Do you see how so many of my children no longer speak the language of their Creator?

Nehemiah 13:23-24 In those days also I saw Jews who had married women of Ashdod, Ammon, and Moab; and half of their children spoke the language of Ashdod, and they could not speak the language of Judah, but spoke the language of various peoples.

“My child, do you see how so many of my children no longer speak the language of their Creator? They have mingled with the enemy and have fallen for his lies. They do not even know enough to grieve over what they have lost. But I grieve. Each one is as dear to me as an only child. I mean to call each one back, to teach them once again the language of eternal love, to tune their ears to my voice, to have them yearn for me as I yearn for them. My people—pray! Without prayer to soften the soil of their hearts, they will not return to me. Do not let anyone be lost for lack of prayer. In the Divine Will expand your territory. Wherever you are, ask me to include those around you in your territory of souls. Place them in the Flame of Love. So many great graces are available to you. You have no idea how much you can accomplish by co-operating with grace. Delay no longer! Find ways to pray better. Find ways to offer your every moment to me for the sake of souls. If you understood the importance of this, you would stop at nothing. Sanctify your daily duty by offering it to me. O my children, the time is very short indeed! Give me souls!”

Beloved Father of my heart, I offer you anew, in the Divine Will, my every thought, word, and deed, my every breath, heartbeat, and movement. Any which are unworthy to be offered, I re-do in the Divine Will to make them perfect. I offer all to you through the Flame of Love in the name of everyone from Adam to the last man, for the salvation of a great many souls, especially all those in my spiritual territory, so that your kingdom my come and come quickly! Maranatha! Come Lord Jesus! Save souls! Amen.

All that they enemy has planned will be used against him…

Psalm 20:5 May we shout for joy over your victory, and in the name of our God set up our banners.

“Beloved, do not be discouraged. Do you not know that your God has the victory in all things? But more than this, all that they enemy has planned will be used against him. His humiliation will be complete. Therefore, endure bravely whatever comes. Know and believe that all things work for good for those who love God and who are called according to his purpose. (cf Rom 8:28) Whatever you endure with faith, hope, and love, is a great victory, no matter how it looks on the outside. This is how the holy martyrs were able to find joy even in the most severe trial. This is how our Mother endured the shame and agony of watching her holy Son die so painful and ignominious a death. Place all your faith, hope, and trust in me. I am the only one who can satisfy the longings of the human heart. It is time. Let the glory of the Lord shine forth!”

Jesus I trust in you. May your glory be revealed to all people and nations. In your mercy, strengthen our faith, hope, and trust, so that we might be instruments for your glory. May your kingdom come, and come quickly! Amen.

Regarding Charlie…

Blessings all. As most of you know I have been a reader of Charlie Johnston’s blog for a few years now, and perhaps some of you came to know about him through me. This past week, Charlie bowed out of the prophetic spotlight. Here is a quote from his latest post:

“By my own standard, I was wrong about the peaceful transfer of power in the U.S. yesterday. My favorite note came from a friend who said, “You got close on it, but this isn’t horseshoes.” That encapsulated my own thoughts quite nicely. I rarely speak of specific events. Having done so, it was my duty to get it right.

“Some have demanded an explanation from me. I was wrong. I could be a crackpot, but that seems unlikely, given that I so accurately described the sudden cultural and spiritual degeneration of our society. I was deceived on this – and God allowed the deception to persist without correction. I have been deceived before – and counted on my angel to correct me on those occasions. This time the deception was allowed to persist, either to chasten me or for other reasons yet unknown.”

Though painful, I thought it was a gracious exit, and an honest one. It reminded me in a way of the experience of Jonah, whom God sent to proclaim death and destruction to Nineveh if they did not repent. They did repent, and the death and destruction did not happen. Jonah was angry to the point of wanting to die. He felt utterly humiliated. God explained that it was his love for the people of Nineveh and even the animals, that made him relent after they repented.

My point is that we don’t see the big picture. We don’t readily see it from God’s perspective. The prophetic gift is very much alive in our age, but it is like a gigantic puzzle where the pieces keep moving and changing. In any case, we leave the final approval or disapproval to the Church and in the meantime do our best to discern.

What I always liked about Charlie was his focus on the basic, core message of his mission, that for the duration of the “storm” that is certainly upon us, we should do our best to remain grounded: “Acknowledge God, take the next right step, and be a sign of hope for others.” A message so simple it could have come from the Little Flower herself. What kept me coming back was his reluctance to focus on the prophetic, his simple, honest core message, his forthrightness, his determination to take responsibility for all he said and did, his sincere desire to be faithful to his call, and above all his faithfulness to Holy Mother Church. Prophecies and timelines aside, there was down-home wisdom in his blog posts. That, even more than the prophecies, gave me great hope, and that is a very sweet fruit indeed.

Since Friday’s painful lesson, something I have wondered is this: In Charlie’s failure, is God highlighting for us his desire that we rely solely on Him? Have we put too much emphasis on visionaries, prophets, and prophecies to the extent that it leads us away from dependence on God, and wastes precious time? What is the lesson for you and me? That is certainly worth pondering. Sunday’s Gospel reading from 1 Corinthians was very apt I thought: “What I mean is that each of you says, ‘I belong to Paul’, or ‘I belong to Apollos’, or ‘I belong to Cephas’, or ‘I belong to Christ.’ Has Christ been divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?” Whether or not any modern-day prophecies are fulfilled, we always have Christ and if we have Christ, we have everything.

Now, one prophecy I still hope will be fulfilled, for all our sakes, is of the miraculous “Rescue” Charlie said would come near the end of 2017. I can only say, may our merciful God grant it! I have prayed and continue to pray that this will come about sooner rather than later, that our merciful Lord will put an end to this evil age–as God wills of course. There have been many similar prophecies (minus the specific timeline, although signs are given) from approved apparitions under titles such as “The Triumph of the Immaculate Heart,” “The Kingdom of the Divine Will,” “The Eucharistic Reign of Christ,” “The Era of Peace,” etc.—many different titles speaking of the same glorious future. I, and probably most of you, have been praying fervently that this would happen very soon, and even that it will coincide with the 100th anniversary of Fatima. In the Divine Will, I long with God’s longing for the day when we shall be his people and he will be our God*. I am not banking on it, however, placing all my trust in God’s perfect timing, so that the most souls can be saved. If it does not happen, or if it takes longer than I hope, I will continue to acknowledge God, take the next right step, and be a sign of hope for others. For that simple grace I owe a debt of gratitude to Charlie, whom God used as his instrument to bestow it.

Charlie also said this in his last blog post (my emphasis):

“I had said that the failure of a peaceful (election) transition would be a sign to you that I had told you true about the Rescue. Now you have to rely less on my word and more on the fidelity of God throughout the ages, the God who has rescued His people countless times and who has always been near at hand to those who call on Him in humility and trust. For whatever sting there is for me, that is not a bad result.”

What is left for us and what has always been our duty, is to continue to pray and offer sacrifices for souls, to pray for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart, to pray for the grace to endure whatever God allows with humility and fidelity.

Jesus I trust in YOU. Save souls!

(*This phrase occurs a number of times in Scripture, a testament to God’s longing. Here are 11 of them: Gen 17:8; Ez 11:20, 14:11, 37:23, 37:27; Zech 8:8; Jer 24:7, 31:33, 32:38; Heb 8:10; 2 Cor 6:16)

Two dreams…

I had this dream recently, just before waking:

Christians were being rounded up. Someone came and told me to get in line. We were told to walk in single file with our hand on the shoulder of the one ahead of us. I didn’t know any of the others in line, but somehow I knew that the young woman ahead of the young man in front of me was not Catholic. She seemed very excited and was telling the young man about a big change that was coming. He said, “You mean I’m going to change?” She replied, “Everyone’s going to change.” I thought, that sounds like the illumination. She seemed to think it would happen very soon. We came to the place where they wanted us and broke ranks. She said that anyone who wanted to teach others about this, to come with her. I was thrilled at the prospect and followed her with great anticipation that this long-awaited event might be imminent.

I share this dream with the caveat that dreams are subject to interpretation, and timelines are not to be taken literally. Is the rounding up of Christians a sign? Possibly, but let us not become too caught up in signs, except the sign of Isaiah 7:14. I have learned to interpret dreams as calls to prayer, so I want to encourage us all to step up our prayers for souls, especially those who will die suddenly, but also for those who will experience the painful experience of the illumination of their soul, either in a worldwide event, or at the moment of their death, as in that avalanche in Italy. The enemy never sleeps and wants to discourage all souls from believing in the infinite mercy of God.

Most effective are the Flame of Love prayers, which “blind satan”. Of course, praying in the Divine Will not only gives infinite power to our prayers, but it also keeps us from praying in our own will. Let us beg the Holy Spirit to take our prayer to a much higher level than we could ever manage on our own.

A couple of days later, again just before waking, I had another dream, very brief. Some demons were in prison and were anticipating their imminent release. I feel this is a call not to become complacent with our prayers, but to increase our prayers and sacrifices wherever possible, even offering our every moment in the Divine Will, so that every moment becomes a prayer. When I awoke I prayed the Flame of Love prayers in the Divine Will and felt the strength of those prayers. I often pray this prayer repeatedly during the day or if I’m awake in the night: “Holy Mary, Mother of God, spread the effect of grace of Thy Flame of Love over all of humanity, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.” (Sometimes if it seems appropriate I add a name: “…over ___ and over all of humanity…”)

If you are not praying the Flame of Love prayers, you are missing a singular grace. Please read my blog post from 2014 here: https://pelianitoblog.wordpress.com/flame-of-love/, or go to Anthony Mullen’s site: http://www.flameoflove.us/ .

Friday’s Mass reading offered great hope: Hebrews 8:10-13 This is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws in their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall not teach one another or say to each other, “Know the Lord”, for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest. For I will be merciful towards their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.’

Oh Jesus! May your kingdom come and come quickly! May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven! Amen.

 

Jesus I trust in you…

Blessings to all. What days we are in! I am currently reading a book on Joan of Arc by Mark Twain (re-released by Lighthouse Catholic Media and available for $6.00). Mark Twain considered it his best book, and it is of course masterfully written, based on 12 years of research on the many official documents on her life and martyrdom. In her story we find a stellar model of abject trust, the graces that flow from that trust, and the desire of God to work through humble, willing souls–especially in the most desperate of times.

Today I am re-posting a message on trust from 2010. It seems more relevant today than ever. Someone brought that post my attention today, and it tied in so well with the book on St. Joan that I felt sure God wanted me to re-post this message, and bring the book to your attention.

The original post:

My dear friends,

Recently I felt Our Lady giving me a message that at first seemed personal to me, but on reflection, I see that this Word is meant for all: “You, my child, have been given a …

Those who at least try to please me, no matter how paltry the effort, are a balm to my much-wounded heart…

Psalm 12:1-2 Help, O Lord, for there is no longer anyone who is godly; the faithful have disappeared from humankind. They utter lies to each other; with flattering lips and a double heart they speak.

“Beloved, does not the God who sees into the secret recesses of the human heart know this? How I long to look with joy at my children, but instead what I see disgusts me. Yet those who at least try to please me, no matter how paltry the effort, are a balm to my much-wounded heart. Try always to please me, my children. Try always to give me the comfort of your small efforts and your desire to please me. If you do this, you will invoke my mercy over the whole world. Do so in the Divine Will and you will see miracles of grace and conversion. Give me everything! Give me your heart! There I will take my rest.”

O my beloved Father, in the Divine Will, I give you my heart, wrapped in the swaddling bands of Jesus and smelling of the sweet perfume of the perfect love of Mary and Joseph for Jesus.

“Child, this is a gift most pleasing to me!”

Then, Father, I offer it in the Divine Will in the name of everyone from Adam to the last man, in reparation to your much-wounded heart. Abba, Father, I love you! Amen.

Pray for mercy for those who will perish without having prepared their souls…

I was reading through the dreams category of my blog and came across this dream from 2010 that is also on the theme of praying for those who will die suddenly.

pelianitoblog

Dream: Last night I dreamed about a strange cloud of fire and ash that was coming towards us from the south. We locked the windows and when it hit, there was ash piled to within a foot of the top of the windows on that side of the house. There was a smell of smoke even in the house with the windows closed . This is the second time I have dreamed about large dumps of ash. Lord Jesus have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Habakkuk 3:9 Bared and ready is your bow, filled with arrows is your quiver. Into streams you split the earth; 10 at sight of you the mountains tremble. A torrent of rain descends; the ocean gives forth its roar.

“My child, pray for mercy for those who will perish without having prepared their souls. There is much that will befall the earth…

The battle for souls…

Happy feast day of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, dear friends!

I have two dreams to relate to you. One I posted in April, 2007. The other is a dream I had in the week before Christmas this year. I feel that both are calls to pray for those who may die suddenly and unprepared. This seems a dire message given that we are celebrating a New Year. But please remember that God would not send me these dreams and this message if there was no hope attached. Do not let this message fill you with dread, but with the firm belief that God will hear your prayers for souls and use your sacrifices to save many who may be lost without them. Death is hard for those left behind, but the real tragedy occurs when souls are lost. Offering prayers for souls is one way that we can be a sure sign of hope for others.

First Dream – April 2007

I was in a car by the seashore. Suddenly the sea started to rise very quickly. Many people were unprepared. I saw that many of the unprepared were famous people. They were trapped by the rising water and drowned. Then a great tsunami rose and rushed towards us. We could not escape it but I felt that we had a better chance of surviving if we stayed in our car, thinking that the car could take the pounding better than we could and we might escape with our lives.

I felt afterwards that this dream was a call to pray for those whose hearts are spiritually unprepared and who are in grave spiritual danger. Our “vehicle of safety” is the Church. It will be battered by upcoming events, but we are far safer within it than we would be outside of it.

Second Dream – December 2016

I was looking out over the harbor and saw a large cruise ship being towed into port by a tug. I thought, “That’s unusual. We don’t usually get cruise ships here.” After it docked I went to see it. There was absolutely no sign of life on it or around it. After waking I felt the ship represented death.

I believe these dreams may be related and that the events of the first (the death of many famous people) may be a sign for the timing of the second. We have just come off a year where an unprecedented number of famous people have died, probably many of them unprepared. In Canada we are also in mourning for all those who have taken their own lives through physician-assisted suicide. Ever since I had the first dream, I have been praying for those who will die unprepared. I believe the second dream is in turn an encouragement to pray even harder for those poor souls. I encourage all of us to do so. Here is the prayer I pray daily at the end of my Divine Mercy chaplet:

“Merciful Jesus, lover of souls, we beseech you by the agony of your most Sacred Heart and by the sorrows of your Immaculate Mother, to wash clean in your blood the sinners of the whole world who are now in their final agony, but especially those on their way to eternal damnation and who are to die this day. Heart of Jesus, who suffered death’s agony, have mercy on these poor souls. Amen.”

We are a people of hope and our God of hope has given us powerful weapons against the culture of death, one of the greatest of which is the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. We know we can trust Jesus and believe in the promise he made to St. Faustina:

“At the hour of their death, I defend as My own glory every soul that will say this chaplet; or when others say it for a dying person, the indulgence is the same.” (Diary, 811)

“My daughter, encourage souls to say the chaplet which I have given to you. It pleases Me to grant everything they ask of Me by saying the chaplet. … Write that when they say this chaplet in the presence of the dying, I will stand between My Father and the dying person, not as the just Judge but as the merciful Savior.” (Diary, 1541).

God’s mercy is unimaginable! Even more so in that he uses weak sinners as his instruments of mercy on earth. Just as St. Faustina was often taken in spirit to the side of dying souls so she could pray the chaplet in their presence, in the Divine Will we can ask for the same grace, for nothing is impossible for God. “Jesus, in the Divine Will, take me into the presence of those in most dire need of your mercy as I pray this chaplet…”

God is calling us to participate in his ministry of salvation. May our Blessed Mother guide us and help us in the battle for the souls of her beloved children.

O my Jesus, I love you, I trust you, I surrender myself to you. Please take care of everything and everyone in my spiritual territory. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I love you. Save souls!

The hope and joy that filled the cave at Bethlehem is magnified in this age…

Blessed Christmas dear friends. I am reblogging a post from December 25, 2011. May the Infant King and his holy parents enfold you and yours in their merciful hearts. May His kingdom come and come quickly!

Isaiah 9:1 The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who lived in a land of deep darkness—on them light has shone.

“Behold, the Light has come into the world. A land steeped in darkness is filled with promise. The hope and joy that filled the cave at Bethlehem is magnified in this age—for where sin abounds, grace abounds all the more. The darker the night, the more brilliant the light appears. Oh my children! Oh that today you would listen to my voice! Then I would speak gentle words of love and hope to soothe your battered hearts. Oh my children, how I long to draw you into the manger with me. In your pride you will not seek me in so low a place. And yet that is where I desire to be found. Do not hesitate to go to the lowest places, for…
