NEWSLETTER NOVEMBER 2013
It is almost Christmas again and as we celebrate Jesus’ Birth, I think the best present we can give anyone is Him! He is the Light and we so badly need Him especially now as the darkness within this world and within the Church grows. We seem surrounded on all sides, it’s almost suffocating.
What comes across in this Newsletter, given to you at the beginning of advent - a new Church year - is the great need to be aware of what is going on in this world is: stay in the Light so we can see the truth!
So many changes have and will take place in the Church. Saint Michael’s article this month tells us of the preparation Holy Communion children are now being taught in schools, based upon a watery, nearly unrecognisable version of Scripture.
We have another article on the survey to parishes from the Vatican asking for feedback, the Church’s Teachings on homosexuality, abortion and contraception etc. This new thing is surprising and concerning. It leaves us wondering what will come out of it.
We are in so much danger of being swept along with the changes especially if we remain in a cloud of blindness by not dying to self. The more time we spend in the world the more influenced and tainted by it we become. The more we are in the Light, in prayer and being constantly with Jesus by dying to self and making sacrifices throughout our day, the more we will see, the more we will have a fighting chance to survive this darkness of the earth which is getting worse every day.
The King of Love
One of our images here in the House is that of the King of Love. This month we have an article on its importance and meaning. Also included is an account of the painting of the image written by the artist.
Another article is the testimony of someone whose hardened heart was softened through the image of the King of Love, through Jesus’ Messages.
Also included in this Newsletter is the Messages given by Jesus on previous years which are a good way, if taken on, to prepare. Let’s make Jesus most of all happy this Christmas!!
Friday 1 November 2013
Look, My children, look at the Words that I have already given to you and see the Truth as this world feeds you with its lies.
Come away from sin, children, do not listen to the lies of lucifer as he guides you upon a path of deceit that leads you ever further away from My Commandments.
Open your eyes, My little ones, and see that you are being guided by the lies of this world. So many have deserted Me now, so few follow in My Footsteps. Even My shepherds have deserted the flock and dance to the desires of lucifer.
Open your eyes and see what is happening, children, read the signs of your times and know that I am close.
I choose to reveal these things to you at this time so that you may see My Truth, so you may see the Words that I have already spoken come to pass.
Time is short, My little ones, and still you choose to blind yourselves rather than take on My Words of Truth.
I Love you, My beloved children, I Love you. Come back to Me.
Monday 4 November 2013
I call out to you, My children, in these Words.
I call out to you to show you the Path of Truth, the Path that leads to the Kingdom of Our Father.
Do not ignore Me, My children, do not allow yourselves to be controlled by the desires of self.
Allow Me to lead you to the safety of My Heart; give Me freedom, children, give Me the freedom to break through the barriers that you have set up against Me in your free will.
Little time is left, children, and still I call out to you but, so few take the time to listen.
Can you not feel Me within your heart?
Can you not recognise the Truth as you read these Words?
You know, My little ones, you can feel My calls; you can feel them within your heart but you do not take the time to listen.
Sit with Me in the quiet and feel for Me, listen and you will know the Path that you must follow.
I Love you, My children, I Love you.
Tuesday 5 November 2013
I went to prayer today as I felt Jesus calling me in the usual way. As I went to Him, I could feel what I can only describe as a “sweet aroma.” This is not unusual to me as I have felt it before. What was unusual was the intensity of it. It was strong and urging.
Come into the Sweetness of My Love. It is sweet and not to be unsweetened by the law of man.
It is within that Law, in obedience to it, that I Am to be found, that the Sweetness is to be found.
The calling that I give is a calling in to the Law; as a wall that protects a city, as a coat protects from the rain, as shoes protect the feet. It must be lived within to understand its protection and its perfection. Obedience is the living within, disobedience is the living without.
If the Law is changed within, it lessens its protection and that Law becomes a different thing, it separates itself thus making a copy of itself that is changed. It seems the same but it is not.
Understand the Law and you will understand My Essence and you will know who I AM.
My heart is struck at this point with this sweet aroma. It surrounded me and I felt a protection, stronger than life itself. I saw, as through a window, the darkness and the lack of this Sweetness outside of it. Although I could look at it, I was protected by the Sweetness.
What is the Law, Jesus?
It is the Essence of who I Am as I have revealed to mankind. Live within it and you live within Me.
What is the Sweetness I feel?
It is the Sweetness of knowing Me and who I Am. It is the sanctity of My Father and His Love through Me. It is My revelation (revealing) of that to you.
I would only wish to fall into it and never be found. I am ready, Jesus. My heart is singing with the ever-freshness of Your Truth, my God.
At this point, I was writing my love for Him as in a prayer of what I felt within my heart. Then like a bolt of lightning I saw it, I understood, so completely as He showed it to me.
It is sweet to the taste but, in the bitterness of its swallowing, I realise that Your Law is about to be changed and the door of its protection will be flung open and the Holy Place will be trampled upon. I see the evil ones dancing on it as though it were a grave, a triumph.
At that moment, I felt as though a cage was dropped on me and I was a prisoner and I could do nothing about this change that will take place.
I feel as though I am caged, Jesus.
It is not you who is caged but My Word within you. It is I who am the bird within your caged heart that is singing but cannot be heard. I am the Beggar that begs alms but finds only the door shut.
Oh, Jesus! Hide me in the folds of Your Heart for I fear to look at what you have shown me. I fear to see the trampling of the Holy Place for I see now that the Holy Place is You. I cannot look as I see them beating You with a law born within the deep sin of mankind. But, You tell me, it must be so. I seem to understand this without knowing how.
If only you knew what you are being protected from within My Law.
It ended here.
Wednesday 6 November 2013
Look at this world around you, children, look at My people.
See how they have forgotten Me, see how you have forgotten Me!
In only a few short years, mankind has rejected Me in favour of the lies of lucifer. he has infiltrated all parts of your society, he has driven you away from My Laws and has given you the freedom to accept sin as the norm in your lives. he gave you technology and this you have taken as power to reject My Laws.
Oh, My children, how weak you have become!
Once, you celebrated Me with great awe, reverence and love; you would have lain down your lives for Me and each other in love.
Look around you, children, lucifer has become the master of your lives: love has grown cold.
Yes, children, he asked to sift you like sand. he said that he could take you from Me in only a short span of time. I gave him the power to sift you, to test you like gold in the fire so that I could renew all things for I saw how mankind had accepted Me but, they had also accepted the lies of lucifer and had allowed his lies to penetrate deep into My Church. I, children, gave him the power to sift you so that I could renew My Bride, My Church.
In but a short time, I shall Return to you and I shall renew all My creation and you shall know Peace. You, who have battled against the desires of self that lucifer forces upon all My people, in his lies, of a better life.
Hold on, My little Remnant, be assured that the reward shall be yours for you shall see My Power upon this earth; you shall see the renewal of all creation.
I shall renew all that mankind has destroyed in his greed, in his lust for power.
I shall wipe away the scars that he has marred My creation with;
I shall renew the rivers, the mountains, the seas, the lands so all shall bloom in Love and be renewed and life on this earth shall be, once again, as I created it to be.
For a time, all creation shall rejoice in My Peace and all shall be content in My Love.
Prepare, My little ones, prepare. I Come, prepare!
Thursday 7 November 2013
Come, now, My beloved children, and walk this Path that I give to you. Die to yourselves so that the scales may fall from your eyes, so that you may see My Truth and begin to understand in earnest what is happening in this world.
The enemy is invading this city; it looks as though all is lost but, trust in Me, My children. I shall crush him at the moment he believes he is victorious.
Trust in Me, My children, read My Scriptures and see how I crushed the enemy many times as he led My people, Israel, astray.
Do not look to your lives upon this earth, children, but, rather, look to your Eternal lives. Prepare for your Eternal lives as you would prepare for a journey upon this earth.
See Me in all that you meet; love Me in all things; trust Me as you would trust your father and believe that I am with you and, We, together, shall guide many into the safety of My Fold.
I am with you, My little ones, even in this time of darkness where all seems lost. Trust in Me for, soon, I shall bring this earth to its knees and they shall realise what they have done; soon they shall see My Truth and will know that I am not a dead God.
Prepare, My little ones, prepare. I approach. I Love you.
Thursday 7 November 2013
My little children, come now and adhere to My Words for perilous times are upon you. You walk freely into the “Time of Apostasy” and most of you refuse to see. Both I and My Mother have Warned you of these things through My Prophets but you, My children, do not believe the Prophets of this time: lucifer has seen to that.
You argue with one another as to who is right and who is wrong to you; who is false and who is true. You ignore My Words because My Words do not suit you and you refuse to see the false prophets who are taking you away from Me.
Look to this world and see the false prophets, My children, as they draw you away from Me.
Look at your televisions: it is an advertisement for sin; it breaks you down until you accept its false truth and you accept the lies of lucifer.
Look to your altars, to those that call themselves My servants, as they preach false doctrines, false truths.
You are blind, children, you allow yourselves to be deceived by the traps of lucifer.
Can you not see what I have Warned you of, children?
Can you not see the Truth of what is happening around you?
Where am I?
I have been driven out of your lives by the deceivers, the false prophets that you fail to see. Instead of worrying about who is true and who is false, simply pray and I will reveal the Truth to you for My own shall recognise My Voice.
Believe in My Scriptures for I do not give you a new Message.
You can read all of My Words within My Scriptures.
Wake up, My little ones, wake up, I say, for there is little time left. The persecution of faith is upon you but you are too blind to see. The man of sin, the man of desolation, walks among you and you cry out with joy in your hearts to him and proclaim him as a man of humility, a man of faith, a man of wisdom.
Read My Scriptures, children, and see you are being deceived. Prepare! I Love you.
Saturday 9 November 2013
My children, look at how many Words I have spoken to you. Look at how many Warnings that I have given to you and still this world does not listen.
Soon, I shall send My two into this world and the peoples of this world will begin to see how they have offended Me, their God.
Prepare, My children, prepare for My Army marches and soon it will strike a devastating blow to this earth and mankind shall begin to realise that they have no control over My creation.
In their false wisdom, they believe that they have the power to control what I have created. I tell you, My children, no one on this earth truly understands what I have created for My Creation is both spirit and material. I will bring science to its knees and those who have offended Me with their false wisdom will finally see that they have been but stumbling, like blind men, who have listened to the false knowledge that has been inspired by the lies of lucifer. So blind is this generation it cannot see how short life is on this earth and so is easily led by lucifer.
I am Coming, children.
I am Coming to reward those who have held on to My Truth.
I am Coming to Breathe New Life into this earth and to undo the destruction that man’s greed has brought about.
Prepare, My little ones, prepare. I approach. Prepare!
Tuesday 12 November 2013
This day, I call to you who lie in wait like a hunter: those of you who only wait for the sensationalism of My Words. Do not wait! Come out into the world and declare yourselves before men, before Me. I tell you as I have told you before:
33 But he that shall deny Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in Heaven.
Come out and deny Me not, for I need your hands to heal, I need your lips to tell men why I Died, I need your feet to walk into dark places and bring the Light, My Light.
The darkness covers the earth: if you have eyes to see, see it, deny not My Voice; the Voice of the Shepherd. I will Come like a thief in the night and I will not wait for those who have hidden themselves from Me.
There are those blind, who lead the blind; who only see the goodness of their following Me. They raise no hand to give a drink of water to the thirsty nor, do they see in the very Light that I shed but see only what they can gain from it.
My followers, I call you to task: if you have placed your hand on the plough and have looked back; you are not worthy of Me. If you have surrounded yourself with your own light then My Light will never penetrate it.
I have come to light a Fire and how I wish it were already lit.
Saturday 16 November 2013
Open your hearts, My children, so that you may receive, so that you may listen to My call.
Children, this world has become blinded and can no longer see My Truth. It is time, children, to retrieve what has been stolen from Me. All is about to happen; Scripture is about to be fulfilled and this world has not prepared. Rather, it has followed the lies of lucifer and rejected Me, its God.
Prepare, children, prepare for the Sword of Justice is about to touch creation.
lucifer has claimed much and he begins to rise in confidence. Once again he blinds himself with his pride and, soon, he will tip the balance and I will reclaim what he has stolen through lies and deceit.
Look to the West, look to the East and see the rising of the fallen: look to the skies now that I am close.
I Love you, My children, I Love you. Prepare!
Thursday 21 November 2013
I Love you, My beloved children, I Love you.
Come to Me, feel My Love as it surrounds you, feel My Truth as it penetrates your heart.
I give you these Words from the depths of My Heart to guide you through the darkness of this world. Many Words I have given, children, many Words you have read but so few have taken on My Words of Warning. So few are willing to die to the things of this world and follow in My Footsteps.
Prepare yourselves, children, it has begun now; My Justice will touch this earth and mankind must live what he has sown in his lust for power and greed. Watch as the seasons become darker and the earth rebels and My Justice flows forth to repair and undo the evil that has been brought about by mankind’s willingness to listen to lucifer.
I have Warned you, My Mother has Warned you but you have not listened; you have walked blindly into the traps that lucifer placed for you. You have taken on his ways, you have followed him with willing hearts. Now, you must be chastised, cleansed of this evil before all creation is destroyed.
Repent, I say, repent and come follow Me. I Love you.
Monday 25 November 2013
Look to the Truth, My children, and see Me in your brothers and sisters that you meet each day. Let them see My Love shine forth from you.
Be humble in the sight of men and your God.
I am Coming, children, and you have not prepared, you have not made straight the path yet, you still believe that you are righteous.
Wake up, My children, and see the Truth for I am a God of Truth and I see through all lies, even those that you tell yourselves.
I say, prepare for I am close and you are not ready to receive your Lord. I Love you, My children, I Love you. Prepare.
Wednesday 27 November 2013
Look to the North, I am there.
Look to the South, I am there.
Look to the East and to the West, I am there.
I am in all that you see, My children, but you do not perceive Me.
Do you not realise I am the Heartbeat within your breast?
I am Life.
I am the Life that sustains all life yet, science dismisses Me as a figment of people’s imagination. Is there no wisdom left upon this earth that I created in Love?
Have all become so blind in their worldliness that they can no longer see Me?
Read the signs of your times, children, I am close.
You allow My Church to be destroyed by evil and you do nothing to stop it! You allow My children to be destroyed by evil and you do nothing to stop it! You allow My creation to be destroyed by evil and you do nothing to stop it! You allow Me to be destroyed within your lives by evil and you do nothing to stop it.
I am your Father, I am the Creator and I can see you are about to destroy all that I have created in Love.
You are My children and you are about to be chastised for your blindness, your wanton acceptance of evil.
Prepare, children, prepare.
I am the Truth and I approach to reclaim all that is Mine. Prepare! I Love you.
Faith, greed, Christmas and the Patricks' Weekend!
The Patricks weekend!
What a fantastic, spiritually awakening weekend that was!
I am a servant of the Way of the Sacred Heart and have been for many years now. The House of Prayer has been part of my life from I was a late teenager, through my twenties when I got married and started having children and on into my thirties. And still I fall into complacency; still my faith dies a death when I am put to the test, still I persist in pulling against Jesus on this Journey. Yet I have seen so, so much proof and evidence of Jesus in my life through these years.
Testimony on faith
I want to write a little testimony on faith, on how much Jesus cares and looks after each individual of us as if we were His only child, of how much He Loves us. That piece of Scripture comes to mind:
8 For every one that asketh, receiveth and he that seeketh, findeth and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.
9 Or what man is there among you, of whom if his son shall ask bread, will he reach him a stone?
10 Or if he shall ask him a fish, will he reach him a serpent?
11 If you then being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children: how much more will your Father who is in heaven, give good things to them that ask him? Matthew 7:8-11, Douay-Rheims
Basically, a little while ago we were made aware that the rented house we were living in, myself, husband and five children, had been repossessed by the bank and eventually, would be going up for sale. So we started looking for another house.
On the market
A year passed and we had seen nothing. Gradually we stopped looking because there had been no word from the bank about the house and we were in no hurry to leave. Then all of a sudden, an estate agent came out to see us and told us that the house we were living in was going on the market ‘tomorrow,’ and that we may only be able to stay for another four weeks. He told us that they would try to cut the viewings to twice a week in consideration of our family life.
He told us not to rush out as we could still be in the house for Christmas! My heart sank. That was only three months away and I was about eight weeks from having our sixth child. The insecurity and stress of this situation weighed upon me. Not only did we not know how long we would be able to stay in the house for but the thought of strangers walking through our home and into the children’s bedrooms really annoyed me.
Happy in the house
We had been very happy in the house we were living in and while it was becoming a little cramped, there was a great garden where the children could play in safety and they all loved our house. As I have said we had been looking for a year for another house and had seen nothing suitable. Getting another house that suited our family in the area we wanted was going to be difficult.
I remember going into the House of Prayer and Patrick called the members of SonLight together to listen to a new song, ‘Waiting Here For You’ that he had found. The first verse said, “If faith can move the mountains, let the mountains move…”
I remember feeling encouraged and feeling that Jesus had everything in the Palm of His Hand.
We decided to tell the children that we would have to move. They were quite upset as they were leaving basically the only house they had ever known. So, going on faith, we decided to say the little novena prayer to Saint Thérèse as a family for a house that we would all love.
House was fantastic
A matter of days into the novena, my husband found a house that had just been put up to let. The house was fantastic, exactly what we wanted. It needed some work done but we didn’t care about that. It was big enough for us and had a great garden where the children could play in safety. The funny thing is that it had been empty for some time but the landlord had just decided to put it up to let! We were very excited by this house for, as I have said, we had been looking for quite some time and had seen nothing and had even given up our search. We just couldn’t believe it.
Lot of interest
However, after speaking to the letting agent, our hopes were well and truly dashed. He told us that there was a lot of interest in the house and he basically said that while he hadn’t ruled us out completely, there was someone else who he favoured. That was on the Thursday before the Weekend with the Patricks. I was so devastated, I didn’t even say the Novena that day or the next and neither did the children.
Felt my faith returning
On the Friday night I went to the concert which marked the beginning of the Weekend with the Patricks.
What can I say! Through the songs sung that night, I felt my faith returning. Words such as “…You hold my world in the Palm of Your Hand…” and “…You’re the Lord of all Creation, and still You know my heart, the Author of Salvation, You’ve Loved me from the start…” “…through pain and sorrow, I will follow You…” There were so many songs that came alive in Me and made me realize just Who our God is and how Powerful He is. I felt humbled by the Great Love of God and I felt ashamed of my lack of faith. There is nothing that He cannot do. Words could never say What or Who He is.
How great is our God
I completed the novena then, with a renewed heart, with my young family and would you believe, on the Monday, we got word that the owner of the house had chosen to go with us for his tenants! We were elated! The best part of it for me was the children seeing that they had asked in a novena for something and Jesus had granted it. It is like a seed of faith being firmly planted in their little hearts, something that I can’t do. We are so grateful to Jesus for looking after us all in this way. I feel secure and Loved in His Heart. And, I know that He Loves every single individual human being the same way. How great is our God!
There were two more things that stood out to me during the Patricks’ Weekend that I feel changed me for the better.
Need and not Greed
One of them is when the Patricks spoke about there being no shame in being poor. They spoke about how years ago, people saved up when they wanted things but now our generation just wants EVERYTHING now. Even if you don’t have the money to buy the things that you want now, you can feel dissatisfied and discontented within because you do not have them. I know I would have felt like this when I moved house because there are so many things I wanted for the new house but this talk touched me. Not being able to afford what I want now has not changed but my heart has. I am happy to wait now for the things that I need without any discontentment of spirit. I feel at peace and know that Jesus will indeed provide me with what I need. This may seem silly to others but this knowledge has brought its own peace to my heart. It is just another beautiful Teaching of Jesus that shows me how to live on this earth.
The other thing that stood out to me was the references to Christmas. I came away from this Weekend feeling ashamed of the way I celebrate Christmas. It was said that on Christmas Day, we all give our elaborate presents, we have a massive dinner and the house is beautifully decorated. The fire is lit and everything is great and we sit back after our dinner and realise that something is missing; that warm glow inside, that deep peace and spirit of contentment. I know the absence of this for I have felt it on many, many Christmases. And I know that this happens when Christmas is celebrated in a spirit of self. For I have done this many times. Please God, may it be different this year!
Christmas is about Jesus’ Birthday; about a Saviour being born to the world. How did it become what it is? How did it become about giving expensive, elaborate presents to our children? How did it become about Santa? How did it become about food and greed? How did it become about gaining rather than giving? I don’t know but I know that I am a willing participant in this gain and that if I want to be true to Jesus, I have to change this part in my life.
Die to the world
I want to bring Jesus to people. I want to bring His Joy, Love and Peace to all whom I meet but I cannot do this if it is not within me and it will not be within me if only the world lives in my heart. I must die to the world within me, and the urge and pull of the world to celebrate Christmas its way, to allow Jesus in my heart to urge and pull me towards celebrating Christmas His Way. Look at that beautiful Message in this Newsletter He gave about finding Him in obedience to His Laws (Tuesday 5 November 2013). His Way is need and not greed; love, not selfishness; peace, not fighting or war; generosity, not gaining more and more for myself; kindness, not meanness.
Revolution of Love
His Way is beautiful and we can build a path of love to His Birthday for Him to tread on to our hearts by our striving to die to self, our efforts to love; to show Him that we do understand what Christmas is all about. Remember, just as anger and unlove spreads, so does love and kindness. We can begin our own little Revolution of Love!
Jesus, I Iove You. Teach me to love others as You Love me.
Pope Francis sends out survey to ask Catholics
about gay sex, abortion and contraception
Modern day world
Pope Francis is urging members of the Catholic Church to fill in a survey on the Vatican’s current teachings regarding contraception, homosexuality and access to communion for the divorced, to see how hard it is to practice what the church preaches in a modern day world.
The unique questionnaire, launched earlier this month, aims to determine how Christians feel about issues such as gay marriage and whether they feel such teachings are practical.
How they feel
Feedback is expected to highlight the difference between Church teachings and the behaviour of its followers.
The survey asks respondents to explain how they feel on the current official total ban on the use of contraceptives, “in any circumstance,” the ban on gay or lesbian Catholics having “intimate sexual relationships” and the prohibition on divorced Catholics who have remarried to receive Holy Communion.
New Vatican guidance
The Vatican survey has forty six questions, including: “In those cases where the Church’s teaching is known, is it accepted fully or are there difficulties in putting it into practice? If so, what are they?”
Responses contained within answered questionnaires will help form new Vatican guidance for followers, to be published in 2015.
Ambitions of modern living
The Archbishop of Westminster, Vincent Nichols, told BBC Breakfast that Catholics should be prepared to “listen” to arguments concerning same sex marriage, arguing that “listening never did us any harm.”
He also said: “On the one hand we must work to follow Christ but on the other hand we have to face all of the ambitions of modern living.”
Who am I to judge?
Pope Francis has previously warned that the Church’s “obsession” with issues of contraception, abortion and gay marriage could make “the moral edifice of the church [...] fall like a house of cards,” asking “Who am I to judge?” on homosexuality.
He has generally never been one to do things “by the book” since he was elected leader of Catholic church in May this year. His unorthodox practices have included shunning the papal accommodation offered to him and choosing to sleep in a hostel instead, ignoring private cars to travel aboard buses, taking the first papal ‘selfie’ and halting his weekly audience to kiss a man suffering with a rare disease causing him to develop tumours all over his body.
The current deadline for handing in surveys is 30 November.
Baffling and Worrying
Raises many questions
You may already be aware of this survey as it has hit the headlines in most newspapers. As you know, a questionnaire like this has been unheard of in the history of the Church. This baffling and worrying survey raises questions in me. Just where will asking our worldly opinions and how we feel about Scriptural based Church law in these modern times lead us?
Feelings will not get you into Heaven
Remember what Jesus said:
“My little children, why have you become so discontented with My Way? There is no other way to come to Me. I am the Way that you must come. I am the Way that you must travel, I am the only Way to My Father.
I am the Way of self-denial. To come through Me, man must deny his very self. I tell you in Truth: feelings will not get you into Heaven but to deny yourself the same feelings will bring you closer to Me and you will see the Way as it opens before you. It is the Way to Heaven. It is Me...” Saturday 14 November 1998
Is it not better, instead of asking from the bottom up, to be taught from the top down about how beautiful the Church Teaching is, its history - from the Ten Commandments carved on stone by God the Father Himself - and how to apply these in our daily lives, especially when we have a difficult cross to bear because our lives on this earth are short and obeying these God-given Rules will help us and others spend eternity in Heaven?
Blind and foolish
And, is this Message coming to pass?
“...Can you not see the path has been made straight? Very few have taken the time to look and understand. All are so involved with their own selfish lives. Very few will recognise the abomination for he will give you all that you desire; he will speak to you in human words; words that you can recognise and feel good about for they are human words that you have desired to hear.
You are a blind and foolish generation. You have brought this upon yourselves. The Triumph of My Heart is not far off now, children. Pray, pray much that the time is shortened for the persecution shall be great...”
Tuesday 5 April 2005
As Jesus said, we are blind, let us die to ourselves in order to see the truth of what is going on.
And is this perhaps what Jesus is talking about in this month’s Message of Tuesday 5 November 2013?
The King of Love
The King of Love, is a vision given to the two Patricks. Jesus said that He wanted the world to see Him as He is. This sad, tortured, yet beautiful image is given to the world to show the Pain of Jesus; the anguish that we put Him through; what He has already done for us and the deep Love that He has for us represented by the Rays of Love that penetrate each one of us from His Most Sacred and Sorrowful Heart.
This image shows just how misunderstood Jesus really is. His Precious Blood and His Sacred Body is being put down the sinks in many churches. This is utter desecration and gives rise to much Pain in Jesus. His own betray Him and all that He has given. There is no worse Pain for Jesus than the Pain that BETRAYAL brings.
With all that is going on in the world today is it any wonder that Jesus would give an image like this?
After this painting was given by the artist to the Patricks to take back to the Sacred Heart House of Prayer, enroute they went to Saint Michael and the Heavenly Hosts House of Prayer and there Jesus gave the following Message:
“...My little ones, this night, I shall be with you as King of Love since you have brought Me here to this House. My Angels prostrated themselves before Me in this sacred image for it is indeed sacred. I will speak of this when I am ready. My image radiates Love. Look into the Eyes of Love and see it. My Blessings of Love upon you all. My Peace be with you...”
Saturday 7 September 1996
Since then, Jesus has given other Messages on this image and even a Chaplet to the King of Love and many have been touched by this image.
“...Look at Me, the King of Love. See My Wounds. I have presented this image for the world to see. Look deeply, children; it is your God...” Sunday 19 January 1997
I took that for Love of you
I first came to the House of Prayer about eleven years ago. One of my sisters took me there because I had been suffering depression for a long time and was very unhappy.
Peace and joy
I started to feel little bits of peace and joy so I kept going. I realise now Jesus could only give me little bits of peace and joy because my soul was in so much darkness I couldn’t have stood anymore and I would have run away from His Light.
There is the most beautiful image in the House of Jesus as King of Love, although I didn’t always see it that way. I saw it at first as the most disgusting, ugly picture I had ever seen. I can’t even emphasize that enough. I couldn’t look at it.
I had been at the House for about a year and a half when one night as I was doing the Gathering Place, my thoughts were all over the place. I couldn’t think straight. I was getting text messages from my ex-partner whom I had lived in sin with for years, hence the darkness of my soul. I still had feelings for him at the time, so my thoughts were going from him then to Jesus. I said to Jesus, “I don’t ever want to hurt You again” but my thoughts kept bombarding me.
When I went to my room that night I sat on the bed, my head still going. On the bedside locker was Message Book One. I lifted it and randomly opened it. I read a line where my eyes fell. It said, “...I have placed you in Me and you cannot return to your former self for I have taken it away...” Friday 26 June 1992
I can’t explain how I felt. That line pierced the very depths of my soul. I knew that was the truth and that was the first time I recognised it. It was powerful.
Felt His Love
As I sat there on the bed I put the Book down and lifted the little Chaplet of the King of Love. I looked at Jesus and again I can’t explain, His Face and everything changed at that second in the image. I saw and felt His Love and Mercy and the beauty of Him. His Eyes were alive. I couldn’t understand at that point. I said, “Jesus, how did I see You so ugly, because You’re so beautiful?” My head just couldn’t understand it.
Reflection of you
Over the years since that time I would have had a fleeting thought in my head and ask Jesus the same question, never having any more thought on it, until about two months ago I was sitting in my kitchen and again had the thought, “Jesus, how did I see You so ugly?” But this time was different. The thought that came into my head was, “Don’t you see, that was a reflection of you but I took that for Love of you.” Again I can’t explain how I felt. That line also pierced my soul. The realisation of what Jesus did for me. I felt sadness for putting so much on Jesus but my heart and soul also felt the gratefulness. I said, “Jesus, I want to praise You through all eternity.”
King of Love
Just think, this great King took it all and I saw for me the ugliness of my sin that this great King took for Love of me and it was really ugly. I have no words to thank Him like He deserves. All I can say is thank You and praise Jesus, King of Love.
Mom who was pressured to abort ‘severely brain-damaged’
baby gives birth to perfectly healthy child
The following article was recently written by Thaddeus Baklinski for LifeSiteNews.com. It tells the rather frightening story of a mother who was advised to abort her ‘severely brain-damaged’ little baby. She and her husband decided to go against doctors’ advice and give their baby a chance. Subsequently, the mother gave birth to a healthy baby girl! This is, quite frankly, a rather scary article to read. It makes me wonder how many other perfectly healthy babies have been aborted because they have been diagnosed as being ‘severely disabled.’
A British couple who refused to follow medical advice that they should abort their child after she was diagnosed with severe brain damage has revealed that doctors made a mistake and their daughter, now two, was born perfectly healthy.
Doctors at Frenchay Hospital in Bristol reportedly told Liane and Iain Stooke that their baby Miley was probably deformed after a scan showed a shadow on their unborn daughter’s brain.
A repeat of the scan, showing the same shadow, led doctors to a diagnosis of holoprosencephaly, a condition in which the front part of the brain of a child in the womb fails to form two hemispheres.
The Stookes said they were initially relieved after the birth but then began to feel angry when they thought about how close they had come to aborting their daughter.
A lot of unknowns
“We were told Miley was probably severely brain damaged and wouldn’t be able to communicate with or recognize us,” the Stookes told the Daily Mail.
“The doctors said she might never walk, talk, or recognize our faces,” the couple, who have two sons aged four and nine, explained. “It was also possible she’d be physically and facially deformed. There were a lot of unknowns.”
Mrs Stooke said the physicians at Frenchay Hospital recommended an abortion, telling the parents that Miley would have no “meaningful quality of life.”
“The doctor said it wasn’t too late if we wanted to abort the baby - he made it sound almost as if there was no other option,” said Mrs Stooke.
The couple agonized over the abortion decision but in the end Mrs Stooke said her mothering instinct led them to decide to give their little girl a chance at life.
Miley was born by caesarean section in October 2011 with no sign of any health problems.
“The midwives were baffled. The doctors ran the standard tests and Miley passed them all with flying colours,” Mrs Stooke said. “Two days later Miley had another MRI scan and we were told she didn’t have holoprosencephaly at all. In fact, she was completely healthy.
“The only explanation is that the original imaging and diagnosis had been completely wrong.”
How close they had come
The Stookes said they were initially relieved after the birth but then began to feel angry when they thought about how close they had come to aborting their daughter.
They subsequently lodged a complaint with the local NHS trust demanding an explanation for the mistakes that had been made.
Our unreserved sympathy
A statement from the medical director of North Bristol NHS Trust, Dr Chris Burton, said, “North Bristol NHS Trust investigated Mr and Mrs Stooke’s concerns thoroughly and provided a full response in February 2012, in which we expressed our unreserved sympathy for the distress they suffered.”
Miley’s just perfect
Mrs Stooke concluded that she is very pleased that her motherly instinct proved doctors wrong. “Miley’s just perfect. I’m just so glad I trusted my mother’s instinct and gave my girl the chance to live.”
These Messages were given by Jesus leading up to Christmastime on previous years. They are good to read again to help us prepare for this season that many times hurts Jesus most. It is His Birthday, let us treat it as such and let His Radiant Love shine from us in these holy days.

Children of the Light, I call you to recognise My Voice. I call you in these days of Advent to turn away from this world and its ways.
I tell you, My children, Christmas is not a time of greed. It should be a time to celebrate My Birth in this world.
In Truth, I tell you, the only thing that is celebrated is the birth of sin in this world. You go out into this world, children, and you spend more money than you have. This is greed. Greed is not My Way, it is the way of lucifer. Too long have I watched My children celebrating this time of My Birth in greed and self; while others go hungry; while you sit at your tables eating meals that you cannot finish; consuming great quantities of alcohol, which brings about the downfall of many.
I say wake-up, children, and realise what you are doing. lucifer dances around you, laughing at how you celebrate My Birth. he taunts Me, jeering and laughing at My people as they go to celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, on the Day of My Birth and all your minds are full of, children, is food, television, alcohol and self. I am nowhere to be seen.
Think, My children, before this Day of Great Holiness, what you are about to do. I Love you.
Tuesday 23 December 2003
My people, I Love you. Once again, we come to the time of My Birth; once again you have forgotten Me in favour of this world. What have I done to offend you, My people? Why have you forgotten Me?
Look around you, children. Where am I in your lives in this the time of My Birth? All you can think of is yourselves and the worldly goods that you can purchase. It is the time of My greatest Suffering; it is the time of greed when all My people indulge in self.
I Love you, My people, and I call you to look and see what you are doing; see the influence of the evil one in your lives as he mocks the time of My Birth through your lack of caring. I say again, I Love you but this Love is not returned. I Love you.
Tuesday 23 December 2003
Patrick:Jesus, are You there? Do You wish to speak?
Yes, My servant, I wish to speak. I wish to speak again of the worldliness that has crept into My House at this time. So much could be done without but it is not done without; it is taken on as a right. What can we do, I hear you say? I wish only to Teach all of you how to come away from the world. Christmas is about Me; it is not about celebrating in the way that you do. If you take a drink of alcohol it is not for Me or My benefit that you take it. It is for your own. How can your Christmas be about Me when I am not in it? How can I be Born into you when your head and heart are full of the worldly things that you need to celebrate your feast day?
I speak these things because it is what My House is full of at this time. This will bring you into the new year in which there will be many signs given and you, even you within My House, will not see them. The new year will be a year of darkness; a year when I will call you, My two sons, away from your excuses and I will call you into the world for many evil places have sprung up because I have been thrown out through the worlds sins. Evil crawls around everywhere and there is no one to stop it.
Many sacrifices are needed, My sons, for the world and in preparation for what must be done. Do not just do the sacrifices that you like to do but also do those that you do not feel like doing; in fact do more of these for these are the kind that are needed.
My Heart would be in joy if I could tell you that all was well with the world but because there are few to battle against the evil in the world, I cannot speak of this. I would wish to speak of the triumph and the joy of what Christmas is but, within your hearts, My sons, you know that I cannot. I tell you solemnly, it will be a time like this, a time of celebration, that I will come. This is a time that you must watch out for because it is the time when your guard is down and the evil one can step in and destroy you.
The country of America will war again and will become so bogged down in showing her might that she will not see her downfall and another small nation will bring her to her knees. This can be stopped if I am on the lips and in the hearts of that nation.
I am alone for not many think of Me. I am no longer the object of desire at this time.
I am sorry that You are alone, Jesus. I give You my heart and my soul in reparation for all the sins committed against You at this time. I love You and I will try to make Christmas Yours again in my life. I am sorry for my part in Your Sorrow.
I thank you, My servant, for your thoughts for Me earlier, I thank you for your giving to Me within your heart. Were it that it were all the world.
Tuesday 21 December 2004
In these Words, My children, I give you My Love. I call you to be obedient in these days of My Birth. If you are within My Houses, then be obedient to all that I have asked of you. If you are in the world, be obedient to My Commandments. Wherever you are, let your commitment to Me be how you love Me and your preparation for My coming.
Even though I am in great loneliness at this time, let your joy in Me be complete. You will find joy in your obedience to Me. Let Me draw you to Myself in this Christmas time. Listen not to the world as it draws you ever closer to itself.
Let Me be Born in you. Let My Light surround you. Let the Light of My Birth be a new time for you to begin again. Let My Words soothe you. Let My Words change you. Let My Words be recognised in you. Let your heart be open to Me. Let your heart be enriched by My Birth so that you might begin to follow Me and to serve Me the way that I have called you to.
I come to you with My Heart in My Hands as a Beggar to beg you to return to Me. I have nothing to give you but My Heart. In it is contained My Love. It is why I came; it is why I still come.
Come, little child, and be born into this Heart of Mine. It is for you. Let Me Touch you, let Me live in you. Reach out to others who do not know Me yet for, if you keep Me to yourself, what good will that do to the others who do not know Me yet?
Monday 11 December 2006
My people, I Love you and I call you into the safety of My Fold. Look around you, My children, and see the Truth of the Words that I have spoken to you. You are caught up in the season of Christmas, it is now a time of self. You do not celebrate the time of My Birth. It is supposed to be a time of goodwill, of remembrance but what have you turned it into? A time of greed, a time of self. I am Dying upon this earth, My children, and it is you who are killing Me. You even push Me out of My own churches in favour of the new age lies that you would rather believe in, in order to excuse your lives of lies within My Body. Remember who I am, children, I am your God and I can see all things. You do not fool Me with what you do and what you say you believe in. Wake up and see the Truth of what you are doing. You are bowing to the lies of lucifer. You are supping at his table and you refuse to see or believe this. You who call yourselves My priests, turn away from the lies of lucifer and come back to My True Path. Reread My Gospels and see the Path that I have put before you for you will account for the souls that you have taken from Me with the lies and profanities that you profess to be My teachings. I am your God. The Words that I have already spoken within My Scriptures stand. They cannot be changed. You use justifications to excuse your interpretations. They have already been interpreted by My Saints and you refuse to believe what I have spoken through the Holy Ones. Your days are numbered. Your truth deceives you. Look only to My Truth for this is your freedom, you blind and foolish generation. I, your God, stand at the door and you are not prepared. Come back to Me, though your sins be as scarlet I shall wash them clean in My Blood. Come to Me and repent and the Kingdom of My Father is yours. I, your Jesus, Love you.
Tuesday 25 December 2007
My children, this is the Day that Love was Born into this world. My Love was given to mankind on this Day and the Gates of My Father’s Kingdom stood at the ready to open. I live My Life for you as a Sacrifice; I Died for you as a Sacrifice so that you could have Eternal Life with Me in My Father’s Kingdom. So few have accepted what I have done, so few are willing to look at the Truth. You cannot see anything but your own lives, whereas I offer you something greater than anything that you can find upon this earth. My children, My children, I say trust in Me, your God, and trust in the Words that I am giving to you. I have fulfilled My Words with Scripture, I came, I Suffered and I Died for your Salvation. What more can a man give than when he gives his lifeblood. I gave All for you, children. Take a little moment of your time and look at what I have done for you. I Love you and I thank you for reading these Words. I, your Jesus, Love you.
Tuesday 9 December 2008
Prepare! Prepare, My children! These Words I do not speak, I shout them to ears that can hear Me. I come in these Words to prepare you. I come like John came, to prepare you for what is to come.
All you who wait for Me, I say to you: you must do more than wait. I give you a Precious Jewel in My Gospels; a Jewel that you must not keep for yourself. No! You must share it with those who do not know.
How much do you prepare for My Coming at Christmas? Have you forgotten the real meaning of Me? Have you forgotten that My Birth is a time of renewal, a renewal of body, mind and spirit? It is time for a love that is meant, a love that is real and true.
Wednesday 24 December 2008
My children, I Love you. Open deeply your hearts to Me for I wish to be Born in you. You are vessels of My Words, you are carriers of the Truth. Your lives must reflect the Truth that I give to you: Truth is Light and Light is Love.
36 Whilst you have the Light, believe in the Light, that you may be the children of Light.
Times are coming, and soon, when they shall try to destroy the Truth in you; in fact, they have begun, when they will try to make you believe that I am not He. If you live in the Light of My Truth you shall be like a fortress that is well defended; you will be like a house that is built, not on sand but on rock. I am your Rock.
They will come to you and they will bear lies on their lips; they will feed you with lies but do not believe it. I Come soon.
Do not step out into the darkness without the Light. Just as the Light guided the Magi to My Birth, let the Light guide you. More than ever now, cling to the Light for the ‘Time of Darkness’ is just around the corner. I Love you, stay with Me.

For Christmas Day
Children of Mine, I Love you. Today, I open My Most Sacred Heart and I give you My Light and My Love in this dark time in this world. It is My Blessing to you on this Christmas. My Heart is open and shines forth its Light like My Birthplace was open to all those who came to visit Me. Each presented Me a gift and each left with the Gift of My Love. My Heart is open wide to you to come and receive My Love. I Love you. Remember Me this Christmas.

Feast of Blessed John Paul II Tuesday 22 October
On this Feast Day, a servant shared how John Paul always promoted the true teaching of the Holy Catholic Church, how he reached out to everyone and of His great love of the young people showing them that God was not boring, bringing God to them, joining with them in many sporting activities even sitting around camp fires and singing with them. He boldly spoke out saying no to changing the Scripture, no to homosexuality, no to feminism, no to changing the celibacy in the priesthood and many other evils. He went on and on in his duty as Pope until his death and still left us a legacy of words to guide us. Jesus said in a Message given on Wednesday 13 April 2005, ‘So also must you take the words of your brother, John Paul, these shall guide you to safety through the darkness.’
Halloween Vigil Thursday 31 October
Every year on Halloween night, we gather in the Prayer Room to spend a few hours with Jesus to keep Him company because of what happens in the world on Halloween night. On this night many spirits are worshipped openly and we wanted to console and comfort Jesus. Our vigil was spent mostly in silence with times of prayer and song.
“...Look at this night, a night of terror, when lucifer and his dominions are celebrated openly in this world. It is a night of spirits, a night of worship when the people, who worship lucifer, come out of their nests and create many acts of darkness. Many sacrifices are given to him on this night but do you care, children? You go out into your streets and celebrate this night, as if it were any other night. You are blind, you can no longer see the Ways of My Spirit. My Love is dead within your lives. Alas, My children, My Pain is great when I look at you...” Thursday 31 October 2002
Saint Cecilia Sunday 17 November
We celebrated this Feast Day by gathering in the Prayer Room singing worship songs to Jesus as Saint Cecilia would have done as she is the Patron Saint of Music.
Our singing followed the format of our Wednesday night Prayer Meeting which has proved very popular. Patrick led the singing and the Presence of Jesus was tangible.
Afterwards Patrick gave a talk in the conference room and people shared about their experiences in the Prayer Room. One of the servants shared on being very aware of the Love of Jesus from the Cross throughout the singing.
Saint Michael House
The word of the LordRejecting the Truth
Jesus has told us in the Messages of Love about how a whole generation has grown up without knowing Him. He also has told us that Scripture is being changed and many people now are rejecting the Truth of the Bible.
Saint Paul tells us in 1 Timothy 4:1-2
1 Now the Spirit manifestly saith, that in the last times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to spirits of error and doctrines of devils,
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy and having their conscience seared.
And in his second letter to Timothy he also writes about these times:
12 And all that will live godly in Christ Jesus, shall suffer persecution.
13 But evil men and seducers shall grow worse and worse: erring and driving into error.
14 But continue thou in those things which thou hast learned and which have been committed to thee: knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
15 And because from thy infancy thou hast known the holy scriptures, which can instruct thee to salvation, by the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All scripture, inspired of God, is profitable to teach, to reprove, to correct, to instruct in justice,
17 That the man of God may be perfect, furnished to every good work.
2 Timothy 3:12-17, Douay Rheims
It seems that the destructive influence of the evil one begins at a very early age in what is being taught to our children. I was shocked when I read in my child’s First Holy Communion workbook, part of the Bible story of the Baptism of Jesus in the river Jordan. It is written like this:
He stepped into the river and John poured water over Him and said the prayer. Jesus went right down under the water. As He came out of the river, He looked up. A strong wind was blowing. It made the clouds move and He could hear the wheat in the fields rustling. Jesus felt that the Holy Spirit was present. He knew God was pleased with Him.
Couldn’t believe it
I couldn’t believe it! This was not the story I grew up to know. So I went to our childrens Catholic Bible to read the story and compare and this is what the same part said:
Then John baptised Jesus in the Jordan, as he had baptised others. And as Jesus came up out of the water and was praying, John saw above the Head of Jesus the heavens opening and the Holy Spirit coming down like a dove and resting upon Him. And John heard a voice from heaven saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
It seems like the children have been given a very watered down version of Jesus’ Baptism and the Power of God has been taken out of it. Why is there any reason to change this story? You would think that children would be more captivated and in awe at the Power of God in the true reading but in the other one there is nothing exciting about it and His Power has been explained away in rational thinking.
Adam and Eve didn’t exist
As part of the programme, a guest speaker came and did a talk on Baptism for the parents as the children had been learning about the Sacraments. I was unable to attend but this was the report afterwards from some of those who attended. They reported that the speaker basically reduced the Old Testament to a legend. He said that Adam and Eve didn’t exist and he didn’t believe in original sin! Now many parents would be of that generation Jesus spoke about that haven’t learned the Truth.
What sort of influence would this man have on them and subsequently on their children? What need would there be for Baptism if original sin did not exist and what need would there have been for God to send Jesus to this world to Suffer and Die for us so that we could go to Heaven? My question is what on earth was he doing giving a talk on Baptism when there seems, by his point of view, no need for it?
Evidence in the Bible
There is plenty of evidence in the Bible, the New Testament as well as Old, that Adam and Eve did exist. If we are to believe that the Bible is the Word of God. e.g. Adam is mentioned in Saint Paul’s letter to the Romans 5:12-19 and 1 Corinthians 15:21-22,
21 For by a man came death and by a man the resurrection of the dead.
22 And as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all shall be made alive. Douay-Rheims
In Saint Luke’s Gospel 3:23 -38, Saint Luke describes Jesus’ Ancestry all the way up to Adam finishing with the line: ‘Who was of Henos, who was of Seth, who was of Adam who was of God.’ (Douay Rheims)
This is only a small example of what is being taught in schools and preached in churches. In the ‘Way of Truth’ Messages on 1 April 2011 Jesus said:
...So many of My Words are being changed by those deceivers who say that they follow Me but, yet, they are followers of the lies of lucifer. They destroy My Truth within the hearts of My children so I am forced to speak these Words to counteract their lies.
My Scripture is Truth and it cannot be changed. They say that My Disciples did not write My Gospels. I tell you, they did and they were handed down to each generation until finally they were brought together and placed within a book which you know as the Bible. These Words were given by My Spirit to My Church and now, those who call themselves doctors, theologians and scholars, tear My Truth apart in their false wisdom. They set out to disprove the books of Scripture and cannot see that they are being deceived by the lies of lucifer. They say that My son, Adam, and My daughter, Eve, did not exist. I tell you, they did for they were the first of My children.
Do not listen to these liars for their father is the father of lies and they will deceive you if you allow them. This is why I say, stay away from those who preach false truths from My altars for, if you listen to them, the self within you will take on these Words and you, too, shall walk away from Me. Go and seek out the churches where My true priests reside so that you do not become tainted with the lies of lucifer. I tell you, My children, do not listen to anyone who preaches untruth in My Name for you only put your eternal lives in great danger...
It seems that in these times man is too intelligent to believe in God and His Words and everything has to have a rational explanation. But Jesus said in Scripture 25 ...O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent and hast revealed them to the little ones. Matthew 11:25, Douay-Rheims
On 23 September 2002, Patrick spoke with Jesus about the changes in Scripture that have taken place and those who are responsible. Jesus said:
...These learned and wise that you speak of, have travelled the path of darkness so far that they can no longer see the Truth of My Scriptures. My Scriptures have become but documents that need to be analysed. They are but pieces of parchment from history that, they find, tells a mixed story of what might have been or, may not.
Intelligence is a Gift, given by Me for the good of My people but it can also be used against Me.
...The Words of My Scripture are Spirit and cannot be understood through human thinking. Those who believe that they have discovered the Truth, are blind and foolish children. They no longer see the True Path. They only see themselves and their intelligence. This is fuelled by the evil one and his inspirations. They listen to him, as he leads them on a path of blindness that leads them further and further away from Me. In so doing, leads many of My children into confusion. They no longer know what to believe in...
I think we all have to be vigilant in these times and open our eyes and ears to what has been going on. As Jesus says in the Messages, it is now time to stand up for the Truth or we are in danger of being swept away by the lies of lucifer at the detriment to our eternal souls.
The Holy Scriptures
1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as most dear children
2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us and hath delivered Himself for us, an oblation and a sacrifice to God for an odour of sweetness.
Jesus tells us in the Gospels to live as He Lived and to follow His example. We are called to live in love, to love as Jesus has Loved us. Through Jesus’ Sacrifice all our sin and darkness is atoned for and Jesus’ Offering rises as a sweet Offering to God the Father.
3 But fornication and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not so much as be named among you, as becometh saints:
4 Or obscenity, or foolish talking, or scurrility, which is to no purpose but rather giving of thanks.
5 For know you this and understand, that no fornicator, or unclean, or covetous person (which is a serving of idols), hath inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
Now that we have found Jesus and have converted and repented we should live a life totally in God. A holy life worthy of the Kingdom of God. We should use our tongues only to do good and to give praise to God.
6 Let no man deceive you with vain words. For because of these things cometh the anger of God upon the children of unbelief.
7 Be ye not therefore partakers with them.
8 For you were heretofore darkness but now light in the Lord. Walk then as children of the light.
9 For the fruit of the light is in all goodness and justice and truth;
10 Proving what is well pleasing to God:
We have to be prudent and not be deceived by the words of others who do not know or speak the Truth. Now that Jesus has called us into His Light we must listen and obey Him, lest His Anger will fall on us also. The Fruits of Jesus are Goodness, Justice and Truth and they must be reflected in us.
11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness but rather reprove them.
12 For the things that are done by them in secret, it is a shame even to speak of.
13 But all things that are reproved, are made manifest by the light for all that is made manifest is light.
14 Wherefore He saith: Rise thou that sleepest and arise from the dead and Christ shall enlighten thee.
15 See therefore, brethren, how you walk circumspectly: not as unwise,
To be in fellowship is to be part of, or agree with. We should not be in fellowship or condone any works of darkness, or untruth, anything that goes against what Jesus has Taught us. When darkness is reproved or corrected, Jesus can change this into Light and He is made manifest through this.
16 But as wise: redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17 Wherefore become not unwise but understanding what is the will of God.
18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is luxury but be ye filled with the Holy Spirit,
19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual canticles, singing and making melody in your hearts to the Lord;
20 Giving thanks always for all things, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God and the Father:
We must live each day with Jesus, giving each moment to Jesus, always doing the Will of God, doing nothing to diminish Gods Holy Spirit within us. Our hearts and minds should be always on spiritual things and not on the things of the world. Giving thanks for all things within our lives, even in difficult times.
The plight of forgotten souls
Pray for the holy souls
Since I was a child, I was always taught that we must always pray for the holy souls, those souls who did not die in the state of Grace and were in purgatory. Especially in the month of November as it is dedicated to praying for them.
We were taught lots of little prayers and we used to visit the graveyards and pray and go on little visits in the chapel and pray and do little sacrifices like giving up sugar in our tea etc and offering it up for the holy souls.
Find little prayers
I remember on the visits to the chapel there would be lots of people there and you would find little prayers left on the seats for people to take or people would stop you and give you a little prayer.
Practice is dying out
Sadly, over the years I have noticed that this practice is dying out and I rarely hear anyone talking about the holy souls or going to visit graveyards to pray or do sacrifice. I find this very sad as someday I will die, we will all die and may need someone to pray for us.
Very dark times
Also in these times so few believe in the need for Confessions and many are not prepared for death. We are living in very dark times and we should always try and promote this beautiful practice to keep it alive and not let it die.
Intercede for us
I include here the ‘Rosary for the Holy Souls’ and remember, when the souls are released and go to Heaven, they can do so much for us. We can pray to them to intercede for us in our troubles and help us on our journey through life.
Jesus, Mary, I love You, save souls.
Rosary for the Holy Souls
Begin with the Creed
On the large beads (Our Father beads) say:
“Oh, Holy Souls, draw the fire of Gods Love into my soul, to reveal Jesus Crucified in me here on earth, rather than hereafter in purgatory.”
On the small beads (Hail Mary Beads) say:
“Crucified Lord Jesus, have Mercy on the souls in purgatory.”
At the end, in place of the Hail Holy Queen, say three times:
“Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.”
“Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with all the Masses said throughout the world today for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal Church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.”
Prayer of Saint Gertrude given to her by Our Lord.
The wisdom of John Paul II
On the Christian Family in the Modern World
Apostolic Exhortation of His Holiness, Pope John Paul II
37. Even amid the difficulties of the work of education, difficulties which are often greater today, parents must trustingly and courageously train their children in the essential values of human life. Children must grow up with a correct attitude of freedom with regard to material goods, by adopting a simple and austere lifestyle and being fully convinced that “man is more precious for what he is than for what he has.”
In a society shaken and split by tensions and conflicts caused by the violent clash of various kinds of individualism and selfishness, children must be enriched not only with a sense of true justice, which alone leads to respect for the personal dignity of each individual, but also and more powerfully by a sense of true love, understood as sincere solicitude and disinterested service with regard to others, especially the poorest and those in most need. The family is the first and fundamental school of social living: As a community of love, it finds in self-giving the law that guides it and makes it grow. The self-giving that inspires the love of husband and wife for each other is the model and norm for the selfgiving that must be practiced in the relationships between brothers and sisters and the different generations living together in the family. And the communion and sharing that are part of everyday life in the home at times of joy and at times of difficulty are the most concrete and effective pedagogy for the active, responsible and fruitful inclusion of the children in the wider horizon of society.
Education in love as self-giving is also the indispensable premise for parents called to give their children a clear and delicate sex education. Faced with a culture that largely reduces human sexuality to the level of something commonplace, since it interprets and lives it in a reductive and impoverished way by linking it solely with the body and with selfish pleasure, the educational service of parents must aim firmly at a training in the area of sex that is truly and fully personal: for sexuality is an enrichment of the whole person - body, emotions and soul - and it manifests its inmost meaning in leading the person to the gift of self in love.
Sex education, which is a basic right and duty of parents, must always be carried out under their attentive guidance whether at home or in educational centers chosen and controlled by them. In this regard, the church reaffirms the law of subsidiarity, which the school is bound to observe when it cooperates in sex education, by entering into the same spirit that animates the parents.
In this context education for chastity is absolutely essential, for it is a virtue that develops a person’s authentic maturity and makes him or her capable of respecting and fostering the “nuptial meaning” of the body. Indeed Christian parents, discerning the signs of God’s call, will devote special attention and care to education in virginity or celibacy as the supreme form of that self-giving that constitutes the very meaning of human sexuality.
In view of the close links between the sexual dimension of the person and his or her ethical values, education must bring the children to a knowledge of and respect for the moral norms as the necessary and highly valuable guarantee for responsible personal growth in human sexuality.
For this reason the church is firmly opposed to an often widespread form of imparting sex information dissociated from moral principles. That would merely be an introduction to the experience of pleasure and a stimulus leading to the loss of serenity - while still in the years of innocence - by opening the way to vice.
38. For Christian parents the mission to educate, a mission rooted as we have said in their participation in God’s creating activity, has a new specific source in the sacrament of marriage, which consecrates them for the strictly Christian education of their children: that is to say, it calls upon them to share in the very authority and love of God the Father and Christ the shepherd, and in the motherly love of the church, and it enriches them with wisdom, counsel, fortitude and all the other gifts of the Holy Spirit in order to help the children in their growth as human beings and as Christians.
The sacrament of marriage gives to the educational role the dignity and vocation of being really and truly a “ministry” of the church at the service of the building up of her members. So great and splendid is the educational ministry of Christian parents that Saint Thomas has no hesitation in comparing it with the ministry of priests: “Some only propagate and guard spiritual life by a spiritual ministry: This is the role of the sacrament of orders, others do this for both corporal and spiritual life, and this is brought about by the sacrament of marriage, by which a man and a woman join in order to beget offspring and bring them up to worship God.”
A vivid and attentive awareness of the mission that they have received with the sacrament of marriage will help Christian parents to place themselves at the service of their children’s education with great serenity and trustfulness, and also with a sense of responsibility before God, who calls them and gives them the mission of building up the church in their children. Thus in the case of baptized people, the family, called together by word and sacrament as the church of the home, is both teacher and mother, the same as the worldwide church.
