That One Hour…

That great homily of our priest on Maundy Thursday has never escaped my mind. There was so much depth and how I wished I recorded it.  I saw there was a link to a message in the Book of Truth and the role we play (that in a minute).

‘The hour has come’ denoting something ominous was soon to happen.  That hour where Judas was to betray Jesus that Thursday night, the night before His Crucifixion.

As the evening began, after Jesus and His disciples had celebrated the Passover, they came to the garden. At some point, Jesus took three of them—Peter, James and John— to a place separated from the rest.  He asked them to stay with Him. “My soul is deeply grieved, to the point of death; remain here and keep watch with Me” (Matthew 26:38). He then went a little farther, fell to His face, and, in agony, asked God to find another way. His sweat fell like drops of blood; God sent an angel to comfort Him. We cannot know the depths of Jesus’ sorrow at this time. While Jesus wept in anguish, Peter, James, and John fell asleep. Jesus returned to the three and woke them up. “So, you men could not keep watch with Me for one hour? Keep watching and praying, that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak” (Matthew 26:40-41). But perhaps filled with good food and wearied from an emotional night the disciples fell asleep again. This was especially poignant because Peter did indeed fall into temptation later that very night when three times he denied even knowing Jesus.

Two things I would like to point out here:

  • The Hour – to mean something horrible was to happen, Jesus asked His three close disciples to spend an hour that they may not enter into temptation.  To spend an hour in prayer is to fortify us. It is also to avert or mitigate evil or destruction. That is why we spend an hour in Eucharistic Adoration.  This reminds me of a press release in 2017 where an increase in Adoration chapels in Mexico are reportedly leading to a stunning decline in crime rates.

In the Book of Truth, message 1213 , Jesus says “Spend at least one hour a day in prayer so that the impact of such trials may be reduced and, in some cases, eradicated.”   Message 892 “those of you who pray My Crusade Prayers diligently, know that I bring relief to the world from the snares of the devil.  The old serpent falls and stumbles losing much power when you strive to say My Crusade Prayers, daily. And while the times of great trials continue, your prayers will create many setbacks in the plans created by Masonic powers in the world, which are designed to create havoc in order to control the weak and vulnerable. Just one Crusade Prayer, said from the heart, is enough for Me to destroy the power of arrogant political leaders, who do not have a conscience.”

  • The second point I would like to draw your attention to is the angel who provides comfort to Jesus as he agonises and sweats blood (caused by extreme anguish that pores burst). angel consoling Jesus

The 19th Century nun and mystic Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich describes Jesus’ grief in harrowing detail in the book The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ. In her visions we see Jesus overwhelmed by visions of humanity’s sins (2,000+ years worth of sins and all kinds of it till the end), as well by as the ingratitude of so many of those for whom He would be crucified!   According to Sister Emmerich “angels presented to him all the bands of saints of future ages, who, joining their labors to the merits of his Passion, were, through him, to be united to his Heavenly Father. Most beautiful and consoling was this vision, in which he beheld the salvation and sanctification flowing forth in ceaseless streams from the fountain of redemption opened by his death… The army of the future saints passed before the soul of our Lord… This most affecting and consoling spectacle bestowed a degree of strength and comfort upon the soul of Jesus.”

I surely would like to believe that the ‘army of future saints’ not only included the past saints, martyrs, popes and other holy people but also include all the faithful and the Remnant Army in the end times that brought consolation to Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane.

We are an Easter people, we fight, we hope and we pray.  Happy Easter!

God bless.

 

 

 

What the Divine Mercy Prayer and Crusade Prayers have in common

On September 13, 1935, Sister Faustina wrote: I saw an Angel who was the executor of God’s wrath…

Her own prayers were without power to hold back a terrible punishment, until the Holy Trinity was suddenly manifested to her.  I began to pray earnestly to God for the world with words heard internally:

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world. For the sake of His sorrowful passion have mercy on us and on the whole world.

As Sister kept repeating the inspired prayer the Angel became powerless to carry out the ordained punishment.

The next day, as she was entering the chapel, Sister Faustina received instructions from the voice within her regarding the manner in which she was to recite the prayer she heard.

This is what we now know as The Chaplet of Divine Mercy,  one of the most powerful devotions we have given to this generation by Jesus, that whoever will recite it will receive great mercy at the hour of death…..Priests will recommend it to sinners as a last hope of salvation.  In the Book of Truth Jesus stresses many times the importance of this prayer in saving souls JTM_msg_excerpts-DMC .

The Crusade Prayers are equally as powerful as these prayers come directly from God CP imagethe Most High, from Jesus and the Blessed Mother, dictated to the end time prophet, Maria Divine Mercy, for a specific purpose – to save souls!  No human words or prayer composed by mere mortals like us could defeat evil.  God knew that to win this battle requires heavenly prayers. The only other ingredient required is a mouthpiece of a committed soul.  Sister Faustina’s own prayers were not powerful enough either but when she started reciting the words she heard internally the Angel became powerless to carry out the ordained punishment.

What a great gift we have in our hands, the humble Crusade Prayer book.

A Happy & Prosperous New Year!

Just a little late but I hope everyone had a Blessed Christmas. We are now in 2018 and I pray that you have a prosperous new year!

Just on the note of wishing everyone a Happy and Prosperous New Year we normally would think of joy, happiness, abundance, wealth, good health, good job, good business, etc. While that is not a bad thing we should try, as children of God, shift our way of thinking of the meaning of the word prosperity. Prosperity to mean to prosper in Virtue, to prosper in Grace, to prosper in God’s gifts to us.

Most commonly we say Happy New Year and to wish no difficulties, no sufferings, no hardship may befall on anyone but loads of joy and happiness. However, this is not true happiness. True happiness is growing in the virtue with the Grace of God, growing in goodness, in the gifts and the fruits of the Holy Spirit. And even though your heart is distressed for whatever reason it may be (either it be death, illness, loss of a job or any misfortune) you remain calm, peaceful and collected. It is the Grace of God that makes you feel the calmness and the peacefulness of your soul, not agitated.

The Grace of God is a gift but it is also hard to obtain. We need to ask for it and to pray to the Holy Spirit for the gifts, the virtues and the fruits.

The first Saturday of the year is special to me. Saturdays in general are special as it is our Blessed Mother’s day. We have, for example, the First Five Saturday Devotion.

But as a Jesus to Mankind Crusade Army member we have been given by the Blessed Trinity and by the Blessed Mother the Crusade Prayers so rich and abundant of prayers for the graces we need – it is ours for the picking!  And our Blessed Mother, being the treasure and dispenser of Graces,  it is just fitting that on this first Saturday of the year we pray the Crusade Prayers For Graces, Gifts and Protection which we need to continually persevere and remain faithful to the Mission of Salvation – who knows what the year would bring!  And we continually do so for the rest of the year and years to come until we join and meet each other in the New Paradise.

But in the meantime, may you have a happy and prosperous New Year!

Planet of the Apes?

google page

I had to capture this image displayed by Google today and it brought back memories of a movie I watched back in the late 70’s (a rerun of the 1968 film – Planet of the Apes). As a young teenager I must confess I really enjoyed it.  At a young age, it also led me to question how we were created and did we really evolve from the Apes?  With so much ‘scientific evidence’ to prove that we do it is easy for any person without faith, without any belief in God to get lost, confused and deceived.

In the message of June 21, 2012, Jesus confirms that man did not evolve from animals.

I would end this short note to say that the only thing I have in common with the apes is the love of bananas!

When prayers are needed the most

evilacts

“You must never be complacent when evil acts and deeds, including wars and unrest, erupt in the world. It is then that your prayers are needed the most.”

Satan craves souls, his appetite is voracious and his will relentless.

September 4, 2014 @ 11:03pm

My dearly beloved daughter, all of the prophecies foretold so very long ago, and given to God’s prophets, seers and visionaries, through public as well as private revelations, will now unfold.

The skeptic man will question the authenticity of the Word of God but when he witnesses all that was foretold in the Book of Revelation, he will become silent, because, when these events grip mankind, the only solace he will find is if he seeks Me out. When your heart is full of sorrow, because of the evil acts which are carried out by wicked men against God’s children, you will weep tears of anguish. Then you will see how far evil can spread within the souls of those whose hearts are made of stone. When you see how little regard and respect these enemies of God have for human life, you will finally understand how much power the evil one exerts over humanity. In his final hours, Satan who manifests himself in the souls he fills with his putrid ways, will show the world just how  intense his hatred is for the human race.

For every excuse given by man to justify evil, the perpetrators of wicked acts will expose the hatred they have within their hearts for God’s children. They will carry out evil atrocities in the Name of God and they will have no love in their souls. They breed hatred and most of them do not understand why their hatred for others is so intense. While many people do not believe in the existence of the evil one, you must know now that he is unable to resist revealing himself through those he infests. His vapor spreads until it devours every nation, every weak soul, and powerful leaders, whose love of ambition will render them open to his influence.

You will soon see evil acts taking place in every part of your society, in many nations and in different ways. Satan craves souls, his appetite is voracious and his will relentless. When his hatred is truly manifested within souls, these people will be unable to hide their actions.  Only in these situations can many of you really see the evil one for what he really is and that is through the actions of such poor souls who have subjugated themselves to his will.

You must never be complacent when evil acts and deeds, including wars and unrest, erupt in the world. It is then that your prayers are needed the most.

Your Jesus
