The Novena Rosary Mysteries  
for March 10th are Glorious.

                         

Given March 8, 2007

            Pray Thy Will be Done.

    I had a dream two days ago and I saw the altar with eyes
unveiled like the vision of seeing the celestial lights of heaven
where there was like a gold misty - veil before me several times across
the whole sanctuary - August 13, 1996 and again in the third main vision
of 1996 - 1st March 26, 1996, then 2 other visions - one Holy Saturday
Mass and then after that —

            When I saw Jesus transfigured early January 1996 - the same thing —
            but - this dream I had morning of March 7, 2007 was this
        I saw the altar as I see, then the reality of focusing on
        Eucharist with a clarity of the gifts given — so very
        great and I was able to tune in as one trying to set
        the focus on something — then it was a focus that led
        me clearly to more of knowing the reality attached
        deeply to the Divine God, the sacrifice — the altar.

            This is hard to explain that which has transformed me
        more through a greater revelation of seeing with eyes
        unveiled.

            I speak thus - when Mary appeared that which
        was around me faded — my rapturous embrace
        being in that connection of touching those on the
        other side — not like I am not one with God every moment
        one with Mary — one with the saints — but one is not the same
        relationship in my soul - so deeply to give me
        such a revelation of God and His saints knowing
        how limited the grasp is of its splendor.

            It is indeed like the lightening on the dark night
        when it flashes and I see for the split second the
        wires, the house tops, tree tops and as quick as
        it comes - I cannot gaze at it for in the split
        second the night comes rushing in and then it
        is gone.   

            But you know it is there behind the darkness.

            With the revelation like I am trying to describe
        I am changed — etched on my soul — knowledge
        imparted in heart and soul of being more in this
        grasp of seeing with clearer vision —

            I think of this — many vitamins may have fillers

        This revelation is with fillers removed —   

        How do I gaze upon the altar, the Mass, and let go of
        the imperfect vision where
            1) I see God with my imperfect vision - my
                vision is more focused because of the
                revelation
            2) imperfect vision of others to sit at Mass - arms
                    raised focused on what others think of us,
                    what I think through my tainted vision —

                    This being removed more my imperfect vision and
                    seeing with greater purity as Mary —
                    consecrating our hearts to Jesus and Mary can help
                    us to see with this purer vision —
                    but also - special grace as He acts on my soul —

 

A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

     Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

  

                    But once a revelation is given - it is etched in my soul
                        and my vision is changed — I am changed —
                        the Divine bridegroom gives me these gifts
                        of embracing the gift at hand in the Mass.

                    I want to let go of this filler I usually may experience
                        of what I am thinking with any tainted vision
                        and see with the greater knowledge of knowing
                        oneness in the body of Christ —

                    It is action in my soul — not a cognitive process - I
                        direct and put together

                    He acts in my soul, changing my heart, letting
                        me see greater reality of my imperfect
                        vision — His perfect vision

                3) The third being my imperfect vision of myself —

                        rather than realizing the reality of how intimately
                        God gives Himself to us in the Eucharist —

                        even knowing slightly what it is to be fed at
                            the table of the Lord by His Body and Blood.

                        Action from the heart —
                            oneness in this great summit of heavenly
                                love where God gives Himself to me —
                                a sinful creature

                        But - but - my vision is impaired — limited

                    So why write of this at all —

                        for we see as in this tainted vision — the Mass —
                            like the bottom of an old milk bottle
                            that still has lots of milk clouding our view.

                    Well in the dream - all that filler was removed —
                        seeing so clearly the Eucharist and not having
                        that tainted vision too much of myself
                        and others and God — so
                        the focus is more purified —
                        less tainted —

                    I do not mean to indicate here in anyway I
                        have seen with absolute perfection —
                        I see as in a mirror - a reflection —

                    Yes at Mass once I saw the priest so vividly in the
                        glass where we had replaced the image
                        head —

                        It was the Mass reflected.

                    That which I wish to describe I am describing that
                        without perfect vision, but as one who sees
                        more clearly - more and more - as one focusing
                        on some infinite treasure.

                    Do you see high density — it is so much clearer than
                        any that went before and yet it is greater and
                        greater vision —

                        Nothing is as good as the real thing.

                    Now the Mass — the filler removed —
                        the mind wandering with tainted thought —
                        the imperfect vision of oneself - others and
                        God — less imperfect —

                    To be in that heavenly embrace seeing as it really
                        is more clearly — knowing the drama taking
                        place —

                        partaking more purely in the sacrifice of
                        Calvary sacramentally made present.

                    Do you know —

                    I know only as He imparts to me greater vision
                    I know more as He acts on my soul.

 


  

A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

-God's Blue Book, December 27, 1995

   

                    Giving of oneself in this heavenly banquet.

                The Mass is a love affair.
                The Mass is a love affair with God.

                Mary said

                    "I stood beneath the cross of my Son
                    and my heart was in such anguish for
                    the little ones that would be lost forever."

                We come to the altar united to the sacrifice of
                     the New Adam —

                We lay down our lives

                We give our hearts to Jesus and Mary in love

                We are one in Their Hearts

                We beg for grace for the souls

                We are united to the souls of this earth

                How so deeply — we know the precious souls in
                    such love because we are so one
                    with Jesus in

                     this sacrifice of Calvary —
                     sacramentally made present

 

John 19: 25-27

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then to the disciple he said, ‘This is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

 

                This to me is a beginning of how we lay down our
                    lives in the Morning Offering as members of
                    the body of Christ —

                    united to the Mass all day

                    doing His will

                We have only scratched the surface

                I can waste so much good prayer time worrying
                    at Mass when I should let go to Jesus —

                Worrying all day and not being so one with God —
                    living that mystical marriage as the
                    Spouse of Christ — helping to bring
                    forth fruit for the Kingdom

                Baptism - being commissioned in living to help
                    promote His Kingdom —
                    living to go out and witness for the sake of souls
                    laying down one's life as a sacrifice for the
                        sake of souls —

                    Living according to the Father's will in love

                Sacrifice — Morning Offering - laying down our
                    lives as members of the body of Christ
                    for the sake of souls

 

 

                Singing this song and letting go of our imperfect
                    fillers - that block our purity
                    in prayer as living as members of
                    the body of Christ

                    To see with eyes unveiled
                    To know the reality of Christ with us —

                    To live a deeper commitment to our baptismal
                        promise by consecrating our hearts to
                        Jesus and Mary

                    To live more deeply as members of the Body of Christ
                        united to the Mass going on around the world

                    Sing:  Come Holy Spirit

                    To see with eyes unveiled
                    To be open to His revelation

                    To live deeply united to Him

                The more we live in Him —
                The more deeply His Word is alive in us
                The more we comprehend His Word
                The more we know and love God
                The more we go to the Eucharist — the more we are
                     saturated with His grace

                The more we go to the Eucharist and love Him the more
                    we dwell in Him and He in us - the more
                    pure our actions.

                Holy Spirit fill us with the fire of Your love.

                We ask for perfection in our souls to make us
                   holy, holy souls likened to God.

                We pray for the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit
                   Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge
                         Piety and Fear of the Lord.

 

 


Excerpt from August 12, 1999

Messenger: I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.

All of my experiences are recorded in notebooks, rosary meditations and materials spread throughout the Ministry on computers, discs, etc. I do not know how to use a computer.

There are so many things that have happened, but the experiences and dates are engraved in my soul. I write from all I remember of these experiences. On the morning of August 12, 1996, I was told to go to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. There in those early morning hours Mary appeared all night. I remember the darkness of the Sorrowful Mother Chapel, black, and I only saw the light of Mary. She appeared in that same glorious light of hers, light like fluorescent, but not like that at all because it is like nothing I have ever seen. I cried out to her and begged the Father to please help me to do what They had asked me, and all of us, to do. I felt I prayed as never before.Sorrowful Mother Statue at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center

The next morning of the 13th of August Mary appeared again in the same place for several hours in the same exact setting in that white light in the darkened Sorrowful Mother Chapel in the corner. In the late afternoon of the 13th, I would go to the Sorrowful Mother Chapel again.

The Eucharist was exposed and the whole front of the chapel was covered with a celestial aura and she appeared again. This time the light and the aura were a golden light, almost like a gold glistening veil across the whole front of the chapel in front of the exposed Eucharist and before Mary. I did not want to leave there. I drove to the rosary at Tom's farm, the mikes for the rosary were missing. The younger shepherds had to go to the store to get some mikes. John Weickert was there for the first time on the farm. I asked him to say the 7 Sorrows of Mary. What appeared to me to be a mixed-up situation without the mikes and equipment turned out to be a night of great grace. I didn't know all what was happening. Here is an account of what happened to two others there at the rosary. It is accounted because Father Carter asked that it be written down.

April 6, 1996

Saturday (April 6, 1996, Holy Saturday) I saw the whole wall adorned in the brightest light, St. Joseph was surrounded in this thick light, like comes from a fire, like a celestial mirror. I don't know how to describe it, it is as a mirror with light in it, but no light like our human eyes have seen. I looked at St. Joseph and he was pushing the Child Jesus out at us, the Baby coming out glistening in light. The statue of the resurrected Lord was alive. All the flowers were topped with this light. This is how it was and is now at All Saints Church. It is as if heaven has poured its light on the earth and it tops the flowers. All distinct lines are gone. In their place is light. So all I look at has a splendor.

    

 

 

 

On April 3, 1996, at All Saints Church I wrote:

    I was at All Saints, April 3, at the 6:45 a.m. Mass. At 7:00 a.m. the bells rang at the Consecration of the Mass. The Sacrifice of Calvary rings out all over the world and I can be joined at every moment to this Sacrifice. We unite to this Sacrifice praying for ourselves and our brothers. The bell tolls at every moment I live. Whether I am doing dishes, being with my family, or whatever, I make this my offering united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being offered around the world. I make my Morning Offering. United to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being celebrated around the world, I give myself completely to the Father in the name of Jesus in the Holy Spirit with all the angels and saints. I make this offering of my life to help in the salvation of souls. My offering is most pure and holy as I unite to the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

    What is pleasing to my Father is that at every second I am trying to live in His will operating in love. My heroic or mundane tasks are most important as I give them in sacrifice united to Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

    I live in this way, always united to the sacrifice of Calvary being made sacramentally present on our altars around the world through the hands of His beloved priests.

    This is the moment of sacrifice. The bells toll all over the earth and Christ, Chief-Priest and Victim, gives Himself in the Mass through the hands of the priest. I give myself in love to help in the work of redemption.

Jesus: It is most difficult to present any description similar to the original mystical vision. The sketches provide a basis for reference. Nothing in words or pictures even comes close to the original experience. I wish these writings and sketches to appear that you will more fully experience my love through these revelations. Pictures are concrete descriptions of true realities. The sketches provided are more to My liking, employing the element of mystery, for nothing here on this earth will ever show even minutely the splendor of a genuine mystical vision. In expressing the visions in concrete pictures, the element of mystery is overshadowed. You must pray for grace to experience that element of mystery in these writings, knowing the infinitude of the mystery of God can never be expressed concretely through words and pictures. It is through grace that one experiences that which I reveal here.

Messenger: God is the ultimate mystery and He reveals Himself to man as He so chooses. Man must be open, soft and supple, ready for His touch.

April 9, 1996

Messenger:  I went to All Saints Church - saw with eyes unveiled- such an aura of celestial light. I went to Communion, had the presence of God, wanted to cry so hard from the awe of it all. I was not feeling good and He wrapped me as only He can do in His heavenly embrace. My soul sang out and the vision began. My eyes now are still seeing with this effect. He, as it were, lifts up the hard, defined lines and I see with a celestial aura. This is what I see when I see a vision....

    After Communion I had this immense presence of God. I knew a vision was coming. My vision gets a certain way. The distinct lines I see before me begin to disappear and are smudged with light.

    Then I saw again the celestial lights of heaven. It was as though light was spilled from heaven and landed on the flowers and the corners of everything. The Eucharist took on an immense warmth and I knew God truly present in this room.

    I saw with eyes unveiled in my soul and in the room. The room had a celestial aura, it no longer looked defined and clear. It was bathed in a gentle, celestial film and all I saw I wanted to tell to those around me. But I was so caught in His embrace that my mouth did not want to move.

    Grace is being spilled on the earth. I have seen this celestial light come upon the altar of sacrifice, the monstrance and the cross. The vision on March 26 (1996) I will never forget as long as I live. The light is so thick and so intense as if the heavens open in these cracks of light and there is a depth far beyond that which any mind can envision.

    The sky opened up and it rained down its grace. It opens when hearts are one in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Excerpt from December 22, 1998

Messenger:    On January 9, 1996, I went to pray. The snow was so bad the street was blocked to Holy Cross-Immaculata. I finally managed to find a place to park and trudged through the snow, panting with joy to be with Our Lord in the tabernacle there. When I arrived all I could do was kneel before the Sacred Heart statue and pour out myself to Him.

Please show a picture of the tabernacle and the Sacred Heart statue.

From my writings of January 9, 1996, I write:

"I was engulfed again in my love of God and cried so hard because I love Him so much. In this intimate act of giving myself totally to Him, my whole act was in emptying myself, wanting only to be lost in Him and united forever to Him in this most blissful moment. I turned myself over and was lost in Him, knowing His presence with me and knowing His deep love. The world stopped and I existed in Him, longing to forever stay there, so this moment would never end."

"I touched you, God and in this embrace I knew your unending love. I saw Your Body as if it was transfigured and glowing in light and I was lost in Thee."

This is how it began. I would see a great reflective light, as if from a mirror, on the eaves of the church in the front of Holy Cross-Immaculata and His Body was changed in the most brilliant light before my eyes. I cannot describe what I saw, nor have I ever seen it except in this vision and two that would follow the next two days. Jesus was transfigured before my eyes.

The date of January 9, 1996, when it first happened, was the same date January 9, 1994, when I genuflected before the crucifix and the altar at St. Gertrude's and the Father spoke; Blue Book II-page 18, January 9, 1994: "This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased."

On January 9, 1996, I would see Jesus transfigured before me in the statue.

At the end of December, on the 5th of the month, 1996, I would see Him in the back of the church on the crucifix at the point of death.

On August 20, 1997, I would see the glorified Lord as He appeared in magnificent light transfigured on the crucifix at St. Gertrude's church in Madeira, Cincinnati, Ohio.

Holy Spirit Novena

DAILY NOVENA PRAYERS

Opening Prayer

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Dear Father, we come to You in the name of Jesus, in union with Him in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in the Holy Spirit. We come to You united to the Child Jesus of Good Health and the Infant of Prague. We come to You in the perfect, sinless heart of Our Mother Mary, asking her powerful intercession, uniting ourselves to her holy tears. We come to You united to all the angels and saints, and the souls in purgatory.

Prayer for Holy Spirit

We pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on us, to be baptized by the Holy Spirit, that He will descend mightily on us as He did on the Apostles at Pentecost. That the Holy Spirit will transform us from fear to fearlessness and that He will give us courage to do all the Father is asking of us to help bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. We pray for the Holy Spirit to descend mightily on the Jesuits and the Poor Clares on the Shepherds of Christ leaders and members and on the whole Body of Christ and the world.

Protection by the Blood of Jesus

We pray that the Blood of Jesus will be spread on us, everyone in our families, and the Shepherds of Christ Movement, that we will be able to move steadfastly ahead and be protected from the evil one.

Healing

We pray for healing in body, mind, and soul and generational healing in ourselves, in all members in our families, and in all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, the Jesuit Community, the Poor Clares, the Body of Christ, and the world.

Prayer for Strength and Light

We adore You, oh Holy Spirit. Give us strength, give us light, console us. We give ourselves entirely to You. Oh Spirit of light and grace, we want to only do the will of the Father. Enlighten us that we may live always in the Father's will.

Eternal Spirit fill us with Your Divine Wisdom that we may comprehend more fully insight into Your Divine Mysteries.

Give us lights, Oh Holy Spirit that we may know God. Work within the heart, the spiritual womb of the Virgin Mary, to form us more and more into the image of Jesus.

Prayer to Be One with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit

We long for You, Oh Spirit of Light, we long to know God, we want to be one with Him, our Divine God. We want to be one with the Father, know Him as a Person most intimately. We want to know the beloved One, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and live and dwell in Him at all times, every moment of our lives. We want to be one with You, Oh Spirit of Light, that You move in us in our every breath.

Prayer to Be One in Jesus

Let us experience life in the Sacred Heart of Jesus, so we can say as Saint Paul, "I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me...." Let us live, united to the Mass, all through the day being one in Him. Let us be able to love and know in this elevated state of oneness with our God. We long for Thee, oh beauteous God, we love You, we love You, we love You. We praise You, worship You, honor You, adore You, and thank You, our beloved God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Prayer to Dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary

We seek to be one in God, to live and dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, our little heaven on earth, to experience life in the all perfect, pure, sinless heart of our Mother. We want the Holy Spirit to move in us and to be united to Jesus as the Bridegroom of our souls and be a most perfect sacrifice offered to the Father at every moment as we unite in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass around the world to help in the salvation of souls.

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.

Prayer for the Word Alive in Our Hearts

We know, dear Holy Spirit, the Word in His human nature was brought forth within the womb of the woman. We pray that His word will be brought forth in our hearts as He lives and dwells in us. We want the incarnation to go on in our lives. Dear Holy Spirit, work in us.

Little Prayers to the Holy Spirit

Dear Holy Spirit, help us not to be ignorant or indifferent or weak, help us to be strong with the love of God.

Dear Holy Spirit, please pray for our needs for us.

Dear Holy Spirit, help us to respect God and to avoid sin. Help us to live in the Father's will.

Dear Holy Spirit, help us to keep Your commandments and to respect authority. Help us to love all things as You will us to love them. Help us to want to pray and always serve God with the greatest love. Help us to know the truth. Help us to have the gift of faith, hope, and love. Help us to know what is right and what is wrong.

A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.
