Mary: My blessed America,
I am Mary your Mother — you see
the beauty of your land — from Alaska
to Florida to California, to the state
of Washington — your beauty in the waters
of the Great Lakes and state of New York —
Why are you so stingy in thanking your
God for your gifts given — Hide not the
dirt on your souls, but be cleansed
by the sacrament of Penance, tell
the people about Baptism — Water is
given and you see its beauty all over
the world — the coastlands all over the
world and yet you fail to recognize
the beauty of your soul and your
Father above who calls you to purity
and beauty in your hearts —
And Jesus said
"I will write the messages of My
love on their hearts" and He has
written His letters of love for you
to circulate to the souls — so their
hearts will know Jesus and the message
of His Heart given in His Blue Books —
Spread the Blue Books my precious
children — so His words of love will
be written for the hungry race on
their hearts —
Mary tells me
Jesus says "I love you, I love you,
I love you — My Heart is on fire
for you — I will set the world
ablaze with the love letters of
My Heart, but you must circulate
them to the people"
Mary continues —
Oh my child — Oh my America —
go to the Heart of my Son and to my
Immaculate Heart — tell the world
of the Rosaries we gave on the same
day I appeared at Clearwater —
December 17, 1996
My children listen to me
Oh America pray the prayers Jesus
Oh giant coast lands — you see
beauty, but fail to know the
beauty of your own graced soul —

from the Rosary of August 27, 1996
Mary: I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

The lives of the people who
believed in God and those
who did not —
Where are those men killed in
so many wars now —
What of the floods that destroyed
so many structures — did this
remind men of Noah, did it remind
them of the dividing of the Red Sea —
How much pain is taken to preserve
artifacts and how some ignore their
souls — their spiritual life —
And yet God commissioned
you in baptism to spread the
Good News, but you say — the world
doesn't want that —
How long is your life span —
how many people have you touched
in your life span —

the Kings of Egypt long ago — so much

God created the waters, the earth

You act as if you own things —
God created you to know, love and

How can you seek dominance for
dominance sake — step on

God gave to you your bodies to serve
He breathed life in you —
Don't kill the babies in the
womb any longer — you
are testing God

promote the Kingdom of God,

After morning Mass
R. Holding on and letting go —
To me and from the Blue Books I
see us as the empty vessel ready
to be filled —
Prayer for Union with Jesus
Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.
I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.
I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.
When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.
-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994
When I go to Mass I come ready
to be filled
I go to the Blessed Sacrament for
adoration ready to receive more and
more an abundant outpouring of
When I read the Word — I want His
word living in me — I prayed for
this in the Holy Spirit Novena —
Prayer for the Word Alive in our Hearts —
Openness to receive His gifts —
Eager to come —
Wanting God to love so deeply in
Open — going to the Eucharist —
ready to be filled
Confession — wanting forgiveness —
eager for His grace —
Knowing the Presence of God in
me — being sensitive to His
knowing with tears My love of
the Eucharist —
knowing how one I am with
God pleading for grace for
the world at the Consecration
of the Mass
"Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul.
Come into my heart and permeate my soul.
Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart."
Always — an empty vessel —
ready to be filled —
Free will —
It is me
Trusting in God
Wanting peace, love and joy to be
found in Him
A snow plow —
letting go of unfinished relationships —
that can keep us clogged —
make us angry and can
stop us from being an "empty
vessel, ready to be filled"
To me Mass is where I go to be filled
by Him — filled with light —
smiling at others
giving to others
Love of God
Love of others —
Being a victim — living like this
makes a person closed — like
a can with the lid on it —
Ready to be filled
Thirsting — Longing
Ready to receive
Ready to give to others
If somebody takes off lid —
song of singing the victim
God has blessed us abundantly
God wants us to look at Jesus
on the cross
Be like Jesus
Jesus gave His all
Jesus gives us the Church
Jesus gives us baptism
Jesus gives us the Eucharist
Jesus gives us confession
Jesus gave us His all to His death
on the cross
Jesus came to this earth
Jesus gave us Himself
Jesus ———————> Giving
Loving is Giving
Prayer from St. Ignatius
Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
To give and not to count the cost;
To fight and not to heed the wounds;
To toil and not to seek for rest;
To labor and not to ask for any reward,
Save that of knowing
that I am doing your will.
Prayer of St Ignatius
Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Permit me not to be separated from Thee
From the wicked foe defend me
at the hour of my death call me
and bid me come to Thee
That with Thy saints I may praise Thee
For ever and ever. Amen.
Sing: Take Lord Receive
Selfishness is slavery to the evil
Jesus showed us His selflessness
“Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in a love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the mornings, what you will do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.”
Discerning the Spirits
The Holy Spirit leads us to peace, love
and joy —
The more one advances in the mystical
life — the more we are so
one in God
emptying ourselves as Christ on
Letting go of inordinate attachments —
Trust in God
Love for God and others
Sin hurts our relationship with
God and others
The evil one wants us sad, divided
disharmonious, isolated —
selfish - angry, prideful,
Being filled by God
To be filled by God
we must be open
we can't be clogged
Stars are beautiful —
they shine and give light
Being full of light for us comes from
being filled with God's life
Remember the talents message —
do we take our talents
bury them and give stingily to others
or punish others and give
nothing at all
Christ came to show us how He gave
He gave to His death on the cross —
He gave His body
He gave His Blood
His body was beaten
He gave —
Christ taught us about giving
Christ taught us to be a servant
Sing: Come to me Lord and possess my soul
Take Lord and receive all my liberty —
my memory, my understanding and
my entire will — all I have and possess.
Thou has given all to me.
To Thee, Oh Lord, I return it
All is Thine —
Dispose of it wholly according
to Thy will —
Give me Thy love and Thy grace,
for this is sufficient for me —
How can you change — when you
won't ever look at your faults —
From St. Ignatius
Man is created to praise, reverence
and serve God our Lord, and by this
means to save his soul.

Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations; baptise them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all the commands I gave you. And look, I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.’
Psalm 19: 2-5
day discourses of it to day,
night to night hands on the knowledge.
No utterance at all, no speech,
not a sound to be heard,
but from the entire earth the design stands out,
this message reaches the whole world.
High above, he pitched a tent for the sun,
who comes forth from his pavilion like a bridegroom,
delights like a champion in the course to be run.
Matthew 9: 13
Go and learn the meaning of the words: Mercy is what pleases me, not sacrifice. And indeed I came to call not the upright, but sinners.’
Psalm 118: 4-5
Let those who fear Yahweh say,
‘His faithful love endures for ever.’
In my distress I called to Yahweh,

I know my own

Blessed are the merciful:
they shall have mercy shown them.

At your right hand, Lord,
he shatters kings when his anger breaks out.
Revelation 3: 20
Look, I am standing at the door, knocking. If one of you hears me calling and opens the door, I will come in to share a meal at that persons side.
Psalm 84: 9
God, our shield, look,
and see the face of your anointed.
Mark 11: 23-24
In truth I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, "Be pulled up and thrown into the sea," with no doubt in his heart, but believing that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. I tell you, therefore, everything you ask and pray for, believe that you have it already, and it will be yours.
Sing: Immaculate Mary
Psalm 129: 7
never to fill the reaper's arm nor the binder's lap.
1 John 3: 2
My dear friends,
we are already God’s children,
but what we shall be in the future
has not yet been revealed.
We are well aware that when he appears
we shall be like him,
because we shall see him as he really is.
Matthew 5: 8-10
Blessed are the pure in heart:
they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers:
they shall be recognised
as children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted
in the cause of uprightness:
the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
Mark 7: 31-37
Returning from the territory of Tyre, he went by way of Sidon towards the Lake of Galilee, right through the Decapolis territory. And they brought him a deaf man who had an impediment in his speech; and they asked him to lay his hand on him. He took him aside to be by themselves, away from the crowd, put his fingers into the man's ears and touched his tongue with spittle. Then looking up to heaven he sighed; and he said to him, 'Ephphatha,' that is, 'Be opened.' And his ears were opened, and at once the impediment of his tongue was loosened and he spoke clearly. And Jesus ordered them to tell no one about it, but the more he insisted, the more widely they proclaimed it. Their admiration was unbounded, and they said, 'Everything he does is good, he makes the deaf hear and the dumb speak.'
Isaiah 50: 4c-5
Morning by morning
he makes my ear alert
to listen like a disciple.
Lord Yahweh has opened my ear
and I have not resisted,
I have not turned away.
O God grant us mercy and forgiveness —
O God help us to be holy —
There is a time for everything —
We are here to die to those things
not likened to God and live
more the resurrected life —
There is a time to give —
we want to do God's will —
this is our guide —
We are to be formed more and
more in the image and
likeness of God
To be molded likened to Jesus —
To walk in the light —
To be open —
To be filled by God —
To go to Church to be filled and to spread
His light to others —
Mark 2: 18-22John’s disciples and the Pharisees were keeping a fast, when some people came to him and said to him, ‘Why is it that John’s disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not? Jesus replied, ‘Surely the bridegroom’s attendants cannot fast while the bridegroom is still with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. But the time will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then, on that day, they will fast. No one sews a piece of unshrunken cloth on an old cloak; otherwise, the patch pulls away from it, the new from the old, and the tear gets worse. And nobody puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost and the skins too. No! New wine into fresh skins!’
I saw a Curious George show and the
snake in it shed its skin —
We are to die to the things not likened
to God to live more the resurrected
life in Him —
Proverbs 31: 30-31
Shin Charm is deceitful, and beauty empty;
the woman who fears Yahweh is the one to praise.
Taw Give her a share in what her hands have worked for,
and let her works tell her praises at the city gates.
all that is good, all that is perfect, is given us from above; it comes down from the Father of all light; with him there is no such thing as alteration, no shadow caused by change.
By his own choice he gave birth to us by the message of the truth so that we should be a sort of first-fruits of all his creation.
so do away with all impurities and remnants of evil. Humbly welcome the Word which has been planted in you and can save your souls. But you must do what the Word tells you and not just listen to it and deceive yourselves.
Pure, unspoilt religion, in the eyes of God our Father, is this: coming to the help of orphans and widows in their hardships, and keeping oneself uncontaminated by the world.
John 6: 60-69
After hearing it, many of his followers said, ‘This is intolerable language. How could anyone accept it?’ Jesus was aware that his followers were complaining about it and said, ‘Does this disturb you? What if you should see the Son of man ascend to where he was before?
‘It is the spirit that gives life,
the flesh has nothing to offer.
The words I have spoken to you are spirit
and they are life.
‘But there are some of you who do not believe.’ For Jesus knew from the outset who did not believe and who was to betray him. He went on, ‘This is why I told you that no one could come to me except by the gift of the Father.’ After this, many of his disciples went away and accompanied him no more.
Then Jesus said to the Twelve, ‘What about you, do you want to go away too?’ Simon Peter answered, ‘Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the message of eternal life, and we believe; we have come to know that you are the Holy One of God.’
Suffering brings us to our knees —
We are afraid of death —
We see God's hand touching us in
We must embrace we are going to
What happens after a person
The priest said on the other
side of the casket —
God has a plan for us
God wants us to love — not hate —
We are unique — God gave each
of us a call to do a certain
work — no one can contribute
as God called us to
Life is a gift —
God created us to serve Him —
We do not even own our own bodies
We are here to serve God —
The world wants us to forget this Plan
God has for us
The devil wants us selfish —
We are here to be converted — to
change — to die to those
things not likened to God, to be
more likened to Him —
We are to be disciples of Jesus —
listening to Him and responding
to God's call to us and the Plan
of the Father —
to say "yes" as Mary said "yes" to
God the Father's Plan for why
He created us
Ask God for the grace to follow this plan —
Ask God for the grace to serve Him
Why did God make me?
God called me by name
God wants me humble, obedient to Him —
God wants me to obey the commandments —
God wants me to be meek and tender of heart —
not combatal —
God called me
God gave me talents
Jesus washed the feet of His disciples
Jesus gives us the Eucharist
John 15: 14-17
You are my friends,
if you do what I command you.
I shall no longer call you servants,
because a servant does not know
the master’s business;
I call you friends,
because I have made known to you
everything I have learnt from my Father.
You did not choose me,
no, I chose you;
and I commissioned you
to go out and to bear fruit,
fruit that will last;
so that the Father will give you
anything you ask him in my name.
My command to you
is to love one another.
Jesus obeyed the will of His Father
"Thy will be done"
Matthew 26: 30-46
After the psalms had been sung they left for the Mount of Olives. Then Jesus said to them, ‘You will all fall away from me tonight, for the scripture says: I shall strike the shepherd and the sheep of the flock will be scattered, but after my resurrection I shall go ahead of you to Galilee.’ At this, Peter said to him, ‘Even if all fall away from you, I will never fall away.’ Jesus answered him, ‘In truth I tell you, this very night, before the cock crows, you will have disowned me three times.’ Peter said to him, ‘Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you.’ And all the disciples said the same.
Then Jesus came with them to a plot of land called Gethsemane; and he said to his disciples, ‘Stay here while I go over there to pray.’ He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee with him. And he began to feel sadness and anguish.
Then he said to them, ‘My soul is sorrowful to the point of death. Wait here and stay awake with me.’ And going on a little further he fell on his face and prayed. ‘My Father,’ he said, ‘if it is possible, let this cup pass me by. Nevertheless, let it be as you, not I, would have it.’ He came back to the disciples and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, ‘So you had not the strength to stay awake with me for one hour? Stay awake, and pray not to be put to the test. The spirit is willing enough, but human nature is weak.’ Again, a second time, he went away and prayed: ‘My Father,’ he said, ‘if this cup cannot pass by, but I must drink it, your will be done!’ And he came back again and found them sleeping, their eyes were so heavy. Leaving them there, he went away again and prayed for the third time, repeating the same words. Then he came back to the disciples and said to them, ‘You can sleep on now and have your rest. Look, the hour has come when the Son of man is to be betrayed into the hands of sinners. Get up! Let us go! Look, my betrayer is not far away.’
Mark 14: 26-42
After the psalms had been sung they left for the Mount of Olives. And Jesus said to them, 'You will all fall away, for the scripture says: I shall strike the shepherd and the sheep will be scattered; however, after my resurrection I shall go before you into Galilee.' Peter said, 'Even if all fall away, I will not.' And Jesus said to him, 'In truth I tell you, this day, this very night, before the cock crows twice, you will have disowned me three times.' But he repeated still more earnestly, 'If I have to die with you, I will never disown you.' And they all said the same.
They came to a plot of land called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, ‘Stay here while I pray.’ Then he took Peter and James and John with him. And he began to feel terror and anguish. And he said to them, ‘My soul is sorrowful to the point of death. Wait here, and stay awake.’ And going on a little further he threw himself on the ground and prayed that, if it were possible, this hour might pass him by. ‘Abba, Father!’ he said, ‘For you everything is possible. Take this cup away from me. But let it be as you, not I, would have it.’ He came back and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, ‘Simon, are you asleep? Had you not the strength to stay awake one hour? Stay awake and pray not to be put to the test. The spirit is willing enough, but human nature is weak.’ Again he went away and prayed, saying the same words. And once more he came back and found them sleeping, their eyes were so heavy; and they could find no answer for him. He came back a third time and said to them, ‘You can sleep on now and have your rest. It is all over. The hour has come. Now the Son of man is to be betrayed into the hands of sinners. Get up! Let us go! My betrayer is not far away.’
Judas Betrayed Jesus
Jesus was arrested
We are to obey God's will
Matthew 8: 21-23
Another man, one of the disciples, said to him, ‘Lord, let me go and bury my father first.’ But Jesus said, ‘Follow me, and leave the dead to bury their dead.’
Then he got into the boat followed by his disciples.
John 4: 34
But Jesus said: My food is to do the will of the one who sent me, and to complete his work.
John 6: 38
because I have come from heaven, not to do my own will, but to do the will of him who sent me.
Some angels fell —
they said "I will not serve"
Revelation 12: 7
And now war broke out in heaven, when Michael with his angels attacked the dragon. The dragon fought back with his angels,
Revelation 20: 9-10
They came swarming over the entire country and besieged the camp of the saints, which is the beloved City. But fire rained down on them from heaven and consumed them. Then the devil, who led them astray, was hurled into the lake of fire and sulphur, where the beast and the false prophet are, and their torture will not come to an end, day or night, forever and ever.
Adam and Eve disobeyed God
We are to obey God

"What am I doing for Christ?"

Pray for the grace to obey God —
The retribution of God from heaven is being revealed against the ungodliness and injustice of human beings who in their injustice hold back the truth. For what can be known about God is perfectly plain to them, since God has made it plain to them: ever since the creation of the world, the invisible existence of God and his everlasting power have been clearly seen by the mind's understanding of created things. And so these people have no excuse: they knew God and yet they did not honour him as God or give thanks to him, but their arguments became futile and their uncomprehending minds were darkened. While they claimed to be wise, in fact they were growing so stupid that they exchanged the glory of the immortal God for an imitation, for the image of a mortal human being, or of birds, or animals, or crawling things.
That is why God abandoned them in their inmost cravings to filthy practices of dishonouring their own bodies- because they exchanged God's truth for a lie and have worshipped and served the creature instead of the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen
That is why God abandoned them to degrading passions: why their women have exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural practices; and the men, in a similar fashion, too, giving up normal relations with women, are consumed with passion for each other, men doing shameful things with men and receiving in themselves due reward for their perversion.
In other words, since they would not consent to acknowledge God, God abandoned them to their unacceptable thoughts and indecent behaviour. And so now they are steeped in all sorts of injustice, rottenness, greed and malice; full of envy, murder, wrangling, treachery and spite, libellers, slanderers, enemies of God, rude, arrogant and boastful, enterprising in evil, rebellious to parents, without brains, honour, love or pity. They are well aware of God's ordinance: that those who behave like this deserve to die-yet they not only do it, but even applaud others who do the same.
So no matter who you are, if you pass judgement you have no excuse. It is yourself that you condemn when you judge others, since you behave in the same way as those you are condemning. We are well aware that people who behave like that are justly condemned by God. But you-when you judge those who behave like this while you are doing the same yourself-do you think you will escape God's condemnation? Or are you not disregarding his abundant goodness, tolerance and patience, failing to realise that this generosity of God is meant to bring you to repentance? Your stubborn refusal to repent is only storing up retribution for yourself on that Day of retribution when God's just verdicts will be made known. He will repay everyone as their deeds deserve. For those who aimed for glory and honour and immortality by persevering in doing good, there will be eternal life; but for those who out of jealousy have taken for their guide not truth but injustice, there will be the fury of retribution. Trouble and distress will come to every human being who does evil-Jews first, but Greeks as well; glory and honour and peace will come to everyone who does good-Jews first, but Greeks as well. There is no favouritism with God.
Sin is hurting our relationship
with God —
Sin is ingratitude to God
Matthew 25: 26-31
But his master answered him, "You wicked and lazy servant! So you knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered? Well then, you should have deposited my money with the bankers, and on my return I would have got my money back with interest. So now, take the talent from him and give it to the man who has the ten talents. For to everyone who has will be given more, and he will have more than enough; but anyone who has not, will be deprived even of what he has. As for this good–for–nothing servant, throw him into the darkness outside, where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth."
‘When the Son of man comes in his glory, escorted by all the angels, then he will take his seat on his throne of glory.
How can we hurt our relationship with
Jesus who loves us so much He
gives us Himself in the Eucharist —
Jesus gives us confession because He
wants us so one with Him —
When we hurt our relationship with God
we are miserable — because what
makes us happy is union with God —
The more deeply united to God the happier
we are —
The more we sin, hurt others — we
hurt our relationship with God and
we are miserable when we are
not close to God
What we do to others, we do to God —
God intends us to love Him and love
When we are selfish and isolated —
hurting others — we are
miserable, we hurt our
relationship with God
Song: Why Do We Hurt the Ones we Love
Here are the steps we took, which are suggested as a program of recovery:
1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol, that our lives had
2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God
as we understood Him.
4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact
nature of our wrongs.
6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to
make amends to them all.
9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to
do so would injure them or others.
10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong
promptly admitted it.
11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious
contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge
of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps,
we tried to carry this message to alcoholics,
and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul
Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.
Let's look at Mary's "yes"
Luke 1: 26-56
In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the House of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. He went in and said to her, ‘Rejoice, you who enjoy God’s favour! The Lord is with you.’ She was deeply disturbed by these words and asked herself what this greeting could mean, but the angel said to her, ‘Mary, do not be afraid; you have won God’s favour. Look! You are to conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you must name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David; he will rule over the House of Jacob for ever and his reign will have no end.’ Mary said to the angel, ‘But how can this come about, since I have no knowledge of man?’ The angel answered, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will cover you with its shadow. And so the child will be holy and will be called Son of God. And I tell you this too: your cousin Elizabeth also, in her old age, has conceived a son, and she whom people called barren is now in her sixth month, for nothing is impossible to God.’ Mary said, ‘You see before you the Lord’s servant, let it happen to me as you have said.’ And the angel left her.
Mary set out at that time and went as quickly as she could into the hill country to a town in Judah. She went into Zechariah’s house and greeted Elizabeth. Now it happened that as soon as Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. She gave a loud cry and said, ‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord? Look, the moment your greeting reached my ears, the child in my womb leapt for joy. Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.’
And Mary said:
My soul proclaims
the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
in God my Saviour;
because he has looked upon
the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty
has done great things for me.
Holy is his name,
and his faithful love extends age after age
to those who fear him.
He has used the power of his arm,
he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes
from their thrones
and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things,
sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help
of Israel his servant,
mindful of his faithful love
—according to the promise
he made to our ancestors—
of his mercy to Abraham
and to his descendants for ever.
Mary stayed with her some three months and then went home.
We see the Father's Plan —

Mary through the power of the Holy Spirit

Luke 8: 19-21
His mother and his brothers came looking for him, but they could not get to him because of the crowd. He was told, 'Your mother and brothers are standing outside and want to see you.' But he said in answer, 'My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and put it into practice.'
We meditate on the 3 classes of men
of St. Ignatius
Do we do a work that promotes satan's kingdom —
or God's Kingdom
Do we purely work in humility —
not attached to inordinate attachments
out of love for God
out of service to build God's Kingdom —
Do we keep the vision of God before us —
serve, work for building what
God wants or
do we try to "save face"
do we try to "promote ourselves"
do we work out anger — unfinished
business, jealousies —
Do we act for the honor and glory
of God because we
love Him so much and want
to serve Him
Pray through the intercession of Mary
to place us under the standard
of her Son
Read the Discernment of Spirits —
Are we listening to the Holy Spirit that leads
us to peace, love and joy —
doing God's will —
Do we listen to satan —
that leads us to isolation,
misery, willfulness —
not serving and loving God and others

John 19: 25-27
Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then to the disciple he said, ‘This is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.
John 20; 19-21
In the evening of that same day, the first day of the week, the doors were closed in the room where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews. Jesus came and stood among them. He said to them, ‘Peace be with you,’ and, after saying this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples were filled with joy at seeing the Lord, and he said to them again, ‘Peace be with you.
‘As the Father sent me,
so am I sending you.’
Luke 24: 50-53
Then he took them out as far as the outskirts of Bethany, and raising his hands he blessed them. Now as he blessed them, he withdrew from them and was carried up to heaven. They worshipped him and then went back to Jerusalem full of joy; and they were continually in the Temple praising God.
Romans 8: 18-25
In my estimation, all that we suffer in the present time is nothing in comparison with the glory which is destined to be disclosed for us, for the whole creation is waiting with eagerness for the children of God to be revealed. It was not for its own purposes that creation had frustration imposed on it, but for the purposes of him who imposed it—with the intention that the whole creation itself might be freed from its slavery to corruption and brought into the same glorious freedom as the children of God. We are well aware that the whole creation, until this time, has been groaning in labour pains. And not only that: we too, who have the first–fruits of the Spirit, even we are groaning inside ourselves, waiting with eagerness for our bodies to be set free. In hope, we already have salvation; in hope, not visibly present, or we should not be hoping—nobody goes on hoping for something which is already visible. But having this hope for what we cannot yet see, we are able to wait for it with persevering confidence.
1 Corinthians 15: 20-28
In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first–fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first–fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. But when it is said everything is subjected, this obviously cannot include the One who subjected everything to him. When everything has been subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the One who has subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.
I Love You
April 13, 1994
Words of Jesus. Read before the Tabernacle.
Jesus: How, child, do I, Jesus, tell you I love you? You hold on to silly things when God is in your midst and is ardently loving you. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I am writing to each precious child this day. I am on fire for love of you. I remain in the Eucharist to be with you with My ardent love. I did not want to leave My beloved ones at the Last Supper. I love you so, My dear and ardently loved children. I remain with you this day in the Blessed Sacrament, the same Jesus Who died a brutal death on the Cross.
Do you know I am truly present there? Do you know that God waits every day for you in the tabernacle? Do you comprehend even a minute amount of My love? You will never know of how I love you on earth.
I, Jesus, truly the Son of God, came to earth a man and suffered a brutal death for love of you. I love you so much! I remain with you this day. I long for your love. I want you to come and be with Me in front of the tabernacle. I wait, I yearn for you to come and whisper your love to Me. I am a person and I love you this day, with such an ardent on-fire love! No human could ever compare a speck to My love for you.
I wait, little ones, in the tabernacle. I wait for you to come and receive Me in Communion. I want you to want Me so much you cannot wait to come and receive Me. I want to be the love, the center of your life!
I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am writing to you this day. I want to possess your very soul and live in you. I have all you need, sweet ones. Oh, you are so blind! I long for your union with Me. I wrote the book of love. I instituted it, yet you go to the world for your love and do not even come to Me! Oh, I love you, little ones. Little ones, beloved of the Father, loved by the Holy Spirit, mothered by My very own mother! What more can I say? The rest is up to you!
I give you your will with such love and I want your love freely given. I am God. What do you think you could ever need that I do not give you? I am the Savior of this world. I am Jesus, the Son of God. I am waiting for you. I am longing for you. I am yearning for you. I am God. I have all you ever will need!
Surrender this life to Me. Pray My Prayer for Union with Me. I want to possess your soul and operate from your very being. I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am Who am. I died and rose on the third day.
Harken to My call, harken to My pleading. Spend your days in love with Me. Nothing matters unless it is rooted in Me and rooted in My love. I am the Son of God. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I love you with the tenderest love. I am waiting this day for just you, My beloved one. Come to Me for I am the tenderest of all hearts. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
- God's Blue Book,
Volume 2 April 13, 1994
From Blue Book I
Jesus wants to share His love with you. He comes in these letters to tell you how you can be in intimate union with Him.
All of us possess everything we need to have an intimate union with Him. He has written to me since October of 1991. For at least a year I sat in front of the tabernacle and begged him to talk to me. I wanted words. I prayed to the Holy Spirit and begged and begged Him to baptize me. After a long and seemingly endless search, trying to hear God, He told me to "feed the hungry." For six weeks this was all I heard. I thought maybe I wasn't feeding my children well or eating well enough myself. What a long wait for three words! At long last one day, as I was writing to Jesus, I received a letter back. He told me, "I am Jesus, Son of the Living God." I did not want to write this but it kept coming-and so many other messages. I knew nothing of anyone getting messages. I wrote them, reluctantly, and hid my notebooks. The letters kept coming-a lot in the night-and I would be awakened by long letters which I felt compelled to get up and write down. I read these letters privately and my life began to change. I felt a new life within me.
He taught me of His fervent love and how truly present He was. He taught me how precious I was to Him. Over and over again He would call me His precious child and tell me how He loved me, how He clothed me with dignity and honor. He told me over and over how He was right by my side always. He is teaching me to give up all fear and to trust in Him. He is teaching me to let go of myself and let Him run my life. I am trying every day to do His will.
He is also telling you in your heart all you need to know. He has all the answers for you there in your heart. You must be silent and go to Him so you can hear His words for you.
Sit in front of the tabernacle and be with Him. Sit and be open and just be with Him. Read these letters there. These are Jesus' love letters to you. Sit in front of the tabernacle and let Him talk to you. Sit silent awhile. Read these letters part of the time. Open any page and He will talk to you. Do not read this like a book, cover to cover. Just open to a page and read that page. That is the way He speaks to you.
