Just Call Him the Orkin Man
Just Call Him the Orkin Man [Podcast](60 Minutes) – A Friend of Medjugorje shares a remarkable encounter that was set up by the hand of Our Lady. This is a manual on how to deal with souls.
Today is Saturday, September 25, 2021, and this is Radio WAVE.
Good evening everyone, and thank you for joining us tonight on Radio WAVE.
Tonight, we have a special broadcast for you, but to begin, we want to begin first with reading Our Lady’s message.
Our Lady’s September 25, 2021 monthly message to the world:
“Dear children! Pray, witness and rejoice with me because the Most High continues to send me to lead you on the way of holiness. Be aware, little children, that life is short and eternity is waiting for you to give glory to God with your being, with all the saints. Little children, do not worry about earthly things, but long for Heaven. Heaven will be your goal and joy will begin to reign in your heart. I am with you and bless all of you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
So, before we begin the broadcast tonight, on September 17th, a Friend of Medjugorje spoke to the Caritas pilgrim group that was here at Caritas. And just a couple of days later, a Friend of Medjugorje, who was not going to be here, today, we were speaking about sharing this encounter that he gave to the pilgrims for tonight’s broadcast for the 25th. And when we read Our Lady’s words today, we were very shocked at how closely he spoke about this message before it was even being given.
Let me just say that, to set up what you’re going to be hearing in this talk that a Friend of Medjugorje gave to our pilgrim group on September 17th, that he was scheduled to speak. And this was their last day, so there was a lot of things we had to take care of before they could leave that evening. And he kept getting delayed and kept getting delayed and kept getting delayed. And I, as the group leader, was a little frustrated because I kept having the pilgrims sitting there waiting for him, and he would pop in every once in a while to show that he was here, but then run out again.
We learned later what was going on with a Friend of Medjugorje. There was a story that Our Lady was writing with him, but there was no indication of that, and from a personal point of view, I was frustrated, and it only increased my amazement in this story that a Friend of Medjugorje told us of what was going on behind the scenes.
And the reason that we’re so touched with Our Lady’s message today is because She talks about witness in today’s message, and a Friend of Medjugorje, when he was given the October 6, 1986 message, “Pray and by your life witness…” and if you do that, you will “…attain what your desire is…” And what is a Friend of Medjugorje’s desire but for great conversions to take place here. This was a commission. We see that. A Friend of Medjugorje has no problem speaking with anyone about Our Lady. Wherever he is, whoever it is, he can just very naturally start a conversation, and then, boom. He just lays Our Lady right there. And it doesn’t matter if they reject her. It doesn’t matter how they respond. He’s only there to plant the seed and then move on with whatever else he was doing that day. But the power of his witness, the assurance that…The confidence that he has with Our Lady, so many times opens people’s hearts.
So, it’s always exciting to hear a Friend of Medjugorje’s encounters. But this one, this one blew us away. And every eye was glued to him the entire time as this unfolded.
So, we’re excited to present this to you, and a Friend of Medjugorje doesn’t do this just because Our Lady commissioned him, but he’s a witness to us, in the Community. He’s a witness to you, out there, of how to be more bold in bringing Our Lady into every encounter that you have. You should take away from this story how you can bring Our Lady to those people that Our Lady brings into your life, and hopefully, you’ll be so inspired by this as we were here, that you’ll be excited to pray and contemplate how you can do that.
When I was speaking with a Friend of Medjugorje on the phone earlier today, we brought up about the particular part of the message where Our Lady says not to worry about earthly things, and that Heaven will be your goal. And a Friend of Medjugorje was just saying, you know, “How many people are going to misinterpret these words to mean that there’s things that you shouldn’t even be working towards because, since Heaven is the goal, then you don’t need to be worrying about earthly things,” then what does it matter to be concerned about a lot of the topics, actually, that he speaks about, especially on the Mejanomics broadcasts that are earthly things. And he was explaining that, not to misinterpret Our Lady’s message, that you shouldn’t be doing things, but actually, to realize, that if Heaven is your goal, then you will be doing things, and you’ll feel the message that a Friend of Medjugorje has quoted so many times, that you will not feel the passage from this life to the next, that you’ll start feeling Heaven on earth. That is a lot of the topics that he speaks about, especially on the Mejanomics broadcasts, where he does talk about a lot of earthly things.
Because Heaven is the goal, are the reasons why you do certain things. And when you get closer to the land, when you are living in an honest money system and all of the other topics that he talks about, then you don’t feel the passage from this life to the next because already do begin to live Heaven on the earth. And what you’re going to hear him speak about tonight is exactly that, of what it looks like when Heaven is your goal, and that is in your heart. And that is what you are going to hear tonight from a Friend of Medjugorje.
This is a Friend of Medjugorje, September 17, 2021.
[A FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]
Come here and show everybody your boo boo. Hey, Maddalena! She just showed it to Our Lady. Show them your foot. Lift up your foot. Show everybody your foot.
[A FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]
She got a boo boo, and Our Lady went out there, and she went in front of the statue, so She blessed it. Now, she’s okay now.
[A FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]
That’s one thing Our Lady’s asked us, to live the Christian life continually. The kids are around statues, prayer, constant. There’s no embarrassment, who we say and what we talk about. And the children are free to talk about faith, and most people aren’t.
Your message today, June 2, 2017, which I haven’t read. I want to see what She says.
“Dear children, as in the other places where I have come to you, also here…”
That’s a bomb right there.
“…I am calling you to prayer…”
The efficacy of Our Lady, meaning the power Our Lady has, God has given to Her, has increased through the millions and tens of millions, hundreds of millions, billions of rosaries over forty years. Just imagine how many people across the world who’s had a devotion to Our Lady is praying the Rosary. And every day, She has more intentions laid before God, bringing all those roses to the throne of God and says, “Here’s My money. I’m buying something. I want these intentions for what they said.” And Our Lady’s grown in wealth from 1981, every single day has increased.
So, this is an example of our experiences of Our Lady, Her new efficacy, that when She leaves, She’s going to be able to help you more than your physical mother. You might think, “Well, my mother washes dishes. She cooks. She does this,” whatever. But Our Lady’s got things She can do that’s not able to be done by a mother, because it needs supernatural graces.
So, that efficacy, don’t take that for example. We are already experiencing it here. Our Lady does things all the time.
You’ve heard this story, I imagine, and we’ve got a phrase that we say when Our Lady does something. And we got it from a little boy, my son, Joshua. And he’s like, I guess, what? Nine or ten years old? Marija and a good part of the Community is at Sea World in Florida, and that day, that night, Shamu was going to be doing a fireworks display while doing all his tricks. It’s the famous whale down there in Florida, at Sea World. Incredible if you’ve seen it. It’s so incredible, actually, it makes you tear up if you see how this creature can do what he can do.
So, anyway, we had already seen him a couple of times. But Our Lady said the night before, “I will appear tomorrow at ten o’clock.” The next day, we go to Sea World, and here it is, they announce, “Tonight, we’re going to do a special thing with fireworks at ten o’clock.” They close at ten o’clock. If you’re not in there, you can’t get there. So, we think, “Oh, man. We’ve got Our Lady’s apparition.” So, we had to pick which one we were going to do. So I said, “Okay. Let’s get in the van. We’ll pack into it.” There was probably fifteen, sixteen of us in there. So, we drive up there at 9:30, and to get in the gate and to run to where you have to be sitting at ten, you can’t get in there. So, we know we’re not going to make it.
So, we went there and started the Rosary at 9:30, and we started praying in preparation for Our Lady’s apparition at ten o’clock. And the parking, again, it’s blocks away to where you need to go, so there’s no way to do it. So, we start doing the Rosary, and we’re not doing it for like two minutes. I don’t even know if we got to the first Rosary. We start the Rosary in there, and we’re packed in there in the van, and the kids were hoping we could get there. And so, we start the Rosary, and suddenly…I’m praying. I’m in the back of the van. And Annette’s whisper goes through, “Marija’s in ecstasy.” And I said, “What?” “Our Lady’s here.” So, about 9:35, Our Lady appears. And She goes through the apparition, does what She typically does, and then it’s over. And after that, everybody’s stunned. And Joshua says, “She’s so cool!” And all the doors busted open and the kids started running. [LAUGHTER]
So, we’ve got a saying, when we see Our Lady’s efficacy, “She’s so cool!” I just said it the other day. Something happened. I was talking to another Community member. I said, “She’s so cool.” And She does, and we see these things.
Our Lady did that on purpose to show you that as a Mother, She’s concerned with what you do on earth. And actually, watching that whale is biblical. It’s mystical, because God put such smarts in these whales, and you think about God. The first time Marija saw it, she teared up. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen it, but it’s something mystical. So, we’ve got that saying.
So, Our Lady’s saying,
“Dear children, as in the other places…”
Where are you at right now? What place is this? “…other places…” means, “I’m here at this place.” So, “where I’ve been other places,”
“…I have come to you, also here…”
This is Our Lady’s efficacy. You can start seeing this and experiencing this if you stop long enough, “Okay, Mary. I want you to give me the graces to recognize…” Because sometimes, you’re so busy, She does something, you never even realize it, that She did something cool for you.
This is your go home thing.
“Dear children, as in the other places where I have come to you, also here I am calling you to prayer…”
That’s your main thing today, is increase your prayer, the depth of your prayer. Our Lady says, “I don’t need a hundred Our Fathers or two hundred Our Fathers. Better just to say one from the heart.” Go into one Our Father in the depth of the prayer, and you’ll feel that, and you’ll feel Her presence. And then you can increase those numbers.
“…I am calling you to prayer. Pray for those who do not know my Son, for those who have not come to know the love of God, against sin…”
Let that sink into you, because I want to tell you about some efficacy, today, of Our Lady. “…I am calling you…” “…here…”
“…Pray for those who do not know my Son, for those who have not come to know the love of God, against sin, for the consecrated…”
They sin against the consecrated, those people who are consecrated to Our Lady, those who are priests, those who are nuns, the bishops. We’re consecrated here, as missionaries for Our Lady.
“…Pray for those who do not know my Son, for those who have not come to know the love of God, against sin, for the consecrated – for those whom my Son called to have love and the spirit of strength for you, for the Church. Pray to my Son, and the love which you experience from His nearness will give you the strength to make you ready for the works of love…”
The Protestants always say, “It’s not works that you get to Heaven. It’s by faith.” And they go on and on and on about this. “It’s not about works.” I think it’s St. Paul who says, “Your faith will show by works.”
“…ready for the works of love which you will do in His name. My children, be ready…”
I’m late today. I was supposed to be here a long time ago. But the Scriptures and what Jesus said, is leave the flock after the one. Go after one. Leave the ninety-nine. You know He told a parable about that. That’s sometimes what God puts you in. That’s why I’m late today.
“…My children, be ready. This time is a turning point… showing you the way by which you need to go, and those are the words of the Gospel…”
I just quoted that. I didn’t know it was coming up. Leave the ninety-nine. Go for the one.
“…Apostles of my love, the world is in such need of your arms raised towards Heaven, towards my Son, towards the Heavenly Father. Much humility and purity of heart are needed…”
Remember this line.
“…Much humility and purity of heart are needed. Have trust in my Son and know that you can always be better. My motherly heart desires for you, apostles of my love, to be little lights of the world, to illuminate there where darkness wants to begin to reign…”
Darkness wants to reign.
“…to show the true way by your prayer and love, to save souls…”
Remember this line.
“…to show the true way by your prayer and love, to save souls [who’s in darkness]…”
“Who’s in darkness,” is not in the message, but above there, She said, “illuminate them where there’s darkness.”
“…I am with you…”
Give me a song. Listen to the words to it.
[SONG: “WHEN GOD RAN”]
Almighty God, the great I AM, Immovable Rock, Omnipotent, Powerful, Awesome Lord. Victorious Warrior, Commanding King of Kings, Mighty Conqueror, and the only time, the only time I ever saw Him run,
Was when He ran to me. He took me in His arms, held my head to His chest, and said, “My son’s come home again.” Lifted my face, wiped the tears from my eyes. With forgiveness in His voice, He said, “Son, do you know I still love you?” He caught me by surprise, when God ran.
The day I left home, I knew I’d broken His heart. And I wondered then, if things could ever be the same. Then one night, I remembered His love for me. And down that dusty road, ahead I could see. It was the only time; it was the only time I ever saw Him run.
And then He ran to me. He took me in His arms, held my head to His chest, and said, “My son’s come home again.” Lifted my face, wiped the tears from my eyes. With forgiveness in His voice, He said, “Son, do you know I still love you?” He caught me by surprise, and He brought me to my knees, when God ran.
I saw Him run to me.
I was so ashamed, all alone and so far away. But now I know He’s been waiting for this day.
I saw Him run to me. He took me in His arms, held my head to His chest and said, “My son’s come home again.” Lifted my face, wiped the tears from my eyes. With forgiveness in His voice, I felt His love for me again.
He ran to me. He took me in His arms, held my head to His chest and said, “My son’s come home again.” Lifted my face, wiped the tears from my eyes. With forgiveness in His voice, He said, “Son!” He called me son. He said, “Son, do you know I still love you?” He ran to me.
(When God ran) (I saw Him run to me) And now I ran to Him. (When God ran) When God ran.
[A FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]
Our Lady, today, is chasing everybody on earth. She’s after every individual, whether they’re a Hitler or a saint. And you’re supposed to be doing the same.
I pulled up in the parking lot earlier, and the Orkin man was spraying. He comes through and sprays once a month. I’ve seen him around. I’ve never talked to him before. But I’m working at home right now. And so, he comes knocking on the door, wanting to spray the House. And so, I ask him,
“Are you here to spray?”
And he says, “Yes.”
He was real nice. And so,
“Yeah, you can go ahead and do everything. Do I need to leave the house or what?”
He says, “No, you can stay here.”
So, he came in, and I said, “What can you do about this,” or whatever, that spraying outside. And then, I ask him, I said,
“What does Orkin pay? What’s the pay scale for them?”
He said, so many dollars per month. And I said,
“Well, we’re looking for some people here to hire on the side for the Community because there’s a lot of things we’re going to do. What kind of skills have you got?”
And we’re working into the living room. We’re going into the Bedroom of Apparitions. And we stop in the bathroom. We’re talking. And I said,
“What can you do? How long have you been doing this?”
He said, “Well, I’ve been spraying y’all for about a year.”
And I said, “Well, what did you do before that?”
He said, “Well, I worked on cars.”
I said, “What did you do for them?”
He said, “Everything. I worked for car dealerships.”
And I said, “Why did you quit doing that?”
He said, “Because, for fifteen years, I did it, I just got tired of it.”
I said, “What else did you do?”
He said, “I was in a band for years. And now, I’m just doing music with my daughter, helping her.”
And he was real humble.
And so, we went upstairs to the other bathroom, because I wanted to do some things on the drains and stuff.
So, I said, “Are you looking for any other kind of job or another job? We’re looking for good people. We take care of people. This is a special place.”
And so, he’s pouring some things down the drain, and I said,
“Well, do you go to church?”
He said, “No.”
And I said, “What do you do if you don’t want to go to church?”
He said, “I’m a pagan.”
I said, “You’re a pagan?”
He says, “Yes.” He said, “I’m a witch.”
I said, “How long have you been a witch?”
He said, “For thirty years.”
I said, “Well, that’s okay. We like pagans. I like pagans.”
And he opened up. And we finished there. We were talking. We went downstairs, got in the kitchen. And I said,
“What do you do as a pagan?”
He said, “Well, I don’t pray like a Christian. I pray to goddesses. And Christians pray for the light. I pray for the darkness.”
I said, “At least you’re praying.” I said, “That’s good. And what do you pray?”
He said, “I pray to a woman goddess.”
I said, “That’s good too.”
And he said, “I don’t like the light, and I’ve been doing this for a long time.”
I said, “Well, I’ve been to Greece several times, and up on top of the Acropolis is the goddess Athena.”
He said, “Well, I pray to this woman goddess of darkness.”
And I said, “The Virgin Mary is a goddess to a lot of people. In Guadalupe, it was pagans, and She appeared down there. Why don’t you try praying to that goddess of the Virgin Mary and see what happens to your heart? You will see something happen in your heart.”
He said, “Well, when I pray, I like to pray to a woman goddess.”
And then I went into, about Athena, that they did sacrifices to Athena. She’s a prefigurement, in paganism, of the Virgin Mary. Paul, the Apostle of Christ, went to Greece and went to Athens, and there’s a big rock up there where he went up there and talked to the pagans. Aristotle was there. Below there, where he lived, Plato, all these people, all the philosophers. And they were pagans. But they had virtue. And I told him,
“When Paul was on there, he had two conversions…”
And I didn’t say Christianity. But I told him, I said,
“…When he was up there, this was the first place where the trials and court took place. That’s where justice was discovered, on this one rock.”
It’s an awesome place to be there, go up there and pray.
So, Paul’s talking to the Athenians, and he got two conversions. But the way he did it, he said, “I’ve noticed, your markers you have,” things for your gods. And it says, “For the Unknown God.” And Paul started talking about the Unknown God.
So, “The Virgin Mary, a lot of people can talk to Her, and She will talk back to you. She will do something for you. So, if you like praying to the woman goddess, you just start talking to the Virgin Mary. Discuss with Her, and say, ‘You manifest Yourself in me. Show me.’”
And then he says this. He says, “Well, I don’t hate anybody. I don’t curse anybody. I like being humble and generous to people.”
I said, “She’s got you.” [LAUGHTER] “That’s what you need. You keep that, She’s going to talk to you, I’m telling you. Because it takes humility and purity.”
“…those who do not know my Son…come to know the love of God…”
“…Much humility and purity of heart are needed…”
See, he’s already got the virtues. He was very nice. We weren’t debating or anything. You’ve got to go to where they are. You can’t start debating people, saying, “Oh, well, you can’t believe that. That’s bad. You’re doing curses. You’re doing all these things. You’re doing spells.” Where are you going to get? Nowhere. I came to him. Jesus went to the people, where they were, and talked to the pagans. He wasn’t defiled by that. This guy’s been doing this, spraying on our house…Maybe he’s been doing voodoo on it. I don’t know what he’s been doing for all this whole year.
But when he said, “Humility,” and “I want to be kind to people,” Our Lady’s got this guy, not on himself. I have to pray for him. I’ve already given him the Special Blessing.
So, as we were standing there, I said that,
“You just do this with Our Lady,”
I didn’t say, “Our Lady.”
“the Virgin Mary, because She has a special power. She’s appearing every day, right now, in a place, and She is really speaking to people.”
I didn’t say, “Mother.” I just said,
“She will manifest Herself in your heart, because you just told me about, you like being humble.”
And he was. His whole thing was really, “Yes, sir.” I don’t know if anybody’s talked to this guy. Have y’all talked to him before? The Orkin guy? He’s just humble. He doesn’t say anything. Not ugly or anything. So,
“Look. I tell you, I’m going to give you this Rosary, and you keep this in your pocket every day, and I’m going to go across the street, and I’m going to get you something, and I want you to follow me over there, and I’ll get that.” I said, “It’s something I want you to put in your pocket and keep it.”
So, I had a mint silver piece, the one that’s minted. It’s in plastic, not the regular Medjugorje round. It’s been stamped twice, and so, it’s really, really pretty. It’s beautiful. So, I had it in the studio. It’s been there for a month. I don’t know what that thing was sitting there for. Our Lady knew it. She’s so cool. [LAUGHTER] Because I couldn’t go find one anywhere. So, I go get this. I go there, and he’s there waiting. And said, “Look at this.”
He said, “Man, that’s beautiful.”
I said, “You keep this in your pocket. Don’t take it out of the plastic. It’ll get scratched up. But you read this book, It Ain’t Gonna Happen, and you watch the power of the Virgin Mary…”
He said, “Well, I don’t look for power. I don’t want power.”
I said, “Okay. I’m not talking about power. I’m talking about the power of the manifestation of Her exposing Herself to Who She is.”
And I said, “I’m giving you this. Read the book, and you do your prayers to Her, the goddess, and watch what happens.”
What’s going to happen? Nothing. Because you plant the seed like that, you’ve got to water it.
All of you here now hearing this story has to pray for the next months for this guy every day. Give him a Special Blessing. One “Hail Mary” a day, that’s all you need. Our Lady gave this message, “Go after these people.” And I didn’t have time to deal with him. But that breaks your schedule, no matter what happens, because Our Lady put him there.
And another thing Our Lady did, when I pulled up in the parking lot and saw him early, I looked at him. And sometimes, I’ll see somebody. I’ll stop and just look at him. It’s like a picture taken. She prepped me, this morning, to think about that guy, and I started thinking about it. I wasn’t thinking, like, who he was or what he was. I knew he was the Orkin guy. I just paused and looked at him for a minute. That’s the efficacy of Our Lady. I didn’t know what was going on, what She was playing. She wanted me to notice this guy, so when he came to the door, I was half prepped, ready to talk to him. It’s almost like a still shot you see in a movie, and then they stop it. You see a picture, then it goes. It was frozen in time. Remember the movie? Years ago? We can’t look at it now, anyway.
So, here it is, Our Lady even prepped me for this guy, and has been prepping him for the whole year he’s been out here. So, you commit yourself because you have to water this seed. And he got a heavy seed today. And at least he prays. All you have to do is redirect him.
I didn’t get his name.
The Orkin man! [LAUGHTER]
[A FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]
The Orkin man. So, that’s what you call. [LAUGHTER]
On March 25, 1990, Our Lady says,
“…I am with you even [when] you are not conscious of it…”
Our Lady’s doing things, just freezing this picture of this motion thing, and it stops for second. You see it. And you can say, “Oh, that supernatural.” No, it’s just natural. That’s what She’s doing.
“…I am with you…”
And She does things, and She lays everything out for you. But if you’re so busy, you’re so much in the world or you’re looking at this thing, you’re talking to it, spending your time too much on it…
You have things all throughout your day, every day, every minute, being blocked, because Our Lady’s not going to compete with that. That’s an instrument of the devil. Everybody’s enslaved with it. Everybody’s got it. You have to do it, yes. But you better start figuring out how you’re going to do without that. People need to put their landlines back in their houses. We don’t know how long that’s going to last.
“…I want to protect you from everything that satan offers you and through which he wants to destroy you…”
Yesterday, what I said about Ivanka, I left one thing out of it. satan wants to enslave you. “…[he] is active in this…” “he wants to enslave you through…”—what I left out of that—“he wants to enslave you through materialism.” That’s the rope, and that’s the noose that is around everybody’s neck.
So, we have examples throughout the day of Our Lady, if you’re sensitive to it. Don’t be picking up your phone every ten minutes, every five minutes, every two hours. Just check it in the morning if you have to. Start weaning yourself and keep yourself in contemplation of Mary, or you’re going to miss these beautiful things.
If I was sitting there, and I had a cell phone—and we don’t—he came in, and I was on the phone, I’d say, “Come on in,” or I’d be busy doing that, looking at that. If I started talking, it’d be interrupting me ten times. They’ve proven, through studies, that if you’re sitting with somebody, and you’re talking to them, and you’ve got your cell phone—it’s laying on the table or the restaurant—that your concentration with the person is not 100%. Just that thing there, your mind’s on something. “Somebody wants to see me,” or, “What do I need to check now?” Whatever. Don’t tell me that doesn’t have extraordinary power of darkness. This is science. They’ve proved it.
We also have lost our concentration as far as our ability to have an attention span. Now, our attention span is less than a goldfish. It’s like four seconds, five seconds. The goldfish is like six seconds. So, you get that.
“…I want to protect you from everything that satan offers you and through which he wants to destroy you…”
What is the answer? She says,
“…As I bore Jesus in my womb, so also, dear children, do I wish to bear you unto holiness…”
That’s the key. That’s the answer for everything: holiness.
Everybody breaks the Commandments. In the Book of James, it says, “If you break one Commandment, you break all ten.” The difference of those who don’t accept the Ten Commandments, because Our Lady says, “Keep the Ten Commandments.” You’re keeping the Commandments. Are you breaking them when you break one of them? If you don’t think you’re doing anything wrong.
We break the Commandments continually. The saints did. John Paul II went to Confession every day. Why did he do that? Because he broke the Commandments. But he kept the Commandments because he knew he broke it, and he’d go confess it.
So, “Well, I wouldn’t kill anybody. I’m not going to commit murder.” If you slander somebody, the Bible relays to us, that you destroy somebody reputation, it’s murder. You’re killing.
So, to keep the Sacraments you run to Confession. That’s why Our Lady said, “The West would be healed by monthly Confession.” And the bishops haven’t done anything. That’s all we have to do worldwide, take that and done it, we wouldn’t be where we are today. They’re our organizers of the spiritual life. They’re the ones that could have gotten together in the world and do that. But they’re not listening, and they don’t believe, except in their power, which is being misused, or either not used.
So, this is a good example today of where we are and where we need to go. Pray, holiness, confess.
Sometimes they’re in a bottle, sometimes a pair of high-heel shoes. Some come rolled in paper. Some have six strings and only play the blues. But once you’ve met the devil, there ain’t no way he’ll let you be. When I’m not chasing demons, there’s demons chasing me.
Skeletons in closets, ghosts underneath the bed. They hide out in pictures and words better left unsaid. They hang around like perfume and haunt me like an ancient melody. When I’m not chasing demons, there’s demons chasing me.
There’s things that I can’t leave alone ‘cause they won’t leave me alone. ‘Cause what I want ain’t what I need. Still, I reach for the things I crave, better try to run away. Maybe I’m afraid of being free? ‘Cause when I’m not chasing demons, there’s demons chasing me.
So, roll one up and light it. Pick up my old guitar. I’m playing crossroads, drinking whiskey from a mason jar. There’s a heartache at my front door says she needs my company. When I’m not chasing demons, there’s demons chasing me.
There’s things that I can’t leave alone ‘cause they won’t leave me alone. What I want ain’t what I need. Still, I reach for the things I crave, better try to run away. Am I afraid of being free? You tell me. ‘Cause when I’m not chasing demons, there’s demons chasing me.
When I’m not chasing demons, there’s demons chasing me. There’s demons chasing me. There’s demons chasing me. When I’m not chasing demons, there’s demons chasing me.

If you’re praying, if you’re fasting, if you’re making sacrifices, if you’re humble, if you’re good to people, you’re chasing the demons away. If you’re not praying, if you’re not saying the Rosary, if you’re not fasting, if you’re not being nice to people, if you don’t have empathy for people, they’re chasing you. Power of the devil is profound.
“…I want to protect you from everything that satan offers you…”
You have to be doing those things to chase the demon. Otherwise, Our Lady says,
“…that satan offers you and through which he wants to destroy you…”
he’s never had this kind of power on earth around every, and surrounding his halo of filth around every individual of the 7.5 billion people on the world.
In the Scriptures, Jesus says, the night, Holy Thursday, that He didn’t want Lazarus to be there because every single person in Jerusalem would have a demon. They were completely let loose to all the Twelve. They all had their demons. They all abandoned Jesus. Peter cursed Jesus. Cursed. At the fire. You would think, “How could he do that?” Because he had a demon next to him.
We’re in a dangerous world, a dangerous situation. You have to pray. You’re not just going to be holy, because the society we had decades ago helped you to be good, helped you to be protected, how to be modest, how not to bad music. We don’t have that. We don’t have the support, and that’s why Our Lady says the healing of the United States of America will be through prayer groups. You have to form communities. You have to do this now. You have to go back home. Is it a struggle? Yes. Just find out your Medjugorje people and let that evolve from that. Again, like yesterday, I said, this is nothing but a prayer group. It began in my family. Some other people wanted to join. They started coming, and people are following us all over the world. It’s just that. It’s that simple.
And yes, Our Lady wants witness, and She told me that on October 6, 1986. I couldn’t believe it, on the airplane, coming back, looking at the clouds, “What does Our Lady want me to do?” But what She wanted me to do, She says, “You will attain what you desire.” I want to give Her this Valley, and we’re creeping along in getting that and protecting it.
There’s no reason this place hasn’t developed. For years…Actually, before Medjugorje, I was praying that this place wouldn’t develop. Me and my brother. This is back in ’77. Medjugorje wasn’t on the radar. But I was praying three “Hail Mary’s” to protect this Valley, every day. And we do this continuously. So, what is that? Over forty years. Forty-seven years.
Back on the mountain, they developed. In front of the other mountains, they developed. Down here, they developed in Pell City. Over here on the other side…But this place has been stopped. Our Lady is holding Her hands over the Valley.
When we built the Tabernacle, we brought the construction people. Marija came for her second visit. February 3, ’94. Ten minutes is a long time for Our Lady to appear. And I’m starting to think, “What’s going on? What’s happening?” The building, the shell, was already built. And after the apparition, Marija said that Our Lady held Her arms up a long time over the Valley. And I’ve always felt—and Marija didn’t know—but I’ve always felt She put some protection over here because She knew She was going to consecrate the country from here and many, many other things. She knew you were coming back on that February 3rd. It’s a place of conversion. What She said this morning,
“…as in the other places where I have come to you, also here I am calling you to prayer…”
Prayer has preserved this Valley, and you have to put more in your prayer in what you do.
I want you to be motivated by this, motivated to more prayer, more sacrifice, more changing of your life, changing your direction and what you have to do. It’s not about saving self. It’s about saving the world.
February 25, 1988. Community?
“…sacrifice your lives for the salvation of the world…”
[A FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]
That’s our motto. That’s what we’re here for. That’s why the people and the families and the consecrated, they’re dedicating their life.
“…sacrifice your [life] for the salvation of the world…”
Francis didn’t have that. A lot of saints didn’t have that. The Virgin Mary asks you to do that. You want to keep playing your golf? You want to do that? You want to do your money? Sacrifice everything. I’m not telling you to go on the street. Use your energy and everything to save the world through Our Lady, through Her Son, through God the Father.
It’s painful to lose them, even non-believers.
[SONG: “I DON’T WANT TO BE WITHOUT YOU”]
These are the words I never speak, ’cause they’d embarrass you, but they’re haunting me. These are the tears you never see. They’re foolish to you, but they’re drowning me. Tell me what is wrong. What can I do to make this simple truth more true to you? I don’t want to argue. Hear me with your heart. I don’t want to be without you.
These are the arms that ache for you. Frightened to push too hard, frightened you’ll slip right through. This is the joy I want you to know. You say it’s good for me, but leave you alone. Well, I can’t walk away, won’t leave you here. When I am so sure we could always be near. I know a place where we can meet. I don’t want to be without you.
These are the words I never speak, ’cause they’d embarrass you, oh, but they keep haunting me. I don’t want to be, I don’t want to be, I don’t want to be without you.
Please believe. Please believe.

Jakov said, “All I’ll tell you about hell is that you would not want your worst enemy to go there.” He wouldn’t say anything else.
I don’t want Biden to go to hell. I don’t want Pelosi to go to hell, Roberts to hell, and many of these people of what they’re doing. We want to save people. Our Lady did not walk down Via Dolorosa saying, “Why? This is not right. I don’t know why God’s doing this.” For some of these people, the only salvation they can have from the fires of hell, is that kind of sentence.
In the Name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit, amen.
Mary, we had 120 people here for our pilgrimage in June, but it’s just as important, whether it’s small groups or large groups. And so, we ask You to give graces for these people who have pilgrimaged to here. In this place, you flood them with the graces for the months to come from this one visit, and what they have learned here, grow their souls. Grow with grace. Help them. Let them be Your soldiers. We seek going after one person as we would for a million people. We know You have commissioned us as apostles, and all it takes is our “yes.” Sacrifice your life for the salvation of the world.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee. Blessed art Thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of Thy Womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, amen.
Our Lady Queen of Peace and Reconciliation,
Pray for us.
[A FRIEND OF MEDJUGORJE]
Father, Son, Holy Spirit, amen.
