R. God wants us to go to heaven to be in the
beatific vision to have relationship with
God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus: The wounded human nature involves
wounds, wounds in relationship — A
person gives into pride, jealousy, envy,
lustfulness, gluttony, slothfulness —
these are wounds against the
relationship of love of God, love
of others, love of oneself.

    In a dysfunctional home, it is
relationship that is effected — others
can be forced into codependent relationships
and it can be a "so-called hell on earth" where
one uses force to control, attack
passively, abuse and stifle growth
needed to be as I intended the person
to grow in preparation for heaven.
Stilted — little or no growth —
Stymied at the pass —

To engage in jealousies, envy,
    control is an act of one's will —
    as it is an act of the will to
    love —

Love is a theological virtue as
    is faith and hope —

A person who believes deeply in Me,
    Jesus Christ is showing great faith —

Heaven is to be in relationship, in
    perfection with God and all
    others, existing in love —

A person controlling another, manipulating
    another to force dysfunction on
    them is probably coming from
    a chain of people who forced
    dysfunction on them — So they
    act-out and can be numb
    in their heart to how time
    passes and they aren't really
    living — they survive with
    survival tactics as they were
    forced to do —

Everywhere they go —
    Different addresses
    Forced dysfunction —

Wounded relationships —

To be able to exist as they know
    they must force their ways
    on others by some means
    of control —
    They have power-over
    They can use money —

This must be broken, this control —
    for it is the power they
    use to implement their
    dysfunctional ways —

I have given you the Shepherds of Christ
    to teach the truth —
    To help you to live intimately
        here below with God in
        deep relationship as a
        preparation for heaven —

The devil wants to tear down healthy
    homes, rooted in love —
    The devil wants to work through
        a person to control so they
        can implement ways that
        tear apart love —
        relationship —
        goodness —

The devil is coming to bring hatred
    among men —
    disobedience to the commandment
        of love —

You have a lifetime to choose
    to love yourself, others
    and God —

The rule is love —

I have given you the Blue Books
    to focus on relationship
    and love —

At the time of Noah many
    were corrupt —
    It was not loving to let
    this continue —

I have given the Shepherds of Christ, the Blue
    Books so you grow in relationships —
    obedience to those over you
    who are just authority —

    The person with the plan for satan
comes, tries to control, tears apart
relationships, acts in anger and
jealousies, manipulation, selfishness
and control —

    A person acting against God's
will doesn't feel good —

    Sinning drives one apart from
        God —

    Happiness comes from union
        with God —

    Relationship —

I have given men and women marriage
    to love one another and to
    raise children in love —

People who were angry their whole
    life teach children to be
    angry, to manipulate,
    to control, to punish —

They were to teach relationship
    and love — instead they
    taught, sadness, fighting
    etc. —

Anger is like a spray can —

Children from angry homes come
    to life sprayed with
    anger and they have a
    free will to learn to love —

    Parents are wounded human
persons, they may have done lots
of good, but didn't do some
things right —

    A child can be forced to live by
what the parents do, so they
may learn survival tactics
in a dysfunctional home —
    fear —
    control —
    unfairness —
    selfishness —
    anger —
    rage —

Another to retaliate can in later
    years teenager, young adult,
    if still at home —
    learn to get back with
    passive-aggressive attacks —

My law is love —

I have given you rules to live by —
going into adult life controlling
    others to passively attack
    them because it is your
    familiar way is a trap
    for you spiritually —

Did you hear the "Merry-go-Round called Denial" —
Secrets — like the past wasn't as bad as it was
    when one is destructively tearing
    down places they go.

You make a poisonous mess every
    where you go —

When My law is to be loving and
    building relationships for
    the Kingdom of God —

You don't stand still in the
    spiritual life —

    You are either advancing in
        relationships or
    working against the very
        purpose for why
        God created you —

In heaven there is perfection
Perfect obedience to God's will
Perfect love

Read the scriptures —

From the belly of the earth comes
    dissension and greed,
    jealousies, envy,
    slothfulness and pride —

The Father's Will for Us  - Our Source of Peace

  • Pope John Paul II instructs us: "The Church, as a reconciled and reconciling community, cannot forget that at the source of her gift and mission of reconciliation is the initiative, full of compassionate love and mercy, of that God who is love (see 1 John 4:8) and who out of love created human beings (see Wisdom 11:23-26; Genesis 1:27: Psalms 8:4-8)…He created them so that they might live in friendship with Him and in communion with one another.

"God is faithful to His eternal plan even when man, under the impulse of the evil one (see Wisdom 2:24) and carried away by his own pride, abuses the freedom given to him in order to love and generously seek what is good, and (instead) refuses to obey his Lord and Father. God is faithful even when man, instead of responding with love to God’s love, opposes Him and treats Him like a rival, deluding himself and relying on his own power, with the resulting break of relationship with the One who created him. In spite of this transgression on man’s part, God remains faithful in love.

"It is certainly true that the story of the Garden of Eden makes us think about the tragic consequences of rejecting the Father, which becomes evident in man’s inner disorder and in the breakdown of harmony between man and woman, brother and brother (see Genesis 3:12 ff; 4:1-16). Also significant is the Gospel parable of the two brothers (the parable of the ‘prodigal son’; see Luke 15:11-32) who, in different ways, distance themselves from their father and cause a rift between them. Refusal of God’s fatherly love and of His loving gifts is always at the root of humanity’s divisions.

"But we know that God…like the father in the parable (of the prodigal son), does not close His heart to any of His children. He waits for them, looks for them, goes to meet them at the place where the refusal of communion imprisons them in isolation and division. He calls them to gather about His table in the joy of the feast of forgiveness and reconciliation.

"This initiative on God’s part is made concrete and manifest in the redemptive act of Christ, which radiates through the world by means of the ministry of the Church." 13

13. Pope John Paul II, as in Celebrate 2000!, Servant Publications, pp. 140-141.



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.

From the Blue Book 7

March 30, 1995 - Fr. Carter's Mass


R. I was so overwhelmed at my unworthiness
and what was going on at Mass. I cried because
I am so unworthy to receive God.


Mark 16: 8

And the women came out and ran away from the tomb because they were frightened out of their wits; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.


R. They said nothing to anyone, for they
were afraid. They fled, trembling and bewildered.
They knew Jesus. They were taught
by Him, but they were filled with fear.

    The enemies had placed
a heavy stone there to seal the tomb. They were
afraid and filled with hatred.


John 7: 19

Did not Moses give you the Law?
And yet not one of you keeps the Law!


R. His body springs forth glorious and
Jesus is joyous, triumphant, radiant.
His Body is glorified.


Luke 24: 26

  Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer before entering into his glory?’


R. He did not take the pathway of joy and pleasure, but
    of sorrow and pain.

The cross He bore and carried. He opened the gates of heaven.

Mortal sin is death, it is a Tomb in which the
    captive soul sleeps a fatal sleep.

The devil guards to keep it locked. He tries to keep
    the soul blinded.

Christ says arise from the dead.
    Christ will enlighten thee.

For us He died, for us He rose.

How does the soul, put aside their sinful


1 Corinthians 15: 39-44

    Not all flesh is the same flesh: there is human flesh; animals have another kind of flesh, birds another and fish yet another. Then there are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies; the heavenly have a splendour of their own, and the earthly a different splendour. The sun has its own splendour, the moon another splendour, and the stars yet another splendour; and the stars differ among themselves in splendour. It is the same too with the resurrection of the dead: what is sown is perishable, but what is raised is imperishable; what is sown is contemptible but what is raised is glorious; what is sown is weak, but what is raised is powerful; what is sown is a natural body, and what is raised is a spiritual body. 


R. Walk in the newness of life with the
    resurrected Lord.

Rise from the tomb of my failings.
Oh God create in me a new spirit
Penetrate me with Your light
To live for Thee.


Luke 24: 26

  Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer before entering into his glory?’


R. Were not our hearts burning within us,
    while He spoke to us on the way and
    opened the scripture to us.

"Peace be with you"
They thought they were seeing a ghost.


Luke 24: 39

    ...Touch me and see for yourselves; a ghost has no flesh and bones as you can see I have.’


R. He ate some fish.

He opened their minds to understand the
    scriptures. Our minds are closed, we
    need God's grace. 


He goes to prepare a place for us.

Love is in the mystery.

Not seeing - intensely joined in such interior union
with Jesus and Mary, crying over Pieta, felt
wrapped in Their embrace. Crying -
wanted to kiss so tenderly His wounds,
crying about His wounds.

My great rapture of intimacy is inside,
    it doesn't have to do with seeing
    and feeling, it brought me out of
    that deep rapture I had with

Hard to explain - such union inside
    before, my intimacy is interiorly,
    it was so intense because of the
    mystery, the depth of the inner awareness
    and oneness inside, not in what is visible,
    in what is invisible. Such intense
    connection and emotion, so closely joined —
    so one with God.

Realize more and more oneness of us all, oneness
    with angels and saints and souls in
    purgatory. I know this oneness in my
    realization of deep oneness I have with
    Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This intensifies
    the emotion and experience of intimacy
    with God.

Oneness between one another, such love —
    loved a chosen priest last night, where
    before I felt conflict because of his
    lack of support for me, saw
    how special he is to God. He is the
    special creation of God the Father.
    He has been given a great gift. He was
    chosen by Them to do His work.

Oh how I intently love You, my beloved Jesus,
     - my Spouse the bridegroom of my soul.

Wounds take me deeper and deeper
    into Him - deeper into His love.

I see myself penetrating the wounds, going
    deeper into His Heart - with Mary.

Wrapped so intensely in His love — almost
    like a power driving us together —
    oneness, such oneness
    seeing that was a gift.

Pull - power, intenseness —

    Wrap - wrapped in

Wrapped in - rapture is
    as a pull, so intense, such a presence,
    such a oneness, burning union.

I think of the power and pull of electricity —
But His power never runs out.

To be lost in Your loving embrace, my Lord.
The embrace of my Lord is rapture whether
sorrow or joy. I share with Him. It
is joy because I share it with Him.
Gripped into this union with
    Him — awareness of the other side.

Song: Your presence pervades my Soul


April 1, 1995

Such Oneness

R. To be united in prayer with Father, Son,
Holy Spirit, Mary, all angels and saints and
souls in purgatory. Such oneness. When I pray,
I unite myself with God.
Jesus and Mary and all angels and saints,
and souls in purgatory pray with me.
Such power.

Fr. Carter's Mass

R. Yesterday, I had such a realization
of the oneness of Jesus and the Father.
Such immense love for the Father. I can
see myself being led to the bosom of
the Father. I want to be as a little child and
He is my loving Father and loves me so
much and cares for me.

Cried at Mass, realizing the state the
world is in and how simple it
would be and how wonderful, if
all did the will of the Father.
I want to give myself totally to the
Father and unite so deeply with Jesus
in the Mass. Jesus, I am Yours.



April 2, 1995

I Stand by Your Heart

Jesus: I ponder the ways of your heart. I know far
better than you, your every intention. If
no one wants to read these messages, they
are missing My words of wisdom given as
a gift for all.

    You will talk, My beloved one, continue
to write and stay so connected to the sound
of My voice talking within you My precious

    I do not go from you, I am so attentive to
your needs. Second by second, minute by
minute, I ponder your heart. I know your
fear and I comfort you in darkness.

    I never, ever go from you. I am wed to
your soul. So attentive to the beating of
your heart within your breast.

    Stay totally focused on Me for satan
will taunt you and try to talk in your
head. Silence him little one.

    As they poke at your eyes to make you cry,
I stand by your heart with burning love. I
am God, nothing can knock you if you
realize My love for you.


April 2, 1995

My Mother Comes on the Fifths

Jesus: I will tend to the priest, I am attentive
to your needs. These are My letters.
My Mother is coming on Wednesday, April 5, 1995.
(the first public 5th.) Trust in Me and do not fear.

    I have sent to you apostles to go
out to the world to spread these
messages. 12 - you are giving
them My messages. If I thought
only of Myself, I would not have left
the Apostles behind. You are teaching
My messages to them.

    They will carry this message
to the world. Do not be short,
rely totally on Me. You are leaving
behind My teachers.

    Get all your affairs in order.
You are teaching My emotion.
Be prepared as if you may die
tomorrow. Always live each
day to the fullest. Live each
hour, every minute to do
exactly as I have planned.

    No time to think of petty things. Your
days are at hand. I will mold you and
shape you and you will mold and shape
others through Me. I am leading _____ as
an apostle to do this work. ____, ____,
____, all will listen and watch you and be
taught, ____ and ____, as you watch
Fr. Carter and they watch you. You are a pillar
of strength rooted in Me. All who watch
will learn from Me for I am molding and
teaching you My ways. Be an example
of My teaching. You cannot be bowed
down, ever, you cannot complain, as
you are, so do you teach. You must
teach My ways, you are resisting to be
more and more one in Me. Read this letter
over and over. Every thing you do, do with
great love. People are watching you.

R. Thank God, He ponders the ways of our heart
    for the devil is trying to tell us how
    awful we are. Jesus knows and sees us
    in our best light. He knows our
    faults and still loves us. The devil
    tells us we are all bad. Jesus says,
    you are not perfect, I love you, but
    I want you holy like saints.
    To be totally focused in our faults is
    to lose our light. We must always
    be lights and act with love.

Saw a statue come up - saw a vision
    like heaven

then people I think, but after a while
    bright statue came up to the
    right - so white —

It could have been Falmouth Statue,
    but I think it was daintier —
    bright white

Saw from the waist up.


April 2, 1995 - After Mass Fr. Carters - 9:00a.m.

Shows His Power Over Life and Death

R. He showed them, He had the power to
    raise Lazarus from the dead.
    He called on His Father.

Death has no power over Him, as
    Lazarus was raised from the dead,
    He too was raised up and we
    will be raised up on the
    last day.

Why do we not trust for He truly
    has all the power, over life and


John 11: 25-26

   I am the resurrection.
   Anyone who believes in me,
      even though that person dies, will live,
   and whoever lives and believes in me
      will never die.
   Do you believe this?


R. They saw with human minds, they said
    Lazarus would smell, he was
    dead four days. We see with human

He has the power, He called on His

When He rose from the dead - they were
    afraid. Even though He had told them He would
    rise from the dead.

He explained to the disciples on the way to Emmaus
    the scriptures that pertained to Him from the
    time of Moses and the early prophets.

An insight into our blindness, we need
    His grace to interpret the scriptures.

We see with human minds -
    He gives us His Word.

Just words if taken literally.

Words are Life!!

Words are vibrant when He
    applies His grace, they come

There are all different levels of the Word living in us,
    being enacted in us.

As there is depth to loving Him, there is depth in living in His Word.
It depends on our relationship with Him.

Each Word is so important.


April 2, 1995
Fifth Sunday of Lent

The Sorrowful Mysteries

The Agony in the Garden

1. Jesus: Quiet your hearts and put yourselves in My presence. Let go of all the distractions of your day and all of the things in your mind and focus totally on Me and My Passion.

2. R. See Jesus in the Garden. See as He kneels, He is in such agony. The Apostles are off to the side sleeping.

3. R. Put yourself there and experience as He experienced the sufferings in His Heart, the knowing, to know all that He was about to undergo and to see clearly that He could have, if He wanted to, stop all of it because He was God! But in compliance to the Father's Will and for greatest love of us, He went through this terrible persecution, passion, and death that He was about to undergo.

4. Jesus: Let go to Me, My child! Whatever is in your mind, you must put out of your mind and come to Me. All those with whom you are angry, all those you are feeling upset with, turn them over to Me and meditate now on Me. You must learn to focus on Me and to put other things out of your mind. Say you are sorry if you have offended your brother and totally turn your mind over to Me, for satan is constantly trying to taunt you. I ponder the ways of your heart. I know how you perform your deeds and the love that is in your heart. Let go of everything and focus totally on Me. Be with Me! Be there!

5. R. An angel appeared to Jesus to comfort Him and held the cup before Him. Jesus said to the Father: "Not My will, but Thine be done"!

6. R. Can you imagine what it would be like if you were in the Garden and would see all the events that were about to happen. Think of how we are anxious when we have such small things to do. Then think of what Jesus went through as He knelt in the Garden knowing that His time was near for Him to be handed over to His betrayers.

7. R. The natural fear of death came into play and Jesus saw before Him all of the persecution, all of the wounds, all that they would do to Him, and He said "yes" because He loves us so much!

8. R. Do we know how His Heart was in such agony for the world as it is today for the children that are murdered, for the people that have forgotten God and have turned vile and unkind in their hearts, for all the sins of sex that are happening, and the perverted deeds that are in men's minds? Do we know how Jesus suffered? Think of how we feel when we look at the world the way that it is and we know His immense love and we suffer inside to know this and to know that people are blind and they do not even come to Jesus. But think of how He suffered! He was about to go and die on the cross for love of us. He saw before Him all the souls that would ignore Him and not ever come for the great graces that He could give them.

9. R. His time was at hand! He came to this earth a baby! He came to die, to shed His blood for each and every soul. Jesus saw before Him the souls that would be condemned to the damning fires of hell despite His sufferings.

10. R. Think of how it is to see your children, those you love so much, and watch them make mistakes. Then think of how it is for Jesus who loved each soul dearly and know that they would sin mortally and condemn themselves to hell forever.

Song: I come to you with greatest love etc.


Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar

1. R. Think of the pain of Jesus' Heart. Jesus loved these men who whipped Him.

2. R. We want to be at peace and united to Jesus. Jesus' way is love. Jesus was scourged at the pillar and beaten, Jesus loved those who persecuted Him. Jesus asks us to love all even those who are angry with us. We are to love all men.

3. R. See Jesus as He was beaten, as He was wounded, the wounds that covered His body, the deep wounds! Think of going up to Jesus and seeing the wounds and being so close that you could actually touch Jesus.

4. R. If we were there and we actually saw the wounds so closely that we could touch Jesus, we would realize more what He truly went through because of His great love for us. Visualize as clearly as possible Jesus right before your eyes. See Him covered from the top of His head to His feet with wounds.

5. R. Jesus truly suffered because He loves us so much.

6. R. Jesus and Mary, we love You.

7. R. God can, in one second, give us a grace that will help us to understand and to know Him more deeply. We long to know deeper and deeper and deeper the Mystery of God's love. We want to be one with God more and more, so united that we can say as St. Paul:

Galatians 2: 19-20  ...I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me.

8. R. Ponder deeply the wounds that Jesus suffered. See the wounds covering His flesh, look at His pierced side! This is the love that He has for us this day. Souls this day will be lost to the fire of eternal damnation because of their sins, because of their willfulness and sinful lives. Pray, unite to the Mass through the intercession of Mary, so that these prayers are more powerful to help the souls that are hurting now, that will be condemned to death if they do not turn from their mortal sins. Outpour Your mercy, Oh God, upon us and hear our prayers.

9. R. Think of being so one in Jesus. Pray to the Father, united to Jesus in the Mass, in the Holy Spirit, through the powerful intercession of Mary and the angels and saints and the souls in purgatory. Pray for the souls.

Song: O Burning Heart, O love Divine, how sweet you are to me. I see the host, I know You are here to love and care for me.

10. R. What have we to fear if we realize even a minute amount, the great and ardent love that Jesus has for each one of us?

Song: I come to you with greatest love etc.


Jesus is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

1. R. You are being instructed by Jesus! You are being taught so that you may go out to this world and spread His love with conviction and be so deeply one in Him.

2. R. See Jesus stand in this room with us right now, with a crown of thorns on His head, dripping in blood! See Him stand here and look at us! His head, dripping in blood! See Him stand here and look at us!

3. R. Would we worry about the little incidental things that are parading in our minds, or would we realize how urgent His call is because this world is in such suffering and pain. See Jesus stand before us! What would our next action be?

4. R. How He loves us! They pounded into His head a sharp crown of piercing thorns! The blood ran down His face! The blood ran from His mouth from the blows that they gave to His most precious head! Can we see this clearly? See His face! Picture Him here with us! He loves us so much and He is coming to ask us to answer His call for this world is in such pain. They are so blind! Jesus calls out to us to pray fervently from the deepest recesses of our heart, to be one in Him, so as St. Paul says

Galatians 2: 19-20   ...I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me.

5. Jesus: Does My call fall on deaf ears? I am truly in your midst this day and I am speaking to you, My beloved ones! How can you not answer My call when you see Me covered and dripping with blood?

6. Jesus: You will be the lights that shine in the dark night! You will be the soldiers that go out to the world! I am teaching you lessons now. I am readying you for the days that are ahead. I am truly calling upon you to go out and to speak for Me to spread My messages here, My letters in the Blue Books, these Rosary Meditations.

7. Jesus: Who will do this work if you do not do the work? You - the ones that I am speaking to!

8. Jesus: And they spit on Me and they tore My clothing! They mocked Me and they called Me King! I Am Who Am!

9. Jesus: I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God! I call to you to answer and to go into this world and to spread My love to all.

10. Jesus: You must unite with Me! Let Me operate in you. I want to live in you and operate through you, let go.

Sing: Little Child

Song: I come to you with greatest love etc.


Jesus Carries His Cross up Calvary

1. Jesus: Stand with Mary on the way to Calvary. I look in Mary's eyes. See as I look into your eyes!

2. Jesus: Let go to Me — I am in you — I dwell in your graced, baptized soul.

3. Jesus: You must let go, surrender, consecrate your hearts to My Heart. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus.

4. Jesus: I carried the heavy cross on My back on the way to My death! Think of carrying the cross and knowing that you would soon die!

5. Jesus: Be so fixed on My Passion! Pray to the Spirit to lead you deeper and deeper into an understanding of these events that occurred as I made this walk on My way to My death.

6. R. Spirit, outpour Your gifts upon us, so that we may be more open, so that we will know deeper insights into the mysteries of your love.

7. R. Dear God, we want Your Word deep in us.

8. R. Outpour to us Your grace that we may more deeply understand the Word of God!

Jesus: Listen and be taught — open your hearts and let Me fill you.

9. R. Deeply hear everything God is telling us when we read the Word of God! Deep! Deep! Deep! Everything is deep! Our love becomes deeper! Deeper and Deeper and Deeper we want to penetrate deeper into the mysteries of His life and His Mother's life. Focus on His life in us. As we go about our day, we perform every action as we live in Him.

10. R. Some of His wounds went all the way through (His hands and feet.) Let our love for Jesus be so deep. Let His Word live in us as a two-edged sword.

Song: I come to you with greatest love etc.


Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1. Jesus: See Me dying on the cross! See as I hung for three agonizing hours to My death! What do you see? How deep is your insight into this death? I am love! How deeply do you love one another? You must let go. You must come to Me and let Me operate from your being. To be deeper in love with Me, you must learn how to love one another. I want you to love one another in deep loving relationships. The world has put up walls. They keep themselves from one another. I came and spread My arms wide open. I gave My all. I did not hold anything back. I ask you to open your arms widely and to give your all to Me, to let Me operate from you, to let Me lead you into deep loving relationships with Me and My Father, the Holy Spirit, My Mother, and with one another.

2. Jesus: How is your heart? Is your heart open or is your heart closed? Pray to the Spirit to open your heart! Think of the words that I speak to you. Pray for a greater life in Me. The more I outpour My grace to you, the more you will respond to My love and to My Word.

3. Jesus: Ask to receive abundant graces. Pray every day for grace to be more deeply in love with Me.

4. Jesus: Do you see the world today — I am giving you the Mighty Medicine. I am telling you to spread My letters of love in God's Blue Book and these rosary Meditations to the hurting souls, to the hungry souls. I love you - I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the Flock.

5. Jesus: I tell you of My immense love because I love you so much. I tell you of this immense love and teach you so that you will go into this world and carry My message to all those that you come in contact with. You will speak in front of groups for Me, My beloved ones, use My messages I give here and give My rosary meditations. Listen to My words. Open your hearts wide for you need these teachings to do the work that I am giving you to do.

6. Jesus: You are being taught from Jesus! Will you answer the call and go into this world and spread this love? Look at your Church! Look at those who speak! Do you hear Me speak to you? You can carry this message of My love to this world. Will you answer this call?

7. Jesus: You must come to Me and listen! Listen to every word that I give to you so that every word is intense in its meaning in your heart.

8. Jesus: It is depth, My little ones! See My wounds! Some are shallow, some are a little deeper, some go all the way through! How deep is the love relationship that you want to have with Me? I give you My Divine Love! See the wound in My side. This is the love that I have for you!

9. Jesus: Each person is at a different place on their spiritual journey to Me. It is up to you to open your hearts and let Me penetrate you deeper, deeper, let Me fill you with My life in you. I long to be closer to you and I am calling you to such a union with Me so that you are motivated by My love to go out to this world and be My missionaries.

10. R. See the side of Jesus with the wound that is open! Through that wound, is the beating Heart of God-made-Man, who came to this earth a baby, who lived and died for love of us, and now remains with us this day in the Eucharist. Truly present, no less present than the day He walked on the earth! He calls out to go into the world, to give light to the world through us. Jesus wants to operate and be one in us!

Song: I come to you with greatest love etc.


Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary

1. The Prophecy of Simeon — R. Mary went to the Temple. Simeon met Mary and Joseph. Simeon told Mary of the sufferings, she and Jesus would undergo. Mary held Jesus, Jesus so beautiful. Simeon told Mary of these deep sufferings! And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

2. The Flight into Egypt — R. Mary and Joseph had to flee to Egypt with the baby Jesus, in the middle of the night because of Herod. They prepared for the journey. They had to stay away for a while until it was safe to come back. Such a hardship to get up in the night and to pack and leave.

3. Loss of Jesus in the Temple — R. The child Jesus was lost in the temple, and Mary and Joseph were looking for Him. Help us, Mary, so that we never go from Jesus, but become more and more united to Him. Please outpour Your grace in abundance and help us to cooperate with these graces.

4. The Eyes of Jesus and Mary meet on the Way to Calvary — R. Look at Their eyes, the oneness between Jesus and Mary! Such union! The summation of a whole life in that peering look!

5. Jesus died on the Cross!  Sing: A Song from Jesus Refrain

6. Mary held Jesus in her Arms under the Cross — R. See the lifeless body of Jesus as Mary held Jesus, in the arms of His loving Mother! See the horror in her face to behold her beloved Son. Mary holds Him now, His lifeless body! Mary once held His little body in her arms filled with life, now she holds His body in her arms. Look at her face and look at her eyes. This is the final curtain! He came to bring us new life.

7.  Jesus is Locked in the Tomb — R. Fear and anger were outside the tomb in the guard's hearts that guarded Jesus. They locked Jesus in the tomb and they were happy that they had locked Jesus in. All Jesus did was love. But they locked Him in the tomb!


R. This rosary was prayed before the Pieta statue in back of the Holy Rosary Chapel at the Holy Spirit Center. Jesus was present in the Tabernacle in that Chapel. Rita, Cathy, Joe, Gerald and Donna Schlautman, and Marty were present.

Rita stated that she saw a light all around and within the Pieta statue during the rosary.



April 3, 1995 - 6:00a.m.

My Love is Deep

Jesus: As I was wounded with many different wounds,
    little wounds, deeper wounds and
    wounds that went entirely through
    My hands and feet, people love Me in
    all different levels. Some love Me
    on the surface, some love Me deeply.
    My love is endless, only in heaven
    will your desire for love be satisfied.

People are on all different levels. My Church
    has barely scratched the surface of
    My deep love. They are going through
    the motions. My love is endless,
    My love is penetrating. You can
    go ever deeper into the abyss of
    My love.

You see with human minds. An ocean of
    love I have to give you. You stand
    by the shore and put your toes in.

My beloved, immerse yourself deeply into
    My Heart.

Come through My pierced side. This is
    My deepest wound for it goes into
    the deepest recesses of My Heart. Deep, deep,
    deep is My love for you. Focus on the wound
    in My side. What flowed out was Blood and
    water. I immerse you in the vat of My
    love. Water washes you clean. Come to
    My Heart ever pure. Only a pure heart
    can unite deeply with My Heart.
    My ways are difficult. I am a fountain of
    mercy and love. Come to My Heart
    through My pierced side.

    Water I give to you to wash you, My
babies, My loved ones, My beloved, Oh
how I want to be ever joined to you in
such oneness. I give to you My body and
blood to eat. Such closeness. You scratch
the surface and settle for so little. You
measure everything you do. My love is
immeasurable. You do not know even
a little the depths of My love.

    Quiet your fears. I am ever attentive to
your every need. Let go, surrender and you
will have peace. You are fighting My
infinite love. You stand on the shore and
stick in your toe, immerse yourself in
the pool of My love. You will never doubt again.



April 5, 1995

Pray on the 5ths

Mary: On April 5, 1995, I called the first public gatherings of rosaries given on the 5th to the public.

R. She said it is 5 because of the 5 wounds of Jesus and the 5 blasphemies against her.

Jesus: My Mother called April 5, 1995 and asked for public gatherings on the 5ths to help make reparation to Our Hearts for the offenses against Them. 


March 5, 1995 - Fr. Carter's Mass

Overwhelmed with the Father's love

R. God loves us no matter how I am. He loves
us unconditionally. In all of our faults
and all of our failings in His great
goodness Jesus loves us.

Jesus: I give to you My child, My abundant
life. I outpour to you My abundant
grace. I draw you ever closer to My
beating Heart. Do not ever be bowed
down. Know the immensity of the
Father's love for you. He so loved this
world that He gave His only Son for
love of you.

R. To realize that the Father loved
me so much He sent His only Son
into this world to free me from
my Sins, so I would be with Him
forever in heaven.

    The Father loved me so much
He sent His Son as a Sacrifice and
Jesus took on human form.

    I realize so immensely the love
of the Father, manifest in His
Son, Jesus Christ.

    If we realize our oneness with God and
His great love, we cannot help but realize
our oneness with one another. If I am
one with Him, if I realize His immense
love, I don't have to worry what others think,
I am to love them. I see them
as my brother who I love and want
to give love to. I see more with the eyes
of God, with kindness and compassion and
love, of being united out of love.

    Bathe me in Your love; fill me and saturate
me so I am bursting with Your light — Your life
in me. Let this love of God radiate to all and
unite us forever deeply in the love of our
beloved Father. For we truly are little
children, we are brothers and sisters
and He is our Father, Mary is our most
loving Mother, Jesus is my most
intimate Spouse and the Holy Spirit
my dearest friend.

    Realizing the love of the Father creates
such oneness with one another. We are filled
with His love. He loves us unconditionally.
I am one with everyone in the room.
My Father created each soul, Jesus
redeemed each soul. I am one with
them. As members of the Body of Christ
we are one.

I am one in Him, I cannot have division
    with one man and be united to Him.
    To unite to Him more deeply I must
    be one with them.

The Father so loved me He gave His only
    Son. If I realize this, I want to love

The more I become one in Him, I love
    every man.


April 5, 1995

Come Deep in My Heart

Jesus: My dearly beloved,

    As you live and breathe, I live and breathe
in you.

    Come so close to Me, deeply into My Heart. You
child have been touched by God, write of your experiences.

R. It is now the 5th and Mary has called a special
rosary. I opened this book and what I saw was
Mary has called a special rosary.

I am overwhelmed by the presence of the Father,
Son and Holy Spirit in this moment I touch eternity for
the exposed Eucharist is here and He is in this

Jesus: See My blood, red thick, it is through the blood
pouring from My wounds that you are saved. I
bathe you in the waters of salvation, I wash
you in My Blood. I am Jesus, the Son of God,
I speak to you here.

R. A weight has been lifted and I behold the face of
God in our midst. This face is seen through
the eyes of Faith.

Jesus: Faith My child, you can move a mountain
with faith in Me.

I wash you, I clean you, I care for you. Come
and enter through My wounded side.

R. Jesus in the tomb and on the third day
He rises from the dead, His body is glorified,
He drops the wrappings, the earth quakes
and Jesus comes forth from the tomb.

Death has no power over Him.

They had locked Him away in a tomb and
    He came forth triumphant from
    the dead.

He has risen, we are His faithful witnesses.

He has shed the bonds of this earth and
    risen triumphant to His glory.

Song: Glory, Glory, Glory Lord




April 6, 1995 - Blue Book Meeting

Jesus: If a person is dying then you think
they should be praying.

    If you are reading this letter, you
should be praying as if today might
be your last day.

    The day is promised to no man, souls
will be condemned to eternal damnation.
You delay no longer.

    I have called, I am ignored. I will
not give you any signs, read these
letters My beloved ones. You want
signs and wonders, My word is

    To have union with Me you must
be rooted in faith.

    You look for signs and wonders, you
want Me to tell you everything

    Blessed are they who have not seen
and have believed. When you want
more signs, you are weakening your faith.
A relationship with Me is based on
a deep faith. Spend time alone with Me
in front of the tabernacle, time
alone at home. You are looking for
your answers in the world.

    I speak to you in your hearts in
the silent moments you spend with
Me. I cannot speak if you do not
take time to listen.

    Every person involved in this
renewal needs to spend one hour of
silent prayer with Me each day,
preferably in front of the tabernacle.
How satan will busy your minds to
distract you and you go without
your supplies.

    Children, read My messages in
the Blue Books. I am talking
to you. You say you do not have time for
My messages. You are missing My
letters given to you. Open the
book anywhere and you will be given
your answers. I love you, so much,
I am Jesus your ardent lover and
friend. Come and I will comfort thee.

R. If we do not go to Him to find the answers
we sometimes find the wrong answers.



April 6, 1995

Oh Death Where is your Sting?

R. See His glorified body, glistening, oh death where
    is your sting.

Why do you look for the living among the dead?
He has risen as prophets foretold.

Sing: I Am the Bread of Life

Sing: New Life

R. Think of the mystery that Christ rose triumphant from

power to forgive sins and baptize

Not a Prisoner — He Rises from the Dead
'Thou Hast Broken My Bonds'

Physical Life Lazarus — rose from the dead

Joy has been purchased through deepest suffering


Luke 24: 26

Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer before entering into his glory?’


R. Through sorrow and pain — we trace His bloody footprints.

Mortal sin is death — it is a fatal tomb — the enemy does all he can
    to keep the soul locked in the tomb.

At the sound of His voice let us rise from sin.

Dying and Rising in Him —


Mission — by the Father — uniquely created
goes to prepare a place for us; This is His promise
opens the gates of heaven, souls held in captivity are released.



Jesus remains with us
Mary is the Mother of the Church
We are on a spiritual journey

Jesus opened the gates of heaven
Why do you look for the living among the dead?

Incidentally, I recently visited St. Gertrude's Priory (Dominican) in Cincinnati and during the Prayer of the Faithful, one of the friars prayed for Fr. Joe by name. After Vespers I asked why, and was told Fr. Joe was to have surgery the next day. I hope and pray he is well and will be blessed with many more years of happy priestly ministry. God bless you and the Shepherds as well.

21. 11/1/11 - priest - Each time I hear from you I get to know you a little better and have a greater appreciation for the wonderful work of the Shepherds of Christ. I want to thank you for the homilies of Fr. Joe for the B Cycle I've recently received. Does your group pray for bishops and deacons? They need prayers too. I'll keep on praying for your group just as you pray for me. It's affirming to know that someone is praying for you.

22. 11/11 - priest - Thank you for sending me the book "Guiding Light".

23. 11/2/11 - priest - Just a short but sincere word of thanks and appreciation for your prayers and the book of homilies by Fr. Joe Robinson which you recently sent. Please also pray for our work here at the University that we may nurture many vocations for God's Kingdom. May the Lord continue to bless you and your community.

24. 11/11 - priest - Thank you very much for sending me Homilies Cycle "B". May God bless you with appreciation and prayer.

25. 11/11 - priest - Thank you for copy of Fr. Joe's Homilies and for your prayers and apostolate. I am a 84 year old priest who still supplies at three Indian Missions. Three Sisters also serve there.

26. 11/11 - priest - The enclosed check is for the recent copy of "Reflect on the Word". I recently received and to cover the cost of the order I am placing for a priest I know in Tennessee. I enjoy Fr. Joe's homilies and I am still waiting for him to publish funeral homilies. God bless you in your work.






The Building of the Two Hearts


1. A gentleman from Florida called and said since he got the Fatima Statue with glass his life has been transformed. 3/3/2009

2. After using the Jesus water, pain and non-movement (for 3 years) in my fingers was healed instantly. Now fingers are cracking and working and no pain. Has taken x-rays. 10-19-2008

3. Ruptured ACL Ligament and PCL ligament left leg (knee) and damaged meniscus. 3-4 weeks excruciating pain. MRI showed damaged ligaments - went to do surgery and scopes revealed no damage other than meniscus injury. Day before surgery we came here to pray for healing. Wife anointed knee with Jesus water. Were told prior to surgery that would be out of work 3-6 months and surgery would be 4 hours. Surgery was only 40 minutes and recovery time is 1-2 weeks.  8/13/2008

4. My best friend (a couple) was granted a son, which now is my godson. They've been married for a long time but never had a child until they both came to see the Virgin Mary's image.  8/4/2007

5. I just wanted to tell you we have had so many prayers answered most especially since we have had the image statue in our home a few months ago. Prayers being miraculously answered for our children & grandchildren, our daughter's heart has literally almost healed ... she is also pregnant and that is also a miracle that she carried the baby this far, she is so thankful and also her cardiologist can't figure out how she is doing so well, and even agreed with her it must be prayers being said for her. He also told her in her 4th month to abort the baby, maybe he will have a conversion, we hope. Others in my family have changed since we got the statue. They are more understanding and patient and love being a Catholic more than ever before ...We thank Jesus, Mary, Rita and you all. Praise all of heaven. We are also so eager to have many more prayers answered. We are giving our married children a 10 inch statue each for their homes and red prayer manual if they would also like to say the prayers if they so choose to. The statue we know will help them with many graces as they pray before it as it has helped us in our home and lives. Love you all.  8/3/2007

6. Pregnancy. (A long note about how a woman got pregnant after she came to the Virgin Mary Building.) 3/21/2008

7. My mother was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in April 2005. She received the Jesus water of Clearwater that my brother brought to El Salvador. She was treated at Instituto Salvadoreno del Segino Social. She was expected to live 3-6 months. She lived well for 2 years. Now she rests in peace with Lord Jesus and Virgin Mary. She died of Pneumonia March 21, 2007.  4/27/2007

8. The CAT scan showed a dark spot and they thought they would have to remove my right kidney. My family went to the Blessed Mother and asked for prayers and help. They also got the healing water. Well all our prayers were answered. There was no cancer or tumor. Thanks for all your prayers and help, and thanks to the Lord above.  4/18/2007

9. Knees were injured from motorcycle accident July/August 2006. His mom got the water in Florida right after the accident and took it to him and he used it every day and now his knees are completely healed. He knows Jesus water did it. 1/9/2007

10. Suspected blood clot. Pain in leg with swelling. Jesus water was used and pain went away and swelling. 12/31/2006

11. Barretrs -- My husband brought Jesus water to hospital and put on my stomach. Biopsy came back fine.  12/27/06

12. A man from South Carolina came to thank Jesus and Mary for his healing. His brother sent him Jesus' water when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Three doctors told him there was nothing they could do for him. He started using Jesus' water and started feeling better (He could hardly walk, he was using a wheelchair a lot). He went back to the doctor and tests showed no more cancer — gone! The doctor told him he never saw this happen before. He is around 70 years old and walks and feels normal.   2006

13. A lady from Egypt wrote asking St. Mary for a baby for 3 years. She helped me and now I have a little daughter. Her name is Mariam after St. Mary name by my language. Thank God and Thank St. Mary. She always remembers me. - Egypt  10/25/2006

14. This woman filled out a healing form at the site. I am so blessed by the Blessed Mother that she has been there for me on more than several occasions. She performed a miracle on all occasions, one in particular was cancer of the right leg. The doctors wanted to cut my leg off the cancer was in the bone. When I returned to New York and went to a plastic surgeon he saw the cat scan and said my chances weren't good. When he did the surgery the cancer was not in the bone. It was superficial.  9/2/2006

15. Stroke. Healed August 2006. 9/2/2006

16. A year ago he went to Orlando for a test on his prostate. It was positive. He came here in May and got some Jesus water out of the trough. He went back to the doctor and he was healed. - Venezuela  8/25/2006

17. Infertility. Conceived and gave birth exactly 9 months after our first visit to Clearwater in August 2000. Our son was born exactly 9 months after our visit (May 20, 2001). I've had surgeries on both ovaries in 1998 and had very little chance of conceiving. Mother Mary gave us our blessing and wish. 7/21/2006

18. Peter was operated on for cancer he had for 10 years on his leg and because the wound was so big, they had to take some skin from another part of his leg to be able to fix it but it did split. So Monday the doctor said that another surgery was needed but thanks to Jesus water on Wednesday on that same week he was healed. - Argentina   7/2/2006

19. Cancer of the lungs. A friend of ours who we visit from Canada. He told us of his illness and we came and prayed at the Virgin Mary's appearance on March 28, 2006. He had Jesus' water put on him the night before his surgery. His surgery was on March 31 and the cancer was gone. Thank you for your blessings.  4/2/2006

20. Lower back muscle strain. After straining my back I used the Jesus water before using pain crθme. After putting on the water I no longer needed the crθme. The strain was gone.  3/16/2006

21. Neuropathy. He had gotten Jesus water a few days ago and went to the doctor yesterday.  3/15/2006

22. Pregnancy. I could not become pregnant. I came here to ask Mary to extend her hands on me, to be able to have a child. The miracle happened. I did not know that other women had become pregnant by asking Mary. My son is 3 years old. I am convinced that he is called to be special in his life, he has a mission. When she went to see the doctor, specialists, they said forget it, she couldn't have a baby, and she went to many different ones. Came here to pray and became pregnant. All the doctors never understood what had happened. They said he is a miracle child. 3/8/2006

23. Pregnancy. Became pregnant of twin girls after we prayed in 2005 and even have a statue of the Virgin Mary in our yard. After 15 years of concubinage Virgin Mary finally blessed us. Thanks. Thanks. Thanks. Jesus water was used to help conceive. 2/2/2006

24. A woman came in today from New York and said she was here last March (2005) and got the Jesus water. Her cousin who was very healthy and had just retired at age 60 suffered a massive stroke. He was taken to the best neurological hospital in New York and the doctors said he had no chance of recovery. He had a blood clot at the base of his brain stem. He was in intensive care and the woman with the other family members were visiting him and she put Jesus water on him and they prayed over him, while he was laying in bed in a fetal position unable to talk was paralyzed. After she had left (only 30 minutes of visitation in Intensive Care) the woman received a call from her cousin's wife saying the man had sat up in bed after they left and was miraculously healed. He is back at home now. The doctors came in and said this was a miracle. This was 2 months ago.  1/24/2006

25. Dermatomyositis (a form of Muscular Dystrophy). I was given 6 months to live. I was really depressed ready to give up when, while being in town for my girlfriends niece's Christmas Party. I heard it on the news. (December 17, 1996) Decided why not let's go, when I got here I was not expecting to see what I saw. I couldn't believe what I saw. Within an hour I put the cane down, slowly but surely got better enough where I wasn't paralyzed or dead. Thank you Jesus and Mary.  12/16/2005

26. Small Bowel Syndrome. Infant acquired surgical intervention at birth. 4 months care at home. Healed completely as of May 2005.    11/24/2005

27. Newborn very sick - 2 lbs. My mother came to visit me. We used to live in the post apartments by Target. I brought my Mother to the Virgin Mary Building in Clearwater and she prayed for my niece, who was in Guatemala. When my Mother returned to Guatemala she took the picture of Virgin Mary and put it in my niece's room. When my niece was born, she needed a tube feeding. She couldn't eat on her own. She was very thin and very sick. Many people told my sister and my mother (including the doctors) that my niece was so sick that she probably would died. Thank to our Lady Virgin Mary, my niece is a healthy gifted 9 year old girl. - Guatemala - Healing was at 6 months old. 11-22-2005

28. My daughter was told she had thyroid cancer, after having one side of the thyroid removed they found the cancer was gone. This had to be due to Mary and Jesus Water and her belief in the Mother and Son.  9/17/2005

29. Virus. He was in Egypt. His relatives came to the site and asked for prayers for healing for him. That same day they were here he was completely healed of his Liver virus. He is a physician.  8/31/2005

30. After waiting about 8 months for the baby to get bigger for the surgery, the doctor checked him and couldn't believe it, but she said, "It just fixed itself." He was 4 months premature and this surgery would have lowered his sperm count significantly and its already been lowered by a double inguinal hernia surgery. 6-14-2005  

31. Burst tube with unexpected pregnancy. Was internal bleeding. Doctor told was miracle, surviving from this kind of operation. She (the mother) had come to the site and prayed to God if this Image (Our Lady of Clearwater) was from God to grant her a miracle. Her daughter who was in Lithuania at the time was in the hospital and the above miracle happened during the 2 hours the mother was praying at the site.  5/4/2005

32. Heart failure. He was not breathing. Jesus water was poured on him while praying. He started breathing again. 4/23/2005

33. When I was pregnant, my baby was sick. My baby born was well. Thanks.  4/18/2005

34. Flu. Both sitting in car, praying rosary both sick of flu. He very sick, not getting better. Both used the water, felt pain leave body, didn't say anything, but after few minutes he said "I feel pain is gone." They drove back to tell us that they were healed. 4/18/2005

35. Asthma. Put Jesus water on neck. Breathing much better. 4/17/2005

36. Severe back pain. Have a bad back from laying brick for years and sometimes I bend over and the pain is severe and it takes at least 3 or 4 or more weeks for it to go away. I put Jesus water on it and it went away in 2 days. Alleluia.  4/16/2005

37. I must admit that some days I forget to wash in the water. But I have felt the same feeling once again a few days ago as I did on March 2nd, the first time I applied it to my knees. On the movie that you took, I am walking on the beach without a cane. I don't know if you noticed. I didn't use the cane yesterday, and I have no pain. I'm still slow at climbing the stairs, but I'm seeing a tremendous improvement. I'll keep a journal, and continue updating you I pray a lot, as I'm applying the medicine. Part of my prayer is "If it be your will." Thank you. I'll be in touch soon. 3/11/2005

38. My husband had a good friend and he was diagnosed with cancer and given less than a few weeks to live. Jesus told me to take him the Jesus water. I never really met him, but I went to the hospital. He was so sick. He bounced up and said I knew it - I will be healed. And he lived over two years longer.

39. Leukemia went into remission February 7, 2003. Her doctor can't believe how well she is doing. She has the worse kind of Leukemia there is and she is doing extremely well. He said this does not happen, so soon, we told him its because of all the prayers, everyone is saying for her. The day after we visited the Blessed Mother Building, her blood count was excellent. Thank you so much. As of 11/3/2004 she is still in remission and doing very well, a happy 10 year old little girl. We are all so thankful for all the prayers from everyone, we truly believe, if we hadn't had our faith and by going to the Virgin Mary building so often, we wouldn't have been so fortunate to have her. Prayer is still the most powerful and healing process. Thank you so much.  11/3/2004

40. Spinal Manangitas. December 16th, 2002 we almost lost our little grandson. He was taken flight for life to Madison where they worked on him for hours. They told us he would either be blind - deaf - brain damage, or he might not walk. Today he is a happy - healthy little boy full of life. Thanks to everyone's prayers to our Blessed Virgin and our heavenly Father, without them we would not have him. Thank you. As of this date November 3, 2004 our little grandson is doing very well, a healthy happy little boy, and so full of life, and without any complications. Our prayers and by going to the Virgin Mary building truly helped this little boy. Thanks to everyone for all their prayers. 11/3/2004

41. After my family visited the Virgin Mary and returned to hospital, I showed no sign of having a stroke. Doctors at hospital said I would not recover.  4/2001

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

$ 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

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
