And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind and to things that should not be done. They were filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, craftiness, they are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, rebellious toward parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. They know God’s decree, that those who practice such things deserve to die—yet they not only do them but even applaud others who practice them. Romans 1:28-32
I have been watching all that is happening in our country with a sadness that I am sure that many of you feel. I am not here to comment on the details of what is happening. I wholeheartedly believe the only one who has all of the facts is God in Heaven. He sees what we do not. In my prayer he tells me we will all be humbled. I believe Him. I also have taken a look at what the Saints and faithful did in tumultuous times.
It was then that I came across Saint Genevieve that I thought we could all learn something. She lived in times of war, and after her death there was plague. I found the following two paragraphs from Catholic Online.
When Attila and his army of Huns came upon Paris, the Parisian Christians were prepared to run, but Genevieve spoke to them and convinced them to stay within their homes, fast and pray to the Lord. She assured them they would have the protection of Heaven. Her prediction came true as Attila suddenly changed his path and turned away from Paris.
After her death many miracles occured, the most famous occurrence was the miracle of Des Ardens, or the burning fever. In 1129, a violent fever swept through the city, and doctors couldn’t stop the people from dying. The shrine of Genevieve was carried in a procession to the cathedral, and during the ceremony, those who touched her shrine were healed by the power of the Lord. Throughout the whole town, no one else became sick, all the ill recovered and only three people died.
Here we have the Saints and faithful turning to the ways of God instead of the ways of men to help with all of the things that were happening.
It occurred to me that we should be doing those things; Praying and fasting and having processions. I know there have been some faithful Priests and leaders who have done these things, but we faithful can do this as well.
Our Padre Pio Nashville Group has decided to process with relics throughout our city and towns and neighborhoods, calling on the communion of Saints to protect us from COVID and violence. We must start turning to the ways of heaven. We must turn back to God. The Saints did not hide in their homes forever, they went out and changed things, even and especially when there was sickness. So on January 23 we will take many relics or many Saints and pray for protection and blessing. We realized after picking the day that this was the Feast of the Espousal of Joseph and Mary. May the Holy Family be with us.
It is time to put on the Armor of God in the ways that we can.
I will leave you with what I wrote in my journal yesterday, January 8, 2020 during adoration. As you know, I write what pops in my head as if God were speaking to me. If the church says what I have written is wrong, then the church is correct and I am wrong.
Beloved Lily of the Father,
The earth is in shackles because of sin. I came to proclaim the Kingdom of God at hand.
Still you turn to the ways of men to handle your sin. Do you not see what I am calling you to?
You hold back from me and I cannot pour my glory.
There are so few that understand.
You think you “know” but your knowledge is but a grain of sand. I AM knowledge. I AM truth. My ways are higher.
Still you seek only knowledge instead of seeking ME.
No matter how much you think you know, you are not GOD, I AM.
You seek in the wrong places and it takes you deeper into the abyss.
You have no idea what I made the human body capable of for the soul living in the Divine Will. You try to manipulate the body instead of seeking my will.
Therefore I hand you over to your desires since you see fit not to acknowledge me.
Death technology begets death. Freedom is found IN ME.
My bride will be purified, no corruption.
You worship like a prophylactic keeping MY BODY from you like a disease. I have been contracepted in reception of the GIFT of me. You have not abandoned yourselves to me, rather you want to serve mammon. You cannot serve to Masters.
Satan is trying to stop the consecration, wanting to abort the sacrifice the way he convinced you to abort your children, the way he convinced Martin Luther to break the family line.
I tell you, the Gates of hell shall not prevail.
I will remain with the remnant when Rome falls. The remnant who see, who trust me.
The living will envy the dead. The remnant will suffer but their total abandonment to me will bring Resurrection. A bride washed anew ready for the Bridegroom that I AM. You will be able to move mountains.
Those who knew me but justified their sin and remained in the pride of it handed themselves to wicked deeds – death is what befalls them. Remain steadfast and keep my commandments.
Those who truly see are few, their suffering united with me saves many And I will pour grace over them through my Mother and protection through my earthly father.
Be wise like a serpent and peaceful like a dove. Do not be afraid but be confident. I want more for you then you want for yourself. You have no idea how GREAT I AM.
– your Divine Spouse
