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 1, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Jesus.
Jesus: Yes, child.
Ruth Ann: Please speak with me. I feel so down.
Jesus: Little one, it is not necessary for you to feel this way. 'Down' is not of Me.
Ruth Ann: I know, Lord. Please help me.
Jesus: I am always here to help all of My children. You are without My peace. This is so because you have not taken the time to be with Me in spirit. You have not taken the time to listen to Me. You are busy with worldly things.
Ruth Ann: You are right Lord, but most of them, or all of them, have been things that needed to be done. I love You Lord, but I find so little time to spend with You, and it is making me very sad.
Jesus: I know, little one, you lose My peace when other things are put before Me.
Ruth Ann: There is much sadness in my life right now, the loss of a dear friend and the need to help the family remain, and I have lost two relatives in the past week. Much of this brings back the death and loss of my parents. I am sorry Lord, but even though I realize they are with You it still brings back childhood memories, when life was not so complicated.
Jesus: Not so complicated for whom, though? Life has always been complicated for My children. Your parents did not have an easy life. It is just that they did not complain. They accepted their crosses because they knew it was God's will.
Ruth Ann: I am sorry Lord, I do not mean to complain. I truly feel sad. There is so much pain and suffering in the world, and so many come to me for prayer, for they feel I am closer to You and Your Mother, and You will hear my prayers more clearly, and answer them as though You would grant me a favor that You would not grant them. That saddens me, Lord. I know You love all of us the same, and will answer all our prayers.
Jesus: Little one, you have found favor with God, and it is true that those who find favor with God are granted special graces to pray for others. These graces are necessary to all God's children, so that their prayers can be heard. Why do you at times pray to special saints for special favors? It is because you feel these favors will be taken directly to God with no delay. It is like having a lawyer plead your case before a judge. That person has the skill to plead your case. It has been proven so. In your case, child, it too, has been proven. Others have seen that you listen and you have heard the word of God and, too, you have found favor with God. It has been proven through the visions, miracles, and healings you and others have received as a result of your prayer and obedience. So even though you do not wish to accept this special honor bestowed upon you by God, as such, it is so. So when someone calls or comes to you for prayer, continue to do as you have done. Take it to your heart.
You feel others pain and suffering, and it is because you are a very sensitive child. I would have it no other way. God sees your tears and feels your pain for others. He takes it to His heart. It is precious to Him, little one. He wishes all His brothers and sisters to love each other as you do.
Child, you feel this to be a terrible burden. Are not all crosses burdens? This is only the tip of the iceberg, so to speak, little one. Not only will the graces flow from you, for and to others, so that God will grant them special favors, but the crosses and burdens will become heavier and more burdensome, little one. That is why it is so important to be in constant unity with Me. With Me, nothing will be too great for you to handle. I am strength and peace. I am life. I am graces. I am your Jesus. With My hand in yours, you and I can walk any path, no matter how steep, how narrow, or how rocky. Together, we can do all things. Without Me, you can do nothing.
See how important your life with Me is? See how important your life is to Me? See how important it is for others to know you and call on you for prayer?
Ruth Ann: But Lord, You are making me out to be someone of greater importance.
Jesus: You have been given a special gift. It is so. As you pray for others, I am there with you. So is My Mother. As you touch others in prayer, I too, touch them. Is that not a special grace? So yes child, these truths that have been told to you this day are 'for real.' You do not wish to feel important, and this is good. God loves your humility. That is why He loves you so much. You continue to be untouched by your importance to Him.
Ruth Ann: It is because I realize all my faults and how truly worthless as a human being I am. I feel like a 'low-life', Lord. I am a 'low-life'.
Jesus: Little one, without God, all human beings are 'low-life'. You are growing in leaps and bounds by realizing your unworthiness. This is what God requires of His chosen ones before they can truly be used. It is at this point He can begin to work wonders among His people, because you realize that He is the true giver of life, spiritual, physical, emotional, all life.
Little one, even the very learned do not realize truths that you accept as part of your everyday life. God is the beginning and the end. Without God, man can do nothing. Even prayer, without God, is not of help to anyone. It is prayer from the heart that God listens to, child, so do not hesitate when called on for prayers for others. Pray, child. God is listening, and He will answer your prayers. Sometimes it is not in the way you would wish, so you do not feel that your prayers are any more important than any other person's prayers. Some prayers are answered in such a way that it brings sadness to you, but maybe in bringing sadness to you, it has brought great joy to God. Which is more important, your happiness, or God's?
Ruth Ann: You know what my answer is, Lord. I can cry many tears and have much pain in my heart for others, but I truly wish to make You happy. I want to do Your will, however difficult it may be. As long as You are with me, and continue to love me, what more can I ask for? Lord, I love You.
Jesus: Child, I love you. Have you regained your peace?
Ruth Ann: You know I have, Lord.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Message of August 17, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, I feel a need to speak with You. This has been a very difficult week. Now I understand why I was told by You and Your Mother to take a year's leave. I could never be preparing my classroom and doing workshops, preparing lesson plans, etc., and still do all You have me do. It's all beginning to overwhelm me, Lord. Please help me.
Jesus: Little one, I am here. Do not feel sad.
Ruth Ann: But Lord, I do. It's one thing that I'm giving up my life for You, but my children shouldn't have to suffer as a result. They have careers. They all live and work in this town.
Jesus: Little one, I will care for you and your family. Be not afraid. Have I not told you this before? I will not leave you orphaned.
Ruth Ann: I know You have said this, Lord, but I hear the children and their concerns. I understand where they are coming from. I too, would like to be able to sit and visit with my children in peace. I too, would like to be able to walk outside without feeling like I'm intruding in someone's prayer.
Jesus: Did I not tell you that there would come a time when your peace would be disturbed? The time is here, little one. You must not let this overpower you. You will be given a respite from this feeling. Do not feel overwhelmed. Take your life one day at a time. That is how all My children should do. Know that God is watching over all that you say and do. Be at peace, little one. Thank you for sharing all of your fears and concerns with Me. That in itself helps you to put your life in proper perspective. The dying of self that I have spoken of to you is taking place. You are giving up much for Me, but it is nothing in comparison to what I gave up for all of you.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I am not comparing. I realize the difference.
Jesus: Do you really, little one?
Ruth Ann: I can only imagine, Lord. You are right. I can't possibly know. I can only think in human terms. I am sorry.
Jesus: You must remember little one, when My chosen ones say 'yes' to Me, they bear a heavy burden. It takes much prayer to carry such a heavy burden. You must take what is happening to you one day at a time. Yes, you have much to do, but you are being brought along gradually. You are not to think ahead to the future. You are to deal with the here and now. One day at a time.
You are being attacked by fears, doubts, and concerns for your children, because they too, feel a need to share their feelings with you. You are very sensitive child, and take all they say and do to heart. Let them voice their concerns to you, little one, but always reassure them that God is in control. He will see too, that their burdens will not overcome their strength.
Trust, little one, trust in your God. He does not expect more than His children are able to give. Everything you have expressed to Me this day will be attended to. You will have peace, child. You will have time with your family, and they too, will find the peace and strength to deal with what lies ahead. This will come from Me, child. I expect much from you little one, and in doing so it will affect your family. I will send the strength and graces needed to you and your family. Your husband is a pillar of strength, is he not?
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, to a point of irritation at times. He is so calm and grateful to be able to do all he is doing. It makes me feel ashamed and irritated at times that I can't feel more grateful and less afraid. I guess I'm wanting to feel the joy and peace all the time, not just when I'm ministering to Your people in prayer and listening to You. Also Lord, as the crowds get bigger and bigger, and more and more people want prayer, it is taking forever to get through the prayer lines.
Jesus: Little one, My Mother and I have spoken of this before. I see it is time to remind you, you are taking too much upon yourself. Remember, I do all the work. A gentle touch of your hand, and it is though they are being touched by Me. You need not stand and listen to each individual problem. I know the needs of My children, they need only hold them in their heart. It is true I wish you to give My blessing to those who wish to receive it, but it need not take the time that you are spending in praying with My children.
I am God and can do all things. You need only be obedient. My Mother and I will give out the blessings, graces, and healings, to all those who answer the call to come to this place of special blessings and prayer and peace. When you touch someone in prayer, know that I am touching and healing them in whatever way I choose to heal them. You are not to feel burdened by their physical, spiritual, or emotional needs. I will tend to all their needs. They are My children.
You are only an instrument, a reluctant instrument to be sure, but that will change, little one. As time goes on, that will change. I continue to shower you with graces and blessings, some you are not even aware of, some you are, but know this, little one, the blessings and graces will continue to come to you whether they are acknowledged or not. I love and value your soul beyond your belief or imagination.
I will do all I can to prepare you for your cross. I am with you now, tomorrow, and forever. I will never be away from you. Trust Me, little one, trust Me. Trust Me to tend to your needs, wants, and desires for you, your family, and others. Do not take so much upon yourself. Place all your burdens at the foot of the cross. Any problem you have is Mine. This is something that you forget from time to time, just as all My children do. I want to help with all problems. No problem is too great or small to bring to Me.
Each soul sent from Heaven I wish to tend to, nurture, and watch over to full maturity, till it is at rest with Me in the rewards of eternal life, light, and salvation. The time spent on the earth, in darkness, is a difficult task for many of My children. Some listen, grow, and blossom into beautiful flowers for My garden. Others do not make it to My garden. Some do not listen, and wither from lack of My nurturing. This is their choice. What I want for all My children is that they listen and feel the joy and peace of My love and graces that I shower upon them. I do this through My Mother, and others on the earth, chosen and blessed to share in this nurturing.
Man must have the word of God to grow and stay strong during this time of darkness and struggle between good and evil. He must have those such as you to share all the good God has done in your life. Man needs to hear that God is alive and performing miracles daily. Man must hear that he is not orphaned. I am here waiting to answer any and all prayers. They may not be answered in man's time frame, or in the way man would choose, but I will do what is best for My children. I will see that all is done in My power, that man choose light over darkness. Then, if man walks away, it will be of his own doing. I am giving chances to man that he would not give to one another.
Your souls are at stake children, and I wish not to lose a single one. That is what I want, but I am also realistic and know that some will turn their back on Me and walk away. My Mother is calling out to many. They too, choose to walk away from Her. My representative here on the earth, Pope John Paul II, continues to witness and cry out to the world My desires. He too, is walked away from and told he needs to become 'modern.' Sin is sin. Murder is murder. It does not matter if it is yesterday or today.
Man has a choice, true. He can choose darkness and damnation, or he can choose light and the rewards of eternal life. That is the only choice man has in this world. He can choose good, and let Me into his life, or he can choose evil, and shut Me out forever. I prefer man choose light. It is through the witness of those of My children who have said 'yes,' that many will choose light and goodness.
With this kind of encouraging words child, how can you possibly be concerned about what lies ahead? All that you are going through will give many the chance for eternal life they might otherwise not have had. To know this should help you through the difficult times.
Ruth Ann: Lord, thank You for reminding me. I already feel better and stronger.
Jesus: Child, I know it is difficult, but there will be respites along the way. I too, needed these. I also became discouraged and was given encouraging words by My Mother along the way. I too, took time for prayer when I needed renewal in strength of body, mind, and soul. I have walked the earth. I know the temptations of the evil one. I know there is much darkness to fight against. I also know that God has a divine plan, and His plan is perfect. He is light, life, love, and peace for all time and for all generations. Trust in God, and all will fall into place, little one. Go in My peace that is now a part of you. Call on Me as you need.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Message of April 18, 1994,
Ruth Ann: Lord, thank You for ministering in a mighty way to Your people yesterday.
Jesus: Little one, I am always in complete control. Turn all over to Me, and watch the miracles happen. Isn't that what you have been told many times?
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.
Jesus: Well, that is exactly what I mean. All those who do the complete will of the Father can expect great things to happen in their lives. Trust and have faith, little one. God has a mighty plan in store for you. It is a perfect plan. As you grow and work for Him Who created you and chose you, He will dispense more and greater things for you to do. That is how it works, little one. God will continue to stretch you spiritually. As He does, your cross will become heavier and heavier to bear. You need not be concerned about this, because God never asks more of His children than what they are capable of handling. As you continue to grow, your ministry will grow and change. Much will be asked of you, but it will all be in God's time. Enjoy your time with family at the present, because that time will become less and less. More and more will be spent ministering to My children and their needs. But that will come at the time appointed by God.
Continue to be obedient, pray, fast, and do penance. Daily Mass and Communion is a necessity as you strive for holiness. Confession, too, must be done on a regular basis. Do not lose My peace. If for any reason you should lose My peace, immediately seek to gain it back.
Ruth Ann: Lord, there were many here seeking physical healings yesterday, many with incurable diseases. I sure hope You gave out physical healings yesterday, Lord.
Jesus: Child, I attend to each of My children you touch. I give them exactly what I wish for them to have. For some, it was physical healings. For some, it was spiritual. Others needed peace. Those who came in faith seeking prayer received something from Me, little one. My Mother was busy dispensing graces and blessings. As you prayed, She too, was praying with you, as were many angels and saints. This is a special place of peace and prayer chosen by God. He will see to the needs of His children who come here in faith to pray.
Ruth Ann: Thank You Lord, for these special blessings for those who came. My heart goes out to all of them.
Jesus: I know, child. You care, and that is another reason for your having been chosen. Your total love and giving of self, farm, and time is a beauty to behold. Many could learn from your example of total commit-ment to God's will.
Ruth Ann: Give me the strength to always be willing to do what is asked of me.
Jesus: I will always be there for you. I love you, little one. Go in My peace.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord. I love You.
Message of May 25, 1994,
Ruth Ann: Mother, since You gave me the message this A.M., do You have anything you'd like to add to me, or to others reading this?
Our Lady: Dear child, your Mother is always here to be of help to you or those being attentive to what I have to say. My love and graces go out to each and every one of you. You all struggle so, and how it makes My Mother's heart ache, since it need not be the case. If My children would take the messages that have been given all over the world to heart, there would be no need to struggle. Doing the will of God brings peace in great abundance. It lessens trials and sufferings that, if left to the individuals, become too much for one to bear. Those who bring their sufferings to the foot of the cross and ask for God to share in this suffering, or even offer the suffering for the good of other souls, give purpose to their pain and trials. Not only do they provide graces and blessings for others through their trials, but their burden becomes lighter.
Ruth Ann: That is a beautiful thought, Mother. In prayer, lots of times, I try to offer up the trials I must deal with for the poor souls in purgatory, or for all those who have no one to pray for them.
Our Lady: God hears these prayers, child, and these prayers are put to good use. No prayer goes unheard or unanswered, even those done in anger are listened to by God. All prayer is important. If only more of God's children would take the time to pray. That is of great concern to Me. Even those who listen to God's word in the messages do not always take the time to pray. They say they are too busy to do so. Even a few minutes of time speaking to My Son is better than no prayer at all.
So much prayer is needed to fight the evil in the world. If only My children would take to heart the messages, much could be accomplished for the good of your land, your country, your world. Those who are listening and being attentive know that I appreciate each and every prayer. Continue to have faith. Your prayers will be answered. My Immaculate Heart will triumph over the evil one, and it will be through the prayers of My faithful listeners. It is not just listening, you must hear the word of God and act upon it. So, too, must you hear the words of God in My messages, take them to your heart, and live them.
Now go in the peace of My Son. Love Me, love My Son, and love your neighbor. My love I give to you in great abundance.
Message of June 26, 1994,
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 Feb. 19, 1995,
Ruth Ann: Lord, I am truly anxious to go to the Holy Land. Hopefully, we will have more time for prayer and quiet time than we had last year.
Jesus: Little one, you have expressed that desire as you left the Holy Land, now it has been arranged. Other special graces await you on your return trip to the land of My Birth, Death, and Resurrection. All things happen for a reason. Nothing is done by chance. There is a reason for your return trip. It is all part of the plan. As God's plan unfolds, you will be more and more aware of the 'big picture'. Be patient, little one, know all these things said in prophecy, are to be fulfilled. In God's time, and in God's way, all things will be made known to you.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Jesus: Little one, be at peace with all you are called to do. You have been told change was to be the word that was to dominate your life at this time, and it is change you are experiencing. You have been asked to leave your Wednesday prayer group and St. Charles Church, and change your membership to another church. These things you have done. You are not to concern yourself with the things of the earth. You are to stay focused on Me. You are being molded by many changes that are taking place in your world. You are being asked to accept these changes with peace and love in your heart. God's plan is perfect, little one. More is to come, and you must be ready for all that is to be revealed to you.
Soon the words I speak to you, to share, will be removed from My Children. This too, will be for a reason. You will witness in a new way, and therefore, the weekly testimony will also, be removed. You have been told this many times. And now it is time to share these words with those who are listening, so they will be ready when the time comes for these words from Heaven to cease. You are not being told these things to frighten or cause alarm for My children.
The prayer on the farm will increase, little one. It will grow in leaps and bounds. The words from My Mother have ceased, and still She continues to draw others here to prayer. Many come to hear your witness of God's love and mercy, to one such as you. I know you find this witnessing extremely difficult, child. But it has been instrumental in drawing many here to receive the graces God wishes them to be given.
The 'laying on of hands' has been another gift you have received, and have been asked to share with God's children. The gift of healing is not a gift to be taken lightly, little one. It is a gift for My children. It was given to you to share. What good is a gift if it is kept hidden? Gifts are not to be kept under a bushel, but are to be brought out into the light for all to share. I thank you for being obedient, and sharing this gift.
I thank you for finally being able to pray for those who ask for prayer, without feeling hurt if they do not get the healing they seek. You finally have come to realize that I will give each of My children what they need. You are to let go of their pain and suffering, and know with their faith, I can work in their lives, just as I have worked in yours.
Many of the tasks you have performed have been difficult and humiliating for you, but you have continued on. Your faith, trust, and obedience are truly a beauty to behold. Continue on, little one. Your ministry is about to undergo another change, but know you are ready. I have prepared you, and you have been prepared well. You have been obedient, and receptive to the will of God. You have done all the small tasks set before you. Now, you are about to do even greater things. Know My Mother and I will be with you at all times.
You are at peace, and this peace is not to be removed from you. The struggle is almost over, little one, and now you are to bask in the love and peace that is of God. You will have much to suffer as time goes on, little one, but the peace that will come with this attachment to God Himself will never, never leave you.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord, for these words. Thy will be done, Lord.
