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 February 15, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, I need Your words.
Jesus: I am here. You are concerned about your talk child, but you need not be. I will be there with you. There is an important reason that you speak with these children of Mine. You will know that reason someday. I ask that you lay hands and pray with each one of them. I will tend to their needs. You need only give them My blessing. I will pour out the graces that each child needs, depending on their need and situation.
Little one, it is true that you are to be My hands and feet on the earth. Your testimony will touch the hearts and make them receptive to Me. It will help them realize that God is alive and well, and performing miracles, just as He did when His Son walked the earth. Faith will get you all the miracles one needs, little one, faith and trust in God. I am here waiting to be asked for graces and miracles, but it takes the faith to receive. My children's faith has gone by the wayside because they are preoccupied with those things of the earth. I have had to take a back seat in all human lives. It is sad, but true. Even you, yourself, with your gift, do not speak to Me as often as I would like. I wish for your total life to revolve around Me, every breath you take be an acknowledgment of Me. The time will come.
Ruth Ann: Jesus, I have other things I must do too, family, etc.
Jesus: Yes, little one, this is true, but you can do those things and still remember that I am your keeper, your helper, your everything. It is through Me that all the other things have been made possible. You, like others, forget this. Without Me, there would be no job, no family. I am responsible for all things.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I really need encouraging words, and I feel like I am being scolded.
Jesus: Only reminded, little one. I will give you the encouragement you need. Go on with your day in the peace of Jesus Christ. You will be guided, guarded, and assisted in all ways throughout this talk. The children will be receptive. Give them My blessings, I will do the rest.
Ruth Ann: I love You, Jesus.
Jesus: And I love you, little one. Go in My peace.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Jesus.
Message of June 22, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: You continue to bless me, and I continue to fight against all that You wish for me to do. It's because of two things, Lord; I don't want to be a false prophet, and I don't feel worthy of all that You are calling me to do. Lord, there is so much pain out there, so many people hurting and asking for prayer. They are poor, and are driving long ways Lord, for prayer. I don't feel worthy of such trust that I will have a special gift of prayer better than their own prayer. I am afraid of failing them, Lord.
Jesus: Little one, little one, again I say to you, "You be obedient and do as I ask." I know this pain also, and their pain is your pain, and it does touch My heart to see you grieve for so many. It is true child, it is difficult for Me to deny one such as you, your prayers. You are giving up so much to be of help to Me little one, that I will deny you nothing.
Ruth Ann: Lord, this is in print, or it will be. That's a very special and overwhelming statement You are making.
Jesus: Child, I can make this statement where you are concerned, because I know your heart. You ask only for those things that I too, wish for My children. It is necessary in the case of many of My children to be aware that God is answering your prayers in a mighty way. It is to get the attention of many that this will happen on a bigger and bigger scale. Do not worry little one, you are up to meeting this. You have already proven yourself in so many ways. You continue to give and give of yourself. This is a blessing to My people. They know you are special, and this is why they come to you for prayer. They are seeking My help and the help of My Mother through you. The prayers will be answered little one, because of this faith and trust in me. Miracles come through faith, little one. Your faith is special. As a result of your sharing this faith with others, their faith is strengthened. This causes miracles, little one. Miracles are the result of faith and trust in God. Now see how it all works?
By your sharing your experiences and love and trust in Me and My Mother, others receive the faith they need to accept the miracles God has for them. Man will not always get the miracles he seeks, but God will give him the miracles that he needs. Just remember, little one, you are chosen to be special by God. It is not of your choosing, you have a free will, yes, and you could walk away at any time, but God knows your heart, and He knows that you will not choose to do so. You will persevere, as all of His chosen ones down through time, in hopes that anything you do will be of help to Him who created you. This is pleasing to God, and that is why all the miracles big and small, child, miracles for you and your family and all those whose lives you touch in any way. This is not the end child, it is only the beginning.
Ruth Ann: I have so much to be grateful for, Lord. Thank You from the bottom of my heart.
Jesus: Child, your Jesus loves you. Continue to listen and do My will. This is all I wish from you.
Ruth Ann: With Your help, I can do whatever You ask of me. Help me to know that always.
Jesus: It is done. You have a busy day ahead of you, child. Thank you for beginning it with prayer. Prayer is lifting your mind and heart to God. This you have done and are doing each time you speak with Me. This is true prayer, child. I am only telling you this because when I said, "Thank you for beginning your day with prayer," you questioned Me in your mind. You did not understand, and thought to yourself, "I have not said any prayers this morning." Your speaking with Me is true prayer, little one. You shut the world out, and let Me in. What a blessing for Me.
Ruth Ann: Blessing, Lord?
Jesus: Would you rather I said, 'gift'? My children bless Me with gifts of praise, prayer, and sacrifices. These are all blessings to Me, little one. My children who listen are blessings to those in Heaven who have need of their help in prayer. You do not fully understand child, but that is not important. It is important that you listen and do the will of God. This you are doing. Now, you may go in God's peace.
Ruth Ann: Thank You for being here for me, Lord.
Message of Nov. 14, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I am feeling guilty. I feel I am not writing as much as I should, the messages that You are giving me. I am feeling that I should spend more time in dialogue with You.
Jesus: That will be your choice, little one. I will encourage, but I will not demand that you write every day.
Ruth Ann: You know now that I will try, even if it is only for a few minutes, Lord. How did my life get so full? I don't see how I managed to teach, give talks, attend Mass daily, and all the other things, and have time to write what You were telling me.
Jesus: You found the time because you realized how important it was to share what I am saying with you. You attended Mass and prayed because these are all things you have been told to do. The Sacraments strengthen, and so does prayer, not only the one who prays, but the one being prayed for. Reading My words in the Sacred Scripture, the New Testament, is extremely important, so that you can grow. You must learn to attend retreats when it is possible, because that is also a source of growth. You need strengthening, little one, for what lies ahead. You have many praying for you, and this is of importance. Many realize in their hearts that much more is in store for you, that your cross is not an ordinary one. Your priest, too, is aware of this, as are many of the members of your prayer group.
Ruth Ann: I am blessed, Lord, to have so many who are concerned about my welfare. I have friends that truly care about me.
Jesus: Child, that is because they see more than you see. They look at you and say, "I would like to have her gift, but I would not like to give up my life for others." The two are one. They cannot be separated. So too, are the trials and tribulations that go with all you are doing. The pressure is great, but it will continue to grow, little one. That is the reason for your respite. Enjoy the time you have. The time will come when you will have time for little else except what I would have you do.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I will surely have time for my grandchildren. You won't take everything away from me, will you? I love my family. They are all a part of me.
Jesus: I will not, and do not, expect to take you from your family. I know how much they mean to you, and that is as it should be. I am only telling you that what I will have you do for Me will require more and more of your time. It will be more and more difficult to find time for your family. You will have to carve out time for them, just as you are doing for Me and prayer at this time in your life.
Ruth Ann: Lord, many are asking me where I was moving to, because they had read in a message that this place will become a retreat house, manned by retired priests.
Jesus: My Mother has spoken of this to you, and this is to be so. All of this will come to pass.
Ruth Ann: Other people are saying, "How can this be, since Jesus tells you the end is near?"
Jesus: I have not said the end is near. You have been told that time is running out and that I will be coming soon. These things are true. I have also said I will come to you and ask you to carry My cross, and that too, will be soon. Be not afraid, little one. You will be told all you need to know when the time is right.
You will need to move from where you live for more than one reason. Not only because you will not have peace, but the house will be used by those who wish to find peace. The two sound contradictory, but they are not. You will need quiet and solitude in order to pray, and it will not be available to you in your present location. That does not mean you will be moving far away. You will remain there when you are needed.
You are a beacon of light for My children, and you will continue to be so. As you grow, your light will grow, many will be strengthened by what is happening to you. Many will be strengthened because they see your faith and trust in God. They see you continue on your journey of faith, not knowing what tomorrow will bring, and that gives them the faith and strength to carry on in their daily lives. Your faith strengthens the faith of those around you. That is why it is so important to share what is going on in your life, with others, the good as well as the bad.
Many think that because you hear the words of your Jesus, and My Mother, that you do not have to contend with the bad. That is not so. The stronger your faith, the more you continue to be tested. The evil one wishes to bend and break those who are helping win souls to Jesus Christ. So it would make sense that he would come against you in a mighty way. Doubts, fears, and confusion in your life, such as you have experienced in the past few weeks, are all part of his ways. You continue to listen to Me, pray, and be obedient to the will of God, even though you have been living in the middle of construction and mess for several months. You get irritated from time to time, because you are one who wishes things to be neat and tidy, but you offer it up and say, "Truly this must be God's will for me," and you continue on.
Jesus: He hears your complaints, but it has not stopped you praying or working for Me, has it? That is what I am saying, you and your husband continue on.
Ruth Ann: Yes, we do, sometimes it even amazes me, Lord. I'm really only joking.
Jesus: (Smilingly) I know that, little one. I know your heart, remember? I know what you do, and how much you can take, and how much you love Me. I am at an advantage. You would die for Me.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I don't think that is unusual. I think most Christians would die for You. That's what it means to be a Christian. Besides, if you die for Jesus, I have been told by the good nuns, that you are a martyr, and if I'm not mistaken, martyrs for the Lord go to Heaven. So it's purely selfish on the part of those of us who would do that. We all want to go to Heaven.
Jesus: You are very naive, little one. Not all of My children would die for Me, and not all care whether or not they go to Heaven. Some don't even believe in Me or Heaven.
Ruth Ann: But Christians do, Lord. They believe in You and Heaven.
Jesus: But not all would be willing to die for Me. That is where you are wrong.
Ruth Ann: I'm sorry, Lord. I guess I am naive, as You say.
Jesus: You have much to learn, but that is what I am here for. Now go about your day. Know how much I love you, little one. My peace is with you.
Message of January 25, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, I know You are with me. Please give me the graces to do all You would have me do.
Jesus: Little one, this is something about which you need not be concerned. All those who choose to do the will of God have sufficient graces and strength to do so. You, child, have chosen to take a firm stand concerning your faith and trust in God. As a result of this, the graces will be yours in abundance. This does not mean that all will go easily, or there will not be suffering and persecution for you and your family. But child, it means as you walk this long, difficult path, there will be help along the way. There will be help in the way of little miracles, 'helping hands', and special blessings granted to you. These are rewards for doing the will of God and has always been a means of sustaining those who witness to the goodness and love of their Creator.
Ruth Ann: Why is this so difficult for some to accept, Lord? The things I am telling are actual facts. I would not tell them if they were not. It's not easy for me to do, but I do it because I wish to be obedient. If it touches only one heart, it is worth the anguish I am put through before each talk.
Jesus: Child, many do not wish to hear what you have to say because it means once they believe and their hearts are touched, they must change their way of living. A life full of materialism, noise, and the importance of self-worth will need to be changed. Their whole world will be turned upside down. I will have to come first, and all else will have to be prioritized accordingly. To a people steeped in darkness, where true value of one's worth is based on how much one has accumulated, this is going to be quite a shock. It isn't how much one has accumulated, but how one uses what I have allowed them to accumulate. Those who are wealthy have an obligation to share what they have with those who have nothing. Those who have much, have much to share. Those who have little, have little to share.
'Love one another', does not only mean love from the heart. It means show your love, do good works for your neighbor. Man has shut himself off from his neighbor. There are many reasons for this. Man has become so busy in his own little world, he ignores those around him and doesn't even realize there are others that need tending to. He has only time for himself, and his wants, and his needs. If you love My children, you will see to their needs. No one need be hungry, cold, or without clothing or shelter in a land of plenty such as yours.
Sadness fills My heart for the truly poor of this world, to see them so downtrodden and without hope. These are those I love most, the very least of My children. When I came to the earth, I did not come to a family of wealth. I came to live among the humble and poor of the world. It is true, the poor you will always have with you, but it is a reminder to all of those who have more, that what they have is to be shared.
When I speak of My children sharing what they have with their brothers and sisters, it can also be faith. It can be witnessing to the good God does in your life. There are many ways to show love for one another. It is not always through money or monetary gifts. It can be through a kindness, such as a kind word to someone who is in need of such. It can be talking with someone who is lonely. Man is not saved through faith alone. Good works are truly a part of this journey of faith. You cannot ignore the needs of those around you, and still consider yourself doing the will of God. God wills that we love Him and our neighbor as ourself for the love of Him.
Loving is caring and sharing, children. All of you have something to share, whether it be time, money, faith, love, or a talent given to you by God. Many are in need. They hunger and thirst, many for those things that keep the body alive, but even more importantly, for those things that keep the soul alive. You, child, in sharing these words with others, open hearts and eyes that are closed to the needs of others.
Continue to share in word and deed all I am telling you. In this way, you are tending to all of the needs of My children, and most importantly, hearts are being touched, and lives are being changed. That should please you, little one. It surely pleases Me.
Ruth Ann: That is what counts, Lord.
Jesus: Continue to witness, little one. I will supply the graces needed as you continue on this important journey put before you by your God.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord. Be with me and my family throughout the day and week.
Jesus: Yes, child. Go in My peace.
Message of 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.
My children have lost this faith that was so much a part of their life as a child. Society has a way of destroying this childlike faith. Man, in following the ways of the evil one, destroys and tarnishes every-thing that he touches. God wishes only good things for His children; and His children, because of greed and hunger for power and all that is not holy, continue to ruin his life and the lives of those around him. If only My children would learn to give their lives over to Me and do the will of the Father by not following the ways of the evil one, life could be peaceful. But no, man cannot be satisfied with what he has. He continually wants more and more, no matter what the cost, no matter who is hurt in the process. Man always wants what he cannot have, or what he should not have.
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.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Message of Sept. 12, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, there is so much going on today. Please help me get everything done that needs to be done today.
Jesus: Little one, it will be so. However, that is not your real reason for wishing to speak with Me, little one. I have already told you, I will be with you. I am always with you. You need only ask for My guidance and assistance. I am there always for all of My children. They need only to seek and they will find Me. Again I say, blessed are those who do not see and still believe. Your rewards will be great in Heaven.
You have been told My Mother is here on this land. This is holy ground, blessed by God. All things are being done according to God's choosing. You have been chosen for this special gift that requires great faith. You have been given a healing because of this faith. Now those who come here to pray and receive the graces provided by My Mother too, are chosen. I have said, and so has My Mother, that only those who My Mother has invited, come here to pray. She is choosing those who are serious about helping Her achieve the end of the reign of the evil one on the earth. Many hearts are being touched, and those who are faithful are given great graces to sustain them through the difficult times to come.
You have been told your ministry is to change soon. Much more is needed to get the attention of My children. There is much suffering ahead for a stubborn world that continues to turn its back on God. Your faith has been of great help to Me, child. It has been of great help to those who continue to watch you for direction. You are to be a model for My children to imitate.
Ruth Ann: Lord, this can't be. I'm a sinner. You don't want Your children to follow My example. Please don't say this to me.
Jesus: Little one, it is your faith and trust in God that continues to sustain you through all you do. The messages you share, the talks you give, the prayers you pray for others, all that you do and say, has been done in faith. You were asked to give up your career, your home, your very life, to share with others. You have given all to Me. You have said, "Your Will be done, Lord." Your simple 'yes' to the will of God will bring about the salvation of many. Yes, it has cost you much. Your privacy is gone, but in giving much, much will be returned to you.
You must not feel slighted because you are not having apparitions of My Mother. That was not to be your gift. You will see Me though, child, when the time is right. I will come to you, and ask you to carry My Cross. All will know you are of Me, and that I have been here. Because you have been true and faithful in little things, much more is to be required of you.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I am not sure of what You are saying. I wish You would speak clearly, so I knew exactly what it is You are saying to me.
Jesus: Little one, have I not always given you clear direction when it has been needed?
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.
Jesus: The direction you need in your life will continue to be given to you. I will continue to speak to you when there is a need. My Mother will do the same.
Message of October 24, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, much is happening over which I have no control. I am at Your mercy.
Jesus: Little one, that is what 'trust' is all about. You must approach each new day with complete abandonment to My will. That is what faith and trust in your God is all about.
Ruth Ann: I truly realize that, Lord, I know it in my heart. But it is difficult to achieve this level of trust, and still live in the real world. I find my life is like a roller-coaster, lots of ups and downs.
Jesus: One day you will achieve this constant trust. Life is a struggle for most of My children. It is filled with those things that pull and tug at the peace you wish to maintain. When you are able to say to Me, 'I don't understand, but Thy will be done', and truly mean it, those pulls and tugs will not be so great. The hills and valleys will become less and less, and you will find yourself in a world filled with very few valleys and more and more hills. The hills will be more like mountains. The day will come when, no matter what happens, you will be able to say, 'It's God's will, and I trust in His plan'.
Ruth Ann: You have such faith in me, Lord.
Jesus: I know you, child. I know there is much happening in your life to cause you great sorrow and pain. I also know you are having to completely trust in Me because you are not sure of what is to come next. Each day is begun in faith, child. Trust in your God to tend to all that is coming about to change your life. Change is not bad. It brings about growth. That growth will bring you even closer to Me than before.
Know that I am in control, little one. You have been told and prepared in many ways for this change. Even though you did not understand My plan, I have told you of a change in your ministry. I have told you many of the things that are coming to pass. I have also told you to trust in a God who loves you. You are to do much for Me and My children. I will not leave you without support. Know this in your heart, and trust that all will be done for the good of your soul, and that of My good. With that in mind, how can you be concerned?
Ruth Ann: Lord, it is my humanness. I am concerned about an injustice being done to someone whom I love very much.
Jesus: I was accused unjustly of great wrongs, child. You too, are accused of being 'not of Me' by those who do not understand what is truly happening in your life. That is the way of the world, child. Much good will come from all the evil that is being done to the person you are concerned about. You do not see the whole picture. 'Vengeance is Mine', sayeth the Lord. Those who wish to do harm to those who are of Me, will have much to suffer. My children see the splinter in the eye of their brother, but they do not see the plank in their own eye. This is true of most of My children. It is easy to find fault with those around you, but it is difficult to notice one's own faults.
Be at peace, little one. God is watching over all that is being said and done. You need not be concerned. All will be tended to in God's time, and in God's way.
Jesus: All will be for the good, God's plan is perfect.
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord. Help me to accept all things, even those I don't understand.
Jesus: The graces are there, and so are the prayers of many who truly understand your task.
Message of Dec. 21, 1994,
My Dear Children,
I am your Mother, here to help you. You struggle so, and it need not be the case. Turn your lives over to God. Put Him first, and all other things will fall into place. God wishes you to have peace. There are too many distractions in your lives. Empty yourself of all those things that prevent you from drawing closer to the One Who has created you. God loves you, and wishes for you to save your soul. This can be done through a true conversion. Pray from the heart for this conversion for you, and all those who do not know God as they should. I am here to help you on this journey of faith and trust in God. Take the words being spoken to you to your heart. Know God is listening, and tending to each one of your prayers. Trust, little children, trust. God's plan is perfect. Be at peace.
Message of January 11, 1995,from Our Lady to Prayer Groups
My Dear Children,
God in His infinite love and mercy, wishes you to know that He is working in each one of your lives. Much you do not understand, but it is not necessary that you understand. Trust, little children, trust. God's plans are perfect. Be patient, and know that He knows all your needs before you even voice them. He will not leave you orphaned. He will not leave you without hope. All prayers will be answered in His way, and in His time. Know, I, as your Mother, am praying with you as you continue this journey of faith and trust in God.
