St. Rita of Cascia

St. Rita of Cascia says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come to speak to you concerning perseverance. Think of a flower. The roots are firmly planted in the soil of Holy Love. The plant that rises out of the soil is Holy Humility. The leaves that surround the bloom, adding to its beauty, are faith, hope and trust. The flower – the ornament of the whole plant – is perseverance; for it is through all of these other virtues, perseverance blooms. Without Holy Love, Holy Humility, faith, hope and trust, the soul is unable to persevere in prayer or good works. Understand, then, that when you persevere in anything spiritual, all of these virtues are at work.”

St. Rita of Cascia says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“For any soul to persevere in his pursuit of personal holiness, he must be courageous. He must not give in to or listen to Satan's words of discouragement, which lead away from prayer and good works. He must allow Holy Love to be the guardian of his heart in every present moment; thus protecting the soul from distractions.”

“The soul is assaulted in every possible way by his arch-enemy – Satan – through accusations, lies and every sort of temptation. But within the ‘heart of the soul' must be courageous perseverance in Holy Love. This is Christ's weapon and His Victory. If Holy Love is present, perseverance is also present.”

A. M.

St. Rita of Cascia says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“Today I come to point out to you the necessity of perseverance in everyday – moment to moment – holiness. The soul who seeks to walk the spiritual journey of Holy Love must pray for the grace – the virtue – of perseverance in the virtuous life. Without this Heavenly support, the soul will become distracted, even discouraged, along the way.”

“Perseverance is like the dyke which holds back the flood of Satan's attack upon Holy Love in the heart; or it can be likened to a ladder that encourages and assists the soul in climbing the heights of sanctity. Never take perseverance for granted. Petition the Sacred Heart daily for this special virtue which safeguards all the others, and helps the souls to live in the truth.”

“Pray this way:”

“Most Holy Sacred Heart of Jesus, help my heart to persevere in all that is holy. Make me strong in perseverance where I am weak. Never let me become discouraged in pursuing personal holiness. Amen.”

“When you make a soup, the broth becomes part of the vegetables and meat and vice versa. These flavor each other. So it is with perseverance. The virtues are flavored with perseverance, and perseverance becomes part of the virtues. Perseverance holds the virtues together just as the broth embraces the parts of the soup.”

“Or let me put it this way. The mortar that holds the bricks in place, in the house of holiness within the soul, would be perseverance.”

“Perseverance in truth must be in the center of every heart for the soul to progress through the Chambers of the United Hearts.”

“Please understand that every sin is a transgression against Holy Love. It follows, therefore, that every sin is the result of failure to persevere in Holy Love.”

“I want to give you Heavenly understanding of these truths. Such understanding would penetrate your heart and never leave.”

“I tell you, the soul that does not pray for perseverance in the virtuous life is not sincere in his pursuit of personal holiness. No one can hope to persevere in righteousness without Heavenly help. When souls become over-confident in their own capabilities, they are not God-reliant – not trusting and dependent on God's grace.”

“This is how the enemy of every soul captures the present moment and influences thoughts, words and actions. This is the reason evil has crept into the holiest of places – into long trusted institutions, governments, education and media. It is the lapse in perseverance towards personal holiness that is the root cause.”

“People cannot live in the truth if they do not persevere in the truth. Therefore, comprehend that lack of perseverance leads to every sort of compromise.”

“I have come so that all the children of God hear this truth. Perseverance is the mother of all virtue. Therefore, it follows, perseverance is the mother of all holiness.”

“Consider the role that a mother assumes. She is protective, encouraging, nurturing; such is the way perseverance acts in the soul. Mother Perseverance protects the virtuous life by tenaciously guarding each effort in virtue. Through perseverance, the soul is encouraged to practice virtue, even in the most difficult trials. Like a mother, perseverance nurtures the virtuous life, and gives hope in every test or trial.”

“Yes, perseverance deserves the title ‘Mother Perseverance'. Esteem her as such.”

St. Rita of Cascia says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“Please listen now as I confide to you how perseverance played a role in my life. It was Mother Perseverance which gave me the courage to pray and to continue to pray. My prayers moved the Heart of Jesus to convert warring parties in Cascia. Feuds were resolved. Through prayer, Jesus converted my husband and my twin sons – just in time.”

“Mother Perseverance asked me to trust in my calling to the religious life; for all trust in God is the fruit of persevering hope.”

“When the soul perseveres in prayer, God listens. He never turns away from a trusting heart. So, as I relate to you how Mother Perseverance brought me through life's struggles, I invite each soul to step into this motherly embrace. These days it is difficult to feel secure; but if you persevere in your journey of personal holiness, you will find peace even in the midst of great trials.”

“Persevering prayer can find solutions where there are none. Have hope.”

“Before I close my dialogue with you on Mother Perseverance, I would be derelict if I did not mention a sister virtue to perseverance, which is forbearance. Forbearance is the courageous constraint of emotional reaction in ongoing difficulties. It is the showcase of patience – patient endurance. While perseverance can be practiced interiorly in the virtuous life, forbearance is the outward sign of inner courage in exterior trials.”

“Forbearance is a special gift of grace given to the patient, persevering soul.”

St. Rita of Cascia says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I have come to you today with the final message on perseverance. The Lord God allowed me to come here and to deliver this body of Messages on perseverance, for this Mission has persevered in the face of numerous persecutions. These have come from civil authorities, Church hierarchy, media and the general public. You have been misunderstood, calumnized, rash judged and, yes, even lied about.”

“The sound spirituality offered here is too often overlooked. People who speak negatively about this Mission are given every consideration, while healings and other miracles are summarily dismissed.”

“But through it all, the Mission has grown – even thrived – thanks to the grace of perseverance. So, the Mission will continue to persevere, bringing souls to their knees, changing the course of lives and changing the future of the world through Holy Love.”

“Only evil would oppose such an effort.”

“I have come to state yet again that the more the soul surrenders to God's Divine Will, the deeper his holiness. The journey through the Chambers of the United Hearts is the path of surrender to God's Will.”

“The greatest barrier to this pathway is disordered self-interest, for this is what opens the soul to sin. No sin is committed outside of this inordinate self-love; that is to say, Holy Love opens the heart to recognize sin and to avoid it. Holy Love takes the focus off of self and directs the soul's attention towards God and neighbor. This is God's Divine Will.”

St. Rita of Cascia says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“The heart of the world must be reconciled with the Truth before it can be reconciled with God. People must recognize, once again, that God alone is the Creator of all good. Mankind, of his own accord, can accomplish nothing.”

“Political alliances and false religions are never the answer to peace. Truth, based upon Holy Love, bears the fruit of genuine peace. False promises of peace are no more meritorious than a promise would be of declaring no more natural disasters. Peace has to be rooted in God; for peace of heart comes from God just as peace in your natural surroundings flows from God.”

“Truth, which brings peace, originates in the Heart of the Father; but it must be ignited in the human heart by action of the free will.”

Feast of St. Rita of Cascia
St. Rita of Cascia

St. Rita of Cascia says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“In order to be true instruments of God, you must be instruments of God's Divine Will. God's Will is that you seek continually the Refuge of the United Hearts. This Holy Refuge is accessible only through a movement of your free will. Indeed, your will to enter the Refuge of the United Hearts is the knock on the ‘door' of Mary's Immaculate Heart, Refuge of Holy Love.”

“Through this act of your free will, you cooperate with the Divine Will of God and become God's instruments – His Will in the world.”

“I invite all to see that as I come to you as Patroness of the Impossible [St. Rita], this Ministry has accomplished the impossible. At first, we were ejected from the house where we prayed. We prayed in fields and the woods. Even there, we met with opposition. When we finally were able to acquire this property, the locals opposed our every move and the diocese scrutinized us. Now, we are well established and secure except for the damage of tongues.”

“We must continue courageously as Heaven's conduit of grace and refuge of prayer. All things are possible through prayer – all things. If you do not ask, you may never be living proof of this. The existence of this Ministry here, today, is living proof of courageous faith.”
