Excerpt from Response to God's Love, 
  
by Father Edward Carter, S.J.

                                 1

The Mystery of Christ and Christian Existence

   ...In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

    The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ. St. Paul tells us: "I became a minister of this Church through the commission God gave me to preach among you his word in its fullness, that mystery hidden from ages and generations past but now revealed to his holy ones. God has willed to make known to them the glory beyond price which this mystery brings to the Gentiles—the mystery of Christ in you, your hope of glory. This is the Christ we proclaim while we admonish all men and teach them in the full measure of wisdom, hoping to make every man complete in Christ" (Col 1:25-28).

  

                God shows us relationship —
                The Trinity is the most perfect relationship.
                God is love.
                God wants us to know Him, to know His love.
                In knowing God we have a relationship
                    with the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

                Our happiness is found in God.
                God is love.
                God calls us to love Him.
                God calls us to love each other as ourselves.

                Man sinned —
                God gave him all these gifts and
                    Adam and Eve wanted to be Equal to God.
                Cain killed his brother —
                We see lust in the story of the men lying
                    about Susanna.
                We see the sinfulness of man.

                Doing God's will is what Mary and Jesus showed
                    us.

                A passive-aggressive person acts like they
                    will do something and then stalls,
                    makes somebody wait — trying to
                    provoke the other —
                    They attack passively, but their attack
                        is to aggressively hurt another.

                We see Mary's yes.
                We see her purity.
                We see love.
                Jesus although He was beaten He did it for
                    love of us.

                Jesus the Almighty - God —
                    knowing everything —
                    suffered for the sins of men

                What good does it do to go to your death bed doing
                    our actions to 'save face' to people
                    here below —
                    Saying, 'I am perfect, I never sin' —

   

1 John 1: 8-10

If we say, ‘We have no sin,’
we are deceiving ourselves,
and truth has no place in us;
if we acknowledge our sins,
he is trustworthy and upright,
so that he will forgive our sins
and will cleanse us from all evil.
If we say, ‘We have never sinned,’
we make him a liar,
and his word has no place in us.

   

                A person who lies, will cover their lie usually
                    with immense emotional and denial to prove
                    they never lied.

                Lying is deception.

                Jesus says in Revelation there will be no
                    more lies.  

                A person punishing an innocent other is
                    doing this to Jesus.

                Religious are to be living a very pure life
                    of chastity and obedience —
                    In heaven there is perfect —
                        poverty, chastity and obedience.

                Jesus showed us in His death He obeyed
                    the will of the Father —

                In today's readings it says —
                    Isaiah 7: 10-14, 8: 10

   

Isaiah 7: 10-14

Yahweh spoke to Ahaz again and said: 

Ask Yahweh your God for a sign, 
either in the depths of Sheol 
    or in the heights above. 

    But Ahaz said, ‘I will not ask. I will not put Yahweh to the test.’
    He then said: 

    Listen now, House of David: 
    are you not satisfied 
        with trying human patience 
    that you should try 
        my God’s patience too? 
    The Lord will give you a sign in any case: 
    It is this: the young woman is with child 
    and will give birth to a son 
    whom she will call Immanuel.

 

Isaiah 8: 10

Devise plans as you may:
    they will come to nothing!
Make what pronouncements you like;
    For God is with us!'

 

                    "Must we also weary my God"

                    Psalm 40

                    "Sacrifice or oblation you wished not,
                    but ears open to obedience you gave me."

                Mary showed us she obeyed God —
                Mary shows us how to be a handmaid of the Lord.

    

Luke 1: 46-55

And Mary said:

My soul proclaims
    the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
    in God my Saviour;
because he has looked upon
    the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
    all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty
    has done great things for me.
Holy is his name,
and his faithful love extends age after age
    to those who fear him.
He has used the power of his arm,
he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes
    from their thrones
        and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things,
    sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help
    of Israel his servant,
        mindful of his faithful love
—according to the promise
    he made to our ancestors—
of his mercy to Abraham
    and to his descendants for ever.

 

Jeremiah 9: 13-15

but have followed their own stubborn hearts, have followed the Baals as their ancestors taught them.' So Yahweh Sabaoth, the God of Israel, says this, 'Now I shall give this people wormwood to eat and poisoned water to drink. I shall scatter them among nations unknown to their ancestors or to them; and I shall pursue them with the sword until I have annihilated them.'

 

                We are not to lie.

                This Movement exists for truth.

 

John 16: 7-15

Still, I am telling you the truth:
it is for your own good that I am going,
because unless I go,
the Paraclete will not come to you;
but if I go,
I will send him to you.
And when he comes,
he will show the world how wrong it was,
about sin,
and about who was in the right,
and about judgement:
about sin:
in that they refuse to believe in me;
about who was in the right:
in that I am going to the Father
and you will see me no more;
about judgement:
in that the prince of this world
    is already condemned.
I still have many things to say to you
but they would be too much for you
    to bear now.
However, when the Spirit of truth comes
he will lead you to the complete truth,
   since he will not be speaking
of his own accord,
but will say only what he has been told;
and he will reveal to you
   the things to come.
He will glorify me,
since all he reveals to you
will be taken from what is mine.
Everything the Father has is mine;
that is why I said:
all he reveals to you
will be taken from what is mine.

   

                Mary appeared to the children of Fatima, 1917
                    They jailed the children —

                Today I have gotten message after message —
                    when I was at Our Lady of the Holy
                    Spirit Center they kicked us out — September 11, 1995
                    even though Mary was appearing.                   

                Today 17 years later, Our Lord has given
                    me the messages that formed this Movement
                    of almost 15 years.

                The fight was there to block the messages.
                God has used my hand and my mouth
                    delivering these messages —
                    like this one before Mary appeared
                    at Clearwater

    

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

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

                Today we have sent 6,000,000 Priestly
                    Newsletters in over 14 years and we
                    have begun prayer chapters all over
                    the world.

                Mary's image head was destroyed
                    on the first day of the third month
                    March 1, 2004, 4 years ago.

                Now listen to this scripture God told
                    me to note:

   
Ezekiel Chapter 31

In the eleventh year, on the first day of the third month, the word of Yahweh was addressed to me as follows, Son of man, say to Pharaoh king of Egypt and his throng of subjects:

“What can compare with you
    for greatness?
I know: a cedar tree in the Lebanon
with noble branches, dense foliage,
    lofty height.
Its top pierces the clouds.
The waters have made it grow,
    the deep has made it tall,
pouring its rivers round the place
    where it is planted,
sending rivulets to all the wild trees.
This is why its height was greater
    than that of other wild trees,
its branches increased in number,
    its boughs stretched wide,
because of the plentiful waters
    making it grow.
All the birds of heaven
    nested in its branches;
under its boughs all wild animals
    dropped their young;
in its shade sat many, many people.
It was beautiful in its size,
    in the span of its boughs;
for its roots were in plentiful waters.
There was no cedar like it
    in the garden of God,
no cypress had branches such as these,
no plane tree could match its boughs,
no tree in the garden of God
    could rival its beauty.
I had made it so lovely
    with its many branches
that it was the envy of every tree in Eden,
    in the garden of God.

    “Very well, the Lord Yahweh says this:
“Since it has raised itself to its full height, has lifted its top into the clouds, and has grown arrogant about its height, I have handed it over to the prince of the nations, for him to treat as its wickedness deserves; I have rejected it. Foreigners, the most barbarous of nations, have cut it down and deserted it. On the mountains, in all the valleys, lie its branches; its broken boughs are in every ravine throughout the country; everybody in the country has fled its shade and deserted it. On its wreckage perch all the birds of heaven; all the wild animals have advanced on its branches.

    So in future let no tree rear its height beside the waters, none push its top into the clouds, no watered tree stretch its height towards them. For all of them are doomed to death, to the depths of the underworld, with the common run of humanity, with those who sink into oblivion.

    The Lord Yahweh says this: The day it went down to Sheol, I imposed mourning, I closed the deep over it. I stopped its rivers and the plentiful waters dried up; I made Lebanon dark because of it, and all the wild trees wilted because of it. With the noise when it fell I made the nations quake, as I hurled it down to Sheol, with those who sink into oblivion. In the depths of the underworld all the trees of Eden took comfort, the pick of the loveliest trees of the Lebanon, all irrigated by the waters And its offspring among the nations, once living in its shade, went down to Sheol with it, to those who have been slaughtered by the sword.

    Which of the trees of Eden compares with you for glory and greatness? Yet you have been hurled down with the trees of Eden, to the depths of the underworld, among the uncircumcised, and there you lie with those who have been slaughtered by the sword. So much for Pharaoh and all his throng–declares the Lord Yahweh."

    

                At Fatima 70,000 people saw
                    the miracle of the sun on October 13, 1917.

                Now see Our Lady of Clearwater when
                    I did the rosary on the 5ths.

                God has given to us Mary, all pure, our
                    spiritual Mother —
   

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, Jesus. * Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

   

Luke 1: 26-38

In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the House of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. He went in and said to her, ‘Rejoice, you who enjoy God’s favour! The Lord is with you.’ She was deeply disturbed by these words and asked herself what this greeting could mean, but the angel said to her, ‘Mary, do not be afraid; you have won God’s favour. Look! You are to conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you must name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David; he will rule over the House of Jacob for ever and his reign will have no end.’ Mary said to the angel, ‘But how can this come about, since I have no knowledge of man?’ The angel answered, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will cover you with its shadow. And so the child will be holy and will be called Son of God. And I tell you this too: your cousin Elizabeth also, in her old age, has conceived a son, and she whom people called barren is now in her sixth month, for nothing is impossible to God.’ Mary said, ‘You see before you the Lord’s servant, let it happen to me as you have said.’ And the angel left her. 

   

 

                Mary was preserved from any
                    stain of original sin from
                    the first moment of conception.

                Sing: Immaculate Mary

                Mary told Bernadette at Lourdes
                    "I am the Immaculate Conception."

                Since the fall of Adam and Eve, each of us
                    comes into the world bearing the
                    stain of original sin on our souls.

                To Mary God poured forth special graces at the
                    moment of her conception, and she
                    was conceived without original sin.

                The patroness of the United States of
                    America is the Blessed Virgin
                    under the title of the Immaculate Conception.

                I can see why Mary appeared in
                    CLEAR-WATER Florida
                    on the building

                Mary crushes the head of the serpent

  

  

                The Fruits of the Holy Spirit, the 3rd Person of
                    the Holy Trinity and the Spouse of Mary
                    are
                    charity, joy, peace, patience, benignity,
                    goodness, longanimity, mildness, faith,
                    modesty, continence, chastity

                Virtuous acts are to be performed with
                    pleasure and love — delight —
                    satisfaction replaces difficulty
                    in performing these acts

                The gifts of the Holy Spirit are
                    understanding —
                    wisdom —
                    counsel —
                    fortitude —
                    knowledge —
                    piety —
                    fear of the Lord

 

Prayer for the Holy Spirit and His Gifts

Come Holy Spirit, come, come into our hearts, inflame all people with the fire of Your love.

Leader: Send forth Your Spirit and all will be reborn.
All:  And You will renew the face of the earth.

We pray for the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, we ask for perfection in our souls to make us holy, holy souls likened to God.

Dear Holy Spirit, we give ourselves to You soul and body. We ask You to give us the Spirit of Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety, and Fear of the Lord.

 

                We have been given the great gift to love
                    and distribute pictures of the Sacred
                    Heart of Jesus —

                The Heart of Jesus is used to show us
                    His infinite and Divine love.

                December 17, 1991 - 5 years to the day
                    Mary appeared at Clearwater —
                    I was given a vision of Jesus'
                        Heart — on fire — like a
                        pot-bellied stove 

                    I put it on the front of Blue Book II as
                        I saw it —

    

December 17, 1991Picture of Jesus' Heart on fire.

    

His Burning Heart

Messenger:  I was alone in All Saints Church after Mass and Communion, in front of the tabernacle, when I saw the Sacred Heart. It was red around the outside, then a layer of yellow and then the brightest light in the center. I felt heat and it looked like an open furnace.

    I thought about it all day and it instantly gave me peace and warmth in my heart. This is the purpose of these letters—to draw hearts to the ardent on-fire love of Jesus. I received the following message that day:

    "Open your heart to the fire of God's love. He is ablaze in your heart. He wants to dwell in you and love you and others through you. Love God, yourself and one another and experience the fire set aglow in your heart and experience the warmth of His love."

end of writing about December 17, 1991

      

Promises of Our Lord to those devoted to His Sacred Heart: 

  1. I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.

  2. I will establish peace in their homes.

  3. I will comfort them in all their afflictions.

  4. I will be their refuge during life and above all in death.

  5. I will bestow a large blessing on all their undertakings.

  6. Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and the infinite ocean of mercy.

  7. Tepid souls shall grow fervent.

  8. Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection.

  9. I will bless every place where a picture of My Heart shall be set up and honored.

  10. I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.

  11. Those who promote this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be blotted out.

  12. I promise you in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful love will grant to all those who communicate on the first Friday in nine consecutive months the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving their sacraments; My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.

     

                At the Visitation Convent of Paray-le-Monial,
                    France 1673-75 Christ appeared
                    to St. Margaret Mary and complained
                "Behold the Heart which has so loved men
                    that it has spared nothing, exhausting
                    and consuming itself in testimony
                    of its love. Instead of gratitude I receive
                    from most only indifference, by irreverence
                    and sacrilege and coldness and scorn
                    that men have for Me in the Sacrament
                    of Love."

                    Jesus asked the Friday after the
                Octave of Corpus Christi be made
                a feast of reparation, and, He gave
                her the 12 Promises to all who
                give devotion to His Sacred Heart.

                Jesus gave Fr. Carter the prayers in the
                    prayer manual and gave him
                    the following message with a
                    promise at the end

   

July 31, 1994

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)

     

                The First Friday devotion arose from
                the result of the appearance of
                Our Lord to St. Margaret Mary Alocoque.
                Jesus promised the grace of a happy
                death to those who receive Holy Communion
                on the First Friday of nine
                consecutive months.

                Envy is one of the seven capital sins.
                    It is wrong to use our minds and hearts
                    to bring self-destruction by looking
                    with anger or temper on others or
                    wishing them misfortune.

                Some in the world act like offenses that displease
                    God are not sins.
                    If we lie about sin we are deceiving and
                        giving into satan.

                We are not to commit adultery that is a sin,
                    but it is shown in our world
                    today as if it is accepted.

                Man has natural tendencies to sensuous
                    pleasure or evil which is called
                    concupiscence, this is the
                    result of the fall of Adam and Eve.

  

Romans 7: 7-12

What should we say, then? That the Law itself is sin? Out of the question! All the same, if it had not been for the Law, I should not have known what sin was; for instance, I should not have known what it meant to covet if the Law had not said: You are not to covet. But, once it found the opportunity through that commandment, sin produced in me all kinds of covetousness; as long as there is no Law, sin is dead.

    Once, when there was no Law, I used to be alive; but when the commandment came, sin came to life and I died. The commandment was meant to bring life but I found it brought death, because sin, finding its opportunity by means of the commandment, beguiled me and, by means of it, killed me.

    So then, the Law is holy, and what it commands is holy and upright and good.

 

Colossians 3: 5-11

That is why you must kill everything in you that is earthly: sexual vice, impurity, uncontrolled passion, evil desires and especially greed, which is the same thing as worshipping a false god; it is precisely these things which draw God's retribution upon those who resist. And these things made up your way of life when you were living among such people, but now you also must give up all these things: human anger, hot temper, malice, abusive language and dirty talk; and do not lie to each other. You have stripped off your old behaviour with your old self, and you have put on a new self which will progress towards true knowledge the more it is renewed in the image of its Creator; and in that image there is no room for distinction between Greek and Jew, between the circumcised and uncircumcised, or between barbarian and Scythian, slave and free. There is only Christ: he is everything and he is in everything.

 

1 Thessalonians 4: 3-5

    God wills you all to be holy. He wants you to keep away from sexual immorality, and each one of you to know how to control his body in a way that is holy and honourable, not giving way to selfish lust like the nations who do not acknowledge God. He wants nobody at all ever to sin by taking advantage of a brother in these matters; the Lord always pays back sins of that sort, as we told you before emphatically.

 

                God gives us confession to confess
                    our sins.

     

Matthew 16: 19

I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven: whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.’

   

Matthew 18: 18

    ‘In truth I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven

 

John 21: 18-19

    In all truth I tell you,
    when you were young
    you put on your own belt
    and walked where you liked;
    but when you grow old
    you will stretch out your hands,
    and somebody else
        will put a belt round you
    and take you
    where you would rather not go.'

In these words he indicated the kind of death by which Peter would give glory to God. After this he said, 'Follow me.'

 

John 20: 21-23  

and he said to them again, 'Peace be with you.

'As the Father sent me,
so am I sending you.'

After saying this he breathed on them and said:

Receive the Holy Spirit.
If you forgive anyone's sins,
they are forgiven;
if you retain anyone's sins,
they are retained.

 

                Man is to control his sexual drive.

  

Matthew 5: 27-30

    ‘You have heard how it was said, You shall not commit adultery. But I say this to you, if a man looks at a woman lustfully, he has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye should be your downfall, tear it out and throw it away; for it will do you less harm to lose one part of yourself than to have your whole body thrown into hell. And if your right hand should be your downfall, cut it off and throw it away; for it will do you less harm to lose one part of yourself than to have your whole body go to hell.

 

1 Peter 3: 2-6

when they see the reverence and purity of your way of life. Your adornment should be not an exterior one, consisting of braided hair or gold jewellery or fine clothing, but the interior disposition of the heart, consisting in the imperishable quality of a gentle and peaceful spirit, so precious in the sight of God. That was how the holy women of the past dressed themselves attractively-they hoped in God and were submissive to their husbands; like Sarah, who was obedient to Abraham, and called him her lord. You are now her children, as long as you live good lives free from fear and worry.

 

Titus 2: 1-8

It is for you, then, to preach the behaviour which goes with healthy doctrine. Older men should be reserved, dignified, moderate, sound in faith and love and perseverance. Similarly, older women should behave as befits religious people, with no scandal-mongering and no addiction to wine-they must be the teachers of right behaviour and show younger women how they should love their husbands and love their children, how they must be sensible and chaste, and how to work in their homes, and be gentle, and obey their husbands, so that the message of God is not disgraced. Similarly, urge younger men to be moderate in everything that they do, and you yourself set an example of good works, by sincerity and earnestness, when you are teaching, and by a message sound and irreproachable

 

Proverbs 5: 15-20

Drink the water from your own storage-well,
    fresh water from your own spring.
Even if your fountains overflow outside,
    your streams of water in the public squares:
let them be for you alone,
    and not for strangers with you.
May your fountain-head be blessed!

Find joy with the wife you married in your youth,
    fair as a hind, graceful as a fawn:
    hers the breasts that ever fill you with delight,
    hers the love that ever holds you captive.
Why be seduced, my son, by someone else's wife,
    and fondle the breast of a woman who belongs to another"

 

Genesis 39: 7-20  

and it happened some time later that his master's wife cast her eyes on Joseph and said, "Sleep with me." But he refused. "Look," he said to his master's wife, "with me here, my master does not concern himself with what happens in the house, having entrusted all his possessions to me. He himself wields no more authority in this house than I do. He has exempted nothing from me except yourself, because you are his wife. How could I do anything so wicked, and sin against God?" Although she spoke to Joseph day after day, he would not agree to sleep with her or be with her.

    But one day when Joseph came into the house to do his work, and none of the men of the household happened to be indoors, she caught hold of him by his tunic and said, "Sleep with me." But he left the tunic in her hand, took to his heels and got out. When she saw that he had left the tunic in her hands as he ran out, she called her servants and said to them, "Look at this! My husband brought in a Hebrew to make a fool of me! He burst in on me, but I screamed, and when he heard me scream, he left his tunic beside me and ran out of the house."

    She kept his tunic by her until his master came home. Then she told him the same tale, 'The Hebrew slave you brought to us burst in on me to make a fool of me. But when I screamed, he left his tunic beside me and ran away." When his master heard his wife say, "This was how your slave treated me," he became furious. Joseph's master had him arrested and committed to the gaol where the king's prisoners were kept.

 

                The ancient world stressed the
                    nature of the flesh as opposed
                    to the nature of the Spirit of God.

  

Romans 7: 14-25 

We are well aware that the Law is spiritual: but I am a creature of flesh and blood sold as a slave to sin. I do not understand my own behaviour; I do not act as I mean to, but I do things that I hate. While I am acting as I do not want to, I still acknowledge the Law as good, so it is not myself acting, but the sin which lives in me. And really, I know of nothing good living in me -- in my natural self, that is -- for though the will to do what is good is in me, the power to do it is not: the good thing I want to do, I never do; the evil thing which I do not want -- that is what I do. But every time I do what I do not want to, then it is not myself acting, but the sin that lives in me.

    So I find this rule: that for me, where I want to do nothing but good, evil is close at my side. In my inmost self I dearly love God's law, but I see that acting on my body there is a different law which battles against the law in my mind. So I am brought to be a prisoner of that law of sin which lives inside my body.

    What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body doomed to death? God -- thanks be to him -- through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    So it is that I myself with my mind obey the law of God, but in my disordered nature I obey the law of sin.

 

Romans 8: 5-11  

Those who are living by their natural inclinations have their minds on the things human nature desires; those who live in the Spirit have their minds on spiritual things. And human nature has nothing to look forward to but death, while the Spirit looks forward to life and peace, because the outlook of disordered human nature is opposed to God, since it does not submit to God’s Law, and indeed it cannot, and those who live by their natural inclinations can never be pleasing to God. You, however, live not by your natural inclinations, but by the Spirit, since the Spirit of God has made a home in you. Indeed, anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. But when Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin but the spirit is alive because you have been justified; and if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead has made his home in you, then he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will give life to your own mortal bodies through his Spirit living in you.

 

1 Corinthians 3: 1-3

And so, brothers, I was not able to talk to you as spiritual people; I had to talk to you as people still living by your natural inclinations, still infants in Christ; I fed you with milk and not solid food, for you were not yet able to take it-and even now, you are still not able to, for you are still living by your natural inclinations. As long as there are jealousy and rivalry among you, that surely means that you are still living by your natural inclinations and by merely human principles.

  

                Jesus took Peter, James and John in
                    the garden — He told them to
                    be aware of temptations —
                    Jesus said
                    "Sit down here while I pray"

                Christ begged the Father as He
                    knelt to pray

                    "Father if it is your will, take
                        this cup from me, yet not
                        my will but yours be done"

                Christ knew the suffering He would
                    suffer.

                An angel appeared to strengthen Him —
                His sweat became drops of blood falling to
                    the ground
                He returned to the sleeping disciples —
                Judas then appeared.

   

Revelation 14: 1-5

Next in my vision I saw Mount Zion, and standing on it the Lamb who had with him a hundred and forty-four thousand people, all with his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads. I heard a sound coming out of heaven like the sound of the ocean or the roar of thunder; it was like the sound of harpists playing their harps. There before the throne they were singing a new hymn in the presence of the four living creatures and the elders, a hymn that could be learnt only by the hundred and forty-four thousand who had been redeemed from the world. These are the sons who have kept their virginity and not been defiled with women they follow the Lamb wherever he goes; they, out of all people, have been redeemed to be the first-fruits for God and for the Lamb. No lie was found in their mouths and no fault can be found in them.

 

                Holy Spirit Revelation about lying

                    The first commandment of God
                        "I am the Lord thy God; thou
                        shalt not have strange (false)
                        gods before Me"

                    We are to give to God what is His due.
                    We give highest honor to God —
                    We have faith, hope and love.
                    We adore God
                    We must offer God the supreme
                        worship that is His due.

                    God wants us to obey out of love.
                    He tells us to call Him "Our Father"
                    We are not to see ourselves as slaves
                        obeying God.

 

Matthew 5: 1-12

Seeing the crowds, he went onto the mountain. And when he was
seated his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak. This is
what he taught them:

How blessed are the poor in spirit:
the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
Blessed are the gentle:
they shall have the earth as inheritance.
Blessed are those who mourn:
they shall be comforted.
Blessed are those
   who hunger and thirst for uprightness:
they shall have their fill.
Blessed are the merciful:
they shall have mercy shown them.
Blessed are the pure in heart:
they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers:
they shall be recognised
   as children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted
   in the cause of uprightness:
the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

Blessed are you when people abuse you and persecute you and
speak all kinds of calumny against you falsely on my account.
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven; this
is how they persecuted the prophets before you.

 

                    Could we even comprehend how it was for
                Christ to come upon the earth and to deal
                with the people who did not know or
                understood the things He knew.

                    How horrendous it was for men to
                mock Jesus and accuse Him so unjustly —
                Jesus, all perfect, the Son of God, to walk
                amidst the unforgiving, pompous,
                arrogant men — so filled with pride,
                anger, lust — crying out to God —
                'Crucify Him".

                    And they hung Him between two
                criminals. They hung Jesus shamefully
                by nails, body almost naked, on a
                tree, people watched as Jesus died —
                they watched a man put to death —
                Jesus allowed this humiliation — He
                took the nature of a slave — He hung and
                went through a derisive death.

                    See men as they watched Jesus carry
                the cross, laden with the sins of the
                world. Gawkers — like gawker that
                watch a wreck —

                    Jesus all merciful
                    They had no mercy
                    Their hearts — hearts of stone
                    Their anger so great that they could
                        crucify an innocent man.

                Did you ever see a man that is so
                    consumed with hatred to act it
                    out — to 'save face' — he pokes and pokes
                    at an innocent other to try to infuriate
                    them — because he sees himself too
                    perfect to act out his own anger —
                    It is deceptive, lying, he is angry,
                    full of hate and he acts in hate
                    to a scapegoat an innocent other —
                    then like a whipping boy — he gets
                    relief watching the other suffer —
                    He hides His impurities, his hatred
                    from himself and he laughs little
                    unless he has made another suffer —

                    Anger is an outburst of emotion
                    and is filled with revenge —
                    It is one of the 7 capital sins —
                    it is a disorder, full of passion — indignation

                    Jesus was the Lamb led to the
                slaughter — They wanted Jesus dead
                on the cross — They whipped Jesus to
                their own exhaustion — Did you see
                anything but darkness inside men who
                make others a scapegoat who are
                consumed with pride, hatred and
                anger because they were betrayed and
                they act out their hatred on another —
                they work to 'save face', blaming another,
                trying to look innocent and calm themselves;
                when someone is passive-aggressive —
                they can be filled with hatred.

                    The life I have lived is to try to grow
                in greater holiness — writing God's
                messages for 17 years to help people
                to love, to be pure inside, to know
                God's love — to know about the Eucharist
                the scriptures, meditations on the
                rosary — forgiveness — hope ——

                Judas betrayed Jesus, of the twelve Apostles — Judas
                sold Jesus for 30 pieces of silver —
                Now what happens when a man has
                been so wounded by another and
                betrayed — his family torn apart —
                does he carry the hatred in his
                heart wanting to punish and punish,
                but the law says don't do that
                so deceptively he tries to control
                to inflict pain, causing confusion,
                disharmony to have combat for
                his hatred inside — attacking others
                innocently who love and try to do
                good —

                    How could they tear the flesh
                of Jesus, the Son of God, how could
                they beat Him, how could they argue
                with their words of untruth to
                justify their actions.

                They used profanity on Jesus, blaspheming Jesus —
                    disrespecting Jesus — Jesus, the Son of God -
                    died for these prideful men's sin.

                    The commandments command we speak
                the truth in all things.

   

 

The Ten Commandments
  1. I am the Lord thy God; thou shalt not have strange gods before Me.

  2. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.

  3. Remember thou keep holy the Sabbath day.

  4. Honor thy father and thy mother.

  5. Thou shalt not kill.

  6. Thou shalt not commit adultery.

  7. Thou shalt not steal.

  8. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

  9. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife.

  10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's goods.

    

                    The commandments — command we act
                and think as God tells us. God made it a rule!!
                The ninth commandment says
                Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors wife.

                    The heart is an organ in a man —
                it gives blood to the whole body —
                pumping life to the whole body —
                when the heart is obstructed the body
                can die.

                    Now look at all the people wounded
                by divorce, watching children learn
                to live divided lives, when children
                have come to this earth in a beautiful
                act of co-creating and God has
                made marriage a sacrament, but
                the sacrament of marriage as beautiful
                as it is can be torn apart by selfishness,
                unfaithfulness to the marriage vow.
                (Some marriages can legally be annulled by the Church and legal authorities.)
                The most intimate act of giving
                oneself completely to another —
                based on trust to the core of one's
                heart — commitment, bearing
                children and then one morning some
                are betrayed — left with a 'whole in their heart.'

                Jesus showed us how the Apostles
                followed Him but Judas lied —
                Judas talked to Jesus' enemies
                to sell Jesus, the Son of God.
                At the Last Supper when Jesus
                took bread and blessed it

                Jesus knew Judas was going to betray Him.

                What about the trust of another — when
                you give your life to them and then
                because maybe you argued, were
                hard to get along with, didn't
                fill emotional needs — the other
                finds someone who is able to fill their emotional needs and
                who gives them love, understanding —
                what about their children —

                    How many others because of being
                betrayed live with stone hearts
                punishing an innocent other, not
                laughing life long, not feeling because
                their life is now ship-wrecked.

                    When pain of abandonment is so
                great another can shut down their
                heart and not feel, laugh, show
                anger become a heart of stone —
                They rationalize they will never get
                hurt again so they shut down the
                bleeding wound and put up a big
                sign "Do not enter" because they
                never want to be betrayed again,
                but we were created to love — we
                were meant to be sensitive, to laugh
                to show frustration, to act with
                emotions, but they cannot jostle
                their bleeding heart, they think, so they
                may wound innocent others now in their life

                    A 'pot' of hatred and unforgiveness for
                the betrayal — finally they can destroy
                themselves if no one wants to be around them —
                A negative, locked up person can live
                in a tomb of darkness — fear of
                abandonment or knowing the horrendous
                pain of betrayal they feel would be
                more then they can deal with — so they
                lock themselves up and their god
                becomes - making sure they don't
                feel again — so they won't have to
                deal with the pain inside — they
                in a sense — shut down because
                they think they could not take it

                    Now God intends us to be sensitive —
                to have relationships of giving and
                taking — to be able to act from our
                hearts in the world — to be sensitive —
                to learn how to do God's will more
                and more with a vibrant growing
                heart of love, trust, commitment
                most likened to Jesus.

                    How many hearts are shut down —
                where they should be one in purity
                to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary —
                they lack sensitivity having one
                divorce, maybe two, living
                betrayed — angry — not wanting to feel
                or trust again and in this darkness of
                this locked up tomb of pain — the
                devil works in fear — they may
                want to slavishly hook onto another
                so they can control them through
                some measures of exchange — you
                need me — I have this power — so you
                stay connected while I slavishly
                hold onto you.

                    What happens when a heart is like
                stone, unable to trust others, unable
                to commit to others honestly for fear
                of being betrayed again — so they
                control everything or they try to control
                others trying to make them slavishly dependent
                so they will never to abandoned again, they think.

                    Adults can feel abandoned by alcoholic
                parents who never gave children what they
                needed emotionally to feel secure, loved, important.

                    Mom and dad could have selfishly
                fought — showing hate — unsecurity
                for a little child and no love
                was shown between parents —
                competition, seeking dominance
                over the other, selfishness,
                lack of predictability — then to
                'save face' forcing all to go outside
                around others and never speak
                of the unloving war-zone they were
                forced to survive under —

                    When someone is wounded and shut
                off does the Spirit of truth live
                deeply inside or do they lie to themselves
                and their all consuming desire is
                to protect their face so no one sees
                their fear of abandonment, no one
                knows they don't act spontaneously, they think.
                Having a wild spirit inside — one unharnessed
                from the evil one — doing as you please
                is death. Discernment of the Spirit
                is vital.

                    Here is what I put on last week -
                    from Thursday's message about
                    Discernment of the Spirits.
                    It will put on at the end of the message —

                When a person gives themselves in marriage
                to another — they have extended themselves
                as they have to no other person — to
                be betrayed by another at the core
                is a horrendous thing — When children
                are involved can be far worse.

                    A person wishing to 'save face' from
                a gaping wound that has been locked
                away and never healed can be like
                carrying an 'atom bomb' — The person
                must face the fear, the abandonment,
                the betrayed trust — they don't keep
                acting out the unfinished hatred they
                feel on others —

                    Children in dysfunctional homes
                can be robbed of their emotional needs
                as parents act out all kinds of
                things and try to 'save face', when there
                is a big wreck inside the heart
                of the parent.

                    In giving the Blue Book messages to
                us and going to the Eucharist Jesus fills
                us with the knowledge of His love for
                us — His Divine all perfect love —

                    Jesus tells us about His passion — how
                they whipped Him and how He died for
                us in the Blue Books and Rosaries from
                the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
— Jesus
                is there to help our hearts be vibrant
                and filled with love and truth in
                many places where people have hearts
                like a big wreck or a stone heart
                acting out hatred, deception, lies
                on others.

                    Jesus shows us how His wounds became
                glorified wounds. Jesus died — Jesus
                rose from the dead —

                    Jesus gives us the gift to know about Saul.
                Jesus shows us the weakness and strength
                of Peter —

                    The connection for religious, for all of
                us to be one is in our hearts. We are
                one in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
                living in the truth. When children
                have been wounded in homes, it is
                healing when a child talks about it
                at 10, 15, 20, 30, 40 etc. and the
                parents listen and validates the suffering
                a child may have endured while
                they were in the family under them
                as parents. A child (10-60) could say,
                "When this happened — this was awful."

                A parent wanting to help the child work
                through their pain, can validate what
                the child suffered — "I know, I am
                sorry, that happened"

                A parent living deception — wanting to
                'save face' may throw the focus on
                themselves —

                    denying it happened
                    telling the child how they suffered
                        instead of listening and validating
                        pain a child suffered at
                        the parent's hands —

                In validating the truth of how children
                    may have suffered under their
                    leadership as parents they can
                    help the child work through
                    painful things because it was
                    validated by the parents — It was
                    telling the truth to the child for
                    love of repairing their wounds
                    because of parental things —

                A parent who never admits their
                    mistakes can send a child away
                    with
                    "Oh that wasn't that bad"
                    "Look at how I suffered"

                This closes the door to a child's open
                    heart — wanting healing and
                    validation
                    (a child should not do this every
                        day to manipulate
                        the parent)

                This may only need to be done once or
                    twice and it can help a child
                    heal.

                A person suffering an awful divorce
                    should not be in a fish bowl
                    expected to look like a good
                    fish and nothing happened —
                    Living to 'save face' — so others
                    can say
                    "Oh look how strong he or she is"

                A person forced to get a divorce and suffering needs to
                    get in touch with the feeling
                    of betrayal and how their hopes
                    and dreams were shattered
                    and cry, validate the horrendous
                    thing that happened.

                A person forced to act strong, 'save face',
                    worry with what others think rather
                    than dealing with the bleeding wound
                    inside — will stuff that bleeding
                    wound and like a jumping
                    worm inside — it doesn't
                    go away —

                    they can continue to act in hate,
                    hidden anger, passive-aggressive
                    ways on innocent others even at the
                    memory of birthday's, Christmas —
                    the devil can work through negativism
                    deep in this cavern of pain and
                    lack of living the reality —

                How division with another is not what God
                    wants — we must work through it —
                    ending a marriage is pain and suffering
                    the truth must be faced
                    to have the truth in us —

                Projection is common among some
                    setting up a surrogate relationship
                    trying to act out unfinished
                    business, resolve tension —
                    so the business is finished
                    once and for all.

                    Blaming and hurting innocent
                    others lead us into deeper and
                    deeper darkness and
                    the hatred becomes thicker —
                    the lies about what happened to
                    ourselves more advanced as we try to
                    act it out on others —

                It won't go away —
                Trauma like a divorce needs to be
                    recognized and healed —
                    not acting out hatred on innocent
                    others.
                    acting like - it was nothing —
                    I don't need to cry and forgive
                        and finish the business —
                        Let them go — if they
                        are married with new children.
                        Are you punishing everybody
                            else while you hold
                            on in love to the
                            betrayer —

                Do you need division with another surrogate
                    person so you can control the division
                    in this relationship, since you have no
                    control over the division forced on you?

                Do you need to punish others through
                    combat so the cycle fighting - resolving,
                    fighting - resolving, can act out your
                    unresolved issue over and over again
                    on an innocent other?

                The divorce ended the marriage -
                    no fighting with others and resolving
                    will bring the unfinished busines

                Only facing the pain, facing the anger
                    and betrayal of the marriage will end
                    the unfinished 'worm' jumping inside —
                    START A FIGHT — combat with an
                    innocent other — get forgiveness start again —
                    the forced divorce, annulment must be let go of
                    especially if new children are in the picture.

                Forgive them — look at your hidden
                        stuffed pain — move on
                        quit punishing innocent others

                There are as many hearts as faces —

                Punishing another woman for your
                    woman problems with other
                    women is wrong.

                Punishing another man because of other
                    male problems in your previous
                    life is wrong.

                Some children of abusive
                    parents do not know how they need
                    to validate what happened,
                    forgive the parents and
                    move on —
                    they carry that unfinished
                    business because it is too
                    painful to look at, they think — they
                    were robbed of emotional love
                    and support from parents —

                They need to validate what happened
                They need to forgive the parents
                    and move on — UNFINISHED BUSINESS
                            IS LIKE MICE IN YOUR HOUSE

                Who wants mice and rats crawling on
                    a clean kitchen floor — getting
                    in the children's stuffed toys and
                    making a mess which can lead
                    to infection —

                Cleaning one's heart — means just that —
                    validating old wounds —
                    looking at fear of abandonment —
                    letting people we inter act with today go
                        freely in and out doors not holding on to them
                        and being slavishly dependent
                        because of sick abandonment needs —

                    Not being afraid like a baby —
                        they won't love me the same
                        when they come back —
                        they may not come back —

                Children learn trust —
                Mom leaves — mom comes back and
                    loves me the same

                People with angry parents may
                    have learned — he acts
                    nice today — he says
                    abusive things tomorrow —
                    he made me feel useless
                    from what he told me as
                    a child

                Learning from a sick parent is
                    just that — they needed healing —
                    they may spray you with
                    their spray can of anger —
                    You have to recognize you were
                        sprayed and get rid of that old
                        generational anger         
                    not try to continue it on innocent
                        others telling yourself it
                        is okay — people did it to me —
                   
                You need to stop it —

                Loving people live in unity
                Loving people like Christ —
                    love, not use others
                    in manipulation and
                    control to wound them

                Ignoring your past wounds can
                    be ignoring an 'atom bomb' —
                    get rid of it

                Christ

                            wounds

                                        were

                                                    glorified

                 

 

Excerpts from Blue Book 6B

 

February 24, 1995

Sorrowful Mysteries

The Agony in the Garden

5. R. Out of greatest love for us, God gave us a free will. It is up to us to follow the way of Jesus or to go our own way.

3. R. Jesus saw before Him the bloody massacre He was about to undergo.

2. R. Jesus was alone in the Garden. He saw before Him all the sufferings He was about to undergo. Put yourself in the Garden with Jesus, in the darkened night. Hear the sounds of the night. Look at Jesus as He kneels and as He suffers the great anguish to His Most Precious Heart.

 

Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar

7. R. They whipped Jesus! They scourged Him! Jesus was silent! Jesus loved those who persecuted Him. He comes to show us the way. His way is love.

Jesus: Love! Love! Love, My children! I send you into the world as My soldiers to spread My love to a world that is in pain. I will touch this world through you, through your heart. If you open up your heart, if you pray to the Spirit, I will send you into the world and I will minister to My beloved ones through you.

5. R. Jesus stood at the pillar and they mercilessly scourged Him. They tore His flesh and He stood in a puddle of His own blood, the blood that He shed because He loves us so much.

6. R. Jesus calls out to you this day to purify your heart. He wants to be ever closer to you. But Love unites with Love. If our hearts are full of debris, of hatred or anger, of not liking our brothers, we can not unite closely with Jesus. A heart that is filled with love will unite so closely with the most tender Heart of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

3. R. And His blood was bright red! They beat Him! They hit Him! They scourged Him! He truly went through this persecution for greatest love of us. He shed His blood so that we can be with God someday forever in Heaven.

 

Jesus Carries His Cross Up Calvary

1. R. They poked at Jesus! They treated Him so cruelly! He stood with His hands tied in front of Him! They were angry, their hearts full of hatred. Jesus stood with a look of perfect peace on His face and they condemned Him to death!

2. R. They gave to Jesus a heavy cross and they put it on His shoulder. The pains that Jesus suffered to His shoulder to carry the cross. He could scarcely move the cross was so heavy. They poked at Him and they pushed on Him! His shoulder hurt so badly that it felt as if it would break!

8. R. Their eyes peered into one another's on Calvary. The great love that Mary had for Jesus. She saw Him streaming with blood and with the cross on His back. As Her eyes peered into His and His eyes peered into His loving Mother's, He saw her face, reddened and covered with tears in such suffering. In the meeting of these two eyes is the meaning of the intimacy of these two Hearts. So joined are the Hearts of Jesus and Mary! Jesus wants us to come through Mary's most pure and tender Heart to be led ever closer to Him. He loves His Mother. It is through Her Heart that we are led to the deepest intimacies of Jesus' burning Heart.

9. R. Jesus was persecuted! He was whipped! Now He carried the heavy cross on His back. Think of the shoulder of Jesus and how it ached to carry this cross. Think of the wounds that He had on His whole body and how they hurt. Think of how His head pounded from the crown of thorns. But His greatest agonies were not the agonies that He experienced to His physical body, but the agonies that He experienced to His Most Sacred Heart for He loves each soul with such deep love. How many souls treat Him coldly and neglect Him? He waits and waits for the souls that He loves to come and be with Him, to spend time with Him in front of the tabernacle, time alone with Him wherever they are. Each day He wants time alone with each soul that He loves!

10. Jesus: Do you not have one hour to spend with Me? I call you as soldiers to go out to this world and to spread the love of My Most Sacred Heart in the highways and the byways, to listen to My pleading. I call you to go out. But it is not through your own might that you will spread this love to the world, it is through the might of the Almighty God. You must come and become ever closer to My Sacred Heart. You must pray for union with Me. It is only in this union that you will be able to do the job that the Father has called you to do. It is the might of the Almighty God that will be with you in the world, that will transform you from fear to fearlessness to do the task that I call you to this evening to spread My love to the world that is in so much pain.

 

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

4. R. Mary stood under the cross against the darkened sky and watched her beloved Son as He hung for three agonizing hours. Three hours! He was thirty-three years old! Jesus hung to His death for three hours!

Unity

Song:  One Bread, One Body

R.  We unite so when we receive the body of Christ together. The more we grow in union with Christ, the more we become one in Him. If each person is in union with Him and He is one in us, we are so united with each other because we are one in Him.

    Do we want unity in the Church, Unity in the Center, Unity is found being strongly united in the body of Christ. Great union with Him is found after we receive communion. If the people in the Church receive communion frequently, we become forever united so closely in the Eucharist. It is through His body and blood we unite with Him so closely. When groups are joined in adoration, prayer groups before the tabernacle they are joined so closely to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.

    Unity will be achieved when we realize that to unite the closest we must ever grow in our union with Him. To be one in Him is to be one with each other. How can I be one in Him and not one with you, if He is one in me and you are one in Him, we are one with each other in His body.

    Who are we that He gives us such abundant graces through the Eucharist? Who are we that He remains with us in His Divinity and humanity? He wants us to be one in the body of Christ.

    For our Church to unite, for this Center to unite we must pray for union with Him. We must realize more the immense power of Masses, Masses at the Center where all go to Communion, we all become so close to Him in Communion, we are so close to each other in communion because we are one in Him.

Sing:  One Bread, One Body

R.    All praying together before the tabernacle, praying before the exposed Eucharist, we recognize, the Son of God truly present and we adore Him.

    We are one body in Christ, we are one in Him, we are one with each other when all are so closely united to the Eucharist.

    THIS IS HIS BODY. Present in His Divinity and humanity. This is God!!

    We must unite in Masses, praying before the Eucharist, in Adoration — this is His body.

    It is those actions, sometimes in silence that show the greatest love, not loud and boastful, sweet and loving.

   

 

February 26, 1995

Here Me Say Minute by Minute

Jesus:  Hear Me say minute by minute, second by second how I love you.

R.  If we hear Him say to us how He loves us how can we be angry.

Jesus:  When you are filled with My love, when you know My love, you will love your brothers.

    To know Me is to love others.

    Oh My sweet ones, knowing My intense love is the key to peace and joy.

R.  Jesus makes up for the thorns, His love makes us happy.

Sing:  I love you this day.

R.  People are creatures. They do unloving things. Look into everyone's eyes.

The eyes are the windows of the souls.

  

 

February 26, 1995

Glorious Mysteries

The Ascension

10. R. Jesus wants to be one with us. Jesus wants us to forever be about our union with Him, to be so close to Him, to be conscious as we breathe of His presence at every moment. For He is truly there and He is softly saying: "I love you, My beloved one."

Song: I Love You Jesus

 

The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth

4. Mary: My dear chosen ones, how I hold you so closely to my breast. How I protect you from this world that is hurting. How I am forever with you and never leave your side. Come to me! Speak to me! I am your Beloved Mother! I love you with such a tender Heart! I will never leave you! I will always be with you, watching out for you and protecting you and leading you ever closer to the Most Sacred Heart of my Beloved Son.

6. Mary: And the world will hate you, My children. The world is cold and in darkness. They have lost their focus of God. Many have become godless. I call out to you, my beloved children, to come ever closer to me and let me lead you to close union with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus, my Beloved Son, is ever with you, outpouring His love to you. If you realize the love of Jesus, you can not help but love others. You must focus more and more on the intensity of the love that He has for you for it is in realizing this intense love that you will spread this love to others.

7. Mary: Little children! Little children! You do not think that I speak to you! But I call you every day. You do not quiet your hearts and listen to my plaintive cry. Take my words seriously. I am sending you into this world to spread the love of my Son into this world. I beg you! I beg you to pray, pray for fearlessness so that you will not be caught up in the pressures of this world that try to keep you from the work that I am asking you to accomplish.

Awaken from sleep to take message

Obedience and God's Will

Jesus:  Doing a good thing is not necessarily My Father's will. I demand obedience, it may seem incidental, but if you know it is My will you should do My will. You are not happy if  you are not following God's will. To My death on the cross I did always the Father's will, I call you today to obedience. We are asking you to pray the rosary at the Center.

    I am with you in all you do. I am so close to you. I am Jesus, the Son of God. Ask Me your questions, I will answer you and tell you all you need.

R.  And He answered their needs and they knew God's power.

    All that matters is I do His will. If I do anything that deviates from this, I do not feel good.

Jesus:  I want you to pray the rosary at the Center at 6:30.

    Doing My Father's will is the most important in suffering.

    You must do My Father's will, your children need to go to Mass, you need to pray the rosary at the Center 6:30, you need to pray the rosary there with your children and you need to pray the rosary every day. Read My messages of love with your children. Your child has not read a Blue Book message for a long time. He needs to read these messages. Your children come first.

  

February 28, 1995

You Will March with Peace and Joy

Jesus:  My God My God Oh why have you forsaken Me.

    My child, you must be strong. Satan will forever tell  you you are weary and tired. I call you to obedience. What are you doing with your life? Are you living it for Me? If you are focused on your treasures here below you are missing the greatest gifts on this earth. I am here truly present in the Eucharist with My great love waiting for you, longing for you ready to hold you up at any moment.

    Let go, feel a release of that which is making you tired. I want to live in you — dwell deeply in your heart. I give a special sharing in My life through baptism. I am your God, I do not want false gods before Me. I call you to obedience, I call you to surrender, I call you to love LOVE of God, LOVE of one another, if you do not love each other you will not have peace.

    You are my chosen ones. I send you into this world girded for battle — send you as warriors into wolves.

    They will bite at your heels and prick your skin and you, through My might will march with peace and joy. I am your God, forever with you, oh children, you do not know how much I love you. As you breathe, as your heart beats, I am forever with you calling out, I love you, I love you, I love you.

Knowing God Helps You to Heal

R.  Unity is found in being together in the Mass.
      Unity is found in praying before the Blessed Sacrament
      Unity is found in praying.

      Unity is found in eating together, Jesus always ate with the Apostles.

      Socializing — gatherings — marriages — big events

      The Trinity is one.

     

Matthew 11: 25

At that time Jesus exclaimed, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children.

Jesus:  Many persons in alcoholic homes have had problems because they have been forced to live in isolation to hide this disease.

    It can hurt your socialization process with others when you do not communicate well. When you cannot relate very well with others. Growing in your love union with Me will help you heal. I am the teacher — I teach you to communicate. Perfect communication is found in the Trinity.

R.  Unity is found in being together at Mass. Unity is found in praying before the Blessed Sacrament. Unity in praying together. Mary said the family that prays together stays together.

There can be intense unity when praying before the Blessed Sacrament. The Trinity is one. There are 3 Persons in one God. In the Church we are the body of Christ. We are many members of one body. Christ is the head we are the members. We are one in Him. The Trinity is one. The Trinity is love. To unite we must love. You cannot experience love (true love) and hate at the same time. We love even though there are differences.

    

Matthew 11: 25

At that time Jesus exclaimed, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children.

    Jesus ate many times, He is seen as feeding and at gatherings. When we gather together and eat, we unite with one another. Eating together creates unity. Satan tries to destroy the family meal. He does this to keep people away from intimate contact. Praying together, eating together, communicating with one another helps to unite family, friends and communities.

    In our every breath realize that God is with us. Living in the Father's will is living always as a little child striving to please our Father. We want to live as He wills us to, He knows best.

    Jesus is forever with us saying in a small soft voice, Oh How I love you. He never leaves us for one moment. He is hyper-vigilant and ever attentive to our every need.

    If we are baptized and in the state of grace the Trinity dwells in us in such a special way. We become one, more and more, the more we unite to the Trinity. Who are we that God is so good to us, that He lives in us that He is here every second we breathe. We are never alone. In this interior life we know the presence of the one true God. God dwells in us and we become more one with Him and everyone in love.

    God fills us. He lives and dwells within us because of baptism when we remain in the state of grace.

    The more we become one in Him through baptism and the sacraments, the more we love one another. God lives in the graced soul in a very special way. How can I be one in Him and not be united loving my brother? The Church is the body of Christ. The Church is to be united deeply.

Song:  One Bread, One Body

    Jesus is shown at gatherings, eating, unity, unity with Jesus. At Mass we are so united — God gives us Himself in communion. We are one body in the Church.

    The Mass unites us so strongly. The Church is one, as we attend the Mass, we are united with the Church in such a deep way. As we receive the consecrated host, we become more one in Him.

    Jesus told me to go to Mass with my children everyday — what unity. He told us to pray and play together. Intimacy, with the members of the family — we unite in Him. Very great union is felt in adoration of a family before the tabernacle or exposed Eucharist. Sit next to one another in Church and pray together to achieve this unity.

    Stop and pray the Angelus, the Divine Mercy a few moments in prayer to unite in Him.

    Song:  Now We Remain

       

February 28, 1995

ONENESS

Jesus:  Hear the sweet soft voice within say, "I love  you", "I love you", "I love you".

R.  We are dependent on God for our every breath. He can at any moment give us a disease and we can be stopped. We can have an accident and be stopped.

    He is in control. The first commandment commands

        I, the Lord, am your God. You shall not have other gods besides me.

    He commands us to two things, love of God and love of neighbor.

    We are to be one in Him. He wants us to unite and to love one another. The most perfect unity is seen in the Trinity. The Persons of the Trinity communicate with the other Persons in the Trinity in greatest love.

 

Excerpt from Response to God's Love, by Father Edward Carter, S.J.

...In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

    The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ. St. Paul tells us: "I became a minister of this Church through the commission God gave me to preach among you his word in its fullness, that mystery hidden from ages and generations past but now revealed to his holy ones. God has willed to make known to them the glory beyond price which this mystery brings to the Gentiles—the mystery of Christ in you, your hope of glory. This is the Christ we proclaim while we admonish all men and teach them in the full measure of wisdom, hoping to make every man complete in Christ" (Col 1:25-28).

Excerpt from March 27, 2008

 

Excerpt of The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
by Louis J. Puhl, S.J. pp. 141-146

313. RULES FOR DISCERNMENT OF SPIRITS
I

Rules for understanding to some extent the different movements produced in the soul and for recognizing those that are good to admit them, and those that are bad, to reject them. These rules are more suited to the first week
  

314.  I.  In the case of those who go from one mortal sin to another, the enemy is ordinarily accustomed to propose apparent pleasures. He fills their imagination with sensual delights and gratifications, the more readily to keep them in their vices and increase the number of their sins.

    With such persons the good spirit uses a method which is the reverse of the above. Making use of the light of reason, he will rouse the sting of conscience and fill them with remorse.

315.  2.  In the case of those who go on earnestly striving to cleanse their souls from sin and who seek to rise in the service of God our Lord to greater perfection, the method pursued is the opposite of that mentioned in the first rule.

    Then it is characteristic of the evil spirit to harass with anxiety, to afflict with sadness, to raise obstacles backed by fallacious reasonings that disturb the soul. Thus he seeks to prevent the soul from advancing.

    It is characteristic of the good spirit, however, to give courage and strength, consolations, tears, inspirations, and peace. This He does by making all easy, by removing all obstacles so that the soul goes forward in doing good.

316.  3.  SPIRITUAL CONSOLATION.  I call it consolation when an interior movement is aroused in the soul, by which it is inflamed with love of its Creator and Lord, and as a consequence, can love no creature on the face of the earth for its own sake, but only in the Creator of them all. It is likewise consolation when one sheds tears that move to the love of God, whether it be because of sorrow for sins, or because of the sufferings of Christ our Lord, or for any other reason that is immediately directed to the praise and service of God. Finally, I call consolation every increase of faith, hope, and love, and all interior joy that invites and attracts to what is heavenly and to the salvation of one's soul by filling it with peace and quiet in its Creator and Lord.

317.  4.  SPIRITUAL DESOLATION.  I call desolation what is entirely the opposite of what is described in the third rule, as darkness of soul, turmoil of spirit, inclination to what is low and earthly, restlessness rising from many disturbances and temptations which lead to want of faith, want of hope, want of love. The soul is wholly slothful, tepid, sad, and separated, as it were, from its Creator and Lord. For just as consolation is the opposite of desolation, so the thoughts that spring from consolation are the opposite of those that spring from desolation.

318.  5.  In time of desolation we should never make any change, but remain firm and constant in the resolution and decision which guided us the day before the desolation, or in the decision to which we adhered in the preceding consolation. For just as in consolation the good spirit guides and counsels us, so in desolation the evil spirit guides and counsels. Following his counsels we can never find the way to a right decision.

319.  6.  Though in desolation we must never change our former resolutions, it will be very advantageous to intensify our activity against the desolation. We can insist more upon prayer, upon meditation, and on much examination of ourselves. We can make an effort in a suitable way to do some penance.

320.  7.  When one is in desolation, he should be mindful that God has left him to his natural powers to resist the different agitations and temptations of the enemy in order to try him. He can resist with the help of God, which always remains, though he may not clearly perceive it. For though God has taken from him the abundance of fervor and overflowing love and the intensity of His favors, nevertheless, he has sufficient grace for eternal salvation.

321.  8.  When one is in desolation, he should strive to persevere in patience. This reacts against the vexations that have overtaken him. Let him consider, too, that consolation will soon return, and in the meantime, he must diligently use the means against desolation which have been given in the sixth rule.

322.  9.  The principal reasons why we suffer from desolation are three:

    The first is because we have been tepid and slothful or negligent in our exercises of piety, and so through our own fault spiritual consolation has been taken away from us.

    The second reason is because God wishes to try us, to see how much we are worth, and how much we will advance in His service and praise when left without the generous reward of consolations and signal favors.

    The third reason is because God wishes to give us a true knowledge and understanding of ourselves, so that we may have an intimate perception of the fact that it is not within our power to acquire and attain great devotion, intense love, tears, or any other spiritual consolation; but that all this is the gift and grace of God our Lord. God does not wish us to build on the property of another, to rise up in spirit in a certain pride and vainglory and attribute to ourselves the devotion and other effects of spiritual consolation.

323.  10.  When one enjoys consolation, let him consider how he will conduct himself during the time of ensuing desolation, and store up a supply of strength as defense against that day.

324.  11.  He who enjoys consolation should take care to humble himself and lower himself as much as possible. Let him recall how little he is able to do in time of desolation, when he is left without such grace or consolation.

    On the other hand, one who suffers desolation should remember that by making use of the sufficient grace offered him, he can do much to withstand all his enemies. Let him find his strength in his Creator and Lord.

325.  12.  The enemy conducts himself as a woman. He is a weakling before a show of strength, and a tyrant if he has his will. It is characteristic of a woman in a quarrel with a man to lose courage and take to flight if the man shows that he is determined and fearless. However, if the man loses courage and begins to flee, the anger, vindictiveness, and rage of the woman surge up and know no bounds. In the same way, the enemy becomes weak, loses courage, and turns to flight with his seductions as soon as one leading a spiritual life faces his temptations boldly, and does exactly the opposite of what he suggests. However, if one begins to be afraid and to lose courage in temptations, no wild animal on earth can be more fierce than the enemy of our human nature. He will carry out his perverse intentions with consummate malice.

326.  13.  Our enemy may also be compared in his manner of acting to a false lover. He seeks to remain hidden and does not want to be discovered. If such a lover speaks with evil intention to the daughter of a good father, or to the wife of a good husband, and seeks to seduce them, he wants his words and solicitations kept secret. He is greatly displeased if his evil suggestions and depraved intentions are revealed by the daughter to her father, or by the wife to her husband. Then he readily sees he will not succeed in what he has begun. In the same way, when the enemy of our human nature tempts a just soul with his wiles and seductions, he earnestly desires that they be received secretly and kept secret. But if one manifests them to a confessor, or to some other spiritual person who understands his deceits and malicious designs, the evil one is very much vexed. For he knows that he cannot succeed in his evil undertaking, once his evident deceits have been revealed.

327.  14.  The conduct of our enemy may also be compared to the tactics of a leader intent upon seizing and plundering a position he desires. A commander and leader of an army will encamp, explore the fortifications and defenses of the stronghold, and attack at the weakest point. In the same way, the enemy of our human nature investigates from every side all our virtues, theological, cardinal, and moral. Where he finds the defenses of eternal salvation weakest and most deficient, there he attacks and tries to take us by storm.

328. RULES FOR DISCERNMENT OF SPIRITS
II

Further rules for understanding the different movements produced in the soul. They serve for a more accurate discernment of spirits and are more suitable for the second week
  

329.  1.  It is characteristic of God and His Angels, when they act upon the soul, to give true happiness and spiritual joy, and to banish all the sadness and disturbances which are caused by the enemy.
   It is characteristic of the evil one to fight against such happiness and consolation by proposing fallacious reasonings, subtilties, and continual deceptions.

330.  2.  God alone can give consolation to the soul without any previous cause. It belongs solely to the Creator to come into a soul, to leave it, to act upon it, to draw it wholly to the love of His Divine Majesty. I said without previous cause, that is, without any preceding perception or knowledge of any subject by which a soul might be led to such a consolation through its own acts of intellect and will.

331.  3.  If a cause precedes, both the good angel and the evil spirit can give consolation to a soul, but for a quite different purpose. The good angel consoles for the progress of the soul, that it may advance and rise to what is more perfect. The evil spirit consoles for purposes that are the contrary, and that afterwards he might draw the soul to his own perverse intentions and wickedness.

332.  4.  It is a mark of the evil spirit to assume the appearance of an angel of light. He begins by suggesting thoughts that are suited to a devout soul, and ends by suggesting his own. For example, he will suggest holy and pious thoughts that are wholly in conformity with the sanctity of the soul. Afterwards, he will endeavor little by little to end by drawing the soul into his hidden snares and evil designs.

333.  5.  We must carefully observe the whole course of our thoughts. If the beginning and middle and end of the course of thoughts are wholly good and directed to what is entirely right, it is a sign that they are from the good angel. But the course of thoughts suggested to us may terminate in something evil, or distracting, or less good than the soul had formerly proposed to do. Again, it may end in what weakens the soul, or disquiets it; or by destroying the peace, tranquility, and quiet which it had before, it may cause disturbance to the soul. These things are a clear sign that the thoughts are proceeding from the evil spirit, the enemy of our progress and eternal salvation.

334.  6.  When the enemy of our human nature has been detected and recognized by the trail of evil marking his course and by the wicked end to which he leads us, it will be profitable for one who has been tempted to review immediately the whole course of the temptation. Let him consider the series of good thoughts, how they arose, how the evil one gradually attempted to make him step down from the state of spiritual delight and joy in which he was, till finally he drew him to his wicked designs. The purpose of this review is that once such an experience has been understood and carefully observed, we may guard ourselves for the future against the customary deceits of the enemy.

335.  7.  In souls that are progressing to greater perfection, the action of the good angel is delicate, gentle, delightful. It may be compared to a drop of water penetrating a sponge.
    The action of the evil spirit upon such souls is violent, noisy, and disturbing. It may be compared to a drop of water falling upon a stone.
    In souls that are going from bad to worse, the action of the spirits mentioned above is just the reverse. The reason for this is to be sought in the opposition or similarity of these souls to the different kinds of spirits. When the disposition is contrary to that of the spirits, they enter with noise and commotion that are easily perceived. When the disposition is similar to that of the spirits, they enter silently, as one coming into his own house when the doors are open.

336.  8.  When consolation is without previous cause, as was said, there can be no deception in it, since it can proceed from God our Lord only. But a spiritual person who has received such a consolation must consider it very attentively, and must cautiously distinguish the actual time of the consolation from the period which follows it. At such a time the soul is still fervent and favored with the grace and aftereffects of the consolation which has passed. In this second period the soul frequently forms various resolutions and plans which are not granted directly by God our Lord. They may come from our own reasoning on the relations of our concepts and on the consequences of our judgments, or they may come from the good or evil spirit. Hence, they must be carefully examined before they are given full approval and put into execution.

end of excerpt of The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius

       

                We are to constantly cleanse ourselves
                    of our sins to serve God better —
                    the evil spirit wants us with
                    troubles, fears, sadness, false
                    reasoning, scruples

                The good Spirit gives us courage and
                    strength

                We are to focus on the love of God
                    focus on His Divine Mysteries

                    have joy in our vocation
                    meditate on our salvation
                    have peace
                    rest in God

                We are not to give into desolation.
                    Instead we are to focus on God — the light.
                    We are not to focus on the darkness, division, but
                    love and service of God

                We must discern where our thoughts
                    come from, not give into
                    impulses from the devil —

                We must have discipline and self control
                Ask for help to control dark,
                    destructive ways,
                    disobedience to superiors —
                    changing directions

                Be patient — pray in desolation —
                    do not act for relief

                We may be tested — must pray —
                Wait for God's favors — comforts —
                    pray in patience

                Don't give into desolation

                We depend on God's grace in desolation —
                    pray, read the Blue Book

                We must put our trust in God's power

                When satan is attacking us — He wants
                    us to give in —
                    He presses down —
                    Why give in when being attacked
                        by satan

                A spiritual advisor can see a person
                    in desolation —
                    Satan wants the person to oppose
                        a spiritual direction so
                        he can keep them under
                        his mask of trying to get
                        them to give into him.

                Satan attacks the weakest place of
                    our human nature — his
                    enemy is one who can spiritually
                    advise us

                God fills a soul with spiritual gladness.

                The devil is at war for a soul filled
                    with God — he presses in and
                    in and tries to get us to get
                    away from this spiritual
                    gladness to darkness, anger,
                    depression, lack of love,
                    no productivity, crippling.
                    hatred, division

                God wants us to love
                God wants us to have harmony

                A person who is disobedient to the
                    authority makes disharmony,
                    division with the authority —
                    then the devil tempts them through
                    pride, seeking dominance,
                    to deny their error, lie to themselves
                    and cause further disharmony through
                    their lie about their disobedience.

                Satan tempts men in their weakness
                    to act for dominance over
                    women authority rather
                    then obey the rules.

                God wants to act on our soul with His
                    favors if we ask Him —
                    God will not act
                        in a dark, sinful,
                        selfish, disobedient heart.

                We seek God and beg for grace and receive
                    Him with a humble spirit —
                    unless He chooses to do
                    something to us like He did
                    in St. Paul's blindness
                    with a special grace.

                The Holy Spirit acts in light and doing
                    good, forgiveness, harmony,
                    peace, obedience

                    the devil wants the soul to
                    do evil and to perish and be dark.

                The devil comes at first as an
                    angel of light (a good idea)
                    then he works later in his
                    evil ways to try to deceive
                    the soul and lead them to evil.

                    In the beginning the evil one lures
                through acting like it is for a good
                deed — then lures the soul into
                disobedience and darkness once he
                can get them to give into his
                crafty scheme.

                    We MUST see the action —
                beginning, middle and end —
                Not get on automatic pilot and
                say —

                    "Oh a good work — lets go and
                then disobey as we commit
                sin and give into an evil act or
                one against God's will"

                    We must discern our thoughts
                beginning, middle and end —
                All 3 must be right to be from
                the Holy Spirit — but if dark
                in the middle then it is from
                the evil spirit.

                    Look at our reasoning —
                How we were to do something,
                but the devil came said
                "Oh do this good act" but
                    in the end we didn't do
                    what we were told to do or
                    needed to do and instead didn't
                    do God's will —

                We were lead astray by a good
                    deed that was not what
                    God wanted us to do.

                The good Spirit moves like water
                    on a sponge — the bad one
                    is harsh, violent, sneaky,
                    lying, deceptive —
                    Rain on a stone

                Some go from bad to worse, day after
                    day — they keep control that
                    is not theirs — they won't
                    let go. They rationalize incorrectly
                    "I'm right" "I disobey authority"

                The devil can come looking like it is
                    consolation from the Holy Spirit,
                    and in fact it is from the angel of darkness —
                    the person may rationalize
                    "oh now I am seeing lights,
                    getting messages" —
                    just because lights are present,
                    the devil can lure through false signs and messages.

                If signs and messages have error or are
                    opposed to God's way, the commandments, the Word,
                    the Church, we know they are not from God.
                    We must discern messages and lights.

                Lights and messages are never opposed to God's ways,
                    the commandments, the Word, the basic teachings
                    of the Church (Catechism etc.)
