Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus   I love You

    April13, 1994

    Words of Jesus. Read beforethe Tabernacle.

Jesus speaks:  How, child, do I, Jesus, tell you I love you? You hold on to silly things when God is in your midst and is ardently loving you. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I am writing to each precious child this day. I am on fire for love of you. I remain in the Eucharist to be with you with My ardent love. I did not want to leave My beloved ones at the Last Supper. I love you so, My dear and ardently loved children. I remain with you this day in the Blessed Sacrament, the same Jesus Who died a brutal death on the Cross.
    Do you know I am truly present there? Do you know that God waits every day for you in the tabernacle? Do you comprehend even a minute amount of My love? You will never know of how I love you on earth.
    I, Jesus, truly the Son of God, came to earth a man and suffered a brutal death for love of you. I love you so much! I remain with you this day. I long for your love. I want you to come and be with Me in front of the tabernacle. I wait, I yearn for you to come and whisper your love to Me. I am a person and I love you this day, with such an ardent on-fire love! No human could ever compare a speck to My love for you.
    I wait, little ones, in the tabernacle. I wait for you to come and receive Me in Communion. I want you to want Me so much you cannot wait to come and receive Me. I want to be the love, the center of your life!
    I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am writing to you this day. I want to possess your very soul and live in you. I have all you need, sweet ones. Oh, you are so blind! I long for your union with Me. I wrote the book of love. I instituted it, yet you go to the world for your love and do not even come to Me! Oh, I love you, little ones. Little ones, beloved of the Father, loved by the Holy Spirit, mothered by My very own mother! What more can I say? The rest is up to you!
    I give you your will with such love and I want your love freely given. I am God. What do you think you could ever need that I do not give you? I am the Savior of this world. I am Jesus, the Son of God. I am waiting for you. I am longing for you. I am yearning for you. I am God. I have all you ever will need!
    Surrender this life to Me. Pray My Prayer for Union with Me. I want to possess your soul and operate from your very being. I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am Who am. I died and rose on the third day.
    Harken to My call, harken to My pleading. Spend your days in love with Me. Nothing matters unless it is rooted in Me and rooted in My love. I am the Son of God. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I love you with the tenderest love. I am waiting this day for just you, My beloved one. Come to Me for I am the tenderest of all hearts. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

To The Reader

Jesus wants to share His love with you. He comes in these letters to tell you how you can be in intimate union with Him.
All of us possess everything we need to have an intimate union with Him. He has bee

n giving me messages since October of 1991. For at least a year I sat in front of the tabernacle and begged him to talk to me. I wanted words. I prayed to the Holy Spirit and begged and begged Him to baptize me. After a long and seemingly endless search, trying to hear God, He told me to "feed the hungry." For six weeks this was all I heard. I thought maybe I wasn't feeding my children well or eating well enough myself. What a long wait for three words! At long last one day, as I was writing to Jesus, I received a letter back. He told me, "I am Jesus, Son of the Living God." I did not want to write this but it kept coming--and so did many other messages. I knew nothing of anyone getting messages. I wrote them, reluctantly, and hid my notebooks. The letters kept coming, many during the night. I would be awakened, then given long letters which I felt compelled to get up and write down. I read these letters privately and my life began to change. I felt a new life within me.

He taught me of His fervent love and how truly present He was. He taught me how precious I was to Him. Over and over again He would call me His precious child and tell me how He loved me, how He clothed me with dignity and honor. He told me over and over how He was right by my side always. He is teaching me to give up all fear and to trust in Him. He is teaching me to let go of myself and let Him run my life. I am trying every day to do His will.
He is also telling you in your heart all you need to know. He has all the answers for you there in your heart. You must be silent and go to Him so you can hear His words for you.
Sit in front of the tabernacle and be with Him. Do not pray prayers. Sit and be open and just be with Him. Read these letters there. These are Jesus' love letters to you. Sit in front of the tabernacle and let Him talk to you. Sit silent awhile. Read these letters part of the time. Open any page and He will talk to you. Do not read this like a book, cover to cover. Just open to a page and read that page. That is the way He speaks to you. -RR

I Accept Myself - I Am The Father’s Creation

Messenger: Dear Father, I do not know You as well as I want, but I love You so.

You are one with Jesus. He is one with You. I love Jesus so much, Father. I come to You through Jesus to love You. I love You so because I love Jesus so. I know how You love me because You created me and gave Your only Son that I might get to heaven.

Oh, Father, to pray Your "Our Father" is such a delight!

"Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven."

(Smelling strong scent of flowers - none around.)

Oh, Father, I love You so much.

"Give us this day, our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us." Amen.

Father, Father, Your love is so immense! You created this whole world and all that is in it. Holy Spirit, help me now to know the Father more. Jesus, help me to love Your Father more. Mary, help me to love the Father more. I want to be close to You, my Father. I love You, my beautiful Father, so very much. My Father, my Father, my beautiful Father!

If I am loving the Father, I am loving Jesus, so to love the Father is to love Jesus because He is one with the Father.

When I pray to the Father, I feel more the immenseness of God. How truly great He is - limitless! I feel warm and good in my chest to realize I have a Father Who loves me so much. I have a loving Father and I love Him so. Such warmth in my chest for my Father!

I praise You, Father. I praise You, Son. I praise You, Holy Spirit. Such fullness in my heart to love God, all three Divine Persons. What joy I feel to be united to God through the Immaculate Heart of my loving Mother. Oh, Mother, I love you. Such honor and praise to my God and love given to all three Persons and to you, my Mother, and St. Joseph.

I can accept myself now, knowing I am the creation of my beautiful Father. All that I am was created by Him. My feet are as He designed them, my nose is perfect, since He made me. I am His creation.

So, too, is my brother, His creation. My brother is perfectly designed by my Father. We are truly brothers, created by the Father, we are brothers through Jesus.

Oh, God, what a work of love to create such things for us. We are Your beloved sons and daughters, created by the hands of our loving Father. Such love poured out to us!

My Father is your Father. We are brothers in Him. Oh, Jesus, I love You so. Thank You for leading me to Your Father and my Father. We are brothers in Christ.

"My God, my God, why have You forsaken Me?" To His death on the cross, He loved us all, our Brother Christ. This is how He asks us to love our brothers, that we would lay down our lives for them. He loved us to His death. Can we do any less for our brothers? Christ is our Brother. God the Father is our Father. Jesus is the Son of God and we are heirs to the Kingdom through the salvation achieved for us by Jesus.

Jesus speaks: Come, oh come, My chosen ones. Do you see the love of your Father to give His only Son for you? Do you see the love of the Son to die for you? Oh, how you are loved, My little chosen ones! Come to Me and experience such love. I Am Who Am, I am God. I come to you in the Eucharist and you do not adequately know the true treasure you possess. Oh, little ones, come to God and be fed. I am the one, true God, come down from the Father. I come to you, chosen ones, in the Eucharist. I am He Whose bootstraps you are unworthy to tie and you run away with such ignorance. Spread My love, read and publish this letter, for I am God and I come to you to love you and be loved by you. Do not cast Me off. I am God, My Heart cries out for your love. Love Me through My beautiful Mother. Our love is your answer to your hurting souls. Do not go to this world, come to the God Who loves you. Receive Me in Holy Communion and where I am, My Father and the Holy Spirit are. Mary is with you also.

Such foolish ones, to ignore such treasure given freely to you! Oh, you blind ones! Pray to the Spirit to open your eyes to what you possess. You are so blind, My children. It is here you find your strength. Come to Us for the love of God, one in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Come and be united in your hearts to God and your loving Mother. Your peace is found in union with Jesus. Consecrate your lives to our Hearts. Consecrate your hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Such love you will find here. My little ones - such love to fill you! Oh, I love you and long for your love, My beautiful children.

I am your loving Jesus.

The Holy Spirit

Messenger: Hot air balloons filled with air set afloat by fire. We are filled up by His Spirit and set afloat by the fire of His love. We become weightless and float in the sky above. We are floating, letting His Spirit take us about. We are united with the heavenly powers. It is the power of His mighty love.

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love. Send forth Thy Spirit and Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

As I die to my false self, God lives more in me. Help me to die to myself. You, Lord, love my brothers, You gave the last drop of Your Blood, the last beat of Your Heart for them. The more I die to self, the more the God Who loves my brothers lives in me and He ardently loves my brother.

The more I think of myself, the less I love my brothers. As the false self diminishes, the God Who is united to me operates in me more and more.

Help me to love as You love. As I surrender to You, I become in greater union with You and it is You Who operates in me more and more. You loved my brothers to Your death. You love my brothers, all my brothers this very day. You would die for each brother this day. It is God Who loves through us that loves our brothers with His love. It is He Who operates my very being.

We die to the false self, we increasingly receive His living water. We remain alive in Him. He fills us to the brim, we are vibrant in Him. He is Life. We are made anew, like the clean water. We are filled with clean, living water. We operate with vibrancy, force and spirit.

Jesus speaks: I came to this earth out of such love for you, My beloved ones. I was born a mere human and I came to love you and they persecuted Me. Those whom I loved, they persecuted Me! They tore My flesh. They numbered all My bones. They were My beloved ones. How it hurts to love and be rejected and persecuted by those you love.

I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I know the pain of torture. No matter what they do to you, they did it to Me.

To My death I suffered for intense love of you.

When they persecute you and holler every slanderous thing against you, pray to your heavenly Father for strength to deal with your attackers. It is in your sufferings you are drawn closer to Me.

  

  

July 4, 1994

The Father, Son And Holy Spirit And Mary Love You

Jesus speaks: I am the Lord, thy God, I am Jesus, Son of God. I came that you might have life and have it abundantly. I will hold your hand and be forever with you.

My Mother is your very own Mother. She loves you and Mothers you as she Mothered Me.

My Father is your very own Father. He created you and loves you so much He sent His only Son to be a living Sacrifice so you might partake in His life.

I give Myself to you totally in the Eucharist, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. I wait for you to come to the tabernacle, I love you so.

The Spirit loves you so and in Him you have the life you need to be united to God. Pray to Him for this life, beg Him for the gifts whereby you will grow in your love and union with God.

This is My Commandment to you: Love God above all things and love your neighbor as yourself.

Be united to the one, true God, for He is truly present and lives in your hearts.

Live Our Lives In The Rosary. Experience Our Sufferings.

Mary speaks: My anguish I felt to watch them persecute my beloved Jesus! He Whom I loved so dearly, my own, very own Child and they stripped Him, beat Him, hated Him, tore His tender beautiful flesh, everything that they did,...

This was my beloved Son. My heart was torn in my chest, my sorrow so great! No yelling or other human expressions could capture the torments of my heart.

My little Baby, to watch such brutality DONE to my precious Child.

Do you know the torments of the heart?

Do you know the pain to behold such vileness done to your own child?

Pain in the heart, I know, I know His love for you, my dear children. I know what He suffered for you. Put yourself there during the Passion. Meditate on His suffering for love of you. Meditate on His love. This is love, to suffer as He did for you. It is so simple, He loved you to His very own death. This is what He would give for you this very day, my little ones. Go to Him and be alone with Him. Turn to Him, love Him. He waits for your love. Praise this good God Who loves you so much to shed His very own Blood for you. Oh children, be present to Him. Live His life, pray the rosary, meditate on His sufferings for you. This will draw you close to Our Hearts. Live Our lives in the rosary. Experience Our sufferings.

Love one another, do not give in to Satan. You cannot accomplish my Son’s tasks if you do not put your differences aside. You must love each other.

Go to Him in the Eucharist. Give your whole hearts to Him. Consecrate yourselves to Us. We will be ever with you, guiding your every step. I am the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I love you as the most loving Mother. Come and find refuge in Our Hearts. We will protect you from the scorching sun. We will hold tight to you and you will never lose your peace.

Jesus speaks: Oh My child, peace I give to you, not as the world gives you peace, but as only I can give you peace. Come and let Me hold you in My Heart, deeply placed there by My loving Mother. You will find your joy inside of My Heart.

I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I want to be united to you, My little babies. Become as the baby at the breast, total submission, total trust, total yielding to Our ways. Yield to Me. My time is perfect. My ways are set. Yield to Me and I will handle your cares. I love you My sweet ones. Yield. Pray constantly, consecrate yourselves to My Heart and My Mother’s heart.

Let go! Surrender to Me. Let go and come to My Heart. You have been experiencing such turmoil, let go and let Me bring it to you. I have not forgotten you. You need peace. Do not be worried, I will tend to My letters, My sweet one. I want them published. I want the second Blue Book out. Surrender to Me.

  I am God. I will handle My work. You love Me. Read My letters and obey them. Obey them. You know your job.  Dealing with others is My job. Be at peace and let Me work around you. I love you so. I thank you for this work. Feel joy. My joy I give to you. Let Me work, no matter how hard it is. Stay off the phone, be with your children.

  My job is easy, My burden light. Let go now and be at peace. Be my spouse. I miss your attentiveness to Me. Let go of all this foolishness. Let Me work. I am the Lord, your God. I will do My work. I am God. I have spoken.

Be united to the one, true God, for He is truly present and lives in your hearts.

(Blue Book August 31st, I Died in Peace)

How the Rosary Meditations Began at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center

The message below is from June 16, 1994. Jesus told me to pray the rosary everyday with my children at the Center. When I received this message, there appeared little sparkling lights on my notebook, lights that are like the lights I saw surrounding Mary. I am including this message of June 16, 1994 at 3:15 a.m.

Jesus speaks: Soon your burden will be lifted and you will feel some relief. You must be in constant prayer. Being with your children is a prayer for you. Come to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. You feel the Real Presence there. I will give you miracles there. Pray in the chapel with your children. They will become closer to Me through prayer as you spend time praying with them. You need simplicity in your life. Live only for love of Me.

Note: Little white lights on my notebook.
 

An Explanation of What Is to Follow

Jesus and Mary give me little insights into the Father's plan, little pieces of the puzzle. They do not tell everything that will happen. In order to understand the plan, we need to study all the messages and see how the Father's plan is unfolding. We are all threads of the great tapestry, all little puzzle pieces of the big picture, all so important to His plan.

We are all being called to spread His love to this world. Each soul is so important to His plan. I see now many events as they unfold. I see where Jesus and Mary told me many things and I at the time did not understand. I was told in June that I would see as never before.

On July 4, 1994 I prayed with the children in front of the Our Lady of Grace statue in the sanctuary. On July 5, I recorded our experiences. The statue of Mary continued to glow and come alive. Jesus and Mary told Fr. Carter to pray with the children and me on July 10.

I would see Mary glow. Several weeks later I realized she was appearing in the statue as "Our Lady of Light." She then began to say she was appearing as "Our Lady of Light." She would show me a parade of faces, her clothes would all turn glistening white, and her attire would change. She would appear as a parade of different ladies. Her veils and head coverings would change. She has appeared as many different Marys. Her emotions have varied, her age has varied and her clothing has varied. She has shown me her life in the rosary. In the rosary, we meditate on the lives of Jesus and Mary, from Their young lives to Their older lives, from Their sorrows to Their joys. She takes on many roles as our mother, her mantle forever covering and protecting us.
 

 

  

October 29, 2005

Messenger:              In my job as God has given to me, I have
                            been asked to write messages that lead to oneness.
                            All of us working together as God wills us to, to
                            promote His Kingdom.

                                Children may suffer abuses from a very early
                            age, alcoholism, control, not enough love,
                            punishments that are unwarranted for basic
                            needs — rules, unspoken rules from parents,
                            teachers, love relationships that are drilled
                            into another person, because of their rules
                            and how they want things.

                                In relationships what is considered normal
                            to you may not be normal to someone else as
                            they violate other's boundaries and move ahead
                            doing what they want.

                                The basic crossing the lines in abnormal
                            relationships is foreign to me another with
                            some type of a disorder may do it easily.

                                There are basic ways we are to relate to
                            live according to God's will, this is our
                            measuring stick, what is God's will.

                                I have watched people do awful things,
                            act like they didn't do it. Say it was a
                            good thing and blame any events that
                            occurred that were not good on an innocent
                            other. The whole time being empowered more
                            and more to think of themselves as having
                            their affairs in order.

                                An abuser singles out a scapegoat, a
                            whipping boy and can show the world how
                            great they are and criticize and hurt this
                            one other person they project all their hatred
                            on.

                                A murderer may see themselves as kind
                            and gentle and sweet, caring for others,
                            in truth he lies to himself about how
                            he really is.

                                Some people will try to get away with
                            whatever they can to get what they want
                            for themselves.

                                God has called religious in the Church.
                            A person called to be a religious should love
                            their vocation and live, especially, as the
                            Spouse of Christ.

                                When asked what do you do, they are
                            proud to say, I am a priest, a sister,
                            a brother, one who lives, many times,
                            in a community under a superior serving
                            the Church in a special way.

                                When reading the lives of the saints
                            it is noteworthy to see how very many
                            were religious and how they struggled
                            to live in obedience to their superiors,
                            but they obeyed.

                                A person with some problems in
                            relationships may never be able to engage
                            in healthy relationships with
                            others without changing their heart and
                            only we can change our own heart.

                                In teaching a college class on relationships
                            I would begin the class by asking — what
                            do you want in a significant-other —

                                They would always say
                                    (1) truthfulness
                                    (2) reliability
                                    (3) kindness

                                and many other attributes which to me
                                described Jesus —

                            When asked what they did not like
                                (1) lying
                                (2) not meeting on time
                                (3) argumentation
                                (4) abuse
                                (5) lack of kindness ——

                            God calls religious.

                                If a religious entered because they
                            were unsuccessful in every other intimate
                            relationship, they never dated, they never
                            had a significant relationship with another —
                            all these things will come to the floor
                            when dealing with superiors and
                            others in communities.

                                A person that cannot live in peace with
                            others is not a good candidate for
                            community life and promoting oneness.

                                People who live in a community
                            should engage in meals together
                            at some times.

                                A person overlooking others in the
                            house, like furniture being in the living
                            room, or a person creating tension
                            with others in the house so they can
                            live out their single-spinster ways
                            is not being a leader and acting
                            like Jesus. How do you want the
                            community of the future to be formed?

                                A man was called to see the big picture,
                            but when called to the leadership
                            position he made a pair of glasses-
                            like, he put walls on the side so he
                            could see only what he wanted. Soon
                            the person calling him to run the
                            bigger country said, you see nothing
                            but your own limited path — you
                            live in a box, you focus on others over
                            you, like a rubber band

Messenger:         you work on those who are over you.

                                A person called to be a communicator
                            that hurts everyone who calls or comes
                            will soon have to close the door like
                            the dealership that has car salesmen that
                            run the people away.

                                Loving begins at home. A person
                            that sees themselves having a deep
                            relationship with Jesus, but fails to
                            give love to those he lives with by
                            honest kindness is not living as
                            Christ intends. A person that walks
                            around all day in their own little
                            world saying, "I am holy", "I talk to
                            Jesus all day", but fails to obey
                            superiors, and cannot live with
                            anyone else without creating tension
                            has a serious spiritual problem.

                                Ask yourself, as a candidate for
                            the religious life, is the only person
                            you ever got along with yourself —
                            or those you controlled or tried to
                            control.

                                A person engaging in sexual encounters
                            we may think are very abnormal —
                            rationalizes why they are okay. They have
                            had years going against the norm —
                            rationalizing why what they do is
                            okay and they are in the habit of
                            telling themselves anything is okay
                            if they want to do it. To me it
                            is lying.

                                A person that is asked by a superior
                            to do something and they do something
                            else and tell you it is God's will
                            because it all worked so good — has
                                (1) been disobedient
                                (2) not recognized their error
                                (3) told you what they did was right —
                                     they lied to themselves and
                                     lied to you to do what they
                                     wanted

                            Then they have the confronting stage
                                with the superior where they
                                tell them what happened and
                                tell them it was right — after they
                                disobeyed.

                                People in the habit of arguing
                            to justify all their behavior as
                            right may be regularly seduced
                            by satan who is fooling them
                            about truth.

                                Satan comes and masks the
                            truth for the "fallacious reasoner."
                            The person is empowered when they
                            are disobedient toward the superior —
                            they live in a world of their own
                            making — if put in a community —
                            they quickly begin tension with
                            some individual to get space and
                            take the focus off of them. They
                            may be in the habit of always having
                            a tense problem going on they are
                            working on — they have lived this way —
                            not experiencing peace and harmony
                            in a setting with others EVER —
                            what is normal to them with others
                            is to create tension and they are
                            in control of this tension (the
                            abuser). It may come from their
                            beginning years of life in an abusive
                            or alcoholic home where there
                            was — no peace — unpredictability
                            around the abuser or alcoholic
                            there was not recognition of people's
                            rights and specialness and they may
                            not have had the normal love that
                            needs to be given to a child. As
                            a child the non-alcoholic other
                            (mother or father) the non-abuser
                            was always focused on surviving
                            the abuser or alcoholic themselves —
                            so little recognition was given to
                            the child. They lived in a war-zone —
                            an unhappy, disharmonious, tense
                            home.

                                So today tension and having a
                            tight rubber-band around them
                            and another hooked to them is
                            normal, but they are now the ones
                            controlling the unpredictability
                            and tension —

                                How can people like these live in
                            communities? They don't, they cause
                            this disharmony because it is
                            normal to them with them controlling.
                            Married couples can exist in dysfunction
                            especially if one uses some means
                            of force, verbal abuse, physical
                            abuse, monetary abuse to control
                            the situation which is dysfunctional
                            and "normal" to them.

                                The bottom line is one dysfunctional
                            person isn't going to get any help or
                            change — they may crawl in their
                            parents clothes and inflict innocent
                            others in their bizarre ways. They
                            do not intend to change. They think
                            this is "normal". People living in
                            angry houses as children can
                            abuse others and throw things
                            etc. — If they connect their dysfunction
                            with religion — they can become
                            self-righteous and telling themselves
                            "God is behind me" — "I know I am
                            right". Being hot-tempered, controlling
                            others, not working on oneself
                            and projecting problems on
                            others can become a major
                            problem.

                                Relationships are simply —
                            Being like Jesus:

                                (1) Loving God
                                (2) Loving one another
                                (3) Loving oneself —

                            In the Blue Books —

                                Jesus tells us of His undaunted
                                    love, but reading messages
                                    from Jesus are not given
                                    so I can have my quiet
                                    love affair with Jesus
                                    and not get along
                                    with anybody else.

                            God intends us to walk hand-in-
                                hand in love.
                                A spinster who gets worse
                                in their ways in living
                                in a community is not
                                growing in the ways of Jesus.

                            I want to tell you a story — I went
                                to Burger King once and two
                                people were in competition
                                at the window — trying to
                                prove who was better — they
                                gave little care for the
                                customers and really they
                                were obnoxious — they were
                                nasty to each other, nasty to
                                the customer
                                and they only
                                wanted to prove they were
                                better than the other —

                            I call this filling —

                                God gives us a job to love and serve
                                    Him and build His Kingdom —

                            When someone has a bag of garbage
                                (relationship problems, lacking
                                relationship skills, authority
                                problems)

                            As soon as they have a job to
                                do — the bag opens and their
                                top priority becomes working out
                                relationship problems. They
                                are not focused on the job to
                                promote God's Kingdom —
                                they can't even get close to
                                someone else and do productive
                                work.

                            A person who has not had jobs
                                for pay and not had intimate
                                relationships may really
                                be a hard person to deal
                                with if they only know
                                dysfunctional relationships
                                from childhood or lived by themselves.

                                A person can try to live by themselves,
                            pray by themselves and ignore much
                            contact with others — or fly in and
                            out — spreading their talents and
                            showing their self-assurance,
                            acting like a leader while they
                            disobey those over them —

                                All this can be "off" —
                                There is one road —
                                The road that is God's will —
                                    in love.

                                Everything else is a waste of
                                    time.

                                A person who cannot obey
                                    authority — should not
                                    be in a community.

                                Priests must be under their
                                    bishops.

                                Teachers under the President
                                    etc.

                            A person that skirts jobs —
                            A person that wants only to be their
                                own boss — may have a
                                serious problem.

                            God is over us.

     

Genesis Chapter 3

   Now, the snake was the most subtle of all the wild animals that Yahweh God had made. It asked the woman, ‘Did God really say you were not to eat from any of the trees in the garden?’ The woman answered the snake, ‘We may eat the fruit of the trees in the garden. But of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden God said, "You must not eat it, nor touch it, under pain of death." ’ Then the snake said to the woman, ‘No! You will not die! God knows in fact that the day you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods, knowing good from evil.’ The woman saw that the tree was good to eat and pleasing to the eye, and that it was enticing for the wisdom that it could give. So she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened and they realised that they were naked. So they sewed fig–leaves together to make themselves loin–cloths.

   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?’ The man replied, ‘It was the woman you put with me; she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.’ Then Yahweh God said to the woman, ‘Why did you do that?’ The woman replied, ‘The snake tempted me and I ate.’

   Then Yahweh God said to the snake, ‘Because you have done this,

    Accursed be you of
    all animals wild and tame!
    On your belly you will go
    and on dust you will feed
    as long as you live.
    I shall put enmity
    between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and hers;
    it will bruise your head
    and you will strike its heel.’

     To the woman he said:

     I shall give you intense pain
        in childbearing,
     you will give birth to your children
        in pain.
     Your yearning will be for your husband,
      and he will dominate you.

   To the man he said, ‘Because you listened to the voice of your wife and ate from the tree of which I had forbidden you to eat,

     Accursed be the soil because of you!
     Painfully will you get your food from it
     as long as you live.
   It will yield you brambles and thistles,
     as you eat the produce of the land.
   By the sweat of your face
     will you earn your food,
     until you return to the ground,
     as you were taken from it.
     For dust you are
     and to dust you shall return.’

   The man named his wife ‘Eve’ because she was the mother of all those who live. Yahweh God made tunics of skins for the man and his wife and clothed them. Then Yahweh God said, ‘Now that the man has become like one of us in knowing good from evil, he must not be allowed to reach out his hand and pick from the tree of life too, and eat and live for ever!’ So Yahweh God expelled him from the garden of Eden, to till the soil from which he had been taken. He banished the man, and in front of the garden of Eden he posted the great winged creatures and the fiery flashing sword, to guard the way to the tree of life.

  

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

  

Chapter 8
 
The Christian Encounters Others and the World
 

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.

Messenger:         Relationship is our life here
                                below — it is preparation
                                for heaven.

                            Not being able to do work in
                                a room with others without
                                having problems should
                                be a RED - FLAG

                                YOU got problems.

                            A person who is able to work
                                with others to do work —
                                without problems can do
                                God's work in love.

                                Some people couldn't sit
                            in a mailing next to someone.

                                Some people cannot exist
                            in any community.

                                A nun was sent in a community
                            to Colorado, to Sidney, Ohio to
                            Florida, every place she went
                            she made tension and threw off
                            the balance. One person can
                            throw off normal balance.

                            In communities — one is not made a
                            scapegoat and others go around in
                            anger and talk behind their backs —
                            this comes from sick dysfunctional
                            homes where it may have occurred.
                            If this is "normal" to you — you
                            are probably dysfunctional stemming from
                            training in a dysfunctional home.

                                In the alcoholic home there
                            is always the "scapegoat", the
                            hero etc. —

                                In a good healthy normal home
                            all live in oneness and love — all
                            have a chance to grow in love.

                                Making someone a
                                    "scapegoat" is very
                                    unholy.

                                Jesus shows us what they did to
                                    Him —

                            A person disobeying — seeing themselves
                                as a persecuted person and
                                not obeying — going to
                                Jesus —
                                saying they have mystical
                                experiences is not
                                obeying to start with.

                            God intends us to obey our
                                superiors —
                                people who disobey —
                                can lie and lie to themselves
                                about the truth.

                            In the end we ask — can we
                                continue to live with a
                                person in the community —
                                that causes tension —
                                makes themselves the leader —
                                and gets what can be false
                                messages — telling themselves
                                God's will for them is doing
                                what they want.

                            A person that always has to work
                                out issues — has the issues —
                                We have work to do.
 

From Jesus:

                  On this Halloween,
                  the world is full
                      of goblins and
                      witches.

                  I beg you in
                      China and the Movement to
                      pray.
