Shepherds of Christ Meeting

Sorrowful Mysteries

R. Let us put ourselves in this room and feel very, very close to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Let us see His burning Heart, filled with such love for each one of us and know that as we are here, that He is guarding our every breath and our every heartbeat, in deepest love, that we are never alone and that He is forever with us.

The Agony of Our Lord in the Garden

1. R. Let us be with Jesus as He knelt in the garden, put ourselves there against that darkened night and feel the anguish that He felt in His Heart: To know all the sins, of all men, from all times, all the ugly, terrible sins, from the beginning to this present time!

2. R. The anguish was so great in His Heart for Jesus loves each and every soul so much that He gave Himself for love of them.

3. R. As we meditate on the mysteries of the rosary we see the life of Jesus and how He lived. He came to show us the way and His way was sacrifice. As we meditate on these mysteries of the rosary, these sorrowful mysteries, let us see His way. His way is the way of sacrifice.

4. R. Look at all of the terms that are used this day - terms that are used for love. Love is giving of oneself. As we meditate on these mysteries of this rosary, let us see how Jesus gave Himself in greatest love of us. Let us think in our mind how He gives Himself to us this day in the Holy Eucharist. We received Him.

5. R. The world cries out to be fed – the world that is hurting and in pain, that is so involved in such vile deeds, when Jesus comes with a gentle and kind Heart and gives Himself to us. How many reject His love? How He suffered in the Garden, with such pain and anguish in His Heart, for He loves with the deepest love and He cries out for us to come and be so close to Him. He is ignored and forgotten and treated with such disrespect. His name is used in vain, but not spoken with love many times as it should be. We should be kind to Jesus and He loves us so much.

6. R. Jesus calls out how He wants everyone to know how much He loves and we do not hear these words because we do not want to sacrifice. We think that we can do it our way. Jesus comes and He shows us the way. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Nothing feeds the starved soul but the love of God.

7. R. Jesus' apostles slept. Jesus calls out to us this day, "Can you not watch one hour with Me?" Who are we that God loves us so much that the Father sent, His only begotten Son into this world and that He gave Himself for love of us on the cross? Jesus gives Himself to us this day in the Holy Eucharist. When we receive the Holy Eucharist, when we are so deeply connected to Him, tell Him how we want to help make reparation to His Heart for all of the neglect and indifference against His precious Heart.

8. R. You know how it is to love someone so much and to be rejected. Jesus is love. Jesus loves with the most perfect love. How His Heart was in anguish for the rejection of those that He loved so dearly. Jesus knelt in the Garden against the darkened night. We walk in this world, this day, that is clouded and surrounded by darkness and as He lives in us we become the lights that shine in this darkness. Let us, in this rosary, open up our hearts wide and let Him unite, deeper and deeper, to us, that He will live in us, more and more and shine His light to this darkened world through us.

9. Hail Mary

The Scourging of Our Lord at the Pillar

Song: Come unto me all who are weary and find rest for your soul

1. R. So many times in this world today we are persecuted in the workplace, by those that we come in contact with, for professing our love of God. Jesus is alive and He lives in our hearts. As we meditate on this mystery, see Jesus bound to the pillar, His hands tied, and look at the faces of the men who beat Jesus.

2. Jesus: They will laugh at you, My beloved ones. I am Jesus. I am calling to you to be strong soldiers in this world, to stand as lights, that shine, in the darkest night.

3. R. Jesus' way is love. His way is always love. We see Him bound at the pillar in perfect peace. Jesus did not resist His attackers. Jesus, the Son of God, accepted all that was given to Him.

4. R. Look at the world today and see how the world talks about love.

5. R. Then look at the face of Jesus. See the wounds, to His head from the men that beat Him, the wounds that covered His back, the raw wounds. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Jesus came to show us the way - His way is sacrifice.

6. R. Jesus gave Himself that we could share in His life.

7. R. All through the day we go through struggles. It is in accepting these struggles that we live and we share in His life, death and resurrection in our lives. Let the light of Jesus shine from us to the world that is so covered with darkness. Let our hearts be open and let His radiant love flow from us to this world.

8. R. Look at Jesus as He stands at the pillar and see the men as they beat Him, as they raise their arms and the whips come down and tear His precious skin. This is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He gives Himself for us. We do not realize how dearly He truly loves us. Who are we that God put on a human body and allowed Himself to be scourged and beaten for love of us and we whimper and complain about the little crosses we are asked to bear when they are great gifts that He gives us to share more fully in His life.

9. Hail Mary
10. Hail Mary

 

The Crowning with Thorns

R. Jesus comes and He shows us His Heart, surrounded by thorns, thorns that press into His Heart for the indifference and the neglect of those He loves so dearly.

1. R. Do we know how Jesus longs for us to come to Him and to tell Him how much we love Him? How He wants us to talk to Him all through the day. How He is attentive at every moment and loves us and cares for every single thing that we do. Jesus cares for us more than any human person could love us, He wants us to talk to Him.

2. R. How these words of love comforted Jesus during His bitter Passion - the words that we speak to Him today, when we go to Him and tell Him our heartfelt love and tell Him, Jesus, Jesus how I love you, how I love you - Jesus, my beloved!

3. R. They pounded into His precious head, a sharp crown of piercing thorns, that pierced His skull in so many places. The red blood from our Savior ran down His head, down His face, and into His hair. This is the love He shows us – a head crowned with thorns and a face smeared with dripping blood.

4. R. Jesus tenderly tells us over and over again: I love you, I love you! How do we respond to this love given from our precious Jesus? He loves to hear us all through the day, tell Him how much we love Him.

5. R. Do we pray at church, or pray when we are quiet in our room and then leave the room and when we are with others forget how one in us, He wants to be? How Jesus wants to operate through us as we go about our way in this world. Jesus wants to be one in us in all of our actions. Jesus wants us to know that in all of our cares that He is listening and He is by us, Jesus is comforting us.

6. Song: I Love You Jesus

7. Hail Mary
8. Hail Mary
9. Hail Mary
10. Hail Mary

R. How tenderly He loves us that He gave Himself for love of us.

 

Jesus Carries His Cross

R. Jesus stood, His hands were tied and Jesus was surrounded by those He came to save, by those He loved, by those He was willing to give His life for. Jesus stood there silent and the crowd shouted, "Crucify Him, Crucify Him!"

1. R. How many times today do we feel that we are alone in this world? We are so close to God and the world seems to be so far from God. Do we hear the crowd? They called to Jesus, crucify Him, crucify Him - Jesus, the Son of God was rejected by those He came to save - why should we think that we will be treated any differently this day when we go into the world and talk about Jesus?

2. R. They gave to Jesus a heavy cross that He carried on His back and He fell to the ground. I see His face against the ground and the cross on His back. How many times today do we try so hard to spread the love of Jesus and we are met with such opposition and rejection? We know in our hearts His deep and burning love. We are the lights that He is sending into this darkened world filled with His grace and His love.

3. R. (Mary is illuminated and lights are flashing all around her.) This is our Sorrowful Mother with a sword in her heart and how many times I have sat here and heard her call out to deliver this message of burning love to this world, to come to the Eucharist and be filled as He outpours His grace. The grace that He gives to us whereby we participate more fully in His life. We see our Sorrowful Mother with a sword in her heart and we vow to go into this world and to carry that light in the darkness. Our hearts are filled with love of her Son. We beg you, Mary, to ask your Spouse, the Holy Spirit, to give us all that we need, to do what You are asking of us.

4. R. Jesus comes with a gentle and kind Heart, a Heart that is filled with burning love for love of us. Jesus' greatest agonies are not the agonies suffered to His body, the flesh that was torn, the crowning with thorns - they were the agonies suffered to His most precious Heart filled with the deepest love for men. (She is so beautiful!)

5. Song: A Song from Jesus

R. Let us thank God for all the great graces that He has given to us and let us return to Him our great love.

6. R. Jesus fell three times on the way to Calvary. How many times do we fall and we want to give up. Then we go to Him and He fills our hearts with His burning love. Let us thank Jesus for allowing us to share in His life, whether it be suffering or joy, to walk in the world with Jesus and to share in His life.

7. R. Let us go to that heart of the Sorrowful Mother that watched her Son Jesus as He fell to the ground. Jesus' hands were nailed to the cross. Let us go to her heart and ask her to help us love her Son, Jesus, through her heart as she loved her Son Jesus.

8. Hail Mary
9. Hail Mary
10. Hail Mary

 

Jesus was Crucified and Dies on the Cross

R. The beloved cross of Jesus, the cross that the Savior died on. Let us forever keep before our eyes the cross of Christ, for in this vision, we know more fully, His tremendous love for us. Let us see Jesus on the crucifix and love the crucifix. Look at Jesus' hands that are pierced with the nails, think of how Jesus hung and of how they tore the tissue from Jesus' hands. Let us meditate on the wounds of our Savior. These are the wounds of His love for us.

1. R. Jesus gave Himself for love of us. At every Mass let us unite with the sacrifice of Jesus, to the Father, that we may die to those ways that are not like His, that we may offer ourselves as a sacrifice with Jesus, to the Father - the most pleasing sacrifice to the Father, the gift of His Son!

2. R. Let us unite with the priest at those precious moments when the bread is changed into the Body of Christ and the wine is changed into His Blood - this gift that takes place in every Mass through the hands of the priest, what a gift it is. Let us pray for greater grace to participate more fully in this gift of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

3. R. We join in this intimate act of love between Divinity and humanity when God gives Himself to us. Let us give ourselves to Him and not hold anything back.

4. R. In this most intimate act, God gives Himself to us in the Holy Eucharist. We search and we look for love, when nothing on the face of the earth can compare to this great gift that God gives to us in the Mass. Jesus gives Himself to us in the Holy Eucharist. I see Him hanging on the cross, Jesus' head and Jesus' face covered with blood. Jesus' pierced hands and feet pierced. This is our beloved Savior. Jesus gave Himself! Jesus' Heart pierced with a lance. Jesus gives Himself to us today. Jesus is neglected and treated with such indifference, such irreverence and such disrespect, when we should be in such awe for what we are given in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

    Let us, at every Eucharist, help make reparation to Jesus' adorable Heart for the injustices and the offenses against Him. Let us make reparation to the Heart of our beloved Mother for the blasphemies against her Immaculate Heart. Let us keep forever the cross of Christ before our eyes and love the cross that we know more and more, His deep and burning love for us. It is Death/Resurrection. In baptism we receive a sharing in His life. In suffering we can grow in greater life in Him.

5. Hail Mary
6. Hail Mary
7. Hail Mary

8. R. Let us make the Stations very often. It is in walking the Way of the Cross in the Stations with Him that we understand more and more the Passion and Way of the Cross and so His immense love for us. See Mary as she holds the lifeless body of her Son in her arms under the cross. Jesus always did the Father's will. Mary always complied to the Father's will. It is in following the Father's will that we will have peace and joy in our lives. I see Jesus in her arms under the cross. To Jesus' death He complied to the Father's will. This is the love that Jesus has for us - that Jesus gave Himself on the cross, and He gives Himself to us this day in the Holy Eucharist. He calls out, "tell them, Rita, tell them, how I long for their love, how I wait and how I thirst for them to come to spend time with Me." Jesus wants us to talk to Him all through the day, to tell Him of our love for Him. Let us pray for the grace to know, love and serve God more.

9. Hail Mary
10. Hail Mary

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

R. The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present. I give myself in the act of total surrender to the Father. The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary, sacramentally made present -- meditate on this. The celebrant, the priest, is to be so one with Christ. The priest putting on Christ so one in offering himself to the Father. This sacrifice is so pleasing to the Father.

Jesus: Unite in this Holy Sacrifice, My chosen ones. All through the day unite all your chores as a holy offering in union with the Holy Sacrifice being offered throughout the world, to the Father. Every action you perform is magnified in this holy offering. Love is sacrifice. You give in this offering your greatest act of love when you give Him yourself. Live in this total surrender, yielding to the Father, living in His Will and you will give the greatest act of love to Him and to all.

    I gave My life for you. You give your life to the Father, united in this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. I call you to love God and love one another. In this sacrifice you surrender yourself and offer yourself to God. This is the greatest act of love you can give to each other, to live in the Father's will.

    Be not prideful, selfish, blind or dumb. Be as I have taught you. To My death on the cross I complied to the Father's will.

    This is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the sacrifice of Calvary, sacramentally made present. Unite yourselves to this at all times.

    I am giving to you great graces to grow deeper in your union with Me. The Holy Spirit gives to you a sharing in these insights into these mysteries, into knowing about sharing in Divine life in baptism. Open your hearts and pray to receive these graces and to grow more and more in your knowledge, love and serve of God.

    Come to My altar and celebrate the mystery of God's love. You come to the altar as you are and you ask for forgiveness for all of your offenses, with a humble and contrite heart you ask for mercy from the Almighty God for your sins.

    In this celebration you come to praise, give thanks, petition and offer yourselves in greatest love to the Almighty God.

    The word of God is read, every word so special, to feed you in your life. Each word fills you with the greatest love of God. You sing praises to Him who is all worthy of all of your love.

 

January 10, 1996 - 9:00 a. m. at Mass

Emptying Yourself is the Only Way

R. Jesus gave Himself as the greatest sacrifice ever, totally emptying Himself. They pierced His Heart and what flowed out was blood and water. When we love Him we empty ourselves more and more and identify with Jesus' sacrifice of offering Himself. I realized how I was to empty myself because I love Him so much.

    In the Psalm of the Good Shepherd, it says, .."And I will dwell in the courts of the Lord for years to come." My whole desire is to be united with Him in deepest union forever, our lives have meaning in this.

    With all my heart I offer myself as a sacrifice for the spread of the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary and Their intentions. My whole consuming desire is for this intention of giving myself to God, to use me as you want to, according to the Father's Plan.

    Such love for the Father, giving myself to Him, imperfect as I am, but such great love for Him. The Gospel was about the Father - this overwhelmed me with love for Him, seeing how He is one with Jesus, but knowing Him as My beloved Father. Great joy in this oneness with God. I love the Trinity - I love each Person of the Trinity, I love God.

    I want to give the greatest love to God. The greatest love I can give is in emptying myself - it is in sacrifice wanting the Father's will for me. My great love for Him compels me to see no alternative. I love Him so much. I give myself freely without counting the cost. There is not another way.

    In my overwhelming love for Him I totally empty myself and realizing there is not another way, for to love Him is to give myself to Him as He desires.

    The greatest gift I can give to others is giving myself to Him. Jesus emptied Himself. I understand more, emptying myself with all my heart. Wanting to love Him more, I learn to empty myself, pray for self-lessness.

    We are to love Him with all our heart, all our soul, all our being. Our greatest desire is God's will. We should love to be united to Him in deepest union for all eternity, there is not a choice. It takes giving of oneself, emptying oneself to Him and giving great love to others.

    It is in the Mass we give the greatest love to God as we join in this sacrifice with His Son, Jesus. The Mass, offered through the hands of the priest, to the Father.

    Jesus emptied Himself and gave His all. In the Mass this sacrifice is sacramentally made present. We unite, we die to our selfish ways. When the priest raises up the Host and says, "This is My Body", the Father looks down and sees the sacrifice of His Son. We unite and give ourselves, give our all, offer ourselves, as a sacrifice to the Father, united to Jesus. When the priest raises up the chalice and says, "This is My Blood", we give ourselves - we empty ourselves, and we want to die to all that is not like Him. We die to live more in Him. Jesus feeds us with His Body and His Blood and He gives to us the "Bread of Life."

    He tells us, "I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me shall not be hungry." Look at the world. Look at the hungry souls. Jesus gives Himself to us, to feed us. He feeds us with His very own Body and Blood.

    As we unite in this Holy Sacrifice all over the world all day we can unite to the Mass. We see the Body and Blood of Christ raised and elevated in our hearts, we unite every moment of the day in our self-sacrificing gift of our love, given to God.

    We die to our ways not like Jesus and offer ourselves united to Jesus as a sacrifice to the Father. We receive an outpouring of His grace – His life more and more in abundance, dying that we share in His life. All through the day make spiritual communions and unite to this gift of Himself given in the Holy Eucharist. The greatest gift of our love is to empty ourselves and give ourselves to God.

Priests Raise High the Host

R. This offering continues all day in all our actions, if we unite them to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We offer ourselves as a sacrifice. We die with Him, that we will raise to new life more and more in Him. Our every action is an offering with Jesus, His Son, to the Father in the Holy Spirit.

    This is our continual love, given to God and to all men, as we unite in this our offering. Whatever we do, if it is the Will of the Father, we are offering a great act of love to God.

    Through Him, With Him, and In Him, I die with Jesus and unite in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

Special Moments in the Mass:

    Let us celebrate the Mystery of God's love. Let us open our hearts to the graces He gives us that we may understand more fully the great gift of the Mass. Jesus Christ gives Himself to us. Who are we that God gave Himself as a sacrifice on the cross for love of us and the sacrifice of Calvary is sacramentally made present in the Mass, all over the world all day.

    Help us to receive graces to understand more fully this Divine Mystery of God's love and to treasure the gift of Himself, given to us in the Holy Eucharist.

    The world is so hungry, waiting to be fed and He comes with a kind and gentle Heart and gives us the gift of Himself. The world is looking for the perfect love affair. Jesus gives Himself to us and we give ourselves to Him in the deepest act of intimate love in the Mass.

    When the priest mixes the drop of water with the wine and says, "let us share in the Divinity of Christ, who humbled Himself to share in our humanity." Think of this God who gives us a sharing in His life.

    The first miracle at Cana was when God changed water into wine. How great it would be to witness this miracle. How much greater is the gift of the Mass when, through the hands of the priest, bread is changed into the Body of Christ and wine is changed into His Blood.

    I pray the priest raises high the consecrated host that I may love this gift more and more in the Mass, that I may see the great love of God, more and more. Let's spread this message about the intimate love of God at Mass.

    I want to adore His Body and adore His Blood, and to offer my all - to the Father.

    Every word of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is so beautiful. Let us savor these special words of greatest love.

    I see the hands of the priest as so sacred. He is so sacred and chosen by God. Such dignity and love should be given to the priest!

The More I Give to Jesus, the More One I Am

R. Last night at Mass I had such an experience at St. Gertrude's. I was overwhelmed with offering myself united to Jesus as a sacrifice to the Father, in the Holy Spirit.

    They surrounded Him and cried "crucify Him". He carried the cross and offered no resistance.

    I realized, to have a love relationship with God, an intimate love relationship, there must be self giving on my part. I must give myself! An intimate act is the giving of each person to the other.

    I am overwhelmed in wanting to give myself to God. I am filled with this great grace and all I see is Him and His magnificence and I want to give Him my all.

    The more I give, the more intimate the act, the more I empty myself, the more intimate the act between Him and me. The more I give of myself, the deeper the intimacy.

    Yesterday I had a good day, realizing how He is truly with me and attentive to me at every second.

    I recognize it as a sharing in His Passion and He is in control. I accept the cross and seek to live His life, death and resurrection in my life. I am giving myself to Him.

    I see my wretchedness, in this self-giving. How far I am from being like Him! I realize the Holy Spirit will have to change me to be more like Jesus.

    Mary conceived Jesus in her womb through the power of the Holy Spirit.

   

January 13, 1996 - 8:30 a. m.

There are 3 Persons in One God

R. I felt as if I couldn't breathe. I realized the Father's love and how He is one with Jesus and I receive the Almighty God in Communion. Deep connection is surrendering to Him as the little, dependent child, and realizing His immense oneness with Jesus. To know I receive the Almighty God, I realize the love between Father and Son and the Holy Spirit. I realize the presence of God in the Eucharist and my overwhelming desire to empty myself, that I may be deeper in union with God, my total desire being this deep union with God for all eternity.

    And, He reached down and in that moment I beheld God before my eyes, the Almighty, never changing, presence of God and my heart was in immense peace and awe for to know Him, to be saturated with His love, is to possess your heart's desire.

    Alleluia, God loves His people!

 

January 14, 1996 - 1:20 a m.

What Are You Doing?

R. I was standing in the laundry by the dryer and felt the Lord asking me what I was doing and told me to go to bed. I knew He was there, the same as if He was standing there, and I was afraid: I fear the Lord - He is Almighty!

    I was in awe. He told me to come and pray and be with Him. Even feeling His presence as I did, I wanted to continue to do more things and make Him wait.

    I was aware of myself and He came from nowhere and it shocked me. I heard Him say, "what are you doing". He was standing in the doorway.

 

January 14, 1996 - 8:30 Mass

Love God, Love Others

R. I spent so much time tending to my life, being with others and I feel it takes me from Him and I want so much to be with Him and love Him and felt Him telling me that I must love Him in all others, see all the good things they do, see their unique beauty and with all the love I have for Him - pour it out to them. The world needs this love.

    This is how He loves the world through us. I love Him so much and He loves me so much that in my burning desire to give my love to Him, I see the reflection of Him in them and pour out my burning love to them. We are one body in Him. In loving others, I am loving Him.

    Love God - Love one another. The love of God flows into love of everyone. It cannot be disconnected, it is all one. We are all one. He is the Head, we are the members of His body.

    I long and thirst for You, my God. I give my love to You in others. Love flows as a bubbling brook. It doesn't stop and start - Love IS!

    My love is not separate. His love and love for others - it is all one. My burning love for Him compels me to love all His creatures. Anything to do with Him, I love because I love Him so much.

 

January 15, 1996

I Offered Myself Entirely

R. Even when I do not see you, you are so present, Lord. You are with me always - always there. I offered myself entirely to Him. I suffered so much since Friday about some things relating to others. I didn't get to pray much and that is what I love the most at those times with Him. I need Him and I miss Him when I feel distant from Him. I love Him so much.

    My body hurt all day yesterday. Friday night I had pains in my hands and feet. Yesterday I had pains in my right hand and chills, feeling sick. My hands have a constant ache. I had pains in my left foot most of the morning, but my body - how it hurt, hurt to move, my legs hurt when I stood and I felt as if I wouldn't walk or stand anymore because my legs hurt so much. I wanted to relieve the pain.

    I see more to love Him is to want to suffer with Him. Friday night when my feet and hands hurt, it was a constant realization of His presence with me.

    The more I am one with Jesus - the more I know the Presence of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. to have the presence of Jesus is to have the presence of God.

    It is because of the suffering pain I feel so close to Him now, after the Eucharist. I am close to Him when I suffer.

    When I am in pain, I can be in that inner room with Him. My left foot and my body really hurt. Yesterday I could hardly bend my knees. Right now my right foot hurts too, but it is as the pains - you experience the pain but you cannot touch it or press on it. I am just experiencing it at this moment - my left hand hurts and my right foot.

Compile the Mass Book

R. Soon Mary began appearing on the 5ths at Holy Cross-Immaculata and I received extraordinary ecstasies concerning the Mass and was told to compile this book and publish it immediately. 

Fr. Carter could not have it discerned by the deadline of his birthday January 15, 1996 and soon the struggle began with the Imprimatur on this book. All messages from Jesus were de-messagetized to get the Imprimatur — the visions and experiences "watered down" so possibly I could receive the Imprimatur as God told us to do. Two years later we got it.

Tuesday, Before the Tabernacle

Glorious Mysteries

The Resurrection

1. R. What a great gift that we are given in Baptism: a sharing in His Divine Life. The price that Jesus paid is His life that He gave for us on the cross. See Jesus as He hangs on the cross, His face covered with blood and crowned with thorns, His body withered, His hands and feet pierced. He gave the last drop of His blood and the last beat of His Heart. He showed us the way. His way is the way of total surrender. He gave His all and He remains with us this day in this room.

    Jesus Christ, the same Jesus that walked the earth, the Son of God, remains in this room, in the tabernacle, and is longing and waiting for us to tell Him how deeply we love Him and give ourselves to Him. He wants intimacy with Him. Love is giving - He gives to us and we give to Him. This is the sharing of this intimacy between Him and us. The more we give of ourselves, the more we die to ourselves in the ways that are not like Him. The more we surrender ourselves, the deeper our relationship with Him becomes, for it is a relationship. He outpours His love to us. We partake more fully as we surrender and give more of ourselves to Him.

    Jesus calls each one of us here in this Shepherds of Christ Movement to deeper intimacy with Him. We have been called and we have been chosen. We are a light that He is sending into this world to take the message of His love and Jesus asks for holiness - holiness in all of our actions, for it is in our speech and the way that we conduct ourselves that we preach the mightiest lessons of His love for us. We are receiving great graces from Him as He promised, to carry out this mission. You have been called and you have been chosen. We have the greatest treasure that there is: the love of God, Jesus Christ, truly present in this room and giving Himself to us. This is a rosary about life, about sharing in His life through baptism and He feeds this life with Himself. We grow more and more in this graced life. We live His life, death and resurrection in our lives.

    To know Him a little is to want so much more, for nothing on the face of this earth is like the love of God. Let us open up our hearts and let Him fill us with His Divine Love that we may be more and more satisfied.

2. Song: Come give me life, abundant life, I thirst to be with Thee

3. R. I see the withered body of Jesus as He hung on the cross and I see Him as He comes forth from the tomb, glistening in light, His glorified wounds - the Almighty God!

4. R. We cannot even comprehend the glory that awaits us. To know Him a little is to know how wonderful it is to share more and more in His life. Jesus wants to abundantly fill us with this life. We must spend time with Jesus. Jesus has the time for us, we are the ones that keep ourselves from Him. We busy ourselves and become more and more busy - and does the work really get done? Jesus calls us to spend time each day to put the fragmented pieces of our life together, for our source of this life is from Him. When we are Baptized we receive a sharing in His Life: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit live within us in a special way. As we go out to the world, as we interact, we must come to the interior of our hearts to know what Jesus is telling us about Himself and about our lives.

    If we do not spend this time every day with Jesus we miss what God wants to communicate to us. This world in many ways has turned godless. It is in these precious moments that we spend with Him that He feeds us, that He comforts us and He fills us deeply with His love. He calls each one of us this evening to make a commitment to Him that we will take time each day to be alone with Him. No matter how busy the day is, that we find time in our day to just sit with Him and enjoy the presence of the Almighty God within our hearts.

5. Jesus: In your busyness you have forgotten how much I am calling you to come and to be with Me. I am calling you this evening in a special way to a commitment to spend time alone every day with the Almighty God.

6. R. You do not see that if we run down the road at a fast pace it doesn't matter if it is the wrong road, or how fast that we ran down the road, if we spin our wheels and we do not go anywhere. It doesn't matter how fast we spin our wheels. Jesus is the Almighty God. He is so present to us. He knows our every thought, our every desire in our heart, and He stands by us and He says to us, "what are you doing? I am here. I am with you. Come to the silence of your heart and know My peace and My love."

7. R. Jesus paid such a price for us to share in His life. What a treasure, that we receive this sharing in His Divine life in baptism.

8. Hail Mary
9. Hail Mary

10. Jesus: You look the other way and I stand and knock on the door of your heart. I want such intimacy with you, My beloved ones. Surrender and give yourselves to Me. Quit controlling your lives, surrender and let go. Come to Me. I am Lord and Master of your life. I guard you. I watch you. I am attentive to your every need.

Sing: God's Love

 

The Ascension of Our Lord into Heaven

Acts 1: 9-11

     As he said this he was lifted up while they looked on, and a cloud took him from their sight. They were still staring into the sky as he went, when suddenly two men in white were standing beside them, and they said, ‘Why are you Galileans standing here looking into the sky? This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven will come back in the same way as you have seen him go to heaven.’

R. Before Jesus ascended into Heaven, He gave to the apostles the power to baptize and to forgive sins.

1. R. He took them out to the town near Bethany. Jesus raised His arms and He ascended into Heaven.

2. R. They stood in utter amazement as the cloud took Him from their sight.

3. R. Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit to them. The apostles were filled with fear and they locked themselves in the upper room.

4. R. We see Mary in the Visitation as she greets Elizabeth and she tells her the good news. I see Jesus ascend into Heaven and He leaves behind the apostles to carry out His work and we see how the Church has grown this day. We are commissioned in Baptism to carry out His life, death, and resurrection in our lives. As we go through our lives we carry out His life, death and resurrection. We walk the walk to Calvary with Him. We fall under the cross. We are persecuted and misunderstood, we are rejected, we share more fully in the life of Jesus. Many may stand around us, ridicule us as they ridiculed Jesus, but we know in our hearts of the love of God. We know what it is to share in this intimacy with the Almighty God and nothing: persecution, ridicule, falling to the ground, spitting in our face, can stop us, for we have been called and we have been chosen as His special apostles to go out to this world and to carry out His life, death and resurrection in our lives.

    Jesus asked us to model our lives after Him. See Jesus in all of His actions. Would He act like me? Would He talk like me? Is there holiness in this action? Jesus is calling us to be His apostles and He is giving to us great graces to grow ever more in our lives in Him. We must constantly look at our actions and see that they are the actions of holiness for He calls us and we have been chosen for this special mission to go into this world that is suffering and in pain and to carry the Gospel  message - the Good News - we are commissioned in baptism to do this.

    We are to be examples in all that we do and in all that we say. Jesus ascended into Heaven but He remains with us this day and He gives to us the bread of life. He gives us His Body and His Blood, to nourish us and He asks us in every Mass that we unite in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and die to ourselves and offer our lives as an offering to the Father. We are to die to those things that are not like Him, that we may be more and more holy and that we unite in deep intimacy with Him in Communion. Let us open our hearts and let Him work within us.

Song: A Song from Jesus

Jesus: I come to you this day.

Song: A Song from Jesus

Jesus: I call you to holiness. I call you to consecration, to consecrate your hearts every day, to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. You are My apostles and you are commissioned in Baptism to carry out My life, death and resurrection in your lives.

5. R. Are you hungry? Nothing, nothing feeds the starved soul but the love of God.

Song: I Am the Bread of Life

6. Hail Mary
7. Hail Mary
8. Hail Mary

9. Jesus: Many are called but few are chosen. I have chosen you, My beloved ones for intimate union with Me. Open wide your hearts and let Me fill you with My life.

10. Hail Mary

 

The Descent of the Holy Spirit

R. They were gathered in the upper room with the Blessed Virgin Mary and there was a gigantic-like wind and there appeared over their heads parted tongues of fire and they were filled with the Holy Spirit and they were transformed from fear into fearlessness.

1. R. They went out to preach the Gospel message and they were not afraid for they knew the love of God. To unite with love itself is to be absent of fear.

    Dear Holy Spirit, descend upon us and work in us to make us holy!

2. R. I look at myself, especially at the Consecration of the Mass, and I want to die to all those things that are not like Him, and to be more like Him. I know that I want to be holy, but it takes the action of the Holy Spirit working to sanctify me, to be more and more like Him.

Dear God, help us at every Mass to unite deeper with Jesus, in this offering to the Father, that we can die to the ways that are not like God. Holy Spirit, work within us to sanctify us more and more to be like Him.

3. R. They went out to preach the Gospel Message. Many were converted. They went from town to town. They were locked in prisons. They did not care. They got out singing for they knew the love of God. Give us this fearlessness in the world that has turned cold in many ways toward God. We are sorry the world uses the name of God in vain and does not treat You with the reverence that You deserve. Give us the courage to go out and to speak up for God and to act as You want us to act!

4. R. Help us to unite in such oneness with You that we are as St. Paul says

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.

R. Help us to live your life, death and resurrection in our lives. Thank you for this special sharing in Your life. Help our face to radiate the life within - this sharing in Your life within us. Help our actions and speech to be as you want. Help us to put on Christ in all of our actions, that we will preach the Gospel in all of our ways and help us to ask ourselves, would Christ act like this?

5. Hail Mary
6. Hail Mary
7. Hail Mary
8. Hail Mary

9. Jesus: Your answers are found within each moment. Take time to be alone with Me.

10. Jesus: My dear sweet one, I want to be so close to you. Open wide your heart and let Me enter into your hearts and join in the deepest intimacy with you. Surrender and let go, die to yourselves that you will live in Me. I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. It is in Me that you will have peace and joy in your hearts. As you are in your hearts, so shall you be in this world. You are the lights that I am sending into the dark night. Let your hearts be forever pure that your lights will shine the brightest light. I am Jesus, I am calling you to this close union with Me.

 

The Assumption of the Blessed Mother

R. Our Blessed Lady was taken into Heaven.

1. R. Mary is the Mother of our Christ-life. Mary is our spiritual Mother, given to us as Jesus died on the cross. It is in her heart that we are sanctified through the action of the Holy Spirit. Christ was formed in Mary's womb, through Power of the Holy Spirit. We go to Mary's Heart and the Holy Spirit sanctifies us more and more. Let us pray to the Holy Spirit to make us holy, that He works within the heart of Mary and brings us to greater holiness, that we may dwell deeper and deeper in the Heart of Jesus.

 


From Tell My People by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

The Holy Spirit

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in My likeness. He performs this marvel within Mary's Immaculate Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My own Heart. In both Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master. All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!"

Reflection: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with our Mother, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us.

end of excerpt

2. R. I see myself in the heart of Mary with the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit acts, working on me and I am united in deeper union in the Heart of Jesus, this endless cavern of Divine Love and the deeper I unite to Jesus in His Heart, the more I am united to the Father, for Jesus is one with the Father. We cannot even imagine what it is to be united in this deep union and know the Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwelling within our heart.

3. R. Let us go to the heart of our Mother and dwell there, that we may be united more and more to the Trinity.

4. Song: I am Your Sacred Heart

R. Mary is the Mother of our Christ-life. Mary places us deeper and deeper into Jesus' Heart and we unite with Jesus more and more. We unite with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

5. R. We receive Jesus in the Eucharist. He gives Himself to us. Jesus is one with the Father and the Holy Spirit. If we receive the Almighty God, who are we that we are given this great gift and that we take it so lightly? This is our little heaven on earth - dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

6. R. In the troubled world and in all of the things that press down on us in this world today, let us realize that the true treasure that we seek is within our hearts, so we dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. If we are in the state of grace, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, live within us. We need this time each day to be alone and to just be with God that loves us so much that He gives us a sharing in His life in baptism. When we go to Jesus, He gives to us knowledge of Himself and knowledge about ourselves. We will find our answers within these precious moments that we spend with Him.

Mary is Crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth

Revelation 12:1  Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.

1. R. Mary is the highest human person and she was chosen as the Mother of God. How many today blaspheme our beloved Mother? It is in giving her, our Mother, honor, that we realize how much God loves us, that He came into this world in the womb of Mary, a human person, that Mary became the Mother of God, that Mary was conceived without sin, that she conceived the Christ Child by the Power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spouse of Mary. We are to honor Mary. We realize how much God loves His creatures. Mary is the Mother of God and our Mother.

Luke 1: 35  The angel answered, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will cover you with its shadow. And so the child will be holy and will be called Son of God.

2. R. Jesus wants His Heart venerated next to the heart of His Mother - this is how He loves His Mother. How it offends Jesus when Mary is ridiculed and treated irreverently!

3. R. Mary wants us to make reparation to her Immaculate Heart for the blasphemies against her, against her as Mother of God, against her Immaculate Conception, against her as a Virgin. At every Communion let us tell Mary how much we love her.

4. R. At every Communion let us help make reparation to the Heart of Jesus for the injustices and the indifference to Him.

5. Hail Mary

6. R. Let us honor Mary and realize that in dwelling in Mary's heart that we will unite more and more to the Almighty God. It is in dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, Fr. Carter, said it is our little heaven on earth.

7. R. Let this be our greatest desire, to be united with the Almighty God forever and ever in heaven.

8. R. Let us go to the heart of Mary and unite deeper to the Almighty God.

9. R. Let us consecrate our hearts daily to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and turn our lives over to Them and ask the Holy Spirit to work within Mary's heart to make us holy, that we will carry His great love to this world.

10. Song: Eve Has Not Seen

R. Let us unite in one heart with the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Let us be in one mind and one heart in Jesus. Satan is division, he prowls this earth trying to trip us up. The Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph and the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign, when we consecrate our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, not in words spoken but in reality, we must consecrate ourselves and give our all to Jesus and Mary and beg the Holy Spirit to make us holy and spread these prayers and the Consecration to the Two Hearts to all.

Speak from Your Heart

R. We become one in Him. He lives in us in this world. He acts through us. We live to serve God do His work. This world is godless. Many today have turned their backs on God. Many times His name is used in vain and not spoken with the reverence He deserves.

    Jesus wants to dwell in our hearts. God communicates to us in our hearts. We go to the world and interact, but we go to our hearts to listen to His direction.

    If we spent days being in the world and do not take time to be alone with Him, we can get our answers from others and the world. We need time to sort out all the fragmented pieces we have collected in our lives and ask God's plan for us. God can communicate to us, also, through others, but we need time every day alone to listen to God. We need to spend time alone with God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit everyday. We need to hear the message what God uniquely wants to give to us about our life.

    Jesus says, "I am the vine, you are the branches." If the branches do not receive their nourishment from the vine, they wither and die. No two branches are the same, each one uniquely different. To bear fruit they must be nourished well.

    Our job is to spread the Kingdom of God - This is our calling, this takes knowing God's Plan for us. We can be busy and not do God's will and cause more confusion doing busy work. Do God's will. Pray to know it. Am I too busy to be alone with God?

    If I run down the wrong road at the fastest pace, if I spin my wheels in a rut, nothing is accomplished. When I am one with Him, He operates. His way is not speed, His way is precision. His way is right. His way is the way.

    When we do not go to God as our source we can be too busy doing the wrong thing. The devil is able to direct us to do things in haste. We must be rooted in God. The devil is paralyzing: his work is our mind. He fills us with pride, anger, envy, gluttony, and our starved souls can begin to wither. So as you are in your heart, you will be in this world.

    How can you speak from your heart when all you know is your own will? The mind must be in conjunction with the heart, the heart rooted in God. As a nurtured branch, a heart filled with His grace operates on His Plan.

    The mind, when the devil influences it, acts with vice many times: pride, anger, lust, gluttony, envy.

    The mind and the heart must be rooted in Him. We do not have a right to judge others, to make ourselves better than others. We have so many faults of our own. Spiritual directors and those in authority are to correct as God wants them to. We must stay rooted to the vine. We must have time alone with God. Our mind is to be united to God's Plan for us and we are to work for right reasoning, pray for right reasoning.

    We must have time with God to have a heart rooted in God - every day, time alone with God. Love is giving. We need peace in our homes - we need to consecrate ourselves and our homes to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart.

    I want to be with God before the tabernacle. Here at Immaculata Church I came in and saw Jesus again transfigured. I just wanted to be with God, to be alone and to be so one with Him. I am in awe of Him. I just love Him so much. I have been here three hours and I am so sad I only have one hour left. For the past three days I was unable to be here. I just long and want to know more about Him and be with Him and pray each word of each prayer so slowly and ponder it.

    I have had pains, especially in my left foot and my hands. My body aches and my knees feel as if I don't want to walk. I just want to love Him so much. I love Him - I love Him - I love Him.

 

January 17, 1996

Jesus Lives in Me

R. These wounds hurt our beloved Savior, when some betrayed their friendship with God to do evil. Jesus is our friend. Sometimes more than one treated Jesus with disrespect and criticism.

    To live Christ's life in our life, to live His death, to share in His sufferings, this is the greatest gift of all. We walk the walk, not knowing the great gift He is outpouring and allowing us to suffer to know Him more and share in His life.

    I know today what He gives me is to teach me lessons that I may be more like Him. The hardest thing, it seems to me, is to be mistreated by several friends.

    I show the world the Jesus that lives within. I want to be a light. People act according to how deeply united they are to God. All different levels. To be like Him we must die to all that is not like Him and beg for the grace to be made holy.

    I want to be like Jesus. To do this I must be willing to look at my faults, see my sins, my weaknesses, the way I am not like Him.

    I love God so much. The statue was transfigured and He had on different garments. I realized His humanity.

 

January 17, 1996

Take Time for God

R. There is so little love given this day. We can seek to receive and not give. We can seek others to fill us when only God can. Love is giving. Love takes time. God is the source of all love and so few have time to spend with Him and learn as He teaches the mysteries of His love.

    How can we love one another when we do not have time for God, who is love? We can be too busy to care, too busy to love, too busy to be Christ-like to others.

    We were created in the image and likeness of God, but are we acting like Him?

    Could we see Jesus talk about one another without love? Could we see Jesus rush by and not have time for anyone? Jesus came to give, He came to love, He came to serve.

    The world has made its end here and God speaks of the Kingdom to come. Open your hearts and you will know the mystery of His love.

 

January 20, 1996 - After Communion

A Letter for the Priests from Jesus

Jesus:  My beloved priests:

    I love you with the deepest love. Many of you are going through motions. Your hearts are cold and you have turned yourselves to the things of this world.

    I came to you with a kind and loving heart and I am rejected by My beloved chosen ones.

    I call you to love, to a deep love affair with Me. How My Heart bleeds for the indifference and coldness of many of My priests.

    I call you to love – to giving of yourselves, to consecration to My Heart and the heart of My Mother.

    I suffered so through My Passion, but My greatest agony was from the coldness and lack of love I received from My beloved priests.

    I beg you, My child, to speak to My priests, to speak to all who will listen about My burning love. I give to you great graces that you may deliver the messages of Our love for this world.

    I will shelter you in My Heart and lead you on your way to speak to the religious about the Mass.

    I call you to speak and to sing My songs of love.

    How I love you. I have chosen you. I am asking for your selflessness to respond to My request. Speak – I speak in you. Love, Jesus

      
  

January 21, 1996 - 6:00 a. m.

I am Rejected by Those Who Speak of Love

Jesus: How My Heart ached for the rejection of those I loved so dearly, some of My beloved priests and religious. I am espoused to them in a special way, and I am treated with such disrespect and irreverence by many of them. They wear the titles, "Father" and "Sister" and do not even come to Me.

    It is being loved by an unfaithful spouse. They are busy for their own self-gratification and have forgotten the great title I have bestowed on them.

    They do not see how favored they are by Me, the Almighty God. They seek their love from all other sources.

    How it offends My aching Heart! The thorns that surround My Heart pierced deeply because of the indifference of some of My beloved priests and sisters.

    It is through their love I give such love to My flock and the devil has led them astray. My flock is withering and dying in their hearts for many of My chief shepherds have gone astray.

    I beg, beg, beg you to speak to the priests and religious, to spread My Second Blue Book to all priests. Do not worry about the funds. My flock is dying from within. Their hearts have shriveled within their chest. They go through motions.

    Do the priests stand before the people and preach the love of God from their hearts or from their mouths?

    The love given to Me from My religious is so shallow. I am rejected entirely by many, yet they continue to administer the Sacraments and carry their titles. They do not realize the great honor that is given to them!

    You suffer the pains in My Heart for My beloved religious. The rejection, the busyness, the lack of love – how this offends My tender Heart.

    The religious are My chosen ones. I picked them and gave them My tenderest love. Some have hearts that have turned to ice.

    The priest is the key to spreading the messages of My burning love in the Church. Many speak without emotion for in their hearts they are dead. They do not fill their own hearts with the love of God. They try to fill their hearts with the world and speak about the love of God.

    I lament the lack of love from My chosen priests. The families come, the hungry souls come to be fed and many priests do not feed their hunger.

    I love, I love so deeply My beloved religious. I cry out to spread these messages of My burning love.

    They are going through motions. My beloved flock comes to My altar with cold hearts. Many priests are cold in their hearts. The world is cold in their heart. The families that go to church are not being fed with messages of My burning love.

    Mass after Mass, after Mass is said lacking emotion. Where are the hearts that empty themselves? Please circulate the messages about the Mass. When will the time be right?

    I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Unless the messages of My burning love are transmitted in the Church the bloodshed will continue. Your Church bears the marks of sin and suffering. My love, burning and on fire is the mighty medicine for the sick world and the Church. I beg you to circulate these messages on the Mass and the rosary. I am Jesus. My souls are hungry and begging to be fed.

    Pray for the priests as never before. Satan has waged a war against the priesthood. Priests and religious need to have a devotion to My Sacred Heart and My Mother's Immaculate Heart. Until hearts are consecrated to Our Hearts there will not be peace in the world. Consecrate your homes and your hearts to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. 

    I love with the deepest burning love. I want hearts that love Me with a deep, burning love. Come to Me and I will teach you about love. Go to the world and you will be taught the things of the world. The hearts of many of the members of My Church have turned cold. Give them the messages of My burning love! Little children need to know how I love them! What good is it for a man to run down a road that leads nowhere?

    I am the Way. I am the only way. Life is not life if it is not rooted in Me.    

 

January 21, 1996

Stiff-necked

R. I want to describe what I saw January 20, 1996 when He revealed the oneness at Mass. I saw stiff-necked people, all disconnected, like straight pillars and tears filled me for I experienced the fire of His love deep within my heart and what He wanted at the Mass and I can still cry today from it. I know "stiff-necked". I know oneness.

R. In this message I received January 20, and January 21, 1996, I received deep insight into oneness.

I knew suffering for lack of oneness with each other and with God at the Mass.

At a 4:00 p.m. Mass on Saturday, January 20, 1996, I was given a light and a vision of the depth of oneness God wants for His people at Mass. I cried so hard. They looked so stiff-necked in the pews.

The depth of unity God wants for the members of the body of Christ we do not comprehend.

He can envelope us with His grace and give us such a light we can see so clearly a little glimpse of the depth of God's love. We can experience in a small way what God means when He says "the fire of God's love."

We can be so blind we do not even know the great gifts God is giving to us in the Eucharist.

We may not even realize how important Baptism is and what a gift it is.

I received these messages January 20 and 21, 1996. I suffered so. I went to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center on a Sunday early on January 21, 1996 called by Our Lord and He gave me a vision and let me experience suffering for the lack of oneness in the world.

The light I was given concerning oneness is a part of the knowledge He has given to me to realize the importance of this mission to help lead men into oneness.

I was changed those two days from the knowledge given to me.

My heart suffers so for lack of oneness amongst men amongst people in the churches, people in the world.

I remember these dates always for He opened up to me the light of knowing oneness. Giving me insight into how He wants it.

I cried and my heart was in such anguish I cannot describe it for the lack of oneness between people in the Church and the world.

I write from my heart, as a mystic, as one that has been given deep insights into the Divine Mysteries. It seems impossible to even try to describe what I know and yet my precious Jesus has asked me this January 20, 2001, 5 years later, to describe this here. Pray for grace to comprehend more what I try to describe.

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.

Before the Tabernacle

Sorrowful Mysteries

Agony in the Garden

R. Be with Jesus as He knelt in the garden and feel the anguish within His Heart. We know how it is to love someone very deeply and those are the ones that hurt us the most. Sometimes by a word, sometimes by an action, but it is when we love someone very deeply that we are wounded the most by their lack of love, by their lack of care for us. We do not even understand the depth of the love of Jesus, how Jesus suffered in the garden for He loves each one of us so deeply and so individually.

    Look at the world today. How Jesus is treated with such disrespect, dishonor and forgotten many times. Jesus cries out from the tabernacle: "Tell them, tell them, tell them that I am the Almighty God and that I am truly present in the tabernacle, no less than the day that I knelt in the garden. Do they not hear? Will you carry this message to the world? I am Jesus and I am speaking to you. I cry out to you, My beloved ones, to spread the messages of My burning love to this world, to tell the world how I long and wait for them to be so close to Me."

1. Jesus: Come deep within the interior of yourselves and dwell within My Heart, within the heart of My Mother. Feel the security of the red room as you dwell within My beating Heart, as you feel the warmth and love that only God can outpour to you. This will be your refuge for the dark days that are ahead, for I am the Almighty God and the Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within you. In all of the turmoil and all of the suffering you will find refuge when you come and dwell within My Heart.

2. Song: A Song from Jesus

3. R. Jesus is God. Jesus is one with the Father. To dwell within Jesus' Heart is to be united to the Father, for to know Jesus is to know the Father and the Holy Spirit and to be one in Them, to know each Person of the Trinity, to know the presence of the Almighty God, to know oneness. When I go before the tabernacle and think of Jesus truly present in the Eucharist and focus on the Father and Holy Spirit, I am so full of love. I want to know the love of the Trinity. Go within the interior dwelling of Jesus' Heart and focus on His presence. Feel the heat, feel the red room, the cavern of His endless love, and in uniting to His love know the presence of the Father who is one with Jesus.

4. R. We go to the heart of our beloved Mother - it is her heart that is so pure, so holy, so united to the Heart of Jesus, for Mary dwells most perfectly in the Heart of Jesus. As we dwell in Mary's heart, we know the action of the Holy Spirit working in us to sanctify us and make us holy. We need God the Holy Spirit to help us be holy, we need God's grace. It is the action of God within us, His grace working within us, that sanctifies us and as we dwell in the heart of our Mother, we dwell deeply in the Heart of Jesus, the red cavern, the endless abyss of burning love which unites us with the Father. God wants our love. God wants His holy priests to be holy, to dwell in the Heart of Jesus, for all of us to dwell in the Heart of Jesus and to be one with each other as we partake in His holy love.

5. R. So minutely we understand the love of God. God is love. We cannot comprehend. We grow deeper and deeper in the mystery of God's love as He reveals more about His love to us. But, our understanding of His love is shallow. We penetrate His Heart deeper and deeper as we beg Him for His grace. Jesus makes known the mystery of His love to us. Let us comfort His Heart as He knelt in the garden and suffered such agony that His sweat became as drops of blood on the ground, the mental persecution, the knowing, the loving. Think of how it is when we are offended by those we love so deeply and how we go over it and over it in our mind, that our heart aches. Think of Jesus in the garden, such agony that His sweat became as drops of blood on the ground.

6. R. Jesus calls out to us for this love. Jesus calls out to us to consecrate our hearts to Jesus and Mary. Consecration is giving ourselves to Them. Love is giving of self. Jesus gives Himself to us. Jesus gave His all on the cross and He gives Himself in the Holy Eucharist. We are not a sponge that absorbs His love. This is a love relationship between Jesus and us. Jesus wants us to give ourselves more and more to Him. Jesus gives of Himself. We unite in a deep intimate union with Jesus. If we want love, the love that our soul craves, only the love of Jesus will satisfy this craving. But, it takes giving of self. The more we give of ourselves, the more we partake in this relationship with God in the intimacy of His burning love.

7. R. In the garden, how offended Jesus was by His priests and religious who do not love Him as they should. We are the Shepherds of Christ. We are being called by Jesus to pray for our beloved priests and religious, for it is hard in this world that has turned cold and godless. We need to pray with all our hearts for He has chosen them as His Shepherds, to spread His love to the flock.

8. R. Jesus has called us as His apostles, servants, handmaids, associates in the Shepherds of Christ, to spread His love into the world and Jesus is giving to us great graces to grow deeper in this union. As we become one in Him as we die to ourselves and unite to Him, we will unite deeper and deeper to Jesus. We are to die to all those things that are not like Jesus and grow deeper and deeper in our union with Him. Jesus wants to operate in this world that is suffering and in pain through us, if we give ourselves to Him. Let us unite with Jesus in the garden. Let us give our hearts to Him. Give Him our all, surrender our wills and join in this deep intimate love relationship with the Divine God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. No love affair on this earth can compare to an intimate love union with the Divine Almighty God who gives Himself to us and asks for us to give ourselves to Him.

9. Song: I Love You Jesus

R. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who knelt in the garden, is as present in this room in the Eucharist, as He was in the garden. If we were in the garden with Jesus would our hearts burn for love of Him? Let our hearts burn as we are here in this room with the same Jesus Christ who sweat blood in the Garden of Gethsemane.

10. Hail Mary

 

The Scourging at the Pillar

R. The place Jesus took me was the deepest recesses of His Heart. I was enveloped in His burning love. It was a red room with heat and an intense glow. I was swept away in His embrace and only existed in Him. The power of the Almighty God enveloped me and I only existed in Him. There was no fear for I existed in this Almighty Being. My heart was wrapped in the internal embrace of this Supreme Being. The security, the power I know was His deep presence in which I existed. I knew the room was red and warm. I knew His immenseness. I existed in Him. I did not feel little as a speck, but elevated and empowered for I existed in Him.

1. R. I was overtaken by the love of God. The fire of the Holy Spirit filled me. I was absorbed by the love of the Father and I existed in Him. In the deepest recesses of the Heart of Jesus so awesome His burning love, the inner chambers of His magnificent Heart, the Heart of the Almighty God. The Heart of Jesus is where He took me with all it's power, God is omnipotent. We know the fire of God's love. Jesus took me to the deepest chamber of His fiery Heart and in that moment I touched eternity for I knew what it was to be enveloped in the deep furnace of His love. I now want to exist in this chamber of His Heart, swept away in His burning love, absorbed in my every cell with His love.

2. R. Stand with Jesus at the Pillar. Be there and look at the rope around His hands and see the torn flesh and watch the look on the men's faces as they beat His back and His blood flies into the air.

3. R. God so loved this world that He sent His only begotten Son. After the sin of Adam, look at how man is treating God today. God the Father gave His Son and Jesus died on the cross for us. Jesus gives Himself - the Almighty God, born in the womb of a human person for love of us and He is forgotten and ignored. Jesus' name is used in vain by those He loved so dearly. Think of how it is to be hurt by those you love so much. Think of how Jesus feels when His name is used in vain by those He loves.

4. R. To see with eyes unveiled for we see this godless world and we see all that is in it. We must see the world with the eyes of Jesus. Do we hear Jesus' cries from the tabernacle? Jesus is truly present in His Divinity and humanity and in one second He can take our breath away and Mary says she is holding back the hand of her Son. We are called as Shepherds of Christ to go into this world and to spread the messages of His burning love. See Jesus at the pillar and see the wounds. I see the wound in His left arm so many times - so deep, that I cannot even describe this wound in His arm. This is one wound. Jesus' body was covered from head to toe with the wounds of His love - deep wounds. So too is His love for us, so deep - and He cries out and cries out and His cries fall on deaf ears for they did not listen to Jesus either. They put Jesus to death. How is the world today? Is the world listening to the messages of His love or have they turned a deaf ear? Are their eyes blind and their hearts cold when Jesus comes with a burning Heart filled with burning love to fill the stared soul?

5. Hail Mary

6. R. Jesus calls us to the deepest union with Him. This is what He wants with us this day. Jesus gives us: The 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 posses ... come and dwell in me now.

7. Jesus: I call you to surrender. I call you to love. I call you to open wide your heart and to let Me penetrate your very soul, for you are Mine and I love you with the deepest, burning love. It is in giving yourself that We will unite ever deeper in Our love.

8. R. The precious hands of God was covered with His own blood - the blood that He shed, that we could be saved if we love and serve God according to His will.

9. R. As Jesus walked from the pillar, the earth was marked by the bloody footprints. Jesus is the Savior of the World.

10. Song: A Song from Jesus

 

The Crowning with Thorns

R. How great was the act of love that God gave to this world when He gave Himself and died on the cross. Jesus 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. Jesus 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.

1. R. Be there as Jesus sits on the throne and they pound into His head a sharp crown of piercing thorns. How many pricks in His precious head!

2. R. See His hair matted with blood. This is the blood that He shed, that we would be with Him forever and ever in heaven and that we share in His Divine life this day. It is through His sufferings and death that we share in this life. Jesus wants us to share deeper and deeper in His life and in His love. This is the price that He paid.

3. Song: I Love You Jesus

Jesus: I love you. I love you. I love you. I have chosen you. I am giving you great graces to unite deeper and deeper in My love. Open wide your heart and let Me penetrate your soul with My Divine love.

4. R. Jesus' cries fall on deaf ears this day. The hearts of so many are filled with the world.

5. R. Are we not unfaithful to Him? Are we giving our hearts in love to Him?

6. R. 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 God 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 the most intimate union with Him to help us to love Him with the greatest love.

7. R. Jesus is a Person. Jesus wants our love. The Holy Spirit wants such intimacy with us. The Father wants us to love Him. In the Eucharist we unite with God. In this intimate act of uniting with our beloved God, we must pour out our love to God, we must pour out our hearts to the most adorable Heart of Jesus. Jesus is so unjustly treated by many of His beloved souls that 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.

8. R. Think of how it is when you love someone so much and you are offended by that person. Other things do not seem to matter. Think of how it is for Jesus. Jesus says, over and over again, His greatest agonies were not the wounds to His body, but those that He experienced to His Heart. He was buckled over in such suffering for the pains in His Heart, knowing in His Divine mind all those that He loved so dearly, so personally, that would reject and hate Him, from all time, He carried the sins of the world on His back. Jesus carried all the rejection of all people in His Heart and in this bitter anguish, He was comforted by the love of His precious souls that were faithful to Him, that gave Him great love. One soul giving Him great love is so pleasing to Him. Jesus says there are millions of hot-cold souls that are indifferent to Him. Jesus longs for that one soul to come and outpour his love to Him. Will you be that soul? That soul that comforted Jesus during His bitter passion? The soul that He longs and waits especially for?

Jesus: I am giving to you great graces in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to unite in deepest union with My burning Heart. Pray all through the day for these graces that you may know My love more and more, that you will feel satisfaction in your heart of knowing the love of God, for nothing fills the starved soul but the love of God.

9. R. And they spit on Jesus and they hollered at Him and He did not answer back. He sat silent and He suffered the ridicule, for He suffered for the love of His precious souls. It is in His suffering that we become sharers in His life. This is the price He paid. How do we realize this life? How do we value His love?

10. Hail Mary

 

Jesus Carries His Cross

R. See Jesus, His head crowned with thorns, covered with His own blood, His body wounded and in His heart He makes this promise to us: I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life. I will establish peace in their homes. I will bless every house in which a picture of My Heart shall be exposed and honored. I will console them in all their difficulties. I will be their refuge during life and especially at the hour of death. I will shed abundant blessings upon all their undertakings. Sinners shall find in My Heart a fountain and boundless ocean of mercy. Tepid souls shall become fervent. Fervent souls shall quickly mount to great perfection. I will give to priests the power of touching the most hardened hearts. Those who propagate this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be blotted out. I promise thee in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful love will grant to those who communicate on the first Friday of the month of nine consecutive months, the grace of final penitence. They shall not die in My displeasure nor without their sacraments. My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in their last moments.

1. R. Mary promises in the rosary that when we pray this rosary she will give us what we need. Mary is the Mediatrix of all grace. Mary promised that there will be peace in this world when we consecrate our hearts to her Heart and the Heart of her Son. Jesus promises peace in our hearts and peace in our homes when we have devotion to His Heart. Why do we not hear the words of Jesus and the promises of Jesus and Mary? Let us pray fervently for our priests that they will consecrate their hearts to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, that they will give themselves to these most adorable Hearts, to the Heart that carried such anguish all through the Passion, that had such agony far greater than any of the wounds to His precious body. Let us pray for the priests and the religious to consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

2. R. The peace or war of this world depends on this and our making reparation to their hearts in praying the rosary.

3. R. Look into the eyes of Jesus as Mary looked into Jesus' eyes on the way to Calvary. Do you see the beautiful eyes of Jesus filled with such love? Do you see the blood as it trickles down His face, His thoughts, always on us and love of us? Yet, we give Him such shallow love, love from our mouths. We hold back so much and Jesus loved us so much that He gave His all. Why do we not trust Jesus and consecrate our hearts, giving ourselves to Jesus and to the Heart of His Mother?

4. R. It is in the Heart of Mary, through the Holy Spirit, that we will be made holy, that we will be molded more and more into the image and likeness of Jesus, we need to be sanctified. We need to pray that the Holy Spirit works within the heart of Mary to sanctify us. Do we see His face covered with blood? This is the love that Jesus has for us.

5. R. The heavy cross dug into His precious wounded skin and His legs were so weak that He could not go on any further and Jesus fell to the ground with the cross on His back. This is the love that Jesus has for us.

6. R. It is in our deepest sufferings when we are carrying the cross that is the heaviest that we must turn to Jesus. We hold tight to Him and walk with Him and share in His life. He carried the cross, so too we share deeply in His life - the life of the Resurrection.

7. Jesus: Does your life seem bitter? Does the road seem hard? I am with you, My beloved ones, in the cross that you carry, you are living My life in your life and so, too, you will share in My life of resurrection if you remain fixed in Me. Carry your cross and know that it is given in great love from Me, your beloved Savior. One day you will know the glory of all of your sufferings, for you will unite with Me forever and ever in deepest union in My courts of heaven, if you live as God wants you to live.

8. R. I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever and ever . . .

9. Jesus: Carry your cross as I carried Mine and know that My Mother walks with you on your way, loving you. Mary is the most personal Mother, she cares for you more than any earthly Mother. My beloved ones, My Mother is forever by your side with such love.

10. Hail Mary

 

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

R. They raised Jesus high on the cross and He hung for three agonizing hours to His death.

1. R. Jesus gave Himself to us. I hear Him call out: I give you Myself, I give you Myself, what more do they want? Tell them, tell them - I give Myself to them this day and they run from My altar, tell them!

2. R. Jesus was the Lamb led to the slaughter. Jesus gave His all, the most pleasing act of love to the Father, the gift of His Son.

3. R. Let us live according to the Father's will in love and unite all we do to the Holy Sacrament of the Mass going on around the world, in the Holy Spirit with all the angels and saints and the souls in purgatory, through the powerful intercession of Mary in the Holy Spirit. We pray for the priests, the Church and the world. We want to put on Christ in this world.

4. R. Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the Sacrament of His greatest love. This is a prayer before Mass. I want to be one in Him in this act of love...unite in your gift of yourself to me, Come and possess my soul.

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.

                                               -Mass Book, December 27, 1995

5. R. As we unite with Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and we die to all those things that are not like Him and we unite to Him and we become more like Him. We go to the Eucharist and eat His Body and drink His Blood.

6. R. Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me, the Holy Spirit acts 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.

7. R. How great the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass when the Father looks down and He sees His Son one with the priest in the deepest way in this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We unite with Jesus in this offering to the Father and He sees us with such love. This is a great act of love.

8. R.  Let us realize the great gift of the Mass from the beginning of the Mass when we are sorry for our sins, to the Word when we are fed richly. We offer ourselves and hope that this sacrifice is pleasing to the Father and die to ourselves. We offer ourselves to the Father in the Holy Spirit. We are one with God. Let us give God the greatest love, the love that is His due. God is worthy of all our love. Let us unite with Him at this time and tell Him how we love Him and want to help make reparation for all the injustices and negligence against Him and against the heart of Mary. Who are we that God gives us the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Jesus gives us Himself.

9. R. Look at how the Mass is - do we appreciate the great gift that we are given? I ask you to pray fervently with me to help me to circulate these messages on the Mass, that many more will devoutly offer themselves in this sacrifice to the Father, united to Jesus, all through the day and at Mass and unite in deeper, deeper union with Him in the Holy Eucharist.

10. R. I ask you to pray with me. Mary is appearing before me. Mary is asking me to spread these rosaries, to pray with me to help me to circulate these rosaries and for you to help me. We must pray the rosary, to have peace in the world, Mary said at Fatima. Please pray with me to help me to circulate the messages of His love on the Mass, the Eucharist and the Rosary.

    Let us pray fervently to spread these messages, especially to the priests, to the religious, and to the children.

Consecration - Giving Oneself

R. Willfulness is not of God. Giving of self to God is not being willful and prideful. It is being a baby at the breast. It is trusting in Him and letting go to His will. Holiness is acquired by surrendering to your superiors, even if you do not understand or think they are not right sometimes, surrendering because God wants you to.

    Surrendering is giving yourself totally in obedience to your superiors – willingly – doing all you can to serve God and build His Kingdom. Holiness is acquired in our interaction with others, in listening to what they are telling us about ourselves.

    Wordy wisdom grows old if it is not displayed in the person's actions. To be like Christ, to live in Him, to talk in His ways, to die to self – I want to die to myself that I will live in Him.

    What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul? I can only live according to His will. I am not to do busy work opposing God's will. It is against God's will to be unloving – Love God, love others, love self. This must be my motivating compulsion. I give myself in an act of love to God.

    To give myself, to empty myself, I cannot hold onto self. The more I give myself, the more I love. I cannot hold onto my need to be right at all costs. I must give myself to Him and trust in Him, do the work of getting the job done.

    Selfish or Selfless

    Willful or Surrendering and trusting in God, yielding to superiors.

    Jesus gave Himself. He emptied Himself. He gave Himself to His death on the cross.

    The work is His to do. The ego is full of self, wanting to be right even when they are wrong, trying to show a mask to others. God knows our hearts. Only with His grace can I become more like Him. The way of the world is full of self.

    I gave myself to Him and He was able to more deeply unite to me. The glory of surrender – for in it is the bliss of serving God, preparing for our home in heaven, having the fullness of life some day in heaven. Preparing for heaven and in doing God's will now on earth, being like Jesus. Alleluia.

    Consecration: Consecration is giving myself to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I have surrendered my will as never before to my precious Jesus tonight and now I can more fully unite in the deepest, deepest love with Him.

    Love is giving of oneself for the sake of others. I give myself to you, my precious Lord! My life must be spent in an act of continually giving myself, more and more, to you, to dying to self that I can forever live in you.

    And He took me to the inner recesses of His Heart and I existed only IN Him for to unite to Him is to unite with love itself, love is giving of self. What does a man gain if He runs down the wrong road at a fast pace and it is the wrong road? Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. In Him we have life. His way is the way of love, love is giving, He opened His arms and gave Himself!

    To unite to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass all through the day is to unite in this greatest act of self-giving. I pray in this union. I can die to myself and live in Him.

    Disciplining my thoughts – developing right reasoning – I control my temptations to do evil. I do not give into willfulness, I do God's will first. I am not focused on myself and being right. Thinking, I knew more than my superior in this case. I must trust in God and listen to Him through my superior.

Total Consecration,

    I give myself totally to Mary and dwell entirely in her heart and pray for the action of the Holy Spirit, to work in me. I know the fire of God's love, works inside of her heart. I an enclosed entirely in her heart and I consecrate myself totally to the Holy Spirit. I give myself without reserve to Him and am one with the Holy Spirit.

    In this Mary places me deeper into the Heart of Jesus, united with all those present and in Him. I am placed in this deep, burning, red cavern of His love. It is there I penetrate so deeply the love of the Almighty God as I go deeper and deeper into Jesus' Heart. It is there, in this oneness with Him, surrounded by love itself, I feel the presence of the Almighty God. I feel the love of God, the oneness of God and I unite to the Father deeply, in this love of God. Jesus is one with the Father in the Holy Spirit. I am wrapped deeply in the love of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I dwell in Mary's Heart. I am embraced by love itself, deeply wrapped and united in Him. There are no cracks, there is this uniting with love itself that gives me such joy. I am one in Him. I give myself completely to Him.

    I surrender, give God my all and I dwell in Mary's heart. I have joy in God.

    I realize so deeply my desire to offer myself as a sacrifice to God. I pray through the intercession of Mary. I empty myself, wanting so much to give myself that it hurts because I am incapable of giving myself as I want.

    I realize His giving of Himself, seeing Him – His arms spread on the cross, His face bloodied, His head crowned with thorns, seeing now my greatest love, the Eucharist – this giving as He says: "This is My Body, This is My Blood."

    I unite to Him. I die to myself and give myself to God in the heart of Mary, and in giving myself to Jesus and Jesus giving Himself to me, I am more one with God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    This is the mystery of God's love in the Mass when God gives Himself to man and He communicates His great love to us – the interaction of Father, Son and Holy Spirit given through the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, our little heaven on earth.

    And He took me to the deepest recesses of His Heart and I was embraced by the love of the Almighty God and touched eternity.

Spread the Shepherds of Christ Movement

R. I went to the Sorrowful Mother before Mass and poured out my heart to her, united to Their Hearts. I was enclosed in the heart of Mary - total consecration to the Heart of Jesus dwelling in deepest union with Him in the red cavern and uniting to the Father.

    Recognizing my sinfulness, but through her sinless heart, dwelling deeply in His Sacred Heart, penetrating the depth of the cavern and union with God, the Father, connected with all the courts of heaven, through their intercession and all the souls in purgatory – begging with my whole heart to help me to do what They want me to do to spread the love of His Sacred Heart and Mary's Heart and the Shepherds of Christ Movement - to spread the rosaries and consecration to the priests, sisters and children.

    I realized my total dependency on Them and my incapability to do anything but with my whole heart I pleaded with Them. They are more alive to me than any person and God has all the power. I am enveloped in Their presence and Their love.

    The idea of giving myself, of emptying myself, is so important, united to Jesus' sacrifice on the cross, in the Mass I give myself to the Father in their Hearts.

    I plead from the cavern of His Heart, joined in this deep presence of God from my whole being: hearing and experiencing all the emotions of their Hearts, They have allowed me to experience, I am one in this union. They are my life - listening and strengthening me.

    I give You myself to do with as You will - You are the all powerful God. I surrender to You.

   

January 28, 1996

The Mass

R. I see the Mass all through the day, my heart burns from the Consecration, the great miracle that takes place. I see Jesus. I hear Him. I hear the words, "This is My Body", "This is My Blood."

    I see the priest as Jesus at the Consecration. I see Jesus in the priest at Mass. I want the words of the Consecration to linger, to adore Jesus. I hear Him say it and I see Him do it.

    Each priest should be so one with Jesus, they should celebrate the Mass as Jesus would do it. They should celebrate it as Jesus did at the Last Supper, knowing He was giving Himself for us.

    Jesus, the Son of God, gave Himself for our sins. the priest should celebrate the Mass and say each word as Jesus lives in Him.

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.

R. I love Jesus so much. I love the Holy Sacrifice. I want to think about its words and hear Jesus say it and unite myself in this great act of self-giving to the Father.

    This is my life - my life is total consecration, giving myself totally to God in union with the Mass. I love Jesus so much!

Total Consecration
    - is giving of oneself to God at the Consecration of the Mass. He gives Himself to us and we give ourselves to Him.
    - The Consecration of the Mass
    - The Consecration to Their Hearts - total giving, given mostly through the Mass.

    We live His life, death and Resurrection in our lives.

    God created us to love Him and love each other. If I live as a hermit, I am not living as He intended, if I am not one in my heart with His precious souls, even though I don't interact with them. Jesus calls me to love my brother as He loves in me. Jesus calls us to love the unloving. I help souls as He lives in me and I put on Christ.

Strongest words from Jesus:

    I gave Myself to them.
    I give Myself to them.
    Tell them, tell them.
    I will tell you everyday until you tell them.
    This is My Body.
    This is My Blood.
    I am Alive, I am Alive, I am Alive.
    I died for you - what more do you want?
    I watched you child –

R. Like swords that pierce my heart, I feel and hear these words.

Mary's words: My little children are going to hell.

R. Deepest love affair I can have is in Him.
Cannot have that deep, deep love if it is not in Him.
The more I am in Him and you are in Him, we are deep in our love with Him.
My love with you depends on how deep my love is with Him.

Capability to love is rooted in how deep I can love Him. He knows my heart.

My Specially Chosen Shepherds

R. I will take all those who need love into my heart and go to the heart of Mary and dwell entirely in her heart. I take all those I know who need special prayer to the heart of their Mother and she mothers their spiritual life and coaxes them to come home to the Heart of her Son.

        We will be one flock with one Shepherd. If all of us, the Shepherds of Christ, took our loved ones and those in need of special prayers, to the heart of Mary and gave them to her, she, the Immaculate Heart, would call them and lead them to the Heart of her Son.

        For we are not alone in this world. We are living in God's world. He gives to us a sharing in His Divine Life in Baptism. For those who have been given this sharing in His Divine Life and have cut themselves off from the source of life by sin, we bring them to their mother and we give them to her. She loves them as the tenderest mother and bids them to come home to Jesus. She will call them for us. It is up to us to bring them to her heart through our prayers. 

 

Jesus: Oh Shepherds of Christ, My chosen network of apostles spreading My love and the love of My mother to this world. It is in your consecration to Our Hearts that you have been granted special privileges from Me and My mother to be able to bring your loved ones to Our Hearts. We allow you to bring us the hearts that need deeply our love because you have given your hearts to us in a special way. Many of your beloved brothers and sisters have cut themselves off from the source of real life and Mary their mother will call them gently home to My Heart.

        Do not underestimate the power of your prayers when you are consecrated to Our Hearts.

        My movement, Shepherds of Christ, is a network of specially chosen souls that I  have given and am giving great graces to, to draw them into the deepest union with Me.

        All members of this movement are receiving these special graces to live in Our Hearts. I will live in them in a very special way in this world today. You must consecrate your hearts daily to Our Hearts. Live this consecration all through the day. Unite it with the Mass throughout the world. Give yourselves to the Father united in the greatest act of love, the giving of Myself to My Father. How pleased is the Father when you unite yourselves with My Sacrifice to Him.

        I want your total giving of yourselves to Me. It is in this giving of yourselves that you dwell ever more deeply in My Heart and I dwell in this world in you. Pray throughout the day the Prayer for Union with Jesus.

        Consecration is giving yourself to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

        It is in this consecration you will live dwelling entirely in Mary's heart and the Holy Spirit will sanctify you. He will mold you more into the God-like image the Father intended you to be.

        I am the way, the truth, and the life.

        It is in dwelling in the heart of Mary, her pure and sinless heart, that she takes you to the deepest part of My Heart, the deep red cavern of My burning love. It is in this deep penetration that you unite deeply to My heavenly Father.

        Oh beloved, the Mass, lived in your daily lives, the union of your hearts with the Consecration of the Mass, God giving Himself to you and you giving yourself to Him in this most intimate act of love between God and man, how this Sacrifice pleases the Father. The more you give yourself to God the deeper this relationship becomes. Die to yourselves as I died on the cross that you will live in Me in all your actions.

        I am Jesus. I call for total consecration of your hearts, My specially chosen Shepherds. Come and dwell in the heart of Mary and give yourself as a sacrifice to God. A sacrifice is an offering. Offer all your joys, sorrows and love to Him.

R. Oh Hearts of Jesus and Mary, let us see more and more that dwelling in your Hearts is truly our heaven on earth. It is in giving ourselves to God that we will know more and more His rapturous love.

        ...And He took me to the deepest chambers of His Heart and in that embrace I knew the presence of the Almighty God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I was enveloped by love itself and I knew no fear, I was one, in Him and I could feel the heat of His love.

Jesus: This is rapture. I want this deep love with you, My chosen Shepherds that you may dwell forever in this fiery furnace of My endless love. It is in giving yourselves you will be bathed by My Divine Love. In this union you will know the Father's Love. The Holy Spirit will permeate your being with the active fire of God's love. Love is action from the heart, come and dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and live in celestial bliss.

R. ...And He took me to the deepest recesses of His Heart and I touched eternity... the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, our little heaven on Earth.

Jesus: Come to the Heart of My Mother and she will lead you home.

Prayer

        Oh Mary, Immaculate, take me to your Heart, that I may dwell there. I give myself to you.

        Oh Heart of Jesus, I give you myself, TAKE ME, ALL OF ME, all my faults, all of my strong points, all of my joys and sorrows, bathe me in your love and let me unite in deepest love to God.

        Holy Spirit, actively work on me in the Heart of my beloved Mother. Permeate my being with the fire of God's love, that I am sanctified and changed more into the image of my beloved Jesus.

        Father, I unite myself to the sacrifice of your Son being offered in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world. I give myself, united to Jesus, to You. I love You, I love You, I love You, my precious God.

The Sacrifice - Give Ourselves

R. I realized in the Mass, the Sacrifice. I am to be one in this sacrifice united to Jesus. I am coming to offer myself, listen to the words, come to the table.

    Jesus gives us Himself. If you love someone you will do anything for them – you give them your all. Jesus loves us so much He gives His life for us. God became man for us.

    Jesus gives Himself to us at every Mass. I give myself - I sacrifice and offer myself. Look at the table, hold nothing back. Then unite in the deepest union with Him in the Eucharist.

Jesus: I am the Bread of Life.

Wednesday, Our Lady of the Woods
Before the Tabernacle

Glorious Mysteries

The Resurrection

R. The Pascal Mystery, Death/Resurrection

    Jesus gave His all. He spread His arms and He gave His all and He calls us to love each other as He has loved us. In this act of giving, He shows us that He gave to His death on the cross. He came to show us the way to love. Jesus died to bring us new life. We want to focus on our baptism - sharing in His life in us.

1. R. Jesus calls us to die to all those things that are not like Him. At the Consecration of the Mass, when the priest raises up the host, I hear Him say: This is My Body. I hear the song, "This is My Body ... Given up for you."

2. R. Love is giving and Jesus gave His all. Jesus spread His arms and gave His all. Jesus died on the cross that we could share in His life and in the Resurrection. Jesus gives us a sharing in His life in baptism.

3. R. Jesus sets the exiles free. Jesus gives to us a sharing in His Divine Life in baptism. At the cross, Blood and water poured from His pierced Heart. Water, a symbol of Baptism; Blood, a symbol of the Eucharist. Baptism - whereby we become sharers in His Divine Life and the Eucharist, whereby that life is fed with His own Body and Blood. Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist. Jesus loved us that He gave Himself.

4. Song: Take and Eat

5. R. Death has no power over Jesus and on the third day He rose from the dead.

6. R. In baptism we receive a sharing in His life and God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell in the graced baptized soul. We read His Word, the Holy Scriptures, our hearts burn within us for this is our love for God. The two disciples on the way to Emmaus said, "When he spoke the Scriptures, were not our hearts burning within us." As we grow deeper and deeper in this life, our hearts will burn within us when we hear the Word of God.

7. R. Jesus died on the cross. We die to the ways not like Jesus at Mass. We give ourselves to Him and we die to all those things that are not like Him and we ask the Holy Spirit to come and to work in us in the heart of Mary that we will be more and more like our Beloved Jesus. The Mass is so beautiful for it is there that we offer ourselves as a sacrifice - not a sacrifice that we are given hard things all the time, it is the offering of ourselves to the Father united to Jesus, in the Holy Spirit. We pray to do God's will in love.

Pray: This is my offering Father. Whatever You want I give myself to You. In my joys and in my sorrows, I give You myself with all my love.

8. R. Jesus gives Himself to us. This intimate relationship between me and Jesus depends on how intimately I give myself to Jesus. The more I give of myself, the more fully I will know God's love more deeply.

9. Song: I Love You Jesus

10. Song: God's Love

 

Ascension of Our Lord into Heaven

R. Before He ascended into heaven, Jesus gave to the apostles the power to baptize and to forgive sins. Think of our priest this day - the great honor it is to be a priest. The gift God gives at the Consecration of the Mass when bread is changed into the Body of Christ and wine is changed into His Blood! Let us pray fervently for our priest, for this is such a great honor. When the priest is full of love for Jesus, when he sees the great role he has been called to, the priest will be more and more like Jesus. We want to see Jesus in the priest at Mass. We pray that priests give good example as holy priests, so young men all over will answer the call if Jesus is calling them to priesthood.

1. R. As we go to Mass and we see with eyes unveiled, the great gift, as it unfolds before us, let us pray fervently for our beloved priests.

2. R. Jesus ascended into Heaven but He left behind the apostles to carry out His work. Let us see Jesus at the Consecration of the Mass, for the Father looks down and He sees His Son. The host is changed into the Body of Christ and the wine is changed into His Blood, this is a precious moment. The priest is such a gift to us and the Father sees this and is so pleased. In this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass let us unite with the priest and offer ourselves and all that we do to God and surrender to the will of the Father for we know how much God loves us. The Father sent His only begotten Son into this world that we would be able to share in His life. Jesus gave Himself as a sacrifice on the cross and rose the 3rd day victorious.

3. R. How blessed are we that we can go to Mass. The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present and it goes on all over the world. We can unite with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in all of our actions all through the day. Everything that we do we do as an offering to the Father, united to Jesus, in the Holy Spirit in the Mass. The most pleasing act of love to the Father is the love of His Son.

4. R. How great was the act of love God gave to this world when Jesus gave Himself and died on the cross. Jesus 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 command! If we are to enter into 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 the act of loving God. The reason for our existence is to love God. Jesus gives Himself to us in the Eucharist. This is the Sacrament of His greatest love. We are called to respond by giving ourselves in love to Him.

5. Song: Take and Eat

6. Hail Mary

7. R. Jesus is the Bread of Life and He gives Himself to us in the Eucharist.

8. R. Jesus ascended into Heaven but He remains with us this day and He is truly present in the Eucharist as the day He walked this earth and Jesus is in this room with us at this moment in His Divinity and humanity. Many times the churches are empty when Jesus is in the tabernacle.

    Let us fervently consecrate our hearts to Jesus, give ourselves to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and give to Him our greatest love for we are hungry and He will feed us with what our starving souls crave - His Divine Love.

9. Song: Jesus We Adore You

10. Hail Mary

 

The Descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and Mary

R. They were afraid and they locked themselves in the upper room and there was a gigantic-like wind. There appeared over their heads parted tongues of fire. They were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in foreign tongues, as He prompted them to.

1. R. We see the apostles before the Descent of the Holy Spirit. They were filled with fear. We see them after the Resurrection. They had not understood the words of Jesus, they did not really know what would happen. We see Peter. Peter denied Jesus, but we see the apostles after the Descent of the Holy Spirit and they go out to preach. They did not care who was first. They were filled with the fire of God's love. They were selfless and they went into the world. Their whole mission was to carry this exuberant love within them to the world.

2. R. Holy Spirit, we ask You to come, descend upon us and work inside of us, fill us with the fire of God's love and transform us more and more into the image and likeness of Jesus.

3. R. Jesus took me to the inner recesses of His Heart and He enveloped me in His deep burning love and I was united to the Father, to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. For, the deeper that I penetrate the Heart of Jesus, the more I unite with the Father, for He is one with Him. Oh, Heart of Jesus, help us to love God more and more through Your deep and burning Heart.

4. R. I give myself to the heart of Mary, to her pure and sinless heart and in that heart the Holy Spirit is active as He works with the fire of God's love, transforming us more and more to this image of Jesus. Mary places us deeper in the Heart of her Son in which we unite to the Father. We feel the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in our graced baptized soul. To be enveloped by the presence of the Almighty God - it is beyond all words. Dwelling in Their Hearts is our little heaven on earth. It is there that we unite more deeply to the Almighty God.

5. Song: Come Holy Spirit

6. R. It is in giving ourselves to the heart of Mary, that we will be placed by Mary, deeper and deeper into the Heart of her Beloved Son.

7. Consecration cards for children

      

8. R. Die to yourself at the Consecration of the Mass and be enveloped in the heart of Mary and the Holy Spirit will work within you. Mary and the Holy Spirit are there to help us to be more and more like Jesus. Do you feel this at the Mass as you surrender yourself? Do you see the Sacrifice, the Holy Sacrifice, the table and the offering and that it is up to us to unite and to give ourselves that we may share more fully in His deep and burning love?

9. R. Holy Spirit, we give ourselves to You. Fill us with Your gifts. Give us Your light that we may know more and more about our Beloved God, for it is You that fills us with Your Divine Wisdom. With Your grace we partake and know more and more into the mystery of God's love.

10. Hail Mary

 

Assumption of Our Blessed Lady into Heaven

Acts 1: 9-11

     As he said this he was lifted up while they looked on, and a cloud took him from their sight. They were still staring into the sky as he went, when suddenly two men in white were standing beside them, and they said, ‘Why are you Galileans standing here looking into the sky? This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven will come back in the same way as you have seen him go to heaven.’

R. Jesus ascended into Heaven. We, hopefully, too someday will be in heaven. What is Heaven like? What will it be like? It will be knowing the presence of the Almighty God, to be enveloped by love itself, it is a presence of Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the beatific vision in heaven for all eternity. Relationship with God. It begins in a special way after Communion at the Mass. Let us thank God for the great gift that He gives to us, the gift of Himself.

1. R. Jesus took me to the deepest recesses of His Heart and it was there I was enveloped by the love of the Almighty God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

2. Song: I Am Your Sacred Heart

3. R. Mary said at Fatima, "Until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, there will not be peace in this world." Let us give ourselves to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Fr. Carter says dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary is our little Heaven on earth.

4. R. Jesus showed us love. Jesus mounted the cross and Jesus gave Himself. This is the price Jesus paid that we would share in His Divine Life.

5. R. Mary has appeared to me so many times and she calls out for the children that will be lost and will lose their souls. We must consecrate our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Jesus has promised that as Shepherds of Christ members, He is giving to us great graces to join ever closer in our union with Him as we consecrate our heart to Their Hearts. We can give our heart to Mary and she will take us to the Heart of her Son.

6. Jesus: My dear beloved ones, bring your loved ones to the heart of My Mother and she will take them to My Heart. I am giving to you great graces as members of Shepherds of Christ, great graces to unite ever deeper to My Heart. In your consecration, your prayers are heard. Pray with all your heart and your prayers will be heard.

7. R. Oh, Mother of God, I give my heart to you. I beg that I may dwell in your motherly heart and as I dwell in your heart, you take me to the Heart of your Son, Jesus.

8. R. Oh, beloved Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You.

9. R. In all of the troubles that are in our lives, let us go to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. This is our little Heaven on earth. Take all of our family and all of those situations that we have no control over, to her heart and she will place them deeply in the Heart of her Son.

10. Hail Mary

 

Mary is Crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth

1. R. The peace of the world is entrusted to her. Mary appeared at Fatima and she said, "until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we will not have peace in this world." Consecration means total giving of ourselves to Their Hearts. We have been called to the Shepherds of Christ Movement as special Shepherd Members to go out into this world and to spread Their love. It is through our consecration to Their Hearts that we unite in such oneness with God. God dwells in us and ministers to many in this world. We have been called Shepherds of Christ and given great graces to carry out this mission. It is in dwelling in Their Hearts that we will unite to the Almighty God. This is our little Heaven on earth.

2. Jesus: No person is too busy to spend time alone with Me each day. I am calling you to this union. My special Shepherds of Christ, I am calling you to the deepest union with My Heart. Surrender and let go and I will care for you and all of your needs. Each day you must consecrate your heart to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Surrender in the Mass. Give yourselves that you may grow in holiness and unite in deepest union with God in the Holy Eucharist. I am Jesus. Many are called but few  are chosen. You are My special chosen ones that I am sending into this world to spread the devotion to My Heart and My Mother's heart. Come to Our Hearts and live in Us.

3. Song: I Am the Bread of Life

4. Song: Eye Has Not Seen

5. R. Let us partake more fully in His Divine Life that we may see more and more each day all through the Mass. Let us pray to the Holy Spirit that we will see the great gift as it unfolds before our eyes and that we offer ourselves as a Sacrifice with Jesus and unite to this all through the day, thereby making our prayers so magnified and putting all our cares in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Bring all your beloved ones to Their Hearts and go about your lives loving as He intends us to love.

6. Hail Mary
7. Hail Mary
8. Hail Mary

9. Song: I Will Raise you Up on the Last Day

R. Our union for all eternity depends on the union we have with Him now. Let us beg Him for the graces that we may unite ever deeper to Him for we will be satisfied if we go to Heaven. Our life forever depends on how we are now. Let us pray for these graces fervently to go to heaven and consecrate our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

    Dear Sacred Heart of Jesus, I give myself to You. Take me, use me, whatever You will. I see You dying on the cross. I know this is the love You have for me.

    Dear heart of Mary, I give myself to you. my heavenly Mother, Mother of my spiritual life, take me into your heart as you carried the Child Jesus within your womb, as you cared for Him and loved Him, care and love me and all my needs. This is my prayer - to be ever united deeper and deeper in my love for the Almighty God. I give myself to you.

10. From the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual

Act of consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary

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!

Dear Blessed Virgin Mary, I consecrate myself to your maternal and Immaculate Heart, this Heart which is symbol of your life of love. You are the Mother of my Savior. You are also my Mother. You love me with a most special love as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, a movement created by your Son as a powerful instrument for the renewal of the Church and the world. In a return of love, I give myself entirely to your motherly love and protection. You followed Jesus perfectly. You are His first and perfect disciple. Teach me to imitate you in the putting on of Christ. Be my motherly intercessor so that, through your Immaculate Heart, I may be guided to an ever closer union with the pierced Heart of Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.

Sing: I Am Your Sacred Heart

Sing: I Love You Jesus

My Heart's Desire

R. My whole desire is to be here in prayer with My beloved, to love Him and know Him, but He calls me to serve Him and do His will.

    My heart cries for the joy to be with Him here in Holy Cross-Immaculata, my favorite place, to meet Him and be with Him. I love My love so much. The pains in my feet, not very bad, remind me of how close He truly is.

    Oh my God, I just want these moments to linger when I am alone with you here. I want them to never end.

    I thought I would die today of my great desire to be with Him. I love Him so much. It is so painful to wait to go to heaven. I love Him so much, I want to know Him, more and more and more. The things of this world do not matter to me as much for my whole desire is to be one in Him.

    I love You, God, with all my - my whole being - I empty myself out to You. I want You - You alone, deep in me, so deep, one in Thee, to be united in endless love.

    Love is loving someone, is loving what God wants for them. There are problems in life. Always see your hearts in Jesus and Mary' Hearts. Spiritual attacks happen when people need to work together. We must fight these. Pray for grace.

    There is such oneness with those closest to us in doing this work, that any division is unbearable so we must surrender and work together for Jesus, because we love them.

    Whatever the problem it doesn't compare to the amount of love we have for them and separation is misery because it is as though you cut off yourself. We fight to try to resolve differences for love of Jesus, instead of fighting to be right.

    This is giving when I love someone deeply. My heart is so joined to Their Hearts. To be separate from Jesus is to hurt my own heart.

    To have any division with someone I deeply love is like dividing myself and I cannot have peace and be divided. I must pray and act as God wants.

    My love with Jesus and Mary is connected with those I deeply love. Our hearts are joined in Their Hearts.

    I cannot be separate from some person and be united to Jesus and Mary. There is no division in the Heart of Jesus. My greatest love with any person is centered in the Mass. This is unconditional love that I lay down my life for my friend. Every time I love more deeply, according to God's will, it is rooted in God. I want to grow to have a heart like Jesus. The devil hates love among brothers, doing God's work.

    My love with others grows as I love someone or a few special persons very deeply. God sends these special persons in our lives to teach us about deep spiritual love. In deep spiritual love we share knowledge of God from deep within our hearts. This unites us to Him.

    Any division on my part with someone I deeply love causes me lack of peace. I must always be rooted in love and what God wants, when I differ with a person. I have peace when I am doing God's will in love.

Obey Authority

R. In today's world men and women are considered equals. Jesus is espoused to the Church and Mary is Mother of the Church. The roles given to men and women are different.

    The role of husband and wife as stated by Jesus: wives should be submissive to their husbands.

Obedience is underplayed. The devil works hard on children to get them to disobey. If children do not learn obedience, they will not obey the will of God.

    The idea of authority has been underplayed. People have authority. Those who are subject to a certain authority must respect it.

    How can we obey God if we do not obey authority?

    The first sin of Adam had to do with obeying authority: Eve wanted to be equal. The first sin was a woman wanting to be equal to God. Many women want to be equal to men. Christ said "Wives, be subject to your husbands, as you should in the Lord." Colossians 3: 18

R. Sisters should be Sisters. God gives the priesthood to men. The priest reads the Gospel, he represents Christ - it is the Word of God!

    Freedom is doing the will of God. I am free when I am dependent on the Father as a little child. This gives me freedom - I am free from attachments and dependent on God for all my needs.

 

February 2, 1996

What Is Love?

R. I do not know what love is. What does love mean?

Jesus: Love is not the word. I am the source of love, I am the Almighty God. Respond in love to others with love in your heart, rooted in Me.

    The more one realizes the love God has for them, the more they give to others. To focus on the self to find the way to love, is to lose the source of love - and the source is found in God.

    Do you see Me in others being loving? To focus on the self is to be met at a dead-end, a stone wall. The self is not the source of love, the prime source is the Almighty God.

    The more you focus on yourself (Rita), the more of Rita you get. You must focus on God and let Him act from you.

R. Many times the devil tricks us by talking in our heads and getting us to focus on ourselves, by playing our faults and deficiencies before our eyes. I have wasted precious time when I know Jesus is longing for my love.

 

February 3, 1996 - First Saturday - Mid Morning

Lost in His Wounds

R. I cried so hard, I was so connected to His crucified body. It was as if I was there and comforting Him and kissing His blood-stained cheek. I have a great love for the crucified Lord. I love His crucifix – I kiss His crucifix and love His wounds! I feel deeply His wound on His left arm, open so wide. I see the depth and the whole insides of My precious God.

    This morning I was deeply lost in the wounds of Jesus, kissing His crowned head and crying in my very being for I feel so deeply His suffering and His rejection. I felt totally gone to this world and when I went to Mass later I was so connected to Him on the cross, at the Consecration. I was totally out of it in this experience, kissing the cross and being with Him and His wounds. I felt as if I was truly there with the wounded Lord, comforting Him, when I kissed His blood-stained cheek. I have been experiencing sharp pains in my left foot, and both my hands hurt sometimes. I kept getting these pains in the left foot where I guess the nails were driven into His foot. (Sunday I had the pains with chills and I had pains in my hands and feet, on and off, since Thursday of last week.) I would not be writing this but my body has hurt all over for two days. I feel as if I have been left to myself and He is so far from me. Thursday when I got up I felt so bad all over, I just didn't want to move and then John called up about going to St. Dominic's and I forced myself to put all the tapes and books in the car. I was going to Immaculata to pray before John called – I felt so bad and had to be with Jesus.

    My body just feels like I don't want to move. I have had such anguish and feeling so rejected and alone. My body just aches all over. On January 13th I could hardly move my legs. I felt so as if I couldn't stand or go up or down the steps. My body hurt but my legs hurt so badly. I have suffered the greatest feelings of rejection and pains all day and my body just hurts.

    He took me to His Passion and I kissed His wounds and His blood-covered cheeks, being filled with an awareness of His great love. I was so engrossed in His sufferings. I begged to share with Him, my whole body hurt, to feel in my heart the rejection and the pain.

    On Thursday morning I was overtaken by sadness and my body ached. For two days I suffered deeply feeling rejected and my heart ached. I was looking for an explanation for my sufferings. He said to me on Friday, "To focus on self is to be met at a dead-end – a stone wall – the self is not the source of love, it is the Almighty God." "The devil has tricked you into focusing on self by playing your faults and deficiencies before your eyes. You have wasted precious time when I am longing for your love."

    I asked for suffering that I might identify and comfort Him. He gave me suffering and I tried to explain it to myself. My pain was hard and cold. He gave me the sweet cup of suffering to identify with Him and I met the dead end by focusing on myself!

    It is in all our joys and all our sufferings, when united to Him, that our burdens are light. It is in walking with Him in the pain that we share in His pain and identify with Him to be closer to Him in deeper love. The pain, the suffering, is living in Him. It reaches a dead end in the self. We can identify our every breath with His or we can wallow in the pain and walk the hard journey for ourselves.

    It is the walk with Him that is the easy way. He carried the cross and fell, but His Heart was fixed on His Father and His love. My every pain and suffering must be identified with Him.

 

February 4, 1996

I Must Be Holy

R. I give my all, my all, my all. I give Him His work, so I give myself to the Spirit - and let the Spirit move in me.

    If He wants me to be holy and get the job done, He has to make me more holy so I can do His work. I will do a better job the more I am one in Him. To be one in Him I must be holy. Jesus, I pray please make me holy to work more united to You.

    Take me, Use me, Live in me, Make me like You!

    I give You - everything I possess – everything!

 

February 4, 1996

Relationship: the Key

R. Not enough is written about Faith: We must have faith as a mustard seed and then we can say to the mountain, "move", and it will.

    I see God and know His great love for His creation. If we study the lives of Jesus and Mary, we see how the Father loved Mary. In understanding God's love for Mary we understand more God's love for His human creatures.

Relationships: The Key

    There is not love if there is not relationships. It is in realizing we are all one body in Christ, that we must be joined in one mind and one heart.

    I thirst for the knowledge about God. I beg the Holy Spirit to live in me and permeate me with His wisdom and His love, His knowledge, His gifts. God is alive!

Excerpt from Response to God's Love by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

... 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.

R. The Mysteries of the rosary are so important because they tell the relationship between the lives of Jesus and Mary. Love - relationship. We must study the relationship between the highest human person, Mary and the Divine Person, Jesus: see the interaction between Jesus and Mary, between His Heart and hers in the mysteries of the rosary.

    We pray for insight into God's love in the mysteries of the rosary when Mary's heart unites to her Son. To comprehend love, there must be connection.

    Perfect love – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – Perfect communication.

    We focus, too, on the love of the Two Hearts. I know deeply the love between Jesus and Mary. I know this love of the Two Hearts. Love is union

Song: His Presence Pervades My Soul

R. On December 15, 1995 I had a deep realization of the love of the Trinity. I knew God's love: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Also, I knew the love of Mary in deep oneness with God. I knew God's burning love. I felt no fear in God's embrace. The love of God filling me and the oneness of Mary is such an awesomeness of God's precious love.

        Excerpt from Blue Book 9 - December 18, 1995 - In the Deepest Recesses of His Heart

R. I was overtaken by the love of God. The fire of the Holy Spirit filled me. I was absorbed by the love of the Father, and I existed IN Him and in the deepest recesses of the Heart of Jesus. Our heaven on earth is these inner chambers of His magnificent Heart - the Heart of the Almighty God, with all the power, with omnipotence, with the fire of the love of God. He took me to the deepest chamber of this fiery Heart, and in that moment, I touched eternity, for I knew what it was to be enveloped in the deep furnace of His love. I now want to exist in this chamber of His Heart, swept away in His burning love, absorbed in my every cell with His love. . . .

    Little creatures though we are, we are His, His power, His life, flowing through us. In Him, we are as the Father intended: one in Him, each one of us, dwelling in this fiery furnace of His love. With our fears quieted and our hearts empowered by His life, we live forever in Him - in the Heart of Jesus.

end of excerpt

R. I see Mary and Jesus and Their love for me, feel action permeating my being. I know Jesus loves me and I connect with all others. The Source of love is in God: interaction between people not rooted in Him seems very shallow. We can unite deeply with others in love depending on their deep love of God. If a person is not very united to God - our relationship can be much more shallow.

O Mary, I have known you, Mary, under the cross. I know you, Mary, the Mother of God. God, to give His Son.
    I know Jesus. Mary, so silently stands by. Sweetly she is always there, leading us to her Son.
 

Luke 1: 46-55

And Mary said:

My soul proclaims
    the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
    in God my Saviour;
because he has looked upon
    the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
    all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty
    has done great things for me.
Holy is his name,
and his faithful love extends age after age
    to those who fear him.
He has used the power of his arm,
he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes
    from their thrones
        and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things,
    sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help
    of Israel his servant,
        mindful of his faithful love
—according to the promise
    he made to our ancestors—
of his mercy to Abraham
    and to his descendants for ever.

 

The Seven Sorrows of Mary

  (1) The prophecy of Simeon.

  (2) The flight into Egypt.

  (3) The loss of the Child Jesus in the temple.

  (4) Jesus and Mary meet on the way to the cross.

  (5) Jesus dies on the cross.

  (6) Jesus is taken down from the cross and laid in Mary's arms.

  (7) The burial of Jesus.


R.
Mary is the sweetest Mother. I know Mary's maternal love. I feel Mary's love. Love is interaction. Jesus died for me.

    Church - interaction - so much emphasis - focus on the real love between Jesus and Mary and I am taught about Their love, the love of the Two Hearts. I am taught to love God.

    I am taught of Their most powerful love for me (Caught in this embracing love of God. Mary is the Singular Vessel, the gateway to Trinitarian love).

Before the Tabernacle
Our Lady of the Woods
 
Joyful Mysteries

The Annunciation

R. Love is interaction as we meditate on the mysteries of the rosary. Let us see the love that exists between Jesus and Mary. Jesus is a Divine Person and He loved His Mother with the deepest love. Mary is the highest human person.

1. R. Love is relationship. Love is a relationship between persons. The angel appeared to the Virgin Mary and Mary said "yes", she conceived the Child Jesus within her womb through the power of the Holy Spirit. This is how God loved the world, that He gave His only Son.

2. R. Look at the relationship between God and us. Look at love, it is relationship. Looking at the relationship between Jesus and Mary I will understand more fully the relationship between God and me. You see the love between Jesus and Mary. I look at all the mysteries of the rosaries. The Child Jesus was conceived within Mary's womb. The two Hearts were beating within the body of Mary. Such intimacy, that God comes into this world in the womb of a human person. The Two Hearts beat within one body. This is the love that God has for His creatures - that He became man.

3. R. At Fatima, Mary appeared many times. Jesus told Lucia that He wanted His Heart to be venerated next to the heart of His Mother. If we venerate the Heart of Jesus and the Heart of Mary together, we see this relationship, this action between the Two Hearts. As I look at the mysteries of the rosary, especially the mysteries where Jesus and Mary are together, I see this love.

    Think of Mary under the cross. Think of the cross by itself and think of Mary under the cross. I see the love there when the two are there. Think of the baby within the womb of Mary. There is a special relationship between Jesus and Mary. Think of Mary as she holds Jesus within her arms as a child. Think of Mary as she holds Jesus in her arms under the cross. I see this relationship between the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and I know more profoundly the meaning of love.

4. R. The little body of Jesus was formed within the womb of His Mother, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

5. R. We had a mother for our life here, our physical mother. Mary is the Mother of our spiritual life. As we dwell in the heart of our Mother, we too are formed in her Heart more and more to the image and likeness of Jesus, through the action of the Holy Spirit. Think of the Child Jesus being formed in the womb of Mary and think of us dwelling within the heart of Mary and in this action the Spirit permeates our whole being as we are sanctified and transformed more and more into the image of Jesus.

6. Song: O Holy, Holy Dwelling Place of God

7. R. Mary has called this rosary to honor her, to comfort her heart for the hatred that is shown to her this day by so many - against her Motherhood. Mary is the Mother of the Almighty God. Let us honor her in our hearts and love her. That God the Father, chose her from all women and made her the Mother of God!

8. R. Mary is blasphemed in her Immaculate Conception. We must realize that in order for God to come to this earth in Mary's womb, to enter this world, Jesus must come in purity. Mary was conceived without sin. God comes in the Immaculate womb of the Virgin Mary. Let us honor her in her Immaculate Conception.

9. R. Mary is blasphemed in her virginity. Mary is the spouse of the Holy Spirit. Let us honor her in her virginity.

10. Hail Mary

 

The Visitation

R. Mary said "yes" to the angel. Jesus enters this world. He gives Himself as a sacrifice and He died on the cross. Let us thank God for the great gift that He gives to us.

1. R. God first loved us. He created us to know, love and serve Him. God is Divine and we are human. God gives us a sharing in His life in baptism. Let us beg Him to give us His grace that we may know, love and serve Him more.

2. R. Mary always complied to the will of the Father. We will have peace and joy in our lives if our whole lives are centered on doing the Father's will. Mary is our model. Mary shows us how to live. Let us meditate on these mysteries of the rosary. Watch our beloved Mother that we may be closer and closer to God.

3. R. Mary carried the Child Jesus within her womb. The Almighty God humbled Himself so much that He allowed Himself to be carried in the womb of a human person. This is the love that God has for us. The Almighty God, all powerful and Almighty - that He came in the womb of a human person and He was carried by His Mother to her cousin Elizabeth.

4. R. Mary brought to Elizabeth the good news. Mary carried Jesus in her womb. Jesus is our Savior. When we are baptized and remain in the state of grace, God dwells in us in a special way: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

5. Jesus: How tenderly I love you, My Beloved ones. I came to this earth and gave Myself to you. How I am ignored and forgotten by so many today. Look at Me as I hung on the cross. See My five wounds and meditate on My wounds. It is in meditating on these wounds that you will know My love for you. I am Jesus, I love you with the tenderest love. You do not even realize minutely the love that I have for you. In your hearts you are sorrowing for the lack of love in your life, and I come to you with a kind and generous Heart and give Myself to you. You search and search and I am here in this room with you. I long and thirst for your love. Come to Me and let Me fill you with My Divine Love. I love you with the tenderest Heart on fire for love of you.

6. Mary: You do not know what it is to be loved. Think of yourself, look at yourself, see yourself with all of your faults. See yourself with all of your history and tell Jesus everything about yourself. He is a lover that loves unconditionally with love that is burning.

7. Jesus: I gave Myself to you, My Beloved ones. I give Myself to you this day in the Holy Eucharist. I come into your body, no less present than the day Mary carried Me in her womb. This is the love that I have for you. You do not ponder this love and think of this love that I have. Ask for forgiveness for your sins - I give to you confession. I forgive your sins in confession. I look at you and I love you as you are, with all your faults and all of your shortcomings. I love you. Say to yourself, "Jesus loves me. Jesus loves me!"

8. Jesus: I love you always - when you are good; when you are bad. I am there and I know every thought in your mind, every feeling in your heart, far better than you yourself know. You cannot hide anything from Me. I know all your motives, everything that you do.

    I love you. I love you, My Beloved ones with the deepest, tenderest love. I give Myself to you in the Holy Eucharist and I wait and long for you to give yourself to Me. Realize that I love you, that you do not have to protect yourself from Me, that My love is there for you at every moment. Trust Me. I came to this earth a little baby because I loved you so much.

9. R. Mary went to see her cousin Elizabeth and she cried out the "Magnificat"

Song: My Soul Rejoices in God, My Savior

10. Jesus: Are you tired? Are you scared? Are you hungry? Do you feel that no one loves you? Do you feel that you have not accomplished enough? These thoughts, My dear ones, come to you from the evil one. I tell you of My love and you do not hear the words that I speak to you. I am ever attentive to you. By your side, I guard you as you sleep and as you walk, as you breathe and as your heart beats. I am forever with you, but you do not hear. You hear the words in your head that you have not done enough, that you are not good enough, and I tell you over and over again in the quietness of your heart - I am here and I shed My blood and died for you. But you do not hear the words, you can hear the words of condemnation from satan in your heads. You must not give in to these thoughts. You must learn to discern the spirits for the evil one is working in your mind. Pray to the Holy Spirit to fill you with the fire of God's love, to be one in the Spirit, that it is the good Spirit that works within your heart, within your soul. Turn off the thoughts that you hear that are negative and destructive and take this time to tell Me of your love. I am waiting for the words from your lips, "Jesus, I love You so!"

 

The Birth of Our Lord

Song: A Song from Jesus

1. R. Love is relationship; love is interaction between persons. Jesus comes and gives Himself to us, He wants this love affair - a personal love affair with us, and that He is our best friend. Think of someone saying to you, "you are my best friend, you are my love." This is what Jesus says. Do you see Him in the stable in Bethlehem, a little baby born in such poverty? The Almighty Son of God came to the earth and is wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a manger. We balk and where do we go for our love?

    Mary wants us to pray the rosary, to meditate on the lives of Jesus and Mary, for it is there that we see the love given to us from the Almighty God and it is only this love that fills the starved soul.

2. Jesus: Are you hungry? Look, My dear ones, at the scene at Bethlehem. See My Mother as she held Me in her arms. She tenderly wants to hold you in her arms and lead you ever closer to My burning love. I am alive. I am alive. I am alive. I am a Person and I love you.

3. Song: O, Little Town of Bethlehem

R. Jesus was in the crib in Bethlehem, a little baby so sweet. We do not see Jesus. He is present in this stillness. He is there and He says to us: "By name, I have called you, by name, I have called you, by name I have called you, My dear precious ones." Do we hear in the stillness the sweet tender voice of Jesus as He calls us to be so close to Him? He comes as a baby, a little baby, for He wants our love.

4. R. Jesus did not come as a Mighty King. Jesus did not come adorned in gold and silver, Jesus came as a little helpless baby. Jesus wants us to come to Him. Jesus opened Himself, Jesus spread His arms wide on the cross, and gave Himself to us - the blood in His body, His wounds were open wide, the interior of His body showing. The nails went through His hands and His feet. Jesus gave His whole body to us and we do not realize, yet, how much He loved us.

Jesus: Ponder My wounds, My dear ones, ponder deeply these wounds, for I suffered for love of you. The blood that I shed was the blood that I gave that you could have life forever and ever. This day I give to you, My body and My blood, in the Holy Eucharist. I am alive this day and I give Myself to you. You come to Me and join in the deepest intimate love with Me. Greatest love, My dear ones, I give to you Myself in the Holy Eucharist.

Song: A Song from Jesus

5. R. Through the tears of our beloved Mother, I pray to Jesus, I pray to You, Father, that our hearts may be transformed more and more through the action of the Holy Spirit to be filled with the fire of God's love. Help us relate in loving relationships, more and more to God and others.

    Little child Jesus, we offer ourselves to You. You came as a little, humble child. We give ourselves to You and ask that we may be filled with the fire of God's love.

6. Song: O, Holy Mary, Holy Mother of God

7. R. St. Joseph, help us to be led deeper and deeper into the contemplative life.

8. R. Let us know more fully the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit within our baptized soul.

9. R. Jesus was held in the arms of His Mother at birth and Jesus was held in the arms of Mary under the cross. This is the love that Jesus and Mary have for us. It is in dwelling in Their Hearts that we will know more and more the love of the Trinity.

10. Hail Mary

 

The Presentation in the Temple

R. The Father gave His Son. Jesus came to this earth in the womb of the Virgin Mary. God gives to us His love. Jesus was carried in the womb of Mary. The Almighty God is carried inside of Mary's womb, a human person. Jesus was born in a stable in such poverty. Jesus was taken to the Temple to be presented to the Father. Jesus is God. Jesus humbled Himself and He came to this earth as a little baby, for love of us.

1. Song: See the Eyes That Look at Mary

2. R. Jesus is our Savior, Jesus came a little baby - a little babe, Jesus is the Almighty God!

3. R. The old man, Simeon, the prophet, told Joseph and Mary of the sufferings to come.

4. R. "And a sword too shall pierce your heart, Oh Mary", and how her heart was pierced with a sword!

Song: Little Baby Hands and Feet

5. R. The world shows us all the hearts on Valentine's Day, the hearts that are so beautiful and red. Jesus and Mary appear with Hearts that are surrounded by thorns. Love is giving. When we give ourselves in love we make ourselves vulnerable and we are hurt many times. We see Jesus - how He gave. We see His Heart surrounded with thorns and the cross above it and we know that God loves us so much. God loves us more then any man can. Jesus loved us and how He suffered!

6. R. Love is not as the world tells us - the world tells us that we should be satisfied, that we should be filled. Jesus comes and shows us the real way to love.

7. R. The more we give ourselves in love, the more we see how there is suffering, for to give ourselves makes us vulnerable. But we look at Jesus and we see Him all through the Passion as He is the Almighty God. He is whipped. Jesus is crowned with thorns, Jesus falls, Jesus is hung on a cross. He shows us the real meaning of love, for God is love and love is giving. Jesus calls us to this love, to give ourselves and when we give ourselves in real love in this relationship with Him, modeling our lives after the way He loved, there are hurts many times and we too wear the thorns and the cross over our heart.

8. R. "A sword, too, shall pierced your heart, Oh Mary", and from that moment on Mary knew, whenever she looked at her child, of the sufferings to come. There was such intimacy between the child Jesus and Mary, for He, in His Divine knowing, knew of the sufferings to come and she knew of the sufferings to come. They carried within Their Hearts, the knowledge of these sufferings, and "a sword too shall pierced your heart, Oh Mary." We see her as she holds the child Jesus in her arms and we see her as she holds His lifeless body under the cross. Why, if we follow Him, do we think that our life should be a life of ease? Jesus shows us the way, but Jesus fills our hearts with burning, Divine Love. Nothing on the face of this earth compares to Jesus' love. We walk the walk behind Jesus as He carried the cross, but our hearts are filled with deep and burning love, for we know Him in our heart.

9. R. Love is interaction. If we study the relationship in the mysteries of the rosary between Jesus and Mary, we see love in action. This is the greatest love. We see Their eyes as They peered into one another's on the way to Calvary. We see Mary stand under the cross and we hear the words of Simeon that say, "A sword, too, shall pierce your heart, Oh Mary", but her heart is filled with such love for it dwells within the Heart of her Son so deeply and she knows His love. If we dwell in the heart of Mary, we too will deeply know His Divine Love.

10. Song: I rocked Him as a Baby, I held Him as a Child

R. Let us look at Jesus through the eyes of Mary, as Mary looked at Him on the way to Calvary and see His face, covered with blood, and His head crowned with thorns, for it is through her eyes, through her heart, that we will know His immense love. "A sword, too, shall pierce your heart, Oh Mary". Many times, as we follow the path that Jesus walked, a sword too will pierce our hearts but He says to us:

Jesus: I know far better than you all the sufferings within your heart. I know every pain and every thought. I am so close to you but you look so many places for the love and companionship that you seek and I am Jesus Christ, the Almighty God, your best friend. I know when you are scorned, I know when you are forgotten, I know when you are lonely and I know when you are cold. I know how you wake in the middle of the night and there is a cold chill in your heart. I know everything about you. I am watching you. I watch you as you sleep. I watch you as you play. I watch you when you're scared and I watch you when you do not know which way to turn. You do not talk to Me and I am the Almighty God that knows all things. I know from whence you came and where you shall go. I know what you will do tomorrow and what you did yesterday. You walk the road alone and your heart is filled with a chill. I am Jesus, come to Me, for I have all that you need. I am guarding you, My Beloved ones. I love you with the deepest love.

 

Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple

R. Jesus was taken to the Temple when He was 12 years old for the Feast of the Passover.

1. R. He was lost and when Mary realized that Jesus was not with them, her heart was filled with such sorrow.

2. R. As Mary went in search of the Child Jesus, she is in search of so many of her children this day, that are lost, and she has asked us over and over again to be the lights that shine in this dark world, to lead those that are lost back home to her heart and the Heart of her Son.

3. Song: Hosea

Jesus: I know every thought, I know far better than you all of your motives. You cannot hide anything from Me. I knew you before you were conceived in your mother's womb and I know where you will go and I pursue you as an ardent lover. You do not hear Me alive in your heart!

4. Jesus: I am alive, I am alive, I am alive. I am calling out to you for such intimacy with you, My beloved ones. I am in this room, the same as the day that I walked this earth. How many thoughts have you had of My presence with you, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament, the same as the day I walked the earth? You are My apostles that I am calling. Pray for the grace to unite ever deeper to My Heart. I love you with the deepest love and I am giving you abundant graces to join ever closer to My Heart. I am Jesus, on fire for love of you. I am alive, I am alive, I am alive. I am a Person. I beg you to read My love letters - every letter, and to focus on the words of love that I write to you. Read every word slowly. Hear Me as I tell you how dearly I love you.

5. Jesus: I live in this world in you. How will others know of My love if you do not come and let Me operate in you? I want to be so close to you. I see your heart, I see your heart has been hurt and crushed. Surrender to Me, put aside all the walls that you have erected around your heart, and be a heart like Mine.

6. Song: Little Child

7. Song: Teach Me to Love with Your Heart

8. Jesus: Do not judge your brothers or you will be judged. You cannot have division in your heart and unite to Me. Satan plants thoughts in your mind to divide you and your brothers. Put aside all thoughts of division and do not judge.

R. Oh Jesus, give me a heart like Yours - a heart that will unite - that we will all become one body, that we will all love as we dwell in Your Heart and Mary's heart so we will know what true love is: The love that You show us when thoughts of division come into our mind. Help us to be able to turn these thoughts over to you and to tell you of our love.

Jesus: I call you, My beloved ones, to be holy. I call you to not judge. Do not talk about one another, this will divide you from Me. You must be holy as the saints were holy. I call you to love. Love is kind, love is tender, love unites, love does not divide. The devil plants in your minds thoughts of division. When you divide with one another, you divide from Me. I am love. To unite to Me you must love each other. Do not give into thoughts to judge one another. Only a heart of love will unite with My Heart.

Song: A Song from Jesus

Jesus: I am a Person and I want to love you deeply. You must come to Me with a heart that is filled with love to unite deeply with My Heart. Any thoughts of division divide you from this union with Me, for I am love.

9. Jesus: Many of My beloved ones are lost this day. How is your tongue? Is your tongue holy to receive Me? Are you the lights that shine in the dark night? Do you not see My Heart, crowned with thorns and adorned with a cross? To love is to suffer, but many will come to know Me through your efforts. You should love as I love through you. Love this hurting world that is suffering and in pain. Your hearts must be filled with love for love unites, love does not divide. I am giving to you great graces that you will be able to distinguish the good Spirit from the evil spirit: the good Spirit fills you with peace and love. Thoughts of division against each other, causes you to be disunited to Me. I am love, I am the Almighty God and I give to you My Body. It is when you are united in one heart and one mind that you will live in peace. Do you want peace or division? You must follow My path - My path is the way of love.

10. Jesus: These are the joyful mysteries. If you want joy in your hearts, you must live in the Father's will. What is His will for you at this moment? What is His will for you the next moment? Every moment, you live to do the Father's will, with love, for you will be judged on how you complied to His will, with love. I call you to love and I give you My Heart, burning and on fire for love of you. I know your every thought. You cannot hide from Me. Are you afraid? Are you cold? Are you hungry? Come to Me and tell Me your every care, for I want to share with you all the thoughts of your heart and give you My comforting love.

    My little child, how I love you. How I care for you and you do not even notice that I am so close to you. How this wounds My aching Heart. I am Jesus. I whisper to you again: I love you, I love you, I love you. Come and be lost in My Heart.

 

February 6, 1996

Tuesday at Our Lady of the Woods
A Shepherds of Christ Meeting
Before the Tabernacle

Sorrowful Mysteries

The Agony of Our Lord in the Garden

R. Let us put ourselves in the Heart of the Virgin Mary and know we are in her heart. Christ was carried within the womb of Mary, let us place ourselves in her heart. Let us know the permeating grace of the Holy Spirit as He works on us, as He transforms us more and more into the image of Our Savior. Let us know this action of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit is alive within us and with this we grow deeper in our holiness. We are plunged into the deepest recesses of the Heart of Jesus, in this deep tunnel of His Heart, the deepest recesses, feeling His burning love. See around us the endless red cavern of the Heart of Jesus as we feel this permeating action of the Holy Spirit and the love of our Mother. We unite in deepest union with our Father, for Jesus is one with the Father, Our beloved Father who created us and loves us. Let us feel as we are within the heart of Mary, within the Heart of Jesus, united with the Father in the permeating action of the Holy Spirit.

    Let us be united and know the presence of God which enfolds around us. It feels as if we are penetrated by a force that we cannot explain. This is the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit united to the Virgin Mary in us. We will be wrapped in the embrace of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit for all eternity, having the endless love of the Almighty God, to have no fear, to exist in Him, only in Him. We will know and experience perfect trust, perfect fullness, perfect satisfaction in heaven for we will be united to the Almighty God. Let us keep with us this vision as we pray this rosary and unite ever closer to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, our little heaven on earth. It is in this security of Their Hearts that we can withstand the trials of this life. For to know the presence of God within us that the Almighty God dwells within us when we are baptized and in the state of grace, we know that God, the Almighty God is with us. Wow! Wow! We should know only love and not fear having the presence of God in us.

    Let us focus on this vision when we are attacked, when we are in trouble, when things go wrong, when the wind comes and the rain beats down. Let us go to the interior dwelling of our hearts and feel the presence of the Almighty God. For God lives within us. This is our little heaven on earth - to dwell within the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, in the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Jesus is giving to us great graces to grow ever deeper in this union. If we cooperate with these graces, if we surrender and let go, we will unite in such union with Him. The greatest saints knew this. Beg for this grace to know God's presence with us. We have been called and we have been chosen to this movement by the Almighty God. It is a calling. We have been hand-picked. It is in growing in this union that we will be the lights that will shine in this darkened world, for God has called and we have been chosen. Let us beg now for the grace to unite in deeper union as we meditate on these Sorrowful Mysteries of Jesus' life and Mary's life.

1. R. I go to the inner recesses of Jesus' Heart and there I am united to the all-powerful God. Dear Holy Spirit, permeate my being, open up my mind and my heart and give me greater knowledge of You, of the Almighty God, for we long and thirst to know more of Thee.

2. R. My soul is thirsting for You, O Lord, My God.

3. R. Jesus comes with His Heart surrounded with thorns and a cross on the top. Jesus knew suffering! In the garden He was in the deepest pain. For Jesus felt the rejection of those He loved so dearly. All through the Passion Jesus gave Himself. The Son of God came to this earth and took on a human body and in the garden Jesus saw all the men from all time that would reject Him and treat Him with such hatred, would use His name in vain, would curse Him, would deny Him - and He comes and He gives Himself and at the same time in His giving He knew, in His Divine knowing, all of the rejection and hatred against Him. Think of how it is to give love and to be scorned at the same time by those you loved.

4. R. Do you love deeply and know what it is to be hurt by someone that you love? Jesus loves with the most perfect love. Jesus gave His all, Jesus spread His arms and Jesus gave every drop of His Blood. Jesus' body was battered and covered with wounds. Jesus' head, covered with thorns. Jesus gave love and look at how Jesus is treated today by those He gave His life for.

5. R. Jesus' anguish was so great. With all the love in His Heart, His Divine love. Jesus gave Himself. Jesus knew hatred, the anger, the sins of all men. In the fact Jesus gave and knew such scorn, His anguish was so great. The pain so tremendous that His sweat became as great drops of blood upon the ground.

6. Jesus: Do you know what it is to be scorned, My beloved ones, by those that you love? Do you know what it is to love, to love, to give, to give Yourself, to die on a cross for love, and to be forgotten and neglected? To be treated with such indifference and such hatred! I come to you with a kind and gentle Heart. My Heart burning for love of you and look at how I am treated this day. I call out to you, My faithful servants, to come and to worship and adore Me. I am waiting for your love. Will you give your love to Me? Will you comfort My aching Heart for all those that have forgotten and treat Me so neglectfully? I am Jesus, your beloved Savior. I am God. I love you with the deepest love and I wait for you to share your love with Me.

7. R. Buckled over with pain - the pain was so tremendous in His heart. Do we even know a little bit what it is to suffer great pains in the heart?

8. R. How do you think you would feel - how badly would we feel that we would sweat blood?

9. R. Let us identify with all the suffering that we have this day with You. Identify our struggles and our trials, with Jesus' trials and suffering. Take the rejection that we feel in our life by those that we love and take it to Jesus and meditate on the rejection that Jesus felt in the garden because of so many souls that would reject Jesus and Jesus loved them so dearly. Let us identify with Jesus in all aspects of our life that we may carry out His life, death and resurrection in our lives. As we identify in our sufferings with Jesus, we are brought to greater life in Him. I suffer the rejection and think of myself - it goes nowhere. If I suffer the rejection and think of Jesus, and how Jesus sweat blood, the pain, I know more the pain of His Heart. Jesus was rejected by those He loved, I am moved to love for those that are hurting me. Let me live Your life in my life.

10. A Prayer to Jesus with Regard to Identifying with His Suffering

My beloved Jesus, I identify this trial and my struggles, my little struggles with You, with Your trials and sufferings. They compare little to how You suffered for me and all men. This rejection I feel is nothing compared to the men that You loved who beat You and tore Your flesh. Oh beautiful Jesus, scourged for my sins, my selfishness. Take my life, Jesus, You are my Spouse and I love You so much. I long for Your sweet love and the embrace of Your tender touch upon my soul. I dwell most deeply in the burning cavern of Your Heart and am one with God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Oh my God, how great indeed You are. All Powerful God, Almighty God, Omnipotent God – I LOVE YOU!!

 

The Scourging at the Pillar

R. They seized Him and they led Him away as a common criminal and they tied our beloved Jesus to the pillar to be whipped.

1. R. In His Divine knowing He knew everything that was about to happen and He complied to all of this treatment. Jesus did the will of the Father. Knowing full well all of the beatings, all of the wounds He would suffer, knowing the anger and hatred in their hearts, knowing those souls that would be lost despite all of His suffering, Jesus withstood all of this for love of me.

2. R. So personal is the love of Jesus that He would have been scourged at the pillar for me.

3. R. Do we know what it is when someone loves us and would go through this suffering for us?

4. Jesus: I was whipped and I was scourged, My beloved ones for love of you. Do you see Me covered with blood and see the wounds deep within My arms - the wounds deep in My back and My face, all over My body/ They are wounds that I suffered for your sins, for the sins of all men.

5. Jesus: I forgive you all of your offenses when you come to Me and ask for forgiveness and I love you unconditionally. Do you love yourself? Do you truly love the person that the Father has created? Do you realize that you are so loved that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within you, in your graced baptized soul? I am Jesus and I am calling you to love yourselves for I love you with the deepest love.

6. Jesus: It is in realizing My love for you that you will give My love to others.

7. Spirit Song: Jesus, O Jesus come and fill your lambs

8. Jesus: Love is giving. Love, My dear ones, is sacrifice. When you love you are open to suffering, for love gives as I gave.

9. Jesus: I gave My love and I was scorned and treated with such hatred by those I loved.

10. R. Let the action of the Holy Spirit work within us and permeate our being, that we may feel more and more as we meditate on the mysteries of His Passion, the burning Fire of God's love.

 

The Crowning with Thorns

R. See the head of Jesus, see the head with His beautiful brown hair, see His face covered with wounds, blood on His cheek and the men clothed Him in a dirty purple robe and throw Him on a would-be throne, and pound into His precious head a crown of sharp thorns.

1. R. We cry out to our Mother, "Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of they womb, Jesus."

    Why are we so blind that we do not see? Why do our hearts feel so empty and look so hard for something to fill our starved souls? What is wrong with us that we do not see that God is truly alive and with us - that He lives in our hearts, that He is truly present in this room. The same Jesus that sat on a mock throne and was crowned with thorns? Let our hearts burn with the Fire of God's love for He truly gave Himself for love of us.

2. R. Dear Holy Spirit, my best friend, let us feel Your action within us as we meditate on how we dwell within the heart of Mary and within the deep cavern of Jesus' Heart and unite to our Father. Let us feel the permeating action of the Holy Spirit and feel this red cavern. Surround us that we may know more fully what the presence of God feels like.

3. R. How could God, Jesus, withstand all of this? How could the martyrs withstand what they withstood? Jesus knew the Father's love. To have this presence of God within our hearts - to know God - to know His love, we can withstand all suffering. We can withstand all trials. Look at Jesus as He walks through His Passion, as He carries His cross and as He hangs on the cross, Jesus is in total peace. Help us to know more and more the love of these Two Hearts as we dwell within Them at every moment.

4. Song: I am Your Sacred Heart

R. Jesus promises that He will be with us forever more. Why are we filled with such fear in our hearts when God is truly here and He is alive?

5. R. See His head crowned with bloody thorns. See the blood run down His face. See His eyes blurred with the blood and it runs into His ears. How many times do we think that no one loves us and Jesus says, "I love you, I love you, I love you. I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I am a Person who wants to have a relationship with you." Divinity unites with humanity.

6. R. I feel the presence of God. Do I know that God is really here? These are not words that are spoken, but more real than those things that I see - the presence of the Almighty God. Let us pray for faith to see beyond what our eyes see and to know God more and more.

7. R. Dear Holy Spirit, open up our eyes. Where we are blind, let us see.

8. R. Fill our hearts with the fire of God's love. Let us know that His love is truly burning. These are not words that are spoken but God is calling out for us to open our hearts and know love as we have never experienced it before. To know His Divine love, that we will dwell in the deepest cavern of His Heart and unite with the Father and the Holy Spirit in a way as never before.

9. R. The most perfect love is the love that is communicated between the Persons of the Trinity. Let us be engulfed in the center of this love. Let us be surrounded. Let us touch love itself.

10. Jesus: Do not be afraid to love, My beloved ones. You comprehend so minutely My love. Open your heart and I will fill you with grace that you will understand more and more the immensity of My love. My love is endless. My love is beyond all comprehension Surrender to Me and I will lead you to the deepest recesses of My Heart where you will be engulfed by the love of the Almighty God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Come to the heart of My Mother and dwell in My Heart. This is the gateway to the love of the Trinity.

 

The Carrying of the Cross

R. Jesus took me to the deepest recesses of His Heart and it was there that I was enveloped by Jesus' endless love and there was not fear, for to unite with love itself is beyond all words. O, Heart of Jesus, take me. I surrender myself to You. I give myself to You. Engulf me in the love of the Almighty God.

1. R. Jesus stood there and was surrounded by those He loved and they did not give to Him words of love, but they cried out in hard, angry voices: Crucify Him, Crucify Him. These were the ones He came and gave Himself for. As He was giving, He was scorned by those He loved.

2. R. The cross that they put on His back was so heavy that His chin hit the ground. Look up into the eyes of Jesus and see the look in His eyes. It is not the look of hate or anger, it is the look of gentleness, love and suffering. Deep suffering in His heart to be rejected and hurt by those He loved.

3. R. Love is interaction. We see the love between Jesus and Mary. Jesus, a Divine Person; Mary, a human person. We see Them as Their eyes meet. All through the mysteries of the rosary, if we meditate on the love between Jesus and Mary, we will grow deeper and deeper in our love relationship with Him.

4. R. If we could see Jesus alone we can relate to Him, but if we see Jesus, His eyes peering into His Mother's, if we see Jesus hanging on the cross and His Mother beneath the cross, if we see Jesus as an infant in the arms of His Mother, if we see Jesus' lifeless body in the arms of His Mother under the cross, we see the love between the Two Hearts and know more how God truly loves a human person. Let us meditate on the love between Jesus and Mary.

5. R. God so loved this world that He gave His only begotten Son. Jesus loved us so much that He gave Himself. When we look at Jesus and Mary together, we see that there is such great love between Divinity and humanity. If we are caught in this love between these two Hearts we will grow deeper and deeper in our love with God.

6. R. We see the eyes of Mary look into the eyes of her Son. We see Mary as she stood under the cross. We know that all through His Passion, Mary was there and meditating on the presence of God and the love between her and Jesus, we feel so much more their love that they gave for us.

7. R. O, Heart of Mary, you know the love of your Son. You know how He was scorned and treated with such disrespect this day. You know how He is calling out to His creatures and how He is ignored, how He is treated with disrespect and is offended. Jesus, God was treated this way! Jesus is treated this way by His creatures. Mary comes, our heavenly Mother, and she tells us how God is so offended by His creatures today and many do not listen. She says that she cannot hold back the hand of her Son much longer. She has ceased talking to us in the rosary after almost two years. This should tell us how urgent the situation is, that we must pray with all our hearts.

8. R. Jesus is calling us as His special Shepherds of Christ to unite in this very, very deep union with Him. As we unite in this deep union, our intercessory prayer is so much greater. Our prayers are so important to this world. Our union with Him is so important to this world.

    I see Him with His beautiful face, crowned with thorns and covered with blood, and His chin on the ground and His tender eyes look at me and I see the Son of God and He says: 'I Love you, My beloved Shepherds. I love you with the deepest love. I am sending you into this world armed in your hearts with My deepest burning love. Open wide and let Me fill you with this love. Will you help Me carry My light to this darkened world? I am giving to you great graces to join in the deepest union with Me. Will you turn away and take My plea so lightly? Do you not see My Heart, crowned with thorns, and the cross above My Heart? I come and I spread My hands and I show you My Heart. You are My Shepherds that I am sending into the fields to spread My love to My little lost sheep. I beg you, with My deepest love, to take this plea seriously. I am Jesus and I love you so much. Please listen to Me. Please help Me spread My love - the love of My Heart and My Mother's Heart, to the world."

9. Song: I Love You Jesus

R. I see Jesus before me so many times. He is appearing transfigured in such light. Jesus is adorned in light and there is movement in His sweet and gentle face. This is how the Holy Spirit wants to work in us to transform us more and more into His image and likeness. We do not see the movement in ourselves, we do not see how we are being refined and purified, we see the struggle and we carry the cross daily. It is in identifying all of our suffering with His that we are joined to His life. He gives to us the cross. His way is the way of the cross. But, in the cross there is peace. We stay rooted in Him. "Rooted" - what a word to use. Deeply embedded - this is what rooted means. He says He wants to be one with us.

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.

R. He wants to live in us, to be so one in us, but it takes our surrender, our willingness to be so serious with this consecration. At every Mass, to say, "I give myself to You, God. I give myself and I die to myself. As You hung on the cross, as You were crucified, I unite with You. I give You myself that I may live more and more in You."

10. Hail Mary

 

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

R. Will we stay fixed to this world or will we die to ourselves and give ourselves to Him? He gives Himself to us. Jesus gives us himself in Communion. When we unite to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, being offered throughout the world, we unite to this sacrifice of Himself to the Father.

    Let us unite all of our actions with Him. We live His life, death and resurrection in our lives. We give ourselves to the Father and everything that we do is magnified. Everything becomes the greatest prayer when we unite with Him in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world in our Morning Offering.

Spirit Song: Jesus, O Jesus come and fill your lambs

1. R. Jesus hung on the cross. Jesus surrendered. Jesus breathed His last breath. He could have, at any moment, stopped what was happening. In His Divine knowing, He knew when He took the second last beat of His Heart and He surrendered, and He gave His all for He did it for me.

2. Jesus: Are you cold? Are you hungry? Are you scared? I live within your heart. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within you when you are baptized and in the state of grace, in a special way. Come to the deepest recesses of My Heart. Do not be afraid for I am with you forever and ever and ever. There is nothing to fear for if you stay rooted in Me you will never die.

3. R. Jesus gave Himself for me and He gives Himself to me today in the Holy Eucharist. Jesus feeds me with His Body and His Blood. The life that I received in Baptism is nourished by Him. He gives us His Body and Blood. This is the intimacy - Jesus gives Himself to us in a way that is much more intimate than any human could give themselves to us. Jesus gives us His Body and His Blood.

4. R. Jesus wants this spousal relationship with us. Jesus is the Bridegroom of our soul. The most attentive Bridegroom - that knows all the desires of our heart, that knows all about us far more than we know about ourselves. When we go to this interior dwelling, dwelling in His Heart, He imparts to us knowledge of Himself and knowledge of ourselves that no other person can tell us, knowledge in our soul.

5. R. I place myself in the heart of my Mother and I give myself to her for she is the Mother of my spiritual life. I feel, in the heart of Mary, this transforming action of the Holy Spirit and I am plunged into the inner cavity of Jesus' Heart, the endless  abyss of God's burning love, and it is there that I unite to the Father and I am engulfed by the presence of all Three Persons, united to Mary and there is no fear, for to be touched by love itself, this helps cast out fear. Jesus says: I am the way, I am the truth and the life.

Jesus: There is no other way, My dear ones. You have been called and you have been chosen. My shepherds, I want to unite in deepest union with you, that I may live in you and live in this world. You are My lights that will shine in the darkness. Come to Me. Die to yourself. At every Mass give yourselves as a sacrifice that you may be transformed more and more into My image and likeness. Pray to the Holy Spirit to permeate your being, to fill you with the fire of God's love and pray to Him to move within you at every moment – that it is the Spirit that lives within you and directs all of your activities, for God truly lives within you, My beloved ones. Free yourselves of any debris within your hearts and let Us unite in the deepest union with you. Any anger, hatred, unforgiveness, or division toward any person, divides you from this union with Me. You are My shepherds. I am giving you great graces to unite deeply to Me. Surrender and come to Me and let the Holy Spirit sanctify your soul. Die to yourselves and live in Me. I am Jesus. I am longing for your love.

6. R. O Heart of Jesus, I give myself to You. Take me into Your Heart. Hold me in this deep chamber and let me feel the fire of Your burning love.

7. R. We are one body in Him. As we all unite in the heart of Mary and the Heart of Jesus, we will be one body. The Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph and the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign. "When a sufficient number of people are consecrating their hearts to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, there will be peace." This is what Mary said at Fatima. It is our consecration, our giving of ourselves to Mary's Heart, to Jesus' Heart, that will make the peace in this world. This movement is to help spread this consecration to the priests, to the sisters and brothers, to the laity, to the children.

    When we are all consecrating our hearts, giving ourselves to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, when we pray our consecration this evening, let us pray with all our hearts and let us pray each day to the Holy Spirit to transform us more and more in the heart of Mary, in a greater image and likeness of our Beloved Savior.

8. R. Jesus came and He took me to the deepest recesses of His Heart.

9. R. To be engulfed in the presence of the Trinity - there was no fear for I know that Jesus gave Himself on the cross. He took His last breath and He surrendered and died for me.

10. Song: God's Love

Stay United

R. I want to promote unity. I cannot stand to hear talk about anyone. Conversation with others must not lead to division. We are to work in unity. I can't stand division. I am one in Him. Division: we talk about others, we don't like them. I want to be one, my whole life is at peace when I am one. I want to see us as one and God is running the show! (This does not refer to discussing people problems that must be resolved that are working against God's plan.)

    To be one in Jesus. We should not set up opposing sides just for mere conversation. Jesus wants us to be holy. Jesus doesn't want us to focus on ourselves in conversation to 'out-do' our brother. He wants us to love in conversation and tell the truth, not brag about ourselves and discredit our brother for our own vain glory. Jesus wants us to focus on Him.

    We are in the family of the Father. We were all uniquely created by God with a purpose. God loves us so much. We are to respect each other's talents and praise God for the good others do in promoting the Kingdom of God.

    I see us as one. I do not focus on my little group and ignore the plan of the Father for others.

    If I am filled with Jesus' love, I do not give into thoughts of division. Love binds all men together. I give myself to Mary. I go to her heart. I want the Holy Spirit to come and permeate my being. Mary takes me to the Heart of Christ and I unite with my Heavenly Father.

    The more I become as a little child of God, the more I lose my pride. The more I become child-like, obedient, the more I am united to God. Jesus obeyed His Father to His death. If I obey God the Father's will, I am happy. My life is in living to do the Father's will. I want to do the Father's will in all I do.

 

February 8, 1996

God Is Love

R. Jesus does not want me to divide with my brother, He wants me to live in love. God wants me united to all in my heart. Mary loves all her children. I give my heart to Mary's Immaculate Heart. Mary places me in Jesus' Heart. There is love not division in Their Hearts. I want oneness with the Trinity. Mary is the singular vessel. I cannot live IN Him and have division with my brother. God is love.

    When all are giving themselves to Mary and Jesus, then the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph and the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign. It is a progress that follows: the gateway to union with the Trinity is the heart of Mary.

    I cannot have division with any man and unite deeply in Their Hearts. I love Them so much. All I want is to dwell deeply in Their Hearts.

    When I unite in oneness with all three Persons, then I am most happy. My heart burns to think of all three Persons. I know Their presence in me. I know the Holy Spirit in me. I dwell in the Heart of Jesus. I am the little, dependent, humble child of my heavenly Father. Mary places me deeply in Jesus' Heart. Mary's heart is pure. Sometimes the touching by God is so intense.

Song: Your Presence Pervades My Soul

R. I cannot write about this, it is inexpressible in words - it is a pull so intense that I cannot express it.

    Intimacy with others for me must be in love united to God. I may talk about things with others, but what binds us together is how we are rooted in God. Conversation does not bind us together if it divides us from God. Because I share with another does not mean it creates unity. If it is talking in gossip or slander about others, it is sinful and it can hurt my relationship with God, it can hurt relationships with others. Jesus says: "My way is love." He wants us to be lost in the embrace of His undying love.

    The Spirit can move in me when I am living in Him, like a breathe in me. Sometimes when I am experiencing the presence of the Trinity, it is as if I am caught up in a hot wire, pulling around me, in me and with me. I know clearly this presence. I cry from the presence of God. To be embraced by love itself. I do not fear, it is a moment, time stands still.

    Think of the union between Mary and the Holy Spirit when He descended on her and the Word became flesh. I know the presence of God.

    Contemplate the deep love between Mary and the Holy Spirit. Contemplate the deep love between Jesus and Mary, as seen especially in the Seven Sorrows. Think of this tender relationship of Jesus and Mary. Think of the deep love between Mary and the heavenly Father. Mary is the little dependent child of the Father. Think of Mary's immense love for God the Father.

    I can unite deeper to Jesus as I go through Mary's pure and sinless heart. Mary loves God so much! Think of Mary's love for God; Mary is the gate, Mary is the singular vessel. Think of this everlasting love between God and Mary.

    Jesus tells us to be aware of those who look to separate you from one another. Jesus does not want us to fall into this trap. Jesus says, "I created you, you are to be one. You are children of the Father. God is your Father. You must love one another as brothers in Christ." Jesus is saying: you will not find love with one another if you create division with any man. Jesus tells us not to judge, lest we be judged. Jesus says, "Your heavenly Father wants you to be one as His creatures. Do not give into setting up sides. Who is My Mother, who is My brother?"

Matthew 12: 49-50

And stretching out his hand towards his disciples he said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers. Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.’

R. There is no bumping of heads when all are doing His will. To continue to set ourselves up against my brother is to divide us. To talk about others wrongfully and say "I am good, they are not good." God wants us to be one with them.

    I reached out, I saw the underprivileged and I loved them as they were. I saw the reflection of God within them. I united to them and I loved them in this act of loving. I am to love my enemy. Jesus loves His body, the Church. Jesus wants unity.


  Mark 3: 23-27

So he called them to him and spoke to them in parables, ‘How can Satan drive out Satan? If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot last. And if a household is divided against itself, that household can never last. Now if Satan has rebelled against himself and is divided, he cannot last either—it is the end of him. But no one can make his way into a strong man’s house and plunder his property unless he has first tied up the strong man. Only then can he plunder his house.

 

Prayer:

Dear Holy Spirit,
    Work in the heart of your beloved Spouse, my sweet Mother, so that I may acquire the virtues of faith, hope, charity, temperance, fortitude, obedience and humility, that I may be more and more like Mary, my Mother, and that I may love God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit and love all others as I should. Amen.

R. I want to love more and more like Jesus and I cannot love as I should love. Jesus help me with grace to love as You desire me to love. Many things I put before God I have made gods: things, tapes, money, persons.

    I am sorry for any person, place or thing I have put before You, my God. I am learning more how to totally trust in You, my God. I give You myself.

    Satan knows what and who we have made our gods and he parades them in front of our face! Satan works through anger and pride. 

    Satan hates us and satan hates God. Satan wants to take us to hell forever. Satan wants us so angry, that, that becomes our god. Red hot anger so we don't care about what is important to Jesus.

    All we care about is anger which leads to hatred and revenge for our brothers. How can we do this when God loves us so much and wants us to love Him. These Blue Books, letters from Jesus, tell us how much Jesus wants our love. Anger is from selfishness, making oneself over God. Anger has a desire for vengeance against our brother opposed to justice and love, God wants of us.

    If I am filled with His love, I do not give into thoughts of hateful, revenge and division. Love binds all men together. Some situations for those in authority must be addressed with others involved. It is done to stop evil from progressing and to serve God. To not do so is to shrug our responsibility and this is wrong.

Slander is wrong - hateful untruths against others. If satan could get away with it, he would try to take down the house. Those in charge must address it. 

    

February 9, 1996

Come to Lady of the Holy Spirit Center

Jesus: Today I am writing to you with an urgent request to join Me at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center on February 13, 1996 for a special rosary. You are My chosen Shepherds I am sending into this world to spread the love of My Heart and My Mother's heart.

    Please come at 7:00, there will be a special meeting as we join to pray for the priests and pray the rosary. My Mother and I are with you each in a special way. I love you with the deepest love. I am giving to you abundant graces to join ever closer to My Heart through the Shepherds of Christ Movement. This is My Movement for the renewal of the Church and the world. I am Jesus, I long to be so close to you. (Please read My message of August 1, 1995.)

 

February 13, 1996

Don't Focus on the Self

R. On February 13th (after much suffering) the more I focus on the self, the more I got the self. I must go beyond the self to God: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God lives in the graced, baptized soul. Jesus wants us to admit it when we are wrong, not to look for excuses and justification, to say we are sorry to our Heavenly Father and to be so sorrowful for offending God. Jesus calls us to holiness. He wants us to strive to be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect.

Jesus asks, do you not know how much I love you yet, after all I have written to you, after all I have done for you! If you do not know and love Me, the one I talk to, how do you expect others to love Me?

R. Jesus left me to Myself, it felt like. He left me operate on my own power and I felt sick inside. I need Him. I want Him. He is my beginning and my end.

    I am clogged, I cannot move. The last two 13ths I went through such sufferings. If I am to fly on eagle's wings, I must go beyond the self, die to myself, live in the Spirit, live in Him. He says, "My yoke is easy and My burden light." To focus on self keeps me hurled to the ground. My life is in Him.

    To feel disconnected to people we love and divided with others, we love, is great suffering. So if we know this can we imagine being divided with Jesus? Can we imagine hell – being void of God forever? My depth in union with Him depends on how I let go of myself. When I suffer His pain I cannot express it. I can only endure it. Jesus sweat blood. We must identify our pain with His, our life with His life, live His life in our life. Such a connection between love and suffering. He shows us Their Hearts with thorns - love endures pain, love leaves itself open to another. I love to give His love. Jesus lives in me.

    I never ever knew the abandonment I felt, I wanted to cry from all the pain I felt within. Nothing can express the sadness in my heart; nothing can express a life empty of God! To be rooted in the self, is to abandon yourself, because we are to be rooted in God. The self cries out for life. The stubborn mind and the will opposed to God's will continue to hold back the real source of life – God!

    Only in yielding your will totally to His will, will we be happy. To hold back on being united to God is to disconnect from the source of life. My life in Him depends on how much I surrender to Him.

    I will have life in me depending on how I surrender myself, surrender to all joy and suffering – He intends me to endure. For most of my life I go back to the self for many answers, especially to suffering. It is in suffering we unite more deeply in Him – we can identify with Him in suffering, rejection, loneliness, physical pain in being divided with those who are working against what God wants. For as we unite to His suffering we experience His life. I cannot do this. I need Him. I say the Prayer for Union with Jesus.

    I cannot express the pain, I can only endure it – that is why He sweat blood. I cannot express myself, only endure the pain when I get a mystical experience.

    I cannot express Mary's pain – that is why she has swords in her heart, that is why her tears are so powerful when offered to the Father.

    There are 3 Persons in One God. Jesus did His Father's will to His death on the cross.


Excerpt from Response to God's Love by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

... 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.
 

R. There is such a connection between love and suffering. That is why He shows us His Heart with thorns. We see Jesus and Mary's Hearts. Love is giving, to love we make ourselves open to suffering. Jesus gave His all. Jesus was rejected by many. He allows us to suffer rejection and pain with those we love. We must identify with Him in this suffering. He was treated with indifference and disrespect. We may be treated with disrespect and indifference, we identify with Jesus.

    To love is to be open to suffering:
    He loved – He sweat blood
    He loved – He gave His all.
    Love endures pain.
    In the garden, He suffered so much to His Heart.

Jesus: I was scorned. I gave and I gave. I gave My love for you. I gave to those who whipped Me. I sweat Blood. I knew all the rejection. Agonies to give and know the rejection of men from all time. Agony of Agonies. I was rejected by those I loved so much and died for.

R. While He was giving, He knew all the other times He gave Himself in the Eucharist and remained in the tabernacle and would be rejected. That is why it is so important now to give Him our burning love, because it was such sweetness in His bitter Passion.

    Jesus' pain was so great for His beloved religious that would be unfaithful lovers. That is why a holy priest or Sister gives Him such joy. Let us pray that the priests and Sisters are the greatest lovers of Jesus, He loves them so much!

    Love presupposes the cross. The life we share was paid for with His bitterest suffering. I feel the oneness of God, but especially since the experience of December 15th.
 

Excerpt from the Mass Book - December 17, 1995

    I touched eternity, and in that embrace, I knew all the waiting was worth the glory. You enveloped my being, and I was truly merged in the Divine Presence. I was merged in Your being. I existed IN You, with You, in the highest union with You, although I knew I was still distinct from You.
 

R. When I have an apparition there is a movement I cannot explain. It is not a body movement. It is not as we see ever, but there is a definite movement. There is a haze. There is a change as I see Mary, old-to-young, different clothes, but it is as if I don't ever see it change and I don't ever see it distinctly – it moves without seeing the movement.

    When I saw Jesus in front of Immaculata it is the same thing. Jesus looked glistening. Jesus was transfigured, before me, Jesus changed. However, I do not see the movement when it occurs. Sometimes when I am there I see nothing. Usually when I see something, I am so connected to Him, loving Him so much. My soul is undisturbed and I am given a grace. I am given a great grace to love Him and I have lost myself as I exist in Him.

    It is a wonderful feeling, as it was on the 15th of December, to be in Him because fear and weak thinking that can hold you back are gone. There is not fear when I am on the other side. I am lost in Him and I know the presence of all three Persons.

    I see things in the light and it is wonderful! I cannot bring it on. The intensity of what goes on inside is far greater than the vision but the vision permeates me as it is an experience that changes my perception of things and enhances my understanding of some mystery.

    I see this action of the Holy Spirit in Mary's heart as what I see when I see a vision which I cannot explain. It is similar to what was on the video on September 5th, but glistening and alive.

    The video of September 5th made it more concrete , it isn't exactly like that. To explain in human terms is impossible for me.

    I wish I had a video of my experience of December 31, 1995, though it is impossible to video a spiritual experience. There is a glistening. There is a movement, but the movement is undetected. The Grotto was there, glistening every rock and then it disappeared entirely. Mary was almost transparent and then she had the most beautiful skin. Like I could touch her, it can be this glistening, hazy, transparent appearance, the whole vision. I don't believe I ever saw skin like that on the face of Mary as I did on December 31st!

    This is what the action of the Spirit in Mary's heart looks like to me: It is white and glistening and fuzzy and active, real active and as I am actively worked on, time elapses and I feel out of time, aware only of the presence in the red cavern of His Heart or her Heart. In His Heart it is red and hollow, glowing, without an end, a definite sensation of endlessness and it is there in the endlessness I unite to the Father.

    The action takes place almost simultaneously but there is a progress in the events as Mary's heart comes first, first it comes, then the cavern, then the Father. It is there that I have immense peace and sense of being full, experiencing joy in many visions.

    On December 15th there was no cracks, I was elevated to this high level of human existence, existing only in Him or so it seemed to me. His dominance was all I felt but I was in no way non-existent. I was swept in love's embrace and I know to this day from this, a little of what it is to be absorbed by God's love, to unite to love itself!

    This is how it is: I unite to God. I know all three Persons. I know three Persons when I unite in this moment and my heart knows such satisfaction in Him.

    It is fire. I cry. It is beyond my human capabilities it seems. The tears are a release of the body to the awareness of the presence of God.

    With each Person, as I unite, the sense of being full is greater (as I say, this goes on almost simultaneously, but there is a progression). This is my burning love of God, beyond words and beyond this paper. I am trying to write this as best I can.

    I unite to God in this deep mystical experience. So many times my intimacy with Him is less a description of the whole picture – it varies how wide the understanding is. We know He calls us to love Him and love one another, to be joined in One Heart.

    The Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph and the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign when we are joined in One Heart and One Mind – all men together, a sufficient number, giving themselves in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

    Think of the Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles, as in Acts: All these with one mind, continued steadfastly in prayer. Think of what it would be like if all men were in one mind and one heart in God, living in His will, in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Excerpts from The Spirituality of Fatima  by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

"But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world." (13)

    Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. (19)

NOTES:

13. For background material on Fatima, I am particularly indebted to Our Lady of Fatima's Peace Plan from Heaven
      (Rockford: TAN Books and Publishers, Inc., 1983). p.5.
19. Ibid., pp.9-10.

R. When all are consecrated, in one mind and one heart, think of this.

    The love of God is deeply imbedded in the heart. Jesus shows us His Heart surrounded by thorns. Jesus shows us His Heart - Jesus shows us the pain. Love gives of oneself, opens oneself to suffering. The love of Jesus comes with the cross and the thorns.

    Jesus' love is enhanced when I unite with a chosen soul. He teaches me about love by loving others deeply.

    We must join in one heart with each other. This expands our heart and we feel His love through others.

    As I love one person more deeply, the love reverberates to all others in my life.

    The message to be delivered to this world is: the hungry soul longs to be fed. We are fed with the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, through the heart of Mary, in the Holy Spirit, in such oneness with the Father.

    This is the fire of God's love. My heart burns for love of Jesus.

 

February 13, 1996

Trust God

R. Why are we afraid to love God? We are to trust God and want to learn from God who created us to love. Happiness is in learning to love and be more and more like God –

Prayer for Union with Jesus

Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994

R. God is the source of love. God loves us so much, we are to love God. He wants our love. This is why God gave us the Blue Books - to know about the mystery of God's love. God calls us to love - we are to respond to God's love.

Dialogue: Jesus says: Are you cold, are you hungry, are you willful and controlling? I show you the way: My arms open wide - the way to life, My Divine Life.

R. Our parents, those who loved us were imperfect and many of us were hurt by their imperfections and dysfunction. Jesus shows us His Passion. Jesus loves me. Love – 

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.'


John 3: 16

For this is how God loved the world:
he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him 
    may not perish
but may have eternal life.
 

Song: A Song from Jesus

R. God commands us to love Him with our whole heart and whole soul and whole mind, and love our neighbor as ourselves. Jesus suffered the greatest rejection and He still loved. Jesus shows us the way, despite the fact that He was rejected, spit on, whipped - He still loved! Jesus gives us the cross to look at it. Jesus loved us to His death on the cross. Jesus says "I died for you, what more do you want?" Jesus gave Himself for me!

    Jesus doesn't want me caved-in and selfish!

    When I was given a special person Jesus wanted me to be close to, it was very "scary" to me.

    A great fear we can have is rejection by others. I cannot love deeply if I choose to hold myself closed. Jesus sends a confessor or other spiritual guide, as a special person to us that we can reveal our soul, that we can tell our fears, our sins and our joys. If the person or priest, is like Christ, he will listen and still love us no matter what we have done. It is we who think people do not love us many times, and they don't like our actions. If we really notice things how they really are, we will probably see that they do love us and pray for us, and we should thank Jesus for their friendship. Some people if they have a good time create problems for themselves because they only think it's safe to trust themselves. People love us, show us they love us, and since we are afraid of getting close, we can do something hateful to push them away. This is not being like Jesus.

Song: Why Do We Hurt the Ones We Love

R. The role of the priest is to be Christ-like, he forgives our sins. Confession is so important for the soul. The priest must be holy so he responds to the sinner as Jesus would respond.

    If we were rejected by our parents, if we were loved only when we pleased them, we learned conditional love.

    Jesus loves us unconditionally. No matter how bad we are, He forgives and loves us when we are sorry, if we ask Him. We are accountable and responsible for our sins.

    When others who should have loved us hurt us, it may be hard to open yourself up and let someone get close for some. We must trust certain others. God commands us to love. Not shut down.

    Jesus gave His all. Jesus spread His arms. Jesus kept giving.

    Confession is so important to the soul. A good, loving confessor, one like Jesus, is important to our spiritual growth - our growth in His love. We cannot deceive ourselves about our sins and grow in the spiritual life. We are accountable and responsible for our sins.

    Priests have a great responsibility to respond as Jesus would respond to the person confessing sins. It is hard for a person to tell someone their sins. The priest must pray to be more and more like Christ that they do not hurt the penitent. The priest must especially put on Christ when He is administering the sacraments.

    If we are hurt in love, we may be afraid to love. We must pray to the Holy Spirit to heal wounded relationships. Jesus is the Divine Healer – Jesus in giving us these letters in God's Blue Book wants us to spread them to all.

    The greatest commandment - commands we love – Jesus is telling us about love in His letters of love in God's Blue Book. And these rosaries are Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary – all about the love of the Two Most Perfect Hearts of love!!

    Jesus heals our hearts and gives us His love. God gives us others who love us. If we were once hurt and never open up again, we will not learn how to love others. We need healing. We need to pray to the Holy Spirit.

    I learn to love by walking the Passion with Jesus. Jesus allowed me to walk with Him. I know Jesus through the sufferings.

    People are imperfect, they love imperfectly. Jesus sends us some who love us deeply. We must realize when God is giving us such special love and take a chance and love, not hurt others who love us because of our wounds and fear.
 

1 John 4:17-21

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.
 

R. Jesus puts the fragmented pieces of my life together when I go to Jesus before the tabernacle. Jesus teaches me about His love and Himself. Jesus teaches me about the Father's will for me. The Holy Spirit is the love of God on fire for love of us.

    There is such a connection between love and suffering. Both Mary and Jesus show us Their Hearts surrounded with thorns. Love endures pain. To love I open myself up to another and know there is pain and joy – misunderstandings, death/resurrection, loneliness, etc. Look at Jesus on the cross. Jesus shows us that to love means giving of ourselves. To love means that we are open to suffering.

    In Jesus' Divine knowing, Jesus knew all the sufferings to His death. He knew all of the rejection. Agonies of agonies to suffer and know the rejection while giving - in the act of giving, to know the scorn and keep on giving.

    Jesus knew all the times He would be rejected in the Eucharist, and the endless hours He would remain alone in the tabernacle.

    Our burning love now is such sweetness to Him. Jesus longs for the love of His priests and Sisters. A holy priest gives Jesus such comfort. We must pray with all our hearts for the priests and the religious.

    The life He gave was paid for with bitter sufferings.

    

  

February 14, 1996 - Valentine's Day

R. The more I become as a little child, the more the Father gives of Himself. The more I give up control, the more I am dependent on God and the more I know God's love.

Matthew 11: 25

At that time Jesus exclaimed, 'I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children.

R. Jesus is the Heart of greatest love. It is Valentine's Day and look how Jesus is treated! You are my favorite Heart, Jesus. I love You so much!

    The spoken Word is like a two-edged sword. The Word of God is living and it penetrates the heart and soul!

    If priests are filled with this deep love of God, the Word, which is a seed, is planted deeply in their hearts and the congregation hears this!

    It is the Word, planted deeply in the hearts of the flock, that will take them to the Chief Shepherd. They will be led home through the spoken Word.

    The Word is a seed that grows. It should be planted deeply and it will produce sound fruit. It is the spoken Word of God that digs deep into the heart.

    Let us proclaim His Word from the housetops with highest jubilation, let us shout it from the highest pinnacle and let it be planted deeply in the hearts of all that they may know the Word of God and let it live in them. God wants to live and dwell in us – We are given baptism.



John 1: 9

The Word was the real light that gives light to everyone; he was coming into the world. 
 

John 6: 51

'I am the living bread which has come down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live for ever; and the bread that I shall give is my flesh, for the life of the world.’


R. Let His Word penetrate our soul and seep deep into our hearts so we will let others know the Word alive in us.

Jesus: I AM the Word that guards you night and day, sent from heaven above to feed and nurture you. My Word is food, indeed, for the soul.

  

 

February 15, 1996 - After Communion - Cathedral
Feast of St. Claude de la Columbiere

R. The great gift Jesus gave me was the pains in my feet and front of my legs on the morning of the 14th. They hurt so badly I couldn't express how painful it was.

(I gave myself totally to Him after Communion this day.)

  

  

February 16, 1996

R. I went to see Fr. Smith (was tempted not to pray between 12 and 3:00, but went to Immaculata at 12:30. I have been told to pray between 12 and 3:00 - no excuses.)

 

Through Him, With Him and IN HIM

R. God's love is surrounding me, a permeating action. God fill me with Your abundant life. Action from the Heart of Christ. Oh, burning furnace of endless love, engulfed by the white mist, the glistening action of the Spirit, in the depth of Jesus' Heart. I am one with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

See Diagram: like a pot-bellied stove - as heat (white heat coming off it) moving to sanctify and fill us with unity - oneness in Him!

 

From the Mass Book

December 15, 1995

He Wrapped Me in His Divine Embrace

Written at 12:30 p.m., in Holy Cross-Immaculata Church:

    I wanted to love Him so much. I realized God’s magnificence and goodness, and I wanted to give Him such great love, but I realize my incapacity to love Him more in my human form.

    I realize how God is so worthy of all my love. My intellectual realization of how worthy He is, does not match with my attempt to love Him. It hurts to want to love Him so much. He gives me an insight, a light into His magnificence, and I realize my littleness.

    So overwhelmed with the desire to give Him love, no thought of myself - my whole being wants to love Him with this immense love. The world is non-existent. It is I and Him, and my whole being merges with Him and this one desire to unite endlessly, forever in the deepest union. Time stands still, and it is the meeting of our hearts, this oneness with Him. I slip into His Heart and nothing here matters, as if I have embraced such depth of union with Him. I want only Him. I see only Him, and I am one in this deep, deep embrace with Him. I lost myself in Him.

    My existence is existence only in Him. It is being wrapped in love’s embrace with Divinity.

    The world existed around me, and all I knew was the embrace of the Almighty God. My heart sunk into His Heart, and I existed only in Him, my whole being seeing myself existing only in Him.

    I saw His body as I stood beneath the cross at Holy Cross-Immaculata Catholic Church. I wanted to unite with Him eternally in this great depth of love I felt. I wanted to be totally lost in Him forever. By being merged with Him, I existed in Him, knowing only Him and loosing myself. I saw the Child Jesus statue, and I was lost in God. I begged the Father through the tears of tender, loving Mary, in the Holy Spirit, to help me to make His love known to this world, to use me, use my life as He willed to make this love of God known. Then, coming back to myself, I begged the Father, through the tears of the tender, loving Mary, in the name of the Christ Child, in the Holy Spirit, to help me to make His love known to this world, to use me, my life as He willed to make this love of God known.

Diagram: Notes: His lament of love - Burning love - given by Him - Burning love - He wants from us.

December 17, 1991: Saw vision of a burning Heart

Jesus gave me gentle messages - told me how precious I was, wooed me into His Heart. Jesus told me He loved me.

December 17, 1991Picture of Jesus' Heart on fire.

Jesus: I am Jesus. I have spoken as never before, you will spread My love to all souls on this earth.

His Burning Heart

R. I was alone in All Saints Church after Mass and Communion, in front of the tabernacle, when I saw the Sacred Heart. It was red around the outside, then a layer of yellow and then the brightest light in the center. I felt heat and it looked like an open furnace.

    I thought about it all day and it instantly gave me peace and warmth in my heart. This is the purpose of these lettersto draw hearts to the ardent on-fire love of Jesus. I received the following message that day:

    "Open your heart to the fire of God's love. He is ablaze in your heart. He wants to dwell in you and love you and others through you. Love God, yourself and one another and experience the fire set aglow in your heart and experience the warmth of His love."

end of writing
 

R. Sufferings: December 18, 1993: I heard: "I Died for You". I felt Him in the study sitting next to me and lamented in my chair. He died - Jesus wants to dwell in us. See Blue Book I - p. 151

The Aching Heart messages - on December 17, 1995, I wrote: "O Divine lover of my soul, let me make reparation to Your adorable Heart for the neglect and indifference against You."

Jesus allowed me to suffer so much, then on December 15, 1995 He took me to the other side.

        Excerpt from December 17, 1995 - The Earth Stopped and Touched Heaven

    He allowed me to experience such pain in my heart - wanting Him so badly, so many times-and then on Dec. 15, 1995 - He gave Himself to me in the deepest union.

    Nothing satisfies the soul but Him. He wants the nuns and priests to love Him. He chose them to spread His love.

    Souls are hungry. They will only be fed with His burning love. Priests need to talk about Jesus' love for us from the pulpit. Priests need hearts burning for love of Jesus. This will feed the hungry souls - lip service love doesn't do it.

    He is alive today. He is a Person. He wants us to love Him.

R. My Heart Bleeds - Blue Book II p. 145 – I allow you to suffer on Saturday and Sundays.

Excerpt from March 6, 1994 - Sunday Night

Jesus: I am Jesus, Son of God. I truly suffered. Your heart is experiencing aching. I allow you to ache and feel some of My emotions. I am a person. When people love one another, they share each other's pain. Your heart aches as I, too, ache for love of My beloved ones. Preach about My aching heart.

Every soul has periods of unrest because the soul was made to love the Lord. Sunday is a day I let you suffer My aching heart. I want you to tell others how I ache for love of them. I allow you to suffer on Saturday and Sunday for My aching heart.

end of excerpt

R. I received the message on January 17, 1994, "I Want My Priests to Come Back" "Prayer for Union with Jesus" in Blue Book II.

February 6th: My Heart Aches for You.

What I remember most:
December 18th, 1993 - sitting in my chair lamenting - He died, what more do we want?

        Excerpt from Blue Book I - Take Up Your Cross

Jesus: ...Pain, child? I suffered so much for love of you! This is how I love you at this moment. In all that befalls you you must know at every moment that I know exactly what you are suffering. There is nothing that happens in your life without My consent and it comes from Him Who loves you.

Take your crosses and truly endure them. Accept them. Know that everything that happens in your life I have allowed. Accept it with the love with which I give it. You are being taught in that pain. You are suffering for yourselves and others. I endured all that pain. Did I once say, "Father, take it away?" I am your model. I showed you the way. I took it all, every last wound, every kick and smack and vileness. I took My cross and I carried it without a word. This is what I ask of you. Know that when you are experiencing pain or suffering, or being taunted by those around you, look to the Master for your course of action. I took it all, every last wound, and accepted it to My death. I did not say, "Oh, how awful." I did not complain. I walked in silence that bumpy road with a heavy cross, with My mother suffering by My side and I never complained. I accepted it all for love of you...

end of excerpt

R. December 25, 1993 - Christmas (pain so bad in my heart, could scream - wanted anything to release pain.)

        Excerpt from Blue Book I - I Came This Day as a Baby

Jesus: I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. The gift I give is eternal life. I came this day as a baby to make ready your way to the Kingdom. I love you with such intensity. This is the reason for My coming.

If I could get inside of you and make you realize My love. I died a brutal death. I came and was born God as a man. I rose again from the dead and you don't even realize My death and how important all this is to your salvation. You doubt My intense love, no matter what I said or did. You need to keep a list every day and put on it the proof that "my Lord loves me." Make this your gift to Me and yourself this Christmas. A list every day of proof of My love for you! I love you so, little one. Cling to Me and My ways. The world is in so much darkness and so much pain. ...

end of excerpt

R. Then it started on the Sundays at 5 - 6:00. I had to go to the tabernacle at St. Phillips. Jesus would lament: I would have this tremendous pain.

February 5, 1994 - Vision

Jesus said important messages were in Blue Book II: March 6th, March 7th and March 13th, 1994. March 20th (said no one is listening) and March 21st., March 22nd - Day of the Big Boom.

Jesus started with Rosaries in Blue Book III and Jesus told me about Mary's pain in Blue Book III in May, 1994.

Blue Book IV - Insight into the Love of the Two Hearts: Jesus and Mary.

On June 16, 1994 - Blue Book III - Jesus told me to go to the Center and I would see as I have never seen before. I saw little white lights on my notebook.

Then July 5, 1994 Mary started appearing. On August 10, 1994, Blue Book IV  I receiving The Peering Eyes message.

The Shepherds of Christ Meetings started Tuesday, August 30, 1994 at the Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center because of the direction of Jesus. This was the beginning of my Core Chapter of Shepherds of Christ. Many of the rosaries in this book came from these Tuesday meetings of the Core Chapter of the Shepherds of Christ.

R. Fr. Carter received the message July 31, 1994.

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)

 

R. I received this message August 1, 1994. This is on the back of Blue Book IV.

August 1, 1994

Pray For The Success Of The Priestly Newsletter - Shepherds of Christ

R. The following is the first official message I received before the statue of Mary at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. It is a personal message for Father Carter.

Mary: (in front of the glowing statue of Our Lady of Sorrows) I am the Immaculate Heart. My Heart is glowing for love of all my beloved children. I am your most loving Mother. I am with you this day. Pray for the success of the priestly newsletter Shepherds of Christ. I am guarding your way. You will receive such graces to accomplish this task! Grace from God is so abundantly bestowed on you and will lead to the success of this endeavor! Pray for this cause at the Center. The priests will lead the people to the love of My beloved Son. This is no little task. It will take many prayers and graces. Pray hard, little one. Your prayers will change many hearts.

I am Mary, your Immaculate Mother. I bring this message to My beloved priest-son.

end of August 1, 1994

R. Mary said how important Father Carter and the Shepherds of Christ Movement was to the world.

These Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary were given at the Shepherds of Christ Meetings. And messages where Jesus said we were to go out to the world with this message. I saw a vision of St. Margaret Mary the first night of the Shepherds of Christ Meeting on Tuesday.

August 1994

R. On the last Tuesday of August, 1994, there took place our first Shepherds of Christ meeting. While at mass at the Cathedral, I saw a vision of St. Margaret Mary reading from a white book. This happened right before the meeting. When I drove into the driveway of Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, I heard Our Lord speak, "These are My apostles of My Sacred Heart.", or something to that effect.

R. I saw vision of Father Carter with his hand on the Church.

January 1995

R.  Before the 17th meeting in January of 1995, I had received the following vision when at Mass at the Cathedral of Saint Peter in Chains. It was either late December, 1994 or early January, 1995. I drew the picture in the notebook.

It looks as follows:

vision
when at Mass at the Cathedral of Saint Peter in Chains

The face was a flesh colored, but I could not see the features. The gown was white with a square neck.

The next day Jesus told me it was Father Carter. This vision along with another vision I had received about the same time appeared on the 17th book in January 1995.

The other vision was a church that looked similar to our church in China, Indiana, and in the front of the church was a gigantic Host with tremendous light coming forth from it.

On the cover was a Shepherd and the world.

The vision of the church looked like this:

There was a message at this meeting. The message said that THE POWER is in the Eucharist.

R. This vision is on the front of Blue Book 6A, B, and C

R. There was an important message January 5, 1995. The Plan of God the Father will unfold. - See the Big Picture  (Blue Book 6A)

Rosaries began on the 13th of every month starting October 13, 1996 at the direction of Jesus. Special persons Melanie, Ellen, others would come.

May 13, 1995 - Could connect everything I did with Fatima – before I did not understand Fatima.

Florida June 26, 1995 - traveled. Message, "Unless the messages of His love are circulated in the Church, the bloodshed will continue."

December 13, 1995 - suffered for 2 1/2 hours for the priests, Sisters and religious.

December 15, 1995 - taken to the other Side.

January 20, 1996 and January 21, 1996 - Saturday - suffered so much for the nuns and priests.

Vision: We dwell in her heart - I give myself to Mary. Holy Spirit works to make us more like Jesus. Deep cavern of His love - it is in the center I unite with the Father.

God wants us to know all Three Persons and to know God as one.

    I give Myself to you!
    This is My Body! This is My Blood!
    Tell them, Tell them!

March 13, 1994 - My Heart Aches for You (excerpt)

 Jesus: I long for their love. I died for them. How do I make them know if you, to whom I speak, hold back? I want you to get the messages out, child. ... You must tell them how I wait for them. I wait. I want them to come and I will give them such love! ... I want you to tell all of My love and how I am waiting. Emotion! Emotion! I am crying out to you in your heart!

March 6, 1994 - My Heart Bleeds (excerpt)

February 24, 1994 - Let Me Permeate Your Being (excerpt)

Jesus: I want action from your heart. I want love. I want to be as close to you as an ardent lover. I am a person. I am God. I wait for your love affair with Me this day.

One in Their Hearts

R. I see everybody I love in Jesus and Mary's Hearts. I see us united giving to Their Hearts and dwelling in Their Hearts is the key. As I dwell in the Heart of Jesus I am one with the Father, the Holy Spirit moves in this - the Holy Spirit is the fire of God's love.

    I need this dwelling in Their Hearts to be as our heavenly Father wants us to be. God wants us to strive to be perfect –

Matthew 5: 48   ...You must therefore be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.’

R. In dwelling in Their Hearts, I am perfected more and more in Their love. Such work They have to do with me, but I can go there in the pure heart of Mary, My beloved Mother. It is there I act in Their love. I love with Their love. If these were words that I have written before, I did not comprehend them then, but now know this is the place to grow in holiness and love. I want to love as They love more and more but I am so full of self. I see before me all my faults and realize I need to give my heart to Jesus and Mary.

To Fr. Carter from Jesus

     From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

The Holy Spirit

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in My likeness. He performs this marvel within Mary's Immaculate Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My own Heart. In both Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master. All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!"

Reflection: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with our Mother, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us.

end of excerpt

R. I see clearly, it is in Their Hearts that I act in love and when I am not focusing on my consecration to Their Two Hearts, I can get focused on myself and act selfish. I pray for grace to dwell forever in Their Hearts, to love in deepest love and to dwell with this love in Their Hearts.

    It is really circular - the more I dwell in Their Hearts, the more I learn how to love others for Mary and Jesus love each person with such love. The more I love each person, the deeper I unite to Jesus and Mary and the more deeply one we all are in Jesus and Mary's Hearts.

    If I want to love God and love the world, if I want to grow in perfection, I must dwell in Their Hearts. It all centers in the Hearts of love of Jesus and Mary.

  

R. This is my prayer for grace to more fully dwell in Their Hearts at every moment, at every second.

    I cannot be as the Father wants me to be on my own. I need God's grace – I am loving because God gives me grace to love. When left to the self I can act selfish. I feel the action of the Spirit in the heart of Mary working in me. I want the Holy Spirit to dwell in me. I dwell in Jesus' Heart for she is in Jesus' Heart and in that beautiful place, I know the Father and unite to Him and He, to me. In the white center of Jesus' Heart, I unite to my beloved Father, deeply in the Heart of Jesus, my true Beloved, through the Holy Spirit.

     This is why it is so important to consecrate our heart to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary! This consecration is so important. If we want peace in this world, it is found in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Mary said at Fatima: "When a sufficient number of people have consecrated their heart to Jesus and Mary, we will have peace in the world." Fr. Carter said at least 50%.

    There will be one flock and one Shepherd. We will be One: One in Him, One Body in Christ, One Dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary through the action of the Holy Spirit, with our Heavenly Father - One Holy Family!

    Who is my brother, who is my mother? Anyone who does the will of the Heavenly Father! He has a plan for us to be united as one through Jesus, His Son!

   

February 18, 1996 - After Communion

God Wants Oneness with Him

R. God created us to love Him and be satisfied by Him and we can only be completely satisfied in heaven. Jesus wants us to be One in Him, Jesus wants us to love as He loved, to love every person as He loves them! I cannot love Him deeply if I do not love my brothers. To know and love Jesus is to know and love all He knows and loves.

    I knew His love so deep December 15, 1995, Mass Book and Blue Book 9, also December 17th and December 18th.

    Jesus allowed me to experience this depth of oneness in Him, to let me have this vision and deep presence of God, that I will now know forever! As I dwell in Their Hearts and unite in this deep love of God, I will interact with others as I live In Him.

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.
 

R. I long to live in God to be living in Him. God dwells in me and operates to this world through me.

    I join with others in deep, spiritual love. This takes discipline of self. To love someone deeply, spiritually in God, it is in total accord with His will. To help me advance spiritually in my love of God. I should love others deeply and spiritually. I learn about loving God by loving others and learn about loving others from learning from God how to love. The self wants to be satisfied. We can never be completely satisfied here on earth. The holy soul wants only to please God.

    I seek to do God the Father's will. God lives in my graced, baptized soul: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I have a body and a soul, the body lives to serve the soul.

1 John 4: 17-21

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.
 

R. I love my God with this deep spiritual love. I give myself to God. I live to please God. I long and thirst for God. God satisfies my starved soul. God intends me to walk hand in hand with others – to love and work on my relationships with significant others He put in my life.

    In my love relationship with God and all others, I want only to do the Father's will. I love God with my whole heart, my whole soul and my whole being.

    Love is circular. I learn how to love others from God. He is the source. I learn how to love God deeper by loving others. The three awarenesses are: love of God, love of self, love of others. I cannot have deep love if I am missing one of the three.

Excerpt from the Priestly Newsletter 2000 - Issue 3  by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

The fact that the Church is here on earth a reflection of the Trinitarian Community easily leads us to reflect upon the Church as the Body of Christ, since this name given to the Church also emphasizes the communal aspect of the Church. St. Paul tells us: For as with the human body which is a unity although it has many parts -- all the parts of the body, though many, still making up one single body -- so it is with Christ. We were baptised into one body in a single Spirit, Jews as well as Greeks, slaves as well as free men, and we were all given the same Spirit to drink. And indeed the body consists not of one member but of many. If the foot were to say, ‘I am not a hand and so I do not belong to the body’, it does not belong to the body any the less for that. Or if the ear were to say, ‘I am not an eye, and so I do not belong to the body’, that would not stop its belonging to the body. If the whole body were just an eye, how would there be any hearing? If the whole body were hearing, how would there be any smelling?

Now Christ’s body is yourselves, each of you with a part to play in the whole. And those whom God has appointed in the Church are, first apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly teachers; after them, miraculous powers, then gifts of healing, helpful acts, guidance, various kinds of tongues. Are all of them apostles? Or all prophets? Or all teachers? Or all miracle-workers? Do all have the gifts of healing? Do all of them speak in tongues and all interpret them? (1 Cor 12:12-17; 27-30)

R. This love is a reflection of the love that the Persons of the Trinity have for one another. God gives us a sharing in His life in baptism.

    If I am baptized and remain in the state of grace the Trinity dwells within me. This love is reflected in my life, in proportion to how deeply I am saturated with God's grace. Grace is a participation in His life.

 

February 19, 1996

Jesus is Truly Present in the Eucharist

R. For the first time in sometime I was given the grace to want Him so badly, to see my Beloved God. I miss Him so much if I can't go to the tabernacle daily and daily Mass. I couldn't get into Immaculata because they were doing the floor. I tried to go to Xavier and they were having a funeral. I went to the library to study for a test and missed this time before the tabernacle with Jesus so much! I long to go to the tabernacle. Jesus is truly present in the consecrated host. I went to All Saints and I was overwhelmed with love and adoration for the Almighty God. I cried for the first time in a long time and bowed to the ground for He truly is Our Majesty, the Almighty God, worthy of all honor and devotion - I love Him so much!

 

February 19, 1996

The White Heat of His Love

Notes:

    R. To stop at words is to miss the fire. The heart unites to the mind, the heart is filled with the knowledge the mind has. I am not all heart, I am not all mind, I am as He is in me, filled with His presence. He is love. I unite in the deepest love to all.

    It is in the heart I want to unite in the white heat of the Father's love with the Holy Spirit and Mary to join in the mystery of God's love, the mystery of the Trinity. "And they were joined in one mind and one heart, united in His love, bound by the Hearts." This is the love that will unite the Shepherds of Christ Movement, united in Consecration in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I love the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    I need His love to love Him so deeply. We are not isolated. We are to be united in love. We are creatures of God. We should be bound by hearts of love – Living in Their Hearts!!

Guiding Light - Reflect on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light homily series - Reflect on the Word - Cycle B —  The Word leaves an impression on our souls. In my thoughts and reflections are born a more tangible understanding of these eternal concepts presented in the Gospels and the readings. Anyone can read a sentence, but not anyone can absorb it's true meaning. Truth, in this day and age, is almost a matter of opinion or individual entitlement. We believe that Christ's truth is our Roman Catholic Church. We, as priests, champion it's teachings; we are ambassadors for the Pope and Christ to those faces looking at us. We are the light by which our congregation reads to reflect upon real truth and we do it hand in hand. $15

Guiding Light - Steadfast to the Son
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle A of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light homily series - Steadfast to the Son - Cycle A — The sunflower is a great example of how we should be steadfastly guided by light. What a powerful thought that this exceptional plant is not stuck in one pose day in and day out, yet adaptable and magnetized to the sun. We feel the same about our Son. Our heads turns to face Christ as each day presents its challenges to find light. We join together like plants in a field and soak up the Son through the pulpit. We are a warm circle of strength using the wind of our breath to carry our priests' words, Christ's words, to new rich soil. $15

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul - Cycle C — In a world rapidly advancing and encouraging personal gain, we are faced with modern problems. There is a challenge to find time in our busy schedules for Sunday Mass or a family meal. We are able to research, shop, bank and even work without hearing one human voice. It is no wonder that we may often feel disconnected and famished at our week's end. In Fr. Joe's third book of homilies from Cycle C, we are reminded of the charity that Christ intended us to show each other. We have a calling to turn the other cheek and be the Good Samaritan to others. We are rewarded with the Father's kingdom and love when we are not worthy. We are not left alone or hungry. $15

Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word - Cycle B — At times we may feel that our path to Christ is a bit "out of focus". Like the disciples in the Book of Mark, this ordinary life clouds our vision of Christ's Divinity. We may doubt the practicality or possibility of applying His teachings and example to our modern life. Cycle B's homilies are a "guiding light" to help us realize Jesus' Messianic greatness and His promise of better things to come. $15

$ 10.00  plus postage

Priestly Newsletter - 2000 #1 - CD. - Christ is Our Strength - Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. It is so beautiful. "This brief passage contains one of the greatest lessons of the spiritual life. As we progress along our spiritual journey, we become increasingly aware of how weak we are in our-selves, but how strong we are in Christ. To experience our weakness involves suffering. The degree and kind of suffering can vary. The suffering can include the experience of the classical dark night of the spirit as described by St. John of the Cross. One of the main purposes of the dark night is to make a person keenly aware of his or her helplessness without God." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10

Priestly Newsletter - 2000 #2 - CD. - Suffering: A Source of Life - Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. Fr. Carter knew suffering that year. His voice is so powerful as he read each Newsletter from his heart and soul. "Every man has his own share in the redemption. Each one is also called to share in that suffering through which the redemption was accomplished. He is called to share in that suffering through which all human suffering has also been redeemed. In bringing about the redemption through suffering, Christ has also raised human suffering to the level of the redemption. Thus each man in his suffering can also become a sharer in the redemptive suffering of Christ–." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10
