This is the year of building up and tearing down. Mankind will be shown in no uncertain terms his dependency upon God

January 31, 2017

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"The doorway to My Immaculate Heart is the Gateway to the New Jerusalem and the Gateway to peace. My Heart is Holy Love. There is no room herein for dissension or violation of law and order."

"Each soul is being called to live within the confines of Holy Love - My Heart. There is no path to Jesus' Sacred Heart apart from this. I have come to give you the Truth."

January 30, 2017

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"These days people take up causes, demonstrate and march for almost any reason. The real issue of what is good and what is evil is ignored. Up front and center stage is whose feelings are being hurt, whose rights are being violated. In Truth, God has the right to take dominion over His Creation and therefore every situation."

"Most often God's Will is left out of the equation. People protest everything from who won the election to climate change. This is all wasted effort which would be better spent in prayer. Carrying signs and congregating in large groups will not change things."

"The flavor of the world is changing from dependence upon God to dependence upon human effort, which in the end will prove to be quite a demise. God continues to allow Me to come here* in an attempt to draw people back to reality. Please listen."

St. Thomas Aquinas says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"I have come to help you understand why trust is laid upon the foundation of humility. When you trust someone, you have confidence in their ability to accomplish something. In the case of God's Deciding Will, you trust God to weave together the right graces and circumstances to accomplish His good. To rely on this, means you recognize your own weakness and the necessity of God's intervention."

"When people trust only in themselves and their own human effort, God steps back and the degree of His assistance is weakened. Nothing is accomplished outside of God's Will. The more the soul acknowledges his dependency upon God, the greater his achievement in the world."

January 28, 2017

St. Thomas Aquinas says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"The Sixth Chamber of the United Hearts is complete immersion in God's Divine Will. This can only be achieved through acceptance of God's Deciding Will in the present moment. That is to say, the soul accepts whatever happens in the present moment as God's decision. This surrender takes more than trust. It takes deep humility. The soul that continues to insist in his own way is not surrendering to God's Deciding Will."

"God chooses only the best for each soul towards his own salvation and sanctification. Very often it is a cross which brings the soul closer and deeper into the United Hearts, if the soul cooperates with the cross. This is not to say you do not take pain relievers if needed, or you do not try to avoid situations or people who destroy your peace. It does mean that you do not give into anger or frustration because of the cross."

"Allow God to decide for you in humility. Complaining is a sign you have not accepted God's decisions for you. Ask Our Lady and the angels for the grace of acceptance."

January 27, 2017

St. Thomas Aquinas says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"You are asking about God's Deciding Will. No one acts in thought, word or deed without first deciding to do so. It is the same with God. His Deciding Will embraces His Permitting Will and His Ordaining Will. Whatever He permits or ordains is His Deciding Will. Therefore, His Deciding Will is His Divine Will in action. It is the course of action of all grace, human acts, and choices good or bad. God permits bad choices as He respects free will. However, He always allows grace its moment of intervention."

"When someone decides, they choose. So it is with God's Deciding Will. He chooses what grace to send where and just how to intervene towards man's welfare."

"I hope you understand this complicated yet simple concept now."

January 26, 2017

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"I have been sent to earth for two reasons today. First of all, I wish to congratulate President Trump for blocking federal funding of abortion. This is a big step in moral recovery. It has been too easy for people to blindly go along with the legal system and general popular opinion."

"The next reason I have been sent to you is to reveal to the world the great sword which pierces Our United Hearts. It is an error unlike any other. It is the sin of apathy. This is the attitude which embraces lack of interest in salvation and personal holiness. Jesus does not intrude upon a soul bent upon his own way. He invites the soul to see his errors. It is always up to the soul to respond with his free will."

"Lack of love of God leads to lack of trying to please God. Neglect in trying to please God is the foundation of apathy. Selfless love is the building block of deeper union with God. It is a translucent love that reflects the Will of God. All are called to selfless love."

January 25, 2017

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"Every teardrop I shed carries with it an unborn baby soon to be exterminated on the altar of abortion. All the potential of every unborn child either blossoms as the child is born or dies with the unborn baby. This is why I continue to reiterate that an end to legalized abortion would change the future of the world."

"To date, many would-be prominent world leaders have been aborted. Great scientists who would have discovered cures for many diseases prevalent today were never given their first breath in the world. Religious leaders who would have clearly upheld Tradition were aborted, as well."

"You see why I weep and why each tear embraces an unborn child. Weep with Me. Pray with Me. This is a battle unlike any other."

January 25, 2017

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"I know you are in pain, My daughter, but this is part of God's Deciding Will. Just accept whatever the present moment allots you, for therein lies your surrender. God sees the whole picture - good and evil. A meritorious sacrifice lies, for the most part, hidden in the heart."

"Allow God to decide for you what is best."

January 24, 2017

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"These days, boundaries are transgressed with reckless abandon. Every sort of compromise is readily embraced. I am not speaking merely of geographical borders such as this country's southern border. I refer to the greater evil of compromised morals which oppose the Truth of sin."

"Apathy towards one's own salvation has become common place. The Commandments were given to be obeyed always in every present moment. Your salvation is in the present moment. You cannot claim salvation once, then embrace sin, and expect to be saved. The state of your soul at the moment of death is never compromised by Jesus but stands before My Son clothed in Truth."

"Pray every present moment infuses your heart and the heart of the world in Truth, leaving behind every form of compromise."

January 23, 2017

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"The reason people are confused as to the difference between good and evil is they allow popular opinion to define good - not God's Laws. These days, people do not love God more than their own will. It is, therefore, not as important to please God as it is to please themselves. As the world in general approves of these illicit values, it appears acceptable to embrace evil with an erroneous heart rather than stand for the Truth. These are the times which demand courage in the Truth."

"You must not allow popular opinion to dictate approval of entertainment, dress codes, moral values, government policies and every type of behavior. Thousands, millions may accept sin, but it is still sin. When the soul stands before Me in judgment, it will not matter how many others committed the same sin. You must begin to make moral judgments based upon Holy Love. Ask for the grace to love Me more than yourselves."

Read 2 Timothy 3:1-5+

Synopsis: These are the tribulations of the last days the heart of the world has entered as men have become lovers of self, worshipping the gods of money, power and the status of pride, arrogance, abuse, disobedience, profanity, ingratitude, slander, licentiousness, violence, and hating good. They have become treacherous, pompous, lovers of pleasures (of the flesh) rather than of God as they make a pretense of being religious, but abuse it's power and authority. As the Remnant Faithful, do not listen to them, but stay clear of their influence.

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of stress. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, inhuman, implacable, slanderers, profligates, fierce, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding the form of religion but denying the power of it. Avoid such people.

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"It is important now that your nation pull together with one mind so that a singular effort can be made in defeating evil. All division is weakness and serves the agenda of evil. The enemy clothes himself in confusion and controversy in the hopes of slowing the victory of Truth."

"Every present moment holds the choice between good and evil - victory or defeat. Satan tries to obscure these choices. You as prayer warriors of Holy Love must represent the Truth to those around you, making each one's choices more clear."

"These are the times when standing up for the Truth is often very unpopular. Therefore, pray for courage. Ask your angels for the strength of courage to correct evil and bring justice to victory."

Read Philippians 2:1-2+

Synopsis: Be unified in Holy Love and Holy Humility with one mind and one heart.

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any incentive of love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.

January 21, 2017 -Anniversary of Mary, Protectress of the Faith

Blessed Mother is here* as Protectress of the Faith. She says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"Dear children, please know that I am always with you, standing next to you, when you pray the rosary. I am ready to defend your faith against confusion and many obstacles. Learn to call upon Me under the title 'Protectress of the Faith' - one of My most powerful intercessory titles."

"Tonight, I am blessing you with My Blessing of Holy Love."

* The apparition site of Maranatha Spring and Shrine.

January 21, 2017 - Anniversary of Mary, Protectress of the Faith

Our Lady comes as Protectress of the Faith. She says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"Today, I come to you as in decades past under a title never accepted or recognized by hierarchy, as it was deemed unneccesary.* Yet today, some of the very ones who opposed this title have lost their faith. I come to you under this title as your faith is a treasure greater than any priceless gem, and it needs protection. People in general do not value their faith and are very careless - exposing it to every sort of challenge. If you could see as I do, the common disregard for the importance of a sacramental life and the numbers of sacrileges committed daily at Communion, you would flee to My Arms and seek My Protection. These days, many people receive My Son under pretense and not in a state of grace, as they should be."

"Liberal thinking has caused shipwreck to the faith, as people try to change the faith to fit their agenda. In that way, they affirm lukewarm faith and lessen the importance of the Traditions the Church was founded upon."

"Today, I come to you once again under this title seeking your recognition of its necessity. You will never use this title but that I will come to your aid in every necessity, but especially in battles of faith. This title is Heaven's gift to the world during these troubled times. Please accept it and use it."

* Note: After checking with a theologian from the diocese, the bishop rejected Our Lady's request for the title 'Protectress of the Faith' stating that there already were too many devotions to Blessed Mother and the saints. Our Lady requested this title from the Cleveland bishop in 1987.

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

I (Maureen) see Jesus holding a large container filled with some type of fluid. He says: "Imagine that this liquid is the Truth. You must carry it with you always to live in the Truth. You say, 'But it is too heavy. Let me pour some of it out so that it is easier to carry.' That is a compromise. That is what people do who try to change the Truth to make it easier to accept."

"Remember, you are not here to please man with your actions but God. God's Laws never change to accommodate people. People must change to abide by God's Laws. Pleasing and obeying God needs to be the priority of human existence. It is in this way, God will bring peace to all hearts."

Read 2 Timothy 4:1-5+

Synopsis: With all urgency, preach the Truth of the doctrines of the faith in season or out of season - reproving, entreating, and reputing with all patience by sound teaching, for there will come a time when not all will accept sound doctrines, but will follow their own desires by turning away from the Truth and accepting errant teachings and doctrines.

I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His Kingdom: preach the Word, be urgent in season and out of season, convince, rebuke, and exhort, be unfailing in patience and in teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, and will turn away from listening to the Truth and wander into myths. As for you, always be steady, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"When you try to impress people with your depth of virtue or personal holiness, you fail in humility. This is true of everyone. Remain humble and prefer the background. If I desire the depths of your soul be revealed, I will reveal them in My own way."

"Selfless love, that all are called to fulfill, does not seek importance in the eyes of man but only seeks recognition in the Eyes of God."

"It is the humble, hidden soul that I am closest to. This is the soul that I embrace and inspire."

January 18, 2017

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"The greatest grace a soul can receive is the grace of My Mercy. It is, like any grace, up to the soul to accept or reject it. If people really understood My Love and forgiveness they would not question My Mercy. I reject no repentant heart."

"Every sin is a departure from Holy Love. My Mercy draws the soul back safely into the harbor of Love. Every kindness performed out of love for another strengthens My Mercy in the soul. My Divine Mercy is the bond which draws mankind closer into union with Our United Hearts."

"Trust in My Mercy always."

January 17, 2017

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"It is often during the most difficult situations that people do not rely on grace, which is the solution to their problems. They become overwhelmed by the problem at hand and try to solve it with human effort apart from God. But grace steps in amidst turmoil and rescues the most desperate."

"Those who learn to wait upon and to trust in grace are more at peace than those who rely on their own efforts alone. Grace can change circumstances, making situations more acceptable and easier to cope with. Grace can change people's attitudes and negotiate peace in hearts full of conflict."

"When you arise in the morning, ask your guardian angel for all the grace you need to live out the day in Holy Love. His job is to help you in such a way."

January 16, 2017

Jesus is here with His Heart exposed. He says: "I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"My brothers and sisters, let us celebrate together, this victory of the new government stepping into place in your nation. It is a victory of good over evil."

"Tonight, I'm blessing you with My Blessing of Divine Love."

January 16, 2017

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"A divided nation is a weakened nation. Those who oppose the new administration stepping into office have chosen to weaken your nation. This is the hour which calls for unity in Truth. It is not the hour appropriate for political ambition. There are enough problems - domestic and global - which demand resolution without a continued debate concerning the worthiness of Present-elect Trump."

"Accept God's Will as the Light of Truth. Allow God to work through this new administration. In all things avoid a negative spirit. This is the spirit that complains and criticizes. Healthy criticism brings about healthy change. Negative criticism is expressed in tear down and divide. Know the difference."

January 15, 2017

Our Lady comes dressed in peach and light blue. She says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"This morning when you got up, you saw the sunrise over the frozen lake. The sky was a peach color and the same color was reflected upon the frozen lake. It was spectacular, wasn't it?"

I [Maureen] answer, "Yes."

"In a similar way, I pray that these Messages of Holy and Divine Love* are reflected in hearts around the world. I pray that there is little difference between the Messages and what is in Hearts."

"You have been asking Me the best way to cooperate with grace per My Message yesterday. The heart which accepts everything in the present moment offers complete surrender to God's Will - then grace can step in and take over. These days, most people prefer their own efforts above and beyond God's Grace."

* The Messages of Holy and Divine Love at Maranatha Spring and Shrine.

January 14, 2017

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"Dear children, you must understand that the presence of God's Grace is always in your lives. It helps you to discover problems and to resolve them. When you cooperate with God's Grace you are the strongest. You can never find solutions to any situation outside of grace that will be lasting. God allows problems to arise in each one's life to call the soul back to his dependence upon God and His Grace."

"Knowing these things should help you to realize that trying to resolve any issue apart from God is fruitless. Do not then, presume to solve wars, climate change, disease and poverty merely on a human level. That is a waste of time. You must learn to call upon God's Grace as an ally in every solution - then watch for things to change and God's Will to take over in every situation."

January 13, 2017

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"While many concern themselves with the consequences of global warming, few are concerned for the dangerous path of spiritual apathy the world pursues. The dangers of such a path could befall the world at any moment and depend greatly upon God's Merciful Patience."

"As these dangers are not even acknowledged, nothing is done to correct the problem. Few there are who see the reality of the situation as it exists. God called man first to love Him with all his heart and his neighbor as himself. These days valuable time is spent on concern for rising temperatures instead of rising responsibility to God's Laws."

"Redirect your focus on pleasing God - your Creator - instead of the dangers of global warming. It is God who created your environment."

January 12, 2017

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"Every sin is based upon disrespect for God's Law and the subsequent welfare of others. Whole ideologies are founded on such hypocrisy."

"There are laws, modes of dress and behavior which are displeasing to My Son. These are all reinforced by mass media. The chilling cost of this is not only the loss of souls, but increasing threats of war, violence and disease. As it is, mankind is more satisfied in following his own laws than God's Commandments."

"My coming to you these days is the opportunity to change - to return to God. I do not offer immediate gratification, but hope for the future. Every sin weakens the bond between Heaven and earth and tempts God's Justice. Spend each present moment in union with these Truths. Console the Mournful Heart of My Son by your efforts. It will make a difference."

January 11, 2017

St. Francis de Sales says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"Holy Love is a vehicle of God's Grace. It is necessary for hearts to open to love for grace to be most effective. This is why this Mission of Holy Love* is in the world today - so that hearts can respond to grace and change. This is the way world problems can submit to grace and be resolved. Every other path, which circumvents God's Grace, is not viable."

"Holy Love is the way, the hope and the means of world peace through God's Grace."

* The ecumenical Mission of Holy and Divine Love at Maranatha Spring and Shrine.

January 10, 2017

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"Entrust the future to the grace of My Immaculate Heart, for herein lies the solution to every difficulty - be it personal, national or worldwide."

"I have not chosen this time or generation for this Revelation of Holy Love. The Eternal Father has chosen it. He chose the way the Messages* would be imparted to the world, the messenger and this particular Diocese.** He foresaw every obstacle and difficulty that would arise, the lies, the calumny, the faithful who would lend support and each one who would oppose Heaven's Intervention. The Father has not changed His Mind, but perseveres amidst every crisis of Faith. You must do the same without regard for other's opinions. Always stand united in the Truth."

"This Diocese is a microcosm of the woes within the Church, where Truth is too often hard to pinpoint and act upon. Turn to Me, your Mother. My Grace will assist you in choosing Holy Love."

* The Messages of Holy and Divine Love at Maranatha Spring and Shrine.

January 9, 2017

St. Francis de Sales says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"God has a plan for each soul born into the world. If the soul chooses contrary to God's Divine Plan, God redesigns the soul's destiny - always calling each soul unto Himself."

"The sands of time run out for some before they are able to choose wisely. Even as I speak to you, thousands are slipping to their perdition. These are the ones who aspire to please themselves ahead of God. This disordered self-love obstructs the way to salvation."

"Selfless love stops at nothing to please God first and neighbor as self. This is why Holy Love is defined in the world today. Jesus' life in the world was the perfect example of selfless love."

January 8, 2017

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"If you hasten to your conversion out of fear for what the future may hold, you are accomplishing very little. In Holy Love, your conversion needs to be based upon love of God above all else and your neighbor as yourself. This needs to be the governance of the converted heart in every present moment. All that detracts from this goal is from the enemy."

"Allow your hearts to fully participate in a perfect conversion. It is in this way, you can assist others along the same path."

January 6, 2017

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"Do not be dismayed that there are so many unbelievers in regards to this Ministry.* I give My Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity all over the world, every day, and yet, how many believe in that? I try to draw people into My Heart through grace after grace, but I find no relief from My unattended Love for all mankind."

"Do not be discouraged by the numbers of unbelievers. Rather, be encouraged to pray for hearts to be enlightened as to the Truth. It is only then that seemingly good people will stop opposing the Truth that is given here."**

RATIONALIZATION

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"The soul who rationalizes good to be evil and evil to be good is compromised and has compromised his salvation. You have seen this in politics, Church circles, education and the mass media to name a few. Sanctimony is the bad fruit of such rationalization. Such a one feels he has the Truth and no longer discerns."

"Rationalization is a grave sin which grieves the Mournful Heart of Jesus. This sin masquerades as good and misleads the soul into the trap of self-righteousness. So few recognize this sin as a sin. You have a whole audience of unbelievers in these Messages* that testifies to what I am saying. Such as these accept only negatives about the Ministry** with little or no effort to discover the Truth. Many, many graces go unattended as a result."

"The enemy is rationalization. Your defense is the Truth. Always represent the Truth."

* The Messages of Holy and Divine Love at Maranatha Spring and Shrine.
** The ecumenical Ministry of Holy and Divine Love at Maranatha Spring and Shrine.

January 4, 2017

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"Every Age under God's Creation has a season. There is a season of building and of tearing down. A season of victory and of defeat. There is a time of trial and a time of mercy. There is a time of aggression and of peace. I invite you to see that every season coincides with its rival. Problems do not exist by themselves, but as the by-product of other difficulties. Truth is the winnowing fan, which ultimately sorts out right from wrong - good from evil."

"To recognize the Truth in every season, the soul must surrender his own will to the Will of the Father. Your acceptance of every present moment is your surrender. Surrender does not weaken you, but strengthens you in God's Plan. Surrender is the doorway to grace. It is the path of victory over Satan. The Light along the pathway of surrender is Truth itself, which leads to the New Jerusalem."

January 3, 2017

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"I have come to point out that compromise takes over the heart when untruth is accepted as Truth. This leaves open so many passageways for Satan to enter. In today's world, people have chosen compromise so willingly that now they do not recognize Truth from fiction."

"Jesus does not concede to illogical reasoning nor pander to emotions. He longs to capture each heart in Holy Love which represents the Truth of the Commandments."

"When each soul stands before Jesus in judgment, it will not matter what everyone else believed - only what was in the soul's heart at the moment of judgment. Hopefully this would be the Truth of Holy Love."

January 1, 2017

Solemnity of Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God
New Year's Message

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"This is the year of building up and tearing down. Mankind will be shown in no uncertain terms his dependency upon God. Treasures will be reevaluated. Certain staid institutions will prove untrustworthy. Your new president will be tested on many fronts. This nation will have as its consolation a government working for the people and of the people."

"The solution to every difficulty is, of course, total surrender to God's Divine Will in and through Holy Love. This cooperation between the heart of man and the Heart of God draws upon God's Grace in a most powerful way."

"Mankind must not focus on God fulfilling his needs so much as man fulfilling God's needs. To please God is to change the future of the world."

"Until governments, legal systems, economic systems and mass media realize these Truths, you will have a world in turmoil."

Read Colossians 3:23+

Whatever your task, work heartily, as serving the Lord and not men.
