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 May 29, 1991,
from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

My Dear Children,

You must realize that God loves you.  As a result of this love, He has given you many gifts.  These gifts are not for you alone, but are for all those around you.  Share your special gifts.  As a result of this sharing, you will become closer and closer to Our Lord.  Turn your lives over to God.  In so doing, you are doing His will.  You were made to know, love and serve God.  How better can you do this than by doing His will?  These special gifts given to you by the Holy Spirit are not only to help you find salvation, but are there to help you to help others to salvation.  Share your gifts.  Love one another enough to share these gifts.  As you do this, you will know God.  You will become one with Him.

 

Message of Nov. 17, 1993, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

My Dear Children,

My blessing I give to you for you are in much need of blessings and graces.  The world is full of unrest, and you being a part of the world, are experiencing the turbulence of doubt, fear, and unrest.  Dear children, it is important that you focus your mind and heart on God during these troubled times.  He is your peace and salvation.  His love is a light that radiates throughout the darkness.  My Son was sent to you as an example of light, love, peace.  He lived and died for you so that you would know what God expects of you.  Share your wealth that God has given you.  Your gifts of prayer and praise, compassion and love, are to be shared in helping all those in need.  Gifts from God are not given to keep, dear children, they are given to you to share.  I love you. Go in God's peace.

 

Message of Nov. 30, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus

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

Jesus:  Little one, do you wish to listen?

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.  Is there something in particular You'd like to tell me?

Jesus:  Only this, little one.  Know that God is pleased that you are taking the task put before you, seriously.  You are learning much by being unselfish with your time and sharing it with God and so many others.  The teachings I am sharing with you are for all of My children, so when you listen, it is as though you were in a giant assembly hall, listening to an important lecture.  The only thing is, you are the only one there taking notes, for all of My children who could not be there.  See how important it is for you to listen not only for Me but for all those who were unable to hear.  Would you have them miss a single word?  No, for you know what I am saying is of great importance.  I wish to thank you for listening little one, and for being obedient.  I am pleased you continue to listen, write, and share what is being said to you, so that those who cannot listen will know what I am saying.

I would like to talk to you about gifts, child.  So many of My children have been given special gifts and talents, and they continue to hold these gifts.  Gifts are to be shared.  They are not given to you for you alone to keep.  There are so many gifts that are going to waste, because My children think that these were given to them alone.  This is not true.  Some continue to say to themselves, "What is God's will for me?  How can I discern what it is He wishes for me to do?"  Be attentive, My children.  If you have a special gift, then know in your heart, I would have you share this gift with those around you.  I was an example for you.  I came from a very humble background, but I shared everything I had, including My life.  I expect no less from My children. 

Many of you say you have no special talent because you are not musically inclined, or artistically inclined.  That does not mean you do not have something to share.  Think of the corporal works of mercy your Jesus has stressed over and over, (visit the sick, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, bury the dead, visit the imprisoned, feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty).  These are but a few of the major concerns that need to be tended to. 

There are causes that need to be fought for, the abortion issue, to name one.  These do not take special talents, but it does take time and effort.  Time and effort that you should take so that the pain and suffering of your neighbor can find some relief.  Sometimes, giving of self is a greater gift than being blessed with a special talent.  We cannot all be gifted singers, artists, speakers, and so forth, but we can all be compassionate people who are willing to help our brothers and sisters.  It is important to know these things.  Anything you do to help the least of My children, you do unto Me.

During this Advent season, pre-paring for My humble birth, you should realize just how important these words are.  Many will not experience the warmth of a home, family.  These, the least of My children, are in need of the tender loving care and concern that comes from a love for your neighbor.  The greatest of My commandments, 'Love God and your neighbor as yourself for the love of God'.  If man would truly read and listen to what God is calling him to do in that one commandment, there would be no wars, no one without shelter, and no one hungry. 

Share your gifts and talents, children.  In some cases, it could be as simple as visiting the elderly who have no one to look out for them.  How much energy and time does it take to speak with someone lonely or needs the help of someone running an errand?  Put yourself in the place of one who is in need.  Would you not want someone to take the time to tend to your needs, or the needs of a family member?  What would your Jesus do?  If My children would ask themselves this question when they are not sure what they should do, they would never have a difficult time knowing what to do and when to do it.  Follow My example.  That is why My father sent Me to the earth, to teach My children by example what is expected of them.  The road is not easy, but once traveled, the rewards are great.  Love one another, and show this love by sharing what God has given to you.

Ruth Ann:  I will share what You have said, Lord.

Jesus:  Go in My peace, little one.  Thank you for listening and sharing My words.

 

Message of Jan. 24, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I thank You again for seeing me through another talk.  You are truly amazing.  You did it all.  Thank You, thank You, thank You!

Jesus:  You had been told it would go well and the graces and blessings would be poured out in abundance.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I could feel the power surge through me over and over, and out into the people receiving prayer.  You were magnificent!

Jesus:  Little one, each person who came to you in faith for prayer, can expect a miracle.  I gave many healings and blessings last night to My people, and I thank you, little one, for ministering to them.  I thank you for being a willing vessel and allowing yourself to be used in such a way.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, even with this peace and joy, there is sadness in my heart.

Jesus:  Yes little one, and I understand.  You do not understand why there is such a need for those such as you to minister to My people.

Ruth Ann:  No, I truly don't, Lord.  Can things really be so bad on the earth that You need such as me to boost the faith of others?

Jesus:  Yes little one, things are bad.  Many are leaving their churches.  Satan has 'done a number' on your world, little one, right under your nose.  The removal of many things that were extremely important as faith-builders in your day has caused some to pull away.  Others have been drawn away by laziness and lack of love for their God.  Subtle things have been done on the earth, causing people to lose faith, faith in their God.  Little children such as you are needed to remind your world just how far man has moved away from Me.  Many eyes are being opened as to the causes, but it is too late for man to correct his horrendous errors.  It is going to take the power of God to bring about a miraculous change in your world.

Pray, little child, that man will begin to awaken from this sleep of darkness that has covered your land, family, and even penetrated the holy places of worship.  Pray for conversions.  Be attentive to the signs, My children.  Listen to what My Mother is telling you.  Be obedient children and follow the rules set down for you by God in the Ten Commandments.  Attend Mass and receive Com-munion as frequently as possible.  Confess your sins.  Fast and do penance.  All of these are necessary to prepare you for what is to come.  Times are not going to get easier.  Much prayer is needed.  Be attentive to God's words, little one.  Continue to minister to My people.  There is a great need and hunger for the words you are sharing.  Your mission will only grow, child, because of your obedience to listen and share. 

I bless you little one.  Continue to do the will of God just as many others have done so before you.  Go in My peace to love and serve God.

 

Message of April 28, 1994,  from Our Lord Jesus

Jesus:  As your ministry grows, so will your faith and trust in Me need to grow.  Much is ahead, little one, but you will be ready.  God does not choose those who are not willing to be molded and used in whatever way He chooses.  All is in His hands, little one.  He is the divine planner.  You need only to listen, do His will, and be patient.  God's plan is perfect.  Whatever He has ahead for you has been in the making for many, many years.  The evil one will continue to come up against you and your family, but know in the end God will win.  My Mother is assisting many in order to prepare them for the work God has in store.  Minister to My people.  That is your task at the present time.  Do so with love and patience, just as I did nearly 2000 years ago. 

Be an example.  Be a role model.  So few of My children have someone to look to for an example as living and doing the will of God.  Too many look to role models of the world of darkness.  They seek out role models in the rich and famous.  There is nothing wrong with wealth.  I, too, was in need of those who have money to help with ministering to the poor and My disciples.  God will not ask you how much you have accumulated in your years on the earth, but He will ask, "What did you do with the wealth I gave you?"  Some I have allowed to have more than others.  Hopefully those who have much will share with those who have little or nothing.  I have tried to be an example to My children so that they would have a role model to emulate.  Those who have paid little attention to My example have not learned to share in love, wealth, time, and talent.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I really am not talented, so all I have is what You have given me.

Jesus:  Little one, all of My children have a special talent.  Yours are many.  You seek to do the Will of God, you pray with My children, and you share your home, your time, and your life with others.

Ruth Ann:  I was thinking in terms of artistic or musical talent, Lord. 

Jesus:  Little one, each one has been blessed in some way.  You need not be blessed with all talents.  Those who have the talents needed to make the farm grow and be fruitful will continue to be sent to you.  They will tend to the farm, the grounds, and the buildings.  All your needs will be tended to because you have sought to do the will of God.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord.

Jesus:  I know you have much to do today.  Go in My peace.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You for Your beautiful words, Lord.

 

Message of October 5, 1994,  from Our Lady
(After Prayer Group Message)

Ruth Ann:  Mother, do You wish to add anything concerning the messages?  Or anything else, for that matter?

Our Lady:  Child, I will speak with you, if that is your desire.

Ruth Ann:  It is, Mother.

Our Lady:  You are concerned for your youngest child.  She is due to have her child, and is ill.  Know that all will be well.  She will be over her illness before her time has come to deliver her little one.  Be at peace with this.  God is to tend to your children, just as He has said.  There will be little bumps, but no hills or mountains along this journey.  As long as you are obedient, how can He not tend to your needs?  He has said He would tend to all your needs.  Is this not a need?

Ruth Ann:  Yes Mother, it is a great need.  My husband, children, and grandchildren are all I really have.

Our Lady:  Child, this is an exaggeration, but you have made your point.  However, My Son has said to you, "Who are your brothers, sisters, and Mother?  It is those who have heard the word of God and live it."  You have many brothers, sisters, and Mothers.  Those who come to the farm with the same desire to please and serve God, are your family.  Those who pray with you and for you, these are your family.  So you have been given a huge family that continues to grow.  Be at peace with this, child.

The messages given to you for My children are to encourage them as they live in these difficult times.  They are your brothers and sisters, and yes, each one of you is your brother's keeper.  This means you cannot turn your back on those who are in need.  God's children are in need, both physically, and spirit-ually.  I am counting on those of you who truly care, to be of assistance to Me, to help pray for all the needs of My children.  There are many who still have not realized the importance of prayer.  There are those who are grasping in the darkness, searching for meaning to their very existence, that becomes more and more difficult.  There are those searching for a reason to live, and wanting to believe there is something more after death.

You must help Me help them who are without hope.  By your prayers and example, and by assisting those who are in need, you can light a fire of hope and trust that did not exist.  My children are in grave danger of losing their immortal souls, and it is imperative, as their brothers and sisters, that you help them rekindle this faith lost to many of them.  Show them God does care.  His love and mercy awaits each one.  Be at peace with one another, encourage one another, assist one another.  God desires this of each one of you.

 

Message of January 4, 1995, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

My Dear Children,

As your Mother, I am here to be of help to you in any way you need.  God loves you, and because of this love, He continues to find ways to touch you in a special way.  Each one of you has been given a special gift.  These gifts are not for you to keep, nor hide under a bushel.  They are there for you to share.  Just as a light is extinguished if it is covered, so too, are your gifts.  In sharing your gifts with others, they are not only kept glowing, but they continue to grow and burst into a giant flame, to warm the hearts of all those with whom you share.  Share your gifts so God's love and peace will radiate to those around you.  Pray, little children.  Accept the challenge I am giving to you, so that others may experience God's peace, and the beauty of God's gifts given to you to share.

 

Message of January 4, 1995, from Our Lady
(After Prayer Group Message)

Ruth Ann:  Mother, that was not at all what I would have expected, 'share your gifts'.

Our Lady:  Little child, do you not realize that this message is to encourage all those who continually refuse to share the many gifts that God has given them?  You, of all people, should realize the importance of this sharing, and you also should realize the difficulty in sharing.  Does your sharing get any easier for you?

Ruth Ann:  No Mother, it doesn't.

Our Lady:  There are many times you would like to forget that God has ever given you this special gift.  You have been allowed to experience the special gift of hearing voices from Heaven, and yet, rather than share, you would like to forget this has ever happened to you.  You would prefer not to share these words with others.  Only they were not given just for you.  If that had been the case, they would never have been given.  Gifts are given to share, so that others too, may grow in God's love.  In sharing your gifts, hearts are touched and brought closer to God.  Any time a gift of love is shared with someone, whether it be a kindness of word or deed, good will come from it.

Love one another, children.  I know this is difficult for some of you, because many of you have been hurt by others.  Allow God to use this hurt to the betterment of mankind.  You still do not realize that God can take the bad things that have happened in your life, and use them for His greater honor and glory.  You must be patient, and watch this be done.  It will be done, little children, in His way, and in His time.  God has a way of out-giving and out-blessing each of His children.  Those who remain faithful, and faith-filled, will not be abandoned.  God loves you, and through this love, wants to show you just how much He cares for you, and all your needs.

Trust, little children, and know that God is watching over each one of you.  He has not, and will not, abandon you.  I am your Mother, sent here to draw you back to, and closer to, the gift He has given to you, of His only Son.  If he loves you so much as to sacrifice His Son for you, would He abandon you in your hours of need?  This would never be.  Know that God loves you, and wishes you to be at peace with all that has happened, and will continue to happen in your life.

Ruth Ann:  Mother, I am having a difficult time with this right now.  My Pastor, spiritual director, and friend, has been removed from our church.  How can I be at peace when I feel like my insides have been ripped out?  This has been done with so much cruelty, that it is difficult for those who love him.

Our Lady:  Child, it has been difficult for him also.  Have you not stood by and watched how well he has handled this cross?  Have you not learned anything from him in this hurt that he suffers?  You speak of your hurt, and your pain.  What of his hurt, and his pain?  His life has been turned upside down, too, child.  And after his studies in the Holy Land, he does not know where God will lead him.  And God will lead him, because of his great strength and trust. 

Trust, child, trust is what you must remember.  It is true, you are experiencing change in your life, and you are not comfortable with change.  But how can one grow without it?  Be at peace, child, and know that in God's wisdom and mercy, there is a reason and a plan.  Learn from the example of your priest.  Trust that God will tend to all things.  Through pain, suffering, and tears, comes a healing and a strength that had not been there before.  Trust, child, and let God tend to all your hurts and needs. 

Great blessings are in store for you and your priest.  A door is never closed without another being opened.  As this door is closed, so too, will another door be opened.  God will not be outdone in His gifts for those who love Him.  Be at peace little one, and know that God loves you.  I am your Mother, and I am praying with you for all your needs.  Dry your tears.  Great blessings await you.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Mother, for being here to encourage me, and all those who are hurting over the loss of our priest.

 

Message of January 10, 1995, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, do You have encouraging words today?

Jesus:  Little one, each of My children is in need of encouraging words from time to time.  You do realize, the more you try to be like Me, the more the evil one will try to convince you of your unworthiness to minister to My children.  The evil one continues to torment those of you trying to do the will of God.  That is because he is the father of lies.  He wishes to cause doubt and turmoil in the lives of all God's children.  It is not just My chosen ones that he continues to harass, but all those who wish to do the will of My Father in Heaven.

Be at peace, little one, you are being granted a respite, and you should be grateful.  Instead, you fret because you are afraid you have offended Me in some way, and that is why you are not busy doing more than I would have you do.  The Lord has work for you to do.  Remember, this is the third weekend of the month, which means you will be very busy this weekend.

Ruth Ann:  But, Lord, the groups are very small.

Jesus:  You expected even fewer, did you not?

Ruth Ann:  Yes Lord, due to the winter storm that morning, I really expected no one.

Jesus:  I have told you, those whom God wishes to be here, will be here.  It matters not the weather.  You have also been told that numbers mean nothing.  It is who is touched that is important.  Those who are touched, will in turn touch others, through their witnessing.  That is the way God works.  You are only an instrument, child.  You can do nothing without Me.  So, know that the words spoken to you, and the people sent to you, are truly from Me.  I will do all things for those willing to follow in My footsteps.  You continue to be obedient in all things. 

When I walked on the earth, I spoke the Word of the Father.  Those who were to hear, had their ears opened.  Those who were to see the miracles I performed, had their eyes opened.  Those who were to be touched, took what was said to them to their heart.  From that point on, their lives were changed.  All you are asked to do, little one, is to share, and be a beacon of light for those struggling in darkness.  Remember, if life becomes difficult for you, how must it be for many of My children who do not have access to hearing My words. 

You have a special gift.  You can speak to Me whenever you choose.  You have access to the heavenly words of My Mother, the Holy Spirit, and God the Father.  Be not afraid, little one, the words you are asked to share are here to give peace and hope to those of My children in need of this hope.  All of My children struggle in some way, and yet those who love Me, continue to seek ways and means of staying on My path, no matter how difficult.  These words given to you out of love, are there for you, but they are also there for all My children in need. 

You are not to worry about tomorrow.  Live each day in the fullness of God's love.  He wishes you to have peace, and He wishes this peace to radiate to all those who come in contact with you.  Your ministry is far from over, little one.  Do not doubt the goodness and greatness of God's mercy.  He has granted you miracles, and He has given you special gifts.  These miracles and gifts are for you to share. 

My Mother speaks of sharing one's gifts with others, in your message for prayer group this week.  You did not understand the significance at the time, but later you came to know why the gifts that are given, are for you to share.  The feast of the Epiphany, and the homilies surrounding that feast, reinforce the messages given to you by My Mother.  You had doubts as to why such a message was given, but once again, God has shown you, that as long as you listen, and are obedient to His will, He will reinforce all you do, so you know that He is present in the words you share with others.  All of My children are to share their gifts with others.  No matter what the gift, it should be shared.  Those who do acts of kindness to others, are exercising the gift of charity.  The gifts need not be great.  Not all of My children can be musicians, or great listeners, but anything done out of the love of God, or shared out of love for Him, can be a gift to be given to others.  It is not the gift, but what one does with that gift that is important. 

That, child, is why you are asked to share those things that God has done in your life.  That is why you are asked to share the words spoken to you, and that is why you are to pray with those who come to you seeking prayer.  Those gifts have been given to you to share.  Be an example for those of My children who are unable to brave the storm of darkness that surrounds them.  If they see you do those things you find most difficult to do, they will find strength and trust in their God, to have the desire to share with others their gifts. 

You had lost your peace before speaking with Me, had you not?

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord, I had.

Jesus:  Now it has been restored.  This is My gift to you, for listening and sharing these words I have spoken to you.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord, for returning my peace.

Jesus:  Child, you need not lose it.  Trust in Me.  Do not let the doubts and fears of tomorrow, darken the light of today.  Be at peace, little one, living this day, and the respite being given to you.  More is to come.

 

Message of Feb. 19, 1995,  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I am truly anxious to go to the Holy Land.  Hopefully, we will have more time for prayer and quiet time than we had last year.

Jesus:  Little one, you have expressed that desire as you left the Holy Land, now it has been arranged.  Other special graces await you on your return trip to the land of My Birth, Death, and Resurrection.   All things happen for a reason.  Nothing is done by chance.  There is a reason for your return trip.  It is all part of the plan.  As God's plan unfolds, you will be more and more aware of the 'big picture'.  Be patient, little one, know all these things said in prophecy, are to be fulfilled.  In God's time, and in God's way, all things will be made known to you.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord.
Jesus:  Little one, be at peace with all you are called to do.  You have been told change was to be the word that was to dominate your life at this time, and it is change you are experiencing.  You have been asked to leave your Wednesday prayer group and St. Charles Church, and change your membership to another church.  These things you have done.  You are not to concern yourself with the things of the earth.  You are to stay focused on Me.  You are being molded by many changes that are taking place in your world.  You are being asked to accept these changes with peace and love in your heart.  God's plan is perfect, little one.  More is to come, and you must be ready for all that is to be revealed to you. 

Soon the words I speak to you, to share, will be removed from My Children.  This too, will be for a reason.  You will witness in a new way, and therefore, the weekly testimony will also, be removed.  You have been told this many times.  And now it is time to share these words with those who are listening, so they will be ready when the time comes for these words from Heaven to cease.  You are not being told these things to frighten or cause alarm for My children. 

The prayer on the farm will increase, little one.  It will grow in leaps and bounds.  The words from My Mother have ceased, and still She continues to draw others here to prayer.  Many come to hear your witness of God's love and mercy, to one such as you.  I know you find this witnessing extremely difficult, child.  But it has been instrumental in drawing many here to receive the graces God wishes them to be given. 

The 'laying on of hands' has been another gift you have received, and have been asked to share with God's children.  The gift of healing is not a gift to be taken lightly, little one.  It is a gift for My children.  It was given to you to share.  What good is a gift if it is kept hidden?  Gifts are not to be kept under a bushel, but are to be brought out into the light for all to share.  I thank you for being obedient, and sharing this gift. 

I thank you for finally being able to pray for those who ask for prayer, without feeling hurt if they do not get the healing they seek.  You finally have come to realize that I will give each of My children what they need.  You are to let go of their pain and suffering, and know with their faith, I can work in their lives, just as I have worked in yours. 

Many of the tasks you have performed have been difficult and humiliating for you, but you have continued on.  Your faith, trust, and obedience are truly a beauty to behold.  Continue on, little one.  Your ministry is about to undergo another change, but know you are ready.  I have prepared you, and you have been prepared well.  You have been obedient, and receptive to the will of God.  You have done all the small tasks set before you.  Now, you are about to do even greater things.  Know My Mother and I will be with you at all times. 

You are at peace, and this peace is not to be removed from you.  The struggle is almost over, little one, and now you are to bask in the love and peace that is of God.  You will have much to suffer as time goes on, little one, but the peace that will come with this attachment to God Himself will never, never leave you.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord, for these words.  Thy will be done, Lord.
