A Vision of a Burnt Out City

During my quiet times I received a very disturbing vision. I saw I believe a great big city that a fire went through it. I am not sure if it was the efforts of a nuclear or a comet or what? It was flattened and had only one sky scrapper standing. The whole city was like charcoal. Very lifeless looking and all grey. There was no colour except in one spot. The thing that really impressed me the most was, there was a very faint light in one spot. It was faint and weak looking. It seemed to be a person or a family that had survived.  The person seemed to be turning to Mary the Mother of Jesus for help. I saw a picture of a woman that had the clothes of that era that Mary was alive in, and she looked liked a religious picture of Mary also. So that is why I thought the person may have been praying the rosary for example. I also saw what looked liked a solid stone circular shaped that had a round hole in it and it was like in the air. The power that came from that hole was all powerful and merciful, flowing from it. It was pouring out from the hole I believe to the person praying. Jesus sacrifice still made Mercy possible even in the times of God’s great Justice. I believe also Mary is a very important intercessor during those times, because peoples faith might be too weak to believe God will hear their prayer.I felt God was showing me that even though the persons’ faith was weak it was also powerful, because God is powerful.

isWNUVGOVLWhen we say the rosary, we are actually meditating on scripture and asking Mary to pray on our behalf. Saying the rosary has 15 promises attached to those who say it. The promises were not made up by somebody, but came from God through Mary to two saints to spread the devotion all over the world. The saints were St. Dominic and Blessed Alain. At Fatima (1917) Our Lady said: “I am the Lady of the Rosary. Pray the rosary every day to obtain peace for the world.” So that is why I think the person was saying the rosary. The person’s faith was weak, but because God is a very generous and even during His wrath the prayer was strong. You only need a faith of a mustard seed to move mountains according to what Jesus teachings.

So I think this vision is to encourage people to realise doesn’t matter how weak your faith is, it is still important to God and God will act on it. I also believe this vision is also backing up the importance of the communion of saints. Alone we can’t make it, but with the help of all the angels and saints in heaven, we have a strong army of people helping us, who are in a very good position to intercede for us. They made it and really have faith in God’s mercy, because they see it in all its glory, even in times of what looks hopeless to us. It is never hopeless to God. But there is a prophesy in Revelation in the back of the Bible that the Anti-Christ will rule the earth for three and half years. During that time the martyrs are going to be cruelly tortured like never known in history. So they are in need of prayers now. I pray for them even now, because I know God will answer them. The more we pray the more we will help them. To me prayer is a bit like saving your money. The more you can save the more expensive an item you can buy. Just look at houses for example, the more expensive it is the grander it should be. Our prayers to me are like that, the more we prayer the more help will come their way if we pray in faith and humility and love.

How to Strengthen Our Hope in Times of Troubles

The world is full of horror and there is so much fear abound. When we see repeatedly sad and tragic news all the time and more news of bloodshed can make way for crippling fear to take hold of us if we let it. If that is all we think about, we then become defeated of all hope of ever making it safely in this world. If we do what St. Paul teaches us, which came from his own experience in prison?  He tells us to keep our minds on all that is good and positive. Things that uplift us. Everything that glorifies God, which will keep our minds off what is going on that is negative in our lives to take a hold of us. Have faith that God uses even what is negative in your life, for His great glory. He can bring good out of evil, if we give it to Him in confidence. All this will help tremendously overcome fear and going the way of the world.

St. Pauls Example

When we look at how St. Paul was treated in prison, can be very helpful. He would have been told repeatedly how weak he was for believing in the crucified Jesus. And how much he would have been laughed at for his faith. Saying he was living in a fanciful world of his own making. Just think of the constant insults and bullying and beatings he had to endure daily for his faith in Christ Jesus. The prison was depressive and ugly enough to make anyone live in despair. Yet he kept his eyes off himself and on the goodness and on the promises of God. He tells us to pray without ceasing, it got him through. Praising God is the highest form of prayer. It is so powerful when you do it from the heart and out of love for God. When you are genuine, it so powerful words can’t describe.

isML02FNOPHow I Got Through My Fears

I so believe in the communion of saints. Mary of course being the most powerful in times of trouble. Meditating on how Mary had such abundant faith in the goodness of God and how she must had and still cherish everything about God. Marys love and strength is worthy of meditation, we can learn a lot from her humble obedience in serving God. Even though the Bible says very little about her. The little it says is so powerful, if we take the time to meditate on her faith and love of God. I use to repeat the same short prayer of encouragement over and over again trying to keep my mind off my problem and on the love that God had for me, while waiting in line of the supermarket to be served. Not because I was holy, but just in order to be strong enough to do my shopping and it helped. And it also trained me to pray without ceasing in order to survive. If I didn’t do it I would have never been able to do anything at all in my life. My life has always been controlled by fear. The fear of people.

isVJF7ODZBMary’s Example

Luke 1:45

Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.

What faith must hers have been? How much her faith got her through all her circumstances, her fears? How she grew through her childlike faith. You can’t have this kind of faith if you always looking at all that is evil in this world. Her eyes were on God all day and all night. Her Son Jesus’s face was always before her. She would never been interested in all the negativity around her when she saw the gentleness, kindness and the beauty and peace that surrounded her Son Jesus. She was always in the presence of the Almighty One. How could she handle all those years as a refuge, running from danger all her life, if she did not centred her thoughts and heart on how wonderful and powerful and mighty in strength is the Lord Our God that protects us. We must do the same. What you feed your mind all day long becomes your reality.

Evil spirits do enter in you, if you keep dwelling on only the negative. When they get a strong hold in you, it doesn’t mean the end. Keep fighting back the way Mary would of. Praising God’s goodness and love all day long. In that way the Holy Spirit will grow in you. The more space you give Him to dwell in you the stronger His presence will be felt in you and the more power you will have to release in handling your problems. Making you victorious in whatever situation you find yourself in.

My Earthly Mothers Vision

My earthly mother told me once that she had a vision from God. She saw the evil one was represented as something solid like an iron rod and God was like air, soft and gentle. The iron rod in her vision was going with such force of hatred and anger towards God, to attack Him. My mother was frightened as it was getting closer to God. What she saw was the iron rod that represented evil was trying to beat very hard at the soft gentle air like love of God. It couldn’t do any harm at all to it. It needed something hard and solid like itself to hit onto. So you see how Satan is going to attack God’s children in the same way. He needs hardness to be able to hurt you. If you are always praising and loving God and loving one another there is no hardness, but softness. Love is soft. Anger and hatred hardens your heart. And when we are hard that’s when he can attack and hurt you. Negative thoughts harden you.

If you keep reciting beautiful uplifting verses from the Bible that floods your soul with confidence in God’s protection and love for you. The enemy has nothing to hit at you. There will be nothing he can grip onto. If you refuse to buy into the lies of Satan and instead praise God come what may, your faith and hope in Him comes alive and you will receive Our Loving Father response to your loving confident words of Him. You win victory after victory. Remember God is for you, Satan is against you. God is not going to condemn you for thoughts that you have not put in your head voluntary. But Satan will put all terrible things in your head and act as if you did it. Not all your thoughts are your own. God will convict you if you did something wrong, so as you understand not to do it again. But always out of love and He always forgives a humble, contrite heart. God is our loving Father, not an evil tyrant. He want to cradle you in His arms if you only believe. God wants to heal you.

Psalm 40:2

He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.

The Chaplet of Our Lady’s Tears

isML02FNOPYou will need the Marian Rosary of 59 beads.

Begin as follows:

Replace the Creed with:

“Crucified Jesus! We fall at Your feet and offer You the tears of her who with deep compassionate love accompanied You on Your sorrowful way of the Cross. Grant, O Good Master, that we take to heart the lessons which the tears of Your most holy Mother teach us, so that we may fulfill Your holy will on earth, that we may be worthy to praise and exalt You in Heaven for all eternity.”

Replace the Our Father’s with:

V. ” O Jesus look upon the tears of her who loved You most on earth,” R. “And loves You most ardently in Heaven.”

Replace the Hail Mary’s with:

V. “O Jesus, hear our prayers,” R. “For the sake of Your holy Mother’s tears.”

At the end of the Chaplet, say 3 times the following:

V. “O Jesus, look upon the tears of her who loved You most on earth,” R. “And loves You most ardently in Heaven.”

Say the following prayers at the end of the Chaplet:

“O Mary, Mother of love, sorrow and mercy, we beg you to unite your prayers with ours so that Jesus, your Divine Son, to Whom we turn may hear our petitions in the name of your maternal tears and may give us in addition to the favours we ask, the crown of everlasting life.” Amen.

Quiet often I do things a little differently. I am on my own, so I just say the V. and the R. by myself. I have never been told personally what V. and R. stands for, but I suppose it is the leader and the follower. Another thing when I said it once, I imagine myself praying with everybody who was asking a favour from Jesus in the whole world. I just believed it made God very happy, so now I do it often. To give somebody who is praying with a little extra help from Mary.




Prayers of the Rosary. Part 2

isPLLWHJ3SFirst step is sign yourself with the cross and then after you kiss the crucifix you then say the Apostle Creed which is said as below.

I believe in God, the Father Almighty. Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; on the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Note:  When we say I believe in the Holy Catholic Church, we are talking about the traditional teachings of the Orthodox Catholic Church. This new pope Francis is not recognised by God. I have heard it twice, once by a prophetess of the name Maria Divine Mercy, who was told the keys of the Vatican was returned to heaven when Pope Benedict resigned as Pope. And a young Spanish seer from Garabandal in 1961 was told by Our Lady how many more popes were to be before the end times and Mary said one of them she doesn’t recognised. Pope Francis is not teaching the true Catholic teachings at all, he is a danger to the church, but ultimately God’s people, the sheep of His flock will not follow him, because they will not recognise his voice as it is written in scripture. Jesus’s sheep will only recognise the voice of Jesus and it is Jesus we follow.

Now the next important prayer we use a lot in the Rosary is known by the Protestants as the ‘Lord’s Prayer.’ Catholics usually call it the ‘Our Father.’ In the Gospel the Lord’s Prayer is said twice. Catholics say the shorter version. The Protestants will add ‘and Thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen. Catholics don’t say that. Neither are wrong it is just your preference the way you want to say it. Both versions are in the bible.

Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver as from evil. Amen

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen

Note:  We call Mary the mother of God, because at one time in Christian History there were heretics saying that Jesus wasn’t God. Christians all know God is a Trinity, which is Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Three persons but yet one God. It is very hard to explain, but basically God put on human flesh to come down to earth to teach us all how to live and then He died on the cross taking our sins with Him to the cross to save us from hell, if we would only believe and obey Him. So the church tried to stop the heresies by saying Mary was the mother of God in other words Mary was the mother of God the second person, which is Jesus Christ. Their efforts did stopped the heresies from spreading. Now the beginning of the Rosaries we are saying what St. Elizabeth said to Mary in the Gospel when Mary came to visited and help her while she was pregnant with St. John the Baptist. So there is history attached to the prayer of ‘Hail Mary.’

The next important prayer of the Rosary that we use a lot is Glory Be

Glory Be

Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

This Prayer Came later

On my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to heaven, and help especially those most in need of Thy mercy. Amen

Hail Holy Queen, Or Salve Regina

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve, to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us; and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

The Final Prayer

O God whose only begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection has purchase for us the rewards of eternal life, grant we beseech thee, that meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen

Now the next step is, while we are saying the Hail Mary Prayers we are supposed to let our minds meditate on the mysteries of our Redemptions. I will write down the different mysteries in their order. For the moment we are just getting all the prayers before you that you will need to know, to say the Rosary. In the next article we will have a much better idea how to use all this information.

The Joyful Mystery

The first Joyful Mystery is The Annunciation

The second Joyful Mystery is The Visitation

The third Joyful Mystery is The Nativity

The fourth Joyful Mystery is The Presentation   –   (When Jesus was circumcised)

The fifth Joy Mystery is The Finding of Jesus in The Temple

The Sorrowful Mystery

The first Sorrowful Mystery is The Agony in the Garden

The second Sorrowful Mystery is The Scourging at the Pillar

The third Sorrowful Mystery is the crowning with Thorns

The fourth Sorrowful Mystery is The Carrying of the Cross

The fifth Sorrowful Mystery is The Crucifixion

The Glorious Mystery

The first Glorious Mystery the Resurrection

The second Glorious Mystery the Ascension

The third Glorious Mystery the Descent of the Holy Spirit

The fourth Glorious Mystery the Assumption

The fifth Glorious Mystery the Coronation

Note: I remember reading a book about Mary’s life by a visionary who was given the supernatural gift of seeing Mary’s life and she was shown; Mary had the opportunity not to die, because of how pleasing her life was to God. Even though she was given this opportunity she chose to die, because she wanted to resemble her Son as much as possible. The fourth Glorious Mystery the Assumption is saying she didn’t die, she just went straight to heaven. And yet at the same time there is a feast day where we celebrate Mary’s death. So there is a contradiction here. When I meditate on the fourth Glorious Mystery I just meditate on the joy everybody in heaven receiving her as she enters in heaven with her Son.

No Good Tree Bears Bad Fruit

isVJF7ODZB Luke: 6:43-45   “No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of – I was thinking more about why many people including the Protestants seem to believe all the apparitions of Mary as being false and many seem to believe it is from the devil. It is true for sure we have to test out every spirit and that is what the Vatican does constantly. There was a saying in the Catholic Church ‘the quickest way to get persecuted by the Catholic Church is to say that you had a vision.’ You only have to look back at history to see how true this saying is.

Jesus Rocked the Boat

Most saints were given an extremely hard time while they were alive, because the church would not believe them. When the saints were safely buried and out of harm’s way, the church often canonised them. Saints are like Jesus they often rock the boat. People don’t like to be told they are wrong for one thing. They don’t like their spirituality to be upgraded. They want to stay in their comfort zone. If we are to follow Jesus we can’t do that. If we want to stay comfortable, we are going to find that we are on the road to hell not heaven. To follow Jesus you are always climbing to higher places of righteousness. Climbing higher and higher up God’s Mountain is never easy nor comfortable.

1 Corinthians 13:7-8. (Love) always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails – What is the fruit of a believer in Jesus? Love!! Love of God and love of neighbour. Love is not always sweet and mushy. True love will speak out and even correct you if necessary. Because love doesn’t want you to waste your life and it is always wanting the best for you. Love is not weak. Love can be cruel to be kind even. People these days hate discipline more than any other generation in history before it, far as I am concern. The fruit of a true disciple of Jesus is explained to me well in 1 John4:7. Let us love another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.

Look Closely At the Apparitions of Mary

All these apparitions of Mary if you look closely and honestly you will see the fruit that has been offering to us by her, it is always for us to grow with love of God and our neighbour. If the apparitions were of the devil he would do the very opposite. He would teach us it is OK to be lazy spiritually, so that you will not advance in the Kingdom of God. Mary doesn’t teach laziness, she is telling us to pull up our socks. She is saying pray harder, obey the commandments of God like never before, because your soul and our world depends on it. She approaches everybody with love, she doesn’t encourage vanity or snobbery but humility and love in all her seers. She doesn’t draw people to worship her regardless of what people say, her attention is always bringing us closer to God through her Son Jesus. That is not what the devil would do.

Testing Out the Spirits

If it is the devil all the seers would be proud and educating everybody to take the easy and broad road to hell. Mary teachers us to follow Jesus by the narrow and straight road that only a few find and are willing to travel, because it is a hard and difficult road. Mary doesn’t teach to follow Jesus is going to be easy, she is teaching us not to get too comfortable here on earth as if this is our eternal home. Many people including Christians do live on earth as if we are not going to leave it. How dangerous. All the disciples with the exception of John were martyred to death, because they taught what the religious of the day did not like. What they taught was truth and it didn’t flatter their egos. Satan and all his followers’ uses flattery to get you to do what they want you to do. And so many people fall for it.

We All Need Help

God and His Children including the Mother of Jesus, speaks on the true path to enter the Kingdom of heaven, because they are sincere in wanting you to arrive in God’s Kingdom. People who follow the devil will say what you what to hear, so that they then can win your trust to get you to do what they want you to do and it is always to rob you of your inheritance that God is offering you.  The journey to heaven is not a push over. There are many trials to overcome and we all need to know how to handle these trials. Not one of us can do it on our own. That is why I love and preach the importance of practising the communion of saints so much. We all can do with extra help from the saints who have made it to heaven, they know the way. After all they have arrived!!! When you ask them to help you, they do according to your faith. The more you believe they will intercede on your behalf, the more spectacular the prayer gets answered. Saints are very kind people, because they are in the image of God. They no longer suffer imperfections like we do. They love you more than you love yourself. All of the inhabitants of heaven does. They all do the will of God in heaven, not like earth.

Why Catholics are Taught to Bless Mary

isVJF7ODZBI know a great many Protestants insist that all Catholics worship Mary. Unfortunately some do, but that is not part of the Catholic teaching. You are going astray if you worship Mary. Devout Catholics have a very intimate relationship with Mary. And that can be mistaken as worship. Why does Mary more likely appear to a Catholic than a Protestant. To be truthful Protestant are very nervous of having a relationship with Mary. They are basically been taught that is worship. And that is like a closed door, they will not let Mary enter in their lives. Some may be attracted to her from afar, but they won’t get close to her and so miss out on all that she has as the Mother of Our Lord has to offer them.

Why Ask Mary to Pray on Your Behalf

You might ask what Mary has got to offer you. You will be surprised, the more you honour her the closer she brings you to her Son. Some prayers believe it or not won’t get answered without Mary’s help. She speeds the answer to your prayers quicker than you can realise. Not only is she the Mother of Jesus Christ, she was the greatest Martyr other than Jesus Himself, who is our Saviour. The thing is we are called to be semi-saviours. Jesus has paid the whole price of our redemption, but not everybody has accepted it. So God calls us all to make sacrifices for souls who are lost to Him. This happens only if we unite our suffering with Jesus. It stands to reason we can suffer all we like and not be able to save ourselves never alone somebody else. If you offer yourself up as a victim for God, God quickly accepts it, I know because I did a couple of times and He never says no to that one. Because He is starving for His lost children. He wants them so badly. To help out is costly, but that too brings you much closer to Our Saviour. The more we help out, the greater our faith and love grows for God. So what I am saying, nobody is Marys equal; she has suffered more; love more and has the strongest faith in Jesus than anybody else.

We Call Mary Our Mother

Jesus has given her to us so that we can call her our Mother. It is His gift to us. She is more your mother than your earthly mother. Like Jesus would tell you she suffered more, to give birth to you than your earthly mother did. She has paid a higher price over you. And she loves you far more than your earthly mother does. Mary’s power to help, is God given. She has no power of her own, but because she was faithful in life she now rules in heaven as the Queen of Heaven and Earth. There is a lot of arguments about that. While people argue; Catholics are receiving visions of Mary as Mother and as the Queen of Heaven and Earth, all throughout Christian History. Miracles are happening by turning to her in prayer asking her to intercede on our behalf.

I Was Slow to Accept Mary as Mother

I had a problem accepting Mary as my mother well after becoming a Catholic. I have a favourite book called ‘He and i’ and every time I turn to that book to read, it keep falling on pages that Jesus would say repeatedly ask My Mother. Over and over again, until I got fed up and so I said “All right!” I have been praying this certain prayer for years and years when I asked Mary  I got a ‘yes’ straight away. She spoke to me and she was closer to me than I was to myself. So close that it scared me and she spoke so loudly and her voice was crystal clear and very beautiful. Many and many people will give testimony to Mary’s response to prayer.

Luke 1:48. For he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant, from now on all generations will call me blessed.

is2C12MD3ZAll the old churches that claim to be started by a disciple do bless Mary and honour her, it is just the Protestant that think it is a form of worship.

Consecration to Jesus and Mary

My favourite prayer book has a prayer that I am just started saying. It is a prayer of consecration to Jesus Christ, The incarnate wisdom, through the Blessed Virgin Mary. I have had this book for about forty years. I kept away from this prayer, because you are offering yourself to Jesus and Mary as their slave. I didn’t have any problems calling myself a servant but I had great problems humbling myself an acknowledging that I am a slave first. God raises the humble. If you want to be great in Heaven than you have to consider yourself the least. So I am just starting to be comfortable with the word slave. Since I have been saying it I am getting even closer to Mary. I feel she is helping me even more.

One paragraph I really like goes like this; O admirable Mother, present me to thy dear Son as His eternal slave, so that as He has redeemed me by thee, by thee He may receive me! O Mother of mercy, grant me the grace to obtain the true Wisdom of God; and for that end receive among those whom thou lovest and teachest, or whom thou leadest, nourishes and protectest as thy children and thy slaves.

When we say things like grant us grace or wisdom or whatever we are saying pray for us so that we may receive these things. We are not saying she has the ability by herself to provide for us. We believe she has great influence on her Son. Jesus finds her irresistible, He can’t resist her request. Jesus has said this to many visionaries.

Hail Mary

isPLLWHJ3SI had an extract from a book called “The Flame of Love” many years ago, more like some few decades ago.  And I always wanted the book but never had the opportunity to get one, and then one day I thought I wonder if I can get it through the internet and sure enough they on facebook. And you can buy the book. The full title of the book is called “The Flame of Love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.” By Elizabeth Kindelmann. I am so glad I have it. Elizabeth Kindelmann received many visitations of Mary and Our Lord and it is full of lesson how to advance in your spiritual life. Mary I see has been asking us to say the Hail Mary differently and it goes like this:

Hail Mary Full of Grace, the Lord is with Thee, blessed are Thou among Women, and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners, spread the effort of grace of Thy Flame of Love over all humanity now and at the hour of our death. Amen

There is also a Flame of Love rosary she wants us to say:

Sign yourself five times with the cross in honour of Jesus five wounds then you say on the large bead.

Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us who seek refuge in you!

Then on the small beads you say

Holy Mother save us through Your Immaculate Heart’s Flame of Love!

Then you say this prayer three times

Glory be the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be world without end. Amen.

Then you finish it off by crosses yourself five times in honour of Jesus wounds again.
