Mary has requested that the daily message be given each day to the world. It is read nightly at the prayer service from her Image Building in Clearwater, Florida, U.S.A. This is according to her request. All attempts will be made to publish this daily message to the world at 11 p.m. Eastern time, U.S.A.

A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul
Messenger: Include Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in 6:20 prayers.
I give you the program.
My apostles, it is all My grace.
I give so much grace in the Eucharist.
It is the grace that is needed for the Movement to move.
It is not My will you stay up and not get rest.
It is not my will you do all the work and skip your prayers.
Nothing can compare to one hour before the Blessed Sacrament.
Children receive grace from going to Mass and sitting before the Blessed Sacrament.
It is grace, My children.
You must pray for it, pray for the children, pray for yourselves.
You can pray so much for others, and get so focused on others that you forget yourselves.
You cannot become so focused on others that you do not take care of your own spiritual needs.
Anyone in the Movement that is an apostle and does not follow the plan I give them will cause tremendous problems for himself and the whole Movement.
Any person that thinks he is too busy doing Jesus work, but doesnt spend an hour will suffer more and more because he will not have the grace needed to do this. He will be glum, he will lead others off and he himself will be misdirected.
It is important to spend one hour. So you think you go to two Masses. I tell you, you need to go to Mass every day if you are an apostle and one who has a prominent role in the Movement. You cant do it without your prayers as I have directed.
So much grace is gotten from that hour before the Blessed Sacrament.
So you think you dont need it, and you can skip it if you go to two Masses.
I want the hour always before the Blessed Sacrament. I give you so much grace. You cant do it without that hour.
The devil will tell you, "Oh you are too tired, you need to do it at home, the kids need you."
You may feel as if you have weights on your body and cant go.
The devil knows how much grace is outpoured in that hour.
And once you have spent an hour every day and gone to Communion and then decide to stop it, feeling you dont have to do it, the hunger within you is an unquenchable thirst that you cannot stand.
You thirst, you long, you are restless, yet the devil tells you, "Oh, you dont have to go to the tabernacle, you can do it at home, YOU ARE TOO TIRED."
You have to fight the blocks the devil gives you regarding spending your hour and doing your hourly prayers.
Skipping Mass is the worst for an apostle. You will suffer, you will feel awful inside.
The devil will attack more and more to get you to skip your prayers and get busier and busier.
The loss of tabernacle time you were once accustomed to will cause a restless spirit within.
You DO NOT KNOW HOW YOU NEED THAT GRACE I GIVE YOU IN THE EUCHARIST AND BEFORE THE TABERNACLE.
YOU CANNOT DO THE WORK OF AN APOSTLE UNLESS YOU FOLLOW MY PLAN.
I SPEAK THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DO THIS WORK.
YOU NEED YOUR BLUE BOOKS.
YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO THE TAPES of rosaries and of Father Carter 5 minutes a day.
My children, the devil will be stronger than ever before.
It will be like struggling with a snake. The devil attacks inside. He attacks your
weakened spirits. He knows all the tricks to get to you.
He knows your inner self.
The grace you receive before the Blessed Sacrament and at Mass lifts you up.
YOU CANT DO IT, MY APOSTLES, UNLESS YOU GO TO THE EUCHARIST.
Dont tell yourself you dont need it.
YOU NEED IT TO DO THE WORK.
The devil is so strong.
THE GRACE I GIVE through the EUCHARIST is more powerful than through any other means.
I am truly present there in My Divinity and Humanity.
You need the Mass.
You need your tabernacle time.
If you are tempted -- do your hour of power, dont go for your cell phone before the tabernacle, plug your line into My Sacred Heart.
You are transformed before the tabernacle.
You need to pray the Holy Spirit Prayers as soon as you can after arising.
Dont skip what I tell you, you will suffer.
I have given you a program to fight off the devil.
Writing feeling letters to Me helps empty those hurt feelings and reading the Blue Books always helps you. I speak to you what you need to know.
Are you suffering? Then do as I have instructed.
Listen -- the devil is after you for doing all you are doing, he wants you stopped.
I tell you what will ward him off.
The devil accuses you night and day.
What does it say in Revelation?
Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, Salvation and power and empire for ever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ, now that the accuser, who accused our brothers day and night before our God, has been brought down. They have triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word to which they bore witness, because even in the face of death they did not cling to life.
Jesus speaks: The EUCHARIST IS MY BODY AND BLOOD --
My apostles -- you cant do it without the Mass and your hour daily -- the devil will taunt you to death.
You store up grace before the tabernacle, you are lifted above the dirt of the earth.
You run and do not get weary.
You must use your Blue Book I, especially in the front, if you are missing your tabernacle time.
I love you so much, I came forth from the tomb victorious.
I give you a greater sharing in My Life.
Listen to Me, I speak for a reason. I know your suffering, you are battling the ancient serpent, the devil, he is a SNAKE -----------
I give you My Life!
I love you, Jesus
Within the person are hidden layers of experiences, dreams, expectations. There is so much that occurs within a person to do one certain act.
It is so difficult to understand why one single incident may trigger a certain response in the individual person, but some of these responses can cause days in which the individual is paralyzed until they work through the occurrence.
It may be so painful, and the person is unable to work through it with the other person involved, so they stuff the intense hurt feelings in order to go on.
Stuffing feelings is not good, for it just causes the person to react to old wounds later in a more dramatic fashion.
I tell you this, the thoughts of many will be laid bare.
The devil knows your inner self.
My child, the devil is so real. He aims to stop My writing to you, he aims to do all he can to cause division, hurt and to help you act in a paralyzed state where he becomes your master.
Your focus must always be on Me and what I want.
You cannot let others stop you from doing what I desire you to do. Otherwise Satan can control you by manipulating the events around you.
I want you to be actors and not reactors. It is true that you must be considerate of others, but many times you do not do what I ask because you are paralyzed by worrying about what others are thinking.
To do Gods will, you do Gods will. Many do not do Gods will because they worry what other people think. It wouldnt interfere with the other person at all. They are merely worrying about what others may think, so they change their plans so they can look like everybody else.
Do Gods will for you.
Gong to the tabernacle puts you in a different frame of mind. You are saturated with My grace.
Do Gods will for you.
Go to the tabernacle and to Mass, pray your hourly prayers if for only a minute, do not skip your rosary, pray the 6:20 prayers at least some time during the day, do your Morning Offering ---
YOU CANNOT SKIP Your prayers if you are an apostle. The devil will work a big battle on you. You need the grace I give, it changes your disposition.

Talk at St. Ignatius
Jesus speaks: My dear children, I ask you to purify your hearts. Rid your hearts of any debris that is keeping you from greater union with Me. Any ill feelings toward your brothers diminishes the flow of My love within you. If you want holiness, you must be willing to forgive all those who have wronged you. Trade your bitterness for My divine love. I call out to you with this urgent message: purify your hearts, go to confession! Time is so important. Each moment you live, live to spread My love.
Song: A Song from Jesus
Reach out. It is in the reaching out that you will grow ever closer to Me. Pray to the Spirit. He wants to transform you into fearlessness. You must be fearless soldiers to spread My love to a world that is Godless. I call out to you this day -- will you answer this call?
Oh, sweet ones. I love you so much. I am forever with you. I remain with you in the tabernacle, no less present than the day I died for you. I wait for you, I long for you. I want you so close. Put aside your doubts. Open your heart now to experience My abundant grace that I am pouring out to you, grace I am especially giving to you, this night to help you grow ever closer to Me, to help you to know and love Me more. It is through the grace I pour out to you that you will grow in your knowledge and love of Me, the Father and Holy Spirit. I give you My grace abundantly in the Sacrament of the Eucharist and in front of the tabernacle. I am truly present in My Divinity and humanity.
Let go and experience the fire of My love. I AM ALIVE, I AM TRULY PRESENT IN THE EUCHARIST. I CALL OUT TO YOU THIS DAY. Open your heart so you will be closer to Me. I call you to union with Me. Come to My tabernacle. Let Me fill you with the burning fire of My love. Let Me give to you My grace, My Life. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God, born in a stable in the town of Bethlehem. Open your eyes, pray to the Spirit for vision. You see so little. You do not know how My love will set this earth on fire -- it begins with you !
Song: Come Holy Spirit
March 13, 1994 - My Heart Aches for You (excerpt)- Blue Book II
Jesus speaks: I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am on fire for love of them. I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. I call you to this state of urgency. Move your friends by this urgent letter. There is no more time to waste. I call you all here to deliver this message personally to you. I am Jesus. I am begging each of you to spread My message. Tell them of My ardent love. In each moment you waste, souls will be lost.
Message given January 18, 1995
Jesus: My child,
Make your hearts pure. My Mother is a heart that is so pure. Model yourself after her My dear child. You do not know of the sufferings that will befall this earth.
Ready your hearts for My time is at hand. My child, let go into My arms, let go of anger, hatred, pride, past sins, purify your hearts, go to confession. Your heart should be free for union with Me.
As I live and dwell in your heart, I will be closer to a pure heart. Your hearts must be free of anger from years past. Any anger toward any man blocks your union with Me.
Be of a clean heart, wash away all the debris in your heart.
As you breathe and live, live only as the Father wills you to live. Come to Me and be in union with Me, pray constantly to the Spirit to open your hearts and your minds to the wisdom of God. Oh child, I hate to tell you of the sufferings to befall this earth. You sleep to avoid My notes. Child, child, the time is near. Pray, pray, pray. Pray for the priests, pray to be heard. Your brothers have plugged up their ears and want only their ways. Nothing will shake the blind ones. I am the Almighty God, My power I will use to shake some senseless ones. Oh child, pray and be forewarned. It is your prayers that will help your brothers turn from their ways.
I am Jesus.
Pray, pray, pray, the time is near and you will know the Might of God.
I love you. Jesus
December 2, 1994 - On First Friday
Messenger: He told me to go to the tabernacle and pray for three hours between 12:00 and 3:00.
Everyone was so excited about Christmas and Jesus was giving me intense experiences into His Passion.
I had heard Him scourged at the pillar and experienced this as if I was present while they scourged Him and heard the sounds during the night as He was in the garden. Again it was as if I were present. After Communion on December 2, I felt as if I could feel blood run down my face and I was so connected to His crowned head.
On December 2, when I received this message I heard the wind blow and saw the cross against the darkened sky. I saw Him hanging, literally hanging from the cross. He was not hanging straight as on the pictures but humped over, sliding down the cross. I do not know how to express this. I only know He was not hanging straight as I see Him on most crucifixes. He looks so in tact on the crucifixes on our walls. He did not look like that.
Someone told me the next week that the Batavia visionary had suffering from Jesus' Passion the same time I was experiencing this.
Friday, December 2, 1995 - between 12:00 & 3:00 about 1:15 P.M.
Messenger: For three agonizing hours He hung, His Body bruised and bloodied from head to toe. His flesh was torn and He called out in a loud voice,
...'Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.'
As He gave Himself on the cross He gives Himself to us this day in the
Eucharist, but so many are blind to the immensity of His presence and His great love.
Stand under the cross with Mary and hear His cries from the cross. They are the cries that He cries to us this day,
...'Father, forgive them; they do not know what they are doing.'
Jesus speaks: Oh you blind men, I write letter after letter here and no one listens. I give you your answers to turn men's hearts to love and you plug up your ears and run to your world.
You who are blind have covered your ears and you do not see or hear. What do I do to tell you how truly present I am, how I write here and want these messages to circulate? You do not pray because you do not love. I write My love letters to enkindle a love relationship with you. Oh blind men, I want these letters published. I want all My books published. You do things your own way and I am talking to you here.
What do I do to shake you? The Blue Books need to be published. These are My letters of love to all My beloved souls. Souls are at stake. Some men will lose their souls.
They need to read these messages. I ask! I plead! I tell you sweetly to publish My messages. You do not even read them yourselves. I am begging you to take Me seriously. I want all the Blue Books published. I beg you My beloved ones to listen to My pleading.
I am your beloved Jesus. I come to you with a Heart of love. I beg! I write! I come to you this day. Please listen to My pleading. I am the Son of God. I beg you to respond to My pleas. I am Jesus your Savior.
Hearken to Me, for I call out an urgent message to you this day.
Message given November 2, 1994
(Messenger: Awakened with cramps in my feet and didn't want to get up, but He wanted me to rise. It is 4:00 a.m.)
Messenger: Oh Jesus, I do love You. Please give me all you want me to do and help me to not be distracted by Satan.
Jesus speaks: Do you realize that mens' souls are at stake? Do you realize I am giving you these letters? You take My work so lightly. Be committed to this. Will you ever let go so we can be about our union? You fight this union, you still do not want to believe with all your heart that I have called you here to write. I called you and I will continue to knock. Pray for strength to forget the world and focus on the souls that will be lost if you do not help Me with these letters. I call you, you write, half-asleep and want only to go back to bed. It is All Souls Day, pray for the poor souls. I beg you to preach My ardent love. Preach, preach, sing the songs, record the songs today. I want them to circulate. I am the Savior, I am Jesus, Son of the Living God, I am He Who intently loves you! Come and love Me this moment. Forget the world, release yourself into My hands. Total surrender to Him Who loves you.
Messenger: My God, My God, give me all I need to be drawn into this union with You.
Jesus speaks: You are fighting everything. See My Heart, focus on My love, I love you so much!
Agony of all agonies, the agony I suffered from those I love and how they would reject Me, how they are so cold in their hearts. They refuse My love, they refuse My grace, they refuse Me. I am your Savior. I died that you would have life abundantly. Then, to be ignored after I give you My life. Oh, do you know the ways of this Heart?
Do you see the Heart I show you? Always have this Heart in front of your face, it is your link to this deep union with Me. Focus on My immense love and the love and presence of My Mother. Focus on My presence. Did I look like this statue? I gift you so abundantly, yet you run to others to be validated. How your lack of faith tears at My Heart and makes it bleed. Oh, you, My favored child, when will you come and dwell and live forever in My Heart? I call you to surrender.
Messenger: I recognize the face on this Sacred Heart statue in the den as the same face I saw in the grotto, but this one is in color. I recognize the Heart as the Heart in the vision.
Jesus speaks: If the world hates you, you know My love - live for Me and to promote the devotion to My most Sacred Heart. Lead people to Me through the Eucharist and the tabernacle - this is the Sacrament of My greatest love.
Message given December 3, 1994 - First Saturday
Jesus speaks: I cry out to you and My words fall on deaf ears. If you have ears, hear, for I truly speak here and no one pays Me heed. You lack faith, you lack trust, you do not know what I impart to you. You, in your busy lives here, no time to hear My words.
I want My letters to circulate to My beloved children. I ask, I beg, I am not taken seriously. I am the Almighty God, heed My words here.
I called out and My words fell on deaf ears. My Heart cried out from its depth and I was rebuked, for the blind do not see and the deaf do not hear. I call out by day. I plead by night. I write My letters of such love to all souls and I am ignored. I am the Almighty God. I write these letters for all. I ask and I plead - I want My messages read. I want them to circulate.
You do things your own way. You are willful. You want proof, you lack faith. I come in the night. As the night remains, you remain in darkness. You see not. You do not even read these for the light. You do not want to be here. You do not want to pray, you do not want to turn from your ways.
You are blind men in darkness. I call, I write, I plead for months. I beg for a year. I want messages published. I am calling out an urgent request to publish these messages, to read them yourselves. You will be sorry, for souls will be lost because of the hold-up. These messages are needed now. The Eucharist is under attack. You hold these letters of My love and True Presence. I beg you one more time to listen to Me!
Message given December 8, 1994
Jesus speaks: My precious child,
Do not doubt. Doubt and worry come from Satan. I come to you with greatest love, I am your loving Savior. I am your God. I died for you. I come to you this day.
Souls are at stake. You can help prevent the loss of souls through your love and service of Me. I need you to spread My love. Satan wants the souls of My beloved ones. He wants them to go to eternal damnation. I am giving you these letters of My love. I write clearly and lovingly to all souls. How I intensely love all. Do not morbidly fear -- that fear is from Satan. You need to pray. Do not let him work on you. He wants you stopped. Focus on My love for you. Oh children, hearken to My call for you. I call out by day, I call out by night. The world is asleep. They do not want to hear that which I impart to you. They plug up their ears. They close their eyes and who do you see that does your work?
I call you to prayer. I call you to surrender. I call you to Me. I will tend to your work, your house, your car, all those jobs you think are so important. They are never to stop you from your prayer. Let go to Me. Pray to Me. Only in prayer will you be protected.
I am guarding you My beloved child. Prepare Me a way, for I am coming into your midst. Many will lose their souls. Are your dishes your end? You are being called to spread My love this way. My love I give to you, My beloved one.
I love you so much. Read My letters, sing My songs. I am Jesus. I am in your midst this day. I come to you with greatest love. I am your loving Savior. I am your God. I died for you, I come to you this day.
January 13, 1995
Jesus speaks: My dear children,
I have provided you with five books of My love letters to be circulated and used in your Shepherds of Christ meetings.
When you begin to realize I am using this as an instrument to enkindle the love of My most Sacred Heart and My Mother's Heart in the hearts of My children the world over, hearts will be turned to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. These messages need to circulate and be promoted. This is the mighty medicine to turn hearts to the ardent on-fire love of My most Sacred Heart. You do not realize how you stumble and wonder and look for your answers and your answers are in these letters. When people's hearts are filled with the love of Our two Hearts, they will operate from burning love. You do not know the might of God. People whose hearts are being fed by the Eucharist operate with burning love in their hearts! People in love with God will find a way to get the job accomplished.
It is prayers and deep love of God that will make this Movement flourish. All My members are apostles to spread the ardent love of My most Sacred Heart and My Mother's Heart. It is through these letters, personal love letters from My Heart to their hearts that they will more and more realize the immense love I have for them. My love is the answer. Hearts on fire with My love operate with My might.
The Prayer for Union with Jesus is a key to turning hearts to My love. It should be prayed daily. My songs are My songs of love for each precious soul. You look, you try, and I am giving you your answer here. None of you can realize the power of one soul filled with the love of Jesus. One person can move a mountain if Jesus is operating in him. You need to totally surrender, to turn your wills and lives over to My most Sacred Heart and My Mother's Heart.
The Spirit will move your members when members are praying fervently to Him. You cannot accomplish this task without deep union with Jesus. Through the power of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit given to you through Mary's intercession, you will lead your members when you circulate and support these messages.
I am Jesus Christ. I am giving you My letters of love for the souls. I thirst for, I long for, I want to unite with a soul in love with My Eucharistic Heart to light the world with the force of My love! You cannot do this job without the power of My love. I beg you to circulate these letters of My love. I beg you to pray the rosary with these meditations. The power is in the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. The Eucharist is being attacked this day. I beg you to listen to and spread these messages. Your answers are given in My messages to you.
Turn your wills and lives over, pray in front of the tabernacle, meditate fervently on the rosary. Keep attending daily Mass and receiving the Eucharist. Your love will grow and your job will become much easier as you surrender yourself to Me. Consecrate your hearts to My Heart and My Mother's Heart. Pray the Prayer for Union with Me. I love you. I am the Chief Shepherd of the flock.
January 17, 1994 3:40 a.m.
Jesus speaks: You know I am He Who lifts you up. In one second I can turn your feelings around and lift you up. Constantly pray to Me. You need Me through these times. Remember, I truly died for you on the cross. Remember, little one, I have chosen you to write to Me. Do you think I will ever abandon you? I am a God who truly loves His people. I love you with such ardent love. You must never doubt.
Look into My face and see My gentleness. I am the kindest of all hearts. I am He who knows how to love with such love. Become totally lost in My arms.
Do you think Satan will not taunt you? Put him behind you. You are being guarded by God and His heavenly court. Walk in My ways and the angels walk with you on your path. You are escorted on your way and you are never alone. You are guarded as a precious treasure that is being transported to another place.
You need to put all your cares in My hands. You are developing true trust when you let go and let Me take over. Keep trusting and silence the ugly prompting of Satan who wants you to worry about useless things. Quit worrying and pray and play with your children. I am telling you there is so much peace and grace gained by private prayer with them. I will tend to all the details of your life. Do not worry for one moment. Put your life in My hands. I am here, little one. Read this message and all of them over and over again.
You need to go to the Blue Book for your answers. Your answers are found there. I never leave your side. God is guarding you. Just continue to have a union with Me all through the day. All the prayer time alone with Me in one day is not enough. I want you in constant prayer.
Turn to Me and My Blue Book. This will help many priests to come back and sit before Me in private union with Me. When priests come back to the tabernacle, the flock will begin to be led back to His altar. Priests need to read these letters. They are the preachers. If they do not value their own relationship with Jesus, if they are being led away from Me with busyness, they will not preach the intimate love of Jesus. They are so busy, but it is like throwing out the baby with the bath water. I am the center and their relationship with Me is utmost.
The priests need these messages. They need to have an intimate, close union with Me. They should be preaching "time in front of the tabernacle." They should be preaching My intense love for My people and how I have so much to give. Some sermons are so complicated--yet nothing about union with Me in the Eucharist and in front of the tabernacle.
I want My priests to come back and pray before My tabernacle. I want them to read these messages and make Jesus the Center of their lives. When they are led back to Jesus, they will lead the flock home. Priests need adoration every day for at least an hour. I don't care how busy they are. None of it matters if they are not spending time in private prayer alone with Me. They need to come and get their supplies. They need to quit thinking they are doing it and turn back to turning their lives totally over to Me, to totally letting their burdens and busy lives off at the foot of My cross and letting Me lead the way.
There is not one priest who has so much to do that he cannot do private adoration daily. When the priest comes back to the power in the Eucharist and the tabernacle, the congregation will turn to God for their troubled hearts. Satan has led priests away from Jesus. They are so busy they cannot do all their work, but this must all take second place to praying silently before God and reading His words. These letters will help many priests to come back and be intimate with Jesus.
All the rituals, all the upkeep of the churches, all the little details, and the King of Glory sits alone! You have thrown out the baby with the bath water. You are missing the boat.
I want the priests to read this message. Where is the reverence after Communion and who has even heard it mentioned in the church? Private union with Jesus! What an honor! I have all you need. Come to Me and I will give you rest. I am all powerful. I have all the power. I am hyper--vigilant over your lives. I guard you. Quit trying to do it yourselves. Become selfless and let Me possess your souls.
Have the priests spread these messages. Read them in church. I want adoration of the Eucharist back. I want people to know I am God and I am coming to them in Holy Communion. I want the Blessed Sacrament exposed. I want My churches open. Union with Jesus, the love of Jesus, trust, faith, love for one another, love of God--I want all of these preached from the pulpit!
I am the Alpha and the Omega. I want My people to be led back to the center, which is Jesus. Pray for your priests. They are under attack. If Satan can wreck the family, the priests, the children, he has it made.
You are under attack, My beloved priests, and you, in your busyness, are being led away from your union with Jesus. Bring yourselves back to Me and let Me give you My love. I am indeed the bridegroom of your souls. I wait for My beloved ones at the altar. I long for private union with all My beloved ones.
Come to Me, all who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest. Come and be lifted up to heights you never dreamed possible. I am God. Put your lives in My hands. Let Me run your life. Quit running amok. You have lost your way and are running down the wrong road. Bring your lives back to Jesus in the tabernacle.
The world is getting farther from God every minute. Read the messages at prayer meetings. Spread them by word of mouth. The time you waste is valuable. These words are not meant to be saved. Spread them here by any means possible. I want them out, I tell you! If someone wants to read some messages, give them to them and let them read them at prayer meetings. There is no secret here. They are from Me and I want them out. I want you to speak. A lot of your discontent is in sitting around with all these messages and not spreading them. Tell your friends to speak. Speak My words here. You don't have to mention the source. Spread the messages. You are not what is important. The messages are. You will be exposed. Don't worry who knows, but don't spread your own story. Spread the messages. Like ripples on a pond, the love of God will be spread throughout the land. I have so much to give to My hurting ones. I am your God. I died for you out of deepest love. I have come in these messages to lead you back home.
Quit worrying of details. I am He Who runs the show. Pray for guidance every day. Spend one hour in front of the tabernacle. You cannot do in a million years what I can do in one moment. Quit relying on yourselves. You are only pushing buttons. When you are fixed in Me, the right door opens. When you go it alone, you have a hard road to walk. One hour in private adoration. Be silent or read the Blue Book. Your life will become uplifted by My teaching and you will sail a blue sky.
Spend time in silence and some in reading My words in front of Me. I am talking to you in these letters. What power, to read them in front of the tabernacle! You can't go it alone. You need My help. You need your supplies. But you must come and get them! You are following your tail around if you do it alone. I am He Who can do all this. When you realize My power in adoration, your lives will change. As long as you are too busy you will have a hard time. The soul craves this union with Me.
Lead the priests back to adoration and the people will follow. Our leaders have become too busy for adoration. This is the key, the key to unlock the doors to the world's problems. It is found in front of the tabernacle, at daily Mass and Communion. Do the priests ever preach any of this? You have forgotten your center, Jesus, in the Eucharist! All the power is found in Jesus. You have all that you need and you walk about and decorate My churches and clean every speck of dust and repair My pews and carpet My house and fix My organs but you walk about and miss the King of Glory who sits there all alone! Spread the messages on the tabernacle. I want them out!
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.

Jesus speaks: I write a message for the world. I write this message for you. I want to tell them to pray and not to underestimate what sufferings will befall them all. Pray constantly. You suffer this weather, you see the earthquakes and you still do not comprehend a power greater than yourself. I have all the power. I want men's minds and hearts to turn back to God. I want God first in their lives, but they are so blind. What do they need to shake them to such great power!
All things are under My control. There is not one thing that happens that I do not allow. You are so comfortable in such evilness. Why are you not on your knees asking, "Lord what is happening?" One suffering will come after another and you will, in your blindness, have to admit to My Might. My mother comes and people pay no heed. Spread these messages. Spread her messages. Do not think of what others think of you. They will know soon enough of their blindness. Do not spend a day without telling someone news about the Blessed Mother and why she comes. Tell all of My might and tell them to pray. Prayer is your weapon in a sick world. Open up the minds of your friends. What will rock these children off their rockers? If the earth moves under them, they still stay steadfast in their ways. So stubborn, indeed. They want to be blind because they do not want to change to the ways of God!
I am He Who comes to you this way. I am He Who wants you to pray constantly. I am He Who is calling out an alert for a change in your lives. I am He Who wants you to pray, yet you sit. You idle and hold on to such trivial things while the earth moves under your feet! I will rock the heavens. I will tell you of My might. Sit, you idle ones, but you will suffer for not praying. I am God. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, and I am ever present in your midst. You are blind and look for idle pursuits.
You have become so comfortable in this evilness that you do not even sit up and take notice. "Oh, it is okay. I don't like it, but it is okay." Your children are being poisoned by the world, as if someone gives them constant poison, and you worry about your sports and what have you!
Where in the world do you think you are going? Man thinks he is here to stay. He spends his days making his life "better" he thinks: more things--more things, more money, better bodies, clean breath, better smelling feet--oh, such insane pursuits! Let's make these bodies so perfect! Our lives should reflect the perfect life! Our children run races for glory every day, not even knowing the Ten Commandments! You make every moment a pleasure in itself. Make yourselves happy. Eat, drink, be merry, be beautiful, be smart, be perfect. Forget God--who is He? We have a life going on here and we are going to enjoy every moment! This society is sick, sick, sick. What they are enjoying is destroying their souls. Children are not even aware that I exist and their lives are totally secular. They are so blind. Oh, America, I lament everything you do. It is senseless and without meaning!
The Son of Man is in your midst and you do not even know who He is. What more can I say. Spread My good news that Jesus is Lord and He is Coming, that you had better turn your lives back to Him now. Mary, My mother, is coming. The sun spins. What do they need? Such attachments to their sick ways! Pray constantly. Tell others about Me. Tell them to read the Bible and amend their ways. Tell them that I am God and that they need to turn their lives back to Me. Tell them to repent and pray. My mercy is great and I am waiting with open arms.
Pray, America, pray. You will soon know My might if you continue your foolish ways. Every soul who is fixed in Me is My messenger. Go to the highways and byways and tell all: Jesus is Lord and He wants you to amend your lives. He will rock the earth and you will know His might. Time is short. Repent and pray constantly. What do I do to shake you? This earth is very insecure, here today, gone tomorrow. The only things that remain are the things of God.
I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. Hear Me, America. Listen and be attentive! I do not come to give a message for one or two. This is My message for all. You will know My might in big proportions. I will rock you off your rockers. You must turn your lives to God. You are not here for fun and sin and whatever you are doing. Oh, little ones, you miss My tremendous love for you. You have missed all the good I have for you. You are stubborn and willful. You are silly and sick. Pray for your brothers. Pray, pray, pray, pray, pray, pray. Offer everything you do as a prayer and know I never ever leave you! I love you, My child. This message is an act of love!
I gave Myself that you might live. I am He Who comes to deliver this message to you and you are blind. Look beyond the cup and the drink. This is your miracle, that I am truly present in the Eucharist.
I am here. Open your eyes and see Me here in your midst. Come to Me all who labor and are heavily burdened and I will give you rest. I am your God and I comfort you on your way. I am waiting for you to come and be in union with Me.
You, My faithful ones, can no longer be silent. Don't worry. Speak out. Others need you!
December 22, 1994
Jesus speaks: To all My dearest beloved ones at the Center and in the Shepherds of Christ:
You do not see the big picture. You do not see how your job is so important to My plan. Do you see your confusion? The devil presses in . He tells you how everything is hard and you are working so hard and not seeing any results. He tells you that you have not done enough. Oh, little loved ones, you are involved in the renewal of My Church. You see with such limited vision! I am using Shepherds of Christ to renew My Church throughout this world. I am lighting My world with the love that is being radiated in the many hearts that are coming to the Center and the Farm. You see, minute-by-minute, day-by-day, your frustrations and problems.
I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I write these intense love letters of My love for this world. You see only your little daily frustrations. You are so important to spreading My love! I am giving you messages for all My beloved souls of this world. My (Shepherds of Christ priestly) Newsletter will enkindle in priests the fire of My love. I will light this world with My light through you.
Oh, little loved ones, see the big picture. Pray for grace to know and love Me more. It is by your love of God that you will carry out My plan with ease.
You see little details. I call you to prayer. I call you to sacrifice. I call you to love and purity in your heart. I call you to union with Jesus and Mary. I call you to consecration of your heart to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I call you to live in the Spirit, to pray to the Spirit, to be alive with His fire, to be transformed into My great soldiers of love, so that your hearts will be on fire with the most burning love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
I call you to vision. I call you to doing the will of My Father, to saying "yes" as Mary said "yes" to the angel, total compliance with His will!
I call you to time spent alone with Me in front of the tabernacle and after Communion.
Oh, My beloved children, you are blind. You do not see that this is My world. The reality is that your every breath depends on Me. I am here. I am in your midst this day, no less present than the day Mary carried Me in her womb, no less present than the day I died on the cross. Open your eyes and see the love I am pouring out to you.
This (Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center) is My Mother's house. I write these letters to you from her house in Norwood. I am alone many times in My tabernacle here. You cannot light this world on your own. You need to pray for the grace to grow in love of Me.
I write these letters of My intense love to My precious souls. I want these letters to circulate. The lives of Myself and My Mother will become more and more alive to you as you read these letters. Pray the rosary with these meditations. I am begging you to listen to Me.
I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I have written five books of My intense love. I have given you such insights into My suffering and My Mother's suffering. It is through the rosary and these letters that the love of God will grow more and more in men's hearts. I beg you to take Me seriously. I love, I love, I love. I write songs of My love. I want these songs recorded.
I am an open furnace of endless love, on fire for My beloved souls. I write, I write, I write of this love. You do not take Me seriously!
Your city will shine with the love of Jesus in the hearts of those who go to the Center when you promote these letters. To hold these letters back from My beloved souls wounds My Heart. I wait. I long. I thirst for the love of My beloved souls. I write five books of love letters. I beg you, all of you involved in circulating and publishing these letters, to do so. Your churches will radiate with My love when you circulate these letters.
My Heart is on fire for love of you. I beg you this day to listen to Me. I am Jesus. I write of My ardent love for you and I am taken so lightly! Please circulate and read these messages! Please support these letters! What more must I do to tell you? What more do you want? I write five books of My love. I teach you the rosary to help Our lives live in you. The rosary is so important to the hearts of those who go to the Center and the members of Shepherds of Christ. The rosary and its mysteries must live in the lives of those who pray them. My renewal will come from the two Hearts. Listen to Me. Please circulate these letters and rosary meditations. They will lead many hearts to My love and the love of Mary.
Message given December 4, 1994
Jesus speaks: Do you know what it is to love someone and be treated coldly? Think of your most agonizing pain to your heart, think of Me loving so much those who totally neglected Me and hated Me to the point of death.
It is in understanding the agonies of My Heart that you understand My immense love. Love gives unconditionally, love gives, love does not exist to receive only. It is in giving that you receive, but love gives.
Do you give this way? The heart is a symbol of love!
My love burned for those who persecuted Me. You, My child, see My Heart open without the cross and crown of thorns -- My Heart is open to the point it is overflowing with fire. It is the hour of My greatest mercy and My greatest love. I pour the open furnace of My divine love upon you. You are saturated by My love --divine love, I give to you!
I wait, I watch, I want the love of My beloved souls!
You hold personal love letters from Me to My beloved ones concerning this tremendous love. If the whole world does not believe, I want you to believe, how I, Jesus, love you this day. It is in your believing you will be drawn ever closer into the abyss of My love for you. You were tired, you are being tested as My soldier of love. Love is unconditional, love gives, love has itself rooted in God's love. He is the source. All other roads to love are second to His divine love. Oh, divine love, burning love, coming from My open Heart and you cry and run to this world.
Rita, Rita, I write to be heard. I want these messages to circulate now. The delays will hold up the hearts that are dying for My love.
Hearts are cold and hard and need to know My divine love. I beg you to take Me seriously. You are the apostles to spread the devotion to My Heart. I beg you to circulate these letters of My love. Every day the Eucharist is attacked more and more --- I am referred to as a "symbol".
My true presence is attacked. People do not believe. Children are being taught the Eucharist is only a symbol.
Every book is different. They need to circulate for the priests and sisters, they need to circulate for My faithful loved ones, they need to be published.
I write to be heard. These messages are important to spread the devotion to My Heart. I beg you. They are important to understanding My relationship with My Mother. To hold up these books is to hold up the messages on the two Hearts. I beg you to circulate all the books. The fourth book is on the two Hearts and deep union, but the fifth book is a book of such deep love and understanding into My Sacred Heart.
I beg you to spread these messages -- all the messages. I will provide all money to publish books, three, four and five. The money is given so the proceeds from the books and songs can go to Shepherds of Christ. These books are needed for this ministry. People in the chapters need to read these books. I am asking you to take Me seriously. I write these messages for My beloved souls. I write these messages to spread devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart. The books are on disks and the money is provided. If you want your people to grow close to My Heart, you will publish these books of My deepest love. I beg, I ask, I plead, I am ignored. I am Jesus, your beloved Savior. I am thirsting for the love of souls. The Eucharist is being attacked. I remain with you in My deepest love. To hold up these messages is to hold up hearts that would know My love. I yearn, I thirst, I long for the souls to come to Me.
I am Jesus. I beg you to spread these messages which lead to My Sacred Heart, from My Sacred Heart, for My Sacred Heart, through My Mother's Heart. My Heart will triumph with the greatest love, it is through Mary's Heart many will turn to Me. These messages are written from Me and My Mother to spread devotion to Our Hearts. It is in the rosary many will turn their hearts to such love. These messages are written from the Heart of My tender Mother and Myself. I beg you to spread these letters.
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.
"What I say to you in the dark, tell in
the daylight; what you hear in whispers, proclaim
from the housetops." (Matthew 10:27)
Jesus speaks: "This is the day celebrating My Resurrection (Easter). The day of newness of life. I am Lord and Master. I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Tell My people to come to Me if they wish to experience life in abundance. I want to give all an ever greater share in the life of My Resurrection. Without Me you cannot be happy, nor have peace, nor have real joy. Tell My people to surrender to Me more and more. The more they do so, the more they will experience My love, wisdom, power, peace, joy, happiness, mercy, and goodness. Within My Heart My people will find these riches. I am Lord and Master! Please listen to My words."
Reflection: Through His life, death, and resurrection, Jesus has come to give us life, and to give us this life in abundance.
When we were baptized, we were incorporated into Christ and His Church. When we were baptized, we received the life of sanctifying grace. This life is a created sharing in the life of the Trinity. Truly, we are called to live a God-like existence according to the teaching and example of Jesus! It is our duty and our privilege to develop our life of grace--our Christ-life--through our participation in the Mass, through the reception of the sacraments, through prayer, and through all other good works. Indeed, we are called to love God and neighbor more and more.
What a glorious life has been given to us! In a spirit of thanksgiving, and together with Mary our Mother, let us always strive to know Christ more intimately, to love Him more ardently, and to follow Him more closely, so that He will always bring us to a closer union with the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit.
November 27, 1993
Messenger: I want to teach you about surrender. When I accepted the Father's will and proceeded through all the bitter cruelty before My death and then accepted My cross to My death, this was true surrender. There were not little parts of My life I wanted to enjoy and save and do instead of the Father's will. I did always, My whole life, His will.
He has a divine plan for you and you were created to carry out His wishes. To follow His will daily is His desire. His will is not one day you do it, then for five or six days you do yours. Doing His will is a by-the-minute, by-the-hour job. It is always doing what He is calling you to do. If He wants time with you, you spend it, even when you think you are too busy. He comes first. If He wants time with your children, you spend it with them, even if you get pulled away by others. I am calling you to do those things I tell you and prompt you to do in your heart. Everyone knows My will if he prays and stays close to Me. The others just do not feel right. Everyone in the world may tell you something else but you know My will because it feels right for you. It may not be easy. It may not be to your liking, but it is your feeling in your heart, "This is what He is calling Me to do."
He may give you a disease which almost forces you to come His way, but this is not force. Many, even when given helps to follow My will through sickness and crosses, still choose their own ways. One man is given a cross. He accepts it as from the God Who loves him. He learns, he grows, he is following My teaching. Another becomes bitter and hateful and hurts all those around him. He learns not one teaching and he follows Satan's lead to make him mean. When I give a lead to accept a cross, accept it!
I am teaching you valuable lessons in your crosses. Many think they are doing My will and they do many good works. Doing My will is not performing good works. Doing My will is doing whatever I am calling you to do. I may want you to do something else. When you keep choosing "good works" as you plan your own life, this is doing your work. You plan it. You are in control. You do good things and you therefore rationalize, "I am doing God's will." You are doing your will. You are picking. You are choosing. You choose good things-it is God's will. My will is only found from Me. I choose what you are to do. You follow Me. I tell you, in your heart. I tell you in your mind. I tell you in the silent times you are with Me. If you want to do My will, you have to slow down and be close to Me. Stop doing your own will. Do the will of God. You are receiving messages in your heart. You may never hear one message. You stay in your heads and tell yourself what you want to do. You gauge it, "Is it a good act?" Then you say it is God's will. God's will comes from God. It doesn't come from your figuring out what you would think is a good work and then deciding to do it.
God's will is not what you would always choose to do. But God's will is doing what He tells you, in love, to do. You love Him so much you comply with all He sends you. Doing His will is very hard. I wait to tell you what is God's will. Will you listen or will you figure it out on your own? If you want to do God's will, you have to be in communication with God. I am calling you to daily prayer in front of the tabernacle. I am calling you to Mass and Communion. I am calling you to quiet moments with Me constantly trying to listen and do God's will. Doing God's will is a full time job and it is hard enough to figure out His will in your own life. Each person needs to come and be taught by Me. Each person needs the Holy Spirit in his life. We work together to give you the will of the Father. His will is God's will. I, Jesus, want you to do the will of My Father. His will is My will for you.
God wants you to know you need God working in your life, enlightening you and being ever present to you. You will not know many things if you do not pray to the Holy Spirit. Pray to Him and beg for His gifts. It is His wisdom you seek. Don't go to people. Oh, you may get advice all right. Who does that come from? Go to people to do God's will-how silly is that one? Go to God to do God's will. Do not get discouraged. Be open to what He has in store for you. Don't figure it out and then go and ask Him if it is the right thing. Don't figure anything out. Wait on the Lord. Be close to Him. Have time with Him every day. Make Him first and last in your life. He is your all. He is your reason for being. He is Whom you turn to. He is God.
God has a plan for you. He can tell you. You must seek. Do not go to others to know the things of God. Rip the phones from the walls. Watch your conversation. It is there that Satan leads many down the wrong road. Conversation should be of Me. Now in many circles, if you talk of Me, people get up and leave. How sick they are. No one can make it in this world without constant connectedness to Me. I want you plugged into Me as you are dependent on every breath. I want you plugged in to Me with an open heart and an open line. Others do not dump garbage in My line to you. It remains open and clear. Your heart must be fixed on doing God's will. It is hard, hard work. Your time is not your time. I have loaned it to you to work for Me.
Seek to know the will of God so you are doing My work. I need you every minute doing My work. One smile may be that which turns a heart to Me. Don't let Satan creep in with worry and doubt and indecision. There is no decision. That is you. My ways are simple. Sometimes you fall. You are human. That is pride that tells you you must create the perfect image. Stay steadfast in Me and the image you create will take care of itself. You worry about everything. I tell you again, if you pray to Me and stay fixed to My heart, you don't have to do anything but let Me run your life and it will work beautifully. I don't make boo-boos. I am your most ardent lover. I want what is best for you. What you think you want may be very wrong for you and so you get it and it is a hard road to walk. You get what you want but it is drudgery and heartache. It was what you wanted, not what God wanted, and it was not right. It may have been a good thing, but not what He wanted for you.
God's way is joy, peace and love. To walk the path with God is to feel His presence and have joy even in crosses. Come walk with Me, talk with Me. Let Me run your life. Do My will. Make this your top priority. Then you will have peace and joy in your hearts. Your lives will unfold as a book to be lived and you will touch many hearts along the way. I love you so.
January 18, 1994 4:40 a.m.
Messenger: Dear Jesus, I am ready for Your work. I love You. I am sorry I didn't get to Mass because of the snow. I love You, Jesus.
Jesus speaks: You mustn't feel that I am displeased because you stayed home. You need to be with Me at home just as you are in church. Focus on Me and My love for you and keep making Spiritual Communions. I am Jesus. I am present. I talk, you write. I am He Whose bootstraps you are unworthy to tie. I am He Who loves you intently. If you only knew a little of My love, you would be preaching about Me from a high mountain.
You are he that wants one foot on the earth and one foot in the air. One foot will let go, but the other is not willing. I want both of your feet off the floor. That extra security you hold on to, just in case--that is what makes you worldly. I demand you let go entirely. You will then be free in My love. You will soar! As long as you think you are doing any of it yourself you stop yourself from the total freedom of letting go.
So here you are and I am telling you in your heart to do something and you decide to ask someone else, or you procrastinate, or you want proof. I don't give proof! The beauty of total surrender is to have no proof and total trust in Him Who truly loves you! "Well, Lord, I know you are telling me this." Then, do it child! Let go! Feel the freedom of flying. You are totally free. I am running the balloons. You, child, let go. You totally surrendered to Me and at first you were afraid, but here you are flying and it is such freedom! Take in the sights. Be lighted on your way. Do you trust Me like that? If you don't, you are still in control.
The will of The Father I make clear to you. You want that security the world says you should have. The world is not secure. It is built on a sinking ship. It may look secure, but in one instant your ship could sink and if you are counting on yourself, what will you do?
I sail your balloon to heights you never dreamed possible. Let go. I run the balloon. There may be a little wind, but the freedom of sailing, of knowing you will never lose your way because Jesus is holding you up, what power Jesus has over all and He holds you up! If you go out on a limb for Him, He supports the limb. "Scary," you say? "Freedom," I say! When you trust your interior promptings this much, when you know God is this close that you will do whatever He calls you to, despite the world, that is freedom. You are My special messengers. The world is teaching some awfully sick messages. People are getting literally sick. Become selfless, let Me possess you so I can do what I need to through you.
The world wants you to have security, insurance, jobs that they consider safe. "Be sure you have all these things to be sure." Sure of what? That in one minute there can be an earthquake and it all is destroyed? You are not sure! I have all the power. You are so silly to think you are sure of anything in this world.
There is only one thing you can be sure of: I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. Put your trust in Me and then you are sure. You may not receive a reward in this world, but you, for sure, will receive a golden reward in the next.
Let go, My children. Seek after only the things of God. Do not store up earthly treasures that wither and fade. Store up heavenly treasures that never die.
Let go, My children. I am waiting for you to let go with both of your feet. Jump into the arms of Him Who saves you. You let go, I catch you. God is there to hold you up lest you stumble and lose your way.
You walk the road to My love. It does not go down the solid roads the world has built. It is a road suspended in the sky. To know Me is to let go. Get off that road that appears to the world as solid. You know an earthquake can split that road in half. Walk My road with Me. That may mean the road seems to be missing at times. But you do not have your ducks in a row. Minute by minute you follow a road supported by Me. What freedom! To trust in Me, to do My work with support from Me is so free, but so uncertain for your earthly minds.
I tell you in your hearts. The world wouldn't even hear that which becomes to you a command to obedience. I tell you to do such things. The more I possess your soul, the more it becomes Me acting out of you. You know you are doing things you would not have done before.
This is Me. When you beg Me to possess your soul, you let go and I take over. You don't need security here. You only need the inner promptings and the trust in your heart that God has spoken and you follow His command.
How can I minister to this sick world if you choose to keep one foot on what the world calls "solid ground"? I want to possess you. I want to operate from your very being. I want to be in constant communion with you. I want you to hear the pipeline to Me every second you breathe. You will do this when you let go. I need to have full reign to operate from you as I see fit. Believe Me, I will not be doing what you would do.
When you see yourself moving selflessly ahead, doing My work, no questions asked, when you are listening to your information from within instead of from without, then your pipeline is open and working. Your answers are in your heart. You search for your answers in a senseless world, while you cover up the answers in your heart. Let Me possess you. Be selfless, be unattached. Operate as I am telling you in your heart.
"But," you say, "Oh, how do you test it?" That is the world. The more you know Me, you do not even think. It is I Who operate you. You do not even deliberate. I just work through you and you see that what you did was a vital move in My plan. But you did not even deliberate much. You were pushed in that direction and you knew you had to do it.
Child, listen to your heart. I am calling you to quiet union with Me. Silence with Me. Let Me change you and make you open. Say the Prayer for Union with Jesus, then let go and let Me do My work. I need your total submission. Your security is not found in thinking. It is found in your heart, in being so attached to Me that it is I Who live and act from your soul.
I operate you like a little windup doll. You don't worry and fret. You just go. You ask no questions. You are selfless and unattached and what you achieve is the work of the Son of Man.
I am Jesus. I am God. I am He Who wants to possess you and use you. When I do something, I do not make mistakes. Quit trying to do it yourself. Let Me operate you. Let Me do it all. Get both feet off the ground and say, "Lord, Lord, I give you My all. You use me, You run me, You possess me. I am Yours." Die to yourself and all the things of the world. You are he whom I want to possess and use to do My work. If you continue to do it your way, it is your doing a so-so job. Let go and let Me do My work as I want it done!
Don't ask questions. Don't jump back to the ground and say, "Oh, but it got scary out there with nothing under my feet. I just wanted to stand on solid ground." My ground is all that you must walk. You do not have a choice. My life in you is like being suspended in midair. It only feels good when you have decided that you will let go, that you know in your heart that trusting in Me is the only way. What freedom, to sail the sky and never ever look for security!
This is life in Me. You can't go to the world. Life with Me is like this. Life in the world is sick. You can't go there. You don't let go so you are not fully here. So, there is discontent in your heart. One foot on, one foot off. Surrender, My child. Let go with both feet and don't question! I will lift you up and lead you on your way. I need you to do My work in this world. If you become selfless and let Me possess you, you will operate just as I want you to because I will be doing the work.
Don't look for security! Pray constantly. I am as close as your breath. I am He Who powers you. You will not falter for I will catch you on your way. Your only job is to let go and trust. Know I am truly here and you are never abandoned. I love you so. You are doing My work with all your heart and I am powering your heart. Let go. Living in Me is not the security that the world preaches. It is like being in midair and knowing I am by your side and will catch you. If you feel your life is like this, being in midair, you are doing a great job. But it is not you at all. It is I Who sustain you. It is I Who act from you. You are My precious ones. You, I love to My death! Trust Me. I died for you. I am your beautiful Jesus. I am your spouse. I am ever by your side and I love you with a heart on fire for love of you. Surrender. Let go and you will be free in the Lord!
Messenger: Alleluia. And He made them His workers and they acted as He did in them and the world knew His love in mighty proportion through those who chose to serve the Lord. Alleluia. Our hearts are lifted to such heights in Him. His ways are secure!
Excerpt from Through the Year with Fulton Sheen
21 The secret of my power
Fulton Sheen: When I stand up to talk, people listen to me; they will follow what I have to say. Is it any power of mine? Oh course not. St. Paul says: "What have you that you have not received and you who have received, why do you glory as if you had not?" But the secret of my power is that I have never in fifty-five years missed spending an hour in the presence of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. Thats where the power comes from. Thats where sermons are born. Thats where good thoughts are conceived.
I dont mean top say that these hours have always been good. Ive had to walk up and down the church to stay awake. I once went into St. Rochs Church in Paris to pray an hour, when I only had two hours in Paris between trains on my way to Lourdes. There were only about five days a year that I can sleep in the daytime, and this was one. I sat down at two o clock, and I slept perfectly until three. When I awoke I said to the good Lord, "Did I make a holy hour?" And my angel said, "Yes, thats the way the apostles prayed the first one."
23 We need to fall in love with the Lord
There was a priest who had a high office in one diocese. He was removed from office principally because of alcoholism. He went to another diocese but continued to give scandal. He happened to come into a retreat when I was talking about the holy hour, and he made the holy hour from that time on. He died in the present of the Blessed Sacrament a month or two later. He had been battling drunkenness for years. But he overcame it in the end because of the expulsive power of the new affection. He fell in love with the Lord. Why do we not have zeal? Simply because were not in love. Once were on fire well do anything. When we love the Lord, we want to be with him. That is loves first effect.
24 Developing our spiritual senses
Another reason for praying the holy hour is that we need power. Power is born of silence and presence. As the Psalmist put it: "Be still and know that I am God." In prayer we shrug off the burdens of the world. We come in and spend an hour with the Lord and talk to him and listen and develop our senses of hearing and seeing and touching. Hearing: not doing all the talking. "Speak, Lord, thy servant heareth." Not "listen, Lord, thy servant speaketh". And the Lord does talk to us.
Seeing: "The things that are temporal are seen," says Paul. We have a different vision before the Blessed Sacrament . Remember the priest and the Levite that passed by the wounded man on the road to Jerusalem. They did not want to see him because seeing created responsibility. There will be a shrinking from the Blessed Sacrament whenever there is not a good spiritual attitude in the soul. But when we heighten our spiritual vision, then were doing something that the apostles had to do. They had to see beyond the veil of the flesh of our Lord in order to comprehend his divinity. And we have to see behind the veil of the species of bread to see his divinity as well. When we are used to seeing his divinity through the species of bread, then we will be better at seeing the image of God in people.
And finally, touch: touch is the mark of intimacy. Touch is communion. After many hours there begins to be a presence before the Eucharistic Lord, a deep sense of oneness with Christ. We are even reluctant at the end of many an hour to leave the Lord. Like the disciples of Emmaus we say, "Stay with us Lord, the day is far spent."<

Messenger: Make me selfless and unattached. I do not want to focus on myself at all. Selflessness is to let go of yourself entirely and live only for Him. Who will do His work? We will do His work. He is operating us. We selflessly comply with all He does through us!
To have union with Jesus is to die to yourself. He was so selfless. See Him hanging on the cross. His whole position, arms outstretched, hanging by His hands and supported by His crossed feet, total surrender to the will of The Father! This is what He beckons us to follow, total surrender of ourselves and our desires to the will of The Father.
I try to follow the will of The Father in little things, playing and praying with my children. This pleases Him so I feel it in my heart. It is in everything He tells me to do, no matter how small. He is so pleased with our surrender to His desire!
The way to heaven is the Way of the Cross. Our way has pitfalls and big hills, just like Medjugorje, but oh, when we reach the top, what our eyes behold! The power, the might, the vision! The climb was worth every minute of the struggle! Let us pick up each cross with such love for Him as He picked up His for us!
His power is the power of God. It radiates from our very being when we become selfless in His love. Power is emitted from our presence. Let us realize this is His might that lives within us when we come and sit with Him before the tabernacle. There is a mighty force that powers our actions. He charges us and we are operating on His power. Our hands become His hands, our faces and hearts His hearts. Total surrender, total selflessness.
Spread the good news! Shout it from the housetops! Jesus Christ is Lord and He is in our midst! He is in Communion. He is in the tabernacle. The same as the day He walked this earth, He lives this very day.
His might we behold in Him in Communion and in the tabernacle. He is dwelling, God-made-man, in our midst. Oh, how He is present, truly present, here on this earth this day!
He lives in you. You have the opportunity to make Him a vibrant force operating your soul. Sit you no more idle, little ones. His work is at hand. Spread the good news. Feed the soul in darkness. Shout His words from the housetops. Jesus is Lord and He dwells among His people this very day.
Are we alone in this sick world? Do you feel helpless to undertake such work? He goes with you where you go. He is your guide. Never are you alone on your journey. You are accompanied by the hand of God.
Jesus speaks: Oh, My people! Oh, My people! Listen to My promptings here! I am a living God! Your society might be godless, but it is in the hearts which have been infiltrated by Satan's hand. My might is far beyond any work Satan could accomplish. I am dwelling in your midst and I come to save My beloved ones, every last soul. You have a message to deliver to the world that Jesus is God and He dwells among you this very day!
Let Me possess and operate your hearts. Seek only after your union with Me. Make this your top priority. I work through the selfless soul. I will work and operate you. You needn't fret or fume. Your job is simple. Come to my altar every day. Be with Me in adoration and I do the work through you. You cannot do the work. The might that is needed in this world must come from the hand of God. I will operate you and do all I need to through you.
Quit trying to do it yourself. Put all your trust in Me and watch your life fly. You cannot fly. Only I can make you fly. You need to be operated by My might to fight this evil world. My might is in front of the tabernacle. Be there for My love. I lament your busyness. In one second I can snatch your lives from you. No one has returned to finish the job they left.
Oh, little ones, love of God, love of one another! Let Me do My work. Quit trying to do My work for Me. You cannot do in a thousand years what I can do in a minute. The answer is your total union with Me!
I loved you to My death on the cross. Come and carry your cross with Me. My way is hard. There are bumps. There are hills. They are your mighty lessons. Ask at every moment, "What doth He teach me here?" When you are frustrated and you follow yourself around, surrender to the moment. Stop and learn the lesson. It is in the worst moments your lessons are being taught loud and clear. Patience, My children. I teach you patience and trust. Fear is dissolved. The fire of love is enkindled. I teach you so sweetly that which you need to know.
Harken, I come into your midst this day. Jesus Christ, the Son of Man. I come and dwell to be your guide. I come to teach you mighty lessons. My lessons are your way to Me. Embrace My cross. Accept all I send you as coming from Him Who loves you. Grow in your trials. Run and do not get weary. I am your God. Oh, sweet surrender! You will know My love, My little ones. You will know My might. You will be lost in Me and I will dwell in You and operate You to do the mighty work at hand!
Messenger: Alleluia, Alleluia. Love Him Who is mighty! Alleluia.
Song: Turn to Me
February 16, 1994 Ash Wednesday
Jesus speaks: From the very depths of your soul, I sanctify you. I come to you, God in your heart, and you are made clean. It is in this cleansing that you behold God. He comes to you in your heart and He makes you holy. You are a mere mortal but He raises you to such heights. Who are you, My child, that I love you so much? You are favored and honored by My presence in your soul. Alleluia.
Come and be fed. He gave them manna from heaven. Not by bread alone does man live, but by every word that comes from God!
I am Almighty God. I am your all. I am here in My entirety. Where Jesus is, there is God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Do not try to understand the mystery. Try to experience our immense love, Father, Son and Holy Spirit loving you. And Mary, My mother is always where I am!
Oh, children, can your heart be sad with such honor bestowed on you? Lift up your hearts to God and realize that that which is in your breast is the one, true, magnificent God. He wants to be with you with immense love. Such honor and dignity for you! I am the Alpha, I am the Omega, I am God, child. I come and dwell in your heart. God comes to you with such love and you worry about people and things of this world.
I tell you worry is from Satan and he wants you bowed down. Be filled in your hearts with the immensity of the love of God and live, child. Take off your sack cloth and ashes and spread the good news. Jesus, God, is here and He is dwelling in your midst. He is present in the Eucharist. He is God, present there for love of you.
Wake the village, sound the gong. They are deaf and blind. They think this world is their end, when I am all they ever need! Stand on the roof, proclaim My glory! Tell all I am God and I dwell in your midst. Don't miss an opportunity to spread the good word. Do not flounder around and look for senseless things when God dwells here.
Blare the trumpet, roll the drums, be attentive to My word here. Spread these messages every day. Oh, how hungry they are and how they need to get these love letters from Me. I fill you with My immense love. You give it to your brothers. You possess a key to unlock the hardened heart. You have the medicine for those who are in despair. Do your job, children. It is in serving Me that you attain the greatest reward. All else is of no account.
Spread My words in the streets and villages. Go to the country highways and byways, churches, synagogues--anywhere there is a human creature! Let not your moments be in vain. They are hungry and in need of My words here. You are being called by Me to do My work now, this very moment, this day. Do not tarry, for their days are at hand. Your days must be filled with spreading My words to all who have breath!
Your work is at hand. Do not busy yourself with nonsense. You must do what I ask, and now. Souls are at stake, their lives are at hand, and you possess the key to their lives. Hold not back. I am God and I need you to work this moment, this day, to spread My gospel for Me.
Circulate My letters. Give out My love. You have a job and you work for God. No one is as important as God and I am calling you. This is an urgent message to you, My chosen ones. Spread My message. Hold not back. If they love you or persecute you, pay no mind. I am He Whom you seek, He Whom you love, He Whom you want to please. Turn to Me and I will never turn away.
Turn to Me!
February l9, 1994
Jesus speaks: I tend to your every need. You need to be so selfless and unattached that you are compelled by this mighty force. It is fire! I am filling you with fire that comes from Me!
I am operating you. Do not be afraid. Let Me have full reign. I am using you to do this for Me. I want My love messages to be out. You will act, not like yourself, but as I am acting in you. Do not be attached to the glory or the persecution. Act only for Love of Me.
Oh, how I love you, sweet one! I died and gave you the last beat of My heart, My last breath, My last thoughts for love of you. Think of this and move full steam ahead. I am your support. I am almighty. You are My precious daughter.
I power you and I run you. You will run and not get weary. You will fly on eagles' wings and I am by your side. I am inside of you, behind you, before you. You go with an army of angels to do My work. Do not fear. That comes from Satan. You are powered by My love. You have a job to do.
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, speaks to you this very day. Harken and do as I command: surrender, be selfless, let Me possess your soul and operate your very being.
I love you, sweet one. You are never alone.
February 20, 1994 6:30 a.m.
Jesus speaks: You are My beloved child. I come with such strong and ardent love. Cast away Satan who is already working to give you doubt. You must remain constantly steadfast in Me. I am a rock. I am a fortress. I never wane or bend. I am the same this moment as always. Your thoughts of Me need to be this strong. I am the rock. You base all your faith, hope and love in Me. Your mind must be in a constant state of union with Me.
This is achieved by thinking of Me, My Love, My death, and how I loved you to My death. Satan wants you bowed down and focused on your imperfections. You are human. You are not perfect. If you have been thoughtless, self-centered, unkind, if you have any impurity, think about them and ask Me to take them away. Then forget them and move on, doing My work.
Do not dwell on how you should be perfect, that you are not and are disappointing to Me. That is Satan! You are not perfect. Admit it with humility. You are a creature that thinks of yourself. Selflessness is a constant struggle. Pray for strength and help to become selfless. This is how it is achieved. You do not do it. You pray and practice discipline in yourself. You are not perfect and I love you always. I love you in your faults, just as I love you when you are good. I love you unconditionally. It is pride to think you are perfect. You are not perfect. You are constantly struggling with the ego part of you. Pray to be absorbed in My heart. Pray for union with Me. Pray to die to yourself and remain only in My love.
Your actions must always be focused on your love for Me. Constantly tell yourself, "I act only for the love of Jesus. I do this for love of Jesus. I want to do God's will. I do not want to promote myself or feed myself. I do not want to give in to selfish interests, I want to act every moment only for the love of Jesus. I act for the glory of God. I pray for this, to be selfless in God."
I am the Alpha. I am the Omega. I am all there is. When you feed yourself, your glory lasts a moment. When you act for the love of Jesus, your love is given to your brothers and your actions are forever imprinted in the journal of heavenly treasures.
Do you act for love of Me and Me alone or does the devil tell you that you need recognition for yourself, that you need to be loved by all? I tell you to love God above all things. Do all for the glory of God and all falls into line.
Remain selfless and unattached to all things here. Do not be attached to anyone or anything. To do so takes you from Me. Your relationships should be out of love of Me. Love does not seek its own way. It loves the other for the love it can give them. You give My love to others. You should not, therefore, be attached to anyone. I am the beginning. I am the end. He who truly loves Me can let go of every single person or thing and still accept this as the will of God and not lose his peace.
Time is so short! Your practice of selflessness will help you for the days ahead. You must pray the Prayer for Union with Me.
I am so loving and so good to you! All I send you is from a good and loving God. Accept all you are given from Him Who loved you to His death.
I love you, child. Look how those in Medjugorje had to give up all their attachments. Some lost their children. They lost all their clothes and homes. They didn't have clothes to make themselves warm. They did not have food and went hungry! Oh, you don't even know what you are attached to! You think it is little things. It is big things: food, clothes, water, air, children, houses, cars, hot water, cold water--all your comforts. In one second they could be taken from you as they were taken from those in Bosnia. Are you this strong, that you would turn to love of Me rather than despair?
I ask you to give up little things, attachments-to-your-comfort things. You will know days of struggle and you will be put to many tests. All the struggles you suffer now will strengthen you for the tough road ahead.
Be unattached to any worldly possessions. Be unattached to people. Your top concern is your union with Me and Me alone. You love others only to bring them to Jesus, not to get things for yourself.
Do not give in to selfishness. Be totally selfless. Carry the little crosses I give you. They are nothing compared to what is to come. Comfort? Think of doing without water or electricity. Are you attached? Think of wanting food and not having any and watching your children suffer and being unable to give to them. You are so comfortable! You do not have any idea of what you possess. You are so attached and so self-centered. I say to you, die to yourself and to the little things you are so attached to. Give up that cup of tea you so ardently crave. This is to die to self. Do it with great love of Me. Do not share your sacrifice with others.
When your mind wants to worry and try to figure things out, give it up to Jesus and continue to do as I ask. Pray and play with your children. You do not need to talk so much. Give up the conversation which pads your ego and play cards with your children even when you want to do your own will. This is to die to oneself, to want so much to check it out, when I am making My way very clear. Check it out in silence with Him Who has all the answers. Why not go to God directly yourself?
These jobs I have given you require you to act only for love of Jesus. They require time with Me alone in front of the tabernacle. They require time alone with Me at home. Stop, go to a room, close the door and plug your phone into My Sacred Heart. This will create your dependency on Me. I know all things. I am almighty. I am all powerful. I am loving you every moment and everything you learn from Me is exactly right.
Practice this trust in Me. Trust is developed as a staircase to Me. You practice trust, then you turn the next one over and practice trust again, then you, when you are tempted to think and go to others, practice trust and, oh, how our union grows!
Pray the Prayer for Union with Me. Oh, I am your support. I am your love. I am the best friend. I have all the answers. I know you. I know your past, your future. I know your heart in ways that you do not know yourself.
Turn to Me and Me Alone. Give it all over. Refuse to worry. Refuse to give in to the ego. You need to focus on Me and My love. All things fall into line when you do this. I am God and I am working in your life. You mess it up. Quit working and let Me do as I want. You focus on My love and being My light in the dark world.
Satan wants you distracted. He wants you absorbed in everything else and not doing My job for you. Your job is love of God, love of others.
Practice letting go. Keep constant union with Me. Oh, how I love thee! If you could only comprehend, you would take your feeble hearts to Me! I am your all. I am your ardent lover. I have all the answers for your life. Oh, little one, I love--LOVE--you! Focus on Me. I can give you the love you are looking for. I can give you your answers. I can give you peace. You will never on this earth have what your soul craves, but you know that I am He Whom you seek. I am the God of your souls. No false gods give you any peace. Come to Me, My beloved. I want you to come to Me.
I love you. Jesus Christ.
February 21, 1994
Jesus speaks: You are My servant. You are My very dear servant. I am coming to you with such love. Focus not on any distractions that Satan places in your path. Focus on Me, the Eternal Word, come to you, My child, with great love and eagerness to deliver My message to you.
I am He Who wants you to place all worries aside. Any kind of mental anguish is indeed a work of Satan. He tells you things in your mind, he wants you to get angry, he wants to create division, he wants you to take your focus off of God, he is constantly full of talk in your head to create a problem for you.
You are My ardent love. You take your thoughts and discipline them. Focus on My Passion. See Me bloodied, bruised, beaten, crowned with thorns, My hands tied. See Me weak and worn and and trudging on My way to Calvary. See Me agonizing over love of you. Think of this, My child, how much I love you to come to this earth--God, to be born a mere human for love of thee and then to suffer such brutality for love of you.
I loved you to My death on this cross. I withstood such horridness, profuse bleeding, wounds, insults, mistreatment, kicking, spitting and poking. I, God-made-man, walked this awful journey to Calvary. I walked it alone. I watched My mother suffer such anguish! This alone was such torment! What more could I do for love of you? What more can I say now? What more do you want? What more, My child?
It wounds My aching heart, but for love of you I sit as a prisoner in the tabernacle and I wait for you. I wait, I wait, I wait. My intense love bids Me to wait for you!
What do I say to you? I, God, come to you in Holy Communion. I love you unconditionally with such love you cannot even fathom and you turn away and run after such senseless things. I am lamenting the loss of your love. I am lamenting the time you spend in other things, and for what? It is God Who waits for you. I wait! I am here, God-made-man, Jesus Christ! I wait, I wait!
You have 24 hours a day and you do not have one hour for the Son of Man? What do you do? What is important to you? I am God! What could be more important than God, Who is waiting for you? I am Number One. The First Commandment says, "I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not have any gods before Me."
What is your god? Who speaks to you? Whom do you spend your time with? Where are your thoughts? Whom do you ponder over in your mind? What things are so important to you? Do you listen to the First Commandment? Do you not hear My Commandment to love God and love one another? Is this your concern? What are the Commandments to you, little things you follow after you do what you want first?
Do you do the will of The Father? He wills you to keep the commandments. An act of following My will pleases Me far more than a day of mortification. Are you doing My will or yours? Do you pick your good works, prayers, etc., and is doing what you will a good thing? Or do you earnestly sit in silence and listen to the promptings I give you in the heart?
"Oh, I have time to recite all these prayers, but not to sit in silence and listen to You, Lord." I am calling you to love of God and love of your brothers. Loving God is action from the heart. You sit, you in silence, with your lover, and you ponder Him with ardent love. If you want to recite prayers, it only comes from great love first. It comes from great, ardent, longing and loving of the heart, not sitting and endlessly doing your quota today. To do your prayers every day is great if you are doing it out of intense love for Me. You must have this great love to pray these prayers from the heart!
Many say prayer after prayer after prayer, a task they give themselves like brushing their teeth. I call you to love of God. Love is from the heart. I want your love. I want you to sit and be with Me as an ardent lover. I do not want you heartlessly reciting prayers at Me and ignoring Me. Would you do this to your lover?
I want a love relationship with Me. I want you to know I am a true person. I want your time with Me to come from great love. You long to come and sit with Me. I am real. I am a person. I am Jesus, sitting in the tabernacle waiting for you!
Do you love God first? Do you know what love is at all? Is your love for Me a chain of prayers you say every day, just to put in your time? What lover would put up with a relationship like the one you are giving Me? Do you follow My command to love God and love your neighbor? I do not say to spend time doing busy prayers with God and just tolerating your brother.
Love is an action from the heart. It evolves from such longing and heartfelt feelings. I call you to love God. What are you doing to follow this commandment?
I am a heart on fire for love of you. I am the lover Who is waiting for you in every tabernacle in this world. I am waiting, My beloved, with a heart on fire for love of you and what are you doing, little ones? You come in a rush and you throw prayers in My face. You pray to Me at bedtime, half asleep, and your mouths are running like a machine. This, child, is love? What lover would stay around for such coldness. You treat Me coldly. My heart aches for love of you, little one. It is a burning furnace on fire with ardent love--hot and burning, yearning, deepest love--and you, My child, come with such indifference and coldness.
I want your love. I want to share a love affair with you. My heart aches over this coldness and indifference. My heart is in such anguish for love of you. Some in their busy lives never even come or do not even know Me. My heart is aching. You know of the treasure here. Do you spread the love of God to your brothers or do you worry about what they may think? You can talk about the weather and the sick society, but you can't talk to a stranger about the love of God!
If you love your brother, you will preach My love in your very being. You will not get bowed down by Satan and cast a dark shadow on this world.
You, little ones, don't know how to love God and you don't know how to love your brothers. Listen to Me here and be taught My ways! I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God and I am speaking to you. These are the words of Jesus Christ for His beloved ones
I want to teach all about love, My love for them and their love for Me. Do you know how to love Me? My beloved ones come, day after day, and recite prayers in My face and don't have any actions in their hearts. This is not love. It is coldness. I call you to love in your heart, burning for the God Who is so good and loves you so much He died for you! I gave My life for you. I love you this way this very day. My love never changes. I burn for love for you.
Preach the Real Presence. Shout it from the housetops: Jesus is the Lord. He is God and He is with you this very day. He waits for you in Communion with ardent love.
I am God. You have the true treasure. Is anything of any more account than this? You are so blind and so silly.
Shout it from the housetops, "Jesus is Lord and He is in the Eucharist and in the Tabernacle."
Your King waits for you. Preach the True Presence. Mary leads you to the ardent, burning love of her Son, the love of Jesus. Alleluia.
I am Who am. I am your God!

Messenger: Surrender all through the Passion! Surrender! Tied to a pole, beaten, led away, He sat without any comment and they put a dirty robe on Him. He sat in surrender while they hammered the crown of thorns onto His head. Surrender--while they taunted Him and laughed at Him. Surrender--gave Him a cross, hit Him, kicked Him, spat on Him, struck Him with a stick to make Him get up, treated Him so awfully. Surrender--they led Him away, with Him totally complying to His death on the cross. How He hung there in total surrender!
Jesus speaks: When they persecute you for My sake, great will be your reward! Stand your trials. I was as the innocent lamb led to the slaughter. In the act of total submission to the will of The Father, I gave My life for His will. Say the Our Father. Thy will be done, Father. This, doing His will, is worth more than a thousand prayers. This pleases Me, The Father and the Holy Spirit.
Surrender your lives. Make your lives an act of total submission to God. Be as the little lamb being led to the slaughter. You will suffer persecution for My sake. My way is not to take up the sword. My way is in submission.
Do you see Me hanging in the act of total submission? Follow Me. This is My way for you. You want your own way. Follow My will. This weighs far more than any mortification. This pleases Me. I call you to total surrender. See Me dying on the cross in compliance with The Father's will. You surrender your lives to The Father's will. This is your guide: your inner promptings on what tells you His will.
You must be before Me in the tabernacle. In a million years you will not acquire the knowledge you obtain there. I am God, My chosen ones, I want to guide you. You cannot find your way without the silence daily in front of Me. All will work when you obey Me now and listen to Me and spend time with Me in silence. Do not read prayers and say prayers only. This is not sitting with Me in union! You need to be in front of Me and not busy. This is how you will acquire your knowledge.
Messenger: I love You, Jesus.
There are as many hearts as personalities. The more I love God, the more I am able to love. He is all love. All love is rooted in Him.
If I am mortifying myself and praying and doing the sacrifices I want, but God is telling me to do something else, I am not doing His will. I am picking and choosing and deciding I must do this prayer, that one. I am not doing His will.
He is calling you in front of the tabernacle, "Can you not wait one hour with Me?" No. I want to do this sacrifice. I am doing my will, my good acts. Performing good acts is not necessarily doing God's will.
March 5, 1994 8:00 p.m.
Note: When I received this message He was full of fire. His picture was glowing and His face was beautiful. He was lifelike, His face completely different from the one in the picture.
Jesus speaks: I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am ablaze with love for all. I am Jesus, the Son of God. Come and bow low, bend your knee, for I am the Son of God. Worship Me. Adore Me. Honor Me. Preach, preach My love to all. I am afire with this love. I am on fire.
I am the Son of God. See Me with the brightest light on fire for My beloved ones. I am on fire. I am Jesus, the Son of God. My heart is a burning flame, My love abounds. From the ends of the earth shout My endless love. Do not lose minutes to preach My words here. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am on fire. I am alive. I am lighted up for you. Look into My eyes and behold Jesus, the Son of God. You will provide a team to bring all back to this burning fire that is in My heart for love of all My beloved ones. Do not tarry for I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus on fire this very day for the love of all My beloved ones.
I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I talk to you now. Preach My urgency. I am begging you to get this message out to all. I am begging you, My little ones. You must comply with Me now. Praise My name, worship Me, I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
By your example you teach the mightiest lessons. As you are in your heart is how you are in this world. If you busy yourself about our love affair, all works for the greater glory of God. If you spend time with Me in union, you preach the gospel in your being. If I live in your heart and you live in Me, then I am He Who operates from your very soul.
Oh, what a joy to your brothers to behold the love of Jesus being taught through your actions. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I want to operate from your very being. This is your gift to this world, to be so united in Jesus that you preach His word through your being.
Oh, so simple, you say? One thing that pleases Me is your union with Me, the ardent, longing love you give to Me. To sit and tell Me how you long to be with Me and want Me so much! I want a love affair with you. I want emotion, heartfelt emotion.
I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am a burning fire, a furnace of love. Come to Me with longing.
I am not a little, inactive love. I am on fire for love of My beloved ones. Preach emotion, heartfelt love. I gave My life. How much emotion is that? To lay down My life for love of you!
I am a fire of love. I want emotion. I want them to know how I long for them. How I wait, a prisoner in the tabernacle waiting for My beloved ones!
I want action, action from the heart, not to talk about the love of God and, "Oh, He loves you," but to say, " He is alive, He is on fire, He longs, He cries out to you to come and love Him"!
Preach emotion. People are thirsty from the depth of their souls for this emotion. They are begging to be fed.
My love is fire. It is alive. Talk about My love. Give them the strong emotion I feel for them. This world is numb in its feelings.This world is not alive. It is hard and cold. You must start a fire burning in their hearts. When they come to Me in Communion, their hearts are skipping beats with excitement to receive God, truly God-the one, true, magnificent God-made-man-in Jesus Christ.
How much love and emotion do you think it took the Son of God to be born a mere human on this earth? How much emotion to suffer a brutal death for love of you? This is My life: to be born a human, to die a brutal death, to resurrect into new life on the third day. Is this what the little mimicking mouths that come say, in a monotone, about the love of God?
The love of God is active. I, a prisoner, sit this very moment in all the tabernacles in this world out of ardent love for My beloved ones. I, God, sit and wait for your love. Little prayers you pray, half asleep, in a monotone-lip-service! No action from your heart! Look at Me. Look at My life. Action from the heart, the Heart of Jesus.
I want an active relationship with you. I wait for a heart ablaze with ardent love. You sit on the shoreline throwing little words at Me.
Love is embracing, love is entwined, love is vibrant and forceful, love is burning, love is longing, love is wanting, love is thinking about the other and talking about that person at all times. Love is an active force. It is on fire. I am God. The love I have for you is inexpressible in human terms.
You sit and throw words at Me. They are cold. You talk about My love and the love of God as you talk about the rain that is coming down or your dirty socks.
I am God, child. I am the Son of God and I love you. If a lover professed such love to you, would you not run to His waiting arms?
You have a soul that craves this ardent love. You were created for this purpose. Spin your silly wheels and watch them turn and get you nowhere.
I am all you seek. Nothing satisfies the hungry soul but the love of God. Spin your wheels and watch yourself go nowhere. I am He Who fits your soul like the perfect glove. You are he who searches everywhere but in the right place.
Oh, little ones, listen! Emotion! Action from your heart! Enkindle your love affair with this ardent lover. I am a furnace on fire for love of you, My beloved servant. I need your love affair with Me. My love will shine from your very being. Pray this prayer constantly for union with Me. I loved you to My death. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Ready yourself, My children, for I am strengthening you for the days ahead.
Song: To Jesus Heart All Burning
March 7, 1994 4:00a.m.
Jesus speaks: You are the city set on the hill. You will shine with the intimate love of Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am He Whose bootstraps you are unworthy to tie.
I am Jesus and I loved My little ones to My death. Do you know even a little about what it is to give your life for someone? Do you think of yourself and ponder yourself being this selfless? People cannot even take one hour to sit with Me. The world has made you all blind. You do exactly as you want. Meditate on My sorrowful Passion. Read My meditations on the rosary. This was My life, given for you, My little loved ones. I gave My life for you and you want more? You want more proof and signs, yet you cannot even pray a few moments after Communion!
I am the Master. I taught you about selflessness and surrender. Look at My position on the cross. Yet you hold back. You want your comfort. You want to make the world your end! Oh, you give a little. You give Me what you dole out, a little here, a little there, and say, "Okay, Lord, I'm good. I pray prayers. I spend my life doing holy things, but I am in control of what and how much I give you. I am in control, Lord. Aren't you satisfied?"
I am only satisfied when you surrender your all to Me! You give Me such little bits and pieces and you pat yourself on the back and look at the sick world and say, "Well, I am pretty holy." This is not the point. You judge, you decide, you do your own will! This is you, playing the game of running your life! You give here, you keep there. I want your all. I want your time spent alone with Me in front of the tabernacle. I want you to have an ardent on-fire love affair with Me. When you love, you give. You say to your lover, "Oh, anything you ask for I will give to you." If you ask for my shirt, I will give you my cloak as well because I love you this much!"
You don't know about love. You control your relationships with Me. Then what hurts My aching heart is how you talk about the love of God. There is not love in your actions. If you came and spent your life with Me, if you freely gave sacrifices for Me, this is love!
You look to the world and you judge yourself as doing so much. Look to Me, hanging on the cross, and judge yourself by My standards. I call you to an ardent love affair with Me. I call you to love--love of God, love of one another.
You do not have love for one another because you do not love God first. Love gives its all. Love does not seek itself. Love gives freely!
I died on the cross to teach you how to love. I am the Master. If you look to the world and judge yourself, you are not learning any lessons from Me. You must look to Me to learn from Me.
Look at Me on the cross, My arms outstretched, hanging from the cross. I gave My all! I gave Myself for love of you. I held not back a little. I held not back and I, God, could have stopped it all, but I gave you freely from the bottom of My heart with greatest love for you!
This, My sweet ones, is love. I showed you the way. I showed you surrender. I am Jesus Christ and I write to you. Do you listen? Oh, you, in your busy lives, do not surrender to Me even now.
What do I do to shake My beloved ones? You are all blind and dense. Look at how attached you truly are. You do not surrender. You do your will, you do your thing. I tell you over and over again to come and pray with Me for long periods. I tell you to pray after Communion. I write about praying before the tabernacle, but you do your will. You go to the world. You ask your questions there. You look for answers from each other. You do not surrender even one hour of your time.
I come and you receive Me, the Son of God, in Holy Communion! Do you stay and sit with Me or do you do what you want? I died for you, yet you cannot let go of even little things.
I am Jesus, Son of God. If you who profess to love Me cannot give of your life to Me, how do you expect others to learn from you? You teach as you are. You teach in your actions. Your actions are selfish and centered on self. I call you to denial of self and love of God.
One person fixed to the true life of Christ can move a mountain. You follow the world and try to do it yourself.
I preach coming to Me and sitting with Me. I, God, have all the answers. No one listens. What do I do to shake My faithful ones in their comfort?
I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. I want to dwell in you and operate with the power of God. I invite you to My altar. I sit and wait with all the answers and you, in your pride, tell Me, "I am too busy."
Busy yourself for your day is at hand and you will know My might! I will shake the earth and you will listen. Then you will listen, but where were you when I gave you forewarning? You are waiting for the big boom. I am calling you now to listen to Me here.
Play your safe game. Waste your time. I am God and I am talking to you. You do it your way. I sit with the answers. Every answer is given here. I want My beloved ones to read these letters. I grow so tired of your foolishness. I am God and you are busy. Die to yourself, child. I showed you the way. I lead. You must follow Me!
I am your God. You shall have no gods before Me! Do you pray to Me in silence? You want your answers given to you. You want My love given instantly as you demand. I am waiting for a love affair with you. The fire of love is enkindled. Love is time spent together. Lovers sit together for long hours and learn to know one another. Would you give so little of yourself to develop a love affair with Me? I sit, I wait. I am there at every moment in all the tabernacles of this world, and you are busy!
Time is so short. One moment and it is up in smoke.
All that remain are the things of God. You are here to know, love and serve Me. I am sending out an urgent plea to publish all these messages--now.
These letters will turn the cold hearts to love. Do you not think I have all the power? You tarry, you deliberate. I grow tired. I am God and no one listens. You want Me your way. You want Me to come your way.
I sweetly tell you, in My gentle love letters, that I come, Jesus, the Son of God, gently in Communion. You are numb and blind. You want Me to roll drums and blare trumpets, but I come in the quiet moments. I roll no drums, I blare no trumpets. I come and you miss My calls!
What do I do to shake you? I, in all My might, can rock you off your rockers. I try to prepare you but you are too busy. Hold on to your last piece of dust and watch it go up in your face!
I am Jesus Christ, Son of God and I write to you and who pays heed here? This should tell you of your attachment to worldly things. You want proof. You look the other way. I am God and you contain the mighty medicine for this sick world. I am Jesus, the Son of God. Do you listen? Look at Me, dying on the cross. I gave My all for you. Do you not think I would send a mighty medicine this day for you? You are so blind. You do not listen.
I, God, talk here to you this very day.
March 8, 1994
Jesus speaks: My love is alive and I am present in the Eucharist. When all enkindle a deep and ardent love affair with Me, it will be I Who operate from their souls. They are all afraid. They are depending on themselves. They are closed and shut down. They live from their heads and not from their hearts. I am on fire with love of them. When they come in the Eucharist and open their hearts, I fill them with My fire. My love affair with them takes time, time after Communion, time in front of the tabernacle.
Those who want to tell you things do not spend all day in prayer with Me. They are full of self and full of fear. I am making you selfless. I want to possess your soul. When you operate from self, you get yourself. You are a mere human. When I possess your soul, I, God, operate from you.
The Church is dying in spirit. You are going through motions. I am alive and I want to love you and live in you. The mighty medicine is the love of Christ radiating with fire from the hearts of all. I want My Church to sing songs from their hearts. Songs create emotion. Love is emotion. Sing songs from your heart, love songs to Me. Read the readings from the love you have enkindled in your hearts for Me. The word of God is Life. How is it read? Feed the people through the word of God. Read it with such love. Love My words. Love Me.
You do not love Me. You go through motions. I want an on-fire love affair with you. I am waiting for our love. The Mass is the most glorious event. You need to love the Mass, love to pray it, love to sing it, love to be there, wait to go and look forward to it all day and anticipate our union in Communion with breathtaking feelings, "Oh, God comes to me! My ardent lover comes into My body!"
Oh, you are all turning numb and I give you so much. Yet you run after foolish things. God comes to you in the Mass. Preach the love on-fire, the ardent love of God, to My little ones.
I am Jesus, the Son of God. I was born a mere human for love of you. I died for great love of you. You are missing the emotion. I gave My life for love of you! Come and share our love affair. I wait, I wait, I wait. You are cold, you are indifferent. I loved you to My death.
Get these letters out. Every day souls are being lost while you deliberate. The Church is full of fear. Do you think I would come this way and then not give you what you need?
Masses are being said that could be on fire. Every day lost is so much time. You are getting your affairs in order for this life. It can go up in smoke in an instant.
You are wasting valuable time. These messages need to circulate. You need time in front of the tabernacle, not l0 minutes. You need to read these messages. I, God, talk to you and who listens?
You are so full of self, so attached to this world. You do not want to give up your ways. You will suffer. You will have to give up your ways. You are wasting valuable time with these messages. Souls will be turned around. It will spread like wild fire. I am alive. This message on the Mass would change the way you attend the Mass. Who sees it? Who knows?
You are full of self. You get up and read the Word of God and think about yourself. You sing the songs and think about your voice. You do not sing from the heart because your lives are centered on yourselves. You are attached to your lives. You do not have time to come and be with Me. I tell you to be selfless. I tell you to surrender. I tell you to quit doing it yourself. You continue to operate the way you want. You do your own wills.
I tell you to be selfless. Live for God first. I am the Lord, thy God. Thou shalt not have any gods before Me. When I am first in your lives, everything else works out.
When you read the Word of God because of your love of God, that is when the world will feel the love of Jesus! Listen, My precious ones, I died for you because of My intense love for you. I was born a mere human because of My intense love for you. This is emotion. I want you to love Me. I call you to love. Do you love Me or just throw little prayers at Me? I want the love of an ardent lover. I want you to think about Me with such burning in your chest. I want you to talk about Me. I want you to want Me.
This is love. I call you to love God. Do you love Me? When you love God, you will love your brothers. You are missing our love affair. I am on fire for love of you. If you stay away, then you are missing the most important affair in your life.
I want love, love in the Mass--fire when you attend, love in Jesus in the Eucharist. I am God and I, God, come and dwell in your breast in Communion. These are the most golden moments of your life. I am God. You have Me in your body. This is when you need to be with Me. I love you so much! Come and receive Me daily. No one knows the gift of the Mass and Holy Communion. Nothing is more important than Jesus, the Son of God, in your breast. You are missing the most important event in your life. I, Jesus, come into your body! How is your body? Is it pure? Is your tongue clean for Me to enter there?
Oh, sweet ones, you hold all you need. You are running down senseless roads. You are holding on to things that will vanish in an instant. I am all that matters. The greatest gift you can give to this world is to enkindle a deep love affair with Me. When I possess your soul, My love is emitted from your very being and that love is a life that cannot be contained.
Come to Me and love Me. You will set this dark world on fire with the love of Jesus. You will shine and all will see your light, for My light is the brightest light. Come to Me. Pray the prayer for union with Jesus all day. Oh, How I love you! Jesus.
March 10, 1994
Jesus speaks: This is surrender. I want your all. I do not want you attached to any person or any thing. I want you completely dependent on Me. Do I teach you such lessons on how attached you are to others and things? I have all the answers. If I do not tell you, you do not need to know. You want your will. My will I make known to you in front of the tabernacle. I have spoken here.
Surrender is doing the will of God and it is not your deciding and doing your will. I want your all. I want you to do those things the way I tell you. It is not the way you want to do them. Sweet surrender, only to find I want more. Look at My position on the cross. Did I ask you to die for Me? I ask you to do My Will. I ask you to surrender. I ask for time in front of the tabernacle. I ask for love. Watch this world go up in your face. Then where are your possessions, the things you held on to? You only have limited vision. I know all things.
I am so tired. You do not give but bits and pieces. You hold on to what you want and give Me some. I want your all. I want total surrender. I showed you how to surrender when I died on the cross. I am not asking for this. I am asking for you to do My will. You are so attached to pleasing people that you do not see the whole picture. I make My ways clear here. You do not listen. You do what you think is a good thing and you do not even come to Me. I want your all. I want surrender.
Messenger: Love includes giving up what you don't want to give up. Love is saying, "Yes, Lord", even when you would rather do it your way. It is in your surrender and love of God that you teach mighty lessons to those around you. You teach by your being in love with Jesus. I love you, Jesus. I give of My bounty, not little bits and pieces I stingily let go of. Jesus, my Lord, my God, my All, how can I love You as I ought? Do I give My all, or do I say, "Oh, Lord, you can't mean that you want this," and hold on to what I want.
Do I hold on to people and don't even know it, or do I put You first, Lord, above all persons, places and things? I see how really attached I am to everything, things I do not even know I am attached to. It is easy to give lip service to surrender and tell God to possess our soul and make me selfless, but do I really mean it? This is what keeps us from increased union with Him! It is in total surrender, of living for love of Him and Him alone, that we are free. And what freedom! The bittersweetness to let go, to find freedom from all we hold on to! The things we hold on to most are what keeps us from our increased union with Him.
"Oh, not that, Lord! Oh, do I look at your crucifix and see You letting go?" You held not one thing back. Your arms open wide, nailed to the cross! Total surrender!
What does He ask of me today that I want to hold on to? Holding on to things stops my freedom. To be totally free, I must let go. I cannot hold on and let go at the same time. Freedom is obtained in letting go. See yourself with your arms tight, holding on to all you possess.
Jesus speaks: I call you to surrender. Open your arms as I did when I died on the cross. Let all your sacred worldly possessions drop around you and you will experience the joy of being free, united only to Me, of letting go and knowing that I, God, tend to your every need. To My death on the cross I loved you and I love you this way this very day. Let go and give it all to Me. I will care for you far better than you could for yourself. I am God and I love you more than you can love yourself.
Jesus is dead, hanging on the cross, arms outstretched. His feet are not even on the ground. He is hanging by nails on a piece of wood. What do we hold on to? He wants us in midair in total surrender. Oh, little ones, how you squander your possessions. How you hold on to people. How you won't let go. See Me in total surrender.
I gave My very life for you. What do you hold on to, My little ones? Little bits and pieces you give to Me and you hold tight to your lives. They will be up in smoke and all that will remain will be the things of God. Not one pair of shoes do you take with you, only your love, given to God and others.
March 13, 1994 5:45 p.m.
Messenger: I was overtaken by an intense unrest. I was compelled to go to the tabernacle. I felt such suffering, suffering that Jesus suffered so for us and that everyone is so busy about their lives. Suffering for the indifference to Him and how He loves us despite our neglect! It was awful. I felt as I had on Christmas.
Jesus speaks: I am the Lord, thy God. Thou shalt not have any gods before Me. I must be first in your life.
Messenger: If you place any woman, man, children, food, clothing or any other little things above Him, you are not doing His will.
Jesus speaks: I died for you, sweet one. I allow you to suffer. This is suffering. You are given this to know how I suffered. You I only give such little things. I suffered, sweet one. I suffered, bloodied, bruised and beaten. Blood rolled down My cheeks. My head was pierced with sharp thorns. They spat on Me. They whipped Me. They beat Me on My head, My precious head. They hit Me on My thorns and the pain was so intense--the piercing thorns! I was slapped hard by these senseless ones. Oh, such evil in the hearts of those who beat Me, the Son of God!
My whole Body ached from head to toe. I suffered so, My child. You will never know how I suffered for love of you. I am God and I loved all My precious ones to My death--and they ignore Me!
Oh, how I suffer from this wounded heart. They will never know what love I have to give them. They will never know how I, God, love them. They are so busy with their worldly lives!
You must tell them how I wait for them. I wait. I want them to come and I will give them such love! Tell them, Rita, tell them! Your discontent is from what emotions I give you and you keep them inside. I want all to know Me and My love. I am crying out to you, little one. Tell them, tell them. Do not waste any time. I am crying out for you to spread this message. I want you to tell all of My love and how I am waiting. Emotion! Emotion! I am crying out to you in your heart!
I long for their love. I died for them. How do I make them know if you, to whom I speak, hold back? I want you to get the messages out, child.
I loved all My beloved ones to My death. I love you this way this day. I am Jesus. I am begging you to not hold back this emotion.
Oh, child, My beloved ones are blind and are going down the road that leads to nowhere. You must preach My message. You must distribute My letters. You must tell all how I wait here!
Go to My faithful ones. Spread the messages at the Center. Keep them in your car. You will be called on in an instant and I will speak My message to My beloved ones through you.
Ready yourself for a big boom. No one is listening. I am crying out to you. Prepare your brothers. They are in darkness. Their souls are dying inside of them. Some come to Me with such indifference in Communion.
I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am on fire for love of them. I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. I call you to this state of urgency. Move your friends by this urgent letter. There is no more time to waste. I call you all here to deliver this message personally to you. I am Jesus. I am begging each of you to spread My message. Tell them of My ardent love. In each moment you waste, souls will be lost.
I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am your God. I am calling to you. Will you listen or will you be numb to My pleading? I yearn for your love. Come and sit with Me every day. Sit in front of My tabernacle so I can give you what you need. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus.
I am Jesus, the Son of God. I cry out to you to preach My love. Spread these messages. Tell all you meet that I, Jesus, am alone. I am in your midst and I love you this very day. I wait for you in the tabernacle. Come and be with Me every day. This is all that you need. I give you everything. All will work when you come to Me to get your supplies.
Come to Mass and Communion daily. I wait for you to come and be in union with Me. I want to be so close to you. I love you all and I am asking you each to busy yourself about your love affair with Me. Make Me first in your life. Give Me all you are. Pray My Prayer for Union all through the day.
It is your union with Me that will change this world. You will light the lights of the souls in darkness. They will see the might of God in your soul. Energy will be emitted from your very being. You will be as you are, My most important workers, just in your being, if you surrender and be about our love affair!
It's so simple. Come to Me, be united in Communion, pray with Me in silence after Communion, pray to the Holy Spirit for all of His gifts. Pray, lay hands on each other for strength. I am Jesus. I am alive. I will live in you in such a way that you will do such wonders, just in your being more in love with Me.
I love you all dearly. Open yourselves. Be selfless and let Me possess your soul! I love you. Jesus

Message From Our Blessed Mother
Mary speaks: You hold letters that tell of the intimate, longing love of my Son for His people. Publish these letters so my children will be drawn closer to the Sacred Heart. He waits for their love. He is present and waiting. They will not know if you hold off any longer. Time is short. My children will not heal without the love of Jesus. The world is sick and you contain the medicine. All need to turn their minds and hearts back to my Son. These messages need to be published--now. I am Mary, your mother, and I love you.
Thank you for responding to my call.
March 22, 1994
Messenger: I am filled with great sadness for the souls that are so blind as not to know Jesus and His beautiful love. I want to tell every soul of His ardent, on-fire love of them and how He waits with all the intense, immense love their starving souls crave.
I am only one person. If people read His letters, they would know how intently He loves them and waits to give them all they need. They are suffering. They are sick because they are missing His love. He has it all to give them when they come to Communion and sit in front of the tabernacle.
Jesus speaks: What is missing, My sweet one, is the love, the emotion. How I truly love them! You need to tell every person you speak to how I love them. That is what their starving souls crave. Stronger than any appetite is the craving for My love. You must tell them I love them. I, Jesus Christ, am in the tabernacle. I, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, am in the tabernacle. I, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, wait for My beloved ones to come to Me. They are suffering. They are in such distress. They are so blind. They walk around in circles and bump their heads. They follow paths at top speed that lead nowhere and I, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who died on the cross with the greatest love for them, sit alone. I have all they need. Their souls are starving.
You contain the mighty medicine to turn their hearts back to Me. I am Jesus Christ. I am God. I beg you to preach how I am here in your midst this very day and how I love each person so intently. Your sorrow, child, is from knowing how I love them and watching them in their blindness.
My sorrow is so intense. My heart is bleeding to give this message to My dear ones. My plea is urgent. Every moment wasted is hurting their souls. They need to know I am truly present in Communion and in the tabernacle. Out of great and ardent love, I, God, became a man and died on the cross. I am in your midst this very day and I am being ignored.
Even My faithful do not realize My intense, personal love. They think I am a God far off in the distance that they talk about!
I do not call you to a conversation about God. I call you to love! Love is action from your heart. Love is burning. Love is on fire. Love is personal. Love of God, not motions! Oh, such indifference in My church when they say in their monotone voice, "Oh, the love of God." This is the love that led Me to be born a mere human and die a brutal, anguishing death! I died for you for the love I have for you! I wait for you a prisoner in the tabernacle out of greatest love for you and you do not even know how personal I am!
I am Jesus, the same Jesus who died for you and I am there in Communion and in the tabernacle, and I am being ignored, treated with such irreverence.
Oh, please, preach about My love for My sick ones! You contain the key, the key to open their hearts and heal their aching souls. It is the on-fire, ardent love I have for each and every person.
I am God and I am speaking to My loved ones. You hold the medicine they need to make them better. Think how you are when you are sick and need medicine. They are hurting far worse than any flu could make them hurt. They are in pain, deep in their hearts. Their hearts have turned ice cold and their souls are on the way to death. One pebble in a pond creates such a ripple. People preach the gospel in their being. Those who are in love with Me and come to the Center will change the cold hearts of this world.
Set their hearts on fire with My intimate love. Pray in the prayer service for their union with Jesus. Pray over each person that they grow in their relationship with Me. Pray that they grow close in love with Me. Pray over them to love Me. This is your answer, the personal on-fire love of Jesus. This is the power. I am God. I have all the power. When I possess their souls and permeate their being, they will walk in the love of Jesus. They will preach My gospel in their very being. What a powerhouse, the love of God emitted from their very being!
The love of God cannot be contained. It is a mighty force. It is the source by which this sick world is saved. Enkindle in each heart that comes to you the love of Jesus.
I, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, am alive. I, Jesus Christ, the same Jesus who died on the cross, am in your midst this day. My love is the same as the day I died for you. Preach this message and watch the suffering souls heal. I am in Communion. I, Jesus, come into your body. This is the greatest healing service for any man. I, Jesus, wait for you in the tabernacle. I am alive. I am a personal God. I am as close as your breath. I am with you, My child. Come and sit with Me. I have all the power. Pray over people to enkindle a love of Jesus in their hearts. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus. Pray aloud, together. What power!

At Priests' Residence Chapel After Mass
Jesus speaks: That is the point. I am not going to ask you to let go of something that you don't care about! I want you to surrender that which is very dear to you. "Oh, but," you say, "Lord, I like that," and I say, yes, I know. Do you choose Me above that? I want that which you want to hold on to. That is what keeps you from union with Me. To love Me, you must die to yourself.
You let go of bits and pieces you are willing to give up. This is not love. You decide, "I don't want this very much, Lord, so I give it to you." I want that which you will not let go of. The more closed your arms are, holding on to something, the less free you are. Total freedom is total surrender to Me. Are you willing to let go of that which I ask this day?
Your surrender is similar to how you develop trust. You trust a step at a time. You grow in your trust of Me by trusting, one step at a time. You grow in union with Me by surrendering a step at a time. Today I ask you for that which is most dear to you, only to find out tomorrow you were attached to something else. This is love--to lay down your life for Me. Would you give to Me that which you hold on to? What I am asking will take a little sacrifice, but you hold on to it because you love it.
To love Me is to put Me first. It may seem little to you, but you love it so much you don't want to let go. This is keeping you from union with Me today. I ask you today for this little part of yourself. You say, "Oh, Lord, but I really want that." I know you do. That is what is keeping you from being free to love Me.
Love gives. I gave you My life for greatest love of you. I held back not one drop of blood, one beat of My heart. I gave you everything. I stretched My arms wide. I hung in midair. I had nothing I held on to. I showed you the way to surrender and love. I am not asking for everything. I am asking you to climb one step today. The Way of the Cross was hard. The way to Me is for you to take that step today. I loved you to My death. I showed you the way. My body hung, My Blood was spent, My heart beat no more--and I did this for love of you!
I did the will of The Father to die for You! He loved you so much He sent His only Son. My mother suffered so in agony to watch her precious child die. There was no holding back. In total surrender, I died for love of You!
What do you hold on to? How can you love Me more? I love you with the most ardent on-fire love, unconditionally. I loved you this way and I love you this way this day.
Our love affair waits. You keep our love affair from growing by what you hold on to that is worldly, by what the self demands. Union with Me is accomplished by how you render yourself selfless.
Love gives. I showed you the way. I gave My life for you. If you want to love Me, surrender yourself. Give up this day that which I ask you. I want that which is precious to you. When you give such a gift is when our love will grow. Our love affair depends on you.
March 22, 1994
Messenger: I did not understand the ache in My heart or in Jesus' heart. I begged Him to give me a sign so that I could understand. He has been teaching Me that which I experienced but did not understand. I have been experiencing such sorrow and crying when I look at the world and how blind it is. He has all that men's hearts crave. He has all that will heal the hurting souls suffering from their own blindness to God and His ways. The world is operating and suffering. Their hearts are turned to stone. Their eyes have a hollow gaze. They roam the barren desert for water but they do not find any.
Nothing will satisfy the craving soul but the love of God. Nothing we search after is of any account if it is not rooted in God. He and He alone satisfies our soul.
The immensity of the sorrow I feel that people do not know of this ardent love of God! We are the soldiers in this cold world. He calls out to us and begs us to answer His cry. Put Him first. When you live only for the love of God, you will quit looking for your own self-gratification.
Jesus speaks: To seek the self is not to do My will. I need you to do My work. I need you to preach to this world about My love. I need you to have an on-fire love relationship with Me, so My love is emitted from your very being.
I am God. To be in union with Me is to have power and might in your soul. My power, My might, My light I want to give to the hurting world. I can only give that which the world needs when you come, selfless, and let Me work in you. I want to operate from your very soul to minister to this hurting world. Will you answer My call?
I ask you to have an intimate, loving union with Me. That is all you need do. I will tend to all details in your life. I am God. I have all the power. You are so blind.
Surrender. Sit on a chair and wait. Oh, wait for the Lord. I give you all you need, but you must come, you must come and love Me. You must sit with Me after Communion and in front of the tabernacle. I can do, in one instant, what you cannot do ever! You are senseless and full of yourselves. Listen to Me. I am God and I know all things. You come and I minister to you directly. How I love you, but you keep us at arm's length by your foolish attachments. I am here. Will you come and minister to My sick ones?
March 23, 1994 4:45 a.m.
Jesus speaks: My dear sweet one, I am ever present in the silence. You did as you were told. Everything that you experience is being allowed by Me. You must accept this suffering. I allowed it. It is in acceptance of all things that you grow in your relationship with Me. You do not know how I work. You do not ask questions. You do not get answers. You develop faith and trust in Me. I give you only as you need.
Faith is the answer. It is in your trials that you are given the greatest messages. Times will be tough. What must I do to shake those in their comfort? I am God and I speak here. I tell you all you need to know. I have all the power. I do not do things the way you want. I teach My lessons in your trials.
I am Jesus. I want the people to listen to Me now. I am not writing all these lessons to be ignored. Harken, for I am He Who has all the power. Do you believe I am God? Do you believe I have spoken here? Then harken to the tone of My voice. I want to be obeyed. I have given you letters for My beloved ones. I want them to know of My ardent love. I want all to know. I am a personal God. I want to light the fires of My beloved ones with the fire of My love. I ask you to comply with My wishes here.
I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I love each child intently. You will never know to what extent I would go to save a soul. I gave My life for each and every child. I, God, was born a mere human and died a brutal death for love of each person. I died for each soul. This is the mighty medicine to turn men's minds and hearts back to Me. I am God. I am speaking. Do you hear My words spoken here or do you not believe Me?
I will come! I will rock them off their rockers. In one instant I can destroy the earth! I can take your breath away. I came not to destroy but to save. I, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to earth out of a heart filled with the fire of My love. I am the same Jesus this very day. I speak in these messages. I want you to hear and heed My cries to help Me preach My love to every soul.
Preach not a monotone love of God, not a motionless love of God, but the love of God as I deliver it to My messenger! Preach love of God with the same intensity and urgency as I give to you. I want My people to know how I care for them.
You have the mighty medicine. The world is sick. You hold the medicine to turn men's minds and hearts back to an ardent on-fire love of Jesus.
I am speaking here. Man does not know what I speak or there would be no reason for Me to speak. Do you believe My might? Do you believe I have all the power? I send out an urgent plea to harken to My cry. I never leave your side. You, who toil so for love of Me, I am ever watching you and protecting you. In all your trials, you are strengthened. I teach the mighty lessons of God in all your adversities. I give to you as you need. It is your faith and love of Me that will sustain you. Faith is faith.
I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I have spoken in all these letters. Do you hear My cry to listen? I will rock this world with My might. You hold the medicine. I want You to preach the ardent on-fire love of Jesus Christ. I want you to read My letters and heed every word here.
I am Jesus, the Son of God. I have chosen you to do this work. I have chosen this Center to do this renewal. I am asking you to hear My cries, to give My love to My beloved ones! I come to you. I ask you, for I am God. I am Who am and I am asking you to help Me!
Read and reread every letter. I am talking to you. God talks to you here. I have all the power. I have all the might. I come to give My love. I am in your midst. I am God. I have all the power. I come to fill My beloved ones with My love. They are suffering. They are sick. They need their medicine.
Do you listen here? Do you believe I speak to you? What must I do to tell you? I am God. I write to you in these letters. I have all the power. I want all to know of My ardent on-fire love. Preach love with emotion about My love, the same love today. Will you listen? Will you harken to My pleading to step out and take both feet off the ground and let go. Surrender your lives to Me. I am He Who sustains you. I will operate through you when I possess your soul.
I have all the might. What I do is a success. I am God and I speak here. When You act, you get the actions of a mere human. When I act, I am the Son of God. I act and I receive results that are always successful.
This is My plan, to light the city and set men's hearts on fire with My ardent love. Will you comply? I give you an urgent request. I am Jesus, Son of God. I ask you to read and reread every letter. What do I do to increase your faith and tell you I am talking here? I do things the way God does them. I do not act the way you want.
I come to you. I plead, I beg, I am ignored. I am God and I have all the power. I am crying for the lost souls that need these messages. My heart bleeds for their suffering. They suffer, and this disease is worse than any flu. Babies are being murdered. Souls are dying and going to damnation because they do not know the love of Jesus!
I am God. I will sustain you. You will suffer, but I am always by your side. Do you believe I am talking to you? When will you listen? Read your past messages. I have begged and pleaded with you. Will you read My past messages? Will you comply with what I ask of you? I have chosen you to do this work. I am God. I have all the power. Will you preach the ardent, on-fire love of Jesus? Will you surrender and be taught by Me?
Listen and be taught. I am by your side. Will you listen to My letters? Will you listen to My messenger? I give you all you need!
I am God. I do things in My way. I send an urgent plea to you to listen to Me. I am God and I am speaking to you. I am asking you to read and listen to every message. Will you respond to My crying out to you?
I love you so intently. I am God and I have all the power.
I love you. Jesus.
March 25, 1994
Messenger: When I relinquish all that is so dear, that is when I love Him more. I will go to the end of the limb, I will jump and let Him catch me. He wants us to let go. I want to hold on to security in this world. Oh, no, He says, I want your all. You do not go to this world. You let it all go. You hold on to nothing. You walk to the end of the cliff and jump. Then watch the miracles happen.
Jesus speaks: I am asking you to jump into My arms. I am God and I will catch you. I am all you have that is solid to hold on to, yet you see Me not. You must have faith that I, God, can do in one second what the world never will do. I will light My city with the love of My Sacred Heart. Your people will flock to you for their food. You will feed the starved soul with the on-fire love of Jesus Christ. You will light the wicks of My beloved ones and they will shine in the dark world.
Nothing less than total surrender will put you in My arms. I only catch you when you let go. If you hold on, then I have no reason to catch you. You are already hanging and dangling from a shaky limb. Why try to do it yourself when total surrender drops you into the hands of God?
I have all the power. I am God. I am Jesus Christ. It was through My surrender on the cross that I saved the world. Will you surrender? That which you hold on to is not secure. You only hold on to it out of fear. The fear is worse than any surrendering you do. I am God. I give you freedom. Let go. Live by My direction. I, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, write to you. Listen. I am God. I have all the power and all the answers. I love you.
Message given Sunday, February 5, 1995
Messenger: Time is so short. He wants to be obeyed. Marys messages during the rosary are so important. My frustration is that they are being overlooked. I saw her head moving last night. She was illuminated for over one and one-half hours. Her face also had movement. At the end of the Seven Sorrows we blew out the candles and Jesus picture illuminated as those lights that glow in the dark. Especially around His Heart, the ends of the picture and His head.
He moved His mouth. He wanted the litany said.
Jesus speaks: My children of this world do not listen to Me. I come, Mary comes, people are too busy with their lives. I, in My might, will rock this earth. I tell you, I want these messages published. You think your world needs what you are doing? Your world needs these meditations on My life and that of My Mothers. Mens hearts will turn to the love of God through these meditations.
I will rock this earth. You tarry too much. I want the Blue Books published and circulated. I have spoken, I have spoken, I have begged, I have pleaded. I can in a moment take your breath from you. I have asked and pleaded. You worry for details. You do things your own way. I want the Blue Book published and given away. You do not listen because you do your own will.
I am Jesus Christ, I am God. I speak to you. You have time for other things and not for My messages. I am talking to you. I am calling out. I have called, I have called, I have knocked down the walls -- you do not comprehend that I am talking to you here. You do not listen. You do not have time to read these messages. I want this work accomplished. I will see that My work is accomplished. These messages need to be published. I am calling out an urgent alert. I will rock this earth and you will know My might. You will know I speak here. You, in your busy lives, play your games with Me. I am telling you that My patience is wearing thin. To press on My messenger is not opening your hearts. I am dealing with you. These are My messages to you. Ignore Me and you will suffer. How do I tell you -- you ignore My letters! You do not have time to read them. You do not pay heed to the rosary messages. These messages are so important to My Church.
Play your games, souls will be lost. You hold the mighty medicine to turn souls to My burning love. You take this so lightly. I can rock this earth. For one month before the earthquake I told you that the earth would crack -- you do not listen. I want the January 19th message published separately.
I am Jesus Christ. I have spoken. I am ignored. Mary is appearing as Our Lady of Light each day and I am giving you messages for this world. I beg you to take Me seriously. Your delays are unnecessary. You will suffer. You are suffering at the Center now for not publishing the Third Blue Book that I started in March, 1994. If these messages do not circulate, your workers will remain divided until they do -- you ignored My words. Your problem would be resolved if you read these letters. All the answers are in these letters. I will rock this earth. Since the middle of December I have been pressing down in My message -- no one pays Me heed.
If you do not read the letters, how do I get your attention? You are too busy. I want these letters circulated, I want the letters published, I want the letters read. I will rock this earth. I do not get any response from you. What do I do to shake you? I can knock down the walls, I can rock the earth. I ask you gently to take Me seriously. I am Jesus. My cry is for the souls that are hungry for My love. I am pouring out My love to them and you are holding up My messages, My Mothers meditations -- you have put these letters off. Satan is doing everything to stop their publication. These are the letters that will turn mens hearts to the power of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Christ.
I have been patient. I have waited. The big boom was March 22, 1994 -- for one month I begged, I pleaded, I told you I would rock the earth. I can remove your blocks. I want these letters to be published and circulated. I am God. I am speaking here. I am Jesus. I am speaking here. My Mother is speaking here. We are being ignored and put off. Your city will shine with the light of My love when you circulate these letters.
The power is in the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. I beg you to listen to Me. I am God. I want these messages heeded. I want them supported. I want them to circulate and be published. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I beg you to listen to Me. I want My messenger to speak. I am using her as a tool to give My message to this world. I want this message out. I will get it out. It is My message for the world. I ask gently, you delay, you worry for details, you do not obey. Time is so short. People need these messages. The power is in prayer. The power of prayer, fixed to the burning Heart of Jesus, is so powerful. I want union with souls. You will not let go and come to My tabernacle and sit after Communion. You cannot do this job without My power. I have spoken. You need to pray fervently to the Holy Spirit. I beg you to listen. I beg, I beg, I beg. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. These are My messages of love for this world!
Message given February 12, 1995
Messenger: These messages are not my messages. They are His love letters to this world. We are all called here to help Him to spread them. He is in this world now. He is with me at Frischs. God is in our midst this day. We are being called to go out to the world and spread the Good News. Jesus came to this earth, born a baby of the Virgin Mary. Jesus died. He rose on the third day and He will come again!
Jesus and Mary are sending us into the world to spread the love of Their two Hearts. He is the same as during the Rosary, at a meeting with the three priests, as He was in Debrovnik, as He was at St. Phillips Church, as He was in the pew in Steubenville, Ohio, as He was when He was with me in the parking lot at St. Vincent Ferrer Church. My heart is burning at His presence. He is here in the ordinary occurrences of life, present in this world. He cries out for His message to be spread to this world. His people are in the world. He wants us to carry the message to His beloved souls in this world. He loves each and every one of His precious souls. We must see with the eyes of God. Each soul He loves. He loves each so dearly! He wants to love through us. This world is in pain. We contain the mighty medicine. THESE ARE HIS MESSAGES FOR THE WORLD.
Jesus speaks: I send you into the world to give My love to the souls that are hurting. You contain the medicine for this sick world -- it is the love of My most Sacred Heart! I call you this day, will you answer My call?
My letters are My love letters. My personal love letters for this world. I gave My all for each and every precious soul. I gave My flesh and Blood for them. I came to bring life. Can you not give My love to this world? I call you to union with Me. Surrender. Let Me operate your soul. It is in your surrender and time alone with Me you will go into the world with Me to spread My love to this world. I want to be one with you. If you unite with Me, all will go according to the Fathers Plan.
I am Jesus. Oh, how I love and thank you, My beloved ones, so dearly. I press you to My Heart, so dearly. I love you!
