                Religious are wed to Jesus —

                Jesus loves them —

                Jesus is the Spouse of the Priest


 

                Jesus wants us helping the souls
                        He died for —

                Religious, Servants and Handmaids
                    can almost ignore Jesus —
                    Jesus is the Spouse they
                        married
                    We must focus on the love
                        Jesus has for us

 

A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb,
the Bridegroom of the Soul

     Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

     

 

  

                When you want somebody to love
                    you — you put on your
                    best beauty — goodness — love —
                    kindness — forgiveness, compassion

                Jesus is the greatest Spouse

                Human creatures are limited
                    in the ways they love —
                    ever growing

                Who can compare to God who
                    is love —

                Once we realize how much God
                    loves us — we act loving

                Satan can tempt religious to
                    not recognize this tremendous
                    calling to be the Spouse of Jesus.

                Jesus says:

                    I am the way, the truth and
                            the life

                What is life —

                Life rooted in Jesus —

                When Jesus wants to be so one with
                    us
                    we can say
                    wait a minute Jesus — I am
                        angry, I will provoke
                        someone

                What a way to be married
                    to Jesus —

                Jesus does not get close to an angry Spouse
                    He is pure.

                Jesus is love

                When Jesus is our groom how
                    should we act

                Communication is love

                Problem solving in love so
                    we can do the work
                    God intends —

                When I get Vitamin C it is
                    ascorbic acid and some
                    vitamins has filler —

                When satan talks in somebody's
                    head telling them lies —
                    fallacious reasoning and work
                    needs to be done —

                The person being pressed on by satan —
                    wants control —
                    they fight to be right —
                    they can filter out what
                    satan tells them usually
                    something like this —

                    "They are wanting to tell me what to do —
                    I'm not going to — they have tried to hurt
                    me — I will not help. I will get even,
                    I will bring them to their knees."

                An old button is pressed by something
                    done —

                The person can respond to
                    seeing innocent others working
                    together, the person becomes jealous
                    and begins to act impurely — nothing
                    even happened — it was all in the person's head!

                    Say Marian hears Peggy is going out
                with Sue and she is jealous —

                    Marian has a job to do in the
                same office where they all work —
                Marian is jealous so she blocks
                important work that needs to get done —
                besides that from habitually reacting
                in jealousy — her actions are almost
                automatic

                    When she gets jealous — she stops
                important work and plays a hard game
                that is passive-aggressive —

                    When one realizes that these impure
                actions, jealousy, envy, possessiveness,
                seeking dominance for dominance sake —
                open a door to satan and keep us
                from loving and being close to Jesus —

                    Jesus wants love
                    Jesus unites to pure hearts
                        so deeply —

                We must try to be pure — not
                    rebellious —

                Mary Ann is a religious — she wears
                    a ring — she needs to realize
                    how much Jesus loves her to call her
                    and love trying to spread love and help
                    souls to get to heaven —

                    but she is angry a lot feeling she
                has no biological children and she doesn't see
                how pleased Jesus is for
                her life of celibacy —

                    So she gives her gift and is
                angry, resentful and Jesus
                says — you have all the children
                of the Church to help — the souls
                I shed My Blood for — I called
                you to help them

                Mary Ann saw a man at Church and
                    he was not happily married — so
                    Mary Ann liked talking to him —
                    having his affectionate glance that
                    was romantic — then they began
                    becoming closer and closer

                Mary Ann is a Sister —

                She is married to Jesus —

                She spent half her religious life
                    being angry she couldn't
                    have a husband and children
                    and now she has justified this
                    relationship

                    What Mary Ann doesn't see — is that
                Jesus is her Spouse — no human creature
                can be like Jesus — God lives in the baptized
                graced soul —

                    Mary Ann thinks she can be unfaithful to
                Jesus — like its okay and He doesn't
                know —

                    Jesus is truly present in the
                tabernacle and He wants our love

                    George wants to be right and he
                works with Martha in the business
                office — George divorced 10 years ago
                and he had trouble solving problems
                smoothly — so he wants it his way and
                is still angry about the money in
                the divorce — He acts out his anger
                over simple problems —

                    Martha is passive-aggressive and
                she provokes until the person
                gets frustrated and mad —

                    Martha will never deliver anything
                without a game of power —

                    How do you think the business
                office will work — Both Martha and
                George are ready to fight to prove
                they are right — the fight is a
                cold war — for periods of weeks
                this energy needed for all those in
                the whole business is stymied
                because they won't handle the
                simplest thing in peace and love
                like team players —

                    Yesterday Fr. Pasquini talked about the
                many religious — Men wanted it
                their way and didn't obey the Catholic
                Faith

 

Matthew 16: 18

So I now say to you: you are Peter and on this rock I will build my community. And the gates of the underworld can never overpower it.

   

                The Chair of Peter is a rock —

                The popes can be traced back to
                    Peter —

                    People in all walks of life
                want to win — want to prove they
                are right because of pride when in
                fact they are wrong many times —

                    What about love
                    What about peace

                Religious — I give you this message —
                    Jesus chose you
                    Jesus is on fire for love of
                        you

                Jesus wants you to love for Him in
                    the world —
                    love for the souls He
                    died for

  

16 Years Ago
 

October 5, 1992 - 3:30am

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

Jesus:  My dear children,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                Co-dependent relationships keeps
                    us stuck —

                An alcoholic can try to get his
                    spouse to follow him
                    around — making the
                    whole family sick

                When one ceases to recognize
                    addictions — control —
                    trying to be right always, always
                    perfect — one can try to make
                    others dependent on them

                Passive-aggressive people
                    stall — don't deliver and
                    use work and other things as
                    power over others to
                    manipulate and control to
                    get others in these
                Slavishly - dependent relationships

                God is love —
                    He wants us to   

Matthew 22: 37-39

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.

  

                Be empowered to love and
                    love the souls He died for
                    by being a light
                    by loving
                    by being likened to Him

                Not dysfunctional and hurting
                    everyone else in the
                    process —
                    pray as never before

                Pray for people who divorce —
                    how lives are torn apart —
                    proving right —
                    pray to be as God wants
                    not like 2 walls  

  

                Married people are to be chaste
                    in their vocation and
                    pure for Jesus

                Religious are married to God

    

 

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

 

 

 

A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb,
the Bridegroom of the Soul

     Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

 

 

   

 


  

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.

-God's Blue Book, December 27, 1995

    

                Holding out to get control
                    is not love

                Jesus wants love

                Jesus wants team players in
                    structures
