Jesus gave me a message:
I want Blue Book 10 published and the
Parents and Children's Rosary Book reprinted.

The Blue Book 10 and the
Parents and Children's Book

Transcribed Live from a Tape

Songs

R. So Our Lord asked us to help make reparation, to sing the songs that He wants us to sing. Our time here is really short and yet we know that we don't do everything perfect and so we have a lot of work to do. But He loves us so much, and when you love somebody, you just want to keep helping them and be close to them and want them to say yes and be close to you too.

Song: You'll Never Walk Alone

R. When you walk through a storm hold your head up high. What happens if you are walking through a storm and it's really, really, really a bad storm, and it's dark at night, and you bury your head in your chest and a big car goes by – what happens? So if you have a problem you want to see where you go, don't you? If you got a problem you should lift your head up and try to work the problem out, but what satan does is, he tries to come through, and he tries to make you mad, or he tries to make you frustrated, or he tries to make you blinded through jealousy or anger, or envy, all the other things, thinking you are not enough, right? God created us and He has a special plan for us. So if we have a problem why would we bury our heads in our chest, isn't that kind of stupid. We should raise our head up high to see where we are going.

Song: You'll Never Walk Alone

R. Wouldn't that be right? If we could just trust in God the whole time and see that lighted tunnel. So that even though we get older, even though we end up having problems, and we wrote the story of our lives, we would go back and could see all the problems that we really went through and guess what, we came through them didn't we? So we see the lighted tunnel because we always know that God is there and we can trust in Him and we know that this is part of our trial here. This is part of what He is putting us through, or allowing us to suffer, either to die to something and rise to be more likened to Him, or He may be putting us through it, because we made our own mess. Whatever the case is, we keep our eyes on Him, that means keeping your head up, and keeping your eyes on Jesus, not being afraid of the dark, but realizing that in the tunnel it's always lighted, because God is always there and we can trust Him, even though we don't know what tomorrow will bring, we can still trust Him. That's what hope is all about, at the end of the storm is a golden sky. Wow!

Song: You'll Never Walk Alone

R. As long as we go through life and think we know it all, guess what? We are not going to learn nothing, right? Any of us think we know it all? We walk through life and we know that we are suppose to keep our focus 'out' and we are going to be learning some stuff and we are ready to hear, ready to listen. Are we ready to join our brothers, and to be all that God wants us to be in the building of His Kingdom.

Song: What the World Needs Now is Love

Excerpts from August 19, 1996 Rosary from Blue Book 12

Jesus: I am with you in a special way. This is the 19th of August, 1996. On August 19th, 1917, My Mother appeared to the children at Fatima. I am glad that you are here, that you have come to venerate Our Hearts. It is through Our Hearts and through you that many hearts will turn their hearts to the love of Our Hearts. Do not underestimate the importance of this meeting here. Each of you were uniquely selected by Me to participate in this plan of the Father to help spread the love of Our Hearts throughout this world. Come to My Heart now. Come into My Heart and feel the warmth in My Heart, for this period in time will be a time of refuge for you, for you will be comforted by My love and the love of My Mother. I am Jesus, how I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you.

R. For Faith, Hope and Love

R. Let us focus on the gentle and tender heart of the Virgin Mary. Let us think of how pure and how loving is her heart. This young, young girl and an angel comes and appears to her and asks her to be the Mother of God.  end of excerpts

R. For Hope

July 3, 2013 Rosary continues

R. For what will it be for any of us if we did not have that focus on knowing that, if we serve God, that we will receive a reward for what we do. There are many people in the world today, that are not focused on God, that are not focused on Him at all, that do not think about Him and everything that they do, that have suffered, so many things because they have put God out of their life. One of the saddest things was continually over the 19 years that Mary appeared to me, and it will be 19 years July 5th, 2013, that she appeared - one of the saddest things, is to see the Blessed Mother and to hear her say that souls are dropping into hell like rain.

R. For Hope

Excerpt from August 19, 1996 Rosary from Blue Book 12

R. Oh Mary Immaculate, Mary most pure, Mary most holy, Mary our Heavenly Mother.

July 3, 2013 Rosary continues

R. We come to you and we know always that you did the Father's will, that you were the servant of the Father, that you served Him, that you lived to serve Jesus, that you raised Him and you loved Him. You were the perfect handmaid of the Lord.

Excerpt from August 19, 1996 Rosary from Blue Book 12

R. We thank you and we love you, for giving us this rosary. Help us to model our hearts after Your heart. Help us to be closer to you and closer to your Son in this rosary. Come Holy Spirit and fill our hearts with the fire of Your love.   end of excerpt

R. For Hope

July 3, 2013 Rosary continues

And He (Jesus) says: I call you to be in the right place at the right time, to do what it is that I ask you to do, to give your heart as you should give your heart, to be focused on what is going on now, these prayers that I have asked for, for reparation, the prayers that are so deserving for all of the years that you were given this building, for all the times when the 5ths and the 17ths and the others meetings in which I called were called to focus on the prayers, to do as I ask you to do, to say 'yes' as Mary said 'yes'. Her whole life giving herself as the perfect handmaid of the Lord, to be attentive to what is asked, and to answer that call, to be a handmaid, the servant of the Lord, to love as Mary loved, to love with her pure and Immaculate Heart, to follow.

Excerpt from August 19, 1996 Rosary from Blue Book 12

R. Who are we that God has given to us these great gifts of His love, that He outpours to us His abundant grace, that He gives to us this grace that we may unite more and more closer to the heart of Mary and the Heart of Jesus.   end of excerpt

July 3, 2013 Rosary continues

Jesus: Put yourself in the place that I want you to be in now, the place of serving God, of loving God, the place of examining those special places that you need to examine, where you did not follow, where when the prayer service was called, where was your focus? For I ask you to see through My eyes, to do the will of the Father, to be servants and handmaids of the Lord, to be obedient, to listen for what God is asking you to do. For this is a retreat that I have called because of the 15 years that you have been allowed to be in this building as a gift of God the Father, that you were called to serve, to love, to give, to follow, as Mary followed, as Mary did the will of the Father, as Jesus did the will of the Father. When great gifts are given, much is expected, but you must abandoned yourself to your own wills and to be sensitive to what God is calling you to do, now; as Mary appears, now; as I appear, now; as I lead you in this prayer service and ask you to surrender, to not focus on yourselves, but to focus on God in eternity. And the souls that are out there right now on the edge of death. You can see some souls that could go to hell for all eternity. How many times your Heavenly Mother has appeared over and over and over again, speaking of the souls at the edge of death. Do you hear? Do you know why Mary appeared here? To be docile, to listen, to circulate the messages I have given, to not try to control things, to listen – for those plans are those plans of human minds, wounded in a tainted human nature. This is a heavenly plan to help in the renewal of the Church and the world. It is where you follow Me, your Master, your God, your all.

Excerpt from August 19, 1996 Rosary from Blue Book 12

R. Who are we that God has given to us these great gifts of His love, that He outpours to us His abundant grace, that He gives to us this grace that we may unite more and more closely to the heart of Mary and to the Heart of Jesus. We do not know why we have been chosen, why we have been called, but we have been called. We have been called by God, and He called the light and there was light. For He calls and they answer; call and response, following, knowing He is the Master and who is the servant. And she said: Be it done unto me according to thy word.  end of excerpt

The Annunciation

1. R. To be all that God wants us to be, for out of all the possible people that God could have created, He picked us, He chose us. He gave us the talents to be able to be the person that He wants us to be. We see that the Father chose Mary from all women to be the Mother of God. We see how special Mary is in the eyes of the Father. Do we not see how special we are in the eyes of God? That He has delivered to us these messages and given to us a special calling, that He has chosen us, that He wants us to be close in our hearts to Him, that He is giving to us this special grace because of His immense love for us. Do we not see that He gave great gifts to the saints, but that He is giving such grace to us. Let us help make reparation for all the times that we followed our own agenda, when God called us to prayer meetings, to be holy in prayer, to focus on the work at hand, the prayers devoted to the priest, and to the Church and to the world, the prayers pleading and begging for grace, of knowing that this is real, that Mary, the Mother of God, really did appear, and that these are the words that Mary has spoken over and over again about the souls at the edge of death, about souls that are going into hell, that she is crying out, our Heavenly Mother. But her call falls on deaf ears, so many times, because we fail to really listen and see what God is calling us to hear. Do we not see that He gave great gifts to the saints, but that He is giving such grace to us, that He is communicating to us, that God is teaching us in this rosary, to know Him and to love Him more, great gifts that even the greatest saints did not know. He has called us, we are special to Him. Mary was so special to the Father, that He chose Mary, conceived without sin. He is giving to us a grace, now, because He loves us, because we are special to Him. We are called and we are chosen to pray here as He wants us to pray, to focus on Him, to be obedient, to not let anything that the evil one wants to parade before us, to stop what the will of God is for us, and has been made very clear for weeks.

2. R. And so we see that Jesus came, the Divine Almighty God. He came in the womb of the Virgin Mary. He came as a little baby. He came because He loves us.

Excerpt from August 19, 1996 Rosary from Blue Book 12

3. Jesus: You have been called and you have been chosen by Me, My dear ones, and I will give to you this special grace. Open your hearts and let Me comfort you this night. Let Me fill you with My love. I am Jesus. I am here and I want to love you in a special way.    end of excerpt

July 3, 2013 Rosary continues

R. Oh Blessed Heart of Jesus, I pray for healing in body, mind and soul and for all of us, that we will be docile, that we will be servants, that we will learn to obey as You have asked us to obey, to follow the will of the Father in peace and love and joy. Do not be ready to focus on ourselves, but to listen to You, to let You dictate what You want us to do and to be happy to comply to the will of God in love.

Excerpts from August 19, 1996 Rosary from Blue Book 12

4. Jesus: My dear ones, the times ahead will be hard and will be dark, You must listen to these to words that I speak to you. You must come and dwell in Our Hearts, for it is there that you will find refuge from the cold and dark world. I am giving to you this great grace that you will be joined in My Heart. This is My little army that I am sending into the world. Look around you at one another. I have joined you in one mind and one heart in a special way.

5. Jesus: And the hearts will shine across the land as you give your heart to Our Hearts. You are My stars that go by in the darkness this day, and it is through you that My light will shine to all those you touch. Give Me your heart. I am waiting for you, and I will fill you with the brightest light, and you will radiate against the darkened sky and shine as the brightest lights in the night. I am Jesus. I am all powerful and almighty. You, My dear ones, will be molded into My image and likeness, and the world will know My life and My love through you. I am alive. I am alive. I am alive, and I live within your heart. My way is peace, and My way is love. You must come and dwell in My Heart. I want you to love Me, My dear ones, all through the day to tell Me of your love, to share with Me all your thoughts that I may be one in you, that I may live in you, that I may operate through you, that I may touch others. As you go about this world, I will touch My beloved souls, and this world will be lighted with My love.

6. Jesus: Do you know each other, My beloved ones? Do you know that I live in you and in your brother? I am calling you to love each other with such love, to join in one mind and one heart, to be kind and loving to one another, for the job will be accomplished. The Father's plan will unfold. Your job, My dear ones, is to love, not to be busy and to run around, but to love, to love first, to love God first, and to love one another. I will work through you, and the work will be accomplished in love - love, love, love. I call you to love, to quiet your heart at this moment for you are anxious and afraid, but I call you to quiet your heart and to turn your heart to thoughts of love, to release all anxiety that you feel at this moment in your heart, to be lifted high in this hot air balloon, to let go of all of the cares in your heart and in your mind, to feel peace wrap you securely in it's embrace, to feel love in your heart, to know this peace. There is no fear. There is peace and love in God. I am Jesus. It is My peace I give to you. I am guarding you, and I am watching you at every moment. Release and surrender to My loving care.

7. Jesus: My way is love, love of God, and love of one another. You are busy in your mind for many things, but I am calling you to love, love, love, love. Release your minds and let Me carry the burden. I will walk beside you and guard your every move.

Jesus: It is joy, My beloved ones, that I ask you to carry in your hearts, joy, peace, and love. Let go of the burdens that you hold in your heart, for My way is love and this is My job. It will be accomplished. You must surrender and let Me work in you. Do not busy yourselves with the papers and the work. Surrender and go to Me, and I will carry the load. Your job is to love.

8. Jesus: I am alive. I am alive. I am alive, and I live in the hearts of men. Open your heart that I may fill you with My life, that you will be the reflection of this life in the world this day. Surrender. Let go of all of those things that hold you bound, and come to Me as the little, dependent child of your Father.

9. Jesus: I am with you. I am not far away, but I am close to you. Do you feel Me this close to you? Surrender and let Me touch your heart. Let Me fill you with My love.

10. Jesus: My beloved ones, I come to you and I ask you for your love. I want you to love Me with gentle, tender love. I came into this world a little baby. I was laid in a manger, a little, little, tiny baby. Will you love Me? Will you give Me your love, for I am waiting for this love from you? I am Jesus. I am alive, and I am with you. Come, My dear ones. Come into My Heart and tell Me of your love.

 

Jesus: You do not understand the great mission that I have called you to, My beloved ones. You must come to Me. You must beg for purity in your heart for you will be the leaders that will carry this love into this world. You underestimate the importance of this mission to this world and to My Church. You must be born in your heart to a heart that is gentle and loving and kind.

 

The Visitation

1. Jesus: My dear, sweet ones, satan is pressing down on My beloved apostles, for he aims to stop you. You will carry the messages of My love to this world. You must pray for strength. You must pray to St. Michael to help you to battle against these forces that are coming against you. I am Jesus. I am protecting you and guarding you. I am allowing you to be tested and to fall that you will know how dependent you are on Me.

2. Jesus: You must not waver. You must not give in. You must be strong. You must come to Me. You must pray the rosary all through the day, for the rosary will give you strength against the evil one. I am Jesus. I am guarding you, and I love you.

3. Jesus: You are My little army that I have called here. I have formed you. I have guarded you, and I have given to you this special grace to come to Our Hearts. As you dwell in Our Hearts, you will be saturated with Our love and you will be the reflection of this light in the darkness.

4. Jesus: You do not comprehend the immensity of this mission to which I have called you, My beloved ones. I am begging you to pray, pray fervently that you will know the importance of this mission. You have been called, and you have answered this call. Listen to Me for I speak to you. This is an urgent message that you come to Me and give yourselves to Me, and you will be My army marching with hearts of love in the darkened night.     end of excerpts

Excerpts from August 12, 1996 from Blue Book 12

5. R. I saw myself pleading to my Mother, pleading and pleading to help me. She was in the Sorrowful Mother statue above me. I was below. I was a little child in my Mother's house. I visited her (and she appeared all night August 12, 1996.) I pleaded. My Mother has appeared to me over and over again, to comfort me and teach me His way. I was looking up and I was begging her to help me. She softly told me I must go to her heart, to her spiritual womb - I would be safe there. I see how the Incarnation goes on in us.

6. R. I have been going through the greatest struggles ever. I look up to Mary as a little child and I see. I am outside, she is above me. I am pleading. She says, "come to my heart." The last struggles I have gone through have been so intense. I could only find peace seeing myself as the embryo in her womb, all curled up and protected. Embryos in the womb of their mother have no cares, no concerns, no worries. This is how Jesus wants us to be. In heaven there are no worries, all our anxieties are lifted. This is how it is for an embryo. They have no cares no fears, they are supplied their life through their mother. The life flows from God into the womb of the mother. It is not hard, then, to understand how Mary, our spiritual mother, is the Mediatrix of all graces. Mary is bringing us forth more and more in our spiritual womb, her Immaculate Heart in the Holy Spirit. Mary is bringing us forth in the image and likeness of God. Mary is bringing forth the Church in the Holy Spirit, more and more in the image and likeness of Jesus. Mary is Mother of the Church.

The Church, too, is in the state of becoming. We see Mary, Mother the Church. We see the Holy Spirit working in this oneness with Mary, helping the Church to be more and more holy, more and more as God wants it to be.

end of excerpt

7. Excerpts from July 2, 1996 Rosary from Blue Book 12

R. This is a rosary about the love of Jesus and Mary for each of us. This rosary comes from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary to our heart. We must open our heart and let the love of Jesus and Mary flow into our heart, that we will receive the messages and the love that They wish to give to us in this rosary. The rosary is the story of Their love, for we meditate on Their lives, the lives of Jesus and Mary, love given to us. God so loved this world that He sent His only begotten Son into this world that man could be saved and could be with Him forever and ever in heaven.

Be there with Mary, a young woman in a room. And the angel appeared to Mary and she was afraid, and the angel says to Mary, ‘Mary, do not be afraid; you have won God’s favour. Look! You are to conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you must name him Jesus.' (Luke 1: 31)Think of how you would feel, loving God as Mary loved God with her pure and tender heart, and seeing the angel appear to you. Think of how your heart would feel. This is the Father's plan.

Mary said "yes" to the angel. She always complied to the will of the Father. As we meditate on the rosary, let us meditate on how Mary always obeyed. Let us think of Mary all through her life, how she always did exactly what God asked her to do. As an obedient daughter to the Father, Mary always obeyed and trusted in God.

We are so silly in so many ways, how we get caught up in so many incidental things in our lives. If we look at the life of Mary, we see the angel appeared to Mary. This is the Father's plan. And we see the 15th mystery of the rosary where Mary is crowned 'Queen of Heaven and Earth'. Mary was always in such peace for she followed the Father's will perfectly. It is in following His will in our lives that we will have peace and joy, for we are being guarded at every second of our lives by the Almighty God, help us to know what the Father's will is for us. He has a plan for each one of us to help us to help souls and to get to heaven ourselves.

Jesus: I have a divine plan for you. I created you with special gifts and talents to be used to do My work. They are not for your own self-promotion. You, My child, are nothing except as I created you. Why try to promote yourself? It is none of your own doing. I gave you the talents you are using. You had nothing to do with it. These talents were given to you to do My work. To use these talents to make yourself feel better than your brother is indeed a sin. You must realize they are loaned to you to work for Me. As you give someone a car, or loan them a place to stay, I loan you your talents to use to work for Me. If you do not work for Me and use them to make yourself better than your brother, you are offending Me. Likewise, if I give you talents and you do not use them because you think you are not as good as your brother, you are not being thankful to Me for My gifts to you. You are not using My gifts and that offends Me greatly. Each person was created by Me to do My work. Each person has all he needs to do My work. To be envious of others is fruitless. They have their job. You have yours. You are not supposed to do their work. That is why you were not given their talents.

R. We see the plan of the Father as it unfolds in the life of our beloved Mother. This is the same plan that the Father has for each one of us uniquely created with such talents and gifts. We cannot even imagine the talents that the Father has given to each one of us. Each one of us are so important to the Father's plan. Let us pray to the Holy Spirit that we will be led always to do the will of the Father, for so great are we that He has given to us such gifts.

"And the Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us."

8. R. Mary made haste to the hill country to be with her cousin Elizabeth who also was with child in her old age. Mary goes to tell one person the good news. At the Holy Spirit Center, across from this window that shows this rosary mystery, there is the Assumption of Our Lady window. We see how the plan of the Father unfolds. Mary always complied to the will of the Father. Mary was always in peace within her heart.

Next to this window, at the Holy Spirit Center, is the Descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles which is close to across from the Visitation window. The Father said that the windows at the Holy Spirit Center were very important to His plan, we meditate on the lives of Jesus and Mary in the rosary. Jesus lives in us. God operates through us in the world.

9. R. In the Visitation Mary tells one person, and across the chapel the window which is the Descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and the Blessed Virgin Mary, we see how the Church grew as the Apostles went out and carried this message. Mary went to visit her cousin Elizabeth. Today, we are being called in this room, the apostles in the Shepherds of Christ Movement, to go out into this world to carry this message, the message of God's love to this world, the message that this world needs for we see the hungry souls. We see the pain and suffering in this world. We see. We see and we are upset within ourselves at what we see on the television and in the world, but the answer is the burning love of Jesus. Only the burning love of Jesus will satisfy the hunger in the souls, the hunger that God put into the souls for love of Him and love of one another. This world is in a sick state, and the mighty medicine Jesus says, is His burning love. We are being called in this room, this night, to hear from Jesus, how He is asking us to go into the world and to carry His love to all those that are suffering and in pain. The world is in need of this medicine. Nothing but the love of God will satisfy the starved souls.

How does Christ live within us as we visit others in our lives? Do we carry His love in our actions? Are we motivated by this love in our hearts? 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 this world." We are being called in this rosary and the Shepherds of Christ Movement, to give our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, and in so giving our hearts to Them, our hearts will be consumed with love. When we visit others in this world, when we interact with all those who come into our lives, it will be the love coming from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary that will flow through us and touch the world that is suffering and in pain.

We see Mary carry the Child Jesus within her womb. She is filled with the Almighty God within her. We think, "how graced is Mary that she carried Jesus within her", but Jesus, this day, gives Himself to each one of us in the Eucharist. We receive Him within ourselves, no less present than the day that Mary walked to Elizabeth's, the day that she walked the earth, and how are we? Do we show our gratitude to God that He gives Himself to us? We carry the same presence within us that Mary carried when she carried Jesus within her womb.   end of excerpts

July 3, 2013 Rosary continues

Mary: And so I call you to do this prayer here. As your Heavenly Mother I have called, and I have called and I have called for 19 years. I have called the 5ths, that the 5ths be a time of deep holiness and prayer, that you listen to the messages that I have given to you, that you take this seriously, that you spread the message to the people in the world, for you have been chosen to do this. This is the will of the Father, that He has called you to spread this message to the world. And so satan will come and he will get you to focus on yourselves, and to not think of what I am saying. It is almost impossible for me to reach you with the real message that I have delivered to you over and over and over again. For the focus constantly is in yourselves as satan directs you, you listen to him. How many different words do you want me to speak to you, that you will understand the seriousness of a soul on the edge of death, that will go to hell for all eternity. How would that be if that was one of your relatives, someone that is very dear to you. As your Heavenly Mother, I cry for my little ones, that are being lost this day. God the Father has given to you this building for 15 years to help to spread this message with a fervent heart, that the youth will pray the rosary, that men will come and pray here, that they will spread the Blue Books, that you will listen, as I appear, to the messages that I have delivered, and time and time again, the same focus, the focus that drives you from so many pensive moments, where God wishes to use your whole prayers in unity and in obedience, to help to bring down the great grace that is needed for those souls now that are on the edge of death, for my children that will be lost forever, for I stood beneath the cross and my heart was in such anguish for my little ones that would be lost forever, and yet you do not hear the words that I speak to you.

Busy, busy, busy Jesus says, busy, busy, busy, and all the 5ths that were challenged in this building, busy, busy, busy. When people came and wanted to feel that holiness, My presence as I appeared. You are to be other focused, that means that you are searching to comprehend what the purpose of this building is. In the course of salvation history and the plan of the Father, that you do not listen to satan to block the very message that you have been called by God the Father to deliver. Souls are at the edge of death at this very moment, and you focus on yourselves.

Mary: The 5ths, the 17ths, the retreats – you have been called by God to deliver this message to the world. You have been called by God to deliver this message to the world. You have been called by God to deliver this message to the world. That is why this building exists. Do you follow? Or do you have another agenda that is always going on? When you are called to pick up the books, you pick up the books. When you are called to end up going to the retreat, you do the retreat. When you are called to do a message, you do a message. When there is a group you are there to support whatever it is that God wants accomplished. In all my apparitions, there has been so many challenges, from the people that have been called by God, and so few are left. If God calls you, why are you getting your answers from what other people do? When you stand at the edge of death, it will be you and God.

R. Pray for healing in body, mind and soul. Pray for obedience that you will be following the plan of God the Father. So that we can spread the messages to help the Church and the world and the individual Christian to be more and more in that image of Jesus, who obeyed the will of the Father perfectly, who shows us how much is accomplished when we do as God has asked us to do. In all the 5ths that Mary has appeared to me for 19 years, having listened to the cry of our Heavenly Mother, there has been so much wasted effort because of self-focus. How will others know why this building exists, why we have been called by the Blessed Mother here, why God the Father allowed her to appear here, if the focus is on ourselves?

    All these rosaries from 1996 are rosaries in which God spoke to me about the world. He spoke to me about His love. He spoke to me about the Eucharist. He spoke to me about the Church, the focus was what God was giving, the focus is to listen to God, the focus is to be obedient, the focus is to know what a honor this is that we have been in this building for 15 years, and Mary appeared here as she did for 7 1/2 years. Always something else going on. God tells us to do this, you do that. When God calls us to do this, you do that, there's an issue. Stop it. If He calls to pray on the 5th, we pray on the 5th, if they call us to pray on the 4th, we pray on the 4th. If they call us to fix the well, we fix the well. If they call us to fix the lock, we fix the lock.

    You create the issue by opposing the very way that God has given to us, over and over and over again, to discredit whatever it is that God is trying to accomplish and ignore what needs to be done, with a challenge, of you being right when you do something wrong. That's satan. Mary says that satan wants to change what is wrong and show it as right and take what is right and show it as wrong. Nothing can be accomplish when we support satan. When you support satan, you get satan. When you are a follower, when you are the person who is listening to what God wants, then we will have the strength of God behind us, and not the self-focus of satan.

R. God gave to them so many gifts in the garden and they opposed the will of God. They disobeyed and in that disobedience, they were sent away from the garden. In weakness of a human nature is to seek dominance for dominance sake, and satan will play with that over and over and over again. Let your hearts be pure. As Handmaids of the Good Shepherd, as Servants of the Good Shepherd, live to follow, that others will come and know the stability of the movement. Who wants to give your life when everybody has their own agenda? Some of the most difficult things for people to do is to go to work, when rules are not enforced. There are rules in every walk of life, and that when one is a leader disobeys the rules or bends the rules, they teach a bad example to everyone around them, and they lessen the caliber of what it should be, in order for something to function efficiently as is needed. You have all seen families where a child that is so rebellious hurts the rest of the family. This movement has been given and these message as great gifts given to the world, that men will follow these teachings and find the truth in the peace and the light.

Glory Be

R. And I pray to You God that we will be able to help make reparation for not recognizing the great gifts that were given here, at the Lady of Clearwater – and in China, great gifts were given. In focusing on God and what He wants and not ourselves and how we need to mold things, but being open as a key, that opens a door to the Heart of Jesus, that wants to be in the hearts of the people of this world. This is a key to open men's hearts to the Heart of the burning love of Jesus Christ, who was born in a stable in Bethlehem, who took flesh, the Divine Almighty God, giving Himself completely to His death on the cross in love. Why hold on to this hardness of heart and the ways in which we hold on to certain things that are of no account but hurting ourselves and others.

 

The Nativity

1. Jesus: A crippled man cannot walk, and one without a voice cannot speak, and ears that are clogged with wax, do not hear; but as you remain use to these problems in your lives, they can become a matter that you accept. I have called you to go out and to reach the people of this earth with the message that your heavenly Mother has delivered at the direction of your Heavenly Father for 19 years - 19 years of 5ths. Where were you in your heart when she appeared? Did you listen? Did you carry the message? Were you in your heart after she appeared all the times she appeared and then appeared here on the building? When a miracle is given, a great gift of healing, do you not rejoice and thank the Lord ,or are you like the lepers that were healed and never thanked God? What you have been given is a gift to share with others so that it can continue when you are gone, not to hoard gifts, because you are in competition with your brothers. The gifts that are given to you are to be passed on. If you miss this lesson, you will hurt many others.

2. Jesus: Were not the talents given to you, given to you to be used to promote My Kingdom? Is not your life a gift that you are breathing now at this moment, that you are serving and loving Me? Is not your health a gift that you have been given, to love and to serve others? Why the selfishness of taking of what I have given to you, to think it is for yourselves alone.

3. R. And I pray for healing in body, mind and soul, generational healing. Pray for Tom's intentions. Pray for John's brother-in-law. Pray especially for Melanie and Dan and for Catherine and her intentions. I want to pray for my own healing. Pray for Jack and Sue's sister and the people that have asked us to pray for them. I want to pray for Gary, and especially that if it is God's will he can be healed and that he will help us with the priest house, so that we will be able to do what God has asked us to do.

Jesus: For the talents that I have given to you have been for the building of My Kingdom, and yet so many hoard their talents, and even try to disguise them while they are hurting so many, hurting the souls that need your service, that need you to live your vocation as I have called you to. That you need to develop, more and more, into that ideal self, as you were created by the Father, not to turn away to the other side, to think that there is not enough to go around, to be worried that you will be cheated, to be in competition with your brothers, to not focus on what you were called to do. This is an important mission in the Father's plan to renew the Church and the world. You have been called and you have been chosen. Do not waste time hurting the very plan that God has called you to develop.

4. Mary: And I have appeared to you over and over again, as your heavenly Mother and the cry is the same, for the souls of my children that will be lost. For there are many that are so willful, and the opportunity given here, in China, and in this Movement, can majorly impact the whole world. But if you are not obedient, if you are not pure, if you are not living as Jesus has told you for all of these years, your prayers will be tainted, your motives impure, your attitude selfish. When great gifts have been given to you, and gratitude is in order to your Heavenly Father, and the gifts that God has given to you, why are you so stingy in your ways?

R. And she is appearing.

Mary: I am your Heavenly Mother. Let the next 15 years in this building be years in which you follow Jesus and you live to build His Kingdom. Do not turn your face to the darkness, but turn your face to the light.

R. And she is like so beautiful, and her face is covered with light.

5. Mary: You have been gifted by God that Jesus came and took flesh, that He was conceived in my womb, He was born a baby to teach you about humility and love, to teach you what love really is, that it is sacrifice and giving, that the Divine Almighty God so loved the world that He came as a baby. And God gives to you the talents, how can you hold the talents that God has given, for the use of the spreading of the Kingdom, at bay? No longer, for He knows all your ways. There are souls that are on the edge of death, at this moment. As your Heavenly Mother, I ask you to pray for docile and pure hearts, to be obedient to the call of Jesus, to live your vocation in love - love of God and love of one another. For what good does it do you to do, if God has you to work with another, and your whole way of life in working with them has been in competition and argumentation against the plan of the Father. Do not oppose Him my children, for when you do, you bring in the evil one, who will implement his plan in any way that you allow him. Open up your heart to Jesus. Give Him your all. Serve Him as He deserves to be served. And if He gives you others to work with, work in docility and love and unity and harmony. The effects of the garden was disharmony, disorder, disrespect, violence. Jesus has blessed you. Live your life as He wants you to. Oppose Him no longer.

6. Mary: And so Jesus came a little baby and He lived a quiet life. If you were here, you would have had an agenda for Jesus, you would have had Him doing what you wanted Him to do, right? Do you understand that? Do you need to understand the ways of God? Or are you to be obedient to the ways of God? He could have given to you a little shack with a window on it, and put a little image on that shack, but He gave you a big building with 45 rooms, to do His plan. With human minds, you get human answers. Do you comprehend why God the Father allowed me to appear here for 7 and 1/2 years on this big bank building, why He chose this place? Why do you interfere with His plan?

7. Hail Mary
8. Hail Mary
9. Hail Mary

10. Jesus: The world was created and it was completely harmonious, with such gifts given, and despite the gifts that were given, Eve disobeyed the will of the Father because she listened to the evil one. This is the message that has been given to the world, the message that I give to you this day, is to pray as you have never prayed before, in reparation for the offenses that have offended My Heart and My Mother's heart, when such gifts have been given.

 

The Presentation

Mary: And my heart was invisibly pierced with a sword. I followed the will of the Father exactly without complaint, with a heart of love and obedience. I am Mary, the Handmaid of the Lord.

1. R. A bell is to be rung.

2. R. You are part of the plan of the Heavenly Father and as you can see, that many of your mothers and fathers, and grandpas and grandmas are gone, that they played their part, they had you, they did what they did in their life, and then they were taken through death. So you know that there was a time before and you know that there is probably a time after. Why would anybody take a talent that God has given for the furthering of His Kingdom and try to hoard it?

3. Jesus: You can see something suspended from a hill and if a big wind comes, it can just blow it right off. So are the days of your lives. You were put here in time and in space, to serve your Heavenly Father and to teach to others those things that are necessary so that the world, the Church and the individual Christian in the state of becoming, will become more and more in the image and likeness of Christ. This is the calling in baptism to spread the Good News. It is not to think that you own this or that, and to use it for power against others. I ask for reparation for the offenses against the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

4. R. And so few have been given life. Why do you act like it isn't a gift? If you have been loved into existence, if you have been held into existence, by the Almighty God, if you were given this life and suspended in this time, to serve God and to teach what God has asked you to teach for the future generations, why would you not see the price that you have been called to pay, to help souls now and in the future to go to heaven? You are a member of the Catholic Church and have been given great gifts because of the sacrifices of those that when before you that held not back, some that were martyred for their faith – Jesus that died on the cross and rose on the 3rd day, Mary, who suffered those 7 sorrows, willingly and lovingly for us, as our heavenly Mother – why would we think, in the mentality of the world, which says, that you just think about yourselves. Why does that mean that through baptism we are commissioned to spread the Good News? What does that mean that God has uniquely created us to a mission and it is up to us to say yes or no? Or to forget about the fact, that heaven is a reward, a reward promised to those who love and serve the Lord or that the Our Father says, "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven". We are to be the teachers of these truths called by God in our vocation to spread the Blue Books and to get out of the way, that we are channels of this magnificent message that the Blessed Mother has given to me and to all of us in Clearwater, and she has given it to me on these 5ths for 19 years and we are still in the building.

5. R. So why are we in this building, or why are we in China? Because the retreats are called and He asked especially for this retreat to be a retreat of reparation. Reparation for the offenses that we in the Shepherds of Christ have committed in this selfish attitude, of using anything that was His that blocked the work that could have reached souls while Mary is appearing constantly saying, "Please, I beg you, my children reach the souls. Reach my little ones that are going into hell like rain. Please, I beg you." Being holy means we do the will of God in love, that doesn't mean that we pick our own will, that we disobey when we want, and then we say that this is the will of God, because it fits into my will. It's not like we pick God's will to fit into our will. We do God's will and we submit our will to God's will. He has called us. He has called us to be in this time, to spread this message that will go on when we are gone, and if we don't end up doing it, we are not only not doing it now, we are not doing it for those that are coming in the future, that need to be touched because we are tired today or whatever else, in competition. I don't know, whatever it is. These are the things why God has called this retreat, to make reparation, to no longer ignore the conditions of this world, the Fatima message, the message of Our Lady of Clearwater, which is consistently for 19 years, that "please help me, souls are going into hell like rain, spread the consecration, spread the Blue Books, listen to me, come and do the retreats, pray as one on the 5ths, pray on the 13ths." Not to be a distraction, to follow what God has asked us to do with love and with joy because it is our vocation and that is what Our Lady has said and she has appeared here for 7 1/2 in which the whole world could see her, to know that this is a real message from Mary, our Mother.

6. R. Mary says too much focus is on what other people think of us and not choosing the will of God, when He asks us simply and purely to be this vehicle, to bring this message into salvation history, gladly, lovingly. It's not about us getting power or being satisfied ourselves. It is about exerting ourselves. It is about doing what God is asking of us. How many people said no to the message of Fatima, to watch the violence of World War II, to be here to know the violence of today that a priest was beheaded the other day with a kitchen knife. Our Heavenly Mother has appeared to me for 19 years - 19 years of 5ths. That's a serious message.

7. Mary: I come to you as your heavenly Mother, the Lady of Clearwater, to know that the work that you give with a pure heart will be magnified through the hand of God and that many souls will be reached. Do not fall short of giving God what He deserves as Handmaids of the Lord. Live your vocation with dignity and honor.

8. Mary: And so I speak to you. Do you know the story of the three pigs? Of the ones that built their house of straw and sticks and yet the one pig built his house of bricks. How will you help to contribute to the building up of the Catholic Church, unless you sacrifice by doing the will of God and not your own wills?

9. R. And on that final day He will say, "Well done, good and faithful servant, because you have been faithful in these things that I have called you to, welcome to the Kingdom of the Lord." Heaven is a reward promised to those who love and serve the Lord. When God asked us to work with somebody else and we oppose that relationship, that taints everything that needs to be done. That is not love. That is opposing the will of God. So you are at work and you don't like the person that sits next to you, what do you do about it? Do you keep an attitude, so that finally they end up firing you, because you are a detriment to what needs to be accomplished, because of the attitude of your heart and the differences that you feel with the other? Or if you want to keep your job, do you bend the stubborn heart and will, and try to get over that and accomplish the work that is expected of you? Why is it different? Why is it different when God has called us to this relationship in this movement to tell ourselves, that it is okay to not work with these specific persons that He has called, because of our attitude. He has called us all, each and every single person here, has been called by Him.

    And in all the things that has happened in this movement over the 19 years of 5ths - I have said yes, yes, yes to all the people, yes, unless God gave me a different direction, I said yes. When God calls a person, it is not up to me to decide that I can terminate their vocation. He is calling us. He didn't put the Blessed Mother on this building for 7 and 1/2 years and then not call enough people to end up building up the order that we want to form, with the servants and the handmaids. Everything that is going off in this world today, stems around that disobedience to God, and the devil is having a fanfare. It just goes more and more and more and more in homes. This movement needs to get out there. Those messages that Mary gave in 1996 need to be published. They need to be the history is this movement just like Fr. Carter has been dead for 13 years, that can help to renew the Church and the world. This is a big mission. The Mother of God appeared for 19 years, 7 1/2 years on this building.

    When they didn't obey the message of Fatima, there was World War II. How little was that my friends, when 11 million people were killed, exterminated? Armies were wiped out, towns were destroyed, family life torn in violence, that was so violent, you can hardly whisper it. What about the children of today that are being torn, their limbs. Mary comes at the end of the century delivering this message, giving us this sign in Clearwater. Let us make reparation for that attitudes that we have had, that needed to be changed, when we needed to follow the instructions and to pray and be obedient, having our own agenda. If it is a mailing or whatever else it is, let's just do it guys.

10. Mary: And so I have called you to this vocation and I have asked you to do this and so you decide that you will do something else or not work with those that you have been called to work with. That is from satan, my children. If I have called you to do something, you can work with each other, in love to accomplish it for the building of the Kingdom. You don't want to look at your hearts and tell yourself the sinful things that need to be changed, starting with working with your brothers that God has called you to work with.

R. You say that's for the others, let them work it out, I'm going to do my own thing. It just is - the seeds you sow are the seeds that you will reap. When you sowed division, unloving ways, deception, disorder, disobedience, the only thing that you are going to reap is stuff that is not good.

 

The Finding in the Temple

1. R. I stood beneath the cross of my Son, that's not an old message. Why did she tell it to me for 19 years, all through every year, if that's an old message, that you think has been out there, so we don't have to circulate it. This building exists for that message. But we are too busy deciding. I was reading the things in Blue Book 11, because they were blocked because of the willfulness of a man for 15 years. He did everything he could, to challenge everything under the sun and they were blocked for 15 years. So Blue Books 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and all of them never got out because of him. And he challenged, and he challenged and he challenged, and drove Fr. Carter crazy, and then he wanted to divide me from Fr. Carter because the priests would not listen if the messages were involved. He had all his own ideas. They were the wrong ones, but he had a lot of ideas.

    So when the devil wants us to hold on to something then he makes a battle. I'll hold on to this and fight. What is obedience? I don't understand that, out of everything that has been put out here, since the movement started in 1994, it majorly came through all the messages that God has given to me. So God picked me to do this. Fr. Carter has been dead for 13 years. Challenge after challenge, challenge after challenge. Did the Queen of Peace go away when she gave the message at Fatima, and so then down in 1939 or 1941 whatever it was, then the World War II starts. Did it go away? No it didn't go away! She warned and she said that there is going to be this era of peace and they didn't pay attention. And wow - what happened was violence that nobody could even fathom could even happen. And so we forget what happened. And so we just keep waiting, 19 years - since 1994 Our Lady has delivered this message - souls are going into hell like rain.

2. Mary: Is it about you or it is about the message that I deliver that you are here this night? Then why make the focus yourselves and ignore the message I deliver concerning souls that are being lost this very day for all eternity.

3. Mary: I stood beneath the cross of my Son and my heart was in such anguish, for my little ones that would be lost forever. Help me, my children. I am Our Lady of Clearwater.

                R. Do you remember July 13, 1917 – 96 Years Ago

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima by Fr. Edward 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)

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
 

                R. Hope

                Mary said at Fatima – the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign
                    and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph –

                Poland was taken over by Germany 1939

                They were afraid –

                Who thought such things could be done
                    killing Jews –
                    6,000,000 Jews were killed

                They made the Jews go to the Ghetto
                Then they began removing them, exterminating
                    them – women, children, all Jews

                Many shot dead – no mercy

                Evil men killing the Jews treating them
                    like rates – exterminating

                People were full of fear and rightfully
                    so, they killed children, boarded
                    on trucks, killed – no mercy for
                    the Jews –

                They were to be exterminated –

                The soldiers forced the Jews to gas chambers,
                    shot Jews naked and they fell in pits.
                    Many dead bodies were burned –
                    They were run from their homes, they
                    took their jewelry, gold in their teeth,
                    they threw their clothes on heaps and
                    they killed many naked in showers
                    and gas chambers –

                Mass murders – no one thought could ever
                    happen –

                Mary gave this message July 13, 1917 –

                R. How could this ever happen?
                The Jew's precious things were taken by the Nazis
                Jews were lied to and led to death –

                The Germans used guns and tanks and
                    soldiers and force –

                Freedom

                God wants us to live according to
                    God's will –

                When we deviate from God's will it
                    allows evil to flourish.

                To be full of hatred and bitterness
                    is to open the door to satan –
                    to seek power for power's sake
                    is to open a door to satan –
                    to sin and continue in evil is
                    to open a door to satan and evil –

                Brute force and power, killing of the
                    Jews, dehumanization of the
                    Jews by the Nazis

                The attack was on the arts and education in
                    Poland to try to take out Polish culture –
                    intellectuals –

                Jews were forced to get on trucks,
                    trains and killed –
                    Men were shot unmercifully –
                    They killed professors, trying
                    to wipe out education –
                    No one could oppose their
                        violence
                    They killed and brutalized anyone
                        they wanted –

                They stripped Jews before they killed
                    them –
                    they attacked priests and occupied
                    Churches –

                Mockery of the Church –
                Force was used –
                Force, hatred, they tried to wipe
                    out the culture –

                While the Jews were killed, the children
                    watched this –

                The Germans, wined and dined, played,
                    raised families and acted like
                    they did no wrong –

                There was such suffering, such
                    atrocious things happening,
                    horror – no one could even
                    imagine –

                Mary appeared at Fatima and she warned
                    of what would happen –
                    They killed the sick Jews –
                    They were silent because of
                        the force and being killed,
                        horror –

                The eyes that saw such things ended
                    for most in their unmerciful
                    death.

                Evil at its heights!
                How could this happen?
                Mary warned!

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."

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward 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)

                R. Jews were shot dead –

                The innocent so no one would oppose
                    this evil –

                Eyes, hearts, and minds who tore apart
                    families of Jews and
                    had families of their own –

                Jews treated like rats –

                Mary is telling us what to do –

                R. Horror incomprehensible –
                Hate against the Church –
                Evil personified –

                Opposing God's will –
                Opposing God's truth –
                Inhumanity to man –

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

   

                R. Pope John Paul II knew this terrible
                    time in Poland –
                    They tried to do away with
                        Education –

                Poland was suffering –
                    with guns pointed at
                    their heads –

                The Nazi's wanted to wipe out Polish
                    culture –

                Mary is telling us what to do –

                Jesus told us to start these prayer chapters
                    around the world –
                    We have these prayers in 8 languages
                        with the Imprimatur given
                        by Jesus

 

Novena al Espiritu Santo  English

Novena al Espiritu Santo  Espaρol

Novena al Espiritu Santo  Franηais

Novena al Espiritu Santo  Portuguκs

Novena al Espiritu Santo  Italiano

Novena al Espiritu Santo  Polska

               
                R.
Mary said until we spread the consecration
                    to the Two Hearts we won't have
                    peace in the world –

                Jesus said we need to spread His
                    Blue Books with rosaries –

                Mary and Jesus said we need to pray the rosary –
                We need to observe the First Saturday
                    Devotion –

                We see the barren trees of winter

                In front of these trees we
                    know that we can conquer
                    satan with the blood of
                    the lamb

Through Him, With Him, In Him
 

                R. They exterminated the Jews and they
                    killed the Polish who helped Jews.

                Nazi Soldiers shot men down in cold blood.

                The light of Christ never burns out.

                We can only fight the battle with
                    love –

                In history we see the Nazi's did this and
                    evil can come back in
                    a different way –

                Mary and Jesus are the Hearts of
                    greatest love –

                How dark could World War II be with
                    the mass murders and the soldiers
                    who were killed fighting the Nazis –

                We can't stop where we are
                    we have to go on to fight
                    for this renewal of the
                    Church and the world.

                Jesus gave us these prayers –

                Men are suffering now, the further
                    they go from God –

                Mary's message has begged us
                    to reach the children.

                The loss of loved ones is devastating,
                    what about the loss of a soul
                    forever –
                    this is Mary's message –

                God has called us to be a
                    positive witness of hope –
                    We cannot underestimate
                    how God is calling us to
                    respond to Mary's message –

                Jesus: I have called you to spread this
                    message. God the Father has given you
                    the Clearwater vision –

                    How can you ignore Me for
                        your irritations?

                    I am sick for the gifts I have
                        give, not given to the greatest
                        saints.

                    The ingratitude!

                Let Me tell you – you have
                    tried to make right - wrong and
                    wrong - right, blocking the
                    Father's will – opening doors
                    to satan –

                While the message I give is
                    ignored –
                    The message to tell you what
                    you must do to go to the
                    Reign of My Sacred Heart and triumph
                    of Mary's Immaculate Heart –

                When the energy one has to go
                    above just authority is the only
                    enthusiasm one has – they
                    are serving satan –

                A person doing God's will has
                    energy to serve under
                    the just authority and
                    support the authority one
                    is called to serve – not
                    oppose those over them –

                Energy is negative energy from
                    satan when people under
                    just authority challenge
                    those over them in competition,
                    rather than being obedient

                You are under God, I work in
                    structure – I work in just
                    authority –

                The Church has very defined
                    structure.

                I call people to their vocation and
                    they are to respond by serving
                    to help build My Kingdom.
                    To study the messages during
                    the retreats rather than
                    ignore them and do your
                    own thing. I am giving
                    messages that are being ignored
                    and disobeyed that are major
                    to the mission Mary began
                    at Fatima.

                    Do not block My Mission –
                or compete with the
                message I have given and My
                Mother has given –

                I want these rosaries from
                    July 3rd and 5th transcribed
                    immediately –
                    then the messages of July 4th

                I am the ultimate mystery –
                I have given you insight into
                    the Divine Mysteries – do
                    not ignore Me, the Ministries
                    and do your own thing –

                I am Jesus, this is an important
                    message, I give in this
                    month, 96 years after
                    the Fatima message of
                    July 13, 1917.

                I came to this earth that you
                    could be saved.

                Song: A Song from Jesus

                Mary: God the Father allowed me to
                appear at Clearwater. He wants
                my message circulated –
                I am the Queen of Peace –

                Unless a sufficient number of people
                    have consecrated their hearts
                    to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
                    you will not have peace in the world.

                The priests can suffer –

                Jesus has begged you for 19 years
                    to spread His prayers. 


 

                Mary: The priest is such a gift.

                You must pray for them and take this
                    seriously.

                Jesus: I want you to carry the Prayer for Union
                    in your pockets and say it all
                    through the day.

                Mary: The abortion of the babies must stop,
                    Pray as Jesus has taught you.

                The religious suffered during World War II.

                Now the devil is attacking
                    sisters, brothers and priests –

                You must pray as Jesus has called you.

                Rita is a messenger for me and Jesus,
                    obey the messages or
                    you will suffer more and more –

 

                July 9, 2013

                R. God loves man –
                God created us –
                God gave us the world –
                God gave us gifts –
                God created us in His image and likeness –

                Man sinned,
                Man rebelled against a good God –

 

Soul of Christ

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.

 

                    From The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, by Louis J. Puhl, S.J. p.11

21.                     SPIRITUAL EXERCISES

    Which have as their purpose the conquest of self
    and the regulation of one's life in such a way that
    no decision is made under the influence of any
    inordinate attachment
 

p. 12

                        23. FIRST PRINCIPLE AND FOUNDATION

                            Man is created to praise, reverence and serve God 
                        our Lord, and by this means to save his soul.

   

                R. God is over us
                We see the vast world
                God is the Creator
                We are the creatures –
                We were created by God for a purpose –

                God gave us gifts, all we need to
                    serve Him as He wants, to
                    develop these gifts to help in
                    the building of God's Kingdom –

                Sing: Seek Ye First

                R. We must be true to ourselves –

                We must seek this unity with God to
                    know ourselves –
                    Conversion –
                    To die to the ways not like Jesus –
                    To rise in the ways that make us more like Jesus

                We came into this world in the womb of a
                    physical mother – We were molded
                    in her womb –

                We were the fruit of an act of our Mother and
                    Father and God loved us into existence –
                    God has a purpose for our lives –
                    A purpose now and to effect others
                        when we are gone by how we
                        lived our life –

                    We are here to know, love and serve God
                        and to love our neighbor as
                        ourselves.

                We are to examine our conscience and see if
                    we are operating according to God's will or
                    if we are opposing God's will of harmony
                    and love and service as He intends.

                We are to examine our conscience twice
                    a day, Fr. Carter said – He did an examine
                    twice a day –

                Take your spiritual pulse –

                See where you are spiritually – is the
                    devil tainting your actions –

                Are they selfish, jealous, prideful,
                    because of anger,

                Have you ceased to focus on God's will
                    and treated others in selfishness,
                    Have you taken care to eat – so the
                    devil isn't operating you through
                    low blood sugar, or whatever
                    happens when one disobeys the
                    laws of God with regard to
                    proper nutrition throughout
                    the day –

                Is there a particular calling - God wants of you –
                    in your vocation – so you avoid it
                    and only have energy when you are
                    promoting yourself and
                    disobeying authority –

                Are you unable to take correction when you
                    are under authority – so you become
                    angry and strike out, resist correction,
                    and the furthering of building the
                    family, community, parish because
                    you have negative energy coming for having
                    your own way - opposed to correction
                    and authority.

                Do you do what you want against authority,
                    and don't report upward –

                Calling yourself free, when satan is
                    stepping-in 'running the ship' while
                    you ignore the laws and rules and
                    people God has given to tell you
                    what you should do.

                Energy that comes centered in fighting authority
                    and proving you are right when you
                    disobeyed or acted against what authority
                    wanted, or with sins of omission
                    with regard to one's leadership and
                    the need to report upward, are
                    all ways satan tricks someone to
                    seize control.

                The person is so focused on themselves and
                    being right when they are wrong –
                    resisting correction –

                    They fail to see a job God wants done and
                they work for satan blocking the job that
                He wants for the building of the Kingdom.

                    Examining our conscience when one
                is responsible under just authority is
                this – Have I obeyed those over me?
                    Have I challenged to argument and
                    wasted time and energy, to
                    focus on myself, am I trying
                    to get my way and is there
                    negative energy coming from
                    being in desolation in trying to
                    control for control sake –

                A spiritual director is to help one discern
                    the spirits to see if they are from
                    the Holy Spirit, the devil, or just a
                    person's own will.

                In religious orders - God gives a
                    spiritual director and the person
                    under a spiritual director is to trust
                    and to obey the direction when satan
                    is working and it is pointed out to them.

                Jesus, in these daily messages has given to us
                    message after message how satan
                    works in relationships, families,
                    communities etc.

                The devil we see in the world is pressing
                    down and decisions of men become
                    laws that are against God's commandments.

                When one is under just authority and the only energy
                    they have is when they are doing
                    their own will, when they want,
                    how they want and they fight any
                    correction, any way to change their
                    wrong decisions –
                    they have seized the floor for satan
                    who wants to trick people, like
                    Eve in the garden –
                    to try to show wrong is right and
                    right is wrong.

                Jesus: I am the way, the truth and the life.
                    There is a job to do in the building of
                    My Kingdom here on earth. When a
                    person is in desolation and is a leader
                    under one in authority and does not
                    take correction, forcing their disobedience
                    on the institution or place –
                    the negative energy that they have to
                    fight just authority is wrong from the
                    beginning.

                Just authority is given to obey, even if
                    one under authority thinks they have
                    a better idea or are better than
                    the authority or those they chose.
                    Being under authority means you
                    obey and work for the good of all.

                Religious orders have been under the
                    vows of poverty, chastity and
                    obedience for almost 2000 years.

                Children are to obey parents under the
                    4th commandment.

                This is order.

                From the sin of Adam and Eve –
                    disorder entered the world –
                    evil from the rejection of the Divine will –
                    responsibility to obedience to the Divine will –

                God is the Creator –

                The world was serene and beautiful, peaceful,
                    harmonious, loving, good and
                    orderly without sin –
                    without violence –
                    without evil –

                You are here, in God's timing because you
                    were chosen to be here by God and to
                    do God's will for My purpose.
                    You are creatures – God is your Creator –

                The devil wants you to try to be above God.

   

Romans 8: 5-9

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

   

                Jesus: You are to be a new creation in Me –
                I give to you the gift of baptism –

                Being willful
                Opposing God's will
                Has bad consequences.

                God is telling you how to live –
                I give you directions –
                I give you the 10 Commandments –
                I give you My Word –

                The Our Father says
                    "Thy will be done on earth as
                        it is in heaven"

                Heaven is a reward promised to those
                    who loved and served the Lord
                    and are obedient
                    to the will of God –

       

Excerpt from Response in Christ by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

e) Relationship with Members of the Church

There is but one true Church of Christ. Yet this one Church has three different states of existence. There is the pilgrim Church, the Church of this world, composed of members who have received the grace of Christ and strive for its development. They have not yet obtained the goal of their efforts, as have the members of the heavenly Church, who enjoy God in eternal happiness. The Church suffering is an intermediate state of existence necessary for those who had not achieved the required purification as members of the pilgrim Church. Although there are these three phases of the Church’s existence, there is a profound union existing between all the members. All these members possess the same basic life of grace in Christ, and this common life establishes the most intimate bonds of love. In our preceding chapter, we discussed the pilgrim Church. Let us now consider the Church suffering and the heavenly Church.

The members of the Church suffering are those who have departed from this life in an incomplete state of Christian development. Their development is incomplete in the sense that grace has not fully taken possession of them, and, as a result, they are yet closed in upon themselves to a greater or lesser degree. They as yet cannot open themselves out in complete love to the Triune God in the beatific vision. They must undergo a further purification, a purification which could have been achieved upon earth with merit. Now the purification must be achieved with no merit attached. The pain of this purification is mixed with the certain expectation of achieving the vision of God. We can hasten the advent of this vision for this people by the offering of prayers and other good works. Scripture itself refers to our action on behalf of those in purgatory in Chapter 12 of the Second Book of Maccabees beginning with verse 38.

The members of the heavenly Church are those in whom the life of grace has taken full possession and has reached its completion in the life of glory. Faith now is unnecessary, as the light of glory gives the human intellect a new strength and capacity for seeing God face-to-face. While the Christian was a wayfarer, he received the imprint of the indwelling Trinity as he shared in God’s own life. Now in heaven that grace-life and possession of God reaches its completion—the absolute completion is not achieved, however, until the resurrection of the body. The divine persons give Themselves to the beatified in a profound union far surpassing that of the indwelling of the Trinity experienced here below.

This life of heaven is still the Christ-life, for just as we possess a share in Trinitarian life here below as mediated by Christ, and exercise this grace-life as structured by Him, so also in heaven is the mediation of Christ present. In the words of Rahner, "One always sees the Father through Jesus. Just as immediately as this, for the directness of the vision of God is not a denial of the mediatorship of Christ as man."14 And not only does the humanity of Christ unite the blessed to God, but also, in some way, to the whole of creation. This is merely a completion of what is begun here below, namely, the union with Christ in His humanity establishing the Christian in a special relationship with God, with other men, and with the whole of creation. We have a glimpse, therefore, of the fullness of life which members of the heavenly Church possess.

The heavenly Church, as St. Thomas says, is the true Church.15 The Church of this earth and the Church of purgatory are, each in its own way, reaching out in loving hope for the heavenly Jerusalem. Vatican II puts it very simply: "The Church, to which we are called in Christ Jesus, and in which we acquire sanctity through the grace of God, will attain her full perfection only in the glory of heaven."16

The members of the heavenly Church can help us in living our life of grace until we too share its fullness with them. Their power of intercession on our behalf is but another ramification of the communal aspect of Christianity. We are meant to help others grow in Christ. We, in turn, are intended by God to receive aid from others—yes, from members of the heavenly Church, as well as from those with whom we dwell here below.

Not only can we be aided by the saints’ intercession, but the example of the canonized saints can also be of great value to us. They have concretely proved that full holiness is possible. Such an inspiration is of real worth when we are tempted to think that Christian sanctity in its higher degrees is impossible of attainment. Moreover, the canonized saints, in their diversity, teach us that there are many authentic versions of Christian holiness. They can be innovators in showing us that there are numerous possibilities in assimilating the mystery of Christ, although the basic assimilation remains the same for all Christians of all times. In the opinion of Rahner this is one of the chief roles the canonized saints exert in the life of the Church.17

                Jesus: Even the species were ordered in the first
                    days of creation –

                The devil wants disorder so he can
                    usurp just authority.

                From the beginning man was called to
                    mutual self-giving – in
                    marriage – male and female –
                    No man is an island.

                I give man and woman and in one flesh they
                    make fruit for the Kingdom –

                In the apex of creation, man is higher than
                    the plants and animals.

                A child is a fruit that is such a gift to
                    the building of My Kingdom.

                Unity, working in order, self-giving,
                    I call people to love, to obedience,
                    to working under authority –

                Men and women in marriage are to
                    help each other – to fulfill their
                    role in life and to someday go
                    to heaven –

                You are called to be sub-ordinate, a
                    helper to those in authority –

                Because of pride and covetousness,
                    jealousy, envy, anger, man can
                    disobey and seek dominance
                    for dominance sake. 
 

1 Corinthians 15:20-28

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

   

                Jesus: The devil is cunning. He makes good
                    look evil and evil look good.
                    The devil tempted Eve to disobey
                    God and thus she raised
                    herself above God. She did not trust
                    in the Creator, she abused her role
                    under God, she abused freedom.

                Disobedience to just authority is opposed
                    to the will of God. I work in
                    structure.

                Disobedience to authority has consequences,
                    causes disorder, teaches others
                    to disrespect and disobey,
                    opens a door to satan to try to
                    be in charge.

                When a person is fighting the just authority –
                    they have made themselves the leader
                    and oppose the structure that causes
                    the place to operate as I desire.

                The serpent tempts the person under the guise
                    of trying to make evil look good.

                The devil lies.
                The devil is the father of lies.

                A person that is not in touch with themselves,
                    with their weaknesses from the past,
                    with their inordinate attachments is
                    usually not making the right decisions.
                    Satan can tempt a person, through emotions,
                    feelings of the past, anger, jealousy,
                    seeking power, lack of real unity and
                    love and trust in others (isolation)
                    and the person judges their decisions
                    by their own desires and imperfections
                    not by what God wants.

                I want My Blue Books to circulate – souls
                    are at stake – I want fervent prayer –
                    not combat and argumentation.

                The Shepherds of Christ is called by God the
                    Father to help bring this Era of Peace.

                Unless a person is in touch with their
                    sins through examination of
                    conscience, they can continue
                    in disobedience, in envy, in
                    jealousy, covetousness, pride
                    and they have a more and more
                    distorted image of themselves,
                    others and God.

                Food, drink, drugs is a way the devil uses
                    to distort how one feels inside.

                Eating one meal a day, not eating properly
                    effects the judgments of the person
                    abusing their use of food – food was given
                    to feed the body and keep it working in
                    a healthy way – all day – all through
                    the day –

                The devil can work on individuals
                    who are not observing God's
                    will in eating throughout the day
                    and eating properly.

                Then the blame kicks in
                    Trying to make wrong look right and
                        right look wrong.

                Authority is a friend when God
                    has given this structure and
                    it is to be obeyed –

                Concupiscence, pride, greed, envy,
                    wrath, lust, gluttony, and sloth
                    moves one toward sin

                The sin of Adam and Eve brought original sin.
                Man has a wounded human nature –
                Sin hurts the order desired by God.

                R. We see the pain in childbearing because of
                    the sin of Eve.

 

Genesis 3: 19

    By the sweat of your face
    will you earn you food,
    until you return to the ground,
    as you were taken from it.
    For dust you are
    and to dust you shall return.

   

                R. God intends us to honor His gifts given to us.
                God intends us to cooperate with His will.
                God intends us to obey just authority –
                God intends us to obey the commandments.

                We see fighting between husband and wife
                    for dominance for dominance sake.

                Children are fighting with parents
                    despite the 4th commandment.

                We are inclined to sin because of our
                    wounded human nature.

                An inclination to sin called
                    concupiscence

                We have a free will, we have an
                    inclination to sin, but we have
                    the gift of reasoning –
   

Romans 1: 19-20

For what can be known about God is perfectly plain to them, since God has made it plain to them: ever since the creation of the world, the invisible existence of God and his everlasting power have been clearly seen by the mind's understanding of created things. And so these people have no excuse:

   

Wisdom 13: 1-9

Yes, naturally stupid are all who are unaware of God,
and who, from good things seen, have not been able to discover Him—who—is,
or, by studying the works, have not recognised the Artificer.
Fire, however, or wind, or the swift air,
the sphere of the stars, impetuous water, heaven’s lamps,
are what they have held to be the gods who govern the world.

If, charmed by their beauty, they have taken these for gods,
let them know how much the Master of these excels them,
ince he was the very source of beauty that created them.
And if they have been impressed by their power and energy,
let them deduce from these how much mightier is he that has formed them,
since through the grandeur and beauty of the creatures
we may, by analogy, contemplate their Author.

Small blame, however, attaches to them,
for perhaps they go astray
only in their search for God and their eagerness to find him;
familiar with his works, they investigate them
and fall victim to appearances, seeing so much beauty.
But even so, they have no excuse:
if they are capable of acquiring enough knowledge
to be able to investigate the world,
how have they been so slow to find its Master?

   

                R. We have been called to choose life
                    not death.

                We are called to choose to respect and
                    love and obey God and uncover
                    the mystery of God's love

                We see immediately
                    Cain and Abel are children of Adam and Eve.
                    Cain lied to God –
                    Cain killed his brother in cold blood –

                We see from Adam and Eve - more sin is added
                    generation after generation –
                    We see the structure becomes corrupted –
                    More and more sin –
                    selfishness

                Those who end up in hell chose it for themselves.

                 Mary has appeared over and over again asking
                    us to spread this message of God's love and
                    the message of how many souls are going to hell.

                Do we even listen to Mary –
                We can focus on being right when we are
                    wrong, argumentation,
                    selfishness and not even hear Mary.

The Birth of the Full Ministries of the Shepherds of Christ

    "I wish to share with you part of a message which Jesus gave us on October 13, 1994. The message tells us about the expansion of the Shepherds of Christ movement:

    'My beloved priest-companion, today I come to you with another mission. I am asking you to establish Shepherds of Christ Ministries. At My request you have already begun the priestly newsletter, "Shepherds of Christ", and the prayer chapters, Shepherds of Christ Associates...

    'I am giving you this message on this day, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, because of the close connection between the Shepherds of Christ movement and the Fatima message. The Fatima message is centered in devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart, especially in consecration to Our Hearts. Shepherds of Christ Ministries is also centered in devotion to Our Hearts. I will use Shepherds of Christ Ministries as a great instrument in helping to bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. When this occurs, My Church and the world will be experiencing the great era of peace promised by My Mother at Fatima.

    'Today, then, October 13, 1994, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, marks the birth of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I pour forth the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.'

    "Jesus has told us that Shepherds of Christ Ministries includes: the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, Shepherds of Christ Associates prayer chapters, various publications, including books, whatever else Our Lord directs us to undertake.

    "As members of Shepherds of Christ Associates, you are an extremely important part of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. You have given great joy to the Heart of Jesus by responding to His invitation to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. As He draws you closer to His Heart and to His Mother's Heart as Associates members, He will fill you with an ever-increasing experience of His love, peace, and joy."

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

My dear fellow Associate Members,

Jesus is calling special apostles to join a new division of the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Here is a message from Jesus given to Father Carter:

    My beloved priest-companion, I am requesting that a new prayer movement be started under the direction of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I am asking for volunteers who are willing to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for one hour, twice-weekly. Members of the Shepherds of Christ prayer chapters, as well as others, are to be invited to join this movement.

    These apostles are to pray for the intentions I am giving you. For part of the hour they are to use the prayers of the Shepherds of Christ Associates Handbook. They may spend the rest of the hour as they so choose.

    I will use this new prayer movement within My Shepherds of Christ Ministries in a powerful way to help in the renewal of My Church and the world. I will give great graces to those who join this movement. The name, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, is to be given to this movement.

    I am inviting My beloved Rita Ring to be coordinator for this activity.

    I pour out the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.

    This is indeed a special calling for us to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:

    1. For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.
    2. For the Pope.
    3. For all bishops of the world.
    4. For all priests.
    5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.
    6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.

1 Peter 3: 20-21

They refused to believe long ago, while God patiently waited to receive them, in Noah’s time when the ark was being built. In it only a few, that is eight souls, were saved through water. It is the baptism corresponding to this water which saves you now—not the washing off of physical dirt but the pledge of a good conscience given to God through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,

     

                R. We see the world became so corrupted
                    God flooded the earth at the time
                    of Noah.

                How is your heart?

                The heart is what is the center of love and
                    unity and relationship with God.

                Men wanted to reach to heaven with the
                    Tower of Babel – make a name for
                    themselves – NEGATIVE ENERGY –
                    SELF-FOCUSED
                    They wanted to do it without God –

                There was one language – unity

             "They wanted to do what they wanted to do
                    without God"

                Energy to do their own will opposed to
                    God's will comes from satan.

                But a person doing this, can have little or
                    no energy to do the simple things God is asking
                    for – for serving God as He asks – selfish
                    men want to be recognized over authority –
                    want to do it their way –

                Tower of Babel

                God tells us He will bless those who do
                    His will –

                They bring curses on themselves when
                    they oppose God's will –

                We have a free will to
                    do God's will or oppose God's will –

                    Satan gives a negative energy to do
                        it our way –

                    Then we can have no enthusiasm for
                        God's way.

                    We can fight to oppose God's will –
                        when we are wrong, we can try
                        to show we are right and
                        never handle the job God wants and
                        deems important –

                We spend all our time and energy fighting
                    authority –
                    fighting the repair or what God
                        wants –
                    fighting for our will serving satan.

                We can walk upright, in peace doing
                    God's will or
                    we can stumble, fight and try to
                    prove we are right when we
                    oppose God's will.

                God gives us grace to do good if we ask
                    Him –
                    we have a free will to cooperate
                    with the grace God gives or
                    not.
   

Deuteronomy 30: 19-20

Today, I call heaven and earth to witness against you: I am offering you life or death, blessing or curse. Choose life, then, so that you and your descendants may live, in the love of Yahweh your God, obeying his voice, holding fast to him; for in this your life consists, and on this depends the length of time that you stay in the country which Yahweh swore to your ancestors Abraham, Isaac and Jacob that he would give them.’

   

                R. We see jealousy in the Old Testament
                    Joseph and his brothers
                    Cain and Abel
                    Sarai and Hagar
                    Jacob and Esau

                We see the obedience of Abraham to
                    offer his son as a sacrifice

   

From the Apostles Manual

February 23, 1997
Sacrifice

R. When I go to Mass I offer a sacrifice. God wants our all. He wants to be first in our life. He asked Abraham to sacrifice his son.

Gen. 22:1-2, 9-13, 15-18:

It happened some time later that God put Abraham to the test. 'Abraham, Abraham!' he called. 'Here I am,' he replied. God said, 'Take your son, your only son, your beloved Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, where you are to offer him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I shall point out to you. '

When they arrived at the place which God had indicated to him, Abraham built an altar there, and arranged the wood. Then he bound his son and put him on the altar on top of the wood. Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to kill his son.

But the angel of Yahweh called to him from heaven. 'Abraham, Abraham!' he said. 'Here I am,' he replied. 'Do not raise your hand against the boy,' the angel said. 'Do not harm him, for now I know you fear God. You have not refused me your own beloved son.' Then looking up, Abraham saw a ram caught by its horns in a bush. Abraham took the ram and offered it as a burnt offering in place of his son.

The angel of Yahweh called Abraham a second time from heaven. 'I swear by my own self, Yahweh declares, that because you have done this, because you have not refused me your own beloved son, I will shower blessings on you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven and the grains of sand on the seashore. Your descendants will gain possession of the gates of their enemies. All nations on earth will bless themselves by your descendants, because you have obeyed my command.'

R. The Father gave His Son for us. This is how great the Father's love is for us.

When we go to the altar many times we are suffering. We want something really bad, but we know we love God the most. What the Father asks for us is to offer that which we are so attached to as a sacrifice, united to the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus. If we offer this sacrifice to Him, the Father will pour out blessings that will be divine blessings, greater than anything we could have here on earth.

The Mass is the perfect sacrifice we offer to the Father, in which God pours out His blessings and we are one with Him and with all others in a profound expression of love. God shares His divine love with us and we partake in an intense way in His divine loving capacity. In order to become one in Him and to feel His love like this, we must surrender ourselves and be open.

He told Abraham to offer his son. God gave him his son back. He wanted Abraham to love God above all things and people.

Jesus offered Himself as a sacrifice to the Father. This is the most pleasing sacrifice to the Father. If He gave His Son Who died for love of us, will He deny us when we unite our petitions with Jesus and offer these at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass?

He took them to the highest mountain and He was transfigured before them in the greatest light.

Mark 9:2-10:

Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John and led them up a high mountain on their own by themselves. There in their presence he was transfigured: his clothes became brilliantly white, whiter than any earthly bleacher could make them. Elijah appeared to them with Moses; and they were talking to Jesus. Then Peter spoke to Jesus, 'Rabbi,' he said, 'it is wonderful for us to be here; so let us make three shelters, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.' He did not know what to say; they were so frightened. And a cloud came, covering them in shadow; and from the cloud there came a voice, 'This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to him.' Then suddenly, when they looked round, they saw no one with them any more but only Jesus.

As they were coming down from the mountain he warned them to tell no one what they had seen, until after the Son of man had risen from the dead. They observed the warning faithfully, though among themselves they discussed what 'rising from the dead' could mean.

R. We go to the altar of sacrifice. The mountain to come, in which so many graces will flow, is the altar of sacrifice where the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is offered through the hands of consecrated priests.

We hear the Father say, "This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased, listen to Him." He is speaking to us. He is the Word. He is speaking in these messages. He is unveiling the Scriptures and speaking to us in plain talk. This is a great gift He is giving to us.

We are transformed in the Mass. We unite with the greatest sacrifice offered in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We have the most perfect sacrifice to offer to the Father when we offer this sacrifice. He gives us great blessings. We die to ourselves, we become white.

We must unite all of our sacrifices to this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being said all over the world. This is the greatest way to magnify all of our offerings - by uniting everything we do as an offering, a sacrifice to the Father in union with His Son.

                R. In looking at the Holocaust –
                    I see how bodies of innocent
                    were burned – naked and their
                    ashes went all over

                How could this evil be so corrupt?
                How could we tear a baby's limbs
                    in abortion

 

Excerpt of The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, by Louis J. Puhl, S.J. pp. 141-150  

313. RULES FOR DISCERNMENT OF SPIRITS
I

Rules for understanding to some extent the different movements produced in the soul and for recognizing those that are good to admit them, and those that are bad, to reject them. These rules are more suited to the first week
  

314.  I.  In the case of those who go from one mortal sin to another, the enemy is ordinarily accustomed to propose apparent pleasures. He fills their imagination with sensual delights and gratifications, the more readily to keep them in their vices and increase the number of their sins.

    With such persons the good spirit uses a method which is the reverse of the above. Making use of the light of reason, he will rouse the sting of conscience and fill them with remorse.

315.  2.  In the case of those who go on earnestly striving to cleanse their souls from sin and who seek to rise in the service of God our Lord to greater perfection, the method pursued is the opposite of that mentioned in the first rule.

    Then it is characteristic of the evil spirit to harass with anxiety, to afflict with sadness, to raise obstacles backed by fallacious reasonings that disturb the soul. Thus he seeks to prevent the soul from advancing.

    It is characteristic of the good spirit, however, to give courage and strength, consolations, tears, inspirations, and peace. This He does by making all easy, by removing all obstacles so that the soul goes forward in doing good.

316.  3.  SPIRITUAL CONSOLATION.  I call it consolation when an interior movement is aroused in the soul, by which it is inflamed with love of its Creator and Lord, and as a consequence, can love no creature on the face of the earth for its own sake, but only in the Creator of them all. It is likewise consolation when one sheds tears that move to the love of God, whether it be because of sorrow for sins, or because of the sufferings of Christ our Lord, or for any other reason that is immediately directed to the praise and service of God. Finally, I call consolation every increase of faith, hope, and love, and all interior joy that invites and attracts to what is heavenly and to the salvation of one's soul by filling it with peace and quiet in its Creator and Lord.

317.  4.  SPIRITUAL DESOLATION.  I call desolation what is entirely the opposite of what is described in the third rule, as darkness of soul, turmoil of spirit, inclination to what is low and earthly, restlessness rising from many disturbances and temptations which lead to want of faith, want of hope, want of love. The soul is wholly slothful, tepid, sad, and separated, as it were, from its Creator and Lord. For just as consolation is the opposite of desolation, so the thoughts that spring from consolation are the opposite of those that spring from desolation.

318.  5.  In time of desolation we should never make any change, but remain firm and constant in the resolution and decision which guided us the day before the desolation, or in the decision to which we adhered in the preceding consolation. For just as in consolation the good spirit guides and counsels us, so in desolation the evil spirit guides and counsels. Following his counsels we can never find the way to a right decision.

319.  6.  Though in desolation we must never change our former resolutions, it will be very advantageous to intensify our activity against the desolation. We can insist more upon prayer, upon meditation, and on much examination of ourselves. We can make an effort in a suitable way to do some penance.

320.  7.  When one is in desolation, he should be mindful that God has left him to his natural powers to resist the different agitations and temptations of the enemy in order to try him. He can resist with the help of God, which always remains, though he may not clearly perceive it. For though God has taken from him the abundance of fervor and overflowing love and the intensity of His favors, nevertheless, he has sufficient grace for eternal salvation.

321.  8.  When one is in desolation, he should strive to persevere in patience. This reacts against the vexations that have overtaken him. Let him consider, too, that consolation will soon return, and in the meantime, he must diligently use the means against desolation which have been given in the sixth rule.

322.  9.  The principal reasons why we suffer from desolation are three:

    The first is because we have been tepid and slothful or negligent in our exercises of piety, and so through our own fault spiritual consolation has been taken away from us.

    The second reason is because God wishes to try us, to see how much we are worth, and how much we will advance in His service and praise when left without the generous reward of consolations and signal favors.

    The third reason is because God wishes to give us a true knowledge and understanding of ourselves, so that we may have an intimate perception of the fact that it is not within our power to acquire and attain great devotion, intense love, tears, or any other spiritual consolation; but that all this is the gift and grace of God our Lord. God does not wish us to build on the property of another, to rise up in spirit in a certain pride and vainglory and attribute to ourselves the devotion and other effects of spiritual consolation.

323.  10.  When one enjoys consolation, let him consider how he will conduct himself during the time of ensuing desolation, and store up a supply of strength as defense against that day.

324.  11.  He who enjoys consolation should take care to humble himself and lower himself as much as possible. Let him recall how little he is able to do in time of desolation, when he is left without such grace or consolation.

    On the other hand, one who suffers desolation should remember that by making use of the sufficient grace offered him, he can do much to withstand all his enemies. Let him find his strength in his Creator and Lord.

325.  12.  The enemy conducts himself as a woman. He is a weakling before a show of strength, and a tyrant if he has his will. It is characteristic of a woman in a quarrel with a man to lose courage and take to flight if the man shows that he is determined and fearless. However, if the man loses courage and begins to flee, the anger, vindictiveness, and rage of the woman surge up and know no bounds. In the same way, the enemy becomes weak, loses courage, and turns to flight with his seductions as soon as one leading a spiritual life faces his temptations boldly, and does exactly the opposite of what he suggests. However, if one begins to be afraid and to lose courage in temptations, no wild animal on earth can be more fierce than the enemy of our human nature. He will carry out his perverse intentions with consummate malice.

326.  13.  Our enemy may also be compared in his manner of acting to a false lover. He seeks to remain hidden and does not want to be discovered. If such a lover speaks with evil intention to the daughter of a good father, or to the wife of a good husband, and seeks to seduce them, he wants his words and solicitations kept secret. He is greatly displeased if his evil suggestions and depraved intentions are revealed by the daughter to her father, or by the wife to her husband. Then he readily sees he will not succeed in what he has begun. In the same way, when the enemy of our human nature tempts a just soul with his wiles and seductions, he earnestly desires that they be received secretly and kept secret. But if one manifests them to a confessor, or to some other spiritual person who understands his deceits and malicious designs, the evil one is very much vexed. For he knows that he cannot succeed in his evil undertaking, once his evident deceits have been revealed.

327.  14.  The conduct of our enemy may also be compared to the tactics of a leader intent upon seizing and plundering a position he desires. A commander and leader of an army will encamp, explore the fortifications and defenses of the stronghold, and attack at the weakest point. In the same way, the enemy of our human nature investigates from every side all our virtues, theological, cardinal, and moral. Where he finds the defenses of eternal salvation weakest and most deficient, there he attacks and tries to take us by storm.

       

328. RULES FOR DISCERNMENT OF SPIRITS
II

Further rules for understanding the different movements produced in the soul. They serve for a more accurate discernment of spirits and are more suitable for the second week
  

329.  I.  It is characteristic of God and His Angels, when they act upon the soul, to give true happiness and spiritual joy, and to banish all the sadness and disturbances which are caused by the enemy.
   It is characteristic of the evil one to fight against such happiness and consolation by proposing fallacious reasonings, subtilties, and continual deceptions.

330.  2.  God alone can give consolation to the soul without any previous cause. It belongs solely to the Creator to come into a soul, to leave it, to act upon it, to draw it wholly to the love of His Divine Majesty. I said without previous cause, that is, without any preceding perception or knowledge of any subject by which a soul might be led to such a consolation through its own acts of intellect and will.

331.  3.  If a cause precedes, both the good angel and the evil spirit can give consolation to a soul, but for a quite different purpose. The good angel consoles for the progress of the soul, that it may advance and rise to what is more perfect. The evil spirit consoles for purposes that are the contrary, and that afterwards he might draw the soul to his own perverse intentions and wickedness.

332.  4.  It is a mark of the evil spirit to assume the appearance of an angel of light. He begins by suggesting thoughts that are suited to a devout soul, and ends by suggesting his own. For example, he will suggest holy and pious thoughts that are wholly in conformity with the sanctity of the soul. Afterwards, he will endeavor little by little to end by drawing the soul into his hidden snares and evil designs.

333.  5.  We must carefully observe the whole course of our thoughts. If the beginning and middle and end of the course of thoughts are wholly good and directed to what is entirely right, it is a sign that they are from the good angel. But the course of thoughts suggested to us may terminate in something evil, or distracting, or less good than the soul had formerly proposed to do. Again, it may end in what weakens the soul, or disquiets it; or by destroying the peace, tranquility, and quiet which it had before, it may cause disturbance to the soul. These things are a clear sign that the thoughts are proceeding from the evil spirit, the enemy of our progress and eternal salvation.

334.  6.  When the enemy of our human nature has been detected and recognized by the trail of evil marking his course and by the wicked end to which he leads us, it will be profitable for one who has been tempted to review immediately the whole course of the temptation. Let him consider the series of good thoughts, how they arose, how the evil one gradually attempted to make him step down from the state of spiritual delight and joy in which he was, till finally he drew him to his wicked designs. The purpose of this review is that once such an experience has been understood and carefully observed, we may guard ourselves for the future against the customary deceits of the enemy.

335.  7.  In souls that are progressing to greater perfection, the action of the good angel is delicate, gentle, delightful. It may be compared to a drop of water penetrating a sponge.
    The action of the evil spirit upon such souls is violent, noisy, and disturbing. It may be compared to a drop of water falling upon a stone.
    In souls that are going from bad to worse, the action of the spirits mentioned above is just the reverse. The reason for this is to be sought in the opposition or similarity of these souls to the different kinds of spirits. When the disposition is contrary to that of the spirits, they enter with noise and commotion that are easily perceived. When the disposition is similar to that of the spirits, they enter silently, as one coming into his own house when the doors are open.

336.  8.  When consolation is without previous cause, as was said, there can be no deception in it, since it can proceed from God our Lord only. But a spiritual person who has received such a consolation must consider it very attentively, and must cautiously distinguish the actual time of the consolation from the period which follows it. At such a time the soul is still fervent and favored with the grace and aftereffects of the consolation which has passed. In this second period the soul frequently forms various resolutions and plans which are not granted directly by God our Lord. They may come from our own reasoning on the relations of our concepts and on the consequences of our judgments, or they may come from the good or evil spirit. Hence, they must be carefully examined before they are given full approval and put into execution.

Guiding Light - Reflect on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light homily series - Reflect on the Word - Cycle B —  The Word leaves an impression on our souls. In my thoughts and reflections are born a more tangible understanding of these eternal concepts presented in the Gospels and the readings. Anyone can read a sentence, but not anyone can absorb it's true meaning. Truth, in this day and age, is almost a matter of opinion or individual entitlement. We believe that Christ's truth is our Roman Catholic Church. We, as priests, champion it's teachings; we are ambassadors for the Pope and Christ to those faces looking at us. We are the light by which our congregation reads to reflect upon real truth and we do it hand in hand. $15

Guiding Light - Steadfast to the Son
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle A of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

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 - Feed My Soul

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

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 - Focusing on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

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 - The Word Alive in Our Hearts

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.

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

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
