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. 23, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Jesus: Child, I know you don't have a lot of time, but I also know you wish to speak to Me.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord, this is true. But since I was called away early this morning, I was afraid there would be too many interruptions and therefore, not possible to speak with You.
Jesus: I will make all quiet, child.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Jesus: I wish to share with you just how much God loves you.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I know there is much more than this to share.
Jesus: You are right, little one, there is much to add. God loves you so much, He sent His only Son to live and die for you, so that you could gain the reward of Heaven.
Ruth Ann: This sounds like a review of my catechism, Lord.
Jesus: Yes it does, little one, those were the days when My children had no doubts as to why they were put here on the earth. Those were the days when My children knew exactly what their purpose was in life. Now My children continually question what they are doing. So many are trying to find themselves. What they are really looking for is God in their lives, and they don't even realize that is the burning desire that is in their heart. They complain about hating their jobs, their life, the people they work with. They complain of dissatisfaction of all kinds. What they need, they are not finding, because they are not looking in the right places.
Dissatisfactions, irritations, boredom, depression, these are not of Me, little one. And the minute one complains of such, you know right away the evil one is working in their life trying to disrupt, cause grief and turmoil, and bring them down on his plane. They must turn to God in prayer in order to find peace and a calmness in their life. This can only come from God. They must learn to use the Sacraments and sacramentals available to them to deal with the darkness that tries to disrupt and cause hate and anger in the lives of many of My children. The prayer, 'I bind and rebuke the evil one in the name of Jesus', must be used at times.
There is much My little ones can do to combat the evil one. The best thing is prayer, the rosary given to My children by My Mother will break the stronghold one day that the evil one seems to have upon the world. The Woman Clothed in the Sun will shine Her light on all of Her children and draw them out of darkness. Goodness and light will triumph over evil. My Mother's Immaculate Heart will see to it. But My children must listen and live the messages being given to them, in order to be able to know what it is they are being called to do. Many continue to ignore this fact, and use the excuse that the messages haven't been approved. My Mother, and anything She would say, would not cause harm to anyone. These are Her children She is calling out to at this time. What Mother would do anything to cause Her children harm, especially One Who is from Heaven? In the meantime, these children who wish to ignore are denying themselves, and their loved ones, many graces that they could otherwise be getting, graces that would combat fear, hate, confusion, and depression. That is as it will be.
During the time of My teaching on the earth, before My death on the cross, many ignored what I had to say. As a result, they were among those who were responsible for My death. It is important for My children to listen and pray for one another so all My children's eyes will have the blinders removed. Love one another as I have loved you. There is no room for hate, anger, or envy in a world that is steeped in My divine love. Peace, child-ren, strive for peace. Peace in your hearts, homes, and the whole world. Much of this can be done through prayer.
Ruth Ann: I continue to pray, Lord. There is so much pain, and suffering, and unrest in the world. Will there ever be peace?
Jesus: Peace will come when the minds and hearts of My children focus on God instead of the world around them.
Ruth Ann: Thank You for the quiet time, Lord. I love You.
Jesus: I love you, little one, go in My peace.
Message of Dec. 1, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Jesus: There is a great need, little one. My children have found something missing in their lives. That 'something' is peace. Many are finding that peace here, and in places such as this. This place has been chosen to be set aside by Me and My Mother as a source of renewal. This haven, blessed by God for the use of His people, will continue to be a source of peace, grace, and blessings for all those who come here in faith to pray. You, child, have been chosen to take a stand for the good God is doing and continues to do in your life. You have been chosen child, to witness to others so that they, too, can stand firm and steadfast in their test of faith. My children need someone who is not ashamed to say, "Yes, I believe in Jesus Christ," and "Yes, He is alive and working miracles today just, as He did two thousand years ago," and "Yes, He will work in your life for you today, just as He has in mine, if you will only let Him in."
Message of Feb 9, 1994, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups
My Dear Children,
Do not be afraid, God's love surrounds you, even though darkness has covered your earth and all that is on it. God's love is ever present to His children. Call out to Him in these hours of need. He is listening and answering your prayers. There is so much suffering, children, and so much need for prayer. Do not turn away from the One Who can save you from this suffering. Man continues to destroy himself and those around him through hate, greed, and lust for power and control over others. Over and over I tell My children to seek the peace that can only come from God. Dear children, love one another as you are loved, and then peace can come to your world. Pray so you can get peace in your hearts. Then and only then, can change come about. Please, dear children, listen to what is being said to you. So much suffering could be avoided if only you would listen. I love you little children. Seek God's peace.
Message of Feb. 9, 1994, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, You seemed frustrated in Your message today to the prayer groups.
Our Lady: Child, I continue to tell My children to pray and make sacrifices, and they continue to turn their backs on God. Many think they do not need to pray, and those who pray do not feel they need to do more. What is wrong with your world? No one seems to take the messages seriously, and those who do spend so much time speculating on when 'the end' is coming that they miss the point of the message. The reason for the messages is one of calling for change of the heart. Pray, dear children, and ask for the peace of God to permeate your hearts. Seek Jesus in your neighbor. He is there. Love one another. Do not fight your neighbor. Love your neighbor. Child, the peace of your world is being destroyed, little by little, and no one seems to really care enough to do anything about it.
Ruth Ann: Mother, many are praying and many prayer groups have sprung up all over the world, many shrines to You and Your Son are being revisited. So why do You say, no one seems to really care?
Our Lady: Child, I am your Mother, sent here to help you prepare for the coming of My Son. My Jesus is hurting, and I am hurting with Him. He looks at those of you who continually ignore all that is being said and shown to you, and again feels the agony He felt in the Garden at Gethsemane. Why do God's children have to be so stubborn and so blind? Why can't you see that you are destroying not only others in your hatred, but yourselves and your world as well?
Peace is needed in your world, and it must begin in your hearts. Seek this peace, this peace is a lasting peace, and no matter what goes on around you, it will continue to remain in your heart. 'Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and all other things will come unto you'. Put God first in your lives, little children, and He will tend to your other needs. Love God with all your hearts, minds, and souls, and your neighbor as yourself, and you will have the peace you seek. Times are difficult, and this has been brought about through lack of prayer and trust in God.
Man, in turning his back on God and removing Him from every aspect of his life, has brought about darkness. The evil one continues to wreak havoc upon the earth, and God's people have been deceived into believing that God is not needed. Dear children, look around you as God has been removed little by little from your world, more and more hate and destruction comes about. Man is destroying one another. Put God back into your world, children, and you will see a change. Do not allow Satan to continue to have the upper hand. Pray, dear children, and turn toward God in these hours of need. He is listening and waiting to hear from you.
Ruth Ann: Mother, many of us are trying to do better.
Our Lady: I appreciate all each of My children do, but it is not enough. Put God first in your lives, then, and only then, can you know you are doing what is asked of you. Pray, dear children, that you understand the urgency of the messages being sent to you from Heaven. Do not seek signs and wonders. Seek peace. Seek to please God through prayers and sacrifices. Then the graces and blessings will be given to you that God wishes you to have to strengthen your faith and help you keep His peace.
Ruth Ann: You seem so sad, Mother.
Our Lady: Only because My children do not take what I am saying seriously enough. I wish for them to be at peace in their hearts, and peace cannot come unless there is much prayer. The prayer must come from the heart. It cannot just be words said. It must be words said from the heart. Share what I have said to you.
Ruth Ann: It is done, Mother.
Our Lady: I thank you for your continued effort, child. Go in the peace of Jesus Christ, My Son.
Message of Feb. 23, 1994, from Our Lady
Our Lady: As you work and witness for My Son, great graces will be granted to you in the form of blessings and answers to your prayers. There is so much unrest in the world that My children must have those such as you to keep a balance in their lives. God has touched your life in such a way, little child, that the peace and light He has left within you radiates to those around you. This calm and love comes from God, child. Only He can give this kind of peace and contentment in a world torn by sin, grief, torment and pain.
Ruth Ann: You are right, Mother. I keep hearing these awful things coming from other sources. I no longer fear anything that is to come. I am at peace with everything, even for my children and their children. I feel whatever happens is God's will, and let His will be done.
Our Lady: Child, you have totally given yourself over to God. That is why you have achieved this peace. You know God loves you and is in control. Whatever He has to do to purify the earth and His children on it, has to be so. Whatever it takes to make the earth ready for My Son's Second Coming will be done according to God's holy will. Much suffering is ahead for My children, but as I have said before, pray and turn your lives over to God. Stay focused on My Son. Be steeped in light, love, and truth, and there is nothing to fear. Man has always been told to live each day as if it were to be his last day on the earth. This is not anything new. All God's children must live prepared to meet their Maker at any moment. Not many do so, but that is how one should live. If God's children follow His Commandments, they cannot go wrong, and will be at peace with each day of their lives.
Ruth Ann: I understand what You are saying, Mother, and yes, we have been told that over and over.
Our Lady: Pray and make sacrifices. Tend to the needs of your neighbor. Love one another. Pray for each other. Life is very difficult for many of My children. They struggle about in darkness, not realizing that the light they must seek is My Son. This saddens Me. I see so many sinking deeper into the muck and mire of sin, death and destruction. They seek peace in pleasures of the flesh, and it is the spirit that is crying out for nourishment. They cannot and will not be satisfied until they have a conversion. That is why I continually ask all of My children to pray for this conversion that is so important to the life of the soul. It is important for those who have this peace to share it with others, so they, too, can pass it to those around them.
Ruth Ann: I thank You for enlightening me of what my true mission is, or Whoever is responsible, Our Lord, Holy Spirit, Whoever.
Our Lady: You were reminded of the prophecy I gave to you in Medjugorje, child. It is just that you are better understanding what God expects of you. He has said to you, "Minister to My people," and I have told you many years ago, you are to spread love and peace to your family, prayer group, and in time it will grow bigger and bigger. This peace will spread throughout your country, and into the entire world, little child. You cannot comprehend this, but it is true. Much is to come, but you will have the support of your family, your God, and those friends chosen by God to assist you. Be not afraid.
Ruth Ann: Mother, I truly am not afraid. I get sad from time to time for losses that have occurred in my life, but I'm truly not afraid, for I know You and Your Son will take care of us. God is in control. It is all in His hands. I am in His hands, and I can think of no better place to be, in a troubled world. I love You so much, Mother. I thank You for taking the time to speak with me again this week.
Our Lady: I love you, little child, and I thank you for listening and sharing. Now, go in My Son's peace. Spread this peace to others.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Mother.
Message of March 16, 1994, from Our Lady (In Jerusalem)
Ruth Ann: Mother, I am truly touched by this pilgrimage, but I have had little time to listen and write.
Our Lady: Child, My Son and I have both said to you to go and enjoy the trip to the land of My Son's birth, death and resurrection. This is always a busy time for you, but you will have much to reflect upon as you return to your home and family. God has been so good to you, child. He has given you many gifts since your first gift of 'yes' to His holy will.
There is much more to come child, and you will be fortified with the graces to help you in these difficult days that are ahead of you. You need not be concerned. God loves you and is watching over you with a mighty gift of love. You are being told of the personal cross that will make it possible for others to come to a true and deeper conversion of the heart. Be attentive to the words being spoken to you. Take them into your heart, little child. You are being prepared for great graces. Your mission has only begun, child. As what God wishes for you continues to grow, many other gifts will be given to you. God does not take from His children without replacing what is taken with greater and better gifts in return.
You, My child, must be receptive to all that God wishes for you. The graces are available in abundance. Your gift of receiving His words is a special gift that is to be shared with others. It would do no good to only receive without sharing. God's light must not be hidden under a bushel. There it would burn out and die. In sharing what is being said to you, you are fanning the flames of love and causing a great fire to burn in the hearts of those who choose to listen.
Gifts are given to all of My children. It is up to them to discover their special gift and use it to the greater honor and glory of God. He wishes all His children to agree to do His will so He can work great wonders in their lives and hearts, and the lives and hearts of their loved ones. All wish for their loved ones to be saved. God wishes this too. He does not wish to lose even a single soul. This would be possible if only My children would take to heart all that is being said with great seriousness.
Prayer can change many things. Prayer can bring about the conversion of your dear ones, and those who are your brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus. You are all to be one, little child. One in the spirit of love and peace. But it takes much prayer and love. Do not be so critical of one another. Look for My Son Jesus in each and every one you meet. Then it will be difficult for you to find fault with those around you. Many of you can see the splinter in your brother and sister's eye, but cannot see the boulder in your own. You must guard against this. It is not of God.
The evil one has a way of finding little irritants to place before you. These little irritants then grow into big ones. Do not allow him to use you in this way. Be kind to those around you. Seek forgiveness from those whom you have hurt in any way. That is the way to gain peace in your hearts and in the world. God has continued to wait for His children to come to an understanding of peace with one another, but this peace has not come. Man has so much animosity in his heart for his neighbor, that his peace is not being achieved. Seek peace in your hearts, dear children, so this peace with your neighbor will come.
God's patience has come to an end. He is telling you through many signs and words that the time is now for His children to stop this anger and hatred toward one another. He has sent His only Son to the earth as an example of what He chooses for you to be and do. Live with your neighbor with love and patience in your heart, then peace can be achieved where there is no peace.
I will continue to help all of you for as long as I am allowed. Seek this help from Me. I am your heavenly Mother full of love and compassion for you. Bring your heart to Me. Join with My heart to touch the lives and hearts of all God's children. Seek peace, little children, seek it in your heart, in your daily lives, and in the world around you. Be the light to achieve this peace. Share it with others.
Now, I know you have another busy day ahead. I thank you for listening. Go in My Son's peace.
Ruth Ann: Thank You for these words, Mother, I love You.
Our Lady: I love you, child.
Message of March 17, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Jesus: This is your last day in the Holy Land. It is a land of great turmoil, child. It seeks peace and peace will not come. The minds and hearts of men prevent this peace from coming. As a result, many innocent suffer.
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, it is obvious to see. There are soldiers everywhere trying to keep peace.
Jesus: My children have still to learn that peace comes from within. It is not something that can be gained through violence and bloodshed. But this is how man continuously works at peace. Man must live My commandments to gain peace. Once he has achieved the peace within, the peace in the world will come. Why are My children so blind? My Mother continues to warn Her children. God is warning them and they still do not listen. Renew your efforts in prayer, little one. Renew your resolve to do all My Father asks of you for the sake of this peace. There is so much pain and suffering here and in other places all over the world. Much prayer is needed for this peace that can only come from God.
Be grateful for this time given to you, little one. Be glad God has been so good to you and your country. Go from here with a new commitment and willingness to do the will of God. It is through those of you willing to give your lives so that others may live, that this peace of the heart will come to many. You do not fully understand, little one, but as time goes on, more and more will be made clear to you.
You are feeling the need to get on with your day, are you not?
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, we have a schedule to follow.
Jesus: Be at peace with this. I will be speaking with you again before you leave here. Write what I am saying.
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord.
Message of Aug. 21, 1994, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, do You wish to add anything?
Our Lady: Child, these messages are extremely important. The time is drawing near for My children when these words will be the very fabric to sustain many of My children who have found themselves without a place to pray. God has placed a great cross upon your shoulders, little one, but one that you carry with love and peace. My children must have calm in the midst of all this confusion and evil that surrounds them. That peace can be found here on this farm, and within you. God has given you a heavy cross that will grow even heavier, but He has also blessed you with many special gifts. He is allowing you the grace to pass on the peace you have been given, that lives within you, that radiates from you, and you are allowed to share it with others. You are not only allowed to do so, it is His Will that this be done.
When I spoke to you of this love and peace in the prophecy which was given to you in Medjugorje, you did not understand. Now, you are beginning to accept and understand the importance of what was being said to you. I thank you for listening and sharing this peace through My messages, praying with others, and witnessing to My children. You have been given special gifts, child, and they are to be shared. More is to come, and many more of My children will be sent here to you to share in this peace and love which is here for that purpose. Thank you for being an instrument that is willing to be used for the greater honor and glory of God. Thank you for listening and responding to My call.
The meaning of the words, 'You have finally come', that were said to you on the bus as you entered Medjugorje are finally becoming clear to you. The evil you saw and felt there was for a reason, child. I wished for you to know the evil one was trying very hard to wreck My plans, and much prayer was needed to stop him. Much prayer is still needed, and I am depending on the help of prayer groups such as yours to help Me crush the head of the evil one. Be not afraid, child, great graces abound for those who love God and are willing to give of themselves for the sake of others.
You are your brother's keeper. Love God and your neighbor as yourself, for the love of God. This is the greatest of all commandments. In praying for the salvation of your fellow man, you are following the commandment of God. In doing this, you can bring about peace for yourself, your family, and the world around you. As all else crumbles, seek God's peace, pray, and know I am praying with you. Go in the peace of My Son. Love one another.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother, for taking the time to speak with me.
Our Lady: Thank you for being obedient, and opening your mind and heart to My Son.
Message of January 5, 1994, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups
My Dear Children,
Why do you continue to search for a false peace in the things of the world? Don't you know that peace comes from God? Turn away from those things that do not bring a lasting peace. Turn back to My Son who is the prince of peace. Then, and only then, will you find the true peace that awaits you and will remain with you. God continues to call to you and remind you that those things of the world do not last. They bring temporary pleasures to you, and then the feeling is gone. God's peace will last forever. God loves you. Let Him draw you to His heart. Experience the love and peace He wishes you to have through the gift of His Son. Go in God's peace.
At the end of this message, Ruth Ann had the feeling that Our Lady wanted to say something else, so she said:
Ruth Ann: Is there anything You wish to add?
Our Lady: Child, no one seems to be listening. The messages are falling on deaf ears. Eventually there will be no more messages.
Ruth Ann: To me?
Our Lady: To everyone, child. I am only here for a time allowed by God. When My time is over, I will have to return to Heaven and leave My children to their own undoing. I am doing all I can for the time I am allowed. The rest is up to God and those who are listening to My call.
