From the Father

god1

(I am feeling a bit under the weather today. But it has been on my mind to reprint this message from the Father I received on July 5, 2013. It speaks for itself.)

Right around the turn of the millennium, my heavenly visitors often began speaking to me without the use of language at all. It is breathtaking when they do, much quicker and purer and more complete – but it is very intense. Thick…I might say. Until today (July 5, 2013), they have continued to use language for the most important messages I am to convey. But now, I am instructed to give you a message from the Father, specifically for America but also for the whole world, that was given me without the use of language. It was not given me directly by the Father, but through His Messenger. In short, I am expected to translate.


When they speak to me in this way, I often ponder for days to understand in my way what was given in an instant to me. When I have tried to explain to someone – usually one of my priests – what was said, the translation invariably comes out impoverished. I can’t help that. Language, itself, is necessary to us in this world but is an impoverished form of communication – and I am just a little fellow, trying to get it right but not all that capable. There is always the temptation to add something I think important or to omit something that embarrasses or troubles me. When I avoid these temptations, it still comes out impoverished; a very poor, tarnished copy of the pure original message. But it pleases the Lord that I both convey as truly as I can what I am told and take full responsibility for the telling of it, including the warts that crop up in my little effort. So, I write this in obedience – and remind you that, despite the quotation marks, it is a feeble translation:

Thus says the Father:


“My children, I have not withdrawn the hand of My mercy from you, despite the depth and breadth of your rebellion against Me. I gave you a land, a nation formed in My image, to be a light to the nations. For all your foolishness, you began well. Like My Church, it was a nation to which anyone who accepted the principles it espoused could belong fully, not as a guest or a stranger, but as an heir. In your struggling way you lived the principles of fruitfulness, dignity, charity, fortitude and courage. You even lived a great civil war to extend those virtues to all My children, recognizing both your reliance on Me and that there are no children of a lesser god. And so I blessed you, that My light might shine through you with brilliant clarity as a sign of hope for all the nations for what I intend for My children.

“But with prosperity and pre-eminence, your love grew cold. You say, ‘Look what we have wrought,’ rather than ‘Look what God has wrought.’ So for the last few decades, I have restrained My hand of mercy that you might, indeed, see what you have wrought. Your hearts have only grown harder and more defiant. Now I stay My hand for a time that you may know the bitter fruit of the evil harvest you have sown. It is only for a short season, but the terror and despair will be like none you have ever known before.

“I send to you My most favored daughter, Mary, the woman cloaked with the sun, to guide and defend you during the terrible pains of birth of the new world I shall give you once more. She spends her entire heaven praying on your behalf, acting as true mother to all of you as she is to the Incarnation of My Divine and Holy Son, yet many of you who call on Me treat her with loathing and contempt. I will no longer hear you if you do not honor My most favored daughter in your heart. Ask her to pray to me for you and I will forgive you.

“Now, even the leaders of your rebellion against Me are shaken – not so much as to acknowledge Me, but enough to wonder if their plans are perhaps not as elegant and well-crafted as they thought. This is the beginning of wisdom for those who will accept it. You must know that I love each of you with a true Father’s heart. Which of you, having a rebellious, self-destructive child, wishes for your child’s destruction? You wish, with passionate sorrow, for their reclamation because you love your child. Your love for your child is merely a pale reflection of My love for you. Remember, then, the tale of the prodigal son and welcome those who return with fullness, gratitude and celebration rather than resentment. I rejoice when any of My children are restored to the life I intend for them. So shall you.

“Know that you will be held to account for every soul that you could have given effective witness to but did not because of anger, resentment or fear. Know also that you will be held to account for every servant of the evil one that you did not defend My people against out of a false sense of compassion or indulgence. I know this is impossible to you. You are well told to acknowledge Me in all things, then take the next right step and be a sign of hope to those around you. If you do that, I will draw fruit even from your errors and you may walk in humble confidence of My mercy.

“Do not think that any of you can exempt yourself from the bitter fruit of the harvest you have sown. Do you pride yourself on your intellect? It is not even a grain of sand in the ocean of My universe. Your wealth? Mere paper and paste that is passing away. Your position? Not as substantial as a puff of smoke on a windy day. I am your only source of security and hope. Defend My honor with the resolve of My Holy and Divine Son at the temple and I will send My most favored daughter to begin the re-conversion of the world. Minister to your brothers and sisters even from the midst of your sorrow and want and, at the moment you think all is lost, I will send My most favored daughter to rescue you once more.

“Know this, though. I allow your disorder to strike with terrible, prolonged fury so that you will remember the consequences of relying on yourselves without acknowledging Me or seeking My blessing and guidance. After you are rescued this time, when you fall away again, the only respite you will have is the respite of the grave. I sent my Archangel Gabriel to My servant, Charlie, 13 years ago with instructions that he must ‘…tell you true and you must choose or perish.’ Though he, too, is a vain and foolish child, he has been faithful in this and has told you true. Now the time of harvest has arrived and you must choose or perish.”

      Hi Donna,

      No problem asking, but I prefer not to talk about that publicly – and rarely privately. It just encourages a certain useless speculation, I think…and I imagine God can appear in different ways in order to make the appearance as gentle as possible to whomever He appears to.

    • According to traditional Catholic philosophy and theology God is absolutely simple in that He has no parts whatsoever. He is not a form that would be distributed in three dimensional space, but is *totally* present at each point in space and time in His absolute simplicity. He is also infinite, and the highest possible infinity as well. In scholastic terms He is purely actual without the possibility of being anything greater or different. This is all deduced from the fact that our universe is *contingent* (can be other than what it is or possibly non-existent), so it requires a God to ultimately explain why it exists and is the way it is. God does not need a cause because He is *necessary* rather than contingent. A necessary being cannot be other or greater than what it is, so is purely actual (the highest possible infinity), and His absolute simplicity is explained by the fact that God being necessary is absolutely primary: if He had parts, those parts would be in some manner prior to God contradicting His absolute primacy.

      This somewhat complex explanation is to show that God is understood through concepts (universals) rather than objects present to our senses. In this life He is known by analogy rather than as He is in Himself. In the next life, the vision of God will be held by the mind, elevated to behold His infinite splendor, rather than by the physical eyes.

      God is sometimes depicted as an old man, or He may appear in corporeal form in vision, but these are mere symbols of God, not what He really looks like. He is infinitely beyond anything that can by understood by the mind or perceived by the senses.

    Mr. Johnston,
    This posting further emphasizes our need for spiritual direction, which might help the average lay person be accountable to what God has called him/her. It surely helps to have feedback in the spiritual life as well as checks and balances . Like Paul, we may not know of anything counting against us, but iron does sharpen iron.
    I live in AZ and would be willing to volunteer in the vetting process you described. I don’t think you have recognized my email yet so will wait hear.

  4. Charlie, this is not “news” to me; it is confirmation of what I know deep inside of me. It is not that I escape fear and sorrow altogether, but I know the answer…The Father is our hope, our only refuge, and our security in the time to come. Jesus knew what was before Him, He bowed to His Father in honor and obedience; then He had to walk through it. For the Watchmen who have been chosen to “carry this Word inside their hearts” I cannot imagine the immense responsibility you walk in as too for Mark Mallett. I have prayed for Mother Mary’s Mission for many years. What a responsibility she has been given but she is pure and holy, loved and graced by the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Thank you Charlie, for your obedient, humble soul and spirit. Shirley B

    Charlie,

    I’m sorry you are not feeling well. Hoping you feel better soon.

    Can you explain what the Father means when He says “a false sense of compassion or indulgence”? Is He referring to abortion or euthanasia?

    Will we be able to tell whether someone is truly sincere or whether they are planning to harm us, yet act sincere?

      Well, Becky, I have translated this as best I can. I would not act as final arbiter of what He means by this, but my sense is that if someone is troubling the faithful and you could prevent it, but you don’t, you will be held responsible for that. If someone physically attacks someone and you could intervene but don’t – thinking that refraining from any confrontation is God’s way – you will be held to account. On abortion and euthanasia, that has become cultural wide. there are many who work to stop it and theirs is noble work.

      As far as being able to tell whether someone is truly sincere or not, as always, you will have to use your judgment, while acknowledging God. I know there are some out there who claim we are going to have all sorts of magical help…glowing circles on people’s foreheads and such. We are not. God works in homely ways – and we have to turn our hearts to Him in trust. Any mystical signs will be few and far between – and more individual offers of consolation. God wants us to turn to Him fully – and to fully use our whole mind, body and soul to make prudent judgments. He will correct our errors – and even draw fruit from them – if we always acknowledge him. But those who are expecting all sorts of magic for the “chosen” ones as if this is a chapter of the Lord of the Rings are going to be deeply disappointed.

        Charlie,
        Yesterday, I was driving south on the NYS Northway from a visit to my Parents. I noticed in my rearview mirror a Blue Tractor trailer bearing down on me and swerving a bit. I realized this guy needs to take a break. As I was in a prayer, i thought God please help this Trucker.

        Upon looking up, i see a sign for a rest area on my right. The trucker is still rocking n rolling (not too much) so I touch my right blinker two times (blink, blink) praying he notices. Indeed he does and I observe his right turn signal go on. I immediately reply with a touch of my hazards (blink, blink) and continue on my way praising God and thanking Him for the Next, Right Step.

        Acknowledge God (prayer), Take the next, right step (turn signal) and be a sign of hope (hazards).

        Cheers,
        Sean

      If I may, the false sense of compassion or indulgence can be referenced from both acts you mentioned and many more that mankind has chosen for his own response to feeling compassion without it being truly God’s plan. Liberal social justice has brought about the worst ideals of false compassion and indulgence in our country of America cloaked as a great good but ultimately will be to our downfall. They include false rights as right to choose, right to healthcare, rights to equal marriage, etc. As was read in the Gospel Sunday Peter reacted to Jesus statement that he would soon be put to death by telling Jesus that it could not be so that the Son of Man could have such a thing occur as God could not permit it surely. Jesus rebuked Peter saying “get behind me Satan” so as to relay that such a thought of false compassion was made only from man and not of God. Also, we ourselves will not be certain of much false human sincerity and there will be an abundance more of confusion and deceit which our only reliance should be fully on God and His mother Mary through fasting, suffering, and prayer to be our constant refuge. This in itself is no guarantee of bodily protection but in the realm of Divine Mercy our souls are of the ultimate of importance and we MUST trust in His will be done.

      God Bless you!

          One example of false compassion that has never left me was when I met this lady once. She was very kind & gentle, in a hippy kind of way. I loved her immediately (which is my usual reaction to most people). She then told me that her ministry, per se, was to volunteer at abortion clinics to hold the hands of unaccompanied women during their ordeal.
          I was speechless.
          All I could say was “Oh no,”

          Now THIS may very well be marked as my own failure to defend an attack against the faithful by not doing more than simply saying “oh no” when faced with such error because of my own vanity.

  8. Charlie, I am watching closely the plan you are developing for spiritual direction for lay people. I am trying so hard to hear and to do the Father’s Will, but there are times when I’ve acted on what I think I understand and then begin to question my understanding later. I will go forward without spending enough time pondering what I “hear” because I am anxious to give and to act on my Fiat as an act of love and trust. I speak about this today because I am presently in that place where I am questioning my decision as I become more and more aware of the effect it is having on my children and grandchildren. I feel like I’ve abandoned them, and I sense that they also feel abandoned by me. I have seen some good fruit here since I made this move, and I take every opportunity to spread the love of God in the place I am in. I certainly don’t do anything special, I just live my ordinary life, but I do think the Lord is using me just to be that sign of hope you talk about. In every encounter I can feel the joy bubbling up in my heart and flowing out to the people around me, also there is joy in the very atmosphere. I don’t know if I’m making any sense to you at all, but I needed to talk about it. I want to always take the next right step, but I’m not sure I am using the best means of discerning what that is. You pray for me and I pray for you. God bless you.

      Oh, thank you for bringing this up, Nancy. Your children and grandchildren are souls God has put in your particular care. Their legitimate needs always come first. So if you feel you have abandoned them – and they feel abandoned, then you have gotten a bit off course. Don’t worry…you try and stumble a little. People should value stumbles more, for you can’t stumble unless you try to move. Remember, this is an ordinary – a simple way. And the simple way is to always care first for those God has specifically put in your care. That is the next right step. Late this month I will post a piece – and maybe a video on this subject. For now, God does not ask you to do anything extraordinary…just what is right in front of you. The first thing is to make a joyful home – and a joyful refuge – for those God has put in your care. There are all sorts of refuge – but in any you should feel safe, loved, and important. Do that for your family first. What time you have left over after you care for your family, your friends – and for your own peace – is the time you should offer for others. I am not saying it as well here as I want to…but this is something I am working on right now. Scale back a little. Smaller, more manageable steps often accomplish more.

      • Thank you so much for responding today. I know that my family comes first, and that is what made it so terribly difficult for me to move. My husband died in March of 2013 and it was exactly 1 year later that I sold my house and moved to SD (my home was in St. Paul, MN all my life). I believed that was what the Lord was asking my to do, and when everything fell into place in a near-perfect manner, that confirmed it in my mind. I never dreamed how traumatic this would be for my children and grandchildren. Two of them are actually suffering terribly, and all I want to do is be near them again to be their strong support, as they have always been for me. I have been falling more and more deeply into depression – partly because I fear I’ve made the wrong decision and partly because, in addition to grieving the loss of my husband, I am now grieving the loss I feel from not being near my children. So my struggle is, am I right in thinking that, yes this is where God has planned for me to be, but it just isn’t the right time? Or is my sadness causing me to be tempted to change course, weakening my resolve to accept whatever sacrifice in order to do God’s Will? See what I mean about needing direction? I don’t expect you to figure this out for me. Your advice has the ring of truth to it, and I am going to ponder a lot longer this time in order to make the next Right Step. Thank you, and please pray for me. I appreciate your wisdom very much.

        Charlie, I have been saving this email. I had to wade through a lot of slime today, and now I am finished at least for tonight. A priest very closely linked with the Bishop has known me for many years. He has been open to discussing with me the state of the world. I have not introduced him to what I believe on this aspect of things, but our next visit will because I will tell him about my trip to Medjugorje in three weeks. I sort of edge in slowly.I also want to give the administrator information about the state of the banks and the US dollar. So tonight I was grovelling through sites on the condition of the US in all aspects and printing essentials off. I knew that is was going to not only need a long, very refreshing, cold drink of living water, but to plunge into an entire pool. And Our Eternal Father’s message was exactly both. Inside and outside, how grateful I am.
        I know that I have to limit what I do, even though I have gained more energy. Your words above are also directly spoken to me. “Scale back a little. Smaller, more manageable steps often accomplish more.” (Spiritual direction?) Whenever I overtax myself, depression rears it’s ugly head, but I’ve learned to let my body sleep and regain my balance which it does within a couple of days.
        Scale back, scale back – praying today I made a choice not to function in two parishes. I lector in a second parish, because there are so really, really few who will Sunday evening at 6 pm. However, that usually means that I can’t really do anything for a couple of days.
        Our Father’s words are as much directed to Canadians as to Americans. We have been paying for abortion from our taxes since 1970. You are just beginning to be faced with that prospect. Our Bishops have never retracted the infamous “Winnipeg Statement”. And pile on there our individual sins (we have as good or better a divorce rate), and the knowledge of the Cathoic faith has been abysmal since Vatican II. Thank God, and it is Him, that has improved as has the Liturgy in the past few years. And our Diocese has been very, very blessed with the Bishops we have had, and the priests. That doesn’t mean I haven’t heard the odd horror story from across the provinces.
        I will be reading Eternal Father’s words over and over because not only are they true, but they shine with hope. Thanks for verifying what I know I need to do. You put it so well. Bev

      Nancy: My heart really ached for you as you spoke of your children and grandchildren. God’ plan in my life was that I would never have any grandchildren, and so to me they always seem so terrible precious. I don’t know if you are working, of the conditions of your life. I wondered if it were possible for you to maybe take a “vacation” back to where they are? Two possible outcomes may ensue: You can let them know that far from being abandoned, they are all the uppermost light and love in your life. Second, you might be able to discern if going back is perhaps part of God’s plan. You have learned even more being away from them how very much they mean to you. If it is part of His plan you will find that there is work in every part of his vineyard. The physical “where” is not as important, because He always provides His willing workers with lots to do.Often the problem (like mine right now) is discerning not overdoing more than what’s possible. Seeing them physically, would give a gift to them and to you. If that is not possible, I know the computer and webcam has woven families who have no choice about where they must live, a way of knitting the family together….even if a three year old shows what he’s colored to Gramma.

      • Thank you again, Charlie. Your words are like a balm to my heart. When I woke up this morning, my mind was clear (thank you for your prayers) and the Holy Spirit shed light on my confusion. I should have known.. .that old enemy knows right where to hit me – in my maternal heart! You are right, the separation these past few months have greatly increased my affections for these precious people in my life, which is why I have been missing them all the more. We actually have more intimate contact now that we are apart than we had when I was there, and our relationship has deepened. Yes, we are all sad for the parting – it is something we have never experienced before. But I know they are behind me 100% in my choosing to follow Jesus to the ends of the earth if necessary. Fortunately, He has only asked me to go “next door” here in SD. As I said, the enemy almost got me, but it was because I was not careful to not be swept away by my emotions. Another lesson learned. I know I will be fine and so will they. The Good Shepherd will watch over all of us and lead us into His holy will, if we only trust Him without wavering. I wavered. But He brought me back to safety, thanks be to God. Bless you for listening, caring and guiding, dear and faithful servant.

          Nancy,
          I too up and moved after living in a place for seventeen years and seven children. Our Lord told me so strongly in prayer to ‘get off the coast’ that it was like a fire under me. After discussing it with my husband and allowing him to process the possibility it took us a full two years to unfold the plan and implement it. We left four grown children, their families and many friends behind. It was obvious to us that this was God’s will for us and we utilized a good holy priest in our discerning and through his gifts he told us where we were to move and what the house was we were to move into! Every single door opened, and those that were slower to open were huge examples of patience and trust on our part.

          All in all, we now have lived in Montana for five years now ,minister to priests in our area, support our seminarians and are active in our new parish. We have been called selfish, and just about everything else for ‘abandoning’ our older kids and their families. We however see that it will be them coming to us when the times get tougher and many events happen on the coast. I don’t have to know WHAT happens, I’m just called to go forward in obedience. If through prayer and not an emotional ‘running away’ from your grief of losing your husband is the reason you left and you are serving God in a such a way as to bring joy to your life and others, then be at peace. Let your kids and grandkids come and visit and vacation! There are more and more people I am meeting that this is happening to. Our good Lord is putting us all in place.

I know that I will be staying here during the Storm, and I have always prayed that my children will follow.

    PS: Don’t forget your Guardian Angels guys. The more you speak to them the more they communicate with you. They long, they thirst for our friendship. They’ve waited many millennia for our birth, just to constantly be at our sides…let’s not ignore or forget them. They Love us.

    Dear Charlie,

    I am now feeling regret for my impatience for the culmination of events.

    I have learned so much from reading your posts and thank you for your surrender, or, really, your “fiat.” There are VERY FEW people yet, that I can talk to about such things and your writings are like finding a life preserver in a riptide. I feel so ill prepared in so many ways, but then so many are going to be utterly blindsided. I fear that I will still be. My own “yes” is so weak, and not to be judgmental, most people I know don’t seem to even have a “maybe.”

    I humbly submit that I think your translation of the Father’s words must be pretty good because I have quoted you, already repeatedly, unaware that they were/are His words about taking the next right step and being a sign of hope. They have resonated deeply in my being. These are words to cling to and to help us remain focused. I was filled with joy when I read that these were the Father’s words because, “my sheep know my voice” and I do desire to be in His flock. I love, love, love the Father.

    Thank you for your article, and the link to the article, on the Little Flower in another post. I saved the images. I never saw the Joan of Arc one before. I loved it.

    God bless you, Charlie.

    Dearest Charlie,
    Before taking a plane across America this Labor Day weekend, I went to my small reserve of precious reading and knew I was meant to take along the copy of Little Flower’s letters, in view of your strong intuition on the subject of her role in the project for Spiritual Direction. I soon came upon what I think was the intended passage for all of us. It is found in her letter to Mother Agnes of Jesus in which she talks about the Christmas Grace. At one point, she begins paraphrasing from Saint John of the Cross in Dark Night of the Soul (stanza 3) where he says : ” I had no guide nor light except for that which shone in my heart , that light which guided me more surely than the light at noon-day, where He who knows me perfectly awaits”. The soul lingers, looking for its spiritual direction (orientation, heading, bearings) and finds it anchored within the heart! This “waiting” place also refers to the brilliant noon-day sun at Jacob’s Well , where the Samaritan encountered the Incarnate Living Waters for the first time. She heard of His supernatural Thirst that day, when she surely came to quench her own natural thirst at the well. Therese compares the Well to the Carmel, where she was eventually able to drink deeply of the Living Waters. Indeed, she waited for what seemed a very long time before entering these waters, that were to quench the flames of her intimate suffering, but also would produce flames of a whole other variety : the Living Flame of Love ! The passage is also a veiled reference to the Hebrew’s Exodus in the long desert of purification, where they are lead by the Holy Spirit: under the sign of a Column of Cloud by day, and under the sign of the Column of Fire by night.
    We are heading into the deepest , darkness night we could possibly imagine. We are heading into the unfathomable hunger and thirst of the desert. And to give us the only Spiritual Direction we need , the Lord will graciously do for us as He has always done for all those who seek Him : increase our capacity to DESIRE Him , in order to increase the Measure of His Mercy, His Grace, His Love, His Presence. There comes a whole new meaning to the words of the Baptist : All the more I must decrease , so all the more He may increase. This is a law of physics that finds its parallel in the spiritual dimension : the greater the void , the greater the infilling of the void becomes possible ! Therese noticed this also : that the Lord empties a soul more and more so that He may fill it, more and more. The greater the flame of desire He places in a soul, the greater He intends to satisfy it, with superabundance! In the increasing darkness, He will graciously ever-increase our desire for Light. The more the lies are unveiled , the more our desire for Truth will grow. In the desert, He will magnify our thirst for Living Waters… Our hunger for His Word and His Eucharist. The colder hearts become , the more our desire for His Perfect Love will increase. And in this manner, He will allow us to taste what is His Desire for us : because the Holy Spirit always PRECEDES US …we love because He loved us FIRST and we desire Him because He desired us FIRST !
    The Father’s Love is Self-Emptying, as a model for our self-emptying through the Son. His love is Eucharistic because it is a Holocaust. And a holocaust always involves …FIRE ! A true holocaust must be one that is burned. A burnt offering. Is that not the true purpose of the Flame of Love : that by the sheer Grace of God, we would somehow come to desire to be consumed, martyred even, in the Living Flame of Love ? Is it not exactly the Act of Offering Therese was inspired to make in the name of Merciful Love ? Is it not what happens to the Trio in the Fiery Furnace of Daniel 3, producing a song of praise and adoration that the consecrated souls of the Universal Church sing each morning at daybreak, in order to honor the Blessed Trinity ?
    Our Father in Heaven will never abandon us to the Darkness or to the Desert, because His Flame of Love is Eternal. Faithful and True. Unquenchable. Ardent. Burning with love… for Mankind ! The Father makes Himself a First Holocaust of Love in sending us His Only Begotten Son. He who has seen the Father has seen the Son. He who has seen the Son has seen the Father. ONE HEART. ONE FLAME. ONE GLORY. ONE DIRECTION : TOWARDS LOVE. The Father and the Son desire for our hearts to bear the same flame that is Theirs , the Flame of Love that comes from the Throne of the Blessed Trinity.
    I believe there is no other “spiritual direction” for us to move in : to turn our faces towards the Living Flame of Love . The flame is revealed in the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, in the Eucharistic Face of Jesus. There is not a doubt in my mind : the hearth and epicenter for every Sacred Refuge will be the Eucharistic Presence of Jesus. Anything we can do now to encourage others in Eucharist Adoration and turn our own faces towards His Real Presence is surely of supreme importance. The final goal of Evangelization means physically bringing others before His Eucharistic Presence, especially those who do not yet know Him. The Field Hospital is meant to be like a Tent placed over Jacob’s Well ! Peter somehow knew this at Tabor when he said to the Transfigured Christ : ” Lord, shall we set up a tent for you ?” Or even in the Song of Songs, chapter 1 : ” Tell me , you whom my soul loves, where you pasture your flock, where you make it lie down at noon; for why should I be like one who wanders beside the flocks of your companions? If you do not know, O fairest among women, follow in the tracks of the flock, and pasture your kids beside the shepherd’s tents” ! As soon as we turn our faces towards the Glory of His Face, then our own faces begin to radiate His and our own hearts become enflamed with His. There is no other way for us to be Light or Life or Truth or Hope or Joy or Love in our world until we are radiant signs of Him : like a Pillar of Cloud by day or a Pillar of Fire by night.
    The only human heart that truly excelled in the Art of Perfect Eucharistic Desire was the Blessed Virgin Mary, because Her Immaculate Heart was the most perfect of Living Tabernacles, an impeccable Tent of Meeting for the Blessed Trinity. The First Fruits of that Perfect Desire came at Pentecost … and by her unfathomable desire, She drew down the flames from the Throne above. (By a miracle of God’s Grace and Mercy, it happens every Easter at the Holy Sepulcher , still ! ) And so, Therese concludes her passage in the letter with exactly that realization: It is Mother Mary whose sure and faithful spiritual direction encouraged and lead her by the hand to the shoreline of her true vocation : MERCIFUL LOVE !!!
    Oui. C’est aussi simple que cela…pour la Gloire de Dieu ! Avec toute ma tendresse et gratitude fraternelle, L.

    1. O living flame of love
    that tenderly wounds my soul
    in its deepest center! Since
    now you are not oppressive,
    now consummate! if it be your will:
    tear through the veil of this sweet encounter!

    2. O sweet cautery,
    O delightful wound!
    O gentle hand! O delicate touch
    that tastes of eternal life
    and pays every debt!
    In killing you changed death to life.

    3. O lamps of fire!
    in whose splendors
    the deep caverns of feeling,
    once obscure and blind,
    now give forth, so rarely, so exquisitely,
    both warmth and light to their Beloved.

    4. How gently and lovingly
    you wake in my heart,
    where in secret you dwell alone;
    and in your sweet breathing,
    filled with good and glory,
    how tenderly you swell my heart with love.

    “Living Flame of Love” , Saint John of the Cross…

HE, Our FATHER, holds our hands and lets go at times so we can take these baby steps, but He’s always so close, to pick us up when we fall, dusts us off and set us on the course again. We have to Trust Him and so we ask our Fairest Lady and Queen, our Mummy dearest, to obtain that Grace of Trust in GOD that she had here on earth.

      • Charlie, this is not “news” to me; it is a confirmation of what I know deep inside of me. It is not that I escape fear and sorrow altogether, but I know the answer…The Father is our hope, our only refuge, and our security in the time to come. Jesus knew what was before Him. He bowed to His Father in honor and obedience; then He had to walk through it. For the Watchmen who have been chosen to “carry this Word inside their hearts,” I cannot imagine the immense responsibility you walk in as too for Mark Mallett. I have prayed for Mother Mary’s Mission for many years. What a responsibility she has been given but she is pure and holy, loved and graced by the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Thank you Charlie, for your obedient, humble soul and spirit. Shirley B.

      I think that my understanding of the Flame of Love is different than how you are expressing it. Or perhaps I am thinking of a different expression of the “Flame of Love”.

      What I am referring to is the private revelations regarding same from Elizabeth Kindelmann, Hungarian mother who received locutions from Jesus and Mary, and died 1985. Before her death she recorded her Spiritual Diary which received the Imprimatur of Cardinal Peter Erdo in Mexico, authorizing publication and propagation of the messages. It has also received Imprimaturs from Bishops in Mexico, Costa Rica, Peru, and the United States.

      Through her, The Virgin Mary placed into our hands a new means to BLIND Satan: the Flame of Love of Her Immaculate Heart. On Pelianito’s Blog there the “Flame of Love” that is seven pages. The essence is for all who wish to, add into the Hail Mary when saying the Rosary, the words: “Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, spread the effect of grace of Thy Flame of Love over all of humanity, now and at the hour of our death. Amen. Naturally, this is done when saying the rosary privately.
      “…..your effort will not be in vain. If the whole world is united to Me, the soft light of My Flame of Love will then burn and set the globe aflame. Satan will be humiliated and made incapable of using his power any longer, provided this time of preparation is not indefinitely prolonged! No, do not prolong it! Do not procrastinate in response to My holy requests!”
      “My daughter, I am providing you with so powerful a grace: the burning Flame of Love from My Heart that has never before been offered as it is now. Ever since the Word became Flesh, I have not undertaken a greater movement than the Flame of Love from My Heart who rushes to you. Till now, nothing could blind Satan as much. And it is up to you not to reject it, for this rejection would simply spell disaster.”

      The other thrust I believe, is that Therese was obligated to write what she was ordered by her superiors in order that each person could follow her “Little Way”, and with her intercession and care, learn to become flames of love until we are at last all flames of Love in heaven eternally.
      She hunted and hunted how her longing to be “all” the every vocation to live and honor God, and believed she finally found her vocation. It was that which lead her to request permission to make her Oblation to God. She cried out that at last she had found her vocation. It was to be Love in the Heart of the Church! In this way she was “all”. Following her, striving each day to live the simple duty of the moment, the next right step, we all become living flames of love–blazing, yet unconsumed, like the burning bush.

    Connecting the dots on the Flame of Love :

    We learn from the Book of Revelation, in the Letter to the Church at Laodicea, how painful it is for the Lord when He finds our fervor has waned, and that we are lukewarm of heart. Jesus spoke to Saint Margaret Mary and Saint Faustina about the Fire of His Heart, and how He longs to be loved by us with a similar degree of desire, a burning sort of ardent love. Jesus, as Our Creator and First Born of the Universe, knows the fundamental natural law that we can only “fight fire with fire”. He also knows that this Law has a spiritual counterpart : the flame of love or the flame of hate. He has known since the beginning of time that satan would one day seek to destroy the earth by his deadly fires . And Jesus also knew that one day our hearts would grow very cold, having almost no link to His Heart of Fire any longer. Saint Therese de Lisieux says that the Fire of Purgatory purifies whereas the Fire of Love sanctifies. In Holy Scripture (such as Isaiah 6) we read about the Flame in Heaven at the Throne of the Blessed Trinity. We also read about the eternal fires in Hell. Fire is an important element and sign all over the Bible. In Revelation chapter 3 we read :

    14
    “To the angel of the church in Laodicea,* write this:
    ‘The Amen, the faithful and true witness, the source of God’s creation, says this:h
    15
    “I know your works; I know that you are neither cold nor hot.* I wish you were either cold or hot.
    16
    * So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.
    17
    * i For you say, ‘I am rich and affluent and have no need of anything,’ and yet do not realize that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked.
    18
    I advise you to buy from me gold refined by fire* so that you may be rich, and white garments to put on so that your shameful nakedness may not be exposed, and buy ointment to smear on your eyes so that you may see.
    19
    Those whom I love, I reprove and chastise. Be earnest, therefore, and repent.j
    20
    “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, [then] I will enter his house and dine with him, and he with me.*
    21
    I will give the victor the right to sit with me on my throne, as I myself first won the victory and sit with my Father on his throne.k
    22
    “Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”;”

    It is very interesting to note here that material bounty and wealth seem to make human hearts grow cold ! So the Lord will allow us to “hunger and thirst” in a temporal manner so that we begin to have a spiritual “hunger and thirst” for Him. Laodicea was considered materially a place of wealth, yet the people have lost the only true treasure there is : Fervent Faith in God.

    Indeed, the greatest Flame of Love ever found in a human heart surely is found in the Flame of Mary’s Heart. The Holy Family lived in great material poverty but extreme bounty of heart. Her Heart was anything but lukewarm, its effects bearing tremendous fruits of love. Jesus knows this, too : That one day Our Lady will have to share Her Flame with us, in order to rekindle our very dark and very cold hearts. She is the keeper of this Fire and it will be from within Her Heart living inside our hearts that the New Fire will arise, from heart to heart, from hearth to hearth, all across the earth. This is what is meant by Her Triumph : She will be the Great Spark that starts the Victory Fire for Her Son. Or rather, the flame of Her Immaculate Heart will be the “kindling” when Jesus comes to Cast His Fire upon the earth. By the Grace of God, our hearths will already be linked together in Charity and quite kindling away…so that The Flame of the Sacred Heart will take off instantly in great glory !

    This is also why Our Lady asked servant of God, Elisabeth Kindelmann (And please note her name, because the name is also the mission : Kindel + Man, to kindle is what we do to start a fire !) to use the words : “spread the effect of grace of the Flame of Love” all across the world through her, meaning as the Holy Rosary is recited. Mary wants us to use Her “chain” in order to “link” all of our individual heart-hearth fires together. She will thus be able to use the “effect of grace” (and She is Full of its Effects !) as Mediatrix, a title and honor granted to Her by the Blessed Trinity in order to “bind” the links together, like one does in soldering a metal chain.
    So….Why does Our Lady talk about an “effect” ? An effect means the outward sign of something, that by which one understands its presence or recognizes it. Grace is quite invisible on its own, but its effects are palpable. We call them “fruits” because you can see them, in their effects. Fire is fire. But the “effect” of fire is multiple and varied : heat, burning, light, purifying, melting, etc… we know fire by its fruits or effects. Our Lady wanted us to comprehend the Nature of GRACE on a REAL level, a tangible and palpable level in order to sense the presence of this special Heart Grace called the Flame of Love. A heart on fire burns with desire (the Spark of Eros moves into the Flame of Agape and then turns outward, becoming “self-emptying” , which brings us right back to the notion of Eucharistic Love. (Deus Caritas Est, from B. XVI) . A heart on fire is warm and loving, generous, patient and affectionate. A heart on fire bears light and life. A heart on fire can catch other things on fire, and spreads its effects by connecting or linking people together. Everyone wants to hang out around a good fire ! We become a chain because of the effects of the Flame of Love. A heart on fire responds favorably to the Gentle Breeze of the Holy Spirit. So now, we can concretely begin to grasp what the Effects of the Graces that come from the Flame of Love really means for us, in time and in space. Grace takes on its own Nature through the action of its Effects. Grace Incarnate bears effects. And so all Fire has effects. Some are good and some are bad effects, depending on the degree and the variey, meaning the original source or intention.

    It is essential for us to understand the opposing “flames” that exist in our world. The evil fire that is borne of satanic worship and is currently giving “life” to ISIS ( one might learn a little about Zoro-Astrianism, which is the ancient worship of fire precisely located historically in the geographic regions of the world now under the deadly influence of Islamic violence. It would correspond to the 5 nations of Syria, Iraq, Iran , Afghanistan and Pakistan. The worship of fire is part of Islamic occult ritual ( and all pagan, occult rituals). Using the name of ISIS, these modern-day terrorists have also plugged into the power-source of a very ancient Egyptian goddess by the same name. (This is also why events in the Middle East are linked to events in Egypt) Isis is keeper of the deadly sort of “fire”… and she is a woman… the one sent to “counter” and battle Our Lady, clothed with the sun during the End Times. This is a very old battle between 2 women, one that finds its “Type” in Scripture , in the great and ancient jealousy or rivalry between Sarah and Hagar. We read about Sarah and Hagar especially in 2 places : Genesis Chapter 16 and then Saint Paul’s Letter to the Galatians Chapter 4. It is a story about freedom and slavery, about Nature and Grace. And about inheritance and fraternal jealousy. It is my firm belief that if we all prayed for mutual forgiveness and reconciliation between the ancestors of Sarah and Hagar, and by their active intercession , the foundations would be laid for the conversion of Islam and Israel. And PEACE would come to our world. The source of supply to the fire of hatred would be severed and extinguished. Our Holy Father attempted to start this peace process again on Pentecost Sunday , the Day of the Holy Fire, when he invited the ancestors of Sarah and Hagar into the Vatican gardens for a chat… Let us be certain that Pope Francis is a prophet and that he knows exactly what Our Lord and Blessed Mother want him to do. There should be no doubt in hearts about that…

    But of incomparable power and glory to any fire ISIS could ever hope to produce, Our Lady is clothed with the Holy Fire of the Son ! Here below is a recent entry from the website “Locutions” and are said to be the words of Mary , from August 26th :

    Mary : “
Human history continues on its path until some Movement arises, which points out a new direction. How many times such movements have saved the world and rescued human history before it succumbed to the evil of its own decisions. At the center of these movements were strong personalities surrounded by devout disciples.
    They knew how to spread their ideas so that many others joined in their fervor. The greater their numbers and the greater their devotion to their cause, the more powerful would be their impact.
Such was the vision of Jesus, as he gathered his disciples and taught them how to gather others. Released into human history was the great movement called Christianity which turned the world away from destruction and formed a new way of thinking and acting.
    What has happened to this Movement? It now embraces the whole world. Christians live everywhere in almost every culture. In some places and among some groups, the original fervor remains. However, in so many places and in the hearts of those who call themselves Christian, the fervor of Jesus has cooled down. Even the understanding of his goals have been lost. The Movement has been swallowed up. The light no longer goes forth. The fire has been extinguished. Many claim the name of Jesus but the throbbing power of his life does not flow in their hearts.
    This is why I act. This is my goal. More than any other disciple, I received the divine fire. It never grew cold in my heart. It always blazed with its initial fervor. Now I want to pour out this fire upon the whole Church. I take for myself, the words that Jesus used, “I have come to cast fire upon the earth”. If I do not cast this fire of divine love, rousing all believes to a new life in Christ, the human race will be unable to turn aside from its rush into a fire that will destroy all. “

    In conclusion, we must “fight fire with fire”. Jesus and Mary know this. They know that the Fire of Purgatory purifies and the Fire of Love sanctifies. I too believe we are being given a choice right now, just as the Heavenly Father said to Charlie :

    “Now the time of harvest has arrived and you must choose or perish.”

    We must choose or perish. Which fire will we choose ? The Harvest of the Angels is a Harvest by Fire, as Scripture tells us and as Sister Lucy was shown at Fatima. Which Fire will we choose ? The Flame of Love, in which we will eagerly give our lives for others, by the Grace of God, in Jesus’ Name we pray.

    AMEN. Marana tha !

    “What are the reasons for the murderous rampage currently being undertaken by the jihadist troops of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)? A decline in moral values in the West, coupled with a history of violent conquest within Islam, is behind the “diabolical” atrocities committed in Iraq and Syria by these Islamic militants, many of whom are uneducated and at the mercy of fundamentalist preachers.
    This is according to Jesuit Father Samir Khalil Samir, a leading scholar of Islam and a former student under professor Joseph Ratzinger.
    In this extensive Aug. 30 interview with the Register via telephone from Beirut, Father Samir, a native Egyptian, discusses how secular and Islamist intolerance are exacerbating a “clash of civilizations,” how education is crucial to eradicating the scourge of extremism and whether ISIS has a future. “

    ***

    “Would you say ISIS is in any way representative of true Islam?
    We hear, very often, Muslims say: ‟This has nothing to do with Islam.” This is a spontaneous reaction of Muslims on the street. But, in fact, it’s a false reaction. This is a part of Islam, and we can find it in the Quran itself and much more in the life of Mohammed, who had a very strong and violent attitude toward unbelievers.
    Mohammed was somewhat tolerant towards Jews and Christians. But he was absolutely intolerant to those who were neither Jews nor Christians. The only solution for them in the Quran and in the life of Mohammed was to convert or die.
    So these fanatics are following this line, with one difference: They call ‟unbeliever” (kāfir) anyone who is not like them, even the Shia, the Yazīdi or the Christian. In this case, the fanatics are not following the Quran and the sunnah [a Muslim way of life based on the teachings of Mohammed and the Quran]. But when they say, ‟We have to kill unbelievers, unless they become Muslim,” this is part of the teaching of Islam.
    The main thing to note is that violence is an element of Islam. Violence is not an element of Christianity. When Christians were using violence in wars and so on, they were not following the Gospel, nor the life of Christ. When Muslims are using it, they are following the Quran and the sunnah and Mohammed’s model. This is a very important point.”

    ***

    With all this in mind, do you think ISIS and these extremists have a future?
    They will have success for a while, but I hope for not too long. It’s unthinkable what they are doing. It is so inhuman that people don’t know how to react. It will last, and it could be some years. They are operating exactly as the Prophet did at the beginning, with war and conquest. Once you conquer a country, you do what you want with it. This is very, very dangerous, especially if these terrorists still receive money and weapons — then they won’t fear anything. In each case, they are “winners”: If they kill, they win; if they are killed, they win, because they believe they have won paradise. So they are “winning” in both cases, whatever happens. They have no principles or norms or values or standards, other than to literally apply sharia.
    The astonishing thing, as you said at the very beginning, is that they are fighting the immorality of the West and Western hedonism. But they are doing many more immoral things in the name of Islam.
    I don’t like to say this word, but, in a way, what they are doing is diabolical; it’s something the world has never seen in history. We’ve seen a lot of cruelty, but this is a planned cruelty. This is why I think there’s no future for them in the long term. But in the short term, they will win more and more, and we have to stop them. Now.

    Some personal thoughts on intercessory prayer and spiritual warfare :
    We cannot even momentarily think about fighting on a human level against these diabolical forces. Sending in our armies or bombing these nations by drones is positively a ridiculous option. Only prayer can make things happen. We must gather together and “storm Heaven”! There are 19 American Bishops about to head over to the Holy Land to pray for Peace there next week. Now THAT is a good initiative! The Lord says in Zachariah 4 : 6 … “Not by might nor by power but by My Spirit “ … are we humans able to accomplish any victory ! Especially against such a network regrouping or association of diabolical forces that are fully “supplied”, temporally and spiritually speaking . Right now it is just 2 nations (in appearance), but it will become a battleground including all 5 nations, before it is all said and done…. Daniel Chapter 11. Remember the place of Egypt in all of this, as well as Russia to the North and Greece to the South.
    Our Lady working with Archangel Michael will take care of things. Not us. We just have to ask Her: MARY , TAKE OVER !
    Remember how this Geo-Political Battle is all clearly prophesied in the Book of Daniel, chapters 10 and 11? It is important reading to do right now, I think. It helps us pray with stronger intention when we have a “picture” of what is going on. What we see on the temporal level is just a reflection of what is going on beyond the Veil, in the spiritual dimension.
    The diabolical battles are underpinned and supplied by Fallen Angels (demons) and so the only way to combat them is by the forces of Holy Angels. Fight Fire with Fire. It is my belief and personal opinion that we are to call on Our Lady Queen of Angels in this situation, asking her to cut off all the Sources of Supply to ISIS. She alone has been given authority to CRUSH THE HEAD OF SATAN with Her Heel. How does Our Lady gain or increase Her authority ? By our prayers and sacrifices. That is what is meant in Mystical Theology when we refer to a “source of supply”. It refers to the whole spiritual “system” surrounding a situation (or a person or a place) . Our Lady is “supplied” by: our consecrations to Her. Our prayers through Her. Our love of Her. Our speaking about Her. Our thinking and praying to Her. Our offerings and sacrifices made to Her. Every single DROP of it is received and distributed according to Her needs and discernment. She is the Mediatrix of Grace and Commanding General !!
    In the Song of Songs Chapter 6 we read : “ Who is this that looks forth like the dawn, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army with banners?” Our Lady will appear as a great and courageous warrior in battle. THAT is what she means about BLINDING SATAN !! Can you imagine what combined LIGHT that is: The sun , the moon, the stars, plus ALL OUR HEARTS ON FIRE ?? NO WAAAAAYYYY can Satan bear that kind of Light. The funny part is that it is JUST THE DAWN’s early light !! Because Jesus the Sun of Justice comes afterward…with His Healing Rays !
    For those who struggle with imagining Our Sweet Mother looking like a warrior…recall the story of Judith, a Biblical Type of Mary. Also recall and proclaim OFTEN the Magnificat, because that is the Battle Hymn we are to sing in Her honor. Saying the Magnificat ( which is prefigured in Judith’s Song of Thanksgiving) is yet another example of how the Children of Mary can INCREASE Her Supply of Grace, and make that Flame of Love shine brighter and brighter and brighter…til it becomes positively BLINDING. If you are a person who is visual, you might remember also the Battle Plan that we can read about found in the Book of Judith. Take out a map while reading, and see how they are similar to what is described in Daniel 11. This is where we are headed, and why reading Scripture can help us have a prayer intention that is clear and strong, mentally focused and strategically on target. Jesus tells us to gather together and ASK all things IN HIS HOLY NAME .
    Lord, send in the Holy Angels to do this battle for us, just as You have always done for Your Chosen People all throughout Time. We Praise You. We adore You. We glorify You. Holy is Your Name. Holy is Your Face. Holy and Eternal is Your Covenant of Love.
    May God arise. May His enemies be scattered. May those that hate Him flee from before His Face. My Jesus have Mercy. Glory be to the Father. To the Son. And to the Holy Spirit. Holy Mary, Mother of Mercy , pray for us who have recourse to Thee !

    AMEN AMEN AMEN to that , MARY! Let us storm heaven with the Divine Mercy Chaplet especially for the conversion of ISIS forces.

    O NANCY ! It is not my prayer in the least ! It comes from the first line of Psalm 68 (67) ! I love to proclaim the whole thing standing in an empty (apparently) church when possible (it is easy to find an empty church in France, and not so easy in America) . Our beloved and fearless leader, Charlie, mentioned not long ago his using the Holy Face chaplet while driving and that is what I was quoting in the text. It is all one and the same expression, but for the repetition of the key phrases the make up the chaplet. I have been using it especially lately in the Middle East. I just imagine the Lord settling in there in the Plains of Ninevah (Iraq), His Glory shining all about His Face, as He rises up in splendor, and zooooom ! The enemy scatters. Is divided. Conquered. Runs for the hills and never returns…. That is how the Hebrews obtained victory over and over and over, by calling on His Holy Presence. They would take the Ark of the Covenant out in procession, remember ? O if only we could set up Tents of Adoration in the desert sands, and process Our Lord out there , with a massive crowd of witnesses following behind ! Glory to God !
    Adonai gave the greatest prayer of blessing there ever was to Moses and Aaron in Numbers, Chapter 6. It is, once again, all about His Face : ” The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace”. You see, His Face is a blessing to those who fear Him, and a curse to those who hate Him.
    And there is nothing that packs the punch in Spiritual Combat like THE WORD : “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And before him no creature is hidden, but all are open and laid bare to the eyes of him with whom we have to do .” WOW ! The Promise of Hebrews 4 : 12 – 13 !!! That as a serious sword. Demons tremble at His Word and angels exult in praise and adoration ! Nothing and no one remains untouched by His Word. It is the same sword that pierces a heart in what is known as “conviction” in the Holy Spirit. That too can be a powerful prayer : ” Lord, convict him/her of Your Love ! May Your Word of Love pierce his/her heart ! ” The more we love, the more we know. That means a soul who does not yet love Him cannot yet know Him. ( we pray: “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”) We have no idea the power and impact of our words. Remember how James talks about taming the tongue ? He says that the tongue is a fire…setting on fire the cycle of nature , and set on fire by hell ” (chapter 3) . And there are good fires and bad fires…
    O ANNE ! I guess I am rather on fire at the moment, and I thank you each and all for being so patient and generous and charitable with reading me (or you can just scroll away and ignore it all) .In his compassionate largesse, Charlie knows how The Word can well up in a prophet’s heart until overflowing. I do apologize and will try to contain myself. At least until the nudges get too intense. May my brothers and sisters reading here in Christ receive these torrents of words as a sign of the Merciful Father’s great love for us…AMEN.

    CHARLIE, we are all praying for you : We place the Mantle of Mary, the Cloak of Saint Joseph, the Shield of Saint Michael, the Wings of the Holy Spirit and the Precious Blood of Jesus upon you, this Blog, and all of your activities for Holy Mother Church.

    I must say that I truly look forward to reading this blog. It is a soothing balm on my sorrowful soul. It nurtures, comforts and teaches by providing insight into the spiritual side of our daily existence. I am in awe at the amount of information being imparted.

    This site and all contained information is freely available and can be obtained anonymously, yet I feel compelled to post. If only to let you all know that many of us reading these prophecies and associated comments view them as a beacon of light in a very troubled world. If the rest of the silent majority of readers, are anything like me, they are infantile in their understanding of theology, don’t experience locutions or divine visitations, and are trying to discern good from bad and right from wrong. I feel that this site provides much of what I am seeking, so thank you for sharing your insights and for taking the time to post.

    I truly feel blessed to be a part of this small community and am deeply indebted to all of you, especially Charlie for his role as “Trail Boss” for leading and keeping the herd from drifting to far away.

    As I go through my travels, I am trying to balance the desire of readers for new, original material from me with the demands of time while I am in the field, so to speak. I have added a partial video from my New Jersey talk (they ran out of tape before it was over) to the Visit Videos link at the top. When I have down time, I will write new material, but I don’t have a lot of down time these days. I know some are waiting for the piece on the suffering of the innocent. It is important, but I am limited right now. This piece, from two years ago, is critically important. It is, by far, the longest soliloquy from the Father I ever got. It is exceedingly rare for Him to speak. I was in bed for three days after this. Some visitations are deeply exhausting.

      Good evening Charlie.
      I first stumbled across your video that was taped at EWTN by I think Scott Hahn a couple of weeks ago. WOW!!! I was overwhelmed with what you are saying your angel and God are telling you and for so long already! I am really interested in what our Father is telling you about the suffering of the innocent. I have an identical twin sister who has suffered for 30 some years with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). It was so bad that she even tried brain surgery, Deep Brain Stimulation 3 years ago. Her symptoms have gradually gotten so bad that we have had to have her admitted to a group home. We tried to care for her in our own homes, but with families of our own, it just became way more than we could handle. She says that she’s feels imprisoned in her own mind. I have never seen her more in extreme turmoil and pain than she is right now. Her constant checking of things that don’t matter and her extreme anxiety over shadows the real person and twin sister that she had been. Is all of her extreme suffering “the suffering of the innocent”? We are trying to make sense of all of this and it simply breaks our hearts to see her this way. We have been praying for years for her and things just seem to get worse. I know the devil tries to stick his ugly head in things, but shouldn’t our prayers knock him out of the game? We are trying to trust God in all of this. We just need someone like you to maybe shed some light on this for us. Thank you so much for reading this and thank you more for what you are doing to help others become a ray of hope to others especially with the intensity of the storm. God bless you and praise Jesus, Mary and Joseph and thanking the Holy Spirit for guiding and giving our whole family strength, especially my dear twin sister!!!

        Carrie, my prayers go up for your sister. I pray that she may be healed, but most of all, that she be a sign of hope to all she encounters. I have asked that the Lord send St. Padre Pio to comfort and guide her, to give her wisdom. I know the piece I am planning is important to many. When I am at home, I can come up with important pieces regularly, but it often takes me several days of uninterrupted contemplation and work to produce one. I have to wait until I have an extension of quiet time to do this one, for getting it wrong would be much worse than not doing it at all. It is the next meaty piece in the hopper – but it may be weeks before it gets finally extruded.

    Charlie, this writing of 2013 gave me goosebumps for various reasons which I do not need to embellish. You have told all the Father has been telling us for centuries through the prophets, and His choice of using you is a comfort to me. But, comfort is not part of God’s plan. He is allowing evil to do real damage which He has done in the past until we wake up to His mercy. He knows when we will do this, as He says here through you, You know you have my prayers as you bear these difficult knowledges given to you by angels. How can what you have said be against what exactly God has said in scripture? God does not fight God? God is a loving and forgiving God and never hurts His children woefully, we have done this to ourselves without His help. It is time we seek Him and His aid in all facets of our lives. We can do nothing without Him, but, we can sin much and sin after sin without any sorrow is just plain foolish. Thanks so much for hearing His voice hearken to your heart to replay this clearly spoken treasure from God’s own mouth and heart. God please lift us all to Your Heart! This is true freedom! True peace, real peace comes from God alone, let us first seek His kingdom and we will find Him. He is hidden in the smallest things which are sometimes the best things, us. We are His instruments. Let us go now and serve the Lord! Thanks Charlie for being God’s loving messenger. pam from NJ.

    Driving home today I was struck by how ungrateful we are for God’s super abundant graces, blessings and mercy. I was speaking to God the Father, apologizing for how basely all we His children treat Him. I asked Him what I could do beyond my current prayers and devotions to make reparation to Him? Then I came home and found this striking message from Him! I will need to re-read this a few more times.

    I don’t know if you can speak to this but I kept hearing a lot around Easter this year about a lunar Tetrad (four total lunar eclipses in a row ) someone coined the term “Blood Moons” I guess because these also occurred (and the final one will occur) on significant Jewish holidays , on Passover and on the feast of Tabernacle’s and they were linking it to biblical prophecies . What is your take on this? I also noticed the final in this Tetrad will occur on the final day of our Holy Fathers visit, Sept. 27th. Does Our Lord use these types of signs for us? I know He used a star for the wisemen!

  31. Our only refuge will be the Lord, Our Rock.
    The only preparations: a contrite heart, a sincere confession, and fruits of repentance.
    We only deserve Hell and if we insist, we’ll get it but in His wisdom God has used our sins as an opportunity to show His mercy. Oh happy ruin, that made His mercy known to us, such a beautiful reparation!
    This message confirmed what I believed for a long time, that America is a sign of God’s mercy in history. I live in South America where authoritarians and tyrants of every sign have oppressed the people for centuries. Here the model of the petty dictator was embraced form the beginning, the quick solution to everything: concentration and centralization of power as the solution to all our problems. Absolutely every country from Mexico to Argentina operate the same way: they believe their disease is the remedy and the remedies are the disease. It is a mindset that existed in Europe at the time of Caesar and is still alive there as it is here, the only thing that has changed is the shape of the dictatorship. The only different mindset ever known to this world were the Constitutional United States now defunct and awaiting resurrection.
    The sufferings God is bringing upon this nation are a sign of His love. Otherwise we would have perished long ago. Let us listen.

    This reminded me of Recessional a poem by Rudyard Kipling.

    God of our fathers, known of old—
    Lord of our far-flung battle line—
    Beneath whose awful hand we hold
    Dominion over palm and pine—
    Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
    Lest we forget—lest we forget!

    The tumult and the shouting dies—
    The Captains and the Kings depart—
    Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,
    An humble and a contrite heart.
    Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
    Lest we forget—lest we forget!

    Far-called our navies melt away—
    On dune and headland sinks the fire—
    Lo, all our pomp of yesterday
    Is one with Nineveh and Tyre!
    Judge of the Nations, spare us yet,
    Lest we forget—lest we forget!

    If, drunk with sight of power, we loose
    Wild tongues that have not Thee in awe—
    Such boasting as the Gentiles use,
    Or lesser breeds without the Law—
    Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
    Lest we forget—lest we forget!

    For heathen heart that puts her trust
    In reeking tube and iron shard—
    All valiant dust that builds on dust,
    And guarding calls not Thee to guard.
    For frantic boast and foolish word,
    Thy Mercy on Thy People, Lord!

    Amen.

I cannot remember since I was there in 1980 to 1981, when it was military govmt., still is, but, quieter than when the coup began and my dad had to leave as he was on a hit list of American businessmen to be killed if caught. So, I am so happy to have your acquaintance. You do see things properly. We here in the US are so foolish that we keep God out of the equation. We must fall into ruin to have God pick us up again. Thanks so much for reminding so many how fortunate we are in the US that we have freedom of religion, but, I have just learned that in New Mexico, in our southwest, a bomb was exploded in a Baptist church and one in a Catholic church.

These days when I refer to the US I use the term “Constitutional US” to refer to the old American order which I confine to the first 40 presidents. Paraphrasing Cool Hand Luke: “It’s a nice round (and biblical) number” that leaves out the New World Order acolytes of the Left and Right who came after President Reagan.

I think Our Lady of All Nations is really needed very badly now. She still is working very hard to bring people to Her Son, and it is working, and now, most folks here in the US have rightfully lost faith in any politician. It is just a matter of who has been put onto a throne and have plundered the power and control over large amounts of people who mean very little to them, except to tax us to death (literally). So, I cannot lose hope, as this is what we know we have, that the US will wake up. I never really bought into that greatest nation in the world jazz.

      My Lord, Carlos, that brings me back! Would you believe that in a secondary school (high school, for you in the U S) history text book back in the 70s here in Ireland it was still possible to quote that stanza from Kipling’s poem in the context of studying 19th century European imperialism. I’ve never forgotten it, because of its sheer power, and appropriateness.

      But it couldn’t be done now, not only because the actual text books themselves are hopelessly dumbed-down, but also because the kids just wouldn’t get the Scriptural reference in the way we would have back then. Not to mention the whole literary context, which to us back in those days was part of the atmosphere, dead white men being not then pariahs as they have now become. It would be a brave teacher who would now use that poem. Even assuming he, or she, had even heard of it, they being now all so much younger, and more brainwashed, than me 😉

      Thank you, Charlie, for re-posting this. The date, 5th July 2013, is significant to us here in the pro-life movement in Ireland. The next day, Saturday 6th July, we had the biggest pro-life march ever through Dublin, 60,000 people, nearly 2 million in US terms relatively speaking. That was to protest the iniquitous abortion law which unhappily was passed. Ok, it was passed, but do not let it be said that God doesn’t have those of us here who will defend His rights, even if we appear to be ineffective just at present. Today over 200 mounted a protest outside the local outlet of Planned “Parenthood” in Dublin. Needless to say, not a single journalist was present, as expected, but at least witness was given. May that stand to my unhappy country in the reckoning.

      • Yes JayKay. Even mentioning Rudyard Kipling is sort of a sin these days. I had the luck to have the last Victorian grandmother in the world. She introduced me to all the English classics — in translated form at first but in those days there were some glorious translators. In all European literature there are plenty of references to Holy Scripture since that was part of culture then. Even today a lot remains in the language when we say “the writing is on the wall” or “the patience of Job” and even “the eleventh hour”, etc. The hour is coming when we recover our heritage from the hands of the barbarians. Some of the savages will convert, the others will go the way of the dodo. I trust it won’t take long and old dinosaurs like me can be of some help rebuilding the culture and burying this sick world for good. — God bless!

The dry season, El Niño season, the volcanoes active all over the Pacific Rim and other parts of the world, floods in Argentina, serious political unrest in Brazil, Ecuador, and Venezuela, plus the Middle East going up in flames … if this is not apocalyptic I do not know what it is. Even during World War II there were many parts of the world where the events in Europe arrived as news from distant lands. Now it seems that every country has a share of the disaster enveloping the world. Only seven years ago a puny little politician was promising to make the sea level recede, peace prosperity and so forth. God is talking but is only a very small minority that seems to be listening.

      Hi! don’t worry about dates. Dates are so confusing as we have the Father’s mercy in all things. Faith and hope can move mountains, and they have many times. We all have to die sometime, but, I fear more that my immortal soul may not make the grade in God’s timeline for us. We have that happy hope, Christ is coming soon, and that is what we all have to look forward to. Thank God for God! (I just like to say that whenever I can.) We are about to witness some very interesting events, many of them man-made, as most are. This economic upheaval is going to be devastating but to whom. From past upheavals people have done some amazing things and the world has witnessed miraculous events but little attention is ever placed on these. It is no different than when people go to mass and witness the consecration of the bread and wine, to change it into Jesus. People, like me, take this for granted that we will be able to have this forever and ever. But, so many countries under evil regimes all over the world had to do things in secret, like mass, even if there was no priest, underground or move it from place to place so they did not get caught. And, countries, so many, that have not learned the lessons of the past, that God wins, no matter what you throw at Him or His church. He wins. When things get tough, through all the blinding grief and confusion of natural disasters, there is a period of peace afterwards that cannot be properly put into words, but, it does happen, and people do pull together for the better. When Katrina hit, I even found my uncle through a newspaper column of folks who shouted out to newspapers in Mississippi. I found a friend of his from where he lived in another state was looking for him (and she lived in another state) and his wife as was I. She told me she called another friend of theirs and he told her that my uncle and his wife had been en route helping a friend move from Colorado to Mississippi, but, they were stopped by state police and directed to go to safer ground before they could ever get near their county, so, I had peace knowing he was okay, via someone I never met before. That’s a pretty good miracle I would say. Thanks, Hopi! It is so tempting for me to leave peace and go to that empty place where there is no peace. And, I probably will teeter on getting nervous or scared, but, we are human, and it’s hard to just decide to stop being human for a while. God is so good. I just keep hearing “Let nothing disturb you.”. I know things are going to get pretty bad, but, it will get better. We all have God and each other. Thank God for God, pam, from NJ.

A few hours ago I noticed something strange on Fox News (business section) See the photo in the main article: the arrow in the sign for Wall Street appears to be pointing left and down, the numbers on the same street sign are coincidentally “9-15” (if you read it like a dat that would be September 2015) and the legend on the top of the building reads “New York Stock Ex” (the rest of the word ‘exchange’ is off the photo) Now the word “Ex” in Latin means “Out” — I wonder if someone was to compose some kind of visual omen!

    Hi, Charlie. Thank you for being God’s messenger and servant. I think He has been talking with me and lots of others in subtle ways. I didn’t see why back then, but do see more clearly now. I love art and like to decorate. I redid my main floor of my house back in 2011. As I decorated I asked for God’s guidance. I felt called to put up lots of art related to my Catholic faith. In my kitchen I put up “Our Father Who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name”. I have had a statue of Our Lady for around 17 yrs and I found a crown and put it on her head. I had a picture and quote from St Francis (part of a calendar ) and framed this. I started a collage for my living room and so far it has “Love….”. It is becoming clearer to me, God was working with me. I’m probably not as faithful and good as I could be. I am working on that. Thank you again. Our Lord is Loving and wondrous.
