The Assumption of Our Lady into Heaven
1. Song: Immaculate Mary
2. Hail Mary
3. R. And so we need to focus on the purity of the heart of Mary, to realize that, Mary is the sinless Virgin, that Mary didn't have a wounded human nature, and tendencies toward jealousy, and anger, and envy, and lustfulness, like we do. But we, the poor banished children of Adam and Eve, have these tendencies. But Mary and Jesus are the pure Hearts of gentle love, the sinless Hearts.
And Jesus as the Sacred Heart points to His Heart — in this world today, in which so many hearts have turned to stone. And He says "Do you see My Heart? Do you know that the life of your body depends on your heart? Do you know what happens when your heart gets clogged up? Do you know that your heart needs to beat?
And yet we can be so blinded, that we do not put the connection together, between the Sacred Heart of Jesus and our own heart, as we watch our hearts get clogged, and clogged and clogged, and yet we do not compare it, to the years and years and years and years, of unforgiveness and anger — the old wounds that we just won't let go of, like trophies that keep us stuck from loving. And so we pray to the Holy Spirit, and we go to the Immaculate Heart of our Mother, and we ask her, and we ask the Holy Spirit, to work in the purity of Mary's heart, to help bring us forth, more and more, children of the light, not children of the darkness, Mary's Immaculate Heart, our spiritual womb.
We can see how we were born in our mother's womb, and she gave to us life. We go to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, her spiritual womb and the Holy Spirit fills us, more and more, with His life, that we will be children of the light, that we will be saturated, more and more, with His grace, which is His life in us. Oh God, help people to recognize the message that You have given. Help me to speak, that they will hear, that they will know that Mary appeared on this building, to deliver this message — the message of the importance, to the world, as a little city of light, that as we go to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and the Sacred Heart of Jesus, there will be greater peace and light all over the world.
God is love and God is light, and God is — God gives us His Word, the Commandments, the Catholic Church. We're not rewriting the truth about God. We are, seeking to know more, about God, that we can be more one in Him. We are not writing the script. The script is written. The happiness etched on our soul, will be that in which, our goal is heaven and God. This is the plan of the Father. Man was created, His goal is to be for God in heaven. When people have made other things their gods, they become miserable. When people get more and more, hardened in heart, by anger, by seeing themselves as a god, they are going against the reason they were created, which is to love God first and to love their neighbor as themselves.
And hearts can be like stone — chip away at the stone — how many times in the scripture, is it loaded with the hardened hearts? God is giving to us the Blue Books, to teach us about His soft and supple, burning Heart of love. God wants us to obey. It follows the rules. If we are to follow Him, we obey the rules. We are not willful. Adam and Eve were willful, they did their own will, and we suffered this wounded human nature, because of the sin of Adam and Eve. We don't write a new script. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. We live His Word. We follow the Magesterum of the Church.
If an individual is not living according to the truth, they are veering from it, the Church itself is solid. It teaches us of truth. In seeking truth, it is to seek, more and more, the gifts that God has given, through the stability of the Church. Living by the Word and the Commandments. Mary obeyed the will of the Father. You don't hear Mary screaming, as she's going into Egypt, "Joseph, how could God the Father, do this to me?" Mary said "yes". And Simeon prophesied and said, "A sword too will pierce your heart oh Mary." Mary said "yes." Mary teaches us to say "yes", "Yes" to God'." Let your "yes" be "yes" and your "no" mean "no".
And in so many of the movies, the confusion is there — things that are false are shown as true and visa-versa. Many things that are evil are shown as being okay. They make right, wrong and wrong, right in the movies. And then the kids get all confused in their heads. In giving our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, and spreading it through the diocese, through the children in the schools, through the families, we are rooted in the Two Hearts, of perfect obedience, in compliance to the will of God - the Hearts of greatest love. There is unity in dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
School kids that consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary are more unified in the classroom. Think of 50 different kids with 50 different wills. The structure of this Movement, is the structure given to us from God. Help us by praying as God has intended. You don't rewrite it. You just do what He has asked, spreading the consecration, doing what the Church is telling us to do, meditating on the mysteries of the rosary, living a deeper life of consecration, going to the Eucharist, and doing our hour, because we get saturated, more and more, with His precious grace, His life — going to confession, trying to be good and say we're sorry — working with each other, even when somebody is difficult.
If God has given to us a tremendous grace, and we can see, that we need to love and help someone in our family, rather than meeting them like I got bullhorns on. This might be the very thing that may help them to turn someday. The old, "eye for an eye", "a tooth for a tooth", is not how we are to live. It's forgiveness and love, and working with each other, looking at ourselves, going to confession. What is a Shepherds of Christ Movement about — it's about the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary. It's about putting ourselves in the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the New Adam and the New Eve. It's about being fed and bred, at the Eucharist — the Body and Blood of Jesus.
And He took them up the mountain, and a voice from heaven said, "This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased." And He gives to us His Body and Blood, that we can be transformed, more and more, in our souls, to greater and greater light. If we ever saw our own graced soul, we would fall on our face. But we see ourselves with imperfect vision. We do not even know ourselves, how tremendous we are, in the eyes of God, that He created us and made us, and that He's with us.
And that's what the Blue Book does for somebody — they pick it up, they open it up, and they see with the vision of God, where they're starting to not understand because of the confusion of the world, because of their own tainted vision — they open up the Blue Book, and they see with the vision of God. And it puts us back in line, seeing that He has all the Power, seeing that He is with us, knowing that we must trust in Him, reading the Word and living by it. Some people just seeking dominance, will analyze the Word, and try to tell the stuff, that's not really right. We have a wounded human nature. There is, in us, that tendency for seeking dominance for dominance sake.
And we have to pray for grace to keep that in check, that we're more like Mary, humble, that we are always obedient to God, we are living according to God's will, that our whole life is lived to help build the Kingdom of God. Mary was assumed into heaven, body and soul. Jesus ascended into heaven. The Two glorified bodies in heaven. Our mission from this building, is to do the mission that God has given to us, which is to spread the devotion to the Two Hearts, majorly through the Priestly Newsletter, as we send it to these hierarchy, every other month.
4. Mary: I am Mary your Mother and I have appeared to you, at this building, to ask you to help to bring to completion the mission I began at Fatima, in spreading the devotion to my Immaculate Heart, and the devotion to my Son's Sacred Heart. I am the Queen of Peace. In this lies your peace, not with guns and powder and hatred, trying to be right, just for the sake of being right. It is in love — for God commands you, my children, to love Him, with your whole heart, your whole soul and your whole being, and to love one another as yourselves — to work with each other, for His holy purpose.
