November 30, 2009 - Feast of St. Andrew

                Happy Day Andrew — Singapore — Pray for him

                Need for people to preach the Gospel

                Andrew was one of first to carry this out

 

Romans 10: 9-18

that if you declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and if you believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead, then you will be saved. It is by believing with the heart that you are justified, and by making the declaration with your lips that you are saved. When scripture says: No one who relies on this will be brought to disgrace, it makes no distinction between Jew and Greek: the same Lord is the Lord of all, and his generosity is offered to all who appeal to him, for all who call on the name of the Lord will be saved.

Israel has no excuse

How then are they to call on him if they have not come to believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard of him? And how will they hear of him unless there is a preacher for them? And how will there be preachers if they are not sent? As scripture says: How beautiful are the feet of the messenger of good news. But in fact they have not all responded to the good news. As Isaiah says: Lord, who has given credence to what they have heard from us? But it is in that way faith comes, from hearing, and that means hearing the word of Christ. Well then, I say, is it possible that they have not heard? Indeed they have: in the entire earth their voice stands out, their message reaches the whole world.

 

Psalm 19: 8-11

The precepts of Yahweh are honest, 
    joy for the heart; 
the commandment of Yahweh is pure, 
    light for the eyes. 

The fear of Yahweh is pure, 
    lasting for ever; 
the judgements of Yahweh are true, 
    upright, every one, 

more desirable than gold, 
    even than the finest gold; 
his words are sweeter than honey, 
    that drips from the comb.

Thus your servant is formed by them;
    observing them brings great reward.

  

                Alleluia:

                Come after me says the Lord and I will make
                    you fishers of men
 

   

 

Matthew 4: 18-22

As he was walking by the Lake of Galilee he saw two brothers, Simon, who was called Peter, and his brother Andrew; they were making a cast into the lake with their net, for they were fishermen. And he said to them, ‘Come after me and I will make you fishers of people.’ And at once they left their nets and followed him. 

    Going on from there he saw another pair of brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John; they were in their boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. And at once, leaving the boat and their father, they followed him.

       

                How do we have faith
                We need to preach the faith

                We are sent
                In baptism we are commissioned to spread
                    the Good News

                Andrew was a follower of John the Baptist
                Andrew and brother Peter
                Andrew was ready to follow the
                    invitation from Jesus —

                We know very little about Andrew
                    as we know little of other apostles —

                Andrew was tied to the cross and
                    preached from the cross a couple
                    of days before he died

                We have been sent too, by God to be
                    witnesses of Christ

                Ask God to help us by our lives to
                    bring Jesus to others —
                    to bring the Gospel to others

                We pray for all who preach the Gospel —
                We pray for grace for people to hear —

                The Word and the Eucharist
                    is the Bread of Life

                Oh God feed us

                Thank You for heroic men who gave
                    their lives to bring us the Gospel —

                We praise You God
                We thank You God
                We love You God

                We want to make reparation for
                    the sins of men —

                Oh God we are sorry for our sins —

                Please make us holy —

                Oh God we want to be one with You —
                Oh Father - we unite to the sacrifice
                    of Jesus —

                Oh Father - we want to give You
                    ourselves in the Holy Spirit —

                We unite to all the angels and saints —

                Oh God we pray for the priests, the Church
                    and the world

                Oh God we are sorry for our sins —
                We praise You, oh God

                We unite to the souls in purgatory
                We pray through the intercession
                    of Mary

   

The Our Father

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

 

                Oh God give us peace

   

Lamb of God

Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace.

                               

                Oh God You are truly present and
                    we love You
                    we receive You —

                Jesus truly present: Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity
                    Oh God, give us Yourself
                    Oh God, I long for Thee
                    Oh God, I want You
                    Oh God, my heart burns for Your presence

                Song: Your Presence Pervades My Soul

                Oh God we pray for our hierarchy, a
                    cardinal having surgery, our
                    priests, the Church and the world —

                Oh God bless us
                Oh open our eyes —

                Let people see the truth and live by it —
                Oh God help us to be holy —
                    not rebellious
                Oh God bless us
                Oh God we give ourselves to You —

                To be so one with You
                To be in You

                Oh God we want Your constant presence
                    with us

                That we live to serve You and not focus
                    on ourselves

                If we go down the wrong road — no matter
                    how fast or hard we go we
                    will not get to our destiny

                Mary is the perfect handmaid of the Lord —
                    Mary loves all her children

                Jesus died for all souls

                Servants and handmaids of the Lord must
                    see as Mary — all the children of
                    the Church — not themselves only —
                    We see the children of Mary —
                    We see the souls Jesus died for —

                A handmaid sees through eyes of love
                    the children of Mary —

  

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.

 

                We are not self-focused

                But other focused

                We see the aborted babies, the little ones
                    created by God the Father and we
                    mourn this atrocity and offense
                    against God — the commandment
                    "Thou shalt not kill"
                    "I, the Lord, am your God. You shall not have other gods besides me."
                    Put God first above ourselves
                    Observe His law —

                Not lie about our disobedience to the
                    commandments

                We see with the eyes of faith —

                We see the souls Jesus wants us to reach —

                Our performance — me, me isn't important,
                    but our God and living in Him —
                    one in Him
                    serving God
                    helping souls —
                    seeing Mary's children —
                    drawing people to Christ —

                Not pushing people away because of
                    our isolation

                Oh God help us to be other focused
                            help us to see You in them

You Should Do All Things with Love

Messenger: This message was given the day after I received A Song from Jesus.

Jesus: Whatever you do, you should do with much love. I come, little one and I teach you such lessons. Some lessons you do not see. I teach you again and again, with much grace. You begin to see My work I have for you to do. Pray for the grace to know and love Me more. It is in your union with Me you will find such peace. As your love grows for God and Mary, your love grows for others. You cannot love Me and hate your brother. I call you to new life. I call you to oneness with Me.

    I am Jesus, the Son of God. Surrender your whole being, offer yourself as a sacrifice, whole and complete, to the Father at every Mass. Offer Him all you are, your love and good works. Offer yourself wholly and completely with My Body and Blood - this is the most pleasing sacrifice to the Father.

    Every day offer yourself to the Father in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being offered around the world for all your intentions. Say the Morning Offering with your children. Pray and offer your day so you will know and love God more.

    Do not let satan talk in your head. Always love your brothers. See the God Who created them when you talk to them. See the love the Father has for them. See My love to die for them. See the Spirit Who wants to be alive in them. Do not give in to satan.

    I am in charge. I support you. I love you. I watch out for you. I am the Almighty God. You do nothing on your own. Your brother depends on Me. Realize your frailties. Praise your Father in heaven lavishly. Praise God. We want to be praised by you!

    I am your beloved Jesus and I love you so much.

 

October 9, 1994

Be Christ to Each Other

Jesus: My little one, be of a clean heart. Be with Me. You must take time to be with Me. My love is surrounding you. You do not fear. I am Jesus. I am your Savior. You live to love God and do the will of the Father.

    I am forever with you. All you do must be acts of love. Put on Me. In all your actions, put on Me. Love, love, love. Interior peace comes from God dwelling within you.

    Put on Christ. Be Christ to one another. Be as I would be to your brothers. You are My blessed one. Do not fear. Just put on Christ. Be so connected to the God Who lives within. Total peace. Total love. Total presence. We are at the helm.

    As you operate with others, be Christ to each other. Love one another. Your heart must be forever connected to Me. Feel My presence within your heart. I dwell within you now. Easy does it. I am dwelling within you. You are living to love God, to serve God in this world, to be Christ to others as We dwell in you.

    Each person you encounter is very dear to Me and I love them so. Love them. See My beautiful creation in them. See Me loving them so much. See beyond the negative acts. This person is My beautiful creation.

    I am the God of Jacob, of Joseph, of all your ancestors. I talk to you here. Do not worry. Do not fret. Put satan behind you and let My love come forth to this world.

    Calm, peace, joy, love always. If you always love, you have peace and joy. I am Jesus, come to Me, My sweet ones. I live in you, live in My love. Alleluia, Alleluia.

                 

 

                Christ be in me
                Christ be before me
                Christ be by my side
                Christ fill me abundantly with Your life
                Christ surround me
                That I may walk, as You live in me

                I walked this way today in a new light —
                    His light surrounded me and
                    I knew I lived to serve my God —
                    To do His will —
                    Not my will opposed to God

                Oh God help me spread the Blue Books —
                    Send people to the site
                    Oh God help us
                    Amen.

                Song: I Love You Jesus

                Song: A Song from Jesus

                Song: A Priest Is a Gift from God

  

2nd Sunday of Advent

Baruch 5: 1-9

Jerusalem, take off your dress of sorrow 
    and distress, 
put on the beauty of God’s glory 
    for evermore, 
wrap the cloak of God’s saving justice 
    around you, 
put the diadem of the Eternal One’s glory 
    on your head, 
for God means to show your splendour 
    to every nation under heaven, 
and the name God gives you 
    for evermore will be, 
‘Peace–through–Justice, 
    and Glory–through–Devotion’. 
Arise, Jerusalem, stand on the heights 
and turn your eyes to the east: 
see your children reassembled 
    from west and east 
at the Holy One’s command, 
    rejoicing because God has remembered. 
Though they left you on foot 
driven by enemies, 
now God brings them back to you, 
carried gloriously, like a royal throne. 
For God has decreed the flattening 
of each high mountain, 
    of the everlasting hills, 
the filling of the valleys 
    to make the ground level 
so that  Israel can walk safely 
    in God’s glory. 
And the forests and every fragrant tree 
    will provide shade 
for Israel, at God’s command; 
for God will guide Israel in joy 
    by the light of his glory, 
with the mercy and saving justice 
    which come from him.

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

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

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

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

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