Jesus: I have spoken to you on the 22nd of the month concerning the Center and the Shepherds of Christ Movement. The Center will light up the darkened world. I ask you to spread the messages of My love in God's Blue Book. I am a burning fire filled with such love for men. My light will shine when hearts are joined in deepest love with My Heart.

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
should be presented together as a unit
because they are from January 1st, 1996 to March 31, 1996.

I would like the Parents and Children's Book
in Spanish printed with the Imprimatur.

            

                August 10, 2013

                R. The body is many members, but
                one. And no matter how you want
                to ignore a swollen leg, a cut somewhere,
                any disorder of the body – you know the
                pain, it can be pain day and night with
                a disorder, the mind knows something
                is wrong, the pain is felt, the mind
                knows and it can remain being
                swollen, the cut be open until one tries
                to heal it. You can't just throw
                that part of the body away and forget
                it – It is your body and it is part
                of your body in disorder.

                    So every part of the human body has its
                part to play and when in disorder it
                hurts the whole body with its pain,
                its inability to function, it can
                cripple like a leg, burn like a
                cut, hurt because of the thing
                being off what it would be if
                healthy.

                Jesus says: Get the point – I have
                called you in the Shepherds of Christ to tell
                the world of love and unity. A man had
                a wounded heart because of wounds
                done to him in love – in not being
                in touch with the truth of his
                betrayal he projected his anger
                in a way to act-it-out on
                another, innocent and a blessing
                from God. As long as he forced his
                hurtful way through force, he continued
                hurting the role he was to play
                in the building of the Kingdom.
                Love is giving from a generous
                heart to want unity in building
                up the family, the Church, the
                community.

                    Love is for the good of the other
                to lead them closer to God, if in
                anyway a person uses another
                acting-out revenge, anger, jealousy,
                envy, pride, one is not accepting
                the gifts given by God and is
                offending the God who shed His Blood
                for the sins being committed.
                What you do to others, you do to Me.
                A man whose reality is dark and
                needs to project anger on a whipping
                boy is hurting the body of Christ –
                an ailing cut, a swollen leg, a
                ulcerated stomach hurts the whole
                body.

                    One cannot ignore a stomach
                ulcer. What you don't know is
                this pressure you put on others to
                force your ways blocks the harmony
                in the body it is sent from. Pressure
                squeezing constant retaliation against
                another and blocks the flow of
                good healthy love, pumping positive
                vibrations from the heart to all
                cells in the body. A man choosing
                anger for 30, 40, 50 years which
                he acts out will not only pay for
                it spiritually opposing God's will –
                since anger, jealousy, envy, pride is
                a deadly sin –

                He will put a noose around his own
                neck, constrict the vessels in
                himself and suffer the consequences
                after years of opposing God's
                will for his own angry heart.

                I am God I cannot deceive nor
                    be deceived –

                What you do to your innocent
                    brothers – you are
                    doing in whipping Me
                    at the pillar.

                Only in seeking God's will, will
                    your clogged-up heart stop
                    hurting yourself first –
                    look at the angry faces of
                    the men who whipped Me –

                I am Jesus, the Son of God –
                    I suffered for your disobedience
                        to My Father –
                    I did the Father's will
                    I shed blood and
                    died for your sins

                A person attuned to Me
                    feels - all is well because
                    they trust in Me –

                A person angry is uptight
                    looking for things to
                    project their anger on
                    I am the Light of the
                        World –
                    Those who dwell in
                        Me – live in
                        My light –

                Satan comes to
                    trip up the just man –

                Satan is combattal –

                I am meek and gentle of
                    Heart –

                I give Myself –
                I give My letters of love
                    in the Blue Books
                    for the
                    members of the Body
                        of Christ –

                Look at the
                    little children of
                    the Church –

                How can you hide this
                    gift about the Church,
                    My bride and
                    the children of the Church?

                Teach them about being
                    members of the body of
                    Christ – loving, healthy,
                    pure and vibrant –

                Bringing My gift to
                    the troubled world –

                Satan wants you
                    caved-in, selfish,
                    bringing darkness
                    to the world –

                I am the Light of the World –

                I died on a cross for your sins –

                Live in My love –

                Love is

 

1 Corinthians 13: 1-13  

Though I command languages both human and angelic—if I speak without love, I am no more than a gong booming or a cymbal clashing. And though I have the power of prophecy, to penetrate all mysteries and knowledge, and though I have all the faith necessary to move mountains—if I am without love, I am nothing. Though I should give away to the poor all that I possess, and even give up my body to be burned—if I am without love, it will do me no good whatever. 

    Love is always patient and kind; love is never jealous; love is not boastful or conceited, it is never rude and never seeks its own advantage, it does not take offence or store up grievances. Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but finds its joy in the truth. It is always ready to make allowances, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes. 

    Love never comes to an end. But if there are prophecies, they will be done away with; if tongues, they will fall silent; and if knowledge, it will be done away with. For we know only imperfectly, and we prophesy imperfectly; but once perfection comes, all imperfect things will be done away with. When I was a child, I used to talk like a child, and see things as a child does, and think like a child; but now that I have become an adult, I have finished with all childish ways. Now we see only reflections in a mirror, mere riddles, but then we shall be seeing face to face. Now I can know only imperfectly; but then I shall know just as fully as I am myself known. 

    As it is, these remain: faith, hope and love, the three of them; and the greatest of them is love.

Jesus' Heart Has No Bounds

R. Jesus' Heart is without bounds. Jesus is one with the Father. Once I am in Jesus' Heart, it is an endless cavern, I am one with the Father.

    Mary is one with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit – She is the singular vessel. The Holy Spirit is the Spouse of Mary. We cannot fathom the pure love of Mary and the Holy Spirit. We cannot ever realize the love of God, but to ponder it, helps us realize how God loves us. God is love.

Excerpt from Response to God's Love by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

... In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

    The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ.

 

R. Mary conceived Jesus in her womb by the power of the Holy Spirit. It is in Mary's heart the Holy Spirit works in the fire of God's love to make us more like Jesus.

    I see myself enclosed in red, with glowing embers. I know the action of the Holy Spirit, the flow of God's love permeating my whole being. I am enclosed in the heart of Mary. The Holy Spirit has filled her heart. The element of love knows no bounds - love is unbounded. So, to exist in Mary's heart is a presence for me of red in a space of love, it is unbounded. The Holy Spirit wants to make me holy. I must let go and be docile to His touch, open, yielding. The Holy Spirit fills my being with God's love. I exist in God, wrapped in His embrace.

    I go to the red cavern of love of the Two Hearts, I want to be wrapped in God's embrace – I exist IN HIM!! Presence and Love, existing IN HIM. There is an endless depth, there are no bounds on its length, without limits. In uniting in this immense presence, I am united to the presence of the Father. This is all spontaneous – the presence is the presence of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I am one in God. I know and love the Persons of the Trinity.

    My desire is to penetrate deeper and deeper into this endless abyss of God's burning love. It is an endless thirst, knowing there is more and wanting more and more and more, knowing God's presence. Sometimes my heart begs and begs and thirsts for more; sometimes I am overwhelmed with the love and feel such satisfaction. On December 15th I knew the presence and united in such a way I was so happy. I was caught up in Him in such a way. I was overwhelmed with His presence.

Song: Your Presence Pervades My Soul

Jesus Points to His Heart

R. I see His hands pointing to His Heart. His Heart was pierced with wounds, His hands were pierced and His Heart, lanced – and He shows us His Heart was a human Heart. He took a human Heart. It was filled with Divine Love. Jesus was conceived in Mary's womb through the power of the Holy Spirit, intimate love, love beyond our knowledge or capability of knowing. These are the Hearts of deepest love – His human Heart filled with Divine Love.

    It is in uniting to these Two Hearts that our hearts will reach a high level of love. Their Hearts are the most perfect - the more we unite to Their Hearts, in the Holy Spirit, the more we know love. There is a whole world that is dying in their hearts – that needs more than surface love – that needs deep love.

    Words: so much of our love of God is words – He wants our all. Jesus gave Himself – this is the love Jesus has for us. Jesus wants us to give ourselves.

    The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass can be such intimate love. God gives us Himself. Jesus gives Himself! I give myself to the Father in the Holy Spirit.

A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

-Mass Book, December 27, 1995

R. The whole world is hungry – vile deeds will continue until the messages of His burning love are circulated. Hearts are dying, focusing outside their hearts, focusing on the world. Let's go to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary – So much LOVE!! The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present.

    Man's intimate love affair with God. Jesus is a Person. We unite with Him in deepest intimacy in the Holy Eucharist.

    I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, Jesus cries. Jesus cries: "I give you My Body, I give you My Blood, I want to feed you. I live in the Hearts of Men!"

    If I could reach beyond myself and be wrapped in the embrace of Your love – Your love given for me. My heart is so hungry to unite deeper to Him. My soul thirsts for Thee, Oh adorable Lord.

    I feel such pain for the offenses against God. He who is all worthy of all our love and such pain for the loss of so many souls.

Fr. Carter Talked on Fatima

R. This talk, given by Fr. Carter, in Denver, Colorado, is about the Fatima message and it's connection to the Shepherds of Christ Movement. He talks about consecrating our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and having a close union with Jesus.

  

January 5, 1996 - First Friday

Hold the Host High

R. Love is love. It is not sterile, dry and inactive – it is active. It is in our hearts. It is burning. It is longing. It is hurting and joy in your heart.

    I love the priest at the Consecration of the Mass, for it is then that I see him most united to Jesus. He says, "this is My Body, this is My Blood." The Father looks to the earth – He sees Jesus so one in the priest – at this moment, the priest united to Jesus in the sacrifice to the Father. I am so one in this moment. I am one with Jesus in the Holy Spirit - giving myself to the Father. I am so intently wrapped in this moment at the Consecration of the Mass, I long for the priest with his whole heart, his whole soul and his whole being to hold Jesus high and reverently, that I might linger in this moment, that I might adore Him in this moment.

    I die to myself and that which is not of Him. I want to be one in Him as a holy sacrifice and offer myself to the Father, in the Holy Spirit, united to Jesus. I pray for holiness. It is Through Him, With Him and In Him. I offer myself as a sacrifice to the Father. Jesus gives to me His Body and Blood in the Holy Eucharist. Jesus gives to me Himself: Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. This is the Bread of Life, the true bread come down from heaven. I want to die to my selfish ways that I may live more and more in Him.

    I am one in Him. I exist in Him. I am living in Him. As I walk, I walk in Him, I breathe in Him, I am in Him.

Sorrowful Mysteries
 
Before the Tabernacle

                The Agony in the Garden

Jesus: This is the most intimate rosary you will have with Me, My beloved ones. This is the First Friday. I come to you in a special way and I give to you abundant graces to join ever closer to My burning love.

1. Jesus: Put aside all of the distractions in your minds and in your hearts and focus totally on Me, My burning love. My Heart on-fire for love of You.

2. Jesus: You carry out My life, death and resurrection in your lives. As you live this day you experience My life in your life. Look back over all the sufferings that you have experienced in your lives and know that in all of those sufferings there were great gifts given from Me to you. My beloved ones, as you share in My sufferings, you know Me more and more. Think back to the deepest suffering that you have experienced and in that suffering, walk with Me through this rosary, through the Passion. Each mystery, a mystery and insight to God's love. Focus on Me and I will reveal to you many mysteries of My deep love for you.

3. R. He knelt in the Garden and He took upon Himself all the sins of all men from all time. Think of all the sins from the very beginning to this day and Jesus knew all men's sins in His Heart. He was wrapped in such agony and His sweat became as great drops of blood upon the ground. How senseless is this world today that it is caught up so much in the world and the Almighty God is alive and is here. Who hears the words that He speaks - the words of His love - the words for which the soul craves? Many ears have turned deaf and He is calling out to us, His beloved ones, to live His love in our lives. Through our example we preach the mightiest lesson of His love. We are being called to be saints, not be worldly. Let our hearts be filled with such love for God and others. God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit live in the graced baptized soul.

4. Hail Mary
5. Hail Mary
6. Hail Mary
7. Hail Mary
8. Hail Mary

9. R. In marriage, love is what every man promises to every woman, but only God can give us perfect love. It is in being rooted in His love that we will be satisfied. Nothing fills the starved soul but the love of God. He cries out over and over and over again to reach with our hearts, to know that He is alive, to be absorbed in His Divine love.

10. Jesus: Are you cold, are you empty, are you hungry? Where do you go when you are hungry? When there is nowhere that you are satisfied, I am waiting for you to come to be with Me and I will outpour to you My abundant love. I love you, I love you, I love you. I am with you in a special way. It is in the rosary that you will unite more deeply to My burning love on fire for love of you.

 

The Scourging at the Pillar

R. This rosary on the fifth of the month is in honor of the five blasphemies against the Blessed Mother and the five wounds of Christ. Let us meditate on His wounds as we pray this rosary. Let us think about the wounds on His arms and His back. The wounds that those He loved gave to Him.

1. R. They seized Him and they led Him away as a common criminal and they tied Him to a pillar, His hands tied. Do you notice His surrender? He did not fight back. Every time we see pictures of Jesus, we see Him surrendering to everything that happened to Him.

2. R. We should realize that God is omnipotent and the immensity of His love that He loved us so much that He came to this earth and He took on a human body. God is all powerful and controls our every breath and our every heartbeat and He wants to be so intimately one with us. God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within our graced baptized soul. Why do we fear when He is with us and loves us so much and is attentive to our every need?

3. R. The mystery of God's love – God is the ultimate mystery.

Excerpt from Response to God's Love by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

... In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

    The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ.
 

R. Perfect love - God communicates His love to us through His Son Jesus who took on human flesh for love of us. Jesus took on a human nature. This is how God loves us. Look how He is mistreated this day by those He loves so dearly!

4. R. Jesus comes and appears and shows us His Heart, surrounded with a crown of thorns. He suffered indifference, the neglect and hate from those He loves. Can we, in this rosary, tell the beloved Heart of Jesus that we want to help make reparation to His Heart for the indifference, neglect and hatred against Him, and ask Him to help us to love Him more? To see that the greatest act that we can perform on this earth is the act of loving God. This is why we were created, to know, love, and serve God with all our hearts, and love our neighbors as ourselves. Oh burning Heart, Oh love Divine, let us love You more...

5. R. Jesus stood at the pillar, tied and helpless. This was the Almighty God, He could have at any second stopped the treatment. Jesus allowed Himself to be treated this way by those He loved. The weapons they used tore deeply into His flesh and made Him bleed. Meditate on the wounds that were so deep in Jesus' body, that tore Jesus' skin, deep into Jesus' body, it made Him bleed!

6. R. Jesus asks us to carry out His life, death and resurrection in our lives. God allows us to suffer. Much of our suffering can be mental torment, going through the everyday, ordinary events that are very hard sometimes, to live through it. We are not standing at the pillar but we can identify with His suffering whenever we suffer. Jesus allows us to live His life, death and resurrection in our lives. Let us thank Him for the great gifts He gives to us to allow us to share in His life in baptism. Sufferings can draw us closer to Him. We must identify with Jesus when we are racked with pain.

7. R. We know God is always with us, even when it is really hard.

8. R. You reached down and You lifted me up. You kissed my wounds and You breathed into my soul. I knew, God, that You were there with Your Divine love.

9. R. Minute by minute, second by second, Jesus is attentive to our every need, our every heartbeat and He knows the number of hairs on our head. The Almighty God is truly present in this room with us, in the Eucharist, no less present than the day He walked this earth. Our hearts can be in turmoil and in fear many times, yet we know He is there with us. We know the white heat of His love. Let us put aside all of the distractions in our hearts and give to Him a most ardent love. Beg Him to help us to love Him deeper.

10. Jesus: Are you empty? Where do you go when you are empty, My beloved ones, for it is only in My Heart that you will be filled! You search and you wonder and you look - you look at a senseless world that has forgotten God and where do they turn as they look for more and more and more? Nothing on the face of this earth feeds the starved soul but the love of God. If you are hungry, come to Me and I will give you rest.

Song: A Song from Jesus

 

Jesus is Crowned with Thorns

Jesus: Are you racked with pain? They pounded into My head a sharp crown of piercing thorns and the blood ran down My face, into My eyes and My ears. How many mental torments do you go through, all through the day? How many sufferings in your heart? Will you long for love? Nothing will fill that craving in your hearts. Nothing...and I cry out from the tabernacle, "I am longing and I am thirsting for you. I have all that you need. Come to Me and I will give you rest!"

1. Song: Come to Me, all who are weary, and find rest for your soul, Come to Me all who are burdened and I will comfort you.

Jesus: It is in your ordinariness, in living every moment of your day with love, that you will know peace and joy in your heart.

2. R. For 30 years on this earth Jesus lived the quiet life.

Jesus: It is in your ordinariness that you can prepare for sainthood. Accepting all of those things that I give to you, responding with love, I ask this of you, My dear ones. To spend every moment doing the Father's will and loving all your brothers as I live in you and minister to them through you. Put on Christ in all of your actions and let Me minister to this world that is hurting and in pain, through you.

3. Jesus: See as I see. Ask to love as I love. Ask and you shall receive for I am attentive to all of your needs.

R. Dear Holy Spirit, descend upon us and fill our hearts with the fire of God's love. That we too will love as you want us to love this day.

4. R. They spit on Jesus and they mocked Jesus. They said cruel things to Jesus, and Jesus took everything that they gave to Him and He did not holler back. Jesus accepted what they gave Him. He comes to show us the way. How many times are we ridiculed and it wouldn't do us any good to answer back? His way was silent suffering many times. Jesus accepted the sufferings. Jesus carried His cross. Jesus' way is the way of love. Jesus' Heart was overwhelmed with love for those who persecuted Him and put Him to death!

5. Jesus: Is your heart torn within your chest, My beloved ones? Do you see the world in its coldness? Do you see the evil that exists? You are the light that I am sending into this darkened world. It is through you that I will minister to this world. You must stay rooted in Me. It is in Me that I can minister to this world that is suffering and in pain.

6. R. And He mounted the cross - the Son of God, the Almighty God, Jesus, the Son of God gave His all that we could be saved. Jesus' way is love. Jesus gives to us a Heart of love and He asks us to come and dwell in His Heart that He can operate in us in this world. Jesus loves us. Jesus died for each person. He gave His life for all of us.

7. R. Dear Holy Spirit, I need the fire of God's love. I cannot love as You want me to love. I ask you to permeate my being and to fill me with the fire of God's love, to come and to change my heart that I may love more and more as Jesus loved.

Jesus: I call to you this day to carry out My life, death and resurrection in your lives. When you are down on the ground and you are suffering and in pain, I am there. I am attentive to your every need. Let go and surrender and let Me fill you with My Divine Love.

8. R. I went to the heart of Mary. Christ was formed in the womb of Mary, I too am formed more and more in the image and likeness of God in Mary's Immaculate Heart - my spiritual womb. I want to be more and more like Jesus, through the action of the Holy Spirit. We are sanctified through this action of the Holy Spirit. We are made more holy. We unite deeper and deeper in the burning abyss of the Heart of Jesus, the Heart of endless love!

9. R. And it is in this red cavern of His Divine Love that we unite to our beloved Father. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one. We are united more deeply to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, by dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Let us consecrate our hearts to Them and ask Them to help us to dwell in Their Hearts. The world is cold and dark. When we are persecuted and there is not any place to go, let us go to Their Hearts - this is our refuge.

Song: I am your Sacred Heart

10. R. Think of how it is to have a small cut and think of how it was for Jesus to have thorns pounded into His head and have blood pouring down His face. This is the love that He has for us, His Sacred Head, surrounded by a crown of piercing thorns. Let us see You and know Your love, for we are blind and do not realize that what we seek is Your Divine love. We search and we wonder and we are not satisfied. Only You will satisfy the craving in our soul. Let us go to You all through the day. Spend 'little' moments talking to You. Spend time every day alone with You, as we would with any person that we love deeply.

Song: God's Love

 

Jesus Carried His Cross

R. Jesus took all the sins of the world upon Himself and He carried the cross on His back.

1. R. They mocked Him and they poked at Him and they pushed Him and He fell to the ground - always the look of love and peace on His face. In the greatest sufferings He remained at peace for He knew the Father's will. The Father loves us with the deepest love for He created us and there is not any other person that is like us that can carry out the plan that the Father has for us. Let us go to the Heart of Jesus for it is there that we unite more deeply to the love of the Father.

2. Song: I am Your Sacred Heart

R. And He came to this earth and He gave His life that we would be saved and we would be with Him forever and ever in Heaven, in deepest union with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Song: I am Your Sacred Heart

Jesus: Are you hungry? What do you need to feed your starved soul?

3. Jesus: Look at your world, America! Do you see the violence and the hatred? Do you see the children that are murdered in the womb of their mother? This is the hunger of your world. You are My faithful ones that I am sending out to this world to carry the messages of My burning love. Open your heart wide for I am giving to you abundant graces to join ever closer to My Divine love, graces given to you, My precious souls. Open your heart and let Me fill you with My Divine Love.

4. Jesus: Many are called but few are chosen. You have been chosen to join in the deepest love with Me. Suffer. I carried My cross on My back. I know you carry your crosses this day. Come and unite with Me. These are great gifts, given to you, that you will grow deeper in your life in Me. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God and I give to you from My abundant love.

5. Jesus: When you fell to the ground and your chin was skinned, did you know that it was in that moment that I was closest to you, that it was in that moment that you turned to Me? Did you know that it was in that moment that you shared your suffering with Me? In sharing in My suffering you knew Me, deeper and deeper. Thank God for all that you are given, for these are great gifts, given from God who loves you!

6. R. We see His Heart surrounded with a crown of thorns, but during His bitter Passion He was comforted so by our acts of love that we give to Him this day.

Jesus: Will you help make reparation to My Heart for the offenses committed against Me and My Father and the Holy Spirit? Will you come and tell us of your love? I wait and I long for your love. I wait to hear words from your lips that you love Me!

7. R. I am so one with Jesus and Jesus took me to the deepest chamber of His Heart. His Heart is an endless abyss of burning love. I united with love itself. In that moment there was not any wanting or longing. There was not fear in my heart, for I knew the love of the Almighty God and to know His love is to feel secure in Him.

8. R. The love that Jesus has for us is such love. See Him on the ground with the cross on His back, covered with blood and wounds all over His body, such love Jesus has for us. Jesus says: "I give to you this love this day and so many turn their backs on Me. What more do you want?"

9. Song: Come to Me all who are weary and find rest for your soul. Come to Me all who are burdened I will comfort thee.

R. Jesus had the look of perfect peace on His face. Mary and Jesus always complied to the will of the Father, for it is in living in His will that we will have peace and joy in our lives. Even in the midst of suffering – we will have this peace and joy.

10. Hail Mary

 

The Crucifixion

1. R. They pounded into Jesus' hands sharp nails and Jesus' feet were nailed to the cross. Jesus' head was crowned with thorns. These are the wounds He suffered for love of us. Nails that went all the way through His hands and His feet! We whimper and complain about the little sufferings that we have in our life – He shows us His hands and His feet!

2. R. Jesus' way is love. Jesus' way is sacrifice. Jesus sacrificed Himself for love of us. It is in every Mass that we unite in this oneness. We suffer - we identify this with His suffering. We unite in the Mass the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present. We mystically mount the cross with Him, as we climb with Jesus on the cross and spread our arms and offer ourselves as a sacrifice to the Father. The Father is most pleased. As we die to ourselves in the ways that are not like God, as we give our all to be as the Father intended us to be - that is when the Father is most pleased. In the sacrifice, we are united in deepest love with Him. In Communion, He gives Himself to us in this act of most intimate love, Jesus cries out for us to give ourselves to Him. This is a deep act of intimate love. In the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist He gives Himself to us and we give ourselves to Him, this is a most intimate act of love for Divinity is united with us and it is at this time when He gives Himself to us that we receive such abundant graces.

3. R. Death/Resurrection - that permeates our lives as we die each day in our struggles and we rise to new life. As we go to each Mass and we die with Him on the cross and we receive the bread of life, the true bread come down from heaven. He gives this bread to us and we share in His Divine life!

4. Jesus: Are you hungry? What do you use to feed your starved souls?

Song: I Am the Bread of Life

R. The most intimate act of love – the Holy Eucharist. God gave Himself on the cross and He gives Himself, in His Divinity and humanity, in the Eucharist to us. In order to unite in the intimate act of love between us and God, we must surrender and give ourselves to Him. This is the most intimate act of love, this is what the starved soul craves, intimacy with God. It is that for which we were created. We were created to know, love and serve God. Nothing on the face of this earth will satisfy this craving in our soul.

5. Jesus: What do you use to feed your starved soul? What pleasures that are momentary? All things must be rooted in Me - rooted deeply in Me.

6. R. The Mass is the most perfect sacrifice offered to the Father. In uniting ourselves in oneness, we die with Him that we may rise in Him. Jesus is the Bread of Life and He gives us Himself to eat, to feed us. Bread and wine - that which nourishes our body is changed into His Body and Blood to nourish our souls. Nothing on the face of this earth feeds the starved soul but the love of God.

7. R. In the Mass we unite to the sacrifice of Jesus. The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary, sacramentally made present in the Mass. We want to be united in deep union with Him in the Holy Eucharist. The Father wants this. Let us be a holy sacrifice for it is most pleasing to the Father for us to unite to Jesus in the Mass. Every word in the Mass is so beautiful. It is God's great love given to us - Jesus gives Himself intimately to us in the Holy Eucharist. Let us at this time help make reparation to God for the indifference and injustice committed against Jesus' Heart, and help make reparation for the blasphemies against His Mother's heart.

8. R. On First Friday and First Saturday, They want so much for us to help make reparation to Their Hearts for the injustices done to God and to the Mother of God. We comfort Their Hearts with deep acts of love. This rosary is said on the 5th of the month in honor of the blasphemies against the Blessed Virgin, against her Motherhood, her Virginity, and against her Immaculate Conception, and for the five wounds of Jesus.

9. R. What flowed forth from His pierced Heart was blood and water; water, a symbol of Baptism. We are made sharers in His Divine life. Blood, a symbol of the Eucharist whereby our hungry souls are fed with His Body and Blood. As we see at Mass the priest raises up the Host and says "This is My Body". The priest raises the chalice and says, "This is My Blood." It is here Jesus says to us, I give you Myself. How can you walk around with such irreverence? You are My chosen ones that will carry this message to the world and I am giving you such graces to be so close to Me, so that you will carry the message of love to others who want to love more in the deepest, deepest way. I give you love from the deepest recesses of My Heart! Come through this wound and you will know My Divine life, My Divine love. You will know My Heart. I give you Myself.

Song: A Song from Jesus

Song: Take and Eat

R. This is the mystery of God's love, the mystery that was hidden until Jesus came to this world and it is revealed through Jesus Christ, His Son and He gives Himself to us in the moment when we receive Him in the Holy Eucharist. He reveals deep insights into the mystery of God's love. It is a grace given by God to those that He chooses. Let us treat Him with the deepest reverence and thank Him over and over again for the grace to share this deep intimacy with Him!

10. Hail Mary

Sorrowful Mysteries

The Agony in the Garden

R. I read a message from Fatima during a July apparition when Mary appeared and showed them a vision of hell. She said,

"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)

12. For background material on Fatima, I am particularly indebted to Our Lady of Fatima's Peace Plan from Heaven (Rockford: TAN Books and Publishers, Inc., 1983). pp.4-5.

1. Hail Mary
2. Hail Mary

R. Be with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. Put aside all of the distractions in your mind and open your heart wide.

Jesus: My dear, sweet children, I am Jesus and I come to you this day that you may be united closer to My Most Sacred Heart. I am giving to you abundant graces to unite in deepest union with My Heart. I ask you to be in the Garden with Me and experience My agony for all of My beloved ones.

3. Jesus: Open your heart and let Me penetrate your heart. Remove all the walls that surround your heart. Anything that blocks this union with Me, let go of all the grievances that you hold against others and feel the peace. Feel the peace deep within your soul as you forgive all others of their offenses against you. I knelt in the Garden and I saw before Me all the sins of all men from all time.

4. R. Think of how it is to love someone so deeply and how it hurts when they neglect you and treat you with indifference. It is the ones that we love so dearly that we are so hurt by. Jesus loves us with the deepest love and look how He is treated this day by those He loves. Look at how people use His name in vain. Look at the laughter at the name of Jesus, not respected and loved but used in video games with such disrespect. Jesus comes with a heart surrounded by a crown of thorns, the thorns pressing into His Heart for the indifference and ingratitude of sinful men and He calls out in this message how He loves us and wants to be so close to us. He is the light that shines in the dark night and He has called us to hear the message of His deep and burning love.

5. R. Jesus is alive! He is truly present in the tabernacles in this world in the consecrated host, in His Divinity and humanity, no less present than the day that He knelt in the garden. Jesus Christ waits for us to come and to be with Him. Many times He is alone in the tabernacle. Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist, the same as the day He walked the earth! Jesus waits and longs to be so close to us. Jesus is truly present in His Divinity and humanity and Jesus outpours abundant graces whereby we share deeper and deeper in His life and Jesus is neglected and forgotten by many He loves.

6. R. Jesus has chosen the religious in a special way and His Heart suffered the greatest agony for those that He had called and treated Him with such neglect and indifference.

7. R. The souls are so hungry this day. Look at the vile deeds in the world. Look at what children are being taught in the video games. The murder of an innocent baby in the womb of their mother! Jesus was in such agony that His sweat became as great drops of blood on the ground. I hear Him call out and call out and call out" Tell them, Rita, tell them. Tell them how I love. He says over and over again, "Unless the messages of His burning love are circulated in the Church, the bloodshed will continue." People that murder the babies within them are starved. We are starved to be fed with the burning love of God, not words, not lip service, but to know the love that He wants to give to us. Do we see Him as He hangs on the cross, dripping with blood, crowned with thorns? This is the love that God has – that He sent His only begotten Son into this world and He gave Himself as a sacrifice on the cross for us! But we speak of Him in surface love. Jesus shows us His Heart and Mary shows us her heart. Jesus says so few souls come to Me and outpour their burning love and how I wait in the tabernacle for them to come and to hear the words from their lips, "O, how I love You, Jesus. How I long for You, Jesus!"

Jesus wants an intimate relationship with us. Jesus gives Himself to us in His Divinity and humanity in the Holy Eucharist. Jesus wants us to give our all to Him.

8. R. How our acts of love comforted Him during His bitter Passion! The greatest agonies were not the agonies that He would experience to His body, but the agonies that He experienced to His Heart. In the garden He was bent over with pain for He was in agony to know all of the sins from all men, from all time.

9. Jesus: Open up your heart wide and I will give to you abundant graces so that you may unite deeper and deeper to My Heart. Come to My Heart, to the pure and tender heart of My loving Mother. It is through her heart that you will unite in the deepest recesses of My Heart.

10. Song: I Love You Jesus

The Scourging at the Pillar

Jesus: Surrender to Me and let go. This is a rosary from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. My dear ones, walk with Me through this Passion. Be there - experience as I experienced, the letting go, to allow those I loved to tie My hands and tie Me to the pillar.

1. Jesus: My Heart, consumed with the deepest love for you. I continued without resistance, to allow the men to beat Me.

2. Song: I Am Your Sacred Heart

3. R. Jesus stood at the pillar and they beat Him with such instruments that tore His flesh and made Him bleed. This is the love that He has for us, that God gave Himself and came to this earth. Jesus took on a human body and allowed Himself to be scourged unmercifully for love of us. Why do we not trust Him? Why do we not surrender ourselves to Him? Do we not see Jesus, covered with wounds, tied to the pillar? He is the way, the truth and the life. He shows us the way.

4. Jesus: It is in your surrender that you will have peace and joy in your lives. Give yourselves totally to God.

Jesus: My beloved ones, surrender, consecrate your hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Give yourselves to God to do always the Father's will.

R. It is in living in the Father's will that our peace and joy are found.

5. Hail Mary

6. R. We do not know what it is to unite with love itself. God wants us to be with Him for all eternity, united in the deepest love with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus has revealed to us insights into the mystery of His Divine love. Our souls search a barren desert looking for that which will satisfy us and nothing satisfies the starved soul but the love of God. Let us look at Jesus covered from head to toe with wounds, wide open wounds! Let us see Him tied to the pillar. Just think of the love that He has for us, that He subjected Himself to this treatment! Why do we not surrender and give Him our all? Jesus gave His all for us.

7. Jesus: You are the lights that I am sending into this world to shed the light in the dark night. Each one of you I have called here this day as I unite more deeply with your hearts. Will you give My love to this world that is hurting and in pain? I am Jesus. I shed My blood for you. This is the love that I have for you!

8. R. God is not far off. Jesus is alive and I hear Him call out: I am alive, I am alive, I am alive. Jesus tells me: Tell them when we are baptized we receive a sharing in His Divine life. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within us in a very special way when we remain in the state of grace. It is in this interior life that we will have peace and joy. We go to the world but we are united to Jesus in our hearts. Put together the minute pieces of your life to unite with the Almighty God who lives within you. Who tells us about Himself and tells us about ourselves? It takes time alone every day with Jesus to know Him more. If we love someone we want to spend time with that person. To have a love relationship with Jesus we must take the time to be alone with Him. Jesus is alive and He dwells in our hearts. Jesus remains in our hearts when we are in the state of grace in His Divinity. Jesus is truly present in His Divinity and humanity in the Holy Eucharist. Jesus is no less present than the day He was tied to the pillar. I hear Him call out: I am alive, I am alive, I am alive. Tell them I am alive!

9. R. Mary has said that it is so important that we pray the rosary, for as we meditate on Their lives, His life becomes more alive within us. Every word in the Scriptures becomes more meaningful. The rosary is so beautiful for we meditate on the lives of Jesus and Mary.

10. Song: A Song from Jesus

 

The Crowning with Thorns

Jesus: I call you to surrender. You will not let go. You hold on so tight to so many things. You must let go and put yourself totally in My hands. I am guarding you every moment. You are so filled with your fear and your incidentals. I love you with the deepest love – that I came to this earth and gave Myself for love of you. I am calling out to you this day to surrender, to take the wall down from around your heart and to open your heart wide. Let Me enter that We may join in the deepest intimacy with one another.

Sing: Little Child

1. R. They pounded into Jesus' head a sharp crown of piercing thorns and Jesus did not resist anything that they did to Him. They spit on Jesus and they mocked Jesus. This was the Almighty God, the Son of God, who did not resist.

2. R. Jesus' face and body were covered with blood. Meditate on the face of Jesus after the crowning with thorns. Look into His eyes and see the love that He has for us.

3. Song: O Sacred head surrounded, reviled and put to scorn

4. R. Would we allow someone to pound thorns into our heads, to spit on us, to tear our flesh? As we go through our lives we carry out His life, death and resurrection in our lives. All through the day we suffer little sufferings. How do we act as we struggle? Do we realize that He is allowing us to go through these sufferings, that we will go deeper in our life with Him? Do we realize that we follow the path that He trod? It is in the death that there is our resurrection. In our daily struggles all through the day that, if we stay rooted in Him, we grow deeper and deeper in our life with Him.

5. R. The price that He paid that we would share in His life!

6. R. How it comforts His Heart when we tell Him of our love for Him!

7. Song: I Love You Jesus

Jesus: In your every breath and your every heartbeat, I guard you and I watch you - as you walk and as you sleep. Do not be afraid for I am with you in all of your actions. I am guarding you and watching you. I am longing and waiting for you to tell Me of your love. My greatest agonies were not the agonies that I suffered to My body but the agonies that I suffered to My Heart. Buckled over in pain, My Heart, a Heart of endless love, and I wait for you, I wait for you through each moment of the day, to talk to Me, to be with Me so I may be joined ever closer to You and I want your love.

R. Let us not seek after senseless pleasures that do not satisfy the craving in our hearts which only You, God, can satisfy.

8. R. So many times we have such longing in our hearts to receive love. Such longing that our hearts hurt for wanting love. Jesus remains in the tabernacle - Jesus says to us over and over again how He is longing, longing for our love. We carry out His life, death and resurrection in our lives. We do not realize that this is the longing that He has for us - to come and to be with Him. We walk around with our hearts in pain, looking for that which will satisfy this longing when nothing, nothing on the face of this earth will satisfy the longing for love but the love of God! We were created to love God and to love one another. Our hearts are in pain until they rest in Him.

9. Song: I Love You Jesus

R. In marriage, every woman promises to every man that which only God can give. Share with God - great love. In this oneness, in all that you do, love in union with Jesus.

Jesus: I am Jesus. I love you with the deepest love. Come to Me, My sweet, little children and I will comfort you and shelter you in the deepest recesses of My Heart.

10. Hail Mary

 

The Carrying of the Cross

Jesus: You will be persecuted by many. I stood and they cried out, "Crucify Him, Crucify Him." In this world today you will be rejected by many that you love. You must come and dwell in My Heart, the Heart of endless love, waiting for you.

1. R. Jesus stumbled along with the cross on His back and He fell with His chin to the ground. His thoughts were always of us and how dearly He loves us.

2. R. How many times we fall each day. He is so close and we think that we are alone. How many times we go from Him. Jesus is in our hearts. All we have to do is go to our heart and dwell in His Heart. Go inside of ourselves to the red room, the interior chamber of His Heart and be protected from the cold, windy world - the world that is cruel and sometimes so hard to live in! That we can go to our heart and know always that if we are in the state of grace we have this deep presence of God within us: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and this is our shelter! Jesus showed us the way that He was persecuted: Jesus was whipped, Jesus was crowned with thorns - this is the way that He trod. The world tells us that we shouldn't have problems, but we see Jesus as He falls to the ground and struggles onward with the cross on His back. But, Jesus shows us, in carrying the cross and walking His way, that there is the Resurrection! It is in our sufferings that we are raised to deeper life in Him.

3. Jesus: I come to the simple. I come to those whose hearts are filled with love. Look into your heart. Let go of any anger or hatred toward any person in your life. Make your heart soft that I may enter into your heart and join with you in deepest love.

4. R. Look into Jesus' eyes as Mary looked into His eyes. Mary saw Jesus' head crowned with thorns and Jesus' face covered with blood. Mary saw in His eyes the love that He has, that He gave Himself for us. Why do we not look into His eyes? Why do we not reach deeper and deeper into our hearts to know Jesus more?

5. Song: I Am Your Sacred Heart

6. R. This is how the martyrs withstood what they suffered. They knew the interior presence of God. Think of how it is to embrace love, the burning love of God and to know that it is inside of us at every moment - that it is there that the more we go to the Eucharist, the more we sit in front of the tabernacle, the more He outpours His grace, His life and, the deeper we share in His Divine Life God is within our hearts!

7. Hail Mary
8. Hail Mary

9. R. Mary walked with Jesus as He walked with the cross on His back. Mary peered into Jesus' loving eyes and Jesus peered into Mary's eyes and in that look there was such intimacy between those Two Hearts. It is through Their Hearts, it is in dwelling in Their Hearts, that we will have our little heaven on earth. It is in going to the pure and tender heart of Mary that Mary places us in the deepest recesses of Jesus' Heart.
Let us go to Mary, our Mother and ask her to help us to love her Son, Jesus, as she loved her Son, Jesus, in her heart, to love the Father as she loved the Father, to love the Holy Spirit, her Spouse, as she loved the Holy Spirit. It is in the heart of Mary that the Holy Spirit acts to sanctify us and to make us more like Jesus. As we become more like Jesus, we unite deeper to Him and to the Father.

10. R. It is in dwelling in Their Hearts that we will have a little heaven here on earth.

 

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

R. Jesus gave Himself as a sacrifice on the cross. Jesus' hands were nailed. Jesus' feet were nailed, to the cross. Jesus came into this world in such poverty, in a cave. Jesus laid in a manger on bare wood and He died on bare wood on the cross.

1. Jesus: You hold on to such senseless things, My beloved ones. I am with you this day. Do not worry for I am guarding you in all of your actions. Stay rooted in My Heart of love and I will protect and comfort you in everything that you do. I am with you. I am Jesus, your beloved Savior. I came to this earth that you would have life and have it to the full.

2. R. Jesus came that we would have life. Jesus gave Himself as a sacrifice on the cross and gives Himself this day in the Holy Eucharist. I hear Jesus call out: "Tell them, I give them Myself and they run from the altar after Communion." It is in this act that we unite so deeply to our beloved Lord. Let us give ourselves to Him at the Consecration of the Mass. Let us die to ourselves that we will live deeper and deeper in Him. Let us unite in this sacrifice, become one in this sacrifice with Christ, to the Father. Let us die to all that is not like Him, that we will live in Him, that He gives Himself to us in the Holy Eucharist and we give ourselves to Him. This is the greatest act of intimacy between God and man and He gives Himself to us in the Eucharist and unites to us.

3. R. Let us treasure these moments when we are one with Him and let us at these moments help make reparation to the offenses against God and against the heart of Mary.

4. R. At Mass, the priest has the power to change bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Jesus through the Holy Spirit. This moment, this sacred moment, when Jesus acts through the priest, let us be so united in this sacrifice that we give ourselves. I hear Jesus call out, "This is My Body." He speaks at the Consecration, "This is My Body, tell them, I give them Myself, tell them."

5. R. Jesus mounted the cross, His body covered with wounds, His head crowned with thorns and He gave His all in total surrender. Jesus gave His all – our life paid for with the price of His blood and He is neglected and forgotten this day by so many of His beloved ones. Jesus waits in the tabernacle. He is as present as the day He walked this earth, in the Holy Eucharist, yet He is forgotten by many. Let us help make reparation to His adorable Heart for the great gift of Himself to us.

6. R. Dear Father, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in the Holy Spirit, with all the angels and the saints and the souls in Purgatory, we ask You to fill us with such grace that we will know love and serve You more. That, from this moment on, we will participate in the Mass more fully, that we will unite in deepest intimacy with You, Almighty God, each time that we go to receive the Eucharist, we ask You to help us to love You more. Such giving of Yourself to me. Help us to love You deeper and deeper.

    Dear Holy Spirit, fill us with the fire of God's love, to know that God's love is not inactive, that it is not only words but it is the love that God the Father gave His only begotten Son and that Jesus gave Himself as a sacrifice on the cross for love of us!

7. R. May we feel this action of the Holy Spirit within the heart of Mary as her heart dwells within the Heart of her Son. May we feel encompassed by the love of God, the Holy Spirit, acting in her heart, uniting us deeper to the Heart of Jesus and Jesus is one with the Father. May we feel this union with the Almighty God, deeper and deeper.

8. R. Jesus came into this world a helpless baby in the arms of His Mother and Mary held Him in her arms, under the cross. See Jesus' lifeless body in her arms. The Heart of Mary, a heart that knows and loves her Son –  Mary's heart that is sinless – a heart that is so close to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit! Let us unite with the Heart of Mary, to pray through her heart, to act through her heart, to love through her heart, that we may love God and love each other deeper and with a pure love.

9. Song: I Love You Jesus

R. The love of God - nothing on this earth compares to Divine love! The soul is only fed by the love of God. The soul is created to love God. God gives to us a sharing in His Divine life in Baptism. We will not be satisfied with anything but His Divine love. All things must be rooted in Him for He is the source of life and love. All life comes from the Father, in the Holy Spirit, through the pierced Heart of Jesus, through the heart of Mary, into us and we act as a channel as we give love to one another. Jesus is the source. Let us love God deeper and deeper every day.

10. Hail Mary

R. This is a rosary from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. May your hearts be filled more and more with His burning love. O, My Jesus, forgive us our sins!

 

January 7, 1996 - Epiphany

Cana and the Consecration

R. I was so aware of His little hands and the nails in His hands, as if I could put my finger through the holes in His hands. I was so aware of His hands on the cross, the nails tearing and pulling His hands.

    Jesus: Priest, Prophet, King. I went to a baptism: The words in the Baptism were so beautiful. What a gift - in baptism we receive a sharing in His life. We are commissioned to go out as a child of God and spread the good news. WOW!!

    I am so aware of the Child Jesus. Jesus, the Divine Almighty God.
       

God the Father sent His Son, Jesus for love of us. Jesus suffered! Why do we worry? God is with us. God is the light that shines and guides our way! We must turn our lives over to the Father – Live His Plan.

    We unite with Jesus in the Mass. We are members of the Body of Christ. I give my all to Him – cried wanting to give to Him my all and love Him so much, wanting to talk about the Mass, the Eucharist, this great gift! Jesus' first miracle was changing water into wine. I heard Him, in the Mass, say that this is so great a gift at every Mass where wine is changed into His Blood. We would be so happy to have witnessed water being changed into wine at Cana.

Mary was present and she was at the wedding feast of Cana and water was changed into wine. At Mass know Mary is there, at Mass and see the bread and wine changed into the Body and Blood of Jesus.

    When Jesus was on earth, the blood dripped from the wound pierced in His hand. The nails that went all the way through. Oh Jesus! I love You. Thanks!

    I love Him so much. I want to unite to Him so deeply. I have a constant vision of the red cavern of Jesus' Heart and with it is union with Mary's heart and the Holy Spirit and the Father. The wind may blow, I may be slaughtered, but I am one in Him!

Song: I Am Your Sacred Heart

R. The Mass is healing. I unite to Him and die to that which is not like Him and beg to be given a greater likeness to Him. In the Eucharist when He comes to me, I am so one in Him.

    I see the priest as Christ in the Mass and long for his intense realization of this gift, that the priest knows oneness with Jesus and the priest must celebrate the Mass with this realization. The priest, being so one with Jesus offering the Mass to the Father. The Father sees Christ uniting with the priest. The Father sees this! The Mass is indeed the Most Glorious Event!

    Jesus was covered with blood - death came - Jesus rose gloriously from the dead.

    I keep seeing the priest raise Jesus in the consecrated host at Mass. It makes me want to cry. That glorious moment in the Mass. Knowing the priest is one in Jesus. I see Jesus celebrate the Mass in the priest.

 

January 8, 1996 - 2:00 a. m.

Pain All at Once

R. I can focus on one pain. Jesus' pain was accumulative - all at once. I was awaken at 2:00am, with increased pain in my hands and feet. I stood up and got pain in both hands and feet – I could hardly take it, pain was so intense. He loves me with perfect unselfish love.

 

January 8, 1996 - 12:45 p. m.

I saw Jesus Transfigured

R. I went to Immaculata. The snow was so bad and the road to the church was blocked. I parked and walked to the church, knowing I could only stay a short while for my car was not parked in a legal spot. I went in and was overwhelmed with the presence of God. I kept seeing the statue of the Sacred Heart in the front of the church glow and look so beautiful and alive. I saw Jesus transfigured before me. I cried all the way to Mass, after this, at Fr. Carter's. I was so strongly connected to all Three Persons and realizing Their presence. It had penetrated my every cell and I felt Them in my every moment. I could see with eyes unveiled as I drove along. My car would go without any problems. Others looked perplexed, burdened, troubled and anxious. It was so apparent to me, being engulfed in this immense presence, how, if we see with His eyes, if we are one in Him, we have nothing to fear!

    Jesus looks down from above and says, "fear not, My little ones, I am with you when the sun ceases to shine and the moon is darkened and not shedding its light. I am the Light. I am what you seek. I am Mighty and ever vigilant for all your needs."

    This morning I was so aware of my espousal to Him. I was so aware of how He truly cares about all the thoughts I think and every detail of my life. Jesus cares for me as the most devoted spouse except so much more. I hug His crucifix and I love Him so much. I am espoused to You, God, and I love You with all my heart. Thanks for everything, even my toe nails that I do not understand. Thanks for every knuckle and cell in my body. Thank You for the beautiful snow and the new born baby. Thank You for allowing me to live Your life in my life and partake in the mystery of God's love.

 

January 9, 1996

I saw Jesus Transfigured Again

R. Today I prayed at All Saints, then left to attend a funeral and thought of going to Holy Cross-Immaculata and I prayed I would get in and pray. I am so close to God there. I went in and the statue was all aglow and around it is glistened in the deepest iridescent light and Jesus was transfigured before me.

    I was engulfed again in my love of God and cried so hard because I love Him so much. In this intimate act of giving myself totally to Him, my whole act was in emptying myself, wanting only to be lost in Him and united forever to Him in this most blissful moment. I turned myself over and was lost in Him, knowing His presence with me and knowing His deep love. The world stopped and I existed in Him, longing to forever stay there, so this moment would never end.

    I touched you, God and in this embrace I knew your unending love. I saw Your Body as if it was transfigured and glowing in light and I was lost in Thee.

    Love is giving. I am dependent on God for my love. I interact with others but I cannot and do not want to expect things in return.

    I love to be loving. Jesus loved all men with the deepest love. I, too, must love all with this love and see Christ in them. The love I have for others comes from the deep and burning love for God.

    To look at the world and to see with eyes unveiled - this is a great grace. To see the presence of God within each person and to love the Christ in them.

    The incarnation goes on in us. We are transformed more and more into the image and likeness of Jesus. We can be evocative and bring out the uniqueness in others and see them as God's special creation – to see with eyes unveiled, to see Christ in others.

    Priests may have a non-emotional relationship with Him. The First Friday and First Saturday devotions seem to be treated so lightly. The importance of the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart is not their focus as Jesus wants. Unless a sufficient number of people consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary we won't have peace in the world.

    What do priests talk about?

    People - need to consecrate their hearts to Jesus and Mary.

    What about Mary's message of Fatima?
    1) Consecrating hearts
    2) First Saturday
    3) Rosary
    4) Conversion

World War II started - who listened to Mary's plea?

    Mary is holding back the hand of God – Mary said this about 4 weeks ago. Mary said just a couple of weeks ago that she will be there in the rosary - not talking too much longer - but who is paying attention? She calls about the children - I am one person:
    1) consecrating their hearts - spread to all!!
    2) First Saturdays
    3) Praying the rosary

    Parents should tell their children all about what Mary said!
    Schools should tell the children about what Mary said and the rosary, but
        who is telling them about the love of God - the most important thing?
    Where are the youth seen praying?
    Is the modeling there?

 

January 9, 1996

Message for Shepherds of Christ Members from Mary

Mary: My beloved Shepherds of Christ Members, I am Mary your Mother. Very soon I will end my messages to this world. I have chosen you as my special messengers to reach the children of the world. The children need to see other children praying.

R. We are teaching our children in our homes about everything and so little about God. We share all the mechanics of the computer and television, telephones, everything that is so complicated. The children are taught such incidental information and are often not taught about the love of God.

    Do we share with our children our most intimate experiences with Jesus? We have spent our whole lives growing in our spiritual life but we keep much of this most valuable information to ourselves.

Mary: I am Mary, Your Mother. You are the parents of America. Teach your children about God. Teach them to pray the rosary. Teach them to consecrate their hearts to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I am calling out to my parents in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to reach your children with the love of God. I am asking you to encourage your children to join the Junior Shepherds of Christ movement and begin to pray the prayers of Consecration in your homes every day as a family. There will be peace in your homes and in your hearts when you consecrate your homes and your hearts to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

    Children need to pray the rosary and be taught about our lives. How can a child model their life after our lives when they do not know about our lives? I am asking you to help 'man the forces' and have my little army of children ready and marching on this earth. The weapon is their rosary, to help fight off Satan. Their hearts consecrated to our Hearts will lead them steadfastly ahead into the darkness that has clouded the youth in this country.

    Children need to pray. Children are given such bad examples. Children do not see other children praying and loving God. I am asking you parents in America to encourage your children to join the Junior Shepherds of Christ Movement.

    When children's hearts are consecrated to our Hearts they will fill this world with the light of God's love. Contact the children, the priests and religious and you will help save this world.

    The mighty medicine for this world is the burning love of my Son, Jesus. Will you help me contact the children and tell them how His Heart burns for love of them.

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
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

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
