Words of Jesus to Members of Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

                        Excerpt from Blue Book 7 - June 14, 1995 Rosary - Mary Is Crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth

9. Jesus: I give to you the gift of your tongue, the tongue upon which you receive the Almighty God. My dear ones, use your tongue to sing the praise of the Almighty God Who comes and is received on this tongue. If I come to you on your tongue, how can you with your tongue, sin? My dear ones, guard your tongue as the entryway to your soul. As a man is in his heart, so shall he be to this world. I give you a new commandment: love God with your whole heart, your whole soul and your whole being, and love your neighbor as yourself. Do not speak harshly against your brother. Do not talk about your brothers for they were created by My Father and redeemed by My Blood. They are precious to Me. Who are you that you can judge these little ones? Judging is not up to you. Loving is what you are commanded to do.

10. Jesus: I am the Sacred Heart, on fire for love of men. I came to this earth, suffered, died and rose on the third day to bring you life. Guard your tongue. May your hearts be ever pure. May your hearts be filled with love. May you silence Satan in your heads for he aims to trip you and rob you of your joy. Satan wants to take the life from within you. Let go, surrender and trust for you are guarded far more than the finest pearls. You are watched and protected by the Almighty God Who lives in this world this day.

Morning Offering (for Shepherds of Christ Members)

My dear Father, I offer You this day all my prayers, works, joys and sufferings, my every breath, my every heartbeat, my every thought, all my actions, in union with Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in the Holy Spirit. I pray the Holy Spirit is with me every second today, enlightening me to do the will of the Father and filling me with the fire of God's love.

I ask Jesus and Mary to be one in me in all that I do and I unite with all the angels and saints and souls in purgatory to pray continually to the Father for these intercessions, in this prayer, for this day.

For myself, I pray for grace-abundant grace, to know and love God more and more and to follow the will of the Father. I pray to the Holy Spirit to transform me in the heart of Mary to be more and more like Jesus. I pray that I can forever dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I pray for conversion of all those I hold dear who need conversion. I pray for each member of my family that they will be filled with Your abundant grace to grow in their knowledge and love of God.

I pray for all my friends that they will receive abundant grace to carry out the great plan of the Father, that they will grow forever closer to Jesus' Heart through Mary's heart, that we will all be led by the Holy Spirit to do His work, that we will, together, carry out the plan of the Father as He intends us to, to spread the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary's heart to this world.

Jesus, I pray for myself so the Holy Spirit descends upon me and opens my heart to Your love so I will grow more and more deeply in union with You. I pray that I do not worry what other people think but try always to please the Father and do His will. I pray that I may help lead many to Your burning love.

I pray for the following people in particular that they will be filled with the Spirit and grow deeply in their union with You, that they will receive abundant graces to know, love and serve You more. (Include special friends by name...)

I pray for priests the world over, for the success of the Priestly Newsletter, the Chapters and for the finances needed for the Newsletter. I pray for the circulation of the Blue Book messages, rosary meditations and tapes. I pray for all those involved in the publication of these messages.

I pray that You will shower Your abundant graces onto the priests reading the Newsletter the people reading and hearing the Blue Book messages and Rosary Meditations and all of Fr. Carter's publications.

We pray for the intentions we hold deep within our hearts, for our families and friends, for those requesting our prayers. We pray for children the world over and for the souls in purgatory. We ask God to shower His abundant grace on us and the members of our Shepherds of Christ chapter so that we may grow more and more in our knowledge and love of God.

We consecrate ourselves to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. We pray for Father Carter, for Father Smith, for Rita Ring, and for John Weickert, for all leaders and helpers in the Shepherds of Christ Movement, for Shepherds of Christ Ministries, and Our Lady of Light Ministry. We pray for all those who are working in these ministries.

We bind ourselves and our children and our friends to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We place the precious blood of Jesus on ourselves, and all we touch, so that we will be protected from the evil one. We pray to St. Michael to cast the devil into hell.

We love You, God, we love You, we love You. We beg that we may receive the grace to love You more and more deeply. We adore You, we praise You, our beloved Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Song: Jesus I Love You

 

June 9, 1995

R. Every action I perform I want to be a
sign of my great love for Him. I am
telling the world I know Jesus,
He is alive and I love Him.

Every action is an opportunity to declare my
great love for Him.
I want to be one in Him, I want Him
alive in me. I want to be one in Him.
I dwell in Him. God dwells in me.

In all things, a declaration of the oneness
    I have with Him.

In all things His living in me, showing
    this world, Christ lives in me.

I live to love the Lord, to love Him
    with my whole soul, my whole
    being, my whole self.

I live to carry this love to others. My
    very being declares the works of our
    good God. The God who lives within
    me.

Jesus: I am alive, I am alive, I am alive and
    I live in you. The Almighty God
    lives in you.

R. I will live my whole life declaring the works
    of the Lord. Alleluia.

  

                June 9, 1995

                Jesus: You can read these letters in many different
                    ways.

                I am Jesus, I am telling you how to read My
                    letters of love.

                Come with a heart that is open and ready to
                    love.

                Do not come to question, come to hear My
                    words I am speaking to you.

                In each word, I tell you My burning love
                    for you.

                I have given you in these love letters a
                    prescription for living, living in Me.

                As you read these letters and rosary meditations,
                    I come alive in your being.

                I am alive, I am alive, I am alive and
                    I live in the hearts of men.
                    I remain in the tabernacle, no less
                    present than the day I walked this earth.

                I am alive, I am in you. I want to be
                    one in you and love this hurting world
                    through you.

                I am alive!

 

                June 9, 1995

                R. Each person is unique. I see more and more
                    each person as so precious to Him. I see
                    how beautiful they are, how sweet their
                    precious ways.

                Look for the uniqueness with which the
                    Father created each person.

                The more I see them as unique as reflections
                    of the Father, the more I individually
                    love them.

                I see each moment unfolding in this day as
                    a petal in the flower I give to the
                    Father. Each day of my life a petal for
                    the bouquet He receives at the
                    end of my life. Each moment and second
                    made as beautiful splendid parts of
                    each flower. So many days, so many
                    flowers. Each moment designed with
                    such care and love for Him.

 

June 9, 1995

R. I had two visions yesterday at Falmouth.

    Saw flame as bright brilliant, heard it go puff then it came out of a square box sitting on a hardwood floor that looked like the floor in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel. The Chapel was empty, some things on the floor in the distance. Room was bright. Floor was the center.

 

Notes: R. On June 8, 1995, I had two visions at the Falmouth farm in Kentucky. This excerpt is directly from my notebook as I wrote June 9, 1995, the day after the two visions at Falmouth, Kentucky.

I had received the morning offering for the Shepherds of Christ Movement earlier that morning. From the praying of this prayer by many in the Movement, great grace could be released to our Church and our world.

On the day June 8, 1995, I had the following vision. I saw a river and the riverbanks on both sides were lined with trees. Slowly the water began to rise in the river and the banks were flooded. And then I saw the water was pouring over the treetops (like a waterfall) into the river. The rough sketch enclosed is from my notebook on June 8, 1995.

R. This date June 8, 1995, was the one-year anniversary of the message being blocked from circulation on the Falmouth Farm.

Mary appeared there to lead men deeply into the Heart of Jesus through the messages in God’s Blue Book and the prayers given by Jesus in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual. We were to support the Shepherds of Christ priestly newsletter, and circulate it to priests all over the world so that they would consecrate their hearts to Jesus and Mary.

R. Jesus gave tender love letters in God’s Blue Book to lead the people to Him in adoration before the tabernacle and to Holy Communion. He wants people to stay 20 minutes after Communion to be with Him.

I always wondered what the two visions I received at Falmouth, Kentucky, meant. After the flooding at Falmouth, Kentucky, I thought the vision was linked to this.

One day after Mass at the Cathedral in the afternoon as I was leaving, I noticed the chapel had burned on June 8, 1999, and I remembered the vision I had at Falmouth, Kentucky.

The vision I see now resembles the flood at Falmouth (a terrible thing) but also it reminds me of something I recently read in Revelation 22:1-2.

Revelation 22:1-2

Then the angel showed me the river of life, rising from the throne of God and of the Lamb and flowing crystal-clear. Down the middle of the city street, on either bank of the river were the trees of life, which bear twelve crops of fruit in a year, one in each month, and the leaves of which are the cure for the nations.

R. Approximately twelve times a year we honor God in a special way on the 13th of the month as requested by Jesus at our Center in China, Indiana. In China, Indiana, is our church which is our Center for Eucharistic Adoration. The 13th of every month is usually held in China. A street goes down the middle of our property in China. There are banks with water around the property. One can hear the flowing streams sometimes from the church. Once a month we usually meet there at 12:00 noon for the Shepherds of Christ Prayers and the rosary with messages from Jesus and Mary.

R. I remember the vision June 8, 1995. I saw the waterway and then the water began to rise and rise and then it was pouring from above the trees.

I thought after Falmouth flooded, that this happened because of His displeasure that His Blue Book messages were not made available at the Falmouth farm.

The Blue Books lead people to Him in the Eucharist. He promises great grace to those who go to the Eucharist in love and stay after Communion.  He promises those life-giving waters granted to the soul. I feel He uses life-giving waters many times as a symbol of His flowing grace.

      

   

   

Blue Book 7 continues

Jesus: You know not the day nor the hour, do not worry
    for the things of this world, your very
    hairs have been numbered.

I Love you this day!
    You are My ardent Love!

 

                June 9, 1995 - After Mass 9:00am

                R. I like more than anything to be united with
                Jesus after communion to be one in Him.
                I like to be before Him in the church when
                He is in the tabernacle, but He lives in me.

                Jesus is in me, I am one in Him. I am one
                with you in Him.

                The more we are saturated with His life in
                us, the more we are one in Him, we are
                one with each other.

                The Church is to help us be one
                The Church is to help us be holy —
                The Church is One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic —

                We are all one body in Him. I unite ever
                    so closely to my brothers who are
                    rooted in Him. Our oneness with
                    Him becomes a oneness with
                    each other.

                If I go to Him, I am one with you
                    I cannot be one in Him and not
                    be one with you.

                Holiness is oneness in Him. This is how we
                unite with one another. I cannot be one in Him
                and not be one with you. The two ideas are
                opposing ideas.

                The Eucharist and the Mass is a great
                    way in which we share our oneness
                    with each other.

                Jesus comes to us, Jesus is one in us,
                    we become one with each other in the
                    strongest sense.

                We help the world to be one — when we are
                    one with each other
                    We are to be in union with each other,
                    In being one in the Masses going on
                    all over the world.

                It is in the Mass, we are one, we receive the
                    Eucharist. We are members of the body
                    of Christ in Baptism. We unite with one
                    another in deepest union in the Mass.

                We are one body in Him through baptism.
                    We are in union with all the Masses
                    going on around this world.

                Song: One Bread, one body, one Lord of all

                Let us unite as a body in Him as we unite
                    in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We unite
                    in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass to the Father in union with all
                    the Masses being celebrated in this world,
                    united to Jesus, in the Holy Spirit, with
                    all the angels and saints and the
                    souls in purgatory, through
                    the powerful intercession of
                    Mary our Mother.

 

                June 10, 1995

                Jesus: Your hearts have turned to stone, you have
                    given into the temptations of satan.
                    Oh My beloved world, I come with a Heart
                    of love, satan aims to divide this Center
                    and tear it apart. You are so weak in your
                    ways, for you do not go to the tabernacle.

                I am Jesus your beloved, come to Me and I
                    will give you rest.

                Satan wants you to tear apart
                    what others have built
                    before you.

                I have given My Blue Books as the
                    Mighty Medicine for the Church and
                    the world. They are My gifts to My
                    beloved souls —
                    from Me, through Rita, My messenger.
                    She is the co-founder of the Shepherds
                    of Christ. The vision I have given for the
                    Shepherds of Christ is to Fr. Carter and Rita.
                    They are to give this gift to the world.
                    I have appointed Rita to see to the
                    publication of My letters, I have called her.
                   

 

June 12, 1995 - Nursing Home Message

Jesus: Come unto Me all who are weary and find rest for your souls. I never abandon you. When you are in the state of grace, the Trinity lives within you in a most special way.

R. In each suffering, feel His presence inside of you. We become one in Him, He is one in us. How can I fear when I am one with the Almighty God? In You, Lord, I have found my peace. In You Lord, I have joy. To suffer means to have the opportunity to unite more closely to Him. We go to Him inside ourselves. He is the Almighty God. He can make a difference. God listens to us. He is God and He is listening to us and helping us. He truly listens. He is present. He takes care of our every need. He wants us with Him forever in heaven. He is constantly leading us to our goal, everlasting happiness in heaven.

In You Lord, I find peace. You are an infinite ocean of mercy and love. You are attentive to our every need. Second by second, minute by minute You sustain me.

What we should fear is separation from God. He is present. He lives as one with us. When I take my thoughts away from Him, I feel I am alone. I must go to Him and let go. I must put all my trust in Him.

Jesus: I am your God, the Almighty God. I beckon you to come to My Heart. I am attentive to your cries. I listen. I love you. I protect you. It is in suffering that you are joined more closely to My Heart. It is in suffering you come and rest in My arms. I comfort you. I love you. You, My beloved ones, will be with Me in such bliss in heaven some day. Offer up your sufferings to help obtain graces to make you holy, graces for the world, graces for the priests, help for the souls in purgatory.

R. Offer up your suffering. The God Who loves you listens to your every prayer. How attentive God is to a heartfelt prayer.


 

                June 12, 1995

                R. I love my dear brother in you, my beloved
                Jesus, I see before me the suffering in this
                world and I see as never before their eyes and into
                their souls. For You my beloved live in us.
                You died for us, You shed Your
                Blood for us, oh we are children
                of God the Father.

                    Help me to see with Your eyes, to
                touch with Your hands, flow through
                me, be one in me so it is no longer I who
                live, but You who live in me and ministers
                to this sick world in pain.

                    I see before me the children of Mary.
                The children which I hear Mary speak
                of and I love those I see and suffer with their
                pain.

                    Help me to be so one in You Jesus, so
                You will minister to this world through me.
                I love You, I seek You, I want to be one
                in You, sensitive to all the graces You are
                giving to me and acting as being one in You.

Glorious Mysteries

This rosary was prayed in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, Norwood, Ohio.

The Resurrection of Jesus

  1. Song: This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad. This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad.
  2. Jesus: Let go and surrender. Come to Me. I rose on the third day. So, too, you shall rise from all your difficulties and trials. I am Jesus Christ, Son of God. I am present to you, My beloved ones, and I speak to you through this rosary.
  3. Jesus: Tied to the pillar! Bound to the cross! Are you bound to the difficulties of this life? Let go! Come to Me! Let Me saturate you with My life and you will be raised to such heights as you are lifted high through My life, through My grace. Let go! Surrender and trust! I am the Almighty God. I am within you. Your every thought, your every action you do with Me, My beloved ones, joined in union with Me so that your every thought is a thought you share with the Almighty God. Do not fear, do not fret. I was victorious and rose from the dead and you, too, if you are joined in union with Me, shall rise victorious from your struggles.
  4. Jesus: Satan presses down on each one. Each soul he wants to devour, to torment. I am the Almighty God. It is through the Holy Spirit that you are lifted high. Let Me fill your hearts, My beloved ones. Let the Holy Spirit infiltrate your being and you, too, will be raised to such heights, for the Almighty God is a power that cannot be contained. You will feel a releasing of this vibrancy within your being and you will know life as you have never known life before. I am Jesus and I fill you with My life within your very being.
  5. Jesus: You will experience freedom, for to know Me is to be free of fear. If you realized that the Almighty God lives within you and performs each and every action with you, you are freed from fear.
  6. Jesus: Great insights into My mysteries I give to you. Many live but are dead in spirit. I impart to you the gifts of the Spirit, the vibrancy of His life radiating within you, filling you and carrying you on your way. You will radiate to all those with whom you come in contact for I am the Almighty God and I live within you and I operate through you to those you touch. Let go! Surrender! Let go of anything that holds you bound. Do not be held bound to your thoughts. Focus on Me.
  7. Jesus: Do you feel My life as it fills your soul, My dear ones? Let go! Experience My life within. You share in My divine life. Your human nature is elevated to higher levels as you partake more fully in My life. I am the Almighty God, a force too mighty to be contained, and I speak to you and give you My abundant grace. Open wide and absorb all that I am giving you. Do not fret or fear for I am God!
  8. Jesus: My plan will unfold at this Center despite all those involved and how they resist and are willful in their ways. It is not up to them to operate this plan. This is the plan of the Father. Only in compliance with His Will will His plan work smoothly. It is their own willfulness that is causing this confusion and doubt. I cry out to you to come to Me and be filled with My life for you will be a pillar of strength. As others fumble about you, you will be steadfast in My love and My strength. I am the Almighty God. You I have chosen to hear these words. You are being guarded. Release yourself. Comply with the Will of the Father. The plan will unfold and you are a big part of this plan.
  9. Jesus: Come unto Me, you who are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest. Release yourselves. The anxiety that you feel within is quieted and you rest quietly and securely in the arms of the Almighty God.
  10. Song: New life! New life! You came to bring us new life!

    Song between decades:
    Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts. Enkindle in us the fire of Your love. Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts. Enkindle in us, the fire of Your love.

The Ascension

  1. Jesus: I am the Bread of Life. I give you My life. You are filled, My dear ones, with the life of the Almighty God. Come to Me in the Eucharist for I give you Myself. You will be with all mankind when you unite with Me in the Eucharist. It is through the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that men will be united in this world. Pray always in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and feel this union in your spirit with all in the world. To unite with Me is to unite with one another. You cannot be one in Me and be at odds with your brother. To be one in Me is to be in union with all others.
  2. R. He ascended into heaven! If we envision this sight, the Almighty God going into the sky, we can realize a little of His might.
  3. R. We see with limited vision. We do not see as we should see. Only through the Holy Spirit, when He opens up our eyes and our ears and our hearts and imparts to us His gifts, will we see more clearly.
    Jesus: I give to you, My dear, sweet ones, such insights into the problems in this world. Come to Me and I will fill you with My life and you will understand and comprehend mysteries that others do not see. I am the Almighty God. It is through Me that you will understand more fully this divine plan as it unfolds right before your eyes, for it is My might living in you that will help this plan to unfold as it should. You must come to Me and unite closely. I will operate through you and work in you and minister to all those you touch. I am Jesus, the Almighty God, one, true, magnificent! I am God!
  4. Jesus: Come unto Me, all who are weary, and you will be lifted to heights you would not dream possible. I apply My grace and you feel the freedom, the freedom of flying. I give to you, My beloved ones, My life within you. You are powered to such heights. Let go of those things that keep you bolted to the ground. Let go of all! Surrender and let Me run your life. Have no judgments toward any man. See him as a creation of the Father, uniquely created with specialness and dignity. Love all. Look at each person in that person's uniqueness. Look at each person with eyes to see the beauty with which the Father created him or her. Even when a soul is in apparent wretchedness, the beauty of the Almighty Creator shines through each soul. It is not up to you to judge, but to love. I give to you this commandment: love God and love one another. In all things love and live according to the Father's Will. It is this by which you will be judged: how you complied with His Will, how you loved one another, all acts performed in greatest love. I am the Almighty God and I give to you this commandment: love God and love your neighbor as yourself.
  5. Jesus: In the Eucharist, My dear ones, I give you Myself! Do you see that the Almighty God comes to you, inside of you, with such great love? Why do you worry what others say and think? You must love them. Many are hurting this day. Have you loved? Will you love for Me? Will you unite with Me and become one in Me and let Me love from your being? I call you to love. Love, love, love! Always love! Do not let Satan talk in your heads, My dear ones. Do not listen to words that cause division with any man. Come to Me and I will fill you with My divine love.
  6. Jesus: I will be with you forever and ever and ever. What have you to fear? Your job is to stay focused on Me, to remain in Me and with Me, to live as one in Me. My dear ones, do not be caught up in Satan's crafts, for he is the great deceiver. I give you this commandment: love God and love one another.
  7. Jesus: I want this rosary to be in the third Blue Book.
  8. Jesus: I give you, My dear ones, twenty-four hours in each day. Do you have time, time for the Almighty God Who remains on earth with you, no less present than the day that I walked on this earth? Are you too busy for God when I command you to love Me with your whole heart, your whole soul and your whole being? Do you, in your willfulness, go about your way and say, "I am too busy. I will give to you, God, as I feel I can?" I tell you, you are to love God with your whole heart, your whole soul and your whole being and give to Him first. Then all else will work. Man has made other things his gods. I am the Almighty God! There is one God! It is only in living according to the Father's Will that you will have peace and joy in your hearts. Let go, surrender, and you will be raised to such heights in My love.
  9. Jesus: I fill your souls with My life when you come to Me in the Eucharist and sit in front of the tabernacle. You are raised and elevated to wondrous heights in this life. As the hot air balloon is lifted high above the houses, you, too, will be lifted above the confusion, the deception and the anger that is now pressing down on this earth. It is only in your total surrender that you will receive this freedom.
    Song: Come unto Me, all who are weary, and find rest for your soul. Come unto Me, all who are burdened. I will comfort you.
  10. Jesus: I give to you this mission to carry out My love to this world. I ascended into Heaven. I left My apostles behind. I give to you this mission to go out to the world and, in your being, in your speech, in your lives, to relive My life, death and resurrection. I came, I showed you the way. I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, My dear ones. It is in following My Will that you will have peace, joy and love in your hearts.
    Song: I give you a new commandment, love one another as I have loved you.
    Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts…

The Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles and Mary

  1. Jesus: I give to you the fire of My love, this burning Heart filled with My love for the souls for whom I gave My life. The Father so loved this world that He sent His only begotten Son into this world that men would be saved. I am Jesus and I speak to you in this rosary and all the rosaries that I have given to you at this Center. My Heart is on fire and burning for the love of My souls in this world this day. I beg you to spread this message to a world that is suffering and in pain. I give to you this day My love on fire for all souls.
  2. R. Before Jesus ascended into heaven, He said that John had baptized with water, but that not many days from now He would send the Spirit to baptize them. He ascended into heaven and He left the apostles behind to carry out His work. Peter He made head of the Church. Peter, who denied Him, was made head of His Church! Now the apostles and the Blessed Virgin gathered in the Upper Room, praying and awaiting the promised Holy Spirit.
  3. R. There occurred a roar like an enormous wind and there appeared over their heads parted tongues of fire. The Holy Spirit descended upon them and they were filled with the Holy Spirit. They went out to preach the Gospel.
  4. R. Their hearts were transformed from fear to fearlessness for they knew that the Almighty God was alive, alive in their hearts, alive in the Eucharist! Jesus ascended into heaven but He gave us the great gift of the Holy Eucharist, where He remains in His divinity and His humanity. He sent the Holy Spirit upon the apostles, and they went into the world and preached the Gospel, healing the sick. They were not afraid.
  5. R. They traveled from town to town preaching the Good News. Many were converted.
  6. Song: I come to you with greatest love, I am your loving Savior. I am your God, I died for you. I come to you this day.
    R. He gives to us His life in baptism and He feeds this life this day with His very flesh and blood and He nurtures us with His Word.
  7. John 6: 51-58 ‘I am the living bread which has come down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live for ever; and the bread that I shall give is my flesh, for the life of the world.’ Then the Jews started arguing among themselves, ‘How can this man give us his flesh to eat?’ Jesus replied to them: In all truth I tell you, if you do not eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Anyone who does eat my flesh and drink my blood has eternal life, and I shall raise that person up on the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood lives in me and I live in that person. As the living Father sent me and I draw life from the Father, so whoever eats me will also draw life from me. This is the bread which has come down from heaven; it is not like the bread our ancestors ate: they are dead, but anyone who eats this bread will live for ever.
  8. Song: Come, Holy Ghost, Creator blest, and in our hearts take up Thy rest. Come with Thy grace and heavenly aid, to fill the hearts which Thou hast made, to fill the hearts which Thou hast made.
  9. R. He gives to us His life and we are filled with this vibrancy and force within us. His love is an active force. It is not inactive, dry or sterile. His life, saturating our being, is a force too mighty to be contained. His love will radiate from our whole being as we partake in this Sacrifice.
  10. R. Let us offer ourselves in the Mass united to Jesus Christ, to the Father, in the Holy Spirit, with Mary our Mother at our side, and with all the angels and saints and souls in purgatory.
    Song between decades: Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow. Praise Him, all creatures here below. Praise Him above ye Heavenly Hosts. Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.

The Assumption of Mary Into Heaven

  1. R. Mary is taken, body and soul, into heaven. Mary, our model! These rosaries are the lives of Jesus and Mary. It is in meditating on these rosaries that we will know more of the mysteries of their lives.
  2. From Tell My People -- 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!"

  3. R. Oneness in our being with the Almighty God! Let our goal be to become saints of God. Let us strive for highest holiness but realize our imperfections, not dwell on these but strive ever harder to be more perfect as our Heavenly Father is perfect.
  4. R. O blessed and beautiful Virgin Mary, Heart most tender and pure, I see surrounding you the celestial light adorned with a pink hue. You, my beloved Mother, mother each one of us so that we may be more and more like your most precious Son, Jesus Christ.
  5. R. It is Mary who places us in the innermost sanctuary of the Heart of Jesus.
  6. R. O Virgin Mary, adorned in a pinkish celestial light, surround us with the light of the Almighty God. Dear Jesus, penetrate our souls with Your light so that we may feel this light radiating from our being and raising us to such heights, that we may realize the great gifts that we are given on this earth, that we may realize that these are not gifts primarily focused on this world, that we may realize that the gifts to be treasured most dearly are the gifts pertaining to the Almighty God.
  7. R. As Jesus ascended into heaven to prepare a place for us He left behind the Virgin Mary. She remains with us this day as our spiritual Mother, mothering us and leading us on our journey to our true home in heaven.
  8. R. Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit, transform our hearts and fill us with the fire of God's love. Work in the Heart of Your spouse, the Virgin Mary, that we may be more like Jesus and ever closer to the Father.
  9. R. How perfectly Mary dwells in the Heart of her Son!
  10. R. She spreads her protective mantle over her dear children and they are filled with her motherly love.

    Mother of Christ, Mother of the Church, Mother of divine grace, Mother most pure, Mother most chaste, Mother inviolate, Mother undefiled, Mother most amiable, Mother most admirable, Mother of good counsel, Mother of our Creator, Mother of our Savior.
    Mother us and lead us closer to our eternal life through your Son, Jesus, our beloved Savior.

    Song between decades: Ave, ave, ave, Maria. Ave, ave, ave, Maria.

Mary Is Crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth

  1. R. See our hearts adorned with white eyelet ribbon, tied and secured, placed entirely within the Heart of the Virgin Mary. See her Heart resting and dwelling in the Heart of her Son. Such security to feel our hearts closed with ribbon and resting in her Heart, and hers in His.
  2. R. The gift we give is the gift of our hearts, adorned with this beautiful ribbon and consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. This is the package of our love. We give to you, wholly and completely, our hearts to dwell within your Heart and the Heart of your Son.
  3. R. We consecrate ourselves, our whole beings, to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
  4. Act of consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary

  5. "Lord Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock, I consecrate myself to Your most Sacred Heart. From Your pierced Heart the Church was born, the Church You have called me, as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, to serve in a most special way. You reveal Your Heart as a symbol of Your love in all its aspects, including Your most special love for me, whom You have chosen as Your companion in this most important work. Help me to always love You in return. Help me to give myself entirely to You. Help me always to pour out my life in love of God and neighbor! Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You!

    "Dear Blessed Virgin Mary, I consecrate myself to your maternal and Immaculate Heart, this Heart which is symbol of your life of love. You are the Mother of my Savior. You are also my Mother. You love me with a most special love as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, a movement created by your Son as a powerful instrument for the renewal of the Church and the world. In a return of love, I give myself entirely to your motherly love and protection. You followed Jesus perfectly. You are His first and perfect disciple. Teach me to imitate you in the putting on of Christ. Be my motherly intercessor so that, through your Immaculate Heart, I may be guided to an ever closer union with the pierced Heart of Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock."

  6. Sing: Hail Holy Queen
  7. Song: Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, what God has ready for those who love Him. Spirit of love, come give us the mind of Jesus. Teach us the wisdom of God.
    Jesus: I give you a new commandment: love one another as I have loved you.
  8. R. The heavens are opened and man goes to his final destination, all of the tears and worries of this earth left behind.
    Jesus: My dear ones, open wide your hearts and let Me penetrate deeply. Let Me fill you with My love and you will know that I want to dwell deeply in you.
  9. Jesus: I give you the beautiful trees, the birds of the air. I give you far greater gifts, My dear ones. Many look at this world with dark colored glasses. I give you My life! Open up your eyes and pray for vision to see those gifts I am giving to you this day. Let your hearts be filled with joy, for I live! I live in this world this day! I never abandon you! Father, Son and Holy Spirit live within your heart when you are in the state of grace. What have you to fear when the Almighty God dwells within you. Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia. Their eyes were opened and their tongues were loosed and they proceeded throughout their lives, forever declaring the works of the Lord. Alleluia.
  10. Jesus: I give to you the gift of your tongue, the tongue upon which you receive the Almighty God. My dear ones, use your tongue to sing the praise of the Almighty God Who comes and is received on this tongue. If I come to you on your tongue, how can you with your tongue, sin? My dear ones, guard your tongue as the entryway to your soul. As a man is in his heart, so shall he be to this world. I give you a new commandment: love God with your whole heart, your whole soul and your whole being, and love your neighbor as yourself. Do not speak harshly against your brother. Do not talk about your brothers for they were created by My Father and redeemed by My Blood. They are precious to Me. Who are you that you can judge these little ones? Judging is not up to you. Loving is what you are commanded to do.
  11. Jesus: I am the Sacred Heart, on fire for love of men. I came to this earth, suffered, died and rose on the third day to bring you life. The kingdom of God is at hand, My dear ones. Guard your tongue. May your hearts be ever pure. May your hearts be filled with love. May you silence Satan in your heads for he aims to trip you and rob you of your joy. Satan wants to take the life from within you. Let go, surrender and trust for you are guarded far more than the finest pearls. You are watched and protected by the Almighty God Who lives in this world this day.

    Song: Come unto Me, all who are weary, and find rest in your soul. Come unto Me, all who are burdened. I will comfort thee.


    Jesus: Love one another as I have loved you.

              June 16, 1995 - 7:00a.m.

                R. I see before me many suffering souls
                and I feel their pain and I love them so.
                I am filled with such emotion to know God
                and how He loves each soul so dearly.

                Oh endless ocean of mercy and love for men.

                Oh endless Heart of Divine love, oh my
                beautiful Savior, Redeemer, my beloved,
                I give to You my entire being, all that I
                am and I lay prostrate before Your throne
                the tabernacle.

                    My heart sings to be in the presence of the
                Almighty God and I want to love You with the
                tenderest and deepest love my beloved Savior.

                    I see before me the sins of mankind that
                torn Your flesh and made You bleed, that
                led You to a brutal death on Calvary and
                I cry to see Your ripped flesh, bloodied
                and open wide with gashing wounds, I see
                clearly the wounds of Your body,
                torn open by the sins of men and I cry
                my Savior, my beloved one. I see the
                endless font of water and blood that
                rushed forth from Your adorable
                Heart and I am filled with such emotion
                to realize a little this stream of Divine
                Love and Divine grace. Oh the goodness
                of the Almighty God and the littlest
                of His creatures, the sins of mankind.

                    Oh adorable Heart of Jesus be attentive
                to the voice of our supplication and outpour
                Your grace and mercy on mankind.

                    I see clearly as never before Your great
                mercy and I cry to know deeper my
                adorable Lord.

                    Oh Lord, thank You for the gift of yourself,
                given for me, Your love, Your compassion,
                Your gentleness given to us your wretched
                creatures. That man be given such gifts of Your
                endless mercy and love is beyond my human
                comprehension.

                    Wrap me in Your adorable arms and saturate
                me with Your life, unworthy as I am of Your
                Divine life, I want You so much, I scarce
                can stand to offend Thee. I want to be
                bathed and saturated with Your radiant
                light, my being penetrated with the
                depth of Your mercy and love, my whole
                self to live bathed in You, being so
                closely joined that my every breath is a
                symphony, my heart sings to be united to
                You, my adorable, glorious, loving Lord.
               
                    To write to You my Savior the song of my
                soul, the endless praise and worship, I want
                to give to You is an impossibility. Words
                are so feeble to express any of the desires
                of my heart, but I endlessly yearn to
                communicate my heartfelt inexpressible
                love I have for Thee.

                    Oh beloved Savior, oh love Divine, this
                is my cross to love Thee so deeply and be
                unable in any sense of the word to give to
                You love like You deserve, I want to love Thee.
                I am so unworthy of Thee, so unworthy of
                Your Divine presence, but You in Your
                goodness and love, bother with me Your
                lowly servant and want this deep loving
                union with me. This alone is more than
                my human mind can comprehend. Oh
                my adorable Savior, I love You to
                this inexpressible point and realize a little
                Your great love for man and I am speechless
                and overwhelmed by it all. I am speechless
                the more I know about You, that in Your
                great goodness You love Your creatures so
                much that You gave Your life for us and
                give of Yourself this day.

                    What is in my being I cannot express. I
                know and comprehend such things in my
                soul and my eyes cry, for the more I know
                of it all, the less I can express. To
                know You is to know You in my soul
                and it is inexpressible in words.

                    I am in awe and wonder to know You a
                little my beloved, loving, Divine Lord and I
                want to behold You more and more and more
                and more and be lost in the endless abyss of
                Your Heart, soak in Your Divine Life and
                laid waste in Your Divine Love. This is the
                song of my soul, so weak it is in human words.
                So real it is in my heart.

                This is life, fill me more and more with Your
                life and Divine love, I am but a speck in
                Your infinite, boundless love.

                    My Divine Lord, I give my whole self to You
                and my heart cries to be ever united to you.
                Who am I that You care for me and bother with
                me. I am Your most grateful and loving creature.
                Give to me the grace never, never to offend Thee
                by any serious sin or vileness for I love Thee
                with the most adoring love and I know my
                whole being depends on Your grace given to
                me. Outpour Your grace that I may give to
                You love and praise and honor. My God I long
                to love Thee more and more, only with Your
                grace can I give to You. Give me Your grace
                that I may give more to You. I long and thirst to
                return love to You my adorable Lord, I am
                so unworthy of Thee.

                    The little here I write with paper and pen seems
                so useless, for words cannot even express such
                things, how the soul communicates with God,
                but I try with His grace because it pleases
                Him for me to do so.

                Song: I Love You Jesus

                Oh burning Heart, how dear you are to me, I see
                the host, I know you're here to Love and care for me.               
               

   

 

                Given January 12, 2012 

                R. The Spiritual life
                is the reality inside
                most like Jesus.

                To be filled with - the
                    Spirit of God - inside
                    LIFE-IN-HIM —

                INSIDE more perfected
                    as Our Heaven Father is perfect

                To hide our faults and
                    woundedness inside
                    from ourselves is
                    to stay stuck in
                    the muck —

                Inside reality to be —
                    living in the truth —
                    having the light of life
                    IN US —
                    not darkness

                    Now look inside of yourself,
                what makes you act, but all people
                see is the outside.

                    The eyes are the windows of the
                soul.

                    The hard skin - tough jaw —
                stiff mannerisms.

                    Who are we kidding?
                    God —
                    God knows the heart —
                    God knows the condition of our organs.
                    Who are we kidding.
                    If we sin or lie about our
                imperfections —
                our fear of someone seeing how
                    really insecure we really are —

                Do we think we get our acceptance
                    from others —

                We must focus on what God thinks —
                We must focus on God and how He sees our hearts and
                We can never lie to God —
                We stand naked before Him ALWAYS

                Jesus says
                    I am the way, the truth and the life

                God knows all things

                Fame and fortune cannot give us power

                What others think does not give us power —
                Power comes from God
                Power is not gotten in being accepted
                    by others

                Power is not gotten in wealth
                Wealthy - well accepted people get
                    cancer too

                Look inside —
                For we act from what we believe,
                    what we are thinking inside

                The eyes are the windows of the
                    soul

                    It shows on the outside when
                people don't like themselves —

                    Things show about our heart by
                how we smile, how we act —

                Actors learn to be actors —

                They learn to act like another person
                    to play their role —

                They study how they are inside —
                    their actions

                We study Jesus
                    life IN Him

               

                Agony

                And He sweat blood in the garden for
                    the men with pride and anger in
                    their hearts and won't care about
                    men's souls after Jesus suffered
                    and died for all our sins.

                    Shut out —

                    Shutting our brothers out with
                        bitterness and hatefulness
                        from wounds we can inflict
                        on ourselves from thoughts
                        or rejections we do to ourselves —

                Some thinking all day negatively about
                    ourselves from self talk
                    as a child —
                    violence we watched on T.V.
                    that makes us angry inside —

                Jesus: Oh you without sin cast the
                    first stone —
                    As if I know not your
                    hatred in your hearts toward
                    your brother —

                If you hate in your heart and
                    lie on your face in
                    deception and tricks
                    your anger is deep in
                    a gilded heart —
                    etched in the corners
                    of black deceit where love was
                    to radiate to others —
                    instead is your "lying love" —
                    do you know "lying love" —
                    It's in the heart — shriveled
                        in pride and seeking dominance
                        for dominance sake, in vain
                        glory, not love at all —
                    Lying on the outside as you set
                        traps for the just —

                Your lying heart will not get you
                    a place in heaven —

                I am love —

                What is in your heart is to
                    be love — not tricks —
                    so you get blacker
                    inside from your
                    unloving ways —

                I know your hearts —
                I read your hearts —

                I love those hearts likened to
                    Mine - who love men in
                    the world —

                In China, Indiana, the Church
                    was cold and because their
                    hearts are loving and warm,
                    Betty and others didn't
                    even complain —

                Others with cold hearts don't
                    even care about people's
                    basic needs, heat —
                    the mortgage payment paid
                    for a roof over the head —

                I was born in dire poverty
                    in a cave, I am the Almighty
                    God the King of Kings —

                The cold hearted think only of
                    themselves —
                    wanting to do wrong and prove
                        they are right —

                The self-talk in many heads is
                    so condemning to the man and
                    if anybody notices their
                    actions hurting others because
                    of their condemning self - talk —
                    they lunge and attack because
                    they can be sealed in their
                    black hole.

                I am light —

                You are to work on problems in love.
                You are to be caring for each other,
                    compassionate and work
                    in care and love —

                The hardest man to be close to is
                    the man addicted to bad talk
                    to himself —
                    He can tell himself all day
                    in his self-talk about what
                    every one thinks about him
                    dishonoring himself with
                    his own thoughts and
                    then wanting others to fix him
                    when most of his issues
                    come from his own disrespectful
                    thoughts he thinks others have
                    toward him —

                He can be waiting for anyone to
                    do anything — smile wrong —
                    so he can blame his angry
                    heart and untruthful disrespectful,
                    self talk on his innocent
                    brothers.

                Children who were taught as
                    little ones that they must be
                    perfect and are never good
                    enough can tell themselves at
                    50 the same bad thoughts
                    they heard as children from
                    parents —

                Who could fix those ugly, dishonorable
                    tapes in your head —

                No plumber can get in and
                    unclog 50 years of tapes
                    you believe others believe
                    about yourself.

                Read the Blue Books —

                They are true —

                God the Father created you
                    uniquely special in
                    love —

                The devil is hate —
                The devil doesn't want any love.

                Your problem when you have
                    this negative, devastated
                    ugly self-talk is yourself —
                    You disappoint yourself
                    all day with how you tell
                    yourself about yourself
                    with your old tapes —
                    groves like gutter balls in
                    your heart —

                You must parent yourself —
                    recognize good in yourself
                        and praise your heavenly
                        Father —
                    recognize evil and change it —
                        go to confession —
                        many sin against themselves —

                Read the Blue Books —

                Circulate My letters of love —

                New ideas bring growth to
                    troubled hearts —

                The angry man is the man like the
                    cold church in China - it was cold.

                How is your personal barometer?

                How do you really think about
                    yourself —
                    Are you telling yourself
                        unloving things nobody
                        thinks and
                        then you're mad when
                        somebody doesn't smile
                        at you —
                        to fix all you said to yourself
                        about yourself.

                Are you making healthy decisions about
                    what you think others are
                    thinking about you?

                If a ball player is good — he sees
                    himself as good and winning —

                A person seeing himself making
                    a gutter ball when bowling
                    will surely meet his expectations.

                My Blue Books are winners to
                    feed the hungry souls —

                Why don't you use one!!

                Think with an open mind —
                    not one closed down in a tomb
                    with darkness and cold.

                Are you locked into approval —

                Do you see everything as two-sided —

                Can't you just do what God
                    wants of you —

                Do you have to see if you can put
                    it in your 'jealous machine' —
                    'getting-over-others-machine' —
                    your "controlling-machine" for your
                        vain glory?

 

                Just do God's will !
                Just do God's will in love!!

                When you 'fear' you can close
                    DOWN — DOWN — DOWN 

 

                Jesus: Many were trained not to make decisions
                    to get their father's approval —
                    With fear they can close
                            Down
                            Down
                            Down
                            Hold out
                            Go to basement Bottom

                When God wants you to act and you
                    don't act you are rebelling against God's will —

                Some Punish others who get in their
                    way of addictions —
                    so they can keep going down —
                    The other can become an enabler —
                    Enabling them to go down —
                        Gives them power —
                        Move anybody trying to stop it
                            out of the way, they think.  

   

                Jesus: The elephant in the living room
                    nobody talks about —
                    It's against the rules to talk
                    about the dysfunction in the house.
                    Dysfunctional, Destructive Rules
                        they function by 

  

                Jesus: Low Self-esteem —

                Some can spend a life-time punishing
                    others for their low self-esteem —

                Delay —
                Delay —
                Delay —

                Don't make decisions that
                    God wants — this is slothful —
                    this is rebelling against
                    God's will!!

                Being alive
                Living in the now
                feeling what is going on — NOW —
                Living

                Some can zone out —
                    when a child they were forced
                        with pain — so they learned
                        to zone out — used imagination
                        where they didn't feel —

                Stiff —
                    How has my living in the past hurt —
                        surviving, made me cold hearted —
                        living not in reality —
                        not being able to be sensitive to
                            people's needs around me —
                        not interacting — because all
                            I see is from 'myself' —
                    How does your heart really feel?
                    Are you loving to others? — others, God
                        called you to work with —

                Do you treat them like you own them?

                Do you want perfection because
                    of how you think from childhood —

                Do you see yourself perfect — yourself up —
                    others down — not having needs?
                    Is it all about you?

                R. Our lives belong to God!!

                Do you stop and just think about Him?

                Are you loving Him —
                    really wanting to give Him love or
                    is He to put up with all you want?

                Jesus: Is God a Person
                    you give to —
                    Give praise to?
                    Love Him?

                Trees just grow.
                Birds just fly.

                Do you see how they just do it, in
                    God's Plan?

                Do you let go to God — once you have
                    done your part — can you
                    let go to God?

                Can you force a tree to grow?

                Do you celebrate life?

                Are you spontaneous or do you never
                    let go — schedule —
                    control etc.?

                Are you numb, frozen, rigid?
                Or do you bend like the trees
                    that grow and bend in God's wind?

                Did you grow up in a house with
                    unloving, hollering and you were
                    little and afraid and now you are
                    big — you are an ADULT - CHILD —
                    caught in your survival skills of
                        fear, tension, perfection,
                        not loving yourself for the
                        child God created and
                        doing His work and
                        going out — loving others —
                        Rather than being rigid from
                            the hollering, unloving,
                            unappreciated ways
                            you grew up as a small
                            child!

                TRAUMA

                    Was their a death of an important
                        person —
                    Did you deal with it?

                    Was mom and dad not available and
                        unloving because of work,
                        their past, alcohol, immaturity?

                    Do you feel your little childhood
                        was a war zone and you had
                        to survive it?

                    Did you feel somebody you really loved
                        abandoned you emotionally when
                        you needed them as a little child does?

                    Were you afraid from the hollering
                        as a little child mom or dad
                        would leave —
                        so you punish people who are
                            in your life today — to control
                            them, hold back what they
                            need so you will not be
                            abandoned as you felt in childhood —

                    Sick abandonment needs —

                    Was there abuse, emotional, physical,
                        not proper boundaries?

                    Could you trust mom and dad or others
                        as a child or was there
                        unpredictable behavior —
                        UPS ———> DOWNS
                        Roller coasters — not like normal ones —

                    Was there anger and you never learned
                        that people are to work in love and
                        solve conflicts in love so
                        relationships deepen and families
                        grow

                    Was there
                        repair of your hurts in childhood
                        or were they never validated —
                        so you stuffed hurt feelings and
                        now you act them out on
                        innocent others — with this
                        unfinished business —
                        like jumping beans — begging for resolution —

                So you don't remember, but
                    you are angry — real angry
                    for all those old hurts and
                    blow anything out of proportion
                    like a major offense against
                    you!!

                Some can't show anger so they
                    cry — that is really their
                    anger that can be coming out!!
                    Knees shake and
                    Anger rises —

                They cry if anybody in authority
                    corrects them —
                    The little child can rage
                        and say —
                    the little child inside — I can't
                        take one more thing —

                From the Inner Child of the Past it
                    says —

                    That little child of the past
                        is still in there —

                Some little girls, little boys could
                    not cry or show feelings —
                    NO FEEL of dysfunctional homes —

                So all those stuffed feelings are like a
                    stuffed rubber band can —

                If you take the lid off they will all
                    come out all over —

                So the person with stuffed feelings
                    holds the lid on all those
                    stuffed feelings for fear
                    they will lose control —

                Those feelings need to be felt —
                    cry them out and let go —
                    look at past and work into loving
                    relationships now —

                Like an onion —

                They keep coming up and you deal with
                    them —

                Not stuff them and become a mummy
                    locked in a cave like
                    Lazarus —

                R. Jesus heals —

                But with any wound — we have
                    to admit we have a sore knee to heal it —

                Moving from Hurting to Healing —
                Moving from Victim to Victory

                We can be a grateful survivor —
                We can be a Wounded - Healer — helping
                    others heal —

                We get lessons from pain —
                We gain from pain in the
                    spiritual life — Jesus: Death/Resurrection

                God is love
                Learn to laugh

                We have the ability to grow
                We can begin a new —

                Our mission: the renewal of the
                    Church and the world —

                The Blue Books are truth —
                The Blue Books are love —

                We can have good health and
                    Recovery,
                    Peace
                    Freedom
                    We forgive
                    We love others
                    We love God's creation
                    We have friends —

                We recognize our character defects —
                    4th step —
                    We make a fearless inventory
                        of our wrongs

     

 THE TWELVE STEPS OF AA 

                Here are the steps we took, which are suggested as a program of recovery:

                    1.  We admitted we were powerless over alcohol,
                            that our lives had become unmanageable.

                    2.  Came to believe that a Power greater than
                            ourselves could restore us to sanity.

                    3.  Made a decision to turn our will and our lives
                            over to the care of God as we understood Him.

                    4.  Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

                    5.  Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human
                            being the exact nature of our wrongs.

                    6.  Were entirely ready to have God remove all
                            these defects of character.

                    7.  Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

                    8.  Made a list of all persons we had harmed,
                            and became willing to make amends to them all.

                    9.  Made direct amends to such people wherever possible,
                            except when to do so would injure them or others.

                    10.  Continued to take personal inventory and when we
                            were wrong promptly admitted it.

                    11.  Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our
                            conscious contact with God as we understood Him,
                            praying only for knowledge of His will for us and
                            the power to carry that out.

                    12.  Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps,
                            we tried to carry this message to alcoholics,
                            and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

 

  
                    R. We have the ability to change
                    We have the ability to change millions of lives.

                Don't do things to get stuff back
                    for ourselves!!

                Give out-of-love!!
                Smile

                Be filled with Gratitude

                Celebrate your past and
                    grow from it —

                Celebrate the person the
                    Father created —

                There is an inner child in
                    us —
                    We must be in touch
                        with the child —
                    Parent ourselves — our
                        inner child —

                Children of alcoholics and dysfunctional
                    homes —
                    learn

                    Don't Trust, Don't Talk, Don't Feel

                There can be past Trauma
                    Stress Disorders form
                    childhood and disasters

                    1) Isolation, Estrangement —
                    2) Feeling different from others —
                        Combat
                        Disasters
                        Plane Crashes
                        Memory loss
                        Physical abuse
                        Emotional abuse in childhood
                        Seeing parents abused physically
                            or emotionally —

                These people can try to force
                    co-dependency on others

                Fear of being abandoned

                Don't really trust anyone —
                    need to control —
                    don't let anyone close

                Hurt others if they get too close

                Recovery means we filter out
                    the survival tactics of the past to
                    live a healthy loving existence —

                Some people over generalize when
                    they need to look at things

                Some people expect others to run
                    after them and make them
                    feel better when they never
                    do any recovery and are
                    locked in a sterile place
                    inside, like a baby runs to
                    mama — Adult - Child

                Some block out, all problem solving
                    and communication — no skills
                    to work on problems — life is
                    full of problems, we need to work out —

                So they can't work out anything
                    because of lack of communication

                Bishop Sheen says
                    "Communication is love"

                They expect "mind reading"

                Some have to be right at all costs —
                    even when they are wrong —
                    being right for them is everything to life —
                    Nothing else, people, goals matter —
                        only being right!!

                TIME DISTORTION

                Some people lie about time —
                    They can hold out for months and
                shun problems, making it impossible for others
                to function many times, with these unresolved
                issues, or they can act without direction and
                counsel, secretly, hurting things even worse to
                rebel.

                They are shunning their responsibility and the
                    people they are to work with,
                    shunning is a discipline to force
                    one's behavior on others for control,

                These people then that shun, justify why
                    the wrong they have done is right

                They can then ignore all the problems they
                    caused, all the things they didn't do,
                    that they should have done for
                    months, while they punished others
                    to control them.                       

                Some are addicted to excitement —
                    they cannot stand harmony
                    and peace —
                    they create trauma, tension,
                        disharmony to feel
                        comfortable

                Childhood is majorly important
                    to life — the first 6 years
                    especially —

                Parents can make childhood a
                    'playground' or a 'prison' —

                There must be repairing for damaged
                    childhood — you can't just
                    ignore it, when children were
                    suffering from dysfunction —

                Trauma, abuse, doesn't just
                    go away —

                You need to retrain your thinking —
                    fill the hole and darkness with
                    truth and love, get rid of
                    dysfunctional behavior —
                    that doesn't work and hurts others
                    and blocks healthy love relationships

                Not wear a mask and hide it —

                Not try to make others co-dependent
                    so you can force your
                    dysfunctional ways as a rule
                    they must follow —

                Rules are to be in truth and love —

                If a child was abused it wasn't
                    their fault!! They were a victim.

                Nothing will change in them until
                    they admit it — They don't have
                    to blame, but the truth needs to
                    be validated in them to heal.

                An alcoholic must admit it is real
                    to quit —

                A dysfunctional person — if
                        co-dependent must admit it
                        if an abuser uses an abuse cycle
                        they must admit it if they want to stop it
                        if they are an angry person
                        they have to deal with their anger
                    We must admit the truth to heal —

                    One can think they can lie and
                        then they keep trying to fix
                        the unfinished business
                        'acting-it-out' on others —

                God can heal us —
                Love is the answer —
                Forgiveness without blaming —

                Victims can be deluded
                    in denial —

                    Secrets

                    NO TALK

                Someone physically abused was taught
                    the secret of never telling
                    anyone — it was the rule
                    of the house —
                    THE NO TALK RULE

                Jesus gives us these Blue Books to heal.
                He is God —
                God the Father is the Perfect Father —
                God is real —

                There is the NO TRUST rule in the
                    dysfunctional house —
                    Unpredictable Behavior
                    Not accountability for actions —
                    In healthy homes children learn
                        rules — behavior is predictable

                    IN DYSFUNCTIONAL Homes
                        behavior is Unpredictable

                Rules are dysfunctional rules —
                    A parent is very controlling usually
                        forcing the dysfunction —

                    The other parent is an enabler and
                    The Merry-Go-Round called
                        denial goes round and round —
                        in denial —

                We can't heal from wounds
                    we don't know we have.

                Many cannot remember —
                    Stuffed feelings —
                    Parents may not want to validate
                        the trauma the child
                        suffered —
                        they can be in denial
                        themselves

                Dysfunction is generational —

                Victims have shame —

                Parenting oneself —
                Trusting oneself —
                Seeing oneself as the Creation of the Father —
                Seeing oneself belonging to God —

From a Lenten Homily, March 24, 2000

Live in the Moment

    Today’s Gospel in its story certainly points ahead to Jesus in His Passion and death. And as we read passages such as this during the Lenten season, we are reminded once again that the Church in her Liturgy of the Word gives us an opportunity to undergo a purification, an ever deepening cleansing of ourselves so that we may be a more fit instrument for receiving the great graces which are to be given to us at the time of the Resurrection memorial on Easter. And so all in all, Lent is a time of purification to prepare us for ever-greater gifts of the Lord. It’s a time of self-discipline, a time to renew our efforts to be self-disciplined in the service of the Lord. Self-discipline is an aspect of purification. And I suggest that one of the most difficult acts of self-discipline in the spiritual journey is to concentrate on the present moment. We have a very strong tendency to disregard the importance of the present moment by focusing in a wrong way on the past or in a wrong way on the future. There are proper occasions for thinking of the past and the future. For example, we have to learn from the past and we have to prepare for the future, but our great emphasis has to be upon the present. There is a Latin axiom which says, age quod agis, age quod agis, which means: do what you are doing, concentrate on the present. And of course we are familiar with that term in the history of spirituality: the sacrament of the present moment. And so the discipline of Lent certainly encourages us to include in a deeper self-discipline a greater determination to get as much as we can out of the present moment. People with a terminal illness have an opportunity as they prepare for death for increased prayer, contrition, love of God. However, some are taken very, very quickly. But for those who have the opportunity of knowing with some certainty the time of their death, I’m sure as they look back on their lives, they are saddened by the many times they did not use time and opportunities for the service of the Lord properly, and are overjoyed at those times in which they did use the present opportunity properly. A great means we have of living in the present properly is a greater focus upon our Lord. For if I have that awareness of the fact I am united with Jesus here and now, why should I be concerned so much about the future or the past? Yes, a great help in living in the present and deriving all the good we can from it for ourselves and others is an ever greater focus upon Jesus, because the more I focus upon Jesus and the more I live with Him in the present moment, the more I am satisfied with the present moment. And so let us in our Lenten activity resolve to grow in that self-discipline - which is very difficult at times - to really live in the presence with the fullness of our being as much as is possible, with the help of God’s grace. Now is the day of salvation. Now is the day of salvation.

end of Father Carter's homily

 

                R. Many children didn't feel safe —
                Children should feel safe —
                If they didn't feel safe in childhood,
                They may not feel safe now.

                Those in denial —
                    pretend it didn't happen —
                    Make light of it
                    We need a Safe Place

                Nothing will change until it becomes
                    real — Validated
                    Seek the truth — Feel — love and forgive

                It's okay not to be as your family was —
                    generational healing —

                Persons on a pity pot at 50 —
                    holding out
                    angry
                    they have stuffed feelings from
                        little children —
                    They act out, back at home with
                        mommy and daddy —
                    They want to feel —

                They think at 50
                    Somebody should understand their
                        2 year old anger —

                People getting married may start
                    acting out with spouse —
                    So many divorces —
                    A man can act like a 2 year old —
                    Or a woman punishing her husband
                        for nothing and expecting him
                        to kiss her and make it
                        all better —

                The thing is — it doesn't make it better —
                    they have to see what is inside
                        making themselves act-out
                        provoking people —
                        pity-pot —
                        wanting people running back to them
                            when they abuse and control
                            them —

                If our emotions are more than is necessary
                    for a given situation we have been
                    triggered —

                A person can be passive-aggressive — so
                    angry they keep provoking
                    another with the abuse cycle —
                    Stabbing a guy in the back —

                A person raging and abuses others actively
                    stabs in the front —

                Some people feel crazy all their life —
                    provoke others when they are frozen
                    just so they can watch another so they can
                    feel — they are stiff and frigid —
                    projecting

                We are to BE CONSISTENT and STRUCTURED

                ABUSERS were probably abused as children
                Dysfunction is generational
                They think abuse is normal

Guiding Light - Reflect on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light homily series - Reflect on the Word - Cycle B     The Word leaves an impression on our souls. In my thoughts and reflections are born a more tangible understanding of these eternal concepts presented in the Gospels and the readings. Anyone can read a sentence, but not anyone can absorb it's true meaning. Truth, in this day and age, is almost a matter of opinion or individual entitlement. We believe that Christ's truth is our Roman Catholic Church. We, as priests, champion it's teachings; we are ambassadors for the Pope and Christ to those faces looking at us. We are the light by which our congregation reads to reflect upon real truth and we do it hand in hand. $15

Guiding Light - Steadfast to the Son
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle A of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light homily series - Steadfast to the Son - Cycle A    The sunflower is a great example of how we should be steadfastly guided by light. What a powerful thought that this exceptional plant is not stuck in one pose day in and day out, yet adaptable and magnetized to the sun. We feel the same about our Son. Our heads turns to face Christ as each day presents its challenges to find light. We join together like plants in a field and soak up the Son through the pulpit. We are a warm circle of strength using the wind of our breath to carry our priests' words, Christ's words, to new rich soil. $15

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Liturgical Year
$ 10.00 plus postage

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul - Cycle C    In a world rapidly advancing and encouraging personal gain, we are faced with modern problems. There is a challenge to find time in our busy schedules for Sunday Mass or a family meal. We are able to research, shop, bank and even work without hearing one human voice. It is no wonder that we may often feel disconnected and famished at our week's end. In Fr. Joe's third book of homilies from Cycle C, we are reminded of the charity that Christ intended us to show each other. We have a calling to turn the other cheek and be the Good Samaritan to others. We are rewarded with the Father's kingdom and love when we are not worthy. We are not left alone or hungry. $15

Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word - Cycle B    At times we may feel that our path to Christ is a bit "out of focus". Like the disciples in the Book of Mark, this ordinary life clouds our vision of Christ's Divinity. We may doubt the practicality or possibility of applying His teachings and example to our modern life. Cycle B's homilies are a "guiding light" to help us realize Jesus' Messianic greatness and His promise of better things to come. $15

Guiding Light - The Word Alive in Our Hearts

Priestly Newsletter - 2000 #1 - CD. - Christ is Our Strength - Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. It is so beautiful. "This brief passage contains one of the greatest lessons of the spiritual life. As we progress along our spiritual journey, we become increasingly aware of how weak we are in our-selves, but how strong we are in Christ. To experience our weakness involves suffering. The degree and kind of suffering can vary. The suffering can include the experience of the classical dark night of the spirit as described by St. John of the Cross. One of the main purposes of the dark night is to make a person keenly aware of his or her helplessness without God." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10

Each one is also called to share in that suffering through which the redemption was accomplished. He is called to share in that suffering through which all human suffering has also been redeemed. In bringing about the redemption through suffering, Christ has also raised human suffering to the level of the redemption. Thus each man in his suffering can also become a sharer in the redemptive suffering of Christ..." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10
