Mary: My Son painted your earth to
see the purity of a heart, so white and beautiful. My children, when you
do not even know why you act, in ways that are isolating, angry,
hateful, prideful seeking power, and control from past triggered
emotions, suppressed memories, that need healing, impulses that make
nothing but darkness and hatred, do you not see the hole in your hearts?
You are to have as your goal of all your actions the goal of your
eternal salvation in heaven. You are to live in unity and love with one
another and God in relationships under obedience to God and those having
authority over you. You need conversion in your hearts. You need an
intimate, interior life, united to God. I tell you to spread the
devotion to Jesus' Sacred Heart, now. Pray for conversion. Die to those
evil weeds in your hearts that block intimacy with God. Come to my pure
and Immaculate Heart. My Spouse, the Holy Spirit, will form you more and
more in the image of Jesus. Use the Blue Books, His letters of Love. I
will take you to the Heart of My Son, Jesus. I am Mary your Mother,
Mother of the Church, Mother of Jesus, Spouse of the Holy Spirit.
R. Forgiveness and Peace
Jesus showed us how He lived a life
of forgiveness. He forgave those who
offended Him. He carried the cross for
our sins. Jesus was obedient to His
Father, Jesus' life was perfect and
He was all pure.
Jesus is the way, the truth and the
life. Sinning and tricks can became
a way of life. The person may need
deep healing from wounds of the
past and can keep provoking others
to get a reaction from those having
to deal with the wounded person.
The wounded person can then see any
interaction even a begging to quit
doing horrendous actions as abusive.
Interaction later can be all negative
just to get attention and act out
the victim role that needs healing.
God intends us to be formed more and
more in His image and likeness. A man
with cancer cannot ignore his condition –
a person so wounded as a child where
big chucks of development, interacting
with others were left out in their life
due to abuse, secrets, survival tactics
learned and used needs healing and
cannot ignore their actions that are
destructive in their own life and destructive
to others involved with them.
Unfinished business of the past keeps
surfacing in an attempt to get resolved.
We must seek deeper union with God –
be working on the defects of character
we have. Old memories, emotions,
impulses can be triggered without
warning and a person is responsible
for their actions for their behavior –
God intends us to walk hand-in-hand
with each other and work together in
the building of the Kingdom of God.
A person that seeks to do what ever
they want and only trust themselves
is headed for destruction when they
fail to have accountability and responsibility
for their actions.
We see in the life of Jesus, His
unselfishness, His eyes on the Father's
will – His goal was the goal – doing His
Father's will in love. God is love and
love is so beautiful – obedience is
the way – we are accountable before
God for our actions. No man is an
Jesus was unselfish, Jesus was
forgiving, Jesus loved others and
His life shows us His love given to
Jesus carried the cross for our sins
of pride and anger and envy and
jealousy. Jesus carried the cross, ladden
with the sins of slothfulness and
hatred and lies.
We cannot ignore the commandments
of God – we are commanded to love God
and love others as ourselves. A wounded
child can develop bad habits of the
deadly sins, nurse anger, ignore the
commandment to love God and neighbor
and provoke negative interactions with others
so they can blame them for abuse
when the innocent person did nothing
at all. Abusing one's fellow man
God commands us to love, is
acting unloving and hateful to
Jesus. God says what we do to others
we do to Him.
Accountability for our sins and
responsibility for our actions is the
way we are to live before God. We are
to ask for forgiveness from God for our
sins and ask for mercy and with
a firm purpose of amendment work
to sin no more that way against God.
Mark 7: 6-13
He answered, ‘How rightly Isaiah
prophesied about you hypocrites in the passage of scripture:
This people honours me
only with lip–service,
while their hearts are far from me.
Their reverence of me is worthless;
the lessons they teach
are nothing but human commandments.
You put aside the commandment of God
to observe human traditions.’ And he said to them, ‘How ingeniously
you get round the commandment of God in order to preserve your own
tradition! For Moses said: Honour your father and your mother,
and, Anyone who curses father or mother must be put to death.
But you say, "If a man says to his father or mother: Anything I have
that I might have used to help you is Korban (that is, dedicated to
God)," then he is forbidden from that moment to do anything for his
father or mother. In this way you make God’s word ineffective for
the sake of your tradition which you have handed down. And you do
many other things like this.’
R. God has a plan for our lives. We are
to live in unity and serve Him as a
child - with love in our hearts and
obedience. We are to live under God's
commandments and precepts and we
can't ignore God's laws and act like
Adam and Eve did when they outright
disobeyed God. God cast them from
the Garden of Paradise –
We see with eyes that are veiled and
we know in our hearts greater and greater
love we cannot ever explain when we seek
with all our hearts to love and serve Him
and others as ourselves. We are building
relationships of unity with God and others.
We are commanded by God to let go
of ways rebelling against His commandment
of love and to love with a heart growing
in love and unselfishness.
The devil works a little more aggressively
every day. We see how wise Solomon was
and we see how he went to having a
harem of foreign wives and was
practicing pagan idolatry because
of this. With this came division,
discord and sin. Sin blinds a
man when he is not accountable
and responsible for his actions and
he walks in greater and greater darkness
The man who is happy does what God
wants him to do. Serving oneself as an
idol and opposing God is real misery.
We teach others by our actions.
Jesus tells us to follow Him. God
gives forgiveness to the penitent
heart. We must confess our sins
and be sorry for them. Adam and
Eve sinned and they sere sent out
of the Garden of Eden.
The Good Shepherd shows how
Jesus cares for the sinner who repents
and He carries them on His shoulders
and takes care of them.
We see Cain and Abel. Cain gave
into the evil – Abel was good. Does
this remind you of the Good and Bad
thief next to Jesus on the cross? We have
a free will – we can obey God's will
or rebel against God. We must follow
God and do His will – we have to have
endurance and humility to do this.
We are to live in love according to the
Father's will and to be kind like
Adam and Eve's descendants were
corrupted and we see the punishment
by God in the great flood. God gives
us the waters of baptism – we can
rebel against God even when God
is so good to us.
God speaks to us in the scriptures.
In many of the scriptures God tells us
about the happy man. How could a man
rebelling and opposing God - really
be happy –
We are like people in the choir of
God – the person rebelling and doing
their own sour songs in the choir –
stands out and hurts the beauty
of the choir.
Look at the family – be it a
community of nuns or brothers or
a real family of children and parents –
the rebellious one singing sour notes
of rebellion hurts everybody in the
family – Their independence and rebellion
We are on the stage of life. The Father's
special family in our vocation. We
are to sing like a choir under God
and obedient to God – giving our
hearts in love – in unity – in service
Who wants the independent, bully,
living to hurt others for attention –
And God watches the performance
from above and He is love – He
gives and gives and gives and
takes us to new heights – life and
love and joy is in Him – in serving
Him – in being united like the choir
in our vocation under God.
James 1: 18-27
By his own
choice he gave birth to us by the message of the
truth so that we should be a sort of
first-fruits of all his creation.

who fails to keep a tight rein on the
tongue can claim to be religious; this
is mere self-deception; that person's
unspoilt religion, in the eyes of God
our Father, is this: coming to the help
of orphans and widows in their
hardships, and keeping oneself
uncontaminated by the world.

man by the

putting spittle on his eyes and laying his
hands on him, he asked, 'Can you see
anything?' The man, who was beginning to
see, replied, 'I can see people; they look
like trees as they walk around.' Then he
laid his hands on the man's eyes again and

see everything plainly and distinctly. And

R. To be close to God we must die to the
ways not likened to Him. To have intimacy
with God we must turn from sin.
God is all holy. We must strive to

our actions as we lie about the
truth and lie about what is
wrong and act like it's right because

R. Jesus suffered for our sins.
Jesus is the Suffering Servant –
He loves us – He tells us to take

We were created in His image

Psalm 33: 1–15
Shout for joy, you upright;
praise comes well from the honest.
Give thanks to Yahweh on the lyre,
play for him on the ten–stringed lyre.
Sing to him a new song,
make sweet music for your cry of victory.
The word of Yahweh is
all he does springs from his constancy.
He loves uprightness and justice;
the faithful love of Yahweh fills the earth.
By the word of Yahweh the heavens
by the breath of his mouth all their array.
He collects the waters of the sea like a dam,
he stores away the abyss in his treasure–house.
Let the whole earth fear Yahweh,
let all who dwell in the world revere him;
for, the moment he spoke, it was so,
no sooner had he commanded, than there it stood!
Yahweh thwarts the plans of nations,
frustrates the counsels of peoples;
but Yahweh's own plan stands firm for ever,
his heart's counsel from age to age.
How blessed the nation whose God is Yahweh,
the people he has chosen as his heritage.
