Mark 6: 1-6  

Leaving that district, he went to his home town, and his disciples accompanied him. With the coming of the Sabbath he began teaching in the synagogue, and most of them were astonished when they heard him. They said, 'Where did the man get all this? What is this wisdom that has been granted him, and these miracles that are worked through him? This is the carpenter, surely, the son of Mary, the brother of James and Joset and Jude and Simon? His sisters, too, are they not here with us?' And they would not accept him. And Jesus said to them, 'A prophet is despised only in his own country, among his own relations and in his own house'; and he could work no miracle there, except that he cured a few sick people by laying his hands on them. He was amazed at their lack of faith. He made a tour round the villages, teaching.

   

                R. A prophet is one who speaks out for God —

 

                Psalm Response: Lord, forgive the wrong I have done. 

Psalm 32: 1-2, 5-7

How blessed are those whose offence is forgiven,
   whose sin is blotted out.
How blessed are those to whom Yahweh imputes no guilt,
   whose spirit harbours no deceit.

I made my sin known to you,
   did not conceal my guilt.
I said, 'I shall confess
   my offence to Yahweh.'
And you, for your part, took away my guilt,
   forgave my sin.                                                        Pause

That is why each of your faithful ones prays to you
    in time of distress.
Even if great floods overflow,
    they will never reach your faithful.
You are a refuge for me,
    you guard me in trouble,
with songs of deliverance you surround me.                   Pause

   

                R. We are to honor the dignity of human life —

                We are to speak out for God.

   

The Our Father

    Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

   

                R. Lord You have shown us justice to all the nations —
                God send Your saving power to us —
                Oh God we glorify You —
                Oh God grant us Your mercy —

                Jesus: I came into this world naked —

   

January 5, 1997

R. On January 5, 1997, I was wakened by Our Lord and He was mumbling as He was around my bed. I heard Him and He repeated the words over and over again. He was speaking very plainly and direct. He kept repeating "BABY, BARE BABY, LAID BARE".

Jesus:  Open yourself, Oh Jerusalem, your time is come you will be a light to the people in darkness, many will walk whence you come and the earth will be shakened and the light will come across a dark sky and enlighten their minds.

Oh stiff-necked people, you are so stiff in your ways, let the spirit envelope you and lead you on your way.

A country of stiffs, a people of planning and prodding, of deliberating and wondering—you lack faith, Jerusalem, you lack faith in God.

Oh walk naked into the cold night, you are cold in your hearts and naked in your clothing—I cloth you with glory, I light your face with light, but you turn your cheeks to the darkness and stay stiff-necked in your hearts. Oh cold and dark hearts, reach for the light that you may know the glory that awaits the sinners and enlightens their minds.

end of excerpt

   

                R. Jesus, the Divine God, came naked, as a little baby
                    clothed in flesh into this world —

                Jesus, You changed the world and we will never be the same.

                Oh God help us to speak for You —

                Spread the Blue Books — Jesus' letters of love —

                    We are the mailmen - sending His letters of love to the world —
                    We want to be faith-filled —

                The Lord gave - He made us and
                The Lord will take us when He wants —
                How foolish of ourselves to try to control God —

                The Plan is His. We are all vulnerable. We have been
                    given so many good things from God —

                Why do we give into rebellion against a good God —
                Why do we give into the temptations of evil —

                Incline my heart, oh God, to do Your will —
                Incline my heart, oh God, to seek Your will —
                    to live life according to Your will —

     

Luke 4: 18-19

    The spirit of the Lord is on me, 
    for he has anointed me 
    to bring the good news to the afflicted. 
    He has sent me 
        to proclaim liberty to captives, 
    sight to the blind, 
    to let the oppressed go free, 
    to proclaim a year of favour 
        from the Lord. 

    

                R. Rejoice Jesus comes to rule the earth —
                    with justice and right —

                Oh God set us free from those who wish
                    to harm us and keep us from your
                    work —

                You are a mighty Savior, Oh God —
                Oh God set us free from our enemies —

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

                Let the waters of this earth flow on the land and cleanse
                    it of its poisons —
                    For He came to set us free and man in his
                        stubbornness has rebelled against a good
                        and just God —

                Cleanse us from our sins, Oh God —

                Help us to keep Your laws and obey Your precepts —
                Lest we fall into a pit of destruction when You
                    have so richly blessed us with every good
                    thing —

                Show me Lord, the path of life, that I may walk
                    and follow Thee, my God —

                I will praise You, Oh my God —
                I will worship You in Your holy house —

                Let me never be put to shame —
                Let my heart be one with my God who made
                    heaven and earth —

                Let me love and glorify Your name, Oh God, my God
                    forever, I sing Your praises,
                    I worship You in the vast assembly —

                I turned not my face from You, but my eyes
                    beheld Your preciousness —
                    that I may always glory in the Lord —
                    this is my delight and my prayer —

                Tender as a shoot of grass coming on this earth —
                    you chose me to come here and knit me in
                    my mother's womb —
                    you called me from there to raise up and speak
                        of You before others and write Your letters
                        of love for the assembly —
                    To boast of the power of the rosary —
                    To teach of the gift of the Mass —
                    To tell men of the gifts of the sacraments and
                        to love Your gift given to us in the priest
                        and Church —

                Song: A Priest is a Gift from God

                R. When night comes upon us, we light lights to see,
                    but with this darkness covering our earth
                    and the murder of babies —
                    we go to You God and
                    we are filled by You —

                    You are the Light of the World and
                    We are washed clean by confession and
                        admitting our sins —

                    Oh God - we pray that - as the last gong in
                        the days of our lives - we will not be
                        caught in sin that could keep us
                        from Your everlasting reward of
                        eternal happiness —

                Oh God, wash the stain of sin from our souls
                    in Your gift of confession —
                    as we attend Mass, those venial sins, washed
                    away, so we can come purely and worship You —

                    Oh love of my life —
                    Oh love Divine —
                    Oh God, Our Father —
                    Oh Jesus, Our brother —
                    Oh Holy Spirit - fill us now with Yourself,
                        with Your love —

                Help us not to offend You with sinfulness,
                    but to see ourselves as babies
                    being formed in this life, more and more
                    in the image and likeness of our God —

                Wash away our inequities, Oh God and
                Cleanse us of our sins —

                Let the darkness of sin that hovers over our land be
                    lifted so the, rays of the sun will be seen
                    by day and the radiance of the moon and star-
                    studded nights make the darkness a time of
                    beauty and not distress for men —

                Wash away our sins, Oh God and
                Lead us not into temptation —

                Beauty knocks on the door of our hearts and
                Satan comes to steal its gentleness with the
                    thunder of dark fury of envies and
                    jealousies of sin — the pride that comes
                    like a cold hand on a warm neck — stealing
                    the warmth with its clammy coldness —

                Satan comes and attacks —
                He does not obey God's rules —
                He tries to usurp power and control to
                    win over good -

                His way is argumentation, seeking power
                    and the passive-aggressive sneak
                    around in secret like a snake to get the
                    just man when he least expects
                    the attack —

                In World War I men lurked in holes - hiding attacks —
                    satan knows no bounds, does not obey
                    God, wants no rules, wants power-over,
                    wants men envious and jealous of his brother and
                    can press in slothfulness as a man looking
                    like a sleeping toad — only to see the
                    path he made to utter destruction —
                    weaving a web of untrustworthiness
                    and unpredictableness hidden from
                    those who fell down and were skinned
                    in their knees like Christ who suffered
                    so at the hands of the evil men who
                    beat Him and made Him carry the cross —

                Jesus: Rise up Jerusalem, I am Jesus, your Savior and
                    I read the hearts of men —
                    the white washed tombs of those
                        deceiving others by their masks
                        are laden inside with tar in
                        their hearts,

                But in the end - their days of deception
                    were not a victory for their futile
                    efforts slung against their brothers
                    they were commanded to love —

                When given the beauty of the sun and
                    the love of friends —
                    they plotted evils in their bed and
                        caught them in their webs of
                        destruction,
                    but in the end, the just man, though
                        he suffers still wins when his life
                        is lived in doing the Father's will
                        in love —

                The men with evil in their hearts, unrelented
                    and unaccountable for their sins, hurts
                    themselves and condemns themselves for
                    their evil hearts —

                Life is not life if it is not rooted in Me —

                A man is in the company of himself — all
                    day and all night —
                    so he can choose love and life and joy and
                    obedience to His Father's Plan or
                    He can choose to do the work of satan,
                        not loving, being disharmonious,
                        isolated and cunning —
                    The fool puts out a wash tub to catch a
                        fish - for he cannot control
                        it like the man with a baited line —

                But in the reasoning of he who puts a
                    big wash bucket out for fish —
                    he makes a clumsy attempt and
                    may fall in after he throws the
                    big bucket in —
                    The thinking of a man attuned to evil
                        and practicing it, has habits that
                        are vices —
                        and like Saul his eyes are crusted
                            over —

                But a man seeking virtue, praying for
                    greater faith, hope and love is developing
                    habits that lead him to victory.
                    A man had very bad vision and he
                        didn't want anyone to know
                        so he hid it —
                        His life was lived like this —
                            hiding and deceiving and pretty
                            soon he forgot what the
                            truth really was from all
                            his deceptions —

                A man living to be right all the time is
                    wrong for you are imperfect human
                    creatures,

                But one who wants no one over him sees
                    with these eyes as his goal —
                    Always over —
                    Always in control —
                    Always winning —

                A big elephant came in and went in the
                    living room — the man with tainted
                    vision never saw it —

                He was too busy living his rules of
                    always doing what he wanted at
                    all costs and being right.

                If the elephant sat on a small child
                    in the living room - he wouldn't
                    see it, because he was caved in
                    on battling to win in a world
                    that needed to know — he was
                    never wrong — he shaped his whole
                    existence on this false premise —

                Would he listen to anyone?

                The devil wants to keep moving ahead isolating
                    a soul —
                    Soon they have fewer and fewer friends
                        because of how they act —
                    Then their dysfunction becomes
                        bigger and bigger as they battle
                        to rule for themselves —
                    Like Absalom - he was fighting
                        the Father's plan when David
                        had been anointed by God —

                But satan works through others —
                    so their is strength in numbers
                        he plans - in evil —
                    A legion of devils all trying to
                        prove what's wrong is right and
                        what's right is wrong —

                Hell is full of souls who lived to
                    prove their mortal sins were
                    okay - and when a spiritual
                    person tried to live by My rules —
                    they tried to change the laws
                    to make their evil a law —
                    And satan sent more devils
                    so a legion could work to
                    force their evil plotting —

                That is how laws are changed —

                Those forcing out just laws with the
                    energy coming from angry,
                    jealous hearts, seeking to be
                    right and consumed with pride
                    and envy — losing sight that God
                    is in charge —

                God created the universe —
                I am the one with all the Power —
                Satan is a fallen angel —
                Satan's evil is evil against what God
                    wants —

                He is a fallen angel who said —
                    "I will not serve God" —
                I will do what I want —
                No one is over me —

                Now I speak to you - turn from your evil
                    before it is too late —

                Satan wants you to make confusion —
                Satan wants you to hold out to force an issue so
                    he can change the rules —
                Satan wants you to abuse others for your anger
                    inside —

                Satan is a devil —
                Satan wants you to go to hell —
                Satan wants you to rebel against
                    God's rules —

                I am Jesus —

                Satan wants you to be his
                    instrument in this
                    war of good and evil —

                You have a free will —

                Those rebelling against Me offend
                    themselves by sinning
                    against a loving good God —

                Rise up Jerusalem —
                Your time is come —
                See darkness covers the earth —
                Let My light live in you now —

                So you are instruments operating
                    to serve God —

                Let your hearts not be troubled,
                    for the sun is shining
                    in the east and
                    it will come to give you
                    light and
                    warmth at the noon day —

                Turn your face to the Light —
                Not to the darkness —

                That the Light of seven suns
                    will be seen around
                    you —

                R. Awaken my heart —
                    ready your lamp for the Lord

                Jesus: Awaken your heart, Jerusalem —
                    the night goes to deep
                    darkness, but My light
                    though it flickers, never
                    runs out - never is
                    extinguished, despite
                    man's sins —

                    My light is an eternal
                light —

                    And the darkness is an
                eternal doom of pain
                and suffering to those who
                gave into their moral sins
                and would not repent —

                    Let My laws be observed
                as given to Moses —

   

The Ten Commandments

  1. I, the Lord, am your God. You shall not have other gods besides me.
  2. You shall not take the name of the Lord, your God, in vain.

  5. You shall not kill.
  6. You shall not commit adultery.
  7. You shall not steal.
  8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

  10. You shall not covet anything that belongs to your neighbor.

     

1 John 2: 3-11

In this way we know
that we have come to know him, 
if we keep his commandments.
Whoever says, ‘I know him’
without keeping his commandments, 
is a liar,
and truth has no place in him.
But anyone who does keep his word, 
in such a one
   God’s love truly reaches its perfection.
This is the proof 
that we are in God.
Whoever claims
    to remain in him
must act as he acted.
My dear friends,
this is not a new commandment 
   I am writing for you,
but an old commandment
that you have had from the beginning;
the old commandment
   is the message you have heard.
Yet in another way, I am writing 
    a new commandment for you
—and this is true for you,
    just as much as for him—
for darkness is passing away
and the true light is already shining.
Whoever claims to be in light
but hates his brother
is still in darkness.
Anyone who loves his brother
    remains in light
 and there is in him
    nothing to make him fall away.
But whoever hates his brother
    is in darkness
and is walking about in darkness
not knowing where he is going,
because darkness has blinded him.

   

                Jesus: Love finds a way —
                Love is a choice

                You have a free will to love
                    or to not love, to sin and
                    rebel against My law of love —

                May the Light I give you
                    light your way and
                    May you know your
                    Father, who is in
                    heaven, how He
                    loves you —

                I am Jesus your beloved
                    Savior —

                Savior of the World —

                Song: A Song from Jesus

                R. O Most Holy Heart of Jesus,
                    shower Your blessings on

                We pray for the pope and all
                    priests and the Church and
                    the world —

                Oh God hear us —

                Enlighten unbelievers —

                Please stop the violence by
                    hearts serving you and
                    using their energies
                    for this —

                Help the souls in purgatory —

                Help there to be an
                    empire of love, serving
                    God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit

                Oh Bread of Life —

                    of the Mass —

                Give us the grace of a
                    holy death —

                Oh God help us —
                Oh God send donations —
                Oh God help these books
                        get printed right now —
                Oh God give joy to Your servant —
                Oh God lift up my heart —
                Oh God hear us
                Oh God have mercy on us

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

  

                Alleluia

                R. Oh God of mercy and love
                    hear us

                Sing: Sing a New Song

                Sing: All the Ends of the Earth

The Joyful Mysteries

May 2, 1995
Tuesday, Feast of St. Athanasius
Shepherds of Christ Meeting

A Rosary of Love from Jesus

 

The Annunciation

1. R. Mary says that she is so pleased that everyone has come to pray, pray for the beloved priests that she holds so tenderly to her heart. Let us meditate on these mysteries and open up our hearts and hear all the messages that Jesus and Mary want to give to our hearts.

2. R. The angel Gabriel came to Mary and asked Mary to be the Mother of God!

3. R. May complied always to the will of the Father. Mary always followed the Father's plan.

Luke 1: 38 Mary said, ‘You see before you the Lord’s servant, let it happen to me as you have said.’...

4. Luke 1: 35  The angel answered, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will cover you with its shadow. And so the child will be holy and will be called Son of God.

5. John 3: 16  For this is how God loved the world: he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.

6. R. The child Jesus was formed in the womb of the Virgin Mary.

7. R. As we meditate on these Joyful Mysteries, look at the quietness of their lives. The angel came to Mary and announced the Plan. Mary complied to the will of the Father. All through the lives of Jesus and Mary, through all fifteen decades of the rosary, we see how Jesus and Mary complied always to the Will of the Father.

8. R. Jesus came to this earth to show us the way. We are part of this plan today. As we live the life, death, resurrection in our lives today, we carry out the plan of the Father. We, too, should comply always to His will, for it is in complying with His will that we will have peace and joy in our lives.

9. R. There is such oneness between Jesus and Mary. See this oneness in Their lives. Mary carried the child Jesus in her womb. Such union between Mary and her Son! Such union between these Two Hearts. Jesus came into this world in the womb of His Mother. He loved His Mother. We can be deeply united to Jesus, the more we go through the Heart of Mary.

10. R. If the Father loved Mary so that He sent His only Son into this world in the womb of the Virgin Mary, through the power of the Holy Spirit, ought we not realize how we should pray to Mary to be led ever closer to our Beloved Father, to Jesus and to the Holy Spirit, her beloved Spouse?

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

 

The Visitation of Mary to her Cousin Elizabeth

1. R. Look at the quietness of Their lives! The angel came and announced to Mary the plan of the Father. The angel does not come and blare trumpets and roll drums. The angel came quietly. The child Jesus was conceived in the womb of the Virgin Mary. The angel told Mary that her cousin Elizabeth, in her old age, had conceived a child. Mary made haste to go and be with her cousin Elizabeth and share the Good News - the news that she was carrying God in her womb! Bubbling over with immense joy, she went to her cousin Elizabeth.

2. R. Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice:

Luke 1: 42-43 ... ‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord?

3. R. Mary was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out in a loud voice the Magnificat!

Song: My soul rejoices in God my Savior. My spirit finds its joy in God, the living God.

4. Hail Mary

5. R. The child in Elizabeth's womb leapt for joy when Mary and Jesus came. John the Baptist, even in the womb of his mother, jumped for joy at Mary and Jesus, in her womb.

6. R. Usually the servant goes to the Master. But Jesus went in the womb of His Mother, to her cousin Elizabeth. Jesus came to Elizabeth. Jesus remains with us this day. Jesus came to the earth, out of greatest love for men. The Son of God, came to this earth a baby! Jesus remains today, in the Eucharist.

7. R. I hear so plainly the voice of Jesus from the Tabernacle as He laments the love of His precious souls: each soul that He so dearly loves, each soul that is so busy in their lives that they have forgotten Him. Jesus loves us, with a burning Heart of endless love. Jesus calls us.

Jesus: Where are the souls that I love so dearly? My dear ones, what can I say to you? I tell you over and over again of My immense love for you but you do not hear. I am God and I love you with the deepest burning love. My letters I write to you, Letter after letter of My immense love. Do you know that every word that I say to you is from My burning Heart on fire for love of you? My beloved ones, My Heart burns for love of you. Do you hear Me calling? I call you to come. I stand at the door of your heart and I knock. I want. As the most ardent lover, I wait and wait patiently by your heart for you to open to Me. How I love you. I profess My immense love for you this day, but you do not hear. What more can I say to you, My dear ones? I am truly present in the consecrated host - in the Eucharist. Come to My Burning Heart! How I love you, My dear, dear, dear beloved souls! I love you! I love you! I love you! I am Jesus, your Savior, I love you.

8. Song: I come to you with greatest love. I am your loving Savior. I am your God, I died for you. I come to you this day.

9. Jesus: I was carried in the womb of My Mother and now I am a prisoner, locked in the Tabernacle and remain there in greatest love for you, My dear ones. Do you hear Me call? Do you read My letters from My burning Heart to you? Do you know that every word that I write is My letter of love to you? Do you know that I love you so that I came to this earth a helpless baby in the womb of the Virgin Mary and I shed My flesh and My Blood for love of you? I love you, My dear souls, I call to you.

10. Song: O Burning Heart, O love Divine, how sweet you are to me. I see the host, I know You are here to love and care for me.

Jesus: Come to Me, My beloved souls, for My Heart is warm and burning for love of you.

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

 

The Birth of Jesus

1. Jesus: This is My rosary of love for each one of you.

2. John 3: 16  For this is how God loved the world: he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.

3. Jesus: Ponder deeply in your heart the love of the Father to send His Son. I am your Savior - I want you to go to heaven.

Before the Blessed Sacrament

4. Jesus: You take My love so lightly! My dear ones, My dear ones, how do I make you understand how I am present with you this day in the Holy Eucharist. I am in this room with you truly present in the Tabernacle as the day I was born in a stable in Bethlehem. How favored you would feel to be in Bethlehem the night of My birth. But My dear ones, you do not see that I am as present with you this day in this room. I remain with you in greatest love. My dear ones, open wide your hearts to let Me penetrate your souls. Let Me send to you such graces that you will have the opportunity for closer and closer union with Me as you give yourself more and more to Me in love.

5. Jesus: My Heart is burning and on fire for you, My chosen ones.

6. R. See the Child Jesus laying in a manger in Bethlehem. There was not room for Jesus in the Inn. He was born in a stable among the beasts. How is it this day that the Son of God remains here truly present in the Tabernacles in this world? Is He received in the world today as He should be? There was not room for Him by those in the town of Bethlehem, but how His Heart is offended by the indifference for the souls that do not even recognize, Jesus, truly present here in the consecrated host. How I hear Him lament on Sunday for people who laugh and talk right here in front of the Tabernacle in the Church. We need to spread the message that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is truly present in His Divinity and humanity in the consecrated host. Jesus is in our midst in the Tabernacles in this world. We should bend our knees and bow and kiss the ground and adore the Almighty God for He remains with us out of His great love for us.

7. Song: Oh Little Town of Bethlehem

R. Jesus was born in the town of Bethlehem. God was born a helpless baby on earth! Jesus remains with us this day and gives to us Himself, when we go to communion. Do we realize the great gift that God gives Himself to us?

8. R. Blare the trumpets! Sound the gong! The Almighty God lives and is present this day and in our midst and He gives Himself to us in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist! Dear Spirit, open up our eyes and our hearts to more and more realize the great gifts we are given. Outpour to us Your grace, Your life, so that we may have a greater outpouring of Your life in us - Your grace abundantly filling us. We praise You! We worship You! We adore You and thank You, Jesus Christ, for coming to this earth a baby, so approachable. A baby! God came to this earth a baby!

9. R. And many men, busy about their lives, do not have time or a place for God. Jesus was born in a manger, laid on bare wood and He died on a cross. He came to show us the way. This is love! God gave Himself on the cross and He gives Himself to us this day in the Holy Eucharist.

10. Song: O Holy Dwelling Place of God. O Holy Temple of the Word. O Holy, Holy Mary. Holy Mother of God!

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

R. At every Mass, the priest raises the consecrated host and we behold the Son of God before our eyes, feel His presence, know Jesus truly present in the Holy Eucharist.

 

The Presentation of Jesus

1. R. Joseph and Mary took the Child Jesus to the Temple. The prophet Simeon was there and he told Mary of the sufferings of Jesus that are to come. He said to Mary: A sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

2. R. Mary held the words of Simeon deeply in her heart and every time she watched her beloved Son at play, she remembered the words of Simeon, said that Jesus and Mary would suffer.

3. R. How the heart of Mary knows the Heart of Jesus. His Most Sacred Heart was born in her womb through the power of the Holy Spirit. How close Mary is to Jesus. Look at Their lives! Always through the rosary, we see Mary close to Jesus. It is through her tender and pure Heart that we will be led to the deepest recesses of Jesus' Most Sacred Heart.

4. R. See Mary clearly holding the beautiful baby child while receiving Simeon's prophecy. See Mary and the tender baby in her arms. See Mary as she held His lifeless body under the cross. This is the same tender baby that she held in her arms. She held Him in her arms under the cross, the look of horror was on her face to see Him covered with blood and wounds, dead and cold in her arms, the life was gone in His body. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary.

5. R. See Mary as she held this tender, beautiful baby in her arms and think of the words of Simeon and meditate on the gazing look between the Two on the way to Calvary - deep and penetrating. Jesus peers into Mary's eyes. Jesus saw her face reddened and covered with tears and Mary looked into His face. His face covered with blood. Jesus' head was crowned with thorns. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary.

6. R. How much Mary likes for us to say the Seven Sorrows.

(1) The prophecy of Simeon
(2) The flight into Egypt
(3) The loss of the Child Jesus in the temple
(4) Jesus and Mary meet on the way to the cross
(5) Jesus dies on the cross
(6) Jesus is taken down from the cross and laid in Mary's arms
(7) The burial of Jesus

7. R. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary. The union, the oneness between Jesus and Mary! This is our Beloved Mother! Mary loves us more than any earthly mother. Mary is so close to us, forever there ready to lead us closer and closer to the love of her Son. Mary calls out to each one of us here to come ever closer to Jesus' Heart, an endless abyss of burning love. Jesus gave His Flesh and His Blood for love of us! Mary knows the love that Jesus has for us. Mary calls us to come for His burning love. Jesus' love can light the darkened world for we are children of God sent into this world to carry the Gospel message to the world. Jesus Christ Died! Jesus is Risen! Jesus will come again!

8. Song: Mary's Song

9. R. Mary, leads us ever closer to the burning love of your Son, Jesus.

10. R. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

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

 

The Finding of Jesus in the Temple

1. R. This is a rosary from the Heart of Jesus and from the heart of Mary. Mary asks us to spread these rosaries to all of her children in this world so they may know more and more the burning love of her Son. Jesus was lost in the temple. How many of her beloved children are lost. Mary comes to us today and asks us to lead the children home, home to the Heart of her Son, Jesus.

2. Mary: Do you not know that I am your Heavenly Mother and I love each child so dearly? So many souls will be condemned to the fires of Hell for their sinfulness. My beloved ones, my chosen ones, my children that I have called to you at the Center this night to hear my call. You are special ones so close to the Heart of my Son. Jesus' love is deep within your breast. The more you grow in your union with Him, the more His love reflects from your being. Little children of mine, one soul close to my Son, Jesus, can spread such light to the darkened world. You are chosen. You are special. You are being called by your Heavenly Mother to go into this world and spread the light of Jesus. To cover this earth with light, your hearts must be ever joined to Jesus' Heart.

3. Mary: Look at the lost children in this world. It is your light that will show them the way home.

4. Mary: Do not underestimate what one soul, powered by the love of Jesus Christ, can do for this hurting world. Each child here is so precious, so favored, so loved, so needed for this work. I am Mary, your Mother.

5. Mary: Your petitions I take to your Heavenly Father for I know the struggles that you go through, my dear, sweet ones. I am protecting you with my mantle. May your hearts ever join closer and closer to the Heart of my Son.

6. Mary: Satan stalks this earth as a prowling lion wanting souls to devour. Little ones, keep your hearts fixed on the love of Jesus. Pray to the Spirit to fill you with the fire of His love. Pray to the Spirit for fearlessness to carry out the message of God's love for you will be met with greatest resistance. My heart was in sorrow at the loss of my Son. How my heart is sorrowing this day at the loss of my beloved children. Will you light the way? Will you show them the path home, the path that leads to the Heart of my Son, Jesus? I cry to you from my Motherly heart. In all your struggles, follow Jesus, follow Jesus, follow Jesus, and ignite the dark world with the fire of Jesus' love!

7. Song: Immaculate Mary

8. Mary: You are a city set on a hill that will shine its light to the darkened world, the light of Jesus. Priests will create little cities that will shine as beacon lights to light up the darkness. Do as Jesus asked Fr. Carter to do. It is through your prayers, your life lived in obedience to the Father's will in love, and your hearts fixed closely to the Heart of my Son, that the plan of the Father will unfold. You are my special ones I have called, you who are so fervent in your hearts and filled with such love. Pray to the Holy Spirit for the strength to answer this call.

9. Song: O Burning Heart, O love Divine, how sweet you are to me. I see the host, I know You are here to love and care for me.

10. Song: Like a Shepherd

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

 

R. This rosary was prayed before Jesus in the Tabernacle and Mary in Our Mother of Sorrows statue in Our Mother of Sorrows Chapel during the Shepherds of Christ Meeting. Rita said Jesus appeared and Mary appeared.

 

 

June 26, 1995

Jesus: My apostles first began to travel to Florida. I sent them to Florida to deliver messages from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary in the rosary. I began then to pave the way for the Lady's visit in Florida, for connections were made from this visit to Florida.

R. Our first apostle trip took us to Florida first Naples, then Delray Beach and Boca Raton — this was at the end of the month of the Sacred Heart June 1995. When I got to Naples June 26, 1995 — Jesus gave me this message — I called Fr. Carter and read it to him. From Naples, Florida — my first live rosary in Florida June 26, 1995 before a houseful of guests.

R. We were called to Florida to begin our apostle work in late June, 1995. On June 26, 1995, we arrived at Naples, Florida, went to early Mass, and then slept after a long journey. At 12:00, I was awakened to deliver a very timely message of June 26, 1995, that appears in the Apostles' Manual. The timing was crucial, and I made connections there that would help to spread Mary's message to the world from her site in Florida after she appeared on the building almost 1 1/2 years later.

The Pain - Naples, Florida

R. He spread His arms, He gave His all, Jesus, the Son of God, the greatest sacrifice, He gave Himself entirely for the good of all men. He opened His arms, He died on the cross.

His arms were covered with blood, His arms so weak and filled with pain, wounded. His arms, the pain shot up His arms and the final blow to each arm a nail through each precious hand.

All the agony He experienced, all the pain, and the crown, to each arm, a nail hammered into the hand.

All the nerves cut and severed by the nail, the pain shooting up His precious arms, the final blow given to His most precious members.

The legs that carried Him, that carried the heavy cross, the legs that were forced and cajoled, that continues to Calvary - the legs weakened, skinned, bleeding, beaten, burned, the legs that knew patience and perseverance, the legs connected to a sore foot that was rubbed and gashed and bleeding, the members of Jesus, filled with such pain and exhaustion, now is crowned with the final glory. The nail that was driven into the foot, the pain shot up this already weakened leg, covered with blood and wounds and pain, the final blow, the nerves severed by the hammered nail.

A blow to each hand, a blow to each foot, a blow to the head, a stamping that pressed down and continued in excruciating pain.

Jesus: They numbered all My bones. They gave Me vinegar and gall to drink. They gave Me a cloth to wipe My blood-covered flesh.

What did they give to Me? Love is giving, My dear ones. How many of you are wounded when you are not given things by your brothers you love?

My members were in such pain, the pain shot up My arms. My legs were so weak I could scarce move them. I was filled with pain within them.

To all who watched, they saw a man, weakened and covered with blood and wounds. They did not see the pain inside that shot up My legs and arms, the nerves inside My body that sent signals of deep pain to My central nervous system. They did not see the nerves inside sending pain signals everywhere.

The final blow being to each hand and foot, the severing of My nerves by the blunt and rusted nails.

An arm extended. A final blow. I beheld a nail pounded into My hand and the pain shot up My arms, unbearable to a human mind.

Do you know of the pain within My body? Signals sending messages of deep pain everywhere. I knew all of these sufferings in the garden. So great were the sufferings to My mind, I sweat blood.

My flesh was covered with wounds. My arms were stretched from their sockets. My body was beaten and bleeding, every inch of My body covered with deep wounds. But, My loved ones, you miss the depth of My love. My wounds were so deep, but the final wound, the pounding of the nails in My hands and feet, a severing of the nerves, an ending of the deepest pain, to experience even deeper pain, beyond your human comprehension, it was done to the Almighty God, a Divine Person, I suffered the final blow to each member.

The pounding in the hands and feet, the crown to each member, and they numbered all My bones. My nerves a network of pain running throughout My entire body.

The pain within the body, the pain recorded in My loving head, the pain sent by a network of nerves in My body, now records the final blows, the nails in the hands and feet, the pain being recorded from every thorn that pierced My skull, every gash to My body, the pain, the pain, the pain - a network of signals and pain, running through My body and the final hour, the pains recorded on the cross, arms outstretched - a surrendering to all pain. I surrendered to a body laden with pain.

You focus on your little problems, your little aches and pains. You discuss them and show the world your pin pricks and sufferings.

Do you want to know holiness and love? They gave Me vinegar mixed with gall. This was their offering. They gave Me a cross. They crowned My head with a crown of thorns.

This, My dear ones, is suffering, My beloved souls, I gave My life for and this is their return.

A severing of My nerves, the final blows to all the aches and pains recorded in My nervous system. This was one of the final blows - the rusted nails pounded into My hands.

You will feel little aches and pains in your hands and feet to remind you of this message. Your understanding of the immense pain within will deepen. What was visible to the eye on My battered body was nothing compared to the pains within. I gave My all. I gave My insides, My mind, My Heart, wounded for the love of men.

All functions in the body were stopped.

The final curtain, blood and water pouring out from My Heart, show that all functions of the body had ended.

R. All signals that carried messages of immense pain had ended, the final act of surrender for God to die to this human body and surrender His flesh.

Jesus: And end, a beginning, the water and blood flowed from My Heart, the beginning of My life in the Church, life flowing into your spirit.

R. Come give me life, abundant life. I thirst to be with Thee.

Jesus: My blood was spent. My human flesh and blood offered as the sacrifice, the sacrifice of Calvary is now made present at every Mass.

An end, a beginning, and the grace and life flow through the sacraments in the Church. My life flows to you in the Mass. Mary, the Mediatrix of all grace, stands by the side of the altar and the grace flows from the Father, through My body offered up as a sacrifice in the Holy Spirit, given through the Mothership of Mary to you in the Church.

You stand under the cross with My Mother and you receive the gift given, My Body, My Blood.

R. Man is reconciled with the Father through the Divine Person, Jesus Christ, and you receive His life poured out to you as Calvary is made present in the unbloody sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Do you feel the graces poured out to you at this sacrifice of the Son of God at every Mass? Do you feel the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and Mary, all the angels and saints, and the souls in purgatory? Do you feel united as one at the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present upon the altar through the priest? The priest who now puts on Christ and through Him the dispenser of this life given to man.

Jesus: Oh, My beloved ones, love so dearly your priest. Give him such reverence. He is the chosen instrument of God and you treat him with such ordinariness. You are so blind and so dumb in your ways.

And they numbered all My bones. Each nerve carrying a message of My love of mankind, each member in My Church carrying a special message, all united as one working in harmony according to the Father's will, each carrying a message of love to one another.

The body is many members, you are the messengers of My love. Christ is the head. The message does not flow as it should when some are cut off from the Head.

They nailed My hands and feet and My nerves were severed by the nails, such pain, undescribable in words, the severing of My nerves from the body, the severing of many members from the body of Christ.

My Body given for all on the cross, the network of nerves within carrying the messages of My love to all mankind. My body covered on the outside with blood and wounded, the pain recorded within.

Your Church, covered with blood on the outside, the slaughter of innocent babies, the homosexuality, the sins of the flesh, the members that have severed themselves from the source by their sins, but the pain is carried in the nerves inside. The blood of the Lamb shed for each and every soul, the real pain carried within. The life is weakened in your Church because the love of God is so weak in many members. The messages of love are not being transmitted as they should be. Your body shows the wounds, but your pain within is the root of the problems. The pain is from the messages of love that are not being transmitted.

Unless you seek to fill your priests and sisters with the fire of God's love, fill their hearts with burning love for God, your Church will continue to show the marks of the blood shed without. I give to you these letters as a mighty medicine for this world, directed to make men's hearts burn with love of God and love of one another. The rosaries are meditations and messages given from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

These messages will make men's hearts burn with fire for love of God.

You have ignored the importance of these letters.

I send to you the mighty medicine to heal a hurting world.

My priests and religious need these messages. The love of God will be transmitted to the Church from these messages when you circulate these letters.

The devil has blocked the minds of men involved in these messages because of their importance to the world and the Church.

I am speaking to you Fr. Carter to help to get these messages published and circulated as soon as possible. I give to you a mighty medicine for a sick world.

Read St. Thomas Aquinas about the medicine for the sick Church.

You know what these messages have done for you. I am Jesus. I give to you the mighty medicine for a sick world, for a sick Church, rosaries and letters from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Your Church shows the wounds of bloodshed, abortion, homosexuality, sins of the flesh, murder of little children's minds with sex education in Catholic schools and you hold back the gifts of God's love I am giving to the Church and this world.

My arms were weak and wounded but the final blow as the nail put in My hand. It severed the nerves.

The final blow is the bloodshed in the Church, the slaughtering of children's minds in Catholic schools. My children are pure and innocent. They are not being taught messages of God's love, they are being taught messages of sick sex and coldness.

Men's hearts have turned cold. They have been severed from the life of the body. The body is decaying from within. Only with the love of God enkindled in men's hearts will this bloodshed stop.

I beg you to publish and circulate these messages in the Church. I am Jesus. I am giving you the mighty medicine for the world. Your body wears the marks of the bloodshed, only with messages of My on-fire love will it stop.

Mary leads you to Jesus. Never is she the end. The Father has a plan. Mary's messages have led men and will lead men to Jesus. Satan has tried to stop all efforts to publish and circulate these messages. I am the Almighty God. The funds will come when you circulate and publish these messages and rosaries under the Shepherds of Christ Publishing. I am working with Fr. Carter and Rita as messenger to renew the Church and the world. Each messenger has a very vital role in the Father's plan. The significance of these messages are being overlooked. You are not studying the messages as a whole and their content. There are five unpublished Blue Books and more than four Rosary Books which I and My Mother have given to this world in the last 14 months. I have also given 15 songs of My love. I am begging you to see to the recording and publishing of this music. I beg you to listen. This is the mighty medicine for the Church and the world to draw men to the burning love of Jesus. Please harken to My call. I will send you the money. You must study and read these messages. This is a fulfillment of Fatima - these messages were given to bring priests to the burning love of Jesus. I am Jesus, your beloved Savior.

    

   

June 29, 1995

transcribed from a live tape
this rosary was given in Boca Raton, Florida  

The Annunciation

1. R. Put yourself in the presence of God. Feel Him within your heart. Make a Spiritual Communion and feel His presence deep within your heart. Feel Him as when you receive Him in the Holy Eucharist, block out all the distractions from this day and take this time to be alone with Jesus and Mary in your heart and to hear the messages that They will tell you.

2. Jesus: My dear ones, I am so present to you. I am Jesus, your beloved Savior. Let go of all those things at this moment that hold you bound. Let go of any anger, or resentment toward any person. Forgive that person and come with a heart that is open and ready to be filled with My love. I love you My dear ones, with the deepest love. Let go. Block out all distractions. I am Jesus. I want to unite so closely to your heart. I knock at the door to your heart, will you answer?

3. R. The Father has a plan for each one of us. As we meditate on the mysteries of the rosary, we see the Father's Plan unfold in the lives of Jesus and Mary. With such peace and joy for they did always the Father's Will.

4. R. The angel Gabriel comes to the Virgin Mary and asks Mary to be the Mother of God. How Mary loved the Father. She wanted, as a daughter, to please Him with such love. And now the angel comes and asks Mary to be the Mother of God. 

5. R. Mary always complied to the Will of the Father. She said, "Be it done unto Me according to Thy Word."

6. R. She was filled with the Holy Spirit and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. 

7. R. (with deep emotion) The mysteries of the rosary — each one of these mysteries — the mysterythink of the mystery. The angel comes to the Virgin Mary and she conceives the Child Jesus, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Meditate deeply on these mysteries. Look in the womb of the Virgin Mary; the Child Jesus is formed. His Most Sacred Heart formed within Her womb, through the Holy Spirit. Jesus and Mary living in one body. She gives to Him His life support. He's growing within Her womb. Such intimacy between the Child Jesus and the Virgin Mary, as He grows within Her womb. 

8. R. The Child Jesus within the Virgin Mary, the two Hearts beating within one body. The specialness of the Virgin Mary, that the Father chose Mary from all women to send His Son into this world, in Mary. The Child Jesus makes His entry into this world in Mary; always through Mary to Jesus. 

9. R. Such intimacy between Jesus and His Mother from the first moment of conception. 

10. Song: O Holy, Dwelling Place of God

("Ave, Ave, Ave Maria"...song to be sung after each decade)

 

The Visitation

1. R. Mary's Heart was bursting with such joy to carry the Good News to her cousin, Elizabeth. She made haste to her cousin, Elizabeth.

2. R. Do we see the plan of the Father as it unfolds in the mysteries of the rosary? The Life, Death and Resurrection of Jesus come alive to us as we meditate on these mysteries. First of all the angel comes and speaks about Mary becoming the Mother of Jesus. Such calmness, God is on the earth within the womb of the Virgin Mary and Mary goes to tell her cousin Elizabeth. At the Center, in Cincinnati, the mysteries of the rosary are pictured in the windows in the Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Chapel. Jesus said that they are part of the plan of the Father. Across from the Visitation window is Mary as she is taken body and soul into heaven. And next to that she is crowned Queen of heaven and earth. She said, "yes" to the angel, always doing the will of the Father. And she is crowned Queen of heaven and earth. The Father has a plan for each one of us. Each one of us has been uniquely created by Him. Each one of us, from the day we were born, has been guarded and watched. Each of us has special talents to carry out this plan. We are so favored and so precious to Him. The plan of the Father is unfolding for the fulfillment of the Fatima message. The Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph. The Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign, and there will be an era of peace. The plan of the Father is unfolding. Each one of us is being called by Jesus and Mary to go into this world and to spread the love of Jesus.

3. R. Mary goes to Her cousin Elizabeth, and Elizabeth says, "Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord?" (Lk 1:43)

4. R. How is it that God comes to us? Jesus Christ, the Son of God, truly present in His Divinity and Humanity, no less present than He was in the womb of the Virgin Mary when she visited her cousin Elizabeth, comes to us in the Eucharist. And He also waits for each one of us to come to Him as He is present in the tabernacle. He wants us to be so close to Him. I hear His lamenting cries, His cries from the tabernacle. How He loves and thirsts and waits for His precious souls. How present He is, truly present there in His Divinity and Humanity. We think, if we were there and we saw the Virgin Mary with the Child Jesus within her womb, how we would be so blest. But we receive this same Jesus within our hearts in Communion in such intimacy. God comes to us. Are we not so blest? Should we not jump for joy, as John jumped within the womb of his mother at the presence of Almighty God? Who are we that the Father so loved this world that He sent His only begotten Son and that Jesus remains with us this day in the Eucharist?

5. R. In Jesus' love song we hear, "I come to you with greatest love. I am your loving Savior. I am your God. I died for you. I come to you this day."

6. R. Jesus in the womb of the Virgin Mary went to visit Elizabeth and John. Today we receive His Life, His grace, a visit from Jesus. We pray to be so sensitive to the touch of His grace that He imparts to us in such abundance. We pray to experience this life within our being and to realize His presence within us.

7. R. Each grace, a visit from Jesus. We are reborn in Baptism. We become partakers in His divine life and we receive an increase in this life through the reception of the Eucharist. He is giving to us His divine grace. We pray to be so sensitive to this life that He gives to us, paid for by the price of His precious Blood. We are so blest. The Mass is the most glorious event. We are given such great gifts from God, for He gives to us the gift of Himself in the Holy Eucharist. Who are we that God comes to us? As we meditate on this mystery and think of Jesus and Mary visiting Elizabeth, think of the visits that we receive from God Himself because of His love for us. He remains with us and is longing and thirsting and waiting for deeper and deeper union with us.

8. R. And as we are filled more and more with this life within us, this life is reflected from our being. A light that shines in the dark night as Jesus, Jesus Christ the Son of God, lives within us. It is in Baptism that we become partakers of His divine life and if we stay in the state of grace, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit remain within us in such a special way. Who are we that God lives within us? If the wind blows and the sun ceases to shine, the presence of the Almighty God is within our being. What have we to fear if we truly realize that God is within us?

9. Jesus: My children! My children! Come so close to My Heart. My Heart is burning and on fire for love of you. I am Jesus. I long and thirst and wait for you. By the door of your heart, I wait! I wait! I wait! Minute by minute, second by second within your breast I call out to you. I love you! I love you! I love you! Do you hear these words in your heart? Do you come in silence and spend time so you can hear Me speaking within you? I am Jesus, My beloved ones. I long to be so united to you.

10. R. A visit from Jesus. Who are we that God loves us so much?

 

The Birth of Jesus

1. R. Joseph went from door to door and tried to find a place for Jesus to be born. Jesus was born in a cave in Bethlehem. The Son of God comes to this earth. He does not come adorned in silver and gold with a court of high officials. He comes to this earth the Son of God, a helpless little baby born in such poverty. Think of the mystery that God comes to this earth and puts on a little baby body. Can we comprehend even a small amount that God came to this earth in a little baby body? 

2. R. He comes to this earth. He wants to be loved by all of His precious souls. He comes a little baby, approachable. A tender infant, so lovable and He is rejected by man. There is not room for Jesus.  Is this not how it is today? Jesus remains with us truly present in the Eucharist. The Son of God in every Tabernacle in this world. How the concert houses are packed and the ball games, and the Son of God waits in the Tabernacle for His beloved souls to come and to be with Him. And He outpours His grace and His Divine Love to His beloved ones that come. The Son of God waits for us. 

3. R. He is born in a stable surrounded by sheep and shepherds. The Son of God surrounded by His flock.  Jesus Christ, the Chief Shepherd of the flock comes a baby into the world. He came to this earth for all men. He loves each and every precious soul. He shed His blood for each soul, not just for the high and mighty. He comes for each soul that He loves so dearly. 

4. R. And He will shepherd them. 

5. R. Jesus Christ, the Son of God laying in a manger and He laid down His life for His sheep. Jesus comes into this earth born on bare wood and He goes out hanging on a cross of bare wood. He came to this earth for each one of us. How He loves us. He comes not adorned in gold and silver, but wrapped in swaddling clothes and laying in a manger.  The Son of God comes into this world in a little baby body. This is the love that God the Father has for each one of us that He sent His only begotten Son into this world. 

6. R. Jesus, rejected by the men of the earth, but the Heavens proclaimed His glory. The star shone above His bed. 

7. R. We know so little of the love of God. We meditate on this mystery how God so loved the world that He comes to this earth and puts on a human body. Would we be so fearful if we realized His presence and how close He is to us. He is with us. Second by second, minute by minute He dwells in our hearts. We are never alone. I know this interior life, I go inside of me and meditate on this presence with me. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within us in a special way when we are in the state of grace. Jesus appeared His Heart ablaze. The Heart of burning love for His precious souls. Jesus the Son of God is born a baby in the town of Bethlehem and He comes and wants us to give Him our love. 

Jesus: I want hearts that are burning and on fire for love of Me. My dear ones, I am Jesus. I wait! I wait! I wait by the door of your heart and bid you to open the door. Many have forgotten. They neglect Me. My dear ones, I am calling out to you. Come to My Heart. Find refuge from this cold world in My Heart. As I was rejected, you, too, will be rejected by this world that has turned Godless. Come to Me and I will give you rest. I am Jesus, your beloved Savior. I love you with the deepest love. I am waiting for you, My dear ones. Will you answer this call?

8. Song: I Come to You with Greatest Love

9. Song: Little Baby Hands Has He

10. Song: What Child is This

  

The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple

1. R. Joseph and Mary took the Child Jesus to the Temple and presented Him to the Father.   

2R. The old man, Simeon is there.   

‘Look, he is destined for the fall and for the rise of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is opposed—and a sword will pierce your soul too—so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare.' Luke 2: 34-35

3. R. From this point on each time that Mary saw Her beloved Child, she knew of the sufferings that would come.

Jesus: I am Jesus. You do not fully know the tender love that I have for you. I am here and I am outpouring to you tender love.  

4. R. The Child Jesus comes to this earth in the womb of His Mother. He comes in Her body.  The two Hearts beating in one body. In the Temple, He is held in the arms of His Mother. And after He died on the cross, He is held in Her arms. It is in Mary, in Her most loving Heart that She places us in the deepest recesses of Her Son's Heart. We can jump to Her loving arms as the Child Jesus jumped to Her arms. In The Lady of Perpetual Help picture, Jesus lost His little shoe. If we jump to Her arms, our loving Mother will protect us. She spreads Her mantle and Her protection over us, and our weapon — the rosary. In this world that is in suffering and in pain, we pray the rosary, our weapon, against the evils of this world. 

5. R. We see the Virgin Mary as She holds the Child Jesus so tenderly in Her arms and She gazes into His eyes. And I see the Virgin Mary as She holds His lifeless body under the cross. "A sword too, shall pierce your soul, O Mary."       

6. R. Jesus was formed in the womb of the Virgin Mary. He was given His physical life in His body from Mary. Through Baptism we are reborn to new life. It is in Her spiritual womb that we are formed more and more into His image and likeness through the Holy Spirit. Jesus was formed in Her womb through the Holy Spirit. Our life is a constant journey where we are formed more and more in Her Heart through the Holy Spirit to be like Jesus. And it is in this likeness that we are led closer and closer to our beloved Father. For, to know Jesus is to know the Father. The closer we become to Jesus, the closer we become to the Father. Our Father so loved us that He sent His only begotten Son into this world. And all through the Passion, Jesus knew the Father's love. Do we know how the Father loves us? That He gave us His Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus is a Divine Person. Jesus has two natures:  Human and Divine. Jesus Christ the Son of God is truly present in the Blessed Sacrament today. 

7. R. Jesus Christ bridges the gap between humanity and divinity. Who are we that God so loved this world? 

8. "And a sword too, shall pierce your soul O Mary." 

R. We see before us the Child Jesus in the arms of His Mother. And we see Them as Their eyes meet on the way to Calvary. As She looks into the eyes of Her Son, His face covered with blood and His head crowned with thorns, and She sees the love of Her Son Jesus and She appears to us and asks us to see through Her eyes the love of Her Son Jesus this day. If we were there on Calvary, if we looked through Her eyes, would we see the love in His eyes? The love that He has for us. But He suffered and died. He was born a helpless baby. He rose and ascended into Heaven. The price of this life given to us is the price of His blood. If we look into the eyes of our beloved Savior as Mary did all through Her life from the time She held Him in Her arms in the Temple, to the time She peered into His eyes on the way to Calvary, would we see the love of Jesus? For I hear Him lament how He longs and thirsts and waits and wants such close union with each and every soul that He would give His life for us this day. His greatest agonies were not the agonies that He experienced to His body, but the agonies that He suffered to His Most Sacred Heart for the neglect, the indifference and the sacrileges that are committed against Him especially in the Blessed Sacrament, the Sacrament of His greatest love. 

9. Song: Little Baby Hands has He

10. Song: I Watched Him as a Baby

R. Can we look through the eyes of Mary and see Her beloved Son? Can we go to Her Heart and join in deeper and deeper union with Him? Her Heart is pierced with a sword. His Heart is pierced with a lance. The Hearts of deepest love beating in love for man.

Hail Mary...... 

R. And He wears around His Heart the crown of thorns for all the indifference and neglect, and sacrileges, all those who wound His Heart for He loves each soul to His death and He would die this day for each precious soul. Mary comes and calls out to us to come to the Heart of Her Son. The Heart that is burning and waiting and longing to be united so close to Him.

 

The Finding of Jesus in the Temple

1. Song: Our Lady of Fatima

2. R. The Child Jesus was taken to the Temple by Mary and Joseph for the feast of the Passover and when it was over Mary and Joseph went on their way and the Child remained behind. 

3. R. Their hearts in such sorrowing they returned to search for the Child Jesus. Think of this, separation of three days between Mary and Jesus. 

4. R. And they found Jesus in the Temple and He was talking to the doctors and they were astounded at His wisdom and knowledge. Look at the lives of Jesus and Mary in the Father's Plan. God comes to this earth in the womb of the Virgin Mary. God! And there is such quietness. This is God, Jesus born on the earth. Always peace and joy all through these mysteries. They knew the Father's Plan. The Father has this plan for each one of us and it is unfolding. It is in living according to His Will that we will have peace and joy in our lives. It is only living according to His Will that we will find this peace. His little children dependent on their most loving Father, the Father that loves us so much, that loves His creation, that has gifted us so abundantly each one of us so specially, so uniquely created to help aid in His Plan of Salvation. And Jesus and Mary are calling us this day to come to Their Hearts and to dwell in Their Hearts. To come ever closer, to follow the Will of the Father and live our lives according to this plan. 

5. Mary: I am Mary your Mother. My dear ones, so many of my little children are lost and hurting in this world and I call out to you to come to the Heart of my Son, Jesus, to pray as you have never prayed before with your whole heart, your whole soul and your whole being. So many souls will be lost for their sinfulness. I am calling you this evening to come, come to my Heart and I will place you deeply in the Heart of my Son, Jesus. I am your beloved Mother. I mother you with such tender love. I protect you. I guard you, my little children. Will you pray for the children of this world? So many souls have strayed from the Heart of my Son. Your prayers are mighty weapons in this world. Pray! Pray! Pray! These are my beloved children, some of whom are on the path to damnation. My dear, dear children, I am your Mother and I am calling you. You will be rejected, you will be persecuted. You will be treated hatefully. You are my chosen ones that I am sending into this world, a world that is suffering. My Son Jesus is persecuted and rejected. I am guarding you. I am Mary your Mother. Do not give in to Satan. He wants you stopped. You must proceed fearlessly ahead in the Holy Spirit. Pray for the fearlessness of the Apostles to go into this world and to spread the love of Our Hearts. My dear ones, I am your Mother and I am guarding you on your way.

6. Mary: Such sinfulness in this world today. Such vileness the little children are being taught. Children are being murdered. Open your eyes and see before you the sin in this world. I am your Mother and I am calling you to go out with your hearts filled with the love of my Son Jesus. Your arms, a heart on fire for love of God. I am Mary your Mother. Will you answer my call?

7. Mary: When you are persecuted, come to Our Hearts. Find refuge in the Heart of my Son. You must be strong soldiers in this war against Satan. Pray the rosary every day! Pray the rosary! Pray as you have never prayed before. Prayer is your weapon against the evils of this world. Know that I am with you, guarding you and spreading my mantle upon you.

8. R. Do we see our brothers that are lost in this world this day? Do we see that we are given great graces and Jesus and Mary are giving us Their Hearts filled with such love? Do we see these great graces that we are given and thank Them for all our gifts and praise the Father, Son and Holy Spirit for the love of God? How are we responding to God's love in this world? Are our hearts filled with the love of Jesus? 

9. Mary: You are the lights that shine in the darkest nights, the lights that shine to the world that has forgotten God and is suffering and in pain. All throughout the world are hearts that are filled with the love of God that are radiating this light. Come ever closer to the Heart of my Son and you will shine as beacon lights to light the way of many that are in pain.

10. Mary: I am Mary of the most holy rosary. Pray the rosary as your weapon against Satan. As you pray the rosary, the life of my Son will live within you and you will carry to this world this message of His love. Meditate on the mysteries of the rosary and pray to the Holy Spirit to lead you on your way. Pray for the grace to know and love God more and more, and every day pray to the Father in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Spirit and offer up all of your prayers, works, joys and sufferings of the day. Your prayers are so important to the plan of salvation. The plan of the Father is unfolding. Each one of you, threads in the tapestry, is so important with the special mission to go out to this world and to spread His love. Your mission may be a mission of prayer. Your mission may be one where you preach the word of my Son. My dear ones, it is in moments in front of the tabernacle that you will find your answers. Come to the Heart of my Son Jesus and He will speak in the inner promptings of your heart. Come to the tabernacle for His Life and let Him fill you more and more with His divine life and His divine love. You are far more precious than the finest pearls. I am Mary your Mother and I thank you for responding to this call. This is a rosary from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary delivered to you with greatest love.

 

R. Mary would like us to do The Seven Sorrows. 

1st Sorrow: The Prophecy of Simeon. And a sword too, shall pierce your soul O Mary.

Hail Mary..... 

2nd Sorrow: The Flight into Egypt.

Hail Mary..... 

3rd Sorrow: The Loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple.

Hail Mary... 

4th Sorrow: And Their Eyes Peered Into One Another's on the Way to Calvary.

Hail Mary..... 

5th Sorrow: Jesus dies on the Cross.

R. Before His death Jesus gave to us, His beloved Mother. She is our Spiritual Mother that leads us on our way, and each day we go closer and closer to our final end. Each day from Baptism to eternity. We become filled more and more with His life when we go to the sacraments. She stood beneath the cross and He gave to us His loving Mother. Mary mothers us. We are formed in her Immaculate Heart (her spiritual womb) through the power of the Holy Spirit. Mary is mother of the Church. We live out the life, death and resurrection of Christ in our lives. Through His pierced Heart gushed forth, blood and water. Water, a symbol for Baptism. Blood, a symbol for the Eucharist. And through His pierced Heart, the Church was born. We as members of the Church are members of His body. "And a sword too shall pierce Your Heart O Mary".  And Mary stands beneath the cross and I hear the cries for Her heart was in such sorrowing for all the souls that would be lost despite the sufferings and death of Her Son. And She calls out to us this day to be strong soldiers to go into this world. For we will make the difference. How strong we are! How fearless we are! For Jesus and Mary are calling us to live the Gospel in our lives, commissioned through Baptism to carry it out to others.

Hail Mary....                     

6th Sorrow:  Mary Receives the Lifeless Body of Her Son in Her Arms.

R. His body covered and wounded that bear the marks of His great love. He did the Father's Will to His death.  Always through the lives of Jesus and Mary perfect peace doing the Will of the Father. It is in compliance to His Will that our peace and joy lie.  "And a sword too, shall pierce Your Heart, O Mary."

Hail Mary.... 

7th Sorrow: Jesus is Locked in the Tomb.

R. And Mary weeps outside bitterly. The price paid — Jesus gave His life — His precious Body and Blood.  And He remains this day in the Eucharist and calls out, "Tell them, Rita, tell them how I am longing and waiting and thirsting for their love. And every word that I write in My letters are words of My love for them. I love you! I love you! I love you!  Minute by minute, second by second, I am attentive to all your needs. As you breathe and as your heart beats, I am with you for I will never abandon you."......

Song:  Isaiah 49  

Isaiah 49: 15

Can a woman forget her baby at the breast,
feel no pity for the child she has borne?
Even if these were to forget,
I shall not forget you.

Hail Mary..... 

Rita said:  Jesus appeared in the picture almost the whole rosary and when I sang that song at the end the lights were just flashing all around Him. I would like Marty to tell what she saw during the rosary...... 

Marty said, "Well, Mary, the statue of Our Lady of Fatima, and the picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus were illuminated through the entire rosary. Jesus' lips were moving through most of the rosary.

Rita said:  I saw Mary, Her mouth was moving through the rosary when I would look at Her also..... 

Rita said:  This has been a very special night for us to come. And Jesus has told me for almost two months to come to Florida and I put it off and it just all worked out. It's like if I didn't listen to the promptings, because there is a lot going on in Cincinnati. It's like He just laid this plan out so that I had to go because I wasn't answering the response. So I mean it just all fell into place. And I know that you are called here to hear what He wants you to hear tonight because of the way this all came about. We just have a lot going on up there and I just didn't know how I was going to do this. So He made it available and even this meeting tonight how this happened on such short......

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
$ 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

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
