September 2, 2006

Messenger:       I show you my soul and I open my heart.

                        I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.

                        Is it safe to open my heart and show you
                            what is within?

                        Can I not follow this calling from God to help
                            lead the world into greater oneness in
                            the Hearts of Jesus and Mary?

                        Is it safe to open my heart and show you
                            the love letters Jesus wrote to me?

                        If my salvation depended on whether you
                            liked me or not I guess I would have
                            to worry about what you think,
                            but what I have to worry about
                            is how I am loving and serving
                            God as He so desires, doing the
                            work in the vocation He has
                            called me to.

                        On October 5, 1992 I asked Jesus if He would write
                            a message to the world would He use my
                            hand and I have been writing ever since.

                        Oneness — ponder the oneness of the Trinity —
                            I know it in my soul —
                            I know oneness —
                            I know the Father,
                            I know the Son
                            I know the Holy Spirit and
                            I know the oneness of God —

                        My soul is lighted to reach into the pockets,
                            the layers of knowing more and more into
                            the ineffable mystery as He reveals
                            Himself to me, in ecstasies, raptures —
                            I have touched the ineffable mystery
                            of God's embrace — mystery beyond mystery —
                            the oneness of God and yet I know the
                            Father deeply, the Son my beloved — the
                            light and love of the Holy Spirit fills my soul.

                            Yes oneness in the Hearts of Jesus and
                        Mary. What does it mean to be wrapped in
                        love — to know oneness — to share your heart —
                        Jesus told Fr. Carter to those who pray these
                        prayers —

Messenger:           He would take them deeper and deeper into
                        His Heart and in His Mother's Heart.

                            What happened in the garden — was
                        sin — a disconnection with God —

                            What is God — He is love —
                        Jesus died for me, for my
                        sins, Jesus rose on the 3rd day —
                        In baptism I receive a special sharing
                        in His life that elevates my loving capacity
                        to love God and others. That is my life long
                        process, cooperating with His grace to do so.
                        Jesus, Jesus, Jesus — You reveal to me the
                        ineffable mystery of the love of Your
                        Sacred Heart — I reach in the center — like
                        the vision I saw in 1991
                        (vision of His Sacred Heart on fire)
                        and I see the white
                        heat of His love — the burning embers of
                        reality — God is love — the ultimate mystery —
                        the Mystery of God's love.

                            So why are we afraid to love —
                            God is — God has given us the sacrament
                            of baptism —
                            God has revealed Himself to me — I
                                know He loves me — God has
                                given me the Holy Eucharist —
                                the great gift of Himself

                            Why am I afraid to love —

                        Listen to this — I give my heart to Jesus and Mary
                            with you in love.

                        I want to be one —
                        That is what I say —

                        I don't say I am wounded, I put my heart
                            in a locked box to protect me — I open
                            my heart like Christ did on the cross —
                            He spread His arms

                        He died bare on the cross —
                        He was born bare in the stable
                            I live IN Him in truth —
                            But I don't throw my heart to the swine —
                            I open my heart and in it is found
                                the fire of God's love — for I live
                                in Him and that fire and that
                                light shines from the graced
                                soul, baptized and radiant —

                        I saw Him transfigured and I heard
                            "This is My beloved Son in whom
                                I am well pleased."

                        In pondering the mystery of the Church —
                            Christ's bride — it says in scripture
                            "He loves His Church"

                        For me, I am learning about love my life
                            I am, at 60, still learning about love —
                            more than I ever did before -
                            My source is Christ —
                            I share in God's life in baptism —
                            My knowing and loving capacity is
                                elevated —

                           God gives me insight into the mystery —
                            I reach for what is above the
                                mountain top — not the dirt
                                and sand —

                        Even though there is suffering, the light
                            of His countenance shines in my
                            soul - always - light flickering to
                            know the Divine God — to hope for
                            my life with God for all eternity —
                            Reach, Reach and do not fear ever
                            to open your heart to the
                            mystery of God's love — the
                            burning Heart for which we
                            all seek and have our sights
                            set on.

                        The devil wants division —
                        The devil wants us torn apart —

                        Look at the Trinity — the Oneness — 3 Persons  


Excerpt from Response to God's Love

The Mystery of Christ and Christian Existence

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

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

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ. St. Paul tells us: "I became a minister of this Church through the commission God gave me to preach among you his word in its fullness, that mystery hidden from ages and generations past but now revealed to his holy ones. God has willed to make known to them the glory beyond price which this mystery brings to the Gentiles—the mystery of Christ in you, your hope of glory. This is the Christ we proclaim while we admonish all men and teach them in the full measure of wisdom, hoping to make every man complete in Christ" (Col 1:25-28).

Messenger:       The most perfect community — The Trinity
                            1 God —

                            Perfect love —

                            The Holy Eucharist can take us into
                                deep oneness —

                            The Mass is a fountain of His Life.

                        It is the gift of being saturated with

A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

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

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

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

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

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

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

-God's Blue Book, December 27, 1995


September 2, 2006 message continues

Messenger:       Jesus gave me this prayer in 2 minutes —
                        but the writing that I got the same
                            day was this.


December 27, 1995



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.

Excerpt from Response in Christ

Relationship with Members of the Church

e) Relationship with Members of the Church

There is but one true Church of Christ. Yet this one Church has three different states of existence. There is the pilgrim Church, the Church of this world, composed of members who have received the grace of Christ and strive for its development. They have not yet obtained the goal of their efforts, as have the members of the heavenly Church, who enjoy God in eternal happiness. The Church suffering is an intermediate state of existence necessary for those who had not achieved the required purification as members of the pilgrim Church. Although there are these three phases of the Church’s existence, there is a profound union existing between all the members. All these members possess the same basic life of grace in Christ, and this common life establishes the most intimate bonds of love. In our preceding chapter, we discussed the pilgrim Church. Let us now consider the Church suffering and the heavenly Church.

The members of the Church suffering are those who have departed from this life in an incomplete state of Christian development. Their development is incomplete in the sense that grace has not fully taken possession of them, and, as a result, they are yet closed in upon themselves to a greater or lesser degree. They as yet cannot open themselves out in complete love to the Triune God in the beatific vision. They must undergo a further purification, a purification which could have been achieved upon earth with merit. Now the purification must be achieved with no merit attached. The pain of this purification is mixed with the certain expectation of achieving the vision of God. We can hasten the advent of this vision for this people by the offering of prayers and other good works. Scripture itself refers to our action on behalf of those in purgatory in Chapter 12 of the Second Book of Maccabees beginning with verse 38.

The members of the heavenly Church are those in whom the life of grace has taken full possession and has reached its completion in the life of glory. Faith now is unnecessary, as the light of glory gives the human intellect a new strength and capacity for seeing God face-to-face. While the Christian was a wayfarer, he received the imprint of the indwelling Trinity as he shared in God’s own life. Now in heaven that grace-life and possession of God reaches its completion—the absolute completion is not achieved, however, until the resurrection of the body. The divine persons give Themselves to the beatified in a profound union far surpassing that of the indwelling of the Trinity experienced here below.

This life of heaven is still the Christ-life, for just as we possess a share in Trinitarian life here below as mediated by Christ, and exercise this grace-life as structured by Him, so also in heaven is the mediation of Christ present. In the words of Rahner, "One always sees the Father through Jesus. Just as immediately as this, for the directness of the vision of God is not a denial of the mediatorship of Christ as man."14 And not only does the humanity of Christ unite the blessed to God, but also, in some way, to the whole of creation. This is merely a completion of what is begun here below, namely, the union with Christ in His humanity establishing the Christian in a special relationship with God, with other men, and with the whole of creation. We have a glimpse, therefore, of the fullness of life which members of the heavenly Church possess.

The heavenly Church, as St. Thomas says, is the true Church.15 The Church of this earth and the Church of purgatory are, each in its own way, reaching out in loving hope for the heavenly Jerusalem. Vatican II puts it very simply: "The Church, to which we are called in Christ Jesus, and in which we acquire sanctity through the grace of God, will attain her full perfection only in the glory of heaven."16

The members of the heavenly Church can help us in living our life of grace until we too share its fullness with them. Their power of intercession on our behalf is but another ramification of the communal aspect of Christianity. We are meant to help others grow in Christ. We, in turn, are intended by God to receive aid from others—yes, from members of the heavenly Church, as well as from those with whom we dwell here below.

Not only can we be aided by the saints’ intercession, but the example of the canonized saints can also be of great value to us. They have concretely proved that full holiness is possible. Such an inspiration is of real worth when we are tempted to think that Christian sanctity in its higher degrees is impossible of attainment. Moreover, the canonized saints, in their diversity, teach us that there are many authentic versions of Christian holiness. They can be innovators in showing us that there are numerous possibilities in assimilating the mystery of Christ, although the basic assimilation remains the same for all Christians of all times. In the opinion of Rahner this is one of the chief roles the canonized saints exert in the life of the Church.17

Messenger:           I live in this WIDE VISION —

Excerpt from January 20, 2001 message

Messenger:  ... I saw the priest and the people at Mass that January 20, 1996, and I knew the connection with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and all the angels and saints. I knew more from the light given the depths of oneness He desires, and I could hardly stand the anguishing pain of the reality of what He wanted and how it could be and the blindness of us as we participate as "stiff-necks" many times in the Mass.

I cried so hard and my insides hurt like swords beyond belief knowing the reality of oneness and how He desires men to be united and participate in the Mass.

On the following morning January 21, 1996, Sunday, I cried from the depth of anguish within my heart as if I was in the most desolate garden. A garden we have here and yet it seems to be so many times treated like a parched desert.

Oh the fountain of His life that flows through His magnificent Church. The priest is the key, the instrument He uses to administer the Sacraments. The priests are His chosen, the anointed ones He calls and He loves them so much and He wants them to love Him as the most faithful spouse married to God.

Oh if the glasses clouded with such a haze were removed and we would see as I saw those two days.

Oh the love He desires of these chosen men and He cries for us to reach them.

I beg of you to help me reach them as He implored of me those two days, January 20 and 21, 1996.

I suffered so bad every year after that January 20 and 21. I would cry to Father Carter how I anguished for the lack of oneness in the world.

It was anguishing pain to know the depth of His love and oneness and to suffer so for lack of it.

And what is hell, but lack of oneness?
What is hell, but isolation.
What is hell? It is hell!

We were created to be one.

Here is an excerpt from the prayer of Jesus before He was led off to His bitter Passion. (Read all of John 17)

I quote here a portion – John 17: 20-26.

John 17: 20-26

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

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

Messenger: Go to the Heart of Jesus and ask for grace to experience some of the emotion He felt as he spoke this prayer before He was led off to His bitter Passion. Go to the depth of His Heart and ask to understand more fully the Passion of the divine Savior. Ask for the grace for men to understand oneness and love and the wonders of the Mass.

The Mass unites us. The Mass is a gift given. From the Church flows the graces our hungry souls crave. The priest is the key to help us to receive graces flowing to us through the Church in the Mass and through the Sacraments.

Ezekiel 34: 11-16

    “For the Lord Yahweh says this: Look, I myself shall take care of my flock and look after it. As a shepherd looks after his flock when he is with his scattered sheep, so shall I look after my sheep. I shall rescue them from wherever they have been scattered on the day of clouds and darkness. I shall bring them back from the peoples where they are; I shall gather them back from the countries and bring them back to their own land. I shall pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the inhabited parts of the country. I shall feed them in good pasturage; the highest mountains of Israel will be their grazing ground. There they will rest in good grazing grounds; they will browse in rich pastures on the mountains of Israel. I myself shall pasture my sheep, I myself shall give them rest–declares the Lord Yahweh. I shall look for the lost one, bring back the stray, bandage the injured and make the sick strong. I shall watch over the fat and healthy. I shall be a true shepherd to them."


John 10: 11-15

I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd lays down his life
   for his sheep.
The hired man,
   since he is not the shepherd
and the sheep do not belong to him,
abandons the sheep
as soon as he sees a wolf coming,
   and runs away,
and then the wolf attacks
   and scatters the sheep;
he runs away
   because he is only a hired man
and has no concern for the sheep.
I am the good shepherd;
I know my own
and my own know me,
just as the Father knows me
and I know the Father;
and I lay down my life for my sheep.


Isaiah 62: 1-5

About Zion I will not be silent,
about Jerusalem I shall not rest
until saving justice dawns for her
   like a bright light
and her salvation like a blazing torch.
The nations will then see
   your saving justice,
and all kings your glory,
and you will be called a new name
which Yahweh's mouth will reveal.
You will be a crown of splendour
   in Yahweh's hand,
a princely diadem in the hand of your God.
No more will you be known as 'Forsaken'
or your country be known as 'Desolation';
instead, you will be called
   'My Delight is in her'
and your country 'The Wedded';
for Yahweh will take delight in you
and your country will have its wedding.
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.




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

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