Sidney Rosary


R. May God bless us in His mercy. May we know His love for us. May we be ever more intimate with our Divine Almighty God.

And Jesus says: Open your hearts that you are not closed to the gifts that I want to give to you this day. Open your hearts.

Sing: Holy, Holy, Holy Is His Name

R. Open yourself! Let Him in!

Sing: Holy, Holy, Holy Is His Name

R. Dear God help us not to be a prisoner, but one that is ready to fly, to be ever open, to know Your love and to let You fill us with all Your gifts. For how is it that man who has received such gifts from God can close himself down, for God has called us to love, but in loving it is the giving of oneself for the good of the other, and if given love from others to us, why would we then hurt the other, but because of woundedness, give in.

Jesus: For it would be far better for you, than instead of giving into such pride that you realize that God is telling you how to achieve happiness in Him, but you hold onto your weaknesses as trophies, when indeed they lead you to the greatest misery, which in the end must be worked out before you enter into My heavenly Kingdom.

R. ...


The Agony in the Garden

Mary: And I stood beneath the cross of my Son and my heart was in such anguish, for I saw before my eyes - I saw Jesus die for your sins. Today, my children are dropping into hell like rain, and it is so very clear that one that lives the life of virtue, and practices the virtues, live in habits of goodness, loving, hoping, having faith, being humble, not prideful, not angry. And to those who give into the deadly sins - anger, envy, jealousy, seeking dominance for dominance sake and the others, hurt themselves more than they ever hurt another person. If you would listen to the messages that I have given to you and the messages of my Son, you would see clearly, but in your pride, satan tricks you, as he did Eve. You who have been so gifted and test the hand of my Son. Let go child, to grow in your purity and love of God. And Holy is His Name.

Sing: Holy Is His Name

Mary: For what good does it do a man to win the whole world and to lose his soul. For when you hate and are angry and provoke, and waste days in punishment of others, you should know that God is watching. For hell is eternal punishment due to sin that is mortal. And satan aims at the jugular vein my child. There is no love in satan who says "I will not serve. I will not serve my God". And he goes about the world, deceiving, as he did to Eve, who was so gifted.

Jesus speaks and He says: And I give to you a free will. For when you choose sin and hatred, envy, jealousies over love, you offend your God, who is so good. Heaven, My children is a reward promised to those who love and serve Me. Amen.


The Scourging at the Pillar

Jesus: Remember the memories that you had with Me, when you knew My love. Do not give in to the hurt memories that are from long ago that satan conjures up in your minds, that you remember and pin on innocent others. Remember. Remember when! Remember when you went to the Eucharist and you were so filled with love for Me? Remember when you read your first Blue Book message and you couldn't wait to read more? Remember when you heard about the Mass more and more, and you were so filled with so much love. Remember what it was to know that you were called to your vocation and you were so happy? Remember all the gifts that I have given to you every day of your life, that I have given Myself to you here, that I am truly present and exposed before you? Remember when? Remember these! Remember when.

R. . . .

R. Pride is the root of all evil.

Jesus: And I opened My Heart to you My beloved ones. They pierced My Heart with a lance and what came forth was blood and water. I give you Myself everyday in the Eucharist. Oh precious love, I long to come to you. Come to Me with a heart that is eager and ready to share such love.

R. Oh Jesus, thank You for the gift of the Eucharist. Thank You my God.


Jesus is Crowned with Thorns

Jesus: And I love you so much. My child, I am your King. Display My image and spread these images to the world and I will bless the people in a special way that pray to Me and display My images, and I will come to them and fill their Heart with much love. Oh little precious one, it is you who sell yourself so short, when My Heart is on fire, and I want to envelop you in that fire and give you such love. It is the words of someone else that you hear that tells you the negative things when I am so present, and you are so filled with such emptiness.

1. Jesus: And now I show you an empty bottle. How much is in it?

2. Jesus: Once upon a time a man wanted to open a bottle of wine, and he got out his old archaic wine opener and he tried and tried, but he could not take the cork out of the bottle. Oh My dear, how I have prodded you and come close to you and tapped you on the shoulder, and you said, "I'll take You Jesus, on my terms. It's my plan and I like to be by myself." The next day I came to you again and I said to you, "My child, you were put on this earth to work with others, to love with others, to be with others, and as you love them you love Me", and you said, "No way Jesus, my cork is in my bottle and there it will stay." And I came again and again and again and again and again and again. Yes, you wanted it your way. Child, that is the way of the devil. My commandment to you is to love God with your whole heart, your whole soul and our whole being and to love your neighbor as yourself. Isn't it time that you obey the commandment that I have given? Your cork is as tight as it can be and inside your bottle — it's not filled with love.

3. Jesus: And I sat on a mock throne and they crowned My head with a crown of thorns, pounding them deep into My head and piercing My forehead. Blood ran into My eyes and into My mouth — and I could see you this day in your pride - stubborn and closed. God is the Creator and you are the creature. I am love and I teach you the ways of love. I command that you love as I have, for it is the way to love. For love just keeps on flowing over and over, like an overflowing brook, like a fountain that never stops, and you have locked yourself in a cage and told yourself about love. Being locked in a cage — caging your heart, keeping it like stone, reaching only out past your own chest, is a dead trap, for you.

4. Jesus: I am love.

5. Jesus: There was a man who was a chef and he spent his life cooking, and others would come and they would enjoy all that he made. Every day the same menu. After awhile it became very old. And a man came and said, "you are certainly a wonderful chef, but I keep coming back and I just get the same dishes." And the man said "I did it my way."

6. Jesus: Now let me tell you a riddle. For I have given to you the sweetness of the earth, all the different varieties of all the little fishes and plants, the beauty of all the trees and the flowers, the grass that grows and yet is so different, the waters and the rocks, the terrain about the whole earth, the farmer that grows corn here, and cotton there, the grapes for wine, the apples to keep the doctor away. I have given to you the fruits of this earth, the beauty under the sea, the skies of greatest brilliance, and every person uniquely created by the hand of God with such talents and love. Don't be like the man, My child, that did it his way, the one who hid his talent, instead of making more and more and more to build the Kingdom. Foolish indeed, is the man with such a closed-down mind, when the Almighty God is omnipotent. Oh child, come out from the rock and look at the blood on My forehead.

7. Song: The King of Glory

8. Song: Jesus Christ Our Sovereign King

9. Song: City of God

10. Song: My God Reigns


Jesus Carries His Cross

Jesus: I carried My Cross for you on My back, the weight of your sins.

Song: A Song from Jesus

Jesus: Come to Me now and feel the peace that I want to give you. Open your heart wide and focus only on My love.

1. R. And she slept in a briar patch and she was pierced with many thorns. Could it be, she thought, that I was lost here, that I would think more of my King and Savior, who was pierced so deeply for my sins? Is it that as the night comes to me, that in the suffering, I see the light, brighter than ever before. Oh my God, help me. Help me to be true in my heart to You, my beloved.

2. Jesus: And say, you say to Me, My child, that you want to be true. And I want you to be true, because in that truth, there will be ever greater oneness in love between us, and love given to all you come in contact with. But let me tell you about truth, and what it is. For to have truth in your heart, you do not deceive yourself, nor act in pride and tell yourself that, when you have wronged others, that you were right in doing so. For it is the devil that tells you what is wrong is right, and what is right is wrong. So if you do something that is very good, then the devil wants to come and say blab, blab, blab. Or if there is a day of great joy and praising, come through with your poisonous rag and turn it into great dirty dust. My child, for it is in loving, that you are to love more, not as a roller coaster — if someone loves you, to take them down, a road of hate. Oh precious one, it is in giving that you receive, and it is in receiving in love, that you are rendered to, more and more. For if you want to receive love, give love. For it is what you were called to by your heavenly Father. It is not a rarity but it is that which I have commanded you. My miserable little one, you will never be happy unless you do the will of God.

3. Jesus: And let Me tell you of truth, for truth is not jealousy. For when you are jealous, you have given into impurities.

4. Jesus: And when you act in envy to hurt another because of their success, you have acted in an evil way. This is not the way to My Heart.

5. Jesus: And if you want truth in your heart so you are one with Me in My Heart, you cannot lie, for satan is the father of lies. And I am the way, the truth and the life, that is what will lead to your happiness, truth in your heart.

6. Jesus: The gift I give to you is being docile, and working in humility with others where you learn, you learn to love.

7. Jesus: The man who lives his life to prove he is right has really lived his life in vain, for he is not right. You are not perfect. It is the man who says that he does not sin. He is a liar.

8. Jesus: Lies and deception bring great unhappiness and misery, and it drives you far from Me - for I am the way, the truth and the life.

9. Jesus: Now look at the wine skin with the patch — will it not be weak, where is was repaired? Weaving in and out, giving into the deadly sins, leads to loss of life, over and over again. And the rug that you weave is one that is a carpet of misery. And one that prays to have a heart likened to Mine, to be like the New Adam and the New Eve, to be filled with greater faith, to be a witness, to love your vocation, to walk humbly, to be temperant, to be just, leads to purity of heart and clean, clear happiness.

10. Jesus: And so I have called you in the Shepherds of Christ to tell the world about Our pure and sinless Hearts, and tell them to come and to dwell there, for it is there that they will know the great treasure of My love.

Jesus: It was Halloween and the children went out and they went to the doors, and a woman home alone was waiting for the trick or treaters. To her door came a man, a villain, one that wished her great harm, and as she tried to close the door, he forced his entry into the home with her. And he hurt her very badly. Now I want you to see satan as this intruder, that comes to your door, and through deception and allurement, you open the door, and he forces his way as you give in, through more and more allurement, he comes in to hurt you, to turn your lights out.

    How many times have you closed the door, when I came with My love, for it was not exciting enough for you to have the peace of the Heart of Jesus. You wanted the combat and the misery, the hurting of the other, the way that you found out there was always a little excitement going on, when you were bored. You were bored because you never came to My Heart, and really felt that peace and warmth that I want you to know. It's up to you. Trick or treat, who will you open your door to? And will you let him in to hurt you, so that you will be more and more miserable and closed down to love.


The Crucifixion

R. ...

1. Mary: Open your heart to the love of my Son Jesus.

Sing: I rocked him as a baby, I held him as a child

Mary: And today as your heavenly Mother, I want you to know my love for you. It is satan that wants you to feel all alone and that you are unloved. Be all that you can be as the Father created you, that you will serve and love Him, for it will bring you great happiness. Oh my child, I do appear to you, that you will know how close I really am. But you will not believe, when I give to you such gifts, gifts from my Immaculate Heart, gifts of Motherly love, for your soul. I am Mary, your Mother. Your Mother, the perfect Mother of love. Little lost child, you have suffered many wounds, and in those wounds you have crawled, as if you loved the box and closed your lid. Do you not know that men are imperfect? And when you reach for the perfection in them, you are let down, for you are reaching for that which is not true. Pray to God to enlighten you, that you will walk humbly and in the truth, soaking in all the love, that you crave, and will make you happy, not being a hard box — that makes no one happy.

2. R. She is the Mother of beauty and love.

3. Jesus: You know I am with you for I told you I would be. It is just that you hold on to that which leaves you empty.

4. Mary: And a man walked into the desert, and as he walked more and more into the desert, he was so thirsty and yet he could not find anything to quench his thirst. And he felt as if he would pass out. But before him was a great fountain and a lake filled with pure water — the richest water, cool and refreshing. And yet his eyes were covered over from the desert, for he had walked so long and hard in the desert, and the desert sand had washed in front of his eyes, and he did not see the water, that would refresh him, because he had been blinded.

5. Sing: One little light in the darkness, then there were two and were three, three little lights in the darkness. Oh what God did to me. Four little lights in the darkness, then there were five and were six.

Mary: Oh my children, you can't go it alone, where you are alone. God has told you to work with each other, to love, to give, to be as the Father wants you to be. The more you decide that you are writing the book, the more satan will give you a few good ideas. There is but one law for the creatures of God. It is the law of the Creator.

6. Mary: When some have tried so hard, and made what is against nature, their law. Why rebel against the will of God, little creatures, you are — rebelling against God.

7. Mary: And you get into the car that God is driving and you say to Him, move over God, I'm the driver.

8. Mary: And soon your tires are flat and you run into an abutment.

9. Jesus: Come abroad the hot air balloon, and I will take you across the blue skies.

10. Mary: There you will see with a magnificent view, where once you were clogged as a vessel, one that saw little, sand covered eyes. Now your eyes are bright and opened and you see beyond the wide horizon. Oh such sights! But you must open, open your eyes, open your hearts. Let God be the one running your balloon.

How could you doubt My love, Jesus says when I died for you and rose, that you would have this sharing in My life.

R. Oh my Jesus, thank You, for Your gifts to us. Thank You for the Eucharist. Thank You for baptism and confession, and confirmation and Holy Orders and Marriage and Extra Unction. Thank You God for Confirmation. Thank You God for the priests, the Church and the world, for whom we pray for and ask for grace and all the help that we need, to make this Movement last and be a strong help to the Church, beyond our life here and now. So we can look from heaven and say, "Look at all those people praying! Wow! In all those different languages! Wow! Praying for the priests, the Church and the world! Wow! Being in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary in such oneness! Wow! Going to daily communion and doing adoration! Wow!! Being Servants and Handmaids because I did what God asked me long ago and He gave me the help! Wow!!! And then we can pray with all of our heart, here today for this vision. Amen.

R. Thank you Fr. Carter for your sacrifice for us.

Sing: Come with Me into the Fields

Sing: Immaculate Mary

R. She likes that, she smiled.

                The priest at Mass said —


Ecclesiastes 1: 2-11

    Sheer futility, Qoheleth says. Sheer futility: everything is futile! What profit can we show for all our toil, toiling under the sun?A generation goes, a generation comes, yet the earth stands firm for ever. The sun rises, the sun sets; then to its place it speeds and there it rises. Southward goes the wind, then turns to the north; it turns and turns again; then back to its circling goes the wind. Into the sea go all the rivers, and yet the sea is never filled, and still to their goal the rivers go. All things are wearisome. No one can say that eyes have not had enough of seeing, ears their fill of hearing.

    What was, will be again,
    what has been done, will be done again,
    and there is nothing new under the sun!

    Take anything which people acclaim as being new: it existed in the centuries preceding us. No memory remains of the past, and so it will be for the centuries to come—they will not be remembered by their successors.


                1st reading we hear quite often
                    at funerals —
                    This life is passing —
                    But God has given us good things in
                        this life —
                    God has given us our life —
                    A time to dance
                    A time not to dance

                Everything in this life prepares us
                    for eternal life

                All of it put together leads us to
                    eternal life — if we love and
                    serve the Lord —

                Who is this Jesus?

                Herod doesn't want to believe
                    that Jesus came back to life —

                Even the wind and sea obey Jesus —

                Who is this Jesus? —

                Move on beyond the point —

                Jesus is one of us — He came a man —
                    our brother — our Savior -

                Jesus is my friend —
                Jesus taught me how to live —
                Jesus is the friend I talk to
                    every day —

Blue Book V

Blue Book VI


                Jesus has welcomed me to an intimate
                    relationship with Him —

                Who is Jesus?

                Jesus is my friend.

                I am trying to find out as much
                    about Jesus as I can —

                Jesus help me that my burdens are
                    lightened by God's grace —

                Jesus is my God
                Jesus is my All —

                God has the Plan —
                I wait on Him —
                I love Him
                I give myself to God

                God of mercy and love — hear my prayers
                    as I long to serve You and
                    do Your will in our lives —

                Jesus: I am Your God —
                    I give the directions —
                    You can justify yourself
                    Then you don't hear Me or do
                        what I ask because of
                        your pride —

                Look at your life
                    I give
                    I take away —

                You want to be 'right' when you are
                    'wrong' —

                "Nobody will correct you" — you say — "I won't
                    listen" you say — "I am always right" you say

                You only want to be 'right'.
                You don't care what I want —
                The focus is whether you are 'right' —

                You should want to serve Me like —
                I tell you My desires —
                    humbly you listen —
                    humbly you serve Me —

                I gave this message to Fr. Carter


July 31, 1994

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."

- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)


                This message given to translate the prayers
                    in all languages —
                    So a network of prayer chapters exist
                        all over the world —

                To strengthen the priests and the Church and
                    the world  —
                    through this devotion to the Sacred Heart and
                    Immaculate Heart long after you are gone —

                Why do it your way — when it is not My way —

                Do you work to please yourself or to serve Me
                    in love and humility like Mary

                Or controlling the way I ask you to do it —

                I am God —

                The Father has a Plan —

                He has asked you to help Him implement it —

                You say I do it my way —

                Then you give the job to somebody else —

                Be followers of God —

                You can control for your psychological needs —

                A man controlled
                and two others enabled —

                It was a triangle — a closed system
                    of codependence —

                You want others under you — I am telling you what to do —
                    you want co-dependence on you —

                I am the one giving the Plan of My Father —
                    to circulate these writings to the priests —
                    centered in consecration to My Heart
                    and the Heart of My Mother —

                I am telling you how to do it —

                I am asking for your help to follow the Father's


Luke 16: 1-13

He also said to his disciples, 'There was a rich man and he had a steward who was denounced to him for being wasteful with his property. He called for the man and said, "What is this I hear about you? Draw me up an account of your stewardship because you are not to be my steward any longer." Then the steward said to himself, "Now that my master is taking the stewardship from me, what am I to do? Dig? I am not strong enough. Go begging? I should be too ashamed. Ah, I know what I will do to make sure that when I am dismissed from office there will be some to welcome me into their homes."

    'Then he called his master's debtors one by one. To the first he said, "How much do you owe my master?" "One hundred measures of oil," he said. The steward said, "Here, take your bond; sit down and quickly write fifty." To another he said, "And you, sir, how much do you owe?" "One hundred measures of wheat," he said. The steward said, "Here, take your bond and write eighty."

    'The master praised the dishonest steward for his astuteness. For the children of this world are more astute in dealing with their own kind than are the children of light.'

‘And so I tell you this: use money, tainted as it is, to win you friends, and thus make sure that when it fails you, they will welcome you into eternal dwellings. Anyone who is trustworthy in little things is trustworthy in great; anyone who is dishonest in little things is dishonest in great. If then you are not trustworthy with money, that tainted thing, who will trust you with genuine riches? And if you are not trustworthy with what is not yours, who will give you what is your very own? 

    ‘No servant can be the slave of two masters: he will either hate the first and love the second, or be attached to the first and despise the second. You cannot be the slave both of God and of money.’


                A man who is humble
                Serves humbly
                Wants to please God first —

                A person wanting vain glory for themselves
                    focuses on themselves —
                    their performance — their recognition —
                    their control — their pride —

                Why do you do what I ask

    to serve Me?               to serve yourself?

                You want a sure thing —
                I call you to faith —

                Faith strengthens you and keeps your dependency
                    on Me

                You want to build a Kingdom in which you
                    have no suffering —

                Look at Me hanging on the cross —

                I was whipped for your pride when you
                    fought Me to be right —

                I call you to obedience —
                I call you to faith —
                I call you to follow Me —

                You are to give and to give for My work —
                    My Plan —

                Jeremiah delivered the message and
                    when they disobeyed they all suffered —
                    there was the Babylonian exile —

                I called for these prayer chapters
                    16 years ago
                    around the world — a network of prayer —
                    operating long after you are gone —
                    praying for the priests, the Church and the
                        world —

                I gave a message long ago about prayer
                    chapters in Southern Florida —                                   
                    over 12 years ago —

                A man living in Southern Florida became
                    angry and quit helping with the
                    prayer manuals —

                Today there are hardly no prayer chapters in
                    Southern Florida —
                    After 2001
                    After the hurricanes
                    After the oil spill
                    After so many who lost their homes
                        in the hurricanes —

                That man quit working —
                Instead of listening to the message and
                    helping to do it more — he closed up
                    shop in anger —

                He thought Mary's apparition

                All that I said was pivoting on him and
                    when I gave the message —
                    the same as I had said for 4 years —
                    he was angry for the message —

            The Shepherds of Christ Movement has two
                major purposes
                (1) The Priestly Writing centered in
                    consecration to My Heart and Mary's
                    Heart to all the hierarchy and priests

                (2) beginning and maintaining prayer chapters —
                    giving devotion to My Heart and Mary's Heart
                    and being a network of prayer —
                    helping to bring down grace to strengthen
                    the priests, the Church and the world —

                These prayer chapters are vital —

                Like the message of prayer chapters needed
                    in Southern Florida —
                    after this message 1998
                    came men from southern Florida
                        working against My Plan
                    The hurricanes of 2004
                    The oil crisis —
                    The image head destroyed —

                But the devil focuses on 'you' to feel
                    defensive and to think it all
                    depends on you —

                You have not the sight of God —
                    to know what is happening

                You have not the sight of God
                    to know the prayer needed for the sex crisis —

                You have not the sight to understand
                    the Fatima message and the importance
                    of spreading the consecration to
                    the hierarchy so they consecrate
                    their dioceses to the Sacred Heart and
                    Immaculate Heart and spread the
                    consecration to families, consecrating
                    homes and schools and families,
                    churches —

                I give a message — I see all
                    I know what is needed —

                The devil presses in on an individual
                    to be "caved in"
                    focus on themselves
                    not see how important My message is
                    to souls —

                I want the Priestly Mailing —

                I want you to do as I asked 16 years ago to
                    Fr. Carter
                    spreading it to all priests in the United States
                    I want you to reach all bishops of the
                        world —

                Obedience is paramount —

                Spreading the prayer chapters all over the
                    world is paramount —

                The focus is the Eucharist and the intimate
                    love union with Me, your beloved
                    Jesus —

                In spreading the prayer chapters
                In spreading the Blue Books
                In asking people to be Apostles of the Eucharistic
                    Heart of Jesus

                I ask —

                You can focus on yourselves

                Instead of seeing the Church now
                                        the world now
                                the Church in the future
                                the work in the future
                                long after you are gone —

                Padre Pio is in heaven — still
                    united to you — you have such
                    limited vision — bolted to the earth —

I Want Both Feet Off The Ground 

January 18, 1994 4:40 a.m.

R. Dear Jesus, I am ready for Your work. I love You. I am sorry I didn't get to Mass because of the snow. I love You, Jesus.

Jesus: You mustn't feel that I am displeased because you stayed home. You need to be with Me at home just as you are in church. Focus on Me and My love for you and keep making Spiritual Communions. I am Jesus. I am present. I talk, you write. I am He Whose bootstraps you are unworthy to tie. I am He Who loves you intently. If you only knew a little of My love, you would be preaching about Me from a high mountain.

You are he that wants one foot on the earth and one foot in the air. One foot will let go, but the other is not willing. I want both of your feet off the floor. That extra security you hold on to, just in case--that is what makes you worldly. I demand you let go entirely. You will then be free in My love. You will soar! As long as you think you are doing any of it yourself you stop yourself from the total freedom of letting go.

So here you are and I am telling you in your heart to do something and you decide to ask someone else, or you procrastinate, or you want proof. I don't give proof! The beauty of total surrender is to have no proof and total trust in Him Who truly loves you! "Well, Lord, I know you are telling me this." Then, do it child! Let go! Feel the freedom of flying. You are totally free. I am running the balloons. You, child, let go. You totally surrendered to Me and at first you were afraid, but here you are flying and it is such freedom! Take in the sights. Be lighted on your way. Do you trust Me like that? If you don't, you are still in control.

The will of The Father I make clear to you. You want that security the world says you should have. The world is not secure. It is built on a sinking ship. It may look secure, but in one instant your ship could sink and if you are counting on yourself, what will you do?

I sail your balloon to heights you never dreamed possible. Let go. I run the balloon. There may be a little wind, but the freedom of sailing, of knowing you will never lose your way because Jesus is holding you up, what power Jesus has over all and He holds you up! If you go out on a limb for Him, He supports the limb. "Scary," you say? "Freedom," I say! When you trust your interior promptings this much, when you know God is this close that you will do whatever He calls you to, despite the world, that is freedom. You are My special messengers. The world is teaching some awfully sick messages. People are getting literally sick. Become selfless, let Me possess you so I can do what I need to through you.

The world wants you to have security, insurance, jobs that they consider safe. "Be sure you have all these things to be sure." Sure of what? That in one minute there can be an earthquake and it all is destroyed? You are not sure! I have all the power. You are so silly to think you are sure of anything in this world.

There is only one thing you can be sure of: I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. Put your trust in Me and then you are sure. You may not receive a reward in this world, but you, for sure, will receive a golden reward in the next.

Let go, My children. Seek after only the things of God. Do not store up earthly treasures that wither and fade. Store up heavenly treasures that never die.

Let go, My children. I am waiting for you to let go with both of your feet. Jump into the arms of Him Who saves you. You let go, I catch you. God is there to hold you up lest you stumble and lose your way.

You walk the road to My love. It does not go down the solid roads the world has built. It is a road suspended in the sky. To know Me is to let go. Get off that road that appears to the world as solid. You know an earthquake can split that road in half. Walk My road with Me. That may mean the road seems to be missing at times. But you do not have your ducks in a row. Minute by minute you follow a road supported by Me. What freedom! To trust in Me, to do My work with support from Me is so free, but so uncertain for your earthly minds.

I tell you in your hearts. The world wouldn't even hear that which becomes to you a command to obedience. I tell you to do such things. The more I possess your soul, the more it becomes Me acting out of you. You know you are doing things you would not have done before.

This is Me. When you beg Me to possess your soul, you let go and I take over. You don't need security here. You only need the inner promptings and the trust in your heart that God has spoken and you follow His command.

How can I minister to this sick world if you choose to keep one foot on what the world calls "solid ground"? I want to possess you. I want to operate from your very being. I want to be in constant communion with you. I want you to hear the pipeline to Me every second you breathe. You will do this when you let go. I need to have full reign to operate from you as I see fit. Believe Me, I will not be doing what you would do.

When you see yourself moving selflessly ahead, doing My work, no questions asked, when you are listening to your information from within instead of from without, then your pipeline is open and working. Your answers are in your heart. You search for your answers in a senseless world, while you cover up the answers in your heart. Let Me possess you. Be selfless, be unattached. Operate as I am telling you in your heart.

"But," you say, "Oh, how do you test it?" That is the world. The more you know Me, you do not even think. It is I Who operate you. You do not even deliberate. I just work through you and you see that what you did was a vital move in My plan. But you did not even deliberate much. You were pushed in that direction and you knew you had to do it.

Child, listen to your heart. I am calling you to quiet union with Me. Silence with Me. Let Me change you and make you open. Say the Prayer for Union with Jesus, then let go and let Me do My work. I need your total submission. Your security is not found in thinking. It is found in your heart, in being so attached to Me that it is I Who live and act from your soul.

I operate you like a little windup doll. You don't worry and fret. You just go. You ask no questions. You are selfless and unattached and what you achieve is the work of the Son of Man.

I am Jesus. I am God. I am He Who wants to possess you and use you. When I do something, I do not make mistakes. Quit trying to do it yourself. Let Me operate you. Let Me do it all. Get both feet off the ground and say, "Lord, Lord, I give you My all. You use me, You run me, You possess me. I am Yours." Die to yourself and all the things of the world. You are he whom I want to possess and use to do My work. If you continue to do it your way, it is your doing a so-so job. Let go and let Me do My work as I want it done!

Don't ask questions. Don't jump back to the ground and say, "Oh, but it got scary out there with nothing under my feet. I just wanted to stand on solid ground." My ground is all that you must walk. You do not have a choice. My life in you is like being suspended in midair. It only feels good when you have decided that you will let go, that you know in your heart that trusting in Me is the only way. What freedom, to sail the sky and never ever look for security!

This is life in Me. You can't go to the world. Life with Me is like this. Life in the world is sick. You can't go there. You don't let go so you are not fully here. So, there is discontent in your heart. One foot on, one foot off. Surrender, My child. Let go with both feet and don't question! I will lift you up and lead you on your way. I need you to do My work in this world. If you become selfless and let Me possess you, you will operate just as I want you to because I will be doing the work.

Don't look for security! Pray constantly. I am as close as your breath. I am He Who powers you. You will not falter for I will catch you on your way. Your only job is to let go and trust. Know I am truly here and you are never abandoned. I love you so. You are doing My work with all your heart and I am powering your heart. Let go. Living in Me is not the security that the world preaches. It is like being in midair and knowing I am by your side and will catch you. If you feel your life is like this, being in midair, you are doing a great job. But it is not you at all. It is I Who sustain you. It is I Who act from you. You are My precious ones. You, I love to My death! Trust Me. I died for you. I am your beautiful Jesus. I am your spouse. I am ever by your side and I love you with a heart on fire for love of you. Surrender. Let go and you will be free in the Lord!

R. Alleluia. And He made them His workers and they acted as He did in them and the world knew His love in mighty proportion through those who chose to serve the Lord. Alleluia. Our hearts are lifted to such heights in Him. His ways are secure!

I want My Priests to Come Back

January 17, 1994 3:40 a.m.

Jesus:  You know I am He Who lifts you up. In one second I can turn your feelings around and lift you up. Constantly pray to Me. You need Me through these times. Remember, I truly died for you on the cross. Remember, little one, I have chosen you to write to Me. Do you think I will ever abandon you? I am a God who truly loves His people. I love you with such ardent love. You must never doubt.

    Look into My face and see My gentleness. I am the kindest of all hearts. I am He who knows how to love with such love. Become totally lost in My arms.

    Do you think Satan will not taunt you? Put him behind you. You are being guarded by God and His heavenly court. Walk in My ways and the angels walk with you on your path. You are escorted on your way and you are never alone. You are guarded as a precious treasure that is being transported to another place.

    You need to put all your cares in My hands. You are developing true trust when you let go and let Me take over. Keep trusting and silence the ugly prompting of Satan who wants you to worry about useless things. Quit worrying and pray and play with your children. I am telling you there is so much peace and grace gained by private prayer with them. I will tend to all the details of your life. Do not worry for one moment. Put your life in My hands. I am here, little one. Read this message and all of them over and over again.

    You need to go to the Blue Book for your answers. Your answers are found there. I never leave your side. God is guarding you. Just continue to have a union with Me all through the day. All the prayer time alone with Me in one day is not enough. I want you in constant prayer.

    Turn to Me and My Blue Book. This will help many priests to come back and sit before Me in private union with Me. When priests come back to the tabernacle, the flock will begin to be led back to His altar. Priests need to read these letters. They are the preachers. If they do not value their own relationship with Jesus, if they are being led away from Me with busyness, they will not preach the intimate love of Jesus. They are so busy, but it is like throwing out the baby with the bath water. I am the center and their relationship with Me is utmost.

    The priests need these messages. They need to have an intimate, close union with Me. They should be preaching "time in front of the tabernacle." They should be preaching My intense love for My people and how I have so much to give. Some sermons are so complicated—yet nothing about union with Me in the Eucharist and in front of the tabernacle.

    I want My priests to come back and pray before My tabernacle. I want them to read these messages and make Jesus the Center of their lives. When they are led back to Jesus, they will lead the flock home. Priests need adoration every day for at least an hour. I don't care how busy they are. None of it matters if they are not spending time in private prayer alone with Me. They need to come and get their supplies. They need to quit thinking they are doing it and turn back to turning their lives totally over to Me, to totally letting their burdens and busy lives off at the foot of My cross and letting Me lead the way.

    There is not one priest who has so much to do that he cannot do private adoration daily. When the priest comes back to the power in the Eucharist and the tabernacle, the congregation will turn to God for their troubled hearts. Satan has led priests away from Jesus. They are so busy they cannot do all their work, but this must all take second place to praying silently before God and reading His words. These letters will help many priests to come back and be intimate with Jesus.

    All the rituals, all the upkeep of the churches, all the little details, and the King of Glory sits alone! You have thrown out the baby with the bath water. You are missing the boat.

    I want the priests to read this message. Where is the reverence after Communion and who has even heard it mentioned in the church? Private union with Jesus! What an honor! I have all you need. Come to Me and I will give you rest. I am all powerful. I have all the power. I am hyper—vigilant over your lives. I guard you. Quit trying to do it yourselves. Become selfless and let Me possess your souls.

    Have the priests spread these messages. Read them in church. I want adoration of the Eucharist back. I want people to know I am God and I am coming to them in Holy Communion. I want the Blessed Sacrament exposed. I want My churches open. Union with Jesus, the love of Jesus, trust, faith, love for one another, love of God—I want all of these preached from the pulpit!

    I am the Alpha and the Omega. I want My people to be led back to the center, which is Jesus. Pray for your priests. They are under attack. If Satan can wreck the family, the priests, the children, he has it made.

    You are under attack, My beloved priests, and you, in your busyness, are being led away from your union with Jesus. Bring yourselves back to Me and let Me give you My love. I am indeed the bridegroom of your souls. I wait for My beloved ones at the altar. I long for private union with all My beloved ones.

    Come to Me, all who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest. Come and be lifted up to heights you never dreamed possible. I am God. Put your lives in My hands. Let Me run your life. Quit running amok. You have lost your way and are running down the wrong road. Bring your lives back to Jesus in the tabernacle.

    The world is getting farther from God every minute. Read the messages at prayer meetings. Spread them by word of mouth. The time you waste is valuable. These words are not meant to be saved. Spread them here by any means possible. I want them out, I tell you! If someone wants to read some messages, give them to them and let them read them at prayer meetings. There is no secret here. They are from Me and I want them out. I want you to speak. A lot of your discontent is in sitting around with all these messages and not spreading them. Tell your friends to speak. Speak My words here. You don't have to mention the source. Spread the messages. You are not what is important. The messages are. You will be exposed. Don't worry who knows, but don't spread your own story. Spread the messages. Like ripples on a pond, the love of God will be spread throughout the land. I have so much to give to My hurting ones. I am your God. I died for you out of deepest love. I have come in these messages to lead you back home.

    Quit worrying of details. I am He Who runs the show. Pray for guidance every day. Spend one hour in front of the tabernacle. You cannot do in a million years what I can do in one moment. Quit relying on yourselves. You are only pushing buttons. When you are fixed in Me, the right door opens. When you go it alone, you have a hard road to walk. One hour in private adoration. Be silent or read the Blue Book. Your life will become uplifted by My teaching and you will sail a blue sky.

    Spend time in silence and some in reading My words in front of Me. I am talking to you in these letters. What power, to read them in front of the tabernacle! You can't go it alone. You need My help. You need your supplies. But you must come and get them! You are following your tail around if you do it alone. I am He Who can do all this. When you realize My power in adoration, your lives will change. As long as you are too busy you will have a hard time. The soul craves this union with Me.

    Lead the priests back to adoration and the people will follow. Our leaders have become too busy for adoration. This is the key, the key to unlock the doors to the world's problems. It is found in front of the tabernacle, at daily Mass and Communion. Do the priests ever preach any of this? You have forgotten your center, Jesus, in the Eucharist! All the power is found in Jesus. You have all that you need and you walk about and decorate My churches and clean every speck of dust and repair My pews and carpet My house and fix My organs but you walk about and miss the King of Glory who sits there all alone! Spread the messages on the tabernacle. I want them out!

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 in 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.

                Jesus: The devil tells you to control —

                I called you to do as I ask —

                Faith is Faith
                Hope is Hope
                Love is Love

                Humility is being truthful

                Pride is wanting to control for safety, for power,
                    for your personal emotional needs —

                Eve was prideful —

                Pride is the root of all evil —

                Circulate My Rosary Books

                So people will pray the rosary as Mary
                    asked at Fatima

                So people will know about the Fatima message —
                So people will give devotion to the 2 Hearts —
                So people will know Me — to follow Me —
                    to know God

                I am the Almighty God that
                    created the world from nothing —
                    that created the baby in the womb and

                You think you know so much —

                Fear is the opposite of Love


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


                A triangle can
                    block My direction 


                Triangles can be used
                    underneath authority
                    to block authority

                A closed set —

                You have 2 lungs to breath —
                    If both do not function
                        there is no breathe

                You can't have
                    obedience and disobedience
                    at the same time

                This Movement is given by the Heavenly
                    Father to help spread devotion
                    to My Heart and My Mother's Heart —

                To have a network of prayer chapters — spreading
                    Devotion to My Heart and
                        Mary's Heart all over the world —

                To have this order —
                    these prayer chapters praying for the
                        priests, the Church and the
                        world long after you are

                To have people who pray the prayers as
                    Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

                To have My Sacred Heart be the
                    King of people's hearts through
                    the world —

                Images of My Heart and Mary's Heart
                    all over the world —

                Praying of the Morning Offering

Exodus 32: 7-11, 13-14

Yahweh then said to Moses, ‘Go down at once, for your people whom you brought here from Egypt have become corrupt. They have quickly left the way which I ordered them to follow. They have cast themselves a metal calf, worshipped it and offered sacrifice to it, shouting, "Israel, here is your God who brought you here from Egypt!" ’ Yahweh then said to Moses, ‘I know these people; I know how obstinate they are! So leave me now, so that my anger can blaze at them and I can put an end to them! I shall make a great nation out of you instead.’

Moses tried to pacify Yahweh his God. ‘Yahweh,’ he said, ‘why should your anger blaze at your people, whom you have brought out of Egypt by your great power and mighty hand?

Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to whom you swore by your very self and made this promise: "I shall make your offspring as numerous as the stars of heaven, and this whole country of which I have spoken, I shall give to your descendants, and it will be their heritage for ever." ’ Yahweh then relented over the disaster which he had intended to inflict on his people.


Luke 15: 1-32

The tax collectors and sinners, however, were all crowding round to listen to him, and the Pharisees and scribes complained saying, ‘This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.’ So he told them this parable:

‘Which one of you with a hundred sheep, if he lost one, would fail to leave the ninety–nine in the desert and go after the missing one till he found it? And when he found it, would he not joyfully take it on his shoulders and then, when he got home, call together his friends and neighbours, saying to them, "Rejoice with me, I have found my sheep that was lost." In the same way, I tell you, there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner repenting than over ninety–nine upright people who have no need of repentance.

‘Or again, what woman with ten drachmas would not, if she lost one, light a lamp and sweep out the house and search thoroughly till she found it? And then, when she had found it, call together her friends and neighbours, saying to them, "Rejoice with me, I have found the drachma I lost." In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing among the angels of God over one repentant sinner.’

Then he said, ‘There was a man who had two sons. The younger one said to his father, "Father, let me have the share of the estate that will come to me." So the father divided the property between them. A few days later, the younger son got together everything he had and left for a distant country where he squandered his money on a life of debauchery. 

    ‘When he had spent it all, that country experienced a severe famine, and now he began to feel the pinch; so he hired himself out to one of the local inhabitants who put him on his farm to feed the pigs. And he would willingly have filled himself with the husks the pigs were eating but no one would let him have them. Then he came to his senses and said, "How many of my father’s hired men have all the food they want and more, and here am I dying of hunger! I will leave this place and go to my father and say: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you; I no longer deserve to be called your son; treat me as one of your hired men." So he left the place and went back to his father. 

    ‘While he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was moved with pity. He ran to the boy, clasped him in his arms and kissed him. Then his son said, "Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I no longer deserve to be called your son." But the father said to his servants, "Quick! Bring out the best robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the calf we have been fattening, and kill it; we will celebrate by having a feast, because this son of mine was dead and has come back to life; he was lost and is found." And they began to celebrate. 

    ‘Now the elder son was out in the fields, and on his way back, as he drew near the house, he could hear music and dancing. Calling one of the servants he asked what it was all about. The servant told him, "Your brother has come, and your father has killed the calf we had been fattening because he has got him back safe and sound." He was angry then and refused to go in, and his father came out and began to urge him to come in; but he retorted to his father, "All these years I have slaved for you and never once disobeyed any orders of yours, yet you never offered me so much as a kid for me to celebrate with my friends. But, for this son of yours, when he comes back after swallowing up your property—he and his loose women—you kill the calf we had been fattening." 

    ‘The father said, "My son, you are with me always and all I have is yours. But it was only right we should celebrate and rejoice, because your brother here was dead and has come to life; he was lost and is found." ’


Amos 6: 1, 4-7

Disaster for those
    so comfortable in Zion
and for those so confident
    on the hill of Samaria,
the notables of this first of nations,
those to whom the House of Israel
    has recourse!

Lying on ivory beds
and sprawling on their divans,
they dine on lambs from the flock,
and stall-fattened veal;
they bawl to the sound of the lyre
and, like David,
    they invent musical instruments;
they drink wine by the bowlful,
and lard themselves with the finest oils,
but for the ruin of Joseph
    they care nothing.
That is why they will now go
    into captivity,
heading the column of captives.
The sprawlers' revelry is over.


1 Timothy 6: 11-16

But, as someone dedicated to God, avoid all that. You must aim to be upright and religious, filled with faith and love, perseverance and gentleness.Fight the good fight of faith and win the eternal life to which you were called and for which you made your noble profession of faith before many witnesses. Now, before God, the source of all life, and before Jesus Christ, who witnessed to his noble profession of faith before Pontius Pilate, I charge you to do all that you have been told, with no faults or failures, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, 

who at the due time will be revealed 
by God, the blessed and only Ruler of all, 
the King of kings and the Lord of lords, 
who alone is immortal, 
whose home is in inaccessible light, 
whom no human being has seen 
    or is able to see: 
to him be honour and everlasting power. 


Luke 16: 19-31

'There was a rich man who used to dress in purple and fine linen and feast magnificently every day. And at his gate there used to lie a poor man called Lazarus, covered with sores, who longed to fill himself with what fell from the rich man's table. Even dogs came and licked his sores. Now it happened that the poor man died and was carried away by the angels into Abraham's embrace. The rich man also died and was buried.

    'In his torment in Hades he looked up and saw Abraham a long way off with Lazarus in his embrace. So he cried out, "Father Abraham, pity me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in agony in these flames." Abraham said, "My son, remember that during your life you had your fill of good things, just as Lazarus his fill of bad. Now he is being comforted here while you are in agony. But that is not all: between us and you a great gulf has been fixed, to prevent those who want to cross from our side to yours or from your side to ours."

    'So he said, "Father, I beg you then to send Lazarus to my father's house, since I have five brothers, to give them warning so that they do not come to this place of torment too." Abraham said, "They have Moses and the prophets, let them listen to them." The rich man replied, "Ah no, father Abraham, but if someone comes to them from the dead, they will repent." Then Abraham said to him, "If they will not listen either to Moses or to the prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone should rise from the dead."

  26th Sunday Ordinary Time

September 30, 2007 

INTRODUCTION:  Last week’s first reading was from Amos and so is today’s.  Last week his prophecy was aimed at materialism and the oppression of the poor in the northern kingdom of Israel.  Today’s reading (Amos 6, 1a.4-7) seems directed to the people in the southern kingdom, “the complacent in Zion” (another name for Jerusalem).  Perhaps this warning came after the Assyrians destroyed the northern kingdom which is called “Joseph” in today’s reading.  The complacent in Jerusalem were living pampered, comfortable lives, paying no attention to the devastation of the north and not concerned that their own country was headed toward the same fate because of their social and moral depravity.  Amos was a true prophet whose words to be true. 


HOMILY: Two men were in a private plane and they crashed on an island in the South Pacific.  They both survived and one of the survivors right away surveyed the island and returned to his buddy to tell him they were doomed.  The island was uninhabited and he could find no food or water.  His buddy said “Not to worry.  I make $250,000 a week.”  The man shook his friend and said “You don’t understand.  We’re going to die.  There’s no one around, no food, no water.”  His buddy repeated: “Not to worry.  I make $250,000 a week.”  Once more he screamed at him saying: “Don’t you hear me.  We’re going to die.  There’s no food, no water, no one around.”  His buddy said: “Don’t worry.  I make $250,000 a week.  I’m a Church going Christian and I tithe.  My pastor will find us!” 


Today’s gospel (Lk. 16, 19-31) always leaves me feeling guilty.  I live a fairly comfortable life (I have a place to live, enough to eat, a bed to sleep in, I like to go out occasionally for a nice meal) and there are so many people like Lazarus out there.  I try to give generously to charity, but the many people suffering all over the world is overwhelming.  I’m sure many of you feel the same way.  At the same time, I hate to be taken advantage of by phonies and that has happened more times than I would like to admit in the past 43 years.  I just do what I can, knowing I can’t solve every problem.  It’s good to be challenged by Jesus, however, because unless we’re challenged, we easily become complacent and self centered.  That’s what happened to the people of Jerusalem at the time of Amos.  That’s what happened to the rich man in today’s gospel. 


Amos and Jesus are not saying a person will automatically be condemned because they are wealthy or will automatically be saved because they are poor.  We will all be judged by the same law, the great commandment of love - love for God and love for others.  I know people who are well off and at the same time they are very loving and generous, and I know people who are poor who are self-centered and egotistical.  Having wealth is not necessarily a vice and being poor is not necessarily virtuous.  The rich man in today’s gospel was condemned not because he was a bad man, cruel, violent or evil; he was condemned for a lack of love.  For him Lazarus just didn’t exist.  When the rich man wanted a favor from Lazarus in the next life, Abraham told him that there was a great chasm between the two of them.  One commentator pointed out that the rich man was the one who created the chasm in the first place, holding Lazarus at arms length as if he wasn’t there.  Even in the next life, the rich man treated Lazarus as his lackey, not even addressing him but asking Abraham to send him to bring water or to go to warn his brothers. 


Probably no society in the history of this world has enjoyed comfort than we do in America today.  Kings and emperors did not live as well as most middle class families in America.  Comfort is not sinful.  But it is distracting and can be dangerous in that it can make us turn our attention increasingly toward ourselves and help us to forget about our responsibility to help others. 


Our readings today force us to consider our personal attitude toward the material blessings we enjoy.  The essence of today’s readings is that no matter how hard we’ve worked or how talented we may be or how thrifty we’ve been, what we have is not just for our own self indulgence.  We must share with others.  The irony of this is that on the whole, those who have less of this world’s goods are more generous than those who have been blessed with more.  I say this because statistics show that, in general, the more income a person has the less, percentage wise, they give to charity.  That is really ironic.


Most often Jesus’ words are very comforting, but today’s readings may make us uncomfortable, especially if we need to be made more sensitive to the suffering of others.  If Jesus makes us uncomfortable it’s to help us think about what God wants from us and if we are doing what he wants?  Jesus wants only one thing, our salvation, and the only way that can happen is if we follow the way he has shown us.   

If we keep remembering where our blessings come from, then we will be more likely to remember that they have not been given to us just to help us become selfish, self-centered people.  Our great prayer of thanksgiving each week, which we call the Mass or the Eucharist, helps us to keep remembering where all our blessings come from.
