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 Nov. 17, 1993, from Our Lady

Ruth Ann: Mother Mary.

Our Lady: Yes, child.

Ruth Ann: Since You were giving me the message for prayer group, would You mind speaking with me for a few minutes?

Our Lady: Child, I am here for you as long as you have a need.

Ruth Ann: It seems I don't speak to You as much as I'd like.

Our Lady: As long as you speak with My Son, that is all that is important. Remember, that is why I am here, to call all of the children back to Him. How can I criticize one who is doing what I have asked for, over and over? Child, I am pleased you are spending more and more time with My Son.

Ruth Ann: It's just that I know You are providing so many graces to so many people who come here to the farm in faith to pray, that I don't want You to think You are not appre-ciated. You are loved more than I can ever tell You.

Our Lady: Child, it is because of the graces of God that I am here to provide these graces for you. I could not do these things for My children, if it were not allowed by the One Who has created you. Tell My child-ren they must remember to thank God for allowing Me to come and minister to His children in so many ways.

Ruth Ann: Mother, those who read this will know. Most already are aware that it is through the love of God and His mercy that You have been allowed to minister to us. Especially to those of us in the United States. Most of us never expected the miracles here. That was something far away, and not given to those in the United States.

Our Lady: Child, it is because of the grave situation in the world that I have been sent to you. Our Lord continues to reach out to His children in hopes of drawing as many back to Him as possible. I have offered to be the Mother of His children, when I had said 'yes' to His will many, many years ago, as a small child. Now I have come to ask many of those chosen to say 'yes' to do His will. All of those who answer My call for prayer and sacrifice are doing much to save many. There is so much to be done. The harvest is great and the laborers are few. Be aware of this when you read My messages. Take them to your heart, and do all that is asked of you.

Live My messages for they are the words of Sacred Scripture. They are the words of God. They are the words spoken by My Son while He was here among God's children on the earth. The sorrow He felt in His heart over the loss of many of His children, He continues to feel. His Agony in the Garden of Gethsemene was not just for one day. It was for the entire world, and for the life of the world, past, present, and future. The pain over the sinfulness of His children was extremely difficult for My Son to endure. But He did it for you and all the other children that were to be born and sin, over and over. Children it is important that you realize this, so that you will think twice before sinning. Not only does it cause a stain upon your soul, but it pains My Son deeply. Dear children, listen and live the messages. Pray and make sacrifices. Prayer can, and will, make a difference. Share this with My children.

Ruth Ann: It will be done.

Our Lady: Go in His peace, child, to love and serve Him.

Message of Nov. 29, 1993, from Our Lady

Ruth Ann: Mother Mary, it's been quite a while since I've recorded what You have spoken to me. I really would like to speak with You.

Our Lady: Child, I am here.

Ruth Ann: So much has been going on. The interview I was concerned about has taken place, and the article was in the paper yesterday.

Our Lady: Did I not tell you all would be done well, for the greater honor and glory of God?

Ruth Ann: Yes, You did, but when I first read the article, I looked for negative things in it, though when I realized I was looking only at the negative and not the positive, I felt better.

Our Lady: Child, it is time for it to reach the media, and I have chosen the one who was to write the article so it would be done with compassion for those involved. Now, those who are interested in a place to pray when others gather, will be touched and called to this place of peace. You really need not be concerned, child. You have been told that God has His hand upon you and all those involved. He will try to make all that you do, go as easily as possible. It does not mean, however, that the evil one will not come up against you constantly, but you have many prayer warriors sending up your name, and the intentions of you and your family. God is being bombarded with your name, and those who are concerned for you, and all you are trying to do on His behalf. These prayers do not go unnoticed, child.

Ruth Ann: Thank You for reassurance, Mother.

Our Lady: It will all be done for you. Remember these words? Let them be imprinted upon your heart. God has great plans for you. You cannot see this, because you cannot believe you are worthy of these plans. Child, you have said 'yes', you are listening, you are obedient, and share all God has said to you. This is all that is required for you at the present time. Satan continues to come up against you and your family in all ways, but your faith is strong, child, and beautiful to behold. You continue to tell your family, "We just have to give it to God and let Him handle it. He does a better job that we can ever do." That is called surrendering to the will of the Father.

Ruth Ann: Isn't that what we're all called to do?

Our Lady: Yes, child, that is what we are all called to do, but when times are difficult, and you see no way out, most become frustrated and angry with God, and begin feeling sorry for themselves and those around them experiencing the difficulty.

Ruth Ann: I've done my share of that, Mother. I'm certainly a far cry from being the patient person You would make me out to be. I've had my share of 'temper tantrums'.

Our Lady: You have come so far, little one of God, and you don't even realize it. What time of the morning is it?

Ruth Ann: 3:15 AM.

Our Lady: And why are you not sleeping, like most of My children?

Ruth Ann: Because I was awakened, and wanted to speak with You before I start My day, without any interruptions.

Our Lady: Does that not tell you something, child?

Ruth Ann: Only what I have just said to You, Mother.

Our Lady: This is a quiet, special time I am spending here with you, when you could be sleeping.

Ruth Ann: I have been feeling called to do this for quite some time, Mother. It's just that I have difficulty getting up in the morning, and always have had, well, at least since the children have been grown. It was much easier to get up at all hours when I had little ones depending on me.

Our Lady: My little ones are depending on Me, child. That is why I am here. I have given up My peaceful time with God to go forth and minister to His children. I am going forth to call all My children back to God. It is through you, and many others such as you, that more and more are being called away from darkness and into the light. Many are just beginning to recognize the importance of My role in the salvation of mankind. I was a willing instrument through which God sent His only Son to the earth in the beginning, and now He's sending Me out to prepare His children for His Son's Second Coming. Those who are listening and sharing what He is saying through the Mother of His Only-Begotten Son, are gaining many graces. The graces are for what is to come before the arrival of My Son, and your Redeemer, Jesus Christ.

Do not place so little importance on your role, child. You are being obedient, and you are listening. Many blessings and graces will come through you and this place of prayer blessed by God. Make no mistake about it. There are so few 'willing workers', instruments that are willing to totally die of self, so that others may live. You and your family are sacrificing much, but you continue on each day, not knowing what is to come but already saying, "Whatever, Lord."

Ruth Ann: I want to go to Heaven, Mother. How can I turn my back on God and say, "Sorry, You'll have to get someone else who loves You more than I do to do this?" That would be pretty selfish on my part.

Our Lady: You cannot imagine how many of God's children have done just that, turned their backs on Him Who gave them life, and said, "Not me, Lord. You'll have to get someone else to do Your work." Their faith is not there when it is needed most.

Ruth Ann: Let's talk of something else. I really don't want You to speak about me. You are giving me more than I deserve. There are so many who are helping me, people You and God have sent into my life, Mary's Children, all the helping hands along the way, being provided by You and God. These are the ones making all this possible. I could never do this alone. My family, children, and their spouses, and future spouses, have all been wonderful. I know the graces have come from God for them to be able to handle all that is happening. Their lives, too, are being affected by all this.

Our Lady: Child, it will continue to be so.

Ruth Ann: I am aware of that, Mother, but I also know we'll make it through whatever comes. I believe and trust in God. He would not send me more than I can handle. I feel the same is true for my family, so I am confident that whatever comes next, the graces will be there.

Our Lady: He has promised this to you. It has been promised to all of His children who try to do His will, no matter what. Your faith and trust in God strengthens that faith and trust in others. See how God works?

Ruth Ann: Yes, Mother.

Our Lady: Now you must get some rest before the beginning of another busy day. Go in the peace of My Son, Jesus.

Ruth Ann: Yes, Mother. I love You.

Message of January 3, 1994, from Our Lady

Ruth Ann: Mother, are You with me?

Our Lady: Yes, child, I am here. I am pleased that you have taken the time to speak with Me today. You are in need of reassurance, and I am here to give that reassurance to you through words from Heaven. What greater reassurance do you need?

Ruth Ann: Mother, I appreciate all You do and say, always. It is difficult for me to believe that I have been chosen for something this special. This is beyond my wildest imagination. It is also something I don't understand.

Our Lady: That is the most difficult part for you to grasp, child. You feel you need to understand and have the full picture laid out before you. That is exactly what will not happen, child. God wishes His children to have the courage and conviction to walk in faith; 'Thy will be done, Lord, whatever it may be'. Those who have given themselves over to the One Who has created them over the centuries, have had to do just that, child: walk in faith, trust in God, do His will and He will take care of the rest. You must be pliable, bendable, and easy to mold into whatever He desires. You are an instrument, child, through which We are to work, so you must be open and willing to trust and give all to God.

If you begin to become concerned about what is to come, you lose your pliability. You lose your peace. These things are needed in order for God to do His best work. Do not impede what God wishes to do with and through you. Many lives are at stake, waiting for your divine revelations. Many are just waiting for the words and directions from Heaven that come just in time to help them in their life. If you were not listening, and if you chose not to share these words, God would find other ways to direct them. But why not be the willing instrument that God needs? I have said 'yes' to the will of God, not knowing what the future held, and look how I was used. I am the perfect example of love, willingness, and obedience to the will of God.

That does not mean that all will go well, or that all will be easy. It only means that you are doing the will of God. What better purpose would any life have than to do the will of God? Remember, child, God has a plan for each life He places on the earth. He only awaits the simple 'yes', in order for His plan to come to fruition. It is man in his stubbornness that creates obstacles so that God is continuously having to make changes so that His divine plans can be brought into play. Man needs to listen carefully, and be obedient to the will of God, and as a result, amazing miracles can take place.

Be at peace, little child, with your 'yes' and with your day. You have much to do, but know We are with you. If you feel yourself losing your peace, call on My Son, Jesus, the prince of peace, or Myself. We will restore this peace needed to do the Father's will.

Ruth Ann: Yes Mother, I will do so.

Our Lady: Your Mother loves you and continues to be with you, to bless all who ask you for prayer, and those who come here to pray. All those who come here to pray are the recipients of many graces and blessings.

Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother.

Message of Feb. 13, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann: Jesus, this has really been a busy weekend. Please accept my apology for not taking time to sit quietly and listen. The seminar we attended was wonderful. Matter of fact, the entire weekend was wonderful. The fact the weather was very bad and people still came to pray should please You, Lord.

Jesus: Little one, any time My children gather together to pray, I am pleased. Yes, the Saturday prayer groups do please Me and My Mother. Those who give up their time unselfishly to pray for the needs of others are doing exactly what My Mother is calling all of Her children to do. It is through the prayers of others, that many of My children will experience a true conversion. Now, with the Lenten Season upon you, would be the perfect time to spend even more time in prayer and making sacrifices. These are needed in a world where sacrifices are few.

Your country has been blessed with much, and not many appreciate this fact. As time goes on, many will begin to realize that all God has given to His children should not be taken for granted. Man is seeing that in the blink of an eye, God can remove any and all possessions. Man continues to build his life around material wealth, and forgets he has a soul that needs much care. A soul lasts forever. 'Things' do not. When are My children going to wake up and see that God is telling your country something extremely important? As you watch disaster after disaster befall your country, can you not see a pattern? Wake up, children. Your God is trying to tell you, you are on the wrong path. You are ignoring the One Who can help you most.

My Mother weeps. Her heart aches. I too, feel a great sorrow. My heart breaks because for many, My death on the cross was in vain. I know this, and yet I still desire for My children to come to the foot of the cross and repent of their sins. My Mother will not give up. She is determined to save all of Her children, even the very least is of great importance to Her, as it is to Me. In times of great need, many will cry out to Me because they realize I am their only source of strength. With all the material wealth removed, man is able to see what is truly important.

These times will be a source of grace for some, and for others it will prove to be just the opposite. Those are the ones who need prayer. Those who will blame and turn away from God as a result of their loss, are the ones for which My heart aches the most. Times will become more and more difficult, children, but those who realize that God is in control, and good will triumph over evil, are the ones who will be drawn even closer to Me and to My Mother. So even though the times are difficult, there will be good come from staying focused on what is truly important, saving one's soul. Continue to pray, children, and know that your prayers are being heard. Expect miracles. My Mother and I wish you to have them. Know God loves you.

Ruth Ann: Lord, we know this is true. I don't think anyone doubts that, at least those who pray don't doubt God's love. It's just that sometimes we feel You have a funny way of showing it.

Jesus: That's because you think in human terms, and not as God thinks. You do not see the 'big picture'. If only you could, the world would be a perfect place, instead of one that is in utter chaos.

Ruth Ann: Lord, I mean You no disrespect when I say these things to You. I'm just trying to tell You the way I see things, and the way others sometimes see things that happen.

Jesus: Child, I do not take it as such. You are being open and honest with Me, and it is taken in just that way. Remember, I know your heart, and it is a heart of a child, My little one. I could never doubt your complete honesty with Me for one moment.

Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord, because it is not my intent to be hurtful or disrespectful to You. I know my littleness, Lord. I also realize Your greatness, and all You have done for me.

Jesus: Do not hesitate to be open and honest with Me, child. I know that others have the same questions and feelings in their hearts, and in reading what I have said to you, they are given comfort. Continue to do My will, little one. Be not afraid. You are again feeling overwhelmed by what is coming.

Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, but I wasn't going to mention it. I'm trying to get a better handle on it by myself.

Jesus: It is not necessary for you to do so alone. Seek out your Jesus, so that He can support and encourage you. Then, you will not feel alone.

Ruth Ann: But Lord, I do feel alone, at least in a physical sense, no matter how many people You send to help me, no matter how much my husband and family support me, I am still alone. It's just 'me', left to do Your will.

Jesus: You are not, and never will be, alone. I am always here with you, and do not let what is to come, be the focus of your daily life. Take each day and live it with Me. Discard all that does not bring you closer to Me. All you do and say should be of Me. Be an example for My children. Share what I have to say to you, and pray for those who wish prayer. Many miracles are to come about to My children through your having said 'yes' to the will of God. This cannot happen through someone who is alone. It can only happen through someone who has God walking hand in hand with them, so know, child, you are not alone, in the way it counts most. None of My children are, unless they choose to be. I will not turn My back on My children, but My children do turn their backs on Me. Know that when you turn your life over to God, you cannot and will not ever be alone. God will walk with you in all you do for His greater honor and glory. Does that help you?

Ruth Ann: You know it does, Lord. Again, You have read my thoughts, and have taken care of a concern before I have even voiced it to You.

Jesus: I am God, little one. I know the needs, wants, and desires of all My children. Now, go in My peace, little one.

Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.

Message of March 5, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann: Lord, would You speak with me?

Jesus: I am here, little one. You are concerned about one of the messages which you have received.

Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord. These things I have been told have not upset my spirit, but how can they be real?

Jesus: Little one, I have told you that I would ask you to carry My cross. Many times before, I have told you this. You have had confirmations that you have asked for, and still you doubt.

Ruth Ann: I do not consider myself worthy, Lord.

Jesus: It is not for you to decide who is and who is not worthy of these things planned by God. Only He has that right. Much of what has happened in your life, you do not understand. It is not for man to understand. God is a God of mystery. If you knew and understood all that God knows, then you would have no need for Him. Man is totally dependent on God and His love and mercy. Whenever man truly realizes that, then He can experience true conversion. In the meantime, be content that God loves you, and is patiently waiting for all His children to turn their lives over to Him so He can do many wonderful things for them.

You are not to understand all that is going on, child. You are to listen, share, and be obedient to all that God is asking of you. Live each day to the fullest, and enjoy this time with your family. Know there is much more to come, and this time given to you at the present time, has been your respite. It is soon to come to an end, little one, then you will be much busier than you have ever been before. I am not saying this to frighten you. I am telling you these things to prepare you for what is to come.

Ruth Ann: Lord, I am not frightened. Sometimes I get a little frustrated, and wonder how in the world I ever got into all of this. Whatever did I do to deserve this? Why can't I be like other people, and go about my days being good, saying my prayers, receiving the Sacraments, being a good wife, mother, grandmother, and teacher? Why did my life have to become so complicated? I'm a simple person, Lord. I really don't, and didn't, want much out of life, except to be a good person and eventually join You in Heaven.

Jesus: For some this is adequate, child, but for those who have said 'yes' to the will of God, He has other plans. You are one of these.

Ruth Ann: Then I should have been a man, so I would have been a priest, Lord. The people who come to me are hurting. I don't mean just physically, I mean spiritually. They need counseling and absolution.

Jesus: Little one, have I not told you that as you touch these children of Mine, I have My hand upon you? You are My hands blessing those who come to you for prayer. You are My instrument, child. You cannot do the work of a priest, that is true, and that will never be, but you can give My children peace and healings of all kinds. This will cause them to seek out their priests. This will, in some cases, bring My little ones back to the Sacraments. The Lord works in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform. I have told you to minister to My children. I will tend to their needs. You be obedient. I will do the rest.

Little one, God can do all things. You are not to limit Him or judge what He is doing by your standards. He is the One with the divine plan. It is important that His children know this and give their lives over to Him, so He can work in their lives. 'Thy will be done'. These words said by My Mother many years ago, brought about a change in the world beyond belief. That simple gift of faith and trust in God changed the history of mankind. It brought Me into the world to live and die for the sins of man, so man could merit the rewards of Heaven. Those down through the years who have said 'yes' to the will of God, have brought about a change in the lives and hearts of others. You have been chosen to be one of those, child, by your simple 'yes' to God's will for you.

Now, you must be patient. Know that I am God and can do all things. I, too, have done the will of My Father. Though the road was difficult, I would not change anything that I did. Because it is through My suffering and death on the cross that I have given God's children the gift of eternal life, if they so choose. Your 'yes' to the will of God will bring many to the foot of the cross. Many who would otherwise be lost, will find their way back to Me. My Mother has brought you to Me, and now you too, will share in what She was sent here to do, care for God's children. Let them know how much God loves them. Share the many blessings and miracles He has done, and will continue to do, in your life. Minister to My people, child. I will tend to the rest.

Go in My peace, little one. Know I am with you in all you say and do.

Ruth Ann: I love You, Lord.

Jesus: I love you, little one.

Message of March 23, 1994, from Our Lady

Ruth Ann: Mother, do You wish to speak with me?

Our Lady: Little child, yes. There is much to be said.

Ruth Ann: I am listening, Mother.

Our Lady: Child, you have had a difficult time praying because of interference from the evil one. Thank you for not becoming so discouraged that you would walk away. Continue to seek peace, child, it is most important.

Ruth Ann: I had a really difficult time yesterday, Mother, but I have remembered that that is always the case after a third Sunday weekend. It seems that we are always attacked with a vengeance.

Our Lady: Child, it has taken much time for you, and much heartache, to get you where you are today. Many do not realize this about your gift. They do not realize that with this gift, you have had to give up your entire way of life as it existed before. All things you do now are for the greater honor and glory of God. You, your family, and all you have done before has had to take a back seat. Some has been discarded altogether in order to make room for God and all His children. There is a great price to pay for such a gift as yours, but the rewards in the hereafter will be even greater for having paid this price.

You have returned from the Holy Land with a new resolve to do all God asked of you. You are determined to do His will. Doubts and fears have been removed from you in order that you go forth and share His word. This does not mean it will be easy for you. It will continue to be difficult for the evil one will continue to attack you in many ways. But child, remember, good will triumph over evil. Those who are My helpers, God's chosen ones, will be instrumental in sharing in this triumph of My Immaculate Heart. Those who have chosen to say 'yes' to the will of God, and respond to this call to pray, and draw others to prayer, are to play a tremendous part in the drawing of others back to My Son. This will bring with it grief from those who are of the evil one, but it will also bring with it much joy from your God. It will bring with it a peace that can only come from God.

Some go through their entire life living for themselves, not knowing the will of God, and not doing His will. You child, know what His will is, and now you have been given the graces to go forth with a greater resolve than ever before. Before you did these things because of obedience. Now, there is a desire to follow His will. Not just out of obedience, but a desire to please your God, no matter what the cost. This will be noticed by those around you, because this desire will also be experienced from those who come into your life. They too, will have a new resolve.

These are graces child. As you receive these graces, they will reach out and touch the hearts of others. As a tiny flame can start a huge forest fire, so can the tiny flame of desire, begin a huge flame that will grow in great proportion in those who share in your ministry in any way. Be aware of the importance of what you are doing for God, child. You are His chosen instrument here on earth, whose lives you touch in any way will be rejuvenated with a new desire to please God.

Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother, for these words.

Our Lady: Be at peace with all I have said to you this day, little child. This is truly of your Mother, the Mother of Jesus, and I continue to do the will of God, as are all of you who are being called to participate in this great army that will slay the evil one with this great tool of prayer, My rosary.

Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother, for not giving up on me.

Our Lady: This is all part of growing, child. One must always walk before one can run. You now have a desire to run, do you not?

Ruth Ann: Yes, Mother.

Our Lady: Go in the peace of My Son. I love you and surround you with My protective mantle.

Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother. Please care for my family.

Our Lady: This I continue to do child.
