Genesis 15: 5-12, 17-18  

Then taking him outside, he said, "Look up at the sky and count the stars if you can. Just so will your descendants be," he told him. Abram put his faith in Yahweh and this was reckoned to him as uprightness.

    He then said to him, "I am Yahweh who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldaeans to give you this country as your possession."  "Lord Yahweh," Abram replied, "how can I know that I shall possess it?" He said to him, "Bring me a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old she-goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtledove and a young pigeon." He brought him all these, split the animals down the middle and placed each half opposite the other; but the birds he did not divide. And whenever birds of prey swooped down on the carcases, Abram drove them off.

    Now, as the sun was on the point of setting, a trance fell on Abram, and a deep dark dread descended on him.

When the sun had set and it was dark, there appeared a smoking firepot and a flaming torch passing between the animals' pieces. That day Yahweh made a covenant with Abram in these terms:

    "To your descendants I give this country,
    from the River of Egypt
        to the Great River,

                        the River Euphrates,  


                R. We see the Covenant between God and Abram
                Abraham had faith – Abraham was blessed
                for his faith and obedience –


Philippians 3: 17 - 4: 1

Brothers, be united in imitating me. Keep your eyes fixed on those who act according to the example you have from me. or there are so many people of whom I have often warned you, and now I warn you again with tears in my eyes, who behave like the enemies of Christ’s cross. hey are destined to be lost; their god is the stomach; they glory in what they should think shameful, since their minds are set on earthly things. But our homeland is in heaven and it is from there that we are expecting a Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transfigure the wretched body of ours into the mould of his glorious body, through the working of the power which he has, even to bring all things under his mastery.

So then, my brothers and dear friends whom I miss so much, my joy and my crown, hold firm in the Lord, dear friends.


                R. St. Paul tells the Philippians if
                they are faithful to God, and obey His will,
                they will have salvation and glory,
                citizenship in heaven.

Luke 9: 28-36

   Now about eight days after this had been said, he took with him Peter, John and James and went up the mountain to pray. And it happened that, as he was praying, the aspect of his face was changed and his clothing became sparkling white. And suddenly there were two men talking to him; they were Moses and Elijah appearing in glory, and they were speaking of his passing which he was to accomplish in Jerusalem. Peter and his companions were heavy with sleep, but they woke up and saw his glory and the two men standing with him. As these were leaving him, Peter said to Jesus, ‘Master, it is wonderful for us to be here; so let us make three shelters, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’ He did not know what he was saying. As he was saying this, a cloud came and covered them with shadow; and when they went into the cloud the disciples were afraid. And a voice came from the cloud saying, ‘This is my Son, the Chosen One. Listen to him.’ And after the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. The disciples kept silence and, at that time, told no one what they had seen.


                R. The apostles were asleep –

                Moses and Elijah appeared

                Man doesn't see what God has planned.
                Mary has appeared to me almost 20 years –
                The depth to which we see Jesus' love for
                us in Blue Book 10 can help lead souls to
                renewal and the Reign of the Sacred Heart –
                We can treat God like He doesn't know
                our hearts –

                God knows our hearts –
                God knows our motives –
                God knows the truth –
                We can't fool God –
                God is a just judge –

                Heaven is a reward promised to those
                    who love and serve the Lord –
                    We are here preparing ourselves
                        for heaven –

                Jesus showed us how important
                    Abraham's obedience was –
                    God tested him to see if He would
                    sacrifice his son –

                Jesus showed us obedience to the
                    Father and its importance –
                    He died obeying His Father's
                        will –

                Satan in last Sunday's readings
                    shows us he wanted power –
                    he wanted God to obey Him –

                God's timing is perfect –
                    Satan wants a person to disobey
                        those over them,
                        seek power,
                        discredit authority –

                Lent is a time of prayer and penance –
                    of dying to our will and
                    serving God –
                    Lent is a time of discipline –
                        of conversion of
                        imitating Christ and the
                        cross, obedience to the
                        Father –
                    Carrying our crosses –

                Are our eyes focused on God or are
                    our eyes focused on our will,
                    our power, manipulation,
                    not disciplining ourselves and
                    giving into temptation –

                God help our eyes to be focused on
                    you –

                Jesus wants to pour clean water on
                    us –
                    Jesus wants us to confess our
                        sins and come with a
                        humble, contrite heart –
                    Jesus deserves our love and
                    Jesus wants to fill our hearts
                        with love and outpour
                        His grace to us –

                The selfish person is like a capped bottle
                    Jesus says


John 4: 42, 15

and they said to the woman, ‘Now we believe no longer because of what you told us; we have heard him ourselves and we know that he is indeed the Saviour of the world.’

    ‘Sir,’ said the woman, ‘give me some of that water, so that I may never be thirsty or come here again to draw water.’


                R. The gift Jesus gives is there – people
                    can give into satan and refuse
                    His gift –
                    We can't fool God about our
                        motives –

                Jesus: I have given you 10 Commandments.
                    I am to be first in your life –
                    Focus on Me – it's a commandment
                    Lying is a sin – Lying to those
                        over you –
                    My lesson to you is to study
                        the crucifixion
                    I had enemies –
                    So do you My child - those who
                        are not with Me are against Me –

                To hold out and provoke others to
                    incite anger in another is the cycle
                    of violence –
                    I am love –
                    I am pure and I give Myself for
                        you –

                You can be master over satan or
                    keep serving him –
                    Pray to be freed from any
                        bondage –

                Say "Here I am Lord, I come to
                    do your will"

                I am kind and merciful –

                I tell you to live to bear fruit for
                    My Kingdom –
                    Live prudently –

                R. We see the parable of the fig tree


Luke 13: 7-9

He said to his vinedresser, "For three years now I have been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and finding none. Cut it down: why should it be taking up the ground?" "Sir," the man replied, "leave it one more year and give me time to dig round it and manure it: it may bear fruit next year; if not, then you can cut it down." ’


                R. We are to live Lent in prayer and
                    discipline –
                    discipline our unruly will –

                Jesus Speaks: Purify your hearts –
                    love your God, Do Him homage,
                    not bring down more sin –

                Live in charity – do not let
                    your hearts turn to hate.

                R. Saul disobeyed God –
                Samuel anointed David
                Saul wanted to kill David –

                Not only did Saul block God's
                    plan by his disobedience –
                    in vengeance and anger he
                    decided God's plan should
                    serve his evil heart –

                Saul wanted to block David,
                    kill him for his own
                    disobedience –
                    thereby blocking the important
                    role of David by
                    chasing him and wanting
                    to kill him –

                Saul put himself before God –
                So did Eve –

                When we sin we put ourselves
                    before God –


Ephesians 5: 8-14

You were darkness once, but now you are light in the Lord; behave as children of light, for the effects of the light are seen in complete goodness and uprightness and truth. Try to discover what the Lord wants of you, take no part in the futile works of darkness but, on the contrary, show them up for what they are. The things which are done in secret are shameful even to speak of; but anything shown up by the light will be illuminated and anything illuminated is itself a light. That is why it is said: Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.


John 8: 12

When Jesus spoke to the people again, he said: 
    I am the light of the world; 
    anyone who follows me 
        will not be walking in the dark, 
    but will have the light of life.


                R. Jesus had enemies –
                    the hostility grew in those
                    wanting to kill Jesus –

                Spiritual blindness can be
                    healed by keeping our
                    eyes on Jesus –

                Jesus: Never perform an operation
                out of anger and jealousy opposed
                to God's will –

                    Anger and jealousy, envy
                against a just man is from
                satan –

                    So your decision to oppose God's
                will is based on satan if it
                comes from anger and jealousy –
                based on evil –

                Act according to God's will for you –
                    not because others have
                    done, what you consider,
                    wrong - or they
                    can constantly serve satan by
                    their anger and jealousy and oppose God.

                The Blind Man

                Read John 9: 1, 6-9, 13-17, 34-38

                R. The people failed God and ridiculed
                    the prophets in the Old Testament –
                    we see the blind man –

                They were punished we see
                    because they wouldn't
                    listen to Jeremiah –
                    the Babylonian captivity
                    was their punishment.


Psalm 137: 1-6

By the rivers of Babylon 
we sat and wept 
at the memory of Zion. 
On the poplars there 
we had hung up our harps. 

For there our gaolers had asked us 
to sing them a song, 
our captors to make merry, 
‘Sing us one of the songs of Zion.’ 

How could we sing a song of Yahweh 
on alien soil? 

If I forget you, Jerusalem, 
may my right hand wither! 

May my tongue remain stuck to my palate 
if I do not keep you in mind, 
if I do not count Jerusalem 
the greatest of my joys.


Ephesians 2: 4-10

But God, being rich in faithful love, through the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our sins, brought us to life with Christ—it is through grace that you have been saved—and raised us up with him and gave us a place with him in heaven, in Christ Jesus. 

    This was to show for all ages to come, through his goodness towards us in Christ Jesus, how extraordinarily rich he is in grace. Because it is by grace that you have been saved, through faith; not by anything of your own, but by a gift from God; not by anything that you have done, so that nobody can claim the credit. We are God’s work of art, created in Christ Jesus for the good works which God has already designated to make up our way of life.


                R. God came into this world to
                    save it


John 3: 19-21

    And the judgement is this: 
    though the light has come into the world 
    people have preferred 
    darkness to the light 
    because their deeds were evil. 
    And indeed, everybody who does wrong 
    hates the light and avoids it, 
    to prevent his actions 
        from being shown up; 
    but whoever does the truth 
    comes out into the light, 
    so that what he is doing 
        may plainly appear as done in God.’


2 Corinthians 5: 17-21

So for anyone who is in Christ, there is a new creation: the old order is gone and a new being is there to see. It is all God’s work; he reconciled us to himself through Christ and he gave us the ministry of reconciliation. I mean, God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, not holding anyone’s faults against them, but entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 

    So we are ambassadors for Christ; it is as though God were urging you through us, and in the name of Christ we appeal to you to be reconciled to God. For our sake he made the sinless one a victim for sin, so that in him we might become the uprightness of God.


                R. The meaning of Lent

                We are to die to sin, to ourselves,
                    our selfish ways –

                We see the Gospel of Lazarus
                    toward the end of Lent –

                If we ignore God – it doesn't
                    mean He will go away –

                God wants to put a new heart
                    in us –
                    one like His

                Song: Give Me Your Heart Oh Jesus


Hebrews 5: 7-9

During his life on earth, he offered up prayer and entreaty, with loud cries and with tears, to the one who had the power to save him from death, and, winning a hearing by his reverence, he learnt obedience, Son though he was, through his sufferings; when he had been perfected, he became for all who obey him the source of eternal salvation


John 12: 20- 33

Jesus foretells his death and subsequent glorification

Among those who went up to worship at the festival were some Greeks. These approached Philip, who came from Bethsaida in Galilee, and put this request to him, ‘Sir, we should like to see Jesus.’ Philip went to tell Andrew, and Andrew and Philip together went to tell Jesus.

Jesus replied to them:

Now the hour has come
for the Son of man to be glorified.
In all truth I tell you,
unless a wheat grain falls into the earth
   and dies,
it remains only a single grain;
but if it dies
it yields a rich harvest.
Anyone who loves his life loses it;
anyone who hates his life in this world
will keep it for eternal life.
Whoever serves me, must follow me,
and my servant will be with me
   wherever I am.
If anyone serves me,
   my Father will honour him.
Now my soul is troubled.
What shall I say:
Father, save me from this hour?
But it is for this very reason
   that I have come to this hour.
Father, glorify your name!

A voice came from heaven, ‘I have glorified it, and I will again glorify it.’
The crowd standing by, who heard this, said it was a clap of thunder; others said, ‘It was an angel speaking to him.’ Jesus answered, ‘It was not for my sake that this voice came, but for yours.

‘Now sentence is being passed
   on this world;
now the prince of this world
   is to be driven out.
And when I am lifted up from the earth,
I shall draw all people to myself.’

By these words he indicated the kind of death he would die.


                Jesus: Remember the Babylonian
                    captivity –
                    Return to Me with all
                        your hearts –

                R. Jesus regards sin as so serious –
                So serious is sin –
                    Jesus died for our sins

                Jesus: A person who chooses sin and
                    continues in it without recognizing
                    their sin goes deeper and deeper
                    into darkness and
                    spiritual blindness –
                    does not have
                        "Right Reasoning"

                R. God is above –
                We are creatures - God is the Creator –

                He commands we keep the

                Religious take the vow of
                    obedience to their superiors

                Jesus showed us about obedience

                Say Our Father

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. Adam and Eve's sin caused

                God wants order according
                    to His Plan

                Jesus: I have given this Movement
                    to help in the renewal
                    of the Church and the world –

                Because of the sin of Adam and Eve
                    death made it's entrance into
                    human history – 'return to the ground'
                    Men see with distorted vision
                    Men see God with distorted vision
                    Men see others with distorted vision
                    Men see themselves with distorted vision

                R. We must seek to see through the eyes of God.
                What does God want us to do?
                We don't give into sinful habits –
                Habits we overlook because we don't
                    want to change and hurt everyone
                    around us rebelling against God.

                We have a free will

                We must admit our sins and tell God we are
                    sorry –

                What does God want –

                Because of original sin we have
                    a fallen human nature –

                There is seeking of dominance for dominance sake,
                    blaming, tension between
                    men and women.
                    There are tendencies of lust, greed,
                        jealousies, envy, anger,
                        pride, slothfulness, gluttony.

                God wants holiness –
                    not rebellion 


                R. The law of God is to be in
                    our hearts –


                Pope John Paul II says –
                    Do what God wants –
                    Live to Love Jesus
                    Live to do God's will in love.



                From Blue Book 10

January 10, 1996 - 9:00am at Mass

Emptying Yourself is the Only Way

R. Jesus gave Himself as the greatest sacrifice ever, totally emptying Himself. They pierced His Heart and what flowed out was blood and water. When we love Him we empty ourselves more and more and identify with Jesus' sacrifice of offering Himself. I realized how I was to empty myself because I love Him so much.

    In the Psalm of the Good Shepherd, it says, .."And I will dwell in the courts of the Lord for years to come." My whole desire is to be united with Him in deepest union forever, our lives have meaning in this.

    With all my heart I offer myself as a sacrifice for the spread of the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary and Their intentions. My whole consuming desire is for this intention of giving myself to God, to use me as you want to, according to the Father's Plan.

    Such love for the Father, giving myself to Him, imperfect as I am, but such great love for Him. The Gospel was about the Father - this overwhelmed me with love for Him, seeing how He is one with Jesus, but knowing Him as My beloved Father. Great joy in this oneness with God. I love the Trinity - I love each Person of the Trinity, I love God.

    I want to give the greatest love to God. The greatest love I can give is in emptying myself - it is in sacrifice wanting the Father's will for me. My great love for Him compels me to see no alternative. I love Him so much. I give myself freely without counting the cost. There is not another way.

    In my overwhelming love for Him I totally empty myself and realizing there is not another way, for to love Him is to give myself to Him as He desires.

    The greatest gift I can give to others is giving myself to Him. Jesus emptied Himself. I understand more, emptying myself with all my heart. Wanting to love Him more, I learn to empty myself, pray for self-lessness.

    We are to love Him with all our heart, all our soul, all our being. Our greatest desire is God's will. We should love to be united to Him in deepest union for all eternity, there is not a choice. It takes giving of oneself, emptying oneself to Him and giving great love to others.

    It is in the Mass we give the greatest love to God as we join in this sacrifice with His Son, Jesus. The Mass, offered through the hands of the priest, to the Father.

    Jesus emptied Himself and gave His all. In the Mass the sacrifice of Calvary is sacramentally made present. We unite, we die to our selfish ways. When the priest raises up the Host and says, "This is My Body", the Father looks down and sees the sacrifice of His Son. We unite and give ourselves, give our all, offer ourselves, as a sacrifice to the Father, united to Jesus. When the priest raises up the chalice and says, "This is My Blood", we give ourselves - we empty ourselves, and we want to die to all that is not like Him, to live more in Him. Jesus feeds us with His Body and His Blood and He gives to us the "Bread of Life."

    He tells us, "I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me shall not be hungry." Look at the world. Look at the hungry souls. Jesus gives Himself to us, to feed us. He feeds us with His very own Body and Blood.

    As we unite in this Holy Sacrifice all over the world all day we can unite to the Mass. We see the Body and Blood of Christ raised and elevated in our hearts, we unite every moment of the day in our self-sacrificing gift of our love, given to God.

    We die to our ways not like Jesus and offer ourselves united to Jesus as a sacrifice to the Father. We receive an outpouring of His grace – His life more and more in abundance. All through the day make spiritual communions and unite to this gift of Himself given in the Holy Eucharist. The greatest gift of our love is to empty ourselves and give ourselves to God.

 R. This offering continues all day in all our actions, if we unite them to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We offer ourselves as a sacrifice. We die with Him, that we will raise to new life more and more in Him. Our every action is an offering with Jesus, His Son, to the Father in the Holy Spirit.

    This is our continual love, given to God and to all men, as we unite in this our offering. Whatever we do, if it is the Will of the Father, we are offering a great act of love to God.

    Through Him, With Him, and In Him, I die with Jesus and unite in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

Special Moments in the Mass:

    Let us celebrate the Mystery of God's love. Let us open our hearts to the graces He gives us that we may understand more fully the great gift of the Mass. Jesus Christ gives Himself to us. Who are we that God gave Himself as a sacrifice on the cross for love of us and the sacrifice of Calvary is sacramentally made present in the Mass, all over the world all day.

    Help us to receive graces to understand more fully this Divine Mystery of God's love and to treasure the gift of Himself, given to us in the Holy Eucharist.

    The world is so hungry, waiting to be fed and He comes with a kind and gentle Heart and gives us the gift of Himself. The world is looking for the perfect love affair. Jesus gives Himself to us and we give ourselves to Him in the deepest act of intimate love in the Mass.

    When the priest mixes the drop of water with the wine and says, "let us share in the Divinity of Christ, who humbled Himself to share in our humanity." Think of this God who gives us a sharing in His life.

    The first miracle at Cana was when God changed water into wine. How great it would be to witness this miracle. How much greater is the gift of the Mass when, through the hands of the priest, bread is changed into the Body of Christ and wine is changed into His Blood.

    I pray the priest raises high the consecrated host that I may love this gift more and more in the Mass, that I may see the great love of God, more and more. Let's spread this message about the intimate love of God at Mass.

    I want to adore His Body and adore His Blood, and to offer my all – my body, my blood, to the Father.

    Every word of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is so beautiful. Let us savor these special words of greatest love.

    I see the hands of the priest as so sacred. He is so sacred and chosen by God. Such dignity and love should be given to the priest!


January 11, 1996

R. Last night at Mass I had such an experience at St. Gertrude's. I was overwhelmed with offering myself united to Jesus as a sacrifice to the Father, in the Holy Spirit.

    They surrounded Him and cried "crucify Him". He carried the cross and offered no resistance.

    I realized, to have a love relationship with God, an intimate love relationship, there must be self giving on my part. I must give myself! An intimate act is the giving of each person to the other.

    I am overwhelmed in wanting to give myself to God. I am filled with this great grace and all I see is Him and His magnificence and I want to give Him my all.

    The more I give, the more intimate the act, the more I empty myself, the more intimate the act between Him and me. The more I give of myself, the deeper the intimacy.

    Yesterday I had a good day, realizing how He is truly with me and attentive to me at every second.

    I recognize it as a sharing in His Passion and He is in control. I accept the cross and seek to live His life, death and resurrection in my life. I am giving myself to Him.

    I see my wretchedness, in this self-giving. How far I am from being like Him! I realize the Holy Spirit will have to change me to be more like Jesus.

    Mary conceived Jesus in her womb through the power of the Holy Spirit.


January 13, 1996 - 8:30am

There are 3 Persons in One God

R. I felt as if I couldn't breathe. I realized the Father's love and how He is one with Jesus and I receive the Almighty God in Communion. Deep connection in surrendering to Him as the little, dependent child, and realizing His immense oneness with Jesus. To know I receive the Almighty God, I realize the love between Father and Son and the Holy Spirit. I realize the presence of God in the Eucharist and my overwhelming desire to empty myself, that I may be deeper in union with God, my total desire being this deep union with God for all eternity.

    And, He reached down and in that moment I beheld God before my eyes, the Almighty, never changing, presence of God and my heart was in immense peace and awe for to know Him, to be saturated with His love, is to possess your heart's desire.

    Alleluia, God loves His people!


January 14, 1996 - 1:20am

What Are You Doing?

R. I was standing in the laundry by the dryer and felt the Lord asking me what I was doing and told me to go to bed. I knew He was there, the same as if He was standing there, and I was afraid: I fear the Lord - He is Almighty!

    I was in awe. He told me to come and pray and be with Him. Even feeling His presence as I did, I wanted to continue to do more things and make Him wait.

    I was aware of myself and He came from nowhere and it shocked me. I heard Him say, "what are you doing". He was standing in the doorway.


January 14, 1996 - 8:30 Mass

Love God, Love Others

R. I spent so much time tending to my life, being with others and I feel it takes me from Him and I want so much to be with Him and love Him and felt Him telling me that I must love Him in all others, see all the good things they do, see their unique beauty and with all the love I have for Him - pour it out to them. The world needs this love.

    This is how He loves the world through us. I love Him so much and He loves me so much that in my burning desire to give my love to Him, I see the reflection of Him in them and pour out my burning love to them. We are one body in Him. In loving others, I am loving Him.

    Love God - Love one another. The love of God flows into love of everyone. It cannot be disconnected, it is all one. We are all one. He is the Head, we are the members of His body.

    I long and thirst for You, my God. I give my love to You in others. Love flows as a bubbling brook. It doesn't stop and start - Love IS!

    My love is not separate. His love and love for others - it is all one. My burning love for Him compels me to love all His creatures. Anything to do with Him, I love because I love Him so much.


January 15, 1996

R. Even when I do not see you, you are so present, Lord. You are with me always - always there. I offered myself entirely to Him. I suffered so much since Friday about some things relating to others. I didn't get to pray much and that is what I love the most at those times with Him. I need Him and I miss Him when I feel distant from Him. I love Him so much.

    My body hurt all day yesterday. Friday night I had pains in my hands and feet. Yesterday I had pains in my right hand and chills, feeling sick. My hands have a constant ache. I had pains in my left foot most of the morning, but my body - how it hurt, hurt to move, my legs hurt when I stood and I felt as if I wouldn't walk or stand anymore because my legs hurt so much. I wanted to relieve the pain.

    I see more to love Him is to want to suffer with Him. Friday night when my feet and hands hurt, it was a constant realization of His presence with me.

    The more I am one with Jesus - the more I know the Presence of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. To have the presence of Jesus is to have the presence of God.

    It is because of the suffering pain I feel so close to Him now, after the Eucharist. I am close to Him when I suffer.

    When I am in pain, I can be in that inner room with Him. My left foot and my body really hurt. Yesterday I could hardly bend my knees. Right now my right foot hurts too, but it is as the pains - you experience the pain but you cannot touch it or press on it. I am just experiencing it at this moment - my left hand hurts and my right foot.


January 16, 1996

R. We become one in Him. He lives in us in this world. He acts through us. We live to serve God do His work. This world is godless. Many today have turned their backs on God. Many times His name is used in vain and not spoken with the reverence He deserves.

    Jesus wants to dwell in our hearts. God communicates to us in our hearts. We go to the world and interact, but we go to our hearts to listen to His direction.

    If we spent days being in the world and do not take time to be alone with Him, we can get our answers from others and the world. We need time to sort out all the fragmented pieces we have collected in our lives and ask God's plan for us. God can communicate to us, also, through others, but we need time every day alone to listen to God. We need to spend time alone with God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit everyday. We need to hear the message what God uniquely wants to give to us about our life.

    Jesus says, "I am the vine, you are the branches." If the branches do not receive their nourishment from the vine, they wither and die. No two branches are the same, each one uniquely different. To bear fruit they must be nourished well.

    Our job is to spread the Kingdom of God - This is our calling, this takes knowing God's Plan for us. We can be busy and not do God's will and cause more confusion doing busy work. Do God's will. Pray to know it. Am I too busy to be alone with God?

    If I run down the wrong road at the fastest pace, if I spin my wheels in a rut, nothing is accomplished. When I am one with Him, He operates. His way is not speed, His way is precision. His way is right. His way is the way.

    When we do not go to God as our source we can be too busy doing the wrong thing. The devil is able to direct us to do things in haste. We must be rooted in God. The devil is paralyzing: his work is our mind. He fills us with pride, anger, envy, gluttony, and our starved souls can begin to wither. So as you are in your heart, you will be in this world.

    How can you speak from your heart when all you know is your own will? The mind must be in conjunction with the heart, the heart rooted in God. As a nurtured branch, a heart filled with His grace operates on His Plan.

    The mind, when the devil influences it, acts with vice many times: pride, anger, lust, gluttony, envy.

    The mind and the heart must be rooted in Him. We do not have a right to judge others, to make ourselves better than others. We have so many faults of our own. Spiritual directors and those in authority are to correct as God wants them to. We must stay rooted to the vine. We must have time alone with God. Our mind is to be united to God's Plan for us and we are to work for right reasoning, pray for right reasoning.

    We must have time with God to have a heart rooted in God - every day, time alone with God. Love is giving. We need peace in our homes - we need to consecrate ourselves and our homes to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart.

    I want to be with God before the tabernacle. Here at Immaculata Church I came in and saw Jesus again transfigured. I just wanted to be with God, to be alone and to be so one with Him. I am in awe of Him. I just love Him so much. I have been here three hours and I am so sad I only have one hour left. For the past three days I was unable to be here. I just long and want to know more about Him and be with Him and pray each word of each prayer so slowly and ponder it.

    I have had pains, especially in my left foot and my hands. My body aches and my knees feel as if I don't want to walk. I just want to love Him so much. I love Him - I love Him - I love Him.


January 17, 1996

R. These wounds hurt our beloved Savior, when some betrayed their friendship with God to do evil. Jesus is our friend. Sometimes more than one person treated Jesus with disrespect and criticism.

    To live Christ's life in our life, to live His death, to share in His sufferings, this is the greatest gift of all. We walk the walk, not knowing the great gift He is outpouring and allowing us to suffer to know Him more and share in His life.

    I know today what He gives me is to teach me lessons that I may be more like Him. The hardest thing, it seems to me, is to be mistreated by several friends.

    I show the world the Jesus that lives within. I want to be a light. People act according to how deeply united they are to God. All different levels. To be like Him we must die to all that is not like Him and beg for the grace to be made holy.

    I want to be like Jesus. To do this I must be willing to look at my faults, see my sins, my weaknesses, the way I am not like Him.

    I love God so much. The statue was transfigured and He had on different garments. I realized His humanity.


January 17, 1996

R. There is so little love given this day. We can seek to receive and not give. We can seek others to fill us when only God can. Love is giving. Love takes time. God is the source of all love and so few have time to spend with Him and learn as He teaches the mysteries of His love.

    How can we love one another when we do not have time for God, who is love? We can be too busy to care, too busy to love, too busy to be Christ-like to others.

    We were created in the image and likeness of God, but are we acting like Him?

    Could we see Jesus talk about one another without love? Could we see Jesus rush by and not have time for anyone? Jesus came to give, He came to love, He came to serve.

    The world has made its end here and God speaks of the Kingdom to come. Open your hearts and you will know the mystery of His love.


January 20, 1996 - After Communion

Jesus:  My beloved priests:

    I love you with the deepest love. Many of you are going through motions. Your hearts are cold and you have turned yourselves to the things of this world.

    I came to you with a kind and loving heart and I am rejected by My beloved chosen ones.

    I call you to love, to a deep love affair with Me. How My Heart bleeds for the indifference and coldness of many of My priests.

    I call you to love – to giving of yourselves, to consecration to My Heart and the heart of My Mother.

    I suffered so through My Passion, but My greatest agony was from the coldness and lack of love I received from My beloved priests.

    I beg you, My child, to speak to My priests, to speak to all who will listen about My burning love. I give to you great graces that you may deliver the messages of Our love for this world.

    I will shelter you in My Heart and lead you on your way to speak to the religious about the Mass.

    I call you to speak and to sing My songs of love.

    How I love you. I have chosen you. I am asking for your selflessness to respond to My request. Speak – I speak in you. Love, Jesus


January 21, 1996 - 6:00 a.m.

Jesus: How My Heart ached for the rejection of those I loved so dearly, some of My beloved priests and religious. I am espoused to them in a special way, and I am treated with such disrespect and irreverence by many of them. They wear the titles, "Father" and "Sister" and do not even come to Me.

    It is being loved by an unfaithful spouse. They are busy for their own self-gratification and have forgotten the great title I have bestowed on them.

    They do not see how favored they are by Me, the Almighty God. They seek their love from all other sources.

    How it offends My aching Heart! The thorns that surround My Heart pierced deeply because of the indifference of some of My beloved priests and sisters.

    It is through their love I give such love to My flock and the devil has led them astray. My flock is withering and dying in their hearts for many of My chief shepherds have gone astray.

    I beg, beg, beg you to speak to the priests and religious, to spread My Second Blue Book to all priests. Do not worry about the funds. My flock is dying from within. Their hearts have shriveled within their chest. They go through motions.

    Do the priests stand before the people and preach the love of God from their hearts or from their mouths?

    The love given to Me from My religious is so shallow. I am rejected entirely by many, yet they continue to administer the Sacraments and carry their titles. They do not realize the great honor that is given to them!

    You suffer the pains in My Heart for My beloved religious. The rejection, the busyness, the lack of love – how this offends My tender Heart.

    The religious are My chosen ones. I picked them and gave them My tenderest love. Some have hearts that have turned to ice.

    The priest is the key to spreading the messages of My burning love in the Church. Many speak without emotion for in their hearts they are dead. They do not fill their own hearts with the love of God. They try to fill their hearts with the world and speak about the love of God.

    I lament the lack of love from My chosen priests. The families come, the hungry souls come to be fed and many priests do not feed their hunger.

    I love, I love so deeply My beloved religious. I cry out to spread these messages of My burning love.

    They are going through motions. My beloved flock comes to My altar with cold hearts. Many priests are cold in their hearts. The world is cold in their heart. The families that go to church are not being fed with messages of My burning love.

    Mass after Mass, after Mass is said lacking emotion. Where are the hearts that empty themselves? Please circulate the messages about the Mass. When will the time be right?

    I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Unless the messages of My burning love are transmitted in the Church the bloodshed will continue. Your Church bears the marks of sin and suffering. My love, burning and on fire is the mighty medicine for the sick world and the Church. I beg you to circulate these messages on the Mass and the rosary. I am Jesus. My souls are hungry and begging to be fed.

    Pray for the priests as never before. Satan has waged a war against the priesthood. Priests and religious need to have a devotion to My Sacred Heart and My Mother's Immaculate Heart. Until hearts are consecrated to Our Hearts there will not be peace in the world. Consecrate your homes and your hearts to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. 

    I love with the deepest burning love. I want hearts that love Me with a deep, burning love. Come to Me and I will teach you about love. Go to the world and you will be taught the things of the world. The hearts of many of the members of My Church have turned cold. Give them the messages of My burning love! Little children need to know how I love them! What good is it for a man to run down a road that leads nowhere?

    I am the Way. I am the only way. Life is not life if it is not rooted in Me.    





Please pray for Gene, Dan, Beth, Doris,
Amanda, Betty, Adeline, Jimmy, Andrew,
Monsignor and all the people.

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

Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual. The Shepherds of Christ has prayer chapters all over the world praying for the priests, the Church and the world. These prayers that Father Carter compiled in the summer of 1994 began this worldwide network of prayer. Currently the prayers are in eight languages with the Church’s Imprimatur. We have prayed daily for the priests, the Church, and the world since 1994. Associates are called to join prayer Chapters and help us circulate the newsletter centered on spreading devotion to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart and helping to renew the Church through greater holiness.

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
