                as far as we are able.

                    Dear God give us courage to do

Isaiah 50: 4-9

Lord Yahweh has given me 
    a disciple’s tongue, 
for me to know how to give 
    a word of comfort to the weary. 
Morning by morning 
    he makes my ear alert 
to listen like a disciple. 
Lord Yahweh has opened my ear 
and I have not resisted, 
I have not turned away. 
I have offered my back 
    to those who struck me, 
my cheeks to those 
    who plucked my beard; 
I have not turned my face away 
from insult and spitting. 
Lord Yahweh comes to my help, 
this is why insult has not touched me, 
this is why I have set my face like flint 
and know that I shall not 
    be put to shame. 
He who grants me saving justice is near! 
Who will bring a case against me? 
Let us appear in court together! 
Who has a case against me? 
Let him approach me! 
Look, Lord Yahweh is coming 
    to my help! 
Who dares condemn me?
Look at them, all falling apart
like moth-eaten clothes!


                R. Jesus has called us to spread the
                Good News, to walk in His footsteps –
                that means that in doing so – we
                will suffer and yet we must
                identify with Him and have our
                life in Him – He will give us what
                we need to endure and to continue
                in strength.

                    God has a plan for us in salvation
                history. We want to see through the
                eyes of our heavenly Father and pray
                for the priests, the Church and the
                world, to pray for our country to
                be the land of our Lady and that
                people make Jesus the King of their

                    Everything is under God when it
                is in it's proper order.

                    Dear Jesus we ask for Your help
                that people in the United States make You
                the King and center of their hearts –
                Please Jesus help us.

                    Judas betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces
                of silver – Judas did the deed for

                    Jesus came to be a servant – We
                see Jesus the suffering servant –
                Jesus gave His life for our sins –
                Dear God increase in us the virtues
                of faith, hope and love.


Isaiah 61: 1-3, 6, 8-9

The spirit of Lord Yahweh 
    is on me 
for Yahweh has anointed me. 
He has sent me to bring the news 
    to the afflicted, 
to soothe the broken–hearted, 
to proclaim liberty to captives, 
release to those in prison, 
to proclaim a year of favour from Yahweh 
and a day of vengeance for our God, 
to comfort all who mourn 
(to give to Zion’s mourners), 
to give them for ashes a garland, 
for mourning–dress, the oil of gladness, 
for despondency, festal attire; 
and they will be called 
    ‘terebinths of saving justice’, 
planted by Yahweh to glorify him.

but you will be called ‘priests of Yahweh’ 
and be addressed as ‘ministers of our God’. 
You will feed on the wealth of nations, 
you will supplant them in their glory.

For I am Yahweh: I love fair judgement, 
I hate robbery and wrong–doing, 
and I shall reward them faithfully 
and make an everlasting covenant 
    with them. 
Their race will be famous 
    throughout the nations 
and their offspring 
    throughout the peoples. 
All who see them will admit 
that they are a race 
    whom Yahweh has blessed.  


Revelation 1: 5-8

and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the First–born from the dead, the highest of earthly kings. He loves us and has washed away our sins with his blood, and made us a Kingdom of Priests to serve his God and Father; to him, then, be glory and power for ever and ever. Amen. Look, he is coming on the clouds; everyone will see him, even those who pierced him, and all the races of the earth will mourn over him. Indeed this shall be so. Amen. ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega,’ says the Lord God, who is, who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.


                R. Jesus came and He did
                the mission His heavenly Father
                sent Him on, despite the

                    Heavenly Father, give us
                strength in our mission to be holy,
                we pray –

                    Thank You God for the Eucharist!

                    Dear God bless our country, bless
                our families – outpour Your
                blessings on us and make us strong
                to serve You as You desire in
                these few short years we are
                called to serve in our lives.
                Help us God to be holy –

                Dear God outpour Your love to us
                and keep us close to You always –

                We pray all our prayers in
                union with Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice
                of the Mass – to the Father in the
                Holy Spirit with Mary at our side!

                God is all powerful – we must
                pray to Him for help and have faith
                He will help us.

                Dear God we feel weak now, help
                us with Your powerful might –
                to fight the good fight for Your
                Law – help us to live to bring
                love to the earth, Live in us,
                help us, strengthen us – dear
                God help us never to turn our
                backs to You. Amen.

                Dear God mold us in the image
                of Your Son that we may be
                pure in heart and Your
                faithful servants. Amen.

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."

22 Years Ago

I Never Leave You

March 9, 1994 5:00 a.m.

Jesus: Until heaven and earth shall pass away, not one letter of the law will pass away. "You were hungry and I gave You to eat. When, Lord, did I see You hungry and give You to eat?" When you did it unto one of your brethren, you did it unto Me.

I am the Alpha and the Omega. I am your God. I come to you in the night to deliver a message. The message is for My beloved ones. I never leave your side. Others may move in and out, but I never leave you. I will never leave you orphaned.

I am Jesus Christ, your Savior, and I comfort you. You run down senseless roads looking for that which you seek and I am the true treasure found in the field. Do not be about idle pursuits. Follow only Me. I am the Master. I am He Whose bootstraps you are unworthy to tie, but I love you ardently and I never leave your side.

You wander, you roam, you look for a sure thing, only to find nothing is a sure thing. You go to the world, but your soul is left dry and empty. There is no insurance in this life. Look for all those things that are everlasting. That is all you need to seek. Store up your treasures for the life hereafter.

I am indeed here, little one. You fret and fume, and for what? Turn your entire life over to Me. You live only for the love of Jesus. This gives you great freedom! I come to deliver My words here. Do not put your faith in things of this world. Turn only to Me and I, your loving Savior, will sustain you!

You will run and not get weary. You will fly on eagles' wings and I will be by your side to hold you up. I am Jesus. Others wane and move about. I am He Who never leaves! I am silently by your side in adversity. I watch you ever more. Do not worry, do not fret, for your God is by your side.

I am Jesus, the Son of God. I am He Who has all the answers. Search this barren desert only to find that I and I alone will sustain you!

In adversity, come to Me. Throw yourself at My feet. Give Me your all. Proclaim your love for Me. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus.

I am the Son of God. I am Jesus Christ, your Savior. Child, you want for no one but Me. It is this dependency I want from you. No man can satisfy his hunger for the Lord. No man is steadfast in His ways.

I am God. I never leave you. Do you comprehend that God loves you so much as to never leave you abandoned? That is all you need to know.

If you operate entirely for the love of Jesus, no one can touch you. You are absolutely free. Let go and come to Me, My little, scared one. I bind up your wounds and I give you all you need. I am God and no one can ever do what I, God, will do for you!


R. He does not want us improperly dependent on anything. He is really showing me how attached to others I am. He wants me totally dependent on Him. He and He alone will sustain me. Others move in and out. I think I am selfless, only to see how attached I am to something.

Oh, Lord, You are so patient with me. I in my trials wonder what You aim to teach me, when I see the lesson so clearly right before my eyes. You are the Lord. You are my love. That is all I need. Jesus, be by my side and on my lips at every turn. I am Yours to possess.

I do not even see my dependency on others. This dependency and attachment keeps me from union with You. I surrender to You, Lord. My life is Yours. I am so weak and so yielding to my ways. I want comfort and insurance and You provide me with much finer things--trust and faith!

You give me trials to learn my lessons. Trials are hard. Your school is not easy. Such gifts to acquire!

You, Who so sweetly give us all we need to do Your work, oh, how I love You. In trials You teach me what I need to know. I love You, Lord. You are He Who died for me and all You give me is out of great love to teach me just the lessons I need to do Your work.

Alleluia. Help me to surrender entirely to You. Alleluia.
