Messenger:         A problem can be a
           process of going to a new place.

             In the death there is the

             Prayer is the gateway to God's

             Are we not always in the hands
           of Jesus, why if we believe this
           would we fail to communicate to Him?

             Satan wants to block communication
           in our lives.

             God has communicated to us in
           these messages and yet so many
           fail to see that oneness is brought
           about through loving communication.

             I prayed and prayed to God and
           He answered me. He answered me
           in His Word. He answered me
           in His Blue Books — He answered me
           with others, with His Movement.

             His Movement is an answer to
           prayer and the world's problems, but if we
           fail ourselves to recognize how strongly
           God is teaching us — we will challenge
           the mode of delivery, complain, go
           to other sources.

             A lady went down a road and
           fell in a hole, the next day she
           did the same and the same, she was
           so upset she prayed and the answer
           was different than going down the
           same road and falling in the same
           hole, but she wouldn't listen —
           she knew the road and she just kept
           doing the same thing over and over again
           getting the same results.

             A man thought the end was near — he
           told everyone and he worked them all up —
           everyone was so upset — his whole
           delivery in which he wiped out
           the city was based on one untrue thought.
           If we act this way we can make our
           own grave!!!

             When faced with a problem
           I will not quit.

             There are "can do" people that
           get the job done — there are people
           who never get in the saddle.

             There are people who follow the
           wrong road to be "smarter" than someone
           else. Are they really "smarter"

             What is important to some is being
           right, looking perfect — before they
           start, they have a problem for they
           are imperfect human persons.

             Pride is an enemy of the soul.
           You may look for relief to a problem
           and make a big mess. God calls us
           to wait on His timing — to pray, to
           act when He wants us to.

             Despair is a terrible thing —
           for the person has lost hope.

             The 3 Cardinal virtues are
           Faith, Hope and Charity —

             We pray for these, Faith, Hope
           and Charity.

             God is always with us in
           every trial, but if we lie to ourselves
           about what the truth is about
           the problem, we have added the
           confusion satan wants before we

             Truth is a rudder. We must
           embrace the truth even when it
           hurts and we don't like it. Lying to
           ourselves is just plain stupid!!

             When Mary had an important
           problem to settle she asked Jane
           who was involved the facts — Jane
           lied, because Jane didn't want
           to look like she was anything but
           perfect. The whole company suffered
           for where Jane made a bad move and
           acted in anger the company
           could have recuperated had Mary
           been told the truth — but Jane had
           already hurt the Company and lots of
           people and she didn't care — all she
           cared about was if she looked perfect,
           not the Company, not the people she
           hurt. She added insult to injury
           because of her pride — her true
           love of building the Kingdom of God
           and loving others was not there at all.

             She gave into the weakness in
           her and continued to be right on the
           surface — wearing a white dress and
           watching an avalanche of problems
           and people getting hurt to protect her

Jesus speaks:       In the end there will be
           NO MORE LIES.

             If people let go of pride — then
           they could lovingly work out the
           problems in peace, but where one
           thinks more of themselves and is prideful
           they come into the worktable with
           impure motives — they FOCUS ON
           THEM Selves — always - themselves —

             Some people get so pressed on
           by the devil — they don't even see
           where they are and what they are
           doing —

             They want to be the main attraction
           and they will fight to get it at
           all costs.

             A cup was old and dirty
           and a lady wanted some water
           to drink — she went to wash
           out the dirt and drink pure
           sparkling water —

             Why drink from a dirty
           cup? Flush out the debris —
           You can get sick from the

             You suffer from impure,
           untruthful, unholy ways.

             You may as well drink
           from a really dirty cup and
           then wonder if you will
           get sick.

             Put your tainted heart
           in the heart of Mary. She is
           the sinless Mother.

             Make your heart a bed of
           love for Me this Christmas. Beg
           for grace to put your impure
           ways aside.

             Come as a little baby with
           a pure heart, dwell in the
           heart of My Mother — she
           is your Mother — you think you
             are so big now — being big
             to you may be being prideful,
             above everybody else, in
             control. Does this bring a
             child peace?

             Mary was a 12 year old girl —
           she felt free when she argued
           with her mother over some matter
           and left her mother looking
           bewildered and upset. At school
           Mary had trouble fitting in,
           she felt disempowered, she came
           home and "nailed" her mother
           getting power over her — then
           she felt better.

             Mary was called to the religious
           life — she tried the same thing
           on all her superiors to get power —
           she went from convent to convent —
           no one could put up with Mary's
           dysfunction. She had to be over
           her superior — so she tried
           to emotionally control

Messenger:        God is teaching us
           we eat good — we have
           a strong healthy body.

             If we fill our spiritual
           self with junk — we will
           have problems.

             We have to get rid of anger,
           resentment, hatred from the
           past and quit lying that we
           never have any or ever had

             We must pray to the Holy Spirit
           to fill our hearts with love.
           Jesus ascended into heaven —

             The Holy Spirit came upon them
           in fire —

             God's love is on fire —
             We need to burn off the anger —
             We need the Holy Spirit to fill us.

           Jesus gave us Himself in the Eucharist.
           Jesus sent the Holy Spirit upon them.
           Jesus left His Mother behind.
           At Pentecost was Mary and the Holy Spirit and
           the Apostles, Children of the Church

           The Holy Spirit is renewing us —
             filling us with fire —
             helping us to be fearless

           The Church is bringing forth children
             from Mary the Mother —
             in the Holy Spirit —
             The Church is the Bride of Christ —

           "Trees do bend though straight and tall"

           Sing:  Hosea

           Sing:  Come Holy Spirit Come

           Holy Spirit help us in our
                            urgent needs —
           Wash us in the Blood of the Lamb.

           Fear is an enemy many times —
           Fear of thoughts —
           Fear of what might happen —

           Trust is the answer
           Oneness with God —

           Every minute of every day united
             to the Mass —
             — our lives offered as a sacrifice
               to Him - united to the Mass
             — my intentions offered to God in
               living according to God's will
               in love

             God help us —
             We surrender to You —
             We give our lives united to
               the Mass for these

Jesus speaks:   Don't think that by praying that
             I will alleviate all suffering —
             Your sufferings are like the
             rain needed for the foliage
             to grow

           Suffering teaches you lessons.

           How do people go from point A to
             a better place point B in
             their spiritual life —
             especially if they do not pray.
             Sufferings are the staircase to trust.

           Pray today December 13th as you have
             NEVER prayed before —

           Let go —

           Today is the Feast of St. Lucy.
           She is the patroness of the blind.

Messenger:     Having problems can help us
             stay close to God —
             We depend on Him —
             He answers our prayers
             FAITH, HOPE, LOVE



Zephaniah 3: 1-2, 9-13 

Disaster to the rebellious,
    the befouled,
the tyrannical city!
She has not listened to the call,
she has not bowed to correction,
she has not trusted in Yahweh,
she has not drawn near to her God.

Yes, then I shall purge
the lips of the peoples,
so that all may invoke
    the name of Yahweh
and serve him shoulder to shoulder.
From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia,
my suppliants will bring me tribute. 

When that Day comes
you will never again be ashamed
    of all the deeds
with which you once rebelled against me,
for I shall rid you
of those who exult in your pride;
never again will you strut
on my holy mountain.
But in you I shall leave surviving
a humble and lowly people,
and those who are left in Israel
will take refuge in the name of Yahweh.
They will do no wrong,
will tell no lies;
nor will a deceitful tongue
be found in their mouths.
But they will be able to graze and rest
with no one to alarm them.


Matthew 21: 28-32

‘What is your opinion? A man had two sons. He went and said to the first, "My boy, go and work in the vineyard today." He answered, "I will not go," but afterwards thought better of it and went. The man then went and said the same thing to the second who answered, "Certainly, sir," but did not go. Which of the two did the father’s will?’ They said, ‘The first.’ Jesus said to them, ‘In truth I tell you, tax collectors and prostitutes are making their way into the kingdom of God before you. For John came to you, showing the way of uprightness, but you did not believe him, and yet the tax collectors and prostitutes did. Even after seeing that, you refused to think better of it and believe in him.
