Messenger:       Hopefully the Newsletter for the foreign priests
                                will arrive in China at the same time.
                                We will be sending the Newsletter to
                                72,000 priests. We need your help and
                                your prayers.

                            We think the foreign mailing will begin

                                week when the China retreat begins
                                that is night of June 9 until the
                                benediction on June 13.

                            June 13th is the Feast of St. Anthony and
                                the beginning of the Church at St.
                                Anthony's, our China Center, many

I Love You (excerpt)

(Letter for Front of B.B. II)
April 13, 1994

How, child, do I, Jesus, tell you I love you? You hold on to silly things, when God is in your midst and is ardently loving you. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I am writing to each precious child this day. I am on fire for love of you. I remain in the Eucharist to be with you with My ardent love. I did not want to leave My beloved ones at the Last Supper. I love you so, My dear and ardently loved children. I remain with you this day in the Blessed Sacrament, the same Jesus Who died a brutal death on the cross...

Messenger:       Examine conscience at least once daily
                                How have I offended others?

                                Dear God we pray for grace to see
                                    the patterned ways which
                                    hurt our union with you and
                                    hurt others.
                                    Help us to be merciful.
                                    We beg for your mercy and your
                                        forgiveness, ought we not
                                        to be forgiving and loving to others.

                                How have we given into a negative attitude
                                    that has blocked the work you want
                                    to do through me?

                                How have we failed to thank You for the
                                    tremendous gifts You have given
                                    to me?

                                Dear God help me to hear your call for
                                    my vocation in the Shepherds
                                    of Christ.

                                Help me to forgive others as I want
                                    You to forgive me.

                                Help me to be an apostle, spreading
                                    the messages of love God
                                    has given in the Blue Books.

                                Say slowly and with love for God and all


The Our Father

    Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.


Prayer for Union with Jesus

    Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

Messenger:           Dear God the Father, I offer up all my prayers and
                                    actions all day in union with Jesus
                                    in the Holy Spirit with all the angels
                                    and saints and the souls in purgatory
                                    praying for grace for healing for myself
                                    and healing for the world

                                    praying to be strengthened as your
                                        apostles of love

                                    not expecting others to make me
                                        feel better, but being joyful
                                        and thankful for all God has
                                        given to me also

                                I pray for grace to be joyful and
                                    thankful and to serve You God
                                    and love You and worship You
                                    You who are so worthy of my love.

Jesus speaks:         Love and forgiveness
                                praying for grace to be healed
                                learning to thank Me for the gifts
                                    you have been given

                                Some think they are perfect they
                                    do not admit their faults,
                                    they do not say they are sorry,
                                    they carry bags of bitterness
                                    like they carry their heart.

                                    all who have offended you your whole


                                    Sing: Give Me Your Heart Oh Jesus


                                Prayer for these 17 days

                                    Dear God help me to be other focused

                                    Help me to be a source of joy.
                                    Help me to thank You for the gifts
                                        You have given me.

                                    Help me not to block the work
                                        you have called us to do by
                                        focusing on myself

                                    When pilgrims come, help me
                                        to have grace to spread
                                        the message You have
                                        called me to spread.

                                    Dear God help me to be holy to see
                                        I am a little link in the big
                                        chain, a single link to help
                                        lead the world into oneness
                                        and love. When I focus on
                                        myself and do not do the work
                                        of being a light and I am
                                        to talk to pilgrims I can
                                        miss an opportunity to spread
                                        your love, through the materials,
                                        prayers, letters of love, consecration,
                                        morning offering You have asked
                                        me to spread.

                                    Dear God thank You for calling me to
                                        be an apostle, (handmaid, servant
                                        etc.) help me to do Your will.
