                Given February 1, 2012

                R. We were created by God the Father!

                    Our Goal: Doing God's Will 

                            Loving God and others

                JESUS TAUGHT THIS

                Jesus taught in His birth - Doing God's will
                Jesus taught in His death - Doing God's will
                Jesus taught this in His life! Doing God's will

                You will change everyday —
                    You do not remain the same  —

                Either you get closer to God or we go
                    further away from God,
                    but we will change every day.

                We see that the Church, the world and the Individual
                    Christian are all in the state of becoming. The
                    individual is part of a bigger picture of becoming.

State of


Excerpt from Response to God's Love by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J. - Chapter 3 - Becoming

                                                         Our incorporation into the mystery of Christ at baptism initiates us into a life that God intends to develop into full maturity. Our life in Christ as guided by the Spirit is not a static given, a life that is received in baptism and then simply clung to. It is not a life that we are merely to avoid losing through serious sin. Rather, it is our task to develop this life through a process of evolutionary growth. God has truly placed us in a situation of becoming. Our personal uniqueness is meant to gradually unfold into its full stature in Christ as we increasingly fulfill God's will in deepening faith, hope, and love.


                R. It is God's plan for growth for all creation —

Matthew 7: 21

‘It is not anyone who says to me, "Lord, Lord," who will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but the person who does the will of my Father in heaven.


                Sing: Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God

                R. Religious Orders take vows.


                Order — not disorder
                Eve did what she wanted
                The devil wants us to do our own will and
                    rebel against God's will —

                Mary and Jesus were obedient to God's will.
                Mary and Jesus perfectly conformed to the will of God

                The devil wants unpredictability —

                We are to obey God's rules.
                    Follow God's laws —
                    Follow Jesus, Follow His teaching!

                We cannot do what we want, we are to obey God,
                We are under God!!
                 The devil wants us to seek power for power sake!!

                We are under somebody - all are under God


1 Corinthians 15: 20-28

In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first-fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first-fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. But when it is said everything is subjected, this obviously cannot include the One who subjected everything to him. When everything has been subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the One who has subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.


                R. A person can go through life saying to God —
                    "Make me do it" — like a stubborn teenager, a rebellious toddler

                    God made toddlers little so parents could handle them as they learn —
                    Tell them to sit on a chair, not get ice cream when
                        they disobey, discipline is necessary to teach the little ones.

                We have a free will — If we can't force a two year old to obey —
                    how can we force a 50 year old to obey —

                God wants love, He wants us to freely choose His will in obedience —
                    Stubbornness to God is to our own detriment —


From the Priestly Newsletter Book III - 2000 Issue 3 pp. 44-47

The Father's Will for Us  - Our Source of Peace

  • Pope John Paul II instructs us: "The Church, as a reconciled and reconciling community, cannot forget that at the source of her gift and mission of reconciliation is the initiative, full of compassionate love and mercy, of that God who is love (see 1 John 4:8) and who out of love created human beings (see Wisdom 11:23-26; Genesis 1:27: Psalms 8:4-8)…He created them so that they might live in friendship with Him and in communion with one another.

"God is faithful to His eternal plan even when man, under the impulse of the evil one (see Wisdom 2:24) and carried away by his own pride, abuses the freedom given to him in order to love and generously seek what is good, and (instead) refuses to obey his Lord and Father. God is faithful even when man, instead of responding with love to God’s love, opposes Him and treats Him like a rival, deluding himself and relying on his own power, with the resulting break of relationship with the One who created him. In spite of this transgression on man’s part, God remains faithful in love.

"It is certainly true that the story of the Garden of Eden makes us think about the tragic consequences of rejecting the Father, which becomes evident in man’s inner disorder and in the breakdown of harmony between man and woman, brother and brother (see Genesis 3:12 ff; 4:1-16). Also significant is the Gospel parable of the two brothers (the parable of the ‘prodigal son’; see Luke 15:11-32) who, in different ways, distance themselves from their father and cause a rift between them. Refusal of God’s fatherly love and of His loving gifts is always at the root of humanity’s divisions.

"But we know that God…like the father in the parable (of the prodigal son), does not close His heart to any of His children. He waits for them, looks for them, goes to meet them at the place where the refusal of communion imprisons them in isolation and division. He calls them to gather about His table in the joy of the feast of forgiveness and reconciliation.

"This initiative on God’s part is made concrete and manifest in the redemptive act of Christ, which radiates through the world by means of the ministry of the Church." 13

13. Pope John Paul II, as in Celebrate 2000!, Servant Publications, pp. 140-141.



                R. Love is the motivation to live as God wants us to live.               

                Love is a choice

                We are motivated to follow Jesus — we love Him —

                    Goal: Doing God's Will 

                     Attitude: in love

                If we want Success we must have a goal.
                If we want Success we must have a positive attitude.







                R. The devil wants souls for hell
                The devil wants the soul to operate under him —
                The devil tempts - wants person to be
                        1) seeking power for power sake
                        2) angry and punishing
                        3) envious
                        4) jealous
                        5) greedy
                        6) lustful
                        7) prideful
                        8) slothful

                Jesus called these retreats at His Centers He gave us —
                    Mary appeared in Clearwater
                    Jesus exposed in the Eucharist in China

                Jesus gives us the Mighty Medicine for the world —

                Jesus gives us the priests and the Church —

                The Church - the fountain of His life



Mary's Message
from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary:  I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

end of Mary's Message


                R. We can say to God — (not God's will)

                    "I want what I want - as I want it" —
                        "when I want it — how I want it" —
                        "my schedule" —
                    "No one will tell Me what to do" —

                Our lives here are to prepare us for heaven —
                    to live obedient to God's Plan — 


                R. Not doing God's will on earth is
                    like going to take a test
                    and failing on purpose.

                Not doing God's will is an F

                We have a free will to choose God's will —
                    to be obedient to God's will

                Adam and Eve were a rival to God's will —

  Perfection Jesus - the New Adam
Mary - the New Eve
perfectly conformed to the
will of God in love



                The devil wants you to say its not your
                    fault when you sin —
                    We are to be responsible to do God's will.

                The devil wants a person who hurts themselves
                    and others to lie about the
                    error and fight — they act like
                    they never did anything wrong —

                Our job here is to serve God —
                    (1) Not get 'browny-points' to prove we are always right - this is untrue —
                    (2) Trying to get just rules out by force so the new rules are rules the devil wants in —
                        i.e. Killing babies in the womb is okay —
                        i.e. Getting a divorce without special
                            considerations as the Church says —

                The devil wants to get rid of rules
                The devil wants to get rid of just laws —

                Religious orders have rules —

                Relativism (wrong)

                    "What is truth for you, might not be truth for me."   (wrong)

                    The fullness of life is on the other side of death's door —
                        if we are going to heaven —

                Choice — free will — do God's will.

                Have faith —

                Making the reality what God wants —

                Don't do unpredictable things, God doesn't want that hurt others —

                Be accountable for your actions

                Discipline your will —

                Discern the spirits —

                Doing what the Holy Spirit wants, not what the evil spirit tempts you to do.

                Successful actions to building God's Kingdom —

                    1) Doing God's will in love!!

                    2) Power within —
                        Being so one with the Trinity

                Abundance of Christ's Life in us — ever increasing —

                Increase in faith, hope, love and
                    the other virtues —

                Not developing vices —
                    seeking dominance and control

                We need time alone with God —
                    We need to develop our relationship with God.
                        (1) interior life —
                        (2) must have positive time alone with God

                The Body can heal itself —

                We have lots of brain cells,
                    but we can't abuse
                    ourselves on a regular
                    basis — We are to take care
                    of ourselves.

                Addictions a person can just do all kinds of things to keep acting in the addiction —

                They don't want to change —
                They can be enslaved to the addiction —

                People can be addicted to anger, misery, abuse, etc.
                    They can operate for affections because they don't see themselves as God sees them —
                        talking in destructive self-talk all day and
                        then waiting to blame their hatred and anger on anyone who
                            they think crosses them               

                Our brain records the experiences we have had —

                Old experiences are stored in our brains —
                    even what we experience on T.V.

                We can let ourselves be run by our feelings —
                We can let ourselves be run by our addictions —
                We can lie to ourselves about the truth
                    about our lives,
                    how we have hurt others
                    and others have hurt us
                    and we are not perfect
                    and we need to tell the truth about situations —

                Be sorry before God for those we hurt —
                    tell the truth to ourselves about our sins
                    Ask for forgiveness from God —
                    Go to confession

                See our life —
                We will stand before God and we will see our life before us —

                We are to recognize our parents and others aren't perfect no matter
                    how they think they were and love them, forgive them and move out
                    of old wounds praying for them —

                We want others to pray for us for our
                    spiritual life and mistakes we made —

                Admit addictive behavior —
                    Unpredictability is not what God wants —
                        when people aren't doing God's will and sinning —
                        and then do things to get attention and control,
                        when they are bored, because they aren't doing God's will —
                    So they can do unpredictable things —

                    Come clean - do God's will - quit sinning — don't block God's plan!! —

                We are at this place in Shepherds of Christ
                    At the top of the mountain
                    Satan wants people operating for him,
                        to stop what God is allowing us to accomplish —

                Satan operates in one's own house if he can —

                Satan wants to get authority to block what God wants —

                Satan wants to establish the wrong laws —
                    and put in corrupted laws opposed to God,
                    from willful men rebelling against God —

                God chooses us and gives us
                    a free will to obey
                    in our vocation —

                With Absalom, David's son
                    he wanted to take over
                    David's Kingship for his
                    own power —

                David didn't want to see Jerusalem hurt
                    and what he built in his life —
                    he didn't want Jerusalem burned in 3 days —
                    all he had done destroyed because of Absalom's greed!!

                Absalom only knew his greed —
                    his anger — his seeking
                    dominance for dominance sake —
                    He wanted it for his own vain glory

                Absalom operated for the devil —

                He was greedy —

                David was called by God —
                David was anointed by God —
                David was made King, anointed by Samuel, the prophet, for God.

                The devil uses force and the fight,
                    he wants to fight the just man —

                Jesus is meek and humble of heart —

                The man wanting to move for the devil
                    can use passive-aggressive behavior —
                    the devil has no bounds — he wants souls for hell -
                    so he tempts a man to use passive-aggressive behavior many times.

                In passive-aggressive behavior the devil tries to
                    works in the man in secret — keeps things hidden —
                    sly - so the devil temps the man to
                    'stab in the back' (not literally) with his betraying behavior.

                Aggressive behavior by the devil tempting
                    someone  and 'stab him in the front'
                    (betrayal, not literally stab the 'man'.)

                Satan uses people as agents who give their
                    power to satan giving into the deadly sins.

                Satan wants the cycle of abuse to provoke,
                    attack and win for satan —

                Rebelling and fighting God is foolish —
                Rebelling and fighting the order, God's
                    authority, God's laws is foolish —
                    God has all the power —

                Satan uses men so they become enslaved to him —

                St. Ignatius says from the Spiritual Exercises

"First they are to tempt them to covet riches (as Satan himself is accustomed to do in most cases) that they may the more easily attain the empty honors of this world, and then come to overweening pride.

   The first step, then, will be riches, the second honor, the third pride. From these three steps the evil one leads to all other vices."


                R. St. Ignatius says there are
                    2 Camps —

                Men can promote Jesus' Kingdom
                or men can promote satan's kingdom.

                Satan can press down on a man and the man can give in to satan,
                    develop vices and block God's will —

                    Then the person has more and more distorted vision from giving into vices
                        and as he becomes more satan's agent —
                        his vision becomes even more distorted —

                Satan prowls this earth looking for someone to devour —
                    one can says —
                    "I won't serve God" and can
                        selfishly and foolishly
                        use his free will to serve satan —

                Like Adam and Eve

                    Cause and Effect —

                We must discipline our thoughts —
                    put positive thoughts in our minds -
                    do not put negative thoughts in our minds.

                We can give into violence —
                    creating that reality in
                    in our lives —

                Or we can try to be like Jesus —

                The more one is angry inside and violent —
                    the more they can have distorted vision.


                From Blue Book 7

                June 24, 1995

                R. Every time Jesus is in the tabernacle in this
                    big chapel, I get experiences and gifts.
                    I know His presence. I love Jesus so much,
                    I love to go before the tabernacle in the big chapel.

                It is as if my heart is burning up for
                    love of Him. I just feel such union to God.
                    I do not want to leave.
                    Through Him, with Him, in Him, I
                    remain united to Him through the heart of Mary.

                    A soul can operate from darkness and be unhappy.
                The devil wants to rule dark hearts —

                    A soul can be elevated to such heights,
                being penetrated deeply from His grace and
                act in the brightest light.

                The way I feel this day is a great gift, given,
                    from Him, I am so one in this ecstatic
                    experience. I have been dry as the Feast
                    of the Sacred Heart approached. All the
                    days of dryness were in preparation
                    for this great grace.

                Lord You take me from such heights and
                    plunge me into sufferings, my whole
                    being is sensitive to Your grace.
                    I live for moments when you touch me
                    deeply, I recount these memories and cry
                    from Your goodness and love. I am immersed
                    in You and Mary's heart, the heart of love,
                    pierced and wounded.

                To have a mystical experience and then for it to
                    end is suffering sometimes, but the joy to be
                    forever more deeply one with you is indeed a great joy.
                    Our lives a mixture of sufferings and joy,
                    of rising to such heights when I am
                    penetrated by Your grace, when you take me
                    under the veil and that reality is
                    more real than anything I experience

                It is hard to have a mystical revelation and be
                    touched so deeply, then have it end or be dry as
                    I was the days before the Feast of the Sacred Heart.
                    But in these experiences He touches me permanently.
                    I know so much of what is really real, but
                    to know so much is to realize how little
                    I really know. God is the ultimate mystery.

                This is so hard to explain, maybe Fr. Carter can
                    explain it better. It is ineffable. I am unable to
                    express here what I am experiencing, this
                    alone is frustrating because it is so real
                    to me and I want to tell the world with
                    shouts and jubilation. My soul sings with
                    the love of God, 'sing' is a weak word.
                    I am immersed in His deep love. I love
                    Him so much, I cannot express it in words
                    it is in my being.

                After Mass Feast of the Sacred Heart

                Greatest Mass ever, I just want to tell Him my
                    great love for Him. So deep within,
                    I just love Him so much.

                I do not thank Him for the great gifts enough,
                    I do not praise and honor Him as I should,
                    I want to give so much to Him.

                The Mass was the greatest ever, I experienced every
                    single word of the Mass so deep in my being.
                    I so deeply knew the presence of the Almighty

                Sing: His Presence Pervades My Soul

                R. Here I am Lord, I hasten to go into this world and
                    declare Your works and Your love for all
                    men, to know You a little has
                    left me wasted, my whole being
                    declares Your goodness and to know
                    You is to go forth and share Your
                    love with all men.

                I am Your servant, Lord, I give to You
                    my whole soul, my whole heart, my
                    whole being without reserve offered to
                    You Father united to Your precious Son
                    in the Mass. Look
                    favorably on me — I love You so much..


                June 25, 1995

                Jesus: Oh death where is thy sting, though
                you walk in the dark valley, I am
                with you and by your side.

                    Fear not for I am your rear guard
                and your fore guard, I am Jesus your
                beloved Savior.

                    I lift you high and give to you the great
                mysteries contained in My Heart.
                I give you such insights into My life.

                    I am present, I am here, I am
                with you, be not afraid for I harken
                to help you and lead you on your way.

                    You are My chosen ones, I listen to
                the voice of your supplication.

                    You feel that you have been
                abandoned by Me. You have not been
                abandoned, I am preparing a way for
                you to spread My words to all.

                    Fear of others causing confusion and
                doubt is useless. Surrender to the
                plan as it unfolds before you. I am
                Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the Flock
                attentive to all your needs.

                I go before you and prepare the way. Harken
                to Me and hear the sound of My voice.
                I am Jesus your Savior attentive
                to every detail. Satan will try to
                divide, you work hard to ward him off.
                Do the third Blue Book, all can profit
                from these messages. I am Jesus
                your beloved, be not fearful, I go
                with you. I love you, Jesus.

The Pain - Naples, Florida

R. He spread His arms, He gave His all, Jesus, the Son of God, the greatest sacrifice, He gave Himself entirely for the good of all men. He opened His arms, He died on the cross.

His arms were covered with blood, His arms so weak and filled with pain, wounded. His arms, the pain shot up His arms and the final blow to each arm a nail through each precious hand.

All the agony He experienced, all the pain, and the crown, to each arm, a nail hammered into the hand.

All the nerves cut and severed by the nail, the pain shooting up His precious arms, the final blow given to His most precious members.

The legs that carried Him, that carried the heavy cross, the legs that were forced and cajoled, that continues to Calvary - the legs weakened, skinned, bleeding, beaten, burned, the legs that knew patience and perseverance, the legs connected to a sore foot that was rubbed and gashed and bleeding, the members of Jesus, filled with such pain and exhaustion, now is crowned with the final glory. The nail that was driven into the foot, the pain shot up this already weakened leg, covered with blood and wounds and pain, the final blow, the nerves severed by the hammered nail.

A blow to each hand, a blow to each foot, a blow to the head, a stamping that pressed down and continued in excruciating pain.

Jesus: They numbered all My bones. They gave Me vinegar and gall to drink. They gave Me a cloth to wipe My blood-covered flesh.

What did they give to Me? Love is giving, My dear ones. How many of you are wounded when you are not given things by your brothers you love?

My members were in such pain, the pain shot up My arms. My legs were so weak I could scarce move them. I was filled with pain within them.

To all who watched, they saw a man, weakened and covered with blood and wounds. They did not see the pain inside that shot up My legs and arms, the nerves inside My body that sent signals of deep pain to My central nervous system. They did not see the nerves inside sending pain signals everywhere.

The final blow being to each hand and foot, the severing of My nerves by the blunt and rusted nails.

An arm extended. A final blow. I beheld a nail pounded into My hand and the pain shot up My arms, unbearable to a human mind.

Do you know of the pain within My body? Signals sending messages of deep pain everywhere. I knew all of these sufferings in the garden. So great were the sufferings to My mind, I sweat blood.

My flesh was covered with wounds. My arms were stretched from their sockets. My body was beaten and bleeding, every inch of My body covered with deep wounds. But, My loved ones, you miss the depth of My love. My wounds were so deep, but the final wound, the pounding of the nails in My hands and feet, a severing of the nerves, an ending of the deepest pain, to experience even deeper pain, beyond your human comprehension, it was done to the Almighty God, a Divine Person, I suffered the final blow to each member.

The pounding in the hands and feet, the crown to each member, and they numbered all My bones. My nerves a network of pain running throughout My entire body.

The pain within the body, the pain recorded in My loving head, the pain sent by a network of nerves in My body, now records the final blows, the nails in the hands and feet, the pain being recorded from every thorn that pierced My skull, every gash to My body, the pain, the pain, the pain - a network of signals and pain, running through My body and the final hour, the pains recorded on the cross, arms outstretched - a surrendering to all pain. I surrendered to a body laden with pain.

You focus on your little problems, your little aches and pains. You discuss them and show the world your pin pricks and sufferings.

Do you want to know holiness and love? They gave Me vinegar mixed with gall. This was their offering. They gave Me a cross. They crowned My head with a crown of thorns.

This, My dear ones, is suffering, My beloved souls, I gave My life for and this is their return.

A severing of My nerves, the final blows to all the aches and pains recorded in My nervous system. This was one of the final blows - the rusted nails pounded into My hands.

You will feel little aches and pains in your hands and feet to remind you of this message. Your understanding of the immense pain within will deepen. What was visible to the eye on My battered body was nothing compared to the pains within. I gave My all. I gave My insides, My mind, My Heart, wounded for the love of men.

All functions in the body were stopped.

The final curtain, blood and water pouring out from My Heart, show that all functions of the body had ended.

R. All signals that carried messages of immense pain had ended, the final act of surrender for God to die to this human body and surrender His flesh.

Jesus: And end, a beginning, the water and blood flowed from My Heart, the beginning of My life in the Church, life flowing into your spirit.

R. Come give me life, abundant life. I thirst to be with Thee.

Jesus: My blood was spent. My human flesh and blood offered as the sacrifice, the sacrifice of Calvary is now made present at every Mass.

An end, a beginning, and the grace and life flow through the sacraments in the Church. My life flows to you in the Mass. Mary, the Mediatrix of all grace, stands by the side of the altar and the grace flows from the Father, through My body offered up as a sacrifice in the Holy Spirit, given through the Mothership of Mary to you in the Church.

You stand under the cross with My Mother and you receive the gift given, My Body, My Blood.

R. Man is reconciled with the Father through the Divine Person, Jesus Christ, and you receive His life poured out to you as Calvary is made present in the unbloody sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Do you feel the graces poured out to you at this sacrifice of the Son of God at every Mass? Do you feel the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and Mary, all the angels and saints, and the souls in purgatory? Do you feel united as one at the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present upon the altar through the priest? The priest who now puts on Christ and through Him the dispenser of this life given to man.

Jesus: Oh, My beloved ones, love so dearly your priest. Give him such reverence. He is the chosen instrument of God and you treat him with such ordinariness. You are so blind and so dumb in your ways.

And they numbered all My bones. Each nerve carrying a message of My love of mankind, each member in My Church carrying a special message, all united as one working in harmony according to the Father's will, each carrying a message of love to one another.

The body is many members, you are the messengers of My love. Christ is the head. The message does not flow as it should when some are cut off from the Head.

They nailed My hands and feet and My nerves were severed by the nails, such pain, undescribable in words, the severing of My nerves from the body, the severing of many members from the body of Christ.

My Body given for all on the cross, the network of nerves within carrying the messages of My love to all mankind. My body covered on the outside with blood and wounded, the pain recorded within.

Your Church, covered with blood on the outside, the slaughter of innocent babies, the homosexuality, the sins of the flesh, the members that have severed themselves from the source by their sins, but the pain is carried in the nerves inside. The blood of the Lamb shed for each and every soul, the real pain carried within. The life is weakened in your Church because the love of God is so weak in many members. The messages of love are not being transmitted as they should be. Your body shows the wounds, but your pain within is the root of the problems. The pain is from the messages of love that are not being transmitted.

Unless you seek to fill your priests and sisters with the fire of God's love, fill their hearts with burning love for God, your Church will continue to show the marks of the blood shed without. I give to you these letters as a mighty medicine for this world, directed to make men's hearts burn with love of God and love of one another. The rosaries are meditations and messages given from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

These messages will make men's hearts burn with fire for love of God.

You have ignored the importance of these letters.

I send to you the mighty medicine to heal a hurting world.

My priests and religious need these messages. The love of God will be transmitted to the Church from these messages when you circulate these letters.

The devil has blocked the minds of men involved in these messages because of their importance to the world and the Church.

I am speaking to you Fr. Carter to help to get these messages published and circulated as soon as possible. I give to you a mighty medicine for a sick world.

Read St. Thomas Aquinas about the medicine for the sick Church.

You know what these messages have done for you. I am Jesus. I give to you the mighty medicine for a sick world, for a sick Church, rosaries and letters from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Your Church shows the wounds of bloodshed, abortion, homosexuality, sins of the flesh, murder of little children's minds with sex education in Catholic schools and you hold back the gifts of God's love I am giving to the Church and this world.

My arms were weak and wounded but the final blow as the nail put in My hand. It severed the nerves.

The final blow is the bloodshed in the Church, the slaughtering of children's minds in Catholic schools. My children are pure and innocent. They are not being taught messages of God's love, they are being taught messages of sick sex and coldness.

Men's hearts have turned cold. They have been severed from the life of the body. The body is decaying from within. Only with the love of God enkindled in men's hearts will this bloodshed stop.

I beg you to publish and circulate these messages in the Church. I am Jesus. I am giving you the mighty medicine for the world. Your body wears the marks of the bloodshed, only with messages of My on-fire love will it stop.

Mary leads you to Jesus. Never is she the end. The Father has a plan. Mary's messages have led men and will lead men to Jesus. Satan has tried to stop all efforts to publish and circulate these messages. I am the Almighty God. The funds will come when you circulate and publish these messages and rosaries under the Shepherds of Christ Publishing. I am working with Fr. Carter and Rita as messenger to renew the Church and the world. Each messenger has a very vital role in the Father's plan. The significance of these messages are being overlooked. You are not studying the messages as a whole and their content. There are five unpublished Blue Books and more than four Rosary Books which I and My Mother have given to this world in the last 14 months. I have also given 15 songs of My love. I am begging you to see to the recording and publishing of this music. I beg you to listen. This is the mighty medicine for the Church and the world to draw men to the burning love of Jesus. Please harken to My call. I will send you the money. You must study and read these messages. This is a fulfillment of Fatima - these messages were given to bring priests to the burning love of Jesus. I am Jesus, your beloved Savior.

Presentation in the Temple

Luke 2: 23-24

From Tell My People

The Holy Spirit

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in My likeness. He performs this marvel within Mary's Immaculate Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My own Heart. In both Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master. All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!"

Reflection: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with our Mother, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us.

The Theology of Consecration

    A. Boussard gives an extremely fine and concise sketch of the theology of consecration: "By the Incarnation, in and of itself, the Humanity of Jesus is consecrated, so that in becoming Man, Jesus is ipso facto constituted Savior. Prophet, King, Priest, and Victim of the One Sacrifice that was to save the world. He is the 'Anointed', par excellence, the 'Christ' totally belonging to God, His Humanity being that of the Word and indwelled by the Holy Spirit. When, by a free act of His human will, He accepts what He is, doing what He was sent to do, He can say that He consecrates 'Himself'. In Christ, therefore, what might be called His 'subjective' consecration is a perfect response to the 'objective' consecration produced in His Humanity through the Incarnation.

    "And what Christ does brings with it a 'consecration' for His disciples, a very special belonging to God, since He imparts to them His own life precisely by making them participate in His own consecration.

    "Through Baptism Christians also are consecrated and 'anointed' by the power of the Spirit. They share, in their measure, in the essential consecration of Christ, in His character of King, Priest, and Prophet (cf. 1 Pt 2:9; 2 Pt 1:3-4; Rv 5:9; etc.) With Christ and through Christ, they are 'ordered' to the glory of God and the salvation of the world. They do not belong to themselves. They belong to the Lord, who imparts His own life to them....

    "The vocation of those who have been baptized is to 'live' this consecration by a voluntary adherence-and one that is as perfect as possible-to what it has made of them. Living as 'children of God', they fulfill subjectively their objective consecration; like Jesus, they consecrate themselves. This is the deeper meaning of vows and baptismal promises, together with the actual way of life corresponding to them. The baptismal consecration is the fundamental one, constitutive of the Christian. All consecrations which come after it presuppose it and are rooted in it...."19

19. A. Boussard in Dictionary of Mary, Catholic Book Publishing Co., pp. 54-55.


                R. The Father sent Jesus, think of that, God in the womb of
                    the Virgin Mary. God the Father gave His Son
                    to us. He chose Mary from the beginning.

                After Jesus died on the cross, they took Jesus from the cross
                    and Mary held the body of Christ in her arms.

                Jesus In Mary - in Mary's womb, in Mary's
                    arms, presented to the Father in
                    the temple in Mary's arms, the offering
                    is made as Mary holds Him in
                    her arms — The Mass: the sacrifice of
                    Calvary sacramentally made present

                Finding in temple 3 days — Mary knows separation.
                    Mary stood beneath the cross
                    Mary held Jesus' body under the cross.

                Burial in tomb - Separation - Mary knew Separation —
                    Mary cried outside the tomb —
                    3 days - separation through His death

                Jesus ascended into heaven

Mother of Our Christ-life

Mary is the Mother of our Christ-life, this life which flows to us from the bosom of the Father, through Christ, in the Holy Spirit. Pope John Paul II beautifully links Mary’s spiritual motherhood toward us with her being Mother of Christ, Mother of the Church, and Model of the Church. “Mary is present in the Church as the Mother of Christ, and at the same time as the Mother whom Christ, in the mystery of the Redemption, gave to humanity in the person of the Apostle John. Thus, in her new motherhood in the Spirit, Mary embraces each and every one in the Church, and embraces each and every one through the Church. In this sense, Mary, Mother of the Church, is also the Church’s model. Indeed, as Paul VI hopes and asks: the Church must draw ‘from the Virgin Mother of God the most authentic form of perfect imitation of Christ.’”9

                Only two bodies in Heaven.

                R. Mary is the Mediatrix of all graces

                The incarnation goes on in us as we are
                    being formed in the spiritual womb
                    of Jesus' Mother — Her Immaculate Heart —

                Molded - Like a Mold


                Jesus said! "I laid down My life for My sheep" 


                R. I the Lord am with you, always by your side,
                    come and follow me and I will take you
                    home. Follow Me, follow Me.

                Worthy is the
                    Lamb that was slain






                R. At the Holy Spirit Center there are 15 windows in the Church.
                    The Birth of Jesus is across from the Descent of the Holy Spirit
                    on the Apostles and Mary.
                    I see the birth and descent of the Holy Spirit on the
                    Apostles as so connected. I see it and can explain
                    it so clear by the windows at the
                    center — They are across from each other.

                I see the mysteries as interlocked.

                We are to go out to the world and spread the Good News.

                2000 years later look what the Apostles did for us.

November 30, 1995


The Father communicates to us through His Son. The Holy Spirit unites with Mary in bringing forth the Son, Jesus. Divinity is united to humanity in her womb. Sin is not present in the Incarnation of Christ. Mary is sinless. She united with God.

Eve is the mother of the living. The sin is passed down from Adam and Eve. Jesus and Mary are the New Adam and the New Eve. Mary is the new Mother of the living. She is the Mother of the Church. We are being formed in the image and likeness of Jesus. She is our Mother. The Incarnation goes on in us.

By Baptism, we partake in His life, death, and Resurrection, dying to all that is not Him and rising to Him in new life. At every Mass, at the Consecration, we unite to Him, dying on the cross, as we die to our ways that are not like God. We offer ourselves to the Father. (At the Offertory, we offer ourselves with the bread and wine. If bread can be changed into His Body and wine can be changed into His Blood, we too can be changed from our selfish, ungodly ways. We are tainted with the results of original sin. We become more and more like Him through the Mass. We die to ourselves to become more like Him.)

Our Mother stands beneath the cross. We are molded more and more in His image and likeness in the Holy Spirit. She is the New Eve. "Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars." (Rv. 12:1) She is constantly forming us in her womb. She is giving birth to us, as we unite with Him in such intimacy at Communion.

I am transformed in the Holy Spirit. The more I outpour my love to the Holy Spirit, to Jesus, and to the Father, the more my insides burn.

Mary and the Holy Spirit

The late Archbishop Luis M. Martinez of Mexico strikingly speaks of the ongoing cooperation of Mary with the Holy Spirit regarding the reproduction of Jesus within us: "Christian life is the reproduction of Jesus in souls…

"Now, how will this mystical reproduction be brought about in souls? In the same way in which Jesus was brought into the world, for God gives a wonderful mark of unity to all His works. Divine acts have a wealth of variety because they are the work of omnipotence; nevertheless, a most perfect unity always shines forth from them because they are the fruit of wisdom; and this divine contrast of unity and variety stamps the works of God with sublime and unutterable beauty.

"In His miraculous birth, Jesus was the fruit of heaven and earth…The Holy Spirit conveyed the divine fruitfulness of the Father to Mary, and the virginal soil brought forth in an ineffable manner our most loving Savior, the divine Seed, as the prophets called Him…

"That is the way He is reproduced in souls. He is always the fruit of heaven and earth.

"Two artisans must concur in the work that is at once God’s masterpiece and humanity’s supreme product: the Holy Spirit and the most holy Virgin Mary. Two sanctifiers are necessary to souls, the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, for they are the only ones who can reproduce Christ.

"Undoubtedly, the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary sanctify us in different ways. The first is the Sanctifier by essence; because He is God, who is infinite sanctity; because He is the personal Love that completes, so to speak, the sanctity of God, consummating His life and His unity, and it belongs to Him to communicate to souls the mystery of that sanctity. The Virgin Mary, for her part, is the co-operator, the indispensable instrument in and by God’s design. From Mary’s maternal relation to the human body of Christ is derived her relation to His Mystical Body which is being formed through all the centuries until the end of time, when it will be lifted up to the heavens, beautiful, splendid, complete, and glorious.

"These two, then, the Holy Spirit and Mary, are the indispensable artificers of Jesus, the indispensable sanctifiers of souls. Any saint in heaven can co-operate in the sanctification of a soul, but his co-operation is not necessary, not profound, not constant: while the co-operation of these two artisans of Jesus of whom we have just been speaking is so necessary that without it souls are not sanctified (and this by the actual design of Providence), and so intimate that it reaches to the very depths of our soul. For the Holy Spirit pours charity into our heart, makes a habitation of our soul, and directs our spiritual life by means of His gifts. The Virgin Mary has the efficacious influence of Mediatrix in the most profound and delicate operations of grace in our souls. And, finally, the action of the Holy Spirit and the co-operation of the most holy Virgin Mary are constant; without them, not one single character of Jesus would be traced on our souls, no virtue grow, no gift be developed, no grace increased, no bond of union with God be strengthened in the rich flowering of the spiritual life.

"Such is the place that the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary have in the order of sanctification. Therefore, Christian piety should put these two artisans of Christ in their true place, making devotion to them something necessary, profound, and constant." 14

                R. Life —
                    God gives us the Sacred Heart —
                    God gives us Mary's Immaculate Heart
                    Jesus gives to us His Mother as our Mother.
                    As a mother gives life to a child in
                    her womb, Mary is the Mediatrix of
                    all the grace that Christ gives to us,
                    Mary is the spiritual Mother, Mary is
                    full of grace.


                    From the Priestly Newsletter Book II, p. 179

Speaking of Mary, Vatican II tells us: "In an utterly singular way she cooperated by her obedience, faith, hope and burning charity in the Savior's work of restoring supernatural life to souls. For this reason she is a mother to us in the order of grace." 2

    From the Priestly Newsletter Book II, pp. 179-181

Mother at Our Side

    I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd is one who lays down his life for his sheep. The hired man, since he is not the shepherd and the sheep do not belong to him, abandons the sheep and runs away as soon as he sees a wolf coming, and then the wolf attacks and scatters the sheep; this is because he is only a hired man and has no concern for the sheep. I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for my sheep. (Jn 10:11-151)

    Yes, the Good Shepherd has laid down His life for us. As He was near death, an awesome episode in the work of redemption took place: Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, "Woman, this is your son". Then to the disciple he said, "This is your mother." And from that moment the disciple made a place for her in his home." (Jn 19:25-27).

    Speaking of Mary, Vatican II tells us: "In an utterly singular way she cooperated by her obedience, faith, hope and burning charity in the Savior's work of restoring supernatural life to souls. For this reason she is a mother to us in the order of grace." 2

    Mary is the Mother of Jesus. She is also our Mother. The above words of Scripture and of the Second Vatican Council attest to this.

    Yes, Jesus has given us Mary as our spiritual Mother. As He hung on the cross, Jesus told John to look upon Mary as his Mother, this John who represented all of us. In His moment of deepest anguish and suffering, Jesus was thinking of us. As the undescribable physical pain racked His body from head to toe, as the unfathomable spiritual anguish penetrated to the depths of His magnificent Heart, Jesus was thinking of us. If we allow this scene to penetrate into our hearts, if we take the time to contemplate the depth of Jesus' and Mary's love for us as their Hearts were pierced with grief, we are truly overwhelmed with the magnificent greatness, sorrow, and tenderness of the scene.

    The fact that Mary is our Mother, the fact that she has such a powerful role to play in our salvation in no way detracts from the mediatorship of Christ. Vatican II states: "The maternal duty of Mary toward men in no way obscures or diminishes this unique mediation of Christ, but rather shows its power. For all the saving influences of the Blessed Virgin on men originate, not from some inner necessity, but from the divine pleasure. They flow forth from the superabundance of the merits of Christ, rest on His mediation, depend entirely on it, and draw all their power from it. In no way do they impede the immediate union of the faithful with Christ. Rather, they foster this union." 3

    In her loving, maternal role, Mary cooperates with the Holy Spirit in forming Christ in us. Pope John Paul II tells us: "The Church knows that 'all the saving influences of the Blessed Virgin on mankind originate... from the divine pleasure...' This saving influence is sustained by the Holy Spirit, Who, just as He overshadowed the Virgin Mary when he began in her the divine motherhood, in a similar way constantly sustains her solicitude for the brothers and sisters of her Son." 4

    Mary, our Mother is ever with us, guiding us, teaching us, caring for us, protecting us, loving us. With her maternal assistance we go to the Father through and with Christ in the Holy Spirit.

    Mary nourishes our growth in Christ with a very tender and specialized love for each of us. She regards each of us as a precious, unique individual. John Paul II again speaks to us: "Of the essence of motherhood is the fact that it concerns the person. Motherhood always establishes a unique and unrepeatable relationship between two people: between mother and child and between child and mother. Even when the same woman is the mother of many children, her personal relationship with each one of them is of the very essence of motherhood. For each child is generated in a unique and unrepeatable way, and this is true both for the mother and for the child." 5

    The Holy Father then applies these ideas to Mary and us: "It can be said that motherhood 'in the order of grace' preserves the analogy with what 'in the order of nature' characterizes the union between mother and child. In the light of this fact it becomes easier to understand why in Christ's testament on Golgotha His Mother's new motherhood is expressed in the singular, in reference to one man." 6

    This is the awesome and consoling truth-you and I are very precious to Mary. She shows us her Heart as a symbol of her life of love, including her most special, unique love for each of us individually. Yes, she loves each of us much more than we can ever fathom. It is our great privilege and responsibility to love her in return. She asks for this love, she asks for our trust, she asks us to come to her maternal and Immaculate Heart, so that she can lead us ever closer to the Heart of her Son, Jesus.

    Are we sorrowful, anxious, troubled? Let us go to Mary our Mother and ask her to console us. Let us ask her for the grace to handle our sorrow, our anxieties, our troubles properly-according to God's will. In this way our suffering will bring us closer to Christ as it simultaneously allows us to contribute to the ongoing Christianization of the world.

    Are we especially joyful, happy, basking in the glow of a goal successfully accomplished? Let us go to Mary and ask her to help us handle our joy, our happiness, our success as God intends. Let us petition her not to allow our joy to make us forgetful of God, our God Who is the source of all true joy, success and happiness.

    Yes, Mary invites us to come to her in all circumstances-whether it be in joy or sorrow, success or failure, laughter or tears. Mary wants us to share in her maternal wisdom so that we may understand how to use our various experiences to come closer to God in Christ. Sharing our lives with Mary in this fashion, and on a consistent basis, requires that we love her, that we trust her, that we surrender ourselves to her maternal love.

    Help us, Mother Mary, to probe ever more deeply into the depths of your love for us. Help us to realize more and more that to be loved by you is to experience a sweetness, a warmth, a tenderness, a serenity, a security, which makes us cry out, "O Mother, how good and loving you are!"

                    He gives us Him Mother.

The Action of the Holy Spirit

    Archbishop Luis Martinez speaks to us of the action of the Holy Spirit upon us: "Love for the Holy Spirit also has its special character, which we should study in order completely to understand devotion to Him. We have explained how the Holy Spirit loves us, how He moves us like a divine breath that draws us to the bosom of God, like a sacred fire that transforms us into fire, like a divine artist who forms Jesus in us. Surely, then, our love for the Holy Spirit should be marked by loving docility, by full surrender, and by a constant fidelity that permits us to be moved, directed, and transformed by His sanctifying action.

    "Our love for the Father tends to glorify Him; our love for the Son, to transform ourselves into Him, our love for the Holy Spirit, to let ourselves be possessed and moved by Him." 11

11. Archbishop Luis Martinez, The Sanctifier, Pauline Books and Media, p. 68.


                R. She gave Him His life in her womb —
                    Mary is


                The pictures of Mary with Christ are so powerful

                Christ on the cross

                Christ with Mary under the Cross
                Mary is Co-redeemer



                R. Christ leads man to the Father
                    through the Holy Spirit.

                It is through the heart of Mary we
                    become more like Christ through
                    the power of the Holy Spirit forming us
                    more in the image and likeness of Jesus.

                The incarnation goes on in us.


                From the Holy Spirit Novena

Prayer for Strength and Light

We adore You, oh Holy Spirit. Give us strength, give us light, console us. We give ourselves entirely to You. Oh Spirit of light and grace, we want to only do the will of the Father. Enlighten us that we may live always in the Father's will.

Eternal Spirit fill us with Your Divine Wisdom that we may comprehend more fully insight into Your Divine Mysteries.

Give us lights, Oh Holy Spirit that we may know God. Work within the heart, the spiritual womb of the Virgin Mary, to form us more and more into the image of Jesus.


Prayer to Be One with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit

We long for You, Oh Spirit of Light, we long to know God, we want to be one with Him, our Divine God. We want to be one with the Father, know Him as a Person most intimately. We want to know the beloved One, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and live and dwell in Him at all times, every moment of our lives. We want to be one with You, Oh Spirit of Light, that You move in us in our every breath.


                R. We receive a sharing in God's life in Baptism —

                This life is nourished through the Eucharist and
                    the living word of God.


                From the Holy Spirit Novena

Prayer for the Word Alive in Our Hearts

We know, dear Holy Spirit, the Word in His human nature was brought forth within the womb of the woman. We pray that His word will be brought forth in our hearts as He lives and dwells in us. We want the incarnation to go on in our lives. Dear Holy Spirit, work in us.


                Mary of the Eucharist

                R. Mary leads us to her Son.

                I include here Prayer Before the Holy Sacrifice
                    of the Mass from December 27, 1995.


A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

-Mass Book, December 27, 1995


                Jesus: This is My Body.

                I died for you what more do you want.

                R. The bare back
                    the blood that beaded up on His head.

                Jesus: I stand at the door of your heart and I knock.
                    I am alive, I am alive, I am alive
                    outpouring of love - even in the poorest beggar.



The Sorrowful Mysteries

April 2, 1995
Fifth Sunday of Lent

The Agony in the Garden

1. Jesus: Quiet your hearts and put yourselves in My presence. Let go of all the distractions of your day and all of the things in your mind and focus totally on Me and My Passion.

2. R. See Jesus in the Garden. See as He kneels, He is in such agony. The Apostles are off to the side sleeping.

3. R. Put yourself there and experience as He experienced the sufferings in His Heart, the knowing, to know all that He was about to undergo and to see clearly that He could have, if He wanted to, stop all of it because He was God! But in compliance to the Father's Will and for greatest love of us, He went through this terrible persecution, passion, and death that He was about to undergo.

4. Jesus: Let go to Me, My child! Whatever is in your mind, you must put out of your mind and come to Me. All those with whom you are angry, all those you are feeling upset with, turn them over to Me and meditate now on Me. You must learn to focus on Me and to put other things out of your mind. Say you are sorry if you have offended your brother and totally turn your mind over to Me, for satan is constantly trying to taunt you. I ponder the ways of your heart. I know how you perform your deeds and the love that is in your heart. Let go of everything and focus totally on Me. Be with Me! Be there!

5. R. An angel appeared to Jesus to comfort Him and held the cup before Him. Jesus said to the Father: "Not My will, but Thine be done"!

6. R. Can you imagine what it would be like if you were in the Garden and would see all the events that were about to happen. Think of how we are anxious when we have such small things to do. Then think of what Jesus went through as He knelt in the Garden knowing that His time was near for Him to be handed over to His betrayers.

7. R. The natural fear of death came into play and Jesus saw before Him all of the persecution, all of the wounds, all that they would do to Him, and He said "yes" because He loves us so much!

8. R. Do we know how His Heart was in such agony for the world as it is today for the children that are murdered, for the people that have forgotten God and have turned vile and unkind in their hearts, for all the sins of sex that are happening, and the perverted deeds that are in men's minds? Do we know how Jesus suffered? Think of how we feel when we look at the world the way that it is and we know His immense love and we suffer inside to know this and to know that people are blind and they do not even come to Jesus. But think of how He suffered! He was about to go and die on the cross for love of us. He saw before Him all the souls that would ignore Him and not ever come for the great graces that He could give them.

9. R. His time was at hand! He came to this earth a baby! He came to die, to shed His blood for each and every soul. Jesus saw before Him the souls that would be condemned to the damning fires of hell despite His sufferings.

10. R. Think of how it is to see your children, those you love so much, and watch them make mistakes. Then think of how it is for Jesus who loved each soul dearly and know that they would sin mortally and condemn themselves to hell forever.

Song: I come to you with greatest love etc.


Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar

1. R. Think of the pain of Jesus' Heart. Jesus loved these men who whipped Him.

2. R. We want to be at peace and united to Jesus. Jesus' way is love. Jesus was scourged at the pillar and beaten, Jesus loved those who persecuted Him. Jesus asks us to love all even those who are angry with us. We are to love all men.

3. R. See Jesus as He was beaten, as He was wounded, the wounds that covered His body, the deep wounds! Think of going up to Jesus and seeing the wounds and being so close that you could actually touch Jesus.

4. R. If we were there and we actually saw the wounds so closely that we could touch Jesus, we would realize more what He truly went through because of His great love for us. Visualize as clearly as possible Jesus right before your eyes. See Him covered from the top of His head to His feet with wounds.

5. R. Jesus truly suffered because He loves us so much.

6. R. Jesus and Mary, we love You.

7. R. God can, in one second, give us a grace that will help us to understand and to know Him more deeply. We long to know deeper and deeper and deeper the Mystery of God's love. We want to be one with God more and more, so united that we can say as St. Paul:

Galatians 2: 19-20  ...I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me.

8. R. Ponder deeply the wounds that Jesus suffered. See the wounds covering His flesh, look at His pierced side! This is the love that He has for us this day. Souls this day will be lost to the fire of eternal damnation because of their sins, because of their willfulness and sinful lives. Pray, unite to the Mass through the intercession of Mary, so that these prayers are more powerful to help the souls that are hurting now, that will be condemned to death if they do not turn from their mortal sins. Outpour Your mercy, Oh God, upon us and hear our prayers.

9. R. Think of being so one in Jesus. Pray to the Father, united to Jesus in the Mass, in the Holy Spirit, through the powerful intercession of Mary and the angels and saints and the souls in purgatory. Pray for the souls.

Song: O Burning Heart, O love Divine, how sweet you are to me. I see the host, I know You are here to love and care for me.

10. R. What have we to fear if we realize even a minute amount, the great and ardent love that Jesus has for each one of us?

Song: I come to you with greatest love etc.


Jesus is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

1. R. You are being instructed by Jesus! You are being taught so that you may go out to this world and spread His love with conviction and be so deeply one in Him.

2. R. See Jesus stand in this room with us right now, with a crown of thorns on His head, dripping in blood! See Him stand here and look at us! His head, dripping in blood! See Him stand here and look at us!

3. R. Would we worry about the little incidental things that are parading in our minds, or would we realize how urgent His call is because this world is in such suffering and pain. See Jesus stand before us! What would our next action be?

4. R. How He loves us! They pounded into His head a sharp crown of piercing thorns! The blood ran down His face! The blood ran from His mouth from the blows that they gave to His most precious head! Can we see this clearly? See His face! Picture Him here with us! He loves us so much and He is coming to ask us to answer His call for this world is in such pain. They are so blind! Jesus calls out to us to pray fervently from the deepest recesses of our heart, to be one in Him, so as St. Paul says

Galatians 2: 19-20   ...I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me.

5. Jesus: Does My call fall on deaf ears? I am truly in your midst this day and I am speaking to you, My beloved ones! How can you not answer My call when you see Me covered and dripping with blood?

6. Jesus: You will be the lights that shine in the dark night! You will be the soldiers that go out to the world! I am teaching you lessons now. I am readying you for the days that are ahead. I am truly calling upon you to go out and to speak for Me to spread My messages here, My letters in the Blue Books, these Rosary Meditations.

7. Jesus: Who will do this work if you do not do the work? You - the ones that I am speaking to!

8. Jesus: And they spit on Me and they tore My clothing! They mocked Me and they called Me King! I Am Who Am!

9. Jesus: I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God! I call to you to answer and to go into this world and to spread My love to all.

10. Jesus: You must unite with Me! Let Me operate in you. I want to live in you and operate through you, let go.

Sing: Little Child

Song: I come to you with greatest love etc.


Jesus Carries His Cross up Calvary

1. Jesus: Stand with Mary on the way to Calvary. I look in Mary's eyes. See as I look into your eyes!

2. Jesus: Let go to Me — I am in you — I dwell in your graced, baptized soul.

3. Jesus: You must let go, surrender, consecrate your hearts to My Heart. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus.

4. Jesus: I carried the heavy cross on My back on the way to My death! Think of carrying the cross and knowing that you would soon die!

5. Jesus: Be so fixed on My Passion! Pray to the Spirit to lead you deeper and deeper into an understanding of these events that occurred as I made this walk on My way to My death.

6. R. Spirit, outpour Your gifts upon us, so that we may be more open, so that we will know deeper insights into the mysteries of your love.

7. R. Dear God, we want Your Word deep in us.

8. R. Outpour to us Your grace that we may more deeply understand the Word of God!

Jesus: Listen and be taught — open your hearts and let Me fill you.

9. R. Deeply hear everything God is telling us when we read the Word of God! Deep! Deep! Deep! Everything is deep! Our love becomes deeper! Deeper and Deeper and Deeper we want to penetrate deeper into the mysteries of His life and His Mother's life. Focus on His life in us. As we go about our day, we perform every action as we live in Him.

10. R. Some of His wounds went all the way through (His hands and feet.) Let our love for Jesus be so deep. Let His Word live in us as a two-edged sword.

Song: I come to you with greatest love etc.


Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1. Jesus: See Me dying on the cross! See as I hung for three agonizing hours to My death! What do you see? How deep is your insight into this death? I am love! How deeply do you love one another? You must let go. You must come to Me and let Me operate from your being. To be deeper in love with Me, you must learn how to love one another. I want you to love one another in deep loving relationships. The world has put up walls. They keep themselves from one another. I came and spread My arms wide open. I gave My all. I did not hold anything back. I ask you to open your arms widely and to give your all to Me, to let Me operate from you, to let Me lead you into deep loving relationships with Me and My Father, the Holy Spirit, My Mother, and with one another.

2. Jesus: How is your heart? Is your heart open or is your heart closed? Pray to the Spirit to open your heart! Think of the words that I speak to you. Pray for a greater life in Me. The more I outpour My grace to you, the more you will respond to My love and to My Word.

3. Jesus: Ask to receive abundant graces. Pray every day for grace to be more deeply in love with Me.

4. Jesus: Do you see the world today — I am giving you the Mighty Medicine. I am telling you to spread My letters of love in God's Blue Book and these rosary Meditations to the hurting souls, to the hungry souls. I love you - I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the Flock.

5. Jesus: I tell you of My immense love because I love you so much. I tell you of this immense love and teach you so that you will go into this world and carry My message to all those that you come in contact with. You will speak in front of groups for Me, My beloved ones, use My messages I give here and give My rosary meditations. Listen to My words. Open your hearts wide for you need these teachings to do the work that I am giving you to do.

6. Jesus: You are being taught from Jesus! Will you answer the call and go into this world and spread this love? Look at your Church! Look at those who speak! Do you hear Me speak to you? You can carry this message of My love to this world. Will you answer this call?

7. Jesus: You must come to Me and listen! Listen to every word that I give to you so that every word is intense in its meaning in your heart.

8. Jesus: It is depth, My little ones! See My wounds! Some are shallow, some are a little deeper, some go all the way through! How deep is the love relationship that you want to have with Me? I give you My Divine Love! See the wound in My side. This is the love that I have for you!

9. Jesus: Each person is at a different place on their spiritual journey to Me. It is up to you to open your hearts and let Me penetrate you deeper, deeper, let Me fill you with My life in you. I long to be closer to you and I am calling you to such a union with Me so that you are motivated by My love to go out to this world and be My missionaries.

10. R. See the side of Jesus with the wound that is open! Through that wound, is the beating Heart of God-made-Man, who came to this earth a baby, who lived and died for love of us, and now remains with us this day in the Eucharist. Truly present, no less present than the day He walked on the earth! He calls out to go into the world, to give light to the world through us. Jesus wants to operate and be one in us!

Song: I come to you with greatest love etc.


Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary

1. The Prophecy of Simeon — R. Mary went to the Temple. Simeon met Mary and Joseph. Simeon told Mary of the sufferings, she and Jesus would undergo. Mary held Jesus, Jesus so beautiful. Simeon told Mary of these deep sufferings! And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

2. The Flight into Egypt — R. Mary and Joseph had to flee to Egypt with the baby Jesus, in the middle of the night because of Herod. They prepared for the journey. They had to stay away for a while until it was safe to come back. Such a hardship to get up in the night and to pack and leave.

3. Loss of Jesus in the Temple — R. The child Jesus was lost in the temple, and Mary and Joseph were looking for Him. Help us, Mary, so that we never go from Jesus, but become more and more united to Him. Please outpour Your grace in abundance and help us to cooperate with these graces.

4. The Eyes of Jesus and Mary meet on the Way to Calvary — R. Look at Their eyes, the oneness between Jesus and Mary! Such union! The summation of a whole life in that peering look!

5. Jesus died on the Cross!  Sing: A Song from Jesus Refrain

6. Mary held Jesus in her Arms under the Cross — R. See the lifeless body of Jesus as Mary held Jesus, in the arms of His loving Mother! See the horror in her face to behold her beloved Son. Mary holds Him now, His lifeless body! Mary once held His little body in her arms filled with life, now she holds His body in her arms. Look at her face and look at her eyes. This is the final curtain! He came to bring us new life.

7.  Jesus is Locked in the Tomb — R. Fear and anger were outside the tomb in the guard's hearts that guarded Jesus. They locked Jesus in the tomb and they were happy that they had locked Jesus in. All Jesus did was love. But they locked Him in the tomb!


R. This rosary was prayed before the Pieta statue in back of the Holy Rosary Chapel at the Holy Spirit Center. Jesus was present in the Tabernacle in that Chapel. Rita, Cathy, Joe, Gerald and Donna Schlautman, and Marty were present.

Rita stated that she saw a light all around and within the Pieta statue during the rosary.


April 15, 1995 - Feast of St. Isidore

Locution Received from Our Blessed Mother after Evening Rosary

Mary: I call each of you to this Center to be the lights that shine in the dark world. Each one of my beloved children, I lead on your way. Each child is given a special task from the Father, each one given the talents to carry out this task. You have been called to this point in your life and given all you need to accomplish the work that the Father has called you to do.

Let go and let the plan of the Father unfold. Do not be anxious. Stay fixed on the Heart of my Son. Satan will come to you in the night and fill your hearts with fear. You must surrender always to the Heart of Jesus. Fear is from the evil one.

My dear children, the way of my Son is peace! God is running the world! Let go and surrender! Every event that is happening in your life, is being allowed by Him to strengthen you for what is to come. You are learning lessons for the task that is at hand. You will march on the world and carry the love of my Son in all places. Think of the size of the world. You do not have to bump heads with one another.

You are chosen by my Son as apostles to spread His love to the dark world. Carry the light of His love within your hearts and know that He is forever with you, that your name is written in the palm of His hand.

Song: I have called you by Name

Walk as soldiers of the light and carry the love of my Son embedded deeply in your hearts into the world that is walking in darkness. You are the City set on a Hill that will shine and show the love of Jesus to the world.

I am appearing as Our Lady of Light to lead you, my sweet ones, into the world under my protective mantle. You are my little children. How I love you. Be little children of the Father, always obedient, not willful, always complying to His will.

Remember always to be at peace for the devil is a raging lion that aims to trip you on your way. Do not be hasty and anxious. Release your anxieties and come to the Heart of my Son.

Pray, my little ones, for your journey is rough, but the rewards are so great. You will experience great gifts from God.

I am Mary, and thank you for answering my call to come to this Center.

Guiding Light - Reflect on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light homily series - Reflect on the Word - Cycle B     The Word leaves an impression on our souls. In my thoughts and reflections are born a more tangible understanding of these eternal concepts presented in the Gospels and the readings. Anyone can read a sentence, but not anyone can absorb it's true meaning. Truth, in this day and age, is almost a matter of opinion or individual entitlement. We believe that Christ's truth is our Roman Catholic Church. We, as priests, champion it's teachings; we are ambassadors for the Pope and Christ to those faces looking at us. We are the light by which our congregation reads to reflect upon real truth and we do it hand in hand. $15

Guiding Light - Steadfast to the Son
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle A of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light homily series - Steadfast to the Son - Cycle A    The sunflower is a great example of how we should be steadfastly guided by light. What a powerful thought that this exceptional plant is not stuck in one pose day in and day out, yet adaptable and magnetized to the sun. We feel the same about our Son. Our heads turns to face Christ as each day presents its challenges to find light. We join together like plants in a field and soak up the Son through the pulpit. We are a warm circle of strength using the wind of our breath to carry our priests' words, Christ's words, to new rich soil. $15

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul - Cycle C    In a world rapidly advancing and encouraging personal gain, we are faced with modern problems. There is a challenge to find time in our busy schedules for Sunday Mass or a family meal. We are able to research, shop, bank and even work without hearing one human voice. It is no wonder that we may often feel disconnected and famished at our week's end. In Fr. Joe's third book of homilies from Cycle C, we are reminded of the charity that Christ intended us to show each other. We have a calling to turn the other cheek and be the Good Samaritan to others. We are rewarded with the Father's kingdom and love when we are not worthy. We are not left alone or hungry. $15

Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word - Cycle B    At times we may feel that our path to Christ is a bit "out of focus". Like the disciples in the Book of Mark, this ordinary life clouds our vision of Christ's Divinity. We may doubt the practicality or possibility of applying His teachings and example to our modern life. Cycle B's homilies are a "guiding light" to help us realize Jesus' Messianic greatness and His promise of better things to come. $15

Priestly Newsletter - 2000 #1 - CD. - Christ is Our Strength - Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. It is so beautiful. "This brief passage contains one of the greatest lessons of the spiritual life. As we progress along our spiritual journey, we become increasingly aware of how weak we are in our-selves, but how strong we are in Christ. To experience our weakness involves suffering. The degree and kind of suffering can vary. The suffering can include the experience of the classical dark night of the spirit as described by St. John of the Cross. One of the main purposes of the dark night is to make a person keenly aware of his or her helplessness without God." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10

His voice is so powerful as he read each Newsletter from his heart and soul. "Every man has his own share in the redemption. Each one is also called to share in that suffering through which the redemption was accomplished. He is called to share in that suffering through which all human suffering has also been redeemed. In bringing about the redemption through suffering, Christ has also raised human suffering to the level of the redemption. Thus each man in his suffering can also become a sharer in the redemptive suffering of Christ..." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10
