2 Timothy 2:20-21 In a large house there are utensils not only of gold and silver but also of wood and clay, some for special use, some for ordinary. All who cleanse themselves of the things I have mentioned will become special utensils, dedicated and useful to the owner of the house, ready for every good work.
“Beloved, do not seek to know the plans I have for you, but do your part to remain clean and ready for use. My plans are for your good. Trust in me. Remove all blockages to grace. Eliminate bad habits and especially work to eliminate habitual sin, no matter how small a thing it may seem to you. Habitual sins are like the ropes holding down a hot air balloon. Until all are cut, the balloon cannot fly. Work and pray to be delivered of these bindings. Ask and ask again. Confess and confess gain. Try and try again. The only failure is to stop trying. I tell you I will reward you for even the smallest effort. All these tethers are impeding my work. See them for what they are and be glad to be rid of them. We have much to do together. Rid yourself of all that keeps you apart from the Divine Will. Then you will know true joy.”
Jesus for us this is impossible, but for you all things are possible. Then grant us grace upon grace and the strong desire to be untethered, especially from our habitual sins. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, lead us and heal us. Amen.
Zephaniah 1:17 I will bring such distress upon people that they shall walk like the blind, because they have sinned against the Lord.
“Oh my child, how I long to take all my dear children to my breast to comfort, heal, and restore them. But they turn away from my love, from my merciful heart. They run headlong into their own grief and destruction. In their sinful folly, they bring distress on their own heads. Woe to all the inhabitants of the earth! Sorrow and woe! Little remnant, do all you can in prayer and sacrifice to offer reparation to my much-wounded heart. Do you think I take delight in the death of the sinner? On the contrary—I long for him to turn back to me and live. Pray constantly, dear children. I am coming to restore the earth, but first, what is corrupted must be destroyed. Lean close, my children. I am with you through it all.”
O my Jesus, draw me closer to your merciful heart than I could ever manage on my own power. Take all that I have to give, my joys and sorrows, my weakness, my love. Take my every thought, word, deed, heartbeat and breath, purified in the Flame of Love, and in the Divine Will apply it where it would do the most good. Jesus, I love you, I trust you, I surrender myself joyfully to your loving, perfect plan for all humanity. Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus! Renew the face of the earth!
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.
Matthew 2:17-18 (After the slaughter of the innocents by Herod) Then was fulfilled what had been spoken through the prophet Jeremiah: ‘A voice was heard in Ramah, wailing and loud lamentation, Rachel weeping for her children; she refused to be consoled, because they are no more.’
“My child, who is weeping for the children now? Not only are the innocent being slaughtered, but innocence itself is being slaughtered. The Son of Man again has no place to lay his head, for filth covers the earth. My child, heaven weeps over the loss of innocence. The brightest light has been extinguished from the earth. Weep and wail, my children, over the slaughter. Gird your loins, for the King of Glory will not allow wickedness to triumph. The days of evil are numbered and the enemy grows frantic. Cling to me, cling to my Mother. We are near to you. Be ready, dear soldiers. Fight the good fight with every spiritual weapon I have given you. The triumph is near.”
Oh my Jesus, in the Divine Will I offer all the Masses offered from the Last Supper to the last Mass, in reparation for the slaughter of innocents through abortion, and the slaughter of innocence through pornography and vile teachings. Lord have mercy on us. Flame of Love work in us to defeat evil and blind the enemy. May innumerable souls take up the special graces you offer. Jesus and Mary, lead us! Protect us! Fight in us! We place all our trust in you. Amen.
(Here is a Novena to the Holy Innocents for the protection of children.)
1 Maccabees 2:27-28 Then Mattathias cried out in the town with a loud voice, saying: ‘Let everyone who is zealous for the law and supports the covenant come out with me!’ Then he and his sons fled to the hills and left all that they had in the town.
“My beloved child, a time is coming when you will be forced to choose between comfort and the truth, between security and faith. Do not hesitate, but like the Maccabees, let your heart not be divided. Follow Truth. Cling to Faith. Set your heart on things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. My child the tempter knows your weakness. In your preparations do not neglect a thorough assessment of your weaknesses. Ask our Mother to assist you. Any unrepented sin is a gap in your armor. Discipline yourself, especially in your areas of weakness. If you do this you will find that I transform your weakness into strength. Cling to me and to our Mother and you will not be put to shame. Child, if our Mother points out a weakness of yours, do not rebel, but humble yourself, even if you have no respect for the person she chooses to reveal your fault. Turn everything to your advantage by remaining humble and willing to root out the most tenacious weeds in your garden. Child this is imperative. Your humility is your greatest strength. Cultivate it.”
Beloved Jesus, thank you for this teaching. There is still much that I cling to. Jesus help me to follow you, the Truth, help me to cling to our Mother, Faith. Help me to run down the path of humility. Help me to root out the tenacious weeds of my pride. Clothe me with our Mother’s humility. Blessed Mother, teach me. Lead me. I cling to you and your holy Son Jesus!
Ephesians 4:20-21 Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.
“Beloved do not doubt! I am showering graces in greater abundance than ever before upon those who are open to receiving them. This has nothing to do with your own merit of grace, but has everything to do with the significance of the times. Where sin abounds, grace abounds all the more. Then do not limit what I wish to do in you and through you. Believe that I am acting in new ways. Throw yourself into my service. Hold nothing back. Let go of all that you cling to. This will make the coming trial easier to bear. Become love. Love those I send you. Repent as soon as you sin. Pray ardently. Desire to live in complete union with me. Fuse your own will into mine. I am calling you anew, dear children. Look into your lives and cast off what is unnecessary. Cling to me. Become love. Children I am calling. What is your response?”
Beloved Father of my heart, by your grace, my response is, Fiat! In the Divine Will I beg for the grace to give my will completely over to you. Help me to accept every gift and grace it pleases you to give me. Help me to pray more ardently and divest myself of all unnecessary attachments, that I might become love and live only and always in the Divine Will. Jesus and Mary please obtain for me these graces, especially that I might fuse my will into the Divine Will. Here I am Father, I come to live in your holy and adorable will. Amen.
Psalm 99:5 Extol the Lord our God; worship at his footstool. Holy is he!
“Beloved, if you knew the power of praise, if you fathomed one small portion of its depth, you would not cease to praise your God. Extol your God! This is the Christian’s secret weapon, for evil cannot exist where God is praised. Let ‘Holy!’ be your cry. Let not your lips open unless you are praising God in your spirit. The soul that praises God continually in her heart will never have to confess sins of speech, for the odor of praise will emanate from her words, even when she speaks of mundane things. Praise is a remedy for sin, but not just a remedy, for it can prevent sin. Ponder this deeply, my children. Praise God continually in your hearts. In the Divine Will alone is this possible. But I have made this gift available to you, so make use of it. Do not let so powerful a gift lie dormant. Children, live in praise through the gift of the Divine will. I am near.”
Heavenly, Father, Son and Spirit, Mighty God, Blessed Trinity of Love, in the Divine Will I ask for the gift of continuous praise. May every beat, breath, and movement I take or make be a reverberation of praise in my soul and in all of heaven! May your holy name be glorified! May your praises be sung on earth as in heaven! In me O Lord, I want you to find the praises of the Gloriana* eternally repeated in me through our Most holy Mother. Holy are you! Holy! May all creation worship you! Amen.
(*Gloriana: The angels and saints in perfect communion with the Blessed Trinity; the perfect unity of heaven.)
2 Maccabees 2:5, 7 Jeremiah came and found a cave-dwelling, and he brought there the tent and the ark and the altar of incense; then he sealed up the entrance. (Jeremiah) declared: “The place shall remain unknown until God gathers his people together again and shows his mercy.”
“My beloved children, the time is drawing near when this prophecy will be fulfilled. After the time of sorrow, comes the time of glory, the days when my children will know and love me. And they shall be one with me as I am one with the Father and the Spirit. I cannot convey to you adequately how much my heart longs for this. You cannot comprehend the depths of my longing. If I communicated this longing to your heart, it would burst immediately. Children, pray for the coming of my kingdom, the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of our Mother. Long for it as I do. If I find even a sliver of longing in a heart, reparation is made for the great and many sins of the age. Give me your longing children! I will use it to shorten the days.”
Jesus, I am filled with longing for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of our Mother. Magnify my poor offering in the Divine Will so that the days of sorrow may be shortened and so that your much-wounded heart will be comforted. Blessed Mother may your longing fill our hearts. Maranatha! Come Lord Jesus! Come Holy Spirit! May your kingdom come and come quickly! Amen.
Nahum 1:3 The Lord is slow to anger but great in power, and the Lord will by no means clear the guilty.
“Little ones, be littler still. Show me your abject poverty, your complete lack of merit, your utter dependence on grace. Your humility alone can spare you from what your Lord has planned. Yes the guilty will face justice, but are not all men guilty? Does not every heart carry the tendency to sin? That is why I exhort you to be humble. Lower yourself. When I see a soul humbling himself I see my own Son in him. I see him clothed with the merits of my Mother, she who was the perfect embodiment of humility. Take every opportunity to grow in humility. Embrace each opportunity as Christ embraced the cross. Children, if you knew the true value of humility, you would sell all you have to obtain it.”
Heavenly Father, help me to embrace humility without counting the cost. Grant me every grace I need to “sell” all my prized possessions, namely those things I cling to that keep me from attaining this virtue in greater measure. Without grace I cannot do this, Lord. I am poor in virtue, completely without merit outside of grace. Mother, show me how to walk path of humility with greater fidelity. Jesus help me! Amen.
Jeremiah 11:13 For your gods have become as many as your towns, O Judah; and as many as the streets of Jerusalem are the altars to shame that you have set up.
“My children do you see how many “altars to shame” are in your midst? Can you count them? I assure you, you cannot. But each one is numbered and each one has purchased its own disaster for its people. And even those who are innocent, who never bow down to what is shameful, all must participate in the scourging that sin has purchased. When the surgeon removes a diseased organ, does not the whole body suffer? Children do not fear these things, but rejoice that your Divine Surgeon will not allow the cancer to spread any further. And more than that, your Divine Healer will bring you through the treatment to a state of health not even dreamed of. Then pray, my children! Pray for the cancer to be removed. Pray for those who do not even see their illness. Pray for the altars to shame to be dismantled. Children, you are seeing this already. Then cling to your divine and loving Physician. Cling to hope. He is with you. He is near. You are his.”
Loving Abba, thank you for these words of comfort. Divine Physician I praise your for all you are doing to restore what has become gangrenous and terminal. We trust in you O Lord. Remove the cancer. Open the eyes of those who do not realize how ill they are. Dismantle the altars to shame that are so numerous and such abominations. Holy Infant Jesus, may your coming at Christmas bring renewed strength to all who trust in you. Jesus we love you! Save souls! Amen.
