Prayer for Grace for our Country

Dear Father united to Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present, celebrated around the world, in the Holy Spirit. We offer up all we do united to the Mass. We unite in one mind and one heart as members of the mystical body of Christ, with Christ our head in the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary, through the powerful intercession of Mary with all the angels and saints and souls in purgatory, and we beg for the saving grace, for our country, the United States. Please help us. We further pray for unity to always do the will of God in love. We spread the Blood of Jesus on the leaders and people of the United States and cast the devil into hell. We consecrate our country to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart and all our dioceses, and beg for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. God help us. We pray for our families, the priests, the Church and the world. In the Name of Jesus please hear us, we pray. We pray for our new president as he takes office. We pray that we are united as one nation under God to work together in love as God wants.

                May 2, 2017

                R. Living in the Moment –

                Base your decisions on – is it the will of God –
                    Not fear!

                A person doing God's will is not into
                    control, power, manipulation of
                    others for their own attachments –
                    they are inordinately attached to –

                A person close to Jesus is not trying to
                    fight with others for combat –
                    they are meek in heart like Jesus.

                A person in love with Jesus is grateful
                    full of appreciation –

                A person in love with God and others
                    wants unity – not division.

                A person in love with Jesus loves to give,
                    to give of themselves in love, to
                    do the will of God in love.

                Questions

                    Am I angry?
                    Am I self-centered?
                    Do I work in love with others and
                    Do I know God works through others –
                        helping me in my life?
                    Do I trust God?
                    Do I trust others?
                    When I am wrong do I promptly admit it?
                    Do I obey authority?
                    Do I argue with authority?
                    Do I disregard authority and
                        demean authority –
                    Do I feel sorry for myself most of the time?
                    Do I work on my defects of character and
                        want God to remove them?
                    Am I resentful of others?
                    Am I comfortable with authority figures?
                    Do I accept personal criticism?
                    Do I have sick abandonment needs?
                    How is my self-esteem?
                    I rely on God for my Power –
                    I do not live slavishly dependent relationships.

                The past is part of our lives – we
                    can learn from the past –
                    We see the past and work on
                    what we need to –
                    We don't lie about it –
                    Ignore it and punish others –

                We are not addicted to Misery.
                We trust God and trustworthy others.

                We experience our feelings – living
                    in the moment.

                We don't close the door on the past.

                We must learn to live in the Now.

                Joy is a fruit of the Holy Spirit –

                We pray for joy.

                We live in the present moment.

                A person that is dysfunctional wants
                    to try to force dysfunctional
                    relationships on others –

                We learn conflict - resolution which
                    we may have never learned
                    in childhood and past
                    addictive relationships.
 

Matthew 18: 3

Then he said, ‘In truth I tell you, unless you change and become like little children you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven.

 

                Jesus: I give you a land flowing with milk and
                    honey. I have rescued you. The devil wants
                    to hurt you and he wants to take you
                    from My work.

                    I come to you and stand before you
                clothed in the white robes of victory.
                I am Jesus. I am all powerful.
                Beams of light are coming from
                My hands, I am there, Rita,
                I am here, I am your God –

                Do you see My bright light, My child –
                    My power surrounds you – Be
                    not afraid –
                    See yourself wrapped as a child in
                    a blanket of love –
                    I am with you in every trial –
                    I love you –
                    I am all powerful –
                    I am the Light of the world –

                The Lord is my light and my salvation –

                You cried to Me and I heard you child –

                A person can have a closed heart –
                like a wall – like a rock wall –
                they refuse to listen and their
                heart becomes lifeless from
                lack of love and anger and pride
                and selfishness.

                Song: Why Do We Hurt the Ones We Love


 

                Jesus: My child let your heart be full of
                    My love – red and warm
                    and secure – open and filled
                    with golden light.

                You are surrounded in My light!

                I love you so much –

                I outpour My healing touch to you

                My strength is upon you –

                Rays of light and warmth penetrate
                    your troubled souls –

                Come Holy Spirit, Come and fill the hearts of
                    the faithful.

                Take it in – Soak in My warmth,
                   My love, My power –

                This is the healing you need –

                I am all Good –

                Live in My love –

                Be not afraid.

                Cast the devil away –

                I love you My child –

                I stand by your bed –

                You are a light of the world –
                    The light shines in the darkness –
                    Walk in the light –

   


 

                R. We are one body in Him, we are one.

                Satan wants to divide us –

                In heaven there is complete oneness –
                We are drawn like steel to a magnet to God.
                We hunger after this union with God –
                We seek love with our brother –
                We seek to be united with others
                    when we are one in Him.

 


 

                R. God has an ancient plan here –
                    we are part of this –

                There is only
                    one Sr. Faustina
                    one Padre Pio
                    one St. Margaret Mary
                    one St. Claude de Columbiere
                    one St. Ignatius

                This is an ancient plan in
                    salvation history –

                This is the same plan as Fatima

                There was World War I
                                World War II

                Lenin and Stalin and all the affairs in 1917.

                This is God's Plan – Mary appeared at the
                    Holy Spirit Center, appeared in Clearwater.

                We have to read these messages for the
                    content and quit thinking we
                    have the right to try to get
                    messages to please the people now –

                This is the Plan –

                We are the Players Now –

                God is the Divine Conductor

                God's Plan!!

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Don't Question God

December 31, 1993 - Early Morning

Jesus speaks:  I am the way, the truth and the life. He who abides in Me will have the light of life. I am Jesus, Son of God. I am the most important thing you do every day. If you are tired, then you are focusing on the wrong things. Be ready, for your Savior awaits you and you are His messenger.

    I am Jesus, Savior of the World. I am ready for you. Listen and write My words. I am the light that shines in this dark world. I come to you in the night and you know it is Me. I come in such silence and no one knows that I am surrounded by angels. No one knows so many things that you do not see. Faith is the answer for My brothers. Faith is the answer for you, for when you do not see you still believe. When there is no proof, you are still absolutely sure that I am here. This faith does not go unrewarded. Where there are no proofs, you believe in Me. Blessed are they who have not seen and yet believe.

    What I reveal to you here, I do in your heart. My connectedness to you is in your heart. I do not need the senses. Man wants God to be like them. Do not ask to have God explained in human terms. This, My child, is surely in the realm of the spirit. Things of God are not like the things of man. I communicate to you as I am. Others want you to explain to them just how it is.

    Your human minds do not fathom the ways of God. To ask My messenger to answer your human questions is to ask her to tell you why stars shine, why a baby is conceived in the mother. In the end there is an element of mystery which is beyond words. Don't ask her to tell you why and how she writes these letters. She writes these letters by the power I have. She writes these letters for Me. She writes these letters because I am dictating them to her for you. She sits, half asleep, and writes such clear lessons in faith. And, you My brothers, ask for explanations? I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. I am He Whose boot strap you are unworthy to tie, yet I make Myself so personal to you in Holy Communion. But, little ones, I am God. You cannot comprehend one little speck of My ways. Your human mind is so limited. Do not try to make sense of Me in human terms. I write these letters to bridge a gap between you and Me.

    I am this personal to you, but My ways are not your ways and, though I try to make you understand some of the mystery, you cannot in your humanness explain the ways of God. Go ahead and try, child. It is a waste of your time. Do not ask My messengers for explanations that you will understand. You will not ever on this earth understand any of what is happening here. My ways are the ways of God. What is happening here is a miracle.

    You ask too many questions and you, in your humanness, expect too many answers. I am the God of your Fathers. They never knew such a God. I was the same God to them and I spoke to similar people to open up Myself to them, but you have been given a great, great gift indeed in these letters. Do you question and question or do you study and become wise. Study My words and accept all I give you with faith.

    Be blessed for the faith you show. Your faith will save you in this sick world. I am here, all right. I am in the Eucharist, Body and Soul. Would you like for Me to explain the real presence. How can I, in your earthly form, explain such things to you? Wake up. I give you a gift and you spend your time asking how, why, where, when. I give you this day a gift of My love for you. You will not understand the ways of God but, from these letters, I will become as real as the nose on your face. You can busy yourself asking questions and miss the miracle of My coming to you in these letters.

    I come to you, you who are hungry and thirsty and you are waiting for more. To those who listened, much was imparted to them. To those who remained blind, nothing was gained. They try to explain God in human terms. I cannot be explained to your liking, My child. To do so is just silly.

    I am God. I am Who Am. I am the Son of God. I am Human, but I am also Divine. You will not understand My divinity. You are a human. Be glad for what you are given. Pray for faith. So many souls will be lost for their stubbornness to have every situation explained. I will not ever be explained to you. If you do not go out on a limb, you will miss the sunset. The glories that you need to seek are to be seen at the end of the limb.

    You do not know why, in your heaviness, the limb does not break. You will not understand, in your humanness, My ways. I impart to you many gifts. Do not try to explain My ways in your human ways. It is a futile task. It is impossible. It is not human. It is divine. Accept this miracle on faith and reap such a reward! God-made-man talks to you, not to the messenger. Talks to you! Do you want an explanation? You will not understand My divinity in your humanness, so quit trying and get about the job of listening to My words with your heart.

    I will work in your hearts in your quiet time with Me. You do not do this work, either. The more you look for explanations with Me, the more you miss Me. My ways are a mystery. I impart such little glimpses of Myself to you. They are in your hands, to burst forth later. Now you busy yourself with the work at hand. Come in silence and make yourself selfless. I will be the giver of many gifts. If you decide what gifts I will give you, you have missed the boat entirely. I give to you as you need.

    You are My babies. Babies do not tell their mothers of their needs. They wait and they are fed. They wait and they are changed. They wait and they are loved. Wait on the Lord. What you get is coming from Him Who loves you. I know all things. I know your needs. I am like the loving mother. I am God. I know your every need. Come and soak in the sunlight. Quit your questioning. Quit your asking for such things that you may never need. Turn yourself over like little babies, freshly born. They have soft little cries and are very dependent on their mothers. Come with your little cries but know that I, in the end, will give you all you need.

    Don't try to control Me. I am God. Who are you to come and think you will tell God what you need. I see the whole picture and I comprehend it as God. You see as in a tunnel and think you know so much. Come and make yourself putty in My hands. Remain formless and unattached. Remain a baby. Take all I give and do not ask questions. It is in your submissiveness to Me that you grow in Me. I dwell in you and I can operate from you. In your willfulness, I cannot come in. How can God act in a soul who is in control. If you are operating, I cannot.

    Oh, you have much to learn, but it is revealed in these letters how to become creatures of God. Most of your work is in submission to Me. Your biggest job is to die to yourself and live in Me. I am all powerful and I want to dwell in your breast. I want to possess your soul. I want to impart to you My love. I want to fill you to the brim with the things of God. All that is in the way of My working in you is yourself. If you hold onto self, you get yourself. To be of Me, you must let go of yourself. Come to My altar and sit silently before Me. Let Me work in your soul. Look for Me.

    I give to you according to your needs. I answer you according to the things of God. I give you gifts that you never knew possible, because your mind cannot imagine the things of God. Do not limit your soul by being in charge. The soul is in the image of God and God must deal with it. To try to feed your soul humanness is useless. Only God can feed the soul. Come to Him and let Him have full reign in your hearts. Don't try to decide what you need. You don't know of the needs of a soul. God is so good and so loving and He wants to give you what you need. Surrender to Him and be open to all He wants to do in you.    end of December 31, 1993

 

                Jesus says: I am revealing insights
                    into the Father's plan – you
                    must see the messages in their
                    entirety.

                Jesus says:

                    Not one willful person will stop
                        My Father's Plan. The devil
                        will work in pride and control.

                    I am revealing My Plan in these
                        letters and rosaries –

                    This is a main source of communication
                        for this world that will help
                        carry out the completion
                        of the Fatima message –

                R. Mary will crush the head of satan
                    with her heel –

                (1) Consecrate hearts to Jesus and Mary
                (2) Pray the Rosary
                (3) Make reparation to her heart –

                    Mary is (A) Mother
                                (B) Immaculate
                                (C) Virgin
                                (D) Mother of Church,
                                        priests and religious
                                (E) Mother of little children –
                                    We should love
                                        her images!!

                EMOTION     Hearts

                        Rosary
                        Mass
                        Role of Mary
                        Consecration

                Jesus: No words are to be altered
                    to suit this age.
                    These writings are a big
                        part of the Father's plan
                        for generations to come.

                You must organize all rosaries.
                    These are very important to
                    the spirituality of this world.

                R. Love is interaction

 

 


 

                R. Finding in the temple

                    Mary's little lost children
                    Jesus was lost for 3 days –
                    Many of Mary's children are locked
                        in the tomb of sin –
                    Mary wants to reach the dark hearts –
                        Mary wants to lead them back
                            to the light –
                            to her Son –
                            to His Heart –

                Mary: Oh little lost hearts – how tenderly I love you,
                    how I suffered for you – I
                    want you to come to the Heart of my Son Jesus.
                    Oh little lost hearts, I am Mary
                        your Mother –
                        I love you –

                To be locked in sin – is to be locked
                    in a tomb!

                R. Prayer:

                    I love You Jesus.
                    I love you Mary.
                    I am working for the Reign of Your Sacred Heart
                        and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.
                    God, strengthen me –
                    God – come to me –
                    God – I want to be one in Thee –
                    Come and live in my soul –

 

                From Blue Book 12

August 11, 1996

The Tainted Human Nature (excerpt)

Jesus: How else would the devil attack you but in the mind? I call you to holiness in your hearts. I call you to purity in your hearts. I call you to love, love of God, love of one another. You cannot control, you must surrender to Me.


 

 

Mary's Message
from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary:  I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

end of Mary's Message

 

                R. There was a raccoon in a cellar and the stench
                    or raccoon doesn't go away –

 
                Jesus: You have to deal with the past –
 
 

                Ask yourself:               

                What were the safe places in your house?

                What rooms were there with no tension?

                Was there love and understanding?

                Was there hugging for reassurance
                    as a little child?

                Was there unpredictable behavior?
                Was there unresolved conflicts?

                Did people solve problems in love
                    and to move ahead in strength?

                Were there games? Passive - Aggressive?
                    Abuse?

                Trust ended in abuse?

                Trust ended in hurt, anger – for No reason!

                Were there LOVE - HATE relationships?

                Or was there Love and Security – Peace –
                    Fairness?

                Were you guilty of a crime before you
                    even knew what you did –
                    then you act it out on innocent
                    others –

                Were they not there for you –
                    so now you have fear of abandonment –
                    always trying to resolve the hurt
                    on innocent others now!

 


 

                R. Cycles of Violence

                (1) building tension – stress accumulates

                (2) explosion – climax, violence, physical,
                    emotional

                (3) calm or honeymoon stage –
                    "I'm sorry"
                    Make promises they don't keep –
                    over and over again lasts max 24 to 48 hours

                In the advanced stages – as long as the
                    cycle goes on, it get worse and
                    worse –
                    It is easier to start a cycle almost
                    instantly to provoke and
                    start abuse.

                In the advanced stages, there can be constant abuse
                    and tension –
                    This cycle will never stop on its own.

                A person can find an excuse for why the other
                    or others deserve their lewd behavior.
                    They give themselves the excuse to do it.

                In the Honeymoon cycle – the person acts normal.
                    This makes the person abused feel "crazy"
                    because it looks like everything is okay.
                    No one is validating this erratic behavior.
                    This lack of validation intensifies the frustration
                        and ability to face the truth of what is happening.
                    After 24 hours or so the cycle repeats again and again.

                Some people love to be a VICTIM –
                    they need someone to blame for their victimization.

                Projection can be a problem –
                    A person can use projection on another in anger
                    for behavior they have inside themselves.
                    They can provoke the other as they
                        project their own bad behavior on them,
                        acting out as if the innocent other has their problem.
                    It is a real dumping affect, leading
                    to great frustration for the person being victimized.
                    The abuser may seek control, manipulation
                        and power –
                    They may stage provoking another, innocent other
                        to have drama and an adrenalin rush –
                    People can be addicted to excitement and seeking
                        an adrenalin rush at the expense of an innocent other.

 

                A Successful Vocation is Love

                    (1) Loving God

                    (2) Loving and respecting others in
                        their vocation –

                We need to go inside and deal with
                    the past – destructive habits –
                    not close the door on it –

                We Can Receive Healing Energy From God!

                In an Addictive Relationship
                    there is an enabler and an addicted person
                    and there are other innocent others involved.

                A person takes an innocent person
                    down for their sickness.

                They need recovery.

                A person addicted to Misery –
                    must give up being miserable.

                What are you familiar with?

                Refuse to Change

                What issues do you have that keep
                    you miserable?

                There can be prolonged and chronic
                    addiction to misery –

  Misery
Addiction

Not knowing we are loved!
Sexual or physical or emotional abuse!
Constant hollering and anger at the house.
 

                Different house – person forces
                    their dysfunction through control.

 


 

                R. Parenthood can be a playground or
                    a prison.

                Recovery must happen to learn
                    to live from a damaged
                    childhood –

                Misery Addiction

                A person can choose to stay miserable.

                Misery addiction –

                    The person does not have the right goal.
                    The person expects to be miserable the rest
                        of their life –

                How can they be normal –
                    when they are abnormal

                God's love –

                TRUTH

                Growth –

                Wanting to get others to help us change
                    bad habits –

                Learning to trust others that are
                    trustworthy

                Feeling SAFE

                Move away from their own misery

                Help somebody else –

                Focus on God and vocation

                What you don't heal from
                    you can act-out on others –

                You must be honest and trust
                    the people God put in
                    your life that are trustworthy.

                A person learned about men from
                    watching dad –

                A person learned about women
                    from watching mom –

                A person may fail to take responsibility – but
                    they must be responsible and accountable for
                    actions, if they want to live successfully.

                A person abused was disempowered –
                    they can live life-long trying
                    to get power back –

                They think it's normal to abuse
                    others in life –

                A person who was sexually abused
                    or physically abused can be
                    numb in their bodies –

                Think it's not safe to be normal!

                A person will choose to say "no" to the
                    person least threatening.

                A person can engage in black and
                    white thinking –
                    one way or the other –
                    Things are not all black and
                        all white

                A person can use passive-aggressive
                    because they could not express
                    rage from abuse in childhood –
                    very bad behavior patterns –
                    survival behavior from abuse –

                A person can be addicted to division,
                    chaos and confusion – used
                    to implement their dysfunctional
                    past and manipulate through
                    these destructive patterns –

                A person can live on a roller coaster –
                    addicted to the unpredictable because
                    they do not feel and want an
                    adrenalin rush

                Some people are abnormal and can't
                    relate to "calm" and "peace" –
                    or operate in the heart –

                If they have a feeling or memory –
                    they may start chaos

                Get in touch with the memories –
                    Addiction is because of pain and
                        that is how you are
                        handling it –

                Old survival tactics go on and on from
                    a dysfunctional home –
                    they must be dealt with –

                Recovery

                    Can't have intimate relationships
                    Some need approval
                    Have low self-esteem
                    Rigid
                    Don't express feelings
                    Stuff feelings
                    Keep secrets to protect themselves

                God is forgiving

                There was a break why a child stopped
                    trusting – kept secrets and
                    didn't talk – quit feeling –

                These stages after this, in growing
                    up, were stopped –

                People carry shame who were
                    shamed as a child –
                    they do it to themselves –
                    then get mad and punish others

                Children need to learn love –

                God the Father loves us –

                The Blue Books show us our
                    love in the Father's family –
 

         

         

        

            

                R. The Child takes on the characteristics
                    of the parent – In dysfunctional
                    homes – there must be
                    recovery for the individual.

                If there is abuse the brain can block
                    the trauma –

                A person can write to Jesus – tell Him
                    about their feelings of hurt and
                    pain –

                Then read the Blue Book –

                A person can live life-long and
                    never trust anyone –
 


 

                R. This is the Mighty Medicine.


 

                R. What can stop growth.

                    Denial about the truth –

                    Not trusting

                A person can be emotionally shut-down
                    from the childhood life –

                A person who is dysfunctional is like
                    living in a tug-of-war –

                A person who wants control –
                    can keep pushing down harder and
                    harder –
                    life becomes them controlling
                        so they can keep everybody
                        under them –

                    They want power –
                        they want the person under
                            them weaker and weaker –

                    Where does that power get them –

                It is destructive!!

                    Perpetrating control

                       ↓

                    Victim
                        weaker & weaker

                    more and more control
 

                The person doing it –
                    seeking power over –
                    is enjoying watching others
                        get weaker

                They want this dance –
                    They control the punches
                        in the ring –
                        UNFAIRLY

                Love
  

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.

 

 THE TWELVE STEPS OF AA 

                Here are the steps we took, which are suggested as a program of recovery:

                    1.  We admitted we were powerless over alcohol,
                            that our lives had become unmanageable.

                    2.  Came to believe that a Power greater than
                            ourselves could restore us to sanity.

                    3.  Made a decision to turn our will and our lives
                            over to the care of God as we understood Him.

                    4.  Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

                    5.  Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human
                            being the exact nature of our wrongs.

                    6.  Were entirely ready to have God remove all
                            these defects of character.

                    7.  Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

                    8.  Made a list of all persons we had harmed,
                            and became willing to make amends to them all.

                    9.  Made direct amends to such people wherever possible,
                            except when to do so would injure them or others.

                    10.  Continued to take personal inventory and when we
                            were wrong promptly admitted it.

                    11.  Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our
                            conscious contact with God as we understood Him,
                            praying only for knowledge of His will for us and
                            the power to carry that out.

                    12.  Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps,
                            we tried to carry this message to alcoholics,
                            and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

                 

                    R. People who are dysfunctional
                    are afraid of authority
                    figures

                They can seek approval day long –

                They don't want any correction
                    or directions –

                They can become addicted to excitement.

                They lose the ability to feel and
                    live in the moment.

                They have low self-esteem.

                They don't want to be abandoned –
                    they have fear of abandonment.

   

 

   

                R. Stuffed feelings!

                Pain –

                We are to stick with problems until
                    we solve it – We are to listen to
                    authority and directions –

                    When a person is misbehaving
                        why are they doing it –
                        What are they feeling –
                        Why are they feeling this way –
                        How can you deal with it –
                        What will you do about it?

                Old tapes that discredit and show
                    hate are bad.
                    How is your self-talk?
                    Listen to it!

                Use the Blue Books –

                Life is so short

Joyful Mysteries 

The Annunciation 

 l. Song: The Angel Gabriel

2. Song: Gloria

3. Song: Gloria continues

4. Song: Oh Holy Mary

5. Jesus: The time of your Visitation is at hand for Mary appeared to you as Our Lady of Light for so many months. And how did the people respond to the great calling of their Mother? For from the time of Eve, man has sinned. The New Eve appeared, the Lady clothed as the sun now appears on the building in Florida and the world is asleep. For they do not recognize the great sign that the Lord has sent to you, a woman, clothed as the sun, adorned on the building in Florida. 

6. R. Why is the hand of the Lord held high above the earth? Because of the willfulness of the children of this earth. For it is a great gift that God gives to man when He sends His Mother to this earth. But how is it that many of the sinful children could go deeply into the Heart of Christ? Does it not make perfect sense that He would send a perfect, a pure and spotless one, that when we go to her heart and we pray through her powerful intercession, immense grace will be released. The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present. And uniting in such oneness with Him is so important to give ourselves to God the Father as a sacrifice in great oneness with His Son. And so this great union reaches its heights when we give ourselves in oneness to the heart of Mary. And it is in her heart that we unite deeply in the Heart of Christ. And grace flows when we unite and pray at Mass. Pray to the Father united to Jesus at Mass. Beg for grace. Give glory and honor to our Father at Mass. 

7. R. What is the story of Salvation History? It is that man sinned. Jesus is our Savior. And it is that we go to God and tell Him we are sorry for our sins. And that we give Him great honor and glory as is His due. Mary is the spotless Virgin, the Mother of Jesus. We pray for her powerful intercession.

8. R. In the Litany we recognize Mary in her Motherhood, her Virginity, her titles, her Queenship. Mary is the most highly favored Lady and we should sing, “Gloria”. A Son is born this day, God, the Son of Man, given to us our Savior. 

Song: A Song from Jesus

9. Jesus: The time of your Visitation is at hand. For the Lady appears clothed as the sun on the building in Florida. 

10. R. This is from the first Blue Book and it was almost three years before Mary appeared on that building. And He woke me knocking and there were lights in the room and I heard really strong, “like the seedless barren no fruit on the vine” message of Jesus. He kept saying this, “Who will read this message? Angels will read this message”. And I got out of bed and I was scared and I ran down the steps to the study because that’s where I wrote all the messages.

Jesus: "...I will be by their side. I want the messages out. I want them out, I tell you. I want My people to hear all I am telling you. I want, not a few, but all to hear these words. They are private revelations given by Me to My people. The souls are, oh, so hungry for this one. They need to get these messages. I am one crying in the desert. Make ready the way of the Lord. Prepare ye a path for the Master. He comes as a child in a stable. His people are asleep." (December 20, 1993)

R. And Mary, when she gave the message on December 19th, 1996, three years later said, Mary: "My dear children, I give to you, my Son, Jesus, born in a stable in Bethlehem on Christmas morn. He is the Almighty God, the Light of the World.

    I appear to you, my children, on a (former) bank in Florida. You have made money your god! Do you know how cold are your hearts? You turn away from my Son, Jesus, for your money. Your money is your god."

R. That’s what she said three years later that’s on the back of that card.

Jesus: "...Where are they and what are they doing with their busy lives? The angels will read the messages. They will rock the heavens and all will know My love and My might. From the housetops, shout this. Proclaim, "The day of the Lord is approaching. Make ready a path for Him." Will you comply with this demand to deliver a message to My people?" (December 20, 1993)

Song: Angels we have Heard on High

 

The Visitation 

l. R. And He speaks of a sign. And I wonder if the sign three years later is the Lady clothed as the sun.

Jesus: "Time, child, is so short. You must ready all with My words of love. They are half asleep and dazed. They walk this earth with blinders on their eyes. My day will rock them off their rockers and they will know it is I with Whom they deal. No mistake will be made as to what is happening. All will see My power and My might. From the heavens shall come a sign and all will know from whence it comes. And the days that follow will be days to prepare men's hearts for My coming. I will not come unannounced. I will come with My power and My might and you will know what you will behold. Men will turn their hearts to Me with these messages. Get them out, I tell you, for their need is very great. I am patient and yet I am demanding. Ready yourself for this day of the Lord. I come as a baby into your midst, the angels sing, the choirs of heaven rejoice and you will know soon that I am very close to you all. Indeed you will know!"  (December 20, 1993)

2. Song: Gloria, in excelsis deo

3. R. This is about the shepherds. 

Luke 2: 19-20  As for Mary, she treasured all these things and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds went back glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as they had been told.  

4. Song: Gloria, in excelsis deo continued

5. Reference 1 Corinthians 15:20-23 

6. Song: A Song from Jesus - refrain

            Revelation 22: 20  ...I am indeed coming soon. Amen; come, Lord Jesus.

    Matthew 2: 9  ...And suddenly the star they had seen rising went forward and halted over the place where the child was. 

    Luke 2: 8  In the countryside close by there were shepherds out in the fields keeping guard over their sheep during the watches of the night. 

R. This is like us. We’re keeping the night watch while they’re slumbering over their flock. This is what we are doing watching in the darkness. It is night now and a big light is about to go over the earth. 

Luke 2: 14  Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace for those he favours. 

R. On April 17th of 1994 there was a Blue Book meeting and He told me to do that video that afternoon.That was like one of the beginning times in the Shepherds of Christ Movement. And the Blue Book meeting was in that chapel that day and that light shone over the Center and He said that He was coming in their hearts. And so it is like we are the shepherds today that are watching in the darkness and the light is about to break on the earth. The video is April 17, 1994, Message from Jesus.

7. R. Listen to this. It says this in the Psalm.

Reference Psalm 130: 6-8

R. It is now that we are in the dark, the shepherds, and we are waiting for the light to come across the sky as He said.

R. And Israel He said to me meant the children of Light.

8. Reference Colossians 1: 13-16, 18

9. Reference Jeremiah 25: 34-38

R. Come Lord Jesus, Come.

2. Hail Mary

3. Song: See the Eyes that Look at Mary - refrain

4. Song: See the Eyes that Look at Mary - verse 1

5. Psalm 110: 1-5, 7

Yahweh declared to my Lord, ‘Take your seat at my right hand, 
till I have made your enemies your footstool.’ 

Yahweh will stretch out the sceptre of your power; 
from Zion you will rule your foes all around you. 

Royal dignity has been yours from the day of your birth, 
sacred honour from the womb, from the dawn of your youth. 

Yahweh has sworn an oath he will never retract, 
you are a priest for ever of the order of Melchizedek.

At your right hand, Lord,
he shatters kings when his anger breaks out.

He drinks from a stream as he goes,
and therefore he holds his head high.

6. R. And He speaks on December 20th, 1993 from Blue Book I, with this message where He was knocking.

Jesus: "What awaits those in their feeble hearts! They run after such useless things when I, God, am talking in these letters. They think their world is their end. What an awakening they will have-a wide awakening!

I knock to make ready for My coming. You hear Me knock on your door in the night. Make ready this path so My people will read these letters of love. I am mighty and worthy of such praise. My people must realize My love in My intense might. What sign do you need? Do you think these messages were for your ears alone? Such power and wisdom in Rita's purse? This is not the idea. They are for all! My ease goes with you in all your undertakings to get these messages out."   (December 20, 1993)

7. Jesus: "Slow, too slow, I tell you. Shout My message from the housetops, that I am Lord and I am coming in your midst as a baby, but, with such might! My time is at hand. You tarry too long, My little ones. Time you do not have. This world is crazy! People are so busy at the malls. Oh, what foolish ones. I come as a baby into your midst. This is My birthday and whom do you worship? You worship idols! It is all such a sick world. Make ready My path, My little ones. Time is so short and you must not tarry any longer for into your hands I place My words for the world. They are mighty, little ones. Read them! What do you do with these words? Do you want proof? Look at Me hanging on the cross. It is out of this love of you I died a brutal death! Do you think I would not go to this extent to save the souls of My loved ones? Why would I come to this earth, give My life for all My beautiful creatures, and then, at this stage of the game, not send some mighty medicine to cure My sick little ones? You possess the mighty medicine. I mixed it with such love and I hand-deliver each message to shake My people to My love. The heavens will rock and the Son of Man will appear on a cloud and the glory of the Lord will be shown on high!"   (December 20, 1993)

8. Song: A Song from Jesus

9. Jesus: "Get busy, you little people. The angels declare My words are given here. This is My gift to My people-distinct, clear letters proclaiming My love. Are you listening? Do you think I would not try everything to save My beloved ones?

Oh, I will go to any extent to save these little ones, so ornery and so stupid in their ways, so sinful in this evil world, but so precious to Me. I will come in My glory and I want every last soul.

I am God. Why would I not speak to you? I wait for you. I wait, I wait, but you are all so blind and dense. What you do is so silly. Your ways here have become sick and your hearts have become hard. But shout it from the housetops! I loved you to My death! I love you all in your sickness. I want you united under the mantle of My mother, praying and honoring God."   (December 20, 1993)

10. Jesus: "America, turn yourselves around before it is too late. Come and heed My harkening. Come, come, My children. Time is so short and a lot of mending must be done in your hearts. You have hardened them and now they must come back to life. Only I can give you this life in your hearts.

Heed My words here. I am gentle and kind in heart. My heart is a heart of love. I have hand-delivered these messages to My people and you are My delivery boys. Get them going, little ones. You tarry too much.

My gift to My people is My love this Christmas."   (December 20, 1993)

 

The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple 

1. Jesus: Come to Me. Stop it I tell you. Don’t run amuck. I want to be alone with you and you are to come and be with Me. I love you with such intensity. 

2. Jesus: And so how was your Christmas? I ask you this, My beloved ones. For there will be a new earth and the old earth will pass away. And you are on the sidelines and you tip back and forth. And you would like to go back to that old way because it once felt so comfortable. But you know Me and you know My love. And so you go back and you think, oh this is uncomfortable. And the whole world is not like you. I tell you there will be a new earth and the old way will pass away. And you are My shepherds and you will suffer. And as you go to the heart of the woman clothed as the sun, you are one in My Heart. And you experience great peace in your heart and you are elated to such heights in Me. And then you are back to this earthy place, this place in which you cannot understand earthy thinking. How can you be to such heights and then go back to such low points. For at one moment you are highly elated as you are saturated with My life in front of the tabernacle, and then there you are out the door and it is as if someone hit you in the face with a wet rag. And there you are in a different place and how did this happen? Well the devil, My dear ones, wants you to stop. And so you have an immense struggle. And what is it that the whole world is one way and you are another way. But when you are in the circle, when you are in the womb of the woman and you feel so comfortable and so good and having known this in the heights of intimacy with Me, you may want to go to that which is familiar. But when you go back there, that which is familiar is very uneasy to your soul. For that once was very comfortable. It is comfortable for so many. They are the children that are walking in darkness. You are the leader. You cannot be pulled down by them for they want you back to where you were. You must pull them into the center, into the heart of Mary. It is there that they will be brought forth into a new way, that they will be conceived of the woman and brought forth as children of Light. These are the ones that will survive, the ones that have given their heart to the woman, to Mary's Immaculate Heart. 

3. 1 Corinthians 15: 23  ...Christ the first-fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. 

 Luke 2: 19-20  As for Mary, she treasured all these things and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds went back glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as they had been told.  

4. R. (This is what I wrote today). The lame are outside the sheep gate. He cures them and says, take up your mat. Really, take up your mat and follow Me. The way after Him is to take up our cross. But most people stop at the gate because it is too hard, because the world says, take a pain pill, it should be easy. The way after the Good Shepherd though, through the sheep gate is to take up our cross. In John 10, He says –

John 10: 1-3

‘In all truth I tell you, anyone who does not enter the sheepfold through the gate, but climbs in some other way, is a thief and a bandit. He who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the flock; the gate-keeper lets him in, the sheep hear his voice, one by one he calls his own sheep and leads them out.

R. He has written our name in His Heart because we have given ourselves to His most Sacred Heart. He promised to Margaret Mary that He would write our names in His Heart. Revelation says, their names have been written in the Book of Life. Those are the ones that will survive.  

    Promises of Our Lord to those devoted to His Sacred Heart: 

    1. I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.
    2. I will establish peace in their homes.
    3. I will comfort them in all their afflictions.
    4. I will be their refuge during life and above all in death.
    5. I will bestow a large blessing on all their undertakings.
    6. Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and the infinite ocean of mercy.
    7. Tepid souls shall grow fervent.
    8. Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection.
    9. I will bless every place where a picture of My Heart shall be set up and honored.
    10. I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.
    11. Those who promote this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be blotted out.
    12. I promise you in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful love will grant to all those who communicate on the first Friday in nine consecutive months the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving their sacraments; My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.

5. R. All through the Blue Books it says, “I am the Good Shepherd. They follow Me.”  He says the same thing in all of these that are in this book. This is what we are doing here. The priests are to be like Jesus. Fr. Carter is bonding in the Priestly Newsletter with the hearts of those priests that are open. And Fr. Carter, who has that immense union with Him and is a priest is the leader of our Movement. The priest needs to lead this flock into this oneness. And the priests' hearts can be turned into priests like the Good Shepherd through the Newsletter. And their hearts will be bonded to our hearts and to Fr. Carter’s heart and to Jesus and Mary’s Hearts as they consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. We are being molded into oneness. We all consecrate our hearts together here. We can no longer be isolated and separate. The commandment was to love God and to love one another. As we merge in oneness, we have to die to those ways that are separate and imperfect, that are not of the Good Shepherd. And in the dying it is most painful. It is easier to go to the top of the hill on some days and say, “I want to be by myself.” But is this what He wants? Does He want us alone? Even when we are in front of the tabernacle, we are united in an immense oneness in our hearts with one another. And if there is any division at all between any of us, our hearts are torn in half inside because over these years we have molded our hearts together. Division immensely hurts us. He has fed us on a daily dose of His life in the Eucharist and an hour in front of the tabernacle. This book, “Teachings to Lift You Up” is about receiving great grace. We are lifted up when we sit in front of the tabernacle. We need to do our hour before the tabernacle if we are leaders in the Shepherds of Christ. But the worst is, worse than not eating food, is not having that grace from the tabernacle and from the Mass. We are starved and we can look around for every pleasure of the earth to fill our souls. But what is life but the Bread of Life and it is in Him and we have all been saturated with His life. The more we search for a useless pleasure here, the more that we are left dry, empty, frustrated.  

6. R. The devil tries to get us divided in our hearts from one another because it is immensely painful. The way that we will operate and we will have the greatest peace is to have peace with one another. We have all had our hearts molded together in a way that only God could do to bring about this great oneness on the earth. And we are all leaning in, in this oneness. Even when we go away from each other we must stay united in our heart for our own sanity. For we are deepest in our heart when we are one in Him, and one with each other. And in the end there will be the unity throughout this whole earth because of the work that we are doing here that will majorly contribute to it. Oneness in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in the consecration, whether I am here or if I am across the world, I will be one with all those in the Mass. And in the end, in the new earth, we will know oneness, fullness as never before because the more of us are one, the fuller our love in Him.  

7. Colossians 1: 18

        and he is the Head of the Body, that is, the Church.
        He is the Beginning, the first-born from the dead,
        so that he should be supreme in every way;

8. Colossians 1: 19-20

        because God wanted all fullness to be found in him and through him
        to reconcile all things to him, everything in heaven and everything on earth,
        by making peace through his death on the cross.

9. Colossians 1: 12

       giving thanks with joy to the Father who has made you able to share the lot of God's holy people and with them to inherit the light.

10. Colossians 1: 13-14

... It is he who has rescued us from the ruling force of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of the Son that he loves, and in him we enjoy our freedom, the forgiveness of sin. 

Song: A Song from Jesus

Song: I Love You Jesus

 

The Finding of Jesus in the Temple 

l. 1 Corinthians 15: 20-28

In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first-fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first-fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. But when it is said everything is subjected, this obviously cannot include the One who subjected everything to him. When everything has been subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the One who has subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.

2. Reference 1 Corinthians 15: 29-34

3. Reference 1 Corinthians 15: 35-44

4. Reference 1 Corinthians 15: 45-49

5. R. And so we go back and forth. And the teachings in the Blue Book are indeed His teachings to lift us high. In front of the tabernacle we are lifted high. We are of that special heights in Him. And so then, we go back. The only way that we can stay consistent is to consistently love, love always. If we have division in our heart with any person, we smack back to the earthly person and in our hearts we are divided and feel uncomfortable. We must give our hearts to Mary. We must strive for more perfect love as great as we can have it, likened, more and more to unity like the love that exists between the Persons of the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. For this is why we have been called here to help to mold this world into great oneness. And how can we do that if there is division in our own hearts?  

6. R. How deep do you want this union with Christ? We were created to long for God. And nothing, no pleasure out there, cookies or whatever, will fill our souls. Nothing will give us the pleasure that we want. The deepest union is in Him and the deepest union is in not having division with any man. We must always operate at every second for His honor and His glory. And in the end, this is our goal that of the new earth. That we say as St. Paul says, “yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me.” Galatians 2: 19-20  Christ is the center, the first fruit. And right now we can be going back and forth between the earthy and being more holy. And we want so much to be one in Him. But the devil tries to create this division in our thoughts. And we must, must, must for the joy within our hearts, concentrate on being one with each other. For in this oneness we are in the deepest part of the Heart of Christ. And we relish and love the union that we have with Him. This is our goal. This is our want. 

7. R. We go to Mary's heart she takes us to Jesus' Heart. It is there that we are united in this great oneness. And it is constant. Only those that were in the Ark survived the flood of Noah. Only will we have that peace that we long for if we stay in her Immaculate Heart. That means staying in there in greatest love. The payoff for us being in love with one another, is peace, love and joy in our hearts. It is example that we talk about. It is our place that people will then look at us and say, we want what they have and we will follow. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. The Finding of Jesus in the Temple.  

8. R. Ark of the Covenant, Tower of Ivory, House of Gold. This is the Virgin Mary. She is pure, Immaculate and sinless. And the more that we concentrate in the Mass as she stands beside the altar in Lucia’s vision, the more that we concentrate on being in her Immaculate Heart. No matter what we are praying for, if we are in her heart, He will open up the floodgates of Heaven when we are united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. And grace will be outpoured. And so the Father says that He is so angered about how we have treated Mary and we have disobeyed her. We must honor her Immaculate Heart. We are not recognizing this whole Plan when we do not recognize Mary. We do not see that we are tainted, Mary is not. That Mary takes us deeply into Jesus' Heart. We go to Mary's Heart – Tower of Ivory, House of Gold, Ark of the Covenant.

9. Jesus: My children of Light, you will be brought forth from the womb of the woman into a deeper life in Me. You will be at a level of spiritual oneness with God in the Mass. 

R. We’ve got to think of ourselves as dwelling in Mary’s heart at all times. We go to Mary's Heart and pray through her powerful intercession at Mass.

10. Song: Little Baby Hands and Feet

R. You know how it is if you are a mother. The immense pain if there is any division between you and your children. Think of how it is for Mary for she loves each child on this earth more than any earthly mother could love a child. Mary has this ability. Do you hear the wailing woman as she cries forth under the cross? And the tears come down her cheeks for she knows how many will be saved and how many will be lost this day and how many will not heed her words that she speaks, the words of Fatima. That we must give our heart to her and to her Son, Jesus. 

Excerpt from October 8, 1997

Jesus: ...There was not room for Me in the Inn and there is not room for Me in the hearts of many and what can I say - they will die. I gave them the book of life. I gave them the Man who hung on a tree to save them. I gave them Myself, truly present in the Eucharist, the Eucharist and My Word I gave them. I gave to them My Mother - the way to enter into My Heart and they were haughty and proud. I was born in a stable in Bethlehem for you, My men. I am the Light of the World. The foolish virgins had no oil for their lamps and they went out. And you could hear the wailing cries of her children being slaughtered in the dark night. Oh, the Lady Clothed as the Sun warned them to come to her heart and the Heart of her Son (the Light of the World) and they went to the molten calf and they died a brutal death.  end of excerpt

Luke 2: 34-35, 51

    ...‘Look, he is destined for the fall and for the rise of many in Israel, ... and a sword will pierce your soul too

    His mother stored up all these things in her heart.

Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Litugical Year (2011/2012)
$ 10.00

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 Litugical Year
$ 10.00

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 - Focusing on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Litugical Year
$ 10.00

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

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Litugical Year
$ 10.00

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

"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
