Jesus speaks:  There is an element of trust in all that are one.
                       You come and dwell most deeply in My Heart.
                        I am the Almighty God. I am the Son of Justice. You
                        are My beloved one. You are the daughter of
                        God, you are one in God. You are so intimately
                        united to God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. You know
                        most deeply in your soul the oneness of God and yet
                        you know each Person in a very deep intimate

God the Father speaks: 

                                      Oh My beloved, I am your Father, I see you
                                        so afraid and yet I speak to you. I have given
                                        you so many favors and you still fear. Oh child
                                        it is passing, for so few years here below...
                                        My child have faith, be stout in your heart,
                                        not filled with fear.

                                      Oh daughter of mine, you are attached to so many
                                        things. You do not even know how attached
                                        you are. You depend on your communication,
                                        but I unite to you in your hearts.

                                        When you pray the prayers My Son Jesus gives you,
                                        you will be united so deeply in your hearts.
                                        He has promised you special grace to be
                                        united in a deep oneness in Him.

                                        Oh child, you are so loved by your God and you
                                            fear so much, you worry about everything,
                                            surrender to the God who loves you, pray
                                            to the Holy Spirit to make you courageous.
                                            I am working in ways you do not even know
                                            because of your fervent prayers. My love
                                            I give to you, you are My daughter and
                                            I love you so very much.

                                            I see you struggle in this world. You are
                                        My Messenger, you must deliver the message
                                        as I have given it to you.

                                            Many little ones are being lost, the children
                                        of your Mother and she cries to you. On this
                                        day December 14, 2001, I give you a special message.

God the Father speaks: 

                                      Why child do you fear?
                                        Do you meditate on the mysteries of the rosary?
                                        Do the mysteries of the rosary help you to be strong?

                                            Meditate as purely as you can on the

                                        Let go of those things that make you worried
                                        now and be in deep oneness with your God.

December 15, 2001

Messenger:     Today is our president, John's birthday,
                            Thanks to God for John our president.

                        My Father, I go to that place, I see the ocean far off
                            in the distance, I am alone with my God—Father,
                            Son and Holy Spirit and God spoke to me and
                            my Mother Mary.

                        My heart is filled with joy for those precious moments
                            when God communicates so deeply to me.
                            I know Him more deeply from this.

                        The message I received yesterday from the Father is a
                            message I need to read over and over again.
                            Many times I am so filled with fear and I do not
                            want to trust.
                            People may tell us, we are not very good, they
                            may tell us we acted incorrectly
                            they may act like that is all for us in our
                            relationship with them.

Jesus speaks:  Many people have been mistreated. They carry
                            within them the fear of not being accepted. They
                            place their feeling of importance on being accepted
                            by others. They work hard to please others
                            hoping then they will be accepted and loved.
                            You are loved. You are loved by Me.
                            I am your God. I loved you so much I gave My life
                            for you on the cross. Today I give you Myself
                            in the Eucharist. I love you so much my child.

Messenger:     Jesus has told me when we go to Him with such
                            love and give Him our love so selflessly
                            that He outpours His life to us.
                            We are saturated with His life when we
                            receive the Eucharist with a heart that
                            is holy, longing and wanting Him.

Jesus speaks:  I never leave you, my child, No matter
                            how difficult it may seem sometimes, I am
                            with you.

Messenger:    Oh my God, I treasure Your gift of Yourself
                            given to me in the Mass. I long for the Mass,
                            I want to be so close to you, I want time to
                            just be with my God, to just be alone with
                            Him and focus on Him.

Jesus speaks:  I want you to build up your family. I
                            want you to build them up and love them.
                            I want you to help build up the Body of
                            Christ with your deep love.
                        Do you want to build up?
                        Do you want to tear down?

                        Do you love? Then you operate to build
                            up the Body of Christ by acting lovingly.

                        You are not to allow what others think of
                            you to effect your moods.

                        Some days they are tired, some days they are
                            edgy, people create walls by
                            attacking others. Some people are
                            very complicated. They have been
                            wounded, they have been trained by
                            wounded parents, they act in anger
                            many times, never examining their
                            consciences or ever realizing
                            what they say.
                        I carried My cross to the hill of Calvary.
                            I mounted it.
                            I hung on it for 3 agonizing hours to My death.
                            Do you know the agony of the crucifixion.
                            The men I loved so dearly crucified Me.



Luke 23: 34

Jesus said, ‘Father, forgive them; they do not know what they are doing.’



December 15, 2001 message continues

Jesus speaks:  Sometimes people act lovingly, sometimes
                            they act mean. I ask you to love always.

                        I loved them to My death on the cross.
                        I loved those that whipped Me and
                            persecuted Me.
                        I am God.
                        I am a God of Justice and Right.
                        You must be grateful for the gifts given.

                        See the gentle breeze, the leaves blowing
                            in the wind, see the gifts given to
                        You must act as I desire you to act.
                        The devil can throw you off your course if
                            you give into him.
                        I am the Almighty God.
                        I give you My grace.
                        I tell you to obey My Commandments.
                        I ask you to be a light to shine with
                            My light within you.
                        Read the message of the Father December 14, 2001
                            over and over again.
                        I want you to be empowered, filled with
                            My life, filled with My light to do
                            My work.

                        How are you? The devil wants you to focus
                            on yourselves. Read the Blue Book Messages
                            Teachings to Lift you up.

                        Do not, do not give into satan.

                        Evil exists in the world.
                        The devil is very strong. He tries to get to you
                            this time of year. You operate in love.
                        He wants you bowed down.
                        You must trust in Me.
                        The devil attacks and he keeps taunting you
                            to feel bad, to give in, to be bowed
                            down, to feel sorry for yourself.

                        Who are you?
                        Does it depend on what others think or say?
                        My greatest saints were persecuted.

                        The important thing is—you live every day to
                            be a light—you love deeply—do not
                            give into mood altering foods that can
                            get you off guard—do not miss your
                            rest. The devil will want you to stay up
                            and miss the proper rest. The devil wants
                            people to drink cokes and caffeine 
                            and fill themselves with "uppers" and 
                            "downers" found in foods.
                        What makes you feel good is peace deep inside.

                        You cannot become so busy you miss your
                            prayer time.

                        Apostles, servants and handmaids are to attend
                            daily Mass and spend an hour before the
                        Satan will want you to give in to self pity. Do not continue to be
                            down cast, spiraling down more and more.
                        Celebrate this special anniversary December 17, 2001. Celebrate My Birth.
                        My work is at hand.
                        Thank your God for the gifts given.
                        Do not belabor the point.
                        There will be greater and greater pressure
                            as Christmas approaches from families
                            and friends.
                        Keep your focus.
                        Stay united to Me.
                        Pray often.
                        Pray your rosary.
                        Know that satan will try to attack you.
                        The devil says to you in negative tapes in your mind
                        "Oh you—holy one—HAH you aren't so good—
                          you should feel bad, you look bad,—
                          people don't like you, you are
                          ugly, you are fat, you are clumsy,
                          you are..."

                        Why have you come to the Virgin Mary site

Excerpt from the Mass Book


    I long to unite in the deepest union with Him in the Eucharist. I long for the Mass. I long for Thee, oh God. My every moment, I join as I did to You December 15 under the cross, where I felt Your presence. 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. There was no desire or wish or wanting, for in that moment, I had all I wanted in You. I was satisfied and wanted nothing but to remain in that embrace. You were the Being, and my being existed in You, but I was only as I was in You - merged in You, knowing and being in Your Divinity and being so full as to feel complete in myself.

    You are so enormous, and You surrounded me in a burning embrace, the presence of red fire. I was not little, or "nothing", but existed in this enormous power and being so complete!

    I touched eternity, and in that embrace, I knew all the waiting was worth the glory. You enveloped my being, and I was truly merged in the Divine Presence. I was merged in Your being. I existed IN You, with You, in the highest union with You, although I knew I was still distinct from You.

    I was fused and absorbed in You, feeling complete and satisfied. To describe this union is far beyond any work of my pen and paper. I pray for the reader of this page to receive the grace to share this experience with Him, I will now live for this union-to be forever merged In Him, to be One in Him, to reach higher perfection as I exist in Him, for He takes the lowly and gives to them a sharing in Himself. He merges with us and we exist in Him. The word "in" - I could write pages about. I long for the deepest union with Him, where I am swept up in the heavenly embrace of the Divine God, and I am IN Him.

    This is heaven on earth: to be merged as one with Divinity, although remaining distinct from God, to take our feeble hearts, our lowly status and to unite ourselves with the Divine, Almighty, powerful God and in this union to be meshed with Him, that His power dominates and our humanity reaches its heights of fulfillment in this union, in this oneness with Him.

    The word I have looked for is "oneness." I understand some of the meaning of the words "One in Him." Oneness is the word to describe this union of our humanity with His Divinity. The depth to which we could meditate on oneness with God is incomprehensible. In that moment, the earth stood still, and He, my Divine Lover, the Bridegroom of my soul, took me to Himself, and I knew the embrace of the Divine God.

    Nothing on the face of this earth can describe our union with Divinity. Oh, good God, that creatures are so ungrateful regarding Your divine love. I am so sorry. Let me help make reparation to Your adorable Heart. Please unite with me now that I may more deeply love Thee.

    Oh, Divine Lover of my soul, let me help make reparation to Your adorable Heart for the neglect and indifference against You.

Song from Jesus: I come to you with greatest love. I am your loving Savior. I am your God. I died for you. I come to you this day.

    He allowed me to experience such pain in my heart - wanting Him so badly, so many times-and then on Dec. 15, 1995 - He gave Himself to me in the deepest union.

    Nothing satisfies the soul but Him. He wants the nuns and priests to love Him. He chose them to spread His love.

    Souls are hungry. They will only be fed with His burning love. Priests need to talk about Jesus' love for us from the pulpit. Priests need hearts burning for love of Jesus. This will feed the hungry souls - lip service love doesn't do it.

    He is alive today. He is a Person. He wants us to love Him.

Excerpt from the Mass Book


    The place Jesus took me was into the deepest recesses of His Heart. I was enveloped in His burning love. It was a red room with heat and an intense glow. I was swept away in this embrace, and I only existed in Him. The power of the Almighty God enveloped me, and I only existed in Him. There was no fear, for I was existent in this Almighty Being. My heart was wrapped in the eternal embrace of this Supreme Being. The security, the power I know was His deep presence in which I existed.

    I knew the room was red and warm. I knew His immenseness, but I felt my own completeness in Him. I did not feel little, as a speck, but elevated and empowered for I existed then in Him in a most special way.

    I was overtaken by the love of God. The fire of the Holy Spirit filled me. I was absorbed by the love of the Father, and I existed IN Him and in the deepest recesses of the Heart of Jesus. Our heaven on earth is these inner chambers of His magnificent Heart - the Heart of the Almighty God, with all the power, with omnipotence, with the fire of the love of God. He took me to the deepest chamber of this fiery Heart, and in that moment, I touched eternity, for I knew what it was to be enveloped in the deep furnace of His love. I now want to exist in this chamber of His Heart, swept away in His burning love, absorbed in my every cell with His love.

    We do not understand the fire of His love. We do not understand what it is to be absorbed by love itself. He took me to the inner, deepest chamber of His Heart, and I felt the heat and knew the presence of love itself, and there was no fear, only a feeling of completeness, omnipotence, all-embracing, penetrating love - a power indescribable in words, a saturation of my being in the presence of God, and I was as I was created to be - living in Him!

    This is how I will forever live my life, saturated with His divine life and love deep within this inner chamber of His burning Heart, living in Him as He possesses my being, and I operate with His power in me.

    Little creatures though we are, we are His, His power, His life, flowing through us. In Him, we are as the Father intended: one in Him, each one of us, dwelling in this fiery furnace of His love. With our fears quieted and our hearts empowered by His life, we live forever in Him - in the Heart of Jesus.

    Let no man separate what God has joined together. I am wed in the deepest love with my beloved Spouse, wed to the Heart of Jesus. As I am, I am one in Him. I live and I breathe in Him. He, Who is love, He Who is our all, He Who is mighty and without limits, He Who is, He Who is God and as I live, He lives in me in this world.

    I am wed to Him, and I shall not fear for He is God - one, complete, loving, God. Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee. As I live, I live in Your most adorable Heart, the furnace of God's love!

Messenger:      Well it was six years ago today December 15, 1995,
                                I had this experience in the back of Holy Cross-
                                Immaculata. I still remember it as if it
                                just happened. I remember the Lord becoming
                                transfigured before me several times in
                                early January 1996 in the front of the Church
                                and then I remember Christ appearing at the
                                point of death on the cross December 5, 1996
                                in the back of the Church several days before
                                Mary appeared on the building December 17, 1996.
                                Here is how Jesus and Mary appeared December 5, 2001
                                this year. It was awesome.

Messenger:      As I sit here at Holy Cross-Immaculata about the
                                same time of this great experience December 15, 1995
                                I want to so deeply experience that presence of
                                God-Father, Son and Holy Spirit again. I was
                                overwhelmed with the presence that day, I remember
                                it so well. It was as if I was taken into this red glowing
                                chamber and I existed so intimately in God and
                                I was united so deeply to all three Persons. I was
                                deeply connected to Mary also, but it was all in a
                                oneness I cannot describe and I felt more
                                completely one in God and satisfied more than
                                any other experience in my life. I felt I wanted
                                for nothing. I felt a completeness of existing like
                                that in Him.

                                I did see the red glowing chamber, it was His Heart
                         I believe and it gave me so much peace when ever I
                         even recalled it. Great peace and great joy.

                                Today is a very special day to me because
                         of this experience. I think it is interesting
                         our president, John was born on this day.
                         He really is a great gift from God, and he
                         very selflessly serves the movement day after
                         day and has for over five years. We are very
                         glad God gave us our president on this day
                         December 15 many years ago. He has been
                         our president for a long time in Shepherds of
                         Christ years. A lot has been accomplished in
                         those five years. Fr. Carter received the
                         direction to make him the president,
                         Fr. Carter received the direction to have
                         Emily next in line and in charge of
                         Florida and the handmaids.

                                Fr. Carter really directed the movement
                         from his messages and the messages
                         I received.

                                Now God the Father tells us Father Carter
                         is interceding for us in heaven.

A message from Jesus for handmaids and servants and Religious

Religious Life, That special commitment as the Spouse of Christ

Jesus speaks:     Do not give into temptation. Pray for grace to withstand temptations.
                    You want to love and serve your God. You must not give into the tauntings
                    of satan that can lead you into sin. You say "I only want to serve God,
                    I do not want to offend Him, you cannot entertain thoughts that
                    can lead you into sin.

                        There is genuine love amongst the brethren, loving according to God's
                    will. People loving according to God's will stay focused on serving

                        True love always leads the other into a deeper love union with God.
                    For those in religious life there can be deep holy love between
                    persons, they do not entertain thoughts of romantic love.
                    They want their thoughts to be pure according to God's will.
                    People who genuinely love each other want to serve God
                    according to His will.

Messenger as directed by Jesus

                    The work in religious life requires men and women to work
                        together. There is always purity in the intentions to further
                        God's Kingdom and help each other go to heaven.

                    There can be a deep spiritual bond between persons in
                        the religious life to do God's work, entertaining thoughts
                        of romantic love is not permitted.

                    Love can be very deep between people serving God, but
                    it is always to lead the other deeper in their relationship
                    with God.

                    Some old schools prohibited men and women in religious
                    life from working with each other. This can stop the work
                    of furthering God's Kingdom if it is God's will people work together.

                    The focus in love relationships between religious parties
                    is always to do God's will. Religious persons always have their
                    relationship focused on God. When religious persons have relationships with
                    other persons it is not like a courtship as between persons
                    who are free and looking for a marriage partner.

                    The focus of religious who work with other religious of the
                        opposite sex is always primarily on God. They see their
                        relationship with God as a most special spousal union.
                        They want to serve Him as their spouse.

                    Engaging in ways that promote a physical sexual
                        relationship with another when a person is a religious is not
                        permitted if one is called to a life of celibacy.

                    The person should have very pure intentions in their heart.
                        They have God as the center in their heart always,
                        although others may have a special relationship with

                    The devil wants people to be in relationships that can be
                        sinful. He can try to tempt ineligible partners to be too close,
                        not according to God's will or, he can try to tempt
                        them to be divided.

                    The answer is purity of intention. All relationships should
                        be according to God's will. Each person should help
                        the other grow in their spiritual life and
                        each person should want to be more pure and
                        more deeply united to God.

                    We need to work together, cutting off relationships between
                        men and women in religious life entirely can be
                        blocking what God wants. God may desire people of
                        opposite sexes to work with each other to accomplish
                        His work. Stopping that relationship God desires
                        can block His work.

                    People in religious life do not give into the temptation of
                        making the other more important than Jesus, their
                        spouse, they are one in Him according to God's
                        will, they are one with each other and others.
                        They are united deeply in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary for His
                        holy purpose of promoting His Kingdom.



1 Corinthians 12: 12-30

The analogy of the body

For as with the human body which is a unity although it has many parts—all the parts of the body, though many, still making up one single body—so it is with Christ. We were baptised into one body in a single Spirit, Jews as well as Greeks, slaves as well as free men, and we were all given the same Spirit to drink. And indeed the body consists not of one member but of many. If the foot were to say, ‘I am not a hand and so I do not belong to the body,’ it does not belong to the body any the less for that. Or if the ear were to say, ‘I am not an eye, and so I do not belong to the body,’ that would not stop its belonging to the body. If the whole body were just an eye, how would there be any hearing? If the whole body were hearing, how would there be any smelling?

As it is, God has put all the separate parts into the body as he chose. If they were all the same part, how could it be a body? As it is, the parts are many but the body is one. The eye cannot say to the hand, ‘I have no need of you,’ and nor can the head say to the feet, ‘I have no need of you.’

What is more, it is precisely the parts of the body that seem to be the weakest which are the indispensable ones.It is the parts of the body which we consider least dignified that we surround with the greatest dignity; and our less presentable parts are given greater presentability which our presentable parts do not need. God has composed the body so that greater dignity is given to the parts which were without it, and so that there may not be disagreements inside the body but each part may be equally concerned for all the others. If one part is hurt, all the parts share its pain. And if one part is honoured, all the parts share its joy.

Now Christ’s body is yourselves, each of you with a part to play in the whole. And those whom God has appointed in the Church are, first apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly teachers; after them, miraculous powers, then gifts of healing, helpful acts, guidance, various kinds of tongues. Are all of them apostles? Or all prophets? Or all teachers? Or all miracle–workers? Do all have the gifts of healing? Do all of them speak in tongues and all interpret them?



Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Cling to Me

God's Blue Book I CoverMay 13, 1993 

Jesus speaks: 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.

December 13, 2001 message continues

Messenger:  Religious persons never want to cross the line of being united in a
                        way that is not pleasing to God. They do not want to jeopardize
                        their vocation to this special calling of having
                        Jesus as their special spouse. Satan will tempt
                        them to want to be united in ways
                         not pleasing to God.

                        Satan works in passion. He wants them to cross
                        the line and sin.

                      Their desire for deeper union with God and committment
                         as a special spouse of Christ is their primary

                      Their desire for God is upper most.
                         Their desire to do His will is foremost.

                      Their desire to love God and not offend Him is uppermost.
                      They can discipline themselves and work with each other in
                      deep love, never crossing the line that could lead to
                      diversion from the fact, God is their special spouse,
                      they make a commitment in their hearts to celibacy.

                      All men are to be one in holy love.

                      The deeper our union with God, the more capable we are of loving
                      more deeply.

                      There can be very deep union amongst people dwelling in the
                         Hearts of Jesus and Mary. There is genuine love according to God's
                          will, it never gives into improper touching for those
                          in religious life. The purity of intention is there to
                          love and serve God.

                      Religious give themselves in a special way to God.

                      They give themselves completely to Him.

                      In these times where God is so offended by the sins of the flesh,
                          the gift of oneself given to God in the religious life is very
                          pleasing to Him.

                      It helps make reparation for the offenses committed against Him sexually.
                      His body was beaten and bloodied, His flesh was torn,
                      His Precious Head crowned with thorns for our sins.

                      A person that gives themselves to God and takes a vow of
                          celibacy is giving God a special gift of themselves.

                      This takes a special grace from God and the willingness
                          of the person to cooperate with that grace.

                      It is a calling from God.

                      He calls the person to do this. He gives them special grace.

                      In this age of sordid sexual activities, this special
                          gift of self is so very pleasing to God.

                      Where so many offend God with their bodies God is so
                      pleased by the religious who love Him so much and
                          live this very special union with Him.

                      They should also pray for special grace to live this life.

                      What is important always is that we live God's will.
                      What is God's will for each person in their state in life?
                      Does God call certain people to have a special love
                          union with Him?
                      What is the role of the religious?
                      What is desire for me today?

                      God also calls married people to live their special
                      What is God's will for your state of life?
