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 July 28, 1993,
from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

Dear Children,

Know first of all that I am blessing each one of you for continuing to persevere in your prayers.  In a world too busy for My Son or prayer, you have continued to recognize both.  You have listened to My call for prayer for those who do not know to pray.  These great sacrifices do not go unrecognized.  Many ask, "Why does Our Lady give you such beautiful messages while so many terrible things are happening in the world?"  It does not help dear children, to focus on the bad.  This only discourages you.  Focus on My Son.  See Jesus in all you meet.  This will make it easier to love one another.  These are difficult times.  All who are aware of this know that much prayer is needed.  Continue to seek out the good in your fellowman.  Do not lose heart.  I am with you.  Praises to the name of My Son, Jesus.  Go in His peace and love Him, dear children.

 

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 Sept. 25, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, there are some things bothering me.

Jesus:  And these are?

Ruth Ann:  I guess You already know, Lord.  The business with the chapel.  Will You speak to me of this again? 

Jesus:  Little one, you are concerned about things that should not be of concern to you.  The design in the chapel is being placed upon another's heart.  What is being done is being watched over by your priest.  He has the wisdom and knowledge to see it done correctly.  He has been told by My Mother, it is to be the Fifteenth Station, and it has already been named, with Her approval.  What is your concern?

Ruth Ann:  Others keep saying things like, "The Blessed Mother is going to tell exactly how to build it, and what should be the focus."

Jesus:  Little one, you know this is not so.  So why do you let it bother you?

Ruth Ann:  I don't know.

Jesus:  Remember, you are only to listen and be obedient.  Share My word, and the words of My Mother.  But you need not be concerned with the mechanics.  You have shared your land, so that all the things My Mother wishes to have done here will be accomplished.  Others will see to it that they are done.  There is no need for you to concern yourself with things of that nature.  That is why man was given intelligence, and different gifts.  My Mother will tap those on the shoulder and call them to share the gifts that God has given them, to bring all of this to fruition.  For some, it will be their personal talents, and others it will be professional talent, for some, it will be prayer.  Many will send contributions.  But all those who are to be of help will be sent as needed.  Some will choose not to listen, and walk away.  But others will be sent to replace those who do not choose to be a part of all that is happening here. 

Again I am saying to you, do not be concerned about the chapel.  My Mother will see to it that it is done well.  She has told you where the chapel is to be, and that is all that is to be of concern to you.  She has sent one forth to do the design, and your priest will see that it is tastefully done.  You should not be concerned with what others expect.  Others did not expect a chapel on the hill, did they?

Ruth Ann:  No, Lord.  I kept hearing from others that there was supposed to be a crucifix at the top of the hill, and I kept saying, all She, Your Mother, has said to me is, "There will be a memorial to My Son at the top of the hill."  I didn't know what was to be there, and so I waited for Her to tell me.

Jesus:  You were patient and listened, child.  Some would not have done so.  You waited, listened, and were obedient.  Now, what is to be done will be done correctly.  My Mother has said She wished to have a chapel at the top of the hill.  She has said that your priest has spoken of a Fifteenth Station, and that this is to be the Fifteenth Station.  Your priest has named it.  It will fall into place, child.  Do not be concerned.  Right now, your biggest concern is to regain your strength. 

Your illness has been an aggravation to you, but remember to offer it up for the poor souls in purgatory, or for the conversion of sinners, and it will seem a worthwhile time instead of a time of irritation.  One must rest while they are ill, so why not give it a purpose?  Your illness could be the source of grace someone else needs for conversion.  There are so many things that My children could offer up for those who are in need of conversion; a job that is especially distasteful, an errand that they really don't want to do, a kindness done for someone that you'd rather ignore.  These and many more are things that could be done to help others save their souls.  No one enjoys being ill, but it is a fact of life.  However, the inconvenience and irritation of being unable to do the things one wishes to do, could be offered up as a sacrifice for others.  My Mother is calling My children to make sacrifices.  These are just a few examples of the kinds of things that could be done as sacrifices to help others.

There are many ways to make sacrifices, just as there are many ways to fast.  Fasting does not always have to mean food.  There are other ways to fast.  You can give up something that you enjoy doing.  Fast from a movie, a particular television show, or some activity you enjoy.  For some, it could mean not smoking.  Again, child, these are just some examples of what one can do to help with the salvation of the souls of others. 

You are concerned that you have received an incorrect message about My Mother speaking to you after all apparitions have ceased.  Do not concern yourself with this.  You have asked My Mother again and again, and She has said She will be here as long as you have need of Her.  What more can you ask for, little one?  Be not afraid, little one.  God is going to tend to all of your needs.  You are being obedient, listening, and sharing.  He will tend to the rest.  You will be told those things you need to know, and things that do not need to be told to you, will be placed upon the hearts of others.  Those who have other gifts to share will be touched when it is time to do all that needs to be done. 

Now, little one, be at peace with what I am telling you.  The mechanics of what is being done is not to concern you.  All will be done for you, and you can rest assured, it will be done well.  My Mother deserves nothing less than the best.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You Lord, for Your reassurance.  I really needed to hear that, with my backyard and side yard and so forth being in such a mess from the water lines for the building and restrooms.  I feel much better now that You have reminded me that You are in control of all that is going on.

Jesus:  Know this in your heart, little one.  God has a plan, and His plan is always perfect.

Ruth Ann:  Yes, Lord.  Thank You for taking the time to reassure me and put my mind at ease.
Jesus:  If only all My children would bring their concerns to Me.  I could put their mind and soul at rest.  But they continue to fret and try to solve their problems on their own, without My help, making wrong decisions and causing more and more problems for themselves.  If they would only listen, and let Me help them in their time of need.  I would be happy to do so. 

Now, little one, I know you must get on with your day.  Go in My peace.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord.  It is the first peace of mind I have had all week.  Thank You, thank You, Lord.

Jesus:  Bless you, little one.

 

Message of November 3, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord.

Jesus:  Yes, little one.  All is well.  Do not be concerned about tomorrow.  Sufficient are the problems of today.  Trust, little one, trust.  God is with you.

Ruth Ann:  I know this, Lord.  I have my good days and bad, but I know You will always be here for me.  I have been offering up my sadness over losing my little friend, my dog, for the poor souls in purgatory.  That seems to help, Lord.

Jesus:  I thank you for the gift of your sorrow as a sacrifice, child.  Does it not lighten your burden?

Ruth Ann:  Yes it does, Lord.  I need to learn to turn things over to You sooner, Lord.  Instead, I find myself having a 'pity party', which I know is just what the evil one likes for me to do.  It is so easy to play into his hands.

Jesus:  Child, that is because you live in a world of darkness.  The evil one is everywhere, and is continually discouraging, attacking, causing doubts, and dragging you down in whatever way he can.  Put your feet firmly on the path of goodness and light, and know that no matter what is being sent your way, that God is there to help and comfort you and your family in all that you say and do. 

Sometimes you may be over-whelmed by all that is going on in your life.  You must always remember to offer up all of your sorrows for the conversions of those souls in need.  What a beautiful sacrifice that is.  Be at peace, child.  God is in control.  No matter what difficulties arise, you will be given sufficient graces to deal with all that lies ahead of you.  Go in My peace, little one, love and trust in Me.  All is well.

Ruth Ann:  Thank You, Lord.

 

Message of Nov. 17, 1993, from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I am trying very hard to talk to you and record each day.

Jesus:  Little one, I appreciate your effort.  I know it is difficult and there will be days when it is not possible, but that is what I would have you do.

Ruth Ann:  I guess I can't imagine what You would want to say to me.  I am so unimportant in the scheme of things.

Jesus:  None of My children are unimportant, little one.  You have expressed the feelings of many of My children.  They think because they are not someone important in the church, such as a priest or nun, their work or prayers cannot be important.  Anything done on behalf of God is important.  The action is important, and therefore, so is the one doing the action.  The tiniest prayer said in faith for those in need is just as important as a day full of prayer from someone doing it because they feel they have to.  A kindness done for a neighbor for the right reasons, merits more graces than many works done out of habit, or lack of love.

Ruth Ann:  Are You saying we should be offering up all we do for the love of God as we were told as children?

Jesus:  Yes, child, I am telling you that works and prayers done out of love, and offered up for God to use for the benefit of saving souls, is something that merits much grace.  These are called sacrifices.  These are called penances.  Words that you hear very little of today in this world.  My children of today do not wish to give up or sacrifice anything.  What a shame it is, too.  They have so much, and God would have them share what they have for the benefit of others.  God has given much to many, and it is up to those who have much to share with those who have little.  There would be fewer and fewer of My children hungry and cold if man would follow the example set before him by their Jesus.  Many of My children hoard all they have for themselves.  'Love thy neighbor as thyself for the love of God'.  How many of My children follow this?  If you love someone, do you not wish them to be happy, comfortable, and cared for, all of the time?  That is how you should feel toward one another.  If that was done, there would be no poverty, no wars, and there would be peace throughout the world.  The remedy for all the problems of the world is contained in the golden rule.  'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you'. 

Ruth Ann:  That is the rule I used in my classroom throughout my years of teaching.

Jesus:  That was very important in the lives of your children.  It is too bad so much is being taken away from teachers.  There is a need for good wholesome values to be taught in schools.  This nation was founded upon a love for God and a love for one's fellow man, and much has been removed that could reflect this was ever the case.  There are still those who try by example to stress what is right and good, but many are afraid of the repercussions from parents who do not wish their children taught values or disciplined in any way.  This is sad but true.  Even though they are in the minority, they are the ones listened to and catered to by society.

Ruth Ann:  I see that more and more, Lord.

Jesus:  Once God is removed from your life, there is nothing left but an empty shell.  The same is true of society.  God has been removed from society, leaving an empty shell that has been filled by one just waiting on the sidelines for man to do his bidding.  Man has gone so far away from Me, he continues to turn his back on Me, and in some cases, he spits in My face.  He uses My name only as profanity in many cases.  It is through those who love Me that much will be forgotten.  It is through the prayers of My children who continue to be faithful, no matter what, that many who do not love Me now, will eventually come to the foot of the cross and ask for forgiveness.  I thank My faithful and holy ones that continue to strive for the good of man and do the will of God. 

All prayers are heard, but those in great numbers rise and make a mighty sound in the heavens above.  That is why it is so important to have many praying at one time.  There is strength in numbers, whether it be prayer or holy action.  Each person's prayers are important, as is each person, but put all these prayers together, and it cannot go unnoticed by the One Who created you. 

You say you are not important.  You are important, and so is the work you do.  Each person put on the earth has a job to do for the greater honor and glory of God.  One either follows the will of God, or having a free will, chooses to follow his own will.  That is man's choice.  I force none of My children to do My will.

Ruth Ann:  But You make it difficult to say 'no' to You, Lord, when the reward for doing Your will is eternal happiness.  How can one not follow what You wish for us to do?

Jesus:  Many don't, little one, many don't.

Ruth Ann:  Lord, I must do my morning prayers, and I also have chores to do today.

Jesus:  Yes, little one, I know you have things that need to be tended to.  I thank you for spending this time with Me.

Ruth Ann:  I am the one who should be doing the thanking.

Jesus:  You have, little one, in doing My will, you have pleased Me.

 

Message of Sept. 23, 1994,  from Our Lord Jesus

Ruth Ann:  Lord, do You have something to say to Your children?  There are so many suffering through sickness, loss of loved ones, need of jobs, and the feeling of being alone through all of these trials.

Jesus:  Little one, they need not feel alone.  Man does not understand why he suffers and others do not.  That is because he does not see the big plan.  If the suffering of one person brings about the conversion of another, it is well worth that suffering.  So many of My children have lost faith and trust in God.

Remember in your youth when you were told, 'Offer up your suffering for the poor souls in purgatory, or someone in need of conversions'?  These things are seldom done, and they are just as valid now as they were then.  God loves the purity of 'victim souls' willing to accept their suffering gladly for the good of other souls.  If man could be grateful for the bad that has happened in life, as well as the good, he could gain a better understanding of the workings of God.  God is in control.  The evil one is not stronger than God.  Sometimes 'bad' is allowed to happen in your life, in order to draw you closer to God.  Sometimes it is a 'wake up' call to help you realize just how good God has been, and is.  Sometimes He sends concerns as a 'reality check'.  It definitely is just that.  It is to let them know that God is always in control of your life, and best of all, He is the Giver of life. 

Man must never take anything he has for granted, not the material things he accumulates, nor his good health.  God can remove either, or both, at the blink of an eye.  That is why it is so important for man to have his life in proper perspective, God first.  Faith is such a blessing to those who have it.  It is something that cannot be given to someone else, but it is something to be shared.  Those who have no faith live in constant fear and dread when something extremely difficult happens to them, or those around them.  With faith and trust in God, you know all things happen for good.  God can take the worst of circumstances, and use it to the good of souls.  It is difficult for those without faith to see this, but it is so. 

No matter how painful the loss, God can use it for the good of others.  Many times, it is to win souls for Him.  It is difficult for My children to see this, but many situations work out for this very purpose.  How many times have you yourself said, if it hadn't been for your 'reality check', you would have gone on your merry way, seeking material things and being a lukewarm Christian?  It took you losing your health, and My intervention, to bring you to where you are today.  As a result, many other lives and hearts have been touched.  Had you been left to your own resources, you would not have survived.  But through My plan, and allowing the hardships in your life to continue to manifest themselves in many ways, you were forced to make a choice.  You chose to give all to Me.

Ruth Ann:  'Forced' is a strong word, Lord.  We have a free will.  You have told me that many times.

Jesus:  You do have a free will, child, and you had a choice to make.  You could have continued on ignoring Me and the importance of My being, or you could have made the choice to turn everything over to Me.  You made the correct choice.  But would you have ever come to the realization that I am in total control, if I had not continued to allow all these hardships in your life to continue?

Ruth Ann:  You are right, Lord, I would have continued doing all those things that were getting me nowhere spiritually, if You had not intervened in my life.

Jesus:  That is why it is so important for you to share these facts.  Many do not realize the importance of God and the turning over of their very lives to Me.  I can only work in the lives of those who are ready to receive all I have to give.  Sometimes it takes much pain and suffering to make My children realize that all is not right in their life.  I must come first. 

My Mother continues to call Her children away from things of the world, distractions that can lead to the loss of their souls.  Listen to what She has to say.  She is your Mother, and knows what is best for you.  Continue to share what I am telling you, little one.  These words are important to My little ones struggling in the darkness.  Help Me, help them, strengthen their faith.  Help Me, help them, realize that all is not lost, no matter what is going on in their life.  God is there, ready to pick up the pieces and make you whole again.  Love Me as I have loved you, little ones!  Have faith and trust in Me.  No matter how great your pain, I am here to help you on the road to the salvation of your soul.  Be at peace.

 

Message of Dec. 18, 1994,  from Our Lady to Prayer Groups

My Dear Children,

I thank you for responding to My call.  The needs of My children are great, and much prayer must come from those who realize this.  Hearts must be touched and broken open, in order to receive all the love that God has to give His children.  I am here to see that hearts are touched, that otherwise would continue to struggle in darkness.  I am here to draw you out of this darkness and into the light.  The light of love and peace awaits all those willing to open their eyes to see, and their ears to hear.  Most of all, their hearts must be open to receive a true conversion. 

Little children, do not continue to seek those things that are not of God.  Seek God first, and He will tend to all those things that will draw you to Himself.  Great sacrifices are needed from you.  God loves you, and wishes you to share in His peace.  Listen to Me, little children, I wish to help you achieve this peace needed in your life, and in your world.  I am with you to help you in any way I can.  Turn to Me and take My hand.  I will take you to My Son.  He awaits you with His love and mercy.  I am blessing you in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Go in God's peace to love and serve him.
