                July 4, 2011 - Awakened at 3:00am
                Jesus gave me message for today 3:45am

                R. Dear God help us to work for peace —
                We ask to have the grace to forgive and
                    thus to love —

                Give us courage God, where our
                    enemies have hurt us to
                    forgive with a true and
                    generous heart — A heart
                    likened to the Heart of our
                    Savior, Jesus Christ —

                In adversities we knew God
                    with us always and we knew
                    His love —

                We saw how we were to focus on
                    this and to move more and more to
                    less focus on the body that will
                    deteriorate and die, but when
                    we die our life will continue —
                    a reward for eternal life promised
                    to those who loved and served the
                    Lord here below — Everlasting
                    love, unity, harmony — living
                    in the Father's will perfectly —
                    in the fullness of life in heaven —
                    here we walk in this valley of
                    tears — our greatest joy being
                    those times of greatest
                    intimacy with our God —

                    Our bodies slow down, get
                old, ache, our deeper life
                in God increases — Life in
                Him — our journey here below —
                In the cutting back, there is
                the growth — The suffering
                comes in realizing reality
                and how the human race in
                its disharmony and rebellion
                are offending God — Suffering
                for the rebellions of this
                tainted race —

                    Oh God we want to make
                reparation for our sins, for
                our offenses against Thee —
                In pain and suffering we know
                the intimacy with Thee — for
                You call us to Yourself — to
                walk the passion and to suffer
                these injustices with the
                courage to seek Your Kingdom
                of joy and love and serve You
                with a sweet and gentle
                heart despite injury done to us —
                for injury done to the body of
                Christ — to You our beloved God
                is so very great indeed —

                Song: I Am a God of Justice

                R. We will pray from the building
                where Mary appeared July 4th
                ever deeply for the injustices
                of the people of the United States who
                have offended God by their
                rebellion to God's laws, when
                they were so richly blessed —
                Pray hard and enter into deep
                unity in helping to make great
                reparation for our sins —

                    Focusing on our injustices
                done as members of the body
                of Christ to one another —

                    We have a part to play in
                this life and when we die and go
                to heaven to realize our part
                played below during our life
                and seeing the fruits of our
                labor when we are gone —

                    As we see Padre Pio and
                St. Paul and Pope John Paul II
                and their work continues even
                though they no longer walk
                the earth —

                    We see our part in the plan
                of God to help build the Kingdom —
                in an entirety that goes on
                after we are dead —

                    We contribute what God
                has called us uniquely to do —
                We are to help build the Kingdom of God —

                    We walk in the newness of
                life — We know our life is to
                change to be more and more in
                the image of Christ —

                    We are not tied down by
                injuries done to us — as we see
                the injustices done to Christ
                in the passion — we focus
                on our contribution in the
                life of resurrection —

                    Green is a color I see
                so clear — green fields of
                beauty and growth from gifts
                God gave to this land —

                    Blue is the color of the
                beautiful seas, waters, oceans —
                God gave us for life —

                    The fish that never run
                out feeding us —

                    The beautiful corals and life
                beneath the sea —

                    Oh America, Oh United States
                so richly blessed — how can
                you not thank your God who
                has blessed us in abundance
                and man who has rebelled against
                a gentle and loving and generous
                God —

                    Oh God forgive our sins —
                    Oh God forgive our failings —
                    Oh God You are our God —

                Light shines on this earth —
                God owns the world —
                God created us and we
                    belong to God —

                How can we take our talents
                and use them for our own
                vain glory —

                    As if the love God gives us
                is limited and we should fear —
                when in fact — the more we
                give — the more we receive —
                God's love has NO BOUNDS —
                God's love does not run out —

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

Jesus: My dear children,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Pain - Naples, Florida

R. He spread His arms, He gave His all, Jesus, the Son of God, the greatest sacrifice, He gave Himself entirely for the good of all men. He opened His arms, He died on the cross.

His arms were covered with blood, His arms so weak and filled with pain, wounded. His arms, the pain shot up His arms and the final blow to each arm a nail through each precious hand.

All the agony He experienced, all the pain, and the crown, to each arm, a nail hammered into the hand.

All the nerves cut and severed by the nail, the pain shooting up His precious arms, the final blow given to His most precious members.

The legs that carried Him, that carried the heavy cross, the legs that were forced and cajoled, that continues to Calvary - the legs weakened, skinned, bleeding, beaten, burned, the legs that knew patience and perseverance, the legs connected to a sore foot that was rubbed and gashed and bleeding, the members of Jesus, filled with such pain and exhaustion, now is crowned with the final glory. The nail that was driven into the foot, the pain shot up this already weakened leg, covered with blood and wounds and pain, the final blow, the nerves severed by the hammered nail.

A blow to each hand, a blow to each foot, a blow to the head, a stamping that pressed down and continued in excruciating pain.

Jesus: They numbered all My bones. They gave Me vinegar and gall to drink. They gave Me a cloth to wipe My blood-covered flesh.

What did they give to Me? Love is giving, My dear ones. How many of you are wounded when you are not given things by your brothers you love?

My members were in such pain, the pain shot up My arms. My legs were so weak I could scarce move them. I was filled with pain within them.

To all who watched, they saw a man, weakened and covered with blood and wounds. They did not see the pain inside that shot up My legs and arms, the nerves inside My body that sent signals of deep pain to My central nervous system. They did not see the nerves inside sending pain signals everywhere.

The final blow being to each hand and foot, the severing of My nerves by the blunt and rusted nails.

An arm extended. A final blow. I beheld a nail pounded into My hand and the pain shot up My arms, unbearable to a human mind.

Do you know of the pain within My body? Signals sending messages of deep pain everywhere. I knew all of these sufferings in the garden. So great were the sufferings to My mind, I sweat blood.

My flesh was covered with wounds. My arms were stretched from their sockets. My body was beaten and bleeding, every inch of My body covered with deep wounds. But, My loved ones, you miss the depth of My love. My wounds were so deep, but the final wound, the pounding of the nails in My hands and feet, a severing of the nerves, an ending of the deepest pain, to experience even deeper pain, beyond your human comprehension, it was done to the Almighty God, a Divine Person, I suffered the final blow to each member.

The pounding in the hands and feet, the crown to each member, and they numbered all My bones. My nerves a network of pain running throughout My entire body.

The pain within the body, the pain recorded in My loving head, the pain sent by a network of nerves in My body, now records the final blows, the nails in the hands and feet, the pain being recorded from every thorn that pierced My skull, every gash to My body, the pain, the pain, the pain - a network of signals and pain, running through My body and the final hour, the pains recorded on the cross, arms outstretched - a surrendering to all pain. I surrendered to a body laden with pain.

You focus on your little problems, your little aches and pains. You discuss them and show the world your pin pricks and sufferings.

Do you want to know holiness and love? They gave Me vinegar mixed with gall. This was their offering. They gave Me a cross. They crowned My head with a crown of thorns.

This, My dear ones, is suffering, My beloved souls, I gave My life for and this is their return.

A severing of My nerves, the final blows to all the aches and pains recorded in My nervous system. This was one of the final blows - the rusted nails pounded into My hands.

You will feel little aches and pains in your hands and feet to remind you of this message. Your understanding of the immense pain within will deepen. What was visible to the eye on My battered body was nothing compared to the pains within. I gave My all. I gave My insides, My mind, My Heart, wounded for the love of men.

All functions in the body were stopped.

The final curtain, blood and water pouring out from My Heart, show that all functions of the body had ended.

R. All signals that carried messages of immense pain had ended, the final act of surrender for God to die to this human body and surrender His flesh.

Jesus: And end, a beginning, the water and blood flowed from My Heart, the beginning of My life in the Church, life flowing into your spirit.

R. Come give me life, abundant life. I thirst to be with Thee.

Jesus: My blood was spent. My human flesh and blood offered as the sacrifice, the sacrifice of Calvary is now made present at every Mass.

An end, a beginning, and the grace and life flow through the sacraments in the Church. My life flows to you in the Mass. Mary, the Mediatrix of all grace, stands by the side of the altar and the grace flows from the Father, through My body offered up as a sacrifice in the Holy Spirit, given through the Mothership of Mary to you in the Church.

You stand under the cross with My Mother and you receive the gift given, My Body, My Blood.

R. Man is reconciled with the Father through the Divine Person, Jesus Christ, and you receive His life poured out to you as Calvary is made present in the unbloody sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Do you feel the graces poured out to you at this sacrifice of the Son of God at every Mass? Do you feel the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and Mary, all the angels and saints, and the souls in purgatory? Do you feel united as one at the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present upon the altar through the priest? The priest who now puts on Christ and through Him the dispenser of this life given to man.

Jesus: Oh, My beloved ones, love so dearly your priest. Give him such reverence. He is the chosen instrument of God and you treat him with such ordinariness. You are so blind and so dumb in your ways.

And they numbered all My bones. Each nerve carrying a message of My love of mankind, each member in My Church carrying a special message, all united as one working in harmony according to the Father's will, each carrying a message of love to one another.

The body is many members, you are the messengers of My love. Christ is the head. The message does not flow as it should when some are cut off from the Head.

They nailed My hands and feet and My nerves were severed by the nails, such pain, undescribable in words, the severing of My nerves from the body, the severing of many members from the body of Christ.

My Body given for all on the cross, the network of nerves within carrying the messages of My love to all mankind. My body covered on the outside with blood and wounded, the pain recorded within.

Your Church, covered with blood on the outside, the slaughter of innocent babies, the homosexuality, the sins of the flesh, the members that have severed themselves from the source by their sins, but the pain is carried in the nerves inside. The blood of the Lamb shed for each and every soul, the real pain carried within. The life is weakened in your Church because the love of God is so weak in many members. The messages of love are not being transmitted as they should be. Your body shows the wounds, but your pain within is the root of the problems. The pain is from the messages of love that are not being transmitted.

Unless you seek to fill your priests and sisters with the fire of God's love, fill their hearts with burning love for God, your Church will continue to show the marks of the blood shed without. I give to you these letters as a mighty medicine for this world, directed to make men's hearts burn with love of God and love of one another. The rosaries are meditations and messages given from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

These messages will make men's hearts burn with fire for love of God.

You have ignored the importance of these letters.

I send to you the mighty medicine to heal a hurting world.

My priests and religious need these messages. The love of God will be transmitted to the Church from these messages when you circulate these letters.

The devil has blocked the minds of men involved in these messages because of their importance to the world and the Church.

I am speaking to you, the founder, to help to get these messages published and circulated as soon as possible. I give to you a mighty medicine for a sick world.

Read St. Thomas Aquinas about the medicine for the sick Church.

You know what these messages have done for you. I am Jesus. I give to you the mighty medicine for a sick world, for a sick Church, rosaries and letters from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Your Church shows the wounds of bloodshed, abortion, homosexuality, sins of the flesh, murder of little children's minds with sex education in Catholic schools and you hold back the gifts of God's love I am giving to the Church and this world.

My arms were weak and wounded but the final blow as the nail put in My hand. It severed the nerves.

The final blow is the bloodshed in the Church, the slaughtering of children's minds in Catholic schools. My children are pure and innocent. They are not being taught messages of God's love, they are being taught messages of sick sex and coldness.

Men's hearts have turned cold. They have been severed from the life of the body. The body is decaying from within. Only with the love of God enkindled in men's hearts will this bloodshed stop.

I beg you to publish and circulate these messages in the Church. I am Jesus. I am giving you the mighty medicine for the world. Your body wears the marks of the bloodshed, only with messages of My on-fire love will it stop.

Mary leads you to Jesus. Never is she the end. The Father has a plan. Mary's messages have led men and will lead men to Jesus. Satan has tried to stop all efforts to publish and circulate these messages. I am the Almighty God. The funds will come when you circulate and publish these messages and rosaries under the Shepherds of Christ Publishing. I am working with the founder and Rita as messenger to renew the Church and the world. Each messenger has a very vital role in the Father's plan. The significance of these messages are being overlooked. You are not studying the messages as a whole and their content. There are five unpublished Blue Books and more than four Rosary Books which I and My Mother have given to this world in the last 14 months. I have also given 15 songs of My love. I am begging you to see to the recording and publishing of this music. I beg you to listen. This is the mighty medicine for the Church and the world to draw men to the burning love of Jesus. Please harken to My call. I will send you the money. You must study and read these messages. This is a fulfillment of Fatima - these messages were given to bring priests to the burning love of Jesus. I am Jesus, your beloved Savior.

Sorrowful Mysteries

                The Agony in the Garden

                (1) R. Jesus sweat blood in the garden
                    His grief was so great —
                    Beyond anything we could imagine —

                (2) R. The Apostles slept
                    Peter, James and John
                    Jesus told them to Watch
                    Jesus told them to Pray

                (3) R. Judas was the betrayer —
                    Jesus told them at supper —
                    Judas was a betrayer of Jesus, Jesus who
                        loved Him so much —

                (4) R. Jesus was sold for 30 pieces of silver —
                    Judas kept the purse

                (5) R. Jesus in so much anguish He sweat

                    will or their own —
                    Jesus prayed to the Father —

                (7) R. Jesus prayed:

Matthew 26: 39

... ‘My Father,’ he said, ‘if it is possible, let this cup pass me by. Nevertheless, let it be as you, not I, would have it.’

                (8) John 3: 16

For this is how God loved the world:
he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him 
    may not perish
but may have eternal life.

                (9) R. The devil wants souls for hell —
                    Jesus came our Savior —
                    Jesus is the Savior of the world —
                    We can resist doing our selfish will against
                        God's will, if we follow in Jesus'
                        footprints we serve God the Father —
                        we do God the Father's will —
                        We resist temptation —

                (10) R. Judas betrayed Jesus
                    Judas was sneaky —

                        the other Apostles —
                    Judas betrayed Jesus with a kiss —
                    Judas betrayed the Son of God with
                        a kiss —
                    The Apostles were afraid —
                    They saw what they did to Jesus —
                    Do we abandon Jesus for our
                        selfish disobedience to God's will?

                    Jesus healed the guy who lost his ear —
                    Jesus worked miracles —
                    Jesus told them to put away the
                        sword —
                    The man's ear was healed —

                        heal our ears —
                    Jesus was led away like a criminal —
                        Mary suffered so much —
                        The Apostles suffered —

                    The men taking Jesus laughed at Jesus, hit Jesus —
                        Jesus knew all these whippings
                        He would get in the garden —

                    Judas despaired
                    Judas betrayed the Son of God —

                    Jesus was whipped, mistreated —

                    Mary took care of Him as a baby —
                    Mary watched Him learn to walk and talk —
                    Mary knew He, her beloved Son, was
                        arrested —

  

                Whipping at the Pillar

                (1) R. Oh Jesus we are sorry for our sins —
                    Oh Jesus we are sorry we offended
                        You with our sins —

                (2) R. They arrested Jesus, the prophet —
                    They lied about what Jesus said.

                    Jesus is the King of all Kings —

                (3) R. Jesus was the innocent Lamb led
                        to the slaughter
                    Jesus was whipped for our sins —
                    Jesus was the teacher of love and
                    They hit Jesus —

                (4) R. Jesus cured the sick, Jesus drove
                    out demons — Jesus worked
                    miracles — Jesus, the King
                    of the Jews —

                (5) R. Jesus was innocent
                    Jesus is the Son of God
                    and they whipped Him — They hit
                    His face —
                    He bled — Men laughed —
                    They had no shame —
                    All God has given to us —
                    Our life —
                    Our love — His love for us —

                (6) R. We can disobey Him and act as if He
                    doesn't see our lies, deception,
                    hurting the Plan of the Father
                    by disobedience —
                    like disobedient children —
                    We say — "no God"
                    we want to do it our way  —

                (7) R. Like God doesn't see our
                    deceiving, selfish hearts —
                    The devil is the father of lies —
                    Lies drive us from God —
                    We become more blinded —
                    Saints don't want to offend
                    God because they love God —

                    Jesus was whipped for our sins —
                    Jesus wore strips for our lies,
                        our deception, our hiding
                        when we wronged God and
                        then tried to make the wrong
                        we did appear right —
                        further offending God —

                (8) R. God shed the saving Blood —
                    Jesus, the Son of God —
                    Jesus' Blood was spilled
                        for us —
                    Watched His blood flow
                        because of our sins —

                (9) R. And He was whipped for
                        our lies
                    Judas despaired —
                    We can't change God's plan
                        with our willful ways —
                        We hurt ourselves —
                        We offend God and
                        We hurt souls —
                    Souls Jesus shed His Blood for —
                    Souls Jesus died for —

                (10) R. The devil wants us to despair —
                    The devil wants us to say no to God's will —
                    The devil wants us to say "I will not serve"
                    The devil wants us to hate —

                    Jesus is love —
                    If we are like God —
                        we love —

                    The devil wants us to be unloving —

                    They lied about Jesus' teaching —
                    Jesus the Messiah was
                        whipped for our sins —
                        He did not sin —
                    Gentle Jesus accused of all
                        these lies!!
                    He paid for our deception
                        and lies with beatings,
                        with His Blood —
                    His flesh was torn —
                    Jesus is the King —
                    Jesus is the King of Heaven and Earth
                    Jesus is the way, the truth
                        and the life —
                    They beat the Lord of truth!

                    They wanted Barabbas
                    They passed Jesus to Herod —
                    They punished the Son of God —

                    Jesus who restored sight to
                        the blind —
                    Jesus who changed water into
                        wine
                    Jesus who cast out devils —
                    Jesus who healed lepers —
                    Jesus beaten, bloodied, His
                        flesh torn —
                    Jesus is crowned with a crown
                        of thorns —

  

                Crowning with Thorns

                (1) R. Jesus is the way, the truth and
                    the life

                (2) R. Jesus is the King of all men —
                    Jesus died so we could live
                        in Him —
                    Jesus paid the price for
                        our sins with His
                        Blood

                (3) R. Men hide their sins sometimes and
                    act like God doesn't know —
                    How foolish!!

                (4) R. Men beat the raw back of
                        Jesus — blow after blow —
                        tearing His flesh —
                        beating His back —
                    Suffering, Suffering, Suffering —
                    It is 'just' for God to punish us
                        for our sins — our lies —
                    God who is all just —

                    Song: I Am a God of Justice

                    R. They beat Jesus at the pillar —
                    He stood in a puddle of His
                        own blood —
                    His whole body a bloody
                        bath of open wounds
                        for our sins
                    Jesus knows the evil in our
                        hearts — the deception,
                        He paid for it

                (5) R. When they beat Him so hard —
                        they beat Him harder —
                        they beat and beat God —
                        they laughed and laughed —
                    Angry men with all their
                        strengthen and malice —
                    They beat Jesus raw —
                        for our sins —
                    Jesus knows —
                    They beat His Head —
                    His hair matted with
                        clotted blood for
                        our pride —
                    His precious Head — crowned
                        with thorns after beating,
                        after beating, after beating
                        tearing His flesh —

                    Oh God we are sorry for our
                        lies, pride, anger
                        seeking dominance for dominance
                        sake —
                        gluttony —
                        giving into our will against
                            the Father's will —
                        lust —
                        luring others into sin —
                    Jesus bore the stripes for all
                        we did —
                    We beat Him at the pillar —
                    We crowned Him with thorns —
                    We were unloving —
                    We were prideful
                    Blood from His mouth —
                        teeth in His tongue

                    What we do to others we do
                        to Jesus
                    If we provoke others and laugh —
                        we are doing it to Jesus —
                    When we say we know the truth
                        and we lie — we are lying to
                        Jesus —
                    We try to rise above Jesus for
                        satan —
                    We whipped Jesus at the pillar —
                    He was a bloody sponge —
                    Raw and whipped —
                    Crowned with our pride —
                    Obstinacies

                (6) R. Crowned for our hatred —
                    Laughed at for our control,
                        envy and jealousies —
                        our hateful ways —

                (7) R. Blood, Blood, Blood —
                    Shed for our deception —
                    Our raising over others
                    Our sins

                (8) R. The devil wants us to think
                        we did no wrong —
                        to be full of vices —
                        not virtue —

                    Oh God — You paid for our sins —
                    Oh God, Oh God, forgive our
                        sins —
                    Oh God (Jesus), help us to be holy and
                        to do this work spreading
                        love for the most precious
                        price that You paid for us —

                (9) R. "Behold the Man"

                    Jesus was wrapped in a purple
                        robe, given a scepter and His
                        head pounded with thorns —
                        pounded and bloodied —
                        His eyes full of blood —

                (10) R. God has all the Power —
                    The Crowd yelled:
                        "Crucify Him"
                        "Crucify Him"
                        "Crucify Him"

                    Should I crucify your King?
                        "Crucify Him"

  

   

                The Carrying of the Cross

                (1) August 23, 1993 (excerpt)

On His Passion

Jesus: My dear child,
I was condemned to death, death on a cross. They gave Me a big cross and made Me carry it. They stood around and glared at Me. It weighed on My shoulder and I pulled at it until it finally moved. Every step was almost impossible as I dragged it, weighing so heavily on My shoulders.

My shoulder felt as if the bones inside would crack and the cross would fall through to the ground. I couldn’t drag it any more. I tried, I fell. I fell and its weight fell on Me. A guard hit Me with something sharp. It really hurt because he wanted Me to move, and fast! People were watching — on with the show! How dare I fall in the middle of the show! He hit Me again and the blow really stung Me. I got up because it hurt so badly. I tried to walk on.

My Mother was in the crowd. She looked at Me and her face looked red and hurt. Tears rolled down her cheeks like rain and as her eyes met Mine, I was hurt so by her sorrow! She was always by My side, silent and loving. She was My mother of love! She is always there next to you when you suffer.

I fell again and he (the guard) really hit Me. It (the cross) was so heavy that he and I together could barely move it. It seemed as I walked, heavier with the sins of the world heaped on it. My hands were bleeding. Blood ran from the wounds of My thorns and My head throbbed, seeming to make the wounds in My head bleed even more. Some of the Blood was dried, some of it running all over My Body. I had so many cuts and bruises — and people watched and laughed!

I am Jesus, Son of the Living God, and they laughed and mimicked Me! Oh, such hardened hearts! How vile can men’s heart become? The devil’s grip is paralyzing and crippling.

The walk was so long up a hill and over rocks — the cross had to be lifted over the rocks. My Body was bleeding so badly! My heart was pounding. I knew that the salvation of all men depended on My love. Therefore, I went through such agony.

                (2) R. They whipped Jesus to get up —
                    A mob followed Jesus
                    Mary and John and Mary Magdaline followed —

                (3) R. They whipped Him
                    He fell all full of blood under the
                        cross
                    They whipped Him again and again

                (4) R. Mary remembered her little boy —
                        She held Him
                        She loved Him
                    She looked into His face —
                    Now she looked into His bloodied face —
                    Jesus could hardly go on —
                    She saw His torn face —
                        covered with wounds and blood —
                        His eyes a bloody mess
                    They whipped Him to move —

                (5) R. They didn't give up —
                    It's like the energy in these
                        men from the devil to
                        whip the Son of God —

                (6) R. Veronica wiped His face

                (7) R. Whipping and whipping Jesus —
                    They made Simon of
                    Cyrene help Jesus —
                    You help Him!! — they said —
                    "Help Him" —
                    The 2 of them could hardly carry
                        the cross

                (8) R. Jesus had washed their feet —
                    Now He was whipped raw —
                        with this heavy cross
                        laden with our sins —

                    Jesus had celebrated the Last Supper 

Luke 22: 19-20

Then he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ He did the same with the cup after supper, and said, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood poured out for you.

   

                (9) R. The procession to Calvary
                    was a journey He endured
                    for our sins — for love
                    of us —

                (10) R. Jesus was stripped —
                    Jesus was laid on the cross —
                    Jesus nailed to it by
                    His hands and feet —

                    Sing: Little Baby Hands and Feet

                R. In this passion and death Christ
                    endured extreme suffering —
                    The people wanted His Blood —
                    And His Blood He shed —
                    He was mocked, whipped raw,
                    crowned with thorns —

                    Jesus' message:
                    ". . . love your enemies and pray
                    for those who persecute
                    you" —

                Jesus was abandoned by His
                    Apostles and friends —

                Jesus, the most tender Heart
                    suffered for us —

                Jesus is the Good Shepherd —
                Jesus laid down His life for
                    His sheep —

                His whole body torn to
                    shreds —

  

                The Crucifixion

                (1) June 26, 1995 - The Pain - Naples, Florida

R. He spread His arms, He gave His all, Jesus, the Son of God, the greatest sacrifice, He gave Himself entirely for the good of all men. He opened His arms, He died on the cross.

His arms were covered with blood, His arms so weak and filled with pain, wounded. His arms, the pain shot up His arms and the final blow to each arm a nail through each precious hand.

All the agony He experienced, all the pain, and the crown, to each arm, a nail hammered into the hand.

All the nerves cut and severed by the nail, the pain shooting up His precious arms, the final blow given to His most precious members.

The legs that carried Him, that carried the heavy cross, the legs that were forced and cajoled, that continues to Calvary - the legs weakened, skinned, bleeding, beaten, burned, the legs that knew patience and perseverance, the legs connected to a sore foot that was rubbed and gashed and bleeding, the members of Jesus, filled with such pain and exhaustion, now is crowned with the final glory. The nail that was driven into the foot, the pain shot up this already weakened leg, covered with blood and wounds and pain, the final blow, the nerves severed by the hammered nail.

A blow to each hand, a blow to each foot, a blow to the head, a stamping that pressed down and continued in excruciating pain.

Jesus: They numbered all My bones. They gave Me vinegar and gall to drink. They gave Me a cloth to wipe My blood-covered flesh.

What did they give to Me? Love is giving, My dear ones. How many of you are wounded when you are not given things by your brothers you love?

My members were in such pain, the pain shot up My arms. My legs were so weak I could scarce move them. I was filled with pain within them.

To all who watched, they saw a man, weakened and covered with blood and wounds. They did not see the pain inside that shot up My legs and arms, the nerves inside My body that sent signals of deep pain to My central nervous system. They did not see the nerves inside sending pain signals everywhere.

The final blow being to each hand and foot, the severing of My nerves by the blunt and rusted nails.

An arm extended. A final blow. I beheld a nail pounded into My hand and the pain shot up My arms, unbearable to a human mind.

Do you know of the pain within My body? Signals sending messages of deep pain everywhere. I knew all of these sufferings in the garden. So great were the sufferings to My mind, I sweat blood.

My flesh was covered with wounds. My arms were stretched from their sockets. My body was beaten and bleeding, every inch of My body covered with deep wounds. But, My loved ones, you miss the depth of My love. My wounds were so deep, but the final wound, the pounding of the nails in My hands and feet, a severing of the nerves, an ending of the deepest pain, to experience even deeper pain, beyond your human comprehension, it was done to the Almighty God, a Divine Person, I suffered the final blow to each member.

The pounding in the hands and feet, the crown to each member, and they numbered all My bones. My nerves a network of pain running throughout My entire body.

The pain within the body, the pain recorded in My loving head, the pain sent by a network of nerves in My body, now records the final blows, the nails in the hands and feet, the pain being recorded from every thorn that pierced My skull, every gash to My body, the pain, the pain, the pain - a network of signals and pain, running through My body and the final hour, the pains recorded on the cross, arms outstretched - a surrendering to all pain. I surrendered to a body laden with pain.

You focus on your little problems, your little aches and pains. You discuss them and show the world your pin pricks and sufferings.

Do you want to know holiness and love? They gave Me vinegar mixed with gall. This was their offering. They gave Me a cross. They crowned My head with a crown of thorns.

This, My dear ones, is suffering, My beloved souls, I gave My life for and this is their return.

A severing of My nerves, the final blows to all the aches and pains recorded in My nervous system. This was one of the final blows - the rusted nails pounded into My hands.

You will feel little aches and pains in your hands and feet to remind you of this message. Your understanding of the immense pain within will deepen. What was visible to the eye on My battered body was nothing compared to the pains within. I gave My all. I gave My insides, My mind, My Heart, wounded for the love of men.

All functions in the body were stopped.

The final curtain, blood and water pouring out from My Heart, show that all functions of the body had ended.

R. All signals that carried messages of immense pain had ended, the final act of surrender for God to die to this human body and surrender His flesh.

Jesus: And end, a beginning, the water and blood flowed from My Heart, the beginning of My life in the Church, life flowing into your spirit.

R. Come give me life, abundant life. I thirst to be with Thee.

Jesus: My blood was spent. My human flesh and blood offered as the sacrifice, the sacrifice of Calvary is now made present at every Mass.

An end, a beginning, and the grace and life flow through the sacraments in the Church. My life flows to you in the Mass. Mary, the Mediatrix of all grace, stands by the side of the altar and the grace flows from the Father, through My body offered up as a sacrifice in the Holy Spirit, given through the Mothership of Mary to you in the Church.

You stand under the cross with My Mother and you receive the gift given, My Body, My Blood.

R. Man is reconciled with the Father through the Divine Person, Jesus Christ, and you receive His life poured out to you as Calvary is made present in the unbloody sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Do you feel the graces poured out to you at this sacrifice of the Son of God at every Mass? Do you feel the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and Mary, all the angels and saints, and the souls in purgatory? Do you feel united as one at the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present upon the altar through the priest? The priest who now puts on Christ and through Him the dispenser of this life given to man.

Jesus: Oh, My beloved ones, love so dearly your priest. Give him such reverence. He is the chosen instrument of God and you treat him with such ordinariness. You are so blind and so dumb in your ways.

And they numbered all My bones. Each nerve carrying a message of My love of mankind, each member in My Church carrying a special message, all united as one working in harmony according to the Father's will, each carrying a message of love to one another.

The body is many members, you are the messengers of My love. Christ is the head. The message does not flow as it should when some are cut off from the Head.

They nailed My hands and feet and My nerves were severed by the nails, such pain, undescribable in words, the severing of My nerves from the body, the severing of many members from the body of Christ.

My Body given for all on the cross, the network of nerves within carrying the messages of My love to all mankind. My body covered on the outside with blood and wounded, the pain recorded within.

Your Church, covered with blood on the outside, the slaughter of innocent babies, the homosexuality, the sins of the flesh, the members that have severed themselves from the source by their sins, but the pain is carried in the nerves inside. The blood of the Lamb shed for each and every soul, the real pain carried within. The life is weakened in your Church because the love of God is so weak in many members. The messages of love are not being transmitted as they should be. Your body shows the wounds, but your pain within is the root of the problems. The pain is from the messages of love that are not being transmitted.

Unless you seek to fill your priests and sisters with the fire of God's love, fill their hearts with burning love for God, your Church will continue to show the marks of the blood shed without. I give to you these letters as a mighty medicine for this world, directed to make men's hearts burn with love of God and love of one another. The rosaries are meditations and messages given from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

These messages will make men's hearts burn with fire for love of God.

You have ignored the importance of these letters.

I send to you the mighty medicine to heal a hurting world.

My priests and religious need these messages. The love of God will be transmitted to the Church from these messages when you circulate these letters.

The devil has blocked the minds of men involved in these messages because of their importance to the world and the Church.

I am speaking to you, the founder, to help to get these messages published and circulated as soon as possible. I give to you a mighty medicine for a sick world.

Read St. Thomas Aquinas about the medicine for the sick Church.

You know what these messages have done for you. I am Jesus. I give to you the mighty medicine for a sick world, for a sick Church, rosaries and letters from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Your Church shows the wounds of bloodshed, abortion, homosexuality, sins of the flesh, murder of little children's minds with sex education in Catholic schools and you hold back the gifts of God's love I am giving to the Church and this world.

My arms were weak and wounded but the final blow as the nail put in My hand. It severed the nerves.

The final blow is the bloodshed in the Church, the slaughtering of children's minds in Catholic schools. My children are pure and innocent. They are not being taught messages of God's love, they are being taught messages of sick sex and coldness.

Men's hearts have turned cold. They have been severed from the life of the body. The body is decaying from within. Only with the love of God enkindled in men's hearts will this bloodshed stop.

I beg you to publish and circulate these messages in the Church. I am Jesus. I am giving you the mighty medicine for the world. Your body wears the marks of the bloodshed, only with messages of My on-fire love will it stop.

Mary leads you to Jesus. Never is she the end. The Father has a plan. Mary's messages have led men and will lead men to Jesus. Satan has tried to stop all efforts to publish and circulate these messages. I am the Almighty God. The funds will come when you circulate and publish these messages and rosaries under the Shepherds of Christ Publishing. I am working with the founder and Rita as messenger to renew the Church and the world. Each messenger has a very vital role in the Father's plan. The significance of these messages are being overlooked. You are not studying the messages as a whole and their content. There are five unpublished Blue Books and more than four Rosary Books which I and My Mother have given to this world in the last 14 months. I have also given 15 songs of My love. I am begging you to see to the recording and publishing of this music. I beg you to listen. This is the mighty medicine for the Church and the world to draw men to the burning love of Jesus. Please harken to My call. I will send you the money. You must study and read these messages. This is a fulfillment of Fatima - these messages were given to bring priests to the burning love of Jesus. I am Jesus, your beloved Savior.

                (2) August 23, 1993 - On His Passion continues

Jesus: I thought of My intense love for you — that many would go to heaven because of My suffering — and I continued to the top of the hill. At the top they laid Me on the cross and with a big hammer nailed My hands to it. It was the worst (suffering) yet. My hands were nailed with big nails and the big hammer. Oh, it was unbelievable! Then, as if that weren’t enough, with a big nail they nailed through both feet.

Then they lifted the cross and banged it into (a hole in) the ground. My shoulders ached from how I hung. My head bobbed and My neck ached and they laughed and said, "Now save Yourself." I hurt so much! I suffered this way for hours — which seemed like forever — and they glared at Me and laughed! My Mother watched in such agony.

For love of you, to My death I gave you My Body. My child, I shed My Blood and gave you My life that you might be with Me forever in heaven — not for a day, a month or a year, but forever with Me in heaven.

I am the true Bread come down from heaven. He who eats My Flesh will have life forever. For the drink I give you is My Blood and food you eat is My Body. Who would lay down his life for a friend? I did, for you. I love you this much, child. Forget about those who reject you. You have My life that I gave you and I give you life eternal.

I am the One true God. I am the Light of life. He who abides in Me will have life eternal, for the drink I give is My Blood and the food I give is My Body. Drink and eat and have everlasting life.

My child, that is all you need to know. Love one another and be good that you may enter into My kingdom.

I am the true vine,
and my Father is the vinedresser.
Every branch in me that bears no fruit
he cuts away,
and every branch that does bear fruit
     he prunes
to make it bear even more.
You are clean already,
by means of the word
     that I have spoken to you.
Remain in me, as I in you.
As a branch cannot bear fruit all by itself,
unless it remains part of the vine,
neither can you unless you remain in me.
I am the vine,
you are the branches.
Whoever remains in me, with me in him,
bears fruit in plenty;
for cut off from me you can do nothing.
Anyone who does not remain in me
is thrown away like a branch
—and withers;
these branches are collected
     and thrown on the fire
and are burnt.
If you remain in me
and my words remain in you,
you may ask for whatever you please
and you will get it.
It is to the glory of my Father
      that you should bear much fruit
and be my disciples.

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.

     We pray the Our Father at Mass – We focus on our
Heavenly Father and His Plan for us – We want unity as
children of God

     In spreading these homilies and our writings on the
Eucharist – we want men to be fed more and more with the
Bread of Life – We want to live in the truth – We want to
live in greater faith, hope and love – To live in unity –

     To date – 17 years – we have circulated 15,000,000
Priestly Newsletters loose and in books from Fr. Carter and
other priests.

     We have begun prayer chapters in 8 languages with the
Church's Imprimatur, around the world, so there is a
network of prayer out there praying for our priests, the
Church and the world –

     If we have this devotion to the Sacred Heart and
Immaculate Heart, we are helping ourselves to be more
united in the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary as
Mary asked for at Fatima –

     When we die there will be a network of prayer around
the world praying for our beloved priests and the Church –

     This to me is the greatest gift I can give to my children
and grandchildren in helping more and more our holy
priests – We hope people love God and others as they dwell
in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

     We pray people love the Church more and more and
thank God for this precious gift of the Church and the
priest and the Word – We pray people live as strong
members of the mystical body of Christ –

     The world is in so much need of prayer and that deep
relationship with Mary, Mother of the Church – The Holy
Spirit works in that Spousal union with Mary helping us to
do God's will –

     Thank you for your willingness to answer God's call in
focusing on the Word and praying for the priests, the
Church and the world with us –

     May God bless you in your mission of loving and serving
God and helping to build the Kingdom of God.

May the Light of Christ shine on the earth as we live
more holy lives in Him and in His Word –

     We should respond enthusiastically to Christ's call to
help build up the Kingdom of truth and love, of justice and
that the peace of Christ is spread on this earth.

John 15: 5-6

I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me,
with me in him, bears fruit in plenty; for cut off from me you can
do nothing. Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away
like a branch –and withers; these branches are collected and
thrown on the fire and are burnt.
 

We get our life from Jesus – He is the vine – we are the

branches – A branch cannot bear grapes if it is disconnected

from the vine – We cannot do anything without Him

                R. Mary suffered so

Mary's Message
from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary:  I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

end of Mary's Message

 

December 19, 1996 

Mary: My dear children, I give to you, my Son, Jesus, born in a stable in Bethlehem on Christmas morn. He is the Almighty God, the Light of the World.

    I appear to you, my children, on a (former) bank in Florida. You have made money your god! Do you know how cold are your hearts? You turn away from my Son, Jesus, for your money. Your money is your god.

    I am Mary, your Mother. I do not appear as I once appeared to you. I am asking you today to circulate my message given on a tape on the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12, 1996. Please circulate this tape now. Give it to as many people as you can. I am Mary, your Mother. Please circulate my Rosary Book.

Numbers 6: 22-27

Yahweh spoke to Moses and said, 'Speak to Aaron and his sons and say:

    "This is how you must bless the Israelites. You will say:

May Yahweh bless you and keep you.
May Yahweh let his face shine on you
    and be gracious to you.
May Yahweh show you his face
    and bring you peace."

This is how they must call down my name on the Israelites, and then I shall bless them.'

   

James 4: 13-15

Well now, you who say, 'Today or tomorrow, we are off to this or that town; we are going to spend a year there, trading, and make some money.' You never know what will happen tomorrow: you are no more than a mist that appears for a little while and then disappears. Instead of this, you should say, 'If it is the Lord's will, we shall still be alive to do this or that.'

   

                Lord give success to the
                    work of our hands

 

Psalm 90: 2-6, 12-16

Before the mountains were born,
before the earth and the world came to birth,
from eternity to eternity you are God.

        You bring human beings to the dust,
        by saying, ‘Return, children of Adam.’
        A thousand years are to you
        like a yesterday which has passed,
        like a watch of the night.

        You flood them with sleep
        —in the morning they will be like growing grass:
        in the morning it is blossoming and growing,
        by evening it is withered and dry.

        Teach us to count up the days that are ours,
         and we shall come to the heart of wisdom.
         Come back, Yahweh! How long must we wait?
         Take pity on your servants.

         Each morning fill us with your faithful love,
         we shall sing and be happy all our days;
         let our joy be as long as the time that you afflicted us,
         the years when we experienced disaster.

        Show your servants the deeds you do,
        let their children enjoy your splendour!

 

1 Chronicles 29: 10-11

Hence, in the presence of the whole assembly David blessed Yahweh. David said: 
    ‘May you be blessed, Yahweh, God of Israel our ancestor, for ever and for ever!

Yours, Yahweh, is the greatness, the power, the splendour, length of days and glory, everything in heaven and on earth is yours. Yours is the sovereignty, Yahweh; you are exalted, supreme over all.

 

Matthew 6: 31-34

So do not worry; do not say, "What are we to eat? What are we to drink? What are we to wear?" It is the gentiles who set their hearts on all these things. Your heavenly Father knows you need them all. Set your hearts on his kingdom first, and on God’s saving justice, and all these other things will be given you as well. So do not worry about tomorrow: tomorrow will take care of itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.’

1 Corinthians 6: 13-15, 17-20

Foods are for the stomach, and the stomach is for foods; and God will destroy them both. But the body is not for sexual immorality; it is for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body. God raised up the Lord and he will raise us up too by his power. Do you not realise that your bodies are members of Christ’s body; do you think one can take parts of Christ’s body and join them to the body of a prostitute? Out of the question!

But anyone who attaches himself to the Lord is one spirit with him.

    Keep away from sexual immorality. All other sins that people may commit are done outside the body; but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Do you not realise that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you and whom you received from God? You are not your own property, then; you have been bought at a price. So use your body for the glory of God.

   

                R. God gave Jacob a dream 

Genesis 28: 10-22

Jacob left Beersheba and set out for Haran. When he had reached a certain place, he stopped there for the night, since the sun had set. Taking one of the stones of that place, he made it his pillow and lay down where he was. He had a dream: there was a ladder, planted on the ground with its top reaching to heaven; and God's angels were going up and down on it. And there was Yahweh, standing beside him and saying, ‘I, Yahweh, am the God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac. The ground on which you are lying I shall give to you and your descendants. Your descendants will be as plentiful as the dust on the ground; you will spread out to west and east, to north and south, and all clans on earth will bless themselves by you and your descendants. Be sure, I am with you; I shall keep you safe wherever you go, and bring you back to this country, for I shall never desert you until I have done what I have promised you.’  Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, 'Truly, Yahweh is in this place and I did not know!' He was afraid and said, 'How awe-inspiring this place is! This is nothing less than the abode of God, and this is the gate of heaven!' Early next morning, Jacob took the stone he had used for his pillow, and set it up as a pillar, pouring oil over the top of it. He named the place Bethel, but before that the town had been called Luz.

    Jacob then made this vow, 'If God remains with me and keeps me safe on this journey I am making, if he gives me food to eat and clothes to wear, and if I come home safe to my father's home, then Yahweh shall be my God. This stone I have set up as a pillar is to be a house of God, and I shall faithfully pay you a tenth part of everything you give me.'

   

                R. Jesus heals —

 

Matthew 9: 18-26

While he was speaking to them, suddenly one of the officials came up, who bowed low in front of him and said, 'My daughter has just died, but come and lay your hand on her and her life will be saved.' Jesus rose and, with his disciples, followed him.

    Then suddenly from behind him came a woman, who had been suffering from a haemorrhage for twelve years, and she touched the fringe of his cloak, for she was thinking, 'If only I can touch his cloak I shall be saved.' Jesus turned round and saw her; and he said to her, 'Courage, my daughter, your faith has saved you.' And from that moment the woman was saved.

    When Jesus reached the official's house and saw the flute-players, with the crowd making a commotion, he said, ‘Get out of here; the little girl is not dead; she is asleep.’ And they ridiculed him. But when the people had been turned out he went inside and took her by the hand; and she stood up. And the news of this spread all round the countryside.

       

2 Timothy 1: 10

but it has been revealed only by the appearing of our Saviour Christ Jesus. He has abolished death, and he has brought to light immortality and life through the gospel,


 


 

Genesis 32: 23-33

That same night he got up and, taking his two wives, his two slave-girls and his eleven children, crossed the ford of the Jabbok. After he had taken them across the stream, he sent all his possessions over too. And Jacob was left alone.

    Then someone wrestled with him until daybreak who, seeing that he could not master him, struck him on the hip socket, and Jacob's hip was dislocated as he wrestled with him. He said, "Let me go, for day is breaking." Jacob replied, "I will not let you go unless you bless me." The other said, "What is your name?" "Jacob," he replied. He said, "No longer are you to be called Jacob,  but Israel since you have shown your strength against God and men and have prevailed." Then Jacob asked, "Please tell me your name." He replied, "Why do you ask my name?" With that, he blessed him there.

    Jacob named the place Peniel, "Because I have seen God face to face," he said, "and have survived." The sun rose as he passed Peniel, limping from his hip. That is why to this day the Israelites do not eat the thigh sinew which is at the hip socket: because he had struck Jacob at the hip socket on the thigh sinew.

  

Matthew 9: 32-38

They had only just left when suddenly a man was brought to him, a dumb demoniac. And when the devil was driven out, the dumb man spoke and the people were amazed and said, ‘Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel.’ But the Pharisees said, ‘It is through the prince of devils that he drives out devils.’

Jesus made a tour through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and curing all kinds of disease and all kinds of illness. 

    And when he saw the crowds he felt sorry for them because they were harassed and dejected, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is rich but the labourers are few, so ask the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers to his harvest.’

   

                R. Jesus heals
 


                We remember how Joseph's
                brothers treated him —

                Joseph gives grain to those
                    suffering from the famine —

                Joseph - imprisons his brothers —
                    then gives them food —

 

Psalm 33: 2-3, 10-11, 18-19

Give thanks to Yahweh on the lyre, 
play for him on the ten–stringed lyre. 
Sing to him a new song, 
make sweet music for your cry of victory.

Yahweh thwarts the plans of nations,
frustrates the counsels of peoples;
but Yahweh's own plan stands firm for ever,
his heart's counsel from age to age.

But see how Yahweh watches over those who fear him, 
those who rely on his faithful love,
 
to rescue them from death 
and keep them alive in famine. 

   

                R. The gifts Jesus gave us!!

                The Church is such a gift —

                We were told by Jesus
                    through Fr. Carter

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

From the Spirituality Handbook

The Mass and the Sacraments (excerpt)

Besides saying the above prayer, there are other acts of Eucharistic reparation we can make. One of these is to be sure we make adequate thanksgiving after Mass. One of the intentions we should have at this time is to help make reparation for the lack of proper thanksgiving on the part of many. Pope Pius XII speaks about the duty of spending the proper time in thanksgiving:

"When at Mass, which is subject to special rules of the liturgy, is over, the person who has received Holy Communion is not thereby freed from his duty of thanksgiving; rather, it is most becoming that, when the Mass is finished, the person who has received the Eucharist should recollect himself and, in intimate union with the Divine Master, hold loving and fruitful converse with Him. Hence they have departed from the straight way of truth who, adhering to the letter rather than the sense, assert and teach that, when Mass has ended, no such thanksgiving should be added, not only because the Mass is itself a thanksgiving, but also because this pertains to a private and personal act of piety and not to the good of the community." (5)

Excerpt from the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Booklet

March 8, 1996

Many Graces Will Be Granted

Jesus: My beloved Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, I have called you to a special apostleship, My beloved ones. I am crying out to you from My Eucharistic Heart to pray as you have never prayed before. The power, My dear chosen ones, is in the Eucharist. Your world is in a very serious state. The Church, the pope, the bishops, the priests, the Sisters and Brothers are all in need of tremendous prayer power.

You have been called to the quiet of the tabernacle to take your prayer petitions to My Eucharistic Heart. The renewal of the Church and the world is at hand. From the prayers you pray here, many graces will be granted.

I am calling all in this Movement as well as all others in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to consecrate their hearts to My Heart and the heart of My Mother. All through the day I am calling you, priests, sisters and brothers in the religious life, laity, including children, to give your hearts to Me and to My beloved Mother. As you dwell in Our Hearts you will be one with each other.

Come to Me with your petitions. I am truly present in the tabernacle, no less present than the day I walked the earth. I wait for you to come and to pray for your Church and your world. Many graces will be given there for the priesthood and those in the religious life. I have chosen each priest and sister and brother in the religious life to help spread My love to this world. The highest calling is to be called to the priesthood. The calling I give to My beloved priests, sisters and brothers is a special spousalship to Me. How My Heart is wounded by the priests and sisters and brothers in the religious life who have turned worldly. I, the almighty God, call them to such a deep intimate love affair with Me and they go to the world for their love.

When the religious are fixed in My Heart many will be fed by My burning love.

The world is in a state of urgency. The Church in part has become worldly. The medicine for the hurting world is My burning love. Nothing, nothing will feed the starved soul but the love of God. I am calling you to pray for My holy priests, to pray that all priests come to a state of deep holiness.

I have called you as part of the Shepherds of Christ Movement to join in prayer before Me and to beg for graces for your Church and your world.

The renewal of My Church and My world will be helped greatly through many giving themselves to this movement.

At Fatima My Mother said that, until a sufficient number of faithful are consecrating their hearts to My Heart and the heart of My Mother, there will not be peace in this world.

In the Shepherds of Christ Movement including the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Movement, I am reaching the priests, sisters and brothers in the religious life, laity, including the children - with this Consecration.

As you dwell in Our hearts you are one with us. As you give yourselves to our Hearts, you are one in our Hearts. These movements will prosper for all are joined in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. You will proceed ahead in one heart and one mind. You will be more joined as a true family, brothers and sisters, living according to the will of your heavenly Father and dwelling in the heart of your heavenly Mother.

Oh, beloved children, in these movements you have been hand-picked and chosen for this mission by Me. I am giving to you such graces to unite more and more deeply to My Heart. You will be one with each other and one with God. As you dwell in My Mother's heart and My Heart, you unite with the Father in the Holy Spirit.

You are especially chosen, my apostles, to help carry My love to this world. As you join in this oneness with Me, I live in you and you in Me and I am alive in this world in a special way through this union.

I have called you to this apostleship, I am guarding your every breath, I am giving you abundant graces to help carry out the plan of the Father. "Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest." (Matt. 11:28)1

Bring the cares of the Church and the world to Me. I am waiting to give you all you need. I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. I live this day in the world. I am truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. Come to Me and I will live in you.

I love you, I love you, I love you. I am your beloved Savior, Jesus.

                R. We pray to celebrate our independence —

                Turn from our violent ways —
                Heal our injustice God —

                We want justice and freedom
                    for all —

                Help us God to be a nation
                    obedient to You — 
   

Deuteronomy 28:11-12

Yahweh will make you abound in possessions: in the offspring of your body, in the yield of your cattle and in the yield of your soil, in the country which he swore to your ancestors that he would give you. For you Yahweh will open his treasury of rain, the heavens, to give your country its rain at the right time, and to bless all your labours. You will make many nations your subjects, yet you will be subject to none.

   

                R. Last instruction to God's
                    people as people were
                    about to go to the
                    Promised Land after
                    their slavery —

                He had good instructions
                    for them over 3000 years ago —

                Good instructions for us —

   

Deuteronomy 8: 7-18

‘But Yahweh your God is bringing you into a fine country, a land of streams and springs, of waters that well up from the deep in valleys and hills, a land of wheat and barley, of vines, of figs, of pomegranates, a land of olives, of oil, of honey, a land where you will eat bread without stint, where you will want nothing, a land where the stones are iron and where the hills may be quarried for copper. You will eat and have all you want and you will bless Yahweh your God in the fine country which he has given you. 

    ‘Be careful not to forget Yahweh your God, by neglecting his commandments, customs and laws which I am laying down for you today. When you have eaten all you want, when you have built fine houses to live in, when you have seen your flocks and herds increase, your silver and gold abound and all your possessions grow great, do not become proud of heart. Do not then forget Yahweh your God who brought you out of Egypt, out of the place of slave–labour, who guided you through this vast and dreadful desert, a land of fiery snakes, scorpions, thirst; who in this waterless place brought you water out of the flinty rock; who in this desert fed you with manna unknown to your ancestors, to humble you and test you and so make your future the happier. 

    ‘Beware of thinking to yourself, "My own strength and the might of my own hand have given me the power to act like this." Remember Yahweh your God; he was the one who gave you the strength to act effectively like this, thus keeping then, as today, the covenant which he swore to your ancestors.

 

Hebrews 13: 1-3, 14-16

Continue to love each other like brothers, and remember always to welcome strangers, for by doing this, some people have entertained angels without knowing it. Keep in mind those who are in prison, as though you were in prison with them; and those who are being badly treated, since you too are in the body.

There is no permanent city for us here; we are looking for the one which is yet to be. Through him, let us offer God an unending sacrifice of praise, the fruit of the lips of those who acknowledge his name. Keep doing good works and sharing your resources, for these are the kinds of sacrifice that please God.

 

John 14: 23-29

Jesus replied:

Anyone who loves me will keep my word,
and my Father will love him, 
and we shall come to him
and make a home in him.
Anyone who does not love me
    does not keep my words.
And the word that you hear
     is not my own:
it is the word of the Father who sent me.
I have said these things to you
while still with you;
but the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit,
whom the Father will send in my name,
will teach you everything
and remind you of all I have said to you.
Peace I bequeath to you, 
my own peace I give you, 
a peace which the world cannot give, 
    this is my gift to you. 
Do not let your hearts be troubled 
    or afraid. 
You heard me say: 
I am going away and shall return. 
If you loved me you would be glad 
    that I am going to the Father, 
for the Father is greater than I. 
I have told you this now, 
    before it happens, 
so that when it does happen 
    you may believe. 

         

                R. 235 years ago we declared our
                    independence —

                In 1740 the citizens were faithful
                    to the King of England

                In 1750 — they were anxious

                In 1760 open rebellion

                July 4, 1776

                    The Declaration of Independence —
                    for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness —

                The only one who signed the
                    document on
                    July 4th was John Hancock
  


                On July 19th it was accepted
 


                We must hang together or most
                    assuredly we will hang
                    separately

                1789 — Colonies pulled
                    together under one government —
                    they were afraid —
                    Battled each other intellectually —

                The concept — we all have to
                    work together —

                Because of Original sin we want
                    our own way — selfishness —
                    instead of unity — we need
                    to work as one —
                    It is a process —
                    We still are in a process to
                    keep our freedom —

                We have to keep our faith strong —

                They believed and were committed
                    to God — a lot of
                    their ideas and strength
                    came from their faith —

                July 5, 1776 John Adams wrote to his
                    wife the day after
                    Declaration of Independence was signed

                Fr. Joe read this —

                They all agreed —

                John Adams called it a day of deliverance —
                    unity in Almighty God —

                It will take toil, and blood
                    to defend these states, he said.

                God bless what we have

                R. We pray for all our leaders to
                    follow the pledge —
                    of these men who fought
                    for our freedom —

                We pray for our individual
                    needs —

                Sing: My Country Tis of Thee - G 889

                        America - G890

                        All That We Have

                        Battle Hymn of the Republic

                        Let There Be Peace on Earth

 

                R. The Blood of Jesus, the Blood He
                    shed for our sins —

 

Through Him, With Him, In Him

   

 

 

The Our Father

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

 


 

Lamb of God

Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace.

 


 

                God Bless America

                From Moses
                    to the Founding Fathers
                    to the freedom today

Guiding Light homily series - Steadfast to the Son - Cycle A — The sunflower is a great example of how we should be steadfastly guided by light. What a powerful thought that this exceptional plant is not stuck in one pose day in and day out, yet adaptable and magnetized to the sun. We feel the same about our Son. Our heads turns to face Christ as each day presents its challenges to find light. We join together like plants in a field and soak up the Son through the pulpit. We are a warm circle of strength using the wind of our breath to carry our priests' words, Christ's words, to new rich soil. $15
Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word - Cycle B — At times we may feel that our path to Christ is a bit "out of focus". Like the disciples in the Book of Mark, this ordinary life clouds our vision of Christ's Divinity. We may doubt the practicality or possibility of applying His teachings and example to our modern life. Cycle B's homilies are a "guiding light" to help us realize Jesus' Messianic greatness and His promise of better things to come. $15
Guiding Light - Feed My Soul - Cycle C — In a world rapidly advancing and encouraging personal gain, we are faced with modern problems. There is a challenge to find time in our busy schedules for Sunday Mass or a family meal. We are able to research, shop, bank and even work without hearing one human voice. It is no wonder that we may often feel disconnected and famished at our week's end. In Fr. Joe's third book of homilies from Cycle C, we are reminded of the charity that Christ intended us to show each other. We have a calling to turn the other cheek and be the Good Samaritan to others. We are rewarded with the Father's kingdom and love when we are not worthy. We are not left alone or hungry. $15

Guiding Light - The Word Alive in Our Hearts. - Cycle A (partial) — Homilies by the Reverend Joe Robinson given at St. Boniface Church in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is a tremendous honor Fr. Joe has allowed us to share these great gifts with you – for greater holiness and knowing more and more about God. $10

Priestly Newsletter - 2000 #1 - CD. - Christ is Our Strength - Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. It is so beautiful. "This brief passage contains one of the greatest lessons of the spiritual life. As we progress along our spiritual journey, we become increasingly aware of how weak we are in our-selves, but how strong we are in Christ. To experience our weakness involves suffering. The degree and kind of suffering can vary. The suffering can include the experience of the classical dark night of the spirit as described by St. John of the Cross. One of the main purposes of the dark night is to make a person keenly aware of his or her helplessness without God." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10
Priestly Newsletter - 2000 #2 - CD. - Suffering: A Source of Life - Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. Fr. Carter knew suffering that year. His voice is so powerful as he read each Newsletter from his heart and soul. "Every man has his own share in the redemption. Each one is also called to share in that suffering through which the redemption was accomplished. He is called to share in that suffering through which all human suffering has also been redeemed. In bringing about the redemption through suffering, Christ has also raised human suffering to the level of the redemption. Thus each man in his suffering can also become a sharer in the redemptive suffering of Christ..." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10
