Regarding Victim souls

by Gaby
(Canada)

QUESTION: I REALLY need answers… PLEASE!

My husband and I had read the little book on Akita, and I wrote to them saying we wanted to belong to the association.

We signed the form as requested, and we promised to say our daily rosary, wear the scapular, and daily say the little prayer they sent us.

I wrote them a letter asking if that prayer meant that we were agreeing to offer ourselves as victim souls, but they did not answer. I suspected that it was what it meant, and we agreed to whatever it entailed. So, we offered ourselves as victim souls because Our Lady of Akita was asking for this.

HOWEVER…. I just attended a one full week retreat, and the priest said we cannot offer ourselves as victim souls if we do not have a director of conscience.

I cannot find, anywhere around here, a good authentic priest, who is attached to the magisterium. There is not one I could trust enough to possibly ask to be my director of conscience.

The problem is that one cannot offer oneself as a victim soul without a director of conscience, according to this priest I just met, and until then, I did not know this.

a) This good priest, whom I just saw during my retreat, this July, (in another province) removed me from my offering as a victim soul. He claims it is very serious to make such an offering without a director of conscience. If a person becomes a victim soul without a director of conscience, the devil can take hold and cause a lot of problems. Therefore, he prayed on me, and as a priest, he has the power to remove this commitment, which he did.

b) I then asked about my husband, and he said he cannot do this at distance. But he told me what a person should do… The person must not say the prayer anymore. With holy water, bless himself while asking our Lord to remove him from this commitment. He must say the sign of the cross with holy water, while asking to be removed from being a victim soul.

I now realize that I should not have given that little prayer to others… I was doing it to recruit victim souls to console Our Lady.

I wish to know if the information I got is all correct. I would greatly appreciate your comments PLEASE!

Thanking you sincerely, for any possible information.

ANSWER: Dear Gaby. Offering oneself as a "victim soul" is indeed a very noble - yet very difficult - offering. To be a victim soul is to offer oneself to the Lord - to agree to accept all sufferings and offer these for the sake of sinners. It is to have that inner spirit of acceptance of all difficulties - and offering these, without complaining, to the Lord.

What you have done - that is, committing yourselves as victim souls - is again a very noble act. It is a personal gift, a personal commitment you make to the Lord, and to Him alone. As such, the decision to offer yourself as victim souls is entirely yours. No matter what priests or other spiritual directors say, if you want to offer yourself to the Lord in this manner, then you have a free choice to do so.

The Lord, in His goodness, will help you and guide you and will tell you how He would like you to serve Him best. If this path - of becoming "victim souls" - is not what He wants for you, He will tell you, deep in your heart. Resort to much prayer and discernment - it is through prayer that you will be able to know God's will for your life.

Again, do not be afraid of the "consequences" of the commitment you have made. Do not seek to undo the "commitment" you have made, as if it is a "curse" that needs to be undone. If from the bottom of your hearts this is the offering you would like to give to the Lord, then this offering is for you - and you alone- to make.

To be a "victim soul" is to live a life of complete offering and suffering for the Lord. If this is a life that you will completely accept and you will embrace, then by all means proceed with your commitment. The Lord sees your heart, and accepts your offering - big or small. What is most important is your heart - your willingness to serve Him and to suffer for Him.

Pray much, especially to Our Lady, for guidance and discernment.

victim soul? NEW
by: lastella24@aol.com

At 56 my granmother had just passed...95 yrs old, her sisyer my great aunt was still living...we spoke many times she sorrowfully spoke several times that her right knee was in extreme pain. I prayed everyday she would get some relief but no avail feeling poorly for her at 93 I asked that it would be put in the hands of Blessed Mother...one night at prayer i came across a beautiful story about Sister Josepha Mendenez the page said you must be very special that the Holy Spirit guided you here i felt so blessed...i read about this wonderful nun and i prayed for my aunt with her knee affliction...I without thought asked for her pain and suffering so she would be releived....finished prayers 5 days later...i awoke during the night with horrible pain in my knee..i went to the hospital they took mri and referred me to a orthopedic surgeon due to the fact that all the cartlidge and tendons were so twisted they said they never saw anything like it..because i never had anything wrong with my knee ever..it was swellentall red i could hardly walk Honestly i was in so much pain i never even remembered that i asked for this the doctor i went to some days later said i have never seen such a horrible mri of a knee like this...so i went to another surgeon he said no surgery yet. Shots of sinvisc will help...in the meantime my grandmothers will was probated and her sister whom i prayed for was in shock because my granmother made her the executer of her will...and she was so angry..i has asked several times how her knee was she just replied each time i donot understand the pain is gone i was tested whatever was wrong is gone..my dr. is perplexed..at that moment I realized what occurred..as it went on she became extremely unkind to me yelling and screaming her head off about the will...i am too old how could she have done this to me? Then I revealed that i prayed to sr. Jozepha and what happened to me..her judgment upon me was terribly cruel...she gave my number out to lawyers hung up on me and became outrageously cruel...so now i am on my 3rd round of shots in my knee and it is deformed...not only my knee but the pantella muscle right below the knee is always swelled...i do need to have a knee replacement in the near future. I no longer talk to my aunt she is now 96 but it has been her choice...i am sorry for her...sometimes i feel a tiny bit of regret for what i have done..but the I look at Jesus's Sacret Heart...i ask please root this feeling i have out of me...i dont care about the condition of my knee i think i felt the regret of her total disregard of the situation...and i keep asking for forgiveness...for feeling the regret..After making novena to Jesus and 31 day Servite Rosary to Blessed Mother for all my LIFE's sins...any regret i felt is gone I am actually content that my knee is the way it is...i do not understand. Then to add to the story while i prayed the 7 sorrows rosary i asked for someone i know who had pancreatic cancer.be releived of her illness and she was...GOD is so good..i wish and pray so earnestly for everyone to turn to Him in every need...But first ask His Mother Mary...Jesus never refuses His Mother anything...i try my best to tell all whom i know...but i found that thete are so many Godless people they just don't care...i worry about their souls....Please i have several most intetesting situations and witnesses.to verify the miraculous events i have experienced...J.M.J. diane harun i pray i get some feed back....it would delight my soul tyvm+

Being a Victim Soul NEW
by: Anonymous

being a victim soul and accepting all the sufferings coming your way, and believe me they come sometimes one after another when you least expect it, is not easy but offering it in connection with Jesus' suffering , He Who is pure and innocent and does not deserve to suffer, He Who is our Creator, Father and King, makes you feel close to Our Lord and makes you see and understand your own sinfulness and thus accept the sufferings as a cleansing.
I rather suffer here than in purgatory. I prefer to go a little faster to the Father, the Son, the Holy Sprit than to be separated from the Communion of Saints in Heaven.

To the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit

O Master, Creator of the Universe
I praise, adore and worship Thee
with You my soul wants to converse
though the words are lacking me.

I want to hear that inner Voice
so powerful and so inviting
away from world's distracting noise
is there anything more exciting ?

Thank You, my Father and my Lord,
for Your healing and Salvation
through You my soul is restored
from hunger and severe dehydration.

O Holy Spirit, let me never forget
that I live for, through and in You
that this world is but an outlet
to the eternal life, to pursue !
