Easter Sunday Conversion from Good Friday Graces

AM+DG

Recently mum re-posted a series of messages that Jesus gave about Good Friday. In one of them, He said that great graces will be given on this day for non-believers to convert; if they just open their heart for one day.

 The time has come for all of you to open your hearts to Me, for just one day, to enable Me to fill you with special graces. These graces will now be bestowed on those of you who have forgotten that I Exist, as the time draws nearer to Good Friday. (14 April 2011 @ 11:00am)

That reminded of a story, yet to be shared here by me; where the most amazing and wonderful thing happened in my family.

On Good Friday of 2014, that very prophecy came true

I had been praying Crusade Prayers for a few years and my prayers for my mother-in-law, in particular, increased around Christmas time in 2013. She was terminally ill and I desperately longed for her conversion to Our Lord. For Christmas, I made 10 Mass offerings because I could not think of anything a dying person would need more than that. Those Masses were for her conversion.

By Holy Week, she was hospitalized for a downhill turn and then stabilized, having had a drip put in. Her condition was being managed and she was always grateful to have visitors.

I prayed very earnestly that Good Friday that I would be able to share the faith with her and that she would start to believe and trust in God. I started the “Novena of the Chaplet of Mercy” on Good Friday because it is a very powerful prayer and I believe in all it’s promises.

I participated in the “Stations of the Cross” on Good Friday morning. Knowing I had to speak to her that day, I thought ‘I wish I had a holy card of Jesus Divine Mercy image to take with me’.

But all the shops were closed on Good Friday and there was no piety store at the Chapel. ‘Where would I get one now? If only I’d been better prepared!

After we had finished our devotions, while leaving the Chapel, a little old Italian lady followed, waving something at me. “Here! Here! Would you like one of these?” In her hand was a small pile of Jesus Divine Mercy images and she was offering me one (and anyone who would take them!) I knew it was Providence. I was so grateful! I now had something to take so that my mother-in-law had something to meditate upon, something that could be used to start a conversation and something that might console her.Divine Mercy.jpg

I then drove to the hospital to visit and to sit and talk with her a while. I felt brave, impelled by a sense of urgency as, at each turn, we worried whether she would make it out of hospital this time.

So when I sat by her side, I talked with her about what God the Father and Heaven is like. For the first time ever, in the 20 years I had tried to talk to her about matters of faith, I saw her face light up and saw her really listen. It was clear she had opened her heart that day to receive what I had to share. I sensed the difference in her reception. I knew she responded differently; she marvelled at what I said! And told me that I made a very good teacher and that I should be a scripture teacher! I chuckled because I knew it wasn’t my work, but the Lord’s! The right words just seemed to come out as I spoke.

As I spoke, I heard a rustle, sensed someone present and then noticed the silhouette of a person hovering just outside her curtain, which was drawn for some privacy, in the busy 4 person hospital ward. I sensed the person “waiting”. So I paused after a couple of sentences and asked if they needed to come in. Nurses often came and go checking blood pressure etc. so I deduced that it was probably a nurse waiting to do observations.

“Oh don’t mind me, I’m just loitering,” he said (through the curtain).

“You can listen if you like!” I warmly offered, as it was obvious that’s what he’d been doing. I’m not sure if he was a nurse or a janitor; he wore a uniform. He then went away. I said a silent prayer for him.

At the end of our conversation I gave her the image for her consolation; to meditate upon and to relieve her fears. She accepted the small holy card gratefully but even more, my words.

I sensed a change in her that day; a turning and an opening of heart. This was a fulfillment of Jesus’ prophecy about receiving special graces on Good Friday and particularly in relation to the Novena of Divine Mercy.

Then the next day (Holy Saturday) she had a bad turn again and lost the power to speak. She was very frightened by this.

Early Easter Sunday morning, she regained her speech and the first thing she did was tell her youngest son to call the priest. She wanted to become Catholic and receive all the blessings of Faith! He rang me. “Can you get Father R?” Imagine me trying to get a priest to the hospital on Easter Sunday!! It sounded impossible. I messaged our priest and jumped in the shower, not expecting a reply. He would be at Mass for sure. It was about 9am. When I got out, I read that he was on his way! Before I could even get to the hospital, he had completed all the rites of initiation. She had been baptized Presbyterian so that day she made her First Confession, Confirmation, Anointing of the Sick and First Holy Communion. He then left just as quickly as he arrived. An Easter Sunday conversion! What a miracle!

Afterwards, the whole family arrived, being called to her bedside, as she appeared to be very unwell; barely able to talk or breathe. So we gathered around her bedside.  She then called up all her children one by one, from eldest to youngest. Another surprise was in store from the Holy Spirit.

She called the eldest, her daughter first. “I want you to become Catholic.”

“No mum, I’m not going to do that.”

Undeterred, she continued, AND I want you to baptize your children.”

Next, she called her eldest son, gave the same imperatives and received the same replies, and the next son followed, right down to the fourth child, the youngest, who finally said “Yes, mum” because he never said no to his mum. She kept repeating her wish regardless of their answers because she knew what had to be done.

For myself, I had tried to do what Jesus’ message said:

“My children, use Holy Week to remind all of the Sacrifices I made for sinners.”

My mother-in-law was one of the people that Jesus talks about who had ‘forgotten that He exists’. She hadn’t meant to. She had had a hard life; without ‘rich soil’.

These graces will now be bestowed on those of you who have forgotten that I Exist, as the time draws nearer to Good Friday”.

I told her to talk to God in her own words (like the message says) and to pray for others.

“As the time for the powerful Novena of the Divine Mercy draws close, this time will be used to flood your souls with a special Gift from Me. Do now as I say, and pray in your own words, to Me today. The graces I will give you will not only bring you closer to My Sacred Heart, but will fill you with the Holy Spirit”.

She told me about a dream she had; she felt she needed to save 3 children who were in danger. She didn’t know who they were and was really worried about them. It was a recent dream because it was playing on her mind and she asked me about it. I told her that she may have had the dream because God wants her to pray for them; in order to save them. I explained that the danger may be spiritual, although it felt physical. This was a new idea to her; that she could offer prayers for the salvation of others. I am not sure if I also talked to her about offering her sufferings at that time, but at some stage I did. Gradually in little bits, she learnt what was needed about seeking and giving forgiveness and offering prayer.

These prophetic commands to her children, and her own conversion, were the result of the great graces received on just one Good Friday, making it the most joyful Easter ever!

She also recovered unexpectedly and remarkably well because of the Anointing of the Sick (as Catholics often do) and lived for 7 more blessed months. One of her last acts as a Catholic was to make a good Confession shortly before she died. She died just before Christmas and I believe is now counted among the holy souls, or even the saints in heaven.

And just so you know about the youngest son, he has not ‘turned Catholic’ yet, but after many hardships and by yet another miraculous grace, he and his wife received their first child in to the world, recently. And later this month, I am to be her God-Mother.  🙂

Message 0062 on the 14 April 2011 @ 11:00am

“Special Graces promised for Calling on Jesus for just One Day”

My beloved daughter, thank you for devoting more time to this most Sacred Work. The time has come for all of you to open your hearts to Me, for just one day, to enable Me to fill you with special graces. These graces will now be bestowed on those of you who have forgotten that I Exist, as the time draws nearer to Good Friday.

As the time for the powerful Novena of the Divine Mercy draws close, this time will be used to flood your souls with a special Gift from Me. Do now as I say, and pray in your own words, to Me today. The graces I will give you will not only bring you closer to My Sacred Heart, but will fill you with the Holy Spirit.

Pray My Novena from Good Friday and include as many souls as you can and I will save every single one.

For those of you who fall back, even after devotion to Me, I will lift you up again and again. Never be afraid to turn back to Me if you stray. I will never forsake those who keep coming back to Me. As sinners, this will tend to happen. Never fear, I Am standing next to each of you ready to embrace you every time. Sin can be forgiven. Never feel guilty for sin if you need to turn to Me to ask for forgiveness. I Am always there.

My children, use Holy Week to remind all of the Sacrifices I made for sinners. My Compassion is still strong. It has never diminished for souls, even those whose sins cause Me deep offence. If a soul seeks forgiveness, then that sin will be banished.

My Novena of Divine Mercy will instill the most powerful graces when recited from Good Friday in the lead up to the Feast of Mercy nine days later. By reciting this you will not only save your own souls but millions of others. Do this for Me.

Your ever-loving and loyal Divine Saviour,
Jesus Christ.

Testimony – “A new heart”

AM+DG

A Book of Truth/JtM Crusade Prayer Group miracle

David explains:

“I was working as a volunteer at OLOC Nursing Home, taking the people to Mass and bringing them back after Mass. After working there for over 30 years, a friend of mine – Keith E. – became a resident. He had earlier loaned me the Book of Truth by Maria of the Divine Mercy. After an operation in 2015, Keith passed away. My wife and I attended his funeral.

Keith was the one who first introduced me to The Book of Truth in about 2013, by giving me a copy that had been given to him by a close friend from church. I recognized it straight away as being the Truth. My wife and I were so convinced that she copied out the prayers by hand so that we could say them. We had no computer. We eventually found a Crusade Prayer Group through someone who approached us at a local parish, which our daughter attended.”

David’s wife continues:

“Keith was a devout Catholic who sincerely loved Our Lord. He led a good life and went to Confession daily after he had a vision of his life. One day, about 2 years after he died, I had a dream of him.”

The Dream:

“Keith was praying over me very intensely – over my head. I didn’t hear what he prayed, but at the conclusion he said:David you have a new heart’. (It’s funny he addressed my husband through me, his wife. In the Bible it tells us that the two shall become one.) At the exact moment that he said that, before I could even process it, my husband, David burst through the door. Immediately, I told David that I’d just had a dream about Keith and that Keith said ‘David, you have a new heart’.”

David’s medical history. 

David’s doctor said that David had a diseased heart. He had had a stent inserted previously, but he started having problems. His wife explains: “The doctors had wanted, for quite some months, to install a pacemaker because David’s heart was part slow and part fast, and he had been getting very weak and very slow.” He ended up in hospital twice to try and find out the cause of his irregular heartbeat. On one of these occasions, the doctor sent him to hospital in an ambulance.

Finally, as a form of intervention, the doctor took his car keys away. His doctor was convinced that he needed a pacemaker for his heart. He was sent to the hospital a third time – for tests. The conclusion was that perhaps the existing stent was the problem.

The medical check up after the dream:

After this, his personal doctor, once again examined him. She asked him if he was taking his tablets. He answered “no” because he said that he felt fine now!  She accused him of being disobedient! What the doctor didn’t know, of course, was that in the meantime heaven had intervened for him. She examined him and had another doctor, who was there, examine him as well. This time, both doctors said that there was nothing wrong with his heart. His doctor said: “It’s a miracle”.

David’s wife concludes: “In walking now, he’s back to normal and I find it hard to catch up to him.”

Postscript:

The Book of Truth Connection – Co-incidence or God-incidence?

Donna and I are the mother/daughter team that runs this site. The amazing thing is that Donna had known Keith, and I had known David and his wife, from our respective Church communities many years previously.

Donna was the young woman and friend of Keith who originally gave David the Book of Truth. Donna and Keith used to have coffee after Mass and talk about everything going on in the Church. Even now, one of her children often plays with one of Keith’s grandchildren.

After Keith became ill and entered the Nursing home, he gave the book to David, who was a volunteer helper there. It was that same Book, given to Keith by Donna, which introduced David and his wife to the Mission of Salvation. Donna was completely unaware of what had happened to the Book.

I met David and his wife at one of our regional JtM meetings last year in October, 2017.  I was surprised and happy to see him again after many years, so I went up to say hello and invited him to our prayer group.

He was already attending one, but this was on a different day and time. He does amazing work evangelizing and distributing the literature that we print, (See Menu item for “Tools of Evangelization” on this website). David says that it was about this time (i.e. October, 2017)  that the miracle had occurred.

Another amazing fact is that the Book of Truth given to Keith by Donna, and then handed on to David – was purchased by me for our prayer group members. (Postage was cheaper that way – after all, we live far away – “Down Under”).

Keith – a common friend to Donna and to David;

and David and his wife – a common friend to Keith and Donna’s mum, –

had interceded with prayer to save David’s life.

————————————

Thank you, Jesus for Your Love and care for us. You promised that you are present at every JtM Prayer group. We thank You for all the signs and wonders that you give to us, and all the members of our prayer group that you send to us. Please help us to always do your Holy Will. Amen.

Crusade Prayer Miracle Healing in My Family

The miracles I promised the world, through My Crusade Prayers, will increase

*Message given by Jesus on May 11th, 2013.

(Excerpt reproduced below:)

“Suffering can be reduced through the prayers of My remnant army, because I bequeath to them special graces. The miracles I promised the world, through My Crusade Prayers, will increase and many will witness healings and conversions. It will be through these miracles that I will make Myself known, even to the most hardened of sceptics.”

The Story

On August 17th, 2017, we had driven on a long trip (8 hours) to attend a family wedding in the far North of NSW. We checked into a little motel and went across the road to see the relatives of the groom in order to let them know that we had arrived safely and to greet them. Unfortunately, the flu had hit all of the groom’s immediate family members quite hard and my husband’s beloved uncle came out of his bedroom only briefly to greet us, while coughing painfully, and then he went back to bed to rest. Many were ill and the wedding was only a day and a half, away.

The next day we discovered that uncle had taken himself to the doctor because he got even sicker overnight. The doctor admitted him straight to hospital because it appeared he had pneumonia. Hopes of him attending at least the wedding ceremony of his youngest (and last) son to be married, were quickly dashed as he became even more ill and unable to go anywhere on the Saturday. I became gravely concerned that he may not even live through the week after the wedding and naturally was anxious about the tragic impact this would have on the whole family. He was very much loved by all and everyone missed his presence, almost immediately, in every situation. It put a sombre cloud over the festivities.

As the only practising Christian (that I know of) on my husband’s side, I felt a responsibility to pray continuously and I recruited the help of our Crusade Prayer group, (of course) and even my teenage son, who offered his intentions at Mass each weekday for the next 4 weeks. Also, I asked for Masses to be offered by our local priest for this intention. I was praying for the salvation of uncle’s soul first and foremost, for his family and, of course, for his healing, according to God’s Will.

The news of double pneumonia on the lungs had come through by now and things only got worse. He was transferred to 3 different hospitals altogether to try to help him, he suffered a heart attack on the way in the ambulance, they talked of placing him in an induced coma and then his kidneys shut down too. I wondered whether he was Catholic and how I could talk to his family about Extreme Unction. His family were told to gather round as he probably wouldn’t survive.

His lungs were basically stuffed and he was intubated and on oxygen. The doctors couldn’t help him, although they had been trying of course, and he had lost all the little weight that he had in fighting this, to be just skin and bones. And although originally a fit man, he was 70 years old so there wasn’t much in his favour….except for the large number of people praying for him!                      And then something miraculous happened. Uncle realized that he was bound to die and that God alone could help him now. From deep in his heart, he spoke to God and asked Him to make him better. And God, in His Graciousness and Goodness, did! Overnight, he started to feel better and he started breathing normally again! In uncle’s mind and heart, the reason for this was, unmistakably, by the hand of God. 

At this sudden and marked apparent improvement, the doctors took more X-rays the next day. Soon their surprise turned to disbelief. It showed that his lungs had become completely clear- overnight! Two different, separate doctors said to him that it was completely unexplainable and they had never seen anything like it. They were astounded and clearly implied that it was miraculous.God heals

Furthermore, uncle did not even have to go in to rehab! The medical team had anticipated that he would need at least a month of rehab after ICU; to learn to rehabilitate his lungs and recover his kidneys. But, instead, he was able to go straight home! Isn’t that amazing?!

He is now just having physio at home to help him regain his muscle strength (to walk better) and he has to put back on a lot of weight. He only weighs 50kgs after the ordeal. When my husband rang to see how he was, his uncle told him the personal story of his miraculous healing. Until that point, we thought he just recovered in a natural manner; nothing else had been mentioned by anyone else. It’s funny how some people don’t like to spread the story of, or lay claim to, a miracle. It’s not that uncle won’t tell you, (he will!) but that not everyone seems to want to hear it. And this is coming from a man who does not attend church or usually speak of anything much to do with God. This seems to be the sign for ‘hardened sceptics’ as mentioned in the prophetic message given to all those who dedicate themselves to Jesus’ Mission of Salvation.

We are all just so grateful to have him back. And after all my worrying and fretting, I also found out that he is actually a baptised Catholic, after all!

Of course, all the prayers and Masses were invaluable. Even an old, Italian neighbour had a Mass said for him. But in the end, all it took was for uncle to ask God himself. Because the sign was for him, not for us who already believe. It was the only way he could know it was actually a miracle, that it was done ‘by God’ whom he called to, and that it was done in response to his plea for help, in response to his prayer. God cares that much- for him

How good is God! We all must offer thanksgiving too (not like the ungrateful lepers)- for yet another miracle and a healing, as Jesus promised. I think that since beginning this Mission, I have received within my family, 4 full conversions and 3 miraculous healings, of various types in a relatively short space of time. Jesus has certainly been true to His promise! May this almighty sign of God with us, lead souls to seek Him with sincere hearts, for He is very near.

Thank you, Lord Jesus!

Could this be a Sign of the Anger of God’s Son?

You know the old joke; “I couldn’t enter a church or the roof would cave in?”… well, those same people who make jokes like that, are now attending Mass AND receiving the Holy of Holies; without any fear of God; without shame, without a sense of unworthiness or repentance. Could it be that God sent them a sign and the roof did cave in?

In the last week of August, in the oldest church in Malta, in the middle of the night, the roof came crashing down. There was an almost perfect symmetrical hole, exactly in the centre of an artwork of the heavens, as if it came from there… But what’s even more noticeable is exactly where it fell.

It crashed down directly onto the modern altar, destroying it in shocking rubble. The new altar was completely destroyed and the rest of the church completely untouched. The pews were unmoved, neither was the lectern touched. They eerily stand witness to what happened in the middle of the night and seem ready to receive the congregation.

Any congregation sitting in the pew, seeing the destruction of the old altar would be shocked. The symbolism of the old altar left standing in its magnificent beauty, unveiled, as it was, by the destruction of the modern altar, and appearing to almost rise out of, or stand defiantly against the rubble, is not lost on me… It is now the only altar in the church.

 

The reasons why Jesus may be angry with this church are due to the Maltese bishop’s statement which used AL to open the path for homosexuals and those living in other irregular unions, who are unrepentant with no firm purpose of amendment, including but not limited to re-married divorcees, to receive Communion unworthily. First this was theoretical.  Then resisting priests were denounced and threatened with excommunication. Then this evil started to be implemented and thereby defiled the Altar of God and the Holiest Sacrament.

These two articles report the news and the second gives additional reasons why God may have sent this supernatural sign.

Is this a sign of a Prophecy fulfilled?

Extract from the message given to Maria Divine Mercy, below:

 MOTHER OF SALVATION FOR PRIESTS: TO REMAIN TRUE TO THE CHURCH OF MY SON ON EARTH YOU MUST BE PREPARED TO  FEED HIS FLOCK

2013.09.23

My child, many signs will be made known from the heavens, upon the roofs of my Son’s Churches, when the final changes are made in the liturgy of the Holy Mass.
All those who keep their eyes open and their ears alert, will witness the anger of my Son, in a way in which they cannot fail to notice.

(You can read the full prophecy here: https://missionofsalvation.wordpress.com/message-0919/ )

Well, I pondered this and prayed and asked God to send me a sign; some explanation of why this thing in the church had occurred. The message from Blessed Mother is for priests to remain true to Jesus’ Church and to be prepared to feed His flock in the way in which it was meant to be fed; with reverence, respect and belief in His True Presence. Being worthy by obeying His Commands. I know that the traditional priests maintain this teaching and practice, some of the Novus Ordo priests also do. Many of Malta’s priests now, sadly, do not. I then opened my CTS New Catholic Bible directly on this reading: 2 Chronicles 13- 2 and I read through to Chronicles 14: 1-8.

The Heading in my Bible is:

“Abijah and Loyalty to the Legitimate Priesthood.”

13 In the eighteenth year of the reign of King Jeroboam of Israel, Abijah became king of Judah, and he ruled three years in Jerusalem. His mother was Micaiah daughter of Uriel, from the city of Gibeah.

War broke out between Abijah and Jeroboam. Abijah raised an army of 400,000 soldiers, and Jeroboam opposed him with an army of 800,000.

The armies met in the hill country of Ephraim. King Abijah went up Mount Zemaraim, in the highlands of Ephraim, and called out to Jeroboam and the Israelites: “Listen to me!” he said“Don’t you know that the Lord, the God of Israel, has given the sovereignty of Israel to David and his descendants forever? It is an inviolable covenant for him and his sonsYet, Jeroboam, son of Nebat, a servant of Solomon, Son of David, has risen in revolt against his lord; worthless men, scoundrels, have rallied to him and they forced their will on Rehoboam son of Solomon, then a young man and timid, powerless to resist them. Now you propose to fight against the royal authority that the Lord gave to David’s descendants. You have a huge army and stand there with the gold bull-calves that Jeroboam made you for gods! 9 You drove out the Lord‘s priests, the descendants of Aaron, and you drove out the Levites. In their place, you appointed priests in the same way that other nations do. Anybody who comes along with a bull or seven sheep can get himself consecrated as a priest of what is no god at all!

10 “But for part, our God is the Lord whom we will still serve and have not abandoned him. Our priests are sons of Aaron who minister to the Lord and those who serve are Levites . 11 Every morning and every evening they offer him incense and sacrifices burned whole. They present the offerings of bread on a table that is ritually clean, and every evening they light the lamps on the golden lampstand. We do what the Lord has commanded, but you have abandoned him12 See how God is with us, at our head; see his priests with the trumpets, who will sound them to call us to battle against you. Sons of Israel, do not fight against the Lord, the God of our ancestors for you will not succeed.”

13 Meanwhile, Jeroboam had sent some of his troops to ambush the Judean army from the rear, while the rest faced them from the front. 14 The Judeans looked around and saw that they were surrounded. They cried to the Lord for help, and the priests blew the trumpets. 15 The Judeans gave a loud shout, and led by Abijah, they attacked; God defeated Jeroboam and the Israelite army. 16 The Israelites fled from the Judeans, and God let the Judeans overpower them. 17 Abijah and his army dealt the Israelites a crushing defeat—half a million of Israel’s best soldiers were killed. 18 And so the people of Judah were victorious over Israel because they relied on the Lord, the God of their ancestors.

19 Abijah pursued Jeroboam’s army and occupied some of his cities: Bethel, Jeshanah, and Ephron, and the villages near each of these cities. 20 Jeroboam never regained his power during Abijah’s reign. Finally the Lord struck him down, and he died.

21 Abijah, however, grew more powerful. He had fourteen wives and fathered twenty-two sons and sixteen daughters. 22 The rest of the history of Abijah, what he said and what he did, is written in The History of Iddo the Prophet.

2 Chronicles 14

“Asa and his reform of public worship”

King Abijah died and was buried in the royal tombs in David’s City. His son Asa succeeded him as king, and under Asa, the land enjoyed peace for ten years.

 Asa pleased the Lord, his God, by doing what was right and good. He abolished the foreign altars and the high places, broke down the pillars and sacred poles, and cut down the symbols of the goddess Asherah4 He urged the people of Judah to look to the Lord, the God of their ancestors, and to obey his teachings and commandments5 He abolished the high places and the altars of incense from all the cities of Judah, and so the kingdom was at peace under his rule. He built fortifications for the cities of Judah during this time, and for several years there was no war, because the Lord gave him peace. He told the people of Judah, “Let us fortify the cities by building walls and towers, and gates that can be shut and barred. We have control of the land because we have done the will of the Lord our God. He has protected us and given us security on every side.” And so they built and prospered. King Asa had an army of 300,000 men from Judah, armed with shields and spears, and 280,000 men from Benjamin, armed with shields and bows. All of them were brave, well-trained men.

________________________________________________

The connection to me was pretty clear but then on rising, the next morning, Monday 28.08.17,  I opened on:

1 Maccabees 4: 46-51
The heading is:

“The Purification of the Temple”

Then Judas and his brothers said,
    “Now that our enemies have been defeated, let’s go to Jerusalem to purify the Temple and re-dedicate it. 37 So the whole army was assembled and went up to Mount Zion. 38 There they found the Temple abandonedthe sanctuary a wilderness, the altar profaned, the gates burned down, vegetation growing in the courts and the priests’ rooms torn down. 39 In their sorrow, they tore their clothes, mourned bitterly, threw ashes on their heads, 40 and prostrated themselves on the ground. When the signal was given on the trumpets, everyone cried aloud to heaven.

41 Then Judas ordered some of his soldiers to attack the men in the fort, while he purified the sanctuary. 4He chose some priests who were blameless in their observance of the Law and who were devoted to it 43 to purify the sanctuary and remove the stones of the abomination that had been defiled and put them in an unclean place. 44 They discussed what should be done with the altar of holocausts, which had been profaned 45  and very properly, decided to tear it down, that it might never become a reproach to them from its defilement by the pagans. So they tore down the altar 46 and put the stones in a suitable place on the Temple hill, where they were to be kept until a prophet should appear and decide what to do with them. 47 Then they took uncut stones, as the Law prescribed, and built a new altar on the lines of the old one. 48 They restored the Holy Place, and the interior of the house , and purified its courts. 49 They made new sacred vessels and brought the lampstand, the altar of incense, and the table for the bread into the Temple. 50 They burned incense on the altar and lit the lamps on the lampstand, and there was light in the Temple! 51 They placed the loaves of bread on the table, hung the curtains, and completed all the work.

52-54 The twenty-fifth day of the ninth month, the month of Kislev, in the year 148[a]was the anniversary of the day the Gentiles had desecrated the altar. On that day they made a lawful sacrifice was offered on the new altar of holocausts, which they had made. The new altar was dedicated and hymns were sung to the accompaniment of harps, lutes, and cymbals. 55 All the people bowed down with their faces to the ground and worshiped and praised the Lord for giving them victory.

56 For eight days they celebrated the re-dedication of the altar. With great joy, they brought burnt offerings and offered fellowship offerings and thanksgiving offerings.57 They decorated the front of the Temple with gold crowns and shields, rebuilt the gates and the priests’ rooms and put doors on them. 58 Now that the Jews had removed the shame which the Gentiles had brought, they held a great celebration.59 Then Judas, his brothers, and the entire community of Israel decreed that the rededication of the altar should be celebrated with a festival of joy and gladness at the same time each year, beginning on the twenty-fifth of the month of Kislev and lasting for eight days.

60 Then they built high walls and strong towers around Mount Zion, so that the Gentiles could not come in and trample and defile it again. 61 Judas placed a detachment of soldiers there to guard the Temple. He also fortified the town of Bethzur, so that the people of Israel would have a fortress facing Idumea.

I think that God takes his Holy Temple, His priests, His commandments, profanation, and desecration of His Altars pretty seriously, don’t you? Our Lady’s message was that signs would be sent on the roofs of her Son’s Churches, showing his displeasure. No matter what physically caused this, the symbolism of that gaping hole and the destroyed altar, in the oldest church in Malta, cannot be missed.

God bless+++

The Greatest Miracles will be Conversions: Monica’s Story

Monica’s Conversion Story

(Translated and disseminated by Jesus to Mankind Crusade Prayer Warrior- Paul M. The subheadings have been inserted by managers of this site as well as the highlighting).

My name is Monica Stancu and I live in Romania. This is a true story about how Jesus changed my life. I now believe that every conversion is, in fact, a miracle ! The best decision I have ever made was to follow Jesus. To begin, I would like to share with you about the ‘old’ Monica.

The ‘Old  Monica’

I was baptized into the Orthodox Church and as a young girl I would sometimes accompany my mother to Mass because she is a Catholic. As a family we did not practice our faith and we attended church very rarely ! Looking back on my thirty-four years of life to date, it’s been a disaster. I’ve broken all of the Ten Commandments; living a care-free life as though God didn’t exist. Unbeknown to me during this time, I was being blinded by Satan. I was not aware that in my sinfulness, I was offending God. One thing I did know is that life for me had become miserable !

During 2012, I was experiencing a crisis with professional and financial problems. I felt trapped. Things were going from bad to worse. My friend in Germany was experiencing similar problems to me and we had discussions about how we could solve our problems. In June 2013, I made a decision to begin attending Mass on most Sundays. It was a comfort for me, although I understood very little about the Catholic faith. During this time, I continued with my worldly and sinful ways because I didn’t know any better. Most of my friends were Protestant and one was Catholic; although later even he became Protestant. When we were together, God became our main topic of conversation and we had many long discussions. At that time I had begun searching for the truth. I probed my friends with many questions and as you know Protestants have many optimistic views about Christianity and this captured my attention. They invited me to their church and I obliged. They offered me many books and literature for me to read, including one written by Joel Osteen, and I knew that they were trying to convert me to Protestantism.

The search

Deep in my heart I knew something wasn’t right, so I began reading the Bible but I understood very little and I had a strange feeling in my stomach, which made me feel bad. I continued opening the Bible at random although the feelings continued and I would often close it again after a matter of minutes. I was searching for a story about someone like me and I couldn’t find it. Everything seemed ‘too deep’ for me to understand. Things took a turn for the better when, one day, I began reading the Book of Revelation. It was very confusing for me and I may as well have been trying to read Chinese.

Then my imagination was sparked to look on the internet for interpretations about what I had been reading. Scrolling down the various web pages, I came across some beautiful prayers and I downloaded them for later. Accompanying these prayers was information about a certain ‘Book of Truth. I began reading; one message after another… I couldn’t stop. I was absorbing everything like a sponge and I couldn’t get enough of everything. The prayers too, were so beautiful.

A book changed everything!

For the first time I knew that my heart had be touched by something BIG. I couldn’t resist staying away from the messages, even for one day. With this new-found prophecy, I began sharing everything about the Book of Truth with my good friend in Germany, and I asked him if it was possible for us to change our lives and to live as God wanted. His answer was that I should beware of becoming ‘extreme’ in my faith. I continued reading every message in the Book of Truth, as I believed every word was coming from Heaven. I began praying the prayers which I love. I was learning my Catholic faith from the Book of Truth and not from the usual formation that one would expect. I began to learn about the Rosary, Confession, the Mass, Holy Communion, Divine Mercy, God’s unconditional love for every one of His children regardless of faith or creed. I felt like I’d struck it rich and inherited a goldmine! I wanted to shout to the world the Book of Truth!!  

The new Monica

Daily Mass became the norm for me. I began making lists of all the sins of my life and bringing them to Confession. I was now praying the Rosary and Crusade Prayers daily. I was learning about Sister Faustina and the wonderful gift of Divine Mercy and the prayer of the Divine Mercy Chaplet. I also began reading about the lives of the saints and I learned a lot from this. Although my heart had begun to flower, I also felt a tremendous sorrow for how I had lived my life prior to my conversion. I was ashamed beyond words. I knew that Jesus’ love and forgiveness had conquered all of my sins at His great Sacrifice on Calvary. I would tell anyone and everyone about what the Book of Truth had done for me and especially my own mother.

Fighting for conversions in the Remnant Army

I’ve shared this Mission of Salvation with all the priests that I know. Actually I think that many people listen to me out of common courtesy, but often it has been like talking to a wall. I continued to read the messages over the phone to my good friend, in the hope that one day he would experience what I’ve encountered. I’m happy to say that since this time he too has received a conversion and he made a long list of the sins of his entire life and brought them to his first confession in twenty-two years! Upon hearing this good news, I became very emotional and tearfully happy for him. He told me that after his Confession, he felt so free!

Our Lord is working in a way that we cannot understand. I have found the internet to be a marvelous way of becoming an active part of the Mission of Salvation by sharing my conversion story and encouraging others in this mission. God has formed His Remnant Army to rise-up and be prayer warriors for the conversion of mankind, hence the name of the Crusade of Prayer groups- Jesus to Mankind.

Although this is the Lord’s work, He needs us to be praying, participating in The Mass, Rosary, Divine Mercy Chaplet, The Seal of the Living God, The Crusade and Litany prayers, time before the Blessed Sacrament, confessing our sins to a priest. We are in a war for souls. The war is fought in the heavens between God and Satan – Angels vs devils. There are no aircraft, tanks, warships and guns…only Prayer.

The Way Forward

This June, 2017, will be the third anniversary of my conversion. Year by year, my Faith in God has continued to evolve and deepen. I now love praying the Rosary and I’ve even started to make Rosary beads as a way of giving something back to Our Lady.

I truly believe that we are on a Mission for God that cannot fail. I believe that the Book of Truth is God preparing us for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ in Glory. And I now wish to make a very big pointI have tried my best to tell people about the Book of Truth. There have been many instances where the same people come back to me and say that others convinced them that Maria Divine Mercy is false. People believe all of the lies written about her on the internet. People think that if a priest or theologian who they like, does not believe in revelations, and tell you not to follow something, that they are right. But I believe that people should pray first and then be guided by the Holy Spirit and then follow their own hearts concerning this prophecy. Pray for the Gift of Discernment; pray as you never have before! How can it be that two solid priests beg to differ on the same authentic prophecy ?

I can tell you that God is speaking to His people through Maria Divine Mercy and I feel that no priest, no bishop and no cardinal could change my mind regarding the Book of Truth. I hear Jesus’s Voice in these messages and they are giving me huge consolation. Finally, I testify truthfully that my Conversion has come about solely through my discovery of the Book of Truth. I have attained knowledge and wisdom through reading the messages and I’ve received huge graces through the prayers, which I continue to pray daily. I have changed from living a depressing life of sin, to feeling every moment the hope and joy of living for Jesus and Mary. I look forward to the Second Coming of Jesus and to meeting you all in the New Paradise.

There, by the grace of God, go I.

Sincerely in Christ,

Monica.

Paul’s Story: God Imparts the Meaning of the Miracle Oil

+AM+DG+

Paul had just been to Mass on Friday before work and received Jesus in Holy Communion.jesus-and-eucharist

Normally afterwards is a time of deep prayer, & personal thanksgiving- of intimate union with Jesus.
This time, something special happened.st-therese-quote
He felt something he describes as “flames of gold” which felt like electricity, fill his body and mind and he felt in a type of ecstasy. He was so overcome that he thought his heart was going to (literally) fail him. Afterwards the rest of the day was a breeze. He was so joyful all day as he thought about Jesus as he went about his daily work. The whole day felt amazing! It was the tiniest infusion of a fraction of what he imagines heaven will feel like. It was so overwhelming that his body couldn’t take it, he thought, on this earth.h

He realised later that this was preparation for something else.

At the end of the day, he said his nightly prayers and went to sleep. That is until 1.09am on Saturday on the 11th June, 2016.

At that time, when he was asleep, he suddenly had an infusion of a sentence emblazoned in his mind, as if written by electricity or by a welder.
This experience was not euphoric as such, although it recalled to mind the earlier experience, but was more intentional and instructional in nature; as if to impart specific detailed information.

The messfullsizerenderage was about the miracle oil that Rita received as a sign on Easter Sunday. It immediately woke him up.(See link below for original story of the oil)
Paul immediately wrote down the message, in the middle of the night. He did so not because he felt he would forget the message, but that this was a directive from God which he had to immediately obey. (Afterall, you cannot argue with the Almighty Will of God!)

This is what he received:img_0550

The oil has three gifts (or functions):
  1. Healing of the Sick
2. Wisdom of the Word
3. Triumph of the Cross

His experience was profound and unmistakable. He then felt that he had to get up and pray the Rosary, although it was the middle of the night.

He prayed 10 decades. He felt fully submitted to the Will of God as he had been learning that you don’t argue with God over the past week, through a series of events that had been preparing him.man-praying-rosary

Paul explains that these miraculous gifts that accompany the oil are only obtainable through genuine faith and prayer. He said that if you believe and are in need of these gifts, which are freely offered by God for all believers, to contact him and he will ask Rita to send a small amount for you. It is not some sort of trick or magic. It is a gift offered by God to those who choose to pray and believe and you may be granted a request, such as a specific healing by God, only if it is within the Holy Will of God.

His story after the message continues…

After finishing 2 Rosaries, he felt the call to walk to his local Catholic church.. which didn’t make sense considering it was 2.50am in the morning! He arrived outside the church and sat down, looking towards the window, towards the tabernacle, which he could barely see and not knowing why he had been called there, he decided to continue to pray the Third set of Mysteries of the Rosary.

Within his intentions was a sick friend, Peter, for whom God had asked him to pray for healing earlier that night (when he received the message) and he also knew to give some of the oil to Peter for his healing.

He looked towards the True Presence Of Jesus in the Eucharist, reserved in the Tabernacle of that church. While he was there praying, wondering why he had been called there, he suddenly realised that Jesus, our loving God who had suffered and died to atone for our sins, was all alone in the Church, in the tabernacle; lonely and awaiting our love and company. No- one was there to honour Him. He was all alone –  sitting there, waiting in the tabernacle while people were out all night, drinking, partying, taking drugs and fornicating. They were doing all this sin, like there is no tomorrow or end to this life ever, and Jesus is there waiting for them, forgotten.
He was given to understand that Jesus’ Body, there in the Eucharist, is in agony, as if stretched on the Cross, waiting for them.jesus-agony
Paul felt in a very personal way then that Jesus had invited him there at that time because He was lonely and Paul felt all the loneliness of Our Lord come over him in a wave of emotion. And he cried.
He cried at Jesus’ loneliness, solitude, for His suffering on the cross for our sins so that we can be with him in heaven. He suffers so often alone…people don’t visit in the Church, people don’t think of Him during the day, people don’t treat each other well as He told us- ” To love one another as I have loved you…”
People forget about Him. So often He’s alone and He suffers for our sins. And He will continue to suffer for our sins and He will continue to provide the grace, so that we change.

But He won’t interfere with our free Will.

Because it would not be right for a God to impose His Will upon our human will. WE must freely choose Him, we must freely give ourselves to Him and offer our sins to Him, to be cleansed and have our sins washed away with His Blood.
And Paul also knew at that moment that Jesus, as a true Person, with true human emotions like any of us, was truly lonely and He had called Paul there because He was truly alone. And that’s when Paul cried, at His solitude, for His suffering, because He was forgotten by so many. So few people love Jesus. So few people give Him a single thought.

Don’t let yourself be that person who has forgotten Jesus and the Love He has for you.

He loves you so much that He will chase you down, hunt you and rescue you from the jaws of hell but He cannot do that without your consent.
That was the simple but profound message that Paul was given at the Church. The whole of it.

Then he also knew he was called to pray the Rosary continuously for the next 3 days in reparation for those who don’t know the Rosary, and for people who make jokes about it, and to fast for 3 days also. This was for the healing of people, including you.

Paul says that he will continue to make those sacrifices periodically for people who want the oil and healing. They should make a request, (he will do his best to get it to them) by writing to him at:

Miracleoil101@gmail.com

Finally Paul Says if you have faith, miracles are possible. What he was freely given he now passes on to us, because we then can have the opportunity to avail ourselves of this grace from God.

With God’s blessings +++

POSTSCRIPT:
Paul also explains that earlier he had previously understood that the meaning of the oil is that all people have to be signs of Jesus’ presence like the oil in the lamp which burning alight points to Jesus presence in the sanctuary.
We have to be like that candle of the burning of the flame of the Holy Spirit which is the Love of God and also as that flame, we are the beacon of the light which tells people that Jesus is here, alive. That’s what we are! We are part of this whole mystery. We are the witness to everyone. Like that candle. This explains the sign of the miracle.

This grace of additional hidden knowledge was about the threefold gift is able to impart to believers. I found the gift “Wisdom of the Word” to be interesting because on the day of the miracle, Rita went up to the priest, smeared some on his forehead and said
“Always proclaim the true Word of God.!” I pray that priest then has the gift to always know what that is and to speak the truth with courage.

(The 2 part video by Paul was published on July 5th and 6th, 2016 on YouTube under the titles: Miracle Healing Oil- Part 1 and Miracle Healing Oil- Part 2. It was from here that the information was taken and summarised.)

A sign from St Januarius ?

+AM+DG+

The blood of St Januarius is kept in a vial in a church in Naples and liquefies usually 3 times a year on certain dates. It has been occurring for the last 600 years.

st-januarius-blood-miracle

“In more recent years the liquefacations and viewings have taken place three times a year: on September 19, the feastday of the Saint; on December 16, which is the anniversary of the eruption of Vesuvius in 1631; and on the first Sunday in May, which commemorates the translation of the relics to Naples. The blood has failed to liquefy several times, each time coinciding with the outbreak of disease, famine, war or political suppression. It is for this reason that Neapolitans rejoice at each liquefaction.” From: http://www.miraclesofthechurch.com/2010/10/blood-miracle-of-st-januarius-gennaro.html

Blood, when removed from the body, coagulates and eventually spoils. The specimens of blood which we have as relics from some martyrs are still active today, and still remain scientifically unexplainable.

History has shown that on the rare occasions that the blood does not liquefy, a terrible event occurs.

“December 16 marks the commemoration of a warning before the eruption of Vesuvius in 1631… The last time the miracle failed to occur was 1980. The citizens of Naples associated this with the earthquake of Irpinia, when 2,900 people died in the worst natural disaster in Italian post-war history [i.e. since 1945]. Prior to that, it was in 1973 when Neapolitans waited in vain for the blood to liquefy. That year, Naples was visited by a cholera epidemic…”

“Just a few months ago, Naples was added to the list of cities at risk from being affected by an eruption of Mount Vesuvius, which is considered to be the world’s most dangerous volcano. Since December 16 is historically tied to St. Januarius and the volcanic outbreak of Vesuvius in 1631, as mentioned in the news report above, the failure of the blood miracle to occur on this very day this year may indeed be a bad omen for the city.” From: http://novusordowatch.org/2016/12/not-this-time-saint-januarius-blood-fails-to-liquefy/

Is it a natural disaster for Italy? WWIII?  Or  something involving Bergoglio?

Donna Liane wrote:  “ But I guess the miracle is a sign for the faithful- the cessation of which (and the exact timing by heaven of this cessation) is a severe warning which should make all feel apprehensive.”

TtCrusader wrote“Also note dec 16 is the day before the birthday of the false prophet”.

Donna Liane: “Wow! Oh my gosh! What does that mean???! I know it seems obvious in some ways- a sign that Bergoglio will soon change the words of the Consecration to destroy/deny/prevent the Presence of Our King in the Eucharist – like a predilection or prophetic sign!

What else could it mean? Maybe that the cup of The Martyrs’ blood is finally full/overflowing? (Revelations)

This needs discussion and prayer. It is a shocking thing for those with eyes opened.”

I guess we have to wait and see!
