Matthew 5: 38-48

    ‘You have heard how it was said: Eye for eye and tooth for tooth. But I say this to you: offer no resistance to the wicked. On the contrary, if anyone hits you on the right cheek, offer him the other as well; if someone wishes to go to law with you to get your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. And if anyone requires you to go one mile, go two miles with him. Give to anyone who asks you, and if anyone wants to borrow, do not turn away.

    ‘You have heard how it was said, You will love your neighbour and hate your enemy. But I say this to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you; so that you may be children of your Father in heaven, for he causes his sun to rise on the bad as well as the good, and sends down rain to fall on the upright and the wicked alike. For if you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Do not even the tax collectors do as much? And if you save your greetings for your brothers, are you doing anything exceptional? Do not even the gentiles do as much? You must therefore be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.’

 

                Jesus: What makes you happy?

                Living as you were supposed to, as the Father intends
                    according to His will —

   

Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, life.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

   

                Jesus: I have called My Movement to help bring the era
                    of peace —
                    living according to God's will

                For the devil wants you to do what you do because
                    you want affections — fear of abandonment —

                R. Brothers and sisters
                    I tell you —
                    There is but one way

                    LOVE —

                The people serving for self glory are
                    not happy — they do it to manipulate
                    friends, get affections, pride,
                    power and money —

                Jesus: Satan comes and he is relentless —
                    He wants you to choose power, affection
                        or/and riches for why you act —
                    I look at the heart —
                    I want your motive to be to love and serve Me
                        and do the Father's will —

                A man went out in search of treasure —
                    but his vision was distorted —
                    He never saw clearly —
                    He lived in fear —
                    He was afraid of being abandoned —
                    He manipulated others to be able to
                        hold onto others — so he would
                        never be alone —
                    He was always afraid — like a scared
                        'kid' to be alone — so he
                        manipulated others to hold on —
                    Not purity of heart —
                    Where he should have done
                        a good deed in love —

                Having Peace —

                I call you to help bring the era
                    of peace

                Some are not peaceful, their whole
                    life — they live to slavishly hold
                    onto others —

                Where they could have performed good
                    acts in love —
                    to bring love and unity —

                They chose instead to have an impure
                    motive — affections for themselves —
                    doing their will and not God's —

                I look at the heart —

                The Movement was started at the
                    command of God the Father —
                To show the peace of Our Hearts (Jesus and Mary) —
                To focus on God —

                Knowing God lives in a special way
                    in the graced baptized soul —

                How are you?
                Are you focusing on God's will for you?

                Be free —
                Do God's will
                Don't try to manipulate others —

                How do you control your body?
                Who controls your thoughts?

                Do you focus on negative thoughts —
                    thoughts opposed to God's will —
                Are you ready to do God's will?

                Satan wants confusion, isolation —
                Let go of your pain —
                Love those in your lives —

                Being an instrument of love
                    means acting love out —

                Let your heart be loving and patient
                Look at all the people who hurt you —
                Look at those who have betrayed
                    you —

                Think of those you have betrayed —
                Tell God you are sorry for your sins —

                Don't lie to yourself about any
                    kinds of impurities you have —

                Say you are sorry for building walls
                    because you have chosen these
                    walls, you think to protect yourself
                    your whole life —
                    walls against everybody —
                    ready to let everybody know
                        how offended you are —

                Have you forgiven all those in
                    the past who have offended you —
                    or have you ignored the pain
                    only to pin it on another —
                    expecting others to heal you instead
                    of admitting your pain and then
                    asking God to heal your wounds —

 

 Anger Wall

 

                Jesus: Are you really living when you have
                    such a wall surrounding
                    you — so you won't get hurt —

                You have chosen - not to live in the
                    moment if you are ready with
                    a wall around you —

                Who can get in your heart —
                    with your fear of abandonment —
                    your anger —

                Love means you are not walled in

                I died on a cross — naked 

 

                Jesus: Able to live peace —

                Are you able to live peace?

                Do you surround yourself with
                    porcupine thorns? 

 

                Jesus: Are you a victim that has never
                    forgiven those who victimized
                    you —
                    so you act out —
                    over and over again
 


                Who has victimized you?

                Have you forgiven them —
                Are you still angry and don't want to
                    forgive because you want to
                    keep your anger —

                Anger turned inward can hurt
                    your body —
                    like depression —
                    hurt your soul —
                    lead to lies to justify sinful
                        ways of dealing with others —
 


                You should crave
                    Goodness
                    Peace
                    Love

                God the Father wants unity
                God the Father has blessed you —
                God the Father has given you the
                    Church and the sacraments —

                God is love —

                I am Jesus — I died for you —
                    I died for you —
                    Have you thanked Me —
                    I was whipped for you —

                Feel My presence with you —
                I give you energy —
                I give you light —
                I am the Light of the world —

                When you tell the world about
                    My True Presence you can
                    help others to know Me —

                I am truly present in the Eucharist —

                I want to be in Churches in
                    the dark corners of the world.

                Do you want this —

                Or do you want to stay angry —
                    seek affection to heal your wounds —

                Let your wounds go —
                Pray for healing —
                Want peace —
                Want a heart like Mine —

                Song: Give Me your Heart Oh Jesus

                Believe that God can help you
                    grow in peace —

                That you can be more and more
                    in My image and likeness —

                Love never runs out —
                Want unity and love with all —
                Turn your will over to God —

                Admit your angers and faults so
                    you can be healed —
                    so you can be pure —
                    so you're not like this man  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
