“I am Your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“Today, I have come to help you see that you should not allow Satan to distract you as to what chamber you are in within My Heart. If you are climbing a ladder, you do not stop to take account of what rung you are on. You just keep climbing up and up until you reach the top.”

“So it is in the spiritual life. You mount to perfection – to Divine Love – by simply plucking one fault or attachment after another from your heart, like weeds from a beautiful flower garden. In place of the weed, a flower springs up. In place of the fault, a virtue blossoms. Do not look back, or be discouraged by the climb ahead. Just keep going on the ladder of Love.”

“Make it known.”

Jesus and Blessed Mother are here with Their Hearts exposed. Blessed Mother says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

Jesus:

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“My brothers and sisters, do not covet the allurements of the world, which are passing and temporary. Rather, covet the next step on the ladder of Love. Each step is your self- surrender. As you surrender your will to the Divine Will, I am kissing and caressing your soul with My Divine Love.”

“Tonight We are blessing you with the Blessing of Our United Hearts.”

Jesus and Blessed Mother are here with Their Hearts exposed. Blessed Mother says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

Jesus:

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“My brothers and sisters, tonight I invite you to come into Our United Hearts through the simplicity of the Nativity scene. Consider My simplicity in My birth amongst the animals in the manger. Consider My humility, and be drawn up the ladder – the stairway – of holiness. It is in this way you will come deeper into My Heart of Hearts, and into union with the Eternal Father.”

“Tonight We’re blessing you with the Blessing of Our United Hearts.”

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“I have come to demonstrate to you the importance of overcoming the temptations in your life. Each soul is tested according to his strength on the journey into the Chambers of Our Hearts. The test, or temptation, can become a strength or a weakness according to the soul’s response, but he is never tested beyond his ability to say ‘yes’ to Holy Love.”

“If you envision all temptations as a ladder climbing into My Heart, then you will better understand what I am telling you. When the soul gives in to temptation, the step beneath his feet breaks, and he slips backwards. But when the soul overcomes a temptation by his efforts and Heaven’s grace, he mounts the step under his feet and moves closer to My Heart.”

“Each soul needs to pray for the enlightenment in every present moment so that he becomes aware of the ways he is being tempted. Make it known.”

St. Thomas Aquinas comes. He is standing next to a ladder. He says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come today to give you this illustration of a soul’s journey into the Fourth Chamber of Divine Love. The ladder represents the Third Chamber of the United Hearts which is the perfection of virtue. Each step is a virtue. The side railings that the soul must cling to in order to climb up this ladder represent humility and love. Every virtue is fastened to Holy Humility–Holy Love. If it is not, it becomes unsteady and weakened. The virtue itself becomes false. The soul who is trying to climb, easily slips backwards.”

“I give you this graphic to show you how important humility and love are in the spiritual life. God, you know, is never fooled by exterior pretense. He sees clearly into every heart. Indeed, humility is knowing that you are nothing more than you are in the Eyes of God. True Holy Love is loving God’s Divine Will in the present moment. Neither of these virtues can be acquired through the intellect, but only in the heart; that is, you are not loving and humble by thinking that you are. These virtues come through the soul’s cooperation with the action of the Divine Will in their lives. Both of these virtues require a lessening of self-love. The more the soul loses sight of self, the more God fills the void.”

“These two virtues work together in the heart to lead the soul into the Fourth Chamber. One cannot work apart from the other. Without them the other virtues do not enter the heart.”

“I reveal this to make the climb easier. Pray to be open always to God’s Will for you.”

July 24, 2002

St. Thomas Aquinas comes. He says:

“I have come to continue my lesson on Holy Love–Holy Humility. Consider once again the ladder whose steps are the virtues and whose side rails are love and humility. When the step breaks away from the side rail, it is no longer strong. It may resemble a step, but in fact, lacks the strength of a genuine step. So it is with any virtue. The virtue is only as deep as love and humility are deep in the soul. Virtue that is not grounded in love and humility soon gives in, as it is false.”

“Every virtue must be supported by Holy Love and Holy Humility. If it is not, the soul will not advance on the ladder of holiness, but slip and fall. Think of the virtue of patience. The soul that is not supported by love and humility easily becomes impatient. He begins to think of ‘poor me’ and how all things affect him, rather than on God’s Divine Will in the present moment. The same is true of a failing in perseverance, meekness, and more.”

“It is always an inordinate self-love that pulls the soul away from love and humility. Self-love, therefore, is the antithesis of the entire spiritual quest for holiness and advancement through the Chambers of the United Hearts.”

St. Thomas Aquinas comes. He says:

“I have come in praise of Jesus, born Incarnate.”

“In order for the soul to make a steady ascent up the ladder of virtue, he must have his hands firmly planted on both hand rails–Holy Love and Holy Humility. As he ascends, he reaches up higher on each side to pull himself to the next step. This action represents the soul’s deeper commitment to love and humility.”

“I will describe for you the loving, humble soul as a goal to aim for. Such a soul always places God first, ahead of self and neighbor. To do so, his thoughts, words and actions are towards pleasing the foremost object of his love. Through love of God, the soul loves his neighbor–seeing God’s creation in his neighbor. For love’s sake, he tries to overcome disordered self-love. This action embraces humility.”

“The humble soul regards all others as holier than himself. He knows his place before God and tries to please God. He does not look for faults in others, but looks for good. He is submissive to God’s Will in all things and in every way. He uses the goods of the world to give glory to God. In so doing, he does not consider cost to self. This means he does not look at how everything affects him. His thoughts, words and actions are turned towards God, not towards himself and the world. In essence he loses sight of himself. He is not concerned for his reputation in the world, but only for his relationship with God.”

“These hand rails of Holy Love and Holy Humility are not always easy to maintain a hold of. Satan tries to grease them with his temptations so that the soul loses his grip. It is only with the assistance of grace from the Heart of Our Heavenly Mother the soul can even begin the climb. If the hand should slip from one side or the other, Our Lady is there, placing the hand–finger by finger–back where it belongs.”

Jesus and Blessed Mother are here with Their Hearts exposed. Blessed Mother says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

Jesus says:

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

They smile and nod at the priests and other people in the apparition room.

Jesus: “My brothers and sisters, it is through the grace of My Mother’s Heart that you have been invited here this evening. My Mother desires that each of you carry Holy and Divine Love back to your places of origin. Understand that you cannot advance to the deepest Chambers of My Sacred Heart unless love and humility work together. They must be like a ladder that pulls you up higher and deeper into My Heart. One cannot work well without the other. If you need extra help to advance through the Chambers of My Heart, ask My Mother for She desires so much the best for you.”

“Tell each one here I’m praying for their petitions. I have laid them on My Heart and I will take them to the Heart of My Eternal Father.”

They then bless us with the Blessing of the United Hearts.

I (Maureen) see a large Flame form around the tabernacle and then advance towards me. I understand that It is the Heart of God the Father. He says:

“Let us give praise now to Jesus, My Son, ever present in the tabernacles of the world.”

“Realize, My child, that it is by My Hand and through My Divine Will, every grain of sand is formed, every drop of water is put in the ocean, every ray of sunlight brightens your day. I control the movement of the waves upon the shore. It is I Who regulate the formation of every cloud and their place in the sky. If I can do all of this, understand that there is no present moment in its passing that I have not created and given to you. As I give you each moment, I design the circumstances, the crosses and the graces that come with it. Knowing all of this now, see how foolish it is of mankind not to trust in Me.”

“Further, I tell you, while there is much talk about living in My Divine Will, most do not understand how to accomplish this goal. This is why the Revelation of the United Hearts has been given to the world. The Chambers of the United Hearts are a step by step journey into My Divine Will and the Flame of My Heart. You cannot jump from the ground to the top of the ladder without climbing the ladder. You cannot jump into My Divine Will by saying you are there without surrendering to the spiritual journey first. Today there is too much talk about the goal and not enough talk about how to attain it.”

“The spiritual journey through the United Hearts must become familiar to all.”

July 10, 2011 – A. M.

St. Rita of Cascia says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“Today I come to point out to you the necessity of perseverance in everyday – moment to moment – holiness. The soul who seeks to walk the spiritual journey of Holy Love must pray for the grace – the virtue – of perseverance in the virtuous life. Without this Heavenly support, the soul will become distracted, even discouraged, along the way.”

“Perseverance is like the dyke which holds back the flood of Satan’s attack upon Holy Love in the heart; or it can be likened to a ladder that encourages and assists the soul in climbing the heights of sanctity. Never take perseverance for granted. Petition the Sacred Heart daily for this special virtue which safeguards all the others, and helps the souls to live in the truth.”

“Pray this way:”

“Most Holy Sacred Heart of Jesus, help my heart to persevere in all that is holy. Make me strong in perseverance where I am weak. Never let me become discouraged in pursuing personal holiness. Amen.”

July 10, 2011 — P. M.

St. Rita of Cascia says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“When you make a soup, the broth becomes part of the vegetables and meat and vice versa. These flavor each other. So it is with perseverance. The virtues are flavored with perseverance, and perseverance becomes part of the virtues. Perseverance holds the virtues together just as the broth embraces the parts of the soup.”

“Or let me put it this way. The mortar that holds the bricks in place, in the house of holiness within the soul, would be perseverance.”

“Perseverance in truth must be in the center of every heart for the soul to progress through the Chambers of the United Hearts.”

Blessed Mother says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“No one can claim to live in the Divine Will, but yet discount Holy Love. The only way into the Divine Will is through Holy Love. Holy Love is the Divine Will. You cannot climb a ladder or begin a journey without taking the first step. In the same way, you cannot reach the summit of personal holiness without surrendering to Holy Love.”

“Some pride themselves on their holiness which transgresses humility – the basic virtue coupled with Holy Love in every effort towards holiness. Do not love the fruits of the Holy Spirit as though you deserve them. Just be a ready instrument – always deflecting self-interest or self-aggrandizement. This is God’s Will.”

St. Peter says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“It is important to understand at the beginning of this endeavor, my discourse on apostleship, the difference between a disciple and an apostle. A disciple is on the first step of the ladder to apostleship. The disciple has heard of the Messages on Holy Love and of the apparitions. His interest is peaked and he becomes – so to speak – a pupil of Holy Love. Some become false disciples, exploring the Messages merely to find what they judge as error so they can excuse themselves from belief.”

“The apostle, on the other hand, believes in and lives the Messages. Furthermore, he accepts responsibility for evangelizing the Messages and leading others in the way of Holy Love and Truth. This is the call I responded to in my day.”

“These days, the true apostles must oppose false discernment and duplicity of some ‘disciples’ and many onlookers. They must be prepared to do battle in any given moment – always with the sword of Truth. They must preach Holy Love, not only by words, but by actions, as well.”

“Everyone who is a disciple should be open to apostleship.”

July 14, 2015

St. John Vianney, the Cure d’ Ars and Patron of all priests says:

“Praise be to Jesus.”

“You ask how a soul can become more holy. The more God is the center of their life, the more holy the soul will be. It is then God is a part of every decision, every victory, every disappointment and every defeat. Such a soul interacts with grace and is never far from God’s Provision.”

“This is so important for priests who, too often, feel alone and make poor decisions based on free will and not the Divine Will.”

“It is as though the journey in personal holiness were a ladder. The only way up the ladder which reaches to the Divine Will is to reach for the next rung. In the spiritual realm, you reach the next rung through your efforts in prayer and sacrifice and self-abandonment. These efforts make God the center of your existence.”

“Allow God to take dominion over your heart in this way.”
