#201 - VANITY

“Vanity of vanities, said Ecclesiastes: vanity of vanities, and all is vanity.” – Ecclesiastes 1:2

"So, My children, store up your treasures in Heaven where neither robbers nor rust nor moths may dispose of them. For everything upon earth is vanity and passing. And not one man or woman or child can deny that he will also be as passing.” - Jesus, March 15, 1978 

“Penance is humanly painful, but after all penance, there is a great joy. Accept all suffering as My Son partook of the final dregs of the chalice of suffering, to open unto all mankind the treasures to be found in the spiritual Kingdom. Your reward shall not be found on earth but in Paradise--the epitome of glory, with the angels. It is the only reward that man should strive for--all else is vanity, and passing." - Our Lady, November 21, 1981 

"When the reign of iniquity has met its peak, then it will be necessary to stop it. We will not allow you to corrupt the souls of the young much longer. You have taxed the patience of your God with your pride, your intellectual pride, your vanity, your materialism, your humanism, excluding your God from your life.” - Our Lady, August 21, 1971 

"My garments--what are they doing to my garments?" [It was the change she saw in the habits of nuns that upset her. Nuns wearing these new habits are most disapproved of in Heaven; they are described as "half-hearted vocations," with vanity and much worldly attachment.] - St. Theresa, August 14, 1970 

"The forces of evil loosed upon your world gathered to try to stop the good work from Heaven. My child, it is a lesson for all that vanity and pride comes before the fall. You understand, My children, that man has a free will and is allowed to exercise it. And the greatest sin among man is pride. The angels in Heaven that joined Lucifer, satan, were cast out of Heaven as they became arrogant and sought to be God.” - Jesus, June 4, 1977 

"Though the forces of evil have entered the holy Church, they will not destroy the home of My Son. Do not abandon My Son because of the present confusion, for We will rescue you from the darkness.
     "Foolish virgins! Why do you choose to live in this world of earth? Have you become blind to modesty? Has vanity invaded your hearts? Woe to those who cause the downfall of Our dedicated by their examples. You are all following the evil circle, My dedicated; for it is like a chain of evil, link by link. By your example you build a solid chain to hell. For woe to those entrusted with the souls of the little ones, and who lead the little ones to hell!” - Our Lady,
November 21, 1970 

"The irreverence given to My Son in His houses upon earth cry out to Heaven for vengeance! Women, you will not disport yourself in nakedness in My Son's House! You will cover your heads--not because you come in vanity, thinking that your hair is a beauty, or the crowning glory of your being! Look to your soul to be your crowning glory. Your hair will be covered with the worms just as your body will enter into the dust. Better that you spend your time shining your soul than glorifying your body.
     "Cover your body before My Son! Do not defame and disgust Him by your presence and your acceptance of His divinity! Why, you are naked like pagans! Cover your heads! You do not follow the modernism and modes of an evil generation. No! The angels demand that all respect be given to the divinity of the Son of God in the houses throughout the world. Do not be misled by false pastors--those who care more for their worldly living and their easy living, and those who will not stand forward because the faith has become weak, and defend My Son before the enemies of God! No! They, too, will be cast aside with the goats. Fair warning I give. I cannot say that the Father is satisfied with the teaching of those He has chosen to guide the children and sheep of the world. No! I must say, there is great sorrow in Heaven." - Our Lady,
August 14, 1974 

"The long hair worn by My Son and those He chose to be His Apostles--why was their hair long? So that they would be rejected by the world. At that time, My child, only the old, the elderly, wore their hair in such fashion, and those dedicated to the rabbinicalhood--priesthood. It was not the custom of the day to wear hair long. If you will look into your books of history, you will note this. But My Son did not wish to be looked upon with vanity, though beautiful was His face. He chose to be unrecognized among the crowds, as did those He chose to be His teachers, the Apostles.” - Our Lady, August 14, 1974 

"My child, I have a humble lesson to give to your world. If you are to follow My Son and stay on the road that leads to the Kingdom, you must divest yourself of all desire for worldly embellishments. You must desire to strip your being of all worldly vanity and pride. You owe nothing, My children, to any human being but to bring him the example of a living Christ. The love of riches has destroyed many--the destruction of friend to friend, and brother to brother, and sister to sister for the love of money and riches; but saddest of all, the destruction of the soul." - Our Lady, December 24, 1972 

"The example We see of many parents is poor. Mothers--where is the word 'mother' on your earth? So few true mothers remain. They compete with their daughters, My children. Vanity, lust, fornication, adultery--all in the homes! All vile manners of fornication, tearing down the sanctity of the home. Parents, mothers, you are responsible as a parent for the souls of your children. If you permit them to expose their bodies to the public eye, you are guilty of a sin! You are guilty and shall receive your recompense.” - Our Lady, July 15, 1974 

"The Commandments of the Eternal Father must be followed. The Commandments of the Eternal Father will not be changed to suit the basic carnal nature of human mankind. No, I say unto you, you scholars of great renown, you will not escape the abyss, you who go about bringing satan into My Son's House! You with itching ears who run about seeking change; you who seek to make yourselves god! Remember the lesson of old. Lucifer, Luciel, he followed the same path--avarice, vanity--and he was banished. And I say unto you, My children, as you sow, so shall you reap!” - Our Lady, November 19, 1977 

"You have sown in the hearts of your children corruption, greed, avarice, vanity, materialism, humanism, modernism, loss of morals; and now what will you get but murder within the home! Sin has become a way of life. Life will have no value. Charity has grown cold in the hearts of most. My children, I repeat again: Only a few will be saved in the final count.” - Our Lady, October 1, 1977 

"You will continue, My child, to give My message to the world. Do not be concerned of who will believe you and who will not. It is only important that you go the way of the Father. It is your human vanity which you must shed. If you accept the plaudits of the world, My child, you have already gained your reward.” - Our Lady, November 1, 1974 

"And the maidens who have given themselves in dedication to their God, what have you done to yourselves? You disport yourselves as harlots! Vanity, pride, self-seeking, materialistic--virgins of Christ who are no longer virgins of Christ! Whatever shall become of you? You are not nuns, you are a miss--a misfortune to your vocation!” - Our Lady, December 28, 1976 

"My children, you do not learn from your past. It is pride and vanity that sets man away from his God. Life upon your earth is but a short duration for all. Think, My children, think while you have the time to think. Evaluate and re-evaluate your life. Cast aside the worthless, cast aside all that can only be kept upon your lifetime on earth. Are you storing any merits in Heaven for your entrance? Each and every one of you, My children, must come across the veil, the veil that will be taken from your eyes when you approach immortality.” - Our Lady, April 9, 1977 

"My child and My children, I must caution you not to bring dissension among the ranks of workers. Nothing constructive can come forth from vanity, pride, or avarice. My children, you are united as children of God in the light. My Mother has called you well, light bearers.” - Jesus, May 28, 1977 

St. Theresa - "My sisters, it is the will of God that you show no vanity in your habit. Therefore, you will cover your hair."
     Veronica - Now Theresa has a band, a white band, and her veil, her black veil covers it. She's pinning it now with what looks to be a clip, over a very stiff, white headpiece that covers her hair completely to her forehead, so that I don't see any hair at all--just her face. -
October 2, 1973 

"I have asked you to remove the worldly hat in representation of Our great sorrow for the offenses being given and the bad example being demonstrated in many of Our convents. The hair must not become evident as a source of vanity among Our nuns. Have great sorrow, My child, for many in the convents, by their bad example, have set many onto the road to perdition.” - Our Lady, December 24, 1973 

"Children of the world starving for the light and the truth, I am the Way. I am the Light, and My Church is the light for mankind now, even though My own pastors have darkened it by their actions and their avarice and their greed and their vanity and pride! Know that when they have given over My Church to the world, and as satan deludes them to unite all into a one-world religion and a one-world government, you are enslaved and it is the end!” - Jesus, April 2, 1977 

"Recognize the signs of the times, My children. The war is on. My children, it is much easier to close your heart and your ears to the truth. Your human nature forces you to flee from all that does not feed your vanity. You seek good feelings. But, My children, you cannot become blind to the truth. Recognize the signs of your times, the plagues that have been already sent upon you. The medicinal deterioration of your children's bodies was well planned by satan. It is a plague within your country; it is a plague within the world. Destroy the mind and you can leave the soul to be conquered.” - Our Lady, March 25, 1972 

"Lust and greed, avarice and vanity cloud the minds of men even in the highest places of rank in your world, in your government. Man has given himself to seeking pleasure, pleasures of the flesh that send many into hell . . . unbridled passion, debasement among men.” - Our Lady, March 18, 1977 

"My child, you will instruct those about you to send out all of the messages from Heaven. And you must now gather the information given to compile the conversations with My Son. I ask as your Mother to continue upon the Mission. Do not abandon Me and My Son as We try to save you.
     "The mores of the world are but vanity and foolishness, a temporal way of life. Beyond the veil is forever. Tomorrow could be forever for many.” - Our Lady,
May 30, 1981
