#604 - IDLE TALK
"But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall render an account for it in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned." - St. Matthew 12: 36-37
THEY WILL NOT RECOVERY SOULS WITH IDLE TALK
"My children, you have all looked for the easy road to My Son's Kingdom. The road to Heaven is not a road of acceptance of what pampers and you find is satisfying to your worldly being. You must deny yourself of these enticements which have been created by satan. I look upon your world and have found that sin has become a way of life with you. Come out of the darkness!
"The hope that you can offer to those who have been led astray is the knowledge that when the Father forgives, He forgets. He does not wish that one of His children be given to satan. Your world and leaders--and yes, those in My Son's House--have forgotten the value of prayer. They will not recover and ransom souls with idle talk. They must now go down on their knees and make atonement for their offenses against their God, starve their bodies of the demons that they have allowed to enter upon them.
"Shall My Son find even a small flicker of light, of faith, in the hearts of His children when He returns? Woe unto an unrepentant generation! The numbers counted will be in the few." - Our Lady, November 20, 1972
MORE TIME IN
PRAYER, LESS IDLE TALK
"My children, the Father will chastise those He loves. We do not set any individual down to judge another. We ask you to admonish, My child, and then pray; for the Father will be always the final judge. As Our messenger, you will bring Our words to the heads, the high priests of My Son's House. That is all We ask of you, with prayer.
"The time has come for all high priests in My Son's House to make amends and set the House to right. You will spend more time in prayer and less idle talk on the winds. I have given you the plan for the days ahead. As such, you have been prepared and now must act upon it." - Our Lady, August 14, 1972
"My Son's House is being subverted from within. The forces of evil are gathering. There are many groups of secret who make plans to enter upon the Seat of Peter. They have laid the groundwork for this entrance in well-planned secret. But they do not know that they are only allowed this for ultimate reversal to good. Man, of his free will, will bring many trials upon himself. This will be allowed by the Father.
"All who have received the light will not enter upon the wide road. All who have received the light will pray and do penance for those who are upon the wide road. The forces of satan are now bringing deep darkness into My Son's House and the world. Your times are now far worse than the time of Noe or
"My Son's representatives do not read the Book of life. Instead We find that they are bringing into their minds the evils of the world of satan. You cannot gain this world on earth and enter into the Kingdom. There is no bargaining.
"We see many sitting in conference in My Son's House, talking idle words that are destructive and not constructive. Better they get down on their knees now and pray, do penance, strip their bodies, starve out the demons that have entered them." - Our Lady, September 28, 1972
"YOU DO NOT
FIGHT THE WAR OF THE SPIRITS WITH IDLE WORDS"
"Our hearts are torn by the many who choose of free will to cast aside the graces given by the Father. Many have accepted the false maxims of humanism, modernism, and pure satanism. Delusion! Delusion allowed by the Father for the separation of the sheep from the goats. Weep not, My child, for those who fall into hell, for they will have had every opportunity with their eyes open to stay on the path to the Kingdom.
"Prayer, atonement, and sacrifice, a constant vigil of prayer in your country: that is all the direction you will need. You do not fight the war of the spirits with idle words cast on the winds, bargaining for pieces of silver with souls, seeking self-glory and worldly honors, temporary in your state of life. You bargain your souls for your temporary existence and lose eternity!" - Our Lady, February 1, 1973
"YOU DO NOT
HAVE THE TIME NOW IN IDLE TALK"
"You must warn the world now that too many years were wasted in speculation when I gave the warnings many years ago. You do not have the time now in idle talk or speculation. There are many agents of hell now. They have entrenched themselves in every walk of your life: your schools, your government, and even they walk in the holy House of God. However, the Father permits this war. This war is one of the spirits. It is far greater a war than man could ever fight upon earth with humans; for now, My children, you are at war with the unseen world.
"Do not deny the fact that there is an unseen world about you. When you accept this fact, you can fight it. Satan can enter upon and claim and make an agent any human being who has fallen far from grace, be it a man, a woman, or a child. Therefore, recognize this fact, and disassociate yourselves from temptations and the ways of error set forth by these agents of satan. Recognize the faces of evil about you. Recognize the wolves in sheep's clothing." - Our Lady, May 30, 1973
"DO NOT WASTE
"My child, in the final cleansing many will be removed from the earth. Many good will suffer with the bad, but the good will be triumphant beyond the veil. Learn, My children, the value of suffering for the sanctification of your souls and the souls of those you love.
"Do not waste your time now, the time left in earth-time, in idle talk and idle pursuits governed by pleasures of the flesh. Awaken and shout from the rooftops, for the time grows short! My children, you must all go forward as disciples of My Son. Each holds a great responsibility to his brother." - Our Lady, June 16, 1973
Veronica - Now it is growing very--the light seems to be--it is growing very dark. And Our Lady now is going over to the right side of the flagpole. And She is raising Her Rosary now. I can't see Jacinta any more. It's as though she has just gone back into the sky. And She is raising Her Rosary high above Her head. Now the Rosary is forming--oh, Her white Rosary is turning blue, and it is forming a "G" clef. Oh, it's the "G" clef in the picture. Our Lady said:
Our Lady - "This was My sign to you of the power of My beads of prayer. You will use these instead of idle words. This direction I give to the high priests of My Son's House. You have abandoned prayers for the love of the world. You have accepted false teachings of humanism and have developed a destroying love for the material. Now you will make an about face and return to the proper teachings. Prayer will recover you from the darkness into which you have led yourselves and others." - December 30, 1972
HIS FINAL BATTLE
"My child, I have cautioned you in the past and I repeat Myself for your welfare and the continued progress of your work, your mission from Heaven, to close your ears to those who seek to destroy the
"TOO MUCH IDLE
Veronica - I'm sorry. Our Lady says that those on the sacred grounds must stop this unnecessary talking. I repeat: Our Lady said, directs that you on the sacred grounds, you will have to stop the disruptions, especially within the ropes. Our Lady said--Our Lady said there must be no disruptions within the circle. There is too much idle chatter.
Now you must understand the sacred presence of Our Lady and Jesus. Our Lady told me to explain this in Her own words. You are not showing good example when you do not recognize the presence of Our Lady and Jesus and conduct worldly talking in Their presence. You are to conduct yourself with prayers of atonement.
Our Lady - "My child, it hurts Me deeply to have to admonish those upon My sacred grounds, but their example will be followed by others.
"Understand, My child, the nature of the sacred grounds and My Shrine. I have come here as a Mediatrix between God and man to guide you through the trials which lie ahead. All who follow My direction must become humble in spirit and divest themselves of all desire for worldly accomplishments." - August 21, 1973
HAND OF YOUR
GOD IS DESCENDING
"My children, the hand of your God is descending. With patience the Eternal Father watches, never wishing that even one be lost to Him. The sheep are scattering; the shepherds have fallen asleep. And now, in this crucial hour, new shepherds will come forward. They will be of humble beginnings, with great humility and love of their God.
"O My children, how long can you expect a reprieve? Far beyond what man has ever conceived in his human mind will he experience the Ball hurtling down upon earth, and earth shall be planet struck!
"My children, the scoffers will multiply; those who have gained worldly knowledge and influence will turn away.
"It is not with idle talk or Scripture that the word has gone out to mankind that all of your power gained upon earth will be nothing; all of your wealth stored upon earth will be nothing! And I assure you in truth, it will be easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye than for a rich man to enter into the
NO TIME FOR
"You will not fully understand the ways of the Father in accomplishing the salvation of many souls of His children. I have stressed many times in the past that all will be tried and tested. Prepare to do full battle with satan. The strength necessary for your mission will be given to you.
"You have experienced a major attack from satan to stop the good work. But as We knew, this you would overcome.
"You will omit all unnecessary associates from your immediate work. You do not have the time left for idle talk and entertaining. The message must go in great haste throughout the world.
"We expected, My child, for you to fall into many pitfalls. Our warnings are given, but many go unheeded. However, all evil is never triumphant. The Father shall turn all evil to good.
"Man is carried away by his intellect and emotions. He would find more strength in trial in prayer." - Our Lady, March 18, 1973
"IDLE TALK WILL
GET YOU NOWHERE"
Veronica - I see a great room, a large room. It's filled with people; they're all talking--it's like a mass confusion of sound. There is much dissension and arguments going on. Now Our Lady is coming down and pointing, as She leads me into the room. I'm going further into the room with Our Lady and She's pointing over with Her hand.
Our Lady - "See, My child, the start of destruction in My Son's House! Talk, talk, talk--to destruction. More prayer, My children! Pray yourselves out of the darkness. Idle talk will get you nowhere. Pray, My children! Return to your life of discipline. You have forgotten the value of prayer. Satan cannot stay where there is prayer, nor can his agents.
"My child, you will shout it from the rooftops. Make it known to Our clergy that they are being misled. They must pray; they must return to their discipline. They are misleading Our flock. Our sheep are wandering. O woe, woe! Whatever shall you do when the Chastisement comes upon you?" - November 20, 1974
TALK OF THE
"My child, you will continue upon your mission. Do not concern yourself of the idle chatter and talk of the deceivers. It would be of great and constructive usage to eliminate all negative obstructions, My child. You understand.
"Naturally, My child, in this battle against satan, his agents will multiply and attack. Recognize the faces of evil about you, My child. For those who have faith, no explanation is necessary; for those without faith, My child, there is no explanation.
"Pray a constant vigilance of prayer. Have pity upon your bishops, for many now have gone onto the road to perdition." - Jesus, February 1, 1977
NO TIME FOR
"My child, you will hasten in your mission. I advise you now to spend less time with worldly associates. You must retire from the world. Bar your doors to all but your family, your immediate family and close workers. There is no time, My child, now for idle chatter or sociability. All must be now for the honor and glory of your God and the repatriation of all souls within the power given from God to all who will give themselves as victims to the merciful heart of the Eternal Father.
"As disciples of the latter days, My children, much shall be asked of you, but I assure you: all that you give in faith and charity shall be returned to you threefold.
"I ask you not to judge your brother or sister but to counsel them. Permissiveness is not accepted in the redemption of souls. It is one thing, My children, to maintain discipline, and another to become lackadaisical and going along like ducks in water, letting everything roll off your backs, neither caring nor searching for the truth. Many of My pastors, the leaders in My House, My Church upon earth, have joined the groups of the ducks. And I must say that many are goats now, My children; and I assure you We are busy now from Heaven separating the sheep from the goats." - Jesus, June 1, 1978
TOO MANY YEARS
"Too many years have been wasted on earth in idle talk. Penance, atonement, and the rules of discipline have been cast aside, weakening the souls and opening the door for the entrance of the evil spirits." - Our Lady, April 14, 1973
GOLDEN RULE OF SILENCE
"You, My child, will now retire from the world, and in doing that, your tongue must also learn to be quiet. Therefore, you will gain more graces by accepting unjust opinion for your self-mortification. We have found, My child, that you have been in the habit of losing your temper. Therefore, We now place you in the rule of silence. You will now only speak . . . [Segment missing from tape.] in the human state. You, My child, must practice the golden rule of silence when under pressure and discord.
"When the vipers of satan are sent forth from the mouths of others, you do not wish to join them with the tainting of your soul by allowing them to enter you and come out again. It is not what goes in, My child, that will destroy you or your soul; it is what comes out. Therefore, speak only holy words. Speak only pure and holy conversation. If this cannot be accomplished, you will then observe the strict rule of silence. Practice this, My child, and you will find it becoming a way of life to you." - Our Lady, September 13, 1973
YOURSELF TO LESS WORLDLY CONVERSATION"
"As an instrument of Heaven, you have accepted a consecration to the Father for the remainder of your earthly life. You will meet with much opposition. All that you do, you will do for the Father and give little care for the opinion of man. Theresa, your sister, will guide you along the path, as you will learn the necessity of having a true thirst for souls.
"Forsaking all others, you will submit your self and your will to the Father as an instrument for Heaven. I would advise you, My child, to remain close to your home and restrict yourself to less worldly conversation. Retire more into a life of prayer when you are not given to your Scripture writing.
"Your mission will be accomplished. You will work with perseverance. The Father will not give you more than you can accomplish at this time." - Our Lady, March 18, 1974
TALK WHICH IS DESTRUCTIVE
"You will be measured by the extent of your sin. The degree of punishment upon your country and the world will be held in measure by the extent of man's sin and acts and commissions of folly against his God and the laws of the Eternal Father.
"A wise soul knows the true meaning of saving. Prayer, sacrifice, atonement are your measure for recovery. There is much talk going upon the winds, talk which is destructive and not constructive. This We find in the holy House of God. Better they turn now, go down on their knees, and beg forgiveness for their offenses against their God. Rank shall not spare the wicked. Remember Luciel: he was cast from the eternal Kingdom. All who turn their backs on the commands of the Eternal Father will join Luciel in his dark world." - Our Lady, October 6, 1972
