Mary speaks: I am Our Lady of Snows. I come to cover the earth with a soft white blanket of my love.
I come to bring peace to the earth. I tell you to let go of the anxiety in your heart and experience my peace and His love.
I am your heavenly Mother. I come to hold you and caress you and take you to my Immaculate Heart.
"Oneness" is the mission of the Shepherds of Christ -oneness is the mystery of the TrinityOneness is the life here-after in the beatific visionBeing one in Him -is the gift of the MassChrist, the Son of God gives us His Body and Blood-how one is thisThink of the gift God gives in giving us Himself in such a profound waythen He says "Do this in remembrance of Me"He does not like the scattered flock, scatteredThe work of the Shepherd's of Christ is that Ezekiel scripture in the Mass of the Sacred Heart-He will lead the stayed ones home to His HeartThe Church is His bodyHe wants onenessThe Church is "one" "holy" "Catholic" and "apostolic".One-one-one in HimDwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary in deep oneness-relationship likened to the Trinity-the Trinity is pure oneness-Three Persons-one Divine GodSo simple-so profoundThe devil works against this with divisionHell is isolationHell is hell-total absence of love-relationshipSelfishness-not other focusedTo experience division for me is very hard because God is unityI see the world as one-I pray for thisI watched God's grace in the retreat change the heartsI watch God's grace in the hierarchy responding to the voice of the Good Shepherd in the Priestly NewsletterFollow-He calls the strayed sheep home to His Heart -He gives them the ultimate Feast His Body and Blood for NourishmentHe gives us His Word-that His Word is alive in usSuffering is not synonymous with lack of peace and love-it is seeing the imperfections and sin and wanting so deeply the whole of creation to be in one accordIt is hopeIt is love, like Fr. John said, Christ gave the greatest act of love in suffering. The sacrifice of Calvary is now sacramentally made present in the Mass on the altar through the consecrated hands of the priests-so very awesomeWe are always on our way to a fuller life in Him-until we rest in heaven in the fullness of life in the beatific vision (for those who get to heaven)This is reality to meI see myself hanging part of me up there looking-in, part of me hanging suspended in the skyReality is we are always growing in greater life in Him-being more full of grace-knowing with greater wisdomand being like St. Paul it is no longer I who live, but He who lives in me".God first loved us and it is our response to God.Yes Yes Yes-even in suffering for behind lies secrets into the hidden mystery and God unites to the soul in consolation and suffering -deeplyAs I become more one in Him, my desire to have greater oneness is my driving force to pray for things to be the way God wants.How can I grow in greater oneness in Him and not want it to be harmoniousOut of greatest love for us He gave us the Mass He died for usso that we could be reconciled to ChristSo we could live as the Father intendsHe was driven out of love to the cross, like a runner running a race, running for the sake of His beloved souls.So to put on Christ-to be as St. Paul says, is to want to do everything we can to lead to this oneness.The Church is oneoneoneGoing to the Eucharist makes us oneConsecrating our hearts to Jesus and Mary makes us oneBaptism is a special gift that unites us-makes us "sharers" in His life.Like the vine and branchesSo hell is division absence of love-isolationGod gives us lawsGod gives us structure
