Perserverance

Notes of meeting on 18 February 2020

Picture of Jesus staggering under the weight of the Cross and a woman wiping the blood, spittle and sweat from His face.

Mary says: "My children, instead of a cloth to wipe my Son Jesus' brow, I wish you to present Him with your pliable loving hearts. Jesus will imprint upon them not only His likeness but the many gifts and graces you need in these times. Gifts of Love, Purity, Truth, Perseverance and graces to uphold you and draw others to you. You will see Him who is all Love, all Truth and all Purity. The Holy Spirit acting within and around you will give you Perseverance thus enabling you through prayer, fasting, good deeds and sacrifices to bring souls to Him for special graces.
As you repeatedly bring Jesus your hearts He will live in you more and more until finally you will start to resemble Him in heart, mind and spirit.
My children go often to the Sacraments for in your fallen world it is only these and the Will of my Son that will strengthen you and enable you to act as true apostles of His Love.
My children I cosset you in my Heart as I did my little baby son Jesus.
Mary"

Luke 23 v 44-49
44 It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, 45 while the sun’s light failed; and the curtain of the temple was torn in two. 46 Then Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.” Having said this, he breathed his last. 47 When the centurion saw what had taken place, he praised God and said, “Certainly this man was innocent.” 48 And when all the crowds who had gathered there for this spectacle saw what had taken place, they returned home, beating their breasts. 49 But all his acquaintances, including the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching these things.

Come to my Son Jesus on His Cross

Notes of meeting on 4 February 2020

Picture of a Cross on a hill faraway.
Mary says: "My children when your lives seem so complicated and your time seems to be frustrated with problems of life, come to my Son Jesus on His Cross, there all things can be put into perspective.
This is the time of Calvary, so open your hearts and let your heart be immolated to the Heart of Jesus, He will soothe your hearts and place within them the little cross which you must carry with love.
Every time you pray or when you feel alone know that Jesus is within you and remind yourself that Jesus put His Cross within you. If you were to be stripped of everything even your clothes my adversary could not take away your dignity as a child of God or the mark of Jesus' ownership over your lives.
My children the Cross is your altar come often and pray 'Thy Will be done'. His will be done in your lives and the lives of others. Every time you pray it will be as though with Christ my Son you lay down your life with Him.
Time is ever moving and Jesus requires your help to bring all sheep into the safe haven of His Sheepfold.
Pray for your shepherds and pray for those who's hearts seem to be so lost.
Mary."

1 Corinthians 4
Think of us in this way, as servants of Christ and stewards of God’s mysteries. Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy. But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by any human court. I do not even judge myself. I am not aware of anything against myself, but I am not thereby acquitted. It is the Lord who judges me. Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then each one will receive commendation from God. I have applied all this to Apollos and myself for your benefit, brothers and sisters, so that you may learn through us the meaning of the saying, “Nothing beyond what is written,” so that none of you will be puffed up in favour of one against another. For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you received it, why do you boast as if it were not a gift? Already you have all you want! Already you have become rich! Quite apart from us you have become kings! Indeed, I wish that you had become kings, so that we might be kings with you! For I think that God has exhibited us apostles as last of all, as though sentenced to death, because we have become a spectacle to the world, to angels and to mortals. 10 We are fools for the sake of Christ, but you are wise in Christ. We are weak, but you are strong. You are held in honour, but we in disrepute. 11 To the present hour we are hungry and thirsty, we are poorly clothed and beaten and homeless, 12 and we grow weary from the work of our own hands. When reviled, we bless; when persecuted, we endure; 13 when slandered, we speak kindly. We have become like the rubbish of the world, the dregs of all things, to this very day. 14 I am not writing this to make you ashamed, but to admonish you as my beloved children. 15 For though you might have ten thousand guardians in Christ, you do not have many fathers. Indeed, in Christ Jesus I became your father through the gospel. 16 I appeal to you, then, be imitators of me. 17 For this reason I sent you Timothy, who is my beloved and faithful child in the Lord, to remind you of my ways in Christ Jesus, as I teach them everywhere in every church. 18 But some of you, thinking that I am not coming to you, have become arrogant. 19 But I will come to you soon, if the Lord wills, and I will find out not the talk of these arrogant people but their power. 20 For the kingdom of God depends not on talk but on power. 21 What would you prefer? Am I to come to you with a stick, or with love in a spirit of gentleness?
