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 April 21, 1993, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

My Dear Children,

Be not afraid! Your Mother is here to guide and help you through the trying times ahead. God loves you. This is important for you to remember. It is also important to know that God hears each of your prayers and each prayer is answered. So many believe because their prayers are not answered right away that God is not listening. God hears every prayer and in His time, in His way, they are answered. There is so much love in My heart for you dear children, that it bursts forth like a beautiful flower that opens on a warm sunshiny day. I bless you and thank you for praying too, for all those in need. My protective mantle surrounds you and your loved ones. Go in God's peace.

Message of May 12, 1993, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

My Dear Children,

I am again coming to you to encourage you to pray. Look to My Son for answers He is the way, the truth and the light. All things come from Him who waits to be asked. Children, ask and you shall receive, know this in your hearts. Many of you are growing impatient with God because He is not answering your prayers in the way you wish, or He is not giving you the answers quick enough that you so desire. Know dear children, every prayer is heard and answered in God's time and in His way. Do not be discouraged, your prayers and all those of others are being heard. I bless you and all your dear ones. Go in God's peace.

Message of August 2, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann: I wish to speak with You, Jesus.

Jesus: Little one, I am here.

Ruth Ann: I have had a difficult week Lord, but again the storm is passed. Thank You.

Jesus: The storm has passed temporarily, child. It is because you have just finished a talk. You have shared what God has done in your life with just a small group, but there will be much fruit come as a result of this talk. Remember My Mother has said to you, "It is not how many you speak to, but who you have spoken to." Those hearts that needed to be touched were touched. Your friends who came to the talk, the ones chosen to minister to you, have wondered why they were there. They too, will realize in time, the worth of the sacrifice of their day spent in prayer. God has His plan. His plan is perfect.

Ruth Ann: I have to admit Lord, I did enjoy the day and meeting both priests. They both love Your Mother very much. It was also a very beautiful place. I would like to go back and visit there again.

Jesus: It is there, little one, if you wish to go. But now I wish to speak to you about all that is going on, little one.

You are not to be overwhelmed. God is using you, and your farm, and family, but it is not to cause you pain. It is a cross, yes, because you and your family are not used to so much activity around you. You prefer a quiet, simple life. That is not possible, and there will continue to be more and more activity. This is being done gradually, little one, but it is still difficult for you. What is being asked of you is a great sacrifice. Many would have turned their back and said, "No, I'm not going to make this sacrifice and disturb my life and family for anyone." You have said 'yes' to your God, but that sacrifice will be great, but so too, will be the rewards. Please realize little one, God will continually make available the graces needed to do His will. You must put your faith and trust in God.

Ruth Ann: Lord, I'm concerned about a message I received about a chapel on the hill.

Jesus: Discuss this with your priest. He will help you with this.

Ruth Ann: Lord, he has much going on at his parish right now. Our church is being remodeled and our school is growing, and there is expansion going on. He has much to do.

Jesus: Believe Me child, when I say this will be a labor of love for your priest.

Ruth Ann: If you say so, Lord. You know his heart.

Jesus: Yes child, this is so. Many see only his faults. I see the good he is doing and will continue to do for God, His church, and His people. Again, he loves My Mother very much and wishes Her to help him minister to his flock. Much love is in his heart for God's people. I need not say more. Continue to listen and be guided by his wisdom.

Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.

Jesus: Little one, you must realize God has a special plan for you, and His will, will be done. You cannot and will not walk away. God will work through you to achieve much on the earth. My Mother has brought you to Me at the foot of the cross and said, "Here she is. She loves Me and loves You very much. She loves all God's children. She is now ready to minister to God's people." She is not wrong, little one. She too, knows your heart.

Of course you will have difficult times, especially before a talk. You will be tortured and tormented by the little things that normally would not be of concern to you. Know that in advance, so you will be prepared for these things. Ask for prayer from those in your prayer group and those who come to pray. Many wish to be of help to you for the sacrifice you are making on their behalf, and this is something they would do willingly, child.

Do not take so much upon yourself. The burden can be lightened, child, if you will only give it all to Me. Your husband in his wisdom knows this, and continues to tell you not to worry about so many things. Listen and pray. It will all be done for you. Go about your day and life little one, do not get upset over the mechanics of it all. It is not your concern. Your concern is one of prayer, sacrifice, and sharing God's word. Others will continue to take care of the mechanics of what is being done. You are not to worry little one, that is not of Me.

Ruth Ann: Lord, again I was told You will come to me and ask me to carry Your cross.

Jesus: Yes child, you are being given a year of peace and prayer, time with your family, time to grow in the Holy Spirit, and time to prepare for My coming to you. This is all to be. The Son of the living God, your Jesus, will come to you and ask you to carry His cross.

Ruth Ann: Lord, I feel I am already carrying a heavy cross. This burden is difficult for one who chooses to be isolated from the public eye. All I have ever wanted to be Lord, was a good wife, mother, and teacher, and now, I should add, grandmother.

Jesus: Little one, you have been and are all those things, but God wishes you to also be a good sister to all His children. He wishes your help in ministering to His people. You will not be limited child, as to what God will have you do. Oh, it has been said to you, "You will do even greater things than I." It was true. You cannot begin to realize the magnitude of your mission, child. When God finds someone willing to do His will, one with great hesitation and humility, He uses them to the fullest extent of their being. Many would like to do what you are being called to do, but they would enjoy it too much, child. Because of this, they would not be believable. The more difficult the task, the more you wish to withdraw. This is a great burden to you, and those who know you, realize the weight of this burden. If it were easy for you, there would be no cross. God has not promised you 'easy,' little one. He has promised you the rewards of the eternal kingdom. All you need do child, is listen and be obedient. God will do the rest.

When you pray for someone and they do not get the healing they would want, do not take it personal. You be obedient and pray for those who ask. I will do the hard part. I am the healer, you are only an instrument. I will heal My children in the way I choose to heal them. I will answer their prayers in the way I choose to answer their prayers. My Mother and I are available at all times to listen to the needs of all My children. We are here to pray with them. We wish to lighten their burdens. Graces are waiting here on your farm to be poured out on those who ask. This is a special place chosen by God to be used as a place for dispensing graces, blessings, and miracles. All who come here in faith will receive these miracles.

Ruth Ann: Thank You for repeating this for me, Lord. I always feel so overwhelmed when someone asks me to pray and their need is great. I want their prayers answered immediately.

Jesus: For some that is possible, for others, they must wait. God's time is not man's time, God's healing is not always man's healing. This is something you must always remember, child. You can only do what God would have you do. If God chooses to work in a special way through you for someone, that is His choice. You are only to pray and do His will. He will do the rest. You are to share His word in your talks. He will touch the hearts of those He wishes to touch. Those who come to your farm to pray, are being called here by special invitation. They will not go away empty handed. God will bless them generously for their faith and trust in Him. They will be blessed by many graces for answering the call of My Mother, the great dispenser of graces.

Ruth Ann: Is there anything else You wish to add, Lord?

Jesus: For now, that is enough. I know you have a busy day ahead of you. Be at peace, little one. God loves you. He blesses you and your family for the great sacrifice you are making on His behalf and for all His children. Know this and keep it in your heart.

Ruth Ann: I love You Lord, and feel so unworthy because of all my doubts and fears. You give me far too much credit. I become so stressed out before a talk that I am hard to live with.

Jesus: This is so, little one. This is part of the cross. The sacrifice is great, but the rewards are even greater.

Ruth Ann: Father Ron too, has seen me at my worst, when I become overwhelmed.

Jesus: Child, your priest understands your sensitive nature. He also knows you must take a step back and put things in proper perspective. That is why you have been sent to him. He too, must do the same thing from time to time. His burdens are great, but not greater than he is able to carry. Pray for him, as he prays for you.

Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.

Message of December 7, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann: Lord, the more I come in contact with Your people, the more pain I feel. You tell me to pray for people and then 'let go', but I can't always. Sometimes the hurts are too painful and keep coming back to my mind, and hurt over and over.

Jesus: Little one, give the burdens to Me. There is nothing you can do for My children in being so burdened. You are there to pray for them and give encouragement to them, from the words spoken to you by Me and My Mother. You are not there to be 'weighed down', so that you are unable to function because of the weight of their hurts, fears and sufferings.

Ruth Ann: Lord, I want everyone healed. You told me You had given me the gift of healing, but some-times when we pray with people, they are not always healed. That is a burden in itself, Lord.

Jesus: You want them healed?

Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.

Jesus: What about My will? I have promised you that if you lay hands on My children when they come to you for prayer, I would heal them; but remember, child, I am the One to choose the healing I wish for them to have. That is not for you to decide. You are only an instrument doing My bidding, little one. That is why you must learn to turn loose of the pain and suffering of others. It is good that you are loving and sensitive to the needs of your brothers and sisters. That makes you a usable instrument for your God, the healer of all hurts and wounds; but it is important for you to remember that you are to pray for, and share My words with My children, and know that I will take care of the rest. All will be done in My way, and in My time, little one. Does this help you?

Ruth Ann: I continue to pray, even after I lay on hands, Lord. I pray for everyone's lives that I or my family have touched in any way, and pray for their conversions, peace, and protection.

Jesus: That is good, little one. I'm just saying, don't hang on to their hurts. Give them to Me.

Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, and I do feel better. Thank You, Lord.

Jesus: I am pleased you have shared these hurts with Me, so I could be of help to you. Your peace is restored, is it not?

Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.

Jesus: Now, enjoy your day.

Message of March 24, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann: Lord, I am here to listen.

Jesus: You have just prayed with a young child, and you feel responsible for whether he is healed or not. Remember, child, you do the praying, I do the healing. I choose what is needed for My children at that particular time. Not only for the one being prayed for, but for those around the one accepting prayer. You are not to concern yourself with the why's and wherefore's. You are to be obedient to the will of God. You have given much peace to the family, and to the child, for having done this. Be at peace little one. Know that I am God and am responsible for all My children. You are only an instrument. Some of those you pray for and with will be healed physically. Others will be given other healings. It is all according to the will of God.

Ruth Ann: Lord, I guess I'm just not in the mood to listen. I am so sad. It brings back too many other sad memories of others who have come seeking physical healings and some have not received them.

Jesus: You choose to think that the most important healing is physical. That is where you and I differ.

Ruth Ann: No, Lord, that's not really so.

Jesus: Then why do you become so sad when someone you have sought a physical healing for does not receive it?

Ruth Ann: Well, maybe I do then, I don't know. I do know in my heart that the most important thing is the salvation of our souls. But when the person is young, or a parent with young children, I really have a difficult time with wishing only for a spiritual healing, or just a gift of peace. Why can't You do both? That would make all of us happy.

Jesus: Little one, little one. You do not understand the ways of God. All things happen for a reason. God has a perfect plan. Your plan is not God's. Child, you will be praying with many who are seriously ill, and some will live to witness to others and some will not. But God will give them whatever they need to sustain them through their trials. You must learn to pray and let go. Let God do His work through you in whatever way He chooses. That is doing His will.

Ruth Ann: I know that, Lord. But that doesn't help when I have just been with friends and family of one who desires a physical healing desperately.

Jesus: It is very painful for you, little one, I know. But this is all part of God's plan for you. You pray, and let Him do the difficult part. Remember, 'Thy will be done'.

Ruth Ann: That really isn't helping, Lord.

Jesus: Does this help? You have given that family peace because you have taken the time you did not have to go pray with them. That was a special gift you gave to them. The unselfish gift of self. They were touched by your concern and love for their child and friend. That should be of some consolation to you. Now you continue to pray for the family, and let God tend to the rest. Be at peace with all God has you do, little one. His ways are not yours. I love you and I am touched by your love and concern for My children.

Ruth Ann: You have placed this upon my heart, Lord, this is not of my doing. You made me, remember?

Jesus: You have a free will.

Ruth Ann: Not really, Lord. If you wish to be good, there really is no free will.

Jesus: That is your choice. You choose to do good and avoid evil. That is exercising a free will.

Ruth Ann: I'm sorry, Lord. I really don't wish to argue. I'm just hurting for the family and the child. Please forgive me.

Jesus: Child, you have done your part. I will do the rest. Go in My peace.

Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.

At the conclusion of this message, Ruth Ann went back to reading a spiritual book which she had been reading, and she came to the following part and she said to the Lord again:

Ruth Ann: Lord, it's interesting what I just read after our conversation.

(And this is a quote from that book: 'In all our actions to please God we shall find these marks that we may know whether they have been truly for God alone. First, if when your task has not been successful, you are not disturbed, but remain as tranquil as if you had attained your goal'.)

Ruth Ann: You have made Your point Lord, I will continue to pray for the child and the family.

Message of April 14, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann: Lord, what do You wish to tell me?

Jesus: Little one, you are in turmoil. You are allowing your peace to be disturbed. Relax, little one, take a deep breath, and put all earthly concerns aside. Close your eyes, focus on My name, Jesus. Repeat it over and over until you feel the peace you need and I desire for you, at this moment.

(After doing this, Ruth Ann continued:)

Ruth Ann: Amazing, Lord. Thank You.

Jesus: This is something anyone can do at any time, little one. That is what I have been telling My children over and over. You need only take a few moments to focus on Me. It is important not to lose one's peace. The evil one loves confusion and turmoil. That gives him a foothold to cause small fears, doubts, and hurts to become huge ones. It allows for temptations that are very subtle to enter your subconscious mind and cause confusion and anger. Come to Me. I am peace.

Ruth Ann: Lord, I know what You are saying, but when I have so many things on my mind, and seem pulled in all directions, it is difficult to remember. I am at peace, and it is as though none of those things that were bothering me are that important any more.

Jesus: They never were, child. Man must learn to prioritize his life, if need be, on a daily basis. I am to come first, and then all other things will fall into place.

Ruth Ann: I have a prayer routine, Lord. When it gets disturbed, I become frustrated.

Jesus: Frustration is not of Me, little one. The two cannot go together. If your prayer routine is interrupted, as you say, so be it. Hopefully, you can get to it later. If not, then as soon as you are able. I know what you are referring to, little one. You spent a great deal of time with My people yesterday. That is prayer, little one. You have asked Me, "What do You want of me, Lord?" I have told you, "Minister to My people." This you have done. I would have preferred you do that, than prayed many prayers, or even listened to Me and recorded. My children are hurting, little one. Minister to them. Give them the strength and courage to go on in a world that is difficult to live in. Evil is everywhere. My children need to hear someone who is willing to say, "God is alive. He is working miracles. He has worked miracles in my life, and He will do the same for you. You need only ask and have the faith to believe. God will take care of all the rest."

Ruth Ann: Lord, You are right. There is much evil, but there is also much suffering. There are times when I just sit and cry for all those people who come seeking healings, especially those seeking physical healings from diseases that are considered incurable, Lord. I want them all healed. It pains me a great deal, Lord.

Jesus: Little one, God hears you. He also sees your tears. Do you not know that My heart aches for My children as does the heart of My Mother? All prayers are heard, little one, and all are answered. Remember, you are only an instrument and can do nothing except those things that God wishes for you to do. You pray for His children. The healings that God wishes them to have will be provided. Sometimes it will be a physical healing, sometimes a spiritual healing, or a mental healing. Know that God touches all those whom you touch in some way. It is not your will be done, but 'God's will be done'.

Ruth Ann: I guess I need continuous reminders, Lord, because I'm put in situations that are heartbreaking. I want all things for everyone.

Jesus: That is why you have been chosen, little one. You have taken all of My children to your heart. Even those who persecute you find their way into your prayers.

Ruth Ann: Only because I figured they must be hurting in some way to want to make me and my family feel badly. I've been accused of being of Satan, and I know that can't be. Satan would not want people praying, and he would not be wanting people to return to their churches and confession and the other sacraments. So obviously, those who say those things need prayer. You say to me, "Love your enemies, and those who would do you harm."

Jesus: That is exactly what I say, little one. Thank you for listening and taking all My words to your heart.

Ruth Ann: It's no big deal, Lord. That's what we're all supposed to do, forgive and love each other. Sometimes it's more difficult to do, but it has to be done if we want to follow Your example. I don't always succeed right away, so I'm not all that good, Lord.

Jesus: You continue to try, little one, that is all I ask of you. That in itself is a blessing to Me.

Ruth Ann: You are being too kind, Lord. You know all my faults and those things that irritate me along the way.

Jesus: Yes child, I do, and I love you still.

Ruth Ann: Now You are teasing me.

Jesus: Yes, child, I am, because you do not wish credit for the good things you do for Me. You wish to focus on your faults. I wish to focus on your heart, and the love you have for Me, My Mother, and My children.

Ruth Ann: Let's change the subject, Lord.

Jesus: As you wish, little one.

Ruth Ann: There were many here yesterday to work and to improve the grounds for prayer. Thank You and Your Mother for sending these very special people into our lives. These things could never happen without Your help, and the help of Your Mother. I know that to be true.

Jesus: We will continue to touch the hearts of all those who are to be a part of your ministry and this farm in any way.

Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord. My husband and I mean this from the bottom of our hearts. The miracles are wonderful, Lord.

Jesus: They will not cease, child. I have much for you to do. You will need many, many helping hands along the way.

Ruth Ann: I love You, Lord.

Jesus: I love you, child. Go in My peace.

Message of Sept. 5, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann: Lord, thank You for yesterday, and thank You for the beautiful rain this morning. So much has happened, and is happening, all around us. We feel truly unworthy.

Jesus: Little one, this pleases Me. You are thanking Me, even though I know your heart is heavy.

Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, but my heavy heart has nothing to do with the greatness and goodness of the many blessings You have given to me.

Jesus: Someone you have been praying for, for quite sometime, is not receiving the healing you desire. This is the reason for your heavy heart, is it not?

Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, but this isn't the first time. If I received the healings I desired for Your children, they'd get it all, not just spiritual healings. 'Thy Will be done, not mine.' This isn't the first time I have felt hurt and frustration at Your decision for the healing You desire. My heart continues to ache for those who come for a physical healing and do not receive it. You know, Lord, who I am referring to without saying the names.

I continue to be obedient and do all You ask, and yet I feel You have let me down, as well as those seeking the healing. Lord, why did You bring this up? I wanted to stay positive today, even though my heart aches for some very special people.

Jesus: Little one, you needed to discuss this with Me so you could be at peace.

Ruth Ann: Lord, I thought I was at peace. At least as much as I could be with this concern on my mind.

Jesus: Remember, child, you are only an instrument. You cannot see the big picture. Yes, you are obedient. This pleases Me. You continue to be obedient, even though your heart aches for My people. Do not be discouraged, little one. Healings come to My children in many ways. I give them what I wish for them to have. Even though you do not understand, be at peace with My will.

Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, I have no choice. I accept whatever You do because I am not in control, and You do whatever You feel is best.

Jesus: Many times what I choose to do doesn't make any sense to you. Again, little one, you cannot see the big picture.

Ruth Ann: Lord, it's all right, I'll deal with it just as I dealt with others who have not received what they have asked.

Jesus: You have come a long way, little one. I can remember a time when you would have said, "I am not praying for any more people. You aren't going to give them the healings they seek."

Ruth Ann: Lord, these things were said out of grief and anger. As I have said before, I felt You were letting those people down.

Jesus: All My people coming seeking the healing they wish, and they leave with what I choose to give them. For some it is a physical healing, but only if it will be for My greater honor and glory. All are touched in some way, little one. Always remember that. My Mother continues to draw those children here whom She wishes. There are special blessings and graces to be had here on this farm. You are beginning to realize just how important this haven of peace and prayer truly is. This is a refuge for all the lost souls in need of a place to call home. It is a place for all those who wish to seek peace in a world filled with turmoil, and no peace.

You did not realize the importance of drawing people here to this special place, but you are beginning to know, My child. There will be many more confirmations about the importance of this place. Remember, it was chosen by God as a place for His Mother to draw Her children. She is calling them here to bring them closer to Her Son. This will become clearer and clearer to those who are listening, as time goes by.

Blessed are those who do not see and still believe. Only those being called by My Mother are to come at this time. The numbers will grow. The blessings will grow. The gift of My Holy Spirit abides in this place, as does the presence of My Mother. Be at peace with all that is happening around you. Many miracles are in store for My children in this special place.

When the time is right, the numbers will multiply. God's mercy will abound here. Conversions will take place beyond belief. Know that what I am saying to you is truth and light. God's grace and mercy is to be sought in this place, and received by all those who come to repent of their sins.

Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.

Jesus: Go about your day in peace. Know that God is blessing all you do on behalf of My children. Thank you for tending to My lost sheep. You have been obedient in this. Now you will be asked to do more.
