& TAKE THE
MOTHER GOD PLEDGE
Would you like to be a Minister in the Order of "Mary's Witnesses?"
We are sending out folks two by two with the Gospel of Mary. This is to proclaim that She is the Mother of mankind, as well as the Mother of Our Lord. She can be, if the soul is willing, the personal Mother of each and every mortal; which means that she will protect and comfort, guide and nurture in all areas of life.
SENDING OUT PEOPLE
Right now we are looking for people to become missionaries in the style of other "Witnesses" who go to houses two by two. The first requirement of this is you must study. The articles pertaining to God on this site: " Woman Thou Art God" are the beginning. Those who distinguish themselves in their studies will get personal tutoring and instructions from Rasa Von Werder when necessary.
THE RIGHT KIND OF PEOPLE
The people we need must be serious in their commitment to God, mature in their spirituality, and of good moral character. They must have zeal, obedience to God and The Gospel of Jesus and Mary, and charity toward all people.
WHAT IS OUR RELIGION?
For starters, we can talk about Blessed Mary, Our Queen. She is extremely important, and that must be known. Jesus is known everywhere, to the ends of the Earth. But the Gospel of Mary is not known as well. There are infinite reasons to love Mary, our Mother, and infinite Blessings that come from loving Her.
To accept Her with submission, devotion and Love, changes a soul and fills it with new Graces. Jesus never intended to do everything alone. He chose many to do His bidding. There have been numerous great Saints, during the time of Jesus and thereafter. But Mary, Our Queen, is above all the Saints in supereminence, in sanctity, in anointing and power. Devotion to her is a sure sign of predestination for Heaven and the greatest tool, with Jesus, of gaining the Highest Glory. She must be known!
HOW TO APPLY
To sign up as a possible minister, read the articles on this site that pertain to spirituality. Study them, meditate on them. Read other materials that pertain to Our Holy Mother, such as "The Mystical City of God," by Ven. Mary of Agreda, the writings of Anne Catherine Emmerich, and the writings of St. Louis DeMontfort. Study any other writings that extoll the Virgin Mary as well as anything on Mystical Theology, Catholic Theology and Christian Theology that does not disdain Mary. Many such materials are on the internet. You will have to understand that we at this College esteem Her even higher than does the Catholic Church. When you have done a thorough study, contact us with your thoughts and feelings about why you'd like to be a minister with us. You may present your dissertation in two ways: Either audio tape (address is on each page) or e-mail. The e-mail has to be typed on a 36 font for easy reading for someone with eyestrain. This dissertation has to be lengthy. We will not take your short letters seriously. You will have to prove to us that you mean business, and then we will go from there.
HOW LONG A STUDY?
There has to be thorough study of at least one year before you can qualify as minister. You will be tested. At the end of that time, when you graduate, you will receive a diploma. Your studies will continue, and with each year of study you will get a higher ranking in the Church, culminating in Doctor of the Church, which is the highest ranking.
WHEN DO YOU START WORK?
After the first year, you will be assigned a partner in your area, if such a person is available. If no person is available in your area, you may have to work alone, with a ministry conducted in public places. You will be a bona fide minister who is able to administer sacraments and teach others to build Churches in their homes.
YOU TAKE THE FIRST STEP
You must take the first step of study. We have taken our steps, and you must take yours. Contact us when you are ready to begin.

WHAT IS THE GOSPEL OF MARY?
The Gospel of Mary is not a new and strange Gospel, nor does it contradict the "old" Gospel of Jesus. It is the same thing, only a different nuance of it, another perspective WHICH JESUS NOT ONLY APPROVES BUT WITH ALL HIS HEART, DESIRES THAT YOU FOLLOW IT. Jesus had a plan for Mary, part of which has been carried out, but some of which has not been totally fulfilled.
What has been carried out is the love of Mary as taught by the Roman and Eastern Catholic Churches. What has not been fulfilled is Universal love and veneration/worship of Her, as She can be and will be the Universal Mother of all when they have accepted Her. Although we approve of the fact that we have freedom of religion and we respect and tolerate all religions, we yearn to see billions of people, who are so inclined, to accept Mary as their Mother and receive all the benefits from this Sorrowful, Joyful, Luminous and Glorious Mother! There are remarkable Gifts waiting for all those who take this Blessed Mother into their bosom. Take Her into YOUR heart and She will take YOU into Hers!
WHAT DID JESUS SAY?
It was at the foot of the Cross, before Our Lord died, that He officially designated Mary as Mother of all mankind, Mother of all His disciples. Before He died, He left the Testament of His Holy Divine Will, and He left That which was most precious to Him, to us. That most valuable of all possessions or Gifts was His Holy Mother Mary. He said to the Beloved disciple, John,
"Behold, THERE IS YOUR MOTHER!"
And to Mary He said,
"Behold, THERE IS YOUR SON."
given Mary to us, and us to Mary. He is about to
die, and no longer needs Her protection and comfort. But we are living. HE GIVES US WHAT WE NEED.
Does She need us? Only because She wants to Love us. In the days of Mary's physical body, She did need someone special to tend to Her physical needs so that she was not completely alone in a cold world. That person would purchase the things She needed and do Her errands and presumably help Her in a physical way with things She could not do. The world was not then as it is now. It was difficult for a woman to be alone. It is not easy today; then it was much more difficult. But it goes beyond that into000 spiritual realities and relationships. The ministry of Jesus continues. He is alive in Her. He was always alive in Her. God chose Her and Her alone to bring Him into the world, with no benefit of man, we might add. Her flesh is His flesh. Her Spirit is His spirit. Their Hearts are One. Jesus is about to depart. The disciples are heavy hearted. But one thing they know: His Mother is still here! THEY TAKE GREAT COMFORT IN THAT! In many accounts, they look upon Her as their spiritual leader!
WHO IS MARY TO US?
This we promise you if you devote your prayers to Mary: Miracles of grace. We have seen it. To those who believe in "Jesus only" we have a surprize. Do what Jesus wants! Do not think, for one moment, that you are being unfaithful to Jesus by loving Mary! Did He not love Her? Did He not consider Her the most important person in the world to Him? This woman is born the Holiest of Holies. In Her Womb is the Tabernacle in which Jesus - God and Man - is conceived. God Almighty is Dad, and Mary Most Holy is Mom! No one else can claim this parentage!
CONCEIVED WITHOUT SIN
Why is Mary above the Saints? Why is She Supereminent and to Catholics, deserving of "Dulia?" In the Catholic mind, Mary was conceived without original sin, known as the "Immaculate Conception." She is conceived without sin because Her body is The Tabernacle of Jesus Christ! And also, She nurtures, guides, and comforts Our Divine Lord. Catholics believe She is the greatest of mortals and He is Divine. We believe they are both Divine; He God and Man, She God and Woman.
The idea of original sin is that we are born with a tendency toward sin. Mary had no tendency toward sin - not even the slightest inclination to commit one venial (or small) sin. The forces of Hell were emptied to tempt Her to THINK something uncharitable, but it was impossible. (See Mystical City of God.) Mary IS NOT LIKE OTHER PEOPLE. She was not like other people when living on Earth, and not like other Saints in Heaven. She is not like your Aunt Gladys in Heaven, or even any of the SuperSaints. No one else, that we know of, was conceived without original sin; nor was anyone else chosen to partner The Blessed Lord in such an intimate way.
Let no person tell you that Mary had other sons besides Jesus. It was a miracle of God that Jesus was born without going through the birth canal of Mary. He dematerialized from Her womb into Her arms, without violating Her Virginity. We resist any statement to the contrary. The men called "sons" in the bible were cousins.
MARTIN LUTHER NOT TO BE TRUSTED
The reason that Protestants keep preaching that Mary had other sons is because they do not love, venerate or worship Her. For some reason, Martin Luther really did a number against Mary in his fight against the Catholic Church. Martin Luther, although he had some good points, is not a man to follow in all areas. He was evil in many ways. He changed the words of The Bible in his translation to go from "by faith we are saved" to "by faith ALONE we are saved." When the peasants, (poor people) revolted against the Catholic Church - partly due to his activism - Martin Luther applauded the authorities who slew the peasants.
"Whoever kills peasants (poor people) does a good thing,"
He wrote a heinous, disgustingly racist book against the Jews. Without a doubt, this sort of attitude CONTRIBUTED TO THE HOLOCAUST!
Now, are you going to trust this fallen Priest - who broke his vows and married a nun - when he puts down THE HOLY OF HOLIES, HOLY MARY? Or will you trust the GREATEST SAINTS WHO EVER LIVED who insist She is above all mortals?
ARGUMENTS AGAINST MARY
As Witnesses of Mary, you will get lots of arguments against Her, like,
"Why do I need Mary? Jesus supplies all my needs. He is All Things to All People...there isn't any reason to venerate Mary when I have Jesus."
Answer: How wrong you are! Didn't Jesus HIMSELF need Mary? Didn't He need Her maternal love? What makes you better and stronger than Jesus - who needed Mary? You say you don't need Mary - but He needed Mary. Does that make sense? Of course not! Not only that, He officially DESIGNATED Mary to be YOUR MOTHER at the foot of The Cross! If you did not NEED Mary, Jesus would not have left Her to you!
"Jesus is the giver of all Gifts, including the Holy Spirit. He sends us the Holy Spirit and all great things. What can Mary give me? How can Mary bring me closer to God?"
Answer: If you are a disciple of Jesus, then you need Mary to inspire you and strengthen you at the times of your greatest need, including your Calvary. (Take note that Calvary is different things to different people...to a five-year old child, carrying fifty pounds five miles is Calvary...it's hard to estimate who is in profound sufferings because you don't know the inner state of a person, and what they are capable, or not capable, of bearing.) Mary followed Jesus in His agony and stood there beneath The Cross. She will stand by you in all hardships, if you undertake these for the Kingdom of God, and if you have invited Her into your heart.
WHO IS JESUS TO YOU?
Jesus may be your Father, your Brother, or your Spouse, but there is one thing He cannot be: Your Mother. That has to be female, and that person is Mary Most Holy. (We understand that other religions have worthy symbols of Mother as God and have great success in worshipping God that way, and that is perfectly alright...you need the Femminine Divine...God speaks to us and comes to us in many ways...but to Christians, that Person is Mary.)
THE GRACES OF MARY
I can give my personal testimony here of the Graces given me by Mary. It was Mary who prepared me for God by Special Graces such as POVERTY, CHASTITY AND OBEDIENCE. She appeared to me in late 1981 and bestowed these Gifts on me, which were seen as whitish/grey ropes around my waist, the ends of which extended upward to Heaven. She said,
"I GIVE YOU MY GIFTS."
She also said, at that time,
"I WILL COME FOR YOU WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED WITH YOUR WORK."
Earlier than that, (late 70's) she had said to me, in answer to a question,
'YES, YOU ARE A STUMBLING BLOCK, AND ON THIS STUMBLING BLOCK I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH.'
(I am wondering right now, is the Church She is referring to "Mary's Witnesses," which I just thought of yesterday, December 18, 2004?)
I will continue speaking of the Graces of Mary in a moment. I will first explain how I thought of the present project. I was praying to God, and discussing with a friend, our Church on the Internet, the Woman Thou Art God Church. I was trying to figure out how we could bring cohesion to it, as it has so many elements. It has Jesus, Mary and Yoga, and activism for ecology and animals. How do I bring all this together into something people could join? ( My friend said we needed something people could join.) I meditated on this and prayed Thursday and Friday. On Saturday, I was in a hurry to get somewhere when two men came to my yard. They introduced themselves to me from my porch. They were well dressed and kind. I was in such a hurry, I said,
"Tell me what you want...Are you insurance men?...I don't mean to be harsh, but I'm in a big hurry and I do not have time to talk right now."
They said they were Jehovah's Witnesses. I then said,
"I know a lot about your religion and have the literature. I respect you very much, but I cannot join you. I know you are good people and I respect and tolerate all religions, but I have my own beliefs, which are different than yours. But I do thank you very much for being missionaries, and I wish you good luck in your work."
The dear men went away. How loving they were! I rushed back to my kitchen to what I was doing trying to get away fast, when it came to me that this was the answer to my prayers! The Jehovah's Witnesses religion is highly successful. Each member becomes a missionary and minister. I really respect them for that! And the next thought in my head - no doubt by Divine Counsel - was
"How about MARY'S WITNESSES?"
Which brings us to the present day. Did Mary mean THIS when She said,
"You ARE a stumbling block, and on this stumbling block, I will build my Church."
Only TIME will tell.
MARY'S GRACES, PART II
In 1978 Mary showed me Her Immaculate Heart and said,
"I WANT YOU THE WHOLE WORLD MY IMMACULATE HEART."
I saw a large brown Cross in the sky. It came down to Earth and dipped itself into a puddle of what looked like milk. Then it ascended back into the sky and dissapeared.
For many years I was unclear as to what that vision meant. (This was a vision, not a dream.) Then in February, 2002 , Jesus was gracious enough to appear to me and tell me He was anointing me with His great Healing Power, which would manifest when I would go out to preach to gatherings of people. He told me a few other things about my future. Before He dissapeared, I hurried to ask Him about the vision I had never understood. He said:
"THAT CROSS IS ME. I CAME TO EARTH TO BE CRUCIFIED. THE MILK I ENTERED INTO WAS MY HOLY MOTHER. I WAS BROUGHT INTO THE WORLD THROUGH HER, AND THEN, AT THE END OF MY WORK, I WENT BACK TO HEAVEN."
It all made sense!
Over the years, Mary has appeared to me in little ways and big ways. Once, in a foreign place, I was given a room in a hotel WITH NO WINDOWS. I was too tired to go back to the front desk and protest, but I was spooked out. To comfort myself, I put the picture of Our Lady of Lourdes behind my head on the headboard. When I awoke, after a good sleep, there was water on my forehead. I turned around and realyzed Our Lady Of Lourdes had comforted and blessed me in my sleep! She had anointed my head with water!
It is difficult for me to recall offhand all the times Mary blessed me, appeared to me, comforted me, and gave me revelations. In the last few years She has been appearing regularly in my dreams. During an especially frustrating time, when I was trying to learn computers and internet and had not the proper person to guide or teach me, I had a dream. In this I was crying from frustration. Mary was sitting on a throne in a magnificent dark dress and crown. She was the Queen! The Queen, feeling pity for me, left Her throne, and stooping by me, who was sitting low, comforted me by saying,
"I MYSELF WILL TEACH YOU."
Within a couple of months I found a perfect teacher and learned how to run a computer and do all that I had to do! And because of Her, I am typing right now on WordPad!
Understand this: Mary cares about ALL ASPECTS OF OUR LIVES. She cares about the big things and the little things, about spiritual and temporal matters. She cares about your health, your finances, your schedule, your relationships, your future, your education, your happiness, etc. She is the perfect Mother who cares about the tiniest aspects of your life.
SPECIAL MARK OF
MARY UPON THE
THE PRIVILEDGED, CHOSEN SOULS WHO LOVE MARY
I have read about how special Mary is, and love of Her is a mark upon the Saints which shows them to be EVEN MORE SPECIAL THAN OTHER SAINTS!
In my personal life, I have Mary as the touchstone to all relationships. I have noticed that those who are true friends love and respect Mary, even share things concerning Mary with me. One special man sent me Mary calendars every Christmas. Another lady I met - who I wasn't sure of - was making scapulars and religious earrings with Mary, among other things - and by that I was assured she was good. On the other hand, those who are unkind to Mary, disrespectful, and resist Mary are those I must stay away from. They aren't meant to be in relationship with me! I am by no means saying that all those who don't love Mary are evil. Many are ignorant of Her, and have been told by their Church that She is not important, and don't pay any attention to her - rosaries are evil!
Growing up in an environment like that makes one confused and darkened in regards to Mary. These are innocent souls who don't know any better. I am simply saying that in my personal, life, God uses Mary as a Touchstone to show me who is good or bad for me - a special sign.
MINISTRY DOES NOT HAVE TO BE PUBLIC
I am well aware that few people will be able to conduct a public ministry and I will be extremely lucky if even one soul contacts me about being a Witness of Mary! All that I can do is wait and hope. I do have an alternative plan. This is a PRIVATE MINISTRY OF PRAYER. In fact, my own ministry, right now, is private. Other than the Internet, I perform no public ministry (this is not by choice but I cannot find any Church that will permit me to preach.) All that I do is pray the rosary (as many as I have time for), meditate, and say ten short Masses daily. The rosary is for those who might go to Hell if no one prayed for them. (Souls that are saved from Hell appear to me in dreams...they have been relatives, former friends from long ago, and people I know today...also strangers.) The meditation is mostly for myself, but revelations occur while I meditate regarding many issues. The Masses are above all, for the Poor Souls in Purgatory. The Purgatory work is my special anointed ministry - I admit it is my favorite. Why my favorite? It is the feeling there, the mysticism of it, the grace of it. It is the intimacy with the souls, which somehow makes my life so beautiful.....Not the same as with the souls on Earth. It took me some time to start praying for them regularly, because the ministry was unpleasant. Seeing the interior of these souls is ugly, but when they are saved, of course, there is jubilation on earth and in Heaven. What is DIFFERENT is that I sense no relationship with these souls on Earth, whom I have prayed for and are now saved. They do not thank me, embrace me, or give me special gifts (such as Frank Sinatra did when his term was over...he sprinkled stardust all over my yard!...also embraced me, held me lovingly.)
The souls on Earth appear not to be aware at all that they are saved, nor that I helped them. Our Earthly relationships do not change one bit. For instance, someone who has been cold hearted to me for many years was saved. But he did not repent his coldness to me that I am aware of - nor did he contact me. Others who were saved who I have not spoken to in a long time did not call me and say anything like,
"I feel different...I feel closer to God."
There was no contact, no consciousness that I am informed of. It seems like I ALONE and God know they are saved, but they themselves do not know the difference. Perhaps this is not so mysterious. How many people actually know the inner state of their souls? How many know where they are going? Do they know consciously if they are saved or not? Very few are aware of being saved, and if they are, it is because they know they made the Sinner's Prayer of Faith. ("Lord, I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins...I accept you as my Lord and Savior. Please forgive me and take me into your Heart.") When they accept God (as Jesus for Christians) into their hearts, there might not be any conscious feeling at all. In fact, all the ministers say not to trust your feelings. If you make the profession, you are saved. It is a decision of the will; has nothing to do with feelings. And there is the difference between the ministry to Purgatory, and the ministry to Earth. There's small consolation in the Earthly one.
add that the ministry to Poor Souls is ecstatic. To see someone in dire need,
crying and suffering, and then, to touch them with Love, and see the result
is awesome! And the way they respond, with FULL AWARENESS AND GRATITUDE IS SO
REWARDING! (I know that not all people will see the results of their prayers,
but I do see the results.)
Take the "Pledge to MotherGod" and send it to us to be registered. It is your official born-again experience in the acceptance of MotherGod into your heart, and a decision to take action.
MOTHER GOD PLEDGE
______________________________, accept God into my heart as Mother this
I will take action daily and pray daily for RIGHT DECISIONS. I will trust in MotherGod along the way, and in Her Saints and Angels who will guide me. I will change my life for the better and all those around me will be changed by my ACTIONS. I pledge to MOVE in prayer and PHYSICAL ACTION towards the good as I move for God, God WILL MOVE FOR ME.
**It is important to note that this acceptance of MotherGod does not negate worship to God in any other form. It simply EXPANDS, EMPOWERS, FRUCTIFIES my love for God, and makes my love BIGGER and BETTER. I now love God more FULLY than ever before!
