Your Holiness, Pope Francis,

My name is Ned Dougherty, and I am forwarding to you three urgent messages that I have received.

I am a published author and have been a featured speaker since 2001 at many Catholic events and institutions, including the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, Washington, DC; and the Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette, Attleboro, MA. I have also been a guest on numerous Catholic radio and TV venues, including Archbishop Hannan’s Focus Television, New York Telecare, and on the Eternal Word Television Network.

In the past 30 years, I have had three near-death experiences: the first two experiences, reported in my book, FAST LANE TO HEAVEN, occurred on July 2, 1984 and November 30, 1984. The third experience happened recently on April 4, 2014 at 3:30am. This latest experience of April 4, 2014 is a direct result of my mission involving messages from Our Blessed Mother, as Our Lady of Light; messages which come to me in the form of interior locutions.

In addition to Our Lady’s most recent messages, I am including the Message from Our Lady of LaSalette which I received on November 1, 2005 at the LaSalette Shrine in the French Alps. Our Lady told me that this message is the continuation of the messages received by two children at LaSalette on September 19, 1846. Coincidentally, I was born on September 19, 1946.

Our Lady has directed me to communicate with you regarding the messages that I recently received on March 2, 2014, and April 2, 2014. Our Lady considers that these messages are critical for the future well-being of all mankind. She directed me to send them to you, Holy Father, as soon as possible.

In addition, Our Lady of Light spoke to me interiorly on April 4, 2014 at 7:50am: “Diplomacy is the art of the avoidance of truth. In these times, the people of the world need to hear the truth!”

I pray that Our Lady of Light will be your guide as you discern these messages.

Yours very respectfully,

Ned Dougherty

Our Lady of Light


My dear son,


I come to you today with a message of great importance for the people of the world. Your worldly leaders are planning on engaging you, my children, in another bloody world war to solidify their enslavement of all of God’s children on the face of the Earth.


I call upon all of you to resist the attempts of the world leaders to engage in this bloody war. I call upon all of you to refuse to bear arms against your brothers and sisters around the world, who are being so manipulated by these dark leaders, who are in league with the evil one, who is hell bent to bring about this damning conflagration upon God’s children.


Once again, I must call upon the children of God to save the world from its own destruction. I call upon children of all ages to resist this demonic plan of the evil one. Children of all ages must rise up in prayer to prevent an Armageddon of destruction and war to consume all of you.


You must recognize now, that through the history of the world, it is the tyrants at the head of the various powerful governments, who are the instigators and movers of the means of destruction that have caused the deaths of millions of people throughout the modern times, as well as in the ancient times.


It was never the plan of the Father in Heaven that there should be war among His children. These wars have been, and continue to be, promulgated by the leaders of the world, who are causing such death and destruction.


I have appeared to many of you through the ages to warn of the death and destruction proffered by your evilly-inspired leaders, and now I am appearing to you once again. This time the warnings from Your Heavenly Mother are more grave than ever before, because of the technology of the modern world which can now destroy the entire human race in the flash of an instant. This is the ultimate plan of the evil one to destroy all of you. But you are wiser now to your leaders and their plans; more than ever before.


As I had warned before to the children of Fatima, the Consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart is necessary in these times to assure that the evil one will be broken and to usher in an Era of Peace without the inevitable conflagration that will be waged, if the evil one and his minions get their war.


I call upon all of you now in these End Times to petition the Holy Father, who has been rightfully chosen by the Father in Heaven, to fully implement the Consecration of Russia and the people of Russia to my Immaculate Heart in these times. Allow no confusion to exist of what my intentions are for Russia and its people, who I love dearly.


Recognize that it is not only the warring leaders of the people of Russia, who are at fault in these times. All of the leaders of the world are being lured, mostly knowingly, yet some unwittingly, into implementing a chain of events eventually leading to another world war – a third war conflagration that will surpass all other world wars.


You, my people, do not want these wars which will do nothing but create more destruction and death throughout the world. I know it is difficult for many of you to accept that there are world leaders and global elitists with their self-obsessed interests, who are implementing this plan of world war, because it works in their best interests to evermore increase their power and control over the people of the world.


Now that you know this, you must petition the Pontiff in Rome to make a stand on behalf of the people of the world, who are faithful to My Son Jesus, the Redeemer of the world. The Pontiff in Rome must confirm and reaffirm the Consecration of the people of Russia, as well as the people of the world, to my Immaculate Heart, so there is no doubt that the Church of the Son of God stands firmly against the world leaders, who are promulgating these world wars.


The people of the world must unite in peaceful prayer to turn the tide of evil that is driving you all into an eternal conflagration. The people of the world have the power through their prayers to stop all wars and to usher in an Era of Peace – free at last of the bondage and slavery created by the evil one and his minions.


I ask you in these times to remember my words in prayer to St. Dominic eight centuries ago, when the most powerful prayer of the Rosary was promulgated to all of you, the children of God. Throughout these many centuries, those of you who turned to the powerful prayers of the Rosary were instrumental in preventing wars and ending other wars that the evil one very craftily implemented. Now, the evil one is planning the greatest conflagration to ever engulf humanity, and you must be aware of his plans.


Be ever vigilant now of the End Times events that are taking place, as I had always warned and prophesied to you. Now you hear and see the rumours of war and the threats of war by your leaders, many of whom are the minions of satan.


The Pontiff in Rome must lead all of you through the power of the Rosary, which is more powerful than any of their weapons of destruction.


Therefore, I call upon you to hear my petition to you to the Pontiff in Rome. I call upon you to pray for the Conversion of Russia and its people as well as the conversion of the whole world. If my prayers and petitions are not answered, death and destruction will follow, just as I had warned in the past.


Yet, I know, my children, that this time you will not fail your Heavenly Mother, my Son the Redeemer of the World, and the Father in Heaven.


We will not desert you in your need. We ask that you consecrate yourselves to saving the world from its own destruction. You must be successful in your prayers in these times. Then, the world will experience a global transformation for the benefit and good of all souls living here on Earth. 


The New Heaven and New Earth is my promise to you of the future.


So be it! According to the Father in Heaven!

Message from Our Lady of Light

My dear son,

Through you, my son, I must continue my message of importance to the people of the world for the world is not listening to your Heavenly Mother.  Your world leaders are planning another worldwide conflagration of death and destruction; the likes of which has never been experienced before by mankind. 

You must inform the children of the world that this death and destruction is the plan of the evil world leaders, who are going about their demonically influenced ways to subjugate all of you even further than they have already done, and once again, they are planning on unleashing the instruments of death and destruction from their past wars, as well as dangerous new and more technologically advanced weapons, including weapons that have not yet been made known to you.

You must understand that you need to WAKE UP to their plan to destroy mankind.

Which leaders am I referring to?  You are being manipulated by these world leaders and their secret occult organizations to believe that the wars that they are threatening are over concerns for the rights of the individual in various societies other than your own, of course, and that the world leaders are so concerned about improving the living conditions of the people in the countries that they wish to invade.

Nothing could be further from the truth, and these leaders are incapable of believing in truths, because they are minions of the evil one and under his direct control and manipulation. Therefore, these world leaders pretend to act from  a position of righteousness, when, all along, they are under a suppression of thought that permits them to rationalize the most demonic of plans that the evil one is attempting to enforce upon all of you, my children.

What is it that you need to do?

You must WAKE UP to the realization that your world leaders do not have the interests of the people in mind, when they are planning a war that will kill so many of you. But to these world leaders, your survival is not even a consideration. You are thought of by them as collateral damage.

Even though as the people of the world, you individually have had no participation in causing or creating these events, the people of the world who are being programmed to be your enemy, will react by treating you individually as the enemy. This is because the world leaders are intentionally fostering anger and hate between the people of the world, so that the people of the world do not recognize who the enemy really is. They are demonically programming you with the fog of war that prevents you from discerning who the true enemy really is – satan.

 But many of you have become enlightened now and recognize that the future of the world is jeopardized by the most senior leaders of the various governments, who are acting in league with satan. Therefore, you must withdraw your support from your government, if your government is planning, promoting, or promulgating war.

The truth is that the evilly inspired leaders of the world from various countries with supposedly different beliefs are really all acting in common with the intent to subjugate humanity, sometimes with and sometimes without their complicit knowledge and conscious understanding that it is the evil one who is directing their actions.

It is time now for all of you to make a stand against your governments that are leading you to war.

Once again, I must petition you to respond to my call by pointing out that the conditions necessary for the Era of Peace have not yet been made by my Son’s Church, nor have they been met by the people of the world.

This is the final warning in this regard: All steps must be taken by My Son’s Church to intercede with these worldly leaders and prevent these world wars from happening. This will be a difficult task because the Church of My Son has been deceived by these world leaders, who have been devious in their dealings with my Son’s Church regarding their intentions to plan, provoke and execute war.

It is time now for the Church of My Son to rise up in leadership and represent the people of the world against this global tyranny of the world’s demonically influenced leaders.

It is time now for the Church of My Son to directly inform the people of the world that they are to stand down and to not participate in any aggression and violence that is the work of the evil one and his minions.

It is time now for the Church of My Son to educate the people of the world to the truth of the globalist world leaders, who are acting in concert with the evil one to bring about a third world war.

As your Heavenly Mother, I am inspiring the Pontiff in Rome to provide the leadership for the people of the world; a leadership that comes from the Heavenly Father, who never intended His children to bear arms against each other. In these times, only the Pontiff in Rome has been chosen by the Heavenly Father to properly lead the people of the world in ending the aggression of the evil one and bringing about an Era of Peace for all of mankind.

Therefore, I am asking for a Worldwide Vigil of Prayer and Fasting from the people of the world to petition the Pontiff in Rome to take the necessary leadership and the necessary steps to prevent a worldwide conflagration and to, therefore, usher in the Era of Peace.

The future of the world should not be determined by the bullets and bombs of its demonically-inspired leaders. The future of the world should be determined by the love and the prayers of the good people of the world, who must resist any plan of these world leaders that promulgates hatred between the brothers and sisters of the world.

WAKE UP all people of the world to the hatred of the evil one, who is inspiring these world leaders. To follow in their footsteps in their plans to lead you to war makes you a complicit participant of the evil one’s work.

Do not allow yourselves to be so manipulated and controlled by these demonically inspired world leaders.

Pray for the Pontiff in Rome that he will be inspired to assume a position of world leadership inspired by the Heavenly Father; His Son, the Redeemer of the world; and the Holy Spirit to bring about the Era of Peace and an end to all bloodshed!

Thanks be to God!

Sanctuarie de Notre Dame de La Salette, Suite 2042, La Sallete, France @ 11:55pm

Our Lady of La Salette

My dear son,

On this most important feast day in the Church of My Son, Jesus Christ, I want to convey to you a message of great importance and urgency to the world.

You are here at the mountain of La Salette, because I wanted to bring you here to convey this message. It is upon this mountain that I first conveyed messages to the children of La Salette (September 19, 1846), messages that were ignored by my priests and by my people. It is important that the people do not allow these messages to go unheard in these perilous times for humanity.

As I have told you before, there is a timeliness and a timelessness to my messages to save the world from its own destruction. Since I first began to appeal to my children throughout the world, my messages have fallen on deaf ears.

Here at La Salette, I had warned of many dangers to my priests and to the Church. My warnings and messages were not heard and the scandals of the priesthood became too great for even my Son to bear. If only my warnings had been heeded here at La Salette, the Church of my Son would have reacted to the challenge many years ago. The Church did not respond and the scandals grew until my Son’s Church was ripped apart by division and fear, for the truth was not told and the problem was not handled properly.

Now it is important that you respond in prayer to my priests, who are maintaining their vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, for their role in the Church in these perilous times is of the utmost importance. Pray for my priests, for they are challenged at every turn by my adversary. Pray that they have solicitude and forbearance, and the strength to retain their vows and move forward in these times to strengthen and protect my Son's Church from the darkness of the evil one, who is attempting to crush the Church that was founded upon the rock of St. Peter, the Apostle.

The evil one will no longer have his way with the Church of my Son. You must rise against the darkness in prayer, penance, contrition, and reception of my Son's sacraments. The people must return to my Son's Church to save the world from the chastisements that are now befalling you.

You are now in the times that I have warned you about for many years. I appeared many times here in France to warn of perilous times in the future. Again, my warnings were unheard. If only humanity listened to my warnings, you would not find the world in the terrible state in which it exists today.

But you can change the course of events through your powerful prayers. The future chastisements may still be postponed, alleviated, or cancelled, if the world returns to my Son.

If the world refuses to believe my messages, only darkness, despair, and destruction will continue in the world. Why it is that mankind is so blinded to my efforts?

You have become a world that is greatly influenced by the evil one. Your children from the earliest age are being bombarded with messages of evil, of pornography and filth, of materialism and greed, of death and destruction. They are becoming so affected by the darkness that their childhood no longer exists, and they don’t even learn or know of my Son's love for them. They are learning to be mature, before they are learning to be young, but it is a maturity that is the plan of the evil one, who is leading the world to perdition.

Your movies, television, books, magazines and other ways of communicating have become obsessed with the temptations of the evil one, which is part of his plan to destroy mankind. The truth of this problem in your world is self-evident but you have become blinded to the truth.

Your lives are being consumed by materialism and greed and you are not living day to day with a prayerful understanding of your own lives and the lives of your family members and your children.

Much attention is paid to how you dress, where you live, and what you own. Little attention is being directed to understand who you are; why you are here on Earth; and how you were created.

The fundamental questions that should be important to you are not important to the masters of communication, who control the way you are led to think. You are not thinking for yourselves, and you are being misled by your leaders and those who control your economies.

You must revolt and not accept this system that is telling you how to feel, how to spend your money, and how to live. You must return to the principles of faith and the principles that have been provided to you by your God and Creator, as well as through the intercession of my Son, who died on the cross for you, so that you could understand that God loves you and wants you to be happy in this life, as well as in the next life that follows this life on Earth.

You need to pay more attention to your nature that is infused with the Divine Light of the Creator. The evil one wants to succeed by denying you of the remembrance of who you are and why you are here upon this earth.

But, alas, you do know better deep inside of you that you are created by God with a purpose in life and that it is your mission to discover your purpose, so that you may live a life in concert with the plans for you as designed by God, the Father.

In these times, I am coming to give messages to many of my sons and daughters, who are open to hearing these important messages, for you are now in the times that require you to make bold decisions to change the course of events for the better. The world cannot continue to go on in this manner unless you make changes.

Throughout the world, there is terrorism and war, sickness and disease, death and destruction. These events are caused by the bad behavior of mankind and are not of God the Father, nor of my Son, the Redeemer of the world. The recent events that are only the beginning of terrible events to come should send a clarion call to all of you that the world is not the same as you once knew it and that your leaders seem to be powerless to make a better world for you. You must know now that you can no longer continue to rely on the leaders who have disappointed you time and time again.

Have I ever disappointed you? Has my Son ever disappointed you? You must look to the life of my Son and to the timeliness and timelessness of my messages, if you want to save the world from its own destruction.

. . . Message resumed, November 2, 2005 at 7:20am

My son,

We began this message on a great feast day in the Church of My Son, the feast of All Saints and we continue this message on All Souls Day, for it is on these days that I rescue many souls and bring them into Heaven.

Pray for the souls of those who have departed before you from their earthly life. The prayers of the people are most powerful in saving many souls. Pray for your family members and loved ones but also pray for those who have no one to pray for them.

Pray to support the prayers of your brothers and sisters in monasteries and places of worship, who have devoted their lives to a prayerful existence only to pray for many souls who they do not even know. But, alas, all souls belong to the body of the Church of my Son, and it is His desire that all souls be saved, as well as it is the desire of your Mother.

Ask all of your brothers and sisters at all times to pray for the souls of those who have departed, but especially pray fervently for their souls on these two days; the feasts of All Saints and All Souls.

I ask you now to pray for the souls of the priests, who have fallen away from the Church of my Son. Many faithful priests with good intentions of respecting their vows have fallen away, because the work of the evil one became too much for them to bear. Know that all these priests can be forgiven of their trespasses, because your Lord and Saviour has great mercy for the priests, and He knows how unmercifully the evil one has been in trying to destroy their vocations.

Now the evil one is in great distress because he knows that his time is short. My Son, the Lord and Saviour, and Redeemer of the world is manifesting Himself more fully among you and doing the work of His Father in restoring mankind to the plan of the Creator so that you may live lives of peace and harmony, as it has been ordained by the Creator from the beginning of time.

The evil one has had his way with the world until now. But these are the times when the evil one will be purged from the face of the Earth. The Heavenly Father calls upon you to join with Him and His Son and with me Your Heavenly Mother to end the reign of the evil one on the face of the earth.

You are the powerful prayerful warriors that we now call upon to save humanity from its own destruction. Let the word go forth from this time and place here on the mountain of La Salette that all of humanity is being asked in these times to pray powerfully, to pray with fervor, and to pray with good intentions for the future of the world.

Your prayers will make a difference in these times to change the future of mankind for the better. The increase in the fervor and the power of your prayers will bind the evil one and send him to the pits of perdition. Mankind will then be freed from the bondage of darkness and despair.

The Lord and Saviour, my Son, Jesus Christ, calls upon you now to assist in leading the Church of Jesus Christ into the new millennium with fervor and love, the fervor and love that the Father and Creator has always planned for mankind.

It is now that your prayers will make a difference in the world. You are being asked to pray when alone and with your family members, to pray in your churches and homes, to form groups of prayer to meet and pray for special intentions. All of your intentions should be ultimately for the benefit of the whole world. By your praying for the smaller intentions, the greater intentions will also be realized.

I ask you my sons and daughters to join with me and my Son for this very important time in your lives. Many graces and blessings will be bestowed upon you, when you respond to my call for a life of increased prayer and participation in the sacraments of the Church of my Son.

It is important in these times that you implement the sacramentals to which you have been blessed by my Son's Church. The sacramentals are the greatest weapons to bring goodness into the world. The world will be changed for the better through the sacramentals, not by the bullets of death and destruction. Bullets and bombs are the weapons of the past that mankind used to resolve its problems, but you now realize that terrorism and war and lifting your hand against your neighbor are not the ways of the Lord.

Pray for the Pontiff in Rome to lead the Church into the future. Pray for his plan to energize the priests and the priesthood with God fearing and respectfully loving men, who will lead the Church into the new millennium.

Pray that the priests recognize the presence of my Divine Son Jesus in the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. Pray that the priests convey to the people that the Holy Eucharist is the greatest of all forms of prayer and frequent reception of the Sacred Host will lead the world to a heavenly place here on Earth.

Pray for the priests to recognize that the evil one does exist and is intent on destroying humanity. Pray for the priests who are gifted with the power of casting out demons and exorcising the devil, for the world is sorely in need of these priests to cast the evil one and the demons out of your souls and your families, and your homes.

My Son is relying mightily on these good men, who will follow in His footsteps. During His time on Earth, my Son cast out the demons from those who were afflicted by them, and He called upon his apostles and disciples to follow in His footsteps. Now more than ever, my Son's Church is in need of the most holy priests, who will have the courage to face the evil one and to cast out the demons.

My Son wants priests who will recognize that they have the gift of healing through the power of the Holy Spirit. You are now in the times that the power of healing through prayer from a distance and prayer through the laying on of hands will bring many back to the Church of my Son. Pray for the priests who are being interiorly called to a ministry of healing, because they have a very important role in the plan of the Saviour.

I am asking all brothers and sisters to reach into their own hearts, minds and souls to recognize that there is a Divine Light that has been ignited within each of you in these times that you need to address and accept. Every soul on the face of the planet has inwardly the spark of divine grace that needs to be activated in these times to survive spiritually in the greatest of spiritual wars.

Prepare yourself for these times through prayer and fasting. Find times in your busy schedules for contemplation and meditation. Recognize that my Son and your Saviour is waiting for you to answer His Divine Call for you to become a powerful and prayerful spiritual warrior.

My Son is calling upon all souls. Despite how insignificant you may think that you are, you are just as important as anyone else in this great struggle. In the eyes of my Son, not one soul is less important than another soul.

Prepare yourself for difficult times, and you will be rewarded. You will live without fear in the Divine Light of the Saviour. You will find that your lives will become more fulfilling while your material world will continue to disappoint you. Then you will begin to realize that the important things in life and the important things in your existence have nothing to do with the material things.

Materialism and greed have been the greatest tools of the evil one in turning the world away from my Son. Recognize that all that is material is transitory and will disappear over time.

But also recognize that the important things in life are spiritual, and you will grow spiritually and without fear. You will be able to live your lives with the hope and love that God has always ordained for you. You will be able to handle adversity, and you will not despair, because you will realize that all that will happen, both good and bad, ultimately leads to the same conclusion. You will return to the heavenly home of your Father and Creator. So you must know now that you are accountable to Him for the time that you have spent here on Earth.

How do you want to face the Father in Heaven when you are asked: What is it that you have done here on Earth?

If you do not respond to His call now, it will be too late in the future to answer the questions that God will put to you. You need to know now: who you are; why you are here on earth; and what is it that your Lord and Saviour wants of you.

Ask these questions of yourself in prayer and meditation and my Son will come to you and answer your questions. Have patience with yourself and with my Son, when you expect the answers to your questions to come to you very quickly. He knows better than yourself that you are in a great struggle, and he knows the struggle that you suffer personally.

Leave your problems in the arms of my Son and seek your answers through Him. If you do these things, when the time has come for you to meet your maker, you will be filled with joy and love, because you will be welcomed into the Heavenly Realms and experience the Eternal Bliss that the Father has promised you.

Now you must make the decision to answer His Call!

I come to you at this time as Notre Dame de La Salette.

Please respond to my call!

Notre Dame de La Salette
