                Jesus: Awaken My heart for you miss the
                beauty I give — you in your hustle and
                bustle — Life is full in so many ways
                here on the earth and you miss the
                gentle touch of the Father's love because
                your hearts are hard and controlling —

                    A little child sees with eyes of
                wonder and yet they cannot have their
                way and demand they do not share — Did
                you watch a child scream "I want it"
                when others have it — From the earliest
                age - they want what others have and they
                will demand their way if they can get
                it — causing a "ruckus" to do
                so, a temper tantrum —

                    I watch you and I teach you about life,
                about Myself —

                    I teach you about Myself in My
                creation — The air can be clear — the
                breeze gentle — the temperature so
                very perfect — the sky blue as blue
                as blue can be and yet a dark night
                can come — children playing in joy
                can scream in selfishness for
                something as simple as a bottle
                cap - one has and they do not —

                    The eyes of jealousy — the eyes
                to want to possess —

                    Oh child nothing here on earth
                can make you completely full — you
                reach in and touch others — only
                to know the depth is in Me — the
                depth cannot be reached — You will
                not be full unless you inherit
                eternal life — You always have
                that desire for more — left incomplete
                here below — It is how it is —
                You were created to know happiness
                is in God — the fullness of life in
                heaven, only —

                    Reach for this life I give you
                here below — experience every moment
                in bliss — taste it — in joy and suffering —
                Live the mystery of My life, death and resurrection in
                your lives

                    Taste as I desire you to taste —
                taste from the cup of a beautiful
                sun lit day; taste from the gnawing
                of wanting love — completeness — wanting
                only that which God can give — taste
                the Eucharist — know the grace of
                confession, the grace of the sacraments —
                taste from the fountain I give you —

                    Open to its gifts — a fool closes
                down — goes inside — focuses on self —
                screams "I want my way and I will
                not share, I will not change" — A
                fool I tell you —

                    I give you a sharing in My life —
                I fill you with Myself when you are
                open —

                    You can say "I am a closed jar"
                How much of a beautiful beverage
                can fill a jar — sealed tight with
                a lid

 

 

                    no fluid goes in the jar

                    OPEN YOURSELF

                A person closed down — looking
                    inward — being isolated — hating
                    not loving — is closed down

                A heart withered

 

 

                I extend My hand to you —
                I say open —

                Your life lived — learning how
                    to open to love — a life time

  

 

                On the tree a sign said 

 

 

                Lovers of God seek His will

                    Hearts are red

                    Apples are red look like a heart 

 

                You can eat the forbidden fruit

                Extend over the line — hating your brothers
                                                provoking your brothers
                                                lying about your sins
                                                holding back —
                                                not being a team player
                                                possessive —

                Saying "I won't share"

                    "I want what I want"

                Coveting riches —

                Holding back your talents for vain
                    glory --

  

  

                AGAINST GOD'S WILL

                    eating the apple
                    rebellion to God's will


                R. Holy — obedience —
                    in heaven perfect obedience
                        to God's will
                    GOD IS FIRST
                    LOVE IS FIRST
                    OTHERS are related with as God WILLS

                GOD WILLS —
                    WE relate with others in respect
                    WE respect God's will
                    WE take responsibilities for our sins

                We work with others as God wills

                    IN LOVE

                We don't rebel and eat the apple
                We are not selfish
                We are Selfless as God intends


                We are on a journey
                We don't know one way and like
                    a woodpecker — peck to
                    get our way
                    destroying the wood in the process 

 

                OPEN ——> GOD'S WILL

                                    LOVE

                LIVING for God's glory
                                (not vain glory)

 

 

                God's Plan

                Holy

                Having a heart like Jesus —

                Song: Give Me Your Heart, Oh Jesus

                Song: God's Love

                We can only live this day —

                Living in the moment —
                    according to God's will —
                    in love is
                    being an open jar —

               

               


                This lady is shut down —
                Closed in


 

Matthew 5: 20-26

‘For I tell you, if your uprightness does not surpass that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never get into the kingdom of Heaven.

    ‘You have heard how it was said to our ancestors, You shall not kill; and if anyone  does kill he must answer for it before the court. But I say this to you, anyone who is  angry with a brother will answer for it before the court; anyone who calls a brother "Fool"  will answer for it before the Sanhedrin; and anyone who calls him "Traitor" will answer for it in hell fire. So then, if you are bringing your offering to the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your offering there before the altar, go and be reconciled with your brother first, and then come back and present your offering. Come to terms with your opponent in good time while you are still on the way to the court with him, or he may hand you over to the judge and the judge to the officer, and you will be thrown into prison. In truth I tell you, you will not get out till you have paid the last penny.

 

                Mary on July 13, 1917 showed the 3
                    little children a vision of hell,
                    and she said

 

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

July 13, 1917

    "You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish, in the world, devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.

    "The war (World War I, then raging) is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light [January 2, 1938], know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. (12)

    "To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the five first Saturdays. If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed....

    "But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world." (13)

                Mary said to me

                    "Please, please the souls are
                        dropping into hell like rain"

 

                Excerpts from October 13, 1996 rosary - Coronation

  1. 5. Think vividly of the moment of death. There is a soul at this moment on the edge of death. How did they live their life? Think of the world today. Is the world living according to the way that God has told us that we must live? He told us that we must love God and love one another. There is a soul at this moment on the edge of death. Where will this soul go? Did the soul love God? Did it matter about his clothes and his house and all his riches? I heard Mary, Our Mother, call out time and time and time again about the souls that were going into hell. It is like the Fatima documentary-she called and people did not heed what she said and there was World War II. Mary does not appear as she once appeared and she has ceased giving messages as she once did. She still gives messages but they are not as many. She says that we are not listening to the messages that she has given and that she cannot hold back the hand of her Son any longer.

  2. 6. This is the good news: if we do what Mary tells us at Fatima, we will have peace. There will be the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of her Immaculate Heart in which souls will fervently love Jesus with the greatest love. Her plan is so simple but Satan has blocked this plan. Satan has blocked these rosary messages and meditations. We must pray that we can circulate the messages of Jesus and Mary to the world that is hungry and in need of help.

  3. 7. One day soon we will be with God in heaven, forever and ever.

  4. 8. Wrapped in the embrace of the Almighty God for all eternity. Heaven is a place of love for the Almighty God is love. We will be satisfied. We will know love. We will be at peace.
    But, hell is a place where there is no love, there is no community, there is isolation, there is longing for God for all eternity.
    He is alive, He is alive and He is with us this day. You must spread this message to the ends of the earth.

  5. 9. Mary:
    My little children, I call you children because you are My children, willful in your ways. I have called to you to pray My rosary and to spread the rosary to the hurting children in this world. I am asking you on this special day that you carry the rosary to as many souls as possible. I will aid you in all efforts to spread the rosaries to the world. Read these meditations to the elderly in the Nursing Homes, teach them about the power of the rosary, bring the rosary to the children, tell them about our lives, about our love for them.
    I am Mary, your Mother, I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.

Ending Message:

Jesus:
How tenderly I love you, My beloved ones. I am Jesus. I have called you this day for this special meeting. I have called you, My apostles. Will you go into the darkness? Will you spread the message of My love? Will you carry the rosary into the world? Will you touch the hearts of those that are hurting and in pain? Will you be My apostles of love? I am calling you to love God and to love one another, to be one in your hearts, to put aside all hatred and bitterness within your heart, to not give into the tauntings of Satan to divide you, to always operate in love, to focus on God. Let your hearts be filled with love.

                Closing down —

                    In Matthew it says "Fool"
                        Jesus used the word fool
                            to me then told me to
                            quote Matthew —

 

                From the Priestly Newsletter 1999 Issue 2
 

 

  • "Mother Teresa’s answer was like a flash of lightning in my darkness. I suddenly knew the truth about myself."18

  • "To know God in the world requires knowing him by heart. To know God by heart is the purpose of a contemplative discipline. It is a very hard discipline, especially for those of us who are ‘heady’ people. But if we are serious about the task of ministry, we must be willing to engage in the tough and often agonizing struggle to break through all our mental defenses and know our God by heart.

    "Let us not underestimate the intensity of this struggle. Surrounded by books, papers and professors, and inundated by lectures, talks, presentations, chats, and chitchat, we are constantly in danger of letting God’s Word become caught in the network of our clever distinctions, elaborate arguments, and sheer verbosity. As ministers of the Word of God we urgently need a discipline of contemplative prayer…

  • "Contemplative prayer requires that we listen, that we let God speak to us when he wants and in the way he wants. This is difficult for us precisely because it means allowing God to say what we might not want to hear. But if we listen long and deeply, God will reveal himself to us as a soft breeze or a still, small voice; he will offer himself to us in gentle compassion."19

  • "Christians are called to bear witness to the truth that God has gathered all people into one family. Yet wherever we look we see the devastating fear people have of one another. Fear between races, religions, nations, continents. Fear between rich and poor, North and South, East and West. Wherever this fear rules division breeds leading to hatred, violence, destruction and war…

    "We need new eyes to see and new ears to hear the truth of our unity, a unity which cannot be perceived by our broken, sinful, anxious hearts. Only a heart filled with perfect love can perceive the unity of humanity. This requires divine perception. God sees his people as one, as belonging to the same family and living in the same house. God wants to share this divine perception with us. By sending the only beloved son to live and die for us all, God wants to open our eyes so that we can see that we belong together in the embrace of God’s perfect love.

    "Living in the intimacy of God’s house, we gradually come to know the mysterious truth that the God who loves us with a perfect love includes all people in that love without diminishing in any way the unique quality of God’s love for each individual person."
    20

 

Various Thoughts

  • We read from a spiritual journal: "We cannot have deep intimacy with Jesus if we only give him part of ourselves. We think we are holding on to things we need when in reality we are blocking that which we most desire deep within our hearts—profound union with Jesus. There is only one way to achieve this union. We must give Jesus what He wants. In this lies our true peace, and only in this."

  • Isolation allows a person to stay locked in his or her imperfections. Relating to others according to God’s will helps us to grow to be more like Christ. We can find it very difficult at times to interact with others because the interaction is calling us to die to old behavior patterns which interfere with our relating to others as we should. It is through prayer and love, through God’s grace acting within us, that, in dying more and more to our imperfections, we will grow in greater oneness.

    God intends us to walk hand in hand, interacting, and depending on one another. When we are hurt and bleeding because of interaction with others, many times we wish to close our arms and close the door to others. At these times let us look at Jesus on the cross, His arms outstretched. He continued to love even those who crucified Him. He did not close His arms. He hung, arms outstretched to the end.

    We must keep our eyes on the goal. We must keep our arms outstretched in loving surrender to Jesus. Many times we are weary and are tempted not to so act. In loving interaction with others, our brothers and sisters help us hold our arms outstretched.

    When we begin to think, "I don’t need you, it is Jesus and I, I can do it alone," we are closing our arms. We obviously need God to accomplish our God-given destiny, but it is not only God that we must love. In the normal progression of love, there must be healthy interaction with others. This is the way of Jesus. In love we help each other live according to the Father’s plan. We help each other keep our arms outstretched. We grow more and more in Christ’s ways as we learn to love. The more we die to our imperfect ways of loving, the more we merge toward oneness with each other in Christ Jesus, Our Lord and Master.

Relationship with Members of the Church

e) Relationship with Members of the Church

There is but one true Church of Christ. Yet this one Church has three different states of existence. There is the pilgrim Church, the Church of this world, composed of members who have received the grace of Christ and strive for its development. They have not yet obtained the goal of their efforts, as have the members of the heavenly Church, who enjoy God in eternal happiness. The Church suffering is an intermediate state of existence necessary for those who had not achieved the required purification as members of the pilgrim Church. Although there are these three phases of the Church’s existence, there is a profound union existing between all the members. All these members possess the same basic life of grace in Christ, and this common life establishes the most intimate bonds of love. In our preceding chapter, we discussed the pilgrim Church. Let us now consider the Church suffering and the heavenly Church.

The members of the Church suffering are those who have departed from this life in an incomplete state of Christian development. Their development is incomplete in the sense that grace has not fully taken possession of them, and, as a result, they are yet closed in upon themselves to a greater or lesser degree. They as yet cannot open themselves out in complete love to the Triune God in the beatific vision. They must undergo a further purification, a purification which could have been achieved upon earth with merit. Now the purification must be achieved with no merit attached. The pain of this purification is mixed with the certain expectation of achieving the vision of God. We can hasten the advent of this vision for this people by the offering of prayers and other good works. Scripture itself refers to our action on behalf of those in purgatory in Chapter 12 of the Second Book of Maccabees beginning with verse 38.

The members of the heavenly Church are those in whom the life of grace has taken full possession and has reached its completion in the life of glory. Faith now is unnecessary, as the light of glory gives the human intellect a new strength and capacity for seeing God face-to-face. While the Christian was a wayfarer, he received the imprint of the indwelling Trinity as he shared in God’s own life. Now in heaven that grace-life and possession of God reaches its completion—the absolute completion is not achieved, however, until the resurrection of the body. The divine persons give Themselves to the beatified in a profound union far surpassing that of the indwelling of the Trinity experienced here below.

This life of heaven is still the Christ-life, for just as we possess a share in Trinitarian life here below as mediated by Christ, and exercise this grace-life as structured by Him, so also in heaven is the mediation of Christ present. In the words of Rahner, "One always sees the Father through Jesus. Just as immediately as this, for the directness of the vision of God is not a denial of the mediatorship of Christ as man."14 And not only does the humanity of Christ unite the blessed to God, but also, in some way, to the whole of creation. This is merely a completion of what is begun here below, namely, the union with Christ in His humanity establishing the Christian in a special relationship with God, with other men, and with the whole of creation. We have a glimpse, therefore, of the fullness of life which members of the heavenly Church possess.

The heavenly Church, as St. Thomas says, is the true Church.15 The Church of this earth and the Church of purgatory are, each in its own way, reaching out in loving hope for the heavenly Jerusalem. Vatican II puts it very simply: "The Church, to which we are called in Christ Jesus, and in which we acquire sanctity through the grace of God, will attain her full perfection only in the glory of heaven."16

The members of the heavenly Church can help us in living our life of grace until we too share its fullness with them. Their power of intercession on our behalf is but another ramification of the communal aspect of Christianity. We are meant to help others grow in Christ. We, in turn, are intended by God to receive aid from others—yes, from members of the heavenly Church, as well as from those with whom we dwell here below.

Not only can we be aided by the saints’ intercession, but the example of the canonized saints can also be of great value to us. They have concretely proved that full holiness is possible. Such an inspiration is of real worth when we are tempted to think that Christian sanctity in its higher degrees is impossible of attainment. Moreover, the canonized saints, in their diversity, teach us that there are many authentic versions of Christian holiness. They can be innovators in showing us that there are numerous possibilities in assimilating the mystery of Christ, although the basic assimilation remains the same for all Christians of all times. In the opinion of Rahner this is one of the chief roles the canonized saints exert in the life of the Church.17

                CLOSING DOWN IS
                    BEING A FOOL
                    SPIRITUALLY

 

From November 30, 2003

Jesus speaks:    Sin entered the world.

                        Satan wants to isolate you, A porcupine
                    does not make a good friend to share a chair
                    with.

                        One who throws darts soon will find the field
                    around him has cleared and he stands alone.

                        Oh My people, I watch by day and night. A
                    person who is dysfunctional may try to gain power
                    in abusive ways.

                        A person very weak and alone, not loving themselves
                    may want to make another under them and
                    subject to them.

                        A person not having success in life may want
                    to have power over others or one other, he feels if
                    he can do things over them he has not lost his
                    power completely. He feels little and weak himself,
                    unable to stand on his own, he can project his
                    problems on another and in a sick way attempt
                    to solve his problems through this projection.
                    He does not see himself the wounded person —-
                    he see the other person wounded and he will
                    help them, they are sick, he sees himself as
                    "strong and "not wounded" because he projects
                    his weakness on another. He may use force,
                    aggravation, harassment to try to keep the
                    other stuck under him.
                        A victory for him is to beat the other emotionally to
                    the ground and he towers over with his whip.
                    Very sick, indeed, very cruel.
                        If the sheep was in the cage with the man with
                    the whip, why would he stay if the sheep could
                    escape.

                        Some people want attention and stay in
                    relationships that hurt them, others see themselves
                    too weak to fight the problem, abuse cannot be accepted
                    by the one on the end of a serious problem
                    with a person's wrath.

                        Loving and forgiving in married life and
                    relationships are essential, but a serious
                    problem where one person is tremendously
                    sick and plays terrible power-over games
                    with a small one must be addressed.
                    Size, age etc can be an issue.

                        Hell is a place of total isolation. The
                    devil wants people to get into this mode of
                    acting out sick behavior. A person can be
                    a "sniper" and kill others —- there are always
                    issues of inner insecurity, coupled with
                    hatred, weakness, anger, the person usually
                    lives in a mind not rooted in reality, placing
                    people in their movies in their head as they
                    so choose and acting in that world between
                    their ears —- which is not the "real world."

                    end of excerpt

 

                The men that put Jesus to death
                    were weak
                    they picked on Jesus

                Acting in hate is bad —

                Hell is full of people who lived to hate —

                God is love —

                In hell there is    ISOLATION
                                        PAIN
                                        HATE
                                        DIVISION

                Heaven is the fullness of LIFE

                In Heaven there is Perfection in
                    obedience to the Father's will —

                We are here to prepare for this —

                Anyone with the love of God in
                    their heart is joyful —
                    going out to others

                IN one mind and heart with
                    Jesus

  

                Always focused on heaven
                Peace is doing God's will
                Harmony with God and others —

                Building unity

                Christ died on the cross
                    for all of us —

                Christ gave us the Church —

                Through His pierced Heart the
                    Church was born

                The Body of Christ

   

From August 24, 2006

Messenger:       We are always focused on heaven —
                            focused on our salvation and
                            the salvation of others
                            etc.

                            peace is found in doing
                                God's will in love.

                        See the harmony in God's creation —

                        See how beautiful all things work
                            together —
                            see the little berries, fruits
                            fed by the earth
                            watered by the rain
                            receiving sun light.

                        See the day filled with light.
                        See the night dark for sleeping.

                        See the order in the universe —

                        See how things work together in
                            God's creation —

                        See the goodness of God

                        Sing:  Taste and See

                        Do you want to focus on the balcony
                            or the dirt?

                        The devil wants to stop those living
                            to help build up the Kingdom —
                            see a cannon and the devil
                            behind it —
                            sticking in his fire from hell
                                with a pitch fork and
                            he wants souls to get shot
                                out of their relationships —
                            he wants division!!

                            He wants you to fall
                                in his trap.

Matthew 13: 14-15

    Listen and listen, but never understand! 
    Look and look, but never perceive! 
    This people’s heart has grown coarse, 
    their ears dulled, 
        they have shut their eyes tight 
    to avoid using their eyes to see, 
        their ears to hear, 
    their heart to understand, 
    changing their ways 
        and being healed by me.

 


                Evil lurks in a man's heart it
                    grows like yeast —
                    when we give into unloving
                    ways we become more and
                    more — SHUT DOWN —
                    more and more hateful and dark

                When we live a virtuous life —
                    praying for the increase of faith —
                    hoping in God —
                    and loving God and others —
                    we grow to be more
                    perfected like our heavenly
                    Father is perfect —

   

John 14: 23

Jesus replied: 

    Anyone who loves me will keep my word, 
    and my Father will love him, 
    and we shall come to him 
    and make a home in him. 

   

                Being Open in Mind and Heart —

                Jeremiah tells us there are 2 ways
                    of living our life —
                    one way to live as God wants —
                    the other is to do it our own way —

    

Genesis 3: 19

   By the sweat of your face
   will you earn your food,
   until you return to the ground,
   as you were taken from it.
   For dust you are
   and to dust you shall return.’

 

John 19: 34

one of the soldiers pierced his side with a lance; and immediately there came out blood and water.

 

     

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusHoly Spirit

June 30, 1994

R. Dear Spirit, oh, Holy Spirit, how little I tell You of my love! You are indeed a Person. You are God. It is through Your gifts that I receive the knowledge of God, to know, love and serve Him more. Open me, oh, Spirit. Open this closed heart of mine and fill me with the fire of Your love. Impart to me the tongues of fire I need to do the work God wants me to do. Give me Your love so I can love God more than myself. Help me to surrender to You and let You live and dwell in my heart in such union!

Oh, Spirit of God, open my eyes so I can see more and more with Your gifts what I need to see to serve and to love You. Help me to love my brothers as You want me to, to know how to love as God wants me to.

Mary, you are the spouse of the Holy Spirit. It is through Him that Jesus was conceived in your womb. Draw me to your Spouse, the Holy Spirit, to greater union with Him. Help me to love the Holy Spirit more and more through your Immaculate Heart.

Help me to grow in my intimacy with You, oh, Holy Spirit. Help me to hear what You want to tell me. You are the love between the Father and the Son. Help me to know the fire of this love. I want to know more Your love for me. I want to love You more, to grow in deeper union with You.

Mary, help me to love the Holy Spirit through your Immaculate Heart.

Father, Son, Holy Spirit: three Persons in one God. Each Person to be loved individually, yet God to be loved as One, in union with Mary! Such burning in my heart for each Person, a burning to love God, three in one, through Mary's Immaculate Heart.

I could spend such joyful hours dwelling on this immense love. God is present and truly in our midst and in our hearts. I cannot love my brothers as God wants me to if I do not know God. When I am filled with the love of God, then I can love my brothers as He wants: "that you are willing to lay down your life for your brother." It takes that intimacy, that oneness, to know God, to love as God wants me to love.

To love you, my brother, I must constantly try to be more united with the one, true, magnificent God. Through Mary, I learn to love God more intimately.

Open me, oh, Spirit of the living God. Open my heart to love, to the fire of Your love. Enkindle it deep in my heart. The love of the one, triune God!

Oh, Mary, help me to love God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, through your Heart.

Praise God in His magnificence. Praise God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit! Let us pour out our abundant love, through Mary, on Them. Teach us to love You, God. Help us, in our littleness, to give You love through Mary's sinless Heart. I can grow in my intimacy with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

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)
