Acts 2: 14, 22-32

Then Peter stood up with the Eleven and addressed them in a loud voice: 

    ‘Men of Judaea, and all you who live in Jerusalem, make no mistake about this, but listen carefully to what I say.

    ‘Men of Israel, listen to what I am going to say: Jesus the Nazarene was a man commended to you by God by the miracles and portents and signs that God worked through him when he was among you, as you know. This man, who was put into your power by the deliberate intention and foreknowledge of God, you took and had crucified and killed by men outside the Law. But God raised him to life, freeing him from the pangs of Hades; for it was impossible for him to be held in its power since, as David says of him: 

    I kept the Lord before my sight always, 
    for with him at my right hand 
        nothing can shake me. 
    So my heart rejoiced 
    my tongue delighted; 
    my body, too, will rest secure, 
    for you will not abandon me to Hades 
    or allow your holy one to see corruption. 
    You have taught me the way of life, 
    you will fill me with joy in your presence.

    ‘Brothers, no one can deny that the patriarch David himself is dead and buried: his tomb is still with us. But since he was a prophet, and knew that God had sworn him an oath to make one of his descendants succeed him on the throne, he spoke with foreknowledge about the resurrection of the Christ: he is the one who was not abandoned to Hades, and whose body did not see corruption. God raised this man Jesus to life, and of that we are all witnesses.


Matthew 28: 8-15

Filled with awe and great joy the women came quickly away from the tomb and ran to tell his disciples.

Appearance to the women

And suddenly, coming to meet them, was Jesus. ‘Greetings,’ he said. And the women came up to him and, clasping his feet, they did him homage. Then Jesus said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers that they must leave for Galilee; there they will see me.’

Precautions taken by the leaders of the people

Now while they were on their way, some of the guards went off into the city to tell the chief priests all that had happened. These held a meeting with the elders and, after some discussion, handed a considerable sum of money to the soldiers with these instructions, ‘This is what you must say, "His disciples came during the night and stole him away while we were asleep." And should the governor come to hear of this, we undertake to put things right with him ourselves and to see that you do not get into trouble.’ So they took the money and carried out their instructions, and to this day that is the story among the Jews.


Jesus speaks:     My dear people,

                                The earth is green, 



Jesus speaks:         many children are at play, some
                            at the beach,



Jesus speaks:     some planting flowers, 



Jesus speaks:     some elderly are in homes.

Jesus speaks:        Oh My people I give you gifts —

                                A lady said, "My dear God, my love is
                            never bruised like my body

                            My heart is always the same —
                            I love deeply my family and friends and
                                my God."

                            My people

                                Reach — I am with you —
                                             You can always grow in deeper
                                                love with Me and others.

                                A little child hurt himself while playing
                                    and was confined to bed, he told
                                his mom he had lots of time to think about
                                    all the fun things he had done with his
                                    sisters and brothers and cousins and

                                He told his mom he liked it better when he
                                    could do what he wanted and play
                                    and run.

                                I have put you on the surface of the earth.
                                    Your primary purpose is to grow
                                    more deeply in your love union
                                    with Me.

                                Young people very often look for a man
                                    or woman to marry then they think
                                    they will be happy when they can
                                    relax and know they are loved.


Excerpt from Response to God's Love

    Early in our discussion of the Christian's encounter with others, we should obviously say a few direct things concerning the core attitude of love, a trait that should permeate all other attitudes. It is well to begin by observing a phenomenon of our culture concerning love: Many persons who choose marriage say they do so out of a desire to be loved. Notice, they say that they marry out of a desire to be loved, not to love. In fairness to these persons, perhaps we should presume that they realize they in turn must also offer love. Yet, is it not revealing that they explicitly mention as the reason for marrying a desire to be loved? Could there be a close correlation between this phenomenon and the extraordinarily high divorce rate that prevails in our culture? If it is common that both partners enter marriage more from a need to receive love than from a desire to give it, do we have to look further for the reason to explain why so many marriages are plagued with various degrees of unhappiness?

Jesus speaks:        There are so many imperfections, people
                                    that cannot ever get above the
                                    trauma they had to withstand as
                                    children, some having so many hidden
                                    wounds concerning loving have problems today.

                                Fr. Carter writes further


Excerpt from Response to God's Love

    Communication is obviously a very important element as people deal with one another. A dominant problem plaguing numerous marriages and families is a lack of communication between the spouses themselves, between the parents and children, and among the children themselves. Obviously, a lack of communication also causes problems between friend and friend, between employer and employee, between teacher and student. There is no need to continue the list—your own experience can add example after example.

    Authentic communication requires a willingness on the part of the parties involved to appropriately share ideas, problems, ideals, joys, and sorrows. Words are obviously involved, but not all words are helpful. We must therefore strive to discern which words are helpful and which words are not—a task that is not always easy. Further, the increasing quantity of words is not always the measure of progressive communication; sometimes the more the words are increased, the more the communication suffers. What matters most is the quality of the words that are spoken, the motivation that prompts them. Also, not all those who are involved have to speak and listen equally. If we attentively try to evaluate all the circumstances—including the different personalities involved—we will tend to contribute our appropriate share of listening and speaking. Furthermore, we must always remember that communication occurs in ways that are over and above the spoken word. Finally, we should realize that authentic communication must be rooted in the mutual respect and love that should guide all our dealings with each other.

Jesus speaks:        Some people have had very sad holidays.

                                Some people think that the children will
                                    come home for birthdays and holidays
                                    and then some children do not 
                                    give their mom or dad any time.

                                My people you cannot put your hopes in
                                    other people giving you the love
                                    your heart craves, some times they
                                    love you, sometimes they do not
                                    seem like they love you. 

                                I have given you My Blue Book love
                                    letters. I give you Myself in the
                                    Eucharist, I love you to come
                                    to Me. I am the Mighty Medicine
                                    for the sick world.

                                    There is so much dysfunction, so
                                many people do not even realize
                                how unloving they are. Some want another
                                person to love them, a particular person
                                they seek after and it is not God's will
                                they are united the way they desire.

                                    A little girl was somewhat ignored by
                                her father. He never showed her affection
                                and recognition. She longed for her dad
                                to love her as other little girls in
                                the neighborhood. He played his golf,
                                went on business trips, criticized her
                                and constantly through his actions she
                                felt she was not important to him,
                                she felt she could never please him,
                                and she was always doing things wrong.
                                She felt insecure, unsafe and most of the
                                time she experienced disharmony inside
                                always looking on the dark side of things
                                (negative thinking).

                                    Another little girl received so much love
                                from their dad and mom. Their dad and
                                mom worked together making an atmosphere
                                of love. The little girl was shown
                                lots of love from her dad and
                                recognized by her parents as very
                                special and very important. There
                                was lots of love for God in the house.
                                She lived in a secure house, it was
                                harmonious, people respected each other,
                                there was love and lots of care shown
                                toward each other.

                                    The first little girl tried to have relationships
                                all her life that would fill her and heal the
                                wounds left by her father. When she was
                                older, she married a man, much like her father,
                                and he treated her much the same way, she cried
                                very much and her children soon left for college
                                each treating her with the same lack of importance.
                                Her heart felt as if she had a hole in it
                                and it would never heal. She received
                                My messages of love in God's Blue Book
                                and began going to the tabernacle and
                                daily Mass. For the first time in her
                                life her aching heart felt healed. I
                                am the way, the truth and the life.
                                You crave My love for you. I write
                                to you My love in My love letters.
                                My Heart is on fire for love of you.

                                The Mighty-Medicine is My burning love.
                                    I want you to know about it
                                    and give Me your love in return.

                                I love you so much.

Messenger:         We get people who were ready to commit
                                suicide and didn't because of a
                                message they opened up to in God's
                                Blue Book.

Jesus speaks:      My Heart is on-fire for love of you.
                            I give you Myself in the Eucharist.
                            The power is in the Eucharist.

                            I give Myself to you.

Messenger:        Whenever Fr. Carter would raise
                                the host a little see-through
                                gold host came out from
                                behind and above — this is hard
                                to explain.


Excerpt from January 13, 1999

The glow around the Host is the glow that I see so often at Mass at the Consecration.

It is transparent and golden. It usually comes out about 1/4 the size of the Host, directly above it as you see in the picture.

Picture on front of Mass Book

Messenger: The picture on the front of the Mass Book is really not like it is, for it is mystical and cannot be drawn. To describe it exactly is impossible. The Host is elevated and then it comes out.

Mary G.

How has being a member of Shepherds of Christ has changed my life?

When I was a baby, we lived next door to a convent and I had 12 years of Catholic education. I married and lived Cincinnati eventually. After my civil divorce, my three younger children and I moved back to Price Hill in Cincinnati where I grew up. This time brought me the Catholic Charismatic experience.

Dad died in '86, and I moved away to a small town. Though I tried, I thought no Catholic church or prayer group met my needs so I attended Protestant prayer meetings and services. I found ministers and prayer groups that deeply love the Lord Jesus, and I would still be in these circles except that I went back to Cincinnati to visit. I hadn't told my old friends that I was no longer a practicing Catholic so I joined them when they attended charismatic functions. At one of these I was given Blue Book I.

Actually, someone tried to give it to me and I wouldn't take it saying, I had too much to read , so it was given to the friend I was staying with. When we got home and she was out of the room, I opened the book so I could congratulate myself for not accepting it.

That's Jesus! Jesus is speaking in this book! I read almost the whole book that night, then I ate humble pie and phoned the lady who had pressed me to accept it. I received it in a few days.

Back home I read and reread it. Jesus was speaking loud and clear and I went to the nearest church and made a confession and resumed my long neglected practice of daily Mass. I also began to go to the Shepherds of Christ chapter meetings in Morrow, Ohio, where I heard the call for volunteers to come to the Virgin Mary Site in Clearwater, Florida.

How well I understand God's words, "Your thoughts are not My thoughts!".

Changing my thoughts and my ways comes more slowly than changing my address, which is now Clearwater, Florida.

Though retirement isn't at all what I thought it would be, I wouldn't trade places with anyone at all.



Sue H.

How has being a member of Shepherds of Christ changed my life?

It seems that I have been searching for a good part of my adult life for a fulfillment I didn't know existed. I guess I always thought that raising my five children and providing a good home for them and my husband was where I was supposed to be.

A friend came back from Medjugorje in 1988 and told me that Our Lady requested that we pray the rosary everyday. And so this is where it all started. I started praying the rosary daily and my life started to change. It was as though from that point Our Lord was leading me on a journey-- prayer groups, St. Louis de Montfort consecration, more prayer groups, grasping for any knowledge I could.

Then in August of 1994 I was led to Falmouth, Kentucky, for Our Lady's apparitions after finding out Our Lady was no longer appearing in Conyers monthly. I continued to visit Our Lady's farm on the 8th's for the next 11 months, the last being Oct. 8, 1995. I remember saying monthly that I felt as if I was being prepared for something but didn't know what. If I'm to be honest, I would have to say that I felt somewhat guilty always praying to Mary and not feeling a deeper relationship with God. I knew she took our prayers to her Son, Jesus, but I felt an emptiness that wasn't being fulfilled.

Then on June 8th, 1995, we went to the Holy Spirit Center after the Falmouth apparition and Rita came up to us and asked us if we would like to pray the rosary with her. We declined because of the long and hot day and returned home. We then went down to the Holy Spirit Center for the Miracle of the lights on Aug. 31st, 1995. The next day we stopped at the Center again and Rita again asked us to say the rosary with her. And so we did this time. It was truly beautiful (Sept. 1, 1995). In June when we met with Rita she gave me a Blue Book. I honestly didn't open it right away because I had so much other material to read. My sister-in-law said that I really should open it. I did.

This was what would finally fulfill my longing. This is what I had been looking for, a relationship with my Lord. I learned so much through these Blue Books. I started to talk to Rita weekly and started to learn more and more. I then began writing up rosaries for her and continued the learning. I learned of Our Lord's great love and how He is always with us. I learned of His presence in the Eucharist, something I always knew but it never really sank in. My life changed dramatically and I had this craving more and more to be with Jesus in front of the tabernacle. I attended the 13th's at Tom's Farm and the Holy Spirit Center and couldn't wait until the following month.

Sometimes I feel I'll explode if I can't say what I know and I feel. But it also brings such sadness to know of His great love and not have the whole world be able to experience it.

This is why I feel Our Lord is teaching us to pray. It does help to know we are helping to save souls and it helps me to deal with the lack of faith that surrounds me in today's world.

When He gives me a gift or grace and my heart feels so full of love I never want to leave the tabernacle.

God has so graced my soul to have allowed me to become a Shepherd of Christ apostle leader, for I have done nothing to earn this gift. And yet He allows me to love and know so many wonderful people in the Movement.

I accept this gift and pray that I will spend the rest of my life doing the Father's will and dwelling in the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.



Rosie R.

How has Shepherds of Christ changed my life?

The first time I opened God's Blue Book, I knew that Jesus was speaking to me! The message was just what I needed that day!

I had not attended daily Mass since Catholic High School, approximately 30 years previous. MY PRAYER LIFE had been practically non-existent -- attending Sunday Mass and calling on God during trials. In fact, the threat of my husband dying of cancer took me back to praying the rosary and praying novenas to the Blessed Mother. After he died I was at a loss, for I considered him my "rock". For the first time ever in my life, I began praying to do God's will. I had a career, but I felt in my heart that I didn't want to do that for the rest of my working life.

I was invited by a friend to make a Cursillo weekend and without hesitation, said yes. Following the grace-filled weekend, I entered the chapel for adoration and picked up the Blue Book, which I had ignored for weeks. I immediately fell in love with Jesus and my life began to change! With the help of Jesus through the Blue Book, along with daily Mass and Holy Communion and spending time after Communion with Jesus and time in prayer, I was able to work through my depression, which I had even denied existed.

After giving out many Blue Books to relatives and friends, I received an invitation to attend the first monthly Shepherds of Christ national prayer meeting at Tom A's farm held on October 13, 1996, with Rita leading a Live Rosary. I felt drawn to every meeting after that, and soon found myself in the core group at Morrow, Ohio, attending weekly prayer meetings with Live Rosaries. Through the use of the Blue Books, mostly in front of the tabernacle, weekly prayer meetings, and rosaries at Morrow, I have grown closer to Jesus than I ever thought possible.

I thank Jesus every day for His many graces and the deep love that He gives me to draw me closer and closer to Him. I also thank my spiritual Mother, Mary, with all my heart for her help when I turned to her in desperation and for the help she's given me throughout my life.

As an apostle working in Florida at Our Lady's Image Site, I have a great opportunity to spread the light and love of Christ to all I meet!!!

    *Words of Jesus. Read before the Tabernacle.

Jesus speaks:  How, child, do I, Jesus, tell you I love you? You hold on to silly things when God is in your midst and is ardently loving you. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I am writing to each precious child this day. I am on fire for love of you. I remain in the Eucharist to be with you with My ardent love. I did not want to leave My beloved ones at the Last Supper. I love you so, My dear and ardently loved children. I remain with you this day in the Blessed Sacrament, the same Jesus Who died a brutal death on the Cross.
    Do you know I am truly present there? Do you know that God waits every day for you in the tabernacle? Do you comprehend even a minute amount of My love? You will never know of how I love you on earth.
    I, Jesus, truly the Son of God, came to earth a man and suffered a brutal death for love of you. I love you so much! I remain with you this day. I long for your love. I want you to come and be with Me in front of the tabernacle. I wait, I yearn for you to come and whisper your love to Me. I am a person and I love you this day, with such an ardent on-fire love! No human could ever compare a speck to My love for you.
    I wait, little ones, in the tabernacle. I wait for you to come and receive Me in Communion. I want you to want Me so much you cannot wait to come and receive Me. I want to be the love, the center of your life!
    I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am writing to you this day. I want to possess your very soul and live in you. I have all you need, sweet ones. Oh, you are so blind! I long for your union with Me. I wrote the book of love. I instituted it, yet you go to the world for your love and do not even come to Me! Oh, I love you, little ones. Little ones, beloved of the Father, loved by the Holy Spirit, mothered by My very own mother! What more can I say? The rest is up to you!
    I give you your will with such love and I want your love freely given. I am God. What do you think you could ever need that I do not give you? I am the Savior of this world. I am Jesus, the Son of God. I am waiting for you. I am longing for you. I am yearning for you. I am God. I have all you ever will need!
    Surrender this life to Me. Pray My Prayer for Union with Me. I want to possess your soul and operate from your very being. I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am Who am. I died and rose on the third day.
    Harken to My call, harken to My pleading. Spend your days in love with Me. Nothing matters unless it is rooted in Me and rooted in My love. I am the Son of God. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I love you with the tenderest love. I am waiting this day for just you, My beloved one. Come to Me for I am the tenderest of all hearts. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Your Bridegroom Waits for You

February 11, 1994 4:00 a.m.

Note: This letter was given by Jesus for a talk at St. Clare Convent

Jesus speaks: You are being tested in fire. What comes forth is a sinner or a saint. I want you holy like saints, untainted. Even the smallest sin offends My aching heart.

Messenger: He is calling us to holiness and sainthood.

Jesus speaks: I am the Alpha, the Omega. I am your All. You worry for such needless tasks when I am Jesus and I am in your midst.

The world is being led away from God. It has become a godless society.

Satan gets in in little things and you forget how holy I want you to be in Me. I want you to be saints. I call you to commitment to sainthood. Every action should be seen as "how will this action enhance my love of Jesus and the love of Jesus in others?"

Messenger: I am being called every moment to preach the gospel. I preach His words in my very being. How am I in my life today? When I stand in the presence of others, does my love of God shine from my very soul? I am the preacher of the God Who lives within. Do I preach the word of God in the love I give to all of my brothers? Is God truly shining from me?

Jesus speaks: I, My children, call you to be Me to this world. This world has deceived itself in every way to all sin. They have watched television and movies turn right to wrong and wrong to right.

I preach to you this day: what is right is right and what is wrong is wrong! The world preaches deception and untruth. To be in the world is to become very sick. You can no longer straddle the fence and be of Me. You are either Godly or worldly. To remain fixed to this world, to try to make sense of a sick, godless society, is to become sick and godless yourself.

Yes, My little ones, I call you to sainthood. I call you every waking moment of your day to preach the word of God. My love within you should be a force mightier than any explosion. It is a force that can never be contained.

As you, through the Holy Eucharist and adoration, sit with Me, you bake as in an oven. You receive My power in your baking. You store up, as in a battery, a power that is emitted from your very being. I, little ones, have all the power. In one second I could snatch you from your comfort and take your breath away. What, little ones, is keeping you from your sainthood?

Is it the way you treat your brothers? Do you say, "Oh, it doesn't matter that I am cold"? Is it a hidden sin that you keep ever so slight, but tell yourself it doesn't matter? Do you talk about others and fail to see Me inside of their hearts?

Remember, My little ones, you are My chosen ones. I love you with a burning, ardent love. I never ever leave your side for one second. You are My workers in this cold world. Your brothers may never be touched except as you preach My gospel. Their souls may depend on how you emit My love from your heart.

"But," you say, "Lord, Lord, I don't want to be nice to that nasty person. I will just be tolerant and not nasty back."

I, Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, say I call you, My chosen ones, to a life of sainthood and holiness. You are the preachers of My gospel. You are My hands. You are My heart. You are Me, dwelling and living in this world.

Those in darkness may never be touched unless you, My special ones, choose first the kingdom of God and choose to love the unloving.

Yes, I say, love the unloving! I call you to sainthood, My little ones. I call you to let Me possess your soul and operate from your very being.

When I died on the cross, My arms were open wide. My whole position on the cross was that of greatest surrender. I call you to this surrender. Hold not back your feeble hearts. Open wide the gates and let My love pour from your very souls. Do not come to Me with your arms closed or open halfway. Come as I came to you. The way to Me is the Way of the Cross.

Feel the love of Jesus deep in your breast. Meditate on Me, hanging so selflessly on the cross for love of you. I am Jesus, Son of God, I loved you to My death. I love you this same way this very day. Sweet one, if you were the only one, I would die for you alone this very day.

I am this same Jesus. I am in your midst. I live and dwell in your brothers. I come to you, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, in Holy Communion and in the tabernacle. I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God! I am alive in your hearts.

You come to Me in Holy Communion. I wait, I long for your union with Me. I am your ardent lover. I pour out to you the same love I had for you the day I died on the cross.

You come and I shower you with My love. Stay with Me after Communion. Sit with Me. These are My most golden moments to shower My love on you.

You, My little ones, busy yourself with such senseless tasks. I am Jesus, the King of Glory! I am the King of the Kingdom of Heaven and I come to you, My little sweet ones. I humble Myself and come to you. What do you receive? You, in Holy Communion, receive Jesus, God-made-man.

Oh, how are you today? The tongue is the doorway to the soul. How is your tongue? Is it worthy for such a King?

Who are you that Jesus, Son of God, comes to you? You, My child, are My beloved. You are he who is unworthy to tie My bootstraps, but I come to you with such love and longing and give Myself to you. Is your tongue pure? Have you been holy in your speech about others? Have you used your tongue to preach My love? Is your tongue worthy for the King of Heaven?

I give you such honor, such dignity. I, God, long to be united to you in Holy Communion. I came to earth and died a brutal death for you, for love of you. I, in total surrender, holding nothing back, chose to spread My arms in total submission and die for you. Do I love you any less today? I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I love you today the same as the day I died for you. I spread My arms in total surrender and gave My all for love of you.

Can you refuse Me when I ask you to love one another? How did you preach My gospel today? How was My love given to your brothers?

My sweet ones, My life I gave that you might live and have life eternal. Life here is but a fleeting moment. It is like a billowing smoke, black and thick, and then, poof, it is gone and there is no trace! Such a few years here for such a great reward!

The Kingdom of God waits for you. What a treasure! You possess the keys to the Kingdom. They are found in the love in your hearts. You will inherit a reward far beyond any comprehension. You will be escorted by a heavenly court into My kingdom. You will see the face of God and you will live. This is but a test--a fleeting moment--for such glory!

Messenger: You are being called. This is the school of learning to be Christ-like. You go to school every day. You are given tests all day. The test in Christ's school are hard. Did He do any less for you? He modeled His life for us.

You take the tests, you receive the divine reward, graduation into the kingdom of God.

Jesus speaks: Will you, My little ones, be My soldiers in this cold world? I call you to two things: love of God and love of one another. Will you come to Me with all the great acts of love you gave to your brothers? Will you be My hands to the sick world?

I do not call you to mighty feats. I call you to love one another. Too simple you say? Too hard for too many! The way to Me is hard, but rewarding. Walk My path, follow My direction. To My death I loved you, My little ones. I am the author of love. I showed you the way. When they persecuted Me and hit Me, beat Me, bruised Me, bloodied Me, I loved them. To My death My thoughts were of you when I gave you My sweet mother. I showed you the way to love. Will you follow in My path?

Your job is to love not the nice ones only, but to love all your brothers. Your love will be the seeds that you plant today. Smile the biggest smiles. You possess the life of Jesus within you. You possess the true treasure. You will see the face of God and live!

Your job is clear. Love God and one another. Do not busy yourself with needless tasks. Come to Me. Come to Me in Communion. Come in Adoration. Let Me shower you with My love. You are filled to the brim and you come from a place of giving love rather than needing love.

Oh, My sweet ones, My chosen ones, I wait for you with My love in the tabernacle. I wait for you with your arms for this cold world. Your arms in this cold war are your hearts filled with My love. You cannot be My soldiers of love in this world if you do not first seek your union with Me. It is in the silence before the tabernacle that I minister to you. Come and do not be busy. Let Me fill you with My love.

My Heart is on fire with love of you. I give this to you in the Eucharist and in front of the tabernacle. I am there, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity. Come and get your arms, get your supplies. You are going into battle in this world. You are battling evil and hate. You need your ammunition and it is found in Me. Come and I will give you your arms--My love.

Oh, how I love you. I ache in My heart for your love. You do not know how I ache to behold each of you. Please come. It is in the greatest love that I am locked up in the tabernacle. Come, please, I beg you. I love you. I want you to come. I am Jesus, Son of God and I am waiting for you this very day.

Come to Me and I will give you all you need. I love you. Jesus.

Do you know that I have all the power? Look at the earth, covered with ice. Do you control such things? Stopped dead in your tracks, are you? Do you still think you have control in your immobility?

What does it take to shake you in your comfort zone? Who will get the message to you? I am Jesus. I am God. God has all the power. Do you pray now in your idleness with this weather or do you busy your mind with more senseless tasks?

Oh, what do you need to turn you from your ways? I come and dwell in your midst and you ignore Me and look for other things to fill the weary soul.

Man, nothing fills your soul. I and I alone am what you seek. You look in all the wrong places and I wait for you in the tabernacle. If you knew of this unseen world! But you are blind and dumb and stay centered as if in a tunnel.

Pray for your sick brothers. They have been blinded by the world and numbed by the TV. Their hearts are cold and their heads are hot. Oh, what a sad state! Pray for them lest they lose their souls. This world is full of evil. Come to Me. Sit in silence and know My love. I am your refuge.

In My church, in front of My tabernacle, there is such peace and joy. I am your King. I am your God. I am your Lord. I am Who am. I am your all. Little ones, little ones, I lament the loss of your love. Come to Me and be wrapped in My arms. I love you. Alleluia

Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, what God has ready for those who Love Him.

Promote yourself? Where do you go when your life is done? You flunk the test when you see yourself as the end. Die to yourself and you will possess life eternal.

I love you so. Such pride, such arrogance! Who do they think they are? They think they are their own gods. This is against the First Commandment.

In all things, turn your lives to God. Give Him full reign. You possess the choice to inherit a kingdom! Oh, such blindness! I love you in all your blindness, just the same. Pray for your brothers that the light of Christ might shine through you and touch their cold hearts.

Be as My saints, holy and untainted. Hold tight to My kingdom. It is at hand and you are its rightful heirs. Alleluia.

Messenger: Jesus, tuck me into the recesses of Your heart and let me live in there with You in Your heart. Swallow me up in a little pocket. I love You so!

I give You my mind. I give You my body. I give You my soul. I am wed to You, my entirety to be Your spouse. I want to be the bride of Jesus Christ. My soul must be as white as the brightest white for such a king. I give myself to You, body and soul. I want to be Your saint. I want to do Your will and Your will alone. I want to be totally united with You in all my thoughts. I want to be pure just for You. Bless me and all those I touch.

I remain in You, ever to do Your work. I am Your temple and You dwell within me with such holiness! I approach the altar of Jesus and behold my beloved. I say to You, "Lord, Thy will be done," yet, when the going gets rough, I do my own will. Let me constantly be connected to You, Jesus, that with every beat of my heart I may never shame You in my thoughts or actions, that I do Thy will directly as I am prompted to do. I love You and You are my beloved. Alleluia.

I have committed myself to the King and I am an heir to the kingdom. It is in this constant walk of faith that I come into His presence, constantly committing my will to do His so only that which is of Him will flow from my soul.

Alleluia. Praise Him, holiest in the heights, for He is all powerful and He sets my feet on solid ground. Seek and you will find. Knock and it will be opened unto you. Make ready your hearts for Him, the King of Glory. He is worthy of such honor. He is God. Alleluia.

               1.  Daniel 7: 9

            While I was watching, 
        thrones were set in place
        and one most venerable took his seat.
        His robe was white as snow,
        the hair of his head as pure as wool.
        His throne was a blaze of flames,
        its wheels were a burning fire.

               2.   Daniel 7:10

        A stream of fire poured out,
        issuing from his presence.
        A thousand thousand waited on him,
        ten thousand times ten thousand
           stood before him.
        The court was in session
        and the books lay open.

               3.   Daniel 7:13

       I was gazing into the visions of the night,
       when I saw,
           coming on the clouds of heaven,
       as it were a son of man.
       He came to the One most venerable
       and was led into his presence.

                  4.  Daniel 7:14

       On him was conferred rule,
       honour and kingship,
       and all peoples, nations and languages
           became his servants.
       His rule is an everlasting rule
       which will never pass away,
       and his kingship will never come to an end.

               5.   Psalm 97: 1-2 

            Yahweh is king! Let earth rejoice, 
        the many isles be glad!
        Cloud, black cloud enfolds him,
        saving justice and judgement the foundations of his throne.

               6.  Psalm 97: 5-6 

        The mountains melt like wax,
        before the Lord of all the earth.
        The heavens proclaim his saving justice,
        all nations see his glory.

               7.  Psalm 97: 9 

        For you are Yahweh,
        Most High over all the earth,
        far transcending all gods.

               8.  2 Peter 1: 16-19          

When we told you about the power and the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, we were not slavishly repeating cleverly invented myths; no, we had seen his majesty with our own eyes. He was honoured and glorified by God the Father, when a voice came to him from the transcendent Glory, This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favour.  We ourselves heard this voice from heaven, when we were with him on the holy mountain.

So we have confirmation of the words of the prophets; and you will be right to pay attention to it as to a lamp for lighting a way through the dark, until the dawn comes and the morning star rises in your minds.

               9.  Matthew 17: 1-9

Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain by themselves. There in their presence he was transfigured: his face shone like the sun and his clothes became as dazzling as light. And suddenly Moses and Elijah appeared to them; they were talking with him. Then Peter spoke to Jesus. ‘Lord,’ he said, ‘it is wonderful for us to be here; if you want me to, I will make three shelters here, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’ He was still speaking when suddenly a bright cloud covered them with shadow, and suddenly from the cloud there came a voice which said, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favour. Listen to him.’When they heard this, the disciples fell on their faces, overcome with fear. But Jesus came up and touched them, saying, ‘Stand up, do not be afraid.’ And when they raised their eyes they saw no one but Jesus. 

As they came down from the mountain Jesus gave them this order, ‘Tell no one about this vision until the Son of man has risen from the dead.’

            10.  Messenger:  God is all Mighty, all Powerful —
                                            He remains with us
                                             truly present in the Eucharist. 







               Last Supper

                  1.  Luke 22:14-19                          

The supper

When the time came he took his place at table, and the apostles with him. And he said to them, ‘I have ardently longed to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; because, I tell you, I shall not eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.’ Then, taking a cup, he gave thanks and said, ‘Take this and share it among you, because from now on, I tell you, I shall never again drink wine until the kingdom of God comes.’

The institution of the Eucharist

Then he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ 

                  2.  Luke 22:20

He did the same with the cup after supper, and said, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood poured out for you.

              3.  John 6: 34-40

'Sir,' they said, 'give us that bread always.'
Jesus answered them:

I am the bread of life.
No one who comes to me will ever hunger;
no one who believes in me will ever thirst.
But, as I have told you,
you can see me and still you do not believe.
Everyone whom the Father gives me
   will come to me;
I will certainly not reject
anyone who comes to me,
because I have come from heaven,
not to do my own will,
but to do the will of him who sent me.
Now the will of him who sent me
is that I should lose nothing
of all that he has given to me,
but that I should raise it up
   on the last day.
It is my Father's will
that whoever sees the Son
   and believes in him
should have eternal life,
and that I should raise that person up
   on the last day.

              4.  John 6: 46-51

Not that anybody has seen the Father,
except him who has his being from God:
he has seen the Father.
In all truth I tell you,
everyone who believes has eternal life.
I am the bread of life.
Your fathers ate manna in the desert
and they are dead;
but this is the bread
   which comes down from heaven,
so that a person may eat it and not die.
I am the living bread
   which has come down from heaven.
Anyone who eats this bread
   will live for ever;
and the bread that I shall give
is my flesh, for the life of the world.'

                  5.  John 6:52-58

    Then the Jews started arguing among themselves, 'How can this man give us his flesh to eat?' Jesus replied to them:

In all truth I tell you,
if you do not eat
   the flesh of the Son of man
and drink his blood,
you have no life in you.
Anyone who does eat my flesh
   and drink my blood
has eternal life,
and I shall raise that person up
   on the last day.
For my flesh is real food
and my blood is real drink.
Whoever eats my flesh
   and drinks my blood
lives in me
and I live in that person.
As the living Father sent me
and I draw life from the Father,
so whoever eats me
   will also draw life from me.
This is the bread
   which has come down from heaven;
it is not like the bread our ancestors ate:
they are dead,
but anyone who eats this bread
   will live for ever.

                  6.  Jesus speaks: My children, I am Jesus, I give
                                                you Myself in the Holy
                                                Eucharist. I want you to
                                                come to Me. I want you to
                                                receive Me.

                                      John 6:35

  Jesus answered them:

  I am the bread of life.
  No one who comes to me will ever hunger;
  no one who believes in me will ever thirst.

               7.  Jesus speaks: I am Jesus, the Son of God, I am truly
                                                present in the Blessed Sacrament.

               8. Jesus speaks: When you come to Me in Holy Communion
                                                and want to receive Me worthily
                                                I will outpour My grace upon
                                                you, I will take you deeply
                                                into My Heart.


               9.  Jesus speaks: You are My little brides.
                                                I outpour My love upon you.
                                                I outpour My grace upon you.
                                                I gave My life for you on the cross —
                                                Now I give Myself to you in
                                                    the Holy Eucharist.
                                                Oh My little sweet children, I long for
                                                    you to come to Me —
                                                    today in the Holy Eucharist —
                                                I am God and you receive Me.



             10.  Jesus speaks: Oh My little babies, I take you
                                                to My Burning Eucharistic
                                                Heart on-fire for love of
                                                you and I outpour My love
                                                and My grace.
                                              Oh My little ones, I love you
                                                so very much.

Prayer for Union with Jesus

    Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994


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

    Oh Lamb of God, Who takes 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.


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.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

For Children

May 27, 1994

R. God asks us for two things: to love Him and to love one another. People hurt and they act nastily. They need our love. They do not need us to fight with them. Jesus' way is to love. We will enter heaven on how we loved God and loved one another.

He takes care of us. We have a loving Father and a loving mother. She mothers us as she mothered Jesus. She is always by our side. Jesus is always by our side. The more I learn to love Jesus, the more I love the Father.

Sometimes our parents suffer and are upset. Pray for them. God loves little children. Unless we love like little children, we won't enter into heaven. Little children have big hearts. They are so close to Jesus.

He loves you to pray to Him. He waits for you. He is the very same Jesus Who died on the cross. He wanted to stay with you so He instituted the sacrament of the Eucharist. Jesus comes to tell you He is with you this day in church and in the Eucharist.

He would die today for you alone. He loves you this much! He loves you. He can love you and be personal with you and have love for someone else at the same time because He is God.

The love of Jesus led Him to die for you, so you could one day go to heaven. He loves you so much He died for you and gave the last beat of His Heart and the last drop of His blood for you.

He longs and waits for you to come and be with Him in Communion. He wants to be your best friend. He wants you to love Him first. Then you will love your father and mother and sisters and brothers better also.

Pray to the Holy Spirit to know and love God. The Holy Spirit will change your life if you pray to Him. He is God. He has all knowledge and He loves you.

Mary suffered, as Jesus suffered, for love of you. She has a sinless Heart. If you pray to Mary, if you love God through her Heart, she will help you to love God.
