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 September 5, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Jesus, would You please speak with me?
Jesus: Yes, little one, I am here for you.
Ruth Ann: I just felt this need, Lord.
Jesus: Child, I am pleased. I thought you were tired, and wanted to rest.
Ruth Ann: This is true Lord, but what better way to rest than to listen to You?
Jesus: What would you have Me say?
Ruth Ann: Whatever You wish to say to me, Lord. Speak, and I will listen.
Jesus: Then you shall have your wish, child. I am your Jesus, Son of the Living God, and I am always here for you and all of My children. If only they would take the time to listen. Too many take their quiet time, away from work, or duties of all kinds, and turn to the television and radio to block out the sound of My voice. How can My children hear Me, little one, when they choose to occupy their minds with noise of all kinds? I know you are particularly receptive of this message, because you find many of those around you wanting to watch TV and listen to junk. You have just spoken to your husband of this. Whatever happened to people just wanting to listen to the sounds of nature, the sound of the birds singing, the wind blowing through the trees, a gentle rain? These are My way of speaking to My children who cannot hear My voice. Many shut out the most beautiful parts of life and fill them with junk and distractions of all kinds. It says though, man cannot stand the silence. Is it because man does not want to hear from Me? In most cases, this is true, child. Man does not want to hear from Me because he knows he has much he should hear and attend to. It is much easier to search for distractions. Then, there is no need to listen. This is sad, child, but it is true. Many wish they had the gifts that you have, but would not want to pay the price of these gifts.
Man is always wanting something for nothing. I do not ask for much from My children, little one, and I get even less than I ask. My children come to Me and ask for help all the time. When there is a need, they know where to find me. What ungrateful children. I ask so little from My children. I have asked over and over, just take a few minutes a day and speak to Me. Pray from the heart. It need not be in a church. It can be done anywhere. Take just a few minutes to thank Me for all the graces and blessings I have bestowed upon you. It is rare for My children to thank Me for some wonderful favor that I have seen fit to grant them, but it is not rare for My children to blame Me when things in their lives have gone wrong. When they have not listened to My will, and instead have done the will of the one who rules the earth, they give Me the credit. I am given credit for the bad choices they make, and the consequences of their bad choices. This is the way of the world, and this is the way of My children. This would not seem so bad, little one, but they do not give Me credit then, for the good in their lives. They say, "I was really lucky today." No children, it is not luck that gets you through the tough times. It is your Lord and Creator that gets you through these times. I am the One Who saves you from death, a close call, or an accident. I am the One Who stretches your money when you are in financial stress. I am the One Who sends little blessings and 'pick-me-ups' into your lives when you are feeling low. Is it not fair for My children to do the same for Me? I too, wish to have My children give Me little 'pick-me-ups.' These are special blessings to Me. That is what it means to be childlike, to have faith that all is in My hands no matter what, and still trust and have the faith and love to say, "Lord, I don't understand, but I love You and want to do Your will."
Know children, that God has a perfect plan. Know too, that God is your Creator. He creates life and He takes life, when it is time, when it is beneficial to the plan. No one knows better than your Creator what is best for you. Man continues to think in human terms. Man forgets his reason for being put on the earth. That is, to know, love, and serve God, and return to Him in the reward of eternal happiness. It is not to be happy here on the earth. This is only a testing ground, children. Here you are allowed to make choices, good and bad. Here you are allowed the opportunity to earn Heaven or lose it. It is man's choice. I have done, and continue to do, everything I can to make it easy for My children to want to earn Heaven and be happy with Me for all eternity. But man continues to follow darkness, and all that is not of Me. That is man's choice. I continue to send reminders to man that I am in control, not man, but he continues to turn a deaf ear. He really does not wish to listen to what I have to say. I will continue to call to My children in many ways, and so too, will My Mother. Those who choose to listen will receive the graces and blessings they ask for at this time. Those who hear and walk away, that is their choice.
Know child, that many are being called through you and this place of prayer. This will continue to be so. Continue to listen, little one, for all those who do not hear My voice. Pray for the conversions of those who are most in need, those who continually shut Me out to the distractions of the world. I bless you for listening, and I bless you for thanking Me at all times of the day and night, for all I have done for you and your family.
I am especially pleased for all the times you just say, "Jesus, I love You so much." These are the prayers that are so very special to Me. If all My children would only take a few minutes every day to say such as this to Me, how pleased I would be. Being the loving Father that I am, I will continue to minister to My children even without the thanks. How much more pleasant it would be, though, if all My children could be grateful for all I have done for them and their loved ones.
Now child, I know you were wanting to rest. You have had a busy day. Go in My peace. I love you and I wish only your happiness.
Ruth Ann: Thank You Lord, for these words. I love You.
Message of Sept. 12, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, I'm here to listen. Is there anything You wish to say to me to share with others?
Jesus: Little one, you know that when you are ready to listen, I am here to speak to you. This is so for all My children.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I know I can't be the only one listening. Many people who come here to pray, too, are listening to You and Your Mother, but say they can't hear You in their heart or mind.
Jesus: Child, that is because I do not speak to all My children in the same way I speak to you. It is as your priest has said many times. God speaks to us in many ways. Sometimes it is through Scripture, the words of others, or a gentle breeze. There are many ways in which I communicate with My children. They need only be aware and alert for the answers to their questions and the desires of their heart.
Man makes it very difficult to hear Me. He has created on his own, many distractions. He has come a long way from the quiet life, close to nature and tilling the earth to survive. He has gone from depending on God to survive, and trusting that He would provide no matter what, to ignoring God totally. Now, man actually believes he is the one who is in control. He is the one who provides for his family. He has forgotten that it is God Who has allowed him to walk, breathe, and earn a living for his family. He alone has made it possible for man to become successful. Does man take the time to thank Him for this success? No child, the majority of My children are like ungrateful, spoiled children. They not only forget to thank Me for what they have, they continue to want more and more. The time they could spend in prayer, in thanksgiving to the Lord God, their Creator, and giver of all gifts, they spend rewarding them-selves. My children always find the time to spoil and pamper themselves in some way, but they seldom find time to share their happiness with Me. It's ironic, isn't it? The One Who is capable of allowing them to live or die is given little notice, while man is content and happy.
I'm always spoken to, and sometimes very harshly, when man is upset that things are not going in their lives the way they want them to go. I am always told what I am doing wrong, and how My plan for them and their loved ones is a mistake, but how many times do My children come to Me and just say "Thank You, Lord," when things go the way that they would have them go.
So child, I am waiting on all of My children to truly listen to Me. I am waiting for them to truly listen and respond to the call of My Mother. Pray from the heart! Pray in thanksgiving and love, and also pray that the will of God be done in your life, and in the lives of your loved ones. I am listening. I am speaking to each one of you in a way that you can hear. For many it is through the messages such as you are receiving at this very moment, little one. For others, it is through a happening in their lives that they consider luck. Luck is not part of My plan. There is no such thing as luck. Know, children, as I say it to you, luck is not part of God's plan. Divine Providence does not exist by luck. God's plan is perfect. Man's plans are never so. Sometimes God's plan seems all wrong to man, and sometimes hurtful or harsh, but know, dear children, that all things are done for the good of His children. God's plan for each one is perfect. Be not afraid. Trust in Me, children. Know that no matter what happens in your life, there is a reason. You are not in control. God is the ultimate controller. It is through His love that each of you exist. It is through His love and mercy that all of you live, or are called home. That is why, little one, it is so important for My children to know these things. It is so they can break away from the darkness that has spread over their life.
It is time for My children to listen, and hear the words My Mother is speaking to all God's children. As I have said over and over, God does not wish to lose a single soul, but He is losing many. Man is caught up in darkness. The evil one has been so subtle that man has been ruled by the evil one in so many ways, without man realizing it. The media has become the focus of the lives of so many. It is they who have corrupted the moral fiber of the family. They are responsible for setting the moral standards of the entire world. Sad, isn't it, little one? The more knowledge man has, the more he ignores God and His Command-ments, and looks to the ways of self-gratification. The very One Who is responsible for giving man the knowledge to be able to do good in all men's lives, the more this knowledge has been used to corrupt and destroy the values that this nation was founded upon.
Darkness covers the earth, little one, but there are those of you who will continue to be a lantern, calling all My lost children to My light, which is their salvation. Continue to listen, little one, and share what I am telling you. Man must realize the error of his ways. Time is drawing nearer when the mercy of God will no longer be available to all those to whom He is calling. You are obedient, child. Continue to be so. Let these words go out to all My children. Pray that they listen while there is still time.
God has a plan. He loves His children more than you can ever imagine. As a result of this love, He must find ways in which all will be drawn to Him. That is His real reason for creating man, to know, love, and serve God, and be happy with God in Heaven. You have said these words in your religion classes as children. To you, they were just words. They are not just words, little one. They are truth. God wants all of His children to believe this truth. If he believes this truth, he will listen, and change his way of living. He will have a true conversion of the heart. If he does not, then he will be lost. There will come a time when man will wish he had listened, not only to Me, but to My Mother. Then it will be too late. God is giving every opportunity to come to the foot of the cross and ask for forgiveness. He is giving man many graces through miracles and signs. He has sent the Mother of His Son, Jesus, to minister to His people. He continues to send those, such as you, among His children to share His word and love. But still, some turn a deaf ear to His words. Some are listening, some are not.
You are not to worry, little one. God in His love will care for those who have responded to His call. He will also take care of those who continue to ignore Him. He will find ways to get the attention of all His children. You continue to be obedient, and leave the rest to God.
Go about your day with Me, and remember these words that are truth. Share them with others. God made you to know, love, and serve Him, and be happy with Him in Heaven. God loves you. Go in His peace.
Message of December 3, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Jesus: All My children have difficulty with the word 'patience'. You live in a world of instant food, instant pictures in the form of television, instant answers. The world is at your fingertips through telephones, computers, and other forms of communication, and yet, the most important instant communi-cation is your God. No one wishes to take time for this communication with Me, even for a little prayer. Sometimes, just a 'thank You', or 'I love You, Jesus', would be such a blessing to My Heart. I, too, like to be comforted, and it seems more and more that I need such comfort, as the sins of My children become more and more evident. It is through communicating with those of you who will take the time to listen, that I am able to communicate this great need for love and prayer from My children. When My Mother came to you one day in tears, and you asked Her, "Why are You crying?" What was Her answer?
Ruth Ann: She said, "I am crying because there are so many who do not love My Son."
Jesus: It hurts Her deeply that so many ignore Her plea to pray and turn back to Me and away from the things of the world.
Ruth Ann: I remember how heartbreaking that was to hear Her sobbing as though Her heart was breaking. I was not given the grace to see Her, but I heard Her with my physical ears. I felt the need to comfort Her, and hold Her, but knew I couldn't. I will never forget it.
Jesus: Child, you comforted Her with your words and prayers. You continue to comfort Her with your obedience and willingness to do what is asked of you. It is for Her Son you are doing these things. That is a beautiful gift of love and comfort to My Mother and to Me. I know you have a busy day ahead of you. My peace be with you as you go about this day.
Ruth Ann: Thank You Lord, for Your love and patience.
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 January 6, 1994, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, do You have anything You wish to share with me today?
Our Lady: Child, I am your Mother. I have said before, I am here if and when you need Me.
Ruth Ann: It's not that I have a need this morning, but I was awakened early, and felt I should use this time in prayer with You or Your Son. I am at peace, which is a miracle. With two talks coming up in the next two or three weeks, third Sunday, and many things in the offing, I truly am grateful to God for this.
Yesterday was a difficult day for me, but my peace was returned last evening before prayer group. I had about a half hour alone in the chapel, to just be quiet, and it was during that time that my peace was restored.
Our Lady: So many children do not realize the importance of quiet time with God. Most wish to have their day spent with distractions of all kinds.
Ruth Ann: I have never had a difficult time with quiet, Mother. I prefer it. Maybe having come from a large family, and raising a family, and teaching, has made me appreciate quiet time.
Our Lady: Yes child, all of these things have contributed to your need and desire for quiet time. But it is your God that you are drawn to at these times. That is the importance of quiet time. I have been asking My children over and over to pray from the heart, talk to My Son as a friend and confidant. He is truly your best friend. He has only your best interest at heart, and that is your soul. If man could only find five minutes a day to set aside for My Son, he would discover the beauty of this time and the time would continue to grow. Reading God's word in the New Testament is a special gift. It not only provides quiet time, but you'll find that God speaks to you through the scriptures, in a way you had never realized before. God's words will come alive to you if you truly read, and listen to what He is saying.
The messages that I have given to My children are words that come straight from God. I am being given this great gift in order to share it with you. God is allowing Me the privilege to minister to His children. Listen, and hear what God is saying to you My children, through the messages given to you by those being blessed with this gift to share. I continue to repeat over and over those things necessary to get your life in order. Some are listening, and some continue to ignore. It is becoming more and more difficult for My children to listen and follow those rules set down by God necessary for eternal life.
Live the messages. Love of God and neighbor continues to be stressed. Man has too many gods, and totally lacks concern for his neighbor. These are important in order to live the life to which you are called. A life of peace, light, and love is available to all God's children, even in these times of horrendous crimes against body, mind, and especially the soul. Focus on Jesus. The prince of peace can give you all you need to sustain you through these difficult times in a world steeped in darkness. Be not afraid. The evil one is strong, but his strength will be overcome by the graces provided through the sacraments, sacramentals, and prayer.
My Immaculate Heart will triumph, but much grief will be realized before this can be so. Man has brought so much pain upon himself by his greed and selfish ways, how this saddens My heart. How it pains My heart! How it causes My Son to suffer, over and over. If man could only see what he is doing by turning his back on God, he would wake up and get his life in order. The sadness is that man can no longer see. He is blinded by all the things and distractions of the world: greed, envy, selfishness, and anger. All of these things fill his day. Someone or something upsets him at every turn. It is because he has lost his focus, and his peace. He has turned away from God and has focused on what will give him temporary pleasure.
All of My children are guilty of this in one form or another. That is why I continue to call out to them and ask them to pray and make sacrifices. It is for the good of their immortal souls. That is My reason for coming among so many of My children who are listening. Listen to what I am saying and live My messages. Then you will gain the peace, no matter what is going on around you.
Now child, I thank you for spending this time with Me. God loves you and I love you. Continue to be attentive to the words of My Son. Go in His peace.
Ruth Ann: Thank You Mother, for taking this time with me. This was a special blessing today. I had thought I would be speaking with Your Son this morning.
Our Lady: You will be, child. It is just that what He has to say need not be recorded today. It will be of a personal nature.
Ruth Ann: Thank You Mother, for making me aware of this.
Message of January 12, 1994, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups
My Dear Children,
Seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you, ask and you shall receive. How many times have you heard these words. God wants to answer your prayers, dear children. He gives you every opportunity to come to Him for all your needs. He is available to you twenty-four hours a day. It is you who must make time for Him. It is you who must come to Him who loves you, and ask for all He has in abundance to give you. I am here to help you in any way I can, but I am only an instrument of God sent here to draw you back to the light which is My Son. I am here to intercede for you. I am here to dispense graces and blessings during these times of darkness. My messages are the same messages of old. Prepare the way of the Lord. It is time for His Second Coming. Dear children, we know not the day or the hour. Will you be ready? Pray, pray and prepare for the coming of My Son. My mantle continues to surround you and your dear ones. Love He Who is My Son and your Redeemer. Go in His peace.
Message of January 20, 1995, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, I need to speak with You. You have said that I should speak with You today.
Jesus: Little one, you have been extremely busy, and you have done all the other tasks that have been expected of you for others, but you have need of quiet time with Me. You are in need of My peace. That is why I have asked that you take the time to listen to Me today. Even though you have prayed with others, and attended Mass, I need for you to take that quiet time with Me, so you can write those words I wish to share with others.
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, I understand.
Jesus: Since this morning is the only time you will have that is not disturbed by the outside world, I wish for you to listen this morning. I thank you for being obedient to Me. That is something that is difficult for My children to do, but it is necessary in doing the will of God. Many times you will be asked to do something that is difficult for you to do. In doing what is asked of you, and doing it out of love for Me, it gives you the opportunity to grow.
You have asked, how are you to continue to grow? There are many ways to experience growth. This is one. In doing those things you are asked to do, that you do not especially find comfortable to do, you are experiencing a 'stretching' that you would otherwise not experience. If My children only do those things they find enjoyable, or easy to do, they will not be stretched to the outer limits of their potential. Only God knows the potential of each of His children, and He will not stretch you beyond your endurance.
You may feel you are being put upon at times, but this is because you think in human terms. Be patient, little one, and trust in Me. I will tend to you, and I will tend to all those things that you have on your mind. The future is not yours to know, little one. I have told you many times, live for today, take it one day at a time. Yesterday is past, and tomorrow is unknown to you, but known to Me. Trust, little one, and know that God will tend to tomorrow. As you do His will today, and do it out of love, be at peace. Your day is busy, and God understands that many of your days are busy, as is true of many of His children, but that does not mean you cannot take the time to spend with Me.
In your case, you must find the time to listen, and write the words I am speaking to you, so that many of My children may find comfort in them. In the case of My other children, they too, must find time to spend with Me, even if it is only to say, 'Jesus, I love You. Help me get through this busy day of mine'. My children have need of peace, and in this busy world, this peace can only be found in one place, that is in the love of their Jesus. 'Busy' is sometimes necessary, but so is the love and peace that must be a part of all the lives of all My children. Even a tiny prayer said out of love, is better than no prayer said at all. So tend to those things that must be done, but never forget Who is in charge of your life. Never forget Who has given you all the things that make it possible to exist. And most of all, do not forget the One Who loves you better than you could ever be loved on this earth. My love and peace are yours, little one.
Your life is a busy one at this time. Spend this day in the knowledge that God loves you, and His peace is with you. Go in this peace, to love and serve Him to the best of your ability. Thank you, child, for listening. Thank you for your obedience to Me this day. All else will go well this day, because you have placed Me first.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
