                September 19, 2009

                R. Every day is a new day — We must admit
                our failures from the past and claim them
                and dump them as Fr. Mike said —

                    Staying stuck in our imperfections
                grows into more imperfections — deeper
                imperfections

                    A wheel was missing a needed spoke —
                a make-shift spoke was made and it
                stuck over — to compensate more was
                added to the wheel to cover the part
                that stuck over — It would have been
                better to order the identical needed spoke —
                so everything could work as the wheel was
                intended from the beginning —

                    If a person is addicted to drink, food etc. then
                they are not being temperate — they have ups
                and downs in that cycle — thinking about
                drinking (using), (using) or drinking, the
                effects of overindulging — it becomes the cycle
                that runs your life, the person is enslaved
                to the addiction

                    So it effects all their dealings — justice,
                prudence, temperance and fortitude act like
                a hinged door, if one is off it affects
                the others —

                    If one is jealous — jealousy rules their
                decisions — their decisions, actions are done
                because of jealousy and then this is impure and
                it is not God's will and when they act opposed
                to God's will it hurts others —

                    Look at King Henry the VIII — how many
                moved from the Catholic Church because he was
                the King of England —

                    Our actions effects others — when we are jealous,
                slothful, envious, seeking dominance for dominance
                sake — we effect every body close to us in our
                actions —

                    A lady was making a ham and she cut off
                the ends of the ham before baking — her husband
                said "why did you throw away good ham" —
                She didn't know why she did it — in investigation
                she found her mother did it and further her grandma
                started it because she only had a small
                pan and it wouldn't fit —

                    When children grow up in homes with lots of
                anger — it is like a spray can on the next generation
                until somebody looks at their anger and changes it — they
                will remain angry, and it will be passed on to
                future generations.

 

Matthew 21: 33-46

‘Listen to another parable. There was a man, a landowner, who planted a vineyard; he fenced it round, dug a winepress in it and built a tower; then he leased it to tenants and went abroad. When vintage time drew near he sent his servants to the tenants to collect his produce. But the tenants seized his servants, thrashed one, killed another and stoned a third. Next he sent some more servants, this time a larger number, and they dealt with them in the same way. Finally he sent his son to them thinking, "They will respect my son." But when the tenants saw the son, they said to each other, "This is the heir. Come on, let us kill him and take over his inheritance." So they seized him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. Now when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?’ They answered, ‘He will bring those wretches to a wretched end and lease the vineyard to other tenants who will deliver the produce to him at the proper time.’ Jesus said to them, ‘Have you never read in the scriptures:

   The stone which the builders rejected
   has become the cornerstone;
   this is the Lord’s doing
   and we marvel at it? 

‘I tell you, then, that the kingdom of God will be taken from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit.’ 

 

                    St. Paul tells Timothy to be faithful
                to the commandments —

                    The temptation is to water it
                down — make it more what people
                want, but St. Paul tells him if
                he is to shepherd the flock he must
                tell it how God said it

                    The parable of sower and seed —
                We are the soil —

                We can bear much fruit sometimes —
                Or we can be lackadaisical and give
                into the world and not bear much
                fruit —

                    We had parents who taught us —
                the teacher is the example — we
                teach by what we say and what we
                do —

                    We sow as much seed as we
                can — if we parcel it out seed
                by seed we won't have much
                growth —

                    Sow as much seed as we can —
                Be enthusiastic about the Shepherds of Christ
                Movement — Deliver the Blue Books
                as they are — Focusing on what
                people want is not going to lead
                to this conversion —

                    Lets see what people want —
                    NO  Lets show what God is
                    saying —
                    He doesn't need you to be the
                        leader and tone it down —
                        ignore His message —

                Jesus:
                The message I give from the Shepherds of Christ
                from the Virgin Mary building is
                to be delivered
                I appeared one hour on September 5th,
                are you more concerned about
                yourself than My Vision —
                My message —

                I send people to you and you focus
                on yourselves —
                Have you not ever learned from
                this prayer —
                Do you pray it  

 

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 

 

                I speak to Rita and she delivers
                    as I speak, I appear in
                    Clearwater — I deliver these
                    messages to be heard —

                If you listen you will be made
                    wise — you can help billions
                    of souls by spreading the
                    Daily Message and the Blue Books —

                Believe — Believe — Listen to Me —

                    I give you the Church —
                    I give you the commandments

                    Why do you who are the teachers, water
                it down to please the people — the rules
                are as I give them —

                    When the people rebel and do their own
                thing — they need to be corrected — if they
                leave — it is their loss —

                    The message is as I give it —

                    If you are addicted to affection for yourself
                you will focus on your vain glory — If you are
                a people pleaser then you fail to be My
                teacher — telling them how to die to their
                ways not likened to Me and to be more and
                more perfected as My heavenly Father is
                perfect —

                    Jesus said:
                        "You are the salt of the earth
                        Where with will it be salted"
                        "A city set on a hill is to shine to the world
                        Not look dull"

 

Matthew 5: 13

‘You are salt for the earth. But if salt loses its taste, what can make it salty again? It is good for nothing, and can only be thrown out to be trampled under people’s feet.

 

                Jesus: Let your light shine so people will glorify
                    your heavenly Father —

                Tell the people about My Movement, be proud
                    of this Movement and tell them about the
                Blue Books, the Mass Book — how many books
                have you spread — this is why I give these
                writings — I gave you the building in Florida
                to spread this message —

                    Because of the wounded human nature — people
                do not want anyone telling them what to do —
                A lady had this attitude — she was told exactly
                what to do when a problem was about to
                occur, a hurricane was coming —
                She cried and put a bag on her head for she
                    felt no one should ever tell her what
                    to do —

                A big hurricane came as was prophesied
                    and knocked her over — if she would have
                    listened she would have been saved from
                    the hurricane, but
                    instead she said —

                    Don't tell me nothing — or my feelings
                        will well up and I will cry

                The turtle goes under the shell —
                    say the turtle could understand and
                    was told to move — a dinosaur was coming
                    and would step on it —
                    but the turtle cried because he didn't
                        want to be told what to do and paid no heed
                        to the warning
                    sure enough the dinosaur came — stepped
                        on him and crushed him to death

                Mortal Sin is death — Mary appeared at Fatima and told
                    you to change your lives — to convert —
                    My Heart and My Mother's Heart are pure
                    and sinless

                    I have given you these messages to tell you what
                you must do to bring this era of peace and love —
                The devil works in the impurities of seeking dominance
                for dominance sake —

                    You were set over a great vineyard to bring fruit
                to the Kingdom — I gave you a scroll to follow —
                I sent My messenger to tell you the way to love —
                dictated from My Most Sacred Heart of love —
                sent to the hungry souls of this earth — where
                once you were drawn to holiness — you settled
                in your own ways, and in those ways you pushed
                ahead with your old, old routine — did that old,
                old routine bring you peace and joy and love of God
                in your old life — No you controlled and enabled others
                telling yourself you were perfect and others were
                the sinners — so you got into your old rescuing
                roles — the ones you had when your life was
                unmanageable — your children suffered — your life
                was sad — you cried and you found My letters of
                love in God's Blue Books and you knew for the first
                time peace, love and joy in your life —

                    then you had to live with others and you went
                into your enabling role — robbing you of life
                and you had to rescue the 'poor boy' and with
                that comes your piousness — you see yourself as
                perfect and not in need of any change — 

    they are the problem —
    you are the rescuer
    like the wise owl — you cry for all you
    suffered so far with this 'poor boy' and you
    were heroic in dealing with him, for you are
    perfect and he is the 'poor boy' —

 

                  now remove the 'poor boy' and you have nothing to play
                        this play with — the merry-go-round that leads
                        to unmanageability should go because —
                        you played it harder and harder —
                        doing the same dysfunction —
                        getting more high up —
                        he was the 'poor boy' —
                        you thought yourself the saint —

                I was whipped at the pillar for you were so high
                        up — you in your pride — saw yourself -
                        never sinning —

                The gentle heart that examines their conscience and
                        works on their sins —
                        now turned into the hard heart that put all their
                            failings on the whipping boy's back —
                            he already was a 'poor boy' —
                            provoke him, use him to dump your
                            anger pent up inside for years

 

                This is not love
                This is not holiness
                This is not unity
                Even the flowers, fish —
                    propagate with unity — to
                    bear fruit —

                This unmanageability rooted in lack of caring,
                    compassion, but seated in pride and giving
                    into the fallacious reasoning of the devil —

                If you say you are not a sinner — you are a liar —

                My Heart is pure and sinless
                My Mother's Heart is pure and sinless,
                You are to be likened to our pure and sinless Hearts

                The Merry-go-round called denial

                The dysfunction of being in control —

                Addicted to misery, food, lust, slothfulness,
                    greed, envy, pride, anger —

                You are the same person, with the same sins
                    from before, but like a bobbing apple —
                    where you once began tasting love and
                    purity when you read My letters of love
                    the old apple bobbed up again —

                enabler — rescue role — passive-aggressive —
                this is how you were taught as a child to relate with
                    others —

                so when you act — you act as you were taught —
                some learned men rule and
                women get down under them, but not without anger —
                    you show your displeasure of men dominance
                    by petty, bitter ways —

                from the wounded human nature there is tension
                    between men and women

    

Genesis Chapter 3

Now, the snake was the most subtle of all the wild animals that Yahweh God had made. It asked the woman, 'Did God really say you were not to eat from any of the trees in the garden?' The woman answered the snake, 'We may eat the fruit of the trees in the garden. But of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden God said, "You must not eat it, nor touch it, under pain of death." ' Then the snake said to the woman, 'No! You will not die! God knows in fact that the day you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods, knowing good from evil.' The woman saw that the tree was good to eat and pleasing to the eye, and that it was enticing for the wisdom that it could give. So she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened and they realised that they were naked. So they sewed fig-leaves together to make themselves loin-cloths.

The man and his wife heard the sound of Yahweh God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from Yahweh God among the trees of the garden. But Yahweh God called to the man. 'Where are you?' he asked. 'I heard the sound of you in the garden,' he replied. 'I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.' 'Who told you that you were naked?' he asked. 'Have you been eating from the tree I forbade you to eat?' The man replied, 'It was the woman you put with me; she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.' Then Yahweh God said to the woman, 'Why did you do that?' The woman replied, 'The snake tempted me and I ate.'

Then Yahweh God said to the snake, 'Because you have done this,

    Accursed be you
    of all animals wild and tame!
    On your belly you will go
    and on dust you will feed
    as long as you live.
    I shall put enmity
    between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and hers;
    it will bruise your head
    and you will strike its heel.'

    To the woman he said:

    I shall give you intense pain
        in childbearing,
    you will give birth to your children
        in pain.
    Your yearning will be for your husband,
    and he will dominate you.

To the man he said, 'Because you listened to the voice of your wife and ate from the tree of which I had forbidden you to eat,

    Accursed be the soil because of you!
    Painfully will you get your food from it
    as long as you live.
    It will yield you brambles and thistles,
    as you eat the produce of the land.
    By the sweat of your face
    will you earn you food,
    until you return to the ground,
    as you were taken from it.
    For dust you are
    and to dust you shall return.

The man named his wife 'Eve' because she was the mother of all those who live. Yahweh God made tunics of skins for the man and his wife and clothed them. Then Yahweh God said, 'Now that the man has become like one of us in knowing good from evil, he must not be allowed to reach out his hand and pick from the tree of life too, and eat and live for ever!' So Yahweh God expelled him from the garden of Eden, to till the soil from which he had been taken. He banished the man, and in front of the garden of Eden he posted the great

    

                But in a dysfunctional home many times there
                    is the greatest tension — He rules — she
                    is bitter — you learned this, maybe, from childhood

                rules in childhood are put in deep before a child
                    even has reason to see the fallaciousness —
                    it can be taught by generations of mates who
                    lived family life this way

                So you get married and there are all these unspoken
                    rules — that are chiseled in the mind of
                    a child

                One rule may say
                    nobody is going to tell me what to do and
                    when anybody gives a direction —
                    the little child comes out — sees mom and dad
                        scolding and now you are 50 and you
                        are going to lash back — bitter — passive-
                        aggressive ways —

                You provoke a person who has a right to
                    give the direction because of your failure
                    to look at your childish behavior at 50 —

                Oh you lost your job, but you were only acting
                    like you always did

                Oh your husband left you —
                    You were only acting like you were taught —
                    You may think —
                    Everyone lives to heal my wounds —
                    If I have a relationship with you —
                    You enter in —
                    Then my old play called
                            "unfinished business" starts

                What I do is not what I need to do —
                We are here to get rid of these old "crazy"
                    "stuck in the mud" rules
                It's not our parents didn't love us
                But we all are wounded —
                Divorces hurt lots of people

                Years ago many people stayed married and developed
                    ways to get even — or one became
                    dominant and the other endured it —
                    maybe with bitterness that was taught
                    instead of love in the family

                What a trap to be in — the trap of pride that says
                    "I'm right and I won't change"

                Jesus wore the wounds for our sins —

                His wounded body is the story of our lives — covered with
                    our sins

                When the Son was sent into the vineyard they
                    beat Him and put Him to death

                Why were not the other Apostles under the cross —

                Peter was people pleasing — he was afraid of
                    what they might think of him —
                    he lied —
                    so you lied, but you will never say you
                        are sorry or tell the truth about it —
                        you are stuck in the untruth — you
                        believe you are perfect —
                        you want people to see you shine

                Judas betrayed Jesus and wouldn't repent —
                Peter was made head of the Church —
                    He said he was sorry

                Rita:
              
 When God told me to publish Blue Book I they left
                in all the parts of my weaknesses and
                    I went before the cross of Jesus and told Him
                    He was gold on the cross
                    I saw His arms outstretched, I saw what He
                        did for our sins —
                    I knew how little it was that I would be
                        exposed and suffer and how telling the truth
                        would open me up — open my heart up —
                        open me wide and
                        while I did that and people benefitted —
                        some stuck a sword in my open heart to
                        make themselves look perfect (for men)

                Christ opened His Heart and they stuck in a
                    sword —
                In that I know opening
                Giving until I was raw — from my very soul
                and Jesus says:

                And you stand on the shore and gape at Me
                Come into the water — that you will not
                    be more focused on your 2 faces before men

                You miss the gift I give here because of your pride and
                    seeking dominance for dominance sake —
                    can't you put aside pride, jealousy, tooting
                    your own horn, envy, slothfulness and
                    thank God for these gifts given —

                The devil wants you to act in the impure ways
                    of your wounded human nature

                In Me their is pure beauty —
                You trade My gift for your selfish pride and
                    control

                Satan tempts you and you give in

                Oh what is it to butter a piece of warm
                    toast —

                You put pickle relish on the toast I give you and
                    hold your white dress before men —
                    when many of you have sins that are
                    scarlet red

                I died for your sins
                You hide nothing from Me

                I give this Movement to help bring to completion
                    the mission Mary began at Fatima

                This is God the Father's Plan for Peace
                This building was given by God the Father —
                quit watering down My message to please people —

   

Colossians 3: 1-5

Since you have been raised up to be with Christ, you must look for the things that are above, where Christ is, sitting at God’s right hand. Let your thoughts be on things above, not on the things that are on the earth, because you have died, and now the life you have is hidden with Christ in God. But when Christ is revealed-and he is your life-you, too, will be revealed with him in glory. That is why you must kill everything in you that is earthly: sexual vice, impurity, uncontrolled passion, evil desires and especially greed, which is the same thing as worshipping a false god;

     

                I tell you a baby has lots to learn — they have to learn
                    to even eat food — teach your babies about God —

                Where babies are learning to walk
                Old people are dying and shutting down —

                The flower has its day of beauty —
                    like the autumn trees and then
                    it shuts down like the night —

                But life remains even after a cold winter
                    in the trees

                Life is in Me —

                When you lie —
                When you seek dominance for dominance
                    sake — you get an "unhappy trouper"

                You are like a bull in a China shop —

                You are in My world —
                    until the body I gave you —
                    doing your own crashing of things

                You need to be converted
                    to die to the things not likened to Me —

                The more you lack
                                    Faith
                                    Hope and
                                    Love
                    the more you are empty

                This is a gift I give here
                Harken to Me

   

Mark 10: 17-30

He was setting out on a journey when a man ran up, knelt before him and put this question to him, ‘Good master, what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ Jesus said to him, ‘Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments: You shall not kill; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not give false witness; You shall not defraud; Honour your father and mother.’ And he said to him, ‘Master, I have kept all these since my earliest days.’ Jesus looked steadily at him and he was filled with love for him, and he said, ‘You need to do one thing more. Go and sell what you own and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.’ But his face fell at these words and he went away sad, for he was a man of great wealth.

Jesus looked round and said to his disciples, ‘How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God!’ The disciples were astounded by these words, but Jesus insisted, ‘My children,’ he said to them, ‘how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for someone rich to enter the kingdom of God.’ They were more astonished than ever, saying to one another, ‘In that case, who can be saved?’ Jesus gazed at them and said, ‘By human resources it is impossible, but not for God: because for God everything is possible.’

Peter took this up. ‘Look,’ he said to him, ‘we have left everything and followed you.’ Jesus said, ‘In truth I tell you, there is no one who has left house, brothers, sisters, mother, father, children or land for my sake and for the sake of the gospel who will not receive a hundred times as much, houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and land -- and persecutions too -- now in this present time and, in the world to come, eternal life.

 

1 John 3: 2

My dear friends,
    we are already God’s children,
but what we shall be in the future
    has not yet been revealed.
We are well aware that when he appears
we shall be like him,
because we shall see him as he really is.

 

Psalm 85: 3, 5

You retract all your anger,
you renounce the heat of your fury.

Bring us back, God our Savior,
appease your indignation against us!
Will you be angry with us for ever?
Will you prolong your wrath age after age?

 

John 17: 11b-19

I am no longer in the world,
but they are in the world,
and I am coming to you.
Holy Father,
keep those you have given me
   true to your name,
so that they may be one like us.
While I was with them,
I kept those you had given me
   true to your name.
I have watched over them
   and not one is lost
except one who was destined to be lost,
and this was to fulfil the scriptures.
But now I am coming to you
and I say these things in the world
to share my joy with them to the full.
I passed your word on to them,
and the world hated them,
because they belong to the world
no more than I belong to the world.
I am not asking you
    to remove them from the world,
but to protect them from the Evil One.
They do not belong to the world
any more than I belong to the world.
Consecrate them in the truth;
your word is truth.
As you sent me into the world, 
I have sent them into the world,
and for their sake I consecrate myself
so that they too
    may be consecrated in truth.

    

                WHY FIGHT GOD who
                    keeps us in existence ——> My life is in Him

      

December 27, 1995

LET US LOVE THE TWO HEARTS OF JESUS AND MARY
IN THE RECEPTION OF THE HOLY EUCHARIST.

HE GAVE HIMSELF TO US ON THE CROSS. HE GIVES HIMSELF TO US IN THE EUCHARIST.

How great was the act of love, God gave to this world, when He gave Himself and died on the cross. He gives Himself to us this day in the Holy Eucharist.

The greatest commandment is that we must love God with our whole heart, our whole soul, and our whole being. This is a commandment. If we are to enter heaven, we must follow the commandments. They are commands given by God for us to follow.

The greatest act we can do on this earth is an act of loving God. The reason for our existence is to love God. In the sacrament of His greatest love, He gives Himself to us. This is an act of love on His part. We are called to respond by giving ourselves in love to Him.

This is the purpose of the Holy Eucharist: to unite in such oneness with our Holy, Loving God. Our all consuming passion should be that of loving God. How many go to the Eucharist with the sole purpose of giving great love to God? He wants us to love Him. He wants souls to tell Him how much they truly love Him. This is the most intimate act of love when Jesus gives Himself-Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity to man. If it is such an act of love, how are we receiving Him in Communion? We should beg God, in this most intimate union with Him, to help us to love Him with greatest love.

Jesus is a Person. He wants our love. The Holy Spirit wants such intimacy with us. Our Father wants us to love Him. In the Eucharist, we unite with God. In this intimate act of uniting with our beloved God, with Divinity, we must pour out our love to God. We must pour out our heart to the most adorable Heart of Jesus. Jesus is so unjustly treated by many of His beloved souls He loves so much. Let us help make reparation to the Almighty God by loving God with our whole heart, our whole soul, and our whole being in the sacrament of His greatest love. This is the Gift of Himself.

Think of how it is to love someone and give your all for that person, to pour out your heart to him or her and then be treated with coldness and neglect. It hurts our heart so much more when we deeply love someone to be rejected by that person. Jesus loves us with the deepest love. We cannot fully comprehend this love. Let us love Him with the deepest love. Let us love Mary and her Immaculate Heart. Let us love her as the Mother of God. Let us love her as the virgin who bore the Son of God. May we, in the reception of the Eucharist pour out our love to Him, to this adorable Heart. May we pour out our love to His Holy Mother.

Mary said at Fatima that Jesus wants His Heart venerated next to the heart of His Mother. Let us love these two Hearts as we receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist. Then we are so deeply united with God. We see Their two Hearts surrounded with thorns for the injustices against Their Hearts. Let us help make reparation daily as we receive Him in the Eucharist. This is a special time to help make reparation to Their wounded Hearts.

Let us remember how He poured His love out to us on the cross and how He pours out His love to us now when He gives us Himself in the Eucharist, the Eucharist which contains His Heart of burning love. His Heart was pierced with a lance. Her heart was invisibly pierced with a sword. As the wounds in Their Hearts are deep, so too is Their love so deep.

He does not want "surface love". He wants hearts filled with deep burning love.

Twelve Steps of AA 

                Here are the steps we took, which are suggested as a program of recovery:

                    1.  We admitted we were powerless over alcohol, that our lives had
                            become unmanageable.

                    2.  Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

                    3.  Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God
                         as we understood Him.

                    4.  Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

                    5.  Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact
                        nature of our wrongs.

                    6.  Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

                    7.  Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

                    8.  Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to
                        make amends to them all.

                    9.  Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to
                        do so would injure them or others.

                  10.  Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong
                        promptly admitted it.

                  11.  Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious
                        contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge
                        of His will for us and the power to carry that out.

                  12.  Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps,
                        we tried to carry this message to alcoholics,
                         and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

                Work as a unit

                People married working in love to build family of love —

 

            UNITY

                TO

            PROPAGATE

            To bear fruit

 

  

Genesis 1: 11-13

    God said, ‘Let the earth produce vegetation: seed–bearing plants, and fruit trees on earth, bearing fruit with their seed inside, each corresponding to its own species.’ And so it was. The earth produced vegetation: the various kinds of seed–bearing plants and the fruit trees with seed inside, each corresponding to its own species. God saw that it was good. Evening came and morning came: the third day. 

   

                God took woman from
                    side of man

                The Church was born from the
                    side of Christ —

                    His Heart pierced with a lance
                        Blood and water came forth

                Christ the Head
                The Church His Body

  

 

 

 

                Through the pierced Heart of
                    Christ the Church was
                    Born

 

Act of consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

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

 

                UNITY God is with us

Matthew 22: 36-40

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

     

                TRINITY —

                    most perfect community
                 3 Person in one God —

                St. Paul —

Galatians 2: 19-20

...I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me.

 

 

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Cling to Me

May 13, 1993 

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.

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)
