Genesis 37: 3-4, 12-13, 17-28  

   Jacob loved Joseph more than all his other sons, for he was the son of his old age, and he had a decorated tunic made for him. But his brothers, seeing how much more his father loved him than all his other sons, came to hate him so much that they could not say a civil word to him.

   His brothers went to pasture their father’s flock at Shechem. Then Israel said to Joseph, ‘Your brothers are with the flock at Shechem, aren’t they? Come, I am going to send you to them.’ ‘I am ready,’ he replied.

The man answered, ‘They have moved on from here; indeed I heard them say, "Let us go to Dothan." ’ So Joseph went after his brothers and found them at Dothan.
   They saw him in the distance, and before he reached them they made a plot to kill him. ‘Here comes that dreamer,’ they said to one another. ‘Come on, let us kill him now and throw him down one of the storage–wells; we can say that some wild animal has devoured him. Then we shall see what becomes of his dreams.’
   But Reuben heard, and he saved him from their clutches. ‘We must not take his life,’ he said. ‘Shed no blood,’ said Reuben to them, ‘throw him down that well out in the desert, but do not kill him yourselves’—intending to save him from them and to restore him to his father. So, when Joseph reached his brothers, they pulled off his tunic, the decorated tunic which he was wearing, and catching hold of him, threw him into the well. The well was empty, with no water in it. They then sat down to eat.
   Looking up, they saw a group of Ishmaelites who were coming from Gilead, their camels laden with gum tragacanth, balsam and resin, which they were taking to Egypt. Then Judah said to his brothers, ‘What do we gain by killing our brother and covering up his blood? Come, let us sell him to the Ishmaelites, then we shall not have laid hands on him ourselves. After all, he is our brother, and our own flesh.’ His brothers agreed.
   Now some Midianite merchants were passing, and they pulled Joseph out of the well. They sold Joseph to the Ishmaelites for twenty shekels of silver, and these men took Joseph to Egypt.

     

Psalm 105: 16-21

He called down famine on the land, 
he took away their food supply; 
he sent a man ahead of them, 
Joseph, sold as a slave. 

So his feet were weighed down with shackles, 
his neck was put in irons. 
In due time his prophecy was fulfilled, 
the word of Yahweh proved him true. 

The king sent orders to release him, 
the ruler of nations set him free; 
he put him in charge of his household, 
the ruler of all he possessed,

 

Matthew 21: 33-43, 45-46

‘Listen to another parable. There was a man, a landowner, who planted a vineyard; he fenced it round, dug a winepress in it and built a tower; then he leased it to tenants and went abroad. When vintage time drew near he sent his servants to the tenants to collect his produce. But the tenants seized his servants, thrashed one, killed another and stoned a third. Next he sent some more servants, this time a larger number, and they dealt with them in the same way. Finally he sent his son to them thinking, "They will respect my son." But when the tenants saw the son, they said to each other, "This is the heir. Come on, let us kill him and take over his inheritance." So they seized him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. Now when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?’ They answered, ‘He will bring those wretches to a wretched end and lease the vineyard to other tenants who will deliver the produce to him at the proper time.’ Jesus said to them, ‘Have you never read in the scriptures:

   The stone which the builders rejected
   has become the cornerstone;
   this is the Lord’s doing
   and we marvel at it? 

‘I tell you, then, that the kingdom of God will be taken from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit.’ 
   When they heard his parables, the chief priests and the scribes realised he was speaking about them, but though they would have liked to arrest him they were afraid of the crowds, who looked on him as a prophet.

   

                R. Joseph was sold as a slave —
                We see what they did to Jesus —
                Jesus the suffering servant —
                Joseph believed in the one true God —
                We see the prospering of Joseph despite
                    what his brothers did to him —

                Joseph was sold for 20 pieces of silver —
                Jesus sold for 30 pieces of silver —
                Joseph was sold —
                A slave!!
                Against his father's wishes.

                The jealous brothers lied to their
                    father, Jacob —

                The saints and martyrs suffered,
                    too, to help the Church be
                    as it is today —

                    We can take things for granted, the
                Church, the Eucharist, baptism,
                our sight —
                We can take things for granted instead
                of thanking God for the gifts God
                gives us.

                Joseph prayed to the God of his Fathers —
                The one true God —
                Life for the slaves were tough —

                Look at the slaves under Pharaoh at
                    the time of Moses —

                Slaves were treated so disrespectfully —
                    kicked, whipped, killed — they
                    really suffered —

                The gifts we have came at the price
                    of so many —

                Think of how they suffered our
                    Fathers in going to the Promised
                    Land, in being formed into
                    the people of God —

                Think of the sacrifices of Abraham,
                    Jacob and Joseph and their
                    people —

                Joseph could read —
                Joseph was sold against his father's
                    knowledge —

                Joseph's brothers lied to their father.

                    Whatever Joseph touched prospered —
                even though he remained a slave at
                first —

                    The wife of Potiphar tried to seduce
                him. She said it was her word against
                that of a slave — She was lusting after Joseph —
                Joseph would not betray Potiphar's trust and
                sin against God.

                    Then she lied and said he did it
                to her —

                    Potiphar believed Joseph —

                    There were lots of storms in Ohio
                and Indiana and people's houses were
                destroyed — some completely — towns
                wiped out — Some people died —
                One moment everything was okay, then
                their houses were destroyed because
                of the storm — some lost
                their lives. All around Fr. Mike's parish,
                all around in Church in China —

 

Luke 17: 26-37

‘As it was in Noah’s day, so will it also be in the days of the Son of man. People were eating and drinking, marrying wives and husbands, right up to the day Noah went into the ark, and the Flood came and destroyed them all. It will be the same as it was in Lot’s day: people were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building, but the day Lot left Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and it destroyed them all. It will be the same when the day comes for the Son of man to be revealed. ‘When that Day comes, no one on the housetop, with his possessions in the house, must come down to collect them, nor must anyone in the fields turn back. Remember Lot’s wife. Anyone who tries to preserve his life will lose it; and anyone who loses it will keep it safe. I tell you, on that night, when two are in one bed, one will be taken, the other left; when two women are grinding corn together, one will be taken, the other left.’ The disciples spoke up and asked, ‘Where, Lord?’ He said, ‘Where the body is, there too will the vultures gather.’

      

                R. Joseph's brothers were so jealous they were
                going to kill him — They wanted power
                over Joseph —

                    When Potiphar's wife tried to seduce him
                and Joseph would not give in she lied to Potiphar
                and wanted Joseph punished to the
                letter of the law —

                    Joseph wanted nothing of her
                sin, but she would have Joseph
                or turn him in.

                In today's Gospel we see again how
                    evil men can be to the owner,
                    the heir —

                    Power over —

                    The devil first went to Eve —
                then Eve tried to convince Adam —
                Adam and Eve sinned against God —
                There can be a legion of devils operating
                against God's law, just authority —
                The devil wants to win —

                The woman who tried to seduce Joseph
                    wanted him sentenced to
                    death —

                Potiphar had to do something to Joseph
                    to save his face — even though
                    Joseph was not guilty —
                    Potiphar's wife was evil and didn't want
                    her evil exposed —
                    She wanted Joseph killed and
                    she was evil —
                    After she sinned, she wanted
                    Potiphar to be concerned with
                    her humiliation —
                    Joseph was truthful —
                    The wife was a liar and she
                    wanted more evil done to cover
                    up her sins —
                    She wanted to be right when
                    she was wrong —

                The man telling the truth is free —

                The liar isn't free he is
                    enslaved to satan —

                God is just —

                Heaven is a reward promised
                    to those who do God's will
                    and serve Him —

                God commands us to love Him —
                    to love others and to love
                    ourselves —

                God who created the heavens and
                    earth and us - is love —
                    He commands us to love —
                    He will punish the wicked —

                Fr. Mike told me about the
                    Pharisees yesterday — they
                    were hypocrites —

                Jesus forgave sinners sorry for their
                    sins — prostitutes, but He
                    called the men who were
                    phonies and hypocrites
                    Vipers —

                God reads our hearts —
                We can't fool God —

                A man was called before others to
                    give an accounting for his love
                    and unity with the community —
                    He walked before them and acted
                    like he was upright, loving
                    and working in unity, but
                    in fact he was a hypocrite.
                    A hypocrite pretends he is something
                    he isn't. God wants us to be pure at
                    Mass — the interior disposition pure —
                    one of truth —

 

Matthew 5: 21-26

    ‘You have heard how it was said to our ancestors, You shall not kill; and if anyone  does kill he must answer for it before the court. But I say this to you, anyone who is angry with a brother will answer for it before the court; anyone who calls a brother "Fool" will answer for it before the Sanhedrin; and anyone who calls him "Traitor" will answer for it in hell fire. So then, if you are bringing your offering to the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your offering there before the altar, go and be reconciled with your brother first, and then come back and present your offering. Come to terms with your opponent in good time while you are still on the way to the court with him, or he may hand you over to the judge and the judge to the officer, and you will be thrown into prison. In truth I tell you, you will not get out till you have paid the last penny.

 

                R. A person who is a hypocrite,
                a phony sits at table and pretends
                he is something he isn't —
                going to Mass our union should
                be loving, truthful — what we
                tell to others by our presence
                the truth —

                    The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary
                sacramentally made present —

                They stripped Joseph —
                They stripped Jesus —

                A hypocrite is one who pretends
                    he is moral and religious,
                    part of the community —
                    and he is not at all —
                    It is a lie —

                Joseph's brothers because of their
                    jealousy and seeking power hated
                    Joseph —

                The devil hates those prophets,
                    saints, martyrs spreading
                    God's Word, His love —

                The devil acted through men
                    who put Jesus to death —
                    the devil acted in Joseph's
                    brothers — they lied to their
                    father —

                Joseph was chosen by God to continue
                    in the formation of the Jewish
                    people —

                Jesus is the way, the truth and
                    the life —

                The Jewish people had to be
                    faithful to the one true God.

                Remember the woes to the Pharisees —
                    They were not practicing what
                        they preached — they were
                        teaching about God, but did not
                        love —

   

Matthew 23: 13-14

    Alas for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut up the kingdom of Heaven in people’s faces, neither going in yourselves nor allowing others to go who want to.

   

                R. The hypocrites wore the mask —

                Jesus: Deception is your game —
                    before men who want the truth — you
                    come before to show your
                    righteousness when in fact
                    what you do wrong you argue
                    to prove your innocence —
                    wash yourselves in your hearts
                    of your cold hearts, lies and
                    deceptions —

                St. Paul walked in My footprints —
                    suffering and enduring for the
                    sake of the Gospel —

                 White - washed tombs —

                Folly, men, who are like the hypocrites
                    the Pharisees —

                Woe to you
                For I am love —
                Walk in the ways likened to Me —

                The Church is to be a strong community —

                R. A prayer:
                    Dear God, I love You
                    Dear God, I need You —
                    Dear God, I thank You —
                    Dear God, You are my Savior and my God —
                    Dear God, You are my strength in due season,
                    Dear God, Thou I walk in the valley —
                                    Your hand I hold for You are
                                    forever with me —
                    Dear God, I worship You!!
                    I love You, Jesus!!

                        greed
                        cowardice
                        seeking power for power sake

                Sin is an act of the will in which
                    we turn from God —
                    our true end and
                    choose something else more than God for our goal —

                A willful thought, word, deed,
                    omission contrary to the
                    law of God, the law of love —

                Sin is hateful —
                Sin degrades us
                Sin makes us miserable
                Sin is an offense against an infinite, good God
                Sin turns from love to hatred
                    to not love God and others as our self —
                Sin weakens our will to continue
                    sinning

   

Exodus 20: 2-5 

‘I am Yahweh your God who brought you out of Egypt, where you lived as slaves.

   ‘You shall have no other gods to rival me.

   ‘You shall not make yourself a carved image or any likeness of anything in heaven above or on earth beneath or in the waters under the earth.

   ‘You shall not bow down to them or serve them. For I, Yahweh your God, am a jealous God and I punish a parent’s fault in the children, the grandchildren, and the great–grandchildren among those who hate me;

   

                R. We owe God our love, reverence,
                    homage and service —

                God is Supreme
                    all - knowing
                    all - wise
                    all - powerful
                    all - good
                    all - holy
                    all - just
                    all - merciful
 

                Joseph was sold into slavery
                Joseph had dreams
                Joseph interpreted dreams
                Joseph was blessed and
                    he was united with his brothers
                    and his father in the end!!

                Cain hated his brother so
                    much he killed him —

                Jesus called the Apostles to
                    build up the Church —

                Jesus made the Apostles
                    the hierarchy of the Church and priests of the Church.

                Peter the first pope

                Noah came from Seth —

                The earth had become corrupt
                    at the time of Noah —

   

Genesis 9: 8-15

    God spoke as follows to Noah and his sons, ‘I am now establishing my covenant with you and with your descendants to come, and with every living creature that was with you: birds, cattle and every wild animal with you; everything that came out of the ark, every living thing on earth. And I shall maintain my covenant with you: that never again shall all living things be destroyed by the waters of a flood, nor shall there ever again be a flood to devastate the earth.’

    ‘And this’, God said, ‘is the sign of the covenant which I now make between myself and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come: I now set my bow in the clouds and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I gather the clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, I shall recall the covenant between myself and you and every living creature, in a word all living things, and never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all living things.

 

                R. Noah prepared the ark as
                    God commanded —

                Today we are given the Church —

  

                R. Here are pictures I got in
                    Florida

 

January 31, 2012
Feast of Don Bosco

 

 

The Archbishop picked February 2, 2007 for us to have
24 hour exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.
Here is how Mary appeared
February 2, 2012 in Clearwater
(We had been doing 24 hour adoration before the tabernacle since August 13, 2004.)

February 13, 2012 the monstrance in China turned.

 
               
Micah 7: 14-15, 18-20

With shepherd’s crook
     lead your people to pasture,
the flock that is your heritage,
living confined in a forest
with meadow land all round.
Let them graze in Bashan and Gilead
as in the days of old!
As in the days
    when you came out of Egypt,
grant us to see wonders!

What god can compare with you
for pardoning guilt
and for overlooking crime?
He does not harbour anger for ever,
since he delights in showing faithful love.
Once more have pity on us,
tread down our faults;
throw all our sins
to the bottom of the sea.
Grant Jacob your faithfulness,
and Abraham your faithful love,
as you swore to our ancestors
from the days of long ago.

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
