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 Lady
Ruth Ann: Our Lady, will You speak with me?
Our Lady: Yes child, I am here.
Ruth Ann: I have not spoken with You recently, except for messages. I have been caught up in all that has been going on around me.
Our Lady: Yes child, I realize this, but you have spoken with My Son. It is very important that you do so, even if you don't take the time to write down what He is saying to you. He is your peace. Without peace, man cannot exist here on the earth. Do not shut your Jesus out.
Ruth Ann: I will remember.
Our Lady: Many things happen that we do not understand, child. Remember that. Sometimes when you are spoken to, you will think you understand clearly and distinctly what is being told to you, but it is not always as it seems, so you should have learned something of great importance through the death of your friend. God's will is not always our will, neither are His ways our ways. Hopefully, what you have learned from this, is to be more dependent on your priests, and less dependent on yourself. That is what dying of self is all about.
Ruth Ann: I have so much to learn. Will I ever be ready for Your Son to use me as He needs?
Our Lady: My child, 'yes' is your answer. He would not have chosen you if you were not to be molded for His use. You are an instrument through which God is to pour many graces out to His children. An instrument, child, has no will of its own. God wishes you to totally surrender to Him for His use. You are not to think for God. You are not to analyze His messages or deeds. You are only to be obedient to His will. Be obedient and listen. Write down what He shares with you, so all His children will know He is alive, and wishes to give them His mercy.
Dear child, I know all this is difficult for you. All those who have agreed to do the will of God have had a difficult time, but remember the times are difficult on the earth, but the rewards in the next life are great. If you could only see, you would have no doubt as to what you must do.
Ruth Ann: I know I have doubts from time to time. Help me, Mother, to have the submission and total surrender of Your heart. Help me to be more like You. I know God is in need of willing vessels, but why do I have such a difficult time doing what He wants of me? My life is such a roller-coaster.
Our Lady: Child, this is true of all those chosen to do His will. The evil one wishes to confuse you. He attacks at every turn. Be aware of this, but also be aware that I am here for you, as are all the angels and saints in Heaven. We are all at your disposal, and you can call on Us, and your Jesus, as the need arises. When you are hurt and confused, do not shut Us out. That is when you need Us most. I wish to keep you in the folds of My protective mantle. Do not pull away. I will help make difficult times easier for you. Please turn to your Mother. When you are sad, I will help dry your tears, and I will soften the hurt. I love you, dear child, you are special to Me and you are special to My Son. Come to Me in your hours of need.
Ruth Ann: I will try to remember this. There is always so much going on, things to do, etc.
Our Lady: There will come a time when you will have all the time you need for prayer and your Jesus. In the meantime, find quiet time to speak with My Son and Me. We can help you grow and become all God wishes you to be. I love you. Now go, and know My protective mantle surrounds you.
Ann: Thank You, Our Lady, for Your love and guidance.
Message of June 16, 1993, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups
Again your Mother invites you to listen and live the messages. Again,
I ask you to pray. Be aware, little children, that God is in control
of your lives. You are not the one who is in control. Let your hearts
break open, accept His holy will for you. Do not fight what God wishes
of you. Each one of you has a special purpose in God's plan of salvation.
Listen to what He tells you. Be obedient to His will and not your own.
You cannot have peace and fight the will of God. He loves you and knows
what is best. He knows the whole picture. Each one of you and your lives
are a part of this picture. Do not hold back, or the picture will not
be able to be completed. See how important you are to God's plan? Not
man's will, but God's will be done. That is your purpose for being here
dear children, it is as you have learned as a small child. You are put
on the earth to know, love and serve God, and then return to Heaven and
be happy with Him forever. Man has forgotten this. He still thinks his
reason for being here is to be happy and serve himself. Give yourselves
over to God. Let Him know you love Him. My protective mantle surrounds
you. Seek God's peace.
Message of July 14, 1993, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, why is it so difficult to get my weekly messages some days?
Our Lady: Child, you know the answer before I say it to you. It becomes more and more difficult because of interference of the evil one. The more he is aware of the good someone does, the harder he works at trying to stop or destroy the one who is doing the good. This only makes sense, does it not? He would not bother someone who is doing nothing, or someone who is doing harm to others. They are doing the bidding of the prince of darkness, without even realizing they have played into the hands of the one who hates God. Since he hates God, then it also makes sense that he would hate anyone who is trying to do the work that God would have them do.
Life for those who love God, and try hard to do His will, is not an easy one, child. You have known this and will continue to experience a life of difficulty, because of the love you have in your heart for others, and the love you have for God. This love brings with it trials and tribulations, child. Many heartaches and much suffering comes, but the rewards are so great. The rewards for the heartaches and pain you will experience here, because of your special gift, will be beyond anything you could imagine. God is watching over you child, when He asks you to do something, and you are obedient. Do you think for one minute He will not reward you? Much has happened to you, much that you have not asked to have happen. It is all a part of God's plan.
Reflect upon the message you were given at Medjugorje. Everything I have told you is being unfolded before you, one by one. That is why it is important for you to share all that God is doing in your life. It is important because it shows My children that God does care. He has cared so much, He has sent His only Son to the earth to suffer and die on their behalf. He cares so much He is sending His Mother, as He sent His beloved prophet, John the Baptist, among His children to tell them to prepare. It is time, children, it is time to stop and listen to what God is saying to all of His children.
As your Mother, I continue to plead with My children who are not listening. Please be good, do as your Father says, be obedient, repent of your sins. Man is not listening child, because he does not want to believe that the world, as he knows it, cannot last. Man is destroying himself and his world by greed, lust, and hate. A world built on sand will crumble. The evil one is guilty of making man believe he does not need God, and God is the only One who can save you. He created you, and He can save you, and will do so if you open your heart to Him. Open your hearts dear children, while there is still time.
That is the reason so many of God's children are receiving apparitions, locutions, and other special gifts. These are being given to share and help others that have been hiding their heads in the sand. It is a gift, but it is also a burden. Those who have gone before you and have tried to awaken the children who are sleeping, have not found it an easy task.
Much persecution will come child, but God will be with you. He is sending special people into your life to help and pray for you. There will be many who will laugh at you and call you crazy, but it will be their loss, child. You are here to present what God is telling you, and if they choose to let it fall on deaf ears, you are to shake the dust from your feet and walk on. Those who listen and have their hearts touched, will be able to touch the lives and hearts of others. That is why so many miracles are being granted to My children through you and this farm, in this Haven of Peace and Prayer. This has been granted as a special grace to My children to gain strength they will need through the trying times ahead. This is a place to fortify their faith and trust in God. Many graces and many miracles are being granted here, little child, more than you could ever possibly be aware of. This is because you and your wonderful family are being obedient and are sharing the blessings that God has bestowed upon you.
The miracles in your life, and those of your family, the farm, your very lives, are becoming the beacon that I have spoken to you about in Medjugorje. If you have a difficult time with this, it is because you are humble, and those who are humble do not think it possible that they could be so important in God's plan. Believe it, child. Know the hand of God is upon you and your dear family. Know also, that all God has planned will come to fruition. The evil one will not stop what God has in store for you to help save His children. Know this in your heart, child. Your Mother has spoken.
Much is to come, child, but you will not be alone. You become afraid from time to time, because the evil one chooses to make you feel you are not worthy, and should not be doing any of this. If not you child, then who? Not many are willing to give up life, career, home, privacy, family, and follow My Jesus. Many say 'yes', but when the time comes for the testing, they say 'sorry', and refuse.
You have said many times, you feel you are caught between a rock and a hard place. Either way you would turn, you could not experience the peace you would like. Child, focus on Jesus. That is your peace in this time of darkness. He is the stability that all must seek. He is your port in the storm. You cannot turn away from your destiny because you have said the quiet would overwhelm you. You are right, My child, you have been chosen to help God save His children. This is no small task. Those who have come to know you, realize more so than you, the magnitude of the task set before you by God. That is why so many have offered to pray for you. God will continue to place this upon the hearts of many. Be not afraid, little child of God. God is watching over you. Pray and be obedient. God will take care of the rest.
Ruth Ann: Thank You for taking the time to speak with me this morning, Mother. I was in need of Your reassuring words. I don't necessarily like hearing about the hard times ahead, but I do need to be reminded that what I am doing, has been and will continue to be, watched over by God. I do not wish to lead anyone astray. That is my biggest fear.
Our Lady: Child, that is a fear placed there by the evil one. How can you lead someone astray when you are telling My children how good God has been to you? Remember, there are no good fruits produced by someone who is of the evil one; you will know them by their fruits. Child, you can only produce good fruit, because you are doing the will of God. The fruit will be in great abundance. Time and patience will see the plan of God unfold, and the harvest will be great.
Ruth Ann: Thank You again for reassuring me.
Lady: Child, I am always here for you. Be not afraid. God is with
you and will see you through all that is ahead. God blesses you and your
family. Continue to love and serve your Master and Creator of this perfect
Message of September 1, 1993, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Dear Mother, thank You for the messages for the prayer group.
Our Lady: Child, it is for all prayer groups.
Ruth Ann: Mother, there is so much evil and destruction going on.
Our Lady: Yes, child. This is a difficult time for My children. That is why Jesus has sent His Mother to the earth. I am being allowed by God to assist His children. I am here to call you out of the darkness, and back to light. The light of the world has grown dim. It is covered with the corrosion of sin. Man must take the blindness from his eyes. The more and more he seeks happiness through material things and self-gratification of all kinds, the further he pushes his way into the darkness. If man could only see that by shedding the need for the excess baggage he has placed upon himself, he could see that things are weighing him down. Things are pulling him away from the true meaning of life; which is love, peace, and light. Man does not need all these things to make him happy. These are all giving him a false sense of security. There is no security on this earth except the will of God. Be consumed with doing His will, and the peace will come, the security and light will come. God continues to call to all His children through many of His children. He is using many who will listen and share His words and miracles with others. He has allowed Me to come to the earth over and over to many: in apparitions, locutions, visions, and manifestations of many miracles. All of these things come from God. Thank Him for allowing Me to guide you in this time of darkness.
Ruth Ann: Mother, we have just been interrupted. I am sorry.
Lady: It is all right, child. Pray, and your peace will return to
you. I will speak with you at another time.
Message of Sept. 15, 1993, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother Mary.
Our Lady: Yes, child.
Ruth Ann: I thank You for the message. It was very beautiful. You continue to bless us with encouraging words, even though all around us there is so much sin and suffering, so many terrible things happening in the world.
Our Lady: Child, you are not to focus on the bad. You are to pray for those things that only God can change. Keep your mind and heart on the One Who is light, love, and peace. Pray for His light to permeate the peace in the darkness of this world. God is the only One Who can change a world that has become bogged down in so much muck and filth. Man continues to flounder about, unable to pick himself up and out of this darkness of sin.
God will continue to send lifelines to each of His children. These lifelines will be in the form of special graces and blessings of all kinds. There are chosen ones all over the world receiving messages, visions, apparitions, and other visible signs that God is alive. He is ministering through His children by sending His Mother among His children to grab their hands and pull them out of this darkness. He is allowing Me to call out to My children in so many ways, and many are responding to this call. Many are not. Those of you who are chosen to spread the word of God and minister to His people by prayer and sharing of His blessings He has given to you, are a special blessing to Me and My Son. You have taken up the cross, and have begun to follow My Jesus on this difficult road to Calvary. Those who do the will of God have much work to be done. Be not afraid. The graces will be there to sustain you.
Ruth Ann: Is the lady I met today of You and Your Son? I hate to ask, but she certainly seemed genuine.
Our Lady: Yes child, she is of Me and My Son. She too, has a special mission. She too, must be patient and wait for God's plan to unfold. Her mission and your mission are not the same. The end results, how-ever, are. The purpose for you, your gifts, are to bring souls to God. The sharing of these gifts was to give strength and encouragement to each other. This too, was a special blessing from your Jesus. Know in His love and tenderness He wishes to give peace and solace to all of His children chosen to perform a special task or mission here on the earth. The fact that you were brought together brought much joy to you both. All of God's children need to hear things that will encourage them in the work put before them. Even though your gifts are different, there is a similarity and clarity to the call. You are both doing the will of God, not knowing in what direction it will lead. This is true faith, child. Faith is going forward and doing what is asked, without knowing exactly what God has in store. Such faith is a beauty to behold. God's chosen ones have this faith.
Remember, God has said He has chosen you, and He will do the molding. These things are coming about gradually child, through prayer, sharing, and spiritual readings. You will continue to grow and change through these very special graces granted to you by God. You are an instrument being shaped, molded, and polished by love and guidance given to you through your Creator. Thank God frequently for these graces, child. Not many are given so many beautiful gifts as those granted to you.
Ruth Ann: Is there anything else You wish to say, Mother?
Lady: Child, I know you have a busy day ahead. Know that My blessings
and graces are with you. Continue to minister to God's people. The graces
are there for you as you need them.
Message of January 8, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, do You wish to speak to me?
Jesus: Little one, your Jesus is always here for you. I am always here for all of My children, if only they would take the time to listen to Me.
Ruth Ann: Lord, there are so many distractions.
Jesus: Yes, the evil one interferes even in the prayers of My children who wish to listen. But the effort is being put forth, the graces and blessings are there for My children who make an honest effort to seek My comfort and that of My Mother. God knows the hearts and minds of those who were created by Him. 'Seek and ye shall find'. Those who truly look for Me will find Me. Those who truly listen will hear. I wish to speak to all My children, and I wish for all My children to listen to what I have to say. My children wish to hear what they want to hear, and not what I have to say. In a world made up of children who have been led into darkness, it is difficult for Me to be heard.
My Mother has asked all of you to return to the faith you had as a small child. Many have forgotten these words. It takes faith and trust in God to survive in a world of sin and degradation. The faith and trust is not there as it should be. The evil one continues to cause turmoil and strife, even among those who desire to do My will. "Love one another as I have loved you." If you truly try to live the messages of My Mother, the graces and blessings will come to you in abundance. All I ask is for you to make the effort. I will multiply all you try to do in My name and the name of My Mother.
There is so much pain and suffering that is being caused by man's refusal to acknowledge Me, and their easy acceptance of the ways of the evil one. It is much more difficult to be good than it is to go along with a society steeped in moral decay. To follow the way of the cross brings with it pain and suffering, but it also brings with it, peace. This peace is an inner peace that can only come from God. Following the ways of the world brings only turmoil, confusion, and frustration, little one. Why can't My children see that? They are seeking peace in all the wrong places. Sacrifices will bring peace. Love for one another brings peace. Confession brings peace.
My children have wandered far away from Me. The sadness is, they don't even realize this. The evil one has taken over their lives, and they have no clue that he is even near. Where there is peace, so also I shall be. Seek this peace. Come to the foot of the cross. Leave your burdens with Me and I will give you peace and rest from all the ways of the world.
It is true what My Mother has spoken. Time is running out. Man continues to go about each day as though he is not concerned for his own soul. He thinks only of those physical needs and desires that have become his whole life. It is true man must work and earn a living. It is true that you have families to care for, but it is also true that you have a loving God Who has given all of these things to you. It is up to you to arrange your priorities. God first, and all other things will be provided. That is where trust and faith come into play. Make time for Me. Read My word in the New Testament. Read materials that will lift your spirit and not pull you down into darkness and despair. Listen to those things that will bring peace and joy to your spirit. Receive the sacraments. These are all the things you have known and have been told many times.
But all of these things are pushed aside because you are too busy for Me. Being 'too busy' does not bring one peace. It brings confusion and frustration. It brings doubts and fears. All of these things are not of Me. Children, arrange your life so you have time for Me. I love you and wish for you to have the peace that will make you happy no matter what your cross is, and no matter what your burden is that you carry. I wish for you to be happy. Peace brings happiness and joy unimaginable, even in suffering. I am here, children. I am here to speak to you. I am here to love you and I am here to lighten your burdens.
'Come to Me, all you who are weary, and I will give you rest'. These are not just words, these are My words. These are meant for you. Trust and have faith, little children. Your Jesus wishes to come to a world ready to receive Him. Do not waste precious time on things of the world. Focus on Me. I will bring you joy and peace beyond belief. These words are truth. Believe them. Believe in Me.
You have much to do today, but I thank you for putting Me first, little one. Go about your day knowing I am with you in all things. Be filled with My peace.
Ann: Yes, Lord. Thank You for taking this time with me, and thank
You for the peace that You have given me.
Message of February 7, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Jesus, I'm getting a little nervous about my talk coming up on Thursday.
Jesus: Take a deep breath, little one, and rest in Me. Remember, I will bring you the peace you need to see you through each and every task I set before you. All you need do is come to Me with your concern and your fears. I will turn them into the joy and peace that you need.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord. I feel better already.
Jesus: If only all of My children would bring their concerns to Me, I could relieve them of their burdens and they, too, could have peace. I am the ultimate controller of My children's lives. They have a free will, but if they would turn all over to Me, so that My will would be done and not their own, peace could be theirs. See how simple it is, but how many can truly do this? Not many. It takes faith and trust in God, a faith that not many of My children have.
Ruth Ann: You are right, Lord. We all want to be in complete control of our life and no one wants to give You credit for taking care of us. I'm just as guilty, Lord.
Jesus: You are learning, child. You sometimes slip, and need to be reminded, but you have come a long, long way. As you grow in My Holy Spirit and accept more and more responsibility for caring for My children, you will slip less and less. You will live My presence, and continually be in prayer, in all you say and do.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I'm already noticing this. Even when I wake up during the night I immediately begin praying. Any time I have free or quiet time, it is spent in prayer.
Jesus: That is as it should be.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I also want to thank You for the time You've given me with my family this year. I've spent many wonderful days with my grandchildren and my children.
Jesus: There is a reason for this, little one. You do so much for Me, this is a reward for doing so. You are obedient, and are following God's will. How could I not let you have some little 'perks' along the way? And too, little one, you will become so busy, you will have less and less time with your family. This will be soon, so I wish for you to enjoy the time being given to you now.
Ruth Ann: Lord, it's difficult for me to take all that You say seriously. I can't imagine being too busy for my family. This year has been a great respite for me, Lord. I am busy, but I am not overwhelmed like I was while I was still teaching.
Jesus: Little one, it is not My wish that you ever feel overwhelmed, but it is My wish that you do more and more for Me. In ministering to My people and accepting My will, this will come about. I don't tell you this to concern you, I tell you this only as a preparation. When I come to you, child, and ask you to carry My cross, others will become aware that I have been here. That will bring many to this place of peace and prayer, that were never interested in coming before. They, too, will wish to see Me and the many miracles that will result in My coming to you.
Ruth Ann: Lord, You said I would begin receiving visions again, and this will be before You come to me, so are You coming soon, I mean like in this next year?
Jesus: Little one, I have said I would come to you after all of your children were settled. That is to be soon, is it not?
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.
Jesus: Then it is for you to be patient, little one. God has His own plan and His own time. You need only be receptive to the will of the Father. He will tend to the rest.
Ruth Ann: Thy will be done, Lord. I love You.
Jesus: I love you, little one. Continue to listen and share My words. All other things will fall into place in God's time. Go about your day in My peace, child. Know I am with you in all you say and do.
Ann: Thank You for Your love and comfort, Lord.
Message of April 8, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord, You tend to my every need, no matter how small.
Jesus: Little one, it is because of your complete turning of your life
and will over to Me. You will continue to see Me work in your life in
all ways. When My children trust and have such faith in Me, how can I
not produce? I am continually reminding My children of this, and they
must learn that this is something I mean. Trust, have faith, and I will
see that your faith is rewarded. Not only in little things, but in big
things as well.
You notice every little thing I do for you, little one. That is because you have given everything to Me, even your sorrow and pain. If all My children were such as you, I could continue to work miracles in their lives just as well, but some are so blinded by their own selfishness and greed, they would not even notice.
Ruth Ann: Lord, there have been times I did not notice. It's just that my life has changed so drastically that I can't help but notice all You do for me. You and Your Mother are continually blessing me.
Jesus: Your faith and trust in Me will be rewarded, little one. Know I am with you.
Ann: Thank You, Lord.
