Acts 20: 28-38

    Be on your guard for yourselves and for all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you the guardians, to feed the Church of God which he bought with the blood of his own Son.

    I know quite well that when I have gone fierce wolves will invade you and will have no mercy on the flock. Even from your own ranks there will be men coming forward with a travesty of the truth on their lips to induce the disciples to follow them. So be on your guard, remembering how night and day for three years I never slackened in counselling each one of you with tears. And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace that has power to build you up and to give you your inheritance among all the sanctified.

    I have never asked anyone for money or clothes; you know for yourselves that these hands of mine earned enough to meet my needs and those of my companions. By every means I have shown you that we must exert ourselves in this way to support the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, who himself said, "There is more happiness in giving than in receiving." ’ 

    When he had finished speaking he knelt down with them all and prayed. By now they were all in tears; they put their arms round Paul’s neck and kissed him; what saddened them most was his saying they would never see his face again. Then they escorted him to the ship.


                I like how Saint Paul says "the Church
                    of God that he acquired with his own Blood."

                God has gifted us —
                God has given us so many graces

                The sharing of His life in us

                God gives us this gift and

                He gives us special graces to help us grow
                    in the spiritual life, but we must
                    say "yes" to God and cooperate with
                    the grace —

                God can give us a great grace so we don't
                    keep falling into a habitual sin of
                    maybe hurting others — being disobedient —
                    acting in unloving and possessive ways, jealous
                    ways, seeking dominance for dominance sake,
                    but the bottom line is we have to say 'yes'
                    to that grace and quit acting jealous, admit
                    our faults and sins and want to change our
                    behavior —

                Or if we are controlling and acting on impulse
                    seeing only ourselves — being isolated and
                    doing things that block God's plan by
                    our controlling, possessive, selfish
                    ways —
                    we must admit our behavior to change —

                Some people won't move —
                    like a little 4 year old — they can hold out
                    until they are spanked by mom or dad —
                    because they want their way

                And when they are acting in a bad way, they want
                    you like a baby to "kiss their boo-boo's"

                Adults growing in holiness don't act like
                    pouting - I demand my way babies —

                Some people will divorce rather than change
                    being in control and having their way —
                    God wants us to love our family —
                    modeling our family after the Trinity —

                God wrote this script — to be like a pouty baby
                    in our relationships mean we need to
                    grow in our love of God (in that is our strength)
                    love of others as ourselves

                A person after a divorce can spend their whole life
                    trying to prove they are right and not seeing the army
                    of people they lay flat while they act more like
                    a baby getting their way and proving they are right

                What about living every day as the Spouse of Jesus —
                    like it says February 23, 1994 Blue Book II

                The Blue Books teach us how to love God and others
                    not be selfish


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


                I cried a river Jesus said — a river of love for you
                    as I hung on the cross

                And yet you gave into your pouty ways and did not
                    see My wounds for your sins of unloving
                    anger you played like a violin hurting those
                    I died for

                You said "no" to Me as the blood poured from
                    My body, because you could hold out
                    and pout and be mad instead of thinking
                    of the sun, the golden day, the children's
                    voices at play — You were jealous when
                    you smiled — What about those you lived
                    with and should have loved in your vocation,
                    married, religious

                Were you smiling to the outsiders and hating those
                    you lived with —
                    I asked you to work together to spread love

                R. Love gives —
                    Love in the family is modeled after the

                    Love in the Church is modeled after the

                    The Trinity is 3 Persons in one God —
                        Unity — walking hand-in-hand


                    The two will be one flesh

                Father Carter says —


From Response to God's Love - Chapter 8

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.


                A person that does not see how special they
                    are to God and see how God loves them —
                    really believe it

                    can act unloving to others to get attention
                        and love — then they can hurt others
                        with their selfish, bitter ways of
                        demanding someone help them in their
                        when only — they can help themselves
                        recognizing their unloving ways
                        and telling God they are sorry —

                Going to confession and telling the priest they are
                    unloving and angry and bitter, blaming
                    and manipulating others or some punishing
                    others for their unhappiness

                Remember Joseph and his brothers
                Do we rejoice in thanksgiving to God for the
                    gifts of others in helping to build the

                Or if we give a little we want someone to
                    appreciate us like a four year old
                    expecting praise from mommy —

                My mommy died when I was five —

                God calls us to hold on and let go

                To go through doors and to know the 'invisible
                    string' we have
                    we love those who are with us and not with us
                    we love people who die and we think go to heaven
                    we forgive those who hurt us and not carry
                        a bag of hatred for how they hurt
                        us projecting it on others

                Here is today's Gospel

                Before Jesus went to the bitter passion He


John 17: 11-19

Holy Father,
keep those you have given me
   true to your name,
so that they may be one like us.
While I was with them, 
I kept those you had given me
    true to your name.
I have watched over them
    and not one is lost
except one who was destined to be lost,
and this was to fulfil the scriptures.
But now I am coming to you
and I say these things in the world
to share my joy with them to the full.
I passed your word on to them,
and the world hated them,
because they belong to the world
no more than I belong to the world.
I am not asking you
    to remove them from the world,
but to protect them from the Evil One.
They do not belong to the world
any more than I belong to the world.
Consecrate them in the truth;
your word is truth.
As you sent me into the world, 
I have sent them into the world,
and for their sake I consecrate myself
so that they too
    may be consecrated in truth.


                Jesus: When I hung on the cross, I bled for you —
                    I loved you this much
                    I love you this much today —

                I see you, I cry out, "I died for you"

                You cry back — "Sorry Jesus I am angry
                    and I want love here below and this
                    person didn't make me satisfied —
                    so I punish them holding back
                    money, services etc"

                That is a heart that is wrapped in darkness —
                    Darkness in anger, revenge, self-
                        absorption — looking for others to
                        satisfy your angry heart —
                        is a life of misery —
                        and it grows —
                        misery gets blacker —

                    Who will fix your heart —

                    You have a free will —

                You don't want to forgive others —
                    ask for God's forgiveness for your sins —
                        of unloving, hateful ways

                    So you are miserable trying to get someone
                        to come while you pout and demand
                        your way

                What marriage would last with this selfishness —

                You are here to learn to be one
                You are here to live the Gospel message

                John 17

                "Holy Father, keep them in your name
                    that you have given me
                    so that they may be one just as we
                        are one."

                R. We are to model our families, our communities,
                    our Churches after the Trinity —
                We are to live the Gospel message —
                We are to witness to the Gospel
                We are to love like the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
                    not be selfish like Adam and Eve who
                    wanted to be equal to God


John 17: 20-26

I pray not only for these
but also for those
who through their teaching
    will come to believe in me.
May they all be one,
just as, Father, you are in me
    and I am in you,
so that they also may be in us,
so that the world may believe
    it was you who sent me.
I have given them the glory
    you gave to me,
that they may be one as we are one.
With me in them and you in me,
may they be so perfected in unity
that the world will recognise
    that it was you who sent me
and that you have loved them
    as you have loved me.

I want those you have given me
to be with me where I am,
so that they may always see my glory
which you have given me
because you loved me
before the foundation of the world.
Father, Upright One,
the world has not known you,
but I have known you,
and these have known
that you have sent me.
I have made your name known to them a
nd will continue to make it known,
so that the love with which you loved me
may be in them,
and so that I may be in them.

Holy Spirit Prayer

Come, Holy Spirit, almighty Sanctifier, God of love, who filled the Virgin Mary with grace, who wonderfully changed the hearts of the apostles, who endowed all Your martyrs with miraculous courage, come and sanctify us. Enlighten our minds, strengthen our wills, purify our consciences, rectify our judgment, set our hearts on fire, and preserve us from the misfortunes of resisting Your inspirations. Amen.


John 21: 15-19

When they had eaten, Jesus said to Simon Peter, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me more than these others do?’ He answered, ‘Yes, Lord, you know I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my lambs.’ A second time he said to him, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me?’ He replied, ‘Yes, Lord, you know I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Look after my sheep.’ Then he said to him a third time, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me?’ Peter was hurt that he asked him a third time, ‘Do you love me?’ and said, ‘Lord, you know everything; you know I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my sheep.



October 5, 1992 - 3:30am

R. Dear Jesus, Give me Your hand to write this book for you. I am your servant. I want to be Your hand to this world. If you, Lord Jesus, would write a book, what would you say?

Jesus:   My dear children,

   Today I come to deliver a message to each of you. I want to tell you of each person's dignity, of their beauty and their self-worth. Each child is, oh, so uniquely precious to My Most Sacred Heart. Each child is full of the talents I have given to them. Each person is divinely created by God and given all these gifts to be happy and love one another.

   The problem comes when you feel you will be left out. That you will be left by another who has trodden on you and will do it again. I see you all as My most precious children. I watch your every move and know all pain and anguish in your heart. My Heart aches, you have insecure feelings about yourself. I came to this earth I died for you. I felt cold, hungry, lonely on this earth. You need not worry that no one knows the pain and anguish in your heart. God created you with such special gifts and talents. It is important for you to raise above your wound and forgive those who hurt you.

   You need only turn your will and your life over to Me and I will guide you in all your ways. I have all the Power. Many are not of My ways. The key to life is to recognize your faults, but still know you are this precious gift of My Father a gift to this world. This world is in need of your strength. Running yourself down, blaming others hurting them can cause you misery and pain. At this very moment, you are the precious creation of God!! You must operate with Me in your heart.

   You need not run yourself down. I am with you every day guiding your ways, lest your foot stumble and you lose your way. You will not wander far from your path if every day you keep bringing your focus back to Me. If you dare let Me be at the helm, if you dare to really let Me run your life, I will do with you such wonders that you yourself would be amazed. But you will know with such ease when you did these things that you did not do them alone. You will know My power, moving the mountain, My power chipping at the stone, My power working on your hardest problem and you will be set free.

   Oh yes, you will be set free and know a serenity that only comes from letting go and letting Me run your life. To you, My child, I have given all that is good. I made you My holy soldier, My warrior in a world of pain and hatred. You are the light that shines in the darkness, you are the coat to a cold child, you are the smile that warms a troubled and lonely heart. You are the comfort for everyone you meet, because My most precious Heart powers you, smiles through you, understands and loves through you.

   Love your fellows for Me. There are so many troubled hearts that need to know My love. I can love through you if you let Me, I can be their friend through you if you let Me. I am He who comforts you and you are he who comforts them. My power is endless, it never runs out, there is not a power failure EVER. In your darkest hour, My light shines in the darkness and I say to you, "Oh blessed of My Father, look at yourself with awe, you are My creation, you are indeed so precious to Me, you are My light to this world, you are My hands and My feet and most of all My Heart."

   Oh, you are My loving Heart, to those who are bowed down, to those who are lost in the darkness, you carry My smile and wear My armor in a world that is trying to tear one another down with hate and ugliness. There is gentleness, there is love, there is hope in you, if you open yourself up to Me. Be My knight to the world, wear My armor. I am your God and I will protect you from the darkness. Plug into My power, be not afraid, I go before you always and you can rest in My arms when you feel weary. You can put your head in My lap and weep, you will know, I am truly with you and you are My light to this world. I created you so special - to cast out fear in the darkness, to clothe the naked, to give hope to the oppressed, to be as I live in you and love through you and you are My smile and I touch My hurting ones through your love.

You are he who loves this world. You must stay plugged into My power-source This world is hungry for My love. It needs My love, I give to them through you. I am your God and I made you as a gift to the world. You are filled.

Focus on Me and your life will be abundant and whole, joy in suffering, freedom but you can take the knocks because you will know you do not go it alone, but with Me. I love you My precious child.    



                January 1992

                . . .

                    Cling to Me and be not afraid, though you
                go in raging waters, I am there with
                you, My rod and my staff guide your way and
                My light is there to illuminate your path
                Oh ye, beloved of My Father, friend and lover
                let the Holy Spirit embrace you. God loves
                you, I am your God.
                I listen to your cries and comfort you, I
                turn not away, I love you, I know
                you and I want to be with you at every

                    I made your tears as a way
                to release your sorrow and cleanse yourself
                of your pain. I am in touch with you
                and I walk with you at every turn of your
                path — know Me — you are not alone, I am
                here with you now, in this silence,

                I speak to you, no whisper, these are
                My words to you, I am here in this
                room and in your heart and I love you with
                My love. My love is Divine Love. Feel My presence, warm
                and close in your heart. I am your
                God, I am alive. I
                neither slumber or sleep. I know
                your sadness deep in your heart.
                I am He who comforts you and I say again,
                be not afraid, I love your every cell and I
                am forever within you — Cry out to
                Me and I hear each cry and I free you
                from your loneliness and pain. Don't
                be afraid and lonely, I am here with you.
                I love you.



                    Fallen man



                Jesus: Some are so stubborn they don't want to

                R. I saw a lady at Mass today
                her little boy came to a party at my house when one
                    of my children was 6

                They went through grade school and
                    high school together

                When her son was about 22 after
                    college — he got cancer and died —
                    just like that he died —

                Tragedy many times moves us closer to


                    February 21, 1992

                    Jesus: . . .

                        LET GO - TRUST in ME — be
                    with Me and turn it over — I will
                    not leave you orphaned. I will
                    be with you that is My Promise.
                    By name I have called you —
                    You don't need a doctor for your
                    throat — you need to relax and
                    let go — what does it profit a man
                    if he gains the whole world and
                    loses his soul.


                       April 2, 1992

                       R. . . .

                       Thank you for your relationship,
                       Thank you for the Holy Spirit and my
                       heavenly mother, thank you for real
                       joy which I now feel in my heart.
                       Thank you for the image of the
                       wall of rocks and the door for me
                       to walk through.

                            That was my image from you, at that point
                        seeing the gray rocks oh so close like a
                        wall and a door, you were taking me to a
                        new beginning in my life — a life of
                        surrendering and realizing that you are
                        running my life. What is for today? I do your will.
                        That is what is to be. I am
                        filled with Your love and Your joy as I
                        walk through this door into surrender
                        with you — on the other side there are
                        still rocks, but they are not closing in
                        they are opening up and the light, as the
                        warm sun is now seen atop the
                        rocks and my body is warm and secure in
                        Your love. You oh my Lord are in

                        the driver's seat. I walk through that door.
                        My relationship with you is alive and new,
                        and I surrender and walk through the door.
                        I have a deep relationship with
                        my children and my close friends — they
                        are there, all around me — I Lord Jesus
                        walk through the door — the rocks
                        open up and I am not closed in anymore,
                        but I can always look up and see the
                        opening and the sky. You are in the
                        driver's seat, you are rowing my
                        boat and driving my car, though I
                        tread in raging waters, I do not
                        need to be afraid, you are there with
                        your rod  and your staff and you comfort
                        me, I am not afraid, your warmth
                        and your love is always there, I am
                        secure, I am your child, I am
                        protected and held and you will stand
                        for me, you will say, she is indeed my
                        child, I love her, she is mine.
                        She is my child.

                        Jesus:  I will never forget you,
                        I will not leave you orphaned, I
                        will hold your hand and lead you.
                        You dwell in My Heart at this moment.
                        Die to the old ways not likened to
                        Me — to live a deeper life of
                        resurrection in Me.  I am here and I am
                        still in your heart. My love for you is
                        real, I will not abandon you. I
                        will nurture you and prune you and
                        watch you grow in my light, I
                        will be your light, you will
                        not flicker or fade, but be constantly aglow
                        with the light of my love, I am ever
                        present in your heart. Reach out and
                        touch my heart, it is warm and alive
                        and beating for you, know you are loved
                        child. No earthly person can give this
                        love to you. Look up and see the heaven and
                        count the stars if you can, your
                        life will be even brighter, brighter
                        than all the stars.  Bathe yourself
                        in my love and know it is constant and
                        there for you, I am your God — you
                        shall have no Gods before me, nothing
                        can compare to this love, I give to you.
                        Do not turn to the world, I will provide
                        you with nurturing and love, with
                        peace and joy, do my work and be attentive
                        to the voice within you, it is there and
                        you must constantly listen, you will
                        know when I am talking to you —
                        listen my child, I do not slumber or
                        sleep, I am attentive to your needs
                        and I love you, I will strengthen and
                        protect you always. Jesus died
                        upon the Cross, Christ arose from
                        the dead and you too will live a deeper
                        life of resurrection in Me. You are through the
                        door, surrender to Me. Listen to
                        my directions and carry them out, I am in
                        your life, I am in your heart, I am He
                        who comforts you, do not, my child,
                        be afraid, walk in the confidence
                        of knowing I your God walk
                        before and with you every step
                        of the way. I am he who comforts and walks
                        with you. I love you, I love you, Jesus


                            Saturday 1992

                            R.  I thought I smelled roses two times
                            last night and this morning, what it did
                            was make me feel honored and
                            important, I am honored.

                                I am not perfect, but I try to be good,
                            I am so lucky to be here and feel
                            the breeze and listen to the ocean.

                                I have You my sweet Jesus  —
                            I give You my life  — I have the
                            wonderfulness of these children
                            you allowed me to bring into the
                            world and share my life with them,
                            I am indeed blessed in so many ways,
                            You are my rock and My
                            strength, I am Your putty, I hope
                            when I am home, I can close my eyes
                            and come to this place in my
                            heart, the flowers, knowing Your life in me,
                            the mercy of God and yes oh yes all my
                            gifts  — this moment of love with my
                            children seeing each child's specialness
                            and loving the moments of being here
                            with them, Please God I pray to You to
                            send your special grace and love into
                            each soul and with Your precious blood
                            paint each soul with Your blood  —
                            solid and thick to know that we are free
                            from outside forces.  I denounce satan
                            in Your name Lord Jesus. You are my best
                            friend, Jesus, I love You so much  —
                            Jesus, Jesus help us all to be
                            holy  — Cast the devil far away
                            from my family and every
                            thing in this world  — God help
                            us to be holy  — Outpour Your
                            grace on my husband and
                            children and forgive us all for
                            anything we ever have done
                            to have unity and love and to be
                            a strong persons loving in our
                            Church and the world  —

                            Jesus, Jesus, I consecrate our
                            hearts as a family to You and to
                            Mary our Immaculate Mother.
                            Protect us from the evil one  —
                            help us to be joined hand and hand
                            in the hearts of Jesus and Mary  —
                            Let my family be so united to the
                            precious Hearts of Jesus and Mary to
                            ward off any evil attempts
                            against us and help us grow in
                            greater holiness.

                                Our strength and our courage is
                            from You dear Jesus and Mary and
                            through Your most loving hearts  —
                            Our love will endure in the hearts
                            of Jesus and Mary  — You, Lord, are
                            our strength  —

                                We ask for healing for any dysfunction  —
                            generational healing  — that love will
                            abound in the Hearts of Jesus and
                            Mary  — I ask for this healing so we
                            will be one in the Hearts of Jesus
                            and Mary  —

                                Our family dwelling in the
                            Hearts of Jesus and Mary  —

                                Dear Father, I love You, My Divine
                            God hear my prayer  — help us to
                            be heirs of the kingdom  —

                                Oh most blessed Holy Spirit  —

                            I beg for the gifts of wisdom, understanding,
                            counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety,
                            and Fear of the Lord  — I beg to have
                            love in our family  — Holy Spirit  —
                            the fire of God's love.

                            Holy Spirit shower on my family Your
                            gifts  —

                            I want the fire of Your love over
                            all our heads  —
                            impart to us the fire of the tongues
                            of love  —

                            You gave Your gifts to the apostles  —
                            please Holy Spirit give them to my
                            family  — to the world.

                            Protect us from the fears of the world
                            hurting us with their errors.

                            Your love is Divine Love.

                            Your love is unending  —

                            Your love is everlasting  —

                            You my God

                            You my Savior

                            You Oh Holy Spirit

                            I know You never slumber or sleep  —
                            I know the very hairs of my head are
                            numbered, every freckle and white
                            spot counted and You care for me
                            with precious love  — You know
                            everything about me  —

                                You know the love of my heart  —
                            on fire for You and the love for each
                            child and the world  — a furnace that
                            is hot and a blaze with the fire of
                            Your love  —

                                Oh Holy Spirit  — I love  — I know
                            more Your understanding and Your wisdom,
                            Your counsel  — I want my heart to
                            be consumed with love  —

                                God help me to spread Your love
                            to the world  —

                                Fill me with Your grace  —

                                I am Your child, God

                                You love me with Divine Love  —

                                You are my strength

                                You have all the power,

                            I give You Lord Jesus, my will
                                and my life  —
                                I surrender to the fires of Your
                                    love  —

                            I give in  — Help me Jesus to let go
                                and let You run the show,
                                help me to let go to You, Jesus  —

                                I am Your putty.

                                You are my God.

                                heal me

                                put me in Your hands  —

                                let me feel Your presence with me.

                            Jesus says:

                                "Listen to my direction. I talk to
                            you. Write these letters every day
                            as you get up from bed.
                            A new letter every morning  —
                            my direction will be with you  —
                            new life  — I come to give you
                            new life.

                            You will have peace  —

                            Your children are guarded.

                            Your life will be directed by Me.

                            It will be easy for you to turn
                                your life over to Me.

                            I love you, I will not leave
                                you orphaned  — nor
                                your children  —

                            celebrate and know My gift
                                is at hand.
                                I am your God  —

                                                Jesus the Lord

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."

     Remember the image of Our Lady

and address

     Those using the special statues
will be united to us in a special way —
We want you to pray the Shepherds of

with this statue, Fatima/Clearwater glass, they have
reported that their families have received special
blessings. With this statue it is important to pray
the prayers in the red prayer manual and consecrate
your home and family to the Sacred Heart and
Immaculate Heart.
