Today is Emily's birthday - 

Happy Birthday Emily!



Messenger:     Everyday may be very difficult in

                    doing the work God has called us to do.

                    Everyday we give ourselves to Him, our focus

                    is for the souls.

                        In receiving the Eucharist we receive the

                    one true God. The Almighty God gives Himself

                    to us. He comes to us. God comes to me, I

                    receive the Divine God in His Divinity and Humanity

                    within my soul.

                        I want to be saturated with His life. I

                    long for the fullness of life and to be

                    with Him in heaven.

                        He may ask us to experience tremendous

                    physical suffering, suffering in a marriage,

                    in our relationships with our children,

                    at the workplace - there is suffering in

                    life - Christ showed us how He suffered

                    for our sins.

                        (This is not to indicate that we should

                    not go to the doctor if we need it or that we

                    should accept abuses that God does not want

                    us to withstand but in relationships those very

                    tender and loving may experience tremendous

                    sufferings from those who are in their families

                    or others in relationships that are insensitive

                    and not loving.)

                        I see Jesus, I see the battered body of the




                        I see the crowned head

                    of the Savior 



                       - I see Him hanging

                    on the cross



                        The Savior allows us to suffer. I see some

                    saints with the stigmata, a thorn in

                    their head.

Jesus speaks:    I speak to you, I have allowed you to suffer,

                    many have not answered My call in the Shepherds of

                    Christ, the funds are scarce because of those

                    who "hoard" their money and will not help

                    Me. My people I cry to you -


April 5, 2001


Jesus speaks:    I am God, I speak here.



Jesus speaks:    My Mother appears and I appear as a

                        sign given to this earth that you are

                        to heed My warnings.

                        Oh My precious souls, the ones I gave My

                        life for are living lives of sin. Oh

                        I cry to you, I cry bloody tears, I

                        shed My Blood for them - won't 

                        you help Me.

                            Oh My People won't you help Me.

Messenger:         .....and now I write of the Mass,

                        when He outpours His grace and floods my

                        soul with His presence and I see so

                        clearly - I am so united to Him, pleading

                        and begging for grace for the souls of the

                        earth, I am so aware of the great miracle

                        taking place - bread and wine is changed

                        into the Body and Blood of Christ through the

                        consecrated hands of the priest.

                            Oh My God, I love you, I love you, I love

                        you. I cry because I know so deeply the

                        miracle of the Mass,

                        heaven and earth are one at that moment

                        of consecration, I cry, I beg for grace

                        for the souls of the earth, I unite to all of

                        those in heaven - My vision is so wide,

                        My experience so deep -  My love so great for

                        God and all men - and I want Him, I want to

                        receive Him so deeply and give myself to Him

                        and I want this intense presence I have

                        with Him to never end.

                            I cherish the gift of the Eucharist and

                                I love Him so deeply.  

                              Christ is our bridegroom.

                                We are His bride.

                            I feel this deep presence with Him
                                in Holy Communion.

                            I love Him so much.
                        My love is for the souls He gave His life

                            I live so deeply giving myself united to
                                the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for
                                the souls He gave His life for.

                            My job as a messenger is as the prophet - 

                                I give myself and deliver the

                                    message, even when

                                    it is hard.

                                I see myself in that casket and

                            I will be held accountable for what

                            I didn't do and could have.

                    Jesus speaks:

                            To one much is given -

                                much is expected.

                            I love you.

                            I carried the cross to Calvary.




Messenger:  I went to Mass and it was going on

                        when all the people are united

                        watching the video at 4:00 and

                        listening on the web -

                    I could feel the oneness of heaven

                    and earth and I knew because

                    of our prayers great grace was

                    being released for the souls of

                        this earth all over the world.

                    One Mass is so powerful.

                    We cannot even phantom how

                    much grace can be released when

                    we are all united like this in

                    deep union and a priest

                    is celebrating the Mass united

                    especially with us for this


                   Oh God I pray for the priests,

                        the Church and the world.

                    I long for grace to be outpoured

                        for the souls of the earth.
