Ruth Ann stopped receiving Messages to share from the Blessed Virgin Mary on January 25, 1995. On February 23, 1995, Jesus also stopped giving Messages to share. Since that time both Jesus and Mary have requested that we begin to reread the Messages already given and to reflect on them. But most of all, that we begin to live the Messages that have been given.

Message of December 11, 1993 from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I have not written what Your Mother has spoken to me for quite a while, but yet I feel I should be speaking with You this morning.

Jesus:  If you have time, speak with both of Us today.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.  Is there something in particular You wish to say, or is it my desire that has made me feel there is a need?

Jesus:  Little one, you know I would speak to you and any of My children, any time of the day or night.  It is up to you to find the quiet time in order for you to listen without interruptions or distractions.  Even if it is only for a few minutes, it is important to have that contact with Me, the God of peace. 

Man talks of the world being such a 'mess'.  This is not difficult to notice.  Most of My children who pay any attention to the news of any kind are aware of the death and destruction all around them.  The violence that man does to each other has become commonplace.  While My Mother is calling for peace in your hearts and homes, the violence continues on.  How can there be peace in the world, if man does not have that peace in his own heart?  It is important, little one, that My children find this peace that is so necessary.  A true conversion must come within oneself.  There must be a peace and contentment in one's inner self, so that he can help those around him find peace.  Once you have found peace, and share this peace with others, it acts as a chain reaction among My people.  Those who have lost this peace, or in some cases, have never had it, wish to know peace, or have it returned to them. 

During these times of war in so many places, and turmoil of all kinds, it is important for My children to have a place to gather where they can have this peace, even if it is only for a few minutes.  It is good for My children to have this common goal.  Remember, when two or more are gathered in My name, there I will be.  God hears all prayers, but He is especially pleased when My children gather in great numbers to pay homage to all that My Mother is asking Her children to do. 

This is a time of grace, and My Mother is pouring out graces to all those who ask.  Sometimes, it is in the form of little miracles.  Sometimes, it is big miracles.  It depends on what God will allow Her to do.  God is the One Who is in control, but know My Mother will continue to plead for all of Her children, for special graces, until God tells Her it is no longer possible.  That time is drawing near, little one. 

My children continue to ignore the signs, but that does not mean, by ignoring, that it will go away.  As in the time of Noah, man continued on his merry way, ignoring God.  It did not stop God from carrying out the plans He had for the punishment of man, for all the evil he had brought upon himself.  Man will have to answer for all the death, cruelty, and abuses he has afflicted upon himself and his neighbor. 

Man was given a commandment, 'Love thy neighbor as thyself for the love of God'.  How many truly observe this commandment?  How many even know it exists?  Man has become so corrupt and self-serving, he loves self and money.  Even the love he has for 'self' is not a good love.  He does not respect himself as a temple of the Lord God.  He loves 'self' in such a way as not to wish to deny 'self' any pleasure:  whether it is food, drink, material things, sexual pleasure, man does not wish to deny his body anything. 

But what of his soul?  His soul continues to wither and die from lack of care.  His spiritual self is denied in so many ways.  The spirit, too, must be fed.  In doing so, My children will find peace.  It is through prayer and the word of God that the spirit can grow and soar and become one with the divine Creator.  Without tending to the spirit, there can be no peace and no true love of self.  Man must give up his selfish way of living.  He must learn to tend to the needs of his neighbor, both physical and spiritual.  And in doing so, his true inner self will break through this shell he has built around him; 'conversion', this word you hear over and over from My Mother.  Pray for conversion, a true conversion of self and others.  This is what the world needs, and it can only come through prayer and the grace of God.

Ruth Ann:  Yes Lord, we all continue to pray for a true conversion, just because Your Mother has asked.  I'm not sure if anyone really knew what we were asking for.  Thank You for explaining it to me.

Jesus:  Soon it will be time for you to go about your busy day, go with My peace, little one.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord.  I love You.

Jesus:  And I love you, little one.

 

Message of January 5, 1994,from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

My Dear Children,

Why do you continue to search for a false peace in the things of the world?  Don't you know that peace comes from God?  Turn away from those things that do not bring a lasting peace.  Turn back to My Son who is the prince of peace.  Then, and only then, will you find the true peace that awaits you and will remain with you.  God continues to call to you and remind you that those things of the world do not last.  They bring temporary pleasures to you, and then the feeling is gone.  God's peace will last forever.  God loves you.  Let Him draw you to His heart.  Experience the love and peace He wishes you to have through the gift of His Son.  Go in God's peace.

At the end of this message, Ruth Ann had the feeling that Our Lady wanted to say something else, so she said:

Ruth Ann:  Is there anything You wish to add?

Our Lady:  Child, no one seems to be listening.  The messages are falling on deaf ears.  Eventually there will be no more messages.

Ruth Ann:  To me?

Our Lady:  To everyone, child.  I am only here for a time allowed by God.  When My time is over, I will have to return to Heaven and leave My children to their own undoing.  I am doing all I can for the time I am allowed.  The rest is up to God and those who are listening to My call.

 

Message of February 23, 1994 from Our Lady

Our Lady:  As you work and witness for My Son, great graces will be granted to you in the form of blessings and answers to your prayers.  There is so much unrest in the world that My children must have those such as you to keep a balance in their lives.  God has touched your life in such a way, little child, that the peace and light He has left within you radiates to those around you.  This calm and love comes from God, child.  Only He can give this kind of peace and contentment in a world torn by sin, grief, torment and pain.

Ruth Ann:  You are right, Mother.  I keep hearing these awful things coming from other sources.  I no longer fear anything that is to come.  I am at peace with everything, even for my children and their children.  I feel whatever happens is God's will, and let His will be done.

Our Lady:  Child, you have totally given yourself over to God.  That is why you have achieved this peace.  You know God loves you and is in control.  Whatever He has to do to purify the earth and His children on it, has to be so.  Whatever it takes to make the earth ready for My Son's Second Coming will be done according to God's holy will.  Much suffering is ahead for My children, but as I have said before, pray and turn your lives over to God.  Stay focused on My Son.  Be steeped in light, love, and truth, and there is nothing to fear.  Man has always been told to live each day as if it were to be his last day on the earth.  This is not anything new.  All God's children must live prepared to meet their Maker at any moment.  Not many do so, but that is how one should live.  If God's children follow His Commandments, they cannot go wrong, and will be at peace with each day of their lives.

Ruth Ann:  I understand what You are saying, Mother, and yes, we have been told that over and over.

Our Lady:  Pray and make sacrifices.  Tend to the needs of your neighbor.  Love one another.  Pray for each other.  Life is very difficult for many of My children.  They struggle about in darkness, not realizing that the light they must seek is My Son.  This saddens Me.  I see so many sinking deeper into the muck and mire of sin, death and destruction.  They seek peace in pleasures of the flesh, and it is the spirit that is crying out for nourishment.  They cannot and will not be satisfied until they have a conversion.  That is why I continually ask all of My children to pray for this conversion that is so important to the life of the soul.  It is important for those who have this peace to share it with others, so they, too, can pass it to those around them.

Ruth Ann:  I thank You for enlightening me of what my true mission is, or Whoever is responsible, Our Lord, Holy Spirit, Whoever.

Our Lady:  You were reminded of the prophecy I gave to you in Medjugorje, child.  It is just that you are better understanding what God expects of you. He has said to you, "Minister to My people," and I have told you many years ago, you are to spread love and peace to your family, prayer group, and in time it will grow bigger and bigger.  This peace will spread throughout your country, and into the entire world, little child.  You cannot comprehend this, but it is true.  Much is to come, but you will have the support of your family, your God, and those friends chosen by God to assist you.  Be not afraid.

Ruth Ann:  Mother, I truly am not afraid.  I get sad from time to time for losses that have occurred in my life, but I'm truly not afraid, for I know You and Your Son will take care of us.  God is in control.  It is all in His hands.  I am in His hands, and I can think of no better place to be, in a troubled world.  I love You so much, Mother.  I thank You for taking the time to speak with me again this week.

Our Lady:  I love you, little child, and I thank you for listening and sharing.  Now, go in My Son's peace.  Spread this peace to others.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Mother.

 

Message of March 20, 1994, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

My Dear Children,

I wish to thank you for gathering here to pray.  I am here with you as you petition My Son with your many desires and needs.  Little children, do not lose heart.  God is listening to your requests.  You must know God's time is not your time.  All of your many prayers will be answered.  Know in your hearts He wishes for you to have peace.  This cannot come without accepting His will.  Pray that you understand what His desire is for you, then you will be able to help those around you achieve peace and understanding. 

There is much pain and suffering in your world today.  This is not of God.  It is being caused by those who have accepted the ways of the evil one.  May you realize the seriousness of My messages and the times that are upon you.  Peace cannot come if you do not accept the way of peace that comes only from God.  Pray from your heart, little children.  Pray for all of God's children who continue to turn a deaf ear and blind eye to what is being said and shown to you.  The time is now for My children to be vigilant.  Know that your prayers here today please your God Who is displeased with the sinfulness of your world.  So continue to pray, My remnant few, and ask God for His gifts of peace and mercy for those who are not listening. 

As My children, I love each one of you in a special way.  This day, My graces are being poured out upon you in great abundance because you are listening.  I can do this for you by the grace of God the Father.  All things come from Him who has created you.  As I am doing and have done the will of the Father, so too, you must do.  I am praying with you as are many angels and saints in Heaven.  My protective mantle surrounds you.  Go in God's peace.

 

Message of May 4, 1994, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

My Dear Children,

I come to you bearing a message of love and peace.  I am your Mother and I wish for each one of you to have peace in your heart.  Little children, unless each of you has peace in your heart, it cannot come to the whole world.  Man continues to wish for peace, but all around him is turmoil and pain.  This is not of God.  He wishes only good things for His children.  The evil one continues to work his way into the hearts of those who do not wish to accept the love and peace that is offered by a God Who loves you.  Be loving and caring children.  Do not let darkness influence your lives.  Seek out the light.  Seek out the peace that can only come from God.  Then, and only then, can peace come to your world.  God loves you and I love you.  Go in His peace.

 

Message of June 26, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I have a talk today.  Be with me.

Jesus:  Child, I am always with you.  You are doing the will of the Father, as I would have you do.  You find this difficult, but you continue on making these sacrifices for Me.  You are obedient and therefore will be granted the graces to do all that is required of you.  Do not be afraid, little one.  I will not overburden you.  Your cross will continue to grow, but so will the graces required to carry your cross.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, You know the situation, so You have to be in charge. The group I will be speaking with are not Catholic, and yet I will be saying things that are totally based upon our Catholic faith.

Jesus:  Little one, you forget that Mary is the Mother to all of My children, no matter what faith or religion, or lack of religion, dwells in the hearts of men.  Mary, My Mother, is co-redeemer.  She is being used by God the Father to tend to His little ones on the earth.  She is calling out to all children to pray.  It does not matter what religion they profess.  They are all God's children, and also the children of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, God's Son.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You for reminding me of this, Lord.  I really do know it, but some people have a difficult time with that belief.

Jesus:  It does not matter if they have a difficult time with that truth or not, it is so.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I have had several people approach me and ask me if there have been physical healings connected with my laying on of hands, and the praying that I am required to do with people.  What about it, Lord?  It's as though they don't believe it.

Jesus:  Many have received healings of all kinds, little one - physical, spiritual, and mental.  Because they have not seen or heard of these healings, it is difficult for them to believe.  Blessed are they who do not see, and still believe.  Where is their faith, little one?  Would they ask that of a physician?  No, they would not.  You are working for the greatest of Physicians, and you are being questioned of God's ability to heal?  That is the sorry state of the faith of My children.  You need not be concerned about this.  Many are experiencing healings, and they will share this knowledge with others.

As I have told you, you are only an instrument.  I am the One Who decides who, when, and what kind of healings are to be manifested through your effort and obedience.  Many still do not realize the best and most important healing, in a world filled with so much turmoil and lack of peace, is a spiritual healing.  Man continues to fret about his body, and all that will bring pleasure to that of the flesh, and the most important part of his life is his soul.  Without peace and a healing of the soul or spirit, the rest matters not.  What does it matter if a man gain the whole world, but loses his soul?

Material things, man's health, and life can be removed in the blink of an eye.  If man has not gained the love of God and His peace, he has nothing.  So, child, do not feel hurt for Me or for yourself when someone asks you that question.  They do not realize as yet, the importance of the ultimate goal of living on this earth.  The ultimate goal is to know, love, and serve God and be happy with Him in Heaven.  So the ultimate goal for men in this pursuit is a spiritual healing.  When man is called home, he will be at peace and ready to meet the One Who has placed him here on this earth.

Ruth Ann:  I guess I just want physical healings for all of Your children, Lord.

Jesus:  As do I, in My time, and in My way.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.

Jesus:  Now little one, you have things to do to prepare for your talk this afternoon.  Go in My peace, knowing full well you are doing My will, and I will be with you.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord.

 

Message of September 7, 1994, from Our Lady
(After Prayer Group Message)

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Mother, for the message.

Our Lady:  Child, the message is given in love and warmth of a Mother concerned for Her little children.  These words I repeat over and over, and yet so few are listening.  Many ignore the messages because the words must be taken to heart.  When this is done, a change must come about in one's life.  Not many want to make this change.  So many still seek the comforts of the body, and ignore those things that bring comfort to the soul.  No amount of money or material wealth can bring about true happiness.  True happiness cannot be bought.  Peace of mind and heart come from God, and are available for the asking, but man does not choose to accept this peace, because it means a change in his life.  It would mean that God must be put first, and that all other things would follow.  The material comforts of the body would no longer be of importance. 

Man does not realize, child, that God is giving him many chances to have a change of heart, and choose to live a life of peace.  Peace can only come from God, and staying focused on all things that are of God.  In a world totally given over to materialism, it is difficult to find peace or happiness.  Man continues to want bigger and more, thinking this will bring happiness.  When he gets those things, he finds his life is still lacking, so he seeks to find other ways to fill his emptiness. 

The happiness he seeks cannot be found in the things of this world.  Things of this world can be snatched from you in an instant.  If all your material things were removed from you, at this moment, what would you have?  If you are of God, you would have peace.  If you are still of this world, you would be totally devastated and think your life was over.  You must have a change of heart, little children, and realize that materialism is not the answer to happiness.  The happiness it brings is superficial, and only lasts for a little while.  God's love and peace is for eternity. 

You must make a decision, My children.  You must choose to live for My Son and have eternal happiness.  I am here to help you choose to live for God.  To live for God brings eternal happiness.  This is what I want for you, but I cannot make this decision for you.  You must listen and live My messages.  Then, you will be able to decide for yourself that which is most important.  The gift of eternal happiness with God in Heaven, is waiting for you.  Change your heart.  Be at peace.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You for sharing this with me, Mother.

Our Lady:  Child, your Mother wishes to save all souls, even the hardest of hearts.  All are in need of help.  I am calling out to all God's children.  Some are listening, some are not.  I will continue to call out for as long as I am allowed.

 

Message of October 4, 1994,  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I had such peace yesterday after speaking with Your Mother.  I think I truly felt blessed with this gift, instead of the mixed emotions that I usually feel.  I usually feel my gift has been a mixed blessing because of all the sacrifices and struggles that have come with it. 

Jesus:  My Mother has a way of giving peace to all those whose lives she touches in any way.  I sought this peace during My public life.  When I was rejected, tired, and discouraged, I always sought the refuge and comfort that My Mother could bring to Me.  You have discovered Her warmth and encouragement in hours when you have felt abandoned and alone with your cross.  All of My children can find the same source of strength and encouragement in this special Mother.  She is special in the eyes of God, for She was chosen to be the Mother of His earthly Son.  She is special because She has cared and nurtured His Son unto His death on the cross. 

Now She is tending to all His children on the earth.  She is concerned for all.  She wishes all of God's children to have the peace and feelings of hope that you experienced yesterday.  She wishes you, to keep that feeling of warmth and protection from all that would bring you unrest and the feeling of abandonment.  Stay close to Her in prayer.  She wishes to be your Mother, your strength, and your refuge, not just for you, little one, but for all God's children.

Ruth Ann:  I feel so sorry for Her.  She is so kind, loving, and caring.  I can hear and feel it as She speaks with me.  She is so concerned for all of us, and works so hard continuously, to bring us out of darkness, and closer to You.  Yet so many of us ignore Her.  Many think She is only for Catholics, and refuse to give Her the love and respect She deserves.

Jesus:  You are correct, little one.  She is here for all God's children, as is Her special prayer, the Rosary.  Many need to use this source of strength in this time of darkness.  You are feeling many of the feelings of My children so that you can understand their needs.  You have felt despair, abandonment, hurt, anger, frustration, fear, doubt, and the list could go on and on.  The reason for these feelings being allowed to come upon you, is for the sake of others.  They must know that there is hope for them.  There is a place of refuge for them.  There is a source of strength and peace that many have not tapped, or bothered to seek.  In a time when God's children struggle so, My Mother is a great source of strength and comfort.  She was, and is, there for Me, and continues to be there for all of God's children.  Those who have no earthly Mother, have not realized the source of love beyond earthly limits, if they have not turned to My Mother in their time of sorrow, grief, fear, or a feeling of abandonment.

My Mother is there to help and guide you to the source of all that is holy.  She was, and is, the epitome of holiness and goodness.  She wishes to share this love She has to give to all God's children, and wishes to draw them out of the darkness and back to the source of light.  You were touched by the love and kindness given to you yesterday when you were in need.  This awaits all of God's children.  She truly loves and cares for all, and wishes to see all attain Eternal Salvation.  She knows what awaits those who listen and live God's Word in the Holy Scriptures.  She also knows what awaits those who choose evil over good, and darkness over light. 

As a good and holy Mother, She wishes only good things for Her children, so those who seek the love and solace of My Mother can never go wrong.  She wishes to bring all to Me.  This too, is the will of God, that all His little children come unto Him Who loves them.  Those who love My Mother are best loved by Me.  I have said this before, and I will say it over and over.  She has experienced deep pain and sorrow through the 'fiat' She gave to the will of God.  She has suffered My agony and death, and She continues to suffer for all the children lost to Her Son.  She has suffered My pain of rejection, humiliation, and eventually My death.  She is your Mother, and has earned that right through the greatness of the One Who chose Her for this role.  She has played a great part in the salvation of mankind, and continues to do so.  Listen to the words being spoken to you by Her, and live these words.  They are from Heaven, and are being brought here by One Who loves you.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You for this message, Lord.

Jesus:  It is to be shared.

Ruth Ann:  It is written, Lord.  It will be shared.

 

Message of October 22, 1994, from Our Lady

Ruth Ann:  Mother, do You wish to speak to me?

Our Lady:  Child, your Jesus has said all that needs to be said.  You must stay focused on Him.  He is your hope and salvation.  He is Love, Hope, and Peace.  My children continue to walk in a world where there is no light.  The darkness is all around them, and if they do not focus on My Son, Who is the Light and Hope of salvation, they will be lost in this darkness. 

I have come to lead My children out of this darkness, and into the Light that is My Son.  Many refuse to listen, and this is causing them to continue on a path that leads to destruction.  I have come to lead them and guide them, but I cannot make the choice needed in order for them to achieve the peace they desire.  If they choose God, and all He stands for, there will be peace in man's heart, even though there may not be peace in the world around him.  My children must realize that it is God's peace they seek.  They try to find solace in the things of the world, and it cannot be found in material things.  Greed and lust are common among you. 

There is much sorrow in My Heart for those of My children not listening to the word of God, brought to this earth by His Mother.  I can only do so much.  I am allowed by God to do all that I am doing, but the time will come when what I am doing will no longer be allowed.  I have come to assist you, and bring you back to My Jesus.  You must listen, and follow the will of God for you.  Be at peace with one another, and love God above all things.  I am your Mother.  Listen, and be obedient to your Father in Heaven.  He loves you, and wishes your souls to be saved.  My mantle surrounds you.  Go in God's peace.

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

Our Lady:  I do so that you may share what I am saying to those of My children who are willing to listen.

Ruth Ann:  It is done, Mother.

 

Message of November 9, 1994  from Our Lady
(After Prayer Group Message)

Ruth Ann:  Mother, You are right.  The times are very difficult right now, and our peace is being disturbed.  Please be with us.

Our Lady:  Child, I am here.  You need not feel abandoned.  God is a God of love, but He is also a God of justice.  You must not concern yourself with the 'whys'.  But know that even those things that happen in your world, caused by evil, can be used for the good of those who love and trust in Him.  I wish for you to have peace, but in your world, it is difficult to find peace.  Turmoil continues to disturb and take you away from all that is good and holy.  Focus on My Son.  Accept this cross, and know that you are not to carry it alone.  The evil one is persistent, and will do all he can to bring unrest, hatred, and confusion into your world.  This does not have to remain. 

Give all to God.  Place those things, over which you have no control, at the foot of the Cross.  Give your hurts and burdens to One Who loves you.  God's Son has carried the ultimate burden.  You too, are asked to follow in His footsteps, but you are not to carry these burdens alone.  Just as God's Son had Simon to help with the cross He carried, you too, will be provided with help in the carrying of your cross.

I am your Mother, here to help you, as you walk this difficult path.  You cannot see the big picture, little children.  Good will triumph over evil.  Those who harm the least of My chosen ones, will have much for which to answer.  It is not for you to wish harm to those who hurt you.  Vengeance is Mine, sayeth the Lord'.  Be at peace, and bask in the warmth and love of My Son Jesus.  He is Light, Love, and Peace.  Much prayer is needed, but know in your heart, God will tend to all things in His way and in His time.  Do not allow the evil one to destroy the peace in your heart, so necessary for the salvation of your souls. 

I give you My Motherly blessing.  Know I am praying with you through these troubled times.  Seek peace, little children.  I am with you.  You must pray.
