THERE seems to be some chronology in the recent messages from Heaven through Catholic mystics. First, there’s the warning that the times are urgent and people have to convert, followed by the caveat that chastisements are coming but still could be assuaged through prayers, fasting, etc., trailed by the admonition for all to prepare physically and spiritually, and then by the call to keep faith through unprecedented trials especially by focusing hopes on Heaven.

The latter is particularly significant in a world facing the apocalypse for having pushed God away and thus creating more than enough playroom for the wily devil and his demons. It’s a call to hold on to faith no matter what, because there is life beyond earth, and everyone is called to a real, true-to-life Heaven. It’s a call to believe that there is life beyond physical death.

Mystical phenomena in our times are not short in boosting such faith. Consider the testimony of Medjugorje visionary, Ivanka Ivankovic-Elez who quoted the Blessed Mother as having told her: “You go to Heaven in full conscience: that which you have now. At the moment of death, you are conscious of the separation of the body and soul. It is false to teach people that you are reborn many times and that you pass to different bodies. One is born only once. The body, drawn from the earth, decomposes after death; it never comes back to life again. Man receives a transfigured body.”

This revelation is stupendous...we go on existing, this time in eternity, after having shed our bodies like cocoons. It’s just that our destination in the next life depends on our choices on earth.

Another account is also from Ivanka whose mother had died two months previous to her first apparition of the Blessed Mother in 1981. She asked where her mother was and the Blessed Mother replied, "She is with me." This, expectedly, was followed by Ivanka's request to see her mother. Then her mother appeared, approached and embraced her while saying "I am proud of you."

The call to keep eyes on the everlasting was again in the message of the Blessed Mother in her message through mystic Pedro Regis on May 31, 2022. The message:

“Dear children, I am your Mother and I love you. I ask you to be faithful to My Son Jesus. He is your everything and without Him you can do nothing.

“Turn away from the world and live turned toward Paradise, for which alone you were created. Do not seek the glories of the world; they exist, but what they offer are temporary things.

“Seek the glories of Heaven, for these will be eternal. Testify with your own lives that you belong to My Jesus.

“You are living in a time of pain, but you are not alone. I am beside you, although you do not see Me. The enemies will unite, and holy things will be scorned. Be attentive. Accept the Gospel, and listen to the teachings of the true Magisterium of the Church of My Jesus. God is making haste.

“ Do not put off what you have to do until tomorrow. Onward without fear! This is the message that I give you today in the name of the Most Holy Trinity. Thank you for having allowed Me to gather you here once more. I bless you in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen. Be at peace.” (End of quote.)

So there. You and I are everlasting and it can be spent in a place where one is rewarded with never-ending happiness, adventure, excitement, etc, all within the bounties and love of God.

Meanwhile, the messages from Heaven continue to pour. On June 6, 2022, our Blessed Mother told stigmatist mystic Luz de Maria de Bonilla:

“I bless you with my love, I bless you with my Fiat. Children, I call you to convert. Some of you are asking yourselves: how do I convert?

“You must decide to turn away from sin, from all that corrupts your spiritual and physical senses, your mind, your thoughts, and all that hardens your heart. You must make a firm decision, having a firm intention to make amends for your possible falls as regards detachment from worldliness, from what is sinful, and from inappropriate habits. The tyranny of the human self is strong when it has been allowed to take hold of the reins of the cravings of the flesh and the senses.

“Convert by turning away from what corrupts you and causes you to be united to what is base and inferior, in which the Devil moves. Sin leads you to deprive yourselves of my Divine Son, and this is very serious, for the result is to deprive yourselves of eternal salvation, if you do not repent.

“Sin means entering the dangerous territory of what is forbidden and inappropriate, where the soul suffers. You have free will, and I see so many of my children constantly falling into the same sin out of foolishness. They say, “I am free, freedom is mine,” and thus they sink into the putrid waters of sin, from which they do not come out due to pride, due to the misuse of free will. Convert! Reflect on how you are, what you do, how you react, how you are towards your brothers and sisters, how you work, and how you behave.

“Children, humanity is in danger and without conversion you are easy prey for evil. Great changes are coming! Modern innovations are coming that destroy the spirituality of my children, causing them to betray my Son. There are so many who feel they are wise but who end up being foolish and falling into vileness. Humanity must change urgently in order for you not to be deceived. Human beings are in a constant process of conversion with an urgent need to be constantly washed of sin.

“As I did the first time, I call you to strengthen yourselves as my Son’s people with fasting, prayer, the Eucharist, and fraternity. As a mother I would like to speak to you only of the grandeur of heaven, but at this moment I must speak of what is approaching and which can cause you to fall.

“You must change now already and be willing to be totally new creatures. Violence is increasing due to human discord, creating chaos in one country and another. This is why I call you to adore my Divine Son, to pray and to be fraternal. You will not succeed in giving what you do not bear within you.

“My children, you need to live in adoration of my Son so that you may pass this on to your brothers and sisters before it is too late. Beloved People of my Son, this is the time to raise your hearts up to my Son; separating yourselves from my Son prevents you from discerning.

“More diseases are coming which are not the Divine Will, but are due to misused science. Pray and use what has been indicated to you.

“Be fraternal and do not permit strife. Unity is urgent; those who live in strife will find themselves alone facing the danger of evil.

“I bless you with my Love; come to my Womb. I remain with my Son’s people. Do not fear: I am protecting you.”
