1 John 3: 7-10

Children, do not let anyone
    lead you astray.
Whoever acts uprightly is upright,
just as he is upright.
Whoever lives sinfully 
    belongs to the devil, 
since the devil has been a sinner 
    from the beginning. 
This was the purpose 
    of the appearing of the Son of God, 
to undo the work of the devil. 
No one who is a child of God sins 
because God’s seed remains in him. 
Nor can he sin, 
    because he is a child of God. 
This is what distinguishes 
the children of God 
    from the children of the devil: 
whoever does not live uprightly 
and does not love his brother 
is not from God.

 

Psalm 98: 1, 7-9

Sing a new song to Yahweh, 
for he has performed wonders, 
his saving power is in his right hand 
and his holy arm. 

Let the sea thunder, and all that it holds, 
the world and all who live in it. 
Let the rivers clap their hands, 
and the mountains shout for joy together, 

at Yahweh’s approach, for he is coming 
to judge the earth; 
he will judge the world with saving justice 
and the nations with fairness.

   

                R. The devil is hate —

                Jesus is love — He shows us His Heart.
                    Jesus wants us to focus on His
                    love for us.

                For every act of love a person does to
                    others - the devil wants to sow
                    hatred —

                As God works in one spreading love —

                Satan is right at hand finding a
                    weak link to try to control and
                    use to combat the love one
                    is giving —
                    Satan presses on a person in
                    jealousies, anger, envy,
                    wanting power-over,
                    slothfulness —

                Satan uses the weak link to
                    manipulate and spread his hate —
                    They can become enslaved to satan — NOT FREE

  

Excerpt of The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, by Louis J. Puhl, S.J.
 

136. THE FOURTH DAY

        A MEDITATION ON TWO STANDARDS

The one of Christ, our supreme leader and lord,
the other of Lucifer, the deadly enemy of our
human nature

PRAYER.   The usual preparatory prayer.

window at a former Jesuit Seminary

137. FIRST PRELUDE.   This is the history. Here it will be that Christ calls and wants all beneath His standard, and Lucifer, on the other hand, wants all under his.

138. SECOND PRELUDE.   This is a mental representation of the place. It will be here to see a great plain, comprising the whole region about Jerusalem, where the sovereign Commander-in-Chief of all the good is Christ our Lord; and another plain about the region of Babylon, where the chief of the enemy is Lucifer.

139. THIRD PRELUDE.   This is to ask for what I desire. Here it will be to ask for a knowledge of the deceits of the rebel chief and help to guard myself against them; and also to ask for a knowledge of the true life exemplified in the sovereign and true Commander, and the grace to imitate Him.
   

FIRST PART

THE STANDARD OF SATAN

140. FIRST POINT.   Imagine you see the chief of all the enemy in the vast plain about Babylon, seated on a great throne of fire and smoke, his appearance inspiring horror and terror.

141. SECOND POINT.   Consider how he summons innumerable demons, and scatters them, some to one city and some to another, throughout the whole world, so that no province, no place, no state of life, no individual is overlooked.

142. THIRD POINT.   Consider the address he makes to them, how he goads them on to lay snares for men and bind them with chains. First they are to tempt them to covet riches (as Satan himself is accustomed to do in most cases) that they may the more easily attain the empty honors of this world, and then come to overweening pride.

   The first step, then, will be riches, the second honor, the third pride. From these three steps the evil one leads to all other vices.
   

SECOND PART

THE STANDARD OF CHRIST

143.   In a similar way, we are to picture to ourselves the sovereign and true Commander, Christ our Lord.

144. FIRST POINT.   Consider Christ our Lord, standing in a lowly place in a great plain about the region of Jerusalem, His appearance beautiful and attractive.

145. SECOND POINT.   Consider how the Lord of all the world chooses so many persons, apostles, disciples, etc., and sends them throughout the whole world to spread His sacred doctrine among all men, no matter what their state or condition.

146. THIRD POINT.   . . .

                R. Satan hates —
                    Satan doesn't give up —
                    Satan wants love to turn to
                        division —
                    Love in marriages, love in the Church —
                    Satan wants argumentation.
                    Satan wants to discredit
                        just authority —

                We can see a battle, a war —
                    say as in the early Church —
                    the Emperor wanted to be worshipped
                        as Divine

                    He killed Christians who would not
                        bow to him and recognize
                        him as Divine —

                    The devil wants Christians wiped out.

                The growth of the early Church was
                    rapid because of the
                    persecution and martyred
                    Christians.

                Christians were whipped,
                    scourged, beheaded
                    for not worshipping these
                    false gods.

                We see those fighting for truth and the
                    Church, ready to die for Jesus.

                Apostles were put to death, crucified!!

                Do we see Christians today fighting to serve
                    Jesus in love and not satan in discord
                    and selfishness.

                When we see the message of God's love
                    given so ardently in the Blue Books,
                    we know satan wants these
                    letters of Jesus' love blocked —
                    Satan hates the letters focusing
                    on the Blessed Sacrament.
                    Satan hates —
                    Satan hates people loving and
                        serving God.

                A person acting in hate feels hate inside —
                He can become used to darkness and division.

                Prayer services where we are united
                    praying before the Blessed Sacrament
                    can bring down so much grace
                    for the priests, the Church and
                    the world; Masses in which
                    men say the prayer before Mass —
                    wanting to be united in deep
                    love — can bring down overwhelming
                    grace —

 

A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

-Mass Book, December 27, 1995

 

                R. Satan is hate —

                Satan hates anyone united in loving
                    God and praying to God.

                God works through us to be witnesses
                    of the light to others and spread
                    the love of God.

                Satan presses on people, satan wants them
                    acting in darkness, in anger,
                    hating, satan wants them
                    blocking the work, the prayers.

                Jesus: It is a battle, like the early Christians
                    that suffered martyrdom for their
                    belief in Jesus —
                    the devil wanted men to act in hate
                    and kill the Christians, the wives,
                    the children —
                    the devil is relentless — he wants
                    babies killed in the womb —
                    the devil attacks the innocent,
                        those loving and serving God —

                The devil is a fallen angel —
                    He said "I will not serve, God"

                The devil works in vices so others will
                    do his work -

                There is an energy when satan works to take-out
                    what is good and loving and
                    the heart of the man acting
                    in hate against one serving
                    God. There is a negative -
                    demonic energy when satan
                    comes to divide and act in disharmony.
                    The devil acts in sneaky ways,
                    manipulating his prey through
                    false reasoning, distorted thinking,
                    an altered reality —

                The heart of the one succumbing
                    to the temptations of the devil
                    can give into the devil
                    because of anger, hatred, wanting
                    to punish the good guy and discredit
                    the authority and "bring-down-the-house"

                The devil uses jealous eyes which
                    comes from a jealous angry heart,
                    not a heart like Mary, a heart
                    of pure and tender love.

                Spiritual warfare —

                The devil tempted Eve in the Garden
                    with pride, greed, disobedience
                    to God.

                There is a devil and he roams the
                    earth like a roaring lion —
                    tempting people to devour them,
                    so he can use them to hate not
                    love. The devil wants the person
                    to put, themselves, before God.
                    A person blind with hatred and
                    anger acting on the negative energy of
                    the devil wants to bring down
                    a house of love.

                R. God has given us His Covenant of love.

                So serious is God's love commitment
                    to us — it is called a Covenant.

                It is God's will we love God first and
                    love our neighbor as ourselves.

                The devil presses on his instruments
                    to be consumed with details and
                    hatred.

                Anger is an energy —

                A person giving into hatred and anger
                    acting out on innocent others
                    is miserable because he has
                    distanced himself further and
                    further from God who makes us
                    happy.

                Then the person can lie about their
                    angry heart and their deeds
                    of hatred becoming more and more
                    blinded to their crimes.
                    The hungering for the excitement
                    of the unsettled spirit can lead
                    to evil attacks on others, provoking
                    to make another lose control.
                    The devil wants power-over.

                An abuser thrives on power-over —
                    like hammering a nail in the hole —
                    It is a lot of little things that
                    are attacks before they really
                    get the nail deeply in the hole —

                We see the suffering of Jesus —
                    We see the depth of His wounds —
                    We know a little the depth of
                    His love, but we can never
                    comprehend His love entirely —

                We see Jesus' scourged back and we know
                    the hatred in men's hearts that gave
                    the deep blows to Jesus.

                Satan wants deep darkness —
                    Hatred that is deep and
                    getting deeper in
                    men to act out
                    anger and hatred against
                    other men.

                Satan wants disorders, confusion,
                Satan wants men to sin against God.

                Acting in sin against God and
                    our brothers violates the
                    greatest commandment
                    of love: to love God with
                    our whole heart, our whole
                    being and our whole self —
                    and to love our neighbor
                    as ourselves.

                Not doing God's will makes misery
                    in our lives and hurts many
                    others, including the ones hurt
                    by the good we failed to do
                    when we chose evil.

                A man who is in the habit of
                    sin can go quickly from
                    bad to worse. The devil
                    doesn't miss a beat to tempt
                    the man further and deeper
                    with distorted thinking to
                    grow in anger and hatred.

                Jesus: I am love. The man living in acting
                    out evil on others is far from
                    Me and their nagging angry
                    heart does not stop, but
                    is susceptible to greater
                    and greater evil temptation
                    from satan —

                Now listen —

                    Satan is a prowling lion,
                    prowling the earth looking
                    for a prey to devour —
                    The person who gives in
                    grows more and more in
                    their altered reality —
                    not likened to Me —
                    they have missed the boat,
                    and the chance to be formed
                    more and more in My image
                    and likeness.

                The Holy Spirit works in the Heart of
                    Mary forming the person in
                    My image and likeness —

                The evil spirit works through the
                    wounded human nature to
                    get the person to give into anger,
                    pride, jealousy, envy, slothfulness —
                    to have a heart of selfishness
                    and hatred —> never love —

                I AM LOVE —

                Satan is hate!

                A person never stays the same
                    in the Spiritual life —

                Eve sinned —
                Adam sinned —

                There is original sin —

                Mary is the New Eve —
                Mary is the perfect handmaid of
                    the Lord —

                The devil wants a person to
                    be full of hate.

                 Jesus: My Mother's Heart is pure and
                Immaculate because of her love.
                My Mother's Heart is tender
                and giving selfless.

                My Mother is the New Eve.

                My Mother was conceived without
                sin.

                I am love, I show you My Heart of love.

   

                From Blue Book 4

September 7, 1994

This Is Reality!

R.  What a feeling! I feel oneness with the Holy Trinity, a feeling of flutters in my chest, as in being in love. I am at peace to know the Holy Trinity dwells within me. I am so filled in my heart to know Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I cannot explain. I love God so much and I feel this constant awareness of God in my heart.

    He gave me intellectual visions in which I was so aware of the presence of Father, Son and Holy Spirit that it felt as if the world stopped, it wouldn't have mattered. I received such awareness of the other side, such an awareness of God's love, there is such peace to know this in my heart, my heart feels so full. I feel the presence of the indwelling of the One, Triune God within me!

   It is so clear: why do we worry when this is reality? Such an awareness of God - I feel His presence within me.

Before the Tabernacle

 Glorious Mysteries

The Resurrection

1. Jesus: Do not give into the temptations of Satan to distract you. Put your hearts totally into My hands and focus totally on My intense love for you.

2. Jesus: You are in the presence of the Almighty God. I am here and I am giving to you messages of My intense love for you.

3. Jesus: The seeds of time move exceedingly slow. Continue to plant seeds. Do not worry if they harvest or if they reap. I am Jesus and I am tending to all the work that you are doing.

4. Jesus: I send you out into the fields and you will know that what you are doing is producing good fruit.

5. Jesus: I rose on the third day to give you life.

6. Jesus: As you come to Me and I fill you with My life, you are blessed more and more in your life for the joy is within your heart and you know peace.

7. Jesus: Nothing on the face of this earth fills the ailing heart but My love.

8. Jesus: I send you into battle among the wolves and you will plant My seeds and they will be nurtured and they will grow.

9. Jesus: The seeds of time move exceedingly slow.

10. Jesus: Men are stubborn in their hearts. They are focused on themselves. They are not focused on the Almighty God.

 

Jesus: You must not focus on the distractions that Satan is planting, to stop you. Do not be discouraged. I outpour My grace to you when you come to Me. Let go. Love God, Love others. Filled with My grace you will be My instruments in reaching many. I am attentive to your every need.

Glory Be

Song between decade: Come Holy Spirit

 

The Ascension

1. Jesus: You must have faith and trust. Put yourself in the hands of the Almighty God and know that this is My work. It is through Me that it will be accomplished. You plant the seeds and I will water and provide the sunlight.

2. Jesus: The seeds grow very slowly. You do not stand and holler at the seeds to make them grow. Neither should you holler at your brothers.  You should plant the seeds and be on your way.

3. Jesus: I tell you about trust. On the third day I rose from the dead. I died a bitter death. Think of that...life after death. Think of this My dear ones, that I ascended into Heaven. You must not worry, fret or fume. I am attentive to your every need. This is My work.

4. Jesus: Your discouragement does not provide a purpose. Nothing moves ahead if you give into discouragement. You must surrender and let go  and let Me operate. You must keep your hearts forever fixed on My love. I ascended into the clouds, you too, can be lifted high above the troubles that are on this earth. If the hot air balloon rises, so too you will rise into the air. You will be free of the troubles that engulf you.

5. Jesus: Do not be focused on the things of this earth, what you are to wear, what you are to put on, how you look. Be focused on My love and My love will radiate from your beautiful faces as My life grows more and more within you.

6. Jesus: Live to help build My Kingdom. As you are in your heart, you will be to this world. My way is peace, always the way of peace. When you are troubled, when things are troubling you, you must release and let go. My way is peace. I am caring for your every need. I am Jesus. You must trust. You must not give in to the taunting of Satan to distract you and to confuse you. My way is the way of peace. My peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you. I came into this world in peace and I leave in peace. I died on the cross in total peace. You must not worry; this is from Satan. I am Jesus, your Savior. Release all of your worries. Put them at the foot of the cross and proceed on your way to spread the seeds into this world, the seeds of My love that will forever grow as I nurture and provide the sunlight.

7. Jesus: Lifted high on the cross, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died. Do you not think My beloved ones, if I gave My all for you, My flesh and My blood, that I will not provide for your needs this day...that I would not try to bring the souls to My Heart?

8. Jesus: I give to men a free will. A free will to love Me. Many have chosen to control themselves to not let go to Me. Let go to Me. Love is surrender. It is not control and pride. You must come to Me with a heart that is humble and pure. I am waiting for our love affair. Exchange any bitterness for hearts that are filled with love. You will not be stopped on your way. You may run into obstacles but I am guarding you and protecting you and this is My work.

9. Song: Come unto Me all who are weary

10. Jesus: The seeds that you plant may grow very slowly.

 

The Descent of the Holy Spirit

1. Jesus: You must not focus on yourself.  You must focus on Me.

2. Jesus: Let the Holy Spirit move within you and lead you on your way. The Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles and the Virgin Mary and they were transformed from fear to fearlessness. The Apostles went out to preach the Gospel Message and many were converted. Many will be converted because of your efforts here to spread My burning love.

3. Jesus: Men's hearts are hard and many have turned to stone. You must pray as you've never prayed before for it is only through My grace filling you that you will be able to accomplish My work.

4. Jesus: Many have built walls around their hearts so thick and so dense that it seems impossible to reach the hearts. But with your efforts and My grace and the fire of God's love, many will turn from their stone-hardened hearts to hearts of love and they can be on fire with the love of God.

5. Mary: Pray that the Holy Spirit descends upon the priests and fills them with love that the Holy Spirit fills them with the fire of God's love. They will operate in love. Pray the priests celebrates the Mass in such oneness with Jesus. That they are more and more like my Son Jesus.

6. Jesus: The Apostles were locked in prison. The Apostles proceeded ahead with the fearlessness of the Holy Spirit. It is through the Holy Spirit that you too, will proceed ahead with such fearlessness and many hearts will be converted because of your efforts. If you look behind you, you will see all of the fruits of your labors. I am Jesus. I am asking you to trust in My Sacred Heart, to let go, to surrender, to come to My Heart and let Me fill you with My love. You My dear ones, will have results that you cannot even believe for I am magnifying all of your efforts.

7. Song: Come give me life, abundant life. I thirst to be with Thee.

8. Jesus: These Rosaries are the stories of Our lives. Life My life, death and resurrection in your life. You will continue My work on earth in your lives if you live My life, death, and resurrection in your life. A constant dying to your impurities and rising in Me. See how your life is lived in living as the Father calls you.

9. Jesus: I Am who Am!  I am the Almighty God. I have all the power. Do you realize this, My dear ones? You must focus on the power of the Almighty God. Do not worry for those around you. How they wane in and out for it is in focusing on Me that the work will be accomplished. If you look to others, you will be distracted and loose your way. It is only through Me that the job will get done.

10. Jesus: Satan will create such confusion that you will not even believe the confusion that you are suffering. You must come and dwell in the Heart of My Mother and as you dwell in Her Heart, you dwell deeper in My Heart.

 

The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven

1. Jesus: Focus on the Heart of the Virgin Mary, pure and gentle, sweet and loving. Go to the Heart of the Virgin Mary and dwell there. Let her hold you tenderly in her arms like a gentle baby that she caresses and holds to her breast.

2. Jesus: Tenderness, joy, love and peace. Come to My Heart, My dear ones. Let Me hold you and press your head gently to My breast. I treat you with such gentleness. My Mother holds you as a tender baby in her arms. This is the love that We give to you. You must focus on Our gentleness and tenderness and the way that We love you.

3. Jesus: Let your hearts be as pure as the lilies in the fields, for as you dwell in the Heart of Mary and you operate as she operates; you love as she loves. Love God and love each other. Your hearts will become more pure in all of your actions.

 4. Jesus: All of your actions must be governed by your immense love for God. Every action loving. Focus totally on the love of God and your actions being motivated only by this love of Him.

5. Jesus: Do you not like the word 'reaction'? You are responding to the love of God all through your life. Pray more and more to respond to the love of God as Mary responded to the love of God.

6. Jesus: Her Heart was pure. Her face gentle and kind. Her skin was beautiful. You, My dear ones, will possess such beauty, 'without', when you dwell in the Heart of the Virgin Mary, but, 'within', you will possess the kingdom of God if you will live in the Hearts of Mary and Jesus. The world will see this love radiate from your very being.

7. Jesus: I set before you two men...one consumed with hate, one consumed with love...Judas and John. My dear ones, let your hearts dwell in the Heart of Mary and your heart will be a heart that is responding always in such purity and humility to the love of God.

8. Jesus: Time seems to move so slow sometimes, but in a second you are snatched from your place. I am guarding you and watching you. A time will come when you are called into My Heavenly kingdom. Prepare your hearts by dwelling in Our Hearts. For this hour, for you do not know the time nor the place. You will be snatched from your bed from wherever you are.

9. Jesus: You will not be forewarned. You will have to leave whatever you are doing and come to Me, the Almighty God.

10. Jesus: I am love. I am alive. I live in the hearts of men. Do not focus on those things that are pressing down and distracting you. If I gave to you a test at this moment, would you pass this test? My Way is the Way of the cross. It is very difficult. You must not give in to promptings from others and satan that take you from doing God's will. You must come to Me and spend quiet moments with Me dwelling in My Heart and the Heart of My Mother.

 

The Coronation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

1. Jesus: Mary was crowned Queen of Heaven and earth. 

2. Jesus: Mary loves the Father, Son and Holy Spirit more than any human person. Dwell in her heart and you will be closest to My Heart.

3. Jesus: The Father so loved the Virgin Mary that He made her the Mother of His Son.

4. Jesus: She is adorned with a golden crown for she is truly Queen; Queen of Peace. Mary loved dearly the Father. Mary loves the Father, Son and Holy Spirit with such deep love. Come and dwell in her Heart and love with her Heart. You will love more deeply the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

5. Jesus: Live to love!

6. Jesus: My messages are very simple, pray for grace to understand My message to you. Come to Our Hearts and We will bathe you with light and love and you will comprehend more and more insight into the Divine Mysteries.

7. Jesus: Do not focus on those things around you, where other people take you from My focus. You must keep your focus always on God.

 8. Jesus: Satan aims to trip you up and stop you on your way. Do not give in to satan. Why would you want to do the work of satan? He will talk in your head and you can become distracted and confused. You must not listen to satan. Come and I will tell you of My abundant love.

9. Jesus: Her eyes were bright and beautiful because of the pure love within her Heart.

10. Jesus: Let My love fill your hearts. I am outpouring My love to you, My dear ones. I am outpouring My grace in you. Let go and let Me fill you in such depth with My love.

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

$ 10.00  plus postage

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

Priestly Newsletter - 2000 #2 - CD. - Suffering: A Source of Life - Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. Fr. Carter knew suffering that year. His voice is so powerful as he read each Newsletter from his heart and soul. "Every man has his own share in the redemption. 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
