Our Lady of the Sierras - Christmas Message of 12-18-2015

(Commentary) Again this year we had the participating attendance of six Priests, eight Deacons and close to 500 visitors. Our Lady again appeared to the Visionary, Pat. In this year’s message Our Lady indicated more personally to those who she called pilgrims and their journey forth along the path God asked Our Lady to illuminate. Also in the prayer room were five priests and the following message was given and recorded:


“My dear children,    
During these times of My visitation … I come to reassure you of God’s love and mercy. He has allowed Me, your Mother to relay these messages of His love …that you may grow deeper into your understanding of love of God and love for others. The world you live in I need not mention … but you My children are pilgrims … who journey forth along the path … that God has allowed Me to illuminate. You are all called … each and every one of you is called. The problem is My children … not all listen.  As God prompts your heart tonight … open your heart and your ears … to hear the love of the Father … the love of the Son … the love of a Mother.”

(Apparent pause – faint tongues)

“Many times I know you pray and you feel as though your prayers are not heard. I tell you this night, I weep at your sorrows and pains and I rejoice in those moments of happiness. Do not become discouraged … but focus upon the Cross … for My son died for your sins … the sins of the world. In My Fiat to God … I said yes … and brought the Savior of the world to you. In My Fiat … as I knelt beneath His cross … I gave My Fiat to Him as His Mother … and your Mother. Tonight I wish you to remember … that this pilgrimage lasts but a short while. Allow your Mother to lead you … for look children … the path is well lit for you who can see the love of God. Come, come now … let us be about the journey … the journey of love … the journey of mercy … the journey of forgiveness. I tell you tonight … if you so permit … I will gather each heart. Fill each heart with all that you wish to present to God … and I will place them on this altar this night … and they will become a sweetened gift to God.”

(Pat speaks):

The sky becomes the screen of stars … and it is as though a curtain is pulled back and a bright, bright light shines forth. In a frame of stars stands our Mother. She is in white and blue with a sash (cord) around her waist … Her eyes appear barely open ... yet very inviting. It appears as though a path or stairway… perhaps a ladder has formed. The stars light the path … which enables the pilgrims to go forth as Our Lady beckons them … ever so gently… and ever so reassuringly. There is no doubt now… they come. The lights which brighten this area upon which they walk … are stars but in a strange shape … similar to a half moon … I think they are shells. They provide a brilliant light … for each one that comes. I see a long line of all of these pilgrims … the journey is not easy … but yet it is lit and they have confidence … because Our Mother calls. They walk slowly … but they continue onward. As they get closer to Our Mother … it would seem as though they hear something. I would think they hear that song … of Divine Love of which She speaks … and they seem to vanish beneath Her mantle. As they vanish … others come and the same thing happens … they vanish beneath the Mantle of Our Lady. There is no fear... there is joy … there is hope. It is their time … the song and then they go. They go as they are called … I cannot hear names … but I know that God is calling them. Somewhere in that line of pilgrims … each of us has found a place.
