Dear Family of Mary!

"You, my children, my dear apostles, you are always gathering around me anew, because you are thirsty. You thirst for peace, love and happiness. Drink out of my hands. My hands are offering to you my Son who is the spring of clear water. He will bring your faith back to life and purify your hearts, because my Son loves pure hearts and pure hearts love my Son. Only pure hearts are humble and have firm faith. I ask for such hearts of you, my children." (October 2, 2014)

Our Lady knows us through and through. She knows that we are thirsty. We long for peace, for love and happiness. We are built to desire these things because they are good. But in this day and age, many, many people are looking for peace, love and happiness in the wrong places. They think these beautiful gifts will come to them by their own efforts, without God. They often are attracted to New Age philosophies and practices, thinking they will find these good things through them. The New Age promises them they will.

Recently, Denis and I had the opportunity to meet with and interview Moira Noonan, O.S.B. Oblate, a writer and speaker who explains the deeper meaning and influence of the New Age Movement to Christians, to clear up the deceptions being offered to them. Moira shows very clearly how the New age offers muddy, dirty water to those who thirst. It offers a counterfeit road to peace and love. (see info below on Moira's books)

Our Lady in this message is trying to direct us to the true source of peace and love and happiness. She is offering us the "Spring of Clear Water" which gushes forth from the Heart of her Son. She wants to give us the clear water of Jesus. And so she tells us: "Drink out of my hands. My hands are offering to you my Son who is the spring of clear water."

When we drink from the Spring of Clear Water, Jesus, we will be brought back to life! "He will bring your faith back to life and purify your hearts..." This is exactly what happens when we return to Jesus. Through His mercy and forgiveness we are given back our lives, and our sins are washed away. We have a new start. Confession is the place where we can best meet Jesus and begin to drink again deeply of the clear water. This Sacrament is a resurrection sacrament!!

Through Confession our hearts are purified. Muddy water cannot purify anything. But the Water that comes from Jesus can clean even the most impure heart and make it fresh and new. With a pure heart, a heart that is undivided and totally open to Jesus, we can love! " Son loves pure hearts and pure hearts love my Son..." The lines of communication and love are restored through Jesus' cleansing love, and the soul can again receive life from God.

I was very amazed that Our Lady used the image of the "Spring of Clear Water" in this message. It coincided with our interviews with Moira, which we will share soon on Mary TV. And it also echoes so clearly the document on the dangers of the New Age from the Pontifical Council for Culture and the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue called "Jesus Christ the Bearer of the Water of Life, A Christian Reflection on the "New Age". This document introduces the reader to the main themes of the New Age movement, shows the philosophies and belief systems the underpin them, and explains why a Christian cannot follow these philosophies and practices.

Jesus Christ is the Bearer of the Water of Life!  He is the only source for the "Water of Life"! He is the Spring of Clear Water! He alone can bring us all the good that we seek.

So, how do we drink from Our Lady's hands? I think we open our hearts and listen to her direction. She shows us the way to the Spring of Clear Water, through prayer, the Sacraments, Holy Mass, the Bible and penance and fasting. This is what she offers us from her school, and it brings us to the Spring which is Jesus.

We want the Clear Water!!! Come to the Spring!!

"Whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst; the water that I shall give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." (John 4:14)

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
