THE MESSAGES
 

The messages during the apparitions are completed by the messages of the ecstasies. The length of these various messages varies between one sentence and a paragraph. Among the messages during the ecstasies, one is missing. Indeed, emotionally shaken by the prayer of a Muslim woman, Myrna has not been able to remember the message relayed to her at this occasion. The messages are confided in literary or in dialectal Arabic. The vocabulary is very simple. The Holy Virgin has confided to Myrna a secret that she is not to reveal until her death. Often before delivering the message, Myrna would say for example: "Christ has given me a message to which I have not understood anything."



This translation is literal, rather than literary. October 21st, 1996.

MESSAGES FROM JESUS CHRIST AND THE HOLY VIRGIN MARY CONFIDED TO MYRNA NAZZOUR;
THE STIGMATIST AND VISIONARY  OF SOUFANIEH (DAMASCUS, SYRIA)



First apparition of the Holy Virgin - Wednesday, December 15, 1982

Given Myrna's state of panic, the first message was given to her on the second apparition.

Second apparition, First message - Saturday, December 18, 1982, 11:37 pm

My children,
Remember God, because God is with us.
You know all things and yet you know nothing.
Your knowledge is an incomplete knowledge.
But the day will come when you will know all things the way God knows Me.
Do good to those who do evil.
And do not harm anyone.
I have given you oil more than you have asked for,
but I shall give you something much more powerful than oil.
Repent and have faith, and remember Me in your joy.
Announce My Son the Emmanuel.
He who announces Him is saved, and he who does not announce Him, his faith is vain.
Love one another.
I am not asking for money to give to churches, nor for money to distribute to the poor.
I am asking for love.
Those who distribute their money to the poor and to churches,
but have no love, those are nothing.
I shall visit homes more often, because those who go to church, sometimes, do not go there to pray.
I am not asking you to build Me a church, but a shrine.
Give.
Do not turn away anyone who asks for help.

Third apparition, Second message - Saturday, January 8, 1983, 11:37 pm

The Virgin was crying.
She told Myrna: "It's all right."
Myrna was also crying, while shouting, "The Virgin is crying!"
At last, the Virgin withdrew, but before disappearing, She smiled softly.

Fourth apparition, Third message - Monday, February 21, 1983, 9:30 pm

My children,
Let it be said between us, I have come back here.
Do not insult the haughty who are devoid of humility.
The humble person craves other people's remarks to correct his shortcomings,
while the corrupt and haughty neglects, rebels, becomes hostile.
Forgiveness is the best thing.
He who pretends to be pure and loving before people, is impure before God.
I would like to request something from you, a word that you will engrave in your memory, that you shall always repeat:
God saves me, Jesus enlightens me, the Holy Spirit is my life, thus I fear nothing.
Is it not so, My son Joseph ?
Forbear and forgive.
Forbear much less than the Father has forborne.

Fifth apparition, Fourth message - Thursday, March 24, 1983, 9:30 pm

My children,
My mission has ended.
That night, the Angel told Me:
"Blessed are thou amongst women."
And I was only able to tell Him that "I am the Servant of the Lord."
I am happy.
I Myself do not deserve to tell you: "Your sins are forgiven."
But My God has said it.
Establish a church. I did not say: "Build a church."
The Church that Jesus adopted is One Church, because Jesus is One.
The Church is the kingdom of Heaven on earth.
He who has divided it has sinned.
And he who has rejoiced from its division has also sinned.
Jesus built it.
It was small.
And when it grew, it became divided.
He who divided it has no love in him.
Gather!
I tell you: "Pray, pray, and pray again!"
How beautiful are My children when they kneel down, imploring.
Do not fear, I am with you.
Do not be divided as the great ones are.
You, yourselves, will teach the generations THE WORD of unity, love and faith.
Pray for the inhabitants of earth and Heaven.


THE ECSTASIES, FIRST PERIOD
FROM OCTOBER 28, 1983 TO NOVEMBER, 26, 1985

Message from the Holy Virgin - Friday, October 28, 1983

Do not fear, all this is happening to glorify the name of God.
Do not fear, in you I shall educate My generation.

Message from the Holy Virgin - Friday, November 4, 1983

Go down and tell them that you are My daughter before being theirs...
My heart has been consumed over My only Son.
It will not be consumed over all My children.

Message from the Holy Virgin - Friday, November 25, 1983

This is all I want.
I have not come to separate.
Your married life will remain as it is...
Would you like to come to Me?... Come...
Your willingness (to come to Me) is enough.

Message from Jesus Christ - Thursday, May 31, 1984 (Ascension Day)

My daughter,
I am the Beginning and the End.
I am Truth, Freedom and Peace.
My Peace, I give you.
Your peace shall not depend on what people say, be it good or bad, and think little of yourself.
He who does not seek people's approval, and does not fear their disapproval, enjoys true peace.
And this is achieved through Me.
Live your life, contented and independent.
The pains you have incurred for Me shall not break you.
Rather, rejoice. I am capable of rewarding you.
Your hardships will not be prolonged, and your pains will not last.
Pray with adoration, because Eternal life is worth these sufferings.
Pray for God's will to be done in you, and say:

Only then will I come to say: Here I am, because you have invited Me.

Message from the Holy Virgin - Friday, September 7, 1984

The Virgin Mary entrusts Myrna with a secret: "This is between you and Me until your death."
Myrna remembers from the message only the following words: "Live your life, but let not life prevent you from continuing to pray."

Message from the Holy Virgin - Wednesday, May 1, 1985

My children, assemble.
My heart is wounded.
Do not allow My heart to break because of your divisions.
My daughter, I shall give you a gift for your hardships.

Message from the Holy Virgin (Hassaké, Syria) - Sunday, August 4, 1985

The Church is the kingdom of Heaven on earth.
He who has divided it has sinned.
And he who has rejoiced from its division has also sinned.
I am happy: do not fear, I am with you.
In you I shall educate My generation.

Message from the Holy Virgin - Wednesday, August 14, 1985

Happy anniversary.
It is always a feast for Me whenever I see you all gathered together.
Your prayer is My feast.
Your faith is My feast.
The union of your hearts is My feast.

Message from Jesus Christ - Saturday, September 7, 1985

I am the Creator.
I created Her, so that She could create Me.
Rejoice from the joy of Heaven,
because the Daughter of the Father
and the Mother of God
and the Spouse of the Spirit is born.
Exult from the exultation of the earth, because your salvation is fulfilled.

Message from Jesus Christ - Tuesday, November 26, 1985 - Eve of the third anniversary of the phenomenon

My daughter,
Do you wish to be crucified or glorified?
Answer: Glorified.
Christ smiles and says:
Do you prefer to be glorified by the creature or the Creator?
Answer: by the Creator.
Christ: This is realized through Crucifixion.
Because each time you look at the creatures,
the eyes of the Creator move away from you.
My daughter, I want you to apply yourself to praying and to humble yourself.
He who humbles himself, God increases him in strength and in greatness.
I was crucified out of love for you, and I want you to carry and bear your cross for Me,
willingly, with love and patience, and (I want you) to await My arrival.
He who participates in My suffering, I shall make him participate in My glory.
And there is no salvation for the soul except through the Cross.
Do not fear, My daughter,
I shall give you from My wounds enough to repay the debts of the sinners.
This is the source from which every soul may drink.
And if My absence lasts, and the light disappears from you, do not fear, this will be for My glorification.
Go to the land where corruption has prevailed, and remain in God's peace.


THE ECSTASIES, SECOND PERIOD
FROM NOVEMBER 26, 1986 TO AUGUST 14, 1987

Message from Jesus Christ - Wednesday, November 26, 1986 - Eve of the fourth anniversary of the phenomenon

My daughter,
How beautiful is this place.
I shall build My kingdom and My peace in it.
I give My heart to (all of) you so that I may obtain your heart(s).
Your sins are forgiven, because you look towards Me.
And in he who looks towards Me, I shall paint My image in him.
Woe to him who represents My image but has ransomed My blood.
Pray for the sinners.
Because for each word of prayer, I shall spill a drop of My blood on one of the sinners.
My daughter, let not earthly matters trouble you, because through My wounds you will gain eternity.
I want to renew My Passion, and I want you to accomplish your mission.
You will not be able to enter Heaven unless you have accomplished your mission on earth.
Go in peace, and tell My children to come to Me any time, and not only when I renew the feast of My Mother.
Because I am with them at all times.

Message from Jesus Christ - Saturday, April 18, 1987 (Holy Saturday)

I have given you a sign to glorify Me.
Continue along this path and I am with you.
For if you do not...

Message from Jesus Christ - Thursday, May 28, 1987 (Ascension Day)

Love one another and pray with faith.

Message from Jesus Christ (Màad, Lebanon) - Wednesday, July 22, 1987

Do not fear, My daughter, in you I shall educate My generation.
Pray, pray, and pray again!
And if you pray, say: "O Father, through the merits of Your beloved Son's wounds, save us."

Message from Jesus Christ - Friday, August 14, 1987

My daughter,
She is My Mother from whom I was born.
He who honours Her, honours Me.
He who denies Her, denies Me.
And he who asks something from Her, obtains because She is My Mother.


THE ECSTASIES, A TURNING POINT
FROM SEPTEMBER 7, 1987 TO NOVEMBER 26, 1987

Message from Jesus Christ - Monday, September 7, 1987

Mary*, is it not you that I have chosen,
the quiet girl with a heart full of love and sympathy?
I have noticed that you cannot endure anything for Me.
I shall give you a chance to choose.
Know that if you lose Me, you will lose the prayers of all those around you, and know that bearing the Cross is unavoidable.
* Myrna's real name is Mary.

Message from Jesus Christ - Thursday, November 26, 1987 - Eve of the fifth anniversary of the phenomenon.

My daughter,
I am pleased that you have chosen Me, not only in words.
I want you to join My Heart to your gentle heart so that our hearts will unite. By doing so, you will save suffering souls.
Do not hate anyone, so that your heart not be blinded by your love of Me.
Love everyone as you have loved Me, especially those who have hated you and have spoken evil of you,
because in so doing you will obtain glory.
Continue in your life as wife, mother and sister.
Do not worry about the difficulties and the pains that will afflict you.
I want you to be stronger than them -- because I am with you -- otherwise you will lose My heart.
Go and preach to the whole world and tell them without fear to work for unity.
Man is not condemned for the fruit of his hands, but for the fruit of his heart.
My peace in your heart will be a blessing for you and for all those who have cooperated with you.


THE ECSTASIES, THIRD PERIOD
FROM AUGUST 14, 1988 TO OCTOBER 10, 1988

Message from Jesus Christ (Los Angeles, USA) - Sunday, August 14, 1988

My children,
My peace I gave you, but what have you given Me?
You are My Church and your heart belongs to Me, unless this heart has a god other than Me.
I told you: The Church is the kingdom of Heaven on earth.
He who has divided it has sinned.
And he who has rejoiced from its division has also sinned.
It is easier for Me (to accept) that an infidel believe in My name
than that those who pretend to have faith and love swear by My name.
It is in God alone that you must place your pride.
Pray for the sinners who forgive in My name, and for those who deny My Mother.
My children, I have given you all of My time, give Me a part of your time.

Message from Jesus Christ (Damascus, Syria) - Wednesday, September 7, 1988

My daughter,
I told you to overcome all your difficulties and know that you have endured only a few.
Tell My children that it is from them that I demand unity, and I do not want it from those who act as if they were working for unity.
Go and preach.
And wherever you go, I am with you.

Message from Jesus Christ (Màad, Lebanon) - Monday, October 10, 1988

My daughter Mary,
Why are you afraid even though I am with you?
You must speak loudly to tell the word of truth about He who created you, so that My strength may be manifested in you.
And I will give you from My wounds so that you will forget the hardships that people inflict upon you.
Do not choose your path, because I have laid it out before you.


THE ECSTASIES, FOURTH PERIOD
FROM NOVEMBER 26, 1988 TO NOVEMBER 26, 1990

Message from Jesus Christ - Saturday, November 26, 1988 - Eve of the 6th anniversary of the phenomenon.

My children,
Is everything you do out of love for Me?
Do not say: What shall I do, because this is My work.
You must fast and pray, because through prayer you face My truth and you confront all enemies.
Pray for those who have forgotten the promise they made Me because they will say:
Why did I not feel your presence, O Lord, even though You were with me?
All I want is for you all to gather in Me as I am in each of you.
As for you, My daughter, I will leave you.
Do not fear if you do not hear My voice for a long time, but instead, be strong and let your tongue be a sword that speaks in My name.
And know that I am with you and with you all.

Message from the Holy Virgin (Los Angeles, USA) - Friday, August 18, 1989

Do not fear, My daughter.
All this is happening to glorify the name of God.
Rejoice, rather, because God has allowed you to come to Me so that I can tell you:
Do not worry about what people say about you, but remain always in peace, because the creatures turn towards Me through you.
Tell everyone to pray more because they need prayer to please the Father.
May the blessings of God be upon you and upon all those who have cooperated with you out of love for Him.

Message from the Holy Virgin - Sunday, November 26, 1989 - Eve of the 7th anniversary of the phenomenon

My children,
Jesus told Peter, You are the rock, and on it, I shall build My church.
As for Me, I tell you now: You are the heart in which Jesus will build his UNICITY.
I want you to devote your prayers to peace, from now until the commemoration of the Resurrection.

Message from Jesus Christ - Saturday, April 14, 1990 (Holy Saturday)

My children,
You, yourselves, will teach the generations THE WORD of unity, love and faith.
I am with you.
But you, My daughter, will not hear My voice until the Feast (of Easter) has been unified.

Message from the Holy Virgin (Braaschaatt, Belgium) - Wednesday, August 15, 1990

My children,
Pray for peace, and especially in the East, because you are all brothers in Christ.

Message from the Holy Virgin - Monday, November 26, 1990 - Eve of the 8th anniversary of the phenomenon

Do not fear, My daughter, if I tell you that you are seeing Me
for the last time until the feast (of Easter) is unified.
Therefore, tell My children:
Do they want or not to see and remember the wounds of My Son in you?
If it does not pain them to see that you are suffering doubly, I Myself, am a Mother, and it pains Me to see My Son suffering repeatedly.
Remain in peace, remain in peace, My daughter.
Come, so that He may give you peace, so that you may spread it among the people.
As for the oil, it will continue to manifest itself on your hands to glorify My Son Jesus, whenever He wishes and wherever you go.
We are with you and with everyone who wishes the Feast (of Easter) to be One.
 

Message given to Myrna by Jesus Christ at Soufanieh on Holy Saturday, April 14th , 2001, at 2:50 PM.
 
“My children …
I have given you a sign for My glorification. Stay on your path, and I am with you.
Otherwise, I will close the gates of heaven in your faces.[1]
But here is Mother suffering … praying … saying to me: ‘O Lord, You are love in its totality!
And I say: ‘Do not despair, O Gate of Heaven, because I love them and I want them to respond to this love with giving.[2]
‘My children: Strive to see yourselves as you truly are, and to see the extent of your faithfulness in achieving the unity of heart among yourselves.
Adorn yourself with patience and wisdom. Don’t be afraid if you fail.
Stay firm in hope.
Trust Me. I will not abandon those who do My will.’
As for you, My daughter, be careful, and be armed with My grace.
Be patient, wise, and humble.
Offer up these pains with joy.
I have said to you, ‘Your pains will not last long.’
Look to Me. You shall find peace and rest.
It is I who strengthen you,
I who desert[3] you,
and I who pick you up
to lead you to the joy of heaven.
Persevere in prayer, and let your fasting be accompanied by meditation and solitude, and you will hear My voice in your heart.[4]
Trust Me. I will not abandon you, your family, or anyone who participated [5] with you
in My name [6] and for My sake.”

Message given to Myrna by Jesus Christ at Soufanieh on November 26th , 2001.

How beautiful is the family whose emblem is unity, love and faith.
Its path is My path and My Mother is its support.
My children,
I am bestowing Myself upon you.
The act of adoration, meditation, thanksgiving and spiritual
guidance rejoice Me.
But the whole is incomplete without your unity at the altar.
I am giving you My Body and My Blood as a proof of My fidelity
and love.
Receive from Me this sacrament with trust and faith,
because this sacrament comforts you,
provides you with strength and wisdom and increases you in grace.
Difficult days are coming.
Turmoil within the Church.
He, who does not enjoy true peace, will be in danger due to
division.
Do not surrender to failure,
do not worry about the judgment of others on you,
do not defend yourselves
and seek only what I have prepared for you.
I am the One who take care of you because you are the work of
My hands.
Prove your love to Me,
because through love I walk at your side and through the
sacraments I unite Myself to you.
And do not forget that I am the reason of your existence on earth
and I am the reason of your happiness in Heaven.

Message of Our Lord Jesus Christ - Holy Thursday, April 8th 2004.  [7]

This is the Source from which every soul may quench.
The Wound of My Heart is the Source of Love.
As for the Wounds, they are due to a crime I did not commit.

 

Message of Our Lord Jesus Christ - Holy Saturday, April 10th 2004.

This is my last commandment to you:
Each one of you, return back home,
however, hold the East in your hearts.
From here a light emerged anew.
You are its radiance in a world seduced by materialism, sensuality and fame,
so much as to have almost lost its values.
As for you, hold on to your Eastern identity.
Do not allow your will, your freedom and your faith in this Orient to be taken away from you.

[3]Literally, “throw you” (“yulqiiki”)
[4]Literally, “inside you”

                    [7]This year, the Feast of Easter was unified.  This is why we were expecting something to happen at Soufanieh.  Myrna was in pain since early in the morning.  At 11:45, she entered in her bedroom.  Were also present: fathers Paul Fadel, Adel Théodore Khoury and Elias Zahlaoui, as well as a French priest, father Joseph Besnier and a Canadian priest, father Louis-René Gagnon M.S.C., in addition to numerous doctors and specialists from Germany (Riad Hanna), France (Philippe Loron), the United States of America (Antoine Mansour), from Norway (Knut Kvernebo, Cato Mork, Oivind Ekeberg) and from Sweden (Goran Solerud, Erik Haggblad).  Media (TV) representatives were also onsite.  They were: the Swedish TV3 station and the Lebanese LBC.  A Danish theologian was also present, Dr Niels Christian Hvidt.  Myrna's suffering was increasing as time went on.  At 13:25, Myrna, half-conscious, half-unconscious, says:  The Wound of My Heart suffices.  A 13:55  Traces of blood on her top left-handflank stained her blouse.   The doctors measured the wound: 34mm  (3.4 cm).  Myrna did not see anything, however, she heard Jesus' voice.
