August 12, 2010

                Love is an act of the
                    will —

                God gives us a free will
                God commands us to love
                Love is a choice

                Do you have a physical pain —
                    a chronic pain —
                    a pain that won't go away —

                What of pain in the heart caused
                    by wounds — you did not
                    heal

                Chronic pain — when others do nothing to
                    you and you with your chronic pain
                    reach out like a wounded dog
                    in the street —

                What will a bleeding wounded
                    dog do if even a doctor
                    of vet approaches —

                They will attack them —

                People who are wounded and hurt
                    can attack innocent others —

                Love is a choice —
                Forgiving is a choice —
                Asking for healing is a choice —

                Little babies are so cute — such a gift
                despite the abortions — God still
                give precious babies to many
                loving couples —

                    Kindness
                    Love
                    Love is a choice

                    Love is an act of our will —
                    We can choose love or hate —
                        indifference —

                We can lose someone because of death —
                    we can lose someone's love who
                    betrayed us —
                We can love those still alive and with us today

                Or we can treat those with us
                    with anger as we act out our
                    bitterness due to old wounds
                    and betrayals — We must
                    move from woundedness to
                    healing and loving with those God
                    gives us today to live with.

                Little babies hands
                Little babies feet
                Jesus was a little baby —

                God gives us the sacrament of
                    baptism —

                A sharing in His life —
                Our task is to live a holy life —
                Not to fear
 

  1. 1 John 4: 17-21
  2. Love comes to its perfection in us when we can face the Day of Judgement fearlessly, because even in this world we have become as he is. In love there is no room for fear, but perfect love drives out fear, because fear implies punishment and no one who is afraid has come to perfection in love. Let us love, then, because he first loved us. Anyone who says 'I love God' and hates his brother, is a liar, since whoever does not love the brother whom he can see cannot love God whom he has not seen. Indeed this is the commandment we have received from him, that whoever loves God, must also love his brother.

    

                God gives us our vocation to
                    love Him —
                    to love others
                    to be more perfected ourselves —

                What a gift we are — if we live
                    as a gift to the world —

                Love —
                God wants us to love

                God knows how short our life is —
                    God wants us to love —

                We can learn all this "stuff"
                    and never learn to love —

                We are to turn our wills over
                    to God —

                God wants us to love
                    loving is an act of the will —
                    Love is a choice

                My writings - my gifts given from
                    God — Fr. Carter's writings are
                    Gifts from God —

                Fr. Carter said the Blue Books were
                    as much his as mine —

                    Family life is the opportunity
                to learn to love
                to give our hearts to others
                to die to selfishness —
                to be strong like Mary in our
                    vocation —

                Mary lived her vocation serving
                    God —

                Mary said 'yes'

                Love — a smile of love —
                    doing God's will because
                    we love Him —

                We want to love Him

                Little children need to know
                    about love —

                God has called us to help renew
                    the Church and the world
                    in the Shepherds of Christ

                Affection
                Affection for God

                Loving the souls Jesus died for —

                Little children want to
                    feel secure —

                Mary: Oh my children help me —
                    Oh my children help me for the
                        little ones —

                    So cute you are my precious
                        soul —

                    I love you so much

                R. We feed babies, we care for
                    babies, we love babies —
                God loves us like His little babies —

                Thank You God for Your love —
                Thank You for our friends

                Remember all those moments
                    of love —
                    hold onto them with
                    affection —

                Joy at a beautiful flower —
                A moment —
                Life is so short —
                Why ignore these moments —
                God gives us our life —
                God created us —
                We were uniquely created —
                God loves us so much —

                Only God can satisfy the
                    craving we have
                    inside —

                God alone can satisfy us —

                If we go to heaven - we
                    will have the beatific
                    vision and the fullness of
                    life.

 

May 19, 1992

                            R. Dear Jesus,

                            I can never live the moments of this day again.

                            When I go to bed tonight they will be gone forever.

                            I must treasure each moment I have right now because I can never have it back again.

                            Thanks for this thought.

                            I love You Jesus
                            I love You Holy Spirit
                            I love You God the Father 

 

                Song: Live This Day

                When we are dying it will
                    be too late to come
                    back and relive the
                    moments we said
                    'no' to living in happiness —
                    we said 'no' to God's will —

                    When we die if we serve
                God we can go to heaven —
                God wants us to pray —
                God wants us to have faith —
                God wants us to believe in miracles
                God is with us —

                God wants us to be His
                    witnesses of hope in
                    the world —

                To pray to Our Lady —

                Out of suffering — God can bring
                    great light — depending
                    how the person suffers —

                Mothers were called to carry
                    babies and to love them —

                Mary is our spiritual Mother —
                Little babies are so dependent
                    on love —

                God called us to love —
                Love is a choice —
    

 

                We will have pain —
                We are to live rooted in God —
                We will all die —

                So cute a little baby —

                Jesus took on flesh and came
                    a little baby

                Love is a choice —

                God calls us
                We are the brides of Christ —
                We are to be holy
                Our life is so short —

                Life on earth is promised
                    to no man —

    

Cardinal Newman said

                    "... everyone who breathes, high and low,
                    educated and ignorant, young and old, man and woman,
                    has a mission, has a work. We are not sent
                    into this world for nothing; we are not born at
                    random. . . God sees every one of us;
                    He creates every soul, He lodges it in
                    a body, one by one, for a purpose. He needs,
                    He deigns to need, every one of us.
                    He has an end for each of us... we are
                    placed in our different ranks and stations, not to
                    get what we can out of them for ourselves, but to
                    labor in them for Him, as He rejoiced to do His work,
                    we must rejoice in ours also.
"

Prayer from St. Ignatius

Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
To give and not to count the cost;
To fight and not to heed the wounds;
To toil and not to seek for rest;
To labor and not to ask for any reward,
Save that of knowing
                    that I am doing your will.

Prayer for Union with Jesus

Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994

   

                Pray — think of Jesus

                Live your vocation
                    (1) committed
                    (2) in deep love

                We can be attached to
                    the world —

                Come to a place alone
                    with Jesus —

                Say Our Father

The Our Father

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

Tobit 8: 5-7

She stood up, and they began praying for protection, and this was how he began:

    You are blessed, O God of our fathers;
    blessed too is your name
    for ever and ever.
    Let the heavens bless you
    and all things you have made
    for evermore.

    You it was who created Adam,
    you who created Eve his wife
    to be his help and support;
    and from these two
        the human race was born.
    You it was who said,
    'It is not right that the man should be alone;
    let us make him a helper like him.'

    And so I take my sister
    not for any lustful motive,
    but I do it in singleness of heart.
    Be kind enough to have pity on her
        and on me
    and bring us to old age together.

        

                We want to be united
                    our whole life —
                    God help us to be united
                    in your work in
                    love

 

Song of Songs 2: 8-10, 14, 16

I hear my love. 
See how he comes 
leaping on the mountains, 
bounding over the hills. 
My love is like a gazelle, 
like a young stag. 

See where he stands 
behind our wall. 
He looks in at the window, 
he peers through the opening. 

My love lifts up his voice, 
he says to me, 
‘Come then, my beloved, 
my lovely one, come.

‘My dove, hiding in the clefts of the rock,
in the coverts of the cliff,
show me your face,
let me hear your voice;
for your voice is sweet
and your face is lovely.’

My love is mine and I am his. 
He pastures his flock among the lilies. 

 

Song of Songs 8: 6-7

Set me like a seal on your heart,
like a seal on your arm.
For love is strong as Death,
passion as relentless as Sheol.
The flash of it is a flash of fire,
a flame of Yahweh himself.
Love no flood can quench,
no torrents drown.
Were a man to offer all his family wealth
to buy love,
contempt is all that he would gain.

   

                Song: Why Do We Hurt the Ones We Love

                Song: God's Love

                R. I am to love —

                If I do not love it
                    will do me - no good at all

 

1 Corinthians 12: 31

Set your mind on the higher gifts. And now I am going to put before you the best way of all.

 

1 Corinthians 13: 8

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.

   

  1. 1 John 4: 17-21
  2. Love comes to its perfection in us when we can face the Day of Judgement fearlessly, because even in this world we have become as he is. In love there is no room for fear, but perfect love drives out fear, because fear implies punishment and no one who is afraid has come to perfection in love. Let us love, then, because he first loved us. Anyone who says 'I love God' and hates his brother, is a liar, since whoever does not love the brother whom he can see cannot love God whom he has not seen. Indeed this is the commandment we have received from him, that whoever loves God, must also love his brother.

 

Matthew 7: 21, 24-29

‘It is not anyone who says to me, "Lord, Lord," who will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but the person who does the will of my Father in heaven.

    Therefore, everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a sensible man who built his house on rock. Rain came down, floods rose, gales blew and hurled themselves against that house, and it did not fall: it was founded on rock. But everyone who listens to these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a stupid man who built his house on sand. Rain came down, floods rose, gales blew and struck that house, and it fell; and what a fall it had!’

Jesus had now finished what he wanted to say, and his teaching made a deep impression on the people because he taught them with authority, unlike their own scribes.

 

Matthew 22: 35-40

and, to put him to the test, one of them put a further question, ‘Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?’ Jesus said to him, ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.’

 

John 15: 12-16

This is my commandment:
love one another,
as I have loved you.
No one can have greater love
than to lay down his life for his friends.
You are my friends,
if you do what I command you.
I shall no longer call you servants,
because a servant does not know
the master’s business;
I call you friends,
because I have made known to you
everything I have learnt from my Father.
You did not choose me,
no, I chose you;
and I commissioned you
to go out and to bear fruit,
fruit that will last;
so that the Father will give you
anything you ask him in my name.

   

John 17: 20-26

I pray not only for these
but also for those
who through their teaching
    will come to believe in me.
May they all be one,
just as, Father, you are in me
    and I am in you,
so that they also may be in us,
so that the world may believe
    it was you who sent me.
I have given them the glory
    you gave to me,
that they may be one as we are one.
With me in them and you in me,
may they be so perfected in unity
that the world will recognise
    that it was you who sent me
and that you have loved them
    as you have loved me.

Father,
I want those you have given me
to be with me where I am,
so that they may always see my glory
which you have given me
because you loved me
before the foundation of the world.
Father, Upright One,
the world has not known you,
but I have known you,
and these have known
that you have sent me.
I have made your name known to them a
nd will continue to make it known,
so that the love with which you loved me
may be in them,
and so that I may be in them.

   

Song of Songs 8: 6-7

Set me like a seal on your heart,
like a seal on your arm.
For love is strong as Death,
passion as relentless as Sheol.
The flash of it is a flash of fire,
a flame of Yahweh himself.
Love no flood can quench,
no torrents drown.
Were a man to offer all his family wealth
to buy love,
contempt is all that he would gain.

 

                Faith —

Hebrews 11: 1-2, 8-19

   Only faith can guarantee the blessings that we hope for, or prove the existence of realities that are unseen. It is for their faith that our ancestors are acknowledged.

   It was by faith that Abraham obeyed the call to set out for a country that was the inheritance given to him and his descendants, and that he set out without knowing where he was going. By faith he sojourned in the Promised Land as though it were not his, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. He looked forward to the well-founded city, designed and built by God.

   It was equally by faith that Sarah, in spite of being past the age, was made able to conceive, because she believed that he who had made the promise was faithful to it.

Because of this, there came from one man, and one who already had the mark of death on him, descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven and the grains of sand on the seashore which cannot be counted.

   All these died in faith, before receiving any of the things that had been promised, but they saw them in the far distance and welcomed them, recognising that they were only strangers and nomads on earth. People who use such terms about themselves make it quite plain that they are in search of a homeland. If they had meant the country they came from, they would have had the opportunity to return to it; but in fact they were longing for a better homeland, their heavenly homeland. That is why God is not ashamed to be called their God, since he has founded the city for them.

   It was by faith that Abraham, when put to the test, offered up Isaac. He offered to sacrifice his only son even though he had yet to receive what had been promised, and he had been told: Isaac is the one through whom your name will be carried on. He was confident that God had the power even to raise the dead; and so, figuratively speaking, he was given back Isaac from the dead.

    

                We see the witnesses God has given
                    to us in the Old Testament —
                    We see the witnesses in the
                    lives of St. Paul
                    St. Peter - who saw Jesus
                        with his own eyes —
                        who was taught by Jesus —
                        who knew Jesus, the man,
                        who witnessed the miracles of Jesus

                Is not the incarnation such a sign
                    of hope — after all the sin
                    before in the Old Testament and
                    Christ died for us, rose on the third day
                    and gave us the Church —
                    We are offending God
                    Jesus died for us
                    God gave us Mary!! We
                    do not believe and hope and love as we should.

                    A sign of hope, indeed, that
                God came to this earth, that
                Jesus took flesh —

                    We have made money our god
                as Mary said December 19th.

      

December 19, 1996 

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

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

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

end of December 19, 1996

  

                    Look at how her image and
                these messages are ignored —
                What sign would make anyone take
                notice —

                The head of John the Baptist was
                cut off because of lustful desire —

                The image head being shot off
                with a sling shot.

                Oh God we have offended You
                with our sins and
   

 

                In not seeing the real sign and
                proceeding because of it in
                greater faith we offend You
                as if it was of no account —

                    Prudence, Temperance are
                virtues — some disobey and act
                imprudently and not temperately
                and when reproved act in
                highest pride and indignation
                to be corrected —

                    Is there such blindness in
                one who is so dull in their
                perceptions and so keen in their
                inward focus they lose sight
                of the world and its beauty that
                surrounds them —

                    A man went out and he bought a
                beautiful house — he then turned
                his focus to the gardens and lakes —
                he was able to even effect the
                skies above with birds that
                sang in the trees of the garden —
                he had some pets, lambs,
                docile beautiful poodles and
                he filled his lakes and aquariums
                with beautiful colored fish —

                    He loved the corals and
                he bought all he could of
                the beauties of
                creation into his domain —

                    Now a jealous neighbor came
                who was condescending — he saw
                the beauty and the man's taste
                and was filled with great envy —
                He was a man of great wealth
                himself, but it was — because
                of the evil of his heart — he saw
                not a drop of his own fortune,
                his talents, his gifts — he saw
                only with the ugliness of sin,
                bitterness, envy that swelled
                in his heart for his kind neighbor —
                He said I will show the man so
                his beauty is destroyed —
                by me —
                I hate him being successful
                and living like a King —
                How dare he have the audacity
                to raise above me —

                    So we think of satan working
                in evil in a man's heart —

                    When God gives him talents to
                do and know all he does — the man
                never even sees what he has —
                nor does he thank God the giver —
                He acts as if he is the proprietor
                of his good — he had it because
                of himself he thinks and he uses
                all he has been given to sin
                in envy and hatred toward
                his brother —

                    The first man of pure heart —
                loved creation and thanked
                God for his gifts — his heart was
                in harmony with the Creator —
                praising the Creator, loving the Creator,
                using what had been given to him —

                    The purity of Joseph to do God's
                will — filled his brothers with
                envy and hatred and they wanted
                to do away with Joseph —

                    "That dreamer" — They as much
                said "ignore your God and his
                gifts, Joseph — get under our feet —
                you can't be chosen — not
                over us"

                    So is the fate of the heart of
                the envious one — Cain hated
                his brother Abel and the jealousy
                raged in his heart to kill him and so
                he killed him because of his
                evil —

                    Condescending — Judas knew
                more than Christ — secretly
                he sold him — Condescending —

                    God is Almighty
                    God created everything from
                        nothing
                    God is love —
                    God is giving to us —

                The man with evil heart says —
                    "No one, my father, included will
                    be above me —
                    I will do my own will —
                    I see through eyes - where I do not
                        serve — I want others to fail —
                    I am hurt and you will pay —
                    I am angry, but I wear a
                        mask and do not have
                        the truth in me

                    My heart enveloped in darkness
                        from my own choice to
                        not love — to hate —
                        to be envious — not to love and serve
                        to want ill for others — not to praise
                        God for his gifts to me" 

  

                God gives us the wonders of this earth —

                We have a free will to love —
                    or to not love —

                We all have evil in us —
                    to deny the evil in us is to
                    live a lie

                A woman was told to report, to
                    ask, to be doing what she
                    was supposed to —

                Addiction set in
                Disobedience etc.

                And then in the darkness - she
                    was indignant at any
                    correction

                Her actions were a 'push-over'
                    for satan
                    if her anger flared - she
                    engaged in some addiction
                    that hurt herself and others —

                But when corrected by those
                    over her — she was indignant
                    that anyone would dare
                    try to shed light on or
                    correct the offense she was
                    doing hurting herself,
                    the institution and
                    others

                And in envy later would see her
                    lost power coming from
                    the correction (she reasoned
                    with her faulty reasoning)
                    and then punish in some
                    form of vindictiveness —

                Satan pressed on her —

                She was his instrument —
                Lions could not get her to respond purely
                    to correction —

                She then defended her position
                    further hurting those over
                    her and those she had hurt —

   

Matthew 18: 15-20

'If your brother does something wrong, go and have it out with him alone, between your two selves. If he listens to you, you have won back your brother. If he does not listen, take one or two others along with you: whatever the misdemeanour, the evidence of two or three witnesses is required to sustain the charge. But if he refuses to listen to these, report it to the community; and if he refuses to listen to the community, treat him like a gentile or a tax collector.

'In truth I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

'In truth I tell you once again, if two of you on earth agree to ask anything at all, it will be granted to you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three meet in my name, I am there among them.'

   

                Wrath is mine says the Lord

                The evil heart is blinded to its
                    ways
                    pride keeps the evil heart
                        stuck
                    for the devil then counsels the sinner,
                        "no one will uncover your
                        evil work —
                        you must rebel further lest
                        your behavior be corrected and you
                        do the work of God —"

                And so it is —
                    one is addicted, rebellious
                    willful —
                    one then in rebelling against
                    what they should do and
                    operating under desolation —

                See their loss of power as a threat
                    and further rebels —

                Holding ground for satan —
                    So ills they commit now
                    become a battle ground
                    for their pride

                Add this insult they feel to injury
                    and they brood and punish
                    for as long as they can get
                    away with their anger —

                A cycle of abuse

                One that goes longer and longer
                    as satan engineers them
                    and in their willfulness
                    they say
                    "I will not serve"
                    "I will do as I please"

                It is brute condescending where
                    they become isolated in
                    a dark stupor and their god
                    becomes pride — their god
                    wanting to win — wanting to be right —
                    When in fact they are wrong
                    "I am right" they say —

                "My god is winning" they say, when in
                    fact they live for this! !

                Sinning makes us further and further
                    from God —

                This further leads to deeper and
                    deeper misery, blackness

                Because only God makes
                    us happy —

                If we are humble we recognize our sins —
                    Humility is knowing the truth about
                        the good and evil in us —
                    Humility admits the good
                        and evil in us —
                    Humility is truth —
                    the humble person wants to change —

                A person that acts imprudently
                    and without temperance
                    and wants their imprudent
                    behavior to be accepted
                    because of their pride —
                    is working thusly —

                They are first of all not acting
                    in virtue

                Secondly because of the
                    deadly sin of pride —
                    they want what is wrong
                        to be recognized as right
                    and what is right to be
                        recognized as wrong —

                We can see how
                    the virtues help a man
                    do God's will

                Vices are practiced
                    and a man is rebelling
                    against God's will

                A person who carries out willfully against
                    God's will and uses force
                    to force his dysfunctional rules on others —
                    may use brooding and punishing
                    the other to manipulate
                    their way to cause disharmony
                    and disorder —                   
                    They have distorted vision and
                    because of the prolonged
                    rebellion the will can
                    becomes diseased — deeply
                    where they have fallen into
                    vices, habits where they act
                    that lead them further and
                    further from God's will,
                    harmony, order and truth —

                There is society sin — as the abortion —
                    laws the devil tempts them to
                    implement through willfulness and
                    force — They may put bad
                    rules into effect
                    that oppose the very
                    commandments of God —

                Sins become more and more grave —
                    darker and darker —

                Virtuous living helps us to lead lives
                    according to God's will —
                    Like loving, believing, hoping —
                    the other virtues, prudence,
                    temperance, justice,
                    fortitude, humility — lead
                    us in the way to act according
                    to what God wants —

                Loving is an act of the will —

                A person acting in a way opposed
                    to what they should do —
                    after being corrected —
                    and punitive in actions,
                    provoking to get control is acting
                    in a far greater darkness.
                    Their motive is punishing another
                    vindictively for control and
                    anger is with malicious intent

                The 5th commandment takes on
                    a wide range of sin —
                    from killing and aborting babies —
                to a lesser degree —
                    wishing harm and punishing
                    another because of
                    the evil we wish to do to others
                    we believe deserve it or have hurt us —

                Sin is sin and we are accountable
                    for personal sin —

                A person who habitually uses silence,
                    holding back, willful behavior
                    disobeying after being corrected
                    is as Fr. Mike said
                Doing it because they want to —

                They will to do this rebellious way
                    of acting —

                When God has given us the Blue Books
                    we see what God writes of
                    how we are to act in
                    loving —

                Here is the beginning of Blue Book V.

God Calls Us to Love

John 13:34

I give you a new commandment: love one another; you must love one another just as I have loved you.

Matthew 7:7

Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you.

Messenger: Dear Jesus, I stand at the door of Your Heart and knock to come in. I want entry - to be lost totally and entirely in Thee. I want to be sheltered inside of Your Heart and wrapped deeply in Your infinite love.

Jesus: I call you, child, to love. Love is rooted in Me. I gave My all for love of you. I held nothing back. Love gives freely for the good of the other. Love exists to draw the other closer to God. If your relationship with your brother in anyway separates you from God, it is not love.

    Love is not haughty, love does not demand its own way, love exists to lead the other to closer union with Me. I loved you to My death. I gave to you My all! I ask you to give your all for your beloved brothers. In loving them, you are loving Me. I live in your brothers. How can you love Me who you do not see, if you do not love your brother who you see.

    I am the way. I am the truth. I am the life. I give that you will know Me and know how to love one another. Love your brothers as I have loved you. When they persecute you and holler every evil word against you, love them. This is My way - to lay down My life for My friends.

John 13:34

I give you a new commandment: love one another; you must love one another just as I have loved you.

Messenger: And to those who heeded His words, their lives were lived in peace and love and they experienced joy in their hearts, for true love brings peace and true love gives joy to the heart of the beholder. It is in loving that you receive, it is in giving that you are rendered to and it is in following the way of Christ that we are led into a life of everlasting happiness.

Jesus: I have not gone. I live with you this day. I am in your brothers. Love them as I have loved you.

Messenger: And He sent them such blessings in such abundance and  they knew a little of His unending mercy and love.

I Feed the Hungry Soul

Jesus: Another person cannot feed your hungry soul. You search, you seek. Your starved soul craves only that which I can give. When your heart is searching for love, come, My sweet dear child, into My Heart. My Mother will take you to the deepest recesses of My Heart. There you will know such comfort - in My Heart on fire for love of you this day.

    You are a child of dignity. You are precious to Me. You are the creation of the Father. I gave the last drop of My blood for you. This is love - you need grace to realize the immenseness of God's love. You are so special to God, all three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Mary loves you so much.

    You can never be satisfied on this earth. If you find the dearest mother, father, lover, friend, they will not fill you with the love your soul craves. To find Me is to seek Me. You will not be satisfied on this earth.

    You, My child, experience longing for My intense love. I love you to want Me. This is how I long for love of each precious soul. I long for them with the most tender Heart, beating and breathing with fire. I never falter. I never grow dim. I am the same, with the same burning love. Come to Me and jump into My precious Heart. I love you so much.

 

October 2, 1994

You Are the Father’s Creation

Jesus: I come to you in one another. Let not your hearts be hard, let your hearts be as little children, tender and pure. They do not hold grudges, they love each other, they love themselves.

    You are the creation of My beloved Father. You were created with such dignity and love. I died for you. I gave My life that you would share My life. Oh, My child, pray to the Holy Spirit to open your eyes, to let you see where you are blind, to open your hearts to the ways of God. Pray to Him to sanctify you.

    You are called to be Christ to one another. Your hearts have turned hard. Your ways are not My ways. My way is always to love. My ways are to give. My ways are to see in your brother the creation of the Father, so beautiful, so uniquely created.

    Each child is a gift from God to this world. Each child is a gift of unique love, given by the Father. You were uniquely created. You are so loved. Pray to know your specialness to God. It is in realizing His love for you that you will love your brothers.

Messenger: We are all brothers in Christ. God is our Father. We are all one.

Jesus: Join, My little ones, in such love. It is in loving that you will be at peace. Love of each other creates joy in your hearts. Pray for the grace to know and love God more. It is in this knowledge and God's love that you will be My light that shines in the darkest night.

    I am the Way, I am the Truth. I am the Life! To live in Me you must come to know and love Me. Follow My ways. My ways are the ways of truth. My ways are not always the easy way, they are the ways of love.

    If you are to be joined in your hearts, you must love every man. Every man is your brother. You must put on Christ in all your ways. Would Christ act as you are acting?

    I love you so much. It is in meditating on My love for you that you will love your brothers.

    I put you on this earth to love one another. Pray to the Spirit to know My ways. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I truly come to bring you new life. It is in Me you will have the light of life. I love you so, the Father loves you so, the Spirit wants to live in your hearts and make you alive with the love of God. Pray to Mary to lead you through her loving heart into such love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    My child, come to My ever burning Heart. I do not love you one moment and forget you the next. I am forever burning brightly for you. I never falter. I am forever on fire for love of you. If you forget Me, I never ever forget you, I love you so much.

These Messages Need to Circulate

Jesus: My dear children, I tell you to listen to Me here. I am delivering messages for all to be read and distributed. Souls need to read these messages. Your Center will grow in love of Me when you circulate these messages. I ask. You have a free will. These are My letters of love to all. They are not being read. I deliver these messages to you to deliver to My faithful ones. Please, I beg you to circulate My messages. What more do I say to you!

    This world is moving further and further from Me. I control your every breath. Do you think you are independent of He Who keeps you alive, second by second?

    You do not know how truly frail you are? You do not control the air, the water, the sun, your food. You are dependent on Me for your existence, second by second.

    I am your Most loving Savior. I speak to you here. Please listen to Me. This is an urgent request. I love you so and love each hurting soul. All the Blue Books have different messages. They speak to all of you. They need to be published. I will provide the funds to see to this. Your delays are stopping the progress of so many returning to My most intimate love. I beg you, please answer My plea.

Come to My Waiting Arms

Jesus: My child, My eyes are watching you. You sit in front of Me in the tabernacle where I am exposed and you kneel in front of Me. I am no less present than when I hung from the cross.

    My eyes looked to the heavens above to behold the glimpses of My dear Mother under My cross. My eyes saw it all. I saw the hatred, the anger in their eyes as they came for Me to scourge Me. Such deep darkness in their souls - the bottomless pit of darkness! These eyes of Mine beheld My dear Mother, close by My side on Calvary. To see her suffering! My eyes watched as I so horribly suffered Myself. My eyes watch you, My beloved, kneel in front of Me here and know how My Heart forever beats with such love for you and you do not realize this love.

    My eyes watch My beloved ones suffer so. Many sufferings made by their own willfulness to do what they choose and not what I tell them. My eyes watch My beloved ones suffer and I do not interfere with their free will. But, My eyes watch them with the same love that led Me to death on the cross.

    Think of My eyes watching you. Know how I am present to you in your hearts. I am so close to you, My dearly beloved ones! If you only knew how your life depends on My constant care for you!

    Your every breath is dependent on Me. Oh, little blind earth, when will you come to My waiting arms? When will you see this God Who loves you so dearly? What do I need to do to show you My love? Open up your closed hearts. Pray for grace. Come and sit with Me in front of the tabernacle. Attend the Mass. Receive communion. My grace I pour out to you to know and love Me more. If you do not come, you are missing such graces! Love your brothers. You receive graces through your good works. You will grow in your love and knowledge of Me as you cooperate with this grace I pour out to you.

    Oh, little one, you need to come to Me. The devil is so strong. You need the grace I pour out to you to grow in holiness. You need the Spirit to sanctify you. Oh, I love you so. Do not give into satan to trip you up and get you focused on his nonsense. I, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, am in your midst this very day and I am forever watching you.

Messenger: The eyes that watch me as I sit here with Him! He is watching me with such love! The Father is with me with such love. The Spirit is within me, moving within me to make me grow in holiness. Oh, please God, I want to grow in love and knowledge of You. I love You so much!

    They constantly accused Jesus and persecuted Him with such accusations. He showed us the way. He was silent. He did not argue. They clothed Him many times and made Him change His garments. Jesus was the little innocent lamb led to the slaughter. He yielded to them, and they stripped Him and persecuted Him. He did all this for love of us. He was silent. Are we silent when satan tries to attack us through others? Does it do any good to answer an angry attack? He was silent to His death on the cross. He loved those who persecuted Him. He yielded to their treatment. He was the victim being led to the slaughter.

    The Father loved us so much He gave His only Son up to death with such persecution! He loves us so much this very day. He sees the creationHe has made and He loves His creation so much. We are so loved by the Father.

Jesus: I am the Way. I am the Truth. I am the Life. I am Jesus, come to you this day, exposed here in the Eucharist. I give you Myself out of such love. I yielded to all their insults and persecution that ended in My death. I remain in such love for you this day.

    What more do I say to you? I love you so much. Study My passion and see the love I gave for you. Oh, dear one, you are so loved!

Ezekiel 12: 1-12

The word of Yahweh was addressed to me as follows, 'Son of man, you are living among a tribe of rebels who have eyes and never see, they have ears and never hear, because they are a tribe of rebels. So, son of man, pack an exile's bundle and set off for exile by daylight while they watch. You will leave your home and go somewhere else while they watch. Then perhaps they will see that they are a tribe of rebels. You will pack your baggage like an exile's bundle, by daylight, while they watch, and leave like an exile in the evening, while they watch. While they watch, make a hole in the wall, and go out through it. While they watch, you will shoulder your pack and go out into the dark; you will cover your face so that you cannot see the ground, since I have made you an omen for the House of Israel.'

    I did as I had been told. I packed my baggage like an exile's bundle, by daylight; and in the evening I made a hole through the wall with my hands; then I went out into the dark and shouldered my pack while they watched.

    Next morning the word of Yahweh was addressed to me as follows, 'Son of man, did not the House of Israel, did not that tribe of rebels, ask you, "What are you doing?" Say, "The Lord Yahweh says this: This prophecy concerns Jerusalem and the whole House of Israel who live there." Say, "I am an omen for you; as I have done, so will be done to them; they will be deported into exile. Their prince will shoulder his pack in the dark and go out through the wall; a hole will be made to let him out; he will cover his face, so that he cannot see the country.

 

Matthew 18: 21 - 19: 1

Then Peter went up to him and said, ‘Lord, how often must I forgive my brother if he wrongs me? As often as seven times?’ Jesus answered, ‘Not seven, I tell you, but seventy–seven times.

‘And so the kingdom of Heaven may be compared to a king who decided to settle his accounts with his servants. When the reckoning began, they brought him a man who owed ten thousand talents; he had no means of paying, so his master gave orders that he should be sold, together with his wife and children and all his possessions, to meet the debt. At this, the servant threw himself down at his master’s feet, with the words, "Be patient with me and I will pay the whole sum." And the servant’s master felt so sorry for him that he let him go and cancelled the debt. Now as this servant went out, he happened to meet a fellow–servant who owed him one hundred denarii; and he seized him by the throat and began to throttle him, saying, "Pay what you owe me." His fellow–servant fell at his feet and appealed to him, saying, "Be patient with me and I will pay you." But the other would not agree; on the contrary, he had him thrown into prison till he should pay the debt. His fellow–servants were deeply distressed when they saw what had happened, and they went to their master and reported the whole affair to him. Then the master sent for the man and said to him, "You wicked servant, I cancelled all that debt of yours when you appealed to me. Were you not bound, then, to have pity on your fellow–servant just as I had pity on you?" And in his anger the master handed him over to the torturers till he should pay all his debt. And that is how my heavenly Father will deal with you unless you each forgive your brother from your heart.’

Jesus had now finished what he wanted to say, and he left Galilee and came into the territory of Judaea on the far side of the Jordan.

   

                We see God is with us today allowing
                    so many little babies to be born
                    to loving parents despite the
                    terrible sin of abortion —

                We 'hope' we see this as a sign of
                    God blessing us! !
                We hope by the sign of Our Lady of Clearwater
                In the messages God gave Fr. Carter in
                    Tell My People - We are hopeful —

 

 

                We HOPE!

                - Because of the flowering and
                    growing holiness of our priests
                    and the love for the Church and
                    adoration and we pray for this.

                We see how the Angel of Death
                    passed over the houses
                    with the blood on their
                    door posts —

                And we see how God has given
                    us the Church and
                    the Mass and the priest —
                    Jesus remains with us
                    truly present - in His
                    Divinity and humanity in the
                    Eucharist

 

John 13: 1-5

Before the festival of the Passover, Jesus, knowing that his hour had come to pass from this world to the Father, having loved those who were his in the world, loved them to the end. They were at supper, and the devil had already put it into the mind of Judas Iscariot son of Simon, to betray him. Jesus knew that the Father had put everything into his hands, and that he had come from God and was returning to God, and he got up from table, removed his outer garments and, taking a towel, wrapped it round his waist; he then poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel he was wearing.

 

Matthew 26: 26-28

Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had said the blessing he broke it and gave it to the disciples. ‘Take it and eat,’ he said, ‘this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he handed it to them saying, ‘Drink from this, all of you, for this is my blood, the blood of the covenant, poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

   

Matthew 26: 21-22

And while they were eating he said, ‘In truth I tell you, one of you is about to betray me.’ They were greatly distressed and started asking him in turn, ‘Not me, Lord, surely?’

    

                The Blood of the Lamb —

                Shed for our sins —

                Jesus sweat blood in the garden
                    for the deepest sins — the
                    blackest sins —
                    Jesus paid the price for our
                        sins —

                The Apostles — many of the saints —
                    those who followed in the footprints
                    of Jesus and suffered
                    martyrdom and shed their blood
                    for the Church

                How can we be so indulgent to
                    take the Eucharist so
                    lightly when these martyrs
                    show us how they followed
                    Jesus

                When we have spiritual pride and addictions
                    we can think we are so pure and
                    making others "poor boys", sinners
                    under us — this is condescending and not right —

   

Matthew 22: 16-21

And they sent their disciples to him, together with some Herodians, to say, 'Master, we know that you are an honest man and teach the way of God in all honesty, and that you are not afraid of anyone, because human rank means nothing to you. Give us your opinion, then. Is it permissible to pay taxes to Caesar or not?' But Jesus was aware of their malice and replied, 'You hypocrites! Why are you putting me to the test? Show me the money you pay the tax with.' They handed him a denarius, and he said, 'Whose portrait is this? Whose title?' They replied, 'Caesar's.' Then he said to them, 'Very well, pay Caesar what belongs to Caesar — and God what belongs to God.'

      

                We see how Jesus handled
                the woman caught in adultery

                Jesus raised Lazarus
                    from the tomb —

                Mary appeared at Fatima
                    she asked for CONVERSION
                    she asked for REPARATION

 

Third message of angel of Fatima 1916

"Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly. I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and [the intercession of] the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners." (5)

"Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by ungrateful men! Make reparation for their crimes and console your God." (6)

                How can we be so prideful
                    and act as if God doesn't
                    see our sins and

                then on top of this
                    lie when we have sinned
                    instead of begging God
                    to forgive us

                Jesus suffered for our sins —
                Jesus shed His Blood

                Look at the stubbornness of
                    Pharaoh — he even
                    lost his firstborn

                All the plagues —

                How can we be so stubborn and
                    prideful in our sins —

                Jesus paid the price for our
                    spiritual pride and
                    for when we lie about our
                    rebellion to serve Him
                    as He desires and
                    then in pride try to
                    force our rules that are
                    wrong (from satan,
                    dysfunctional rules)
                    on others —

                God is love —

                Jesus is the way, the truth and the
                    life —

                Humility is truth —

 

Matthew 16: 22-23

Then, taking him aside, Peter started to rebuke him. ‘Heaven preserve you, Lord,’ he said, ‘this must not happen to you.’ But he turned and said to Peter, ‘Get behind me, Satan! You are an obstacle in my path, because you are thinking not as God thinks but as human beings do.’

  

                God divided the Red Sea
                God gives to us baptism —

                I Have Hope today

                I Believe in God

                I want to love —
                God is love
                God is truth —

                Song: Give me Your Heart oh Jesus

                Jesus washed their feet!!

 

                They were selling in the temple!

                How has money been used
                    incorrectly for power —
                    to force rules —
                    to force dominance by
                        those who needed to
                        obey God —

 

Matthew 12: 29-30

'Or again, how can anyone make his way into a strong man's house and plunder his property unless he has first tied up the strong man? Only then can he plunder his house. 'Anyone who is not with me is against me, and anyone who does not gather in with me throws away.

   

Matthew 5: 17

    ‘Do not imagine that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete them.

 

Mark 14: 10

Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, approached the chief priests with an offer to hand Jesus over to them.

 

                Moses was given the 10 commandments —

                They made a molten calf and
                    were worshipping the
                    molten calf —

                Who is your god?

                Jesus: I cry oh Israel for
                    you worship yourselves
                    as false gods — I am the
                    King of heaven and earth —

                    Get behind Me satan!

                    You and your pride —
                    You enforce rules against
                        mine, so you can
                        control and
                        give your power
                        to the devil —
                        You are a hypocrite
                        doing this —
                    promoting the devil and
                        his works —

                Hear me oh Israel —

                    I am love
                    I am the way, the truth
                        and the life —

                Satan wants you in your pride
                    to betray Me —
                    to seek dominance for
                        dominance sake —
                    and I cry to you to get
                        off My throne and
                    obey your God —

    

Matthew 26: 26-28

Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had said the blessing he broke it and gave it to the disciples. ‘Take it and eat,’ he said, ‘this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he handed it to them saying, ‘Drink from this, all of you, for this is my blood, the blood of the covenant, poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

   

                Abraham had faith —
                    he was willing to sacrifice
                        his Son Isaac

                But the angel told him
                    not to —

                You are tested —

                I washed the feet of My Apostles —

                I give you Myself in the
                    Eucharist

                Gifts - Gifts - Gifts and
                    some choose not to love
                    some choose pride —
                    Loving, obedience is an
                        act of the will —

                The burning bush was not
                    consumed —

                    Abraham heard the call
                        of God

                    Abraham answered his
                        beloved God and served
                        God and not himself

                Vices    or    Virtues

                You have a free will
                You are here to obey My
                    commands and
                    Serve Me —

                I sweat blood in the garden
                    and My apostles slept,
                    but it isn't like some
                    of you who brood and
                    carry out your
                    anger — a diseased will —

                The blindness of those angry
                    ones wishing to be
                    right in their spiritual
                    pride — when they
                    need to recognize their
                    pride and condescending
                    heart —

                It is far better for you to
                    receive a jolt and change
                    your ways on this side —

                then to see the other side
                    and work out all your
                    seeds you planted because
                    of your pride and hatefulness —

                I am love —

                I sweat blood for the man who
                    had sinned in such pride and
                    some are too prideful
                    to ever say they are
                    wrong —

                They whipped Me for your pride —
                They crowned My head for
                    your condescending
                    punishment of others —

 

Matthew 26: 51-52

And suddenly, one of the followers of Jesus grasped his sword and drew it; he struck the high priest's servant and cut off his ear. Jesus then said, 'Put your sword back, for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.

 

                    And Peter struck him with
                a sword —

                    Put away your swords —

                    An eye for an eye — you say —

                    I gave Myself for your sins

   

Prayer from St. Ignatius

Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
To give and not to count the cost;
To fight and not to heed the wounds;
To toil and not to seek for rest;
To labor and not to ask for any reward,
Save that of knowing
                    that I am doing your will.

   

                R. Jesus was betrayed
                Jesus sweat blood
                Jesus was beaten

                Jesus: They bound Me
                    Your sins are tying you up —
                    Stiff bodies
                    Opposing God's will makes you tense —

                    They condemned Me to death!
                    They mocked Me
                    Even Peter betrayed Me
                    My beloved Peter —

                    Like a common criminal

                    Cain killed Abel
                    Cain wanted his brother dead
                    Cain's envy was in his heart —
                    He willed him dead — ! !
                    Judas hung himself because
                        of his despair —
                    Sin makes you miserable!!

                    I was tried in the courts of men!
                    I was tried and found guilty —

                    My head bloodied for your
                        sins of pride —

                    Blood in My eyes
                    Thorns pounded into My head —

                    Why don't you do what
                        you are to do because
                        you love God?

                    Why do you smite Me?

                    You have offended Me with
                        your sins —

                    Say you are sorry

                    Recognize your sins —

                    Joseph was betrayed by his
                        brothers —

                    Look how you have
                        betrayed Me —

                    I am Jesus, your
                        brother, Jesus —

                    Look at Joseph's brothers

                    So many and
                        poor Joseph —

                    Look at you My brothers
                        how you have put
                        Me to death —
                        how I was beaten by
                            your sins and

                    Still like Joseph's brothers
                        you won't say you
                        are sorry —

                    Joseph was chosen by God —

                    I am Jesus, your brother —

                    What you do to your brothers
                        you do to Me —

                    How you treat each other
                        you do to Me —

                    You have whipped Me and
                        crowned Me with
                        thorns

                    Repent and change your lives

    

John 19: 17

They then took charge of Jesus, and carrying his own cross he went out to the Place of the Skull or, as it is called in Hebrew, Golgotha,

        

Matthew 27: 55-56

    And many women were there, watching from a distance, the same women who had followed Jesus from Galilee and looked after him. Among them were Mary of Magdala, Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of Zebedee’s sons.

  

Matthew 27: 32

On their way out, they came across a man from Cyrene, called Simon, and enlisted him to carry his cross.

 

Luke 23: 27-28

Large numbers of people followed him, and women too, who mourned and lamented for him. But Jesus turned to them and said, ‘Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep rather for yourselves and for your children.

 

Numbers 21: 4-9

They left Mount Hor by the road to the Sea of Suph, to skirt round Edom. On the way the people lost patience. They spoke against God and against Moses, ‘Why did you bring us out of Egypt to die in the desert? For there is neither food nor water here; we are sick of this meagre diet.’ 

    At this, God sent fiery serpents among the people; their bite brought death to many in Israel. The people came and said to Moses, ‘We have sinned by speaking against Yahweh and against you. Intercede for us with Yahweh to save us from these serpents.’ Moses interceded for the people, and Yahweh replied, ‘Make a fiery serpent and raise it as a standard. Anyone who is bitten and looks at it will survive.’ Moses then made a serpent out of bronze and raised it as a standard, and anyone who was bitten by a serpent and looked at the bronze serpent survived.

 

Matthew 28: 20

and teach them to observe all the commands I gave you. And look, I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.’

 

John 19: 25-27

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then to the disciple he said, ‘This is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

 

  

John 19: 33-34

When they came to Jesus, they saw he was already dead, and so instead of breaking his legs one of the soldiers pierced his side with a lance; and immediatedly there came out blood and water.

 

Act of consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

"Lord Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock, I consecrate myself to Your most Sacred Heart. From Your pierced Heart the Church was born, the Church You have called me, as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, to serve in a most special way. You reveal Your Heart as a symbol of Your love in all its aspects, including Your most special love for me, whom You have chosen as Your companion in this most important work. Help me to always love You in return. Help me to give myself entirely to You. Help me always to pour out my life in love of God and neighbor! Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You!

"Dear Blessed Virgin Mary, I consecrate myself to your maternal and Immaculate Heart, this Heart which is symbol of your life of love. You are the Mother of my Savior. You are also my Mother. You love me with a most special love as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, a movement created by your Son as a powerful instrument for the renewal of the Church and the world. In a return of love, I give myself entirely to your motherly love and protection. You followed Jesus perfectly. You are His first and perfect disciple. Teach me to imitate you in the putting on of Christ. Be my motherly intercessor so that, through your Immaculate Heart, I may be guided to an ever closer union with the pierced Heart of Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock."

 

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

"My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I ask pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You."

"Pray thus. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to the voice of your supplications." (3)  

Pray! Pray a great deal. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary have merciful designs on you. Offer prayers and sacrifices continually to the Most High. Make everything you do a sacrifice, and offer it as an act of reparation for the sins by which God is offended, and as a petition for the conversion of sinners. Bring peace to our country in this way.... I am the Guardian Angel of Portugal Accept and bear with submission all the sufferings the Lord will send you. (4)

"Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly. I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and [the intercession of] the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners." (5)

"Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by ungrateful men! Make reparation for their crimes and console your God." (6)

Excerpts from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

May 13, 1917 

    "Do not be afraid, I will do you no harm..... I am from Heaven.

    "I have come to ask you to come here for six months in succession, on the 13th day, at the same hour. Later on, I will tell you who I am and what I want

    "Are you willing to offer yourselves to God and bear all the sufferings He wills to send you, as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners?

    "Pray the Rosary every day in order to obtain peace for the world, and the end of the war." (8)

  

June 13, 1917

    "God wishes you to remain in the world for some time because He wants to use you to establish in the world the devotion to my Immaculate Heart. I promise salvation to those who embrace it, and their souls will be loved by God as flowers placed by myself to adorn His throne." (10)

  

July 13, 1917

"O my Jesus, I offer this for love of Thee, for the conversion of poor sinners, and in reparation for all the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary." (11)

    "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)

    

October 13, 1917

    I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day.(17)

   

  Before Jacinta died, she told of other messages given her (during her illness) by Mary:

    More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.

    Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much.

    Many marriages are not good; they do not please Our Lord and are not of God.

    Priests must be pure, very pure. They should not busy themselves with anything except what concerns the Church and souls. The disobedience of priests, to their superiors and to the Holy Father, is very displeasing to Our Lord.

    I can no longer restrain the hand of my Divine Son from striking the world with just punishments for its many crimes.

    If the government of a country leaves the Church in peace and gives liberty to our Holy Religion, it will be blessed by God.

    Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. (19)

The China Church is over 140 years old

and we pray in there 24 hours a day.

It needs stucco and so does

the community building.

Can you please help us?

Call Shepherds of Christ

Likewise the priest house

is 150 years old.

Jesus told us to repair it

which we have been doing.

We need $13,000.00 for this work.
