November 12, 2009

                God wants us to be happy —

                He gives us rules to live by to have
                    this happiness —

                Adam and Eve rebelled against the
                    command God gave to them

 

                Sin causes unhappiness.

                Sin stains the human soul and makes
                    man liable to punishment.

                Our human nature is wounded by
                    original sin —

                Because of original sin we do not see
                    as we should —

                We see with distorted vision 

                Man is weak
                Man has tendencies where he gives into
                    malicious deeds

                Sinning makes man unhappy
                Sinning wounds us

                When we sin it effects how we think
                    about things —

                The will becomes weak when seeking
                    good because of sin and giving
                    into it.

                Sinning makes it harder for us to
                    seek good —

                Happiness lies in doing good and living
                    according to God's will

                A virtuous man — is one who finds it
                    easier to pursue good —

                A man who gives into vices finds it
                    more difficult to pursue
                    good —

                We are here to grow in virtue —

                Sin wounds the human nature —

                Where one, in earlier life, may have been
                    more disciplined following
                    God's rules —

                One who has given into sin — demanded
                    their way, practiced deceiving
                    others, provoking others for
                    evil has developed vices, habits
                    that are evil.

                    The evil spirit counsels such a
                person to follow their will — the center
                becomes their own selfishness — the
                focus is themselves —

                    Where a goal, say to pray fervently
                at Church for good for all men and
                the world — A person through habits
                that are evil can even use a good
                thing — in and of itself — to serve
                an evil purpose for them —

                    They can become so blinded — and
                developed vices rather than virtues
                that they follow in rebellion to God's
                will because of their will of
                choosing an evil end rather than
                a good goal.

                    Choosing evil leads to grave
                unhappiness —

                    Choosing a virtuous life, living
                according to God's will brings us
                to happiness.

                    To be one with God — we model ourselves
                more and more after Mary and Jesus.
                Living the Consecration to Their Hearts —
                means we want to live a holy life —
                obeying God's will and dwelling deeply
                in the Heart of Jesus — the treasure we
                seek, happiness, virtuous living
                is in living in Him.

                    God wants us to work together as a
                mighty force — where His will, serving
                God is our goal — doing all things
                for His honor and glory —

                    But satan works in the person with
                the tainted goal — the blinded vision —
                Where one, holy one, chooses God as their
                goal and pleasing Him — for His honor and
                    glory

                The one, rebellious one, with the 'coke
                    bottom glasses' sees themselves
                    first — their evil selfish goal of serving
                    themselves —
                    getting affection for themselves
                    manipulating others for their evil end and
                        while appearing, deceptively,
                        to act as if they are pure in
                        their motive

                Any lying, deception when trying
                    to impress people of our
                    goodness, while deceiving with
                    a selfish, self promoting,
                    jealous, greedy, envious
                    heart — offends God

                God wants us as docile, little children
                    of the Father, living to help build
                    the Father's family —

                Sisters, brothers and priests are to model
                    this dedication to God, as a
                    witness for the love of God
                    first above all things

                To walk humbly, like Mary, the handmaid
                    of the Lord

                A person can become so deceptive
                    and deceiving they have taken
                    manipulation of others to serve
                    themselves, a top priority,
                    while deceiving others to serve
                    themselves —
                    IS THIS CHARITY — LOVE?
                    When serving oneself with something
                    as simple as food leads to deceiving others —

                When a person habitually is focused on them
                    as the goal and end, and not God's
                    glory, the efforts if a religious
                    are deceiving — if they wear the
                    garment of an order —

                Religious should be so in love with
                    God — seeing themselves as especially
                    chosen to show the light of Christ
                    in all their actions —
                    People - who witness to great faith —
                    People - who show hope

                And most of all - religious - who are
                    obedient to the Church and
                    those over them and show
                    charity — deep love for God and
                        others —

                Working against structure — giving bad
                    example, and wearing a habit
                    of the religious is a deception
                    and hurts the Catholic Church —

                The devil wants a person to focus on
                    themselves and live more and more
                    vices, bad habits, sinning —
                    and then when they are unhappy
                    living against the will of God —
                    sinning —
                    then the little child of the past
                        comes out of them to demand
                        'you' are responsible because
                        they are unhappy —

                Sinning makes a person, ultimately,
                    very unhappy —
                bad habits against God's will,
                selfishness with an evil goal —
                makes us unhappy —

                Then the person becomes angry —
                    can even punish those closest
                    to them because they are
                    unhappy — This leads to greater
                    evil — and greater unhappiness —
                    greater evil habits
                    weaker tendencies to turn to do good —

                For holiness
                    We start with God
                    We live for His honor and glory —

                    Our purpose is to master our inordinate
                    attachments to not be enslaved to
                    any attachments.

                    Our purpose is to model our lives
                        after Jesus and Mary

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)
