January 3rd Holy Spirit Novena
Scripture selection is Day 2 Period I.
The Novena Rosary Mysteries  
for January 3rd are Joyful.

     

     

 

 

    

This explanation of Blue Book 6 came out of the March 17th, 1995 Blue Book Meeting.

 

The Sixth Book

He Calls Us to Action

Messenger:  This book is a call to action. He gives us His love and He sends us into the world to spread this love to others. We cannot hold back. We need to pray to the Holy Spirit to enlighten us and to give us His courage to carry out the plan of the Father. Holy Spirit transform us from fear to fearlessness. He is one in us. Minute-by-minute, second-by-second, He provides for our needs. Hear His soft voice all through the day say, I love you, I love you, I love you.

    He is the bridegroom of our soul. Enter into such union with Him through His pierced side and dwell deeply in His Most Sacred Heart. As St. Paul said (Gal. 2: 20): "yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me."

    We are one body in Christ. How can I be one in Him and not love you when you are one with Him?

    He talks about the Church, the Priests, and how we are His apostles to spread His love into this world - how we must pray for our priests and one another, pray for the souls in purgatory, pray for the whole Church in union with the Masses being offered throughout the world.

Let the Spirit Move in You

    The Church is the Body of Christ. One of the truths that is emphasized by this concept is the idea of community. The communion that binds the members of the Church together is, in turn, connected with that wider idea of community that embraces the whole of mankind....

    The Christian community is a terrestrial reflection of the ultimate and absolute community—namely, the Trinity. In a special way, we are privileged to give witness to Trinitarian life, a life of divine intimacy and loving. From all eternity, the persons of the Trinity are united in the most intimate bonds of knowledge and love; these have also brought about creation and redemption.

     Grace, or the Christ-life, is a created participation in Trinitarian life. This Christ-life, consequently, calls us to a special existence of knowing and loving. Christian faith and love, which are created participations in the Trinity's knowing and loving, allow us to know and love God in a special manner. Faith and love also give us a new capacity to relate to both our fellow Christians and to all others as well.  Excerpt from Response to God's Love by Fr. Edward J. Carter

Messenger:  We are brothers, if one member suffers the whole body suffers.

Jesus:  Open yourselves up and see the big picture. You have such limited vision. See through the eyes of God. You do not see your brother starving to death, you do not see your brother suffering, see with the eyes of God. Pray for vision. Make your life a constant prayer, praising always in the Spirit.

The Holy Spirit

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in My likeness. He performs this marvel within Mary's Immaculate Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My own Heart. In both Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master. All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!"

Reflection: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with our Mother, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us.   Excerpt from Tell My People

Jesus:  Praise God, sing songs, now is the time for rejoicing, My time is near at hand. First, there will be a time of purification and men's hearts will then turn to God. Oh My beloved ones, I am so close to you. You see so little, you are so blind and it is right before your eyes. Look at My Church, you are members of one body, I am the head of My Church. Harken to Me to stay fixed in Me. Live in the Spirit. Let the Holy Spirit fill you and lead you to greater life in Me.

Then we shall no longer be children, or tossed one way and another, and carried hither and thither by every new gust of teaching, at the mercy of all the tricks people play and their unscrupulousness in deliberate deception. If we live by the truth and in love, we shall grow completely into Christ, who is the head by whom the whole Body is fitted and joined together, every joint adding its own strength, for each individual part to work according to its function. So the body grows until it has built itself up in love.  Ephesians 4: 14-16

For as with the human body which is a unity although it has many parts—all the parts of the body, though many, still making up one single body—so it is with Christ. We were baptised into one body in a single Spirit, Jews as well as Greeks, slaves as well as free men, and we were all given the same Spirit to drink.  1 Corinthians 12: 12-13

He is the image of the unseen God, the first–born of all creation, for in him were created all things in heaven and on earth: everything visible and everything invisible, thrones, ruling forces, sovereignties, powers—all things were created through him and for him. He exists before all things and in him all things hold together, and he is the Head of the Body, that is, the Church. He is the Beginning, the first–born from the dead, so that he should be supreme in every way; because God wanted all fullness to be found in him and through him to reconcile all things to him, everything in heaven and everything on earth, by making peace through his death on the cross.  Colossians 1: 15-20

Jesus:  Allow the Spirit to move in you, as you operate, you operate as God has planned by following God's will. Make yourself selfless and totally surrender yourself to the will of God. Let the Spirit of God move in you. Oh My beloved ones, see with the vision of God. I give to you such graces and you in your stubbornness do your own will. I am the way, I am the truth, I am the life. I impart to you a sharing in My Divine Life through baptism. I give you a special sharing of My Divine Love. Be open in your heart, be pure, lift your minds and hearts up to God. You are My soldiers to spread the love of God, you cannot underestimate what one soul fixed on Me can do for this world. My force is Mighty, the Spirit wants to fill you, the Father is forever with you. Oh children, oh children, how ornery is your ways, how simple My ways. My way is the way of love. You are united in Me.

    The Church is the Body of Christ. One of the truths that is emphasized by this concept is the idea of community. The communion that binds the members of the Church together is, in turn, connected with that wider idea of community that embraces the whole of mankind....  Excerpt from Response to God's Love by Fr. Edward J. Carter

Jesus:  Your brothers are your brothers, love and cherish them, it is in loving them that you love Me. See Me in their eyes. See the Creation of the Father. See Me beaten, bloodied and bruised for love of them. See My children. You walk this barren desert with such blindness. My land is brimming with milk and honey. My life, I impart to you this day, open your hearts and let My love live in you. Oh beloved ones, pray for more and more grace, pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus. I am your God, I come to you this day and give to you My greatest love, My Heart burning and on fire, come and rest in My Heart, it is open and waiting, longing for you. I am Jesus, your God, I love you so much.

     

  

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.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994

    

 

January 5, 1995 - 6:45 a.m.

See the Big Picture

Jesus speaks: My dear child,
I want you to see the big picture. My messages are not for two or three. My messages are for all souls. Souls are at stake. You contain the mighty medicine to draw men's hearts back to My burning love. I am Jesus. Put everything aside and focus only on Me talking to you.

The world is hurting. Men's hearts are so cold. They do not see beyond themselves. They do not see that God is with them this day. Little one, you were created to know, love and serve God. God must be first in your life. Many in your country have denied the existence of God. The batting of an eye, the dropping of a pin, and your life is over.

See with the eyes of God. See with the vision of God. God is eternal, God sees time as one. You do not see because you do not pray for grace.

You see with limited vision. You think with a human mind. You use a human mind to judge the things of God. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I came to this world to lead all men to heaven. I come to you this day. Do you think God comes to talk to a few? I came to lead all souls to everlasting happiness.

Pray for vision. I see not a little town, I see all men, yet, I love each soul so uniquely. You do not understand the mind of God. You do not see as I see. I ask you to give My love to all. You see a few and love a few. You are one body, all men are your brothers. I came to give My Life to all men.

You must pray for vision and grace to do the will of the Father. My plan is unfolding and it depends on you. One person fixed on the love of God can radiate such might and power.

You cannot light the city without My power. My power I pour out to you in the Eucharist. My power I pour out to you when you sit in front of My tabernacle. You cannot do it without My might, My power. I am the Power, I am your All.. You see yourself as controlling so many things and being so strong. Your power comes from Me. To do the work I am calling you to, you must have the might of God. You see yourself with a little area and a little job. I am calling you to love all. I am calling you to radiate love. I am calling you to light up the world with My love. I am calling you to make a difference in the lives of so many souls. Your love given through Me will change so many hearts.

Pray to the Spirit to transform your hearts to be more and more like Mine. Go to Mary and unite with Our Hearts. The more you unite to Our Hearts, the more the Spirit pours out His grace to transform your hearts. You do not ask for that life I want to give you. My Life, My grace, My vision, I pour out to you in the Eucharist. Oh, children, you are so blind. I speak to you, your Mother comes and appears and you see only in front of your face.

I come to you this day to deliver this message. Open your hearts to My love. Come to Me at Mass and in Communion with this open heart to receive divine love and divine life. Sit in front of Me in the tabernacle. I beg you. Times are coming when the things you hold onto so tightly will wither in front of your faces.

You are one body in Christ. See the big picture. See the world. See heaven. See all souls living and dead. See the Church as one. See, My children. You in your ways hold onto such little things. You see only in front of your faces.

I call, I knock, My Mother appears and calls each of you here this day. You are soldiers in My army to lead souls to My love. I need strong soldiers. I am fortifying you with My Body and Blood. I give to you this day in the Eucharist. You will radiate with the love of God when you turn your hearts to the Eucharist. I am present no less than the day I hung on the cross. You look for little signs and Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is here. I am here in My Divinity and Humanity in the Eucharist as present as the day I died on the cross, as the day I walked on Calvary, as the day I was born in Bethlehem. I wait in the tabernacle to fortify you with your supplies to spread My love. You do not see because you do not come for your supplies.

Please take Me seriously. Time is short. You need to turn to My Eucharistic Heart. Come to this Center and pray. Come to My tabernacle. Attend Mass and Communion.

Be with Me after Communion. How eagerly I wait to be with you. Pray the rosary with the meditations I have given you. Be there in the lives of Jesus and Mary as you pray the rosary. Pray to the Spirit. All day pray to the Spirit to fill you with the fire of His love. Pray all day for Him to transform you more and more into My image. Pray all day to be soldiers in My army spreading My love to this world. I call you this day. Will you answer Me?

Feast of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

In Baptism we Receive a Sharing in His Divine Life

 

Rita and Marty stated that Mary appeared brightly during the entire rosary. ... She was brilliant!! Rita, Marty, Rita's children and others were present.

Glorious Mystery  

The Resurrection

        1.  Messenger:  Jesus died on the cross and His lifeless Body was placed in the tomb for three days. He rose from the dead. Death has no power over Jesus.  

        2.  Think of Jesus, with His glorified Body all clothed in white, in such glory coming from the tomb on Easter Morning.  

        3.  Jesus' disciples did not understand what Jesus said, about how He would be raised up on the third day.  

        4.  Think of Mary as she wept bitterly outside of the tomb, and now Jesus rose from the dead.  

        5.  Jesus allows us to endure sufferings. Sufferings, He allows us to endure can help bring us to greater life in Him if we stay united to Jesus in the suffering.  

        6.  Jesus died that He could bring us new life.  

        7.  We receive Jesus in the Eucharist. Jesus did not want to leave His beloved ones at the Last Supper. Jesus remains with us this day in the Eucharist in His Divinity and humanity.  

        8.  Sing:  I Am the Bread of Life  

        9.  Messenger: Jesus gave to the Apostles the power to baptize and to forgive sins. 

        10.  Our human nature is elevated to such heights through baptism. It is in Baptism we receive a sharing in His Divine life.

     Romans 6: 3-4

You cannot have forgotten that all of us, when we were baptised into Christ Jesus, were baptised into his death. So by our baptism into his death we were buried with him, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the Father’s glorious power, we too should begin living a new life.

        Song between decades: Come Holy Spirit

 

The Ascension

          1.  Our Christ-life permeates our persons completely. Nothing which is good is destroyed. All is elevated to a new level of existence, for through grace we enter a new life. St. Paul affirms: "And for anyone who is in Christ, there is a new creation; the old creation has gone, and now the new one is here." (2 Co 5:17)   Excerpt from Response in Christ By Fr. Edward J. Carter

          2.  Why are we able to live on a new level of existence through grace? The answer lies in the fact that we receive a created sharing in the divine nature. Nature, we know, is a principle or capacity of operation according to a certain level of existence. An angel can perform acts of an angel because he has an angelic nature. A man can know intellectually because he has a rational nature. Likewise, through our Christ-life of grace we can perform God-like acts because we have received a new nature. Scripture speaks to us about our participation in the nature of God. In one of the most noted passages of the New Testament on the life of grace, we read: "By His divine power, he has given us all the things we need for life and for true devotion, bringing us to know God himself, who has called us by his own glory and goodness. In making these gifts, he has given us the guarantee of something very great and wonderful to come: through them you will be able to share the divine nature and to escape corruption in a world that is sunk in vice." (2 P 1:3-4).  Excerpt from Response in Christ by Fr. Edward J. Carter

         3.  Then he took them out as far as the outskirts of Bethany, and raising his hands he blessed them.  Luke 24:50

 4.  Think of seeing Jesus as He ascends up into heaven.

         5.  Jesus:  Oh ye of little faith, you have little faith. Do you not see that I have all the power? Do you not see that I rose on the third day and ascended into heaven. You see with such limited vision. The things that you see are such small things. I ask you to see more with the vision of God, to see the whole picture, to see Me as I ascended into heaven, to see My power and My might, to see that God became Man and died on the cross for love of you. Open your eyes and pray to the Spirit so that you may see more and more the picture that I am giving to you this day. This is My world. You are in My world, Your breath depends on Me.  

        6.  Jesus longs for us to be so close to Him.

        7.  Jesus gives us a special sharing in His life through baptism.

        8.  Jesus is with us this very day. God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within us in a special way when we are in the state of grace.

        9.  We lack faith. We do not see that God has all the power.

        10.  Jesus rose on the third day. Jesus ascended into heaven. Jesus is with us. We see with such limited vision. We must see the big picture. See with the eyes of God.

              God became man and died on the cross for love of us. We must open our eyes and pray to the Holy Spirit to help us see our every breath depends on God.

    

        The Descent of the Holy Spirit  

         1.  "John baptised with water but, not many days from now, you are going to be baptised with the Holy Spirit.’" Acts 1: 5

         2.  The Apostles were so afraid they had locked themselves in the upper room.

         3.  The Holy Spirit appeared as parted tongues of fire above their heads.  The Spirit transformed their fear from fear to fearlessness.  

         4.  R. Holy Spirit, descend upon us gathered here and fill us with courage in our hearts. Let Your Spirit move within us so that our actions may be those the Father intended us to do. Give us the courage to spread Your love to this world in which many have forgotten God. Give us all that we need. Help us to answer your call. We are being called by You to do this work. Impart to us strength, fearlessness, courage to spread the knowledge of the love of Jesus throughout this world.  

        5.  Please dear Holy Spirit move within each one of us. Holy Spirit fill us with the fire of God's love. Outpour Your grace upon us. Mary, filled with the Holy Spirit, proclaimed the greatness of the Lord in the Magnificat. 

Luke 1: 46-55

                The Magnificat

And Mary said:

My soul proclaims
    the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
    in God my Saviour;
because he has looked upon
    the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
    all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty
    has done great things for me.
Holy is his name,
and his faithful love extends age after age
    to those who fear him.
He has used the power of his arm,
he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes
    from their thrones
        and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things,
    sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help
    of Israel his servant,
        mindful of his faithful love
—according to the promise
    he made to our ancestors—
of his mercy to Abraham
    and to his descendants for ever.

        6.  Dear Holy Spirit help us to be filled with song in our hearts all through the day.

        7.  Song:  A Song from Jesus  

        8.  Song: Come Holy Spirit

        9.  Song: Come Holy Ghost  

        10. Dear Holy Spirit please fill us.

   

        The Assumption of Mary into Heaven  

        1.  Messenger:  Mary was taken body and soul into heaven.  

        2.  Mary remained on the earth many years after Jesus’ death.

        3.  Think of what it would be like to see Mary go up into heaven.  

        4.  Mary was taken up into heaven. We worry about these little details of our life. Jesus tells us the very hairs of our head are numbered. He forever guards us and watches us with such loving care.  

        5.  Jesus ponders our heart and He thinks about us far more than we ever realize. He knows our innermost desires more than we know our own desires. He loves us and cares for us and watches us.  

        6.  Heaven is our true home. Think of Mary's joy to go to heaven.  

        7.  Sing:  Immaculate Mary

        8.  God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, want close union with each one of us.  

        9.  Through the Spirit we are transformed more and more into the image and likeness of Jesus. The Holy Spirit works in Mary's heart to transform us more into this image and likeness of Jesus. Jesus takes us to the bosom of the Father.  

       10. "But our homeland is in heaven and it is from there that we are expecting a Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transfigure the wretched body of ours into the mould of his glorious body, through the working of the power which he has, even to bring all things under his mastery." Philippians 3:20-21
 

 

        The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth  

         1.  Mary: I am your Mother, Mary and I come to you this day with great love that I give to you. I take you ever closer to my Son, Jesus. I place you in His Most Sacred Heart. Jesus is waiting for you, Jesus is longing for you. Jesus wants to be ever closer in union with you. This time is so short. Jesus wants you with Him for all eternity. You will be united in such oneness to God: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in heaven. Turn your hearts to God, open your hearts wide. Let Jesus come into your heart and be so close to you. Jesus forever guards you, watches you, protects you and leads you more and more to the Father. The Trinity loves you so much. I am Mary, your Mother and I thank you for responding to this call.

         2.  Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.  Revelation 12: 1

         3.  Messenger:  Mary is Queen of Heaven. Mary is one with God: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

         4.  Song:  Eye has not Seen  

         5.  Messenger: We cannot fathom what is in store for us if we love and serve God. Jesus loved us so much that He gave His life for us. He is forever with us, as our heart beats. He is with us and so close. He loves us even when we are not thinking of Him.  

         6.  Song:  May the angels take you into paradise, may the martyrs greet you on your way. May you see the face of the Lord, your God. Alleluia, Alleluia.  

         7.  Messenger: We do not see the big picture, the big picture that there is truly a heaven. We see such little details and focus on those little details as if they are so important. Jesus is with us every moment. We focus on the little details and miss the big picture. We live to be forever united with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; and with the Blessed Mother and angels and saints forever and ever in heaven.  

         8.  We are human, we see human things. Jesus is Divine. Through Baptism, we receive this sharing in His Divine life. He gives us His Divine Love. He gives Himself to us in  the Eucharist. We receive His Divine love. We reach for such little things which seem of such great importance. God has all the power and all the might. He gives Himself to us. He wants us to come and receive His love outpoured in the Eucharist.

         9.  We must have faith. We must trust God and love Him. He loves us so much.    

         10.  Jesus outpours His life to us. It is through this grace we know and love Him more. We must pray to Him for grace. God gives me the grace to know more and more His great love. Through His grace we will understand deeper insights into the mystery of the Trinity.

 

R. We see with such limited vision when this is His world and He is waiting to give us deeper insights into the mysteries through His grace. He wants to give His love to us. He says to look at the big picture. Do not focus on the little details. Know that He forever loves us, every second, that He cares about us so much. We must constantly have before our eyes this big picture of the world, not to see a little area but to see all our brothers. If one member is hurting the whole body hurts. Christ is the head of His body, the Church. The Church is the body of Christ. We are one body in Him.

    The vision of God is so immense that we need His grace to see this vision. You must pray constantly for the grace to see and understand more and more the vision of God.

December 27, 1994

Feast of St. John the Evangelist

His Greatest Anguish was His Sufferings to His Most Sacred Heart

  

Rita saw Jesus appear as the Divine Mercy Jesus in tremendous light. Marty saw the Sacred Heart picture in brilliant light.

This rosary was prayed just prior to the Shepherds of Christ Meeting. Marty led the rosary, many people in attendance.

 

 

Sorrowful Mysteries

Agony in the Garden

1.  The agonies of the heart are the greatest of agonies. How Jesus suffered in the garden.

2.  The sufferings to Jesus' Most Sacred Heart were so great that we can never comprehend them; Jesus loves us so much.

3.  Jesus saw before Him all the souls that would be condemned to eternal damnation despite all His suffering.

4.  Put yourself in the garden and be there with Jesus. Hear the sounds of the night and realize that He is God. He saw before Him everything that He would experience in His whole Passion. He suffered willingly for us. He loves us so much.

5.  Jesus saw before Him all the souls that He loved so dearly and would neglect Him and treat Him with such indifference for their whole lives.

6.  Jesus saw all the souls that would receive Him in the Sacrament of His greatest love, the Eucharist, and would not even talk to Him.

7.  Jesus saw all the sins of all men, before this time and after this time.

8.  Jesus suffered so for the anguish that He felt to His Heart for all the souls that would not have time for Him and would not come to be with Him, and for the endless hours that He would spend in the Tabernacle in which no one was there.

9.  Jesus' anguish was so great that His sweat became as great drops of blood on the ground.

10.  As Jesus suffered so for our sins, He was comforted by the acts of love that we give to Him this day.   

Song between decades:  A Song From Jesus

 

Scourging at the Pillar

1.  Jesus suffered so because He loved Judas so much and Judas betrayed Him with a kiss.

2.  Jesus said, ‘Judas, are you betraying the Son of man with a kiss?’  Luke 22: 48

3.  His followers, seeing what was about to happen, said, ‘Lord, shall we use our swords?’ And one of them struck the high priest’s servant and cut off his right ear.   Luke 22: 49-50

4.  Then Jesus said to the chief priests and captains of the Temple guard and elders who had come for him, ‘Am I a bandit, that you had to set out with swords and clubs? When I was among you in the Temple day after day you never made a move to lay hands on me. But this is your hour; this is the reign of darkness.’  Luke 22: 52-53

5.  They tied Him to a pillar.

6.  Be there at the pillar and hear the blows that they gave to Jesus, and Jesus did not cry out; He barely made noise as they beat Him to their own exhaustion.

7.  Jesus had wounds on His body from His head to His feet.

8.  Jesus loved those so much who beat Him.

9.  How could I not love my brother when Jesus suffered these beatings for love of my brother?

10.  Jesus would suffer for each one of us this day again because He loves us so much.

       

Crowning of Thorns

1.  They pounded into Jesus' most Precious Head, a piercing crown of thorns.

2.  They clothed Him in a dirty purple robe and gave Him a scepter to hold.

3.  They hit Him.

4.  They persecuted Him; they spit on Him; they treated Him with such cruelty.

5.  The blood ran down Jesus' face into His eyes and blurred His vision.

6.  Dear Jesus, please help us to see You more clearly, not with the blurred vision that we see You sometimes.

7.  Open our eyes to see that You are truly in our midst this day in the Eucharist.

8.  Open our eyes so that we can see that it is through Your blood that You paid the price for our sins.

9.  Let us see that You live in us in a very special way when we are baptized and in the state of grace.

10.  Sing:  Crown Him With Many Crowns

   

Carrying of the Cross

1.  They gave to Jesus a heavy wooden cross that He carried on His shoulder, and His shoulder felt as if it would crack through to the ground.

2.  Mary stood by and she saw her beloved Son as Jesus fell under the cross. Mary kept all these things in her Most precious heart. Mary felt the pain and the anguish that her Son, Jesus, suffered, helplessly she stood by. Mary was Jesus' Mother, but Mary could not raise a hand to help Him.

3.  Do we even know a little bit the anguish of Mary's most precious heart?

4.  Mary's eyes peered into the eyes of her beloved Son, and in that peering look is the deepest intimacy between Mary's heart and Jesus' Heart, Mary saw Jesus suffer and Jesus saw Mary suffer. In that look is the knowledge, love,  memories of their lives, the intense knowing of each other in Their Hearts, the intense love that They had for one another.

5.  How well the Heart of Mary knows the Heart of Jesus. Mary rocked Jesus when He was a baby; she held Him; she carried Him; she was with Him all through His public life. Now on Calvary she walked every step with Him, unable to do anything.

6.  Mary's heart was pierced with an invisible sword as time and time again she walked beside Jesus. Mary heard the cross as it bumped along, her heart in such anguish.

7.  Only by the grace of God could Mary withstand what she went through during the Passion. Mary walks by our side this day. It is by the grace of God that we will be able to handle the difficulties for she is forever by our side, ever watching us, and ever there to be our most loving mother.

8.  Veronica wiped Jesus' face and on that cloth was the blood stained face of our Beloved Savior.

9.  This cloth stands today with the stain as a remembrance of Jesus' greatest love, that He gave Himself on Calvary, and He gives Himself to us this day in the Eucharist.

10.  Do we know how much Jesus and Mary, so closely united in their Hearts, love each one of us. They suffered so for each one of us and they call out for us to love God and to love one another. They showed us the way.

   

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1.  As Mary held the little baby hands and baby feet of the child Jesus, she now stood by and watched them as they pounded into His most precious hands the nails that went through to the cross.

2.  These wounds to Jesus' most precious hands and feet were so deep that they went all the way through His hands and feet.

Sing:  Little Baby Hands and Feet

3.  Jesus' greatest agony was to His most precious Heart. How deep were the wounds that He suffered to His Heart for all the souls that neglect Him this day, and for all the souls that use His name in vain and do not even think of Him. He loves each soul with the most burning love and longs and thirst for them to come and give Him their love.

4.  Jesus hung on the cross for three agonizing hours while His Beloved Mother stood beneath the cross supported by her beloved John. Mary scarcely could stand, but she stood and withstood the tortures that Jesus went through. She did not leave but she stayed there as she stands with us in all of our trials that we undergo this day. She is forever by our side.

5.  Mary, help us to see more through your eyes and through your heart the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, so that we may more closely unite to this overabundant source of love... divine love ... Help us to be an instrument to promote love and oneness.

Sing:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

6.  See Jesus hang on the cross in total surrender, humped over in a darkened sky. Jesus shed the last drop of His blood. He gave His all for each of us, and He calls us to love. He showed us how to love and He calls us to love Him and to love one another.

7.  With greatest love for each one of us, Jesus remains with us this very day, the same as the day He died on the cross, waiting for us to come and receive Him in the Eucharist and wait with Him in the Tabernacle.

8.  See Mary under the cross hold the lifeless body of her beloved Son. . . the love that both Mary and Jesus have poured out for each one of us.

9.  See Mary weep outside of His tomb as they lock Jesus in the tomb.

10.  Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then to the disciple he said, ‘This is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.   John 19: 25-27
