Writing by Rita Ring

                Jesus: I am love. Unloving ways of the
                heart are not as I desire —

                    Open combat

                    Ready to fight because of hidden
                shame and anger from the past. Children
                at an early age are shamed many times
                by parents.

                    Look at Genesis

  

Genesis 3: 10 

"I heard the sound of you in the garden," he replied. "I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid."

 

                I give you dignity

                No one is like you

                I give you My Blue Books to spread to the
                    hungry souls who are wandering
                    searching for love —

                I ask you to be thankful — to praise
                your God — to tell God on the retreats, 5ths,
                13ths you want to make reparation for
                the sins of the people of this earth —

                    I told Adam and Eve what to do and
                they disobeyed — They wanted to be equal
                to God — they hid ——

                    You have been given letters of My
                love — I love you so much —
                Your souls are hungry for My love

                Adam and Eve sinned, but they blamed
                    the snake, the other —

                The Christian is rooted in love —

                I have given you so much and am so
                    offended by your selfish, self-
                    seeking behavior

                Trying to prove you are right when
                    you sin.

                You are called to holiness

                You are called to prayer

                My Movement exists to further the work
                    of Saint Claude de la Columbiere
                    and Saint Margaret Mary

 

 

   

                Satan is the father of Lies

                    You do not feel good when you lie
                        to yourselves and others

                    Then you blame others because you
                        don't feel good when you
                        sin

                    Sin hurts your relationship with Me —

                    When you fail to admit your sin
                        and live a lie - You
                        further hurt your relationship with
                        Me

                I am love

 

John 17: 21-23

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.
 

 

                This is My Mission for the Shepherds of Christ

 

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Cling to Me

May 13, 1993

Jesus: 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.

end of May 13, 1993 message

 

                You can spend your life like so many
                    others trying to make the kingdom
                    for yourself

                The holy man - gives his heart in
                    love to be loving himself

                Being hard-hearted
                    will not bring love to this world

                I loved
                I sweat blood for your sins of pride
                    and provoking, you are right
                    hating those I have sent to you
                    to teach you and tell you of My
                    love

                Doing the necessary things brings unity

                Christians are to give a good example

                It is the way of life of the Christian —

                The work I call you to, takes little
                    time, but because of the pride
                    and jealousy of many you waste
                    precious time giving into satan —

                Christians should not go to
                    IN - FIGHTING

                    COMBAT in homes, churches,
                                        schools, communities

                If you want to spread the Good News —
                    you do not take up time in selfish

                            IN - FIGHTING

                    instead of good works


                IN - FIGHTING where there should
                    be love and unity and work
                    done to build My Kingdom
                    to show love

                This fighting takes time —
                This fighting is the devil's playground
                This fighting keeps division instead
                            of spreading the good - news

                Eve wanted to be equal to God

                24/7 we are to live in a way worthy
                    of our commission in
                    baptism

                Pagans said years ago

                Look how the Christians love one
                    another

 

Hebrews 12: 4-7, 11-15

In the fight against sin, you have not yet had to keep fighting to the point of bloodshed.

Have you forgotten that encouraging text in which you are addressed as sons?

    My son, do not scorn correction
        from the Lord,
    do not resent his training,
    for the Lord trains those he loves,
    and chastises every son he accepts.

Perseverance is part of your training; God is treating you as his sons. Has there ever been any son whose father did not train him?

Of course, any discipline is at the time a matter for grief, not joy; but later, in those who have undergone it, it bears fruit in peace and uprightness. So steady all weary hands and trembling knees and make your crooked paths straight; then the injured limb will not be maimed, it will get better instead.

Seek peace with all people, and the holiness without which no one can ever see the Lord. Be careful that no one is deprived of the grace of God and that no root of bitterness should begin to grow and make trouble; this can poison a large number.

   

Mark 6: 1-6  

Leaving that district, he went to his home town, and his disciples accompanied him. With the coming of the Sabbath he began teaching in the synagogue, and most of them were astonished when they heard him. They said, 'Where did the man get all this? What is this wisdom that has been granted him, and these miracles that are worked through him? This is the carpenter, surely, the son of Mary, the brother of James and Joset and Jude and Simon? His sisters, too, are they not here with us?' And they would not accept him. And Jesus said to them, 'A prophet is despised only in his own country, among his own relations and in his own house'; and he could work no miracle there, except that he cured a few sick people by laying his hands on them. He was amazed at their lack of faith. He made a tour round the villages, teaching.

 

                They wanted to put Jesus in a box

                There is structure —

                    structure even in bugs and
                        termites and how they
                        reproduce

                    how flowers are pollinated

                    the role of bees

                But you argue with Me when you
                    lie to yourself about your
                    sinful ways and pretend
                    you are doing My work
                    when you bring division
                    discord, hatred to where
                    there was to be love and unity
                    and work accomplished —

                Live to be an example of
                    Christian holiness and love —

                I watched a man, lie and lie about
                    his ways provoking others,
                    hurting others, causing
                    discord, disharmony
                    spreading hatred

                Then on the outside he acted like
                    he was doing My work

                A heart can be so hard and combattal —

                Children at 15 months can be shamed
                    and carry ideas all through
                    their lives of their inadequacies,
                    while they act out on others
                    this darkness and self - hate
                    inside

                When I send someone to help them
                    they can listen and change or
                    continue to do to others what
                    was done to them

                Trying to prove they are right by
                    being in competition, combat
                    with others —
                    so they can feel above
                    and in charge

 

Jeremiah 1: 4-8

The word of Yahweh came to me, saying:

 ‘Before I formed you in the womb
     I knew you;
  before you came to birth 
     I consecrated you; 
  I appointed you as prophet to the nations.’

  I then said, ‘Ah, ah, ah, Lord Yahweh;
you see, I do not know how to speak: I am only a child!’

  But Yahweh replied,
‘Do not say, "I am only a child,"
 for you must go to all to whom I send you
 and say whatever I command you.
 Do not be afraid of confronting them,
 for I am with you to rescue you,
 Yahweh declares.’

 

                I have called you to put on Christ —

                I have given you My Blue Books
                    the letters of My love

                    You smite Me while I love
                        you and died for you and
                        wander a barren desert
                        searching for love only
                        I can give

                Song: God's Love

                I have created you a unique individual.

                I have lavished upon you My love —

                Each person is a unique expression
                    of God's creative love.

                There has never been another person
                    like you.

                Parents because of their own shame
                    can make children feel
                    inadequate — they may
                    argue before them showing
                    hatred where there should
                    be love —

                    A person must see the love with
                        which they were created
                        by God

                    Not be shame - faced

                    God created you with dignity

  

Genesis 1: 26-27

God said, 'Let us make man in our own image, in the likeness of ourselves, and let them be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all the wild animals and all the creatures that creep along the ground.'

God created man in the image of himself,
in the image of God he created him,
male and female he created them.

 

                    The personal uniqueness of each
                human being increases in proportion
                to one's assimilation to Jesus.

                The more you put on My ways —
                    the more I give Myself to you
                    and you are formed more and more
                    in My image and likeness —

                My Heart is a vat of burning
                    love, but people who are ready
                    for open combat and competition are
                    far from My meek Heart

                People who were shamed want to
                    prove they are okay — so they
                    may try to bring others down
                    and raise themselves up (they think)

                You were created uniquely by God —

                You can fill yourself with
                    48 years of reasons why you
                    need to prove to others why you
                    are okay
                    while others are living and
                        spreading My Good News

                    Do you prove your worth coming
                        from an empty place of
                        wearing a mask and bringing
                        down others —

                You are radiant according to
                    how you are formed in
                    My image and likeness and are
                    loving, not selfish and
                    hurting others — trying to prove you
                    are right and ready for combat —

                Those who think they know it all,
                    know little and many spend
                    their lives trying to prove it
                    to save face —

                Being focused on what others think
                    of you for yourself - worth —
                    drives you from your center —
                    Which is having a loving
                    heart likened to Me —

 


 

                Song: Teach Me to Love You

                The more one grows in My image and
                    likeness — the more your uniqueness —
                    your unique personality emerges
                    in all its attractiveness.

                Being attractive is being as I
                    have taught you in My letters
                    of love —

                Loving God first — not trying to prove
                    you are okay among men

                Loving others as yourself

                Not using others — to lower and manipulate
                    them so you can hide
                    your shame - based personality

                As you grow in the talents I have
                    given you to do My work -
                    in My image and likeness —
                    you have joy - even in
                    suffering

                You were created for God

                You were created to love God above
                    all things.

                I sweat blood for your sins of
                    pride, anger, jealousy —
                    trying to prove yourself
                    better than others and
                    hurting others

                As you grow in the realization of
                    your own uniqueness, you
                    should also grow in
                    developing a sense of self-identity
                    and SELF-ACCEPTANCE.

                I have given to you this uniqueness
                    out of tremendous love for you —

                You should rejoice in the gift
                    of your life and your vocation —

                I want you to see your dignity
                    as you grow more and more
                    in Me — in My love —
                    putting on Christ in all
                    you do —

                You must curb your weaknesses
                You must pray to the Holy Spirit
                    to develop your strength

                Use the St. Ignatius Spiritual
                    Exercises —

                Do you discipline your will?

                Do you act for My honor and glory?

                Is God first in your life?

                Is your motive pure?

                Do you seek to put on greater
                    holiness?

                I have given you this unique
                    mission in the Shepherds of Christ —
                    I have called you to respond
                    to Me - for the honor and glory
                    of God

                Each person is unique and
                    can live My life alive in them
                    in the world bringing their
                    gifts given from God to the
                    world to do My work —
                    to help in your salvation and
                    the salvation of souls —

                The pilgrims come to be fed by My
                    Blue Books —

                    this is the main reason for
                    the existence of both centers
                    and praying for the priests,
                    the Church and the world

                To promote My Rosary Meditations
                To spread the Consecration to
                    Our Hearts

                To lead people to pray the
                    prayers and form prayer chapters

                To ask people to be
                    Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

                To form a strong unit of supporters
                    whose vocation is
                    supporting the Priestly
                    Mailing with their
                    prayers and funds and
                    praying as intercessors

                The daily message is given
                    by Me

                The days of prayer of retreat
                    at both centers, are to
                    make reparation to God
                    for the atrocity of the
                    sin in the world —

 

Prayer for Union with Jesus

    Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

 

                The prayer services are for you
                    to give service to God
                    and the world

                You are servants, handmaids,
                    apostles, Apostles of the Eucharistic
                    Heart of Jesus, Associates
                    called by Me and My Father
                    to help bring to completion
                    the Fatima Mission and
                    peace to the world —

                    and love

                I call you, I give you
                    dignity and love

                You are important to Me

God Calls Us to Love

I give you a new commandment: love one another; you must love one another just as I have loved you. John 13: 34

‘Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7: 7

Messenger:  Dear Jesus, I stand at the door of Your Heart and knock to come in. I want entry - to be lost totally and entirely in Thee. I want to be sheltered inside of Your Heart and wrapped deeply in Your infinite love.

Jesus:  I call you, child, to love. Love is rooted in Me. I gave My all for love of you. I held nothing back. Love gives freely for the good of the other. Love exists to draw the other closer to God. If your relationship with your brother in anyway separates you from God, it is not love.

    Love is not haughty, love does not demand its own way, love exists to lead the other to closer union with Me. I loved you to My death. I gave to you My all! I ask you to give your all for your beloved brothers. In loving them, you are loving Me. I live in your brothers. How can you love Me who you do not see, if you do not love your brother who you see.

    I am the way. I am the truth. I am the life. I give that you will know Me and know how to love one another. Love your brothers as I have loved you. When they persecute you and holler every evil word against you, love them. This is My way - to lay down My life for My friends.

I give you a new commandment: love one another; you must love one another just as I have loved you. John 13: 34

Messenger:  And to those who heeded His words, their lives were lived in peace and love and they experienced joy in their hearts, for true love brings peace and true love gives joy to the heart of the beholder. It is in loving that you receive, it is in giving that you are rendered to and it is in following the way of Christ that we are led into a life of everlasting happiness.

Jesus:  I have not gone. I live with you this day. I am in your brothers. Love them as I have loved you.

Messenger:  And He sent them such blessings in such abundance and they knew a little of His unending mercy and love.
