Take orders from your General, our Mother, and do not waver in your resolve…

Isaiah 14:20 But the Lord will have compassion on Jacob and will again choose Israel, and will set them in their own land; and aliens will join them and attach themselves to the house of Jacob.

“My beloved, do not fear these days of sorrow and woe. A cosmic battle is underway. The powers of darkness rage and roar. Know and believe, my children, that the victory belongs to me and to my little band of warriors. Remain in my Will. Take orders from your General, our Mother, and do not waver in your resolve. Victory is near! Believe, hope, pray, and be at peace. Shalom.”

O my Lord I pray for the coming of the Kingdom of the Divine Will and the Triumph of the Immaculate. Mama, please give me your orders and make me a willing soldier for Christ. May all souls be united under the spotless banner of Jesus. Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us! Amen.




Dear friends and fellow sojourners to the Heavenly Homeland,

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. (Phil 1:2)

It recently occurred to me that this Advent marks 20 years since I first began hearing the Lord speaking to my heart. It was in the summer of 1997—the year our Holy Father St. John Paul II had dedicated to the Second Person of the Trinity, Our Lord Jesus Christ—that I prayed for a deeper relationship with Jesus. During that Advent I decided to spend time alone with Jesus in the Tabernacle. From the first visit that Advent, Our Lord graced me by pouring His love into my heart and speaking to me His words of love, encouragement, and correction. Those early experiences were overwhelming to say the least. I had many confirmations of my ministry in those early days, most notably my gold leaf (see my blog page titled “The Real Presence”). Over time, the sensible feelings faded and these days I walk in this gift by faith and not by sight, so to speak.

I look back over these 20 years of grace with abject humility at what Our Merciful Lord has been able to accomplish through this unworthy sinner. Like St. Paul I can only boast of my weakness—if I did not have so much to learn, I would not have so much to share! If I had not made so many mistakes and missteps I would not have this collection of loving corrections that have guided me and my readers and set us back on the right path. God is so good! As it has often been said, He writes straight with crooked lines.

So, I want to express my gratitude to God, in the Divine Will, through the Flame of Love, for all He has done for me and for all those who have been helped through this little ministry. In the beautiful words of St. Paul to the Philippians I pray for all my fellow sojourners: “I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you, because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now. I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.” (Phil 1:3-6)

May his holy Will be adored in our hearts and lived in our lives. May His kingdom come and come quickly! Amen.

Humility is the antidote to the world’s ills…

Dear friends, these are the days to be “wise as serpents and innocent as doves” as our Lord told his disciples in Matthew 10:16, when he sent them out “as sheep in the midst of wolves”. I have reblogged here a post on humility as the antidote for our times, as well as two other of my previous messages. Today, feast day of the Immaculate Conception, we have the perfect model of humility, a stunning example of what can be accomplished when one is fully ordered in the Divine Will, and completely empty of self. Let us learn from her and from these other messages on humility what God is asking for us in these treacherous times. May our Mother keep us all in her care as we await the blessed hope of the Triumph of her Immaculate Heart and the coming of the Kingdom of the Divine Will.

2 Peter 2:1 There were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will introduce destructive heresies and even deny the Master who ransomed them, bringing swift destruction on themselves.

“My beloved, my child, these are the days to test everything. Do not be deceived, but take every thought captive to Christ. Keep yourselves pure and humble. Avail yourselves of the sacraments. Read Scripture and the lives of the saints. Read holy books rather than subject your soul to deception. These are days for caution, my children. Spend your time wisely in holy pursuits. Do not give the devil a chance to work on you. Work out your own salvation through prayer, fasting, and true conversion of heart. If there is any pride in you, root it out. Indignation, anger, self-righteousness, these are all manifestations of pride. Let the saints guide you on the path of humility—most especially our pure and lowly Mother. Ask her and she will guide you. Children, my peace I give you. Do not trade it away for a counterfeit. Rest in me. I am near.”

Jesus we trust in you and rest in your merciful heart. Mother most pure, keep us safe from the deceptions of the evil one and never let us fall into error or serious sin. Thank you Jesus for your gracious care of our poor souls. We love you! Amen.

John 15: 20 Remember the word I spoke to you, ‘No slave is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours. 21 And they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they do not know the one who sent me.

“Beloved child hear me well. All these things will happen to you as well, for there are many on this earth who do not know or acknowledge either me or my Father. It is these who will be your persecutors and, my child, some of these are your brothers and sisters in the church. Do not be alarmed when these things happen, but pray always for the light of Christ to illuminate the hearts and minds of those who persecute you for my name’s sake. Be always willing to forgive, for the enemy of your soul, the true enemy, would love to fill your heart with self-righteous indignation. Look to the cross at these times, my child, and repeat my words with your will, if not your heart, ‘Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.’ Then your heavenly Father will hear your prayer and much goodness and grace will be won for sinners.”

Father, Son and Spirit, I need every grace you would give me in order to withstand and endure what is to come. I trust in your abiding presence, your everlasting love and goodness, and your infinite power. Father, Son and Spirit, I trust in you! Amen.


Isaiah 37:30-32 And this shall be the sign for you: This year eat what grows of itself, and in the second year what springs from that; then in the third year sow, reap, plant vineyards, and eat their fruit. The surviving remnant of the house of Judah shall again take root downwards, and bear fruit upwards; for from Jerusalem a remnant shall go out, and from Mount Zion a band of survivors. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.

 “Children, again and again I have told you, do not be afraid! Surrender to me. Live in my will. Be docile, humble, little. Filter your thoughts through the sieve of humility. Use the finest sieve to filter out the least impurity of pride. Pride is what you must fear. Let humility be your safety. Ask our Mother to teach you the ways of humility. No creature was ever…

What are you doing to grant increase to the heavenly treasure?

Luke 19: “I tell you, to all those who have, more will be given; but from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away.”

“My child, does this seem harsh to you? Do you not see that I am speaking of the harvest of souls? Then what will I not do to get them back? I entrust to each of you, my faithful ones, a territory of souls. What are you doing to grant increase to the heavenly treasure? If you do nothing, returning to me a single soul—your own—can I rejoice in that? What about the other souls I wished to save through you? Shall I abandon them because of you? No! I will give them to a soul whom I know and trust to grant increase. Those lost souls are mine and I do not mean to give them up. Expand your territories, dear souls! In the Divine Will this becomes unimaginably fruitful. Place no limits on your territory but make it as expansive as my Will. Do not place limits on me for I have no limits. But become humbler and more willing to do all you can to grant increase to the heavenly treasury. Be bold in the Divine Will, my children. Be bold in this unimaginable grace.”

O God of power and goodness! How far beyond us are your designs! Open our hearts to your treasures of grace, that we might become tireless workers in the Divine Will for the harvest of souls. In your mercy, take what little we offer and multiply it to the infinite in the Divine Will. Expand our territories. Grant us increase through the Flame of Love of Mary Immaculate. Help us to be bold in the Divine Will. May your kingdom come and come quickly. Amen.

Know and believe that what I have done for you and what I have given to you is incalculable in human terms…

May this post from 2011 spur us on to a greater desire to live only and always in the Divine Will. I invite you to visit my Divine Will Resources page if you are new to this “new and Divine holiness”.

I also at this time ask you to pray for the repose of the soul of Fr. Robert Young, a gifted teacher of the Divine Will, who reached many primarily through his Radio Maria podcasts, but also through his retreats. He died suddenly on November 5, 2017. His official website is https://divinewilllife.org. His radio program archives may be found at: http://www.divinewilltallahassee.com/radio-archives.

Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.


Galatians 2:19-20 I have been crucified with Christ; yet I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me; insofar as I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God who has loved me and given himself up for me.

“Oh, my dear children, my beloved!What have I not done for you? What have I held back that would be to your good? Know and believe that what I have done for you and what I have given to you is incalculable in human terms. Weak, pitiful creatures that you are your Creator loves you. Poor and helpless children that you are, your Redeemer gave his life for you. Lost and fickle children that you are, your Sanctifier fills you with all the gifts in the Divine treasury. What can I ask of you that would be too much? Live in my will. Ponder…

Let your generosity of spirit lead others to praise the God from whom all blessings flow. ..


2 Corinthians 9:11-12 You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity, which will produce thanksgiving to God through us; for the rendering of this ministry not only supplies the needs of the saints but also overflows with many thanksgivings to God.

“Beloved, are you lacking in anything? Have I ever refused you my blessing?”

No Lord, you are good and perfect in all your actions, whether I understand them or not.

“Then cease your worrying. I have you in the palm of my hand. Do as I do. If I have not withheld my blessings from you, then do not withhold your blessings from those around you. Confound even your enemies with a blessing. Let your generosity of spirit lead others to praise the God from whom all blessings flow. The blessings you give are the blessings you receive, shaken down and flowing over. Do not hesitate, but be generous as I am generous. If you feel you have nothing to give, lift up your hands, and I will fill them. Then you can add your thanks and praise to that of those I bless through you. The world is in great need of blessing. Be my willing instruments, dear children and you will know true joy. All heaven will rejoice with you. Shalom.”

O my beloved Abba, what a simple thing it is to bless, and how easy it is to neglect this holy practice. May our Mother and our Guardian Angels remind us daily to bless all those you send us, especially those most in need. Come Holy Spirit with your manifold blessings, and renew the face of the earth. Alleluia! Amen.

After recording the above message, I read this on another blog: It will be the Great Miracle of light blinding Satan… The torrential flood of blessings about to jolt the world must begin with the small number of the most humble souls.”  —Our Lady to Elizabeth Kindelmann http://www.theflameoflove.org

What must I think when my children are so busy about their own affairs that they cease to give life to the Church?

I just came across this post from 2011. Let us not let up our efforts to give life to the Church!


Haggai 1:9 …My house lies in ruins, while each of you hurries to his own house.

“Dear child, what must I think when my children are so busy about their own affairs that they cease to give life to the Church*? Am I to congratulate them on their successes? I tell you I cannot! My heart is shredded and my house is in tatters. Who will weep with me? My Son is crucified anew. Who will grieve with me? Little ones, do not be among those who flee from the hill of Calvary. Support my Son as he endures his agony. Do not run and hide, but remain steadfast. Cling to my Mother’s hem** and you will be strengthened. Show your love for Christ and his Bride. Do not be ashamed, but be willing to suffer anything rather than abandon your Lord in his hour of great need. There is…

Now is the time for the utmost vigilance…

Mark 7:14-15, 21 Then he called the crowd again and said to them, ‘Listen to me, all of you, and understand: there is nothing outside a person that by going in can defile, but the things that come out are what defile.’ For it is from within, from the human heart, that evil intentions come.

“My beloved, you are assaulted daily by the sinful ways of this wicked age. Where can you go that your eyes are not assaulted by what is offensive? My child, do all you can to avoid these things, and guard against letting these things take root in your heart. What is passively seen is not sinful—what is actively dwelt upon is a grave danger. If it takes root in your heart, it will be a great struggle for you to uproot it. Now is the time for the utmost vigilance. Ask your holy angel to protect you. Place the Cross of Christ before and behind you—let it surround you. Confess often. Children, this is an age filled with grave spiritual danger. Offer all you can in the Divine Will for the sake of those who have let their guard drop. They are many, and even within the Church! I am much offended. Pray!”

O my dear Father, I am heartily sorry for my part in your offendedness. In the Divine Will, through the Flame of Love, I repent of any lack of vigilance on my part. In your infinite mercy, send your holy angels to keep me from grave sin—from all sin! I ask all this in the Divine Will, through the Flame of Love, on behalf of everyone from Adam to the last man. Lord Jesus, have mercy on us all! For the sake of His sorrowful passion, Lord God, have mercy on us and on the whole world. Amen.

Fatima Novena October 4-12…

Blessings dear friends. I call to mind the message of September 4, which called us to “retreat to the tabernacle of (our) hearts and pray for the coming of the kingdom, for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart, for the conversion of sinners, and for reparation to be made to (the Lord’s) much-wounded heart”.  I leave it to each of you to decide how our Lady may be calling you to pray in preparation for the 100th anniversary of the October 13, 1917 miracle of the sun at Fatima. There are any number of prayer options to be found online. Here are a few more ideas, any of which may be prayed in conjunction with the Rosary, Our Lady’s specific Fatima request. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!

Novena Option 1 (from a reader):

Fatima Chaplet

On the large beads of the Rosary:

My Jesus, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love you. I ask pardon for all those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope, and do not love you.

Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore you profoundly. I offer you the body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences, by which he is offended. Through the infinite merits of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg for the conversion of poor sinners.

On the small beads of the Rosary:

Jesus, Mary, Joseph, I love you, save souls!

End with three Glory Be’s.

Novena Option 2 (from a reader):

Our Lady of the Rosary, ask your Son Jesus to have mercy on us, and to give us His Peace.
Help us to heed your warning at Fatima, that we amend our lives and stop offending God, who is already offended by our sins. Our Lady of Fatima, Queen of the Holy Rosary, pray for us. Amen

Novena Option 3:

Most Holy Virgin, who has deigned to come to Fatima to reveal to the three little shepherds the treasures of graces hidden in the recitation of the Rosary, inspire our hearts with a sincere love of this devotion, so that by meditating on the mysteries of our redemption that are recalled in it, we may gather the fruits and obtain the conversion of sinners, the conversion of Russia, and this favour that I so earnestly seek, (name your intention) as well as the promotion of the Fatima message in my country and around the world, for the greater glory of God, for your own honour, and for the good of all people. Amen

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be to the Father …

Litany of Our Lady of Fatima:

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for our dear country.

Our Lady of Fatima, sanctify our clergy.

Our Lady of Fatima, make our Catholics more fervent.

Our Lady of Fatima, guide and inspire those who govern us.

Our Lady of Fatima, cure the sick who confide in thee.

Our Lady of Fatima, console the sorrowful who trust in thee.

Our Lady of Fatima, help those who invoke your aid.

Our Lady of Fatima, deliver us from all dangers.

Our Lady of Fatima, help us to resist temptation.

Our Lady of Fatima, obtain for us all that we lovingly ask of thee.

Our Lady of Fatima, help those who are dear to us.

Our Lady of Fatima, bring back to the right road our erring brothers.

Our Lady of Fatima, give us back our ancient fervour.

Our Lady of Fatima, obtain for us pardon of our manifold sins and offences.

Our Lady of Fatima, bring all men to the feet of thy Divine Child.

Our Lady of Fatima, obtain peace for the world.

O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Let us Pray: O God of infinite goodness and mercy, fill our hearts with a great confidence in Thy dear Mother, whom we invoke under the title of Our Lady of the Rosary and our Lady of Fatima, and grant us by her powerful intercession all the graces, spiritual and temporal, which we need. Through Christ our Lord. Amen
