Messenger:          The gift God gives to man in
                    the Mass is so far above
                    anything we can imagine.

                        Oh He wrapped me in
                    His arms and gave me an awareness
                    of His deep love for me and every
                    Word in the scriptures so
                    much a part of my life and
                    treasured by me so much
                    insighted such depth of
                    awareness of the gift of
                    the Word, I scarce can
                    explain any of this in

                        The heaven opens and
                    the burning door to love
                    opens for me
— it is union
                    with God found in the
                    Mass when He acts on my

                        The Word and its fullness
                    means ever more to me
                    not in words, but in the
                    oneness I have with God and
                    every word of the scriptures
                    and the Mass deeply penetrates
                    my heart and soul.

                        Oh the gift of the Mass —
                    the gift of the priest —
                    The gift of the precious
                    Body and Blood of the

                    I went to the Cathedral
                    now there is such a connection
                    in my soul with Him there
                    for it is there He appeared
                    to me on the First Friday
                    and First Saturday of December
                    as the King on His throne
                    On the first Saturday with flashes
                    of light going across the front
                    of Him and my realization
                    of how truly present
                    Jesus is in the priest,
                    but I know Jesus, God
                    I know the Mass and I so
                    deeply unite to Him when
                    He acts on my soul with
                    this special grace.

                        I am a mystic, I feel
                    so deeply the oneness I
                    know in Him, so one
                    in knowledge with God
                    and He acts so intimately
                    on my soul, my vision
                    of it all so wide as I
                    bathe in the joy of the
                    resurrection and His life
                    within me.

                        Oh faltering, blabbering
                    words and I know heaven
                    from the ecstasies and the words
                    of Luke in the Annunciation
                    fills my soul with such
                    knowledge and joy I can
                    only cry from insight
                    into the mystery deep
                    within my soul.

                       Depth — Depth —

                    Depth — God the Father
                    sent His Son
— the Savior
                    of the world
the meaning of Christmas
                    the depth I know of this
                    Divine mystery within me

                            Oh I know Jesus appearing
                    at the point of death First
                    Friday of December, 8 years ago
                    then Mary appeared in
                    in Clearwater December 17, 1996
12 days later and I know so   
                    fully insight into the mystery
                    of the incarnation and what
                    it means to us

                        The intensity of this
                    hidden mystery delights
                    my soul, fills me with
                    joy and I hunger for
                    completeness forever in

                        I cry out to God — Oh
                    God I love you so much
                    Oh God I love you so much —
                    Oh God I love you so much —
                    I want this intense union
                    with Thee

                        I see, the inside of His
                        Sacred Heart as a warm
                        vat so deeply I am
                        united to Him, I know
                        this place of great depth
                        of union of being in
                        such an ecstasy of wanting
                        not even to write here to
                        just be in Him
— like
— wanting this place
                        of being in Him united
                        as I cannot even express

                        Heaven — God I long
                    forever to have the fullness
                    of life, forever in heaven
                    rooted in Thee
                    I kept hearing the song
                        Proclaim the Joyful Message and
                        my heart sings
                    I live with my heart in
                        song in union with
                    To know Him is to sing —
                        to have a heart ravished
                        with Divine love
                        To know oneness with God
                    and its embrace and to
                    rest in this magnificent
                    place with Him.
                        The world stands still,
                    the color is warm yellow,
                    light tinted with red
                    like the fibers of His
— there is warmth,
                    presence and a feeling of
                    peace and joy beyond
                    anything that could be
                    experienced here in
                    the material things of
                    the earth.


Isaiah 30: 23

You will hold unclean 
    the silverplating of your idols
and the goldplating of your images.
You will throw them away 
    like the polluted things they are,
shouting after them, ‘Good riddance!’

                        of death


Excerpt from April 4, 2003

Messenger:   I saw Him at the point of death on the cross December 5, 1996, after Mary appeared 500 times.

He hung, all battered, greatly weakened. His mouth moved very clearly. It seems that a man in His condition could not move His mouth to that extent.

Later in the rosary that night, He gave messages and said: "No one was listening."

Consecrate Your Churches, Home, and Workplace to Our Hearts

Jesus speaks: I want you to consecrate the human race to Sacred Heart of Jesus. I want to be enthroned in all homes, churches, and businesses.

June is the month of the Sacred Heart. I want to be king and center of all hearts. I will keep My promises given to St. Margaret Mary of Alacoque. I promise all this from My most Sacred Heart. Consecrate your chapter to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Consecrate the church or room in which you hold your meeting.

Today is First Friday. I want you to circulate the message I gave to you on consecrating your homes to My Sacred Heart. Make booklets available for people to be able to consecrate their homes and businesses easily. Use the message I gave to you when you consecrated your home.

The Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph. Consecrate all homes and businesses to Our Two Hearts. Tell all to have displayed and honored, pictures of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May and June are the months of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Tell all to consecrate their homes to Our Two Hearts. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. On this day, the 5th of May, 1995, First Friday, I request that you spend the next two months encouraging all to do this consecration.

Gather your friends and say the prayers I have instructed you to say. Sing "To Jesus Heart All Burning" and "Immaculate Mary." May these Two Hearts of love give all members of the human race peace, joy and love in their hearts.

R. Jesus said He desires to be honored by men in the Blessed Sacrament.

Jesus speaks: Circulate the Blue Book messages. They promote this devotion. How My Heart is filled with happiness by the souls who come to the tabernacle and sit with Me. I am Jesus Christ, I wait and long and thirst for My precious souls to come. The souls of men have turned cold. I want souls to come to daily communion and be with Me in front of the tabernacle.

Men's hearts have turned cold. They do not know what love really means. I want hearts that are filled with fire for love of God. Men's hearts have turned to stone.

You are to promote devotion to My most Sacred Heart. I want hearts that burn with love for My Heart. It is through Me that you will know the Father's love. I am the Way, I am the Truth, I am the Life.

Offer a holy hour for the indifference, ingratitude, and sacrileges committed against Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, the Sacrament of His greatest love.

R. He promises great graces to those who give reparation to His Sacred Heart and who tell others about offering reparation to Him.

Another Message

Messenger:        Our life is a spiritual battle —
                        A choosing of Christ and doing
                            always God's will in love.
                        Do we honestly love as God desires —
                        Do we give into human weaknesses.

                        In this season of Christmas we pray for
                            grace that people will embrace the
                            cross of Christ in realizing that the
                            incarnation goes on in us.

                        Why do we contemplate the birth of Jesus and
                            meditate on it so deeply —

                            Christ — the Divine God comes to earth the
                                Savior for our sins —

                        When we fail to recognize that we
                            are sinners, we fail to recognize
                            truth —

                        In dealing with our imperfections and
                            weaknesses, we recognize that we are
                            the poor banished children of Eve —
                            tempted to give into jealousy and pride
                            and all the 7 deadly sins —
                        We recognize our faults —
                        We seek for renewal —
                        We want to be molded in the image
                            and likeness of Jesus —
                        We come from the pure and holy Immaculate
                            Heart of our Mother —
                        There is a spiritual renewal —
                        The Holy Spirit works more and more in
                            her Immaculate Heart to form
                            us more and more in the image and
                            likeness of Jesus


Excerpt from Tell My People

The Holy Spirit

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

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

                        A symbol to us of Christ on the cross

Excerpt from December 4, 2004

Messenger:         Dear Jesus you are the King of our hearts —
                                Again Jesus told me to go to the Cathedral
                                and light flashed from the left side of Jesus
                                over and over again and Jesus' mouth
                                moved as He appeared as Christ
                                the King.

                            He has been making me so aware of
                                His presence in the priest at
                                Mass and today He did not smile,
                                but His mouth moved as the
                                priest said the words at
                                the principle part of the Mass —
                                the Light flashed over to the side
                                of His left hand where He
                                held the keys and Peter knelt.

                            It flashed across the front of Jesus
                                from left to right to His raised
                                hand, but to the side of  where Peter
                                was it was all lit up then
                                proceeded across Jesus to the
                                right side....

                                    I see the King, Jesus, appear
                                on His throne on First Friday and
                                First Saturday and First Saturday with flashes
                                of light from the keys in His hand
                                above Peter's head to His right

Messenger:      It is always greater perfection we seek.
                        We are tainted by the sin of Adam and Eve.
                        We desire to be more perfected as our heavenly Father.

                        Our Lady is sinless.

                            of Our Mother Mary — the more she
                            takes us to the Heart of Jesus, there we
                            are one with the Father in the Holy Spirit.

                            We are all imperfect human creatures —
                        Mary is the only sinless human person —
                        conceived without sin —
                            She is the singular vessel

                        about what is needed for her children to
                        follow God, to discern the spirits, to crush
                        the head of the serpent, to not give into

                        of cleaning the earth in the time of Noah and
                        His covenant He made with the earth — the
                        sign of the rainbow.

Jesus speaks:       When one cries for food — one can feast

                        they only leave you empty.

                            Do you not see the face, the suffering

                        The garden was given, the joy could have

                            because they want a new bridge, a new
                            way, when the old bridge was beautiful
                            and functional.

                        Pride is a sad thing — You can look at Eve and
                            see how so many are effected.
                            If one person is following a wrong spirit and
                            it is pointed out to them, many times

Rules for understanding to some extent the different movements produced in the soul and for recognizing those that are good to admit them, and those that are bad, to reject them. These rules are more suited to the first week

314.  I.  In the case of those who go from one mortal sin to another, the enemy is ordinarily accustomed to propose apparent pleasures. He fills their imagination with sensual delights and gratifications, the more readily to keep them in their vices and increase the number of their sins.

    With such persons the good spirit uses a method which is the reverse of the above. Making use of the light of reason, he will rouse the sting of conscience and fill them with remorse.

315.  2.  In the case of those who go on earnestly striving to cleanse their souls from sin and who seek to rise in the service of God our Lord to greater perfection, the method pursued is the opposite of that mentioned in the first rule.

    Then it is characteristic of the evil spirit to harass with anxiety, to afflict with sadness, to raise obstacles backed by fallacious reasonings that disturb the soul. Thus he seeks to prevent the soul from advancing.

    It is characteristic of the good spirit, however, to give courage and strength, consolations, tears, inspirations, and peace. This He does by making all easy, by removing all obstacles so that the soul goes forward in doing good.

316.  3.  SPIRITUAL CONSOLATION.  I call it consolation when an interior movement is aroused in the soul, by which it is inflamed with love of its Creator and Lord, and as a consequence, can love no creature on the face of the earth for its own sake, but only in the Creator of them all. It is likewise consolation when one sheds tears that move to the love of God, whether it be because of sorrow for sins, or because of the sufferings of Christ our Lord, or for any other reason that is immediately directed to the praise and service of God. Finally, I call consolation every increase of faith, hope, and love, and all interior joy that invites and attracts to what is heavenly and to the salvation of one's soul by filling it with peace and quiet in its Creator and Lord.

317.  4.  SPIRITUAL DESOLATION.  I call desolation what is entirely the opposite of what is described in the third rule, as darkness of soul, turmoil of spirit, inclination to what is low and earthly, restlessness rising from many disturbances and temptations which lead to want of faith, want of hope, want of love. The soul is wholly slothful, tepid, sad, and separated, as it were, from its Creator and Lord. For just as consolation is the opposite of desolation, so the thoughts that spring from consolation are the opposite of those that spring from desolation.

318.  5.  In time of desolation we should never make any change, but remain firm and constant in the resolution and decision which guided us the day before the desolation, or in the decision to which we adhered in the preceding consolation. For just as in consolation the good spirit guides and counsels us, so in desolation the evil spirit guides and counsels. Following his counsels we can never find the way to a right decision.

319.  6.  Though in desolation we must never change our former resolutions, it will be very advantageous to intensify our activity against the desolation. We can insist more upon prayer, upon meditation, and on much examination of ourselves. We can make an effort in a suitable way to do some penance.

320.  7.  When one is in desolation, he should be mindful that God has left him to his natural powers to resist the different agitations and temptations of the enemy in order to try him. He can resist with the help of God, which always remains, though he may not clearly perceive it. For though God has taken from him the abundance of fervor and overflowing love and the intensity of His favors, nevertheless, he has sufficient grace for eternal salvation.

321.  8.  When one is in desolation, he should strive to persevere in patience. This reacts against the vexations that have overtaken him. Let him consider, too, that consolation will soon return, and in the meantime, he must diligently use the means against desolation which have been given in the sixth rule.

322.  9.  The principal reasons why we suffer from desolation are three:

    The first is because we have been tepid and slothful or negligent in our exercises of piety, and so through our own fault spiritual consolation has been taken away from us.

    The second reason is because God wishes to try us, to see how much we are worth, and how much we will advance in His service and praise when left without the generous reward of consolations and signal favors.

    The third reason is because God wishes to give us a true knowledge and understanding of ourselves, so that we may have an intimate perception of the fact that it is not within our power to acquire and attain great devotion, intense love, tears, or any other spiritual consolation; but that all this is the gift and grace of God our Lord. God does not wish us to build on the property of another, to rise up in spirit in a certain pride and vainglory and attribute to ourselves the devotion and other effects of spiritual consolation.

323.  10.  When one enjoys consolation, let him consider how he will conduct himself during the time of ensuing desolation, and store up a supply of strength as defense against that day.

324.  11.  He who enjoys consolation should take care to humble himself and lower himself as much as possible. Let him recall how little he is able to do in time of desolation, when he is left without such grace or consolation.

    On the other hand, one who suffers desolation should remember that by making use of the sufficient grace offered him, he can do much to withstand all his enemies. Let him find his strength in his Creator and Lord.

325.  12.  The enemy conducts himself as a woman. He is a weakling before a show of strength, and a tyrant if he has his will. It is characteristic of a woman in a quarrel with a man to lose courage and take to flight if the man shows that he is determined and fearless. However, if the man loses courage and begins to flee, the anger, vindictiveness, and rage of the woman surge up and know no bounds. In the same way, the enemy becomes weak, loses courage, and turns to flight with his seductions as soon as one leading a spiritual life faces his temptations boldly, and does exactly the opposite of what he suggests. However, if one begins to be afraid and to lose courage in temptations, no wild animal on earth can be more fierce than the enemy of our human nature. He will carry out his perverse intentions with consummate malice.

326.  13.  Our enemy may also be compared in his manner of acting to a false lover. He seeks to remain hidden and does not want to be discovered. If such a lover speaks with evil intention to the daughter of a good father, or to the wife of a good husband, and seeks to seduce them, he wants his words and solicitations kept secret. He is greatly displeased if his evil suggestions and depraved intentions are revealed by the daughter to her father, or by the wife to her husband. Then he readily sees he will not succeed in what he has begun. In the same way, when the enemy of our human nature tempts a just soul with his wiles and seductions, he earnestly desires that they be received secretly and kept secret. But if one manifests them to a confessor, or to some other spiritual person who understands his deceits and malicious designs, the evil one is very much vexed. For he knows that he cannot succeed in his evil undertaking, once his evident deceits have been revealed.

327.  14.  The conduct of our enemy may also be compared to the tactics of a leader intent upon seizing and plundering a position he desires. A commander and leader of an army will encamp, explore the fortifications and defenses of the stronghold, and attack at the weakest point. In the same way, the enemy of our human nature investigates from every side all our virtues, theological, cardinal, and moral. Where he finds the defenses of eternal salvation weakest and most deficient, there he attacks and tries to take us by storm.

Luke 1: 46-55

                The Magnificat

And Mary said:

My soul proclaims
    the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
    in God my Saviour;
because he has looked upon
    the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
    all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty
    has done great things for me.
Holy is his name,
and his faithful love extends age after age
    to those who fear him.
He has used the power of his arm,
he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes
    from their thrones
        and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things,
    sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help
    of Israel his servant,
        mindful of his faithful love
—according to the promise
    he made to our ancestors—
of his mercy to Abraham
    and to his descendants for ever.

Jesus speaks:   Honoring Mary your Mother pleases your
                        Mary has told you to consecrate your hearts
                            to her heart and to My Heart.

                        You must spread this consecration —
                        Tell the little children about the rosary and Mass
                            book —
                        Publish the little tots material — right
                            away — as soon as reasonably possible

Satan can disguise himself as an angel of
                            light —
                        Satan has tried to discredit the Church and
                            the priests.


1 John 4: 1

My dear friends, 
not every spirit is to be trusted, 
but test the spirits 
    to see whether they are from God, 
for many false prophets 
    are at large in the world.


1 Thessalonians 5:10-22

    Do not stifle the Spirit or despise the gift of prophecy with contempt; test everything and hold on to what is good and shun every form of evil.


Messenger:         Even money, we should know the origins.



From December 3, 2004

Messenger:     My dear friends

    Today the Feast of St. Xavier,
First Friday, Jesus appeared to me
as the King on His Throne at the
Cathedral where He told me to go
to Church.  


    On December 5, 1996 - 
8 years ago Jesus appeared
to me at the point of death His
mouth moving, He was in excruciating
pain, I cried and could hardly stand

From a previous daily message:

I saw Him at the point of death on the cross 
December 5, 1996, after Mary appeared 500 times.

He hung, all battered, greatly weakened. His mouth moved very clearly. It seems that a man in His condition could not move His mouth to that extent.

Later in the rosary that night, He gave messages and said: "No one was listening."

    Today the Feast of St. Xavier,
First Friday, Jesus appeared to me
as the King on His Throne at the
Cathedral where He told me to go
to Church. 

   He was smiling and His
mouth moved and moved and moved.
He looked happy and the vision was
all aglow. He gave me a message to sit
in the first pew and He appeared
and talked about 20 minutes, He
was smiling.

        May God bless you in this
most beautiful season. 

With lots of love and thanks,
