December 5, 1998
Jesus speaks: I appeared on the cross at the point of death December 5, 1996. I appear today in the hearts of men filled with light and longing to spread My light to the darkened world.
I am the Son of Justice, I am Jesus Christ. I am God, come to save a thankless race.
Oh how I wish you were either hot or cold, but you are lukewarm and I spit you from My mouth.
I want hearts that are deeply connected in their faith, that will live for Me and Me alone.
You will not commit--you are wishy-washy, whereas I want commitment and fervor.
Oh you will not decide, truly in your hearts, to give yourselves completely to God, that is your problem.
From the highest mountain will come the streams of life-giving water as priests consecrate their hearts to Our pure and holy Hearts and offer sacrifice.
The Mass is the Sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present.
God, bring us back,
let your face shine on us and we shall be safe.
Shepherd of Israel, listen,
you who lead Joseph like a flock,
enthroned on the winged creatures, shine forth
Yes, people of Zion living in Jerusalem,
you will weep no more.
He will be gracious to you
when your cry for help rings out;
as soon as he hears it,
he will answer you.
When the Lord has given you
the bread of suffering
and the water of distress,
he who is your teacher will hide no longer,
and you will see your teacher
with your own eyes.
Your ears will hear these words
'This is the way, keep to it,'
whether you turn to right or left.
He will send rain
for the seed you sow in the ground,
and the bread that the ground provides
will be rich and nourishing.
That day, your cattle will graze
in wide pastures.
Oxen and donkeys that work the land
will eat for fodder wild sorrel,
spread by the shovel-load and fork-load.
On every lofty mountain,
on every high hill
there will be streams and water-courses,
on the day of the great slaughter
when the strongholds fall.
Then moonlight will be
bright as sunlight
and sunlight itself be
seven times brighter
--like the light of seven days in one--
on the day Yahweh dresses
his people's wound
and heals the scars of the blows
they have received.
Jesus speaks: Study the readings from Mass, Sunday, Second Sunday of Advent, Cycle A.
Q: How do I feel writing to you daily helps me to express the love in my heart?
There are seven levels of commitment in the Shepherds of Christ Movement.
In that hour before the Eucharist they spend part of the time praying the Shepherds of Christ prayers and the rosary. The time can be spent with spouse or others, but most spend the time alone before the Eucharist.
Whatever one's level of commitment in the Shepherds of Christ Movement, all share in promoting the overall goal of the Movement. This goal is to help in the spiritual renewal of the Church and the world. All the varied ministries of the Movement are directed toward this purpose. The spirituality which the Shepherds of Christ Movement presents to its members and to those outside the Movement through its various ministries is very basic. This spirituality is explicitly Trinitarian and Christocentric. Our spirituality helps others, especially priests, to develop a very deep union with Jesus, this Jesus who leads us to the Father in the Holy Spirit with Mary at our side. Our spirituality is deeply Eucharistic. We stress very much participation in the Mass and prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. We also emphasize the extremely important role of prayer in the spiritual life. Devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, especially consecration to Their Hearts, is also a most important and central element. We are very much interested in helping to bring the Fatima message to completion, a message which has consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary at its very core.
