Anniversary of first Mass in China, Indiana

   Jesus told Fr. Carter to celebrate
the first Mass in China
on August 26, 1997.



He said Masses for 3 years August 26, 1997 - September 8, 2000.




Excerpt from August 26, 2002 message





August 26, 2002 message continues

Messenger:          I was thinking of how much went on in China, 

                        Indiana, 5 years ago when Fr. Carter said his first

                        Mass, August 26, 1997.

                            I just didn't think it would ever end when

                        Fr. Carter went with me on the long drives to

                        China and we talked always about Jesus

                        and heaven and the future of the Movement.


On the way to China





August 26, 2002 message continues

Messenger:     There was so much time to get it all in order

                        and the plan Jesus had for the Movement. 

                        We talked about the writings and Jesus gave

                        me deep insight into things and I would soon

                        see the topic in the Newsletters.

                            Father Carter's Newsletters and my writings

                        are so interlocked. He was the mystical priest,

                        the doctor theologian, the Jesuit, the one

                        who stopped to do his 10 minute examination,

                        in the car on the way to China

                        or pray his office, which he prayed every day.

                        He stopped in the car to prepare for his homily

                        he delivered in China to the servants and

                        handmaids and Fred.



August 26, 2002 message continues

Messenger:          The sunny days of so much light—

                        I felt the light in the car when I was with

                        him and many times I wished I had a tape

                        recorder for I knew Jesus gave me lights

                        just to tell him about things and soon it did go out

                        in the Priestly Newsletter, material about the spiritual

                        life with the mixture of insight from Jesus and the

                        writings of Fr. Carter, priest, doctor, Jesuit, mystic and

Mary speaks: My sweet children,

Do not be divided.

Listen to my Son. He loves you so much.

Please listen and help me.

I cry, my children. I cry to you.

It is not too late.

Please help me, my children.

Help me, my children. My Son gives His message of intimate love in God's Blue Books to lead you to the Eucharist.

I love you so much. I thank you for all you have done. I do not scold you . I ask you to follow the Father's plan. Please. Souls are at stake. Help me.

I am Mary, Our Lady of the Holy Spirit.

I Stress Again the Importance of Consecration

Mary speaks: My little children, I am the handmaid of the Lord. I live to serve Him, when you bow to rightly exercised authority you bow to Him. Today authority is often misused. All power comes from God. All power will be under His feet. My children, I ask you to study the vision of Lucia. (In The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje pg. 32)

I ask you to see that my King is the King, all are subject to Him.

Every priest must see himself as acting to please the King, Jesus.

Jesus is to be the King in every Church. It is Jesus who should reign from His throne in every church in America and throughout the world.

America, many of your churches have dethroned my Son Jesus. You must put Him in a place of honor and worship and bow before Him.

My Son Jesus wishes to be honored on His throne, the tabernacle.

Priests must act as servants of the Lord. All power is under Him.

In the Reign of the Sacred Heart, He will be the King of all hearts, homes, churches, etc.

I stress again the importance of consecration.

What is consecration? When I speak of consecration, I am asking my children to give their hearts to Our pure and holy Hearts.

The Shepherds of Christ members greet one another with the phrase, "I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you, in love." I suggest you greet one another with this phrase. I suggest that children and teachers in schools begin every school day with at least this phrase. I suggest parents and children bind their families in unity with this phrase. Your churches will become little cities of light when the people and the priest pray a short consecration before Mass. I recommend the consecration given from My Son Jesus in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual as a powerful aid in bringing about the Reign of His Sacred Heart and the Triumph of my Immaculate Heart.

I love you so dearly, my little children. Do you want your earth blazing with the fire of God's love? Come into Our holy Hearts. Give your hearts to my Heart and the Heart of my Son Jesus.

This, my little children will bind you in oneness with one another and you will dwell in Our Hearts, your little heaven on earth.

Do you want peace on your earth? My children you must do as I have requested at Fatima.

I wish all homes and businesses, churches and schools to be consecrated to Our Hearts.

I wish all hearts to be consecrated to Our Hearts.

The prayers My Son gives in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual are the prayers He wishes you to pray for the renewal of the Church and the world and to pray for holy priests.

The Litanies give great honor to Our Hearts. The consecration in the Prayer Manual will help you to consecrate your hearts to Us. At Fatima I told you to pray the rosary.

Now I wish to stress this, my little children, you will be joined in great love and harmony as God's little children when you give your hearts to me and My Son Jesus. This is what I mean by consecration. It is a renewing of the vows made by your godparents at Baptism when they gave you to your God. Now you give your hearts in consecration to Our pure and holy Hearts.

You pray "I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love."

August 26, 2000 message

Messenger:  At the end of January, 1992, I was given a message from Jesus that I would suffer.

Next, I lost my voice and I had trouble breathing. It was the key that helped me let go of my teaching jobs in colleges, my position in a special choir, and my job as organist and choir director at a small church.

Here is a letter I began to write to Jesus and the message God gave back to me.

My first letters with Jesus were a lot of dialogue. I would write and He would speak to me as I opened up my heart to Him.

Many times He woke me in the night with a lengthy message.

This is a letter I wrote to Him March 17, 1992, when I was having a lot of trouble breathing and talking.

He was working in my suffering to help me let go of all I was doing so I could be His messenger. It was a great time of trial when I couldn't breathe very well or couldn't use my voice very well. All my jobs depended on it. It was from this cross that I was given my voice to do what I am doing today. I had to surrender to His plan-I couldn't use my voice as I had done in the past.

When I finally quit most everything about 1 1/2 years later, I had my voice to do His work, to do this job.

In this suffering, He led me to do His will.

St. John the Baptist's father lost his voice.

St. John the Baptist's mother was barren.

St. John the Baptist was the 'VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE DESERT'.

I prayed to do His will and He helped me find His will. Through great suffering and surrender I was given greater life in Him.

The story of my struggle in doing His will and losing my voice is accounted in an entry in Blue Book III which appears at the end of this message.

Jesus wanted the message of March 17, 1992, presented today, that we can carry it with us and live by it. We must surrender and let Him run our lives and do His will. Some of the greatest trials are the way He leads us on the right path for us.

March 17, 1992

Note:  I couldn't breathe again. From my notebook I wrote:

Dear Jesus,

I am not feeling calm, I am so grateful for being able to breathe. I know an inner voice during the movie said, I will be okay. Please help me Jesus, I need you.

God: I am your God and I love you, you are precious to Me. Remember how I loved you to My death. This is the season of Lent, a time to look and listen and learn all you can about Christ and His passion. I am telling you of My great love for you and all My children. Hold close to Me and do not be tempted to go astray, keep your eyes fixed on the eternal end, the bright and beautiful light, your glory, for your reward will be great in heaven. Keep the glory of the Lord in heaven in front of your eyes.

Don't look for worldly pleasures and satisfaction here on earth. Love and give to others and forgive and know your reward will be great in heaven.

I will show you the path to follow. Listen attentively and be calm. In conflict don't react, practice removing yourself from that. It isn't necessary to criticize, to shame, to hurt, to bargain for who is right and who is wrong. Hold on to peace and love and joy and happiness. Hold My hand and see My light. See the big, big picture. The answers are in you, I love you and I will teach you what you need to know. Be still and listen, I want to instruct you, I am talking to you now in your heart. I love you always, stay close to Me and know I am your God.

Messenger: You are my God and You love me, I am Your temple. I know You go with me with Your rod and Your staff protecting me and giving me comfort and hope and love and joy and peace. The moments I spend now will be gone in 5 minutes.

I want to spend this time with You, I don't want to be anywhere else, I want to know Your presence , Your warmth, Your love.

God: You are powered by Me. You are My child, you are precious and you know it. You are special to Me, hold tight to Me. I love you, My chosen daughter.

Messenger: Create in me, Oh Lord, a CLEAN heart, Oh Lord--create in me a clean heart.

I offer up my suffering to You.

God, help me live my precious moments.

God, help me.

Thank you, I love you.

Walk in the Way of the Light

God's Blue Book III Cover

May 9, 1994 After Communion

Messenger: Our feet carry us about in this world. We do not think much about our feet and how they do this job.

I have received visions of feet. In 1978, when I received a gift from God, I saw a shoe and I heard the verse, "Walk in the way of the Light."

I have a free will. My path must be the path set by the Master. He leads, I follow. His ways are not always the ways I want to follow. I sometimes do not want to forgive. I do not want to let go of hurts when I have been wronged. I want to hold on and be angry. Walk in the way of the Lord! I do not want to obey when I have a letter that is not nice, but that I must deliver. I would rather be popular and not cause any discomfort. "Walk in the way of the Lord."

Is this the same as doing His Will? I wanted to sing in the choir at the Athenaeum. I liked it. I felt important. I was singing beautiful songs to God. He took my voice away! I finally saw what His Will was for me. I wanted something very much. He didn't want me there.

I can see now so many things I wanted. I wanted to play the music at daily Mass. 'What a good thing to do!', you say? He wanted me to go to Mass and listen to His words and spend time in adoration after Mass and write these letters.

I wanted to get my children through college. I continued to teach. I lost my voice and I was miserable. I wanted to spend my time with Jesus. I spent some time with Him, but I had to work, too. I couldn't talk so I wrote up long lectures and tried to make it work. It made me miserable. For two years and two months, my voice was almost entirely out of commission but I still received special recognition for teaching. I worked hard to do a good thing. Teaching is a good thing. He was calling me to be writing these letters. I did my will and wrote some, but it was misery. I couldn't breathe because my vocal chords would swell and I had trouble breathing. Did I listen? When do we listen?

God speaks in the inner promptings of our hearts. The more I listened, the more I heard, the more I realized that I must have no preconceived ideas of what is to happen. He directs me. I knew these things were good things. I knew I was doing His Will.

I was a teacher. I went to school all those years. I had to teach. It was right. But it wasn't His Will! I can't try to think and make sense out of what is a good thing. I have to listen and wait for His answer-when He gives it. I know in my heart what He is saying, like it or not. His Will is His Will, not mine. They might be the same, or they might be entirely different, but I have to do His Will!

His Will He makes clear in the inner promptings of my heart. He speaks directly to me. I must be still to hear. I have to pray every day to the Holy Spirit for His gifts. When He tells me His Will, I know it is what He wants me to do. I don't figure it out. I am told and I know I have to do it. Then He nags me until I do. To me it is like a toothache. It stops when I do His Will. It bothers me until I do it.

He told me this morning that I am not perfect. I was being pushed by my son and I got angry. Then I felt, "What is the use? I got angry. Now give it all up." He said, "You are not perfect. Say you are sorry and move on."

In my pride, I think I should be perfect and know all things and never be learning His way. His way He makes clear to us in the inner promptings of our hearts. I am human. I fall, I say I am sorry, I learn a lesson. I do not get angrier and keep on being nasty or mean and then say, "Well, this is the end of this." In humility, I say I am sorry and move on to serving our precious Lord Who loves us so. This is His way!

Jesus speaks: Walk in My way, My dear children. Walk. Your feet carry you down the road. Follow the road of the Master. If you take a bad turn, get back on the road. I am leading. I am waiting. I am walking with you where you walk. I never leave you. You move away from Me. I stay steadfastly by you.

Oh, child, be humble. Do not let pride and anger eat at your heart. When you are wrong, admit it and do My Will. I am calling you to follow Me. Follow My path. It is the only way to your happiness and peace of mind. Wherever you go, My sweet one, you never travel alone. I am with you. Love, love, love. Do not let Satan work in your head.

If I am telling you to do something, do it, even if it is unpleasant. This is what teaches you the way of the Lord. The more you obey Me, the more you hear Me. I am God. I do not necessarily communicate as you do. I may use your senses, but I do not need them to talk to you. I do not need words. I give you promptings. You know when I speak to you and you know you must follow.

Open yourselves up to Me. Pray to be open and to know how to listen to Me. I am God and I want to tell you all you need to know. No one can speak to you as I do in your heart. Come and be with Me in silence and let Me talk to you. I love you so, dear ones. I will never steer you wrong.

Messenger: He never told me, in the letters, to get out of the chorale. I had to hear it in my heart after much misery, as I was holding on. I went to the doctor. I took voice lessons (with no voice) for two years and two summers. I continued to take voice lessons with no voice! I took antibiotics, and could hardly breathe, but I kept teaching the next year. Did He tell me to quit? No, He waited until after I had quit and then said, "You will not have any problem with your voice if you do not teach."

He gives us promptings in our hearts. He wants us to hear with our hearts. He taught me about His ways in the letters. Things about my life I had to hear in my heart. He communicates in our hearts, directly to us. Doing His Will is doing His Will. Do we cover up what He says and do what we want? Every time I do not listen to Him I move farther from Him and I hear less because my pipeline is not clear.

I cannot disobey Him ever or I cannot stand it. If I don't do His Will, I am miserable. If the whole world hates me, I still want to do His Will.

Messenger:        God gives us a free will

                            Thank Him —

                            Today many TV shows, show
                                us stories in which people
                                act against someone's
                                free will.

                            Some are awful shows. Oppression ...

                            God loves us so much
                                He is our Creator
                                And He gives us a free will.

                            In relationships trust is a big thing.
                            Our life here is learning relationships.
                            Loving God — having a relationship with God.
                            Loving one another having relationships with
                                each other.

                            A child being under a parent teaches them
                                about authority and that relationship.

                            Our relationship with God, is that we
                                are under Him.

                            Our relationship with a superior,
                                under the Bishop, Pope etc.
                                teaches us about structure.


1 Corinthians 15: 20-28

    In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first–fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first–fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. But when it is said everything is subjected, this obviously cannot include the One who subjected everything to him. When everything has been subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the One who has subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.

Messenger:        The only way to have real peace is
                                to live according to God's will
                                in love.

                            God gives us a free will and we can
                                go against God's commandments,
                                and disobey what we should

                            A person at the bank, must respect and
                                obey the president or they will
                                not be around very long.

                            A husband and wife may have a
                                mutual relationship — that
                                relationship is a "give & take"
                                relationship, a mutual relationship.

                                Many convents and seminaries
                            have closed because the world
                            can teach "I don't want anyone
                            telling me what to do".

                                A young man was called to priesthood,
                            he knew he was called, but he did
                            not want to be under a Bishop.

                                Many people begin their own
                            companies, work alone because
                            they don't want anyone telling them
                            what to do.

                                Many marriages fail (so large a
                            percent) because the people want-
                            what-they-want and can not act

                                People with problems with authority
                            from the past (strong father or mother may
                            have hurt them) may have trouble
                            with authority their whole life,
                            always trying to work out their
                            unfinished business with someone
                            else (projection).

                            Some clearly have said since they
                                left home — "nobody will tell
                                                    me what to do."

                                Some people are so willful they just
                            refuse to do what they are asked to
                            do. This stops work and in ordinary
                            businesses the person is immediately

                                When you look at all the people
                            working in the world — one can see
                            that there are a lot of people
                            learning obedience and doing the
                            work asked of them. Even at the local
                            food chain, people must work together
                            and are under a boss.

                                God tells us we must obey the
                            Father, the commandments — do His
                            will — The lesson in the garden
                            is obedience to God. Eve wanted to be equal
                            to God.

                                A person that works independently
                            without a boss, may be one that
                            would not obey anyone, a boss
                            at work etc.

                                A person that has ability to
                            sing, do the computer,
                            business etc. — has the talent
                            because it was given by
                            God to do His work.

                                Look at all the talented
                            people who use their talents
                            dishonorably against God's will.

                                My talent to sing, if I can
                            sing is a gift from God, given to
                            serve Him according to His will.

Messenger:        The Things of the will —

                            If I know God is telling me one thing
                                and I selfishly do something else —
                                do I think I will be happy?

                            Some people can be raped — this is awful —
                                when someone violates another
                                physically against their will.

                            Some people can be oppressed.

                            We discipline our own will in following
                                God's will for us.

                            Not following God's will, will lead to
                                unhappiness, sin and greater sin

                            People who justify themselves habitually
                                for selfish reasons and disobey
                                the commandments can lead
                                a very unhappy life.

                            A child of 18 may leave the house
                                and think he can drink and
                                smoke and eat all he wants —
                                maybe engage in sexual promiscuity,
                                but he is never happy —
                                he soon learns —
                                he can't do everything he
                                    wants —

                            drinking too much, abusing the body
                                has problems later —
                                smoking too much has problems
                                eating too much has problems.

                            God gives us a free will, but he
                                gives us a body to learn how
                                we must discipline our will —
                                we can't stay up all night
                                and all day — we must sleep —
                                exercise — eat right etc —

                            If we see how God has set up these
                                helps for us to discipline our
                                will —

                            We should understand the commandments
                                are commandments from God
                                and we are told to obey them.

                            We must discipline our will.

                            Some people think if they feel a certain
                                way, they should act accordingly.
                                We must not give into old memories
                                that lead us into places that lead
                                us into sin.

                            Satan can work by tempting us
                                through old memories, feelings
                                etc. and if we give in we can
                                sometimes be choosing bad
                                actions over good.

                                The will - God gave us is
                            a free will, but one of the lessons
                            we must learn is to discipline it —
                            do God's will —

                                Not our will if it is not God's will

                                We may think
                                "Who will know?"

                                God knows every thought we
                            have — He reads our hearts — He
                            knows the purity of our intentions.
                            He knows our selfishness, pride

                                He knows when we sin —
                                We don't fool God!

Put God First

Messenger: If I live to do what God wants, if I live to love God, this should be my measuring stick as to how I act.

Do I act to impress you? Who are you that I judge my actions by you? God is my Master. He is the King. It is He for whom I operate. I must always act out of the love of God. What does God want me to do? When I talk to you, I must operate to do the will of the Father. The end result is that I operate for love of God.

When I am talking to you about any matter, we are sharing the love of God that powers each of us. If you are in authority, you are in authority, but I still operate from the love of God within, to do His will and do my work. If you tell me not to do something, if you are my superior, I must obey you (unless you tell me to do something sinful) because God tells me to obey my superiors, but my actions are directed by His love and to please Him, not to please you and impress you.

People are changeable, God is consistent. We should operate for love of God. This is such freedom! I must be kind and loving as Christ is loving, I operate to do His will.

God, help me to always follow You. You are my God and I shall have no other gods.


My God, You are truly present in the Eucharist. You are the same Jesus that died on the cross. You are as present in the consecrated host as You were the day You died on Calvary. My precious God, help me to spread belief in Your true presence. Help me to always reverence You and never offend You when I receive You or touch the Sacred Host! You are truly Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Give us vision to live for the love of God, to put Him first in our lives, to not make other persons and things gods, but to realize You are God and treat all others with the love and respect they deserve as Your creation. Open our eyes, O Holy Spirit, so we can see where we are so blind, so we can know the truths that God wants to reveal to us.

Help me to live to put God first in my life and love my brothers as myself. You are God. To You I bow and give You praise. Who am I that God comes to me in the Eucharist and waits for me in the tabernacle? Who am I that God dwells in me in my heart? Oh, I love you so, my precious God.

Love Me First Above All Things

Jesus speaks: There is not division where there is love. If you love Me you will keep My commands. My commands I give to you, love God, love one another. A person fixed in love of God will do the Father’s will. That which leads to perfect peace and happiness is complying to the will of My Father.

My dear ones, there is no other way. You want your wills, your feelings are hurt, you want to do things according to your plan. I tell you, unless you follow My way, you will not enter into the Kingdom of heaven.

I call you to holiness in all things, to put aside your selfishness and willfulness and put Me first. The greatest Commandment is to love God first with your whole heart and whole soul.

Do you love Me more than you love yourself? Are you putting My will before your own? If you do not follow the greatest Commandment, how do you expect to win the reward promised to those who love and serve the Lord?

I call you to total consecration to Our Hearts. You want it your way.

There is only one road. The road is to love Me first above all things. The road is service according to the will of the Father. Doing "good works" is not necessarily doing Our will. The will of the Father is doing His will even when you do not want to, when you would rather do it your own way.

Open up your hearts. Pray first to the Spirit to open your minds and hearts, beg to serve God, give yourself to God and come. Do as you are commanded. Love of God before ALL things.

Do you love Me before yourself? The first Commandment commands you to put God first. Do you do it your way and tell yourself it is God’s will?

My way is the only way. All other ways lead you to problems. Why don’t you believe that I am Almighty, that I know all things? Why won’t you surrender and do as you are told?

Be as babies at the breast, do as you are told. Beg to know the will of the Father. This is made clear to you in the inner promptings of your heart. Sit with God after Communion and in front of the tabernacle. Your answers are given there. You must learn to listen to God. He has the plan for your life.

My children, My children, My willful children, do you want things done your way, do you ponder and arrive at your conclusions, or are you striving to do My will? The will of the Father is made clear in your hearts in front of the tabernacle, in the silent moments you spend alone with God. Beg the Spirit to give you His gifts, to open your minds and hearts.

Do not be willful, strive to do only His will. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I give you the way to eternal life. Give up your attachments to your own ways and follow ME.

I am the Way, I am Truth and Life (Jn 14:6), He that comes to Me will have the light of life. Come and follow Me.

Title: You Are the Reflection of the God That Lives Within You

R.  How He loves us - that He gives us a free will.

He is the Almighty God. He has all the power, but He gives us our free will. He watches us gently. He watches us with love. We do our willful things and pay Him no heed.

    It is indeed through the Spirit whereby our eyes are opened to see that which we may never see. He is our God. He leads us on our path if we come with our heart open. Implant in me, oh Spirit, vision to see where You are leading me.

   He is so pleased by a single act of mine to please His holy will! Father, help me to know Your will. Spirit, give me the strength to follow it. Jesus, let me walk in Your footsteps to be more like You. Jesus, make my heart likened to Yours in all things. Make me meek and humble in my heart, open and sinless. Let me see with the eyes of God and feel with Your gentle Heart, all that You so graciously teach me. Open me to the gifts of the Spirit.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I am Yours. I consecrate my life to Your Heart and that of Your Mother. Father, mold me, fashion me into the image of Christ, Your Son, so I no longer hold onto the perishable things of this world but live to please You as You created me to do. I love You so, dear God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I come to You through the Immaculate Heart of my Mother. I lay myself prostrate at Your feet. I am Yours Lord. I am Yours.

Jesus speaks:  You are My instrument to reach many. Do not worry, pray, pray to the Spirit always before you begin anything. Let Him fill you with His grace. You are to be a humble servant, to live to serve God. You live to serve Me in all things. This is My life for you, one of service. You must be humble to do this work. Put desires of the self aside and work with your relationship with Me. I operate you. I give you all you need. Live to serve Me. Live to love your brothers and help lead them to heaven.

     I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I have spoken to you here. Heed My word, be attentive to My promptings. I am your God and you shall have no gods before Me. Be selfless, be unattached. I live in you. Be ready to do always the will of the Father, to be busy about the work of the Lord.

R.  Alleluia, they received new direction in their lives, their hearts were open to the power of the Spirit and His life was within them.

Jesus speaks:  For you, My child, were hungry and you were nourished by God Himself, Who comes to feed you and warms you in the furnace of His most tender Heart. Alleluia, Alleluia, Praise the Lord. Pray for strength. It is in this strength from God that My work will be accomplished in you. You are but a servant come to serve the Lord. Look at yourself as one who serves God. You do not function for any self-promotion, you function for love of God.

R.  And He came and imparted to them His strength and they knew a new dimension in their life, it was the life of God so alive within their soul and they were a vibrant force in the lives of all they touched. His might shown forth like a raging lion, but their manner was that of the gentle lamb, for He was present in them and He acted from them and all knew this God that lived within their breasts.

Jesus speaks:  My child, I live in you in this world, I am in you. You are the reflection of the God that lives within you. Open yourselves up and let Me permeate your souls. Let me possess your being, let Me operate in your hearts. Be My light to this world. Be as one who lives to spread the life and love of this one true, magnificent God. Be Me to your brothers. Live to serve and love Me.

    I am God and I have spoken to you, My little scared ones. I come to strengthen you. Pray for this strength and open your hearts to Me and the will of the Father.

Title: Do Not Be Anxious Or Hurried, Your Savior Loves You

R. Forgive me Jesus, Father and Holy Spirit for all the times I focus on myself, especially to think I am in any way better than my brother.

    Help me to see the beautiful creation of God the Father, in each person, to respect and love them as you, God, love them, to realize we are brothers in Christ. God is our Father and we are brothers. To not love my brother is to not love God. How can I hate my brother whom I see and love my God whom I do not see?

    I want to love as You want me to. I am self-centered. Please give me all I need, Spirit of God, to love as God wants me to. Please remove the blinders from my eyes to see God, the Father's loving creation, in each brother.

    I am Yours, Lord, I consecrate my life to Your Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I am not going anywhere. I must be in the moment as You choose me to be. Whatever You ask of me is what I should be doing. Getting anxious is useless. Just live to do what You are asking me to do and do it the best I can, whether carrying groceries or playing with my children.

   My time is Your time. You loan it to me to work for You. I must do the best job I can for You with Christ acting out of me.

Jesus speaks:  My child, don't be anxious or hurried. I am your precious Savior and I love you. You want for nothing if you know My love. I give My love to you abundantly. Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it will be opened unto you. Stay fixed to My Sacred Heart and that of My Mother's heart. I am your all. Put things in perspective. Live to serve Me - I come first. Operate and love - this is your job. To show the love of God in your actions. Your actions must flow from your love for Me. Do not be anxious, be forever steadfast in My precious love.

Alleluia, Alleluia.
