                R. Compassion —

                    Seeing through the eyes of God —
                Seeing every person with love — for
                God so loved the world He sent His
                only begotten Son into the world —
                The Divine Dresser of the Fields sent
                His Son as a ransom for us sinners —
                God is love and He has overwhelmingly
                loved us — He created us in His image
                and likeness, He has gifted us with
                talents to help build His Kingdom —
                His rule of love is the rule —

                    God wants us to love each other —
                The burden becomes lighter when
                all who were called are doing their
                part. There must be order — God
                is all powerful and power comes
                from Him as we stay connected
                to the vine —

                    A withered branch - withers
                and dies. Jesus is the vine — we
                are the branches — God is watching
                our performance as we act on this
                stage of life — He wants us to open
                to Him and let Him possess our soul —
                If one is closed, locked shut to
                others — they will be closed to God —
                What we do to others we do to Christ —
                We may not see Jesus our Divine
                Bridegroom, but He has written
                all these personal love letters in
                God's Blue Book so we know Him
                and His burning love on fire for
                us — NOW, NOW, NOW —

                    Oh Jesus You are so good to us
                let us sing of Your love and Your
                great works, let us adore You
                and sing Your praises

                Sing: Glory Be     

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Jonah 1:1 - 2:1, 11  

The word of Yahweh was addressed to Jonah son of Amittai: ‘Up!’ he said, ‘Go to Nineveh, the great city, and proclaim to them that their wickedness has forced itself upon me.’ Jonah set about running away from Yahweh, and going to Tarshish. He went down to Jaffa and found a ship bound for Tarshish; he paid his fare and boarded it, to go with them to Tarshish, to get away from Yahweh. But Yahweh threw a hurricane at the sea, and there was such a great storm at sea that the ship threatened to break up. The sailors took fright, and each of them called on his own god, and to lighten the ship they threw the cargo overboard. Jonah, however, had gone below, had lain down in the hold and was fast asleep, when the boatswain went up to him and said, ‘What do you mean by sleeping? Get up! Call on your god! Perhaps he will spare us a thought and not leave us to die.’ Then they said to each other, ‘Come on, let us draw lots to find out who is to blame for bringing us this bad luck.’ So they cast lots, and the lot pointed to Jonah. Then they said to him, ‘Tell us, what is your business? Where do you come from? What is your country? What is your nationality?’ He replied, ‘I am a Hebrew, and I worship Yahweh, God of Heaven, who made both sea and dry land.’ The sailors were seized with terror at this and said, ‘Why ever did you do this?’ since they knew that he was trying to escape from Yahweh, because he had told them so. They then said, ‘What are we to do with you, to make the sea calm down for us?’ For the sea was growing rougher and rougher. He replied, ‘Take me and throw me into the sea, and then it will calm down for you. I know it is my fault that this great storm has struck you.’ The sailors rowed hard in an effort to reach the shore, but in vain, since the sea was growing rougher and rougher. So at last they called on Yahweh and said, ‘O, Yahweh, do not let us perish for the sake of this man’s life, and do not hold us responsible for causing an innocent man’s death; for you, Yahweh, have acted as you saw fit.’ And taking hold of Jonah they threw him into the sea; and the sea stopped raging. At this, the men were seized with dread of Yahweh; they offered a sacrifice to Yahweh and made vows to him.

Now Yahweh ordained that a great fish should swallow Jonah; and Jonah remained in the belly of the fish for three days and three nights.

Yahweh spoke to the fish, which then vomited Jonah onto the dry land.

 

Jonah 2: 3-5, 8

    Out of my distress I cried to Yahweh 
        and he answered me, 
    from the belly of Sheol I cried out; 
        you heard my voice! 

    For you threw me into the deep, 
        into the heart of the seas, 
    and the floods closed round me. 
    All your waves and billows 
            passed over me; 
        then I thought, ‘I am banished 
            from your sight; 
    how shall I ever see your holy Temple 
        again?’

    When my soul was growing ever weaker, 
        Yahweh, I remembered you, 
    and my prayer reached you 
        in your holy Temple.

 

Luke 10: 25-37  

And now a lawyer stood up and, to test him, asked, ‘Master, what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ He said to him, ‘What is written in the Law? What is your reading of it?’ He replied, ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbour as yourself.’ Jesus said to him, ‘You have answered right, do this and life is yours.’

But the man was anxious to justify himself and said to Jesus, ‘And who is my neighbour?’ In answer Jesus said, ‘A man was once on his way down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell into the hands of bandits; they stripped him, beat him and then made off, leaving him half dead. Now a priest happened to be travelling down the same road, but when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. In the same way a Levite who came to the place saw him, and passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan traveller who came on him was moved with compassion when he saw him. He went up to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them. He then lifted him onto his own mount and took him to an inn and looked after him. Next day, he took out two denarii and handed them to the innkeeper and said, "Look after him, and on my way back I will make good any extra expense you have." Which of these three, do you think, proved himself a neighbour to the man who fell into the bandits’ hands?’ He replied, ‘The one who showed pity towards him.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Go, and do the same yourself.’

 

                R. Jonah did not feel he could do
                the job the Lord asked of him so he
                ran away — He took refuge on a
                ship, but a big storm came up
                and he knew it was his fault
                and asked to be thrown overboard.
                God has a plan for us — He is watching
                over us — even if we don't see
                Him — Sin, unloving ways drive
                us from Him — He is love, He is
                truth — If we want to be ever
                closer to Him we must walk in
                the ways of purity —

                    We are little compared to whales —
                one time my husband took a picture
                of a fish under water it was so
                big and he was diving — I thought
                he said 48 feet.

                    God has all the power — we can't
                run from God, not really, we can
                do our own thing, but our sinful
                ways, our disobedience to God's will
                show in the end.

                    Jonah knew the calling from
                God and he ran, he rebelled,
                God doesn't ask too much of
                us — He picks us and wants us
                to answer the call and He will reward
                us in the end for our obedience
                in lovingly serving Him and helping
                to build His Kingdom —

                    God has a purpose for all of us —
                I can order a car and I say "Oh I want
                power windows", "I want a trailer
                hitch", "I want enough seats for
                my family" The car comes and I
                want it to operate for the purpose
                I had in mind. It has that potential
                if they made it as I asked.

                    Out of all the possible souls
                that God could have created — He
                said "There is the soul I can love"
                He made us, gave us our talents
                to work with each other and help
                build His Kingdom —

                    On the way to being a teenager
                on our own — our parents (wounded
                human beings) raised us — If
                anger and bad habits, unloving
                ways were passed on to them from
                their parents, they could have treated
                us very selfishly, harshly,
                wounding us in unloving ways —

                    That does not change God's
                call to us — He created us, gave
                us these parents and our
                wounds can be the very things
                if we triumph over them to make
                us strong, compassionate, loving,
                wounded-healers, helping others
                in life to heal. God gives us the
                grace to do what He wants us
                to do if we follow His plan and
                co-operate with His Plan
                for us.

                    Wounded - healers, do you like
                that — that teaches us we can
                raise above our wounds and help
                others —

                    Jesus was wounded for our
                sins, but He rose with
                glorified wounds. He gives us
                the Church. We see His suffering.
                We know the Glory.

   

    

Death — Resurrection

 

                R. Wounded - Healers

                Death - Resurrection

                When I was a child, I was always
                amazed how cuts and bruises
                I got playing, healed so fast —
                Our wounds we had spiritually
                need to be healed or we can keep
                acting them out (unfinished business)
                on innocent others and it doesn't
                heal these wounds — We have to
                see for example if we were
                children of alcoholics, we have
                issues — fear of abandonment
                issues, we can keep acting
                out 'love - hate patterns',
                stuffed feelings, stuffed angry
                feelings that need to be healed.
                Bad patterns we act-out on
                the weekends, stuffed fear,
                lack of trust.

                This is the process of growing
                spiritually in love —

                Know God is loving us into
                existence and He is there —
                We can trust Him — He isn't
                like a dysfunctional imperfect
                father — Mary is full of grace,
                she is our spiritual Mother —
                Mary in appearing on this building
                in Clearwater showed herself
                in glimmering light — in
                rainbow color —

                Mary is giving us the message
                of Their two Hearts —

                The constancy that God gave us
                these letters of love to have
                a Personal Love Relationship
                with us —

                Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
                to help us raise above that woundedness
                in our past, the darkness in the
                world and spread these prayer
                chapters praying for the priests,
                the Church and the world —
                Helping get out Fr. Joe's and
                Fr. Carter's, Fr. Pasquini's
                writings, helping to spread
                the rosary meditations,
                the consecrations to the Sacred
                Heart and Immaculate Heart —

                We can run away like Jonah, but
                God has called us —

                Mary appearing here is the sign
                of her call to us —

                Dysfunction in us from our
                    wounded past can be
                    healed and we can get about
                    doing the work of bearing
                    fruit for the Kingdom of God.

                God is pleased when we do His
                    will — What else is there
                    when God has a Plan and we rebel
                    and we are now in California being
                    willful, when God called us
                    to be in New York —

                    A man called to the priesthood
                dodging his vocation is miserable,
                where can you run from God
                who created us —

  

Jonah 2: 3-5, 8

    Out of my distress I cried to Yahweh 
        and he answered me, 
    from the belly of Sheol I cried out; 
        you heard my voice! 

    For you threw me into the deep, 
        into the heart of the seas, 
    and the floods closed round me. 
    All your waves and billows 
            passed over me; 
        then I thought, ‘I am banished 
            from your sight; 
    how shall I ever see your holy Temple 
        again?’

    When my soul was growing ever weaker, 
        Yahweh, I remembered you, 
    and my prayer reached you 
        in your holy Temple.

   

                R. There is a Veggie Tale about
                    Jonah — great music and a
                    great performance for young and old —

                The Gospel says

                    Who is my neighbor? Jesus
                died for all the souls. The hard
                ones are the ones we may be
                able to reach with these
                writings.

                    For 6 weeks Jesus told me,
                1991 before I got His letters
                in the Blue Books —

                    "Feed the hungry" "Feed the hungry"

                Jesus gives us a sharing in His
                life in baptism and He feeds
                us with Himself —

                    

Spiritual Communion

                        Dear Jesus — we want to make a spiritual
                        communion, we cannot receive You
                        now, but we want to know Your
                        presence deep in our heart —
                        deep in our soul — Oh God fill us
                        with Your presence that we can
                        just focus on You and Your love
                        for us now — Love deep in us —
                        Oneness with You —
                        Quiet surrender to be alone in
                        this moment with You in our heart
                        in deep love —
                        We love You so much our beloved
                        God —

    

Jonah 3: 1-10  

The word of Yahweh was addressed to Jonah a second time. 'Up!' he said, 'Go to Nineveh, the great city, and preach to it as I shall tell you.' Jonah set out and went to Nineveh in obedience to the word of Yahweh. Now Nineveh was a city great beyond compare; to cross it took three days. Jonah began by going a day's journey into the city and then proclaimed, 'Only forty days more and Nineveh will be overthrown.' And the people of Nineveh believed in God; they proclaimed a fast and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least. When the news reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off his robe, put on sackcloth and sat down in ashes. He then had it proclaimed throughout Nineveh, by decree of the king and his nobles, as follows: ‘No person or animal, herd or flock, may eat anything; they may not graze, they may not drink any water. All must put on sackcloth and call on God with all their might; and let everyone renounce his evil ways and violent behaviour. Who knows? Perhaps God will change his mind and relent and renounce his burning wrath, so that we shall not perish.’ God saw their efforts to renounce their evil ways. And God relented about the disaster which he had threatened to bring on them, and did not bring it.

     

                R. God wants more than pious
                resolutions. He wants conversion.
                Our Lady appeared at Fatima
                she said we needed to convert —
                We need to die to our selfish
                ways and be more and more as
                God intends us to be —

                    When Jonah went to the
                people — they had to change —
                they had to change their evil
                ways — They had to put aside
                violence so the Lord held
                back what He had threatened.

                    We see in the Old Testament that the
                Lord allowed the people to suffer
                until they turned from their
                evil ways —

                Gather #128 Psalm 130

                In the Gospel God shows us
                Martha and Mary

   

Luke 10: 38-42

In the course of their journey he came to a village, and a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. She had a sister called Mary, who sat down at the Lord's feet and listened to him speaking. Now Martha, who was distracted with all the serving, came to him and said, 'Lord, do you not care that my sister is leaving me to do the serving all by myself? Please tell her to help me.' But the Lord answered, 'Martha, Martha,' he said, 'you worry and fret about so many things, and yet few are needed, indeed only one. It is Mary who has chosen the better part, and it is not to be taken from her.'

 

                R. Mary who sat at the feet
                of the Lord and listened to Him
                had chosen the better part Jesus said.
                Can you imagine hearing God
                teaching you and you were
                worried about you preparing
                cakes in the kitchen —
                Who was more important?
                Who should have been the focus?
                We are to be prepared to listen
                    when God is calling us
                    to listen —

                So many times the devil can
                    tempt us to finish up
                    old stuff we put off
                    when God is calling us
                    to listen that day and pray for
                    the world —

 

Luke 10: 41-42

...'Martha, Martha,' he said, 'you worry and fret about so many things, and yet few are needed, indeed only one. It is Mary who has chosen the better part, and it is not to be taken from her.'

   

                R. I said to myself, "All I have
                to do is God's will" and Jesus
                said to me, "but that is hard
                for so many who put their
                will above Mine as satan
                tempts them to oppose Me,
                just to not have anyone
                tell them what to do, loving
                surrender to the will of God"
                "My child, that is holiness, let
                God lead the way and do it in
                joy to serve Him. The man
                who opposes God makes his
                own suffering and misery.
                Like trying to ride the
                car backward, and bicycle
                backward. It bears no
                fruit and is a big chance for
                problems"

                    "Why go backward when going
                frontward is what your
                Father desires. Oh the free will —
                What is love if one forces you
                to do it — Love is joy, surrendering,
                from the heart, being under,
                being in unity — only the fool
                stands alone when it opposes
                the Plan of the Father.

                Little men with big heads
                are little men with really
                little heads — they are not
                growing in the ways of
                real wisdom. Wisdom comes
                from God!! All that is
                Good has its origins in God."

   

Jonah 4: 1-11

This made Jonah very indignant; he fell into a rage. He prayed to Yahweh and said, ‘Please, Yahweh, isn’t this what I said would happen when I was still in my own country? That was why I first tried to flee to Tarshish, since I knew you were a tender, compassionate God, slow to anger, rich in faithful love, who relents about inflicting disaster. So now, Yahweh, please take my life, for I might as well be dead as go on living.’ Yahweh replied, ‘Are you right to be angry?’ 

    Jonah then left the city and sat down to the east of the city. There he made himself a shelter and sat under it in the shade, to see what would happen to the city. Yahweh God then ordained that a castor–oil plant should grow up over Jonah to give shade for his head and soothe his ill–humour; Jonah was delighted with the castor–oil plant. But at dawn the next day, God ordained that a worm should attack the castor–oil plant–and it withered. Next, when the sun rose, God ordained that there should be a scorching east wind; the sun beat down so hard on Jonah’s head that he was overcome and begged for death, saying, ‘I might as well be dead as go on living.’ God said to Jonah, ‘Are you right to be angry about the castor–oil plant?’ He replied, ‘I have every right to be angry, mortally angry!’ Yahweh replied, ‘You are concerned for the castor–oil plant which has not cost you any effort and which you did not grow, which came up in a night and has perished in a night. So why should I not be concerned for Nineveh, the great city, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left, to say nothing of all the animals?’

   

                R. Jonah is angry that God
                did not carry out the evil
                He threatened against Nineveh.
                Jonah should have rejoiced
                God used him and did not
                destroy the city of Nineveh —
                God has used us in the Shepherds
                of Christ to reach so many
                people and we should
                thank Him and work with zeal
                in our vocation that God
                counted us worthy for such
                an honorable work!

   

Psalm 86: 3-6, 9-10

take pity on me, Lord, 
for to you I cry all the day. 
Fill your servant’s heart with joy, Lord, 
for to you I raise up my heart. 

Lord, you are kind and forgiving, 
rich in faithful love for all who call upon you. 
Yahweh, hear my prayer, 
listen to the sound of my pleading.

All nations will come and adore you, Lord, 
and give glory to your name. 
For you are great and do marvellous deeds, 
you, God, and none other.

   

                Sing: Lord, you are merciful and gracious.

                Sing: Abba Father

                R. When we pray we are showing God
                    we recognize our dependence
                    on Him. God has asked us to
                    spread these prayer
                    chapters all over the world.

                We show God we rely on His
                    Might and we are confident
                    He will hear us —

                Jesus taught us to pray!!

   

The Our Father

    Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Use Your Talents

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.

                R. The greatest commandment
                    is to love —

 

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.'

   

                R. God is love —
                Give God all you got in love —
                God loves us so much —

                Jesus: I give you My letters of love in the Blue Books —
                    So you will know I love you more
                        than you can even understand —

                This reality —

                I write to you My letters of love
                    to teach you —

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.

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.

end of excerpt

   

                Jesus: What is your excuse for why you do not
                    love? Are you a victim of past
                    wounds and you pin all your anger
                    from depriving yourself of joy
                    and life on others?

                Love is an act of the will.
                Love is a choice.

                Loving God means going out to
                    others —

                You think tomorrow you will
                    be healed of your anger
                    and bad moods —
                    You can choose to blame
                    others for your tainted heart —

                I have blessed you abundantly —
                I have given you My lavish love
                    in the Eucharist—
                    in the priest
                    in one another —

                    depriving yourself of joy is
                        your choice —

                The man focused on Me is going out,
                    doing My will —
                    Doing what God wants —

                Loving —

                My lesson is love —
                My will is love —

                You can say "no", but I
                    command you to love and
                    when you don't you
                    disobey My commandment
                    and law to love.

                Love and Compassion —

                Going out

                Being Christ to one another —

                Put on Christ —

 

A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

-Mass Book, December 27, 1995

 

 

December 27, 1995

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                Jesus: Like a bird out of a cage — you can
                    be set free in doing God's will.

 

                Mysteries of Light

                R. I see the light glistening on the ocean —

                It is so beautiful even to see how the ocean
                    changes colors of blue, green all day,
                    but the sky changes too —

                Do you ever see the sky so beautiful as
                    you do and just are in awe with the
                    wonder of God —

                My heart skips a beat sometimes morning
                    and night when I see reds and golden reds
                    of the sky and I want to embrace God so
                    deeply and thank Him for the gift —

                What about the Transfiguration.

                I saw Jesus appear to me several times transfigured.
                    I remember the golden, silver mirror like beauty
                    from many apparitions in the sanctuary
                    I can never even explain —

                I have seen the golden era and this like golden
                    'see-through veil' in front of the sanctuary and
                    I tingle inside to be in this vision and know His
                    precious gift to me then, letting the
                    moment be a happening and I am in
                    that presence of God, in His veil —
                    I cannot even describe these
                    things — mirror like beauteous lights
                    beyond words.

                    But I remember Mary's image and then Jesus'
                    face when He would appear at night —
                    even after Mary's image head was
                    broken —

                The light on His face was golden-red —
                    indescribable in words and
                    I could feel heat coming at me as
                    I knew His presence as He appeared —
                    Like when Joe guarded the image
                    at night, beneath the face of Jesus —
                    and did the priest lists —

   

                    R. A miracle it was to me to see this magnificent
                    wonder, I could never describe —

                How do you describe these 5ths?

                R. This building is a special place where
                    Mary appeared —

 

 

                R. Light —

                Jesus is the Light of the world —

                This is real

                I have seen visions — so many and I
                    cannot ever describe them —
                    or describe even the 1st vision
                    of His Heart

    

December 17, 1991Picture of Jesus' Heart on fire.

Jesus: I am Jesus. I have spoken as never before, you will spread My love to all souls on this earth.

His Burning Heart

R. I was alone in All Saints Church after Mass and Communion, in front of the tabernacle, when I saw the Sacred Heart. It was red around the outside, then a layer of yellow and then the brightest light in the center. I felt heat and it looked like an open furnace.

    I thought about it all day and it instantly gave me peace and warmth in my heart. This is the purpose of these letters—to draw hearts to the ardent on-fire love of Jesus. I received the following message that day:

    "Open your heart to the fire of God's love. He is ablaze in your heart. He wants to dwell in you and love you and others through you. Love God, yourself and one another and experience the fire set aglow in your heart and experience the warmth of His love."

                R. Light —

                    Today we focus on the
                    Mysteries of Light

               

Mysteries of Light

 

                Jesus being baptized by John in the Jordon

                (1) R. See the Jordon — see the river — see people
                    and see John the Baptist and Jesus.

                (2) R. Focus on this scene - isn't it beautiful —
                    you are happy to be looking from afar.

                (3) R. All of a sudden, the heavens open and you
                    hear a voice —
                    you see the Holy Spirit over Jesus
                    The voice says
                    "This is My Beloved Son in whom
                        I am well pleased"
                    Wow — you tingle inside

                (4) R. The beautiful sky,
                        The vast ocean,
                        God's creation —

                    You go to a baptism and you again are
                        standing far off —

                    You hear the words of the priest —
                        you see the beautiful baby —
                        Their whole life before them.

                (5) R. In baptism we receive a sharing in
                        His life —
                    Our knowing and loving capacity is elevated —
                    Wow — tell everybody the Good News.

                (6) R. Oh God help us to grow to be more and more
                        like Jesus.

                (7) R. We were created in God's image and likeness —

                (8) Wow — oh God
                    You feed this life with Yourself —
                    Jesus comes to us in the Eucharist —
                    We can put on Christ —

                (9) R. We are filled more and more with His
                    abundant life as we go to the Eucharist.

                (10) Tell them Rita, Tell them He says —
                    Wow, Wow, Wow
                    Zeal for such a commission —
                    Joy for this reality!!
                    Wow, Wow, Wow

    

                The Wedding at Cana

                (1) R. I am not growing old spiritually —
                    I am filled more and more with His
                        marvelous life in me —

                (2) R. Growing more and more in Him —
                    Going to the Eucharist daily —
                    Being before the tabernacle —

                (3) R. Well lets put ourselves at the Wedding
                    at Cana —
                    I see Mary and Jesus and
                        Mary is talking to Jesus —

                (4) R. Mary tells Him they have no wine —

                (5) R. Jesus speaks to Mary —

                (6) R. But soon they bring Jesus
                    the jugs and He turns the water to wine.

                (7) R. The head waiter tastes the water turned
                    wine.

                (8) R. The head waiter asks them why did they save the
                    good wine until last —

                (9) R. Jesus performed this miracle at Cana
                    at the intercession of His Mother, Mary.

                (10) R. Jesus gives us the priests — today as we go to
                    Mass, the priest changes wine into
                    the Blood of Jesus —
                    Jesus is there — Chief priest and celebrant —
                    Oh Jesus, I love You so much —
                        You shed Your Blood for me and
                        You give me Yourself today in the
                        Eucharist —
                    Wow, Wow, Wow —

                    He fills me with His life!!

  

                The Kingdom of God

                (1)R.  I am on a mountain now and I
                    am meditating about Jesus teaching
                    the apostles and the people.

                (2) R. Jesus came to teach us about the
                    Kingdom of God —

                (3) R. Wow — He gives us His Word, He
                    gives us Himself in the Eucharist —
                    Wow He gives us the Bread of Life —
   

 

                (4) R. Don't you love the priests —
                    Many priests are really getting
                        old and dying and
                        many boys and men aren't
                        going into the seminary.

                (5)

Fr. Carter had a dream.

                    R. Fr. Carter got this message from Jesus.

  

July 31, 1994

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)

 

                (6)

                    R. Jesus gave me this message.

  A message for the Earth from Jesus

January 22, 1998

    I am the Good Shepherd, these are My prayers, the prayers I give to help renew the Church and the world, all prayer chapters are asked to include these prayers (found in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual). As My Apostles and Shepherds I ask you to encourage all existing Chapters to try to encourage all existing prayer groups to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Encourage all Churches to pray these prayers. It is most urgent that the people of this earth concur with the Father's wishes to begin Prayer Chapters. This is an urgent request from the Good Shepherd. The flock will become one when they have given their hearts to Jesus and Mary. Encourage all priests to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Your world will be lighted with great light as the people of this earth pray these prayers.

        From December 3, 2004  

                        R. Today the Feast of St. Xavier,
                        First Friday, Jesus appeared to me
                        as the King on His Throne at the
                        Cathedral where He told me to go
                        to Church. 

   He was smiling and His
mouth moved and moved and moved.
He looked happy and the vision was
all aglow. He gave me a message to sit
in the first pew and He appeared
and talked about 20 minutes, He
was smiling.

                (9) R. This message was given to Fr. Carter.
    

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

My dear fellow Associate Members,

Jesus is calling special apostles to join a new division of the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Here is a message from Jesus given to Father Carter:

    My beloved priest-companion, I am requesting that a new prayer movement be started under the direction of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I am asking for volunteers who are willing to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for one hour, twice-weekly. Members of the Shepherds of Christ prayer chapters, as well as others, are to be invited to join this movement.

    These apostles are to pray for the intentions I am giving you. For part of the hour they are to use the prayers of the Shepherds of Christ Associates Handbook. They may spend the rest of the hour as they so choose.

    I will use this new prayer movement within My Shepherds of Christ Ministries in a powerful way to help in the renewal of My Church and the world. I will give great graces to those who join this movement. The name, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, is to be given to this movement.

    I am inviting My beloved Rita Ring to be coordinator for this activity.

    I pour out the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.

    This is indeed a special calling for us to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:

    1. For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.
    2. For the Pope.
    3. For all bishops of the world.
    4. For all priests.
    5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.
    6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.
    7. For all members of the Catholic Church.
    8. For all members of the human family.
    9. For all souls in purgatory.

end of Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart

 

                (10) R. On October 13, 1994 — 17 years ago
                    Fr. Carter got this message.
   

 

October 13, 1994

The Birth of the Full Ministries
of the Shepherds of Christ

    "I wish to share with you part of a message which Jesus gave us on October 13, 1994. The message tells us about the expansion of the Shepherds of Christ movement:

    'My beloved priest-companion, today I come to you with another mission. I am asking you to establish Shepherds of Christ Ministries. At My request you have already begun the priestly newsletter, "Shepherds of Christ", and the prayer chapters, Shepherds of Christ Associates...

    'I am giving you this message on this day, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, because of the close connection between the Shepherds of Christ movement and the Fatima message. The Fatima message is centered in devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart, especially in consecration to Our Hearts. Shepherds of Christ Ministries is also centered in devotion to Our Hearts. I will use Shepherds of Christ Ministries as a great instrument in helping to bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. When this occurs, My Church and the world will be experiencing the great era of peace promised by My Mother at Fatima.

    'Today, then, October 13, 1994, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, marks the birth of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I pour forth the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.'

    "Jesus has told us that Shepherds of Christ Ministries includes: the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, Shepherds of Christ Associates prayer chapters, various publications, including books, whatever else Our Lord directs us to undertake.

    "As members of Shepherds of Christ Associates, you are an extremely important part of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. You have given great joy to the Heart of Jesus by responding to His invitation to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. As He draws you closer to His Heart and to His Mother's Heart as Associates members, He will fill you with an ever-increasing experience of His love, peace, and joy."

                Transfiguration

                (1) R. Jesus is the Light of the world —

                (2) R. Jesus walked the earth, but
                    then He began doing His
                    miracles.

                (3) R. Jesus looked like an ordinary
                        man, but Jesus is
                        the Divine God —

                (4) R. Let's go up Mt. Tabor with
                        Peter, James and John and
                        imagine what happened —

                (5) R. See Jesus transfigured before
                        them and hear the voice
                        of the Father. 

‘This is my beloved Son, Listen to him.’

                (6) R. Imagine Moses and Elijah
                        appearing with Jesus and
                        they are talking to Him —

                (7) R. Moses gave us the 10 Commandments
                        on the tablets from God.

                    Elijah was a prophet of God —

                (8) R. Jesus is Priest, Prophet and King.
                        He gives us the truth —
                        God gives us His laws to follow.

                (9) R. God created us —
                        We are special —
                        We are unique —
                        We have a purpose in God's Plan —
                        We should do God's will.

                (10) From the Priestly Newsletter

Cardinal Newman said

                    "... everyone who breathes, high and low,
                    educated and ignorant, young and old, man and woman,
                    has a mission, has a work. We are not sent
                    into this world for nothing; we are not born at
                    random. . . God sees every one of us;
                    He creates every soul, He lodges it in
                    a body, one by one, for a purpose. He needs,
                    He deigns to need, every one of us.
                    He has an end for each of us... we are
                    placed in our different ranks and stations, not to
                    get what we can out of them for ourselves, but to
                    labor in them for Him, as He rejoiced to do His work,
                    we must rejoice in ours also.
"

                Institution of the Eucharist

                (1) R. Oh my God I love You —

                (2) R. Oh my God I adore You

 

                (3) R. Oh my God come to me — I long
                    and thirst for You —

 

 

                (4) R. You give us the Bishops
                    descendants of the Apostles.

2 Peter 1: 16-19

When we told you about the power and the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, we were not slavishly repeating cleverly invented myths; no, we had seen his majesty with our own eyes. He was honoured and glorified by God the Father, when a voice came to him from the transcendent Glory, This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favour.  We ourselves heard this voice from heaven, when we were with him on the holy mountain.

So we have confirmation of the words of the prophets; and you will be right to pay attention to it as to a lamp for lighting a way through the dark, until the dawn comes and the morning star rises in your minds.

Colossians 1: 15-20

He is the image of the unseen God,
the first–born of all creation,
for in him were created all things
in heaven and on earth:
everything visible
    and everything invisible,
thrones, ruling forces,
    sovereignties, powers—
all things were created through him
    and for him.
He exists before all things
and in him all things hold together,
and he is the Head of the Body,
that is, the Church.

He is the Beginning,
the first–born from the dead,
so that he should be supreme in every way;
because God wanted all fullness
    to be found in him
and through him
    to reconcile all things to him,
everything in heaven
    and everything on earth,
by making peace through his death
    on the cross.

The Two Hearts and the Mass

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people that they are living in the Age of the Two Hearts—that of My Heart and My Mother's heart. My people live in the initial stages of this great era. I call all My people to take up their refuge in My Heart and My Mother's heart. In Our Hearts they will become more and more transformed into My likeness.

"The greatest source for growth in devotion to Our Hearts is the Eucharist. I wish My people to attend Mass often, daily if possible. What a great gift I have given to My people in the Eucharist! Yet many of My people are indifferent to the treasures contained in the Mass. Think of it! My people are privileged to offer the Sacrifice of the Mass together with Me! And yet how many prefer to do other things rather than attend Mass. How this attitude offends My Sacred Heart!

"I long for My people to participate in the Mass and to receive Me worthily! Think of it! I, Who am your God, long to come to you each day! In the Eucharist I come to you in My Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. Present within you, I long to take you close to My Sacred Heart, this Heart which is truly within you. The more you allow Me to do so, the more closely I press you to this Heart. I shower you with its riches. I abundantly give you great graces which increasingly form you in My likeness.

"I am Lord and Master! Please listen to My words. Pray, pray for a deeper understanding of the Mass. In union with Mary, approach Me daily in the Eucharist. I, your God, long to come to you. How much do you long to receive Me?"

Reflection: Everything in the life of the Church, and in the Christian lives of each of us individually, is centered in the Mass. Vatican II, in a few words, makes a powerful statement concerning the Church's Liturgy—at the center of which is the Eucharistic Sacrifice: ". . .in the liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the fountain from which all her power flows" [The Documents of Vatican II, Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, No.10 (American Press edition)].

Lucia's Vision

 

January 2, 1997

"In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen."

"The grace of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all."

God pours out His grace in this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It is the greatest gift when God gives Himself to us.

We share with God His life, given to us abundantly in the Mass.

He gives Himself to us and we give ourselves to Him. The great love affair between God and man: His Holy Mass.

The priest is another Christ to us. It is Christ present, through the priest, celebrating the Mass. We must see Christ in the priest, see Him celebrate the Mass, see His beautiful brown hair, His gentle face, see Him, our Savior. This Jesus Christ that came was born an infant and gave Himself to His death on the cross that we would share His life. See Him now in the Mass, giving Himself in the greatest gift of all. He gives us His divine love and His divine life.

Oh, we thank You for Your life. We know Jesus died and rose and gave us a sharing in His holy life. His life is now abundantly poured, as a fountain to us, especially in the Mass.

Then we hear His word. Let the word of God penetrate our being. Let us feel this Living Word of God. As a two-edged sword, it comes forth with such conviction and love and it penetrates the souls of the faithful with such love. It is food indeed, food for our soul.

He is the Good Shepherd. He speaks to us. He gives us all we want. "Yahweh is my shepherd, I lack nothing." (Ps. 23:1)

He gives us green pastures, and His water pours out and refreshes us. He outpours His grace as a fountain to feed us with His life.

He is a just God, good and kind, all loving, for He is Love. We want for nothing for He outpours His love and His life to us in the Mass. We feast on His Body and Blood and are fed with His Word. We become one in Him and He shares Himself with us.

It is through the Mass celebrated by the hands of a holy priest that we will experience the Mass the way Christ intends. These writings are insights which hopefully will help lead you to the spring of life-giving water, the fountain of love and life He outpours in the Mass.

There will be a new earth when men will see with the light of seven suns. They will know God. A people walking in darkness will see a great light. They will no longer be blind, they will be enlightened, they will love God with the greatest love in the Mass. They will feast on His Body and Blood and will be united as one body in His holy Church through His life given to us in the Eucharist.

We will drink copiously from the fountain of grace which He pours out in the Mass. We will be filled with His love, absorbed with the love of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and feasting on His divine life.

We see with the vision of God. We partake in such a union with God. We see with the light the Spirit gives to us. The priest celebrates the Mass and we know God with such an intense knowing in this union. We are saturated with His life flowing from the hands of His consecrated priest.

And I look at Him, the priest, and I see Jesus there. I see Him giving Himself to Me. I see the new and Holy City. I see with such clarity the great gift that God gives to us in the Mass!

We learn how to love in the Mass, for we unite to God. He gives us such an intimate sharing in His divine love that we carry His love out to the world. In this union we know His loving to an intense degree and we carry this love out to others. We share in an intense way in His divine act of loving. He, Who is love, gives Himself to us and we are absorbed in His love and we know intensely how God loves. We are filled with love for God and for each other, for, in the oneness He is loving through us. He gives us lights into His loving capacity and we know His loving power in an intensity we did not know before.

We then pray. We offer up our intentions for this Mass. It is now we who intercede to Him to outpour His grace on us and help us with these intentions.

We pray for this reign of peace when the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph and men will fervently love and adore God with burning love. We pray for all souls and the Church and we beg for His help, His love, His grace.

We offer ourselves as a sacrifice. We offer the bread that will become the bread of life.

The priest mixes the water and the wine and we realize how His Divinity mixes with our humanity.

We offer the wine that will become our spiritual drink-His blood.

I give myself to Him and I beg to be cleansed of my sins with the washing of the hands.

"May the Lord accept the sacrifice at your hands for the praise and glory of His name, for our good and the good of all His Church."

We ask Him to accept the gifts we want to give Him, we give Him thanks, we lift up our hearts in thanks and praise and we sing out:

"Holy, Holy God, of power and might…" we sing Him praise and thank Him-oh, God we love Thee so much."

My heart is so filled with such awe. I cry because I love Him so much.

Every word in the Mass, I love. The priest consecrates the host and changes it into the Body and Blood of Christ.

Oh, it makes me cry for I am so struck with awe at what happens at the Consecration. I unite in the oneness with the priest, with Christ and with all present, with heaven and earth. I am one in that moment, united in the sacrifice of Christ giving Himself to the Father.

This is the moment when I unite in such oneness with Christ in the purity of Mary's heart. I give myself as a sacrifice. I offer myself to the Father.

The Father looks down and He sees us united to His Son's Sacrifice. It is in this oneness that His grace is outpoured on us, that we die to that which is not like Him and that the Holy Spirit works in the heart of Mary and fills us with His life.

I am in ecstasy as I realize more and more the great gift of love that God gives us in His holy Mass. I am taken to such heights, being wrapped in the presence of God. It is rapture, this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

It is a great gift, experiencing this intense presence of the Almighty God: Through Him, With Him, and In Him.

We pray to the Father the prayer as Jesus taught us and beg, "thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven."

We pray: "For the Kingdom, the power and the glory are yours, now and forever."

We beg for peace in our hearts. We share this peace with one another. Then we beg of the Lamb of God. I want to get down to the ground and beg for His grace, mercy and forgiveness for our sins.

Please, God, I see us as a sinful people. I want the grace and mercy to flow abundantly.

He raises the Host and says: "This is the Lamb of God Who takes away the sins of the world, happy are those who are called to His supper."

We respond: "Lord, I am not worthy to receive you, but only say the word and I shall be healed."

I receive the Almighty God in Communion. All I want is Him. Oh, God, I want you, I adore you, I worship you, I love you.

Oh, for this moment when God gives Himself to me. Oh, God, words do not express this time-this intense presence of You within my being. Oh, sweet Savior, I love You!

You share Yourself so intimately with me. You imprint on my soul a knowing of Your Divine Being that is so intimate in this Communion when You give Yourself to me.

Oh, let our hearts be open to His grace that we may know this great gift more, that we will partake more fully in this greatest act of love with Divinity.

He shares Himself with us, the Almighty God, in such oneness. This is the greatest way to bind us with each other, to unite with each other in the Mass and Communion.

And so I sing the love of God, the love of His Mass. I beg you to pray for the grace that He can teach you in these writings about His most intimate love affair with man, the gift of Himself-the gift He gives us in the Mass.

The Holy Sacrifice, the sacrifice of Calvary, sacramentally-made-present in the Mass when He gives Himself to us with the greatest love!

And what does He ask in return? He asks that we love one another, that we give Him the glory, the thanksgiving, the adoration that is His due as the Almighty God.

He sends us forth with His blessing to share His most intimate love with all. We go forth as other Christs in the world. For He is alive this day and He lives in us and He gives His love to others through us. We act as channels of His life to one another.

The Mass is the richest source of His life. His life flows through the body, the Church, especially through the Sacraments and the Mass.

Oh Jesus, from the fountain of life that pours forth from Your pierced Heart, give us holy priests whose hearts are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary to celebrate the Mass-that there is such oneness between the priest and Christ that His grace will flow copiously.

We thirst for the fountain of life pouring forth from the pierced Heart of Christ. It is His life we seek and find in the Church. It is His love we want and we experience the greatest love affair with God in the Mass.

These books on the Mass are accounts of my intimate love affair with our Almighty God. Many experiences were enlightenments I received in the Mass.

I strongly advise all to pray, to say the Holy Spirit Prayer, the Consecration Prayers, and the Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, before Mass. (These prayers follow this message).

This book is the journey into the red room, the inner chamber of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the gateway, the pure and Immaculate Heart of His Mother.

It is in the Mass we give ourselves in such love to our Holy God. He gives Himself to us and we give ourselves to Him.

 

                (8)

A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

Guiding Light - Steadfast to the Son
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle A of the Liturgical Year
$ 10.00 plus postage

Guiding Light homily series - Steadfast to the Son - Cycle A — The sunflower is a great example of how we should be steadfastly guided by light. What a powerful thought that this exceptional plant is not stuck in one pose day in and day out, yet adaptable and magnetized to the sun. We feel the same about our Son. Our heads turns to face Christ as each day presents its challenges to find light. We join together like plants in a field and soak up the Son through the pulpit. We are a warm circle of strength using the wind of our breath to carry our priests' words, Christ's words, to new rich soil. $15

 

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Liturgical Year
$ 10.00 plus postage

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul - Cycle C — In a world rapidly advancing and encouraging personal gain, we are faced with modern problems. There is a challenge to find time in our busy schedules for Sunday Mass or a family meal. We are able to research, shop, bank and even work without hearing one human voice. It is no wonder that we may often feel disconnected and famished at our week's end. In Fr. Joe's third book of homilies from Cycle C, we are reminded of the charity that Christ intended us to show each other. We have a calling to turn the other cheek and be the Good Samaritan to others. We are rewarded with the Father's kingdom and love when we are not worthy. We are not left alone or hungry. $15

Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 10.00 plus postage

Like the disciples in the Book of Mark, this ordinary life clouds our vision of Christ's Divinity. We may doubt the practicality or possibility of applying His teachings and example to our modern life. Cycle B's homilies are a "guiding light" to help us realize Jesus' Messianic greatness and His promise of better things to come. $15

Priestly Newsletter - 2000 #1 - CD. - Christ is Our Strength - Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. It is so beautiful. "This brief passage contains one of the greatest lessons of the spiritual life. As we progress along our spiritual journey, we become increasingly aware of how weak we are in our-selves, but how strong we are in Christ. To experience our weakness involves suffering. The degree and kind of suffering can vary. The suffering can include the experience of the classical dark night of the spirit as described by St. John of the Cross. One of the main purposes of the dark night is to make a person keenly aware of his or her helplessness without God." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10

Each one is also called to share in that suffering through which the redemption was accomplished. He is called to share in that suffering through which all human suffering has also been redeemed. In bringing about the redemption through suffering, Christ has also raised human suffering to the level of the redemption. Thus each man in his suffering can also become a sharer in the redemptive suffering of Christ..." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10
