Goodmorning Disciples of Jesus Christ. Today we are going to reflect on God’s Love because Our Lord has put it on my heart to speak about His Love and testify to the world what He has done for me and how quickly He has brought me to where I am today. The reason for this is because I can honestly witness my own steps through the Spiritual life according to Father Reginald Garrigou Lagrange and I am discerning now that we are getting ready to take another step towards the Illuminative stage, which is the second stage with Our Lord to become His saint. I will explain this shortly, but first let’s discuss that we are currently on Volume 11 of the teachings of the Divine Will taught to Luisa Piccarreta by Our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Master teacher. I now know that Our Lord led me to these teachings and specifically to Frances Hogan, because I can tell with my Spiritual ears that she has been given a gift of teaching by Our Lord. I have been given so many confirmations from Our Lord about everything we have written in this blog and now plan to come and ask Our Lord to write this blog for me as He taught to Luisa to ask Him to do all of our acts everyday so that we can learn to remove our will and replace it with God’s Divine Will, which makes our acts His Divine acts. The Holy Spirit has guided us on everything we have put into this blog, but we want to ensure that some of my own will did not intrude or influence anything I have written. Now we must take it to a whole new level because we are moving into the Divine Will, which according to Our Lord taught to Luisa Piccarreta, is the highest level we can achieve in the Spiritual life on Earth. When we know that God is truly working in our lives, we are supposed to proclaim it to the world, and He tells us this in His teachings to Luisa and here in Psalm 45 in His Holy Word. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm%20145&version=NABRE.
The Greatness and Goodness of God
1 Praise. Of David.
I will extol you, my God and king;
I will bless your name forever and ever.
2 Every day I will bless you;
I will praise your name forever and ever.
3 Great is the Lord and worthy of much praise,
whose grandeur is beyond understanding.
4 One generation praises your deeds to the next
and proclaims your mighty works.
5 They speak of the splendor of your majestic glory,
tell of your wonderful deeds.
6 They speak of the power of your awesome acts
and recount your great deeds.
7 They celebrate your abounding goodness
and joyfully sing of your justice.
8 The Lord is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and abounding in mercy.
9 The Lord is good to all,
compassionate toward all your works.
10 All your works give you thanks, Lord
and your faithful bless you.
11 They speak of the glory of your reign
and tell of your mighty works,
12 Making known to the sons of men your mighty acts,
the majestic glory of your rule.
13 Your reign is a reign for all ages,
your dominion for all generations.
The Lord is trustworthy in all his words,
and loving in all his works.
14 The Lord supports all who are falling
and raises up all who are bowed down.
15 The eyes of all look hopefully to you;
you give them their food in due season.
16 You open wide your hand
and satisfy the desire of every living thing.
17 The Lord is just in all his ways,
merciful in all his works.
18 The Lord is near to all who call upon him,
to all who call upon him in truth.
19 He fulfills the desire of those who fear him;
he hears their cry and saves them.
20 The Lord watches over all who love him,
but all the wicked he destroys.
21 My mouth will speak the praises of the Lord;
all flesh will bless his holy name forever and ever.
So, why is it important that I share my own Spiritual journey with everyone? It is because we always can testify to God’s Mercy for us sinners, and to proclaim God’s Mercy for all sinners, no matter how far we fall away from His grace. Before I came back to Our Lord, I was a terrible Catholic and was far removed from God for at least 30 plus years because I did not go to Confession or go to Holy Mass on a regular basis. When Our Lord brought me through my sickness that could have killed me eight years ago, I told Him I would serve Him because He showed me personally how far from His grace, I had fallen away from Him through my sins. I was so blinded by my own sins, that I had no idea of what a terrible Catholic I was for such a long period of time. I now can see that this is a large majority of Catholics now and this is why we have such a low rate of Catholics believing or even understanding the True Presence of our Lord, Jesus Christ, in the consecrated Holy Eucharist. I have explained this in this blog many times of how Satan pulls us away from God by first separating us from God and from the Holy Mass and the Sacraments. Because of our own personal choices of stepping away from God because of the lures of the world and stepping away from the Sacrament of Confession, we begin to think that missing Church is not a big deal because God still loves us, and we begin to rationalize all of our sins away, and say to ourselves, “Well, I am still a good person” even if I miss Church occasionally, and I am still a good person and can Confess my sins to God personally, I don’t need to go to Confess them to a Priest”. For anyone reading this blog right now that has said this to themselves, please keep reading and don’t get angry at what I write next! This is actually Satan putting these thoughts into our minds because we chose to step away from God and you have now given Satan permission to put a foothold into the doorway of your soul. This permission you have given by stepping away from God, His Truth, and the Sacraments not only has led you to Mortal sin, but now exposes you to more Mortal sins and possibly worse Mortal sins that may keep you from entering into eternal life with Our Lord. A reminder for those that have been away from God in their Spiritual blindness, it only takes one Mortal sin to separate us completely from God eternally. Our world, especially in many Catholics today, has become a world of rationalism, as Frances Hogan has said in her teaching of the Divine Will. I can testify to this myself, and when Our Lord allowed me to suffer, and my ego and pride got knocked down to where it should have been all along in humility, I realized by God’s grace, how far I had removed myself from Him and was steeped in sins that I thought were not really all that bad. This was a HUGE Grace and Blessing from God to be knocked down off my pedestal of pride that He did not have to give me, but He did because of His Mercy.
So, the first 7 years of God showing me my errors of sin and being on fire from the Holy Spirit were all of the consolations He gave to me in feeling His Presence after receiving the Holy Eucharist, or during contemplative prayer. Now, starting my 8th year coming back to Our Lord fully on fire of love for Him, I don’t have as many consolations, and recall what the Holy Spirit said to me coming out of my sleep after our big family trial (which was another gift from God). The Holy Spirit said to me while coming out of sleep on our couch with our kids in the room and the television on, “Don’t worry about the things of this world, for these things will go and come, but remember what I taught you, for this is most important.” It was so clear, that when I heard it with my physical ears, I woke up and said, “Wow” and I had to tell our family! This was another test for me and this for me was the Holy Spirit letting me know He was pulling back, but I had to keep pushing into Our Lord’s Sacred Heart. This was a confirmation for me now, looking back, that Our Lord was pushing me more into the Illuminative way, but I had to continue to have the desire to keep moving closer to Him without the consolations. This has been very difficult for me, because I had no idea how much the Holy Spirit was guiding me in everything, until now. I now feel like a slowly deflated balloon falling to the ground, with less of the hot air of the Holy Spirit helping me to soar to great heights in holiness. It is definitely a dark night of the senses, and not of the soul, because I can still hear Our Lord speak to me in locutions, but I am relying on my confirmations from Him that it was really Him speaking to me and not the Holy Fire I was feeling in my heart as it was before when He spoke to me! Now that Our Lord has led me to His teaching of the Divine Will, He has given me a new agenda for Him, and I now see that this was His plan for me at this point of my Spiritual journey.
When we started this blog, our prayer group that Our Lord had brought me to 8 years ago was so good to educate me and help me understand how to love God and have a Relationship with Him. Then, our prayer group began to have an understanding of how sinful our times are and how bad it really is in the world from the growth of these horrific sins and offenses against God and how far Catholics and Christians, including myself, had fallen away from God. This is sadly the norm now, and many Catholics are not seeing it because they are Spiritually blinded by their sins.
I have discerned now, that because of my promise to God to serve Him 8 years ago when He saved me from my despair, that He gave us a gift of discernment, understanding and enough knowledge to put information together in this blog of how to prepare us for the Warning/Illumination of Conscience and this was part of my mission for Him in reparation for my own sins, but now I must place my “nothingness” into His Divine Will, which is His “Allness” (One of the teachings of the Divine Will). Because God has done this with many of His small pebbles of watchmen for these times, and this is why He gave me the vision of Him throwing hundreds to thousands of us “small pebbles” into His Ocean of Divine Mercy and the ripple effect this will have for the salvation of souls, I know for sure that at the current moment, us writing this blog is still His Divine Will and He wants me to continue to write this blog for His Glory.
Because of the Holy Spirit setting me on fire to serve Him from 2015 to now, we have been able to put this blog together, adopt a child, go to Medjugorje to increase my Spiritual life with the help of Our Blessed Mother, had a personal conversion of one of our family members to Catholicism, began setting up a Refuge for the salvation of souls in the Marian army of love, and continue to grow Spiritually through the stages of the Spiritual life with Our Lord! These are all from the Glories of God and each one is a personal Miracle and Grace from God that I can testify to the World! Although the Holy Spirit has educated me so much by speaking to me when waking up out of sleep, and Our Lord giving me locutions during Adoration or Holy Mass, I still have many defects that I am still eradicating from my disordered soul to be able to keep moving forward to the illuminative stage. So, our family went through our own personal trials of the dark night of the senses, and we are becoming more “Illuminative” of how to stay away from all sin, even venial. When we say “yes” to the Lord and pray to become His saint, this is expected, because He has to continue to purge all of these defects, we still have in order for Him to mold us into His saints through the personal trials and tests He brings to us. The defects are something we have learned personally about ourselves that God reveals to us through our trials and this is the awareness of our own sins and self-knowledge that He gives us as a grace, but this is a gift from God and this is what the Holy Spirit meant when He said to me last year coming out of sleep, “you have to accept all of the gifts”. Everything Our Lord does to continue to move us on His Spiritual path into His Sacred Heart are all gifts because God knows exactly what we need to continue our transformations that He does to our souls. I had this gift of understanding a few years ago, but now I have actually experienced what the Holy Spirit was teaching me, and we were sharing in this blog, and this is why Our Lord wanted me to share my own personal experience with a lost soul that may be reading this blog today, because I too was a lost soul in my own sins and blinded by the Truth!
In fact, many of our prayer group members also went through the dark night of the senses in different ways in the past year. Now, that we are on the other side of these trials and God has shown us the Divine Will teachings, we can pick up our Spiritual growth again, and root out the remainder of our defects. Because now, Our Lord is showing me that Love is the key to everything in His teaching to Luisa Piccarreta, I now have more understanding of the dream and words I received from the Holy Spirit while going through my personal trial several months ago. Here is what we wrote in January about a dream I received from the Holy Spirit about Love. This is why I now know that God has brought us to the teachings of Luisa Piccarreta, through Frances Hogan for a reason. https://liveandloveforjesus.com/2023/01/12/reflection-on-gods-holy-word-in-mark-121-28-latest-podcast-from-father-dan-reehil-and-being-battle-ready-on-catholic-radio-maria-breakthrough-from-the-holy-spirit-on-obtaining-the-virtue-of-love/.
I am understanding the differences from the Holy Spirit speaking to me and Our Lord speaking to me, in my own personal discernment. The Holy Spirit speaks to me mostly when coming out of my sleep and I know He has been my main teacher over the past several years in getting me through this purgative stage. I have learned that the Holy Spirit speaks to me in more of an old Biblical language, and one time, He even spoke to me in Latin, which is also in one of these blog posts. Our Lord speaks to me in Adoration, or after the Holy Mass more in plain language, and this may be different for everyone, but this is what I have been discerning over the years. Just two days ago, Our Lord put it on my heart to share what He has blessed me with personally and to speak about His Love. After reading and reflecting (contemplating) on the Twenty-Four Hours of the passion on the 11th hour, I asked Our Lord what it was that He wanted me to share about His Love. Our Lord, Jesus Christ said, “My Child, if you could count all the drops of the ocean and compared each drop to My Love, you still could not fathom it’s depths. To be consumed by Me in the Divine Will is the totality of earthly love. When your soul leaves your physical body at death, the soul continues with Me in the Heavenly realm of experiencing this love that is never ending, always consuming, always receiving, and always giving. Once you begin your journey in the Divine Will, your soul will never stop learning about the love of the Holy Trinity, unless you stop it with your own will.” Our Lord gave me an understanding that this is just the beginning of learning about God’s love by living in His Divine Will on earth. This is why He gave me the image of the ocean being His love measured in drops, because we will never be able to fully understand how much love He has for us, and living in His Divine Will is only just the beginning of having any understanding of how to receive His Love and spread His Love to others. Then Our Lord said to me, “This is the same path of the saints, and your desire to become a saint is what brought you here, and it is only your continual desire that will keep you on this journey.” I thanked Our Lord for His Love and prayed for Him to give me confirmation of what He had just said to my heart. Just yesterday, I began volume 11 in the teachings of the Divine Will by Frances Hogan and the subject was “Love” which is the confirmation Our Lord gave me that His words in Adoration to me were from Him. Even though Luisa Piccarreta is the first human to go through the Divine Will other than Our Blessed Mother Mary, what Our Lord meant by the path of the saints is that it is our continued desire through prayer to Him to become a saint and to remain on the Spiritual journey to the “Unitive Stage” with Him. Luisa Piccarreta had 3 Spiritual Marriages with Our Lord, meaning that she had 3 separate “Spiritual Unions” with Our Lord in her Spiritual life (journey) with Our Lord. Wow!
So, this is the way Our Lord works with us, and this is how we discern how to hear His voice. I am still working on all of my personal defects, and just now with the graces of the Holy Spirit rooting out these few remaining defects and disordered part of my life to continue to bring me into the illuminative stage of the Spiritual life. As I continue to listen to the volumes of Luisa Piccarreta, I know that there will be more trials coming, and this is what we must all go through in order for God to purge us from our sins and continue to mold us into His saints. Each Saint took their own personal path to holiness, and this is what Our Lord was explaining to me, but we must fully understand how much love of God first, then neighbor, plays the biggest part in our own Spiritual paths and this is why the Holy Spirit showed me in my dream on parchment paper the words. “For one to fulfill the request to be made holy, one must first fulfill all righteousness of being holy.” We can’t become a saint until we fulfill all righteousness of being holy by exhibiting God’s love on all levels. Frances Hogan has explained this over and over again through the Divine Will teachings because God is all Love and Mercy and God cannot rest in a soul that has any intentional venial sin or lack of love. So, we are now at the point of trying to “fulfill all righteousness of being holy” for God. Another HUGE step, but we can do anything through Christ, who strengthens us. https://biblehub.com/philippians/4-13.htm.
This is why Our Lord has put it on my heart at the beginning of this blog that we must also work together in all Christian denominations to spread God’s Love. If you truly love God, you are not going to speak badly about anyone or any denomination, but I can personally testify to what God has shown me about being a Catholic and how important are the Blessed Sacraments. I put everything in God’s hands as to how many and who He desires to bring to this blog to read in order to prepare themselves both Spiritually and physically for what is coming in the Purification and Tribulation. I pray this testimony will serve God in the salvation of souls and I pray we can all continue to work together because of our love of God. If you are interested in becoming Catholic, please read this. It has already been prophesied many times that when the Warning/Illumination of Conscience occurs with Our Lord, many Christians and pagans will convert to Catholicism because of their awareness of the Truth that God reveals to their hearts. https://www.ewtn.com/catholicism/library/how-to-become-a-catholic-1036.
Let us Pray – Lord, we now call You into writing this blog for us, because we cannot write this blog better than You can. We continue to pray for the Gifts to live in Your Divine Will and continue to pray for You to mold us into your saints. Thank You for the gifts of self-knowledge to continue to root out all of our defects so that You can rest fully in our souls. Please enlighten us or illuminate us to any disturbance interiorly so that we may practice living in Your Divine Presence perpetually. Please also show us Your Truth Lord and continue to prepare us for what is coming. We can do anything through Your Graces, and we have complete and total Trust in Your Divine Will. We ask this through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

Because we are constantly searching for the Truth of what Our Lord wants us to write in this blog, we are still trying to discern if we are going to have a small window of peace after the Warning/Illumination of Conscience occurs, because many souls will turn back to God after the Purification period. This period of peace of where Our Blessed Mother’s Heart will Triumph with the assistance of the Holy Spirit is called the Great Monarch period. Here is Xavier Reyes-Ayral explaining his book and research into the prophetic messages around this period of peace before the Great Tribulation comes with the antichrist. https://www.lifesitenews.com/blogs/prophecy-enoch-and-elijah-will-return-and-condemn-the-diabolical-errors-of-the-antichrist/.
We have Xavier’s book now but have not attempted to read it yet because we are still learning about the Divine Will from Our Lord, and He has put this on my heart as His first priority. But we will continue to listen to Xavier’s research through his interviews.
In the previous post, Our Lord wanted us to write about how sin is slowly encompassing the whole earth, and listening to the Divine Will teaching, Our Lord explains that His light to our souls can be compared to the Sun being the light, nourishment and life of our planet to continue to evolve. The other day as I was listening to this, the Lord gave me an understanding that this is why He is allowing the 3 Days of Darkness as sin will continue to block out all of His light. This is why the 3 Days of Darkness will be such a horrific experience, but we will be protected by Him in our Refuges. Many of you are aware that there was another satanic conference this past weekend in Boston. This is more proof and confirmation of the amount of sin and evil that continues to grow. Please keep praying for God’s Love and Light to penetrate this darkness and evil period of time. https://www.wbur.org/news/2023/04/21/satanic-temple-satancon-boston.

This video and prophetic message from Father Oliveira gives support to a Purification period that we will all experience after a cataclysmic event occurs along with war. There is a continuation of Father Oliveira’s messages that we posted a few weeks ago and will re-post them here. However, this is a new website we have just discovered, and we will continue to pray that all of these messages are truly from Father Oliveira. We will continue to seek discernment from the Holy Spirit, but according to Father Oliveira, in these messages, he confirms and alluded to the fact that the world will be renewed in 2029. https://casorosendi.com/2022/11/06/visions-prophecies-fr-oliveira/.
Keep being transformed Disciples by Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Father Olivera’s messages above both confirm Our Blessed Mother’s Marian Army and the 3 Days of Darkness. We can only be fully prepared for everything by being Spiritually connected to God as His sheep that continue to hear His voice. God Bless, and let’s keep praying for His Glory to reign on earth through His Divine Will! If anyone would like to share their own personal messages of what it means to be a Catholic in love with God, or their own personal Spiritual growth with Our Lord, please share in the comments section! We look forward to hearing your testimonies of Faith!
Emmanuel – “God is with Us.” Jesus, We Trust in You. Most Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, save us and the whole world, Have Mercy on us. Abba, Father, Thy Will Be Done.
