[To be read before reading the book]
In this book I do not mention the name of the parish to
which Little Mary, who receives the messages, belongs, or
even mention the state in which she lives. The name of her priest spiritual director
is not given, nor the diocese in which she lives. I had a reason for doing this. What is
most important are the messages, not the messenger. As you will read below Bernadette
Soubirous of Lourdes knew it was important that people not be drawn to her but
rather to the messages of Our Lady.
Experience in doing much writing and lecturing has taught me that
get very excited and not realize what they are doing to others whom God
used or is using in a special way. In the book Francis I tell how
people would crowd
the house of this man who bears the wounds in his hands and undergoes the passion of Jesus every night. The
people almost ruined his family life. Even his children were discontinuing to
come home as the house was always crowded with people, those curious, those
seeking healings. They would practically trample over his wife to get to Francis
whenever he went places, even to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. People can
think they own those given special charisms.
Some can also attempt to use them for their own agenda. Others can be
harsh and seek
to destroy them. After the book on “Francis” came out, his wife told
me: “The book
had a great leveling effect. People finally realized what they were
doing to our
I to give names and locations, countless phone calls, attempts at house
calls, letters—going through every channel possible—could disturb the
peace and balance needed without proper meditation on the Messages from
the Heart of Our Mother which this is all about.
Each message is where the reader should place his or her focus and
meditate on them, not seeking some special favor. The messages appear
simple, but with meditation have a greater depth than first meets the
eye. I have often given my own commentaries after many of the messages
to indicate the depth of the message and help the reader who at times
may see much more than I have.
The messages have a flow to them. They do not represent the style with
which Little Mary normally speaks or writes. In my judgment, and many
others, the messages are not Little Mary’s. They are: Messages from the
Heart of Our Mother. As I neared the
conclusion of compiling these messages and commenting on them I finally
asked Little Mary about something that had bothered me. I told her that
I did not understand why the Blessed Mother on occasion would switch
from the singular to the plural within the same sentence.
An example: “A good confession takes time. One must examine their
conscience and be truly sorry for their sins. One must be honest and
then work on those areas where they are weak.”
As often happened in the past few years when we discussed spiritual
matters our Blessed Mother gave Little Mary an interior locution. On
this occasion of my inquiry of why the switch from the singular to the
plural she heard: The messages are directed to each person. They
are also intended for everyone.
Mary through the years was often reminded that the messages were for
the world. The Blessed Mother then was using a style of communication
directed to all, but desiring as a good Mother to have her messages
touch each and every one of her children. We should read them as if
spoken to each
one of us.
I do relate in the book a limited number of accounts of healings, etc.,
so as to give credibility to the messages. I do relate some of the
sufferings attached to the one given a special mission. Such sufferings
do not seem to occur to others not well acquainted with the messenger.
I do tell somewhat of the personality of the Messenger to help you
realize the manner in which the messages are given. All this is in no
way intended to make any judgment for the Church. I can see that the
bishops involved have to be responsible and perform their duty. We
should all respect that. The Church is always cautious, as it should
be, regarding reports of supernatural messages.
This book goes to print in the 150th year of the anniversary of the
solemn papal definition of the Immaculate Conception by Pope Pius
IX. This book goes to print also in the 160th year since
the discovery of St. Louis de Montfort’s book, True Devotion to the
Blessed Virgin Mary.
Devout Catholics will better understand the concern of
their heavenly Mother, the Mother of the Church, and her messages when
they have an appreciation of the role of Mary as Mediatrix of all
graces. Also, when they appreciate total consecration to our Blessed
Pope John Paul II in early 2004 used the 160th anniversary of the
publication of True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary to recall and
explain the doctrine of its author, St. Louis-Marie Grignion de
Montfort. The Pope owes his episcopal motto, “Totus Tuus,” to this
saint, an expression of his totally belonging to Jesus through Mary.
As a youth Karol Wojtyla received “a great help” from this book. “I
found the answer to my perplexity due to the fear that the devotion to
Mary, if excessive, might end by compromising the supremacy of the
worship owed to Christ,” the Pope said in his message to the Religious
of the Montfort family. “Under the wise guidance of St. Louis-Marie, I
understood that, if one lives the mystery of Mary in Christ, such a
risk does not exist,” said the Pope in his letter dated December 8,
2003, the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception.
St. Louis-Marie de Montfort wrote True Devotion at the start of 1700,
but the manuscript was hidden and ignored until “accidentally”
rediscovered in 1842 and published a year later. The saint had
predicted that evil forces would not want the book out and it would be
Pope John Paul II said that when re-read in the light of
the Second Vatican Council, the Montfort doctrine retains “its
substantial validity.” “As is known, in my episcopal coat of arms, the
motto Totus Tuus is inspired by the doctrine of St. Louis-Marie
Grignion de Montfort. These two words express total belonging to Jesus
“‘Totus tuus ego sum, et omnia mea tua sunt,’ St. Louis-Marie wrote,
and he translates: ‘I am all yours, and everything of mine belongs to
you, my beloved Jesus, through Mary, your holy Mother,’” the Holy
Father said. For St. Louis-Marie, true Marian devotion is
Christ-centered and becomes a privileged means “to find Jesus Christ
perfectly, to love him tenderly, and to serve him faithfully.” In this
connection, Mary becomes the faithful echo of God.
Placing Private Revelations in Proper Perspective
You are encouraged to read the messages meditatively. If one reads
rapidly, seeking something sensational or just reading out of
curiosity, the spirit of heaven's call to have the Word of God embedded
in our hearts—for a deeper conversion of heart to closer union with
Jesus Christ—will be missed.
A good program may well be 20 minutes a day—a maximum of 30 minutes—
meditating on points that especially touch the heart.
It is most important that what is written in this book be understood
according to these teachings of the Church:
66 "'The Christian economy, therefore, since it is the new and
definitive Covenant, will never pass away; and no new public revelation
is to be expected before the glorious manifestation of our Lord Jesus
Christ' (DV 4: cf. 1 Tim 6:14; Titus 2:13). Yet even if Revelation is
already complete, it has not been made completely explicit; it remains
for Christian faith gradually to grasp its full significance over the
course of the centuries.
67 "Throughout the ages, there have been so-called private'
revelations, some of which have been recognized by the authority of the
Church. They do not belong, however, to the deposit of faith. It is not
their role to improve or complete Christ's definitive Revelation, but
to help live more fully by it in a certain period of history. Guided by
the Magisterium of the Church, the sensus fidelium knows how to discern
and welcome in these revelations whatever constitutes an authentic call
of Christ or his saints to the Church.
"Christian faith cannot accept 'revelations' that claim to surpass or
correct the Revelation of which Christ is the fulfillment, as is the
case in certain non-Christian religions and also in certain recent
sects which base themselves on such revelations."'
of the Catholic Church—Second Edition
Public divine revelation ended with the
death of the last
John. The Church is still studying and meditating what public and
divine Revelations have been given her from God through the Sacred
Scripture and Tradition. Deeper insights into God's Word thus are
progressing. While private revelations can help us see what is already
in Scripture and the traditional teachings of the Church, any private
revelation is never the source of our divine faith.
With the multiplicity of reported private revelations and locutions so
widespread in the world at 'he present time, it is difficult for people
to know which, if any, can be trusted. It must, of course, be said that
all we need to know and believe and practice is already contained in
the Scriptures and Magisterial teachings of the Church. No one is
obliged to believe private revelations, even those major ones approved
by the Church as worthy of human faith. Private revelation does
The new bishop met with Little Mary during the first months of 1996,
together with her husband and spiritual director. His first
concern was that the marriage of Little Mary and her husband was solid
because this was her primary vocation. The bishop did not want
her life as a messenger to interfere with her duties as a mother and a
wife. After several meetings, the new bishop gave his consent
to her pastor, in April 1996, allowing this.
He urged Little Mary to read the messages after Mass and recite the
Rosary on Monday evenings.
About the same time Little Mary began receiving interior locutions from
Jesus on occasion. She was afraid to tell anyone this. Some
people were finding it hard to believe that the Blessed Mother was
truly giving messages—how could they believe that she was also hearing
Jesus asked Little Mary to begin praying with those who were coming to
the group. Jesus told her that all power comes from Him, her God. He
told her that He was going to bless her hands so that she could touch
His people through her hands and they would feel His love and warmth.
She was told to hold their hands while she prayed with them and to tell
them, when she was through praying, that they would need to go to
Adoration and tell Jesus what had been done. If it was in God's Will,
miracles would happen.
In 2001 Little Mary's spiritual director was required to retire as
pastor of the large parish because of age. It took some months before a
new pastor arrived. At the time of the publication of this book in 2004
this same priest was still acting as spiritual director to Little Mary.
Purpose of the Messages
I want to begin this book by telling you how I got acquainted with the
person known as "Little Mary" who receives messages from Jesus and
especially Our Blessed Mother. The messages are for everyone, for the
whole world. The circumstances which I am about to relate initiated a
spiritual relationship immediately thereafter. These have consisted of
frequent communications each week, as well as meeting her and her
husband personally from time to time. Hundreds of hours were spent in
this fashion. This aided me tremendously in my personal judgment and in
the preparation of this book over a period of three years.
In May 2001, just before the 84th anniversary of the first appearance
of the Mother of God at Fatima, I was invited to be the speaker at
celebrations honoring a new shrine to Our Lady of Fatima in one of the
largest parishes in the Upper Midwest. The pastor, ordained 50 years,
had wanted to build a shrine to honor our Lady as he celebrated his
50th anniversary as a priest of Jesus Christ. He was planning on it
being a shrine to honor Our Lady of Lourdes. Then Little Mary received
a message from Our Blessed Mother that the shrine the pastor envisioned
should rather be of Our Lady of Fatima. The pastor agreed and thus a
beautiful shrine was constructed on the parish property in honor of Our
Lady of Fatima.
There would be several days of special prayer and talks and I was asked
to be the main celebrant and speaker as celebrations were held
initiating the prayerful use of the new shrine.
On the way from the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport to the parish, the
pastor told me of a middle-age woman, 43 years old, who was receiving
messages from Our Lady and Our Lord almost every day, usually in the
morning. Each Monday evening up to 500 to 600 people on the average
would come to the church for an evening of prayer, lasting several
hours. And the people would stay. First there would be a Mass with
homily. Then a meditated Rosary, prayed slowly with meditations and
Finally Little Mary would read from messages received during the past
week. Then the pastor would give an interpretation of the messages.
Finally, those who desired could come forth to have Little Mary pray
with them individually. This was done in a side room close to where the
Holy Sacrifice of the Mass was offered. Hundreds of letters had been
sent to the bishop describing personal healings, some healings from
very serious afflictions.
I use the term here "Little Mary" to distinguish her from our Blessed
Interior locutions and Visions
In a book such as this it is important that readers have a good
understanding of the nature of supernatural communications, whether in
the form of locutions or of visions. It is not wise simply to rush
through a book of this nature looking for the sensational without
taking time to reflect upon our relationship with God and how He
communicates with His children upon earth. Thus early in this book we
present this chapter, always keeping in mind that it is through the
Church Jesus Christ founded, the Sacred Scriptures and Tradition of the
Church, that we primarily will know the Word of God and what are true
faith and morals.
Fr. John A. Harden, S.J., who, until his death in January 2000, was
theological advisor to the Fatima Family Apostolate, explained
locutions in the following manner: "A supernatural communication to the
ear, imagination, or directly to the intellect. The locution is
supernatural in the manner of communication, that is, beyond the
ordinary laws of nature. Spurious locutions may come from the evil
spirit and can be recognized by their lack of coherence or clarity, the
disquiet they cause in the one who receives them, and the evil effects
they produce in them who listen to them" (Modern Catholic Dictionary).
"Locution" is a word coming from the Latin locutio, "a speaking, an
utterance." Locutions of different kinds are received in different
manners as shall be explained later. We shall see that Fr. Hardon's
concise definition covers much territory and will become more
meaningful as we explore the various aspects of what he says.
St. John of the Cross's definition of locutions was simple: words
produced in the recipient by divine actions.
Thomas Dubay, S.M., in his book Fire Within—concerning St. Teresa
of Avila, St. John of the Cross, and the Gospel—on prayer, in a chapter
on Locutions and Visions, tells us:
"Perhaps the most opportune way to open our discussion on divine
communications is to consider the question of whether or not it
deserves space in this volume at all. Surely, some people would take
the view that in the scientific milieu and widespread literacy of
contemporary technological societies, the idea of special divine
enlightenments and messages merits at best a patronizing smile, at
worst outright ridicule. Even some religiously inclined persons,
including a fair percentage of clergy, give little credence to the
proposition that God does communicate, ordinary individuals. Many
people tend to take seriously only what they can see with their own
eyes or touch with their own hands.
The world of the supernatural—angelic, demonic and divine—does not have
much sway in-their day-to-day world of business and pleasure and
practicality. They feel that if there is something authentic in the
alleged phenomena reported by men and women of advanced prayer,
nonetheless they themselves cannot identify with it, for they hear none
of these messages and see no visions. Some, of course, flatly deny the
very existence of such communications and consequently have no interest
in a discussion of what they regard as illusory imaginings of more or
less unbalanced enthusiasts.
"But there is another group, by no means small in number, who gladly
embrace the notion of direct divine communications. Equally citizens of
our technological societies and sometimes well educated in their
respective secular pursuits, these men and women not only hold to the
theoretical possibility that God communicates with human beings but
also are often enough convinced that He has spoken to them personally
or at least that on occasion He sends them an inner light. They readily
speak of 'listening to the Spirit.' Some in this group build their
spiritual lives more on alleged apparitions and their own presumed
inner illuminations than on the word of the Gospel and the proclamation
of the teaching Church.
"Within both of these categories, the deniers and the affirmers, there
is of course a spectrum of reaction patterns. Among the former we find
the small number of atheists who profess no acceptance of anything
intangible and also theists who do accept the supernatural but consider
it antecedently unlikely (or at least rare) that God would communicate
with ordinary men and women. Among the affirmers there are the absurdly
credulous who are convinced that they are constantly privy to divine
messages and visions. Others steer clear of these extremes but all the
same are not as cautious as they must be in order to avoid different
pitfalls. They are insufficiently sensitive to the dangers of
illuminism, for instance.
"While pastoral experience shows that there are not a few men and women
in these two categories, it also indicates that there is a third large
group who are neither skeptical nor credulous. Study and spiritual
direction experiences with people of advanced, authentic prayer make it
clear that the subject of this chapter is much needed by all three
classes of people. Skeptical and overly credulous individuals assume
that they need no instruction. Each is convinced that its position is
quite correct and the other is obviously deluded. They scarcely
entertain the idea that there may be a middle position that is sound
"While our purpose is not polemical, it may be worthwhile to call
attention to the antecedent probability that a loving and provident God
would communicate with the human race He bothered to create and redeem.
Even aside from the data of revelation we would expect that a love
relationship between the divine and the human would be characterized by
a two-way communication. This is not to say that on the creature's part
recognizing the divine is invariably obvious or easy or free from
illusion. But it is possible.
"We have no more sound teaching on the question of divine
enlightenments and visions than what we find in our two Carmelite
saints [St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross]. Any unbiased,
sober, informed study of their experiences and their remarkably humble
yet brilliant explanations of them shows that God does indeed
communicate with His chosen ones—but not always as we commonly suppose
or expect. His ways are not our ways.
We do not aim here either at arousing or at satisfying mere curiosity
about extraordinary phenomena. We discuss them because, first of
all, Scripture takes it for granted that God intervenes in the affairs
Advancement in spirituality then is to be judged not by visions or
extraordinary phenomena but by the perfection with which one lives the
Gospel. This requires the virtues of humility, obedience, love,
patience, chastity, honesty, kindliness and all the virtues.
Both St. Teresa and St. John of the Cross were strong in holding that a
recipient of any unusual communications must share the experiences with
one's confessor or spiritual director. One should not act upon a
communication before getting permission from the confessor and/or
St. Teresa felt strongly that we should not desire visions. "I will
only warn you that, when you learn or hear that God is granting souls
these graces, you must never beseech or desire Him to lead you along
this road." Desiring extraordinary gifts indicates lack of humility.
Those desirous of being involved in the unusual spiritual experiences
can easily be deceived and misled. This is dangerous for their souls
and others "because the devil has only to see a door left slightly ajar
to enter and play a thousand tricks on us."
The above principles should be kept in mind in studying and meditating
upon the contents of this entire book.
For Priests, Religious and Laity
Like most priests, the position of the Fatima Family Apostolate and of
the author-compiler personally, has been one of caution at reports of
private heavenly messages. We hear from and about many supposed mystics
receiving heavenly messages. Most reported messages are put aside after
some study of them. Sometimes they are in
contradiction to Sacred
Scripture and the teachings of the Church, even though they are worded
Even when seemingly good messages are presented, but there has been a
lack of obedience—a following of the guidance of a good spiritual
director—in no way can we consider any of the material seriously.
The third chapter of this book on "Locutions" and spiritual
communications was judged by the author-compiler to be essential. Much
of what St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross describe about
locutions and visions I have noted in the life of Little Mary over
intensive and frequent communications, occupying hundreds of hours in a
several year period.
None of what is seen in the third chapter on divine communications was
shared with Little Mary until I was near the end of composing and
assembling the pages of this book. By nature she reads little. She had
not read the lives of the saints. In fact, when the locutions began she
did not know how to pray the Rosary and had no idea of meditation on
the mysteries of the Rosary. Her knowledge of the Catholic faith left
much to be desired, although she went to Masses of obligation, having
the example of her parents on this as she grew up.
I asked Little Mary, "What inspired you to get a spiritual director so
soon after you began to receive messages?" I then learned that Our
Blessed Mother herself had explained some of these things to Little
Mary, such as seeing with the Intellect and "eyes of the soul." Early
on after the messages began, the Blessed Mother told Little Mary she
should get a spiritual director and that it should be her pastor.
Our Blessed Mother also had to teach Little Mary how to pray the Rosary
properly. Meditation on the Mysteries is essential. The prayers were
not to be rushed.
On February 11, 1995, the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, exactly one
month after the messages began, Little Mary with her husband Terry went
to see the pastor. She informed him of what had come into her life and
asked him to direct her.
Without knowing it, over several years, Little Mary shared with me her
experiences that coincided with what is written in chapter three of
this book. Often she explained to me that the suppernatual
experiences at times involved
seeing with the " eyes of the soul" and seeing with the
intellect. She spoke of rapid, quick, beautiful and bright images
of Jesus, Mary, angels and saints. She spoke of her inability to resist
such visions. She would tell me that she would see with her mind.

The world is well aware of the terrible acts of terrorism in the United
States, which happened on September 11, 2001. I was on the way from
Australia to Damascus, Syria, when the acts occurred. I had been
speaking at various places in Australia for the Fatima Family
Apostolate and did not discover the destruction of the World Trade
Center towers, etc., until I arrived in Damascus. The month before,
August 2001, Little Mary had told me that Our Lady had said that the
ground would shake and life in the United States would change.
When I heard the sad news, upon arrival in Damascus, I immediately
remembered what Little Mary had said about "the ground will shake" and
"life in the United States will change." In the following year,
countless times commentators of the news would mention that "life in
the United States had changed...." It was reported in New York that the
ground shook as the planes hit and the twin Trade Centers came down.
The Blessed Mother said to Little Mary that some who died in the

MESSAGE #2211 from the Blessed Mother September 13, 2001
My daughter, Let the world know that there is a Heaven and a hell, but
also a Purgatory. Those who are in Purgatory must be purified before
they can see Heaven. My daughter, many prayers are needed for those in
Purgatory. Many suffer, especially those who have no one to pray for
them. The lower end of Purgatory is far worse than a burning building,
for how they long to meet Almighty God.
Today, I ask that all my children pray for those souls that are
suffering in Purgatory. I ask that you pray throughout the day, for
many souls are not prepared when it is their time to leave this earth.
Prayers are needed, my daughter, so that is why I have shown you the
lower end of Purgatory. All must come to know the truth so they do not
waste their time on this earth. All must believe in God and do penance
for their sins. All must strive hard to live a pure and holy, holy life.
I am here today to wake my children, for yet so many are sleeping on
this earth. Many souls are not prepared, so today I must wake my
children. I must remind all my children that you must obey all of God’s
commandments and live, live the Beatitudes. One must do penance for
their sins every day and be truly, truly sorry for them. One must
repent and then believe that God is merciful. One must truly examine
their conscience and not try to hide their sins from God. America must
wake soon, for so many have fallen away from the Sacraments. Many have
allowed their lives to become so busy they have no time for God. Yes,
many do not pray or fast because of their excuses. So many today have
no relationship with God.
I say to those who are
sleeping, wake up, wake up now. Turn your life around so you are
prepared to meet Almighty God. Come to Mass more often and receive the
Sacraments in the proper way. Relearn your Faith and ask, ask for God’s
guidance. Don’t wait for tragedy to strike, prepare your soul now. Give
up your selfish desires so you have more time to pray and converse with
God. God will show you the way if you truly seek Him. God will guide
you on this earth if you come to Him with an open heart. Yes, God will
truly be there for those who believe and trust, trust in Him.
Please prepare now,
for I am warning you, much evil exists all around this world. All must
be ready to meet God. All must be willing to give up their earthly
possessions. All must be willing to be purified on this earth and that
will not happen if you are unwilling to pick up your cross. Your
prayers and penance offered is soothing to God. Every act of kindness
that you do will truly lead you closer to God. By receiving the
Sacraments you will be healed in those areas where you are weak. Each
time you spend time with our Lord in adoration, you are showered with
His love and grace.
Please take heed to
this message and reform your ways now. Be good and loving children and
do not carry hate in your hearts. Forgive those who do not know Jesus
and pray, pray for their soul. Forgive and love all your brothers and
sisters. There will be another war, without your response. Without love
and peace in your hearts, many more lives will be destroyed. There is
no time to have hate in your hearts, only time to pray and love, love
So, please join hands
and pray for peace. Please join hands and pray, pray from your hearts.
Each prayer will save souls and will lead you and those in Purgatory
closer, closer to Almighty God. Amen.
Little Mary was shown the lower regions of purgatory and at first she
thought she was seeing hell. She was told "no" it was not hell but
purgatory, as the poor souls could not have been crying out to God for
mercy if they were in hell.
Little Mary explained to the author how terrible the lower regions
were— dark— "the souls, you could hardly see them." They were like in
dense dark clouds in rags, very sad. The Blessed Mother had hold of
Mary's hand and as they progressed to higher regions it became
brighter. The souls seemed happier. The higher one went the happier
they were and more light surrounded these souls.
Little Mary stressed how important it is to pray for the suffering
souls in purgatory. Many people forget the obligation to pray for the
"Wars are caused by sin." Our Lady of Fatima said that. It was also
said by early Church Fathers. Many people are living sinful lives
today—the couples living together without benefit of marriage, married
people disregarding the laws of God and His Church with respect to
human sexuality, and then, many of them going to Holy Communion in
mortal sin. Repeatedly we are told that ours is a time of mercy. A time
of justice is fast approaching.
While the souls in purgatory suffer greatly, especially those at the
lower regions, yet, they know one day they will enter heaven and
partake of the beatific vision of God for all eternity.
Messages from Jesus
While most of Little Mary's messages through the years since 1995 have
been from our Blessed Mother, occasionally they have come from Jesus.
The voice of Jesus is a mans voice, gentle, strong. The messages from
Jesus became less as time went on. It seems as though they were to give
courage to Little Mary and confidence in following His Mother's word
and in writing the messages.
from Jesus December 18, 1997
It is I who will judge you, not man.
My child, In the end,
I will be the judge, so be not bothered by how man sees you, for many
judge according to their likes and dislikes.
Many criticize yet
they know not the truth. This is a weakness that many need to work on
in order to better themselves, for pride and a heart filled with hate
will destroy one’s soul. Those who refuse to love their neighbor, allow
evil to enter. Those who refuse to be humble are prideful. Satan loves
a prideful man, because he knows he has but little time to pray because
he’s too busy criticizing those whom he finds fault in.
Those who do not take
time to pray will be tempted, for their focus will not be on Me. They
instead will become distracted by what other people are doing. This
happens because of curiosity, but in the end, gossip will be the
result. Prayer is what will help one grow; not your pleasures, but how
much you desire Me. Without prayer, one will not bear fruit, for one
cannot be guided if they never take time for Me. One cannot be taught
if they refuse to hear the truth.
I must warn you
because Satan has many snares and if you are not strong, this is how
you will fall into his web. The more trapped you become, the harder it
will be to get free, for you then allow yourself to become distant from
Me. So be not foolish, remain close to Me, for then I, your Lord, will
protect you from the enemy. I will help you so you do not fall into
sin. I will show you a better way so you learn how to cope in this
world. I will give you the strength that you need to endure all trials.
I will not leave you, for I will be ever so near.
I am merciful for
those who try hard. I do not condemn, I forgive. I am able to do this
because I am your merciful Lord. So come to Me, and allow Me to help
you, for then you will never have to walk alone. Open your heart wider
so that I can enter more fully. Surrender your ways, give them all to
Me, for it is only I, your Lord, who knows you better than anyone else.
I love you more than you can imagine. I yearn for you at all times. If
you love Me, then give yourself totally to Me so that I can hold you in
the palm of My hand.
Come now, don’t try to
do it on your own, for you will not be able to survive on your own. I
am waiting for each of you, so abandon yourself to Me. Peace will then
be given to you, for it is I who will judge you, not man. For I am your
Sovereign Lord, who cares deeply for you.
Mary, shy by nature, had much to overcome naturally with the mission
given her from above. Anyone who receives spiritual messages from a
supernatural source, such as locutions and visions, is going to be
under close scrutiny, criticism, and persecution.
One not accustomed to dealing with the public, and then asked to share
messages with the world, is in for some inevitable harsh criticisms and
questioning. With this general background we can understand why our
Lord spoke to her as He did December 18,1997.
"In the end, I will be the judge, so be not bothered by how man sees
you, for many judge according to their likes and dislikes."Many
criticize, yet they know not the truth...."
from Jesus - January 29, 1998
My child, In order to
be a true follower of Mine, you may have to do what you do not want to
do and you will have to give up all that you desire. It is all part of
carrying your cross and learning to trust in Me. I am preparing you, My
child, and in time you will understand.
The problem today is
many desire Heaven, but few desire to carry My cross. Many want
consolation, but yet refuse to accept the trials that come their way.
Many want instant answers, but refuse to wait patiently. This is so,
because many do not want to suffer or give themselves totally to Me.
This is because of one’s degree of love for me which, for many, is so
little. Many only praise Me when all is going well, but when unexpected
trials come their way, they lose trust in Me. Some then deny that I,
your Lord, exist.
Those who pray and
spend time with me will remain faithful to the end, for through prayer,
they will desire a deeper relationship with Me. For they will come to
know Me just as a friend and they will be given much peace and
security. They will feel joy no matter how hard it becomes. They will
feel joy because peace will always reign in their heart.
I come to you this
night because many of you truly do not know Me. If you knew Me, you
would then spend more time with Me. You would desire Me more than your
selfish ways. You would not hide from Me when you know that you have
done wrong. You would instead come to Me and ask for forgiveness. You
would make better use of the Sacraments. You would cleanse your soul
more regularly. You would receive Me in the Eucharist more reverently
and in the proper way. But, due to such little faith, many turn to the
world instead of Me.
I am truly present in
the Eucharist because I am your merciful Lord, who shed My blood for
you. I am totally yours when you come to Me, for I am able to be with
each of you. I am able to love you even when you offend Me, so immerse
yourselves in this love that I have for you. Come back to Me, for My
arms are always open. But come back before your time is up so that you
are ready and in a state of grace. I will help each child who believes
and who takes refuge in My heart. I will help you so you feel worthy to
one day be with Me. I will remove the bondage that prevents you from
coming closer to Me.
My love for each child
is deep and I desire you more than anyone else. So come, thirst in Me
and you shall be given drink. I am waiting for you because I am your
Sovereign Lord. My peace I now give to you, allow this peace to now
fill your soul....
Anyone who may imagine that one who receives heavenly messages thus
lives on a white fluffy cloud of glory is far from realizing the actual
situation. It changes the lifestyle of the person; in a family person
it generally changes things for the family as well. Much sacrifice is
involved, which means carrying a cross.
There is no authentic Christian life without the Cross. This is true
for an ordinary authentic Christian. Thus Jesus says:
"The problem today
is many desire heaven, but few desire to carry my Cross. Many want
consolation, but yet refuse to accept the trials that come their way.
Many want instant answers, but refuse to wait patiently. This is so,
because many do not want to suffer or give themselves totally to me."
The bearer of heavenly messages often must suffer many times more than
the ordinary Christian. Our Lord lives in His Church which is His
Mystical Body. He is present to souls and acts in souls through the
Sacraments. Jesus Christ Himself instituted the seven Sacraments. Thus,
Jesus will draw souls to the Sacraments, especially the Sacrament of
Reconciliation (Confession) and the Holy Eucharist where He acts and is
MESSAGE #1352 from Jesus
February 8, 1998 The greatest
healing is when one comes back to me.
My child, Continue to pray with
those who come and ask for prayer, for it is through prayer that they
will be touched in a spiritual way. I will guide them so the healing
process can begin. Tell them, My child, to believe that they will be
healed in the way that is best for their soul. Tell them not to doubt,
for I hear your prayers and their concerns.
This is the year where
many healings will take place because for many it will increase their
faith, but what one must remember is that the greatest healing is when
one comes back to Me. Your soul is far greater than your physical body.
It is your soul that needs to be nurtured most in order for one to
grow. Those who desire healing must return to the Sacraments, for then
they will have the grace needed to avoid sin. Through the Sacraments
they will become stronger in all areas of their life, for I, your Lord,
will dwell in them. Those who are weak will regain strength because I,
your Lord, will nourish them and nurture them in body, mind and soul.
They will be refreshed, for spiritually they will become alive again.
But, in order for
healing to occur, they must do as I say or their heart will remain
closed to Me. I cannot enter a heart that has become cold or closed to
My words. I cannot work interiorly if they refuse to cleanse their
soul, for you see, one must be truly sorry for their sins in order to
become strong warriors for Me. In order to love others, they must
forgive those who have hurt them. It is through forgiveness that one is
able to love themselves and those around them. Through forgiveness, I
am then able to heal your wounds. My people, it is time for you to
allow me to enter more fully so that I can heal those wounds that are
preventing you from coming closer to Me. Your wounds will become deeper
the further you fall from Me
The First Messages and Early Development
Before the messages began and she would read the messages to the
hundreds who would gather in the parish church on Monday evenings,
Little Mary was a quiet, rather shy, devoted housewife and mother. She
stayed close to home caring for her husband and two children. In late
spring of 1994 the parish school had a sign-up sheet for families who
wanted to have the statue of Our Blessed Mother, Lady of Fatima, in
their home for one month.
Little Mary signed up for the statue of Our Lady of Fatima, thinking it
would make a nice decoration for her living room. She was not yet into
prayer beyond obligatory ones and did not know how to pray the Rosary.
When later that summer she received a call informing her that the
Fatima statue was on the way, the family who brought it informed her
that she must pray the Rosary daily, pray for the priests and all
vocations, and pray in reparation for sins in the world.
Little Mary prayed for these intentions each day. She did not, however,
pray the Rosary. She had forgotten how.
Little Mary repeatedly told the author who compiled this book that when
the messages began she did not know how to say the Rosary. This made it
incomprehensible when later it was suggested by authorities that the
messages were simply the fruit of her meditations.
Little Mary had forgotten why we pray to the Blessed Mother. She feared
that in praying to the Blessed Mother she would be taking away from the
glory she and her family must give Jesus Christ. Thus she prayed to
Jesus and asked Him to help her see the role of His Mother in His light.
I hesitated to place into this book a most vivid and real-like dream
Little Mary had which seemed to prepare her for what was to follow. I
did not want readers to think the messages were the fruit of dreams.
However, the late Fr. John A. Harden, S.J., one of the most prestigious
theologians in the United States, and for many years theological
advisor to the Fatima Family Apostolate which I direct,
defined "dreams" in his Modern Catholic Dictionary as follows:
"The effect of psychic activity
protracted in sleep. Their religious significance derives from many
sources, not the least of which is the frequency with which the
Scriptures speak of dreams, in the Old and New Testaments, and indicate
that sometimes God used this means of communicating with human beings."
Below is how Little Mary described her dream which prepared her for
what was to come.
"I was standing in
the woods and saw a light above the trees. A voice softly said to me:
'Pray the Rosary and I will protect you.' I knelt down and began saying
the Hail Mary and Our Father and the light started coming closer. I
said, 'I don't know how to say the Rosary.' So I kept on praying and a
beautiful lady appeared with a pure face; she had no blemishes. I was
in awe, thinking, 'Oh! what a beautiful young face. If only I could
have her face!' She stood beside me and wrapped her long blue veil
around me and said, 'I will protect you. 'For the next three hours, on
the hour, I woke up thinking about the dream. I have never felt so
peaceful or protected. The next day, I felt so light on my feet. From
now on I will never doubt the Blessed Virgin Mary again, as she was so
beautiful and loving."
Little Mary shared this dream with her husband and a dear friend. The
next day her seven-year-old son brought an angel costume up from the
basement because he liked to pretend he was an angel and fly around the
house in it. On this particular day, Little Mary remembers being tired,
with her mind wandering often to the extraordinary dream the night
before. She told her son to put the costume away because she did not
want the commotion. Her son answered by saying, "Mom, today I want to
be Mary and if you kneel down and pray, I will protect you." Little
Mary was so overwhelmed at her son's words as these were the very same
words in her dream.
It was after this dream that Little Mary began to get words in the form
of interior locutions from Our Blessed Mother every evening when she
would put her three-year-old son to bed. Little Mary would often have
to lay down with him so that he would stay in bed and fall asleep. It
was at this time that Little Mary would hear the same beautiful voice
that was in her dream. These evenings were wonderful and peaceful to
her. She would wait anxiously for her son's bedtime so she could hear
the wonderful words which our Blessed Mother would relay to her.
What is a "locution"? Fr. John A. Harden in his Dictionary quoted above
defines "locution" as follows: "A
supernatural communication in the ear, imagination, or directly to the
intellect. The locution is supernatural in the manner of communication,
that is, beyond the ordinary laws of nature. Spurious locutions may
come from the evil spirit and can be recognized by their lack of
coherence or clarity, the disquiet they cause in the one who receives
them, and the evil effects they produce in those who listen to them."
Little Mary hears the distinct voice of the Blessed Mother Mary, and
occasionally of Jesus. I asked her if she hears as clearly the voices
as when I talk to her on the phone. The answer was "Yes."
From the beginning of the messages our Blessed Mother would speak in
words that Little Mary described as poetic. There would be a beautiful
flow to the words. Blessed Mother would tell her how much God loves her
and how special she was to Him. But in the messages this is said about
all of God's people and His desire that all be saved. She would speak
about heaven and its beauty and how Little Mary was chosen by God from
conception for a very special mission. Although Little Mary had no idea
of the extent to which God would use her, she felt wrapped in a cocoon
of pure love. Little Mary shared this with no one; not even her
husband. She was afraid he would not believe her because it was so hard
to explain how she hears Our Blessed Mother.
the Blessed Mother kept asking Little Mary to write. She kept telling
Our Blessed Mother that she had the wrong person. Yet, Blessed Mother
kept asking her to write. The first messages she wrote she tore up
afterwards, hoping that then Our Blessed Mother would choose someone
else. She did this during the first six months when she would hear Our
Blessed Mother talking.
Finally, on January 11, 1995, Little Mary wrote her first message which
she kept. The original messages, torn up, would be dictated to her
again. The Blessed Mother thus had to convince Little Mary that she was
chosen to be a messenger and heaven would not change on this. During
the first days she would sometimes receive a message both in the
morning and in the evening. You will notice that in several incidences
there are two messages for the same day.
The first messages were relatively simple. At this early stage Little
Mary was not well developed in spirituality to any depth. The messages
in some way are different in approach than they will be after Little
Mary begins to mature more spiritually, especially through the
suffering and experiences with people who are more spiritually
advanced. Little Mary is also not yet adept at taking the
messages so smoothly, willingly, and quickly as she does in time to
come. After Little Mary has been taking the messages for some time,
anyone who has seen her writing down the daily messages is astounded at
the speed with which she writes. Yet, the writings are clear, easily
readable. In this manuscript the compiler took almost every message
from Little Mary's own handwriting. Below are the first messages:
11,1995, Wednesday Be Silent and Hear My Words.
My daughter, I
have protected you. You were a virgin but then chose to become a
mother. Look to the highest and crown Him with many crowns. Jesus
reigns and is above all the earth. Cast away all your doubts and remain
with us. This earth is so full of sorrow and doubt. Look to the skies
because God can fulfill your every need. He had promised to keep you,
hold you and protect you for He is your true Father and I your true
Mother. Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say, rejoice. Be silent and
hear my words for I am with you. Look at my heart as I am in yours.
January 12,1995, Thursday From the Lord Jesus: Look
Inside the Flower.
inside the flower. There was once this tiny seed. Now your petals will
open and you will blossom and grow in me. Keep your yes open and beware
of dark times. Blessed is the fruit of the womb, Jesus. Stay close to
me and you will see the glory and power of eternity.
Our Blessed Mother ask for prayer groups
February 24,2003, Monday
Keep your hearts open to the graces 'which are pouring forth from my
My daughter, Those who speak the truth
must also live it. They must be an example to all their brothers and
sisters. They must be patient, kind, and loving and treat others with
respect. It is time now to truly live the Gospel. It is time now
to go forth and be a witness for Christ. It is truly time now to go
forth and be a witness for Christ. All that I am teaching you, must
flow, flow from your hearts. In order for these messages to be spread,
love and joy must shine through you. So today I ask that you begin to
live, live, live these messages. This is a time of mercy and peace so
please be merciful and allow God's love and peace to be a reflection
from the way you are living your lives.
Lead holy lives and keep your souls
focused on my Son Jesus. Keep praying, fasting and turning your hearts
to my Son. Pray the Rosary often and meditate on each mystery. Pray,
pray from your hearts and allow my grace to transform your lives.
keep your hearts open to the graces which are pouring forth from my
Immaculate Heart. Please keep your hearts open so you can begin today
to live all that I am teaching you. Each message is so important and
through prayer and receiving the sacraments they will become embedded
in your hearts. It is out of pure love and concern that
I turn my Heart to each of you. Feel my love and concern today and do
all that lam asking of you. I truly am with you and if you do what I
ask many more souls will be saved here. Many more will turn to God and
they will come to know our love, our peace, and our joy. Amen.
The Second Vatican
Council in the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, chapter 8,
described Mary as Mediatrix of Grace. We know that Jesus Christ, her
Son Incarnate, is the one essential Mediator and Source of all grace.
Yet, in the economy of salvation, Mary as Mother of Jesus Christ and
Mother of the Church, has a most important intercessory role with her
Son, Jesus Christ. She has graces from Jesus Christ to bestow, but we
must ask for them.
The mind and intellect desire to know the truth. The Catholic Church
alone is the fullness of true faith, with its deposit of faith received
from Jesus Christ. We must seek this truth, not simply to know, but to
respond in love, to live the truth.
To be effective instruments to evangelize, to draw other souls to
Christ, to His Church, we must be worthy vessels and reflect the joy of
possessing the truth by the way we live."In order for these messages to be
spread, love and joy must shine through you."
Chapter 10 A Time of Crisis — Time
of Growth and Purification
Testimonials to the
Powerful Intercession of Our Blessed Mother Mary
Wednesday, 7:30 A.M.
My daughter, Say many prayers so that peace and unity can be restored
all around this world. Pray, pray each new day for there is much
division taking place on this earth. Many are not listening to God and
many sins are committed each new day. The forces of evil are strong due
to lack of prayer and true devotion to Our Lord.
Today I am also asking priests to pray, pray for their flock. I am
asking priests to join hands and pray, pray with one another. I am
asking for more prayer, so please tell my beloved sons that they too
must join hands and pray, pray with one another.
The time is drawing near and you will each need to be strong, strong
for Christ. Many signs will occur as a warning to wake those who are
sleeping. Those who deny God and who refuse to take heed to His
warning, will suffer, suffer tremendously.
Earthquakes will shake this earth and they will cause much destruction,
especially in those areas where much sin is taking place. Man will no
longer be able to hide and much will be taken away. God's justice will
be felt all around this world for sin has become widespread. This world
will suffer if man does not listen and amend their ways. Darker days
will come if man does not change and repent of his wicked ways.
Yes, many, many will suffer if they don't wake up soon. Everyone must
pray and do penance. All must repent and turn to God before it's too
late. God's mercy will be great to those who repent.
My chosen sons must not delay. They must gather their flock and pray,
pray more. They must rescue those who have been led astray. I say to
each of you, listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit and then do your
part to save souls. Do all that you can now, for many souls are in
A great punishment will truly happen if you do not pray more and live,
live the Gospel. There is no longer time to be silent. You must witness
in love, you must teach others to pray, for it is through prayer that
they will come to know Jesus.
Please take heed now to my motherly request for I do not want to see
souls perish for all eternity. Pick up your cross, pick up your sword
and go forth now and live the eternal Word. Go forth in love, pray and
atone and be true servants for Our Lord. Amen.
The warning from Our Blessed Mother of earthly punishments to come if
mankind does not repent, if so many living lives of mortal sin do not
nothing new in the history of apparitions. These warnings have been
given more and more frequently. Already back to June 12,1973, through
Our Lady of Akita, Japan, the messenger being Sr. Agnes, such warnings
were given. They received recognition by the bishop of her diocese and
even Cardinal Ratzinger of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the
Faith. The message of Our Lady of Fatima contained the warning of World
War II while World War I was still in progress. Can we say the world is
less sinful today and the warnings of Our Blessed Mother are not so
Consider these words of Mother Mary seriously:
"Yes, many, many will suffer if they don't wake up soon. Everyone must
pray and do penance. All must repent and turn to God before it's too
late. God's mercy will be great to those who repent.
"My chosen sons [priests] must not delay. They must gather their flock
and pray, pray more. They must rescue those who have been led astray. I
say to each of you, listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit and then do
your part to save souls. Do all that you can now for many souls are in
17,2003, Tuesday, 7:30 A.M.
My daughter, lam here, so please write and relay my messages so more
come to know our dear Lord Jesus. Many today need to hear the truth, so
please do not delay. Set time aside to pray more so your focus is on
Jesus and not the world. The world will pull you away from Jesus if you
don't pray, pray more. All my children must do the same if they truly
want to build their relationship with our Lord. Each child must make time to pray and
honor God. Without prayer and sacrifice you cannot stay strong, strong
for Jesus. Today I must remind my children to pray, pray more.
Respond so that more
can be accomplished on this earth. Respond and be confident that God
knows what is best for you. Respond by truly using those gifts God has
given you. Trust in God
and be dependent on His love, mercy, and direction. A response is truly
needed in order to take part in saving-souls. So please take quiet time
and listen, listen to God. Take quiet time and I promise you God will
fulfill His divine plan in your lives. God will touch you in a special
way if you make time, quality time to be with Him.
Now please obey and do
your part so more souls can be saved. Through prayer and mercy
conversions will happen. Through prayer and true devotion to Our Lord
you will be led in the right direction. Now please keep your focus on Our Lord
so you grow and blossom. Keep your focus on Jesus and devote more time
for prayer so you are true servants for Our Lord. Amen.
It is to be noted in the messages that never are they designed to lead
souls to Mary, or replace Jesus with Mary, but it is always our loving
Mother Mary leading souls to Jesus, to the Church, to the Sacraments
through sincere prayer.
Those who hear only superficially or indirectly of such messages, and
are preoccupied with many busy things, can too easily conclude that
they are not balanced and is a case of trying to replace Mary for
Jesus. But listen to the words: "If you allow yourselves to become too
busy, then your focus will not be on Our Lord. Please take time to be
with Jesus each new day. Please pray and then surrender
