                 Dear Apostles, Servants and Handmaids —

                    I give my heart to Jesus and
                  Mary with you in love.

                    Jesus wants us to live God's
                will and not to give up.

                    Pray we can make reparation to
                our good God for all our offenses
                in serving Him and in pride blocking
                His mission.

                    Our mission is service and love. To
                help spread unity and peace to a troubled
                world.

                    This means we grow in greater
                holiness — always putting God first —
                above our selfish pride, lust, envy,
                jealousies, greed, gluttony etc.

                    I pray for all of you to help
                me serve Jesus in this mission —
                I am not afraid, but confident
                that our love for souls and our
                focus on His honor and glory will help
                us no matter what torrential rains
                come.

                    Satan is pressing down and we must
                pray to spread the consecration as
                Mary told us at Fatima to bring peace
                to the world.

                    Believe this — we can effect the
                world united to the Mass and striving for
                greater holiness, not rebellion —
                loving God with our whole
                heart and our whole soul.

                As we go to Mass today unite in the
                greatest oneness that God's will —
                will be done in our lives and in this
                mission - always —

                    Pray for the people who are tempted

                I have watched each person to be extremely
                tested — the remnant is left
                    pray not to be put to the test —
                    pray to be holy

                Beg for grace not to give into pride —
                    like Adam and Eve —

                But holy like the New Adam and
                    the New Eve

                May God Bless us and give us
                    strength and love.

                            Rita

 

 

December 27, 2007 - 7:55 am After Communion

                    God wants an offering from a pure,
                heart, I purely offer myself to
                God —

                    My offering is pure, not tainted
                with greed, lust, jealousy,
                envy.

                    My offering is myself loving You
                so much for Your honor and glory

                    Do we think about ourselves when we
                claim to serve God — is our goal our
                own self-glory — rather than making
                reparation for the sins of the world and
                our sins when we should be begging
                for grace — we are focused on ourselves
                and what we get out of it.

                    Do we sin in the service of God —
                hurting ourselves, offending God with
                selfishness and sin while we claim
                to the world — we did it for His
                honor and glory when in fact we
                sinned trying to do something selfishly
                and doing it for our honor and glory —
                not God's honor and glory and were very
                unhappy because we were sinful
                doing it and we hurt others too.

                    I hear the words of the Gospel
                where Saul persecuted God — if Saul
                was not thrown off his horse and
                saw a light would he continue persecuting
                God —

                Are we like this?

                We have our own agenda and instead of making
                    room in our hearts for Jesus, making a
                    bed for Him in our hearts —

                    we threw Jesus out of the manger
                and did the service in church for
                our honor and glory, many times.

                    God forgive us for our sins.
                    Did Saul martyr Stephen?
                    He didn't see his sin —

                God tells us to spread the consecration to
                    the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart.

                In going to the Immaculate Heart the Holy Spirit works
                    bringing us forth children of light —

                Light has dawned in the soul that lives
                    to serve God and deeply love Him —
                    whose focus is God — not their own agenda
                    to serve themselves
                even sin to gain things in Church for
                    greedy, lustful, jealous, prideful
                    honor and glory for themselves.

                We are blind —

                The Mass is to be offered by holy priests —
                    loving the world and the Church and
                    most of all loving Jesus —
                    doing it for the honor and glory of God —
                    for thanksgiving to God —

                To help make reparation to God for our
                    offenses against God —

                For grace for us and the whole world and
                    the souls in purgatory
                    and it is the greatest act of love
                    we can give to God
                    ourselves united to Jesus
                    offered to the Father
                    in the Holy Spirit
                    with all the angels and saints
                    and the souls in purgatory —

                No wonder Jesus said this Christmas

                    "No place to lay My head, make your
                        heart a bed for me to lay My
                        head"

                And many act impurely and are greedy and
                    selfish and do things in Church
                    for their own reputation —
                    for their own honor and glory —
                    for themselves and

                They sin against God who loves them
                    so much and
                    they pass up the great opportunity
                        to offer a more pure offering
                        in the Mass

                Jesus said a lot of people
                    threw Him out of the manger
                    on Christmas and they never
                    intended to mount the cross

    

12 Years Ago

from the Mass Book

 

December 27, 1995

LET US LOVE THE TWO HEARTS OF JESUS AND MARY
IN THE RECEPTION OF THEHOLY EUCHARIST.

HE GAVE HIMSELF TO US ON THE CROSS. HE GIVES HIMSELF TO US IN THE EUCHARIST.

How great was the act of love, God gave to this world, when He gave Himself and died on the cross. He gives Himself to us this day in the Holy Eucharist.

The greatest commandment is that we must love God with our whole heart, our whole soul, and our whole being. This is a commandment. If we are to enter heaven, we must follow the commandments. They are commands given by God for us to follow.

The greatest act we can do on this earth is an act of loving God. The reason for our existence is to love God. In the sacrament of His greatest love, He gives Himself to us. This is an act of love on His part. We are called to respond by giving ourselves in love to Him.

This is the purpose of the Holy Eucharist: to unite in such oneness with our Holy, Loving God. Our all consuming passion should be that of loving God. How many go to the Eucharist with the sole purpose of giving great love to God? He wants us to love Him. He wants souls to tell Him how much they truly love Him. This is the most intimate act of love when Jesus gives Himself-Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity to man. If it is such an act of love, how are we receiving Him in Communion? We should beg God, in this most intimate union with Him, to help us to love Him with greatest love.

Jesus is a Person. He wants our love. The Holy Spirit wants such intimacy with us. Our Father wants us to love Him. In the Eucharist, we unite with God. In this intimate act of uniting with our beloved God, with Divinity, we must pour out our love to God. We must pour out our heart to the most adorable Heart of Jesus. Jesus is so unjustly treated by many of His beloved souls He loves so much. Let us help make reparation to the Almighty God by loving God with our whole heart, our whole soul, and our whole being in the sacrament of His greatest love. This is the Gift of Himself.

Think of how it is to love someone and give your all for that person, to pour out your heart to him or her and then be treated with coldness and neglect. It hurts our heart so much more when we deeply love someone to be rejected by that person. Jesus loves us with the deepest love. We cannot fully comprehend this love. Let us love Him with the deepest love. Let us love Mary and her Immaculate Heart. Let us love her as the Mother of God. Let us love her as the virgin who bore the Son of God. May we, in the reception of the Eucharist pour out our love to Him, to this adorable Heart. May we pour out our love to His Holy Mother.

Mary said at Fatima that Jesus wants His Heart venerated next to the heart of His Mother. Let us love these two Hearts as we receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist. Then we are so deeply united with God. We see Their two Hearts surrounded with thorns for the injustices against Their Hearts. Let us help make reparation daily as we receive Him in the Eucharist. This is a special time to help make reparation to Their wounded Hearts.

Let us remember how He poured His love out to us on the cross and how He pours out His love to us now when He gives us Himself in the Eucharist, the Eucharist which contains His Heart of burning love. His Heart was pierced with a lance. Her heart was invisibly pierced with a sword. As the wounds in Their Hearts are deep, so too is Their love so deep.

He does not want "surface love". He wants hearts filled with deep burning love.

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.
