"Come Back to Me" 


                Jesus: I thank you for saying "yes" to
                Me. I am Jesus. Let My love
                surround you as you know My
                love. I have called you to commit
                yourself to Me and to serve Me and
                to know My love that surrounds

                    I am loving you now — Feel
                the peace of knowing I am with
                you. Do not give into satan to
                get you in an old routine of
                unfaithfulness to Me —

                    Let love rule your heart, now,
                and in suffering — In boredom
                don't listen to satan who
                wants you to give in. Carry
                My picture with you, the
                Prayer for Union.

                    I am with you, I love you,
                I want peace and love even
                in boredom and suffering.
                You should not feel lonely,
                know I never leave you.

                    I am your God — You do not
                want to offend Me, your beloved —
                focus on your love for Me —

                    Be grateful to God for
                choosing you, so important to
                His plan.

                    Serve Me willingly with
                love — I want this.

                    When you are tempted,
                stop, take a walk, rest, pray,
                read the Blue Book, use the
                Mary water — Go before the
                tabernacle —

                Live to be ever united to Me —
                So you can say as St. Paul —


Galatians 2: 19-20

...I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me.


                Jesus: Reach out in love to Me —
                Your Spouse, as you have never
                done before —

                    Be about our Love Affair.
                It is this that powers you —
                You are the Spouse of Jesus —
                I wait for you like a doting
                Mother, one who loves you
                so very much — I want
                your love —

                Surrender — Come to Me now —
                Spread My Blue Books,
                My letters of love —
                Use My Blue Books —
                all day —
                Be soldiers for Christ —

                Pray for grace to be courageous —
                Pray in faith that I hear
                your heartfelt prayers —

                Be of the heart —
                Save this message —
                Read it often —
                Make it a rule in your life —
                Love your brothers —
                Wash yourselves clean —
                Be clean of heart —
                Don't disobey Me —
                Don't rebel against a God
                    so good to you —
                "Come back to Me with all
                    your heart"
                "Come back to Me with all
                    your heart"
                "Come back to Me with all
                    your heart"

                Song: Hosea

                Jesus: Do the will of God in love —
                Don't rebel against God's will
                    for you —

                Change your heart —
                Change your bad habits —

                Admit the truth about your
                    sins —

                Go to confession —
                Ask to be forgiven —
                Vow to not sin again —

                Put Me first —

                When you put someone else
                    before Me — you have
                    a problem —

                Love Me with your whole
                    heart, your whole soul,
                    your whole being —

                Put Me first in your life —

                I am God —
                Be grateful
                Use My Blue Books,
                Open anywhere,
                Carry My Picture next to
                    your heart —

                You love Me — don't
                    give into satan in
                    unloving ways —

                A man puts money in the bank
                    so he has savings —

                Store up treasures each day
                    to give to your heavenly
                    Father who created
                    you with a purpose —

                I love you —
                I want you to do My work —
                Say "yes"
                Say "thanks"
                Come to Me

                Sing: Hosea

                Readings from yesterday


Hosea 14: 2-10

Israel, come back to Yahweh your God
your guilt was the cause of your downfall.
Provide yourself with words
and come back to Yahweh.
Say to him, ‘Take all guilt away
and give us what is good,
instead of bulls we will dedicate to you
    our lips.
Assyria cannot save us,
we will not ride horses any more,
or say, “Our God!”
    to our own handiwork,
for you are the one
    in whom orphans find compassion.’

I shall cure them of their disloyalty,
I shall love them with all my heart,
for my anger has turned away from them.
I shall fall like dew on Israel,
he will bloom like the lily
and thrust out roots
    like the cedar of Lebanon;
he will put out new shoots,
he will have the beauty of the olive tree
and the fragrance of Lebanon.
They will come back to live in my shade;
they will grow wheat again,
they will make the vine flourish,
their wine will be as famous as Lebanon’s.
What has Ephraim to do with idols
    any more
when I hear him and watch over him?
I am like an evergreen cypress,
you owe your fruitfulness to me.

Concluding admonition

Let the wise understand these words,
let the intelligent grasp their meaning,
for Yahweh’s ways are straight
and the upright will walk in them,
but sinners will stumble.


Psalm 81: 6-11, 14, 17

'I freed his shoulder from the burden,
his hands were able to lay aside the labourer's basket.
You cried out in your distress, so I rescued you.

'Hidden in the storm, I answered you,
I tested you at the waters of Meribah.           Pause
Listen, my people, while I give you warning;
Israel, if only you would listen to me!

'You shall have no strange gods,
shall worship no alien god.
I, Yahweh, am your God,
who brought you here from Egypt,
you have only to open your mouth for me to fill it.

 'My people would not listen to me,
Israel would have none of me.

at one stroke I would subdue their enemies,
turn my hand against their opponents.


Mark 12: 28b - 34

One of the scribes who had listened to them debating appreciated that Jesus had given a good answer and put a further question to him, ‘Which is the first of all the commandments? Jesus replied, ‘This is the first: Listen, Israel, the Lord our God is the one, only Lord, and you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: You must love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these. The scribe said to him, ‘Well spoken, Master; what you have said is true, that he is one and there is no other. To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and strength, and to love your neighbour as yourself, this is far more important than any burnt offering or sacrifice. Jesus, seeing how wisely he had spoken, said, ‘You are not far from the kingdom of God.’ And after that no one dared to question him any more.


                Song: A Song from Jesus

                Song: In My Heart



Prayer for Union with Jesus

Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

                R. St. Patrick's Day

                Lord have mercy on us we
                    have sinned —

                Jesus is our King —

                Oh God help us to be renewed —

                Thanks to God for all
                    His gifts to us —

                Proclaim God's marvelous
                    deeds to all the earth —

                I call upon God to hear my
                    prayer — to answer Me — for
                    I am your servant, Lord —

                Proclaim God's marvelous deeds —

                    Oh God thank You for all You
                        have given to me —

                    Oh Lord hear my prayer
                        outpour your grace
                        to me —


1 Peter 4: 7-13

The end of all things is near, so keep your minds calm and sober for prayer. Above all preserve an intense love for each other, since love covers over many a sin. Welcome each other into your houses without grumbling. Each one of you has received a special grace, so, like good stewards responsible for all these varied graces of God, put it at the service of others. If anyone is a speaker, let it be as the words of God, if anyone serves, let it be as in strength granted by God; so that in everything God may receive the glory, through Jesus Christ, since to him alone belong all glory and power for ever and ever. Amen.


                R. Praise to God — I love You, God —
                Glory to You God —
                We love You —
                We worship You —


Luke 18: 9-11

He spoke the following parable to some people who prided themselves on being upright and despised everyone else, ‘Two men went up to the Temple to pray, one a Pharisee, the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood there and said this prayer to himself, "I thank you, God, that I am not grasping, unjust, adulterous like everyone else, and particularly that I am not like this tax collector here. I fast twice a week; I pay tithes on all I get." The tax collector stood some distance away, not daring even to raise his eyes to heaven; but he beat his breast and said, "God, be merciful to me, a sinner." This man, I tell you, went home again justified; the other did not. For everyone who raises himself up will be humbled, but anyone who humbles himself will be raised up.’


                R. All communities start with
                    a few —

                From Adam and Eve came all
                    these people —

                God told Adam and Eve to increase
                    and multiply

                There have been love and unity and
                    wars and division among men —

                And if a community is still existing
                    we want it to be a community
                    in love of God —

                Not an evil community brought
                    out of hatred or anarchy
                    or selfishness —

                We are challenged to give of ourselves
                    as we meditate on what Jesus
                    did for us, in giving Himself
                    to bring the life of resurrection
                    to us —

                It is unity and love God wants —

                It is leaders that defend the faith —
                    that live by the truth that God
                    wants —

                It is Mary who appeared as Our Lady of Clearwater
                    in Florida calling us to purity
                    and praying with her as our
                    Immaculate Spiritual Mother —

                R. Oh Lord hear our prayer we pray —

                Consecrate your lives to the Sacred Heart
                    and Immaculate Heart



                R. Oh God let us be in one voice proclaiming
                    the works of the Lord —

                Let the sea be the beauty God
                    intends —

                Let our hearts be pure as Our Lady of Clearwater
                    wants us to be, her holy children —

                Mary is our Mother —

                Sing: Hail Mary Gentle Woman

                Sing: Glory Be

                Sing Song: Glory and Praise to our God

                R. The Spirit of the Lord rests on me —
                    He wants me to be holy —

                Come Holy Spirit, Come and fill me —

                Dear God incline my heart
                    to do Your will in love —

                Oh God grant us mercy, we praise and
                    thank You for Your goodness

                Oh God free us from the hands of
                    our enemies that we may serve
                    You with love and
                    give witness to Thee —

                Jesus: Oh My child —
                    a man who bullies is a man
                    hurting himself, another and
                    the community

                A means of trying to control
                    is striking fear in
                    people for a person's own
                    vain control —

                Holding out and then using silence —
                    lack of communication
                    hopelessness over just
                    doing what one needs for existence

                Striking fear, threatening people's
                    homes, businesses for
                    vain power-over

                Addiction to power can be as
                    addiction for a person as addiction
                    to sex, alcohol etc. —

                A person can be addicted to
                    excitement in using violence
                    and abuse to keep things unresolved
                    in turmoil, having a war, a cold silent war,
                    division for a person seeking power-over
                    or several seeking vain
                    power-over and control.


                Threatening others with what they
                    need for life.

                For their own need of addiction
                    to control and to have power —

                A person serving others, serving God —
                    wants a solution to build God's Kingdom

                The evil one can press on an abuser
                    who is triggered to
                    go into a routine to threaten —
                        a routine to provoke with
                        the intention of making
                        the just man so provoked by
                        measures to lose control —

                The reward for the abuser is when they have abused
                    to have a climax, where they provoke
                    abuse to a just-man to try to make the
                    other lose control —

                Then the abuser can walk away with clean hands
                    and say "Look at him"
                    PASSIVE - AGGRESSIVE ATTACK

                This is the abusers reward — to have
                    power-over and joy of
                    punishing just-authority — power-over,
                    the abuser wanting to abuse, provoke to
                        have a climax to make the
                        innocent person, the just-man
                        lose control at their hands.

                The abuser has a reward then of
                    power: watching the others trying to make the other
                    fall apart and, the abuser
                    then can go through the honey-moon
                    cycle —
                   The abuser says "I will be good —
                    I am sorry —"

                But they got a climax trying to provoke the
                    other to lose control!

                The innocent believe they are contrite!

                 HONEY-MOON CYCLE

                This lasts about 24-48 hours
                (this becomes shorter and shorter as abuse
                    grows more and more advanced)

                Then the abuse cycle begins again —

                The abuser holding out, provoking
                    until they get another climax
                    (Red Fog, Silence, Anger, War)

                The abuser doesn't intend to change —
                    he is addicted to power, abuse,
                    control and he wants this
                    excitement to feel —
                    to watch another lose control
                        at their hands —
                    He does what he can to make the climax
                        worse and worse —
                    An abuser doesn't change unless he wants to —
                    They keep working the cycle

                Being addicted to power and
                    control becomes worse and
                    worse —

                To try to make others lose control
                    the stakes they use become
                    more and more threatening and evil —

                Most of their life is used in
                    holding out to get the other
                    to be under their power —

                The honey-moon cycle becomes less and less —

                Advanced abusers can skip a honey-moon
                    cycle - entirely —
                    they never come clean —
                    They are addicted like one to alcohol,
                        drugs, sex —

                Life for the abuser becomes a
                    pretense on the outside —
                    acting like they are normal,
                    clean cut, nice, oh they are so nice —

                Inside holding someone they
                    abuse at bay, with this cycle of abuse
                    treating them with disgust and disrespect —
                    lying to themselves for power
                    and control — telling themselves
                    they deserve to abuse,
                    control and have power —

                They justify they own this right to
                    control and abuse the other,
                    the group!

                I created men in My image and likeness —

                The purpose of each man's life is
                    a unique purpose to contribute
                    to the plan of salvation —

                Working uniquely in unity —

                A person who is justifying they can
                    abuse others for power and control
                    will not change unless they
                    work under My rules of love and the
                    respect I want them to give to their neighbors —

                Who is the abuser!

                They are people who are addicted to
                    power and control against God's
                    will — They have rebelled

                They have not loved themselves or they
                    would not abuse others —

                The purpose of one's life is to
                    love God above all things —

                Like all addictions, a person, addicted
                    to power has a trigger —
                    why they drink,
                    why they abuse,
                    why they give into sex outside of marriage
                    they are triggered and
                    they give into a routine and
                    there is a pleasure they receive—
                    these have become very
                        bad habits —

                There is a routine, they lie to themselves
                    about what they are doing
                    And there is a reward they have —
                    an abuser wants the other to
                        lose control, they get
                        a high, a sadistic feeling
                        of winning over —
                        Satan is in this evil —

                The abuser in earlier stages
                    seek the honey-moon cycle —
                    they want to be forgiven and
                    Give the "I'm sorry cycle"

                "The false promises"

                As soon as they are forgiven
                    by the person abused —
                They begin the same cycle
                    again —

                Provoking to build the next
                    climax that becomes more
                    and more vicious to
                    act this way toward his brother —

                The abuser is addicted to this
                    cycle and is not at peace —
                    Their constant state is
                        turmoil, division,
                        anger, jealousy,
                        envy, power, control toward the person abused.
                   They seek power-over for
                        powers sake and vain control — 



                R. A person can be helped with addictions
                    using a 12 step-program.
                   Alcoholics Anonymous
                   Drug Addicts

                  12 step programs will tell you about the word HALT.
                  A person can be triggered for any of the following
                  HALT  (1) they are Hungry
                              (2) they are Angry
                              (3) they are Lonely
                              (4) they are Tired

                It is a roller coaster
                    to live with an abuser who
                    directs their anger on another —

                The red fog of the abuser can
                    become so thick from them
                    holding out in power
                    against people who need
                    things they hold out on —

                Jesus: They abused Me and put Me to death

                They whipped Me —

                They said they had power,
                    but power comes from God
                    not from unloving, sick,
                    power seeking men.

                They whipped Me —
                Stripped Me of My garments and
                Crowned Me with thorns —
                They put Me to death —


                Jesus: They crucified Peter up-side down —
                They cut off Paul's head —
                They cut off the head of John the Baptist —

                St. Thomas More lost his head —

                All of these martyrs speak to
                    you today

                The abusers
                    you do not know —

                The Church was strengthened
                    by the blood of the
                    saints who followed
                    in My footprints —

                Life is short, My chosen ones —
                    here today —
                    gone tomorrow —

                Jeremiah suffered —
                Joseph's brothers sold him as
                    a slave

                Cain killed Abel

                Every community began with
                    men faithful to God —

                Businesses are to promote
                    God's Kingdom —

                Countries are to serve God —

                I keep you in existence —

                I am love —

                A few years on earth —
                    compared to eternity
               Love your brothers

                I am a just God —                 

                When you go to bed today
                    you cannot live this day

                There is the 10 Commandments
                    live by them —

                This is what you did to Mary's image

The Building of the Two Hearts


1. A gentleman from Florida called and said since he got the Fatima Statue with glass his life has been transformed. 3/3/2009

2. After using the Jesus water, pain and non-movement (for 3 years) in my fingers was healed instantly. Now fingers are cracking and working and no pain. Has taken x-rays. 10-19-2008

3. Ruptured ACL Ligament and PCL ligament left leg (knee) and damaged meniscus. 3-4 weeks excruciating pain. MRI showed damaged ligaments - went to do surgery and scopes revealed no damage other than meniscus injury. Day before surgery we came here to pray for healing. Wife anointed knee with Jesus water. Were told prior to surgery that would be out of work 3-6 months and surgery would be 4 hours. Surgery was only 40 minutes and recovery time is 1-2 weeks.  8/13/2008

4. My best friend (a couple) was granted a son, which now is my godson. They've been married for a long time but never had a child until they both came to see the Virgin Mary's image.  8/4/2007

5. I just wanted to tell you we have had so many prayers answered most especially since we have had the image statue in our home a few months ago. Prayers being miraculously answered for our children & grandchildren, our daughter's heart has literally almost healed ... she is also pregnant and that is also a miracle that she carried the baby this far, she is so thankful and also her cardiologist can't figure out how she is doing so well, and even agreed with her it must be prayers being said for her. He also told her in her 4th month to abort the baby, maybe he will have a conversion, we hope. Others in my family have changed since we got the statue. They are more understanding and patient and love being a Catholic more than ever before ...We thank Jesus, Mary, Rita and you all. Praise all of heaven. We are also so eager to have many more prayers answered. We are giving our married children a 10 inch statue each for their homes and red prayer manual if they would also like to say the prayers if they so choose to. The statue we know will help them with many graces as they pray before it as it has helped us in our home and lives. Love you all.  8/3/2007

6. Pregnancy. (A long note about how a woman got pregnant after she came to the Virgin Mary Building.) 3/21/2008

7. My mother was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in April 2005. She received the Jesus water of Clearwater that my brother brought to El Salvador. She was treated at Instituto Salvadoreno del Segino Social. She was expected to live 3-6 months. She lived well for 2 years. Now she rests in peace with Lord Jesus and Virgin Mary. She died of Pneumonia March 21, 2007.  4/27/2007

8. The CAT scan showed a dark spot and they thought they would have to remove my right kidney. My family went to the Blessed Mother and asked for prayers and help. They also got the healing water. Well all our prayers were answered. There was no cancer or tumor. Thanks for all your prayers and help, and thanks to the Lord above.  4/18/2007

9. Knees were injured from motorcycle accident July/August 2006. His mom got the water in Florida right after the accident and took it to him and he used it every day and now his knees are completely healed. He knows Jesus water did it. 1/9/2007

10. Suspected blood clot. Pain in leg with swelling. Jesus water was used and pain went away and swelling. 12/31/2006

11. Barretrs — My husband brought Jesus water to hospital and put on my stomach. Biopsy came back fine.  12/27/06

12. A man from South Carolina came to thank Jesus and Mary for his healing. His brother sent him Jesus' water when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Three doctors told him there was nothing they could do for him. He started using Jesus' water and started feeling better (He could hardly walk, he was using a wheelchair a lot). He went back to the doctor and tests showed no more cancer — gone! The doctor told him he never saw this happen before. He is around 70 years old and walks and feels normal.   2006

13. A lady from Egypt wrote asking St. Mary for a baby for 3 years. She helped me and now I have a little daughter. Her name is Mariam after St. Mary name by my language. Thank God and Thank St. Mary. She always remembers me. - Egypt  10/25/2006

14. This woman filled out a healing form at the site. I am so blessed by the Blessed Mother that she has been there for me on more than several occasions. She performed a miracle on all occasions, one in particular was cancer of the right leg. The doctors wanted to cut my leg off the cancer was in the bone. When I returned to New York and went to a plastic surgeon he saw the cat scan and said my chances weren't good. When he did the surgery the cancer was not in the bone. It was superficial.  9/2/2006

15. Stroke. Healed August 2006. 9/2/2006

16. A year ago he went to Orlando for a test on his prostate. It was positive. He came here in May and got some Jesus water out of the trough. He went back to the doctor and he was healed. - Venezuela  8/25/2006

17. Infertility. Conceived and gave birth exactly 9 months after our first visit to Clearwater in August 2000. Our son was born exactly 9 months after our visit (May 20, 2001). I've had surgeries on both ovaries in 1998 and had very little chance of conceiving. Mother Mary gave us our blessing and wish. 7/21/2006

18. Peter was operated on for cancer he had for 10 years on his leg and because the wound was so big, they had to take some skin from another part of his leg to be able to fix it but it did split. So Monday the doctor said that another surgery was needed but thanks to Jesus water on Wednesday on that same week he was healed. - Argentina   7/2/2006

19. Cancer of the lungs. A friend of ours who we visit from Canada. He told us of his illness and we came and prayed at the Virgin Mary's appearance on March 28, 2006. He had Jesus' water put on him the night before his surgery. His surgery was on March 31 and the cancer was gone. Thank you for your blessings.  4/2/2006

20. Lower back muscle strain. After straining my back I used the Jesus water before using pain crθme. After putting on the water I no longer needed the crθme. The strain was gone.  3/16/2006

21. Neuropathy. He had gotten Jesus water a few days ago and went to the doctor yesterday.  3/15/2006

22. Pregnancy. I could not become pregnant. I came here to ask Mary to extend her hands on me, to be able to have a child. The miracle happened. I did not know that other women had become pregnant by asking Mary. My son is 3 years old. I am convinced that he is called to be special in his life, he has a mission. When she went to see the doctor, specialists, they said forget it, she couldn't have a baby, and she went to many different ones. Came here to pray and became pregnant. All the doctors never understood what had happened. They said he is a miracle child. 3/8/2006

23. Pregnancy. Became pregnant of twin girls after we prayed in 2005 and even have a statue of the Virgin Mary in our yard. After 15 years of concubinage Virgin Mary finally blessed us. Thanks. Thanks. Thanks. Jesus water was used to help conceive. 2/2/2006

24. A woman came in today from New York and said she was here last March (2005) and got the Jesus water. Her cousin who was very healthy and had just retired at age 60 suffered a massive stroke. He was taken to the best neurological hospital in New York and the doctors said he had no chance of recovery. He had a blood clot at the base of his brain stem. He was in intensive care and the woman with the other family members were visiting him and she put Jesus water on him and they prayed over him, while he was laying in bed in a fetal position unable to talk was paralyzed. After she had left (only 30 minutes of visitation in Intensive Care) the woman received a call from her cousin's wife saying the man had sat up in bed after they left and was miraculously healed. He is back at home now. The doctors came in and said this was a miracle. This was 2 months ago.  1/24/2006

25. Dermatomyositis (a form of Muscular Dystrophy). I was given 6 months to live. I was really depressed ready to give up when, while being in town for my girlfriends niece's Christmas Party. I heard it on the news. (December 17, 1996) Decided why not let's go, when I got here I was not expecting to see what I saw. I couldn't believe what I saw. Within an hour I put the cane down, slowly but surely got better enough where I wasn't paralyzed or dead. Thank you Jesus and Mary.  12/16/2005

26. Small Bowel Syndrome. Infant acquired surgical intervention at birth. 4 months care at home. Healed completely as of May 2005.    11/24/2005

27. Newborn very sick - 2 lbs. My mother came to visit me. We used to live in the post apartments by Target. I brought my Mother to the Virgin Mary Building in Clearwater and she prayed for my niece, who was in Guatemala. When my Mother returned to Guatemala she took the picture of Virgin Mary and put it in my niece's room. When my niece was born, she needed a tube feeding. She couldn't eat on her own. She was very thin and very sick. Many people told my sister and my mother (including the doctors) that my niece was so sick that she probably would died. Thank to our Lady Virgin Mary, my niece is a healthy gifted 9 year old girl. - Guatemala - Healing was at 6 months old. 11-22-2005

28. My daughter was told she had thyroid cancer, after having one side of the thyroid removed they found the cancer was gone. This had to be due to Mary and Jesus Water and her belief in the Mother and Son.  9/17/2005

29. Virus. He was in Egypt. His relatives came to the site and asked for prayers for healing for him. That same day they were here he was completely healed of his Liver virus. He is a physician.  8/31/2005

30. After waiting about 8 months for the baby to get bigger for the surgery, the doctor checked him and couldn't believe it, but she said, "It just fixed itself." He was 4 months premature and this surgery would have lowered his sperm count significantly and its already been lowered by a double inguinal hernia surgery. 6-14-2005  

31. Burst tube with unexpected pregnancy. Was internal bleeding. Doctor told was miracle, surviving from this kind of operation. She (the mother) had come to the site and prayed to God if this Image (Our Lady of Clearwater) was from God to grant her a miracle. Her daughter who was in Lithuania at the time was in the hospital and the above miracle happened during the 2 hours the mother was praying at the site.  5/4/2005

32. Heart failure. He was not breathing. Jesus water was poured on him while praying. He started breathing again. 4/23/2005

33. When I was pregnant, my baby was sick. My baby born was well. Thanks.  4/18/2005

34. Flu. Both sitting in car, praying rosary both sick of flu. He very sick, not getting better. Both used the water, felt pain leave body, didn't say anything, but after few minutes he said "I feel pain is gone." They drove back to tell us that they were healed. 4/18/2005

35. Asthma. Put Jesus water on neck. Breathing much better. 4/17/2005

36. Severe back pain. Have a bad back from laying brick for years and sometimes I bend over and the pain is severe and it takes at least 3 or 4 or more weeks for it to go away. I put Jesus water on it and it went away in 2 days. Alleluia.  4/16/2005

37. I must admit that some days I forget to wash in the water. But I have felt the same feeling once again a few days ago as I did on March 2nd, the first time I applied it to my knees. On the movie that you took, I am walking on the beach without a cane. I don't know if you noticed. I didn't use the cane yesterday, and I have no pain. I'm still slow at climbing the stairs, but I'm seeing a tremendous improvement. I'll keep a journal, and continue updating you I pray a lot, as I'm applying the medicine. Part of my prayer is "If it be your will." Thank you. I'll be in touch soon. 3/11/2005

38. My husband had a good friend and he was diagnosed with cancer and given less than a few weeks to live. Jesus told me to take him the Jesus water. I never really met him, but I went to the hospital. He was so sick. He bounced up and said I knew it - I will be healed. And he lived over two years longer.

39. Leukemia went into remission February 7, 2003. Her doctor can't believe how well she is doing. She has the worse kind of Leukemia there is and she is doing extremely well. He said this does not happen, so soon, we told him its because of all the prayers, everyone is saying for her. The day after we visited the Blessed Mother Building, her blood count was excellent. Thank you so much. As of 11/3/2004 she is still in remission and doing very well, a happy 10 year old little girl. We are all so thankful for all the prayers from everyone, we truly believe, if we hadn't had our faith and by going to the Virgin Mary building so often, we wouldn't have been so fortunate to have her. Prayer is still the most powerful and healing process. Thank you so much.  11/3/2004

40. Spinal Manangitas. December 16th, 2002 we almost lost our little grandson. He was taken flight for life to Madison where they worked on him for hours. They told us he would either be blind - deaf - brain damage, or he might not walk. Today he is a happy - healthy little boy full of life. Thanks to everyone's prayers to our Blessed Virgin and our heavenly Father, without them we would not have him. Thank you. As of this date November 3, 2004 our little grandson is doing very well, a healthy happy little boy, and so full of life, and without any complications. Our prayers and by going to the Virgin Mary building truly helped this little boy. Thanks to everyone for all their prayers. 11/3/2004

41. After my family visited the Virgin Mary and returned to hospital, I showed no sign of having a stroke. Doctors at hospital said I would not recover.  4/2001



4th Sunday of Lent

2 Chronicles 36: 14-16, 19-23

Furthermore, all the leaders of Judah, the priests and the people too, added infidelity to infidelity, copying all the shameful practices of the nations and defiling the Temple of Yahweh which he himself had consecrated in Jerusalem. Yahweh, God of their ancestors, continuously sent them word through his messengers because he felt sorry for his people and his dwelling, but they ridiculed the messengers of God, they despised his words, they laughed at his prophets, until Yahweh's wrath with his people became so fierce that there was no further remedy.

He burned down the temple of God, demolished the walls of Jerusalem, burned all its palaces to the ground and destroyed everything of value in it. And those who had escaped the sword he deported to Babylon, where they were enslaved by him and his descendants until the rise of the kingdom of Persia, to fulfil Yahweh's prophecy through Jeremiah: Until the country has paid off its Sabbaths, it will lie fallow for all the days of its desolation--until the seventy years are complete.

In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia--to fulfil the word of Yahweh through Jeremiah--Yahweh roused the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia to issue a proclamation and to have it publicly displayed throughout his kingdom: 'Cyrus king of Persia says this, "Yahweh, the God of Heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and has appointed me to build him a Temple in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever there is among you of all his people, may his God be with him! Let him go up." '


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.


John 3: 14-21 

    as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, 
    so must the Son of man be lifted up 
    so that everyone who believes 
        may have eternal life in him. 
    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. 
    For God sent his Son into the world 
    not to judge the world, 
    but so that through him 
        the world might be saved. 
    No one who believes in him 
    will be judged; 
    but whoever does not believe 
        is judged already, 
    because that person does not believe 
    in the Name of God’s only Son. 
    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.’


4th Sunday of Lent

March 22, 2009

INTRODUCTION – (2 Chronicles 36:14-16, 19-23; Eph. 2:4-10; John 3:14-21) Last Sunday we heard about God’s covenant with his people as they traveled with Moses from slavery in Egypt to freedom in the Promised Land. God promised his people many blessings and his special love and in return they were to keep his Law, especially the part of the Law we call “The Ten Commandments.” The Jewish historian who wrote the book of Chronicles gives us a summary of over seven centuries of infidelities on the part of God’s people to their covenant. The consequences of their infidelity led to untold disaster for the nation, but God would not let them be destroyed totally. Just to help you visualize this better, the Babylonians who practically destroyed them came out of modern day Iraq. The Persians who restored them to their land came out of Iran. Our psalm refrain is the lament of God’s people as they suffered captivity in Babylon. Next week we will hear Jeremiah promise that God would make a new covenant with his people since the old one was so poorly kept. We celebrate and renew God’s new covenant as always as we celebrate the Eucharist today.

HOMILY – Our gospel comes from the third chapter of St. John. The third chapter begins with Nicodemus coming to talk with Jesus. We only hear about Nicodemus from St. John and he comes up three times in John’s gospel. He was a Pharisee and a Jewish religious leader, which implies he is one of the 71 members of the Sanhedrin, the supreme ruling council of the Jews.

    We have a stained glass window in the room in the back of Church picturing Jesus talking with Nicodemus. We now call it the brides’ room, but originally it was the baptistery and the window was placed there because, at this meeting with Jesus that today’s gospel is about, Jesus talks with Nicodemus about baptism.

    John tells us Nicodemus came to Jesus at night. On a practical level, he was avoiding the possibility that any of his peers (who were hostile to Jesus) might see Nicodemus associating with this preacher from Nazareth. John uses light and darkness all through his gospel as a symbol of truth and error, grace and sin. John was also telling us symbolically that Nicodemus came from the darkness to Jesus, who is the light. John employs this same symbolism after Judas betrayed Jesus. At the Last Supper Judas left the supper room and John tells us when he went out, it was night. He’s not so much telling us the time of day but that Judas was walking away from Jesus, the light.

    Although Nicodemus was a teacher in Israel, what Jesus had to say to him left him completely perplexed. Jesus told Nicodemus a person must be born again if he or she is ever to see the Kingdom of God. Nicodemus thought Jesus was telling him we had to start over again in life like a little baby. To clarify things for Nicodemus, Jesus explained that simply being born into this world does not entitle us to eternal life. We must be born again of water and the Spirit. This conversation leads us into today’s gospel.

    Before I get into what our gospel tells us, I want to digress and mention the other two times when Nicodemus shows up in John’s gospel. The second time is later on when the Sanhedrin wanted to convict Jesus of being an imposter and seducing the people into believing he was the Messiah. Nicodemus spoke up and said Jesus should not be condemned without a fair trial. He was, of course, ridiculed for his comments. Lastly we see Nicodemus at he end of Jesus’ life when he brought spices to help with Jesus’ burial. He obviously grew in courage as he more boldly showed his faith in Jesus. In these three instances we see Nicodemus moving from darkness into the light.

    Now back to today’s gospel. I am simplifying Jesus’ teachings considerably. Jesus goes on to say that his death and resurrection are the basis of the spiritual life to be revealed by him. The words “raised up” in John refer both to Jesus being raised up on the cross and his glorification in his resurrection and ascension. Jesus used an example to explain this that Nicodemus would have understood. The example is taken from an event from the book of Numbers where the Jews, in their journey through the desert, encountered a nest of poisonous snakes. Many were bitten with a painful bite and many died. God, however, told Moses to make a bronze serpent and put it on a pole and all who looked upon it were healed and saved. And so, it is through Jesus’ saving death and resurrection and our faith in him, celebrated and expressed through baptism and the Eucharist (which we will see later in John’s gospel) that we are saved. Jesus stresses that he has come to save us simply because of God’s great love and not because we deserve it or earned it. But he cautions us that his love cannot save us if we do not open ourselves to it. It is like the light, Jesus says. We can choose to open our eyes and hearts to his light or we can remain in the dark, the darkness of life without Christ.

    So we hear the famous verse John 3:16: God so loved the world, God so loved you and me, that he sent his only son who died and rose to give us life. This is the new covenant that God offers us. We recall that love and express our faith in his love now as we celebrate our Eucharist. Amen.

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

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

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
