Mary speaks: My children, I am Mary your Mother, you have been given this writing by the messenger so that you will more fully understand the mission I began at Fatima, which mission will soon reach completion.
I love you, I am Mary your Mother.
Messenger: My whole life is spent in learning to love. Our life is lived in relationships. For all eternity we will exist in love in Him in union with all others.
I am overwhelmed with love. It is the love that we have that makes us most like Him.
God gives us special relationships with one another, for example, a husband with his wife, a father or mother with a child. I speak now as a mother. Within my womb, I bore my children. It was God's gift to me to learn to surrender my life to caring for another. In the beginning, it was nausea, and care for myself for the sake of the baby. When the baby was born, the baby was dependent on me for life. I nursed the baby and continued to provide this life through the milk God gave me. I learned to put aside myself and answer the needs of the baby.
All of our relationships revolve around this give and take. As a mother I had to do so much for the baby. As the children grew, I had to surrender more to God and do less myself, until that day when I had to let go of control over the child's life and rely totally on God.
Now I have learned through the gradual process of surrender, the power of giving my children to God--from the earliest moments of total helplessness, to the moments of surrender when they were adults and on their own. But I never owned them anyway. Early in their little lives, I took them to church to be baptized and in Baptism they shared in His divine life. But God created them and made me their mother through the conceiving of them in my womb. He used me as the instrument to give them life and form them. He used me to help them as infants and they were still dependent on that life support, the milk, while I breast-fed them. I was the instrument He used to give life.
Christ Who is the Way, the Truth and the Life was conceived in the womb of Mary through the power of the Holy Spirit. His little body was formed there within her body, and I believe that after His birth she too breast-fed Him. He is Life, yet He humbles Himself and is formed, the Almighty God, in the womb of a human person.
This is love, that God gives us so much, that He gives us a share in His life.
If one can understand how my body was used as an instrument to bring life to my baby, one can more fully comprehend how Mary, who conceived through the power of the Holy Spirit, could be the spiritual Mother to help bring that life of divine grace to us her children. She is the Mother of the Christ-life. I was the mother of my child's life. Mary is the Mother of the spiritual life. We are formed within her spiritual womb, her Immaculate Heart, to be most like Christ.
How could my child have survived without me, as the child was formed within me? I was the instrument He used to give life to the child. I was the mother, but He truly gave me the child. That child was a child of God, formed within me.
We received our physical life from our parents and it goes back to the first parents Adam and Eve. We received our tainted fallen human nature from our first parents.
This disobedience to God caused the whole human race to suffer. The New Adam, the New Eve came. The New Adam came to save this sinful race.
The offense against God is paid by the price of the Blood of the Son of God, for who could make adequate recompense to God for such a sin? It would take God-made-Man to pay the price. The Father sent His only begotten Son into the world through the power of the Holy Spirit to pay the price for the sin of Adam.
We see the scene of the New Adam hanging on that tree, the tree of life, giving Himself by a garden and that woman, now standing beneath the tree He hangs on, the pure and Immaculate human person, the Mother of this new life, the Mother of Divine Grace, as she is entitled in the Litany to the Blessed Mother.
Let us look at these titles entrusted to her in the litany.
Man is so foolish in his ways, for instead of recognizing the great offense committed against God in the garden through disobedience, and instead of growing in strict obedience to His laws, through the generations men so often continually disobey and offend God.
God in His great love and mercy gives us one spotless Virgin, one Mother, all pure and holy, one Immaculate human person, the Mother of the Savior, Jesus Christ and so many have ignored her, defiled her in her Motherhood, virginity and Immaculate Conception. Many of her children do not honor her images, and they teach their children to hate the Virgin Mary Mother of God. [This is why there are five first Saturdays. It is because of the 5 blasphemies against Mary. Great grace is given to the souls that observe the first Saturday devotion. This devotion was given at Fatima. It is one of the things Our Lady of Fatima has told us to do. This is why Mary appeared on the 5th of the month 14 times and then Jesus appeared dead on the cross, because they ignored her. Today we still honor Mary on the 5th of the month from her image site in Florida.]
It is in reciting the Litany to the Blessed Virgin that we make great reparation to her Immaculate Heart. Where she is blasphemed in her Motherhood, Virginity and Immaculate Conception, we give her great honor in her titles as Mother of_______, Mother of _______, Virgin most ________ and all the other titles showing how she truly is the Vessel of honor and Singular vessel of devotion. She is the Tower of David, Tower of ivory, House of gold, Ark of the Covenant, the Gate of heaven.
She is the gatekeeper, the one who opens the way to the depths of Christ's Heart. For in going through her Immaculate Heart, we can unite most intimately to the all holy God. In the Heart of Christ, we are led to the Father in the Spirit. She is the Singular vessel of devotion. Mary was conceived Immaculate without sin. She is the Morning Star for the children walking in the dark night. She is the Cause of our joy and the Seat of wisdom.
For the Holy Spirit works within her Immaculate Heart to give us great lights and insights into the divine mysteries. In the Heart of Christ is found the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
The more we dwell in her Heart, her Immaculate Heart, the more we sinners can dwell in the depth of His Heart. Oh Singular vessel of devotion! Oh Mystical rose, wherein are found treasures and insights into the mysteries. For He reveals Himself to those who love Him and it says:
At that time Jesus exclaimed, 'I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children. Yes, Father, for that is what it pleased you to do. Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, just as no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
Messenger: Yes we are children, receiving insight and lights from the Holy Spirit in the spiritual womb of Mary.
We can dwell in the Heart of the Woman, the Immaculate one, the Lady Clothed as the Sun and receive the insights into the divine mysteries.
To the children the revelations are made, to the children of Mary.
The rosary is really a child's prayer. We pray Hail Mary, Hail Mary (Mary our Mother). Our Father, we implore God the Father and Mary our Mother to hear us. Jesus has said the Holy Spirit reveals great insights into the mysteries in the rosary.
Oh Mary, my beloved holy Mother. Oh Mother of God. Oh Comforter of the afflicted and Refuge of sinners.
And yes, we end the litany to Mary with the title Queen, for she will be the Queen of all hearts and Jesus will be the King of all hearts. Her Immaculate Heart will triumph.
The rosary begins with the angel, the Incarnation. Christ takes on flesh through the power of the Holy Spirit and it ends with the Coronation of Mary, Queen of heaven and earth.
Mary is not recognized by many of her children on earth as the Queen.
Soon the great era of peace will come. It was promised by Our Lady of Fatima, we must obey her, she is the Queen of peace.
In the litany to Mary, it ends with the Lamb of God.
The Lamb, it says in Revelation.
because the Lamb who is at the heart of the throne will be their shepherd and will guide them to springs of living water; and God will wipe away all tears from their eyes.'
Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.
Then a voice came from the throne; it said, 'Praise our God, you servants of his and those who fear him, small and great alike.' And I heard what seemed to be the voices of a huge crowd, like the sound of the ocean or the great roar of thunder, answering, 'Alleluia! The reign of the Lord our God Almighty has begun; let us be glad and joyful and give glory to God, because this is the time for the marriage of the Lamb. His bride is ready, and she has been able to dress herself in dazzling while linen, because her linen is made of the good deeds of the saints.' The angel said, 'Write this, "Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb," ' and he added, 'These words of God are true.'
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, the first heaven and the first earth had disappeared now, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride dressed for her husband. Then I heard a loud voice call from the throne, 'Look, here God lives among human beings. He will make his home among them; they will be his people, and he will be their God, God-with-them. He will wipe away all tears from their eyes, there will be no more death, and no more mourning or sadness or pain. The world of the past has gone.'
Then the One sitting on the throne spoke. 'Look, I am making the whole of creation new. Write this, "What I am saying is trustworthy and will come true." ' Then he said to me, 'It has already happened. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give water from the well of life free to anybody who is thirsty; anyone who proves victorious will inherit these things; and I will be his God and he will be my son.

You have been given the great gift from God to be in relationship with Him and with others in love. This is your journey here. The more you grow in maturity in relating in love, the more deeply will be your relationship with God and others for all eternity in love. LOVE is relationship. You will be most perfected in your ways of loving God, self and others by dwelling in Our Hearts. Your life must be spent in growing in more perfected ways of loving. Hell is total isolation and hate. Heaven is filled with love. You exist in heaven in great oneness and love. LOVE means oneness. All relationships should progress toward oneness. Although you may not be able to interact with those committing sin because it is detrimental to your spiritual life, you remain united to them and still love them and pray for them. When loving as God wills, the valleys will be leveled and the mountains made low, man will be united as one as the Father intended from the beginning. All must see themselves one with God, the saints and angels, souls in purgatory and all creatures of the earth. You may not mix with those that are not rooted in the truth, but you are very much united to them in your hearts through love and prayer. In heaven, all will know love. I loved all to My death on the cross. You must not see yourselves as divided from one another, you are brothers living in love. Love is oneness. In a loving heart there is not division. There is sorrow and pain, but not division with the other.
I wish the statue of the Sacred Heart with scepter and world and the statue of Our Lady of Fatima which are in St. Clare's Convent (Cincinnati) to be photographed and the picture to be placed here at the Florida site.
|Sacred Heart of Jesus with sceptre and world||Our Lady of Fatima|
