I write with all urgency, especially to those who have not come to complete conversion, embracing the Immaculate Heart of Jesus.
I speak to all peoples, including my own self-chastsement, for taking too much of our spiritual lives for granted. I think of St. Theresa of Liseux and her unceasing begging of Jesus to put more on her, fir she didn't feel she had suffered enough to be worthy of heaven. Most of us, however, want the easy way. We attend Mass once per week, some go to confession, some do not; but most importantly, our relationships with Our Heavenly Mother, and the Father, God can only improve if WE dedicate our very lives to them and bring them fully into our lives by praying unceasingly.
I know of no other faith that has so many prayers for us to enlist when we need comfort, to give thanks, or for the benefit of those whom we love.
In the coming days, months and years, I make a personal plea of urgency to increase your prayer time. For in my opinion, formed from much research, we are already in the end times, and I believe that I will experience it all in my lifetime, your lifetime. I can feel it in my heart. I can hear it in our Mother's pleas fir everyone to please make haste to come to conversion. I can see prophecy being fulfilled. I hear cries for more LOVE for Jesus, God, our Mother, all the Saints and Angels, for our families, fir the stranger on the street who has no home, no food. Come forth and be ministers to others and bring them ever closer to Jesus.
For time is moving faster every day. There is not much time left. Please heed my words and change yourself, members of your family (pray together, read Scripture together), and bear your sufferings gratefully because they are truly Graces from God. There is nothing you can know, think or do that God didn't see it in you first.
Say the Rosary daily, and also the Prayer of St. Michael, the Archangel daily. Following is the story of how this prayer came to exist. It is terribly unfortunate that Vatican II all but did away with this most vital prayer. This, along with many changes in the Mass under Vatican II that conflict with the very basics of our faith as it was founded. Hive it a read, copy it, memorize if you can, carry it with you and repeat it SINCERELY and PRAYERFULLY EVERY DAY as you do your Rosary. The below prayer is the short version.
One day, after celebrating Mass, the aged Pope Leo XIII was in conference with the Cardinals when suddenly he sank to the floor in a deep swoon. Physicians who hastened to his side could find no trace of his pulse and feared that he had expired. However, after a short interval the Holy Father regained consciousness and exclaimed with great emotion: "Oh, what a horrible picture I have been permitted to see!"
He had been shown a vision of evil spirits who had been released from Hell and their efforts to destroy the Church. But in the midst of the horror the archangel St. Michael appeared and cast Satan and his legions into the abyss of hell. Soon afterwards Pope Leo XIII composed the prayer to Saint Michael.
The well-known short version of this prayer follows in English. The Pope ordered this prayer to be recited daily after Low Mass in all the churches throughout the Catholic world. However this practice was, unfortunately, almost completely swept away in the 1960s by liturgical changes made in the wake of Vatican Council II.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.Most Lovingly in Jesus Christ,
