Cincinnati, Ohio, USA “Our Lady of the Tear of Joy” (2017- present)

This is the true story of how this miracle photo of “Our Lady of the Tear of Joy” occurred.  Our Blessed Mother is now giving messages that She wants this image of Her “known to all.”  The name of the man whom Blessed Mary entrusted with this mission is Arrow Osborne.  He and five others began receiving messages from Blessed Mary after the miraculous image appeared.  Over the past 24 years he has traveled to numerous sites of reported apparitions of Our Lord Jesus and Our Blessed Mother.  He had rose petals rain down upon himself and about 70,000 plus people on that apparition day in Conyers, Georgia in May of 1993.  He has seen lights beam down on people during the midnight apparition of Our Lady of Lights in Kentucky in October of 1993.  He has been overcome with the smell of roses “countless times” at other apparition sites – which historically indicates the presence of Our Blessed Mother.  He belongs to a very large network of prayer warriors, mainly whom he met in Medjugorje.  One of them is a man by the name of Mike Stanton.  In April of 2017, he and Mike (from Connecticut) were planning another trip to Medjugorje with a group of fellow prayer warriors.  Mike asked him, “Have you ever heard of a visionary from the Philippines?”  Mike said he was going to be at the Holy Spirit Center in Cincinnati the following day.  Arrow headed towards Cincinnati.

While at the Holy Spirit Center for this most Blessed event, Arrow met a man by the name of Neil — who was very close to this visionary from the Philippines.  Neil and Arrow immediately struck up a very close friendship.  Neil told me that this visionary from the Philippines would be coming back in late August or September.  Meanwhile, Mike and Arrow went to Medjugorje with their prayer warriors and had a most inspirational time.  Neil sent Arrow this visionary’s schedule from the Philippines, which indicated that he would be in the greater Cincinnati and northern Kentucky area from August 28th through September 6th at different Catholic churches, doing his healing ministry.  Arrow went to all these events every day.  On Saturday, September 2nd, while at St. Patrick church in northern Kentucky, Neil pulled him aside and said that there is a very holy woman who lives in the Cincinnati area who celebrates Our Blessed Mother’s birthday every year.  This visionary from the Philippines also comes — as well as a very large group of people and priests from all over.  Neil told Arrow to get there early.  In the lady’s home were several statues of Our Lord and Blessed Mother that were covered in “Gold Dust” with one of them pulsating with “Gold Dust” when one would stand near it. Arrow has seen this miraculous detail before in Conyers, Georgia when Our Lord Jesus and the Blessed Mother were appearing to visionary Nancy Fowler in the early 1990’s.  “Gold Dust” is reportedly the presence of Our Blessed Mother and also the Holy Spirit.

Looking up towards the ceiling in this woman’s home, Arrow saw several large blue and white balloons tied together in the formation of a Rosary.  The blue balloons represented the Our Father prayer and white balloons for the Hail Mary prayer.  On a table were small pieces of paper with a string attached to each one; you would write out your prayer petition to the Blessed Mother, then tie it to one of the strings on the balloons.  Arrow walked to the back yard where they had large tents set up and chairs for everyone. 

The visionary from the Philippines arrived with at least five priests.  Some were from other countries; one of these most holy priests came from a parish just outside of Rome, Italy to be part of this most blessed event.  There had to have been over two hundred people invited to this blessed event from all over the United States, Canada, and other countries.  There was a Holy Mass, and then this visionary performed his healing ministry using rose petals.

Afterwards, everybody was asked to go to the front yard because they were going to release the rosary balloons into the air.  When they released them, everybody started singing “Happy Birthday” to Our Blessed Mother.  Arrow looked up and saw Neil in the upstairs bedroom window.  The window was open wide because he was taking pictures of the balloons as they went up into the sky.  When all of this was happening, the sun began spinning!  People were saying, “Look at the Sun!”  Arrow went into the house and upstairs to the bedroom where Neil was.  Neil had just taken a polaroid picture using an instamatic camera while the balloons were still going up.  Not realizing what was about to happen, Neil then turned to Arrow and said, “This one is yours.”  Arrow watched with amazement as the image of “Our Lady of the Tear of Joy” slowly developed in the photo.  There were NO images of Our Blessed Mother on any of the balloons, nor in the trees, on any signs, or anywhere!

Our Blessed Mother is now giving messages about this image of Her.  In one of Her first messages She said,

“This image of My tear is a tear of Joy (hence Tear of Joy), for all those who were present at the birthday party in My honor.  You were healing My heart with those present in honoring Me.  Tell them this image of me is a healing image.” 

Our Lady indicates in her messages that, when we seek Her, it gives Her joy (hence Tear of Joy), and it heals Her heart.  She will then lead us to Her Son. 

“When they look at My image, they are to recite the prayer, ‘Remember O most    Gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known …’ (Memorare Prayer) When they say  this prayer to Me, Remember O most gracious Virgin Mary, they are fleeing to Me,  causing me Joy.  I will heal them by leading them to my Son.  Tell them, Tell them. It brings Me Joy (healing Her heart) when you come to Me, and I will lead you to My   Son.” 

This message keeps getting repeated. 

On October 11, Arrow was with a visionary who had been getting messages since the fall of 1993.  This visionary chose to go to Medjugorje against doctor’s advice as she was gravely sick at the time and could die. This mystic went because her granddaughter was very sick and understood that suffering is a grace if we offer it up to God for our loved one or even for people that we don’t even know. In the end, the granddaughter was healed!  Jesus told this mystic that it was because of her sacrificial suffering, making the journey to Medjugorje and having the faith of offering up her suffering.  Afterwards, Arrow was with this mystic and a group of prayer warriors, saying the Rosary.  Each person took turns holding the actual miraculous photo when it came for their turn to say their part of the Rosary.  When the miracle photo of “Our Lady of the Tear of Joy” came to this mystic, and it was their turn to say the Rosary, the actual image of Our Blessed Mother in the photo “came alive.”  Our Blessed Mother appeared to be saying the Rosary with them with Her lips moving and eyes actually moving also.  Now, in one of Our Lady’s messages, She said, “Tell them this image of me (Picture), is a healing image.”  This message from Our Lady means that this miraculous photo – after being blessed by a priest — can be placed upon somebody when praying with them.

“All of us once had a mother holding us in her arms.  Whether by our birth mother’s or an adopted mother, we were held with such extreme love with the caress of our mother’s hands.  The caress of our mother’s love was felt with her hands holding us in her arms.  The caress of our mother’s love was felt with a gentle kiss on our little cheeks.  The caress of our mother’s love was felt when we woke up being scared of the dark and the caress of her hands holding us, taking the fear away.  The caress of our mother’s love was felt when we fell down scraping our knee and her hands touching our hurts, making us feel better.  The caress of our mother’s love is not just with her hands.  The caress of our mother’s love was in her eyes, looking at us when we left for school in our elementary school years.  The caress of our mother’s love was those tears in her eyes when we left home, starting our own journey in life.”

 “The caress of Our Lady’s love holding us is so very gentle that we cannot actually feel it, it is that soft.  The caress of Our Lady’s love is when She is waiting for us to call upon Her when we are scared so She can hold us even closer to Her, taking the fear away.  The caress of Our Lady’s love is when we call upon Her when we have our own physical hurts and Our Lady will touch our physical wounds with a gentle kiss.  The caress of Our Lady’s love is when we call upon Her in our emotional needs and She lets you fell the warmth and love of Her hands holding you, Her touch is that soft.  The caress of Our Lady’s love can be felt knowing that She is looking into our eyes, letting us know that She loves us with unconditional love.  The caress of Our Lady’s love is knowing that She wants to take our hurts, our tears, our prayers to Her Son.  The caress of Our Lady’s love is knowing that although we cannot see Her, Her love is surrounding us.  The caress of Our Lady’s love is knowing that She has Her mantle of Love & Protection wrapped around us and She will never take that away.  The caress of Our Lady’s Love, wow!!  There is nothing to compare it to.”  — from the Holy Spirit

Note:  Shortly after the Noon Mass – Two New Heavy Canvas Prints of The Image Of Our Lady Tear of Joy (Professionally Created, Framed& Mounted on a Tripod) were placed in the Sanctuary that were to be Blessed By Fr. Joe.  These Elegant Canvas Prints will be traveling with Arrow when he has scheduled “Speaking Engagements”, so that the audience can gaze upon our Beautiful Heavenly Mother as the Miraculous Image of “Our Lady Tear of Joy”.

 As Fr. Joe was standing in front of these “Images” he was giving a presentation to those in attendance at this celebration and I suddenly felt the presence of Our Lady, who then began to speak.

“My Sweetest Children, I am filled with jubilation on this wonderful Celebration of Blessings of My Miraculous Images by Fr. Joe.  This is indeed a joyous occasion and all of my faithful children who have taken the time this afternoon to attend this event will receive an abundance of Blessings through the Graces of my love for each of you and these blessings will also be given to your family members that you have been praying for.  I am so thrilled and delighted on this very special and euphoric day and I want to thank My Child, Arrow and all of my other children who gave of their time, energy and expense to this magnificent project.”  

 “I was also in attendance for the Celebration of The Holy Mass and was enraptured by My Priest Sons (Fr. Joe & Fr. Sam) Offering the Sacrifice of My Divine Son in the Celebration of the Mass. To witness both of My Priest Sons celebrating the Mass and now to have them both here at the Blessing of My Images is both blissful and I feel elated.  I am ever so grateful for their presence here today.  Oh, My Children, what Tears of Joy I am shedding on this splendid day as I watch my sweet children come up to the Sanctuary to unveil these elegant images.”

Note:  As Fr. Joe began the blessing of each image, Arrow saw what he thought was “glitter” falling upon all of those present at this celebration.  Our Lady then told Arrow that it was indeed the “Gold Glitter”, and it represented the Graces and Blessings that were being given to all those in attendance.  Our Lady said that it was symbolic of both protection and virtue.

Our Lady continues to speak: 

“Oh, My Children, what Tears of Joy I am shedding on this very special day as I watch all of my children come up to show their Heavenly Mother reverence of love and dedication of My Miraculous Image.  

I want all my children to know that I hear and feel their tears of pain and sorrow for all the heartache and hardships that they are experiencing.  These days that you are living are very difficult and trying times. You must all turn to My Divine Son in His Most Holy Eucharist.  His Holy Eucharist will be your strength in these strenuous and burdensome times.

 I am your Heavenly Mother and when you turn to me in your challenging times, I will present all your petitions to My Divine Son.  He will never abandon you in your time of anguish, nor will He ever desert you in your time of loneliness.  

My sweet children, I will bring your petitions before My Divine Son and I will implore Him through His Mercy.  His Love and Mercy is Infinite and He so loves all of His Children.

Those of my children, who gaze upon my Image of Our Lady Tear of Joy, I ask that you bring me all your intentions of sorrow, pain, depression, dejection, desolation and offer up through me all the heaviness of your heart and I will place them in the Merciful Heart of My Divine Son.

I love each and every one of my children and I will help each of you and will plead with My Divine Son, if it is His Will, through the love of My Sorrowful Heart.

I bless you in My Son’s Name.”

On March 24th, Our Lady gave a message that She wanted the Holy Rosary said on March 27th for Her Son’s priests.  The spiritual director of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy approved the message and — with it being the season of Lent, the “Sorrowful Mystery” of the Holy Rosary was to be said.  The Rosary was at 7:00 p.m. in everybody’s respective time zone.  Yesterday (March 27th, 2019), Our Lady gave a message to two visionaries and below is what they were told and shown during the time they were saying the Sorrowful Mystery of the Holy Rosary.  This message has been approved to be posted by the spiritual director of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy.  

“Today My little ones, you prayed for My Son’s priests.  My Son’s priests are so special to Me for they are doing My Son’s Will.  My little ones, I shed Tears of Joy down upon all those who were praying for My Son’s priests.  I Bless you My little ones in My Son’s name” 

Present at the Rosary was a statue of Our Lady of Fatima.  The statue was immersed in light –which was streaming towards all those present and the priests all over the world.  During the Sorrowful Mystery, a drop of Jesus’ blood fell upon all the priests.

“Rays of My love……. My little ones, as you are able to see the rays of the sun come down upon you and you can feel the warmth of the sun touching you, so is My love for you.  Although you can not actually see it, the love I have for you comes down upon you, touching you with My Motherly love I have for all of My precious little ones.  I Bless you My little ones in My Son’s name”

“My sweet little ones, the Rosary prayer to Me is sweet music to Me.  This sweet music resounds throughout Heaven and brings immense joy to My Son for all those who call upon Me.  I Bless all of My little ones in My Son’s name”

These are the TRUE MIRACLES that demonstrate people are coming closer to Our Lady.  Nothing but “Good Fruits” are coming from this mission of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy.

Renee, from Michigan, USA:

“When I was younger, age 11- through 14, I was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis . After my parents explored all options through the arthritis foundation they were then introduced to the charismatic healing masses by my dear relatives Living in Canada, so my whole family, once a month, would go to the healing Masses.  Yes, I received healing from the Holy Spirit, and my doctors could not believe that I was no longer going into a wheelchair, and that my hands were not crippled any longer.”

Mike, from Ohio, USA:

“The doctors found cancer in my body. It was not a tiny area. It’s all over — my brain, my legs, my liver — its everywhere.  It was stage four melanoma cancer and there were some treatments but the outlook was not good.  We prayed the Memorare holding Our Lady’s image, and I was anointed with Our Lady’s Tears.”  Armed with miraculous medals and rosaries (touched by Our Lady in Medjugoje) – Mike and his wife felt like they had a place to turn for help.  In a few months as prayers continued, his test results were suddenly moving in the other direction. In fact, the doctors were a little surprised.  Most of his numbers had improved substantially. The Dr was so happy and was hugging us and even called in his other Oncologist that shook Mike’s hand.  His recovery was complete in a few more months.  His brain scan and Pet scan results were truly unbelievable. The doctor said he is 90-95% cancer free and that she has never had a patient respond so well.

Phil, from Pennsylvania, USA:

The Blessed Mother appeared to Phil seven years ago, and he just saw the miracle image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy on the Facebook site.  Phil is adamant that this photo of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy is the Blessed Mother who had appeared to him.  He had had a skiing accident in February 2011, breaking his neck, fracturing vertebrates 4, 5 & 6 and also trauma to his arm.  He was in a neck brace – but, during the night of July 3rd, 2011, he saw a “very beautiful woman” standing in his bedroom.  He said, “I knew it was the Blessed Mother.  She simply stood there and said nothing.  She is beautiful.  She is so very beautiful.  There was a slight breeze, and Her hair and Her mantle were blowing from the breeze.  She is so beautiful.  I felt like I was being healed.  My whole body tingled.  I have never felt that type of peace before.  I knew I was healed.  I kept rubbing my eyes to see if I was imagining it.  Each time I would rub my eyes and would look up, She was still there.  This lasted in what seemed like a very long time.  Then, at day break, the sun came in through the window — and She simply disappeared.”  And after this, Phil started to improve.  “When I saw Our Lady’s picture, I said to myself, That’s Her!!  That’s who I saw!!”  Phil said that he is a construction worker and is fully back to work as well as skiing again with “no limitations.” 

Elizabeth, from Warrington, England:

Elizabeth from Sacred Heart Church had cancer on her lung.  She put the picture of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy on her lung every day.  Her x-ray results indicated that the cancer had gone.  The nurse said she has never seen anything like it before.  Elizabeth said she doesn’t feel ill at all now.

Peter, from Missouri, USA:

Peter, age four, was born with severe kidney problems.  His kidneys were constantly failing — even with a simple cold or flu.  Peter had been hospitalized numerous times because of this health issue.  About a month ago, Peter became ill, and his kidneys stopped functioning.  He was hospitalized in the Children’s ward.  An image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy was given to the family to place on Peter.  Peter made a remarkable recovery and has had no problems with his kidneys since then.  The family is giving credit for the healing of Peter to the intercession of Our Blessed Mother and that miraculous picture.

Ray, from Newfoundland, Canada:

Ray’s family is Protestant but was receptive on getting Our Lady’s image of the Tear of Joy.  His wife had applied for over 50 jobs over the last several months with no response, and they were now out of money.  When they received Our Lady’s image, they began reciting the Memorare prayer.  The wife then got a job offer.  She went for the interview and was offered a position far above what she had applied for and started that week.  But the story gets even better.  They have a statue of Our Blessed Mother with a Rose bush next to her at the side of their house.  Over the last five years, the rose bush has produced no roses.  But now, five roses have appeared on the bush — but this is in October in Newfoundland!  Newfoundland is one of the very northwest provinces in Canada – and it gets very cold early – not a time when roses would bloom! 

Don, from Ohio, USA:

Don had many cancerous tumors in his abdomen.  Don took the picture of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and placed it on his belly where the largest tumor was located.  The Memorare prayer was prayed two times.  Follow-up tests were done on Don last week, and he got the results yesterday. There are so many cancer tumors that are totally gone now.  It’s like they never existed!  And the major tumor that they were mainly concerned about has significantly reduced in size.  His blood work also looks so much better.  The doctors, Don, and his wife were all amazed and so pleased with the results and the miraculous changes. 

Beatrice, from Converse, Texas, USA:

I’ve been wearing hearing aids for nine years due to bilateral decreased hearing loss.  I also suffer from season asthma.  From October through January, I struggled to make it through the day as I’m still a working woman.  Every day after work, I would go straight home, eat some homemade chicken soup and go to bed.  Throughout the night and during the day, I felt extremely tired, sleepy, my mind in a fog, and felt feverish and kept getting chills throughout the day and night no matter how many layers of woolens I was wearing — even though I did not have a fever.  In January of 2018, I noticed that my right ear felt plugged and I could not hear even thought I had my hearing aid on.  I was also experiencing laryngitis (or so I thought).  Thinking that the hearing aid needed to be serviced, I took it to the hearing aid center to be fixed.  After checking it out, the technician said it was not the hearing aid and performed a hearing test.  The result showed that I had complete hearing loss of my right ear.  I placed the photo Tear of Joy on my right ear, prayed the Memorare repeatedly and petitioned Mother Mary to intercede to Her Son, Jesus, if it was His Will to heal me.  Next morning, I woke up to the alarm on my Cell phone and reached for it.  It was not on the table next to my bed, so I got up and went looking for it.  I have a 4-bedroom house, and when I got to the last bedroom, I found it on a shelf I had last left it.  I suddenly realized that I had actually heard it ring and started crying and praising The Lord and thanking Him over and over for showing me His compassion and mercy by healing me.  I could not stop praising Him and haven’t stopped thanking and praising Him for this miracle and forever more will praise His Holy name.  I returned to the ENT doctor to check on the hole in my ear.  After he examined me, he started talking about what our next step would be to restore my hearing loss and voice.  At this point, I shared with him about the healing image of the Tear of Joy and that I had regained my hearing and my voice on Holy Wednesday.  He told his technician to run another test on me, and the test came back that I had perfect hearing on both sides now.  Hallelujah, Hallelujah!”  

Rosary Group, southern Indiana, USA:

“Our rosary group met a couple of days later, and a message was given to one of the members of our group that Our Lady of the Tear of Joy wanted an enlarged photo made to be put in a place chosen by Her so that all could see Her.  I texted the visionary, Arrow, about what Our Lady requested, and that we were going to have one made.  Arrow told me he would have it done himself professionally because, if made too large, it would be distorted.  He also would have it blessed.  So, the following week, Arrow returned to southern Indiana with five, 8×10, blessed photos of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy.  Our rosary group received two of these photos. There are two different places we meet for rosary. One of the places is visited by whomever wishes to come and pray.  On Sunday July 1st, there was a group of Mexican workers who came to pray. They were all kneeling surrounding the photo/image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy — and as they were praying, the image started weeping inside the glass.  All present saw it, and a message was given that these were “Tears of Joy”. These Mexican workers literally only have the clothes on their backs and the cars they drive are very old, but these people are so humble and joyful to have what they have and they are so devoted to Our Lady. We need to learn by their example to approach Our Lady with sincere and humble hearts.”

Betsy, from Kentucky, USA:

“I am now 64 years old but when I was 23, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Scleroderma. Along with this I have developed some other autoimmune diseases, which is pretty common. So as you can tell I have struggled with some health problems over the years although they did not keep me from working full time as a social worker for 17 years and as a teaching assistant and art teacher at a local elementary school for about 11 yrs. I have been retired for 12 years. In my 50’s I developed an autoimmune problem called Sjogren’s which causes me to have intense dry eyes.  Late last November (2017) I went to see my eye doctor because the dryness of my left eye was causing me vision problems. This was due to Sjogrens. Normally, over the counter drops alleviate the dryness in my eyes but, at this time, that was not helping my left eye. My doctor examined my right eye and said she thought it looked pretty good but was very concerned when she saw the dryness in my left eye. She described little dots that she called stippling. At that point she prescribed steroid drops for my left eye only. She advised me to use the drops over the next few months and return for an appointment in April.
I had been on steroid drops a few times before but only for short periods and always they had quickly and successfully improved my vision and the problem caused by dryness or inflammation. I used these prescription drops in my left eye all the month of December 2017, January and February of 2018 with no improvement in my left eye at all. The vision was still blurry, and the dryness and redness seemed worse. So, at the end of February I made the decision to stop using those steroid drops. During this whole time, I continued to use another prescription medication called Restasis. My doctor has prescribed that medication for many, many year due to inflammation in the eyes.
So, at the end of February, I was pretty discouraged about the loss of clear vision in my left eye. On Saturday, March 3rd I read a story in Spirit Daily that mentioned the mass in Cincinnati and how the picture of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy came about.  So, I went to the website of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and read the whole story. The next week in March I went back to your website and using the photo on the website I prayed to Mary and Jesus about my vision problem in my left eye. When praying I did not ask to be healed of Scleroderma or Sjogrens but only to give me my eyesight back in my left eye.  I had become so dependent on my right eye that I did not even realize at first, the next day, that the vision in my left eye had returned.

On April 3rd, 2018 I kept my appointment with my eye doctor and told her the story of how the steroid eye drops had not worked in December, January and February. I told her I quit using the drops at the end of February.  Then I told her how I had prayed, and my eyesight had returned. She said she believes in the power of prayer.  She also told me that she had no medical explanation on how the eyesight in my left eye returned. She said if the steroid drops were not working for three months they would not suddenly have started working in March when I stopped using the drops.  She said the Restasis could not have fixed the dry eye problem since I had been on that drug for many years. She said if I had just started using that drug then maybe it would have been responsible for curing the problem, but I had not just started using that drug. She quizzed me about things, but, in the end, she said she had no medical answer for how my eyesight returned. On that day she said both eyes looked great and were clear of all dryness. She said my vision was good and my eye pressure was good in both eyes. Everything was good.”

This amazing picture has been reproduced and distributed widely.  Copies need to be blessed first by a priest.  Then, on the back side is the Memorare to be prayed.  This story continues to develop and is being overseen and supported by a Catholic priest. I spoke with Arrow Osborn, myself, and he wished that his email and website be known to everyone as Our Lady wants this image made available to all her children in the world.  Many countries are now venerating this image – and more miracles are being documented.

Barberton, Ohio, USA (1992-1995)

Tony Fernwalt was not a spiritual or holy man. In fact, he had suffered many hardships, including raw poverty, violence, and going to prison. He was not expecting what he experienced on March 10, 1992, as he was doing some cleanup work at St. Jude’s Orthodox Church in Barberton, Ohio. As he climbed the stairs from the church basement where he had been working, he describes:

“I could hear the voice of some young lady that sounded like she was singing – or crying. Then I smelled these roses. I mean the place just reeked of roses. It was so strong … I couldn’t believe it … Then I peeked through the open door of the church, and I saw this lady dressed all in red, standing with her hands open in front of the altar. She was saying over and over, ‘My Son’s Heart is broken.’

I thought, Oh boy! Her kid’s been in an accident or something. Maybe he’s in the service, or sick, or getting a divorce. Anyway, it was none of my business. I shut the door to the basement. I figured to go to the back of the church and not bother her. As I walked past her, she said again, ‘My Son’s Heart is broken.’

She looked like she was from India or some place like that. Long dress, draping veil, funny clothes. Everything was red. When I got to the back of the church, I sat down to rest on an old folding chair. She was right there! It scared me! First thing she says to me is, ‘As you know, my Son is Jesus.’

That bothered me. I said, ‘Yeah, and I suppose you’re the Virgin Mary.’ I figured she was nuts and belonged in the state hospital, Fallsview or Massilon or someplace like that. I looked at her pretty close.

Then I started noticing the beauty of her. She looked too young to have a son in the service. I looked at her real close now. She looked too tall for her body. ‘Something’s wrong here,’ I said to myself. I started going down from her head, down her whole body, till I got to her feet. They were standing on a mist that was resting on the floor. Her feet were maybe a foot off the floor on the mist! She looked me right in the eye and said, ‘Yes.’ (to his question about being the Virgin Mary)

Something in me told me that this was serious. It gripped me – choked me – I couldn’t breathe. I’m sitting in the chair – I felt like I was dying. I grabbed my neck. She said, ‘Do not be afraid.’ I was scared – but some kind of peace came to me when she spoke. ‘Do not be afraid. You have sinned against God. You have sinned against my Son, and you have sinned against God’s children.’

I knew that I had whipped my kids and my wife. Then she started to tell me about other things I had done. She said that I wanted to be cruel. I figured anybody can look up the court records. It’s all there. Then she said,

‘You need to pray. Pray that people come back to church. Pray that people come back to my Son. Pray for forgiveness. Ask my Son for forgiveness.’

Then I started to see my sins unfold in front of me. Only now I wasn’t thinking about how I felt. I could feel how the others felt when I was hurting them. I felt their pain. I even felt their fear. If I hit somebody, I felt the hurt. I could feel their mental and physical pain when I hurt them. She kept asking me to ask Jesus for forgiveness for each thing that I did that I was seeing. She told me things about things I did that nobody ever, ever knew! I thought that I must be dying. I can’t stand this! I didn’t see anything good that I had ever done in my life. Only the bad stuff. And there was plenty of bad stuff. I was kind of mad.

I said, ‘If you are who you say you are, I want to know about the world – things that they say are going to happen.’ We talked about wars, riots, violence in the cities. She said that God does not cause these. We do. She told me about lots of things that are going to happen on the earth. I said to her, ‘I’ve been bad all my life. Why would you care about me? I would have sold your Son for thirty pieces of silver too, maybe less.’

She looked at me – I could see her love for me! She said,

‘No, you are only a child. People will come and teach you love. They will help you to love and understand. I will take you from a Saul to a Paul. I will leave signs to prove that I was here, and believers will come and see and believe.’

She promised that the scent of roses would be a sign. Things would turn gold. The sick would be healed, and weak faith would become strong. She said,”

“My Son wants all people to return to Him. Pray that sinners will be converted. Pray that their hearts turn back to my Son. My Son wants all souls. He does not want to lose even one soul.”

The apparitions with Blessed Mary occurred over a one-and-a-half-year timespan beginning on March 10, 1992 and ending on October 18, 1993. Initially, the visionary claimed he saw her in a small Orthodox Church called St. Judes in Barberton, Ohio where a visible sign was left in the form of a weeping Icon. This painting of the Virgin Mary appeared to produce visible tears that brought people to view the painting for themselves. Seven days later, as She had told him that She would do, the visionary was revisited again by the Mother of Jesus. She told him to “kick the dust from his shoes” and seek the Church of Peter. He did not understand what that meant at first but was brought to a Roman Catholic Church in hopes of doing what she asked. The apparitions began to take place inside the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Kenmore, Ohio twice a week for nearly two weeks.

Nine day later, the Cleveland Archdiocese told Catholics not to involve themselves with the so-called “apparitions” and asked the visionary to leave the Church. The small group moved to a field in Clinton, Ohio, and then back to Barberton, Ohio to the backyard of a city councilman for several more weeks. As word started getting out, and more and more people started to come, liability concerns drove them to an open field on Seville Road in Wadsworth, Ohio. Over the entire summer of 1992, and without the protection of a church building, more and more people arrived in rain or shine, to pray in the open field and listen to what were now daily Messages. Then when the weather started turning colder and flooding became a problem because of the wet summer, the visionary and his family moved south to Jefferson County. They began looking for a permanent place to live and ended up settling in Carroll County, Ohio, about an hour and a half south of Akron.

On November 5, 1992, in the city of Carrollton, the visionary and his family were given permission to join Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church where the daily apparitions continued inside the Church. It was at this point that the visionary started to take instructions in the Catholic faith. Property was purchased several miles away in the town of Kilgore, Ohio where the family continues to live to this day. On December 14, 1992, Our Lady told the visionary about a healing stream that would be found on the property that would produce physical, emotional and spiritual healings. There, a shrine in the shape of a cross was begun. On March 10, 1993, the apparitions occurred only twice a week and then on June 1, 1993, the apparitions reverted to Saturdays. The final public apparition occurred on October 18, 1993.

And that’s when the tears had started. They were about at the neck. One was a little bit further down at the neck then the other — one tear was a little higher than the other and streaming down from both eyes. The first reaction, of course, was to think, “Oh my God, no, not here.” A lot of people would be coming to this tiny church; how could it accommodate all those people there?

People started coming there everyday from all over the world, including Paraguay, Albania, Russia, Greece, and Austria. Rosaries, crosses, and medals were still turning gold in color. The painting kept weeping for about three and half weeks. Healings and miracles became common place there. There are so many.

“There are times when someone will have a cross or rosary and you can see it turning gold right in front of your eyes. I remember a three-inch by two-inch wooden cross made of dark wood. From the inside you could see it becoming white pine. Although it was originally mahogany, it was turning from the inside like a thin hair in the middle gradually spreading out over the cross till the whole thing was all white. There are at least four to six people upstairs in the church right now that it has happened to. Eva, upstairs, has had two things turn gold on her. The central message is that God is using all these things to bring us to Him.”

“My Dear Children, many times you may sit and wonder about your life. What should you do from one moment to the next? Each day of your lives you go about very easily. For many, each day is very happy, yet for others, each day is just another day. But, yet, do they stop and wonder why it seems like another day? Did their day begin with prayer? Did their day begin with Mass? Did their day begin with communion? Did their day begin with my Son Jesus Christ? Did yours? Did your day begin with my Son Jesus Christ?”

November 9, 1992
“My Dear Children, do you feel anger? Do you feel at times in your life that things are not right? Is life confusing at times? When you need to talk, who do you turn to? Your Father? Do you turn to your Mother? Do you turn to your brother? Do you turn to your sister? Who do you turn to talk to when problems run deep? Have you talked to my Son Jesus? Have you talked to your priest? How many times did you need someone to talk to but were too ashamed or scared to tell anyone? Why did you not turn to my Son Jesus? Why did you not confide in your priest? They are loving as my Son Jesus is loving. They are human as my Son Jesus is human. They are here to teach you as my Son Jesus would have you taught. They are here because of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Be not afraid to ask your priest to show you the way to my Son Jesus. Be not afraid for they are here to guide you in the Kingdom of God through my Son Jesus. Thank you for listening. God bless you.”

“Anthony, remember all churches are holy. Never say anything bad about any church. My Son wants everybody, all people, all faiths: He wants every soul. Remember, my Son is your savior … He died for you.”

“Anthony, before Confession, you must open your heart to Jesus. You must have a complete and open heart. You must confess all sins with your mouth even the smallest ones. Do your penance. Always remember, a CONSECRATED EUCHARIST IS MY SON’S TRUE BODY, THE WINE IS MY SON’S TRUE BLOOD. Ask My Son to come into your heart, give your heart to him. My Son is now in your body, heart and soul. Remember that He is in your body. Pray after you receive Him and act accordingly. Do not receive the host with unclean hands. Pray for everyone. Pray that people come back to church.” Note: She directed Anthony to read James 4.

“My Dear Children, many questions have been asked about who should say the rosary. The rosary should be prayed by all (all means all Christians). The rosary is a dedicated prayer just like the Our Father, and you should be proud that you say the rosary openly and faithfully. If everyone would pray the rosary on one certain day of the week, through the prayers of the rosary, all things could change in the happenings of the world. Thank you for listening. God bless you.”

“Dear Children, abortion not only kills the child . . . it also destroys part of the mother’s conscience forever. Both the mother and the doctor will have to answer to God for her actions. Life, our immortal soul, begins at the moment of conception. The souls of aborted babies go directly to heaven and sit at the throne of God as they are innocent and did not commit this sin.”
She asked everyone to pray for the following:
“Pray for the mothers; ask forgiveness for them. Pray that the doctors will have a change of heart.”
Note: “Take care that you do not despise one of these little ones; for I tell you, in heaven their angels continually see the face of my father.” Matthew 18:10

“My Dear Children, I want to tell you that you must realize a few things. Number one: God the Father created all things. Number two: Jesus is the only way to God the Father and His kingdom. I want you to know you must prepare yourselves because you never know when my Son, Jesus, will return. You must always be prepared. But now you must get prepared. Get prepared, get prepared! You must realize these are cries unto all you children for only you will be able to make that decision. My Son came from God the Father to live among the people and look what they did to him. Whose side will you be on when my Son returns? I pray to Him that all of you are on His side, but many of you will not be. You must prepare yourself through prayer. You must soon be ready, for He will come like a thief in the night. He has been knocking on the door for a long time, but soon, he must turn away and go. So, I tell you, get prepared, get prepared, get prepared! Make sure your candle is lit within yourself. Many may laugh at you saying the Lord will not return in your time. It’s been said before. Only God the Father knows when His Son will return, but you must get prepared. Pray that the tribulations are short and that God the Father and God the Son come swiftly and justly. For many of you should not fear when they return. But for many, they do fear. So, I say to you, go to Mass, Confession, Communion, do penance and good deeds. Remember: pray, pray, pray! Intertwine — like a vine — your life with My Son. Pray, Pray, Pray. Get prepared, get prepared, get prepared! For the ones that really love My Son, I want to tell you, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit will protect you when they return. Thank you for listening and God bless you.” Note: “But about that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Matthew 24:36

August 4, 1992
“Dear Children, don’t hold My Son inside of yourself or a small group. You must go out as my Son sent his disciples out and spread his message all over to all people, not to just a few. This way, when all mankind hears of My Son, then the prophecies will be fulfilled. For many of you want to hide My Son within yourself and not share Him with anyone else. How many of you are guilty of this? He gives you everlasting life and He loves you. Why can’t you share His love with others? For the light that shines should be all over in each one of you. Maybe some of you will love each other enough to share that light with the ones that don’t have it yet? Don’t be selfish, for my Son’s life, death and resurrection were for all of you. He was not selfish. So please, follow the examples He has given you.”

“Here is my story on the pictures of Our Blessed Mother. On July 21, 1992, I was on the tractor mowing the field. I had started at about 3:00 pm. I was almost finished mowing at around 5:30 pm when Jon Lombardi and Tony Fernwalt drove into the field and parked near their usual spot. We waved hello to each other. I was mowing down at the south end of the field, so we were probably over 100 yards apart from each other. I was still on the tractor when I saw Tony start taking pictures with a Polaroid camera. He had been doing this quite a bit lately. He told me that the Virgin Mary had said that she would show herself in a picture.

I guess that they had taken several pictures when I drove by to say hi. I got down off the tractor and asked them what they were doing. Tony said they were taking pictures of the sun. I asked if anything had shown up on the them, and they told me that nothing had –and they showed me the blank pictures. Then Tony handed me the camera and told me to try and take one. I asked how he was doing it, and he told me just to point the Polaroid camera at the sun and take a picture, so that is what I did. I gave the camera back to Tony, the picture still in the slot where it comes out. Tony took the picture out and set it on the seat in Jon’s car, and then, he handed the camera to Jon, so he could take a picture too. I told them that I was going to finish mowing and put the tractor away. I would be back to pray the Rosary. By then, Jon had taken a couple more Polaroid pictures and put them in the car, too.

I had walked 20 to 25 yards away when Jon and Tony started screaming for me to come back and look at the picture. I came back, and Jon started showing me the picture that I had just taken. It wasn’t quite finished developing yet but the image in the picture was very obvious to us. Then, either Tony or Jon looked at the pictures that Jon took after the one that I had taken, and Mary had shown herself in these two pictures also. Then things got pretty hysterical. It was quite an event. Jon did think to write on the pictures the date and time that the pictures were taken.

To me, these pictures are a miracle allowed to happen through the will of God. I have shown these pictures to many people. Some believe in the miracle of the pictures, and many choose not to believe. I understand both opinions very well because I was also a very passive participant in my faith for a long time. In previous years, I was shown other pictures from apparition sites from around the world, and I decided that anybody could fake something like that. Obviously, my thinking has changed quite a bit. There is one saying that keeps coming to mind, ‘To those that believe no proof is needed. To those that do not believe, no proof is enough.” (David E. Pfeiffer, Wadsworth, Ohio)

“In August of 1992, I stopped by the field in the afternoon to plant some mums. I met another carload of people who had heard about the Field. Again, remembering all my questions the first time I had arrived there, I patiently answered them and showed them my photo album in the trunk of my car. Before long, I began noticing people starting to arrive for the evening’s apparition and prayers. All at once, a woman tapped me on the shoulder and yelled at me to turn and look at the sun. I looked and then immediately flinched at the absurdity of her command. I thought, “This woman’s crazy, yelling at me to stare at the sun!” But she would not take no for an answer. This time, the woman grabbed my arm, and swung me partly around since my back was facing the sun.

When I turned again, I couldn’t believe my eyes. The sun itself was pulsating like it was going to jump out of the sky. Then it started to spin, then pulse, then spin, then pulse. People were pointing, staring or kneeling in awe as I grabbed my camera to try and record the event. I realized that I couldn’t capture the motion with a 35mm camera, but that was the only camera I had, and I snapped the picture anyway. My tennis partner, who had never been to the field before, stood next to me watching the sun spin and pulse. All he could say was, “Holy cow.”

On August 27, 1992, after six months of daily apparitions, the public messages stopped with this last message:
“Dear Children: I have come to you for a while. I have told you many things, yet you did not listen. I came here thinking many of you would turn your soul and life over to My Son, Jesus. I will not give warning to you. I will be silent for a while, then maybe you will understand. I will talk again to you through Anthony on September 30, 1992. Please read and listen to My Son and I thank you for listening. God bless all of you.”

She continued Her daily apparitions to the visionary and on September 30, 1992, a huge crowd waited to hear Her message. At the end of the message, She told us She would send another public message on October l5 and November l5, 1992. Her October l5 message was,
“Dear Children, I call upon all of you to turn your life to My Son, Jesus. Turn your life towards God. Guide one another hand in hand. Many times, you cry out to us. Now I cry out to you, so you may see the Kingdom of God. Satan and his evil are so strong in the world today. I have asked repeatedly throughout the world to fill God’s House to where it is overflowing to the point to which crowds will be standing outside. Many of you must realize I have said before that My Son and I are always with you. Many times, you cry out and we hear. It seems many will gather to hear my words, but yet, they do not want to listen. All of you must pray. I have told you of many things but the greatest thing I can tell you is that I love all of you. Come closer, come closer. Ask Jesus to really take over your life. Ask Him to really make yourself whole inside. Ask Him and let Him know that your will is weak, and ask Him and let Him know that you want Him to control your will, to bring your will into His loving arms. Cry out that you are a sinner and really need to be forgiven. Ask Him to lead you His way and not your way. Cry out! Cry out, my dear children, for the love of God to come upon you. In the beginning, I told you what would happen, and you did not believe. Many say their faith is strong. Many believe their faith is strong but in an instant your faith can be shaken. So how strong is your faith? How strong is your love? You must stand up and be firm, be counted. Glorify God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. I call on you to fill God’s House. I call on you not to be ashamed in public. If you are out eating, say your grace as if you were at home. If you are out and you feel you need to pray, then stop and pray as if you were at home. I call upon you to pray for Pope John Paul II. I call upon you to pray for all the cardinals, bishops, chancellors, priests, sisters and all that believe. You must realize your prayers can change the world. You must realize that love can change the world. God’s love and My Son Jesus’s love changed the world. You, through prayer and love, can change the world. If someone criticizes you or if someone would smack you, what should you do? Do not argue back. Do not fight back, Just show love. My Son could have fought for His life. My Son could have given up and quit. My Son could have walked away. He did not, because of His love for God and you. So, my children, please come forward to God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. How My heart aches to see what is happening throughout the world, and how many are turning away from God. I call on you to show your love back. I call on you to show your true love. Only if the whole world would pray and love; they would just begin to see what the Kingdom of God is really like. My tears are of sadness. I wish they were of joy. My Son’s Heart is broken. Through your praying, through your love and through giving your heart to Jesus, His heart can mend, then mine will mend too. Only each and every one of you can make that choice to mend His Heart and my heart. Many of you have set forth with your life towards My Son. Yes, you have fought many battles within yourself and you have fought many battles outside of yourself and you will continue to fight many battles from the outside for my Son. You know that He will also fight for you. For the ones that do not understand, fighting means persecution for believing in my Son, Jesus. This does not mean physical fighting, this means fighting temptations from Satan. Temptations from many things. What is temptation? It could be politics, greed of money, greed for sex, greed for luxuries, greed for control and one of the most powerful, greed of gossip and greed of excuses, the greed of lying, the greed of hatred, the greed of wantonness. Why don’t you greed for the way they want you to live? I say to you, make “His House” overflowing. Grow in your faith. Be proud that you believe. Yes, I love every one of you for my love is pure, and I was given this pure love from God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. You, too, can be given this pure love. All you have to do is ask and then live what my Son has asked you to do through His words and deeds. Thank you for listening and God Bless all of you.”

“Dear Children, you hear the words, “pray, get prepared, conversions” and some of you wonder what I mean. Get prepared means that the light within your soul must be able to shine in the darkness. For my Son will be able to see your light. This will be part of your candle when the days are dark. But you must remember, giving your total life to my Son will make you glow very brightly. You must get prepared, for all prophecies must come true. To pray means that you must ask for help and guidance. This way your life will be able to be intertwined with my Son. You must realize if your life does not intertwine with His, it will be lost. Conversion is something all of you must think of. Don’t hold my Son just inside of yourself or a small group. You must go out as my Son sent his disciples out and spread his message all over, to all people, not to just a few. This way when all mankind hears of my Son then the prophecies will be fulfilled. Thank you for listening. God bless you.”

“Dear Children, I want all of you to realize the true life is through my Son, Jesus. When you need my Son in your deepest hours, you cry out to Him. But, yet, when things are okay for all of you, you forget to cry out for Him. Why? Where does your weakness begin and end in your faith? You should have no weakness . . . just true faith. My Son showed God the Father the faith He wants you to have. Have you really prayed from your soul and heart today? You should pray as though you need my Son Jesus all the time because you really do! Try not to look upon yourselves and think you only need My Son when you need help. Search again as you should look all day for My Son within yourself. Your life should intertwine with Jesus. Pray . . . Pray . . . Pray. Go to Mass, Confession, Communion, do penance and good deeds. Pray that God the Father, and God the Son come swiftly and justly. Pray that when you see my Son, Jesus you will be able to say to Him, I am glad you have come. For many will hide in their darkness. Many will be like the tree that bears no fruit. But remember, the candle that is lit and shines there most is in your soul, for when it is dark that will be the brightest light. There will come a time when only your light will protect you, for it will be the candle within you. So, search out the Kingdom of God through my Son, Christ Jesus, for all of you should stand up with glory to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. For soon, you will not have to worry about the immoral ones. Many of you say, “What date will be that?” But, as I said before . . . no dates shall be given, for if you know a date then you would live only for that date, then upon that date you would fall upon your knees and pray. And please, when you do pray, stop asking for petty things. You should ask that My Son would guide you . . . that’s all you need in your life. Jesus is all you need to be prepared. So, I close by saying, ‘Be prepared . . . be prepared . . . be prepared. Pray! Pray! Pray!’ Thank you for listening. God bless you.”

“Anthony, therefore, when you see the flow from the place I have told you, you’ll know that it will be right. But the day the lady slipped and almost fell, it was her faith that brought her to the spring. Even though she was weak, she will be strong. So, from that day forward, the power of the water has been there. Not the power of muscle but the power of faith. Now let My spring flow as all the faith will flow towards My Son Jesus as it will flow toward God, the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. So, prepare for when they flock to the spring. All of you must help for tomorrow the children will know. They will have their signs in the water. They will have their signs in the spring. They will have their God and their hearts once again. Proclaim, so that when you are not here, people will still have faith, still see the flow, and see the Kingdom of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.”

“My dear children, blessed are the ones that do no see and believe. Their rewards will be great in the Kingdom of God. How would you feel if your sight was taken from you? Would you believe that someone would help you around? Would you believe that someone would guide you so that if you would fall, they could help you up? Seek the true meaning of blind faith. Ask My Son Jesus to help you and to guide you throughout each day — for one day you may be able to say, ‘I have blind faith.’ Thank you for listening and God bless you.”

November 20, 1992
“My dear children, you think that each day is a gift from God. It is! Many things throughout your life have been gifts. My Son Jesus was and is the greatest gift of all. What gift have you given? Thank you for listening and God bless you.”

“My dear children, when you look deep inside yourself, what do you really see? Do you see yourself as just a human being? Or do you see yourself as a creation of God? When you look inside yourself, do you see a person with free will, or do you see a person trying to do God’s will? Do you know and understand God’s will? Do you know and understand My Son Jesus’ will? Do you understand God’s love? Do you understand My Son’s love? Thank you for listening and God bless you.”

“Dear children, if a child comes to heaven, why do you still feel sorrowful? Praise God because that child is in heaven. Feel no sorrow because all the children are safe. Now have you opened your eyes? I guess not. Why do you feel sorrow at times? Remember you are human; you need to be spiritual. You need to pray for stronger faith. You need to really believe. Poor souls, you are so weak. Don’t you understand that God is love. Seek nothing but God!”

June 5, 1992 (Wadsworth, Ohio)
“My dear children, remember your prayers are to Jesus. But I also intercede for you. Many people think this may be wrong. Many of you criticize other religions. Never criticize anybody else’s religion. I want all of you to pray to ask that My Son Jesus will help you and guide you in the hard times that you may have throughout your life. Many of you are disciples, but many of you only act as disciples. Do not act, be! Many times, I’ve asked and demanded from you to not be weak. Be strong or else you will be divided by doubts. I ask you to humble yourself before God and to accept the guidance that you have received and to pick up My Son’s cross. Thank you for listening. God bless you.”

August 21, 1992
“Dear children, you come to My Son and I with love. But, yet, many of you do not follow what My Son has said about love. If you would read My Son’s words, you would understand. I come with love for you, hoping that, in turn, you will show love to My Son. I come with love for all of you to prepare you for My Son. When He returns, not only do I want you prepared in strong faith and with your life intertwined with His, but I also want you full of love. I have been coming here for just a short while and yet many have not heeded my warnings, so one day, if I show no more, what will the last ones do? All of you are given a chance in life — whether it is for My Son, Jesus or for yourself. It seems like many, though, throughout the world have not chosen My Son. Many travel throughout the world to places where I have come. If only twice that many would come to My Son. He is sad to see the world as it is with sin, anger, lust, greed. His heart is really broken! For sin is greater now than it has ever been. Now is the time to fall on your knees and ask My Son to guide you throughout each day. Have your personal conversion, your private conversion now. Take off your masks, you lonely children, and see the brightness in My Son. I say to you, through Christ Jesus, you may enter into the Kingdom of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Prepare, prepare, prepare. Pray, pray, pray, for it will be like a twinkling of the eye, and it will be swift and just and He will come with the Glory of God. He will come with all the angels and the saints. Christ, Jesus, will come again. Thank you for listening and God bless all of you.”

“My dear children … life. As I have told you, life begins at conception. And death, as you know, should come from the hand of God only. The problem is that so many are turning against God. So many think they can choose life or death. So many will argue that life does not begin until birth, and it is okay to end a life. They say that if someone is old or sick, they should have the right to end their life. Many countries throughout the world give you papers to fill out when you are sick where they can let you or someone else end a life. Many will say that all that they do is just, that it is right. The many that have had their lives taken (because they signed a paper), have not realized the harm they have caused in their souls. The world is turning away from God. Many will say things about God and My Son Jesus, to turn you away from them. They will do this by words or actions. What is life like without God? Would you be here? Which way do you plan for your true life? How would you prepare for a stranger? Would you prepare for Him as a king, or would you find a way to turn Him away? Can you prepare yourselves or will you need help? For your decision will be forever. Seek God. Seek My Son Jesus. Seek the priest. Then maybe you can seek inside. Life belongs to God. No one can ever make a decision on death or life, but yet everyday in the world many people do. For they do not follow God. They do not follow My Son Jesus. Will you follow them? Will you shout kill, kill, kill? Would you hold a child in your arms? You must let everyone know and defend to the fullest your faith in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. For no one has the right to choose for someone else, life or death. Are you one of the ones that can make that decision? But then, ask yourself what would have happened if someone chose for you not to have lived. Thank you for listening. God bless you.”

“My dear children, I call upon all of you to bring My Son, Jesus Christ, closer to your hearts and to your lives. The urgency that I have called upon the world is not for just a few but for all. My time has been shortened on my visits to all throughout the world. Soon I will return to the Kingdom of God. I have asked very simple things from all of you children: Mass, Confession, Communion, Penance, good deeds, love one another, love your enemies. Pray, Pray Pray. Get prepared, get prepared, get prepared. How many have really listened? How many have read My Son’s words? Many of you have searched very deeply within yourselves, and you’ve been guided towards God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Many of you suffer daily for My Son Jesus. Many have given their lives for My Son. Many have given their lives up for My Son. Realize the urgency throughout the world. Satan has a hold upon so many children. He is leading them to destruction. Realize Satan can and will deceive many. I call upon you in these times to return to My Son, to return to His most loving and merciful heart. Call upon God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. Plead to them for forgiveness. Plead to them for help. I want to ask all of you who truly believe to reach out and help the ones that are weak or have no faith. Ask them if you could help them. Love means many things. Love is not cruel, love is patient. Love is not hurting, love is mending. Love is not fighting, love is peace. Love is not killing, love is healing. Love is not blind, love sees the beauty. Love is not hard, love is gentle. Love is not dark, love is bright. Love is not a stranger, love is known. Love is happiness. Love is warmth. Love is God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. I pour my love upon you and the ones that are not here, for love is free. Through My Son Jesus, He will give you and show you all the purest love you shall ever know. My Son Jesus loves all. His most loving and merciful heart is open to everyone of you. My heart is full of love for all my children which is everyone upon the earth. Search, search, search, for the true love and true light, the true Trinity of God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. I close in saying to you my time with you is very short. Soon you must draw on your faith alone. Remember, there will always be someone to help you. Fear not, for when I am gone, I will still be with all of you. But, most of all, have My Son Jesus in you. Conversion is a must. Pray for all sinners. Pray for the world. Pray to My Son, Jesus. Please love one another as My Son loves you. Thank you for listening. God bless you.”

“Anthony, as I told you in the beginning, woe to the politicians that will be elected for they will be immoral. But woe also to the ones who cast their votes for them. What came to their mind? They thought of riches. They thought it would be better. As it is said, destruction is within oneself. Destruction is the lust of money. Destruction is lack of God. Woe to the ones who do not believe in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, for they cannot serve God and man. For many will suffer eternally. Many will serve God in the glory of His Kingdom.”

“Anthony, as of today, you will find all that I have told you will soon start. Your country has truly become immoral and a Godless nation. As your President has signed the papers to legalize the killing of the innocent, there is no one to blame for what will come from this signing. No one to blame but the ones who cast their vote for him. They will also have to worry about judgement. Many talked as if it came from their hearts, but it did not come from their souls. They were for greed. How can anyone sit and listen and do nothing to try to change what has happened? Many will be upset that you speak out against the leaders of your country. Even my Pope John Paul II will speak out. I ask that you rise up again and speak out against the signing. Your country is immoral and godless, for those who say they are with My Son have shied away. The turmoil will soon begin. It will be hard for the faithful. It will be hard for the ones who do not believe also. The storms will be of nature and man. Many have brought it upon your country and the world. Yet, many are afraid to fight back and be heard. They are scared to be seen but they are scared of man. They are scared of man. They will make excuses for why they cannot stand. Their excuses will be forever. Fear no man; only fear God. Those who are afraid of man should think more of being afraid of God. My Son came upon this earth as a human and suffered for each and every one but how many will suffer for Him? Even in the world today, they would crucify Him. They would still spit upon Him, beat Him and kill Him. So, who will stand up for Him? Who will stand up for My Son? You must realize many will say that they will, but they won’t. Many will say that they will do it this way or that way, but they won’t. How will they survive with their souls if they do not stand up for God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit?”

“Dear children, I came here to let you know that the way the world is going is not good. If all of you would really pray, you will be able to divert the war that has not come yet — but will soon start as all nations will be involved. I want you all to pray in the weeks and months to come. If your prayers are not strong and sincere, this will happen.”

Patrick’s Miracle (Good Friday, 1993)
We will always remember Good Friday, 1993, as the beginning of a frightening trauma that led to a Blessed miracle. Patrick (13) and his twin brother Michael were playing with friends and BB guns, when Michael accidently shot Pat in the eye. Knowing I was at a church service, they ran to a neighbor’s home. The neighbor drove Pat to the hospital and her husband drove Mike to get me. The ride to the hospital seemed endless as Mike recounted the story over and over through his tears. The panic I felt within was difficult to retain. At the hospital emergency room, they told me they had to call in a specialist and admitted Pat. The specialist reported that he had intra renal and preretinal hemorrhage as well as a choroidal rupture of the retina. Nothing could be done for Pat then because of the recurrent bleeding. They patched both eyes and he had to remain upright (even to sleep) and quiet. Having been familiar with Christ in the Hills and the Healing Spring, we made the trip for water. We began putting the water in his eye and prayed with him. Each time he drank the water, we prayed an Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and asked that God’s will be done in our lives. Having been told by the doctor that they probably could save the eye but not his sight, we knew we needed God’s grace, mercy and strength in handling whatever happened. Due to the severity of his retinal and choroid injury, our eye specialist consulted with another specialist. Knowing that Our Blessed Mother was interceding for us and having surrendered the outcome totally to God, we felt at peace. Three weeks after the accident, Pat’s eye was totally healed and his vision returned to normal. We thank God and our Blessed Mother for such a wonderful miracle in our lives. Two specialists examined Pat’s eye, Dr. Fammartino and Dr. Richard L. Fuller. Dr. Fuller of The Perry Eye Clinic who diagnosed that Pat had intrarenal and preretinal hemorrhage as well as a choroidal rupture in the nasal aspect of the retina, wrote to the family after his remarkable healing. “Miracles never cease when one has faith in God and prayers”.

“Anthony, I ask you to still slowly pull yourself back. Soon, when I am gone, I ask you to read what I have told you. Soon all will have to be dependant on my Son Jesus and His words. Realize that I love you but soon I will be leaving. I call upon all to be strong. I call upon all to pray. Follow My Son. Ask Him to help you, to guide you, to forgive you. I have come to you to prepare many of the children that will come. You, as well as your family, need to prepare spiritually. Soon I will be leaving. Do as I have asked. Do as though it’s been done. I ask you to go to your priest tonight to have him lay his hands and pray over you. Thank you for listening. God bless you.”

On March 26, 1995, Jesus appeared to Tony in Our Lady of the North American Martyrs Church in Barberton. Tony states that when Jesus appears, the tabernacle radiates with light, and His form comes from within the tabernacle. He stands on a cloud of bright light and wears a robe of glowing white. His eyes and hair are brown. Rays of light emanate from the open tabernacle. His messages to Tony emphasize the absolute necessity of sacramental confession:

“People go to confession and do not confess their deepest sins. Unconfessed sins are not forgiven. One day they will be revealed to everyone. Only sins that are fully confessed are totally washed away. They no longer exist. There are those who receive the Holy Eucharist without making a truthful confession or having real sorrow for their sins. This is an even deeper sin.”

“I am truly My Father’s Tabernacle. I am truly your Tabernacle. I am also present, physically, in every tabernacle throughout the world.”

“Listen to the teachings of Pope John Paul II. Read Scripture. Return to church. Pray for the Pope, bishops, priests, and religious. Love your spouse and children. Imitate the Holy Family of Nazareth.”

“Evil grows fast. It is the responsibility of every citizen – not just the government – to help the poor. Love one another. Respect one another. Do not judge one another.”
