him.

Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.

Jesus: Now, I know you must be about your day. I thank you for your love, and I thank you for your continued fidelity to God's plan for you. Know God is pleased, little one, with all you are doing. Thank you for wishing Me a Happy Birthday. Many will forget, but those who remember, please Me.
