Offer prayers and sacrifices in the Divine Will, and the duration and intensity may yet be lessened…

Hosea 9:2 Threshing-floor and wine vat shall not feed them, and the new wine shall fail them.

“My beloved, see I make all things new. The old ways of sin are passing away. The new ways of righteousness have been conceived and await the hour of birth. The labor will be fierce but do not despair. In due time, joy will make the days of sin a faded memory, a dream that one awakes from and is overjoyed that it is over. Be patient. Pray for strength and KNOW that the labor is finite. Offer prayers and sacrifices in the Divine Will, and the duration and intensity may yet be lessened. Children I am near and I eagerly await our new life together.”

Blessed Trinity of Love, I praise and thank you in the Divine Will in the name of everyone for all you are doing to bring about the kingdom of the Divine Will. In the Divine Will, through the Flame of Love I offer all my prayers and sufferings, as well as every shard of suffering ever endured so that your kingdom may come quickly and that the labor will be of short duration and less intense than we deserve. Jesus, give us strength and hope. We place all our trust in you. Save souls! Amen.

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.

 

Fasting crucifies the earthly passions, and prayer gives you the grace you need to be able to fast…

Matthew 4:3 The tempter came and said to him, ‘If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.’

“My beloved, the tempter knows your weakness and waits for the perfect opportunity to tempt you. He will use your earthly passions against you. That is why you must fast and pray. Fasting crucifies the earthly passions, and prayer gives you the grace you need to be able to fast, and fast well. There is a form of fasting the feeds the pride. This form is abhorrent to me and has the opposite effect than the one fasting had hoped for. Let your fasting be first of all from pride. When you fast, do not consider how well you have done or how poorly, but in all humility give me whatever you can, and do not calculate the merit of it. You will be very surprised at the end of your life at what was credited to you as merit. Be completely detached from all results. Be humble, be faithful, and give everything to me. Children, the tempter has no power over a humble soul, for that soul carries the odor of Jesus and Mary; he cannot come near. Be little and be grateful for all you have been given. All is gift, dear children. Return it all to me and be at peace. Shalom.”

Beloved Father of my heart, I give you glory and praise your name for all your many gifts to this unworthy sinner. Help me to see my own nothingness and to give back to you all you have given to me. O beloved Father, Abba, I love you! Amen.

 

If they do not recognize their own sinfulness, how can they repent?

Matthew 3:5 Then the people of Jerusalem and all Judea were going out to him, and all the region along the Jordan, and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.

“Oh my beloved, how I long for the day when my children will enter into the ocean of my mercy with humble, contrite hearts. Pray unceasingly for this. There are many who do not acknowledge the existence of sin. If they do not recognize their own sinfulness, how can they repent? How can they understand their abject need for mercy? If they will not come to the waters of forgiveness, how can they be saved? My child, this is a grave situation. Many, many souls are in grave danger. During this Year of Mercy and especially during this holy season of Lent, let your fasting and prayer be for sinners. Be an agent of mercy. With your prayers, immerse these poor souls in the fountain of mercy that gushed from my side. Do not let my mercy go un-accessed. Be the one to pray unceasingly for souls. Children, the days of mercy will one day draw to a close. Use all the tools I have given you to immerse poor sinners in my mercy. Children, there is so little time.”

O my Jesus, merciful Savior, in the Divine Will I immerse all sinners through the Flame of Love in the ocean of your mercy. I ask that through this Lent you will use my poor offerings to best advantage. So I offer them to you in the Divine Will through the Flame of Love of our Immaculate Mother. Save souls, O Merciful one! Save souls! Amen.

The wailing of the children is a clamor that has penetrated all of heaven…

Lamentation 2:19 Arise, cry out in the night, at the beginning of the watches! Pour out your heart like water before the presence of the Lord! Lift your hands to him for the lives of your children, who faint for hunger at the head of every street.

“My beloved, the wailing of the children is a clamor that has penetrated all of heaven. Pray for the children, for their suffering is great. They who are little and depend on the generosity and care of others have been betrayed, abused, killed, neglected, and tortured. I am not deaf to their cries—nor should you be! The world has become a perilous place for children—even children in the womb! Do not cease to pray and to work for those whose needs are so great. The innocent have a special place in the heart of God. I am calling all my warriors to intercede on their behalf. The children suffer! Who will care for them? Who?”

O my Jesus! Forgive me for not doing enough to see to the needs of the little ones whose cries fill all of heaven! Here I am Lord, I come to do your will. There are so many in such great need. Show me where you want me to serve and give me the grace to help where I can. Jesus in the Divine Will I place all of the suffering children of the world in the Flame of Love. Blessed Mother, holy Guardian Angels, see to their needs and send them many compassionate souls to help them. Merciful Jesus, in the Divine Will I pray for the deliverance of all children from evil and for the conversion of all the perpetrators of evil against children. Merciful Jesus I trust in you! Amen.

Woe to those who oppress my people!

Jeremiah 12:14-17 Thus says the Lord concerning all my evil neighbours who touch the heritage that I have given my people Israel to inherit: I am about to pluck them up from their land, and I will pluck up the house of Judah from among them. And after I have plucked them up, I will again have compassion on them, and I will bring them again to their heritage and to their land, every one of them. And then, if they will diligently learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name, ‘As the Lord lives’, as they taught my people to swear by Baal, then they shall be built up in the midst of my people. But if any nation will not listen, then I will completely uproot it and destroy it, says the Lord.

“My child, there is nothing that happens that does not have ramifications in the spiritual realm. Woe to those who oppress my people! I am being scourged and mocked by legions! I am about to rattle the nations, to wake them from their sin and error. Pray for nations, my children. Pray for those who are mercilessly persecuting me in my followers. Do I not feel every one of the blows myself? Do I not weep in the loneliness and despair of those imprisoned for being my followers? Do I not feel the gnawing hunger in my belly that my displaced children feel? You must know that my justice will be appeased in this as in all things. A great shaking* is about to come for the whole world. Pray that souls will be converted. Offer your prayers in the Divine Will for greater efficacy. I will hear you and my mercy will flow through you into the world. Mercy triumphs over justice. Yet the Divine justice is always satisfied. Pray. Fast. Do so in the Divine Will and your will accomplish infinitely more than you can imagine. Children, pray!”

O my Jesus, in the Divine Will I offer you all the sufferings of my life linked to your sufferings and those of your most holy Mother. I do this in the name of everyone from Adam to the last man so that in the Divine Will your justice may be satisfied and your mercy may triumph. I offer this in reparation to the much-wounded Trinity, for the conversion of souls, for the conversion of nations, and for the conversion of those who are persecuting you in your followers. I offer these prayers in the Flame of Love and crown them with the fiats of Jesus and Mary. Blessed Trinity of Love, have mercy! Amen.

(*The “great shaking” may or may not refer to an earthquake. It may be figurative, or it may be literal. One way or another, it will shake the nations.)

You will one day lament the time you wasted, when you could have been praying…

Jeremiah 7:13-15 And now, because you have done all these things, says the Lord, and when I spoke to you persistently, you did not listen, and when I called you, you did not answer, therefore I will do to the house that is called by my name, in which you trust, and to the place that I gave to you and to your ancestors, just what I did to Shiloh. And I will cast you out of my sight, just as I cast out all your kinsfolk, all the offspring of Ephraim.

“My children, how much longer must I put up with this generation? The time is very short indeed, for many have turned their backs on my Word and spurned my love. Therefore I will give them what they desire, a world bereft of its Creator. Woe and lamentation! Pray and fast, my children. There is much to be done, for when my children have lost everything, then I will reveal myself to them and, outside of grace, it will be too much to bear. You, my children, must be dispensers of grace in the world. While you are able, receive me in the Holy Eucharist. Carry my presence to the world. You will be a light shining in the darkness. I have told you these things to spur you on to more heroic sacrifices and prayers. It is easy to be distracted, but I tell you, you will one day lament the time you wasted, when you could have been praying. Children, unite yourselves to me. Live in me. Let your daily duty be consecrated to me, that I might sanctify the world through your every movement. Live in me. We have so much to do! Children, listen!”

Heavenly Father, already I lament the time I have wasted frivolously. In the Divine Will I ask you to redeem those wasted moments and use them to your glory. Help me not to waste any more precious moments, but to consecrate my every thought, word, and deed in the Divine Will, through the Flame of Love of our Immaculate Mother. Here I am Lord, I come to live in your holy will. Here is my weakness, Lord, give me your strength. Amen.

(Just to clarify, our daily duty is not to be considered time wasted. In fact our daily duty when linked to the Divine Will is a great grace for the world.)

The work of rebuilding must begin now…

Nehemiah 2:17 Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, so that we may no longer suffer disgrace.

“My children, now is the time for the rebuilding to begin. Yes there is much more to come, and much more must be torn down, but the work of rebuilding must begin now. Just as an architect must work hard before the first stone is laid, so too must you lay the groundwork of prayer so that what is built is firm, the materials strong. What you see now crumbling is what was hastily put up. Everything rooted in me endures, even if for a time it is not visible or evident. My children, you have a crucial role in the building up of the Church. Take time to pray, to adore, to fast, so that what will be built will give the most glory to God. My little ones, I am counting on you. Nothing is too small to be offered. Give me everything, wrapped in the Flame of Love and you will see miracles!”

Heavenly Father in the Divine Will I go back and re-do all I have ever done so that you may be glorified in all the acts of my life. I wrap this offering in the Flame of Love so that your kingdom may come and your Church may be rebuilt as an impregnable fortress, mighty, pure, and holy. Jesus in Mary I trust in you. Use me as you wish to accomplish your designs upon the world. Amen.

Your sacrifices mean so much right now that I will multiply their effect on the souls you are praying for…

Ezekiel 2:9-10 I looked, and a hand was stretched out to me, and a written scroll was in it. He spread it before me; it had writing on the front and on the back, and written on it were words of lamentation and mourning and woe.

“My children, do not fear what is to come and what is already here. I have been warning you, calling all to repentance. Now the time is at hand when all will know the awesome power of God. Their idols will be smashed one by one. There will be a loneliness on earth that has never before been felt on such a grand scale. This will be the loneliness of a soul bereft of its idols. But it is in that loneliness that I will act to show each soul the futility of life apart from me. When they have nothing left, it will be their final opportunity to turn to me. Many will do so, but there are also many who will be lost. Do not let up on your prayers. Your sacrifices mean so much right now that I will multiply their effect on the souls you are praying for. Do not take this gift lightly my children. Offer your prayers and sacrifices with great confidence for I mean to use you in new ways to conquer the immense territory of souls in need of conversion. Children pray!”

Beloved Father of my heart, your unimaginable mercy is such a gift to us. In the Divine Will accept all my prayers and sacrifices, especially my Flame of Love prayers, to advance the cause you have mentioned—the salvation of souls. I offer all to you in the Holy Name of Jesus, the Beloved, through the Flame of Love. 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.

Do not be blind and deaf to the sufferings of your brothers and sisters who are now in exile…

Nahum 3:7 Then all who see you will shrink from you and say, ‘Nineveh is devastated; who will bemoan her?’ Where shall I seek comforters for you?

“My children, do you see how these words are fulfilled in your day? Do not be blind and deaf to the sufferings of your brothers and sisters who are now in exile. Once again I have no place to lay my head. Do not be deaf to the cries of my children who are suffering and in peril because they bear my name. Come to their aid as you are able. Fast and pray for them. Their suffering is great and their martyrdom is near. Let mercy inspire you. Ask in prayer what the Lord wishes you to do for the Church that is suffering in this way. Heaven weeps. Join your heart to the compassionate heart of my Mother. She will lead you and you will comfort those in dire need. Children, have compassion, for the measure you give out is the measure you will receive. Children, be my hands and my heart in the world. In you my merciful heart has an outlet. Unite yourselves to my merciful heart and you will see miracles. I am working in you, but you too must work. Do your part. The days darken and your Lord needs you.”

O my Jesus, what a mystery it is that our poor efforts are needed by the Almighty, that within the perfect plan of salvation our cooperation is needed. Jesus, show us how to help with our prayers, sacrifices, and with our material goods, including our time, talent and treasure. We unite ourselves to your Merciful Heart. Have mercy on your persecuted children, Lord. In the Divine Will I fly to them to bring them your comfort. Please see to each one’s most pressing need and especially the children, the elderly and the ill. Jesus we trust in you. Save souls! Amen.

(One way to assist those souls is to support or become involved with on of the following organizations: Aid to the Church in Need or the Catholic Near East Welfare Association. Both organizations offer various ways we can assist the Suffering Church.)
