    From Today's Mass

Jeremiah 26: 11-16, 24

The priests and prophets then said to the chief men and all the people, ‘This man deserves to die, since he has prophesied against this city, as you have heard with your own ears. Jeremiah, however, replied to all the chief men and all the people as follows, Yahweh himself sent me to prophesy against this Temple and this city all the things you have heard. So now amend your behaviour and actions, listen to the voice of Yahweh your God, and Yahweh will relent about the disaster that he has decreed for you. For myself, I am, as you see, in your hands. Do whatever you please or think right with me. But be sure of this, that if you put me to death, you will be bringing innocent blood on yourselves, on this city and on its inhabitants, since Yahweh has truly sent me to you to say all this for you to hear. The chief men and all the people then said to the priests and prophets, This man does not deserve to die: he has spoken to us in the name of Yahweh our God. But Jeremiah had a protector in Ahikam son of Shaphan, so he was not handed over to the people to be put to death

 

Psalm 69: 15-16, 30-31, 33-34

Let not the waves wash over me,
    nor the deep swallow me up,
nor the pit close its mouth on me.

Answer me, Yahweh, for your faithful love is generous;
in your tenderness turn towards me;

I will praise God’s name in song, 
I will extol him by thanksgiving, 
for this will please Yahweh more than an ox, 
than a bullock horned and hoofed.

For God listens to the poor,
he has never scorned his captive people.
Let heaven and earth and seas,
and all that stirs in them, acclaim him!

   

Matthew 14: 1-12

At that time Herod the tetrarch heard about the reputation of Jesus and said to his court, ‘This is John the Baptist himself; he has risen from the dead, and that is why miraculous powers are at work in him.’

Now it was Herod who had arrested John, chained him up and put him in prison because of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife. For John had told him, ‘It is against the Law for you to have her.’ He had wanted to kill him but was afraid of the people, who regarded John as a prophet. Then, during the celebrations for Herod’s birthday, the daughter of Herodias danced before the company and so delighted Herod that he promised on oath to give her anything she asked. Prompted by her mother she said, ‘Give me John the Baptist’s head, here, on a dish.’ The king was distressed but, thinking of the oaths he had sworn and of his guests, he ordered it to be given her, and sent and had John beheaded in the prison. The head was brought in on a dish and given to the girl, who took it to her mother. John’s disciples came and took the body and buried it; then they went off to tell Jesus. 

  

August 5, 2006 message continues

Messenger:         I put a piano in my room and we weren't
                        sure where it should go. One place was
                        just right and the others weren't — the room
                        was small and when we found the spot, it
                        was just right — all the others just
                        didn't work.

                            One wall was too short, another it would
                        have been in the way — We couldn't move
                        the wall — only the piano.

                            Trees do bend though straight and tall —
                        "Bend the stubborn heart and will.
                        I remember it was a person's birthday and
                        a gift was given in my house and I
                        was not sure it was a good idea, but
                        I knew I had to bend because of love
                        so I did and later I experienced the
                        greatest gift because I could move
                        from a place where I was like a
                        wall that thought I could never move —
                        for the sake of love — I moved and I was           
                        rewarded.

                            When one loves miracles happen —
                        enemies begin to speak to each other —
                        bridges are built.

                            Well now I unite all I am doing knowing
                        it is God's will I write this united to the Holy Sacrifice
                        of the Mass going on around the world and
                        I pray for a particular intention — God
                        wants me to write this — grace is being
                        outpoured as I as a member of the Body of
                        Christ deeply unite to the Mass being
                        celebrated now — probably somewhere in Rome
                        or on the other side of the world. I am
                        His — I love Him — He provides for me
                        in all kinds of weather.

                            I saw an ad the other day — little
                        stuffed animals, cats and dogs were
                        coming down like rain and they were
                        landing on a wind shield of a car and
                        collecting at the bottom as the wind-shield
                        wiper, sort of whipped them away. It
                        made me smile because of the expression
                        "raining cats and dogs" and I never
                        saw any one have little stuffed animals, cats and
                        dogs coming down. It was a joke to
                        advertise something, but it made me
                        laugh. It was literal and funny.

                            We can be like a sitting bull on some
                        issues where we do things and yet the very
                        ways we have developed doing things
                        are not loving nor lend to oneness with
                        others.

                            So we look at the situation and we know
                        we aren't going to move — we don't even
                        see it as an option. We may think we do
                        everything right — or we don't think at
                        all and the person needing a job done—
                        which is God's will — stands in front of
                        us saying "you need to do this" and we go and
                        run around a mulberry bush, up a hill —
                        around the bend — come down and then
                        sometimes forget what we have to do. And
                        the person wanting the job done says —
                        DON'T RUN AROUND THE MULBERRY
                        BUSH, DON'T GO UP THE HILL, DON'T GO
                        AROUND THE BEND when I ask you
                        to do something, just do it without
                        your usual drill of stalling and
                        forgetting — FOR NO REASON.

                            Say there is a foreman running a
                        project and he has men under him and
                        they have a job to accomplish — At the
                        precise moment a man is needed to turn
                        a machine to make the other click — with
                        other men waiting for that turn on adjoining
                        machines. The man must be there and ready
                        to turn — So he has a problem ever obeying
                        orders — he wants to never be told what to
                        do — Just at the precise moment — he tells
                        the foreman — I have to go make a phone call,
                        go to the bathroom "whatever".

                            He won't be on that job very long. The
                        foreman wants the job done. Where one
                        guy does not have a problem obeying
                        orders — he would be docile — turn the
                        thing and not give it a thought and be
                        a great candidate for this communal
                        interaction — the job would get done in
                        the time anticipated.

                            We live in time and we live with
                        each other — We must work hand-in-hand
                        and be willing to follow orders when
                        we are under someone.

                            People can be like walls, stuck
                        in habits and unable to be moved. I
                        knew I wasn't moving the wall in the
                        room with the piano — only the piano
                        could move.

                            Habits learned can be like walls in
                        our lives, that hurt others and hurt
                        ourselves.

                            In heaven we will have greatest perfection
                        living in the Father's will.

                            Jesus is the Son of God —

                            Jesus obeyed the Father to His death on the cross —

                            Jesus obeyed the Father —

                            Jesus loved the Father —

                            Jesus loved those under Him —

                            God loved us imperfect creatures of
                        His so much — He sent His only begotten
                        Son for our Salvation.

                            We are disobedient and God still loves
                        us.

                            God looks down and sees our pride,
                        He knows the workings of our hearts.
                        He wants us to work with precision —
                        a "watch" working perfectly — in synch,
                        all the pieces interlocked.

                            Think of what a world we would have
                        if people could even see beyond their
                        blindness, live in God's truth and
                        live according to the will of God.

                            Life is not life if it is not
                        rooted in Him.

                            I gaze at the exposed Eucharist and
                        my soul is consumed with love for
                        the Divine God. I know His goodness
                        more and more — even in suffering — deep
                        suffering, I can go to Him in the
                        Eucharist and be with My Divine
                        God.

                            Trees do bend though straight and
                        tall. Women and men may have problems
                        communicating because they think
                        different or do not understand each other's
                        feelings, communication can break down
                        because of pride, a person under
                        another may decide "no one will ever
                        tell me what to do". How can you handle
                        such a wall when a job depends on
                        that part moving.

                            The Holy Spirit can fill the hearts with
                        openness and love.

                            In baptism we receive a special sharing in God's
                        Divine life. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell
                        in a special way in the baptized soul
                        in the state of grace.

                            Think of a community of people
                        where all are baptized and living
                        the ten commandments.

                            I want to be filled with God's
                        grace. I want oneness in Him.

                        If we are all baptized and living
                        according to God's commands — there
                        should be a special bond — right
                        there.

                            Sin is sin. Sometimes we sin
                        and stay stuck because of willfulness,
                        we remain blind, we can continue
                        sinning because we want something
                        so much and won't let go.

                            A married man cannot have an
                        affair with his unmarried, young,
                        secretary no matter how he justifies
                        it is love, he wants her, he should
                        have her. He has to let go of that
                        attachment to have peace — If he is
                        committed to another through a
                        sacrament of marriage in the
                        Church, then he must let go of
                        any ideas of his young secretary.
                        But he may not want to let go. He says to
                        himself "I want her, I don't want
                        to let go, I love her."

                            We pray to the Holy Spirit to enlighten
                        us, to open our hearts, to see where
                        we must go. We beg God to reveal His
                        will to us.

                            Many a marriage ended in divorce
                         because the person may have wanted
                        his wife and marriage and the secretary
                        on the side, but he may do all he
                        can to argue and lie to keep them both
                        going. His wife may be strong and
                        call it quits or give him an ultimatum
                        to quit flirting with the secretary,
                        but his will and his intentions, must
                        be in his own heart.

                            It is in his heart.

                            A person in a religious order —
                        takes vows — they obey the superior,
                        they live a celibate life — if they
                        never really decide to obey, they are
                        like a person on a fence — unpredictable —
                        sometimes they may, sometimes they may
                        not obey — then they will argue over
                        simple things.

                            A person that marries or enters
                        religious life — does not "flirt" with
                        others romantically — they make a commitment
                        to God to be faithful. The commitment
                        must be strong in the heart to start
                        with. A person could be tempted, but
                        this is very minimized because the
                        commitment is made and they do not
                        give into temptations to deviate from
                        their commitment.

                            A person who enters religious life
                        or is married and never really commits
                        whole-heartedly to their vocation has
                        a problem in their heart continually!!
                        Did they really marry Jesus?
                        Did they really marry their spouse?

                            Living one's vocation according to
                        God's will brings peace, love and happiness.
                        Living not according to God's will, disobeying
                        the commandments brings misery and
                        hurts not only ourselves, but many,
                        many others.

                            Living a life of Consecration to the
                        Hearts of Jesus and Mary is living
                        out more deeply our baptismal vows.
                        When we consecrate ourselves to the
                        Hearts of Jesus and Mary we live more
                        deeply God's will for us.

                        THE NEW ADAM  Jesus is God — He does the will of God —

                        THE NEW EVE  Mary perfectly obeyed the will of God —

                        Dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary make us
                            one —

                        If I dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary

                        If you dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

                        We are one in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.


                        Trees do bend though straight and tall —

                        Jesus loved us so much He died on the cross.

                        We must live by the truth.

                        We must follow God —

                        Loving doesn't mean I give into
                            any evil to keep you getting
                            your way.

                        I must follow God's way —
                            obey God — live in the truth.

 

John 15: 18-27

If the world hates you,
you must realise that it hated me
    before it hated you.
If you belonged to the world,
the world would love you as its own;
but because you do not belong to the world,
because my choice of you
    has drawn you out of the world,
that is why the world hates you.
Remember the words I said to you:
A servant is not greater than his master.
If they persecuted me,
they will persecute you too;
if they kept my word,
they will keep yours as well.
But it will be on my account
    that they will do all this to you,
because they do not know
    the one who sent me.
If I had not come,
if I had not spoken to them,
they would have been blameless;
but as it is they have no excuse
    for their sin.
Anyone who hates me hates my Father.
If I had not performed
     such works among them
as no one else has ever done,
they would be blameless;
but as it is, in spite of what they have seen,
they hate both me and my Father.
But all this was only to fulfil
     the words written in their Law:
They hated me without reason.
When the Paraclete comes,
whom I shall send to you from the Father,
the Spirit of truth
    who issues from the Father,
he will be my witness.
And you too will be witnesses,
because you have been with me
     from the beginning.

Excerpt from the rosary of August 19, 1997

Jesus: Come away with Me, My young ones. Come into the field and taste of the beauty of the air and the beauty of this day with the most beautiful flowers that I have created for you. Do you see the beauty in each petal of the flower, or are your eyes covered with mud that you do not see? I have lifted the veil for you today and I have showed you My way. My way is the way of trust and faith and I told you in the message on Sunday that you must have faith and endurance, for I took you to the darkest night to the pointiest tunnel, to the place where you thought that you would never return and at that point I opened up through a little hole the light of day and it came streaming in and you perceived and you felt My presence, which is greater than all the things of this earth.

    Wipe the grin off your face you silly earth, for you have ran after so many foolish things, when I stood there adorned in white before you, in the most glorious robes and you did not perceive that the Almighty God was alive and so I have called and I have told you and I have allowed you, My shepherds, to suffer, but the days ahead will be days of great victory, for I come to you clothed in white and adorned in a gold veil and you see that God lives and you will carry the white flag across this earth. You My shepherds, have won and the victory is yours.

    Did you fall in the mud and did you skin your knees, did you feel your head ache as Mine ached in the garden, did you feel the thorns poke deeply into your skull, and did you feel the ripping of your flesh as the sword went into your skin?

    I am Jesus, I am God, I will not be undone. I am Almighty and all powerful to the ends of the earth. You will know My might and you will not be afraid, but you will not know this if you do not trust, for I have told you the secrets in My messages, but you do not read as if you believe, you read half heartedly. You must believe with all your heart that I speak to you to be heard, for you truly are the shepherds that will go across this earth and carry the white flag, but you do not have this conviction within your heart, so therefore you do not do all that I have asked you to do, your belief is wishy-washy and you do not believe with a conviction of a strong heart.

    I am calling you My shepherds this night to renew your faith and your endurance to realize that I am God and I have spoken here to you this evening. I am alive, I am alive, I am alive and I am with you, I am your God.

    You wanted the light all the time and the light was not in the plan of the Father. It comes in light and it comes in darkness, it comes in death and it comes in victory, it comes in death and it comes in Resurrection, it comes in pain, and it comes in joy, but this world tells you today to look for only the joy and when you do not find it to do everything that you can to fill your selfish pleasurish whims that you have within you.

    I tell you that you must fall to your knees, that your knees will be scuffed and that you will suffer and your flesh will be torn and your head will be crowned with thorns, but you will come forth from the tomb with a veil of white across your face and you will say this is the victory that we have won because we have lived in Him.

Your Movement will spread forth to the far ends of the earth, but it is faith that I am calling you to My beloved ones, you must have faith in your hearts, for this is a sign that I give to you this day. If you do not believe, you will not be able to continue ahead, for you must move ahead in faith. It is the only way that you must operate. You cannot operate trying to logically think your way across this world. It is only in believing and obeying the messages that the job will get done. It is My might that will lead this Movement to the far corners of the earth. Open your pockets and let us see your money. Do you have the money to do the things that I have asked you to do? It is in prayer, hourly prayer and begging for the funds, realizing that it is in your prayer, that it is in your endurance, that it is in your faith and your sacrifices that your prayers will be answered. You must pray hourly the Novena to the Infant of Prague and I will answer your prayers, and you My beloved ones will know the results when you pray.

Jesus: I have given to you the greatest gift this day. I am Jesus, and I have come to you and I have asked you to open wide your heart and to thank Me for the gift I have given, for if the answer would have been different how would your hearts be this night, and how was it with the lepers, when I gave to them the great gift and they did not come and say thanks, but you are My holy ones that I am sending into this world and your hearts must be filled with joy. I have asked you over and over again to sing to Me with a heart that is filled with joy. I have given to you songs that I wrote Myself for you to sing of the love of My Heart. I am Jesus, the Son of God and you are the apostles of this new era. As you go out into the dark night the light will shine behind you and many will know the light of My Heart. Do not be discouraged, for the very hairs of your head are numbered and I am with you at this very moment, guarding and watching you, give Me your heart My shepherds. I have given to you a great gift this day, give Me your thanks and continue to pray. It is through prayer that you will accomplish all that the Father intends you to accomplish.

    I am Jesus, the Son of God. I have chosen you, I have called you and you will accomplish the work that the Father intends you to through prayer. Do not be discouraged, but encouraged for I am God and I am with you. Think of how it was before, when you did not share your love with so many others, but I have given you each other and I have bound your hearts in one heart and you come here because your hearts are filled with great joy. The more you love and the more the Movement spreads, the more will be the blessings, for as the love expounds and gets larger, the love is more full, for your love is rooted in Me and the more you love deeply the more full the love you will have. This is how it will be, one body in Me, and you will love many and you will know them deeply in your heart and your heart is full My shepherds, because I have taught you My ways of love and given you each other. You are My holy family and I love you. I have called you and so you say “why me?”, and I say to you “why this Saint, or that Saint or why the Blessed Mother, why were you called?”. You were called because I love you and I have given to you a great grace to be My shepherd in the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

Excerpt from February 28, 1999

Messenger: I was in St. Gertrude's Church and I was in the front of the church. I was looking at the crucifix, and I heard the Father speak: "My gift to you is My Son. This is My beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased."

Please read the portion of the December 22, 1998 daily message that talks of this transfiguration when Christ appeared transfigured on January 9, 1996.
