Teaching what one knows"Wrong is wrong even if every one is doing it; Right is right even if no one is doing it. “St Augustine”
There was a time, not so long ago, when as I was praying and had moved into a deep and relaxing state a little short of sleep, I heard Mary of the healing waters of life. This byzantine icon has been seen by Nina, at the Grotto in Mission and was told of, by another older woman locally. The Lady of the Healing Waters told me to write all I had learnt. That was a little confusing. Was I to describe the times during the night when I sat with Her on a mountain top of beautiful lush grass populated with blue flowers? Was it the catechism I was taught which supported me through many discussions in parks, streets and the Armed Forces as I grew up? I mean, of course, the Penny Catechism of England and Wales. This catechism was not bent by the adaptation of Ecumenism which has changed what are now considered in some parts of the Church as the harsh words of Christ. Some of the answers are said to frighten children. I mean the teachings of Purgatory, Sin and Hell.
In the early days of my blog, I wrote of the time when I freely admitted to Jesus Christ and His Mother I was willing to, rather listen and act upon those words and pictures (dreams) I knew to be from Them, which they gave me to see. I had conditions. Of course those looking to prove me to be, as one woman put it, living in the darkness or as man said as the Immaculate Conception told him, “I was from Hell”. I will remind you that this writing of these people is neither calumny nor detraction. It does not nor intend to contain either hatred or vengeance. These folks are unfortunate and not deep thinkers, just possessed of a wrong sense of their own worth. These thinkers would try to spin it that way. I neither presume or want to force anyone to believe in what I write but at least consider what I say. It was about this time when I became involved with the Towering Flame.
My conditions that I advanced were simple. First I could find the subject in scriptures. Two, It would be confirmed by an authority I could accept, that is an authority that lived the kind of catholic religious life that gave a good example. Three, that it could be confirmed by prayer. Four, a condition I have never spoken about. I would never lead anyone astray. You have a deal", was the first answer, the second answer was, “You will never go astray. We will always call you back” There was also other rewards that would be mine for obeying them or as St Joan of Arc said, Never will I disobey My Voices”. I expect the same treatment as this Saint received and from the same Jerusalem, for keeping her covenant with God.
One day I was praying for some local people and Mary said, (I do have a very good reason for using Her Name familiarly), “You need not pray for them Michael. They are in God’s hands”. I found this in Jeremiah 7:16. Jeremiah did pray, but for what did he pray? He must have prayed for their forgiveness obviously. Where did I find it; in the Penny Catechism? It could only be among the six sins against the Holy Ghost. The one that states it is a sin to envy another’s spiritual good. I still pray for those locally. One time I was asked by a person what I knew about the end times. Some kind of childish test I think. I heard, “Loudly inside my mind” “The secrets of the King are not to be shared with the knaves, rogues and drunkards at the temple gates”. The questioner immediately turned to one guy who turned up out of the blue, and said, “You had better go home. This is not for you”. One time I visited with a group and they told me not to upset the prophet who had come from Buffalo. He was a special favorite of the group I went to see. He was part of a dismal catholic sect and was an acquaintance of Little Pebble. They asked what did I think of Little Pebble and I answered straight away, “Bitter are the dregs he will have to drink” I would read St Faustina’s diary of drinking dregs and what it means”.
Here is the prayer given to me to use for the confirmation of whom I hear. It will be useless to many. Not in the use but useless due to their state of grace and prayer life. I mean that the use of silence to stay their pride. Bluntly this is an instruction shut up and listen for the answer and not imagine and claim to receive the answer that suits your ego.
I, Michael, sealed in the Holy Spirit, baptized and anointed in the Precious Blood of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, I ask You Almighty God, to command whoever is speaking to me to give me their name.
The right name which I shall not give you is found in scriptures. It is not in the prayer the answer is found but in the full authority of scriptures. By the way the Towering Flame is very scriptural too.
There are times when I use the prayer in another way, when I get some answers that will frighten many. I use it to send these and the "no "answers to hell. One day Mary said, "You must stop sending me to hell Michael. The devil gets very agitated when I arrive." I apologized for doing it as I did not recognize her Voice. Mary said, "If you do me know Me after all these years you had better go to confession".
