The church needs to have the stucco replaced

and also the community building.

It is about $38,000 to repair it.

People pray in the church 24 hours a day.

We have prayed in there for 11 years.

The archdiocese gave the church to us

for this purpose for a small price.

Eve of My handmaids and servants

                Dear Jesus

                    help me —
                    there is no way anything can
                    be resolved without You


                My life I give —

                I died in love for you

                Reparation for Sin —

                A person controlling against
                    God's will is doing just
                    that —

                Like Eve in the garden —
                    they are rebellious and want
                    their own will —

                A person can enforce their behavior
                    by two means —
                    both are controlling, force



                I SPEAK of UNJUSTIFIED ANGER

                A person who is angry and never
                    expressed their anger is like
                    a boiling pot —
                    what is in them is anger

                They can actively act out anger to force
                    others to let them dominate
                    and they force others - through
                    anger to accept their behavior

                A passive-aggressive behavior is
                    a force, by a person who is
                    angry and hid their anger and
                    does not know how to act it

                    You were created to love

                    Anger is a force — an energy

                A passive-aggressive person
                provokes others to make them
                    angry so they will act
                    out their anger for them —

                Then they walk away, lie to themselves,
                    and say
                    "Oh look at them out of

                It is so horrendous because like
                    loving ways lead to virtue —
                    these cycles of passive-
                    aggressive behavior become
                    habits that a person's face —
                    angry looks and actions can be
                    triggers to the victim to get
                    this cycle to happen quickly and
                    easily for the angry person
                    to get relief through their
                    passive-aggressive ways —

                It seems sick to me to write so much
                    about how satan acts in unloving
                    ways to control situations —
                    in sneaky ways that destroys
                    relationships, homes, children's

                While guilt and anger is acted out
                    in this hidden way —

                Sunday and Saturday are days when
                    people attend Sunday Mass —

                A person can call themselves holy and
                    provoke others on Saturday and Sunday
                    when the 3rd commandment
                    commands to keep holy the
                    Sabbath Day

                I died for you

                I want you to be holy on Sunday —

                but the devil can work in families,
                    churches, in prayer, at Mass
                    on Sundays and Saturdays
                    when you are to keep holy the
                    Sabbath Day —

                Going to Mass — staying united to
                    Masses can help bring down
                    great grace for the world —

                The devil presses down on people to
                    get them angry on Saturdays
                    and Sundays when all these
                    Masses are going on around
                    the world —

                Instead of bringing unity and love to
                    the body of Christ — the person
                    becomes self-focused — seeing
                    themselves as a victim by some
                    other person — to act out their
                    hidden stuffed anger and the
                    devil has tempted them so much —
                    instead of Sundays, Saturdays,
                    retreats, prayer services being
                    times to love God and others — they
                    have a negative energy — like
                    an arrow ready to stick into somebody
                    for their anger, stuffed and deep to the

                They can have generations of stuffed
                    anger —

                They could have been taught to be
                    disharmonious by their parents —
                    perfectionist who were always
                    told they never did it right —
                    this is horrendous to a little
                    child - who is learning about
                    giving and taking and love

                Ask yourself why over 1/2 of the world
                    is divorced

                Religious Orders are almost gone at
                    a big rate —

                Relationship is love
                Relationship is giving and taking

                When some children were being
                    blessed and loved by mom and dad
                    and learning to give and

                Others were learning
                    the families unspoken Sunday rule

                Others learned from dysfunctional or
                    alcoholic parents - that there
                    is no real fun —
                    weekends, which can cause
                    depression on Thursday in anticipation
                    of the adult unpredictable behavior —
                    weekends are times of suffering for

                Selfishness played out by parents
                    wanting for themselves —
                    never learning about the rest
                    of the family and their needs —

                People who have this dysfunction —
                    dad controls
                    mom kisses his feet or
                    visa versa
                    learn these unspoken rules before
                        they can talk

                Men can be taught to run the show —
                Women dance to their commands —

                What happens why
                    religious, marriages fail —
                    is in these situations

                    the unspoken rule is — "a woman
                        never gets before a man"

                    The men, as babies learn men
                        are in charge and if a woman,
                        a teacher even gets up there
                        they have a problem with this —

                Women are taught in dysfunctional
                    families — to tell the men they
                    know whose in charge in
                    unspoken ways —
                    little girls are taught by men in
                        these families - men rule —
                        women don't get in their
                        way —

                What happens in business when a woman
                    is in charge and men are under —
                    other women help dominant
                    men throw over the structure
                    for their unspoken rules of
                    "women never are in charge"
                    "men belong in charge"

                Structure is structure —
                    who is in charge according
                    to God's will

                    Not your unspoken rules

                What about Mary's role in the Church?

                Mary is the only human creature
                    conceived without original sin —

                Pope John Paul II did a lot to get
                    Mary to be recognized in her role —

                Undoing these unspoken rules that are
                    wrong depend on a person's
                    willingness to want God's will —
                    to want peace —
                    to live in love —

                A person who is full of unjust anger, combat
                    generations past is not acting
                    like Jesus —

                The Blue Books tell us about love —
                The Blue Books tell us about intimacy —

                Jesus has a Heart on fire with love —
                Jesus has given us the Shepherds of Christ to bring
                    this great era of love —

                Jesus has always appeared to me with
                    a burning Heart —

                In 1991, December 17th — 5 years before
                    Our Lady appeared at Clearwater —
                    Jesus showed me His Heart on fire —
                    like an open pot-bellied stove —
                    then he said —

                    "I didn't know what that Heart
                        would do to lead so many to
                        His Sacred Heart" —

                From nothing - the Shepherds of Christ Movement
                    came — messages given to Fr. Carter and
                    to me

                Fr. Carter spent long hours discerning
                    the Blue Books, the Mass Book
                    so it could help bring this
                    Reign of the Sacred Heart and
                    Triumph of Mary's Immaculate
                    Heart —

                God shows us disease

                We are all going to die

                Jesus shows us the lepers in the Bible —

                For 18 years I have had visions about the
                    Heart of Jesus

                The love Jesus has for men is beyond our
                    comprehension — He constantly reveals
                    His love to us in our relationships —
                    As we grow day by day to learn to
                        be in relationship with Father, Son
                        and Holy Spirit, the Blessed Mother, the
                        saints, and each other

                Those caught in these unspoken rules —
                    who have acted out anger,
                    passively provoking others or
                    actively trying to force their
                    dysfunctional behavior on others
                    learn to lie to themselves —

                It is like a boiling pot that fills and
                    just releases anger

                Where one is commissioned in baptism
                    to spread the Good News
                    to be joyful in the Spirit of
                        God living in our graced

                Those locked in anger are like
                    the wraps in the tomb —
                    enslaved to satan's fallacious
                    reasoning —
                    giving into vices —
                    their whole lives are lived to
                    cover-up the truth about
                    their lack of love and
                    anger and try to
                    force their behavior, disharmony —
                    control, manipulation on others —
                    They are locked in a tomb of their
                    own making — trying to enforce
                    their unspoken, dysfunctional
                    rules learned on others —

                Instead of realizing our whole life
                    is death/resurrection in the
                    pattern of Jesus — they are stuck —
                    stuck, stuck in pride — like
                    Eve in the garden who wanted to
                    be equal to God and disobeyed God

                A person living 50 years projecting
                    their anger on others has learned
                    habits - vices - they give into while
                    a person - looking at themselves —
                    handling their disappointments and
                    problems daily is living in the moment —

                A person with stuffed anger is always
                    trying to figure out how to feel
                    better, but because of pride can
                    never admit — mom, dad anything
                    in their life was imperfect —
                    most of all them — they see themselves
                    as perfect and want others living
                    in their familiar ways

                    In a book "Your Inner Child
                of the Past
by W. Hugh Missildine, M.D  it says 

p. 24

Our Past-Colored Glasses

    ...In our  adult lives the "child of the past" is constantly trying to make us live as we lived "at home" in childhood. Due to this influence, we keep twisting our present circumstances and relationships to resemble those we knew in the past. It is not much different in some respects from twisting, curling and rearranging the bedclothes in a certain way as we try to fall asleep in that individual way which each of us has. In this manner we get the "security of the familiar" that we knew as children. While the circumstances and relationships of our early years may not have been entirely comfortable, we learned about life and the world at large in this special childhood setting. We learned to adjust ourselves to this special emotional atmosphere and to call it "reality." As adults we tend to continue to see things in terms of the "reality" of this early family setting.

p. 22

        What Kind of a Parent
        Are You to Yourself

    In unraveling a personal difficulty, ask yourself, "What kind of a parent am I being to myself? Am I treating myself with belittling scorn and disrespect? Am I punishing myself? Am I indulging myself? Am I expecting and demanding too much of myself? Am I treating myself the same way my parents treated me in such situations?"...

        p. 51

    Emotionally, we grow like the layers of an onion. Each day, as Whitman puts it, "becomes part" of us. The struggles and longings of our childhood and adolescence will always remain deep within us. It takes time to get used to the idea that these old feelings and struggles are not "over and done with" and that the core of childhood lives on, exerting its influence...

        p. 23

    ...Many people mistakenly believe that all childhood feelings are bound to be troublemaking. Actually, the "child of the past" participates in everything we do as adults -- in our pleasures as well as our difficulties. When we can recognize these feelings as stemming from childhood, we have made a big step forward.

Genesis 2: 24

This is why a man leaves his father and mother and becomes attached to his wife, and they become one flesh.  

                CLEAR  WATER

                Water is necessary for life —


John 4: 5-42

On the way he came to the Samaritan town called Sychar near the land that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Jacob’s well was there and Jesus, tired by the journey, sat down by the well. It was about the sixth hour. When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, ‘Give me something to drink.’ His disciples had gone into the town to buy food. The Samaritan woman said to him, ‘You are a Jew. How is it that you ask me, a Samaritan, for something to drink?’—Jews, of course, do not associate with Samaritans. Jesus replied to her:

    If you only knew what God is offering
    and who it is that is saying to you,
    ‘Give me something to drink,’
    you would have been the one to ask,
    and he would have given you living water.

    ‘You have no bucket, sir,’ she answered, ‘and the well is deep: how do you get this living water? Are you a greater man than our father Jacob, who gave us this well and drank from it himself with his sons and his cattle?’ Jesus replied:

    Whoever drinks this water
    will be thirsty again;
    but no one who drinks the water
        that I shall give
    will ever be thirsty again:
    the water that I shall give
    will become a spring of water within,
        welling up for eternal life.

    ‘Sir,’ said the woman, ‘give me some of that water, so that I may never be thirsty or come here again to draw water.’ ‘Go and call your husband,’ said Jesus to her, ‘and come back here.’ The woman answered, ‘I have no husband.’ Jesus said to her, ‘You are right to say, "I have no husband"; for although you have had five, the one you now have is not your husband. You spoke the truth there.’ ‘I see you are a prophet, sir,’ said the woman. ‘Our fathers worshipped on this mountain, though you say that Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.’ Jesus said:

    Believe me, woman, the hour is coming
    when you will worship the Father
    neither on this mountain
        nor in Jerusalem.
    You worship what you do not know;
    we worship what we do know;
    for salvation comes from the Jews.
    But the hour is coming—
        indeed is already here—
    when true worshippers
        will worship the Father
            in spirit and truth:
    that is the kind of worshipper
    the Father seeks.
    God is spirit,
    and those who worship
    must worship in spirit and truth.

    The woman said to him, ‘I know that Messiah—that is, Christ—is coming; and when he comes he will explain everything.’ Jesus said, ‘That is who I am, I who speak to you.’

    At this point his disciples returned and were surprised to find him speaking to a woman, though none of them asked, ‘What do you want from her?’ or, ‘What are you talking to her about?’ The woman put down her water jar and hurried back to the town to tell the people, ‘Come and see a man who has told me everything I have done; could this be the Christ?’ This brought people out of the town and they made their way towards him.

    Meanwhile, the disciples were urging him, ‘Rabbi, do have something to eat’; but he said, ‘I have food to eat that you do not know about.’ So the disciples said to one another, ‘Has someone brought him food?’ But Jesus said:

    My food
    is to do the will of the one who sent me,
    and to complete his work.
    Do you not have a saying:
    Four months and then the harvest?
    Well, I tell you,
    look around you, look at the fields;
    already they are white,
        ready for harvest!
    Already the reaper
        is being paid his wages,
    already he is bringing in the grain
        for eternal life,
    so that sower and reaper
        can rejoice together.
    For here the proverb holds true:
    one sows, another reaps;
    I sent you to reap
    a harvest you have not laboured for.
    Others have laboured for it;
    and you have come
        into the rewards of their labour.

    Many Samaritans of that town believed in him on the strength of the woman’s words of testimony, ‘He told me everything I have done.’ So, when the Samaritans came up to him, they begged him to stay with them. He stayed for two days, and many more came to believe on the strength of the words he spoke to them; and they said to the woman, ‘Now we believe no longer because of what you told us; we have heard him ourselves and we know that he is indeed the Saviour of the world.’

3. Ruptured ACL Ligament and PCL ligament left leg (knee) and damaged meniscus. 3-4 weeks excruciating pain. MRI showed damaged ligaments - went to do surgery and scopes revealed no damage other than meniscus injury. Day before surgery we came here to pray for healing. Wife anointed knee with Jesus water.

5. I just wanted to tell you we have had so many prayers answered most especially since we have had the image statue in our home a few months ago. Prayers being miraculously answered for our children & grandchildren, our daughter's heart has literally almost healed ... she is also pregnant and that is also a miracle that she carried the baby this far, she is so thankful and also her cardiologist can't figure out how she is doing so well, and even agreed with her it must be prayers being said for her. He also told her in her 4th month to abort the baby, maybe he will have a conversion, we hope. Others in my family have changed since we got the statue. They are more understanding and patient and love being a Catholic more than ever before ...We thank Jesus, Mary, Rita and you all. Praise all of heaven. We are also so eager to have many more prayers answered. We are giving our married children a 10 inch statue each for their homes and red prayer manual if they would also like to say the prayers if they so choose to. The statue we know will help them with many graces as they pray before it as it has helped us in our home and lives. Love you all.  8/3/2007

6. Pregnancy. (A long note about how a woman got pregnant after she came to the Virgin Mary Building.) 3/21/2008

7. My mother was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in April 2005. She received the Jesus water of Clearwater that my brother brought to El Salvador.

12. A man from South Carolina came to thank Jesus and Mary for his healing. His brother sent him Jesus' water when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Three doctors told him there was nothing they could do for him. He started using Jesus' water and started feeling better (He could hardly walk, he was using a wheelchair a lot). He went back to the doctor and tests showed no more cancer — gone! The doctor told him he never saw this happen before. He is around 70 years old and walks and feels normal.   2006

13. A lady from Egypt wrote asking St. Mary for a baby for 3 years. She helped me and now I have a little daughter. Her name is Mariam after St. Mary name by my language. Thank God and Thank St. Mary. She always remembers me. - Egypt  10/25/2006

14. This woman filled out a healing form at the site. I am so blessed by the Blessed Mother that she has been there for me on more than several occasions. She performed a miracle on all occasions, one in particular was cancer of the right leg. The doctors wanted to cut my leg off the cancer was in the bone. When I returned to New York and went to a plastic surgeon he saw the cat scan and said my chances weren't good. When he did the surgery the cancer was not in the bone. It was superficial.  9/2/2006

15. Stroke. Healed August 2006. 9/2/2006

16. A year ago he went to Orlando for a test on his prostate. It was positive. He came here in May and got some Jesus water out of the trough. He went back to the doctor and he was healed. - Venezuela  8/25/2006

17. Infertility. Conceived and gave birth exactly 9 months after our first visit to Clearwater in August 2000. Our son was born exactly 9 months after our visit (May 20, 2001). I've had surgeries on both ovaries in 1998 and had very little chance of conceiving. Mother Mary gave us our blessing and wish. 7/21/2006

18. Peter was operated on for cancer he had for 10 years on his leg and because the wound was so big, they had to take some skin from another part of his leg to be able to fix it but it did split. So Monday the doctor said that another surgery was needed but thanks to Jesus water on Wednesday on that same week he was healed. - Argentina   7/2/2006

19. Cancer of the lungs. A friend of ours who we visit from Canada. He told us of his illness and we came and prayed at the Virgin Mary's appearance on March 28, 2006. He had Jesus' water put on him the night before his surgery. His surgery was on March 31 and the cancer was gone. Thank you for your blessings.  4/2/2006

21. Neuropathy. He had gotten Jesus water a few days ago and went to the doctor yesterday.  3/15/2006

22. Pregnancy. I could not become pregnant. I came here to ask Mary to extend her hands on me, to be able to have a child. The miracle happened. I did not know that other women had become pregnant by asking Mary. My son is 3 years old. I am convinced that he is called to be special in his life, he has a mission. When she went to see the doctor, specialists, they said forget it, she couldn't have a baby, and she went to many different ones. Came here to pray and became pregnant. All the doctors never understood what had happened. They said he is a miracle child. 3/8/2006

23. Pregnancy. Became pregnant of twin girls after we prayed in 2005 and even have a statue of the Virgin Mary in our yard. After 15 years of concubinage Virgin Mary finally blessed us. Thanks. Thanks. Thanks. Jesus water was used to help conceive. 2/2/2006

24. A woman came in today from New York and said she was here last March (2005) and got the Jesus water. Her cousin who was very healthy and had just retired at age 60 suffered a massive stroke. He was taken to the best neurological hospital in New York and the doctors said he had no chance of recovery. He had a blood clot at the base of his brain stem. He was in intensive care and the woman with the other family members were visiting him and she put Jesus water on him and they prayed over him, while he was laying in bed in a fetal position unable to talk was paralyzed. After she had left (only 30 minutes of visitation in Intensive Care) the woman received a call from her cousin's wife saying the man had sat up in bed after they left and was miraculously healed. He is back at home now. The doctors came in and said this was a miracle. This was 2 months ago.  1/24/2006

25. Dermatomyositis (a form of Muscular Dystrophy). I was given 6 months to live. I was really depressed ready to give up when, while being in town for my girlfriends niece's Christmas Party. I heard it on the news. (December 17, 1996) Decided why not let's go, when I got here I was not expecting to see what I saw. I couldn't believe what I saw. Within an hour I put the cane down, slowly but surely got better enough where I wasn't paralyzed or dead. Thank you Jesus and Mary.  12/16/2005

26. Small Bowel Syndrome. Infant acquired surgical intervention at birth. 4 months care at home. Healed completely as of May 2005.    11/24/2005

27. Newborn very sick - 2 lbs. My mother came to visit me. We used to live in the post apartments by Target. I brought my Mother to the Virgin Mary Building in Clearwater and she prayed for my niece, who was in Guatemala. When my Mother returned to Guatemala she took the picture of Virgin Mary and put it in my niece's room. When my niece was born, she needed a tube feeding. She couldn't eat on her own. She was very thin and very sick. Many people told my sister and my mother (including the doctors) that my niece was so sick that she probably would died. Thank to our Lady Virgin Mary, my niece is a healthy gifted 9 year old girl. - Guatemala - Healing was at 6 months old. 11-22-2005

28. My daughter was told she had thyroid cancer, after having one side of the thyroid removed they found the cancer was gone. This had to be due to Mary and Jesus Water and her belief in the Mother and Son.  9/17/2005

29. Virus. He was in Egypt. His relatives came to the site and asked for prayers for healing for him. That same day they were here he was completely healed of his Liver virus. He is a physician.  8/31/2005

30. After waiting about 8 months for the baby to get bigger for the surgery, the doctor checked him and couldn't believe it, but she said, "It just fixed itself." He was 4 months premature and this surgery would have lowered his sperm count significantly and its already been lowered by a double inguinal hernia surgery. 6-14-2005  

31. Burst tube with unexpected pregnancy. Was internal bleeding. Doctor told was miracle, surviving from this kind of operation. She (the mother) had come to the site and prayed to God if this Image (Our Lady of Clearwater) was from God to grant her a miracle. Her daughter who was in Lithuania at the time was in the hospital and the above miracle happened during the 2 hours the mother was praying at the site.  5/4/2005

32. Heart failure. He was not breathing. Jesus water was poured on him while praying. He started breathing again. 4/23/2005

33. When I was pregnant, my baby was sick. My baby born was well. Thanks.  4/18/2005

34. Flu. Both sitting in car, praying rosary both sick of flu. He very sick, not getting better. Both used the water, felt pain leave body, didn't say anything, but after few minutes he said "I feel pain is gone." They drove back to tell us that they were healed. 4/18/2005

35. Asthma. Put Jesus water on neck. Breathing much better. 4/17/2005

36. Severe back pain. Have a bad back from laying brick for years and sometimes I bend over and the pain is severe and it takes at least 3 or 4 or more weeks for it to go away. I put Jesus water on it and it went away in 2 days. Alleluia.  4/16/2005

37. I must admit that some days I forget to wash in the water. But I have felt the same feeling once again a few days ago as I did on March 2nd, the first time I applied it to my knees. On the movie that you took, I am walking on the beach without a cane. I don't know if you noticed. I didn't use the cane yesterday, and I have no pain. I'm still slow at climbing the stairs, but I'm seeing a tremendous improvement. I'll keep a journal, and continue updating you I pray a lot, as I'm applying the medicine. Part of my prayer is "If it be your will." Thank you. I'll be in touch soon. 3/11/2005

38. My husband had a good friend and he was diagnosed with cancer and given less than a few weeks to live. Jesus told me to take him the Jesus water. I never really met him, but I went to the hospital. He was so sick. He bounced up and said I knew it - I will be healed. And he lived over two years longer.

39. Leukemia went into remission February 7, 2003. Her doctor can't believe how well she is doing. She has the worse kind of Leukemia there is and she is doing extremely well. He said this does not happen, so soon, we told him its because of all the prayers, everyone is saying for her. The day after we visited the Blessed Mother Building, her blood count was excellent. Thank you so much. As of 11/3/2004 she is still in remission and doing very well, a happy 10 year old little girl. We are all so thankful for all the prayers from everyone, we truly believe, if we hadn't had our faith and by going to the Virgin Mary building so often, we wouldn't have been so fortunate to have her. Prayer is still the most powerful and healing process. Thank you so much.  11/3/2004

40. Spinal Manangitas. December 16th, 2002 we almost lost our little grandson. He was taken flight for life to Madison where they worked on him for hours. They told us he would either be blind - deaf - brain damage, or he might not walk. Today he is a happy - healthy little boy full of life. Thanks to everyone's prayers to our Blessed Virgin and our heavenly Father, without them we would not have him. Thank you. As of this date November 3, 2004 our little grandson is doing very well, a healthy happy little boy, and so full of life, and without any complications. Our prayers and by going to the Virgin Mary building truly helped this little boy. Thanks to everyone for all their prayers. 11/3/2004

41. After my family visited the Virgin Mary and returned to hospital, I showed no sign of having a stroke. Doctors at hospital said I would not recover.  4/2001


                I could be happy —
                I could be in love with life ...

                God created us to be happy —
                God intends us to be happy
                God intends us to love


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.'


                Our life is hard —

                We must work for this happiness
                    by obeying God's rules

                We can't start out where we
                    are and try to stay there —
                    and think we will be happy


                Our life is lived to
                    get better — not bitter —

                We never want to keep our
                    darkness inside —
                    like old furniture in the
                    We keep running into it



                We say we are sorry to God and others
                    for offenses






                I love You God

                I am sorry I hurt

                I did this and I
                    want to recognize it
                    and make reparation


          At the heart of

              the Fatima

               message is




Tell My People

as given to Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.



Reparation for Sin

Jesus: "My beloved priest-companion, tell My people that the ugly face of sin covers the earth as never before in the history of the human race. My image, which should shine forth brilliantly over the whole earth, is seriously marred by the hideousness of sin. My Father's justice demands reparation. Tell My people to offer their actions in reparation for all the sins whereby the Triune God is so much offended. My Heart cries out for reparation, especially for sins committed against My Eucharistic presence. My Heart hates sin, but loves the sinner. All who are sorry for their sins will find in My Heart overflowing graces of mercy.

"My people should receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation often, even if they have no serious sins to confess. The graces of this Sacrament give powerful graces for the fight against temptation. I am Lord and Master. Please do as I request!"

Reflection: In our determination to avoid sin, let us often recall the terrible sufferings which sin caused Our Loving Savior: the cruel crowning with thorns, the tearing of His sacred flesh by the soldiers' merciless scourging, the heartless hammering of nails through His sacred hands and feet, and all the rest. Who can prayerfully look upon the suffering Christ and not be repulsed by the hideousness of sin?

Prayer: Dear Jesus, in love You died for our sins. Never allow us to forget the terrible price You paid to redeem us from our sins!


Consecration to the Hearts
of Jesus and Mary

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people that I desire all to consecrate themselves to My Sacred Heart and to Mary's Immaculate Heart. Tell them not to just recite words in making the act of consecration, but to realize what they are saying. Consecration to Our Hearts means a total gift of self. It means handing over everything to Me and to My Mother. Consecration means a willingness to surrender completely to Me. In Baptism one is consecrated to Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. But how many fail to live out their consecration! I extend to all the invitation to renew this baptismal consecration through consecration to My Heart and to My Mother's Heart.

"My beloved companion, I have taught you what this consecration means. I have given you great peace, joy, and happiness because you have made this consecration. I have taught you that you are to renew this act of consecration each day, I constantly remind you that you are to pray each day for the grace to more and more live the consecration. I have taught you that your consecration to Me and My Mother means that you constantly surrender yourself to Us and to Our care. I have taught you that the more you surrender yourself to Me, the more I live in you and through you and for you. I have taught you that My great love for you longs to draw you more deeply into My Heart. I have shown you that I wish your Mother Mary to place you there within My Heart, and that the more you dwell within her heart, the more deeply she places you within My Heart. Dwelling within Our Hearts, the Holy Spirit fashions you more and more in My likeness. The Father thus looks upon you with greater favor and takes you more closely to Himself. Tell My people all these wondrous truths. I am Lord and Master, and I desire all to listen to My words!"

Reflection: In the above message, Jesus describes what is involved in living our consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. What beautiful truths He puts before us! We know that the living out of our consecration is not always easy. Sometimes it is very difficult. At all times, and especially in most difficult times, we should remind ourselves how much Jesus and Mary love us, and that living out our consecration is our "thank you," our return of love.

Prayer: Jesus and Mary, help me each day to live my consecration. Help me to concentrate on the present moment. Help me not to race ahead and try to live tomorrow and next week and next month before these times actually arrive. Help me to live the present moment of my consecration in the deepest faith, hope, and love.


Children of Mary

Mary: "My beloved priest-son, how often I have embraced you! How often I have told you how much I love you! How often, at your request, I have held you in my arms as my child. You have told me you realize how helpless you are of yourself, but how strong and secure you feel dwelling in my heart and Jesus' Heart. Your sense of your littleness and helplessness endears you to me all the more. I take you ever more securely to my maternal and Immaculate Heart. Tell all my people of the riches you have found within my heart. Tell them how I place you within my Son's Heart. Tell them that, because of my motherly action, you are now more closely united with Jesus than ever before. Tell my people to come to my heart and draw forth similar riches. Tell all my little ones that Jesus, Who is Lord and Master, bids me to lead all to His Sacred Heart. The more my little ones dwell within my Immaculate Heart, the more I place them within Jesus' Heart. Oh, how I love all my little ones! How I love to bring them to the Heart of Jesus!"

Reflection: Again, let us remind ourselves that we live in the Age of the Two Hearts. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are inseparable. The more we dwell in Mary's heart, the more she places us within Jesus' Heart. Within these Two Hearts, the Holy Spirit fashions us more and more in the likeness of Christ, and the more we become like Christ, the more closely He unites us to the Father.

Prayer: Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us! Sacred Heart of Jesus, we place our trust in You.



"What I say to you in the dark, tell in the day-
light; what you hear in whispers, proclaim
from the housetops."
(Matthew 10:27)


Jesus has Come to Give Us Life

Jesus: "This is the day celebrating My Resurrection (Easter). The day of newness of life. I am Lord and Master. I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Tell My people to come to Me if they wish to experience life in abundance. I want to give all an ever greater share in the life of My Resurrection. Without Me you cannot be happy, nor have peace, nor have real joy. Tell My people to surrender to Me more and more. The more they do so, the more they will experience My love, wisdom, power, peace, joy, happiness, mercy, and goodness. Within My Heart My people will find these riches. I am Lord and Master! Please listen to My words."

Reflection: Through His life, death, and resurrection, Jesus has come to give us life, and to give us this life in abundance.

When we were baptized, we were incorporated into Christ and His Church. When we were baptized, we received the life of sanctifying grace. This life is a created sharing in the life of the Trinity. Truly, we are called to live a God-like existence according to the teaching and example of Jesus! It is our duty and our privilege to develop our life of grace—our Christ-life—through our participation in the Mass, through the reception of the sacraments, through prayer, and through all other good works. Indeed, we are called to love God and neighbor more and more.

What a glorious life has been given to us! In a spirit of thanksgiving, and together with Mary our Mother, let us always strive to know Christ more intimately, to love Him more ardently, and to follow Him more closely, so that He will always bring us to a closer union with the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit.

Prayer: Father, we are profoundly grateful for the life You have given to us through Jesus and in the Holy Spirit. Through the constant intercession of Mary our Mother, we ask for the grace to always be Your worthy sons and daughters.

end of excerpts from Tell My People


                Jesus: In order to love —
                    to know yourself —
                    you must take responsibility
                    how you respond to
                    You must get rid of
                        hidden, unjust

                You can throw your precious
                    days away
                    acting out anger on
                        innocent others
                    (passive or aggressive

                Your strength is spent in
                    hate, bitter
                    ways from the past —
                    you act out and
                    react to, on innocent others
                    when you are full of anger —

                Anger is the enemy of love —

                I am love —

                Living stuck in the
                    ground is not
                    living — reacting —
                    working out old wounds
                    that need to be
                    healed and let go

                You have a drain —

                No energy

                No strength

                A pot of unpredictable
                    anger that boils and you
                    act out
                    1) passively
                    2) actively

                An angry person - doesn't
                    resolve conflicts —
                    doesn't handle problems —
                    they may explode —

                    they tell you —

                    "I did it"

                    Don't talk to me about
                        anything —

                A passive-aggressive person
                    doesn't engage — they are
                    too busy controlling things
                    so nobody sees behind
                    the mask of
                    stuffed - anger

                    tension is always there
                    no connection in the hearts



Act of consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary

"Lord Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock, I consecrate myself to Your most Sacred Heart. From Your pierced Heart the Church was born, the Church You have called me, as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, to serve in a most special way. You reveal Your Heart as a symbol of Your love in all its aspects, including Your most special love for me, whom You have chosen as Your companion in this most important work. Help me to always love You in return. Help me to give myself entirely to You. Help me always to pour out my life in love of God and neighbor! Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You!

"Dear Blessed Virgin Mary, I consecrate myself to your maternal and Immaculate Heart, this Heart which is symbol of your life of love. You are the Mother of my Savior. You are also my Mother. You love me with a most special love as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, a movement created by your Son as a powerful instrument for the renewal of the Church and the world. In a return of love, I give myself entirely to your motherly love and protection. You followed Jesus perfectly. You are His first and perfect disciple. Teach me to imitate you in the putting on of Christ. Be my motherly intercessor so that, through your Immaculate Heart, I may be guided to an ever closer union with the pierced Heart of Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock."



                When one loves —
                    the Spirit of God fills you

                Come Holy Spirit fill our
                    heart with the fire of Your

                How is your dark spots —
                    are you like someone
                    lost in a woods of
                    rattle snakes

                Or are you working on

                    like the lepers were
                        healed by Christ 


                Tell your faults — make a
                    good confession —
                    don't confess your neighbors
                    sins and make yourself holy  

                Confession is to say you
                    are sorry for
                    your sins

                Song: I Am Your Sacred Heart

                Jesus: Some people never
                    handle any problems
                    with others they act
                    out on —
                    they manipulate
                        and punish

                They never resolve a conflict —
                    because of their anger

                We can go to confession and get
                    grace to help us

                To think we are perfect and
                    not admit our sins is
                    dangerous to our soul

                Why are we living?

                To be like Jesus —

                Jesus says

                    I am the way, the truth and the life


Genesis 1: 26-27

God said, ‘Let us make man in our own image, in the likeness of ourselves, and let them be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all the wild animals and all the creatures that creep along the ground.’

    God created man in the image of himself, 
    in the image of God he created him, 
    male and female he created them.
