Receive Holy Communion . . . for What is Coming

 

The Sacred Heart says:

 

When a soul has just received Me, it is no longer the soul which lives, it is My Divine Soul which comes into this soul. For Holy Communion, I take away the Christian's heart and I give him Mine instead. How good I feel in these souls and in these hearts! Every day, I would like to be able to live in this palace formed by my Love.

 

These are the Holy Communions of today which, in a time which is coming soon, when there will no longer be Holy Bread, no longer the Adorable Body to sustain the failing forces. It is the very Holy Communions of today which will give to my beloved souls the force and the courage to confront, in charity, the peril and the danger; but these souls will not lose. This sacred manna will lift them above the peril, and will hold them suspended above the danger.

 

These beloved souls will accomplish acts of devotion, even for those who have been their thorns. These thorns will have been My thorns, those which will pierce My Heart and those which already pierce It. There are, faithful and blessed souls, there are only your approaches, by Holy Communion, which can heal the stings, and relieve the pains.

 

(22 June 1882)

Reflection on this Prophecy:

 

When we receive Holy Communion; that is, the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, we know that this is special.

 

Christ is coming to us, and, if we are given the grace, we sense Him in us, and our hearts and souls are filled with the quiet joy of His Presence.

 

But the title of this prophecy, as given in this book compiled by Father Roberdel, really does make us start up and take notice: “Receive Holy Communion . . . for What is Coming”.

 

“For what is Coming?!” we exclaim in shock. “We are already there!”

 

With the Catholic Church suffering in her time of Silence in Exile, we are living through the persecution, and we are not able to go to Holy Communion daily or even regularly.

 

Many of us hope for the Holy Sacraments once a year, perhaps twice. And each time we wonder if this is the last Holy Communion, the last time for the Holy Sacraments in our lifetimes.

 

So logically, but in dread, we ask, “Is there still more to come, a worse time of more sufferings than what we know today?”

 

And yes, this prophecy answers yes.

 

For there will be a time “when there will no longer be Holy Bread, no longer the Adorable Body to sustain the failing forces.”

 

The “failing forces”, a militaristic image, surely means the soldiers of the Catholic Church, who are her Priests.

 

They can be failing due to their joining with the general apostasy. Once Pope Gregory XVII is pushed aside and forced to dwell in the Silence of Exile for 31 years, the Priests around the world are no longer in communion with the True Pope, and they lose the life-sustaining Graces which come from the Holy Father, as the Vicar of Christ, down to the Princes (who are the Bishops) and then to the Priests.

 

Of course, it goes without saying that what the Priests no longer have to give, the people are no longer able to receive.

 

And if there is to come a time, when, indeed, the Faithful no longer have access to a Priest who is in communion with the Holy Father, Pope Gregory XVIII, or one of His Successors, then how are we to carry on?

 

And here, the Sacred Heart of Jesus reveals a Mystery to Marie-Julie: He tells her “It is the very Holy Communions of today which will give to my beloved souls the force and the courage to confront, in charity, the peril and the danger”.

 

God the Son, being outside of time, gives to us an ever-open channel to receiving Graces from the reception of Holy Communion through Marie-Julie and other holy Catholics of her time. Their Holy Communions for us will indeed give us “courage to confront, in charity, the peril and the danger”.

 

Surely it would please the Sacred Heart of Jesus that we unite ourselves with these “very Holy Communions”.

 

In the battles that we face, whether today or whenever they come, we are assured by the Sacred Heart that we will find the Salvation that we seek, since He says of us: “these souls will not lose.”

 

The snares which the devil and his demons set with which to trap us will not harm our souls, since “[t]his sacred manna will lift them above the peril, and will hold them suspended above the danger.”

 

So our connection to the “very Holy Communions” of Marie-Julie's time (1882) seems to be imperative. The Sacred Heart is revealing that Graces from these Holy Communions will sustain us in our times so that we can successfully do battle now and in whatever we face in the future.

 

And our prayers on behalf of sinners pleases the Sacred Heart of Jesus very much, for He says of us: “These beloved souls will accomplish acts of devotion, even for those who have been their thorns.”

 

Souls who are in sin and who persecute Pope Gregory XVIII and the Church in Exile, hurt not only us, the Faithful, but also hurt Christ our Lord, for He says of them: “These thorns will have been My thorns, those which will pierce My Heart”.

 

But we can relieve the Sufferings of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ our Lord, by offering up the Holy Communions that we do partake in, now, in union with the "very Holy Communions" of Marie-Julie and other holy Catholics of her time, for our spiritual needs (and the spiritual needs of others) during the time of no Holy Communions.

 

As well, we can make Spiritual Communions while we wait for the next opportunity to receive Holy Communion, and join our Spiritual Communions to Marie-Julie's and the other "very Holy Communions", so that the pains of the Sacred Heart may be alleviated:

 

There are, faithful and blessed souls, there are only your approaches, by Holy Communion, which can heal the stings, and relieve the pains.”

 

Let us alleviate our dearest Lord, in His Sufferings for us, and let us rejoice in this Divine Love which provides for our every need, both now and in the times to come.

 

And let us remember to pray the chaplet which honours the Sacred Wounds of Christ our Lord, begs for the conversion of poor sinners, and relieves the sufferings of the Holy Souls in Purgatory: www.chapletoftheholywounds.com

 

Deo gratias!

“Little Sister, I come because I love the servants of the Cross.”

 

-- “Speak, Father Saint Francis, our hearts are open.”

 

“Little sister, spines are from flowers, and the flowers often carry a curse. It would be better to gather some flowers in winter than in summer.

“It would be better to seed the field when it is humid than when it is made of dust.

“Understand then that the field is humid when Grace waters it. The field made of dust is sterile and the harvest languishes there.”

 

-- “Ah! I understand.”

 

“It would be better to drink at a small running current of water than at the river. At the small running current, we sweetly drink the Graces of Heaven, a little at a time. Then, little by little, the small running current becomes a large stream where we drink with delight.”

 

-- “Father Saint Francis, when the soul is troubled, what can one do?”

 

“Remember the good counsels received, meditate on them, to strengthen the heart.”

 

-- “But when we cannot even pray, nor do anything?”

 

“You must say to God: I hand over my soul into Thy hands.”

 

-- “Will God be very content with that?”

 

“Little sister, it is the best prayer.”

 

-- “When we can neither pray, nor make our Sunday prayers?”

 

“One performs penance... Content yourself with that which you have. Do not ask to be happy.”

“The good Jesus will not leave you to be lost. Tonight I have come to bring calm into your heart.”

 

(9 January 1878)

 

[Source: pp. 186 – 187, Le Ciel en Colloque avec Marie-Julie Jahenny, by Fr. Pierre Roberdel].

 

Reflection on this prophecy:

 

Marie-Julie's soul is restless. She has been struggling to pray, even finding it impossible to pray the Propers on Sunday.

 

Saint Francis of Assisi, the Seraphic Father, comes to give the counsels, drawing his examples from the simple natural world of streams and fields, the world that Marie-Julie knows very well.

 

In praying, the Seraphic Father says that we all must begin slowly, “at the small running current”; that is, using short daily prayer sessions to draw sweetness from prayer: “At the small running current, we sweetly drink the Graces of Heaven, a little at a time.”

 

His next counsel is for us to cooperate with Grace, and not try to reach beyond the Graces that our souls are receiving for the moment.

 

This reminds us of the first verse of Psalm 126:

 

“Unless the Lord build a house,

They labour in vain that build it.”

 

Saint Francis of Assisi tells Marie-Julie that when we have trouble praying, we should “[r]emember the good counsels received, meditate on them, to strengthen the heart.”

 

In this way the Seraphic Father connects the idea of prayer and a strong heart; that is, that the regular practice of prayer helps to build an iron will.

 

But Marie-Julie's suffering has been intense, and so she confides:

 

But when we cannot even pray, nor do anything?”

 

And here most of us will understand Marie-Julie's panic, because we have felt this way, feeling that restlessness in the soul which makes even thoughts fragmented and concentration for prayer impossible.

 

Saint Francis of Assisi has the perfect solution to when we cannot pray. He tells her: “You must say to God: I hand over my soul into Thy hands.”

 

He tells Marie-Julie that this is THE BEST PRAYER.

 

Why? Because God made us, He made our souls, and He knows best how to take care of our souls. Who best to keep our souls safe while in this condition than He who created us?

 

And we recall the second verse in Psalm 126:

 

Unless the Lord keep the city,

he watcheth in vain that keepeth it.

 

Marie-Julie guiltily admits that she has even been unable to do her Sunday duty; that is, pray the Propers for the Sunday Masses.

 

In response, Saint Francis of Assisi, this Saint of austerity, whose life was built upon countless penances, draws his next piece of advice from his own experience. She is to make a simple act of penance, and yet one which requires total negation of self love:

 

One performs penance... Content yourself with that which you have. Do not ask to be happy.

 

But one has to have the mettle of the Saints to not run away in fear, screaming, “Aahhhh!” at the prospect of not asking God to help us to be happy, for we are so miserable when we are not happy!

 

However, Marie-Julie has been a victim soul for nine years now. Recall that she has embraced a life of suffering for three main intentions: the Holy Father, the French Monarch, and in reparation for the loss of hope in God by persons living in the days of the persecution of the Papacy and the Church (these times).

 

But even despite her determination to suffer, we hear the great pain in her words when she admits, “I do not ask for any more than to save my soul.”

 

Think of it: Marie-Julie is afraid of being damned due to her inability to pray. She knows that God has made her to love and serve Him, but she fears that she can do neither if she is unable to at least pray simple prayers.

 

The Seraphic Father, Saint Francis, acts as a balm to her mental anguish. At the beginning of his apparition he tells Marie-Julie that he has come because he loves “the servants of the Cross.”

 

And now, in his parting words, he first reassures Marie-Julie that Christ is good. He calls Christ “[t]he good Jesus”.

 

Next, he brings the comforting remembrance that Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd who looks after each of His sheep: “The good Jesus will not leave you to be lost.”

 

And with this Divine Promise of the Bridegroom of our souls, Saint Francis of Assisi also adds his own fatherly comfort which gives Marie-Julie the assurance that the Franciscan Family in Heaven knows of her suffering, that she is never forgotten: “Tonight I have come to bring calm into your heart.”

 

And like when we are comforted by our own earthly father, who holds our hand when we are gravely ill, quietly praying his Rosary with his other hand, Marie-Julie is truly comforted. Her struggles and her pains are understood by her loving spiritual father.

 

Marie-Julie Jahenny lived her life by the Rule of Saint Francis of Assisi, as a Third Order Franciscan, and thus, she was a spiritual daughter of the Seraphic Father. When she died on March 4, 1941, she was buried in the Franciscan habit, as has always been the custom and privilege of Third Order Franciscans.

 

After the worldwide punishment of the 3 Days of Darkness, Catholics will convert to the Truth (being of right mind without the satanic controls) and the holy spiritual Orders will re-establish their disciplines. Deo gratias!

Marie-Julie is seen here kissing her crucifix.

 

... the Angels arise and salute me:

 

“What do you search for here?”

-- “My Divine Spouse and the secret of how to love Him.”

-- “Take this Cross, accept it.”

 

I take it and I feel a blow in my soul, as if to destroy it. I ask the Angels what that means.

 

“By accepting the Cross, you accept all sorts of humiliations in your body and in your soul. Daughter of the Cross, you have given your heart to Jesus, who has signed your eternal donation with his Blood. Do you want to suffer, in your soul, all sorts of strange pains?

 

“I do want it, as long as it is Jesus Christ who sends you.”

 

The Angel puts one hand on my head and raises the other towards Heaven:

 

“Spouse of the Angels, here is the daughter of the Cross. She accepts to suffer up to the day of her death.”

 

Heaven opens... I see descending, on a cloud, Our Lord and nine Angels. I see some unachieved crowns and some piles of palm. The Saviour descends under the form of Ecce Homo.

 

“Is it thee, my Jesus?”

 

-- “My victim, look at how much I suffer!”

 

(Dialogue in the course of which Our Lord wants to make Marie-Julie approach close to Him, who has defended herself with a great humility).

 

-- “Marie-Julie of the Cross, do you love Me?”

 

-- “I don't know how to love Thee. But I am going to take from the flowers and the bits of the herbs their love, and I will say: my Jesus, may the little flowers love Thee for me!”

 

-- “Marie-Julie of the Cross, stand up. Promise me, by your faith, your confidence and your Baptism, promise to believe in Me for perpetuity and to never say: My Lord, Thou hast abandoned me, Thou hast created me to become a sterile tree and separated from Holy Church.”

 

-- “My Lord, I promise Thee to always believe that I am a Christian and a child of the Church, that my soul has been created to resemble Thee.”

 

-- “What you promise has closed my cruel wounds. From the breath of your heart you have come to dry them all. Today, you compensate me more than all your life.

 

... Victim, I have given Myself to your heart, spiritually, each time that you have desired Me.”

 

-- “My Jesus, my heart is cold, it does not desire anything.”

 

-- “Saint Thomas and Saint Francis have formulated your desires for you.”

 

-- “I thank Thee, my Jesus.”

 

-- “You give Me great pleasure when you desire Me in this way, and that you shed hidden tears. I take much pleasure from your groans and from your desires for Me to save you, more than from seeing five persons fasting on dry bread and water. The least thing that you do with a simple heart, with the aim to accomplish My Will and to accept all of the trials, this pleases Me more than all of the absent-minded prayers said to Me.”

 

The Lord adds:

 

-- “Listen to my little sermon...

 

“O you, persecutor, I say to you:

 

“A beautiful and fresh flower will arise from under the mask of your words. The flower will not be suffering and all will fall back on you... You who do not know how to make the rose to flower, you have wanted to overthrow her with mountains. Lift yourself up from under this weight of contempt and come offer Me your heart. You who have veiled eyes, you do not dare to see the power of my prodigies. This beautiful flower will come before your eyes; you will see everywhere the rays of her soul. If you do not light the way for yourself, adversity shall come to you, because you will not see the Sanctuary.

 

“And you, my victim, go to the Cross; pray for those who outrage Me and for those who never stop from outraging Me.”

 

(Madame Gregoire, 5 March 1878)

 

[Source: pp. 60-62, Le Ciel en Colloque avec Marie-Julie Jahenny, by Fr. Pierre Roberdel, in translation].

 

Reflection on this prophecy:

 

Madame Gregoire was a faithful secretary to Marie-Julie, a faithful friend, and defender. This prophecy takes place when Marie-Julie is still young, some twenty-eight years old. Christ is teaching Marie-Julie what pleases him in her suffering; that is, the simplicity of her intention, of her love for the salvation of souls.

 

The beginning of her vision is beautiful, and teaches us of how Angels are intermediaries for us with Christ our Lord. Marie-Julie first comes upon Angels who have been in adoration, for they arise and ask her what she wants: “What do you search for here?”

 

Marie-Julie replies with a singular courage that can only come from love: “My Divine Spouse and the secret of how to love Him.”

 

The Angels immediately give her the essential method for learning how to love Christ, saying, “Take this Cross, accept it.”

 

This is a real lesson for us, a lesson that we must accept. We must suffer yes, always in this valley of tears. But we are to ACCEPT our sufferings. We must AGREE to suffer if we are to love Christ.

 

When the Angel affirms to Christ Marie-Julie's desire to suffer all of her life, Christ descends with nine Angels, which itself is significant.  

 

Why nine Angels? It may be that each of the Angels come from one of the nine choirs of Angels.

 

Another possibility is that each Angel represents one of her nine years as a victim soul, since the age of 19. Recall that, born in 1850, Marie-Julie is now 28 (the date for this prophecy is 1878), which means that nine years have passed by.

 

Most interestingly, Marie-Julie sees “unachieved crowns and piles of palm [leaves]” which have yet to be claimed by future saints who have fought the good fight and triumphed. (They are there for our taking, if we have the courage to accept sufferings!)

 

Marie-Julie sees our Suffering Lord, with His Crown of Thorns, the Ecce Homo, and He asks her if she loves Him.

 

Marie-Julie's reply is honest. She says she wants to; that is, she wants to do good for souls, to intercede for them. This is why she offers flowers and bits of herbs to Christ, because these have beneficial juices that can help to heal our infirmities. Marie-Julie just wants to do good, like the flowers and herbs.

 

But Christ has harsh sufferings for her, and he needs her to be aware, and thus to promise Him: “...promise to believe in Me for perpetuity and to never say: My Lord, Thou hast abandoned me, Thou hast created me to become a sterile tree and separated from Holy Church.”

 

On the one hand, this does not surprise us because we know that she will be disbelieved, and mocked at by many, and denied the Holy Sacraments for eleven years of rigorous investigation by representatives of Holy Mother Church.

 

But on the other hand we are surprised, because to a large extent this is our suffering today. Each of us who has been given the Faith to understand the fact that the Papacy is exiled since the masonic takeover of October 26, 1958, we now see how we are spiritually united to Marie-Julie.

 

Do we not feel rejected and “abandoned” by family, friends, and colleagues for our beliefs? In being alone, and particularly in praying alone, are we not that “sterile tree”? In not being able to attend the church building in our neighbourhood, because it follows the anti-pope in overtaken Rome, do we not feel “separated from Holy Church”, blessed to receive the Holy Sacraments at all?

 

Indeed, each time we go to the Holy Sacraments we never know if it will be the last time during our lives here on earth. This is a suffering also. This is a burden that we must accept because of the times we live in.

 

Christ tells Marie-Julie that her desire for Him and her “hidden tears” please Him very much, much more than severe bodily penances.

 

We must remember to cry (suffer) without speaking of it, if we are to please Him. Our self love demands to be comforted, but we must have strong wills and push past such very human weakness.

 

We must remember what truly pleases the Suffering Christ, the Ecce Homo: “The least thing that you do with a simple heart, with the aim to accomplish My Will and to accept all of the trials, this pleases Me more than all of the absent-minded prayers said to Me.”

 

The Ecce Homo even addresses Himself to the persecutors, encouraging them to come out from under the weight of their “contempt” for the Catholic Church.

 

She is a “beautiful and fresh flower [that] will arise from under the mask of [their] words.” A mask points to the lies, the deceptions that have been perpetrated against the Pope and the Catholic Church. A mask also tells us that the true perpetrators of the lies have been hiding behind masks that make them seem Catholic.

 

But the Papacy and the Church are Divinely Protected. The Church is the spotless Bride of Christ. The enemies can never change that, for it is who She is.

 

Happy are we who can count ourselves Her children, by Faith and Baptism!

 

But we have a job to do, a hard job. We must accept our sufferings, just as Marie-Julie has.

 

We must take Christ's last words to Marie-Julie as words to live by:

 

“[G]o to the Cross; pray for those who outrage Me and for those who never stop from outraging Me.”

 

May the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary teach us how to suffer for the salvation of souls.

This famous Bernini sculpture of St. Teresa of Avila being stabbed through the heart by an angel's burning arrow is on exhibition in Pope Gregory XVII's titular church as cardinal, Santa Maria della Vittoria (Our Lady of Victory), in Rome.  Pope Pius XII gave him this church because it was Cardinal Archbishop Siri's favourite devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. On May 2, 2018 will be the anniversary of his death in 1989.

 

This week's prophecy (below) speaks about obedience.  Likewise, St. Teresa of Avila teaches the following about holy obedience:  "The Lord taught me once that it wasn't obedience if I wasn't resolved to suffer, that I should fix my eyes on what He suffered, and that all would be easy" (taken from The Book of Her Life, Chapter 26).

 

To well understand your faith, says the Holy Ghost, you have need of adversities, of contempt, of insults, of heartbreak. It is necessary that all of these become for you pleasures. Here is the true faith, entire and perfect.

 

Some put holiness in visits and pilgrimages; others put it in disciplines and mortifications. All of these can take one to holiness, but with difficulty, because pride always mixes with the aim of discipline, and with long penances, too little hidden.

 

True holiness consists in submission, in the abnegation of oneself, in a will united entirely with the will of God, and in the obedience which is the surest of all the virtues. It is better to take a grain of sand by obedience than to discipline one’s body for ten days. This obedience is of such a worth that one cannot appreciate how much it satisfies God.

 

Prayer is the first purgation of the soul, but you must not do it to be intoxicated with consolations. God, sometimes, thinks the opposite. It can happen that the consolation prayer is very harmful to the soul, for it must be that the will thinks to obey God blindly. Prayer provides an unalterable peace . . .

(13 August 1878)

 

[Source: pp. 182-3, Le Ciel en Colloque avec Marie-Julie Jahenny, compiled by Fr. Pierre Roberdel, in translation].

 

Reflection on this prophecy:

 

This week's reflection on obedience is taken from Sr. Mary of Agreda's City of God, Volume II, number 311, pp. 249-250:

 

311.  My daughter, the happy souls which God has chosen for his intimate friendship and perfection must keep themselves in continual readiness and peace, in order to perform all that his Majesty may ordain without hesitation or delay. That is what I did when the Most High commanded me to leave the beloved retreat of my house and betake myself to Elisabeth; likewise, when he ordered me to return. I obeyed in all these things with joyful alacrity; and although I had received so many benefits from Elisabeth and her family and so many tokens of love and friendship, as thou hast seen, yet, knowing the will of the Lord, I set aside all obligation and my own inclination and followed them only so far as was strictly demanded by charity and compassion, and in so far as the promptest obedience to the divine command permitted.

 

312.  My dearest daughter, how wilt thou not hasten to obtain this true and perfect resignation as soon as thou knowest its vast value! How pleasing it is in the eyes of the Lord, and how profitable for thy soul! Labor then to attain it in imitation of me, as I have so already so often invited thee and urged thee. The greatest hindrances toward its attainment are the leanings and special likings to earthly things; for these make the soul unworthy of the caresses of the Lord and of knowing fully his will. And even if the soul knows his will, the base love of unworthy things will keep the soul from fulfilling it; for on account of its inclinations, it will be wanting in the ready and joyful obedience required by the Lord. Take notice of this danger, my daughter, and do not allow any particular affection to enter into thy heart, for I wish that thou be well versed and perfect in this art of divine love, and that thy obedience be that of an angel, and thy love that of a seraphim. Thus show thyself in all thy actions, for to this my love urges thee, and thus art thou taught by the knowledge and light imparted to thee.

 

313.  I do not say that thou must do away with all sensible feeling, for that is not naturally possible to the creature; but whenever thou meetest adverse happenings, or when thou art deprived of what is useful, necessary or agreeable thou must bear it with joyful resignation and give praise to the Lord, because his will is being fulfilled in thy regard. By seeking only his pleasure, and considering all else as of passing moment, thou wilt gain a quick and easy victory over thyself, and thou wilt seek all occasions to humiliate thyself under the mighty hand of the Lord (1 Pet. 5, 6). I also exhort thee to imitate me in my esteem and veneration of the priests, and that thou always ask their blessing before speaking to them and in leaving them. Do this in regard to the Most High before beginning any work. Toward thy superiors always show thyself devoted and submissive. If any married women come to seek thy advice, exhort them to be obedient to their husbands (Tit. 5, 2), peacefully subjecting themselves, living retired in their houses and carefully fulfilling their obligations toward their families. Tell them not to give themselves up entirely to their occupations, nor to lose themselves in their daily cares on pretext of necessity; for much more must be trusted to the goodness and liberality of God than to one's own immoderate bustle and activity. In whatever happened to me in my condition, thou wilt find true instruction and example; and my whole life will be an example of perfection for the guidance of souls, and therefore I will not need to give thee further direction.

"There is no problem, I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary.  With the Holy Rosary, we will save ourselves.  We will sanctify ourselves.  We will console Our Lord and obtain the salvation of many souls." --Sister Lucy (of Fatima) December 26, 1957 A.D.

 

The Lord says:

“I have left you my Mother:  it is she who, every day, brings me your intentions, your tears, your joys. In Heaven, she is always standing:  she watches and looks over her children on earth.  When she sees your tears, she cries; when she sees your joys, she smiles.

Ask Him to take you to the garden of His virtues. This will be under the dew of your Ave Maria’s. When you pray three per day, the first in honour of her purity, the second in honour of her humility, the third in honour of her charity; even if you have done only that during your life, I will recognize you as the blessed children of my Mother and I will receive you in Heaven.

Marie resumes:

“My dear victim-priest, (Fr. Chrysostom, superior of the Franciscans of Orleans) Oh! The Rosary and the “Hail Mary, full of grace,” moves all of Heaven.

Preach this: it is a benediction which comes down from Heaven, to calm the rigours of the justice of my irritated Divine Son. I make all effort to appease His anger; but the multitude of offenses have become so great that I cannot tell you, my children, what I will be able to do when the measure [of sin] becomes full.

I supplicate often:  I take the hand of the Saviour; I press it on my heart and I say:

“Oh, my well-beloved Son, not for me, but for my little souls, for my children, again, again, Lord, withhold Thy hand.”

As you greet me, I greet you . . . and I send you a soft look from my eyes. The Well-Beloved, whose throne is above my immaculate person, receives all this from me.”

(Jeanne Rialland, October 1932)

 [Source:  pp. (p. 117-118), Le Ciel en Colloque avec Marie-Julie Jahenny.  Note:  Jeanne Rialland is another of the devoted secretaries who would offer their services to record the daily ecstasies. We know nothing about her, except that, if she is included in Father Roberdel’s book, then she must have been considered reliable].

 

Reflection on this prophecy:

In this prophecy, Christ reminds us that He has given us His greatest Treasure, His Own Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary. 

She looks over us and blesses our efforts here on earth. There is nothing that our Blessed Mother cannot help us to face and conquer.

As we face the rumour of nuclear war with Russia, China, and North Korea, this prophecy reminds us of the Infinite Power of God, and of the greatest weapon which we hold in our hands, the Holy Rosary, as a means of gaining Divine Mercy.

In the section of this website labelled simply Marie-Julie Jahenny, we see her share in the Passion of Christ for 3 intentions:  the Holy Father, the triumph of the French Monarch, and lack of confidence in Mercy in the days of tribulation.  Marie-Julie Jahenny

Even if it is just for we ourselves to avoid the eternal fires of hell, Christ our Lord assures us that the Hail Mary’s are so strong, that just praying 3 per day, “the first in honour of her purity, the second in honour of her humility, the third in honour of her charity; even if you have done only that during your life, I will recognize you as the blessed children of my Mother and I will receive you in Heaven.”

This is a great Mercy from God! Do we realize this Infinite Mercy towards our sin-filled souls?

The Blessed Virgin Mary shows Marie-Julie the effect of praying the Holy Rosary:  “Oh! The Rosary and the “Hail Mary, full of grace,” moves all of Heaven,” says Marie-Julie.

The Mother of God instructs Marie-Julie: “Preach this: it is a benediction which comes down from Heaven, to calm the rigours of the justice of my irritated Divine Son.”

The Holy Rosary, prayed daily, is the way that we can show confidence in His Mercy in these days of tribulation. We will gain peace of heart and mind and soul, and we will lessen the sufferings of our Crucified Lord over this worldwide lack of confidence in His Mercy.

May our prayers also serve to restore the confidence of mankind in Christ’s Mercy!

Let us take our Holy Rosaries in hand and have confidence in His Mercy!

Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum!  Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.
