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 June 2, 1993,
My Dear Children,
I am your Mother. I am here to help you gain the peace that God wants all of His children to have. Pray for this peace dear children, it is more precious than any of the material things that man wishes to possess on the earth. Many of God's gifts go unclaimed because man is so preoccupied accumulating wealth. He has no time to talk to God, and ask Him for the gift of peace and other gifts, that would help him in his journey of faith. Love one another, let there be no jealousy among you. You are to unite in prayer for all the needs of my children who no longer pray. Each one of you is special. Each one of you has special gifts. Share these gifts to help and encourage others. Dear children, I love you, God loves you. Go in His peace.
Message of Nov. 17, 1993, from Our Lady to Prayer Groups
My Dear Children,
My blessing I give to you for you are in much need of blessings and graces. The world is full of unrest, and you being a part of the world, are experiencing the turbulence of doubt, fear, and unrest. Dear children, it is important that you focus your mind and heart on God during these troubled times. He is your peace and salvation. His love is a light that radiates throughout the darkness. My Son was sent to you as an example of light, love, peace. He lived and died for you so that you would know what God expects of you. Share your wealth that God has given you. Your gifts of prayer and praise, compassion and love, are to be shared in helping all those in need. Gifts from God are not given to keep, dear children, they are given to you to share. I love you. Go in God's peace.
Message of Nov. 30, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, You wish to speak to me?
Jesus: Little one, do you wish to listen?
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord. Is there something in particular You'd like to tell me?
Jesus: Only this, little one. Know that God is pleased that you are taking the task put before you, seriously. You are learning much by being unselfish with your time and sharing it with God and so many others. The teachings I am sharing with you are for all of My children, so when you listen, it is as though you were in a giant assembly hall, listening to an important lecture. The only thing is, you are the only one there taking notes, for all of My children who could not be there. See how important it is for you to listen not only for Me but for all those who were unable to hear. Would you have them miss a single word? No, for you know what I am saying is of great importance. I wish to thank you for listening little one, and for being obedient. I am pleased you continue to listen, write, and share what is being said to you, so that those who cannot listen will know what I am saying.
I would like to talk to you about gifts, child. So many of My children have been given special gifts and talents, and they continue to hold these gifts. Gifts are to be shared. They are not given to you for you alone to keep. There are so many gifts that are going to waste, because My children think that these were given to them alone. This is not true. Some continue to say to themselves, "What is God's will for me? How can I discern what it is He wishes for me to do?" Be attentive, My children. If you have a special gift, then know in your heart, I would have you share this gift with those around you. I was an example for you. I came from a very humble background, but I shared everything I had, including My life. I expect no less from My children.
Many of you say you have no special talent because you are not musically inclined, or artistically inclined. That does not mean you do not have something to share. Think of the corporal works of mercy your Jesus has stressed over and over, (visit the sick, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, bury the dead, visit the imprisoned, feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty). These are but a few of the major concerns that need to be tended to.
There are causes that need to be fought for, the abortion issue, to name one. These do not take special talents, but it does take time and effort. Time and effort that you should take so that the pain and suffering of your neighbor can find some relief. Sometimes, giving of self is a greater gift than being blessed with a special talent. We cannot all be gifted singers, artists, speakers, and so forth, but we can all be compassionate people who are willing to help our brothers and sisters. It is important to know these things. Anything you do to help the least of My children, you do unto Me.
During this Advent season, preparing for My humble birth, you should realize just how important these words are. Many will not experience the warmth of a home, family. These, the least of My children, are in need of the tender loving care and concern that comes from a love for your neighbor. The greatest of My commandments, 'Love God and your neighbor as yourself for the love of God'. If man would truly read and listen to what God is calling him to do in that one commandment, there would be no wars, no one without shelter, and no one hungry.
Share your gifts and talents, children. In some cases, it could be as simple as visiting the elderly who have no one to look out for them. How much energy and time does it take to speak with someone lonely or needs the help of someone running an errand? Put yourself in the place of one who is in need. Would you not want someone to take the time to tend to your needs, or the needs of a family member? What would your Jesus do? If My children would ask themselves this question when they are not sure what they should do, they would never have a difficult time knowing what to do and when to do it. Follow My example. That is why My father sent Me to the earth, to teach My children by example what is expected of them. The road is not easy, but once traveled, the rewards are great. Love one another, and show this love by sharing what God has given to you.
Ruth Ann: I will share what You have said, Lord.
Jesus: Go in My peace, little one. Thank you for listening and sharing My words.
Message of April 28, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Jesus: As your ministry grows, so will your faith and trust in Me need to grow. Much is ahead, little one, but you will be ready. God does not choose those who are not willing to be molded and used in whatever way He chooses. All is in His hands, little one. He is the divine planner. You need only to listen, do His will, and be patient. God's plan is perfect. Whatever He has ahead for you has been in the making for many, many years. The evil one will continue to come up against you and your family, but know in the end God will win. My Mother is assisting many in order to prepare them for the work God has in store. Minister to My people. That is your task at the present time. Do so with love and patience, just as I did nearly 2000 years ago.
Be an example. Be a role model. So few of My children have someone to look to for an example as living and doing the will of God. Too many look to role models of the world of darkness. They seek out role models in the rich and famous. There is nothing wrong with wealth. I, too, was in need of those who have money to help with ministering to the poor and My disciples. God will not ask you how much you have accumulated in your years on the earth, but He will ask, "What did you do with the wealth I gave you?" Some I have allowed to have more than others. Hopefully those who have much will share with those who have little or nothing. I have tried to be an example to My children so that they would have a role model to emulate. Those who have paid little attention to My example have not learned to share in love, wealth, time, and talent.
Ruth Ann: Lord, I really am not talented, so all I have is what You have given me.
Jesus: Little one, all of My children have a special talent. Yours are many. You seek to do the Will of God, you pray with My children, and you share your home, your time, and your life with others.
Ruth Ann: I was thinking in terms of artistic or musical talent, Lord.
Jesus: Little one, each one has been blessed in some way. You need not be blessed with all talents. Those who have the talents needed to make the farm grow and be fruitful will continue to be sent to you. They will tend to the farm, the grounds, and the buildings. All your needs will be tended to because you have sought to do the will of God.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord.
Jesus: I know you have much to do today. Go in My peace.
Ruth Ann: Thank You for Your beautiful words, Lord.
Message of July 5, 1994,
Ruth Ann: I'm allowed to speak with You any time I wish. I don't understand why this is true.
Jesus: You are achieving the ultimate goal of all My children. In the Garden of Eden, before sin, this was to be My means of communication with all My children. Through sin, mankind has turned his back on Me, and shut Me out. He no longer listened to what I had to say. If there had not been sin, all of My children would be communicating with Me in this manner. You have been blessed with a very special gift. This gift was given to you because I have chosen to do so.
Ruth Ann: But Lord, I'm a sinner. I still don't understand.
Jesus: This is so of all My children. I have chosen this gift for you, so you may share it with others.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord, this has touched me very deeply. I can't imagine being allowed to have access to You in such a way.
Jesus: It is because I know you will use the gift properly and with responsibility. You will not abuse, and have never abused, this special blessing.
Ruth Ann: Again I thank You, Lord, for this special blessing, unworthy though I am.
Message of Nov. 30, 1994, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, is there anything You wish to say to me?
Our Lady: Child, the time is nearing when I will no longer be allowed to minister to My children in the way I have been doing. God in His mercy has allowed Me to come to the earth and minister to His children in many ways, through many of those who were receptive to this gift. My heart is saddened for those who have not chosen to listen and take the messages to heart. As your Mother, I am concerned for the welfare of your souls. Many have listened with their ears to what has been said, but have not taken the words to their heart.
Many continue to search for answers that are not there, wanting to know the future. If My children would only listen to what has been said, and take it to their hearts, much pain and suffering could be avoided. But man continues to believe that he is in control of his life and his destiny. He gives God no credit for all that he has, and is. God does not care how much you have, but He does care what you do with what has been given to you. When you stand before the Throne of God on judgment day, He will hold you responsible for, and accountable for, the use of all He has allowed you to have in this world. For those who have been given much, much is expected. My children must come to realize that money and materialism are not to be the focus of their lives. There is only one God. There is only one life that is important, and that is eternal life.
Man frets over his earthly life, wanting to satisfy his earthly pleasures and desires, and he thinks not of his soul. Your life can end in the blink of an eye, little children, and all the material possessions you have gathered together, can be removed just as easily as it was given to you. Imagine yourself with all your material wealth and possessions removed. What do you have left? Is your faith strong enough to accept this kind of hardship? What if your good health was to be removed? Is your faith strong enough to be tested in such a way?
Focus on My Son. Tend to your immortal souls My little ones, and let God tend to all your needs. Arrange your priorities. Put God first. He loves you, and wishes your souls to be saved. My concern for you is great. You must choose to live for God, and not for the world. Your body lasts but an instant. Your soul lasts forever. I wish for your soul to be in Heaven for all eternity. Pray, dear children, and know I am praying with you. Go in My Son's peace.
Message of Dec. 29, 1994, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, I am listening.
Jesus: Little one, you seem to be concerned about the future. Don't you know you are in God's hands? Live each day to its fullest extent of your love for Me, and I will tend to the rest.
Ruth Ann: Lord, it seems like so many things come at once. My life continues to be a roller coaster ride. Every time something really good happens, then something goes wrong, or something bad happens, to bring me down.
Jesus: Little one, it is because you have not yet learned to put all things in God's hands over which you have no control. Life will continue to be full of ups and downs, until you are able to take all things in stride, knowing full well that I will tend to all your needs and concerns. Trust, little one, you must trust. Do not worry about tomorrow.
Ruth Ann: Lord, how can I not be concerned about tomorrow? You tell me my ministry is going to change, and I will be doing even more for You, yet right now, I am only doing those things that I was doing before.
Jesus: Little one, you do not even realize that your ministry has, and is, changing. You are witnessing at your farm weekly, are you not? This was something My Mother has asked you to do. She has said 'numbers' did not matter. She has said all hearts will be touched in some way. She has seen to those who need to be here. You do not have to do a thing. It will all be done for you. Either by word of mouth, or other hearts touched, the word will reach those who need to hear what you have to say.
Ruth Ann: Lord, after giving the talk so much, and hearing the stories that others share, I'm feeling I don't have that much to share.
Jesus: You are too close to what has, and is, happening in your life to realize all that has, and continues, to happen is a result of your testimony, messages, and praying for others. You are unable to see all the forest for the trees, little one. You are drawing My children back to Me. You are assisting Me and My Mother in the great harvesting of souls. Through your prayer, you are ministering to My children, and they are receiving healings, gifts of the Holy Spirit, child. You continue to feel you are not doing much, but remember, anything you do that is of help to Me in the salvation of souls, is important. You are not important, but the work you do on My behalf, is important. You need only continue to be patient, obedient, and trust. You are the instrument through which I am working, and will continue to work, until all I would have you do is complete.
Each of My children on the earth have been given gifts. Some use them, and some do not. Your gift of faith is a gift that is being used to help others. Faith begets miracles, little one. Those who have the faith to accept and receive these miracles, can touch the lives and hearts of those ready to receive. Hearts are broken open, eyes are having the blinders removed, and ears are being able to hear the words that God chooses them to hear.
As My Mother has said, little one, 'numbers' matter not. It is hearts that are touched, and souls that are being saved, that matter. Through the rippling effect, more and more will be touched. You are touching more lives than you can ever imagine. The messages given to you by Me and My Mother, are in print, and reaching out and touching many. Many can relate to what has been said to you, and can apply these same words to their lives. That is why I have said to you, this gift has not been for you alone. It has been for you to share with others. Questions are being answered for many, and many are finding strength in these words given to you.
As you struggle, so too, are My children struggling with all kinds of hardships. My words, given to you, are for them. They can read these words, and find a light at the end of their dark tunnels. As you grow and find peace, so too, will those of My children reading what you have written, grow and find peace. God's plan is perfect, child, and He can use those willing to be of help to Him in many ways. You touch hearts, and those hearts that have been touched, touch others. See how God works? Through the prayer and sacrifice of His humble servants, His work is being done.
You have been chosen to be His hands and feet, here on the earth. To minister to His people. This is not through your merit, but through God's love and mercy. Continue to listen, be obedient, and share. God's love is with you, as is the strength needed to continue on this journey of faith. Be at peace, and know I am with you as your life undergoes the growth needed to do all that is asked of you. Change will continue in your life. Know that this change will come, and graces and strength needed to do all that is asked of you, will be given to you.
Message of January 4, 1995,
My Dear Children,
As your Mother, I am here to be of help to you in any way you need. God loves you, and because of this love, He continues to find ways to touch you in a special way. Each one of you has been given a special gift. These gifts are not for you to keep, nor hide under a bushel. They are there for you to share. Just as a light is extinguished if it is covered, so too, are your gifts. In sharing your gifts with others, they are not only kept glowing, but they continue to grow and burst into a giant flame, to warm the hearts of all those with whom you share. Share your gifts so God's love and peace will radiate to those around you. Pray, little children. Accept the challenge I am giving to you, so that others may experience God's peace, and the beauty of God's gifts given to you to share.
Message of January 4, 1995, from Our Lady
Ruth Ann: Mother, that was not at all what I would have expected, 'share your gifts'.
Our Lady: Little child, do you not realize that this message is to encourage all those who continually refuse to share the many gifts that God has given them? You, of all people, should realize the importance of this sharing, and you also should realize the difficulty in sharing. Does your sharing get any easier for you?
Ruth Ann: No Mother, it doesn't.
Our Lady: There are many times you would like to forget that God has ever given you this special gift. You have been allowed to experience the special gift of hearing voices from Heaven, and yet, rather than share, you would like to forget this has ever happened to you. You would prefer not to share these words with others. Only they were not given just for you. If that had been the case, they would never have been given. Gifts are given to share, so that others too, may grow in God's love. In sharing your gifts, hearts are touched and brought closer to God. Any time a gift of love is shared with someone, whether it be a kindness of word or deed, good will come from it.
Love one another, children. I know this is difficult for some of you, because many of you have been hurt by others. Allow God to use this hurt to the betterment of mankind. You still do not realize that God can take the bad things that have happened in your life, and use them for His greater honor and glory. You must be patient, and watch this be done. It will be done, little children, in His way, and in His time. God has a way of out-giving and out-blessing each of His children. Those who remain faithful, and faith-filled, will not be abandoned. God loves you, and through this love, wants to show you just how much He cares for you, and all your needs.
Trust, little children, and know that God is watching over each one of you. He has not, and will not, abandon you. I am your Mother, sent here to draw you back to, and closer to, the gift He has given to you, of His only Son. If he loves you so much as to sacrifice His Son for you, would He abandon you in your hours of need? This would never be. Know that God loves you, and wishes you to be at peace with all that has happened, and will continue to happen in your life.
Ruth Ann: Mother, I am having a difficult time with this right now. My Pastor, spiritual director, and friend, has been removed from our church. How can I be at peace when I feel like my insides have been ripped out? This has been done with so much cruelty, that it is difficult for those who love him.
Our Lady: Child, it has been difficult for him also. Have you not stood by and watched how well he has handled this cross? Have you not learned anything from him in this hurt that he suffers? You speak of your hurt, and your pain. What of his hurt, and his pain? His life has been turned upside down, too, child. And after his studies in the Holy Land, he does not know where God will lead him. And God will lead him, because of his great strength and trust.
Trust, child, trust is what you must remember. It is true, you are experiencing change in your life, and you are not comfortable with change. But how can one grow without it? Be at peace, child, and know that in God's wisdom and mercy, there is a reason and a plan. Learn from the example of your priest. Trust that God will tend to all things. Through pain, suffering, and tears, comes a healing and a strength that had not been there before. Trust, child, and let God tend to all your hurts and needs.
Great blessings are in store for you and your priest. A door is never closed without another being opened. As this door is closed, so too, will another door be opened. God will not be outdone in His gifts for those who love Him. Be at peace little one, and know that God loves you. I am your Mother, and I am praying with you for all your needs. Dry your tears. Great blessings await you.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Mother, for being here to encourage me, and all those who are hurting over the loss of our priest.
Message of January 10, 1995, from Our Lord Jesus
Ruth Ann: Lord, do You have encouraging words today?
Jesus: Little one, each of My children is in need of encouraging words from time to time. You do realize, the more you try to be like Me, the more the evil one will try to convince you of your unworthiness to minister to My children. The evil one continues to torment those of you trying to do the will of God. That is because he is the father of lies. He wishes to cause doubt and turmoil in the lives of all God's children. It is not just My chosen ones that he continues to harass, but all those who wish to do the will of My Father in Heaven.
Be at peace, little one, you are being granted a respite, and you should be grateful. Instead, you fret because you are afraid you have offended Me in some way, and that is why you are not busy doing more than I would have you do. The Lord has work for you to do. Remember, this is the third weekend of the month, which means you will be very busy this weekend.
Ruth Ann: But, Lord, the groups are very small.
Jesus: You expected even fewer, did you not?
Ruth Ann: Yes Lord, due to the winter storm that morning, I really expected no one.
Jesus: I have told you, those whom God wishes to be here, will be here. It matters not the weather. You have also been told that numbers mean nothing. It is who is touched that is important. Those who are touched, will in turn touch others, through their witnessing. That is the way God works. You are only an instrument, child. You can do nothing without Me. So, know that the words spoken to you, and the people sent to you, are truly from Me. I will do all things for those willing to follow in My footsteps. You continue to be obedient in all things.
When I walked on the earth, I spoke the Word of the Father. Those who were to hear, had their ears opened. Those who were to see the miracles I performed, had their eyes opened. Those who were to be touched, took what was said to them to their heart. From that point on, their lives were changed. All you are asked to do, little one, is to share, and be a beacon of light for those struggling in darkness. Remember, if life becomes difficult for you, how must it be for many of My children who do not have access to hearing My words.
You have a special gift. You can speak to Me whenever you choose. You have access to the heavenly words of My Mother, the Holy Spirit, and God the Father. Be not afraid, little one, the words you are asked to share are here to give peace and hope to those of My children in need of this hope. All of My children struggle in some way, and yet those who love Me, continue to seek ways and means of staying on My path, no matter how difficult. These words given to you out of love, are there for you, but they are also there for all My children in need.
You are not to worry about tomorrow. Live each day in the fullness of God's love. He wishes you to have peace, and He wishes this peace to radiate to all those who come in contact with you. Your ministry is far from over, little one. Do not doubt the goodness and greatness of God's mercy. He has granted you miracles, and He has given you special gifts. These miracles and gifts are for you to share.
My Mother speaks of sharing one's gifts with others, in your message for prayer group this week. You did not understand the significance at the time, but later you came to know why the gifts that are given, are for you to share. The feast of the Epiphany, and the homilies surrounding that feast, reinforce the messages given to you by My Mother. You had doubts as to why such a message was given, but once again, God has shown you, that as long as you listen, and are obedient to His will, He will reinforce all you do, so you know that He is present in the words you share with others. All of My children are to share their gifts with others. No matter what the gift, it should be shared. Those who do acts of kindness to others, are exercising the gift of charity. The gifts need not be great. Not all of My children can be musicians, or great listeners, but anything done out of the love of God, or shared out of love for Him, can be a gift to be given to others. It is not the gift, but what one does with that gift that is important.
That, child, is why you are asked to share those things that God has done in your life. That is why you are asked to share the words spoken to you, and that is why you are to pray with those who come to you seeking prayer. Those gifts have been given to you to share. Be an example for those of My children who are unable to brave the storm of darkness that surrounds them. If they see you do those things you find most difficult to do, they will find strength and trust in their God, to have the desire to share with others their gifts.
You had lost your peace before speaking with Me, had you not?
Ruth Ann: Yes, Lord, I had.
Jesus: Now it has been restored. This is My gift to you, for listening and sharing these words I have spoken to you.
Ruth Ann: Thank You, Lord, for returning my peace.
Jesus: Child, you need not lose it. Trust in Me. Do not let the doubts and fears of tomorrow, darken the light of today. Be at peace, little one, living this day, and the respite being given to you. More is to come.
