The Light of Christ

Let the one who boasts - boast in the Lord

Notes from meeting on 11 December 2018

1 Corinthians 1 v18-31
18 For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.  19 For it is written,
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
    and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart.”
20 Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?  21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, God decided, through the foolishness of our proclamation, to save those who believe.  22 For Jews demand signs and Greeks desire wisdom,  23 but we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles,  24 but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.  25 For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.
26 Consider your own call, brothers and sisters: not many of you were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth.  27 But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong;  28 God chose what is low and despised in the world, things that are not, to reduce to nothing things that are,  29 so that no one might boast in the presence of God.  30 He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption,  31 in order that, as it is written, “.”

Luke 3 v 1-6
 In the fifteenth year of the reign of Emperor Tiberius, when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, and Herod was ruler of Galilee, and his brother Philip ruler of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias ruler of Abilene,  2 during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John son of Zechariah in the wilderness.  3 He went into all the region around the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins,  4 as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah,
“The voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord,
    make his paths straight.
5 Every valley shall be filled,
    and every mountain and hill shall be made low,
and the crooked shall be made straight,
    and the rough ways made smooth;
6 and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.’”

Come Lord Jesus Come

Notes of meeting on 4 December 2018

Creator God we thank you that your Spirit hovered over the abyss at the beginning of time to bring for the your wonderful Creation.
Creator God we thank you that the same Spirit hovered over Mary as she conceived and brought into the World your Son Jesus to be our Saviour through His birth, death and resurrection.
Creator God we pray that the Spirit would once again hover over the World and prepare it for the second coming of Jesus in His Glory.

2 Peter 1 v 3 - 11
 His divine power has given us everything needed for life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Thus he has given us, through these things, his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of lust, and may become participants of the divine nature. For this very reason, you must make every effort to support your faith with goodness, and goodness with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with endurance, and endurance with godliness, and godliness with mutual affection, and mutual affection with love. For if these things are yours and are increasing among you, they keep you from being ineffective and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For anyone who lacks these things is short-sighted and blind, and is forgetful of the cleansing of past sins. 10 Therefore, brothers and sisters, be all the more eager to confirm your call and election, for if you do this, you will never stumble. 11 For in this way, entry into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ will be richly provided for you.

Let us entrust ourselves to God

Notes from meeting on 27 November 2018

1 Peter 4 v 12-19
12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that is taking place among you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice insofar as you are sharing Christ’s sufferings, so that you may also be glad and shout for joy when his glory is revealed. 14 If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the spirit of glory, which is the Spirit of God, is resting on you.  15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, a criminal, or even as a mischief maker. 16 Yet if any of you suffers as a Christian, do not consider it a disgrace, but glorify God because you bear this name. 17 For the time has come for judgment to begin with the household of God; if it begins with us, what will be the end 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 sinners?”
19 Therefore, let those suffering in accordance with God’s will entrust themselves to a faithful Creator, while continuing to do good.
We are strengthened by the many gifts that God has given us, the gift of the Spirit himself, the gift of Jesus  in the Eucharist and His Word and the gift of Mary our Mother.

Once again I ask you to pray for lost souls

Notes of meeting on 13 November 2018

Picture of a child in the womb being loved, sang to , nurtured and nourished.
When the child was born the love, the songs, the nurture and the nourishing continued.
When the child grew and wandered off the Mother called him back, when he fell she soothed him.
The Mother taught the child well and formed him in prayer and through the Holy Spirit.
The child after many falls came to know her son Jesus.
The child became a man and looking forward prayed, fasted and offered himself to the Father.
Mary says: "My children do you recognise mankind, nurtured by my love and offered to the Father in Heaven that you might work well in the Kingdom.
My little ones you are not perfect but my Heart overflows with love when I see how you try to please my Son Jesus. If you continually pray to the Holy Spirit you will be perfected and your endeavours will be blessed.
In this present moment in this present place I ask that you pray for your less fortunate brothers and sisters who may not have had the loving formation that you have been blessed with.
I continually ask the Holy Spirit to make you souls who commit to prayer and perseverance.
My children all souls who pray especially together will draw men and women to my Son Jesus.
So once again I ask you to pray for lost souls and conversion of your brothers and sisters and especially for your Priests.
I place my praying hands upon each one of you and call the Holy Spirit to pour out His gifts upon you.
I bless you with my maternal blessing in the name of the Blessed One, Jesus, my Son."

1 John 2 v 7 - 17
Beloved, I am writing you no new commandment, but an old commandment that you have had from the beginning; the old commandment is the word that you have heard. Yet I am writing you a new commandment that is true in him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining. Whoever says, “I am in the light,” while hating a brother or sister, is still in the darkness. 10 Whoever loves a brother or sister lives in the light, and in such a person there is no cause for stumbling. 11 But whoever hates another believer is in the darkness, walks in the darkness, and does not know the way to go, because the darkness has brought on blindness.
12 I am writing to you, little children,
    because your sins are forgiven on account of his name.
13 I am writing to you, fathers,
    because you know him who is from the beginning.
I am writing to you, young people,
    because you have conquered the evil one.
14 I write to you, children,
    because you know the Father.
I write to you, fathers,
    because you know him who is from the beginning.
I write to you, young people,
    because you are strong
    and the word of God abides in you,
        and you have overcome the evil one.
15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. The love of the Father is not in those who love the world; 16 for all that is in the world—the desire of the flesh, the desire of the eyes, the pride in riches—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 And the world and its desire are passing away, but those who do the will of God live forever.

Pray pray pray my children for poor souls

Notes of meeting on 6 November 2018

Picture of Our Blessed Mother talking to her Son pleading with Him.
Our Mother seemed to be in a very quiet place where only whispered prayers could be heard.
To one side of Our Blessed Mother there seemed to be an abyss full of smoke and she was reaching out to save a soul from the pit.
The whispered prayers became louder.
Jesus stood as Judge and Our Blessed Mother pointed to all the souls in Purgatory praying. Then she pointed to all this persons relatives and friends who were praying and weeping.
Finally, Jesus could bear it no longer and He put out His hand and pulled this soul back from the brink.
Jesus' Heart seemed to be like molten fire and His face was alight with love. This soul who was in terror now cried and cried with love to his Saviour over and over thanking Him and he ran to the arms of Our Blessed Mother like a little child returned home at last.
Our Blessed Mother says:
"My little ones you do not realise the power of your heartfelt prayers, your prayers help in the Salvific work of saving souls. If you pray my Son's Heart overflows with love and He Himself commutes any punishment by His reparations made for each soul by His sufferings and tortures on His path to Glory.
May you my little ones always know that I am your Mother come to me when you are upset or a particular obstacle seems to bring you down, together we will unloose the tangle and all will be right.
Pray, pray, pray my children for poor souls that my Son will be enraptured by your prayers He can then do nothing but answer them in a most Glorious way. Mary."

Psalm 42
As a deer longs for flowing streams,
    so my soul longs for you, O God.
My soul thirsts for God,
    for the living God.
When shall I come and behold
    the face of God?
My tears have been my food
    day and night,
while people say to me continually,
    “Where is your God?”
These things I remember,
    as I pour out my soul:
how I went with the throng,
    and led them in procession to the house of God,
with glad shouts and songs of thanksgiving,
    a multitude keeping festival.
Why are you cast down, O my soul,
    and why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
    my help and my God.
My soul is cast down within me;
    therefore I remember you
from the land of Jordan and of Hermon,
    from Mount Mizar.
Deep calls to deep
    at the thunder of your cataracts;
all your waves and your billows
    have gone over me.
By day the Lord commands his steadfast love,
    and at night his song is with me,
    a prayer to the God of my life.
I say to God, my rock,
    “Why have you forgotten me?
Why must I walk about mournfully
    because the enemy oppresses me?”
10 As with a deadly wound in my body,
    my adversaries taunt me,
while they say to me continually,
    “Where is your God?”
11 Why are you cast down, O my soul,
    and why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
    my help and my God.
Galatians 5 v 16 - 26
16 Live by the Spirit, I say, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For what the flesh desires is opposed to the Spirit, and what the Spirit desires is opposed to the flesh; for these are opposed to each other, to prevent you from doing what you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not subject to the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious: fornication, impurity, licentiousness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, anger, quarrels, dissensions, factions, 21 envy, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these. I am warning you, as I warned you before: those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.22 By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things. 24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also be guided by the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, competing against one another, envying one another.
Pray for the souls in purgatory and those who are dying : Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them. Amen

Pray extra hard for your priests

Notes of meeting on 23 October 2018

Picture of Jesus being baptised in the Jordan River. As Jesus came up out of the water those around Him looked on in amazement because they saw and heard the Holy Spirit and the Father speaking.
There were others in the crowd who saw and heard nothing, these were the spies of the Jewish Authorities who were always watching John, they saw nothing but could feel the quietness as though the earth stood still for a minute.
Mary says:
" My children, my Son is Divine it is true but He is also human just like you. When He was baptised He was showing to you that He is your brother in the flesh and that His Divinity was humbled for love of you.
Think about Him serving His disciples by washing their feet. My children I want you to look hard at your lives, like my Son Jesus you are a living example, yes you have made mistakes and you sin but do others feel drawn to you because in your humility you ask pardon and visit the Sacrament of Penance, do others see the changes in you, I would say in most yes but we can always do better.
Let the love and forgiveness of others be always present, ask the Holy Spirit to guide you and strengthen you.
Also my children could you, will you pray extra hard for your priests, they although men like you, are subjected to the evil one more and more. They need the bulwark of your prayers like a citadel to keep them safe. Remember they may be just men but they are men who can become saints with your prayers for they touch the Living Christ every day.
Remember you are examples also of the Living Christ and as such will draw others to my Son Jesus. Mary."

Sirach (Ecclesiasticus) 4
My child, do not cheat the poor of their living,
    and do not keep needy eyes waiting.
Do not grieve the hungry,
    or anger one in need.
Do not add to the troubles of the desperate,
    or delay giving to the needy.
Do not reject a suppliant in distress,
    or turn your face away from the poor.
Do not avert your eye from the needy,
    and give no one reason to curse you;
for if in bitterness of soul some should curse you,
    their Creator will hear their prayer.

Endear yourself to the congregation;
    bow your head low to the great.
Give a hearing to the poor,
    and return their greeting politely.
Rescue the oppressed from the oppressor;
    and do not be hesitant in giving a verdict.
10 Be a father to orphans,
    and be like a husband to their mother;
you will then be like a son of the Most High,
    and he will love you more than does your mother.
11 Wisdom teaches her children
    and gives help to those who seek her.
12 Whoever loves her loves life,
    and those who seek her from early morning are filled with joy.
13 Whoever holds her fast inherits glory,
    and the Lord blesses the place she enters.
14 Those who serve her minister to the Holy One;
    the Lord loves those who love her.
15 Those who obey her will judge the nations,
    and all who listen to her will live secure.
16 If they remain faithful, they will inherit her;
    their descendants will also obtain her.
17 For at first she will walk with them on tortuous paths;
    she will bring fear and dread upon them,
and will torment them by her discipline
    until she trusts them,
and she will test them with her ordinances.
18 Then she will come straight back to them again and gladden them,
    and will reveal her secrets to them.
19 If they go astray she will forsake them,
    and hand them over to their ruin.
20 Watch for the opportune time, and beware of evil,
    and do not be ashamed to be yourself.
21 For there is a shame that leads to sin,
    and there is a shame that is glory and favour.
22 Do not show partiality, to your own harm,
    or deference, to your downfall.
23 Do not refrain from speaking at the proper moment,
    and do not hide your wisdom.
24 For wisdom becomes known through speech,
    and education through the words of the tongue.
25 Never speak against the truth,
    but be ashamed of your ignorance.
26 Do not be ashamed to confess your sins,
    and do not try to stop the current of a river.
27 Do not subject yourself to a fool,
    or show partiality to a ruler.
28 Fight to the death for truth,
    and the Lord God will fight for you.
29 Do not be reckless in your speech,
    or sluggish and remiss in your deeds.
30 Do not be like a lion in your home,
    or suspicious of your servants.
31 Do not let your hand be stretched out to receive
    and closed when it is time to give.

Come back to Me

Notes of meeting 16 October 2018

Picture of many Tabernacles in many Churches, the doors of the Tabernacles were wide open. Blood, flesh, skin, hair, thorns and nails flowed out right through the Churches. Angels descended and collected every piece of flesh, skin, hair, thorn and nail taking them up to Heaven.
All that remained was Our Lord's Blood which flowed out past the congregation into the streets.
The Blood had a voice saying "Come back to Me My Beloved that you might once again be held in my Heart surrounded by My Blood and made clean. Oh come, come back My Children."
The Blood called and called and it now seemed to be mixed with the tears of Jesus calling for ever calling that they would be safe and made clean.
Mary says:
"My dear children your Saviour Jesus suffers so in His adorable body for love of you, He feels all things deep in His Heart and did all that was good for love of you.
Please my children add your prayers and sacrifices to His that He might know the deep Joy of His lost children returning to Him in the sheepfold of the Father.
I implore you to pray and ask the Holy Spirit to pour graces upon those who are cold, pagan and in some cases detest your Saviour.
Jesus never stops loving you my children, aid Him by standing firm with Him.
I bless you and pray for you in the Blood of my Son Jesus. Mary."

Luke 12 v 22 -34
22 He said to his disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or about your body, what you will wear. 23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. 24 Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! 25 And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life?  26 If then you are not able to do so small a thing as that, why do you worry about the rest? 27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. 28 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! 29 And do not keep striving for what you are to eat and what you are to drink, and do not keep worrying. 30 For it is the nations of the world that strive after all these things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31 Instead, strive for his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.
32 “Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. 33 Sell your possessions, and give alms. Make purses for yourselves that do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. 34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Be as Holy as you can

 Notes of meeting on 9 October 2018

Picture of Mary and Joseph in their home at Nazareth. Our Blessed Mother was making a tiny garment and Joseph was fashioning a babies bed. Our Blessed Mother was singing sweetly Psalms and songs and the Child Jesus of about 6 months within her womb responded by moving to her sweet voice.
In this home there was so much love between the Child Jesus within her and Mary and Joseph. This chaste love permeated their home and their lives as they waited for their Child and their King.
Joseph beckons us to come in.
Our Blessed Mother opens her arms wide to allow us her children to come close and listen.
We can all hear the Jesus' little heart beat and as we come closer his heartbeat gets faster and we all sing a little lullaby to Him and His heart seems to blow little kisses to us until He becomes still and rests.
Mary says: "My children when you see the things of this World and they disturb you remember this time of Holiness and waiting for God's son Jesus to be born.
The Hope of the World is just as important now as then in fact more so.
Do not lose Hope for Holiness and Goodness will prevail.
Hard times yes, but God gives you strength to carry on.
Prayer is your weapon against my adversary and the firm Hope in Our Saviour Jesus Christ the tiny child considered an irrelevance in this World but whose Justice is like a two edged sword.
All my children if you only knew how much He loves you, each of you, you would fear nothing not even death for those who love Him will be with Him and no other happiness you can think of will come close to the Joy between you and my Son when you meet.
So my little ones be as Holy as you can, praying, fasting, reading the Word and above all in loving your fellow brothers and sisters drawing them closer to Jesus with your prayers and little sacrifices.
I sing a love song to my Son on your behalf and pray for strength and perseverance that you be strong in your innermost selves loving the Triune God always. Mary."

Picture of Jesus leading Mary into the group and Jesus says "I can refuse her nothing".

Matthew 6 v 5 - 14
“And whenever you pray, do not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, so that they may be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward. But whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
“When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
“Pray then in this way:
Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name.
10     Your kingdom come.
    Your will be done,
        on earth as it is in heaven.
11     Give us this day our daily bread.
12     And forgive us our debts,
        as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13     And do not bring us to the time of trial,
        but rescue us from the evil one.
14 For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; 15 but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Theotokos Prayer Group - No meeting on 2 October

Listen and do as He tells you

Notes of meeting on 25 September 2018

Picture of Our Blessed Mother with her hand near her ear.
She says "Dear children, listen always to my Son Jesus. Do as He tells you.
Read your Bibles especially the Gospels and Acts, reaffirm your knowledge and loyalty to the truth contained within.
Where my Son speaks listen and do as He says for the truth will set you free in these times of confusion and travesty. My little ones you know that my Son speaks always the truth so look at and listen to Him and act accordingly.
I say this so you cannot be lead astray. I am your Mother and I love you with my Maternal heart and hold you within my Heart for you (each one of you) are precious to me but especially to my Son.
Do as He tell you!
I cast my mantle of protection around you.

Sirach 33 v 1-3
No evil will befall the one who fears the Lord,
    but in trials such a one will be rescued again and again.
The wise will not hate the law,
    but the one who is hypocritical about it is like a boat in a storm.
The sensible person will trust in the law;
    for such a one the law is as dependable as a divine oracle.

Matthew 12 v 50
50 For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”

Hebrews 10 v 26-39
26 For if we wilfully persist in sin after having received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a fearful prospect of judgement, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has violated the law of Moses dies without mercy “on the testimony of two or three witnesses.” 29 How much worse punishment do you think will be deserved by those who have spurned the Son of God, profaned the blood of the covenant by which they were sanctified, and outraged the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know the one who said, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge his people.” 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
32 But recall those earlier days when, after you had been enlightened, you endured a hard struggle with sufferings, 33 sometimes being publicly exposed to abuse and persecution, and sometimes being partners with those so treated. 34 For you had compassion for those who were in prison, and you cheerfully accepted the plundering of your possessions, knowing that you yourselves possessed something better and more lasting. 35 Do not, therefore, abandon that confidence of yours; it brings a great reward. 36 For you need endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised. 37 For yet
“in a very little while,
    the one who is coming will come and will not delay;
38 but my righteous one will live by faith.
    My soul takes no pleasure in anyone who shrinks back.”
39 But we are not among those who shrink back and so are lost, but among those who have faith and so are saved.

Notes of Meeting on 18 September 2018

Baruch 4 v 1-14
1 She (Wisdom) is the book of God's commandments, the Law that stands for ever; those who keep her shall live, those who desert her shall die.
2 Turn back, Jacob, seize her, in her radiance make your way to light:
3 do not yield your glory to another, your privilege to a people not your own.
4 Israel, blessed are we: what pleases God has been revealed to us!
5 Take courage, my people, memorial of Israel!
6 You were sold to the nations, but not for extermination. You provoked God; and so were delivered to your enemies,
7 since you had angered your Creator by offering sacrifices to demons, and not to God.
8 You had forgotten the eternal God who reared you. You had also grieved Jerusalem who nursed you,
9 for when she saw God's anger falling on you, she said: Listen, you neighbours of Zion: God has sent me great sorrow.
10 I have seen my sons and daughters taken into captivity, which the Eternal brought down on them.
11 I had reared them joyfully; in tears, in sorrow, I watched them go away.
12 Do not, any of you, exult over me, a widow, deserted by so many; I am bereaved because of the sins of my children, who turned away from the Law of God,
13 who did not want to know his precepts and would not follow the ways of his commandments or tread the paths of discipline as his justice directed.
14 Come here, neighbours of Zion! Remember my sons' and daughters' captivity, which the Eternal brought down on them.

Psalm 121

I lift up my eyes to the mountains –
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip –
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you –
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm –
    he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and for evermore.

Lord grant is the wisdom of seeking your will in our lives, help us to follow you and remain faithful to you. Help us keep to your ways and repent of the times we follow our own paths that take us away from you.
Thank you that you remain faithful and always call us back to you.

Notes of meeting on 11 September 2018

May My Peace come down on you.
May My Peace reign in you.
May me Peace heal you in body, mind and soul.

1 Peter 5 v1-11
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.

Isaiah 60 v 1-7
‘Arise, shine, for your light has come,
    and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
See, darkness covers the earth
    and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
    and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light,
    and kings to the brightness of your dawn.

‘Lift up your eyes and look about you:
    all assemble and come to you;
your sons come from afar,
    and your daughters are carried on the hip.
Then you will look and be radiant,
    your heart will throb and swell with joy;
the wealth on the seas will be brought to you,
    to you the riches of the nations will come.
Herds of camels will cover your land,
    young camels of Midian and Ephah.
And all from Sheba will come,
    bearing gold and incense
    and proclaiming the praise of the Lord.
All Kedar’s flocks will be gathered to you,
    the rams of Nebaioth will serve you;
they will be accepted as offerings on my altar,
    and I will adorn my glorious temple.

Sacred Heart of Jesus

Notes of meeting on 28 August 2018

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on fire with love for His people. In the centre of His Heart were many families and many priests. In His Heart all felt protected from the onslaught of Satan's arrows.
Mary says to us "My dear children let your prayer and praises be to my Son Jesus a cooling balm to soothe His pain at this time of indifference, ingratitude and evil that is directed to His Most Holy Sacred Heart.
My Son asks that you enthrone Him within your hearts and He will give you, your families and friends refuge.
Jesus asks you to pray especially for your priests that they too will find a calm haven and refuge in His Most Holy Heart.
In turning to my Son Jesus you will avail yourselves of the grace of the Holy Spirit and all of His Holy promises, you will succeed and need not fret about the arrows of the adversary for nothing can separate you from the Love of Jesus when you call on Him in any situation.
I too plead with you to pray for all your faithful; priests that they will find strength and refuge.
My children stand firm for when Satan thinks he has the upper hand my immaculate Heat intervenes and will lead you to the Reign of the Sacred Heart of my Son.

Stop sinning

Notes of meeting on 21 August 2018

This prayer meeting was offered as reparation for the child abuse scandal in the Church.

Picture of Our Blessed Mother dressed in silver and gold, she was pointing with one hand to her Immaculate Heart and with the other towards us her children on earth.
On the earth were pinpoints of light from which praying people sent prayers carried on incense toward her which she gathered in her Heart. Then she presented them to the Father, her Crucified Son and the Holy Spirit.
From the earth the light increased and the darkness was dispersed. These prayers were magnified and seemed to cause graces to pour forth on the people. Many souls destined for Hell were through this grace able to make reparation and say sorry. Angels could be seen escorting these blessed souls towards Our Mother and on to Jesus. The angels were so happy and Jesus felt sweet relief.

Mary says "My children prayer like incense comes into my Heart where I ponder and magnify your entreaties. I present them to the Father and in His Great Mercy those destined for Hell because of your co-operation, reparations and prayers and praises are brought before my Suffering Son Jesus who divests Himself even more of His Saving Blood and so grace abounds and souls are saved.
I ask you to keep up and even to go beyond the efforts you have been making. My children Satan my adversary tries harder to make you and your brothers and sisters to desist from prayer, know this when you feel tired or its too much trouble that is exactly when your prayer is needed. My children I pray for the gifts of Holiness and Perseverance. My children you will be much happier if you follow my instructions for Satan will be thwarted.
I thank you for loving my Son Jesus and thank Him for giving you to me to be Mother for all my little ones. Mary."

1 Corinthians 15 v 29-34
29 Now if there is no resurrection, what will those do who are baptised for the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why are people baptised for them? 30 And as for us, why do we endanger ourselves every hour? 31 I face death every day – yes, just as surely as I boast about you in Christ Jesus our Lord. 32 If I fought wild beasts in Ephesus with no more than human hopes, what have I gained? If the dead are not raised,
‘Let us eat and drink,
    for tomorrow we die.’
33 Do not be misled: ‘Bad company corrupts good character.’  34 Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God – I say this to your shame.

Matthew 9 v 14-17
14 Then John’s disciples came and asked him, ‘How is it that we and the Pharisees fast often, but your disciples do not fast?’
15 Jesus answered, ‘How can the guests of the bridegroom mourn while he is with them? The time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; then they will fast.
16 ‘No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse. 17 Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out, and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.

Make us as new wineskins that we may hold your grace and mercy.

Grace abounds

Notes of meeting on 14 August 2018

Picture of Jesus on the Cross, Our Blessed Mother was praying at the foot of the Cross. Our world was very dark, cold and faithless. She prayed for those whose hearts shone in the darkness, those whose faith was strong then for those whose faith was less strong and lastly with tears for those who had no faith at all.
Jesus then appeared as the Risen Christ in all His Glory and Light. He shone His light into all the places upon the earth where sin and faithlessness co-existed.
He said "Where no faith is to be found I am still faithful, where there is sin My Mercy and Grace shall abound. For you are My People even those against Me I shall seek.
Come return to Me and to your Heavenly Father. Those who love Me and are My true companions, pray for your brothers and sisters who know Me not and you will see graces poured forth from Heaven. If you do as My Mother continually asks of you, pray, fast, say her Rosary you will cause great conversions upon the earth.
I your Lord and your Love ask you and beg you to be my true companions and help in the salvific conversion of My lost people. Together we with the Holy Spirit, My Heavenly Father and My Mother Most Holy will vanquish the evil one and we will bring our sons and daughters home!
Jesus your Love."

Picture of Our Blessed Mother in front of the Throne of God and to the right was Jesus suffering on His Cross. Our Mother full of humility, grace and love was abasing herself before the Blessed Trinity pleading for her children here on earth. As she pleaded more and more Jesus suffered willingly more and more to free us from the slavery of sin.
She who is so little, tiny and full of humility again and again pleaded and the Father Son and Holy Spirit felt such love and pity on mankind that they sent extra graces to envelop those in need in the world. All people thanked and praised the Trinity and Our Blessed Mother.
She said " My children I your Mother ask you to pray heartfelt prayers to assuage the terrible concern for my suffering children which makes me weep. But, with your heartfelt prayer the Blessed Trinity can refuse nothing to me and so we will co-operate with the Father's plan.
My little ones pray from your hearts.
My maternal blessing through my Son Jesus be with you. Mary."

Matthew 6 v 1-24
‘Be careful not to practise your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
‘So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honoured by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 
 5‘And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
‘This, then, is how you should pray:
‘“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.
14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
16 ‘When you fast, do not look sombre as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 17 But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, 18 so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
19 ‘Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
22 ‘The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
24 ‘No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.

Hail to you. We ask you, O saint, full of glory, the ever virgin, the Mother of God, the Mother of Christ, lift up our prayers unto your beloved Son, that He may forgive us our sins.
Hail to the Holy Virgin, who bore for us the true Light, Christ our God. Ask the Lord on our behalf, that He may have mercy on our souls, and forgive us our sins.
O Virgin Mary, the holy Mother of God, the trusted advocate of the human race, intercede on our behalf before Christ, Whom you bore, that He may grant us the forgiveness of our sins.
Hail to you, O Virgin the right and true queen. Hail to the pride of our race, you who bore us Emmanuel.
We ask you, remember us, our trusted advocate, before our Lord Jesus Christ, that He may forgive us our sins.
From Prime in the Agpeia (Coptic Liturgy of Hours) which is prayed in Egypt's Coptic Catholic Church

The Word made flesh

Notes of meeting on 31 July 2018

Picture of Our Blessed Mother pointing to the Manger of her Son Jesus.
The light seemed to form a Host and emanated from all around the child.
His life played out in and upon the Host from His Birth to Calvary right though to His Resurrection and Ascension.
Then the Host blazed with more light and His Second Coming could be seen. When this time is to come all peoples will see Him and feel Him deep in their hearts.
Our Blessed Mother says "My children once again I place my Son Jesus before you in the form of the Eucharist, every Host contains within it every act from conception through Calvary His tortuous death and then on to His Glorious Ascension and finally His Glorious Triumph to come.
Every miracle,every word spoken, all is contained in the simple piece of bread after it has been consecrated by my priest sons.
My Son has allowed Himself to become as us. The Word made flesh. He is everything Divine in union with the Father and the Holy Spirit.
The Eucharist is your first and most holy blessing from my Son given even before His crucifixion and death. This blessing is for your healing, strengthening and sanctifying grace.
My children pray that this great gift will multiply to many more recipients and so graces will abound in more and more of our people and so all will become Children of God.
Pray for my priest sons.
Mary Mother of Jesus "

Matthew 12 v 1-21
12 At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick some heads of grain 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 Sabbathand 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 shriveled 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 fulfill 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 smoldering wick he will not snuff out,
till he has brought justice through to victory.
21     In his name the nations will put their hope.”
