Listening Session

8/16/2020

*   You please Me my children. I am with you now as I dwell in the praises of my children.

*   There is nothing more joyful to me than the praise of those who worship me.

*   A Reflection:  –   Praise brings Christ closer to us and allows the Holy Spirit to teach and guide us.

*   Wait upon the word and be satisfied with what you have received.

 

*   Fear not. I come in love to console, to heal, and give you life more abundantly. Fear me not.

*  I am the God of all creation. I cherish all of you, for you have been fearfully and wonderfully made.

*   I come before you as one who loves. Receive my love. Adore me and worship me for I am holy.

*   I have come so that you may have abundant life.

*   A Reflection:  –   We come to the throne of grace with the Son who is the source of life.

 

*   Be Still and listen often. Share with me the joys and concerns of your heart. Am I not your best friend?

*   Do not be afraid, hold nothing back that I give you to share. I want to speak to you and guide you and have a relationship with you.

*   I love you today and always.

*   My children, your praise is joyful to me. Be still and come to me in the interior life of your heart. Spend time with me. I have much to teach you. I love each of you dearly. There is much to do, and I want to continue to prepare you for your calling.

*   Everyone has the discernment they need to serve Me. Do you see the distinction between good and evil? This distinction is real and separates us. I have light that is to shine on those who are lost and in need of understanding. This light has come, for you are the light. Go into the world, moment by moment, step by step as I lead you.

 

*   There is much to do my little ones. You must step out and follow my Word. Come to me all of you who are troubled, and I will give you rest.

 

*   A Vision Received:   An image of us in the boat where it is safe and comfortable. There is risk involved when we step out, but Jesus is there with his right hand to help us, if we allow him.

*   I have empowered you to follow and I will continue to empower you as you follow.

*   Step out in faith, as I hold you by your right hand.

*   Demonic spirits are real. The battle has begun. There is a dominion of darkness, but it will be removed. The victory is in sight. It is a victory of love. It is the victory of Jesus with all of those who come to him.

*   The time is coming for change. You all will be changed and so will the world. Know that I have it.

*   Sacrificial love. That is the joy I give. Look up high. I am raised on high. My desire is peace for all who will receive. I reign over all of my creation. My dominion endures forever.

DAY 1 – HOLY MARY, HELP US TO STRIVE FOR PERFECTION!

GOD’S WORD
“So be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (Matthew 4:48)
HEROES’ WORDS
“If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world ablaze!” -St. Catherine of Siena
“This is the very perfection of a man, to find out his own imperfections.” -St. Augustine
“To live is to change, and to be perfect is to have changed often.” -Bl. John Henry Cardinal Newman
“He who climbs never stops going from beginning to beginning, through beginnings that have no end. He never stops desiring what he already knows.” -St. Gregory of Nissa
“Let us begin in earnest to work out our salvation, for no one will do it for us, since even he himself, who made us without ourselves, will not save us without ourselves.” -St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
MEDITATION
“All Christians in any state or walk of life are called to the fullness of Christian life and to the perfection of charity.” All are called to holiness: “Be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (CCC 2013)
Spiritual progress tends toward ever more intimate union with Christ. This union is called “mystical” because it participates in the mystery of Christ through the sacraments – “the holy mysteries” – and, in him, in the mystery of the Holy Trinity. God calls us all to this intimate union with him, even if the special graces or extraordinary signs of this mystical life are granted only to some for the sake of manifesting the gratuitous gift given to all. (CCC 2014)
The way of perfection passes by way of the Cross. There is no holiness without renunciation and spiritual battle. Spiritual progress entails the ascesis and mortification that gradually lead to living in the peace and joy of the Beatitudes. (CCC 2015)
PRAY A ROSARY
Choose either:
  1. Rosary of the Day: Joyful Mysteries
  2. Traditional 54 Day Rotation: Joyful Mysteries
PRAYERS FOR TRADITIONAL 54 DAY NOVENA
THE JOYFUL MYSTERIES OF THE HOLY ROSARY

In petition (first 27 days): Hail, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, my Mother Mary, hail! At thy feet I humbly kneel to offer thee a Crown of Roses, snow white buds to remind thee of thy joys, each bud recalling to thee a holy mystery, each 10 bound together with my petition for a particular grace. O Holy Queen, dispenser of God’s graces, and Mother of all who invoke thee, thou canst not look upon my gift and fail to see its binding. As thou receivest my gift, so wilt thou receive my petition; from thy bounty thou wilt give me the favor I so earnestly and trustingly seek. I despair of nothing that I ask of thee. Show thyself my Mother!
In thanksgiving (last 27 days): Hail, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, my Mother Mary, hail! At thy feet I gratefully kneel to offer thee a Crown of Roses snow white buds to remind thee of thy joys each bud recalling to thee a holy mystery; each ten bound together with my petition for a particular grace. O Holy Queen, Dispenser of God’s graces. and Mother of all who invoke thee! thou canst not look upon my gift and fail to see its binding. As thou receivest my gift, so wilt thou receive my thanksgiving; from thy bounty thou hast given me the favor I so earnestly and trustingly sought. I despaired not of what I asked of thee, and thou hast truly shown thyself my Mother.

In petition (first 27 days): Sweet Mother Mary, I offer thee this spiritual communion to bind my bouquets in a wreath to place upon thy brow. O my Mother! Look with favor upon my gift, and in thy love obtain for me (specify request, see below). Hail Mary …
