Don't Stop!


California
 

 

BEFORE Christmas Eve Mass, I slipped into the church to pray before the Blessed Sacrament. Suddenly, I was overcome with a terrible sorrow. I began to experience the rejection of Jesus upon the Cross: the rejection of the sheep whom He loved, led, and healed; the rejection of the high priests whom He taught, and even the Apostles whom He formed. Today, once again, Jesus is being rejected by the nations, betrayed by "high priests," and abandoned by many disciples who once loved Him and sought Him but who now compromise or reject their Catholic (Christian) faith.

Did you think that because Jesus is in Heaven that He no longer suffers? He does, because He loves. Because Love is being rejected all over again. Because He sees the terrible sorrows we are bringing upon ourselves since we do not embrace, or rather, let Love embrace us. Love is pierced once again, this time by the thorns of mockery, the nails of unbelief, and the lance of rejection.

The Value of One Soul

IT was the end of a string of six concerts in several small towns on the Canadian prairies. The turnouts were poor, usually less than fifty people. By the sixth concert, I was beginning to feel sorry for myself. As I began to sing that night several years ago, I looked out at the audience. I could’ve sworn that everyone there was over ninety! I thought to myself, "They probably can’t even hear my music! Moreover, are these really the people you want me to evangelize, Lord? What about the youth? And how am I going to feed my family….?" And on and on the whining went, as all the while I kept playing and smiling at the quiet audience.

How Can This Be?

St Therese

St. Therese de Liseux, by Michael D. O’Brien; saint of the "Little Way"

 

PERHAPS you have been following these writings for some time. You have heard Our Lady’s call "to the Bastion " where she is preparing each of us for our mission in these times. You too sense that great changes are coming to the world. You have been awakened, and feel an interior preparation taking place. But you may look in the mirror and say, "What have I to offer? I am not a gifted speaker or theologian… I have so little to give." Or as Mary responded when the angel Gabriel said that she would be the instrument to bring the long awaiting Messiah into the world, "How can this be…?"

The Cosmic Surgery

 

 

THERE are many things burning on my heart, and so I will continue to write whenever possible throughout Christmas. I will send you an update shortly on my book as well as the online television show we are preparing to launch.  

First published July 5th, 2007…

 

PRAYING before the Blessed Sacrament, the Lord seemed to explain why the world is entering a purification that now, seems irreversible.

Throughout the history of My Church, there have been times when the Body of Christ has taken ill. At those times I have sent remedies.

The Great Yes

annunciation
The Annunciation, by Henry Ossawa Tanner (1898; Philadelphia Museum of Art)

 

AND so, we have arrived at the days in which great changes are imminent. It can be overwhelming as we watch the warnings which have been given begin to unfold in the headlines. But we were created for these times, and where sin abounds, grace abounds all the more. The Church will triumph.

On The Eve of Change

image0

 

   As a woman about to give birth writhes and cries out in her pains, so were we in your presence, O LORD. We conceived and writhed in pain, giving birth to wind… (Isaiah 26:17-18)

… the winds of change.

 

ON this, the eve of the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, we look toward her who is the Star of the New Evangelization. The world itself has entered upon the eve of a New Evangelization which in many ways has already begun. And yet, this new springtime in the Church is one which will not be fully realized until the harshness of winter is over. By this, I mean, we are on the eve of a great chastisement.

The Great Numbering

First published January 3rd, 2007:

 

In The Great Meshing, I spoke of the interior vision I had of the political, economical, and social machines coming together like a mesh of gears to create one Great Machine called Totalitarianism.

In order for this to take place, each individual must be accounted for. One loose bolt in a machine can destroy the whole mechanism (recall Pope John Paul II and his role in the fall of the Iron Curtain). Each person must be organized and integrated, bound and conformed in the New World Order.

The Secret Joy


Martyrdom of St. Ignatius of Antioch, Artist Unknown

 

JESUS reveals the reason for telling His disciples of coming tribulations:

The hour is coming, indeed it has come, when you will be scattered… I have said this to you, that in me you may have peace. (John 16:33)

However, one might legitimately ask, "How is knowing that a persecution may be coming supposed to bring me peace?" And Jesus answers:

In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)

Of Fear and Chastisements


Our Lady of Akita weeping statue (approved apparition) 

 

I RECEIVE letters from time to time from readers who are very upset about the possibility of chastisements coming to the earth. One gentleman recently commented that his girlfriend thought they shouldn’t marry because of the possibility of having a child during coming tribulations. 

The answer to this is one word: faith.

First published December 13th, 2007, I have updated this writing.
