The Fourth Sunday of Advent - Christmas Eve - The Lord will come

Luke 1 v 26-38

The Birth of Jesus Foretold

26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favoured! The Lord is with you.”
29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be.30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favour with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus.32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David,33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”
34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”
35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. 36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. 37 For no word from God will ever fail.”
38 “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.

Keep Jesus close to your hearts

Notes from meeting on 19 December 2017

Picture of the Nativity and St. Joseph beckoned us all to gather around the Baby Jesus. Jesus was inconsolable, crying tears of sorrow for those who don't love Him, ignore Him or are cold to Him.
Our Blessed Mother asked each of us in turn to pick Him up and hold Him to our hearts.
His crying stopped immediately everyone had held Him.
Our Blessed Mother placed Him back in the manger and next to His little lips Jesus was kissing a crown; upon it was written 'Theotokos'.
Our Blessed Mother says:
" My children keep my Son Jesus close to your hearts for you console His little tears, your prayers and loyalty comfort Him in an increasingly secular world.
I say to you that as you bear Him in your arms and hearts you will grow in Holiness and make reparation for those who do not do so.
Shine like the Children of God you have become that others will be drawn to the Light of my Son within you. This light will draw many out of darkness and into Peace.
My children even though you sometimes sin ask always for my Son's forgiveness and His Light will shine all the stronger for my Son knows your struggles and His Love will help you conquer all adversity in your lives, in your families and in time your World.
Mary, Mother of Jesus

Jesus Light of the World

Notes of meeting on 12 December 2017

Picture of Our Blessed Mother she seemed to be enwrapped by the Light of God.
The Light shone down upon her from Heaven but was met by the light emanating from within her.
Our Mother seemed to be having a conversation with the Holy Spirit, the more she spoke, and this was silently from her heart, the brighter and stronger the Light became.
Her very chasteness, holiness, littleness, humbleness and her maternal love shone through her casting the Light upon her children.

Our Blessed Mother says:
"My little ones, you feel that darkness and gloom are all around you and yes this is true but look at the real reality which is Heaven, this Heaven can be reality within you at all times if you carry Jesus my Son in your hearts as I now carry Him in my womb.
You can feel the Light, the Love and the Peace emanating from within me, Jesus.
Jesus is the Peace Child, he is a gift to you from the Holy Spirit so when things look dark remember you have within you the Light of Heaven as I have Jesus within me.
Yes this is possible just believe and you will instantly feel at peace. I have asked this gift for you, accept it, and feel real joy at the celebration of the birth of my Son when He comes to greet you all.
My maternal love is always with you.

Isaiah 54 v9-17
‘To me this is like the days of Noah,
    when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth.
So now I have sworn not to be angry with you,
    never to rebuke you again.
10 Though the mountains be shaken
    and the hills be removed,
yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken
    nor my covenant of peace be removed,’
says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
11 ‘Afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted,
    I will rebuild you with stones of turquoise,
    your foundations with lapis lazuli.
12 I will make your battlements of rubies,
    your gates of sparkling jewels,
    and all your walls of precious stones.
13 All your children will be taught by the Lord,
    and great will be their peace.
14 In righteousness you will be established:
tyranny will be far from you;

    you will have nothing to fear.
Terror will be far removed;
    it will not come near you.
15 If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing;
    whoever attacks you will surrender to you.
16 ‘See, it is I who created the blacksmith
    who fans the coals into flame
    and forges a weapon fit for its work.
And it is I who have created the destroyer to wreak havoc;
17     no weapon forged against you will prevail,
    and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
    and this is their vindication from me,’
declares the Lord.

St Joseph foster Father of Jesus pray for us

Notes of meeting on 5 December 2017

Picture of Our Blessed Mother with St Joseph, she was pregnant, in the distance could bee seen the Cross that would become the means of Sacrifice and further on in the distance was a patch of Glorious Light and Joy symbolising the Resurrection.

Our Blessed Mother says:
" My children in this time of Holy Advent I wish to bring before you my Holy and chaste spouse St. Joseph.
This man, this holy man, who had these attributes even before Jesus was born became even more Holy, more Faithful to God and our Son after Jesus was born.
He loved, nurtured and was enraptured by Him and just as those gifts that God gave him were used in my Son's early years he remained blessed and his gifts magnified throughout his life.
This Advent be like Joseph keep my Son Jesus close to you, nurture Him in your heart, watch over Him with filial love and those gifts which God has given you personally and collectively as a group will be magnified and made greater for the Glory of God. These gifts will draw you closer to my Son in the coming year when Calvary approaches and great sorrow is felt but always remember Jesus rose again and your heart will rose to greet Him when finally the breaking dawn on Easter Day greets you.
My Children my motherly heart feels such tenderness for you, I thank you for your loyalty to my Son Jesus.
Mary your Mother."

Springs of water

Notes of meeting on 28 November 2017

Psalm 114

When Israel came out of Egypt,
    Jacob from a people of foreign tongue,
Judah became God’s sanctuary,
    Israel his dominion.
The sea looked and fled,
    the Jordan turned back;
the mountains leaped like rams,
    the hills like lambs.
Why was it, sea, that you fled?
    Why, Jordan, did you turn back?
Why, mountains, did you leap like rams,
    you hills, like lambs?
Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord,
    at the presence of the God of Jacob,
who turned the rock into a pool,
    the hard rock into springs of water.
Ecclesiasticus / Sirach 3 v 1-9
1 My child, do not refuse the poor a livelihood, do not tantalise the needy.
2 Do not add to the sufferings of the hungry, do not bait anyone in distress.
3 Do not aggravate a heart already angry, nor keep the destitute waiting for your alms.
4 Do not repulse a hard-pressed beggar, nor turn your face from the poor.
5 Do not avert your eyes from the needy, give no one occasion to curse you;
6 for if someone curses you in distress, his Maker will give ear to the imprecation.
7 Gain the love of the community, in the presence of the great bow your head.
8 To the poor lend an ear, and courteously return the greeting.
9 Save the oppressed from the hand of the oppressor, and do not be mean-spirited in your judgements.
Lord we thank you that you are a mighty God and yet you stoop down to meet us and change our stony hearts to hearts from which your springs of living water flow.
Help us to be generous the poor those who are poor spiritually and physically as you have been generous to us with your gifts of mercy and love

The power of prayer

Notes of meeting on 21 November 2017

Picture of Jesus resplendent in light.
The whole celestial court were with Him and Or Blessed Mother was kneeling at His side.
A group of Priests came to Him, He greeted them individually and their hearts seemed to be enwrapped by His Heart.
Some hearts were full of light others a little less but all received graces and strength.
Next came a group of ordinary people who really loved Jesus but seemed tired and worn out they were extremely sorry for having at sometime in the past to have let Jesus down. They were weeping and covering His feet with kisses so grateful that He had forgiven them and worked in them.
Jesus was weeping for love of them and their hearts were strengthened with vigour and full of light.
Lastly there seemed a group of bystanders or onlookers they didn't care or appear to care one way or the other about receiving Jesus' blessing. Their hearts were dull, cold and covered in stone.
Our Blessed Mother wept and prayed for them together with those in the celestial court and all in the first and second groups. After praying and praising Jesus' Heart touched those cold hearts of stone and cracks appeared and instead of being indifferent they turned toward Jesus.
Our Blessed Mothers tears seemed to enter the cracks causing great fissures until finally all the stone was removed. The love of Christ started to penetrate their hearts and caused them to beg Jesus for His forgiveness and to lift the oppression against them giving them total freedom to love Him.
Jesus took them to Himself in His arms and they were freed.
The whole company of praying people and the heavenly court erupted in joy and praise.

Our Blessed Mother says;
"My children this is the power of prayer. My children when you feel nothing is going well, pray, pray, pray for that is the very time when the adversary will flee.
Look always to the Heart of my Son Jesus, praying in the will of the Father.
I keep you in my maternal heart.

2 Corinthians 8 v7-15
But since you excel in everything – in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you – see that you also excel in this grace of giving.
I am not commanding you, but I want to test the sincerity of your love by comparing it with the earnestness of others. For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.
10 And here is my judgment about what is best for you in this matter. Last year you were the first not only to give but also to have the desire to do so. 11 Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it, according to your means. 12 For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what one does not have.
13 Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. 14 At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. The goal is equality, 15 as it is written: ‘The one who gathered much did not have too much, and the one who gathered little did not have too little.’

We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord. Amen.

Fixing our eyes on Jesus

Notes of meeting 14 November 2017

Hebrews 12 v 1-11
 1Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy that was set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says,
‘My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline,
    and do not lose heart when he rebukes you,
because the Lord disciplines the one he loves,
    and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.’
Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined – and everyone undergoes discipline – then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! 10 They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. 11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
Luke 4 v16-21
16 He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read, 17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:
18 ‘The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
    because he has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
    and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
19     to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.’
20 Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 He began by saying to them, ‘Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.’

do not forget your priests

Notes of Meeting on 7 November 2017

Picture of Our Blessed Mother with an inconsolable Baby Jesus. Our Mother tried to soothe Him saying "I will get Prayers for You."

A priest could be seen he was covered in blood, he had been tortured, stripped and whipped with no mercy shown him. He was in terrible pain but kept visualising his Saviour on the Cross, he could see the Blood of Jesus pour forth and surround him and his abusers. He could hear voices praying and it seemed the voices were from heaven and also people praying from the earth , Christians praying for him.
The mingling of Christ's Blood and the prayers seemed to cover him like a beautiful woven cloak, then the pain seemed to dissipate and all but disappear.

The Baby Jesus ceased crying.

Mary says:
"My children , my dear children, see the beautiful covering garment of prayer and grace that with my Son Jesus' Most Precious Blood you have helped to provide for priests in their martyrdom. This martyrdom for the Faith which is your Faith also.
Some priests spend their lives quietly going about the Lord's business and suffer interiorly others pay willingly with their blood imitating my Son Jesus.
When you pray for yourselves, your families, the lost do not forget your priests they are precious in my Son's eyes, everyone of them.
If you find difficulty with one of my Sons chosen ones pray hard for him for you know nothing of his spiritual life. Your priests are being attacked as never before cover them with the beautiful garment of prayer from your heart.
My sons are in need of your love.
Pray for them my little ones.
Prayer overcomes all darkness, prayer enlightens the mind and soul, prayer produces miracles.
Nothing is impossible with prayer
My Baby Son lifts His hand in Blessing upon you.

1 Peter 5 v 1 -11
To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder and a witness of Christ’s sufferings who also will share in the glory to be revealed: be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them – not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.
In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility towards one another, because,
‘God opposes the proud
    but shows favour to the humble.’
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.

Mark 4 v 35-41
35 That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, ‘Let us go over to the other side.’ 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, ‘Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?’
39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, ‘Quiet! Be still!’ Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.
40 He said to his disciples, ‘Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?’
41 They were terrified and asked each other, ‘Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!’

Notes of meeting on 31 October 2017

Picture of Our Blessed Mother in prayer.
Jesus was sifting the deeds of a person to weigh the good things.
As Jesus carried on sifting Our Mother prayed and pleaded "My dear Son do you see the tears and prayers of this child's earthly parents, all the hopes and blessings they prayed for".
The sift revealed no gold nuggets of good things but a few grains only of gold.
"Dear Son do you see the tears and prayers of this child's Heavenly Mother , Your Mother."
The sift now contained a crown of thorns and nail's from Jesus' Cross.
"Thank you dear Son that You in Your great Mercy have seen to forgive this child of ours and replace his omissions and sin with Your Holy Righteousness and Mercy."

Our Blessed Mother says;
"My children pray for your families, for the lost, for nothing is impossible to God through the merits of my Son Jesus' Calvary. His death is your life, His pain is your forgiveness, His Resurrection is your gift of life.
Pray earnestly now for the battle over my children's souls, all is not lost. The adversary thinks he is winning but prayer will break these bonds.
Pray my little one, my beloved children, your Mother is relying on your help, for you are my family, THE FAMILY OF GOD.
I bless you in the Name of Jesus my Son.

Revelation15 v 2-4
And I saw what looked like a sea of glass glowing with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and its image and over the number of its name. They held harps given them by God and sang the song of God’s servant Moses and of the Lamb:
‘Great and marvellous are your deeds,
    Lord God Almighty.
Just and true are your ways,
    King of the nations.
Who will not fear you, Lord,
    and bring glory to your name?
For you alone are holy.
All nations will come
    and worship before you,
for your righteous acts have been revealed.’

1 Thessalonians 5 v 1-1
Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, ‘Peace and safety’, destruction will come on them suddenly, as labour pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. 10 He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. 11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

November Prayer Intention 2017

November Prayer Intention 2017
Prayer for the Holy Souls in Purgatory
O Lord, who are ever merciful and bounteous with Your gifts, look down upon the suffering souls in purgatory. Remember not their offences and negligences, but be mindful of Your loving mercy, which is from all eternity. Cleanse them of their sins and fulfill their ardent desires that they may be made worthy to behold You face to face in Your glory. May they soon be united with You and hear those blessed words which will call them to their heavenly home: "Come, blessed of My Father, take possession of the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world."
Prayer for All the Deceased

May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Can you pray?

Notes of meeting on 17 October 2017

Picture of Jesus carrying His most Holy Cross.
He seemed to be visiting every country and island in the World.
As He reached nearly all countries He staggered under the weight of sin; in some countries He fell to the ground crushed and overcome with nausea. With great difficulty He carried on until all had been visited. Then Jesus and His Cross rose upwards and the vile World and all its sin could be seen on His Cross until the World was enwrapped by His Cross.
Jesus says:
" My children, for you are my children, I ask you this:
Can you be Simon to Me, can you pray for your people, your country, for your world?
You are mine and I ask you to put behind you all childish things and earnestly pray.
Your Mother and My Mother followed Me in everything.
She who is Queen of Peace never answered back but prayed constantly. By means of prayer and sacrifice through Her Immaculate Heart all things are perfected and all things will be put right.
If you pray for poor souls in your families, in your country, in your world even though you yourselves are not perfect you will see miracles within your families and countries and your world.
Be Simon to Me, be Mother to Me, help Me to help you.
Your Jesus who weeps for such love of you and of all Creation.

Joel 2 v 28 - 32
‘And afterwards,
    I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
    your old men will dream dreams,
    your young men will see visions.
29 Even on my servants, both men and women,
    I will pour out my Spirit in those days.
30 I will show wonders in the heavens
    and on the earth,
    blood and fire and billows of smoke.
31 The sun will be turned to darkness
    and the moon to blood
    before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
32 And everyone who calls
    on the name of the Lord will be saved;
for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem
    there will be deliverance,
    as the Lord has said,
even among the survivors
    whom the Lord calls

Everyone who turns back to Me shall be saved.

Isaiah 11 v 10-12
10 In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his resting-place will be glorious. 11 In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to reclaim the surviving remnant of his people from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Upper Egypt, from Cush, from Elam, from Babylonia, from Hamath and from the islands of the Mediterranean.
12 He will raise a banner for the nations
    and gather the exiles of Israel;
he will assemble the scattered people of Judah
    from the four quarters of the earth.

May our prayer rise like incense before You that Your purposes might be fulfilled.

be rooted and built up in Christ

Notes of meeting on 3 October 2017

How lovely is your dwelling place.

Colossians 2 v 6-19
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.
For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, 10 and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority. 11 In him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not performed by human hands. Your whole self ruled by the flesh was put off when you were circumcised by Christ, 12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead.
13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having cancelled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.
16 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. 17 These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. 18 Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you. Such a person also goes into great detail about what they have seen; they are puffed up with idle notions by their unspiritual mind. 19 They have lost connection with the head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow.

Be bold, fight to the end.

Blessed are those who hear God's word and out it into practice

Notes of meeting on 26 September 2017

Luke 8 v 19-21

19 Now Jesus’ mother and brothers came to see him, but they were not able to get near him because of the crowd. 20 Someone told him, ‘Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to see you.’
21 He replied, ‘My mother and brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practice.’

Help us Lord not to just hear your word but also to act upon it and put it into practice.
Mary pondered your word in her heart and said "let it be done to me according to your word" and also " do whatever He tells you".
Help us like Mary reflect on your word to us and to put it into practice.
Help us to be faithful to the specific call you have given to us at this moment to pray for those who are lost, those who are in darkness, and in need of your Mercy.

October Prayer Intention (2017}

October Prayer Intention (2017)

We pray for all those who struggle to get enough to eat:
that they may know they are not forgotten, and that together, by the grace of God, we may build
a brighter future and a fairer world.

Lord, in your mercy hear our prayer.

Souls do not be lost to Me

Notes of meeting on 19 September 2017

Picture of Our Blessed Mother dressed in black. Under her mantle she held something in her arms, coming closer she revealed it was the Church in her arms, she had been shielding and protecting and praying for it.
People of all nations were coming to this Church.
A sword from Heaven appeared over the Church shining bright and burnished it had double edges to cut through rock like edifices that had built up around the building. The sword went right into the heart of the Church. Then all could see not a sword but Our Blessed Lord crucified on His Cross. His Blood shed for His blessed and beloved Church flowed in copious amounts out from the Church surrounding all people and all nations.

Jesus says:
" By My Blood alone can you be saved, I your Saviour Jesus call to you 'Come' your sins are many, repent, receive My Blood, be blessed for none can come to the Father except through His Son, Me your Jesus. Souls do not be lost to Me, see how I suffer for love of you, My dearest children do not spurn My saving Blood for I am crucified willingly again and continually to save you, I love you so.
My love is constant, come to Me, pray for others especially My Priest sons and lost souls, for My Body is in torment for love of them.
You are My Body, you are My Church, you are My people!
Bring others to Me for I cannot bear to lose one. I surround you with My healing and cleansing Blood.
O My people love Me for I am sorrowful, alleviate My pain with your love, beloved, beloved of My Heart.

Please respond to my call

Notes of meeting on 12 September 2017

Picture received during the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary.
There was a cave, completely sealed, with a young woman inside and she was in total despair as there was no way out. No door or exit. She could smell fear and hear terrible noises and she realised that something was coming for her and that this was Hell.
She screamed out 'Jesus and Mary help me.' Our Mother appeared and started to pray.
This child of God started to ask God for forgiveness, Our Blessed Mother kept on praying and her prayers were joined by prayers of others until in the end all was peace.
The child of God gave thanksgiving over and over again for deliverance from Hell.
Then Our Blessed Mother showed the child a doorway, the child rapped on the door and it opened.
Jesus was there on the other side His arms were open wide with such love and His eyes so inviting the child of God ran into His arms and was taken up to the Great Light.
Mary says:
" My children do you not hear my call in your hearts to pray. sometimes you respond and with great joy we help to save a soul by placing prayer and blessings upon some unfortunate person.
Please respond to my call, your brothers and sisters are in much need, in turn these persons will then pray for you and your families in Heaven.
My children there are so many distractions listen attentively and respond and together we will console my dear Son Jesus so that the unfortunate persons can be saved by Him and His grace.
I, your Mother call you to this work.

Matthew 25 v31-46
31 ‘When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
34 ‘Then the King will say to those on his right, “Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was ill and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
37 ‘Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you ill or in prison and go to visit you?”
40 ‘The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
41 ‘Then he will say to those on his left, “Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was ill and in prison and you did not look after me.”
44 ‘They also will answer, “Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or ill or in prison, and did not help you?”
45 ‘He will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.”
46 ‘Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.’

make reparation

Notes of meeting on 5 September 2017

Picture of Our Blessed Mother kneeling in front of the Throne of God. She was praying.
Then she started to weep and touched her head to the Holy Ground finally she prostrated herself with arms out in alignment with her Son's Cross.
Her act of humility and pleading with the Father caused Jesus in all His Glory to place His Holy Hand above the World showering His rays of light down upon His own. This light invigorated them filling them up with perseverance, humility, faith, hope and joy. His own felt a new sense of purpose and could clearly see through all the subterfuge and confusion sent by the adversary.
Jesus empowered His own with gifts to help draw others to Him, to draw others to lead better lives.
Our Blessed Mother stood up thanking the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit for these blessings on humanity.

Mary says:
"My children prostrate and align yourselves with my Son Jesus' Cross make reparation with me for all the indignities and coldness which even now He suffers. Together we will draw the lost to Him and all He suffers will be worthwhile.
His love will overcome all that is not of Heaven until the earth will become one with Heaven.
With much prayer and supplication mountains can be moved.
I bless you in my Son Jesus' Name.

1 Peter 4 v 12-19
12 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. 14 If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 15 If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. 16 However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. 17 For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 And,
‘If it is hard for the righteous to be saved,
    what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?’
19 So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.

Jesus' sufferings are a sign of His great love for all

Notes of meeting on 29 August 2017

Picture of Jesus with His Crown of Thorns in His hands.
Our Blessed Mother was decorating it with the rarest of flowers and different coloured gems.
There were pearls for great sanctity, rubies for blood shed and diamonds for tears shed. When not one thorn could be seen Our Blessed Mother placed an inner ring of blue velvet under the rim with the word 'Theotokos' written in gold. The gold representing the testing of fire.
Each flower and each jewel in some way helped to make the suffering of Jesus more bearable.

Jesus says:
" Oh My People if you only knew the great sufferings of My Crown, you would weep for Me your King.
This diadem is a sign of pure love for you.
My dear, dear children I enwrap Myself in your prayers, in your sacrifices, in your sufferings and in your offerings of love. These make sweet relief to the heaviness of this crown of My love for you.
And yet I would suffer even more willingly if those who know Me not would but turn to Me. I would use up all My strength, all My love to secure them to Me.
This love I bear for My People burns in Me, making rivers of Mercy to draw all men.
My little ones I thank you for gifts of sweet relief.
I bless you.
Your Jesus."

We ask this in the Name of Jesus who healed those who believed. Amen.

Mary, Help of the Sick pray for them. Amen

Stand firm in the battle to help save souls

Notes of Meeting on 22 August 2017

Picture of Jesus accompanied by Our Blessed Mother.
They came among us and prayed with us to the Father.
They seemed to glow with the fire of love; their hearts came out of them and danced before us soaring up to the heavens and back down as we were praising God.
Then all became serene and calm. We were asked by Our Blessed Mother to each present our own heart to the Sacred Heart of Jesus; but before doing so she asked if she might give it a little clean first. The queue to Our Blessed Mother was long but she patiently cleaned and polished each one ready for her Son. As each one left Jesus beheld each soul's heart and His joy at seeing such clean and wholesome hearts was overwhelming. He wept with joy.
This was not my any merit of ours but by Our Blessed Mother's prayers for graces.
Jesus says:
"My children your heavenly Mother works with you and through you preparing you, your hearts, minds, bodies and souls. Follow her in everything and you will gradually become more perfect, as she is.
You will know great joy as I do even now knowing that in this darkness My Own are trying to live in the Light of My Spirit.
You will be like soldiers, willing and able to fight the good fight against evil and so draw others to Me.
Pray much for those who cannot see any light, that the Father in Heaven will send graces through My Scared Heart and the Most Immaculate Heart of My Mother, that they too shall be perfected and able to enter the Kingdom.
There may have been a time when you yourself didn't know Me even though I always knew you. By grace and the prayer of your forbears you stand with Me today. So help your brothers and sisters stand firm in the battle to help save souls from My adversary.
Follow her who is Satan's nemesis.
I, Jesus bless you."

Friends, today we celebrate the Queenship of Mary. Mary, Queen Mary, was the definitive bearer of the divine presence, the Ark of the Covenant par excellence. When she visited her cousin Elizabeth, the infant John the Baptist leapt in his mother’s womb, doing his own version of David’s dance before the Ark.
The Queen Mother—like all of the monarchs of Israel—is a fighter. Israel frequently brought the Ark into battle with them. Most famously, the priests paraded around the city of Jericho bearing the Ark, just before the walls came tumbling down.
The Queenship of Mary is not a sentimental feast. Whenever biblical people spoke of kings or queens, they were speaking of warriors. The question for us is, which side are we on? Those trained in the Jesuit spiritual tradition know of the “two standards” meditation, which compels us to make the simple choice: In which army do you serve?
We fight, of course, not with the puny weapons of the world, but with the weapons of the Spirit; by God we fight. So don’t just honour and acknowledge the Queenship of Mary; get in her army.
Bishop Robert Barron 22/08/2017

Matthew 12 v 1 - 21
12 At that time Jesus went through the cornfields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick some ears of corn and eat them. When the Pharisees saw this, they said to him, ‘Look! Your disciples are doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath.’
He answered, ‘Haven’t you read what David did when he and his companions were hungry? He entered the house of God, and he and his companions ate the consecrated bread – which was not lawful for them to do, but only for the priests. Or haven’t you read in the Law that the priests on Sabbath duty in the temple desecrate the Sabbath and yet are innocent? I tell you that something greater than the temple is here. If you had known what these words mean, “I desire mercy, not sacrifice,”[ you would not have condemned the innocent. For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.’
Going on from that place, he went into their synagogue, 10 and a man with a shrivelled hand was there. Looking for a reason to bring charges against Jesus, they asked him, ‘Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?’
11 He said to them, ‘If any of you has a sheep and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will you not take hold of it and lift it out? 12 How much more valuable is a person than a sheep! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.’
13 Then he said to the man, ‘Stretch out your hand.’ So he stretched it out and it was completely restored, just as sound as the other. 14 But the Pharisees went out and plotted how they might kill Jesus.
15 Aware of this, Jesus withdrew from that place. A large crowd followed him, and he healed all who were ill. 16 He warned them not to tell others about him. 17 This was to fulfil what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah:
18 ‘Here is my servant whom I have chosen,
    the one I love, in whom I delight;
I will put my Spirit on him,
    and he will proclaim justice to the nations.
19 He will not quarrel or cry out;
    no one will hear his voice in the streets.
20 A bruised reed he will not break,
    and a smouldering wick he will not snuff out,
till he has brought justice through to victory.
21     In his name the nations will put their hope.’


Psalm 148

Praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
    praise him in the heights above.
Praise him, all his angels;
    praise him, all his heavenly hosts.
Praise him, sun and moon;
    praise him, all you shining stars.
Praise him, you highest heavens
    and you waters above the skies.
Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for at his command they were created,
and he established them for ever and ever –
    he issued a decree that will never pass away.
Praise the Lord from the earth,
    you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
    stormy winds that do his bidding,
you mountains and all hills,
    fruit trees and all cedars,
10 wild animals and all cattle,
    small creatures and flying birds,
11 kings of the earth and all nations,
    you princes and all rulers on earth,
12 young men and women,
    old men and children.
13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
    for his name alone is exalted;
    his splendour is above the earth and the heavens.
14 And he has raised up for his people a horn,
    the praise of all his faithful servants,
    of Israel, the people close to his heart.
Praise the Lord.

Align your hearts and minds to Me

Notes of meeting on 15 August 2017

Picture of Jesus in a homespun white garment. He is stood to the right of the Father's Throne and His hair is gently moving in the Spirit's Breeze.
Flowing down from His side is blood and water, down out of the Temple into the surrounding area until it becomes a river.
People from all nations are submerging themselves in the flow and as they arise the Blood and Water adheres to their skin and all sin, darkness, deprivation, bitterness, anger and resentment have gone from them. They feel only peace. They move their way to the City Gate to gain admittance and as they pass through the Gate all traces of Our Lord's Blood and Water are absorbed into them leaving them refreshed and cleansed, no more trepidation, only a oneness with Jesus as though their hearts flowed into His. His Heart beats aligned with theirs, His Blood, His thinking and breathing becoming their own.
Jesus says:
"My people many are the delights and wonders that await you in Our meeting, all that was detrimental to you will have passed away and only your New Life in the Son , Me Your Jesus will remain.
My Blood pours continually drawing My children to me, I await you with a Lovers Heart .
I, Jesus know your name, I knew you before you were conceived in your mothers womb, the spark of My Love that caused you to be and have Life.
Do not waste time on the things of this life they are transient, instead align your hearts and minds to Me.
Turn to Our Mother when you feel tempted to leave Me, she will always direct you back to Me, her Son, for she is the most glorious and powerful guardian of God's children. Follow her life as a pattern, pray for those who have no one to pray for them and indeed much prayer is needed.
I, Jesus anoint you, each of you, by your name to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Believe I am in you as you are in Me. You My people consecrated to My Scared Heart and the Most Immaculate Heart of My Mother do not fear or she who is all glorious will lead you to your Saviour.
Be filled."

Ephesians 6 v 10 -18
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled round your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

1 Corinthians 10 v 1-31

For I do not want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers and sisters, that our ancestors were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea. They were all baptised into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. They all ate the same spiritual food and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ. Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered in the wilderness.
Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did. Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written: ‘The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry.’  We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did – and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died. We should not test Christ, as some of them did – and were killed by snakes. 10 And do not grumble, as some of them did – and were killed by the destroying angel.
11 These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come. 12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! 13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

Idol feasts and the Lord’s Supper

14 Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. 15 I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. 16 Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? 17 Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf.
18 Consider the people of Israel: do not those who eat the sacrifices participate in the altar? 19 Do I mean then that food sacrificed to an idol is anything, or that an idol is anything? 20 No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons. 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons. 22 Are we trying to arouse the Lord’s jealousy? Are we stronger than he?

The believer’s freedom

23 ‘I have the right to do anything,’ you say – but not everything is beneficial. ‘I have the right to do anything’– but not everything is constructive. 24 No one should seek their own good, but the good of others.
25 Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience, 26 for, ‘The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.’
27 If an unbeliever invites you to a meal and you want to go, eat whatever is put before you without raising questions of conscience. 28 But if someone says to you, ‘This has been offered in sacrifice,’ then do not eat it, both for the sake of the one who told you and for the sake of conscience. 29 I am referring to the other person’s conscience, not yours. For why is my freedom being judged by another’s conscience? 30 If I take part in the meal with thankfulness, why am I denounced because of something I thank God for?
31 So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 32 Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God – 33 even as I try to please everyone in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved.

A living hope

Notes of meeting on 8 August 2017

Picture of Jesus right here in our midst.
His Body gathered more and more light until the whole room and us were filled and consumed in this light.
Jesus says:
"My children, My people come gather to Me in the Glory of the Father.
Where there is hatred bring love;
Where there is darkness bring light;
Where there is fear bring hope;
Where there is misery bring joy.
Do not be afraid for you shall be a beacon of glory for My Father amid the darkness of this world.
You will gather and garner souls for the glorious new Kingdom.
Your prayers and endeavours together with my glorious Mother's pleading and prayers will win over the hearts and very souls of many and she who weeps will dance with joy that her children have co-operated with her plan.
Continue to pray through the Immaculate Heart and in My Fathers Divine Will.
You My people assuage the bitterness in My Heart making room only for Joy, Love, Hope and Light.
I give you My Peace, Your Jesus."

1 Peter  1 v 3 - 8
3 Blessed be God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who in his great mercy has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead
4 and into a heritage that can never be spoilt or soiled and never fade away. It is reserved in heaven for you
5 who are being kept safe by God's power through faith until the salvation which has been prepared is revealed at the final point of time.
6 This is a great joy to you, even though for a short time yet you must bear all sorts of trials;
7 so that the worth of your faith, more valuable than gold, which is perishable even if it has been tested by fire, may be proved -- to your praise and honour when Jesus Christ is revealed.
8 You have not seen him, yet you love him; and still without seeing him you believe in him and so are already filled with a joy so glorious that it cannot be described;

Help us step out in faith. Our faith should bear fruit in actions.

Romans 8 v 31-34
31 After saying this, what can we add? If God is for us, who can be against us?
32 Since he did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for the sake of all of us, then can we not expect that with him he will freely give us all his gifts?
33 Who can bring any accusation against those that God has chosen? When God grants saving justice
34 who can condemn? Are we not sure that it is Christ Jesus, who died -- yes and more, who was raised from the dead and is at God's right hand -- and who is adding his plea for us?

Pray for the lost

Notes of meeting on 1 August 2017

Picture of a lake on which raged a tempest and floating on the lake was a man in great difficulty.
Eventually when nearly dead he could see he was being pushed towards an abyss of foaming fire. In his last moments he cried out "My Mother help me, Jesus save me"
Our Lady heard his cry and sent out upon the lake a raft to save him. This raft was made of prayers and sacrifices and all good works of those who loved this man also of those who didn't even know him.
Our Lady herself steered the raft until she got to him. He was in a terrible state of fear but he heaved himself on the raft and collapsed. He woke to find himself bandaged and all his wounds salved and bound. When he looked he was coming into land, a land of great beauty with a great temple atop of a mountain. When he looked at the raft it was Our Lord Jesus upon His Cross, the man had clung to Him until Jesus brought him safe home.

Jesus says:
"Together with My Mother you, your prayers, sacrifices and taking My Eucharist worthily will save souls and save Me from the terrible pain of separation from lost souls.
I your Jesus plead with you that together with My Mother the Most Glorious Virgin Queen of Heaven you will cast your worries aside and pray for the lost.
I Myself will take care of your worries, hand them to Me and as you do as I ask your reward will be great and My Poor Heart will be soothed by your loving actions.
My dear little souls pray for poor souls that My Heart would stop breaking. I weep. I weep.

Sirach 2
1 My child, if you aspire to serve the Lord, prepare yourself for an ordeal.
2 Be sincere of heart, be steadfast, and do not be alarmed when disaster comes.
3 Cling to him and do not leave him, so that you may be honoured at the end of your days.
4 Whatever happens to you, accept it, and in the uncertainties of your humble state, be patient,
5 since gold is tested in the fire, and the chosen in the furnace of humiliation.
6 Trust him and he will uphold you, follow a straight path and hope in him.
7 You who fear the Lord, wait for his mercy; do not turn aside, for fear you fall.
8 You who fear the Lord, trust him, and you will not be robbed of your reward.
9 You who fear the Lord, hope for those good gifts of his, everlasting joy and mercy.
10 Look at the generations of old and see: whoever trusted in the Lord and was put to shame? Or whoever, steadfastly fearing him, was forsaken? Or whoever called to him and was ignored?
11 For the Lord is compassionate and merciful, he forgives sins and saves in the time of distress.
12 Woe to faint hearts and listless hands, and to the sinner who treads two paths.

Romans 12 v 1-2
1 I urge you, then, brothers, remembering the mercies of God, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, dedicated and acceptable to God; that is the kind of worship for you, as sensible people.
2 Do not model your behaviour on the contemporary world, but let the renewing of your minds transform you, so that you may discern for yourselves what is the will of God -- what is good and acceptable and mature.
