Hebrews 9: 15, 24-28

This makes him the mediator of a new covenant, so that, now that a death has occurred to redeem the sins committed under an earlier covenant, those who have been called to an eternal inheritance may receive the promise.

It is not as though Christ had entered a man–made sanctuary which was merely a model of the real one; he entered heaven itself, so that he now appears in the presence of God on our behalf. And he does not have to offer himself again and again, as the high priest goes into the sanctuary year after year with the blood that is not his own, or else he would have had to suffer over and over again since the world began. As it is, he has made his appearance once and for all, at the end of the last age, to do away with sin by sacrificing himself. Since human beings die only once, after which comes judgement, so Christ too, having offered himself only once to bear the sin of many, will manifest himself a second time, sin being no more, to those who are waiting for him, to bring them salvation.


Psalm 98: 1-6

Sing a new song to Yahweh, 
for he has performed wonders, 
his saving power is in his right hand 
and his holy arm. 

Yahweh has made known his saving power, 
revealed his saving justice for the nations to see, 
mindful of his faithful love and his constancy 
to the House of Israel. 

The whole wide world has seen 
the saving power of our God. 
Acclaim Yahweh, all the earth, 
burst into shouts of joy! 

Play to Yahweh on the harp, 
to the sound of instruments; 
to the sound of trumpet and horn, 
acclaim the presence of the King.

Mark 3: 22-30

The scribes who had come down from Jerusalem were saying, 'Beelzebul is in him,' and, 'It is through the prince of devils that he drives devils out.' So he called them to him and spoke to them in parables, ‘How can Satan drive out Satan? If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot last. And if a household is divided against itself, that household can never last. Now if Satan has rebelled against himself and is divided, he cannot last either—it is the end of him. But no one can make his way into a strong man’s house and plunder his property unless he has first tied up the strong man. Only then can he plunder his house. 'In truth I tell you, all human sins will be forgiven, and all the blasphemies ever uttered; but anyone who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven, but is guilty of an eternal sin.' This was because they were saying, 'There is an unclean spirit in him.'

                    principal saints of our diocese

                St. Francis de Sales is a great friend
                    of the Gospel —

                The Church is made up of the people
                    of God —

                The Church is the body of Christ —

                St. Francis de Sales wrote the
                    introduction of the Devout Life —

                We are to have a deep relationship
                    with Christ —

                The beatific vision in heaven
                    is our goal —


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.


                R. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit live in the
                    graced, baptized soul


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

    The Christian community is a terrestrial reflection of the ultimate and absolute community—namely, the Trinity. In a special way, we are privileged to give witness to Trinitarian life, a life of divine intimacy and loving. From all eternity, the persons of the Trinity are united in the most intimate bonds of knowledge and love; these have also brought about creation and redemption.

       Grace, or the Christ-life, is a created participation in Trinitarian life. This Christ-life, consequently, calls us to a special existence of knowing and loving. Christian faith and love, which are created participations in the Trinity's knowing and loving, allow us to know and love God in a special manner. Faith and love also give us a new capacity to relate to both our fellow Christians and to all others as well...

                R. What is important is God is
                    with me —

                Relationship with God —

                Don't miss the big picture —
                    everything is centered in our
                    relationship with God —

                Love —

                Giving what brings harmony
                    according to God's will —

                Not being selfish —

                Trusting others and working with
                    them according to God's will —

                People are to love each other

                Marriage is given to learn to love each
                    other -- give and take

                Give this love in children —

                But how can the Church, the body of
                    Christ be loving, as God wants
                    if the love, married couples
                    learned, is not carried on to
                    the community — one's vocation
                    in the Church —

                Those who cannot seem to make relationships
                    with others work — learn or
                    don't learn —

                Having a separation in marriage is so

                But to live one's life there are 2 choices
                    1) To learn from this relationship
                        to try to help others
                        be more deeply united
                        with us because of our
                        experience —
                        tough love —
                        wanting to love —
                        recognizing we were called to
                            love and give love to
                            God and others
                        learning how to give —
                        because as it said in the Gospel
                        "A house divided against itself
                            will not stand"
                        We are 'wounded healers' —
                        We can bring healing in love
                            to our relationships in the
                            future because we suffered so

                    2) or a person can decide they will never
                        trust in love again —
                        close up, lock up, put up a wall and
                        be bitter —
                        living to prove they were right
                            in that separated marriage —
                        projecting this anger on innocent
                            others —

                We were created to be intimate with
                    certain others — to grow deeply
                    in love —
                    to forgive and be forgiven

                A man set about a journey — life —
                    He wanted to love God and others —
                    He 'fell in love' and married —
                    He wanted it his way —
                    She wanted it her way —
                    They divorced —

                    There was the shame of dealing
                        with family and friends —
                    He didn't want to ever look wrong —
                    He lived his life with a hard wall —
                        proving he was right —
                        never getting close to anyone —
                        ready on the defensive —

                Jesus: I give these examples because
                    relationships of love in families —
                    heartaches of failures and
                    deep love as one in great harmony —
                    are the beginning of carrying on
                    the love I want like My Heart
                    to others —

                I had the love of Joseph and Mary
                    and My Father in heaven —
                    family love —

                I had to deal with the hatred of those
                    who hated Me —

                I loved — I gave — I died for
                    those who put Me to death —

                I gave you the Blue Books about
                    the love of My Pure and Perfect
                    Heart —

                Rita is a messenger of these letters
                    describing My pure and perfect
                    love for you —

                It is a gift I give for this intimacy
                    that is needed to love like
                    the Heart of Jesus more and
                    more —

                To live your life in love
                To give love to God and others as the
                    greatest commandment demands


Matthew 22: 36-40

'Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?' Jesus said to him, 'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.'


                Jesus: To pray to learn to love like the Blue Books

                To pray for yourself to learn to forgive and
                    work as a group like Blue Book III

                A house divided against itself
                    does not stand —

                Division in the world

                The family is the little unit to bring
                    love to the world —

                Not to close off and say — I don't
                    have to work with others
                    outside my family —

                Learning to love, forgiving,
                    giving, tough love is the
                    story of life —

                Until you are wrapped in the arms
                    of the love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
                    in eternity — if you go to heaven —
                    It is a reward —

                Love is giving as I gave to you in
                    My passion, in My death,
                    dying for your sins on the cross —

                Satan is the father of lies —

                He tells you when you are unloving
                    there was no sin —

                Then you lie to yourself as you
                    put up walls and do not
                    communicate — working in love
                    with each other —
                    No one is perfect —
                    No one loves like I do —
                    You are to live to be more perfected
                        as your heavenly Father —
                    You are to love more and more
                        like My Heart —
                    To learn about love in your
                        family — to bring love
                        to parish, community —
                        relationships outside the family
                        the world —

                You are commissioned in baptism to
                    spread the good news —

                A person did so much for Church
                    projects, but they were angry,
                    jealous, trying to control —

                Why if they did so much for others —
                    personally did they punish
                    others for giving these things —

                A person did 'this'
                A person did 'that'
                A person did 'this'

                But they were angry, mad, people
                    didn't come and make them
                    feel great because of what they did —
                    so they were bitter and hateful —

                I died in perfect peace —
                I gave the last beat of My Heart
                I gave the last drop of My blood —
                I give you the Church —
                I give you Myself in the Eucharist —
                What more do you want?

                When you act angry against your
                    brother inside to bitterness —
                    punishing them — it is coming
                    from within you —

                Clean your hearts so you give purely —
                    like I gave on the cross —

                A person who is a spiritual director
                    tells you when the evil one is
                    working —

                You must discern the spirits —

                Thus SPIRITUAL - DIRECTOR

                St. Ignatius told you how the evil
                    one comes as an angel of
                    light — then turns dark —
                    He says I do this and this and this
                        and now I have a right to be
                        mad at you for you not
                        making me feel good —

                Life has problems —

                Problems in a marriage are to
                    be worked out in love —

                Marriages were to last as people
                    worked in love — being one
                    and forgiving and giving —

                Then this love was to be carried out
                    to others —

                Satan presses down in trying to
                    stop commitments of love —

                I give you the sacrament of Marriage —
                I give you Holy Orders —

                Satan attacks "commitments" of love —

                I want religious in My Church giving
                    their lives as My Spouse — loving
                    Me as their Spouse and giving to
                    the children of the Church

                I want married life to bring purity
                    in love to the world to the
                    human family —

                I want your love to grow —

                As I showed you, I didn't die on
                    the cross for some —
                    I died for all —

                I gave, bloodied, bruised, beaten
                    I gave love —

                Satan is the father of lies —
                    He tells you to be divided —

                He tells you: "You were wronged —
                    You gave and you are cheated —
                    You are to control —
                    You are to not trust"

                Love — real love — gives and
                    is everlasting —

                A person that loves — doesn't need to
                    start a fire to keep the other
                    Love wants the other to do God's will —

                In the abuse cycle a person abuses
                    in two ways —
                        actively attacking —
                        passive-aggressive —
                        Holding back to punish others —

                    provoking like a woodpecker
                        to try the patience of a
                        'peace-bearing - loving soul' —

                This is wishing harm to others —
                This is unloving —
                This is sinning against God and your
                    brother —

                God the Father created a harmonious
                    loving world and man sinned —
                    His tendencies because of
                    his wounded human nature
                    is to the deadly sins — 

                    pride, greed, envy, wrath, lust, gluttony, sloth  

                Heaven is a reward for those who
                    loved and served the Lord —

                To raise above this tendency and
                    to will to love —
                    to grow in love —
                    to forgive and be forgiven —
                    to work in harmony so
                    you do not block others
                    trying with all their heart
                    to do God's will —

                Most of all — to love — when others
                    persecuted Me — I loved —

                I gave for love of you —

                No strings attached —

                Problems I told Rita in 1996 were
                    part of life —

                With Fr. Carter by her side — I told
                    her and him —
                    the problems will never end —
                    You must continue to love
                    Me and serve Me and do this
                    work for this Movement to
                    continue -

                As founder — Fr. Carter said yes to all
                    the problems of the Movement —

                As co-founder Rita delivered My
                    message and stayed faithful to
                    My call — despite what anyone
                    else did that was to stop
                    My Movement —

                This is My Movement —

                It is a Movement to teach about the
                    love I told you of My Heart
                    in the Blue Books

                My love is not like the world —

                The prayer chapters were to spread
                    all over the world praying
                    for the Church
                    and for the world —

                I gave you My Plan —

                I will not change My Plan —

                Like Fr. Carter demanded obedience
                    to the rule, the Plan of
                    this Movement —

                The devil wants people to act on
                    their impure thoughts —
                    He presses down in a
                    crippling and paralyzing way
                    to tempt a person to fight
                    to be right —

                Here is a picture

                            in a group 


                Jesus: A & B disagree
                    B wages a fight to win
                    He just wants to win —
                    He doesn't even know why
                        he is fighting —
                    He is consumed with angry
                        feelings — Satan is
                        pressing on

                He won't give —
                The all or nothing —
                His sight is blinded —
                Satan presses over a period of time —

                The council of B become satan
                    pressing down in angry thoughts

                B does not see the whole
                B is led by the council of his
                    angry thoughts which are

                B may be jealous, wanting control
                    but his thoughts come from impurities

                B acts —

                B's actions are not based
                    on the will of God —

                B's actions are based on
                    his impure thoughts —
                    fired by anger —
                    and counseled by satan —

                His decision in fact has
                    rebelled against God's will

                His decision based on his own
                    impure thoughts —
                    fired by satan pressing down
                    in a paralyzing and crippling way —

                I gave you this message 18 years ago —
                    in the hand of a child —
                    the first message of the Blue Books 




Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Cling to Me


May 13, 1993 

Jesus: My dear child, if you stay close to Me, then I live in you and you live in Me. I am He Who created you and I love you with such an intensity that you will never know. My words are your truth. You must abide in My heart in all things. There is no room for doubt. My ways are steadfast, direct, and without error.

    You must stay rooted in Me to ward off the power of the evil one. His grip is paralyzing and crippling. His power is stronger every day.

    When you live in Me, I am in your heart and he has no power over Me. I am your God. I am your true lover. I want to protect you. I want to guard you from this force. Stay rooted firmly in Me and he will have no power.

    I am He Who comforts you. My hand is upon you. Hold tight to Me, My child. My eyes are fixed right on you. You are My most precious child. I love you as no other can. My arms are about you. My tenderness surrounds you. My love is in your heart. You go not alone. I walk with you.

    I share every aspect of your life with you. Cling to Me, feel My presence. It is warm and secure within your chest. There is no room for fear, for I cast out fear and bring you comfort and joy.

                Jesus: A HOUSE DIVIDED
                    AGAINST ITSELF
                    WILL NOT STAND

                LOVE of one another is
                    the answer —

                R. Communication —

                If your main communication is
                    the counsel of satan against
                    your neighbor in your head and
                    you don't work things out
                    in love who God willed
                    you to work with —

                Living a life against God's will
                    is like Adam and Eve hiding
                    from God in the garden —


Genesis 3: 8-11

The man and his wife heard the sound of Yahweh God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from Yahweh God among the trees of the garden. But Yahweh God called to the man. ‘Where are you?’ he asked. ‘I heard the sound of you in the garden,’ he replied. ‘I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.’ ‘Who told you that you were naked?’ he asked. ‘Have you been eating from the tree I forbade you to eat?’


                And the gravity of sin grows
                    as they become more blind —
                    sin is past down


Genesis 4: 2-10

...Now Abel became a shepherd and kept flocks, while Cain tilled the soil. Time passed and Cain brought some of the produce of the soil as an offering for Yahweh, while Abel for his part brought the first–born of his flock and some of their fat as well. Yahweh looked with favour on Abel and his offering. But he did not look with favour on Cain and his offering, and Cain was very angry and downcast. Yahweh asked Cain, ‘Why are you angry and downcast? If you are doing right, surely you ought to hold your head high! But if you are not doing right, Sin is crouching at the door hungry to get you. You can still master him.’ Cain said to his brother Abel, ‘Let us go out’; and while they were in the open country, Cain set on his brother Abel and killed him. 

    Yahweh asked Cain, ‘Where is your brother Abel?’ ‘I do not know,’ he replied. ‘Am I my brother’s guardian?’ ‘What have you done?’ Yahweh asked. ‘Listen! Your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground.


                R. There was strife among brothers
                    Jacob and Esau
                    Joseph and his brothers
                    the prodigal son

                Like a loving Father —
                    He welcomes the lost son
                        back — the other is

                God the Father —
                    created us to love
                    created us to have commitment
                    created us to prepare us for heaven

                God the Father —
                    calls us to our vocation —


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

Chapter 8 - The Christian Encounters Others and the World

In various ways, we have already discussed the Christian's encounter with others and the world (see chapter 3, for example). We now wish to continue this theme of encounter with greater specificity and extensiveness.

The true Christian is imbued with consciousness of others. That is to say, the true Christian is keenly aware that, to a great degree, God intends each of us to press on toward maturity in the spiritual life through a proper encounter with others. Indeed, the Christian imperative reminds us that we are to walk life's path, not in isolation, but hand in hand with our fellow human beings.

To authentically encounter others we must be properly aware of who they really are; we must, in short, be able to penetrate beyond surface appearances, which may or may not be appealing to us, and contact others in their core existence. When we are truly in touch with others at the core of their beings, we are simultaneously aware of their awesome dignity. We are conscious that these persons are created and redeemed by God in his love. Fortified with this proper awareness, we are thus in a position to relate to them as we should.

Excerpt from Response in Christ by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

e) Relationship with Members of the Church

There is but one true Church of Christ. Yet this one Church has three different states of existence. There is the pilgrim Church, the Church of this world, composed of members who have received the grace of Christ and strive for its development. They have not yet obtained the goal of their efforts, as have the members of the heavenly Church, who enjoy God in eternal happiness. The Church suffering is an intermediate state of existence necessary for those who had not achieved the required purification as members of the pilgrim Church. Although there are these three phases of the Church’s existence, there is a profound union existing between all the members. All these members possess the same basic life of grace in Christ, and this common life establishes the most intimate bonds of love. In our preceding chapter, we discussed the pilgrim Church. Let us now consider the Church suffering and the heavenly Church.

The members of the Church suffering are those who have departed from this life in an incomplete state of Christian development. Their development is incomplete in the sense that grace has not fully taken possession of them, and, as a result, they are yet closed in upon themselves to a greater or lesser degree. They as yet cannot open themselves out in complete love to the Triune God in the beatific vision. They must undergo a further purification, a purification which could have been achieved upon earth with merit. Now the purification must be achieved with no merit attached. The pain of this purification is mixed with the certain expectation of achieving the vision of God. We can hasten the advent of this vision for this people by the offering of prayers and other good works. Scripture itself refers to our action on behalf of those in purgatory in Chapter 12 of the Second Book of Maccabees beginning with verse 38.

The members of the heavenly Church are those in whom the life of grace has taken full possession and has reached its completion in the life of glory. Faith now is unnecessary, as the light of glory gives the human intellect a new strength and capacity for seeing God face-to-face. While the Christian was a wayfarer, he received the imprint of the indwelling Trinity as he shared in God’s own life. Now in heaven that grace-life and possession of God reaches its completion—the absolute completion is not achieved, however, until the resurrection of the body. The divine persons give Themselves to the beatified in a profound union far surpassing that of the indwelling of the Trinity experienced here below.

This life of heaven is still the Christ-life, for just as we possess a share in Trinitarian life here below as mediated by Christ, and exercise this grace-life as structured by Him, so also in heaven is the mediation of Christ present. In the words of Rahner, "One always sees the Father through Jesus. Just as immediately as this, for the directness of the vision of God is not a denial of the mediatorship of Christ as man."14 And not only does the humanity of Christ unite the blessed to God, but also, in some way, to the whole of creation. This is merely a completion of what is begun here below, namely, the union with Christ in His humanity establishing the Christian in a special relationship with God, with other men, and with the whole of creation. We have a glimpse, therefore, of the fullness of life which members of the heavenly Church possess.

The heavenly Church, as St. Thomas says, is the true Church.15 The Church of this earth and the Church of purgatory are, each in its own way, reaching out in loving hope for the heavenly Jerusalem. Vatican II puts it very simply: "The Church, to which we are called in Christ Jesus, and in which we acquire sanctity through the grace of God, will attain her full perfection only in the glory of heaven."16

The members of the heavenly Church can help us in living our life of grace until we too share its fullness with them. Their power of intercession on our behalf is but another ramification of the communal aspect of Christianity. We are meant to help others grow in Christ. We, in turn, are intended by God to receive aid from others—yes, from members of the heavenly Church, as well as from those with whom we dwell here below.

Not only can we be aided by the saints’ intercession, but the example of the canonized saints can also be of great value to us. They have concretely proved that full holiness is possible. Such an inspiration is of real worth when we are tempted to think that Christian sanctity in its higher degrees is impossible of attainment. Moreover, the canonized saints, in their diversity, teach us that there are many authentic versions of Christian holiness. They can be innovators in showing us that there are numerous possibilities in assimilating the mystery of Christ, although the basic assimilation remains the same for all Christians of all times. In the opinion of Rahner this is one of the chief roles the canonized saints exert in the life of the Church.17

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusI Died For You

February 23, 1994

Jesus: I want this emotion in the letter I told you to write. I, Jesus, Son of God, talk to you with such emotion! I am He Who died a brutal death for love of you. I died for you! I love you this much, to give My Life! Yet you couldn't even write when I asked you. You must do exactly as I say. I do not want you ever to say no to Me!

I have such emotion! I am telling you how I died a brutal death and you, My child, did not write for Me! What more can I do? What more do they want? You put others before Me or you would do as I command. I want you to do as I tell you every moment.

I am the Lord. I am the Son of God. Such emotion I let you feel for My death. I died. I am a person. I was human and I died for you. Think of yourself giving your life for someone and they do not care. What can I do to shake you? What more can I say? I am here and I am loving you and pleading with you to listen to Me with this emotion that God is telling you. I am Jesus. I died for you. I gave My life for you and do you even listen, My little sweet one? You didn't want to write it for My children. When I give you a command, you write. When I say do, you do. Selflessness! I am pushing you because I need your total surrender. Do not ever deny My writing to My loved ones. You have a responsibility. I don't care where you are when I talk. I am God and I talk to you. I am so present to you.

Listen. I need your selflessness. I need your surrender. I need your life, given for love of Me and Me alone. I need you to be the light that shines on the hill, that does not go in and out but is constant in My love. I need your commitment. I need your attention at every moment. I am feeding you My words every moment on paper and in your hand. You must obey Me exactly as I command. No questions, only action. I want action. Now! You write when I say write. I don't care where you are. You worry not for others. I am giving you the mighty medicine. Would you tell the doctor to wait? I am God and I do not ever want to wait while you play a safe game with Me. When I say do something, I want you to do it. You are My beloved and I am filling you with fire.

I am pushing you to do that which I need done. Do not ever stop to look around. Keep your focus on Me and My commands for you. I am using you every moment. I must be able to count on your constant consent to do My will immediately! I am calling you to this work and I want you to comply. I love you ardently. I am so full of love for you. Focus on this and this alone. I am Who am. I am God, child. Do not ever hesitate. Do not doubt or think. You must act as I act in you or My work will not be done.

Be selfless about My commands. You will do My work. You will spread My words of love and create emotion with My songs and I will use you to bring My flock to My love. I love every soul! You must spread My love.

Note: (Meditating on the Crucifixion) Going to Mass at the seminary at 8:00 a.m. was rushed. He said to me, "Where are you going, child. Do you not feel My presence with you?" A calm came over me. Then He started lamenting how He died for us, how He is a true person and He loves us so much. He said, "I died for you."

R. He gave His life for us. He is the little lamb led to the slaughter out of love for us. He said, "I need you to do this work now and I am pushing you." He was so upset! He died for us. He loves us so much as to give His life.

He begged me to spread His love, to tell others how He, bloodied, bruised and beaten, gave us His life.

Jesus: I am God. I am God. I died. Spread My love now! Now! Now! Now! Now! I am begging you not to hold back! Read these letters now, read and learn about My love. I beckon you to speak of My love. Shout it from the high roof. Proclaim it in the cities. Jesus Christ died for love of you and He is risen! I am He Who is God and I died for you!

Listen and preach My love and emotion here. Priests will create little cities, little cities in each church to spread the light of Christ to this sick world. Each priest can create his own little city, a powerhouse of God's love. God has all the power. His power is endless. It never runs out. It is might. You have no power except through Him. Churches filled with the intimate love of Jesus will be powerhouses.

I am God, My little ones. God can do all things. I can make your cities light up the darkness. I am the Way, the Truth, the Life. I am the light of life. I am God! I can do all things. I want to act in you. You need to be in constant union with Me. My priests, you need to be selfless. My soul and yours are one. I want to act in you.

Hold not back. Pray the Prayer for Union with Me.

                A House Divided Against itself
                    will not stand


                Excerpts from Blue Book III

Your Last Chance to Love

April 11, 1994

The way to Me is the way of the cross. You will wear My crown but it will not be a crown of glory, but a crown of thorns. You, My child, are loved so dearly by Me. Suffer with Me, but never doubt anything I tell you. I am God and I am speaking to you. What must I do to convince you? You doubt because Satan wants this stopped. Do not give in to him.

My child, My child, My favored, blessed child, I give you crosses because I love you. You I have loved dearly all through your life. Your crosses have brought you to Me and My love. Life will soon be over on this earth for you. All that matters are the things of God. Love all those around you as if it be your last chance to love. Live each day to love all around you. Live it as if it be your last day to live on this earth. Would you waste valuable time fuming and fretting? Time is short and souls will be lost. They will suffer the loss of their souls. You do not have time for any remorse. Your job is to preach My ardent love to My beloved ones. There is so much sin and so much blindness, but the kingdom of God awaits all those who love and serve the Lord.

Please, I beg of you, spread My love. Do not let Satan get you focused on yourself. Your work is to lead souls to My most ardent love. What an honor! I am awaiting My precious ones. Have faith, child. I am truly writing to you and I am God. I gave My all for love of you, My child. I died that you might live. Give yourself to Me now.


Anger Is Destructive-Love Heals

April 12, 1994 After Communion at All Saints Church 7:00a.m.

R. Love is healing. If you attack me and I respond with love by the grace of God, but let it fester later into anger, I have an active emotion inside of me. You hurt me. I was right, you were wrong. I get angry or I get depressed. Some action occurs within me. If, by the grace of God, I acted lovingly when you attacked me, then, when I go away, I must continue to dismiss any thoughts of how I have been wronged and beg God for His help to forgive and love you.


Satan's Way Is Division

April 12, 1994 After Communion at St. Gertrude Church

To preach the gospel in your very being, you must always be fixed in My love. When they tore My flesh, I loved them. I at no time responded to them with anything but love. The way to Me is the way of love. I forgave them. I forgive you for your sins.

You must always love and forgive. When they persecute you and holler every slander against you, remember the way to Me is love. Love those who persecute you. Love your attackers. Love your brothers. Love is action from the hearts. It is not lip service. Love is giving. Love is action. Love mends broken fences.

Satan's way is division, hatred, anger. These create such a destructive force! It is an energy that tears at the hearts of men. It is transmitted and lives in hearts, just as My love is transmitted and lives in hearts.

Purify your heart at every second. Keep it so clean. Do not let any anger, resentment, hatred for your brothers mount up by the side of your heart. Flush it away. Pray, pray, pray for grace. Pray for love. Pray for your brothers. You need My love to respond with love. I give you freely of My love when you ask. I am the source of all love. You come, you partake, you give to your brothers as I have given to you. Love is a force. It is a mighty life. It is a light that shines brightest in the darkest night.

Be at peace. Be full of joy. I am God. Do not fret or fume or doubt. Do not be angry or feel you have been wronged. These are from the evil one.

I am in control. I am God. I am by your side this very day in that cross you carry. You in your pain will learn My mighty lessons of love. I am molding you and shaping you into My mighty soldiers, soldiers in My army of love!

Be open, pray for love, pray for the grace to forgive. See Me dying on the cross. I held not back. I gave the last drop of My blood, the last beat of My Heart, for love of you! Can you not forgive your hurting brothers? I need you to love those who hurt you. I need you to forgive those who injure you. You are My soldiers. You will fight My battle for My loved ones. You will carry the flag of love to those who are hurting.

Forgive all those who hurt you and pray for them. Love is the answer. My way is the way of love. Love finds the way to peace. If you want peace, you must forgive and let go. You must trust totally in Me and know that I will never desert you. My hand is in everything you experience. I allow suffering for a reason. You learn mighty lessons in your trials. You are purified in your sufferings. You can gain many graces for yourselves and others when you accept all I give you with love. I give you love. I give you what you need. Let go and surrender to Me, My little, beloved ones. I never ever leave your side!

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusI Call You to Holiness

May 4, 1994 4:30a.m.

Jesus: Dear ones, I am calling you to love your brothers. I have loved you. Would you, dear ones, lay down your lives for your brothers? How are you loving this day? Are you following Christ in your actions? I am the Way, I am the Truth, I am the Life. You must constantly put the world aside and look to the Master for all your directions. I call you, My little ones, to holiness. I call you to pure hearts, hearts that are full of love and empty of hate and anger. I call you to guard your hearts and watch that they stay forever holy. You, My precious bride, I want your soul white.

Do you criticize your dear brothers? I gave the last beat of My Heart and the last drop of My blood for the soul you are displeased with. I would die for them this day. Will you not love them for Me? They are so precious to Me!

Quit sizing up your brothers. You do such unloving things in your mind. You do not even know how unloving are your thoughts. You judge your brothers by their exteriors, by their education, by their money. You do not see the beautiful creation of God the Father. He created your brothers just perfectly and He loves His creation. Who are you to criticize His creation? Love your brothers when they are hurting. It is in your loving the hurting ones that they will see the reflection of Christ in you.

Do not hold on to foolish things. One moment and your days on this earth have ended. All that remains is how you loved. Did you love God? Did you love your neighbor? Love is not selfish. It gives of itself. Its whole purpose is to draw the other closer to Jesus.

Study the crucifix. It is such a comfort! I loved you so. I died for you. I would die for you alone this very day, little ones! Look at Me dying on the cross! The way to Me is to follow Me. Be Christ-like in your ways. You must study Me to know My ways. Do not give in to yourselves. My way is love. Will you be the reflection of the love of God within you? My way is the way of the cross. They persecuted Me, they hurt Me, they tore My flesh and spit on Me. They did this to Me for My love given to all! This world is not your end. You follow My ways and you move as you should toward your goal.

I am Jesus, I am the Son of God. I love you so ardently. I died and shed My blood, My beautiful blood, for love of you. I await you this day, My little ones. I loved you so I remain with you in the Eucharist. I await, I long for you to come and share in our love. I am the tenderest of Hearts. No man can be close to you as I. I love you so. I want to dwell and live within you. I want to fill you with all My love and radiate My love to your beloved brothers. I want to shine from your souls.

Oh, little ones, take Me seriously. I am truly here, begging for you to live in My love.

You are the light that will shine in this dark world. You will light up the darkest night with My love.

The best gift you can give to this world is to busy yourself about your love affair with Me. I love you, My little ones. I love you and I want to share this love with you.

Love your brothers. Do not let Satan talk in your heads and make them wrong and you right. Love them as I have loved you. Do not look at your brothers and size them up. See them with the eyes of God, the beautiful creations of the Father.

Will you love My beloved ones for Me this day, or will you say "no" to My call? Love your brothers in darkness. They need your love. I am calling you to love them for Me this very day. They may scoff at you and persecute you, but you will plant a seed that I Myself will water and give sunlight to. Plant seeds of love. This is the most important seed you will plant, a seed of love. Watch it grow as I provide it with water and nourishment. I will shine on your brothers through you if you stay in My love. Be the light that shines on this dark world. They are crying out for the love of God. They are suffering. They need your love.

Put yourselves aside. Die to yourselves. Live only for the love of God. If the world goes one way, you stay focused on My love. Do not follow the world. Follow the risen Christ!

I love you so, little ones. I bring you new life. I fill your hearts with My love. Pray to the Holy Spirit for His gifts. Pray the Our Father. Let My mother mother you as she mothered Me. She loved you so. She suffered so for love of you. She appears to bring you back to her beloved Son. Will you answer her call? She is calling you to put God first in your life. She is calling you to love, love of God, love of one another.

Forgive your brothers. Empty your hearts of hate and anger and let go. Let all your anger go. Give Me your resentments and let Me heal your hearts. Forgiveness is the way to peace. Let go. Do not size up your brothers. Love them all. Pray for them. Unite in My love. Love is a miracle cure. Say you are sorry. Be gentle in your ways. Pray for your needs. I love you, little ones. I am with you this day.

Will you answer the call and love for Me? I love you. I am your beloved Jesus. I would die this day just for you. I love you the same as I did the day I died. Turn to Me and give Me your life. I will care for you and love you. I am your Savior. I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. Let Me live in your heart!

                Jesus gave me this message
                    November 3, 1994    

November 3, 1994

Love Your Brothers As I Have Loved You

See Note: November 4, 1994 about this message

Jesus: I am watching you at the Center. My Heart is an endless furnace of love. I am waiting for your time with Me. I love you each so dearly. Your soul craves My love, but I sit alone and you complain about one another. I love you with an open Heart that is ablaze for love of you. Each child there, I love with the tenderest Heart. I died for each person, I would suffer and die for you this day. My Father created each child His special and loving child. You are a child of God! You are so loved. My Father gave you Me for love of you. The Holy Spirit loves you so intently and wants to give you such love. Love on fire! He wants to lead you to such great love of Me and My Father.

    My beloved Mother, who suffered so for love of you, who stood by Me and shared in My Life, appears as Our Lady of Light to light your way to the love of her precious Son. She, who suffered and experienced joy with Me, she who from a young girl to an old woman knew the love of My Heart for you, appears to lead you to such love with My Sacred Heart. She wants you to come to her pure Heart and let her place you deeply in My Heart.

    My dear children, loved by My Father and My Mother, let the Spirit sanctify you, let go and be led to the most Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am as present this day as the day I died on the cross. I am present in the Eucharist in My Divinity and humanity. I am waiting for you in the tabernacle. I am waiting to give you My love. I pour Myself out to you. You go into battle with your hearts filled with My love. I watch you battle everyday this spiritual battle. I cry out to you to return to holiness. I cry out to you to realize the divine love I pour out to you. Come back to love. Make Me the very center of your life. You will not light your city with hearts that are angry. It is only by the love of God that you will light your city. Come to the burning Heart of Jesus. Come to Him for your love.

    I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I suffered so for those who neglect Me and My most precious love. I pour out to you Myself. I love you no less than the day I died.

    Open your hearts to be hearts that are pure. Rid yourself of all hate and anger toward your brothers. Come from a heart that is pure. You cannot love Me if you do not love your brother, all your brothers. Look to your brother for the Jesus that lives in them. You must love every person. I command you to love God with your whole heart, your whole mind and your whole soul. I command you to love your neighbor as yourself.

    I gave the last beat of My Heart for your brother. I live in your brother. Your Father created your brother. How can you say you love Me when you do not love your brother? I am in your brother, I love you all. I watch each of you. I love each of you and many times you hate one another. You are often divided because you are not coming to Me for your strength. You need to operate from love. Love one another. I watch you hate one another and then tell yourself you love Me. I love each person. You cannot light your city without the love of God alive in your hearts. To love God you must love your brother. To love your brother, pray to realize My love for you. Pray for grace. Pray for one another. Say the Morning Offering. You are the city of My love. Love gives, love is kind, love is compassionate, love finds its roots in the Eucharistic Christ.

    Come to Me and I will pour My Heart out to you. These are the letters of My true love I pour out to you. I died for you. Why do you not think I would send you a letter of My love for you? I love you — these words are My love letters to you! These messages are My instructions for holiness and love of one another. Love one another as you realize My immense love for you. I talk directly to you and profess My deepest love. I give you songs of My greatest love. LOVE is active, LOVE is from the heart. LOVE is rooted in a pure heart. You cannot hate one person and love Me. LOVE is kind, LOVE is seeing Me in your brother. This is the mighty medicine to light your city of love. Your children are sick and need this medicine. I beg you to circulate these messages. I talk to you every day and give you your answers, so sweetly given. My Heart is as Rita sees a heart open and burning with intense white and yellow flames. I came in the grotto to show you I am united with Mary to spread My intense love. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God, these messages need to be circulated. I am sending you these love letters daily. I beg you to listen to Me, it is in these letters you will unite in My love.

Responses from Cycle A Book

Thank you for your letter of November 13th which outlines many facets of your ministry. Thank you also for the pamphlets and publications which have been assembled for the greater glory of God and for the salvation of souls. As you know from my coat-of-arms I have an attachment to the Sacred Heart of Christ. This proves to be a good light and guide for people in any sort of ministry who have any hope of success in what they do. Our hope is from the Lord who made heaven and earth.

7. 11-15-2010 - Bishop - TX

I thank you for all the helpful information you sent me from Shepherds of Christ ministry. I am grateful for this material that has much reflection that I am sharing with other people. God's peace and many blessings upon your ministry.

Blue Book 6b

Rosary Meditations

February 22, 1995 (excerpt)

The Glorious Mysteries


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.

Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our…

October 5, 1992 - 3:30am

R. Dear Jesus, Give me Your hand to write this book for you. I am your servant. I want to be Your hand to this world. If you, Lord Jesus, would write a book, what would you say?

Jesus:   My dear children,

   Today I come to deliver a message to each of you. I want to tell you of each person's dignity, of their beauty and their self-worth. Each child is, oh, so uniquely precious to My Most Sacred Heart. Each child is full of the talents I have given to them. Each person is divinely created by God and given all these gifts to be happy and love one another.

   The problem comes when you feel you will be left out. That you will be left by another who has trodden on you and will do it again. I see you all as My most precious children. I watch your every move and know all pain and anguish in your heart. My Heart aches, you have insecure feelings about yourself. I came to this earth I died for you. I felt cold, hungry, lonely on this earth. You need not worry that no one knows the pain and anguish in your heart. God created you with such special gifts and talents. It is important for you to raise above your wound and forgive those who hurt you.

   You need only turn your will and your life over to Me and I will guide you in all your ways. I have all the Power. Many are not of My ways. The key to life is to recognize your faults, but still know you are this precious gift of My Father a gift to this world. This world is in need of your strength. Running yourself down, blaming others hurting them can cause you misery and pain. At this very moment, you are the precious creation of God!! You must operate with Me in your heart.

   You need not run yourself down. I am with you every day guiding your ways, lest your foot stumble and you lose your way. You will not wander far from your path if every day you keep bringing your focus back to Me. If you dare let Me be at the helm, if you dare to really let Me run your life, I will do with you such wonders that you yourself would be amazed. But you will know with such ease when you did these things that you did not do them alone. You will know My power, moving the mountain, My power chipping at the stone, My power working on your hardest problem and you will be set free.

   Oh yes, you will be set free and know a serenity that only comes from letting go and letting Me run your life. To you, My child, I have given all that is good. I made you My holy soldier, My warrior in a world of pain and hatred. You are the light that shines in the darkness, you are the coat to a cold child, you are the smile that warms a troubled and lonely heart. You are the comfort for everyone you meet, because My most precious Heart powers you, smiles through you, understands and loves through you.

   Love your fellows for Me. There are so many troubled hearts that need to know My love. I can love through you if you let Me, I can be their friend through you if you let Me. I am He who comforts you and you are he who comforts them. My power is endless, it never runs out, there is not a power failure EVER. In your darkest hour, My light shines in the darkness and I say to you, "Oh blessed of My Father, look at yourself with awe, you are My creation, you are indeed so precious to Me, you are My light to this world, you are My hands and My feet and most of all My Heart."

   Oh, you are My loving Heart, to those who are bowed down, to those who are lost in the darkness, you carry My smile and wear My armor in a world that is trying to tear one another down with hate and ugliness. There is gentleness, there is love, there is hope in you, if you open yourself up to Me. Be My knight to the world, wear My armor. I am your God and I will protect you from the darkness. Plug into My power, be not afraid, I go before you always and you can rest in My arms when you feel weary. You can put your head in My lap and weep, you will know, I am truly with you and you are My light to this world. I created you so special - to cast out fear in the darkness, to clothe the naked, to give hope to the oppressed, to be as I live in you and love through you and you are My smile and I touch My hurting ones through your love.

   You are he who loves this world. You must stay plugged into My power-source. This world is hungry for My love. It needs My love, I give to them through you. I am your God and I made you as a gift to the world. You are filled.

    Focus on Me and your life will be abundant and whole, joy in suffering, freedom -- but  you can take the knocks because you will know you do not go it alone, but with Me. I love you My precious child.

Blue Book V (excerpt)

October 1, 1994

God Calls Us to Love

John 13:34

I give you a new commandment: love one another; you must love one another just as I have loved you.

Matthew 7:7

Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you.

Messenger: Dear Jesus, I stand at the door of Your Heart and knock to come in. I want entry - to be lost totally and entirely in Thee. I want to be sheltered inside of Your Heart and wrapped deeply in Your infinite love.

Jesus: I call you, child, to love. Love is rooted in Me. I gave My all for love of you. I held nothing back. Love gives freely for the good of the other. Love exists to draw the other closer to God. If your relationship with your brother in anyway separates you from God, it is not love.

    Love is not haughty, love does not demand its own way, love exists to lead the other to closer union with Me. I loved you to My death. I gave to you My all! I ask you to give your all for your beloved brothers. In loving them, you are loving Me. I live in your brothers. How can you love Me who you do not see, if you do not love your brother who you see.

    I am the way. I am the truth. I am the life. I give that you will know Me and know how to love one another. Love your brothers as I have loved you. When they persecute you and holler every evil word against you, love them. This is My way - to lay down My life for My friends.

John 13:34

I give you a new commandment: love one another; you must love one another just as I have loved you.

Messenger: And to those who heeded His words, their lives were lived in peace and love and they experienced joy in their hearts, for true love brings peace and true love gives joy to the heart of the beholder. It is in loving that you receive, it is in giving that you are rendered to and it is in following the way of Christ that we are led into a life of everlasting happiness.

Jesus: I have not gone. I live with you this day. I am in your brothers. Love them as I have loved you.

Messenger: And He sent them such blessings in such abundance and  they knew a little of His unending mercy and love.


October 1, 1994

I Feed the Hungry Soul

Jesus: Another person cannot feed your hungry soul. You search, you seek. Your starved soul craves only that which I can give. When your heart is searching for love, come, My sweet dear child, into My Heart. My Mother will take you to the deepest recesses of My Heart. There you will know such comfort - in My Heart on fire for love of you this day.

    You are a child of dignity. You are precious to Me. You are the creation of the Father. I gave the last drop of My blood for you. This is love - you need grace to realize the immenseness of God's love. You are so special to God, all three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Mary loves you so much.

    You can never be satisfied on this earth. If you find the dearest mother, father, lover, friend, they will not fill you with the love your soul craves. To find Me is to seek Me. You will not be satisfied on this earth.

    You, My child, experience longing for My intense love. I love you to want Me. This is how I long for love of each precious soul. I long for them with the most tender Heart, beating and breathing with fire. I never falter. I never grow dim. I am the same, with the same burning love. Come to Me and jump into My precious Heart. I love you so much.


October 2, 1994

You Are the Father’s Creation

Jesus: I come to you in one another. Let not your hearts be hard, let your hearts be as little children, tender and pure. They do not hold grudges, they love each other, they love themselves.

    You are the creation of My beloved Father. You were created with such dignity and love. I died for you. I gave My life that you would share My life. Oh, My child, pray to the Holy Spirit to open your eyes, to let you see where you are blind, to open your hearts to the ways of God. Pray to Him to sanctify you.

    You are called to be Christ to one another. Your hearts have turned hard. Your ways are not My ways. My way is always to love. My ways are to give. My ways are to see in your brother the creation of the Father, so beautiful, so uniquely created.

    Each child is a gift from God to this world. Each child is a gift of unique love, given by the Father. You were uniquely created. You are so loved. Pray to know your specialness to God. It is in realizing His love for you that you will love your brothers.

Messenger: We are all brothers in Christ. God is our Father. We are all one.

Jesus: Join, My little ones, in such love. It is in loving that you will be at peace. Love of each other creates joy in your hearts. Pray for the grace to know and love God more. It is in this knowledge and God's love that you will be My light that shines in the darkest night.

    I am the Way, I am the Truth. I am the Life! To live in Me you must come to know and love Me. Follow My ways. My ways are the ways of truth. My ways are not always the easy way, they are the ways of love.

    If you are to be joined in your hearts, you must love every man. Every man is your brother. You must put on Christ in all your ways. Would Christ act as you are acting?

    I love you so much. It is in meditating on My love for you that you will love your brothers.

    I put you on this earth to love one another. Pray to the Spirit to know My ways. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I truly come to bring you new life. It is in Me you will have the light of life. I love you so, the Father loves you so, the Spirit wants to live in your hearts and make you alive with the love of God. Pray to Mary to lead you through her loving heart into such love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    My child, come to My ever burning Heart. I do not love you one moment and forget you the next. I am forever burning brightly for you. I never falter. I am forever on fire for love of you. If you forget Me, I never ever forget you, I love you so much.

These Messages Need to Circulate

Jesus: My dear children, I tell you to listen to Me here. I am delivering messages for all to be read and distributed. Souls need to read these messages. Your Center will grow in love of Me when you circulate these messages. I ask. You have a free will. These are My letters of love to all. They are not being read. I deliver these messages to you to deliver to My faithful ones. Please, I beg you to circulate My messages. What more do I say to you!

    This world is moving further and further from Me. I control your every breath. Do you think you are independent of He Who keeps you alive, second by second?

    You do not know how truly frail you are? You do not control the air, the water, the sun, your food. You are dependent on Me for your existence, second by second.

    I am your Most loving Savior. I speak to you here. Please listen to Me. This is an urgent request. I love you so and love each hurting soul. All the Blue Books have different messages. They speak to all of you. They need to be published. I will provide the funds to see to this. Your delays are stopping the progress of so many returning to My most intimate love. I beg you, please answer My plea.
