1 John 4:17-21

Love comes to its perfection in us when we can face the Day of Judgement fearlessly, because even in this world we have become as he is. In love there is no room for fear, but perfect love drives out fear, because fear implies punishment and no one who is afraid has come to perfection in love. Let us love, then, because he first loved us. Anyone who says 'I love God' and hates his brother, is a liar, since whoever does not love the brother whom he can see cannot love God whom he has not seen. Indeed this is the commandment we have received from him, that whoever loves God, must also love his brother.




                Mary: I want a ceremony on May 13th
                    that you will honor my day
                    with a crown
                    Your heavenly Father will bless
                        you for recognizing
                        my Queenship as your heavenly

                God the Father: Mary is a gift to the human race
                    I send her as a messenger —

                R. Faith is a gift —
                We didn't earn it —
                We didn't do it on our own efforts —

                Scripture says
                    "They will be taught by God"

                God wants us to know Him —
                Faith is a gift from God —
                Jesus came to reveal the Father
                    to us —

                Jesus came to tell us about
                    the Father —

                We come to Mass to deepen our
                    relationship with the Father —


John 6: 44-51

‘No one can come to me
unless drawn by the Father who sent me,
and I will raise that person up
    on the last day.
It is written in the prophets:
They will all be taught by God;
everyone who has listened to the Father,
and learnt from him,
comes to me.
Not that anybody has seen the Father,
except him who has his being from God:
he has seen the Father.
In all truth I tell you,
everyone who believes has eternal life.
 I am the bread of life.
 Your fathers ate manna in the desert
 and they are dead;
 but this is the bread
    which comes down from heaven,
 so that a person may eat it and not die.
 I am the living bread
    which has come down from heaven.
 Anyone who eats this bread 
    will live for ever;
 and the bread that I shall give
 is my flesh, for the life of the world.’


                R. Through faith — we know God —

                Jesus is the source of
                    that knowledge —
                    of peace and joy —

                We are nourished through
                    our faith in God —
                    but also the Eucharist —

                Jesus says: I am the bread of life

                Jesus says:
                    "This is My Body"

                    "The Bread I give is My flesh"

                    "Unless we receive it we will
                        not have eternal life within us" —

                R. We thank God for the food to give
                    us eternal life —

                We seek eternal life —

                We pray for people who have
                    not accepted Jesus Christ —

                We pray for those who suffer
                    injustice, that they will
                    still do good —   

                We pray for priests —

                God hear our prayers we offer in faith —

                We pray Oh God in faith —
                Hear us, Oh God —
                We love You, Oh God
                Help us, Oh God —

                Blessed are you Lord—
                We love You —
                We praise You —
                We worship You —

                Oh God please accept our
                    sacrifice —

                Oh God You share Your
                    Divine Life —

                Oh God we love You
                Let us give thanks
                We thank You God —

                Help this world —
                Oh God, our world is broken —

                Oh God, help us to come to
                    know You —

                Oh God, Oh God, Oh God —
                Oh God You are the fountain
                    of all holiness —

                Oh God — I love You —
                Oh God

                We hear at Mass —
                "This is My Body"
                "This is My Blood"

                The Blood of the
                    new and everlasting covenant —

                Oh Jesus —
                    You died for us —

                Oh Jesus
                    You rose for us

                Oh Jesus — We love You

                Oh God —
                    Help us

                Oh God
                    We love You —

                Oh God
                    Help us know Your presence —

                Oh God
                    We pray through the
                        intercession of Mary

                Through Him — With Him
                    In Him —




                Mary speaks — put this picture on the
                    with "I stood beneath the cross"
                                                - Mary -




                R. Satan said
                    "I will not serve"

                Satan tempts —

                Satan wants
                    souls for hell


                Jesus wants us forever with
                    Him in heaven

                Jesus is the Son of God

                Jesus obeyed —

                Jesus did the will of the Father
                    to His death on the cross




                A thief comes in the night with malice in his
                heart — he can come noisy — banging to get in or
                he can come sneaking to not be observed with
                his evil heart - to steal — to work undercover —
                to do harm —

                    Jesus is the way, the truth and the life —
                Jesus shows us His battered naked body — Jesus
                the Son of God comes a little baby — a bare
                body into the world — The treasure is the
                heart of this little body — the Heart so
                pure —

                Adam and Eve knew what God told them and
                they could have obeyed — The devil lied to Eve —
                the devil tempted her — in the heat of the
                day — the devil comes with emotions —
                anger — malice of heart — jealousies —
                a running mind — The devil said to Eve that
                she could be smart — equal to God — the devil
                appealed to her pride — she could raise up —
                The devil wants the individual to believe his
                lies as the truth — turning right into wrong —
                deception and he tries to tempt by showing
                evil as good — the devil appeals to the
                individual with his sneaky scheme — the devil
                doesn't sleep — he comes in opportune times —
                the devil opens the mind and fills it with
                lies and deceptions to lure the soul into his
                evil scheme to seduce the heart — the more
                he works on an individual the easier it is
                to use them to do his vicious work of
                tearing apart loving relationships, building unity —
                adoring God — performing work for God to
                help promote truth and the Kingdom of God —

                    The devil's work is masked — he can work in
                secret — where one wears a face of innocence
                the devil works in the deceptive heart —

                    Jesus is the way, the truth and the life —
                The commandments are clear — the devil tries
                to tell the person — "oh we have a situation
                here that makes the rules able to be
                changed" Whatever the devil's first encounter
                to lure the soul away from truth and
                right — soon if the person does not take
                responsibility for their sins — the devil can
                work with an individual where their lies
                are habits, they can, for example, steal
                and do it sneaky, but tell themselves
                it's fine to steal — even though if they
                recognized their own cover up — they could
                see the extent they go to, to hide their
                sins and lie to hide them — If anything
                is found out they become very
                indignant if they continue to desire
                the cover-up and can go to all extremes
                of showing their evil actions didn't
                happen at all — hiding and manipulating to
                cover-up the crime — remain innocent
                and make the other trying to stop the injustice
                look like they are the guilty party —

                Jesus is truth —

                If one goes in the direction to embrace happiness —
                one must walk in the truth — be authentic —
                not lie — when God gave us the commandments
                to not bear false witness, not to steal, the
                scripture says there will be no more lies in revelation,
                God tells us not to kill —
                In the commandments we are being told
                how to treat others
                and thus have happy
                lives obeying God's rules —

                We see clearly in the garden of Eden — Eve
                disobeyed God — she knew what He said —
                She disobeyed Him and we see as her
                children we still suffer from original sin —

                Sin offends God —
                Sin drives us from God —

                God is merciful
                God is loving

                But man with a contrite heart, is
                to tell God he is sorry for his sin —
                recognize his sin with a firm
                purpose of amendment — not to sin
                again and with his love for God and others
                attempt to not give into the temptations of
                sinning —

                Sin hurts our relationship with God —
                Sin hurts our relationship with others —
                God is wanting us to grow in oneness —

                Living lies —
                Living in sin — drives us from God —

                God is truth —

                Satan is the father of lies —

                Satan wants the person with their free will
                    to disregard authority and to seek to
                    be over just authority —

                i.e. Children to argue with parents and to disobey —
                    rebelling against the 4th commandment
                    when the parent is acting with the
                    authority God gave them —

                Satan wants confrontation with authority,
                    just authority —
                    Satan tempts the person by telling them —
                        you should do what you want —
                        nobody can tell you what to do —
                        do it anyway —
                        just do it —
                        test them — see if you get away
                        with it —
                        disobey the rules —

                    satan wants to wipe out rules —
                    satan wants to dismiss structure —
                    satan wants - willfulness — people
                        rising over just rules needed
                        for living according to God's will —

                In businesses there are rules — if a person
                    wants a job they must obey the rules —
                    there are performance reviews —

                The person who has lived trying to force
                    their way in life
                    "Nobody will tell me what to do"
                    has to manipulate and force this rule
                    through some means on others —
                    Rules for them — start and end with them
                        and relationships of serving and
                        loving as God commanded are
                        challenged more and more every day —

                We used to go to Coney Island and there were
                    Dodgem Cars — a person could bump you
                    in their car — anyway they wanted —

                    God gave us rules

                    If we love God, really love God, we live to
                love our neighbor —

                    The commandments tell us how to love God
                and love our neighbor —

                    These commandments are to build
                relationships with God and others — we
                have to obey God's rules if we are to be
                happy — If we offend God and others if we
                get some momentary pleasure we are not
                really happy —

                    Satan works a little at a time — so it will
                be less noticed —

                    Like a frog — if you put him in a pot
                of boiling water — he jumps out,

                    But if the frog is put in warm water
                and it is gradually heated to boiling —
                he will stay in and eventually die —

                    God gives us so many gifts —
                    God is love —
                    God is the Creator —
                    God wants us to live — loving and respecting
                one another and growing in our relationships —

                We all sin, but we are to examine our
                    conscience, be accountable for
                    our sins, responsible for our sins
                    and make amends to God and
                    others —

                God called these 8 days of reparation
                    praying to help repair the damage
                    in man's relationship with God,
                    by sacrifice, singing and praising
                    God —

                Did you ever see these two words in the English


                It's a free choice

                Will I serve God and love God being
                    more and more in His image and
                    likeness or

                Will I sin — offending God by giving
                    into sin — the deadly sins —
                    sinning against God and my brother
                    and listening to satan who lies
                    telling the sinner what is right is
                    wrong and what is wrong is right —

                The Fall of Man

Genesis Chapter 3

Now, the snake was the most subtle of all the wild animals that Yahweh God had made. It asked the woman, 'Did God really say you were not to eat from any of the trees in the garden?' The woman answered the snake, 'We may eat the fruit of the trees in the garden. But of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden God said, "You must not eat it, nor touch it, under pain of death." ' Then the snake said to the woman, 'No! You will not die! God knows in fact that the day you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods, knowing good from evil.' The woman saw that the tree was good to eat and pleasing to the eye, and that it was enticing for the wisdom that it could give. So she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened and they realised that they were naked. So they sewed fig-leaves together to make themselves loin-cloths.

The man and his wife heard the sound of Yahweh God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from Yahweh God among the trees of the garden. But Yahweh God called to the man. 'Where are you?' he asked. 'I heard the sound of you in the garden,' he replied. 'I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.' 'Who told you that you were naked?' he asked. 'Have you been eating from the tree I forbade you to eat?' The man replied, 'It was the woman you put with me; she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.' Then Yahweh God said to the woman, 'Why did you do that?' The woman replied, 'The snake tempted me and I ate.'

Then Yahweh God said to the snake, 'Because you have done this,

    Accursed be you
    of all animals wild and tame!
    On your belly you will go
    and on dust you will feed
    as long as you live.
    I shall put enmity
    between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and hers;
    it will bruise your head
    and you will strike its heel.'

    To the woman he said:

    I shall give you intense pain
        in childbearing,
    you will give birth to your children
        in pain.
    Your yearning will be for your husband,
    and he will dominate you.

To the man he said, 'Because you listened to the voice of your wife and ate from the tree of which I had forbidden you to eat,

    Accursed be the soil because of you!
    Painfully will you get your food from it
    as long as you live.
    It will yield you brambles and thistles,
    as you eat the produce of the land.
    By the sweat of your face

    will you earn you food,
    until you return to the ground,
    as you were taken from it.
    For dust you are
    and to dust you shall return.

The man named his wife 'Eve' because she was the mother of all those who live. Yahweh God made tunics of skins for the man and his wife and clothed them. Then Yahweh God said, 'Now that the man has become like one of us in knowing good from evil, he must not be allowed to reach out his hand and pick from the tree of life too, and eat and live for ever!' So Yahweh God expelled him from the garden of Eden, to till the soil from which he had been taken. He banished the man, and in front of the garden of Eden he posted the great winged creatures and the fiery flashing sword, to guard the way to the tree of life.


                R. Sins can become a habitual — vices —

                Humility is a virtue and brings
                    the soul closer to God —
                    building loving relationships
                    with God and others —

                Humility is truth —

                A person really like Mary who was humble,
                    sinless — pure — the perfect handmaid
                    of the Lord —
                    did not tell little "white lies"

                Deception is lying —

                A person called to represent the work
                    for a company and report upward
                    to the boss — if they deceive the
                    boss — are in a rebelling state
                    with the boss — they usually are fired —

                Our life is being responsible to the boss —
                    who is God —

                He created us —
                He made the rules —
                He gave us our talents to do the
                    work —

                Satan said
                    "I will not serve God"

                Satan wants souls for hell —

                Rebelling against the boss usually means
                    you loose your job 


                R. Heaven is a REWARD
                    promised to those who love and serve the Lord —

                The person trying to live by God's rules —
                    is establishing lasting relationships
                    of love in their heart —
                    love of God
                    love of others

                Respecting our creaturehood —


1 Corinthians 15:20-28

In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first-fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first-fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. But when it is said everything is subjected, this obviously cannot include the One who subjected everything to him. When everything has been subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the One who has subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.


                R. Satan wanted Jesus to bow to him —
                Satan is the grand deceiver —

                Satan presses on people to mask
                    their activities —
                    if you are hiding something you
                        are doing at work from the boss —
                        it's a good sign you probably
                        shouldn't be doing it —

                There is energy when one provokes and
                    knows something is wrong and
                    does it any way —

                There is energy when there is anger,
                    passion, jealousy, stealing,
                    working under cover —

                A person working sneaky under the
                    boss is trying to raise themselves
                    above in power — working
                    behind their back —

                Jesus: I am the boss —
                    You cannot hide anything from Me —
                    You are to obey the commandments —
                        obey authority —

                To live more the Christ-life — means
                    to grow more in the life of grace —
                    It is to be filled with My life —
                    I am, the way, the truth and the life —

                I am God —
                I see everything —

                When you sin — you choose to sin —
                    you have a free will —
                    to obey —
                    to rebel against the Father's will —

                You can choose to obey
                You can choose to not obey —

                If you love Me you keep My
                    commands —

                I died for your sins —
                I know them —

                Sin drives you from Me
                Sin makes you miserable —

                Angry for you are depriving yourself
                    of deeper union with Me —

                Then satan can move in with his lies —

                Passions are energies — you know
                when satan is luring you to sin with
                passion and evil in your heart —

                I read the hearts —
                I know your every thought —
                Your 'fiendish' desires
                Your passions and lust —
                Your anger and jealousies —
                Evils in the heart —
                Sneaky things are not hidden from
                    My eyes —

                You hearts can become more and more
                    debase —
                    like stone —

                Your hearts were made for loving —
                Your hearts were made to be soft and supple —
                Your hearts were made to be in relationships
                    with God and others —

                A person moving ahead and sinning
                    is moving ahead and sinning
                    with malice of intent —

                Listening to satan's lies can be deadly —
                    don't give into sin

                You have a free will

This book Light, Happiness and Peace is a journey into the spiritual life — an awakening of deeper life IN HIM. Here are some of the comments we received from bishops and cardinals about the book. Cardinal – Pontifical Council for Culture – Vatican City “I am sure that this book, Light, Happiness and Peace through a discussion on traditional Catholic Spirituality will contribute in bringing back prayer into the mainstream of life.” $10

In Imitation of Two Hearts - Prayers for Consolation, Renewal and Peace in Times of Suffering Fr. John J. Pasquini leads a suffering soul to the gentle Hearts of Jesus and Mary. In these most loving Hearts - the prayers by Fr. John Pasquini - help the person suffering to know more deeply the pascal mystery of death/resurrection. President of the Pontifical Council for Health $10

Authenticity, the Yellow Book of prayers by Fr. John Pasquini, can lead the soul into deeper intimacy with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, can lead to greater love of Mary which leads to the unitive life and greater holiness. The book of prayers Authenticity by Fr. John J. Pasquini is to help one grow ever deeper in the Unitive life. Apostolic Nuncio – Archbishop – Philippines “With Authenticity, much is gained in prayer, and much is accomplished through prayer. More especially if prayer is directed in behalf of the Church.” $10

“In Medicine of Immortality, Father John Pasquini offers his readers the richness of Catholic devotional prayer, the wisdom of the Fathers and, most of all, the fruits of his own prayer and meditation before the Blessed Sacrament. I recommend this book to all who wish to grow in their love for the Lord, who sustains the life of His Church through the precious gift of His Body and Blood.” Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I., Archbishop of Chicago $10

Ecce Fides is a work dedicated to defending Catholic beliefs through reason, Scripture, and the life of the Holy Spirit. "It is important that we (as people of God) return to the source of life, our faith, which is usefully exposed in this volume, and take it out to our contemporaries, evangelizing them and their cultures and inculturating the Gospel."

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

Guiding Light - The Word Alive in Our Hearts. - Cycle A (partial) — Homilies by the Reverend Joe Robinson given at St. Boniface Church in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is a tremendous honor Fr. Joe has allowed us to share these great gifts with you – for greater holiness and knowing more and more about God. $10

Priestly Newsletter - 2000 #1 - CD. - Christ is Our Strength - Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. It is so beautiful. "This brief passage contains one of the greatest lessons of the spiritual life. As we progress along our spiritual journey, we become increasingly aware of how weak we are in our-selves, but how strong we are in Christ. To experience our weakness involves suffering. The degree and kind of suffering can vary. The suffering can include the experience of the classical dark night of the spirit as described by St. John of the Cross. One of the main purposes of the dark night is to make a person keenly aware of his or her helplessness without God." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10
Priestly Newsletter - 2000 #2 - CD. - Suffering: A Source of Life - Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. Fr. Carter knew suffering that year. His voice is so powerful as he read each Newsletter from his heart and soul. "Every man has his own share in the redemption. Each one is also called to share in that suffering through which the redemption was accomplished. He is called to share in that suffering through which all human suffering has also been redeemed. In bringing about the redemption through suffering, Christ has also raised human suffering to the level of the redemption. Thus each man in his suffering can also become a sharer in the redemptive suffering of Christ..." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10
