    Why communist Corona, why communist hidden wars and lockdowns, famine.... or Why Big Billionaires loot common people and governments tax payers money through so called vaccines..... God the Father September 16, 2021 Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says: “Children, every soul ever born into the world goes through his life, passion and death. The choices he makes and his relationship with Me – his Creator – determines his eternal destination. I do not make this choice for the soul. The soul chooses himself. As he stands before My Son* in judgment, he knows where he will be going.” ....... “Live according to the path of Holy Love. Respect and abide by My Commandments.** In charity, pray for one another before the soul is born into the world and during his life on earth and even after his death. Be generous with your prayers. In so doing, I will be generous with the graces I send to you.”....... “Most people live as though I do not exist. This is why you have wars, disease and hunger amongst you. Through these Messages* and this Shrine,** I am trying to capture the attention of the human race. Assist Me in My efforts by evangelizing these Messages.” ....... Read 1 John 3:19 * The Messages of Holy and Divine Love at Maranatha Spring and Shrine.
