The Private Revelation - My Encounters with Jesus Christ: Flash Memoir by Rosa givesTestimony to the Authenticity of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska's Diary, Divine Mercy In My Soul and GOD'S URGENT MESSAGE TO THE WHOLE WORLD.

This web site is dedicated to my Family and to All Souls -  May we all Live and Love  for the Glory of God! Inspirational music has been provided at the top of every page of the website for your enjoyment and reflection.

Jesus commands us to "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age." (Matthew 28:19-20)

Evangelization is not optional. Jesus has placed a great commission upon all Christians to evangelize and make disciples of all of His children. Pope John Paul VI stated that this is the number one mission of the church (EVANGELII NUNTIANDI). Therefore, it is absolutely our duty as Christians to evangelize - we don't want to reach the end of our lives to discover we have not brought any souls to The Beloved, Jesus.

Jesus tells us through St. Faustina that there are three things that are absolutely essential to save souls. There is but one price at which souls are bought and that is SUFFERING and SACRIFICE (eg: Fasting) and PRAYER.

Through St. Faustina, Jesus communicated to the world that He can use our sufferings to save souls, IF we join them to His Passion. He told St. Faustina, “I have need of your sufferings to rescue souls." [Diary 1612]

"My will has not yet been fully accomplished in you; you will still remain on earth, but not for long. I am well pleased with your trust, but your love should be more ardent. Pure love gives the soul strength at the very moment of dying. When I was dying on the cross, I was not thinking about Myself, but about poor sinners, and I prayed for them to My Father. I want your last moments to be completely similar to Mine on the cross. There is but one price at which souls are bought, and that is suffering united to My suffering on the cross. Pure love understands these words; carnal love will never understand them." [Diary 324]

"Every conversion of a sinful soul demands sacrifice." [Diary 961]

During Holy Mass, I saw the Lord Jesus nailed upon the cross amidst great torments. A soft moan issued from His Heart. After some time, He said, "I thirst. I thirst for the salvation of souls. Help Me, My daughter, to save souls. Join your sufferings to My Passion and offer them to the heavenly Father for sinners." [Diary 1032]

I saw the suffering Lord Jesus who leaned down toward me and whispered softly, "My daughter, help Me to save sinners". Suddenly, a burning desire to save souls entered my soul. When I recovered my senses, I knew just how I was to help souls, and I prepared myself for greater sufferings. [Diary 1645]

"My daughter, I want to instruct you on how you are to rescue souls through sacrifice and prayer. You will save more souls through prayer and suffering than will a missionary through his teachings and sermons alone. I want to see you as a sacrifice of living love, which only then carries weight before Me." [Diary 1767]

"My daughter, meditate frequently on the sufferings which I have undergone for your sake, and then nothing of what you suffer for Me will seem great to you. You please me most when you meditate on My Sorrowful Passion. Join your little sufferings to My Sorrowful Passion, so that they may have infinite value before My Majesty" [Diary, 1512]

"If the angels were capable of envy, they would envy us for two things: one is the receiving of Holy Communion, and the other is suffering." [Diary 1804]

It is important that we don't fear and dwell on hell. The devil is actually afraid of us. However, to believe that hell doesn't exist, that no one goes there and that everyone goes to heaven is not wise - what are we fighting for? There would be no spiritual battle and no reason to sacrifice, offer suffering, fast, or pray.  This thinking erodes our faith and that is what the devil wants - he wants us to believe that he doesn't exist and therefore it is easier for him to pull us into hell. The following passages from St. Faustina's diary surely bring  horrible images to our immagination and should remind us to offer up our sacrifices and align our sufferings with Jesus Christ on the cross. Therefore we shouldn't waste the sacrifices and trials that come up in our lives because they have value. They can be everyday little things that cause us discomfort.

"Today, I was led by an Angel to the chasms of hell.  It is a place of great torture; how awesomely large and extensive it is!  The kinds of tortures I saw: the first torture that constitutes hell is the loss of God; the second is perpetual remorse of conscience; the third is that one's condition will never change; the fourth is the fire that will penetrate the soul without destroying it—a terrible suffering, since it is a purely spiritual fire, lit by God's anger; the fifth torture is continual darkness and a terrible suffocating smell, and, despite the darkness, the devils and the souls of the damned see each other and all the evil, both of others and their own; the sixth torture is the constant company of Satan; the seventh torture is horrible despair, hatred of God, vile words, curses and blasphemies.  These are the tortures suffered by all the damned together, but that is not the end of the sufferings.  There are special tortures destined for particular souls.  These are the torments of the senses.  Each soul undergoes terrible and indescribable sufferings, related to the manner in which it has sinned.  There are caverns and pits of torture where one form of agony differs from another.  I would have died at the very sight of these tortures if the omnipotence of God had not supported me.  Let the sinner know that he will be tortured throughout all eternity, in those senses which he made use of to sin.  I am writing this at the command of God, so that no soul may find an excuse by saying there is no hell, or that nobody has ever been there, and so no one can say what it is like.

"I, Sister Faustina, by the order of God, have visited the abysses of hell so that I might tell souls about it and testify to its existence.  I cannot speak about it now; but I have received a command from God to leave it in writing.  The devils were full of hatred for me, but they had to obey me at the command of God.  What I have written is but a pale shadow of the things I saw.  But I noticed one thing: that most of the souls there are those who disbelieved that there is a hell.  When I came to, I could hardly recover from the fright.  How terribly souls suffer there!  Consequently, I pray even more fervently for the conversion of sinners.  I incessantly plead God's mercy upon them.  O my Jesus, I would rather be in agony until the end of the world, amidst the greatest sufferings, than offend You by the least sin." {Diary 741}

The Holy Bible makes it very clear that God created us for His Glory.

"To the north I shall say, 'Give them up!' and to the south, 'Do not hold them back!' Bring back my sons from far away, and my daughters from the remotest part of the earth, everyone who bears my name, whom I have created for my glory, whom I have formed, whom I have made." (Isaiah 43:6-7)

Life is wasted when we do not live for and do everything for the Glory of God. All life is for His Glory.

"Whatever you eat, then, or drink, and whatever else you do, do it all for the glory of God."
(1 Corinthians10:31)

In order to Love God and our Neighbour it is our duty as Christians to lead people to God for everlasting peace and joy, otherwise we don’t love.

"You are light for the world. A city built on a hill-top cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp to put it under a tub; they put it on the lamp-stand where it shines for everyone in the house. In the same way your light must shine in people's sight, so that, seeing your good works, they may give praise to your Father in heaven." (Matthew 5: 14-16)

"Though I should give away to the poor all that I possess, and even give up my body to be burned -- if I am without love, it will do me no good whatsoever." (1 Corinthians13:3)

A Church In Crisis: Dr. Ralph Martin Interview Fr. Mark Goring, CC

 

In his book, "A Church in Crisis: Pathways Forward" Dr. Martin talks about all the most important realities we are dealing with now ... a summary of our current situation. Monsignor Charles Pope told Dr. Martin that reading his book saved his faith.

"Until they (eg: Germany) make the Lord Jesus Christ the absolute centre 100 % clearly, unambiguously of everything they do, they’re up the creek, there’s no hope for any diocese, or conference of bishops or any country. Not only do they need to make Jesus the centre but they need to make the real Jesus the centre. They can’t create a Jesus or Christianity to suit the culture, to suit themselves. And we can never separate Jesus from His teaching otherwise we’re creating an idol. Everything that Jesus says is how we know who He is, what He wants and what His will is. Unless you submit to Jesus you will not have the life He wants to give you, you will not have the salvation He wants to give you. The real Jesus cannot be separated from His revealed word ...  recovering our confidence in sacred scripture." (Reference: 10-13 minutes)

The True Vine - John 15

"I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that bears no fruit He cuts away, and every branch that does bear fruit He prunes to make it bear even more.You are pruned already, by means of the word that I have spoken to you. Make your home in Me, as I make mine in you. As a branch cannot bear fruit all by itself, but must remain part of the vine, neither can you unless you remain in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in Me, with Me in him, bears fruit in plenty; for cut off from me you can do nothing. Anyone who does not remain in Me is like a branch that has been thrown away – he withers; these branches are collected and thrown on the fire, and they are burnt. If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, you may ask what you will and you shall get it. It is to the glory of my Father that you should bear much fruit, and then you will be my disciples. As the Father has loved Me, so I have loved you. Remain in My love, If you keep my commandments you will remain in my love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and remain in His love. I have told you this so that My own joy may be in you and your joy be complete.This is My commandment: love one another, as I have loved you. A man can have no greater love than to lay down his life for his friends.You are my friends, if you do what I command you.I shall not call you servants any more, because a servant does not know his master’s business; I call you friends, because I have made known to you everything I have learnt from My Father. You did not choose me, no, I chose you; and I commissioned you to go out and to bear fruit, fruit that will last; and then the Father will give you anything you ask him in My name.What I command you is to love one another." (John 15)

Prayer to Be Merciful - St. Maria Faustina Helena Kowalska

"O Lord. I want to be completely transformed into Your mercy and to be Your living reflection. May the greatest of all divine attributes, that of Your unfathomable mercy, pass through my heart and soul to my neighbour.

Help me, O Lord, that my eyes may be merciful, so that I may never suspect or judge from appearances, but look for what is beautiful in my neighbors’ souls and come to their rescue.
Help me, O Lord, that my ears may be merciful, so that I may give heed to my neighbours’ needs and not be indifferent to their pains and moanings.
Help me, O Lord, that my tongue may be merciful, so that I should never speak negatively of my neighbour, but have a word of comfort and forgiveness for all.
Help me, O Lord, that my hands may be merciful and filled with good deeds, so that I may do only good to my neighbors and take upon myself the more difficult and toilsome tasks.
Help me, O Lord, that my feet may be merciful, so that I may hurry to assist my neighbour, overcoming my own fatigue and weariness (...)
Help me, O Lord, that my heart may be merciful so that I myself may feel all the sufferings of my neighbour. (...)

May Your mercy, O Lord, rest upon me" (Diary 163).

Prayer - St. Maria Faustina Helena Kowalska

"Prayer. – A soul arms itself by prayer for all kinds of combat. In whatever state the soul may be, it ought to pray. A soul which is pure and beautiful must pray, or else it will lose its beauty; a soul which is striving after this purity must pray, or else it will never attain it; a soul which is newly converted must pray, or else it will fall again; a sinful soul, plunged in sins, must pray so that it might rise again. There is no soul which is not bound to pray, for every single grace comes to the soul through prayer" (Diary 146).

"...A soul should be faithful to prayer despite torments, dryness, and temptations; because oftentimes the realization of God’s great plans depends mainly on such prayer. If we do not persevere in such prayer, we frustrate what the Lord wanted to do through us or within us. Let every soul remember these words: 'And being in anguish, He prayed longer'" (Diary 872).

"Patience, prayer and silence – these are what give strength to the soul. There are moments when one should be silent, and when it would be inappropriate to talk with creatures; these are the moments when one is dissatisfied with oneself, and when the soul feels as weak as a little child. Then the soul clings to God with all its might. At such times, I live solely by faith..."  (Diary 944).

"Silence is a sword in the spiritual struggle...The silent soul is capable of attaining the closest union with God. It lives almost always under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. God works in a silent soul without hindrance" (Diary 477).

"We should often pray to the Holy Spirit for this grace of prudence. Prudence consists in discretion, rational reflection and courageous resolution. The final decision is always up to us" (Diary 1106).

"The Lord Himself moves me to write prayers and hymns about His mercy..." (Diary 1593).

Rational reflection and courageous resolution. The final decision is always up to us" (Diary 1106)

"Today Jesus said to me,

"I desire that you know more profoundly the love that burns in My Heart for souls, and you will understand this when you meditate upon My Passion. Call upon My mercy on behalf of sinners; I desire their salvation. When you say this prayer, with a contrite heart and with faith on behalf of some sinner, I will give him the grace of conversion. This is the prayer:

“O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of Mercy for us, I trust in You (Diary 186-187).

"You will prepare the world for My final coming." (Diary 429)
