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 August 10, 1994, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, do You wish to add anything in addition to the message?
Our Lady: Child, My children need to listen to the messages already being given. Many say they are repetitious, but how do you teach little ones, except by repeating what you wish for them to learn and take to their heart? I repeat over and over, and still many do not listen, and those who are listening do not take the messages to heart and live them. Only a few are taking anything being said, seriously. So many souls are in danger of being lost, and still they do not listen. What must I do to have My children take the messages to heart? I can only offer the gift of Life. I cannot force it upon those who choose not to accept it. Much prayer and sacrifice are needed by My children who are listening.
Ruth Ann: In looking around, Mother, I truly feel this is a lost cause. The world is in such a mess, and most people do not even realize there is a real problem here, or that prayer can change things.
Our Lady: You are right in one sense child, many ignore there is a problem, because if they choose to believe there is a problem, then they must also choose to know there is a solution. All problems must be solved. The solution to this problem is simple, turn back to God. What is so sad, many would say they haven't turned away from Him. They think they are being faithful to God by attending Mass on Sundays. Those same people go out all week and do not give God a second thought, or His commandment to love Him and your neighbor. It takes more than one hour a week spent in a church, to save your soul. Granted, it is better than nothing, but there is much more to be done.
Pray, My children, for hearts to be touched and broken open, so that each of God's children are aware of Him every waking moment, in the sunrise, the flowers, the trees, the rain, the wind, and the animals. All things come from God. Little ones' lives are being destroyed because no one values all God has created. Nature, life, there is no respect for either. Man pollutes and destroys the very earth on which he lives. He destroys the very air he breathes, and life is no longer respected. Children are abused, maimed, and killed all over the world. Why? Because man has put God out of his life as the Giver of these gifts. He instead says, it is man's choice to destroy life in any form or stage of existence. Sad, but true, child, the world has, and continues to turn it's back on the very Author and Creator of all that is seen and unseen to those who live on this earth.
More concern is given over the loss of a historical landmark than over the murder of an innocent victim. I am speaking of the unborn children who continue to be slaughtered, in the name of it being best for that life not to exist. Who has chosen to make that decision? Certainly not the child, and certainly not the Creator of all life. No, it is through greed, selfishness, and all that is unholy, that these decisions are made. Your world has much to answer for, because so many stand back and allow these things to take place, without so much as a whimper of protest from those of you who know this is wrong. There is so much to be done child, and so little time in which to do it.
I am in need of many to pray, and take to heart the messages being given at this time of crisis in your world. It is time for man to sit up and take notice, and do something about all those things he can change. Those things he can't change must be bombarded with prayer and sacrifice. Why do My children not listen? Why do they not realize the seriousness with which I come to this earth? I would not be here speaking to so many, if what I am saying was not so important. Listen, and take to heart, the words being spoken to you. Recognize that the only hope for your world is through prayer. Listen, and heed the word of God.
Message of March 26, 1994, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, for some reason I feel You wish to speak with me today.
Our Lady: Child, yes I do. You do realize that much prayer is needed at this time.
Ruth Ann: Yes Mother, but that is always true. You continually tell us that.
Our Lady: I am wondering where all of My children are, who in the beginning took My messages so seriously. I am wondering where all those who were touched by My many messages and appearances all over the world have gone. There is great sadness in My heart for you, My children, for those things I have told you in the messages of 1990. The daily ones have not been taken to heart. Many continue to hear the words but do not take them to their hearts.
I have told you before, you were only a footstep away from war and depravation. Now I am telling you that all those things are being set into motion that were revealed to you earlier. Where is your concern for life? Where is your concern for religious freedom? Where is God in your country? The love for God and religious values are no longer a part of your way of life. You, My children, continue to pull further and further away from God. Man thinks that by hiding his head in the sand, he will not experience those things that he has been warned against. How can man be so blind?
God is angry! He is tired of watching His children kill and maim one another. He is tired of the murdering of the unborn. Your country always chose to protect life and the God-given rights of others. Now you choose to destroy life and protect rights that are of the evil one. This is displeasing to the One Who created life and has blessed your country with a great abundance of all good things. My little children, when will you awaken from your sleep and know that the hand of God can no longer be held back? Man is destroying himself through his own selfish desires.
Wake up, little children! Know God will not allow this to continue. Man will have to pay the price for his lust, greed, and self-love. Pray, dear children. Pray for all those who continue to mock God and turn away from the laws of God and nature. Take what I am saying to your hearts. Ask the Holy Spirit to enlighten all those around you to the seriousness of My messages. God loves you, but He will not watch His land and people continue to turn away from Him and worship false gods. He will not stand by and watch His innocent little ones continue to be murdered in their mother's wombs. The stench of the evil one is all around you, little children, and you pretend not to notice.
Give your hearts to Me. Let Me help you. Let Me bring you out of darkness and to My Son who is light and goodness. As your hearts are changed, you will awaken from this darkness. You will step into the light and peace which can only come from God. My Son awaits you and so do I. Please, dear children, pray!
Message of Nov. 28, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, I'm here, ready to listen.
Jesus: I am grateful, little one. There is much that needs to be said. So many of My children are choosing to ignore the signs being given to them. They choose to hide their heads in the sand. There is a reason for this, however. It is because if they acknowledge that they are living in the 'end times', they will have to change their lives. It will mean, in most instances, that whole lifestyles will have to be changed in order for a true conversion to take place. You and your husband have already experienced that. You have said many times, your life has been 'turned upside down'.
Ruth Ann: It is true, Lord. We have had to make time for things we never dreamed of, and then on top of that, we try to pray as much as possible. It seems any more, when my mind is free, I'm finding myself in prayer for someone.
Jesus: Little one, I have said that I am to become the focus of your entire life, and you are to be consumed with the desire to pray more and more.
Ruth Ann: Well, Lord, I think You've gotten me there. I seem to be consumed with wanting to help with all the needs of others. There is so much pain and suffering, Lord, and Your Mother keeps calling us to prayer. I know it's necessary, just as I know something of tremendous importance is about to happen, or You would not be talking with me. I am no one, and don't deserve this kind of attention from You or Your Mother.
Jesus: All of My children deserve the opportunity to save their immortal soul, and you are wrong to say that you are 'no one'. At the moment of conception, when God breathed life into your immortal soul, you were someone. You are a soul ready to begin its journey back to God. That is why all life is so important. Each individual life is important. Each gift of life has a purpose to fulfill on its journey back to the One Who is its Creator. Each soul has a purpose. God has a perfect plan. He does not place children upon the earth for no reason. He is not man, who does things on whims, or because he feels like it. All life has purpose. That is why the despicable crime of abortion is so against all that God stands for. You cannot be a true Christian and believe that you have the right, as a human being, to take a life, no matter what the circum-stances. Man can rationalize all he wants, but murder is murder.
There are groups who work to protect the rights of animals, and to stop the mistreatment of animals. This is a good thing, for God wishes these gifts given to man to be treated with kindness and goodness. If it is important to protect the animals of the world, put here for man's proper use, then how much more important is it to protect the life of the unborn? Life is life, from the moment of conception until the last breath is taken, and that life returns to Me Who has created it.
Man can rationalize, make excuses, say they have the right to destroy life, but your life is not your own. Your life belongs to God. Why do you think it is so important to do His will? That's your purpose for being given life. Many say they didn't ask to be born. This is true. God has made that choice for you. He has created you, and He wants to see you live your life doing good deeds, fulfilling your purpose for being given this gift of life.
You cannot rationalize murder. Many are horrified when a small child is murdered or abused in any way, as they should be, but these same people think nothing of destroying a tiny baby inside the one protective shelter of it's mother's womb. If they had to hear the cries of the unborn as they are being torn to shreds, as My Mother and I do, they would think twice about the horrendous crimes that are being made in the name of democracy, of change, of freedom. There is no freedom in a country where life has no value.
Darkness consumes your land, little one, and those who are thriving on this darkness are not even aware of it. Satan has taken over your land. The spiritual war between good and evil is in progress, and evil is at its peak, little one. Everywhere you turn there are crimes of all sorts. No one is safe from the destruction that is going on around them, and rightly so. You have let evil have the upper hand.
It is time, little one, for all to put their lives in order. It is time to set aside the evil desires of the world, and turn back to God. Seek the face of God and live. Those of you who are heeding My words, and the words of My Mother, are being given time to listen and prepare. Those who ignore these warnings, it will be their loss. All should live each day prepared to meet their Maker. You know not the day or the hour of My Second Coming. Prepare while there is still time to do so. Turn your lives around and live as God would have you live.
I have said this many times, and I am wasting My time and yours in many cases. But if each time I speak these words, only one soul hears and begins the journey back to Me, then all you are doing is of great importance. Listen, and share what I am saying, little one. My Mother and I will do the rest.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord. I love You.
Message of Nov. 27, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord.
Jesus: Yes, little one. I am here waiting.
Ruth Ann: Thank You for a good day with our children and grandchildren. We have so much to be thankful for, Lord. Help me never to take any of what we have for granted. Sometimes when I watch the news I think, how can one country be blessed with so much, and other countries with so little?
Jesus: Your country has been blessed, child, with more than most. Your country was so blessed because it shared what it was given to help others. There was concern for your brothers and sisters of other nations. Now, there is more concern for materialism and what you want, than the needs of others even, to the point of killing the unborn if the child interferes with what is going on in that person's life. What has happened to My children? Why do they have such disregard for life? It has not happened overnight, it has been a gradual process. Man has been deceived by the evil one through the media. When you are bombarded, over and over, with things that corrupt and break down the very fiber of your country on a daily basis, how can one stand alone and fight back? It is very difficult. That is why My Mother has been sent here to you. She has been visible to many in other countries for many years.
Yours is a very young country, but you have very quickly destroyed much of the good that your nation was founded upon. To think, one reason why many came to this country was to establish a place to worship and love their God without persecutions. What a beautiful reason to want to found and build a country! Man has quickly forgotten the desires and purpose for which he came. It quickly became a place to become rich. It's interesting how money, riches, greed, quickly entered the picture. Where do you suppose that came from? It is not from Me, little one. I have taught My children to live simply, by My example.
God could have chosen anyone to have, and raise, His Child. He chose someone who had very little. He chose good, humble people in very poor surroundings, with much love to tend and raise His Child. By an example, He has shown you the importance of materialism and where it fits in the big picture as far as He is concerned. God does not place a very high priority on 'things'. Money and wealth are made available to some, but it is to see what they will do with it. It is given, not to hoard and accumu-late more, but to share with others what has been given.
Make no mistake about it, everything you have, and are, comes from God. You have done nothing on your own. God allows certain things to happen in your lives, and you either learn and grow from these experiences, or you do not. Hopefully, even the bad that happens in your life will be used for good. But this depends upon you and your faith and trust in God, your Creator. It depends upon how deep the roots of your faith have been able to take hold and grow. Is your faith a deep, lasting faith that can withstand the storms of life without the roots being pulled out from the soil and washed away by the flood of moral decay?
I'm afraid that is what has happened in your country. 'Things' have become more important than life, not only the life of each other, and your own life, but those who have no voice to speak out, the lives of the unborn have been totally disregarded. Man forgets Who has given you life. God gives life, and only He has the right to remove you from the earth, whenever He is ready. It is not your choice to make, for you, or for anyone else. Only God can make that decision. Again, money, inconvenience, disregard for the rights of others comes into play. Why? Because, little one, values have been destroyed in your country. Good, wholesome, healthy values have been stepped on and thrown into the sewer.
God is watching what man is doing, and continues to do, with what He has given him. As a good Father, He will not stand by and watch much longer. Already man is experiencing His indignation at a nation who is deliberately turning away from God.
Little one, much prayer and sacrifice is needed for your country. My Mother is here to call to Her children while there is still time to do so. She is here to draw Her children away from the ways and evils of the world, and back to prayer. Focus on the light and peace of Her Son. She keeps telling Her children, "Come back to Him, before it is to late. God loves you. God loves you, but hates your sins." I have died for you, to save you from your sins and the corruption of the world. Heed the words of My Mother while there is still time.
Ruth Ann: Lord, the entire world is a mess.
Jesus: It is not the world, child, it is the people in the world who have turned their backs on God, who have created this deplorable situation. Listen to the voice of One crying out in this desert without peace, love, and joy. Listen and heed, children, My Mother is calling to you, calling you away from the ways of the world and back to the grace of eternal salvation. Listen, and heed Her messages. Take them to your heart before it is too late. God loves you. One Who loves must also discipline. Listen to what is being said to you children by so many, in so many ways. Listen and pray. God's peace be with you.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord. Thank You.
Message of July 7, 1993, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, You had much to tell me yesterday, and I had nothing to write with at the time. You said You would repeat it for me. Is this a good time for You to do so?
Our Lady: Child, of course. I will speak of all I have addressed earlier.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother.
Our Lady: Child, it is so important for you to listen to all We are saying so you can share Our words with others.
Ruth Ann: A lot of what You told me yesterday was of a personal nature.
Our Lady: Yes, but most of it had to do with the farm and its future use, did it not?
Ruth Ann: Yes, Mother.
Our Lady: The things you are being told child, are of God. I have told you before, this place would become a shrine to Me and My Son. Now you are beginning to see just how this is to come about. There will be a retreat house here, and it will be manned by retired priests. This too, will come about. You continue to be amazed, but remember, God can do all things, and for those who love Him, and are called to His plan, all works out for good. They will know them by their fruits. You must not concern yourself with those who have chosen the wrong path. All men have a free will. Man can choose to do the will of God, or the will of the one who has control over the earth. Some find it easier to do those things they wish to do. Easier, is not always the way of truth and life.
Ruth Ann: I have found that out.
Our Lady: You have expressed a concern that your life is so intense with all that is happening, and your concern with the hurts and needs of others, that you do not laugh any more.
Ruth Ann: Mother, I didn't realize how intense my life had become until I went to my class reunion, and a couple of my classmates who sat across from me at dinner, had me in stitches most of the dinner. It felt good to laugh and act normal for a change.
Our Lady: You are right child, in realizing your life has become intense, as you say. The way of the cross is just that. There are more tears and suffering than reasons for laughter and joy. Soon you will have a reason for laughter and joy. The birth of your grandson will bring much joy to your family. There is nothing like a baby to bring smiles and laughter to minds and hearts of all those participating in the great gift of love God has for His children. Babies are so very special. Babies used to be considered a blessing from God. Now in a society of materialism, they have become a curse to many. So much so, they destroy life without concern. How My heart bleeds for My children who have chosen to believe they have the right to kill an unborn baby. Life is life from the moment of conception to the time of delivery. That tiny human being has, and is, life. No one has the right to take away that life but the One Who gave it, God. Man has so much to be sorry for. Man must repent of these horrendous crimes against the love of God.
Ruth Ann: I am sorry about all the abortions that are being done. We continue to pray for an end.
Our Lady: Pray too, for God's mercy on all those who continue to believe that it is not a moral issue. They hide their heads in the sand. Soon they will face God, and then it will be too late to be sorry for the crimes they have committed against God and His little ones.
Ruth Ann: I am grateful for our grandchildren.
Our Lady: Many children have health problems that will never be corrected. But even those child-ren have a purpose in God's plan. Through some children who are handicapped, God touches hearts and conversions take place. God's plans are perfect, as is His timing. All things fall into place when, and however God wishes. Man must be patient for God's plan to work. That is not always easy in a world where instant gratification is of the utmost importance. Child, there will be tears and pain ahead, but there will also be love and laughter. Where there are children, there will always be joy and laughter.
I know you have much to do today. I will speak to you about some of the other things I have told you at another time. Go in My Son's peace.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother.
Message of June 8, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Jesus.
Jesus: Yes, little one.
Ruth Ann: This is a glorious day.
Jesus: Yes, little one, it is.
Ruth Ann: For many reasons, Lord, the responsibility of teaching has been lifted from my shoulders, and You know I would not have chosen to leave teaching for years to come. You placed that desire in my heart many years ago, when I was a young child. That was one of the reasons I wanted to be a nun, so I could teach. I knew our family was so poor, I could not afford the necessary college education. Thank You for being understanding of how important it was to me. I appreciate You making it possible for me to go to college after all my children were in school. It was extremely difficult, but it was worth the pleasure I received in being of help to all those little children. Financially, it made it possible for our children to receive a college degree. That was extremely important to me.
Jesus: Child, I know how important all these things were to you. It was all part of the plan.
Ruth Ann: Thinking back on all these happenings, I know it was only through You that we are even living in Bloomington, Indiana.
Jesus: Yes, this is true.
Ruth Ann: I really am not the least bit unhappy about the leave I'm taking, and I'm sure in my heart it will be permanent.
Jesus: Little one, take it all one day at a time, and bask in My love. Let it permeate your very being. I am peace, love, and trust. You have given yourself to Me, and now I am giving you time with your family and time to pray, the two things that are desires of your heart. I have made these things possible for you, little one.
Ruth Ann: I was feeling so happy and proud to be able to end the school year without shedding a tear, and looking forward to the next phase in my life, and now I am crying, Lord.
Jesus: But for the right reasons, little one. These are tears of gratitude for being allowed to accomplish on earth all the desires of your heart. You have never asked for much, child. Only to be a good wife, mother, and be able to provide all the needs for your children. You realize something that many of My children still have to realize. Children are a gift from God. They are on loan to be nurtured and cared for, to be presented back to Me in better condition than when they were given. That means lots of tender, loving care, and many prayers and sacrifices. A true, loving parent puts the care of their children before all other needs. Man has forgotten all this. Man believes the children are just one more possession to either keep or dispose of, if it is not convenient for man to keep the child I have sent them. Then it is murdered, before it takes its first breath. It is snuffed out like a tiny flame before it has given its first light. Oh, how it makes My heart ache and break for My children who have turned to darkness out of lust and greed. For some, it is out of inconvenience, they kill My little ones. For others, it is out of greed for power and money. God sees each death as a personal attack upon His heart, and each one will cause much grief to this world ruled by darkness. That is not for your concern, little one, your concern is one of prayer. As you have said, you have finished one phase of your life, and you are excited and antici-pating a last phase. If you would have your heart's desire, you would be with Me now, but that is not to be yet, little one. You have much to do for Me and many of My children here on the earth. There is much work for you to do, so you will not be a 'lady of leisure' as some would call it. You are being given a kind of respite before you become extremely busy. Many are in need of your faith, trust, and encouragement, little one. Many are in need of My peace. This can be had through you and the place of peace and prayer. This is only part of it, little one, the tip of the iceberg. It is good you cannot see the largeness of your mission. It will grow gradually, and then in leaps and bounds. God will see to that. Now, I know you must go, and we will have many days ahead for speaking with one another. You have your room to prepare for your replacement. I will choose someone loving and caring, so that the children who would have been given to you will have the same tender, loving care. Know God is in control, little one, He does not take away, He gives, and He gives much in His infinite wisdom and mercy.
Ruth Ann: I will speak with You more later, Lord. Thanks for these years of teaching and for allowing me to help with our children's education.
Jesus: Little one, you were given much, and you have used it wisely. You will continue to do so.
