Messenger:     Hide me God in the hidden wound of
                            Your side.

                        Wash me with Your precious Blood.

                        Fill my troubled heart with Your

                        May my soul ever grow in deeper
                            union with Thee.

                        As I work in the direction You have
                            asked me to work in where
                            we live as one body united in
                            Your truth,

                        May our hearts be united in love
                            that goes beyond the division which
                            we may experience as satan tries to
                            divide us.

Jesus speaks:  For child, My love for thee is an endless
                            furnace of love - for thee - My precious
                            child -
                            from all I have called you to share
                            such intimate knowledge of My
                            Heart not given to the greatest saints -
                            My hand is upon you, that in all
                            your efforts to spread My letters
                            of love - in the turmoil and pain -
                            you will know solace for
                            you know for why you act - it is to lead
                            souls to Me that they will be saved -
                            Souls - that they will share the heavenly
                            treasure of life eternal I wish to
                            give them.

                        Oh that they would know the solace you 
                            know from sharing the secrets of
                            My Heart.

                        My Heart beats with love for the men
                            that may study Me and yet not
                            love Me at all.

                        I am your bridegroom - what bridegroom
                            would desire a bride of words -
                            he desires a bride filled with
                            love and faithfulness -
                            a bride that speaks from her heart,
                            acts from her heart and gives
                            with a heart of love to her beloved.

                        As you grow more and surrender more,
                            you identify with Me in this mission
                            to reach the souls and tell them
                            of My undaunted love.

                        To many who have died and thought they 
                            knew God, they may have never had
                            a loving relationship with Me
                            as their Spouse.

                        Oh let Me tell you a story - a
                            poor bagger worked all his life
                            in love to provide a home for his

                            When he was elderly and the children
                        gone, the winds came and tore his little
                        humble home from the ground and
                        he was left homeless.

                            His years of toiling and giving love
                        to his family were never lost. He had
                        lost his home, he was old then, he did
                        not have insurance etc, he was a simple
                        man that lived simply and not according
                        to the men who could have helped him
                        be secured against such things. He
                        used his hands and his heart.

                            The insurance people were never
                        called. Some may come to criticize his
                        work, but when the chips were down -
                        I saw the gentle ways of the heart
                        of the man and the love he gave to
                        his children, now passed on to the 
                        grandchildren and their children.

                            Do you measure with a ruler
                        the depth of My Heart too? No ruler
                        could ever measure My Heart of
                        endless love.

                            The burning furnace of My Heart
                        you saw was the symbol I used
                        to show you My love - but you cannot
                        put My love in a thimble or in a big
                        yacht - My love is an endless vat of
                        fire that cannot be contained and measured.

                            I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
                        I am your God. I give you Myself in
                        the Eucharist -

                            I give you love -

                            LOVE, LOVE, LOVE,

                            I am LOVE -

                        I am your God - I want a relationship
                            with you.

                        I want oneness amongst My people.

                        I want people that love and worship
                            Me and treat Me with kindness.

                            A man married a woman and he ignored
                        her - he read her books at night
                        about things he was interested in -
                        He never said a personal word to her
                        about himself or told her he
                        loved her. I am your Spouse, I want
                        your love. I want a relationship -
                        I want heartfelt love. I am Jesus,
                        I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I
                        am treated so very cold and I am
                        a vat of endless love on fire for love
                        of you.


Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, life.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.


Messenger:        Dear God, it is for You I live.

                            One thing Mary made so clear to me
                        every day is how souls of this earth
                        were dropping into hell - like rain
                        she said.

                            This disturbs me when I love them
                        so much and then a soul going to hell
                        will never be with God for all eternity.
                        Heaven and hell are real.


Excerpt from the Spirituality of Fatima
by Father Carter, S.J.

    "During this same July apparition, Mary showed the three children a vision of Hell. She told them:

    "You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish, in the world, devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.

    "The war (World War I, then raging) is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light [January 2, 1938], know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. (12)

    "To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the five first Saturdays. If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed....

    "But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world." (13)

Mary speaks:        My child, on this day of my
                        Immaculate Heart I write to the

                        I am your Mother, your spiritual
                            mother. If you want to please your
                            God - you will show me love -


Excerpt from Tell My People

Spiritual Childhood

Mary: "My beloved priest-son, how I love to enfold you in my arms as my little child! Enfolded in my arms in my maternal embrace, I press you against my Immaculate Heart. I draw you within my Heart. There, through my maternal intercession, I clothe you with Jesus' graces. As you dwell in my Heart, I place you ever more deeply within Jesus' Heart and there the Holy Spirit fashions you increasingly in the image of my Son. As you grow in the likeness of Jesus, He takes you ever closer to the Father.

"Thus, as you grow in the sense of your helplessness without God, the stronger you become in Jesus. Childlike thus becomes strength. The smaller you become in living out spiritual childhood, the taller you stand beside Jesus. Weakness becomes strength, your sense of helplessness becomes spiritual maturity!

"Tell all my children about the wonders of spiritual childhood! Tell them to come to me and I will school them in its ways. How I love all my children! Oh, how I love to exercise my motherhood toward them all!"

Reflection: In the Gospel, Jesus speaks emphatically to us about spiritual childhood: "At this time the disciples came to Jesus and said, 'Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?' So he called a little child to him and set the child in front of them. Then he said, 'I tell you solemnly, unless you change and become like little children you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. And so, the one who makes himself as little as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven'" (Matthew 18:1-4).

Mary speaks:  I am a Mother that loves my children -
                            Your Father wants children that model
                            their lives after me.


Luke 1: 46-55

                The Magnificat

And Mary said:

My soul proclaims
    the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
    in God my Saviour;
because he has looked upon
    the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
    all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty
    has done great things for me.
Holy is his name,
and his faithful love extends age after age
    to those who fear him.
He has used the power of his arm,
he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes
    from their thrones
        and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things,
    sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help
    of Israel his servant,
        mindful of his faithful love
—according to the promise
    he made to our ancestors—
of his mercy to Abraham
    and to his descendants for ever.


June 19, 2004 continues

Mary speaks:  I am the handmaid of the Lord.

                        I sing the song your Father wants
                            to hear.

                        Many today do not sing to their Father
                            or show Him love.

                        You were created to know, love and
                            serve God.

                        God is love.

                        I am the Immaculate one.

                        You were called to be pure.

                        Purity is a desire of your heart.

                        Do you serve God for your glory
                            or for your own vain glory.

Jesus speaks:  My child your love is in Me.

                        You serve Me to spread My love to
                            the world.

                        You serve Me.
