Children of the Renewal Messages
October 23, 2016 Adoration Chapel
Hello, my Jesus ever present in the Sacrament of the Altar! I love You, Jesus! I love You, Jesus! I love You, Jesus! It is so good to be here with You, my Lord and my God. Thank You for Your mercy and goodness and for Your love, Jesus! Lord, thank You for our visit with (name withheld) yesterday. We treasured our time with him and the time spent on that holy ground. Thank You, also for the opportunity to see the beautiful church (name withheld). I didn’t want to leave the church and adoration chapel there. It is very beautiful. I felt close to Heaven there. Lord, thank You also for allowing us to see (names withheld) and the children. I also thank You for the meeting with (names withheld) whom we’d never met but felt as if I’d known them for years. It was a joyful day. Truly it was! Thank You, Jesus. You are full of beautiful surprises, Jesus. After Mass last evening at our parish I was pleasantly surprised to see (name withheld), her children and husband at our church! This was really a lovely day, Lord. Thank You! You fill my life with such good things, my sweet Savior and I am very grateful! Thank You for holy Mass and Communion and for the visiting priests, (names withheld). Thank You for keeping (name withheld) safe on his pilgrimage and for bringing him back to us safely.
Lord, we are in need of Your direction. You know all that is going on at (location withheld) since You know everything. Is it time for us to sell our house, Jesus? Should we accept the invitation/proposition made to us for an additional platt? Jesus, You said to bring every decision to You, so that is what we are doing. Please give us guidance, Jesus if it is Your holy Will.
Jesus, have You anything to say to me?
“Yes, My child. Thank you for visiting (name withheld) today and for showing My mercy. I am pleased when My children perform acts of mercy in love. I am grateful for your conversation with My son, (name withheld) yesterday. It was My plan that you meet and I am pleased you allowed My Spirit to flow through you.”
Lord, the pleasure was all mine. (Name withheld) has a beautiful soul and he loves You and Your Holy Mother Mary so very much. Help him to get to Medjugorje. He so wants to be there with Our Lady.
“My child, I am pleased that you were open with him about the communities My Mother is forming. He has a heart for God and would do well to be in a community.”
Yes, Jesus, I pray he will find one that is part of Your plan for his life and if it be Your Will, may it be (community name withheld). Lord, I pray for those who are ill. For (names withheld). Please help them, Lord. I pray for (name withheld) friends who are ill, and for (names withheld). Please help (name withheld), Jesus. She seems to be suffering so.
“My daughter, My little one there are many lost souls in the world who are in need of Me, their Savior. Pray for them. Offer prayers of petition on their behalf, for they are in darkness and in danger of losing their souls.”
Yes, Jesus. Lord, I pray for my brothers and sisters who are lost and are in darkness. Open their eyes, their hearts and their minds to You, the Light of the World. Illuminate them with Your love and mercy. Show them that You are the Only, the One True God the Most High who created Heaven and earth, who Willed this world into existence because of Your love. Show my lost brothers and sisters what it is to walk in the light of Your love. Help them to see that You welcomed sinners when You walked the earth. You dined with us, sinners. You are kind, generous, and merciful. You are the Savior of the World and You love contrite hearts. You love sinners and the ocean of mercy is opened for the whole world. There is no one more deserving of Your mercy than the worst sinner according to what You told St. Faustina, and so Jesus show the depth of Your mercy to those who are lost and afraid. Show them Your kindness so they will not be afraid to approach the fountain of Your mercy. Jesus, give them heroic graces for repentance and conversion. Give all of us these graces, for we are all sinners.
Lord, send Your Most Holy Mother Mary, who is pure and undefiled to retrieve lost souls, to take their hands and lead them to the throne of grace. Jesus, Your Mother Mary has amazing intuition and knows just what Her children need. She can stoop down to the lowest levels of humanity, and as a good mother, wash the mud and dirt from our bodies and souls, dress us in fine clothes and present us to You, our Savior. She stands between our sinful nature and the great justice of God and because of Her unbelievable love and through Her eternal ‘yes’ to God the Father, have mercy on us who have sinned against You and our neighbor. Fill every hard heart with graces for love, kindness and mercy. Jesus, Savior of the World, save us from our pride, our hardened hearts, our egos, our selfishness and our materialism. Save us, Savior of the World for by Your cross and resurrection, You have set us free. Set my lost brothers and sisters free, Jesus. Free them from their sins and also from the consequences of their sins. Accept their souls, Jesus and their sinfulness and plunge their sins and the sins of all the world into the depth of Your mercy. Create clean hearts in us Oh, Lord and put steadfast spirits in us all. Remove the blinders from our eyes and give us Your Spirit of truth, beauty, love, joy and mercy. Thank You for Your great mercy, Jesus, for without it all of us would perish.
“Thank you for your prayers, My little lamb. I embrace your requests and hold them close to My Sacred, Merciful Heart. My child, it will soon be time to sell your house, but it is not yet time. Continue to prepare to move, so you will not be caught with little time to prepare. I aim for you to have peace in your hearts. Preparing now will afford much peace later. Do not be concerned with anything regarding My Mother’s community, for all will be well. These struggles and challenges are part of a learning process and serve to strengthen and purify hearts. You will see that this is a final step in the process before My Mother’s community comes to fruition. Regarding additional property, continue to pray and seek My direction. All will be revealed to you in due time and you will know what action to take. Be a source of encouragement and wisdom. I am with you. Continue to pray within your family and also with your community. This is very important. Through prayer I will direct you. You will also grow closer to Me through your prayers and this growth is necessary for what is to come. Continue to follow Me, My child. All will be well, though this does not mean, all will be easy. No, that is not My way. When things are too easy for My children, their souls tend toward being lukewarm. I intend My Spirit to fill you with the fire of love so that your fellow brothers and sisters who are lost, will be prepared by your love, for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit when the time comes to renew the face of the earth.”
Thank You, Jesus. Thank You! Jesus, please help (name withheld) who is depressed, anxious and afraid. Grant her Your peace, Jesus. Help her to come to know and experience Your love. Please, Jesus, You said You would pursue our family members. Jesus, please pursue each member of my family and my husband’s family who do not know Your love and mercy. Free them, Jesus from the spiritual blindness and heal any wounds they have that are obstacles to You. Assure them of Your love, Your mercy, Your peace. Please, Jesus, come. Come into their hearts. Fill them with the fire of Your love, Jesus. Jesus, I beg this of You and remind You that You said You would.
“My child, My child. How I long to do all that You have requested. You, you take My love to them. You, you go to them and show them the peace that resides deep within your soul; the joy in your heart; the tenderness that I have graciously and generously given you. You, take this to them and by your love, they will see Me. This is what I ask of you.”
Oh, my Jesus. I will do this. I do not know how to convey these things adequately because I am poor. I do not possess the wealth of these graces, Jesus but I will certainly go and trust that You, Jesus will make Yourself known to (name withheld) and her children and (name withheld) when you bring him back to (place withheld), that You are the reason for my hope, my joy and my love (limited as it is). Yes, Jesus. Send me. I will go, but Jesus, You must go with me. You must fill me with all that they need. I don’t know what to say or do, but I will go. Jesus, use me as Your instrument, only tune me, polish me and cleanse me. I am an unworthy vessel, but I have come to know that this does not stop You from working. In fact, it only serves to glorify You. Thank You, Lord that You will use anyone! No matter how small; no matter how poor; no matter how uneducated. I love this about You, Jesus. You love the sinner. You love the poor. You love those who are small. Thank You, Jesus for loving all of Your children. Jesus, give me You, so that I may give You to others.
“My little lamb, you have Me. You give Me away to others, so you must also give Me to those who do not believe and who live in darkness. I know you feel inadequate. I know that you are afraid of saying something that will further turn them away or cause them to harden their hearts all the more. My little child, this is something you must leave to your Jesus. Your only concern is to give My love and mercy to others. It is not your responsibility to get them to accept My love for that is up to them. I will guide you in what you are to say. I will grant an opening for you and I will go before you. You will be walking into mission territory, armed with the Good News and full of My love which you received in the most Holy Sacrament last evening. My joy will arise from your soul like a canticle and even if you are unaware, My graces will flow through you like living springs of water flow upon parched soil. Though the soil is parched, My water will bring forth life. Take this upon you now, for this is My mission for you. This will be the ingredient required for their conversion. Do not worry, My child. This sounds as if I am placing a large burden on your shoulders, but I will give you every grace needed, My little lamb, so do not worry but rejoice for your brother’s and sister’s salvation is close at hand. Now, rejoice in what I have told you. My word goes forth and since I am the Word, My Word brings everlasting life. Rest assured, My child, that My words are truth. I am pursuing your family members and all that has occurred serves to plow the hard soil of hearts. You, now must go so that My Word, My love, will be planted as seeds for their souls. My child, see how much I love?”
Oh, yes, Jesus. You are the greatest of all lovers, for You love even those who refuse to return Your love. Your love for us never dies, but burns brightly and even more intensely in Your Sacred, beautiful, Divine Heart, for those who do not know You and do not love You. Lord, how can anyone not love You? You are all love and mercy, kindness and truth. I love You, my Jesus. Help me to love You more. Help me to give Your love to others, Jesus. There are so many hurting people in this world, who have lost hope. Restore the hope in their wounded hearts, Lord and help them to love and believe in You. Since faith is a gift, Jesus, please give all heroic graces for faith, contrition, repentance and conversion so that many come to know that You are the Living God.
“Thank you, My child for your love. Thank you for your kindness and for loving souls. Thank you for loving Me so much that you want what I want, that none perish. My child, I know you are weak. I know well, all there is to know about you and I also know that we are friends. You have never forsaken Me, My loyal little friend. Yes, you are poor and weak and this is why I love you so much, My little lamb. Have no fear, for though you are weak—I am all powerful. Though you are poor, I am the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. Though you are empty, I am the fullness of all that is good and because of your emptiness, I can fill you full of My life and My love. So, have no fear. Bring Me to others and I will do the rest.’
Praise You, my Lord and my God, my All. Praise You in every living thing and in all that You created. Praise You, Jesus and may every living creature give honor and glory to You, Lord of Lords and King of Kings. Jesus, You have the words of everlasting life, for You are the Word made flesh. Fill me with Your words of life so that I can bring good tidings to those who live in darkness. Jesus, may all who love and follow You be bearers of the Christ, the Light of the World, to banish the darkness and the evil that plagues the earth. Fill us with Your light so that we may bring Your light to others. Help us, Lord for we cannot do this without Your grace and the wisdom and joy of the Holy Spirit.
“My child, how I love those who love Me. How I desire all to love Me. My heart is on fire for love of lost souls. If you knew how much pain I have due to the rebelliousness of My children and if you knew how much their lack of love wounds My Sacred Heart, all of My children would evangelize by sharing the Good News of My love and salvation for souls. My Children of Light, you will one day be My Children of the Renewal. You will grieve if you have not been a conduit for My grace so that others are saved. This will bring such sorrow to your hearts so do not allow this to happen. Bring Me to those who do not know Me. Be love. Be joy. Be mercy. Be peace. Transform your lives by My love so that through you I can transform others. Be My witness, by being My love. I will give you what is needed each day for the enormous task I have laid before you. This is not a surprise, My children for these words are in Sacred Scripture and you are all to be My witnesses to the world. But, My children you are not all doing this, and so I come to call you to the battlefield. Bring Me, the Messiah into the world. You were made to know, love and serve Me. You were made to love Me, and to love Me in order to live in My kingdom forever. I gave My life for you so that you will have eternal life. Someone told you about Me. Someone taught you about Me. You go, therefore and do the same.”
Yes, Jesus. Thank You, Jesus.
“My little lamb, there are not two different missions for your family; one for now and one for later, but there is one mission. One will flow into the other. You work in My mission field now. All of you. Each one, no matter how small, even My little warrior, (name withheld) who carries My cross high for all to see (especially, My [name withheld]). Be busy about the work I have given you and think nothing of the cost. All that you do; all that you sacrifice, be it sleep, be it your time, even your very lives that you are living now unselfishly, to secure the Kingdom of God for others—nothing goes unnoticed by My Father in Heaven. So, be of good cheer. All will be well. Continue in your life of prayer, good deeds and in your love for Me and for one another. This is the life of holiness. This is a share in My life. Tell My son (name withheld) of My love for him and that he is doing a good work for Me when he shares his love for Me with others. My (names withheld) you are on the path of salvation and I ask that you bring others with you. I will show you how. Go now in peace. Be joy. Be love. Be mercy. Be Christ to others. Do not focus on that which you lack,. For I supply all that is needed. As for those who are ill, have no fear. I am with them. I am with My son (name withheld). I am with My daughter (name withheld) and I will supply all that they need. Be at peace, My children. I love you and I am with you. Offer your suffering as a living sacrifice for the salvation of souls. I am counting on you to be My witnesses. Be at peace. All will be well.”
Thank You, thank You, thank You, Jesus. You are our love. You are our joy. You are the very life of our souls. We live for You, Jesus. Thank You for stooping down to us and showing us that You care for our every need and concern. Praise You, holy God. We love You, adore You and praise You. I love You, my sweet Jesus! I am all yours, and all that I have is Yours.
“And all that I have is yours, My child. Your inheritance, and this is true for all of My Children of Light, awaits you in Heaven. For now, be busy with My Father’s work, for you must continue to labor in His vineyard for a time, and then another time will come. I love you and I am with you, now and forever. Go now, My little ones. I bless you in My Father’s name, in My name and in the name of My Holy Spirit. I am your Shepherd and I go before you. Have confidence in all that I ask of you for I am with you.”
Amen. Alleluia! Praise You, Jesus! Thank You, Jesus.
October 16, 2016 Adoration Chapel
Hello, dearest Jesus ever present in the Blessed Sacrament. I believe in You, adore You, praise You and thank You, my God and my King. Thank You for Your presence here, Jesus! It is good to be with You. Lord, I bring to You all those in my family who are ill especially (names withheld). I pray for those of my friends who are ill also (names withheld) and for all those who are in need.
Lord, I also pray for peace in my heart, in the hearts of my family members and for peace in the world. For our Bishops and priests, religious and missionaries and for protection in this turbulent time. Jesus, please grant us Your peace; grant us graces for conversion and for the outpouring of Your Holy Spirit.
I pray for the work needed at (location withheld) to bring about approval so we can begin to build and move there. Please, Jesus bring this work to completion if it is Your holy Will and Your timing. You know what we need, Jesus and what is best for us. Thank You for Your kindness and Your mercy!
“My child, I am pleased that you decided for Me today and for being with me in My Eucharistic presence.”
Jesus, I am most concerned for our country and the state of souls here and in the world. Help us, Jesus. Help us to open our hearts to You, to repent and convert.
“My child, souls are converting through the graces poured out from My Most Holy Mother Mary’s hands. More prayers are needed from Our children. The world is in peril due to evil in the hearts of many who follow My adversary. You are right to be concerned. Pray and fast. Frequent the Sacraments. I encourage My children to take advantage of the year granted by My son. This Year of Mercy is a great grace given the world by God the Father. Do not waste this time of grace but frequent the Sacraments and enter through the designated Holy Doors during this Year of Mercy. It will soon come to an end, My children. Take advantage of the time remaining in this Year of Mercy. I call My Children of Light to spread this great grace which My Father is giving to the world through My Most Holy Mother Mary and through Pope Frances, My son. I call all to conversion and to peace. Choose life, My children. Choose the life of Heaven for your souls. The time to choose is now while you are dwelling in this land, for later, when the time of your earthly pilgrimage has ended, it will be too late. Pray more, My children. I will guide and direct you through your prayers. Listen to Me. Love Me. I will not abandon you but you must not abandon Me, My little children. Be alert. Be aware. Remain on guard for indeed, these are perilous times, and yet through prayer, you will know joy and peace.”
“My children, it does not seem possible to experience joy in your souls when you live in times of darkness, but it is possible in the life of faith. The life of faith and prayer brings joy in spite of the worldly condition and I implore you to come to know Me in a more intimate way through prayer so that I may fill you with My peace, My love and My joy. In this way, you will stand in stark contrast to the worldly souls who will want to know you and in doing so will learn about Me. Spread My love, little children to every dark corner of the world. Start by loving your families. Start by having peace and joy no matter the circumstances. From your families you will spread love, peace, joy and mercy to others and so on and so forth until there are rays of light, spiritual light illuminating the darkness. My children, you must be joyful Christians or you do not portray the Gospel in truth and love. How can you bring My love to the world, when you are sad and consumed with worry. How can you be a witness to My mercy when you judge others and criticize them? No, My children, this is not what I, your Jesus want from My children. This does not attract souls, but instead turns them away from the light. Instead, be a sign of contradiction. Be a sign of hope. Encourage the down hearted. Be a light. Spread My joy, My peace, My mercy to those around you so that they will come to know the love of God. If you do not feel joyful, it is because you are focusing on the wrong things. Focus on Me, My children and all that I have done for you. You have troubles, it is true. It is impossible to escape problems in this fallen world, but surrender everything to Me, My little ones for I will take care of everything. When you want to solve all of your problems, I do not interfere. Remember, God’s gift to mankind is free will, so that you may love God freely. Therefore, exercise your free will by trusting in Me for all things and I will resolve your problems in due time. If, however, you hold onto each problem, refusing My help, or ordering My Will in the way you want, I am operating under man’s constraints. This will not do My children. Many of you carry great burdens which you stubbornly carry and refuse to give to Me. Praying about them, is good, but more is required. You must pray, but then you must also trust in Me to resolve each problem as I see fit, for I know what is best. I want what is best for each and every soul. I also want you to learn to trust your Jesus. Until you begin to trust Me, and surrender your problems to Me, I am unable to help you, due to the operation of your free will. The more trust you have within your soul, the more I am able to work in your lives and in the lives of those you love. I am ready and waiting, dear children. Give your burdens to Me and trust Me to resolve the problems and concerns of your hearts. I am your Savior. I died so that you would be free. The sins you have committed have consequences both in this life and after you die, so learn now to live the life of grace with frequent confession and reception of Me in Holy Communion.”
“Take advantage of this Year of Mercy and of each opportunity for mercy (Divine Mercy Sunday, confession, etc.) and show My mercy to others. You must forgive one another and stop judging and criticizing. Spread forgiveness and joy. Overlook the shortcomings of others. Live the Gospel, My children. It is long overdue. The world is in great danger and souls are at stake. You must live lives of holiness and love so that others will come to know Me through you. I am doing more in this age than in all other ages, save My life, death and resurrection. All of Heaven is doing their part through prayers of intercession. My Holy Mother Mary brings God’s words to you, personally through the spring of grace flowing from Medjugorje. Now, it is time that Our children take seriously the call from Heaven and work for your brother’s and sister’s souls that are in grave danger. I implore you to put aside all that is of this age and of this world and live for Heaven now, while you are living on earth. I will raise saints in this age like never before, if you do as I request.”
“My children, it is as if you are on a team and in double overtime with the score tied. You have only minutes remaining, and you are all tired. The victory goes to the ones who are focused and who desire to win without considering how tired they are. The victory goes to the team who plays to win, but does not try to get glory for themselves. The victory goes to the team who plays unselfishly for they are focused on winning as a team and not for recognition as individuals. The team who loses, begins to focus on their tired and aching muscles and on what they will do after the game. They think about the sacrifices they have made to get this far and wonder if it was worth it. They become distracted and begin to lose their ‘edge’. The team that is focused and motivated gains the advantage in this moment and surges toward victory. You see, My children, you are weary, but you must not focus on your weariness. You must only focus on Me. I will carry you, but you are becoming distracted by materialism, by sports, by entertainment, as these things take your minds off of your problems for a time. Recognize this, My children. When you focus on the things of this world, the enemy who competes for your souls, gains momentum and takes advantage of you. You are unprotected, apart from Me. You must come away from the things of this world that distract you. These times are like no other and I do mean they are like NO other time in the history of mankind. I am counting on you, My Children of Light to be aware of the seriousness of the battle. There is no time to relax and take a vacation from your duties and your prayer. To do so is like laying down your weapons, just as the enemy is attacking. Do not do this, My children. Take up your arms and do not put them down. Be people of prayer, people of the rosary. Be people of God. Just as Moses had to keep his hands held high for victory over the Amelikites, so must My people continue to pray the rosary daily, to frequent Mass and the Sacraments; to read holy scripture and live the Gospel. These, My children are your spiritual weapons to defeat evil. Do not grow weary in the heat of battle and lay down your weapons. This is a call to re-engage and to stay engaged. If you only knew the spiritual battle raging around you and around all on the earth you would do nothing but your daily duties, spending time in prayer, helping your neighbor and going to holy Mass. My children, you do not understand the perilous time in which you are living, but take My word for it and believe. Souls are at stake, My children and once they are lost they are lost forever. Cooperate with Me. Cooperate with My Mother. Your brothers’ and sisters’, daughters’ and sons’, mothers’ and fathers’ souls are at stake. Your prayers, your holy lives, make a difference.”
Thank You, Jesus. Help us to do as You say, Jesus so that Your plan will be realized soon and Your Will be done on earth as in Heaven. Give us the graces we need to do Your holy Will.
Lord, please protect the little children who are unprotected by their parents. Lord, how can we help them, when we don’t know who they are or where they are? Jesus, my heart aches for little ones who are abused, deserted, taken advantage of, and who are afraid each and every day of their little lives. Jesus, how are we to help them? What are we to do?
“Pray for them, My daughter. Pray for them. Love them. Fast for them. I will reveal what you and My son, (name withheld) are to do. I will show you the way. They, the children I have designated be helped by you, will find you. You will find them, but first you must focus in praying for them. Then I will work through the circumstances of your lives and theirs and will bring you together. You will take them into your hearts and into your homes. All will come to fruition, My child. Trust in Me and prepare yourselves by going deeper into prayer and the sacramental life, for your souls need to be prepared for this important work, in order to fully love and to be ready to make the sacrifices that will come from loving and following Me. It is not yet time, My children, but soon the time will come. Prepare yourselves, but also live in joy. You must learn to live in joy for love and joy is the balm for wounded souls who are living lives of fear, amidst hatred and abuse. Love, joy, peace and mercy must reign in your hearts and you must learn to live this now while it is easier to do so. In this way, the joy and love of God will take root in your souls and will grow and bloom in the appointed time. Do you understand, My (name withheld) and My (name withheld)? Live joy, peace and love now. Live mercy now. The time to begin is now.”
Yes, Jesus. Thank You, Jesus. Praise You, Jesus. Help us to embrace Your word and to open our hearts to the graces to love heroically. Give us Your grace, Jesus to do all that You ask so that we are Your instruments of love. I love You, Jesus. Help me to love You more.
“Thank you, My child. All will be done, according to My Will. Thank you for your ‘yes’ to the plan of My Father. Hold fast to My Most Holy Mother Mary, for She will guide you in the way to go. She will keep you in lockstep with My plan. Trust in Her, also My children. She is Mary Most Pure. She is your Mother, too and I want all of My children to embrace My Holy Mother Mary. She will teach you and you will learn quickly in the school of love with My Mother as your teacher. Be at peace, My children. Live apart from this world so that the stains of this disobedient culture do not tarnish your hearts and your souls. Be separated from evil and all forms of vice. Remain steadfast in your faith and with your life of prayer, nourish the love you have been given until it overflows your little hearts and pours out into the world, touching lives and hearts in need of My love. Follow Me, My children. Follow Me.”
Thank You, Lord Jesus. Praise You. Help us, Jesus to do and to be what You want. Blessed Mother, take our hearts stained with sin, selfishness and pride and give us Your pure, Immaculate Heart that is full of love for all. Give us Your heart. Transform our hearts into Your heart. Give us Your motherly wisdom and mercy. Help us to have joy just as Jesus was Your cause of joy. Help us to be like little children, full of love, trust, peace and joy. Lead us to full communion with Your Son, holy Mary. Thank You, Mother for loving us and for never tiring in Your love of us. Thank You for interceding before the throne of God for each and every person in this world, for all are Your children. Thank You that no matter what we have done, You love and forgive us just as Jesus loves and forgives for You are His Mother, the first and most perfect disciple who gave up Your life to bring the Savior of the world to fallen man. Thank You for Your ‘yes’, Holy Mary Mother of God, Mother of our Redeemer, Mother of Mercy, Queen of Peace. I love You, dearest Mother Mary. Help me to love You more so that I will love Your Son more, as well, teach me Your ways. Blessed Mother. School me in the love and wisdom of Your Son. Be with me, dear Mother as I go through each day leading, guiding, correcting and teaching me. Give me every grace needed to be a good follower and daughter of our Lord.
Jesus, thank You for Your words and for Your guidance. I love You, my Lord and my God, my All.
“I love you also, My child. Go now in peace. I bless you in My Father’s name, in My name and in the name of My Holy Spirit. Be love. Be joy. Be mercy. Be peace. Bring My love to all you meet. I am with you.”
Thank You, Lord God. Amen! Alleluia!
