1  Forums / Saints' & Spiritual Life General Discussion / Your Prelate: Prophesy Fulfilled on: August 23, 2019, 10:58:21 AM
Dear Shin,

Praised be Jesus and Mary!

I am back with you on this forum to share with you--and with great gladness!--that I have found He whom you have in your past posts wondered about and so heavily promoted:  the Prelate Who will bring the catastrophe of our present age to its relief/solution.  His name is His Lordship Bishop Donald Jacob Sanborn.  He is Rector of Most Holy Trinity Seminary and Priest of the highest rank of Holy Orders, universal Shepherd of souls, in the Order of the High Priest Melchizedek. 

His Lordship Donald Sanborn and His Most Holy Trinity Seminary priests are so noble, so unlike their contemporaries of our day, that I do not doubt that when you make a visit--if only via computer--you will see for yourself, as in a mirror, that I am not "off the mark" in my judgment.

His Lordship Donald Sanborn is forming priests to serve our God, to bring we the faithful into fortified unity under Them, in the unity of the Most Holy Trinity, under His Lordship's spiritual rule and care, for the unification of the true Church, all of God's faithful who have been without a true Shepherd for 51 years of the Great Apostasy.

I pray that your heart will be open to receive His Lordship Donald Sanborn and His seminary priests with gladness and with an open heart of good, fertile soil, to the reception of the unction of the Holy Ghost within your soul.

You have my best wishes, in Mary Immaculate Queen,
Kathryn Marie

Good night!

I wouldn't be concerned! Generally speaking it's not necessary to add square brackets when quoting and using . . . as it's already understood. Square brackets are rarely seen.

I do intend to stylistically correct them to be . . . rather than .... as that is the standard style used throughout the site.

In my English Grammar book it says to use an ellipses of 3 periods in between words and an ellipses of 4 periods in between sentences.  For this reason I used an ellipses of 4 periods in between sentences with missing content.

Here is one example:

'Before all see that thou keep in subjection thy flesh and the influences of the world. Mortifying thy flesh and flying the world by retiring from creatures to the interior of thy soul, thus conquering both these enemies and preserving the blessed light of grace, which thou there receivest, and loving nothing except in as far as well ordered charity permits....Consent not to any movement of thy appetites, no matter in how small a matter; and allow thy senses no liberty, except for the exaltation of the Most High, or for suffering or for doing something for the benefit and love of thy neighbor....Arm thyself with living faith, unwavering hope and love of humility, for these are the virtues by which the dragon is crushed and vanquished and against which he dares not make a stand. He flies from them because they are powerful weapons against his pride and arrogance.'

Our Lady to Ven. Mary of Agreda, Mystical City of God, Vol. III, 297

The ellipses should be in brackets because they are not part of the book's original text but were added by me.  Good night!  Time for me to get some sleep.

You're welcome, Shin!  You know, I used ellipses throughout MCG without placing them in brackets where they should belong, seeing the ellipses were added to the text by me and were not part of the original text.  Perhaps all the ellipses should be corrected too by having them set in brackets.

'I will give thee two important lessons deducted from this chapter. First, love solitude and seek it with particular affection in order that thou mayest partake of the blessings promised and merited by my divine Son for those who imitate Him therein. As far as possible, when thou art not obliged to converse with thy neighbor in virtue of obedience always try to be alone; and when thou art obliged to come out of thy retirement and solitude, carry it with thee in the secret of thy heart in such a manner that thy senses and thy occupations shall not deprive thee of it. Attend to they outward employments as if they were to be done only in passing, and consider thy retirement as something which is to be permanent; for this purpose thou must not allow the images of creatures to enter thy mind, for, very often, they occupy the mind more completely than the objects themselves, and they always embarrass the soul and take away from it the liberty of the heart. It is unworthy of thee to let thy heart be interested in anything or be taken up by any creature. My divine Son wishes to be in it all alone and this is also what I desire. My second lesson is that thou learn to set a proper value on thy soul, in order to preserve it in its purity and innocence. Over and above this, however, although it is my will that thou labor for the justification of all men, I wish that thou, in imitation of my Son and of me, busy thyself especially with the poor and despised of this world. These little ones often beg for the bread of counsel and instruction (Thren. 4, 4), and they find none to give it to them, as do the rich and powerful of the earth who have many to advise them. Of these poor and despised ones many come to thee; admit them with true compassion; console them kindly, so that, in their simplicity, they may follow enlightened counsel; for counsel is to be instructed to the better instructed in a different way. Seek to gain those souls, who, on account of their temporal necessities, are so much the more precious in the eyes of God; I wish that thou labor incessantly, that they and all others may not waste the fruit of Redemption; nor do thou ever rest from this labor; be ready even to die, if necessary, to advance this enterprise.'

'As soon as the great Lady understood that our Redeemer was on the way to the desert to fulfil his intention, She locked the doors of her dwelling, without letting anyone know of her presence; and her retirement during the time of our Lord's fast was so complete, that her neighbors thought that She left with her divine Son. She entered in her oratory and remained there for forty days and nights without ever leaving it and without eating anything, just as She knew was done by her most holy Son. She entered into the oratory and remained there for forty days and nights without ever leaving it and without eating anything, just as She knew was done by her most holy Son. Both of them observed the same course of rigorous fasting. In all his prayers and exercises, his prostrations and genuflections She followed our Savior, not omitting any of them; moreover She performed them just at the same time; for, leaving aside all other occupations, She thus profited by the information obtained from the angels and by that other knowledge, which I have already described. Whether He was present or not, She knew the interior operations of the soul of Christ. All his bodily movements, which She had been wont to perceive with her own senses, She now knew by intellectual vision or through her holy angels.'

I am well, Shin.  Thank you so much for asking!  I've been reading my MCG and am now on the first chapter of Vol. III.  I've been following the Eastertide meditations from Saints' Books and working with meditations from two other books.  I use these three meditation books to help me when I pray and they do help me a lot, because they are most excellent books--every one of them.  Are you working with any books during your prayer time?  Shin, I do hope that you are praying at least 30 min. of mental prayer daily.  I myself can pray a lot more than 30 min. because of my schedule and because my prayer duties are my most important duties in the day.  I think that we can agree that we should all be praying assiduously for the glorification of God's Name and for the salvation of souls.

'Although the pains caused by the wounding [of the Infant Jesus's Circumcision] were most severe, as well on account of the delicacy of his body as on account of the coarseness of the knife, which was made of flint, yet his tears were not so much caused by the sensible pain as by the supernatural sorrow caused by his knowledge of the hard-heartedness of mortals.  For this was more rude and unyielding than the flint, resisting his sweetest love and the divine fire he has come to enkindle in the world and in the hearts of the faithful (Luke 12, 49).  Also the tender and affectionate Mother wept, like the guileless sheep, which raises its voice in unison with the innocent lamb.'

Ven. Mary of Agreda, Mystical City of God, Vol. II, 534



Hard-heartedness is so cruel, and so evil!  Woe to the hard-hearted who refuse to repent!

'The tender love of the heavenly Mother is beyond all comprehension or understanding of man; for her natural love was greater than any other mother was capable of, and her supernatural love exceeded that of all the angels and saints together.  Her reverence and worship cannot be compared with that of any other created being.'

Ven. Mary of Agreda, Mystical City of God, Vol. II, 536





What a Mother!!--and to think that she is ours!!  Let us not disappoint her!

It's a pity that few souls hear our Lady's instruction and that few souls who do hear her instruction care to follow it!  She is our model and teacher.  May we each imitate her and follow her instruction so that we can be very pleasing to her and so that we will have true devotion to her.  We can't have true devotion to Mary if we offend her by ignoring her words and example.  God bless you!

'Hear me, my daughter, and bend thy ears to these counsels and doctrines of eternal life.  Cast out from they faculties every image and affection toward human creatures and turn all the powers of thy heart and soul toward the mysteries and blessings of the Redemption.  Occupy thyself wholly with them, ponder and weigh them, give thanks for them as if thou alone wert in existance, as if they had been wrought solely for thee, and singly for each human being in particular (Gal. 2, 20).  Thus thou wilt find life and the way of life, proceeding thus thou canst not err; but thou shalt find therein the light of thy eyes and true peace.'

'Ponder, then, dearest, upon the small return given for the love of my Son and Lord by mortals, and how forgetful of thanks even his faithful continue to be.  Assume it as thy task, as far as thy weak powers allow, to render satisfaction for this grievous offense:  loving Him, thanking Him and serving Him with all thy powers, for all the other men who fail to do so.  Therefore thou must be an angel in promptitude, most fervent and punctual on all occasions; thou must die to all earthly things, eliminating and crushing all human inclinations and rising upon the wings of love to the heights of love designed for thee by the Lord.'

Our Lady to Ven. Mary of Agreda,  Mystical City of God, Vol. II, 538
