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 stumbling 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 Dec. 1, 1993, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups
My Dear Children,
Thank you for responding to My call. What a blessing you have been to Me. The love you have for My Son is evident in all that you say and do. Continue to witness, My children, to those around you. Do not let them forget the goodness of My Son. By loving and sharing God's goodness with others, the graces and blessings are poured forth upon you, and those whose lives you touch. You have been constant in your love and support of each other. Love one another as I have loved you. In calling you to pray for one another, I am asking you to share this love you have in your heart for all of God's children. When you give love, it is returned a hundredfold, dear children, just as all good things you do for others brings many blessings, so do the prayers said for one another. You have been faithful to My call. And I will, and do, bless you accordingly. God too, is pleased with your efforts to help Me in My plan for the salvation of your fellowman. I love you. Go in the peace of My Son, Jesus, to love and serve Him.
Message of April 20, 1994, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups
My Dear Children,
Love must be at the very center of your existence. I know you have great love for Me and My Son. But this love must extend to all those around you. Without love for one another, there can be no peace in your world. This world continues to be ripped and torn by the one who is of darkness. The evil one wishes to destroy every fiber of goodness. Good Christian values have nearly become extinct. In this, the year of the family, let My children pull together and unite in prayer to bring God back into focus as the central most important aspect of family life. The saying of years past, 'the family that prays together, stays together' was true then, and it is true now. Pray dear children that God helps you understand the importance of what is being said to you. I love you. Go in My Son's peace.
Message of Dec. 28, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, I'm wondering what today will bring. I've had my prayers answered each day. You continue to bless and reassure me. Why?
Jesus: Little one, you have done and continue to do much for Me. Have I not told you, you would receive a little miracle each day?
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord, You have. But some of these are not such 'little miracles', and some I've only thought about for an instant. I haven't really spent much time in prayer asking for these things. I have a kind of wish or desire that comes into my mind, and the next thing I know, whatever it is I have thought about, has been done.
Jesus: Little one, many would say these are just 'coincidences'. You have realized that God is at the root of all that man can say and do. I am a part of man's most inner being. I know all your thoughts, desires, hopes, and dreams. I know your heart.
Ruth Ann: I just want You to know, I have noticed all You have been doing, and I wish to thank You. Your kindness overwhelms me.
Jesus: Little one, I appreciate your taking the time to thank and acknowledge these little gifts to you. I do these things for all of My children, but they don't always take the time to thank Me. Most don't even acknowledge that I have been a part in those special blessings. They consider them to be coincidences.
Ruth Ann: I have learned there is so much of our lives that could only come about through Your providential care, Lord.
Jesus: Little one, you have learned much. You have learned that all things can and will be done for the greater honor and glory of God when you give your life, problems, and concerns over to Me. No problem is too great or too small for Me to attend to, if it is important to you, it is important to Me. Remember, I am the caregiver to all My children. I wish what is best for all My children. Sometimes the 'something best' does not coincide with what My children desire. Then, it is to be accepted as God's will. This is difficult for man to accept, especially in a society that is brought up to believe that their wants and needs are more important than the wants and needs of others.
Many of My children have strayed from the commandment of God, 'to love God and thy neighbor as thyself for the love of God'. That is the greatest commandment, but it is difficult for My children to follow. Man puts himself and his selfish desires first, and tends to ignore the needs of others. God has no place in these kinds of lives. I have been shut out and ignored, but I continually stand at the door, knocking, waiting for man to answer. By little 'signs' and blessings I continue to say to My children, "I am here, ready and waiting for you to answer." That is why those who seek Me, find Me. I am patiently waiting for that first little sign of acknow-ledgment by My children, so I can come into their lives in a mighty way. God loves you. Have you not heard these words over and over, spoken by My Mother?
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, I have, and I know others have also.
Jesus: These words are extremely important words. These are not just for My children who are 'good'. It is for all My children; the good, bad, and the indifferent. You are all loved by God. I did not come to the earth for the 'good'. I came to the earth to save the sinner. I came to die on the cross so all would have the gift of eternal life at their fingertips. All they have to do is claim the gift I have already given to them. I cannot do that for them, the claiming. It must be done by each individual in God's time. Those of you who await answers to prayers for those family members and friends who have not claimed this gift, have faith. God works in His time, for the good of all His children. Be patient and continue to pray. God is listening.
Ruth Ann: I do realize that, Lord. I am writing these words so others, too, will realize.
Jesus: I thank you for taking the time to do so little one. It is not for your good that you do this, and all in Heaven realize this. Many graces are being poured out upon you and those who read these words and take them to their heart. You could be resting at this time of the morning. Instead, you are listening and writing what I am saying to you, so that others can share in the goodness and greatness of God's love.
Ruth Ann: Thank You for talking to me, Lord. I couldn't write if You had not given me the gift of Your words. If you were not speaking with me, I could have nothing to say, so it is my gift, Lord.
Jesus: And you are Mine, little one. I thank you for caring about your brothers and sisters. I thank you for living the commandment, 'Love God, and thy neighbor as thyself for the love of God'. I know it is not easy for you to give up so much of yourself to others, and I thank and bless you for your unselfishness. Now, I will leave you to the rest of your day. Know that I am with you, as is My blessing.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Message of Jan. 25, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, I know You are with me. Please give me the graces to do all You would have me do.
Jesus: Little one, this is something about which you need not be concerned. All those who choose to do the will of God have sufficient graces and strength to do so. You, child, have chosen to take a firm stand concerning your faith and trust in God. As a result of this, the graces will be yours in abundance. This does not mean that all will go easily, or there will not be suffering and persecution for you and your family. But child, it means as you walk this long, difficult path, there will be help along the way. There will be help in the way of little miracles, 'helping hands', and special blessings granted to you. These are rewards for doing the will of God and has always been a means of sustaining those who witness to the goodness and love of their Creator.
Ruth Ann: Why is this so difficult for some to accept, Lord? The things I am telling are actual facts. I would not tell them if they were not. It's not easy for me to do, but I do it because I wish to be obedient. If it touches only one heart, it is worth the anguish I am put through before each talk.
Jesus: Child, many do not wish to hear what you have to say because it means once they believe and their hearts are touched, they must change their way of living. A life full of materialism, noise, and the importance of self-worth will need to be changed. Their whole world will be turned upside down. I will have to come first, and all else will have to be prioritized accordingly. To a people steeped in darkness, where true value of one's worth is based on how much one has accumulated, this is going to be quite a shock. It isn't how much one has accumulated, but how one uses what I have allowed them to accumulate. Those who are wealthy have an obligation to share what they have with those who have nothing. Those who have much, have much to share. Those who have little, have little to share.
'Love one another', does not only mean love from the heart. It means show your love, do good works for your neighbor. Man has shut himself off from his neighbor. There are many reasons for this. Man has become so busy in his own little world, he ignores those around him and doesn't even realize there are others that need tending to. He has only time for himself, and his wants, and his needs. If you love My children, you will see to their needs. No one need be hungry, cold, or without clothing or shelter in a land of plenty such as yours.
Sadness fills My heart for the truly poor of this world, to see them so downtrodden and without hope. These are those I love most, the very least of My children. When I came to the earth, I did not come to a family of wealth. I came to live among the humble and poor of the world. It is true, the poor you will always have with you, but it is a reminder to all of those who have more, that what they have is to be shared.
When I speak of My children sharing what they have with their brothers and sisters, it can also be faith. It can be witnessing to the good God does in your life. There are many ways to show love for one another. It is not always through money or monetary gifts. It can be through a kindness, such as a kind word to someone who is in need of such. It can be talking with someone who is lonely. Man is not saved through faith alone. Good works are truly a part of this journey of faith. You cannot ignore the needs of those around you, and still consider yourself doing the will of God. God wills that we love Him and our neighbor as ourself for the love of Him.
Loving is caring and sharing, children. All of you have something to share, whether it be time, money, faith, love, or a talent given to you by God. Many are in need. They hunger and thirst, many for those things that keep the body alive, but even more importantly, for those things that keep the soul alive. You, child, in sharing these words with others, open hearts and eyes that are closed to the needs of others.
Continue to share in word and deed all I am telling you. In this way, you are tending to all of the needs of My children, and most importantly, hearts are being touched, and lives are being changed. That should please you, little one. It surely pleases Me.
Ruth Ann: That is what counts, Lord.
Jesus: Continue to witness, little one. I will supply the graces needed as you continue on this important journey put before you by your God.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord. Be with me and my family throughout the day and week.
Jesus: Yes, child. Go in My peace.
Message of Feb. 3, 1994, from Our Lord, Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, I keep hearing people talk about horrible things to come, predictions that are for the immediate future, I mean in a few short months. Why have I not been told these things that others seem to know?
Jesus: Little one, be at peace. You have been told those things God would have you know. He has much for you to do, little one, be not afraid.
Ruth Ann: Lord, it's not that I am afraid, at least not for me.
Jesus: Child, if more of My children would focus on the main thrust of the messages, they would realize that, yes, the world is in a mess, and yes, it's going to take much prayer and the grace of God to clean up this mess. Little one, the world is in need of a purification before your Jesus can return to the earth. My coming is eminent, little one. All has been set in motion, but there is much to be done before this can come about. There must be a cleansing. My children are in need of drastic measures to bring them back on the right path and away from the ways of the world. Many are being brought back through those such as you, willing to set your life aside in order to save others.
Ruth Ann: But Lord, my life is Yours. I have no right to usurp Your authority over my life. You gave me life, and are free to take it as You wish. You are also free to do with it as You see fit.
Jesus: Little one, that is because you have turned your will over to Mine. You have said, "Thy will be done."
Ruth Ann: Lord, the motives are selfish. You keep saying over and over You want us to do Your will and not ours. Who am I to say 'no' to You? If it is to gain me eternal salvation, and You have said it will, then I am not about to say 'no'. There are times when I think, 'What have I done? There is no turning back'. But that is only temporary. If I can help You save only one soul, then that is one that will pray for me after that soul reaches heaven. My motives are probably not completely pure, Lord. I want to gain heaven.
Jesus: Little one, you make me smile. You think you are being 'tough' and you have a heart of gold. I know you, little one. Because you have sinned, you have a difficult time seeing past your sins. You have been forgiven for your sins, and yes, you will sin again and again, because you are not perfect and will never be so until you are with Me, but you have come a long way. Many who know you, and realize what you have given up, have seen the change in you. Not many would have made such a commitment on faith alone, child. You and your husband have given up your jobs, your home, your farm, your lives, for Me. What faith, little one! You are doing these things because you have been asked to do them by Me and by My Mother. You have trusted that We will care for you, and you have no doubts that We will. What faith! How you fill My heart with joy, little one.
Ruth Ann: It, my faith that is, has come from You, Lord. You placed me where I was to grow up and You have molded me. I take no credit.
Lord, someone asked me about earning heaven. I know I am changing the subject, but could You elaborate on that?
Jesus: Little one, of course My children earn heaven. Why do you think there are the Ten Commandments? The right to heaven has been earned by My death on the cross, but you, too, must participate in gaining your eternal reward. It is not just handed to you because you have been baptized a Christian, or because you go to church. There is much more to it than that. Faith without works does not give you all you would hope for. You have been told to love your neighbors, but that does not mean just in your heart. You must take it a step farther. You must care for the needs of your neighbor and not wish to do them harm. You are told to love God, but loving is not enough. You must show your love for Me by being willing to do what is required of you. So yes, child, the right to heaven has been earned by My death on the cross, but you must pick up your cross, whatever it may be, and follow Me. In this way you earn, or gain heaven.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord, for expanding on that particular point.
Jesus: Little one, live each day at a time. Do not look to the future. As I have said, God has much for you to do. Listen and be obedient to what He would have you do. Your ministry will continue to grow and reach out to many. Through your faith and sacrifices, many souls will be healed and brought back to God. Continue on this journey of faith, little one, knowing full well I am with you until the end.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Message of Jan. 4, 1995, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, that was not at all what I would have ex-pected, 'share your gifts'.
Our Lady: Little child, do you not realize that this message is to encourage all those who contin-ually refuse to share the many gifts that God has given them? You, of all people, should realize the importance of this sharing, and you also should realize the difficulty in sharing. Does your sharing get any easier for you?
Ruth Ann: No Mother, it doesn't.
Our Lady: There are many times you would like to forget that God has ever given you this special gift. You have been allowed to experience the special gift of hearing voices from Heaven, and yet, rather than share, you would like to forget this has ever happened to you. You would prefer not to share these words with others. Only they were not given just for you. If that had been the case, they would never have been given. Gifts are given to share, so that others too, may grow in God's love. In sharing your gifts, hearts are touched and brought closer to God. Any time a gift of love is shared with someone, whether it be a kindness of word or deed, good will come from it.
Love one another, children. I know this is difficult for some of you, because many of you have been hurt by others. Allow God to use this hurt to the betterment of mankind. You still do not realize that God can take the bad things that have happened in your life, and use them for His greater honor and glory. You must be patient, and watch this be done. It will be done, little children, in His way, and in His time. God has a way of out-giving and out-blessing each of His children. Those who remain faithful, and faith-filled, will not be abandoned. God loves you, and through this love, wants to show you just how much He cares for you, and all your needs.
Trust, little children, and know that God is watching over each one of you. He has not, and will not, abandon you. I am your Mother, sent here to draw you back to, and closer to, the gift He has given to you, of His only Son. If he loves you so much as to sacrifice His Son for you, would He abandon you in your hours of need? This would never be. Know that God loves you, and wishes you to be at peace with all that has happened, and will continue to happen in your life.
Ruth Ann: Mother, I am having a difficult time with this right now. My Pastor, spiritual director, and friend, has been removed from our church. How can I be at peace when I feel like my insides have been ripped out? This has been done with so much cruelty, that it is difficult for those who love him.
Our Lady: Child, it has been difficult for him also. Have you not stood by and watched how well he has handled this cross? Have you not learned anything from him in this hurt that he suffers? You speak of your hurt, and your pain. What of his hurt, and his pain? His life has been turned upside down, too, child. And after his studies in the Holy Land, he does not know where God will lead him. And God will lead him, because of his great strength and trust.
Trust, child, trust is what you must remember. It is true, you are experiencing change in your life, and you are not comfortable with change. But how can one grow without it? Be at peace, child, and know that in God's wisdom and mercy, there is a reason and a plan. Learn from the example of your priest. Trust that God will tend to all things. Through pain, suffering, and tears, comes a healing and a strength that had not been there before. Trust, child, and let God tend to all your hurts and needs.
Great blessings are in store for you and your priest. A door is never closed without another being opened. As this door is closed, so too, will another door be opened. God will not be outdone in His gifts for those who love Him. Be at peace little one, and know that God loves you. I am your Mother, and I am praying with you for all your needs. Dry your tears. Great blessings await you.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother, for being here to encourage me, and all those who are hurting over the loss of our priest.
Message of Nov. 20, 1994, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups
My Dear Children,
I wish to thank you for gathering together in prayer. 'Be it done to Me according to Thy word'. These words were spoken by Me to God the Father many years ago. Now it is time for these words to be repeated. God has allowed Me to come to the earth to minister to His children to draw them away from the world and back to His Son. He has allowed Me to speak to, and through, many of His chosen ones. Soon the messages you have been receiving here will cease. I must decrease and My Son must increase.
I have come to point the way to My Son. Those of you who have listened and taken to heart the words being spoken to you, have been of great help to Me with your prayers. These prayers must continue. Many of My children are still in need of conversion. Many of My children feel that because they attend the church of their choice weekly, they are not in need of conversion. There is more to conversion than going to church. A true conversion comes when you have decided to follow Jesus, no matter what the price.
You were created by God for a reason. Many of you forget this. You were put on the earth to know, love, and serve God, and to be happy with Him in Heaven for all eternity. Many of you do not know God. Many do not love Him as your Supreme, Divine, Creator of all things. Many of you do not serve Him. How can that be? It is reflected in the way you treat one another. Love God and your neighbor as yourself for the love of God. It is the greatest of all commandments. These are not just words, dear children, these are a blueprint for your salvation.
The words I have spoken to you over and over, are words that have been spoken to you before. I have not been giving you any new revelations. God has been good to you. He loves you and wishes for you to find peace in your heart, lives, and world. Peace will not come to a world filled with hatred for one another. Change your hearts. Find forgiveness in your hearts for all those who do you harm. Love one another. Be at peace with one another. Then, and only then, can a true conversion begin in your heart. I wish this peace for you. God wishes this peace for you. Pray, dear children, for God's mercy to be given out in abundance to all those who choose to ignore Him and blatantly flaunt their sinfulness in His face.
God is a God of mercy, but He is also a God of justice. As any good parent should do, He must discipline those who continue to live their lives doing only those things that are bringing them pleasure, and ignoring the feelings of others. In using your free will, many of you have made choices, not for God, but instead you have chosen to live your lives according to the world. Your world is full of evil. It is full of darkness. You must choose to live your lives following the example of His Son and My Son, Jesus. This is the supreme example put before you for your good. God loves you and I love you. You must pray!
