Cesar Chavez, the Prophet of the Poor

I devoted considerable time in meditation and prayer asking Jesus Christ, Cesar Chavez, Gandhi, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to come into my heart and soul. I asked that they provide me with what they wish for me to share with the world about Cesar Chavez, this famous farm worker, labor leader, and one of the most famous civil rights spiritual activists in our times.

The presence of Cesar Chavez continues to be with us. Hundreds of our people unite to celebrate his life, because he is very much alive. In fact, he is more alive today than he was when he took that journey with Jesus Christ, Gandhi, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Cesar Chavez died on April 23, 1993, and he has been in a very profound resurrection ever since then, only miles away from his birth place in San Luis, Arizona. It is said that over 50,000 people attended his funeral mass in the small town of Delano, California. Many, such as Cardinal Roger M. Mahoney, have declared him as the "21st Century Prophet of the Poor.”

History also has it recorded that on August 8, 1994, his widow, Helen Chavez, accepted and received the Medal of Freedom conferred posthumously by President Bill Clinton.

On December 6, 2006, Cesar Chavez was inducted into the California Hall of Fame. We commemorate his life of dedication, spirituality, and his love for the freedom of humanity.

Chavez marched and led strikes against rich farm workers that refused to pay fair wages. He advocated human rights in providing a voice against discrimination and oppression.

He had the love and the power of Jesus Christ in his heart. He shared this one time as we spoke, because he knew in his heart that I also sought freedom, justice, and love for all humanity. We could see in each other’s eyes the respect and the love that we had in each other's hearts, because Jesus Christ was with us.

I know that Cesar Chavez is with me tonight and every night, giving me strength, faith, courage, dignity, pride and most importantly, sharing the love of Jesus Christ, whose resurrection is celebrated today.  

Cesar knows that I have survived and will continue to survive, because he states that both he and our most beloved brother, Jesus Christ, are with me and all of our brothers and sisters who suffer in this hard, oppressive world. They will struggle with us until we are all free!

Why Has Thou Forsaken Me

All night and even this morning these words continue to sound and resound in my mind and heart and soul. My most beloved brother, Jesus Christ, was giving His life for the sake of all humanity on this earth, to enable humanity to seek salvation through the blessings of Almighty God. It was for the sake of freedom, justice, forgiveness, family, spirituality, and love. He knew that He had been chosen from the very beginning as He moved through the masses of a humanity that spoke of this great man by the name of Jesus Christ, who had been sent to earth by God.

I am amazed of how much He must have suffered nailed alive to the cross by His hands and feet, not having anyone come forward except His loving mother, Mary.  On her knees, she tried to touch His feet so that He would know that she had never deserted Him and never would.

How He must have felt teaching and sharing His kindness and love, knowing that not one had been present as He suffered on the cross. It is no wonder that He finally looked up to heaven and spoke to God asking, "Why has Thou  forsaken me?"

Soon after, the heavens opened. My beloved brother, Jesus Christ, came into the midst and power of God's kingdom of heaven. To this very day and time all the teachings and everything that Jesus Christ shared made it possible for us to be who we are today.

No, God never truly forsook His Son, Jesus Christ, who in making the statement indicated that He was human -- more human than we will ever be.


Good Friday

I know that I will be in deep spiritual prayer and meditation like never ever before. I can only imagine what was going through the mind, heart, and soul of my most beloved brother, Jesus Christ, as He waited to be tried, and sentenced. Today represents the most historical crucifixion of a human being demonstrated to the world. Christ was stripped naked, beaten, tortured without a piece of bread for His hunger or a drop of water for His thirst.  Without strength left in His beaten body, He was forced to carry the cross. He fell, was beaten, and whipped on His body.

When He finally arrived the top of the hill, we was nailed alive to the cross by His hands. They bound both feet and nailed them to the cross in the same way.

I can feel His presence, and I can feel His strength, courage, pride, dignity and love like never ever before in my entire life.

It was meant to be for my spiritual brother Raul to be with me, as we will celebrate the resurrection of our beloved brother in struggle for freedom, justice, and love.

The Love, Power, and Spirituality of our Mothers

I continue to do extensive reading and research into our spiritual world, reading books that have not been opened in the prison chapel for years. I spend hours and hours not only in prayer, but seeking what other individuals sought during those historical spiritual times, knowing in their hearts and souls that one day someone on this earth would take the time to read what they witnessed and sought in their hearts.

The message that I have found and has come from Jesus Christ is a love that keeps coming out so strong and so powerfully that humanity misses it during these most historical spiritual days. It is the blessing and the love of Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ.

We must take the time and realize that our greatest gift on this earth was she who brought and assisted God in creating us for existence in this life yesterday, today and tomorrow.

It is not only the trial, the sorrow, the sadness and crucifixion of our most beloved brother Jesus Christ. It is about the greatest gift that God and the entire spiritual world continues to share with us and that the love, the power, and the spirituality of our mothers.

“Mary meets Jesus on the road to Calvary. The Blessed Virgin sets out toward Calvary where she knows that her son is to be crucified.   Upon the way she meets Him.  What immense sorrow to see Him in this terrible state!! Her gaze meets His, and the abyss of the suffering of Jesus calls upon the abyss of His mother's compassion.  What is there that she would not do for Him! This meeting was at once a source of sorrow and of joy for Jesus.  Of sorrow, in seeing the deep desolation wherein his suffering state plunged his Mother's soul; of joy, in the thought that his sufferings were to pay the price for all the privileges she had already received and for those yet to be lavished upon her.  Jesus continues his way towards the place of his execution because it is his Father's will.  Mary is one with him in all that he feels.  She knows that all things must be accomplished for our salvation.  She takes her share in the sufferings of Jesus in following him as far as Golgotha where she will become Co-Redemptrix.” (Blessed Columba Marmion).  

The power and the love of our mothers cannot ever be forgotten, for it is the source of all creation and righteousness. The more that we honor and cherish and embrace and love our mothers, the more God will come forward in our lives and bring an enlightenment of freedom, justice, and love like never ever before.

It is time to embrace Mary and let her know that we are with her in her suffering, in her witnessing the nailing of her most beloved son, Jesus Christ, and in witnessing his suffering to the very end nailed to the  cross of suffering, forgiveness , and love.

Sensitive to Pain and Suffering

The entire afternoon was dedicated to Jesus Christ and His mother like never ever before. I cannot help but feel the love and the affection and the broken heart of Christ's mother as she was on her knees witnessing what they had done to her Son. Her feelings must have come into my spiritual meditation. Without evening realizing it, I was pouring out tears like you have no idea. I know that I am extremely sensitive to witnessing pain and suffering, because of my continuous suffering for the last 20 years of our lives. In other words, I know how it feels to suffer pain and sorrow and loneliness and to know that mom is suffering because of her illness. I can feel what others cannot or refuse to feel because they do not wish to feel bad about anything in the world except about themselves. That is what your father called selfishness.  For some reason or another like never ever before, my dreams and my deep meditations pertain to the suffering of Mary and Joseph and those who were so close to Jesus Christ. As they are reaching out to me, I am praying for them to come into my heart and soul, because  they suffered greatly knowing that God's Son given to them and the world was in reality crucified alive all for us who continue to live in a world of hatred, jealously, disrespect, and little or no compassion for humanity on this earth.


Only Your Father Would Use Such Profound Words

I would give anything to have the power of words that your father possesses. As he communicates with me I stare right into his eyes because I cannot wait for his choice of words in his spiritual communications about mom and the family and you. When he spoke about mom he used the words respect and submission. I would have never thought of using those profound words that describe what we must give to mom as God would have given to us. I know that it is difficult for many to ever even imagine in their minds or hearts that one is in communication with our spirits who are in heaven. For the longest time I personally hesitated to share this with you, but your father insisted that the time had come and that eventually he and others would come into your heart and soul as they have already come into mom's. You cannot imagine how I feel. I cried and cried and I thanked God for giving me the strength, the courage, the endurance, and most important of all the spirituality and love from His heart and soul to mine.


I Know in my Heart and Soul That I Have Been Blessed

Even though my family and I have suffered for the last 20 years of my life like no others on this earth, I know in my heart and soul that I have been blessed. It is very difficult to describe in the English or Spanish language, but in my heart and soul I can feel strength, courage, pride, dignity. Most of all, I feel such power of spirituality that sometimes i cannot contain myself. I begin crying like a child, thanking God for what he has given me, and for choosing me as His symbol of spiritual consciousness like no other at the present time on this earth.


There is no question in my heart and soul that the time has come for me to get closer to mom so that I can begin to embrace her. She knows that I have suffered like no other for the last 20 years of our lives and she has witnessed her own daughter suffer, just as I have suffered because our hearts and souls have been apart.


I know deep in my heart that you will begin to feel that spiritual consciousness that I have spoken of and your father presented not too long ago. If you go back to our previous messages, one night he said that I was the "symbol of spiritual consciousness.”  Now all of that is getting heavier and heavier like you have no idea. I feel like a kid that wishes to play all day and all night and everyone around here will ask me what I am taking because go 100 miles per hour all day and all night. I immediately answer that I have accepted the wishes and the blessings of God, Jesus Christ, and La Virgen de Guadalupe.


Know that we will be free soon and close to each other soon. Have faith and be strong for it is in your blood.





God Chose Me After Years of Pain, Agony, and Suffering

For the longest time I could not stop crying because I was searching for every way possible to give my thanks and gratitude to God, Jesus Christ, La Virgen de Guadalupe, and all our spirits in heaven for giving me such strength, power and courage like you have no idea. I could not stop crying because I know in my heart and soul that God is with us, and that He is going to free us. He is going to take care of mom because He knows that every day, every afternoon, regardless of the pain, I will get on my knees and ask God to please take good care of her and alleviate all of the pain that she suffers at the present time. I thank God for the love of the family and I thank our father, Salvador, and our mother, Hilda, for their presence, providing all the love and the spiritual direction that we must seek and fulfill. You cannot imagine how I feel. I feel like a young kid and I am going 100 miles per hour. It is amazing what God can do. I cried, because I know that He has chosen me after all these years of pain, agony, and suffering. I cry every time I think of my beloved brother, Jesus Christ on that cross. He knows that I love Him very much and that I will never ever abandon Him.

We Need Forgiveness for Neglecting the Life of Jesus Christ

 It was the most amazing sight of all. Within the hour of prayer on my knees I had tears pouring down my face. I could not stop crying because of the strength and courage that God was giving me. All of sudden it turned from a shining bright day into dark clouds. The entire sky turned dark. Strong winds came and it seemed that rain was about to pour. Everyone went in to the units but something kept telling me that it was all meant to be, as if it was a message from God to say that He was listening and that He understands and loves us for believing in His son, Jesus Christ.
I believed in God when we were in chains and shackles, never losing faith and always keeping in mind how His son had been tortured, beaten, whipped, and at the very end nailed alive to the cross on his hands and feet. He hanged on the cross by his flesh with all the strength, courage and love he had left. He stared into heaven seeking the presence of God, his Father and he said, "Forgive them for they do not know what they do." 
I am convinced more than ever before. What is needed in this world and by those who used to be close is forgiveness. I say this because in this manner they could actually begin a new life. Instead of beating down the old path of selfishness, hate, jealousy, and lack of spirituality, they could truly feel the essence and the power of love.
At the present time all that we hear and read throughout the world pertains to hate, racial issues, discrimination, war, and self destruction of the each other like never ever before. The time has come to open our hearts and souls and be honest with each other and believe in ourselves.
It is time to accept the truth that we are in the midst of a spiritual history like never before in our lives. We who represent the masses regardless of race, color, or creed, must come to realize that our beloved brother, Jesus Christ, came into this world not to take, hate, and destroy, but to love and give the most profound power on this earth, which is the family.
We will witness history recreated all over again and we must take the time and in silence look up to heaven rather than looking down. The time has come to look up and feel pride, courage, faith, and the most powerful of all -- love.  
We need to ask God to forgive us for neglecting the gift of His son's life so that as humans we can be forgiven for our sins and begin to live the qualities for which Jesus Christ gave His life -- spirituality, family, faith, discipline, pride, forgiveness, and most powerful of all love.
I have lived in a world of hate and death for the last 20 years of my life and the only reason that I am the man that I am today is because I have never ever given up on the love of my beloved brother, Jesus Christ, who came to me when I suffered in chains and shackles for days, weeks and months, at times naked like an animal thinking that I might be at the end of my life. I never ever stopped praying, and He came into the cold dark dungeon and told me to rise from my knees and let the oppressor know the man that I am and will forever be. I shouted with all the strength and love in my heart,  freedom, freedom, freedom!"
I ask all in the so-called free world to thank Jesus Christ for coming into this mode of darkness and giving me life now like never ever before. I pray for all, because I love and because I have forgiveness in my heart and soul.
