Do not cease to pray and offer sacrifice for souls; in this way you will draw many into the lifeboats…

Hebrews 9:27-28 Just as it is appointed that human beings die once, and after this the judgment, so also Christ, offered once to take away the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to take away sin but to bring salvation to those who eagerly await him.

“My child, do you now see why the hour of mercy is drawing to to close?* There is little—very little—time left for my children to accept the free and incalculable gift of salvation. Once the lines are drawn, there will be no turning back. Those who accept the free and incalculable gift of salvation, I will protect from the eternal flame. Those who reject me, choose their own tragic and everlasting fate—the fires of hell. I have given you many graces in the time that is left. Do not cease to pray and offer sacrifice for souls; in this way you will draw many into the lifeboats. O my child! What sadness awaits humanity! But the greater sadness by far is the loss of so many souls. Pray!”

Jesus, merciful and just, give us grace and strength to pray unceasingly for souls. In the Divine Will alone is this possible. Then in the Divine Will, take our every breath and heartbeat and link them to the Cross. Let our every word and deed be a cry of, “Souls!” In your Divine Mercy let the little that we give be magnified in the Immaculate Heart so that many more will accept the priceless gift of salvation when their souls are illuminated. St. Michael we release your protection over all souls. Jesus we trust in you! Amen.

(*I take this to mean it is end of an era. From the time of the first coming of Christ to the second coming is the day of mercy. Before the illumination, we are still in a time when our knowledge of God is based on faith. As Hebrews 1: 1 puts it: “Faith is the realization of what is hoped for and evidence of things not seen.” The illumination of conscience will remove all doubt. When the illumination occurs, people will have undeniable evidence of God and will have to choose once and for all whose side they are on. Those who even then reject Jesus will be like the angels who rejected him with full knowledge–-no second chances. The day of mercy will have come to an end. To reject the love of God with full knowledge is a sin against the Holy Spirit—the only unforgivable sin. As the Catechism puts it in #1854: “There are no limits to the mercy of God, but anyone who deliberately refuses to accept his mercy by repenting, rejects the forgiveness of his sins and the salvation offered by the Holy Spirit. Such hardness of heart can lead to final impenitence and eternal loss.” Jesus we trust in you!)

  1. We ask the Gloriana to interceed with us, that none may be lost…

    Come, Holy Spirit, and renew the face of the earth…

    We ask you, oh Blessed Mother to flood the whole of humanity with the blessings of your Flame of Love…

    Heavenly Father, may thy kingdom come and thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven…

    Jesus, we trust in you…

  2. This is really a sobering message. It reminds me of the one a little while back about a war coming. I’ve been wondering what it means to say the time of mercy is drawing to a close. God is always merciful to us. Perhaps it means that some big event is about to unfold and will happen despite prayers for mercy?

    1. Sr. Lorraine, I take it to mean more like the end of an era. From the time of the first coming of Christ to the second coming is the day of mercy. Before the illumination, we are still in a time when our knowledge of God is based on faith. As Hebrews 1: 1 puts it: “Faith is the realization of what is hoped for and evidence of things not seen.” The illumination of conscience will remove all doubt. When the illumination occurs, people will have undeniable evidence of God and will have to choose once and for all which side they are on. Those who even then reject Jesus will be like the angels who rejected him with full knowledge–no second chances. The day of mercy will have come to an end.

      Does this make sense?

  3. Wow–thank you for this explanation, Peli–it is perfect I’m thinking!

    Come, Lord Jesus, and come quickly. Help us to fill your lifeboats to overflowing with souls, just as you helped the Apostles to fill their boats to overflowing with fish!

  4. I’m thinking that to reject the Divine Light of the Illumination –– a great Grace and “undeniable evidence of God” –– would be to sin against the Holy Spirit. In the Catechism of the Catholic Church we see that “Whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin.” [Mk 3:29, Mt 12:32, Lk 12:10] There are no limits to the mercy of God, but anyone who deliberately refuses to accept His mercy by repenting, rejects the forgiveness of his sins and the salvation offered by the Holy Spirit. [John Paul II, DeV 46] Such hardness of heart can lead to final impenitence and eternal loss.” The faithful will still be able to cling to His Mercy, because God always keeps His promises. For the unrepetentant, Justice. I don’t want to mispeak, but this seems to make sense to me.

  5. Because I know time is extremely short, I am praying for the conversion of the non-Christians I know.

    I have to dialyze at a dialysis unit 3 times a week and I’ve told some of the atheist/agnostic nurses about my mother’s vision of Jesus in 1976, that we’re coming up to the End of Time, and what’s coming soon (the Illumination of Conscience) but I know they don’t believe me, and must think I’m crazy for believing in such stuff.

    I have some spare Divine Mercy prayer cards & other info on hand to give them once the Illumination happens and they are looking for answers.

    But in the meantime I say the Conversion Prayer for them, which Our Lord gave to St Faustina “O Blood and Water which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a Fount of Mercy for us, I trust in you.”

    Jesus promised “Call upon My mercy on behalf of sinners; I desire their salvation. When you say this prayer, with a contrite heart and with faith on behalf of some sinner, I will give him the grace of conversion.”

    1. St. Faustina gives us so much reason to hope! Thank you for reminding us of this, Donna. I pray this prayer three times at the end of the chaplet each day.

      Dear sister, you have so much to offer for souls as you are nailed to the cross with Jesus 3 times per week and suffer the passion the rest of the time. May God give you grace and strength, and may it comfort you to know that our Blessed Mother will always remain at the foot of your cross as she did with Jesus.

  8. Last night driving home from work, it became so clear to me that the Illumination or whatever big event is going to wake people up to God, is an act of Mercy. I had been thinking that giving the world more time, hence more of our prayers and sacrifices, was Mercy. And it is. But looking upon any supernatural, aka super divine act of God, as an act of Mercy, brings greater peace. Because the world cannot keep spinning out of control for much longer.
    On another note, I am “enjoying” a cup of suffering with things breaking down around here. Bills are coming in, and there is no money to pay them.
    I really want to add sacrifices to my prayers………..but the Lord, I do believe, spoke silently in my heart when He said, “offer Me a sacrifice of praise.” So I have been doing that and this leads to great trust in Him.
    Praised be Jesus Christ, now and forever!
