Messenger:       Christ says
                        "I am alive — I am alive
                            I am alive"

                        We are being tested —

                        God allowed His important figures
                            to be tested since the beginning.


John 17: 14 - 16

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.

Messenger:       God is so good to us.

                        God doesn't want us to be secular —

                        We are at war in the world.

                        We are in His army —

                        Our weapons are our hearts filled
                            with His love.

                        In the Blue Books — Jesus says — you are
                            at battle —

                            The more we go to the Eucharist — the
                        more we are filled with His life —

                            We can be small, but with His Might —
                        we are mighty.

                            God is all powerful.

                            To do His work — we must be more pure.

                            Going to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary can
                        help us to be more one IN HIM.

                        To be tested and survive, we must grow in
                            greater holiness — let go of
                            imperfections —

                        Want God more purely

                        Do all things for His honor and glory —

                        LOVE — love God deeply

                        LOVE — love ourselves as God desires

                        LOVE — love one another as God desires.

                        A person can be at war — they try to secure
                            all the loop holes — make themselves strong —

                        In the Church — to withstand this war —
                            we must be people of faith —
                            love God so deeply —
                            let go of imperfections that act like
                                open doors for satan to attack —
                                others to attack us —

                        So the Church is solid,
                            but the imperfections of some, some priests especially,
                            have been the doors in which we have suffered

                        Say a body (a person's body) has an infected toe —
                            It may be very little, but very hurtful when
                            they walk, but the infected toe if cared for —
                            flushed out - tended to - does not take
                            out the whole body.

                        Imperfections of the clergy act like open doors
                            in which satan can stage an attack.

                            A family may be very productive and loving
                        but one son or daughter very rebellious from
                        reasons outside the family. The whole family
                        hurts and may have to focus, tend to the problem,
                        but in the end, it can more deeply unite the
                        family -- teach them lessons of truth and
                        love -- they may have never learned had they not had
                        the terrible problem.

                            We must secure the walls of attack with greater
                        holiness — which is why the Newsletter and the prayers
                        in the prayer manual can help the Church — the
                        priests to grow in greater holiness— through this
                        nourishment — Good writings of the Good Shepherd — and
                        prayers for our priests, the Church and the world.

                            Why me — we may say — I want to live a life
                        of fun and enjoy myself — not having tension —

                            Secularism is around us.

                            We battle this battle —

                            A man was put on an island and there was a battle
                        going on — he wanted peace, but he had to live
                        with the people on the island who were at war.
                        He was surrounded by battle —

                            God put us here — this day — He created us in
                        His image and likeness to grow ever more likened
                        to Him. We, who have been baptized, are
                        chosen especially to do His work

                        To spread the Good News
                        To buildup the body

                            We are being tested in fire — like the song
                                "Glory and Praise to Our God"

                            We are creatures of the Creator with
                        a purpose — Our mission to build up the
                        body of Christ — to promote God's Kingdom—
                        to live a holy life and to go to
                        heaven some day —

                            Happiness — real happiness is only found
                        in God.

                            Happiness — real happiness is found — only
                        in doing God's holy will.

                            Happiness is found as it says in the song

                            — trees do bend through straight and tall —
                                not in bending the Word or the commandments —
                                the rules of the Church —

                                but in bending our will to be as God
                                wants us to be — in giving ourselves to
                                Him — to be molded more and more in His
                                image and likeness.

                        China, Indiana is like a little city — They
                            focus on the work of sending out the Newsletter
                            and praying before the Blessed Sacrament —

                        All kinds of correspondence from Bishops and
                            priests - go in and out of there — we pray
                            deeply for the priests, the Church and
                            the world.

                        China, Indiana is our center —
                        We have the Eucharist there.
                        We have prayed 24 hours a day for several
                            years —

                        We have prayed all day since the beginning
                            when we got the
                            church in the summer of 1997.

                            Fr. Carter got a message to look for our
                        second center and we left his Jesuit residence
                        in Cincinnati and drove straight to Indiana to see.
                        A person in the movement who just got land in
                        Canaan and we got lost — turned around in the
                        parking lot by the sacristy in St. Anthony Church
                        China and laughed to each other and said — we
                        got lost in China —

                            Little did we know we were found,
                        not lost!!!

                            Later — the couple we went to visit said - the
                        church was for sale—

                            When I first went in I had a vision of the
                        Eucharist exposed like this picture full of people

Messenger:           Jesus said He wanted the rug red for His
                        Sacred Heart —
                            the ceiling blue for Mary
                            and the walls including window wells white!!



December 12, 2006 message continues

Messenger:       Our next Newsletter is on the Eucharist —
                        Fr. Carter and I didn't know we were home!

                        Sing: Danny Boy

                        The rolling hills took us to China

Messenger:       The church surrounded by creeks  



December 12, 2006 message continues

Messenger:       When Father would say Mass I thought of
                            all the grace pouring out to the world.

                        On April 13 — one 13th we came out and it
                            usually never snows then —
                            after praying from 12:00 - 5:00
                            with a church full of people and
                            it was snowing like this —
                                snow flakes as big as silver dollars —



December 12, 2006 message continues

Messenger:        It snowed in Michigan after Father died —
                                it came down in sheets — pure and white


January 2, 1999

Mary speaks: I am Our Lady of Snows. I come to cover the earth with a soft white blanket of my love.

I come to bring peace to the earth. I tell you to let go of the anxiety in your heart and experience my peace and His love.

I am your heavenly Mother. I come to hold you and caress you and take you to my Immaculate Heart.
