CHRISTMAS EVE FOR THE CHILDREN OF THE UNITED HEARTS

It is 9:00 a.m., Christmas Eve, 2019. There is a chill in the air as we await the birth of the Christ Child tonight at Midnight Mass, when we will join the monks of the Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance. We welcome the new monk, Br. William of Singapore. We greet my adopted cousin, the Abbot. We pray for the healing of holy Fr. Harold. We pray for the repose of the soul of Fr. John and Fr. Anthony, our friends who are watching us from heaven.

Before you get too busy wrapping last minute gifts, trimming the Christmas tree, or baking more Christmas cookies, let me remind you that today is the day to start your novena to Mary, the Mother of God, whose feast day is January 1, 2020. January 1st is also also the birthday of Nur-un-Nissa, who was born in Russia.

So, as I woke up early this morning at 4:00 a.m., late for the Trappists who pray in the 3:00 a.m. hour, I began to remember former Christmas Eves. One of my first memories of Christmas Eve was the year the Ashland brothers crashed a plane in our grove on our farm on Christmas Eve. Was my brother in the plane? I never saw the crashed plane. Dad must have been very upset or worried. Thank God, no one was hurt. Then too, there was the Christmas service in the old wooden church in Garner, Iowa. Dad always packed brown paper bags full of a shiny delicious red apple, chocolate covered peanuts, ribbon hard candy, and walnuts for each child. I think there may have been a dollar bill inside, or was that what we put in the klingle beetle? My handsome Cousin Billy always sang a beautiful song. Afterwards, we would drive home to the farm and open our presents sitting under the tree. We did not celebrate Santa Claus but the Birth of the Christ Child.

One Christmas Eve, we ate our usual oyster stew at Aunt Winnie and Uncle Bob’s pickle farm south of Clear Lake. All the aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins sat around the big dining room table. We ate chocolate cake for dessert according to Widow Brown’s famous recipe. That was the famous pickle farm where I washed the eggs from the chickens. My aunt and uncle always had a nifty car, one with little vases for flowers next to the side windows.

My favorite Christmas Eve may have been in Medjugorje, in Bosnia. Fr. Jozo told us how the people celebrated Christmas in their village. Each family would prepare a lamb and cook it outside over burning wood from the forest. We went to the outdoor Nativity Scene next to St. James on Christmas Eve where a live reenactment took place. I knew the parents of the newborn baby who had the role of the Christ Child.

Another favorite Christmas Eve memory was when my husband picked up my daughter at the Kansas City airport. While they journeyed home, I transformed the stone room of our farm house for our celebration. I set up a little tree with antique tin cookie cutters and flashing colored lights. During our evening dinner, my daughter and husband spoke in a Russian accent, gifting me with spasms of laughter. Her priest in New York was from Russia, as were many of her friends, so she had the accent down pat!

I am from a family of at least second, if not third generation of teachers, so you are not going to get off without some more homework. While driving up to this paradise-with-a-view-of-Mt. Shasta, I had an inspiration to ask you to join me in an association of souls devoted to the United Hearts. On August 15, 2015, I was invited to attend the meeting of prayer group leaders of the Children of the United Hearts. in North Ridgeville, Ohio at Maranatha Spring and Shrine. Although I was unable to attend the meeting, it is better late than never to share this blessing with you. In the New Year, 2020, I plan to introduce this monthly prayer meeting. So, let us begin:

DAILY PRAYERS OF THE CHILDREN OF THE UNITED HEARTS:

Consecration to the United Hearts:

Most Worthy, United Hearts of Jesus and Mary, I willingly consecrate myself this day to You. I surrender to you all I own, both interior and exterior.
Let my life be a continual hymn of praise to Your Most Holy United Hearts.
Take the victories and defeats of the moment into Your hearts.
Use them, as You need them, to bring about Your triumphant reign. Amen.

The Consecration of the Heart of the World to the United Hearts:

Most Compassionate United Hearts of the Most Holy Trinity and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, accept this, my prayer, on behalf of the heart of the world. Awaken the heart of the world to the Truth of the difference between good and evil.

Inspire each soul to consecrate their hearts and their lives to the United Hearts; thereby strengthening the heart of the world in this resolve.

We beg You, dear United Hearts, pour the grace of Your inspiration into the heart of the world, strengthening it in Truth and Holy Love. In this Heavenly Inspiration, draw the heart of the world into union with the Will of God. Amen.

These prayers will be followed by the Chaplet of the United Hearts, a Prayer to the United Hearts of Jesus and Mary, followed by the Angelus. Then, one 5-decade of the rosary will be prayed. The meeting can also include the reading of a message from holylove.org; prayers to the mournful heart of Jesus, and prayers for the unborn, especially the chaplet and rosary of the unborn.

With this, I greet you with all the love of the saints and angels in heaven on this holy of days, Christmas Eve, 2019. Amen

An Historic Day in the USA

Today is December 18, 2019, the day the Democratic party scheduled the articles of impeachment of the President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump, just in time to hand the American people a little Christmas gift before the Congress adjourns for their long, paid vacation. I watched an hour or more of the proceedings on FOX. As I watched the various Congress men and women from both parties, including the Speaker of the House, I had an important incite.

The very last words coming out of the mouth of Roger Stone, via a Skype interview by Alex Jones on inforwars.com, before his kangaroo court in D.C., and before his second and total gag rule was pronounced, said the following words when asked about President Trump, [The important thing to know is that his, (President Trump’s battle), is not just a battle between the Democrats and the Republicans.] (This is not an exact quote, but the gist of his statement.)
My insight today confirms Roger Stone’s warning.

The insight reveals that this is much more than the result of the far-left high-jacking of the Democratic party, as expressed this morning by one of the Republican Congressmen. It is one of the major battles on the planet earth in these End Times. This is a battle between the forces of Good and Evil. We know who is finally going to win this battle. Her Immaculate Heart will triumph over Satan, and Truth will win out. In the meantime, the USA represents one of the last Flames of Light, as it was established by the Founding Fathers. As one read the books on the life of President George Washington, we learned how he was guided in his mission to establish a nation under God, with liberty and justice for all. During the battles of the Revolution, Our Blessed Mother guided and blessed our first president, when the going got tough. He prayed for help and guidance and received it. This country was founded on Jewish and Christian values and teachings. It is the agenda of the Evil One to destroy this country, that was blessed and favored greatly by Our Lord.

In my lifetime, this very unique and special country has been threatened by the anti-Christ agenda of communism. Then, came the war in our country against chastity. Then came the law to allow the killing of a baby in a mother’s womb. Then came the money-making promotion of tobacco, alcohol, and finally illegal drugs. Then came the television and smart phone that averted the attention of the people of America away from God, books, musical instruments, table games, and healthy outdoor activities in nature. Consumerism was the name of the game. The various institutions were taken over by anti-Christ propaganda. Children’s text books in schools failed to teach real history. Jesus was outlawed from print in the textbooks. History was rewritten to put our country in a bad light. Laws were enacted so that teachers no longer had any authority in their classrooms. The young students could now sue the teacher who used discipline.
Sex education now begins in first grade in some public schools.

Colleges and university were even worse, for the most part. The professors were 90% leftist, teaching the gullible college students the foundations of communism, liberalism, relative morality, and more recently, a hatefulness for the USA and our political foundation.

Besides the threat of the anti-Christ communist agenda, we have been experiencing a ever-increasing jihad, the take over of a culture interiorly, without violence, by the infiltration of our education, government, and institutions. The population at large has not read the Koran and has no idea of the actual teachings promoted, for example, convert to Islam or else, (taxes or death.) We got a taste of the latter during 9-ll, but we have let down our guard and now even have voted in the squad to our congress and into various positions of power in Michigan. Minnesota, etc.

Freedom of religion is under attack in the USA, as is freedom of speech. The political correct norms of our current society are forcing Christians to be muzzled. The show-down came in 2015, due to the death of certain cartoonists in Europe. How dare you exercise your freedom of speech in a cartoon. We will show you. You will die. So, out of fear, most of Europe is now muzzled. The list of people in Europe who have been killed or otherwise silenced when using their God-given right of freedom of speech grows and grows. The case of Elizabeth Sabaditsch Wolff of Austria went all the way to the so-called “Supreme Court” in Strasbourg, France, where she has been fighting the anti-blasphemy laws in Austria. Her revealing story is carefully outlined in her recent book, “The Truth is No Defense”. The 1618 Resolution of the U.N. makes blasphemy laws universal. An anti-blasphemy law equals anything that a Muslim may not like.

Freedom of speech is being silence in the USA on line, in the press, and on television. Social media is totally controlled in Austria. There is no resistance anywhere in Europe. Out of fear of Islamic Terrorists, the people have become silent. The youth are more interested in Austria in climate change than their stolen freedom of speech. Free speech does not exist in Europe due to the fear of Islamic Terrorist. Take, for example, my beloved Notre Dame of Paris. Not a word has been said about the real cause of the burning of this Christian icon. God have mercy!

OIC includes 57 Islamic nations that are promoting anti-blasphemy laws. If UN16 law passes, it crushes free speech. The ADL, Anti-Defamation League is now part of the problem. Globalist are foaming racial divide designed to create a civil war. 200,000 people are trained to sensor the internet. Alex Jones’s videos, for example, have been banded from You-Tube. Many ads for Trump were silence on line during the last election. Social media is under the watch of what we used to call Big Brother.

The corruption runs deep. One of the reasons the Democratic party is in a hurry to get rid of Trump is because he has given the go-ahead to investigate corruption. Many people will be found guilty. If a politician becomes corrupt, he can acquire a lot of money while in office. One thing you can say about Trump, he did not seek the office for money; he had plenty of that already.

Elizabeth and now Little Suzie is here to warn the USA that we could lose our freedom of speech and our freedom of religion if we stay silent. Wake up, America, and smell the threat, and it is not of roses.

God bless America. St. Michael pray for the USA. God protect President Trump. Children, follow the Ten Commandments and pray to God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.

May peace be with you.

The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception – 2019

Today is one of the most glorious feast days of the Catholic Church. I usually run to the garage to find my little blue Christmas lights and to the garden or studio to find my garden statue of the Blessed Mother. Today, I relished the solemn mass in Washington, D.C. at the shrine of the patron of these United States of America followed by a very inspiring Bible study of the Theotokos by Scott Hahn, Ph.d on EWTN. Tonight, I will make a consecration to the Immaculata written by St. Maximillian Kolbe, attend a holy mass in her honor, and listen to a talk by the President of the Militia Immaculata by Dr. John Galten, all at Our Lady of Grace in Castro Valley, CA.

Besides attending holy mass on Sunday, my weekend was spent studying the teachings given to Fr. Michel Rodrigue, founder of the Apostolic Fraternity of St. Benedict and St. Joseph, The Mater Domini Community. I first learned about Fr. Michel from a posting on my facebook page by Mark Mallett, musician, lay prophet, writer, and speaker. Fr. Michel spoke at the First New Jersey Marian Conference on October 27, 2018. I watched and listened to his morning talk once
and to his afternoon talk twice. They are posted under his name if you Google it, and not available on You Tube. More information is available in the book, “The Warning Testimonies and Prophecies of the Illumination of Conscience” by Christine Watkins, which I ordered this morning on Amazon for $17.00. Although Fr. Michel’s morning talk is available now on You Tube, the afternoon talk is not.

I will summarize Fr. Michel’s afternoon talk for you from the notes I took while watching the video:
1. We need to put the family, the Holy Family, in our home. We will find our model of life in them. Fr. Michel spoke about the power of St. Joseph that he perceived when St. Joseph appeared to him. St. Joseph needs to become the model of the father in our families. He was the model of God the Father when he lived with the Blessed Mother. He died before Jesus Christ began his public ministry, as He, Jesus, the God-Man, was to become the model of God the Father.
2. Fr. Michel described the seven levels of purgatory. The souls in the lowest level receive pain from from Satan. Those souls in the highest level desire to become totally pure. He saw many priests in purgatory who had no one to pray for them. Some needed one mass said for them; others needed years of masses said for them. The Chaplet of The Divine Mercy said for a soul in purgatory lifted the soul up out of purgatory swiftly.
3. He encountered St. Michael. He was very tall, perhaps 15 feet! He touched a soul with the flame at the end of his sword, and the devil immediately left the soul.
4. God the Father asked Fr. Michel to found a new order for the renewal of the family. Fr. Michel said to God the Father, “Why me? I almost died four times! There are other much more capable than I.” Then, Jesus Christ said to him in a distinctly different voice, “My Father all ready has prepared everything!” So, Fr. Michel knew it was God the Father who had spoken to him. So, Fr. Michel founded the new order.
5. Then, he spoke of the future. [No one knows the time nor the day.] But, Fr. Michel said it will be soon. There will be a revolution with fighting between every nation. Money will crash.
6. Then, there will be a Pentecost. The Cross will appear in heaven with rays from the wounds of Christ. The rays of the Holy Spirit will be an illumination, like a mirror of one’s soul. It will be a pre-judgement. If the person were to die at that moment, and if he were going to hell, he would feel the burning pains of hell. Those going to purgatory will feel the purification pain. Everything will stop on earth, even if you are flying in a plane. God, the Creator of the Universe can do anything!
7. Everyone one will know there is a God. The sign in the sky will be visible to everyone.
8. Afterwards, there will be huge lines for confession. Priests will need help. Lay people who have to help prepare the people, to help the priests. Baptisms will be in mass with the sprinkling of the water in the Name of the Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. There will be too many people for individual baptisms.
9. We must pray for this time that is coming. We must pray for the children; pray for the enlightenment they will have. The Devil will have NO power for six weeks!
10. Everyone will see the sign of God in their life.
ll. The Devil will return. World government will be established. The United Nations, especially a couple nations, will be in control,[under Satan’s direction.] [holylove.org recorded recently in a message from God the Father that the anti-Christ is already here and waiting to take over.]
12. World government-military forces will grab the people already prepared for this. Fr. Michel said that these forces are already in place and he said he was not going to talk about it. [About a month ago, I reported to friends via a video, that UN tanks had been spotted in numerous places all over the USA.]
13. Then, Fr. Michel said it will be like what is described in Psalm 91. Read it!!
14. The Lord will prepare refuges for His people. Guardian angels will guide you to them with a flame. Fr. Michel told a true story of a man who was guided by his guardian angel holding a flame that led him to what was buried underground, the home of St. Anne and St. Joachim. Then, Fr. Michel took out a relic from his pocket of St. Anne that the man had given him!
15. You must have THE SIGN OF THE CROSS on your forehead in order to enter a refuge. An angel will be at the entrance to let those with the Cross on their forehead in and to refuse admittance to those without the cross on their forehead. Food and water will be provided. But, everyone will have to work for each other. It will be like in the early days of the Church.
16. During the last part of these times will come the Three Days of Darkness, as St. Padre Pio saw. Demons will try to put you out of the refuge. They will swallow everything that is marked by the beast, including the foundations of the houses.
17. Then, the earth will be renewed!!!
18. We are called to be ready. We are all called to be ready to guide them to the Church in those six weeks.
19. After Fr. Michel founded his order and put on his new robe and on to the members of the new order, he heard the words, “The Apostle of the Last Time”.
20. Then, he told us the following: “Consecrate your home and land to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.. Put blessed salt into holy water and sprinkle it in your home praying, “Eternal Father, I consecrate my home to You. I give You my home for a refuge, in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
21. Do this also for your land, praying “Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immmaculate Heart of Mary, I consecrate my land in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit”, while pouring blessed water with blessed salt into the ground.
22. This refuge is first for your family. Later, you will be guided to a permanent refuge by your guardian angel.

Jesus, I trust in You. God have Mercy; Christ have mercy. Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, pray for us. St. Michael pray for us. St. Joseph, pray for us. My guardian angel, pray for me.

God bless, guide, and protect you and your family.
In love to Jesus through Mary, and to God the Father, Creator of the universe.
Love,
Susanna Maria

ADVENT – 2019

Tonight is the Vigil of the Feast of St. Nicholas, the original inspiration for our friend, Santa Claus, loved by all children. May the Lord shine His radiant Light on us tonight and tomorrow as we celebrate the Feast of St. Nicholas, that Bishop of long ago, who gave gifts to the poor family. Tomorrow is also the First Friday of the month of December when we make reparations for sins against the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Tonight is Thursday during the First Week of Advent, 2019, where we light a blessed candle above our Advent wreath, saying prayers in honor of the forth-coming Baby Jesus, the Son of God.

Sunday, December 8th, is the Second Sunday of Advent, when we will light two candles above our Advent wreath. Many families set up a crib immediately after the celebration of the Immaculate Conception, which we celebrate on Monday, the 9th, as the usual date, the 8th of December, is Sunday, the Lord’s Day. Saint Francis of Assisi was so taken by the mystery of the Incarnation that he wanted to present it anew at Greccio in the living nativity scene. I remember years ago, my Protestant cousin lifted up the live animals for the living creche scene in the church’s elevator in a small town in Wisconsin.

Also, years ago, I spent Christmas in Medjugorje, a small village in Bosnia, where the Blessed Mother has been appearing daily. There was a live nativity scene on Christmas Eve outside St. James. I knew the man playing Joseph, whose wife had just given birth to a baby playing the Infant Jesus. All the restaurants were closed on Christmas Day, so one of the shop keepers put food outside his shop for the pilgrims to eat. Then, we went back to our guest house, sharing dried fruits, nuts, and chocolates from our suitcases, while Fr. Ricardo kept us laughing as he told us jokes.

What with all the corruption discovered in D.C., (God protect our President),Sacramento, (God have mercy on California),and in many parts of the world, with wars and rumors of wars, it is good to hear a story of a heroic man with great faith. This story was published by a holy, terrific priest, and author of “After Suicide”, Fr. Chris Atar, MIC, and was printed in a newsletter from Stockbridge, MA. called “Marian Helpers”. Here is the story, as told by Fr. Donald Calloway,MIC, in a homily delivered on June 2, 2019,and included in an article entitle “We Are Our Fathers’ Keepers”, by Terry Peloquin and published on pages 12-13 of the Winter issue, 2019, of the “Marian Helper” of marian.org:

“Probably no matter where you were on April 25, you got a phone call or a text message, or a co-worker said to you, “You’ve got to turn on the TV. Are you seeing this?” And what did you see? The Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris in flames.”

“It looked horrible, like it was going to burn to the ground. Those flames were huge. And as the cameras panned the crowd, you saw people crying, praying, some on their knees with a Rosary, some singing songs in French, some singing to Our Lady in Latin. But they were all a great distance from the fire. What we did not see [was] that initially, many people were inside. They ran out to get away from the fire, and they sought refuge in a nearby park.”

“But did you know that one man was on the sidelines with everyone else who decided to go inside? He was a Catholic priest. Fr. Jean-Marc Fornier, the chaplain for the Paris fire department. He turned to two firemen and said,
“I’m going in. Come with me.” And they did. They ran in the main corridor, he said to them, “There is the Crown of Thorns. Break the glass and take it. There is the cloak that King Louis used. Take it. There are the relics of St. Helena. Take them.”

“And, do you know what he did? He went into the heart of the fire, into the sanctuary, where all around him pieces of the wooden ceiling were falling. And if they hit him, he’d be dead in an instant.”

“Why did he do that? To save the greatest treasure in the Cathedral, the Blessed Sacrament. He took out the consecrated Host. And when he turned around,two firemen were holding the relics,looking at him like, “Let’s get out of here!” You know what he did? He raised the Host and blessed the firemen so they could get out – even if he did not make it. And then he raised the Host higher and blessed the entire Cathedral with the Eucharistic Presence of the Lord. And the Cathedral did not fall. It burned. The ceiling is gone, but the structure remains. The roof can be rebuilt.”

“What gave that priest the courage? His love for the Eucharistic Lord, primarily. And he was simply imitating Jesus Christ, the High Priest. ”

“Remember what Jesus did for us? When it seemed like the whole world was in ruins, that the flames of sin had destroyed everything, the Son of Man left the comfort of Paradise to become one of us and step into the fire, to give His life as a sacrifice for us so that we could be spared the flames of hell. And today, we celebrate His Ascension, when He returned to the side of His Father in the Heavenly Kingdom. And yet His mind was still thinking about us. He said that He goes to prepare a place for us, that we can have a mansion in the Kingdom of Heaven, if we remain faithful to Him.”

After that fire at Notre Dame, many social commentators – both Catholic and non-Catholic – said that it was almost as though that fire were symbolic of something happening now in the world of Christianity, Catholicism in particular. It would seem that it’s on “fire”: the persecutions, the divisions, the confusion. It is everywhere. People are leaving the Church in droves.”

“If you look at the studies, Mass attendance over the last few generations has radically plummeted. If I were to ask you, “Do you have someone in your family who no longer goes to church, who no longer believes?” I guarantee you, all you would raise your hands. These are seriously confusing times. We live in an age with a generation of young people who are called the “None Generation” because they believe in nothing – 55 percent of them believe in no organized religion whatsoever. They particularly have a disdain for Christianity. Catholicism especially. They want nothing to do with it.”

“You know this. And even for the people who remain and call themselves Catholic, many of them believe it is OK to have an abortion: OK for two men or two women to get married; and OK to practice contraception. These are the times we live in. The flames seem to be consuming the Church. Is it going to fall?”

“When I was looking at the footage of those flames over Notre Dame,I was convinced that it was going to burn to the ground. But it did not fall.”

“Is our Church going to be overcome with the darkness of our time? No. Jesus promises that the gates of hell will never prevail against the Church – never- even though the times are horrible (see Mat.16:17-19) What does God send to us in times of crisis, when it looks like everything is going to be destroyed? Priests. Zealous priests. Men who desire to save souls, to step off the safety of the sidelines and rush into the fire. That’s what God does time and time again.”

[Pointing to newly ordained Fr. Michael Baker, MIC.]” There is one. No more than 24 hours ago, that man was ordained to the sacred priesthood. He could’ve had everything the world offers. As a matter of fact, he kind of did. He had a home. He could have gotten married, enjoyed all the good things in life, but he gave it all up. To do what? To be a celibate social worker? No. To be a warrior, a fighter. More than a firefighter. To be a soldier, a knight. To save the sacred.”

“We need holy priests today. We need them more than ever. We need men willing to go into the fire – when everyone is leaving. ”

“This man was ordained so that your children could be baptized, so that they could receive sanctifying grace in their souls. This man was ordained so he could transform bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ to feed you with the Bread of Everlasting Life. This man was ordained so that God could use him as an instrument to absolve you from your sins. This man was ordained so that, through his preaching and his teaching, you could know the truth and have the Light in your mind and in your soul,so that you can avoid the flames of hell and go to that mansion that is being prepared for you.”

“And this man was ordained on the First Saturday, devoted to Our Lady. There is nothing more powerful on this planet than a Marian priest.”

Let us thank Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, for this most inspiring homily. Let us thank Fr. Chris Alar, MIC, for publishing it in his newsletter, “Marian Helper”, let us thank all the holy MIC priests in Stockbridge, MA st the Shrine of the Divine Mercy. Let us thank the French chaplain and priest, who showed so much courage and faith. Let us thank the Lord God Almighty, His Son, Jesus Christ, His Mother, Our Blessed Lady, and all priests who ever lived or are living or will be living on this earth one day. May the Lord in His abundant mercy grant you a truly holy and sacred Advent and Christmas season. God bless you and your family. Amen.

FEAST OF CHRIST THE KING

Today, like any day, I wake up sleepy and empty. I go to my shelf and take down my vina. These are adulterated words of the Sufi poet, Rumi. Today, I wake up inspired. Last night, I received my newsletter from Ireland, The Way of The Immaculate Heart sent from Doon, Co. Limerick, Ireland, from the Irish sisters who have been visionaries since their childhood. I met one of them on one of my many pilgrimages to Medjugorje while standing outside St. James parish, near Columbo’s. The visionary and her husband invited me to tea. We discussed her recent miscarriage and I comforted her, relating my miscarriage of David Irving in January, 1965.

So, after a couple of weeks spending three hours daily listening and watching the latest news on infowars.com, the welcomed newsletter came just in time. I always read it cover to cover the moment it arrives from Ireland. After two or three weeks of such heartbreaking news coming out of D.C., Rome, California, Hong Kong, New York, and elsewhere, I was relieved to sit down and devour my blessed newsletter from my humble “sisters” in Ireland.

Yes, the underground news has been deplorable! There was good news too, as when Alexander Tschugguel of Vienna threw the pagan idol into the Tiber River in Rome, or the meeting of a holy and anointed Jesuit priest working on his ph.d in theology in Berkeley. But, much of these past two weeks have been clouded over with the real news that became available via Banned Videos and infowars.com.

Who could stand by without anger and/or tears when they learn of the kangeroo court in D.C. in a trial of Roger Stone that is a total sham. The agenda is to get Stone first; then impeach the president; then put in a globalist supported replacement for President Trump. All the while Julian of Wikki Leaks has been so terribly mistreated that he was unable to voice his name!!!! Then, we learned that a statue of the idol of child sacrifice, Moleck, was placed in front of the Coloseum in Rome, after drag queens were conducting story hour for children in the U.S.A.

According to Jesse Romero’s recent book, “The Devil in the City of Angels – My Encounters with the Diabolical”, one out of three Catholic theologians do not believe in the existence of Satan. Two out of three believe in his existence but not in his practical actions and refuse to take it into account in pastoral activity. These statistics were gathered in West Germany in 1974 and were published in the Concilium. A recent study reveals that Catholics are among the least likely to agree that Satan is a living being, as published by the Center for Research on the Apostolate, CARA, at Georgetown University.

So, thank God for the holy and faithful priests I am in friendship with, along with my chosen prayer partners and sisters-in-the-faith. Thanks be to God. I remember being in Lourdes years ago. After going into the miraculous baths, we all sat around the hotel dining room eating dinner. I could clearly see those people eating dinner who had NOT gone into the baths that day. So, too, I can learn from the comments on Facebook those who have limited their discernment of the political situation in the USA to their watching of CNN, and the other mainstream media, that is perpetuating the lies about our president and global warming.

So, let us see what the humble Irish visionaries have been told by Jesus, His Mother, full of grace, and St. Patrick. Before the good news, however, I will give you a touch of the bad news coming out of Ireland. Besides passing a bill to make abortion legal, this Holloween Failte Ireland in partnership with Meath and Louth County Councils spent 800,000 Eros promoting a Puca Festival, based on the ancient pagan Celtic festival celebrated on October 31st. The ancient Druids built huge bonfires, where crops, animals, as well as human sacrifices were offered to the Celtic deities, i.e. evil forces.

Back to the good news: “Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen”- 1 Timothy 1:17. “For the Solemn Feast of My Kingship will you as one make a Novena to this Heart offering it atonement and love, appeasing Its pain for all the love which has been poured out on mankind and yet has had so little love in return?” Jesus said this to the Irish visionary on October 15, 2019. In preparation for the solemn Feast of Christ the King, Jesus has asked us to pray the following as a novena from November 16 to the 24th: A Prayer of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus; the Chaplet of Love and Mercy as given by Jesus to the visionary; an Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, as recommended by Our Lady. We have also been asked to pray for the Church, (as we were told to begin in August before the Amazon Synod),including the praying of The Chaplet of St. Michael the Archangel daily.

Regarding the Feast of Christ the King, Jesus said the following to the visionary on October 15, 2019:
“For the Solemn Feast of My Kingship will you as one make a Novena to this Heart….Then, child, I will look on you in love and I will know that you love Me and because of this great love I will shower you with grace and blessings especially on you, your homes, your families, your country. Do this for Me and you will see how I will move and act swiftly!”

Our Lady said this to the visionary on September 14, 2019: “Children, now is the time for prayer. Unite with Me then in this Cenacle and grace will be poured out among many that hearts may be open. Unite with Me, children, keep your focus on My Son Jesus. Let nothing disturb you. God is in control…………………”

God bless you, and may His peace we with you and with your family and your country. Pray, pray, pray. Do not be afraid. Hold on tight to Our Lord and Our Lady.

Love always,
Susanna Maria

Search for Truth

The theme for my blog website is “The Search for Truth”. It is my humble opinion that one has to go beyond main-stream media in order to receive a glimmering of the truth regarding politics these days. The world, as we knew it, has been turned upside down. The modern day free speech movement was birthed down the street on the campus of U.C. Berkeley. Now, in more recent times, that same campus was attacked by thugs breaking windows with clubs when a conservative was scheduled to speak on campus. Where is the truth in all of this? Popular television outlets are spouting daily the exact same talking points. They obviously are being orchestrated by anti-Trump organizations who are backed by the globalist, one-world government agenda squad who is threatened by our duly elected president who is working very hard to save this republic from a globalist agenda. Like yours truly and many others, President Trump loves this country, for which it stands, one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all.

This country was founded under Jewish and Christian principals. The current agenda threatening our country is anti-Christian, anti-nation-states, anti-family, anti-life from conception to natural birth, anti-free speech,for open borders, indoctrination of students from K-grad-school, promoting propaganda, not teaching real American history, political correctness, censored speech, etc., etc.

If you are one of the many citizens who have always watched NBC, CBS.CNN, etc., you are fed on a daily diet of propaganda in harmony with the globalist agenda.
Unless you are a critical thinker and a person with common sense, after daily indoctrination, you will begin to believe the lies if you hear them repeated often enough.

May I humbly suggest that you take a look at a website called INFOWARS.COM on a regular bases, in order to compare the information you receive on NBC, CBS, CNN, etc. with what you hear on infowars.com.

Get on your knees and ask the Lord to guide you. And, while you are at it, check out holylove.org for messages from heaven.

Jesus, I trust in You. God bless America

With Mary We Trust in God’s Mercy

Thank God, the black-out affecting much of Northern California overseen by Pacific Gas and Electric did not effect Brentwood, California, so we traveled to the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church on Friday, October 11, 2019, to attend the second annual Marian Conference. The event was hosted by Fr. Quang Minh Dong, the pastor, Fr. Arturo Bazan and Fr. John Erick Villa, both parochial vicars, Deacon Ron Horan, Deacon John Erick Villa, the Missionary Sisters, and multiple hard working volunteers from this wonderful parish. Upon arrival, we are always stunned with the beauty of the mission style church, campus, and gardens. While working at Glad Tidings in Pleasanton, California, I had the good fortune of seeing Fr. Garcia every week as he came to our Catholic book shop to visit his friend, my boss. It was Fr. Garcia who was the pastor of the old downtown church that held only about 200 people. It, like the new church, was of the California Mission style. Ground-breaking began for the new church in June, 2002 and completed in 2004. It is the most beautiful church in California.

The Marian Conference began with the scriptural rosary led by Deacon John Kortuem in the beautiful sanctuary, followed by the opening mass and keynote address by Father George Mockel, the Vicar-General of the Diocese of Oakland. Father George’s talk was very sincere and meaningful. He dared to address the disappointment he felt regarding the Church scandal. He suggested that we look to St. Francis of Assisi as one who came to the aid of the Church when it was in trouble on the past. [God raises up saints during troubles in the Church, such as St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila. Then too, He has raised up an English convert and saint for our time, (a time of trouble in the Church), in the Canonization of St. John Henry Newman which would take place the day after the conference, on Sunday, October 13, 2019, the anniversary of the final apparition of Our Lady of Fatima. The conference coincided with the Amazon Synod taking place in the Vatican.]

Father George Mockel referred to Matthew Kelly’s book “Rediscovered Saints” along with Bishop Robert Barron’s “Hearts on Fire”. He then quoted the last words recorded in the Gospel, “Do whatever He tells you,” Our Lady’s words to the waiters at he wedding feast in Cana. This becomes her last testimony to the Church! St. Francis was told by Jesus Christ, “Repair my Church.”

St. Thomas Moore, portrayed in the drama, “A Man for All Seasons”, did not agree with the divorce of King Henry VIII, from his wife, Anne Bolen. St. Thomas Moore’s conscience told him that it was wrong. He is then executed. Father George considers Bishop Barron the second greatest evangelist next to St. John Paul II and St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta. To “do whatever He tells you” is the bottom line! The Church is a mother and a teacher, according to St. Pope John XXIII. It is Christ’s Church!!!

A short video was presented of Bishop Michael, who could not attend the conference as he was in Rome for the Canonization of Mother Mary Theresia of Karala, India, Margaret Bays of Switzerland, John Henry Cardinal Newman of England, Sr. Josephine Vannini of Rome, Italy, and Sr. Dulce Lopez of Brazil.
[I watched the Canonization mass said by Pope Francis on EWTN when I returned home along with the Thanksgiving Mass of St. John Henry on October 14, 2019 held at Basilica of John Lateran. St. John Henry Cardinal Newman lived from 1801-1890. He was a noted theologian, writer, minister, and Don at Oxford, first in the Church of England, and after his conversion, he became a Cardinal in the Roman Catholic Church at age of seventy-eight. He wrote 22,000 letters, many books, and was famous for the founding of the Oratory,”There IS an objective truth”, and “Heart speaks to Heart.”]

After Fr. George’s key-note address, Fr. Quang Dong, the Pastor of Immaculate Heart of Mary, gave a formal welcome and reminded us of last year’s conference theme: “With Mary, We Say Yes to the Lord”.

Due to airline delays, Joan and Dave Maroney were unable to give their 6:30 p.m. Friday night scheduled talk. Fr. Gladstone Stevens, PSS, graciously and very capably pinch-hit for the Maroney couple flying in late from Texas. Fr. Gladstone is a convert from the Episcopal church; he is now a Roman Catholic priest and a brilliant ad-lib speaker! [It was so appropriate that the night before Blessed John Henry Newman, also a convert, became a saint, that our second speaker was also a convert from the Episcopal Church! Times have changed since the days of the persecution of the Catholics in England! Note that Prince Charles, heir to the thrown, attended the Canonization mass of John Henry Newman yesterday at the Vatican!]

Fr. Gladstone is a member of the Society of Saint Sulpice and teaches Systematic Theology at Saint Mary’s Seminary and University in Baltimore, Maryland. Here are some of the ideas he shared with us: 1) We are created by words. We are the some-total of all the words we have taken in. We hear 30,000 words each day. Everything was created into being by speech. 2) Obedience: hear reverently the Word of God. 3) Salvation begins by hearing! 3) “Let there be Light!” were God’s first words. 4) The Second Eve is the oldest name of Mary according to Cardinal John Henry Newman. The Tree of Life was also in the Garden of Eden. The Tree of Good and Evil was the other tree not to be touched. The First Eve listened to Satan. The Second Eve listened to an angel.

Following dinner, there were confessions being heard, a Eucharistic Procession, and Overnight Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Saturday morning began with an International Rosary and Benediction, followed by Mass and the Anointing of the Sick by Bishop Jaime Soto.

Fr. Gladstone Stevens, PSS, gave his second talk at 9:30 a.m. He spoke about the Real Presence in the Eucharist, saying that unfortunately, many Catholics do not believe this!!! He said that we are suffering from a famine of the Word of God. What must we eat? We must eat the Body and the Blood of Christ! Adam and Eve fell by eating incorrectly. We eat in order to live.

Fr. Gladstone recommended the reading of St. John Paul II’s book on The Eucharist, especially the chapter on the Blessed Mother. Early on in the speech Fr. Gladstone said that if a priest does not have a close relationship with The Blessed Mother, he, too, may not have strong faith in the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. Fr. Gladstone then recommended a book by Pope Benedict XVI Emeritus that states that when Mary was at the foot of the Cross, she was an icon of God the Father! We have to love the Eucharist like Mary loved her Son. Someone had to die!! Your Mother had to lose her child for us to have the Eucharist. St. John Paul II said that a priest is one who allows himself to be consumed at the needs of his people.

After the talk by Fr. Stevens, the Fil-Amm Ministry of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church of Brentwood served FREE delicious coffee made from coffee beans grown on a plantation in the Philippines. What a sweet, welcomed and gracious gesture! Such delicious coffee! This is part of a fund-raising project for IHM.

Although I had heard Joan and Dave speak at the Divine Mercy event at the Cathedral of Light in Oakland, this presentation was even more anointed! Here are some of the highlights: 1) Turn things off and pray! Stay in constant prayer!. 2) What St. Faustina was told to do: pray a Holy Hour (for our country), pray the Litany of the Saints, receive Holy Communion, and pray the novena.

What are the four important aspects of The Divine Mercy? a) The image of The Divine Mercy, b) The Chaplet of The Divine Mercy, (that will appease the angel of wrath due to abortion! c) Prayer, and d)The 3:00 p.m. Holy Hour. The Feast of The Divine Mercy is the Second Baptism! Ask for huge things from God! Fast! No meat on Fridays! Stop and pray at 3:00 p.m.

Our Lady of America appeared to Sister Mary Ephrim in Ohio on September 15, 1956, giving her a message. Our Lady of America appeared again on October 7, 1957, asking us to pray the family rosary. On October 13, 1956, she appeared holding a model of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception of Washington D.C. She asked that the Bishop processed with the statue of Our Lady of American and provide a permanent place for her veneration at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. (There are chapels along the sides of the shrine with images of the Blessed Mother from many, many nations, but none from the USA. Our Lady of Guadalupe is the patron of all the Americas, North and South.) Our Lady promised that if her wishes were granted, the National Shrine would be a safe-guard forever for our country. She appeared wearing white, and asked for the reformation of life. She appeared on May 22, 1954 and December 20, 1959. She wants a picture of her image honored in our homes. She asked that a medal be struck. Sister Mary Ephrim’s spiritual director, Monsignor Paul F. Leibold, who later became the archbishop of Cincinnati, Ohio and is now deceased, gave his approval of the messages and the medal. Sr. Mary Ephrim’s visions began when St. Faustina died. in 1938. Cardinal Burke has investigated this apparition and has okayed it. More information is available at http://www.OurLadyofAmerica.org

In 1943, the words, “under God” were not included in the Pledge of Allegiance. These were President Lincoln’s words, i.e. “Under God”. On February 8, 1954, President Eisenhower added the words, “under God”, to the Pledge Allegiance.
“Without faith, there can be no love”, Jesus told Sister Mary Ephrim. In 1954, He said, “Woe to children who neglect to honor their father and mother. Joan asked us to read the messages! How can we bring God into our homes? Have the Lord enthroned in your home. How does one venerate the image of The Divine Mercy? By enthronement. A packet was available after the talk called: “Enthroning The Divine Mercy as King of Home and Family, Informational Guide. It is available at http://www.familydivinemercy.org Fr. Seraphim was consulted about the enthronement and he said the prayers were perfect.

In the 1950’s, the upper church of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. began to be built. Next year, it will be the 100th anniversary of the ground-breaking of the Shrine. The Blessed Mother promises purity to the world if her requests are met. We were asked to pray the Rosary for 72 days, beginning next Saturday, with the intentions that the Bishops will honor Our Lady’s request.

Father Mark Wiesner gave a talk at 2:00 p.m. He is the pastor of St. Charles Borromeo parish in Livermore, California, followed by the Holy Hour at 3:00 p.m. with a very anointed praying of the Chaplet of The Divine Mercy. Thank you, Jesus.

After the dinner break, there was a candlelight rosary procession followed by the closing mass by Father Quang Minh Dong. Besides the wonderful program described above, there was a parallel program of masses and talks in Spanish by Msgr. Eduardo Chavez, Fr.Arturo Bazan, and Bishop Jaime Soto May God in His great mercy bless, guide, protect, and anoint all those who made this wonderful Marian Conference possible. Thank you, Jesus. Our Lady of America, pray for us. We look forward to October 9-10th for the 2020 Marian Conference in Brentwood, California. Jesus, I trust in You.
