                Given November 7, 2010

                We see the hypocrisy in
                Herod, Solomon — Kings
                whose position in power —
                what they wanted became
                their god —

                Herod ordered the murder of
                all those little babies —
                God's rule must rule —
                When the person in power
                uses their position for their
                own power —
                they look through the distorted
                vision of power for themselves —

                where one who puts on the eyes
                    of God — looks to please God,
                    obey God — do God's will —
                they seek to build God's Kingdom —

                where as, the selfish King
                is worried about keeping
                    their power and can
                    execute anyone who is
                serving God above them because
                they become a threat —

                    At Fatima they jailed the
                innocent children who were
                telling Mary's message —

                    King Solomon became his own
                god — His women were gods —
                He let them worship false gods —
                besides the warnings — he
                continued bringing false gods
                to the Palace because of his
                wives —

                    He loved the Queen of Sheba —
                His love for women was so great
                He was warned about the false
                gods with the other wives —

                Toward the end he was
                making offerings to the false
                gods himself —

                    He didn't want anyone telling
                him what to do —

                    Even God and His rules —

                    He saw himself as the ruler —

                    A King is to rule, to help the
                people to live good lives — to
                be really a high-servant for
                the people —

                    We can see this in our lives —
                a person who feels weak in their
                relationships and disempowered
                seeks a leadership position, many times,
                to make themselves look strong —
                they want to not feel disempowered
                as they do — so their focus is
                always being over —

                They see this way —
                They try to manipulate others
                    so they become co-dependent
                    on them —

                They give and they take —
                They have the power —

                An unworthy king is not concerned
                about the people, but can grow
                more and more focused on his power —
                "you will be under me"
                "you will do what I say"
                The unworthy king says —

                    What is ultimately important is
                God — that we know, love and serve
                Him, but the greatest commandment
                says —
                "We must love our neighbor as ourselves"

                Fr. Carter called it the 3 loves —

                Not one can be missing

                    (1) Love of God
                    (2) Love of the other
                    (3) Love of self

                Our life is lived in putting God
                    and what He demands first —

                But He gives us a free will —

                Heaven is a reward promised to
                    those who love and serve the Lord —

                Passive-aggressive behavior
                    means — I attack with anger
                    in my heart — hold back —
                    do not do what I'm supposed
                    to — act passively, but I am
                    doing this to punish — out of
                    anger —

                    I am acting — the
                    angry heart is the issue —
                    I act to punish, in anger, by
                    holding back needed things that
                    God wants to build His Kingdom —

                I watched a movie and the little
                boy next door was always setting
                traps for the girls next door —
                One little girl took the key to his motor bike
                And it goes on and on —
                    game playing
                    like little kids acting bad
                        toward each other —

                God asks us to serve Him —
                God commands us to love each other —
                It is His rule —

                Like Herod — he was threatened by
                    little babies because
                    of a prophesy — so he killed
                    all those little baby boys —
                    His god was himself
                    His power —

                When a person is weak inside and
                    feeling power loss from other
                    circumstances in their life —
                    they may seek power-over
                    something else at all cost —
                    to compensate for their loss
                    of power in another situation —

                It can be that unsettling weak
                    feeling inside of them —
                    they can feel it is just —
                    they are angry what was done
                        to them —
                    So in justice they think they
                        should be vindicated so they
                        use others to rectify what
                        injustice was done to them —

                This is not right reasoning —
                It's projection —
                We project onto innocent others the
                    crimes someone else did to us —

                The reasoning is twisted, seen through angry
                    eyes seeking vengeance —
                    anger is one of the 7 deadly sins —
                    we need to forgive and be forgiven

                God calls us to follow Him —
                Jesus is the way, the truth and the
                    life —

                We must live in the truth —
                We act for the good of others —

                When we act out of unjust anger,
                    to punish our innocent brother for
                    our anger —
                    we are sinning —

                Pope Benedict XVI said we wash
                    ourselves —

                We need to keep our souls clean —

                We know we are called to love
                    others —
                    to punish innocent others for our anger
                    is wrong — it is a sin —

                We are to act for the good of others —
                    to help build God's Kingdom —

                To know we will be judged by
                    God for our actions —

                Being a Christian means we act
                    like Christ —

                Solomon thought he was above and
                    nobody could tell him what
                    to do —

                He taxed the people more and more
                    after the temple was built —

                We can try to manipulate to control
                    others because we want power —
                    because we are in constant
                    combat —

                We see in the Old Testament how there
                    was always a big struggle for
                    the biggest seat of power —

                Even when the King was just
                    and in command —

                The devil wants a person to
                    seek power for themselves —
                    then he can manipulate and
                    put in rules against God's
                    rules —

                The devil wants rules that violate
                    God's rules —

                The devil wants the persons under
                    to oppose the one doing God's
                    will —

                The devil wants souls for hell —

                God is over all
                He is to be first

                Obeying God's will is the lesson Jesus
                    came to teach us —

                To His death on the cross
                    He obeyed the will of the Father —

                Jesus had enemies —

                People doing God's will have
                    enemies —

                The devil wants to rule

Excerpt of The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, by Louis J. Puhl, S.J. P.60-61



The one of Christ, our supreme leader and lord,
the other of Lucifer, the deadly enemy of our
human nature

PRAYER.   The usual preparatory prayer.

window at a former Jesuit Seminary

137. FIRST PRELUDE.   This is the history. Here it will be that Christ calls and wants all beneath His standard, and Lucifer, on the other hand, wants all under his.

138. SECOND PRELUDE.   This is a mental representation of the place. It will be here to see a great plain, comprising the whole region about Jerusalem, where the sovereign Commander-in-Chief of all the good is Christ our Lord; and another plain about the region of Babylon, where the chief of the enemy is Lucifer.

139. THIRD PRELUDE.   This is to ask for what I desire. Here it will be to ask for a knowledge of the deceits of the rebel chief and help to guard myself against them; and also to ask for a knowledge of the true life exemplified in the sovereign and true Commander, and the grace to imitate Him.



140. FIRST POINT.   Imagine you see the chief of all the enemy in the vast plain about Babylon, seated on a great throne of fire and smoke, his appearance inspiring horror and terror.

141. SECOND POINT.   Consider how he summons innumerable demons, and scatters them, some to one city and some to another, throughout the whole world, so that no province, no place, no state of life, no individual is overlooked.

142. THIRD POINT.   Consider the address he makes to them, how he goads them on to lay snares for men and bind them with chains. First they are to tempt them to covet riches (as Satan himself is accustomed to do in most cases) that they may the more easily attain the empty honors of this world, and then come to overweening pride.

   The first step, then, will be riches, the second honor, the third pride. From these three steps the evil one leads to all other vices.



143.   In a similar way, we are to picture to ourselves the sovereign and true Commander, Christ our Lord.

144. FIRST POINT.   Consider Christ our Lord, standing in a lowly place in a great plain about the region of Jerusalem, His appearance beautiful and attractive.

145. SECOND POINT.   Consider how the Lord of all the world chooses so many persons, apostles, disciples, etc., and sends them throughout the whole world to spread His sacred doctrine among all men, no matter what their state or condition.

146. THIRD POINT.   . . .

32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

2 Maccabees 7: 1-2, 9-14

It also happened that seven brothers were arrested with their mother. The king tried to force them to taste some pork, which the Law forbids, by torturing them with whips and scourges. One of them, acting as spokesman for the others, said, 'What are you trying to find out from us? We are prepared to die rather than break the laws of our ancestors.'

With his last breath he exclaimed, 'Cruel brute, you may discharge us from this present life, but the King of the world will raise us up, since we die for his laws, to live again for ever.'

    After him, they tortured the third, who on being asked for his tongue promptly thrust it out and boldly held out his hands, courageously saying, 'Heaven gave me these limbs; for the sake of his laws I have no concern for them; from him I hope to receive them again.' The king and his attendants were astounded at the young man's courage and his utter indifference to suffering.

    When this one was dead they subjected the fourth to the same torments and tortures. When he neared his end he cried, 'Ours is the better choice, to meet death at men's hands, yet relying on God's promise that we shall be raised up by him; whereas for you there can be no resurrection to new life.'


Psalm 17: 1, 5-6, 8, 15

Prayer Of David

Listen, Yahweh, to an upright cause,
    pay attention to my cry,
lend an ear to my prayer,
    my lips free from deceit.

my steps never stray from the paths you lay down,
from your tracks; so my feet never stumble.
I call upon you, God, for you answer me;
turn your ear to me, hear what I say.

Guard me as the pupil of an eye,
shelter me in the shadow of your wings

But I in my uprightness will see your face,
and when I awake I shall be filled with the vision of you.


2 Thessalonians 2: 16 - 3: 5

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father who has given us his love and, through his grace, such ceaseless encouragement and such sure hope, encourage you and strengthen you in every good word and deed.

Finally, brothers, pray for us that the Lord's message may spread quickly, and be received with honour as it was among you; and pray that we may be preserved from bigoted and evil people, for not everyone has faith. You can rely on the Lord, who will give you strength and guard you from the evil One, and we, in the Lord, have every confidence in you, that you are doing and will go on doing all that we tell you. May the Lord turn your hearts towards the love of God and the perseverance of Christ.


Luke 20: 27-38

Some Sadducees-those who argue that there is no resurrection-approached him and they put this question to him, 'Master, Moses prescribed for us, if a man's married brother dies childless, the man must marry the widow to raise up children for his brother. Well then, there were seven brothers; the first, having married a wife, died childless. The second and then the third married the widow. And the same with all seven, they died leaving no children. Finally the woman herself died. Now, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be, since she had been married to all seven?'

    Jesus replied, 'The children of this world take wives and husbands, but those who are judged worthy of a place in the other world and in the resurrection from the dead do not marry because they can no longer die, for they are the same as the angels, and being children of the resurrection they are children of God. And Moses himself implies that the dead rise again, in the passage about the bush where he calls the Lord the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. Now he is God, not of the dead, but of the living; for to him everyone is alive.'


                At the age of 20
                Alexander the Great —
                built an empire from Sicily to Egypt
                    all the way to India

                This took 12 years

                Alexander died at 32

                7 brothers were tortured

                In the Gospel the Sadducees tried to test Jesus
                    to prove there was no such thing as
                    the resurrection —


32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time
November 11, 2007

INTRODUCTION: Alexander the Great built an empire that stretched from Sicily and Egypt all the way to India. This included Israel. About a hundred and fifty years after Alexander died, the Greeks still governed the area. By that time they started enforcing Greek culture and religion on all those whom they ruled. In Israel this meant, for example, that it was a crime to circumcise a child. Copies of the Scriptures were burned. Jews could not follow their dietary laws or celebrate their usual feasts. The worship of Greek gods and goddesses was required. Some of the Jews gave in to the Greeks, others fought hard to hold on to their traditional faith in Yahweh. Our first reading gives us just a hint of how terrible this time was for the Jews. This reading is chosen because it reflects their faith in the resurrection of those who are faithful to Yahweh, and it prepares us for the gospel which also deals with the topic of resurrection.

HOMILY: St. Paul said clearly, “If Christ is not risen, vain is our preaching and vain is your faith.” Paul’s words remind us how essential to our faith is the resurrection. It is the death and resurrection of Christ we celebrate each week at the Eucharist. We recall this mystery in the spring at Easter time because that’s when Jesus died and rose. At this time of the year we reflect on death and resurrection because the year is coming to an end. The Church reminds us our own lives will also come to an end some day. We have been called to share in Christ’s risen life at the end of time. Most of us do not like to think about this life coming to an end, but if we don’t think about it, we will not be very well prepared for it. It is important that we be prepared, because it’s only by being prepared through our faithfulness to Christ that we will enjoy the wonderful things that are ahead for us. Jesus said: “I came that they may have life and have it more abundantly.” That more abundant life will be with him forever in risen glory.

Our first reading describes the heroic faith of many Jews during the difficult period when the Greeks were attempting to impose paganism on the Jewish people. That was about a century and a half before the birth of Christ. The faith that these faithful Jews showed was amazing, considering that the Jews had not had a long tradition of belief in the resurrection. That was a concept that only developed a few hundred years before Christ. We see from the gospel that not even all of the religious leaders of Jesus’ day believed in the resurrection. The Sadducees were of the priestly class. We hear them in today’s gospel asking Jesus a ridiculous question, not because they were interested in the answer, but because they wanted to embarrass him with a dilemma they thought he wouldn’t be able to answer. Jesus answered them by saying their idea of the next life was incorrect. The law that Moses wrote about a man taking his brother’s wife if his brother were to die was meant to preserve a deceased man’s name and memory through offspring, to protect inheritance, and to secure the safety of the widow. There would be no need for all of that in the next life.

Jesus did not tell us much of what it will be like in the next life, because it will be so much different from anything we now know. It will not be a continuation of our present life. We will have our bodies back, not with all our aches and pains and imperfections, but in some glorified form. After our spirit enters into the glory of God's kingdom, we hope, then at the time of the resurrection, we will receive a body to match - a body that will radiate also God's glory. It is beyond our understanding now what this might be like. C.S. Lewis tried to describe it this way. He said a person who has experienced bodily resurrection “would have gone through as big a change as a [stone] statue...[being] changed from being a carved stone to being a real man."

The Lord reminds us today that the work of creation is not finished. Our spirits and the glorified body that we will have will be infused with the strength and beauty and glory and immortality of God. But we need to cooperate with this plan that God has for us. This is why Christ came to us, to show us the way. This is one of the reasons why we gather for the Eucharist each week – to remember what Jesus taught us and to remember what he did for us and why.


                Fr. Joe's Joke

                    A man left his home in Chicago to go
                        to Cancun for a vacation —

                The wife was to join him there —
                    he sent her an e-mail —
                    and he had the wrong address —
                    It went to a lady that just lost
                        her husband the day before —

                    She went to her computer and
                        brought up this e-mail
                        she fainted and fell to the ground

                        My dear,
                            I can't wait for you to join me
                                tomorrow —
                            It is hot down here
                                                your loving husband —


                Heaven is awesome —

                St. Paul used a seed —
                Put a seed in the ground
                and what comes out is so wonderful —
                so far beyond our imagination


                We have a hope —

                God is creating a new world today
                We are part of this —
                He is calling us to a new life —
                    To live this new life —

                Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist

                All are invited to be a part of the Kingdom
                    of God, but it is up to us
                    if we follow Him —

                Jesus is the unique Son of God

                Jesus is asking us to do God's
                    will —
                    — to hear what God's will is and
                    — to do what God's will is for us

Sufferings Will Befall You

January 19, 1994 4:45 a.m.

Jesus: I write a message for the world. I write this message for you. I want to tell them to pray and not to underestimate what sufferings will befall them all. Pray constantly. You suffer this weather, you see the earthquakes and you still do not comprehend a power greater than yourself. I have all the power. I want men's minds and hearts to turn back to God. I want God first in their lives, but they are so blind. What do they need to shake them to such great power!

All things are under My control. There is not one thing that happens that I do not allow. You are so comfortable in such evilness. Why are you not on your knees asking, "Lord what is happening?" One suffering will come after another and you will, in your blindness, have to admit to My Might. My mother comes and people pay no heed. Spread these messages. Spread her messages. Do not think of what others think of you. They will know soon enough of their blindness. Do not spend a day without telling someone news about the Blessed Mother and why she comes. Tell all of My might and tell them to pray. Prayer is your weapon in a sick world. Open up the minds of your friends. What will rock these children off their rockers? If the earth moves under them, they still stay steadfast in their ways. So stubborn, indeed. They want to be blind because they do not want to change to the ways of God!

I am He Who comes to you this way. I am He Who wants you to pray constantly. I am He Who is calling out an alert for a change in your lives. I am He Who wants you to pray, yet you sit. You idle and hold on to such trivial things while the earth moves under your feet! I will rock the heavens. I will tell you of My might. Sit, you idle ones, but you will suffer for not praying. I am God. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, and I am ever present in your midst. You are blind and look for idle pursuits.

You have become so comfortable in this evilness that you do not even sit up and take notice. "Oh, it is okay. I don't like it, but it is okay." Your children are being poisoned by the world, as if someone gives them constant poison, and you worry about your sports and what have you!

Where in the world do you think you are going? Man thinks he is here to stay. He spends his days making his life "better" he thinks: more things—more things, more money, better bodies, clean breath, better smelling feet—oh, such insane pursuits! Let's make these bodies so perfect! Our lives should reflect the perfect life! Our children run races for glory every day, not even knowing the Ten Commandments! You make every moment a pleasure in itself. Make yourselves happy. Eat, drink, be merry, be beautiful, be smart, be perfect. Forget God—who is He? We have a life going on here and we are going to enjoy every moment! This society is sick, sick, sick. What they are enjoying is destroying their souls. Children are not even aware that I exist and their lives are totally secular. They are so blind. Oh, America, I lament everything you do. It is senseless and without meaning!

The Son of Man is in your midst and you do not even know who He is. What more can I say. Spread My good news that Jesus is Lord and He is Coming, that you had better turn your lives back to Him now. Mary, My mother, is coming. The sun spins. What do they need? Such attachments to their sick ways! Pray constantly. Tell others about Me. Tell them to read the Bible and amend their ways. Tell them that I am God and that they need to turn their lives back to Me. Tell them to repent and pray. My mercy is great and I am waiting with open arms.

Pray, America, pray. You will soon know My might if you continue your foolish ways. Every soul who is fixed in Me is My messenger. Go to the highways and byways and tell all: Jesus is Lord and He wants you to amend your lives. He will rock the earth and you will know His might. Time is short. Repent and pray constantly. What do I do to shake you? This earth is very insecure, here today, gone tomorrow. The only things that remain are the things of God.

I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. Hear Me, America. Listen and be attentive! I do not come to give a message for one or two. This is My message for all. You will know My might in big proportions. I will rock you off your rockers. You must turn your lives to God. You are not here for fun and sin and whatever you are doing. Oh, little ones, you miss My tremendous love for you. You have missed all the good I have for you. You are stubborn and willful. You are silly and sick. Pray for your brothers. Pray, pray, pray, pray, pray, pray. Offer everything you do as a prayer and know I never ever leave you! I love you, My child. This message is an act of love!

I gave Myself that you might live. I am He Who comes to deliver this message to you and you are blind. Look beyond the cup and the drink. This is your miracle, that I am truly present in the Eucharist.

I am here. Open your eyes and see Me here in your midst. Come to Me all who labor and are heavily burdened and I will give you rest. I am your God and I comfort you on your way. I am waiting for you to come and be in union with Me.

You, My faithful ones, can no longer be silent. Don't worry. Speak out. Others need you!

 January 20, 1996 - After Communion

Jesus: My beloved priests:

        I love you with the deepest love. Many of you are going through motions. Your hearts are cold and you have turned yourselves to the things of this world.

        I came to you with a kind and loving heart and I am rejected by My beloved chosen ones.

        I call you to love, to a deep love affair with Me. How My Heart bleeds for the indifference and coldness of many of My priests.

        I call you to love – to giving of yourselves, to consecration to My Heart and the heart of My Mother.

        I suffered so through My Passion, but My greatest agony was from the coldness and lack of love I received from My beloved priests.

        I beg you, My child, to speak to My priests, to speak to all who will listen about My burning love. I give to you great graces that you may deliver the messages of Our love for this world.

        I will shelter you in My Heart and lead you on your way to speak to the religious about the Mass.

        I call you to speak and to sing My songs of love.

        How I love you. I have chosen you. I am asking for your selflessness to respond to My request. Speak – I speak in you. Love, Jesus

Jesus: How My Heart ached for the rejection of those I loved so dearly, some of My beloved priests and religious. I am espoused to them in a special way, and I am treated with such disrespect and irreverence by many of them. They wear the titles, "Father" and "Sister" and do not even come to Me.

        It is being loved by an unfaithful spouse. They are busy for their own self-gratification and have forgotten the great title I have bestowed on them.

        They do not see how favored they are by Me, the Almighty God. They seek their love from all other sources.

        How it offends My aching Heart! The thorns that surround My Heart pierced deeply because of the indifference of some of My beloved priests and sisters.

        It is through their love I give such love to My flock and the devil has led them astray. My flock is withering and dying in their hearts for many of My chief shepherds have gone astray.

        I beg, beg, beg you to speak to the priests and religious, to spread My Second Blue Book to all priests. Do not worry about the funds. My flock is dying from within. Their hearts have shriveled within their chest. They go through motions.

        Do the priests stand before the people and preach the love of God from their hearts or from their mouths?

        The love given to Me from My religious is so shallow. I am rejected entirely by many, yet they continue to administer the Sacraments and carry their titles. They do not realize the great honor that is given to them!

        You suffer the pains in My Heart for My beloved religious. The rejection, the busyness, the lack of love – how this offends My tender Heart.

        The religious are My chosen ones. I picked them and gave them My tenderest love. Some have hearts that have turned to ice.

        The priest is the key to spreading the messages of My burning love in the Church. Many speak without emotion for in their hearts they are dead. They do not fill their own hearts with the love of God. They try to fill their hearts with the world and speak about the love of God.

         I lament the lack of love from My chosen priests. The families come, the hungry souls come to be fed and many priests do not feed their hunger.

        I love, I love so deeply My beloved religious. I cry out to spread these messages of My burning love.

        They are going through motions. My beloved flock comes to My altar with cold hearts. Many priests are cold in their hearts. The world is cold in their heart. The families that go to church are not being fed with messages of My burning love.

        Mass after Mass, after Mass is said lacking emotion. Where are the hearts that empty themselves? Please circulate the messages about the Mass. When will the time be right?

        I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Unless the messages of My burning love are transmitted in the Church the bloodshed will continue. Your Church bears the marks of sin and suffering. My love, burning and on fire is the mighty medicine for the sick world and the Church. I beg you to circulate these messages on the Mass and the rosary. I am Jesus. My souls are hungry and begging to be fed.

        Pray for the priests as never before. Satan has waged a war against the priesthood. Priests and religious need to have a devotion to My Sacred Heart and My Mother's Immaculate Heart. Until hearts are consecrated to Our Hearts there will not be peace in the world. Consecrate your homes and your hearts to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. 

        I love with the deepest burning love. I want hearts that love Me with a deep, burning love. Come to Me and I will teach you about love. Go to the world and you will be taught the things of the world. The hearts of many of the members of My Church have turned cold. Give them the messages of My burning love! Little children need to know how I love them! What good is it for a man to run down a road that leads nowhere?

    I am the Way. I am the only way. Life is not life if it is not rooted in Me.

A Message for the Earth from Jesus

January 22, 1998

    I am the Good Shepherd, these are My prayers, the prayers I give to help renew the Church and the world, all prayer chapters are asked to include these prayers (found in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual). As My Apostles and Shepherds I ask you to encourage all existing Chapters to try to encourage all existing prayer groups to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Encourage all Churches to pray these prayers. It is most urgent that the people of this earth concur with the Father's wishes to begin Prayer Chapters. This is an urgent request from the Good Shepherd. The flock will become one when they have given their hearts to Jesus and Mary. Encourage all priests to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Your world will be lighted with great light as the people of this earth pray these prayers.

    My promise is this to you My beloved earth: When you give your heart to Me and spread the devotion to My Sacred Heart, I will write your name In My Heart. I promise to give the greatest graces when you pray these prayers for renewal of the Church and the world and take all who pray them deeply into My Heart. The prayers I give will bring about the reign of My Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. I am Jesus Christ, this is My message of January 22, 1998, Please circulate this message to your world. I am the Good Shepherd, I know Mine and Mine know Me and they follow Me. Grace My Shepherds, I will give you the greatest graces for spreading these words to this earth and to your Church. I love you, I am Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, it is the Plan of the Father that Prayer Chapters are begun immediately and the Priestly Newsletter is given to all priests. The Voice of the Good Shepherd speaks through it.

11 Years Ago

January 19, 1999

I address the date today January 19. ... If God were to act on the earth I would not be surprised if it was a 19th. For I have received strong and upsetting messages on the 19th. But although He performs great and terrible things for man, in the end a show of His wrath may be the very thing that leads souls to repentance. When we are enjoying all God's gifts and not Him, we have missed the boat. How will God get our attention? When He speaks through the elements and people do not see the Divine Almighty God that is behind every rising of the sun, and setting in the western sky? There are the ice storms that cause blackouts and the fires that cause devastation, the hurricanes that wipe out fruit, the earthquakes that destroy temples, the wind that blows and knocks the statues on their faces and the ravishing floods that guts a little town where the Virgin Mary appeared 22 times with enormous crowds present. Let us look at the video of Ricardo Montalban which shows the apparitions of the Lady of Fatima and the devastation of World War II after we were warned. The events are described by man as happenings, normal things. Look at Fatima and World War II. Look at Medjugorje and the devastation of that war surrounding it. Look at Falmouth and the flooded town, such a little tiny town. Look at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center and a corner of the building falls off after one solid month of warning.

10 Years Ago

January 19, 2000

R. In the writing in my notebook I also noted that the 18th and the 20th have been days when God has shown His anger. Jesus instructed me to include this here today.


January 20, 2000

Jesus: I address you for you are so dear to My Heart. I give to all a free will, I ask you to respond from that free will. The Shepherds of Christ is My Movement to help bring about the Reign of My Heart. The apostles are focused on the directions I have given. On October 13, 1996, three months before Mary appeared on the building, I called gatherings on the 13th of every month to help bring to completion the mission My Mother began at Fatima. Some leaders in My Movement would not listen to the messages in My Blue Book, and they no longer function as leaders. Only in firm commitment to ones spiritual life will a shepherd be able to hear My voice and do as I have asked. All apostles try most fervently to spend one hour daily before the tabernacle, go to daily Mass and remain twenty minutes after Communion, I wish this message to appear on the Internet directed to all who hear My voice within their hearts and want to respond.

To all concerned I give the following message:

My mission is a mighty one. My Mother appearing on the building is a continuation of the visits given to My messenger and the visits from our Lady, Mary, Mother of all in the 20th century. Mary called and called. On October 13, 1996, I asked for these gatherings to help bring about the culmination of the mission begun at Fatima.

Mary called men through her ministries.

I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus, I come to lead men to the depth of My Heart, where they will live every moment their spousal union to Me. I want them to be so one in Me. I am the Bridegroom of their souls.

Mary appeared at Fatima and said that men must give their hearts to Our two Hearts in consecration.

Mary said that you must pray the rosary.

Mary said that you must make reparation to Our two Hearts.

Mary said to observe the First Saturday Devotion.

In the act of discerning My Movement, many have focused and focused on what others have said who have not followed the messages given by Me.

I tell you this. I speak here. I am the voice of the Good Shepherd. You will hear My voice in the priestly newsletter and the messages given.

Many priests and millions of people have been changed because of the recitation of these prayers I have given. Praying to Me as I have instructed has brought down great grace for the world.

Mary stated clearly in the early daily messages that she appears to teach the world to pray.

I am teaching all to be the spouse of the Lamb and prime intercessors united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. I teach you to pray, being one in Our Hearts, for the priests, the Church and the world. You pray and great grace is released for souls.

The Blue Book messages have changed the lives of so many and led many churches to have Eucharistic Adoration.

When your children are being taught untruths in the world, and the world is teaching them to live an unholy life, it has wounded My Sacred Heart that the world has ignored your Mother, Mary, and partially blocked My mission.

The Father is angered because of how the world has failed to respond to Mary's apparition in Florida and to My Movement.

I come to you with My Sacred Heart in My hand and I give you refuge in this burning furnace of Divine Love.

I do not coerce or force, I ask every man to respond willingly. This is My Movement, I have run it. Souls are at stake. I do not speak to be ignored. I give warnings. The sign of Mary on the building is a major sign you receive. I want people to respond because they hear My voice. Mary gave signs, I call you to faith and to prayer.

The more you do as I have instructed, the more I will become alive in you.

I am Jesus, the Son of God, I speak to you here.

Sing My song: A Song from Jesus.

Revelation 22: 6-7

The angel said to me, 'All that you have written is sure and will come true: the Lord God who inspires the prophets has sent his angel to reveal to his servants what is soon to take place. I am coming soon!' Blessed are those who keep the prophetic message of this book.

Revelation 22: 20-21

The one who attests these things says: I am indeed coming soon.
Amen; come, Lord Jesus.
May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with you all. Amen.

Reference Revelation chapter 22: 6-21, Epilogue.

Jesus: Yes, I come to you today.

Revelation 3: 1

'Write to the angel of the church in Sardis and say, "Here is the message of the one who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars: I know about your behaviour: how you are reputed to be alive and yet are dead.


I ask you to see the fruits of My Movement, I ask you to hear the voice of the Good Shepherd in My writings. I ask you to obey. I will come alive more and more in their hearts, and they will be one flock with one Shepherd the more they give their hearts in consecration to Our Hearts and unite to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
