          Excerpt from Priestly Newsletter 1998 - ISSUE FOUR

Shortly before he was to die from cancer, Joseph Cardinal Bernardin left us these inspiring words about peace: "It is the first day of November, and fall is giving way to winter. Soon the trees will lose the vibrant colors of their leaves and snow will cover the ground. The earth will shut down, and people will race to and from their destinations bundled up for warmth. Chicago winters are harsh. It is a time of dying.

"But we know that spring will soon come with all its new life and wonder.

"It is quite clear that I will not be alive in the spring. But I will soon experience new life in a different way...

"What I would like to leave behind is a simple prayer that each of you may find what I have found--God's special gift to us all: the gift of peace. When we are at peace, we find the freedom to be most fully who we are, even in the worst of times. We let go of what is non-essential and embrace what is essential. We empty ourselves so that God may more fully work within us. And we become instruments in the hands of the Lord."3

         He said yes!
Jesus said:
       I write to you to help renew the Church
                  and the world.

 



Excerpt from Rosary on December 5, 1996:

Jesus speaks: I am alive, I am alive. I am alive. My beloved ones, I show you My face. Do you see the body of a man? Do you see Me alive on the cross? I am speaking to you but the world does not hear. They do not hear the message that I deliver to them. You must pray fervently. You must come to Me that I can be one in you and that I can operate through you as you go into the world this day. I love you. I love you with the most tender love. I am Jesus. I am alive. You are My main soldiers that I will send into the world to lead the strayed ones to My Heart.

The days ahead will be dark days. You must come to My Heart and take shelter in My Heart. It is there that you will be rooted on a firm rock. For My Heart is your home. You will not know the terrors of the night if you stay rooted in My Heart.

Division is blackness in the heart. You must not be divided, divided from anyone. You must remain in union with all men. You must see yourselves as part of the Father's family. Each one of you is so important to the Father's plan.

Jesus on the cross at Immaculata Church

Messenger: Holy Spirit, come to us and fill our hearts with the fire of God's love. Help us to unite in this rosary, to unite with one another and with the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Help us to see ourselves as one happy family, the Father's happy family rooted in love in which there is not any bumping of heads, but rather harmony, love and respect for each other.

end of excerpt from rosary of December 5, 1996



August 6, 1999
   Feast of the Transfiguration

Messenger: Jesus gave Himself selflessly on the cross.

He poured out Himself in that act.

His whole act was that of giving His will in total surrender.

I ask you to know Jesus in this way of how He willed the salvation of every soul with the selfless giving of Himself in total surrender.

He willed it, He wanted every soul to be saved.

In His perfect consuming desire, He wanted to give Himself completely for the salvation of souls.

There is a purity of Jesusí willing that we do not have.

I wish to stress the momentum of the act as Christ gave Himself for love of men and the consuming desire and wish to save souls which was in the very act of His selfless giving of Himself.

It is frustrating to be given such knowledge of the will and desire of that God-Manís offering of Himself on the cross and be unable to express this knowledge in words when it seems so clear in my being exactly how it was from the experience He gave me.

My desire here is to impress upon the reader the purity of desire behind Christís selflessly giving of Himself. The God-Man willed this complete offering of Himself in complete purity. He was one in the Fatherís will. The words in the Scripture:



Lk.22:42

ĎFather,í he said, Ďif you are willing, take this cup away from me. Nevertheless, let your will be done, not mine.í

and

Mk. 15:34

And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ĎEloi, eloi, lama sabachthani?í which means, ĎMy God, my God, why have you forsaken me?í

 


may indicate an unwillingness in the minds of some. There was not any of this.

He willed His selfless offering, for He lives perfectly in the Fatherís will. They are One.

The purity of the intention of this self giving gives us a greater understanding of the consuming love of Jesus in this act.

Father, Son and Holy Spirit were One willing this act of the Son giving Himself.

Jesus was consumed with love of man.

His love IS. This day His love is as great for us as the day He died on the cross.

I think of a man in a race trying with 100% will to finish first. He is consumed with the desire to finish, he gives his all as much as possible to finish first.

Jesus willed to give Himself as a most pure offering, far excelling any offering that any of us could make.

In experiencing with Him, to the extent He allowed me, His act of selfless giving of Himself. I saw the intention behind the act of Jesusí wanting to save every soul. His offering was so pure with the intention of doing so in perfect conformity with the Fatherís will. We do not have this capacity, but to some extent we can share in this way of willing because our wills are elevated to a greater capacity of loving through the life of sanctifying grace. And we grow in this capacity as we grow in the life of grace. We do partake in this way of willing.

But here again I want to describe the purity of the act of the Son willing the salvation of every soul and to emphasize the act as one of consuming love.

The other revelation I received when I experienced His death on the cross (to the capacity He allowed me) was a sampling of pure love.

There is no imperfection in His love. He loves souls so much and wants them to be saved as the Father wanted from the beginning.

I experienced such love for every soul with a perfection and purity of knowing only love, and from this love I had the desire that every man be saved and live according to the Fatherís plan. The love for them and the desire for their salvation has a unity that I cannot describe on paper. God wills man to be with Him in heaven forever. God loves us. God gives man his freedom in this love for us. It is man through unrepented serious sin that condemns himself to life in hell. Because of the justice of God, man must be punished for sin, but God makes clear to man His mercy. His promise to Abraham and the words of Mary in the Magnificat confirm this promise of mercy.

But here again my intention now is to focus on the knowledge revealed to me in this experience of August 4, 1999.

I have an experience of the love of God and the purity of His love, to love men despite their sins.

When taken out of the experience in which my loving capacity was elevated to such a heightened level in Him, I suffer from my imperfections. I love imperfectly. The devil presses in to try to stop me from being loving. The desire was within me to love purely. I knew more of His pure love, but my capacity to love was not the same as when He had given me this great grace. At that time it was as if my imperfections did not exist and the devil was not taunting me to not love more purely.

I experienced this afterwards, a real battle to love as I wanted to and a pulling back in myself for fear I would be hurt and taken advantage of which would cause enormous hurt which I did not think I could bear. I wanted to pull back and protect myself. Whereas when I was in the experience, I only knew love and could go out of myself, loving all without fear. The self focus was not there.

I had been emptied by the effects of the act of loving on me and I only gave selflessly.

Now I am in this more usual state of existing. I experience fear, my imperfections, and lack of energy to just go out of myself and love selflessly.

My self holds me back as I discern what is safe and how I should love or not love. There is an impurity in my loving capacity and I am taunted by the evil one who tells me why it is unsafe to love and trust.

There is a limit to the love I wish to give.

There is a holding back.

There is a wanting to protect myself so I am not hurt.

This state is nothing like the experience I had of tasting His pure love.

It is being engulfed in fear and self doubt. It is full of imperfections. It pulls in, whereas He goes out. It is just hard to describe.

It is more focused on self, less focused on loving selflessly.



1 John 3:2

My dear friends,
    we are already Godís children,
but what we shall be in the future
    has not yet been revealed.
We are well aware that when he appears
we shall be like him,
because we shall see him as he really is.

Sorrowful MotherMary's Message from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary speaks: I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light. O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light. O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.

Mary speaks: I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows. I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.

(End of Mary's Message)


A Note from the President of Shepherds of Christ:

If you are devoted to Our Lady's rosary, we need your help! A member of our ministry is very devoted to Our Blessed Mother and he is helping to teach us how to grow our volunteer rosary makers. He estimates that we will need approximately $37,000 this year for beads alone! This translates into 22,339,500 rosary beads (yes, 22 million beads) assembled by volunteers into 378 thousand rosaries. The biggest users of our rosaries are the Catholic schools, who requested more than 100,000 rosaries last year.

Can you help us? I appeal to you for funds, whether large or small. We give because we love God, we love our Blessed Mother, and we love souls. We will accept gifts in many forms, besides cash or check donations, we can receive gifts directly in the form of stocks or property. These gifts can offer large tax advantages to the donor and increase the monetary value of the gift to us. Also if you can help assemble rosaries we need your help! If you can help us in anyway, please call or write us. God Bless!

I love you,
John Weickert


         

A rosary can be used to pray for healing. It is powerful to unite our prayers to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and pray through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater.

In times of trouble, for special prayer, we can use our rosary and pray as follows.

A Rosary for Healing or for Someone with Cancer.

On one Hail Mary bead or as many as you desire, say: 

May God heal                     through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater in union with the Mass and all the Masses being celebrated around the world.

Pray the Hail Mary or Hail Mary's then pray this after the Hail Mary.

May the cancer be uprooted and thrown into the sea.

We believe with all our hearts.

After the Glory Be — pray the following petition.

May                     be healed through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater if it be the holy will of God.

Note: You can look at Mary on the image rosary while you pray this rosary.

Note: The above section can be printed out from a PDF file, and you can pray the rosary looking at the pictures.
