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 March 10, 1993, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

My Dear Children,

You must know the importance of what you are doing.  Prayer is of the utmost importance in this war of good against evil, and make no mistake about it, good will triumph over evil!  In this time of darkness, when it is so difficult to see or hear of much good happen-ing, you are the beacons of light shining through this blanket of disgrace!  Do not lose hope!  Despair is not of My Son or of Me.  We bring hope, love, and peace.  The graces are here in abundance for you and all those you pray for.  Listen to God's word in My messages, dear children.  Your Mother is here to help you.  My protective mantle surrounds you and your dear ones.  God's mercy is so great, and so is His love for all those who are listening and responding to My call.  Many will be saved through your obedience and sacrifices.  Souls will be snatched from the hands of the evil one through your prayers.  Continue to be of help to Me.  I need the prayers of each one of My special children of God.  Go in the peace of My Son.  I give you My Motherly blessing.

 

Message of March 24, 1993, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

My Dear Children,

Prayer is of the utmost importance in this time of great upheaval in the world!  Times are very difficult for all My children, so I am depending upon all of My children in prayer groups all over the world, to help Me bring souls to God.  This is a grave responsibility, but one that brings many graces to those who have accepted this responsibility.  Miracles are continually brought about by those who continually ask God for these miracles.  He is listening to My faithful children of prayer.  Do not underestimate the power of your prayer.  Continue to help Me, help My children, who have no desire to help themselves.  Miracles are what prayer is all about.  I thank you and give you My Motherly blessing, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

 

Message of March 31, 1993, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

My Dear Children,

God knows the times are difficult for His people.  He also knows many of you are discouraged with what is going on around you.  It is because of this, that your prayers are even more important than before.  Do not be disheartened, God has not abandoned His people and He would never do so.  I have said many times, "The evil one will be defeated!"  This will be so.  My protective mantle is around you and all the believers of God's word.  "I am the Resurrection, I am the light and life of all My children," says the Lord.  "Those who believe in Me shall never die."  These are words that guarantee everlasting life to you, His children.  Do you not know that God is watching all that is going on?  He has known since the beginning of time that the world would come to this.  Even your world has become a place of darkness.  God has not forgotten you.  He has sent Me to help you and others.  Through your prayers dear children, others lives too, will be spared.  God's love is great for all those who love Him.  God's graces and mercy are yours, dear children.  It is there in abundance and being poured out on those who ask for it.  Ask for it dear children, for your families, friends, and all those in need.  I love you and I thank you for listening to My words of encouragement.  Go in God's peace.

At the conclusion of this message, Ruth Ann had the following conversation with  Our Lady, and Ruth Ann began by saying, "Our Lady, that was a very long message today!"

And Mary replied, Little child, I am aware that many of you are concerned with all that is going on at this time.  I am here to encourage you to pray.  Those who love God need this help and guidance to continue on the right path.  Those who are of God see all the evil and destruction and become discouraged.  I want My children to know they are on the right path.  Others are so caught up in the material aspect of the world, they are like animals with blinders on.  They can only see the evil that is put before them as temptation and continue down this road of destruction. These people need much prayer.  People in high places in government need much prayer.  It is so easy at this time to become discouraged.  That is why I have been sent to you.  Be not afraid.  God is watching over His children.

 

Message of May 1, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Jesus.

Jesus:  Yes, little one.

Ruth Ann:  This was a long, tiring week and I felt very sad.

Jesus:  I know, child.  The spring weather is reminding you of many things.  Things that are no longer a part of your life.

Ruth Ann:  Yes.  I miss my animals and I miss my parents, maybe not in that order, but there is a sadness there.  I'm also concerned about so many people who are sad and ill.  I feel such a burden.  The weight of so much sorrow and pain overwhelms me.

Jesus:  Child, that is because you take everything that is said or asked of you so personally.  You have not learned that I am to carry the burdens.  You are to do the praying.  Trust in Me, little one.  Pray, but do not take on each person's sorrow and pain.  You are a very sensitive person.  That is good, for it helps you realize the need for prayer.  If you did not have this sensitivity, then you would go about your day and ignore the need for prayer.  That is the way of many of My children.  They go about their day and ignore that I am God.  They ignore that I am in every person they meet, and because of this, they become angry about things that are really not worth being discussed.

Ruth Ann:  I know I do that, Lord.  I feel this is a reminder for me.

Jesus:  Yes, little one, do not let yourself fall into the trap of fussing and fuming over things and incidents that are energy-consuming but produce no good fruits.  That is not of Me.  Take your concerns and disappointments to prayer, little one.  I am here to listen.  Others are not.  When you share something that is negative, then those you share this with, too, are brought down.  Evil begets evil.  On the other hand, when you share something positive, that has a lifting effect, does it not?

Ruth Ann:  Yes Lord, I see what you mean.  This person has been in a bad mood all week and has picked at me for the tiniest things.  Not only me, Lord, but others as well.  We have been sharing and have been irritated all week.

Jesus:  That is what I mean, little one, and has any good come from it?  Has it made any of you feel better, having aired all the negative feelings?

Ruth Ann:  No Lord, as a matter of fact, it has made my week even worse.

Jesus:  That is what I mean when I say, "Evil begets evil."  Airing these irritations with others only makes it become bigger.  It not only causes you to be down, but it brings the spirits of those around you down.  That is not what I want for My chosen ones.  My children must be an example for those of My children who are not aware of My goodness.  They must see you as a child of God.  A child of God would not be critical of those around you.  A child of God would look for the good in others and try to uplift those who are around them.

Ruth Ann:  You have made Your point, Lord.  It is very easy to fall into that trap.  I am guilty of all those things.

Jesus:  There is a lesson in this, little one, not only for you but all those who will hear and read these words.  All My children are guilty of these things.  If only the energy they put into their anger and irritation was put into prayer, the world would be a much better place.  Man has a tendency to want to be in control of his life.  Each person feels this way.  No one wants to take orders or follow rules.  Everyone wants rules bent and this cannot be the case.  What good are rules if they are to be broken by some, and followed by others?  That is true of My Commandments.  There is no bending of My rules.  Man does the bending, and that is not to be the case.

Ruth Ann:  Now, I am not sure what You are referring to, Lord.

Jesus:  It truly does not matter if you understand all that I am saying to you, child.  Others will understand.  Those who need to hear My words will understand.

Ruth Ann:  We kind of got off the subject, Lord.  I was telling You of my sadness.

Jesus:  You also were saying you had a bad week, one full of irritation.

Ruth Ann:  That is true, Lord.  When we are sad, we tend to look on irritations as being greater than they truly are.

Jesus:  Little irritants become big ones, depending on our mood, is it not true?

Ruth Ann:  Yes Lord, it is true.  I see what You mean.  It would be better if I addressed the sadness in prayer, and then the other things around me would not seem so out of proportion.

Jesus:  Yes, little one, that is what I am saying.  Love one another.  Look for Me in one another, and then the irritants would be only as they are, little irritants, and tiny imperfections, not something that requires the use of so much energy.  Use your energy to pray for those who constantly put you down.   This is what I am saying.  It will do so much for you and those you pray for.  You will feel better and you will see a change in those who irritate you.

Now, about your sadness.  This is not something that it is easy to rid yourself of.  In a world of dark-ness, there is much sadness.  You will continue to feel sadness for others.  That is as it should be.  The sadness you feel from time to time about your family and loss of certain special animals, this too, is something you will feel from time to time.  But remember, this is all of the past and not much time should be spent on the past.  The past cannot be changed, but the future can be changed.  The future and today are what you should, and all My children, must concentrate on.  The future can be changed by prayer.  Today can be changed by prayer.  So, little one, do not dwell on those things that make you sad.  Know that all things happen for a reason, even the death of the tiniest creature has a purpose.

God has a divine and perfect plan for man and the entire world.  Know that even in this time of darkness, that in the end, God is the master planner.  He is in control.  When He is finished, He will say, "This is enough," and it will be so.  Each of you as His children have a special part to play until the end is here.   That special part, little one, is called, 'doing God's will.'  It takes many graces to be able to do the will of God.  Remember this, and pray, fast, do penance to be able to follow the will of God.  Receive the Eucharist as often as possible.  This will strengthen you, as will the Sacrament of Penance.  Confessing one's sins gives you the opportunity to see yourself as you truly are, and this too, is a grace.  

Do you feel better, little one?

Ruth Ann:  Yes Lord, I feel at peace again.

Jesus:  Do not wait so long next time to speak with Me.  I am only a heartbeat away, and so is My peace.  Know I love you and wish you to have this peace always.  I wish this for all My children.

Ruth Ann:  I do know, Lord.  It's so easy to lose perspective.  I have much to learn.

Jesus:  At least you are aware of this.  Many of My children are not.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You for speaking with me, Lord.

Jesus:  I thank you for listening, and now go about your day to love and serve Me.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.

 

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

My Dear Children, 

When you gather together in such great numbers to pay homage to Me and My Son, how it touches the One Who created you.  There is strength in numbers, children, that is why so many of you are here.  You have not come on your own.  Each one of you has been brought here by special invitation.  I am calling to all of My children to tell them how much God loves them.  They need only to listen with their ears, and see with their eyes, to know that times are very difficult in your land.  The world is covered with darkness, but do not lose heart.  Focus on My Jesus, He is light, life, and love.  He has, and is, the peace that should reign in the hearts and minds of all those created by God. 

Dear children,  I continue to call all of you to pray.  Those of you who are listening have a grave responsibility to all those stumbl-ing around blindly in darkness.  God has called you to love your neighbor.  What greater love can you show for your neighbor, than the concern for his salvation.  Therefore, dear children, I am calling you to pray for the conversion of all those who are not aware of God's love.  Pray that God will break open the hearts of even the most hardened criminal, allowing all the putrid stench of the evil to be emptied, only to be replaced by the burning desire to love and know My Son.  I am here with you, and I join My heart to yours in this prayer.  Praise be the name of My Son, Jesus, Who awaits those beautiful prayers for the souls of others.  My Motherly blessing I give you as I spread My protective mantle around you and your loved ones.  Love My Son.

 

Message of Feb. 20, 1994, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

My Dear Children,

How it pleases Me to see you gathered together in such great numbers.  As I have said many times before, there is strength in numbers.  So, too, is the power of prayer strengthened when so many of My children are gathered together with a common purpose.  Each one of your prayers is like a beautiful flower.  Together they are a tremendous bouquet being placed before the Throne of God.  How can God not be touched by this humble gesture.  Dear children, each prayer you say, each sacrifice you make, is being heard and noticed by God.  All of these things do make a difference.  Be humble, obedient children.  Pray from the heart.  You seek peace in a troubled world, dear children, and this peace can only come from God.  God wishes you to know He loves you.  Do not continue to turn your back on this God Who created you in His own image and likeness. 

He is displeased with the sin in your country and is sending reminders of this through supernatural disasters.  Take heed of these warnings.  Turn back to God while there is still time.  I am here with you to assist you in any way I can.  Good will triumph over evil, little children, but not before there is much suffering.  Prepare your hearts.  Live each day as if it were to be your last, and you will not be uncertain of your place in God's heart.  Pray for all God's children, that they may become aware of the import-ance of My messages.  Pray for their conversions.  Know, dear children, God is listening. 

During this lenten season, renew your heart, mind, body and soul, through frequent reception of the sacraments.  Repent of your sins.  Pray, pray, pray!  Graces and blessings are being given to you in great abundance in this place of peace and prayer.  Thank God for allowing this to be so.  Love Me.  Love My Son.  Go in His peace.

 

Message of May 20, 1994,  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I'm extremely tired.  This has been a busy couple of weeks.  It's been full of prayer and personal obligations.  Please help me to get the rest I need, so I can do all I need to do.

Jesus:  Little one, soon you will be given a respite.  It will be brief, but you will have time to rest and pray.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord, I will look forward to that.  Is there anything You wish to say to me?

Jesus:  Little one, you are in need of encouragement, and I am here for you.  You must realize that many hearts continue to be touched by your love and obedience.  I thank you for your willingness to be an instrument through which I can work.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, You are God.  You don't need anyone or anything.  You can do all things.  You don't really need me.

Jesus:  It is My choice, little one.  I have chosen to work through the lowly and downtrodden since the beginning of time.  It is through those willing to follow the demands placed upon them by My Father, that have been instrumental in bringing about change.  Little one, you will have to admit, change is needed in your world today, much change is needed.  It is through My chosen ones that this change will come about.  Minds and hearts must be touched.  Man must come out of the darkness, into the light.  The evil one continues to wreak havoc, but My Mother continues to speak to many, and is bringing about a change in the minds and hearts of those who listen.

She is calling many to prayer.  She has said over and over, Her Immaculate Heart will triumph. This will be done through the mighty army of those devoted and committed to see this come about.  The rosary is a powerful weapon, little one.  It will one day strangle and destroy the evil one.  Many are looking forward to that day.  Do not become weary or discouraged.  There is much in your world to cause you to become overwhelmed.  Stay focused on your Jesus, and know that good will triumph over evil.  In the meantime, much prayer is needed.  There is power in prayer, and even greater power when the members who gather together are sincere in helping this change come about.

Now I know your day ahead is another busy one, and you have a powerful evening of prayer ahead of you.  Go in My peace.  Prepare for the Holy Spirit to work in a mighty way through you and those you will be praying with, and for.  Go in My peace, and know that I am God.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord.

 

Message of Oct, 21, 1994,  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I'm listening, but it seems I've had little time to listen the last couple of weeks.  I was ill, and we also had our new grandson.  Today is also another busy day, but still I feel the need to listen and write.

Jesus:  It is so, child.  I am here for you at all times, but there are times when you cannot write the words being spoken to you.  You have continued to communicate with Me, and with My Mother.  You have been ministering to My children during this time.  With these things in mind, continue to listen and share with the time that is available to you.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.  What is it that You wish to share today?

Jesus:  That I am always here for all of My children, even when they do not feel I am with them, they are never deserted.  Friends and family may turn their back on them, but I will never do so.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, sometimes I find it extremely difficult to even pray.  When I am so tired that I can barely think straight, that seems to be the last thing I want to do.

Jesus:  It is then, little one, you must offer up this tiredness and feeling of being 'empty' to Me, and I will accept it just as I would any form of prayer.  That too, is prayer, child.  Anything you give to Me, with love in your heart, is prayer.  So many of My children, who find themselves unable to sit and pray, read My word, or are unable to attend Mass, feel like they are unable to pray.  Prayer can be as simple as offering up your entire busy schedule, and asking Me to be with you throughout the day.  It is true that I wish for all of My children to find some time for Me throughout each busy day, but when this is not possible, then offer up the gift of your busy day to Me.  I will accept it with all the love and desire that comes with it.  Yours has been a busy month, but you have taken the time to listen to Me when you have had the time.

Ruth Ann:  Not as much as I should have, Lord, and I feel guilty about that.

Jesus:  Little one, I have understood your feelings of being torn between your family, and the need to minister to My children.  You have made a great sacrifice in choosing to do the will of God.

Ruth Ann:  You are too kind to me, Lord.  I don't deserve it.  I still can't understand why You bother with me.  I continue to get angry when things don't go the way I feel they should go, and I become irritated when I have to choose between time with my family, and doing whatever You would have me do.

Jesus:  You become irritated and angry, but you have never deserted Me.  How could I do less for you?  When you have had to make a choice, you have chosen Me.  What greater love for Me could you show than that?
Ruth Ann:  So You continue to tolerate my temper tantrums, and forgive me?  You totally amaze me, Lord.

Jesus:  Little one, what is there to forgive?  Of course you become angry.  You are a mother.  You desire time with your family.  You were in hopes after leaving your career behind, you would have lots of time to do those things you enjoy, being a mother and grandmother.  Now as you become busier and busier with My work here on the earth, you are finding yourself torn between those things you desire, and those things I desire for you.  This will continue to be so, little one.  I have said the time will come when you will have little time for your family, and more and more time will be spent ministering to My people.  I ask you this question, who is your family, child?  All God's children in need, are your family.  Those sent to you for prayer are just as important to Me as your family is to you. 

Be at peace with what you have been chosen to do, child.  There is much more to come.  I am always here for you, so do not feel that because you do not feel prayerful, that I am not ministering to you.  I will continue to minister to you and your family.  Through your tears, joys, and irritation, I am still here for you.  Never doubt My presence in your life.  My love for you is so great, you cannot even begin to imagine its greatness.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord, for always being here for me.

Jesus:  I am here for you, and all My children.  Now I know you are anxious about this day.  I am with you.  Know all you are about to do today is for My greater honor and glory.  Be at peace with God's will.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.

 

Message of Jan. 30, 1995,  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, any encouraging words for me to share today?

Jesus:  Little one, you are still feeling bad about not getting messages from My Mother for prayer group.  As time goes on, you will understand the significance of this.  Be not afraid.  Your Jesus is still giving you words to share.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I've had so many calls asking, "Does that mean there is no longer prayer at the farm?"

Jesus:  That just goes to prove, little one, exactly what My Mother has been saying.  Her children are looking for new messages, and are not living the ones that have been given.  What they are really looking for, is someone to tell them the future.  Instead of living the messages that have already been given, and taking them to their hearts, they continue to seek those things that might indicate what is to come.  The 'what is to come' is already happening all around them.  They should not be seeking signs.  The signs are already here.  They must turn their minds and hearts to God. 

In My Mother's last message, She has said, "God loves you, and I have placed My protective mantle around you.  You must pray."  What more needs to be said than that?  What more needs to be said, to let Her children know that the work is not done?  The prayer is needed even more than ever before.  Conversions are needed.  As more and more disasters plague the earth, the prayer is needed more, not less.  Just because the messages have stopped here at the farm, does not mean the prayer, or the graces that are available here, have ceased.  She has said, there is still to be those who will see Her here.  The graces and blessings are still here, and so are the gifts of the Holy Spirit available here.  This will tell you who is truly serious about helping My Mother with the salvation of other souls.  This will separate the ones, who are here only to seek a new message, from those genuinely interested in seeking to pray for the sorry state of mankind. 

This is no concern of yours, little one.  You have been told, there will be a great harvesting of souls on this holy ground.  This is to be so.  Do not be concerned about the 'how', or the 'when'.  God's plan is perfect, and He knows all things.  Be not afraid, and be at peace with yet another change in your life.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.  You know how difficult change is for me.  Please continue to be patient with me.  I am really trying to accept each and every change that You continue to send my way.

Jesus:  Little one, I know your heart.  My Mother is still here to speak with you.  You have not been abandoned, and neither have those who have been listening.  The messages have been made available for them to ponder and turn over in their hearts.  She is only saying, through no longer giving more messages, "Time has run out."  It is time for you to live what has been told to you.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.

Jesus:  Now, you have another busy day ahead of you.  Begin it with love in your heart for all God's children.  I will be there to assist you throughout this day.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord.
