Seventy-seventh Visitation of Our Lady
August 27, 2005 Last Saturday of August Theriot, Louisiana
Claire Rose wrote:
Today is a beautiful day. The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming and the birds are singing. There is a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico named Katrina that is headed straight for the Gulf coast, possibly Louisiana. For several days Our Mother has said, over and over "One hour can make a difference. One hour can change things." Today again She said this several times. My husband blessed inside and outside of our home with Holy Water. Many pilgrims arrived early from far and near. Several called to see if we had called off the Rosary today. Our Mother asked us to proceed with the Day of Prayer for Priests as normal. We are blessed by the presence of three holy priests; two are here for the first time. A holy sister and two holy Brothers are with us. Everyone is concerned about the hurricane. Early this morning, as we watched the weather news the storm had already crossed over the southern part of Florida and was in the Gulf. Several of us saw the eye of the storm clearly shaped like a huge Heart. The Heart turned sideways toward Louisiana and became a silhouette of Our Blessed Mother holding a baby. Next, Our Mother was bent towards Louisiana Her Hands folded in prayer. About noon the phone rang. It was the husband of one of our brides who insisted that she come home immediately for she lives two and a half hours away. He said the storm seemed to be heading toward Theriot. He was afraid that his wife would be delayed by many people on the highway fleeing the storm. She made the decision to be obedient to her husband. Before she left we prayed a decade of the Rosary. Our Mother Appeared as we prayed. She was all in white. She was coming from the East, moving quickly toward the West. Following Her was a huge wave or wall of water. I shared this with those who were present. Pilgrims continued to arrive until 2 p.m.
At 1:45p.m, we gathered at the foot of the Priest's Cross with the children.
We begin with the Sign of the Cross and three 'Hail Mary's'. Our Mother is with us. She came in a strong breeze as we began the first 'Hail Mary.' Our Mother Spoke: "My beloved children, I thank you for loving me, for calling on Me. When you pray the "Hail Mary," you are calling Your Mother. I am always waiting to hear you call Me. When you call upon Me, it is music to My Ears, and My Heart leaps with joy because I love you! I am eager to help you. Do not be afraid, Your Mother is with you. Do not be afraid for I love you. I cover you with My Mantle, My Mantle of Peace and Protection. I love you! I love you! I love you! I hear voices calling to Me and I respond in Love. My children remember the little boy last month who prayed that his sister would come home. I hear the prayers of a little child in a special way. His sister has come home!
I thank you for coming today at My Request to pray for My beloved and precious priest sons. Continue to pray at this cross for my priest sons, and I will pray for all your needs. I love you! I love you! I love you! My little ones, I speak to you. I am calling many of you to become holy priests, holy sisters, and holy brothers. Listen for My Voice deep within your heart. I love you my little ones, more than you can ever know. I give to you My own Heart."
Our Mother is all in white. Again she holds out to us in both of Her Hands a Rosary of Light. Her Dress and Veil, as she moves, shimmer with different colors, soft rainbow colors, like the Aurora Borealis. Our Mother's Face is changing from Indian to African to Oriental to white.
"I am Mother of all My children. I love you all."
Our Mother then turns and looks at each one here. She is looking into each of our hearts. "Offer Me your heart. Give to Me your heart, My children. Within My own Hands I will carry your heart to My Son Jesus. Pray without ceasing from your heart. I love you! I love you! I love you!"
We thanked Our Mother and prayed three more 'Hail Mary's and a Glory Be. The little Indian Saint, Kateri Tekakwitha, accompanied Our Mother. There was a crown of flowers around her head. She had two long dark braids. She was kneeling in prayer near Our Mother's feet. One of the most vulnerable communities in my parish is a small island community of native American Indians who have a great devotion to the little Indian Saint.
Just after 2p.m. we went inside to begin the 20 decade Rosary for all of our priests. One of the pilgrims asked me if Kateri and Katrina (Hurricane) were the same name. I wondered if there was a connection. Both names come from Katherine. I blessed myself and all the rooms and pilgrims with Holy Water. Our Mother came as soon as we started to pray. She spoke:
"Announce My Presence! Open your hearts My children. Pray with all your hearts."
During the second Joyful Mystery, the Visitation
"O My Beloved children, O how I love you! I love you all! Each one of you is precious and special to Me. Thank you for coming even with all the confusion that is happening all around you. You are safe in My Heart.
My Beloved and Precious Priest Sons- I have called you here today My sons. I love you with all of My Heart. My Heart beats with joy as I accompany you this day- I carry each one of you in the Palm of My Hand.
Fr. Simon, My precious little one thank you for hearing the Confessions of my children. You are a blessing to them. I am with you always My precious son. My Son Jesus accompanies Me today as I visit you." (I saw a Big white Host. I saw Jesus' Sorrowful Face come from the Eucharist.)
"My beloved priest sons I love you. I love you. I love you. To the world you are a shepherd but to Me, your own Mother, you are My own little lambs. I carry you within My Arms. I place you inside of My Immaculate Heart, the only safe refuge for you. My Immaculate Heart is a refuge of Holy Love, a refuge from all the storms of life, the only safe place for My beloved priest sons. for My Immaculate Heart is within the Sacred Heart of My Beloved Son Jesus, Divine Love.
My priest sons, you are called and chosen, a higher calling than the calling of others. You are chosen and set apart to be living examples of Divine Love, living examples of My Beloved Son Jesus. In this small and unknown place I come especially for you my priest son. For it is through you, though you are broken & wounded vessels, it is through you that Our Church will be restored to holiness and wholeness. As this comes about My Immaculate Heart will Triumph over evil once and for all.
satan has caused division and disorder. This will end My children. Divine Order will return as Divine Love sweeps the earth. A Wave of Divine Love has begun to build a new and restored Church, a new and holy people, set apart, a new spotless Bride for My Beloved Son Jesus!
O My priest sons, all of My children, place My Son Jesus in a place of honor in your hearts. Let Him be the Center of your life.Make My Son Jesus the Center of your homes and families. Make my Son Jesus the Center of your churches, your parishes. O My priest sons and all my children, this is Divine Order!
My Son Jesus in Holy Eucharist should be the Center of all, your hearts, your souls, your homes, your families, your parishes. Clean up your souls and your lives My beloved ones. Repent of your sins. Stop fooling around! Go to a priest and make asincere confession.
Ask for My Help My children; I am here to help you. I am always here to help you. Call upon Your Mother. I am quick to respond to your call." I saw Our Lady of Prompt Succour, Patroness of New Orleans and Louisiana. Our Mother continued:"My Immaculate Heart awaits your call. O My little ones, if you only knew how much I love you, you would die of joy!"
Second Luminous Mystery, the Wedding Feast at Cana
Our Mother continued: "Open your hearts to Your Mother. I am quick to help you! My Son Jesus is the Key to Peace, the answer to all of your problems, all of them. There is nothing too great or too small for My Son to heal. I have called the most broken and the most wounded of My children to form an Army of Love to pray and offer sacrifice for My priest sons. O My Children hear My Call to you! Heed Your Mother's Call! If you will turn away from evil and turn back to My Son Jesus all that is good will be restored to you.
Divine Order is needed in your lives and in Our Church!"
Third Luminous Mystery, the Proclamation of the Kingdom
Our Mother continues: "Bend your stiff necks. Get down on your knees and plead with all your hearts for God's Mercy. Ask for healing. Ask for God's Blessing in humility.
Ask with the trust of a child's heart. Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you shall find.
Knock and the door will be opened unto you.
I am with you My children. I shall never abandon you. Pray. Pray. Pray. Pray. And Pray more! God loves a truly repentant sinner. Don't say one thing and do another. O My children I love you so much.
My heart grieves over you." (I saw a gold light bright, brighter than the sun!) Our Mother continued: "God never sleeps. There is no darkness too dark to come out of. Our Father desires to shed His Light upon you even into the darkest corners of your lives. The confessional door is the door to My Son's Heart, His Heart of Mercy and of Compassion. And there through My priest son, a human instrument, My Son Jesus welcomes you! His Precious and Divine Blood washes over you, to wash away your sins.
Come, My priest sons & all My children. Come! Forgiveness, Mercy and Compassion are all yours for the asking. There is nocost!
Come. The price of your salvation has already been paid in full by your Savior, My Son Jesus."
Fifth Luminous Mystery, the Last Supper, the institution of the Eucharist
Our Mother continues:
"Receive Him into your heart and soul, into your bodies. Receive Him with a clean heart, a clean soul. O My own beloved children consider what My Son suffered for your salvation. How can you keep away from His Love? He desires a deeper and deeper Union with each one of you."
Tears of gold light are falling from Our Mother's Eyes.
I again see Our Mother as Indian, African, Oriental and other races. "I am Mother of All."
First Sorrowful Mystery, the Agony in the Garden
"O My children in this hour of concern, I am with you. I am praying with you and for you. O My children the cup of your inequities has run over. Yet God's Mercy is yours for the asking.
His Mercy is pouring out over you like a floodgate that has no end.
This time of Mercy has been extended My Children through Fasting & Prayer.
The time of your chastisement has also been shortened or none of you would survive.
O My children the greatest trials & suffering are ahead of you. Today I come to you in love. I come to you in Peace. I come to bring you Love & Peace for your very survival My little ones! I love you. I love you. I love you.
The sins of the nations are great. O My little ones turn to Our Father. Turn to Our Creator while it is still today. My Son Jesus awaits your response. Do not be afraid. All pardon is offered you in love. All that you need is being offered to you for free.
Come. Come home My treasured children. Come home to My Son Jesus. Do not walk away from My Son or you will be lost, lost forever! A flood of Mercy showers upon you today My own children. A floodgate of Divine Love is open here, never to be closed. Surrender your wills to Our God. Surrender your wills, your hearts, your souls, your mind. Surrender ALL to the Most Blessed Trinity. Be renewed and made whole and holy once again. One hour can change things. ONE HOUR CAN CHANGE THINGS! One hour can turn the tide of evil.
I again ask for One Hour of Adoration of the Most Holy Blessed Sacrament each week, in every parish for holy Vocations to the Holy Priesthood. I accompany you on this journey My precious children.
I am with you each step you make. I hold you by the hand to guide you. Place your total trust in My Son Jesus. Many storms have been averted, many wars stopped because you pray from your hearts. I love you My children. Thank you for coming today to pray together with your Mother. I honor your prayer. I carry your petitions to My Son Jesus. Some of you have made a long journey to be here. I will see you all safely home. I love you.
I love you. Do not be afraid. You are covered by My Mantle of Protection. I have chosen this place long ago with my Son Jesus. I am here in obedience to Him, to Our Father and to my Beloved Spouse The Holy Spirit. I LOVE YOU! Love one another as I love you, Lady of the Bayou,
Mother of Divine Love, Patroness of Priests"
On Saturday night and again on Sunday morning the weather news said that my parish, Terrebonne and my community, Theriot was at the cross-hairs of the bullet, directly at the center of the predicted path of Hurricane Katrina. My community and parish were put under mandatory evacuation. After Holy Mass we left to go west like thousands of others. We were blessed because we had a safe place to go at the home of one of our consecrated brides who lives 4 hours from here. Because of the traffic it took us 8 hours to drive there. The hurricane made a slight turn to the east before coming ashore so the worse winds missed Theriot. We were about 60 or more miles from the highest winds and because we were on the west side of the eye of the storm we had no water. Thanks be to God. We were able to return to our parish on Monday evening. A few roof shingles flew off of our house and we were without power for several days so we lost food, but we are o.k. One of our daughters lost the roof of her house and some of the contents. Our grandson, who worked in ICU as an RN was trapped with several hundred patients and staff at Charity Hospital in the middle of New Orleans. Prayers, Our Mother's Love and the Divine Mercy and Love of Jesus saved many, many lives including my grandson's. Thank you to everyone who prayed or responded in any way to help those in need. My grandson's unit was the first group to be rescued at exactly 3pm on Friday, Sept. 2nd. In reflection of Our Mother's words, "One hour can make a difference, one hour can change things. " I realize that there are two meanings to this. Our Mother was speaking to me both spiritually and in a physical sense. I had spoken twice to my grandson after noon on that Friday. The hospital was still surrounded by deep water. They had been without power since Monday. It was sweltering hot. They had no water, food or plumbing. Many patients had died. Some of the staff were breaking down. They felt abandoned. Each day since Tuesday they had been told they would be rescued and each day no one came for them. Street gangs had broken into the hospital and at gunpoint, demanded their food, water and medicine. That part of their awful situation had been brought under control on the Thursday evening. The phone on his unit, by some miracle, worked! I spoke to him on the Thursday night from my Spiritual Director's house. I encouraged him to pray and hold on that help was on the way. He sounded hopeless and said the rescue was lies and not to believe the news. On Friday late morning I came home. I had just heard on the radio that President Bush was coming to New Orleans that afternoon. He was going to meet at the airport with the Governor of Louisiana and the Mayor of New Orleans. When I got home my house phone was dead. My cell phone had not worked in 5 days and did not work for several days after, but by God's Grace I was allowed to call him twice. The first call he told me that he was going to die there, that they were all going to die there. I let him talk and cry. I said it was o.k. to cry. They needed water. Why couldn't they bring water? He said again that he was going to die there! I said, "STOP! YOU ARE NOT GOING TO DIE THERE! THE BLESSED MOTHER PROMISED ME THAT YOU WOULD BE ALRIGHT! YOU ARE GOING TO BE RESCUED SOON! PRAY THE HAIL MARY!" He got very quiet and had to hang up. I felt so helpless yet felt driven to 'do something!' With water, perhaps they could pass another night. Who could I call? I had no phone numbers. My son said call the local TV station. I did. They called one of my local representatives who immediately called the Governor's office while I was on the phone. I begged that they send water immediately to Charity Hospital. I called my grandson to tell him what had happened and that the Governor would send water, water was coming! As I was speaking to him I saw on TV this caravan of help, miles long just about to cross the Mississippi River Bridge into New Orleans a few blocks from the hospital where my grandson and many others were trapped. I told him what I was seeing. "O Maw Maw," he said, "the news people are lying, it's not true! Are you seeing this with your own eyes?" I said, "YES! They are coming over the River, over the bridge. Go look out of the windows, you will see them yourself!" He said, "I believe YOU Maw Maw! What kind of help is coming?" As I spoke to him I could see and hear 'Military help, medical help, food.' I let him hear the TV. He asked, "What about water, boats?" At that moment the TV announcer said, "Water, tanks of water, boats!" He heard it at the same time that I did. I saw all these things crossing the River Bridge as we talked. I heard hope and excitement in his voice. I told him that prayers from all around the world were being offered for them and that very soon he would be out of there. All of this happened in less that one hour! At exactly 3pm Friday, Sept. 2nd, my grandson's unit was the first taken out of the hospital, brought to the airport and flown to San Antonio, Texas. Divine Mercy! One hour! Thank you Jesus with all my heart!

August 27, 2005 Priest's Saturday In California
Received by a bride from another area, Lin
I am in California for this last Saturday. Our Lady has been with me since early morning. I was able to go to Holy Mass this morning. It is a beautiful day here. The morning fog burned off early and we have beautiful sunshine. Not too hot with a mild coastal breeze keeping things cool. Most grateful for the breeze. I blessed the whole house with Holy Water. Pilgrims started coming around 1:30 p.m. to put petitions in the prayer box. I invited all the Holy Angels and dear Saints and the Souls being made holy in Purgatory to pray with us and for us for all the priests of the world. I then invited Our Lady under all Her Titles to pray with us and for us for all the priests of the world. Around 2:00 p.m. we started the beginning prayers and then the 20-decade Rosary for Priests. Our Lady says, "Thank you My daughter for your perseverance. Thank you for writing as I have asked!"

From the Eucharist extend golden white rays. They go out to all of us. At the fifth Joyful Mystery, the Finding of the child Jesus in the Temple

At the fourth Luminous Mystery, the Transfiguration of Jesus

Our Lady of Guadalupe is here. She is most beautiful. She prays with us. Now Our Lady of Lourdes is with us, all in white with a blue sash around Her waist and on Her Feet are yellow roses. She is so beautiful. Her Eyes seem to encompass all of us. A place of pure love!
