From Tell My People

Reparation for Sin

Jesus: "My beloved priest-companion, tell My people that the ugly face of sin covers the earth as never before in the history of the human race. My image, which should shine forth brilliantly over the whole earth, is seriously marred by the hideousness of sin. My Father's justice demands reparation. Tell My people to offer their actions in reparation for all the sins whereby the Triune God is so much offended. My Heart cries out for reparation, especially for sins committed against My Eucharistic presence. My Heart hates sin, but loves the sinner. All who are sorry for their sins will find in My Heart overflowing graces of mercy.

"My people should receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation often, even if they have no serious sins to confess. The graces of this Sacrament give powerful graces for the fight against temptation. I am Lord and Master. Please do as I request!"

Reflection: In our determination to avoid sin, let us often recall the terrible sufferings which sin caused Our Loving Savior: the cruel crowning with thorns, the tearing of His sacred flesh by the soldiers' merciless scourging, the heartless hammering of nails through His sacred hands and feet, and all the rest. Who can prayerfully look upon the suffering Christ and not be repulsed by the hideousness of sin?


Consecration to the Hearts
of Jesus and Mary

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people that I desire all to consecrate themselves to My Sacred Heart and to Mary's Immaculate Heart. Tell them not to just recite words in making the act of consecration, but to realize what they are saying. Consecration to Our Hearts means a total gift of self. It means handing over everything to Me and to My Mother. Consecration means a willingness to surrender completely to Me. In Baptism one is consecrated to Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. But how many fail to live out their consecration! I extend to all the invitation to renew this baptismal consecration through consecration to My Heart and to My Mother's Heart.

"My beloved companion, I have taught you what this consecration means. I have given you great peace, joy, and happiness because you have made this consecration. I have taught you that you are to renew this act of consecration each day, I constantly remind you that you are to pray each day for the grace to more and more live the consecration. I have taught you that your consecration to Me and My Mother means that you constantly surrender yourself to Us and to Our care. I have taught you that the more you surrender yourself to Me, the more I live in you and through you and for you. I have taught you that My great love for you longs to draw you more deeply into My Heart. I have shown you that I wish your Mother Mary to place you there within My Heart, and that the more you dwell within her heart, the more deeply she places you within My Heart. Dwelling within Our Hearts, the Holy Spirit fashions you more and more in My likeness. The Father thus looks upon you with greater favor and takes you more closely to Himself. Tell My people all these wondrous truths. I am Lord and Master, and I desire all to listen to My words!"

Reflection: In the above message, Jesus describes what is involved in living our consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. What beautiful truths He puts before us! We know that the living out of our consecration is not always easy. Sometimes it is very difficult. At all times, and especially in most difficult times, we should remind ourselves how much Jesus and Mary love us, and that living out our consecration is our "thank you," our return of love.

Children of Mary

Mary: "My beloved priest-son, how often I have embraced you! How often I have told you how much I love you! How often, at your request, I have held you in my arms as my child. You have told me you realize how helpless you are of yourself, but how strong and secure you feel dwelling in my heart and Jesus' Heart. Your sense of your littleness and helplessness endears you to me all the more. I take you ever more securely to my maternal and Immaculate Heart. Tell all my people of the riches you have found within my heart. Tell them how I place you within my Son's Heart. Tell them that, because of my motherly action, you are now more closely united with Jesus than ever before. Tell my people to come to my heart and draw forth similar riches. Tell all my little ones that Jesus, Who is Lord and Master, bids me to lead all to His Sacred Heart. The more my little ones dwell within my Immaculate Heart, the more I place them within Jesus' Heart. Oh, how I love all my little ones! How I love to bring them to the Heart of Jesus!"

Reflection: Again, let us remind ourselves that we live in the Age of the Two Hearts. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are inseparable. The more we dwell in Mary's heart, the more she places us within Jesus' Heart. Within these Two Hearts, the Holy Spirit fashions us more and more in the likeness of Christ, and the more we become like Christ, the more closely He unites us to the Father.



                November 28, 2008

                    The Holy Spirit gives us the gift of
                piety — this moves man to worship
                God as his Father —

                God is our Father

                Virtues help put order in our life —
                Order as God intends

                The gift of piety gives man order —
                Submission of man to God —

                We need justice in this world and
                    its related virtues

                We are to be just, to be obedient —
                    to have gratitude and truthfulness —

                We are to make life friendly and
                    enjoyable —

                We are to obey the commandments
                of God — to follow the precepts
                of God

                    We pray to the Holy Spirit for wisdom
                    We pray for peace and order

                    A good intention does not
                justify an evil act —



Romans 8:5-9

Those who are living by their natural inclinations have their minds on the things human nature desires; those who live in the Spirit have their minds on spiritual things. And human nature has nothing to look forward to but death, while the Spirit looks forward to life and peace, because the outlook of disordered human nature is opposed to God, since it does not submit to God's Law, and indeed it cannot, and those who live by their natural inclinations can never be pleasing to God. You, however, live not by your natural inclinations, but by the Spirit, since the Spirit of God has made a home in you. Indeed, anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.



December 3, 2008 - St. Xavier


Jeremiah 23: 5-8

Look, the days are coming, 
    Yahweh declares, 
when I shall raise an upright Branch 
    for David; 
he will reign as king and be wise, 
doing what is just and upright 
    in the country. 
In his days Judah will triumph 
and Israel live in safety. 
And this is the name he will be called, ‘Yahweh–is–our–Saving–Justice.’ " 

    ‘So, look, the days are coming, Yahweh declares, when people will no longer say, "As Yahweh lives who brought the Israelites out of Egypt," but, "As Yahweh lives who led back and brought home the offspring of the House of Israel from the land of the north and all the countries to which he had driven them, to live on their own soil." ’


Matthew 1: 18-24

This is how Jesus Christ came to be born. His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph; but before they came to live together she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. Her husband Joseph, being an upright man and wanting to spare her disgrace, decided to divorce her informally. He had made up his mind to do this when suddenly the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, ‘Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because she has conceived what is in her by the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son and you must name him Jesus, because he is the one who is to save his people from their sins.’ Now all this took place to fulfil what the Lord had spoken through the prophet:

Look! the virgin is with child
    and will give birth to a son
whom they will call Immanuel,

a name which means ‘God–is–with–us’. When Joseph woke up he did what the angel of the Lord had told him to do: he took his wife to his home; he had not had intercourse with her when she gave birth to a son; and he named him Jesus.


                God we consecrate the world to You in far as
                    we are able.

                We consecrate the Church to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart.
                We consecrate the world to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart.
                We consecrate our families to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart.

                I smell Your fragrance my Jesus —
                    My prayers go as incense to You —
                    Oh Lord hear my prayer
                    Let my cry come unto You Lord
                    Let my prayer raise like incense to You Lord.


Song of Songs 2: 8-14

I hear my love. 
See how he comes 
leaping on the mountains, 
bounding over the hills. 
My love is like a gazelle, 
like a young stag. 

See where he stands 
behind our wall. 
He looks in at the window, 
he peers through the opening. 

My love lifts up his voice, 
he says to me, 
‘Come then, my beloved, 
my lovely one, come. 
For see, winter is past, 
the rains are over and gone. 

‘Flowers are appearing on the earth. 
The season of glad songs has come, 
the cooing of the turtledove is heard in our land. 
The fig tree is forming its first figs 
and the blossoming vines give out their fragrance. 
Come then, my beloved, 
my lovely one, come. 

‘My dove, hiding in the clefts of the rock, 
in the coverts of the cliff, 
show me your face, 
let me hear your voice; 
for your voice is sweet 
and your face is lovely.’


                    We dedicate ourselves to You God
                    We give You our wills and our lives —
                    We love You deeply God
                    Hear our prayers for the priests, the Church
                        and the world.


Malachi 3: 1-4, 23-24

‘Look, I shall send my messenger to clear a way before me. And suddenly the Lord whom you seek will come to his Temple; yes, the angel of the covenant, for whom you long, is on his way, says Yahweh Sabaoth. Who will be able to resist the day of his coming? Who will remain standing when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire, like fullers’ alkali. He will take his seat as refiner and purifier; he will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, so that they can make the offering to Yahweh with uprightness. The offering of Judah and Jerusalem will then be acceptable to Yahweh as in former days, as in the years of old.

    ‘Look, I shall send you the prophet Elijah before the great and awesome Day of Yahweh comes. He will reconcile parents to their children and children to their parents, to forestall my putting the country under the curse of destruction.’


                    Dear God

                        Let my tongue be loosed to praise You.
                            my God

                        For our days are short here and
                            our lives are so important to you.

                        We are children of the Father
                            and our lives here on earth are short
                            our lives are given to serve You —

                        And night follows day and day night and so on.

                        Holy Spirit that we would live with You
                            filling us —

                        Let us live in the Spirit to serve You —

                        The devil presses in and wants us to be
                            enslaved to him —

                        God works in structure
                        God wants obedience to those teaching
                            His truth and being over us —

                Oh God grant us Your wisdom so we
                    will serve You and not give into the
                    promptings of satan who wants to
                    trip us up

                I speak of order — for our mission is a cry to
                    help bring order to this disordered
                    world —

                God help us to be empty
                That You will fill us
                So we will follow Your way
                The way to happiness
                Impart to us wisdom to follow You

                Open Your gates God —
                    Let our hearts be open and ready to enter there -
                    For I was hungry, God, and You fed me
                    You fed me with Yourself —
                    You gave me Your Body and Blood
                    Oh Dawn of God — let me see the light
                    that I will truly please You, now and forever

                Oh King of all Kings I live to serve You and
                    spread Your light on this earth —
                    that men will praise and love You —
                    that men will do this all the days of their lives
                        here below

                Let us live by God's laws — not the way of the
                    world —
                    that men will be lifted up
                    not enslaved to satan - who traps men and they
                        give in as they live more and more the
                        ways of human wounded men who
                        give into the ways of the flesh

                Let us live by the Spirit of God and not give
                    into the ways of the flesh
                    Not carousing and seeking vain glory —
                    but living in peace and love following
                    in the footsteps of Jesus

                Open to us God - the door that leads to spiritual
                    victory - let us live trying to grow
                    more and more in the Spirit

                Fill us God with Your Life —

                Holy Spirit, God the Father, Jesus, Jesus dwell in us

                For I was hungry and you gave me to eat —
                            thirsty and you gave me to drink
                            naked and you clothed me

                A round screw fits in a round hole
                A hand in the right size glove

                Why, oh God, do I scamper around like I
                    do and miss the boat so many times —
                    when in the boat there is safety and
                    in the cold waters — much distress

                Harken to me God and let my cry come to Thee —
                    like incense, for it is a cry that
                    the people of the world, obey You —
                    not be rebellious and live trying to
                    be molded more and more in Your image
                        and likeness

                Oh Shepherd of Israel harken and come
                    to lead the strayed ones home to
                    your most Sacred Heart

                Sing — Oh Shepherd of Israel harken
                            Arise and we shall be saved

                            Rescue us with Your mighty hand
                            Impart to us Your knowledge that
                            we may know You and be joyous —
                            For in You we are made happy —
                            You satisfy the hungry soul —
                            You fill us with Your life —
                            We love more as You love —
                            We scamper less and less and
                            We love because we are more
                                likened to You

                Oh Shepherd of Israel harken
                    hear us and we shall be saved

                    You are the Savior
                    Oh God save us from this bondage
                    Oh God harken to my call
                    Oh God help us


1 John 2: 12-17

I am writing to you, children, 
because your sins have been forgiven 
    through his name. 
I am writing to you, fathers, 
because you have come to know 
    the One who has existed 
        since the beginning. 
I am writing to you, young people, 
because you have overcome the Evil One. 
I have written to you, children, 
because you have come to know 
    the Father. 
I have written to you, parents, 
because you have come to know 
    the One who has existed 
        since the beginning. 
I have written to you, young people, 
because you are strong, 
and God’s word remains in you, 
and you have overcome the Evil One. 
Do not love the world 
or what is in the world. 
If anyone does love the world, 
the love of the Father 
    finds no place in him, 
because everything there is 
    in the world—
disordered bodily desires, 
disordered desires of the eyes, 
pride in possession—
is not from the Father 
but is from the world.
And the world, 
    with all its disordered desires, 
is passing away. 
But whoever does the will of God 
remains for ever.


                Come, oh Messiah, Come to Your little ones
                    that we will know You and be saved —

                Oh Messiah Come

                Sing Oh Come, Oh Come Emmanuel
                Sing Save Us Oh Lord

                R. Let your people praise You, in the
                    Let our lives be holy to serve You —
                    Not giving into rebellious debauchery and
                        carousing, but pure like
                        the Virgin Mary

                    Oh God let our lives be lives, lived in
                        You —

                    Oh Shepherd of Israel hear us —
                        Come and we will be saved

                    Arise, oh Lord, hear our cries oh Lord

                Sing: A Song from Jesus


                Impart to me wisdom that I will walk in the
                    ways of the Lord — that I will walk
                    in the light — to be a testimony to the
                    world —
                    Come, Lord Jesus, fill me with Your grace —
                    Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell abundantly in
                        My graced baptized soul

                Holy Spirit come and renew the face of the Earth
                Oh Shepherd of Israel hear us

                Meter —
                the rhythm of the saints —

                Singing abundantly the glory of God —

                Foolish man seeks for his own vain glory —
                Wanting dominance —

                What does he reach to prove among his fellows —
                    I am your king —

                Men are under God —

                Like Eve in the garden she wanted to be equal to

                Real power and happiness is found in following
                    Jesus — He makes us fishers of men —
                    The arrogant type think he (the arrogant person) is the big
                        fish caught and delivered and ready to go —

                    Fish are given for feeding — bringing greater
                        life to men

                    Under the sea is a beauteous world that
                        many men do not even know
                        about — and yet some men want to
                        act as if they know all things — rather than
                        being open and docile and learning every day
                        about the plan of the Creator —

                    The selfish, ignorant man - lives life to
                        prove that he knows it all
                        block head — he blocks his own light and
                        we are here to grow —
                                        to learn about God and
                                        the mystery of His love



                Reach for God —

                Always helping to lift men up to know the
                    ways of God as we recognize our
                    ignorance about this ultimate mystery and
                    humbly seek this — our life - time goal —
                    insight into the hidden mystery

                Reach men —

                When the world is worldly — the
                    Church is to lift them up

                    God sends a messenger to renew

                Oh God help us to follow You in strict obedience
                    to live by Your laws, to obey the
                    commandments —
                    to live in the Word of God and
                    be fed at the table of the Lord

                To bear fruit — GIVING

                Eve ate the fruit — SELFISH

                I am yours Lord, I come to do Your will —
                    I surrender my will and my life to You

                Jesus died upon the cross
                Christ arose from the dead

                And just as sure as the sun will rise
                Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior will come again


1 John 2: 3-11

In this way we know
that we have come to know him, 
if we keep his commandments.
Whoever says, ‘I know him’
without keeping his commandments, 
is a liar,
and truth has no place in him.
But anyone who does keep his word, 
in such a one
   God’s love truly reaches its perfection.
This is the proof 
that we are in God.
Whoever claims
    to remain in him
must act as he acted.
My dear friends,
this is not a new commandment 
   I am writing for you,
but an old commandment
that you have had from the beginning;
the old commandment
   is the message you have heard.
Yet in another way, I am writing 
    a new commandment for you
—and this is true for you,
    just as much as for him—
for darkness is passing away
and the true light is already shining.
Whoever claims to be in light
but hates his brother
is still in darkness.
Anyone who loves his brother
    remains in light
 and there is in him
    nothing to make him fall away.
But whoever hates his brother
    is in darkness
and is walking about in darkness
not knowing where he is going,
because darkness has blinded him.



                Why are we so haughty?

                Why are we so blind?

                Jesus came a baby —

                Jesus died for our sins —

                Only a fool denies they're wrong

                A wise man seeks to be molded more and more in
                    the image of God —

                He is like silver that is prepared by being
                    burned in the fire — made more
                    beautified — refined for great beauty


Luke 2: 29-32

"Now Master, you can let your servant go in peace, just as you promised; because my eyes have seen the salvation which you have prepared for all the nations to see, a light to enlighten the pagans and the glory of your people, Israel."


Luke 1: 69-75

and he has established for us 
    a saving power 
in the House of his servant David, 
just as he proclaimed, 
by the mouth of his holy prophets 
    from ancient times, 
that he would save us from our enemies 
and from the hands of all those 
    who hate us

and show faithful love to our ancestors
and so keep in mind his holy covenant
This was the oath he swore 
to our father Abraham, 
that he would grant us, free from fear, 
to be delivered 
    from the hands of our enemies, 
to serve him in holiness and uprightness 
in his presence, all our days.


                Oh God give to me a clean heart
                Oh God give to me wisdom that I may grow
                    in your ways
                Oh God I give myself to you —

                I surrender my will and my life —

                Have mercy on me God —

                For I have sinned

                Wash me — Cleanse me —

                Open my heart —

                So I can be an empty vessel

                Waiting Your favors

                Jesus: Oh children

                    Pray the Our Father


The Our Father

    Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.


                Ask for forgiveness for your sins —

                Be docile, humble, ready to learn My ways —
                    say to Me

                "Oh God I am sorry for my sins, for God
                        I have sinned against You" —

                Oh you people of this age — you have dug
                    your hole and crawled in —
                    you go to the dirt and
                    I call you to shine like silver —
                        glistening and more pure.

                But you are dipping yourselves in the
                    dust of rebellion —
                    seeking dominance like a covering of
                        your false power —
                    and reaping sour grapes — where
                        you could have brought
                        forth fruit for My Kingdom

                Answer Me not and your blindness becomes
                    ever greater — your life is lived
                    as in a hollow tunnel like
                    the block head —
                    he reaches not beyond himself to
                        seek the light —
                        he chose to be trapped in

                    At the moment of conception
                        you were marked with
                        original sin



                    Come to see the light —

                    I give you the sacraments
                Let yourself run to receive them
                Hear the cries of joy and gladness
                Turn away from your ignorance
                Ask for forgiveness of your sins

                R. Give to me your healing
                    lest I fall into the pit —

                Oh Jesus, hear me and help me, I love You so much
                    Wash away my sins that I may be pure
                        for you and
                    That I will be a light to the people as I walk
                        more and more following You, My God

                Jesus: Pray child, that you will not falter in living your
                    life for Me
                    Live your life to help build My Kingdom —
                    To draw souls to Me

                Sing Song: One little light in the darkness

                    Oh Shepherd of Israel harken
                        Arise and we shall be saved

                Jesus: A light to the people in darkness who
                    follow the world —
                    lift your hearts — that they are pure —

                    CLEAR - WATER

                    Pray to Mary to be cleansed —
                    be an empty vessel —
                    ready to be filled with My grace —
                    an instrument of love —
                    living obedient to Me

                You were put here to help build up My Kingdom
                    I chose you for this time in your life —
                    To leave your mark in the world —
                    Why are you so shallow in your thinking —
                    Don't think of a fleeting moment —
                    See through the eyes of the Father

                Plant the seeds I have given you to
                    bear must fruit as you live your
                    lives now on this earth

                Fruit for My Kingdom

                I have called you to help to bring about the
                    Reign of My Sacred Heart and Triumph
                    of Mary's Immaculate Heart —

                I gave you the building in Clearwater —
                    to teach the world about purity and love —
                    to help build My Kingdom

                To teach the world about obedience to the
                    Father's will — not doing your own thing —
                    obeying God


Mark 4: 26-34

He also said, ‘This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the land. Night and day, while he sleeps, when he is awake, the seed is sprouting and growing; how, he does not know. Of its own accord the land produces first the shoot, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. And when the crop is ready, at once he starts to reap because the harvest has come.’

He also said, ‘What can we say that the kingdom is like? What parable can we find for it? It is like a mustard seed which, at the time of its sowing, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth. Yet once it is sown it grows into the biggest shrub of them all and puts out big branches so that the birds of the air can shelter in its shade.’ Using many parables like these, he spoke the word to them, so far as they were capable of understanding it. He would not speak to them except in parables, but he explained everything to his disciples when they were by themselves.


                Come, O Lord, and set us free —

                From the slavery to the darkness —
                    oh Shepherd of Israel - save us
                    That we would feast at Your table and
                    That with hearts filled with such love —
                        we would be so mindful of the world —

                    Our lives are lived to help build Your
                        Kingdom —

                We want to please You God —

                To be so united as members of the mystical body,
                    praying for the priests, the Church and
                    the world —

                Oh Shepherd of Israel harken
                    hear our cries
                    Come, Messiah, come
                    Oh Savior — save us

                Teach us humility and justice
                Teach us the humble way
                Help us to be kind
                We love You God
                You are our best friend —

                When others act imperfectly
                    We know we are to base how we
                        act doing the Father's will —
                    We love You God hear us

                Knowing God's love — fills us with joy —
                    Let others see — that burning
                    desire in our heart to love God
                    so much and give our lives in
                    service of building His Kingdom —

                Oh Shepherd of Israel hear us —
                    Arise and we will be saved —

                To be ecstatic for God means we
                    reach — we go beyond our
                    selfish concerns

                We reach for God's love —

                We make sacrifices because we love

                We are filled with energy for the
                    God we love

                We say


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


                We have right reason —

                We love God

                We are enveloped in our desire to please

                As Jesus, so consumed with love —
                    mounted the cross —
                    We seek the love of God like a
                        dry and weary desert land —

                    We LOVE GOD           

                The opposite of love is hatred —
                    Love seeks good
                    Hatred is the movement more and
                        more to greater evil

                We give love to God by trying to please
                    Him doing good

                We do not want to sin because it
                    takes us away from God

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

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.
