#378 – THE CONVENTS, PART 1
"You cannot be half a saint; you must be a whole saint or no saint at all." - St. Theresa the Little Flower
PUT MATTERS RIGHT IN YOUR
St. Theresa - "My sisters, will you not listen to my cautioning you of the days ahead? You are following the evil masters."
Veronica - Now Theresa has walked over. And she has raised her hand, and she's pointing that way. She's saying:
St. Theresa - "The doors are closed, but the Father sees beyond them. You will now put matters right in your convent." - August 15, 1972
PRAY TO STRENGTHEN THE CONVENTS AND
"Jesus is sad. Satan attacks Our hearts by destroying Our children. This is the beginning of the sorrows. Pray! Pray to strengthen the convents and seminaries from the attacks from within." - Our Lady, September 14, 1970
NUNS MUST RETURN TO LONG HABITS
St. Theresa -"Come out of the darkness, my sisters. You have been misled. Do not follow the fashions of your world. There is no fashion in Heaven. Jesus never changes. There is great punishment ahead for those who follow the world. Do not leave when you are discouraged by those who satan has sent into your convents. Stand forth as an example of purity and godliness. You will not be cast aside by your God, as you will by man, as you stand to defend your God. Pick up your cross and carry it.
"You will return the habit to the floor."
Veronica - Over to the right side of the flagpole there's a nun. She's smiling. She has on this large white hat, with like--has wings on the side. Oh, she thinks--the nun thinks it's very funny that I called it "wings." Catherine! It's Catherine, Catherine Labouré.
St. Catherine Labouré - "When you accept a change that offends your God, you will be discontinued. Confusion, confusion! All about us we see confusion. Pray to the Holy Spirit that you may receive the light." - November 20, 1972
ABOMINATIONS IN THE CONVENTS
"I gave my life upon earth as a child. My little way was a way of love. True love seeks no self-gratification, but the well-being of the beloved. It is only in giving that you shall receive.
"All must now retire from your world that has been given to satan. You will not have both. You must now pick up the cross and carry it. Only in this way will you stay on the road. It is a narrow road, and when you leave, it is difficult to find the way back.
"The direction to the Kingdom has been given to you all the duration of life on your earth. It is a simple plan of love. You do not offend and hurt those you love; so why have you chosen to offend and hurt Jesus and our Mother, Mary?
"I have watched with my sisters the abominations in the convents. Why have they chosen to follow as foolish maidens the modes of an evil world? They do not pray; therefore, they have become blinded. How many have abandoned Jesus for the love of the world! What shall the Father do, when they enter beyond the veil, with them?
"Satan has set upon the world a mode of fashion. It is a destructive way of life. The convents shall not follow the fashions of the world. The men of God shall not follow the fashions of the world." - St. Theresa, March 25, 1973
MEND YOUR WAYS
St. Theresa - "My sisters on earth, you must learn discipline. You have been led astray and have accepted satan's plan in your world. You must not follow the fashions of satan."
Veronica - Beyond Our Lady many, many nuns are appearing. They are dressed in different habits. They are all dressed in habits that reach to their feet. In fact, I can only see their dark shoes from beneath the skirts. Now the nun who has the hat with the large white wings is coming forward. It's Catherine. And Catherine also has placed out her hand near Theresa. And Catherine is talking with Our Lady, and Our Lady has nodded Her head. And Catherine is speaking:
St. Catherine Labouré - "I cannot understand the lack of discipline in your orders, my sisters. You have cast aside your vows. You have traded your spirit. What can you expect in eternity but damnation? You have closed your hearts and your eyes to the truth. You have been warned by the Eternal Father and the Queen of Heaven countless times. You will listen now, or lose the gift of eternal happiness. You will not reach the highest pinnacle of sainthood unless you mend your ways now." - October 2, 1972
BY THEIR HEARTS
"It has been made known to you many times that there are many offenses being committed in the convents. However, our warnings are falling on deafened ears. You try, and I tried in my life on earth, to imitate Our Lady. But now Our Lady cries, for so many are mocking Her. So many are going now down the road to perdition by following the modes of a world that has been given to satan.
"Suffering--so few care to suffer or carry their crosses. It is much easier to accept the ways of the world. But in the final outcome you lose so much.
"My sisters, you must place your skirts down to the floor, for you offend Our Lady, and the Father looks with critical eye upon your actions. You must retire from the world and show by good example. Then many more sisters will enter into the convents if you give them good example.
"All mothers of the houses in the convents must watch who enters their homes, for satan has placed many within the convents to destroy them. Those who enter should not be counted by their intelligence, but by their hearts; for the Father has not chosen those of great intelligence and worldly acclaim to do His will. He knows, and He looks into your hearts." - St. Theresa, May 30, 1973
VOCATIONS ARE NEEDED
"You will all pray much that the convents will not be empty. True vocations are needed." - Our Lady, June 16, 1973
DO NOT ALLOW THE WORLD TO ENTER
"There has been little change in my convents. I am very saddened at what we can see beyond the doors. My sisters, do not allow the world to enter into my convents. So many good sisters are needed for fine example. I stand with our Mother and look into many convents of the world. I do not recognize what goes on there. I know it offends the Father much.
"You must not follow the ways of the world. You must restore the habit and be an example, a good example to other sisters of the world. There are far too many who have given up the work for the Father. This saddens all Heaven. Please, my sisters, do not leave. Remain and fight the good battle for the Father. Bring others into the convents, but you must pull out the weeds and be very careful who will enter into the convent, for satan has set many among you to destroy the good work." - St. Theresa, August 21, 1973
"MY SISTERS, YOU HAVE BEEN MISLED"
"My sisters, you have paid no heed to my words. You are dressing yourselves like pagans. The convents will be empty. Whatever shall we do for example? You must not follow the modes of the world. My sisters, you have been misled. Return to your habits. None will enter your convents with true vocation with the example you set now upon yourselves and the world.
"Is it because you have lost the love of your God? Do you not feel great honor for the symbol of your being a true spouse of your God? Half-hearted vocations, sinfulness within the convents! O woe, my sisters, whatever will become of you now? Better that you wear the true habit and sign of dedication than to burn in the fires of hell.
"You will not bring true postulants into the convents by your example now. You walk in darkness, my sisters. Pray for the light, or your convents will be closed. This is the plan of the enemy of God. You must take yourselves from the world and worldly pursuits." - St. Theresa, September 13, 1973
RETURN TO A LIFE OF MORTIFICATION
"My sisters of the convents, you must return to a life of mortification and self-privation. You have succumbed to the lures of satan, loving more the pleasures of worldly flesh than the ecstasies that lie beyond the veil when you pass over. Your lives must return to the rule, the strict rule of self-discipline. Your example is very poor to the children. Your actions have not gone by unnoticed by the Father. You will be called to task for your bad example." - St. Theresa, October 2, 1973
"YOU HAVE PREFERRED TO FOLLOW THE WAYS OF
St. Theresa - "Veronica, they have not lowered their skirts. This offends the Father greatly. Their hearts are hardened to the truth. Modesty and chastity! They have lost their way. They go into deep darkness.
"Oh, my poor sisters! Why have you gone on this foolish road? You have joined, and united yourselves with the world. But the world has now been given to satan. Turn back, for you shall not enter the Kingdom on your present road. You must bring modesty back to my convents. Sacrifice! You do not need to stuff yourselves with the pleasures of the world.
"My sisters, what has happened to the black fast?"
Veronica - I'm looking now into a large room. It's not very well decorated, but I can see the nuns sitting at the table. It must be a convent. It's a long table. But I believe they're nuns from their veils, but they have on regular dresses. Some have on a gray, a deep gray dress with short sleeves. And I can see their stockings and their shoes. Their shoes look like oxfords, but they're, they look very modern. But Theresa now is pointing over, and she's shaking her finger, like this. And Theresa is now saying:
St. Theresa - "My sisters, you offend the Father and you bring great punishment upon yourselves. Your example has been very poor. The children are being misled by your actions. They no longer give you your due honor and respect. But this you promote of your free will. You have preferred to follow the ways of the world. You must return now to the rule or you will not be able to enter the Kingdom." - St. Theresa, December 7, 1973
DO NOT LEAVE
"Do not leave when you are discouraged by those who satan has sent into your convents. Stand forth as an example of purity and godliness. You will not be cast aside by your God, as you will by man, as you stand to defend your God. Pick up your cross and carry it." - St. Theresa, November 20, 1972
MOST DISPLEASED AT THE EXAMPLE
Veronica - Our Lady said that the Father is most displeased at the example being given by many of His dedicated. Priests in the House of God shall dress and act as priests. Nuns in the convents shall conduct themselves not as foolish maidens, but as pillars of chastity. - May 22, 1974
ALL MANNER OF ABERRATIONS
"My child, all manner of aberrations are being committed in the convents. Please warn my sisters they offend God very much. Their example is very poor. There will be not many who enter the convents with this poor example. This hurts the heart of our good Jesus very much, Veronica. They must have a firm example of discipline and chastity, piety." - St. Theresa, October 2, 1974
"THE EXTERNAL TRAPPINGS MEAN
St. Theresa - "Veronica, my sister, you must not be held back by fear and doubt. Work with great haste to reach my brothers and sisters. We are much grieved, they do not dress properly. Their example is poor and the convents are empty. How sad we are here in Heaven! Where shall we find sisters to guide the sheep?
Veronica - Now behind Theresa there are a lot of people coming down. They're all nuns; I know they're nuns, because they're dressed in long dresses. And behind them are men. They have on brown habits with cord around their waist, and I know they're Franciscan brothers because of the way they're dressed. And they have on sandals.
Now Our Lady is smiling.
Our Lady - "My child, We do not see much of this upon your world now. Out of sight, out of mind. The external trappings mean much. You must cover yourselves with good example." - November 23, 1974
"Poverty! Poverty, my children--have you forgotten the need for poverty? There were vows, My children, of piety and poverty. Have they been cast aside now to follow the evil mode of modernism?" - St. Theresa, May 17, 1975
"Know now, my brothers and sisters of religious orders, you will be mocked, you will be scorned, but you will please the Eternal Father and receive your reward in the Kingdom." - St. Francis, May 28, 1975
"THEY MUST BE STRENGTHENED IN
Our Lady - "You must, My child, hasten to gather your sisters. They must be strengthened in their Faith. They must not succumb to the errors that abound now in the houses of God throughout the world--in the seminaries and the convents, My child.
"The antichrist forces of the agents from hell are out now in great numbers invading Our convents and seminaries, My child. You must hasten to reach your pastors with the message."
Veronica - Now it's growing quite dark. I can't see the nuns. Oh, but now one of the nuns is raising her hand. Oh, it's Saint Theresa. I recognize her now. Oh!
St. Theresa - "Veronica, there's great discord in the convents. You must encourage them by prayer.
"Tell my sisters not to fall into the errors of the world. They must not join the world, or they will be lost to us here in Heaven. They must place the garments of holiness upon themselves--bring their habits to the floor.
"All signs of worldliness must be removed from their persons, for when they join the world, they will no longer be brides of the Christ.
"If a bride of Christ gives herself without change to the world, she will find it difficult to return and accept the truth, for she will become blinded. Please pray, my sisters and brothers, for those who are losing the way." - July 25, 1975
