Pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy (excerpt)
November 12, 1993
R. ...The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit dwell within your heart. Jesus is totally present in the Eucharist. God dwells within our hearts. The warmth of His presence is in our hearts. He is alive in our being. He is the one, true God. Our form is changed and we are made His holy people by the miracle of the Eucharist. He dwells within our hearts. He is God-made-man in us. Such honor, indeed, I can scarcely speak, for knowing Him is knowing God. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the one true presence of God and He has honored us by His presence.
Oh, Father, to know You and the Holy Spirit as much as I can! I want to know God. I want this union with God. Through Jesus You are made known to us. Oh, Father, through Jesus we feel Your love within us. A Father Who truly loves us and cares for us, Who loved us and created us out of love!
Please instruct me in all that You will share with me. I am so thirsty for You. Oh God, one, true! I love You-all three persons. Come and let me know more of Thee!
Jesus: I am the one, true God. I am Jesus, Son of God. I come to you totally present, body and soul, in the Eucharist. You are My chosen one that I choose to come and dwell in you. I am uniquely present to you here. You cannot comprehend My True Presence in your earthly form. A glimpse of My being I impart to you. You must keep begging for this intense union with Me.
This is knowing God. To know Me is to know God, for I am God. True, loving, one God. You shout for joy at such a union and you should indeed. For My True Presence is within you now in the Eucharist. You do not even comprehend what you partake in. This is so important-every day to partake in the Risen Christ, truly present within your soul!
See why you must remain holy to receive Me? I am God and I come to you. Keep your mouth holy, your hands holy, your heart holy. Be so reverent to My coming. I am God, the one true God and I come to you. You are so blessed by this union.
Spend time with Me. No prayers, just being, My being in you and your receiving Me in this union. Surrender totally to My presence and die to yourself that I may live in you. The more you die, the more I live. Let Me live through you so I can touch your brothers. The more selfless you become, the more I am able to touch your brothers through you. Beg to be emptied of yourself. Let go of this world. Be only of Me. You will see the miracle-My dwelling in your soul and acting out of you.
I am God. God has visited His people. He chooses to operate from your sick heart. Strive to become more of Me and less and less of you. Beg God for this union, joining God to your soul. Die to yourself. Let Me live and dwell in you. I want this union with you. It is an act of your will to make Me first and last in your life! I am all. There is nothing between. I am first, I am last, and there is no middle. It is only Me dwelling in you and Me operating out of you. I want to love your brothers through you. I love every one of God's children this intently but, if they do not come, how can I reach your brothers except through you? Be open as an open door. When I walk through, you greet Me with open arms. I never leave. It is a one-way door. I am in your heart to stay. Make your heart a temple for Me to live there. Keep everything ready for God. This demands holiness in all things. It is not hard. It is I Who dwell and act in you. You will cherish this union with all your heart.
R. Oh Jesus, that I may know and love You more and more. Let me walk Your passion with You. Let me fight the fight for Your truth. Possess my soul and use me to do Thy will.
Praise You Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Today we meditate on the Mysteries of Light.
Mysteries of Light
The Baptism of Jesus
(1) Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist in
The sky opened.
The voice was heard
"This is My beloved Son in whom I am
well please" —
The dove was seen above Jesus.
(2) Water is used for cleaning — water is
used for drinking —
We are mostly water —
We need water to live —
If we get dehydrated we can die —
Sometimes people get very sick and
throw up and lose water because
of the sickness and they can become
I remember a disease children have where
they get a big fever — their mouth hurts so
much they can't even hardly open it —
How do you get fluid into an infant with
a disease like this
They can get dehydrated —
Many people are sick spiritually — they can sin
mortally and turn away from confession
and be baptized children of the Church —
They can become very willful and are blinded
by what they are doing to not seek
the grace of the sacraments —
We must pray for these souls who have
turned away and because of their
will and blindness — stay in mortal
(3) Jesus gave us the sacrament of confession —
in confession we can ask to be forgiven
for all the sins of our past life
(4) In confession we receive grace that helps
us to not sin, if we cooperate with
(5) The sacraments are such a gift —
(6) In baptism we receive a sharing in His
life — Our knowing and loving
capacity is elevated
Jesus was baptized by John in the Jordan,
but this reminds us of the great
gift baptism is.
(7) Water is used in baptism —
From the pierced Heart of Jesus
Blood and water came forth —
water for baptism
blood for the Eucharist
(8) God gives us this sharing in His life
in baptism — then He feeds this
life with Himself in the Eucharist —
Jesus loves us so much —
He gives us Himself —
He takes care of us — especially when we
are docile and thankful and go to Him
(9) Dear Father thank You for loving us
so much to send Jesus Your Son
into this world — our Savior —
We love You Father — we are Your
little child — Please give us a
special grace during this retreat to
know and love You more as You deserve.
(10) Jesus says:
"I am the way, the truth and the life."
From St. Ignatius
Looking at the crucifix
1) "What have I done for Christ?"
2) "What am I doing for Christ?"
3) "What ought I to do for Christ?"
Marriage at Cana
(1) At the Marriage at Cana Jesus performed
what is considered His first public
Jesus changed water into wine.
(2) Mary told Jesus they had no wine and
Jesus changed water into wine —
Mary has powerful intercession with
(3) Mary and Jesus love each other so much —
Jesus help me to love Mary from
Your Heart —
Mary help me to love Jesus from your
pure and holy, Immaculate Heart —
(4) In this mystery we see the water in the
vessels and we know Jesus turned
this water into wine of the highest
Jesus can help us change to be more and
more holy if we ask Him —
if we let Him —
if we are docile and truthful and
living with a loving, supple
Song: Give me Your Heart oh Jesus
give me a heart like Yours
(5) In the Mass wine is changed into
the Body and Blood of Jesus —
At the offertory of the Mass — a
drop of water is put in the wine —
to show how our humanity mixes
with His divinity —
We can be changed when we go to Mass
I die to myself to be more like Jesus —
I stand under the cross with Mary —
I unite so deeply to Jesus, the sacrifice
of Jesus and give myself to the
Father in the Holy Spirit.
(6) From the Mass Book by Rita Ring
January 2, 1997
"In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen."
"The grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ, and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all."
God pours out His grace in this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It is the greatest gift when God gives Himself to us.
We share with God His life, given to us abundantly in the Mass.
He gives Himself to us, and we give ourselves to Him. The great love affair between God and man: His Holy Mass.
The priest is another Christ to us. It is Christ present, through the priest, celebrating the Mass. We must see Christ in the priest, see Him celebrate the Mass, see His beautiful brown hair, His gentle face, see Him, Our Savior. This Jesus Christ that came was born an infant and gave Himself to His death on the cross that we would share His life. See Him now in the Mass, giving Himself in the greatest gift of all. He gives us His divine love and His divine life.
Oh, we thank You for Your life. We know He died and rose and gave us a sharing in His holy life. His life is now abundantly poured, as a fountain to us, especially in the Mass.
Then we hear His Word. Let the Word of God penetrate our being. Let us feel this Living Word of God. As a two-edged sword, it comes forth with such conviction and love and it penetrates the souls of the faithful with such love. It is food indeed, food for our soul.
He is the Good Shepherd. He speaks to us. He gives us all we want. "There is nothing I shall want." (The Lord is my shepherd; I have everything I need. Ps. 23:1).
He gives us green pastures, and His water pours out and refreshes us. He outpours His grace as a fountain to feed us with His life.
He is a just God, good and kind, all loving, for He is love. We want for nothing for He outpours His love and His life to us in the Mass. We feast on His Body and Blood and are fed with His Word. We become one in Him and He shares Himself with us.
It is through the Mass celebrated by the hands of a holy pries that we will experience the Mass the way Christ intends. These writings are insights which hopefully will help lead you to the spring of life-giving water, the fountain of love and life He outpours in the Mass.
There will be a new earth when men will see with the light of seven suns. They will know God. A people walking in darkness will see a great light. They will no longer be blind, they will be enlightened, they will love God with the greatest love in the Mass. They will feast on His Body and Blood and will be united as one body in His holy Church through His life given to us in the Eucharist.
We will drink copiously from the fountain of grace which He pours out in the Mass. We will be filled with His love, absorbed with the love of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and feasting on His divine life.
We see with the vision of God. We partake in such a union with God. We see with the light the Spirit gives to us. The priest celebrates the Mass and we know God with such an intense knowing in this union. We are saturated with His life flowing from the hands of His consecrated priest.
And I look at Him, the priest, and I see Jesus there. I see Him giving Himself to me. I see the new and Holy City. I see with such clarity the great gift that God gives to us in the Mass!
We learn how to love in the Mass, for we unite to God. He gives us such an intimate sharing in His divine love that we carry His love out to the world. In this union we know His loving to an intense degree and we carry this love out to others. We share in an intense way in His divine act of loving. He, Who is Love, gives Himself to us and we are absorbed in His love and we know intensely how God loves. We are filled with love for God and for each other, for, in the oneness He is loving through us. He gives us lights into His loving capacity and we know His loving power in an intensity we did not know before.
We then pray. We offer up our intentions for this Mass. It is now we who intercede to Him to outpour His grace on us and help us with these intentions.
We pray for this reign of peace when the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph and men will fervently love and adore God with burning love. We pray for all souls and the Church and we beg for His help, His love, His grace.
We offer ourselves as a sacrifice. We offer the bread that will become the Bread of Life.
The priest mixes the water and the wine and we realize how His Divinity mixes with our humanity.
We offer the wine that will become our spiritual drink—His Blood.
I give myself to Him and I beg to be cleansed of my sins with the washing of the hands.
"May the Lord accept the sacrifice of your hands for the praise and glory of His name, for our good and the good of all His Church."
We ask Him to accept the gifts we want to give Him, we give Him thanks, we lift up our hearts in thanks and praise and we sing out:
"Holy, Holy God, of power and might..." we sing Him praise and thank Him, "Oh, God we love thee so much."
My heart is so filled with such awe. I cry because I love Him so much.
Every word in the Mass, I love. The priest consecrates the Host and changes it into the Body and Blood of Christ. Hear Christ say to us: "This is My Body", "This is My Blood".
Oh, it makes me cry for I am so struck with awe at what happens at the Consecration. I unite in the oneness with the priest, with Christ and with all present, with heaven and earth. I am one in that moment, united in the sacrifice of Christ giving Himself to the Father.
This is the moment when I unite in such oneness with Christ in the purity of Mary's heart. I give myself as a sacrifice. I offer myself to the Father.
The Father looks down and He sees us united to His Son's Sacrifice. It is in this oneness that His grace is outpoured on us, that we die to that which is not like Him and that the Holy Spirit works in the heart of Mary and fills us with His life.
I am in ecstasy as I realize more and more the great gift of love that God gives us in His holy Mass. I am taken to such heights, being wrapped in the presence of God. It is rapture, this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
It is a great gift, experiencing this intense presence of the Almighty God: Through Him, With Him, and In Him.
We pray to the Father the prayer as Jesus taught us and beg, "Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven."
We pray: "For the Kingdom, the power and the glory are Yours, now and forever."
We beg for peace in our hearts. We share this peace with one another. Then we beg of the Lamb of God. I want to get down to the ground and beg for His grace, mercy, and forgiveness for our sins.
Please, God, I see us as a sinful people. I want the grace and mercy to flow abundantly.
He raises the Host and says: "This is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, happy are those who are called to His supper."
We respond: "Lord, I am not worthy to receive You, but only say the word and I shall be healed."
I receive the Almighty God in Communion. All I want is Him. Oh, God, I want You, I adore You, I worship You, I love You.
Oh, for this moment when God gives Himself to me. Oh, God, words do not express this time—this intense presence of You within my being. Oh, sweet Savior, I love You!
You share Yourself so intimately with me. You imprint on my soul a knowing of Your Divine Being that is so intimate in this Communion when You give Yourself to me.
Oh, let our hearts be open to His grace that we may know this great gift more, that we will partake more fully in this greatest act of love with Divinity.
He shares Himself with us, the Almighty God, in such oneness. This is the greatest way to bind us with each other, to unite with each other in the Mass and Communion.
And so I sing the love of God, the love of His Mass. I beg you to pray for the grace that He can teach you in these writings about His most intimate love affair with man, the gift of Himself—the gift He gives us in the Mass.
The Holy Sacrifice, the sacrifice of Calvary, sacramentally-made-present in the Mass when He gives Himself to us with the greatest love!
And what does He ask in return? He asks that we love one another, that we give Him the glory, the thanksgiving, the adoration that is His due as the Almighty God.
He sends us forth with His blessing to share His most intimate love with all. We go forth as other Christs in the world. For He is alive this day and He lives in us and He gives His love to others through us. We act as channels of His life to one another.
The Mass is the richest source of His life. His life flows through the body, the Church, especially through the sacraments and the Mass.
Oh Jesus, from the fountain of life that pours forth from your pierced Heart, give us holy priests whose hearts are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary to celebrate the Mass—that there is such oneness between the priest and Christ that His grace will flow copiously.
We thirst for the fountain of life pouring forth from the pierced Heart of Christ. It is His life we seek and find in the Church. It is His love we want and we experience the greatest love affair with God in the Mass.
These books on the Mass are accounts of my intimate love affair with our Almighty God. Many experiences were enlightenments I received in the Mass.
I strongly advise all to pray, to say the Holy Spirit Prayer, the consecration prayers, and the Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, before Mass.
This book is the journey into the red room, the inner chamber of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the gateway, the pure and Immaculate Heart of His Mother.
It is in the Mass we give ourselves in such love to our Holy God. He gives Himself to us and we give ourselves to Him.

IN BAPTISM, HE LIVES IN US
I have been suffering since September 13th, yesterday was the worst ever. Last night, coming home from dinner, I knew why He sweat blood. I know His pain. Today, Saturday afternoon, I have pain in my left side of my heart all the time.
I went to Communion at St. Boniface Catholic Church. I begged Him to give me a sign that He wanted me to continue what I am doing. He gave me a sign.
St. Paul: "You cannot have forgotten that all of us, when we were baptized into Christ Jesus, were baptized into his death. So by our baptism into his death we were buried with him, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the Father's glorious power, we too should begin living a new life." (Rm. 6:3-4)
We are incorporated into Him in Baptism. He lives in us. We carry out His life, death, and Resurrection in our lives, as He is alive in us this day.
We die with Him. We rise in Him.
Death - Resurrection
Dying in Him, living in Him, as He lives in us.

HE GAVE HIMSELF; LET US GIVE OURSELVES
Depth, deeper and deeper in Him. Through Him, with Him, and in Him. In the red room, in the pierced Heart, I envision the pulsating embers. I feel the pain in my foot, I feel the ache deep in my chest. It is a pain I cannot touch, I cannot express it, I feel this in this deep oneness with Him.
I see His wounds; it is the depth of the wounds. He was pierced all the way through. He shows us that despite all of His suffering and death, they pierced His precious Heart. And from His pierced Heart the Church was born.
The pain in the Church is deep. We must spread the message of His burning love. His love is penetrating, His love is so deep. Do we see His pierced Heart? Do we see the wounds that go all the way through. His love is infinite.
Jesus' love is so deep. I see the red room, the sanctuary of His Heart. I feel pain within, not a surface love.
He shows us the Hearts, pierced. We see the body wounded, but the hands and feet were pierced all the way through.
We eat His Body. How more intimate is this - we drink His Blood. We are blind. We do not see. We do not feel.
We go through motions, when He wants oneness. Open our eyes. As we look at the sun, we see such power. Let us unite deeply in our hearts and in this oneness realize the power of the Almighty God living within us. Let us realize the blinding light of His presence within us.
Let us give ourselves. He gave Himself. Let us hold nothing back. Let our every breath and heartbeat be taken only to unite deeper and deeper to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, living within us. The power is in this union. He will light this world through us, for we are among the children of the light.
Jesus and Mary want to be with us! They want to be so close to us!
Our union with each other is in uniting in such oneness to Him.
Agony in the Garden:
Jesus spoke clearly to them. They did not understand the things He said. Many He spoke to were stiff-necked, they were closed in their hearts. They didn't want the message. He knelt in the garden. In His knowing, He knew all things. He was ignored. They put Him to death! He knew all the sins of all men for all time. He saw all of His sufferings. He suffered such agony that we can not even comprehend in our minds. Feel the pain as they pound the nails into His hands and feet. Several men working on Him at once, we cannot even stand one person who treats us nasty!
He had many people persecuting Him.
When we pray, feel His pain, feel His joy. Meditate on the mysteries of the rosary.
Do I experience Jesus within me, alive in me - alive in me? Do I control my life or do I surrender to the will of God? I see Him hanging on the cross. He gave His all willingly. At the Consecration of the Mass I give myself as a sacrifice united to Jesus, to the Father. This is freedom, to give myself to my Father, to turn my life over to Him, to obey Him, to surrender myself to Him. This is what God wants. This gives us real freedom, total dependency on God as I unite to Jesus in all my actions. He lives in me. I must identify with Him in every action. I offer myself totally to the Father. All my actions united to Jesus become my sacrifice given to the Father. When I offer my actions united to Jesus, my offering is a most pleasing offering given to the Father. What a gift to be able to unite with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in all of our offerings all through the day. Dear Father, I offer you all my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in the Holy Spirit, with all the angels and saints and the souls in purgatory.
Let Him live in you. Experience Him alive in you. Unite in Him, with Him, and through Him. Experience the words of the Mass - it is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass!
Do I come and ask to be made holy to unite more deeply in Him? Do I offer myself as a sacrifice with Him to the Father?
Do I see the whole heavenly court praising God? Unite and praise God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit with the priest as we partake in Christ's priesthood and victimhood in this Holy Sacrifice. Do I unite to Him? Do I allow Him to live in me? My every action should be an action of Christ living within me. If I am praying at church, if I am at work, if I am talking to my family, if I am talking to friends, I am united to Jesus, and He lives in me. It is His light that shines from my eyes. Others see Jesus alive in me. I said to my 16 year old daughter, "Jesus' love is so gentle and kind." She was so beautiful laying in bed next to her Jesus pillow. I gave her a kiss. In all of our actions with others, Jesus unites with us and gives His love to others through us. We must pray for the grace to be more deeply united to Him.
The love Jesus wants to share with us is so much more than words, than kisses, than hugs. Jesus wants to unite in oneness with us. His love is penetrating. It is being in Him. I live in Him. He lives in me. Far deeper than a kiss or any means of human expression, there is such a depth to the oneness I experience with Him.
The sun always shines after the night. The sun is such a joy - it is so bright and beautiful. If I look to the sky, I see beauty beyond all beauty. I see the sunset with such glory over the vast ocean. I see the sky adorned with the deepest hues. I see the woodland forest covered in such splendor with the new fallen snow. Only the might of the Almighty God could create such beauty. In contrast, I look at the man-made objects of this world. It is so simple. We are so blind. The Almighty God is alive in this world today. Let us unite with Him and realize the great gifts that He gives to us and thank Him and let Him unite in deepest union with us.

I am so disheartened with myself, for I see my faults are many, and I fall so many times into sin.
I long to love You and adore You, and I am so weak in my ways.
So easily I fall into little traps set by Satan, so easily I fall. So easily I wander and I long and thirst to be ever closer!
I see Your greatness. I love You more and more. I am in awe of Your presence. The more I know and love You, the more I am sorry for my wrong doings, my little offenses against You, my Beloved.
So unworthy I am of Your love and goodness.
This is a letter from me to You, my sweet Jesus, my Beloved, my precious One.
I had the greatest gift, the Holy Eucharist, and I took it for granted. I did not thank You enough. I did not adore You enough. I did not worship You enough.
I love You with the deepest love, my God, my All.
You are here now before me, exposed, and my heart is filled with awe and reverence, for You are truly God, and I am Your servant, Your beloved servant.
I love You. I love You. I love You.
Mary, my Mother, lead me into greater intimacy with my beloved Jesus. I ask your intercession for this, my fervent prayer. My plea is, oh beloved Jesus, to give to me whatever I need to be closer to Thee.
(10) From the The Spirituality of Fatima by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.
July 13, 1917
"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)

SHEPHERDS OF CHRIST AND FATIMA
In the Shepherds of Christ, we are a family, joined in one heart in Mary and Jesus' Heart because of our consecration to Their Hearts. We are acting as His Heart beating in this world. We are the modern day apostles joined in one heart.
As we give our hearts to Mary, the Holy Spirit gives us lights to know God and we go forth into the world as lights because we love God so much. We cannot know God and not love Him. So our hearts are filled with the burning love of God.
We Are One in Jesus' Heart
The core leaders contact the coordinators. The coordinators contact the individual apostles. All apostles are working for Jesus. They try to spend one hour a day either in front of the tabernacle or at home alone with Jesus. In this hour, Jesus directs them on their life. They share intimate love with Jesus. He teaches them about Himself and the Father's will for them. It is so important to spend an hour of intimacy everyday with Jesus.
We live by Mary's Peace Plan given at Fatima. It is as follows:
Until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.
Mary has requested all to pray the daily rosary.
We must observe the Five First Saturday devotion:
- Communion, confession (within 8 days before or after the Saturday), recital of the rosary, meditating for 15 minutes on the mysteries of the rosary. All this is to be done in a spirit of reparation.
We must make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
His plan centers around this.
We have heads functioning in the individual ministries. Everything we do leads to consecration of hearts. As the apostles press on the three institutions, the Church, family, and school to help spread the consecration, the strayed ones will be led home to His Heart.
Mary said at Fatima, until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.
The Present Condition of the World
Peace will come when hearts are hearts of love. The scales must shift. It will happen through the consecration. Mary's peace plan: until a sufficient amount of people consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace.
The Scale Must Shift
The Father looks to the earth; He sees much darkness.
The Father looks to the earth. There are so many hearts that are not on fire for love of God. The hearts of burning love light up the earth. It is as lights on a Christmas tree. It is sparsely lighted. Therefore, the tree looks dark.
As the Shepherds of Christ Movement spreads (as well as other movements focused on spreading consecration to Their Hearts) the tree is covered with more hearts filled with burning love for Jesus and the earth becomes more lighted.
The tree is covered with hearts consecrated to the
Hearts of Jesus and Mary. The tree is so bright.
As the Shepherds of Christ apostles spread the consecration to the Church, the family, and the school, the tree is covered with lights and the earth is covered with the fire of His love.
The Father looks to the earth now. He is displeased with the hearts of men. The Father wants us to love God and love each other. He wants us to live according to His will in love.
Mary appears at Fatima. She tells us that we are offending God. She tells us what we must do. Mary's peace plan:
Until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.
Mary has requested all to pray the daily rosary.
We must observe the Five First Saturday devotion:
- Communion, confession (within 8 days before or after the Saturday), recital of the rosary, meditating for 15 minutes on the mysteries of the rosary. All this is to be done in a spirit of reparation.
We must make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
Mary said there will be an era of peace, in which the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph.
God gave us Mary as our Mother. We are disobeying our Mother's requests given at Fatima. Do you think the Father is pleased with willful children disobeying their mother?
Man disobeys, the devil blocks the Fatima message. World War II happens just as Mary said.
Jesus writes His message of love on our hearts. His life lives in our hearts. The Scriptures and the Mass live in our hearts.
In the Shepherds of Christ Movement, our focus is on the priest.

GIVE HIM ALL THE GLORY AND PRAISE
Written at 1:30 a.m., after Mass:
Such an experience, such unworthiness to receive Him. I want so much to be made pure. I am so full of self and pride. I want to die at the Consecration to all that is not holy.
I see that anything that is not of Him interferes with my work to serve Him. All I want is to spread His love and His Word and His goodness throughout the world. I realize how we are to love Him and give Him such honor and praise.
I want so much to love Him with the deepest love. I want to give Him love, because He deserves the love, and I love Him so much. I want to give Him great love.
I beg Him, beg Him to give me whatever I need to give Him greater love just so He receives great love.
I want to love through Mary. She is so pure and sinless. I am a sinner and so undeserving of such great love. I want to be more pleasing to Him. I beg Him to sanctify me. I cried at the Consecration in awe of the miracle taking place.

91. THE CALL OF AN EARTHLY KING
This will help us to contemplate the life of the
Prayer. The preparatory prayer will be as usual.
First Prelude. This is a mental representation of the
place. Here it will be to see in imagination the
synagogues, villages, and towns where Christ our
Second Prelude. I will ask for the grace I desire.
Here it will be to ask of our Lord the grace not to be
deaf to His call, but prompt and diligent to accomplish
His most holy will.
92. First Point. This will be to place before my mind
a human king, chosen by God our Lord Himself, to
whom all Christian princes and people pay homage
93. Second Point. This will be to consider the address
this king makes to all his subjects, with the words: "It
is my will to conquer all the lands of the infidel. There-
fore, whoever wishes to join with me in this enterprise
must be content with the same food, drink, clothing,
etc. as mine. So, too, he must work with me by day,
and watch with me by night, etc., that as he has had a
share in the toil with me, afterwards, he may share in
the victory with me."
94. Third Point. Consider what the answer of good
subjects ought to be to a king so generous and noble-
minded, and consequently, if anyone would refuse the
invitation of such a king, how justly he would deserve
to be condemned by the whole world, and looked upon
as a ignoble knight.
95. The second part of this exercise will consist in applying
the example of the earthly king mentioned above
to Christ our Lord according to the following points:
First Point. If such a summons of an earthly king to
his subjects deserves our attention, how much more
worthy of consideration is Christ our Lord, the Eternal
King, before whom is assembled the whole world. To
all His summons goes forth, and to each one in
particular He addresses the words: "It is my will to
conquer the whole world and all my enemies, and thus to
enter into the glory of my Father. Therefore, whoever
wishes to join me in this enterprise must be willing to
labor with me, that by following me in suffering, he
may follow me in glory."
96. Second Point. Consider that all persons who have
judgment and reason will offer themselves entirely for
97. Third Point. Those who wish to give greater
proof of their love, and to distinguish themselves in
whatever concerns the service of the eternal King and
the Lord of all, will not only offer themselves entirely
for the work, but will act against their sensuality and
carnal and worldly love, and make offerings of greater
value and of more importance in words such as these:

A MEDITATION ON TWO STANDARDS
The one of Christ, our supreme leader and lord,
the other of Lucifer, the deadly enemy of our
PRAYER. The usual preparatory prayer.
window at a former Jesuit Seminary
137. FIRST PRELUDE. This is the history. Here it will be that Christ calls and wants all beneath His standard, and Lucifer, on the other hand, wants all under his.
138. SECOND PRELUDE. This is a mental representation of the place. It will be here to see a great plain, comprising the whole region about Jerusalem, where the sovereign Commander-in-Chief of all the good is Christ our Lord; and another plain about the region of Babylon, where the chief of the enemy is Lucifer.
139. THIRD PRELUDE. This is to ask for what I desire. Here it will be to ask for a knowledge of the deceits of the rebel chief and help to guard myself against them; and also to ask for a knowledge of the true life exemplified in the sovereign and true Commander, and the grace to imitate Him.
THE STANDARD OF SATAN
140. FIRST POINT. Imagine you see the chief of all the enemy in the vast plain about Babylon, seated on a great throne of fire and smoke, his appearance inspiring horror and terror.
141. SECOND POINT. Consider how he summons innumerable demons, and scatters them, some to one city and some to another, throughout the whole world, so that no province, no place, no state of life, no individual is overlooked.
142. THIRD POINT. Consider the address he makes to them, how he goads them on to lay snares for men and bind them with chains. First they are to tempt them to covet riches (as Satan himself is accustomed to do in most cases) that they may the more easily attain the empty honors of this world, and then come to overweening pride.
The first step, then, will be riches, the second honor, the third pride. From these three steps the evil one leads to all other vices.
THE STANDARD OF CHRIST
143. In a similar way, we are to picture to ourselves the sovereign and true Commander, Christ our Lord.
144. FIRST POINT. Consider Christ our Lord, standing in a lowly place in a great plain about the region of Jerusalem, His appearance beautiful and attractive.
145. SECOND POINT. Consider how the Lord of all the world chooses so many persons, apostles, disciples, etc., and sends them throughout the whole world to spread His sacred doctrine among all men, no matter what their state or condition.

Prayer from St. Ignatius
Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
To give and not to count the cost;
To fight and not to heed the wounds;
To toil and not to seek for rest;
To labor and not to ask for any reward,
Save that of knowing
that I am doing your will.
Prayer of St Ignatius
Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Permit me not to be separated from Thee
From the wicked foe defend me
at the hour of my death call me
and bid me come to Thee
That with Thy saints I may praise Thee
For ever and ever. Amen.

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.

A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.
I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.
Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.
Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.
Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.
Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

IN THE DEEPEST RECESSES OF HIS HEART
The place Jesus took me was into the deepest recesses of His Heart. I was enveloped in His burning love. It was a red room with heat and an intense glow. I was swept away in this embrace, and I only existed in Him. The power of the Almighty God enveloped me, and I only existed in Him. There was no fear, for I was existent in this Almighty Being. My heart was wrapped in the eternal embrace of this Supreme Being. The security, the power I know was His deep presence in which I existed.
I knew the room was red and warm. I knew His immenseness, but I felt my own completeness in Him. I did not feel little, as a speck, but elevated and empowered for I existed then in Him in a most special way.
I was overtaken by the love of God. The fire of the Holy Spirit filled me. I was absorbed by the love of the Father, and I existed IN Him and in the deepest recesses of the Heart of Jesus. Our heaven on earth is these inner chambers of His magnificent Heart - the Heart of the Almighty God, with all the power, with omnipotence, with the fire of the love of God. He took me to the deepest chamber of this fiery Heart, and in that moment, I touched eternity, for I knew what it was to be enveloped in the deep furnace of His love. I now want to exist in this chamber of His Heart, swept away in His burning love, absorbed in my every cell with His love.
We do not understand the fire of His love. We do not understand what it is to be absorbed by love itself. He took me to the inner, deepest chamber of His Heart, and I felt the heat and knew the presence of love itself, and there was no fear, only a feeling of completeness, omnipotence, all-embracing, penetrating love - a power indescribable in words, a saturation of my being in the presence of God, and I was as I was created to be - living in Him!
This is how I will forever live my life, saturated with His divine life and love deep within this inner chamber of His burning Heart, living in Him as He possesses my being, and I operate with His power in me.
Little creatures though we are, we are His, His power, His life, flowing through us. In Him, we are as the Father intended: one in Him, each one of us, dwelling in this fiery furnace of His love. With our fears quieted and our hearts empowered by His life, we live forever in Him - in the Heart of Jesus.
Let no man separate what God has joined together. I am wed in the deepest love with my beloved Spouse, wed to the Heart of Jesus. As I am, I am one in Him. I live and I breathe in Him. He, Who is love, He Who is our all, He Who is mighty and without limits, He Who is, He Who is God and as I live, He lives in me in this world.
I am wed to Him, and I shall not fear for He is God - one, complete, loving, God. Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee. As I live, I live in Your most adorable Heart, the furnace of God's love!

THE EARTH STOPPED AND TOUCHED HEAVEN
R. I long to unite in the deepest union with Him in the Eucharist. I long for the Mass. I long for Thee, oh God. My every moment, I join as I did to You December 15 under the cross, where I felt Your presence. You whisked me away, and I was totally absorbed in that moment of celestial union with You. For that time, I existed only in You, in the deepest union, and I was in this moment existing in You. The earth stopped, and I touched the heavens, all my bodily cares were existent in You. I existed in Your Divinity, my being was in You. There was no desire or wish or wanting, for in that moment, I had all I wanted in You. I was satisfied and wanted nothing but to remain in that embrace. You were the Being, and my being existed in You, but I was only as I was in You - merged in You, knowing and being in Your Divinity and being so full as to feel complete in myself.
You are so enormous, and You surrounded me in a burning embrace, the presence of red fire. I was not little, or "nothing", but existed in this enormous power and being so complete!
I touched eternity, and in that embrace, I knew all the waiting was worth the glory. You enveloped my being, and I was truly merged in the Divine Presence. I was merged in Your being. I existed IN You, with You, in the highest union with You, although I knew I was still distinct from You.
I was fused and absorbed in You, feeling complete and satisfied. To describe this union is far beyond any work of my pen and paper. I pray for the reader of this page to receive the grace to share this experience with Him, I will now live for this union-to be forever merged In Him, to be One in Him, to reach higher perfection as I exist in Him, for He takes the lowly and gives to them a sharing in Himself. He merges with us and we exist in Him. The word "in" - I could write pages about. I long for the deepest union with Him, where I am swept up in the heavenly embrace of the Divine God, and I am IN Him.
This is heaven on earth: to be merged as one with Divinity, although remaining distinct from God, to take our feeble hearts, our lowly status and to unite ourselves with the Divine, Almighty, powerful God and in this union to be meshed with Him, that His power dominates and our humanity reaches its heights of fulfillment in this union, in this oneness with Him.
The word I have looked for is "oneness." I understand some of the meaning of the words "One in Him." Oneness is the word to describe this union of our humanity with His Divinity. The depth to which we could meditate on oneness with God is incomprehensible. In that moment, the earth stood still, and He, my Divine Lover, the Bridegroom of my soul, took me to Himself, and I knew the embrace of the Divine God.
Nothing on the face of this earth can describe our union with Divinity. Oh, good God, that creatures are so ungrateful regarding Your divine love. I am so sorry. Let me help make reparation to Your adorable Heart. Please unite with me now that I may more deeply love Thee.
Oh, Divine Lover of my soul, let me help make reparation to Your adorable Heart for the neglect and indifference against You.
Song from Jesus: I come to you with greatest love. I am your loving Savior. I am your God. I died for you. I come to you this day.
R. He allowed me to experience such pain in my heart - wanting Him so badly, so many times-and then on Dec. 15, 1995 - He gave Himself to me in the deepest union.
Nothing satisfies the soul but Him. He wants the nuns and priests to love Him. He chose them to spread His love.
Souls are hungry. They will only be fed with His burning love. Priests need to talk about Jesus' love for us from the pulpit. Priests need hearts burning for love of Jesus. This will feed the hungry souls - lip service love doesn't do it.
He is alive today. He is a Person. He wants us to love Him.

R. Love is not selfish. It does not demand its own way. It lives for the good of the other.
Love is from God. Love has its source in God. If love in any way separates the two people from God, it is not love. If I love God and know His love, I can give His love to you.
Love comes from a place of strength. It has its origin in God. It is rooted in Him and is a natural expression of one's self because of the person's union with Him. Love is giving. Love is never selfish and demanding.
If I need you to love me, then I am asking you to feed the appetite in my soul. Only God can feed the soul. If you love me, I am very grateful to God for your love, but I do not need it. I am okay if you stop loving me. I may feel sorrow and pain, but I am okay because all love that feeds me comes from God and He never withdraws His love.
Jesus: "Oh," you say, "this is the ideal." "No," I say, "this is love." Love rooted in Me gives. To My death on the cross I gave My love for you. I never demanded you give Me anything. You have a free will. Love is not force. I gave you the commandments to live by. Love God, love one another. You can choose to disregard the commands and love no man. Love does not demand its way. I give to you My love freely. You can accept My love or reject it. You were created with the purpose to know, love and serve God. If you follow other roads, your heart withers and dies. You have a free will to love or not to love, but, if you do not, you are going against the very reason for your being. To live in harmony with yourself and your soul you must love God and your brothers. If you do not love God first, and your brothers, you live a life of discord.
I make all things happen for him who loves and serves the Lord. I am He Who has all the power. I am the Master. You are My beautiful children. You I loved and still love this very day. I give freely My love to you. I wait in the tabernacle for you like an ardent lover. I loved you to My death. I give Myself to you in Communion. Do you know that I, God, give Myself, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, to you.
Meditate on My Passion. I am waiting for your love. I love you so much. I long for your love. I want to be with you. You are keeping us apart. You are the reason we are not sharing this intense love. I am always available. Where are you? What could be more important than your time spent alone with God. Seek Me and this union and you will have all you need.
I am Jesus. I am your love. I come to you with such love. Come, My beautiful ones, come and give Me your love.
You stay away and I lament your absence. I loved you to My death. I am the source of love. Come to Me and be filled.

March 10, 1994
Jesus: This is surrender. I want your all. I do not want you attached to any person or any thing. I want you completely dependent on Me. Do I teach you such lessons on how attached you are to others and things? I have all the answers. If I do not tell you, you do not need to know. You want your will. My will I make known to you in front of the tabernacle. I have spoken here.
Surrender is doing the will of God and it is not your deciding and doing your will. I want your all. I want you to do those things the way I tell you. It is not the way you want to do them. Sweet surrender, only to find I want more. Look at My position on the cross. Did I ask you to die for Me? I ask you to do My Will. I ask you to surrender. I ask for time in front of the tabernacle. I ask for love. Watch this world go up in your face. Then where are your possessions, the things you held on to? You only have limited vision. I know all things.
I am so tired. You do not give but bits and pieces. You hold on to what you want and give Me some. I want your all. I want total surrender. I showed you how to surrender when I died on the cross. I am not asking for this. I am asking for you to do My will. You are so attached to pleasing people that you do not see the whole picture. I make My ways clear here. You do not listen. You do what you think is a good thing and you do not even come to Me. I want your all. I want surrender.
R. Love includes giving up what you don't want to give up. Love is saying, "Yes, Lord", even when you would rather do it your way. It is in your surrender and love of God that you teach mighty lessons to those around you. You teach by your being in love with Jesus. I love you, Jesus. I give of My bounty, not little bits and pieces I stingily let go of. Jesus, my Lord, my God, my All, how can I love You as I ought? Do I give My all, or do I say, "Oh, Lord, you can't mean that you want this," and hold on to what I want.
Do I hold on to people and don't even know it, or do I put You first, Lord, above all persons, places and things? I see how really attached I am to everything, things I do not even know I am attached to. It is easy to give lip service to surrender and tell God to possess our soul and make me selfless, but do I really mean it? This is what keeps us from increased union with Him! It is in total surrender, of living for love of Him and Him alone, that we are free. And what freedom! The bittersweetness to let go, to find freedom from all we hold on to! The things we hold on to most are what keeps us from our increased union with Him.
"Oh, not that, Lord! Oh, do I look at your crucifix and see You letting go?" You held not one thing back. Your arms open wide, nailed to the cross! Total surrender!
What does He ask of me today that I want to hold on to? Holding on to things stops my freedom. To be totally free, I must let go. I cannot hold on and let go at the same time. Freedom is obtained in letting go. See yourself with your arms tight, holding on to all you possess.
Jesus: I call you to surrender. Open your arms as I did when I died on the cross. Let all your sacred worldly possessions drop around you and you will experience the joy of being free, united only to Me, of letting go and knowing that I, God, tend to your every need. To My death on the cross I loved you and I love you this way this very day. Let go and give it all to Me. I will care for you far better than you could for yourself. I am God and I love you more than you can love yourself.
Jesus is dead, hanging on the cross, arms outstretched. His feet are not even on the ground. He is hanging by nails on a piece of wood. What do we hold on to? He wants us in midair in total surrender. Oh, little ones, how you squander your possessions. How you hold on to people. How you won't let go. See Me in total surrender.
I gave My very life for you. What do you hold on to, My little ones? Little bits and pieces you give to Me and you hold tight to your lives. They will be up in smoke and all that will remain will be the things of God. Not one pair of shoes do you take with you, only your love, given to God and others.

I Love You, Child - Know This
January 31, 1994 5:00 a.m.
Jesus: I am the Good Shepherd. I know Mine and they follow Me. I am truly there directing you. The littlest detail in your life is tended to by Me. You do not have to worry for one thing. I will take care of you. Let go and surrender to Him Whose love for you surpasses all your desires on this earth. It is in spiritual bankruptcy. You will feel a new closeness and intense love with Me.
I am Jesus, your God. I care for you like a doting mother. I never leave your side. I watch you, I wait for you, I am the most tender of hearts. Bring your cares to Me and I will tuck you into My Sacred Heart. You will be made whole in Me. My Blood I drip on you and you are cleansed by My Blood. You are engulfed in a sea of love. This is true love, come down from The Father and with the Holy Spirit. You know Mary was with you all day yesterday. She is always with Me and I am with You. She loves you so much!
Do not worry for any details. See the big picture. See your plan unfold at My hand. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. Child, I have all the power. Why stand you idle with such a load? Drop your cares at the foot of My cross and rise into the sky. I am there with you. You must listen to how much I love you. I love you. I love you. I loved you to My death. I love you. See Me bloodied and bruised, with My arms outstretched in surrender for love of you.
I love you, child. Know this: I am so full of love for you. Come to Me and get your love. Do not wander a barren desert. You will not find what you are looking for. No love on this earth is even a crumb compared to My love for you and I am waiting as an ardent lover for you at every minute. You are so lucky to have God love you this way.
Focus on Me and Me alone. When your mind begins to focus on a problem, come to Me and crawl inside My heart. You have Me right by your side. Do you know this, child? Turn everything over to Me and proceed full steam ahead. Your life is as it is. Accept it from Me. Any trials you have are to make you stronger. Your life is just right to strengthen your love for Me. Nothing is happening by accident. Accept everything from the God who loves you and pray for strength. If Satan is taunting you, send him away. When your peace is starting to go, know Satan is in it. He uses those closest to you to taunt you.
Pray constantly for those who are around you and bowed down. Pray for those in restaurants and on the street. Pray for your loved ones in darkness. Your job is not to get frustrated and up tight, but to lift up the troubled one to Me. You will soar in My love. Your peace will abound and you will be made whole in My arms. You seek Me, child. Seek and you will find. Focus on Me always and never on your problems. Be engulfed in My love. I love you.
Your ardent lover, Jesus.

(Letter for Front of B.B. II)
April 13, 1994
Jesus: How, child, do I, Jesus, tell you I love you? You hold on to silly things, when God is in your midst and is ardently loving you. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I am writing to each precious child this day. I am on fire for love of you. I remain in the Eucharist to be with you with My ardent love. I did not want to leave My beloved ones at the Last Supper. I love you so, My dear and ardently loved children. I remain with you this day in the Blessed Sacrament, the same Jesus Who died a brutal death on the cross.
Do you know I am truly present there? Do you know that God waits every day for you in the tabernacle? Do you comprehend even a minute amount of My love? You will never on earth know how I love you.
I, Jesus, truly the Son of God, came to earth a man and suffered a brutal death for love of you. I love you so much! I remain with you this day. I long for your love. I want you to come and be with Me in front of the tabernacle. I wait, I yearn for you to come and whisper your love to Me. I am a Person and I love you this day with such an ardent, on-fire love. No human could ever compare a speck to My love for you.
I wait, little ones, in the tabernacle. I wait for you to come and receive Me in Communion. I want you to want Me so much that you cannot wait to come and receive Me. I want to be the love, the Center of your life!
I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am writing to you this day. I want to possess your very soul and live in you. I have all you need, sweet ones. Oh, you are so blind! I long for your union with Me. I wrote the book on love. I instituted it, yet you go to the world for your love and do not even come to Me! Oh, I love you, little ones. Little ones, beloved of the Father, loved by the Holy Spirit, mothered by My very own mother, what more can I say? The rest is up to you!
I give you your will with such love and I want your love, freely given. I am God. What do you think you could ever need that I do not give you? I am the Savior of this world. I am Jesus, the Son of God. I am waiting for you. I am longing for you. I am yearning for you. I am God. I have all you ever will need!
Surrender this life to Me. Pray My prayer for union with Me. I want to possess your soul and operate from your very being. I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am Who am. I died and rose on the third day.
Harken to My call, harken to My pleading. Spend your days in love with Me. Nothing matters unless it is rooted in Me and rooted in My love. I am the Son of God. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I love you with the tenderest love. I am waiting this day for you, My beloved one. Come to Me for I am the tenderest of all hearts. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
I Want You Holy

I wanted to sleep, but I had to get up because I knew it was no mistake. I had just gone to bed at 11:30 p.m.!
R. I love You, Jesus. You are my spouse. I am Your servant. Help me in all Your ways to do Thy holy will. I love You so much.
Jesus: Come and put yourself in My presence. You were awakened by My call and I want you to come pronto. I have a message I want to deliver to you for this world. Ready your hearts for My call. When I call you early in the night I am ready to give you such a message.
I am your Savior. I am your God. I am Who am. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. Do you know Who I am? You catch glimpses of Me, you study My words, you know of My love.
Pray diligently that you will be taught such special lessons that are only taught to the most fervent hearts. Keep your soul so holy you do not want the tiniest stain of sin. You want to be pure as a bride on her wedding day. You want your gown so clean and white. What bride would want a big stain on her wedding dress? When you approach My altar, you want your gown spotless. Prepare your soul, go to Confession. Do not give in to any taunts from the devil to lead you astray. Pray for grace to ward him off. He is so evil and aims to trip you up!

Jesus: He works so unnoticed. You must guard your heart as an armed guard guards a treasury. Keep your focus on Me and your thoughts on My love. I am Jesus. Nothing can compare to the love of Jesus. Profess your love often and more often during the day, "Jesus, I love You. Jesus, You are my all. Jesus, I long to be with You. Keep me ever in Your ways. I am Your servant. You are my spouse. Jesus, I want to love You and be pure." Guard your thoughts, guard your heart. Do not give in to any anger. If someone is taunting you, cast Satan out in Jesus' name and pray for strength. When you are being tried by your brothers, Satan is at hand. Send him away!
Are you pure for your wedding and the meeting of our souls? No little flaw in your soul should be overlooked. Satan tells you little things are little things and burrows a hole in there as a worm does in an apple. Every little occurrence of anger, unkindness and selfishness should be avoided. I want you to be as the saints. Your communication with Me is the most glorious event! Do not give in to promptings of Satan who tells you that you are unworthy. You know in your heart when you are tempted and when you have sinned. Constantly send him away and strive for sainthood. No holiness is too high for you. With this as your goal, you will soon, with My help, guard against unkindness and anything that is not of Me.
I know you are not perfect and I do not demand perfection. I want your commitment to Me to holiness. Then you will be ready for daily Communion with Me.
Meditate on My Passion. Think of My scourging, My Blood, My sorrowful mother. Think of all I suffered. Such horror your mind cannot comprehend, and I was God. Meditate on My wounds and My mother by My side and then know more our love for you. I loved you so much as to suffer for you. The understanding of My intense love is enhanced by studying the Passion.
I loved you to My death, beaten, battered, bruised and bloodied—weak almost to the point of death all the way. But My death came slowly and My suffering was intense, all out of love for you. I stretched My arms wide and I surrendered as a little lamb being slaughtered, willingly and lovingly for love of you. My mother suffered so by My side. She suffered with such pain and she loves you so because I loved you so! My mother is indeed your mother! Such a mother to behold!

Jesus: When you meditate on this, you will become holy. I am the bridegroom of your soul. I wait for you with such love in your Communion with Me. Come and be dressed in your whitest gown. I am God. I wait for you. I am a King. Do you come with stains on your soul for such an occasion? Come in your purity and innocence. Come in your holiness. Come to Me, My beautiful spouse, white and ready for this event.
I know you will fall, sometimes, for small sins. Pray for forgiveness and come. Then go to Confession. Do not come, ever, if you have sinned mortally. This is not the way to receive the Son of Man. You must be as pure as a new bride. Your soul should be white. Always pray at the beginning of Mass with the priest for forgiveness. Make your souls holy for the Lord. He enters your mouth and you partake in union with Jesus, Son of Man.
But, you say, "Lord, You want me this holy?" I say, "Yes, I do want you this holy". To receive the Lord, you need to be constantly aware of My presence there. I am God. I am the true King of Heaven and Earth. I am coming to you as the bridegroom of your soul. Make yourself ready for Me.
At the point of your reception of Me, do not focus on your unworthiness. Focus only on My love. Before Communion you can focus on your unworthiness. At the beginning of Mass you can ask forgiveness for your sins. But, at the actual Communion, think only of My love for you. Do not focus on others and your affairs. Focus on our union together. How intense, that you receive God within your breast! I come with My heart on fire and with such intense love for you, burning, burning to be with you in Communion. Make ready your heart, for the King enters into your soul. You are My chosen. You are My beloved. You are so favored, to be given such an honor!
Focus on My love, My intense longing to be united with you. I am God and I am truly in your breast. I am the King of Heaven and Earth and I come and dwell in your heart with burning love. What an event to behold! This is My union with you. God-made-man comes and dwells in your heart! Oh, My child, with what honor you are favored! Behold Him coming and being in your body. God comes into your body! What holiness you possess! Guard your temples for they hold the King of Glory.

Jesus: I am your Savior. I am your King. I am Who am and I come to dwell in your body. Such honor for you. Guard your temple. You are the recipient of Jesus Christ, Son of God. Who are you that He humbles himself to enter into your body?
You, My child, are His beloved. You are His bride. You are so loved by Him that He died a brutal death for you.
Do you not know who you are? You are as you are because He has honored you. You are clothed in dignity and honor by His love. You are made holy by His presence. You are a temple of God. Guard your temple. Keep it pure and holy. Do not let any disrespect enter there. Be knowledgeable of your worth. You are precious, that God comes to you and dwells in your heart. Oh, such dignity and honor for you, little one. Such intense and burning love!
I am Jesus. I am your Savior. I am your lover. I am your priest. I am He Who cares for you intently. I am the healer, the doctor, the spouse, the one whose bootstraps you are unworthy to tie. I am Who am and I come to you. What dignity indeed! Honor your body, honor your soul. You are Mine.
Oh, beloved, do you know more now? Come and be prepared when you are in Communion with Me. I will tell you more and more. Be open and let Me work in your heart. Pray to the Holy Spirit for His gifts. Whither I go, the Holy Spirit and The Father are with Me. We are three in one. We are God. Be as an open door. Do not expect things—knowledge, earthly signs. Just be with Me and let Me work as I so desire.
Never run from Me after Communion. Be in intense union with Me. Take advantage of such a time. It is the most sacred moment of your life. You house God inside of you. Do not clutter your minds with worldly affairs. I know you far better than you know yourself. Come and be empty, only dwelling on My love for you. Savor these moments alone with Me. Close your eyes and melt into My arms. Think of nothing but My love. Sit and be still. This is the golden moment when our souls unite and we are one with each other. Come to Me, My beloved. I wait for you as the bridegroom of your soul.
I enter and you are speechless. Sit still and soak up all I give you. Just be. Experience My peace, My love, My healing. What you receive will be different at different times. Just be open and silent. Let Me work in you.
I love you, My beloved, and I wait for My union with you. You are so precious to Me. Come and be with Me. I am so loving. No man can give you even a crumb, compared to this love of Mine. Work on your love affair with Me. I will shower you with such love as you will never ever know in your earthly hearts. Come to Me, My beloved. I wait for you, the bridegroom of your soul.

R. The Eucharist is how we are fed. As we more and more understand what is happening, we become fed more and more in our souls.
Jesus: Feed the people. Get these messages on the True Presence and My love out. When they are fed by Me, their hearts will radiate My love to their brothers and it will be as one candle to the darkest night. My light cannot be contained inside a soul. My life is a vibrant energy that radiates from your very being. Feed My people with the love of Jesus in the Eucharist and watch My love grow deeper in their hearts. Feed the priests. Make them aware of this message. They are the leaders to lead My people back.
The power is found in the Mass and Jesus in the Tabernacle. Your union with Me will help save the sick world. It is no less than I describe here. More is to come. Your hearts will burn in your chest with My presence and My love. My might will radiate from your being.
Praise the Lord, for I honor you with My presence within your hearts. Come and be fed this day and every day. My might is endless and My love is without bounds. I am a vibrant force within your breast, unable to be contained. Your answers are in Jesus in the Eucharist.
Come and experience My power and My intense love for you, My longing for your heart. I am a personal God. I am this personal with you. So you say, "Oh, God I do not understand this," and I say, "Right, you will not understand Me and My ways and how I am. I am God. I am Divine and you are human." Experience My love and quiet your heads. Come with an open heart and the trust of a small child. Experience My love. Do not try to figure God out. Be grateful and experience My love in you.

R. We see Jesus living in the souls that He touches with these letters. As people with Jesus deep in our hearts, we have a spiritual union with Him and we become true brothers in Christ. There is love between us as in a spiritual family. The thread which is His love is woven between us, uniting us in a bond with one another. It is a very strong, spiritual bond. To see the love of Jesus in one's heart creates a great love for that person because we love Jesus so much. How can you not love a soul that is so fixed on love of Jesus? Our love for Jesus radiates from our being. Our brothers, who likewise love Jesus, become very close to us. We see Jesus in their lives and we cannot help but love the spirituality about them and the love of Christ which is emitted from their very being.
We are rich with the love of Jesus deep in our breasts and we are twice blessed with the love of Jesus in those with whom we share this love. We see His love in their souls and we are filled by His life in them. It is an energy that is created when we are joined together and it cannot be contained. Such a feeling of love between brothers is a powerful force indeed. The love of Jesus is so big. It grows when we are joined together with each other.
Praise Jesus for such great friends, whose hearts reflect His love and who emit such an energy which feeds us again. We are indeed His chosen ones to be given such blessings in Him and in each other! Jesus' love is a powerful force. We must continue toward union and not division. This force is spiritual and most loving. It is a mighty feeling to see Jesus' love in our brothers!

R. He is fortifying His army with our love. We are soldiers of love in this cold war. When joined, the warmth of His love is stronger than any cold (which was seen in the cold nights this winter at the seminary. December 3l was so cold, but so touching in my heart). I was very warmed by the company of those who were there. Is this our lesson, that we may be physically cold, but the warmth of Jesus' love in our hearts is the true warmth? We can freeze to death on the outside, but the love of Jesus warms our hearts to intensity on the inside. Our hearts are burning, our toes are frozen but what is important is the hearts, for we continue to appear in large numbers in the deepest cold. Remember December 8? Such an experience, the healing service of Christ the King. Wow! Such warmth! Special moments. All that matters are the things of God.
The food for our souls is Jesus Christ. We are fed by Him. We need the Eucharist. This is what sustains us. He is trying to tell us this in these messages. It is this, and this alone, that we need. Compared with cold temperatures, the things of God are the mighty things. Not things of the body—things of the soul! His food is food indeed. His drink is drink indeed. All that sustains us in the end are the things of God. His Body and His Blood are our true food! May we all see this truth in our hearts. The mystery of the Eucharist, God-made-man coming into our souls, is our true food. He is food and drink, indeed!!
Alleluia. God is so good and He has visited His people. He is in our presence. He is with us. We are the chosen and He comes in these messages to shout His love into our ears. He wakes me with noises to deliver this to you. Harken and listen! Such honor you possess! He comes to deliver a message to you. Do you think He would come to this world as a human being and die a brutal death and then let you miss His love? He is the same God today as the day He was born and died and resurrected. He is the same God, with the same message, with the same words, with the same love. He is God—one, true, consistent—and He delivers this message to You!

Jesus: Listen, My children. I am coming to you. I am your Savior. I am your ardent Lover. Listen, My little loved ones. I am Who am. Come to Me in the Eucharist. You are the chosen ones. Oh, let Me tell you of My love for you! Read these letters. Shout their contents. Hearts will know Me and My love from these letters. Get them out. I Tell you that you are the vibrant force that will change this world. I love you. Read My message. Shout it. People are numb and miserable.
I call each of you to be My thread to weave My blanket together. Study My messages here. Let Me possess your souls so I can operate your bodies. I need your selflessness. I need your union with Me.
What an army this is, My army of love! Many will come out in big numbers from these letters. You hold the key to opening the hardened hearts of America. Preach My love. Let the vibrancy of My love radiate from your souls.
You at the Center (Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, Norwood, Ohio) are My soldiers. Let Me form you into My warriors, warriors of love in this cold world. I have all the power. Let My power live in you. You house the real power in your souls. The world will take notice of the life within you. You are the threads of the tapestry. Strong threads you are when you are woven out of My love. My threads will not break for I am God and I am mighty! Your job is to become selfless and let Me possess you so I am operating from you. I want to use each of you to do My work. Do not tarry. Get My messages out to all My faithful ones. My army is dependent on You!
Such a big job, you say? Not a big job when I am the power behind the operation! You will fly when you rest in My arms. I want this done. Who are you to think you are doing it? I am He Who operates you and My ways are steadfast and direct and without error. When I do the work, it is a major success.

Jesus: Who could do such work as at the Center except a mighty force that powers it all. I am so happy for My faithful servants there and all those who work so hard. Their work is bearing much fruit, but the power behind it all is Mine. I want this to happen and it will. You are being powered by Me. Let go and relax. I do not make mistakes. My mother is there in it all. My work is at hand. Yours is total submission. You are working on a sure thing. Little distractions are but little distractions to the big plan. Accept all things as coming from Him Who loves you.
Alleluia. You are My faithful ones. Know I am in the tabernacle, ready with your supplies. Come and be charged by Me. Sit and soak in the rays. I work in your hearts and you go away with My might. You come empty, you leave full. You are My warriors going into battle. Your supplies are in front of the tabernacle. Your food is the Holy Eucharist. Your answer is union with Jesus Christ. Quit looking to your feeble minds and your earthly ways to solve your problems. Come to Me and be empty and let Me work through you. You are My soldiers. Be submissive and yielding to the Master. Your union with Me is the answer. I am He Who has all the might. You are My servants. Be selfless, submissive, and let Me possess your souls. Die to yourselves that you will live in Me.
Alleluia. I come to you here and you will heed all I have given you. When I call, you answer. I am calling you today to be attentive to Me, for I am He Who loves you and wants to possess your soul. I am mighty. My might will flow from you. Be selfless, pray constantly, open wide and I enter in and you no longer are you, but Myself, dwelling within you. Alleluia.
Such might! Who could possess such might? And you worry! For what? I am He Who powers you. Be selfless and unattached and be busy, for the work at hand depends on your faith and trust in Me. Pray for strength against the evil one. Do not worry. I am Almighty. Just do your job and get your love from Me. You must follow My directions here—Mass, Holy Communion, Adoration, Prayer for Union with Me and prayer to the Holy Spirit. Your mother is watching after you. Pray, pray, pray. Pray to God The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Pray! Mary is ever by your side. Where I am, so is My mother. You needn't worry. You do not do it in the end. You become selfless. Let Me operate your souls. I am God. I am mighty. I am your all!

"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.
