Messenger: My God and my All, how I love you.

I was going over thoughts in my mind and I could not find my hourly prayer list. I know God truly answers these prayers that I pray hourly for my family and the Movement, the Church and the world. I was beginning to feel negative and noticed how many of my thoughts were focused that way. I had talked to a friend before on the phone and discussed some worries in my heart. I felt really quite at peace, but the confusion and the anxiety of being in a hurry began to surface in negative thoughts. Feeling frustrated, I heard Our Lord speak to me. He clearly spoke. He said, "My beloved, I wish you to come to the Mass and love Me. That is what I want, I want your love. Please come and love Me so intently in this Mass. Put aside all the fears in your heart and your anxiety and come with such eagerness in your heart to love Me so intently. Oh My child, how I love you and want your love. This is all that matters, that you live every moment in the Father's will, accepting the crosses and the joys as they come, knowing the constancy of My love at every moment, experiencing My Presence as your Divine Bridegroom within your heart and soul. Do you experience Me within you now? I wish you to have peace at every moment, in every trial, knowing I am so united to you in this deep oneness. When you go to Mass, I wish you to be absorbed in loving your beloved Spouse." I could see My beloved Jesus in my heart, the beauty of His brown hair and His beard and His most Sacred Heart on His chest beaming with radiant love for me. I want Him so much and love Him so much and I do know His deep presence. The experience of this presence was so strengthened by His words.

Jesus speaks: My dear ones,
I give you this message this day November 21, 1998. I am the Divine Bridegroom, the Bridegroom of your soul, I am so attentive to your needs at every second. I am with you in every breath you breathe and every beat of your heart, in every anxious sigh. My child, the very hairs of your head are numbered.

I want you to know My constant presence with you. I wish you would all join in one mind and one heart on the hour asking for the Blood of Jesus to be spread on you and your family, the Movement, the Church and the world.

For a shortened version of the Infant of Prague Novena, you can pray the following:
"Father, in the name of Jesus in the Holy Spirit through the powerful intercession of the Virgin Mary, in union with Jesus in the Mass, with all the angels and saints and the souls in purgatory..." and ask for your requests.

This can be shortened to:
"Father, in the name of Jesus, through the powerful intercession of Mary please grant my requests. I pray that Thy will be done." If you are able, pray the whole Infant of Prague Novena.

The following Infant of Prague Novena is from the prayer booklet, Devotion To The INFANT JESUS OF PRAGUE with Nihil Obstat by William W. Baum, S.T.D. and Imprimatur by Charles H. Helmsing, Bishop of Kansas City - St. Joseph.

Novena to the Infant of Prague (to be prayed hourly if possible)

          O Jesus, who said, "Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you," through the intercession of Mary, Your most holy Mother, I knock, I seek, I ask that my prayer be granted. (for the Shepherds of Christ intentions and all your private intentions)

          O Jesus, who said, "All that you ask of the Father in My Name He will grant you," through the intercession of Mary, Your most holy Mother, I humbly and urgently ask Your Father in Your Name that my prayer be granted. (for the Shepherds of Christ intentions and all your private intentions)

          O Jesus, who said, "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My word shall not pass," through the intercession of Mary, Your most holy Mother, I feel confident that my prayer will be granted. (for the Shepherds of Christ intentions and all your private intentions)

Jesus speaks: All Shepherds of Christ members are asked to stop at the tolling of the hour and pray, no matter how short the prayer. I wish this constant union of our Hearts. The more you consecrate your hearts with one another, through the single line, "I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.", the deeper you will go into My Heart and the more you will live in peace and harmony in the Father's will in the truth.

I give you these guidelines as keys to happiness. You cannot be divided. Know My constant care and love for you. I beg you to use God's Blue Books always, every day. The devil will come as a thief to steal your peace, I give you My love letters. The message given to My messenger today in her heart before Mass is given to you to keep forever in your heart, to help you know My constant presence and love for you.

The love letters I give in God's Blue Books are My love letters to you. Keep the books with you so that you can open to any page and hear My love message to you at any time.

Oh My beloved ones, I am your beloved Jesus, your Spouse, so attentive to you, the Bridegroom of your soul. Come to Me and tell Me your love. I am longing for this love, especially in the Mass when I give Myself most intimately to you. Do not run out after Mass, I remain with you most intimately for about 20 minutes after Communion.

I love you,

Please look up in Scriptures Genesis 3:9-15 and verse 20.

I am asking you to study this passage.

Is Your Glass Half-Full or Half-Empty?

God's Blue Book III Cover

April 18, 1994

Messenger: How is your day? Is your glass half-full or half-empty? This is the gauge to how you are feeling inside. Are you seeing all the blessings He is pouring out to you-your health, your food, your loved ones, all the blessings that you have each day? Or are you coming from a place of never having enough? Do you feel irritable and feel that nothing is right, that everything is wrong?

Is the glass half-full or is it half-empty? Do you look for things that are right in your world or do you look for things that are wrong? Do you know that God gives to you exactly what you need and that it is in your acceptance of these things that you grow in your relationship with Him?

Is the glass half-full or half-empty? Do I look at the world and see the love of God in my brothers? Do I look at the world and see the world as not giving to me?

God has all you need. God provides us with our needs. The world is hurting. The world is not that by which we are filled. The world cries from its own pain. How can the world fill us?

We crave the love of God. Our souls can only be satisfied by the love of God. When we see the world as a place that needs God's love, we come to the world with a full glass.

How is your glass today? Is it half-full or half-empty? If you go to our beloved Jesus, He fills you with His love. His love is emitted from your very being. When you spend time with Him and remain fixed in Him, there is peace in His love.

The biggest contribution you can give to yourself and this world is to busy yourself with your relationship with Jesus. Be an empty vessel (glass) ready to be filled by His love.
