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 21, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Jesus.

Jesus:  Yes, little one.

Ruth Ann:  I have been so busy with so many prayers for others, I have had little time to listen and record.

Jesus:  Child, do not feel bad about this.  You have ministered to My children.  That has been your number one priority, and that is what I would have you do. 

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I've had no time for 'me' for over a week now.  The phone continues to ring.  I cannot step outside my door without someone needing prayer.  It is getting extremely difficult to have time for me or my family.

Jesus:  You will be given respites, little one.  God will not overload you.

Ruth Ann:  I had thought I would have time with my family this summer, but we've only gotten together two or three times. 
 
Jesus:  Yes child, your Jesus knows this.  This is to be, little one.  So many of My children are hurting, and need prayer.  They also need the encouragement of your faith and trust in Me.  How else would those who stumble around in the darkness be able to come to the light of their Jesus, without the helping hand of one who has witness of the greatness of God?  You are one of those child, one who can witness of the greatness of God's love and mercy.  You were pulled out of a life of darkness into the world of light.  You are not to keep this light for yourself, little one.  You are to share this light with all those who will listen. 

You are extremely busy, child.  Why?  There is a need.  My little ones are hungry for the word.  They are hungry for anything and anyone who can give them the strength to walk on in the struggle of life.  You feel you are having a difficult time, and God knows you are.  Think, little one, how difficult it must be for those who have no faith and trust in a God Who is light, and love, and peace.  You complain of being too busy, but child, without children such as you, My other ones would be lost, and afraid of all that is to come.

Many are noticing the signs that surround them, the signs that are to usher in My Second Coming.  They need a place, they need a person, they need something special that only children of light can give at this time.  They need to hear, "Yes, it is time for the Second Coming, and you must prepare, but be not afraid about what is to come.  Keep your eyes on God and trust in Him, and He will see you through these times that are upon us."

God loves His children, little one.  Is it not obvious in all He is doing to help each one come to the light?  He is setting up stations of prayer all over the world.  He is using My Mother, the Mother of all, to call Her children to prayer.  Look at all the visible miracles and signs given to so many.  These are not to be kept, these are to be shared.  Many receive signs and miracles and do not share.  These signs and miracles are to be shared.  These are given to strengthen the faith of others.  This is all part of the evangelization the Pope, the Blessed Vicar of My Church, is calling all of his children to participate in.  He is needing the help of all of his children. 

Many of the religious who have carried the load of this evangelization have fallen by the wayside, or have forgotten what their role is as sons and daughters of the head of My Church.  So much of the responsibility is falling on those such as you, who will share and give of your life, in order that others may grow in their faith and trust in God.  Continue to pray for all those who have need of having their faith strengthened, little one.  Continue to be used as an instrument of peace and love.  Many souls are being strengthened, and are receiving miracles that would otherwise be unclaimed.

Ruth Ann:  I really don't mean to complain Lord, because I know how much encouragement is needed.  I also need that encouragement as much as the next one, Lord.  I'm certainly nothing special.  I have the same hopes, fears, and doubts at times.  I too, need prayer and encouragement.

Jesus:  Yes little one, I continue to touch the hearts of many to let them know you too, need much prayer.  You become tired and discouraged when you are persecuted by those who wish to harm you, but many are praying and making sacrifices on your behalf, so you can continue on in your work for Me.  That is how it works, little one.  You are all one family, and in a family, each one helps the other members who are in need.  Each child in the family is given a different role to play, and different gifts, but all is to be shared for the good of the whole family.

It is as I have told you before, God has a perfect plan.  It is a giant puzzle.  Each piece must fit into place in order for the complete picture to be made whole.  It is important that each of My children listen to God and follow His will, so that they can help fit the pieces into place.  As their pieces are fit into place, the big picture is made clear, but it takes all of My children, listening and working for the honor and glory of the Father, and doing His will, not their own, for all to fall into place.  You, and what you are doing, is only a part or a piece of the puzzle, little one.  God is using you to help all the others who are in need of guidance and encouragement, to help them know their part in the picture.

God wishes all His children to share in His goodness and mercy.  This He is giving through the faith and miracles to you, and others like you.  This is not only your responsibility.  This is the responsibility of all God's children.  Share all the goodness and miracles that God in His divine mercy is giving to you, and watch the seeds that are planted grow into beautiful flowers and plants, that will have been rooted in solid ground.  Spreading God's word, so that others can develop into a stronger Christian, ready to go forth and witness to others, is most important, little one.  That is how God is touching the minds and hearts of many.

It is no longer feasible to attend Mass on Sunday, and go about the rest of the week as though you are in charge of all that is going on.  It is the time of living your faith twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.  There is no vacation from God.  You cannot separate yourself from God.  He is with you continuously.  He is responsible for every breath you take.  You cannot say, "I have been to church and have given God His due, now I can spend the rest of the time for me."  This is not so, little children.  You are to live the word of God in all you do and say.  You are to witness to His goodness by sharing all He has done in your life, so that the faith and strength that is needed for all God's children in these trying times will be available to all those in need.  This is quite a responsibility, but one that each one is capable of doing.  In sharing your faith with others, the faith of the other person will be strengthened, and on and on it will go, until the big picture will be made clear, the big picture which is God's plan. 

I know you have much to do today.  Go in My peace, child.  Know you are being strengthened and helped in this journey of faith by the prayers and sacrifice of others.  God's graces and blessings are yours in abundance.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord.

 

Message of August 4, 1993, from Our Lady

Ruth Ann:  Mother Mary, since You just gave me the message for prayer group, do You have anything else You wish to say?

Our Lady:  Child, Your Mother continues to call out to Her children.  More and more are listening, but the number needs to be greater.  I am depending on those such as you who are listening and being obedient.  I am depending on those who hear My voice and the voice of My Son, to share what We are saying.  As a child of God, I listened and was obedient to the will of My Father.  God used Me in a way I would never have dreamed possible.  Now it is your turn child, to be used in a mighty way.  God's children need special attention, little child.  God is in need of love and obedience to His will.  How can the children of today do His will if they are not listening?  If they are not listening, then there is not much love for Him.  It is all a vicious cycle.  Everyone is too busy.  How can this be?  Put God first.  He has created you.  You would have no life, family, job, time for recreation, if He had not put you here and given life to you.  Take time to pray.  Take time to listen and do the will of Him Who created you.  This is something all of My children forget.  God wishes to be recognized.  He wishes to be loved and praised.  He wishes to be asked instead of told. 

Of course He knows your needs.  You are all His children.  He knows your hearts.  He knows everything about you.  He knows all that you are doing; the very good, as well as the bad.  He loves each one of you dear children, and wishes this love to be returned.  Why does man continue to make life so difficult?  It is all so simple.  Put God first and He will care for all your needs.

Ruth Ann:  It does seem simple Mother, but You are right.  We have made our lives so difficult by cramming so much into our days and evenings.  Everyone has to be doing something all the time.  Not many have learned that time has to be taken out of our busy schedules to listen and thank God for His many blessings.  I'm guilty too.  My days are filled to overflowing with many activities and responsibilities.

Our Lady:  Most of My children are guilty of this, but remember, I have said there are many kinds of prayer.  Even an occasional 'thank You, Lord,' when you feel something has happened that only He could have done, is a very special prayer.  He does so much for each one of you, more than you could ever realize.  He takes care of you so many times and you don't even realize it.  When you do, please take the time to say, 'thank You.'   God loves you so very much, children.  All I am asking of you is to acknowledge His love.  He deserves so much more than He is getting from His children.  It breaks My heart as a Mother to see His children ignore and blatantly deny Him.  He has done so much for His children, and they continue on their way as though He does not exist.  He does exist.  Many will learn too late that God does exist.  That is why the time you are being granted to prepare for His coming is so important.  Man must pray, fast, and do penance.  Man must listen to My call and hear what I am telling him over and over.  Those of you who are listening have a grave responsibility to share all you are being told, so that the minds and hearts of those who have not taken these messages seriously, begin to realize the importance of each message.  It is called 'evangelizing,' dear children.  In a world that is too busy, you come in contact with those just waiting for some sign that God is alive, that He does exist.  Sometimes just a word or two from you, about what God has done for you, can change the life of someone who would otherwise not hear the word of God.  Man must be reminded continuously of the importance of God in His life, and you can do this for one another by witnessing of His greatness, goodness, and mercy shown to you in your life.  That is called 'witnessing.'  That is called 'evangelizing.'  You need not shout it from the rooftops, just a word here or there is all that is needed.  The seeds are planted by you, then it is up to that individual to tend and water the seeds planted.  They must see that they grow into healthy, fruitful plants.

See why your talks are so important, little one?  Your sharing what God has done in your life has touched the minds and hearts of many.  Some-times the groups are small, sometimes the groups are large.  It is not the number present, it is who is being touched.  You speak to My children.  I will see that those I wish to have hear you and be present will be there.  I will see that those who need to be touched, are touched.  All I need is for you to be obedient and do the will of God.  Listen child and be obedient.  God will do the rest.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You for the words of encouragement, Mother.

Our Lady:  I realize that it is not easy for you.  You are one who wishes to have your life private, but this is not possible.  I will do all I can to help you with the difficult task put before you.  Many blessings are in store for you.  Go in God's peace.  Know that you are loved.

 

Message of January 20, 1994,  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I'm not sure I thanked You for seeing me through another talk.  If I didn't, thank You.

Jesus:  Little one, do you remember what you said to Me right before you were to give the talk?

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord, I do.  I remember saying I didn't want to deal with preparing for the talk, and after spending two or three minutes looking over the outline, I said to You, "If what I am doing is really of You, and if I'm really on the right path, You'll make this one of my best talks.  It will flow smoothly and the words will pour forth without any hesitation and with little effort from me."

Jesus:  Was it not so?  Did I not come to your aid?  You continue to 'test', little one.  That is as it must be.  I know your heart, and how you do not wish to say or do anything that would not be as I would have you do.  You will not lead anyone astray, child.  These talks are a witness of all the good the Lord God has done in your life.  There is no way you can go wrong.  But, little one, I will continue to reassure you at every possible moment in your journey.  I realize what you are doing is not easy for you, but I intend to make it as easy as possible.  It is because you have said 'yes' to all that has been asked of you.  Sometimes you are reluctant, and you find what you are asked to do extremely humiliating, but you continue to do what is asked of you, no matter what.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, You are referring to laying hands on people and praying with and for people.  That is terribly humiliating for me.  Many of those I am asked to pray for are better and holier people than me.  Besides that, I feel priests should be doing that kind of thing. 

Jesus:  Some do, child.

Ruth Ann:  The things You ask me to do:  the witnessing, praying with people, and recording and reading what has been told to me, are all things that bring attention to me, and I'm one who wants no attention.  I was in hopes this could all have been done anonymously.

Jesus:  That would have been impossible, child.  You were told from the very beginning you were to share and witness to your healing and all the other miracles that had been given to you.  Had you not told who you were, they would not have had the impact that they now have.  Other things that had to happen along the way would not have been possible.  So in your saying 'yes,' many graces and blessings have been made available to those who otherwise would not have received them.

Ruth Ann:  I guess I just need to have Your reassurance.

Jesus:  You have My reassurance and My love.  You also have My peace.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I have another talk coming up this weekend.  Would You please see to this one also?

Jesus:  Little one, it is done.  Give it all to Me and I will use you in the fullest possible way to touch the minds and hearts of My children.  Many graces and blessings accompany you on each one of your talks.  My Mother and I choose those We wish to have listen, at just the right time.  So it is as you have said, you are among those brought there by Us.  How can the group ever be a hostile one?  You will find the ones who are listening and being touched, know in their hearts they were supposed to be there.  So don't ever be afraid to stand up and witness for fear of being 'put on a spot'.  No one wishes to do that to you.  They too, know they would have difficulty witnessing in front of their peers. 

My children appreciate your courage and trust in Me and My Mother.  In your witnessing to your faith and trust, it strengthens the faith and trust of others.  That is how this sharing of faith works, little one.  It is called 'evangelizing'.  That is what all My children are being called to do by Pope John Paul II.  Many more need to take it seriously as you do.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You Lord, for Your words of encouragement.

Jesus:  Thank you for listening and carrying out the work here on the earth that you have been asked to do for your brothers and sisters.

Ruth Ann:  I love You, Lord.  Be with me today.  I have much to do.

Jesus:  Little one, I am always with you.  Go in My peace.

 

Message of July 14, 1994,  from Our Lord Jesus

Jesus:  My Mother has said to you, "It will all be done for you."  I can deny Her nothing.  She is My Mother, and has given Her life and Her Son's life to God for His use.  "Thy will be done," She has said, and God's will has, and will continue to be done.

Ruth Ann:  Again, Lord, I wish to thank You for all You have done to give us the support that is needed to keep us going.

Jesus:  Little one, this place was not chosen by you or anyone else on the earth, to be a haven of peace and prayer.  This was the desire of My Mother, so therefore, it too, is My desire.  You are merely human, and could not possibly do all that is needed to make this grow as My Mother wishes.  This place is holy ground.  It is a place to come for special graces and blessings.  You could not in your wildest dreams have made it become what is has become.  Only through the grace of God has this been allowed.  Know that as this grows through word of mouth, and that is called 'evangelizing', little one, so too, will the support that is needed in order for you not to be overwhelmed.  You need only be a willing instrument, ready to do the will of God.

Ruth Ann:  So long as You provide the graces and all else that is needed, we'll continue to do all we can to be of help to You.

Jesus:  Little one, you say this with such determination, and yet I know how much you are giving up of your earthly life, to become more and more at My disposal.

 

Message of August 23, 1994,  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I feel You wish to speak to me.

Jesus:  Little one, this is so.  I wish to tell you not to become discouraged because you do not know where all this is leading.  Your faith and trust is all that is of concern to Me.  My Mother and I will tend to the rest. 

Ruth Ann:  Lord, it's just that so many have put so much of themselves into this work in time, talent, prayer, and money.  No one really knows what is going on here.

Jesus:  Child, prayer is going on, and I must say it is beautiful to behold.  God's children are coming here to gain peace and to pray.  What could be more important?  They are listening and heeding the call of My Mother.  Again, what can be more beautiful than that?  As time goes on, the numbers will continue to grow.  You are concerned about your future and the future of this farm.  You have seen the fruits grow continuously, and you still do not grasp the importance of what is happening here.

Be not afraid, little one.  God is watching over all things.  Know He is pleased.  Each person called here receives special graces and blessings.  Because you can't see and don't know of these blessings, does not mean great things are not happening.  Conversions are taking place.  Healings, little one, are happening here.  Hearts are being touched.  Because all of these things are happening through peace, love, and quiet prayer, does not mean they do not exist.  Yes, there are visible signs that this place has been blessed by God.  There are little miracles and graces granted to many who come, to continue to encourage their prayer, and as special gifts for the prayer and works they have already done.  But the signs and wonders are not as important as the prayers that are brought about as a result of their coming to this special place to pray.

Ruth Ann:  What of those who cannot come?

Jesus:  Little one, all of My children, who love Me and My Mother, are known to Me.  I know their hearts.  Great graces abound to those who love God and seek to do His will, whatever that may be.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You for the special grace that was given to me and to Jim yesterday.

Jesus:  Little one, you were both in need.  You had just been through a very busy week and weekend.  You were drained physically and emotionally through tending to My children.  I know what you need and when you need it.  I will always be there when there is a need.  I have told you, you are to receive little miracles daily, in order for you to carry on in your work.

Ruth Ann:  I guess I have been too busy to notice Lord, I am sorry.

Jesus:  When you notice, you thank Me.  That is enough.  You are doing much on behalf of Me and My Mother.  We realize the sacrifices that you and your family have made as a result of all that has been asked of you, so do those who come here to pray.  Most would not put themselves or their families through this without great monetary rewards.  You ask for very little, child, and when you do, it is always for others.  How could God not be attentive to each of the tiniest needs within your heart?

Ruth Ann:  I am feeling so ashamed as You say this to me.  You do so much for me and those around me most of the time.  Without me even verbalizing it, my needs are tended to, Lord, before I even ask sometimes.

Jesus:  I know your heart, little one, just as I know the hearts and minds of all My children.  They too, have prayers answered that go unspoken.  Many do not acknowledge, and think they are having good luck.  As most of My children say, "That was truly a coincidence."  There are no coincidences, and there is no good luck.  These are blessings and miracles.  My children are in need of a lesson in faith and trust in their God.  They are in need of knowing they should thank Him Who created them, for these special gifts and blessings they experience in their daily lives.

Ruth Ann:  I agree, Lord, for I too, take these things for granted.  Thank You for reminding me of all You do.

Jesus:  I am here for you and all My children, always.  So is My Mother.  Listen, and spread the love and blessings through the words and messages being given to you.  This is evangelizing.  This is what My disciples of old were called to do, and this is what you are called to do in these times.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I am listening.  Give me the strength.

Jesus:  It is yours, little one.  Now go about your day in the love and peace of your Jesus.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.

 

Message of September 8, 1994,  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I can't get back to sleep, and I feel You are wanting to speak with me.

Jesus:  Little one, this is true.  You are experiencing concern about many things, and you need not.  Your concern for all things must be placed in the hands of One Who is in control.  You are merely human, child, and can do nothing about any of the things that are bothering you.  So why do you fret so? 

Ruth Ann:  It's probably habit, Lord.

Jesus:  Habit, and the tactics of the evil one.  How many times must I remind you that when your peace is being disturbed, it is not of Me.  Always come to Me when you are concerned about those things of which you have no control.  Be at peace, little one.

Ruth Ann:  Yes Lord, I'm already feeling better.

Jesus:  Those things I am telling you are also important for My other children to hear and to realize.  The evil one uses all kinds of tactics to bother My children.  When you are of Me and at peace, nothing can disturb this peace that surrounds you.  Too many times, doubts and fears creep into the minds of My little ones, and then those things that normally are considered little irritants, become bigger and more stressful than they should become. 

Be at peace little children, God is in control of all that is happening.  He knows your every fear, hope, and dream.  Give all to Him.  He has a reason and purpose for all that is going on in your life.  All things work for the good of God, when you are striving for the holiness that God desires for you.  Even the bad can be worked for good.  Remember, God can use all things for His greater honor and glory.  You do not see the big picture, but know that as long as you do the will of God, He will tend to the rest.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You for the reminder, Lord.  Is there anything else You wish to add?

Jesus:  Only this.  My Mother is calling My children to unite in prayer.  This is extremely important.  Those who are listening to Her call are pleasing to Me.  She works tirelessly trying to help My children  recognize the importance of the times.  Make no mistake about it, little one, the end times are in your midst.  Those who choose to close their eyes and ignore all the signs, are only fooling themselves.  The need for prayer is great in your world, and My children would do well to listen to My Mother.

Ruth Ann:  Many do not wish to hear, Lord.

Jesus:  You are right, child, because if they truly listen, they know then in their heart, that lives must be changed.  Their TVs and radios must be silenced.  The time spent concerned about those things of the world, could, and should be spent focused on prayer.  Effort should be put forth toward the saving of one's immortal soul, and the souls of others.  Instead, the time is spent trying to find ways to tend to the physical pleasures of the world, or in some cases, man shuts himself in the confines of his home, watching TV. 

The television has destroyed family life.  Time that used to be spent in communicating with one another, and interacting with one another, My children are spending in isolation, swallowed up in a world of make-believe.  It has destroyed family life, values, and the peace of My children.  The media in general, seeks to share all that is ugly.  It is rare that the headlines in a newspaper tell of something good happening.  Magazines, newspapers, movies, television, radio, all seem to find the negative and dark side of My children, and sensationalize it to the maximum degree.  Even the music of today reflects the moral decay in the world around you. 

See the need for prayer, little one?  See why My Mother is working so hard, in so many places, to make known to Her children that time is running out?  There is indeed, need for change in the lives of My children, and repentance of their sins.  Man must not be caught sleeping.  Instead, he must become aware of the signs surrounding him.  He must realize My Mother is trying to get his attention for a reason.  That reason is the salvation of his immortal soul. 

Those of you, who are vigilant, are aware of the signs, and have changed your lives for the better.  You must pray for the souls of others who are not listening.  Pray that their hearts be touched and broken open, to receive the greatness and goodness of God's love and mercy.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, we try to do that in prayer group through saying the Rosary, attending daily Mass, reading the Bible, and praying for others.  Is there anything else we should do?

Jesus:  Yes, child.  Witness to the good that has been done in your life.  Those things that happen to you and your loved ones, that has brought about a conversion for you, must be shared with those that have not experienced this conversion.  This is called evangelizing.  All of My children are called to do this.   Anytime the opportunity presents itself, share what God has done, and is continuing to do in your life.  This is important in a world filled with darkness and loss of hope.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel, little one, and it will shine for those seeking to find hope and peace in their life.  In many cases, they do not realize that it is God who is missing from their life.  It is My peace they seek.  My Mother is trying to guide Her children through the darkness into the light of My love and mercy.  Pray for all those caught up in the world, and the darkness of the world.  Pray that they recognize the signs that all is not right with their world.  Pray for those who will be lost if they do not take the blinders from their eyes.

Ruth Ann:  These words will be in print, Lord, as a reminder to Your children.

Jesus:  Thank you for sharing, and I thank all those who are in any way helping My Mother spread the importance of what is being shown to those who have eyes to see.  Be at peace, little one.  Know I am with you through all you say and do.  Be obedient, and continue to do the will of God.
