Goodmorning Disciples of Jesus Christ. Events are continuing to escalate, and we are all experiencing more trials, especially those in the Ukraine with the persistent war with the invasion of Russia. We are witnessing catastrophic weather continue to increase, and we are also witnessing food shortages and the prices of food continue to go up! So, we all know in our hearts that we MUST stand firm in our Faith. We are all going through these trials as God’s Children because we are all being Purified to make our robes white, and we MUST persevere until the end. This is getting harder and harder because our trials are becoming more difficult. However, the Holy Spirit reminded me last night while I was praying the Third Decade of the Holy Rosary of the Glorious Mysteries that He spoke to me two weeks ago when I was coming out of sleep the words. “The Third Glorious Mystery, the Descent of the Holy Spirit.” And several weeks before, He said to me while coming out of sleep. “You must receive the gifts”. So, I believe this is His way of telling my family and all of us beforehand that although we continue to go through trials, we must INCREASE our prayers, and remain steadfast in our FAITH, just like the Apostles did in the upper room for 10 days before the Holy Spirit descended in the First Pentecost. We also have to remember that all trials and blessings are from God. Just like many of our good and holy Priests and Pastors have taught us, everything from God is a gift, whether it is a trial of suffering, or a blessing, and overcoming these trials through the Most Precious Blood is what makes us saints.
So, our personal family and some friends are also going through a very serious trial right now, and we are all trying to discern God’s Divine Will in this particular trial. While I was praying the Holy Rosary and I said out loud, the Third Glorious Mystery, The Descent of the Holy Spirit, He immediately brought my dream of hearing these words several weeks ago to my mind. The Holy Spirit was revealing to me that we MUST accept all gifts from God, even very difficult trials that involve the ones we LOVE the most, and we INCREASE our Prayers (just like the Apostles did in the upper room), until the Holy Spirit comes. Because God allows us to experience these trials that hurt us, we MUST stand fast and firm in our FAITH in Him, that He will deliver us from all evil. Please increase your prayers for all of God’s Children today going through a personal trial that God allows to make us more holy. Please pray that we all will persevere for Our Lord to become His saints.
Here is today’s Holy Mass celebrated at St. Mary’s Parish in Ottawa, Canada. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ks_WKR–p5Q.
Let us reflect on all of the Scriptures in God’s Holy Word in standing fast in God’s Faith. https://www.openbible.info/topics/stand_fast.
Let us also reflect on James 1, in God’s Holy Word. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=James+1&version=NIV.
1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
To the twelve tribes scattered among the nations:
Trials and Temptations
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.
9 Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position. 10 But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wild flower. 11 For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich will fade away even while they go about their business.
12 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. 15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
16 Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. 17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. 18 He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.
Listening and Doing
19 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. 21 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.
22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.
26 Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. 27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
Take a look at verses 12, and 16 through 18. Here is verse 17, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change life shifting shadows.” So, if we try are experiencing a trial today, we must remind ourselves to seek God’s Will in how He wants us to proceed in order to remain steadfast in Faith in Him, INCRESASE OUR PRAYERS, and believe in Our Lord that He will send the Holy Spirit to deliver us from all evil, just like we pray in Our Lord’s prayer in the “Our Father”.
Let us Pray – Lord, please deliver us from all evil, just like You taught us in Your prayer to Our Heavenly Father. We accept all gifts from You, but we pray for an increase in Faith, Hope, Trust, Fortitude, Forbearance, Piety and Humility. We know that You are making our robes white by the crosses you allow us to bear, but we can’t bear this trial (cross) without You by our side. Please also grant us Wisdom to see what You are teaching us in How to become Your saints through these trials and allow us the strength to be able to persevere through all of our crosses until the end. We pray for the intercession of Our Blessed Mother Mary, and Saint Joseph, and our Guardian Angels to pray for us through these trials, and we ask this of Our Heavenly Father, Abba, in Your name, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Here are the latest messages from After the Warning Website. This first one is to Giselle Cardia. https://afterthewarning.com/messages-from-heaven/giselle-cardia/2022/september/02/i-come-for-my-children-in-the-mud.
This next one is to Luz De Maria from Saint Michael the Archangel. https://afterthewarning.com/messages-from-heaven/luz-de-maria/2022/september/02/this-is-the-moment-of-fulfillment.
In this message from Saint Michael, we see that he states that the “designs of God are being fulfilled little by little, but several revelations will come at lightning speed.” This is what we are witnessing now with God’s designs being revealed little by little. But we must be prepared for when events will come one after another at “lightning speed.” I believe in my heart that our personal trials, which cause us to increase our prayers to Our Lord, is a way for Our Lord to prepare us for these “Lightening Speed” events. We MUST learn to endure each trial and keep pressing into Our Lord’s Sacred Heart. Many people involved in the Ukraine and Russian war are already witnessing these types of severe trials. Please remember to pray for all of God’s Children enduring the suffering in this war. Notice also in Saint Michael’s message that he states, “Humility brings us closer to God”. Everything that we will experience in our trials is a way of gaining more virtue in Humility, and this is a virtue that we have to gain in order to be able to move from the purgative way to the illuminative way in the Spiritual life. We have written about this several times in the blog, if anyone would like to study more on the teaching from Father Garrigou-Lagrange on the three stages of Spiritual Life.

We have to remember that as God’s Disciples, we are praying for the salvation of souls. So, if you are regular follower of this blog, we believe you have been chosen by God to be a witness to these end times for God, and you have also been chosen by Our Blessed Mother to be in Her Marian Army of Love. This Army of Our Blessed Mother is to fight for the salvation of souls through prayer, and this is how Her Immaculate Heart will triumph in the end. Please include in your constant prayers the salvation of souls, because this is God’s greatest Will for all of His Children, and He expects us to pray for lost souls as His Disciples.

Here is Mary Greeley news reporting on how to pressure can hot dogs. Not a bad idea if you don’t have a lot of money. Try to begin pressure canning everything you are able to can., because Our Lord can also multiply this on our shelves. Canning will also save you money as we continue to witness the price of food continue to rise, revealing that we are definitely in the Third Seal of the Book of Revelation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMgNQ7cJtb4.
