Song:  I Am Your Sacred Heart

Song:  Little Child  


The Agony in the Garden

1. Most of the messages that I receive from Jesus, I just hear a few words and then the message comes as I speak.  I do not know what He will say through me. A lot is reflection, some from the Holy Spirit.  Most of the content of the rosary is this way. On some occasions, He has asked me to read certain excerpts from a book. Today He has asked me to have with me God’s Blue Book II in which a lot will come from that when I read something and also from the Apostles Manual. However, most that I receive is received as I sit here from Jesus, and I speak as He speaks through me. I do not know what He will say. I just am used as the instrument to deliver the message to you.

2. This is from the Apostles Manual. This is a letter that I wrote to Jesus. “My whole life is to be like You, but I am so imperfect. Dying to myself is such a struggle because I want to get down from the cross and hold on to my old ways.

I see You on the cross, Jesus, with Your hands opened wide and the way You hung. You endured it until the end. Three agonizing hours. You did not get down and You gave Your all. In humbleness, I will admit my faults and grow to be more like You. Oh, God, I can't get down from the cross and put the old imperfections back on.

When You light the way and show me how evil I am, I have to go all the way to the death of the imperfections as much as possible. I cannot get off the cross and keep any of them. I want to be like You, but I fall so short of true holiness. I only know I really, really love You and I want to be like You. When You were beaten raw, You loved those who hated You. Oh, our way is so hard. I don't want to open myself up to those who have hurt me, but I know I should.

Jesus: I tell you, you must die to your selfish ways and love. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. Admit your failings so you can die to them.” (Apostles Manual, February 28, 1997, A Love Letter to Jesus)

3. And so what do I see all through the sorrowful mysteries, but the surrender of our Almighty God. I see Him as He kneels in the garden. He is alone there, for the apostles slept. And He surrendered, surrendered always to the will of the Father. How many times in our life do we know that there is something very difficult that we must do, but it is very hard for us. And so we struggle, we struggle trying to do what God is telling us to do and what we want to do. It is in doing His will that we will have peace and joy. Many times it is very difficult to do those things that He asks of us. But in order to have peace and oneness with Him, we must comply to the will of the Father and do as He asks.

4. Jesus speaks:  I opened Myself, I opened Myself for you, My beloved ones.  I gave, I gave Myself to My death on the cross. 

Look at Jesus today. In the Eucharist He gives Himself to us. It is as if we would give ourselves to someone, to open ourselves wide, to share ourselves and they would walk away and treat us with much indifference. The Almighty God is all perfect love and He gives Himself to us freely in the Eucharist. He gives Himself to us in the greatest love. He is longing and He is waiting for us to come to Him in Holy Communion to unite in this most intimate way with our Divine Savior. And so many walk away immediately after they have received Communion, the gift of love given by the all perfect God. He gives Himself and people walk away and they do not treasure this great gift that He gives to us.  Let us look deep into our hearts and let us think of the gifts God has given to us. Let us think of the gift that God is here present at this very moment, in this most holy place, the Almighty God, the same Jesus that knelt in the garden, that sweat blood, that carried His cross, that hung on His cross. He is here, the same Jesus that rose from the dead, that ascended into heaven, He is here and He remains with us. Hear Him. He calls out to me and to you, “So few souls come to Me with a heart that is filled with such love and I am longing and I am waiting for them to come and to share themselves with Me.”

5. Feel the anguish of our beloved Savior in the garden as He kneels. And He knows of all of the souls that He loved so, the souls that He would give Himself to in the Holy Eucharist and they would leave and would not even recognize the great gift that He gave to them. How His Heart hurt with immense pain in the Passion, suffering within His Heart for wanting their love, wanting them to share this most intimate time with Him. He gives Himself so intimately to them in the Holy Eucharist. And they walk away as if the gift is nothing, and they talk of senseless things.

6. I remember this so well. It was February the 28th, 1994 . 

Note: It was noisy right after Communion. He was upset.

R. Jesus, truly is in our midst! It is the fire of His love in our breasts that will warm the cold heart.

Jesus: How can you, in your indifference, walk from Me when I am truly present in your body? How can you, when you see Me hanging on the cross out of love for you, walk away when I, God, love you so much as to come and be inside of your body?

You are ignorant because you are busy for all the wrong things. If you, My little ones, were busy about our love affair, I would teach you all you need to know, but you busy yourself with such nonsense.”  Jesus lamented and lamented the loss of the souls that were leaving the chapel. He cried out. It sounded as if in greatest pain and anguish for the souls that were leaving, when He wanted so much intimacy with them. (God's Blue Book II, February 28, 1994 After Communion, God Is There In Holy Communion)

7. This is what this is about. Our Lady promised at Fatima that there would be this great era in which the Sacred Heart of Jesus would reign and her Immaculate Heart would triumph. In this great era, it will be an era in which man will know such intimacy with God far beyond any that we know at this time.  He is revealing these secrets to us, the secrets of His Heart so that we will be more intimate with Him. And He is giving to us a great grace to be ever closer to Him. He promised Father Carter in a message that He gave to him, when he began the Shepherds of Christ movement as Jesus requested, that He would give to the members of the Shepherds of Christ movement abundant graces to be ever closer to His Heart and to the heart of His Mother. Jesus’ Heart, let us focus on this burning heart of love.  Let us see it clearly before our eyes. This is the Almighty God. He is here in this room with us at this very moment and He wants our love.

8. So much our beloved Savior suffered. He sweat blood. It is love He wants from us. For He has said many times before in these rosaries, His greatest anguish was not the wounds to His body during the Passion but it was the wounds to His most Sacred Heart. Think of yourselves. Think of how it is if you break a leg. You are inconvenienced, you suffer from the pain.  But think of how it is when you love someone and you are hurt by this love, how your heart is in such pain. Jesus has said in rosary after rosary, “My greatest agony was not the wounds to My body, but it was the suffering to My most Sacred Heart, the heart that loves and wants to be loved.’

9. And so why are the football games so crowded? Why do people spend so much money to go to hear singers but our Almighty waits many times in the tabernacles of this world waiting for the precious souls to come? It is in this chapel that we should tell Him how fervently we love Him, the King of all kings on His throne in the tabernacle, that we should open up our heart at this moment and thank the Almighty God for the gift of Himself given to us.

10. We are as blind men and we do not see. Jesus speaks to us in the scriptures. Some of the language is veiled. We must go to the heart of our Mother and pray to the Holy Spirit that we will see more and more, that we will know our beloved God more and more. For to know Him is to love Him. We must pray for the light to shine in our hearts, the light of knowing God and loving Him with the most fervent love.

The Scourging at the Pillar

1. This is an excerpt from the Mass Book. In this experience, I was given the great intensity in the presence of God and I wrote on December 17th, 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.

I was fused and absorbed in You, feeling complete and satisfied.

This is heaven on earth: to be merged as one with Divinity, although remaining distinct from God, to take our feeble hearts, our lowly status and to unite ourselves with the Divine, Almighty, powerful God and in this union to be meshed with Him, that His power dominates and our humanity reaches its heights of fulfillment in this union, in this oneness with Him.” (Mass Book, December 17, 1995 , The Earth Stopped and Touched Heaven)

2. “The place Jesus took me was into 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 this embrace, and I only existed in Him. The power of the Almighty God enveloped me, and I only existed in Him. There was no fear, for I was existent in this Almighty Being. My heart was wrapped in the eternal embrace of this Supreme Being. The security, the power I know was His deep presence in which I existed.” (Mass Book, December 18, 1995, In the Deepest Recesses of His Heart)

3. And so He stood at the pillar. They had bound Him and they came to Him with their whips. They came forth to our beloved Jesus, our lover, and they whipped Him and they tore His flesh. And did He give? Yes, He gave. He gave His flesh, He gave His blood, He gave His all. He came to this earth, the Almighty God in greatest love for man, and He gave Himself.  He gave Himself as a sacrifice to His death on the cross and He gives to us this day Himself.  And how do we treat this great gift that the Almighty God gives to us?  What about the gifts that God is giving, the gift that He gives, His precious Son? He gives Himself to us in the Holy Eucharist. And how do we treat Him when we receive Him? Do we give Him our love? Do we tell Him how much we love Him? Do we spend the time after communion, the time that is so precious when He imprints on us knowledge of Himself, the most intimate knowledge of the Almighty God, the great gift given to us. Do we relish this time with Him after Communion and realize that it’s in that time the Almighty God will shower us with His divine life. And He will give us knowledge of Himself, special knowledge in this great act of intimacy and union with the Almighty God. This will be the era of great intimacy. When men will not run from church, when they will be so united in such intimacy to the Almighty God, where their hearts will burn for they will love God beyond everything else and they will love each other as the Father intends us to love. Think of this. All of us being united, loving God with such intense love and being one with each other where we care for each other, where we are not trying to get ahead of people we are just genuinely loving each other, as brothers, as the Father intended us to do. This will be this great era when men will know that they are truly brothers in Christ, where they will love God with the most fervent love and when they will love each other.

4. And how can we help? We can help by giving ourselves to the hearts of Jesus and Mary. We can pray this prayer every day for union with Jesus. We can go to Him in the holy sacrifice of the Mass and give ourselves, give ourselves as completely as we can, as a sacrifice, united with Jesus in this sacrifice to the Father.

5. And so why are we not one? Why is there such separation between us? We must die to our imperfections. We must go to Him in the holy sacrifice of the mass and surrender, give ourselves. And at that point of consecration, as we unite to His sacrifice to the Father, that we will ask to die to our imperfections, that we will pray to be more and more like Him. The more we are like Him, the more we will be one with each other. For it is because of our imperfections that we are separate from one another. We must die to our imperfections to be more like Him.

6. And so I say, “But Jesus, I do not want to give for I hurt. It hurts so many times when I give, and I give, and I give and I am rejected and unaccepted. But I see Jesus at the pillar with His hands tied and I see them whip Him and I see as His flesh is torn that He gave His flesh indeed for love of me. This is love. It is the gift of self given.

7. The word that I have heard all morning is “surrender, surrender, surrender.”  “Surrender to Me.” So I opened up the Blue Book and Jesus spoke to me in the Blue Book. “Oh, sweet surrender to the will of God, to know that He, too, uses this to our greater love of Him! All that we experience is to strengthen our relationship with Him! It is in these periods of longing that we realize how much we truly love Him.” (God's Blue Book II, February 4, 1994, After Mass The Ache in Your Heart Is for Union with Jesus)

8. And I open to another place in the Blue Book and He said, “The will of The Father I make clear to you. You want that security the world says you should have. The world is not secure. It is built on a sinking ship. It may look secure, but in one instant your ship could sink and if you are counting on yourself, what will you do?” (God's Blue Book II, January 18, 1994, 4:40 a.m. I Want Both Feet Off the Ground)

9. We hold on, we hold on to so many things that we do not even realize that we are attached to. Look at Jesus. They tied Him to the pillar, the Almighty God. At any moment, He could have released Himself. But for greatest love of us He allowed Himself to be tied to a pillar, to be beaten, to be bloodied. He surrendered Himself for love of us.

10. There are so many messages that Jesus gave in the second Blue Book on surrender. Let us look at our Almighty God, the Almighty God, all powerful, knowing all things, Almighty comes into this world a helpless baby in the womb of a woman.  He is tied to the pillar, the Almighty God. He is bound in a little baby body, He is bound to the pillar. He is hung on the cross and nailed to the cross. He is bound to the cross but we do not want to surrender. We do not want to give for we do hold on to things. We want that little bit of security that the world tells us that we must have. And He says to us, “I am the Almighty God. I am all powerful. I gave Myself for love of you. I allowed Myself to be tied to the pillar and to be nailed to the cross. I gave Myself to you. I died for you. I gave Myself for love of you and you are afraid, you are afraid to let go and let me run your life. I want union with you. I am asking you this day to pray the Prayer for Union With Jesus to give yourself as a sacrifice to unite to My sacrifice and to offer yourselves to the Father.” 

Song between decades: “I come to you with greatest love…”


The Crowning With Thorns

1. We even hold on to our imperfections. We do not give ourselves as we should to Jesus and let Jesus work in our hearts. We think that we are in control of everything, that we are able to rid ourselves of these imperfections. We must give ourselves to Jesus and willingly want to give up the imperfections. We must pray for His grace to help us.

2. I opened up the Blue Book again and Jesus spoke to me. And He says, “Do not dwell on how you should be perfect, that you are not and are disappointing to Me. That is Satan! You are not perfect. Admit it with humility. You are a creature that thinks of yourself. Selflessness is a constant struggle. Pray for strength and help to become selfless. This is how it is achieved. You do not do it. You pray and practice discipline in yourself. You are not perfect and I love you always. I love you in your faults, just as I love you when you are good. I love you unconditionally. It is pride to think you are perfect. You are not perfect. You are constantly struggling with the ego part of you. Pray to be absorbed in My heart. Pray for union with Me. Pray to die to yourself and remain only in My love.” (God's Blue Book II, February 20, 1994 6:30 a.m., Focus Only on the Love of Jesus)

3. And so I struggled and I struggled and I went to Him and I cried. And I said to Jesus, “Jesus, will You help me?” And He told me, He told me in a message on December 22nd that He would bring the shepherds to their knees. And that He has. Since December the 22nd, 1996 , He has brought me to my knees and He has brought me to the Blue Books in a way that I have never used them before.  For the answers are truly found from Jesus in these Blue Books. And He speaks to us, His words of love. And in His words of love He gives to us teachings in order to live in holiness, in order to live in loving God more and loving one another.

4. I am sorry so many times when I see myself fall and I keep going to Him more and more. But I am realizing more and more that it is in the holy sacrifice of the Mass,  it is in uniting in that sacrifice with Jesus to the Father, that at that moment when I give myself to Him, that I will die to many imperfections if I surrender and let go. For it is in that moment, I feel His presence so strong.  And then He gives Himself to me in the Holy Eucharist and He wraps me in His Divine love and it makes me cry.  For to have the presence of the Almighty God is greater than all treasures to be found on this earth. And I hear Him lament about the souls that run from the church after Communion. And I understand more fully what it is to give yourself and to be hurt, what it is for Jesus to give Himself completely, the Almighty God to us and to be treated with such indifference and  such lack of love from the cold hearts that exist in this world.  The hearts are, oh, so cold in this world today. But the Heart of Jesus is warm and on fire for love of men. And He is giving us the grace and He is giving us these messages that our hearts too will be turned to hearts of love and on fire for Him.  For He is alive and He is truly present in this room with us and He is longing for our love. Will we turn our hearts over to Him, will we surrender and give ourselves, or will we remain as the cold hearts in this world?  For He longs for a heart that is filled with love to come to Him and to share their love with Him.  He is alive and He wants our love.

5. I would like to read to you from March of 1994. This was exactly three years ago today and I remember this as if it happened only minutes ago. For I went to church and my heart was in such anguish and suffering as He allowed me to suffer so many times for the souls that do not love Him. And I went there and I heard Jesus call out. He says,

Jesus speaks: I died for you, sweet one. I allow you to suffer. This is suffering. You are given this to know how I suffered. You I only give such little things. I suffered, sweet one. I suffered, bloodied, bruised and beaten. Blood rolled down My cheeks. My head was pierced with sharp thorns. They spat on Me. They whipped Me. They beat Me on My head, My precious head. They hit Me on My thorns and the pain was so intense--the piercing thorns! I was slapped hard by these senseless ones. Oh, such evil in the hearts of those who beat Me, the Son of God!

My whole Body ached from head to toe. I suffered so, My child. You will never know how I suffered for love of you. I am God and I loved all My precious ones to My death--and they ignore Me!

Oh, how I suffer from this wounded heart. They will never know what love I have to give them. They will never know how I, God, love them. They are so busy with their worldly lives!

You must tell them how I wait for them. I wait. I want them to come and I will give them such love! Tell them, Rita, tell them! Your discontent is from what emotions I give you and you keep them inside. I want all to know Me and My love. I am crying out to you, little one. Tell them, tell them. Do not waste any time. I am crying out for you to spread this message. 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!

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.

I loved all My beloved ones to My death. I love you this way this day. I am Jesus. I am begging you to not hold back this emotion.

Oh, child, My beloved ones are blind and are going down the road that leads to nowhere. You must preach My message. You must distribute My letters. You must tell all how I wait here!” (God's Blue Book II, March 13, 1994, My Heart Aches for You)

6. And I went from the church and I was in such suffering as He allowed me to suffer. Every Sunday I would go to the church from 5-6 (p.m.). And He said He allowed me to suffer on Saturday and Sundays especially, because of the neglect He received from so many that went to church on Sunday and did not even have a thought for Him when He gave Himself to them.

7. Jesus speaks:  And so I cry out to you this day, My beloved ones. I am asking you to help to spread the messages in God’s Blue Book Two. For in this book I am telling My beloved souls of My burning love for them. It is in these letters that they will know that I am alive and that I am waiting and that I am longing, that I am truly present in the tabernacle and I give Myself to them in the Holy Eucharist. And I long for those moments after communion, for those moments when you come and you spend this time with Me and you tell Me how much you love Me. I am Jesus. I am alive and I am waiting for you. Will you spread this message to the far ends of the earth? There will be a time when men will love Me with the greatest love. Many souls will be lost. I am calling you, the apostles, to carry this message to the ends of the earth and to tell men of the fire of My love, the fire that will warm their hearts. So many will know the fire of hell, the fire of everlasting damnation. What you do with your life this day, how you spend your life helping to spread this message to the world will make the difference to so many souls for I am magnifying all of your efforts. And the souls will know My love because you went into the world and told the world how I loved them.

8. And the King will reign on His throne. All will come and they will worship and adore Him. They will kiss the ground and bend low. They will prostrate themselves and they will know God in a way that they have never known God before. And they will have the most intimate love affair with the Almighty God sharing in His deep burning love for them.

9. Hail Mary…

10. Hail Mary…

The Carrying of the Cross

1. This is a message from August the 23rd, 1993. Jesus spoke, “

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

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

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

I am the true Bread come down from heaven. He who eats My Flesh will have life forever. For the drink I give you is My Blood and food you eat is My Body. Who would lay down his life for a friend? I did, for you. I love you this much, child. Forget about those who reject you. You have My life that I gave you and I give you life eternal.”  (Blue Rosary Book, August 23, 1993, On His Passion)

2. And so He carried the cross on His back laden with our sins. He suffered for us. Do you know what it is to suffer for another? Do you know what it is?  Do you know how it was for Jesus to carry the weight of the sins of the world on His back?

3. Think of how we feel when somebody makes us mad, if they can make us mad. But we feel as if someone hurt us or someone did something to us. Think of how we feel inside. Jesus willingly took on the cross, He took on the weight of the sins of the world. He carried the sufferings on His back.

4. And how does He tell us that we are to love one another? He tells us that we are to love one another as He loved us. And how did He love us? He gave His life for us. Do we love our brothers that we would give our life for them?

5. Jesus speaks:  It is in the cross, it is in the crosses that I give to you that you learn the lessons that I want to teach to you. But so many abandon the cross and they do not learn a lesson. And so I must try to teach them again.  You must bear with your crosses and you must identify with My cross. You must realize that it is in carrying your crosses that you learn the greatest lessons in dealing with the people that irritate you, the people that make you suffer, that you learn how to love. I am teaching you this day in your life, in all of the circumstance of your life, you are being taught My lessons of love. I am molding you and shaping you into My soldiers of love. Do not give up the cross. You must love, you must not be angry with your brother. You must love them when they hurt you and when they persecute you. I am teaching you the way to love.

6. But we kick and we holler and we complain and we give our cross many times to others, when we could carry the cross ourselves and we could gain much grace. But it is so hard. And He says, “It is hard. Look into My eyes as I carried the cross. See the blood as it rolled down My face, as it rolled into My eyes. See the cross as I carried the cross and fell to the ground and My chin hit the earth. See the cross as they poked at Me and I scarcely could move, but I got up and I continued to the hill where they crucified Me.”

How are you this day? Do you give up your cross or do you carry the cross?  For it is in the cross that there is the glory. It is in the death that there is the life.  It is in the darkness that there is the light and although we can not see for we feel our eyes are crusted over and we are blinded. Slowly, very slowly the light steals across the sky and we see the brightness of the new day. Slowly, very slowly as we struggle through the deepest cave, there is the opening at the end where the light shows through. He allows us many times to suffer and then we go to Him in front of the tabernacle and after communion and in one second He outpours His most intimate love and it was as if all the suffering was worth those moments of intimacy when He gave us His special divine touch. For He is alive, He is alive and He is giving to us great grace to draw us ever closer to His heart on fire for love of us. Oh, Jesus, how I love Thee. But it is so hard so many times. I love Thee with all my heart and I want to be so close to you.  But I see myself struggle and I hear you say to me, “No one is perfect.  I am giving to you the grace to handle all the difficulties in your life. You will struggle. I love you, I love you however you come to Me.” And I know this, for He has revealed this to me.  I know that the more I go to the holy sacrifice of the Mass, the more that I truly beg Him to help me to die to my imperfections, that He will help me, that He will help me. I depend on Him.

7. God knows that we are not perfect. And at the beginning of every Mass we tell Him how sorry we are for our sins. I remember one time going to Mass and feeling so unworthy. And I went and then they said to be sorry for our sins and to say, “Lord, have mercy, Christ, have mercy, Lord, have mercy.” And I thought, “Jesus wants me to offer myself as a sacrifice.  But in this mass, I can tell Him how I am a sinner and I am sorry for my sins.” I want to be a holy sacrifice, I want to unite with Him, I want to be like Him. But it is a struggle, it is truly a struggle. But I know after the dark, dark, black, black night that there is the morning light. After the death, there is the resurrection. And He outpours His life to us and we know Our Divine Lord lives.

8. Jesus speaks:  My beloved ones, Satan is a prowling lion that is prowling this earth wanting to devour you. He wants your soul and he wants the souls of all My beloved ones. I am aiding you in helping to spread My love, in helping to spread the Shepherds of Christ movement. You must pray for the priests. Pray fervently for the priests. Pray as Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.  You must pray your prayers as often as you can. Pray as often as you can before the tabernacle. It is through your prayers that many things will be accomplished.

I know, Jesus, what you are asking of us is to spread this movement to the far corners of the earth. And I know that the bombs are flying and the bombs will fly. And I know that Satan works on the weakest link to help stir up much confusion and division. He works on the people that do not have a fervent prayer life. Satan works in order to try to stop us. For he does not want the movement to spread and he does not want souls to love God and he wants souls for hell. So I know this from what Jesus has told us, that we must pray fervently, seriously at least an hour a day, alone with Jesus in greatest intimacy for as long as we assume our role as apostles. As long as we go out, Satan will work on us to try to stop us and it is the ones that are not spending the intimate time with Jesus that he will use. This time is so precious with our beloved Jesus, preferably before the tabernacle, if not at home, to spend some quiet time with Jesus every day. For it is in that time that He helps us to sort out the information that we have taken in and He gives us the knowledge that we need to know how to handle the problems in our life.

9. It is in this time alone with Him, if we write to Him, if we read His letters in the Blue Book, if we spend time just being with Him that we will learn about intimacy with Jesus, that our life with Him will change more and more into a greater intimacy after communion and during the mass. For we will know Him as a Person that truly loves us.

10. Hail Mary…

Jesus Dies on the Cross

1. This is from the Mass Book, December the 19th, 1996, There is a Man on the Cross. “God wants union with us. He wants fire. Many try to love God with a cold heart. They tell Him words that they think they should say that are loving.

When one loves, they do not need to be prompted to say words. From the depth of their being they cry out their words of love. It is a cry from within, from the fire within their chest, behind the words. The words are burning in their chest and must be released because of the fire behind them.

We are as blind men. We do not see the great gifts that God gives to us. It is as if we stand by the shore of the sea and throw little words at Jesus. We must not be afraid to jump into the water and be completely immersed in His love. He was consumed with such love for us. He gave Himself to His death on the cross.”  (Mass Book, December 19, 1996, There is a Man on the Cross)

2. “There is a man on a cross and he tells us so many things. He does not have to speak. When we study Him on the cross, He speaks to us with His pierced hands. ” (Mass Book, December 19, 1996, There is a Man on the Cross)

3. “His head covered with blood, His body withered and beaten. He speaks to us of His undying love. Oh, beloved Savior, I am blind. I am selfish. I do not see the great reservoir of love that you give to Me. I see the man dying on the cross. How do I see Him?” (Mass Book, December 19, 1996, There is a Man on the Cross)

4. “Do I see the body of a man, a live man? Do I see His labored breath? Do I see His chest move as His Heart beats within? Do I see the real skin of a man? Do I see the real blood He shed? Do I see the light that silhouettes His withered body? Do I see the Light of the World? Do I see the tender skin of an infant laid on bare wood in the manager and then the torn, lacerated, bloodied skin of this man?

This is love! There is a man on the cross. There is a child born to us today. He is the Light of the World. His light is shining in the darkness, but people do not see. They see the wood, but they view it for the beauty it will create in their newly decorated living rooms.

The cross is not a thing of the past, the cross is with us today. We carry it on our backs as He showed us we would, but we try to take it off and throw it away.

It is in the cross there is the resurrection. It is by meditating on the crucifix, we see His undying love. We must open up our eyes and see. Pray for vision to see clearly the man Who gave Himself for love of us, Our Divine Lord.”  (Mass Book, December 19, 1996, There is a Man on the Cross)

5. It is in the death that there is the resurrection. It is after the dark night that we see the light of day. It is in going to the holy sacrifice of the mass and uniting in this sacrifice with Jesus to the Father that we are transformed more and more and that we unite, in the deepest intimacy with Him, in the Holy Eucharist. We are to be soldiers of love, soldiers that are going across this earth with hearts that are warm and are filled with love. There are many cold hearts in the world.  If we go to the world and we are confronted by these cold hearts and we clam up and we close up, we will not spread His light and His fire into the darkness.  We must realize that love is giving, that we must give when it hurts, that we must give, and give, and give. There is a man that is hanging on the cross and He does not speak any words. But if we study His body, if we see His arms outstretched and nailed with the nails, we will see that He gave His all to His death, He gave the last drop of His blood and the last beat of His heart.

6. Jesus speaks:  Can I count on you, My beloved ones? Will you carry the message of My love into this world? Will you carry the message of My burning heart to the cold hearts? For so many people have turned almost into robots, the way that they talk to one another. I want love and oneness, I want you to be one.

7. It is in the Shepherds of Christ movement as we give our hearts to Jesus and Mary that we unite in this oneness in Their Hearts. It is in the Holy Eucharist that He gives Himself to us, that we become one in Him, and that we become so united with one another.

8. This is from Ezekiel (34: 11-16) “For the Lord Yahweh says this: Look, I myself shall take care of my flock and look after it. As a shepherd looks after his flock when he is with his scattered sheep, so shall I look after my sheep. I shall rescue them from wherever they have been scattered on the day of clouds and darkness. I shall bring them back from the peoples where they are: I shall gather them back from the countries and bring them back to their own land. I shall pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the inhabited parts of the country. I shall feed them in good pasturage; the highest mountains of Israel will be their grazing ground. There they will rest in good grazing grounds; they will browse in rich pastures on the mountains of Israel .  I myself shall pasture my sheep, I myself shall give them rest -- declares the Lord Yahweh. I shall look for the lost one, bring back the stray, bandage the injured and make the sick strong. I shall watch over the fat and the healthy.  I shall be a true shepherd to them.”

9. We are the Shepherds of Christ Associates. We are the apostles that He is calling this day to carry out this mission, to carry the light into the darkness, to pray for the priests, to pray for the renewal of the church and the world. It is through our prayers, our prayers and our prayer chapters, it is through our prayers in front of the tabernacle, in doing what He has asked us to do as Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart, that this will be accomplished. For Satan is so strong. Jesus gave Himself to His death on the cross. This is Jesus’ instrument to help in the renewal of the church and the world. He is asking us to give ourselves and to help spread this movement to the far corners of the earth.  And He will give to us great grace that we will be ever closer to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and we will know this intense love and we will know Him, in the deepest love, within our hearts. And we will be joined in one mind and one heart, as the Father intended. For this is how God wants us to be. The Father look to the earth, He wants to see us as one happy family. Jesus gave Himself to His death on the cross for love of us. He has told us that we must love God and love one another. Jesus does not want cold hearts, words spoken from the surface. He wants us to love Him with our whole heart, our whole soul, and our whole being, to love one another with the deepest love, and to give ourselves.  For love is giving. For we see that He is love and He gave His all to His death on the cross.

10. Our strength is in Him. We must go to Him. He is the power, He is the might we must give ourselves. We must surrender ourselves. It is in going to the Holy Eucharist, particularly that He outpours His grace to us. It is in spending those moments after Communion that He implants on us special intimate knowledge of Himself.

Jesus speaks:  I give to you these secrets, these secrets of My heart, in these messages that I have not revealed before in human history to help bring about the reign of My most Sacred Heart. This will be a time of great intimacy. I am asking you to help to spread My messages of love to the far ends of the earth, to help Me to spread these letters of love. You are My apostles. Will you say “no”? I have called you by name. You are My chosen one. I am giving to you grace that has not been given to the greatest saints. You will know a time of great intimacy with Me. Will you help Me, My beloved ones, to spread My letters of love to this earth?

There will be one flock and one shepherd. The King will reign on His throne and all will bow down and fervently love Him. They will kiss the earth and they will love one another with the greatest love. There will not be this separation and this division. We will be one happy family as the Father intended. For He came and He gave Himself for love of us. This is love. There is a man hanging on the cross and He does not speak a word. But if we study the cross, we will know a little more of how He loves us.  

Song:  “I come to you with greatest love…”  

Jesus speaks:  I am asking you to read the messages from God’s Blue Book II, to read the messages on surrender. You must realize that you are not doing the work that I am the one that is doing the work through you.
