                November 11, 2013

                R. God loves us, We have dignity. Jesus died
                for us.

                    We are so used to seeing ourselves through
                our imperfect eyes, we operate from our
                wounded human nature in seeing with
                distorted vision. We see God with distorted
                vision, we see others with distorted vision,
                we see ourselves with our distorted vision.

                    When we are filled more and more abundantly
                with His life - we see through God's eyes
                and it is beautiful, we are the beautiful
                creation of Our Father in heaven.

                    Our ransom is the Blood of Jesus.
                We are precious like the Song from Jesus
                says.

                Sing: A Song from Jesus

                R. Do we believe the Blue Books? We pray
                for an increase in faith, hope and love to
                strengthen us in Him.

                    A man of the world seeks to gratify
                himself and bring himself in greater
                perfection in the eyes of the world.
                A man of the world sees through the vision
                of men - very imperfectly.

                    Reality is seen, as it really is, through
                the eyes of the Heavenly Maker. We see the
                Plan of God, The Plan of Salvation, The
                true treasure. We see the wide vision,
                not living 70, 80, 90 years among men –
                We see ourselves as being called by Him
                to live now in salvation history.
                We see ourselves becoming as God wants
                us to be, not focusing on the minds of
                men, focusing on the Divine Master –
                His Plan in making us, His Plan in
                putting us on the earth at this particular
                time in Salvation History.

                    Look at the Preparation before Jesus
                was born. He fulfilled the Prophesies.
                The Jews had to be the way they were
                for Him to come. They believed in the one,
                true God. There was preparation, there
                was prophets, there was the formation
                of the chosen people – God worked among
                them. Some rebelled, Some said no
                and did their own thing. We see God
                working on Jonah, God working with
                Noah, God working with Moses,
                Abraham, Jacob. We see God
                calling Jeremiah –

                At the destined moment of human history
                Jesus came. Mary was conceived without
                sin. It was a heavenly Plan, a Plan
                of God in Salvation History.

                    Jesus came to teach us about His vision,
                His love. Jesus taught us. Jesus taught
                us about love and His love for us.
                He taught us about Sacrifice, the most
                pure and holy sacrifice given to the Father,
                Himself, His life, how He gave every day,
                living in love according to the Father's will.
                Jesus taught us about the Prophets on the
                way to Emmaus.

                    Jesus taught –

                    Jesus came a little King in Bethlehem,
                honored by the Kings of the world –
                adored – what was important was
                Jesus, not riches, not status.

                    Herod wanted to kill Jesus –

                    The 3 Kings came to Him in poverty
                to worship – The star a sign from God the
                Father, the grandeur of that holy event
                for mankind.

                    Every star since hangs in the sky,
                a reminder of God's precious light
                shining in the darkness on us.
                We are so important to the heavenly Father
                too. But satan wants us to see through
                the eyes of man, the eyes of the world
                and miss the heavenly plan of God
                the Father.

                    Let us come before God and worship.
                Jesus truly present in the Eucharist, in
                the Church in China, the heavenly King,
                the world is busy – God calls us to
                worship Him – not in Churches of
                grandeur, but in poverty and simplicity,
                to love Him.

                    The Kings came to Bethlehem to worship
                and adore Jesus. Bethlehem was a stable
                of dire poverty - not a castle, not ivory
                or gold. The star shown above the crib
                and these Kings of the earth bowed to
                the Divine King, they followed the star,
                their eyes were on the Plan of the Heavenly
                Father. They presented the small little
                King, the Christ Child, gifts of gold,
                franecense and myrrh. They bowed before
                God in this poverty, Jesus, the King of heaven
                and earth; Jesus the Divine King.

                    Herod's plan was one of making himself
                over at any expense. He was threatened –
                his power by anyone in the world over
                him.

                    That is the way of satan - envy - anything
                good others do - even according to God's plan –
                brings the envious person down, they think.
                They are wounded by original justice.
                They do not see the dignity of their fellows
                and they are envious when others excel.
                Jealousy is another one of the wounded
                vision. The jealous person doesn't
                like a person who looks good. This
                is how satan uses people to try to
                take out those doing God's work - jealous
                eyes!!

                We see the pride of Eve in the garden -
                She wanted to be equal to God – She wasn't
                bowing before God – She listened to satan –
                She wanted to be equal to the Divine God.
                She wasn't bowing before God in humility.
                The man who wants to alter the order
                God wants and raise himself above
                God and those He places over them
                is acting from his woundedness –
                rebelling against authority – not bowing
                before the King.

 

Excerpt of The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, by Louis J. Puhl, S.J. P.60-61
 

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.   . . .
   

end of excerpt of The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius

 

                R. Jesus came and He walked without
                showing His Might. We see the teaching
                before the doctors in the temple when
                He was 12. He showed His wisdom in
                answering their questions. To us it
                shows that He was God in the hidden
                years He chose to live with Mary and
                Joseph – It was part of God's Plan for
                Jesus to live this quiet life.

                We see the Baptism of Jesus by John.
                We hear the voice of the Father
                "This is My beloved Son in whom I am well
                pleased."
                We know the Holy Spirit was seen above His
                    head.

                This reminds us of the great gift of
                    baptism for us.
                    We receive a sharing in His life.
                    Our knowing and loving capacity
                    is elevated.
                    God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit remain
                    in our graced baptized soul. WOW WOW

                God dwells in us.

                We can see more and more clearly as we are
                    filled more abundantly with His
                    life in us.


                We see His first miracle, the Marriage
                    at Cana - and Jesus changed
                    water into wine.

                I saw what Mary taught us –
                    to love Jesus –
                    to love our brothers –
                    to live in unity and
                    to respect the dignity of all men.

                But God gives us the Commandments.
                    God gives us His teachings –

                We have the Church, Christ instituted
                    the Church.

                We have the bread of life – the Word
                    and the Eucharist.

                Because of our distorted vision and our
                    wounded human nature - we
                    make bad choices –
                    We act unlovingly –
                    We don't even see ourselves as
                    God does –

                Fr. Carter said, we would fall over if
                    we saw our own graced soul.

                God calls us and we are to respond to
                    God's call as He wants us to be –
                    obedience to God's will.

                If we really saw, reality as it is through
                    God's eyes, we would not stoop to
                    step on the head of our brother
                    doing God's will because we don't
                    recognize our calling and seeing
                    how precious we are to God.

February 17, 1994 Seek True Treasures

 

                R. See through the eyes of God - not distorted
                    vision –

                We don't see as we should –

                In the Annunciation we see the angel
                    appear to Mary.
                    We see how Mary, the sinless one,
                    responded.

                    Mary always did the will of
                        the Father –
                        She obeyed the Father's Plan –
                        She pondered things in her
                            heart.
                        Mary, the Spouse of the Holy Spirit.
                        Mary, full of grace.
                        Mary, the perfect handmaid
                            of the Lord.

                We see Mary goes to her cousin
                    Elizabeth. We see the picture
                    unfolding through the eyes of God.
                    Elizabeth is old, Elizabeth thought
                    barren and yet she is carrying
                    John the Baptist, who is to prepare
                    the way for Jesus.

                    John lost his head – Jesus
                is the head – John said I must
                decrease, He must increase –
                John lost his head. 

 

                R. In the Visitation Mary is filled
                with the Holy Spirit – she is carrying
                Jesus in her womb –

                    She cries out the Magnificat –
                Vision - she gives us vision in this
                She speaks of generations –
                She sees salvation history, the Plan
                of the Father, she sees herself
                in the eyes of God –
                she is under Him –
                she rejoices in her place –
                she is open –
                she is His instrument –
                the Holy Spirit speaks through her –

                We see Elizabeth recognizes
                    Mary and Jesus - even John
                    in her womb jumps for
                    joy –

                The vision is not on the worldly
                    eyes - it is the vision
                    of the heavenly Father.

                Call - Response according to God's will
                Call - Response    →  Mary
                Call - Response    →  Elizabeth
                Call - Response    →  John

                Perfect obedience to God –
                Perfect adherence to the will of God,
                    in love –

                Dignity!!

                Jesus is born in Bethlehem –

                The census brings them to Bethlehem
                    Jesus comes from the house of David!

                The animals adore the Lord –

                The Shepherds –

                Jesus sleeps on hay

                The angels sing –

                The Presentation in the Temple –
                    Simeon tells Mary of the
                        sufferings to come –

                Jesus shows His wisdom in the
                    temple –
                    He tells us He must be about
                        His Father's business,
                    but He goes down and is obedient
                        to Mary and Joseph.

                A sign for us about His Divinity.

                We see the Marriage at Cana as
                    the beginning of His public life.

                And we see Jesus call the Apostles,
                    work in this community,
                    eat with them, sleep with
                    them, spend time with them,
                    working miracles, teaching
                    them –
                    What a gift He taught
                        them for 3 years to be
                        able to see God's Plan
                        for us and we live
                        by His teachings today!

                Jesus is the way, the truth and the life!!

                We see a sign of His glory in the
                    Transfiguration –
                    Here He shows the 3 apostles
                    who will be sleeping in the
                    garden –
                    a sign of His glory –

                And the Father speaks
                    "This is My beloved Son, in
                        whom I am well pleased,
                        Listen to Him"

                The Father says now –
                    Listen to Him –

                After so many teachings – the
                    Father tells us to listen to
                    Jesus –

                We have the Last Supper –
                    the Apostles are gathered
                    and Jesus teaches them –
                    "Do this in remembrance of
                    Me"

                Jesus gives us His Body and His Blood
                    to eat and drink – 

 

                R. Jesus is God –

                He did the Father's will –

                He allowed Himself to be apprehended

 

Excerpt from May 9, 1995 Rosary

The Agony in the Garden

1. Jesus: My dear ones, you do not understand how I suffered in the Garden such intense agony to My Most Sacred Heart for the precious souls. Each and every soul I love with the deepest love, I gave My life for you.     end of excerpt
 

                R. He knew in the garden all the
                    sins of men and the ages to
                    come of disobedience and
                    the souls that would be
                    lost and

                He suffered for us to help us
                    in our role today in
                    salvation history!

                Jesus enlists our help!

                Jesus wants us to focus on
                    the heavenly Father's
                    vision, His Plan

                Not see ourselves as needing recognition
                    from the world –
                    but focused on God's vision and
                    our plan in salvation history.

                He gives us our bodies here to help us
                    do it. Our bodies are not the
                    end – It is to purify our hearts,
                    to advance in the spiritual
                    life - to be more and more in
                    the image of Jesus.

Excerpt from May 9, 1995 Rosary

Scourging at the Pillar

8. Jesus: Pray for healing and for grace to rid yourself of any debris in your heart that keeps you from union with Me. Any person that you hold a grudge against, any anger or resentment on your part that you harbor in your heart, will keep you from union with My Heart. My Heart is a Heart of Love. You cannot unite closely to My Heart when your heart is angry. Pray for the grace to let go of any anger, resentment, unkindness that you have toward any man.        end of excerpt
   

                R. They whipped Jesus' body – He
                    suffered lacerations for
                    our sins – beatings to His
                    body for our pride and envy and
                    jealousy and anger and slothfulness. 

 

                Given November 10, 2013

                R. Do you know how tender is your
                    head - with hair –
                    a pin prick in the head
                    is so painful –
                    pulling the hair –

                What about nerve endings,
                    What about a small paper cut –
                    a cut in ones chapped hands
                        by the fingernail –

                Blood is right behind the open
                    cut –
                    There is such a gift in
                    sensitivity behind the skin –

                The face is our precious gift –

                If someone does anything to the
                    head, the face, it is so
                    offensive to us –
                    In our face is our eyes –
                    In our face is our mouth –
                    In our face is our smelling –
                    In our head is our ears –

                Behind the head of hair we
                    find the brain –

                We use our face to show
                    ourselves to others –
                    We take pictures of our face –

                We can smile with our face
                    to the world –

                We can cry and see and show emotions
                    with our eyes –

                Our head is so important –

                Christ allowed His head to be
                    crowned by human men –

                Christ allowed them to pound
                    thorns into His skull –

                Christ was whipped on His eyes –
                    punched and kicked in His
                    Head and face –

                Christ was bloodied in His mouth –
                    teeth going through His lip –

                Bloodied nose –

                Lacerated face

                Christ suffered to His face
                    and head for love of us –

                Christ gave His all to us –

                Now He gives us His Body
                    and Blood in the Mass –

                Christ loves us so much –
                Christ wants us with Him
                    in heaven –

                We have a wounded human nature –

                Christ is showing us we
                    must recognize our
                    fallen human nature –
                    and be converted –

                Pride keeps us from this –
                Jealousy keeps us from this –
                Anger keeps us from this –
                Envy keeps us from this –
                Slothfulness keeps us from this –

                What a price Christ paid for
                    our sins of pride, envy,
                    anger, slothfulness, greed –

                Jesus loves us –
                    to His death on the cross
                    He loves us –

                He is the teacher –

                He teaches us about love –
                He teaches us about Himself –
                He teaches us about doing the
                    Father's will –

                God commands us to love
 

Matthew 22: 36-40

'Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?' Jesus said to him, 'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.'

 

                R. God is love –

                We were created in God's
                    image and likeness
 

Genesis 1: 26-27

God said, ‘Let us make man in our own image, in the likeness of ourselves, and let them be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all the wild animals and all the creatures that creep along the ground.’

God created man in the image of himself,
    in the image of God he created him,
    male and female he created them.

 

                Song: Give Me Your Heart Oh Jesus

                end of excerpt

   

                November 11, 2013 continues

                R. Jesus was crowned for our pride,
                    our anger, our jealousies and
                    envy –

                Jesus suffered Blood to His
                    eyes for our mistakes
                    in worldly, jealous
                    prideful eyes!

 

Excerpts from May 9, 1995 Rosary

Crowning with Thorns

1. Jesus: You do not know how important your prayers and sacrifices are for souls. There are souls that are on their way to eternal damnation, souls that will die this evening and will be condemned forever and ever to the fires in hell. My children, how I love each precious soul. How important your life is, every action that you perform offered to the Father in union with the Mass.

3. Jesus: I give to man a free will. This is love. Heaven is a reward promised to those this day.

6. Jesus: I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. I came to show you the way. It is in meditating on these mysteries of the rosary that you will be drawn ever closer to My Heart.

7. Jesus: This rosary is My gift to you, My beloved ones, given from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I want to be close to you. I outpour to you My abundant love. I love you! I love you! I love you!

8. Jesus: Let go of all pride in your heart. Come to Me with a heart of a child, pure and kind. Let go! Your life is so short. Here today - gone tomorrow. Love, Love, Love.

 

Carrying of the Cross

8. Jesus: As I walked every step of the way with the cross on My back My thoughts were of you. I fell under the weight of the cross. How I love you. To My death on the cross I loved you. I am telling you from My burning Heart on fire for love of you.

Stations of the Cross

February 22, 1995

1. Jesus Is Condemned to Death 

Jesus:  My dear child, with angry hearts and hatred on their faces, they poked at Me and condemned Me to death. I stood so silent, My hands tied, in perfect peace, because I knew the Father's love. I knew the Father's Will. You too will stand your trials in perfect peace, the more you realize the immense love the Father, Son and Holy Spirit have for you. Pray to the Spirit to transform you more and more into My image and, through this transformation, you will be led ever closer to the Father. Oh, how I love you!

  

2. They Give Jesus the Cross

Jesus:  They gave Me a heavy cross, laden with the sins of the world. They placed it on My shoulder. It was so heavy I felt as if My shoulder would break. I ask you to carry little crosses, to experience little pains. I could not remove this cross from My shoulder. The weight was unbearable. It is through My suffering and death that you receive new life. It is through your sufferings this day that you will grow in your life with Me. Oh, child, I loved you so much that I took up the cross of salvation. I love you. Please realize that I am talking to you here. To My death I loved you. Oh, how I love you!
 

3. Jesus Falls the First Time

Jesus: The cross was so heavy I could hardly walk. I held on to My cross for greatest love of you and in compliance with the Will of My Father. It became so hard to walk! The cross was so heavy! I fell. I fell and the cross fell on Me. They poked at Me, they struck Me, they demanded I get up. The pain from the instruments they used to poke Me and strike Me was so great! I somehow managed to get up.

When you fall under the weight of your cross, come to My Eucharistic Heart. I am no less present in the tabernacle and in the Eucharist than on the day I carried My cross. I wait with the same love that I had for you when I carried this cross and suffered such agony. Oh, how I love you!

  

4. Jesus and Mary Meet

Jesus: I saw the face of My beautiful Mother. She was weak, her face reddened and full of tears. I saw her tender heart, her love, her anguish, her pain. I saw My dear Mother Mary. My Heart was comforted by the sight of her, but torn by her suffering.

Mary: As I looked into the eyes of my beloved Son, I saw His love. His head, bleeding and wounded. His body weak. His clothes covered with blood. I looked into His eyes and I saw His love for you. I call out to you today. I appear today with a face full of anguish and tears. I appear to call you back to the love of my Son. See through my eyes, as I peer into His eyes, the love He has for you this day to give of Himself for you. Oh, He loves you so much, my little children. See through my eyes the love of my Son. Oh, how He loves you!
  

5. Simon of Cyrene Is Forced to Help Jesus Carry His Cross

Jesus: The cross was so heavy I could not move. My persecutors became angry and forced a man to help Me. The cross was so heavy the two of us could barely move it. How is your cross today? Does it seem so heavy you cannot go on? I am forever watching you. When you are suffering the greatest, I am very close to you. It is in immense suffering that you realize My great love for you. Pray for grace to do always the Father's Will. Pray for grace to grow in your knowledge and love of Me.

6. Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus

Jesus: My face was covered with blood. From the crowd Veronica came forward with a cloth to wipe My face. On the cloth I gave to you an imprint of My bloodied face. This, My children, remains with you this day as a sign of My immense love for you. But more than any cloth, look beyond the visible consecrated host. I, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, remain with you, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, in the Eucharist this day, waiting and longing to be with you. Oh, how I love you!
  

7. Jesus Falls the Second Time

Jesus: Oh, dear ones, the road became harder and harder to walk. The cross was becoming heavier, My body weaker and weaker. My shoulders and arms hurt so much! My head throbbed as I walked. The blood came from My body, from My head to My feet. I was covered with open wounds. I could not go any farther. I stumbled and fell. Again they poked at Me, only harder, and with such hatred they kicked Me. Such vileness in the hearts of men! My greatest agony was not the agonies of My body, but the agonies of My heart for the love I have for all My precious souls. I loved them so dearly. I loved those who persecuted Me. Oh, how I love you!
  

8. Jesus Meets the Women of Jerusalem

Jesus: The women came to Me with their children, their tender hearts crying and wanting to comfort Me. I saw their love, their care. I saw the coldness of men's hearts for all time, the hatred, the anger, the sins, all the souls that, despite all of My sufferings and death, would be condemned to eternal damnation. I told the women to weep not for Me, but for themselves and their children. My greatest agonies were the agonies of My Most Sacred Heart. Oh, how I love you!
  

9. Jesus Falls the Third Time

Jesus: I fell hard the third time. I was so weakened I could not go on. My body collapsed under the cross from such exhaustion! My child, My child, My greatest agonies were not the wounds to the body. They were the wounds I experienced to My heart. Do you know a little more now how I love you? It is in meditating on My Passion and death that you will realize My immense love for you. When you fall, when you struggle, I give you the grace to get up. I never give you more than you can handle. Your strength will come from Me. Come to My Eucharistic Heart. I am waiting for you this day. Oh, how I love you!

10. Jesus Is Stripped of His Garments

Jesus: They took Me to the hill to crucify Me. They angrily stripped Me of My garments. They took off My clothes to whip Me. They had covered My bloody wounds with a dirty purple robe. Now, total surrender-they took off My clothes. I showed you the way to surrender, always complying with the Will of the Father. It is in living in His Will that you will have peace and joy, and life eternal some day. Oh, how I love you!

  

 

11. They Nail Him to the Cross

R. See Mary as she holds the little Baby Jesus. See her as she washes His tender hands and feet. See her now as she watches as they pound into those same hands and feet the gigantic nails that fix Jesus to the cross.

Mary:
Oh, my dear ones, my heart was torn in my chest as they nailed His hands and feet to the cross. I ask you this day to walk the Passion with me and see through my eyes the love He has for you. He truly was nailed to the cross.

Jesus:
They pounded the nails into My first hand, then they stretched My body and nailed My other hand. The blood poured from these wounds that went totally through My hands. My pain was so immense, but then they nailed My feet! You do not know what pain I suffered, My child. My children, My children, for each one of you I suffered this pain. Oh, how I loved you!

 

12. Jesus Dies on the Cross

(Silence.)

R.
He hung for three agonizing hours on the cross against the darkened sky. His greatest agonies were not the agonies of His body, but those of His Heart for the great love He has for each and every soul.

Jesus:
I gave Myself to you, My dear ones. I gave My all. I hung with My arms spread in total surrender. My head was punctured; My hands and feet were nailed to the cross. I gave Myself to you. I give Myself to you this day in the Eucharist. I give Myself to you. I, God, give you Myself! What more do you want?

Song:
Oh, burning Heart, oh, Love divine, etc.

R.
They pierced His Heart with a lance and what flowed forth was blood and water, the sacramental life of the Church, water for Baptism and blood for the Eucharist. His life, death and resurrection live on in the Church this day.
  

13. Jesus Is Taken Down from the Cross and Placed in the Arms of His Mother

R. His totally lifeless body was placed in the arms of His most loving Mother. As she had held the little baby body in her arms, she now received His bloodied, bruised body in her arms. This is how He obeyed the Father's Will. Jesus gave His life for us. The Father gave His only Son because He loves us so much. Mary, His Mother, our Mother and the Mother of the Church, is forever by His side. See Jesus in the arms of His loving Mother under the cross. This is love.

Mary:
I held His lifeless body in my arms. See through my eyes the love He has for you this day. He gives Himself to you today in the Eucharist. He loves you so much!

 

14. Jesus Is Locked in the Tomb

R. His enemies rolled the stone up to the tomb and were pleased to have buried Jesus. Mary, outside the tomb, wept bitterly. The cold reality that He was dead! But death has no power over Jesus for on the third day He rose, triumphant, from the tomb! We are partakers in His divine life. Death has no power over Jesus. He is with us this day. He comes to bring us life to the full. He loves us so much!

 

   

                Excerpt from May 9, 1995 Rosary

Crucifixion

8. Jesus: I gave Myself for love of you. What more do you want? I give Myself to you this day, truly present in the Eucharist. I give you Myself. Do you feel My presence when you receive Me in communion? I am God. I come to you.

9. Jesus: I give you a sharing in My life in Baptism. I nurture this life by giving you Myself in the Eucharist.

end of excerpt
 

                Sing: I Am the Bread of Life

                R. Jesus rose triumphant on the 3rd
                    day –

                We see the men guarding His
                    tomb with a big rock –

                Death has no power over Jesus!

                Jesus appeared when I received this.

 

Excerpt from May 1, 1995 Rosary

Meditation at end of Rosary

Jesus: I am Jesus, your Beloved Savior, and I call each one of you to closer union with Me - I give you My Sacred Heart. Come to My Heart and know the immensity of My love. For every word that I speak to you comes from the tender love within My Heart. As you read each letter, read each word as My love given to you, My precious ones. You take My letters so lightly when they are proclamations of the immensity of the love that I have for you. I ask you this day to begin reading your letters with such openness in your heart that you hear every word that I speak to you, for I am a person, and I am one with you, My little ones. My love I pour out and you do not hear. You do not take me seriously. Each word, I, Jesus Christ, say to you. My sweet, loved ones, tender love I have for you. You keep us apart by the way you read My letters. Read them as letters of My burning love. Each word I say to you.

R. This rosary was prayed before Jesus in the Tabernacle and Mary in Our Mother of Sorrows statue in Our Mother of Sorrows Chapel. Rita, Cathy, Joe, Margaret Mary, the Dodds, Marty and one other person were present.

Excerpt from May 14, 1995 Rosary

The Resurrection

5. R. They rolled the stone up to the tomb to secure Jesus, but death has no power over Jesus. On the third day He rose victorious! He is the Almighty God! Jesus was bound. He was tied. He was whipped. He was nailed to a cross. So silly, you say to tie God to a pillar and nail Him to a cross! Death has no power over Jesus!

6. R. Our lives are a constant death-resurrection. As we struggle, as we die to our imperfections, we are more and more perfected likened to Jesus.

7. Song: Choose Life

8. R. Jesus gave to the apostles the power to baptize and to forgive sins. It is through His pierced Heart that the sacramental life of the Church was born.

9. R. Jesus instituted the Church.

10. R. How favored we are that God so loved this world that He sent His only begotten Son into this world that we might be saved!

end of excerpt

 

Acts 1: 6-9

Now having met together, they asked him, 'Lord, has the time come for you to restore the kingdom to Israel?' He replied, 'It is not for you to know times or dates that the Father has decided by his own authority, but you will receive the power of the Holy Spirit which will come on you, and then you will be my witnesses not only in Jerusalem but throughout Judaea and Samaria, and indeed to earth's remotest end.'

As he said this he was lifted up while they looked on, and a cloud took him from their sight.

  
 

Excerpt from May 14, 1995 Rosary

The Ascension

5. R. Jesus is waiting and waiting. The indifference, neglect and sacrileges committed against Him in the Blessed Sacrament wounded His aching Heart. Jesus loves His precious souls to come. The Eucharist is the sacrament of His greatest love. Jesus remains in His Divinity and humanity. Jesus showers His abundant grace on His precious souls.

6. R. Outpour your precious life on us. We long to be saturated with your life, to be one in You. As we sit here in front of the Tabernacle, let us know Your presence, for You are no less present in this room than the day You walked on the earth. We beg You for Your precious grace, Your precious life to fill us.

7. R. Jesus gives us a sharing in His life in baptism. In Baptism, He elevates our knowing and loving capacity.

Song: I Am the Bread of Life

8. R. Jesus asks us to help make reparation to Him by sitting in front of the Tabernacle. To make reparation for the souls that treat Him with neglect and indifference. His Heart was wounded and He longs and thirsts and waits and waits and waits for souls to come.

end of excerpt

 

               R. Come Holy Spirit to me, I want to
                    know about God. Give me
                    vision, please dear God!

 

Acts 2: 1-4

When Pentecost day came round, they had all met together, when suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a violent wind which filled the entire house in which they were sitting; and there appeared to them tongues as of fire; these separated and came to rest on the head of each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak different languages as the Spirit gave them power to express themselves.

   

Excerpts from May 14, 1995 Rosary

Descent of the Holy Spirit

3. R. They were transformed from fear to fearlessness. It is in Baptism that we are commissioned to go out and spread the Good News to the world. Come Holy Spirit! Fill us with Your grace so that we will be transformed from fear to fearlessness to carry out the Plan of the Father, to be His apostles, to go into this world and do the work He is calling us to do. We beg You for the fearlessness to do what You have planned for us to do. The apostles were fearless, they went out and preached, so many were converted, we at this Center are called here by Jesus and Mary to be part of the Plan of the Father. Give us the courage, give us whatever we need to be able to carry out the Plan of the Father.

4. R. We are Your little children, dependent upon You, dear Father. We ask You, through the Holy Spirit, to make Your Plan known to us so that we may carry out the work that Jesus came to this world to start. Help us to go into the world and to carry out His life, death and resurrection in our lives.

5. R. Let us feel the fire, the vibrancy inside of us, the fire of God's love. Dear Spirit, please live in us, so we may be filled up with such vibrancy to carry out this great message of the love of God, so we may be strengthened against anything the devil puts in our path to try to keep us from completing the work You have sent us here to do. As the apostles went out with fearlessness and so many were converted, help us to follow the Plan of the Father with fearlessness through the Holy Spirit and do exactly what You intended us to do.

6. R. Let Your life saturate our being that we are more one in You. Fill us with Your life, saturate us so that the life, the light that is within us is too mighty to be contained.

7. Jesus: You, at the Center, are My City set on a Hill that will shine to this world. I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. I fill you with My grace so that you may go into this world and shine as beacon lights into the darkness. My beloved ones, I lead you on your way. Feel this vibrancy within you. I love you with Divine Love. You are My special missionaries that I am sending into the world to light up the world with the love of God.

8. Jesus: May the fire of My Sacred Heart burn ever brighter in your hearts. May it radiate from your being. May you be a light on every path that you walk. May you know more and more My dear Mother, forever by your side, guiding you and protecting you with her mantle. As you walk your path, you are guided, you are protected, you are loved. My beloved ones, you are My lights that will shine to this world.

9. Song: Come Holy Ghost

10. Jesus: I want hearts that are filled with fire for love of Me for I remain a prisoner in the Tabernacle waiting the love of My precious souls. You are My lights that I send into the darkened world. Come to Me and I will fill you with My grace and you will light up the dark world. You are the City set on a Hill that will shine to this world. Pray to the Spirit, My beloved ones, pray to the Spirit to come more and more to this Center.

(Song between decades: Come Holy Spirit ...)

Jesus: I have not forgotten you. I remain forever by your side. I have carved you in My Most Sacred Heart. Your name is written there. Let go and surrender for I am so close to you and guarding you and protecting you. I am Jesus. How I dearly love you. Do not be glum for I give to you My grace. I give to you My light to light the world. Focus always on Me. Do not look to others to fill you, for your happiness, happiness is in Me. Focus on My Heart burning, on fire for love of you, My precious ones. I am so near to you.

 

The Assumption of Mary into Heaven

1. Jesus: Do not be glum for I am so close to you and I lead you on your way. Surrender and trust! This is the Plan of the Father. It is unfolding here in this Center. Put your trust in My Most Sacred Heart for I love you with the deepest, deepest love.

2. R. Mary was taken, body and soul, into Heaven. Mary remained on the earth some twenty years after Jesus' death. She remained with the apostles. She was here to help the beginning of the Church. Mary is Mother of the Church this day. Mary mothers us as we carry out His life, death and resurrection in our daily lives. We are commissioned in Baptism to carry out the work that Jesus began when He walked the earth. Jesus no longer walks the earth this day but He remains with us truly present in the Eucharist.

3. R. Mary, place us securely under your mantle. Lead us on our journey to the Heart of Jesus. Help us more and more to be holy. Mary knows the Heart of her Son. Mold us and shape us in Your Heart through the power of the Holy Spirit. Dear Holy Spirit, transform us in the heart of Mary into the image and likeness of Jesus and lead us closer to the bosom of the Father.

4. R. Mary remains with us forever by our side. As she walked by the side of Jesus all through His life and His Passion, as she stood under the cross and watched her Son suffer and die, she stands by our side and watches us on our way, on our journey as we grow in this graced life of Christ.

5. R. Jesus came to this earth, He died and rose that we might have the sharing in His life. Jesus is with us this day, filling us more and more with His life, the vibrancy of His life within us.

6. Sing: Refrain Bread of Life

7. R. How Jesus loves His Mother. How the Father loves Mary that from all women He chose Mary to be the Mother of God! He chose Mary, a woman, to be the way that He brought His Son into this world. What dignity and honor He gives to all women that He chose Mary to be the Mother of God! Jesus gave to us His Beloved Mother to protect us and lead us ever closer to Him on our journey to Heaven

8. R. How present she is with us this day, our Beloved Mother, mothering us constantly as she mothered Jesus. Mary is here to lead us closer to the Heart of her beloved Son.

9. R. The Father so loved Mary that He made Mary the Mother of God! Mary is so close to Jesus, she is the Spouse of the Holy Spirit. Mary is the singular vessel. Mary leads us to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

10. R. Mary leads us in this graced-filled life to our true home in Heaven.

Song: Choose Life

 

Mary is Crowned as Queen of Heaven and Earth

1. R. Mary was crowned as Queen of Heaven and Earth. She was given a golden crown. How the Father loves Mary! How Jesus loves His Mother! Mary is the Spouse of the Holy Spirit.

2. R. Our bodies will be glorified and taken into Heaven if we go to heaven, someday.

3. Jesus: I have chosen this Center to light this darkened world. You are My specially chosen ones to carry out the message of My life. Will you say yes to the call? On this Mother's Day, Mary is calling out to you to come to the Center with hearts that are pure and filled with love. Only pure hearts can unite with My Heart. A heart that is haughty cannot unite with a heart of pure love.

4. Song: Immaculate Mary

Jesus: You are the beacon lights that I will send into this world to light the darkened world. You have been called by My Mother to My Mother's House. Will you answer the call with your whole heart to put aside any of the debris that is in your heart and trade it for hearts that are pure? You are My apostles, you are My chosen ones, you I love.

5. Song: Choose Life

6. Jesus: This is My Mother's House. Mary is present in this house in a special way. I am Jesus. I send you as the lights to light the darkness. Mary is appearing to you as Our Lady of Light. I am illuminated and on fire for love of you. The Holy Spirit will come to this Center and will fill the hearts with the fire of God's love. Pray, pray, pray for the Spirit to come to you.

7. Jesus: The Plan of the Father is unfolding. You are the threads in this tapestry. You, I send into this world. You will receive an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Pray, pray, pray! Baptize men in the Holy Spirit. Get all to pray daily to the Holy Spirit, for He will transform the hearts that are filled with fear to fearlessness. He will sanctify their hearts and make them whole. I am Jesus. I remain with you in the Tabernacle waiting and longing for your precious love. I will fill your hearts with the fire of My love and the Father will be with you, My beloved ones, the more you unite to Me. Come and be one in Me. Pray for union. Heaven is given to those who love and serve the Lord!

8. Song: Come Holy Spirit

9. Song: See the Eyes that Look at Mary

10. Song: A Song from Jesus

Song: I Love You Jesus

Jesus: And the Holy Spirit will come to fervent hearts at the Center and the hearts will be turned to hearts on fire for the love of Jesus Christ through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Pray, My beloved ones, pray for all those involved in this Center. Pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Pray a novena for the Holy Spirit to come to this Center, have all fervently praying this novena. I am Jesus. I come to you this day. I gave My life for love of you. You are a City set on a Hill that will shine its light to the darkened world. My beloved ones, will you answer the call of My Mother to pray fervently to the Spirit for this?

 

This rosary was prayed in the Mother of Sorrows Chapel before Jesus in the Tabernacle and Mary in Our Mother of Sorrows statue. Rita, Cathy, Joe, Pat and Marty were present.

Rita stated that Mary was brilliantly illuminated - all in white - alive in the statue - bigger than the statue. Jesus, in the large Sacred Heart picture, was also illuminated.

                Sing: Eye Has Not Seen

 

                Second Message

                R. Beatific Vision 

Proverbs 16: 2

A person's own acts seem right to the doer, but Yahweh is the weigher of souls.
 

                R. Faded dreams of man

                Ingratitude

                Seeing through the eyes of the wounded
                    human nature

                Rebellion of the soul wanting their way
                    opposed to God's will.

                We reach for the beatific vision
                    some day –

                To be possessed by God!

                We see God as the source –
                We see through the vision of God

                Not the vision of the wounded human nature –
                Not through the vision of the world –

                We grasp the TRUTH

                We seek reality as it really is –
                    in God –
                    in His Plan for us –

                When we see our mind as the source
                    we are stuck!

                We must reach and see through the
                    eyes of God –

                God is the source –

                We feebly justify why we are
                    so knowledgeable –
                    We must seek to know
                    in sharing abundantly in Him –
                    seek to know through the mind
                    of God –

                Pride says
                    "I'm so smart" "Smarter than you"
                    Envy says "you can't know
                        more than me or I want
                        to bring you down"

                Purity
                    seeks the mind and Heart of God

                God is the source –

                A world in our mind without God
                    is not as it should be

                Reality is in God –

                God is all perfect –

                When we look for ourselves as
                    the truth –
                    We cut ourselves off
                    God is truth –

                We can make up our world with
                    us at the top – in jealousy
                    of the others God created –

                This is not humility –

                We see ourselves as deficient and
                    the world making us better –

                We are wounded and so are our
                    brothers and we work as one
                    in building His Kingdom –
                    trying to be more as He wants
                    us to be –

                It is blindness to try to convince
                    men of our greatness for
                    our own vain glory –

                Be about doing His work while
                    we are here –
                    not trying to make ourselves
                    great in the eyes of the world.

                We are searching to know God
                    more and more

                God is truth and the source
                    of truth –

                God is the source –

                We study God –
                We study His ways –
                We study creation –
                We seek Him –
                We love Him –

                We are little ones – eager for
                    His truth –

                We need to put the truth out there
                    for men lost in darkness –

                To know the truth –
                To feel at home in the truth –
                We are at home living in His truth –

                Not strangers –
                Not writing our own books –

                We act on what we believe as
                    truth –

                If what we believe is truth
                    is in fact false – we just keep
                    making mistakes –

                Living to make ourselves the source
                    of our truth is a big
                    mistake if our lives are not
                    rooted in God, but ourselves!!

                We see beauty – only in truth –

                What is beautiful is rooted in God –

                Man sinned –

                Man brought disease and darkness
                    into his life by serving
                    satan –

                God is the ultimate mystery –
                    We are to seek Him

   

Excerpt from Response to God's Love by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

    ... In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

    The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ.

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

$ 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
