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 3, 1993, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups
My Dear Children,
What must I do to help My children realize the importance of My messages? God is a God of love, He also is a God of mercy, but time is running out! God's love and mercy is only for a time that only He knows. After that, He will be a God of justice! All those who feel they can do whatever they wish with their lives, and the lives of others, are going to have much to answer for. Dear children, I love each of you and want the conversion of all my children. Pray! Pray dear children, for all those who are still in need of conversion. It is not too late while God's graces and mercy are being poured out like water on a thirsty garden. We must take advantage of this great abundance. Those of you who are listening must help me with your prayers, so that others will be converted. Go in God's peace dear children, but do not forget the needs of all your brothers and sisters.
Ruth Ann: Jesus, You have said if I would come up to the hill, You would see that I was alone so that You could speak with me. Is there any particular reason?
Jesus: Child, you had spoken of losing your peace, and not having quiet time. I am wanting to return it to you.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Jesus: Child, I am always with you. Why do you fret so, when you have a few minutes when your peace is destroyed or interrupted? All you need do, is take the time to speak with Me, and your peace will be returned.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I'm just human enough to look at all my confusion, busy schedule, and forget that You will come to my aid. I must learn to put You first at all times. I know and hear that Lord, but I don't always remember to do so. Forgive me, Lord.
Jesus: Child, you are forgiven. It is something that all of My children do. When something happens to upset them, they feel the need to solve the problem in their way. It would be so much easier if they would give the problem to Me and let Me take care of it, especially if it is a problem disruptive to their peace.
Child, I know this life is not easy. This is a time of darkness. The evil one is everywhere. He is at the height of his destructiveness. He will continue to maim, kill, and confuse My children. He will continue to tempt them with promises of success and riches, but none of these will bring peace to My children. That is because God is peace. He is not things. Until man realizes that God comes first, then all other things will fall into place. Family, friends, jobs, and so forth, will fall into the proper order.
My children continue to measure success by 'how big,' or 'how many.' These only cause more concern. The less you have, the less you are concerned about what you will lose. And children, the material things will be lost. In the end, nothing truly matters except your eternal soul. That is all there is, and should be, for you to be concerned about.
God loves you so much, little child, and He wants you to receive and keep the peace that is only of Him. That can only come from putting Him first and doing His will. That really should not be so difficult, but it is, for so many. Love of this earthly life and all its comforts far outweigh love of God. Sad, isn't it? The very One Who is responsible for all man has, has been forgotten and ignored. Society and the media have surely done a good job at destroying the values that used to be the center of each home in America. God first. Prayer. Now, these are something to be ashamed of or mocked. Satan has surely done the job he has set out to do. He has destroyed the very backbone of your country. Without a backbone, it makes it very difficult to stand. Child, what I am saying, not many are standing. Not many have a backbone that will allow them to take a stand for anything of moral or spiritual value. Isn't that sad? I am depending more and more on those of My children who are listening, to carry the cross of conviction.
It is important for those of My children who have been touched by God in some way, to share and make known that He is working in your life. My Mother comes to many, and continues to cry out to come back to Her Son. Leave the world behind and all of its corruption. Many hear the call, and ignore it, little one. No one really wants to be considered different. No one wants to acknowledge to others the wonders and mercy of God's love. Many are called. Many are given miracles, signs, and wonders. Many are healed in so many ways, and they are grateful for a time, but after a while they too, take My love and miracles for granted.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I'm guilty of what You are saying. I don't find it easy, exclaiming Your greatness. I sometimes forget to thank You for all the wonderful things You have done in my life. Please continue to help me be whatever You want me to be, and do whatever You want me to do. I sometimes forget to focus on You, Lord. I forget to live one day at a time. The whole picture begins to worry me. I begin to be concerned about some of the messages I have received about carrying Your cross.
Jesus: Child, you are not to look to the future, and worry is not of Me. Look to your Jesus and continue to follow the will of My Father. In doing so, you will not lose your peace. Many prayers are being said for you and your family, so that when all begins to unfold, sufficient graces will be available for all that God is to have you do. You are not to concern yourself about things you have no control over. God will continue to shower you with graces. Many miracles will be evident in your life daily, through those sent to you and those sent to this holy place of peace and prayer. Be not afraid, little one. God is with you. You will do much for Him, but you will be given much in return. Now, go in My peace.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord. Thank You for restoring my peace. I love You.
Jesus: I love you, little one.
Jesus: Where is the faith of My children? Have you become so educated you no longer need your God? If this is what you really believe, then you have strayed so far it is going to take drastic measures to bring you back. Kind words and a gentle voice do not seem to be working. The eyes and ears of My children are closed. Many hear of My Mother's visits to the world and continue to say, "These are not real." They say, "This is the result of hysteria in a world that is troubled." Your world is troubled, child. It is not only troubled, but it is in trouble. It has chosen to turn its back on God.
Down through the ages, this has brought anger from the One Who has created you. It is no different now. Your God is disgusted with man, and his continual denial of the values he used to hold dear. The love of His Son, and the respect for the Mother of His Son, have been cast aside, and have been replaced by the love of money and pleasures of the flesh. Man is replacing God with false gods, and this is not only not acceptable and displeasing to your God and Creator of the universe, it is causing Him much anger.
The warnings have been given to you over and over, all over the world. Now you must reap the benefits of what you yourselves have sown. Innocents will suffer because of the hardness of your hearts. This cannot be helped. Man has brought the wrath of God upon himself, and now he must suffer the consequences of his many sins.
Ruth Ann: Lord, are there no words of encouragement? What about those who are trying to do Your will?
Jesus: Little one, those who are listening must continue to follow those laws set down by God. "Keep the faith," as your friend has said to you, and others, many times. Those words have been of a prophetic nature, child. In the days to come, those words will be a great reminder for those who will lose hope and trust in all that surrounds them.
My Mother would not have been sent to the earth if She were not of the utmost importance to God. She was the one chosen to give birth to His Son. Would His people doubt that She would have found great favor with Him? Isn't She the logical choice to send to the earth, to get the attention of a stubborn world who has turned their back on God Himself? Yet, there are many who are telling God's children to ignore the Mother of His Son. They say, "She is not needed." What Mother is not needed in a family structure striving to be whole and complete? Mothers are needed in an earthly family, and they are needed in a spiritual family. My Mother is needed, and She deserves the love and respect due Her.
Those who love Me, love My Mother. Those who love My Mother are best loved by Me. Need I say more? Those who choose to ignore and downplay Her importance in the salvation of mankind, must take heed to Her words. She is not to be ignored, or treated with disrespect. This displeases Me, and this displeases the One Who has created Her. The 'Woman clothed in the Sun', has Her part to play in the salvation of mankind. Man would do well to listen to these words.
You will be concerned about this message, child. Do not be. You are being prepared for a change in your ministry. You will continue on as you have been asked to do, but know that you will soon minister to My people in a new way. The messages to share with My children will cease. This has been told to you, but you will witness in a new way. All will fall into place. Have faith and trust in your Jesus. He will not leave you orphaned, and neither will My Mother.
You have been obedient, and have done the will of the Father, just as I and My Mother have done before you. Continue to be obedient, share what I have said. Be at peace with all I have said to you. Great blessings and graces are in store for those who love God and do His will.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Ruth Ann: Mother, do You wish to speak with Me?
Our Lady: Child, My Son has said it all. My Heart is saddened for My children, for I have tried so hard to get the attention of all who are on the earth. Many ignore, and there are those who listen and do not take to heart what is being said. They continue to seek signs and wonders, and do not choose to pray. Many are not receiving the Sacraments. Many are not treating My Son with respect. Many are receiving Him without first cleansing their soul in the Sacrament of Confession. What must I do to get the attention of My children? My appearances, words, and signs brought with Me from a God Who loves His children, have not been working. Now My children must suffer.
Ruth Ann: But what of those who are listening?
Our Lady: They must stay focused on My Son, Jesus, and not lose faith. That was, and is, the purpose of My visits to mankind, to bring all back to God, and prepare My children for the Second Coming of My Son, just as John ushered in His First Coming, I am here to usher in His Second Coming. That is why it is so important for My children to turn back to God. There is not much time left for them to get their lives in order.
Child, be at peace with all that is being said to you. God loves you and is pleased with all you have done. Your 'yes' has been a blessing to you and those around you. Your world and life have been turned upside down, but you have a divine purpose for existing. You are to help My children in the days ahead, to stay focused on My Son. Be obedient to the will of God, and know the graces needed to minister to God's people in the days ahead, will be there for you. Go in the peace of My Son, Jesus.
Ruth Ann: Thank You for speaking with me, Mother.
Ruth Ann: Mother, the words You shared with me after the message yesterday were of a personal nature. Do You wish to share anything with me today that I can share with others?
Our Lady: Child, you had many concerns yesterday, and I wished to put your mind at ease.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother.
Our Lady: You have also been concerned about the message that was given to you for the children who come to the farm on the third Sunday.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Mother. I was very concerned about sharing that.
Our Lady: Child, this message is true. The fact that I will not be among My children much longer is just that. The messages will cease; that too, will happen. My children have developed a false sense of security concerning the apparitions, visions, and locutions. God has sent Me among you to draw you back to Him. He is allowing Me to tell you He loves you, but this is for a purpose. You are living in the end times. He is to come to you, His children, and how many of you will be ready? How many hearts will still be hardened and unable to accept that life of the flesh does not go on forever? You must prepare your souls, so that when My Son does come, He will find you prepared and waiting with open hearts full of love.
Be not afraid, children. Many of you allow yourselves to be confused and used by the evil one. Stay focused on My Son, and live each day to the fullest extent of your being. Yes, there is much pain and suffering, and it will continue. Man is responsible for all that has come to the earth. He has chosen to turn his back on His Creator, and has instead chosen to worship those things that do not last. The false sense of peace that man has, that comes from accumulating wealth and things of the world, will not last. Many are discovering this, through the loss of these things they thought were so important.
'What profit a man if he gain the whole world and loses his soul'? These are words My children must reflect upon. These are words spoken to you long ago by My Son. They were true then, and they are true today. Children, you must turn away from the ways of the world and back to My Son. Offer up all your trials and sufferings for the conversion of sinners. Pray for those whose hearts have not yet been broken open to receive the love and forgiveness that My Son has to offer. I am here among My children to guide you back to the One Who has created you. I am here to keep your minds, hearts, and souls focused on the love of My Son.
Be at peace, little children. Do not live from message to message, seeking a time for all this to end. Look and strive for the peace that comes from giving everything to God. Let Him know you love Him, and realize that He is in control of all things. God has a divine plan. Pray, dear children, that all things He wishes for you, and I wish for you, can be realized. Much prayer and sacrifice is needed by My little ones.
Yes, you are living in the end times, but you know not the day or the hour. Take to heart the messages being given to you at this time. They will not last forever. A time will come when all of this help and guidance will be removed from you. You must be able to have the faith and strength to continue on your own. Be at peace in the love of My Jesus, and My Motherly love. God's word implanted deep within your heart will see you through all things.
Ruth Ann: Jesus, I'm not sure hearing these words given to me by Your Mother will be of comfort to many. There are so many seeking a time for all things to come to a halt.
Jesus: Many are doing just that, child, and they should be living the messages given many years ago. The messages of Fatima, had they been lived, would have brought about a peaceful world. Instead, My children did not listen then, and they are not listening now. My Mother will continue to call out to the lost sheep wandering in the night, until She will no longer be allowed to do so. She has been a kind and loving Mother to all God's children. She has been ignored, and much worse, has been treated with much disrespect from the very ones She is trying to draw back to God. This is displeasing to Me, and the One Who created Her. Those Who love My Mother are best loved by Me. You have heard that before.
My Mother has suffered much pain over the centuries in concern for all of you. She is extremely concerned for your souls at this time, for She knows time is running out. You, My children, should be aware of this, through the messages and appearances of My Mother all over the world at this time.
It has become quite evident that the world is in trouble. You need only listen to the news, or read the newspaper, and you will find the condition of the world is the worst it has ever been. The moral decay is all around you. Values have been destroyed that were extremely important to good family life. Man has turned from God, and has turned to pleasures of the flesh, seeking comfort.
Yes, you are living in the end times, and it is important that you listen to, and live the messages being spoken to you by My Mother. Love one another, and pray for God's Mercy to be poured out abundantly on all those who ask for it. Pray for the conversions of all sinners. Listen, and be obedient children. Your souls are in need of grace and mercy that is available to you from God.
Ruth Ann: Thank You for taking the time to speak with me, Lord. I will share this with others.
Ruth Ann: Mother, would You please speak with me?
Our Lady: Yes child, I am pleased to do so.
Ruth Ann: I just wish to thank You for ministering to me and all Your children these many months. You have said soon the messages will cease, and I just wanted to let You know how much I have appreciated being allowed to speak with You, and share the words spoken to me.
Our Lady: Child, you will still be able to speak with Me. It is just that the messages will cease.
Ruth Ann: There are those who will truly miss the messages from You, Mother.
Our Lady: Child, I have said all that has needed to be said. The words have been of great help to many, but others do not listen. You must hear the words and live the messages for them to be of any help to you. Many listen, but do not change their lives. You must truly take the messages to heart. My Mother's heart aches for those who refuse to take heed, and turn back to My Son. The words I have come to share are not new.
God loves you, and wishes you to become concerned about your soul. He wishes you to turn away from darkness. Man is destroying himself through greed, lust, and hate. Darkness is everywhere. It covers your land. You have no regard for life in any form, before or after birth. There is so much hate, anger, and unrest. Man must learn to take time to listen to God through His word. He must take time to pray, and in prayer, thank God for His many blessings. Man has taken so much for granted. Everything he is, and has, comes from God, and can be removed as easily as it was given to you. Your family, good health, jobs, all your material things, can be removed in the blink of an eye. What then?
If that is all you have lived for, the physical and worldly part of your life, where will you be spiritually? You must concern yourself with your soul, little children. You must cultivate a love and trust in God that will survive, no matter what is to come. I am here to help and guide you back to My Son. I am here to help you attain the love and peace that is needed in your hearts, and in your world. All the words have been said that have needed to be said. Now, My children must read the words and take them to their hearts.
Your work is far from done, child. God still has much for you to do, but you have been told months ago that your ministry will change. This is part of that change. Share what has been spoken to you many times, over and over. It is time for all My children to turn back to God. I have asked that you begin giving your talks on the farm. I am pleased that you are doing so. This land is special, and I will provide special graces and blessings for all those who come here in faith to pray. I will send those to listen to what you have to share. The numbers will be small in the beginning, but it will grow.
Be at peace with all that is asked of you. You do not understand much of what you are being told to do, but God's plan is perfect. You are to listen and be obedient. He will tend to the rest. Now go in My Son's peace. Minister to His people. I will be praying with you.
Ruth Ann: Yes Mother, I love You.
Our Lady: I know you are concerned because you are being told so little, but your faith will sustain you, little one. It has, up to now, and it will continue to do so. God has His hands upon you. He will not leave you for even an instant. Trust in all that has been spoken to you. God's love is great. You are to listen, and do all He has told you to do. Have faith and trust in Him. He will do the rest.
Ruth Ann: Mother, is there anything You wish to say to me?
Our Lady: Child, the time is nearing when I will no longer be allowed to minister to My children in the way I have been doing. God in His mercy has allowed Me to come to the earth and minister to His children in many ways, through many of those who were receptive to this gift. My heart is saddened for those who have not chosen to listen and take the messages to heart. As your Mother, I am concerned for the welfare of your souls. Many have listened with their ears to what has been said, but have not taken the words to their heart.
Many continue to search for answers that are not there, wanting to know the future. If My children would only listen to what has been said, and take it to their hearts, much pain and suffering could be avoided. But man continues to believe that he is in control of his life and his destiny. He gives God no credit for all that he has, and is. God does not care how much you have, but He does care what you do with what has been given to you. When you stand before the Throne of God on judgment day, He will hold you responsible for, and accountable for, the use of all He has allowed you to have in this world. For those who have been given much, much is expected. My children must come to realize that money and materialism are not to be the focus of their lives. There is only one God. There is only one life that is important, and that is eternal life.
Man frets over his earthly life, wanting to satisfy his earthly pleasures and desires, and he thinks not of his soul. Your life can end in the blink of an eye, little children, and all the material possessions you have gathered together, can be removed just as easily as it was given to you. Imagine yourself with all your material wealth and possessions removed. What do you have left? Is your faith strong enough to accept this kind of hardship? What if your good health was to be removed? Is your faith strong enough to be tested in such a way?
Focus on My Son. Tend to your immortal souls My little ones, and let God tend to all your needs. Arrange your priorities. Put God first. He loves you, and wishes your souls to be saved. My concern for you is great. You must choose to live for God, and not for the world. Your body lasts but an instant. Your soul lasts forever. I wish for your soul to be in Heaven for all eternity. Pray, dear children, and know I am praying with you. Go in My Son's peace.
Ruth Ann: Mother, is there anything You wish to add?
Our Lady: Child, do you realize that a lot that is being said is falling on deaf ears?
Ruth Ann: Mother, this was true of the words spoken in the time of Your Son's ministry.
Our Lady: Yes child, you are correct. But the need is even greater now, than it was before. That time was the beginning. This time is the end. That means, child, that time is running out for My children to receive the true conversion needed to receive the gift of God's love and mercy. Words can be spoken, but unless these words are taken to heart, they cannot, and will not, bring about the change of heart needed to receive all that God has to give His children. That is why it is so important for those who are listening, to take to heart the messages being spoken to so many.
My children are in need of conversion. They continue to seek those things in this world that bring about temporary happiness. God asks that you seek happiness that lasts for all eternity. This can only come from placing yourself in His hands. He will tend to all things. Put Him first, and know that in doing so, you could not be in greater care. Lives must be prioritized. You must change your hearts in order to receive all that God wishes to give to you. Place Him first in your life, and all things will fall into place. God's plan is perfect, and so is His love. Be at peace, little children, God's love awaits you.
Ruth Ann: Mother, do You have anything to add?
Our Lady: Child, as your Mother, I find it very difficult to stand by and watch God's children ignore the signs that are all around them, signs that could have been avoided altogether, had man never sinned. So many still ignore the warnings. God's love and mercy are still available to His children, but the hand of Justice can no longer be held back. Through the prayers of the remnant few, God will spare those whom He chooses, but woe unto those who continue to turn their backs on Him, out of a lack of love, deserving for One Who created you.
Be at peace, little one, even with the hand of Justice upon this world, there are still those who have found favor with God. There are those that continue to touch His heart, because of their genuine love and concern for others. So do not cease to pray, little children. God is listening. He is listening, and wishes you to know that He is pleased with your prayer.
Ruth Ann: Mother, I find these words discouraging.
Our Lady: Then you have not listened carefully, child. God loves all of His children. If this were not so, I would not have been allowed to come here to the earth to draw you back to Him, and away from all the distractions of the world. So many of you were living in darkness, and were not even aware of this. You were walking in a world of darkness, and your eyes and ears had been filled with only those things that were of the world. Your hearts were not open to the love of God. Through My coming to bring the message of love from Heaven, many eyes and ears have opened to this love that is Divine. Hearts have been broken open and touched, that would otherwise still be hardened and unaccepting of God's love. Child, do not mistake the intent of these messages. They are to draw those of My children, God's children, out of darkness while there is still time to do so.
Man has much to suffer for his evil ways, but this cannot be helped. The extent to which man suffers, can still be lessened by the prayer of those who take the messages seriously. Little children, listen to what is being said to you. Love God, and let Him know you are sorry for having ignored this love He has given so generously to you, when you were not so deserving. Let Him know you have not turned your backs upon Him, and seek to please Him through your prayer and sacrifice. Even in these times of trials and difficulties, He is listening. Stay focused on what is important, the saving of your soul, and that of your neighbor.
God loves you, and
I love you.
