Message (1) from MOTHER OF MERCY
To CHRIS, EVERYONE AT THE PRAYER MEETING, AND ALL WHO HAVE A
DEVOTION TO MOTHER OF MERCY
April 25, 2006 through Chris Courtis, a visionary in Maryland, U.S.A.
I am speaking to you, my little one and to everybody here. I desire publicly to announce that the Rosary that you made for me that I have now changed to Mother of Mercy, I desire it to be given out on May 25th. Do not worry about how this will happen. You have everything that you need. You have help, my dear one. It will be ready by May 25th, and I will explain more about it and how to pray it.
My first message for everyone is this: Everyone who is here in the prayer group, everyone who has a devotion to Mother of Mercy, I desire to say this:
My dear children,
I thank you for your love, for your prayers, and your sacrifices, and I ask you to be humble and to live my requests. There are so many people throughout the world who know of me but will not believe firmly, and will not pray, and will not humble themselves before God. My dear children, are my requests so much? Do I ask so much of you? No, my dear little children, I do not.
I ask for the same thing I asked for in Fatima, in Medjugorje, and here. I desire you to pray, to fast, to go to Communion, and to be united to Jesus. I desire you to know that there are compromises, even in your daily prayer life. I desire you to know this. You do not have to do everything in one day, or all at once. I instead, invite you to do as much as you can, and God will take care of the rest. Give me, dear children, your hearts! There are some things that can not be compromised, such as praying the Rosary a day. Even my Chaplet, Mother of Mercy, can be compromised. For those people who find it difficult at first, first pray the Divine Mercy, and then slowly add my Mother of Mercy Chaplet. Do it over time, any one decade a week until you say the whole thing.
As for fasting, it is true, I do call you to fast, but if you cannot fast on bread and water, I desire you to fast by giving up anything that you can – smoking, television, everything that you need to work on, you can give up to God. Pray and fast. If you find it difficult to fast on bread and water, than start small. Try to avoid meat on Wednesdays and Fridays. I love you, little children.
And as for Confession, which you should make, if you cannot go once every other week, than at least try to go once a month. If you cannot go to Communion everyday, you should at least try to go once every other day, or if you cannot even every other day, then at least on Sundays.
And in terms of spending time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, if you can do this once a month, then that will be acceptable to God.
These are the things that can be compromised, but not all of it. Again, in me giving you this compromise, it is for you to determine where you are to go in your prayer life. Start small and then add more on to your daily prayer. But I do not desire you to be boggled down with prayer and devotion. Devotion is good as long as it is from your heart. Keep this in mind as you live every message. As I have said in the past, and will continue to say in the present, do your best and do not worry. God is with you. Continue to try your best, and what you cannot do, do not worry about it. And if you have a busy day and you cannot do everything or get all your prayers in, then at least say a Rosary; and whatever you cannot do, ask your holy guardian angel to pray for you and to finish that which you cannot do.
I love you, dear children. God loves you, and I will compromise with you in small things, but you still must live even the compromise that I have given to you. I love you, dear children, and I bless you, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Thank you for your response to my call. And now my second message under the title of Mother of Mercy.
