November 9, 2002
has given us the Shepherds of Christ
to help renew the Church and the world.
The heart of Mary is pure — the heart
of Jesus is pure, we are to model
ourselves after them.
We see the story in the garden of Eden.
God had two people and then a family.
Eve wanted to be higher than God.
She did not want to obey.
The devil tempted her.
She gave in. Adam gave in.
A sin of pride.
A sin of being above God.
I write as God directs me.
At the beginning of the Bible is the story
of Adam and Eve and at the end
the story of the bride coming down
from heaven to meet her husband.
Brides wear white.
Brides should be pure.
The Church is a pilgrim Church, it
is to grow in her purity.
A BEAUTIFUL BRIDE OF GOD
GOD IS ALL PURE —
We are in an army here below fighting satan.
Was not that the story in Genesis.
Adam and Eve were in a garden.
They could bear fruit for the Kingdom.
Instead they ate the fruit.
They disobeyed God.
They ate the fruit that was forbidden.
They were at war with the devil.
They gave in.
God put 2 people in the garden.
God expected them to work together as one.
God expected them to bring forth fruit.
God expected them to obey Him.
There is structure.
God, man, wife —
Then comes children —
The children — one was a shepherd — one
who kept flocks
The other one who tilled the soil —
Genesis 4: 2
She gave birth to a second child, Abel, the brother of Cain. Now Abel became a shepherd and kept flocks, while Cain tilled the soil.
Ezekiel 34: 11-16
“For the Lord Yahweh says this: Look, I myself shall take care of my flock and look after it. As a shepherd looks after his flock when he is with his scattered sheep, so shall I look after my sheep. I shall rescue them from wherever they have been scattered on the day of clouds and darkness. I shall bring them back from the peoples where they are; I shall gather them back from the countries and bring them back to their own land. I shall pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the inhabited parts of the country. I shall feed them in good pasturage; the highest mountains of Israel will be their grazing ground. There they will rest in good grazing grounds; they will browse in rich pastures on the mountains of Israel. I myself shall pasture my sheep, I myself shall give them rest–declares the Lord Yahweh. I shall look for the lost one, bring back the stray, bandage the injured and make the sick strong. I shall watch over the fat and healthy. I shall be a true shepherd to them."
November 9, 2002 message continues
There is structure —
Christ is the head of the Church —
Satan tempts people to write their
own rules —
In this case they may rationalize it
is okay to have sex outside
of marriage, they may have
all kinds of reasons ——
But the devil tempts people to
rationalize why the sin is
what they should do.
Some people become in a habit of
sinning, they may not be
consciously aware of how
habitual their sin has become.
In communities — where one has given
themselves there is always structure —
one over them, one over them, going
on back to God.
In families, the father and mother
over the children, the father
and mother going back to God.
I know many schools today in order to
bond with the students challenge
the parental authority when the
children are seniors in high
school on retreats, which
create division between children
and parents that are life-long
and damaging to the system
where God clearly states —
Sirach 3: 12-14
My child, support your father in his old age, do not grieve him during his life. Even if his mind should fail, show him sympathy, do not despise him in your health and strength; for kindness to a father will not be forgotten but will serve as reparation for your sins.
November 9, 2002 message continues
creeps in — in little ways — that need —
to control — to have ones way — and
this society does not help, for it
does not promote the system in
many cases where parents are in
charge (on the whole) and children
are under them.
I write as a messenger of God.
God sent His only begotten Son.
God wants us holy.
God wants us to model our lives after
the New Adam and the New Eve.
Jesus is God.
Jesus is the New Adam.
He obeyed His Father.
He loves the people under Him.
Jesus gave Himself on the cross
because He loved us so much.
What does God want.
Power comes from God.
In the family there is authority — parents
get the authority from God.
The Church gets the authority from God.
Think of any business — would it work
if people underneath argued
and argued and everyone tried
to be on top.
Look at a classroom — one is in charge —
people in the classroom try to
argue with the teacher to get control —
some may ask questions — acting
like they do not know what is
going on just to get the floor and
do their own will.
Some people in communities — never
recognize the leader — the whole time
they are there, in their heart, they
want to be over the leader.
What a disunited scene that is and
a cross for everyone living there.
It is in the heart.
It is the failure of one to ever recognize
anyone is over them.
They can be in a community, in a family,
but they have never allowed
anyone to really tell them what
to do so they can give in on
some things, but when things
are important they may give
into the temptation to do it
their own way surprising the
PASSIVE - AGGRESSIVE the priest told me.
Some are angry in their heart and in
silent ways, and with the anger
deep seated in their heart they are
always trying to get control in
It makes for a real problem when a
person running a community is
"wishy-washy" like that.
How about children that always try to
be in charge over the teacher —
over the parents.
Is the world teaching us in many
instances to be #1, to have
our own way, to disobey
authority, to work for ourselves
and not help our brother?
I ask you to look at a community and
a particular man.
A man enters a community.
Since childhood he has kept himself
from ever getting too close to
He will try to not have anyone over
Right away — he has a problem with
the authority —
To get himself on top — in his heart
he says the authority is wrong —
he may argue to constantly get
the top position causing the
person in charge a lot of
trouble, he openly calls
attention to the person, he is
"pushy" in his own way.
The priest would say "passively-
aggressive." He may be silent, but he
is angry in his heart, as soon as he
leaves the community and goes to
another community — he talks about
every one in the other community
and especially the leader. He has
caused lots of trouble in the past
for the leader when he has traveled
to other sites.
Then he cries abuse, everything to
blame the community and others
for his own deep-seated anger —
lack of docility, never allowing
anyone to be over him —
He is a real case, but to hear him
talk, you may be able to
agree with him — he is not
coming from a place of truth —
he is coming from a place where
he wants to mold all those around
him to his own dysfunctional
way of thinking.
We are the product of the past.
We grow up in homes in which we
acted out patterns.
Some when they get in relationships, after
leaving the parental ones as a child,
say, "no body" will be over me again.
Some one may be in charge of a community
They were single all their life.
They did not have a real relationship
of give and take, they lived alone,
they did what they wanted — then
they think they have a calling and
they are holy, they lived alone,
they very seldom ever interacted on
an intimate basis, being in charge
of the community now gives them
the opportunity to try to run a very
"stiff place." They keep their distance,
they do not promote community
interaction, they run the house —
in the mode they can still be
single and independent.
Will they look at themselves and
change. It is like moving a
"bulldozer". Their own activities are
veiled to themselves.
To be like Jesus —
To operate in community life —
We have to be willing to change —
Pray for grace to see —
Pray every day —
Make Jesus our spouse.
We operate for Jesus not to please
the one in authority, not
to get control, not to get
"one" this time and then sometimes
"only sometimes" obey the one in
authority so we don't get "thrown
Some operate to live the same single
life they had before —
In community life — there are married
Soon they establish a "little kingdom"
they can effect everyone, for
they can keep taking more and
more control in little ways in their
Their actions are veiled.
Satan works in this way through the other
to stop productivity and to try to
lead people in the direction he wants.
There is such power in working together.
God wants it.
In married life people must work together —
some operate just like they were
and do not grow in greater
Some bring all their dysfunctional patterns
to the marriage and if one wants
to stay married they are forced to
live in these dysfunctional
situations that function —
I write as a messenger of God —
so much can be said —
but I want you to study the words
of John 17 ——
The Prayer of Jesus
After saying this, Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said:
Father, the hour has come:
glorify your Son
so that your Son may glorify you;
so that, just as you have given him
power over all humanity,
he may give eternal life
to all those you have entrusted to him.
And eternal life is this:
to know you,
the only true God,
and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.
I have glorified you on earth
by finishing the work
that you gave me to do.
Now, Father, glorify me
with that glory I had with you
before ever the world existed.
I have revealed your name
to those whom you took from the world
to give me.
They were yours
and you gave them to me,
and they have kept your word.
Now at last they have recognised
that all you have given me
comes from you
for I have given them
the teaching you gave to me,
and they have indeed accepted it
and know for certain
that I came from you,
and have believed
that it was you who sent me.
It is for them that I pray.
I am not praying for the world
but for those you have given me,
because they belong to you.
All I have is yours
and all you have is mine,
and in them I am glorified.
I am no longer in the world,
but they are in the world,
and I am coming to you.
keep those you have given me
true to your name,
so that they may be one like us.
While I was with them,
I kept those you had given me
true to your name.
I have watched over them
and not one is lost
except one who was destined to be lost,
and this was to fulfil the scriptures.
But now I am coming to you
and I say these things in the world
to share my joy with them to the full.
I passed your word on to them,
and the world hated them,
because they belong to the world
no more than I belong to the world.
I am not asking you
to remove them from the world,
but to protect them from the Evil One.
They do not belong to the world
any more than I belong to the world.
Consecrate them in the truth;
your word is truth.
As you sent me into the world,
I have sent them into the world,
and for their sake I consecrate myself
so that they too
may be consecrated in truth.
I pray not only for these
but also for those
who through their teaching
will come to believe in me.
May they all be one,
just as, Father, you are in me
and I am in you,
so that they also may be in us,
so that the world may believe
it was you who sent me.
I have given them the glory
you gave to me,
that they may be one as we are one.
With me in them and you in me,
may they be so perfected in unity
that the world will recognise
that it was you who sent me
and that you have loved them
as you have loved me.
I want those you have given me
to be with me where I am,
so that they may always see my glory
which you have given me
because you loved me
before the foundation of the world.
Father, Upright One,
the world has not known you,
but I have known you,
and these have known
that you have sent me.
I have made your name known to them
and will continue to make it known,
so that the love with which you loved me
may be in them,
and so that I may be in them.
The "truth will be in us", John says
2 John 2: 2
because of the truth that
remains in us
and will be with us for ever.
2 John 1: 1-2
...and to her children, whom I love in truth—and I am not the only one, for so do all who have come to know the Truth—and I am not the only one, for so so do all who have come to know the Truth—because of the truth that remains in us and will be with us for ever.
This Movement exists to be one holy
army fighting to spread the
light of Jesus across the land.
Jesus wants us to work together.
He worked with His Mother.
He worked with His Apostles.
Jesus was seen a great amount
of the time in community —
eating, talking, speaking
before crowds, healing the
sick, at the wedding.
Why do you think Jesus showed us this?
The strength is in operating together.
We have to be one — one body —
trying to live together in love
with Jesus our head.
In every situation a person may
come with a heart that is
envious and wanting to be
in charge and try to get
in control in passive ways —
causing upsetments, acting
like they don't understand —
drawing out the conversation
so little can be accomplished
and in the end they hope to
get control and do it their
They can practice this over and over
again and cause a lot of
problems because of their
We are to help renew the religious orders.
See Jesus walking with 12 Apostles,
eating with 12 Apostles —
can you imagine how they got along.
This is it in the end we will be one
Do you operate for God or for yourself?
Are you rigid and set in your own
ways stopping unity in work
and productivity because you
are selfish, argumentative,
jealous and want to be in
Argumentation is just a form of
getting your own way.
Why argue about stuffing envelopes?
If someone in authority says —
I want the pink paper over the
blue one, why do you have
to get some control by
trying to switch them.
That is a defect inside the person
when they are called to the job
to do something and they take
the job and just want to
switch things so they can be
This is not to say people have called
people together to help each
other in better ways to perform
This discussion covers the topic
of people who harbor anger inside
and cause trouble
trying to be the leader in
a community when they are
not the leader.
This discussion concerns some
problems in community
life and other situations
that block productivity
and keep people stuck
in a bad place because of
willfulness and giving into
satan to block unity.
Mysteries of Light
Baptism of Jesus
1. PURITY —
2. We are here to grow in purity.
3. Jesus was baptized in the Jordan.
4. Water is a sign of purity.
5. Jesus is the New Adam.
6. We sin.

9. We must go to her pure, Immaculate Heart.
10. Baptism erases the effects of original sin.
Excerpt from Response to God's Love - Chapter 7
Christ offers himself through the Church and her sacraments so that we might become ever more united to him. This incorporation into Christ begins at baptism, through which the Christian becomes a member of both Christ and the Church. What is more, this incorporation into the life of Christ means being incorporated into his paschal mystery because death-resurrection was the summary mystery of Christ's existence. Death-resurrection was the central mystery whereby Christ gave us life, and it is the central mystery that the Christian must relive in Christ.
Marriage of Cana
1. Jesus performed a miracle at the
wedding at Cana.
2. Jesus changed water into wine.
3. I am so thankful to God for
the gift of the Eucharist.

Him and love each other.
9. God is all holy.
10. We need to grow in greater holiness.

3. To receive special insights into
the Divine Mysteries is a gift.

Excerpt from December 17, 1995
You whisked me away, and I was totally absorbed in that moment of celestial union with You. For that time, I existed only in You, in the deepest union, and I was in this moment existing in You. The earth stopped, and I touched the heavens, all my bodily cares were existent in You. I existed in Your Divinity, my being was in You.
7. I long to know about Him,
I want special lights I
receive from Him to know
Him more deeply.
It is a gift He gives to me
when He chooses.
8. A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul
Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

and are declaring to you:
God is light,
and there is no darkness in him at all.
10. God is with us — He is Almighty.
The Last Supper

with His Apostles.
2. He was with them. In communities
we work together.
Christ is seen with His Apostles
at the last supper.
Judas was not united.
It caused trouble.
3. We come together as a body
united in the Mass.
4. The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary,
sacramentally made present.
5. The Church is the Body of Christ.
6. We are not intended to cut an isolated
path through life.
7. The death-resurrection of Jesus, which
is encountered in a special way
through the sacraments, is most especially
renewed in the Eucharistic sacrifice.
8. Excerpt from Responseto God's Love, Chapter 7
In Jesus' sacrifice, the same five elements occur, although not exactly in the same order. There is the interior offering; Christ as priest offers himself to the Father in love for the purpose of adoration, thanksgiving, petition, and satisfaction for sin. This interior offering is then externalized at the ritual of the Last Supper. The victim, Jesus himself, is immolated upon Calvary. The Father gives a miraculous sign that he accepts Jesus' sacrifice through the resurrection. Finally, there is the sacrificial meal at the Last Supper.
9. Excerpt from Response in Christ, Chapter 4
5) The Banquet in Christ’s Sacrifice
The cycle of sacrifice is strikingly completed by God graciously extending an invitation to partake of the offered victim. This element of sacrifice is miraculously fulfilled in Christ’s oblation. By the words of consecration the bread and wine become Christ. In this manner Christ gives Himself to His disciples at the Last Supper. We will further develop these ideas of eucharistic communion in our consideration of the Mass.
We hereby complete the consideration of the elements of Christ’s sacrifice. According to the unicists there was but one sacrifice of Christ. The Last Supper, death and Resurrection each contributed essential elements. This one sacrifice of Christ endures in its efficacy for all time. In itself it is not to be repeated. Its sacramental renewal, however, is repeated daily on our altars in the Mass.
Jesus is the Chief Priest and Victim.
10.Excerpt from Response in Christ, Chapter 4
How is the paschal mystery and all the related mysteries of Christ renewed in the Mass? As a preliminary step to answering this question, let us first give a more detailed analysis of the mystery of Christ which was briefly described in the chapter on the Church. Put very briefly, this mystery is God’s concrete plan of redemption centered in Christ. The expansion of this idea leads to the theology of mysteries, a much discussed topic since the time of Casel.
The following is one manner in which we may conceive of the mystery of Christ. God Himself is ultimately the mystery – holy, completely transcendent, completely other. God in His inner life is thus hidden to man, unless He chooses to reveal and communicate Himself. He has so acted, giving Himself to man in word and action in Christ. Thus, because the ultimate mystery, God Himself, has communicated Himself in Christ, we have the mystery of Christ, the Christian mystery. It is legitimate to speak in the plural, designating the mysteries of Christ rather than simply mystery, because all that Christ did was part of the one unified mystery. In all the events of Christ’s life God was communicating Himself and redeeming man in Christ.
There are other ways of describing the mystery of Christ, yet we find a common denominator in our original statement: the mystery is God’s concrete plan of redemption in Christ.
