Death - Resurrection
Prayer of St Ignatius
Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Permit me not to be separated from Thee
From the wicked foe defend me
at the hour of my death call me
and bid me come to Thee
That with Thy saints I may praise Thee
For ever and ever. Amen.
Prayer from St. Ignatius
Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
To give and not to count the cost;
To fight and not to heed the wounds;
To toil and not to seek for rest;
To labor and not to ask for any reward,
Save that of knowing
that I am doing your will.
R. Jesus had enemies
Nice guys are not to have enemies in our
But they crucified Jesus
But He rose on the 3rd day
Jesus died for all
Jesus rose for us
Matthew 27: 50-51
And about the ninth hour, Jesus cried out in a loud voice, Eli, eli, lama sabachthani? that is, My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? When some of those who stood there heard this, they said, The man is calling on Elijah, and one of them quickly ran to get a sponge which he filled with vinegar and, putting it on a reed, gave it him to drink. But the rest of them said, Wait! And see if Elijah will come to save him. But Jesus, again crying out in a loud voice, yielded up his spirit.
And suddenly, the veil of the Sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom, the earth quaked, the rocks were split,
Matthew 27: 59-60
So Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean shroud and put it in his own new tomb which he had hewn out of the rock. He then rolled a large stone across the entrance of the tomb and went away.
Mark 9: 31
because he was instructing his disciples; he was telling them, 'The Son of man will be delivered into the power of men; they will put him to death; and three days after he has been put to death he will rise again.'
R. Jesus faced rejection
Jesus continued to do God's will
Jesus did the will of God the Father
Jesus struggled His whole life
Jesus was rejected
Jesus was hated
The devil wants us to hate
To reject what God is telling us to do
After all Jesus did we see Thomas
John 20: 27
Then he spoke to Thomas, Put your finger here; look, here are my hands. Give me your hand; put it into my side. Do not be unbelieving any more but believe.
R. Jesus said You will be hated
for My name sake, but
He who perseveres to the end
will be saved
Jesus' enemies were there
He said our enemies will be
those of His own household
Matthew 16: 23
But he turned and said to Peter, Get behind me, Satan! You are an obstacle in my path, because you are thinking not as God thinks but as human beings do.
R. Peter shows us his faith
Jesus said to Peter
Matthew 16: 18
So I now say to you: you are Peter and on this rock I will build my community. And the gates of the underworld can never overpower it.
R. Peter was called blessed
Then he was under the standard
of satan when Peter
didn't understand that
Christ was to be crucified
Jesus was always focused perfectly
on His mission
Peter was humiliated many
times as Jesus taught him
We see Jesus rose Lazarus
We see that we must follow
Jesus came forth from the tomb
despite the heavy rock
they put there
God's ways are not our ways
We need to stay focused on what
What is God calling us to do
Lazarus rose from the tomb
Jesus rose the dead!!
What a miracle
The men were afraid of Jesus'
miracles and they wanted to
put Him to death
Jesus show us gentleness when on earth
Jesus shows us how strong He was
Luke 12: 27
Think how the flowers grow; they never have to spin or weave; yet, I assure you, not even Solomon in all his royal robes was clothed like one of them.
R. Do we give into sin, to let this
distance from God,
rob us from our joy
Humility I am avoiding mortal
sin I obey God I
avoid all mortal sin
Better Humility is truth
Humility is love of God
I don't want to sin because
I am offending God and
I love Him so much
Am I loving God as I ought
I don't want to lie at all
Even a little lie
I don't want to do venial
sin because I love God
I can always grow in humility
I can be like Mary who wanted
only to please the Father and
do His will
Mary wanted to be like
the Father wanted her
God calls us to not be worrying
about what men think
of us, but to do what
God wants of us
Admit our faults
Freedom to serve as God wants
us to serve, not worry
about being right and above
others for our own self -
Jesus loved His enemies
Jesus always did God's will
Jesus wants us to obey God
Jesus is the way
Jesus is the way, the truth and
April 16, 1995
This rosary was delivered on Easter Sunday in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel. Jesus came alive in the large Sacred Heart picture. He came out of the picture. Marty saw clusters of angels around the Sorrowful Mother statue. Mary and Jesus moved their eyes.
Jesus: It is in your suffering that you will have immense union with Me.
Jesus: As I died and rose on the third day, you, in your suffering, will rise to new life in Me.
Jesus: You have come to Me and I am here waiting for you to share this time alone with you. Put your minds at rest and unite ever so closely to My Most Sacred Heart.
R. Death has no power over Jesus! On the third day He rose victorious from the tomb, His body glistening in white. He truly rose to bring us new life. We are partakers in His divine life. The gift that we receive is far beyond our comprehension.
Jesus: You are as the Easter lily. You come from a narrow place and you grow more and more in this life with Me. You will bud and blossom forth and My life will radiate to this world as you become absorbed and saturated with the divine life that I impart to you.
Jesus: My power is endless for I am truly here and present in this room with you. Feel the vibrancy of My presence with you. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, the resurrected Lord. I live and am present with you this very day.
Jesus: The world has closed off their hearts. They have come, their hearts are hardened, their faces are hard. I am life! You must go out to this world and give the message of My immense love. Tell this world that I am alive and I have risen, that I am in your midst this day, that I live in such an abundant fashion in the hearts of men who are in the state of grace. You, My children, are so blind! I am so present to you! God lives and is in your midst and you do not see. You run down useless roads and look for such foolish things. Oh, how I love you, My beloved. I call you to a state of urgency to spread My message to this world.
Jesus: As you are in your hearts, so shall you be in this world. I am Jesus, the risen Lord. I live on in the hearts of men this day. What you do here will affect the lives of so many souls. I beg you to preach the Gospel, to pray for fearlessness to carry this message to the hearts of all men.
Jesus: I am totally with you in this room. You do not realize the immense gifts that I give to you.
Jesus: In Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, I am present! The risen Lord is with you, My beloved souls, this very day!
Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts. Enkindle in us the fire of Your love. Come Holy Spirit, fill our hearts. Enkindle in us the fire of Your love.
Jesus: Before I ascended into heaven, I gave to the apostles the power to baptize and forgive sins. I give to My beloved priests this day this power through the Church. I give to each priest the power to change bread and wine into My most precious Body and Blood. How I love My Church and love My beloved priests-sons, for they are truly called. I live in this world today through My anointed ones.
R. See Jesus as He raises His arms and ascends into heaven and a cloud takes Him from our sight. We live on faith. We see the consecrated Host but we do not comprehend the great gift we have that He truly remains with us this day in the consecrated Host. God gives Himself to us! We become one in Him when we receive Him in the Eucharist. He gives us His Body.
Jesus: Do you see these mysteries, how glorious they truly are that I died and rose on the third day and then ascended into heaven?
Jesus: I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God, come to this earth in such great love to save souls, to lead souls to heaven to be with Me forever and ever. How many souls will be lost because of their willfulness and their ways? Pray, My children, for the souls that are in darkness. They hold on to their foolish ways. They turn their backs and go their own way.
R. He went to heaven to prepare a place for us. Heaven is our true home!
R. He ascended into heaven and the gates of heaven were opened!
Jesus: I send you as missionaries into this world to spread the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus: You say: "For You, Lord, anything! For You, Lord, I will do anything!" And I call you to speak out in front of people and you say, "I can't do that, Lord!" I call you to pray to the Spirit for the courage to preach the Gospel for there are many who are suffering and in pain. Hear their words: "You helped me get to heaven"!
R. See the souls as they ascend into Heaven behind Jesus. See the souls as they are released from purgatory because of our prayers. See the great mercy of God that He loves souls. God the Father loves us so much that He sent His Son into this world so that we might be in heaven some day.
Jesus: See the souls of those living this day, and see them, as they die, being condemned to eternal damnation for their willfulness. For sin is sin and I came to give you life!
Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts…
The Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles
R. Jesus promised before He left the earth that He would send the Holy Spirit to baptize the apostles. Please, dear Holy Spirit, descend upon us so that we have the courage to do all that You are asking us to do. We are fearful and weak and we need Your grace. We need You to live in us, to operate in us, to help us be more and more like Jesus.
R. Who is our model? Whom do we model ourselves after?
R. Mary was joined in the Upper Room with the apostles and a gigantic wind came and there appeared over their heads parted tongues of fire.
R. They were filled with the Holy Spirit and transformed from fear to fearlessness. They went out to preach the Gospel and all understood!
R. Holy Spirit, descend upon us! Outpour all of your gifts and please give to us the courage to be able to carry out the mission that the Father has intended for us.
R. Where we are, as humans, weak and afraid, saturate us with the fire of God's love so that as we operate, we operate enlightened by You. We receive Your wisdom, Your understanding and Your knowledge to know exactly what the Father is calling us to do.
R. Mary, our Mother, help us to unite ever closer to the Holy Spirit that He can work and be active in our being, that we might feel this saturation and penetration of the presence of the Almighty God within our souls.
R. Holy Spirit, impart to us Your life so that we may be enlightened to do all that God is asking us to do. Fill us with such a brilliant light that we know the light of the Almighty God.
Jesus: I am the Way, I am the Truth, I am the Life! He who abides in Me will have the light of life!
R. May we be transformed more and more into the image of Jesus in the Heart of the Virgin Mary and led to the bosom of our Father.
Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts…
The Assumption of Mary Into Heaven
Jesus: Model yourselves after Mary, My Mother. She was taken body and soul into heaven. You, too, some day will be taken into My kingdom.
Jesus: You must come to our Hearts. Pray from the heart, My beloved ones. As Mary was so united to My Heart, pray to Mary to unite yourselves closer and closer to My Heart.
Jesus: The more you live this rosary in your daily lives, the more you will pray from your heart. It is in understanding Our lives that you will be joined closer to Us.
Jesus: Our Hearts are a great symbol of Our love for you.
Jesus: How is your heart? Is your heart free of all debris to unite with My immense love? Purify your hearts and come ever closer to Me for a heart that is full of sin cannot unite with My Heart. My Heart is pure and filled with love. To unite closely with Me, your hearts must be forever pure.
Jesus: How I want to unite with each one of you in deepest love, to unite more deeply with you. The love that I have is immeasurable and the longings of your hearts are the longings to unite ever closer to My Heart. You will be satisfied in heaven, My beloved ones, for your hearts will be filled with My love.
R. Mary went to heaven and united closely with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in a most intense union.
Jesus: Your hearts crave this love that only I can give. Search you this barren desert and you will never satisfy the cravings in your hearts.
R. Mary mothers us as she mothered Jesus. Mary is the Mother of the Church. We pray to Mary to lead us to an ever deeper union with God.
R. We pray to Mary to lead this Church into deeper union with Her Son, to help the priests and the religious who are our ministers in this Church, to lead the souls to deep and longing love with Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts…
Mary Is Crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth
R. Mary reigns with her Son in the courts of heaven! The Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign on this earth! The Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph! There will be an era of peace, but many will suffer the loss of their souls for their own willfulness.
Jesus: You are a big part of the Father's plan to help souls to know of the love of God. I beg you to pray fervently from the heart and to lead others to the love of My Heart.
R. How the Heart of Mary knows the Heart of Jesus. How she stands by our side and mothers with the most maternal love. How do we turn to Mary? Do we realize that she is here at every second waiting to take us to the Heart of her Son? She reigns in heaven with her Son Jesus. He loves His Mother so much. Ought we not put our faith and trust and love in His Mother so that she might lead us closer to His Sacred Heart?
R. We are the children of God. God is our Father. Let us realize how we must live in connection with the Father, that our every action is to please Him and to do His Will, that Mary is our Mother and by our side with love to lead us to greatest union with God.
Jesus: Do you want peace, joy and happiness, or do you want your own wills? Only in submitting to the Will of My Father will you have peace, joy and happiness.
R. Mary is there to lead us to the Heart of her Son.
R. The Heart of Jesus is waiting to be united with us in such deep love. Help us, Jesus, as little children being held by our loving mother, to realize the immense love that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit outpour to us. Help us to realize how Mary is our Mother who guards us and protects us under her mantle, how she watches over us and leads us ever closer to the Heart of her Son.
Jesus: The glory is in the resurrection! The glory is in the new life! I lead you into glory but you must submit your wills to the Will of the Father.
Jesus: This intense union that I want with each one of you far surpasses anything you could find on this earth. Come to Me and sit with Me in front of My tabernacle. Be joined in oneness as I give you My very Body and Blood as your food to eat. I nourish you with My own Flesh and Blood. I become one with you and you become one with Me. As we are united, you become united to the Father, for I am one with the Father and He is one with Me. My beloved ones, the great gifts that I give to you and you are so blind!
Jesus: Consecrate your lives to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary and pray fervently for your priests, for I live this day in the Church. Pray for the priests and the Church. I love you, My beloved ones, and I love My Church.
Jesus: Feed the hungry! My love is enough! People do not realize the immensity of My love. They scratch only the surface and I have such deep love to give. If you focus always on My love, you will be fed. You will know struggles and trials, but in all of these struggles, you will be brought to deeper life with Me. As you experience thorns, I give to you a bed of roses. I am Jesus, My beloved ones, and I have spoken directly to you of those things that I hold in My Heart and wish to share with you. Open up your hearts and your souls and ponder the words that I have spoken here. I truly long to be closely united to you, My precious chosen ones. Pray, pray, pray! Men have turned their backs. They have walked away and in their willfulness, they have forgotten God. I come to bring you new life that you might have it to the full.
Song: I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me shall not hunger and who believes in Me shall not thirst. No one can come to Me unless the Father beckons. And I will raise you up. And I will raise you up. And I will raise you up on the last day.
Jesus: Pray for My beloved priests and for the Church, My dear ones. Pray for the courage to go out into this world and be a witness of the love of God that you have within your hearts. It is fear that stops you from spreading this message. You, too, will be joined with Me forever and ever in heaven. I ask you to go out into the world and tell all you meet of My great love for them.
Locution Received After
Recitation Of The Seven Sorrows
Jesus: I stand at the door of the hearts of mankind and knock. Many close their hearts and walk away. My beloved ones, pray for the souls of your brothers that they will open their hearts and let Me enter. Your prayers are so important for the salvation of many souls. Pray, My beloved ones! Pray as you have never prayed before. Unite ever more closely to My Most Sacred Heart. Pray always in union with Me and My Mother, the angels and saints, and the souls in purgatory. Pray to the Father, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in the Spirit. Your prayers are so valuable to many souls. Do not underestimate the power of prayer. I call out to you this day to go as soldiers into this world.

|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.

|Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word - Cycle B At times we may feel that our path to Christ is a bit "out of focus".

Cycle B's homilies are a "guiding light" to help us realize Jesus' Messianic greatness and His promise of better things to come. $15|
|Guiding Light - 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 - The Word Alive in Our Hearts. - Cycle A (partial) Homilies by the Reverend Joe Robinson given at St. Boniface Church in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is a tremendous honor Fr. Joe has allowed us to share these great gifts with you for greater holiness and knowing more and more about God. $10

|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|
