Psalm 18: 19-20

                    he freed me, set me at large,
                    he rescued me because he loves me.
                    Yahweh rewards me for my uprightness,
                    as my hands are pure, so he repays me, 


Today's readings 

Sirach 36: 5-6, 10-17

Send new portents, do fresh wonders, win glory for your hand and your right arm.
Rouse your fury, pour out your rage, destroy the opponent, annihilate the enemy.

Gather together all the tribes of Jacob, restore them their heritage as at the beginning.
Take pity, Lord, on the people called by your name, on Israel whom you have made your first-born.
Have compassion on your holy city, on Jerusalem, the place where you rest.
Fill Zion with your praises and your sanctuary with your glory.
Vindicate those whom you created first, fulfil what has been prophesied in your name.
Give those who wait for you their reward, let your prophets be proved true.
Grant, Lord, the prayer of your servants, in the terms of Aaron's blessing on your people,
so that all the earth's inhabitants may acknowledge that you are the Lord, the everlasting God.


Psalm 79: 8-9,11,13

Do not count against us the guilt of former generations,
in your tenderness come quickly to meet us,
for we are utterly weakened;
help us, God our Saviour,
for the glory of your name;
Yahweh, wipe away our sins,
rescue us for the sake of your name.

May the groans of the captive reach you,
by your great strength save those who are condemned to death!

And we, your people, the flock that you pasture,
    will thank you for ever,
    will recite your praises from age to age.


Mark 10: 32-45

They were on the road, going up to Jerusalem; Jesus was walking on ahead of them; they were in a daze, and those who followed were apprehensive. Once more taking the Twelve aside he began to tell them what was going to happen to him, ‘Now we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man is about to be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the gentiles, who will mock him and spit at him and scourge him and put him to death; and after three days he will rise again.’  

James and John, the sons of Zebedee, approached him. ‘Master,’ they said to him, ‘We want you to do us a favour.’ He said to them, ‘What is it you want me to do for you?’ They said to him, ‘Allow us to sit one at your right hand and the other at your left in your glory.’ But Jesus said to them, ‘You do not know what you are asking. Can you drink the cup that I shall drink, or be baptised with the baptism with which I shall be baptised?’ They replied, ‘We can.’ Jesus said to them, ‘The cup that I shall drink you shall drink, and with the baptism with which I shall be baptised you shall be baptised, but as for seats at my right hand or my left, these are not mine to grant; they belong to those to whom they have been allotted.’

When the other ten heard this they began to feel indignant with James and John, so Jesus called them to him and said to them, ‘You know that among the gentiles those they call their rulers lord it over them, and their great men make their authority felt. Among you this is not to happen. No; anyone who wants to become great among you must be your servant, and anyone who wants to be first among you must be slave to all. For the Son of man himself came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.’


                Song: Peace is Flowing like a River

                R. Dear Jesus

                    If I knew today was my last day
                how would I live it —

                Jesus: I give you love — to love others —
                    I want you to love Me —

                R. Oh God - help my unbelief
                    help me to serve You, my God —

                When the day ends and it is dark, we
                    see the ending of a day
                    forever, for we live in time —

                We wake to a new day —

                The sun comes up — our hopes for that
                    day are new —

                Jesus: Do not linger on wounds of the past —

                    I died for your sins —
                    I give you the Mass today and I outpour
                    My richest grace to you —

                Man thinks his life will not end
                    when in fact - his life here is so
                    very short —

                You are here to learn about love
                You are here to learn
                You are here to prepare yourself for
                    your heavenly reward

                Here today — gone tomorrow and
                    you are snatched from the
                    place you once held so secure
                    to leave it to others —

                Everything so perfect for you, you
                    think, but you leave your
                    treasures behind —

                What goes with you is how you loved
                    God and others —

                So a man can say - I don't want to work
                    getting along with others —

                I will narrow my circle of friends —
                    I will not follow the call you
                    give me Lord lest I fall into
                    sins because it is hard to
                    get along with some others


Matthew 25: 14-30

‘It is like a man about to go abroad who summoned his servants and entrusted his property to them. To one he gave five talents, to another two, to a third one, each in proportion to his ability. Then he set out on his journey. The man who had received the five talents promptly went and traded with them and made five more. The man who had received two made two more in the same way. But the man who had received one went off and dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money. Now a long time afterwards, the master of those servants came back and went through his accounts with them. The man who had received the five talents came forward bringing five more. "Sir," he said, "you entrusted me with five talents; here are five more that I have made." His master said to him, "Well done, good and trustworthy servant; you have shown you are trustworthy in small things; I will trust you with greater; come and join in your master’s happiness." Next the man with the two talents came forward. "Sir," he said, "you entrusted me with two talents; here are two more that I have made." His master said to him, "Well done, good and trustworthy servant; you have shown you are trustworthy in small things; I will trust you with greater; come and join in your master’s happiness." Last came forward the man who had the single talent. "Sir," said he, "I had heard you were a hard man, reaping where you had not sown and gathering where you had not scattered; so I was afraid, and I went off and hid your talent in the ground. Here it is; it was yours, you have it back." But his master answered him, "You wicked and lazy servant! So you knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered? Well then, you should have deposited my money with the bankers, and on my return I would have got my money back with interest. So now, take the talent from him and give it to the man who has the ten talents. For to everyone who has will be given more, and he will have more than enough; but anyone who has not, will be deprived even of what he has. As for this good–for–nothing servant, throw him into the darkness outside, where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth."


                Jesus: You were called to do God's will —
                    I showed you this in My life —
                    I did the Father's will to My death
                        on the cross —

                    Mary obeyed the will of the Father —
                        Mary lived to serve God —
                        Mary did not plan what she wanted —
                            she did God's will

                Adam and Eve wanted to be equal to God —
                    they disobeyed the will of the Father —

                This was the fall of man —
                They wanted their will —
                Satan tempted them —
                The devil told them lies


Joel 2: 12-18  

'But now — declares Yahweh —
come back to me with all your heart,
fasting, weeping, mourning.'
Tear your hearts and not your clothes,
and come back to Yahweh your God,
for he is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger, rich in faithful love,
and he relents about inflicting disaster.
Who knows if he will not come back,
and leave a blessing behind him,
a cereal offering and a libation
to be presented to Yahweh your God?

Blow the ram's-horn in Zion!
Order a fast,
proclaim a solemn assembly,
call the people together,
summon the community,
assemble the elders,
gather the children,
even infants at the breast!
Call the bridegroom from his bedroom
and the bride from her bower!
Let the priests, the ministers of Yahweh,
stand weeping between portico and altar,
saying, 'Spare your people, Yahweh!
Do not expose your heritage
   to the contempt,
to the sarcasm of the nations!
Why give the peoples cause to say,
"Where is their God?" '

Then, becoming jealous over his country,
Yahweh took pity on his people.


Psalm 51: 3-4, 5-6, 12-13, 14, 17

A prayer of contrition

For I am well aware of my offences, 
my sin is constantly in mind. 
Against you, you alone, I have sinned, 
I have done what you see to be wrong, 

that you may show your saving justice when you pass sentence, 
and your victory may appear when you give judgement, 
remember, I was born guilty, 
a sinner from the moment of conception. 

But you delight in sincerity of heart, 
and in secret you teach me wisdom. 

Give me back the joy of your salvation, 
sustain in me a generous spirit. 
I shall teach the wicked your paths, 
and sinners will return to you.

Deliver me from bloodshed, God, God of my salvation, 
and my tongue will acclaim your saving justice. 

Sacrifice to God is a broken spirit, 
a broken, contrite heart you never scorn. 


2 Corinthians 5: 20 - 6: 2

    So we are ambassadors for Christ; it is as though God were urging you through us, and in the name of Christ we appeal to you to be reconciled to God. For our sake he made the sinless one a victim for sin, so that in him we might become the uprightness of God.

As his fellow-workers, we urge you not to let your acceptance of his grace come to nothing. As he said, 'At the time of my favour I have answered you; on the day of salvation I have helped you'; well, now is the real time of favour, now the day of salvation is here.


                "Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ, King of endless Glory"


Psalm 95: 8

Do not harden your hearts as at Meribah, 
as at the time of Massah in the desert, 


Matthew 6: 1-6, 16-18

'Be careful not to parade your uprightness in public to attract attention; otherwise you will lose all reward from your Father in heaven. So when you give alms, do not have it trumpeted before you; this is what the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets to win human admiration. In truth I tell you, they have had their reward. But when you give alms, your left hand must not know what your right is doing; your almsgiving must be secret, and your Father who sees all that is done in secret will reward you. 'And when you pray, do not imitate the hypocrites: they love to say their prayers standing up in the synagogues and at the street corners for people to see them. In truth I tell you, they have had their reward. But when you pray, go to your private room, shut yourself in, and so pray to your Father who is in that secret place, and your Father who sees all that is done in secret will reward you.

'When you are fasting, do not put on a gloomy look as the hypocrites do: they go about looking unsightly to let people know they are fasting. In truth I tell you, they have had their reward. But when you fast, put scent on your head and wash your face, so that no one will know you are fasting except your Father who sees all that is done in secret; and your Father who sees all that is done in secret will reward you.


                Sing: Pardon your People in our Weakness

                Jesus: Lent is a time to repent
                Lent is a time to take stock —
                    to see what is in the heart —

                To look at old unloving, selfish
                    habits —

                To start anew

                A chart was given with, a clear plastic
                    over it

                On the chart the record for our sins
                    was kept 


                R. In Lent we want to lift the plastic
                    so we can get rid of those
                    old habits that are unloving
                    and offend God and
                    that we do that are unloving to others —

                We must be ready for these
                    unwanted habits to go —

                The alcoholic can keep drinking and
                    make promise after promise to
                        control himself —

                But we need God's help to die to the
                    ways not like God and to
                    be more and more in His image
                    and likeness — 


                Song: Loving and Forgiving

                R. We can be willful about our health —
                    we have needs for our body —
                    we may have bad unhealthy food
                        habits — until something goes
                        wrong with our health and we
                        see we have to do what our
                        body needs —

                God created us to love Him and others —
                    to go out and spread the Good News —
                    We can tell ourselves that our
                        old isolated ways — not working
                        as we should to grow in
                        relationships are okay —
                        trying to control everything because
                        we want what we want —
                        but it leaves us miserable
                        because it can block our call from God —
                        it can leave us empty — isolated —
                            and we stand alone and lonely
                            because of our need to do it
                            our way and not God's ways—

                Here is some messages from Blue Book II.


I Am a Real Person

March 2, 1994 5:15 a.m.

Jesus: Dear child, I love you so much I died and gave My life for you. If you tell anyone anything, tell them I am a person. When people realize how I am truly a person on fire for love of them, then they will be able to get closer to Me.

I am truly a person. The same Jesus Who died on the cross lives in the little host in the tabernacle.

The world is so blind! My heart is aching so! I come to tell you in this message of My love for them. Please tell them I am aching so for I love them!

Your job is to preach of My intense, intimate love. You live for love of Me alone. Do not think about what you are doing. You operate for My love only.

You need to spend time with your children, being alone and playing with them. This is My work for you. Others never come before your children. Talk to your children every day. Pray alone with them. Go to Mass and Communion with them. You must be alone with each child every day and have time to play with them. If others call you, tell them you have to be alone with your children. I am calling you to this commitment. Read them My letters every day. You are spending too much time with others and not enough alone with your children. Every day you must have some time alone with them. Their lives are very important to Me.

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. I will make things so clear to you, but your mind must be totally free to receive My messages. You must focus on Me and Me alone.

I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I will aid you in distributing these messages. They are My messages of love and I want them out. You worry about our love affair. This is Number One in your life. Everything else takes a back seat to your time alone with Me. No time is enough time. I want your constant union with Me.

I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I know all you need. You must remain selfless and unattached. Forget yourself entirely. Live your life for Me. Do not think, do not fret, do not fume, do not try hard. Let go and let Me operate you! Pray the Prayer for Union with Me. I will act in you and you will do this work with ease. I am the Almighty God. I do the work. You remain selfless and unattached to anything you do. Live only for love of Me. Act only as I prompt you. Your life you spend promoting My love. This is why you live: to speak of My love, to love God, to love your brothers. Do all you do for love of Me. Every act of surrender is the greatest gift of love you can give Me!

Surrender and be selfless. Concentrate on My love affair with you and you will do what I am telling you to do. I want total union with you. I want your life to be in harmony with Me. You operate only as I do in you. This takes constant prayer and selflessness. You must pray the Prayer for Union with Me constantly. This keeps you away from yourself.

I am your ardent lover. I am a true person. My person comes forth in these letters. They will circulate. Do not worry about anything but our love affair. When I act in you, do not think of what you did. Offer up to Me any temptation to evaluate your behavior. When I act in you, you do not need to evaluate what you did. If I am doing it, then you should not worry. I will do as I need to do to accomplish what I intend to accomplish. Remain this selfless: be My empty vessel, be the windup toy and let Me have full reign over you!

Your job is to let Me possess your soul. Do not worry about what you have done. Focus only on Me and how I love you. All your actions are actions from your greatest love for Me. I am on fire for love of you. You will not stumble. I need you to accomplish this work. I will guard your every action. Just remain selfless and in constant Union with Me!

I love you. Jesus.


He Is Alive

March 2, 1994 1:00 p.m.  At St. Gertrude

R. I saw You in my mind's eye at the Priests' Residence Chapel, clothed in a white tunic and a red garb. I felt You present there.

He is so alive. Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist. Who, who are we to behold God in our midst! We wander around with sorrow in our hearts when God is truly waiting for us. I cannot express the excitement in my breast to behold the Son of God waiting for me here. He is truly a person. He is a man. He is present, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, in the Eucharist exposed here.

Oh, Jesus, I honor, worship, adore and love you. Jesus, Jesus, Son of God. I am so excited to sit here with God exposed here. He loves us with such intensity, tenderness and ardency. He is God.

Oh, ye faithful ones, pray to Him to know Him better! He is so sweet and good and generous and loving! (I still smell the incense.) He is your God. He has all you need or will ever need. He loved you to His death.

Oh, Jesus, remove the blinders from our eyes. Holy Spirit come and give us Your gifts and open us up to you. Blessed, Blessed Mother, help us to behold the love of your dear, dear Son! We love you, oh, Blessed Lady, you who are ever by His side, you who never leave us, you who are the mother of God and mother to us this day! How could our hearts be sad with such love poured out to us from God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit and our loving mother?

This world will pass away and all that will remain are the things of God. Senseless treasures we behold only to discover that they are fleeting memories in our lives. Today's treasures, yesterday's forgotten possessions. Let God possess us. Be only about the things of Him. He is the true treasure. All that is of Him is the true treasure in the field.

Nothing on this earth can compare to God. Nothing even is a speck compared to Him. My soul is thirsting for You, oh God. My soul thirsts for You.

I want to cry for the souls that are missing such abundant love. He is so loving and He loves every soul so much and He cries for you all to come.

Jesus: Come, My little ones. Come to Me. Come and let Me caress your little bodies and comfort your troubled souls. I have never left your side. Even though you wander from Me, I never wander from you.


The World Is Cold, I Want You To Love

March 2, 1994

R. To live only for the world is to become numb to your feelings. The world has become violent, cruel and evil. It makes you numb to the truth. It is full of self. It does not give. It takes. The world operates from its head. Jesus calls us to love God and love one another. Love is action from the heart. Love is sensitive to feelings. Love is spiritual. Many who live in the world have trouble with their feelings. They want to protect themselves from the cold world. They build a barrier around themselves for protection. Operating from the heart is spontaneous. One cannot protect oneself with a barrier and be spontaneous at the same time.

Jesus: I call you, little ones, to action from your heart. My love is endless. It knows no bounds. I call you to love. Love gives freely. Love is selfless, not selfish.

I am God. I am the source of all love. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. All love is rooted in Me. My love is unconditional. I gave this love to you that you might live. Follow in My ways. I want to love you intimately. The world in it's coldness does not give. Surrender yourself to Me. Become selfless. Open yourself to Me. Let Me fill you with all you need to love God and love your brothers.

You cannot be a child of this world and a child of love. Come to Me. Let Me possess your soul. Let Me operate your very being. I am Jesus, the Son of God. I want to love your brothers through you. You are My hand! You are My heart! You will warm this cold world when you stay fixed in Me. Come and surrender yourself to Me. Become selfless and unattached and I will dwell in your soul.

I love you. Jesus.

R. Souls are made to love. Not to love is to frustrate the very nature of the soul.



March 2, 1994
At Cathedral After Communion

Jesus: I want you to love Me as I love you. If I asked you to lay down your life for Me, you would give this freely of yourself. I need this surrender from you that you put Me above all things--not some things, all things. I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt not have any gods before Me--not your husband, your children, your life, your house. I want your total surrender! I am not asking you to give these things up. I am asking you to love Me more than any of these things, that you are willing to give them up for Me!

This is freedom. When your love is for Me and Me alone, no one has any control over you. You live for Me and I am Almighty. I love you with the most ardent love and you know all that comes from Me is from Him Who laid down His life for you.

Do you love Me? Would you lay your life down for Me? If you love, you give of yourself. Do you love each other? Do you give of yourself to one another or do you have relationships that give to you? This is not love. Love gives from the heart. Love is for the good of the other. I gave My life for you that you might live. Follow the Master. I did not die for any of My own gratifications, I died to show you how I loved you! I gave My only life for you. I love you this much!

I call you to love. Love is action from your heart. Do you love Me this way or do you just do busy work and call it love?

To learn about love you must come and be with Me. Sit and let Me teach you My ways. I sit with My red garb, covering My white tunic, you at My feet and I teach you ever so sweetly each day. You are My beloved ones. I died for you. I give you this same love today. Love gives to the other. Do you give this kind of love to Me and your brother or do you ask what others and I will give to you?

You do not know love if you do not come and you are not taught by Me. I am the author of love. I teach the mighty lessons of love. I died out of love for you.

You cannot love intimately if you hold back. To love Me, you must totally surrender, surrender all you hold on to. People do not love Me because they want to hold back. If you want intimacy with Me, you must be willing to surrender your all to Me.

Are you willing to do this? This is where the power is. When you give your all, I possess your soul and I am all powerful. I want your all, not little pieces you stingily let go of. I want your all. Then you will have an intimate union with God. Then you will live in His love and be powered by His might. Then you will be free. I will operate you and you will be united to Me as one. What power, God dwelling within your breast and acting from your soul! Become selfless and unattached to anything. I am God and you shall not have any gods before Me!



Prayer of St. Francis

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

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


                R. How stubborn are we not to love —

                    Did you ever burn a dinner in
                        a pot and it is so hard to get
                        it out — it is baked on,
                        burned on —
                    It has to soak — it takes work to
                        remove it —

                Sarah had a white blouse and she
                    spilled spaghetti sauce on that
                    white blouse —

                    It looked bad - she rubbed and rubbed —
                        she got stain remover —

                When we sin the same way habitually
                    it becomes a vice —
                    It can become more and more
                        grave as we give into satan
                        in a sin more and more —

                Sing: Choose Life


Psalm 1: 1-2, 3, 4, 6

How blessed is anyone who rejects the advice of the wicked
and does not take a stand in the path that sinners tread,
nor a seat in company with cynics,
but who delights in the law of Yahweh
and murmurs his law day and night.

Such a one is like a tree planted near streams;
it bears fruit in season
and its leaves never wither,
and every project succeeds.
How different the wicked, how different!

Just like chaff blown around by the wind

For Yahweh watches over the path of the upright,
but the path of the wicked is doomed.


Luke 9: 22-25

He said, 'The Son of man is destined to suffer grievously, to be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes and to be put to death, and to be raised up on the third day.'

Then, speaking to all, he said, 'If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself and take up his cross every day and follow me. Anyone who wants to save his life will lose it; but anyone who loses his life for my sake, will save it. What benefit is it to anyone to win the whole world and forfeit or lose his very self?


                R. God rewards virtue —

                We should live in truth and justice —
                    satan deceives and lies —
                    Jesus is the way, the truth and the

                We are to love God with our whole
                    heart, our whole soul, our
                    whole being —

                God calls us to love
                We can respond to His call or not —
                    we have a free will —

                We want our vocation to be so
                    important to us —
                    All of us live a vocation —
                        we are to love God in that
                        vocation - above all things —
                        make a commitment to serve
                            Him as He deserves in
                            our vocation —
                        This commitment is serious
                            to God —

                Jesus tells His Apostles He will suffer —

                If we follow in His footsteps we will
                    suffer too —

                How foolish to determine our decisions
                    by if we suffer or not —

                What determines our actions is God's will —
                We want to serve God in our vocation as He
                    calls us —

                Because of the wounded human nature —
                    others make us suffer — we suffer
                    with our own imperfections —
                    We cannot lock ourselves in a box
                        and say — now we won't suffer —

                    Opposing God's will is the greatest
                        suffering — we distance ourselves
                        from God — we take control and
                        We decide what we will and won't do —

                God showed us Jesus did the Father's
                    will to His death on the cross

                Mary did the Father's will —

                Adam and Eve did their own will and
                    there were consequences —
                    Look how we suffer today because
                        of their willfulness —

                    They brought disorder into an
                        orderly world created by God —
                        because they wanted to do it
                        their way —

                The Blue Books teach us about obedience
                    to God's will — if we suffer or not —

                Fr. Carter loved the second Blue Book in
                    discerning it cover to cover —
                    he called it a book of 'surrender' —

                The next year on March 1, 1995  —
                    the rosary is in the Red Rosary book —
                    when Mary appeared and I did this
                    rosary transcribed from a tape —
                    they were banging and banging in
                    the chapel at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center

Sorrowful Mysteries    


The Agony in the Garden

  1. Jesus: Surrender! Surrender to Me as I surrendered to the Father in the Garden. I said to My Father, "Nevertheless, let your will be done, not mine." (Lk 22:42) As you are in your hearts troubled and anxious, I am there ever present to comfort you, to give you My peace. Let go, let go, let go! I am forever with you at every second, at every moment. I do not go! I forever remain in your hearts. Let go! As you live, so do I live in you!

  2. Jesus: I knelt in the Garden in such agony! I saw before Me all that I would undergo, all the beatings, all the scourging. I knew the Father's Will. I complied with the Father's Will as I ask you to surrender totally to Me. Let go! Focus on Me! Do not focus on those things that are parading in your mind, but release your mind to the mysteries of heaven, to My Passion and My death!

  3. Jesus: And My faithful ones, who came to comfort Me-they slept!

  4. Jesus: Indifference! Ingratitude! Neglect! I saw before Me all those who would neglect Me and treat Me with indifference. How My Heart ached with pain to see the souls that I loved so dearly filled with such nonsense!

  5. Jesus: My Heart, an endless furnace of divine love, of divine life, beating and burning for love of precious souls and they do not see! They have closed their eyes and plugged up their ears and I wait and long to be ever close to them! Spread My love throughout this world. You will be met with resistance on all sides. But I beg you this day to listen to My cry. I cry out to you to stand firm. I am calling you to stand up against the world.

  6. Jesus: As one crying in the wilderness, prepare the way of the Lord. I cry out to you to go to the highways and byways. Shout from the rooftops that I am Lord and that I am in your midst this day. Prepare Me a way, for I am coming!

  7. Jesus: I saw before Me all the souls that would be lost to eternal damnation despite all My sufferings. I call out to you this day to harken to My pleading to be about this world spreading My love. There are souls that are at stake, depending upon what you do with your lives. Will you spread My love? Will you be My mouthpiece to this world? I call out to you. You must stand strong and pray to the Spirit for He transforms you from fear to fearlessness. You are My apostles to go into this world and spread the love of My Most Sacred Heart!

  8. Jesus: As I knelt in the Garden, as I suffered so many agonies in My Heart, I was comforted by the love that you show to Me this day.

  9. 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. Jesus: The world is blind and deaf! They have plugged up their ears and covered their eyes. You must go into this world. You must stand strong. You have a message of My love to give. I beg you to give this message to the world that is in much pain, that has covered its eyes and plugged up its ears. I beg you to spread this love in every corner of this world this day. You are apostles that I send into this world.

Song between decades: 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.



Jesus Is Scourged at the Pillar

  1. Jesus: The blood that I shed when I was scourged was blood red! My Heart, which beats out of endless love for you, is a Heart that is red, beating with a burning fire for love of you. I call out to you to draw yourselves ever closer to My Heart for I am waiting and longing and thirsting for your love. Let go of the little distractions you have this day that keep you from increased union with Me. Release yourself and be totally alone in deep union with Me. See only Me. Let go. Release yourselves! I am here with You!

  2. Jesus: Totally focus on Me!

  3. Jesus: Release yourself from all the distractions in your heart. Be alone in deep union with Me!

  4. Jesus: Just as I shed My blood for you as they scourged Me, My Heart cries this day in endless love.

  5. Jesus: See them as they beat Me at the pillar. Hear the blows! This is the love that I have for you. This day will you be alone with Me and totally focus on only Me? Let yourself go. Be in a room where we are together in close union.

  6. Jesus: And our hearts beat so closely, as one!

  7. Hail Mary ...

  8. Jesus: See Me at the pillar! See Me as I stand with the deepest love for all souls.

  9. Song: Come unto Me all who are weary and find rest for your souls. Come unto Me, all who are burdened. I will comfort you.
    Jesus: I am with you in deep union despite the distractions and all that goes on around you. I am so closely connected with you! Your concentration on Me is important to your union with Me. Focus totally on My beating Heart and the love that I have for you. My Heart beat with deep love as I stood at the pillar and bled dark red blood.

  10. Jesus: It is this blood I shed for you, this blood I gave for you, that I ask you to focus on this day. Think of what it is like to shed your blood for another person. Would you shed your blood for another person? I shed My blood for you. In meditating on this blood that I shed, you will realize more and more the immensity of My love.

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love…



Jesus Is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

  1. Jesus: I come to talk to you to tell you the desires of My Heart. As people are blind and do not see, I talk to you this day and ask you to focus on Me and to know that I am truly with you. As you breathe and as your heart beats, I am ever present and within you. I am here present with you. I am the Almighty God! My love I outpour to you. My grace I give to you.

  2. Jesus: I am the Almighty God! I am forever present. It is in your suffering that you are strengthened. I ask you to focus on the crown of thorns they placed on My head. As the blood ran down the sides of My face, think of how this felt! As I sat wounded, My body covered with deep wounds and bleeding, the blood ran into My eyes and into My ears. This is the blood that I shed for you.

  3. Jesus: Put yourself there as I sit. Feel as they spit on Me! Feel as they poke at Me! Think of how you would feel to be treated the way they treated Me! Put yourself on the chair and go through My sufferings with Me.

  4. Jesus: Feel your head as it pounds from the thorns! Feel the blood as it runs on your body! Feel the gashes that burn so deeply under the cloak! Feel the spit as it hits your face! This is the love that I have for you!

  5. Jesus: I ask you to be My soldiers, to go out into this world. They persecuted Me. They whipped Me. They crowned Me with thorns and they put Me to death. I loved those who treated Me so violently. I ask you this day to focus entirely on Me. If the earth falls down around you, interiorly the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are forever within your breast with such love.

  6. Jesus: No person can ever take away your union within with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Your union forever and ever and ever in eternity depends upon the union you have with God here.

  7. Jesus: I call you to sainthood! I call you to holiness! As I suffered this spit that hit My face and body, I call you to suffer with Me all the persecution that you may receive. For in this persecution I am totally present at every second. As your heart beats, as you breathe every breath, I never leave you! If the earth shakes around you, if it rocks and the floor cracks, you will sit steadfast for I never leave you. Hear the small, gentle voice within your heart as it calls to you, "I love you, I love you, I love you!"

  8. Jesus: My Heart is bleeding from the indifference I receive in this world. I call out to you to be strong soldiers. You must focus on Me and this interior committedness to Me.

  9. Hail Mary ...

  10. Song: Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne. His regal scepter knows no bounds. All kingdoms are His own. All Christians come and sing to Him who died for Thee. And hail Him as our Savior King for all eternity.

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love…



Jesus Carries His Cross Up Calvary

  1. Jesus: Hear the still, small voice as it says so gently inside: "I love you, I love you, I love you!"

  2. Jesus: I ask you to carry your crosses as I carried Mine. The cross was so heavy I could scarcely move. I fell under its weight. I ask you to accept your crosses willingly. It is in accepting these crosses that you will be strengthened for I provide everything you need. Your lessons I teach you with the greatest love. Your crosses I give you out of great love for you. It is in these crosses that you receive new life, new life in Me! Accept all that I give you!

  3. Jesus: As I walked with My cross on My back, I peered into the beloved eyes of My dear Mother. Her face was reddened! The tears from her eyes! I could see the sufferings deep within far more than the features of her face. How My Heart was torn to see My beloved Mother, whom I love so much, riddled with such suffering!

  4. Jesus: I watch you, My child. I am forever with you! I know all the desires, the sufferings, of your heart. It is in your sufferings, your acceptance of your sufferings, that you give Me such great love.

  5. Jesus: How do you love Me, child? You love Me through holiness, through loving your brothers. Always love! I loved those who persecuted Me. You must always love! Focus on the love I have for you and hear the still, small voice as it whispers within your heart: "I love you, I love you, I love you!"

  6. Jesus: You are My beloved ones. You I love. You I want closer union with. You, you, My precious loved ones!

  7. Jesus: Carry the crosses that I give to you with great joy, for they are given to you with My great love. It is in carrying these crosses that you will receive new life in Me.

  8. Jesus: I was crowned with thorns! I was beaten over My entire body! I was always at peace. Remain at peace for you know the immense love that I have for you. I never leave you.

  9. Jesus: It is in following the Father's Will and living in His Will as a little child that you will have peace, joy and true happiness.

  10. Jesus: My dear soldiers, you are being strengthened for the days ahead. I am totally with you and present. All that you undergo I am allowing. I ask you to accept each and every suffering that I give you as a gift from Me to you, given out of great love! It is in these sufferings that you will be drawn ever closer to My Most Sacred Heart.

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love...)



Jesus Dies on the Cross

  1. Jesus: I hung for three agonizing hours to My death on the cross! Put yourself on the cross. Your hands nailed, your feet nailed to the cross! Your body covered with wounds! Put yourself there!

  2. Jesus: It is in meditating on My passion that you will know of My immense love.

  3. Jesus: I truly hung there to My death!

  4. Jesus: I accepted death on the cross in compliance with My Father's Will and in great love for you.

  5. Song: 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.

  6. Jesus: This is the love that I have for you this day. I ask you to put the world aside. Focus on loving one another. Focus on Me! I fill you with this immense love. Hear the cry of the voice inside: "I love you, I love you." Do not be angry with those around you. It is your committedness to Me, committedness to this union with Me, to making Me the center of your every thought, to letting Me live in you, through you and with you, and at every second to totally surrender, that allows Me to operate in you. It is no longer you who live, but I who live in you!

  7. Jesus: You are My chosen ones, to whom I give My Heart!

  8. Jesus: My Heart was pierced with a lance and what poured out was the abounding love from My Heart, blood and water for your salvation!

  9. Jesus: It is up to you to let go! Always love! I loved those who persecuted Me. I did not hold grudges. I loved. There is no division in love. There is always unity in love. You must love all! I loved those who put Me to death! I surrendered always to the Father's Will. Anything that happens to you this day I am allowing! Accept what I am giving to you today and love it as coming from Me.

  10. Jesus: Among the thorns there will be a bed of roses. Come to My bed of roses!

Song after the last decade: I come to you with greatest love…

  End of March 1, 1995


                R. We can be filled like a clogged vessel —
                    we have vessels in the body —
                    It hurts the pumping system —
                    We can be clogged in our bodies —
                        we need to have our bodies
                        working —

                We understand how water is important
                    to keep us hydrated —

                God gives us a sharing in His life in
                    baptism —
                    we can stay in the state of grace
                        and the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
                        dwell in us in a special way when we
                        are baptized and in the state of grace —

                Grace is His life in us —

                God wants us to love and to work as one —
                    to see the whole world as our
                    brothers —

                Jesus died for all of us —

                We are bound to love our neighbors —
                To have hearts of love —

                We must ask God to help us to be pure
                    of heart — so we get rid of
                    our sins of unloving ways
                    bad habits and selfishness toward
                    our neighbor —


Psalm 123: 2-3

Just as the eyes of slaves are on their masters' hand,
or the eyes of a slave-girl on the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes are on Yahweh our God,
for him to take pity on us.
Have pity on us, Yahweh, have pity,
for we have had our full share of scorn,


                R. Jesus is our Savior

                God is holy —
                So, thus, we are to be holy —


Matthew 22: 36-40

'Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?' Jesus said to him, 'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.'


                R. We are not to lie — we are not to cheat —


Leviticus 19: 1-2, 11-18

Moral and religious regulations

Yahweh spoke to Moses and said:
‘Speak to the whole community of Israelites and say:
    "Be holy, for I, Yahweh your God, am holy.

You will not steal, nor deal deceitfully or fraudulently with your fellow–citizen. You will not swear by my name with intent to deceive and thus profane the name of your God. I am Yahweh. You will not exploit or rob your fellow. You will not keep back the labourer’s wage until next morning. You will not curse the dumb or put an obstacle in the way of the blind, but will fear your God. I am Yahweh.

"You will not be unjust in administering justice. You will neither be partial to the poor nor overawed by the great, but will administer justice to your fellow–citizen justly. You will not go about slandering your own family, nor will you put your neighbour’s life in jeopardy. I am Yahweh. You will not harbour hatred for your brother. You will reprove your fellow–countryman firmly and thus avoid burdening yourself with a sin. You will not exact vengeance on, or bear any sort of grudge against, the members of your race, but will love your neighbour as yourself. I am Yahweh.


Psalm 19: 8-10, 14

The precepts of Yahweh are honest, 
    joy for the heart; 
the commandment of Yahweh is pure, 
    light for the eyes. 

The fear of Yahweh is pure, 
    lasting for ever; 
the judgements of Yahweh are true, 
    upright, every one, 

more desirable than gold, 
    even than the finest gold; 
his words are sweeter than honey, 
    that drips from the comb.

May the words of my mouth always find favour, 
    and the whispering of my heart, 
in your presence, Yahweh, 
    my rock, my redeemer.


Matthew 25: 31-46

The Last Judgement

‘When the Son of man comes in his glory, escorted by all the angels, then he will take his seat on his throne of glory. All nations will be assembled before him and he will separate people one from another as the shepherd separates sheep from goats. He will place the sheep on his right hand and the goats on his left. Then the King will say to those on his right hand, "Come, you whom my Father has blessed, take as your heritage the kingdom prepared for you since the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you made me welcome, lacking clothes and you clothed me, sick and you visited me, in prison and you came to see me." Then the upright will say to him in reply, "Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and make you welcome, lacking clothes and clothe you? When did we find you sick or in prison and go to see you?" And the King will answer, "In truth I tell you, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me." Then he will say to those on his left hand, "Go away from me, with your curse upon you, to the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you never gave me food, I was thirsty and you never gave me anything to drink, I was a stranger and you never made me welcome, lacking clothes and you never clothed me, sick and in prison and you never visited me." Then it will be their turn to ask, "Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty, a stranger or lacking clothes, sick or in prison, and did not come to your help?" Then he will answer, "In truth I tell you, in so far as you neglected to do this to one of the least of these, you neglected to do it to me." And they will go away to eternal punishment, and the upright to eternal life.’


                "As you did it...or did not do
                    it - to the least of these
                    my brothers and sisters —
                    you did it - or did not do it -
                    to Me"


Isaiah 55: 10-11

For, as the rain and the snow
    come down from the sky
and do not return
    before having watered the earth,
fertilising it and making it germinate
to provide seed for the sower
    and food to eat,
so it is with the word
    that goes from my mouth:
it will not return to me unfulfilled
or before having carried out
    my good pleasure
and having achieved
     what it was sent to do.
