Pope Francis establishes this as the Year of Extraordinary Mercy which began Dec. 2015, the Feast of the Immaculate Heart, to the Feast of Jesus King in November of 2016.
February 13, 2016, for the first time ever, we are given by God through Vassula Rhyden (Fr. Santan Pinto a SOLT Priest known for his sanctity and miracles, introduced us to her in the late 1990's) an urgent prayer announcing that humanity is at the time for God's Merciful Justice and Judgment and with the prayer He gives us we can hold back the "angels of destruction" of the book of revelation that have been waiting for all the "saints to be sealed by God" before they distribute God's justice upon the earth (an event Christendom has been awaiting since the time and announcement from St. Paul and St. John the Apostle.) The prayer alludes to a global explosion of some sort which we are asking God, Who alone can, to intervene and protect us. The intermediary judgment is a fixed event (see Fr. Joseph Ianuzzi's book "the Triumph of God's Kingdom in the New millennium and End Times"), but the tribulation that surrounds it is not, and if it comes through the hand of man it will be a thing with no mercy, but if it comes from the hand of God, Who is Love, His mercy will mitigate it, so this is what we pray for and Father wants it so much that He is practically begging us to say it and assures those who do His Blessing and Jesus also assures those who have been merciful to the Words of the Holy Spirit through His messengers and prophets of these times to not be afraid for the Judgment coming is not something to dread for them. It is in fact, their deliverance.
Abbacasita's Divine Mercy Sunday inspired reflection...
May 30, 1998:
Father, please bless and protect this work of yours. Now and always. Amen.
I am here.
I know, Father.
Smile, little one. Today is a wondrous day. Sing praises to your God and Father. Rejoice, child. Much has been accomplished through My chosen ones. They have done well and their work is pleasing in My eyes. ... Renew your enthusiasm for this work, little one. ...See the dust of battle? See the horses’ hooves. Hear the cries of My children?
Yes, Father. It is a battle scene.
Where lies the answer, daughter?
In finding You, Father. We must find You.
Lift up the Standard, Barbara Rose. Lift it on high so all may see—then come to Me so they may follow you home to Me in these times. So many are lost in the chaos and debris. Do you understand?
Yes, Father. I see the symbolism of it. But what in practical terms do you want me to do?
See Me, little one. See and hear Me in all you do. I am with you. And where you go, I am also—bring me to those you love, those you have befriended, and those you have yet to meet. Tell them I am real! Speak openly that they are true children of God their Father—not only in name, but in reality—in Truth, My Truth. The implications of this should send shock waves around the world. This is not fiction. This is not pretend games. This is not a joke. I AM! And you are My little ones—chosen to be with Me for all eternity—in My Heart, in My Kingdom—home with Me. ...
Behold, I make all things new through sacrifice freely given. To you I send the Holy Spirit so that I may be with you always. With Me and in Me for all time. In this place, in this time, I am earnestly calling My children to Me. Take note, there will be no more invitation as this. The day of the Lord is at hand. Make ready. Prepare. All is in the Lord your God. Choose. Do you remain in Me or outside of Me? To be, you must “be” in your God!
Now fashion yourself a Crown of Prayer with My Chaplet. Arraign yourself in the beauty and splendor of your Father. Prepare for the feast that is yet to come. Someday all will know. Have faith in these dark times and believe. The hand of God is upon you. Peace, little one. My Peace.
Jer 7:13—Obstinate in their sins. God will create desolation. He won’t hear the words of the prophet for them.
