November 9, 2002

Messenger:        God has given us the Shepherds of Christ
                                to help renew the Church and the world.

                            The heart of Mary is pure — the heart
                                of Jesus is pure, we are to model
                                ourselves after them.

                            We see the story in the garden of Eden.

                            God had two people and then a family.
                            Eve wanted to be higher than God.
                            She did not want to obey.
                            The devil tempted her.
                            She gave in. Adam gave in.

                            A sin of pride.
                           A sin of being above God.

                            I write as God directs me.

                            At the beginning of the Bible is the story
                                of Adam and Eve and at the end

                                the story of the bride coming down
                                from heaven to meet her husband.

                            Brides wear white.
                            Brides should be pure.
                            The Church is a pilgrim Church, it
                                is to grow in her purity.

                            A BRIDE
                            A BEAUTIFUL BRIDE OF GOD
                            GOD IS ALL PURE —

                            We are in an army here below fighting satan.

                            Was not that the story in Genesis.

                            Adam and Eve were in a garden.
                            They could bear fruit for the Kingdom.

                            Instead they ate the fruit.

                            They disobeyed God.
                            They ate the fruit that was forbidden.

                            They were at war with the devil.
                            They gave in.

                            God put 2 people in the garden.

                            God expected them to work together as one.

                            God expected them to bring forth fruit.

                            God expected them to obey Him.

                            There is structure.

                            God, man, wife —

                            Then comes children —

                            The children — one was a shepherd — one
                                who kept flocks

                            The other one who tilled the soil — 

Genesis 4: 2

She gave birth to a second child, Abel, the brother of Cain. Now Abel became a shepherd and kept flocks, while Cain tilled the soil.


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 healthy. I shall be a true shepherd to them."

Messenger:        In communities —
                            in families
                            in institutions

                            There is structure —

                                Christ is the head of the Church —

                                Satan tempts people to write their
                                    own rules —

                                In this case they may rationalize it
                                    is okay to have sex outside
                                    of marriage, they may have
                                    all kinds of reasons ——

                                But the devil tempts people to
                                    rationalize why the sin is
                                    what they should do.

                                Some people become in a habit of
                                    sinning, they may not be
                                    consciously aware of how
                                    habitual their sin has become.

                                In communities — where one has given
                                    themselves there is always structure —
                                    one over them, one over them, going
                                    on back to God.

                                In families, the father and mother
                                    over the children, the father
                                    and mother going back to God.

                            I know many schools today in order to
                                bond with the students challenge
                                the parental authority when the
                                children are seniors in high
                                school on retreats, which
                                create division between children
                                and parents that are life-long
                                and damaging to the system
                                where God clearly states —


Sirach 3: 12-14

My child, support your father in his old age, do not grieve him during his life. Even if his mind should fail, show him sympathy, do not despise him in your health and strength; for kindness to a father will not be forgotten but will serve as reparation for your sins.


 November 9, 2002 message continues

Messenger:        It creeps in — in little ways — that need —
                                to control
to have ones way — and
                                this society does not help, for it
                                does not promote the system in
                                many cases where parents are in
                                charge (on the whole) and children
                                are under them.

                            I write as a messenger of God.

                            God sent His only begotten Son.

                            God wants us holy.

                            God wants us to model our lives after
                                the New Adam and the New Eve.

                            Jesus is God.

                            Jesus is the New Adam.

                            He obeyed His Father.

                            He loves the people under Him.

                            Jesus gave Himself on the cross
                                because He loved us so much.

                            What does God want.

                            Power comes from God.

                            In the family there is authority — parents
                                get the authority from God.

                            The Church gets the authority from God.

                            Think of any business — would it work
                                if people underneath argued
                                and argued and everyone tried
                                to be on top.

                            Look at a classroom — one is in charge —
                                people in the classroom try to
                                argue with the teacher to get control —

                                some may ask questions — acting
                                like they do not know what is
                                going on just to get the floor and
                                do their own will.

                            Some people in communities — never

                                recognize the leader — the whole time
                                they are there, in their heart, they
                                want to be over the leader.
                                What a disunited scene that is and
                                a cross for everyone living there.

                            It is in the heart.

                            It is the failure of one to ever recognize
                                anyone is over them.

                            They can be in a community, in a family,
                                but they have never allowed
                                anyone to really tell them what
                                to do so they can give in on
                                some things, but when things
                                are important they may give
                                into the temptation to do it
                                their own way surprising the 

                            PASSIVE - AGGRESSIVE the priest told me.

                            Some are angry in their heart and in

                                silent ways, and with the anger

                                deep seated in their heart they are
                                always trying to get control in
                                some way.

                            It makes for a real problem when a
                                person running a community is
                                "wishy-washy" like that.

                            How about children that always try to
                                be in charge over the teacher —

                                over the parents.

                            Is the world teaching us in many
                                instances to be #1, to have
                                our own way, to disobey
                                authority, to work for ourselves
                                and not help our brother?

                            I ask you to look at a community and
                                a particular man.

                            A man enters a community.
                            Since childhood he has kept himself
                                from ever getting too close to

                            He will try to not have anyone over

                            Right away — he has a problem with
                                the authority —

                            To get himself on top — in his heart
                                he says the authority is wrong —
                                he may argue to constantly get
                                the top position causing the
                                person in charge a lot of
                                trouble, he openly calls
                                attention to the person, he is
                                "pushy" in his own way.

                            The priest would say "passively-
                                aggressive." He may be silent, but he
                                is angry in his heart, as soon as he
                                leaves the community and goes to
                                another community — he talks about
                                every one in the other community
                                and especially the leader. He has
                                caused lots of trouble in the past
                                for the leader when he has traveled
                                to other sites.

                            Then he cries abuse, everything to
                                blame the community and others
                                for his own deep-seated anger —
                                lack of docility, never allowing
                                anyone to be over him —

                            He is a real case, but to hear him
                                talk, you may be able to
                                agree with him — he is not
                                coming from a place of truth —

                                he is coming from a place where

                                he wants to mold all those around
                                him to his own dysfunctional
                                way of thinking.

                            We are the product of the past.

                            We grow up in homes in which we

                                acted out patterns.

                            Some when they get in relationships, after
                                leaving the parental ones as a child,
                                say, "no body" will be over me again.

                            Some one may be in charge of a community
                                They were single all their life.
                                They did not have a real relationship
                                of give and take, they lived alone,
                                they did what they wanted — then
                                they think they have a calling and
                                they are holy, they lived alone,
                                they very seldom ever interacted on
                                an intimate basis, being in charge
                                of the community now gives them
                                the opportunity to try to run a very
                                "stiff place." They keep their distance,
                                they do not promote community
                                interaction, they run the house

                                in the mode they can still be
                                single and independent.
                                Will they look at themselves and
                                change. It is like moving a
                                "bulldozer". Their own activities are
                                veiled to themselves.

                            To be like Jesus —

                            To operate in community life —

                            We have to be willing to change —

                            Pray for grace to see —

                            Pray every day —

                            Make Jesus our spouse.

                            We operate for Jesus not to please
                                the one in authority, not
                                to get control, not to get
                                "one" this time and then sometimes
                                "only sometimes" obey the one in
                                authority so we don't get "thrown

                            Some operate to live the same single
                                life they had before —
                            In community life — there are married

                            Soon they establish a "little kingdom"
                                they can effect everyone, for
                                they can keep taking more and 
                                more control in little ways in their

                            Their actions are veiled.

                            Satan works in this way through the other
                                to stop productivity and to try to
                                lead people in the direction he wants.

                            There is such power in working together.

                            God wants it.

                            In married life people must work together —
                                some operate just like they were
                                and do not grow in greater

                            Some bring all their dysfunctional patterns
                                to the marriage and if one wants
                                to stay married they are forced to
                                live in these dysfunctional
                                situations that function —

                            I write as a messenger of God —
                                so much can be said —
                                but I want you to study the words
                                of John 17 ——


John 17
The Prayer of Jesus

After saying this, Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said:

Father, the hour has come:
glorify your Son
so that your Son may glorify you;
so that, just as you have given him
   power over all humanity,
he may give eternal life
   to all those you have entrusted to him.
And eternal life is this:
to know you,
the only true God,
and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.
I have glorified you on earth
by finishing the work
that you gave me to do.
Now, Father, glorify me
with that glory I had with you
before ever the world existed.
I have revealed your name
to those whom you took from the world
   to give me.
They were yours
   and you gave them to me,
and they have kept your word.
Now at last they have recognised
that all you have given me
   comes from you
for I have given them
the teaching you gave to me,
and they have indeed accepted it
and know for certain
   that I came from you,
and have believed
   that it was you who sent me.
It is for them that I pray.
I am not praying for the world
but for those you have given me,
because they belong to you.
All I have is yours
and all you have is mine,
and in them I am glorified.
I am no longer in the world,
but they are in the world,
and I am coming to you.
Holy Father,
keep those you have given me
   true to your name,
so that they may be one like us.
While I was with them,
I kept those you had given me
   true to your name.
I have watched over them
   and not one is lost
except one who was destined to be lost,
and this was to fulfil the scriptures.
But now I am coming to you
and I say these things in the world
to share my joy with them to the full.
I passed your word on to them,
and the world hated them,
because they belong to the world
no more than I belong to the world.
I am not asking you
   to remove them from the world,
but to protect them from the Evil One.
They do not belong to the world
any more than I belong to the world.
Consecrate them in the truth;
your word is truth.
As you sent me into the world,
I have sent them into the world,
and for their sake I consecrate myself
so that they too
   may be consecrated in truth.
I pray not only for these
but also for those
who through their teaching
will come to believe in me.
May they all be one,
just as, Father, you are in me
   and I am in you,
so that they also may be in us,
so that the world may believe
it was you who sent me.
I have given them the glory
   you gave to me,
that they may be one as we are one.
With me in them and you in me,
may they be so perfected in unity
that the world will recognise
   that it was you who sent me
and that you have loved them
as you have loved me.

I want those you have given me
to be with me where I am,
so that they may always see my glory
which you have given me
because you loved me
before the foundation of the world.
Father, Upright One,
the world has not known you,
but I have known you,
and these have known
that you have sent me.
I have made your name known to them
and will continue to make it known,
so that the love with which you loved me
   may be in them,
and so that I may be in them.


                            The "truth will be in us", John says


2 John 2: 2

because of the truth that remains in us
and will be with us for ever.


2 John 1: 1-2

...and to her children, whom I love in truth—and I am not the only one, for so do all who have come to know the Truth—and I am not the only one, for so so do all who have come to know the Truth—because of the truth that remains in us and will be with us for ever.

                            This Movement exists to be one holy
                                army fighting to spread the
                                light of Jesus across the land.

                            Jesus wants us to work together.

                            He worked with His Mother.

                            He worked with His Apostles.

                            Jesus was seen a great amount
                                of the time in community —
                                eating, talking, speaking
                                before crowds, healing the
                                sick, at the wedding.

                            Why do you think Jesus showed us this?

                            The strength is in operating together.

                            We have to be one — one body —
                                trying to live together in love
                                with Jesus our head.

                            In every situation a person may
                                come with a heart that is
                                envious and wanting to be
                                in charge and try to get
                                in control in passive ways —
                                causing upsetments, acting
                                like they don't understand —
                                drawing out the conversation
                                so little can be accomplished
                                and in the end they hope to
                                get control and do it their
                                own way.

                            They can practice this over and over
                                again and cause a lot of
                                problems because of their

                            We are to help renew the religious orders.

                            See Jesus walking with 12 Apostles,
                                eating with 12 Apostles —
                                can you imagine how they got along.

                            This is it in the end we will be one
                                in heaven.

                            Do you operate for God or for yourself?

                            Are you rigid and set in your own
                                ways stopping unity in work
                                and productivity because you
                                are selfish, argumentative,
                                jealous and want to be in

                            Argumentation is just a form of
                                getting your own way.

                            Why argue about stuffing envelopes?

                            If someone in authority says —
                                I want the pink paper over the
                                blue one, why do you have
                                to get some control by
                                trying to switch them.

                            That is a defect inside the person
                                when they are called to the job
                                to do something and they take
                                the job and just want to
                                switch things so they can be
                                in control.

                            This is not to say people have called
                                people together to help each
                                other in better ways to perform
                                a task.

                            This discussion covers the topic
                                of people who harbor anger inside
                                and cause trouble
                                trying to be the leader in
                                a community when they are
                                not the leader.

                            This discussion concerns some
                                problems in community
                                life and other situations
                                that block productivity
                                and keep people stuck
                                in a bad place because of
                                willfulness and giving into
                                satan to block unity.



Mysteries of Light




Baptism of Jesus

1.    PURITY —       

2.    We are here to grow in purity.

3.    Jesus was baptized in the Jordan.

4.    Water is a sign of purity.

5.    Jesus is the New Adam.

6.    We sin.

7.    We have a fallen human nature.

8.    Mary is all pure.

9.    We must go to her pure, Immaculate Heart.

10.   Baptism erases the effects of original sin.

Excerpt from Response to God's Love - Chapter 7

       Christ offers himself through the Church and her sacraments so that we might become ever more united to him. This incorporation into Christ begins at baptism, through which the Christian becomes a member of both Christ and the Church. What is more, this incorporation into the life of Christ means being incorporated into his paschal mystery because death-resurrection was the summary mystery of Christ's existence. Death-resurrection was the central mystery whereby Christ gave us life, and it is the central mystery that the Christian must relive in Christ.

1.    Jesus performed a miracle at the
            wedding at Cana.

2.    Jesus changed water into wine.

3.    I am so thankful to God for

    In all truth I tell you, 
    no one can enter the kingdom of God 
    without being born 
        through water and the Spirit;





Kingdom of God

1.    Adam and Eve sinned.

2.    Cain was angry at his brother.

3.    Jesus is the New Adam.

4.    Mary is the New Eve.

            to the New Adam and New Eve.

1.   I saw Jesus gleaming before me.
      Words do not exist how to explain
            it. I do not like the word gleaming,
            only transfigured comes close to
            what I need to say.

2.    We receive special graces in baptism.

3.    To receive special insights into
            the Divine Mysteries is a gift.

4.    God imparts knowledge of Himself to us.

5.    When I see heaven, I see a place
            of tremendous light.

6.    I long for heaven.

Excerpt from December 17, 1995

    You whisked me away, and I was totally absorbed in that moment of celestial union with You. For that time, I existed only in You, in the deepest union, and I was in this moment existing in You. The earth stopped, and I touched the heavens, all my bodily cares were existent in You. I existed in Your Divinity, my being was in You.

7.    I long to know about Him,
            I want special lights I
            receive from Him to know
            Him more deeply.
            It is a gift He gives to me
                when He chooses.


        8.    A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

     Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

John 1: 5

This is what we have heard from him 
and are declaring to you: 
God is light, 
    and there is no darkness in him at all.

10.    God is with us — He is Almighty.






The Last Supper

1.    We see Jesus at the last supper
            with His Apostles.

2.    He was with them. In communities 
            we work together.
            Christ is seen with His Apostles
                at the last supper.
            Judas was not united.
            It caused trouble.

        3.    We come together as a body
                    united in the Mass.

        4.    The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary, 
                    sacramentally made present.

        5.    The Church is the Body of Christ.

        6.    We are not intended to cut an isolated
                    path through life.

        7.    The death-resurrection of Jesus, which
                    is encountered in a special way
                    through the sacraments, is most especially
                    renewed in the Eucharistic sacrifice.

        8.    Excerpt from Response to God's Love, Chapter 7

       In Jesus' sacrifice, the same five elements occur, although not exactly in the same order. There is the interior offering; Christ as priest offers himself to the Father in love for the purpose of adoration, thanksgiving, petition, and satisfaction for sin. This interior offering is then externalized at the ritual of the Last Supper. The victim, Jesus himself, is immolated upon Calvary. The Father gives a miraculous sign that he accepts Jesus' sacrifice through the resurrection. Finally, there is the sacrificial meal at the Last Supper.

        9.    Excerpt from Response in Christ, Chapter 4

5) The Banquet in Christ’s Sacrifice

The cycle of sacrifice is strikingly completed by God graciously extending an invitation to partake of the offered victim. This element of sacrifice is miraculously fulfilled in Christ’s oblation. By the words of consecration the bread and wine become Christ. In this manner Christ gives Himself to His disciples at the Last Supper. We will further develop these ideas of eucharistic communion in our consideration of the Mass.

We hereby complete the consideration of the elements of Christ’s sacrifice. According to the unicists there was but one sacrifice of Christ. The Last Supper, death and Resurrection each contributed essential elements. This one sacrifice of Christ endures in its efficacy for all time. In itself it is not to be repeated. Its sacramental renewal, however, is repeated daily on our altars in the Mass.


                Jesus is the Chief Priest and Victim.


        10.    Excerpt from Response in Christ, Chapter 4

How is the paschal mystery and all the related mysteries of Christ renewed in the Mass? As a preliminary step to answering this question, let us first give a more detailed analysis of the mystery of Christ which was briefly described in the chapter on the Church. Put very briefly, this mystery is God’s concrete plan of redemption centered in Christ. The expansion of this idea leads to the theology of mysteries, a much discussed topic since the time of Casel.

The following is one manner in which we may conceive of the mystery of Christ. God Himself is ultimately the mystery – holy, completely transcendent, completely other. God in His inner life is thus hidden to man, unless He chooses to reveal and communicate Himself. He has so acted, giving Himself to man in word and action in Christ. Thus, because the ultimate mystery, God Himself, has communicated Himself in Christ, we have the mystery of Christ, the Christian mystery. It is legitimate to speak in the plural, designating the mysteries of Christ rather than simply mystery, because all that Christ did was part of the one unified mystery. In all the events of Christ’s life God was communicating Himself and redeeming man in Christ. 
    There are other ways of describing the mystery of Christ, yet we find a common denominator in our original statement: the mystery is God’s concrete plan of redemption in Christ.

It is difficult for us every month to make the
Virgin Mary payment.

We cannot keep the store stocked
because of the shortage of money.

Our Lord has asked us to stock the store

Christmas presents from the store.

Can you help us in any way?
