November 30, 2007

           

                I prayed 6 hours today and
                    I was before the exposed
                    Eucharist —

                It looked like it did in the
                    great vision of March 26, 1996

 

                God manifested Himself to me


                I then was told to leave at 3:00
                    and to fax the message to
                    Doris on US 1 —

                As I drove a red truck came behind
                    me — it was so big and aggressive —
                    there were 3 lanes and I was in the far
                    left lane —

                I told Kathleen - this guy is
                    going to hit us —

                The lanes were full and he kept
                    coming behind me

                I said "I'm afraid, Kathleen,
                    he must be on drugs"

                She said "get over"
                    I said "I can't"

                He then went to the center lane and
                    accelerated to about 100
                    miles an hour

                He then hit a guy in the right
                    lane and ended up on the
                    side walk —
                pieces of his truck flying —
                    the other cars pieces
                    were flying


                He looked like he had on
                    some black weird
                    goggle thing


                Jesus told me exactly to leave

                He said

                    "the very hairs of your
                    head are numbered"

                Not one thing hit us —

                If I had gotten over — We
                    would have both been
                    killed —
                    His truck was big and red
                    like a tank

                We could have been the car
                    he hit

                I have learned that in
                    an instant we could
                    have been dead —

                Our decisions to go or not
                    go can be this vital,
                    but God is watching
                    us — He allows suffering,
                    He teaches us lessons,
                    He calls us to faith —

                This writing He gave with
                    no eraser marks after He
                    showed me His magnificent
                    beauty and presence —

                    He calls us to faith —
                    The car I put on yesterday
                        was this

  

                   

                    He is unveiling secrets in
                our lives to take us deeper
                into the hidden mysteries
                and to unveil some of the
                imperfections satan works
                through because of our
                wounded human nature —
                so we can be more one
                    intimate with Him
                    intimate with others   

                    operating as a strong
                        body in the body of Christ

                A blind man doesn't see

                Blaming our stone heart on
                    somebody in our present
                    life can lead us to a
                    life of isolation,
                    argumentation and
                    pain

                God wants us to be holy —

                God wants us to die to
                    our imperfections

                Jesus, the Son of God —
                    died for our sins —

                In dying to our imperfections
                    we can have greater
                    life in Him and be
                    more perfected as
                    our Heavenly Father.

                There is one way —
                    God is the Creator
                    We are the creatures

                We are wounded

                Jesus took on all those
                    wounds on the cross and
                    He died with these
                        WOUNDS
   


 

                It said in the Lazarus
                    scripture — Jesus
                    was perturbed —

                Think of how Jesus knew
                    He would die for
                    all our sins and

                in our pride we would
                    hold onto wounds
                    passed on to us like
                    trophies.

                Jesus was wounded
                    on the cross

                    He died with all these
                        wounds on His bare
                        body


 


                Now He gives us His
                    Body and Blood to eat
                    and drink in the Eucharist
                    under the appearance
                    of Bread and wine

                This mission is God's mission
                    nobody could write this
                    with no eraser marks —

                God is giving us insights
                    to heal

                Spreading the consecration
                    to the Hearts of Jesus and
                    Mary — helps us to be
                    pure and more one —
                living in God's will

                The Shepherds of Christ is a major instrument
                    at the end of the century
                    begun by Jesus to
                    have this era of peace
                    Mary told us about at
                    Fatima.

                We need your help to
                    pay for and send the
                    Priestly Newsletter
                    on Mary.

               

 

               
                   

               
 

  
Work in us Lord

                Work in us Lord —

                Give us the Medicine of Immortality

                Let the people locked in
                    pain be made free

                Let hardened hearts go to
                    the healing, loving
                    Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

                Oh Blessed Trinity You show
                    us perfection.

                    Three Persons in one God.

                Oh Blessed Trinity — help us.

                Oh Blessed Trinity outpour
                    Your healing grace —

                Give us grace to know Your love

                Help us not to be prideful.

 


 

                In baptism our knowing and loving
                capacity is elevated —

                We can reason we will do good —
                We can choose to love rather than
                    to not love. It is an act of
                    the will.

                We see imperfectly.

                The Eucharist helps heal our wounded
                    human nature —

                We are to seek to act more and more in
                    the image of God —
                We are to love rather than be
                    unloving — we have a will —

                Developing unloving habits is
                    foolish —

                We were created to be more and
                    more like God —
                    God is love

                To continue angry, patterned
                    habits at 40 is not smart.
                    When we are hard to get
                    along with angry, combatal —
                    we are not likened to God
                    who is love —

                God wants us to relate
                God wants us to love
                We seek the truth
                Jesus is the way, the truth and the life

                Look at our genealogy —

                Why does God tell us genealogy in
                    the scripture.

                Mary appeared to tell us her children
                    are going into hell —

                    Why won't you listen?

 

Proverbs 30: 7-33

Two things I beg of you,
    do not grudge me them before I die:
keep falsehood and lies far from me,
    give me neither poverty nor riches,
    grant me only my share of food,
for fear that, surrounded by plenty, I should fall away
    and say, ‘Yahweh—who is Yahweh?’
or else, in destitution, take to stealing
    and profane the name of my God.

Do not blacken a slave’s name to his master,
    lest he curse you, and you suffer for it.

There is a breed of person that curses his father
    and does not bless his mother;
a breed that, laying claim to purity,
    has not yet been cleansed of its filth;
a breed haughty of eye,
    with disdain in every glance;
a breed with swords for teeth,
    with knives for jaws,
devouring the oppressed from the earth
    and the needy from the land.

The leech has two daughters: ‘Give! Give!’
    There are three insatiable things,
    four, indeed, that never say, ‘Enough!’
Sheol, the barren womb,
    earth which can never have its fill of water,
    fire which never says, ‘Enough!’

The eye which looks jeeringly on a father,
    and scorns the obedience due to a mother,
    will be pecked out by the ravens of the valley,
    and eaten by the vultures.

There are three things beyond my comprehension,
    four, indeed, that I do not understand:
the way of an eagle through the skies,
    the way of a snake over the rock,
    the way of a ship in mid–ocean,
    the way of a man with a girl.

This is how an adulteress behaves:
    she eats, then wipes her mouth and says,
    ‘I have done nothing wrong!’

There are three things at which the earth trembles,
    four, indeed, which it cannot endure:
a slave become king,
    a brute gorged with food,
a hateful woman wed at last,
    a servant girl inheriting from her mistress.

There are four creatures little on the earth,
    though they are wisest of the wise:
ants, a race with no strength,
    yet in the summer they make sure of their food;
the coneys, a race without defences,
    yet they make their home in the rocks;
locusts, which have no king,
    yet they all march in good order;
lizards, which you can catch in your hand,
    yet they frequent the palaces of kings.

There are three things of stately tread,
    four, indeed, of stately walk:
 the lion, bravest of beasts,
    he will draw back from nothing;
a vigorous cock, a he–goat,
    and the king when he harangues his people.

If you have been foolish enough to fly into a passion
    and now have second thoughts, lay your hand on your lips.
For by churning the milk you produce butter,
    by wringing the nose you produce blood,
    and by whipping up anger you produce strife.

 

John 11: 28-44

   When she had said this, she went and called her sister Mary, saying in a low voice, ‘The Master is here and wants to see you.’ Hearing this, Mary got up quickly and went to him. Jesus had not yet come into the village; he was still at the place where Martha had met him. When the Jews who were in the house comforting Mary saw her get up so quickly and go out, they followed her, thinking that she was going to the tomb to weep there.

   Mary went to Jesus, and as soon as she saw him she threw herself at his feet, saying, ‘Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.’ At the sight of her tears, and those of the Jews who had come with her, Jesus was greatly distressed, and with a profound sigh he said, ‘Where have you put him?’ They said, ‘Lord, come and see.’ Jesus wept; and the Jews said, ‘See how much he loved him!’ But there were some who remarked, ‘He opened the eyes of the blind man. Could he not have prevented this man’s death?’ Sighing again, Jesus reached the tomb: it was a cave with a stone to close the opening. Jesus said, ‘Take the stone away.’ Martha, the dead man’s sister, said to him, ‘Lord, by now he will smell; this is the fourth day since he died.’ Jesus replied, ‘Have I not told you that if you believe you will see the glory of God?’ So they took the stone away. Then Jesus lifted up his eyes and said:

   Father, I thank you
       for hearing my prayer.
   I myself knew that you hear me always,
   but I speak
   for the sake of all these
      who are standing around me,
   so that they may believe
      it was you who sent me.

   When he had said this, he cried in a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come out!’ The dead man came out, his feet and hands bound with strips of material, and a cloth over his face. Jesus said to them, ‘Unbind him, let him go free.’

  

                I know Jesus gives this teaching
                    here and

  

  

                When you come to the retreats
                    in Florida and China —
                    great grace is released for
                    healing and for our mission —
                    I have watched people get healed
                        spiritually

 

                The human race has sinned.

                Jesus came to save a fallen race.
                To think we are perfect is silly.
                We are sinners and Jesus died and rose
                    so we could be saved. Jesus took
                    on a little human baby body.

                The Eucharist is the key —

                The living out of our baptismal promise
                    is giving our tainted hearts to the
                    pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary is
                    what Mary has told us we must
                    do to have holiness and peace.

                When I was little I had a terrible trauma —
                    my mom died when I was 5 years old —
                    when we have a shock like that we
                    can forget things — lose our memory
                    of good things —
                    Later on before I got the messages
                    I went to a hotel and just cried
                    about this awful loss.
                    I went to my mom's grave —
                    I tried to remember things at my old
                        house about her cancer and
                        I asked myself how I felt at home.

                I did a lot of praying and asking God
                    to open my heart.
                We have all kinds of wounds from
                    childhood —
                    pain inside
                    unfinished unmet needs

                Children of Alcoholics get together like
                    a support group, just to help
                    one another not be dysfunctional
                    because of bad patterns learned
                    at home.

                They try to have intimate relationships
                    and a lot of times choose a partner
                    to work out unfinished business and
                    he is a child of an alcoholic too
                    or maybe even an alcoholic.

                We all have hurts and bad patterns
                    we learned somewhere.

                In children of alcoholic groups —
                    many cannot go home for holidays —
                    In alcoholic homes usually there is
                    an enabler, an alcoholic —
                    a hero-child and a scapegoat-
                    child —

                When children were taught to live
                    in these roles — they do not
                    even know when they go home
                    at 40 or 50 they have problems
                    sometimes, before, during and
                    after holidays.

                Someone who has worked trying to
                    get healthy at 40 can go home
                    and have a scapegoat problem —
                    losing power for months
                    after Christmas —

                This pattern can repeat every time they
                    are around the family who plays
                    the "Smith dance" and you get in
                    like the child of the past - and
                    then have to work out all that
                    dysfunction — balance of lost power
                    on people you live with today.
                    Some people cause problems with
                    their new families before holidays just
                    to be empowered before they go home.

                Living in the dark why we don't
                    trust, feel, or talk has to be
                    looked at — not ignored chasing
                    people who really love us away
                    because we are triggered into
                    these dysfunctional roles and
                    then "bounce" on somebody
                    who is slow to answer.

                Men and women think different so
                    there are differences — major
                    differences there —

                Some people had moms and dads
                    that never really appreciated
                    their accomplishments

                    1) mom was running after an
                        alcoholic or dysfunctional
                        dad or VISA VERSA

                    2) mom and dad were wounded
                        and selfish working on
                        themselves

                    3) mom and dad were poor —
                        exhausted making ends
                        meet

                    4) mom and dad went to school
                    5) mom and dad took care of parents
                            |
                            |
                            |
                            |
                Lots of reasons - why children
                    are treated without the love
                    and attention they need

                Mom and dad were imperfect and so
                    was their mom and dad too and
                    so on

                Children who live in an alcoholic
                    or dysfunctional angry home
                    learn to scan the place to
                    see if it is safe

                Some have learned survival
                    tactics that took the kids
                    into isolation —
                    thwarted their social skills —
                    caused them to day dream
                        excessively
                    or to close off like a stone —
                        rock solid heart

                Some learned to hide pain —
                    to always be angry —
                    to look on the dark side —
                    to be suspicious —

                And when in adulthood some
                    "normal" person shows
                    them love — it feels so good
                    they cling like an ameba
                    wanting — more and more to
                    heal the wounded past

                They don't let "normal" people
                    go in and out of doors —
                    they want to make them
                    slavishly dependent —
                    use them like a baby and
                    a parent —
                    to help them be secure and
                        heal their life long
                        abandonment needs

                The key to everything is loving
                    like Jesus, growing in
                    our dependence on Jesus —
                   

                Our goal is heaven
                Our goal is a good goal

                Not our life lived like a wounded
                    child searching to get our
                    sick abandonment needs met by
                    using others —

                Social skills are to help promote
                    God's kingdom — love God —
                    love each other — grow in
                    more perfect love.

                In baptism our knowing and loving
                    capacity is elevated.

                People who do not interact in
                    intimate relationships with
                    others may be over-achievers
                    accomplishing great feats —

                In an alcoholic family — the disease
                    and dysfunction remains a secret —

                There is the secret and the denial!
                Denial keeps us stuck —

                Lies about trauma unhealed
                    is like Jesus says —
                    a milestone around our neck

                God is love —

                A man can be an aerospace genius
                    and can't even have an
                    intimate relationship —

                They can pride themselves on
                    their feats in the business
                    world and as soon as they try to
                    get along —
                    all these thwarted survival
                        techniques can come
                        out and the
                        other guy says —
                    "Oh I don't want this —
                        you are possessive
                        you are unreliable
                        you are negative, blaming
                            it on me

                    To get a simple job done —
                        you play ugly games
                        I don't want"

                    What games will you play to
                        try to get your wounded
                        heart healed —
                        baby games —
                        saying "I am perfect"
                                  "I know it all"

                    But never had one successful
                        intimate relationship with
                        another human person

                That is a sign when somebody
                    is 40 or 50 and never
                    had a good relationship
                    with another human person —

                If one came from a healthy
                    normal home — then they
                    can go into religious
                    life and be able to
                    be dependent on Jesus and
                    still deeply love the
                    souls Jesus gave their
                    life for —
                    See in love out of Jesus'
                    eyes — rather than
                    acting out selfish unmet
                    needs and looking at their
                    own "belly button" —
                rather than looking out of
                    Jesus' eyes giving
                    themselves to others —
                    Being a light for Jesus —
                    Growing more loving in
                        the spiritual life

                Jesus shows us Himself almost
                    naked on the cross —
                    He gave Himself —
                    the last beat of His Heart
                    the last drop of His blood —

                Jesus WAS WOUNDED
                Jesus LOVED — LOVED              

                Loved — Loved —

                Gave Himself for our sins —

                Today He gives us Himself —
                    the Medicine of Immortality —
                    to heal our wounded human
                    nature — He gives us His
                    Body and Blood in the Eucharist.

                We may have big problems —
                    like never having the opposite
                    sex approve of us —
                    our dad or mom criticized
                    us —
                    so we get tight if we are
                    dealing with a "man" if
                    a woman's father was always
                    criticizing her not
                    giving approval or visa versa

                I remember once Jesus
                    said even if a man approaches
                we may be very uncomfortable if
                    this is our problem —

                People may feel more comfortable
                    with the same sex etc. —

                Some may think if I give my all
                    to somebody then my unfinished
                    business will be healed and
                    then they give their all and
                    expect a payoff — then they get mad —
                    this is not just giving purely
                        for God's honor and glory

                Were we rejected by mom or dad
                    because of their imperfections?
                    Then we must - feel the
                        pain, forgive and move on.

                Do we want another to do what
                    only God can do —

                Are we possessive — jealous


                Eating is a big time —

                There is pleasure

                But some had much dysfunction
                    at home over eating —

                So to be safe — they want to
                    eat alone — the rest of
                    their lives — This is dysfunctional

                Jesus ate with His Apostles
                Jesus was seen eating
                Jesus put this in the scripture

                Receiving the Eucharist is to
                    help make us one
                God feeds us spiritually at His table —
                    with the Body and Blood of Jesus

                    How were parents in teaching
                    us about dating and dealing
                    with the opposite sex —
                    interacting as children?
                    How are we today in letting
                    go of problems with
                    interacting with the opposite
                    sex, authority, just to
                    do God's work.

                What stops men from being afraid
                    of being under a Bishop
                    so they join the priesthood
                    if called.

                In today's world — the world preaches
                    disobedience to authority
                    in many cases —
                    children are even taught on
                    cartoons to be #1 over
                    authority —
                and what happens —
                God has established the Church
                    on structure
                Jesus is the head
                God has made parents over children


                This world is rebellious


                How do people deal with sick
                    fear of abandonment needs —

                How do people deal with needs
                    that were not met where
                    they were not told they were loved.

                Do people get married to get
                    love — rather than give
                    love and when they don't
                    get what they want out
                    of a marriage —
                    get divorced —
                    hurting children —
                    getting married again to
                    get love for themselves
                    rather than — give love


                God gives us Himself in the Holy
                    Eucharist


                God gives us the perfect family
                    God the Father — our Father
                    Mary our Mother
                    Jesus, Son of God, our brother

                Blue Books teach us about
                    our heavenly Father
                    Mary our heavenly Mother
                    Jesus our brother —

                This is perfect family —
                Be perfect as our heavenly Father
                    is perfect


                As soon as somebody that is
                    severely wounded tries to
                    get intimate — if they
                    want the other to love them —
                    like their parents didn't do —
                    or their x-wife or x-husband
                    didn't do — they may
                    give a little and then think
                    (after they give a little)
                    now they (the other) will heal me —
                    now they (the other) will love me
                    now they (the other) will make me feel
                        good about myself


                Religious especially are to be
                    other focused —
                    going into religious life to
                    heal the wounded past is
                    not what the religious life
                    is about

                Priests, sisters, brothers are to
                    know deeply the heavenly
                    family and live to be perfected
                    more and more like the heavenly
                    Father
                    Their life is a gift to God
                Rooted in love — given as
                    a special spouse of
                    God
                To love others
                To give themselves for the
                    body of Christ

                To pray for the priests, the
                    Church and the world

                To see through the eyes of Jesus
                    at the world — not to be
                    self-focused and selfish

                Religious help make reparation
                    for the offenses against God —
                    religious realize their spouse
                    is Jesus

                They are busy about the flock
                They are busy about their relationship
                    with Jesus and
                    loving others through the
                    eyes of Jesus

                It was February 1998

                I remember Fr. Carter giving
                    a talk in Morrow — He was
                    not to go to prayer meetings —
                    after a while he gave a talk —

                He said he believed the Shepherd of Christ would
                    go down in the history of
                    the Church as one of the
                    greatest Movements to help
                    in the renewal of the Church
                    and the world.

                    Many people came to the
                Shepherds of Christ and were in it for themselves —
                At the end of the talk he cried and said
                "It's pay back time"
                "It's pay back time for all Jesus
                    has done for you with
                    the Blue Books and the Shepherds of Christ"

                God heals unfinished business,
                But if people become priests,
                    sisters and brothers and
                    expect to be as God wants —
                    they must develop more
                    and more the perfected
                    relationship with the
                    Trinity — knowing Mary their
                    Mother —

                Jesus as their Spouse
                Intimacy with the Holy Spirit —
                Knowing the communion of saints —
                    praying united to the Masses
                    going on around the world
                    being one in the family of
                    the Lord and bringing this love
                    to the Church, the body of
                    Christ —

                    Loving the body of Christ —
                    Seeing with the eyes of Jesus —
                    Being one in Him —
                    Praying united as one with
                        the members of the
                        Church

                    Strengthening the body —
                        with love and holiness


                Once there are wounds in our
                    heart — we want them
                    healed — we were created by
                    God to be pure in heart and
                    to get to heaven —
                    happiness lies in being possessed
                        by God

     

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

  


                God created us to have the fullness
                    of life in heaven —


                When there are wounds in our heart
                    we want them healed —
                    when we give ourselves in
                        marriage to Jesus — we are
                        to strive for purity —
                        oneness and His will
               
                Dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary —
                    fills the hungry soul

                The devil has worked to press
                    on people's imperfections
                    who are religious — so
                    some leave — some stay in
                    and become worldly, seeking
                    worldly pleasures —
                    some search for a substitute
                        to marriage (normal marriage)
                        and don't live their
                        vocation having deeper
                        intimacy with God — being
                        one with the angels and saints —
                        living deeply one with the body of Christ —
                        praying for it and helping to strengthen
                        it

     

Excerpt from November 29, 2007

                    A man went out with a life long
                desire to climb the highest mountain —
                on the way he met a smooth talker
                who tried to convince him to climb
                a lesser mountain. The first man became
                very tired from the journey to the high
                mountain of his dreams and thought
                "what the heck, it is easier and not
                so hard, closer and, the other man
                said just as good"

                    When he started up the mountain
                it was so much easier than the high
                mountain would have been —

                    He ascended it and there were
                trees, flowers, benches — even
                a food stand — there were water falls,
                games and men had turned the smaller mountain
                into a travelers attraction. As he
                went higher there were even lodging
                places and he stopped and said —
                "this wasn't my dream, but what
                the heck, I will abandon my life
                long dream for this because now I
                am frustrated and confused and this
                is how things are now, where once
                I had a vision of the high mountain
                now I have settled for this man-made
                attraction and the fun filled days"
                I trained for I knew it would be
                rigorous, now I live a life of ease,
                tasting allurements and bathing in
                sexual pleasures 'What a life!!'

                          End of excerpt from November 29, 2007

 


                Many stay stuck because of not wanting
                    to admit we need healing
                    spiritually — not admitting we
                    have these wounds around
                    loving intimately — so we
                    don't seek the healing as we
                    should from God — especially
                    the Eucharist — we don't have
                    a personal relationship with
                    God like the Blue Books tell
                    us and

                    We search and search and search

                Religious who are to teach
                    others more than anyone else
                    about God's love —
                    may be looking everywhere,
                    but God for deep
                    intimate love


                    Pride keeps us stuck —
                    We tell ourselves — we
                    are not wounded —
                    rather than we are wounded —
                    Holy Spirit heal me
                    Holy Spirit enlighten me

                Healing old spiritual wounds
                    (wounds needed to be healed
                    around loving, intimacy)
                    is how we get close to Jesus —
                    we become more capable of loving —
                    the more perfected we become


                As long as we have that one inordinate
                    attachment — we can use that
                    person - worldly thing that we
                    can substitute for Jesus


                We can have all these triggers
                    from unhealed relationships —
                    survival tactics we
                    use that we respond to —
                "like seeing hard looks like dad
                    gave when someone just
                    isn't feeling good and
                    we are off and running like
                    from childhood"

                People that really want to serve
                    Jesus — try to be in harmony
                    with their superior —
                    being in one mind and one heart
                    with the community working
                    as one in love — self-giving —
                    seeing through the eyes
                    of Jesus —

                Not selfish — self-focus wanting
                    the community to put up
                    with our ugly daily anger
                    punishing every one who
                    touches us.

                    Using passive-aggressive
                measures to control and manipulate
                is not love

                    Heal me, Holy Spirit
                    Heal me, Holy Spirit

                When we want oneness — we must
                    not be looking for others to heal
                    us — we are to go to Jesus —
                    Jesus is the healer

                If we open up our hearts to someone — we
                    can't expect the other to give them
                    what we need to be healed — if we are
                    a religious especially — we need God's
                    grace to heal our wounds regarding
                    love — God is the perfect bridegroom

                The Church is the bride of Jesus.
                We are members of the body of Christ as
                    members of the Church

                We are fed on the Body and Blood of
                    the Divine Bridegroom.

                Jesus is the Bridegroom of our soul —
                Jesus gives us the Mass — the sacrifice
                    of Calvary sacramentally made
                    present.

                Only Jesus can heal our wounds of
                    betrayal, love, but we must recognize
                    the wound — our
                    need for healing and not try to act like
                    wounded, blind babies, expecting
                    others who love us to heal us.


                We can be inordinately attached to others
                    as soon as they help us —
                    like going to the doctor day long if
                    he helps us.

                God heals the wounded human nature.

                A person who has not worked socially
                    with others — has to be humble
                    to learn —
                    rather than hard and prideful — in
                    their ignorance of learning to
                    deal with others in love —
                    giving and taking they may say —

                "Let those who use my work be
                    molded around my dysfunction —
                    I am not changing" —

                We are all imperfect —
                    in need of healing —

                Reactors to others ways who are
                    imperfect can get us in a bad way.

                A man had a very bad childhood
                    and was angry because his
                    dad was angry —
                    he scanned every situation
                    and tried to put his
                    unfinished business
                    on innocent others
                    trying to heal his wounds
                    and be happy —

                He was always unhappy because
                    he was severely wounded —
                    if he opened up a door to
                    another in trust and walked
                    away — he then hated them
                    because they were to heal
                    his wound so he never
                    would hurt again

                Slavishly dependent relationships —
                    come out of severely
                    wounded people — They
                    want to possess
                    another and use them for
                    fixing their old wounds —

                They can produce little
                    work for they seek
                    relationships to
                    heal them —

                    I will help do the work,
                but you must see I have
                been mad 40 years and put
                up with my 40 years
                of pain and then I will
                learn 40 years of social
                skills on you — I control —
                you give and then I will
                do the work of mailing
                a piece of mail —

                When I do it I will then be
                    mad all over again —
                    because I want you to
                    make me happy —
                    I work to get you to
                        fix me — therefore
                    sick games are played and
                    little work is done —

                    One person may want
                others to never really
                be happy because they
                are unhappy — they only
                become happy when they
                make somebody else hurt —
                this is sinful, unholy and
                unloving — it can be majorly
                co-dependent —

                    

   

Joyful Mysteries

 


 

                Annunciation

                (1)  Luke 1: 26-33

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.’

                (2)  Luke 1: 34-35

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.

                (3)  And lo — it was prophesized
                        there would be a Savior.

                (4)  A Song from Jesus

                (5)  And yet He tests our faith.

                (6)  He tries us and He teaches us
                        so we become more perfected.

                (7)  To say you are perfect is to be a fool.

                (8)  To listen and be taught is to help
                        us grow spiritually.

                (9)  We are the sinful children of Adam
                        and Eve — Mary is sinless.

              (10)  Sing:  Immaculate Mary

     

                Visitation

                (1)  Luke 1: 39-43

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?

                (2)  Luke 1: 46- 55

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.

  

                (3)  Mary has a pure heart.

                (4)  Our heart is tainted.

                (5)  Give your heart to Mary.

                (6)  Mary is the Spouse of the Holy Spirit.

                (7)  The Holy Spirit

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in My likeness. He performs this marvel within Mary's Immaculate Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My own Heart. In both Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master. All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!"

Reflection: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with our Mother, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us.

                (8)  Say  Come Holy Spirit Renew the Face of the Earth

                (9)  The baby in Elizabeth's womb leapt for joy.

              (10)  Mary's image head was broken
                        in Clearwater.
                      John the Baptist's head was
                        cut off.

   

                Birth of Jesus

                (1)  Luke 2:  1-7

Now it happened that at this time Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be made of the whole inhabited world. This census—the first—took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria, and everyone went to be registered, each to his own town. So Joseph set out from the town of Nazareth in Galilee for Judaea, to David’s town called Bethlehem, since he was of David’s House and line, in order to be registered together with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. Now it happened that, while they were there, the time came for her to have her child, and she gave birth to a son, her first–born. She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger because there was no room for them in the living–space.

                (2)  Luke 2: 8-14

In the countryside close by there were shepherds out in the fields keeping guard over their sheep during the watches of the night. An angel of the Lord stood over them and the glory of the Lord shone round them. They were terrified, but the angel said, ‘Do not be afraid. Look, I bring you news of great joy, a joy to be shared by the whole people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. And here is a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.’ And all at once with the angel there was a great throng of the hosts of heaven, praising God with the words: 

    Glory to God in the highest heaven, 
    and on earth peace for those he favours. 

                (3)  Luke 2: 15-20

    Now it happened that when the angels had gone from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, ‘Let us go to Bethlehem and see this event which the Lord has made known to us.’ So they hurried away and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger. When they saw the child they repeated what they had been told about him, and everyone who heard it was astonished at what the shepherds said to them. As for Mary, she treasured all these things and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds went back glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as they had been told.

                (4)  Jesus was born in such
                        poverty in a stable —
                    Even toddlers of 2 understand —
                        little babies in a
                        cradle

                (5)  Jesus came to teach even
                        little toddlers the
                        Christmas message —

                (6)  Angry people can be selfish
                        at Christmas.

                (7)  Christmas is a message of
                        love.

                (8)  Jesus, the Son of God, came
                        a baby in the womb of
                        a human person.

                (9)  God loves us so much —

              (10)  Jesus is the Savior of the human race.

  

                Prophesy of Simeon in the Temple

                (1)  Luke 2: 22-24

And when the day came for them to be purified in keeping with the Law of Moses, they took him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord—observing what is written in the Law of the Lord: Every first–born male must be consecrated to the Lord—and also to offer in sacrifice, in accordance with what is prescribed in the Law of the Lord, a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons.

                (2)  Luke 2: 25-32

Now in Jerusalem there was a man named Simeon. He was an upright and devout man; he looked forward to the restoration of Israel and the Holy Spirit rested on him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death until he had set eyes on the Christ of the Lord. Prompted by the Spirit he came to the Temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the Law required, he took him into his arms and blessed God; and he said:

    Now, Master, you are letting 
        your servant go in peace 
    as you promised; 
    for my eyes have seen the salvation 
    which you have made ready 
        in the sight of the nations; 
    a light of revelation for the gentiles 
    and glory for your people Israel.

                (3)  Luke 2: 33-35

As the child’s father and mother were wondering at the things that were being said about him, Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, ‘Look, he is destined for the fall and for the rise of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is opposed—and a sword will pierce your soul too—so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare.’

                (4)  Jesus is the Light of the World.

                (5)  Jesus is love.

                (6)  Let go to love —

                (7)  Satan's grip is paralyzing and crippling.

                (8)  May 13, 1993 - Cling To Me

Jesus: My dear child, if you stay close to Me, then I live in you and you live in Me. I am He Who created you and I love you with such an intensity that you will never know. My words are your truth. You must abide in My heart in all things. There is no room for doubt. My ways are steadfast, direct, and without error.

    You must stay rooted in Me to ward off the power of the evil one. His grip is paralyzing and crippling. His power is stronger every day.

    When you live in Me, I am in your heart and he has no power over Me. I am your God. I am your true lover. I want to protect you. I want to guard you from this force. Stay rooted firmly in Me and he will have no power.

    I am He Who comforts you. My hand is upon you. Hold tight to Me, My child. My eyes are fixed right on you. You are My most precious child. I love you as no other can. My arms are about you. My tenderness surrounds you. My love is in your heart. You go not alone. I walk with you.

    I share every aspect of your life with you. Cling to Me, feel My presence. It is warm and secure within your chest. There is no room for fear, for I cast out fear and bring you comfort and joy.

end of May 13, 1993 from Blue Book I

 

                (9)  Luke 3: 4-6

…as it is written in the book of sayings of Isaiah the prophet:
A voice of one that cries in the desert:
Prepare a way for the Lord,
make his paths straight!
Let every valley be filled in,
every mountain and hill be levelled,
winding ways be straightened
and rough roads made smooth,
and all humanity
will see the salvation of God.

                Finding of Jesus in the Temple

                (1)  Luke 2:  41-47

Every year his parents used to go to Jerusalem for the feast of the Passover. When he was twelve years old, they went up for the feast as usual. When the days of the feast were over and they set off home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem without his parents knowing it. They assumed he was somewhere in the party, and it was only after a day’s journey that they went to look for him among their relations and acquaintances. When they failed to find him they went back to Jerusalem looking for him everywhere. 

    It happened that, three days later, they found him in the Temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them, and asking them questions; and all those who heard him were astounded at his intelligence and his replies.

                (2)  Luke 2:  48-52

They were overcome when they saw him, and his mother said to him, ‘My child, why have you done this to us? See how worried your father and I have been, looking for you.’ He replied, ‘Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?’ But they did not understand what he meant.

He went down with them then and came to Nazareth and lived under their authority. His mother stored up all these things in her heart. And Jesus increased in wisdom, in stature, and in favour with God and with people.
