October 3, 2001 message continues

Messenger:         I love to pray my rosary.
                            We are contemplatives in action.
                            We want our hearts to be always united to Him as our
                                Divine Bridegroom.



October 3, 2001 message continues

Messenger:         I love to meditate on the Sorrowful Mysteries of
                                the rosary. It is there I can unite so deeply
                                in His suffering in all the struggles
                                of trying to do His work. It is there I
                                can meditate on the mysteries and see how
                                much He loved me.
                                He gave His life for me.
                                It is there I see how much He loved His
                                    precious souls.
                                How truly He suffered for our sins.
                                How truly He suffered in the garden.



October 3, 2001 message continues

Messenger:         It is there He suffered so for the souls He loved
                                so much that would be lost forever to the
                                eternal fires of hell despite His suffering
                                and His death.

                            I can get so deep into the mysteries.
                            I love Him so much, I love to meditate on His
                                life, death and resurrection.
                            I love to meditate on the things about
                                my Divine Bridegroom.

                            He, Jesus, is our true love.
                            He loves us so much He gave His life for us.
                            He became a man.
                            He took on human flesh.
                            The Divine God became a man for me.
                            What an awesome thought.
                            Ponder this.
                            The Son of God became a man, suffered
                                and died for my sins and the sins
                                of the world so that we could be
                                with Him for all eternity in heaven.



October 3, 2001 message continues

Messenger:         I love to meditate on all the mysteries of the
                                rosary really.
                            I say to myself "goody, goody, I get to pray
                                my rosary now"



October 3, 2001 message continues

Messenger:         If I am busy, I silently pray it when I
                            I am always focused on His love for me
                                and my desire to pray the rosary
                                all through the day.

                            Sometimes I cry and feel frustrated because
                                I want the world to be the
                                way He wants it to be.

                            I want to pray always for the Reign of His
                                Sacred Heart in all Hearts and the
                                triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart.

                            We should pray for this at every Mass as
                                Father Carter did and pray all through the

                            We want the Sacred Heart to be the King and
                                Center of all Hearts on the earth,
                                think of that.

                            I remember when Jesus told me this at 3:00.



December 18, 2000, 3:00 a.m. Jesus said:

Would you wish to deprive Me of giving a holy soul their reward?

That is what they lived for, that some day they would be with Me in heaven.

Excerpt from July 21, 2001 message

Messenger: I saw Father Carter dressed in white and I saw
                        how much I have to struggle here below
                        doing God's work and I wanted 
                        Fr. Carter to be in heaven.



October 3, 2001 message continues

Messenger:         I want the deepest union with God.
                            I want to see the face of God.
                            I want the beatific vision.

                             I want to be wrapped in the embrace of
                                God's love for all eternity.

                             I want to be possessed by God.

                            Oh the gift that waits those who love and serve
                                the Lord. The gift of eternal life to be so
                                one in Him, to be wrapped
                                in the embrace of the Almighty
                                God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit for all eternity.

                            Oh I do love Him so much.

                            Today when I went to communion, I just wanted
                                these moments to never end.

Use Your Talents

God's Blue Book I Cover

October 3, 1993 Chicago Marian Conference 11:30a.m.

Jesus speaks: I am your Savior, Son of the Living God. I come to you that you might have life, not as the world gives you life, but My life which is life eternal. I carved you from My special carving and made you little less than an angel. I love you and cherish all the moments when you, My special child, come to sit with Me. I wait here and I hope you will choose to come, but I never force you. Your will is totally free and I give it to you because of My love and the will of the Father. I inform you in numerous ways. You do not have to guess and wonder. Come be with Me in this silence and all you need to know will be told to you. Your life is unfolding as a beautiful rose. Each petal falls and you plant My odors about as I so desire. I make your life full and sure as you trust in Me. No need for worrying, My little flower. My ways give you freedom if you listen to your heart. I am a personal God and you know Me as giving you fullness and life. You know there is some magnetism to Me and the way you crave to be part of Me. This is the work of the one, true God Who created you with a thirst that can only be quenched by Me. All roads that lead to Me give you fullness, worth, peace and joy, not as the world thinks, but as you yourself know true peace and joy. When I really touch you, you do not remain the same. I shed My Blood for you that you will have the life only I can give. What friend in this world would die for you? You, My child, were worth My dying for. I came that you will have life eternal and the gift I give is My Precious Blood for your sins. Come to Me in trouble and when you are bowed down. Come to Me in joy. Come to Me every day that you live and I will give you all you need. Seek to know Me more and more. Knowledge of Me, being with Me, are the only way to perfect peace. They lead to eternal life.

    I have a divine plan for you. I created you with special gifts and talents to be used to do My work. They are not for your own self-promotion. You, My child, are nothing except as I created you. Why try to promote yourself? It is none of your own doing. I gave you the talents you are using. You had nothing to do with it. These talents were given to you to do My work. To use these talents to make yourself feel better than your brother is indeed a sin. You must realize they are loaned to you to work for Me. As you give someone a car, or loan them a place to stay, I loan you your talents to use to work for Me. If you do not work for Me and use them to make yourself better than your brother, you are offending Me. Likewise, if I give you talents and you do not use them because you think you are not as good as your brother, you are not being thankful to Me for My gifts to you. You are not using My gifts and that offends Me greatly. Each person was created by Me to do My work. Each person has all he needs to do My work. To be envious of others is fruitless. They have their job. You have yours. You are not supposed to do their work. That is why you were not given their talents.

    Do your own work. Don't be envious of your brothers. Don't hide your talents. You did not earn them. I gave you your talents. You must sing because I will it. Others must do as I will them to do. It displeases Me to give you a gift and watch you hide it and make light of it. I give the gift. You must use all your gifts. They were given to you to do My work. Your brother has his gifts. Be grateful for your brother and he should be for you. You are all chosen by Me for a special mission. You know what to do. It feels right. I plant little seeds in your heart and all you do that is for you in the end feels right. You are not to be doing your brother's work or he yours. Talk to Me that you might know just what your work is and do it.

    Do not hide your talents. Praise your God Who gave you these talents. Embrace and use them. This is not pride. This is My plan. I love you. I give to each of you, My precious children, as a mother who buys special Christmas gifts for each child. To buy gifts all the same for all your children is not to respect their specialness, their individuality.

    Oh, I love you, little ones, so much. Please come to Me. I am so good and I wait to be with you and share My love with you. Come now. This is your top priority. All else will work when you come to Me first. I love you. You are My chosen children. Come and be filled and I make your loads light and I fill you with the Spirit of Salvation.

    All roads that lead to Me are the right roads. Praise Me for I am good and I love you, little dear ones.
