LET'S "LIVE FASTING"




Jesus said to Saint Faustina, "The lukewarm and indifferent souls cause Me more suffering than any others; it was from such souls that My soul felt the most revulsion in the Garden of Olives. It was on their account that I said: 'My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass Me by.' The last hope of salvation for them is to flee to My Mercy." Divine Mercy Novena

I am so afraid that I will talk too much, write too much, and fast and pray too little. Our Lady keeps telling us everywhere she appears that we need to turn away from the allurements of the world, change ourselves, then get busy with helping her Son to save souls. On March 25, 2006 Our Lady of Medjugorje gave this message to Marija,  "Dear children! I desire to thank you from my heart for your Lenten renunciations. I desire to inspire you to continue to live fasting with an open heart. By fasting and renunciation, little children, you will be stronger in faith. In God you will find true peace through daily prayer. I am with you and I am not tired. I desire to take you all with me to Heaven, therefore, decide daily for holiness. Thank you for having responded to my call." Messages and Teachings of Mary at Medjugorje

SAINT JOHN THE EVANGELIST KNEW SOMETHING!



St. John the Evangelist,
wrote the Apocalypse of the Bible.
(painting by Maria Schutz.
Heiligenbild 2009)





Brother Michel de la Sainte Trinite wrote in his work on the Secrets of Fatima that when he interviewed Sister Lucy of Fatima in person and he hinted for answers from her about the future, Sister Lucy exclaimed that what we want to know is in the Bible. To quote Brother Michel's book: "Sister Lucy herself greatly recommends reading, studying, meditating on the Apocalypse. We have seen that when questioned on the contents of the third Secret [of Fatima], she answered: It’s in the Gospel and the Apocalypse, read them! We even know that one day she indicated chapters 8 to 13 ." [The Whole Truth About Fatima, Volume III, The Third Secret (1942-1960), by Brother Michel de la Sainte Trinite of the Little Brothers of the Sacred Heart.]
SISTER LUCY OF FATIMA KNEW SOMETHING

Jacinta, Lucy, and Francisco of Fatima

My feeling is that the "Secrets" promised at MEDJUGORJE are also in the APOCALYPSE somewhere. Would the SEVEN ANGELS be going to deliver the necessary chastisements? If we take the words of Saint John literally, it is going to sound very familiar. 
APOCALYPSE: CHAPTER 8

The seventh seal is opened. The angels with the seven trumpets.

[1] And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven, as it were for half an hour. [2] And I saw SEVEN ANGELS standing in the presence of God; and there were given to them seven trumpets. [3] And another angel came, and stood before the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given to him much incense, that he should offer of the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar, which is before the throne of God. [4] And the smoke of the incense of the prayers of the saints ascended up before God from the hand of the angel. 
[5] And the angel took the censer, and filled it with the fire of the altar, and cast it on the earth, and there were thunders and voices and lightnings, and a great earthquake.
[6] And the seven angels, who had the seven trumpets, prepared themselves to sound the trumpet. 
[7] And the FIRST ANGEL sounded the trumpet, and there followed hail and fire, mingled with blood, and it was cast on the earth, and the third part of the earth was burnt up, and the third part of the trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
[8] And the SECOND ANGEL sounded the trumpet: and as it were a great mountain, burning with fire, was cast into the sea, and the third part of the sea became blood: [9] And the third part of those creatures died, which had life in the sea, and the third part of the ships was destroyed.  
[10] And the THIRD ANGEL sounded the trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, burning as it were a torch, and it fell on the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters: [11] And the name of the star is called Wormwood. And the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. 
[12] And the FOURTH ANGEL sounded the trumpet, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars, so that the third part of them was darkened, and the day did not shine for a third part of it, and the night in like manner. 
 [13] And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth: by reason of the rest of the voices of the three angels, who are yet to sound the trumpet.

APOCALYPSE CHAPTER 9

Locusts come forth from the bottomless pit. The vision of the army of horsemen.


[1] And the FIFTH ANGEL sounded the trumpet, and I saw a star fall from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit. [2] And he opened the bottomless pit: and the smoke of the pit arose, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke of the pit. [3] And from the smoke of the pit there came out locusts upon the earth. And power was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have power: [4] And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree: but only the men who have not the sign of God on their foreheads. [5] And it was given unto them that they should not kill them; but that they should torment them five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion when he striketh a man. [6] And in those days men shall seek death, and shall not find it: and they shall desire to die, and death shall fly from them. [7] And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle: and on their heads were, as it were, crowns like gold: and their faces were as the faces of men. [8] And they had hair as the hair of women; and their teeth were as lions: [9] And they had breastplates as breastplates of iron, and the noise of their wings was as the noise of chariots and many horses running to battle. [10] And they had tails like to scorpions, and there were stings in their tails; and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had over them. [11] A king, the angel of the bottomless pit; whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek Apollyon; in Latin Exterminans, [12] One woe is past, and behold there come yet two woes more hereafter.

[13] And the SIXTH ANGEL sounded the trumpet: and I heard a voice from the four horns of the great altar, which is before the eyes of God, [14] Saying to the sixth angel, who had the trumpet: Loose the four angels, who are bound in the great river Euphrates. [15] And the four angels were loosed, who were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year: for to kill the third part of men. [16] And the number of the army of horsemen was twenty thousand times ten thousand. And I heard the number of them. [17] And thus I saw the horses in the vision: and they that sat on them, had breastplates of fire and of hyacinth and of brimstone, and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions: and from their mouths proceeded fire, and smoke, and brimstone. [18] And by these three plagues was slain the third part of men, by the fire and by the smoke and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. [19] For the power of the horses is in their mouths, and in their tails. For, their tails are like to serpents, and have heads: and with them they hurt. [20] And the rest of the men, who were not slain by these plagues, did not do penance from the works of their hands, that they should not adore devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and wood, which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: [21] Neither did they penance from their murders, nor from their sorceries, nor from their fornication, nor from their thefts.


APOCALYPSE CHAPTER 10

The cry of a mighty angel. He gives John a book to eat.


[1] And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud, and a rainbow was on his head, and his face was as the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire. [2] And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot upon the earth. [3] And he cried with a loud voice as when a lion roareth. And when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. [4] And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying to me: Seal up the things which the seven thunders have spoken; and write them not. [5] And the angel, whom I saw standing upon the sea and upon the earth, lifted up his hand to heaven, [6] And he swore by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things which are therein; and the earth, and the things which are in it; and the sea, and the things which are therein: That time shall be no longer. [7] But in the days of the voice of the SEVENTH ANGEL, when he shall begin to sound the trumpet, the mystery of God shall be finished, as he hath declared by his servants the prophets [8] And I heard a voice from heaven again speaking to me, and saying: Go, and take the book that is open, from the hand of the angel who standeth upon the sea, and upon the earth. [9] And I went to the angel, saying unto him, that he should give me the book. And he said to me: Take the book, and eat it up: and it shall make thy belly bitter, but in thy mouth it shall be sweet as honey. [10] And I took the book from the hand of the angel, and ate it up: and it was in my mouth, sweet as honey: and when I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. [11] And he said to me: Thou must prophesy again to many nations, and peoples, and tongues, and kings.

APOCALYPSE CHAPTER 15



And the SEVENTH ANGEL sounded the trumpet: and there were great voices in heaven, saying: The kingdom of this world is become our Lord's and his Christ's, and he shall reign for ever and ever. Amen.


APOCALYPSE CHAPTER 16

And the SEVENTH ANGEL poured out his vial upon the air, and there came a great voice out of the temple from the throne, saying: It is done.

OUR LADY OF AMERICA HAS AN ASSIGNMENT
FOR THE UNITED STATES


"It is the United States that is to lead the world to peace ......"

Read about the statue's history and Our Ladys requests at

A statue of Our Lady of America is waiting in the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center in Washington D.C. She requested to be processed into the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception more than 50 years ago, and promised many miracles if this is accomplished. 
As published on JKMI Our Lady of America  "On November 15, 1956, Our Lady asked Sister to draw a picture of her first appearance and requested that a statue be made according to this likeness and that it be placed in the Shrine after being solemnly carried in procession. She wishes to be honored there in a special way as 'Our Lady of America, the Immaculate Virgin'.  Our Lady promised that the placement of her statue in the National Shrine would be a safeguard for our country, and the placement of her image or statue in the home would be security for the family.
"I am Our Lady of America. I desire that my children honor me, especially by the purity of their lives."  were the first words spoken by Our Lady of America, September 26, 1956 to Sister Mary Ephrem (Mildred Neuzil).
"On November 22, 1980, Our Lady told Sister Mildred: 
'Beloved daughter, the United States is a small one among nations, yet has it not been said that ‘a little child shall lead them’? It is the United States that is to lead the world to peace, the peace of Christ, the peace that He brought with Him from heaven in His birth as man in the little town of Bethlehem. Dear child, unless the United States accepts and carries out faithfully the mandate given to it by heaven to lead the world to peace, there will come upon it and all nations a great havoc of war and incredible suffering. If, however, the United States is faithful to this mandate from heaven and yet fails in the pursuit of peace because the rest of the world will not accept or co-operate, then the United States will not be burdened with the punishment about to fall.'
"Today, with wars, international terrorism, nuclear threats and natural disasters, Our Lady of America’s messages for purity, peace and prayer are more urgent than ever."  JKMI Our Lady of America
"The United States Catholic Bishops await the outcome of a process of discernment undertaken by His Excellency, Leonard P. Blar of Toledo-in-America, the Diocese where Sr. Mary Ephrem (Mildred Neuzil) lived out her last days on this earth. Our Lady of America appeared to Sr. Mary Ephrem on September 26, 1956 in the Our Lady Mother of Mercy Chapel at what is now Sylvan Springs in Rome City, IN (not far from Toledo, Ohio).   Our Lady the Immaculate Virgin
A downloadable copy of  Messages given to Sister Mary Ephrem (Mildred Neuzil) can be obtained from Our Lady of America .   Printed copies of the following prayer may also be obtained: Written at the behest of Our Lady, October 5, 1956 by Sister Mary Ephrem:
PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF AMERICA,
PATRONESS OF OUR LAND
"Oh Immaculate Mother, Queen of our country, open our hearts, our homes, and our land to the coming of Jesus, your Divine Son. With Him, reign over us, O heavenly Lady, so pure and so bright with the radiance of Gods light shining in and about you. Be our leader against the powers of evil set upon wresting the world of souls, redeemed at such a great cost by the sufferings of your Son and of yourself, in union with Him, from that same Savior, Who loves us with infinite charity.
"We gather about you, O chaste and holy Mother, Virgin Immaculate, Patroness of our beloved Land, determined to fight under your banner of holy purity against the wickedness that would make all the world an abyss of evil, without God and without your loving maternal care. We consecrate our hearts, our homes, our Land to your Most Pure Heart, O great Queen, that the kingdom of your Son, our Redeemer and our God, may be firmly established in us.
"We ask no special sign of you, sweet Mother, for we believe in your great love for us, and we place in you our entire confidence. We promise to honor you by faith, love, and the purity of our lives according to your desire.
"Reign over us, then, O Virgin Immaculate, with your Son Jesus Christ. May His Divine Heart and your most chaste Heart be ever enthroned and glorified among us. Use us, your children of America, as your instruments of peace among men and nations.Work your miracles of grace in us, so that we may be a glory to the Blessed Trinity, Who created, redeemed, and sanctifies us.
"May your valiant spouse, St. Joseph, with the holy Angels and Saints, assist you and us in "renewing the face of the earth." Then when our work is over, come, Holy Immaculate Mother, and as our Victorious Queen, lead us to the eternal kingdom, where your Son reigns forever as King. Amen"

a final Crusade against the Arab powers of the
Middle East. Please keep reading ..............

CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS KNEW SOMETHING!

  

First landing of Columbus on the shores of the New World,
at San Salvador W.I., Oct. 12th 1492
( Dióscoro Teófilo Puebla Tolín, 1862) Wikipedia


CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS KNEW SOMETHING!
These words just blurted out of my "mouth" when I was signing off on a post at the Medjugorje Forum.  It didn't make sense with anything I had been thinking or reading or writing, but I just left it there anyway.  It's been on my mind since November.  Yesterday, it occurred to me to try to find out if Christopher Columbus ever offered a prophecy.  I was thinking, "Maybe my 'mouth' knew something." It turns out that it did and he did! 

According to the Wikipedia article, "Book of Prophecies"  The Book of Prophecies (in Spanish, El Libro de las Profecías) is a compilation of apocalyptical religious revelations written by Christopher Columbus towards the end of his life, probably with the assistance of his friend the Carthusian monk Gaspar Gorricio. It was written between September 1501 and March 1502, with additions until about 1505.

Googling on, I soon found The Insider, an informative website that reports the corrosive undercurrents of modern politics, religion, and the social order.  It says,
"Christopher Columbus produced a famous book, The Book of Prophecies, containing over 200 biblical and patristic passages which he compiled, but how many people understand why?


"When Columbus made his case to win support from the Vatican and the Spanish monarchy, at the centre of his manifesto was a millennial prophecy about the destiny of the land that he would discover. A 'New World' was to arise in the West to fight a final Crusade against the Arab powers of the Middle East."
My heart leapt at these words.  My "brief and unexpected inspiration by the Holy Spirit," was truth!  I had an obligation to do more research and share the results with those who discerned the same.  By the end of the day, I had ordered a copy of Columbus's book, translated into English, from my favorite bookstore.  :)  We're going to talk about this more widely, especially in relation to some things revealed by Our Lady of America.  OUR LADY OF AMERICA

Love, Jeanne 

FOR BETTER OR WORSE

 

 
 
To begin with the intention of pointing out the signs of the times and the Catholic prophecies that have been made up to now about them, this is it for better or worse.  To remember Our Lady's words as Our Lady of America, Our Lady of Medjugorje, Our Lady of La Salette, Our Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady at Quito, and more.   Holy Week, 2013. 
 
Love, Jeanne
