Sievernich, 03.01.2005 (5.20 pm approx)

I felt a great sensation of heat and then began to see the large oval light of the Immaculate One to the left of the altar. Our Lady Immaculate emerged from this light and came to us dressed all in white. She wore a gold crown on her head and in her hands she held the Mount Carmel scapular and a white rosary which was made of white roses. The Mother of God was standing barefoot on the globe. She lowered her head to the side and cried silently.

I said to her: „I greet you, holy Virgin Mary!“

She now looked up at us and said:

„Dear children, pray, pray, pray! Pray and do penance so that people will no longer insult my beloved divine Son so frequently! How often His love is rejected. I have called you so that His grace can be bestowed on you.“

I was now able to present my concerns to Our Lady. As I had been receiving a number of invitations from various places and countries to give talks on Our Lady's apparitions in Sievernich, I asked the Immaculate One whether this was to be my task. To this she replied:

„Do that which I ask of you and which my Son desires from you. What has been happening in this place?“

I answered that she has appeared to me with her Son Jesus in the church of Sievernich.

Then she spoke:

„You do not need to travel for my Son and me. That which is taking place in this church is in accordance with the wishes of my beloved Son. He grants you His grace which will speak for itself. Your mission is the Spiritual Centre. Help people to live the faith. Look at my Son Jesus.“

I was then able to put my second concern before the Immaculate One. A man had queried the validity of one of the mysteries of the luminous rosary. The bishops had shortened the mystery recommended by the pope. He was now uncertain as to how to pray it. Our Lady replied:

„Tell him to remain obedient to the church; he must pray it in the spirit of communion, in obedience to the bishops.“

The Immaculate One leaned over us with the Mount Carmel scapular blessing us and the rosaries. Several sick people received individual blessings from her. I was allowed to touch her left foot.

 

Feast of the Epiphany, 6 January 2005

I heard the voice of Saint Teresa of Avila:

Jesus, the divine Child, His sweetness and and sublime Majesty concealed from many, calls all nations to Himself. He wishes to give Himself to each nation.

Adore Him, you nations, pray to Him the King of Kings. The Magi presented Him with gold, frankincense and myrrh. You, however, give Him your heart and adore Him!

My Lord Jesus,

contemplating lost humanity

You Yourself became man,

at the same time retaining Your divine Majesty.

Sublime Saviour,

I want to adore You just as the Magi did

when they found You.

Hidden Godhead, Lord Jesus,

I adore You with my whole heart.

I entrust my entire being to You, oh Lord.

I give You my whole life, King of Kings.

Pleading, I approach You, hoping

that in Your mercy You might accept my gift.

If You but reign in me, all my actions shall be

in Your honour.

I have nothing else to give You.

I ask You that my wretchedness might be transformed

in You.

When I gaze upon You and adore You Lord,

I am enriched.

I do not wish to adorn myself with worldly riches;

my soul desires to be adorned with Your love and friendship.

I adore You,

You will bestow on me the the pure gold of Your kingdom.

I adore You,

You will adorn me with precious jewels,

the virtues of heaven.

I adore You, Lord Jesus,

You will look at me and put divine jewellery on me, the jewels of

eternal faithfulness.

I adore You,

though I am poor, You adorn me and

provide me with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

I adore You, my Jesus,

kneeling before You, wretched, unworthy

yet precious in Your eyes.

Your wish is for you to be wholly united to me and me to You.

I adore You, unending, utterly self-giving Love.

 

Monday, 17 January 2005

I heard the voice of Saint Teresa of Avila:

As You gaze in silence upon the Lord, you are safe in His hands. It is He who wishes for your soul to be cradled in Him. He wants to transform your heart. He, love personified, desires to make your heart into His throne. Bid Him enter, pray and seek silence, so that what He wills be done to you.

In Silence I am safely cradled in You,

oh Lord Jesus, my Saviour.

Silence stills my yearning for You,

in silence you dwell.

Silence stills the thirst of my soul,

You are my living water.

Silence stills the hunger of my heart,

You are my living bread.

Silence stills my thoughts,

I abandon myself to You.

Silence stills my deeds,

You act within me.

Silence stills my hearing,

I desire to hear only Your word.

Silence stills my seeing,

I want to see You and abide with You.

Silence stills me in You!

 

28 January 2005

I heard the voice of Saint Teresa of Avila. She prayed thus with me:

My Lord Jesus,

take my heart into Your hands.

Plant Your love therein.

Grant me the confidence and trust necessary

for Your love to grow in me.

To allow Your love to grow,

I need an open heart.

Lord, I want to be a fertile ground for You.

You plant, You are my living water

and my eucharistic sunshine.

Grant me an open heart

to break down the constraints of the first Adam.

Thus liberated, I can walk freely in Your loving realm

confidently loving You and my neighbour.

 

Monday 2 February 2005 - Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord

Saint Teresa of Avila spoke to me after prayers:

„Contemplate Our Lord with me; the spotless Lamb, the King of Kings, the Almighty sacrificed for our sins. How could this happen? Was it not foolish of Him, the omniscient One? Out of infinite love for us He becomes a Sacrificial Lamb, so that we might not be lost.

Renunciation - this word is unappealing to those who are not anchored in the Lord. The Blessed Virgin Mary, at her meeting with the angel, renounces herself and opens up completely to the working of God’s power.

Saint Joseph renounces the social order of his time. As a man, subject to the consequences of original sin, he is tempted. Yet his love for Mary and for God leads him out of temptation. This love allows God to give a sign. Joseph - a fine man, older than Mary and wise - renounces not only his rights but also the worldly life.

Saint Joseph and the Blessed Virgin Mary, both are wonderful to contemplate and strong in renouncing the world!

How often I have advised my sisters to turn to Saint Joseph prayerfully in all matters and especially in times of temptation. If the heavenly Father was pleased to entrust His only Son and the life of the Blessed Virgin to him on earth, then how much more can we expect his help as we turn to him with confidence. I entrusted myself to Saint Joseph daily, as I was aware of his greatness. Just as Our Lord placed Himself trustingly into Joseph’s care, so He places Himself daily into the hands of His priests. Therefore I recommend that priests, too, turn to Saint Joseph in prayer every day. He will provide them with strength in all their troubles and lead them out of distress, because he himself had renounced the world.

Spiritual Fathers, do not seek advice from those who love the worldly life; they do not know renunciation and deem it foolish. Rather, seek comfort from those who lived lives of renunciation and those who continue to do so today. Renouncing the world opens one’s soul for His Majesty. He who does not renounce recognises neither the world nor the work of His Majesty.“

 

Friday 11 February 2005

After morning prayers I heard the voice of saint Teresa of Avila:

„My friend, do not be concerned with those who try to lay traps for you. Love them, forgive them, pray for them. You need only look at Our Lord, His divine Majesty and His heavenly Mother. Nothing else belongs in your heart as the Lord Himself seeks to live there. It is not unusual, even for pious souls, to succumb to pride and envy and then to look at you, little one, and declare that it is all as nothing. You may be unworthy, yet what they forget is that everything is as the Lord, His Majesty, has wanted it to be. In His school, to which you belong, one doesn’t look to oneself; rather, one forgets oneself completely. Let God act! Do not worry. God’s will is done. Take care only to serve His church faithfully. Heed the words of His sublime Majesty and of our heavenly Mother. Serve the church.“

 

Monday 14 February 2005

A star floated over the central aisle from the church entrance right through to the sanctuary. Beneath it a white, oval light was taking shape. From this light emerged the archangel Gabriel. His figure and clothing resembled those of the image painted in honour of his apparition in the church of Sievernich. He was wearing a white garment

and a blue sash around his hips. His hands were folded in prayer. Of large stature, he wore a gentle though earnest expression.

He said:

„Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit...“

I replied: „...as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.“

He continued:

„The heavenly Mother wishes you to pray and to fast! I will present your requests to Her. Our celestial King will bring you His salvation.“

Gabriel blessed us all in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

At this point, a ray of white light emanated from the oval light behind him and came towards us. Suddenly, he disappeared and the light diminished until it was no longer visible.

 

Sievernich, 07. 03. 2005 (5.25 pm approx)

An octagonal, brilliantly radiant star travelled through the air from the church entrance through the central aisle into the choir where it remained suspended to the left of the altar. A gentle buzz accompanied this star as it passed us. Its diameter measured approximately 60 centimetres. Beneath it, though somewhat to one side, a bright, white light appeared from which emerged the archangel Gabriel. He was dressed in white with a blue sash about his waist. This sash was adorned with two gold embroidered motifs. The uppermost end of the sash portrayed a cross at the foot of which was the letter 'M' surrounded by twelve stars. The lower end revealed the papal tiara.

The archangel prayed with these words:

„Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit...“

I was thus able to complete the prayer: „...as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.“

He said: „Pray, make sacrifices, do penance!“

He now held two bowls in his hands. A dark one in his left hand and a gold one in his right. He asked me which one I would choose. The dark one contained worldly joys and the gold one heavenly ones.

I chose the bowl with the heavenly joys and he told me that this choice would entail some sufferings for me.

He came closer and said:

„Follow me!“

I did not know where to go. He came closer still and instructed me to kneel in the central aisle which enabled me to face directly both the altar and tabernacle. I could also see the archangel Gabriel closely by my side.

He prayed and I repeated his words:

„Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and precious Blood of Your most beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, for the atonement of all indifferences towards the Blessed Sacrament.“

(I hope to have recalled the exact wording of this prayer, as I was only able to write it down after the apparition.)

He continued to say:

„The heavenly King and Queen desire that this place become a place of adoration and conversion.“

Then he instructed me to kiss the ground before the altar and tabernacle three times. He said:

„For the conversion of sinners.“

At this point I kissed the ground for the first time.

He continued with these words:

„For priests.“

I kissed the ground for a second time.

He then said:

„In atonement for abuses, desacrations and attitudes of indifference towards the sacraments.“

For a third time I kissed the ground.

Again he spoke:

„In this place you can experience the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is a wonderful grace.“

Finally, he blessed us and all our letters and rosaries in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and agreed to bring all our petitions before the Mother of God.

His final words were:

Praise be to Jesus Christ in all eternity. Amen.“

Then he vanished into the light. The light and the star diminished and then disappeared.“

 

Easter Sunday, 28. 03. 2005

I heard the voice of Saint Teresa of Avila:

„Contemplate Our Lord Jesus, the Crucified One, with me and His suffering and cross. How powerful and hard ... yet how shortlived is this time when measured against the immense joy which the Lord continuously gives us.

Halleluja, He is truly risen and has overcome the world with its sorrow and its pain. It is by joining the cross to Our Lord Jesus that humanity shall experience salvation. (Comment: It is only through uniting our activities, sacrifices and sufferings to the merits of Jesus and offering these to the heavenly Father, that they bring salvation for our souls. Without Christ there is no salvation. John 15, 4-6: Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; nor can you, except you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches: he who abides in me, and I in him brings forth much fruit: for without Me you can do nothing.)

Contemplate the Risen One with me. How much joy He places into our hearts with His good news. We may follow Him and rise in Him. Jesus does not abandon us, He remains with us in together with the Holy Spirit because He is risen.

All this He has done for you, dear reader, do not forget this! You are loved by Him from the beginning, you are a part of Him and He desires that you find the way to Him, as it is destined for you. Rejoice, for His resurrection is also ours! Never tire in your love for Him; follow Him with gladness!“

She prayed thus:

„Should I walk through darkness and pain,

You have walked before me.

I know Your way, You know mine.

You, Lord will not let me step into the unknown,

you will catch me.

I contemplate Your cross,

though not without You, my Lord.

You have risen in glory,

and with You victorious light

You have brought us joy.

My heart is on fire for You, the Risen One!

Permit me, oh Lord,

to rise in You each day,

show me your victorious Easter light.“

 

Sievernich, 04. 04. 2005, feast of the Annunciation to Our Lady

I experienced a sensation of great heat. To the left of the altar appeared the brilliant oval shaped light of Our Lady. The Immaculate One stepped out of this light. She was dressed all in white with a shining golden crown on her head. In her hands she held a golden rosary. The brown scapular of Mount Carmel lay over her arm . She was standing barefoot on a cloud as she looked at everyone and smiled. In my joy at her coming I said: „I greet you, blessed Virgin who have come today ... you are here at last!“

To this she replied with these comforting words:

„I had not yet said 'good-bye'.“

Full of joy I repeated her words: „Indeed, you had not yet said 'good-bye'.“

Then she said:

„Dear children, I greet and bless you in the Name of my beloved Son, Jesus Christ. My Son would like you to consecrate yourselves wholly to my Immaculate Heart.“

She moved closer to me and made a sign with her hand, inviting me to prostrate myself on the floor of the central aisle. I did as asked and repeated her words as follows:

„Oh my Jesus, I belong to you completely. Mary, I consecrate myself wholly to your Immaculate Heart. Oh Jesus, have mercy on me. Oh Jesus, have mercy on us!“

At this point I returned to my pew. Our Lady then said:

„The Word was made Flesh.

May this day become the Feast day of this place!

Pray, pray, pray! Pray for all nations!“

She proceeded to bless the rosaries in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. We were then all gathered under her protective mantle. There we were sheltered and I briefly saw a wonderful light. In this light stood a crowd of people clothed in white. However, I was not able to recognise any of them.

She said:

„I am giving all of you the grace of my Son Jesus. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit..“

I replied: „...as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.“

Then the Immaculate One gently retreated and disappeared into the light.

 

Sunday, 17. 04. 2005, World day of prayer for vocations to the religious life and the priesthood

I heard the voice of Saint Teresa of Avila:

„God gave man his most important tool, namely hands which are raised to Him in prayer. Praying hands are loving hands. Loving hands are helping hands. Your hands, extended to Him in prayer, are the bridge, the link to the Lord. They are a bridge without a beginning or an end, one which transcends all barriers; a bridge which is firm and strong in the Lord, for it leads to Him and it is He who has taught us to build it. Deo gratias!“

 

Sievernich, 02. 05. 2005, 5.30 pm approx.

I experienced a sensation of great heat. Then I saw the bright, oval light of Our Lady to the left of the altar. The Mother of God stepped out of this light as Mary, Immaculate. She was dressed in white and wore a golden crown on her head. She held a rosary and the Mount Carmel scapular in her prayerfully folded hands. The Immaculate One stood barefoot on a cloud and at her left foot lay an open, golden rosebud. The beautiful light remained in the background. She said:

„In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit!“

She glided closer to us and addressed us:

„Dear children, I greet and bless you in the Name of my beloved Son Jesus Christ. Your prayers have drawn graces from heaven. My dear Son gave you John Paul II and Benedict XVI. This is my Son's answer to your prayers.

Dear children, faith should come from the heart. My Son Jesus will show you a sign, though not evidence. He wants you to find your way to Him in love and by your free will. He has called you and invites you all.“

The Immaculate One smiled. She opened her mantle from which light poured forth. John Paul II stood beneath Mary's mantle. He smiled, looking much younger and no longer sick and frail. He said:

„Because I followed Jesus, I am now able to sit at His table - though not due to my sufferings, but His!“

The Immaculate One said:

„Pray for the church, this is very important!

I have come to you today, in order to give you the grace of my Son Jesus. My child, I leave you now in the presence of the Eucharistic Lord. It will soon be time to say 'good-bye'.“

She blessed everybody and gently returned to the wonderful light.

 

Sievernich, 9 May 2005

As I prayed silently before the tabernacle in the parish church of Sievernich , a bright light emerged from the tabernacle and turned into a sun. In this sun appeared the Holy Face of Jesus, resembling that of the Turin Shroud, only this was more radiant and wonderful. Jesus spoke:

„I am the Lord, your God. I am with you. What is lacking in you, I give to you. I am Love itself, and only love is able to silence all evil. I am your Saviour, trust in me.

„I wish to immerse you all in my Sacred Heart, so that you may be cleansed from all sin by my Precious Blood. Offer up to me this Precious Blood, in particular for my disciples, the priests.

 „My love is victorious! Amen.”

Jesus said the following words in private:

„He who has consecrated himself to my Sacred Heart and placed himself into it completely, will not be abandoned by me!”

 

16. 05. 2005, Monday after Pentecost

I heard the voice of Saint Teresa of Avila:

„Should people ask your advice, my friend, regarding their own supernatural experience of God, listen to them and do not allow yourself to be troubled. The true Spirit of God blows and in doing so, He breathes humility and genuine servitude into a soul.

The recipient of true gifts of God will tend to adopt the correct approach and turn to the church, to a spiritual director and confessor. Should this not be the case, then advise them to do this. Without spiritual support their soul will err, for God's gifts need to be interpreted by the church; a considerable amount of experience is required to distinguish between that which comes from God and that which comes from the other side.

If there is resistance in submitting to the judgement of the church, no credence should be given at all. For whence would come the necessary humility and respect for God? Would the Holy Spirit not have needed to inspire the soul with these virtues?

Therefore, if such a person speaks to you of their gifts, I suggest you swiftly recommend that they entrust everything to a spiritual director. Just as you subject yourself to the judgement of the church, so God would want this person to do likewise and not to proclaim his gifts until the church has carried out a thorough examination. Should the soul refuse, then it is full of pride and must remain silent.

This rule is God's will as it is a sound one. Theology and knowledge of God go hand in hand.“

 

Sievernich, 06. 06. 2005 (5.22 pm approx)

Our Lady stepped out of the wonderful bright oval light as the Immaculate One. She was dressed all in white with a golden crown on her head. In her prayerfully folded hands she held a rosary made of blue roses, at the end of which was a golden cross. She was barefoot and a red rose lay at her feet. She had a big smile and blessed us all: „In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.“ She glided closer to us and golden rays, emanating from the circle of light which surrounded her, came down on us all. These rays reached as far as the church door. She said:

„Dear children, I greet and bless you in the name of my beloved Son, Jesus Christ! Pray, pray, pray! Children, do you know why so many saints accompany you and why they have appeared in Sievernich? Saint Josaphat, Saint Sister Faustina, Saint Charbel, Mirjam of Abellin, Father Alef?“.....(She listed Saints and people of religious significance who had appeared in Sievernich).

„They are praying for unity of the church in the truth. THERE CAN ONLY BE UNITY IN THE TRUTH.

I have come to you from heaven in order to bless and strengthen you so that you may follow my Son.“

I then presented my concerns to her saying: „Dear Mother of God, you and your Son Jesus have instructed me to create a spiritual centre for adoration in Sievernich. Yet I cannot carry out this task as I do not have the necessary approval of the priests. What can I do? I beg you to help me.“

She replied:

„My child, pray and do everything I tell you. Those who do not listen to my word will be held to account before my Son. Love and pray!

Forgive each other! See what my Son Jesus has done for you. Seek refuge in His most Sacred Heart. Endure great changes, be strong in my Son. Love, endure, forgive and be merciful!“

She glided out of the church in order to bless those waiting outside. After a few minutes she returned, gave a blessing and received all petitions into her open heart. I was a little afraid that today might have been her last apparition in Sievernich. She assured me that this was not in fact her last apparition. She blessed us once more before parting, said the 'Glory be to the Father....' and vanished into the light.

 

Friday, 17 June 2005, 3.00 pm

I heard the voice of Saint Teresa of Avila :

„Those who are close to the Lord and delight in His love, will receive sufferings from Him – not simply for the sake of suffering. Mere suffering would be pointless. It would not be desirable for man.

Instead they unite themselves with the Crucified One, and because of His suffering, they will suffer with Him. They suffer for those who live far from Him, in sin. They suffer so that these lukewarm people who are distanced from God, as well as those who despite being consecrated religious, constantly offend the Lord, might be saved. The Risen One will give them salvation: salvation to the suffering because of His love and to sinners because of His mercy.

You are my Shepherd, Lord Jesus,
At a time when your sheep are often abandoned.

You say to us: hold fast to me,
For I come to you as Eucharistic Saviour!
Live these times with me!

You, my sheep, must form a herd,
So that the heretics do not scatter you.
I want to take care of you and I see each one of you.

Come to me,
I await you in the sacraments of my church.
There I am all-present for you.

Sense and experience My love!

Lord Jesus, divine Majesty,
I want to do this and to be with You.

Whenever I visit You in Your church,
'You strengthen me in life.
You shine and light up for me my everyday.

Through adoration You give us spiritual fruits,
the branches of Your vine, our pastors.
Send them to us, Lord!
Gladly will we do You this favour
and pray for them,
so that Your herd may be led by shepherds
who live in Your love.“

 

Sievernich, 4 July 2005, 5.24 pm

I felt a sensation of great heat; then I saw a bright white oval-shaped light. Mary, the Immaculate Mother of God stepped out of this light. She was clothed all in white and was wearing a gold crown on her head. In her hands she held a rosary made of blue roses. The scapular of Mount Carmel was draped over her arm. She was floating on a cloud. At her feet lay a golden rose. She smiled and came closer to us.

Her first message was private.

She then said:

„Dear children, I greet you and bless you in the Name of my beloved Son Jesus Christ. Place your concerns into my Immaculate Heart. My Son Jesus loves you and He is merciful. I want to ease the pain of those who suffer just as my divine Son permits me to do.“

At this point follows an instruction given by Our Lady.

„I desire that all nations visit me in this place. Not for my honour but that of my Son who must be worshipped here!“

Rays of light descended on us from her.

I presented my concerns to her. She said to me:

„If my Son Jesus does not give you suffering, how do you hope to come to me to heaven?”

She glided outside the church, blessed the praying crowd, returned and blessed us all as well as the rosaries „in the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” Slowly she disappeared into the light.

 

16 July 2005 - On the subject of weakness

I heard the voice of saint Teresa of Avila:

„If you pronounce yourself master over sin, you will fall straight into its trap. Do not toy with temptation; instead you should avoid it, for it can bind you so quickly. If, however, you recognise in your weakness the Lord's magnitude, He will strengthen you unceasingly. He, the Sublime One, knows that you suffer from the consequences of Original Sin and thus will fall anew each day. Therefore He will lift you up again and again, ... He who is unending Love!

”He who truly recognises his own weakness lives in the Lord for he abandons himself to Him completely. If you call yourself weak, do not take yourself too seriously and if you live in Him, then He will bestow on you gifts and strength beyond measure.“

Then she revealed to me a prayer which she recommended for private devotion:

„Lord,
I am weak.

Strengthen me,
for without You
I fall.

I fall
hopelessly,
it seems to me,
into despair.

I call repeatedly,
hoping
and trusting.

Praying
I fall
into Your hands
and feel safe.

Your hear
my call,
You love Your child.“

 

Sievernich, 1 August 2005, 5.24pm (approx)

I felt a sensation of great heat and I saw to the left of the altar, from my perspective, a wonderful bright, oval-shaped light. Our Lady, the Immaculate One, emerged from this light. Clothed all in white, she wore a golden crown on her head. In her hands she held a rosary made of white roses and on her arm she wore the Mount Carmel scapular. Three roses, one white, one golden and one red, lay at her feet. She glided towards us on a cloud and smiled.

I said: „I greet you, holy Virgin Mary!“

She said:

„Prayer, Peace, Prayer!“

Dear children, I greet you in the name of my beloved Son, Jesus Christ. I have come to you from heaven - not to make you mighty. My divine Son wishes you to become loving people. People who love give thanks and ask; they do not demand. Come to my Son, Jesus. Perceive how He loves you.“

She blessed us all „in the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit“ and wonderful rays emanated from her heart towards us. The holy Virgin now spread her mantel out over us and the latter reached beyond the walls of the church.

She said:

„Tell your spiritual director, that it is my wish to have a well constructed, an ‘Immaculata-well!’ ”

Next followed a personal message.

Then she glided through the church out towards the people all of whom she blessed.

She said:

„Today I have come to you in order to alleviate your suffering. Place all your worries into my Immaculate heart.“

She blessed us once more „in the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” I thanked her wholeheartedly, upon which she slowly disappeared into the light.

 

27 August 2005 - Love overcomes sin in the world

I heard the voice of saint Teresa of Avila :

„God is eternal order. Everything in Him is well ordered. His order lasts eternally and I will summarise it for you in one word: Love! The Lord Himself is Perfect Love. All that deviates from this order and is thus disordered, is called sin. Sin is therefore a ‘distancing of oneself’ from the Lord, namely from Love itself. The whole of creation is subject to His order ... and so the world, which lives far removed from Him and does not recognise Him, will only be able to be healed, sanctified through His Love.

„How is His Sublime Majesty to achieve this? By sending His light, His own people into the world, who proclaim His Word and with a burning love carry out that which the Lord asked of them. It is not sufficient merely to have a burning heart. To overcome human respect and to do that which the Lord commands, therein lies the fulfillment of His Word. You ask, doubting, whether these people might not be consumed in the world...?

„God’s Love burns, it does not consume. The Lord’s light desires to be borne in the shelter of your heart. This flame wishes to be fanned by stillness and prayer. Consider this: it is the precious Light of the Lord, the flame of His Love, which He wants to kindle in you and in your neighbour.”

She taught me the following prayer:

„Lord,
in the darkness
of my heart,
kindle Your Light.

Your Light:
fanned in stillness,
flaming in prayer,
igniting my neighbour,
gives warmth and shelter.

My God,
all in all
and all in one,
all is one,
is Love.”

 

Sievernich, 05. 09. 2005 (5.24 pm approx)

I had the sensation of great heat. After a while, I saw the wonderful bright oval-shaped light to my left near the altar. Our Lady, the Immaculate One, emerged from this light. She was wearing a golden crown and was clothed all in white. In her hands she held a long rosary made of white roses. The cross on this rosary had a three-leaf shape at each end. The lower end of the cross touched the globe on which Our Lady was standing barefoot. The scapular of Mount Carmel was draped across her left arm. She had a kind though serious expression on her face as she approached us.

I said to her: „I greet you, holy Virgin Mary. Thank you for coming to us today.” She replied:

„Dear children, pray, pray, pray! I have chosen and blessed this place. It is the will of my Son Jesus Christ. Love my Son and be grateful. Many things will take place on earth, but I have gathered you beneath my protective mantle. Pray and never slacken! My child, do not take notice of obstacles, rather look at my Son, Jesus. Soon the time of our ‘good-bye’ will draw near. I would like you to greet me with a blessed candle.”

She blessed us all, especially the sick, „in the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” She said:

„Pray especially for those who do not love my Son. Immerse them in the Precious Blood of my Son Jesus. My beloved Son is the source of all graces. It is to Him you must give thanks!”

I was then able to touch Our Lady’s scapular. She now glided out of the church and blessed all the pilgrims. She later returned and said:

„When we next meet we shall also say ‘farewell’. I bless you, dear children and desire that you live in gratitude, peace and love with each other!

„Praised be Jesus Christ!”

Blessing us, she vanishes into the light.

 

Saturday, 17. 09. 05 – On the subject of the withered and the young fig tree

I heard the voice of saint Teresa of Avila:

„An overgrown fig tree stands in God’s garden. The gardener tends it, for the soil in which it is rooted is good, and he waits for harvest time. When it arrives, he sees that the tree has produced only withered fruits. Because of this and the negligible amount of life left in the tree, the gardener chops it down and tears its roots out of the ground. He then tills the good soil, plants a young fig tree, blesses it and allows it to grow. It grows and flourishes under his care and at harvest time it bears rich fruit.

„Consider this, my friend: the young tree cannot thrive beside the old, overgrown one. The old, useless tree with its shrivelled fruits would have taken all the soil’s goodness and the sunlight from the young tree. They cannot both survive next to each other. Yet neither will the old tree remove itself, nor the new one plant itself, nor indeed will the soil till itself v… . Many forget that this task belongs to the gardener, to the one who tends God’s garden.

„The Lord has pronounced His blessing over you and has sent His Mother to the people. Simply pray and call on Him! Look at Our Lord and not at the withered fruit of the old tree. Remember that He had tended this tree also until the time of the harvest. But that which bears no fruit He discards so as not to prevent the blessed young tree from carrying fruit in plenty.”

She prayed with me:

„Lord, be a blessing to me,
Let me grow in You.
Be my soil, my water,
My light.
I want to be Your tree,
To give You a blessed harvest of fruit.

Lord, be a blessing to me,
Protection from every storm
And from all danger.
You, Lord, are my gardener
Who plants, tends and cares for me.
I give You my life.
Take it for Your own
That I might grow in You.”

 

30. 09. 2005 - Happy are those who have not seen and yet believe

A man enquired about the Blue Oasis of Prayer saying:

„What can I do to walk truly along the path designated for me by the Lord and to be pleasing to God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit? I would also dearly love to see the Mother of God.”

Whilst I was praying for this man, St Teresa directed these words at him: „Open your heart wider than your eyes are able to see!”

 

Saturday, 01.10. 2005 – Placing everything into God’s hands

I heard the voice of Saint Teresa of Avila:

„From your hands let go of
Everything, placing it into the hands of God.
Fear nothing, trusting in the One
Who shelters you in His hand
And holds you in His Love.

„In Him alone place your trust,
Leaving those who pass judgment over themselves
To their talking.
Bear witness, be courageous and humble,
Letting the past turn into ripe fruit.

In seeing goodness, you grow.
Encountering pain, you mature.
Such is God’s school of life,
Embodying both love and sorrow;
Take courage in order to walk the Lord’s path.
How foolish not to take this road.

The world’s light will pass
And is but a pale glow
Against light eternal, God Himself.
Open your eyes, your ears, your heart
And consider your daily routines.
Indeed,
Our Lord awaits you therein,
In order to accompany you on the way to the Father.

Eternally sheltered in His hands
Which were, which are and will be.
None other will comfort you thus,
Or lift you up and hold you as the Lord.”

I felt a sensation of great heat, upon which I saw the bright oval light of Our Lady. In the middle of this light I saw something akin to thousands of tiny flickering specks of gold. Mary, the Immaculate One, stepped out of this light. She was dressed all in white and wore a gold crown on her head. In her hands she held a rosary fashioned of white roses. Draped over her arm was the scapular of Mount Carmel. Our Lady was standing barefoot on the globe. Both of her feet were on Germany. Three roses lay in a semi-circle at her feet. The middle rose was red, the one to the left was golden and the right hand one (from my perspective) was white. She smiled and glided over to me. Then she blessed us: „In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit!” She said:

„Dear children, I am so happy about your prayer. How many words I have already spoken to you! How often I have visited you! It is time for the Word to be not merely uttered, but lived. I desire for each one of you to become a true witness of my Son Jesus Christ. To you I stretch out my hand. I want to lead you to my beloved Son Jesus.

„Pray for all nations, for I do not want my children to be lost. My divine Son Jesus loves you so much!”

The Blessed Virgin glided out of the church and blessed us once more. After a while she returned to us and opened her mantle beneath which we were all sheltered. Suddenly I saw at her feet another smaller light. A bearded monk wearing a pale hooded habit emerged from this light. His hands were clasped together in prayer. On opening them, he revealed a medal with a cross. In response to my question about his identity, he introduced himself as Benedict of Nursia. He prayed with us.

Then the Immaculate One invited us to pray the Magnificat with her. She began: „My soul magnifies the Lord…”

As we concluded the prayer, she said:

„My child, bless your persecutors, avoid evil, I will remain with you.

„Today I want to say good-bye to you. I shall always be with you in this place. I have said everything. Live the gospel and remember my words. My beloved Son Jesus sent me to you, that you may become living witnesses of His Love. Pray, love and do that which my Son Jesus tells you, for the Word is eternal and living. Allow it to live in your hearts. I would love to see you all again in heaven.”

Our Lady blessed us all one last time. As a result of her blessing, each of the faithful had a cross of light on their foreheads. The Immaculate One held her Mount Carmel scapular towards me that I might touch it. The Holy Virgin Mary assured me that she was receiving into her heart and taking with her all our petitions. Then she glided backwards away into the light, and smiling she disappeared, as did the monk named Benedict.
