The World Cries -- We do not care what comes after this


"The World Cries,
we do not care
what comes after this!"
Our Lord's words to
St. Bridget of Sweden,
Prophesies and Revelations

Chapter 44

“I am the Creator and Lord of all things. I created the world and the world despises me.   I hear a voice from the world like that of a bumblebee who gathers honey on the earth.   For when a bumblebee is flying and begins to land on the ground, it emits a very raspy voice.   
I now hear this raspy and ignorant
voice in the world, saying
 ‘I do not care what comes after this.’   
In truth, now everyone is shouting:   
‘I do not care what comes after this
and may I have my own will!’

Indeed, mankind does not care about what I did for the sake of love by preaching and suffering for them and by admonishing them through the prophets, and they do not care about what I did in my anger by executing my vengeance upon the evil and disobedient.   

God's Justice against Sodom & Gomorrah
They see that they are mortal and that death can strike them unexpectedly, but they do not care.   They hear and see my justice which I exercised on Pharaoh and on Sodom for the sake of sin, and how I execute vengeance on other kings and rulers, and how I daily allow it to happen through the sword and other afflictions,
but it is as if
they were blind to all these things...
Does This Look Like Jesus is Getting the Praise?

And for this reason they fly like bumblebees wherever they desire, and sometimes they fly as if they were jumping and running, for they exalt themselves in their pride, but they come down quickly by returning to their lust and gluttony.  



"It's all about me"

They also gather sweetness for themselves from the earth, for man works and gathers for the needs of the body and not for the soul, and for worldly honor but not the eternal.
They transform the temporal things
into a suffering for themselves,
and what is useless,
into eternal torment.




But,
for the sake
of the prayers
of My Mother,
I will send my clear voice to these bumblebees, from which my friends are excluded (for they are in the world only in body),
and it shall preach mercy.
 If they will listen to it,
they will be saved."

Christmas Prayer


Christmas Prayer

Hail and blessed be the hour
and moment in which the 
Son of God was born 
of the most pure Virgin Mary, 
at midnight, in Bethlehem,
in piercing cold.
In that hour be gracious,
O my God!
and hear my prayer and grant my desires
through the merits of
Our Saviour Jesus Christ,
and of His Blessed Mother.
Amen

(It is previously believed that whoever recites the prayer about fifiteen times a day from the Feast of St. Andrew, November 30 until Christmas will obtain what is asked.)

A POEM FOR NEWTOWN - TWAS' 11 DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS




TWAS’ 11 DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS
A POEM FOR NEWTOWN
 

Twas’ 11 days before Christmas, around 9:30

when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven’s gate.

their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air.

they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.

they were filled with such joy, they didn’t know what to say.

they remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.

“Where are we?” asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse.

“This is heaven.” declared a small boy. “We’re spending Christmas at God’s house.”

When what to their wondering eyes did appear,

but Jesus, their Savior, the children gathered near.

He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same.

Then He opened His arms and He called them by name.

and in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring

those children all flew into the arms of their King

and as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,

one small girl turned and looked at Jesus’ face.

And as if He could read all the questions she had

He gently whispered to her, “I’ll take care of mom and dad.”

Then He looked down on earth, the world far below

He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe --

then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand,

“Let My power and presence re-enter this land!”

“May this country be delivered from the hands of fools”

“I’m taking back my nation. I’m taking back my schools!”

Then He and the children stood up without a sound.

“Come now my children, let me show you around.”

excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran.

all displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.

and I heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,

“In the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT.”

Excerpts from St. Bridget of Sweden –Prophesies & Revelations



St. Bridget of Sweden –Prophesies & Revelations

St. Bridgett of Sweden
 Chapter Seven

The words of the glorious Virgin to Saint Bridget about how to dress and with what kind of clothes and ornaments her daughter should be adorned and clothed.

“I am Mary who gave birth to the Son of God, true God and true man. I am the Queen of Angels. My son loves you with all of his heart. 

Therefore, you should love Him. You should be adorned with the most proper clothes, and I will show you how and what kind they should be.

Just as before you had an undershirt, a shirt, shoes, a cloak, and a brooch on your chest, so now you shall have spiritual clothes.  

The undershirt you shall have is contrition for your sins; for just as an undershirt is closest to the body, so contrition and confession are the first way of conversion to God. Through these the mind, which once enjoyed sin, is purified, and the unchaste flesh restrained from evil lusts. 

The two shoes are two intentions:  namely, the will to make amendment for your past sins, and the will to do good and refrain from evil

Your shirt is hope in God; and just as a shirt has two sleeves, so may justice and mercy be paired with your hope, so that you will hope for the mercy of God, yet not forget His justice. Think about His justice and harsh judgment in such a way that you do not forget His mercy, for He does not work justice without mercy, or mercy without justice. 

The cloak is faith, for just as the cloak covers everything and everything is enclosed in it, man can likewise comprehend and attain all things by faith. This cloak should be decorated with the tokens of your Bridegroom’s love - namely, how He created you, how He redeemed you, how He raised you and led you into His spirit and opened your spiritual eyes. 

Mary the Mother of God, Queen of Angels
The brooch, which should always be on your chest, is the frequent consideration of His suffering: how He was mocked and scourged, how He stood alive on the cross, bloody and wounded in all His limbs, how in death His whole body shook from the most bitter pain and anguish, and how He commended His spirit into the hands of His Father. May this brooch always be on your chest! 

There should also be a crown on your head, which means that you should be chaste in your desires, so much so, that you would rather endure a beating and pain than to be further stained.  Therefore, be modest and polite and do not think about or desire anything but
your God and Creator - 

for when you have Him, you have everything! 

Adorned in this way, 
you shall await your Bridegroom.”

Advent Prayer


 
Father in heaven,

The day draws near when the glory of your Son

will make radiant the night of the waiting world.
May the lure of greed not impede us from the joy
which moves the hearts of those who seek him.
May the darkness not blind us
to the vision of wisdom
which fills the minds of those who find him.
We ask this through Christ the Lord.
Amen.
