God's Blue Book 6B

 

     

    

This explanation of Blue Book 6 came out of the March 17th, 1995 Blue Book Meeting.

 

The Sixth Book

He Calls Us to Action

R.  This book is a call to action. He gives us His love and He sends us into the world to spread this love to others. We cannot hold back. We need to pray to the Holy Spirit to enlighten us and to give us His courage to carry out the plan of the Father. Holy Spirit transform us from fear to fearlessness. He is one in us. Minute-by-minute, second-by-second, He provides for our needs. Hear His soft voice all through the day say, I love you, I love you, I love you.

    He is the bridegroom of our soul. Enter into such union with Him through His pierced side and dwell deeply in His Most Sacred Heart. As St. Paul said (Gal. 2: 20): "yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me."

    We are one body in Christ. How can I be one in Him and not love you when you are one with Him?

    He talks about the Church, the Priests, and how we are His apostles to spread His love into this world - how we must pray for our priests and one another, pray for the souls in purgatory, pray for the whole Church in union with the Masses being offered throughout the world.

  

Song:  I Love You Jesus

Age of the Two Hearts

Jesus: "My beloved priest-companion, I have allowed you to experience in extraordinary fashion the riches contained in My Heart and My Mother's Heart. I desire that you tell all My people about these riches. I desire that My people consecrate themselves to My Sacred Heart and to Mary's Immaculate Heart. My people are living in the beginnings of the age of the Two Hearts.

    "After the time of the purification is completed, this new era of the Church and the world will become firmly established. This era will be characterized by the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. All those who consecrate themselves to My Heart and to My Mother's Heart will help to establish this glorious new age. I am Lord and Master. Please listen to My urgent request. Within Our Hearts you will experience the love and security, the peace and the joy, which you all desire. I love My people with a tremendous love, and in My love I give them this message!"

From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter

  

 

R.  Before the 17th meeting in January of 1995, I had received the following vision when at Mass at the Cathedral of Saint Peter in Chains. It was either late December, 1994 or early January, 1995. I drew the picture in the notebook.

It looks as follows:

vision
when at Mass at the Cathedral of Saint Peter in Chains

The face was a flesh colored, but I could not see the features. The gown was white with a square neck.

The next day Jesus told me it was Father Carter. This vision along with another vision I had received about the same time appeared on the 17th book in January 1995.

The other vision was a church that looked similar to our church in China, Indiana, and in the front of the church was a gigantic Host with tremendous light coming forth from it.

On the cover was a Shepherd and the world.

The vision of the church looked like this:

There was a message at this meeting. The message said that THE POWER is in the Eucharist.

This Is My Love for You

Wouldn't get up, the phone rang once but it really wasn't the phone.

R.  Come to Me Lord and Possess My Soul

Jesus:  Oh Child do you know how you are so blessed? Today, let go, you are always thinking. You are cleaned and made clean, it is in dying that you are reborn to new life.

    Let go, let go, let go, you hold on so tight to such things.

Sing:  Little Child

Jesus:  I am the Almighty God and I am guarding you. Do not worry, fret or fume, that is from Satan.

    I am Jesus your Savior, I love you with an unending love.

R.  Oh the Name Jesus, at your name all should bow in such reverence. You are the Savior of this world. Such power and might in the name of Jesus, such comfort and joy.

Jesus:  Do you believe child that I am truly writing you? You would not get up so I rang the phone one time. I want to be alone with you in the morning. Let go, let go, let go.
   

Jesus:  I am Almighty, I laid lifeless in My Mother's arms. This is My love for you. You do not realize even a minute amount of My love. Meditate on My life, there is such a treasure in praying the rosary. I will help you circulate the rosary meditations. Mary is coming to you to spread the joy of the rosary throughout the earth.

    I love you so much, My dear one and you do not comprehend. You are so blind, I want to be ever closer and joined to you in such love. Live the mysteries of the rosary, My life will become ever clear to you. I love you so much.  Jesus

Be Pure in Heart

R.  The priest has the power to forgive sins. Given to him from Jesus. I want a pure soul, to unite with You most deeply my soul must be pure, I do not want stain of sin on my soul. The whiter my soul, the more I can unite with Him. The priest can hear our sins and take them away through Jesus. The purer we are the closer we can be to Jesus.

    Any taint of sin on my soul keeps me in some darkness.

Jesus:  I am light, I am love, you must purify your hearts. Come from a place of purity. Why would you hold on to sin when I have given you the priest to forgive you? Oh child, don't worry about the priest, I am there in the priest, it is God who hears your sins, it is God who forgives your sins. You are so foolish, you trade deeper union with Me for such incidental things. I give you the priest to forgive your sins. You do not even think about My sacrament and what a gift it is to you.

    The priest has the power to forgive sins. Penance is a sacrament, it is not appreciated as it should be, it is taken so lightly. The Sacrament of Penance is such a great gift. Say you are sorry, you are given such a gift and it is treated so lightly.

    Tell people about confession. Tell them how the priest can remove your sins.

    Your bridegroom waits. I want souls that are pure. I am the Almighty God, focus on My kingdom, live to be holy. Prepare your hearts and souls, beg for a clean soul. All sin blocks union with Me. I LOVE YOU DEEPLY - I AM GOD - COME TO MY SACRAMENT AND BE MADE CLEAN.

R.  Alleluia and He gave to them such gifts their souls were made clean, their hearts loosed from hate and anger and they were made whole in Him.

Joyful Mysteries

The Annunciation

  1. R.  The Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and asked her to be the mother of Jesus.
  2. Mary always complied with the Will of the Father. She said, "…let it happen to me as you have said." (Lk 1:38)
  3. R.  Mary was filled with the Holy Spirit, and the Word became flesh.
  4. R.  There was always great intimacy between Jesus and His mother. From the first moment of conception she felt the life of Jesus, Son of God, grow within her womb.
  5. R.  The child Jesus is with us this day. He is in our brothers. He is in our children. If the child Jesus were here and we were to hold Him, to talk to and be with Him, we would treat Him with such joy and such kindness! Jesus is in our brothers. Jesus is in our children. Jesus is here this day. Do we treat our brothers, our children, one another, with the same kindness that we would the child Jesus?
  6. R.  The invisible Jesus was inside of Mary's womb. He was there in His divinity and His humanity. He was God from the first moment of conception. The invisible Jesus remains with us today in the tabernacle. He is present there in His divinity and humanity. We do not see Him, but He is no less present in the tabernacle than the day Mary carried Him in her womb.
  7. R.  God is Love! He calls out to us to come to Him, to be close to Him. He truly waits for us in the tabernacle. He is a prisoner awaiting those He loves, the precious souls. So many forget Him day after day while He, the Son of God, waits and waits to share His love with the precious souls that He came to this earth to save.
  8. R.  He calls out to us, "Do you not have one hour to watch with Me, the Son of God? I, God, Who came to this earth and was born a human for love of you! I call out to you this day. Take Me seriously! I am truly here, no less present than on the day that Mary carried Me in her womb, and I wait for you with a Heart that is overflowing with divine love and divine life. Can you say no to this divine love that I want to outpour to you?"
  9. R.  It was in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary that the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus was formed. Jesus took on our human nature out of great love for us.
  10. R.  Jesus was carried in Mary's womb. Her womb was a temple to hold the precious Child. She is the Mother of God!

Song between decades: Ave, ave, ave, Maria. Ave, ave, ave, Maria.

 

The Visitation

  1. R.  The angel had told Mary that her cousin Elizabeth had conceived a child. Mary made haste to the hill country to visit her.
  2. Upon Mary's arrival at Elizabeth's house, Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out with a loud voice, "Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb." (Lk 1:42)
  3. "Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord?" (Lk 1:43) Usually the servant goes to the master. But Mary, with the Almighty God within her womb, went to visit Elizabeth.
  4. R.  Jesus waits for us this day. He is God and He waits in the tabernacle for us to come and be with Him. He comes to us in the Eucharist. He is the Almighty God and He waits for mere humans to come and share His love.
  5. R.  We receive so much love from God! The Father loved us so much that He sent His only begotten Son into this world so that we might be saved. Jesus waits this very day for us to come and be with Him. It is out of great love that the Master waits for us.
  6. R.  When Mary and Jesus arrived at Elizabeth's house, the child in Elizabeth's womb leapt for joy. John, who was to announce the good news that Jesus had come to this earth, even before his birth leapt with joy in the womb of his mother at the presence of Jesus in Mary's womb.
  7. R.  Should we not leap for joy? Jesus Christ, the Son of God, born of the Virgin Mary, waits for us this day, no less present than the day He was carried in Mary's womb to the home of her cousin Elizabeth. We take His presence so lightly! We do not see, so we do not realize that God, in His humanity and divinity, is truly present in the tabernacle and waiting for us this very day.
  8. R.  Mary was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out, with a loud voice, her Magnificat:
    "My soul proclaims
        the greatness of the Lord
    and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour;" (Lk 1:46,47)
  9. "…because he has looked upon
        the humiliation of his servant
    .
    Yes, from now onwards
        all generations will call me blessed," (Lk 1:48)
  10. "…for the Almighty
        has done great things for me.
    Holy is his name,"

Song between decades: Ave, ave, ave Maria....

 

The Birth of Jesus

  1. R.  The Father bridges the gap between divinity and humanity in the person of Jesus Christ.
  2. R.  Jesus came into this world. Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of the Father, equal in every way to the Father, came into this world as a little baby, a helpless little baby. If we realized the true majesty of God, if we saw Him in all His majesty, we could not even stand to look at Him. But Jesus, clothed in flesh, comes as a helpless little baby, born in a little crib in a stable in Bethlehem!
  3. R.  Do we realize the immense love that the Father has for us that He sent His only begotten Son into this world as a human in the person of Jesus Christ?
  4. R.  Jesus, a divine Person, unites His human nature and His divine nature in His Person.
  5. R.  Who are we that God loves us so much that He would take on a human nature!
  6. R.  We become brothers of God!
  7. R.  He comes, the Son of God, in such quiet and such poverty! There is not a roll of drums or a blare of trumpets. He comes in such quiet and a star shines on Him. Is this not how it is when we receive Him in the Eucharist? We ascend the altar. There is not a roll of drums. There is not a blare of trumpets. Quietly we approach the altar and we truly receive God! He comes to us and enters our body in such love! Who are we that God remains with us this day in such love and comes to us to be so closely united to us!?
  8. R.  We see the consecrated Host. But within the consecrated Host is truly God, in His divinity and His humanity.
  9. R.  We look for those things that are visible. But are not the true treasures found in those things that are invisible? The reality is that this is God's world! We see the things in front of our face and we do not realize how the world of Jesus and Mary truly is. We do not realize how they are with us this very day. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, remains with us this day in His divinity and humanity in the Eucharist. We are surrounded by His presence in one another. He dwells and lives in each one of us when we are in the state of grace. In every blade of grass, the life that is there comes from God. Yet we are so blind! We see so little! Holy Spirit, open up our eyes. Where we are blind, let us see. Let us see more and more the invisible world. Let us know more and more the presence of God as it is all around us. Help us to see Jesus in each other. Help us to be more aware of Jesus Christ, who is truly present with us in the tabernacle.
  10. R.  Open our eyes to see beyond what is visible, Lord. Holy Spirit, help us to see beyond the consecrated Host and see Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Song between decades: Ave, ave, ave, Maria...

 

The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple

  1. R.  The Holy Spirit told Simeon that he would not die until He saw the child of God. The Holy Spirit led Him into the Temple. Jesus, Mary and Joseph came to the Temple and the old man was overjoyed at the sight of the child Jesus. He held Him with such joy in his arms and said that now he was ready to die for he had seen God.
  2. R.  Holy Spirit, enkindle in us the fire of Your love so we may see more clearly Jesus Christ, Who is with us this very day. So that we may see that He is God and, out of great love for each one of us, remains with us, waits for us, longs for us, and wants us to open our hearts wide so that He may enter in. Remove the blinders from our eyes, dear Holy Spirit, and lead us ever closer to intimacy with Jesus Christ, our beloved Savior.
  3. Song: Come Holy Ghost, Creator blest, and in our hearts take up Thy rest. Come with Thy grace and heavenly aid to fill the hearts which Thou hast made, to fill the hearts which Thou hast made.
  4. Simeon told Joseph and Mary of the great sufferings that Mary and Jesus would have to undergo and he said to Mary, "and a sword will pierce your soul too..." (Lk 2:35)
  5. R.  Think of how it would be for Mary to look at her small child Jesus and know that He would experience great suffering. From this point on a sword pierced Mary's Heart. Each time that she beheld her child she remembered the prophecy of Simeon and she suffered.
  6. R.  And how Mary suffered! The swords that pierced her Heart so many times through Jesus' life! The sword that pierced her Heart on the way to Calvary as she peered into the eyes of her beloved Son, that gaze that shows to us the great intimacy between the Son and His mother, that Heart that knew her Son so well!
  7. Her Heart was pierced with a sword as she stood beneath His cross and watched Him suffer in such anguish for three agonizing hours. The precious Child that she had held in her arms in the Temple when Simeon told her, "and a sword will pierce your soul too..." (Lk 2:35)
  8. Song: I rocked Him as a baby, I fed Him as a child. I heard Him call my name out in the night. I helped Him take His first step, and I cried when I heard His first words. I wish they all could see through a mother's eyes.
  9. R.  Mary, just as you presented the child Jesus in your arms in the temple, tuck us into the Heart of Jesus and present us to our loving Father so that we may be ever closer and closer to the Heart of Jesus and the Father. And lead us closer to your beloved Spouse, the Holy Spirit.
  10. R.  Holy Spirit, the more we unite with Mary, our mother, transform us more and more into the image of Jesus and lead us ever closer to the Father.

Song between decades: Ave, ave, ave, Maria…

 

The Finding of Jesus in the Temple

  1. R.  When Jesus was twelve years old, He was taken up to the Temple for the feast of Passover.
  2. R.  When it was over, Mary and Joseph left Jerusalem but the child Jesus remained there.
  3. R.  They had gone a day's journey before they realized that the child Jesus had been left behind.
  4. R.  With great sorrow in their hearts they returned and searched for the child Jesus.
  5. R.  They found Him in the temple where He was teaching the doctors.
  6. R.  Jesus, as you taught the doctors in the temple, teach us Your divine truths. Holy Spirit, open our hearts so that we may more and more receive Your gifts to know, love and understand God so that we might grow in greater love and knowledge of our beloved God!
  7. R.  And the Holy Spirit came upon them and filled their hearts full of wisdom and knowledge and joy to know more and more the divine truths that the Savior came to give us. His ever burning Heart remains with us this day, this Heart that wants to give to us such love, such life! He imparts this life to us abundantly in the Eucharist whereby He feeds our life. When we come to the Eucharist, He outpours this life, this life of grace. He wants to give us His very life, His Body, His Blood, to nurture and feed our life, and we balk! We stumble. We wander around and complain! And this good God, Who came to this earth and was born a human, gave His flesh and blood and died for us and rose on the third day to give us His life, remains with us this day with His very own flesh and blood to feed this life! He gives us His Word to feed us and we take it so lightly! He calls out ever so gently in His tender voice and with His burning Heart. He calls out to us and says, "Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest!" But in our blindness we turn away and we do not realize the true treasure that is here! This is the Son of God Who remains with us this day, truly present, the same as the day He was in the Temple, the same as the day He hung on the cross, the same as the day He rose from the tomb and ascended into heaven! And He calls out in a gentle voice, with a burning Heart, "My dear children, I long for your love. Open up your hearts to Me. I am the Son of God! I have all the power! You cannot in your foolish ways do anything without Me!"
  8. Song: I come to you with greatest love. I am your loving Savior. I am your God, I died for you. I come to you this day.
  9. R.  Dear Mary, if we ever lose our way from the Most Sacred Heart of your Son, lead us back quickly.
    Song: O burning Heart, O Love divine. How sweet You are to me. I see the Host, I know You are here to love and care for me
  10. Song: Give me Your Heart, O Jesus. Give me a heart like Yours. Teach me to love You with this new heart. Oh, I know little of how to love You. Create in me, O precious Savior, this loving heart!

  

The Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary

1.  The Prophecy of Simeon.   R.  Mary and Joseph and the child Jesus went to the temple and Simeon the Prophet, inspired by the Holy Spirit, met them and told Joseph and Mary of the great sufferings of Jesus and Mary. He told Mary that a sword would pierce her heart. And from that point on, Mary ever remembered the prophecy of Simeon when she beheld her child. When she looked at His little body she knew He would suffer. As an infant, she knew He would suffer. Every time she clothed Him and watched Him at play, her heart was torn in her chest as she knew what He would suffer. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

2.  The Flight Into Egypt.   R.  Joseph was told by the angel to flee. In the night, Joseph and Mary and the child Jesus had to flee because of what might happen to Jesus. They had to pack for a long stay. The child Jesus was so small. They left on their journey, hearts full of fear, trying to protect Jesus. They were forced to flee into Egypt. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

3.  Jesus Was Lost in the Temple.   R.  Imagine the sufferings to Mary's heart when she realized the child Jesus was not with them. Think of how it would be to lose your child and not know where He was or if anything happened to Him. With such sorrow in their hearts, Mary and Joseph returned to Jerusalem to look for the child Jesus. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

4.  Jesus and Mary Meet on the Way to the Cross.    Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

R.  See the eyes of Jesus and Mary as They peered into one another's eyes on Calvary. Mary's Heart knew Jesus' Heart so well! From the first moment of conception through His life, Mary was so connected with Jesus and now she peers into His eyes. The crown of thorns adorned His Head! Blood ran down His face! A heavy cross on His back! Wounded! His whole body wounded with bleeding wounds! And her whole life flashed before her, the life that she had spent with Jesus. This was the beloved child that she held in her arms when Simeon told Mary that a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

5.  Jesus Dies on the Cross.  R.  Mary stood under Jesus' cross as He was put to death. The child that she held in her arms as Simeon prophesied! And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary! (Mary loves us to meditate silently on the crucifixion of her Beloved Son) Now Jesus, dead on the cross! He gave His flesh, He gave His blood so that we may be with Him forever in Heaven. He held not back. He gave His all. He calls out to us this day to see through the eyes of His Mother as she appears and calls out with a Heart of greatest love: 

Mary:  Return to the love of my Son! He is with you this day. He remains with you no less present than the day that He hung on the cross in the Eucharist. He longs for you to come and be with Him. He is in your brother. How can you not love your brother when Jesus died for your brother?

R.  Her Heart was pierced with a sword. His Heart was pierced with a lance. What came forth was blood and water — the sacramental life of the Church. He lives with us this day in the Church. He gives to us His sacraments. He outpours His grace when we go to the sacraments. He gives to us the Sacrament of Penance whereby any sin that we commit can be taken away through the priest. He wants us to be so close to Him. He gives us everything to be close to Him. But we see with such limited vision those things that are just before our face, when the true reality are those things that we don't see with our eyes. Jesus is truly present in the tabernacle. This is reality! This is God! And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

6.  Jesus is Taken Down From the Cross and Laid In Mary's Arms.  If we ever doubted for one second that we were loved, we could visualize the picture of Mary as she sat beneath the cross with the lifeless, battered, bruised, and bloodied body of her Son in her arms. The same child that she held when Simeon prophesied her suffering. He gave His last breath. He gave the last beat of His Heart. He gave His all! This is the way He complied to the Will of the Father. He comes to show us the way. He died in perfect peace. To His death He was in peace because He knew the Father's love. The Father loves us so much that He gave His only begotten Son for love of us! The Spirit came upon the Virgin Mary and the Word was made Flesh! The love of the Two Hearts! Such immense love beating for us! In all love there is suffering. Her Heart was pierced with a sword. His Heart was pierced with a lance. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

7.  The Burial of Jesus.   R.  And now Jesus, His lifeless body, is locked in a tomb! The stone that separated her from her Son! He gave His last breath! He gave the last beat of His Heart for love of each one of us! And she comes to us this day with her sweet, beautiful voice and she asks us to go to her Son and love Him! How can we refuse Jesus who spread His arms and gave His life for us? How can we not trust Him when He loved us so much that He allowed them to tear His flesh, to crown Him with piercing thorns and lastly to hang Him on a cross? He truly gave His life for us! He truly, God, is with us this day, the same as the day He died on the cross. He is in the Tabernacle! And we take it so lightly! Death has no power over Him! As He was locked in the tomb for three days, through the power of the Holy Spirit He rose triumphant on the third day as He foretold. He comes to give us life. He gives us the Sacrament of Baptism whereby we are made children of God and heirs of Heaven. He asks us two things: Love of God and love of one another! He came to show us they way and His way is Love. To His death on the cross! He gave His flesh and blood for love of us! He calls out to each one of us here today to be His soldiers, to march on a world that has forgotten God, that has forgotten what it is like to love! It is a battle to live in this world. But the battle is won with hearts that are filled with His love, empowered by His grace and might that He outpours in the Eucharist. He calls out to come to the Eucharist and to the Tabernacle and be fed with His very flesh and blood. To feed on the Eucharist. He gives us Himself, His Body and Blood,  the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God! This is the love He gives. This is the love He asks us to share.

Song:  From the Day You Were Born.

Jesus:  I watched you, My precious child, as you struggled through such struggles that you thought that a tomorrow would never come. And I was right by your side. I never abandoned you. As you breathe, I am a Burning Heart of Love waiting for you to come to Me — waiting and waiting. And I call out so gently, for My Heart is burning, and I ask you to come. For I am waiting for you this day to come closer and share My Love — My Divine Love — I want to outpour My grace to you, My beloved ones!

Sing:  From the Day You Were Born

Jesus:  Satan will press down and press down and try to take you from your work and lead you from My Heart, but I am waiting for you and your strength is in Me, My beloved ones. Come and let Me feed you with My Love. I gave you My Life that you might have life and have it to the full. And life is not life, if it is not rooted in Me. You are My soldiers. Spread this life throughout this world. Be strong soldiers for I am calling you this day to love your brothers. For it is in your love that you will do My work.

This rosary was prayed before the Tabernacle in the Holy Spirit Chapel. It was audio taped by a man. Rita, Cathy, Joe, Marty and many others were present.

Salem Park Nursing Home

Jesus: My dear, sweet ones, I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. How I long and thirst for you, My precious souls. I wait for each one of you. I want to be so close to you. You see before you your world. You do not realize how truly present I am. As you breathe, so your heart beats. I am forever with you. My Heart is a burning furnace of endless love.

    Time here is so short, here today - gone tomorrow. I came to this earth that you may have life and have it to the full. Life is not life if it is not rooted in Me - it is mere existence. The Father created you with the greatest love. You are His precious child. There is not another person like you. The Father loved you so much He sent His only begotten Son into the world so that you might be saved. I want you to be with Me forever in heaven, joined in such union with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Oh, sweet one, open your heart and pray to Me. Pray to the Spirit to lead you. Life here is but a passing moment, the dropping of a pin, the batting of an eye.

    I ask you for two things: love of God, love of one another. Hearken to My call. Close your eyes and open your hearts. Forgive all those who have offended you. It is only in a pure heart that I can be close to you. To hold on to anger and hatred is to make your hearts hard. Your home in heaven is beyond all comprehension. Live to spread My love that you may forever dwell with Me for all eternity in the courts of heaven.

    I love you. I love you. I love you. You are My precious ones. Trade any bitterness you have for My divine love. I love you so much. Offer up your sufferings for the souls that are hurting. It is in loving you will find joy. All that you do, do it for love of God and love of your brother, and someday you will inherit a Kingdom far beyond your comprehension. Heaven is a reward promised to those who love and serve the Lord. I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me will never be hungry. It is in loving you will find your greatest peace.

'Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest.  Matthew 11: 28

R.  Alleluia, Alleluia, and He gave to them great graces to be drawn ever closer to His Sacred heart, the Heart of burning love.

Mary: My dear children, I am your Mother Mary. I ask you to pray the rosary from your heart. Put yourself there in the lives of my Son, Jesus, and me.

    In meditating on Our lives you will grow more and more into the image of Jesus, my Son. He loves you so much. He gave His flesh and Blood for you. He would die for you this day.

    My sweet children, open up your hearts and let me lead you to His loving Heart. He loves you so much!

       

February 2, 1995 - 1:45 p.m.

Talk at St. Ignatius

Jesus: My dear children, I ask you to purify your hearts. Rid your hearts of any debris that is keeping you from greater union with Me. Any ill feelings toward your brothers diminishes the flow of My love within you.

    If you want holiness, you must be willing to forgive all those who have wronged you. Trade your bitterness for My divine love. I call out to you with this urgent message: purify your hearts, go to confession! Time is so important. Each moment you live, live to spread My love.

Song: A Song from Jesus

    Reach out. It is in the reaching out that you will grow ever closer to Me.

    Pray to the Spirit. He wants to transform you into fearlessness. You must be fearless soldiers to spread My love to a world that is Godless. I call out to you this day will you answer this call?

    Oh, sweet ones. I love you so much. I am forever with you. I remain with you in the tabernacle, no less present than the day I died for you.

    I wait for you, I long for you. I want you so close. Put aside your doubts. Open your heart now to experience My abundant grace that I am pouring out to you, grace I am especially giving to you, this night to help you grow ever closer to Me, to help you to know and love Me more.

    It is through the grace I pour out to you that you will grow in your knowledge and love of Me, the Father and Holy Spirit.

    I give you My grace abundantly in the Sacrament of the Eucharist and in front of the tabernacle. I am truly present in My Divinity and humanity.

    Let go and experience the fire of My love. I AM ALIVE, I AM TRULY PRESENT IN THE EUCHARIST. I CALL OUT TO YOU THIS DAY. Open your heart so you will be closer to Me. I call you to union with Me. Come to My tabernacle. Let Me fill you with the burning fire of My love. Let Me give to you My grace, My Life. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God, born in a stable in the town of Bethlehem. Open your eyes, pray to the Spirit for vision. You see so little. You do not know how My love will set this earth on fire it begins with you!

Song: Come Holy Spirit

Jesus:  You are My soldiers to set the world on fire. I ask for two things love of God, love of one another. Come My children, harken to My call, pray for vision. I am on FIRE with burning love for you.

    I remain in the tabernacle and wait and long for you to come. Come, I call you today. Come let Me nourish you with My Body and Blood, My life I give to you. Oh children, I love you so, I love you, I love you, I love you. Harken to My call, one person fixed to the love of God can move a mountain. You are the light that will shine in this dark world. I call. Will you answer?

Song:  I Love You Jesus

R.  We need to fall in Love with the Lord.

    When we love Him, we will want to be with Him.

Feast of Presentation of Our Lord
 

Transcribed from a tape recorded live as Rita delivered it.
Before the Exposed Eucharist at St. Ignatius.
The Church had many people there.

Sorrowful Mysteries

  

The Agony in the Garden

1.  R.  Put yourself in the Garden with Jesus. Be there in the night. See Jesus as He kneels.

2.  R.  Jesus' greatest agony in the Garden was the agonies He experienced to His Most Sacred Heart. He loved each soul so dearly and He saw before Him all the souls from all time that would neglect Him and treat Him indifferently, would not even think about Him. His Heart burning over with love for each of His precious ones, He saw before Him all the souls that would not even think of Him.

3.  R.  He saw before Him all the souls that would be condemned to eternal damnation despite the fact that He would suffer and that He would die on the cross for them.

4.  R.  We do not realize the immensity of His love. We do not realize that Jesus is God, that He was born a man out of greatest love for us. The Father sent His only Son into this world to take on a human nature because He loves us so much. And Jesus, now in the Garden, seeing before Him all the souls that would not even realize the great gift that had been given to them, souls that would reject His love and spend their whole life without even a thought of Him!

5.  R.  Jesus, out of greatest love for us, remains with us this very day in the Tabernacle. Jesus remains with us no less present than the day that He was in the Garden, in His Divinity and humanity. He waits! He longs! He thirsts for our love! He wants us to come and to share His love. He waits for us so many endless hours in the Tabernacle! How He suffered in the Garden for the endless hours that He would be a prisoner in the Tabernacle. God made Man, and no one would come and be with Him!

6.  R.  Jesus' Heart is a burning furnace of endless love!

7.  R.  Jesus saw before Him His entire Passion, everything that He would suffer. He suffered all this because He loved us so much. His agony was so great that His sweat became as great drops of blood upon the ground, blood that He shed for love of us!

8.  R.  Jesus went to His disciples and they were asleep and He said to them: Can you not watch one hour with Me? How Jesus says to us this very day: I give you twenty-four hours in a day! Twenty-four hours I wait for you to come. I am truly God! I wait. Out of greatest love I wait for My beloved souls to come and to be with Me. It is usually that the servant goes to the Master! But He is God and He waits us, a human, to come and be with Him. And out of the twenty-four hours that we have in the day, how many times do we say to Him - I do not have one hour to spend with You, My Lord!

9.  Hail Mary

10.  Hail Mary

Song between decades:  A Song from Jesus

  

Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar

1.  R.  How Jesus loved Judas so dearly and Judas betrayed Him with a kiss. How Jesus loves each one of us with a burning Heart on fire. How He waits for us and remains with us this day!

2.  R.  They pulled His hair! They hit His face and they led Him away as a common criminal!

3.  R.  They tied Him to a pillar and the men stood around Him. They whipped Him! They tore His flesh! They beat Him to their own exhaustion!

4.  R.  Be there with Jesus as He is tied to the pillar. Be there and hear the blows they gave to our Beloved Jesus. His once unblemished back is now an open wound!

5.  R.  Can you hear the blows that they gave to Jesus? He suffered those blows for every one of us! He suffered them for me! He suffered them for you!

6.  R.  Jesus calls us to love; love of God and love of one another. How can I not love my brother when I can hear as they whip Jesus. I can hear the blows that they gave to Him! I know that He loved my brother so much that He took those blows. How can I not love my brother when Jesus suffered so for love of my brother?

7.  R.  Jesus calls out to us to meditate deeply on His Passion because it is in this meditation that we will realize more and more the immensity of the great love that He has for each one of us and that He truly stood at the pillar and suffered as they beat His body because He loves us this much! He would go through this, this very day, for each one of us because His love is a personal love. He loves each one of us individually, as the Father loves each one of us individually. He created each one of us uniquely special.

8.  R.  Dear Jesus, help me to realize more and more the immensity of Your great love. Draw me ever closer to Your Most Sacred Heart. Help me to grow in my union with the Father, with You, with the Holy Spirit through Your Beloved Mother.

9.  R.  Dear Holy Spirit, fill us with the fire of God's love. The Fire! The vibrancy of God's love! Dear Holy Spirit, fill me with the fire of Your love so I realize more and more that the love that You have is not a little lip service love but it is the love that Jesus had for us when they scourged Him at the pillar to stand and let them beat His body out of greatest love for us!

10.  Hail Mary

Song between decades:  A Song from Jesus

 

Jesus is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

1.  R.  They covered Jesus' body with a dirty purple cloak. His open wounds covered with this cloth! And they gave Him a scepter to hold and pounded into His Most Precious Head a sharp crown of piercing thorns!

2.  R.  The blood from His thorns ran down His face and into His eyes and into His ears. His mouth was full of blood from the blows they gave to His head. But He said not a word! He sat and He suffered all of this!

3.  R.  They spit on Jesus and they mocked Him as a King! In compliance with the Will of the Father and out of greatest love for us, Jesus was silent!

4.  R.  The little, innocent lamb led to the slaughter!

5.  R.  Jesus came to this earth - God made man - to show us the way! Jesus Christ is our Savior.

6.  R.  Jesus showed us the way. How He loved! He loved us so much that He suffered this brutal passion and He calls out to us this day: Do you not see, you who are so blind, the immense love that I have for each and every one of you? I wait for you. I long for you. I thirst for you to come and to be with Me. And how few come!

7.  Jesus:  My presence surrounds you. I am truly present in My Divinity and My humanity in the Tabernacle. I am present inside of each one of you in such a special way when you are baptized and in the state of grace. I  see life in a blade of grass. You who are so blind, pray to the Spirit to open your eyes more and more to My presence for it is in this realization that you will be drawn ever closer to My Most Sacred Heart.

8.  R.  Jesus was persecuted! He was whipped! He was treated so harshly! But these were not the greatest agonies that He suffered. His greatest agonies were the agonies that He suffered to His Most Sacred Heart. He, who loves each soul so dearly! How souls reject Him!

9.  R.  As Jesus suffered so for the sins of men, He was comforted by the acts of love that we give to Him this day. He was comforted by the hours that we spend with Him in front of the Tabernacle, the time we spend with Him after Communion, the time that we unite so closely to Him all through the day and tell Him of our great love. Jesus can experience this love now!

10.  R.  We love Jesus and Mary. Jesus thirsts and longs for this love! Mary wants our love.

Jesus Carries His Cross

1.  R.  Jesus stood, His hands tied, the look of peace on His face. The angry men stood around Him with their instruments to jab Jesus. The hate and anger on their faces and in their hearts! But Jesus remained at peace because He knew the Father's love. The Father loves us so much that He sent His only begotten Son into this world. Do we realize how the Father loves us? Jesus had such peace. Jesus knew the Father's love.

2.  R.  They gave to Jesus a heavy cross that they put on His shoulder. He was made to carry this cross. It was laden with the sins of all men from all time! Jesus carried this cross willingly. He did not surrender the cross or try to give it away. He finally collapsed because the weight of it was so heavy. But willingly, He carried His cross on Calvary.

3.  R.  His Mother by His side! She walked by His side always! She saw the little child that she once held in her arms and loved so dearly. She saw Him covered with blood, wounded, carrying the heavy cross. She heard the cross as it went along the road. She helplessly stood by. She could not raise a hand to help her Beloved One!

4.  R.  Their eyes peered into each other's eyes. In that peering look Their Hearts were joined. Mary saw her Son from the time she had conceived Him in her womb. She knew Jesus so well. In that look was this look of knowing between this Son and this Mother - all the time that Jesus and Mary had shared together!

5.  R.  Mary appears to us to tell us of the love of her Son. She asks us to see through her eyes as her Son carried His cross on Calvary. See through her eyes the love that He has for each one of you. This is truth! Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to earth out of greatest love for each and every one of us and suffered this brutal Passion to His death because He loves each one of us so dearly.

6.  R.  Mary appears with her sorrowful face. Mary appears with her joyful face. She appears with her old and young face. All the faces of the lives of Jesus and Mary that we meditate on in the Rosary. It is in this meditation of the Rosary that we are drawn ever closer to Their lives; that we can more and more imitate Their lives, and live more and more like Jesus and Mary.

7.  R.  Can you see Mary as she so tenderly holds the child Jesus and now see through her eyes the horror that she watches as He carried His cross on His back? See the blood that was teaming from His face and His wounded body! Can you see through the eyes of His loving Mother? And she comes to us and she says: See the love My Son has for you. It is in realizing this immense love that you will spread this love to the hurting soldiers in this world. There are so many hurting souls!

8.  Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

9.  R.  Open up our eyes, O Spirit, so that we may see more and more with the vision of God, that we may realize more and more the immensity of the love of God. Fill our hearts full of this fire of the love of God so that we can radiate Your love that You want to give through us to this world. Make us empty vessels to spread this love to the darkened world that is hurting and needs to be touched by Your immense love.

10.  R.  Mary carried Jesus in her womb. She held Him as a child. Mary was with Jesus all through His life. Now she walks beside Him on the way to Calvary. She asks us to see through her eyes. Stand with Mary through these meditations on the Rosary. Stand next to her! See the love of these two Hearts; the love of her heart for each one of us and the love of His Heart for us. It is in realizing the love of the Two Hearts of Jesus and Mary that we will grow closer in our union with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Song between decades:  A Song from Jesus

 

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1.  R.  Mary held the baby Jesus in her arms as Simeon prophesied the immense sufferings that Mary and Jesus would suffer. Mary held the tiny child, with His little hands and His little feet. From that point on, Mary remembered the prophecy of Simeon. Now she stands by as they pound into Jesus' Most Precious Hands and Feet the big nails! Mary is so closely united to Jesus. They both suffered so immensely for each one of us. She calls out again and again to come back to the love of her Son. It is only in realizing your calling that you will spread this love to the hurting world. We are the apostles to spread the love of the Two Hearts, the Hearts that suffered all this anguish because They love us so much. She asks us this day: Please My beloved children, lead men to the love of My Son! He longs to be close to them!

2.  R.  It is in spreading this love that many souls may go to heaven. Mary calls out to you! Can you say no? It takes courage! It takes the fearlessness the apostles had when the Holy Spirit descended upon them. The apostles had been so full of fear they had locked themselves in the upper room. When the Holy Spirit descended upon them, they were fearless. They went out into the world to preach the Gospel. Mary's calling is this calling to you this day - to go out into a world that has turned godless and to spread the Good News! The Good News is: God sent His only begotten Son into this world and out of greatest love He suffered so all through the Passion - He rose on the third day to give us new life - He came to give us life that we may have it abundantly - and He ascended into Heaven! He wants us with Him forever and ever and ever in Heaven. Can we take this call from the Blessed Virgin Mary so lightly? Mary, who watched Her Son as they pounded the nails through to the cross!

3.  R.  Mary stood under the cross and Mary watched her Son as He hung for three agonizing hours. Stand there with Mary in the darkened sky. See as the wind blows Jesus covered with blood and battered! He hangs there to His very death because He loves each one of us so much!

4.  R.  They pierced Jesus' head. Think of how it is to have a splinter that goes into your hands. But think of the thorns that were pounded into His Most Precious Head - every drop of blood that He had was spent. He gave His very flesh! He gave His life! He said once: I GAVE MYSELF! I GAVE MY LIFE ON THE CROSS! WHAT MORE DO THEY WANT? I GIVE MYSELF TO YOU THIS DAY! I AM TRULY PRESENT IN THE EUCHARIST THE SAME AS THE DAY THAT I HUNG ON THE CROSS. In My Divinity and humanity, I give you My Life, I give you My Body, I give you My Blood to nourish the life that I give to you in baptism and you take it so lightly!

5.  Song:  Take and Eat

6.  R.  Jesus would lament many times when people would leave after Communion and Jesus said: If I were in the church with My cross on My back walking across the front of the church, do you think people would get up and leave? Jesus said over and over again: I GIVE MYSELF TO YOU! I GIVE MY LIFE TO YOU IN THE EUCHARIST! I AM GOD! And men get up and they walk out and they talk and they do not even realize the great gift that they are given here!

7.  R.  Jesus calls us to love each other as He has loved us. He loved us to His death on the cross! Does that mean that He calls us this day to love our brothers so much that we would die for them?

8.  R.  Jesus loved us so much that He died for us!

9.  R.  They gave to Mary, Jesus' lifeless body under the cross. As Mary held the child Jesus, she now holds the lifeless, battered, bruised body of her beloved Son in her arms. Can you say no to Mary's call? You are the soldiers to spread His love throughout this world. One person fixed deeply on the love of God can move a mountain because it is His might that radiates from within you that has all the power. Mary calls out today to come to the Tabernacle. The Tabernacle is the source of such immense power. It is in it that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, dwells no less present than the day that He walked on Calvary. Can we say No to this Divine Love He gives to us and He outpours His grace in the Eucharist. So abundantly does Jesus outpour His grace to us in the Eucharist because Jesus is truly present in His Divinity and humanity and the graces flow!

10.  Hail Mary

Song between decades:  A Song from Jesus

 

The Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary  

  Sorrowful Mother Lighted.

 

1.  The Prophecy of Simeon.   R.  Mary and Joseph took the child Jesus into the Temple. Simeon had been told by the Holy Spirit that before he died he would see the Messiah. The Holy Spirit led him into the temple and he saw Mary and Joseph and Jesus. He went over and held the child Jesus. Then he said that he was ready to die and he told Mary that a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, Mary! From that point on, whenever she looked at the child Jesus, she remembered the prophecy of Simeon of how Jesus would suffer. Think of looking at your child and knowing what Mary knew! Her heart through her whole life knew this prophecy. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

    

 2.  The Flight into Egypt.   R.  Joseph and Mary had to flee into Egypt with Jesus. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

 

 3.  The Loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple.   R.  When Jesus was twelve years old they took Him to the Temple for the Feast of the Passover. When it was over, Joseph and Mary left with the caravan and Jesus had been left behind. When they realized that Jesus was not with them, they returned with their hearts sorrowing in search of the child Jesus. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

 

 4.  On the Way to Calvary Jesus and Mary's eyes Met.   R.  The intimacy in that look between the Son and His Mother! The immense love between the two Hearts! The love that these two Hearts have for us and the call of both Jesus and Mary this day to come back to the love of God!

Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

    

 5.  Mary stood under the Cross as Jesus Died.   R.  I saw Jesus appear. Jesus loves us so dearly! It is Divine  Love He has to outpour to us this day. He wants to give us an outpouring of His grace and love. He remains with us in the Tabernacle truly present in His Divinity and humanity. Jesus Christ, the same Jesus that died on the cross, is present and in our midst this very moment. God loves us so much that He remains with us this day! God is so good to us!

  

 6.  Jesus is taken down from the Cross and laid in Mary's Arms.   R.  See Mary under the cross and they give to her the lifeless body of her Son. She touches her Son and she knows that His body is dead. See that picture so clearly, the picture of the Pieta that you see so much. Think of Mary as she holds the infant child in a horizontal position in her arms and now she holds His lifeless body under the cross. In that picture, if you visualize that, there is so much to see. See the love of the Father that He sent His only begotten Son into this world; God became a man because He loves us so much. See the love that the Son had that He truly gave His flesh and His blood for each one of us. To His death Jesus gave His all for love of us. And Mary, see her with the tears on her face. How can you describe the pain in her heart to hold her Son now lifeless in her arms? Mary is our loving Mother. Mary is my loving Mother. She calls out to us, the Most loving Mother that we could ever imagine! Jesus gave His very own Mother to us! She is calling out to each one of us here, who have been called here this night by Jesus and Mary, to make a commitment to consecrate ourselves to these two Hearts; to be soldiers in this world with our hearts filled with His love! We receive so much grace from sitting in front of the Tabernacle. Pray to be apostles and be able to go out into this world and spread these messages! Pray for the grace from the Holy Spirit to be transformed from fear to fearlessness and to carry the Gospel message with us everywhere we go! What radiates from our being is the love of the God that lives within. She is calling us to grow ever closer in union with Jesus. The greatest thing we can do for this world is to be united to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in our hearts, to let Him operate us, to surrender ourselves, to follow the Plan of the Father, the unique plan God has for us to be His soldiers, to march on a world that has forgotten God. But the Power of the Almighty God is Power that cannot be contained. And in our every smile and glance, this love radiates from our being and we touch every person that we look at when we are united to God!

  

 7.  Jesus is Locked in the Tomb.   R.  The cold reality that now Jesus is locked in the tomb and a stone is rolled in front of the tomb and Mary weeps outside so bitterly. But death has no power over Jesus! Locked in the tomb for three days, on the third day He rose triumphant to give us new life. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus rose on the third day. The Might of God cannot be contained! His life He pours out to us! He gives us a special sharing in His life in the sacrament of Baptism. He has provided for us so well through the Church. We are His chosen ones! Can we not spread this message to this world that is hurting - that is looking in every nook and cranny for something to satisfy the stocking soul? The only thing that satisfies the soul is the love of God! He calls out to us this day to carry this message to every person we meet for it is in our glance, it is in our smile, that we truly will spread His Gospel message, His love to this world.

   

This rosary was prayed at St. Ignatius Church on Thursday evening, 7:30pm., on the Feast of the Presentation, February 2, 1995. Rita gave a talk on the Love of Jesus and Mary following the Rosary. There were many people present.

        

February 3, 1995 - Friday

Between 12 and 3

R.  Eye hurt. His head hurt from all the blows to His head.

R.  Think of how it hurts you, when someone says nasty words. Think of how it is to suffer physical wounds from those you love. To sit as He did at the crowning and hurt intently all over His body, wounds inflicted on Him from those He loved so much.


 

R.  Enough hatred, anger and bad treatment was not enough. From the deepest depths of hate, the darkest place of the ugly hatred of satan, they persecuted Him. It is hard to believe that men can be so hateful in their hearts, but satan knows no limits, He fills men's hearts with hatred beyond our belief and they beat this anger out without mercy on Jesus. From the depths of darkness their vileness swelled within their chest and He responded with love and silence.

    The great display of hatred and anger and He with a look of perfect peace on His face was silent. He loved these men who hated Him. He did not try to reason with these hardened hearts, He loved them.

    When a heart is filled with vileness and anger, we must pray for that person, to respond may mean we are attacked more. Jesus stood there always complying to the will of the Father. He stood there and responded with love.

Jesus:  Love your persecutors. Love those who hate you. Love, always love, I loved to My death, all those who hated Me. With their darkest hearts, I loved them. I love, I love, I love, I am love. Your way is love. If you want to be like Me, you must always love.

Sorrowful Mysteries    

 

The Agony in the Garden

1.  R.  Be with Jesus as He is in the garden in the darkened night. He kneels with such sorrow in His Heart. His Heart is in deepest agony.

2.  R.  The greatest agonies that He suffered were the agonies that He experienced to His Most Sacred Heart.

3.  R.  Jesus' Heart is burning with so much love for each and every soul. Jesus saw before Him the souls that would reject Him and treat Him with such coldness, that would go through their entire life and not even think about Him.

4.  R.  Jesus saw before Him His entire Passion - all that He would suffer!

5.  R.  Jesus saw before Him His most precious loved souls that would be condemned to eternal damnation despite all of His suffering and all the love that He has for them.

6.  R.  Jesus saw before Him the endless hours that He would remain in the Tabernacle out of greatest love — in His Divinity and humanity — and how people would not have time, would not even come and be with Him.

7.  R.  Jesus calls out to us this day to realize how His Heart is burning with such intense love for us. He wants us ever closer and closer to His Most Sacred Heart.

8.  Song:  Come unto Me all who are Weary 

9.  R.  Jesus' anguish was so great that His sweat became as great drops of blood on the ground.

10.  R.  Jesus Christ, the Son of God is truly present in His Divinity and humanity in the Eucharist! No less present than the day that He was in the garden.

Song between decades:  A Song from Jesus

  

Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar

1.  Jesus:  I love My beloved souls so dearly and how they refuse My love after all I suffered for those souls. I am the Savior. They refuse the love, the grace, I give to them.

2.  Jesus:  They beat My body! My skin that was once unmarred was covered - an open wound! They beat ever so hard with such anger and such hatred in their hearts. These men that I loved so dearly, came at Me and beat Me and I stood silently and suffered out of greatest love for you!

3.  R.  Put yourself at the Pillar! See Jesus in the dim light, tied, as they beat Him. Hear the blows! Listen! Hear Jesus as He is beaten by these men!

4.  R.  As they beat Jesus to their own exhaustion, they laughed and they called out insults. Jesus, who is the Son of God beaten for our sins! Jesus silently accepts all that they gave to Him.

5.  R.  How merciless the hearts! Darker and darker — satan creeps in.

6.  R.  Jesus stood in compliance to His Father's will and with greatest love for each and every soul. He suffered so! His greatest agonies were not the wounds that tore His flesh and made Him bleed, but His greatest agonies were the agonies to His Most Precious Heart, for love that He has for so many souls that neglect Him totally!

7.  R.  Listen and hear the blows that they give to Jesus! Listen! These are the blows that He received for the love of each and every soul! He loves all of us so much that He suffered this anguish for us all. How can we not love our brother when we hear the blows that they gave to Jesus' back because He loved our brother?

8.  R.  Jesus is with us today. God created our brother. Jesus died for our brother. Jesus remains with us truly present in the Tabernacle. Jesus is here in this room, the same Jesus that they tied to the pillar, that they whipped, that His blood ran over His body! See Him tied to the pillar! Do we realize that the Son of God, Jesus Christ, is in this room in the Tabernacle and remains here out of greatest love for each one of us. Jesus wants us to open up our hearts more and more to the realization of His presence. He is truly present in the Tabernacle. 

9.  R.  The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit dwell in us in a special way when we are baptized and in the state of grace. We are not alone.

10.  R.  Such love He has for us that He stood and suffered the beatings at the pillar. But His love is burning at every second as we breathe and as our hearts beat. His love is a roaring furnace. These are just words to describe the love that He has for us; there really are no words to describe this love. As we breathe, whether we think about Jesus or not, He loves us with this burning love!

Song between decades:  A Song from Jesus

 

Jesus is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

1.  R.  Do we realize, even minutely, the love that Jesus had that He suffered, truly suffered, as we meditate on His Passion!

2.  R.  Dear Holy Spirit, open up our eyes. Help us to see more and more with your vision.

3.  R.  We see our brother! We see the Tabernacle! Do we realize that Jesus is truly present, the Son of God, in the Tabernacle? We see so little in front of our face. We see those things with our eyes that are visible. But do we realize that this is His world? The reality is that our every breath is dependent upon Him. Dear Holy Spirit give us vision to see more and more insight into your hidden Mysteries. Give us Your grace to help us grow in greater love and knowledge of You. Fill our hearts so that we may be drawn ever closer through this Passion to the Most Sacred, Burning Heart of Jesus!

4.  R.  Jesus was covered with wounds from His head to His feet. They pounded on His head a sharp crown of piercing thorns. Think of how it is to have a little splinter in your finger, but the thorns punctured His head all the way around!

5.  R.  Holes all the way around His head! The blood ran down His face into His eyes and into His ears. On top of His wounds, they covered Him with a cloak that stuck to His wounds. They gave to Him a scepter and said: "Hail King!" Jesus sat silently. The King of all Kings! The Son of God! God, The Father, Who sent His only begotten Son into this world out of greatest love for each of us. Jesus, God made man! God became a man. He loves each one of us so much. Jesus was spit on! Jesus was mocked! Jesus was hit! He calls out to us to love our brothers.

6.  R.  Jesus came to show us how to love. When they persecuted Him, when they hit Him, He loved those men who treated Him so cruelly. He came to show us the way, the way to love. Today He asks us to spread His love throughout the world, to become His soldiers, to give to this world His burning love!

7.  R.  Jesus asks so little of us, but He gave so much for us!

8.  R.  With such anger and hatred in their hearts, they crowned Jesus with a crown of thorns. Can you think of doing that to another human? Pounding thorns into their head!

9.  R.  Jesus suffered such terrible treatment. Jesus loved those who did this to Him. Think of how it is when someone you love treats you with such cruelty. Jesus came to show us the way. Despite all that they did to Him, He always loved. He is love! His way is love! If we are to be likened to Him, if we are to be more like God, we must forgive and love!

10.  R.  Jesus greatest agonies were not the agonies that He suffered from His physical wounds but the agonies that He suffered to His Heart, for the hot and cold souls, and for all the souls that do not think of Him this day. As He suffered for these souls, He was comforted during His Passion by the love that we show to Him this day.

Jesus Carries His Cross

1.  Sing song:  Your Presence Pervades My Soul

R.    Open your heart! Let Jesus penetrate every inch of your soul!

2.  R.    Possess our soul! Permeate our being! Fill us! Fill us with Your love that we may go out into this world and spread this love in the dark corners. Let Your light shine through us in this world to light up the dark corners. Help us to be soldiers of Your Love. Fill our hearts with Your grace and Your love. Come to us Holy Spirit and transform us from fear to fearlessness. Help us to see. Jesus carried His cross on His back out of greatest love for each one of us. He held His cross tightly. He carried it and He did not give it up. He collapsed because the weight was so heavy on His back. Can we not answer the call that He calls out to us tonight to be strong soldiers and to march into this world to spread His light and His love as He provides us with His love, His strength?

3.  R.    Jesus stood with His hands tied and the men that were by Him, with such hatred and anger on their faces, poked at Jesus with spears. Jesus, had a look of perfect peace on His face while they poked at Him because He knew the Father's love. Help us to know more and more the Father's love for us. Jesus lead us ever closer to Your Father as we grow in greater likeness of You. Holy Spirit transform us into this likeness so that we can be closer to the Father.

4.  R.    Jesus carried His cross. It was so heavy that He could hardly carry it! His Mother stood by and she watched! Mary watched her beloved Son that she once carried, that she once cared for. A mother in every way! She loved her Son so dearly but could not reach out, could not help Him! Her heart was torn so deeply within her chest to see Him covered with blood, with His cross on His back. She calls out to us this day: As I saw my Son suffer for love of you, can you not spread this love throughout the world?

5.  R.    Their eyes peered into each other's eyes! The Son into His Mother's eyes! Mary's face reddened with tears. She was weak from all her crying. She had endured such mental anguish watching this horrid course of events her Son had undergone, and now Jesus looked into the eyes of His Mother as she suffers. She looks into His eyes and sees Him covered with blood and with a crown of piercing thorns on His head and a heavy cross on His back. In that look is depth of love between their two Hearts!

6.  Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

7.  Song:  Little Baby Hands and Feet

8.  R.    See through the eyes of Mary as she looks at Jesus and see her this day as she comes to tell us to look through her eyes and see her Son as He suffered for each one of us. He loved us so much that He gave His all! 

9.  R.    Can you refuse Mary's call this day as she calls out to you to be a special apostle to spread Jesus' love throughout this world? Mary asks you to live your life and be an apostle to His Most Sacred Heart. Mary is forever by your side she will lead you on your way, will guard you, will protect you in her Immaculate Heart and will take you ever closer to the inner recesses of His Most Sacred Heart. She begs you and asks you to please see the souls that Jesus loved so dearly. See the souls that will be lost for not hearing of His love. The little things that seem so small that you do to spread His love can be things that really help.

10.  R.    If He suffered as He did all through the Passion for love of each one of us, how can we say no to His Mother and our Mother when she asks us this day to please answer her call to be an apostle to spread the love of His Heart throughout this world?

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1.  R.    Mary held His little hands and His little feet as a child and now she sees as they pound His hands and feet into the cross!

2.  Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

3.  R.    There are no words to describe the pain and anguish to Mary's heart as she stood under the cross and watched her Son as He hung for three agonizing hours to His death! The pain was so immense, though she did not have any wounds!

4.  R.    Jesus gave His flesh! Jesus gave His blood! They punctured Jesus' head! They put nails into Jesus' hands, into His feet! Jesus gave His all - all the blood inside of His body!

5.  R.    Dear Holy Spirit, please open up our eyes to see more and more the mystery of the Incarnation.

6.  R.    As Jesus gave Himself on the cross, He gives Himself to us this day in the Eucharist and we take it so lightly. Jesus is truly God!

7.  R.    If God would remove the veil from the Tabernacle, we would see such radiance. Jesus is truly God and He is in this room with us this day with such love and longing for us to be ever closer to Him. Realize that Jesus died on the cross for greatest love of us!

8.  Song:  Lord let me Walk

9.  R.    They gave to Mary His lifeless body! As Mary held the child Jesus in her arms with such tender loving care, she received His body. He was lifeless! Jesus had not a breath in His body. Mary's tears drip on His body weak and pale, covered with blood and wounds!

10.  Song:  At the Cross her Station keeping

The Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary

  

 

1.  The Prophecy of Simeon.   R.  Mary and Joseph took the child Jesus to the Temple and they were met by the prophet Simeon. He was an old man and the Holy Spirit told him that before He died, he would see the Messiah. The Holy Spirit led him into the Temple and he saw the child Jesus and held Him in his arms. He said that now he was ready to die. Then he told Mary and Joseph of the sufferings that would befall Jesus and Mary. From that point on whenever Mary looked at her beloved child, she remembered the prophecy of Simeon when she saw Him at play, when she clothed Him, when she saw Him all through His life! Her heart was pierced with a sword to know of the immense sufferings that were to come. A sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

    

 2.  The Flight into Egypt.   R.  Joseph and Mary were forced to flee in the night to Egypt with the child Jesus.

 

 3.  Jesus was lost in the Temple.   R.  When Jesus was twelve years old, He was taken up to the Temple for the feast of the Passover. When it was over Joseph and Mary left with the caravan and left Jesus behind. With their hearts in such sorrowing, they returned to the temple in search of the child Jesus. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

 

 4.  Jesus and Mary meet on the Way to the Cross.   R.  Their eyes peer into one another's eyes on Calvary. In that peering look is such intimacy between the two Hearts. Her heart was pierced with an invisible sword! His Heart was pierced with a lance! Such love! They suffered for love of us! A sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

    

 5.  Jesus Died on the Cross and Mary stands beneath the cross.   Jesus:  I call out to you to be soldiers to spread the love that I have for you to this world for I truly gave My life for you! Will you answer this call? See My Mother as she stood under the cross. Her face with tears, with such love for you! This is your Mother! She calls to you. I call to you to be soldiers of My love to a world that is in such pain and that is hurting! One soldier fixed to the love of God can move a mountain! Will you be the soldier that answers My call? As I pour out to you such abundant grace, as I fill you with fearlessness to march on this world in which many do not believe in God. I cry out to you this day from the depths of My Sacred Heart to go into battle with your hearts filled with My love. I love you so dearly that I died for you. Can you not do this for Me?

 

 6.  Mary under the Cross received the lifeless Body of her Son.   R.  She had suffered so much agony all through the Passion. Now she stood under the cross held up by her beloved John. Now the final curtain! She is handed the lifeless body of her beloved Son in her arms as she held the child Jesus when Simeon said to her — and a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary! The final curtain was that she held His lifeless, limp body covered with blood and she calls out to you this day to spread the love of her Son throughout this world. You are truly being called as soldiers going into battle filled with the might of the Almighty God. She is counting on you. You were called here this evening. Called by me, called by Jesus to hear this plea. This world is in such pain. This world has forgotten God. Souls will be lost. Do not turn the other way but realize that the knowledge about the love of God you spread to the world today is so important. Souls will eventually go to Heaven or to hell. Spread these revelations. God is giving such strength and such grace to answer this call. Can you say no? See Mary as she held the lifeless body of her Son in her arms. See her face reddened with tears, ridges from the deep crying. No words can express the anguish that she suffered to her heart.

  

 7.  Jesus is Locked in the Tomb.   R.  The cold reality that He is now dead! Mary weeps outside. But death has no power over Jesus for on the third day Jesus rose to bring us new life!! A sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary.

Song:  I Love You Jesus

Song:  Come Holy Spirit

R.  The Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles and transformed them from fear into fearlessness, come to us O Holy Spirit fill us with Your grace. Fill us with the fire of Your love so that we may know God's burning love and carry this fire, this vibrancy of God's love to a hurting world. Help us spread the Gospel message that Jesus has died, He is risen and that He loves this world this day! Help us to be loving. Help us to be one in You.

Galatians 2: 19-20

I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me. The life that I am now living, subject to the limitation of human nature, I am living in faith, faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me.

R.  Work in us O God!

This rosary was prayed before Jesus in the Tabernacle in the Holy Spirit Chapel. Rita, Joe, Cathy, Marty and 6 people who came from the Dayton, Ohio area.

I Am with You

R.  Today there is so much snow, I couldn't go to the center.

Jesus:  I am with you. Let go and surrender. If satan can try to dominate your thoughts he will do so. You cannot go to the tabernacle this morning. Just be with Me. The weather is very bad. I want you alone with Me. Make a spiritual communion. I will come to you.

Glorious Mysteries

The Resurrection

1.  R.  On the third day, Jesus rose from the dead. Death has no power over Him! After being locked in the tomb for three days, He rose triumphantly!

2.  From The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, by Louis J. Puhl, S.J.  p. 132

299. THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST OUR
        LORD
THE FIRST APPARITION

FIRST POINT. He appeared to the Virgin Mary.
Though this is not mentioned explicitly in the Scripture
it must be considered as stated when Scripture says
that He appeared to many others. For Scripture supposes
that we have understanding, as it is written, "Are
you also without understanding?"

R.  Imagine the joy of His Mother to see Him in His glorified body. She, who had wept outside His tomb only three days before with the cold reality of His death.

3.  R.  There is such connection between Jesus and Mary and Their love for one another.

4.  R.  Jesus died that He could give us new life and that we would receive this life in such abundance. Out of greatest love for us, the Father sent His only begotten Son into the world to suffer for love of us. Now He rises on the third day to give us new life!

5.  R.  Jesus has paid the price for Adam's sin.

6.  R.  Jesus gave to the apostles the power to baptize and forgive sins.

7.  R.  Our human nature is elevated through Baptism! We receive a special sharing in His life.

8.  From the pierced Heart of Jesus the Church was born.

9.  R.  Who are we that God gives us the sacraments in such goodness so that we can live with Him for ever and ever in Heaven!

10.  R.  Jesus gives to us the Sacrament of Holy Orders whereby He gives us the specially anointed priest-sons so that they can change Bread and Wine into His Body and Blood.

The Ascension

1. 

Then he took them out as far as the outskirts of Bethany, and raising his hands he blessed them.   Luke 24: 50

Peace I bequeath to you, my own peace I give you, a peace which the world cannot give, this is my gift to you.   John 14: 27

2.  R.  Jesus raised His arms and ascended into Heaven. The apostles, as they looked from below, were in such awe! A cloud took Him out of sight!

3.  R.  These are the Glorious Mysteries! That Jesus Christ rose triumphant from the dead. That Jesus ascended into Heaven!

4.  R.   The priest can change bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, no less present than the day He walked the earth!

5.  R.  The servant usually goes to the Master, but Jesus Christ, out of greatest love for us, comes to us in the sacrament of the Eucharist. The Master comes to the servant!

6.  R.  Jesus calls us His brothers!

7.  R.  Jesus gives us, out of His goodness, His Body and Blood to nourish our life. He gives us the sacrament of Penance to take away our sins. He gives us such gifts out of His goodness!

8.  R.  Jesus loves us with such immense love! To ponder His goodness is to make us in awe of the God that comes to us and makes His home in our hearts in such union when we receive Him in the Eucharist!

9.  R.  Who are we that the good God loves us so?

10.  R.  Jesus is all good and all loving and He gives to us out of His bounty!

The Descent of the Holy Spirit

1.  Song: God is so Good, God is so Good, God is so Good, Oh so Good to us!

2.  R.  Jesus gives to us the sacrament of Confirmation whereby we become soldiers of God through the power of the Holy Spirit. Confirmation is a sacrament.

3.  R.  There appeared a gigantic-like wind and over their heads were parted tongues of fire!

4.  R.   The apostles and the Virgin Mary were in the upper room. The apostles had been filled with such fear that they locked themselves there. Now the Holy Spirit descended upon them and they were filled with the fire of His love!

5.  R.  They were transformed from fear to fearlessness and went out to preach the Gospel and all understood!

6.  R.  Dear Holy Spirit, Your power is so immense! Fill us with the fire of God's love! Let it be ever present and vibrant within us so that we, too,  may go out and preach the Gospel to this world that is hurting!

7.  R.  We are called to Confirmation to be strong soldiers in God's army!

8.  R.  Holy Spirit, lead us more and more to the image of Jesus! Transform our hearts that we may be more likened to Him!

9.  R.  Through the powerful intercession of the Virgin Mary, transform us to be more and more like Jesus so that we can be led closer to Our dear Father!

10.  R.   Jesus showed us the peace that He had all through His life. He knew the love of the Father. Please, dear Father, help us to know more this immense love that You have for each one of us and to realize Your Plan. Help us to do Your Will so that in doing Your Will, we will be happier in this world and please you doing Your plan.

The Assumption

1.  R.  Mary was on the earth some time after Jesus ascended into Heaven.

2.  R.  Can we imagine, even a little bit, what Heaven is like? Mary, in all her glory after all her suffering, is now taken into Heaven body and soul.

3.  R.  How glorious is our Beautiful Mother! How glorious that she loves us so much!

4.  R.  Mary, we are so blind! Our hearts are not so soft! Make our hearts more tender so that we can more and more realize the love that you and Jesus have for each one of us!

5.  R.  You, Beloved Mary, you are the Queen of Queens! You are the Mother of God!

6.  Song:  O Holy Mary

7.  R.  Help us, Mother, to be more and more like you, our model, and like Jesus, your Beloved Son!

8.  R.  Holy Spirit, transform us into the image of Jesus in the Immaculate Heart of the Virgin Mary!

9.  R.  We love you so much, Mary!

10.  Song:  Immaculate Mary

Song between decades:  Come Holy Spirit

      

The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth

1.  R.  The Hearts of Jesus and Mary! The Hearts that overflow with such abundant love for each and every precious soul! The hearts that were wounded because of their love! The heart of Mary that was pierced with a sword! The Heart of Jesus that was pierced with a lance.

2.  R.  Now, Mary our Mother, was crowned Queen of Heaven and earth!

3.  Song:  Hail Holy Queen

4.  R.  How God is such a good God that He has given us so much good things and He gives to us His Beloved Mother who is the Queen of Heaven!

5.  R.  We pray through Her intercession that we may be drawn ever closer in love with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit!

6.  R.  Dear Mary, place us so tenderly in the Heart of the child Jesus. You held Jesus in your arms and presented Him to the Father in the Temple. Place us in the Heart of Jesus that we can go to the Father!

7.  R.  How the Father loves His Most Precious Son!

8.  R.  We will, someday, be united in such deep union with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit!

The Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary

  

 

1.  The Prophecy of Simeon.   R.  When Jesus was taken to the Temple by Mary and Joseph, the prophet Simeon told Mary of the sufferings that were to come. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

    

 2.  The Flight into Egypt.   R.  Joseph was told by an angel to take Jesus and flee into Egypt. In the night, Joseph, Mary and Jesus went to Egypt. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

 

 3.  Jesus was lost in the Temple.   R.  Think of the sorrowing in the hearts of Joseph and Mary as they search for the child Jesus! And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

 

 4.  Jesus and Mary meet on the Way to the Cross.   R.  Their eyes peered into one another's eyes and Mary's heart with such sorrow, saw her Son whom she held as a little baby now battered, bruised and bloodied, carrying His heavy cross. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

    

 5.  The Crucifixion.   R.  Mary watched her Son hang to His death. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

The rosary was prayed before the statue of Our Lady of Sorrows. Rita, Cathy, Joe and Marty were present!

Mary appeared throughout the rosary. Mary looked sorrowful. Also that Mary's head moved several times — couldn't see it actually move, but saw her head in a different position after it moved! I smelled roses.

 

February 5, 1995 - Sunday

My Cry is for Souls

R.  My heart was so upset yesterday, I am so frustrated, Jesus tells me things, Jesus talks from my mouth, people do not have time to listen.

    Immense pain in front of the tabernacle Saturday morning 6:45 a.m., So frustrated, so much pain.

    Today went to tabernacle, so much pain, wanted to be one with Him so bad, immense heart ache beyond words, so deep, then my heart slipped into His Heart and I rested in His Heart for one hour and thirty minutes, I did not want it to end.

    I still feel intense frustration, to talk to Him and Mary all day and people do not have time to listen.

R.  Time is so short. He wants to be obeyed. Mary’s messages during the rosary are so important. My frustration is that they are being overlooked. I saw her head moving last night. She was illuminated for over one and one-half hours. Her face also had movement. At the end of the Seven Sorrows we blew out the candles and Jesus’ picture illuminated as those lights that glow in the dark. Especially around His Heart, the ends of the picture and His head.

    He moved His mouth. He wanted the litany said.

February 5, 2001

Jesus:  My children of this world do not listen to Me. I come, Mary comes, people are too busy with their lives. I, in My might, will rock this earth. I tell you, I want these messages published. You think your world needs what you are doing? Your world needs these meditations on My life and that of My Mother’s. Men’s hearts will turn to the love of God through these meditations.

    I will rock this earth. You tarry too much. I want the Blue Books published and circulated. I have spoken, I have spoken, I have begged, I have pleaded. I can in a moment take your breath from you. I have asked and pleaded. You worry for details. You do things your own way. I want the Blue Book published and given away. You do not listen because you do your own will.

    I am Jesus Christ, I am God. I speak to you. You have time for other things and not for My messages. I am talking to you. I am calling out. I have called, I have called, I have knocked down the walls — you do not comprehend that I am talking to you here. You do not listen. You do not have time to read these messages. I want this work accomplished. I will see that My work is accomplished. These messages need to be published. I am calling out an urgent alert. I will rock this earth and you will know My might. You will know I speak here. You, in your busy lives, play your games with Me. I am telling you that My patience is wearing thin. To press on My messenger is not opening your hearts. I am dealing with you. These are My messages to you. Ignore Me and you will suffer. How do I tell you — you ignore My letters! You do not have time to read them. You do not pay heed to the rosary messages. These messages are so important to My Church.

    Play your games, souls will be lost. You hold the mighty medicine to turn souls to My burning love. You take this so lightly. I can rock this earth. For one month before the earthquake I told you that the earth would crack — you do not listen. I want the January 19th message published separately.

    I am Jesus Christ. I have spoken. I am ignored. Mary is appearing as Our Lady of Light each day and I am giving you messages for this world. I beg you to take Me seriously. Your delays are unnecessary. You will suffer. You are suffering at the Center now for not publishing the Third Blue Book that I started in March, 1994. If these messages do not circulate, your workers will remain divided until they do — you ignored My words. Your problem would be resolved if you read these letters. All the answers are in these letters. I will rock this earth. Since the middle of December I have been pressing down in My message — no one pays Me heed.

    If you do not read the letters, how do I get your attention? You are too busy. I want these letters circulated, I want the letters published, I want the letters read. I will rock this earth. I do not get any response from you. What do I do to shake you? I can knock down the walls, I can rock the earth. I ask you gently to take Me seriously. I am Jesus. My cry is for the souls that are hungry for My love. I am pouring out My love to them and you are holding up My messages, My Mother’s meditations — you have put these letters off. Satan is doing everything to stop their publication. These are the letters that will turn men’s hearts to the power of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Christ.

    I have been patient. I have waited. The big boom was March 22, 1994 — for one month I begged, I pleaded, I told you I would rock the earth. I can remove your blocks. I want these letters to be published and circulated. I am God. I am speaking here. I am Jesus. I am speaking here. My Mother is speaking here. We are being ignored and put off. Your city will shine with the light of My love when you circulate these letters.

    The power is in the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. I beg you to listen to Me. I am God. I want these messages heeded. I want them supported. I want them to circulate and be published. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I beg you to listen to Me. I want My messenger to speak. I am using her as a tool to give My message to this world. I want this message out. I will get it out. It is My message for the world. I ask gently, you delay, you worry for details, you do not obey. Time is so short. People need these messages. The power is in prayer. The power of prayer, fixed to the burning Heart of Jesus, is so powerful. I want union with souls. You will not let go and come to My tabernacle and sit after Communion. You cannot do this job without My power. I have spoken. You need to pray fervently to the Holy Spirit. I beg you to listen. I beg, I beg, I beg. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. These are My messages of love for this world!

Love and Pray for Your Brothers

Sorrowful Mysteries

       The Agony in the Garden

1.  R.  We are here on this earth to do the work that the Father has planned for us. He calls out to us to be His apostles to spread His love throughout this world, to love God and to love one another.

2.  R.  Jesus came to show us the way. He was born in a stable in such poverty.

3.  R.  From the prophecy of Simeon, Mary knew of the sufferings that Jesus and she would undergo. Now Jesus kneels in the garden and He sees before Him all the sufferings that He would experience through His entire Passion. In vivid detail, He knew every single blow, every thorn, every single insult and slander, the gashes in His body, and He saw this with such clarity in the garden.

4.  The Cross Leads to Life

Jesus: "My beloved priest-companion, tell My people that they must keep the lesson of the cross fresh in their consciousness. Remind them that I am the Christ of the Cross as well as the Christ of the Resurrection. I suffered tremendously on My way to death on the cross. My sacred flesh was so cruelly lacerated by the scourging. My sacred head was so cruelly and mockingly crowned with thorns. I was spat upon and made fun of. Exhausted by terrible suffering, I still had to carry the heavy cross to Calvary. There My sacred hands and feet were mercilessly pierced with nails. Oh, what pain this caused Me!

"I suffered all this most willingly—out of love for My Father and for all My people! Through My cross, through My suffering, I obtained new life for My people. Through My cruel and brutal death, I achieved Resurrection for Myself and all My people. My suffering was not an end in itself. It was a necessary passageway to obtain the life I came to give.

"My people must share in My cross, so that they may share more and more in My life. Remind My people, My dear friend, that suffering, when embraced according to My Father's will, leads to greater life here and hereafter. The cross, properly carried, always leads to a greater share in My Resurrection.

"Tell My people that the more they are united with Me in love, the easier is the carrying of the cross. The more one dwells in Me, the more I help that person to carry the cross. In this way, even the heaviest cross becomes relatively light.

"Carrying the cross does not mean to be in misery. Carrying one's cross in union with Me always allows a person to remain in peace. The cross does not take away peace and joy. Despite the pain involved, the cross gives increased peace and joy. I am Lord and Master. I eagerly desire that all listen to My words and live them!

"My people, come each day to My Heart and I will give you the light and strength to carry your cross according to Father's will! I love My people with an overwhelming love, and in this great love I give them this message."

Reflection: One does not have to reflect on the human condition for very long to be reminded of how much suffering exists in all parts of the world. And yet, the great tragedy concerning human suffering is not that there is so much of it, but rather that so much of it is apparently wasted. In God's plan, suffering is meant to lead to greater life, a greater share in Christ's Resurrection here and hereafter. Suffering does just that, if we relate to it according to God's will. To the extent we don't relate to the cross as God's will would have us, we miss the opportunity for suffering to be growth-promoting.

Jesus tells us about the cross and its linkage to life in the Gospel: "Then to all he said: 'If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself and take up his cross everyday and follow me. For anyone who wants to save his life will lose it; but anyone who loses his life for my sake, that man will save it'" (Luke 9:23-24).

And St. Paul tells us: "We are in difficulties on all sides, but never cornered; we see no answer to our problems, but never despair; we have been persecuted, but never deserted; knocked down, but never killed; always, wherever we may be, we carry with us in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus, too, may always be seen in our body" (2 Corinthians 4:8-10).  From Tell My People

5.  R.  How many times do we see before our eyes that the road to Him is not the road that we want to take. But it is the road that He calls us to. In compliance to the Father's Will, He said

Abba,  Father!’ he said, ‘For you everything is possible. Take this cup away from me. But let it be as you, not I, would have it.’  Mark 14: 36

6.  R.  Jesus, in His Divinity and humanity, is in this room with us. The invisible reality is that He truly is here, the same as the day He knelt in the garden! Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is in this room with us at this very moment!

7.  R.  And how can we not be changed through His presence when we are truly in the presence of the Almighty God?

8.  R.  If we could see Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who is truly present here, we scarce could stand it. He is truly here in His Divinity and humanity even though we are not seeing Him!

9.  R.  And the love that you spread this day will make the difference to this hurting world. For He calls out to us to be His soldiers in this world to spread this love. When we look around and the world does not seem like it is thinking about God, He says: "I am truly here with you. The words that I speak to you are these words: I want you to be My soldiers, to carry My light to this world, to spread My love in the dark corners, and to answer the call that I give to you today! Keep your focus on Me always!"

10.  Mary:  Many men in their willfulness has put aside the things of God! Even though man may have forgotten God, God has not forgotten man!

Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar

1.  Jesus:  They beat My flesh! They tore My skin! I bled My blood for you!

2.  Jesus:  Do you look to the world when I call? Look to Me! See Me as I stand at the pillar! See them as they whip Me with such hatred and anger in their hearts! Your world has turned hard and many hearts of men have forgotten God. I call out to you this day to answer My plea to come to My Tabernacle, to spend your time in prayer, to realize that the closer you are in union with Me, the more powerful your prayers. This is your calling today to join yourself in union with Me ever closer and closer to My Most Burning Heart!

3.  Jesus:  I speak to you this day. I am here with you. Will you open your ears and listen to My plea to focus on Me?

4.  Jesus:  I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God! I call out to each one of you that are present to answer My call. Take Me seriously! The love that you spread to this world today will be the love that makes a difference to a hurting soul!

5.  Jesus:  To look at the world, you think that maybe you do not have to spend so much time with Me. I am telling you this day, I am calling you to take your relationship with Me ever more seriously than you did in the past. I truly want soldiers that are so steadfast in My love, that are united with Me, that live to be ever closer to God: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit!

6.  Jesus:  Do you think that I would not come and talk to you? Why would I die on the cross for My beloved souls and then not come to you this day and plead with you to turn your hearts to the love of God, to be My mighty warriors, to spread My love to this hurting world?

7.  Jesus:  I come to you, My chosen ones this day! Listen to Me so ardently!

8.  R.   See Jesus at the pillar and hear as they give Him blows with such hatred and anger in their hearts that it tore His precious skin! Hear the blows that He received and know that He suffered these blows. This is the reality! He suffered them for our brothers. Our brothers are hurting and in pain. It is only through our prayers and our dedication to Jesus that we will carry His message throughout this world. He calls out to us this day to listen to Him. He is truly talking here! He wants you to be joined ever closer to His Most Sacred Burning Heart!

9.  R.  As He walked away, the earth was marked with His bloody footprints! Do we walk away when He calls us so strongly or do we keep our focus on Him? The power is in the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Christ! The Almighty God is truly present and with us in this room!

10.  Song:  Come unto Me all who are weary and find rest for your soul. Come unto Me, all who are burdened, I will comfort you!

Jesus is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

1.  R.  They pounded into His Most Precious Head a crown of piercing thorns!

2.  R.  Jesus is our Mediator with the Father.

3.  R.  Jesus now sits on the throne that they gave to Him. They clothed Him in a dirty purple robe that covered His bleeding wounds. They crowned Him with a crown of piercing thorns and gave Him a scepter to hold. Then they spat on Him, scoffed at Him and mocked Him as King of the Jews. This is the King of Kings! The Son of God! The Master comes to the servant! But He does not call us slaves. He calls us His brothers. We are truly brothers in God!

 Jesus:  How can you not love your brothers when My Father created Him? How can you look at your brother with such hatred and anger?

5.  Jesus:  I am calling you today to prayer. To offer your every action to the Father in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for love of your brothers! Give you daily life as an intention in prayer! This world is hurting and needs your prayers! I call to you today to take this plea seriously!

6.  Jesus:  See Me with the blood as it came down My face and into My eyes and My ears! As I looked at your world I saw through a film of blood! Do you know how much I love you? I loved you to My death on the cross! I love your brothers this much. Can you not help him in this world today? I call you to prayer. I call you to be apostles to spread My love throughout this world. The Father has a plan for you. Will you say Yes?

7.  Jesus:  Spread My love to the hurting souls. It is in your touch and it is in your glance that I touch the souls that are close to you!

8.  Jesus:  See beyond what is visible. See the reality of the invisible world! I control your every breath! Life is but a passing moment! The dropping of a pin! The batting of an eye! Then your life is over! What lives on is how you loved God and loved one another!

9.  Jesus:  They crowned Me with a piercing crown of thorns! They pounded into My skull! The thorns went into the inside of My body! I gave My all for love!

10.  Song:  Crown Him with Many Crowns

Jesus Carries His Cross Up Calvary

1.  R.  They stood around Jesus with their angry and hateful faces! Anger welled up in their hearts! They poked at Him with spears! Jesus, was in total peace, His hands tied in front of Him, always knowing the love of His Father. The Father loves each one of us with such intense love. We are His creation. He loves what He creates! He calls out to us to be ever closer — closer to the love of God!

2.  Jesus:  Come unto Me you weary souls. You wander and you search and you try to do what you can to please Me and you look at the world and then you want to run back. Focus on Me! Follow Me! I am calling you this day to take My messages seriously! Time is so short! You must pray! You must do what the Father wills you to do! It is so important to My plan! Each person has their part to play in this plan. I am calling each of you here to open your hearts, to listen with your hearts to what you are being told is your part in the plan.

3.  Jesus:  I carried the heavy cross on My back. I carried it for greatest love of you! I ask you to carry your crosses. I ask you to do what the Father is asking you to do. I ask you to lead souls ever closer to the burning love of My Heart!

4.  R.  Jesus came to show us the way. Jesus came to teach us how to love. He left His Word with us to nourish us and He left His Body and Blood, that He gives to us this day, to feed our life.

5.  Jesus:  Come unto Me all who are weary and find rest for your soul for I am truly the Almighty God! I have all the power! You must come to Me and realize that I am truly present and with you this day! No one has any power over Me! I walk beside you on your way! I lead you down the roads the Father has planned for you! Come unto Me all who are weary and find rest for your soul. For peace lies in doing the Father's Will! Your joy will come from the heart that is one with God!

6.  Jesus:  As I surrendered to the Will of the Father, I ask you to surrender this day. Consecrate your hearts to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Pray to the Spirit to fill you with life and vibrancy, to lead you on your way to your union with God!

7.  Jesus:  And I fell under My cross, but I got up again and carried My cross on My back. For greatest love of you, I carried the cross on My back!

8.  Song:  Lord let me walk that lonesome road with You

9.  R.  Our Blessed Lady walked forever by His side on Calvary as she walks by our side every day. She never leaves us. She is the Most Loving Mother. She is there. She wants to help us on our way, and help us to lead souls ever closer to the burning Heart of her Son, Jesus Christ!

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1.  R.  As Mary held the child Jesus in her arms, as she saw His little hands and feet. She now watches as they pound the hands and feet of her beloved Son into the cross!

Sing:  Little Baby Hands and Feet

2.  Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

3.  R.  What of this tender little Heart that now beats as Jesus hangs from the cross!

4.  R.  Such love in His Heart! He, God, came to this earth and was made man and gave His flesh and His blood for love of us!

5.  R.  Stand with Mary under the cross! See Jesus against the darkened sky as He hangs in such weakness! Wounded! His whole body covered with bloody wounds. A crown of thorns on His head! The blood comes from His mouth from the blows they have given Him to His head! How can we say no or take this so lightly when He, God, came to this earth and hung on the cross to His death because He loves us and loves our brothers so much!

6.  R.  He calls out and says that He gave His life for us. What more do we want? He truly gave His life! This day He nourishes the life that He has given us in Baptism through His very Body and Blood in the Eucharist. He is here this day! God! God is in our midst! We do not realize the great gift that we have. The soul craves this love of God and it is only the love of God that satisfies the stalking soul. Jesus, open our eyes to see more and more with Godly vision so we can grow ever closer in our union with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Spirit, open our eyes! Where we are now blind, let us see! See beyond the bread we eat that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, has died. He is risen and He remains with us this day in the Eucharist!

Sing:  I am the Bread of Life

7.  R.  We see those things visible to our eyes! What we need to see are those things that are invisible to our eyes! See that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is truly in the Consecrated Host. See that Jesus dwells within our brother! See the Father's creation! See them as so precious and so special to the Father that He sent His only Son into the world that the souls may be saved and inherit eternal salvation!

8.  R.  Jesus called out from the cross: My God! My God! Why have You forsaken Me? He calls out to us this day!

9.  R.  See Him as He hangs to His death! Jesus gave the last beat of His Heart! The last drop of His blood! Jesus' Heart was pierced and what flowed out were blood and water. Water for baptism, Blood for the Eucharist with which He feeds us. Through the pierced Heart of Jesus, the sacramental life of the Church was formed. The Church is so important to us. Help us to realize more and more that this is Christ's Church. We are one body! We are members of this body!

10.  R.  Jesus calls us to prayer! Prayer for all the members of the Church! For the suffering souls in purgatory! For our brothers that are living with us this day throughout the world! Jesus calls us to realize that we are brothers in Christ. It is our duty, as He gave His life for us, to love likened to Christ. It is our duty to give our life through prayer for our brother!

Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary

1.  The Prophecy of Simeon.  R.  Jesus, Mary and Joseph go to the Temple to present the child Jesus. Simeon, who was told by the Holy Spirit that before he died he would see the Messiah, is now led into the Temple and meets Jesus, Mary and Joseph. He holds the child Jesus and says now that he is ready for his death. He tells Mary of the sufferings that she and Jesus will suffer. From this point on, every time Mary beheld the child Jesus, every time she looked at Him, she knew of the immense sufferings that He would suffer. Her heart was pierced each time she looked at her Son, for she always knew that He would suffer such brutality! And a sword, too, will pierce your heart, O Mary.

2.  The Flight into Egypt.   R.  Joseph and Mary are forced to flee to Egypt with the child Jesus. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

3.  The Loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple.  R.  Joseph and Mary took the child Jesus to the Temple when He was twelve years old. When they left with the caravan, they did not realize that Jesus had been left behind. After traveling a day's journey, they realized that the child Jesus was still in Jerusalem. With such sorrow in their hearts, they returned to Jerusalem to find the child Jesus. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

4.  Jesus and Mary Meet on the Way to the Cross.  R.  How Jesus and Mary suffered for us because They love us so much. She did not bear the wounds as Jesus did on her body, but to her heart! The tremendous sufferings she endured. We cannot even imagine what she suffered! As her eyes peered into the eyes of Jesus, she saw Jesus from His childhood all through His life. Feel Mary's heart and the immense love that she has for her Son and watch her look into His eyes and see the blood that runs down His face as He carries the cross on His back! He looks into her eyes and He sees His beloved Mother that He loves so much with her reddened face and tears. No tears that Mary ever shed could express the sorrow that was so deep in her heart. She asks us to look at her Son and all He suffered for love of us, and to see through her eyes the love that He has for us. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

Song:  I Love You Jesus

5.  Jesus Dies on the Cross.  R.  Jesus was on the cross and Mary stood below the cross.

Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

R.  Jesus promises us that those who love and serve the Lord will have a reward of unending celestial happiness with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit forever and ever and ever in Heaven.

6.  Jesus is Taken Down from the Cross and Laid in Mary's Arms.  R.  See Mary as she enters the Temple with Joseph and the child Jesus in her arms. Simeon says to her that a sword, too, will pierce your heart, O Mary. See her as she holds the child Jesus horizontally in her arms. Such a precious love between Mary and her infant. The words of Simeon were so cold to her ears but so true as she, under the cross, holds her Son horizontally in her arms. He is covered with blood. His body is limp. Without a breath to His body, she now knows Simeon's prophecy has been fulfilled. She holds the lifeless body of Jesus in her arms. The love that the Father has for us that He truly gave His only Son for love of us! The love that Mary has! Visualize that picture in your mind! The love of Mary! The love of Jesus! The love of the Two Hearts! His Heart was pierced with a lance. Her Heart was pierced with a sword. With all love there is suffering. How these Two suffered for love of us! And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary.

7.  The Burial of Jesus.  R.  And they locked Jesus' body in a tomb! But death has no power over Jesus! For in three days, He rose triumphant from the dead. Mary, who now weeps outside the tomb, knows the cold reality that her Son is dead! But she will see Him again when He rises from the dead!

 

This rosary was prayed before Jesus in the Tabernacle in the Holy Spirit Chapel. Rita, Cathy, Joe, Harold and Diane Kellner, Diane's parents, Sr. Rita and Marty were present.

   

February 6, 1995 - After Fr. Carter's Mass

His Arms Were Spread for Me

R.  Saw Jesus hanging from the cross after Fr. Carter's Mass in chapel praying before tabernacle.

    Saw His head down —
    Arms outspread
    Head was level with His arms.

    Same face as when I saw it covered with blood.

    Same face as when I saw His mouth open, blood coming from His mouth.

        Arms were level with His head.

    Mary had before her always the prophecy of Simeon.

    See Jesus in their eyes.
    See child Jesus in every one.

    Saw Mary hold little baby — such love

    Saw Jesus hang on the cross — such love.

    Jesus I see Mary as she holds You so tenderly and Simeon prophesies Your sufferings.

    I see You as you hang on the cross.

    Through His life, death and resurrection, Jesus has come to give us life, and to give us this life in abundance.

    You died for us so we could be saved. Your attackers were so happy to lock Your lifeless body in the tomb.

    Death has no power over Jesus for He truly rose triumphant on the third day.

    Lord let me walk that last mile in your shoes under the weight of the wood and Lord, let me grow in the spiritual life. I want to go to heaven some day. I want to be with You forever in heaven.

Joyful Mysteries 

The Annunciation

1.  R.  The angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and asked Mary to be the Mother of Jesus.

2.  R.  Mary always complied to the Will of the Father. She had such faith and trust in God.

Mary said, ‘You see before you the Lord’s servant, let it happen to me as you have said.’ And the angel left her.  Luke 1: 38

3.  R.  Mary was filled with the Holy Spirit and the Word became flesh!

4.  R.  There was such intimacy between Jesus and Mary from the first moment of conception.

6.  R.  Jesus is with us this day. Jesus truly present in the tabernacle in His Divinity and humanity.

7.  R.  How tenderly we would treat the child Jesus if He were here today. But how do we treat our children? How do we treat one another?

8.  R.  God the Father loved us so very much that He sent His only begotten Son into this world.

9.  R.  Jesus loves us this much this day that He remains with us in the Eucharist!

10.  R.  Dear Jesus, help us to realize more and more how You truly are God and that You came to this earth a little child, an infant, so that we may be able to follow You.

The Visitation

1.  R.  Mary made haste to the hill country to visit her cousin Elizabeth. She was so overjoyed with the news that Jesus was in her womb. She wanted to tell her cousin Elizabeth. She was told by the angel that her cousin Elizabeth, in her old age, was with child!

2.  R.  When Mary arrived with Jesus in her womb, her cousin Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out:

‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord? Luke 1: 42-43

3.  R.  The child within Elizabeth's womb leapt for joy! John, who was in Elizabeth's womb, who would announce the coming of Jesus, was overjoyed. Even in the womb of his mother, he jumped for joy!

4.  R.  The invisible divine child, the child Jesus, was in Mary's womb. Jesus is in the Tabernacle this day. He comes to us in the Eucharist. We see before us the Consecrated Host. But beyond the veil is the Jesus who is waiting and longing to be with us. We should jump for joy as the child within Elizabeth's womb jumped at the sight of Mary and Jesus in her womb!

5.  R.  Mary was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out in a loud voice the Magnificat!

6.  Song:  My soul rejoices in God My Saviour. My Spirit finds its joy in God he Living God.

7.  Luke 1: 48

because he has looked upon
   the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
   all generations will call me blessed, 

8.  R.  For He Who is mighty hath done great things to me and Holy is His Name!

9.  R.  The first sanctuary of the child Jesus was the womb of the Virgin Mary. Now Jesus remains in the sanctuary of the Tabernacle waiting and longing for us to come and to be with Him. Jesus is no less present than the day that Mary carried Him in her womb. Would we not be so overjoyed to see the Virgin Mary with the child Jesus within her womb? Jesus is in the Tabernacle and wherever Jesus is, Mary is always by His side!

10.  R.  Come to the Tabernacle and pray your rosary in front of the Tabernacle for Jesus and Mary are truly here!

The Birth of Jesus

1.  R.  The child Jesus came to this earth and took on a human nature out of greatest love for us.

2.  R.  His majesty, the child Jesus, was born in a helpless little baby body.

3.  R.  Jesus came to this earth in such poverty. There was not a blare of trumpets, not a roll of drums! He came quietly and was born in a little stable in the town of Bethlehem with the cows and the sheep.

4.  R.  Jesus was born in poverty. However the night was such a great night. For the angels came and they sang greatest praise to the King of Kings — the Son of God — the Child Jesus!

5.  R.  Jesus wants us to pray to the Child Jesus this day! Jesus was a tender child. Such a loving child. So small but so Mighty! But the Child was Jesus, was God, in all His Power and all His Majesty and He took on a human nature for greatest love of us!

6.  R.  Oh what Goodness, the Goodness of God that He sent His only begotten Son into the world to become a little, helpless baby!

7.  R.  This helpless child who was born in the town of Bethlehem is the Savior of the world.

8.  R.  The Child Jesus came into this world and He brought to us His Divine Love.

Song:  What Child is This?

10.  R.  Do we realize even a small amount that Jesus Christ, the Son of God truly came into this world as a small child and that He remains with us this day in the Eucharist waiting for us?

Song between decades:  Ave, ave, ave Maria

 

The Presentation

1.  R.  Jesus was taken to the Temple

2.  R.  This reminds us of our own baptism. It is through baptism that we are made children of God and heirs of heaven. It is through baptism that we are given such a gift to have this special sharing in His life.

3.  R.  As water and blood poured forth from the pierced Heart of Jesus after His death, water is for Baptism, Blood for the Eucharist.

4.  R.  It is through His pierced Heart on Calvary, that the sacramental life of the Church was born!

5.  R.  Jesus is our Savior.

6.  R.  Jesus has provided for us so well. The Church is the body of Christ. We are one body in the Church!

7.  R.  The child Jesus was taken to the Temple to be presented to God. Mary place us ever so tenderly in the Heart  of Jesus. Jesus take us to Our Most Loving Father.

8.  R.  Father please accept us as a loving sacrifice. We come in the Heart of Your Beloved Son!

9.  R.  Let our heart forever slip so comfortably into the Heart of Our Beloved Jesus. Let us rest there in perfect peace away from all the turmoil, all the trouble, all the anxieties of this busy world. Let us find our refuge forever in the Heart of Jesus.

10.  R.  Dear Mary, as the Heart of Jesus was formed in your womb, as you held in your arms the Most Tender Sacred Heart as a little Child, as you watched Him on Calvary, a Heart so overflowing with love that He gave His flesh and His blood for us, now you see as they pierce His Heart with a lance and what pours forth is the blood and water, the sacramental life of the Church — Mary help us to be close to God. Mary, you  who know the Heart of Jesus, lead us to such intimacy with His Heart brimming over with greatest love for each one of us.

Song between decades:  Ave, ave, ave Maria

 

The Finding of Jesus in the Temple

1.  R.   The Child Jesus was taken up to the Temple when He was twelve years old. When Mary and Joseph had left, they left the Child Jesus behind!

2.  R.  Mary's Heart is a Heart that suffered and also experienced joy as she lived so closely to the Child Jesus. Mary, as you know the Heart of the Child Jesus, help us know more and more how to give Him love. He, Who is deserving of all of our love! We who think so little of how to give love to Him! Open up our eyes! Open up our minds to know how to love Jesus more tenderly.

3.  R.  Dear Child Jesus, You Who were lost in the Temple, were not lost at all. For You were doing the work the Father called You to do, preaching to the doctors in the Temple. As You preached in the Temple, teach us Your truths so that we may more and more see with our eyes, know with our minds and hearts, more and more about You about Your Divine Love.

4.  Song:  Little Child 

5.  R.  How hard it is for us to let go. To let go and let God lead the way. To realize that the way that He will lead us is the most wonderful way. It leads to the burning love of His Divine Heart.

6.  Song: Come Holy Spirit

 7.  R.  Mary's life with Jesus was a life with sorrow and joy. She held Him with great joy but then Simeon told her of the sufferings that she would experience all through her life. During all the joy that she had with the Child Jesus, she had before her eyes the prophecy of Simeon. Now as they searched for the Child Jesus in the Temple, her Heart was in such sorrowing to know that He was lost.

8.  R.  Holy Spirit, come upon us and open up our minds and our hearts so that we can more and more be drawn to know and love God more. So that if we are lost, we are led quickly back to the light that You impart to our hearts.

9.  R.  Give to us the gift of Wisdom, Knowledge, Understanding, Counsel and Fortitude so that we may be strengthened more and more to walk the way that Jesus is calling us to walk. May we never become lost and lose our way but follow the way that the Father has planned for us as His beloved children. Always follow His plan and always live in His Divine Will!

10.  Song:  I Love You Jesus

Song after last decade:  Ave, ave, ave Maria 

This rosary was prayed before the statue of Our Lady of Sorrows until the message was given in the 2nd Mystery at the 10th meditation to come to the Tabernacle to pray the rosary, at which point, we moved into the Holy Spirit Chapel and prayed the rosary before Jesus in the Tabernacle with Mary at His side.

Can you say no? Love, Jesus

R.  How many times Lord are we not like Peter. We call out, we will not have our faith shaken, Lord, I will do anything for You. And then, He calls us to stand up for our faith, to be a witness, to have courage. Peter slept in the garden, Peter denied Him three times.

    Peter His beloved apostle, fell, he was so close to Jesus, He walked with Him and talked with Him. It is only through the courage from the Spirit that we will carry His gospel into this world.

Jesus:  Pray, Pray for My beloved ones to have the fearlessness of the Apostles.

R.  Holy Spirit come to us and fill us with the Fire of Your love, so it is no longer we who operate, but the Spirit who moves and breathes within us. Unite us so closely to God, so we can truly say, it is no longer I who live, but He who lives in me.

MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME

 

 

February 7, 1995
Shepherds of Christ Meeting 

The Sorrowful Mysteries 

The Agony in the Garden

1.  R.  Jesus told the apostles that their faith would be put to the test.

Peter said, ‘Even if all fall away, I will not.’   Mark 14: 29

2.  R.  Be with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. His Hour had now arrived. He was about to be handed into the hands of His betrayer. He said to the apostles: Can you not watch with Me? And they fell asleep. Jesus was all alone in His agony. He saw before Him all the souls of this world today. The souls that are so busy that they do not even think of Jesus for one second. The indifferent souls! These are the souls that wounded His Most Sacred Heart!

3.  R.  Peter, who vowed to be faithful to Jesus, now slept! How many times are we half asleep when Jesus calls to us and we do not see because we do not want to let go of our world? How many times when we are called this day to spread His Good News, do we answer that call?

4. R.  Do we tell Jesus how we love Him as Peter did, and then when we are around others we worry so about how they think. It is so easy to forget how we sat and said to Jesus: Jesus, I love You! I love You! What can I do? Jesus is calling to you this night to take a stand in this world that is hurting. Never forsake Him! Realize that the most important thing in your life is our relationship with Jesus! When we are with others, know that He is with us always, waiting to love through us to this hurting world. At every moment with every heartbeat, He is within us and He will operate out of us to this hurting world if we will open up our hearts and let Him live, minute by minute, second by second, within our hearts.

5. R.  Think of the souls this day! Think of the people that you see that do not give any thought to Jesus at all! These are the people that you touch when you spread the Good News. It is so hard in this cold world to spread the love of Jesus. But He calls out to you this day to be His soldiers in a cold world. March into the world and spread His light as He radiates from our soul.

6. R.  As Jesus suffered such agony, such pain, He was comforted through His passion by the acts of love that we give to Him this day!

7. R.  Jesus saw all the wounds that He would suffer — all the beatings — all the insults — the mockery! He saw before Him all of His sufferings — the carrying of the cross! And with greatest love of us, He continued to go through with the Plan of the Father.

8. R.  Oh, we think that we are not loved! Sometimes we sit around and we think of how we would like to have more love. The love that the Father had for each one of us is that He gave His only begotten Son. And His Son, Jesus Christ, was born in a stable in the town of Bethlehem as a helpless little baby. The Son of God is now in the Garden and sees before Him everything that He would suffer! Out of greatest love for us, He said: Not My will but Thine be done!

9.  R.  How good is our God! He comes to this earth and takes on a human nature for greatest love of us! How good is our God that He comes to this earth so that someday we may be with Him forever in Heaven!

10. R.  His anguish was so great in the Garden that His sweat became as great drops of blood!

Song between decades:  A Song from Jesus

  

Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar

1.  R.   Mary wants you to know that she is appearing as Our Lady of Light — she is glistening — and she is here in such a special way with each one of you this evening, her beloved children she loves so much. You are her child, her precious child. She mothers you as she mothered her Son, Jesus.

Mary:  Open your hearts and meditate on My Son's passion.

2.  R.  Jesus stood at the pillar, tied. They beat Him from the top of His head to His feet. He was covered with deep, red wounds! The anger and hatred in the hearts of those men who beat Jesus!

3.  R.  Jesus' Mother had to withstand the awful treatment of her Son.

4.  R.   Jesus, who is all love!  See through the eyes of Mary! Feel through her heart! It is through her most tender Heart that you will be led ever closer to the most burning love of her Divine Son.

5.  R.  Hear the blows that they gave to Jesus! See Him at the pillar! Jesus does not yell out! Jesus makes grunting sounds but He withstands all the torture that they gave to Him!

   

6.  R.  Mary said that her Son was standing in a puddle of His own blood. Jesus was beaten on every part of His body. This is the love that He has for each one of us!

7.  R.  Gory, you might think to say that He was beaten with such wounds that His flesh hung from His body! This is how it was! Jesus loved us so much that He withstood the hatred and the anger with which these men beat Him to their own exhaustion. He calls out to us today to know that He suffered this for each one of us and for our brothers! As He suffered this torture for our brothers, He asks us to show our brothers love and kindness!

8.  R.  We all know what it is to have a wounded heart when someone talks cruelly to us, especially if it is someone we love very much and they talk cruelly. It is hard to let go of it! But think of Jesus! Jesus Who is all love! His Heart a burning furnace of love for these men and they beat Him and beat Him! As your heart was wounded by those you love, think of how His Heart was wounded by those who beat Him!

9.  R.  Jesus did not call out to them. He loved those who beat Him and tore His flesh. Jesus responded in silence. He responded always with love. He is Love! To be like Jesus we must act lovingly. He calls us to love. It is so hard to love when people have hurt us. It takes His grace. We pray to You dear Jesus, to fill us more and more with Your grace so we can spread Your love to this world, especially those that hurt us! Without Your grace, we cannot let go of our hurts. Give Your grace to us abundantly so that we may give love to all those, even those who are cruel to us!

10. R.  He says:  Time is so Short! Our lives are so short! Eternity goes on forever and ever and ever! He calls us to love this day. If we love God and love one another, we will be with Him forever in Heaven!

Jesus is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

1.  R.  In Medjugorje, I (Rita) saw the blood as it came down from His thorns! How do you write what the Blood of Jesus, as it runs down from His thorns looks like? This was a fact. Yesterday (2-6-95) I saw Him hanging on the cross. His head was hung down. A long, slender face, hollow cheeks, His head was below His shoulders. It was hanging so low. Once I saw Him with the blood running out of His mouth from the blows they had given to His Head!

2.  R.  This is the truth! Jesus Christ, God, came to earth and suffered this much for love of each one of us! He did it for all souls. He is calling you this day to be His apostles, to spread the love that He has to this world.

3.  Song:  Only this I want, but to know the Lord. And to bear His cross, so to wear the crown He wore!

4.  Jesus:  Walk with Me! Be with Me as I suffer so on My Passion! Be with Me this night. For it is in realizing how I suffered for you that you will be drawn ever closer to My Heart that is burning up with love for you!

5.  Jesus:  You see with such limited vision those things that are in front of your face. I call you to see more with the eyes of God all that is before you. Look beyond the Consecrated Host you receive and you will see Jesus Christ, the Son of God!

6.  R.  Look at your brother! Look deeply into his eyes and you will see the beloved creation of the Heavenly Father. He is the creation of God the Father. He was created in greatest love by God!

7.  R.  Pray for vision! Pray to the Spirit to see more and more with the vision of God, to see beyond this world and to see the reality that this is truly God's world! Your every breath depends on Him. Heaven is truly there for those who love and serve the Lord!

8.  R.  They mocked Jesus and they spit on Jesus. They called Him King of the Jews. When they persecute you for the sake of Jesus, remember what they did to Him. Many of the people in the world are godless and reject the things of God!

9.  R.  Jesus came and was crowned with thorns and was clothed with a dirty purple robe. He put up with all their insults and all their mockery because He loves each one of us so much this day. In realizing His love more and becoming one with Him, you cannot help but give this love to others. Our calling from Him is to love God and love one another!

10.  R.  God's way is the way to follow. Our way should be to follow Him!

Jesus:  I am the way, the truth and the life.

Jesus Carries His Cross Up Calvary

1.  R.  See Jesus clothed in a white garb, tied about His waist. See Jesus' face! See Jesus with the cross on His back and the crown of thorns on His head! See Jesus' face dripping with blood. See Him look at you with a bended back as He carries the cross on His back! See clearly that this is truly Jesus Christ, that suffered this much for love of you!

2.  R.  Jesus said: I am no less present when you receive Me in communion than the day that I walked with My cross on My back. He shouts: I give you Myself! I give you Myself! And the people walk out the door after communion! It is a fact that Jesus Christ is with us this day and He gives us Himself!

3.  R.  In the act of greatest love for us, He gives us Himself!

4.  R.  The statue of Our Lady of Sorrows is beaming so brightly as the above meditations were given. She is so bright and beautiful. What is seen is only a little piece of what Heaven is like!

5.  R.  And their eyes peered into one another's eyes on Calvary. The beating of the Two Hearts, the immense love that each one had for one another, and the  love they have for us!

6.  R.  In that look, the touching of their Hearts!

7.  Song:  Lord, let me walk that last mile in Your shoes under the weight of the wood!

8.  Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

9.  R.  Walk alongside of Mary as she walked alongside of her beloved Son. In all of His sufferings, Mary could not lend a hand! She was a mother in every sense of the word and this was her beloved child that she raised, that she rocked, that she loved. She watched Him covered with blood. She watched Him crawl under the cross and she could not help Him at all!

10.  R.  This is the love that Jesus and Mary have for each one of us! He was covered with wounds! Gashes into His whole body! His Heart was torn within for the anguish that He suffered because He loved so much, and so many souls would treat Him so indifferently and neglect Him throughout all their lives. Mary suffered so. She bore no wounds but the agony to Her most tender Heart! How her Heart was torn inside her chest! There is no way to describe the pain that she suffered as she walked along and watched her Son!

Song between decades:  A Song from Jesus

 

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1.  Song:  At the cross her station keeping, stood the mournful Mother weeping. Close to Jesus to the last!

2.  Song:  Little Baby Hands and Feet

R.  See through Mary's eyes as she beholds her Son! The same little child that she held! The same little feet that she once took care of and now she watches as they pound into His hands and feet, the nails and nail Him to the cross!

3.  R.  Jesus is calling out to you this day to be His soldiers to go into this world, to pray to the Spirit for the courage to do this work that He is asking you to do. To stand tall and to stand up for the Good News! To preach the Gospel in your being. To not worry what people think of you but to keep your focus ever on Him and to realize more and more every day the love of these Two Hearts. Mary, His Mother and Jesus, who hung from the cross to His death for love of each one of us!

4.  R.  Jesus has given us so much! He has given to us His most beloved Mother to be our Mother!

5.  R.  Mother Mary, help us to always be the child that you are proud of. Lead us, as our Most Loving Mother, closer and closer to the Burning Heart of Your Son, Jesus!

6.  R.  Help us to be able to give our love more and more to Jesus, to realize more how He loves us, to realize more how He truly longs and waits for our tender words, to spend our day with Him, to share our thoughts with Him, to tell Him when we are filled with love with Him! O Jesus, how I love You and thank You for all that You have done for me!

7.  Song:  God is so good, God is so good, God is so good, Oh, so good to me!

8.  R.  We are the soldiers that Jesus wants to send into the world to carry out the Father's Plan. Each one of us is uniquely created by the Father for a special mission on this earth. Each one of us is so precious to the Father! Each one of us is so precious to the Son and Holy Spirit! We are His most loving children! We are the creation of the Father. We are the souls that Jesus Christ gave His flesh and His blood for. We are so loved!

9.  R.  Dear Spirit, open our eyes to see more and more the goodness of God! To love the Church, to love the priests, to love the Mass! Open up our eyes to know and to understand, to experience the love of God! Help us to realize the great gift that Jesus has given us in giving Himself to us in the Eucharist! Holy Spirit fill us with your fire, the vibrancy within ourselves of God's love! Move within us, Dear Spirit, so that we may radiate to this world the love of God that lives and dwells within us!

10. Song:  I Love You Jesus

R.  And He outpoured to each and every one of them His abundant grace so that they were filled more and more with His Divine Love to carry out to this world the love of God. As it radiated within their being, and as they surrendered more to Him, He penetrated their souls more and more! Lead us ever closer to union with You, O Jesus. Help us to grow into Your image! Dear Spirit, transform us into the image of Jesus!

 

Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary

1.  Prophecy of Simeon.   R.  Joseph and Mary took the child Jesus to the temple. Simeon, who had been told by the Holy Spirit that he would not die until he had seen the Messiah, was led by the Spirit into the temple. He held the child Jesus in his arms and he said that he was ready to die. But he also said to Mary and Joseph that Jesus and Mary would suffer. He told Mary that a sword, too, would pierce her soul! From that point on, whenever Mary looked at the child Jesus, she remembered the prophecy of Simeon and her Heart was wounded throughout the rest of Jesus' life for she knew so much detail of the suffering that He would undergo. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

2.  The Flight Into Egypt.   R.  Joseph was told in a dream to take the child Jesus and Mary to Egypt. In the middle of the night, they had to gather all their things and flee into Egypt to be protected from Herod.

3.  The Loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple.   R.  Jesus and Mary and Joseph went to the temple when Jesus was twelve years old. They left on the caravan and did not realize that Jesus was left behind. When they realized this, they returned to Jerusalem, their Hearts in such sorrow looking for the child Jesus. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

4.  Jesus and Mary Meet on the Way to the Cross.   R.  And their eyes peered into one another's on Calvary. In that look was the deep, deep love and union that they had for each other. She saw her Son covered with blood and He saw His Mother with a reddened, red-teared face!

5.  Jesus Dies on the Cross.   R.  Jesus dies on the Cross and Mary stands beneath the cross! See Jesus as He hung on the cross against the darkened sky! His body is weakened, withered, humped over! His Mother saw her child as He hung to His death! She wants you to know that her Son truly gave His life because He loves you! Pray for grace to know and to love Him more! Every day pray for grace to participate more in His Divine Life and Divine Love that He wants to give to you. Mary says He loves us so much! Each and every single person present! Meditate more on His love! Sit and close your eyes and think about Him! God truly, truly loves you! All the power and all the might comes from God. Why worry? We need only to focus more on God and His love for us. (Rita commented that Mary was smiling while she said the above) Realize more and more the immense love that He has for you. Take the time to have a relationship with Him. It takes time to grow in a relationship. Mary asks you to grow more and more in your relationship with Him.

6.  Jesus is Taken Down from the Cross and Laid in Mary's Arms.   R.  Mary receives the lifeless body of her Son in her arms. As she held His body, His little baby body in the temple and Simeon prophesied the sufferings that were to come, now she holds His body covered with blood and lifeless!

Mary:  This is the love that my Son has for you, that He gave His life for you and He remains with you this day and longs and waits for you. His power is endless! Come to Him in the Eucharist. He loves you so much!

7.  The Burial of Jesus.   R.  They locked Jesus in the tomb and His enemies thought that they had won the battle! On the third day, Jesus rose! Death has no power over Jesus! In all the struggles that we go through this day, there is life. For it is in the struggles that we are drawn more closely to Him! It is in the death that there is the resurrection!

This rosary was prayed before the statue of Our Lady of Sorrows during the Shepherds of Christ meeting.

Rita commented frequently through the rosary how beautiful Mary was as she appeared.

  Glorious Mysteries

The Resurrection

1.  Jesus:  I call you to surrender as I surrendered to the Will of the Father.

He then left to make his way as usual to the Mount of Olives, with the disciples following. When he reached the place he said to them, ‘Pray not to be put to the test.’ Then he withdrew from them, about a stone’s throw away, and knelt down and prayed. ‘Father,’ he said, ‘if you are willing, take this cup away from me. Nevertheless, let your will be done, not mine.’ Then an angel appeared to him, coming from heaven to give him strength. In his anguish he prayed even more earnestly, and his sweat fell to the ground like great drops of blood. When he rose from prayer he went to the disciples and found them sleeping for sheer grief. And he said to them, ‘Why are you asleep? Get up and pray not to be put to the test.’   Luke 22: 39-46

Jesus:  I suffered the brutal Passion and died on the cross. I rose from the dead on the third day.

R.  Death has no power over Jesus!!

2.  Jesus:  Such freedom to surrender!

3.  Song:  A Song from Jesus

4.  Jesus:  I will take you to the end of the hill and you will jump forever into My loving arms.

5.  Jesus:  It is in My hot air balloon you will know immense freedom.

6.  Jesus:  I rose on the third day from the dead. It is through the power of the Spirit that you are transformed more and more into My image and led closer to the Father. The Father loves you so much.

7.  Jesus:  Amen, Amen I say to you that you shall not falter for as you walk I walk before you and prepare the way.

8.  Jesus:  Satan wants to confuse you and try to get you to doubt, don't give into satan - Live to be more deeply united to Me. Satan doesn't want you to get close to Me. You must let go.

Song:  Little Child

9.  Song:  Be Not Afraid

10.  Jesus said: I am the resurrection. Anyone who believes in me, even though that person dies, will live,  John 11: 25

Song between decades:   Come Holy Spirit, fill our hearts

  

The Ascension

1.  They were still talking about all this when he himself stood among them and said to them, ‘Peace be with you!’ In a state of alarm and fright, they thought they were seeing a ghost.  Luke 24: 36-37

2.  R.  His enemies were overjoyed when they locked Him in the tomb.
                Death has no power over Jesus.
                He rose on the third day.

3.  R.  He is the Almighty God. He has all the might!

Then he told them, ‘This is what I meant when I said, while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses, in the Prophets and in the Psalms, was destined to be fulfilled.’   Luke 24: 44

4.  Mary:  Surrender my children to the burning Heart of the child Jesus for He is full of such love. Pray to the child Jesus. He will help you do the Will of the Father. Ask for grace to do the will of God.

5.  R.  Out of greatest love for us, Jesus remains with us in His Divinity and humanity in the Eucharist, no less present than the day He walked the earth. We have nothing to fear for Jesus is truly present in this room with us at this very moment!

6.  Song:  I am the Bread of Life.

7.  Jesus:  Surrender! Surrender! Surrender! As I surrendered always to the Will of the Father and I was triumphant on the third day and rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven - surrender to the will of God.

8.  Jesus:  My children, I call out to you to come to the Tabernacle. Come forward! Be with Me! Be there with My Burning Heart that is on fire for each one of you. All power comes from God. Come to My Eucharistic Heart!

9.  Jesus:  Power! All power comes from ME!

10.  Jesus:  Sing:  Let go, let go, you hold on so tight. To the things that are near you, not ever right.

1.  R.  Holy Spirit transform us into the image and likeness of Jesus within the heart of Mary. We want to be closer and closer to our Father and know His love for us.

2.  R.  And they had locked themselves in the upper room and a gigantic wind descended upon them and over their heads there remained parted tongues of fire!

3.  R.  And they were filled with the fire of the Holy Spirit!

4.  R.  The fire! The vibrancy! God's love! The Spirit that moves - filling us with love!!

5.  R.  Come to us O Holy Spirit and transform our hearts from fear to fearlessness.

6.  R.  Surrender! Don't think about what other people think, focus only on the Father's Will for us!

7.  R.  How we cry out: Lord! Lord! I will always be there! I want to love You. But when we are faced with a problem, when we are in front of other people, many times, we shrink back afraid to speak out about the love of God. Holy Spirit, fill us with the fearlessness you gave to the apostles when they went out and preached. They were not afraid. Fill us with this fearlessness to see before our eyes the souls that will be lost. You are truly calling us this day to be apostles to spread the love of Jesus' Most Sacred Heart into this hurting world. Holy Spirit come to us and fill us with the fire of the love of Jesus as you did the apostles when they went out into the world and they preached the Gospel fearlessly. Give us the same fearlessness to always stand before you and to operate in this world filled with God's love.

8.  R.  Holy Spirit transform us more and more into the image of Jesus.

Galatians 2: 19-20

I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me. The life that I am now living, subject to the limitation of human nature, I am living in faith, faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me.

R.  Permeate our being with the fire of Your love, come and possess our soul. Help us to love the souls that are hurting. Help us to surrender to do God's will - in that lies our peace and joy.

9.  R.  I call out to you Lord to outpour to me Your abundant grace so that I am filled more and more with your grace - I know your life alive in me. Let me know Your Divine Love oh God: Let me know so deeply your love: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This is our prayer this day: to ask you to outpour your grace abundantly on each one of us so that we can operate with your life alive in us more and more.

10.  R.  And He filled their hearts with the grace of the Divine God and they felt the courage that they needed to do the work that the Father had called them to do. For it is in this work that the love of God will be spread throughout the world. For it is truly this job that the Father calls each one of us to: to be soldiers in a hurting world, to spread the burning love of God.

Jesus:  Time is so short,  My children. Many in this world has forgotten God. My heart was in such agony in the Garden for all the souls in your world today that treat Me with such indifference. It is in your earnestness to spread this message to this world that the world will be a better place through you if you open up your hearts and carry the message of My love to the world today.

From Your pierced Heart the Church was born, the Church You have called me, as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, to serve in a most special way.

In a return of love, I give myself entirely to your motherly love and protection. You followed Jesus perfectly. You are His first and perfect disciple. Teach me to imitate you in the putting on of Christ. Be my motherly intercessor so that, through your Immaculate Heart, I may be guided to an ever closer union with the pierced Heart of Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock."

10.  The Memorare. "Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but, in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen."

Sing:  Ave Ave - Ave Maria
          Ave Ave - Ave Maria  (like in Conyers)

R.  End with Come Holy Spirit fill our hearts

Holy Spirit Prayer. Come, Holy Spirit, almighty Sanctifier, God of love, who filled the Virgin Mary with grace, who wonderfully changed the hearts of the apostles, who endowed all Your martyrs with miraculous courage, come and sanctify us. Enlighten our minds, strengthen our wills, purify our consciences, rectify our judgment, set our hearts on fire, and preserve us from the misfortunes of resisting Your inspirations. Amen.

Sing:  Little Child

R.  This rosary was prayed before the tabernacle.

Jesus appeared as the Sacred Heart.

Hot Air Balloons

R.  What do I take in my hot air balloon. Do I take all these worldly goods that will weigh down the balloon, Will I travel light. He has all you need. Will you operate with His gifts, or do you need tons of earthly things to secure you on your way.

    Do they secure you or do they hold you bound to them. They are heavy, they weigh you down. What do you need to grow in Him?

 

February 9, 1995 - 9:15 After Communion

Know the Freedom of Flying

R.   I hear the fire of His love in the hot air balloon. No strings entirely free. He asks for surrender, total surrender. He must be first above all things. Not being attached to any person, place or thing. The willingness to surrender your all to Him.

Jesus:  As I give you Myself in the Eucharist, I ask you to give your all to Me. In My goodness I give to you all you need. Everything you have is a gift from Me. I control your every breath, the food you eat is a gift from Me. Your children are gifts from Me. You give yourself to Me, I give to you abundantly all that you need. Sing Total surrender. Let go, let go you hold on so tight to the things that are near you not ever right.

    Let Go, let go My child, you will know the freedom of flying, flying in My Hot Air Balloon, propelled by the fire of My love. Let go of it all and I will provide you with your needs. I give you grace abundantly to carry you on your way. My life, My love is enough for you. From My goodness I impart to you My gifts. You are totally free, totally dependent on Me, as a baby at the breast. I give you all you need. I am the Good Shepherd, I know mine and mine know Me. I hold my lambs close to My Heart. You I take deeply into My Heart, you I caress with the fire of My love. I love you so much.

R.     I adore You Oh Christ and I love You.

    By Your holy cross, You have redeemed the world.

    Opened book and saw the song Like a Shepherd

Sing:  Like a Shepherd

    Say to the cities - Go to the mountain top and shout — Prepare the Way of the Lord. Pray to St. John the Baptist.

    I see clearly before me, with Jesus it is like on Eagle's Wings, though fiery darts fall about you, you will stand by the fire of His love. 

    You are in His balloon — He protects you, nothing can penetrate you. You are a rock, steadfast in His love, FREE, you are totally in His care.

Song:  On Eagle's Wings  
 

Psalm 91 

You who live in the secret place of Elyon,
spend your nights in the shelter of Shaddai,
saying to Yahweh, ‘My refuge, my fortress,
my God in whom I trust!’

He rescues you from the snare
of the fowler set on destruction;
he covers you with his pinions,
you find shelter under his wings.
His constancy is shield and protection.

You need not fear the terrors of night,
the arrow that flies in the daytime,
the plague that stalks in the darkness,
the scourge that wreaks havoc at high noon.

Though a thousand fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
you yourself will remain unscathed.
You have only to keep your eyes open
to see how the wicked are repaid,
you who say, ‘Yahweh my refuge!’
and make Elyon your fortress.

No disaster can overtake you,
no plague come near your tent;
he has given his angels orders about you
to guard you wherever you go.

They will carry you in their arms
in case you trip over a stone.
You will walk upon wild beast and adder,
you will trample young lions and snakes.

‘Since he clings to me I rescue him,
I raise him high, since he acknowledges my name.
He calls to me and I answer him:
in distress I am at his side,
I rescue him and bring him honour.
I shall satisfy him with long life,
and grant him to see my salvation.’

R.  Go to the Mountain Top and shout the good news. Jesus has died, He is risen and He will come again. Prepare ye the way of the Lord.

    He comes, you are being called to prepare the way. In the wilderness cry out, shout it from the mountain tops, Jesus is Lord. His Mother comes to tell you to turn your lives to God.  Make Him first.

Jesus:  I am Jesus, I am calling out an urgent call to all this day to take Me seriously. It is in this call that many will turn their hearts to God. You can no longer sit idlely by and watch. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God, you must go out into this world, do not think of what people are thinking, your focus must be on Me. I CALL YOU TO ACTION, TODAY, Think of your brothers' souls. Spread My love throughout the earth, on the highways, on the byways, you hold not back, tell the Good News to every man. I call, I call, I call, I am calling YOU THIS DAY — will you answer. Time is so short, souls are at stake. Take this message seriously. I am Jesus Christ the Son of God. Purify your hearts. I am Jesus your God.

R.  Jesus told the disciples all the scriptures that pertained to Him on the way to Emmaus. How blind were they.

  "Now while he was with them at table, he took the bread and said the blessing; then he broke it and handed it to them. And their eyes were opened and they recognised him; but he had vanished from their sight. "  Luke 24: 30-31

R.   They did not recognize Him, over and over again.

    We do not recognize Jesus in our brothers starving to death.

    Many do not see beyond the consecrated host and see Jesus truly present in His Divinity and humanity.

    Thomas had to put his hands into Jesus' wounds.

John 20: 29

Jesus said to him:

    You believe because you can see me.
    Blessed are those who have not seen
        and yet believe. 

R.   Look with the eyes of faith.

    Mary Magdalene did not recognize Him.

    They did not recognize Him in the upper room.

    We do not see, we look with our eyes.

    Jesus is truly present and with us this day in the Eucharist.

    Jesus, You are in the exposed Eucharist here. I see so little, You are here in Your Divinity and humanity. I must reach with the eyes of God. I must see with the eyes of faith.

Jesus:  Faith My children, you will know Me in your hearts. I am truly with you this day. You scratch only the surface, you tap ever so gently and I am a burning furnace of endless love.

    I am God, I AM WHO AM, I came and you are oh so blind, Oh My children look beyond yourselves, reach with the soul.

    See the almighty God, He longs to be one with you.

    I am Jesus the Son of God, you are so blind. I am waiting in the tabernacle, My Heart on fire and burning with love.

    Burning My dear ones, burning and waiting for you this day.

Song:  A Song from Jesus

Song:  Little Child

R.  They saw Him after He rose from the dead in His glorified body. They saw Him ascend into heaven and they full of fear locked themselves in the upper room. They saw and they were FULL OF FEAR — Peter full of FEAR, afraid of what people thought, he denied Jesus.

    But only through the power of the Spirit were they transformed from fear to fearlessness.

    They saw Jesus and they were afraid of what people thought.

    Mary was assumed into heaven body and soul. What matters when we die? Surrender your earthly good. Let go, let go, let go!

 

February 9, 1995

Spend Time with Your Children

Jesus:  My dear child,

    Slow up. You must spend time with your children. I will get My work done.

    I come to you with greatest love. I can in one second do so much. I am Jesus your Savior.

    The rosary meditations are the mysteries of My life and My Mother's life. I give to you these messages throughout the rosary. Our lives should live in your daily lives. My messages are to help these mysteries live in your daily lives. I came to show you the way. I come that you might have life in Me, meditate on My life in the rosary and live the mysteries in your daily life.

 

February 9, 1995

Let the Spirit Move In You

Jesus:  I want every person to pray to the Holy Spirit every day. The Holy Spirit transforms you more and more into the image of Jesus. The Love of the Holy Spirit is fire, this love is vibrancy, this love activates in your being. Let the Spirit move within you, let the fire of His love radiate from your being. The love of God is a power too mighty to be contained, it radiates to those around you.

R.  In order to have intimacy with Jesus you must pray to the Spirit. The Spirit leads you more and more in union with Jesus as He transforms you into His image. God is love, to unite with love you must be filled with love. To know God is to love. The Spirit is this force, the love of God, radiating in your being. He is power, vibrancy, fire, He wants to move in you. Feel the Spirit in you. Pray this prayer everyday at Jesus' request.

Galatians 2: 19-20

I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me. The life that I am now living, subject to the limitation of human nature, I am living in faith, faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me.

R.  Holy Spirit fill me and permeate my soul. Life in the Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Almighty God. Let the Spirit fill you and help you in all your actions.

    Pray for the gifts of the Spirit. Thank God for baptism. The gifts of the Spirit are wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, fear of the Lord.

    Sing often through the day: Come Holy Spirit fill our hearts enkindle in us the fire of God's love.

    When you are steadfast in the love of the Trinity nothing can harm you. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within you when you are baptized and in the state of grace.

Transcribed from a tape of a live rosary as Mary and Jesus appeared

Joyful Mysteries

The Annunciation

1.  R.  The angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and asked her to be the Mother of Jesus.

2.  R.  Mary always did the Will of the Father. She trusted totally in the Father and did exactly as she was told to do.

3.  R.  Mary was filled with the Spirit and the Word became flesh.

4.  R.  Fill us with your Spirit and lead us to closer union with Jesus. Help us to become one in Him so that we may know the Will of the Father. Dear Spirit dwell in us. Move in us. Fill us with the fire of Your Love. Help us to trust and have faith, to know that what we are doing is what we are being called to do by the Father.

5.  R.  And God imparted to them the Gifts of the Spirit: Wisdom, Knowledge, Understanding, Fear of the Lord, Fortitude. He came to them. He gave them the gift to know what He was calling them to do.

6.  R.  All peace and joy come from doing the Father's Will. When we know that we are connected and close to Jesus, our hearts are at peace.

7.  Isaiah 49: 14-15

Zion was saying,
    'Yahweh has abandoned me,
the Lord has forgotten me.'
Can a woman forget her baby at the breast,
feel no pity for the child she has borne?
Even if these were to forget,
I shall not forget you.

8.  Song:  Come Holy Ghost

9.  R.  Jesus calls us to total trust in His Most Sacred Heart.  He died on the cross for love of us. He will never abandon us and will take care of us at every single second. As our hearts beat and as we breathe, He is with us this very moment with His Heart on fire for love of us.

10.  R.  God loved this world so much that He sent His only begotten Son into the world to save us from our sins!

Song between decades:  Ave, ave, ave Maria

   

The Visitation

1.  R.  Mary made haste to the hill country to be with her cousin, Elizabeth. The angel had told Mary that her cousin Elizabeth, in her old age, had conceived a child.

2.  R.  Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out:

‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord?  Luke 1: 42-43

3.  R.  The servant usually goes to the Master, but Jesus, out of greatest love for us, comes to us.  It is out of love that He, Who is Almighty, comes to us in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary!

4.  R.  And Mary was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out with a loud voice her Magnificat!

5.  Luke 1: 46-47

And Mary said:
My soul proclaims
the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
in God my Saviour;  

6.  Luke 1: 48

because he has looked upon
the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
all generations will call me blessed, 

7.  Jesus:  Should a mother forsake her child, I will never abandon you! I am with you at every single moment. As you breathe, as your heart beats, I am here. You must totally surrender and trust in Me for I am truly Jesus Christ, the Son of God! You will not learn how to trust unless you let go! I am here with you this night and I ask you to surrender your all to Me, to let go totally and to know that I will lead you as you go on your path.

8.  Jesus:  Do not be afraid for I am forever by your side, guarding you, watching you, caring for you. You are My special soldier to spread My Love throughout this world. It is through your trust that you will be strong soldiers. Come to My Eucharistic Heart and know all that I have to give to you.

9.  Jesus:  I remain with you this day in the Eucharist, the same as the day that Mary carried Me in her womb. I am with you in My Divinity and humanity in the tabernacle. Put your trust in Me for I am truly God! I am the Master! You are My beloved souls! Trust in Me for I will never abandon you, My precious ones!

10.  Song:  O Holy Dwelling Place

Song between decades:  Ave, ave, ave Maria

 

The Birth of Jesus

1.  R.  Jesus calls to us to have faith, to believe the things that we cannot see. To believe with our whole hearts. It is His world and He runs this world. We must have faith in our hearts that He is forever with us and forever by our side.

2.  R.  Jesus will not abandon us, even in our darkest hour! When we are down, He is there looking into our eyes! This burning Heart of the Sacred Heart of Jesus forever with us! Forever ready to lead us closer and closer to Him and to follow the Plan of the Father! But it takes total commitment to Him and to do all the things that He is asking us to do.

3.  R.  The Father so loved this world that He sent His only Son into the world to be born!

4.  R.  Do we think that He would send His Son into this world and not be with us this day? Pray to the Father for all your needs, for the Father created you and loves you so dearly. He will open up your minds and hearts and you will know the plan for you. Pray to the Spirit to know only those things that God can impart to you for He is truly ready to tell you what God wants you to do!

5.  Jesus:  I call you to action! To spread the love of God throughout the land! For there are souls that will be lost if they do not know the love of Jesus!

6.  Jesus:  I send these messages not for two or three, but for all the souls of this world. I ask you to pray fervently to know the Will of the Father to spread these messages throughout the land!

7.  Song:  On This Day O Beautiful Mother

8.  Song:  Trust in the Lord

9.  R.  Give to us, O Holy Spirit, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the faith and trust that we need to do the Will of God. Transform us more and more within the Heart of Mary, into the image of Jesus, God's Son, which will lead us ever closer to the love of our Beloved Father.

10.  R.  And Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was born a baby in a stable in the town of Bethlehem for greatest love of us!

Song between decades:  Ave, ave, ave Maria

 

The Presentation

1.  R.  Joseph and Mary and Jesus went to the Temple. Simeon, an old man, had received from the Holy Spirit, the knowledge that he would see the Messiah before he died. The Holy Spirit led him to the Temple and he held the Child Jesus and said that now he was ready to die.

2.  R.  But he told Mary of the sufferings that she and Jesus would undergo. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

3.  R.  From that point on, whenever Mary looked at her beloved child, she remembered the prophecy of Simeon and so her heart was constantly pierced by the sword for she knew of the sufferings that her little boy would undergo as she looked at Him.

4.  R.  How blind we are that we do not see! We want to see with our eyes when Jesus comes to us with the eyes of faith and asks us to trust and open up our hearts. It is in this faith and trust that we know Him more deeply. Look beyond the Consecrated Host and see the Divine Lord! For it is truly God that you experience when you receive Him in communion. There is such a presence, an overwhelming presence of the Divine Lord!

5.  Song:  Look Beyond

6.  R.  As Mary suffered all through the life that she shared with Jesus, think of these sorrows of Mary. Mary loves us and is with us this day. Mary walks by our side. She is truly our Loving Mother and she wants us to reach out and wants us to trust her and to realize that she will lead us ever closer to union with Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

7.  R.  The Presentation of the child Jesus in the Temple should remind us of our own baptism. We become children of God and heirs of Heaven! It is in Baptism that we are received into a special sharing in His life - our human nature is elevated. We are God's children. He loves us so much! He gives so much to us at Baptism!

8.  R. They pierced His Heart with a lance and what flowed forth was blood and water, the sacramental life of the Church, water for Baptism and blood for the Eucharist. His life, death and resurrection live on in the Church this day.

9.  R.  We do not even realize how gifted we are by our great God who is so good to us!

10. R.  Holy Spirit, the more we unite with Mary, our mother, transform us more and more into the image of Jesus and lead us ever closer to the Father.

Song between decades:  Ave, ave, ave Maria

 

The Finding of Jesus in the Temple

1.  R.  When Jesus was twelve years old He was taken up to the Temple for the feast of the Passover with Mary and Joseph.

2.  R.  When it was over, they had gone from the Temple and did not realize that the child Jesus had been left behind.

3.  R.  With such sorrow in their hearts, they returned searching the streets, looking all over for the child Jesus.

4.  R.  They found Him in the Temple teaching the doctors and all were astonished at His wisdom and answers!

5.  R.  Teach us Your truths, O Jesus! Dear Holy Spirit, release the gifts that we received in Baptism. Give us Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding! Help us to know more and more the mysteries of our Divine God!

6. 

Excerpt from Response to God's Love, by Father Edward Carter, S.J.

   ...In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

    The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ. St. Paul tells us: "I became a minister of this Church through the commission God gave me to preach among you his word in its fullness, that mystery hidden from ages and generations past but now revealed to his holy ones. God has willed to make known to them the glory beyond price which this mystery brings to the Gentiles—the mystery of Christ in you, your hope of glory. This is the Christ we proclaim while we admonish all men and teach them in the full measure of wisdom, hoping to make every man complete in Christ" (Col 1:25-28).

7.  R.  As you searched for the child Jesus in the Temple, dear Mary, help us on our search to know more about Jesus so that we may love Him and love the Father and the Holy Spirit more.

8.  R.  Dear Child Jesus, You Who are God, You Who are all Love, teach us more about Love! Our vision is so limited. Open up our hearts! Fill us with Your grace so that we may share more in Your Life to know and love You more every minute of our lives, to share more in Your Divine Love.

9.  R.  Draw us ever closer to the most abundant love of the Two Hearts that live in the mysteries of these rosaries: the Hearts of Jesus and Mary that love us so dearly and suffered so for greatest love of us! Draw us ever closer to these Two Hearts of such immense love!

10.  R.  You, Jesus, Who took on a human nature so that we might follow You! You, Mary you — a human person! Help us to model ourselves more after you, Mary and You, Jesus, so that we may grow into the children that the Father created us to be!

Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary

1.  The Prophecy of Simeon.   R.  Mary and Joseph take the child Jesus to the Temple and Simeon, the Prophet, tells Mary how she and Jesus will suffer. He says to her that a sword, too, shall pierce her heart!

2.  The Flight into Egypt.   R.  Joseph was awakened after a dream that told him to take the child Jesus and flee to Egypt. So, in the middle of the night, he took Mary and the child Jesus for into Egypt to be protected from the wrath of Herod.

3.  The Loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple.   R.  Joseph and Mary were searching for the child Jesus in the Temple, their hearts in such sorrowing to realize that the child Jesus was lost. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

4.  Jesus and Mary Meet on the way to the Cross.   R.  And their eyes peer into one another's. Mary's eyes peered into Jesus' eyes. There was such intimacy between them. There is such intimacy between them this day. The union of their Two Hearts, the hearts that love us so dearly. See them as they look into each other's eyes. Jesus, with blood running down His face and crowned with thorns, with a cross on His back. Mary, with her face reddened from the tears that she shed for her beloved Son. She calls out today to come for His most ardent love. He truly is waiting and longing for us. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

5.  Jesus Dies on the Cross.   R.  Jesus with His weakened, bloody, battered body dies on the cross against the darkened sky. Mary stands below and sees her Son as He hangs for three hours of agony to His death!

6.  Jesus is Taken Down from the Cross and Laid in Mary's Arms.    R.  Mary receives the lifeless body of her Son into her arms after He is taken down from the cross.

7.  The Burial of Jesus.   R.  When Jesus is locked in the Tomb, they were so happy because they thought they had locked Him away. But on the third day He rose triumphant because death has no power over Jesus!!!!

 

This rosary was prayed before Mary, in the statue of Our Lady of Sorrows. Rita, Cathy, Joe, Carol and Marty were present

Mary appeared so sweet looking — so beautiful full of light — she was all white, her head moved — light flashed — especially pinkish/purple light.

Jesus appeared.

Don't Fear

Jesus:  My child, My child,

    You will know My might. I am your God, open up your heart to complete surrender. You must be so steadfast in My love. The devil will press down and tell you to fear, but dear child, I am forever guarding you and you must trust totally in Me.

Sorrowful Mysteries

 

Song:  The Rosary Song

The Agony in the Garden

1.  R.  Put yourself in the garden with Jesus, in the darkened night. Be there as He kneels and sees before Him His entire Passion that is about to occur.

2.  R.  Jesus' Heart was in such anguish for all the souls that would treat Him so indifferently and neglect Him. He loved them so dearly! So many that turned their backs on Him. So many that ignored Him their whole lives.

3.  R.  Look at our world today! Look at the faces of the people that we see. Jesus loved the souls so much. He went through His bitter Passion and died on the cross for them! We must pray for these souls. We must spread the message of His great love throughout this world. We must have a close relationship with Jesus. He will use us to reach souls. The world is hurting.

4.  R.  Jesus saw before Him everything that He would experience through the entire Passion. His greatest agonies were not those agonies that He suffered to His body, but the agonies that He suffered to His Most Sacred Heart.

5.  R.  Jesus Christ, the Son of God, remains with us this day! God remains with us in His Divinity and humanity in the tabernacle! He saw before Him the endless hours that He would wait and wait for His most precious souls that He loved and how the souls would not come to the tabernacle to even be with Him.

6.  R.   Jesus waits for us, His precious souls, to be with Him. He waits day after day in the tabernacle out of greatest love for us. He waits. He is no less present than the day that He was in the garden. He calls out to us to come to Him. He pours out His grace to us in abundance when we come and sit in front of the tabernacle. Can we wait one hour with Him! We have twenty-four hours a day but we cannot spend one hour and be with Him. The hour of power! The hour that He gives us abundant graces. We are too busy for the Son of God!

7.  R.  Jesus' agony was so great that His sweat became as great drops of blood upon the ground.

8.  R.  Mary wants to lead us to the deep love of her Son. She wants us to have deep union with Him.

9.  R.  Jesus loves us so much. He gives us Himself, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Eucharist.

10.  Sing:  I Love You Jesus - verse 1

Song:  A Song from Jesus  - refrain

   

Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar

1.  R.  As a little innocent lamb led to the slaughter, they led Jesus to the pillar and they tied Him to the pillar.

2.  R.  Hear the blows as they hit Jesus' back and tore His flesh! Listen! Think of Jesus standing at the pillar and listen. Do you hear the beating of Jesus?

3.  R.  Jesus did not fight back! Jesus accepted all that they gave Him! He came to show us the way.

4.  R.  Jesus loved those who beat Him! Imagine the immense heartache that He suffered knowing that the very men that beat Him were the souls that He loved so dearly. They beat Him to their own exhaustion. Jesus gave His life for these men.

5.  R.  Jesus' body was covered from the top of His head to His feet with bleeding wounds that they had given to Him! But His greatest agonies were not the agonies that He received to His body, but the agonies that He received to His Sacred Heart for all the souls that would reject Him, treat Him indifferently, neglect Him. Many do not even think about Him. Many souls sin continually, many never turn to Jesus!

6.  R.  As He suffered so for our sins, He was comforted by the acts of love that we give to Him today.

7.  R.  Do we realize that Jesus came to this earth and took on a human nature. That He was born a baby for love of us! Do we realize that God the Father sent His only Son into this world so that we could be saved? Do we realize that Jesus, the Son of God, died for us?

8.  R.  Spirit of God, descend upon us! Open our eyes, where we are blind, let us see more with the vision of God.

9.  R.  Spirit of God, fill us with Your grace to know and love God more. Jesus stood at the pillar in a puddle of blood that He shed for love of us!

10.  Then he released Barabbas for them. After having Jesus scourged he handed him over to be crucified. Matthew 27: 26

 

Jesus is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

1.  R.  Jesus' flesh was so wounded! Jesus was so covered with blood and they put on Him a dirty purple robe. They gave Him a scepter to hold. They pounded into His precious head a sharp crown of piercing thorns!

2.  R.  Red blood ran down His face! Jesus was crowned with thorns and bled so for love of us!

3.  R.  We do not know of the immense love that Jesus has for us. He came to this earth. He took on a human nature for love of us. He suffered through the Passion and shed blood! He calls us to come and spend time with Him. He is a burning furnace of endless love waiting to be so close to us. They spit on Him. They hollered at Him. Jesus took everything that they did to Him. He came to show us the way, to love those that persecute us. We complain many times when He gives us crosses.

4.  R.  Jesus wants us to meditate on His life and the life of His Mother so that we will more and more live the mysteries. Live the mysteries of His life!

5.  R.  Live the mysteries of the rosary in our daily lives. Our lives should be centered around the lives of Jesus and Mary. We should ask ourselves, "Would Jesus act this way?"

6.  R.  Jesus' way is not easy. Many times we say "This is too hard." We think we do not have to love that person. We complain about a person. How would Jesus treat that person?

7.  R.  Jesus took all the treatment that they gave to Him. He was the King of Kings! He was the Son of God! They spit on God!

8.  Jesus' way is the way of love, He is love, always love! He showed us how He treated those who persecuted Him and put Him to death! He always loved! He did not fight back. He loved those men dearly that scoffed at Him, that hit Him, that poked at Him. They finally crucified Him to His death!

9.  Song:  Crown Him with Many Crowns

10.  R.  Holy Spirit, transform us more into the image of Jesus so that we may be led closer to the Father.

Song:  Only this I want, but to know the Lord

  

Jesus Carries His Cross

1.  R.  They stood around Jesus! They poked at Him! He stood there with His hands tied, a look of perfect peace on His face! A look of such hatred and anger on their faces, poking at Jesus! But Jesus was at perfect peace. He knew the love of His Father!

2.  R.  They gave to Jesus a heavy cross that they put on His shoulder. It was so heavy that it felt as if His shoulder would break! He carried His cross without complaining. What does He ask of us? To carry our cross. "God, that is too hard", we may say. I could not do that! He walked with His cross on His back. He tells us to follow Him. We must be loving and carry our cross in love.

3.  R.  He died. He rose on the third day! In our sufferings we die and rise to new life, if we suffer with Him.

4.  R.  The same child Mary held in her arms was covered with blood and crowned with thorns. Mary watched Him with a cross on His back! See through her eyes! Jesus Christ, the Son of God, walked with this cross on His back for greatest love of us. He loves us this much. He wants us to come ever closer to His Most Sacred Heart, the Heart of endless, burning love.

5.  R.  Mary's eyes peered into the eyes of her Beloved Son Jesus. She saw Him in all His sufferings, and He saw her in all her sufferings. See through Mary's eyes! Put yourself there as He carried the cross on His back! Put yourself there and see the blood running down His face! Put yourself there and see Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Who walked with the weight of the sins of the world on His back for love of us!

6.  Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

7.  R.  Mary wants us to draw ever closer to her Son. The more we grow in union with Him, the more we become one in Him, the more He operates through us. He wants to be one in us! He wants to love through us!

8.  R.  See Mary, see her as she watches her Son! She cannot help Jesus, her Beloved Child! Mary is our Mother, she leads us to Jesus. We must shine as lights in this world.

9.  R.  See through the eyes of Jesus' beloved Mother Mary. Jesus Christ, who loves us with the most tender Heart. He wants us to be ever closer to the burning furnace of His Heart on fire for love of us. He loves us so dearly. We seek. We wander. We roam. We look for all those things to fill us when the only thing that fills the hungry soul is the love of God.

10.  Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

  

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1.  R.  See Mary as she holds the child Jesus in her arms and looks at His tender hands and feet. See Mary now as she stands under the cross and watches. She sees the nails they had pounded into His hands and feet.

2.  R.  Jesus and Mary's Hearts are the two Hearts of immense love! Mary has such love for each one of us! She suffered so! We cannot even imagine what it would be like to stand under the cross of our beloved son and watch him hang for three agonizing hours to his death!

3.  R.  Mary loves each one of us so much. Jesus loves us so much. Jesus longs and thirsts and waits for us to come and be with Him in front of the tabernacle. In our busy lives many do not make time to be alone with Jesus. Jesus is the Son of God! But He waits and longs for us.

4.  R.  Jesus is the Son of God! He gave His life for each one of us! He died on the cross! He gave His flesh! He gave His Blood! But He gives Himself today. God gives Himself to us creatures! He gives Himself to us to be in such union with Him in the Eucharist and we treat this so lightly. Jesus is truly God! He gives Himself to us and we run from His altar and take His presence so lightly!

5.  R.  Spirit, descend on us! Open our eyes so that we may see more and more as He sees. Jesus is truly present in the consecrated host.

6.  R.  Holy Spirit descend upon us! Open up our hearts. Fill us with Your wisdom and knowledge and Your understanding so that we may know more the things of God.

7.  R.  Jesus gave the last drop of His Blood and the last beat of His Heart! They punctured His head with sharp thorns! They pounded into His hands and into His feet gigantic nails! He gave His Body and His Blood. He gave His all for love of us. In total surrender, He spread His arms. Jesus asks us to love. He gave His all for love of us. He gave us so much. How can we turn away? How can we judge our brothers and hate our brothers? See Jesus as He hangs on the cross. He gave the last drop of His Blood and the last beat of His Heart for love of us. God sent His only Son into the world. We are all brothers in Christ. Jesus died for our brothers too.

8.  R.  Jesus hung to His death. They took His body down and handed His lifeless body to His Mother. Mary held the child Jesus in the Temple when Simeon prophesied that she and Jesus would suffer. She held that tender little baby and knew from that time on of the immense sufferings to come. Every time she looked at Jesus, she knew He would suffer. They gave Mary the blood-covered body of Jesus under the cross. Jesus gave His all. Mary suffered and Jesus suffered. He showed us the way to comply to the will of the Father. For to His death, He did the father's will. Mary always compiled to the will of the Father. It is in living according to the Father's will that we will all be happy. God wants us to be one. The Father created each one of us uniquely special with such love. He has had a plan from the day we were born for each and every one of us. He calls out to us today to join ourselves ever closer to the Heart of Jesus Christ for it is in this union that we will be led closer and closer to the love of the Father!

9.  Song:  At the Cross her Station keeping

10.  Song:  Were You There

This rosary was prayed before the statue of Our Lady of Sorrows just prior to the Friday evening prayer service at the Holy Spirit Center. A large group participated in the rosary. Mary appeared.

My Dear Father

R.  My dear Father,

    I am your child, I come to you, My dear Father, I love you so much. Thank you for Jesus as our Savior. Who am I that you loved me this much? Who am I that you sent Jesus into this world, a little baby, born of the Virgin Mary. Oh God thank You for the gift of Your Son given to us.

    You created me in great love. Help me Father to know more and more, Your will. Help me to live according to Your plan. Help me to be one in You. Thank You for the great gift of Your Son Jesus Christ. Thank You Jesus for giving Yourself to us in the Eucharist. Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.

    I want to grow in greater oneness with You Father and Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Glorious Mysteries

The Resurrection

1.  R.  Jesus was locked in the tomb after His death and on the third day He rose triumphant from the dead. Death has no power over Jesus!

2.  R.  He came to give us life that we might have it to the full!

3.  John 3: 16

For this is how God loved the world: 
he gave his only Son, 
so that everyone who believes in him 
    may not perish 
but may have eternal life.

4.  R.  It is in living in the Father's will that we will be the happiest.

5.  R.  The Father sent His Son to this world. We are sons of the Father! The Father loves us with such immense love.

6.  R.  They locked Jesus in the tomb and He rose on the third day. He rose triumphant. We live the Paschal Mystery of death/resurrection.

7.  R.  The Church is the Body of Christ. We are living in communities. The Trinity is the most perfect community. God intends us to walk hand-in-hand with each other.

8.  R.  We share in His life through the sacraments. He gave the Apostles the power to baptize and to forgive sins. In Baptism we are made children of God and heirs of Heaven.

9.  R.  Our human nature is elevated through baptism.

10.  R.  Our knowing and loving capacity is elevated.

The Ascension

1.  Then he took them out as far as the outskirts of Bethany, and raising his hands he blessed them. Now as he blessed them, he withdrew from them and was carried up to heaven.  Luke 24: 50-51

2.  As he said this he was lifted up while they looked on, and a cloud took him from their sight. They were still staring into the sky as he went, when suddenly two men in white were standing beside them, and they said, ‘Why are you Galileans standing here looking into the sky? This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven will come back in the same way as you have seen him go to heaven.’  Acts 1: 9-11

3.  R.  The Apostles were fearful. They were so close to Jesus! They saw Jesus! They lived with Jesus! But they were so filled with fear that they went and locked themselves in the upper room. Think of Peter as he denied Jesus three times after he had just told Jesus how He would always be faithful to Him. When we stumble and when we fall and we feel that we are not faithful to Jesus, think of the Apostles and how close they were to Him and how they were still filled with fear and doubt! They were blind. We are human. We are blind. We do not see. Holy Spirit impart to us Your vision. Help us to see more clearly. Give us the gifts of wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety and fear of the Lord to know more all that we need to know to be drawn ever closer to You and know more Your Divine Love.

4.  R.  Jesus has not gone! He remains with us this day out of greatest love in the Eucharist.

Song:  I Love You Jesus

5.  R.  Jesus gives us Himself in the Eucharist.

6.  R.  How can we love and not love our brothers? For God is truly love and to know Him is to love! We are to love one another.

7.  He is the image of the unseen God, the first–born of all creation, for in him were created all things in heaven and on earth: everything visible and everything invisible, thrones, ruling forces, sovereignties, powers—all things were created through him and for him. He exists before all things and in him all things hold together, and he is the Head of the Body, that is, the Church. He is the Beginning, the first–born from the dead, so that he should be supreme in every way; because God wanted all fullness to be found in him and through him to reconcile all things to him, everything in heaven and everything on earth, by making peace through his death on the cross.  Colossians 1: 15-20

8.  R.  These are truly the Glorious Mysteries. Jesus rose triumphantly from the dead and He ascended into Heaven!

9.  R.  Jesus showed them His Power and His Might when He rose from the dead and then ascended into Heaven!

10.  R.  Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to this earth a little baby. Out of greatest love for us, God comes into the world a little baby, He died on the cross, He rose from the dead and He ascended into Heaven.

Descent of the Holy Spirit

1.  John 16: 12-17

    I still have many things to say to you
    but they would be too much for you 
        to bear now.
    However, when the Spirit of truth comes
    he will lead you to the complete truth,
    since he will not be speaking 
        of his own accord,
    but will say only what he has been told;
    and he will reveal to you
        the things to come.
    He will glorify me,
    since all he reveals to you
    will be taken from what is mine.
    Everything the Father has is mine;
    that is why I said:
    all he reveals to you 
    will be taken from what is mine.

    In a short time you will no longer see me,
    and then a short time later
        you will see me again.

     Then some of his disciples said to one another, ‘What does he mean, "In a short time you will no longer see me, and then a short time later you will see me again," and, "I am going to the Father"?

2.  John baptised with water but, not many days from now, you are going to be baptised with the Holy Spirit.’  Acts 1: 5

3.  "When Pentecost day came round, they had all met together, when suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a violent wind which filled the entire house in which they were sitting; and there appeared to them tongues as of fire; these separated and came to rest on the head of each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak different languages as the Spirit gave them power to express themselves.   Acts 2: 1-4

4.  R.  They were transformed from fear to fearlessness and they went out to preach the Gospel and all understood!

5.  R.  The Father loves us so that He has created us in His own image and likeness. Dear Holy Spirit, through the Virgin Mary, transform us more into the image of Jesus. We want to be more one with You God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

6.   Excerpt from Response to God's Love, by Father Edward Carter, S.J.

    ...In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

    The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ. St. Paul tells us: "I became a minister of this Church through the commission God gave me to preach among you his word in its fullness, that mystery hidden from ages and generations past but now revealed to his holy ones. God has willed to make known to them the glory beyond price which this mystery brings to the Gentiles—the mystery of Christ in you, your hope of glory. This is the Christ we proclaim while we admonish all men and teach them in the full measure of wisdom, hoping to make every man complete in Christ" (Col 1:25-28).

7.  Mold us more and more into the image of Jesus. Jesus Christ became man, the mediator of God and man. Jesus has summarized Christian life as love.

For this is how God loved the world: 
he gave his only Son, 
so that everyone who believes in him 
    may not perish 
but may have eternal life.    John 3: 16

8.  R.  Jesus gives us Himself in the Eucharist.

The Assumption of Mary into Heaven 

1.  R.  Mary is taken body and soul into heaven.

2.  R.  Imagine the immense joy!

3.  R.  It is through consecration to these two Most loving Hearts that we will be more able to do God's will and grow in greater holiness. We want to love the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit more and more.

4.  R.  The most perfect community is the Trinity.

5.  R.  It is in joining more and more to the love of the Trinity that we will be filled with love in our hearts.

6.  R.  Jesus communicates to us His great love in the Eucharist and pours out His grace. Jesus gives Himself to us. Jesus takes us to the bosom of the Father.

7.  R.  Father, we are Your little children! Help us to have this relationship with You as sons and daughters of God!

8.  R.  Mary was born a human person conceived without sin. She is the most perfect disciple of Jesus. Dear Holy Spirit, transform us in the Heart of the Virgin Mary to be more like Jesus!

9.  R.  God loves us so much that He created us in His own image and likeness.

10.  R.  Outpour Your abundant grace to us that we may be more likened to you and live in deeper love.

The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth

1.  Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.  Revelation 12: 1

2.  Song:  Immaculate Mary

3.  R.  Heaven is our true home! Jesus died so we could go to heaven someday if we love and serve God and keep His commands.

4.  R.  Death has no power over Jesus.

5.  R.  Dear Holy Spirit, remove the blinders from our eyes so that we may see. God runs the world and our every breath and our every heartbeat depends on God. Help us to see and know what is real.

6.  Song:  A Song from Jesus

7.  R.  As she comes as Our Lady of Light, she comes to tell us that we will light the world through the love of her Most Precious Son.

8.  R.  Jesus is the Light of the World! He is the source of Life and Love! God has all the power!

9.  R.  And the light shone brightest in the darkest night! Look to the Light for the light!

Jesus Loves You, We Must Spread the Good News

R.  These messages are not my messages. They are His love letters to this world. We are all called here to help Him to spread them. He is in this world now. He is with me at Frisch’s. God is in our midst this day. We are being called to go out to the world and spread the Good News. Jesus came to this earth, born a baby of the Virgin Mary. Jesus died. He rose on the third day and He will come again!

    Jesus and Mary are sending us into the world to spread the love of Their two Hearts. He is the same as during the Rosary, at a meeting with the three priests, as He was in Debrovnik, as He was at St. Phillips Church, as He was in the pew in Steubenville, Ohio, as He was when He was with me in the parking lot at St. Vincent Ferrer Church. My heart is burning at His presence. He is here in the ordinary occurrences of life, present in this world. He cries out for His message to be spread to this world. His people are in the world. He wants us to carry the message to His beloved souls in this world. He loves each and every one of His precious souls. We must see with the eyes of God. Each soul He loves. He loves each so dearly! He wants to love through us. This world is in pain. We contain the mighty medicine. THESE ARE HIS MESSAGES FOR THE WORLD. 

Jesus:  I send you into the world to give My love to the souls that are hurting. You contain the medicine for this sick world — it is the love of My most Sacred Heart! I call you this day, will you answer My call?

    My letters are My love letters. My personal love letters for this world. I gave My all for each and every precious soul. I gave My flesh and Blood for them. I came to bring life. Can you not give My love to this world? I call you to union with Me. Surrender. Let Me operate your soul. It is in your surrender and time alone with Me you will go into the world with Me to spread My love to this world. I want to be one with you. If you unite with Me, all will go according to the Father’s Plan.

    I am Jesus. Oh, how I love and thank you, My beloved ones, so dearly. I press you to My Heart, so dearly. I love you!  Jesus. 

R.  Jesus loves all to the poorest beggar. A man hollered in Church at the consecration. I prayed for him and wanted to give him a Blue Book. Jesus died for each and every soul. There is not one person He did not suffer for. We need to reach out to this world, spread His love to each and every soul. Send the books to the prisons, send them to all those who are hurting. Their prayers will help in the salvation of the world. And I went out into the highways and the byways and I beheld there a precious child of God the Father, one of His very own, one of His precious creations, I beheld a most precious child of God, clothed in such dignity because He is a brother of Jesus Christ and a son of the Father. How can we not spread the love of God? How can we screen some people as worthy of this love, others are not as worthy.

Jesus:  You are all children created by My Father, I beg you to reach out to this hurting world. Those who are hurting the most are the hungriest. I beg you to be fearless and spread My love to this world. How can you hold back, love is giving — you must give My love to this world. The very nature of loving is giving, if you are holding back you are not loving. Love all My precious souls, pray for your brothers in pain. Pray, pray, pray for all your brothers. I ask you to love your brothers as I have loved you. I spread My arms, I gave My all, will you Love for Me this day.

Joyful Mysteries
 

The Annunciation

1.  R.  The angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and asked Mary to be the Mother of Jesus.

2.  R.  Mary always compiled to the will of the Father.

3.  Mary said, ‘You see before you the Lord’s servant, let it happen to me as you have said.’ And the angel left her.  Luke 1: 38

4.  R.  We must see Jesus in our brothers that we encounter. We love the poorest beggar. We love all, the persons God created. Jesus came to save every soul. He shed His Blood for each and every soul.

5.  R.  Jesus is in our children! Jesus is in our brothers! We must love every precious soul. Every soul is so precious to the Father.

6.  R.  The Good News is that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is in our midst this day! That the Father sent His only begotten Son into this world out of greatest love for us! Jesus remains with us this day!

7.  R.  There was such intimacy between Jesus and His Mother from the first moment of conception. It was in her womb that the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus was formed.

8.   R.  Mary carried Jesus in her womb. Now He remains with us this day in the Tabernacle, no less present than the day that He was carried in Mary's womb! Jesus Christ, the Son of God, remains in His Divinity and in His humanity out of greatest love for each of us!

9.  Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

10.  R.  Mary carried the child Jesus in her womb. The Son of God, in all His Majesty and Might was carried in Mary's body! Jesus is in the Tabernacle today — Jesus Christ, the Son of God, In all His Majesty.

Song between decades:  The Rosary Song - refrain & verse

   


 

The Visitation

1.  R.  Mary went to visit her cousin Elizabeth. The angel had told Mary that Elizabeth had conceived a son in her old age.

2.  Now it happened that as soon as Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. She gave a loud cry and said, ‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord? Look, the moment your greeting reached my ears, the child in my womb leapt for joy. Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.’  Luke 1: 41-45

3.  R.  The servant usually goes to the Master. Jesus comes to us. Jesus calls us His friends! Jesus went to visit Elizabeth in Mary's womb. The Master goes to visit Elizabeth. Out of greatest love for us, Jesus comes to us! He is God!

4.  R.  Out of greatest love for us, the Father created us. Who are we that He loves us so much?

5.  R.  And look at the darkened world! God is so good to us! God outpours His gifts to us! Yet many people are not happy! They want to be gods themselves. Some want to be equal to God!

6.  R.  Jesus commands that we put Him first above all things! In His goodness, the Father created us. He gives us so many gifts. We receive a sharing in His Divine Life through Baptism. Man is greedy and selfish many times. We must be thankful for the gift of Jesus in the Eucharist.

7.  R.  The babe in Elizabeth's womb leapt for joy at the sight of Mary at the presence of Jesus in Mary's womb.

8.  R.  John the Baptist jumped even before His birth in the womb of His Mother with greatest joy. Why do we not jump for joy to know that God is truly present with us, present the same as the day He was in Mary's womb when she visited her cousin Elizabeth?

9.  R.  And Mary was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out in a loud voice the Magnificat.

10.  because he has looked upon
    the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
    all generations will call me blessed,   Luke 1: 48

R.  Cry out the Good News! For Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is truly in our midst this day! He comes to tell us that He calls us His soldiers, to go out into the world to spread His love. For this world is hurting and in deep pain. His love given to cure this hurting world, the love of His Most Sacred Heart! He is God. He loves souls so dearly, that He shed His Blood and died a brutal death on the cross to bring us new life! Let us shout the Good News from the roof tops.

The Birth of Jesus

1.  R.  See a little baby! God does not come adorned in majesty. He comes as a little baby into this world. Jesus is the Son of God!

2.  R.  Jesus is the mediator between the Father and us in all things. Jesus Christ came into the world. He was born a Son of Mary! Jesus Christ is the Son of God! Jesus, a Divine Person, has a human nature and a Divine nature.

3.  R.  Jesus is our Savior. We share in His Divine Life in a special way through Baptism.

4.  Song:  O Come Let Us Adore Him

5.  R.  Jesus loves us. Jesus is ignored and forgotten by many. His Heart is burning and on fire for His precious souls. Jesus was born in poverty in Bethlehem and Jesus died on the cross for love of us. He rose on the third day that we might share in His life.

6.  R.  Many hearts are so dark with hate and anger. Many have forgotten God. We must try to grow in deeper oneness with Jesus that He will touch hearts through our love.

7.  Song:  Silent Night

8.  Song:  What Child is This

9.  Song:  A Song from Jesus

10.  R.  Open our hearts and help us to grow in greater purity. We want to forever dwell in your Hearts, oh Jesus and Mary. May your love burn away the hardness of hearts in the world. May you operate in souls to spread your love to the world.

The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple

1.  And when the day came for them to be purified in keeping with the Law of Moses, they took him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord—observing what is written in the Law of the Lord: Every first–born male must be consecrated to the Lord—and also to offer in sacrifice, in accordance with what is prescribed in the Law of the Lord, a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeonsLuke 2: 22-24

2.  R.  It is through the sacrament of Baptism that we are made children of God and heirs of Heaven.

Do you not realise that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you and whom you received from God?  1 Corinthians 6: 19

3.  R.  We have a special sharing in His life through Baptism. Our human nature is elevated in baptism. We can love more deeply through the gift of Baptism!

Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations; baptise them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all the commands I gave you. And look, I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.’  Matthew 28: 19-20

4. R.  Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Jesus is the greatest teacher. He imparts to us His truths as we sit before the tabernacle. He reveals insights into the Mysteries in the hearts of those who love Him. Great truths are revealed to the hearts after the reception of the Eucharist and when sitting before the tabernacle when we are most intimately united to Him.

5.  Luke 2: 25-35

Now in Jerusalem there was a man named Simeon. He was an upright and devout man; he looked forward to the restoration of Israel and the Holy Spirit rested on him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death until he had set eyes on the Christ of the Lord. Prompted by the Spirit he came to the Temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the Law required, he took him into his arms and blessed God; and he said:

    Now, Master, you are letting
        your servant go in peace
    as you promised;
    for my eyes have seen the salvation
    which you have made ready
        in the sight of the nations; |
    a light of revelation for the gentiles
    and glory for your people Israel.

As the child’s father and mother were wondering at the things that were being said about him, Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, ‘Look, he is destined for the fall and for the rise of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is opposed—and a sword will pierce your soul too—so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare.’ 

Sing:  The Rosary Song

6.  It happened that, three days later, they found him in the Temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them, and asking them questions; and all those who heard him were astounded at his intelligence and his replies.  Luke 2: 46-47

R.  Jesus is the greatest teacher. We pray to the Holy Spirit to give to us the gifts of wisdom, understanding, knowledge, counsel, fortitude, piety and fear of the Lord. Open our eyes, oh Spirit of God, that where we were blind we will now see insights into the Divine Mysteries.

    God reveals Himself most intimately to us after Communion and before the tabernacle. He implants secrets of His intimate love into our hearts. He loves us so much.

7.  R.  Although there is darkness on the earth the Light of Christ lives especially in the hearts of His faithful ones. He dwells in us in a special way when we are baptized and remain in the state of grace. We must keep our hearts ever pure.

8.  R.  Mary suffered from this prophesy of Simeon. Whenever she looked at Jesus she remembered the prophecy of Simeon.

9.  R.  And how she suffered! Especially through the Passion! We have no idea of the immense pain and heartache that she experienced! We see her immense love for us all through the Passion. She stood so close to Jesus! Mary is the Mediatrix of all grace! It is through Mary that we are led ever closer to the Heart of Jesus!

10.  R.  The two Hearts of immense Love! Mary's was pierced with a sword! Jesus' was pierced with a lance. It is through this Heart pierced with a lance that the Church was born!

The Finding of Jesus in the Temple

1.  R.  Jesus was taken up to the Temple when He was twelve years old for the feast of the Passover.

2.  R.  And when Mary and Joseph left, they did not realize they had left Jesus behind.

3.  R.  When they realized what had happened, they returned with their hearts in such sorrow to find the child Jesus.

4.  R.  Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Jesus is the greatest teacher. He imparts to us His truths as we sit before the tabernacle. He reveals insights into the hidden mysteries in the hearts of those who love Him. Great truths are revealed to the heart after the reception of the Eucharist and when sitting before the tabernacle when we are most intimately united to Him.

5.  R.  Jesus outpours His grace abundantly to those who love Him in the Sacrament of the Eucharist. Jesus outpours His grace to those who come and sit with Him in front of the tabernacle. He longs for us to love Him. He wants us to come to be so close to His Most Sacred Heart for He is burning and on fire for love of each precious soul.

6.  R.  Jesus is the greatest teacher. We pray to the Holy Spirit to give us the gifts of wisdom, understanding, knowledge, counsel, fortitude, piety and fear of the Lord. Open our eyes Oh Spirit of God that where we were blind we will now see insight into the Divine Mysteries. God reveals Himself most intimately to us after Communion and before the tabernacle. He implants secrets of His intimate love into our hearts. He loves us so much.

7.  R.  Even though darkness may cover the earth, the Light of Christ is shining in the hearts of those who are most faithful to God. God is alive and lives in our hearts when we are baptized and remain in the state of grace. We must keep our hearts ever pure.

8.  R.  The Virgin Mary always complied with the will of the Father. Help us to have a special relationship with Our Heavenly Father where we are one with Him, living according to His will.

9.  R.  The Father's will. It is in doing the Father's will that we will find peace and joy.

10.  R.  The Father has a plan for each of us. The Father created us with special gifts and talents to do His work. He intends us to live according to His will.

    It is in finding what He wants us to do that we will be most happy. We must surrender. We must go to the Heart of Jesus and dwell there. Jesus waits for us to share His love with us. Jesus waits for us to come in the Eucharist. Jesus wants us to tell Him we love Him.

This rosary was prayed before the Tabernacle in the Holy Spirit Chapel. Rita and her children and Marty were present. Jesus appeared.

      

February 14, 1995

You Are Not Alone

Jesus:  I am Jesus, Son of the Living God, you will know such trials, but I will hold you up. I will watch you and you will grow ever closer to Me. I will be so close to you in these trials.

    Rita, let go, you must release yourself. I want to do My work through you. YOU ARE NOT ALONE - I AM OPERATING YOU.

R.  A voice cries out in the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord. How can we who have such good news remain speechless about God — Go into the highways and the byways and preach the good news, we are being called to prepare the way of the Lord.

    God calls us to obedience, He took away Zechariah's voice. Zechariah told them his name will be John. God allows us to experience blocks sometimes. We must do the will of the Father. He took my voice away.

    From the day we are born, God has been with us. Before we were born He knew us.

    Jesus was carried in Mary's womb. Mary is a woman, Jesus was conceived in her womb through the Holy Spirit.

    Woman must be respected, Mary is our model, so pure, so obedient to the Father's will.

    We must live in His will, as a little child obeying His Father.

    The Lady is calling.

    We are given a special sharing in His life through the sacrament of baptism. We grow in greater life in Him.

    He took Zechariah's voice away, I was teaching math — he wants us to go out and spread the good news.

    The Church is in the state of becoming.

    He came as a baby, born of the Virgin Mary.

    In all His Majesty — He comes as a baby.

    He comes to us in love.

    Christ had a human body, blood like ours — Jesus takes us to His Heavenly Father.

John 14: 6

Jesus said:

I am the Way; I am Truth and Life.
No one can come to the Father
   except through me.

Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; 1 Corinthians 15: 22

R.  Jesus stands night and day knocking at the door of our hearts, knocking and wanting entrance "Behold I stand at the door of your hearts and knock." Jesus gives us His grace.

    He calls us to action.

    LOVE IS ACTION FROM THE HEART.

    HIS LOVE IS A MIGHTY FORCE TOO POWERFUL TO BE CONTAINED.

    HE CALLS US TO DIE TO SELF — LIVE IN HIM.

    POWER IS IN THE EUCHARISTIC HEART OF JESUS through Mary's heart.

    Song:  I Love You Jesus

Jesus:  SURRENDER, SURRENDER, SURRENDER.

    GO TO THE TABERNACLE, YOUR ANSWERS ARE FOUND THERE.

    I CALL, I PLEAD, SPREAD MY LOVE THIS DAY.

 

Resurrection

Song:  Now We Remain

R.  We cannot do it without Him. They were afraid after His death they locked themselves in a room. They knew Jesus, they lived with Him, they were afraid.

    Blessed are they who have not seen and have believed. 

Luke 24: 13-35

Now that very same day, two of them were on their way to a village called Emmaus, seven miles from Jerusalem, and they were talking together about all that had happened. And it happened that as they were talking together and discussing it, Jesus himself came up and walked by their side; but their eyes were prevented from recognising him. He said to them, ‘What are all these things that you are discussing as you walk along?’ They stopped, their faces downcast. 

    Then one of them, called Cleopas, answered him, ‘You must be the only person staying in Jerusalem who does not know the things that have been happening there these last few days.’ He asked, ‘What things?’ They answered, ‘All about Jesus of Nazareth, who showed himself a prophet powerful in action and speech before God and the whole people; and how our chief priests and our leaders handed him over to be sentenced to death, and had him crucified. Our own hope had been that he would be the one to set Israel free. And this is not all: two whole days have now gone by since it all happened; and some women from our group have astounded us: they went to the tomb in the early morning, and when they could not find the body, they came back to tell us they had seen a vision of angels who declared he was alive. Some of our friends went to the tomb and found everything exactly as the women had reported, but of him they saw nothing.’ 

    Then he said to them, ‘You foolish men! So slow to believe all that the prophets have said! Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer before entering into his glory?’ Then, starting with Moses and going through all the prophets, he explained to them the passages throughout the scriptures that were about himself. 

    When they drew near to the village to which they were going, he made as if to go on; but they pressed him to stay with them saying, ‘It is nearly evening, and the day is almost over.’ So he went in to stay with them. Now while he was with them at table, he took the bread and said the blessing; then he broke it and handed it to them. And their eyes were opened and they recognised him; but he had vanished from their sight. Then they said to each other, ‘Did not our hearts burn within us as he talked to us on the road and explained the scriptures to us?’ 

    They set out that instant and returned to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven assembled together with their companions, who said to them, ‘The Lord has indeed risen and has appeared to Simon.’ Then they told their story of what had happened on the road and how they had recognised him at the breaking of bread.

R.  They did not recognize Jesus, how many times do I not recognize Jesus.

Song:  Look beyond the Bread you eat

Matthew 16: 17-19

Jesus replied, ‘Simon son of Jonah, you are a blessed man! Because it was no human agency that revealed this to you but my Father in heaven. So I now say to you: You are Peter and on this rock I will build my community. And the gates of the underworld can never overpower it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven: whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.’  It is through baptism we are made children of God and heirs of heaven.

 

Ascension

R.  He came to give us life that we might have it to the full — He gives us Himself. God gives us His Word, He gives us each other. Love God. Souls are hungry, they are starving for His love, go out to the highways and the byways, go into the world — He died for each and every soul, how can I hold my arms closed across my chest when I know the good news. Christ has died, He has risen, He will come again. Jesus remains with us this day in His Divinity and humanity. Spread the good news to this world.

Song: I am the Bread of Life

R.  We too will be united to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in heaven soon if we do what God wants us to do, spread the good news, souls will be lost.

 

Descent of the Holy Spirit

R.  Holy Spirit transform me into fearlessness.

    Spread the Gospel.

    You are all brothers in Christ.

    Christ is Mediator between us and the Father.

    He gives us a special sharing of His life in baptism. God is with us this day. Spread the love of Jesus burning Heart.

 

Assumption

R.  Mary remained on the earth many years after Jesus ascended into heaven. Mary was taken into heaven. We remain on this earth, we will someday be in heaven if we love and serve God as He desires.

    Fight a good fight.

Song:  Eyes has not Seen

R.  It is through Her heart we are led so closely to the Heart of Jesus.

    Mary hold us so tenderly in your arms and place us in the heart of Jesus.

    Mary is our spiritual Mother. Mary mother's us and leads us to Christ.

Joyful Mysteries  

The Annunciation

1.  R.  See the young Mary and see the angel as the angel appears to Mary and asks Mary to be the Mother of Jesus!

2.  R.  Mary was the most kind and gentle virgin!

3.  Mary had such faith and trust and love of God! 

Mary said, ‘You see before you the Lord’s servant, let it happen to me as you have said.’ And the angel left her.  Luke 1: 38

4. 

My soul proclaims
    the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
    in God my Saviour;  Luke 1: 46-47

5.  R.  Mary is our model to follow. Mary always followed the will of the Father!

6.  R.  Jesus was conceived in Mary's womb, Jesus is God! Jesus is a Divine Person with two natures: a human nature and a Divine nature.

7.   John 3: 16

For this is how God loved the world:
he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him
    may not perish
but may have eternal life.   

8.  R.  Who are we that God loved us so much that He became man out of greatest love for us?

9.  R.  God is so good to us! Jesus is the mediator between the Father and us.

10.  In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption.

The Visitation

1.  R.  The angel had told Mary that her cousin Elizabeth was with child in her old age. So Mary made haste to the hill country to visit her cousin Elizabeth. Her heart was bursting over with the good news that Jesus was in her womb!

2.  Now it happened that as soon as Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. She gave a loud cry and said, ‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord?   Luke 1: 41-43

3.  R.  The child in Elizabeth's womb leapt for joy at the sight of Mary and Jesus in Mary's womb!

4. 

He went through the whole Jordan area proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, as it is written in the book of the sayings of Isaiah the prophet:

 A voice of one that cries in the desert:
 Prepare a way for the Lord,
 make his paths straight!
 Let every valley be filled in,
 every mountain and hill be levelled,
 winding ways be straightened
 and rough roads made smooth,
 and all humanity
    will see the salvation of God.  
Luke 3: 3-6

5.  R.  The Lady is calling us this day. She's calling us to spread the news of the love of her Son throughout this world. Do not take this call so lightly for she truly comes to you this night to tell you that she is calling to you individually, each and every one of you present. This is her call, her personal call to you to take this plea with seriousness, for souls will be lost. How can we stand with our arms closed in front of us when we know His immense love, when we know that there are so many souls in this world that are hurting that need His immense love!

6.  Song:  Our Lady of Medjugorje

7.  R.  Mary told me this morning that she wanted all at the Shepherds of Christ meeting to sing the above song. She is truly calling us to take her cry so seriously. She is asking us to open up our hearts as Jesus stands at the door of our heart this day, knocking and knocking, and we must let Him in. Then we will spread the love of Jesus throughout this world when we open up our heart to Him.

8.  R.  For His love is a light that shines in the darkness. His love is vibrancy that radiates from our eyes and our being. Mary calls out to us, if we have ears to hear. She has called us here to spread the love of her Son throughout this world!

9.  R.  Mary carried the child Jesus within her womb, Jesus in all His Majesty and Might! Truly God within the womb of Mary! He remains with us this day in the Tabernacle, no less present than the day that she carried Him in her womb. Jesus is waiting for us to outpour to us His abundant grace, to fill us with His love! Come to the Tabernacle! Be ever so close to Jesus' burning Heart!

10.  R.  The time is now! The place is set! We are the apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus! Mary is calling to us to come to the two Hearts, to know the immense love that Mary and Jesus have for us and to go into this world to the people that are next to us at your work, to the people that are next to us where we eat lunch! Wherever we are, these are the souls that Jesus came to save! These are the souls that Jesus gave His flesh and His blood for and He asks us to spread His love to each and every soul. Open our arms wide as Jesus opened His arms when He died on the cross! Do not hold our arms crossed in front of our body. Talk about Jesus' love in this world! Pray for the fearlessness that the Spirit can give to us. Take this call so seriously for souls will be lost and condemned to eternal damnation despite Jesus' death and resurrection.

The Birth of Jesus

1.  R.  The Father so loved us that He sent His only begotten Son into the world born of the Virgin Mary. Look at a little baby! God loved us so much that He came into this world a little baby! All His Might and Majesty! God came a little baby in the womb of Mary.

2.  R.  Jesus, in His Divinity and His humanity, remains with us this day in the Eucharist, the same as the day He was born in the manger in Bethlehem! Jesus is present in the Tabernacle here, the same Jesus Christ that hung on the cross! The same Jesus that walked and talked! Jesus is with us this day and He calls out to us to come to Him and realize His presence!

3.  R.  Every time we receive Jesus in the Eucharist within our bodies, we are receiving the same Jesus that died on the cross, the same Jesus that rose from the dead!

4.  R.  Jesus came in such quietness in the town of Bethlehem. The angels sang! There was not a roll of drums or a blare of trumpets! We walk the aisle to receive Him in communion and the only roll of drums and blare of trumpets are those in our hearts! Are we aware of the fact that this is truly God that we receive! That this is the same Jesus that walked the earth with a cross on His back? He wants us to know that it is truly Jesus! Jesus said to tell you: I am the same Jesus that carried the cross on My back and they run from the church!

5.  R.  Jesus came in such poverty and He died hanging on a cross! He came to show us the way! He took the nature of a man because He loves us so much! Who are we that God comes to us? It is only in His great love that He comes to us!

The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple

1.  R.  Jesus was taken up to the Temple and the old man, Simeon, was there. He had been told by the Holy Spirit that he would not die until he had seen the Messiah. He saw Joseph and Mary and Jesus enter the Temple. Simeon went over and held Jesus and he said: Now I am ready to die.

2.  R.  But he told Mary and Joseph of the immense sufferings that Jesus and Mary would go through. And he said to Mary that a sword, too, shall pierce your heart!

3.  R.  From that point on when Mary looked at the infant child, when she looked at Jesus all through His life, she knew of the sufferings that He would suffer.

4.  R.  It is through Baptism that we are made children of God and heirs of Heaven, that we share in a special way in His Divine Life. Baptism is a great gift!!

5.  R.  It is through Baptism that our human nature is elevated to such heights!

6.  R.  If we are baptized and remain in the state of grace, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within us in such a special way. Who are we that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within us?

7.  R.  Who are we that God loves us so much and that He is so good to us?

The Finding of Jesus in the Temple

1.  R.  When Jesus was twelve years old, Mary and Joseph took Him up to the Temple for the feast of the Passover!

2.  R.  When Joseph and Mary had left the child Jesus remained behind!

3.  R.  Their hearts in such sorrowing, they returned to the Temple in search of the child Jesus!

4.  R.  Mary is so beautiful and she wants you to know that she is here with us in such a special way — all white - so beautiful!

5.  R.  When they found Jesus, He was teaching the doctors in the Temple!

6.  R.  Jesus wants to teach us! He wants us to realize how much He loves us! He wants us to come to the Tabernacle and to sit in front of Him. He teaches us in our hearts His Divine Truths when we come and sit with Him. Sit in silence and let Him instruct you as He instructed the doctors in the Temple!

7.  R.  Read His Word in the Holy Scripture! Jesus feeds us with the Eucharist and His Word.

8.  R.  Jesus feeds us with the Eucharist. Jesus gives to us His Body and His Blood to feed us!

9.  R.  Jesus gives to us one another.

10.  The Mystery of Christ and Christian Existence  

...In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

    The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ. St. Paul tells us: "I became a minister of this Church through the commission God gave me to preach among you his word in its fullness, that mystery hidden from ages and generations past but now revealed to his holy ones. God has willed to make known to them the glory beyond price which this mystery brings to the Gentiles—the mystery of Christ in you, your hope of glory. This is the Christ we proclaim while we admonish all men and teach them in the full measure of wisdom, hoping to make every man complete in Christ" (Col 1:25-28).

4.  Jesus and Mary's Eyes Peered into one another's on Calvary.   R.  The union of the two Hearts. Jesus' Heart was pierced with a lance! Mary's heart was pierced invisibly with a sword! The immense love that these two Hearts have for us! The intimacy between these two Hearts! The more that we unite with Mary, the closer we become to the Heart of Jesus. Dear Holy Spirit, please transform us within the heart of Mary to be more and more like Jesus! And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

 

5.  Jesus Died on the Cross and Mary stood beneath the Cross.   R.  We are brought to new life through Jesus' death. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

 

6.  Mary under the Cross Received the lifeless body of her Son.   R.  Mary held the child Jesus so tenderly in her arms as a baby, Mary now received Jesus' battered, bloody body totally lifeless to hold in her arms! And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

 

7.  They locked Jesus in the Tomb.   R.  His enemies were so happy that they had won! And Mary wept outside the tomb. But death has no power over Jesus for on the third day, through the power of the Holy Spirit, He rose triumphant from the tomb! Jesus gave us a sharing in His life through baptism — His Divine Life! His Divine Love! Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to this earth, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered and died and rose on the third day that we might share in this Divine Life! And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

And the heart of the Virgin Mary, whose heart was pierced so many times for love of her Beloved Son, calls out to us from this heart to take this as an urgent call from her. Be about your relationship with her Son, Jesus. For if you are united to Jesus, you are more likely to live in the Father's will for us. Mary told me today to bring the song, The Lady of Medjugorje, because she had a special plea for you. This is her plea! Come to the Eucharistic Heart of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It is a burning furnace of endless love on fire for us. The more we unite with Jesus, the more we become one in God. The more God will operate from us to touch the hearts of so many souls - souls that may be lost if we do not spread His love. Mary calls out to us, our Spiritual Mother. It is in Baptism that we were born to new life. Mary wants us to grow deeper and deeper in our life in Him. For it is in union with her Son, Jesus, that we will achieve everlasting life. We want to be forever united in the courts of Heaven with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in deepest union. Your union in Heaven depends upon your union here on earth. The deeper our union here, the deeper our union in Heaven. Heaven is a place that we cannot imagine.

Song:  Eye has not Seen

 

This rosary was prayed before the statue of Our Lady of Sorrows at the Shepherds of Christ meeting. Mary appeared through out the entire rosary. Mary was brilliant and was illuminated during the entire rosary. Rita saw her as white! Jesus also appeared.

Before the Exposed Eucharist

Sorrowful Mysteries  

The Agony in the Garden

1.  R.  Be with Jesus in the Garden and hear the sounds of the night. See Jesus as He kneels there!

2.  R.  Jesus' Heart in such anguish for all the souls that He loves so dearly! He sees before Him all the souls that would be condemned to eternal damnation despite all of His suffering and His death!

3.  R.  Jesus sees before Him all the sins of all men from all time.

4.  R.  Jesus' Heart was overwhelmed with love for each and every soul. He sees the  souls who would go through their whole life and not even think about Him, treat Him with indifference and ignore Him!

5.  R.  Jesus was comforted by the acts of love that we give to Him this day.

6.  R.  Jesus saw the endless hours that He would remain in the Tabernacle and the souls that He loved so dearly who would not come and be with Him.

7.  R.  We do not understand the Heart of Jesus! How He, Who is love, loves us so much! Therefore we cannot understand His anguish to love each and every soul so dearly and to know these souls would neglect Him and be so sinful throughout their lives.

8.  R.  Jesus cries out to His Father: If it be  possible to take this cup from Me, but not My will but Thine be done!

9.  R.  Jesus' anguish was so great that His sweat became as great drops of blood upon the ground!

10.  R.  Jesus' apostles slept! He says to us this day: I give you twenty-four hours in the day. Can you not watch with Me one hour?

Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar

1.  R.  Cruelly, Jesus was led away! They hit Him! They pulled His hair! They tied Him to a pillar!

2.  R.  Men came at Jesus with their angry faces and their angry hearts and beat Him. They laughed! They tore His flesh!

3.  R.  Put yourself there in the dim light and see as they mercilessly beat Jesus to their own exhaustion.

4.  R.  Be silent and listen as they hit Jesus' back! Hear the sounds! This is our beloved Jesus Who loves with a Heart that is burning with love for us. He stood at the pillar and did not cry out. He took all the blows that they gave to Him because He loves us with the greatest love.

5.  R.  Could we love someone so much that we would allow them to beat our body to tear our flesh! Could we stand silently?

6. R.  Jesus' greatest agonies were not the agonies that He experienced to His body but the agonies that He experienced to His Heart. To love us this much and to be treated coldly day after day after day by the world as it is! The world that does not even think of Jesus!

7.  R.  Jesus is with us this day. He loves us so much - He lives in us when we are baptized and remain in the state of grace. Jesus remains with us this day in His Divinity and humanity in the Eucharist. The same Jesus who stood at the pillar when they tore His flesh, remains with us this day in this room out of greatest love for us. He calls out to us to take this seriously. He loves us so much. He is in our midst this very day waiting for us to come and share our love with Him.

8.  R.  Time! Time, we say! We do not have time! The Son of God waits for us! He longs for us! He thirsts for us! He wants us to come and to spend time with Him so He can outpour His gifts to us. How many times do we say we do not have time for You! And You are God!

9.  R.  Jesus waits! He longs! He thirsts! He cries out to a world that has plugged up their ears, that has covered their eyes, that looks the other way, that does not see God in their brother. He calls out to us for close union with Him so that He can give His love through us to love this world that is hurting. He calls out to us to come and be close to Him, to share His love so that we may give His love this day to the beloved souls that He loves in this dark world.

10.  R.  Does God's plea fall on deaf ears? Do we close our eyes and look the other way when we truly know that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is here present in this room with us and is calling out to each one of us? He loves us tenderly and longs for closer and closer union with us. He calls out to Let Go. Let Go! Surrender! Let ourselves be totally absorbed in His Most Loving Heart!

Jesus is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

1.  Jesus:  I call out to you to come to My Heart! I knock at the door of your heart and you do not hear. Day after day I wait for closer union with you and you are so busy. Open up your heart. Let me be ever closer to you, My beloved ones. How I love you! How I long for you! How I want to be joined in such oneness with you! Let go! Let go and spend time with Me! Take time every day to be alone with Me! That golden time when you sit ever so silently and let Me talk in the inner promptings of  your heart. For I am with you and I am waiting. As your heart beats, as you breathe, I am forever waiting to be closer and to share My love with you, My dear beloved ones.

2.  R.  See Jesus as He sits, covered with a dirty robe and a crown of thorns that was pounded into His Most Precious Head! See the blood on His face as it runs into His eyes and see the blood run from His mouth from the blows they gave to His head! See Jesus! Open your eyes and see clearly. This is God! Jesus, born of the Virgin Mary out of greatest love for us and He waits for you this day! Waits! God waits for man to be ever closer to Him. He calls out with a burning Heart, waiting and waiting to be joined ever closer to us, His precious ones.

3.  Song:  A Song from Jesus

4.  R.  Think of how it is to have a splinter in your finger. Think of  how Jesus was crowned with a sharp crown of piercing thorns for love of us!

5.  R.  What a friend we have in Jesus! He loves us so much that He gave His flesh and blood for us!

6.  R.  They spit on Jesus! They mocked Him! They treated Him so cruelly! He sat in silence! Always in compliance with the Father's Will! Always knowing the Father's love! He sat in silence. He was persecuted! He calls out to us today that when they persecute us, remember what they did to Him!

7.  R.  Jesus came to show us the way! He comes to us this day and cries out asking us to be the Apostles of His Most Sacred Heart - to go out to this world and spread the greatest news we could spread - His love to this world! Spread the Good News that Jesus has died, He is Risen and He will come again!

8.  R.  In death there is resurrection if you stayed rooted in God. Jesus died on the cross that He could bring us new life, that we could have life to the full! It is in our sufferings that we grow in this life with Him. He asks us to pick up our cross, accept our sufferings and be drawn ever closer to Him. Closer and closer! Become one in Him so that He can operate through us to the world that is sick and hurting. The more we surrender, the more we let go, the more we spend time to grow in this union with Him, the more He works through us to His most precious souls that He loves dearly. He came and gave His life for these souls. We must surrender, we must let go and let Him be so close to us.

9.  Jesus:  My dear beloved ones, how I love you with a Heart that is burning, burning with endless love. You go after such foolish things when I am by your side. I never leave you. You look, you wander, you roam and I stand so close to you with such love. But you are never filled. You go to other things to fill your desire for love while I am waiting so patiently. I am watching you. I am by your side with a Heart that is full of Divine Love!

Jesus Carries His Cross up Calvary

1.  R.  The Father so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son into the world that we might be saved.

2.  R.  They gave to Jesus a heavy cross that they put on His shoulder. He carried the heavy cross. He carried it willingly, always looking up to the Father; always aware, in such union with the Father, knowing the Father's love. The Father loves us so much that He sent His only begotten Son into the world! God carried His cross!

3.  R.  Jesus carried His cross and He asks us this day to carry the little crosses that He gives to us, the sufferings that He gives to us that draw us ever closer to the burning love of His Most Sacred Heart. He asks us to comply to the Father's Will, to live "in" the Father's Will!

4.  R.  We are all brothers in Christ. The Father is our father. He loved us so much that He sent His only Son into this world! How can we not love our brothers, our brothers for whom Jesus stood at the pillar and allowed Himself to be scourged and beaten. Our brothers! Jesus shed His blood for our brothers. Jesus loves our brothers so that He suffered and bled for them. He asks us today to pray for our brothers, to let His love that is inside of us, radiate to our brothers so that He can love through us. He calls us to greater union with Him, to time spent alone with Him, to make this the top priority of our life. Jesus, who is truly God, is waiting for us!

5.  R.  His eyes peer into the eyes of His beloved Mother. She saw her Son teeming with blood. She saw her Son with a heavy cross on His back, His body badly wounded. This was the beloved child that she held in her arms, that she cared for, that she knew ever since the prophecy of Simeon would suffer. And their eyes met and in that peering look was the intimacy between these two Hearts! Two Hearts that are overflowing with love for us! They suffered so much for us! The two Hearts that love us ardently. It is through Mary's most tender and pure heart that we are led closer to the love of Jesus' Heart!

6.  R.  Mary, from the first moment of conception, knew Jesus. She watched Him from a small child. She watched Him all through His life and now she watches her Son. A mother standing helplessly by! A Mother! The desire to help her Son! But Mary had to stand by! She could not lift a hand. She saw Him covered with blood and carrying the cross. She cries out to us to see through her eyes the love that her Son has for us. That He suffered and gave His flesh and His blood for love of us. See through Mary's eyes! Love Jesus through Mary's heart! Mary, who knows the Heart of Jesus, will lead us closer and closer to the Burning Heart of her Beloved Son.

7.  Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

8.  R.  Walk with Mary as she walks beside Jesus as He carries His cross. Hear the thumping of the cross and the jeers of the crowd! This is her beloved Son! The Son of God! He is Love! This is how they treated Him!

9.  R.  We are blind! This is Jesus, the Son of God! How could they do this to God? If He walked today, would we be so blind? But He is here this day, the same as the day He walked and carried His cross, no less present in the Eucharist! No less present than He is in this room in His Divinity and humanity! If you were there, if you walked with Mary, would you be united to Jesus who walked with His cross on His back? But Jesus is here! We see through our eyes the Consecrated Host! But it is only through His great grace that we see more about God, insight into the mysteries, that we know the Divine Lord that is truly present in the Host! He Who waits and longs for us, present the same as the day He walked on Calvary. When the priest holds up the Consecrated Host at the Mass, think of Jesus as He hung on the cross! He is there at every Mass for us to look at! He is there present in the Tabernacle! Please impart to us, Dear God, the grace to realize Your true presence in the Consecrated Host, to realize the great gift You give to us: that You remain with us in Your Divinity and Humanity with greatest love in the Eucharist! Take the blinders off our eyes! Take the plugs out of our ears! Open up our hearts and let us hear You knocking on our heart! Knocking and knocking to please let You in! 

10.  R.  How many of us keep Jesus at such a distance! Some of us do not want Jesus too close! We do not want to let go and realize His burning love for us, to realize that He is Love! The love that we feel with one another is only a small amount compared to this great and burning, longing love that Jesus has for us! He is with us this day calling out to come for this love for it is the medicine that will heal the sick world. When we come for His love, this love is a mighty force that radiates within us. Too mighty to be contained, it flows to our brothers! If we want this world to be healed, it starts with us! The more we draw closer to Jesus, the more we will heal the sick world!

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1.  R.  Surrender! Surrender! Surrender! Look at Jesus' position on the cross! His arms are outstretched! He gave His all! He gave His Blood! He gave His flesh! His body was wounded! His hands were pierced with nails! They tied Him to a pillar! He sat while they crowned Him with a piercing crown of thorns! He did not call out! He accepted all that was given to Him because it was the Father's Will, because He loved us. Surrender! He came to show us the way! He shows us the way! See Him as He hangs on the cross! It is in surrendering and dying to self that we become one in Him. He is calling out to us today to let go! Let go! Let go! Let go! Let Him operate us because He is God! His Power and His Might are endless. We are human. The more we become one with Him the more He operates us. He calls out to us to surrender. To let go. To be one with Him! The power comes in the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus! He is truly present in His Divinity and Humanity in the Eucharist! The Son of God is truly present today in the consecrated host, no less present than when He walked the earth. He gives Himself to us in the Eucharist! How lightly we take this as we run from the Church! He gives us Himself! He says:

Jesus:  "I give you Myself! I give you Myself!" "I am no less present than the day I carried My cross on My back! If I were walking across the Church with My cross on My back, would you run out?"

2.  R.  Mary watched as they nailed His hands and feet to the cross. The same hands and feet that were once so small - the Child Jesus. Now she sees as they nail His hands and feet to the cross. She is calling us. The Lady is calling us to spread His love. He died on the cross, gave His flesh and His blood for us! Mary is calling us to spread this love to the souls that are hurting.

3.  R.  They persecuted Him and He loved them! The people that are not nice today are suffering. They need our love! He calls out to love! Always love! His way is love! To be close to Jesus, we must love!

4.  R.  He asks us to go into the world and tell every soul, every precious soul that He loves them so much. He died for each soul. Every soul is the Father's creation, His beautiful creation that He loves dearly.

5.  Song: Lord, let me Walk 

6.  R.  He died to bring us new life! His life He wants to give us, be filled with His grace, His Divine Love. He is waiting for us.

7.  Song: I Love You Jesus

8.  Song:  At the cross, her station keeping. Stood the mournful Mother weeping. Close to Jesus to the last.

9.  R.  How good God the Father is to us! He gave us His Son, Jesus!

10. Song:  Lord, let me Walk

Sorrowful Mysteries 

The Agony in the Garden

1.  R.  Be with Jesus in the Garden. Hear the sounds of the night! See the dark night! See Jesus! Our beloved Jesus with His brown hair, His beautiful face, His gentle kind and loving face! He knelt there! Jesus Christ, the Son of God with greatest love for each one of us, knelt there in such agony!

2.  R.  Jesus sees before Him all the sins from all time, all the sins of all men!

3.  R.  Jesus came to this earth for the salvation of souls!

4.  Song:  A Song from Jesus

5.  R.  Jesus sees before Him all the sufferings that He is about to undergo, all the wounds that He would receive, all the mockery, all the spitting, the crowning of thorns. He sees before Him all the agonies that He would experience when He was put on the cross!

6.  R.  Jesus came to show us how to live according to the Father's will.

7.  R.  The Father intends us to do His Will.

8.  Song:  I Love You Jesus

9.  R.  Jesus' greatest agonies were not the agonies that He would experience to His physical body, but the agonies that He would experience to His Most Sacred Heart, His Heart that is burning with love for each and every soul. Jesus saw before Him all the souls that would have nothing to do with Him, that would live their lives willfully, that would reject God, that would treat God indifferently, and then would suffer eternal damnation because of their willfulness!

10.  R.  Jesus' anguish in the garden was so great that His sweat became as drops of blood.

Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar

1.  R.  See Jesus! He is tied to the pillar! Be there in the dim light!

2.  R.  The men who scourged Jesus, see their faces! Such hatred! Such anger! Their hearts welled up with ugliness! They came at Jesus with sharp tools that delivered such blows that His body was torn and bloodied!

3.  R.  What of the hearts of these men that beat Jesus Christ, Son of God? They beat Jesus to their own exhaustion! They laughed! They scoffed! What of these hearts? What of the hearts that are in the world today that are so cold, that think not of others, only of themselves! The devil is so crafty! But Jesus is a burning furnace of endless love that waits for us! He is in the Tabernacle at this very moment! The same Jesus Who was scourged at the pillar is in the Tabernacle! With greatest love for us, He remains present no less than the day He was tied to the pillar. This is the love that the Almighty God has for us that He remains with us in His Divinity and humanity waiting and longing for us to come and be with Him.

4.  R.  In our busy day, we say: Lord, Lord, How busy we are! And He says: I give you twenty-four hours in the day! Can you not spend one hour with Me?

 

 

5.  R.  In the garden, He was in such agony.  The Apostles slept. Are we asleep this day when God is truly present and in our midst and we choose other things above Him and say: No, God, we are too busy! But He waits! As we breathe, at our every breath and our every heartbeat, He is burning and on fire for love of us! Even though we do not think of Him, He never abandons us. He is always there, longing and waiting for us to come to Him.

6.  R.  And they tore His flesh! This is God! He is love! What had He done to deserve this treatment?

7.  R.  Jesus calls us to love! Jesus calls us to this love this day! The world may persecute us and laugh at us and spit on us as they did to Him! He is Love! Look how they treated Him! His way is always love! He came to show us the way to touch the hearts that are cold. It is not in responding with hatred and anger that they are touched by the love of God, but it is by responding in love. This takes the grace of the Almighty God. He remains with us this day in the Tabernacle in His Divinity and humanity. He outpours His grace in the Eucharist. He wants to give us His love. He wants to operate us so that we will give this love to the world that is in so much pain!

8.  Song:  Come Unto Me All Who are Weary

9.  R.  God is so good! He created man out of His goodness! The Father created each and every soul with the tenderest love. Each soul is a creation of God the Father. How can I criticize my brothers when I realize that they are the Father's creation? But out of greatest love, He gave to each one of us a free will!

10.  R.  It is in living according to the Father's plan and living in His Will that I am happiest and find peace. His way is not always the easy way. But before we were born He had a plan for each one of us. It is in living according to His plan and living in the Father's Will that we will have peace in our hearts. As Jesus complied to the Father's Will, even to His death, there was always a look of peace on His face, always love in His Heart because He knew the love of His Father. The Father loves us so much that He created each one of us uniquely special. We are His precious children. He calls us "His children"!

Jesus is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

1.  R.  They pounded into Jesus' most Precious Head a sharp crown of piercing thorns! Think of how it is when you cut your finger! Think of how it would be to have pounded into your skull piercing thorns that penetrate your head and make it bleed!

2.  R.  Think of how it is to watch your child bleed? Think of how that feels in your heart and think of Mary through the Passion as she saw her Son and saw Him bleed!

3.  R.  The holes in Jesus' skull! The blood ran down His face! Jesus sat clothed in a dirty purple robe covering the open wounds on His body while they spit on Him, mocked Him and hollered at Him and He did not answer back. Jesus accepted the things that they did. He shed His blood for love of man!

4.  R.  Who are we that God loves us so much! That God sent His Son into this world! That His Son, Jesus, became a man! God took on a human nature because He loves us so much! He did this to show us the way. He did this that someday we may be with Him forever and ever in Heaven!

5.  R.  But the agonies that were the greatest were not the agonies that Jesus suffered to His body: the wounds that were wide open, the flesh that was torn, the holes in His skull. The greatest agonies were the agonies to His most precious Heart, the Heart that loved so dearly each soul that He came to earth. God gave His flesh and His blood for love of each soul. Then to be treated so coldly and indifferently and neglected by the very souls for whom He shed His blood!

6.  Song:  A Song From Jesus

7.  R.  Jesus calls out to us! Do we realize that God is in our midst? Do we realize that He remains with us in the Tabernacle in His Divinity and humanity, the same as when He walked the earth and was crowned with thorns! Jesus Christ, the Son of God, remains with us!

8.  R.  God runs the world, our every breath and heartbeat depends on Him. We see the Consecrated Host before our eyes, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is present in the Consecrated Host.

9.  R.  Who are we that we are in this room in the presence of God?

10.  R.  Let us pray for greater grace to realize more and more the presence of God, the true presence of Jesus Christ in the Tabernacle - the reality that Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist. Spirit, open our eyes that where we are blind we may see more and more those things that you want us to see.

Jesus Carries His Cross up Calvary

1.  R.  The angry men stood around Jesus. They poked at Him. His eyes were cast upward toward His beloved Father for He knew the Father's love. The more that we join ourselves in union with Jesus, the closer we become to the Father. The Father loves us so much He created us!

2.  R.  God created us in His own image and likeness. It is through the Holy Spirit that we are transformed more and more into the image of Jesus. The more that we are transformed into this image, the closer we become to our Most Loving Father.

3.  R.  Holy Spirit, transform us in the Heart of our Beloved Mother, Mary, more and more into the image of Jesus Christ, our Beloved Savior!

R.  How the Heart of Mary knows the Heart of her Beloved Son. She held Him as a child, she watched Him all through His life. Now she walks beside Him as He carried His cross, teeming with blood, crowned with thorns, His body wounded! His Mother helplessly walks by. A Mother! She cannot lift a hand! She can only watch her Son. Think of how it is to see your Son, or your child, in any kind of suffering!

5.  R.  A mother usually cries out to help her child, to rescue her child, to be with her child! But Mary stood helplessly by! Her Heart torn in shreds as she watched the bloody massacre of her beloved Son!

6.  Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

7.  R.  This is Jesus' Mother's House. Mary has called us all here to her house to spend this time with her Son on Friday, between 12:00 noon and three o'clock. The time that is so precious to Jesus for it is the three agonizing hours that He hung on the cross. Mary has called us to be the apostles to go into this world and spread the love of His Most Sacred Heart to this world. Not to some, but to each and every soul that He shed His blood for. It is in loving all, loving those that are not so nice, that Jesus can touch them with His love through us, if we open our hearts and surrender and let Him become one in us. Jesus gave His life for His precious souls.

8.  R.  Out of greatest love the Father gave us a free will. We have a free will to accept His plan or to reject His plan. His plan is for the salvation of souls, the souls that the Father loves so much that He sent His only begotten Son into this world. His Son died on the cross for the salvation of each and every precious soul - each and every precious soul that the Father created.

9.  Song:  Lord Let Me Walk

10.  R.  So uniquely special! There is not another soul on the face of this earth that is like us. The Father created each one of us with a special plan to do His work - the work of spreading the love of God and loving each other.

    If Jesus would stand in this room at this very moment, you could see Him! Jesus is truly present in His Divinity and humanity in the Tabernacle right now in this room. Jesus does not have to stand in this room. He is truly present here, the same as the day He carried His cross on His back! He is here in His Divinity and humanity and He wants you to know how truly present He is to each and every one of us! Feel His love penetrate your heart for He loves you so dearly that He gave His flesh and He gave His blood for you!

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1.  R.  See Jesus as they stretch His arms and His legs and they pound His most precious hands and feet into the cross!

2.  R.  Jesus' dear Mother watches as they pound His hands and feet into the cross remembering the little tiny hands and feet that she once cared for.

3.  R.  Mary's heart was pierced with a sword! Do we know how her heart was torn inside of her chest as she stood at the base of the cross held up by her beloved John and watched her Son as He hung for three agonizing hours to His death on the cross!

4.  R.  Jesus calls out in a loud voice: My God, My God! Why have You forsaken Me? He calls out today to this world: Why have You forsaken Me? I am the Son of God! I am in your midst this day! I gave My flesh and My blood for love of you and you treat Me with such indifference. Many pay no heed to the Son of God!

5.  Jesus:  My children! My children! I call you as My soldiers to go out into this world. Make  your hearts pure. Keep them soft and tender. Do not harden your hearts. Let the love of God flow through you to this sick world for it is through you that I will touch so many hearts. You must rid yourself of all hatred, anger and resentment and come to Me for My love!

6.  Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

7.  R.  See through a mother's eyes! For she truly comes and appears as Our Lady of Light. Our Lady calls out to you to come to the Heart of her Son. It is in this Heart that you will find your refuge, your life, your security, your peace. Come to the Heart of Jesus Who hung on the cross and gave His flesh, His blood for love of you. He would do this this day.

Song: A Song from Jesus

8.  R.  See through Mary's eyes the love that Jesus has for you. If you stood under the cross with her, if you felt the anguish in her heart, would you believe then how dearly Jesus loves you?

9.  R.  See Jesus' dead body. Once His Mother held the child Jesus in her arms, now they hand her the lifeless body of her Son covered with blood and wounds under the cross! Jesus did the Father's Will! It is in living in the Father's Will that your peace and your joy lie. Spirit of God, fill us that we may be transformed from fear to fearlessness to carry the Gospel message into this world. For Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was born in Bethlehem, He died on the cross, He rose from the dead, He ascended into Heaven, and He will come again! Go to the highways and byways. Shout it from the rooftop how God loves us! This is the love that our souls crave. Nothing but this love satisfies the stalking soul. Holy Spirit, where we are blind, let us now see. Come upon us as You did upon the Apostles and outpour Your grace. Move in us to feel the vibrancy of God's love, to be filled up with the fire of God's love.

Song:  Come Holy Spirit

Song:  God's Love

10.  R.  Jesus was placed in the tomb and His enemies thought they had defeated Jesus! But on the third day, Jesus rose from the tomb. Death has no power over Jesus! In all the suffering that we undergo, if we stay fixed to Jesus, there is life. Death-Resurrection! Suffering - New Life! He showed us the way. He was born on bare wood in the town of Bethlehem and He died hanging on a cross. But the glory that awaits he who loves and serves the Lord far surpasses anything that we can imagine.

Song: Eye Has Not Seen

I pray fervently that every person that is here may be drawn ever closer to understanding the Passion of Jesus and Mary. For it is in studying and meditating on the passion that we will realize the immensity of Their love. Mary's heart was pierced with an invisible sword. Jesus' Heart was pierced with a lance. From Jesus' Heart flowed blood and water, the sacramental life of the Church. May we pray ever fervently for the priests and the Church. We will have peace, love, joy and happiness in Him. 

The Church is the Body of Christ. One of the truths that is emphasized by this concept is the idea of community. The communion that binds the members of the Church together is, in turn, connected with that wider idea of community that embraces the whole of mankind.  Excerpt from Response to God's Love by Fr. Edward J. Carter

Saturday Morning - His Presence

Saturday morning an experience of His presence - went to 2 Masses

R.    I want such a close union with Him. Feeling so overwhelmed with His presence. Words cannot express what I feel.

    Longing, wanting, thirsting after the Eucharist. My heart burns for love of Him.

    Such realization of His presence. All through Mass. When I saw the Host and cup raised up, I could not hardly stand it, I realized the presence of God so strong.

    Oh I cannot write here, anything that I feel. I am in love with the consecrated host (Jesus), I long, I thirst, I wait, I want to be in this state after communion constantly.

    I can think of this presence after communion, such intimacy with my Jesus. This is my fondest thoughts of love to re-count the time after communion.

    Oh I love You my sweet Jesus, to behold You and want and thirst and yearn for more, more, more. I want more union with You my sweet adorable Jesus.

    Jesus said so strong before both communions

        "I give you Myself"
        "I give you Myself"

    Love with Him is so spiritual, so much a union of my soul with His. So deep and fulfilling.

    To love spiritually, The deep love is in the Spirit.

    The love I feel for Jesus is so deep, the greatest union with Him I experience when He gives me Himself in communion. I long and wait for this time, I can't wait until I receive Him again. With great anticipation, I yearn for this union with Him.

    The body expresses the deep spiritual love. The activity, the depth is in the Spirit.

    Hugging each and every person comes from a deep connectedness with His love, you love Him so much, you realize How the Father loves them so much, you love them. You do not think, you love. It is in your being - YOU LOVE, you see Jesus in them, you love them always according to God's will.

    You see the image of God in all of His creatures and you love God in them. You love them, because you see His beautiful creation.

    You see more and more His creation in each and every creature, you cannot help but love them.

I Want Such Close Union

R.    My relationship with Fr. Carter is to promote the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

    The strength comes from him receiving messages from Jesus and Mary, me receiving messages from Jesus and Mary. They are messages for the world, for all souls, for the Church. This is the mighty medicine to turn men's hearts to the love of God.

    This is my goal to spread devotion to the HEARTS THROUGHOUT THIS LAND.

    I want to tell others HIS LOVE, HER LOVE.

 

    I see all the love He pours out to me in each and every special friend. I am so gifted with love and so full of self. God is the source of my love, I must go to Him and give love, not go to get love trying to possess my friends.

    Opened the book to February 5 (Blue Book II)

    Love is not selfish, It does not demand its own way. It lives for the good of the other.

    Love is from God, Love has its source in GOD. If love in anyway separates the two people it is not from GOD.

Transcribed from a live tape as Mary and Jesus appeared
at the Holy Spirit Center (the old seminary) at 6:30 

Sorrowful Mysteries 

The Agony in the Garden

1.  R.  Do we realize the sufferings that Jesus and Mary suffered because they love us so much.

2.  R.  Mary knew throughout Jesus' life the immense sufferings He would have to undergo and she carried this sword in her Heart wherever she went whenever she looked at the child Jesus.

3.  R.  Where was Mary when Jesus was in the Garden? Surely she knew that His hour had come. Surely she was so connected with Him in her Heart that she knew He was undergoing terrific suffering!

4.  R.  In compliance to the Father's Will, Jesus agreed to everything He was about to undergo.

Matthew 26: 39

And going on a little further he fell on his face and prayed. ‘My Father,’ he said, ‘if it is possible, let this cup pass me by. Nevertheless, let it be as you, not I, would have it.’

5.  R.  How many times in the lives of Jesus and Mary have they shown us the way to comply to the Father's Will. All through Mary's life she trusted and followed the Father's Will. She did exactly what she was to do. Jesus, to His death, complied to the Will of the Father!

6.  R.  Be with Jesus in the Garden! Hear the sounds of the night! See Him as He kneels in anguish and He sees before Him all the hearts that He dearly loves. He knows how He will be rejected and treated with such indifference, even hatred by so many souls that He would give His life for.

7.  Jesus:  Do you not have one hour to give to Me?

8.  R.  Jesus saw before Him this present age —  all the hearts, the hardened hearts of men who think so much of pleasing themselves, that have turned cold, that have gone away from the human concern of man and focused on details and hatred. Jesus saw these hearts that were so hardened, the hearts that He loved and would give His life for.

9.  R.  Jesus sends us as soldiers into the world to spread the love of His Sacred Heart in the highways and byways. Let the love of Jesus come from our very being. This is what He calls us to: love of God and love of one another.

10.  R.  How can we, His special chosen ones who know the love of this Divine God, fold our arms across in front of our chest and hold back when He asks us to march into the world with fearlessness and spread His Gospel, the message that He came and gave His life for!

Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar

1.  R.  Jesus was led away. He was beaten. His hair was pulled and He was tied mercilessly to the pillar!

2.  R.  Jesus' flesh was torn. His blood ran from His body and they stood with hatred in their hearts, with their angry faces, and they beat the Son of God!

3.  R.  Jesus always complied to the Father's Will. As He stood at the pillar, He thought of us and how He loved us so dearly. He was comforted by the love that we give to Him this day. It is hard to be a Christian in this world. He calls us to love. He shows us the way. He wants us to trust in Him, to turn our lives totally over to Him. When we have wronged Him and have talked about our brothers wrongfully, He wants us to come and tell Him that we are sorry and try again. For He truly loves each one of us and He wants to lead us to a pure heart. For it is only a pure heart, a heart of love, that can unite closely to His Most Sacred Heart.

4.  Jesus:  I call out to you, My children, to clean your hearts of all the debris. To let go of all  hatred and anger. To come to Me in total trust. For I will give you all you need. You must trust. You must have faith. You cannot do this on your own. You need to let go in total surrender and let me operate from your being. Rid yourself of anger and division toward your brother and come to Me and give Me your heart!

5.  Jesus:  Satan will keep you locked in a heart that is troubled. Come to Me and you will be set free. You will not labor. You will not be burdened. For it is in My Heart that you will find peace, joy and happiness.

6.  Song:  Come unto Me all who are weary.

7.  Jesus:  I call you into the world as lights that shine in the darkness. Rid your hearts of anything that is not pure. Open your hearts. Do not listen to satan who tries to divide you. Come to Me and I will teach you all that you need to know.

8.  Jesus:  They tore My flesh! They beat My body! But I loved those who persecuted Me. I came to show you the way. You must trust. As I knew the Father's love, you, too, the more you unite with Me, will know His immense love for you. It is this love that led Me through the Passion.

9.  Jesus:  Do not let satan talk in your heads. When you have wronged Me, say you are sorry and let it go. Do not let him continue to talk in your heads and make you feel guilty. For I truly come to share Myself with you. You must focus on Me and My ways always! Always love! And when you have wronged any man, say you are sorry and love again.

10.  Jesus:  See Me scourged at the pillar! This is the love that I have for each of you!

Jesus:  They take My Passion and death so lightly. It is in studying this Passion that you will realize more and more the immensity of My love. For I truly love you. Your hearts are hungry and always searching for love. I am ever with you, ever present and by your side waiting to be so united in love with you.

Jesus is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

1.  Jesus:  Judas could not say he was sorry. Judas did what he did and the worst is how it ended for him. The devil wants you caught in a trap that will keep you forever in his clutches. You must say you are sorry and love again.

2.  Jesus:  They did not see the majesty of the Almighty God when they crowned Me with thorns, when they spit on Me! But I am the Divine God! See the creation of the Father. Always look for the light. For it is in realizing this light that you will give them the love that I want to give them through you.

3.  Jesus:  Pray to the Spirit to see beyond the visible. Pray for faith. What you see is not My world. What you see is this world. You must look beyond. Your hearts must be connected to My vision. You must open up your eyes and pray to the Spirit to help you see ever so clearly those things that I want to show  you.

4.  Jesus:  Blind men! Blind men! They beat My body! The pounded on the thorns on My head! They spit on Me and mocked Me! They did not know that what they did was to persecute the Son of God!

5.  Jesus:  What you do to the least of your brethren, you do unto Me!

6.  Jesus:   For all those that you have wronged, say you are sorry and move on. For you are truly My lights that will light up the dark night. You are not perfect. You are to be My soldiers to spread My love into this world. You make mistakes. I forgive you. You must light up the world with My love!

7.  Jesus:  I love you so dearly that I withstood all this treatment for love of you. Do you realize that I am talking to you and that I truly love you, that your souls that crave such love can only be fed by My love? You wander,  you roam, you look and I am waiting with a Heart that is burning and on fire for love of you. Come into My Heart and find rest for your soul!

8.  Song:  A Song From Jesus

9.  Jesus:  Do you know that My Mother is forever by your side? As she stood by Me on Calvary she stands by you with such love. Do you tell her how you love her? Do you thank her for all that she has done for you? She is My Mother!

10.  Jesus:  Mary is your mother! Mary wants to guide you ever closer to Me. It is through her most tender and pure Heart that you will be led to deepest intimacy with Me. Go to your Mother! As I was born of the Virgin Mary and I grew, you are born in baptism and your Mother helps you grow in your spiritual life to a closer union with Me. Let go to your Mother Mary. She is your Spiritual Mother. She will lead you on the path to a deeper spiritual life.

Jesus Carries His Cross up Calvary

1.  Jesus:  When you are filled with fear you have taken your focus off of Me. You must let go of yourself. You must pray more to the Spirit to transform you from fear to fearlessness, to be led to My Most loving Heart, to be formed in the Heart of Mary into My image and thereby led closer to the Father. I knew the Father's love. As I carried My cross, I knew His love. It is in knowing His love that you will be able to have so much peace, happiness and joy.

2.  Jesus:  I carried My cross on My back. I ask you to carry your crosses. I give you this burden and it is through your suffering that you will be drawn ever closer to My life. To give up your cross, you give up a great sharing in My life. Take your cross on your back and know that in suffering there is the resurrection, the resurrection to new life, life in Me! It is through much suffering that you will be drawn ever closer to My Most Sacred Heart!

3.  Jesus:  The lessons I teach you this day you will learn when you meditate on My Passion.

4.  Jesus:  They are lessons of My immense love. They are lessons of surrender. They are lessons of doing the Father's Will. They are lessons of carrying your burden and turning your focus always to Me. They are lessons that I teach you when you meditate on My rosary.

5.  R.  The rosary is the meditation of the lives of Jesus and Mary. It is in meditating on these mysteries that we learn more about the mysteries of Christ's life and we are drawn more and more to the Two Hearts that are so full of love for each one of us. Her Heart was pierced with a sword. His Heart was pierced with a lance. Out of greatest love for us, she comes to us this day and asks us to meditate more and more on the  Passion of her Beloved Son, Jesus Christ.

6.  R.  And their eyes peered into one another's and in that look, Mary saw her Beloved Son, the child she had carried. She saw Him now with thorns on His head, with blood teeming down His body, with a cross on His back. Wounded! Covered with wounds! This is her Son! She saw Him! Mary could not lift a hand to help! He peered into her eyes and saw the Mother He loved, her face reddened, tears on her cheeks. He saw her Heart. He saw her internal suffering. She did not bear His wounds but she had suffered by watching her Son go through this agony.

7.  Jesus:  Open your hearts to Me! Let your hearts become supple. I am knocking on the door of your heart. I am begging for entry to come in. You must release all that is holding you back. I will never hurt you. I am your God and I died for you!

8.  R.  As Jesus carried His cross on His back, as He was truly present there, He is truly present in the Eucharist this day. He is waiting for us in His Divinity and humanity so that He can outpour His grace and His life that He wants to give us. He gives this life in such abundance in front of the Tabernacle. When we receive Him in the Eucharist, He is there in His Divinity and humanity. He outpours His life in greatest proportions in the Eucharist and in front of the Tabernacle and He waits and longs for us to come and to be with Him!

9.  Jesus:  Can you not watch one hour?

10.  R.  Do you not realize that Jesus Christ Who carried His cross on His back, that Jesus Christ Who is the Son of God, waits for you with such burning love to come and be with Him in the tabernacle? Do you not realize that when you receive Him in Communion, that this is God!

Song between decades:  A Song From Jesus

  

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1.  Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

2.  R.  Think of what it is like to have pain, to have a pain in your eye or your hand and how focused you are on this pain. See Jesus covered with wounds on every part of His body, streaming with blood. Think of the sight of your own blood but see Jesus with all the blood that is both dried up and running on His body. See Him as He hangs, humped over on the cross. So weak. His life gone from His body. This is the love that He has for each of us. Why do we hold back when He gave so much of Himself to prove His love for us. Why do we not trust and have faith? Why when we go to communion and we realize the immensity of His presence in the special moments that He gives to us — that feeling that we receive when the Son of God gives Himself to us — why do we need more proof.

Song:  Look Beyond.

3.  R.  And He says over and over again: "I give you Myself!" "I give you Myself!" Realize the real presence of God — that where Jesus is so is the Father and the Holy Spirit. We receive God inside of us! It is in our blindness that we are not realizing the great gift that we are being given. Dear Holy Spirit, outpour your grace to us. Help us to see more and more with the vision of God. Help us to realize His true presence, to receive the Eucharist, and realize that, that is the same Jesus Christ that hung on the cross for three hours and He comes to be in such union with us. Jesus wants intimacy with us. He wants to be joined in such oneness with us. But we cannot even fathom. Jesus is the author of love. God is love.

4.  R.  Jesus cries out for an intimate love relationship with us. He wants us to open up our hearts and to pray for the grace to be filled with His life, the grace that He pours out abundantly in the Eucharist and in front of the Tabernacle that we may be drawn ever closer to this burning Heart of endless love!

5.  R.  This love is not a little lip service love. It is the love that Jesus had when He hung on the cross for three agonizing hours and gave His flesh and His blood for us. This is the love He has — that He gave Himself, His all, stretched His arms, gave all of His blood, gave the last beat of His heart. He gives Himself to us this day and we take this gift so lightly. It is in our blindness that we do not realize that this is such a great gift Jesus Christ, the Son of God, gives Himself to us to be one with us in communion.

6.  R.  The Church is the Body of Christ and we are its members.  When we receive communion, we are receiving the Body of Christ.

Song:  One Bread, One Body

7.  R.  We pray for the Church. We pray for the priests, the priests that Jesus and Mary so dearly love, the priests that are so specially anointed by God.

8.  Song:  Take and Eat

9.  R.  See Him hang against the darkened sky. See Him humped over as He hung lifeless. His life is ended. Death has no power over Jesus Christ. For as His enemies are happy that they could lock Him in a tomb. He rose triumphant on the third day.

10.  Song:  Night is Over

Song after last decade:  A Song from Jesus

Jesus:  Reach out! Reach out! Go out into the world! Shine as lights in the darkness! I call you as My special chosen ones to answer this call for you are truly chosen and I send you into this world as My warriors to spread My light in the dark corners. Will you answer this call? Open wide your arms. Open up your hearts. Speak to every man that you meet. Do not hold back this great news that you have — the great gifts that you have been given. My chosen ones.

Mary:  Such gifts you have to come to My House and you hold back my messages from the souls that are hurting. Think of the souls that will be condemned to eternal damnation despite the sufferings of my beloved Son. I send you out into the world as lights that shine in the darkness. Let your light shine to this dark world. Let the love of My Son radiate from your being. As I call you this day, will you answer me? Will you be the light that shines in the dark night?  Can my Son count on you to spread the messages of His love throughout this world? As He died on the cross and gave His blood for each and every soul, will you spread this message of love to the world today. I am your Mother and thank you for responding to my call.

 Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary

1.  The Prophecy of Simeon.   R.  And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

2.  The Flight into Egypt.   R.  And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

3.  The Loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple.   R.  And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

4.  Jesus and Mary meet on the way to the Cross.   R.  And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

5.  Jesus Dies on the Cross.   R.  And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

6.  Jesus is Taken Down from the Cross and Laid in Mary's Arms.   R.  Mary receives the lifeless body of her Beloved son in her arms: Jesus, the child Jesus! Think of her holding the child Jesus horizontally in her arms! Think of the child Jesus born in the town of Bethlehem in a crib and see Him as He hangs on the cross! Think of her holding the child Jesus in her arms and then  holding His lifeless body in the same position, covered with wounds, covered with blood,  dead! This is the love that Mary has for us. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

7.  The Burial of JesusR.  Jesus was locked in the tomb and Mary weeps bitterly outside: The cold reality to know that He was dead.

 

This rosary was prayed before the statue of Our Lady of Sorrows. Rita, Cathy, Joe, Keith and Marty were present.

Mary appeared in the brightest light throughout the entire rosary. Her face was "real" and she moved her face. The more we talked about her appearing, the brighter she became.

Bumping into the Building

Jesus:  (Jesus' statue in the entryway was looking to the side and not straight ahead. His body was straight, but his head was turned to the side).

    The door to My heart is open. My beloved ones are missing the door. They are doing their own thing. They are not coming through the door, they are lining up and bumping into the building. Why are they willful? They want to do it themselves. They do not surrender. They do not realize they must pray to the Spirit. They must be led by God. You must become one in Me and let Me operate your hearts. You are all doing your own thing. Only in unity will My Center light up this world. I look to the east—for you are off-center. You are bumping into the building and missing the entryway.

   You can only enter My Mother's house with hearts of love. If you have hatred, anger, selfishness, or self-promotion as  your goal here, you will miss the entryway. You are bumping into the building. In three days I can destroy the temple and build it again. You do your own things. You do not listen to Me and My Mother. You are blind. I come and tell you My ways in these letters. I beg you all to read these letters. I beg you to pray from your hearts, to realize that My City is built on Love.

    Love, Love, Love. Your city will shine with the love of God in your hearts when you come to My tabernacle. Pray these rosary meditations with My Mother and Me. I am giving you a key to light the city. These messages need to circulate and be supported. If you continue to go without My messages, without reading and supporting them, you will bump into the building. My power is a power too mighty to be contained. I am dealing with you directly in these letters. The more you ignore these messages, the more you will have problems.

    These letters are for all there. I beg you, beg you to listen. These letters need to circulate. The city will be lighted only through the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Christ.

    I beg you to support and circulate these letters. You cannot light the city on your own. You need to read these messages. I write messages that are being ignored. If you do not read these messages, you are missing the key I give you to unlock the doors so all can come there.

    I beg you to read these messages. I beg all there to remain after Communion and spend one hour in front of the tabernacle daily—one hour. You need time alone with Me. I beg you, beg you to pray to the Holy Spirit. Every person there needs to pray to the Holy Spirit every day.

    You are bumping into the building. You are missing the entryway. You are looking for your answers in the wrong places. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I want to light your city with My love — My love radiating from your hearts.

    You need to pray with the heart. I am giving you Rosary meditations on My life and My Mother's life. She is appearing as Our Lady of Light at the Center. Come to the Rosary. We are there with you at 6:30. Support this Rosary. People need to pray every day. Please publish the rosary meditations. I am Jesus and I have spoken. You will continue to bump into the building and miss the entryway if you ignore these letters. I write to you daily. They need to be read and circulated. My city will shine with My love, radiating from all hearts that go there. I am Jesus and I have spoken.

    Please give this letter to—anyone involved in spreading My deep love at the Center. I call you all as apostles to go into this world and spread My love radiating through you, through the Center, to the world. I am Jesus and I ask you to listen to Me.

    Come unto Me all who labor and are heavily burdened and I will give you rest. Give this message to all listed above on February 23rd. This is the anniversary of My letter about our City of Light. I ask you to read this message (February 23, 1994). I am Jesus. I am giving you messages for this Center. I gave you this message on February 23, 1994. I want this message to circulate. The message published and distributed February 17, 1995 is so important to your Center. See that it is published in every means possible. The plan of the Father is unfolding. My messages are so important to the Center. I beg you to listen to Me.

(I opened the Blue Book because He told me to, to October 18, 1993, 8:20 a.m. "Bring Your Children to Me". Please read this - p.29 God's Blue Book I)

       

February 21, 1995 - For Shepherds of Christ Meeting - Before the tabernacle

His Pierced Heart

   

R.  From the pierced Heart of Christ the Church was born, the Church you called me to be a member of Shepherds of Christ. Jesus is the bread of life. He remains with us this day, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.

Song:  I see the host - I know you're here to love and care for me.
Oh burning Heart, oh love divine, How dear you are to me. I see the host I know you're here to love and care for me.

Jesus:  My beloved ones in the Shepherds of Christ,

    See beyond what is visible, see Me in the Eucharist. You come to pray here, I am with you. I am truly present in the Eucharist. I am truly with you, this evening.

    Oh My dear ones, do you know how truly precious you are to Me. You are My chosen ones to go into the world and spread My love. Oh, I call you here, I love you so, be busy for our love affair is so important.

    You will spread My love throughout this world. Surrender your wills to the Father's will. He has a plan for you. You are My special soldiers I send out into the darkened world.

    Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus.

Sing the Song:
    You are the Voice
    Here I Am Lord

    You have been called by My Mother to come to this Center, she is calling YOU — I am calling YOU — You are My special apostles to spread the Love of My Sacred Heart throughout this world. I love you with a Burning Heart on FIRE for love of you. I loved you to My Death.

JESUS SONG - AMEN ALLELUIA

    Suffering, how I suffered to My arms and My shoulders.

    You suffer so little, you do not think of the pain I experienced. They flung the cross on My shoulder. A little pain to your shoulder. Do you want to relieve your pains. My shoulder ached, I could not remove the cross. It was so heavy and it continued to press and weigh more and more. My child, My child, every pain you experience remember My sufferings. It is in your little pains that you can realize My immense sufferings and in these sufferings you will realize My immense love.

    I love you, each one of you, so much, please listen to Me. You do not realize how I talk to you, how I truly, truly love you. Every word in My letters are My love letters to you. Please My beloved ones listen to Me. Put yourself in My world. You hold on so tight to what you see. See beyond what is visible. Experience all I am teaching you. I can teach you a lesson so profound in the batting of an eye. I am pouring out My abundant grace to you in the Shepherds of Christ. Grow ever closer to Me. Pray for the priests and the Church. Circulate My love letters to the priests and sisters. Tell them of My immense love. Give the priests and sisters Blue Book II. Oh how I love. One priest fixed on My Eucharistic Heart can spread My love throughout the world. Pray for your priests, give them these letters and tell them, how Jesus is talking to them because He loves them so much.

    I hung on the cross. My hands were hanging from nails, but the pain to My shoulders and arms. Do you know how they ached as I  hung for three solid hours, so weakened, so wounded, bleeding, My head pounded, pounded, blood hard and caked on. Oh you do not know even a little of My love.

Song:  I know Your love a little now, how dear You are to me. Come give me life abundant life I thirst to be with Thee.

Jesus:  And from My pierced Heart flowed blood and water. You will have life in abundance when you take shelter in My Eucharistic Heart. I pour My life out to you in the Eucharist. Come to My Heart and dwell there, forever in such love.

Glorious Mysteries

The Resurrection

1.  Jesus:  Many are called but few are chosen.

2.  Jesus:  I came to bring you new life!

3.  Jesus:  You are My chosen ones to go into the world and to spread the love of My Most Sacred Heart.

4.  Jesus:  I remain with you this day in the Holy Eucharist.

5. 

"Now while he was with them at table, he took the bread and said the blessing; then he broke it and handed it to them. And their eyes were opened and they recognised him; but he had vanished from their sight."   Luke 24: 30-31

6.  Jesus:  I am calling you, My chosen ones, to spread My love into this world. Come to the Eucharist so you may receive My Divine Love. There I outpour My grace.

7.  R.  Meditate that Jesus Christ is truly present in the Consecrated Host.

8.  R.  Impart to us the ability to see.

9.  R.  Jesus said to Thomas, who doubted Jesus:

 John 20: 29

Jesus said to him:
    You believe because you can see me.
    Blessed are those who have not seen
        and yet believe.    

R.  Help us more and more, Dear Jesus, to realize that the Consecrated Host is truly God present in His Divinity and humanity, waiting for us. God is present in the Eucharist! Help us to have a love, a deep love when we see the Consecrated Host. Help us to realize that this is God! And where Jesus is, so are the Father and the Holy Spirit! Who are we that God remains with us this day?

10.  R.  And He gave to the apostles the power to baptize and forgive sins.

Song between decades:  Come Holy Spirit

 

  The Ascension

1.  Luke 24: 50-51

Then he took them out as far as the outskirts of Bethany, and raising his hands he blessed them. Now as he blessed them, he withdrew from them and was carried up to heaven.

2.  Acts 1: 5

John baptised with water but, not many days from now, you are going to be baptised with the Holy Spirit.’

3.  R.  They who walked and talked with Jesus, were filled with fear when He ascended into Heaven and locked themselves in the upper room.

4.   Acts 2: 1-4

"When Pentecost day came round, they had all met together, when suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a violent wind which filled the entire house in which they were sitting; and there appeared to them tongues as of fire; these separated and came to rest on the head of each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak different languages as the Spirit gave them power to express themselves.
 

5.  R.  What a gift Jesus ascended into heaven.

6.  R.  Jesus remains with us this day in the Eucharist.

     Song:  I am the Bread of Life.

7.  R.  Jesus died. Jesus rose. Jesus ascended into heaven.

8.  Sing:  Come Holy Ghost

9.  R.  God wants us in heaven with Him for all eternity.

10.  R.  God created us in His image and likeness.

Song between decades:  Come Holy Spirit

   

  The Descent of the Holy Spirit

1.  R.  They were locked in the upper room and a gigantic wind descended upon them and over their heads appeared parted tongues of fire.

2.  R.  They were filled with the Holy Spirit and they went out to the world to preach the Gospel and all understood!

3.  R.  They were transformed from fear to fearlessness.

4.  R.  Jesus and Mary call out to us this day. We are His hands. We are His Heart to this world. They call out in a deep cry to go out to this world and to spread His love!

5.  R.  Holy Spirit, come to us gathered here. Let us know the fire of Your love. Give us courage the more we pray to You. Help us to be fervent in praying to You daily and all through the day. Give us Your gifts. Help us to be Your soldiers in this world spreading Your word. Thank You for baptism.

6.  R.  Transform us from fear to fearlessness so that we will go out to this world and not worry about what people think, but have before us always the desire to go out to this world and spread His love.

7.  Jesus:  You, indeed, are My chosen ones. I have gathered you here. You are so special to My Heart. I ask you this day to pray fervently to the Spirit to move in you, to help you to have fearlessness to go out to this world and to preach the Gospel.

My work is not a little work here. My work is a work to spread My love throughout the world. I have this Center and the Shepherds of Christ Movement to do this and I will do this through you. Open up your hearts! Do not fear! Let Me operate in you! Be about your union with Me, ever closer to Me so that I may operate through you and give My love to this world. You are My beloved ones. You are My chosen ones. I beg you this day to harken to My call! For I truly call out to you. Come, come unto Me all you who are weary and heavily burdened. Come to My Heart. Experience My Love and go out to this world and spread that love to the highways and byways for I call you here this evening. Will you harken to My call?

The Assumption of Mary Into Heaven

1.  R.  Mary remained on the earth many years after Jesus' death and then she was taken body and soul into Heaven.

2.  R.  Heaven is our true home.

3.  R.  Mary is Jesus' Mother. She is our Spiritual Mother and she is Mother to the Church.

4.  R.  We receive a special sharing in His life through Baptism. Mary lead us more and more on this journey to Him. Be our Mother to guide us on our way. Lead us ever closer to His Most Sacred Heart. Lead us to such deep love in His Heart. We ask this and we ask you to draw us ever closer to you and your most Pure Heart and the Heart of your Son, Jesus Christ, that beats with such love for each one of us today.

5.  R.  The most pure and tender Heart of our Mother will lead us ever closer to the burning love of His Heart.

6.  R.  She forever walks by our side as she was so close to Jesus all through His life.

7.  Sing:  Immaculate Mary

8.  Sing:  The Rosary Song

9.  Sing:  On This Day

10.  Sing:  Hail Holy Queen

The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth

1.  R.  Mary now reigns in the courts of Heaven with Jesus, her Beloved Son!

2.  Song:  Eye Has Not Seen

3.  R.  It is in surrender that we will be joined ever closer to Jesus' Heart, that we will grow in our union with Jesus, and that we, someday, will be with Him forever in Heaven.

4.  R.  We will be with the angels and saints — with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in such union if we go to heaven.

5.  R.  The intense feeling of oneness, the most wonderful feeling that you feel after Communion, is only a small amount compared to the intensity of union with God: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that we will experience in Heaven forever and ever and ever. There will be no more longing, no more wanting. We will know the love of God!

6.  R.  Our souls are restless until they rest in You, O Lord!

7.  R.  As a deer thirsts for water, our souls thirst for the Lord!

8.  Song:  May the angels lead you into Paradise. May the martyrs greet you on your way. May you see the face of the Lord this day. Alleluia, Alleluia.

9.  R.  The dropping of a pin, the batting of an eye and our life is ended. But Jesus and Mary are with us today. Jesus remains with us in His Divinity and humanity in the Eucharist, longing and waiting for us with His Divine Love and His Divine Life.

10. R.  Grace is outpoured in abundance through the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, our Savior.

This rosary was prayed just prior to the beginning of the Shepherds of Christ meeting. Many people were present.

Shepherds of Christ Meeting

Live in the Father's Will

The rosary was transcribed from a live tape.
Mary and the Sacred Heart appeared during the whole rosary.

Sorrowful Mysteries

Agony in the Garden

1.  R. God knelt in the Garden! Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who came to earth out of greatest love for us and He knelt in the Garden. Jesus saw before Him all the sufferings that He was about to undergo.

2.  R.  Jesus knew all the beatings. He knew He would be spit on. Jesus knew He would be crowned with thorns. Jesus knew they would poke at Him when He fell under His cross. Jesus saw all of these things.

3.  R.  Jesus called out to His Father:  If it be possible remove this cup, but not My Will but Thine be done!

4.  R.  Jesus came to show us the way. Jesus and Mary show us all through Their lives how they obeyed the  Father's Will. Jesus did the Father's Will. Mary did the Father's Will.

5.  R.  Jesus saw before Him everything that He would suffer. Jesus always did the Father's Will.

6.  R.  Jesus saw before Him all the souls that would be condemned to eternal damnation despite all His sufferings.

7.  R.  Jesus says over and over again, the greatest agonies were not the agonies He experienced to His physical body, but the agonies He experienced to His Heart, the indifference and neglect of the souls that He loves so much and how the hot and cold souls treat Him. How many times do we love Jesus so fervently and then forget Him as we go about our world. How this wounds Jesus—the souls that are hot and then cold!

8.  R.  Think of how it is in your own life when you are close to someone and they are cold to you. Jesus loves us with the most burning, burning love. Jesus longs for us to come and to be with Him. Jesus remains with us Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Tabernacle, on fire for love of us. Jesus waits for us! Think of the endless hours that He remains in the Tabernacles throughout the world and not one of His precious souls come to be with Him!

9.  R.  Look at the Consecrate Host! Do we realize that Jesus is truly present in the Consecrated Host? Are we in love with Jesus? Do we adore Jesus? And realize that God remains with us this day? We are humans and out of greatest love, the Master comes to us and remains with us in the Eucharist, waiting and longing for us to come and share our love with Him.

10. R.  It is because of the love that God has for us that He gives us a free will.

Song between decades:  A Song from Jesus

 

Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar.

1.  R.  Think of your own body and then think of someone beating and wounding you as they did to Jesus when they tied Him to the pillar! Think of the little cuts that we receive, but then think of what they did to Jesus! Hate and anger welled up deeply within their hearts, they beat Him with such force that He bled and His flesh hung from His body!

2.  R.  Do we realize that Jesus is truly in our midst this day? Do we realize that He is God and loves us so much? He wants to have a love relationship with each one of us. He is waiting for your love. He is waiting for you to tell Him how you love Him. He is waiting for you to take time in your busy day, everyday, to have that time alone with Him. Jesus is truly God. Jesus came to this earth. Jesus suffered all that He suffered through His Passion for love of us.

3.  Jesus:  I call out to you, My beloved ones. You do not know the sufferings that I went through for love of you. God is so good to you. You take it so lightly. I am truly the Son of God and I remain with you waiting for you to come and take the time for God and I remain with you waiting for you to come and take the time for our love affair. My Heart is burning and on fire for each one of you. I am calling you this day to busy yourself about your union with Me. It is only through My love radiating through you that the light will shine in the darkest night.  You are being called if you are here—have ears to listen! I am Jesus and I truly call you to take Me seriously! I want to have a love affair with you and I want you to be My soldiers, to spread My love to this darkened world!

4.  Jesus:  I plead! I ask! I beg! So many cannot let go of their world! I am truly in your midst! I write these letters, My Love Letters, to you with greatest love. I am so close to you this day. Open your hearts! Open your ears! Pray to the Spirit to fill you so that you are led to carry out the Father's Plan, for the Father's Plan is unfolding at the Shepherds of Christ and at the Center and you are being called to do the work that the Father is called you to do.

5.  R.  See Jesus as He stands at the pillar. Tied! Whipped! Scoffed at! Laughed at! Out of greatest love for each one of us He suffered this. But His greatest agonies were not the wounds to His body but the wounds to His Most Sacred Heart for He truly loves each one of us dearly. Jesus is calling out to you this night to draw ever closer to Him for He loves you so much.

6.  R.  Jesus stood in a puddle of His own blood. As He walked away, the earth was marked by His bloody footprints for it is through His blood that we are saved, that we can receive the new life that He came to give us.

7.  Song:  Little Baby Hands and Feet

8.  R.  Who are we that the Almighty God comes to us? Who are we that He remains with us? Who are we that He speaks to us? We are His beloved ones. He loves us dearly and He is calling out to us to come for His Love. We will spread His light in the darkness. We will help others to know His love. Souls will be lost, souls will be condemned forever to eternal damnation because they disobeyed God.

9.  R.  His greatest agonies were not the agonies that He experienced to His body, but the agonies that He experienced to His Most Sacred Heart.

10.  R.  It is in meditating on His Passion that we will more and more realize His immense love. We cannot light the world with the love of God unless we are fixed strongly in our hearts to His love. He calls out to us today, but we can run to our world and say that we do not have to listen to His call. However, Jesus is truly calling you to be His light that will shine in the darkest night.

Jesus is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

1.  R.  See Jesus surrender all through the Passion. They clothed Him in a dirty purple robe that they put on top of His open wounds. They gave Him a scepter and they pounded into His Most Precious Head a sharp crown of piercing thorns!

2.  R.  Force! There was always force that was applied to Jesus — to take His clothes and to beat Him, to put clothes on Him! Think of how that would be to have someone forcing you the way they did to Jesus! But Jesus did not fight back. Jesus did always the Will of the Father. He calls to us this day and asks us to surrender, to die to ourselves, to grow more and more in union with Him. It is the Father's plan that we become more like the self He created us to be. We are so precious to the Father. We are His creation, His precious ones! It is in being more likened to Jesus that we will find peace, joy and happiness in our hearts.

3.  R.  How we hold tightly to the things of this world in ways that are not pleasing to God when Jesus is waiting to pour out His Divine Love.

4.  R.  And Jesus sat as they mocked Him as a King! Jesus is truly the King of all Kings. Jesus is God! They spit on Him! They laughed at Him! And He loved those men who did this to Him. He loved them with the tenderest Heart on fire. Always love! His way is love! Love! Love! Love! Love those who persecute you! For it in loving that we show this world the message that Jesus came to teach.

5.  R.  Jesus calls us to use all our goods according to God's will. He calls us to two things: love of God and love of one another. He came, God, and took on a human nature to show us the way.

6.  R.  Out of greatest love the Father sent His only Son into the world. Jesus is the mediator between God and man. Jesus is a Divine Person with two natures: a divine nature and a human nature. Out of greatest love, He came for us.

7.  R.  If we realized just a minute amount of His love, we would never fear. He is in our midst this day and we are so fortunate because He is here in His Divinity and humanity present in the Eucharist.

8.  R.  His life, death and resurrection live on in the Church this day. We must pray for the Church and pray for the priests, and pray for the world for Jesus truly wants this. God outpours His grace to us in His Church. He gives to us the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Eucharist, Penance, Holy Orders, Matrimony and Anointing of the Sick.

9.  R.  See Jesus with His Head crowned with thorns, and the blood as it runs down the side of His face. They punctured His skull. This is the love that He has for us. Jesus is truly present today in the Eucharist.

10.  R.  Open up your hearts to Jesus who shed His blood for each and every one of us!

Jesus Carries His Cross Up Calvary

1.  R.  They stood around Jesus! Jesus' hands were tied in front of Him! They poked Him! They condemned Him to death!

2.  R.  They gave to Him a heavy cross that they put on His shoulder. Think of the pain to Jesus' shoulders and arms. Think of carrying the heavy cross on your shoulder. Jesus could not remove the cross. It became heavier and heavier. He became weaker and weaker. It felt as if His shoulder would break! The wounds! The pain! Think of all that Jesus endured. It is in meditating on His Passion that we will realize more and more His immense love, for He truly suffered and died for love of us!

3.  R.  Jesus could barely walk under the weight of the cross. It dragged behind Him. Jesus fell because the cross was so heavy. Jesus never gave up His cross, He collapsed under the weight of it!

4.  Jesus:  I call each one of you, My beloved ones, to such holiness. The road that you trod is hard. You must surrender. You must take your burdens to Me. You must let go. You must become in union with Me and let Me operate through you. You are so special to Me. I call out to you today. Will you come ever closer to Me and let Me work in you? Will you take your cross to Me? Will you let Me help you as you trod along? I am truly God. I am Mighty! I have all the power! And I am with you this day in all your trials. Do you not see that the trials that you are going through today are the very things that are leading you closer and closer to Me? I outpour My grace abundantly when you come to Me in the Eucharist.
 

Shroud

April 5, 2001

5.  R.  Veronica wiped the face of Jesus and on her cloth was the bloody imprint of His face. This is still with us today. You would be in such awe to see this cloth! But Jesus Christ, the risen Lord, remains with us no less present than the day that He carried His cross on His back in the Eucharist, in His Divinity and humanity, and we treat this so lightly!

6.  Song:  Only this I Want

7.  Jesus:  Take up your cross this day and follow Me for I am waiting for you. I am waiting to be ever closer to you and the reward that awaits you is beyond anything you could imagine!

8.  R.  They stripped our beloved Jesus of His garments. Total surrender! He was beaten! He was crowned with thorns! He was whipped! Always complying to the Will of the Father! Always with a perfect look of peace on His face because He knew the Father's love. The Father loves us with such love and it is through Jesus that we are led closer to the Father's love. Holy Spirit, transform us into the image of Jesus so that we can be led to the Father.

9.  Song:  I Love You Jesus

10.  Song:  Lord Let Me Walk

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1.  R.  Mary held the child Jesus in her arms. She cared for His little hands and feet. She washed His hands and feet and now she watched as they nailed His hands and feet to the cross.

2.  R.  Jesus' head was punctured with a crown of thorns. His body was covered from His head to His feet with wounds they had given to Him. Now, they nailed His precious hands — clear through His hands — to the cross! How deep are the wounds that penetrated His entire hand? And the blood ran down from His hands and from His feet!

3.  R.  Jesus hung from the cross, weakened from everything that He had gone through. But the last agony — to hang from the cross! Think of the hanging from nails! Think of the pain He must have experienced! Pain! Just pain to His body — not even considering the wounds! The pain of His shoulder! The pain of His arms! The way that He was hung! And He hung for three hours unable to move! Against the darkened sky, see Jesus as He hangs, not hanging straight as is depicted on the crucifixes, but see Him humped over after He has hung there for three hours!

4.  R.  Jesus says over and over again — Look at Him and see all He suffered and see all that Mary experienced, yet the greatest agonies were not the agonies He suffered to His body, but to His Most Sacred Heart for the love that He has for each one of us, for the fact that we take His love so lightly. God is in our midst this day. But He calls out to tell us that nothing that we have in this world can compare to what He has to give us. Nothing can satisfy the stalking soul except the love of God. The soul was created for the love of God and no matter how much we think we can fill our desires for love with other things — nothing, nothing, can satisfy us except the love of God. It is only in following the Father's plan that we will have true peace, joy and happiness. God the Father created us.

Song:  God's Love

5. R.  Doing God's Will is not necessarily just doing any good act that we pick and choose on our own, but doing God's Will is doing whatever He is calling us to do. God makes His Will clear to us when we sit in silence and pray.

6.  R.  When we pray to the Spirit, He fills us with Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding to know the Will of the Father.

7.  R.   The batting of an eye, the dropping of a pin and it is all over! What awaits us is our eternal reward forever and ever and ever if we love and serve the Lord! He asks us this day to go into the world and spread the love of His Most Sacred Heart and the love of His Mother's Heart to this world. His Heart was pierced with a lance and what came forth was blood and water. His Heart was pierced with a lance and the sacramental life of the Church was born through His pierced Heart. Water for baptism and blood for the Eucharist! Mary's Heart was pierced with an invisible sword. The Two Hearts of greatest Love! Mary asks us to see through her eyes, to be there and walk the Passion. It is in realizing this love that we will be enabled to go into the world and do the work that the Father has planned for us.

8.  R.  Jesus said that He gave Himself for love of us when He died on the cross. Jesus gives Himself to us this day. When we see the Consecrated Host raised, see the same Jesus Christ that hung on the cross, for it is truly Jesus that is there. Where Jesus is, so are the Father and the Holy Spirit. The Mass is so beautiful. The Father, Son and the Spirit, the Blessed Mother, all the angels and saints are there.

9.  R.  Dear Spirit, we ask you to help us to see where we are blind that we may now see all that God wants us to see, that we can be drawn ever closer to the love of God.

10.  R.  It is through the Spirit that we can have this intimacy with Jesus. We must pray to the Spirit every day to open our eyes for we are all like blind men until the Spirit outpours His gifts on us to help us to see beyond the things of the world.

 

This rosary was prayed before the statue of Our Mother of Sorrows during the Shepherds of Christ meeting. Mary and the Sacred Heart appeared the whole rosary.

My Dear Child, Do You Know I Never Leave You

There was a Glorious rosary given February 22, 1995 and Stations before the tabernacle in the morning. Seven sorrows were also given that day published in the Red Rosary book.

Stations given in early morning as Jesus spoke so strongly, with such emotion about His Passion before the tabernacle in the Holy Spirit Chapel of  the Holy Spirit Center.

 

 I Operate in you

Jesus:  My dear child,

    Do you know, I never leave you, you must surrender and come to My Heart. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus on FIRE for love of you. As you operate, I operate in you, make yourself fearless and unattached, you are My precious child.

R.    And He came and He outpoured His grace in abundance and they were touched by His love. Father, Son and Holy Spirit so present in their lives. He touched their lives and they loved others in this world deeply.

Jesus:   I am the Good Shepherd., I know mine and they follow Me. Follow Me my little lambs, I give you a free will with greatest love. You are free to do what I ask or reject Me. I want you to do the Father's work. Will you answer?

    Can you not watch one hour with Me. I give to you 24  hours a day. I want one hour in silent prayer. Come unto Me all who are weary and I will give you rest.

Glorious Mysteries  

    

The Resurrection

  1. On the third day, Jesus rose from the dead as He had foretold. Death has no power over Him!
  2. They had rolled the heavy stone in front of the tomb and His enemies believed that they had won. Jesus was locked in the tomb! These are truly the Glorious Mysteries for He rose triumphant on the third day!
  3. Mary Magdalene and some of the others went to the tomb. When they arrived, they saw the stone had been rolled back.
  4. Come Holy Spirit, fill us with the fire of Your love. Pour out to us Your Divine Love, Your Divine Life, so that we may partake more and more in this life and be raised to eternal life in heaven.
  5. Jesus walked with two disciples on the way to Emmaus and recounted for them all the scriptures in the Old Testament from the time of Moses that referred to Him.
  6. They did not understand that Jesus would die and then rise again. They did not recognize Him after He rose. You might think, 'oh, so blind were they! How could they not recognize Jesus?' But Jesus is in our midst this day. He is present right here with us. He is present in the tabernacle. He is present in us and in our world and the world continues to go on its way in blindness.
  7. Take the blinders from our eyes so that we may see more and more with the vision of God. As we unite with You, lead us ever closer to the vision of God.
  8. He gives us sufferings. He gives us trials. He allows all that happens to us to happen. It is in acceptance of all that He allows, and in focusing on Jesus, that we will have new life, new life in Him! He is forever present and forever ready to pour out to us His life in abundance. But we must realize that the way to Him is to follow Him. He came to carry His cross. He suffered and died so He could bring us new life!
  9. Song: I know Your love a little now, so dear You are to me. Come give me life, abundant life, I thirst to be with Thee.
  10. Who are we that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son into this world and His Son died on the cross for our redemption? Now He rises on the third day to bring us new life. He gives to the apostles the power to baptize and to forgive sins. It is through baptism that we are made children of God and heirs of heaven. We are given new life in baptism!

    We are on a spiritual journey. We are reborn in baptism as little babies on our journey, and our mother is our Spiritual Mother to lead us on our way to closer and closer union with Jesus, her beloved Son!

Song between decades: Come Holy Spirit, fill our hearts. Enkindle in us the fire of Your love. Come, Holy Spirit, fill our…

 

  

The Ascension

  1. Jesus took the apostles out to the town of Bethany and gave them His final blessing and left them in His peace. The ways of God are the ways of peace. The more we realize the immense love that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit have for us, that the three Persons are truly inside of us when we are in the state of grace, the more we then realize that no one can take away this indwelling of the Trinity within us. The more we pray and stay connected to Them, the more They lead us to peace. Peace, joy and happiness come from the realization of the presence of God within us!
  2. We walk this barren land not alone. We walk with the presence of the Trinity inside of us. We are temples of the Holy Spirit. It is in the realization of this divine gift that we are given that we will have peace within. As we look at Jesus all though the passion, the look of peace is always on His face, even though He suffers, because He knows the Father's love.
  3. Satan tries to distract us, tries to make us think ill thoughts. It is only in trusting God, in turning over entirely to Him our wills, our lives, our whole being, that we can have peace. It is in living in the Father's Will, in doing what He calls us to do, that we will have true happiness and peace.
  4. These are the Glorious Mysteries! Jesus truly rose from the dead! Can we even comprehend that a person who died could rise from the dead? This alone shows the magnificence of God's might!
  5. And the glories that followed! He raised His arms and ascended upward into the clouds. The apostles, as they looked from below, were awestruck to see Jesus go upward into the sky, into a cloud which took Him out of sight!
  6. They who walked and talked with Jesus, who were by His side, were filled with fear. As they were filled with fear, we should be gentle with ourselves when we are full of fear inside. We should realize that it was only through the power of the Spirit that they were transformed from fear to fearlessness. Almighty God can take us from the depths of doom and raise us to such immense heights, but it takes our will of surrendering to Him, of focusing on Him, of doing always the Father's Will, of living in the Father's Will as children who are being obedient to their Father.
  7. Song: I come to you with greatest love, I am your loving Savior. I am your God, I died for you. I come to you this day.
    Nothing feeds the hungry soul but the love and the life of God!
  8. He came to give us life. He nourishes this life with the Eucharist. This is Jesus truly present in His divinity and humanity. He feeds our life through His own flesh and blood! He feeds our life in Him through the divine love that He has left with us. He feeds this life through the Church, through the sacraments. He gives us the sacrament of penance whereby all our sins can be taken away through the power of the priest. God is so good to us that He truly feeds our life in Him!
  9. Song: I Am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me shall not hunger. He who believes in Me shall never thirst.
  10. He, God, lets us partake in His divine life, in His divine love, and He nourishes us with His very own flesh and blood!

The Descent of the Holy Spirit

  1. The apostles were full of fear and they locked themselves in the Upper Room. Jesus had told them that they would be baptized by the Holy Spirit.
  2. They were locked in the Upper room with the Virgin Mary and there appeared over their heads parted tongues of fire and the Holy Spirit descended upon them. Mary is the mother of the Church. She is our spiritual mother. She is the mother of Christ!
  3. Mary is our model. She is the spouse of the Holy Spirit. It is in modeling ourselves after Mary that we become more and more like Jesus. Mary, help us to love you, to be drawn ever closer to you. Dear Spirit, please transform us in the Heart of Mary into the image of Jesus so that we may be ever closer to our beloved Father.
  4. It is through Mary's pure and tender Heart that the Spirit transforms us more and more into the image of Jesus!
  5. Dear Spirit, give us courage to go out into this world and preach the Gospel as did the apostles, who were filled with such fearlessness. These were the same men who, out of great fear, had locked themselves in the Upper Room. The key is the Spirit! Transform us, Spirit, please! Give us the courage to do what the Father is asking us to do: to help carry out the Gospel to the world, to help to spread the love of Jesus!
  6. Please outpour Your Spirit onto this Center. Please let this Spirit dwell in us!
  7. Let those involved in Our Lady of Light Ministries and the Shepherds of Christ Ministries be filled with the Spirit so that it is the Spirit that moves in them, that draws them ever closer to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Christ, the Son of God!
  8. Transform all who are here to have the courage to carry out the worldwide plan that the Father has set before us. He Who has chosen us to be the Apostles of the Sacred Heart, to go into this world to spread the love of Jesus' burning Heart. May the Spirit move in each and every soul and draw souls ever closer to the Eucharist. For the power is truly in the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Christ, the Son of God!
  9. Song: Come Holy Ghost, Creator blest, and in our hearts take up Thy rest. Come with Thy grace and heavenly aid, to fill the hearts which Thou hast made, to fill the hearts which Thou hast made.
  10. And He gave to them the Eucharist to feed the life that He had imparted to them, and the Spirit moved within their souls to lead them ever closer to the love of God so that this love could radiate from their being and be seen in the world.

The Assumption of Mary into Heaven

  1. Mary was taken up into heaven, body and soul!
  2. But she remains with us this day. She is our spiritual mother. She is the mother of the Church. Jesus is alive in the Church today.
  3. Oh, how our mother is so much with us this very day!
  4. Dear Mary, hold in your Heart all the especially anointed priests of your Son, Jesus. Hold them in your Heart and, through the Holy Spirit, lead them ever closer to the Eucharistic Heart of your Son, Jesus.
  5. It is through the pierced Heart of your Son that the sacramental life of the Church was born-through the water, which represents baptism, and the blood, which represents the Eucharist. We are given life and we are fed. Hold the Church, and all those who minister there, in your Heart. Hold them ever close to you for you are their mother. Mother the Church! Hold them so close to you! Guide them! Protect them! Lead them through your spouse, the Holy Spirit, filled with the fire of God's love, into this world in which the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be triumphant!
  6. Help us in the Shepherds of Christ to carry out whatever is the Father's plan for renewing the Church, for spreading the love of His Most Sacred Heart to many people in the nursing homes, in the prisons, throughout the world. Give us the courage through the Holy Spirit to spread the love of the Two Hearts in this world that is in darkness.
  7. Dear Mary, help the priests, your beloved priest-sons, to realize the great mission to which the Father has called them. Help them to lead the flock to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Christ.
  8. Help us to be proud to be a part of your Church, to be a part of the living Body of Christ alive in this world today.
  9. The Church is the Body of Christ. He is the head and we are the members. We are all one in this Body of Christ. Unite us ever closer with you, Mary, mother of the Church. Lead all in the Church to the most burning love of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Christ, the Son of God!
  10. Oh no! Mary has not left! She is truly here in our midst! She is mothering us and she is mothering the Church!

Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts…

  

   

The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth

  1. There appeared in the sky a woman, clothed with the sun. The moon was under her feet and there were twelve stars about her head.
  2. Mary is Queen of Heaven and Earth! The Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph on this earth!
  3. There will be an era of peace. Peace is only found in God and in doing His Will. We must turn our hearts back to God, follow the Ten Commandments, do all that He is asking us to do, say we are sorry for our sins and draw our hearts into union with the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
  4. We are the children of the Father! Jesus loved us so much that He gave His very life for us. We are the favored children created uniquely by the Father and He cares for us this day with great love. Lead us ever closer to union with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit through the Immaculate Heart of our mother Mary!
  5. Song: Hail, holy queen enthroned above, O Maria! Hail, mother of mercy and of love, O Maria! Triumph, all ye Cherubim! Sing with us, ye Seraphim! Heaven and earth resound the hymn, Salve, salve, salve, Regina!
  6. All souls are joined in the Church with the souls in purgatory and with the angels and saints in heaven. We are all one in His Body. Let us love God, for we are children of God. We are brothers in Christ!
  7. Help us to see more and more the big picture. Help us to let go of little details and see more with the vision of God all that we need to see to do His work here on this earth-to let go of the little daily distractions, but to see that we are His soldiers marching on a world that is godless. Help us to realize that souls are at stake and that Mary and Jesus are calling us to be these soldiers to spread His love.
  8. Who are we that God is so good to us?
  9. Mary, our Queen, lead us ever closer to Jesus' Heart. Be with us as we walk with Jesus on Calvary. Be with us and lead us to everlasting life so that we may one day be united with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit forever and ever.
  10. May the saints and angels guide us on our way to eternal salvation. May we know God more and more. May He outpour His love on us, His beloved ones. We are His and He loves us so much!

Song after last decade: Come Holy Spirit, fill our hearts...

Song: Holy God, we praise Thy name. Lord of all, we bow before Thee. All on earth Thy scepter claim. All in heaven above adore Thee. Infinite, Thy vast domain, everlasting is Thy reign. Infinite Thy vast domain, everlasting is Thy reign!

The Seven Sorrows

    

The Prophecy of Simeon

Mary, Joseph and the child Jesus went to the temple. Simeon, the prophet, inspired by the Holy Spirit, met them and told Joseph and Mary of the great sufferings of Jesus and Mary. He told Mary that a sword would pierce her heart. From that point on, Mary ever remembered the prophecy of Simeon whenever she beheld her child. When she looked at His little body, even as an infant, she knew He would suffer. Every time she clothed Him and watched Him at play, her heart was torn in her chest as she knew what He would suffer. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

The Flight into Egypt

Joseph was told by the angel to flee. Joseph, Mary and the child Jesus had to flee because of what might happen to Jesus. They had to pack for a long stay. The child Jesus was so small! They left on their journey, hearts full of fear, trying to protect Jesus. They were forced to flee into Egypt.

  

 

Jesus Is Lost, In the Temple

Imagine the sufferings in Mary's heart when she realized the child Jesus was not with them. Think of how it would be to lose your child and not know where he was or if anything happened to him. With sorrow in their hearts, Mary and Joseph returned to Jerusalem to look for the child Jesus. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

  

Jesus Carries His Cross

Song: See the eyes that look at Mary, her tender infant child. See the child's Heart beat so tenderly, the Savior of the world!
See the eyes of Jesus and Mary as they met on Calvary. Mary's Heart knew Jesus' Heart so well! From the first moment of conception and throughout His life, Mary was so connected with Jesus and now she peered into His eyes. The crown of thorns adorned His Head! Blood ran down His face! A heavy cross on His back! Wounded, His whole body covered with bleeding wounds! And her whole life flashed before her, the life that she had spent with Jesus. This was the beloved child that she had held in her arms when Simeon told Mary that 'a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!'

 

Jesus Dies on the Cross

Mary stood under Jesus' cross as He was put to death. The child that she had held in her arms as Simeon prophesied, And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary! Now Jesus is dead on the cross! He gave His flesh, He gave His blood so that we might be with Him forever in heaven. He held not back. He gave His all. He calls out to us this day to see through the eyes of His mother as she appears and calls out with a Heart of great love, "Return to the love of my Son! He is with you this day. He remains with you, no less present than the day that He hung on the cross, in the Eucharist. He longs for you to come and be with Him. He is in your brother. How can you not love your brother when Jesus died for your brother?"

Her Heart was pierced with a sword. His Heart was pierced with a lance. What came forth was blood and water, the sacramental life of the church. He lives with us this day in the Church. He gives to us His sacraments, the source of His life! He gives to us the Sacrament of Penance whereby any sin that we commit can be taken away through the priest. He wants us to be so close to Him! He gives us everything to be close to Him. But we see with such limited vision only those things that are right before our face, when the true reality is that which we don't see with our eyes, the reality of the invisible divinity of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, in the consecrated Host! This is reality! This is our life! This is our power! This is God! And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

Jesus Is Taken Down from the Cross

If we ever doubted for one second that we were loved, we could visualize the picture of Mary as she sat beneath the cross with the lifeless, battered, bruised and bloodied body of her Son in her arms, the same child that she held when Simeon prophesied her suffering. He gave His last breath. He gave the last beat of His Heart. He gave His all! This is the way He complied with the Will of the Father. He came to show us the way. He died in perfect peace. To His death He was in peace because He knew the Father's love. The Father loves us so much that He gave His only begotten Son for love of us! The Spirit descended upon the Virgin Mary and the Word was made flesh! The love of the Two Hearts! Such immense love beating for us!

In all love there is suffering. Her Heart was pierced with a sword. His Heart was pierced with a lance. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

  

Jesus Is Locked in the Tomb

And now Jesus, His body lifeless, is locked in a tomb! What cold reality for Mary to realize that His body is now gone! A stone separated her from her Son!

He gave His last breath! He gave the last beat of His Heart for love of each one of us! And she comes to us this day with her sweet, beautiful voice and she asks us to go to her Son and love Him! How can we refuse Jesus who spread His arms and gave His life for each and every one of us? How can we not trust Him when He loved us so much that He allowed them to tear His flesh, to crown Him with piercing thorns and, lastly, to hang Him on a cross? He truly gave His life for us! He, truly God, is with us this day, the same as the day He died on the cross, in the tabernacle! And we take it so lightly! Death has no power over Him! Locked in the tomb for three days, He rose triumphant on the third day as He had foretold. He comes to give us life. He gives us the sacrament of Baptism that initiates us into His life, that makes us children of God and heirs of heaven if we remain in the state of grace. He asks two things: love of God and love of one another! He came to show us the way and His way is love. To His death on the cross He loved each one of us! He calls out to each one of us here today to be His soldiers, to march on a world that has forgotten God, that has forgotten what it is like to love! It is a battle to live in this world. But the battle is won with hearts that are filled with His love, empowered by the grace and might that He pours out in the Eucharist. He calls out for us to come to the Eucharist and to the tabernacle and be fed with His very flesh and blood. To feed on Divine Life, the greatest nourishment, the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God! This is the love He gives. This is the love He asks us to share.

     

February 22, 1995 - Before Stations

Mighty Medicine  

  

R.  Filled up with the immense presence and He said in a loud and direct voice. Very strong. How can I tarry when Jesus says this to me.

Jesus:  From the tabernacle I cried out, I filled you with this immense realization of My presence. You must circulate these letters for the sake of souls. I have given you a great mission to spread My love to this world. These are My letters, I beg you, beg you to do as I ask. Pray to the Spirit for fearlessness to do what I ask you to do. I am God and I am speaking to you. I do not want you to hold back to please people, I want you to speak out. I am God and I am giving you My letters for My hurting souls.

    Rita look at this world, do you see, or do you want to be popular. You have what you need to do what I am asking you, I am giving you abundant graces to tell all about these letters of My love.

    No one will listen if you hold back I beg you, I beg you, I beg you.

    I called out to you and you listened to My pleading. My child, you are key to spreading My love in this world. DO NOT Hold back. Read this letter to Fr. Carter. I beg you to not let Me down. Do not forsake Me, I am calling you to be about My work. These letters are a big part of the Father's Plan. Time is so short. I beg you to listen to Me. I beg you. Souls are at stake. Please Rita do not worry what others think, I call you as My apostle to spread My love to this world. Will you answer?

R.  Then He gave me the stations and I cried so hard!!

Stations of the Cross
at a Shepherds of Christ Meeting
 

1.  Jesus Is Condemned to Death
Jesus:
My dear child, with angry hearts and hatred on their faces, they poked at Me and condemned Me to death. I stood so silent, My hands tied, in perfect peace, because I knew the Father's love. I knew the Father's Will. You too will stand your trials in perfect peace, the more you realize the immense love the Father, Son and Holy Spirit have for you. Pray to the Spirit to transform you more and more into My image and, through this transformation, you will be led ever closer to the Father. Oh, how I love you!

2.  They Give Jesus the Cross
Jesus: They gave Me a heavy cross, laden with the sins of the world. They placed it on My shoulder. It was so heavy I felt as if My shoulder would break. I ask you to carry little crosses, to experience little pains. I could not remove this cross from My shoulder. The weight was unbearable. It is through My suffering and death that you receive new life. It is through your sufferings this day that you will grow in your life with Me. Oh, child, I loved you so much that I took up the cross of salvation. I love you. Please realize that I am talking to you here. To My death I loved you. Oh, how I love you!

3.  Jesus Falls the First Time
Jesus: The cross was so heavy I could hardly walk. I held on to My cross for greatest love of you and in compliance with the Will of My Father. It became so hard to walk! The cross was so heavy! I fell. I fell and the cross fell on Me. They poked at Me, they struck Me, they demanded I get up. The pain from the instruments they used to poke Me and strike Me was so great! I somehow managed to get up.

When you fall under the weight of your cross, come to My Eucharistic Heart. I am no less present in the tabernacle and in the Eucharist than on the day I carried My cross. I wait with the same love that I had for you when I carried this cross and suffered such agony. Oh, how I love you!

4.  Jesus and Mary Meet
Jesus: I saw the face of My beautiful Mother. She was weak, her face reddened and full of tears. I saw her tender heart, her love, her anguish, her pain. I saw My dear Mother Mary. My Heart was comforted by the sight of her, but torn by her suffering.

Mary: As I looked into the eyes of my beloved Son, I saw His love. His head, bleeding and wounded. His body weak. His clothes covered with blood. I looked into His eyes and I saw His love for you. I call out to you today. I appear today with a face full of anguish and tears. I appear to call you back to the love of my Son. See through my eyes, as I peer into His eyes, the love He has for you this day to give of Himself for you. Oh, He loves you so much, my little children. See through my eyes the love of my Son. Oh, how He loves you!

5.  Simon of Cyrene Is Forced to Help Jesus Carry His Cross
Jesus: The cross was so heavy I could not move. My persecutors became angry and forced a man to help Me. The cross was so heavy the two of us could barely move it. How is your cross today? Does it seem so heavy you cannot go on? I am forever watching you. When you are suffering the greatest, I am very close to you. It is in immense suffering that you realize My great love for you. Pray for grace to do always the Father's Will. Pray for grace to grow in your knowledge and love of Me.

6.  Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus
Jesus: My face was covered with blood. From the crowd Veronica came forward with a cloth to wipe My face. On the cloth I gave to you an imprint of My bloodied face. This, My children, remains with you this day as a sign of My immense love for you. But more than any cloth, look beyond the visible consecrated host. I, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, remain with you, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, in the Eucharist this day, waiting and longing to be with you. Oh, how I love you!

7.  Jesus Falls the Second Time
Jesus: Oh, dear ones, the road became harder and harder to walk. The cross was becoming heavier, My body weaker and weaker. My shoulders and arms hurt so much! My head throbbed as I walked. The blood came from My body, from My head to My feet. I was covered with open wounds. I could not go any farther. I stumbled and fell. Again they poked at Me, only harder, and with such hatred they kicked Me. Such vileness in the hearts of men! My greatest agony was not the agonies of My body, but the agonies of My heart for the love I have for all My precious souls. I loved them so dearly. I loved those who persecuted Me. Oh, how I love you!

8.  Jesus Meets the Women of Jerusalem
Jesus: The women came to Me with their children, their tender hearts crying and wanting to comfort Me. I saw their love, their care. I saw the coldness of men's hearts for all time, the hatred, the anger, the sins, all the souls that, despite all of My sufferings and death, would be condemned to eternal damnation. I told the women to weep not for Me, but for themselves and their children. My greatest agonies were the agonies of My Most Sacred Heart. Oh, how I love you!

9.  Jesus Falls the Third Time
Jesus: I fell hard the third time. I was so weakened I could not go on. My body collapsed under the cross from such exhaustion! My child, My child, My greatest agonies were not the wounds to the body. They were the wounds I experienced to My heart. Do you know a little more now how I love you? It is in meditating on My Passion and death that you will realize My immense love for you. When you fall, when you struggle, I give you the grace to get up. I never give you more than you can handle. Your strength will come from Me. Come to My Eucharistic Heart. I am waiting for you this day. Oh, how I love you!

10.  Jesus Is Stripped of His Garments
Jesus: They took Me to the hill to crucify Me. They angrily stripped Me of My garments. They took off My clothes to whip Me. They had covered My bloody wounds with a dirty purple robe. Now, total surrender-they took off My clothes. I showed you the way to surrender, always complying with the Will of the Father. It is in living in His Will that you will have peace and joy, and life eternal some day. Oh, how I love you!

11.  They Nail Him to the Cross
R.  See Mary as she holds the little Baby Jesus. See her as she washes His tender hands and feet. See her now as she watches as they pound into those same hands and feet the gigantic nails that fix Jesus to the cross.

Mary: Oh, my dear ones, my heart was torn in my chest as they nailed His hands and feet to the cross. I ask you this day to walk the Passion with me and see through my eyes the love He has for you. He truly was nailed to the cross.

Jesus: They pounded the nails into My first hand, then they stretched My body and nailed My other hand. The blood poured from these wounds that went totally through My hands. My pain was so immense, but then they nailed My feet! You do not know what pain I suffered, My child. My children, My children, for each one of you I suffered this pain. Oh, how I loved you!

12.  Jesus Dies on the Cross
(Silence.)
R.  He hung for three agonizing hours on the cross against the darkened sky. His greatest agonies were not the agonies of His body, but those of His Heart for the great love He has for each and every soul.

Jesus: I gave Myself to you, My dear ones. I gave My all. I hung with My arms spread in total surrender. My head was punctured; My hands and feet were nailed to the cross. I gave Myself to you. I give Myself to you this day in the Eucharist. I give Myself to you. I, God, give you Myself! What more do you want?

Song: Oh, burning Heart, oh, Love divine, etc.

R.  They pierced His Heart with a lance and what flowed forth was blood and water, the sacramental life of the Church, water for Baptism and blood for the Eucharist. His life, death and resurrection live on in the Church this day.

13.  Jesus Is Taken Down from the Cross and Placed in the Arms of His Mother
R. 
His totally lifeless body was placed in the arms of His most loving Mother. As she had held the little baby body in her arms, she now received His bloodied, bruised body in her arms. This is how He obeyed the Father's Will. Jesus gave His life for us. The Father gave His only Son because He loves us so much. Mary, His Mother, our Mother and the Mother of the Church, is forever by His side. See Jesus in the arms of His loving Mother under the cross. This is love.

Mary: I held His lifeless body in my arms. See through my eyes the love He has for you this day. He gives Himself to you today in the Eucharist. He loves you so much!

14.  Jesus Is Locked in the Tomb
R. 
His enemies rolled the stone up to the tomb and were pleased to have buried Jesus. Mary, outside the tomb, wept bitterly. The cold reality that He was dead! But death has no power over Jesus for on the third day He rose, triumphant, from the tomb! We are partakers in His divine life. Death has no power over Jesus. He is with us this day. He comes to bring us life to the full. He loves us so much!

A Little Tiny Lady Drove the Big Truck

R.    ( a man blew his horn because I had a right arrow)

    Jesus said: It is not he who blows his horn the loudest that has the might and the power. A little tiny person can move a mountain if they are fixed on Me. See a little tiny lady driving a big truck, so big it takes up the whole road. What is the true power, it is the Lord Jesus Christ joined as one with a person. The power is in the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. He leads us ever closer on our road to sanctity. God is one, true divine. Through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, transformed by the Spirit we are led ever closer to Jesus and closer to the Father. What a good God to care and love for us.

Mary is the Mother of the Church

        R.  Mary is the Mother of the Church.

        Pentecost

        Mary in the Midst of the Apostles —
            the beginning of the Church —

        Mary is so important to the Church.

        Mary was pregnant — she cried out to be delivered.

        Mary is bringing forth children, in the Church.

 John 19: 25-27

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then to the disciple he said, ‘This is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

 

 

        R.  Mary is the Mother of the Church.
        Eve is the Mother of the living.


        Christ loves His body the Church.

        Jesus is the bridegroom.   

        The Church is His bride.

        He loves her.

 

        The New Adam.

        The New Eve.

 

        Dear Sacred Heart of Jesus from your pierced Heart the Church was born.

        Mary is our spiritual Mother.

 

John 19: 26-27

Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, 'Woman, this is your son.' Then to the disciple he said, 'This is your mother.' And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

 

        R.  John represented all of us.

        In giving Mary to him as spiritual mother, Jesus was also giving Mary to all of us as our spiritual Mother.

 
 

 John 19: 25-27

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then to the disciple he said, ‘This is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

R.  The fact that Mary is our Mother, the fact she has such a powerful role to play in our salvation in no way detracts from the mediatorship of Christ.

Fr. Carter says:

    

Excerpt from Mother at Our Side by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J. pp. 4-8

In saying that Mary is our spiritual mother, we are saying that Mary is the mother of our Christ-life. What is this life? Can we define it?

   At Baptism the Persons of the Trinity communicate so intimately to us that, as a result, they leave their imprint or image upon us. This Trinitarian image is our life of sanctifying grace. This life of grace is a created participation in God's life, and since this gift of grace is mediated by Christ in His humanity, this Trinitarian image also has a Christic aspect. Christ as man has shown us how to live a God-like existence. He has shown us how to live the life of grace. This life of grace we possess allows us to enjoy the special presence of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Truly, the divine Persons dwell within us.

   Whether we refer to this life as the Christ-life, the life of grace, life in the Holy Spirit, or by other names, we are referring to one and the same reality. This reality, again, is the Christic, Trinitarian image given us through the Trinitarian communication. 

   St. Paul speaks of our life of grace in terms of our being baptized into the death and resurrection of Jesus (Rom. 6:1-11). Again, Jesus mediates our life of grace. He has shown us how to live a Christ-like existence. Since Jesus' paschal mystery of death-resurrection sums up His own human existence, so it sums up our own. This is what St. Paul is telling us. Paul tells us that we live our life of Baptism, our life of grace, by continually dying and rising with Jesus—rising to a greater share in Christ's resurrection. Indeed, we live resurrection now and hereafter. Living death-resurrection involves all of our Christian activities. While not giving an all-inclusive list, we do include the following: the reading of Scripture, prayer, the performance of daily duties, the doing of penance, making sacrifices, our jobs, periods of rest and relaxation, sharing meals with loved ones, reception of the sacraments, and, especially, participation in the Eucharist which is both sacrifice and sacrament.

   This is our glorious existence made possible by God's great love for us and a major truth of this glorious existence is the fact that Jesus has given us Mary as our spiritual mother. Mary is the Mother of our Christ-life. In her loving, maternal role, she cooperates with the Holy Spirit in forming Christ in us. ...

   Mary our mother is ever with us, guiding us, teaching us, caring for us, protecting us, loving us. With her maternal assistance we go to the Father through and with Christ in the Holy Spirit.

   Mary nourishes our growth in Christ with a very tender and specialized love for each of us. She regards each of us as a precious, unique individual. ...

   This is the awesome and consoling truth—you and I are very precious to Mary. She loves us much more than we can ever fathom. It is our great privilege and responsibility to love her in return. She asks for this love, she asks for our trust. As we give our love and trust to our mother, she wants us to come to her at all times and in all circumstances.

   Are we sorrowful, anxious, troubled? Let us go to Mary our mother and ask her to console us. Let us ask her for the grace to handle our sorrow, our anxieties, our troubles properly—according to God's will. In this way our suffering will bring us closer to Christ as it simultaneously allows us to contribute to the ongoing Christianization of the world.

   Are we joyful, happy, basking in the glow of a goal successfully accomplished? Let us go to Mary and ask her to help us handle our joy, our happiness, our success as God intends. Let us petition her not to allow our joy to make us forgetful of God, our God Who is the source of all true joy, success, and happiness.

   Are we finding it particularly difficult to follow Christ in the here-and-now? In child-like trust we can approach our mother. Let us ask her for the grace to realize that the following of Christ is not always easy—that at times being a follower of Christ challenges our courage in a special way. We can also ask Mary to help us realize that even at such difficult times, Christ's grace makes our burden relatively light. Jesus has told us: 

   Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.
   Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.
(Mt.11:28-30). 

   Are we finding it is particularly easy to follow Christ in the here-and-now? Let us go to Mary and ask her for the grace to remain humble. Let us beseech Mary to keep us from being inflated with pride, and ask her to help us realize that without Jesus we can do nothing. 

   Mary, then, asks for our complete trust. She wants us always to seek shelter under her maternal mantle. She invites us to come to her in all circumstances—whether it be in joy or sorrow, success or failure, laughter or tears. Mary wants us to share in her maternal wisdom so that we may understand how to use our various experiences to come closer to God in Christ. Sharing our lives with Mary in this fashion, and on a consistent basis, requires that we love her, that we trust her, that we surrender ourselves to her maternal love.

   Help us, Mother Mary, to probe ever more deeply into the depths of your love for us. Help us to realize more and more that to be loved by you is to experience a sweetness, a warmth, a tenderness, a serenity, a security, which makes us cry out, "O Mother, how good and loving you are!"

  

Excerpt from Mother at Our Side by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J. pp. 68-71

    Being Mother of Christ, Mary is also spiritual Mother of His members whom Christ has formed into His body, the Church. She is also model of the Church as all good mothers are models for their children. Mary, the best of mothers, is the perfect exemplar, the perfect model, of what it means to be a follower of Christ. She guides the entire Church in greater assimilation to Christ.

    If we claim to love Mary, we must also love what she loves. Being Mother of the Church, Mary obviously loves her Church very deeply. As children of Mary, as followers of Christ, we also must deeply love the Church. Sad to say, there are many in today's Church who do not love her as they should. ...

    In loving the Church which is so dear to Christ and to Mary, let us work to further the good which presently exists in the Church, and labor to correct that which should not be. Indeed, there is much good in today's Church. In many members of the Church, there is a deep hunger for a more profound spirituality. There are lay people living exemplary lives, both the married and the single, as they strive to be a light in the market place. There are religious, priests, and bishops who are working with the Holy Father to make the Church more what she should be, in this, one of her most critical hours. 

    Sorry to say, however, all is not well in the Church. There are deep divisions. Some of the divisions are caused by false teachings. Such teaching has given rise to apostasy and schism.

    Mary, however, has launched a counter attack, laboring for the renewal of the Church in many ways. 

    It is up to each of us to do our share in building up the Church, this Church which is the mystical body of Christ. Through our Eucharistic participation, through our prayer and penance—through all our activity done in union with Christ and Mary—let us all strive to bring the Church closer to its model, Mary. Let us work so that the Church more and more reflects Christ as it comes closer to the one who so eminently reflects Christ, Mary herself. In her Immaculate Conception, her fullness of grace, her sinlessness, her bodily assumption into Heaven, Mary indeed is the perfectly and fully redeemed one. She is the one who has been perfectly assimilated to Christ. She is the model the Church more and more strives to imitate. The rest of the Church will never mirror forth Christ as brilliantly as does Mary. We can, however, approach more closely to this ideal who is Mary. 

    Mary loves her Church with a love whose depths we cannot fully fathom, so we should ask her to help us obtain the grace to increase our own love for the Church. Let us ask her, this dearest and most loving mother, to keep us close at her side as she labors for the renewal of the Church. She invites us to assist her.

 

Excerpt from Mother at Our Side by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J. pp. 72-75

The liturgy is the public worship of the Church. Our Christian existence is rooted in the liturgical action of the Church. Two very important dimensions of the Church's liturgy are the sacraments, andmost importantlythe Mass.

Christ offers himself through the Church and her sacraments so that we might become ever more united with Him. This incorporation into Christ begins at baptism, through which we become a member of Christ and His Church. It means being assimilated to His paschal mystery of death-resurrection, since this was the summary event of Christ's existence. Death-resurrection was the central mystery by which Christ gave us life, and it is the central mystery which each Christian must relive in Christ.

Each one of the sacraments deepens our incorporation into Jesus' death-resurrection. Each one achieves this in a somewhat different manner according to its primary purpose. Finally, and very importantly, each of the sacraments deepens this incorporation within an ecclesial framework. The sacraments, because they are realities of both Christ and His Church, intensify our relationship not only with Jesus, but also with the members of the Church, and with all others also.

Our contact with the death-resurrection of Jesus is most especially renewed and deepened through our participation in the Eucharistic sacrificethe Mass. It shows the intimate connection between the sacraments and the Mass, as both intensify our assimilation to Jesus in His paschal mystery of death-resurrection.

The Eucharistic sacrifice makes present the Christ-event or mystery of Christ as centered in Jesus' death-resurrection. He, Who was the priest and victim upon Calvary, is also the priest and victim in the Eucharistic sacrifice. Christ becomes really present through the words of consecration. Hence, in an unbloody manner, He makes present the one sacrifice of Calvary. Obviously, we were not active participants in Christ's sacrifice on Calvary. However, in the Mass, Christ invites us to offer along with Him. The Eucharist is Christ's sacrifice, but, by God's gracious design, it is also the Church's sacrifice.

In the Mass we offer ourselves along with Christ Who is chief priest and victim. As Christ's offering of Himself is present in the Eucharistic sacrifice, so likewise is our offering of ourselves. Furthermore, just as Christ's offering on Calvary included everything in His life, so also the offering we make of ourselves at the Eucharist should include all those actions we perform according to God's will in Christbearing properly with pain, frustration, failure, misunderstanding, boredom, anguish of spiritthis is what we offer at the altar. Loving another, and being loved by that other, enjoying success, feeling satisfaction in a task well done, enjoying meals shared with loved ones, drinking in the morning freshness, feeling the cool spring breeze, relishing the magnificent colors of autumn leavesall this we also offer with Jesus. The Eucharistic offering gathers up what would otherwise be fragmented pieces of our lives and gives them a marvelous unity, a Christic unity. The Eucharistic sacrifice unites all these aspects of our lives with the love, the beauty, and the strength of Jesus' offering and presents them to the Father in the Holy Spirit with Mary our Mother at our side. As Mary was present at Calvary's offering, so is she present as that sacrifice really becomes present in an unbloody manner in the Mass.

At the Eucharistic mealat communion timewe receive Christ in a very special and intimate manner. He gives Himself to usbody, blood, soul, and divinity. What an awesome reality! We have to pray for an increased appreciation of this tremendous Self-giving on the part of Jesus. We have to pray for the grace to grow in the determination to love and live Christ more deep1y as we leave each Mass. This ever greater love for Christ, this ever greater putting on of Christ, should be the result of each Eucharistic participation.

The Christ Who loves us with an unfathomable love, Who gives Himself so completely to us in each Eucharistic meal, wants us to allow Him to live in and through us in an ever greater fashion. If He, in His great love for us gives Himself completely to us, should not we strive for our own complete gift of self to Jesus? Obviously, our gift of self will never equal Christ's perfect gift of Himself to us, but we can always grow in our gift of self by permeating it with an ever greater love. The love of Christ's Eucharistic Heart, this Heart which for love of us was pierced with a soldier's lance as He hung in agony upon the cross, calls for this love of ours. Who can refuse Him? Who wants to refuse Him?

 

February 23, 1995
Feast of St. Polycarp

 

This rosary was prayed before Jesus in the Tabernacle in the Holy Spirit Chapel. Rita, Don and Marty were present.

Jesus appeared in great light during the rosary. He looked "red" and the light was flashing brightly.

 

Joyful Mysteries

 

The Annunciation

1.  R.  The angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and asked her to be the Mother of Jesus.

    Song:  The Angel Gabriel

2.  R.  Mary lived in the Father's Will.

3.  Mary said, ‘You see before you the Lord’s servant, let it happen to me as you have said.’ And the angel left her.   Luke 1: 38

4.  R.  God the Father so loved the world He sent His only Son into the world born of the Virgin Mary.

5. 

The Word became flesh,
he lived among us,
and we saw his glory,
the glory that he has from the Father
   as only Son of the Father,
full of grace and truth. John 1: 14

R. Who are we that God sends His Son into this world and that His Son, Jesus Christ, takes on a human nature? Jesus is our Mediator with the Father.

6.  R.  There is such intimacy between Jesus and His Mother. Jesus wants us to go through His Mother to become ever closer to Him.

7.  R.  Jesus loves His Mother so much. He gave to John His very Mother. He gave Mary to us to be our Spiritual Mother. She is the Mother of the Church. He wants us to go through Mary to be joined ever closer to Him.

8.  R.  Mary leads us from our infancy as our Spiritual Mother — if we let  her. On our spiritual journey God gives us a more profound knowledge and love of God and leads us in deeper union to Him. Mary is our Spiritual Mother. She nurtures us, cares for us and leads us to close union with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit with Mary His Mother?

9.  R.  Through the Holy Spirit, the child Jesus was born.

10.  R.  Jesus shows us how important the Virgin Mary is as a Mother to each one of us. Jesus chose a woman, Mary, as the means to come into this world.

And Jesus crowns her as Queen of Heaven and Earth. This is Jesus' Mother! It is through her we are led to closest intimacy with His Most Sacred Heart. Mary is the Mediatrix of all graces. Jesus loves His Mother and He wants us to seek out and love His Mother.

Song between decades: Ave, ave, ave Maria

  

 

The Visitation

1.  R.  See Mary as she travels to visit her cousin Elizabeth, the child Jesus within her womb. Jesus is God, in all His Majesty and Might, yet He comes to this earth within the womb of Mary. We do not see indication of Jesus' Majesty and Might as Mary carries the child Jesus in her womb. All we see is the Blessed Virgin. Jesus remains with us this day in the consecrated host. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is truly present in the consecrated host.

2.  R.  Mary travels to her cousin Elizabeth's and when she arrives, the baby in Elizabeth's womb leaps for joy. John the Baptist, a voice crying in the desert,

 

So he said, ‘I am, as Isaiah prophesied:

    A voice of one that cries in the desert:
    Prepare a way for the Lord.
    Make his paths straight!’ 
John 1: 23

even before his birth proclaims such joy in the womb of his mother, Elizabeth.

Sing:  A Voice Cries out in the Wilderness

3.  R.  Elizabeth is filled with the Spirit and she cried out:  

‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord? Luke 1: 42-43

R.  The servant usually goes to the Master. Jesus came to us in Mary's womb. Mary visited Elizabeth. Jesus comes to us today in the Eucharist. Jesus is God yet He comes to mere humans out of great love.

4.  R. Mary is filled with the Holy Spirit and cries out in a loud voice her Magnificat.

5.  Song:  My Soul Rejoices

6. 

because he has looked upon
   the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
   all generations will call me blessed,  Luke 1: 48

7.  for the Almighty has done great things for me. Holy is his name,  Luke 1: 49

8.  R.  We are blind! We do not see! We see only what is visible and before our eyes. We want to learn with the use of our eyes and our ears. We must reach further and further and pray to the Spirit to fill us with knowledge in our hearts. Jesus dwells in the Tabernacle. Jesus was inside His Mother's womb. Mary carried the child Jesus, we do not see the majesty and the might of the Almighty God who is truly present, within our midst and in the Tabernacle.

9.  Song:  O Holy Mary

R. Mary is the Mother of God! Do we realize what this means?

10.  R.  Mary, conceived without sin and with a pure and tender Heart, is our model. It is in following after Mary and modeling our behavior after her that we will become more like Jesus, the Son of God!

Song between decades:  Ave, ave ave Maria

  

 

The Birth of Jesus

1.  R.  God, with all His might and majesty chooses to come into this world in a little baby body. See a little baby!

2.  R.  God the Father so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son into the world to be born. The Word was made flesh! Jesus Christ, a Divine Person with two natures: a human nature and a Divine nature, lived on this earth to show us the way. He was born from Mary's womb. He came, He humbled Himself.

3.  R.  Through His life, death and resurrection, Jesus has come to give us life, and to give us this life in abundance. Jesus loves us so much that He was born a baby in poverty in the town of Bethlehem. Jesus was born in a stable because there was not room for Him in the Inn.

4.  R.  The horn that beeps the loudest is not the mightiest! The person that is fixed in union with God has such might that he can move a mountain! God is mighty! He is all powerful! Yet Jesus was born in a little stable in the town of Bethlehem. Jesus was laid on bare wood. He comes without noise, without proclamation. But a star shines above Him, a star from the heavens, proclaiming that Jesus Christ is truly the Son of God!

5.  R.  Who are we that the Son of God remains with us this day in this room in the Eucharist, in His Divinity and humanity, no less present than the day He was born in a stable in Bethlehem. He is in this room at this very moment with the same love that He had that led Him to come, to give His life and to rise on the third day in order to give us new life.

6.  Song:  A Song from Jesus

7.  R.  Jesus came into this world a little baby so that we may have life eternal if we love and serve Him.

8.  R.  Jesus laid His head on bare wood and at His death, His head hung from a cross. Jesus showed us the way, the way to comply to the Father's will. As Mary always said:  

Mary said, ‘You see before you the Lord’s servant, let it happen to me as you have said.’ And the angel left her.  Luke 1: 38

R.  Mary always did the Will of the Father! Jesus always did the will of the Father! It is in living in the Father's will that we will obtain happiness, joy and peace. If we try to follow our own will, opposed to God's will, we will not be at rest.

9.  R.  Surrender! Surrender! Surrender! All through the lives of Jesus and Mary, they surrendered to the will of the Father. Not just doing the Father's will, but as a child, living in the will of their Father!

10.  R.  It is through Jesus' birth that we are made brothers in Christ. God is our Father. We are one in Him! 

Song between decades:  Ave, ave ave Maria

 

 

The Presentation

1.  R.  The child Jesus is taken up to the Temple by Mary and Joseph.

2.  R.  The old prophet, Simeon, was told by the Spirit that he would not die until he had seen the Messiah. He was led to the Temple by the Spirit.

3.  R.  Simeon held the child Jesus and he prophesied the sufferings of Jesus and Mary to come.

4.  R.  From that moment on, whenever Mary looked at her beloved child, she remembered the prophecy of Simeon and her Heart was in such sorrow.

5.  R.  It is through the pierced Heart of Jesus that the sacramental life of the Church was born.

6.  R.  Before Jesus ascended into Heaven, He gave to the Apostles the power to baptize. It is in Baptism that we are made children of God and heirs of Heaven, that we share in His life in a special way. Jesus outpours His grace. We are given so many gifts in Baptism!

7.  R.  As Jesus was presented in the Temple, it reminds us that in our own Baptism that we are reborn into His life, this sharing in His life, through Baptism.

8.  R.  Our human natures are raised to such heights through the sacrament of Baptism.

9.  R.  Help us always to live out our commitment to God we made when we were baptized.

10.  R. We are called through Baptism to go out and spread the Good News, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to this world.

Song between decades:  Ave, ave ave Maria

  

 

The Finding of Jesus in the Temple

1.  R.  When Jesus was twelve years old He was taken up to the Temple for the feast of the Passover.

2.  R.  When the Passover was over, His parents left with the caravan and did not realize that they had left Jesus behind.

3.  R.  With their hearts filled with such sorrow, they returned to the Temple to search for the child Jesus.

4.  R.  Jesus told them that He was about His Father's business as He was teaching the doctors in the Temple. But then He went down and was subject to them. Are we about our Father's business? The Father has a unique and special plan for each one of us.

5.  R.  We are the Father's children. The relationship between us and the Father should be as His favored, precious children that He loves so much.

6.  R.  Jesus created us so special, so unique. For each one of us He has this unique plan. It is only in living in His will that we will have peace, love and joy. If we try to go against His will, we will not be happy.

7.  R.  The will of God is made known to us in the quiet of our hearts. When we are in communion with God, it is through the Spirit that He releases His gifts of Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding to know more and more what the Father's plan is for each one of us. We can only know what God plans for us by listening and being obedient to Him.

8.  R.  And Jesus cried out from the Tabernacle to come to Him and abide ever so closely within His Most Sacred Heart. His Heart is beating and on fire. It is waiting and longing for our love. He wants each one of us to be in close union with Him.

9.  R.  Do we blush to be in love with someone? Jesus blushes for us here. He loves us so much. His Heart is burning with abundant love for each one of us. He bids us to come and be in closer union with His Most Sacred Heart.

10.  Song:  I Love You Jesus

Song after last decades:  Ave, ave ave Maria

This rosary was prayed before Jesus in the Tabernacle in the Holy Spirit Chapel. Rita, Don and Marty were present.

Jesus appeared in great light during the rosary. He looked "red" and the light was flashing brightly.

 

February 24, 1995 - 4:45   

My Precious Savior

R.   My precious Savior, how I adore and worship You, You are worthy of all praise, you are the Son of God the Savior of the world.

Jesus:  I am Jesus, your heart is filled with fear. Harken to Me, you are not perfect, you are a sinner, you make mistakes, I do not love you less. Recognize all your sins, do not complain, do not exaggerate, what comes from your mouth is coming from within. Make your heart pure. Do not complain about your brother, live to spread My light to all, this is sainthood, when you talk to give   love. Your trials you hold in and discuss with Me. You complain endlessly throughout the day, when you could have spread My love, you are spreading darkness. My child, it is in seeing your faults honestly you will improve. Live to spread light to this world. Do not stretch or alter the truth in any way. Be absolutely pure. Your heart must be likened to Mine. You must pray for grace. Only a pure heart will do, I want you holy, holy as the saints. Model yourself after Mary your Mother and pray for grace to change more and more into My image. Pray to the Spirit to transform you in Mary's heart. The way to holiness is hard, you must totally surrender. Be more perfected as your heavenly Father is perfect.

    I am Jesus and I write this to you. Pray to the Spirit to Sanctify you. You are all sinners, pray, pray, pray to be made ever pure. Do not belabor points of reference in your heads, that is satan, immediately focus on Me. It is useless to re-enact events that happened in your mind, focus on My cross. Realize that you are not perfect, you are learning how to be better Christians. I am teaching you, the Spirit will Sanctify you, you must pray to be holy as the saints, I want you so pure. Mary's heart is so pure, I am all good, I came to show you the way to Sanctity. Admit your faults, say you are sorry and pray for grace. I love you so much.

    Love, Jesus

  

February 24, 1995 - After Communion

Go To Confession

Jesus:  Only a pure heart can unite very closely with My Heart. Rid yourself of the slightest impurities. Tell all your sins to the priest. Say you are sorry, focus on your spiritual life. You must try to be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect. If you fall, you must ask for forgiveness and forgive yourself. Do not hide any of your faults, that is what keeps you from union with Me. Admit your sins and realize how the smallest sins offend Me. Always love. Always be aware of how the tiniest offense is wrong. Strive, My daughter, My son, strive to be perfect, as the saints. Any taint of sin blocks your union with Me. Tell the priest, talk your problems over with him. I give you much grace to open yourself up. Sin offends Me greatly. You must strive for perfection. You cannot complain and hate your brothers, you must love them even if you do not like what they do. Pray for grace to be more like your Heavenly Father. Model yourself after Mary your Mother. Pray to the Spirit to sanctify you and transform you more and more into My image. I want you Holy, Holy as Saints. You will be drawn closer to My Heart in Holiness.

  

February 24, 1995

Words from Your Mouth

Jesus:  What comes from a man's mouth is what is in their heart. A heart of love speaks loving things. A heart of hatred speaks words of hate.

    Purify your heart. Be My mouth piece to spread My love throughout this world.

    I am the Good Shepherd, I know Mine and they FOLLOW ME. FOLLOW MY WAYS, My ways are kind and gentle in heart.

    How are the words that come from your lips? How are your facial expressions? Are you projecting My love into this world. A pure heart projects love to the world. Oh My dear ones, be pure, pure in your heart.

    They who slander and holler ugly words at you have hearts that are cold and dark. What comes through a man's mouth is what is inside of them.

    If they persecute you, and holler ugly remarks at you remember it is from their heart that they speak. Pray for those who are ugly in their speech. As you are in your speech and actions, you are in your hearts.

    If your brother attacks you with speech and actions. If he shakes his fists at you and blows his horn, it is his heart that is troubled. People shaking their fists can be very full of anger and hatred, they need your prayers. You are not responsible for their actions. Their anger comes from within. How are you? How are the words from your lips? How is the expression on your face? Come to the pure heart of My Mother, ask her to lead  you ever closer to My Most Sacred Heart. Pray to the Spirit to sanctify you, to make you holy to transform you more into My image which leads to greater union with the Father. Oh sweet ones, God is forever with you to sanctify you and lead you ever closer. I love you so dearly, I wait your union. I want a deeper and deeper relationship with you. You are My beloved ones. How I love you. My Heart is on fire and waiting for you.

Song:  My heart is open and on fire just for you!

    

February 24, 1995 - Friday 12:00 p.m. prayed rosary in Holy Spirit Chapel

His Blood

R.  Between 12 and 3 prayed rosary in little Chapel, at the scourging of the pillar, saw a red haze and saw HIS BLOOD so red, HIS HEART the FIRE OF HIS LOVE IS BLOOD RED.

        Picture kept getting dark — this has been happening, it was mixed with light, but was dark a lot.

 

February 24, 1995

Sorrowful Mysteries

The Agony in the Garden

1.  R.  Jesus asks us to meditate on these Sorrowful Mysteries in order to help us to understand the immensity of His great love He has for each one of us.

2.  R.  Jesus was alone in the Garden. He saw before Him all the sufferings He was about to undergo. Put yourself in the Garden with Jesus, in the darkened night. Hear the sounds of the night. Look at Jesus as He kneels and as He suffers the great anguish to His Most Precious Heart.

3.  R.  Jesus saw before Him the bloody massacre He was about to undergo

4.  R.  Jesus called out to His Father that if it would be possible to remove this cup, but not My Will but Thine be done. Jesus always complied to the Will of the Father. He showed us all through His life how He obeyed the Father's Will, how Mary, His Mother, obeyed the Father's Will. It is in living in the Father's Will that we will be the happiest. The Father has a  plan for each one of us and it is in accordance to His Will that we will live as He planned when He created us.

5.  R.  Out of greatest love for us, God gave us a free will. It is up to us to follow the way of Jesus or to go our own way.

6.  R.  The Father sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we would be saved. Jesus, in compliance to the Father's Will for greatest love of us, now knelt in the Garden and sees before Him all the souls from all time that would neglect Him and treat Him so indifferently.

7.  R.  The great gift to us is the gift that Jesus remains with us this day in His Divinity and humanity. He remains with us on this earth no less present than the day He knelt in the Garden, in the Eucharist. His Heart is burning and on fire and waiting for us to come and be with Him.

8.  R.  Jesus saw before Him the endless hours that He would remain in the Tabernacle waiting for the precious souls that He loves. And how few would come! He says loudly and clearly: Can you not watch one hour with Me?

9.  R.  Jesus gives us twenty-four hours a day. The first commandment says: I am the Lord Thy God. Thou shall not have any gods before Me.

10.  R.  Jesus waits for us to come and to be with Him. He waits for us to come and to receive Him in the Eucharist. He gives us Himself. He calls out to us: You do not know how dearly I love you, My precious souls. I call out to you to draw yourselves in closer union with Me. I am a burning furnace, on fire for love of you, My beloved souls!

Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar

1.  R.  (Jesus has a red haze over His picture.) He says that His blood is red and so is His Heart. His Heart is on fire with love of each one of us.

2.  R.  We do not know how favored we truly are, how we are being chosen. We are being called to the Holy Spirit Center to learn more about Jesus' most vibrant love He has for us so that we will go into this world that is hurting and in pain to spread this love to our brothers. We are the chosen ones. Jesus and Mary have called us here this night to be a part of the Father's plan to spread the love of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary throughout this world.

3. R.  And His blood was bright red! They beat Him! They hit Him! They scourged Him! He truly went through this persecution for greatest love of us. He shed His blood so that we can be with God someday forever in Heaven.

4.  R.  We are reborn into new life in the Sacrament of Baptism. We are so favored that we are given a sharing in His life. He gives us His divine love. The soul craves this love and nothing on this earth will satisfy this craving; this yearning of the soul for Divine love. The Father created us this way. The Father loves us so much and He wants to outpour His love to us.

5.  R.  Jesus stood at the pillar and they mercilessly scourged Him. They tore His flesh and He stood in a puddle of His own blood, the blood that He shed because He loves us so much.

6.  R.  Jesus calls out to you this day to purify your heart. He wants to be ever closer to you. But Love unites with Love. If our  hearts are full of  debris, of hatred or anger, of not liking our brothers, we can not unite closely with Jesus. A heart that is filled with love will unite so closely with the most tender Heart of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

7.  R.  They whipped Jesus! They scourged Him! Jesus was silent! Jesus loved those who persecuted Him. He comes to show us the way. His way is love.

Jesus:  Love! Love! Love, My children! I send you into the world as My soldiers to spread My love to a world that is in pain. I will touch this world through you, through your heart. If you open up your heart, if  you pray to the Spirit, I will send you into the world and I will minister to My beloved ones through you.

8. R.  Purity of heart! He calls us to have a pure heart. The more we model ourselves after the Virgin Mary, the more we pray to the Spirit to transform us into the image of Jesus, the more our hearts will become pure, the more we will love our brothers. Love unites with Love. He is Love. To love God, we must love!

9.  R.  Hear Him scourged at the pillar! Hear the blows that they gave to Jesus! These are the blows that Jesus received for greatest love of us. He received these blows because He loved our brothers. Each and every soul was created by God, our Father, out of His great love. Each and every soul Jesus loved to the extent that He allowed Himself to be scourged at the pillar.

10.  R.  We are called to this Center to go into this world and to be soldiers of love. It takes God to help us to be more like Jesus. It takes prayers to the Spirit to ask Him to sanctify us, to be holy that we can be transformed into the image of Jesus. It takes God to help us to be holy. We must pray to the Spirit. The more we are transformed into the image of Jesus, the more we are led to the love of the Father.

Jesus is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

1.  R.  Father forgive them for they know not what they do! We are blind! We do not see how we are unloving to one another. Pray to the Spirit more and more to be led closer into the image of Jesus.

2.  R.  Jesus sat and they pounded into His Head a sharp crown of piercing thorns. The bright red blood ran from His thorns down His face and into His ears and eyes. His vision was clouded. How our vision is clouded. So many times we want such clarity with what we see. Look beyond the consecrated host. We do not see the Divine Lord that is truly present in this host. Spirit lead us. Dear Spirit, open up our eyes to where we are blind that we may see the great gifts that we have been given: Divine Love.

3.  R.  His body was an open wound from the scourging and they put on His open wounds a dirty purple robe. He sat on a so called throne! They gave Him a scepter to hold and then they mocked Him as King of the Jews! They spit on Him! They called Him names! Jesus Christ, the Son of God, sat and took all that they gave Him!

4.  Song:  Crown Him with Many Crowns

5.  R.  Jesus is the King of Kings! He is persecuted! He is beaten! He is bloodied! He sits in silence and loves those who persecute Him!

6.  R.  Jesus suffered such abuse, such beatings. He came to show us the way. His way is love, always love. All that they did to Him and His response was always love. Dear Jesus, help us to be more like You, to be Your bearers of love in this world. Holy Spirit, transform us and sanctify us into the image of Jesus Christ, the Son of God!

7.  R.  We are weak! We do not even see how we offend God and how we hurt one another. Dear Spirit, open our eyes so that we may see and that we may be transformed into the image of Jesus.

8.  R.  They beat Jesus on His head and blood ran from His mouth from the blows they gave to His head. What comes out of our mouth is what is in our hearts. If our hearts are hard and angry, what comes out of our mouth are hard and angry words. His way was always love. Our face shows what is in our hearts!

9.  R.  Mary's face is so beautiful because her Heart is pure and filled with love.

10. Song:  Only this I want.

Jesus Carries His Cross Up Calvary

1.  R.  They poked at Jesus! They treated Him so cruelly! He stood with His hands tied in front of Him! They were angry, their hearts full of hatred. Jesus stood with a look of perfect peace on His face and they condemned Him to death!

2.  R.  They gave to Jesus a heavy cross and they put it on His shoulder. The pains that Jesus suffered to His shoulder to carry the cross. He could scarcely move the cross was so heavy. They poked at Him and they pushed on Him! His shoulder hurt so badly that it felt as if it would break!

3.  R.  Jesus did not give up His cross. He fell under His cross because it was so heavy.

4.  R.  It is through His death that we rise in Him. It is through the suffering and the little crosses that He gives to us each day that we, too, receive new life — life in Him!

5.  R.  Jesus watches us as we struggle and as we suffer. Everything that happens, He allows. In the suffering, He wants to lead us to new life. He watches us as we struggle and He does not take us out of our suffering. Many times He allows us to suffer. But He is so close because He knows that it is this very suffering that will lead us closer to Him.

6.  R.  Mary walked forever by His side. She was so weakened. Her Heart was torn in her chest to watch the sufferings that Jesus underwent.

7.  R.  Mary walks by our side in all of our struggles. She is forever there! Our Mother, truly by our side! As she walked by Jesus in all of His sufferings, she does not leave our side. She is there! She loves us as she loved Jesus. She cares for us with the most maternal Heart.

8.  R.  Their eyes peered into one another's on Calvary. The great love that Mary had for Jesus. She saw Him streaming with blood and with the cross on His back. As Her eyes peered into His and His eyes peered into His loving Mother's, He saw her face, reddened and covered with tears in such suffering. In the meeting of these two eyes is the meaning of the intimacy of these two Hearts. So joined are the Hearts of Jesus and Mary! Jesus wants us to come through Mary's most pure and tender Heart to be led ever closer to Him. He loves His Mother. It is through Her Heart that we are led to the deepest intimacies of Jesus' burning Heart.

9.  R.  Jesus was persecuted! He was whipped! Now He carried the heavy cross on His back. Think of the shoulder of Jesus and how it ached to carry this cross. Think of the wounds that He had on His whole body and how they hurt. Think of how His head pounded from the crown of thorns. But His greatest agonies were not the agonies that He experienced to His physical body, but the agonies that He experienced to His Most Sacred Heart for He loves each soul with such deep love. How many souls treat Him coldly and neglect Him? He waits and waits for the souls that He loves to come and be with Him, to spend time with Him in front of the tabernacle, time alone with Him wherever they are. Each day He wants time alone with each soul that He loves!

10.  Jesus:  Do you not have one hour to spend with Me? I call you as soldiers to go out to this world and to spread the love of My Most Sacred Heart in the highways and the byways, to listen to My pleading. I call you to go out. But it is not through your own might that you will spread this love to the world, it is through the might of the Almighty God. You must come and become ever closer to My Sacred Heart. You must pray for union with Me. It is only in this union that you will be able to do the job that the Father has called you to do. It is the might of the Almighty God that will be with you in the world, that will transform you from fear to fearlessness to do the task that I call you to this evening to spread My love to the world that is in so much pain.

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1.  R.  See Mary as she cares for the hands and feet of the child Jesus and see her now as she sees these most precious hands and feet of her Son nailed all the way through to the cross!

2.  R.  How do you think these hands and feet bled when they were nailed clear through with big nails?

3.  Jesus:  It is in meditating on My Passion that you will know My immense love for you.

4.  R.  Mary stood under the cross against the darkened sky and watched her beloved Son as He hung for three agonizing hours. Three hours! He was thirty-three years old! Jesus hung to His death for three hours!

5.  R.  Jesus is the New Adam. Mary is the New Eve. They have come so that we may have life and have it to the full!

6.  R.  There appeared in the sky a woman clothed as the sun and the moon was under her feet and there were twelve stars about her head.

7.  R.  Mary stood under the cross, held up by her beloved John. She watched her Son as He hung to His death!

8.  R.  Jesus gave His flesh and His blood because He loves us so much. He gives Himself to us this day in the Eucharist. He gives Himself to us in such union! When we receive the consecrated host we are truly receiving the same Jesus Christ that hung on the cross, the same Jesus that walked on Calvary, the same Jesus that was born of Mary. When you look at the consecrated host, you are looking at God! Do we cry to realize that the priest has the power to change the bread and wine into the body and blood of Jesus Christ? When you look at the consecrated host, think of Jesus hanging on the cross. He is no less present in the consecrated host than He was the day He hung on the cross. He is there in His Divinity and humanity and He gives Himself to us in communion. Gives Himself! Greater than any union that we can have with any other human person, God gives Himself to us!

9.  R.  Dear Holy Spirit, give us Your gifts: Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding, that we may see more clearly those things of God. So that we can realize the great gifts given to us in Baptism, so that we can live deeper in You, filled with Your grace.

10.  R.  Create in us a thirst, a love, a great desire for the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Christ! Create in us this desire that we can not wait to receive Him in communion and to come and be with Him in front of the Tabernacle. It is there that He outpours His abundant grace for He is truly present in His Divinity and humanity. Grace is outpoured in the Eucharist. His grace is a sharing in His life. Give us Your grace.

Song after last decade:  A Song From Jesus

 

This rosary was prayed before the statue of Our Mother of Sorrows just prior to the Friday evening prayer service at the Holy Spirit Center. Rita, Cathy, Joe and Marty were present along with dozens of other apostles. Rita stated that Mary appeared in brilliant light. Rita saw a red haze around the picture of Jesus.

 

 

February 25, 1995  5:00 a.m.

A Court of Angels and Saints

Jesus:  My heart is on fire and waiting just for you. How these morning hours please Me. Rita you must surrender and do all I ask you.

    My plan will unfold, I love you so much. Just do as you are told.

    Surrender, Surrender, Surrender to the God who loves you so much.

    It is in this surrender you will watch miracles happen. Do not worry for details or events, keep your eyes forever on the crucifix. A crown of thorns I impart to you, a garden of roses is your bed. The thorns are prickly and pick your skin, the roses are soft and cushion your place. You will have roses and thorns. Every day keep your heart set on My crucifix, keep your soul set on the new life. I give you new life. Through the crucifix you will be brought to intense, burning union with Me. I love you, it is through My love for you I allow you to suffer so much. Do not give into yourself. It is in suffering you are made holy. My Holy child, My Saint Rita, I bring her to you as your constant companion. She will intercede for you in the courts of heaven. Ever will you make her your trusted friend.

    Oh My loved one, so many dear friends you have in heaven, pulling for your cause to spread devotion to the two Hearts. You are not alone. My child Claude is forever with you and Margaret Mary, Padre Pio, Theresa, St. Dominic and so many others. What you see is what you get. A court of angels and saints to plead your cause, to help you spread this devotion to My Sacred Heart. Pray to St. Rita, she will accompany you on your way. You saw the parade of saints in the grotto. They are parading around the Center in the empty halls, you will have many miracles there through Me. Margaret Mary you saw on the altar. The Center is so blessed, this is My Mother's House. Many miracles will happen there. I have turned it into a monument of healing, It is a place for healing. The Spirit will come especially upon all who go there and make them whole. I am Jesus and I have spoken to you My beloved servants, chosen by My own hands to accomplish great things through Me. Healing will abound and you will be made pure hearts to know the might of the Almighty God. I am Jesus on fire for love of you, My beloved ones at the Center.

 

February 25, 1995

Mary's House

R.  This is Mary's House, I was told by Jesus to come to the Center in June, 1994 and begin praying the rosary, with my children in front of Mary and miracles would happen.

    I came July 4 and prayed in the front of the chapel with the children. On July 5 we prayed in front of the sorrowful mother in the rear of the Church because someone was in the front of the Church.

    I think Fr. Carter showed up on the 9th, I think it was a Saturday.

    This is the rosary chapel, named because of Mary's rosary.

    When the children and I first came to the center, we were drawn to the sorrowful mother Statue in the hall. We took pictures of it and would drive up to see it through the window. I was so moved by it and overcome with sorrow when we first saw it and the children and I smelled roses.

Unity

Song:  One Bread, One Body

R.  We unite so when we receive the body of Christ together. The more we grow in union with Christ, the more we become one in Him. If each person is in union with Him and He is one in us, we are so united with each other because we are one in Him.

    Do we want unity in the Church, Unity in the Center, Unity is found being strongly united in the body of Christ. Great union with Him is found after we receive communion. If the people in the Church receive communion frequently, we become forever united so closely in the Eucharist. It is through His body and blood we unite with Him so closely. When groups are joined in adoration, prayer groups before the tabernacle they are joined so closely to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.

    Unity will be achieved when we realize that to unite the closest we must ever grow in our union with Him. To be one in Him is to be one with each other. How can I be one in Him and not one with you, if He is one in me and you are one in Him, we are one with each other in His body.

    Who are we that He gives us such abundant graces through the Eucharist? Who are we that He remains with us in His Divinity and humanity? He wants us to be one in the body of Christ.

    For our Church to unite, for this Center to unite we must pray for union with Him. We must realize more the immense power of Masses, Masses at the Center where all go to Communion, we all become so close to Him in Communion, we are so close to each other in communion because we are one in Him.

Sing:  One Bread, One Body

R.    All praying together before the tabernacle, praying before the exposed Eucharist, we recognize, the Son of God truly present and we adore Him.

    We are one body in Christ, we are one in Him, we are one with each other when all are so closely united to the Eucharist.

    THIS IS HIS BODY. Present in His Divinity and humanity. This is God!!

    We must unite in Masses, praying before the Eucharist, in Adoration — this is His body.

    It is those actions, sometimes in silence that show the greatest love, not loud and boastful, sweet and loving.

   

February 26, 1995

Jesus Has Been Talking to Me

R.  Jesus has been talking to me all day.

    Minute by minute He loves us. Think of Him saying every second, I love you. If we are hearing Him saying every second how He loves us, we cannot be angry. He keeps saying, I love you, if we are filled with His love, we cannot be anything but loving to our brother.

    Jesus makes up for the thorns, His love, always with us makes us so happy.

 

February 26, 1995

Here Me Say Minute by Minute

Jesus:  Hear Me say minute by minute, second by second how I love you.

R.  If we hear Him say to us how He loves us how can we be angry.

Jesus:  When you are filled with My love, when you know My love, you will love your brothers.

    To know Me is to love others.

    Oh My sweet ones, knowing My intense love is the key to peace and joy.

R.  Jesus makes up for the thorns, His love makes us happy.

Sing:  I love you this day.

R.  People are creatures. They do unloving things. Look into everyone's eyes.

The eyes are the windows of the souls.

Glorious Mysteries

The Resurrection

1.  R.  Jesus was locked in the tomb for three days and on the third day, He rose from the dead. Death has no power over Jesus!

2.  R.  Jesus rose to bring us new life. We are partakers in His Divine life. If we have been baptized and remain in the state of grace, He remains within us with this vibrant life. Jesus says: I am alive! I am alive! I am alive!

3. R.  Think of every moment of every day, how you go through your day. Silently, Jesus is with us.

Jesus:  I love you, I love you, I love you, My dear one! All through your day stop for the little moments when you are plagued with doubt, stop and hear My gentle, loving voice say oh so softly: Oh, how I love you!

4.  R.  Who are we that God the Father sent His only begotten Son into this world? Who are we that we can be partakers in His life?

5.  R.  From the pierced Heart of Jesus on the cross flowed blood and water. The sacramental life of the Church was born. Water for baptism. Blood for the Eucharist.

6.  Song:  A Song From Jesus

7.  R.  The Father created each one of us uniquely special. There is not another person like us. He has a plan for each one of us. He wants us to live according to this plan. It is in living according to this plan, we will be the happiest. God allows us to share in His life through baptism. Our human nature is elevated.

8.  R.  Jesus is the mediator. Jesus became a small baby, born of the Virgin Mary. God, became a little baby out of greatest love for us!

9.  R.  Jesus gave to the apostles the power to baptize and to forgive sins.

10.  Song:  New Life

R.  In baptism we are made children of God and heirs of Heaven.

Song between decades:  Come Holy Spirit

 

The Ascension

1.  R.  These are truly the Glorious Mysteries! Jesus' lifeless body was locked in the tomb and He rose from the dead. Jesus ascended into Heaven. Think of this!

2.  Then he took them out as far as the outskirts of Bethany, and raising his hands he blessed them.  Luke 24:50

Peace I bequeath to you, my own peace I give you, a peace which the world cannot give, this is my gift to you.   John 14: 27

3.  R.  Jesus ascends into Heaven and a cloud took Him out of sight.

4.  R.  The apostles walked with Jesus! They lived with Jesus! How well they knew Jesus, yet they were overcome with fear!

5. R.  Jesus promised them before He left:

"John baptised with water but, not many days from now, you are going to be baptised with the Holy Spirit.’" Acts 1: 5

6. R.  Jesus is with us this day. He remains with us in His Divinity and humanity in the Eucharist. Jesus feeds the life that we received through Baptism with His very own Body and Blood.

7.  R.  Jesus feeds us with His Word!

8.  R.  When we are baptized and remain in the state of grace, the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, dwell within our hearts in such a special way. Do we realize God is in us when we are baptized and remain in the state of grace? We are never alone! Within this interior life that we have is the small, quiet voice of Jesus telling us all throughout the day, minute by minute, second by second, that His Heart beats on fire for each one of us. He whispers in our heart, if we quiet ourselves to listen, He whispers ever so gently: "My beloved ones, Oh how I love you"!

9.  R.  Never are we alone! Jesus is such an ardent lover. He remains with us. As we breathe, as our heart beats, He is attentive to us!

10.  R.  Jesus wants to be one with us. Jesus wants us to forever be about our union with Him, to be so close to Him, to be conscious as we breathe of His presence at every moment. For He is truly there and He is softly saying: "I love you, My beloved one."

Song between decades:  Come Holy Spirit

 

The Descent of the Holy Spirit

1.  R.  The apostles were filled with fear and had locked themselves in the upper room with the Blessed Virgin Mary. There came a gigantic-like wind and over their heads appeared parted tongues of fire.

2.  R.  And they were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in foreign tongues as the Spirit prompted them.

3.  R.  They were transformed from fear to fearlessness. They went out to the world to preach the Gospel and all understood.

4.  R.  They were no longer afraid! Holy Spirit, transform us from fear to fearlessness so that we have the courage to go out into this world and spread the Gospel, to spread the Good News of the love of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

5.  R.  Jesus calls us to holiness. The Holy Spirit sanctifies our souls. Dear Holy Spirit, please come to us. Transform us more and more into the image of Jesus. We are weak. We need You to help us to be more and more like Jesus.

6.  R.  What comes from the heart of men is what is projected into this world. If our hearts are filled with the love of God, what comes from our mouth, what is seen from our face, is love. Mary's face is so beautiful because Her Heart is pure and full of love. Look into one another's eyes. The eyes are the windows of the soul. The love of a heart fixed on Jesus shines into this world.

7.  R.  A heart that is full of hatred and anger, projects angry words on this world, angry and hard faces. Dear Holy Spirit, work ever more in our hearts because it is only through You that we can become like Jesus. We need You to help sanctify us and make us holy. We can not do this on our own.

8.  R.  Where we are blind, help us to see our faults and admit our faults but to continue to spread the light and love of God into this world, to not hide little faults which keep us from our union with God.

9.  R.  You call us to holiness. You call us to a pure heart. It is only through Your grace we can be transformed. We ask You to shower us with Your abundant grace.

10.  R.  Oh Divine God! Give us Your life! Abundant Life!

Song:  I Love You Jesus

R.  Help us to be saturated more and more with Your grace.

Galatians 2: 19-20

I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me. The life that I am now living, subject to the limitation of human nature, I am living in faith, faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me.

Song between decades:  Come Holy Spirit

 

The Assumption of Mary Into Heaven

1.  R.  Mary remained on the earth many years after Jesus' death. Now she is taken up into Heaven, body and soul!

2.  R.  Think of the time when you were closely united with Jesus. Think of when you felt the closest after you received Him in the Eucharist. Mary is so one with Jesus. Mary is sinless, pure. Someday we will be in Heaven forever and ever and ever if we love and serve God. The union that we have with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit will be so intense, much more than the union that we have experienced here on earth.

3.  R.  Jesus gave to us His very own Mother to be our Spiritual Mother, to lead us as we go through our journey from birth to death, to lead us and guide us on our way from babies in the spiritual life to a more advanced spiritual life. Mary is truly our Mother and she is here with us this day to guide us, to form us, to help us to be more and more like the image of Jesus, her beloved Son.

4.  R.  How man is in his heart is  how he projects to this world. How are we in our heart? If there is any anger or hatred with our brother, we can not unite at a deep level with Jesus, Who is Love. Jesus wants to outpour to us His grace. He wants intense union, but we must pray to the Holy Spirit to sanctify us, to help us rid ourselves of the debris in our hearts that take us away from being like Jesus.

5.  Song:  A Song From Jesus

R.  How His Heart burns, burns for love of us. "Burns" is such a flimsy word to describe the unbounded, unending love that God has for us!

6.  R.  As Mary took care of Jesus all through His life and walked with Him on Calvary, she walks with us through all of our sufferings and trials. Our Beloved Mother is at our side to help us grow more like her Son, Jesus.

7.  R.  Jesus is alive. The Church is His bride. Mary is the Mother of the Church.

8.  R.  Jesus and Mary are so present to us here in this, her House. We are chosen! We are called here! We are His apostles to spread the love of His Sacred Heart to this world. We are truly chosen! We are favored to be here for They are with us. We know how every time we come here we experience this immense presence. Mary went up into Heaven but she is present with us this day!

9.  R.  Heaven is our true home.

10.  R.  Jesus, help us to love Your Beloved Mother more and more, to model ourselves after her, she, who has such a pure and tender Heart, to be closely united to her, to feel her presence, to feel her maternal touch, to feel her as she holds us and presses us so tenderly to her Heart. Our Beloved Mother holds each one of us as a little child close to her breast!

The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth

1.  Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.   Revelation 12: 1

2.

And Mary said:
My soul proclaims
the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
in God my Saviour;   Luke 1: 46-47

3.  R.   Mary, our Mother, is Queen of Heaven and Earth. She is so close and loving us. We should feel comforted by this most strong, maternal love that she has for each one of us.

4.  Mary:  My dear chosen ones, how I hold you so closely to my breast. How I protect you from this world that is hurting. How I am forever with you and never leave your side. Come to me! Speak to me! I am your Beloved Mother! I love you with such a tender Heart! I will never leave you! I will always be with you, watching out for you and protecting you and leading you ever closer to the Most Sacred Heart of my Beloved Son.

5. R.  Who are we that we are so favored to be so close to Jesus and Mary, to know the presence of the Father and the Holy Spirit, to go to Mass every day and partake in the event of the Mass, to receive God within our breast! He gives Himself to us! We are truly chosen and given such great gifts in this Center! We are chosen and called to go out into this world and to spread the love of God in our hearts to the world that is hurting. We are being called by Jesus and Mary every day. They want us to go out and to do this, to pray for the fearlessness that only the Spirit can impart to us, to do what the Father's will is for us. For He has a special plan for us. He has given us such great gifts. We are part of this gigantic plan to spread the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary to this world.

6.  Mary:  And the world will hate you, My children. The world is cold and in darkness. They have lost their focus of God. Many have become godless. I call out to you, my beloved children, to come ever closer to me and let me lead you to close union with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus, my Beloved Son, is ever with you, outpouring His love to you. If you realize the love of Jesus, you can not help but love others.  You must focus more and more on the intensity of the love that He has for you for it is in realizing this intense love that you will spread this love to others.

7.  Mary:  Little children! Little children! You do not think that I speak to you! But I call you every day. You do not quiet your hearts and listen to my plaintive cry. Take my words seriously. I am sending you into this world to spread the love of my Son into this world. I beg  you! I beg you to pray, pray for fearlessness so that you will not be caught up in the pressures of this world that try to keep you from the work that I am asking you to accomplish.

8.  Song:  Hail Holy Queen

9.  Song:  Eye Has Not Seen

10.  R.  Mary, lead us closer and closer to your Heart for it is through your Heart that we will be ever closer to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. It is through your Heart that the Holy Spirit can transform us more and more into this image of Jesus. It is through this transformation that we will be led closer to the Father. We ask you, Mary, to draw our hearts closer to your Heart, for you are the key to help us have a deeper, deeper union with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This is our plaintive cry to you, Mary, to lead us ever closer to you so we may be led ever closer to the one Triune God.

 

This rosary was prayed before the statue of Our Mother of Sorrows at the Holy Spirit Center following the Healing Service. Besides, Rita, Cathy, Joe and Marty, many people were in attendance.

   

February 27, 1995 - Awaken from sleep to take message

Obedience and God's Will

Jesus:  Doing a good thing is not necessarily My Father's will. I demand obedience, it may seem incidental, but if you know it is My will you should do My will. You are not happy if  you are not following God's will. To My death on the cross I did always the Father's will, I call you today to obedience. We are asking you to pray the rosary at the Center.

    I am with you in all you do. I am so close to you. I am Jesus, the Son of God. Ask Me your questions, I will answer you and tell you all you need.

R.  And He answered their needs and they knew God's power.

    All that matters is I do His will. If I do anything that deviates from this, I do not feel good.

Jesus:  I want you to pray the rosary at the Center at 6:30.

    Doing My Father's will is the most important in suffering.

    You must do My Father's will, your children need to go to Mass, you need to pray the rosary at the Center 6:30, you need to pray the rosary there with your children and you need to pray the rosary every day. Read My messages of love with your children. Your child has not read a Blue Book message for a long time. He needs to read these messages. Your children come first.

 

February 28, 1995

You Will March with Peace and Joy

Jesus:  My God My God Oh why have you forsaken Me.

    My child, you must be strong. Satan will forever tell  you you are weary and tired. I call you to obedience. What are you doing with your life? Are you living it for Me? If you are focused on your treasures here below you are missing the greatest gifts on this earth. I am here truly present in the Eucharist with My great love waiting for you, longing for you ready to hold you up at any moment.

    Let go, feel a release of that which is making you tired. I want to live in you — dwell deeply in your heart. I give a special sharing in My life through baptism. I am your God, I do not want false gods before Me. I call you to obedience, I call you to surrender, I call you to love LOVE of God, LOVE of one another, if you do not love each other you will not have peace.

    You are my chosen ones. I send you into this world girded for battle — send you as warriors into wolves.

    They will bite at your heels and prick your skin and you, through My might will march with peace and joy. I am your God, forever with you, oh children, you do not know how much I love you. As you breathe, as your heart beats, I am forever with you calling out, I love you, I love you, I love you.

Knowing God Helps You to Heal

R.  Unity is found in being together in the Mass.
      Unity is found in praying before the Blessed Sacrament
      Unity is found in praying.

      Unity is found in eating together, Jesus always ate with the Apostles.

      Socializing — gatherings — marriages — big events

      The Trinity is one.

     

Matthew 11: 25

At that time Jesus exclaimed, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children.

Jesus:  Many persons in alcoholic homes have had problems because they have been forced to live in isolation to hide this disease.

    It can hurt your socialization process with others when you do not communicate well. When you cannot relate very well with others. Growing in your love union with Me will help you heal. I am the teacher — I teach you to communicate. Perfect communication is found in the Trinity.

R.  Unity is found in being together at Mass. Unity is found in praying before the Blessed Sacrament. Unity in praying together. Mary said the family that prays together stays together.

There can be intense unity when praying before the Blessed Sacrament. The Trinity is one. There are 3 Persons in one God. In the Church we are the body of Christ. We are many members of one body. Christ is the head we are the members. We are one in Him. The Trinity is one. The Trinity is love. To unite we must love. You cannot experience love (true love) and hate at the same time. We love even though there are differences.

  

Matthew 11: 25

At that time Jesus exclaimed, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children.

    Jesus ate many times, He is seen as feeding and at gatherings. When we gather together and eat, we unite with one another. Eating together creates unity. Satan tries to destroy the family meal. He does this to keep people away from intimate contact. Praying together, eating together, communicating with one another helps to unite family, friends and communities.

    In our every breath realize that God is with us. Living in the Father's will is living always as a little child striving to please our Father. We want to live as He wills us to, He knows best.

    Jesus is forever with us saying in a small soft voice, Oh How I love you. He never leaves us for one moment. He is hyper-vigilant and ever attentive to our every need.

    If we are baptized and in the state of grace the Trinity dwells in us in such a special way. We become one, more and more, the more we unite to the Trinity. Who are we that God is so good to us, that He lives in us that He is here every second we breathe. We are never alone. In this interior life we know the presence of the one true God. God dwells in us and we become more one with Him and everyone in love.

    God fills us. He lives and dwells within us because of baptism when we remain in the state of grace.

    The more we become one in Him through baptism and the sacraments, the more we love one another. God lives in the graced soul in a very special way. How can I be one in Him and not be united loving my brother? The Church is the body of Christ. The Church is to be united deeply.

Song:  One Bread, One Body

    Jesus is shown at gatherings, eating, unity, unity with Jesus. At Mass we are so united — God gives us Himself in communion. We are one body in the Church.

    The Mass unites us so strongly. The Church is one, as we attend the Mass, we are united with the Church in such a deep way. As we receive the consecrated host, we become more one in Him.

    Jesus told me to go to Mass with my children everyday — what unity. He told us to pray and play together. Intimacy, with the members of the family — we unite in Him. Very great union is felt in adoration of a family before the tabernacle or exposed Eucharist. Sit next to one another in Church and pray together to achieve this unity.

    Stop and pray the Angelus, the Divine Mercy a few moments in prayer to unite in Him.

    Song:  Now We Remain

ONENESS

Jesus:  Hear the sweet soft voice within say, "I love  you", "I love you", "I love you".

R.  We are dependent on God for our every breath. He can at any moment give us a disease and we can be stopped. We can have an accident and be stopped.

    He is in control. The first commandment commands

        I, the Lord, am your God. You shall not have other gods besides me.

    He commands us to two things, love of God and love of neighbor.

    We are to be one in Him. He wants us to unite and to love one another. The most perfect unity is seen in the Trinity. The Persons of the Trinity communicate with the other Persons in the Trinity in greatest love.

 

Excerpt from Response to God's Love, by Father Edward Carter, S.J.

...In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

    The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ. St. Paul tells us: "I became a minister of this Church through the commission God gave me to preach among you his word in its fullness, that mystery hidden from ages and generations past but now revealed to his holy ones. God has willed to make known to them the glory beyond price which this mystery brings to the Gentiles—the mystery of Christ in you, your hope of glory. This is the Christ we proclaim while we admonish all men and teach them in the full measure of wisdom, hoping to make every man complete in Christ" (Col 1:25-28).

Use Your Talents

October 3, 1993 Chicago Marian Conference 11:30a.m.

Jesus speaks: I am your Savior, Son of the Living God. I come to you that you might have life, not as the world gives you life, but My life which is life eternal. I carved you from My special carving and made you little less than an angel. I love you and cherish all the moments when you, My special child, come to sit with Me. I wait here and I hope you will choose to come, but I never force you. Your will is totally free and I give it to you because of My love and the will of the Father. I inform you in numerous ways. You do not have to guess and wonder. Come be with Me in this silence and all you need to know will be told to you. Your life is unfolding as a beautiful rose. Each petal falls and you plant My odors about as I so desire. I make your life full and sure as you trust in Me. No need for worrying, My little flower. My ways give you freedom if you listen to your heart. I am a personal God and you know Me as giving you fullness and life. You know there is some magnetism to Me and the way you crave to be part of Me. This is the work of the one, true God Who created you with a thirst that can only be quenched by Me. All roads that lead to Me give you fullness, worth, peace and joy, not as the world thinks, but as you yourself know true peace and joy. When I really touch you, you do not remain the same. I shed My Blood for you that you will have the life only I can give. What friend in this world would die for you? You, My child, were worth My dying for. I came that you will have life eternal and the gift I give is My Precious Blood for your sins. Come to Me in trouble and when you are bowed down. Come to Me in joy. Come to Me every day that you live and I will give you all you need. Seek to know Me more and more. Knowledge of Me, being with Me, are the only way to perfect peace. They lead to eternal life.

I have a divine plan for you. I created you with special gifts and talents to be used to do My work. They are not for your own self-promotion. You, My child, are nothing except as I created you. Why try to promote yourself? It is none of your own doing. I gave you the talents you are using. You had nothing to do with it. These talents were given to you to do My work. To use these talents to make yourself feel better than your brother is indeed a sin. You must realize they are loaned to you to work for Me. As you give someone a car, or loan them a place to stay, I loan you your talents to use to work for Me. If you do not work for Me and use them to make yourself better than your brother, you are offending Me. Likewise, if I give you talents and you do not use them because you think you are not as good as your brother, you are not being thankful to Me for My gifts to you. You are not using My gifts and that offends Me greatly. Each person was created by Me to do My work. Each person has all he needs to do My work. To be envious of others is fruitless. They have their job. You have yours. You are not supposed to do their work. That is why you were not given their talents.

Do your own work. Don't be envious of your brothers. Don't hide your talents. You did not earn them. I gave you your talents. You must sing because I will it. Others must do as I will them to do. It displeases Me to give you a gift and watch you hide it and make light of it. I give the gift. You must use all your gifts. They were given to you to do My work. Your brother has his gifts. Be grateful for your brother and he should be for you. You are all chosen by Me for a special mission. You know what to do. It feels right. I plant little seeds in your heart and all you do that is for you in the end feels right. You are not to be doing your brother's work or he yours. Talk to Me that you might know just what your work is and do it.

Do not hide your talents. Praise your God Who gave you these talents. Embrace and use them. This is not pride. This is My plan. I love you. I give to each of you, My precious children, as a mother who buys special Christmas gifts for each child. To buy gifts all the same for all your children is not to respect their specialness, their individuality.

Oh, I love you, little ones, so much. Please come to Me. I am so good and I wait to be with you and share My love with you. Come now. This is your top priority. All else will work when you come to Me first. I love you. You are My chosen children. Come and be filled and I make your loads light and I fill you with the Spirit of Salvation.

All roads that lead to Me are the right roads. Praise Me for I am good and I love you, little dear ones.

Give Love to Others

Jesus:  I am calling you to go out into this world and spread My love to the souls that are hurting.

    You are in the world. I want to live and operate in you. The greatest gift you can give to this world is to develop your union with Me.

    The more you become one in Me, the more I will operate through you and give My love to the hurting souls.

    Let go — Let Me live in you in love. Tell people to be baptized.

    As you live and breathe, I live in you. If you are baptized and in the state of grace, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit live in you in such a special way.

    As you live and breathe, My Heart is beating with deepest love for you. Hear My soft loving voice say to you, minute by minute, second by second, I love you My beloved one. I never, ever leave. Quiet your hearts and hear Me speak to you, I love you, I love you, I love you. If you realize My immense love you will love those around you. When you are filled with My love, you give love to others. "I love you." "I love you." "I love you."

Little Child

Jesus:  Come to Me, I am in you, release your anxieties for I am with you. Let go and experience My presence within you, My child, you worry what people think when I am talking to you. I beg you to listen to My little voice within. I live in you in such union release yourself and open wide to Me. I come to you with this immense love.

    My child, My child, I beg you.

Shepherds of Christ Meeting

Before tabernacle. Jesus and Mary appeared. 

I Love You!  I Love You!  I Love You!

This rosary was prayed before the statue of Our Mother of Sorrows at the front of the Holy Rosary Chapel at the Holy Spirit Center as part of the Shepherds of Christ Meeting. Mary appeared. Jesus appeared and He told Rita that this rosary was a gift to us from Him because He wants to be drawn closely to us through His Passion and death because as we meditate on this, we will know His immense love: He stated that this would be the best rosary yet. This rosary was prayed on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday.

 

The Sorrowful Mysteries

 

The Agony in the Garden

1.  R.  See Jesus as He kneels in the Garden.

2.  R.  Put yourself there and see Him as if you were present. See Jesus, our Lord and Savior, as He waits, His hour is about to come, to be handed over to those who will put Him to death.

3.  R.  Jesus sees before Him all the battering, the whipping, the scourging, the crowning of thorns. He sees all the glaring! He knows all He will suffer in carrying His cross, the nailing to the cross!

4.  R.  Jesus goes to the apostles, to Peter who said how faithful he would always be. They are asleep! He wants some comfort, but they were sleeping! He says to us this day: Can you not watch one hour with Me? The Son of God waits for you endlessly to come and to have time with Him. He waits for us in the Tabernacle. He waits for us all through the day to take time in our busy lives to be with Him. He says over and over again: Can you not watch one hour with Me?

5.  R.  See Jesus as He kneels there in the darkened night. His greatest agonies were not the agonies that He would suffer in wounds to His body, but the agonies that He suffered to His Heart. To love each soul so dearly and to be treated with such indifference and hatred by so many souls! He saw each and every soul from all time and how they would reject Him and not even think of Him. How they would sin. How they would be cruel and hateful to each other. He saw all the sins of the world!

6.  R.  Jesus saw the world in the state that it is in this very day: all the people who hardened their hearts, all those who turned from kindness entirely, those who think only of themselves, those who are filled with hate and anger for their brothers. He saw all the hearts of the people that live in this day that  have shunned Him, that have turned Him off, that have persecuted others, that have murdered babies! He saw all these hearts.

7.  R.  Such immense agony to His Most Sacred Heart for all the souls that would be condemned to eternal damnation despite all the suffering that He was about to undergo because of their willfulness. Out of greatest love, God gives us a free will. We have a free will to accept Him or to reject Him.

8.  R.  The Father wants us, like little children, entirely dependent upon Him; to live in His will; to  think of Him as our Most Loving Father; to have a relationship with Him as we would have with our father. He is the Most Loving Father! He created each one of us out of greatest love and He loves us so much and wants us to love Him.

9.  R.  Jesus went to the apostles and they continued to sleep. An angel of the Lord appeared to Him to comfort Him.

10.  R.  How this delights the Heart of Jesus when we take time, time away from our busy lives at home and in front of the Tabernacle. How it delights His Heart when we spend time with Him in the early morning hours. He wants to be so close to us and He waits for us to come to Him and tell Him how much we love Him. He truly loves us with a Heart that is overflowing with burning love.

Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar

1.  R.  They led Jesus away. They pulled His hair! They hit Him! They tied Him, with such anger and hatred to the pillar!

2.  R.  See Jesus, your Beloved Savior! Minute by minute, second by second, He says in your heart ever so silently: I love you, I love you, I love you! Do we realize that, that Jesus is with us in our hearts all throughout our busy days? He is calling out in a gentle voice for each one of us to hear in our hearts: I love you, I love you, I love you!

3.  R.  See Jesus at the pillar! See your Beloved! His bare back unblemished and with the blows that the men gave to Him, instantly the flesh on His back torn and bloodied, beaten raw! With their angry hearts, they pound on Jesus so hard with sharp instruments.

4.  R.  See the unblemished back of Jesus! Visualize it! Young, thirty-three years old! See it beaten raw and you will know in the vision that you see now that He was scourged because He loves each one of us so much.

5.  R.  Jesus did not call out or holler back. He suffered in compliance to the Father's Will. He was born a baby to show us that He came into this world totally helpless, dependent upon His Mother as He wants us to depend on our Father, to go to our Father, to Him and to the Holy Spirit for all our needs. For second by second, minute by minute, Jesus is inside of our hearts calling out that with that ever gentle voice: I love you, I love you, I love you!

6.  R.  Do we plug up our ears and close our eyes because we do not want to get too close to Jesus? This is Jesus! His back was unmercifully scourged, dripping with blood from the top of His head to His feet, standing in a puddle of His own blood and He calls out to you: I love you!

7.  R.  Minute by minute, second by second, He is there if we take time to listen. When others say nasty things to us and the world is pressing down on us, hear this soft voice inside of you saying ever so gently: I am here and I love you!

8.  R.  Jesus is Love! To unite closely to Him, we must rid our hearts of anything that is not love. The slightest flaws are offensive to  Him. But He forgives us. He is so full of mercy. He wants us to admit what we do, to say we are sorry, to go to the priest and to not think about our sins for it is our job to spread His light to this world. He wants us to strive for perfection, but He knows we are not perfect. He wants us to have a contrite heart. He is so gentle with us. He just wants us to say we are sorry and then move on and spread His love and His light to our brothers.

9.  R.  The Holy Spirit is the sanctifier! God wants us to be holy. As our Heavenly Father is perfect, He wants us to strive for perfection. But we of ourselves cannot make ourselves this holy. The more we pray to the Spirit, the more He sanctifies us, the easier it becomes for us to be more and more as Jesus wants us to be. The Father created us in His own image. Such dignity and honor He gives to each one of us that He created us in the image and likeness of God. The Spirit transforms us more and more into this image of Jesus. Dear Holy Spirit, please descend upon us and transform our hearts more and more into the image of Jesus so that we may be led closer to our Most Loving Father Who loves us as the most dear Father.

10. R. And He walked away. His bloody footprints covered the earth! He shed His blood for love of us. We are blind! We are deaf! We do not see and we do not hear! And that still small voice cries out from within: This is how I love you, that I truly was scourged and gave My blood for you. I want to give you My life, more and more, in such abundance! My life I give to you in the Eucharist and when you sit in front of the Tabernacle. My abundant life žs My grace I outpour to you!

Jesus is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

1.  R.  They pounded into Jesus' head a sharp crown of piercing thorns and the blood ran down His face into His eyes and into His ears.

2.  R.  It is through His Most Precious Blood that we are saved!

3.  R.  See this vision of the blood on Jesus' face in your mind. Try to visualize it as clearly as possible. The bright red blood as it flows down His face and the thorns that punctured His skull! It is in meditating and focusing on a vision that is like this, and that of His scourged back, that you will realize more and more the immensity of His great love. Jesus truly calls out to us that this is how much He loved us and He asks us this Lent to draw ever closer to His Passion, for our hearts will be joined ever closer to His in meditating on His Passion and Death!

4.  Jesus:  They beat My body and they crowned My head with thorns! They hollered insults at Me and they spit on Me! Do you know how dearly I love each one of you? I will outpour My grace to you if you ask this Lent. I ask you to meditate fervently on My Passion. Look at the crucifix! When you feel you are suffering, look at the crucifix for I truly say to you in your heart, minute by minute, second by second: I love you, I love you, I love you.

5.  Jesus:  Stop when someone is taunting you and hear My gentle voice deep in your heart for I call out to you that this is the love that I have for you this day. Will you listen to Me in your heart as I say this so gently many times throughout the day as you get caught up in your world. Others come about, they distract you, they make you feel hurtful in your hearts, and I am right there with My Heart on fire for love of you saying so gently to you how I love you. When someone hurts you, hear Me! For a heart that is filled with My love cannot be angry. It is this that will mend the fence between you and your brother when you always respond with love. But you must know My deep love for you to be able to respond this way. So I say to you this day, minute by minute, second by second, hear a soft voice in your heart say to you: I love you, I love you, I love you!

6.  Jesus:  You are My chosen ones. I have called you here to spread the love of My Sacred Heart throughout this world. This is not a small task. You cannot spread love unless you realize the immensity of the love that I have for you. Will you open up your heart? Will you take the time to listen? Will you focus on Me and this love that I have for you so that you can be the soldiers that I am sending out into this world? The soldiers that are filled with My love that will light this world in the dark corners through the love that you know deep in your heart, My love, ever beating within your breast.

7.  R.  They spit on Him. They crowned Him with thorns! They hit Him! They poked at Him! And He loved! He loved those who spit on Him!

8.  Jesus:  Let Me fill your every moment with My love. Focus on what I am telling you here this night for this is the key to send you out into the world with hearts that are abundantly filled with the love of God. But you must hear Me as I speak to you today and I say so gently all through the day: I love you, I love you, I love you!

9.  Jesus:  The more you unite with My Mother, whom I love, the more you pray to the Spirit, the more you are transformed into My image. You are My soldiers that I send to go into the world. You are to spread the love of My Most Sacred Heart and the love of My Beloved Mother's Heart. I call out to you today. Will you hear Me in your heart? This is the ammunition you need to go into this world. A heart filled with My love is fearless. I send you as fearless soldiers into a world that has forgotten God and I ask  you to hear Me as I talk to you in your heart, minute by minute, second by second. For this will be the love that you give to this hurting world.

10.  Song:  Lord, let me walk that lonesome road with You.

Jesus Carries His Cross up Calvary

1.  R.  Jesus carried His cross on His shoulder and it hurt so badly it felt as if it would break!

2.  R.  Think of an ache that could not be relieved in any way, that only got worse and worse. Now think of all the aches and pains that Jesus had all over His body, the wounds that were so deep and bleeding, and He carried the heavy cross on His back as He bled. He could not even touch the wounds. The wounds bled freely as He walked. From His Heart pounding, they bled and bled. And they poked at Him because He did not go fast enough. He collapsed under the cross. He did not give the cross up, He collapsed because it was so heavy He could scarcely move the cross. They poked at Him and they wanted Him to get up and move and move fast!

3.  R.  Jesus fell once because it was so heavy. As He went on, His condition was weakened. He bled more and the cross became heavier as He went. Can you, even a little, think about the third time He fell under the cross? Three times He fell under the cross. Three times Peter denied Him. Three times is used so much in His life. He died when He was thirty-three. There are three Persons in the Trinity. Three Persons in one God! We are loved so dearly by each Person, Father, Son and Holy Spirit!

4.  R.  Jesus was locked in the tomb for three days. He was lost in the temple for three days.

5.  R.  Jesus calls us to unity. Look at the Trinity. There are three Persons in one God. There is such love between the Persons of the Trinity.  We receive the body of Christ, we are many members, but we are one in Him.

6.  R.  Jesus loves us so much that He gave His body and His blood and He gives His body to us this day. When we receive Him in the Eucharist, I become one in Him, you become one in Him. If I am one in Him and you are one in Him, we are so closely united. We are united with Jesus.

7.  Song:  One Bread, One Body

8.  R.  Jesus took upon His back the weight of the sins of the world. He died on the cross. He gave His flesh and His blood for love of us so that we may share in His Divine Life. This is how He loves us. We are all brothers in Christ.

9.  R.  How can I say that I love if I do not love my brother? How can I love God, Whom I do not see, if I do not love my brother, whom I do see?

10.  R.  We are one body in Christ; He is the head, we are the members.

Jesus is Crucified and He Dies on the Cross

1.  R.  Jesus hung on the cross against the darkened sky. Jesus hung for three hours. Three agonizing hours! He gave His flesh and He gave His blood!

Song:  Take and Eat

2.  R.  When the priest raises the Host at the consecration of the Mass, I hear Jesus say: This is My body, given up for you. This is My blood, given up for you. When you go to Mass, hear in your heart Jesus as He says in a clear voice: This is My body. This is My blood. The priest has the power to change the bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ. If we realized even a minute amount of what is transpiring: the Father is present and the Holy Spirit is present; Jesus is saying "This is My Body"; the altar is covered with angels and saints praising God, who is truly present; we are in the presence of God and the priest has this power. We should kiss the hands of the priest that consecrates the bread into Jesus' body. Hear Jesus' voice in your heart the next time you go to Mass say: This is My body, This is My blood. Then think that this is the same Jesus Christ that hung on the cross. The same Jesus that hung on the cross. He is right there out of greatest love for us!

3.  Song:  Take and Eat

4.  R.  Who are we that God loves us so much that He gives us Himself in such union when we receive the Eucharist and we become one in Him. One in God! Who are we that we can be united to God! That I become one in God and you become one in God! We become one with each other. Who are we that God loves us so much?

5.  Song:  I Love You Jesus

6.  R.  Jesus died on the cross so that we could share in His life and He nourishes this life through His very own Body and Blood!

7.  R.  Jesus waits in the Tabernacle in this world and longs and thirsts for us to come and to be with Him for He is no less present than the day He hung on the cross. This is Jesus Christ, the Son of God! He is so close to us in this room, for He is in the Chapel and He is in our midst!

8.  R.  God is here! Let us bend low and realize how we are loved and favored that He cares for us!

9.  R.  Let us see ourselves as the Father's creation. God the Father created us with greatest love in His own image and likeness. Let us hear the gentle voice of Jesus as He calls out in our hearts: I love you, I love you, I love you. Even though we are not perfect, when we sin, we recognize our sin and tell Him we are sorry and then go about our job to spread the light to this world for He knows that we are not perfect although He wants us to strive to be perfect. He is so gentle and loving to us. He forgives all our sins and He gave the power to the priest to take away all our sins! Who are we that God gives the priest the power to remove our sins through Him? We are His chosen children! We are the children of God! We are His loved ones for whom Jesus Christ came to this earth, shed His blood, gave His body and remains with us this day in His Divinity and humanity, waiting for us to come and to be with Him.

10.  Jesus:  My dear children, you are on your spiritual journey. I want to walk hand in hand with you. As you go through these days in Lent, draw yourselves ever closer to My Passion and My Death. Realize more and more My immense love for you, for I truly want you to go out into the world and spread this love to your brothers. These are your brothers! You are one body!

Note:  Fr. Carter's Newsletter and My Writings

    Fr. Carter and I merged more and more in our writings as we progressed.

    Jesus wished this Newsletter written at the same time to be a part of this book.

    Jesus always said my writings and Fr. Carter's should be published together by dates.

    As we progressed into the Priestly Newsletter II there was a unity in the Newsletter of my messages and Fr. Carter's Priestly Newsletter as Jesus directed him.

      He always said about the Priestly Newsletter Book II this is our Book — the Lord gave to the priests and the world.

    These writings are to help to bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart and help renew the Church and the world.

                    Baptism of Jesus

                    (1)  Matthew 3: 16

    And when Jesus had been baptised he at once came up from the water, and suddenly the heavens opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on him.

                    (2)  Matthew 3: 17

Mysteries of Light

Baptism of Jesus

                    (1)  Matthew 3: 3

This was the man spoken of by the prophet Isaiah 
when he said:

                     A voice of one that cries in the desert,
                    ‘Prepare a way for the Lord,
                    make his paths straight.’   
 

                    (2)  Matthew 3: 13

    Then Jesus appeared: he came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptised by John.

                    (3)  Matthew 3: 14

    John tried to dissuade him, with the words, ‘It is I who need baptism from you, and yet you come to me!’

                    (4)  Matthew 3: 17

    And suddenly there was a voice from heaven, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on him.’

                    (5)  Jesus has come, then, not to destroy anything that is authentically human, but to perfect it by leading it to a graced fulfillment.
                                                                                                                                                  (Spirituality Handbook by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.)
                    (6)
  We, through our incorporation into Christ which occurs at Baptism, are meant to relive the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.
                                                                                                                                                  (Spirituality Handbook by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.)
                    (7)  The Christian is initiated into the mystery of Christ, into his or her role in prolonging the Incarnation, through Baptism.
                                                                                                                                                  (Spirituality Handbook by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.)

but may have eternal life.

                    Marriage at Cana

                    (1) 

In this extremely meaningful passage from his encyclical, Redemptoris Mater (The Mother of the Redeemer), Pope John Paul II tells us that Mary is the Mother of Christ, that she is the Mother of the Church, that she is Mother of each of us in and through the Church, and that she is the Church's model. All of these truths are most intimately connected.  (Mother at Our Side  by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.)

                    (2) 

Being Mother of Christ, Mary is also spiritual mother of His members whom Christ has formed into His body, the Church. She is also model of the Church as all good mothers are models for their children. Mary, the best of mothers, is the perfect exemplar, the perfect model, of what it means to be a follower of Christ. She guides the entire Church in greater assimilation to Christ.  (Mother at Our Side  by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.)

                    (3)  Christ performed His first public miracle at Cana.

                    (4)  John 2: 1-2

    The mother of Jesus was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited.

                    (5)  John 2: 3

    And they ran out of wine, since the wine provided for the feast had all been used, and the mother  of Jesus said to him, ‘They have no wine.’

                    (6)  John 2: 4

    Jesus said, ‘Woman, what do you want from me? My hour has not come yet.’

                    (7)  John 2: 5

    His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you.

                    (8)  Jesus turned water into wine at Cana.
                    (9)  Mary has powerful intercession.
                  (10)  Ask Mary to ask Jesus.

      

 

 

                    Kingdom of God

                    (1)  The Mosaic covenant prefigured the covenant
                            which was to be established by Christ.
                    (2)  Yahweh had given Himself to the Jews in a special way.
                            He was their God and they were His people.
                    (3)  Jesus wants an intimate union with us.
                    (4)  Jesus is the King of heaven and earth.
                    (5)  Jesus took on flesh

                            John 1: 14
                                The Word became flesh,
                                 he lived among us,

                    (6)  Christ took on our sins.
                    (7)  Christ died on the cross - crowned with thorns.
                    (8)  Christ is priest, prophet and king.
                    (9)  We spread the consecration to the Sacred Heart
                            so He will reign in their hearts and their homes.
                  (10)  The Shepherds of Christ exists to help bring the people to make
                            Jesus the King of their hearts and Mary the Queen.

   

 

                    Transfiguration

                    (1)  Mark 9: 1-3

And he said to them, 'In truth I tell you, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God come with power.'

Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John and led them up a high mountain on their own by themselves. There in their presence he was transfigured: his clothes became brilliantly white, whiter than any earthly bleacher could make them.

                    (2)  Mark 9: 7

And a cloud came, covering them in shadow; and from the cloud there came a voice, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to him.’

                    (3)  We can be changed from our imperfect ways.
                    (4)  We need God's grace.
                    (5)  God gives us baptism.
                    (6)  God gives us the Holy Eucharist.
                    (7)  God gives us the Sacrament of Penance.
                    (8)  God gives us the Church.
                    (9)  When we go to the Eucharist God can
                            fill us more and more with His grace.
                  (10)  As we are filled more and more with
                            His grace we can become more
                            deeply united in Him.

      

 

 

                    Institution of the Eucharist

                    (1)  Luke 22: 14

When the time came he took his place at table, and the apostles with him.

                    (2)  Luke 22: 17-18

    Then, taking a cup, he gave thanks and said, ‘Take this and share it among you, because from now on, I tell you, I shall never again drink wine until the kingdom of God comes.’

                    (3)  Luke 22: 19-20

    Then he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ He did the same with the cup after supper, and said, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood poured out for you.

                    (4)  Jesus gives us the Holy Eucharist today.
                    (5)  Jesus gives us Himself in the Holy Eucharist.
                    (6)  Jesus is truly present in His Divinity and
                            humanity in the Holy Eucharist.
                    (7)  We are filled with His life when
                            we reverently go to the Eucharist.

                    (8) 

A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

     Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

 

                  (10) 

Prayer for Union with Jesus

    Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994
