#249 - FATHERS
“For this cause I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom all paternity in heaven and earth is named.” – Ephesians 3:14-15
HEAD OF THE HOUSEHOLD
"My child, you will make it known to mankind that the head of an earthly family is the father. The Father Eternal will guide the father, the head of the household.
"A woman of earth shall not cast aside her role as mother and housekeeper. In her role as mother, she shall be the guardian of her children's souls and a helpmate of her husband, and a guardian also of his earthly soul and the soul eternal. By her example in her household, she has the power, as woman, for good or evil. She shall stay in her home and guide her children." – St. Joseph, July 15, 1975
WILL NOT MEET HIM ON EVEN GROUND”
"Women, you must be with your husband as a helper. You will not meet him on even ground, for you are destroying your image before God and man and you have nothing to gain.
"Women, what has become of you? You cast aside your role as a mother. You send your husband off to consort and defile his body with another man! Women consorting with women, shamelessly, without honor! You defile the temples of the Holy Spirit, your body! You must keep your bodies clean. They are the receptacle for the Holy Spirit.” – Our Lady, November 1, 1974
FATHERS, BE A FATHER
"Repeat, My child, my words:
"Families, bring honor to your homes. Fathers, be a father; discipline your children. Mothers, do not discard your role as a mother. Why have you sought to stand side by side with your husband without being subservient to him? You have lost your honor. The example you give to your children can lead them nowhere but into the darkness. A strong tree will bear good fruit. A tree that is fed with impure waters will not grow to maturity, but will die and wither on the vine.
"Prayer must be entered into the lives of your children. Prayer must be a way of life now, for you have chosen of your own will to cast aside the words of the Father." – St. Joseph, March 18, 1974
"Where is the place of the man and father? Where has he gone from the homes? Why has woman sought to take his place? Satan has created this delusion. The place of woman is in the home and the rearment of the child. The man will be the breadwinner and safeguard his home.” – St. Joachim, July 25, 1973
"Mothers, and fathers too, have gone astray in these dark days. Materialism has replaced spiritualism, and that is why the many catastrophes are being allowed upon your earth. There will be more floods with death, more volcano eruptions with death, more accidents that are not accidents, until you will surely come to your senses and realize that there is a higher power working at this time to bring you to your knees.” – Our Lady, June 18, 1986
"I also must give to you at this time another fact of your lives upon earth. You as parents--mothers, fathers must guard your doors well and rule; take discipline in the lives of your children, for they will bring much sorrow to your hearts as they grow--they grow in a world that has been given to satan. When your child opens his home, the door, he will face the agents of hell loosed upon earth to reclaim his soul. Protect your children, My children; be sure that as a parent you do not fall down in your duties to teach your children, for many are now receiving schooling that is based on atheism. Their books and manuals you do not read, My children. You must as parents be a safeguard, a home of holiness for your children, or they will perish; and your parent's tears shall flow upon the world, crying, too late, too late.” – Jesus, August 21, 1985
“COME TO ME”
"Come to Me, you who are burdened with sorrow: mothers in torment, fathers looking for straying children. They are the major victims of the plan of satan. Graces in abundance I give unto you for the asking.” – Our Lady, April 22, 1973
LADY’S LOVE FOR HER FATHER
"I bless you all, My children. You must, My children, understand the love of parent and child. I love My father as the children should love their earthly fathers and the Father in Heaven. It is sad to see the children who are being compromised in the web of evil.
"You who seek worldly gain, to destroy your soul--all this will be left when you come over to Us. You cannot buy your way into the Kingdom. Your only passport is grace and love." – Our Lady, August 15, 1971
BIBLE TO YOUR CHILDREN
"I have asked My beloved children to read the Book of life so that they may become knowledgeable. For it is in the knowledge of your God that you will be able to stand forth as true disciples of the Father. The Book of life and love, the Bible, shall never be taken from you. And the words once read will remain in your heart. Fathers of families, and mothers, give the example of this knowledge to your children. Take them with you to a quiet corner and read, for in this manner will they learn the truth and be given the light. Outside your doors, My children, We do not see many good examples.” – Our Lady, March 18, 1974
KEEPER OF YOUR CHILDREN’S SOULS
"My children, you will keep a firm foundation of faith in the hearts of your children. You cannot expect others to do this fatherly and motherly obligation. You as mothers and fathers are the keepers for the souls of your children, and as such you are held accountable in the eyes of all Heaven for the fall of your children's souls. You will also as parents battle satan as he seeks to destroy your families. It will be father against son and mother against daughter, division in the homes, as satan becomes stronger in his conquest.
"My children, pray constantly a vigil of prayer. I ask you not to do just lip service, My children, but pray from your hearts. The words do not have to be studied, but pray from your hearts. Ask and you shall receive. Believe and you will receive many graces.” – Our Lady, April 1, 1978
“RECOVER THE PEACE AND QUIET”
"My child, you are observing the foundation for all life and dedication to the Eternal Father--the home and the family. In your world today that has been caught in the snare of the wiles of satan, many families are heading to oblivion, disintegration, and destruction. The forces of evil, the agents of 666, have now infiltrated into the very heart of mankind: the home, the family.
"O My children, if you could only recover the peace and quiet of spirit that was once much evident in your homes and now has been replaced by all manner of creations of satan, creations that distract the minds of the innocent, creations that have taken the knowledge of their God from the children, while fathers and mothers are lost as they run to and fro gathering all the material wealth upon earth, seeking pleasures that are soul destroyers, and setting an example that can be and lead to an abomination within the family circle.
"The parents, the mother and the father, My children, must set a firm example to their children. When these children leave the family's home, they are subjected to all trials of error, deception, delusion, and lies.
"The parents of many have fallen into the error of feeding the body and starving the young souls. These souls, in the eyes of the Eternal Father, are young flowers that must be nourished with pure waters of truth, purpose, dedication to the road--place them on the road that will lead to the eternal Kingdom of God your Father in Heaven.
"But where are your children? They are fast approaching their destruction. Many of your children have gone now beyond the point of no return. Many parents must accept a penance, a severe penance, for the recovery of their children's souls.” – Our Lady, July 24, 1976
CHILDREN LIKE SOFT FLOWERS
"My child and My children, you may ask your priests for knowledge of the stories coming from the old, elderly fathers of My Son's Church, but can they tell you the truth now that their seminaries have become polluted with errors? Mothers cry to Me; I hear all their prayers, prayers to Heaven to save their children. And where can they find the knowledge of the truth to teach them? That will depend now upon an earnest mother and father, and discipline. Children are like soft flowers that must be nourished so that their stalks will grow; and their faces, the purity of their faces, shall rise toward Heaven and be nourished with the fruits of life.” – Our Lady, September 14, 1985
"O My loving children, if you could only understand how very much I want to share the joys of Our world here with you! How many souls I long to touch with the grace to 'see'! Many could share this grace if they would but open their hearts to Us. Close your eyes, close your ears, and listen with your heart.
"They will try to still your voice, My child, but have no fear. I surround you with My Immaculate Heart.
"The recognition of the Father will not be denied, for His disobedient children will ask for a Father's chastisement. I do not seek to place fear in your hearts, but only the realization of the possible consequences.
"Have heart, for the dark days will be shortened for the elect, the children who sought to comfort Us when We were cast aside." – Our Lady, October 6, 1970
“PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN!”
“Your generation have become perverse and indoctrinated by satan, until the cults of satan now are well stacked in your country. Your children will be the victims.
"Yes, My child and My children, I know it is difficult for you to understand, without having an actual meeting with these satanists, to see how vile they are, how they desecrate everything, and how they torment the souls of the children and those they have in their grasp.
"Protect your children! All the mothers and fathers of the world, protect your children, or they will disappear from your homes forever. Even human sacrifice is taking place at this very hour that I am here with you. How can We do anything but beg with you to listen now, before it is too late!” – Jesus, June 18, 1990
FATHERS MUST FULFILL THEIR MISSION
"Your country and your world must embark upon a constant vigil of prayer. The family that will pray will stay together.
"Mothers must teach their children the true Faith. Fathers must fulfill their mission as fathers to their children. The example in many homes is poor and will not be tolerated by the Eternal Father. Measure for measure, you shall reap what you have sown.
"Parents must give to their children the knowledge of the Commandments of the Father. No excuse is accepted for casting aside these Commandments.
"Discipline your souls, My children, your spirit! Discipline your human body. Do not allow yourselves to be swallowed up in the mire of destruction.” – Our Lady, March 18, 1975
YOUR KNEES IN PRAYER
"The heads of all households--mothers, fathers will bend your knee now in prayer with your children. You must now appear to your God with a humble heart, do penance, make atonement and many sacrifices.” – St. Michael, June 18, 1975
DUTY AS A PARENT
“The pages of the Book of love and life must turn, My children. But would you know what lies before you, you would be on your knees constantly, begging that this chastisement will be lessened upon you. Have you prepared yourself as I have come to prepare you? Have you listened to My words, or have you hardened your hearts to My pleas?
“O My children, I have wandered the world in sorrow. I have approached many, and many have turned their backs upon Me.
“Mothers, fathers, guard your children! It is your duty as the parents to protect the souls of your children for Us, for those who were given the grace to teach are now misleading in error.” – Our Lady, February 1, 1972
HAVE CRIED GREAT TEARS”
"My child and My children, I have cried great tears, My child, since I last saw you, for the fathers and mothers, the poor mothers--they do not know what lies ahead for their children, their children of all ages. Satan and his legion of demons and devils are loosed now upon earth in full force. They are doing very well, My children.
"And I sorrow and cry bitter tears because many of you who have heard My voice through the years have taken on a firm, undisciplined attitude of, 'Oh well, nothing's happened now; it shall not happen soon, for everything remains as it was when the Father started it.' My child and My children, that is not an attitude that should be taken by anyone. The Eternal Father, with My Son and the Holy Ghost, are all-merciful, but you do not even recognize the Eternal Father, My children. You cast Him aside as a myth or a story. But there is definite proof, My children, in the Book of life and love, the Bible. But how many have taken the time to even check through the Bible?” – Our Lady, July 25, 1985
“There must be action taken now against the forces of evil. The children of the world are truly the victims. Mothers and fathers of the world, will you not protect the souls of your children? You must take action against those who are propagating the evil.
"Parents, have you examined what your children have been reading? Their eyes, which are the mirror of the soul, are being polluted, their souls being destroyed by the pornography being sold for profit and gain. Why is there no action, My children, to safeguard your children? Many parents will cry bitter tears of anguish, but too late, too late!” – Our Lady, August 14, 1975
TRUTH, FAITH, TRADITION
"The children must be guided by the family. The truth, the Faith, the Tradition must be instilled in their hearts by the mothers and fathers of a family. Do not expect your children to go beyond your doors and be instructed in truth, for the world has been given to satan. Many who should be showing a firm and true example have gone the easy way of the flesh, for they care more for the treasures and glory of this world, earth, than what the future has for them.” – Our Lady, December 6, 1975
"Children of the world, there is so much discord among families. There is so much deterioration among families. This is not a good sign. The family unit must be together under the true sign of the living God. Mothers and fathers have a great responsibility for their children. You who spend your hours, so few upon earth, giving your children their bodily delights, their materialistic wishes and pleasures, while their souls are starving and they are being led on the path that will take them farther from the Kingdom. Sin, the darkest of sins, are being committed in the homes. What example as parents are you showing to your children?
"Woe to the man who casts aside his wife to find pleasures with another. Woe to the woman who casts aside her children, seeking forever to bedeck herself with riches and the pleasures of the world. The family that throws away the directions given by the Queen of Heaven for the salvation of their soul goes down the dark road; it is a road that leads to Lucifer. And the numbers of children's souls being claimed daily are countless. And many of these children have been cast into hell by their parents. Woe to these parents when they stand before the Father!
"We look upon your world. Love! What is the true meaning of love in your world? Indecency, immodesty of dress, destruction of the true meaning of the creation of life! Your world is now in a state far worse than when the Father destroyed it during the time of Noe and Sodom! What can you expect unless you turn back now?
"I am not a man who has spoken many words to the world in the past. Your Mother and One, my Son through the Father, sacrificed Himself for a generation that now is worse.
"I add my admonition to you, I, Joseph, that unless you follow the directions for your salvation now, the days for your existence and the end of your era will be soon." – St. Joseph, December 30, 1972
“STRONG FATHERS OF STRONG WILL”
"I have asked you to retire from this world of yours that has been given to satan. Homes shall be a fortress against the evil. You will nourish the souls of your children within your home. Strong fathers of strong will--discipline! Mothers of good example--examples of purity and piety, and chastity! It is a sorrow to My heart to observe that the nature of mankind has become as animal.” – Our Lady, September 13, 1975
"I counsel all leaders of government to return to the commands of his God. I counsel all mothers and fathers, heads of households, to return to the commands of their God. I counsel every man, woman, and child who hears My voice and the Message from Heaven to do penance, atonement, and sacrifice--if not for yourselves, but to save your priests, your clergy, your cardinals, your bishops who are fast heading into the abyss.” – Our Lady, June 4, 1977
"I wish that all mothers and fathers bring this simple prayer to the hearts of their children. For in the future, with the raging wars and pestilence and famine that will come upon mankind, many will pass over the veil at a young age. You must teach them, parents, to say this simple prayer to Heaven:
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take. – Jesus, June 17, 1989
YOU CLEANSED YOUR HOMES?
"Soon, very soon, My children, a great Warning will be sent to mankind. How many of you shall take note of this Warning, that it has come from the Eternal Father, from His merciful heart, to give you time to prepare?
"Then the Ball of Redemption shall come to cleanse the world with a baptism of fire! Have you prepared your children? Have you cleansed your homes?
"Parents--mothers, fathers, protectors of souls--why have you given yourselves to the world, entering into the darkness and taking your children with you? What have you gained if you gather the riches of earth? For you will go into the veil--beyond the veil and face in judgment the Eternal Father! What merits will you have but those you have given to the world? What have you given to the Eternal Father? Your merits beyond the veil are not counted in earthly measure, but they are those of the spirit. Have you covered yourselves with a spirit of darkness or of the light?
"As human beings, My children, the Eternal Father has given you a free will! No man shall be forced into the Kingdom of the Eternal Father. He will have made his own choice.” – Our Lady, August 5, 1975
MOTHERS AND FATHERS, WHERE ARE YOU?
"The parents who depend on the schools to teach, in the schools the word of God has been taken out; in the schools, prayer has been forbidden by many. Therefore, the major responsibility for saving the souls of your children is in your homes now.
"Mothers and fathers, where are you? You are running to and fro making money, seeking pleasures. But you are not the only ones. You turn to your pastors, you turn to My Son's representative, the priest, and other ministers in the congregations of the world, and where are they? Their heads are in the sand. Their heads are in the clouds, clouds of darkness. They, too, are running to and fro seeking riches and pleasures. How many are holy, and how many are unholy? My children, they could be sorted very easily. There are so few who are holy. We do not say this to judge, My children, but We say this to bring it out as a fact. How many are holy? How many can stand before My Son and say that their teaching has been pure in His sight? What will become of these poor priests who have forgotten their mission, who have forgotten their vows? What will become of them? Many mitres shall fall into hell.” – Our Lady, June 18, 1982
FIRMNESS IS NEEDED
"I am a man of few words, preferring to stand behind my Son. But I do feel great sorrow for the state of man on earth and his family life. The family that does not pray together can not stay together, for prayer chases the demons from the household. Why has man no longer chosen to bless his home with sacramentals and the waters?
"I wish that all fathers of households stand forth and practice their role. They will use the rod and not permit their children to go astray. Firmness is needed in your world that is filled with laxity, permissiveness, and degradation.
"Your children have been misled by many who shall answer to the Father. As teachers they have failed in their role. Therefore, as parents you must succeed in yours.
"The greatest detrimental factor in the family and home is the desire for the material. Better that you live in the gardens and fields with the nourishment of manna from Heaven, than to be filled with the abominations of the world.
"Man has lost his way. Man has set himself from the road to the Kingdom. He has not much time to return to the road. He will gather his family about him and save those he loves, and in the charity of his heart seek to set an example for his neighbor." – St. Joseph, March 18, 1973
CLOSE WATCH UPON YOUR CHILDREN
"Mothers and fathers, I admonish you to keep close watch upon your children; be a fortress of faith to your children. And woe to the parent who sets a bad example in the home, for his punishment will be far greater than any human knowledge that can be given to him of what will take place over the veil.” – Our Lady, April 9, 1977
EXAMPLE OF ST. JOSEPH
Veronica - Now Saint Joseph is still standing. He's a very meek-looking man. He's smiling. And I can see that he has a great feeling--oh, I can see he's looking over to Our Lady, and there's such an expression of love. It's--I can't explain it. It's beautiful; it's such a beautiful expression that--oh, my! I'm sure that Saint Joseph should be an inspiration to all fathers in the homes. – March 15, 1978
SACRAMENT OF MARRIAGE
"My child, I know much of this discourse distresses your heart, but you can imagine well--and I know you do, My child Veronica--the sorrow My Mother feels now that sex education has entered upon the school system. We say unto you, and I say to you as your God, My children: Mothers and fathers of the world, you will not give over your children to be taught by demons! Satan has many loosed upon earth now. They enter into the bodies of any man, woman, or child who has fallen out of grace; and they enter into the bodies of those who teach your children error.
"It is the place and the will of the Eternal Father that the home shall be the safeguard for the children's souls--the mother, the father. But what can We expect, My children, when even the state of marriage, the Sacrament of Marriage, is being destroyed slowly? We know all that is going on upon earth--living together without unions under God. No, My children, that shall also be destroyed in time; if not by sickness and death of the body, it will also be by sickness and death of the soul.” – Jesus, June 6, 1987
MONITOR YOUR CHILDREN
"Know, My children, that you as parents must guard the souls of your children. You must monitor your children's lives. Set an example of piety! We find many mothers an abomination in the eyes of their Father. They disport their bodies like pagans! They permit their daughters to dress shamefully, until these misled children no longer recognize sin and it has become a way of life for them.
"The example of many parents in their homes is poor. Awaken! Awaken now from your darkness! Your children are without shepherds. Your children are without guidance. Parents, you will stand before the Father in judgment for the loss of your children's souls!
"Discipline must be returned to the home. The example must be godly. No longer shall God the Father tolerate laxity among His children.” – Our Lady, December 28, 1974
"Mothers and fathers, how often have I counseled you to protect your children in these days. You will find that many of those that you entrust to teach your children are bringing them into a world of unrealistic atheism. Already, My child, it saddens My heart to know that you are not, as a nation, allowed any longer to pray in your schools.” – Our Lady, June 18, 1992
FATHERS WHO HAVE SONS OF AFFLICTION
"All who remain with Me throughout these dark days will be saved. I promise to spread My mantle wide. Come to Me all who are burdened with sorrows: mothers, hearts filled with grief; fathers who have sons of affliction. I will comfort you, and I will strengthen you.
"Visit My Son as often as possible. He is very lonely in His houses throughout the world. He looks upon closed doors and waits.
"I, My child, have no need to repeat the many warnings that I have given you from these sacred grounds. My words must be summed up, My child, with the three words of direction: prayer, atonement, sacrifice.” – Our Lady, October 6, 1973
"Your children, what will become of your children? What manner of example are you permitting to be given to your children?
"Mothers and fathers, you must now bring rigid discipline into your household. As parents, you have an obligation to protect your children's souls. Do not depend upon or expect your pastors or your teachers in your schools to protect and build up the defenses for your children against the onslaught of evil. As parents, the full responsibility for the salvation of your children's souls will fall upon you." – Our Lady, March 18, 1977
TO BE A DISCIPLE
"To be a disciple for My Son, the test of love and obedience is great. No man or woman chosen for the path to Heaven shall go without test. You will be tested as metals in the fire. If you love your mother, your father, your sister, your brother, your wife, your husband, your children before, and place them between the border of spiritual salvation or destruction of the soul; if you place them first before My Son, you cannot be a disciple for Heaven, and your salvation shall be in the balance. The road to Heaven is a narrow one. The roses are given at the end of the road, My child and My children.” – Our Lady, June 13, 1981
FAMILES ARE DISINTEGRATING
"This I can tell you--because We are much grieved as We look into the hearts of the mothers and fathers throughout the world--not many are in the light. Families are disintegrating; the state of marriage is becoming nullified. Now it is fashionable in the United States, and many nations of the world, to discard the Sacrament of Marriage and to live together in sin. This, My child and My children, cannot be tolerated. Man must come back to the laws of his God, or he will be destroyed.” – Our Lady, May 17, 1986
ALWAYS HEAD OF THE HOUSEHOLD
"My child, you understand well why this direction is no longer accepted upon earth. You have now a new rebellious group called ERA, 'equal rights for women.' O My children, what a delusion this is among you! Do you not recognize that you will lose more than you shall ever gain because you defy the direction of the Eternal Father.
"Paul the Apostle wrote down the words given to him by My Son, Jesus. Adam was created in the image of God as man, and woman was given unto him as his helper.* As such, My children, man must always be the head of the household. There shall not be strength in a home divided.” – Our Lady, July 15, 1978
*1 Corinthians 11: 3-10; 1 Timothy 2:11-15; Ephesians 5: 22-30
THERE WILL BE DIVISION IN THE HOMES UNLESS…
“They will do as they have done in the past in honor of the Father; and in the path of the Father, they will listen to their husbands and honor their husbands within the home. If they do thus, they will receive honor from their children. The example in the homes is very, very poor.
"So husbands, now, you will act with love to your wives, but you will keep them in discipline. Many of them have lost their way. Discipline. And wives, honor your husbands and do your role as mothers in honor to your God. We see the example of the homes is very poor.
"It is not without meaning that We have chosen these colors. Womanhood must be returned to the state in which the Father created it. Right at this moment a great chastisement is coming upon you, for you have cast aside your role as women. This you will not do without receiving great chastisement.
"There will be division in homes unless the fathers stand forth as examples to their sons and daughters, and the mothers return to their roles as mothers in the light of God, the Father.” – Our Lady, April 13, 1974
