1 Corinthians 12:3113:1-13  

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

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

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

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

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

  

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.

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

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

Sequence for Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows

                        At the Cross her Station Keeping       

At the cross her station keeping,
Stood the mournful Mother weeping,
Close to Jesus to the last.

Through her heart, His sorrow sharing,
All His bitter anguish bearing,
Now at length the sword had pass'd.

O, how sad and sore distress'd,
Was that Mother highly blest
Of the sole-begotten One!

Christ above in torment hangs;
She beneath beholds the pangs
Of her dying glorious Son.

Is there one who would not weep,
Whelm'd in miseries so deep
Christ's dear Mother to behold?

Can the human heart refrain
From partaking in her pain,
In that Mother's pain untold?

Bruis'd, derided, curs'd, defil'd,
She beheld her tender Child:
All with bloody scourges rent.

For the sins of His own nation,
Saw Him hang in desolation,
Till His spirit forth He sent.

O thou Mother! fount of love!
Touch my spirit from above;
Make my heart with thine accord.

Make me feel as thou hast felt;
Make my soul to glow and melt,
With the love of Christ my Lord.

Holy Mother! pierce me through;
In my heart each wound renew,
Of my Savior crucified.

Let me share with thee His pain,
Who for all my sins was slain,
Who for me in torments died.

Let me mingle tears with thee,
Mourning Him who mourn'd for me,
All the days that I may live.

By the cross with thee to stay;
There with thee to weep and pray;
Is all I ask of thee to give.

Virgin of all virgins best,
Listen to my fond request:
Let me share thy grief divine.

Let me, to my latest breath,
In my body bear the death
Of that dying Son of thine.

Wounded with His every wound,
Steep my soul till it hath swoon'd,
In His very blood away.

Be to me, O virgin, nigh,
Lest in flames I burn and die,
In His awful Judgment day.

Christ, when Thou shalt call me hence,
Be Thy Mother my defense,
Be Thy cross my victory.

While my body here decays,
May my soul Thy goodness praise,
Safe in Paradise with Thee.
Amen.

                 
                We can't even imagine the
                    sorrow Mary went through
                    watching her Son die —

 

Written September 24, 2000

R. Mary stood beneath the cross of her Son and she was in such anguish, of this I write. 

She saw the anguish of her beloved Son. She watched, she heard Him sigh, breath, she endured the time, knowing the time was near for His death. 

There was the intensity of waiting during the passion. Think of her anguish watching him as He hung on the cross.  

Mary knew things from the prophecy of Simeon. She knew of a deep sorrow to pierce her heart. 

Think of the anguish of her heart.  

Think of Mary holding the lifeless body of Jesus under the cross. Meditate on the sufferings she endured. 

Think of how she felt at the tomb where they laid her Son. 

Pray for light to know more fully the heart of Mary in these sufferings. 

Mary had such a deep connection in her heart to Jesus. They were so united.  

Death by crucifixion was used to kill criminals. They crucified Jesus, the Son of God. 

 

July 5, 2001

 

R. It is painful to see injustices in the world. 

We go through sufferings concerning injustices in the world. Mary cries out about the sins of her children. We identify with Jesus. He knew all the souls that would be lost despite His suffering. 

Be with Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane and see the sins of the world. Pray for knowledge to know more about the souls being lost. We must pray more fervently. Beg for mercy from God for our sins and the sins of the world. 

I could write forever of those moments of Mary as she stood beneath the cross or when she held the lifeless body of her Son in her lap. 

She shared in His Passion. She stood and watched Him suffer. She did not take a pill to numb her pain, nor was there any mechanism used to dull it. Every moment was with full intensity as she watched His mutilated body be drained more and more of fluid and blood until He took His last breath, giving His life for His precious souls. 

A person watching someone linger with cancer can identify with Mary as she watched her beloved Son die. 

We will die. 

We must keep our focus on the life hereafter. 

A woman of beauty, our Mother Mary, God allowed Mary to suffer. 

  

Luke 2: 35

and a sword will pierce your soul too—so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare.’

7. The Burial of Jesus

 

 

R. Many times we try to alleviate suffering from our lives. 

    Suffering was a major part of the life of Mary. 

    Her heart was filled with such knowledge. She knew joy and suffering. She watched her Son die a pitiable death. Jesus is the Lamb of God. 

    We think we are so smart here. Do we really know the ways of our God? We think the way it is at present may go on and on. The flower eventually withers and fades and the beauty of the full blossoming flower goes with time. A flower, once an instrument of awe because of its beauty, may soon be thrown on a dung heap pile. 

    Our bodies may deteriorate and decay, but God promises eternal life to those who love and serve Him. 

    Be with Mary outside the tomb of Christ. Feel the emotion in Mary’s heart. 

    Pray for sorrow for our sins and light to know God more and more. 

    Contemplate the joy of Mary to know Christ has risen. 

    She saw her little baby born in Bethlehem. Now she sees Him die on the cross. Christ her beloved Son, rose victorious. We receive a sharing in His Divine life through baptism. 

    The rosary is so beautiful. We meditate on the lives of Jesus and Mary. 

    We identify our lives with Theirs. We live His life, death and resurrection in our lives. We ask God to help us grow in a greater likeness to the New Adam and the New Eve. 

    Many times we take our health for granted. God can call us from this life at any moment.

Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary

February 22, 1995

1. The Prophecy of Simeon
Mary, Joseph and the child Jesus went to the temple. Simeon, the prophet, inspired by the Holy Spirit, met them and told Joseph and Mary of the great sufferings of Jesus and Mary. He told Mary that a sword would pierce her heart. From that point on, Mary ever remembered the prophecy of Simeon whenever she beheld her child. When she looked at His little body, even as an infant, she knew He would suffer. Every time she clothed Him and watched Him at play, her heart was torn in her chest as she knew what He would suffer. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

2. The Flight into Egypt
Joseph was told by the angel to flee. Joseph, Mary and the child Jesus had to flee because of what might happen to Jesus. They had to pack for a long stay. The child Jesus was so small! They left on their journey, hearts full of fear, trying to protect Jesus. They were forced to flee into Egypt.

3. Jesus Is Lost, In the Temple
Imagine the sufferings in Mary's heart when she realized the child Jesus was not with them. Think of how it would be to lose your child and not know where he was or if anything happened to him. With sorrow in their hearts, Mary and Joseph returned to Jerusalem to look for the child Jesus. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

4. Jesus Carries His Cross
Song: See the eyes that look at Mary, her tender infant child. See the child's Heart beat so tenderly, the Savior of the world!
See the eyes of Jesus and Mary as they met on Calvary. Mary's Heart knew Jesus' Heart so well! From the first moment of conception and throughout His life, Mary was so connected with Jesus and now she peered into His eyes. The crown of thorns adorned His Head! Blood ran down His face! A heavy cross on His back! Wounded, His whole body covered with bleeding wounds! And her whole life flashed before her, the life that she had spent with Jesus. This was the beloved child that she had held in her arms when Simeon told Mary that 'a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!'

5. Jesus Dies on the Cross
Mary stood under Jesus' cross as He was put to death. The child that she had held in her arms as Simeon prophesied, And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary! Now Jesus is dead on the cross! He gave His flesh, He gave His blood so that we might be with Him forever in heaven. He held not back. He gave His all. He calls out to us this day to see through the eyes of His mother as she appears and calls out with a Heart of great love, "Return to the love of my Son! He is with you this day. He remains with you, no less present than the day that He hung on the cross, in the Eucharist. He longs for you to come and be with Him. He is in your brother. How can you not love your brother when Jesus died for your brother?"

Her Heart was pierced with a sword. His Heart was pierced with a lance. What came forth was blood and water, the sacramental life of the church. He lives with us this day in the Church. He gives to us His sacraments, the source of His life! He gives to us the Sacrament of Penance whereby any sin that we commit can be taken away through the priest. He wants us to be so close to Him! He gives us everything to be close to Him. But we see with such limited vision only those things that are right before our face, when the true reality is that which we don't see with our eyes, the reality of the invisible divinity of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, in the consecrated Host! This is reality! This is our life! This is our power! This is God! And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

6. Jesus Is Taken Down from the Cross
If we ever doubted for one second that we were loved, we could visualize the picture of Mary as she sat beneath the cross with the lifeless, battered, bruised and bloodied body of her Son in her arms, the same child that she held when Simeon prophesied her suffering. He gave His last breath. He gave the last beat of His Heart. He gave His all! This is the way He complied with the Will of the Father. He came to show us the way. He died in perfect peace. To His death He was in peace because He knew the Father's love. The Father loves us so much that He gave His only begotten Son for love of us! The Spirit descended upon the Virgin Mary and the Word was made flesh! The love of the Two Hearts! Such immense love beating for us!

In all love there is suffering. Her Heart was pierced with a sword. His Heart was pierced with a lance. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

7. Jesus Is Locked in the Tomb
And now Jesus, His body lifeless, is locked in a tomb! What cold reality for Mary to realize that His body is now gone! A stone separated her from her Son!

He gave His last breath! He gave the last beat of His Heart for love of each one of us! And she comes to us this day with her sweet, beautiful voice and she asks us to go to her Son and love Him! How can we refuse Jesus who spread His arms and gave His life for each and every one of us? How can we not trust Him when He loved us so much that He allowed them to tear His flesh, to crown Him with piercing thorns and, lastly, to hang Him on a cross? He truly gave His life for us! He, truly God, is with us this day, the same as the day He died on the cross, in the tabernacle! And we take it so lightly! Death has no power over Him! Locked in the tomb for three days, He rose triumphant on the third day as He had foretold. He comes to give us life. He gives us the sacrament of Baptism that initiates us into His life, that makes us children of God and heirs of heaven if we remain in the state of grace. He asks two things: love of God and love of one another! He came to show us the way and His way is love. To His death on the cross He loved each one of us! He calls out to each one of us here today to be His soldiers, to march on a world that has forgotten God, that has forgotten what it is like to love! It is a battle to live in this world. But the battle is won with hearts that are filled with His love, empowered by the grace and might that He pours out in the Eucharist. He calls out for us to come to the Eucharist and to the tabernacle and be fed with His very flesh and blood. To feed on Divine Life, the greatest nourishment, the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God! This is the love He gives. This is the love He asks us to share.

 


From Blue Book II - Only Jesus Can Warm You, p. 70 (excerpt)

Jesus: ... As you experience Me more, your heart expresses your feelings in your chest. My heart is on fire for love of all My beautiful children. I loved you to My death. I could have, at any moment, not continued or completed such an act of perfect love but, for the great love of you and obedience to My Father, I died a brutal death on a cross. ...


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

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

Excerpts from the Rosary of

September 5, 2010

transcribed from a live tape

                Wedding at Cana

Jesus: What is important in your life? That is the question that I ask of you today? For if you have anything in your life, before Me, you are missing the boat. I am your God and I will have no gods before Me.

Jesus: Live in the truth and the truth will set you free. If you tell lies you will be bound as one that is tied to a tree. And you are missing the great gift that I gave, for you, My precious, that I was beaten and crowned with thorns, that My body was filled with lacerations, My hands with nails, My feet nailed to the cross. And My last thoughts were of you, precious, sweet one. How is it that you want something that is like-holding on to an empty bag?

Jesus: And what good does it do Me to tell you about doing My will over and over and over again. And when you fail saying to you, My child, this offends My precious Heart of love, when I have so richly blessed you and in your willfulness, you turn away. I have put into this earth, you as a gift, to do the work that I have called you to, the way that I desire. When you fight Me, you fight the way that is the best way for your happiness.

Jesus: I have called you to serve Me. Why do you deceive Me?

Jesus: How many times have you chosen your own will, when you knew I was calling you to do something specific. And how the disaster unfolded to becoming bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger, and how empty you were inside. My child, live to do the will of your Heavenly Father, with love and enthusiasm, to give yourself in one accord in the plan of the Father.

R. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus I place my trust in Thee.

  

Kingdom of God

Jesus: And I called you My chosen one, I called you to follow in My footsteps. And you know the story, the story of the betrayer, the one who betrayed Me for 30 pieces of silver. And you know the story, the story of Peter who although, he made many errors and he sinned, was repentant in his heart. Let your hearts be holy that you are ready to confess your sin and say that you are sorry. I am a God of justice and I am a God of love. Do not offend your God who loves you.

  

Transfiguration

Jesus: One of the things that you must learn is to go in and out of doors. You see the Apostles who saw the shining gift that was given to them before them. But in the great gift that was given, they soon came down the mountain, and their hearts were changed because of the miracle that was given to them. It is constancy that I seek. It is a heart that is in love with Me. It is the one that lives in truth that is united, most deeply to Me. For in any deception, your heart is driven far from Me, and in the lies, the heart is made more and more dark.

    My little babies, I have given to you so many rich gifts. And you can call to mind Adam and Eve and the gifts they were given and how they offended God, because of their disobedience, because of their sin. When you have sinned, admit the sin. Say you are sorry. Help make reparation for your sin and the sins of the world. For what is it for you to say you do a good work, when the right hand that gives, is lying to the left hand that hangs. I say to you, fold your hands in reverence to the Lord, that your hands are a mighty gift in every prayer of your heart, that you give in truth and love. For you deceive yourself far more than anyone else and you set a trap that will lead to your own unhappiness. Be true to your heart. Be true to Me.

Jesus: The more you distance yourself from Me, the harder your heart becomes, for your heart was created for Me, and to know Me you must live in the truth, for I am the way, the truth, and the life. It is not that you can let yourself have little lies in your life, for little sins lead to bigger sins. And you open a door of disobedience to the commandments that I have given to you. I am a good God. If you can look at Adam and Eve and see the gifts that they were given, and ask yourself how could they offend God, and be disobedient. Ask yourself how do I offend my God who is so good to me today? And why do I tell myself that something else is more important than God?

Jesus: Oh yea, come to Me with a humble and contrite heart, that you see the good that you are doing, but that you do not close your eyes to the evil within you that needs attention, that you will grow more and more in My image and likeness, that you will not grow weary, but be strengthened as one trying to perfect an art, that they may perform the race for eternity.

Jesus: Think not of yourselves first, but for the love of God, that He is first in your lives, for what good does it do a man to run a race that leads to a dead end.

Jesus: And you came to Me and I said to you My child, I want to make you a fisher of men. Die to your ways, your bad habits and live the virtuous life.

Jesus: It is far better that you work out your problems here than on the other side.

Jesus: You have a free will. Use it wisely. Live according to the Father's will in love and your life will be a life of happiness. Choose your own will opposed to God's will and you are a rival to the plan of the Father and the author of your own misery.

  

The Institution of the Eucharist

Jesus: I have called you to the banquet table. I have given to you the feast, and the feast that I give to you is Myself, My Body and My Blood, for you are so precious to Me, My child. The Father created you and He gave you your life, uniquely, that you would serve Him, that you would tell others of His Kingdom, that you would realize how short your life really is and it is promised to no man. But as I speak you do not listen, for you think that your life will go on and on and on. When you could be snatched in your sleep. What will you say then to the one who calls you? Are you ready? Are you ready to meet Him? If this was the last day of your life, would you continue with your heart the way that it is now? This is the question that you must ask yourself, for My child you never know the day nor the hour.

    For you have been called to the altar of the Lord to serve Him and to live in the truth, to be My disciples, to spread the love of My Sacred Heart and My Mother's Immaculate Heart through the world, to call to others to pray for the priests, the Church and the world. And I have watched many things that have led you far, far away from your calling. When I call will you be ready? Do you know the day or the hour? Do you think that you will be told? This is a mission that I have given to you that is a mission that is most serious to the world. So many distractions. Do not give into satan. For he wants to lead you astray and take you home with him. I call you. Will you answer Me? Will you answer Me?

Mary: And I came to you, My children for so many years dressed in such beauty. Days wasted. When I call to you, answer me please. I am Mary your Mother. God the Father allowed me to appear to you, that you would know the seriousness of this mission, that you would spread the devotion to my Immaculate Heart to my little ones and to tell them to make Jesus the King and center of their hearts, to spread the priestly writing and begin the prayer chapters all over the world. God has given to you such gifts. Do not turn inward and turn away from Him. Spread your arms in love. Look at Jesus on the cross. I cried bloody tears for my children this day that are being taught what they are taught even in the Catholic Schools. Your prayers are so important to God, in spreading the prayer chapters in the different languages and calling the people that He has asked you to call, in telling them of the Blue Books and of His love. Spread the pictures of my beauty to them, for I appear all dressed in white, your Mother, the perfect handmaid of the Lord.

Mary: From this building, my precious ones, I will reach the world, but you must have faith in your hearts, for Jesus has called you here and the Father has a plan. Be open. Do not control. Listen to the plan of your Heavenly Father. It is satan who tells you to control when you need to surrender and listen to me, Mary your Mother and my Son Jesus.

R. She just looks white. It just is strange. Like she said. And then I remember when she appeared like that once, as the Bridal Mary. It was a 5th, I think, March the 5th. Christ wants us to be the brides of Christ. The Church to be this unit — so in love with God. ...

Hail Holy Queen

Mary: I cry blood for the little ones that will be lost forever. I come to you, Mary, the Immaculate Heart and I ask you to spread this devotion to the souls of this earth, that they will know a refuge in coming to my heart, for I will take them to the Heart of my Son and it is there they will know peace and they will know God's love. This is the message that I gave at Fatima. To spread the devotion to my heart and to the Heart of my Son. All these years later again, I give this message from this place where I appeared for over 7 years. And I have been ignored and ignored and ignored. My children, wake up to the 'wake up call' that God is giving to you this day. I am Mary your Mother. There is much sinfulness in the world.

    And the Movement that Jesus has given to Fr. Carter and to you is the Movement to help renew the Church and world. But He has called you to serve. Have you answered, really answered as you know He has called you? Or do you always say to yourself, well I'll give this little bit and somebody else can take up my slack. No my children, the troops are very small and the mission is very large. There is no overlap. There's holes where many said no and live in misery. You too with a sheepish commitment have not answered the way you should.

    I cry as your heavenly Mother from my building in Florida on this September the 5th to remember the darkness of September the 5th, 2001, before the catastrophe of the twin towers, for your buildings towered high into the sky, but they were destroyed, like the souls that are burning from their sins in the fires of hell. As your heavenly Mother I cry blood to heed the words that I give to you this day, to spread this Movement as God has asked, the writings, the prayer chapters, the devotion to Our Hearts in the homes, to the people, to the nursing home people, to the children, to give as God has called you to give, to come to the retreats, to pray on the 5ths and the 13ths. Oh let somebody else do it. I call you now, my chosen ones, to listen.

R. She is like so white, just pure white.

Prayer of St Ignatius

Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Permit me not to be separated from Thee
From the wicked foe defend me
at the hour of my death call me
and bid me come to Thee
That with Thy saints I may praise Thee
For ever and ever. Amen.

Meditations on the Rosary

The Sorrowful Mysteries

1. The Agony in the Garden.

Jesus: My agony, I knew full well every blow, every wound, the crowning, the crucifixion. I saw My Mother’s suffering. I knew all that would happen. I sweat Blood. I suffered so much mental anguish for you, beloved one, for you. I said, "yes" to all I knew would follow, "yes" for you, knowing how you one day would love Me too! Oh, how I love you. Will you say "yes" to the suffering I send to you? Will you say "yes" to loving My beloved ones? Say, "YES" to Me today. I loved you so!

2. The Scourging at the Pillar

Mary: I am the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I love you with my tender Heart. I heard the blows they gave my Son. I scarce could look up. I heard the blows, the awful blows. My Son stood in silence while they beat Him.

Jesus: All the whipping, all the brutality, the blows covered My entire Body. I bled profusely. I stood in My own Blood. These were My beloved ones who beat Me. They tore My flesh until it hung from My Body and they laughed at their handiwork.

Do your brothers persecute you and say mean things to you? Do as I did, respond with love. Pray for their conversion. Live to help them get to heaven.

3. The Crowning with Thorns

Jesus: Think of someone you love very deeply yelling awful accusations at you. How, how it wounds your heart. My child! I sat there while they crowned Me with thorns and hollered awful accusations at Me. They were My beloved ones. Yet they stood there spitting at Me and hollering awful things at Me. Those who I dearly loved mocked Me and insulted Me and hurled their ugly hatred and lies at Me. I accepted all they did with a bleeding Heart and forgave them and loved them still.

Oh, you do not know suffering. This world is wounding My aching Heart. People are indifferent and hateful. They mistreat one another and are proud of their actions. Pray for your beloved persecutors. Don’t hate them. Act as I did toward those who tore My flesh and mocked Me. They were so engulfed in darkness. They did not know what they were doing.

All that matters is how you love Me and one another. Love those who hate you. My way is a hard way. You pick up your cross. When they hurt you and holler at you, look to heaven and praise the Lord for the trial. It is in suffering you are drawn closer to My precious Heart. I shed My Blood for you. I suffered for you. Will you not suffer when I ask you to?

4. The Carrying of the Cross

Mary: I scarce could stand to walk the way with Him! I was so sick at what they had done, but I wanted to be with my Son. I walked by the grace of God.

Jesus: My suffering was intensified by the sorrow and suffering of My Mother. My eyes met hers and I saw her red, teary face. All they did to Me, but to watch My beloved Mother suffer! She heard the cross as it thumped up the hill. The sounds were so loud and at the sight she had to look away.

Stand by Me and walk this road to Calvary. Listen and see My beaten Body. Hear the jeers of the crowd. Hear the thumping of the cross. Listen when it falls hard on Me and I can scarce go on any more. Walk with Me and be there. Then, think of your little crosses I ask you to carry. Do not put them down. Accept them for Me. It is in your crosses you are drawn closer to Me. I endured all this suffering for deep and ardent love of you and I would do it today for you alone.

5. The Crucifixion

Mary (May 25, 1994): As tenderly as I beheld my beautiful Son in my arms with such love, I watched His death on the cross with such anguish. My Heart was torn apart by the sight of Him hanging in such pain. I scarce could stand. I was held up by my beloved John. Joy and pain, the pain to behold Him and His suffering and the joy to know your salvation was won through His Blood.

Such lamenting. I could not cry deep enough for the anguish I felt. His Blood was spent. His life was given. He did this, my child, for love of you. I am your Mother. I love you, my precious ones. I love you as I love my beautiful Son, Jesus.

I am Mary, your beloved Mother. Call to me. I know your sufferings. I will comfort you. I suffered for love of you. You are so precious to us. Live in the love of my Son. He is with you this day in the Eucharist. I am Mary, your Mother. Thank you for responding to my call.

Jesus: The crucifixion. How do I tell you that I died for you? Do you even know I would do it today, just for you? They nailed My beautiful hands and feet to the cross. Big gigantic nails they pounded into My precious hands. Such hard hearts. They pounded the nails through My feet. Blood squirted out and they continued. Such hardness of hearts. Look at your hands, My child. Would you allow someone to nail them to a cross? Would you withstand this torture for love? This is My love for you. It is the love that made Me lay down My life for you.

I call you to surrender. Open your arms as I did when I died on the cross. Let all your worldly possessions drop around you and you will experience the joy of being free, of being united to Me, of letting go and of knowing that I, God, tend to your every need. To My death on the cross I loved you, and I love you this way this very day. Let go and give it all to Me. I will care for you far better than you could for yourself. I am God and I love you more than you can love yourself.

R. Jesus is dead, hanging on the cross, arms outstretched. His feet are not even on the ground. He is hanging by nails on a piece of wood. What do we hold on to? He wants us in midair, in total surrender.

Jesus: Oh, little ones, how you squander your possessions. How you hold on to people. How you won’t let go. See Me in total surrender. I gave My very life for you. What do you hold on to, My little ones? Little bits and pieces you give to Me and you hold tight to your lives. All will go up in smoke and only the things of God will remain. Not one pair of shoes do you take with you. Only your love, given to God and to others!

Mary's Message

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

5. August 18, 1994

The Oneness Between Mary and Jesus

R. I see her hold His lifeless body under the cross. I see her tenderness, holding Him as a Baby. I see their oneness in the peering eyes. I see her with the sword in her heart, pierced because of the sufferings of her Son. I see her giving birth to her beautiful Baby.

I see her sorrowful face, her beautiful face, her old face, her young face; all reflections of her life and His life, joined in joy, joined in suffering, joined - Mother and Son - all through Their lives, during the Passion, now joined in heaven. They want to draw us to eternal salvation.

A loving Mother, truly by our sides, waiting to listen to our problems, and Jesus forever with her.

She stands under the cross and places our burdens there with us as we, hand-in-hand with our loving Mother, give up our frustrations, our crosses to Him, our loving Savior.

This is life, to be fixed so closely united with the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, all day surrendering ourselves to Their loving Hearts.

This is warmth and security to me. I realize so very much Their presence. This is the reality of this world. It is God’s world. We dwell here in the hope of achieving everlasting life. Jesus Christ is truly present this day in the Eucharist, no less than the day He walked this earth.

Mary is so closely united to her Son. To love Jesus is to love Mary, to love Mary is to love Jesus.

Mary, help me to love your beloved Son.

Jesus, help me to love Your beloved Mother.

Mary is always leading me to the love of her precious Son. All the meditations on the rosary about Mary lead me to Him. She is our spiritual Mother. To think of His being formed in her womb is so beautiful. I ask Mary to form me in her womb so I can be more closely united to her Son. For nine months He was formed in the womb of His loving Mother. For my lifetime, I am forever formed in her womb to deepen my union with Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the Father.

The protection and security, to be surrounded by Mary’s womb, is so beautiful. She delivers us up to union with her precious Son.

The more I meditate on Their lives in the rosary (I really meditate on each bead), these beautiful mysteries of Their lives, the more I am so closely joined to the union of Mary’s heart and Jesus’ Heart. This is my refuge. This is our life, to be joined so intimately to Their Hearts!

She draws me to her and draws me to praying the rosary, like steel to a magnet. I get such comfort sharing Their lives. It is there I realize so much Their reality. They are truly here, this very day -- we are not ever alone!  I am united to Their lives. This comfort exists all through the day, for They are with me.

I pray in front of the big statue of Mary and she is alive to me.

I Cried as I Knew the Suffering of Jesus and Mary

R.  Praying the peace rosary, I couldn't look at Mary's statue. I instantly started to cry and was so connected to her suffering. Just wanted to cry--it wasn't my tears as I was really happy, but I felt so close to her. Same as when I sat in front of the tabernacle and cried. I just have to wait and feel the sorrow and cry until it passes, and then I am close to Them.

     I remember at a Friday Sacred Heart Mass, Father Carter said "they broke the legs, then they pierced Jesus' Heart and blood and water came out. I wanted to cry. I feel such sorrow every Friday from 12 to 3 o'clock - it is especially awful during these hours.

     It began on December 18, 1993: Jesus said, "I died for you-what more do you want?" I had such presence of Him. It was as though He was sitting there. I felt His emotions in myself. It felt as if He was there with me even though I didn't see Him. I am so united to Him.

     I feel Jesus' or Mary's emotions, they let me feel their emotions.

     The tears that come from my eyes, and I feel this intense pain in my heart, it is deep-seated, deeper than I can express. It is so deep, I cannot get to the bottom of it, but it is a silent, accepting cry, a wanting to scream from the very depth of my soul, but a silent surrender to the will of God and acceptance of this suffering for the greater good, knowing this is coming from God.

     This closeness in the suffering of Jesus, I receive at this point I am in this union so deep in God. An ecstasy involves so deep a connection with God - this is a suffering ecstasy. I am given this emotion--it is from God.

     A total submissiveness to express these emotions. Time stands still. I am removed in a way from this world.

     Knawing pain in my heart, and awareness of my heart. I feel so close to Mary and God now. I feel removed from this place. It is like I have been touched and have seen heaven and I know we are not to worry, only love God and help others to get there.

     My letters have progressed to such emotion when I receive them. He said, "I watched you" - such connection to Him, as if He and Mary are here!

     When I am experiencing this, such intense awareness of their presence to the point the world around me seems non-existent. I am united to God.

    This is real. We are living in God's world. We must love God and one another and help others to get to heaven. Pray constantly.

     I realize how souls are going to hell, how souls need my prayers, how souls all over the world are in darkness and I realize the urgency of this call.

    Jesus told me He wanted me to go through these experiences at His Mother's House (the old seminary where Mary was appearing to me daily). He told me to pray here and I would have such experiences. I have written most of His letters here and experienced so many deep presences of the Almighty God here at His Mother's House (the old seminary).

 

7. August 10, 1994 - After Mass, Fr. Smith’s Chapel

And Their Eyes Peered Into One Another's Eyes

R. See Mary as she beholds the baby in her arms. She looks at Him so tenderly. His sweet baby eyes look up at the eyes of His loving Mother. Such tenderness between Mother and Son, such oneness to hold her infant Son so lovingly in her arms. Oh, do we ever know the tenderness between a baby and his loving mother?

A life of close union between this Mother and this Son, a life of her looking into His loving eyes. Such silent, but strong and loving communication! Such a strong bond-Their eyes meeting-from one soul to the other soul.

Song: See the Eyes That Look at Mary (Verse l)…

Deep, deep communication, a deep bond, indescribable in words, a touching of the souls! And the peering look between Son and Mother on the road to the crucifixion. What a peering look, what communication between this Son and Mother. Seeing the other suffer was as agonizing as each's very own suffering-suffering and oneness between a Son and His Mother. A peering look, deep into the very souls. Such an intimacy between Them!

How can one describe in words this oneness, this union between the Son and His Mother? The perfect love between Him and her. Total giving of each person in such love to the other. To see the suffering of the other was as agonizing as-if not more than-each's own suffering.

How His passion and crucifixion were intensified by the sufferings of His dear Mother! How her sufferings were such a sharing in our redemption, the swords that pierced her Heart! The eyes of Mary that invisibly bled as she watched such brutality to the beloved Baby she once carried in her womb and held in her arms!

Song: Little Baby Hands and Feet…

Mary held the Child Jesus when He was a baby; she watched Him and cared for Him as a little boy; she was so attentive to the needs of her little Son. Will we ever know this connectedness between Their loving Hearts? Do we know this oneness? The peering eyes on the way to Calvary tell the story. They tell the story of this oneness. They tell the story of her watching this horrid event of her beautiful baby Son and His horrible passion and death.

Her eyes! Oh, Mary, help me to see the love of Jesus through your eyes! You watched Him as a baby, you watched Him as a child. You watched Him grow into the beautiful Man He became and you, Mary, watched Him all through this bitter passion and death. Your eyes saw the love that He gave for us. Now you come, Mary. You appear to tell us to go to this Son. You knew more than anyone His love to suffer so for us. You come and appear with blood in your eyes and tears running down your cheeks. You show me your sorrowful face, your young face, your old face, your joyful face. This was the face Jesus peered at as He walked His walk to Calvary. This was the face that appears now to tell us the story of His love this very day. I see your parade of faces, Mary, old and young, sorrowful and joyful. I see these faces that Jesus beheld. Your face tells the story of His love for us.

Mary: This is my beloved Son. This is my Baby. This is the Child I bore in my womb. He came to give you love. He came to be God-made-Man among you this very day. He is, my children, no less present in the Eucharist than He was at Calvary and you go after such incidental things. My Son loves you. I show you my face so you can tell the world of our love. Live our lives in the rosary. Let our lives live in your day. The way to eternal happiness is to be likened to my beautiful Son.

I watched my Son. I lead you to the ardent love of my Son, Jesus. His Heart burns for love of you. Come to Him this day. Give Him your love. Spend time with Him. He is alive and in your midst in the Eucharist.

R. Note: I smelled roses very strongly throughout this message.

Song: See the Eyes That Look at Mary (Verse 2)…

This is the Son of the Father, the Son of God, born of Mary through the Holy Spirit, and He lives this day in your hearts. Share His love for you. Go to Him through Mary's Heart. She who is so closely united to Jesus! Their Hearts are so close to one another! As their eyes were joined in such oneness, Their Hearts are joined in such intimacy. Go to Jesus' Heart through His beloved Mother, through her who bore Him in her womb, her who watched Him give Himself for love of you.

8.  February 23, 1994 - I Died For You

Jesus:  I want this emotion in the letter I told you to write. I, Jesus, Son of God, talk to you with such emotion! I am He Who died a brutal death for love of you. I died for you! I love you this much, to give My Life! Yet you couldn't even write when I asked you. You must do exactly as I say. I do not want you ever to say no to Me!

I have such emotion! I am telling you how I died a brutal death and you, My child, did not write for Me! What more can I do? What more do they want? You put others before Me or you would do as I command. I want you to do as I tell you every moment.

I am the Lord. I am the Son of God. Such emotion I let you feel for My death. I died. I am a person. I was human and I died for you. Think of yourself giving your life for someone and they do not care. What can I do to shake you? What more can I say? I am here and I am loving you and pleading with you to listen to Me with this emotion that God is telling you. I am Jesus. I died for you. I gave My life for you and do you even listen, My little sweet one? You didn't want to write it for My children. When I give you a command, you write. When I say do, you do. Selflessness! I am pushing you because I need your total surrender. Do not ever deny My writing to My loved ones. You have a responsibility. I don't care where you are when I talk. I am God and I talk to you. I am so present to you.

Listen. I need your selflessness. I need your surrender. I need your life, given for love of Me and Me alone. I need you to be the light that shines on the hill, that does not go in and out but is constant in My love. I need your commitment. I need your attention at every moment. I am feeding you My words every moment on paper and in your hand. You must obey Me exactly as I command. No questions, only action. I want action. Now! You write when I say write. I don't care where you are. You worry not for others. I am giving you the mighty medicine. Would you tell the doctor to wait? I am God and I do not ever want to wait while you play a safe game with Me. When I say do something, I want you to do it. You are My beloved and I am filling you with fire.

I am pushing you to do that which I need done. Do not ever stop to look around. Keep your focus on Me and My commands for you. I am using you every moment. I must be able to count on your constant consent to do My will immediately! I am calling you to this work and I want you to comply. I love you ardently. I am so full of love for you. Focus on this and this alone. I am Who am. I am God, child. Do not ever hesitate. Do not doubt or think. You must act as I act in you or My work will not be done.

Be selfless about My commands. You will do My work. You will spread My words of love and create emotion with My songs and I will use you to bring My flock to My love. I love every soul! You must spread My love.

Note: (Meditating on the Crucifixion) Going to Mass at the seminary at 8:00 a.m. was rushed. He said to me, "Where are you going, child. Do you not feel My presence with you?" A calm came over me. Then He started lamenting how He died for us, how He is a true person and He loves us so much. He said, "I died for you."

R. He gave His life for us. He is the little lamb led to the slaughter out of love for us. He said, "I need you to do this work now and I am pushing you." He was so upset! He died for us. He loves us so much as to give His life.

He begged me to spread His love, to tell others how He, bloodied, bruised and beaten, gave us His life.

Jesus: I am God. I am God. I died. Spread My love now! Now! Now! Now! Now! I am begging you not to hold back! Read these letters now, read and learn about My love. I beckon you to speak of My love. Shout it from the high roof. Proclaim it in the cities. Jesus Christ died for love of you and He is risen! I am He Who is God and I died for you!

Listen and preach My love and emotion here. Priests will create little cities, little cities in each church to spread the light of Christ to this sick world. Each priest can create his own little city, a powerhouse of God's love. God has all the power. His power is endless. It never runs out. It is might. You have no power except through Him. Churches filled with the intimate love of Jesus will be powerhouses.

I am God, My little ones. God can do all things. I can make your cities light up the darkness. I am the Way, the Truth, the Life. I am the light of life. I am God! I can do all things. I want to act in you. You need to be in constant union with Me. My priests, you need to be selfless. My soul and yours are one. I want to act in you.

Hold not back. Pray the Prayer for Union with Me.

end of February 23, 1994

9. On His Passion - August 23, 1993

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

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

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

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

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

10. On His Passion - August 23, 1993 - continues

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

O Queen of peace, Pray for us. 
In all our tribulations, Pray for us. 
In our illnesses and pains, Pray for us. 
In our sorrows and afflictions, Pray for us. 
In our need and destitution, Pray for us. 
In our fears and dangers, Pray for us. 
In the hour of our death, Pray for us. 
On the Day of Judgment, Pray for us. 

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, Spare us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, Graciously hear us, O Lord. 
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, Have mercy on us, O Lord.

Pray for us, O Sorrowful Virgin, 
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. 

Let Us Pray

We beseech Thee, O Lord Jesus Christ, let Thy Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, 
whose holy soul was pierced by a sword of sorrow at the hour of Thy Passion, 
implore Thy mercy for us, both now and at the hour of our death, 
Who livest and reignest, world without end.  Amen.

 

3. R. God thank You.

4. Isaiah 61: 10

I exult for joy in Yahweh, 
my soul rejoices in my God, 
for he has clothed me 
    in garments of salvation, 
he has wrapped me in a cloak 
    of saving justice, 
like a bridegroom wearing his garland, 
like a bride adorned in her jewels. 
 

Isaiah 62: 5

Like a young man marrying a virgin, 
your rebuilder will wed you, 
and as the bridegroom rejoices in his bride, 
so will your God rejoice in you.

5. Sing: Holy Is His Name

6. R. The Lord gives sight to the blind — do not lose hope.

7. Luke 1: 67-79 - The Benedictus

His father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke this prophecy: 

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel
for he has visited his people, 
    he has set them free
and he has established for us 
    a saving power 
in the House of his servant David, 
just as he proclaimed, 
by the mouth of his holy prophets 
    from ancient times, 
that he would save us from our enemies 
and from the hands of all those 
    who hate us

and show faithful love to our ancestors
and so keep in mind his holy covenant
This was the oath he swore 
to our father Abraham, 
that he would grant us, free from fear, 
to be delivered 
    from the hands of our enemies, 
to serve him in holiness and uprightness 
in his presence, all our days. 
And you, little child, 
you shall be called 
    Prophet of the Most High, 
for you will go before the Lord 
to prepare a way for him

to give his people knowledge of salvation 
through the forgiveness of their sins, 
because of the faithful love of our God 
in which the rising Sun 
    has come from on high to visit us, 
to give light to those who live 
in darkness and the shadow dark as death

and to guide our feet 
into the way of peace.

 

8. 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

9. From Blue Book II p. vi Picture of Jesus' Heart on fire.

Jesus: My Heart is an open furnace of endless love. It is open and on fire for love of you, My dear ones. I held back not one drop of My blood. I spread My arms and gave the last beat of My Heart for you. I come to you in this book with this Heart open. It is a roaring fire, aflame for love of you every second, even when you are not thinking about Me. Read My love letters, written just for you. When you see this Heart, open and on fire, remember I love you in just this way, this very moment.     12/19/94

 

10. From Blue Book I - Cling to Me - May 13, 1993

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Jesus: My dear child, if you stay close to Me, then I live in you and you live in Me. I am He Who created you and I love you with such an intensity that you will never know. My words are your truth. You must abide in My heart in all things. There is no room for doubt. My ways are steadfast, direct, and without error.

    You must stay rooted in Me to ward off the power of the evil one. His grip is paralyzing and crippling. His power is stronger every day.

    When you live in Me, I am in your heart and he has no power over Me. I am your God. I am your true lover. I want to protect you. I want to guard you from this force. Stay rooted firmly in Me and he will have no power.

    I am He Who comforts you. My hand is upon you. Hold tight to Me, My child. My eyes are fixed right on you. You are My most precious child. I love you as no other can. My arms are about you. My tenderness surrounds you. My love is in your heart. You go not alone. I walk with you.

    I share every aspect of your life with you. Cling to Me, feel My presence. It is warm and secure within your chest. There is no room for fear, for I cast out fear and bring you comfort and joy.

                R. Awake my soul, Oh God, to know
                    Your love —

                That I will be loving in my heart —

                Jesus: For you are to love in your heart —
                    Change your hearts —

                R. Pour out Your Love to me oh God — I want Your love —
                I am your bride — Oh Lord — You are my bridegroom.

                Jesus: Make reparation for the ones who wish you dead —
                    for they are angry and full of sin —

                I want to bring you greater life —
                I want you to love Me —
                Love Me so you will live —

                Sing: I love you Jesus —

                Jesus: That your hearts are filled with love and
                    you live in love of your fellows —

                Love Me, love your brothers, love
                    yourself as I love you —

                Be instruments of love —

                Let us serve the Lord —
                Let our lives be lived as God desires —
                Let our hearts be pure —

                The evil man - has malice in his heart and
                    he can project this hatred onto others who
                    have done him no harm

                Anger and darkness are hugged by the one
                    who in envy wishes the good man
                    to be harmed —

                God gives us our brothers to love and not to
                    be in competition with ones doing God's will —
                    or wishing to stop the just man because of
                    anger and darkness in us —

                Oh God bless us —
                Let us know Your love —

                Sing: Holy God

                Sing: How Great Thou Art —

                Jesus: My child —
                    a fool wants to tear down the work of the
                        just man for his own envy —
                    then he expects the just man to let
                        him do it —

                The just man seeks to do God's will —
                    when he is attacked by the evil man
                    he continues to act according to God's will,
                    but the evil man —
                    wants to sin and expects the just man
                        to lay down and let him do it —

                How vile is one who wished such harm
                    to others with their angry heart and
                    then tells themselves it is the other's fault —

                Joseph's brothers sold him and punished him
                    for his goodness

                Cain killed Abel

                They hung Me on a tree for I healed the
                    sick and performed miracles for all
                    to see —

                Oh evil lurks in the heart of the evil man and
                    his deeds are evil —
                    He wishes harm and
                    then he wants others to not get in his
                    way when he tears down to destroy what
                    one did to help build My Kingdom —

                R. The evil man says
                    I am acting in hatred and anger — you
                        deserve my evil deeds —

                    What the anger is in the man inflicting
                        it on others —

                    Our hearts should be so sensitive and loving of God —
                    Jesus' heart is so sweet and so kind —
                    He deserves sweet love —

                    To be a man like Jesus is to not be afraid
                        to pray sensitively in deep love of Jesus —

                    Loving Jesus —
                    Giving love to Jesus with a sensitive heart —

                With the violence in the world and television
                    we can become more and more hard in our
                    hearts reflecting the world —

                The sensitivity in loving is the way Jesus'
                    manly heart is —

                Jesus showed us how to be a man
                Jesus showed us how to be human —
                The more we are like Jesus — the more
                    perfected we are

                Jesus was kind and loving —
                Jesus was not vengeful — punishing —
                    getting the lead by hurting and bringing
                    others down —

                Jesus shows us His Perfect Heart of love

                In the Blue Books we hear Jesus say He needs
                    us with our feet in the air —
                    not looking back —
                    yearning for worldly ground —

                God wants us to reach others with His letters of love —

Sufferings are Golden Gems (excerpt)

January 20, 1994 6:00 a.m.

Jesus: ... My death and Resurrection are the redemption of all mankind. Focus on Me and My love for you. It is My love that will see you through all this.

Focus on Me and My love. Think of Me at My death. Remember My agony, all the blood I shed and the Passion I walked for love of you. Child, I love you this much this day. How can you ever doubt that anything I send you is not out of deepest love for you?

Focus on Me and My love and My work here. You must get both feet off the ground and move full steam ahead. Don't look back to the ground. I need your surrender totally to Me. I need your commitment totally to Me. I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.

In the end, it will be the things of Me and all that you did for My world that goes with you. All else here is of no account.

My work is your top priority. Your prayer life alone with Me is your utmost concern. You need to be with Me in front of the tabernacle. You need time alone with Me. Satan is going to try to trip you up. Do not focus on anything but the things of Me.

I come to you with such love. I am Jesus, who died for you. I have so much to give you. I will care for all the details in your life. Let go and surrender into My hands. When you worry, when you doubt, that is from Satan. You must be absolutely sure in Me and My work here.

Spend time with Me alone. Spend so much time with Me that you do not ever miss a moment of solitude with Me. Make Spiritual Communions all day. Do not ever take your eyes from Me. You need constant union with Me. Full steam ahead, total commitment, focus on My love for you—nothing else. Say the prayer for Union with Me and let your mind be engulfed in My love. Let go of every distraction and let Me in your heart to work.

Pray to the Holy Spirit for guidance. I am your God and I am so loving. I am Jesus Christ. I am truly here!

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusI Am the Light of the World, You Are My Lamp

January 21, 1994 5:10 a.m.

R. Dear Jesus, You are truly great. All honor and all praise is Yours. You are the light of the earth. You are one who cries out for us to amend our lives and we do not listen to what you tell us. We are not worthy of you, yet you love us so much. Oh Jesus, I love you.

Jesus: I am your Savior. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I have all the power. I am truly there, little one. I am with you in every one of your trials. I watch you like a doting mother. You are guarded by Me in all you do.

I am your God. I tend to your every need. Do not be troubled or look for answers. Put all your trust in Me and tend to the work at hand. I am yours and you are Mine. Ask for selflessness and let Me possess you.

Be simple. Only tend to things of God. I am what is important. Do not get anxious about this. What you are doing here will help many souls who are willing. Just keep working. Do not question. I am guiding your life.

I am ever attentive to your needs. My child, I love you so much. Do not worry or fret on anything. I am guarding your work here. Alleluia.

I am the Alpha and the Omega. I am He Whose bootstraps you are unworthy to tie. I am the Lord of all ages. I am God, child. Do you realize God is present and talking to you? Do not think. Just write and feel My presence so close to you.

I love everyone with such intense love. My soul is sad and My heart is heavy for what My children are doing in their lives.

I have all the power. I can stop it all and rock you in a moment, but I keep asking for your prayers. You faithful ones, you are the answer to the aching world. Your prayers are so powerful. Don't stand on a box and preach how bad the world is. They don't hear you. You waste your energy. You work yourself up. Preach only of My love. Pray constantly. By your example you teach mighty lessons.

The world is starving and the only thing they will take notice of is the food for their starving soul. They need food. The Mass is their salvation if they would go and listen to the readings and come with an open heart to receive all that they could there. But most of their hearts are closed and they are not in a state to receive Me. They have worshiped false gods and don't even know it.

You pray, little ones. The souls of your brothers are dependent on your prayers. The state of the world is dependent on your prayers. Pray the rosary. Pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Sit and develop an intimate love affair with Me. Go to daily Mass and Communion. Pray with your children. Play with them and stay close to them. Read them these letters.

Give others My words here. Tell them of My intense love for them and My longing to be alone with them. Tell them that God is waiting for them and that He has the cure for their aching hearts. Plant seeds about My love even when you are rejected. You are the dresser in a barren field. Do not cover your light. Let it shine to all so they may see your good works and praise your Father in heaven.

Pray to fight off Satan's distractions in your own lives. He wants you focused on yourselves and trouble in your life. Put your troubles at the foot of My cross and be the light in the darkness. Your light, your example in such darkness and your love given to the hardened heart are what will help save this cold world!

Do you underestimate your value here? You are candles in the darkest night. Satan wants to snuff you out. He wants you to remain, like the world, at unrest. You must go to the world prepared by My love. Your arms are hearts filled with My love. You are candles in the dark night. Offer up your struggles to Me that you might shine even brighter. Strive for holiness. Do not go to the negativeness of the world. Focus on the remedy: your prayers and My love.

Be the light in the darkness. Be ever up and ready for a battle with love and My operating in you. Stay so steadfast in Me that you allow Me to operate from you.

You are My soldiers in this cold, cold world. You are soldiers of love. Your arms are your warm and radiant hearts furnished by Me. I am all powerful. Do not ever underestimate what a heart fixed in Me will do in this world. Do not ever underestimate that when I operate from you I am God and I am all powerful.

Be My empty vessel to the world. Let Me possess your soul and operate from your very being. What might for your sick brothers! When you get caught up in their deeds and your distractions, you are stopping the flow of My love to your brothers. Be as an empty pipe. You exist to let My love flow constantly into and out of you. Do not clog up your pipe and stop My love and My light from reaching your brothers.

You are a light set on a hill that shines to all. A city is warmed by the love of Jesus if you keep yourselves fixed in Me. Do not give in to self-pity or wailing about your trials. Offer them up for strength. I am the light of the world and you are My lamp. Let Me shine from you. Let Me warm the cold heart. Become selfless and unattached. Your work is at hand. You indeed need My strength. Tell Satan to be gone and place your cares at My feet! Be about My work. I need to use you. Be an empty vessel and come and be filled by Me.

You are so valuable to Me. I need you now! Do not say no. Do not let Satan distract you. You are My precious little ones, such beautiful children. Live in My love and let Me live in you!

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusMy Power Is Endless

January 23, 1994 4:00 a.m.

Jesus: I am your God. I am here and ever present. This letter is for all and not for a few. Give this letter to every child, even the hardest of hearts. Let them all hear Me talk here.

I am your Savior. I am He Who saves you. I died for you that you might have life and have it more abundantly, but you do not understand such things. You are too wrapped up in the today of your life. You worry for needless tasks at hand and miss My divine, ardent love.

I am loving you always. My heart is full with the fire of My love. My heart is ablaze for you. I love you individually. I love you as you are. I do not love you if you are good and then abandon you in darkness.

My heart is on fire with love for you. Come to Me in your weariness. Come to Me in your joy. I never cast you off. I love you as you are. I want to give you My love. I want you to know that I am truly here just for you. I am a personal God. I am not a God far off that you cannot know. I am right with you always.

I love you with an ardent love. I love you, little one. Hear My voice proclaim such love for you. I am God and I come here to love you. You are a human being and God loves you. You are My precious little one. I want to share My love with you. I am God and I have gifts to give you that only I can give.

You wander this barren land in search of treasure. You seek idle pursuits. You look and do not find. The hungry soul seeks satisfaction in a cold, lonely world. The hearts of men have turned cold and are in darkness and you watch while your own heart grows so cold and empty in your chest.

I wait for you in the tabernacle. I have all you need. I give you Myself, God-made-man, in the Eucharist and you wander this empty land and do not find rest. You, My child, will never find rest. Your soul was created by The Father to know, love and serve God. The soul is only fed by God. You search, you wander, you look to all this world has to offer. You attempt to fill yourself with the things of the world, but you feel empty. You are empty and searching, but you search a barren desert.

You are searching for the love of God. Your soul was created to be filled by Me alone. To try to fill the soul with the things of the world is a futile search. You won't find even a crumb to satisfy the soul. So you wander, you wait, you are so stubborn. You have turned your backs on Me. I have tried to make you see Me and My ways but you, in your pride, think that you are autonomous.

You are not the end. You are not the one with the power! I have all the power! If I cease to think of you for one second, you cease to be. You think you are able to sustain yourself. You, My little ones, are totally dependent on Me for the air you breath. I could poison your air in one second or take it away. You are dependent on Me for the sunlight, for your water, for your warmth to heat your home.

I am in control! You are so silly to even think that you can control your life. Such ignorance, not to see that which is before you, to go to school so many years and not know the basic facts! Are you in control of the air you breath? Is it possible that it could be poisoned or cease to be? Then how do you, in all your pride, think you are in control? Could you freeze to death or are you totally in control of that?

Think, child. A power much greater than yourself is holding your life in His hands. I am constantly watching out for you. That is why your air is there, that is why you do not freeze. Why are there not dead birds about? Who cares for such little creatures? They do not have intelligence, yet they survive and chirp with joy.

The seasons come and go and the world just cares for itself. It keeps going. One season does not destroy the life of the next season. It all works. You in your ignorance tell yourself it all works and no one is running things. Try to create life. Man cannot create life from nothing, no matter how hard he tries. He cannot do it

You are so blind! Open your eyes. You have tunnel vision. The TV has become your god. It seems so powerful, but it is a box with signals running through it. In one second it is out and totally quiet. I am He Who has all the power. I am He Who gives life. I am He Who sustains you. I am He Who tends to the creatures of the earth and sends the tormenting weather. I am He Who am! I am He Whose might is endless. I am He. I am. Open your eyes and see all that is before you. Look beyond your cars and your man-made things and see all the things of God. See the air you breathe. See the sun that shines. See the water that you need so desperately. In one second I can show you My power!

I am the Lord thy God and thou shalt not have any gods before Me. I am He Who am. I am He Whose bootstraps you are unworthy to fasten, yet I come to you. God comes to you and gives you life. God comes to you and gives you love. God comes to you and cares for you and you turn your back and in your arrogance run away.

Yours has become an egotistical world. You have, in your sin, taken My name from the minds of your children. You have turned yourselves into gods, but not one of you has any of the real power. I possess all the power! I can rock you off your rocker. The world does not exist without Me. I come to you in great love. I care for you with great love. I died for you that you can enter My kingdom. My kingdom is not of this world. This is your test. This world is not an end in itself. It is a short layover for the kingdom of God which is at hand!

In one second I can snatch your life from you and all that remains are the things of God. In one instant you can die and then what control have you? You are mortal beings. Your body withers and fades. Your cars grow old in front of your eyes. Your TVs are silenced by pulling the plug. Quit looking to this world for your power. I can silence your power in a moment. You have created bombs to destroy yourself. What might is this? I give you life. You cannot create life. You cannot be God! You are as you are. Why is it not enough?

I give you My love. I give you all you need. I promise you a land of glory for loving one another. I only ask you to love Me, love one another, and then such a reward! I give you beautiful trees and birds and skies and food and beautiful children. I give you beauty and love and you make your world hard and ugly.

Oh, children, open up your eyes! Look beyond your clutter. Look and see Me. See My life in each other. See your beautiful children. You create things, you make gadgets, then you pat yourselves on the back and call yourselves gods. I make a beautiful child. I give you a flower. I make a beautiful tree. You are so full of pride!

I have all the power. One second, and you are on your road to where? Your life is ended. There is no age for the death of the body. It happens to old and young alike. Wake up and see your Savior and your God. I am Who am. I am your God. I am loving and good. You have made false idols your gods and you miss My love. You are missing the love of God. This is your test. This is your layover here. You are here to do My work. My work is the work of love. Love God. Love one another. All else is useless if it does not have reference to the love of God.

You are a sick society. Wake up. Take off your blinders. See your world through the eyes of God. You, My little ones, are powerless. I have all the power. Make Me the center of your life or you fail the test. This is your exam. Will you graduate into My kingdom?

                R. The innocent lamb — led to the slaughter —
                    With angry hearts and faces — they beat Jesus —
                    they tore His garments —
                    they hated
                    they ripped His flesh —

                Jesus did nothing wrong —
                the anger and hatred was in them
                they beat the Son of Man —
                the devil hates —

                He wants people to hate God
                                            hate others
                                            hate themselves —

                When a person continues to say yes to hate —
                    they are growing in the ways of satan —
                    not Jesus —

                Bitter hearts tear down —
                Mary was the perfect handmaid
                Mary loved
                Mary's heart was pure
                Mary said "yes" to Jesus 

                Mary suffered so

                Satan wants people to act in hate, be
                    angry, be jealous, be envious —
                    want to control

                When a person abuses another — they
                    don't want anyone standing
                    in their way of the cycle they
                    have given —
                    they can become enraged — as satan can
                    tell them — they control — they
                    deserve to be in control as
                    Fr. Mike says —

                        A person controls to
                               
                              punish   or   reward

                In the abuse cycle the person in the early
                    stages has the honeymoon cycle to
                    keep it going

                False promises — then when the person believes
                    they start the abuse again that leads
                    to a bigger climax for why they have
                    this right to punish the other —

                The anger is in them and they become more angry
                    as they freely choose to distance themselves
                    from God by their sins of hatred and
                    acting in unloving ways —

                Only God brings happiness —

                God and loving is the goal of our life —

                We are to act lovingly — to grow in these
                    virtues   Faith, hope and love to
                    live lives building God's Kingdom —

                Not tearing down — being angry etc. —

                A child may be abused by a parent and
                    when they grow older if those
                    wounds aren't healed —

                They may try to punish others as they were
                    punished —

                If they were abused — they may have learned
                    survival tactics — hidden as a child —
                    to get attention and dominance over the
                    one abusing them —
                    Sickness — accidents — setting discord
                    to throw the home into problems —
                    as the child retaliates their anger
                    by using methods to retaliate
                    against the abusing parent —
                    forcing them problems —

                When the child grows older —
                    the anger from the abuse if not healed
                    is acted out on others —
                    causing more problems as a matter of
                        course — survival tactics learned
                        in childhood under abuse —

                    The child retaliating not wanting to get
                        caught — starts problems, but
                        they are innocent they say —
                        it's a mistake —
                        it is not my fault —

                They can use health issues to get
                    their way —

                They can numb their pain with an addiction
                    holding out in their dysfunction.

                The means one uses to manipulate others —
                    rooted in dysfunction and anger
                    blocks the progress of purely
                    doing a task in love to build
                    God's Kingdom —

                We are not called to play these games —
                    Jesus calls "volley ball"
                    where an angry person provokes
                    others to tears, saying things
                    etc. and the angry person
                    wears a white garment and
                    shows no marks of their
                    provocative activity to hurt another
                    and act out their anger by intentionally
                    provoking another —

                We were put here to love —
                We are to obey authority —
                We are to observe the structure —
                We are to obey just rules —

                What satan wants is one through anger
                    breaking down rules — using some
                    dysfunctional force and thereby
                    enforcing dysfunctional rules
                    against God's commandments —

                An angry person who handles their anger by
                    projecting it at others and sulking until
                    they do an act to hurt others is
                    deeply acting in evil —

                It is the act done to Christ —
                    He did nothing — He was whipped
                                               He was put to death


                It is the act done to Joseph —
                    who did nothing —

                The actions to Jeremiah


                The actions done to Abel by Cain —

                Peter cut off the ear of the high priest's servant
                Jesus put it back on —

                A person filled up with anger has two choices —
                    — they can use another person trying
                        to force them to be the object
                        of their hatred
                        and lying to themselves about their sin

                    — they can get inside themselves —
                    — tell the truth about their life-long anger
                        beg to be healed and punch a pillow
                        and try to admit, pent up anger —
                        then flood out their anger with that which
                            leads to happiness — God's love —
                            use the Blue Book

                    (1) Love God
                    (2) Love themselves
                    (3) Love others

                Mary stood beneath the cross and her heart
                    was in such pain —
                    she saw her Son who was giving
                        His life for our sins

 

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

The Christian and Sin

                        1) The Nature of Sin

"What is the nature of sin? Contemporary theology emphasizes that sin is not primarily a violation of a law, but a disruption of personal relationships. Sin is a refusal to love. Serious sin is a radical refusal to love. Venial sin is a partial refusal to love. ... Sin, then, because it is a failure to love God, man and the world, is selfishness. ... Sin is primarily a refusal to love God, a refusal to be loved by Him, to be guided by Him."

 

 

                Response to God's love —

                People who grew up in angry houses are
                    familiar with anger —
                    this is normal —
                    punishment
                    ping-pong games—

                I provoke you —
                I am up on you —
                You hurt me — I hurt you —

                Then forcing another by
                    controlling things so the person
                    trying to do God's will has to go
                    through their anger machine to
                    get to needed things

                How many traps like that do we
                    want God to set when
                    we want eternal life in heaven

                My friends said yesterday
                    that they think we will see how we
                        hurt others some day —
                        they said like
                        you did something and it was wrong
                            and that hurt somebody else's
                            life and then somebody else's
                            life and so on and so on

                    that a good way to see how love works —
                        in spreading through others and
                    how evil works in spreading to many
                        others we do not
                    even know how our hatred effects on
                    down the line to others we do not even
                    know —

                Say God calls us to pray and
                    instead we block community prayer
                    instead we block community service
                    instead we block community materials

                We are social beings —

                We who are baptized are members of the body of Christ

                We are to be one
                We are to be loving
                We are to be serving Jesus
                We are to be kind
                We are to be meek and gentle of heart —
                We are to live our vocation in love
                        to build God's Kingdom —

                God wrote the rules —

                We are the creatures
                He is the Creator —

                We cannot oppose God's will —
                    be a rival to God's will
                    and be happy
 

 

From the Priestly Newsletter Book III - 2000 - Issue 3 p. 44
 

The Father's Will for Us  - Our Source of Peace

  • Pope John Paul II instructs us: "The Church, as a reconciled and reconciling community, cannot forget that at the source of her gift and mission of reconciliation is the initiative, full of compassionate love and mercy, of that God who is love (see 1 John 4:8) and who out of love created human beings (see Wisdom 11:23-26; Genesis 1:27: Psalms 8:4-8)…He created them so that they might live in friendship with Him and in communion with one another.

"God is faithful to His eternal plan even when man, under the impulse of the evil one (see Wisdom 2:24) and carried away by his own pride, abuses the freedom given to him in order to love and generously seek what is good, and (instead) refuses to obey his Lord and Father. God is faithful even when man, instead of responding with love to God’s love, opposes Him and treats Him like a rival, deluding himself and relying on his own power, with the resulting break of relationship with the One who created him. In spite of this transgression on man’s part, God remains faithful in love.

"It is certainly true that the story of the Garden of Eden makes us think about the tragic consequences of rejecting the Father, which becomes evident in man’s inner disorder and in the breakdown of harmony between man and woman, brother and brother (see Genesis 3:12 ff; 4:1-16). Also significant is the Gospel parable of the two brothers (the parable of the ‘prodigal son’; see Luke 15:11-32) who, in different ways, distance themselves from their father and cause a rift between them. Refusal of God’s fatherly love and of His loving gifts is always at the root of humanity’s divisions.

"But we know that God…like the father in the parable (of the prodigal son), does not close His heart to any of His children. He waits for them, looks for them, goes to meet them at the place where the refusal of communion imprisons them in isolation and division. He calls them to gather about His table in the joy of the feast of forgiveness and reconciliation.

"This initiative on God’s part is made concrete and manifest in the redemptive act of Christ, which radiates through the world by means of the ministry of the Church." 13
