                1st Reading from Today's Mass

Acts 13: 44-52

The next Sabbath almost the whole town assembled to hear the word of God. When they saw the crowds, the Jews, filled with jealousy, used blasphemies to contradict everything Paul said. Then Paul and Barnabas spoke out fearlessly. ‘We had to proclaim the word of God to you first, but since you have rejected it, since you do not think yourselves worthy of eternal life, here and now we turn to the gentiles. For this is what the Lord commanded us to do when he said: 

    I have made you a light to the nations,
    so that my salvation may reach 
        the remotest parts of the earth.’ 

    It made the gentiles very happy to hear this and they gave thanks to the Lord for his message; all who were destined for eternal life became believers. Thus the word of the Lord spread through the whole countryside. 

    But the Jews worked on some of the devout women of the upper classes and the leading men of the city; they stirred up a persecution against Paul and Barnabas and expelled them from their territory. So they shook the dust from their feet in protest against them and went off to Iconium; but the converts were filled with joy and the Holy Spirit.


                God can bring good from bad —

                Paul and Barnabas were preaching in
                    the Synagogue and it was full —

                This made the leaders jealous —
                    So Paul and Barnabas shook the dust
                        off their feet

                    Paul and Barnabas went to another town to
                        spread the Gospel                   


John 14: 7-14

If you know me,
    you will know my Father too.
From this moment you know him
    and have seen him.

    Philip said, 'Lord, show us the Father and then we shall be satisfied.' Jesus said to him, 'Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me?

'Anyone who has seen me
    has seen the Father,
so how can you say,
    "Show us the Father"?

Do you not believe
that I am in the Father
    and the Father is in me?
What I say to you
    I do not speak of my own accord:
it is the Father, living in me,
    who is doing his works.
You must believe me when I say
that I am in the Father
    and the Father is in me;
or at least believe it
    on the evidence of these works.
In all truth I tell you,
whoever believes in me
will perform the same works
    as I do myself,
and will perform even greater works,
because I am going to the Father.
Whatever you ask in my name
    I will do,
so that the Father may be glorified
    in the Son.
If you ask me anything in my name,
    I will do it.


                    Jesus is God
                    God the Father is God
                    so if you see Jesus, you see the Father —
                    Jesus says the Father and I are one
                    Jesus came, suffered died and rose —
                    We are to believe in Jesus to have eternal
                        life —

                    By our words and actions we show others
                        what we believe —
                        We sow the seed —

                    We cannot control another
                    We cannot make the seed bear fruit
                    God chose us to spread the Gospel —

                    We must continue to do what God wants
                        us to do —
                        We do what we can do to share
                            our life with others as God



Matthew 22: 36-40

'Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?' Jesus said to him, 'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.'


                God does not intend for us to have a cold
                    war —

                Many who want their way and hold onto
                    anger, unforgiveness — EXIST —
                    they are not actors, but can be frozen
                        in a cold heart —

                God intended us to be actors —
                    when we are baptized and in the state of grace
                    the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
                    live within us in a special way.
                    We have Christ living in us, using us
                        as instruments acting in the world —

                Obedience to God's commandments mean
                    action from the heart
                    carrying out the Gospel to others —
                    giving in love

                Say Our Father


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.


                A child is not bitter usually —
                    they do not have a life of unforgiveness —

                A child is learning —

                We are responsible for how we treat others —
                    so much so — the greatest commandment
                    demands we love others

                Those who have angry hearts, unforgiving hearts
                    can project their life long unforgiveness
                    on others

                There is Passive-Aggressive

                    A COLD WAR

                    Silence backed with hatred
                    Controlling the situation by
                        putting up a wall
                        of silence —

                    Controlling the purse, but
                        blocking an action

                    You don't know how or when this hatred
                        will come to provoke and they will act out
                        hatred —













                Fatima to bring peace

                To obey God's commands

                To be under God    love God
   love others as ourselves




1 Corinthians 15: 20-28

In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first-fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first-fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. But when it is said everything is subjected, this obviously cannot include the One who subjected everything to him. When everything has been subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the One who has subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.


                We are on earth to prepare us for heaven —
                    to learn how to love God
                    to learn how to love

                We are here to love

                To be obedient creatures of God








Promises of Our Lord to those devoted to His Sacred Heart: 

  1. I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.
  2. I will establish peace in their homes.
  3. I will comfort them in all their afflictions.
  4. I will be their refuge during life and above all in death.
  5. I will bestow a large blessing on all their undertakings.
  6. Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and the infinite ocean of mercy.
  7. Tepid souls shall grow fervent.
  8. Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection.
  9. I will bless every place where a picture of My Heart shall be set up and honored.
10. I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.
11. Those who promote this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be blotted out.
12. I promise you in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful love will grant to all those who communicate on the first Friday in nine consecutive months the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving their sacraments; My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.



                Heart of Jesus, formed by the Holy Spirit
                    in the womb of the Virgin Mother.



From Tell My People 

The Holy Spirit

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in My likeness. He performs this marvel within Mary's Immaculate Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My own Heart. In both Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master. All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!"

Reflection: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with our Mother, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us.

                Mary intercede for us for this mission —

                Sing: Ave - Ave - Ave - Maria



                Come Thou Almighty King

                We must see ourselves as creatures
                    under God

                Be docile
                Be loving
                Be humble

                Not prideful
                Not rebellious


Revelation 3: 14, 20-22

Write to the angel of the church in Laodicea and say, "Here is the message of the Amen, the trustworthy, the true witness, the Principle of Gods creation:

Look, I am standing at the door, knocking. If one of you hears me calling and opens the door, I will come in to share a meal at that persons side. Anyone who proves victorious I will allow to share my throne, just as I have myself overcome and have taken my seat with my Father on his throne. Let anyone who can hear, listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches.


                    "The thoughts of his heart last through
                        every generation, that he will rescue
                        them from death and feed them in
                        time of famine."


Ephesians 3: 8-12

I, who am less than the least of all God’s holy people, have been entrusted with this special grace, of proclaiming to the gentiles the unfathomable treasure of Christ and of throwing light on the inner workings of the mystery kept hidden through all the ages in God, the Creator of everything. The purpose of this was, that now, through the Church, the principalities and ruling forces should learn how many–sided God’s wisdom is, according to the plan which he had formed from all eternity in Christ Jesus our Lord. In him we are bold enough to approach God in complete confidence, through our faith in him;


John 10: 11-18

I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd lays down his life
    for his sheep.
The hired man,
    since he is not the shepherd
and the sheep do not belong to him,
abandons the sheep
as soon as he sees a wolf coming
    and runs away.
and then the wolf attacks
    and scatters the sheep;
he runs away
    because he is only a hired man
and has no concern for the sheep.
I am the good shepherd;
I know my own
and my own know me,
just as the Father knows me
and I know the Father;
and I lay down my life for my sheep.
And there are other sheep I have
that are not of this fold,
and I must lead these too.
They too will listen to my voice,
and there will be only one flock,
one shepherd.
The Father loves me,
because I lay down my life
in order to take it up again.
No one takes it from me;
I lay it down of my own free will,
and as I have power to lay it down,
so I have power to take it up again;
and this is the command
    I have received from my Father.


Isaiah 56: 1, 6-7

Thus says Yahweh: Make fair judgement your concern, act with justice, for soon my salvation will come and my saving justice be manifest.

As for foreigners who adhere to Yahweh to serve him, to love Yahweh's name and become his servants, all who observe the Sabbath, not profaning it, and cling to my covenant: these I shall lead to my holy mountain and make them joyful in my house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar, for my house will be called a house of prayer for all peoples.


                Jesus: I come that you will know My ways —
                    I am love —
                    those who take up the sword —
                    perish by the sword

                I call you to love


Matthew 22: 36-40

'Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?' Jesus said to him, 'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.'

                December 1991

                    Please my sweet Jesus, help me, my sweet



                About December 31, 1991

                    R. Please help me my God to know thy holy
                will, now Lord Jesus, I am your child, you know
                my hurts, you are my God and I place
                my trust in you, I will follow Your law,
                show me Your way, nothing is too great
                for You, I my Lord, place my Trust and
                my heart in You, You have created me into
               Your image likeness. You have lavished
                me in Your love, with dignity and honor
                you clothed me, given me rule over all, your
                sun and your moon give me light and guide me in
                this very night and I am indeed alive with thy holy
                presence which I would not have experienced
                except for this conflict. Thank you for Your love
                and your peace. I am Your child, I am blessed and gifted
                by You. My children are indeed great gifts.
                You are my light, you are my strength
                when I am bowed down, you are my hope and my rock, your
                sun and your moon give me light this very night, I will love
                because others need me. You are indeed my shield, my
                fortress, my army against the wicked one and You will
                not be shattered by any attempts to tear me down I will
                be fortified and strengthened by You and filled. God is as alive in
                me as me sitting here. I feel his presence, seeing God all in white
                in eternity his arms outstretched and saying, "My child come to
                me for I will give you rest", I see God and feel His presence in my
                heart — he is as alive. I see Jesus standing His arms outstretched — saying
                "Come to me, come to me, all who are weary of heart, place your
                yoke upon my shoulder and I will give you rest" weed out my unrest and
                fill me with the peace and joy that only you can give, why go there when
                I know my undying source comes from You my God — my Father,
                my Savior, my sanctifier and you live in me now — I am your
                child, I am blessed, you have carved me in the palm of your hand. You
                have called me blessed and holy and you dwell in my heart because I asked
                you and you come, I am your servant, I am Yours, God.
                Bless and keep your servant forever. I want to love others
                through you, I want to do Your will, I love you, God.



                January 1992

                R. I called and He answered me, He comforted
                my oh so sad heart and hugged me with
                the warmth of His love, He heard
                my sad songs and listened and answered
                me. He gave me His strength to
                wash my soul to fill my heart —
                And I come to You and You heard the pleas
                of my heart, You gave me a clean heart and
                renewed my spirit and I was made whole.
                You washed me of my pain and entered
                my heart with a thundering bolt and
                washed me from my sins. I am sorry
                for my offenses against You and I ask
                Your pardon for my sins. With love
                and dignity you washed my
                heart and gave me Your forgiveness
                that I may ask the Lord for His
                blessings on my soul and heal me of
                my offense.  



                January 8, 1992

                R. Dear Jesus,

                    My heart cries out to you, Oh Lord
                hear my prayer, for I was hungry and you
                gave me to eat, naked and you clothed
                me, for in my desperation, I cried
                out and the Lord heard my pleases, he
                made my enemies your footstools and
                gave me love and peace and joy and pardon.



                January 1992

                Dear Jesus,

                    Jesus: Come to Me, come to Me, all of you
                who are weary. Put your yoke upon
                My shoulder, for My Heart is merciful, My
                burden light. I have heard your prayer
                and am working with My light in their
                heart. My light to dispel the darkness and
                cast out fear and wash the pain away,
                to just let it go entirely.
                I am your God and you are My most
                precious child, I love you in your
                suffering and your pain and I am close
                to you. I am the God of your
                children, they are My children, you
                needn't worry, I am there for them. I am
                their Father and brother and I love them as much
                as I love you and I am watching out
                for them. They will be okay. You are
                not their sole responsibility. I am
                working in you, make yourself
                putty, make yourself able to be
                molded and I will do the work. I am
                your most merciful Jesus, in My
                merciful Heart, I see their pain,
                I will guide you — be loose, be
                attentive, listen and pray. Your life
                is unfolding and I am your God, I
                am with you and your children every
                step of the way. I created all my children,
                I love them all, you do not have to be god to anyone,
                live your life, I am watching out and carrying for you,
                I want to carry you, to
                nurture, love and work My light in you
                to dispel any darkness and your fear —
                My light is a beam in your heart —
                feel its warmth and love and in ever
                surrounding closeness, you are indeed
                not alone. I go with you with My
                light and My rod and staff, savor the moments
                of your life with the joy, as I intend you
                to do. I love you. I am with you,
                a voice cries out in the wilderness
                prepare ye the way of the Lord.

                You are on the lighted
                path — follow it — surrender
                to its beauty — it is there for

                            I love you.



                January 17, 1992

                Dear Jesus,

                    I want to be close to You and feel Your
                presence in my heart. I ask You to open
                my heart to the fire of your love and know
                Your promptings at this moment in my
                life. You are my God and I am your child and
                my way in life is useless without Your
                direction. My life would be so full of fear
                without having the relationship that You
                have given me with you. The devil tempts
                me to think I am unworthy. Most Sacred
                Heart of Jesus I put my trust in Thee.
                No matter what day and what
                minute it is you will always be there because
                you do not slumber or sleep.

                Jesus: I am your rock, I am your strength,
                I am your Savior. I am the only one who can minister
                to you when your heart is broken. I know
                your pain and your distrust and your hurt
                and your numbness and fear not to trust
                again. I have been offended so many times
                by so many. The worst is pains of the
                heart. Stay plugged into my source, know I am
                here with you every minute, every second,
                of your life, and I will be there ALWAYS —
                I died on the cross for you.
                Come to Me all who are weary and I will
                comfort you. Place your yoke upon My
                shoulder and do not be afraid for I will
                gently show you the way of the Lord.

                    I will be your rock, I will be your
                fortress, I will not leave you, I am there.
                Pray for your friends — many are
                suffering and will not open their hearts to
                Me or you or anybody. Many say "yes"
                to satan and "no" to Me. Pray hard for
                them, go to daily Mass and Communion and
                pray for them.

                I have all the power. All power
                    comes from Me —
                My heart is an undying source
                of fire and warmth —
                I have all the power.
                I am your power —
                I am your strength —
                I am your God —
                I am there with you now
                I will always be ready to help you
                    if you turn to Me.




                January 1992

                R. And I called and He answered me,
                He comforted my oh so
                sad heart and hugged me
                with the warmth of His love,
                He heard my sad songs
                and listened and answered
                me. He gave me His strength to
                wash my soul — He wiped
                each tear away with His
                love and bathed me in His blood and I
                felt His warmth and comfort deep
                in my cells as a burst of love
                washed through my sad body.

                    He filled me with His grace.
                He restored my shattered heart —
                His Spirit filled me. He breathed life into
                my tattered soul and washed
                me with the waters of comfort
                and He said to me "Yes My child
                beloved of My Father, You
                are oh so precious and oh so
                special to me and I am Divine.
                I see your little bouncy girl,
                your beauty and your innocence and
                I watch your tears and sorrow and
                I know the pain and trials of
                your heart, I share in your
                grief and I really love you,
                turn to me and feel My presence and
                comfort in your heart, I will
                take care of you, My graces and
                support are endless, I love
                you, you are not alone. I am
                here and I hold your hand, know
                it My child, you are indeed
                My precious child.

                    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.



                January 17, 1992

                Jesus: I am all powerful
                    I am your strength
                    I am your God
                    I am there every breathe you take!!
                    You must stay plugged into My Power.
                    Without Me life is void, empty and

                    They wander a valley of pain,
                        hiding —
                        they give their power to satan —
                        they think they are in charge and
                            yet they can be enslaved
                            to satan —
                            because of their pride

                    As "you" stay plugged into My power —

                    "They" give into satan

                    They weave a web of their own making —
                        a web they are caught in
                        fallacious reasoning from the evil
                        impurities keeps them stuck.

                    They want power because they feel a
                        loss of power — so they want
                        power over innocent others

                    How can you trust a liar —

                    What is a promise from a man
                        who rocks with untruths —
                        full of sin

                    Some seek power over others so
                        they like watching others

                    You are plugged into My source —

                    You are plugged into an endless
                        source —
                    You know My light —

                    You know the fire of My love,
                    You know My warmth,
                    You know My ever vigilant heart —

                    My Heart is burning for love of you —
                    I am your God —
                    You should have no gods before Me

                    I am here with you now in your
                        heart —

                    I love you so much —

                    Come Holy Spirit
                    Beg for the gift of Wisdom —
                    Beg the Spirit of God to fill you —

                    The devil wants your power —

                Some people want to be over authority,
                        but authority under God
                        is to be respected —

                    People who seek power over
                        authority — seek problems —
                        they are challenging structure —
                        God has put in place —

                DISORDER —

                Where I put order —

                Fallen man


                My power never runs out!

                It is an endless source of power





                January 27, 1992

                 Jesus: My child listen to My voice, heed My
                direction, days are coming when there will
                not be a stone left on a stone, but you
                have nothing to fear, trust in me and know
                I am your God and I will watch out after
                you. I love you, you are My child. Go to

                                        I love you

                R. This was the message I fell asleep at the end.

 Luke 21: 5-11

When some were talking about the Temple, remarking how it was adorned with fine stonework and votive offerings, he said, ‘All these things you are staring at now—the time will come when not a single stone will be left on another; everything will be destroyed.’ And they put to him this question, ‘Master,’ they said, ‘when will this happen, then, and what sign will there be that it is about to take place?’

But he said, ‘Take care not to be deceived, because many will come using my name and saying, "I am the one" and "The time is near at hand." Refuse to join them. And when you hear of wars and revolutions, do not be terrified, for this is something that must happen first, but the end will not come at once.’ Then he said to them, ‘Nation will fight against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes and plagues and famines in various places; there will be terrifying events and great signs from heaven.


                R. After this I lost my voice until I quit all my jobs
                    and wrote the Blue Books —
                    His voice came in me in rosaries and writings.

                R. Got this saying from Jesus

                I CAN NEVER LIVE THE
                    MOMENTS OF THIS DAY

                WHEN I GO TO BED
                    TODAY IS GONE FOREVER

                    EACH MOMENT BECAUSE
                    IT IS THE ONLY
                    MOMENT I HAVE AND
                    IT ONLY LASTS ONE MOMENT.

                Song: Live This Day



                    February 21, 1992

                    My dear Jesus,

                    Jesus: LET GO! RELAX — I am there
                    to run the show. Your most important
                    job in life is being the light to the
                    world — no tension, no anxiety —
                    look at your jaw, look at your
                    voice — pulled taunt like a
                    string pulled too tight — you
                    have pulled your throat tight
                    you are so tensed — you are GOOD
                    ENOUGH — LET GO — enjoy what
                    you do — no anxiety — do the same thing
                    without the pressure — walk and ride
                    the bike, it is good for you.

                        You are creating your own
                    anxiety and tension and taking it out
                    on your throat. What ever you
                    do is enough.

                        You have not taken the time
                    to write to Me because you have
                    not wanted to. You are being anxious
                    I can do more things in a minute
                    than you can in a week.

                        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.

                        I have worked miracles in your
                    life — LET GO — BE YOU —
                    love everyone around you and
                    take time for them. I will help you —
                    just take it slow, steady, and relaxed.
                    When you are tired rest — don't push
                    you are important. I will help you —
                    I love you. LET GO.

                        To sit by a quiet brook and listen
                    to God's birds chirp in the trees and
                    smell the freshness of the outdoor and
                    let go of school, of church, of work,
                    of the mess and just be with God and
                    feel the breeze on your face. You can
                    do that — I want you to — you are
                    choosing to not be serene —
                    You are choosing to ignore the
                    nurturing you need and I will give —
                    the warmth of the sun, the sound of
                    birds, the beauty of the trees — these
                    visions are alive in your mind — go
                    there, be there for a little while and
                    enjoy these things — they will nurture
                    you. See your children and spend the time
                    with them — these moments are gone
                    forever. LOVE them. I will
                    help you — I heal your chest —
                    your throat — if you want it
                    healed, let go, you are attacking
                    yourself — SO TIGHT are you —
                    LET GO and LOVE and RELAX —




                      April 2, 1992

                      R. Dear Jesus,

                            I am so happy to have you in my
                       heart. Thank you for this day and the sunshine,
                       thank you for helping me give my life to you and bringing
                       me to this point in my life. Thank you for
                       the trials that has brought me closer to
                       You and teaching me how to love more. Jesus,
                       I give you my will and my life,  I give you
                       what I am and I ask you to run my
                       life, please what ever happens
                       I surrender to you running my life.

                            Please Jesus help me to know the
                       way of life you call me to. Help me surrender to what
                       ever you want me to do. I will let you
                       run the show. I am going to do what you want,
                       I know today I was to go to All Saints
                       and spend this time with you.

                            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

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 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."
