Saving the Cross

Saving the Cross

Saving the Cross

Cross at Sunset

by a Friend of Medjugorje

Unless you are blind, all can see easily a great battle in the physical realm is taking place. The dark LEFT is not satisfied with just taking power, they are doing EVERY—EVERYthing to dismantle our great nation. Just one such policy of darkness, that was enacted in the new administration, is that they are taking our tax dollars and using them in foreign countries for all to have access to abortion. We have heard from many who are deeply concerned our nation is being taken over by evil and corrupt leaders. Listen to me, from within your inner heart, of what I am writing to you. The United States of America is caught up in a diabolical, tyrannical web. satan has won in the physical realm. he and his minions are destroying the United States of America, hour by hour, minute by minute. What those in darkness are doing does not make sense because they, themselves, are destroying their own futures as well. How can it be explained?


In Scripture, in the first chapter of Romans, it reveals exactly what is happening today and why. Read very slowly the following Scripture and enter into every sentence to its fullest meaning. You will see evil souls have lost their sense and reasoning, and what they do, does not glorify God. Our Lady has told us that which does not glorify God “will” pass away, will fall apart. September 2, 2011 The following comes from the Bible, the Word of God. Our Lady tells us two things about God’s Word in Her December 2, 2007, message. The Word of God is…

1. …the Light of Salvation…
2. …the Light of “Common Sense”…


What you will read will explain why people of darkness have lost reasoning, becoming “senseless,” the loss of Common Sense, all the while thinking they are wise. This is why they do not glorify God, rather they glorify the prince of darkness.

Romans 1:21–32

“For although they knew God they did not accord him glory as God or give him thanks. Instead, they became vain in their reasoning, and ‘their senseless minds were darkened.’ While claiming to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for the likeness of an image of mortal man or of birds or of four-legged animals or of snakes. Therefore, God handed them over to impurity through the lusts of their hearts for the mutual degradation of their bodies. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and revered and worshiped the creature rather than the creator…Therefore, God handed them over to degrading passions. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God handed them over to their undiscerning mind to do what is improper. They are filled with every form of wickedness, evil, greed, and malice, full of envy, murder, rivalry, treachery, and spite. They are gossips and scandalmongers and they hate God. They are insolent, haughty, boastful, ‘ingenious in their wickedness,’ and rebellious toward their parents. They are ‘senseless,’ [lack common sense] faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know the just decree of God that all who practice such things deserve death, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.”


The above Scripture from Romans is the #1 Bible verse for our time. It is a perfect description of the times we live concerning the caustic leaders of our day: “their senseless minds were darkened. While claiming to be wise, they exchanged the truth of God for a lie.”


In other words, all the Deep State and their steps, all their decisions will hurt themselves, as well as those who follow God. Their plans to destroy those of the Light will serve us, by saving us, by purifying us of our sinfulness, bringing us to repentance, but at the same time, they will destroy themselves because of their unrepentant and denial of sins. If you are of the mind that the United States of America is going to be alright, and we will go back to normal, you do not understand Our Lady’s presence upon the earth. Our Lady is going to change the direction of the whole world THROUGH THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. We are in the throes of birth, a painful, dangerous birth. The possibility of being stillborn is very real. The world is watching the United States of America in prayer, hoping in earnest, because if the United States falls, so will every nation on earth. You think not?


Many, in the United States, do not understand the insecurity and fear of people of foreign countries if the United States were to fall. At the same time, the one world government cabal knows they cannot reign until the United States is dismantled. That is the reason. Therefore, take my words seriously when I say that the world’s hope depends upon the United States. The following is a small sampling of individuals from many countries who are moved by what they read concerning our nation and Our Lady’s connection to it. In particular, they have been disturbed over what is taking place in the United States in the battle “For the Soul of America” because they know if America falls, the whole world will fall. Because of this, many people around the world are praying, with deep concern, for the United States and the present dismantling that they see taking place in our nation. The following letters were edited and shortened. You can read all of them, or just skim, or skip through them. The main point is to give you visual evidence from people around the globe from whom we hear.1

We are in a Biblical Time


The Battle for the Cross on Penitentiary Mountain Paralleling the Great Struggle Across the World


There are two opposing sides. This struggle is staged across the land mass of the United States of America and thereby, the world, as you just read in the statements from people across the earth. This struggle has a geographic location, the sides of which have their own Ground Zero from which it battles from. Each side has gravitated towards the corner they belong in. Both separated from a general middle ground where they were formally mingled together. Time has run out to decide which side you will align with. Both sides are after the same prize. The side of darkness, a cabal, which is represented by Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, their cohorts and those who give them orders, hope to claim the prize. The side of Light, is represented by Our Lady, who is the representative of Her Son. Her followers and all those of good will hope to claim the prize.


What is it that the side of darkness wishes to claim, in order to enslave the world and destroy it? What is it that the side of Light wishes to claim, in order to liberate the world and save it? In this moment, darkness prevails over the Light. Therefore, the writing that follows reads accurately the order. As it stands now, February, 2021, in real time: Darkness is first. Light is second.


The prize is:
The darkness strives for “THE SOUL OF AMERICA.”
The Light strives for “THE SOUL OF AMERICA.”


There are not two souls.

There is only one Soul.

Biden’s side calls for it.

Our Lady’s side calls for it.

The battle is over the same Soul.

A battle to destroy the world or save the world.

Whatever side seizes The Soul of America, wins the world.


This battle occupies two locations:

The battleground, for “Ground Zero,” for darkness is the swamp on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. in the battle “For the Soul of America.”


The battleground for “Ground Zero” for the Light is a crystal clear spring of grace flowing from the “Conversion Triangle,” crowned by the Cross on Penitentiary Mountain, “For The Soul of America.”

Our Lady has created a Conversion Trinity

The Biden/Harris 2020 Presidential Campaign Slogan

Stolen in 2017, by the darkness away from the Light


A phrase popularized by the Queen of Peace


Words inspired by the Queen of Peace, Etched in the concrete foundation of the Cross BUILT On June 12, 2013, “For the Soul of America.”

For the Soul of America

For The Soul of America. After almost six months of hard hand labor to prepare the mountaintop, and just 18 days before pilgrims would be arriving, the footers were poured on top of the mountain that would support the three-quarter million pound Cross. Our founder, a Friend of Medjugorje, was alone on the mountain. The concrete foundation was finished. Everybody had left. As he started to walk back down the mountain, the words above were literally put in his heart by Our Lady. He suddenly turned around and went back to the foundation, knowing what Our Lady wanted him to do. He inscribed into the foundation what he had heard in his heart. The date was June 12, 2013. The Cross was miraculously constructed 18 days later. Our Lady had Her first apparition at the site of the Cross on June 30, 2013, with Marija and the Community kneeling before it.

Our Lady Must Have Your Hands

St. Louis de Montfort wrote of Our Lady’s apostles of the Latter Days, that they would fight with one hand and build with the other. A great struggle, fighting with one hand and building with the other—is how the Cross on Penitentiary Mountain came to be. Many could make a claim that “Ground Zero,” for the side of Light, in this battle to save America, is this place or that place, or another place. It is not a matter of whose opinion is right in stating what place is the official or unofficial place of “Ground Zero.” It is a matter of actual evidence that can prove an actual site is “Ground Zero” in the battle launched in the spiritual realm, manifested in the physical realm, For the Soul of America.

Our Lady Validates
Louis de Montfort’s “Hand” Statement:
“Fight with One Hand, Build with the Other”

On May 31, 1995, during a personal visit to Medjugorje visionary, Marija’s home in Italy, I was alone with Marija, for her evening apparition. It was the Feast of Our Lady’s Visitation to Elizabeth. After the apparition, Marija immediately turned to me and told me to pray the Magnificat prayer and she left the room. I was in awe to be given the gift of closing the apparition with the prayer that Our Lady memorialized, saying to Elizabeth the words on the feast day those words were spoken. After a while, Marija came back from the kitchen, holding a piece of paper in which she had written down a message that Our Lady had just given in Her apparition. It was given “out of the blue.” Neither Marija nor I had expected it. I was not praying that Our Lady would give a message. Marija immediately knew the message was not for her. She said,


“It is for you, your family and your community.”


Part of what Our Lady said in Her message on May 31, 1995:


“… I desire that…you are my extended ‘hands,’ my instruments…”


Louis de Montfort was on target with the Queen of Heaven! “Fight with one ‘hand’ and build with ‘the other’”! It is by the hand of the Holy Virgin Mary in the spiritual realm, taking our hands in the physical realm, that enabled the Cross to be built on Penitentiary Mountain. But how can it be claimed that this is “Ground Zero” for Our Lady’s “Side of Light?”

It’s a Matter of Evidence
Something Very Big Happened on
July 4, 2020,
A Story Written in Heaven
Unfolded on Earth

In 1985, I began to pray to be consecrated to Our Lady. I had no formula, no outline, no timeline. I didn’t even know how to consecrate myself, nor did I fully understand what consecration meant. Yet, I constantly begged Our Lady for it. A year later, in 1986, I found myself in a room with approximately 20 priests, praying the Rosary. As the Rosary was close to ending, it struck me that I had been praying for a full year to consecrate myself. A strong inspiration came to me. I said to myself that I could not imagine a more perfect time or place in all the world to make my consecration. At that moment, I turned and in a whisper, asked the priest kneeling next to me, Fr. Ken Roberts, to consecrate me to Our Lady. I thought, at the time, that only a priest could consecrate someone. I expected only a little prayer but was embarrassed when Fr. Roberts stopped the Rosary and announced to all the priests in the room to lay hands on me and to consecrate me to Our Lady.


Kneeling down, I was aware that two people had stood up and began praying with the priests. These two youth were the Medjugorje visionaries, Marija and Jakov. Just as the prayer ended, the visionaries immediately knelt down at the moment Our Lady began appearing to them. It was my first time to be in an apparition with Our Lady. It was more than profound. But what was the date? July 4, 1986! The date held no significance for me concerning the apparitions. Certainly, I did not make a connection, at the time, of Our Lady’s apparitions of Medjugorje and our nation’s birth. It would be several years before realizing how Heaven ordained the significance of that first apparition to coincide with July 4th. But from that day forward, July 4, 1986—from the rectory of St. James Church in Medjugorje to the Bedroom and Field of Apparitions in Alabama, encompassing 34 years of history—Our Lady put me on a path of Consecrations, in which July 4th would become greatly significant in Our Lady’s plans for peace for the world. Now, with history making a complete 360-degree turn, the trail is well worn where Our Lady led us from July 4, 1986, to July 4, 2020.


Before you begin to walk the trail of July 4, 1986, to July 4, 2020, read and study every word of how profound and impacting a Consecration is and what it means “to consecrate”:


CONSECRATION: The act of separating from a common to a sacred use, or of devoting and dedicating a person or thing to the service and worship of God, by certain rites or solemnities.


CONSECRATION does not make a person or thing really holy, but declares it to be sacred, that is, devoted to God or to divine service.

Ground Zero for the Healing of the United States of America
Follow the Trail…

The spiritual evidence—A series of land mines Our Lady is burying in a minefield to crush darkness. What is the result? Peace. Victory.


Land Mine #1—Summer 1981: The Pine Tree in the middle of a field, with no apparent significance at the time was Consecrated to God through the prayer of a family. My wife, my two young sons and I had a picnic under the tree. When finished, we felt an intrigue about the tree, which was in the middle of a cow pasture. As we admired the tree we circled it, holding hands. I spontaneously prayed, “We give you this tree. May all who see this tree, see God in it.” It was realized years later that God would not begin to put into motion His plans here without that first Consecration of the Pine Tree. Could He have done so? Yes, of course, God can do anything. But He desires man’s cooperation with His plans. Why, for instance, did God require Moses to strike the rock before the water flowed out from it? God could have made the water flow regardless of whether or not Moses acted, but He would not, until Moses did as he was commanded. Our Lady said:


August 4, 1988

“…I cannot do anything without you…”


The Consecration opened up a passageway for Our Lady to come here in the apparitions.


July 4, 1986: My personal Consecration when I was present for the first time in an apparition of the Virgin Mary in Medjugorje. Following this apparition, I entered into a period of personal prayer for what God was calling my family and I to do. But also, intense prayers were constantly being offered for the conversion of our nation.


November 1988 – January 1989: Medjugorje visionary, Marija, arrived to our home in Birmingham, Alabama, for a three month stay and had her daily apparitions in the Bedroom of Apparitions. On November 23, 1988, Our Lady announced that She would appear the next day by the Pine Tree at 10 AM, in the nearby Field. Although several days before, Our Lady was asked to appear outside because of so many people, She had given no answer. However, on November 22, 1988, no such request was made to Our Lady, nor any prompting to seek this grace from Her. The date of this first apparition in the Field was November 24, 1988. Our Lady purposely chose to appear on this day because it was America’s day of showing gratefulness to God for His bountiful blessings upon our nation. Caught up in the excitement and joy of having Our Lady appearing, no one realized the next day was Thanksgiving Day. Nor was there an understanding that this day held any significance of what Our Lady was initiating here. That understanding would come in time. As to the immediate meaning, Our Lady also said in the apparition, “I am here to help you.”


When we were told what Our Lady said, we understood Our Lady was not just following Marija. Our Lady then added the words, confirming what Our Lady would do, “here”. She said, “I will intercede for you to God for all your intentions.”


With these words, She began revealing a plan. Through the three months of Our Lady’s apparitions, Our Lady appeared only one time by the Pine Tree in the Field.


July 1993: The construction of The Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages (the Motherhouse of Caritas of Birmingham), was near completion and a Dedication/Consecration of this building was being planned for December 1993. Our Lady inspired the writing of a series of novenas to begin being prayed on the 25th of each month, beginning in June and ending in December, at the Dedication, that was titled For the Reconciliation of Ourselves, Our Families and Our Nation Back to God. At the end of the year 2020, we completed 27 years of these prayers for the healing of ourselves, our families and our nation—three nine-year novenas for the return of this nation back to God. Although there was no knowledge of what was in the works in Heaven from these prayers, these novenas laid the groundwork and foundation for the Consecrations of the United States that would take place in the coming years.


February 1994: Coinciding with beginning the prayers mentioned above, Medjugorje visionary, Marija, returned to our home for a three-day visit, February 1-3, 1994. It had been five years since Marija and Our Lady’s three-month visitation, November 1988 through January 1989. During that period, we lived through the most serious persecution and hatefulness that was not diminishing. Our Lady did something that melted all the persecution away with six words. On February 1, 1994, in the Bedroom of Apparitions, Our Lady appeared over the Bed and immediately gave a big smile and said, “I am happy to be here.”


There were no more beautiful words Our Lady could have said. The last day of Our Lady’s three-day visit, Our Lady appeared in the Field of Apparitions on February 3, 1994. On that day, Our Lady did something that, during the apparition, kept us in mystery. The apparition continued a long time. The apparition was 10 minutes long. Marija said afterwards that Our Lady was very seriously praying, with Her arms stretched out, as though praying over the Valley, the mountains and The Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages, which was near its completion.


From February 1994 to December 1999: Within this period of time, Our Lady gave illuminations of Her plans. She revealed why She appeared in the Bedroom of Apparitions, and later at the Tree. You cannot heal the nation without first healing the family, because nations are made up of families. You cannot heal the family without healing the individual because the family is made up of individuals. You heal the family; you heal the nation and the world. With that revelation, the understanding came of why Our Lady chose to appear in the Bedroom in the majority of Her visits here. It is because the Bedroom represents the family. Appearing over the bed 148 times (as of February 2021), it is clear Our Lady made it “the altar of the family for the healing of a nation.” At the same time, She chose the site under the Pine Tree, where in 1981, an Appeal to Heaven was made, as already stated, through the prayer, “We give you this tree. May all who see this tree, see God in it,” for Her apparitions in the Field which represented the nation. There have been many profound signs given by Our Lady to show this—from appearing Thanksgiving Day, in 1988, to discovering the first flag ever designed for the birth of our nation. This first flag, designed by our Founding Fathers was white, with a Lone Pine Tree in the center, with the words “Appeal to Heaven”! To the patriots, it symbolized their giving their cause to God for the birth of a new nation based in the precepts of Jesus Christ. The flag was in the physical realm, representing the spiritual realm in their seeking God’s deliverance from the tyrannical authority that wanted to keep them as slaves to the king. This, among many other historical and spiritual connections, uncovered over time, set a trajectory to further Our Lady’s plans and brought us to this moment of February 2021.


From 1999-2008: Through several visits of Marija, Our Lady kept manifesting Her plans here, in the Valley at Caritas, strengthening the vision and illuminating the path we were to walk. Our Lady said:


July 24, 1989

“…I need you, dear children, to cooperate with me, because there are today many plans that I cannot fulfill without you. I need your cooperation. ..”


First Consecration of our Nation in the Field of Apparitions, July 3, 2008, time 10:00 PM:

Thousands prayed in the Field of Apparitions in preparation to give the United States of America in Consecration to Our Lady. It was not a Consecration of just people praying at a ceremony that is made up of no more than words and thinking magically that Heaven will act. No, it was a Consecration backed up with thousands of people fasting, millions of prayers being prayed, and blood and sweat, through decades of sacrifices offered by people across the nation and other countries. Fortunate were the ones who were present to recite the Consecration while the Virgin Mary, the Queen of Peace, the Woman of Revelation was appearing in the spiritual realm, listening to the people before Her in the physical realm. There is nothing in history to compare with such wonderful circumstances of a body of people blessed in such a heightened level of prayer, while being directly in front of Our Lady, giving a nation to Her, in unity of heart. For those not present, only through reflection can one realize how surreal a moment it was. Marija relayed that Our Lady was intense.


Second Consecration, July 4, 2008, time 10:00 PM:

A beautiful night under the stars again. Everything was repeated the same as the night before, on July 3rd. Marija, afterwards, said Our Lady accepted the Consecration. Our Lady, giving recognition that July 4th is a Holy Feast Day of our nation, came with three angels and gave the following message in the Field:


“Thank you for all your prayers. Be my extended hands in this peaceless world.”


Third Consecration, a year later, July 3, 2009, time 10:30 PM:

Our Lady was the One who inspired the Consecration of the United States and the nations of the world to Her Immaculate Heart. It was a Consecration that included the entire family of nations around the world. Just as the year before, Our Lady accepted this Consecration. The apparition was long, nearly eight minutes. Our Lady watched everyone as we recited the Consecration prayer and extended Her arms out as the Consecration was prayed. She gave the following message that night, in which She amazingly mentioned of what we were Consecrating the nation for—“everyone in this whole world”:


“Thank you. I need your prayers. I need, dear children, everyone in this world to be my extended hands.”


Marija said Our Lady did something beautiful in this apparition that she had never seen Her do before. When everyone began praying the Consecration prayer, Our Lady turned all the way to the left, with Her arms extended over the crowd, came back to the front, making a 360-degree turning all the way to the right with Her hands extended over all the people on that side while in prayer.


Fourth Consecration, July 4, 2009, time 10:30 PM:

The solemn Consecration took place in the presence of the Queen, again, with thousands reciting vocally the Consecration to Our Lady. Marija said Our Lady stood there watching all present and accepted the Consecration once again. While Our Lady was smiling and happy in this apparition, at the very end, She became very serious. She gave no explanation to the change in Her demeanor.


Fifth Consecration, three years later, July 3, 2012, time 10 PM:

Now armed with three additional years of novenas, fasts, other prayers and sacrifices in our arsenal, Our Lady returned, and yet another Consecration of the United States of America was offered to Her by thousands in the Field. Our Lady appeared for six minutes. It was in this apparition that Our Lady finally gave the formula for the healing of our nation. During the apparition, Marija said that Our Lady prayed over us for our healing and the healing of this country. Our Lady gave the following message:


“Form and make prayer groups through which we will pray for your healing and the healing of this nation to draw closer to God and to Me.”


Sixth Consecration, July 4, 2012, time 10 PM:

Our Lady smiled and watched everyone during the apparition while praying a long time over everyone. Again, Our Lady happily accepted the Consecration. It becomes understood that Our Lady is banking up these Consecrations before the Throne of God, coupled with the Consecrations being backed up with prayer, sacrifice, novenas, fasting, etc.


Seventh Consecration, a year later, July 3, 2013, time 10:30 PM:

The Cross from the Spiritual Realm Manifested into the Physical Realm

It was this year that the Cross on Penitentiary Mountain was built that overlooks the Valley, consecrated to Our Lady. The Cross was built “For the Soul of America” and was consecrated to Her, in Her presence, on June 30, 2013. The six Consecrations previously given (recited) to Our Lady in the Field of Apparitions had words added to it,3 on July 3, 2013, when it was stated in the prayer, “We bind this nation to the Cross.” On this day, Our Lady gave a big surprise to us by giving us two apparitions on one day! She appeared at 6:40 PM in the Bedroom of Apparitions and in that apparition, said She would appear in the Field of Apparitions that night at 10:30 PM. When She appeared later in the evening, She watched everyone present as the Consecration was recited and extended Her hands and prayed a long time over everyone.


Eighth Consecration, the next day, July 4, 2013—time 6:48 PM:

In the apparition on this day, Marija told Our Lady She put all the prayer intentions of the people under Her mantle and Our Lady began to smile, then stretched out Her arms and began praying over everyone. She prayed a long time. She ended this prayer making the Sign of the Cross, giving Her blessing. Marija then asked Our Lady to bless also all the religious articles as a sign of our belonging to Her and that She would bring all our hearts to Her Immaculate Heart, and through this, to the Holy Heart of Jesus. Our Lady smiled again and then blessed all the objects. Our Lady’s smile, given two times in one apparition, was Her message that night in response to the Consecration and the Cross given to Her on behalf of our nation. The smile concerning the Cross built for The Soul of America and its critical importance speaks for itself.

To Bring Our Lady’s Plans
Back to the Present…What was Something Very Big that Happened on July 4, 2020?

Thirty-one years of millions of prayers, fasting, sacrifices, Patriotic Rosaries, for the United States of America and eight Consecrations spanning five years from


July 3, 2008
July 4, 2013


Knowing that these eight Consecrations were accepted by Heaven means something beyond what we can comprehend. Our Lady was navigating us to the time we are in now, of adversity and hatefulness, preventing a great plan of God, for the side of Light, from being extinguished. Our Lady said:


January 25, 1987

“…you are not able to comprehend how great your role is in God’s design…”

And Now Comes the Climax…
Our Lady Reveals an Unexpected Consecration Land Mine that
She Brought about Herself to Complete a Novena of Nine Consecrations!
July 4, 2020, the Final Land Mine
in Our Lady’s Minefield.

On July 4, 2020, an unplanned alignment happened in the physical realm that could only be orchestrated through the spiritual realm. Our Lady has voiced, crystal clear, that She has great plans and that She needs us to collaborate with Her plans, as you’ve read.


On July 4, 2020, the Caritas Community and visiting pilgrims climbed to the Cross on Penitentiary Mountain for apparition time, specifically for our nation and the coming presidential election of 2020. We left one community member in the Field of Apparitions to pray the Rosary because we have prayed the Rosary every day consecutively in the Field ever since Our Lady first appeared there on November 24, 1988, “33” years ago.5


After we arrived at the Cross, I shared with all gathered that earlier in the day, I had spoken with Marija, who was in Medjugorje. She told me upon waking up this morning, July 4th, she went to Apparition Mountain and prayed for America’s birthday. She then said she would, during Her apparition that evening, present America to Our Lady. While we were on the mountain, consecrating our nation to Our Lady, kneeling at the Cross, we joined our hearts and prayers to Marija’s during the time of Her apparition (at 11:40 AM our time, 6:40 PM Medjugorje time) giving the United States of America to Our Lady as She appeared. All this fell together without our orchestrating it. Unknowingly aligned with these events, the day before, on July 3, 2020, President Donald Trump was at Mt. Rushmore, on the eve of our nation’s birth. He stated:


“Our Founders boldly declared that we are all endowed with the same divine rights given us by our Creator in Heaven, and that which God has given us, we will allow no one, ever, to take away ever.


“Seventeen seventy-six represented the culmination of thousands of years of western civilization, and the triumph of not only spirit, but of wisdom, philosophy and reason. And yet, as we meet here tonight, there is a growing danger that threatens every blessing our ancestors fought so hard for, struggled, they bled to secure. Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, and indoctrinate our children.


“Here, tonight, before the eyes of our forefathers, Americans declare again, as we did two hundred and forty-four years ago, that we will not be tyrannized. We will not be demeaned, and we will not be intimidated by bad, evil people. It will not happen.


“We will proclaim the ideals of the Declaration of Independence, and we will never surrender the spirit and the courage and the cause of July 4, 1776. Upon this ground, we will stand firm and unwavering. In the face of lies meant to divide us, demoralize us and diminish us, we will show that the story of America unites us, inspires us, includes us all, and makes everyone free.”


While we were at the Cross, praying The Patriotic Rosary for “The Soul of America,” Marija was before Our Lady in the apparition in Medjugorje, giving our nation to Our Lady, in a Ninth unplanned Consecration Novena to save our nation across a “12”-year span (Our Lady’s number). But what makes it even bigger in importance is that it is understood that President Trump, on that same day, when the Ninth Consecration happened, the novena was completed, on July 4, 2020, prepped by his July 3, 2020, speech at Mt. Rushmore the day before, Trump was making plans to REBIRTH THE REPUBLIC OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Reread President Trump’s words at Mt. Rushmore for the “New” Republic.


“Here, tonight, before the eyes of our forefathers, Americans declare again, as we did two hundred and forty-four years ago, that we will not be tyrannized. We will not be demeaned, and we will not be intimidated by bad, evil people. It will not happen!


We will proclaim the ideals of the Declaration of Independence, and we will never surrender the spirit and the courage and the cause of July 4, 1776. Upon this ground, we will stand firm and unwavering.


President Trump is the rightful, legally elected, President of the United States. The system that changes history which indoctrinated the masses and turned our Republic into a “democracy,” will be crushed. All the might that evil can muster, cannot escape the crushing weight that will strike when the Woman comes to claim what is Her possession (America), given through nine Consecrations of our nation, beginning with a pre-Consecration of the Great Pine in the Field of Apparitions in 1981, that led, five years later, to the July 4, 1986, Consecration in the apparition room in the rectory of St. James Church in Medjugorje.

Our Lady
Is positioning to crush4
The serpent’s head.
Through all this history you have read,
Given in the spiritual realm to you,
Can you now understand
Why the Battle of the Cross
Is so important?


It represents: The Consecration and “The Soul of America,” Evidenced by a traceable Trail of Consecrations.


The land the Cross was erected upon is going to be sold.


At this moment, the land surrounding the Cross, including the land the Cross stands upon, is in the process of being sold. The history of this Cross is filled with one battle after another. Now, the last ongoing battle is the greatest. When it is won, the land acquired will safeguard this Holy site for all future generations. The American flag forewarned victory in the battle against the Japanese when it was raised on Iwo Jima during World War II. On Penitentiary Mountain, the Cross heralds as the flag for the battle, in our time, for The Soul of America, for our nation to come to conversion and back to Christ. The ground being fought for borders the Field of Apparition’s property line. There is a land development that has already been planned and approved. It will destroy the Oasis of Peace Our Lady established here for conversion, a spiritual trinity encompassing the Bedroom of Apparitions, the Field of Apparitions and the Cross on Penitentiary Mountain. The Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages, which is the consecrated building for the mission work of Caritas of Birmingham, is located at the base of the mountain that runs parallel to the mountain where the Cross was built. This spiritual trinity’s purpose is for the birthing and the feeding of conversion and the healing of our nation and, thereby, the healing of many nations across the world.


What has been sanctified by Our Lady, and consecrated, must be preserved. Development destroys conversion. Why? Housing and commercial developments are not motivated by creating “a way of life,” rather for a profit. When development is driven by the dollar, the site loses the grace to lead souls to conversion. A plan has been approved for hundreds of houses to be built on this property. We can only stop it by raising monies to purchase the property.


Scripture tells us why this is urgent:


“Woe to you who add house to house and join field to field till no space is left and you live alone in the land.” Isaiah 5:8


Our Lady said:


June 26, 1986

“Dear children, God is allowing me along with Himself to bring about this oasis of peace. I wish to call on you to protect it and that the oasis always be unspoiled. There are those who by their carelessness are destroying the peace and the prayer…”


We have arranged, through two individuals, to make available 2 MILLION DOLLARS in matching funds! Every dollar you donate will be matched. The goal is to raise 2 million dollars from gifts by all who give, thereby turning it into 4 MILLION, to acquire the Land of the Cross to preserve this place of conversion! Our Lady needs everyone’s gift, to gift many with conversion.


Keep Praying. You Are Making It Happen!

With the continued commitment of matching funds,
we are ¾ of the way to the total goal!!
Leaving only ¼ of the goal left to be raised!

What remains is to have gifts amounting to
$1,105,550.00 to complete the matching funds.

With everyone’s help, we will reach the $4,000,000.00 goal.

However, we will achieve nothing without…Prayer.


Please pray the Prayer to Our Lady at the end of this writing, every morning and evening and remember these intentions at Communion time to help Our Lady’s Cross Fund to be successful in preserving a place of conversion for the future, for what Our Lady has created as an “oasis of peace.”


Reaching the goal and everything that is needed to accomplish, accruing land at the right price, will be impossible without the prayers of everyone. Thank you. We are in a battle, a battle you can help win. You are a participant, in real time, in a beautiful plan Our Lady has laid out. It is an incredible story that will be passed on until the world’s end. From generation upon generation, you are helping to leave a legacy that is helping the Queen of Peace, to the end of time, bring about the conversion of this nation and the conversion of the world. May God rebound back to you His blessing for what you gift for the Cross and the surrounding lands for preservation.


In the Love of Our Lady

Prayer to Our Lady

by a Friend of Medjugorje

O’ Queen, You appeared on February 3, 1994, in the Field of Apparitions, for 10 minutes with Your arms stretched out,* during the whole apparition. You gave two blessings over the Valley and Mountains. We now give You this prayer, asking Your help to keep our arms raised as You did here during this special apparition. We ask for all the graces, of all Your apparitions here will merit this valley and mountain will be preserved as no other place You have consecrated by Your presence.


O’ Queen, as Moses’ arms grew weary and needed to be held up for the battle that Joshua was engaged in, in order for Joshua to be victorious, we need Your help to do the same for us. Please acquire these lands for Your Oasis of Peace “here,” a place of conversion, until the time Your Son comes back. Thank you for Your constant intercession for us. Amen.

* Medjugorje visionary Marija described this apparition as a long apparition and Marija said that Our Lady prayed very seriously. We all felt something; a sense of mystery was felt in our hearts. Our founder felt it was some kind of seal that Our Lady was placing over the Valley for the future.

Our Lady comes in the light of the sun

1. The writings being referred to are the writings of a Friend of Medjugorje, propagated by grace throughout the world, that have given Our Lady a voice, over the past 35 years, regarding important issues and events of our day. A Friend of Medjugorje coined the phrase, “placing Our Lady’s messages as a template” over every happening that we are experiencing today. Refusing to keep Our Lady in a box, a Friend of Medjugorje has dared to speak on every topic that applies to mankind today, utilizing Our Lady’s words to bring wisdom that often goes contrary to the politically correct world we live in. From the television to politics, cell phones, education, the agrarian life, modernism, food production, healthcare, historical events, money, marrigae and divorce, raising children, war and battles–no topic is avoided no matter how controversial. Personally called by Our Lady to “witness with your life,” he has lived through great suffering and trials which has given him endurance in living the life of Our Lady’s messages. His, is a courageous voice that speaks truth to power, not for the sake of building his own name, but for the purpose of opening up a wound so that the infection can be drained and the wound can heal. A Friend of Medjugorje has made both friends and foes by what he writes, which does not concern him. His desire is only to be obedient to what he feels Our Lady inspires him to give a voice to. What we know, through 35 years of his writings, is that hearts go through conversion when they are forced to wrestle with topics and issues that a Friend of Medjugorje brings to the surface, refusing to keep them hidden for the sake of protecting his own reputation. His authority to say and write what he does comes through his life’s witness. Our Lady foresaw he would be a voice for the written word. Our Lady told him, through Medjugorje visionary, Marija:

“…by your life witness, not with words but rather through prayer will you attain what your desire is…” October 6, 1986


2. As the picture shows, it was June 12, 2013, when a Friend of Medjugorje wrote in the cement in the foundation of the Cross, “For the Soul of America.” For five years, a Friend of Medjugorje publicized the phrase, “For the Soul of America,” throughout many Catholic circles. Joe Biden began using the same phrase five years after the Cross was erected, when on August 27, 2017, he wrote an article entitled, “We are Living Through a Battle for the Soul of This Nation.” From that moment, the phrase, “For the Soul of America,” began appearing in his speeches throughout 2018, 2019 and in 2020, he made it his campaign slogan for his run for the presidency. Kamala Harris also began using it in her speeches as well. Just a cursory search came up with repeated examples where Biden and Harris publicly used the phrase constantly over a three year period. Can one think this was “coincidence”? Not if one understands how the physical realm and the spiritual realm constantly overlap each other.

3. A Friend of Medjugorje wrote the Consecration Prayer in Medjugorje on June 24, 2008. In 2013, after he planned for the Cross to be built and when it was near completion, he added these words to his original Consecration prayer, to include the Cross.

4. The above was written weeks before Our Lady gave the February 25, 2021, monthly message. She said, “…wars can be suppressed…” The word “suppressed,” is defined in Webster’s 1828 Dictionary as “crushed.”

5. “33 years ago…” Referring to the fact that every day in the Field at apparition time, since September 1, 1989, a consecration of everything in the Valley and the mountains themselves, takes place through a prayer titled, “Prayer for the Abode of God.” Part of this prayer of consecration states, “I ask you [God] to establish Her [Our Lady’s] heavenly Queenship here as no other place on earth… I consecrate every plant, animal, person and the mountains themselves to You so that Our Lady, Jesus and You might dwell here, Amen.” Therefore, 11,499 consecrations, from September 1, 1989 to February 24, 2021, have occured through this prayer by multiple people each day.
