Today we celebrate the 12th year of Jesus' Life on earth. Pilgrims began to arrive about 10:30 a.m. I asked my husband to bless inside & around the outside of our house with Holy Water. It was a beautiful day, very cold but sunny. I have been ill all week & felt O.K. but very weak. At 1 p.m. everyone began to sing hymns & Christmas Carols. Our Mother loves to hear us singing to Jesus! At 1:40 a few little children gathered in my room to pray Hail Mary's.Our Mother came in a silvery blue dress & veil. A shower of blue roses was falling from Her Hands over the children. Our Mother thanked them for coming and for praying. She said that She loved them and that they would receive many graces today. At 2 p.m. Shirley, Leslie Therese` & I went out to begin the Rosary for priests. Among the pilgrims gathered were one priest, one holy nun and one religious brother from Missouri. I blessed everyone with Holy Water in obedience to Our Mother. I had been feeling that today's Visitation would be different but I was totally unprepared for all that happened. As we began the Rosary for Priests Our Mother asked me to announce that She was present. The first thing I saw was beautiful doors. I thought of the Jubliee Doors at St. Peters in Rome. Then I thought "it's the Doors of Heaven!" These Doors were encrusted with beautiful jewels, but not like any jewels from the earth, more like water drops reflecting colors and lights. The colors and light glistening were not of earth. I cannot describe. The doors opened outward, toward me and just in front of me suddenly was standing The Holy Family. Our Mother and St. Joseph with the Child Jesus between Them. Jesus was about twelve years old. No one spoke. Then The Holy Blessed Trinity just floated downward and hovered above where the Holy Family were. Our Father and Jesus were seated on Thrones. Jesus was on Our Father's right. The Holy Spirit in the form of a White Dove hovered between Them. Surrounding Them all were multitudes of Holy Angels and Saints, like layers & layers as far as there was distance. I know that I do a poor job of describing this. I understood that a door has opened between Heaven and earth and that Heaven has come down to earth. I saw this with my eyes open and closed. I was enraptured, absorbed in total Love. I thought of the priests and just gave them all to Jesus and Our Mother Mary. In the deepest core of my soul, I could see my own little heart just floating in the air and within it all the priests of the whole world. I was a little puzzled as how they could all fit in such a little space as my heart. I am so weak, how can this be? I want to love them all & hold them in my heart, but I am much too weak & small. Our Mother knew my heart & thoughts. She said, "Your weakness is My Strength. You must be an empty vessel before I can use you. I love you." She has been speaking to me about stripping my 'house' and has said several times, "Your house will soon be empty." Somehow my house is my heart. She is teaching me more & more to empty my heart & soul of earthly things and I don't mean material things. Funny thing is I thought Our Mother had done that over 10 years ago. I guess I'm real slow or She's going deeper into my spiritual closets. There are those of you who will understand this & those who won't. If you don't, then don't let it worry you. It's just another small step in my spiritual journey. Our Mother encourages me to share this so you will know how imperfect a vessel She has chosen for this little job. Any one of you reading this could have done much better than I have. Third Joyful Mystery The Nativity Our Mother speaks to the priest who is present. "My Precious and beloved -----, I love you My own little lamb. I have called you from long ago. I chose you and you responded with a holy 'yes.' I love you. Thank My Son, Jesus for your healing. I love you. Your strength shall be renewed like the wings of an eagle. Thank you for responding to My Call, My own little son. I love you. Share your healing with your brother priests. Your Mother." "This is My 21st Visitation to you here My Sons, My Beloved Priest Sons. Where are you? Where are you? I call and call..." "My Precious and Most Beloved Children, Today We celebrate the 12th year in the Life of My Son Jesus, the year He was lost from Joseph and I and after 3 days we found Him in the Temple teaching the elders of the Church. He was filled with Wisdom and Grace. Found in the Temple after being hidden from Us for 3 days." I thought of how this must have hurt Our Mother and St. Joseph. Then I thought of the 3 days when Jesus had Died and the Pain of Our Mother. Then I thought of 3 days of darkness, of unknowing. Our Mother spoke again, "He has given you His All. His Heart. His very Life. He is still to be found in the Golden Tabernacle, in the Temple. His Body. His Blood. His Soul. His Divinity. Fully Present, waiting, waiting ALWAYS for you ALL. My Son Jesus has left Himself TOTALLY to you all through the hands and heart of your priests. I call you here My children to pray for My priest sons. Today is a special day of much Grace. More Grace is being showered upon you than you can ever comprehend. Today is the 11th Anniversary of the 1st Last Saturday where only 2 were present and I came. I love you My beloved children. I hear all the petitions and prayers of your hearts and souls. I am closer to you today than I have ever been. I enclose each of you and your families in My Immaculate Heart." First Sorrowful Mystery The Agony in the Garden. "I hear your prayers for Our priests. I take your prayers and requests to Heaven with My own Hands. I love you. I love you. I love you. My Mission here will grow and multiply to the ends of the earth. Today I thank you in a special way for responding to My Call. My Son loves you so very much. He can deny you no good thing because He loves you. I thank you for embracing your little crosses out of love for My Son and Our Priests. Love Our Priests. Love Our Priests. Love Our Priests." Third Sorrowful Mystery The Crowning with Thorns "You can never love them too much. Be kind to them. Love them enough to pray daily and constantly for them. They are under serious attacks every day. satan knows that to bring down the priesthood would bring down the Church of My Son and of My Immaculate Heart. I love you." Our Mother then Spoke to my heart, "Your house will soon be empty. It means empty of self, My daughter. I can only work through empty vessels. I desire to fill you with My Peace and My Love. All you must do is be empty and open." "Open your hearts, My beloved children and let My Son Jesus come to dwell in you. Invite Him to come and dwell in your heart and in your soul. Trust Him. I love you, My little ones. I have come here for you, too, not just for My priests. You are responding to My Call to you. Do not worry or be afraid. All is going according to God's Plan. Did my Son not hear your prayers for your country? Pray for your President's protection. Continue to pray." I see a frozen wasteland, almost total darkness. All is ice and snow. Coldness. I see no living thing. But then the sun comes out and touches the ice and snow. This produces more Light. The Light is multiplied and the ice melts. I see trees and plants that were bent over and seemed to be dead become upright again. It's a new Springtime coming upon the earth. Trees and plants that seemed to be dead are sprouting new green leaves. I see blossoms, flowers of every shape and color. I see fruit, good delicious fruit on all the trees and plants. Our Mother Speaks again: "We are on the threshold of a great Event, the Greatest Event, an Event yet to be revealed to you... I am with you My children. As close to you as I was to My Son Jesus in the stable in Bethlehem on the First Christmas. I am touching each one of you deeply today and you will feel My Touch of Love. Go forth from here and share your healing with others especially with your priests. Do not be afraid for I am touching their hearts through your prayers and through your hearts of Faith. Many of My priest sons have become tired and discouraged. I will touch these in a deeper blessing, a renewal of their soul and spirit. I love you, My beloved children, all of you. Each one of you is a special gift to me. My child, I will go to ______today and I will heal her deepest wounds. I will be present with ------today. I will visit many places today. The hearts who wanted to be here will feel My presence. I bring Love and Peace wherever I go. Thank you for coming here to pray with Me. I promise you holy priests for I love you. Be faithful My little ones, a while longer. Many things will change. I bring hope for the future. Abortions will become less and less as more hearts are converted. Your country will be renewed. Vocations to the holy priesthood and religious life will increase and My One Holy Catholic Church will be renewed and made whole and One again. This is My holy Promise to you for your faithfulness. I love you. Your Mother, Lady of the Bayou, Mother of Divine Love." Our Mother reminded me that today is the Last Saturday of this Century and of this Millennium. She said that next Saturday is the First Saturday of the Month, year, new Century and new Millennium, but it is also the Last Saturday of the Jubliee Year. Another meaning of the First and the Last Saturday. Today She Asks that we announce that we will soon begin the outdoor 15 decade Rosary. We must ask prayer groups & individuals to "Adopt-a-Mystery." Our Mother says "this is My Way of including everyone in helping to build My Mission for Priests." On our back porch is an orange tree planted from a seed in Dec. 1987. The first time it bloomed was on March 25, 1999, the day Our Lady of the Bayou Shrine was blessed for the first time. It was still in bloom on April 24, 1999 for Our Lady's first public Visitation. This was the Visit to commemorate the first month that Jesus was in Her Holy Womb. On Her 9th Visit, December 25, 1999 the first oranges were ripe. We sliced these few oranges and shared them with those who stayed to share a Christmas meal with us. This year we have been given the second crop of oranges and Our Mother asked us to give them to everyone who was here on the Last Saturday and to ask everyone to plant the seeds. My son said that the more oranges they picked to give away, the more the oranges multiplied on the tree. There were 70-80 pilgrims present, bagfuls of oranges went home with them in all directions, yet there are 3 bushels under our table and as many still in the tree. End of Claire Rose_______________ December 30, 2000 Theriot, LA. Leslie Therese` received: Our Lady first Appeared in a white mantle and dark blue dress. She was holding Baby Jesus. He was about a year old. I remembered that it was a year ago we celebrated Jesus' Birth when Our Mother Appeared here on Christmas Day 1999. Our Lady is standing above us all and Graces are pouring from Her Hands to all of us. This looks like sun rays. Our Mother Speaks: "There will be great changes in your life coming in the New Year. Life should be celebrated. It is a gift to be cherished and shared." I see Blessed Mother pregnant, with Jesus still in Her Womb. She is wearing a dark maroon colored mantle and a dark blue-green dress. She is showing me Her stomach, pointing to it saying, "This is My Lord, My Son, My God." "Life will become important again. Pray for your president." A Message for priests: "My sons, I look for you at every visit. Still you do not come. My Heart and Arms ache for you to come here to Me. I come here for you. Our Lord has sent Me to make a place for you His special sons. Come here to Me and do not be afraid of reparation (of being restored) for your faithfulness. Even though you do not believe, you will know My Presence here. When you come to this place that God has chosen you will be rewarded with a renewal of body and spirit. But above all, a renewal of Faith. A Faith so strong that it will never be broken. My sons, your parishes, My people need you to come back to the one true church. My Son Jesus' Church has gotten lost in platitudes. It is well hidden. Please, My sons, seek out the true church and bring it back to My people. Live and teach the Commandments. Live and teach respect of God's Home and His people. I am counting on you, My sons. Your Mother." A message for two holy nuns: "My daughters so faithful, I love you and thank you for hearing My call to you." For the priest who is present: "My loving and faithful son, I thank you for coming every month. I see and know all you do for me and in My Son's Name. I love you and hold you within My Immaculate Heart. I know you are trying. Your Mother" "My People, My Children, You are most blessed today. I love you as you are. Continue to pray and dedicate your daily deeds for My sons (priests). Every prayer is heard. I have brought all of your petitions home with Me and I know your hearts. Pray. Pray. Pray for My sons to come to Me. Pray for their renewal and for the true Church to be brought back to it's people. To My special little ones, listen to your parents for they love you as I do." After I read the Message that I received I saw Our Blessed Mother again walking among us. She is dressed in gold with a bride's veil coming from Her Crown. End of Leslie Therese`________________ 12/30/00 Last Saturday of December Priests Saturday Received by a bride from another area Lin. Everyone present blessed them selves with holy water. The Veni Creator was sung in French by one of the people present. It was very beautiful. I started to say the rosary, but one of the people present reminded me I hadn't invited the holy angels and saints and souls being made holy in purgatory to pray with us and for us. I did this and also invited Our Lady to pray with us. We started the rosary at 2:00 p.m. At the first Joyful Mystery, The Annunciation, Our Lady speaks, "My children I am here. Thank you for coming My children." Our Lady is here and she is all in creamy white with gold around her mantle. She is Our Lady, Mother of Divine Love. Her gown and clothes flow in the breeze. She is smiling. At the second Joyful Mystery, The Visitation, Our Lady speaks, "My children thank you for coming together today to pray for priests at My request. I join you to all those all over the world who have come together to pray for priests at My request." I see Our Lady under many titles, Our Lady of Divine Grace, Our Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of Medjugorje, Our Lady Mother of Divine Love. At the third Joyful Mystery, The Birth of Our Lord, Our Lady asked, "Keep writing My daughter." I see Our Lady touch each one of us very gently, only as a loving mother would. At the fourth Joyful Mystery, The Presentation of Our Lord in the Temple, I am very aware of everyone praying around me. I see Our Lady standing behind two of the people present. She stood behind one and then the other. Then Our Lady spoke, "My children pray for My priest sons who are in error. Pray for them to come back to My Son. Pray for them to have conversion of heart, to mend their ways and teach correct doctrine, the true faith." At the fifth Joyful Mystery, The Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple, Our Lady speaks, "My priest sons that are holy, pray for your brother priests who need conversion of heart. Much prayer is needed to convert their hearts and bring them back to My Son. Thank you for writing My child. Thank you for your obedience." Our Lady stood by another person present. Much love poured out of Our Lady's Heart to that person. Our Lady spoke again, "My daughters this is a great time of mercy. Pray! Pray! Pray for holy priests. Pray that My priest sons will have the courage to stand up for My Son and for what is right." At the first Sorrowful Mystery, The Agony in the Garden, Our Lady said to me, "It is all right little one. You cannot kneel yet! Accept this as part of your cross little one. I know that your heart is kneeling." I see satan cringing, his arms over his head and fleeing as we pray the rosary. I have seen this before. Again Our Lady tell us, "My children the weapon I have given you in the rosary is most powerful. Pray it daily My children for our dear Priests. It will release much grace." At the second Sorrowful Mystery, The Scourging at the Pillar, Our Lady says, "My daughters thank you for helping each other with the saying of the rosary. I love you My children My precious daughters." I see Our Lady touching each of us most tenderly and gently. She says, "Oh! How I love you My daughters, My prayer warriors. If you only knew how much I love you, how much My Son loves you." At the third Sorrowful Mystery, The Crowning with Thorns, Our Lady says, "Thank My Son for allowing Me to come to you." I see Our Lady kneeling in the midst of us and praying with us. She is all in blue and white. She is Our Lady of Divine Grace. She is smiling as she looks at each of us praying for her priest sons. I see angels hovering above us. At the fourth Sorrowful Mystery, The Carrying of the Cross, I see one angel holding a chalice and the Eucharist is held above it. I see drops of blood coming from the Eucharist. It goes out to all of us. Great, great grace going out to all of us. Our Lady says, "My daughters much grace is being released because of your prayers. Encourage others to pray for our priests. Help spread this Mission of Love for the priesthood to all you meet. All you have to do My daughters is sew the seed and leave the rest up to Me and My Son." At the fifth Sorrowful Mystery, The Crucifixion, Our Lady says, "We love you My children. The Trinity and the Holy Angels and Saints and also the Souls being made holy in Purgatory love you. Your prayers waft to heaven with a great welcome. They become incense before the throne of God and is most pleasing." I am very aware of all of us praying. At the first Glorious Mystery, The Resurrection, Our Lady speaks, "I am blessing each one of you here today and all those who are joining you praying for priests all over the world at My request. Thank you for answering My call." Oh my Mother thank you for coming today and visiting us and praying with us and for blessing us. Our Lady says, "Thank My Son for allowing Me to come. I come for all of you. I come to ask you to pray for My priest sons and for all the world." At the second Glorious Mystery, The Ascension, Our Lady says, "My children it pleases Me so to hear the rosary in other languages and the singing of the 'AVE' after each decade." Touch each soul here today dear Mother so they will know the greatness of your love. I see Our Lady standing just above us. Her hands are outstretched and rays come from Her Hands with grace coming from them to each of us. She is Our Lady Mother of Divine Love. She is smiling. At the third Glorious Mystery, The Decent of the Holy Spirit, a great peace came over me. I could feel a great peace all around me. Our Lady says, "Oh My children, Oh how I love you. Oh How My Son loves you." At the fifth Glorious Mystery, The Coronation of Our Lady, She spoke, "Thank you My children for coming today and answering My call to pray for My priest sons. Many graces go out to all the world. Many graces go to all you meet. I love you. Your Mother, Mother of Divine Love." I see a front view of Our Lady, Mother of Divine Love, in the middle of us and just above us. She is all in white with a gold crown with seven points and a monstrance holding the Eucharist(Jesus) in it in the front of the crown. She is very beautiful and she is smiling.End of bride from another area.
