Pray for Urgent Intentions
and Funds

 

 

Dear Friends,
I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.
 
When Mary's image was knocked out what remained was an old grand piano someone who is now dead (old age) gave that was there grandma's. It did not work then.
 
It was painted and very, very old and I would worry about the legs giving out.
 
Jesus told me to replace it a while ago.
 
We had someone come and it never got out of here yet..
Jesus told me to buy a new piano by the alter, behind where Mary's image is to play when we have the services up there.
 
I can only do this if we have the money He says.
 
 
 
We will begin a fund for the piano behind where Mary's image was destroyed on March 1, 2004.
This is a lasting honor to contribute to this.
 
Thanks, Rita

Dear Friend,
 
I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.
 
Jesus asked us to finish one room in the priest house, so a priest could stay there. We have been working on this room for 6 months. We need $3,000 for the carpet, shades and furniture. Could anyone help us with a donation for the priest house to complete this room?

We have been working on the priest house for 6 years. Jesus would like a priest be able to stay there.
 
Thanks
Rita & Doris

Happy Easter!

 

 

               

                April 4, 2013 - Easter Thursday

                R. Jesus is our friend, our beloved.

                The Holy Spirit is our friend.

                God the Father, my Father.

                Weeding out the bad stuff in me to
                    grow in purity –

                We need healing –

                We need to admit sins we committed
                    in relationships and not think
                    we are perfect and keep sinning
                    against innocent others
                    because of our anger, jealousy,
                    pride, loss of power, hatred
                    against ourselves from
                    ourselves.

                God cares about all the details
                    of our lives –

                God is there for us –

                He wants our love and gratitude –

                Dear Holy Spirit –
                    open the Word to me so I am
                        so into it –

                    Help the Mass to be beautiful
                        to me –

                    Help me to see the Church's
                        teachings and let them live
                        in me

                    I am hungry for You my God –
                    I love You!!!

                Jesus: You must forgive those who
                have hurt you –

                Pray the prayers slowly from your heart –

                    It is important to be pure in
                your own heart before you start
                telling others about the spiritual
                life.

                    How have you been hurt in deep
                relationships of love in the past –
                You must look at these and you may
                need to admit how you feel and then
                move into feeling and forgiveness.

                    Say to those you need to (it can
                be to another person, if they are
                dead, or will hurt matters) I
                forgive you and I love you.

                R. God can work when we
                empty our hearts of unforgiveness
                or we are a clogged vessel –
                If we want God to forgive us we
                should forgive others –

                    In our families we are taught how
                to relate, besides our ways which can
                be in us. In families where there is
                dysfunction, addicted behavior,
                rigidity, controlling, competition,
                manipulation, children can be forced
                into survival tactics, ways learned
                to survive the dysfunction.

                    Men that have dealt with women
                who have caused them to lose
                power, may desire never to have any
                woman over them and thus react
                to a woman by standing on their
                head – afraid they will come up
                and crash their manhood, thus
                reacting by always proving they
                are over at any expense. A person
                who lost their power in childhood
                may react this same way with
                others in authority, saying in their
                sub-conscience "no one will ever tell
                me what to do"

                    God has given to each child a
                purpose. The body is a good example
                of how life works in a person. There
                is a stomach and a liver and
                intestines, legs, arms, fingers –
                all are so unique and provide such
                a unique function in the body. The
                heart of the body is vital. A heart
                that quits means the body goes –
                the kidneys to remove poisons and
                wastes – they must function –
                When one has heart trouble they
                must get it fixed or if the heart
                goes out entirely they die.

                    So we see how vital the heart
                is – the center of life, pumping
                in the body, beating – How many
                beats a minute, it is so vital –
                the body pump – the heart!!

                But water is important and air
                is important too – our lungs bring
                in the breath of the body – the
                nose, the throat, the esophagus,
                the bronchial tubes –

                    God has given me a well trained
                tongue, in the morning I awake and
                He gives to me Wisdom and Knowledge
                about Himself and it is not matter,
                it is spiritual and I cannot
                touch it and my heart is happy
                to know more about Him and it
                brings me great joy because
                God gives me grace to love Him
                so very much. God feeds me. I
                am given a more abundant
                sharing in His life in me.

                    But my body exists to serve
                the soul and I need my body to
                live on this earth. My heart
                pumps life to the organs and
                I receive breath through a well
                constructed system of providing
                the air to my body.

                    Let the breath of the Holy Spirit
                move in me like a paint brush
                of fine strokes painting an
                unseen picture on my soul –
                the Holy Spirit gives me Wisdom and
                Understanding and He loves me,
                little me with a profound love –
                He is my best friend and Jesus
                Christ is my beloved Spouse –
                My personal love for God is
                not matter, it is in my heart and
                soul and yet God gives us the Eucharist
                to feed us – The Eucharist – Jesus
                comes to us Body, Blood, Soul
                and Divinity, Jesus feeds me
                with Himself. Jesus gives us
                the Consecrated Host to feed us
                and the Blood of Jesus is our
                drink and He feeds me with
                Himself.

                    It is Presence – the Presence
                of God – Jesus is truly present in
                His Divinity and humanity in
                the Eucharist.

                    Jesus gives me Himself to
                eat, His blood to drink, He
                feeds the life I was given in
                baptism, a sharing in His
                life. This is a mystery –
                God - truly present in the Eucharist
                through the hands of consecrated
                priests. The Holy Spirit comes in the
                Mass, through the hands of
                the priest, bread becomes the
                Body of Jesus and wine – His
                precious Blood and
                    I eat Jesus' Body and
                    I drink Jesus' Blood and
                    He comes to me in
                    Communion
                    Truly present in His
                    Divinity and humanity.

                Jesus feeds me with Himself –

                Jesus my Divine God is so
                    intimately one with me.

                Jesus is one with God, Father and
                    Holy Spirit, so the presence of God
                    is so deeply in me.

                Presence, I know God in
                    my soul.

                I know the special presence
                    of God dwelling in my
                    graced, baptized soul.

                God never leaves me. He
                    loves me, I love Him
                    and I am not alone.

                The drama of the spiritual life –
                    The insight more and more into
                    the mystical body of Christ –

                What a gift baptism is to
                    its members –
                    We are one in Him –
                    God wants this unity in
                    our love for one another and
                    our love for Him.

                God is love –

                God created us in His image
                    and likeness –

                Christ is the Mediator between
                    the Father and us – We are
                    rooted in Him, Christ Jesus.
 


 

                R. We allow the mysteries of Christ's
                    life to shape our lives –
                    living His life, death and resurrection
                    in our lives –

                Dying to ways not like Jesus!!

                Rising in Him!!

                R. Jesus shows us His Heart of love.

                    I realized tonight deeply as I
                prayed in Clearwater, Florida how Mary
                appeared and the intensity of this gift –
                God allowing this so she could communicate
                to me about souls being lost to
                the fires of hell forever – I was
                so one with her sorrow under
                the cross seeing her Son die for
                love of us and I felt so ashamed
                I could not and had not done more to
                try to get people to understand her
                message. The reality I knew of all
                those visits was so deep and its reality
                more real than my surroundings
                here. But what can I do for this
                was a gift to me – to intently
                unite to her and the reality of
                insight into things she brought –
                the knowing of the unseen –
                souls she said were going to
                hell

  

                R. "Tell them", she cried, and I cried to
                know, but be so connected to this
                reality, but so incapable of
                delivering this reality of this
                intense message to men.

 

Mary's Message
from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary:  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.

end of Mary's Message

   

Picture from our Church in China, Indiana

  

                R. I felt so close to her under the cross
                and knowing the reality of this sorrowful
                message of our heavenly Mother made
                me cry deep inside, almost dry
                tears of pain for the emotion was
                so great to know this reality of her
                under the cross and the rebellion of
                man today and the lost souls going
                to hell.
    


    

                R. And yet the message Jesus delivered
                to me - is He is always with me – when
                I am not feeling good, I move away
                from the awareness of this truth He
                reveals to me, how He has a presence
                with me, always and loves me so
                much, to give me this gift –
                Presence – this is reality – God with
                me dwelling in a special way in
                my graced, baptized souls.

 

John 10: 11-15

I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd is one who lays down his life for his sheep. The hired man, since he is not the shepherd and the sheep do not belong to him, abandons the sheep and runs away as soon as he sees a wolf coming, and then the wolf attacks and scatters the sheep; this is because he is only a hired man and has no concern for the sheep. I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for my sheep.

God With Us (excerpt)

  • Rita Robinson Ring states: And we see a pillar against a dark sky. We see Jesus against the darkened sky and the Woman beneath and the scene cries out to earth, "Not my will, but Thine be done", not as spoken words, but the very vivid scene of the New Adam, the Pillar of Light, and the New Eve says this. What do you see as you look at the scene of the New Adam and the New Eve, the New Adam hanging from the tree in the place with a garden?

Do you not see the words as if they are almost written across the sky, "Thy will be done"? See her underneath the cross as she holds Him across her knees. His arms lay limp. And the words go across the sky again, "Not My will, but Thine be done". For He did the Father’s will to His death on the cross. He is placed in the tomb as she cries outside. Behold the most sorrowful Mother. Within her Heart is an understanding of the divine mysteries that far exceeds that of any human person. In her sorrow, in her tears, she knew so deeply the great gift that God sent--Jesus Christ, Emmanuel, the Savior of the world. She knew that her Son had to suffer these things in order to enter into the glory of His resurrection.

And on the day of His resurrection, Mary’s tears were now tears of joy. The victory of her Son has now been accomplished, and the victory will last forever. And on that first Easter morning Mary also knew that all of us, her children, are called to share in her Son’s victory-- His resurrection--now, and especially in eternal life. She is ever pleading with us that with the help of God’s grace we will do all that is necessary to share as fully as possible in the life of Jesus’ resurrection--here and hereafter. She wants Emmanuel to be with us to the greatest degree possible, now and in eternal life

  • Fr. Pedro Arrupe, S.J., tells us: "Christ is God among men, and the Son of Man before God. He is the bridge that spans all chasms and therefore He is the only mediator. He is the sacrament of God in the world and therefore he is our justification. He is the Word that comes from the Father and returns to Him, and therefore He is the key to all creation. His Incarnation and his revelation have made it possible for us to answer the question "Who do men say I am?". But it is necessary to accept and live his word about Himself if it is to grow in us, reproducing the Trinitarian love that confounds all logic: the miracle of love that is a scandal to the Jews, madness to the Gentiles and a thing of no account to the unbelievers of our times".4

  • John Henry Cardinal Newman observes: "This is what it is to be one of Christ’s little ones... to be possessed by His presence as our life, our strength, our merit, our hope, our crown; to become in a wonderful way His members, the instruments, or visible form, or sacramental sign, of the One Invisible Ever-Present Son of God, mystically reiterating in each of us all the acts of His earthly life, His birth, consecration, fasting, temptation, conflicts, victories, sufferings, agony, passion, death, resurrection, and ascension..."5

  • Jesus is with us. He gives us various signs of His love for us. He watches us grow in faith and trust. He is with us as we suffer, knowing that suffering embraced according to the Father’s will, leads us closer to Himself.

Jesus watches us surrender, watches us turn our wills over to Him more and more. He sees us let go of that which He does not want in our lives. As we die more to the false self, He draws us closer to Himself. He is with us as our love for Him grows, and He is overjoyed as this deeper love brings us closer to His Heart.

Jesus is with us as we endure trials that at times seem as though they will never end. He knows that these trials, properly encountered, lead us to greater union with Himself. He is with us as we learn lessons through these trials.

He is with us in each pain and joy, loving us silently, always so much closer to us than we can ever realize.

From the day we were born, Jesus has watched us. He is forever by our side, guarding us, loving us, knowing the most secret desires of our hearts far better than we ourselves. He knows the Father’s plan for us. He knows the Father’s love for us. He knows the intimate workings of the Holy Spirit and, in a subordinate way, of Mary upon us to fashion us more and more according to the image of Himself.

Jesus is with us, oh, so intimately. He helps us grow in the awareness that He has come to give us abundant life. He helps us grow in the awareness that through His Heart, Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell in a most special way within all those who are in the state of grace.

  • Jesus is Emmanuel: "God is with us". He is with us to lead us ever closer to the Father, in the Spirit, with Mary our Mother at our side.

 

The Father's Merciful Love

Pope John Paul II observes: "Jesus Christ was sent by the Father as the revelation of God’s mercy (see John 3:16-18). Christ came not to condemn but to forgive, to show mercy (see Matthew 9:13)...

"No human sin can erase the mercy of God, or prevent Him from unleashing all His triumphant power, if we only call upon Him. Indeed, sin itself makes even more radiant the love of the Father who, in order to ransom a slave, sacrificed His Son: His mercy toward us is redemption. This mercy reaches its fulness in the gift of the Spirit who bestows new life and demands that it be lived.

"No matter how many and great the obstacles put in His way by human frailty and sin, the Spirit, who renews the face of the earth (see Psalms 104:30), makes possible the miracle of the perfect accomplishment of the good. This renewal, which gives the ability to do what is good, noble, beautiful, pleasing to God, and in conformity with His will, is in some way the flowering of the gift of mercy, which offers liberation from the slavery of evil and gives the strength to sin no more. Through the gift of new life, Jesus makes us sharers in His love and leads us to the Father in the Spirit."6

  

The Holy Spirit

Here are words of Pope John Paul II: "The Holy Spirit, in his mysterious bond of divine communion with the Redeemer of man, is the one who brings about the continuity of his work; he takes from Christ and transmits to all, unceasingly entering into the history of the world through the heart of man... he becomes the ‘sweet guest of the soul’, whom the Church unceasingly greets on the threshold of the inmost sanctuary of every human being. For he brings ‘rest and relief’ in the midst of toil, in the midst of the work of human hands and minds; he brings ‘rest’ and ‘ease’ in the midst of the heat of the day, in the midst of the anxieties, struggles and the perils of every age; he brings ‘consolation’, when the human heart grieves and is tempted to despair... Therefore, he purifies from everything that ‘disfigures’ man, from ‘what is unclean;’ he heals even the deepest wounds of human existence; he changes the interior dryness of souls, transforming them into the fertile fields of grace and holiness.

"What is ‘hard He softens,’ what is ‘frozen he warms,’ what is ‘wayward He sets anew’ on the paths of salvation."7

Mary

St. Louis de Montfort has been one of the greatest apostles regarding devotion to Mary. Here are some of his thoughts:

"Just as in natural and bodily generation there is a father and a mother, so in the supernatural and spiritual generation there is a father who is God and a mother who is Mary.

"... God the Son wishes to form himself, and, in a manner of speaking, become incarnate every day in his members through his dear Mother.

"... Moreover, Jesus is still as much as ever the fruit of Mary, as heaven and earth repeat thousands of times a day, ‘Blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus’. It is therefore certain that Jesus is the fruit and gift of Mary for every single man who possesses him, just as truly as he is for all mankind. Consequently, if any of the faithful have Jesus formed in their heart they can boldly say, ‘It is thanks to Mary that what I possess is Jesus, her fruit, and without her I would not have him.’

"...When the Holy Spirit, her spouse, finds Mary in a soul, he hastens there and enters fully into it. He gives himself generously to that soul according to the place it has given to his spouse. One of the main reasons why the Holy Spirit does not now work striking wonders in souls is that he fails to find in them a sufficiently close union with his faithful and inseparable spouse."8

The Eucharist (excerpt)

From Rita Robinson Ring, a spiritual journal: "Go to the tabernacle. Jesus will give us our answers. He is waiting for us to come. We must come and sit in silence and let Him work in our hearts. We must not be filled with fear, we should be filled with hope and joy. We must pray to the Holy Spirit to give us His wisdom to know the will of the Father. Mary is our Mother. She will help us with all our trials and all of our struggles. We must discipline our thoughts and go to the Heart of Jesus. It is through the Eucharist that we will be strengthened for our trials.

"We may have to face many sufferings; we will not be harmed. We are being protected by our heavenly Mother, she spreads her mantle over us. We must surrender to the Heart of Jesus and to the Heart of Mary. We must be deeply united in Their Hearts. We must meditate on the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit within us. We must pray for the grace to know and love God more. We should pray to the Father, in union with Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in the Holy Spirit, through the powerful intercession of the Virgin Mary."

 

 

From Blue Book 10

February 13, 1996

R. On February 13th (after much suffering) the more I focus on the self, the more I got the self. I must go beyond the self to God: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God lives in the graced, baptized soul. Jesus wants us to admit it when we are wrong, not to look for excuses and justification, to say we are sorry to our Heavenly Father and to be so sorrowful for offending God. Jesus calls us to holiness. He wants us to strive to be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect.

    Jesus asks, do you not know how much I love you yet, after all I have written to you, after all I have done for you! If you do not know and love Me, the one I talk to, how do you expect others to love Me?

    Jesus left me to Myself, it felt like. He left me operate on my own power and I felt sick inside. I need Him. I want Him. He is my beginning and my end.

    I am clogged, I cannot move. The last two 13ths I went through such sufferings. If I am to fly on eagle's wings, I must go beyond the self, die to myself, live in the Spirit, live in Him. He says, "My yoke is easy and My burden light." To focus on self keeps me hurled to the ground. My life is in Him.

    To feel disconnected to people we love and divided with others, we love, is great suffering. So if we know this can we imagine being divided with Jesus? Can we imagine hell – being void of God forever? My depth in union with Him depends on how I let go of myself. When I suffer His pain I cannot express it. I can only endure it. Jesus sweat blood. We must identify our pain with His, our life with His life, live His life in our life. Such a connection between love and suffering. He shows us Their Hearts with thorns - love endures pain, love leaves itself open to another. I love to give His love. Jesus lives in me.

    I never ever knew the abandonment I felt, I wanted to cry from all the pain I felt within. Nothing can express the sadness in my heart; nothing can express a life empty of God! To be rooted in the self, is to abandon yourself, because we are to be rooted in God. The self cries out for life. The stubborn mind and the will opposed to God's will continue to hold back the real source of life – God!

    Only in yielding your will totally to His will, will we be happy. To hold back on being united to God is to disconnect from the source of life. My life in Him depends on how much I surrender to Him.

    I will have life in me depending on how I surrender myself, surrender to all joy and suffering – He intends me to endure. For most of my life I go back to the self for many answers, especially to suffering. It is in suffering we unite more deeply in Him – we can identify with Him in suffering, rejection, loneliness, physical pain in being divided with those who are working against what God wants. For as we unite to His suffering we experience His life. I cannot do this. I need Him. I say the Prayer for Union with Jesus.

    I cannot express the pain, I can only endure it – that is why He sweat blood. I cannot express myself, only endure the pain when I get a mystical experience.

    I cannot express Mary's pain – that is why she has swords in her heart, that is why her tears are so powerful when offered to the Father.

    There are 3 Persons in One God. Jesus did His Father's will to His death on the cross.


Excerpt from Response to God's Love by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

... In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

    The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ.
 

R. There is such a connection between love and suffering. That is why He shows us His Heart with thorns. We see Jesus and Mary's Hearts. Love is giving, to love we make ourselves open to suffering. Jesus gave His all. Jesus was rejected by many. He allows us to suffer rejection and pain with those we love. We must identify with Him in this suffering. He was treated with indifference and disrespect. We may be treated with disrespect and indifference, we identify with Jesus.

    To love is to be open to suffering:
    He loved – He sweat blood
    He loved – He gave His all.
    Love endures pain.
    In the garden, He suffered so much to His Heart.

Jesus: I was scorned. I gave and I gave. I gave My love for you. I gave to those who whipped Me. I sweat Blood. I knew all the rejection. Agonies to give and know the rejection of men from all time. Agony of Agonies. I was rejected by those I loved so much and died for.

R. While He was giving, He knew all the other times He gave Himself in the Eucharist and remained in the tabernacle and would be rejected. That is why it is so important now to give Him our burning love, because it was such sweetness in His bitter Passion.

    Jesus' pain was so great for His beloved religious that would be unfaithful lovers. That is why a holy priest or Sister gives Him such joy. Let us pray that the priests and Sisters are the greatest lovers of Jesus, He loves them so much!

    Love presupposes the cross. The life we share was paid for with His bitterest suffering. I feel the oneness of God, but especially since the experience of December 15th.
 

Excerpt from the Mass Book - December 17, 1995

    I touched eternity, and in that embrace, I knew all the waiting was worth the glory. You enveloped my being, and I was truly merged in the Divine Presence. I was merged in Your being. I existed IN You, with You, in the highest union with You, although I knew I was still distinct from You.
 

R. When I have an apparition there is a movement I cannot explain. It is not a body movement. It is not as we see ever, but there is a definite movement. There is a haze. There is a change as I see Mary, old-to-young, different clothes, but it is as if I don't ever see it change and I don't ever see it distinctly – it moves without seeing the movement.

    When I saw Jesus in front of Immaculata it is the same thing. Jesus looked glistening. Jesus was transfigured, before me, Jesus changed. However, I do not see the movement when it occurs. Sometimes when I am there I see nothing. Usually when I see something, I am so connected to Him, loving Him so much. My soul is undisturbed and I am given a grace. I am given a great grace to love Him and I have lost myself as I exist in Him.

    It is a wonderful feeling, as it was on the 15th of December, to be in Him because fear and weak thinking that can hold you back are gone. There is not fear when I am on the other side. I am lost in Him and I know the presence of all three Persons.

    I see things in the light and it is wonderful! I cannot bring it on. The intensity of what goes on inside is far greater than the vision but the vision permeates me as it is an experience that changes my perception of things and enhances my understanding of some mystery.

    I see this action of the Holy Spirit in Mary's heart as what I see when I see a vision which I cannot explain. It is similar to what was on the video on September 5th, but glistening and alive.

    The video of September 5th made it more concrete , it isn't exactly like that. To explain in human terms is impossible for me.

    I wish I had a video of my experience of December 31, 1995, though it is impossible to video a spiritual experience. There is a glistening. There is a movement, but the movement is undetected. The Grotto was there, glistening every rock and then it disappeared entirely. Mary was almost transparent and then she had the most beautiful skin. Like I could touch her, it can be this glistening, hazy, transparent appearance, the whole vision. I don't believe I ever saw skin like that on the face of Mary as I did on December 31st!

    This is what the action of the Spirit in Mary's heart looks like to me: It is white and glistening and fuzzy and active, real active and as I am actively worked on, time elapses and I feel out of time, aware only of the presence in the red cavern of His Heart or her Heart. In His Heart it is red and hollow, glowing, without an end, a definite sensation of endlessness and it is there in the endlessness I unite to the Father.

    The action takes place almost simultaneously but there is a progress in the events as Mary's heart comes first, first it comes, then the cavern, then the Father. It is there that I have immense peace and sense of being full, experiencing joy in many visions.

    On December 15th there was no cracks, I was elevated to this high level of human existence, existing only in Him or so it seemed to me. His dominance was all I felt but I was in no way non-existent. I was swept in love's embrace and I know to this day from this, a little of what it is to be absorbed by God's love, to unite to love itself!

    This is how it is: I unite to God. I know all three Persons. I know three Persons when I unite in this moment and my heart knows such satisfaction in Him.

    It is fire. I cry. It is beyond my human capabilities it seems. The tears are a release of the body to the awareness of the presence of God.

    With each Person, as I unite, the sense of being full is greater (as I say, this goes on almost simultaneously, but there is a progression). This is my burning love of God, beyond words and beyond this paper. I am trying to write this as best I can.

    I unite to God in this deep mystical experience. So many times my intimacy with Him is less a description of the whole picture – it varies how wide the understanding is. We know He calls us to love Him and love one another, to be joined in One Heart.

    The Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph and the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign when we are joined in One Heart and One Mind – all men together, a sufficient number, giving themselves in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

    Think of the Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles, as in Acts: All these with one mind, continued steadfastly in prayer. Think of what it would be like if all men were in one mind and one heart in God, living in His will, in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Excerpts from The Spirituality of Fatima  by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

"But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world." (13)

    Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. (19)

NOTES:

13. For background material on Fatima, I am particularly indebted to Our Lady of Fatima's Peace Plan from Heaven
      (Rockford: TAN Books and Publishers, Inc., 1983). p.5.
19. Ibid., pp.9-10.

R. When all are consecrated, in one mind and one heart, think of this.

    The love of God is deeply imbedded in the heart. Jesus shows us His Heart surrounded by thorns. Jesus shows us His Heart - Jesus shows us the pain. Love gives of oneself, opens oneself to suffering. The love of Jesus comes with the cross and the thorns.

    Jesus' love is enhanced when I unite with a chosen soul. He teaches me about love by loving others deeply.

    We must join in one heart with each other. This expands our heart and we feel His love through others.

    As I love one person more deeply, the love reverberates to all others in my life.

    The message to be delivered to this world is: the hungry soul longs to be fed. We are fed with the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, through the heart of Mary, in the Holy Spirit, in such oneness with the Father.

    This is the fire of God's love. My heart burns for love of Jesus.

 

February 4, 1996

R. I give my all, my all, my all. I give Him His work, so I give myself to the Spirit - and let the Spirit move in me.

    If He wants me to be holy and get the job done, He has to make me more holy so I can do His work. I will do a better job the more I am one in Him. To be one in Him I must be holy. Jesus, I pray please make me holy to work more united to You.

    Take me, Use me, Live in me, Make me like You!

    I give You - everything I possess – everything!

 

 

R. On December 17, 1991, I had a vision of Jesus' open Heart.

Picture of Jesus' Heart on fire.

 

February 20, 1996

Before the Tabernacle

Sorrowful Mysteries

The Agony in the Garden

R. The Heart of Jesus - the Heart of Jesus is the gateway to the love of the Almighty God. In order to unite in deepest love with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, to know that presence within, we must go and dwell in the Heart of Jesus, the Heart of endless love.

1. R. The Heart that was wounded so greatly in the Garden, filled with such pain, buckled over for the love of His precious ones - that is rejected this day by so many, but He gives to us such abundant love in this rosary. Let us meditate on the love of the Almighty God through the Heart of Jesus, the Heart of burning love.

2. R. Let us see the Heart of Jesus within His chest as He knelt in the Garden. Let us see the Heart, (the vision of the Heart as I saw this Heart on December 17, 1991 - the picture of which is on the front of God's Blue Book II.) Picture that Heart in your mind. See the red around the outside, the layer of yellow and inside this very Heart, the most intense white – the white heat of His love.

3. R. God so loved this world that He sent into this world His only begotten Son that all who believed in Him might be saved. It is through the Heart of Jesus that we unite in such oneness with the Father, feeling the permeating action of the Holy Spirit. Let us pray for the grace in this rosary to be joined ever closer to this Heart of endless love, to be surrounded by this love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as we go through the gateway of this Heart to the infinite love of God. This is what our soul craves - this burning love. His love is burning and on fire. It is we who close our hearts, that keep ourselves from realizing the full intensity of this love, for we think that the love that He gives to us is words, lip service love, but Jesus comes and Jesus shows us His Heart. He shows us the love that He has for us, that He gave Himself and we do not understand.

    Let us pray for the grace to understand that Jesus is love and Jesus wants to give to us His love now.

4. R. As we all unite in this Heart of Jesus in the deepest center, in the white heart of His love, we will be one with each other. We know more fully the love of God as we love each other and we love each other more fully as we know the love of God. Let us open our hearts and let Jesus speak to us in this rosary, that we may be joined ever closer to this burning furnace of endless love.

5. R. Jesus gave to us His holy Mother. Mary is the Mother of our spiritual life. Mary leads us closer and closer to this burning furnace of love. Who are we, with all our sins, that we could dwell in Jesus' Heart? If we go to the pure and holy heart of Mary, if we give ourselves entirely to her heart, she places us deeply within this Heart of burning love. How Jesus suffered so much in the Garden – so much anguish to His Heart for the rejection, for the indifference, for the neglect of so many souls that He loved so dearly, that He came into this world and took on a human body and gave Himself for us!

6. Song: I Love You Jesus

7. R. Envision kneeling next to Jesus in the Garden and see Him as Jesus' sweat became great drops of blood on the ground. We do not even realize a small amount the deep love that He has for us. Let us envision in our minds clearly a man, stooped over, sweating blood for love of us. This is the love that Jesus has for each one of us and He is as present in this room in the Holy Eucharist, as He was that day that He knelt in the Garden when Jesus sweat His most precious blood.

8. R. It is in dwelling in the heart of Mary and giving ourselves to Mary in the act of consecration, of giving ourselves to Mary, that the Holy Spirit begins to work in us, sanctifying us more and more. Know the Spirit in us. The Holy Spirit works to transform us more and more to be like Jesus and Mary. Mary places us in the Heart of her Son and it is there, in that deep inner chamber of Jesus' Heart that we unite in such oneness with our Father. This is what heaven is - to be embraced by the love of the Almighty God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. To know the burning love of God, this is truly what our souls crave, but we shy away from the white heart of His love. Why do we not open our hearts when this is what our hearts are craving? Nothing feeds the starved soul but the love of God.

9. R. See the agony and the pain on the face of Jesus. See Him humped over and watch the blood as it drips to the ground, for Jesus tells us in this rosary of His deep and burning love. We shut ourselves off and we continue to look elsewhere for that which will feed the starved soul.

Song: I Love You Jesus

10. Hail Mary

   

The Scourging at the Pillar

R.  Who is My Mother? Who is My brother? Who is My brother – anyone who does the Will of My Father! You do not understand that God has a plan for us and it is only in living according to His will that we will be happy. Jesus shows us in this sorrowful mystery that He did the will of the Father to His death on the cross. Jesus, the Son of God, shows us He obeyed the Father's will. Why do we try to do our own will when we know that the real way to happiness is to follow His will?

1. R. The greatest commandment of all commands us to love God with our whole heart, our whole soul and our whole being and to love our neighbor as ourselves. It is in living according to the Father's will and with greatest love that we please the Father. Jesus gave His life to please His Father. Jesus shows us the way. Why are we so willful in our actions that we do not surrender and do as He asks us to do, for it is the only way that we will find true happiness?

2. R. Jesus places His hands on both sides of His Heart and gives us His Heart and we tap so lightly on this Heart of burning love. He invites us to enter deeply into His Heart but we stay on the outside and look in.

3. R. We must give our hearts to the heart of our Mother. Mary will place us deeply in her heart, for her heart dwells within Jesus' Heart. I see Jesus at the pillar, bound, whipped and covered with blood. The Almighty God, at any moment, could have released Himself but He always complied to the will of God the Father.

4. R. Jesus shows us this Heart. Let us look at this burning Heart of love. Let us see the picture on the front of the second Blue Book and see the intense furnace of burning love. It is in the center of this Heart that we unite to this deep love with the Father. Let us go to the Heart of Mary and dwell within the Heart of Our Savior.

5. R. Jesus was scourged for the love of all our beloved brothers. Jesus loves each and every person with the deepest love. I cannot unite to this fiery furnace of burning love if there is any hatred or anger in my heart for any person, for to be in the center of His Heart, my heart must be filled with love.

6. R. Do we want to truly know the love of God? To be wrapped in His loving embrace? To dwell in the hottest white center of His Heart that leads to such union with our beloved Father and the Holy Spirit? If we want this union with the Almighty God, if we want to be permeated by His Divine Love and His Divine Life, then we must live to love, always love, to not give into any taunting by Satan to divide us from others, for to be divided with any person that Jesus loves is to divide ourselves from Jesus. The devil tries to get us focused on thoughts of division toward our brothers. Jesus shows us His Heart burning and filled with love. To be united to this Heart we must give up any thoughts against our brothers. In the center of His Heart is the deepest burning love. It is only in love that we will dwell there. To be divided with those Jesus loves divides us from the Heart of Jesus.

7. R. Feel the freedom of letting go and forgiving. Ask the Holy Spirit to come and fill us with the fire of God's love, to transform us from all those things that are not like God so that we may be more deeply united to the Heart of Jesus.

8. R. I see Jesus standing at the pillar and Jesus is whipped so harshly by those angry men and His blood flies into the air. This is the love that Jesus has for every soul, that Jesus suffered this persecution, that He allowed His body to be beaten and bloodied. How can I love God and not love my brother? We are one family. In order to be united, we must go to the Heart of Jesus and in our heart have love for all men as Jesus loved all men - that He gave His life for them!

9. R. We see all children of God. God is our Father. Mary is our Mother. Let us all dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and unite in the deepest oneness in the center of Jesus' Heart.

10. Hail Mary

 

The Crowing of Thorns

R. Let Jesus take us to the deepest chamber of His Heart. Let us feel the presence of the Almighty God. Let us be surrounded by this endless love. It is not a lip service love, it is a love that Jesus suffered so that He was beaten with deep wounds, that His head was crowned with piercing thorns, that the blood ran all over His face, that He gave Himself for love of us! This is what He asks of us - to give Him our heart. Let us give our heart to Jesus and Mary that we will be joined in such oneness with all of our brothers and sisters in this world, as we dwell within the Heart of Jesus.

1. Hail Mary
2. Hail Mary
3. Hail Mary

4. R. Bloodied, bruised and beaten - this is the love that Jesus has for us and He asks us to love one another.

5. R. Why do we hold onto the resentments and the anger within our heart toward our brothers when Jesus loves them so much that He suffered, was beaten - His flesh torn, His head crowned with thorns - for all of our brothers? He loved those who tore His flesh. If I want to be united in this deepest love with Jesus, I must pray for the grace to forgive and love all as He loved all to His death.

Jesus: You are the lights that I am sending into this world, into the darkness, to show the world My love. You are called by Me. I am Jesus, your beloved Savior. I have called you to this rosary to give this message to you. My way is the way of love. Come to My Heart - My Heart is burning and on fire for love of you. Feel deeply the love that I have to give you. Share your love with each other. I give to you one another to love. Satan wants to divide you. You must not give in to any thoughts that turn your hearts against your brothers.

6. Jesus: Guard your tongues as the doorway to your hearts.

7. Jesus: Let all words that you speak be words of love. Do not be angered at your brother. Do not judge or criticize your brothers. My way is the way of love. You are My apostles that I have called and I am sending into the world to spread the messages of My love. You must be loving in your ways. Come to My Heart and I will fill you with My burning love. Let go. Do not think tainted thoughts - let Me teach you in your heart, My way.

8. Jesus: Do not go to this world to learn about love. You must come to Me for I will teach you My way, in your heart, let your hearts be pure, like Mary, not jealous, envious, prideful or angry.

9. Jesus: Love is kind, love is giving. Love is caring. Giving because of a loving heart. I am Jesus. I give to you Myself. Come to Me and I will fill you with a heart of love.

10. Hail Mary

 

The Carrying of the Cross

R. As Lent progresses, let us have the Passion of Jesus forever before our eyes, for it is in suffering according to God's way, that we experience new life.

1. R. Let us unite all of the struggles, all of the problems, everything in our life, to the life of Jesus. Let us walk with Him each day as He walked during His life. Let us identify everything in our life with Him.

Our every breath, our every action - united to Jesus - all for the glory of God.

2. R. Let us take everything that He gives as a gift that He is giving for us to grow deeper and deeper in our love relationship with God. We must be grateful for His grace to us to help us be loving and be all God wants us to be.

3. R. Let us study the relationship between Jesus and His Mother - the deep love between Jesus and Mary, between Divinity and humanity. Let us see the joining of Their Hearts in such oneness, that we will love one another more like the love of the Two Hearts. Let us join in the heart of Mary and the Heart of Jesus, to be one with them in deepest love.

4. R. Mary stood by Jesus' side and Mary walked with Jesus through all of Jesus' struggles, through all of His heartaches. Let us model our lives after our beloved Mother. Let us live as Christ would live in us.

5. R. We see the coldness and the pain in the faces of those we encounter each day. They do not even look up to talk, they walk and they do not even see the persons that are close to them. Let us be the lights that go out into the darkness, our hearts filled with Jesus' love and let Him operate through us to love in this world as we unite in deepest union to Jesus.

6. R. Are our hearts cold and embittered? Are our hearts warm and loving? Let us look to the Heart of Jesus. As we see this vision on the Second Blue Book, Jesus' Heart is burning with endless love. Let us love one another with this love. The love that gives the love that cares, the love that sees, the love that is focused on God for Jesus asks us to do two things – He commands us to do two things: To love God with our whole heart, our whole soul, our whole being, and to love one another as we love ourselves.

7. R. How do we respond to the love that God gives to us? Are our hearts cold and embittered or are our hearts filled with deep love for each other?

8. R. Jesus carried the cross on His back, covered with blood, and they poked at Him and they pushed Him and He fell to the ground - and Jesus loved all those that tore His flesh.

9. Song: Teach Me to Love with Your Heart

10. Hail Mary

 

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the cross

R. Oh, beloved Jesus, truly present in the tabernacle, give us the grace to realize this great gift we are given to cherish every single moment that we are in the presence of the Almighty God, to never take this for granted, to thank You endlessly for the great gift You have given to us: the gift of Yourself, that You are truly present. The gift that You give us in the Holy Eucharist and Your Heart was in such anguish in the Garden, Your Heart of deepest love for all the souls that would treat You with such ignorance.

    My Precious One, let me help make reparation to Your most adorable Heart for what You suffered for Your beloved souls who have forgotten You. Jesus cries out to us. Jesus wants us during this Lent to come ever closer to His Heart. To see Him as He hung on the cross. To carry this cross with us wherever we go, to look at the wounds in His hands and His feet and the crown of thorns on His head. To see His blood covered face and the wound in His side. Jesus wants us to carry His life within us, to be one in Him, to die to all of those things that are not like Him that we may live more and more as He lives in us.

1. R. Let us unite all through the day with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and unite ourselves with such oneness with Jesus and give ourselves to the Father as He gave Himself on the cross. Let us surrender our lives to God.

2. R. If we want to dwell deeply with Jesus' Heart we must give ourselves to Him. We must give ourselves, give our heart to Mary and give our heart to Jesus and what we will receive in return is a deeper and deeper relationship with this Heart of burning love.

3. R. Mary said at Fatima, "until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, there will not be peace in this world." Let us give our hearts to Jesus and to Mary and let us live deeply in Jesus' Heart that our every act will be an act of love toward our beloved brothers for we are one family in Him.

4. Song: Let there be Peace on Earth

5. R. At every Mass let us offer ourselves to the Father and tell Him that we want to die to those things that are not like Him and ask the Spirit to sanctify us more and more to be like Jesus, that we will unite deeper and deeper with Jesus in His Most Sacred Heart.

6. R. It is in the deepest recesses of Jesus' Heart that we unite to our beloved Father. Jesus and the Father are one. We want to be one with God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The more we dwell deeply in the Heart of Jesus, the more we are one with God.

7. R. Let us focus all through the day, focus on Jesus and taking refuge in His Heart when others are around us and they do things that disturb us. When Satan wants us to think thoughts of division, let us go to the Heart of Jesus and ask Him to let us know His burning love.

8. Jesus: I call you to love. I call you to come to My Heart. You are My beloved ones that I am sending into this world in this Shepherds of Christ Movement. I am giving to you abundant graces to grow deeper in your union with Me. Will you answer this call? My beloved ones, who will I send if you turn away?

9. R. Let us feel the permeating action of the Spirit within us as we unite deeper and deeper to the Heart of Jesus and let us be the little dependent children of the Father, always living in His will, living to please Him as a little child.

10. Jesus: This is My message to you, My beloved Shepherds in this movement: I am calling you to My Heart, to the deepest recesses of My Heart. It is there that you will have peace and joy in your lives. Come to Me and consecrate your hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

R. Let us study the love between the Hearts of Jesus and Mary for love is kind. We want to love more and more like Jesus for love that is rooted in Him is beyond all comprehension. Let us give our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and feel this love as it grows in our hearts.

 

               

January 9, 1996

Shepherds of Christ Meeting

Sorrowful Mysteries

R. Let us put ourselves in this room and feel very, very close to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Let us see His burning Heart, filled with such love for each one of us and know that as we are here, that He is guarding our every breath and our every heartbeat, in deepest love, that we are never alone and that He is forever with us.

The Agony of Our Lord in the Garden

1. R. Let us be with Jesus as He knelt in the garden, put ourselves there against that darkened night and feel the anguish that He felt in His Heart: To know all the sins, of all men, from all times, all the ugly, terrible sins, from the beginning to this present time!

2. R. The anguish was so great in His Heart for Jesus loves each and every soul so much that He gave Himself for love of them.

3. R. As we meditate on the mysteries of the rosary we see the life of Jesus and how He lived. He came to show us the way and His way was sacrifice. As we meditate on these mysteries of the rosary, these sorrowful mysteries, let us see His way. His way is the way of sacrifice.

4. R. Look at all of the terms that are used this day - terms that are used for love. Love is giving of oneself. As we meditate on these mysteries of this rosary, let us see how Jesus gave Himself in greatest love of us. Let us think in our mind how He gives Himself to us this day in the Holy Eucharist. We received Him.

5. R. The world cries out to be fed – the world that is hurting and in pain, that is so involved in such vile deeds, when Jesus comes with a gentle and kind Heart and gives Himself to us. How many reject His love? How He suffered in the Garden, with such pain and anguish in His Heart, for He loves with the deepest love and He cries out for us to come and be so close to Him. He is ignored and forgotten and treated with such disrespect. His name is used in vain, but not spoken with love many times as it should be. We should be kind to Jesus and He loves us so much.

6. R. Jesus calls out how He wants everyone to know how much He loves and we do not hear these words because we do not want to sacrifice. We think that we can do it our way. Jesus comes and He shows us the way. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Nothing feeds the starved soul but the love of God.

7. R. Jesus' apostles slept. Jesus calls out to us this day, "Can you not watch one hour with Me?" Who are we that God loves us so much that the Father sent, His only begotten Son into this world and that He gave Himself for love of us on the cross? Jesus gives Himself to us this day in the Holy Eucharist. When we receive the Holy Eucharist, when we are so deeply connected to Him, tell Him how we want to help make reparation to His Heart for all of the neglect and indifference against His precious Heart.

8. R. You know how it is to love someone so much and to be rejected. Jesus is love. Jesus loves with the most perfect love. How His Heart was in anguish for the rejection of those that He loved so dearly. Jesus knelt in the Garden against the darkened night. We walk in this world, this day, that is clouded and surrounded by darkness and as He lives in us we become the lights that shine in this darkness. Let us, in this rosary, open up our hearts wide and let Him unite, deeper and deeper, to us, that He will live in us, more and more and shine His light to this darkened world through us.

9. Hail Mary

The Scourging of Our Lord at the Pillar

Song: Come unto me all who are weary and find rest for your soul

1. R. So many times in this world today we are persecuted in the workplace, by those that we come in contact with, for professing our love of God. Jesus is alive and He lives in our hearts. As we meditate on this mystery, see Jesus bound to the pillar, His hands tied, and look at the faces of the men who beat Jesus.

2. Jesus: They will laugh at you, My beloved ones. I am Jesus. I am calling to you to be strong soldiers in this world, to stand as lights, that shine, in the darkest night.

3. R. Jesus' way is love. His way is always love. We see Him bound at the pillar in perfect peace. Jesus did not resist His attackers. Jesus, the Son of God, accepted all that was given to Him.

4. R. Look at the world today and see how the world talks about love.

5. R. Then look at the face of Jesus. See the wounds, to His head from the men that beat Him, the wounds that covered His back, the raw wounds. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Jesus came to show us the way - His way is sacrifice.

6. R. Jesus gave Himself that we could share in His life.

7. R. All through the day we go through struggles. It is in accepting these struggles that we live and we share in His life, death and resurrection in our lives. Let the light of Jesus shine from us to the world that is so covered with darkness. Let our hearts be open and let His radiant love flow from us to this world.

8. R. Look at Jesus as He stands at the pillar and see the men as they beat Him, as they raise their arms and the whips come down and tear His precious skin. This is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He gives Himself for us. We do not realize how dearly He truly loves us. Who are we that God put on a human body and allowed Himself to be scourged and beaten for love of us and we whimper and complain about the little crosses we are asked to bear when they are great gifts that He gives us to share more fully in His life.

9. Hail Mary
10. Hail Mary

 

The Crowning with Thorns

R. Jesus comes and He shows us His Heart, surrounded by thorns, thorns that press into His Heart for the indifference and the neglect of those He loves so dearly.

1. R. Do we know how Jesus longs for us to come to Him and to tell Him how much we love Him? How He wants us to talk to Him all through the day. How He is attentive at every moment and loves us and cares for every single thing that we do. Jesus cares for us more than any human person could love us, He wants us to talk to Him.

2. R. How these words of love comforted Jesus during His bitter Passion - the words that we speak to Him today, when we go to Him and tell Him our heartfelt love and tell Him, Jesus, Jesus how I love you, how I love you - Jesus, my beloved!

3. R. They pounded into His precious head, a sharp crown of piercing thorns, that pierced His skull in so many places. The red blood from our Savior ran down His head, down His face, and into His hair. This is the love He shows us – a head crowned with thorns and a face smeared with dripping blood.

4. R. Jesus tenderly tells us over and over again: I love you, I love you! How do we respond to this love given from our precious Jesus? He loves to hear us all through the day, tell Him how much we love Him.

5. R. Do we pray at church, or pray when we are quiet in our room and then leave the room and when we are with others forget how one in us, He wants to be? How Jesus wants to operate through us as we go about our way in this world. Jesus wants to be one in us in all of our actions. Jesus wants us to know that in all of our cares that He is listening and He is by us, Jesus is comforting us.

6. Song: I Love You Jesus

7. Hail Mary
8. Hail Mary
9. Hail Mary
10. Hail Mary

R. How tenderly He loves us that He gave Himself for love of us.

 

Jesus Carries His Cross

R. Jesus stood, His hands were tied and Jesus was surrounded by those He came to save, by those He loved, by those He was willing to give His life for. Jesus stood there silent and the crowd shouted, "Crucify Him, Crucify Him!"

1. R. How many times today do we feel that we are alone in this world? We are so close to God and the world seems to be so far from God. Do we hear the crowd? They called to Jesus, crucify Him, crucify Him - Jesus, the Son of God was rejected by those He came to save - why should we think that we will be treated any differently this day when we go into the world and talk about Jesus?

2. R. They gave to Jesus a heavy cross that He carried on His back and He fell to the ground. I see His face against the ground and the cross on His back. How many times today do we try so hard to spread the love of Jesus and we are met with such opposition and rejection? We know in our hearts His deep and burning love. We are the lights that He is sending into this darkened world filled with His grace and His love.

3. R. (Mary is illuminated and lights are flashing all around her.) This is our Sorrowful Mother with a sword in her heart and how many times I have sat here and heard her call out to deliver this message of burning love to this world, to come to the Eucharist and be filled as He outpours His grace. The grace that He gives to us whereby we participate more fully in His life. We see our Sorrowful Mother with a sword in her heart and we vow to go into this world and to carry that light in the darkness. Our hearts are filled with love of her Son. We beg you, Mary, to ask your Spouse, the Holy Spirit, to give us all that we need, to do what You are asking of us.

4. R. Jesus comes with a gentle and kind Heart, a Heart that is filled with burning love for love of us. Jesus' greatest agonies are not the agonies suffered to His body, the flesh that was torn, the crowning with thorns - they were the agonies suffered to His most precious Heart filled with the deepest love for men. (She is so beautiful!)

5. Song: A Song from Jesus

R. Let us thank God for all the great graces that He has given to us and let us return to Him our great love.

6. R. Jesus fell three times on the way to Calvary. How many times do we fall and we want to give up. Then we go to Him and He fills our hearts with His burning love. Let us thank Jesus for allowing us to share in His life, whether it be suffering or joy, to walk in the world with Jesus and to share in His life.

7. R. Let us go to that heart of the Sorrowful Mother that watched her Son Jesus as He fell to the ground. Jesus' hands were nailed to the cross. Let us go to her heart and ask her to help us love her Son, Jesus, through her heart as she loved her Son Jesus.

8. Hail Mary
9. Hail Mary
10. Hail Mary

 

Jesus was Crucified and Dies on the Cross

R. The beloved cross of Jesus, the cross that the Savior died on. Let us forever keep before our eyes the cross of Christ, for in this vision, we know more fully, His tremendous love for us. Let us see Jesus on the crucifix and love the crucifix. Look at Jesus' hands that are pierced with the nails, think of how Jesus hung and of how they tore the tissue from Jesus' hands. Let us meditate on the wounds of our Savior. These are the wounds of His love for us.

1. R. Jesus gave Himself for love of us. At every Mass let us unite with the sacrifice of Jesus, to the Father, that we may die to those ways that are not like His, that we may offer ourselves as a sacrifice with Jesus, to the Father - the most pleasing sacrifice to the Father, the gift of His Son!

2. R. Let us unite with the priest at those precious moments when the bread is changed into the Body of Christ and the wine is changed into His Blood - this gift that takes place in every Mass through the hands of the priest, what a gift it is. Let us pray for greater grace to participate more fully in this gift of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

3. R. We join in this intimate act of love between Divinity and humanity when God gives Himself to us. Let us give ourselves to Him and not hold anything back.

4. R. In this most intimate act, God gives Himself to us in the Holy Eucharist. We search and we look for love, when nothing on the face of the earth can compare to this great gift that God gives to us in the Mass. Jesus gives Himself to us in the Holy Eucharist. I see Him hanging on the cross, Jesus' head and Jesus' face covered with blood. Jesus' pierced hands and feet pierced. This is our beloved Savior. Jesus gave Himself! Jesus' Heart pierced with a lance. Jesus gives Himself to us today. Jesus is neglected and treated with such indifference, such irreverence and such disrespect, when we should be in such awe for what we are given in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

    Let us, at every Eucharist, help make reparation to Jesus' adorable Heart for the injustices and the offenses against Him. Let us make reparation to the Heart of our beloved Mother for the blasphemies against her Immaculate Heart. Let us keep forever the cross of Christ before our eyes and love the cross that we know more and more, His deep and burning love for us. It is Death/Resurrection. In baptism we receive a sharing in His life. In suffering we can grow in greater life in Him.

5. Hail Mary
6. Hail Mary
7. Hail Mary

8. R. Let us make the Stations very often. It is in walking the Way of the Cross in the Stations with Him that we understand more and more the Passion and Way of the Cross and so His immense love for us. See Mary as she holds the lifeless body of her Son in her arms under the cross. Jesus always did the Father's will. Mary always complied to the Father's will. It is in following the Father's will that we will have peace and joy in our lives. I see Jesus in her arms under the cross. To Jesus' death He complied to the Father's will. This is the love that Jesus has for us - that Jesus gave Himself on the cross, and He gives Himself to us this day in the Holy Eucharist. He calls out, "tell them, Rita, tell them, how I long for their love, how I wait and how I thirst for them to come to spend time with Me." Jesus wants us to talk to Him all through the day, to tell Him of our love for Him. Let us pray for the grace to know, love and serve God more.

9. Hail Mary
10. Hail Mary

 

 

January 23, 1996

Before the Tabernacle

Sorrowful Mysteries

Agony in the Garden

R. Be with Jesus as He knelt in the garden and feel the anguish within His Heart. We know how it is to love someone very deeply and those are the ones that hurt us the most. Sometimes by a word, sometimes by an action, but it is when we love someone very deeply that we are wounded the most by their lack of love, by their lack of care for us. We do not even understand the depth of the love of Jesus, how Jesus suffered in the garden for He loves each one of us so deeply and so individually.

    Look at the world today. How Jesus is treated with such disrespect, dishonor and forgotten many times. Jesus cries out from the tabernacle: "Tell them, tell them, tell them that I am the Almighty God and that I am truly present in the tabernacle, no less than the day that I knelt in the garden. Do they not hear? Will you carry this message to the world? I am Jesus and I am speaking to you. I cry out to you, My beloved ones, to spread the messages of My burning love to this world, to tell the world how I long and wait for them to be so close to Me."

1. Jesus: Come deep within the interior of yourselves and dwell within My Heart, within the heart of My Mother. Feel the security of the red room as you dwell within My beating Heart, as you feel the warmth and love that only God can outpour to you. This will be your refuge for the dark days that are ahead, for I am the Almighty God and the Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within you. In all of the turmoil and all of the suffering you will find refuge when you come and dwell within My Heart.

2. Song: A Song from Jesus

3. R. Jesus is God. Jesus is one with the Father. To dwell within Jesus' Heart is to be united to the Father, for to know Jesus is to know the Father and the Holy Spirit and to be one in Them, to know each Person of the Trinity, to know the presence of the Almighty God, to know oneness. When I go before the tabernacle and think of Jesus truly present in the Eucharist and focus on the Father and Holy Spirit, I am so full of love. I want to know the love of the Trinity. Go within the interior dwelling of Jesus' Heart and focus on His presence. Feel the heat, feel the red room, the cavern of His endless love, and in uniting to His love know the presence of the Father who is one with Jesus.

4. R. We go to the heart of our beloved Mother - it is her heart that is so pure, so holy, so united to the Heart of Jesus, for Mary dwells most perfectly in the Heart of Jesus. As we dwell in Mary's heart, we know the action of the Holy Spirit working in us to sanctify us and make us holy. We need God the Holy Spirit to help us be holy, we need God's grace. It is the action of God within us, His grace working within us, that sanctifies us and as we dwell in the heart of our Mother, we dwell deeply in the Heart of Jesus, the red cavern, the endless abyss of burning love which unites us with the Father. God wants our love. God wants His holy priests to be holy, to dwell in the Heart of Jesus, for all of us to dwell in the Heart of Jesus and to be one with each other as we partake in His holy love.

5. R. So minutely we understand the love of God. God is love. We cannot comprehend. We grow deeper and deeper in the mystery of God's love as He reveals more about His love to us. But, our understanding of His love is shallow. We penetrate His Heart deeper and deeper as we beg Him for His grace. Jesus makes known the mystery of His love to us. Let us comfort His Heart as He knelt in the garden and suffered such agony that His sweat became as drops of blood on the ground, the mental persecution, the knowing, the loving. Think of how it is when we are offended by those we love so deeply and how we go over it and over it in our mind, that our heart aches. Think of Jesus in the garden, such agony that His sweat became as drops of blood on the ground.

6. R. Jesus calls out to us for this love. Jesus calls out to us to consecrate our hearts to Jesus and Mary. Consecration is giving ourselves to Them. Love is giving of self. Jesus gives Himself to us. Jesus gave His all on the cross and He gives Himself in the Holy Eucharist. We are not a sponge that absorbs His love. This is a love relationship between Jesus and us. Jesus wants us to give ourselves more and more to Him. Jesus gives of Himself. We unite in a deep intimate union with Jesus. If we want love, the love that our soul craves, only the love of Jesus will satisfy this craving. But, it takes giving of self. The more we give of ourselves, the more we partake in this relationship with God in the intimacy of His burning love.

7. R. In the garden, how offended Jesus was by His priests and religious who do not love Him as they should. We are the Shepherds of Christ. We are being called by Jesus to pray for our beloved priests and religious, for it is hard in this world that has turned cold and godless. We need to pray with all our hearts for He has chosen them as His Shepherds, to spread His love to the flock.

8. R. Jesus has called us as His apostles, servants, handmaids, associates in the Shepherds of Christ, to spread His love into the world and Jesus is giving to us great graces to grow deeper in this union. As we become one in Him as we die to ourselves and unite to Him, we will unite deeper and deeper to Jesus. We are to die to all those things that are not like Jesus and grow deeper and deeper in our union with Him. Jesus can then operate to this world that is suffering and in pain through us, if we give ourselves to Him. Let us unite with Jesus in the garden. Let us give our hearts to Him. Give Him our all, surrender our wills and join in this deep intimate love relationship with the Divine God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. No love affair on this earth can compare to an intimate love union with the Divine Almighty God who gives Himself to us and asks for us to give ourselves to Him.

9. Song: I Love You Jesus

R. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who knelt in the garden, is as present in this room in the Eucharist, as He was in the garden. If we were in the garden with Jesus would our hearts burn for love of Him? Let our hearts burn as we are here in this room with the same Jesus Christ who sweat blood in the Garden of Gethsemane.

10. Hail Mary

 

The Scourging at the Pillar

R. The place Jesus took me was the deepest recesses of His Heart. I was enveloped in His burning love. It was a red room with heat and an intense glow. I was swept away in His embrace and only existed in Him. The power of the Almighty God enveloped me and I only existed in Him. There was no fear for I existed in this Almighty Being. My heart was wrapped in the internal embrace of this Supreme Being. The security, the power I know was His deep presence in which I existed. I knew the room was red and warm. I knew His immenseness. I existed in Him. I did not feel little as a speck, but elevated and empowered for I existed in Him.

1. R. I was overtaken by the love of God. The fire of the Holy Spirit filled me. I was absorbed by the love of the Father and I existed in Him. In the deepest recesses of the Heart of Jesus so awesome His burning love, the inner chambers of His magnificent Heart, the Heart of the Almighty God. The Heart of Jesus is where He took me with all it's power, God is omnipotent. We know the fire of God's love. Jesus took me to the deepest chamber of His fiery Heart and in that moment I touched eternity for I knew what it was to be enveloped in the deep furnace of His love. I now want to exist in this chamber of His Heart, swept away in His burning love, absorbed in my every cell with His love.

2. R. Stand with Jesus at the Pillar. Be there and look at the rope around His hands and see the torn flesh and watch the look on the men's faces as they beat His back and His blood flies into the air.

3. R. God so loved this world that He sent His only begotten Son. After the sin of Adam, look at how man is treating God today. God the Father gave His Son and Jesus died on the cross for us. Jesus gives Himself - the Almighty God, born in the womb of a human person for love of us and He is forgotten and ignored. Jesus' name is used in vain by those He loved so dearly. Think of how it is to be hurt by those you love so much. Think of how Jesus feels when His name is used in vain by those He loves.

4. R. To see with eyes unveiled for we see this godless world and we see all that is in it. We must see the world with the eyes of Jesus. Do we hear Jesus' cries from the tabernacle? Jesus is truly present in His Divinity and humanity and in one second He can take our breath away and Mary says she is holding back the hand of her Son. We are called as Shepherds of Christ to go into this world and to spread the messages of His burning love. See Jesus at the pillar and see the wounds. I see the wound in His left arm so many times - so deep, that I cannot even describe this wound in His arm. This is one wound. Jesus' body was covered from head to toe with the wounds of His love - deep wounds. So too is His love for us, so deep - and He cries out and cries out and His cries fall on deaf ears for they did not listen to Jesus either. They put Jesus to death. How is the world today? Is the world listening to the messages of His love or have they turned a deaf ear? Are their eyes blind and their hearts cold when Jesus comes with a burning Heart filled with burning love to fill the stared soul?

5. Hail Mary

6. R. Jesus calls us to the deepest union with Him. This is what He wants with us this day. Jesus gives us: The 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 posses ... come and dwell in me now.

7. Jesus: I call you to surrender. I call you to love. I call you to open wide your heart and to let Me penetrate your very soul, for you are Mine and I love you with the deepest, burning love. It is in giving yourself that We will unite ever deeper in Our love.

8. R. The precious hands of God was covered with His own blood - the blood that He shed, that we could be saved if we love and serve God according to His will.

9. R. As Jesus walked from the pillar, the earth was marked by the bloody footprints. Jesus is the Savior of the World.

10. Song: A Song from Jesus

 

The Crowning with Thorns

R. How great was the act of love that God gave to this world when He gave Himself and died on the cross. Jesus gives Himself to us this day in the Holy Eucharist. The greatest commandment is that we must love God with our whole heart, our whole soul and our whole being. This is a commandment. If we are to enter heaven, we must follow the commandments. They are commands given by God for us to follow. The greatest act we can do on this earth is an act of loving God. The reason for our existence is to love God. In the Sacrament of His greatest love. Jesus gives Himself to us. This is an act of love on His part. We are called to respond by giving ourselves in love to Him.

1. R. Be there as Jesus sits on the throne and they pound into His head a sharp crown of piercing thorns. How many pricks in His precious head!

2. R. See His hair matted with blood. This is the blood that He shed, that we would be with Him forever and ever in heaven and that we share in His Divine life this day. It is through His sufferings and death that we share in this life. Jesus wants us to share deeper and deeper in His life and in His love. This is the price that He paid.

3. Song: I Love You Jesus

Jesus: I love you. I love you. I love you. I have chosen you. I am giving you great graces to unite deeper and deeper in My love. Open wide your heart and let Me penetrate your soul with My Divine love.

4. R. Jesus' cries fall on deaf ears this day. The hearts of so many are filled with the world.

5. R. Are we not unfaithful to Him? Are we giving our hearts in love to Him?

6. R. This is the purpose of the Holy Eucharist: to unite in such oneness with our holy, loving God. Our all - consuming passion should be that of loving God. How many go to the Eucharist with the sole purpose of giving great love to God. He wants us to love Him. He wants souls to tell Him how much they truly love Him. This is the most intimate act of love, when God gives Himself: Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, to man. If it is such an act of love, how are we receiving Him in communion? We should beg God in the most intimate union with Him to help us to love Him with the greatest love.

7. R. Jesus is a Person. Jesus wants our love. The Holy Spirit wants such intimacy with us. The Father wants us to love Him. In the Eucharist we unite with God. In this intimate act of uniting with our beloved God, we must pour out our love to God, we must pour out our hearts to the most adorable Heart of Jesus. Jesus is so unjustly treated by many of His beloved souls that He loves so much. Let us help make reparation to the Almighty God by loving God with our whole heart, our whole soul and our whole being in the Sacrament of His greatest love - this is the gift of Himself.

8. R. Think of how it is when you love someone so much and you are offended by that person. Other things do not seem to matter. Think of how it is for Jesus. Jesus says, over and over again, His greatest agonies were not the wounds to His body, but those that He experienced to His Heart. He was buckled over in such suffering for the pains in His Heart, knowing in His Divine mind all those that He loved so dearly, so personally, that would reject and hate Him, from all time, He carried the sins of the world on His back. Jesus carried all the rejection of all people in His Heart and in this bitter anguish, He was comforted by the love of His precious souls that were faithful to Him, that gave Him great love. One soul giving Him great love is so pleasing to Him. Jesus says there are millions of hot-cold souls that are indifferent to Him. Jesus longs for that one soul to come and outpour its love to Him. Will you be that soul? That soul that comforted Jesus during His bitter passion? The soul that He longs and waits especially for?

Jesus: I am giving to you great graces in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to unite in deepest union with My burning Heart. Pray all through the day for these graces that you may know My love more and more, that you will feel satisfaction in your heart of knowing the love of God, for nothing fills the starved soul but the love of God.

9. R. And they spit on Jesus and they hollered at Him and He did not answer back. He sat silent and He suffered the ridicule, for He suffered for the love of His precious souls. It is in His suffering that we become sharers in His life. This is the price He paid. How do we realize this life? How do we value His love?

10. Hail Mary

 

Jesus Carries His Cross

R. See Jesus, His head crowned with thorns, covered with His own blood, His body wounded and in His heart He makes this promise to us: I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life. I will establish peace in their homes. I will bless every house in which a picture of My Heart shall be exposed and honored. I will console them in all their difficulties. I will be their refuge during life and especially at the hour of death. I will shed abundant blessings upon all their undertakings. Sinners shall find in My Heart a fountain and boundless ocean of mercy. Tepid souls shall become fervent. Fervent souls shall quickly mount to great perfection. I will give to priests the power of touching the most hardened hearts. Those who propagate this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be blotted out. I promise thee in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful love will grant to those who communicate on the first Friday of the month of nine consecutive months, the grace of final penitence. They shall not die in My displeasure nor without their sacraments. My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in their last moments.

1. R. Mary promises in the rosary that when we pray this rosary she will give us what we need. Mary is the Mediatrix of all grace. Mary promised that there will be peace in this world when we consecrate our hearts to her Heart and the Heart of her Son. Jesus promises peace in our hearts and peace in our homes when we have devotion to His Heart. Why do we not hear the words of Jesus and the promises of Jesus and Mary? Let us pray fervently for our priests that they will consecrate their hearts to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, that they will give themselves to these most adorable Hearts, to the Heart that carried such anguish all through the Passion, that had such agony far greater than any of the wounds to His precious body. Let us pray for the priests and the religious to consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

2. R. The peace or war of this world depends on this and our making reparation to their hearts in praying the rosary.

3. R. Look into the eyes of Jesus as Mary looked into Jesus' eyes on the way to Calvary. Do you see the beautiful eyes of Jesus filled with such love? Do you see the blood as it trickles down His face, His thoughts, always on us and love of us? Yet, we give Him such shallow love, love from our mouths. We hold back so much and Jesus loved us so much that He gave His all. Why do we not trust Jesus and consecrate our hearts, giving ourselves to Jesus and to the Heart of His Mother?

4. R. It is in the Heart of Mary, through the Holy Spirit, that we will be made holy, that we will be molded more and more into the image and likeness of Jesus, we need to be sanctified. We need to pray that the Holy Spirit works within the heart of Mary to sanctify us. Do we see His face covered with blood? This is the love that Jesus has for us.

5. R. The heavy cross dug into His precious wounded skin and His legs were so weak that He could not go on any further and Jesus fell to the ground with the cross on His back. This is the love that Jesus has for us.

6. R. It is in our deepest sufferings when we are carrying the cross that is the heaviest that we must turn to Jesus. We hold tight to Him and walk with Him and share in His life. He carried the cross, so too we share deeply in His life - the life of the Resurrection.

7. Jesus: Does your life seem bitter? Does the road seem hard? I am with you, My beloved ones, in the cross that you carry, you are living My life in your life and so, too, you will share in My life of resurrection if you remain fixed in Me. Carry your cross and know that it is given in great love from Me, your beloved Savior. One day you will know the glory of all of your sufferings, for you will unite with Me forever and ever in deepest union in My courts of heaven, if you live as God wants you to live.

8. R. I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever and ever . . .

9. Jesus: Carry your cross as I carried Mine and know that My Mother walks with you on your way, loving you. Mary is the most personal Mother, she cares for you more than any earthly Mother. My beloved ones, My Mother is forever by your side with such love.

10. Hail Mary

 

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

R. They raised Jesus high on the cross and He hung for three agonizing hours to His death.

1. R. Jesus gave Himself to us. I hear Him call out: I give you Myself, I give you Myself, what more do they want? Tell them, tell them - I give Myself to them this day and they run from My altar, tell them!

2. R. Jesus was the Lamb led to the slaughter. Jesus gave His all, the most pleasing act of love to the Father, the gift of His Son.

3. R. Let us live according to the Father's will in love and unite all we do to the Holy Sacrament of the Mass going on around the world, in the Holy Spirit with all the angels and saints and the souls in purgatory, through the powerful intercession of Mary in the Holy Spirit. We pray for the priests, the Church and the world. We want to put on Christ in this world.

4. R. Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the Sacrament of His greatest love. This is a prayer before Mass. I want to be one in Him in this act of love...unite in your gift of yourself to me, Come and possess my soul.

A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

                                               -Mass Book, December 27, 1995

5. R. As we unite with Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and we die to all those things that are not like Him and we unite to Him and we become more like Him. We go to the Eucharist and eat His Body and drink His Blood.

6. R. Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me, the Holy Spirit acts in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus. Father, I offer this, my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit, to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

7. R. How great the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass when the Father looks down and He sees His Son one with the priest in the deepest way in this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We unite with Jesus in this offering to the Father and He sees us with such love. This is a great act of love.

8. R.  Let us realize the great gift of the Mass from the beginning of the Mass when we are sorry for our sins, to the Word when we are fed richly. We offer ourselves and hope that this sacrifice is pleasing to the Father and die to ourselves. We offer ourselves to the Father in the Holy Spirit. We are one with God. Let us give God the greatest love, the love that is His due. God is worthy of all our love. Let us unite with Him at this time and tell Him how we love Him and want to help make reparation for all the injustices and negligence against Him and against the heart of Mary. Who are we that God gives us the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Jesus gives us Himself.

9. R. Look at how the Mass is - do we appreciate the great gift that we are given? I ask you to pray fervently with me to help me to circulate these messages on the Mass, that many more will devoutly offer themselves in this sacrifice to the Father, united to Jesus, all through the day and at Mass and unite in deeper, deeper union with Him in the Holy Eucharist.

10. R. I ask you to pray with me. Mary is appearing before me. Mary is asking me to spread these rosaries, to pray with me to help me to circulate these rosaries and for you to help me. We must pray the rosary, to have peace in the world, Mary said at Fatima. Please pray with me to help me to circulate the messages of His love on the Mass, the Eucharist and the Rosary.

    Let us pray fervently to spread these messages, especially to the priests, to the religious, and to the children.

Guiding Light - Reflect on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light homily series - Reflect on the Word - Cycle B —  The Word leaves an impression on our souls. In my thoughts and reflections are born a more tangible understanding of these eternal concepts presented in the Gospels and the readings. Anyone can read a sentence, but not anyone can absorb it's true meaning. Truth, in this day and age, is almost a matter of opinion or individual entitlement. We believe that Christ's truth is our Roman Catholic Church. We, as priests, champion it's teachings; we are ambassadors for the Pope and Christ to those faces looking at us. We are the light by which our congregation reads to reflect upon real truth and we do it hand in hand. $15

Guiding Light - Steadfast to the Son
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle A of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light homily series - Steadfast to the Son - Cycle A — The sunflower is a great example of how we should be steadfastly guided by light. What a powerful thought that this exceptional plant is not stuck in one pose day in and day out, yet adaptable and magnetized to the sun. We feel the same about our Son. Our heads turns to face Christ as each day presents its challenges to find light. We join together like plants in a field and soak up the Son through the pulpit. We are a warm circle of strength using the wind of our breath to carry our priests' words, Christ's words, to new rich soil. $15

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Liturgical Year
$ 10.00 plus postage

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul - Cycle C — In a world rapidly advancing and encouraging personal gain, we are faced with modern problems. There is a challenge to find time in our busy schedules for Sunday Mass or a family meal. We are able to research, shop, bank and even work without hearing one human voice. It is no wonder that we may often feel disconnected and famished at our week's end. In Fr. Joe's third book of homilies from Cycle C, we are reminded of the charity that Christ intended us to show each other. We have a calling to turn the other cheek and be the Good Samaritan to others. We are rewarded with the Father's kingdom and love when we are not worthy. We are not left alone or hungry. $15

Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word - Cycle B — At times we may feel that our path to Christ is a bit "out of focus". Like the disciples in the Book of Mark, this ordinary life clouds our vision of Christ's Divinity. We may doubt the practicality or possibility of applying His teachings and example to our modern life. Cycle B's homilies are a "guiding light" to help us realize Jesus' Messianic greatness and His promise of better things to come. $15

Guiding Light - The Word Alive in Our Hearts

$ 10.00  plus postage

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
