March 1, 2023 – Mary, Our Lady of Emmitsburg – “There are so many who have scattered because of the confusion over current events… [I]t is a sin to oust someone if she or he says something that prophetically does not happen exactly as proclaimed”



MARCH 1, 2023

My dear little children, praised be Jesus!

I desire that not one of my children be in harm’s way with the imminent tribulation to unfold. I desire all to be safe. There are so many who have scattered because of the confusion over current events.

My children are in three categories:

  1. Those who believe they know the truth of prophecy which has made them righteous. If a prophecy does not unfold, the messenger is deemed unworthy of listening to any other message.
  2. Those who are indifferent. These are my children who are afraid to defend and stand for the Truth. This involves the sin of omission because they have come to terms that whatever they attempt to support will fall on deaf ears and so they do not do anything. They believe that God will “take care of all things”. Faith requires works.
  3. Those who have been wounded through persecution. These are my children who try to remain hidden because of the treatment they have received verbally, physically, mentally and/or through indifference, from people who chose not to honor my words.

The most dangerous category is those that fall into the category of righteousness. These are my children who believe they know who is authentic and who is not. They are certain as to when and how the events will unfold. No one knows the day or time. The season, yes. If you see storm clouds, you know when a storm is coming. Therefore yes, prepare. However, it is a sin to oust someone if she or he says something that prophetically does not happen exactly as proclaimed. This type of reaction causes division.

Those who chose to do nothing to change the evil works leading towards revolutionary and communistic ways are just like those who did nothing to help save my Son from His horrific death due to their sins. They were afraid to defend His cause and stand for the Truth. Please do not be sedentary. There will be a revolutionary war if action is not taken.

Those who have been persecuted have had their hearts thrusted with the sword and are hesitant to speak, because no one desires to listen to them. They have been defaced by the righteous authorities and others who feel they know what is true or not. So, these little children of mine keep within themselves and pray to the Face of God for His Divine Light to prevail.

This Lenten season is one for forgiveness, love and prayer. Do not hate but strive to forgive and love. It will serve all of my children well if they strive to watch their tongue against defaming and slanderous words. It is time to pray, love and prepare. It is also the time for vigilance; be vigilant against communism and the works of the one world economic forum. If given the opportunity, fight in the necessary means and ways against them taking your liberty from you. Your religious freedom is at stake. Please continue as well to pray, pray and pray.

I continue to remain with you. I bless you in His Holy Name. Honor Him. Bless Him every day. Say to Jesus “I bless You”. He will bless you as well. Delight in my Son. He will bring you happiness. Yearn for Him to become your dwelling place. Stand for peace and do not allow a revolution to unfold. He is your help, your treasure and your rock of strength. Allow Him to remain in your mind and heart.

Thank you for responding to my call.

Special Prayer Request Asked By “a soul” – MaryRefugeOfSouls

March 4, 2023

Blessings dearly beloved ones,

On Friday, February 24, 2023, Holy Love Ministries sent out an official email indicating that the visionary, Maureen Sweeney-Kyle, is sick, and thanked everyone for their prayers. (See information below).

Initially, I chose not to post this information on my blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls, because I received the information late (I did not get the official email from the Shrine, so a blog follower forwarded me the email), and I did not want to cause undue worry over Maureen’s health out of respect for her. Also, usually, in the past, Maureen has bounced back from sickness after a short gap of time. So, I have been patiently waiting for the heavenly messages to resume, as you all have been as well.

However, I realize that I made a poor choice – a mistake. These past few days, the Shrine has been sending out older messages through the official listserv, so this seems to suggest that Maureen is still struggling in her health. I do not know anything further about her situation, whether she is suffering from simply a bad cold or something more serious, but I want to be supportive to her in this time of need.

Many of you remembered me in your prayers, as you all knew that I was facing many health challenges last year. Your generous prayers helped me so much and I will be forever grateful. I experienced many miracles through your intercession and knowing that you cared about me was a great encouragement to me.

I want Maureen to have the same prayer support and constant encouragement from followers of this blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls, that helped me in my time of serious illness and recuperation. I know that she is a most beloved visionary, cared about by thousands of people around the world. I want her to be surrounded by all the love that you have for her and for her to receive many graces to recover from God.

So, please, if you could remember Maureen in your prayers, until we know that she has fully regained her health and the heavenly messages have resumed, I know that she will greatly appreciate it.

Finally, I know that some people might say, well, she is sick, but that it must not be that serious, because Papa God has promised a future public apparition at the Shrine for this Divine Mercy Sunday, etc. But, I want to say that is a poor reason for not feeling the need to pray. Yes, we do not know if Maureen will promptly recover and the heavenly messages will resume tomorrow. And yes, we do not know how serious her current health challenges are.

However, people are talking about a possibility for tomorrow, yet we are currently living with the situation as it stands today. Papa God always makes His daily decisions for the various possibilities of tomorrow based on the human actions and prayers said from today. Papa Is also the Author of Life and Death, and the Giver and Taker of any Grace. So, in order to make it to the grace of tomorrow, we need to respond accordingly to the grace of today. As we all are fragile flowers in the Hands of Papa and there is no guarantee to any of us for another day of earthly life. That is totally in the realm of Papa God, Who Alone mightily orders our daily steps.

Thank you very much for caring about Maureen and your prayers for her health.

God bless,
a soul

Our Lady is here in glistening white. She says:

“My daughter, begin to see the fulfillment of My call in those I send you. For even the smallest act of love brings closer the completeness of My call. Even a ‘Hail Mary’ said with a sick person is a brick on the path. Therefore, treasure each moment in love as an opportunity of grace towards My end in you.”

Jesus Christ

Last night I (Maureen) was awakened with my cough about 3:30 a.m. I thought my cough was bothering my husband. I saw a handsome young boy step from a light. I had been wondering how many more days I would be sick. The boy said:

“You must understand that there are many facets to each cross. The cross affects not only you, but those around you; but grace always accompanies each cross.”

“It is as though the cross could be compared to a squeaky car. The noise affects not only the owner, but all who hear it. Grace would be the grease that is given to repair the squeaks. Eventually, enough grease is given, and the squeaks disappear.”

I asked this beautiful child who He was.

He said: “I am El Divino Nino – Jesus, born Incarnate.” Then He left.

March 9, 2019
God The Father

Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says:

“My children, you are now in a penitential season* in preparation for the celebration of Easter. Therefore, let us discuss penance. The best penance is to fast from your own will. This requires the effort in your heart to please Me above all else – to love Me above all else. This is, after all, the first of My Commandments. To accomplish this, you must make the effort not to see how everything affects you yourself. Place the world and all its allurements last in the priorities of your heart. Surrender the ill effects of any illness that may befall you.”

“This is also a recipe for peace of heart. Such a resolve in your heart brings you deeper into trust in My Divine Will. So much time and energy is wasted when souls rely only on themselves and human effort. I remind you, I am more powerful than anyone or anything. It is I who manage the circumstances of your earthly existence. Your best decision, then, is to abandon yourselves to Me. Do not look to the future with dread, but with loving trust. I await your surrender of your will every morning.”

(*) Lent – a penitential season of forty days, not counting Sundays.

Read Colossians 3:5-10+

Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. In these you once walked, when you lived in them. But now put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and foul talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his practices and have put on the new man, who is being renewed in knowledge after the image of his creator.

March 2, 2023, Lent Season

Blessings dearly beloved ones,

So, people have asked me about the (unfulfilled) prophecy about the martyrdom of Pope Benedict XVI. So, I, “a soul” of MaryRefugeOfSouls, want to address the naysayers of Catholic prophecy, particularly, those who are casting stones at the chosen messengers who are faithful to God and were obedient to God by simply repeating the heavenly message given to them to announce the potential martyrdom of Pope Benedict XVI.

Firstly, I want to say that some of the things that I have come across and read by various Catholic “experts” is really shameful. I am sorry, but there are some people that are lacking true Christian charity in their words, even to the point of taking, seemingly, “delight” that Pope Benedict XVI was not martyred. In truth, I remember reading a rambling article written by a “purported” Catholic theologian where he took pride in the fact that he never completely endorsed a particularly well-loved priest who had spoken about the possible martyrdom of Pope Benedict XVI and how this faithful priest must be a “false prophet”.

Honestly, beloved ones, I could barely finish reading the article, as truthfully, I told the person who sent it to me that it makes me want to vomit about how arrogant this person sounded. And honestly, it reminded me how Our Lord, Jesus Christ, had shared in a message given to one of the chosen messengers that I promote on this blog, that He has very little time to dedicate to many theologians. This is because many of them are “modern-day Pharisees” who are the first ones ready to cast stones against others.

How very right Our Beloved Lord Is!!

So, I want to make this very important point. If you are following Catholic private revelation, because you want to solely keep track of prophetic events and figure out God’s timeline, stop, because you do not understand the purpose of private revelation. The primary purpose of heavenly messages is for our edification, our personal holiness, to help bring us closer to the Most Sacred Heart of God, and to help us make it to Heaven.

As I have stated numerous times before and will state again, I do not use fulfilled or unfulfilled prophecies as my litmus test to determine if a chosen messenger is authentic or not. Through the years, the Holy Spirit has guided me to use other means for discernment, and that is why I am comfortable in featuring the chosen messengers that I do on this blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls. I do not easily fall away from believing in a chosen messenger if a given prophecy goes unfulfilled. I recognize that one of the main reasons that prophecy is given in the first place, especially, a bad one, is so the faithful can pray, so it can be mitigated, changed, or even canceled.

Regarding the prophecy of the possible martyrdom of Pope Benedict XVI, many chosen messengers have been given public messages about this, particularly, in the past ten years or so. And I will share with you, beloved ones, thinking about this possible manner of death for our beloved holy father, affected my heart, as we all love him. So, in particular, for this past year, one of my daily intentions has been for the well-being of Pope Benedict XVI and that God might have Mercy and spare him from a potential death as a holy martyr. So, my dearest brothers and sisters, honestly, when our holy father, Pope Benedict XVI, died from natural causes, I was immediately thrilled that our dear father was spared such a harsh death, even a glorious one as a holy Christian martyr.

My dearest brothers and sisters, honestly, I do not understand a lot of people’s mentalities. A lot of people’s hearts are not right with the Lord. To gloat over how superior a person’s discernment is, because he did not fall for a “failed” prophecy over how someone could have died, really sickens me. Moreover, to have Catholic “experts” like theologians pat themselves on the back, because they are “smarter” than the rest of the faithful who really strive to understand God’s Most Sacred Heart, truly upsets me.

I am sorry, but these “experts” are fools in my eyes. Because, instead of asking God, to enlighten them as to how they should properly interpret such a situation, they are all rushing to the door to be the first ones to publicly state their superiority on the matter. Furthermore, apparent “friends” of chosen messengers who have prophesied the possible martyrdom of Pope Benedict XVI, are so quick to turn their backs on them. They are so eager to distance themselves, because they cannot handle one “failed” prophecy and the “stigma” of associating with or supporting any potential “false prophet”.

Firstly, as Sacred Scriptures states, it is incomprehensible to fully understand the Ways of God.

Secondly, the prophecy about the potential martyrdom of Pope Benedict XVI is not a false prophecy. Certainly, it is an unfulfilled prophecy, but not a false prophecy. I do not like to use the words, “false” or even “failed”, because it implies that the initial prophecy was somehow wrong. But, the original prophecy was truthful and was given by God to many different chosen messengers. In truth, this unfulfilled prophecy is actually a success in God’s Holy Eyes. Why? Because people who actually cared about the future demise of our beloved holy father prayed from the heart for his well-being. And so, due to heartfelt prayer from many people through the years, God was able to change the prophecy for the better. So, clearly, such a positive outcome from a given bad prophecy is actually a success to God.

It is when people bask in their pride and do not do anything to mitigate divine warnings that results in prophecy being a failure. This is because the people fail to respond accordingly to the given bad prophecy. Moreover, to determine whether a prophecy is truly successful, one must consider the intended purpose of why it was initially given by God. All the times that ancient Israel did not heed God’s warnings and were chastised in Sacred Scriptures are not successful prophecies. How could they be? Souls were clearly lost.

Truly, the fact that so many divine warnings were fulfilled in the Holy Bible must be complete failures in the Mind of God. Rather, look to the situation exemplified by the Prophet Jonah and the prophesied destruction of the city of Nineveh. The king and those in charge truly believed the divine warning, resulting in fasting and prayer by everyone, including the animals. And did God carry out the chastisement? No, God mitigated the prophecy and spared Nineveh at that time.

Clearly, that “failed” prophecy of Jonah was the REAL success for God in the Holy Bible.

Furthermore, dear brothers and sisters, I do not know if any of these supposed Catholic “experts”, especially, the theologians even really read the Holy Bible. I say this, because many of them speak of Divine Mercy, but it is apparent to me that they do not understand God’s Merciful Heart. This is because they want to rest all their arguments on all the biblical examples when God carried out His Divine Justice due to failed divine warnings. But, if you really want to understand the intimacies of God’s Heart, you need to study and meditate on those examples when God showed His Compassion and Loving Mercy on those who heeded the signs and warnings when He gave them. Sadly, many of these experts are so quick to judge. They are not praying to God with open hearts. I know this, because if they were sincere, God would show them the answers in His Holy Word.

Beloved ones, please understand these three important points:

(1) God Is the Ultimate Author of Life and Death;

(2) The Power of Prayer can really change things, such as events, situations, and people’s destinies; AND

(3) Private Revelation, especially, prophecies about bad outcomes, is not written in stone and always has the potential to be changed by God.

In conclusion, I ask people who are sincerely seeking understanding from Our Lord on this matter, to read and meditate on Sacred Scriptures, specifically, the Book of Prophet Isaiah, Chapter 38. Because, it is very evident that God, Who Is the Ultimate Author of Life and Death, really can change and really can delay a person’s manner of prophesied death by the strength and power of prayer.

And for all the Catholic prophecy naysayers and critics, fairweather “friends”, and especially, the “purported” theologians, who claim to read Sacred Scriptures, how could you miss such a prime example, clearly on point, of Our Lord’s Mercy?

I am not a theologian and, honestly, as I have admitted many times on this blog, I am not at all that knowledgeable in the Holy Bible. It is actually a definite weakness of mine. I have even admitted publicly that at times, praying the Most Holy Rosary, has been a challenge for me. So, it is not like I am claiming to be an expert or well-educated in any way in our holy Catholic faith. Truthfully, the only strength that I will claim is that I love to sing love-songs to my Beloved, Jesus. That, and I do know that frequent Confession and Internal Adoration of my Beloved, Jesus, in Holy Communion has totally been my saving grace all these years. It is the sole reason that I am capable of doing this blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls, and able to write commentaries.

I share this all, because even, I, a true weakling in Sacred Scriptures, was shown this biblical story from the Prophet Isaiah when I meditated on what God wanted me to share in this writing. So, I really do not understand how people more well-versed in studying Sacred Scriptures have totally missed the mark on this, and have not realized for themselves the other observations that I have made in this commentary. The only thing that I can think is that so many people desire such quick, easy solutions to seemingly, unpleasant situations, that they prefer to harden their hearts and make harsh, unfounded judgments about good people. So, rather than waiting upon the Lord for the actual answer in God’s timing — which can take often some time to be revealed — they make themselves blind and deaf to how the Holy Spirit wants to speak His Truth. And then, other people who want to appear knowledgeable, will latch on to such unfounded judgments by the “experts”, pouncing on the fact that such-and-such chosen messengers must be wrong. This, then, in turn, perpetuates the harm done to good people’s reputations, furthering the kingdom of darkness on earth, not God’s Kingdom of Light.

A final note. I have purposefully not named any actors, good or bad, in this commentary. Because I do not believe in calling people out by name, especially, when I have to talk negatively about matters. I am all about lifting people up and not tearing them down. To be honest, I never planned or even intended to do a writing on this topic. But, sometimes, people will write me and it will move me so much, that I feel compelled to write a public response. So, this is the reason why I did this writing. To shed further light and help people in their own discernment. As it really displeases me when I witness the good reputation of sincere people who deeply love and follow the Lord is distorted, hurt, ruined and even destroyed. Especially by those that people look up to for deeper knowledge and wisdom about God.

I am not a perfect person and I never will be in this earthly life. Nor do I expect other people to be perfect either. But, having this prophecy blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls, I am actually a rare person that has an online platform where I can actually speak up and defend others, the “little ones”, who, out of humility, love and obedience to God, do not have a voice to protest injustice done to them.

So, rightly or wrongly, I have chosen to cry out on a wrong that I see happening and being perpetuated by others within our Holy Church. You may have a different perception and disagree with everything that I have written here, and that is fine. But, it is something that I felt compelled to do, as I have witnessed this behavior repeated through the years that has really harmed the ministries and missions of good people of God.

Thank you very kindly for considering this commentary.

God bless,
A Soul


New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition
Book of Prophet Isaiah, Chapter 38

Hezekiah’s Illness

38 In those days Hezekiah became sick and was at the point of death. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came to him, and said to him, “Thus says the Lord: Set your house in order, for you shall die; you shall not recover.” 2 Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall, and prayed to the Lord: 3 “Remember now, O Lord, I implore you, how I have walked before you in faithfulness with a whole heart, and have done what is good in your sight.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

4 Then the word of the Lord came to Isaiah: 5 “Go and say to Hezekiah, Thus says the Lord, the God of your ancestor David: I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; I will add fifteen years to your life. 6 I will deliver you and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria, and defend this city.

7 “This is the sign to you from the Lord, that the Lord will do this thing that he has promised: 8 See, I will make the shadow cast by the declining sun on the dial of Ahaz turn back ten steps.” So the sun turned back on the dial the ten steps by which it had declined.[a]

9 A writing of King Hezekiah of Judah, after he had been sick and had recovered from his sickness:

10 I said: In the noontide of my days
I must depart;
I am consigned to the gates of Sheol
for the rest of my years.
11 I said, I shall not see the Lord
in the land of the living;
I shall look upon mortals no more
among the inhabitants of the world.
12 My dwelling is plucked up and removed from me
like a shepherd’s tent;
like a weaver I have rolled up my life;
he cuts me off from the loom;
from day to night you bring me to an end;[b]
13 I cry for help[c] until morning;
like a lion he breaks all my bones;
from day to night you bring me to an end.[d]

14 Like a swallow or a crane[e] I clamor,
I moan like a dove.
My eyes are weary with looking upward.
O Lord, I am oppressed; be my security!
15 But what can I say? For he has spoken to me,
and he himself has done it.
All my sleep has fled[f]
because of the bitterness of my soul.

16 O Lord, by these things people live,
and in all these is the life of my spirit.[g]
Oh, restore me to health and make me live!
17 Surely it was for my welfare
that I had great bitterness;
but you have held back[h] my life
from the pit of destruction,
for you have cast all my sins
behind your back.
18 For Sheol cannot thank you,
death cannot praise you;
those who go down to the Pit cannot hope
for your faithfulness.
19 The living, the living, they thank you,
as I do this day;
fathers make known to children
your faithfulness.

20 The Lord will save me,
and we will sing to stringed instruments[i]
all the days of our lives,
at the house of the Lord.

21 Now Isaiah had said, “Let them take a lump of figs, and apply it to the boil, so that he may recover.” 22 Hezekiah also had said, “What is the sign that I shall go up to the house of the Lord?”
