Messenger:                Silent Night — Holy Night

                                 But today God gives us so many gifts,
                                 but satan's grip is paralyzing and crippling.



     Cling to Me

May 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.

Messenger:           Why with the birth of the Christ child can so many
                                    find such times of sorrow and if we want to
                                    be happy they can continue to try to provoke us.

                            Jesus tells us the message of the Shepherds of Christ is to spread His
                                     love all over the world.
                                     Listen to the words of this song He gave us —



December 28, 2006 message continues   

Messenger:           We must let go of past hurts —
                                  not want to hurt others and project hurts on them.

                            A little man went out on Christmas day and he looked
                                around and it seemed all the men were so much
                                bigger than him — he began telling himself how
                                he thought others treated him as a weak man —
                                then he sat down on a curb and he cried — he
                                said "God why did you make me such a little
                                man" and then he thought of how everybody
                                was looking at him thinking he was weak
                                and little and not respecting him for it —

                            He had, had an argument with his most intimate other
                                       and then the "choo-choo" train started.

                                Pain from the past that is stuffed can surface and
                            people when they feel hurt begin looking outside
                            at innocent others — they say — I don't feel good and may start
                            pinning it on others because they don't want to
                            look at their pain or recognize it is in them.

                                Whenever we have really bad hurts in the past we
                            must try to work through them — sometimes feeling
                            deep pain, but in the end coming to a place of
                            love and forgiveness.

                                A man, like the little man, was experiencing a familiar
                            suffering — feeling disempowered and then like cars
                            on a train that keep being added on — he can turn to
                            negative thinking about a lot of things. "Poor me" — he
                            may say and the way he feels can feel very real — he can
                            think people are thinking things about him they are
                            not even thinking.

                                Life is to be lived focusing on others — Loving God —
                            loving others — recognizing the gift we are that God
                            created us and loves us and wants us to be a light —   
                            be positive.

                                When another has stuffed pain it can be like
                            a can of rubber bands — if anything is wrong — it's
                            like taking the can off a stuffed can of rubber
                            bands — they jump out like force.

                               Having hidden pain and anger can be volatile —
                            people who fail to recognize the pain really believe
                            their intimate other is responsible sometimes — There are
                            those who may provoke another and be mean and
                            expect the other to come like a loving mother picking
                            them up and saying "Oh, baby, don't cry."

                               God wants us united. People were created to interact —
                            If pain is so deep and failure for oneness with others so
                            frequent — a person can jump between a wall they
                            surround themselves — looking at personal achievements
                            as answers to why they "are so good" and making
                            that kind of achievement synonymous with
                            intimacy with others — healthy laughing —
                            silly — not afraid to let others act with joy.
                            A person very wounded may want to control —
                            Achievements are not the same as skills needed
                                                 to interact in relationships — in

                                I taught in colleges and we would have meetings and
                            dinners and there was a stiffness — people did not all
                            know each other —

                                To do the mission God calls us to do as members
                            of the body of Christ — we need to be one in the
                            Hearts of Jesus and Mary —

                                The Mass is the great love action we can
                            partake in — being so deeply one with God —
                            Father, Son and Holy Spirit and one with each other.

\                                Satan wants division — he wants us to not
                            have deep oneness living in the Hearts of Jesus and
                                          Mary —

                                Being deeply united as one —

                                One body —


                                toes —

                                Christ as the head

                            "I am the vine — you are the branches"—

                            LIFE IN HIM

                            His life flows to us through the Church —

                            We are one, holy, Catholic Apostolic

                                       The dysfunction in the people can lead us to be over protective
                            put up walls — we all have to be working on jealousies and envy and
                            love each other and help each other work as one doing God's
                                   will —

                                To be one in Him —

                                Jesus gives us His Body —

                                Jesus gives us His Blood —

                            Why do we not trust each other —

                            We all need to work toward purity, truth —
                                   praying to the Holy Spirit to show us our wounds
                                   and begging for His healing grace to heal us.

                            Begging for grace to see our imperfections —
                                         not lie to cover them up so we look perfect and
                                         lie and lie and stay STUCK, STUCK,  STUCK

                            We are all to be loving to each other —
                                       recognizing the unique gifts God gives
                                       us to do this mission of spread God's love to the world.

                            Needing a whipping boy, alcohol, work other things to
                                        hide pain is like wearing a burial wrap and
                                        staying in the tomb in the dark.

                            We need confession —

                            We need to go to Mass and ask to be forgiven and
                                          pray for forgiveness of those in the world —

                            Begging God for mercy —

                            All day united to the Mass in the Morning Offering.

                            Satan's grip is paralyzing and crippling —

                            Do we do things for the honor and glory of God?

                            Do we do things for ourselves —

                            Are we protective not ever really trusting
                                   anyone to be close to us and then if they
                                   do one thing wrong we say
                                   "that's it".

                            God wants people to love each other and work out
                                    their eternal salvation together —
                                    helping each other —

                            Someone working on themselves while they are
                                          imperfect is different than passive-
                                          aggressive ways we may use to hurt or manipulate
                                          others to try to control them emotionally —

                            We want God's will —

                            We want everyone working to full potential to build
                                   God's Kingdom —
                                   not ever blocking someone doing a good
                                   work because we are jealous.



    Use Your Talents

        October 3, 1993 Chicago Marian Conference 11:30a.m.

Jesus speaks: I am your Savior, Son of the Living God. I come to you that you might have life, not as the world gives you life, but My life which is life eternal. I carved you from My special carving and made you little less than an angel. I love you and cherish all the moments when you, My special child, come to sit with Me. I wait here and I hope you will choose to come, but I never force you. Your will is totally free and I give it to you because of My love and the will of the Father. I inform you in numerous ways. You do not have to guess and wonder. Come be with Me in this silence and all you need to know will be told to you. Your life is unfolding as a beautiful rose. Each petal falls and you plant My odors about as I so desire. I make your life full and sure as you trust in Me. No need for worrying, My little flower. My ways give you freedom if you listen to your heart. I am a personal God and you know Me as giving you fullness and life. You know there is some magnetism to Me and the way you crave to be part of Me. This is the work of the one, true God Who created you with a thirst that can only be quenched by Me. All roads that lead to Me give you fullness, worth, peace and joy, not as the world thinks, but as you yourself know true peace and joy. When I really touch you, you do not remain the same. I shed My Blood for you that you will have the life only I can give. What friend in this world would die for you? You, My child, were worth My dying for. I came that you will have life eternal and the gift I give is My Precious Blood for your sins. Come to Me in trouble and when you are bowed down. Come to Me in joy. Come to Me every day that you live and I will give you all you need. Seek to know Me more and more. Knowledge of Me, being with Me, are the only way to perfect peace. They lead to eternal life.

I have a divine plan for you. I created you with special gifts and talents to be used to do My work. They are not for your own self-promotion. You, My child, are nothing except as I created you. Why try to promote yourself? It is none of your own doing. I gave you the talents you are using. You had nothing to do with it. These talents were given to you to do My work. To use these talents to make yourself feel better than your brother is indeed a sin. You must realize they are loaned to you to work for Me. As you give someone a car, or loan them a place to stay, I loan you your talents to use to work for Me. If you do not work for Me and use them to make yourself better than your brother, you are offending Me. Likewise, if I give you talents and you do not use them because you think you are not as good as your brother, you are not being thankful to Me for My gifts to you. You are not using My gifts and that offends Me greatly. Each person was created by Me to do My work. Each person has all he needs to do My work. To be envious of others is fruitless. They have their job. You have yours. You are not supposed to do their work. That is why you were not given their talents.

Do your own work. Don't be envious of your brothers. Don't hide your talents. You did not earn them. I gave you your talents. You must sing because I will it. Others must do as I will them to do. It displeases Me to give you a gift and watch you hide it and make light of it. I give the gift. You must use all your gifts. They were given to you to do My work. Your brother has his gifts. Be grateful for your brother and he should be for you. You are all chosen by Me for a special mission. You know what to do. It feels right. I plant little seeds in your heart and all you do that is for you in the end feels right. You are not to be doing your brother's work or he yours. Talk to Me that you might know just what your work is and do it.

Do not hide your talents. Praise your God Who gave you these talents. Embrace and use them. This is not pride. This is My plan. I love you. I give to each of you, My precious children, as a mother who buys special Christmas gifts for each child. To buy gifts all the same for all your children is not to respect their specialness, their individuality.

Oh, I love you, little ones, so much. Please come to Me. I am so good and I wait to be with you and share My love with you. Come now. This is your top priority. All else will work when you come to Me first. I love you. You are My chosen children. Come and be filled and I make your loads light and I fill you with the Spirit of Salvation.

All roads that lead to Me are the right roads. Praise Me for I am good and I love you, little dear ones
